Dear gentlemen,

Please check BIOS setup if there are choices there to enable or disable built-in webcam devices. Also you need to reinstall the device driver if necessary using the compliment CD driver or installer. Hope this gives you hint.

Best regards,

SOURCE: intermittent internal wireless modem.

There are many reasons that the signal can vary from place to place and can change drastically just inches away.
a few sources for interference are:

  • cordless phones
  • baby monitors
  • basically anything wireless
You see some of the above work at 2.4 ghz frequency and can block and distort data coming from your router to your pc.Luckily there are quick fixes that sometimes work for instance:
  • setting your router to another channel:
You can do this by going into your routers wireless settings and changing the transmit channel from say 1 to 2 and so on and try that for a bit.
How do I get to the router settings you ask? Good question, well its pretty simple but it varies greatly from router to router so you will have to look in your manual that you threw away when you bought it :) or just check on the internet and search for "(make and model) settings" at the product website.

if you'd rather provide the make and model here id be happy to search for you and find out how you can configure your router.
That said my main suggestion is to get an Ethernet wire to that stationary pc, it will surf a whole lot faster unless the wires are a pain. Most home wireless speeds pale in comparison to hooking directly up to that same network.

How to turn on bluetooth radio

Which operating system ???...
There are a variety of ways to connect to the Internet or a home/business network using your Hewlett-Packard (HP) desktop computer---via a modem, Ethernet cable and even wirelessly.
A wireless connection works by sending a signal from your modem or router to your HP desktop's built-in wireless radio.
The radio receives and processes the signal so you can access the Internet or a home or business network.
In order for the signal to be received by your HP desktop, you must enable the wireless radio within the computer's configuration.

Click "Start," "Control Panel."
Double-click on the "HP Wireless Assistant" icon.
The HP Wireless Assistant dialog box will open.
Click the "Turn On" button next to the words "Wireless LAN."
Click "Close" to activate the wireless radio. - DeviceEnabled

My laptop works using my Belkin router, but my desktop will not connect to the internet


your notebook has WiFi, which is radio frequency internet, it transmits and receives radio signals (frequencies) . Your desktop, most likely, does not support WiFi on its own , so you need to use RG45 cable , ethernet cable to be connected from your desktop to the router.

So in other words thsi is what happens with your notebook and the router.
  1. your notebook has built in wireless adapter which translates data into a radio signal and transmits it using an antenna.
  2. A wireless router receives the signal and decodes it. The router sends the information to the Internet using a physical, wired Ethernet connection, to your modem (supplied by your Internet Service Provider)
The process also works in reverse, with the router receiving information from the Internet, translating it into a radio signal and sending it to the computer's wireless adapter.

The radios used for WiFi communication are very similar to the radios used for walkie-talkies, cell phones and other devices.

you need to connect your desktop to the router via RG45 ethernet cable.

Can the HP Pavilion 763n PC Desktop use a wireless router?

Your computer has a "built-in" 10/100BT network connection integrated on the motherboard but to go wireless you'll have to add either a PCI (internal) or USB (external) wireless network adapter to transmit/receive the signal from your wireless router. Think "walkie-talkie" here with the wireless router installed AFTER the modem (phone line outlet needed) located in a central area of your home and transmitting/receiving to the individual wireless network adapters that must be separately installed in each computer.

How do I find the wireless connection switch for hpzv6270 cannot connect to internet someone has turned off the switch can't get it back on

If your wireless network adapter is built-in to your notebook PC, verify that the adapter is turned on. Some notebook PCs have an on/off button on the front or side that corresponds to a blue or red light. Press the button to turn the wireless adapter on. If you have it on you will see what looks to be a signal tower icon that is usually blue sometimes red.
Now if you still can't get connected to the internet, call you ISP (internet SERVICE provider). If you have say, verizon, comcast, or the like, they are very good a getting you back on line. In fact most of the time they take over you computer and do the configurations for you. I have had great luck with them and I feel that you are paying for that service, you might as well get it.
You will do well, good luck -please leave rating, thank you kindly.

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network

Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.
