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.

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.

If you are having an issue with your wireless at home, try changing the security settings on your router i.e changing the password, or encryption type.

Wireless on my laptop is not working


Virus, what fun. I do know how to get the windows Wireless Manager working again if it is displaying "Windows cannot configure wireless settings" Do as follows: Open the Wireless Manager> Click Change advanced settings> click the tab labled Wiless Netoworks and make sure the box in the top left hand corner is ticked. Then the Wireless manager should be working. If the virus is still causing you greif, download and install AVG Free 8.0. It's a free virus protection software that works a charm.
Thats just my advice.

Wireless adapter


check the ettings on the router have not been altered. the chance of 2 wireless cards failing in the same time, on different pcs is very small, more likely the settings that allow connection in the router, the item common to both, have been changed, reinstalling the router has no effect on user settings,
WEP, encryption, MAC controls are all possible suspects, if there has been any change
lock down the router,
many wireless networks are unsecured at the router so that any person driving past can access your router and alter it, default security settings should be changed the day you turn it on

Problems with wireless and MS Vista


Try these first:

change channels to 1-6-or 11. Make sure you change all of your wireless computers4.gif.


check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones1.gif and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.
