HP bought several motherboards from the same company in China. These boards work for about 15 months then they can't find the wireless card. This is caused by a defect in the North Bridge chip overheating over time. This chip is not replaceable at the local level. You can send it back to HP for a replacement and sometimes they will charge you $300 - $500, or you can just replace the motherboard yourself. Check with them first since there is an ungoing lawsuit regarding these boards. Either way the only fix is to replace the motherboard. This is also a problem for the dv6000 and the dv9000 models. HP knows that 30% of these will fail.

You may have to set up the network on the Notebook manually...You can go to the network setup wizard and choose to get the settings for the network and put them on a usb drive. Goto control panel and select View network status and tasks from the main computer running on your network(or the one you used to setup your wireless). You should see a page with all the network devices that are running on the system. Under "view your active networks" you should see the router's name. Click on the router and the wireless connection status page should come up. Here you will want to find the wireless "properties " tab and click it. There in the connections tab there should be a link at the bottom saying" copy this network profile to a usb drive"...select this option and the computer will prompt you to insert a usb drive and copy net settings...then you take the usb out and put it into the Acer A1 and under network setup copy files from usb drive onto Acer A1..the network setup wizard will guide you through the steps..any q'S email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Wireless Network Setup Wizard and the View Available Wireless Networks feature both rely on the Wireless Zero Configuration service to provide their functionality to Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Microsoft Windows XP Table PC Edition 2005. If the Wireless Zero Configuration service is not available, you receive an error message that directs you to this article.
This behavior occurs for several reasons. Some computer and hardware manufacturers provide their own configuration software that replaces the Wireless Zero Configuration service that is provided in Windows. In that case, you must use the software that is provided by the manufacturer to configure your wireless network. If you want to use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard or the View Available Wireless Networks feature to configure your wireless device, see the documentation that came with your computer or with your wireless network card. Use this documentation to determine whether you can use the Wireless Zero Configuration service to configure your wireless network. Sometimes, you cannot use the Windows functionality.
If your computer or your wireless network adapter did not come with its own wireless network software, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
Click Network Connections.
In Network Connections, click to select your wireless connection, and then clickChange settings of this connection.
On the Wireless Networks tab, click to select the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.
To start the Wireless Zero Configuration service, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.
If you receive an error message when you try to start the service, see the "References" section for more troubleshooting information.For more information, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

In a lot of cases they are setup to find wireless signals automatically. If you are in a place with a wifi, you should see an icon in the bottom right of the screen. If you click on that it should show you what networks are available and if they are unsecured, which most motels are, you can click on "connect" and that should do it. If you go on as "public" it protects you a little better. Make sure you always update your virus software when roaming.
I am going to assume that you never had wireless connection with your 3680. With that in mind, Go into Control Panel to make sure your wireless connection can "see" other network routers. Control Panel>Network and Internet Connections>Network Connection. When you start the search for networks, this should turn your wireless adaptor on to perform the search. If you get a message that you do not have a wireless adaptor, use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
In your operating system go to control panel and follow the prompts of the network setup wizard ( select wireless setup) and follow the steps of the wizard. But you better have a wireless network type card in your laptop.. Usually there is a little switch on the unit soemwhere that displays an orange or blue light that is the network card.
Did you run the setup wireless network wizard on both computers? If not try this first & see if it fixes the problem. You will find this wizard in the control panel of your windows o/s. Hope this helps.
your wireless devices are not configure to the right value. Start the wireless network wizard in your desktop computer.(Start- Control Panel - Network and Internet Connections - Setup a wireless network for a home or small office) Follow the on-screen instructions. After finishing, run the wizard in the router and then run it in the devices that you want to connect to the network.
try to use use the network wizard from the control panel. your work group name should be the same with the other computers. if you run the network wizard to one computer you need to run this wizard to the other computers in order for you t have this network then restart the computers
