HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Losing Internet Connect Constantly
Apr 4, 2009
My notebook has recently been losing internet connection very often. I don't have to move or anything, it just loses connection. I have a verizon fios router, i've had this notebook since September 08' and never had this problem before. My signal strength is full.
My device manager says my network adapters are:
-Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
-RealTek RTL8168(C)P/8111(C)P Family PCI-E GBE NIC
Could it have something to do with my wireless mouse? If I switch it to wired mode, my laptop still loses connection to the internet.
Also, as a side question, how do i stop windows update from trying to install the same update over and over?
As above I keep losing internet connection on HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC and often have to turn off to get it back. I have had the laptop for over a year now and have had this problem from day one. Often there are no connections to be seen at all. I can be on a site fine one minuete then the next it just freezes. Sometimes clicking dissconnect then reconnect will resolve the issue. But most of the time I have to switch off, leave it off for a few mins then reboot. This does not always work so I have to do it again.
As above, I have had this issue from day one. When I got it home there were no connections to be seen. I took it streight back to PC World they switched it on and connections were there. When I got home, switched on others were there but not my own. After switching off and on again mine was there. After that it was okay for a week or so then I started getting the problems I have now. My son sitting about three feet away from me on his lap top has no problems at all so I know it is the laptop and not my router. Also my wifes, my son's and my phone are on the internet through the router when this goes off. Now and then it will be okay for a couple of days but most of the time it goes off several times a day.
I have just purchased an Acer Aspire E5-511, it repeatedly loses internet connection (wifi) despite still showing as being connected. I have read that numerous other people have experienced this problem but I have not found a solution that works. I have tried updating the driver and changing the battery power settings etc. I have spent ages transferring all my files accross so am reluctant to have to send it back now.
I just bought my first laptop and it's a DV6-1253ca itz pretty sick. I have one problem though, when I try to connect to my home network, it says im connected but I can't go on the internet or sign into msn anything related to connecting to the internet i cant do. I disconnect and reconnect and it only sometimes work. This also happens when I close the lid~put the computer to sleep and i turn in bk on again, it connects to my home network by itself but still I can't go on the internet.
I am using HP Compaq 15 a00t2u, windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. I'm not able to connect to the internet via WiFi. Everytime I connect, it says,"no network access." There's a yellow triangle over the WiFi icon. Windows diagonsed it but failed to correct it. A message appears " Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP address. At times, it fixes the issue but within seconds, the problem again hops up.I am able to connect my mobile and other devices via same router. Also, when I switch on my mobile's Wifi Tethering, laptop connects to the network easily without any issue.
I have a HP Compaq Presario CQ56 notebook computer. It was set up correctly when I bought it, everything worked perfectly. I somehow managed to get a virus which prevented me from even turning on my computer (Which is odd, because I'm not an idiot with computers, and I know what not to download/sites to visit), so I had to reset my computer back to stock, I used my Windows 7 disk, formatted the partitions and installed windows again.
Now, for some reason it won't connect wirelessly to the internet. It connects when I have an ethernet cable plugged in, but it won't find any networks, as shown in this screen shot:
I'm not sure what's causing it, but I guess it must be a driver issue?
Here's another screenshots :
It works fine when I have my laptop plugged into the internet, when I'm at uni, but when I come home on a weekend I can't bring my laptop back, because I only have WiFi back home.
So just moved and went to setup my office again and everything works fine except my M1530 cant connect over wifi. I have Roudrunner, a Linksys WRT55AG, Vista Desktop, M1530 laptop, HP laptop, and iphone. Everything except my M1530 can access the internet.
It says that I am connected to my wirless network but not the internet. I can access the internet when my laptop is directly plugged in via lan cable to router but whenever I disconnect the lan cable and try to go online over the wireless I cant! Under device manager everything looks fine except "isatap" it says there is an error code 31.
I bought new HP15-g005ax and installed windows 7 (64 bit). I have installed the drivers downloaded from hp official weblink. URL...I can't connect with internet using LAN (cable) and device manager shows yellow sign and asks to install driver for ethernet controller. I can't find the required driver from HP's website for HP15-g005ax as its not listed there.
Product: HP 15-g029wm Notebook PC Original OS: Windows 8 Currently Installed: Windows 7
I recently downgraded my Windows 8 HP 15-g029wm Notebook to Windows 7 Ultimate. Of course this has caused issues with drivers, and the Windows 7 64-bit drivers listed on HP's website for my laptop do not work properly. Currently the laptop does not recognize any USB device and I am unable to connect to the Internet, making it difficult to run any diagnostics to obtain information needed to find the best drivers for my system. Where can I find drivers for my laptop that will allow it to function properly?
I installed Elementary OS on my notebook the other day. I can't connect to the internet via wireless.The problem persisted on Debian and OpenSUSE. Also, I've seen that HP provides drivers for SUSE, but I can't install them on OpenSUSE.
I have a Dell Inspiron N7010 running Windows 7 a friend did a clean install on my computer after my game a and dell factory restore along with a some other issues continued to give out error message. In doing so he completly wiped the driver software out. So now I can't connect to the internet and my aero transparnce isn't working either. I checked the device manager and under Other Devices were 3 drives a PCI controlle(i belivie) network adaptor and ethernet adopter. I'm not what driver software i should install in order to get it back working or at least the internet back up.
