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!

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

> excellent connectivity

This refers to the wireless connection between your computer & your router, not to the connection from your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) out through your ISP to the Internet.

If you use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the cable/DSL modem, do you still have "intermittent" problems?
If so, then your router (or other wireless devices, such as your neighbours' router, or your neighbours' wireless telephones that are trying to operate on the same broadcast frequency) is the problem.

Hi, I have an Hp computer with an AMD processor 802.11, and my problem is that i cannot connect to the internet using my wireless router. I have done everything from disabling to enabling my wireless...


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.

Trouble with Linksys Wireless Router


Try unplugging both the modem and the router. count to 15 then plug back in and try.
Keep in mind also that some routers dont connect 100% till you open a browser, weird but I have had similar problems.
It sounds like you may have problems at both ends.
Several things come to my mind;
make sure you shut down ALL programs in the background.

you are trying to problem solve by elimination, so close anything that may connect to the internet and take away that variable.

scan for spyware etc.

do a registry clean, temp files cleanup etc.

sometimes restarting the pc can help
good luck

Second computer can't connect to the internet


Hi,
I had a similar problem when I got my laptop. What I did was type 192.168.2.1 (yours might be different because we have a wifi router plugged into a normal router, so try 192.168.0.1 otherwise) into the internet URL address box. This takes me to the Wireless Router's domain page. I then click on 'Wireless' and then it asks me for a password, which I leave blank because I never set one up, and now I am in the Wireless settings menu. I then click 'Use as Access Point' and then 'Enable'. Then I close the browser.
I then check my Wireless connections on the laptop and can see the router there in the list. I double click this and also make sure the 'Automatically connect to this network' is enabled. I wait a few seconds for it to detect and connect.. "Local and Internet Access"!
I open the internet browser and I am on my Google homepage.

Your settings will be slightly different, but essentially the same.
Try that.
Good Luck!

Rangemax-internet only works when comp directly connected via LAN


it sounds like you have the wireless connection to the WAN disabled. Go through the wireless settings on the router and check to make sure it's not being blocked from the WAN/Internet connection.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.

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.
