My laptop used to connect to the interent and no settings were changed. it was put in my closet for a few months while we moved and now when i try to connect it asks for the standard network key which also hasn't changed but instead of accepting the key it now says the password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on the network configuration.So how would we change the bits or why would we need to if it never needed to before?

Re: connecting to internet
The network key is with the wireless router that you have. When you moved, your router reestablished itself with a new connection at a new location, and more than likely set a new key. Try reconfiguring your router with a new network key, then configure the laptop with the new key, and it should connect.

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.
Resumed: EXCUSE ME BUT YOUR QUESTION IS A MESs
Android 2.2 has wifi problems. But you can do radio site survey and connect hotspot to see what went wrong? you may have signal interference from refrigerator or other sources. Or moving objects reflecting wifi signals. Most wifi/g/n chipsets use ofdm mode which has more signal problems than the /b DSSS mode. We are recommending older laptops to use /b wifi cards.
1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox) 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop/desktop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly. 8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router 9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.
A neighbor's connection could very well affect you. That's what I think your problem is. Now, to be honest, a 36mbs connection is pretty darn good. It's rare that an application would require more. Even a video streaming solution will work fine over that kind of connection. My professional opinion is, not to do anything.
do you have dsl cable also ? did you recently restore computer? sounds like your driver isn't working right try makeing sure on buttom is turned on in the pc sometimes even though it is picking it wifi won't work ,also might try looking at your internet options check connections lan settings should be a check in the top box on the automatic detect settings make sure that is check orther wise it will not connnect ... lala linda let me know
Hello. By no means am I any kind of trained computer repair person and have no idea about changing the "bits', HOWEVER, I can think of 2 very simple things to do, either one may solve your problems. Since this "problem' developed when the computer was just sitting in a closet and not being used I would think you could fix this by tapping the F8 key while the computer is booting up. This will pause the boot and cause the OS to offer you a few choices such as 'Boot in Safe Mode", etc., etc., and "Use Last Known Good Configuration" - which is the one I would choose. Just scroll down until it is highlighted, then press enter, then it will ask you to choose your OS (operating system), highlight it and press enter then the computer will make adjustments and boot up to the last known good configuration which will most likely "fix" your problem. The only other thing I know to do is click on "Start", click on "Help & Support", click on "Undo changes to your computer with SYSTEM RESTORE", then follow the easy prompts. Depending on how much space you have alloted for 'system restore points' you may be able to choose the date you put the pc in the closet (when it had no problems)!! Either of these "fixes" are super easy yet they are powerful enough to reconfigure your setting and make your pc work again. Lots of people do not like to use System Restore but I've never understood why because I have used it a few times over the course of the last 4 to 5 years and it has miraculously "fixed" all my problems. Good Luck !!
