Why i cannot install a wi fi driver for my hp g7-2118nr with a windows 7 ultimate operating system


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. Usually a wifi enabled phone, computer, or whatever device, will recognize if there is wifi access near you. Most new HP (Hewlett-Packard) Pavilion notebook computers as of August 2010 include an internal wireless networking adapter, used to connect to a wireless network or router. Once connected to a router, the computer can connect to the Internet or other computers on the same network. If the wireless networking adapter is not allowing the computer to connect to a router, there are several steps that can be used to remedy the problem. Ensure that the wireless network adapter is turned on. Most HP Pavilion notebook computers have a switch that allows you to turn off the wireless adapter. The switch typically is located on the side of the computer or on the front. Ensure that the router and modem are plugged in and functioning. Ensure that the lights are illuminated on each device. Attempt to connect wirelessly using another computer, if possible, to test whether the connection problem is with the router or modem. Unplug the router and modem. Leave the power off for approximately 30 to 60 seconds, then turn them on again. Update the wireless network adapter driver using the computer's "Device Manager." To access the Device Manager, right-click on "Computer" or "My Computer," depending on the version of Windows, and click "Device Manager" from the left-side bar, or from the tab labeled "Hardware." Once in the Device Manager, expand the section labeled "Networking Devices" and right-click on the wireless network adapter. Click "Update driver software" to begin searching for an update. If an update is found, follow the onscreen instructions to install the update. Reinstall the wireless networking adapter if updating the driver does not remedy the problem. To reinstall the wireless adapter driver, right-click on it from the Device Manager and select "Uninstall." Once the device is removed from the computer, restart the computer. Once Windows loads, it will automatically detect and reinstall the driver. Run the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool (if the computer uses the Windows 7 operating system) to diagnose any networking issues the operating system may be able to correct. To access the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool, open the "Start" menu and type "Network" into the search field. Click "Network and Sharing Center" and then select "Diagnose and repair" from the left-side bar. The Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool will automatically run and will attempt to repair and establish the wireless connection. Attempt to manually connect to the wireless network. Open the "Network and Sharing Center" and click "Setup a new connection or network." Enter the network name, security type and network key into the text boxes and click "Next." If successful, click "Use the existing network" and then click "Connect." The network name, security type and network key can be obtained from the network administrator or by logging into the router. For help logging into the router, consult the instructions included with the router. Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys navigate to integrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its "Enabled"imake sure key scroll Hope this helps.

Wireless Connectivity problem


You can check the wireless adapter is working properly in device manager: control panel>hardware and sound, under devices and printers, choose 'device manager'. Expand the network adapters menu and find the wifi adapter. Right click on this and click properties. You can see if the device is working properly under the general tab. You can also try updating the driver; from the drivers tab, choose update driver and then choose to search automatically for updated software.
Also, try clearing browsing history and cookies: Go to start>control panel>network and internet, under the internet options heading, choose 'delete browsing history and cookies' restart the browser.

I can not figure out how to get the computer to make a wireless connection.


Add the Home SSID to the Preferred Network List After you set the SSID on your home gateway, you may need to add it to your preferred network list if Windows XP Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled. (Although automatic configuration is nice to have, your IT department may have disabled it on your laptop in order to meet their needs. If they have, you'll need to use the tool provided by your laptop or wireless manufacturer to manually configure wireless settings.) To manually add your home wireless network to the list of preferred networks when Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled, follow these steps:
• In Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.
• Right-click the Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
• On the Wireless Networks tab, shown in Figure 3, click Add.

Figure 3
• In the Wireless network properties dialog box, shown in Figure 4, enter the SSID you configured for your wireless gateway (ExampleHome_g in this example.)
netw4.jpg
Figure 4
Note: Figure 4 assumes you've added the Windows WPA Client Update. If you haven't downloaded and installed it, you probably should. For more on the WPA Client Update, see Overview of the WPA Wireless Security Update in Window XP.
• Fill in the rest of the fields, including the necessary authentication and encryption information based on the configuration of your wireless gateway.
• Click OK and your home network will be added to the list of preferred networks.
Now, whenever you're at home, your work laptop should automatically see your home wireless network and connect to it.

Windows cannot configure this wireless network


What OS are you running? XP? Most wireless networks are now using the WPA protocol and computers with XP that are not updated at least to SP2 will not connect to these networks even though you can see them available. I would go ahead and updated to the latest SP3 (Service Pack 3). I cant really be more helpful without knowing the OS (operating system).

Same problem hp wireless assitant not working


Troubleshoot your wireless network with HP mobile and wireless solutions

update (flash) the Bios
install all the Nvidia updates (chipset and Video)
Audio
Modem (only if you use this to access the internet or possibly will in the future - ie on vacation)
Hp software updates (Quick Launch and Q/L Critical update)
Essential Vista updates (these are the ONLY Microsoft related updates I installed)
Finally the Wireless Driver update (in my case the Broadcom W/L Card)
and the little blue light came back !!! Even better was that it turns off when it's supposed to and back on when it is supposed to.
Wireless Works - I tested by connecting to multiple different networks for stability (just go to a couple of different MacDonald's, Starbuck's and Safeway stores to try this if you cannot find available networks in your neighbourhood) You don't have to connect to them, just get to the point where it checks for the passcode/network key and you've successfully communicated with the router and this will count as connecting to a wireless device.
i have TURNED OFF ALL WINDOWS UPDATES, this is important because it is an update to the operating system (Windows Vista) that is causing the problems in the first place. (Not a conspiracy between HP/Compaq and Microsoft to cause you to pay for expensive parts that don't fix the problem or go out and pay for a full copy of Windows Vista and have it installed professionally)
I used to work for the retailer that sold me this laptop for my step daughter (and HP authourized repair centre) and now i work for a Network and Systems Support HelpDesk so i can safely say that you don't need to fall for the warning from Microsoft about needing to keep your operating system constantly updated because if you connect to a Wireless network in the fireplace you are behind a firewall and thus protected by the nasty little things floating around out there. If you are worried about the security concerns about your browser (internet explorer) the download Firefox - it is built on a much safer code and is regularily updated as well and won't leave you open to installing the nasty microsoft code that breaks your laptop

Try deleting the wireless network connection through control panel, network connections, right click your wireless adapter then select properties. Click on wireless networks on the tabs at the top. Remove your wireless from the list then reboot machine. When Windows has restarted search for wireless networks and find your wireless network. Click on connect and then input your wireless key. Windows may have thrown a wobbly and lost your wireless key. Common problem.
