Laptop not picking up Wireless Routers

I purchased my laptop less than a year ago, an hp, and it came wireless and I have had my modem/router set up for all this time, never had a problem connecting.
Last night when I turned my laptop on it said I had a problem connecting to the internet, but also that windows could not detect any networks as it usually detects my linsys router and a whole bunch in the apartment complex.
I need to get this fixed ASAP!!!

Firstly check that it is installed by going into Device Manager.
Goto START - SETTINGS - CONTROL PANEL - SYSTEM - DEVICE MANAGER
Look at the list, If you see your card there with a yellow question mark, or a red exclamation mark then it has an issue.
Firstly unistall the device by right clicking it and select Unistall.
Then reboot and Windows will detect the card again and reinstall the drivers for it.

Check back in Device Manager to see if it is still the same. If so, it is possible it is a hardware failure and would need to be replaced.

Beofre you get to that stage though, turn off the laptop, remove the card (it will be underneath under a panel and will have 2 wires connecting to it) then put it back in making sure to push it into the slot correctly. You do not need to remove the wires to do this, and the card does not need to come all the way out.

Post back if you are still having issues.

I purchased a SBG901 and have connected 2 MAC pc's wireless - 1 HP printer and 1 Compag laptop, I have one more pc which is running Vista on a HP Pavilion dv5 and visited the HP website to update


It might not be anything your doing wrong, the wireless portion of the card may have just gone bad. you could check this out by reconnecting your old router back up to verify it works or doesn't. If it doesn't work your wireless in your laptop went bad presuming that the wireless was not deactivated on the laptop. if it does work the Vista Driver may be incompatible with the new router, you may be able to hook up both routers at the same time which would allow you to keep using your HP system.

Wi-fi scanning failed


Make sure your modem settings are correct. Most routers have a little LED light on the front to indicate whether they're broadcasting a wireless network or not. If the light is not burning, check your modem settings - you'll find more info on this in your router manual.
If the light is burning but your laptop isn't picking up the network, make sure your wireless switch is on - this is often a combination of keys you can press to enable or disable your wireless network service. Once again, the manual of your laptop will tell you where this key combination is to be found.

You can manually go into the network settings and delete the old network configuration, and set up a new one. If all else fails, go to your desktop (which I am assuming connects OK) and check the settings on it, and use those to set up the laptop. Hope this helps

My wireless hp says router cannot find host name


Double check your physical connection. It should be this way

Modem > connected to Internet Port of the router
PC > connected to port 1
Laptop > can be wireless

Now you must power cycle your router and modem. Turn off router first then modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Power on modem first, then the router. You must configure the wireless settings on your laptop it doesn't connect automatically.

Need to get wireless on my laptop,


No, the SB5100 is just a cable modem, not a wireless router. You will need to keep your sb5100 but you will need to purchase a wireless router if you want wireless on your laptop. If you can also plug your laptop into the sb5100 via an ethernet cable for your internet connection. Linksys and Belkin and others make wireless routers that you can use for your wireless connections.
