Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Computer connected to internet through wireless but browsers don't work

My computer is connected through a wireless connection with an "Excellent" signal at 54 mbps. When I try to use IE or Firefox they both say that they are unable to load the page. I've tried repairing the connection, restarting, leaving it off for awhile, renewing my IP address, and when I run the diagnostics through IE is says there may be a problem with my "Winsock" but when I let IE restart the computer to fix the issue it still doesn't work. I don't know what else to do!

Computer says,"connected to network signal strength excellent", but I cannot connect to internet


Can you connect to the Internet using the LAN cable?
Have you configured the wireless card in your laptop with the router's wireless settings?

Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I have an acer aspire one laptop that will not connect to internet thru wireless connection. System shows that wireless connection strength is excellent but internet explorer cannot display webpage. ...


1.- Try to find the wireless card switch (or button). Look the wireless led indicator, must be on.
You should surf if the led is on.

2.- If not works, go to device manager and look to your wireless device and turn the switch on and
off again. Look if the device is accepted without any sign. If the device get any sign then you
have problem with your wireless driver. If no sign. Open My Computer and then open networks
or my network places, and try to access to any other computer you have.

3.- If the device is ok in device manager and the led indicator is on and you can access other
computer thru network places, then open Internet explorer, go to tools, then go to internet
options, then go to connections and there click on Lan settings. In the proxy section uncheck
the box. Restart your Internet Explorer and it must surf now.

Good Luck and remember to rate my answer.

I presume your Number pad is Locked. To unlock it you should hold down theFn key then hit NumLk/F11 key.
If it is locked every time you start/restart then the num pad is activated in the bios. You should deactivate it in the bios. Press F2 during the startup POST (power on self test) to enter bios. There you should look for the alternative to deactivate the num pad(it is system dependent).

ok, if the computer see's the router and connects then the problem is most likely in your browser settings. Check under options in either browser and see what your default connection is. Change that to your wireless and make sure you LAN settings are set to auto detect. You also want to check you router settings. If it has settings for what channel it broadcast your wirelss on make sure it is NOT using channel 6. I had this problem with my HP's, all 4 of them. Once I chenged it from forced 105mbs and to use channel 10 all the computers worked. I don't know why it is a problem but HP's don't like channel 6 on wireless routers.

I have an excellent connection to city wifi but no web page.


Windows WiFi Fix,
Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.
Windows XP:
Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

On a Dell Latitude - no internet connection


The fact that the lights are on and that you get wireless signal means that the computer is making a connection with the router, but the router is not making a connection to the internet.
Try a sequenced power-cycle. Turn off the computer (completely off, not hibernating or sleeping), then turn off your modem (if you have one) and finally turn off your router.
Wait 5 minutes and turn it on in the backwards order. First the router, then the modem and finally the computer. If it's still not working, contact your ISP's tech support, there's probably an outage in the area or another problem with your internet service,

Latitude d600


the excellent connection refers to the wireless signal and not the internet connection, so go to tools on your web browser, internet options, then delete all temp files, history and cookies, close your browser down and open it up again and see if it connects, if not keep clicking refresh.

Try different sites incase there is a fault on the site you are trying to browse.
