Question about HP Compaq nx9010

1 Answer

My nx9010 will not connect to my wireless router but my gateway will. I have had problems with the router in the past. The signal bars show a strong signal and the wireless light on the front of the laptop is on. Is this a internal problem with my nx9010 or a router problem. I am currantly on line asking this question from my gateway laptop.

Most likely your internal wireless card has gone bad. Not to worry, though, they're rather inexpensive on ebay and Tigerdirect.com. A qualified technician may charge quite a bit to install it, though so for the time being there's the option of using a USB type adapter. Here's some examples: http://www.amazon.com/Medialink-Wireless-Adapter-Windows-Compatible/dp/B002RM08RE/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_0

Might be a problem with the router, or router location. Check the signal strength from the printer.
If your signal only has 1 or 2 bars, it could lose its connection very easily.

You should be able to move your modem and router, anywhere in the house, and it will not erase settings. Just have to have a strong cable signal going to the modem.

If the signal strength is not the problem, your router could be getting hot and cutting out. Or getting old and going bad. Try also resetting the router and reconfiguring it.

My x box 360 keeps freezing ans saying you are disconnected from xbox live, what do i do ?


If your screen freezes when playing on Xbox LIVE, the problem may be related to your Internet connection. A weak wireless signal can cause poor Xbox LIVE performance. If you are using wireless connection:
1. Go to My Xbox and select System Setttings. 2. Select Network Settings. 3. Select Wired Connection or the name of your wireless network. 4. Select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
If your wireless signal is only one or two bars, try improving your signal strength by following the suggestions below.
  • Move your router or gateway off the floor and away from walls and metal objects such as metal file cabinets).
  • Minimize obstructions along a straight-line path between your Xbox and your wireless router or gateway.
  • Shorten the distance between your console and your wireless router or gateway. Ideally, your network hardware should be near the center of your home.
  • Change the position of the antenna on your Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter (external adapter only).
  • Turn off wireless devices. If your router uses the 2.4 GHz band, try turning off wireless devices, such as 2.4 GHz cordless telephones and Bluetooth devices.
  • Try changing your wireless channel. Wireless routers and gateways can broadcast on different channels and one channel might be clearer than another. See your hardware documentation for help changing wireless channels.
  • Add a wireless repeater to extend your wireless network range. You can boost your signal strength by placing a wireless repeater halfway between your router or gateway and your console.
  • Add an Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter.
  • Switch wireless signal bands. If you have a dual-band router and an external wireless adapter, try switching the router to a wireless protocol that transmits on the 5 GHz band (wireless protocol A or N). Please see your hardware documentation for help with changing the wireless protocol.
  • Switch to a cable.

Hi, the gateway is your cable modem, so if that 3rd laptop can't find the gateway, it can't make its way out onto the Internet. Do you know if you're using DHCP (to automatically assign IP addresses to your computers)? If you're not sure, you probably are, and all you'd need to do to fix the problem is to open a command prompt on that laptop with the problem (in Windows XP, go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt; in Windows Vista or 7 you can just type "command prompt" into the search bar) and at the command line, type "ipconfig /release" and then, once the command completes (which might take a minute) type "ipconfig /renew". This will force your laptop to re-acquire its IP address, complete with subnet mask and default gateway address.
An alternate way to do it is to right click on your wireless icon in the system notification area of the taskbar and select Repair. It will accomplish the same thing as above, but Windows will do the legwork for you.
Hopefully that should fix your problem. If not, leave a comment and we'll go from there. Good luck!

No wireless light, and no wireless signal detected


there is a possibilty that wirelss feature on ur router is not turned on as the wireless light is off.
U can open the gui(router page) of ur router by entering the default gateway on the browser address bar. First of all u would need to connect ur comp using the cable to ur router so that it could be connected to internet.
Go to command prompt and type ipconfig and press enter and it will give u the ip and default gateway of ur router.
U can type the same default gateway in the address bar of internet exploere and hit enter and it shud bring the router page.
Once u r on the router page u can check the wireless settings on to that and can alter them.

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

I use a dl 514 router. the computer shows a wireless connection and a strong signal but i'm not able to get online. now that I'm using a cable, it still shows a wireless connection with a strong signal.


Its quite likely that the router is not connected to your computer wirelessly. Which means, your wireless card is not picking up a IP address. I would suggest two thigns 1. In your wireless utlity , try to repair the connection. 2. Check if you have a static IP address. If you do, remove it.
Hope this helps
Thanks Ranjit
