HP Pavilion G6 Networking :: WiFi Connection Dropping Out?
Sep 5, 2014
I've had an HP Laptop Pavilion g6 for around a year, operating on Windows 8.1
I'm repreatedly (and increasingly) losing wifi connection to router - all other devices using the same wifi connection (desktop pc, nexus phone, samsung phone) all retain connection and internet access but the Pavilion keeps dropping off.
I just got my new HP ENVY laptop. Product Name: m6-k025dx. It runs on Windows 8 64-bit. I am experiencing sudden, frequent loss of my Wifi connection. When it gets disconnected I don't even get the Connect To slider (which slides from the right side of the screen and shows the list of networks) on clicking the network button at bottom right corner of the screen. I need to restart my laptop to get connected again and after 5-7 minutes, I lose it again.
editing the Power Plan to maximum performance and unchecking "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" but nothing seems to work.
The network driver is Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230. I have also updated the driver and turned off Bluetooth and ethernet
I am getting intermittently dropped wifi connection. It is a new/nearly new xps 12 convertible from the Dell outlet store a couple of months ago. I have installed all windows updates including win 8.1. My network adapter is an Intel Dual band wireless AC-7260 #2. I searched on the intel site using the auto driver function and it cannot find any new drivers there for it.
I have also set the wifi adapter to "maximum performance" whether on battery or plugged in and it happens anyway (even when plugged into AC).Is there anything I can do for this or does a technician need to replace the wifi card (or do I need to RMA the notebook)?
My HP Pavilion 14e016tx (win 7, 64-bit, ralink rt3290 802.11) just won't detect any WiFi connections. Sometimes it does detect but when I try to connect, it always show the failure message ("windows was unable to connect to xxxxx".
My daughter has a HP Split 13-m111sa x2 notebook/tablet. She got it in March of this yearand it is currently running Win 8.1 OS with updates applied.
The problem/symptoms are this: - The WiFi connection she uses both at home and school is dropping after about 5 mins after connection. It is happening with different WiFi connections both secure and open requiring login (eg BT WiFi hot spots).
Steps/action taken so far:- Removed known networks and re-joined Performed IPCONFIG /flush on device Provided static IP address to WiFi at home, different to the one supplied by the router but in the same range.
I reinstalled Vista 64-bit Business on my laptop. And I've installed all of the drivers which are working, but my wifi drops out every 20-30 minutes. I've done some research and found this isn't uncommon...
so I installed the lastest Intel drivers, disabled all of the power saving features on my wifi card/DCP.
But, it still disconnects! What the heck!? I might have had this same issue in Windows 7, but I can't really remember. All I know is that when I tried to back it up using WHS, it would always fail.
I am having problems with my Wifi on my HP Pavilion Notebook 15 (Product number: G2H02PA#ACJ)I Have Windows 8.1 and as well as Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter.My Wifi Connection Is Showing LIMITED Connectivity. I have already complained about my problem on HP Phone Support. But i did not get any solution for my problem. Technician has re-installed wifi driver and Bios but did not get any solution. Customer Support has sent me some links for driver update but did not got any solution again.I've tried installing various versions of Ralink WLAN Adapter Drivers!. Still no success!I am writing this post from my other laptop as my wifi router is working properly on other devices!
The Wifi on this laptop keeps either dropping connection, or changing to a "limited" network. Sometimes it works fine, but more often than not it drops out. All other wifi enabled devices in my house work fine, so I know it's not the internet. I've also tested on two other networks where the same dropping out occurs.

I have been having some issues with the WiFi lately. Whenever i turn on the laptop, the internet conection is limited. i have to run the Windows troubleshooting every time i turn on my laptop to fix this.
I updated the Wifi drivers through Windows Update but the problem persist. What can i do to fix this?
I have a HP Pavilion dv6t-6000 CTO Quad Edition laptop and currently the WLAN network card does not support dual band connection via WiFi. I wish to upgrade the WLAN card so that it can connect to the Dual band WiFi at my house.
Any whitelist of WLAN card that I can use to upgrade my laptop? Is there a list of supported WLAN adapters?
