Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook

1 Answer

My Hp compaq nc6000 with Windows XP used to have a good wireless connection, but now it has a very low signal and I cannot connect to the internet. It does connect to the internet with an ethernet cable. I have tried reinstalling the network driver but it didn't help. Is there any way to fix this?

Make sure that the antenna on your wireless router is not damaged or pointed the wrong way (down or the the side). Also if you look under the cover under your laptop make sure that the wireless antenna is properly plugged in to your laptop's radio. I have seen a few loose ones here and there.

Compaq nc6000 wifi connection very unstable


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

I think you've not installed the modem driver. Go to device manager, check for modems and find if modem is displaying and its driver is installed.

If not install the modem driver, then it'll start recognizing the modem.

Hope it worked for you. Thanks for using Fixya. All the best.

Laptop Virgin?


Hi,

you can download the manuals for the NB from the following link

www.hp.com/support

enter the product number of your NB, then in the search bar type manuals. It will take you to the manuals page.

You will have everything you want..pictures.. initial setup screens, specifications etc..

For wireless internet there is a switch in the NB that need to be turned on. It looks like a tower and sound waves coming out. After you do that you need to have a router and a dsl / cable broadband internet connection to be able to connect to the wireless internet

Regards,
Anup

Compaq nc6000 laptop wireless connection


Wireless connection? If so, make sure the wireless device is enabled on the newer one. If it's a red light, the wireless device may be faulty. If so, just get an external USB wireless device and use that. Check to see that the same lights are on with both PCs.

My neighbor's signal


If your neighbors know that your using their router, you might ask them to reset it. If they moved it, this could cause the weakening of the signal, walls drastically decrease a wireless signal. You might also refresh your wireless card by uninstalling the wireless drivers and reinstalling them.
