Hi,My brand new Yoga 720-15 IKB doesn't connect to my workplace wifi network which is a Mikrotik network. It does though connect to my home network or a mobile hotspot and works fine with them. I have installed all Windows 10 updates and Lenovo Companion updates. I have manually updated wifi card driver, I have also tried deleting network card and installing it again - but no success. Still doesn't connect to this one particular network in my workplace.To make it stranger my coworker has the same brand new Yoga 720, the only difference is that mine Yoga is grey and his is platinium color. We discovered also that two, supposedly the same computers  have different network cards (he has Intel, I have Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A. This is a bit weird).I have also found out his Yoga connects easily to VPN at our workplace, my doesn't.Any ideas how to solve it? EDIT: my current network card driver is

I'm on windows 8.1 and my wifi adapter is tp link.

Hi @diru, Welcome to the HP Forums! I read about your Wifi behaving strangely on your HP 15-d005tu Notebook. Here is a link that shows you how to enable away mode. It enables your computer to continue performing tasks, such as recording television programs or sharing video and music, even if you walk away from the computer. This might help your issue. Please get back to me how this goes. To show that you like, or are thankful of my post, kindly click the Thumbs up below. Thanks.

I am ready to give up on HP AND Windows 7.  My laptop worked fine until a week ago - did all - reset router, plugged HP 15 laptop into router....wireless has stopped working - low signal sometimes if I spend hours removing and reinstalling, etc.
Reinstalled network adapter - have Kaspersky 2017 - tried turning it off.  Using Windows Firewall - tried turning off.
Keeps saying network adapter has invalid IP config.  Laptop of my husband next to mine is working fine!  Same settings.
Have done EVERYTHING.....running HP Network Diagnostics....same errors - problem w/wireless adapter or access point and "wireless connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration.
Previously I used to see my neighbors wifi network names in the bar at the bottom where the wireless strength shows.  Now only see my computer/homegroup (which I also deleted and reset umpteen times)....is this a clue?

My fully updated Windows 8.1 notebook suddenly will not show any wifi connections when I click on the icon in the system tray (it shows "No Connections are Available", although it is connected, and I can surf and browse normally).

To connect to a new network, I have to manually enter the details of the network, and then it connects. This is something new, since previously it would show all the available networks, and allow me to make a selection (which is normal). What setting could have flipped do enable the above situation?


A:Wifi suddenly doesn't show available network connections

This is a 1.5 TB USB 2.0 external HDD. When I connect the drive, it does not show up in Windows Explorer. However I DO see it in Disk Management as

Unfortunately, the only action available is Delete Volume. I would like to assign a drive letter, reformat, partition, etc.

FYI this drive was formatted as ext4 on a linux computer. Now I want to bring it over to Windows, wipe it clean, and use it for something else.

Any suggestions?

A:HDD doesn't show up in Windows Explorer when I connect it

If the drive has been on a Linux PC, I'd probably wipe the disk completely to get any Linux code off of it.

I'm not sure if "delete volume" would do that. I'd likely use Diskpart's "clean" command in Windows or a third party application to wipe it. Then make a new partition and format. If that fails, try a "clean all".

I have a HP Notebook 15. I restarted my laptop this morning and when it came back on, all options for connecting to the internet via WiFi were gone. I am able to connect to the internet via ethernet cable, and everything works this way.There are no options whatsoever to connect to WiFi or reset the connection or anything, however the WiFi itself is working because other devices in the house are connected to it. I followed a HP technical support online page, which provided step-by-step instructions of various ways to reconnect to WiFi but nothing worked. I tried restarting the computer, updating the driver software, making sure it wasn't in airplane mode, and troubleshooting. Nothing worked. What should I try next?

I have been relatively happy with my Yoga 900, but I have run into an odd situation and would appreciate any help.Specifically, my device functions well with my home router, but if I move to an area of the house where the WiFi signal is weak, and I get disconnected from the router, I seem to be unable to re-connect to the router when I then move back to an area of the house with a strong signal.I tried turning off the WiFi and turning it back on, but it still will not connect.It seems the only way I can get back online is to reboot.Is there a solution to this?For what it's worth, I do have the default driver installed (Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 8260), and saw a post somewhere suggesting going to the Intel site for their driver.I am not someone who enjoys tweaking settings, so hopefully there is a simple step I am missing.Thanks so much to anyone who has time and willingness to offer a suggestion.

LAN port doesn't connect to WiFi extender?
Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit
Supermicro X8DTU-F with Intel 82576 port
Cable modem
Wireless router NETGEAR WNDR4300
Extender NETGEAR WN2500RP

I connect wirelessly (WiFi) to the router. I can use a USB WiFi adapter but it's slow. Using the extender is twice as fast. So I'm connected via an ethernet cable from my computer's LAN port to the extender. The extender uses the 5 GHz channel to the wireless
router. I disable the extender as a WiFi access point, since I'm only connecting through the LAN port.

Problem is... Apparently some configuration is arbitrarily lost or takes time to rebuild after restarting my PC or after some other event. My guess is that the LAN port has trouble reconnecting to the extender. Or maybe the extender has to reconnect with the
router after an extended period of no traffic? 

