HP TouchSmart Tablet: unable to connect to wifi when away from home

Just bought a HP TouchSmart laptop to use when away from home. I just took in Santa Fe and could not get a wifi connection. I could get one on my smartphone, but not the laptop. Rookie here... Please dumb down of recommendations!

Just to remind you, I'm not computer savy. I always thought that data on my phone meant that I was hooked up to wifi. I have to pay for some sort of service to use my laptop other than at home? I have wifi at home. Thank you!

None of the cell if the installer can use wifi connections or a cell phone. Mobile home mine is configured to use my wifi and when I'm out of reach it switches to the use of the cell phone Tower. It's for the smart phone not your regular clamshell phone types. So the best test is to take your laptop and go to a public wifi and see if you can connect to the wifi and use which would be another way to diagnosis if the problem is the Wi - Fi connection or something else.

  • Apple TV 4 is not connect to wifi when return from sleep mode

    When I turn on my Apple TV 4 is not to connect to any wifi NET. If I search for it, it does not appear. However if I take the Apple TV, it is already connected. It's a little bother doing this several times...

    I'm afraid that there are already several discussions on this problem. Search for 'sleep' and 'network' or 'WiFi '. But it doesn't seem to be a solution. It seems to have started with tvOS 9.2, which I assume you have. And it affects all ATV 4, so it's something to do with your ATV settings or the configuration of the network, but I don't know what it is. Please report it to Apple to the https://www.apple.com/feedback/appletv.html . We hope it will be fixed with an update tvOS.

  • HP Envy Tablet - cannot connect when away from home

    With Windows 8.1 now, I had to put my login compressed to use MS my account login & password. Works fine at home with wifi BUT when off site and no wifi, I get the message mentioned by a few others "... not ... ne pas connecte connected to the internet, use the previous password...". "or similar. However, the previous password connect in both. Please can you help me?

    Thank you.

    Hello CoconutNZ,

    When you say you "had to put my login compressed to use my MS account login & password", was it necessary for work or do you only do this because you didn't know how to create a Local (not MS sign-in required) account?

    Would be using an account Local rather adapted to your needs?

    I can only think of a couple of things to try.

    1. change your connect you to use a PIN instead of a password help?

    The user account - create a PIN in Windows 8

    2. If this does not work, switch to a Local account.

    How to move your existing Windows 8.1 log-in to a local account - CNET

    Or you can also create a new Local account and move your files from the old account on. Then delete the old account.

    Create a user account - Windows help

    Does that help? Otherwise, I wouldn't know how to fix the broken MS connection problem.

  • HP 15-ac152sa laptop: wifi tab disappears from the network settings menu. Unable to connect to wifi

    I bought a new laptop. I connected to the WiFi network with no problems the first time. I have downloaded Microsoft office 2016 (home and student). The next time I turned on the laptop, the icon WiFi in the corner of the screen says "no connection available.

    On the tab "network and internet". There is no tab for WiFi. Initially, I managed to fix it by clicking on the 'network card', 'properties' and on the 'power management' tab, I unchecked the box indicating "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. This fixed the problem... until the next time I turned on the laptop. It's the same thing and I am unable to connect to internet via WiFi.

    The single adapter in the list here is "Realtek PCI-e FE family controller #2". Still unable to connect to WiFi... Still no WiFi tab under settings "network and internet". Help, please!

    So, the problem was finally solved (fingers crossed!).

    Yes, the Internet access worked perfectly every time when it is connected through the Ethernet cable. Ultimately I phoned the helpline. They checked for the new driver updates (these have been already updated), restored the BIOS remotely and then restored the device to the factory settings. Start of the fault still took place intermittently. This indicates a hardware problem, and the unit was sent for repair.

    The idea was that when the WiFi did not work, the WiFi card wasn't physically visiable in the list of available adapters, nor has the Bluetooth adapter. Apparently in this device, the Bluetooth and WiFi functions are on the same network adapter and apparently those elements should not disappear from the list of available adapters. So the fact that they disappeared together intermittently indicated a hardware problem with the card.

    Now that I got my laptop back and I think that the WiFicard has been replaced. Hoping all is well now and I hope this post helps someone else.

    Thanks hp for fast and wonderful customer service.


  • HP Pavilion Touchsmart 11 ED09AU - unable to connect to wifi

    Hello! I had problems with this laptop. I bought last month. After using it for a week, I noticed that it is not automatically connect to wifi, and sometimes it takes a little longer (probably an hour) so that it connects successfully to a wifi. And if ever he should be connected, internet access said "limited." I brought to a service center, they changed the wifi card, and then I guess that after using it for more than a week, the same problem occurred. This is a big drawback for me I hope that someone can help me, and I just want to know if anyone had experienced the same problem. Thank you very much!

    Hello Jabb050914,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I understand that you are having problems with wireless connectivity. Can you please tell me the name of your new wireless card? You should be able to find this in the device under network adapters Manager. Also, can you me if other devices are wireless, or if this PC works with a wired connection to the router or modem?

