Wireless connectivity problems

I just got a hp pavilion dv6500 with vista home premium and can't connect to unsecured wi-fi spots. Popular spots that other computers are connected at too. My wireless assistant says i'm connected but I can't access any webpages on firefox or iexplore. I've read that it is a common problem with vista, is this true?
I read that this will work but i'm not sure if it's for my particular problem:
I'm also scared to mess with my registry. So i'm reluctant to do that. Please let me know if there is a proven solution to this.
Thank you for your time,

    thanks for the response, although It didn't work..My hp dv6000 is still having problems...Again I can connect per say at least thats what my connection says but I can't access any webpages. I can connect to a wired network, but just not to unsecured wi-fi hotspots...I have it on auto configure so it's not set on a certain proxy..I don't understand why it won't access webpages..
    thanks again

That's a stupid solution, the guy can't get to network property that's why he's asking and your solution is to use network property to fix it.

I'm trying to help someone with a similar problem. Thought this might have been helpful.

Knowing that Vista is still in its test phases, this would be considered common, not just for vista, but any new product on the market that has only been tested in a closed environment.
Now I have found that sometimes when you surf the web using a wireless card. What happens is those places that you have surfed the web are stored in your network cards preferred network. So it would first be a good idea to dump some of those from the network first. Here is how it is done!
Right click on your the Icon to the left of the light that looks like a mini computer with lines that look like this ))) next to it. This is your wireless network icon. Once you right click on this click on repair, this will cycle through a proces that will release an IP address, and reset the wireless adapter.
If this does not work try to go through the same steps:
Right click on the wireless ICon
click on open network connections
A Network Property Box will open
Right click on the wireless Network connection
Wirless connection property box will open
click on the wireless networks tab
Look for Preferred networks
there should be a window with a ton of networks
you have been near or surf the web from
Delete some of these places from this box
I would delete them all
Now if it is your home network you are trying to get into
manually setup the connection by doing the following:
Click on the add button
You will be asked to put in an SSID
if you setup a network just put the name of that SSID into this box
If a WEP/WPA is setup type in those settings
If it network authentication is OPEN make certain to select OPEN if it is Shared make sure to indicate Share
otherwise you will not be able to get onto the network
click on OK and the network adapter should scan for the network if you did everything correct you should be able to surf the web!

I can'tload Web pages but wifi is on. Am using windows 8. What can I do to solve the priblem

There is a difference between Wi-Fi being on and Wi-Fi being connected. In Settings you can turn on Wi-Fi. All this does is turn on the Wi-Fi radio receiver.

With the receiver turned on you should then be able to view a list of Wi-Fi routers. You will probably see a little lock towards the bottom of the virtual radio signal symbol. These locked Wi-Fi stations cannot be connected to unless you have the right password to log onto them. Most people these days have secured their Wi-Fi routers so unauthorized folks cannot use them.

If you are using your own home router or wireless hotspot from a telecom, you will still have to select it from the list of Wi-Fi routers shown and click connect. If you haven't already entered a password, you will have to enter one.

This can all be done from them Charms menu that slides out on the right. Click Settings and Wi-Fi available.

Wlan card disabled

The Dell Latitude E6400 laptop comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor for fast computing and an NVIDIA graphics card for video playback, gaming and Web browsing. The laptop has a built in Wi-Fi card, letting you connect to the Internet on-the-go. However, if you're unfamiliar with Dell or the laptop's factory installed Windows Vista operating system, you might not know how to enable to Wi-Fi.

Slide the switch on the side of the laptop toward the front of the laptop. This switch enables Wi-Fi connectivity on the Dell Latitude E6400. When switched into the back position, the Wi-Fi is turned off. Turn on your Dell Latitude E6400 laptop and log into Windows Vista. Click on the Windows "Start" button. Click on "Wireless," located in the Start menu's "Show" list. A list of currently broadcasting wireless networks appears on screen. With your Wi-Fi enabled, you can connect to any of these available networks. Secured networks ask you for a password when you click "Connect," while unsecured networks connect automatically.

I cant get my tablet to connect to wifi

Android tablets, unlike Android phones, don't require mobile phone service or a contract with a mobile phone company, and several models use Wi-Fi for network connectivity. The Android 3.0 operating system, known as Honeycomb, is designed specifically for tablets, and has the same features for Wi-Fi connections that are available with earlier versions of Android. Android tablets support wireless connections encrypted by both WEP and the more-secure WPA.

Tap the "Apps" menu on the tablet screen. Touch "Settings." Touch "Wireless and Networks" and select "Wi-Fi Settings." Tap the "Wi-Fi" box to turn on Wi-Fi. The Android tablet scans for available Wi-Fi networks and displays them on-screen under "Wi-Fi Networks." Tap an available Wi-Fi network. Touch "Connect" if it is unsecured, or enter the password or passcode for the encrypted connection.
Tap "Connect."

When i go to free wifi spots, my dell latitude D800 will not open(the internet), i can access the internet just fine at home, i have internet service at home. how can i get the internet to come up when im...

When you are home, you should hopefully have a secure wireless connection. When you are not home you willl need to change the access point so you can connect to a free wi-fi connection.

When you want to connect to a free wi-fi connection, do this:

Click Start, Settings, and choose Network Connections. Look at the possibilities for connection assuming your PC is within range and the wireless card picks up the signal. Choose from one of the connections - choose the fastest and best one you can find. NOTE that these connections are usually NOT secure and you should not share personal information or do any banking, credit card purchasing, etc on an unsecure connection. Chatting is ok, but still exercise caution....there are lots of bad guys out there who would love to meet you and steal your identity, banking information...or worse. Better safe than sorry.

When you get back home, you will have to change the connection type back again to your home network so you can re-connect there.

I have a Asus A626 and i would like to know how you get internet on my device .

Make sure that there is a hot spot around that is unsecured for free access. If not, you'll have to get an access code. A wireless router works best.

I had the same problem. I installed something that was supposed to help me connect faster, but it messed up my whole system. I hard reset it and tried it out with the new router we got. I turned on the wi-fi and it asked me if I wanted to connect. Ever since it works.

Have you been able to connect through your router at home? I'd get that set up and running first. Then doing it on the road will merely be variations on a familiar theme. If you've tried at home but it hasn't worked, let us know something about your home network (what kind of router? using security/encryption?), and about what you've already tried so we can try to help.
