What Brand Router do you have? If you want to reset to factory defaults, behind the router will be a small button a reset button, Push and hold that button for at least 5-10 seconds then let got this will reset the router back to factory defaults... and under the router must be a sticker where the Routers IP address should be indicated to access the GUI/Settings page.

Make sure that by trying to access the routers GUI or setting page that your are connected using Ethernet to be able to access the Routers GUI.

Once in the GUI settings Page check if the wireless radio is turned on to be able to access the router wireless to get connected to the internet.

I hope this helps.

Some old receivers including laptops will not connect to some new routers and access points, you can do one thing to solve this problem, access your router with typing this address in explorer 192.168.1.1 (may be different, check your network connection status details to know default gateway)
then decrease your wireless channel from 11 (9 or 6)
then try to connect again, if still not ready replace your router and check again

The issue here may not be the laptop but the router strength of it's wireless radio. Do you have another laptop or a freind who can come over and test his connection? The DV series laptops have pretty decent antennae and wireless cards. Try to update the drivers for the WLAN card, make sure the antennae leads have a good secure fit at the ends where they attach to the card. If the router is a couple to several years old, it may need the firmware updated.

Outlook and IE can't find WiFi connection. I can connect to a wireless network, but I can't get IE or MS Outlook download from it.


Hi,

First of all turn the wireless radio off on the laptop, then go to the modem and the wireless router and turn them off for 2 minutes.
Turn them back on and wait a further 2 minutes for them/it to reset.

Now go to your laptop and turn the wireless radio back on again, re-connect to the wireless signal and see if you can access the net. If you can then you should have no further problems retrieving your emails or accessing the internet.


Please feel free to post back if you need to.


Good luck.

Setting Up a Wireless Network


You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

Hope this helps!

You need to check the signal strength in the other room and compare it with where you were getting a good signal.
Check the other Access Points/routers in your area, are they broadcasting on the same channel, if they are then change your access point/router to a different channel.
To improve radio reception you may need to move the access point/router to another location away from solid walls etc.
Your wireless card may be as good as your roomates, if possible borrow one of theirs and set it up (configure it) for your laptop and see it it works better.
Try the other options before you buy another wireless card.
