If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.

I have a Presario MR2305NR with a similar problem, I went so far as to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows & drivers. WLAN still disabled! The solution turned out to be so easy:

  1. Toggle wireless button on notebook (that's the one that is supposed to light up blue when it's working). Note how in one position, pop up screen says "HP Wireless Assistant WLAN: Off." In other postion, pop up screen says "HP Wireless Assistant WLAN: Disabled."
  2. Toggle wireless button again so pop up screen says " HP Wireless Assistant WLAN: Off."
  3. Double click on HP Wireless Assistant icon on tray. HP Wireless Assistant screen appears. Button on screen says "Turn On." If button is grayed out so you can't click on it, toggle wireless button again.
  4. Click on the "Turn ON: button. Button now says "Turn Off." Pop up screen now says " HP Wireless Assistant WLAN: On" and it is working again!

    I needed to go to device manager and "enable device" there. Turns out the system disabled it due to a conflict.

I need to set up secure access for 3 computers, HOW?


if your connecting all your computers wirelessly then you can setup encryption for your wireless network.
login to your router from a browser. go to 192.168.1.1
click on wireless
click on wireless security
set security mode to wpa2/wpa mix mode.
set the passphase. this will be the password you required to authenticate to your wireless network.
click save settings.
all wireless devices will need to be reconfigured to the new passphase/password in order to use your secured wireless network.

Adding a wired computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you are adding a desktop or any other device to the router which will always be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable, then in this case you don't need to do anything.
You can just connect the Ethernet cable between the router and the computer and it should work.
If you are not able to go online even when it is connected properly then check IP address of the computer.

Adding a wireless computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.

Router connection problem


you will not see your router in any of the places you looked.
Easiest method:
Shutdown your PC and laptops. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC and laptops. The PC and laptops should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider.

HP IQ506 losses wireless connection woken from sleep mode


Well, my solution has worked six consecutive times so MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, this is the final fix. At any rate I went into the Device manager, network adaptor card, 802.11 wireless card and then the advanced tab. Here I found the the Carrier Detect disabled so I enabled it. I also went to the power saving mode on the same property list and set the value to CAM (Constantly Awake). As mentioned, I have put the machine to sleep six times since the change and all six time it reawakens with the network card enabled. You have to wait a about a minute once the system is back up for it to connect to the internet but it does so flawlessly. By the way, before I went to the Adavanced tab I hit the tab called General and it told me "The device is working properly". I'm not sure what this mean when in fact it could not see the network. I just ignored it.

I don't know if my making these setting changes will affect anything else but if you know that they will please notify me. So far, so good.

PS: HP support didn't seem to know anything about this. Neither the PC people or the printer people seemed to know about network issues. I like the machine quite a bit but the support left me cold.

Did you see the wireless signal or your network status in the computer with the wireless adaptor?
If yes, select your wireless network and connect your device.

If no, check the status of your wireless card first
My PC >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network

If the wireless is marked ( ! ) Install the right driver for your wireless card

If ok, try to set up your wireless connection with windows wireless utility instead of HP utility.
(if necesary uninstall HP utility)

If the firewall can't be fixed this issue is related to your antivirus that it is blocking the setting.

Frequent disconnects with wrt300n


Ok for starters this wireless technology is still in it's early stages and is being tested while wireless G is still in play. Most of the time if you continue to get kicked off or get no connection at all, this is due to firewall settings. When a device connects to a router of any kind it must send and recieve a signal. Unless you have a static address on your laptop. (an IP address you placed into your wireless adapter setting) Your IP address sometimes changes, it does this when you turn off your computer, log off, etc. Sometimes when reconnecting to your wireless network the IP address changes because it is a dynamic address. A static address never changes. I have found that with some wireless technology devices if a firewall is setup with windows XP the IP address changes thereby not allowing the device to reconnect to the network or be recognized based on the IP change. I have found this alot with wireless printers, external Network storage devices, etc. Sometimes when you take down the firewall your computer will reconnect to the network. Or just go back to the basics: Right click onto the wireless icon at the bottom right near the clock. You should have an option asking you to repair, this helps most of the time.

Most common problems with having be disconnected from your network is when you have a laptop and you use it outside of home on or in another location. Any more questions I have tons of answers. I can also walk you through a network setup!
