Re: cant get online or pick up a wireless network?

If your computer is not able to connect through wireless network firstly you just switched off the wireless button. There is a key button above the number key which looks like a Tower. If you have tried all the thing then try to reset the router, reinstalling the router, if then also it was not connected then check your network network port. Assurance Wireless

Re: cant get online or pick up a wireless network?

A couple of issues and questions

First generally a wireless router in installed onto a network either to the ISP's modem or to another router that is connected to an ISP's modem it is not connected on the wan side to a computer (unless that computer is acting as a firewall or proxy server to the internet). Computers are generally connected with a wire to the (optional) switch portion of a wireless router or wireless connection.

Have you tried testing with a computer wired to the router to assure internet access is possible without worrying about wireless issues?

If you are considering encrypting the wireless router did you test it unencrypted first to assure the unencrypted radio transmissions work?

Is the wireless communication encrypted for other computers you own and possibly not for the HP you are now trying to connect?

Are you sure the distance between the wireless router and the garage is not an issue. Perhaps you could test and configure the connection in the room with the router and when it is working move it to the garage.

According to the product specs for the HP Pavilion it has built in wireless B & G you did not include the router manufacturer and model does it operate on the either wireless B or G?

How do i hookl up my westell dsl2+ router to my hp pavilion touchsmart 14 sleekbook please help

What I hear you saying is that you want to establish a Wireless connection from the computer to the router in order to share the internet connection. Assuming the router is properly set up and other computers can access the internet with it already, you will then just need to open the HP Pavilion's Network connections and find the router in the list of wireless networks. A further assumption is that the wireless network will not be open, meaning that a password has been set for it. When you click to connect to the wireless network, it will ask for the password.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.
also make sure that the DHCP server is enabled on the router.
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

You are using a B wireless adater on windows XP computer.
Tere might be adapter utility installed on your computer. You can use that software to connect to the wireless network or you can switch over to windows software to connect.
It will be better if you use the WINDOWS XP to connect to the network.
Check the wireless settings of the router also.

Check if you are getting an ip address...there is a possibility that eventhough you are connected you are not getting a valid ip address. Are you trying to connect to the same network or same SSID?
