Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Wireless internet issue

I can't get the internet on my laptop whereas it worked 2 days ago. I am pretty sure my laptop (with Windows Vista) has a built-in wireless networking support as there is a switch that I move to turn it to "wireless". I also have a home computer with Windows XP, qwest broadband modem, and Netgear as the router. The laptop shows netgear has a strong connection but it says the problem might be that it is "busy". My home computer's internet works fine. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

    Thank you for the info and what exactly I need to type as I'd like to think I have a clue with all this techno stuff but it is getting a bit over my head... I will try all 3 things when I get home. Let's cross our fingers that it works. I'm not thrilled to hear that you had trouble with this daily nor that I'm seeing a trend from other owners of this lap top as I read other problems. Did I buy a lemon?

Be sure to check the big three.

ip address. go into command prompt and type "ipconfig/reset"

then "ipconfig/renew"

then retry.

thats the main one.

then check your windows firewall settings. see if your browser is blocked.

the last one could be the router has to be reset. this one happend to me on a daily bassis with this same laptop. you can unplug and plug it then redo the connections.

I have a laptop running vista ultimate 32 bit version and i am having problems connecting to the internet. It says I am connected but will browse the internet. Are the troubleshooting steps the same as...


The steps are the same though the menus and screens you go through to do them are a bit different from XP. Pretty much all the software steps you can do are covered by the troubleshooter in vista and 7 though, so if you have ran that without a solution, then the likelyhood that it's a setting in windows causing the issue is fairly low.

First I would confirm that your connection is actually working. If you are attempting to connect the laptop with wireless it is not uncommon for routers to stop responding correctly to wireless clients, or even for the wireless portion of a router to die while wired connections still work perfectly. Try plugging the laptop in with a wire and see if you still have the same problem. If wired worked but wireless did not, then unplug your router, wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in. Retry the wireless and if it still does not work then a replacement router will be required to use wireless, though you could get a second cable and use it wired until you do replace it.

Hi, the gateway is your cable modem, so if that 3rd laptop can't find the gateway, it can't make its way out onto the Internet. Do you know if you're using DHCP (to automatically assign IP addresses to your computers)? If you're not sure, you probably are, and all you'd need to do to fix the problem is to open a command prompt on that laptop with the problem (in Windows XP, go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt; in Windows Vista or 7 you can just type "command prompt" into the search bar) and at the command line, type "ipconfig /release" and then, once the command completes (which might take a minute) type "ipconfig /renew". This will force your laptop to re-acquire its IP address, complete with subnet mask and default gateway address.
An alternate way to do it is to right click on your wireless icon in the system notification area of the taskbar and select Repair. It will accomplish the same thing as above, but Windows will do the legwork for you.
Hopefully that should fix your problem. If not, leave a comment and we'll go from there. Good luck!

What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Have vista windows. Three days ago my grandchild


Sorry but once the internet explorer history has been deleted you could no longer retrieve it. I'm not sure if vista includes ie history in the recovery when you do a restore to a previous date. you could try that, however, it is most likely already deleted.

LinkedIn tanks at log in w/ Windows Vista, fine with prior operating systems


Hello,
It sounds like you have connection issues.
For starter please consider disabling your firewall (under control panel) then try connecting.
If this doesn't work please try reseting internet explorer settings (under explorer-tools).
Check with tech support of linkedln to see if they require special internet explorer security settings and have them walk you through your settings to make sure nothing has changed.
Last but not least I'd try to go to system restore and restore to a point where you are sure evrything had worked like couple of weeks ago or even one month ago if possible.
(start-programs-accessories-system tools-system restore).
The system restore tool doesn't erase or change any data although if installed any program since that point you are going to have to reinstall it since system restore will restore all registry information to that specific point and disregard everything you did afterwards, therefor I'm going to have to tell you to use at your own risk.
Good luck.
Thank you for using agadycom.
