My Minii was given to me a a gift recently, no matter what I do I am una.ble too make an Internet connection It;s a Wireless connection I want, but all I get is a big red X and a comment, make sure your...


Please refer to the User Manual for the HP Mini Netbook, located here:

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01657997.pdf

Specifically, take a look at page 25, "Connecting to a wireless network". At the bottom of this page, if you are seeing the icon listed as Wireless (disconnected), this means the wireless switch on your Mini is turned off. To turn it back on, find the small slider button on the front of your Mini with the wireless antenna icon next to it, and slide it. This should activate your wireless card, and if you have a wireless network in range it should identify it shortly after.

If your wireless card is already on, and it cannot find your wireless network signal, you can try either (1) restarting your router, or (2) visit the HP Support page for the Mini 1115NR, select your version of Windows installed on the Mini, then download and install the latest wireless networking drivers.

The wirelss enable/disable switch will not work, and is curently disabled, can i enable it another way (acer 5570-2067)


1)Go to Start Menu
2)Choose Control Panel
3)Choose Network Adapters or Network and sharing center
4)Right click the wireless adapter (it should say disabled in grey letters beneath the adapter) Vista users will have to choose Manage network connections from the left hand menu before they will be able to see the network adapters.
5)Choose enable
That should do it.

Good Luck

Internet disconnection on hp dv 6500


When the internet connection goes down what does your network and sharing center say the status is? does it says access: local and internet? or does it say access: local only?
do any other pcs have this problem on your network?
if this is the only pc having this issue the best thing to do is contact Vista support while you are still under warranty so they can troubleshoot the issue further... more than likely simply need to update the drivers for the network connections... this is a known issue they have had in the past... its not your ISP if all other pcs are fine... its just one of the lovely side affects of Vista..
GOOD LUCK!!!

I have an acer 3680 and for some reason the wireless switch gets


Two notes on this. One model of 3680 has rectanglur lights on the front. These are switches also and I accidently turned off a customer's network before I realized what they were. The second note is download Vista SP1. Vista has had alot of problems maintaining network connections. Miscrsoft said they fixed it in SP1.

Staying connected to internet, using sprint 595 air card


If I were you, I would let your windows manage your wireless network on the computer with vista. Also you might, If you haven't already tried using your install new programs in the control panel, As long as you have the sprint software downloaded in your laptop windows should still recognize the wireless connection, Try letting windows manage it from the Network properties and there should be an option there that lets windows manage you network. try it see if that helps you out. If not write back here and let me know we can try another route. Sorry you having problems.

Installing Vista A135 laptop in XP wireless network


I would reinstall using the Vista specific drivers from their website:

I have had a lot of problems with HP printers and Vista on our network, but this seems to fix it more times than not.

Problems with wireless and MS Vista


Try these first:

change channels to 1-6-or 11. Make sure you change all of your wireless computers4.gif.


check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones1.gif and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.