I purchased a HP Pavilion g6-2288ca notebook, product number C2N59UAR, running Windows 8. Recently I've been having issues where the wireless internet will drop without warning. I've already established that the problem is not with my router or ISP, so I can only assume that there is an issue with my wireless adapter, either hardware- or software-related. I can usually connect to my home internet with no problems. However, as I've stated, the internet has been dropping unexpectedly on my computer when it can be demonstrated to be working fine on other computers and internet-connected devices in my home. Now, the thing is, running the troubleshooter and having it reset my wireless adapter usually does the trick. Unfortunately, it's often a temporary solution, as the connection will usually drop right back out after a few minutes. I've attempted to manually update my drivers, but that seems to have been fruitless. Also, the rate at which it drops seems completely random. Sometimes I'll reset my adapter and it'll work for the next six hours, and sometimes I'll reset it and it'll drop within thirty seconds.
I have an hp envy m6 laptop. I can not get it to connect to my wifi connection the modem/router are in the same room as the laptop but yet no connection I called Twc (ISP) and no problem on their end.&l;The funny thing is all my other devices (ps3,4,iPhone iPod you name it it picks up the connection) when I use an Ethernet Cable with my laptop but I obviously got to stay In one spotAlso before I forget all all hp/ windows updates have been done so it is current
I recently purchased a PC Hp Envy 17 j106sf and the wifi connection does not work correctly.The wifi speed used to be over 20Mb/s on my old computer and is now under 2Mb/s. The Ethernet works perfectly fine. The wifi card is a Ralink RT3290 802. 11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter. How can I fix my wifi ?
I have a new HP Envy TS 17 Notebook PC, Windows 8 operating system.

I keep losing WiFi connection. And yesterday I had to do a restore as WiFi completely disappeared from my computer. It just was no longer there. If happens again do I hv to restore again? What is the reason with losing/dropping WiFi connection.
I just got a brand new HP Envy. However, i have not been able to maintain a wifi connection. Usually it will not connect to my wifi or will only connect for a few minutes and then say 'limited' and then not connect at all. I did the full windows updates for the computer. I updated the drivers for the wifi adapter. I updated the firmware to my router. I also uninstalled norton. None of these have worked, still will not connect or will connect and drop within a few minutes. My system information is as follows:
My wifi router information is: Netgear N150 model WPN824N Channel is set to auto Mode: up to 150 MB per Second Security: WPA2/PSK [AES]
I have two ipads, two iphones, an xbox, a windows phone, two toshiba laptops, and one hp pavillion DM3 that are able to connect and maintain wifi connection with no problem (not all connected at the some time necessarily-it is not an overloading problem). The network is running fine, i just cannot figure out what the problem is with this HP Envy.
I have an HP Envy 17-j053ea Notebook running Windows 8.1 64bit. It has an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 network adapter. I am guessing from other posts that this adapter can't handle Windows 8.1 which is why I am continuously losing my wifi connection (other devices not running Windows 8.1 are fine). Is there an update or another driver? installing it and making it work on my notebook?
I recently bought a new HP Pavilion 15 PC , and the first weeks the wireless connection was working until a couple of days ago when it just shows an X on the wireless connection show that I'm not connected . I checked the University wifi which was working well for everyone else .
I have a new HP Pavilion 23 Desktop, running windows 8.1. I want to make a recovery set of DVD's, and the instructions tell me to "TURN OFF THE WIRELESS CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET". How do I do this without turning off the wireless router used by other PC's in my house ?
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 just received a dual band Time Warner Cable router that I want to wirelessly connect with my HP Pavilion dv6t-6c00 CTO Quad Edition Entertainment Notebook PC that I had for 2 and a half years now. The laptop has no trouble seeing and connecting to the 2.4 Ghz band, but does not even see 5Ghz. I tried playing around with the router settings, but had no luck this far. I believe that it should be able to see it, but I'm not 100% sure. Whether I need to update my drivers or anything for it to be able to connect to 5G? Or perhaps purchase a new network card or adapter? Or am I out of luck connecting it to 5G?
I live at a Loft where everyone tenant has their own ATT 2wire modem. Periodically, the connection will drop and sometimes, it won't connect back. The 2wire modem at my loft WAS WPA protected and I've read that if you change it to WEP, it would solve the problem. I thought this was legitimate as my 2wire modem back home is WEP protected and my connection never dropped back at home.
So I changed it to WEP here at the Lofts and for about a day, there was no dropped connections. Now, the dropping is back even on WEP.
When I have installed Windows 8.1 (64 bits) on my notebook a Pavilion G7 2272ED my drivers of Ethernet and WIFI are correct working but I cannot connect with internet with WIFA as well with Ethernet. I've must go back to windows 8 (64 bits) and everything works correctly.
