I just bought a new hp zbook 15 that comes with FreeDos and I bought Win7 Home Premium SP1. I installed the windows and it works until i try to connect to the internet. It says "no connection available" and the icon has a red x on the bottom right. When I checked the "device manager", I saw that i don't have either the network controller nor the ethernet controller. I have looked for then it the drivers section but i cant find them...
I just purchased a HP laptop 13-c004TU (I think -- too small to read). It is seeing my home wireless internet and listing on available networks. I have typed in my security key, yet it is still saying that it cannot connect to that network. I have been on the phone with my ISP and they cannot see why it does not connect. Usually, in these cases, I would hard-cable it to the router, but the laptop does not have an appropriate connection port. Obviously, being new, it is Win 8.1 ..........
I have had this problem a couple times, and each time I had to restart my entire computer and reinstall everything before I could connect again. The computer has no problem connecting with a cable, but it says it can't find Wi-Fi. I would really love to avoid restarting and restoring the computer for a fifth time if I could. I don't know the specifics of the computer, I think it might be a 14z Touch...
I bought my HP 15 a few days ago and since yesterday (after I restarted it) it can't find my network. Also, sometimes it finds all the surrounding networks, sometimes one or two, sometimes none of them, but it never shows mine.
All my other devices connect to the network just fine and also when I connect the laptop via Ethernet cable internet works normally. I tried reinstalling the adapter and driver, but nothing happens, the problem is still here.
Recently got a macbook for the first time and I'm having trouble figuring out how to connect to the other (vista pc) computers on my network. Of course on vista I would just click network and it would show all devices online, but here nothing shows.......so I've looked up walkthroughs and I have to go to GO/ connect to server, then punch in the computer name...ok....but once I'm in, all I see on the pc I tested on is this "users" folder and nother else. I have virtually everything set to share....what am I doing wrong? Why can't I see the normal public/shared folders? Is there an easier way to connect to my home network computers?
I have a DV6-2170us. I would like to know the easiest/cheapest way to maximize my file transfers over my home network. The house is wired with a gigabit ethernet infrastructure, but the HP only has 100Mbs controller. I would like to get best speed possible for large media file transfers/backups.
My questions are:Can I add gigabit ethernet to the laptop somehow?Would it be easier to just add an eSATA card to my media server desktop PC?Should I just replace my 802.11g with a 802.11n router?
My wife's Studio 17 laptop developed an issue today. Sometime between noon and 3pm, the wireless card in her computer stopped working. Everything in hardware diagnostics indicates that everything is functioning...but it will not connect to our home network. I have troubleshot the wireless system...and everything on the router is working normally. When I try to connect to the wireless network, the computer tries to connect, but eventfully just says it cannot connect.
I just got a new Thinkpad 540p but it can't consistently connect to my home wireless network. Since a day of getting it, it was able to connect on 3 separate occasions. One being the one during the initial set up which was fine. But after that it will resort to a limited access state after a few minutes as well as with the other instances that I was able to connect. The same thing happens if I try to restart it right away after connecting. It goes to limited access. If I disconnect and try to reconnect, it won't allow me to. It prompts me to a troubleshooting step which did not work at all. I've been trying all day and night to look up solutions but with no clear one ....
This one runs on Windows 7 btw.... The wireless adapter is just a 2x2 11b/g/n wireless lan m.2 adapter... updated drivers and everything. Also, none of our other devices such as mobile phones and an HP desktop have problems connecting.
I've just bought a XPS M1530 Laptop (so excited!). But I have some problem connecting to wireless networks.
My roommates can find and connect to our wireless network, while my machine cannot even find one!! It can't even create wireless networks (ad hoc)
I looked up Dell support, it said to uninstall network driver and restart windows (vista HP, SP1). I did that, after reboot, it could find the available network, but after another reboot, it again didn't work.
I'm pretty sure that nothing is wrong with hardware (since it could find once or twice). But I don know what to do.

My dv2000t came with Vista installed but Vista is now broken and gone and I want to install WinXP instead. I installed XP but XP cant find any network adapter on the laptop. I have an ethernet cable plugged in to the laptop. Prior to this there was no problem connecting to the internet with this machine. Win XP can't find the network adapter therefore I can't use the internet at all. Since this dv2000t came with Vista installed maybe the network adapter requires something not available in XP therefore you can only use it with Vista loaded.
why XP can't find any network adapter on this dv2000t?
I have Dell Inspiron n7110. In my notebook install Dell Wireless 1702 802.11b/g/n. Recently notice that I can not find any Wi-Fi network. But in Task Manager I see that Dell Wireless module is working properly. I reinstall all drivers twice, but it's still don't work and don't find any Wi-Fi network.

This is regarding hp 15-r007tx..I cant connect to the WiFi network . I can only use wired connection. Also the wifi button is permanently off(orange colour). No matter how many times I press its the same and wont detect wifi. Is it hardware or driver problem.
I have an HP Pavilion dv7-6163us laptop and the network does not show up in the Network and Sharing Center. I have tried to reinstall the drivers for the RealTek PCIe GBE Family controller to no avail. I did update the driver for the Intel Centrino Wireless N-1000, so now the wireless light is blue instead of orange. Is the network card toast? I started it up this morning and no network, even plugged in ( cannot recognize that a network even exists on the laptop).
RealTek PCIe controller: VEN 10EC DEV 8168
Also getting a fatal error message from HP Connection Manger:
"A fatal error occurred, check the HP Connection Manager in Event Viewer for more details. A socket operation encountered a dead network".
I just reinstalled a HP pro 3300 SFF with a clean win 7. Download drivers from the hp site but when I try to install I get a message that no Intel components was found. Downloaded the Chipset driver along with the drivers for network but still no luck.....
