Ok so i have a shot in the dark question, I am not sure on what parts are avalable for this laptop. I just picked this up on a trade and so far has been a pretty decent little machine. It has stock 2.4ghz wifi, which i know is pretty standard. My question is, is there a different internal wifi card i can replace the stock on with that will give me access to both 2.4 ghz and 5.0 ghz. I have been considering going the usb adapter route for both wifi bands but would like to keep some usb ports avalable without needing to get a small hub. Any info would be Appreciated! Thanks

Hi: Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03593667 Unfortunately the 3 supported wireless cards listed in chapter 3 are all single band cards. Back when your notebook was produced, HP had a BIOS whitelist which prevents any other wlan card from working other than the ones listed in the service manual.

Hello,

I have recently bought a new pci wifi lan card (Ralink rt61 turbo) and have plugged in and installed drivers. Initially the drivers the company I bought it from told me to install didn't work, but after some googling found the correct drivers and downloaded from Ralinks website. However these didn't work either.

When using the Ralink wireless utility it says that the card is disconnected, however in device manage it is both connect and the correct drivers installed and everything is perfectly fine.

I ignored the wireless utility and hoped that windows 7 would still be able to use the wireless card as past experiences have shown to be true. This case however I get nothing. Windows 7 says that the wireless card is experiencing problems, it doesn't show any of the routers that should be shown.

I have been looking around a lot and there have been several drivers that should have worked and they haven't.

I would have thought that the antenna is broken or the card doesn't work however when I use it with ubuntu instead of windows 7 it works perfectly fine without any hassle, so the card is definitely working.

Any advice that anyone can give on how to resolve this would be very welcome.

Thanks

Hey guys,

So, what i'm trying to do is create a wifi hotspot using my computer. In other words, turning my computer into a router. I'm wanting to do this so i can use my ipod at home instead of only when i'm around other wifi hotspots.

My computer is running off of a wired router, so that i can play online on my PS3 as well. I was told wifi doesn't work well with Ps3's normally so i just bought a wired router. So, the mainline internet cord is plugged into a wired router and then another line runs into my computer.

For some reason, after i make an adhoc connection, the computer is not sending the required information to the iPod so that it connects to the internet.

I've tried entering in the information into the Static tab in my ipod as well, and still only get Local Connection instead of Local and Internet.

This is what my connection looks like through the router using ipconfig /all:

A:Creating Wifi hotspot with built-in computer wifi card.

Hi Cromsy,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as that. You are connected to the router fine with your computer, but that tells us nothing about the ipod because wireless is off (but that's not the whole story either - you need something extra to do what you want). The following article should tell you what you need and how to do it: How to Connect iPod Touch to Windows 7 Ad-hoc Wireless Network. Although it says Windows 7, there are procedures for Vista as well (and the software will work with Vista).

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

This is my first time posting so i hope its in the right place. Here it goes:

I have just replaced my WiFi card from (BCM943228HMB) to BCM94352HMB. Before replacing my WiFi card i done the following:

1. Made computer boot in safe mode with networking.

After that i replaced the card, then booted into windows 10 (safe mode with networking) and checked device manager. Everything was OK (See attached picture). I then tried to turn on WiFi, but it does not turn on. Any help is appreciated.

Hahaahahaha don't look at the other tab

A:WiFi not working after replacing WiFi card [BCM94352HMB]

Why are you booting into safe mode? I would connect a network cable to the wired network port, if possible for you. In regular windows, not safe mode, right click on the 802.11ac network controller and uninstall. Right click on the top device manager entry for the computer itself and select scan for new hardware.

Hi all,

I looked online and I'm still a bit confused whether I should get dual or single band wifi for a laptop that I would like to purchase. Can someone explain to offer a suggestion as to which one is best?

Thank you in advance.
 

A:dual band wifi card vs single band wifi card

I should get dual or single band wifi for a laptop that I would like to purchaseClick to expand...

do you mean a router
or as part of the laptop spec ?

what router do you have and does it work in dual band simultaneously

the advantage of the 5ghz signal is if you are in a crowded 2.4ghz environment then 5ghz helps avoid interference - also the coverage is wider - although the 5ghz router i have linksys - does not seem to be

if your current router only works in 2.4ghz , then no advantage in the short term

some routers are advertised as dual band - but you have to choose between 2.4 or 5 ghz and so ALL devices will need to support 5ghz

A:Hp Pavilion dv2000 wifi

Hi: That is a somewhat common issue with the dv2000/dv600 and dv9000 model series. The motherboard overheats and cuts off power to the mini-PCIe slot that powers your wireless card, or the heat generated by the motherboard burns out the wireless card's network chip. The least costly solution that is guaranteed to work (as long as your USB ports work), is to purchase an external usb wireless adapter. You can try another wireless card by removing yours, getting the part number from it and going on eBay and finding a cheap but tested and working replacement by doing your search by the part number. You should be able to get a used wireless card for $10 or less. However, you need to be prepared to accept the worst...that it is a bad motherboard. Paul

Each time, it will only stay connected for just a few minutes. I don't know what the problem is. It only started doing this 2 days ago, it has always worked before, connect automatically and stay connected while I was using the laptop, now I have this problem where it will only connect when I turn on the laptop and just disconnect after a few minutes.

My Pavilion keeps loosing wifi connection, everytime I think I have resolved the issue, it will drop the wifi. The last time was Saturday and I had to do a system restore and then udate it to get it to connect. It seemed to work until this morning, I use this in my store and my router is located in my office so got it to connect when I brought it into the office. I checked to see if an update might have tried to download and couldn't , but it said update were up to date. I flushed the dns and reset my IP, now cannot connect. My question is, is this a computer problem? a HP problem? or Router problem. What's the deal???

