Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000Z Notebook

1 Answer

Internet connection light

I did not have the laptop for several months. When I attempted to connect to the net, I found it would not respond. It seems to me that there was a light that came on when it was connected. It ain't. Isn't there a button I am supposed to push? I lost the instruction book which was very good. Thanks.

Help & Support has everything that's in the owner's Guide. Just ask it.

Top left button, above the keyboard, is Wireless On/Off.

If nothing happens, go to CONTROL PANEL / NETWORK CONNECTIONS. R-click on Wireless Network Connection. L-click DISABLE. Wait about 5 seconds, do it again and L-click ENABLE. That should reset the modem and get things going.

After you establish an internet connection, go to START / PROGRAMS / HP / HP (SOFTWARE) UPDATES and install the latest patches. They will include aa newer version of HP Wireless Assistant

Good luck.

Try resetting the router by unplugging it from the outlet and from the modem.Also reset the modem by unplugging it for a few minutes also.After you do that it may take several attempts for it to reconnect with your laptop.

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.

I had a few people who had problems similar to yours it needs a lot of work arounds.

1. Make sure your firwall or virus program does not interupt the IE. (try closing it for a while)

2. Put everything in IE in defaults.

3. Update the IE directly from the net

goodluck
