my dell notebook that has windows 7 starter keeps losing internet connection and saying no connection available but my home computer still has the internet connection. I have a Netgear router and my home service is through comcast. Please help?
You need to check that your wireless chip is receiving on the same channel the Netgear is broadcasting on - or is set to roam and seek signals. Start by entering 192.168.1.1 in IE's address bar and going into the settings to check the broadcast channel.
Which model of HP? Somew laptops have tiny wireless switches which are sometimes easier to turn off than they are to find - others have the wireless icon on a Function key and you need that key with the Fn key to turn it on.
