Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

My new HP laptop was working w/my wireless modem just fine, and has suddenly stopped picking up the signal.Message I'm getting is that "wireless capability is turned off." Can you please assist? I see no function button or any other way to engage, nor did I do anything to turn it off (assuming it was on!) - Thanks - Judi E.

The firewall is blocking the connection. Turn off all computers. Turn off router and modem. In this order, turn them all back on. First modem, wait one minute. Next router, wait one minute. Last, all computers. You should have connection now.

LInksys wrt160n v2 wireless router not connecting to internet


Most cable companies will only allow 1 active device at a time conneceted to the cable modem. When ever you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always cycle the power/reset your cable modem.

When you are reseting the units, always rset the cable modem first, wait until it boots back up then reset the router. If that doesn't fix the poblem then it may be a configuration problem.

I forgot to ask if you are cable or DSL.

Hope this helps

Try to manually "Add device to network" by using the wireless setup wizard. Check to see if the Wireless Zero Configuration service is "Running" before trying to add device. Yuo may also want to disable IPv6 in vista tcp/ip properties page.

Wireless stopped working


you may have accidently shut off the wireless on/off switch or button.i also have a acer laptop,& it has a sliding switch in front.other laptops have a push in button.your owners manual should show you where yours is. also check the bottom right hand corner of your laptop for the 2 little computers symbol. right click on it, click on view available networks,look for your router # on the listings. you may have to type in a wep key # to lock in your router.the other signals you are seeing are other routers in the area
good luck
