Re: hppavilion zv 6000 laptop

Had this problem with at least 50 people at work with this model.

HP sent out a bad patch for this computer's wireless card. You have to go into device manager then roll back the driver to the previous driver.

If you keep allot of restore points, check the calendar for when this driver was updated.

If you dont have a driver to roll back to, then uninstall the wireless card and then restart the pc.

When the pc restarts, it will auto detect a wireless card and install the generic Microsoft drivers for a wireless card.

Call me crazy but at work the Microsoft drivers worked 99% of the time. If they did not work then it was a hardware problem which HP has to fix.

Notebook won't connect wifi

Hi, assuming your laptop is switched on.
Above the keyboard on the right side are the three 'Easy buttons'. The one on the left is for the wireless function.

Push this button to activate or deactivate the Wireless LAN. When you activate the wireless LAN function, it will search for a wireless LAN signal automatically (assuming you have the wireless LAN driver installed). Just below the screen on the right side is the Status LED Panel, which show six icons, each with its own LED. The first one on the left indicates Wireless LAN status. When the LED is displaying a green light, it indicates that the system is accessing data from, or retrieving data by wireless LAN. So whenever you press the Easy button, you should see the green status light come on or go off. To repeat, if the light is not on, you need to press the Wireless LAN 'Easy Button'. NOTE! If you can't get the button to come on, you will need to re-install the Wireless LAN driver.

How i do keep my wireless switched on

There should be an option to "automatically connect" when it detects the network. Look for a checkbox.

create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options in the connections tab tick in the box never dial a connection

below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you
have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them

Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot before proceeding.

Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.

From the pop-up menu select "Enable."

This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.

Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.

After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.

Right-click the wireless icon again.

From the pull-up menu choose to view all available wireless networks in the area.

A window appears with all the networks your computer receives some sort of signal from.

Select the wireless network you want access to, type in the password (if required) and click "Connect." Momentarily the laptop computer connects to the Internet.

you should be able to, it depends on the laptop, the os, the wireless adapter, and the settings .

click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'

(or similar) and click 'enable'.

right click on the network in the bottom toolbar select open network sharing center

you should have the options to either connect or disconnect or set up a network connection

this will vary depending on your operating system

hope this helps

How do i turn on wireless on acer aspire 4720z ?

The far left button below the start button (middle, top) is the wireless button. It seems this button is finicky and the led doesn t always light. Open the control panel and access the Windows Mobility Center at the bottom. The wireless feature enable button will not be accessible if the wireless button is not activated. While on this screen press the far left button that has a dish network symbol and keep pressing it over and over until the button on the mobility center panel is enabled. This is the only clue you will have on whether the button is on or off.
