Windows cannot find any networks on a HP530 Laptop, the wireless works only when manually connected

    What do you mean that the wireless works only when manually connected? Are you referring to when you manually plug the ethernet cable or when you manually enter the name of the wireless access point? If it's the latter, the wireless access points are probably configured to not broadcast it's name. If that's the case, the wireless access point will have to be configured to broadcast its network name (aka SSID name).

Unplug the power to your modem. This is the box from your cable or DSL provider. Unplug the power to your VOIP phone adapter. If you don't have one skip this step. Unplug the power to your router. Wait 45 seconds, then Plug in your modem and wait for lights to stabilize on a specific pattern. (Usually takes about 1 minute) Plug in your VOIP phone adapter (if you have VOIP service) and wait until you have a dial tone on your phone again. If you don't have VOIP or know what VIOP is, skip this step.Plug in your VOIP phone adapter (if you have VOIP service) and wait until you have a dial tone on your phone again. If you don't have VOIP or know what VIOP is, skip this step. You may need to restart your computer for this to work :)

Your router is likely configured to not "Broadcast" its SSID name. You need to reconfigure the router to broadcast the SSID.

HOW DO I TURN ON THE WIRELESS ON MY TOBISHA LAPTOP


If you're using a Toshiba laptop and you can't figure out how to enable WiFi you probably aren't alone. Thankfully there are several approaches you can take from a hardware and Windows Operating System stance to turn on your wireless connection while making sure you can properly connect to a wireless network.

      Look at the keyboard options on your laptop. You should see a button that looks like a small antenna. The button placement may vary from device to device. For instance, you may have a dedicated button or it may be placed much like the option circled in the picture to the left of this step.

    • 2

      Click on the "Windows Start Button" and Navigate to "Control Panel" then click on "Network Connections" or "Network and Sharing" depending on your version of Windows.

    • 3

      Right-click on your wireless connection icon once the "Network Connections" window opens. Choose "Enable" and left-click on that option with your mouse. Wait for the wireless connection to enable.

      Alternatively you can try clicking on the " Windows Start Button" and then clicking on "Connect to," where you will click on "Show all connections." When the connection window opens up, you should right-click on "Wireless Network Connection" and then choose "Enable." Now right-click on "Wireless network connections" and then choose "View Available Wireless Networks" to see if your WiFi adapter is enabled.


Hope this was helpfull

On my Windows XP laptop I cannot get the wireless to work. All it says is "limited or no connectivity" when it connects. I have tried a million things, and nothing works! What can I do?


Disconnect your laptop wireless connection from the wireless acess connection. (Reboot your laptop if necessary). Then reconnect your laptop wireless connection, if your wireless network is a secured wireless network, your laptop will prompt for a network key ie your wireless network SSID password. Make sure the network key correctly entered ie.("Most wireless password keys are Upper or Lower case sensitive")

If the problem persist, then use the "Command Prompt"
Start ->"Run" ->Type "CMD" ->The command prompt will appear, then type ie without the quotes,
1. "ipconfig /release" -> enter
2. "ipconfig /renew" -> enter
3. "ipconfig /flushdns" -> enter

Hope it helps.

I can not figure out how to get the computer to make a wireless connection.


Add the Home SSID to the Preferred Network List After you set the SSID on your home gateway, you may need to add it to your preferred network list if Windows XP Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled. (Although automatic configuration is nice to have, your IT department may have disabled it on your laptop in order to meet their needs. If they have, you'll need to use the tool provided by your laptop or wireless manufacturer to manually configure wireless settings.) To manually add your home wireless network to the list of preferred networks when Wireless Auto Configuration is enabled, follow these steps:
• In Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.
• Right-click the Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
• On the Wireless Networks tab, shown in Figure 3, click Add.

Figure 3
• In the Wireless network properties dialog box, shown in Figure 4, enter the SSID you configured for your wireless gateway (ExampleHome_g in this example.)
netw4.jpg
Figure 4
Note: Figure 4 assumes you've added the Windows WPA Client Update. If you haven't downloaded and installed it, you probably should. For more on the WPA Client Update, see Overview of the WPA Wireless Security Update in Window XP.
• Fill in the rest of the fields, including the necessary authentication and encryption information based on the configuration of your wireless gateway.
• Click OK and your home network will be added to the list of preferred networks.
Now, whenever you're at home, your work laptop should automatically see your home wireless network and connect to it.

Windows cannot connect to the wireless network


I would remove old cache wireless network connections. Example is when you once connect to a free wireless access at Library or Coffee Shop. Windows save all of these profiles and this will cause problems connecting. Then use Microsoft Wireless Troubleshooting resource:

Try resetting your wireless router first, then make sure that the network you are connecting to is yours and not another nearby wireless signal (I live in an area that's polluted with wireless signals and sometimes a neighbor's signal will be stronger than mine, so it will try to connect to theirs). If that doesn't work then go to your Network and Sharing Center and choose the setup a network connection option. You'll have to manually enter your info again but it should work fine.

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.
