Question about HP Pavilion dv9720us Notebook
Recently purchased a pc laptop. got dsl hooked up but do not know how to make the laptop wireless. if i unhook the cable i lose the connection. the tech support said i would have to set it up for wireless. the manual is not helpful at all.
HEY WHATS UP,
PROBABLY TO LATE I JUST SIGNED UP EARLIER.
HAVE YOU TRIED TURNING THE SWITCH ON?
LOOK FOR AN ANTENNA SYMBOL SIMILAR TO WHAT YOU WOULD SEE ON A CELL PHONE. THEN YOU WILL SEE A WLAN MESSAGE POP-UP FROM THE BOTTOM.
RIGHT CLICK ON IT SELECT VIEW AVAILABLE NETWORKS,
HOPEFULLY A FEW APPEARED, NOW LOOK TO SEE WHATS UNSECURE WITH A COOL SIGNAL STRENGTH.
CLICK CONNECT, NOW CLICK THE BIG BLUE e, this would be the easiest way if your settings are enabled. especially if your in a hot spot.
If you have done this, then no disrespect intended okay.
THE FIRST TWO SOLUTIONS ARE REALLY VALID.
ITS JUST ALOT OF PEOPLE DONT KNOW ABOUT THIS BUTTON OR SWITCH.
GOOD LUCK AND OH YEA I DO HAVE 4 DIFFERENT CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS.

That laptop has a wireless card in it already. Also HP requires signed wifi cards in order to work so going to the PC store is a **** shoot with most major brands. (IBM/HP/Compaq/Sony) (Acer/Dell/Asus don't seem to restrict them)
First Make sure you have an access point. Your DSL/Cable provider can sell you a cable modem or dsl modem with this option. You can also get your own but if you don't know what you are doing you could be opening your computer to the rest of the neighborhood.
After that is set up....
Your laptop should have two network icons near the clock at the bottom of the screen. (it may be hidden click the arrow)
One is the wired network card and one is the wifi card. Click the one without a connection (it will have a little x on it)
Click it and it should show you the accesspoints near your computer. Select the one that was setup in the previous step.
Hope that sorta helps. This subject isn't easy to explain.

No prob mate,all pc can be wireless:just go to your local pc store and ask for wireless network card.you can get ones for usb or pcm .setup disk and accessories inclu.follow instructions and probably online 10min later.
I use a trendnet network card when people ask to sort out net related problems and I recieve networks before the software has finnished instalation.