I own an HP Envy dv6 Notebook PC, MOdel No.2CE243OCYT. It has an Atheros AR9485 802.11 b:g:n WiFi adapter. There is an HP update for that adapter, but when I updated it, I was unable to connect to the internet. I realize that this WiFi adapter is only for 2.5G. I had to refresh my laptop, then I had internet access again. I have not tried that driver update again, but TWC just updated my Cable modem to dual band using the 2.5G and 5G bands.I am afraid to install the Atheros update in my lapotop again because I don't want to go though the hassle of re-installing all my software pd[rograms again.Is there a dual band WiFi adapter that HP recommends, and is it easy to install?
I have an HP G60 Notebook PC with Windows Vista Home Premium, it's about 4 years old. I recently got a new Cisco Linksys E1500 wireless router, which is connected to my home computer. My laptop shows that it is connected to the home network, but it will not connect to the internet. Other laptops in the house are able to connect to the network and the internet. Mine seems to be the only one not working. Why isn't it working? What do I need to do to fix it?
I've run network diagnostics. It says "A problem with you network router or broadband modem might be preventing an internet connection." I've unplugged both of these and tried again. It didn't work! I've also connected my laptop straight to the modem and it still didn't connect to the internet. I've tried resetting the network adapter. My IP settings are set to automatic.
My internet connection wasn't a problem before last week (when I got a new router).
I have been dealing with this for a while now, and it just happened out of no where. I turned on my computer one morning and it wouldnt allow me to connect to my wifi. I have tried EVERYTHING. My computer does allow me to connect an ethernet cord to it and the router and use the internet that way. I know it's not the router because I use the internet on my iPhone and tablet. When I attempt to connect to internet it has a red X where the wireless icon used to be, now the icon looks like a computer screen instead the the little bars. When I tap my wireless button on my key pad a message comes up and notifies me that i just turned my wireless connection off, but no matter if it's off or on that little button always has the orange light on. I can't figure out whats going on
Yesterday everything was working fine, I turned off the laptop, went out, turned it on in the morning and bam, no internet. I reinstalled drivers, then reinstalled the system and nothing changed. It certainly isn't router's fault, since other devices can connect to the Wi-Fi
I solved it, somehow wireless network card got turned off and I just figured out Fn+F5 prompts a window where I could turn it back on.
Something is wrong with it. I am running it on windows 7. I did a [URL] .... system restore to like a year ago and it still won't connect. Not only does the wifi not work, the Ethernet cable wont work also. and it says im connected to a public network but with limited access. what should i do?
I'm using Windows7 on Dell vostro1500, I'm unable to connect to Internet through wireless modem router, let me know whether I need to Install any driver separately for the same. If yes Please provide me the link for for the drivers.
I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 5515 Laptop. Has a built in Wireless card. It detects the hotspots with no problem. It connects to the available networks with no problem. But it will not connect to any internet service. Strange, but that is also what trouble shooter says. Connects to network, but not to internet, thus browser cannot resolve to any URL.
I even disabled firewall to see if it would help, but it will not.
Even has issues trying to network at home using ethernet cards. Detects, but will not connect.
its my dads laptop, a dell vostro 1540 just over a year old i believe and its running 7, in recent times it has been taking a good 10 mins (yesterday half an hour) to automatically connect to the internet, the router is downstairs and the laptop is used upstairs and its getting a signal of about 3-4 bars.
I can't get my presario c700 to connect to the internet. only get local connection. I have tried using compaq's website, microsoft, and atheros website. Nothing is working. I've downloaded a bunch of different drivers. I've found multiple forums with links to drivers that worked, but when I click on them they can't be found. Getting extremely frustrated. All of my other devices connect fully so I know its not my router.
My son has a HP Pavilion g6 laptop which operates Windows 8.1 All been working fine until yesterday when the orange light on the f12 button came on and laptop won't connect to the internet. we can't turn this light off.
I have recieved at work a lenovo t440 notebook, everything worked fine, untill one day I noticed that I cannot conect to the internet via lan cable. I plug in the cable and it is not detected. I checked the cable to another notebook and it was working. I have a Intel Ethernet Connection I218-LM controller, I have re-installed both network drivers from lenovo and intel websites and nothing works. I've tried as well to get automatically from windows update, no result. Went to bios cheked if the lan connection is enabled, everything was in place. Is there anything I missed? I noticed a weird behaviour, if I connect through wireless network, after sometime the lan connection is established and I can use it, but without wireless connection it doesn't work.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1764 about a month ago it started having internet problems. I have ruled out the problems being related to the actual internet service. I have excellent wifi signal and yet my laptop constantly connects and disconnects. The length of time varies. Some days I get to be on the net while others I dont at all. I have run diagnostics, downloaded darn near every update imaginable.
I have a Dell Inspiron N4110, which I recently installed a new windows on. I can't seem to connect to the internet. Before the new installation the WIFI worked fine, but now even connecting through ethernet doesn't work. I looked through my Network drivers and there are only two.
I've tried download and installing others but no hope.
