Please Understand wireless network settings and setup:

Wireless networks depend on special-purpose radio receivers and transmitters that substitute the exchange of messages over the air for the exchange of messages that occurs over wired connections on conventional networks. When you power on your PC, Windows Vista automatically searches for available wireless networks.
The network icon in the system tray, shown in Figure 1, enables you to view a list of local networks that Windows Vista detects. Notice that the network icon in this figure is marked with a red X, which indicates no network connection is currently established.

Figure 1: A red X indicates no network connection is active.
When you click this icon, a window opens indicating you're not connected to a wireless network, as shown in Figure 2.
Figure 2: The detail window for the network icon provides a link to create a network connection. The window also includes two hyperlinks: Connect to a network and Network and Sharing Center. Click the Connect to a network link to open the Connect to a network window, shown in Figure 3.

I want to activate wifi on my laptop Model: HP COMPAQ HSTNN-A25C. Please advise the process.


Hello,
The wifi switch will be in one of the following places. It may have a wifi symbol which will look like radio waves. I hope this helps.

  1. Check the front edge of the laptop for a switch that goes from left to right. The light will normally go from Orange to Blue
  2. check the side edges for the wifi switch
  3. Look at the top of the Keyboard above the number keys to the right. you may find a button there.
  4. Or you can manually turn on your wifi.Click the "Start" button, and click "Control Panel." Click "Network and Internet." Click "Change adapter settings." Right-click on "Wireless Network Connection," and select "Enable" from the menu.
  5. Once you see the wifi symbol at the bottom right of the Laptop screen (near the date/time) click on it and choose your wireless network.

My laptop is HP. With windows 8 I need to turn off broadband ?? To connect WiFi lan setting only..No dial up


If your HP has a Wireless adapter - should have - you should connect to WiFi as soon as you start up your computer. Some start up WiFi throgu a compination of function keys, you should check your keyboard and your user's manual.
I don'r Understand what do you mean by "connect WiFi Lan settingg". WiFi is not the same as LAN. LAN is the cdirect conection to a broadband modem and if your LAN port is coonected through a cable to your modem, you connect to Interent at startup,
No dial up? I'm not sure if anywhere in civilized wold anyone with a computer still uses a dial up Internet modem.

Hp pavillion laptop allows me to log on. Then as it loads up screen flashes and a blue circular disc appears by the curso. It says limited wifi. No problem with the WiFI connecting my phone to it.


Does your phone use the Wifi antenna from your laptop? or the receiver? or the software? When your laptop indicates it has a problem with the Wifi connection, it has. What is causing this should be looked after in the laptop, like did you setup the connection correct? Is the setting still correct? or did something change the settings or even reset the settings?
Just check everything about the wireless connection in the laptop to see if you can get it working again. If it was never working before, just setup the connection.

Hey hi i am using Hp elitebook 6930p. actually my wifi button is not working which is on the top of keybord. is there any other way to enable the wifi


The HP Wireless Assistant application, which should be installed on your notebook, has an option to turn the WiFi radio on and off.
If the application is not installed, or you need additional information, visit HP's page about Wireless Assistant here:

Good luck :)

Hp laptop not connecting to buffalo wireless router


does your laptop have the same type of wifi card? alot of people make this mistake over and over. all routers transmit at different frequences, you must make sure your wifi card accepts the same as the router. for example, if your router is a 802.11g, your laptop has to be a "g" aswel, modern wifi cards can take 3 or more different ones. the older the laptop is then the older the wifi card is, may need upgrading.

has your laptop connected to it or other routers before? check your wifi settings and make sure the routers wifi setting is turned to ON, you can gain access to the routers main settings byconnecting the router to your laptop via an ethernet cable, going to start, control panel, network and internet, right click your router and click properties, write down the I.P address it gives you on screen, then open internet exlorer, and type the I.P address you wrote down, press enter. you should now have access to all the main settings. hope this helps

Is HP G61 a wifi hotspot?


You cannot setup your laptop as a WiFi hotspot, but if you have a wireless router and it is connected to a DSL or cable modem you can allow all your wireless connected devices to connect to the wireless router so they can communicate between each other and connect to the Internet.

Set up hp pavilion a1240n. Have high speed wireless. My iPad connects but the pc won't. I restored back to original settings after trying everything else. Moved this computer into another room to keep...


there is no highspeed wifi. but yes 3/4g.

dont you mean you have wifi router
to connect you MUST match it, not husbands CPU.
the router broadcasts a wifi SSID, name
you click that and match what the router wants.
such is WPA2
and a pass phrase.
if you old A1240 is set to wep only or is so old it cant do WPA/2
then it fails.
I have no idea what WIFI card is your old PC.
and that matters big time.

what is best is login to the router and read what it wants
them may your pC do that.
I warn you the most old wifi cards are useless.
buy a WPA2 card (or usb wifi dongle new)

NO OS stated by you is this the virus magnet XP?

it will not interfere with HUSbands computer.
it will move to unused channels, auto, if set that way as it should.

My wifi does not show up on my other laptop but my neighbors' networks show up and my wifi shows up on my iphone/ipod, any suggestion? i've tried plugging straight to the network>didn't work. one day it...


Hi Janet
I think you'll need someone to come round to have a look.
The basic problem doesn't make sense - if your ipod can see it then it's transmitting OK.
If your laptop can see your neighbour's wifi then your laptop is receiving. Therefor it should see your wifi.
These sorts of problems are very difficult to resolve from a distance.
The fact that you can't connect with a cable would suggest that the problem is with the laptop - but then again!!!!

Problems with HP iPAQ rx1950 Pocket PC not connecting to wifi


make sure your wifi is on for both devices, laptop and device. try to temporarily disable windows firewall to see if that is whyat causing the problem.

Since other devices are connecting then it is most likely the PDA that has the problem.
Is your devices set to use 802.11g technology, what possible WI-FI settings do you have in your device.