I tried updating the motherboard's LAN driver, but seems it's the most current version. I leave the extender on and it still happens. 

I could use some leads.

I have a older windows 7 x64 home premium pc, I have had no problems with the pc since I bought it in 2009. I use ccleaner and windows security but I am having connection issues. I have been trying for weeks different ways to repair it but have gave up and hope you good people can help me out.

I hope I have the correct forum I read in another that if I was having internet connection problems it would most likely be a virus/malware issue.

I have scanned my pc with advast and cleaned all I can from it only trojan it found was 1 named JS:Hideme-J I have tried all the netsh commands, checked options for the internet and even went as far to buy another Ethernet card which is giving me the same problems. And now when I open my pc from a restart my network and sharing center doesn't even show it is on and my internet connection looks as if it has been deleted all together and I cant even see my Ethernet cards.

I really cant tell if this is a virus situation or a hardware issue and need some guidance on this. When I trouble shoot the cards they both read in working order and I always have just 1 running while the other is disabled trying to figure out what is going on. Any help even help is saying I may need a new pc is appreciated so I can just take this thing out back and get rid of it.

So my ipod touch does not want to connect to any wifi network that requires a logon page, as in an html web page where you are required to enter details to access a wifi hotspot.

I have one of these at work which I can access for free and it was working fine up until a week ago. Now it wont connect to any internet that requires an html logon page, not just the one at my work.

I should say that it does actually connect to the network it just wont log on to the login page, therefore the ipod assumes that it does not connect to the internet.

It still connects to my home network just fine.

Any ideas?

Hi all,

After removing it, I have been unable to connect to any wireless networks, I've tried deleting the profile and creating a new one, reinstalling the driver, updating the driver, nothing seems to work. I really really do not want to do a reinstall, and I was hoping you guys could help me get my wireless back up and running.

Ok so I am working at a friend's house and I have run into a debacle. He needs his wireless adapter to be in a new room with better reception for the house. There are two Wall ports let's say port A and port B. He used to be in port A but wants to move to Port B. When hard connected to either port the internet works fine as well as generates the same IP, DNS, and gateway settings. When I connect Wireless however only port A connects to the internet. Port B will not connect to the internet even though the IP, DNS, and gateway are still the same when I check the wireless ipconfig. Any ideas. I have tried renewing, refreshing, flushing dns cache, making sure his ipv4 is automatic.

Hi there,

My neighbour has a problem which I've tried to help with, but have to say am stumped....

He is running a cable modem into a wireless router (Belkin), but since changing ink cartridges on the printer (maybe a coincidence) has lost his internet connection.

The PC (desktop running Xp) connects to the network, but there is no internet connection. I've been there with my laptop and all is well.

It also seems that every time you try to do something with network connections etc, the PC freezes the window/app and you have to reboot/log off and on.

I've never seen this before, but am thiniking pehaps the network card is done for.

Any help/advice would be appreciated.


A:Unable to connect to Net via WiFi

Can't think of any reason changing the ink cartridges should effect the internet connection.

If I understand the problem:

Cable Modem --------> Belkin Router ---------> Desktop
No internet connection for the desktop.

Are you sure the Desktop is connecting to the Belkin? Can he access the Belkin's user interface from the desktop? If he can acccess the Belkin, then the card and cable is probably OK.

Did he try connecting directly to the cable modem to see if that works?

If you connected wireless, try connecting your laptop by the same ethernet cable to see if that works?

Could you supply the followong information for the desktop?

Hi, Until yesterday, my laptop's wifi was working fine. But today when I fired it up, the laptop could't detect my home Wifi network, but detecting my neighbour's nteworks. I rebooted it a couple of times, but of no help. So, I performed a system restore. After the System Restore my PC's Wifi is detecting my home netwrok, but when I try connecting it by entering the password, it says, "Unable to connect to the netwrok". I've tested my home wifi router for any problems, and there isn't any. My phone is detecting and connecting to my home netwrok just fine. Now I have to connect my PC to my mobile's hotspot to do work everytime. This is really frustrating. Please help.Thanks.

I am unable to connect to wifi with this laptop. The other laptop and 2 iphones  and a tablet will connect to the wifi. It is with AT&T. I know it must have something to do with a setting, but do not have a clue to what. I have tried all I know, but that is very limited. Any suggestions will be helpful!

(My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium)I have had this laptop since 2011 and somewhere in 2012 I think I somehow deleted the ralink WiFi adapter.I haven't been able to use WiFi since then.I got on the HP Recovery Manager and reinstalled the drivers and it alerted me that Ralink 802.11 b/g/n WiFi Adapter was unable to reinstall.So I looked it up and downloaded it on this website and it saved in a folder called c:\SWSetup\SP56942But after that nothing happens.Can anyone help me out?

A:Unable to connect to WiFi?

Hi: If your notebook is missing the wireless card driver, there should be a device listed in the device manager under an Other Devices category named Network Controller. Please post the hardware ID for the network controller device so I can figure out what driver it needs. To find the hardware ID, go to the device manager and click on the Network Controller device. Then click on the Details tab at the top of the Network Controller window. Now you will see a Property drop down list and it will be set to Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.
