Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
righteo, this is sounding like a either a configuration error either between your node computer (laptop) and the comms device (modem router), so best we sart with ensuring that all links to this are established correctly. This wll prevent your node losing the comms device or vice versa. Once you have established that a link is correct, it may be best to ensure that your connection to-and-fro from the commms device is secure. Do this by assigning a WPA key (dont use WEP as this can be hacked by anyone foolish or determined enough to need an internet connection, wich could also explain why you are being booted).
To deal with the security of your modem/router, if you are using winxp, then click on start>run>type in command.com>then type IPCONFIG.
you will end up with a series of numbers, for example 125.67.89.00
This will be your modem/router ip address
just logon to that using windows Internet explorer and typing the IP address in the address window. NOTE: you have to be connected to the comms device for this to work.
Once you bring up what looks like a webpage but with your comms device manufacturer on it, you just then configure yor selected WPA key and can choose anything you like (just remember what it is please, otherwise you will have to reset your comms device and go through the lot again)
once you have done this, you can even go out and buy WiFI repeaters, or build a cantenna, this will boost the signal to your comms device. if you go to google and type in "how to build a cantenna" it will take you to a site, which strangely enough is called "guide to building a waveguide antenna/ cantenna" NOTE: i dont recommend trying this unless you know what you are doing with electronics.
If after even all of this, you still have a problem, then try downloading the latesat drivers and firmware updates for your computer/ laptop,. This may resolve.
If even this fails, check yo dont have spyware, phishers, worms, trojans or anything that is likely to be knicking your bandwidth.
Should this even not help, tyhen i reckon to give your machine a complete wipe and re-install everything bit by bit to see what affects yor system and how (it takes time and is a pain in the backside i know, but it is advisable to be done)
Afterall of this, you still have an issue, then either your modem/router/ comms device has malfunctioned, or your internal WLAN card/ network adapter has gone waffty. which means you will then need to contact someone like myself, who will either overhaul the unit or replace it (whichever is the easiest for you).
Good luck with this, and i hope that it pays off,
just remember to work on it systematically, start with the software environment (includes viruses, malware, warez and intruders) at your computer, then query the configuration, then query the exchange between your computer and the comms device, then finally moving on to the hardware. NOTE::::WEATHER conditions can adversely affect your wireless signals, as can where you have got your equipment located. try to keep it within 30 metres apart and away from re-inforced walls and doors. Probably also not a good idea to put the comms device in a metal box or similar enclosure (as this will make the equipment work harder and still only knock out a **** signal)
once again, good luck, and hope you suceed

I hope this would help you. You said you're using a wireless connection,,,,, that is a common problem basically. if you are in your room , closed door or anywhere indoor, make sure you have an opening like your window , try to open it and then observe,,,, I always experience the same as yours, when I am travelling around China, my connection is also wireless from ZTE network, although it only gave me a 280.30 kps but it worth using my laptop around. Try it ... nothing to lose anyway.... Pls. send feedback..., maybe we can alternatives to your problems..
