Question about HP G70-250us Notebook

1 Answer

I have a HP G70 with an Atheros AR5009 WiFi adapter. I use an Apple Time Machine/Wireless router. My Macs stay connected to the router with no problem. My HP drops multiple times a day. All drivers are up-to-date. What suggestions do you have to keep my HP online wirelessly without the drops?

Hi, did you get this problem resolved? I am having the same issues but cannot seem to find anything to resolve. I have a hp g70 running vista. Sometimes the connection can be stable for hours but then other times it disconnects every few minutes. I know the router is working fine as I have 2 other laptops that never drop the connection and my ps3 and phone always stay connected as well. Thinking now that I have got to take it back

I'm using a HP dv6-1101ax notebook. Recently, we switched to using a Belkin F5D8235-4 wireless N Router. Every laptop in the network works fine except for mine, which constantly disconnects about 5-30...


You cant trust HP anymore, my dad had 3 of their laptops and they all did the same thing and after about a year the motherboard crashed.
I suggest if you are sitting near the router, then buy a short LAN cable to hook up, then it should work.
Hope this helps

Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655


The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.

Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:

1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.

So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.

So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.

You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.

HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.

I have compaq presario Model CQ50-130US. I trying to find its drivers but invain. Please help.


(1) SATA DRIVER

"32-bit Floppy Configuration Utility"

filename = f6flpy3286.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=2101&DwnldID=17061&lang=eng

Unzip the contents, add one component (iaAHCI.inf) into your nLite (a free slipstreaming program) slipstream build and you will avoid Blue Screen of Death when you try to install WinXP. Note: select Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller when you add iaAHCI.inf to your slipstream. Or you can just add all the drivers.

After you get XP up and running, you can install the rest of the drivers for the notebook:

(2) CHIPSET

"CHIPSET_INF Update Utility - Primarily for Intel 4, 3, 900 Series Chipsets"

filename = infinst_autol.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2991&DwnldID=16026&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

For the executable version (filename = infinst_autol.exe), use this link from Intel:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/16023/a08/infinst_autol.exe&agr=&ProductID=816&DwnldId=16023&strOSs=&OSFullName=&lang=eng


(3) GRAPHICS

"Intelâ® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows* XP (zip)"

filename = win2k_xp14364.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=2991&DwnldID=17116&lang=eng

You'll unzip the contents of that zip, and then point your drive update to the folder with those contents to update your graphics.

(4) AUDIO (2-step process)

(a) Conexant Patch (do this first)

"Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio class driver version 1.0a available for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000"

filename = kb888111.exe

http://www.filewatcher.com/m/kb888111.exe.682200.0.0.html

(b) Install audio drivers

"Conexant Audio Driver for Windows XP"

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&softwareitem=ob-10516-1&printable=no&encodeUrl=true&

(5) NETWORK ADAPTER (wired)

Realtek RTL8100E/RTL8101E/RTL8102E-GR/RTL8103E(L)/RTL8102E(L) NIC Driver 5.714

filename = PCIE_Install_5714_0216.zip

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/REALTEK/Realtek-RTL8100E-RTL8101E-RTL8102E-GR-RTL8103E-L-RTL8102E-L-NIC-Driver-5714.shtml

(6) NETWORK ADAPTER (wireless)

Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5006 802.11a/b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5009 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter
(version 7.6.0.114)

filename = sp39403.exe
