Very common, just power cycle the router, they lock up from time to time. give it about a minute to cool down before you plug it back in, then all should return normal. I look forward to your response. Thanks

    Fair enough, at this point i recommend you connect with a wire, and surf into the routers admin panel, check through the wireless setup, change the encryption key to use some thing new like WPA or WPA2 with a new password. If it was never locked down, someone may have gotten in there and changed your wireless connect key on you. then try again.
    Best of Luck !

Wireless card not working ze4933


f you suddenly have a problem with your network connection, before you make any changes, you must determine whether you have a problem with (1) the wireless device on the computer, (2) the connection between the computer and the network , or (3) the connection from the ISP provider to the network. Each of these devices / connections must be operating independently before they can all work together.
  1. View the wireless icons in the system tray to determine the status of the devices and connections. Then, open the appropriate utilities for detailed information on potential problems. The detailed windows are: the Windows Wireless Network Connection, the HP Wireless Assistant, and the Device Manager.
  2. When you have the detailed information, identify the specific type of connection problem by reading the connection description statements below. Then select the statement that most closely describes your problem for a detailed explanation of the corrective actions.Internal wireless networking adapters or PCMCIA cards may have problems connecting to a wireless network if the Advanced options are not set properly. For instance, some PCMCIA devices can adjust the power output to increase the strength of the wireless signal.note.pngNOTE:If the computer and router are in the same physical area, you may want to reduce the signal strength to save battery. However, if they are not located near to each other, you can turn the power up to 100% to maximize the signal.Most HP internal wireless cards can be set to turn off to save battery power. If the wireless connection was working but suddenly stopped when using the battery, the card may be turning itself off exactly as planned. You can use the Device Manager to specify the power settings and keep the wireless card turned on.To verify and change the wireless device settings in the Device Manager, do the following actions.
    1. Click Start , Control Panel , System , Hardware , and then Device Manager .
    2. Click the plus sign (+) next to Network Adapters . If multiple devices are listed, you should check the devices one at a time.
    3. Right-click on the network adapter, and select Properties .Select the Power Management tab, if available, and verify the power settings. Not all wireless device drivers have a Power Management option.
    When you have set the Power Management options, close the Device Manager, restart the computer, and attempt to reconnect to the wireless network.

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network


Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

Wireless connection keeps falling


It may be just a problem of the signal bouncing around and your laptop is struggling at times to find the signal. Some earlier laptops don't have a wireless booster built in the screen. Go to your laptops' web site and see if there are any updated drivers for your wireless card. If still unhappy with results purchase a USB wireless dongle and dissable wireless card, it may have a better reception area, or purchase a signal booster that works in conjunction with your wireless router.