I have never connected to the Internet on this computer. I had downloaded a 2 second animation video from Tumblr on another computer, put it on a flashdrive, and put it on the laptop.  When I click on the Tumbler video, although I am in User/Pictures, the end of the file says Internet Explorer and it seems like it may be connecting to the Internet. How is this possible when I have never set this up? I have clicked off for the WLAN connectivity and the wifi light is red. Does this mean I am not on the Internet?  Could this video be running without connection even though it seems like it is? Please let me know how to permanently disable wifi access. Thank you.

Hi @HelpPlease803, Welcome to HP Forums! I have read your post and wanted to help. I understand that you want to make sure that your laptop is not connected to a wifi. If you have never connected your laptop to a wireless network before, it should not connect to a wifi automatically. If you want to disable the wifi function, right click the wifi icon on your laptop, and click on disable. Thanks for being a part of the HP community.

When I turn on my new laptop I go online via wifi and after under a couple of minutes I lose connection. It is not my router as my phone and tablet all have wifi access. Flight mode is not on. I click on wifi settings wifi is on but 'limited' connectivity.I use windows network diagnostics. It tells me to reset wifi adapter then it says the default gateway is not available.I disconnect from the wifi router but then there are no wifi options at all. Sometimes I don't even have the on off switch to turn my wifi on or off. My only option is to connect a cable to access the Internet (but I don't have a cable!)Sometimes the wifi returns after an hour or so. Sometimes I have to restart my notebook.I have been reading through the forums and can see others with a similar problem but I'm still unsure how to resolve it. My product number is P4A28EA#ABU

When the WiFi button (F12) is pressed the LED show red and a message on-screen briefly says "Flight Mode ON" and the network connection icon in the notification area shows a red X. - this is expected - however When I press F12 the on screen message does breifly display "Flight Mode OFF", but the LED stays orange and WiFi is disbaled. If I click the network icon in the notification area the panel that appears says Flight Mode OFF, WiFi (OFF). I simply cannot re-enable the WiFi with the F12 key. If I go to Computer->Properties->Device Manager, select the Wireless Adapter I can switch the WiFi back on by going to the Advanced tab and selecting Radio->Enable. If I do this the let then goes white and WiFi is OK. So what is going on - why can't I simply toggle the WiFi off and on with the F12 key. Why to I have to resort to the device manager to switch it back on again?

A:New HP Pavilion G6 - F12 switches OFF WiFi but won't switch ...

Solved my own problem - if it help others ....the WiFi Driver update dated 25/09/12 caused the problem in my case.Right click on 'Computer' select 'Advanced' and open Device manager. Locate the WiFi Adapter and choose the 'Roll back driver option' to restore the previous driver - worked for me. You think someone would test drivers better than this !!!

Hello All,

I am trying to fix my brother-in-law's laptop hp pavilion dv6, windows 7 (64-bit). He is having problems connecting to the internet through the laptop wifi. It shows all the surrounding routers including his, but won't connect either way. He has a sprint wifi card that he uses to connect with no problems. Now, if that is working, than what is causing the laptop wifi not to work? I even looked on the hp website for any answers, and this is what I have read from other people using the same model:

1) Having the laptop plugged in the ac for most of the time might cause the motherboard to overheat and cause the wifi to not function. (My brother-in-laws does kinda have it plugged in most of the time, that I have seen.)

2) Might have to download the new version of the Bios, wireless assistant, and the wireless drivers off the hp website. Install software, reboot and just incase re-install the bios and that should fix the problem.

3) The motherboard might be the problem, might have to fix or buy a new motherboard. (Heh! Ahhhhh, I hope not, it's not even 6 months old.)

Well if anybody out there have any suggestions as to how this problem can be fixed, please feel free to throw them my way.

Hi, recently bought a second hand pavilion dm 1, everything working fine - is running on windows 10. Recently moved flat (now living in Paris, laptop bought in England although I don't think this would affect my problem though I am completely computer illiterate).Trying to get on to the wifi network in the new flat and the computer just says no wifi networks found. I've tried everything simple like turning the wifi on and off both on the computer and at the box, my phone connects just fine so I know there's no issue with the actual wifi.Have tried to find a solution on here but none seem to be for windows 10, and I'm not sure what to do.Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

A:hp pavilion dv5 win. 10: wifi capabilities stuck off

Hi @DailyGrind, Welcome to HP Forums! I have read your post and wanted to help. I understand that the wireless capability cannot be turned on. There is no drivers released for Windows 10 on the HP support page of your model. It is possible that the WiFi adapter driver is not working well. Please try remove the WiFi driver from Device Manager, and click "Action" on the top of the Windows and select "Scan for Hardware Change" to reinstall the driver. Here is a document may help: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 10) Let me know if it helps. If this helps you to reach a solution, please click the "Accept as Solution" button down below in this message.

Hello guys, I want to update my computer to have a Bluetooth 4.0 connection, i've tryed some PCI-e boards but It was not compatible...Do you know any PCI-e board wifi and Bluetooth 4.0 that is compatible with Pavilion G6? Thank you

A:Wifi and Bluetooth module for Pavilion G6

Need exact model and the big question is whether it is in the "whitelist" era. Generally anything with a 4th gen Intel Core or newer is past the whitelist and you can install any wireless or wifi-bluetooth card of the same form factor as long as you have at least 2 antennae which I believe the G6 models do.
