Internet connection on laptop

Hey I got a Hp Pavilion dv6000 laptop and a linksys router, when I try to connect to the network it keeps saying connection unsuccessful but then when I open the network and sharing center it keeps trying to identify the network then it says unidentified network. the modem and the router is connected just like they are in the manual. It just will not identify the network, It has worked in the past but it won't work for some reason now. I tried connecting my psp to the router and followed the instructions I found on the internet. after I did that it won't work know

If you could please help

    same computer dv6000 I downloaded some windows updates..the computer locked up....I did a restore to earlier that day and now my computer will not identifie my actiontec gt704wg...I have two other laptops that are working fine on the same router...so it is not the actiontec...it must be in the pc.

I have a wireless network of computers, one wired and 2 wireless. in the correct setup, my other acer laptop doesn have internet, but s connected to the router, and this laptop im using CAN connect...


All the computers should have the same NETWORK NAME or SSID.

Recheck the settings and make an adhoc connection for each of the computers to your router.

You can also get a USB wireless adapter to enable ht NO internet laptop and connect them.

Just keep playing with the NETWORK SETTINGS.

Make sure all are connected to the SAME SSID.

Hope it helped.

God Bless You!

Laptop says no internet connection


First you need to ensure proper connection and filtering. Make sure the source cable is plugged into the Linksys router first. Direct connections must be made to the router, meaning the cable to your main computer should come from the router, not the main source.

Next make sure that the connection is made. You should see a light on the router indicating proper internet connection. Once this is accomplished, connect your main computer and you should have access to the internet on it.

Now comes the easy but somewhat tricky part (tricky only because icons can vary a little). If you haven't already done so, run the setup disk for Linksys. It's has simple, easy-to-follow instructions to set up your network. Now for the laptop. On the blue bar at the bottom of the laptop screen there should be an icon indicating internet connection. Click on that icon to show available wireless networks. Most likely your Linksys router will show up as a secure network. When you click on that connection it will ask you for a WEP key. That key is usually a 10 digit alpha-numeric key written on the back of the router. Sometimes it's on the box the router came in. Sometimes it requests a 12 digit WEP key, in which case simply add two zeros to the front of that same key. If you set up a password for your wireless network you will need that as well.

NOTE: if you have neighbors close, you should always secure your network with a password.

You may need to shut down and restart the laptop in order for the changes to take place.

It sounds confusing, but once you start you'll find that it's actually fairly straight forward. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Cannot connect wirelessly to my Linksys WRT160n, but wired works


Get Network Magic ... download for evaluation.

This is a tremendous network management tool well worth the $. If you dont pay, you can still use most features.

Get it and use it to get your connection going at least.

Let me know what happens

Wireless router


You may need to turn the WiFi card on. Many Laptops allow you to turn the cards off to save power. Look for a button acros the top of the keyboard or on the side whick may have a WiFi logo or a little aerial icon.

Router just doesn't work?


If the computer works fine when directly connected to the modem, it means to say that your ISP is able to provide you a connection. You might have to access the page of the router via internet explorer (192.168.1.1) and double-check the settings. Check the status tab of the router and see if the router is able to get an IP address from the modem.

Thanks!
