Hp pavillion laptop allows me to log on. Then as it loads up screen flashes and a blue circular disc appears by the curso. It says limited wifi. No problem with the WiFI connecting my phone to it.


Does your phone use the Wifi antenna from your laptop? or the receiver? or the software? When your laptop indicates it has a problem with the Wifi connection, it has. What is causing this should be looked after in the laptop, like did you setup the connection correct? Is the setting still correct? or did something change the settings or even reset the settings?
Just check everything about the wireless connection in the laptop to see if you can get it working again. If it was never working before, just setup the connection.

How to install a printer on laptop?


If you don't have the original installation disc, look at the brand and version of your printer. Go to the main website for the manufacturer and search for the version of your printer. There should be a download available. Download this to your laptop. Use a USB cable or the cable that comes with the printer and plug it into your computer and the back of the printer. After you've done this, run the installation software on your laptop and follow the instructions. Unplug when the installation is complete, or if you have wifi and the printer is compatible, follow the instructions to also connect it for wireless printing.

Wireless connection with a wireless router (Netgear WNDR 4000) a pc and a laptop.


I assume you connect your printer to the desktop with the USB cable.
I assume the laptop is connected to the Wifi network.

First you need to setup the printer to connect to the wireless network. Follow the printer installation instructions to do that.
Next insert the install Disc into the laptop and follow the installation instructions. Use the network installation section.

The printer has a built-in server for printing.
If UPNP is enabled on the router then you should be able to browse the printer on the network.

Why won't my printer scan a document to my laptop?


Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your laptop. The software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you still haven't installed the software on your computer and you don't have the installation disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to request for one.
If you were able to scan documents before using your Lexmark printer, it could be just a slight communication issue. A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).

How to connect new laptop to router


Hello
In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
Click on "Properties."
Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.
Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution
Good luck