    Here are a few things to try in waiting for your response:

    Powercycle the network:
    1. turn off your laptop.
    2. unplug the power to your router.
    3. disconnect the power to your modem.
    4. wait at least 45 seconds.
    5 reconnect the modem and wait for it to come back online.
    6 plug in the router and wait for it to come back online.
    7. turn on your laptop and test your connection.

    Reset the TCP/IP settings on your PC:
    1. go to your start screen and type CMD.
    2. right-click on the command prompt icon and select run as administrator at the bottom of your screen.
    3. in the window that opens type "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" without the quotes and press ENTER.
    4 restart your PC and test.

    It can also help to reset the winsock catalog:
    1. go to your start screen and type CMD.
    2. right-click on the command prompt icon and select run as administrator at the bottom of your screen.
    3. in the window that opens type "netsh winsock reset" without the quotes, and then press ENTER.
    4 restart your PC and test.

    If these steps do not resolve the problem, try this document published by Microsoft for network management issues: wired and wireless network problem.

    Hope this helps!

  • Unable to connect to WIFI after upgrade windows 8.1


    I fortunately was connection to my wifi at home last night before my HP Pavilion notebook updated to windows 8.1 g7. Now, I can only connect via ethernet cable.

    I called Microsoft Support and I was told that my wifi driver was outdated and must be reinstalled. I had a look at downloads available for the network drivers, but I'm not sure how to establish that that I need... There are 4 options.

    In the Device Manager > network adapters, it there was only one pilot who needed according to this update. The Realtek PCle FE Family controller. When I checked the updates here is said that it was updated successfully, but I am STILL unable to connect to the internet.

    Microsoft say it is a problem of HP, not them. Help, please.

    Thank you


    My suggestion: using Device Manager to uninstall the Wireless driver and reboot the machine. Machine should say new hardware installed and find the good jerking for you OR you can download driver Realtek (wireless) from the above link and reinstall it.

    Kind regards.

  • Unable to connect to Wifi. No guest password when connecting

    Original title: no guest LAN password for my home network wifi unable to connect wireless, why am I not even invited to enter my password?

    I am trying to connect my two PCs to my wifi at home.  It has a requirement for password and my Apple devices can connect properly. I just don't get no guest password LAN and it fails to connect. PCs are fairly new and since the change of the password today, they have bee unable to connect.


    Please check the IP addresses defined on each of the computers.

    -Open the command prompt amd type ipconfig/all and press ENTER.

    Also try to ping the router from the computer and check if there is a good connection.

    - Ping (if is defined as the IP address of the router).

    If computers have starting with 169.xxx.xxx.xxx IP addresses then you will not be able to connect to the router wireless and the Internet. This address is called APIPA.

    You will have to perhaps release IP addresses and make sure.

    -In the command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER.



    ipconfig / renew

    Please let us know the IP addresses defined on each computer and also the IP address it of the router.

    My laptop was connected to wifi for over a year.
    A few days ago, he was unable to do so. It identifies the wifi connection and the signal strength is called 'excellent '.
    Other devices at home can connect WiFi as usual.
    So the problem some puts in my laptop. I tried troubleshooting. Nothing works.
    Some registry setting would cause?

    Some help would be really appreciated.


    Hi arcprasad,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Communities. The problem description, I understand that you are not able to connect to the WiFi network. Provide the following information for the better understanding of the issue:

    ·         Did you do changes on the computer before the show?

    ·         You get the error message?

    ·         You use a third-party security software?

    ·         Have what troubleshooting measures you tried?

    Follow these methods.

    Method 1: Temporarily disable the security software .

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do not disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time that your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Method 2: Follow these steps:

    Step 1: Start the computer in safe mode with network and check if the problem persists.

    Startup options (including safe mode)

    Step 2: If the problem does not persist in safe mode with networking, perform a clean boot to see if there is a software conflict as the clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: After completing the steps in the clean boot troubleshooting, follow step 7 the link to start the computer to a Normal startupmode.

    Method 3: Follow the steps in the article.

  • Firewall cannot power on. Unable to connect to WiFi.

    I have a Samsung PC with Windows 7 Home Premium. I have several problems with it. First of all, I have constantly to the little flag in the bottom right of my screen telling me that there are 5 questions with my PC, but above all it tells me that my firewall is disabled. Obviously, I tried turning on, but after asking me only one to turn on (AVG, windows,...) and then ask the admin. permission, nothing happens. The little note in the corner is still there, and nothing has changed.

    Second thing is, I can't connect to my WIFI at home with my laptop. I have 3 roommates, and they're all perfectly fine internet. When I try to connect, it tells me that it is connect but with no access to the internet and then a small window appears in the lower right corner, say that there might be additional information needed. After trying just about everything, the only 'useful' thing, I found was troubleshoot tells me there could be a problem with my driver for wireless network connectivity. The adapter is an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. When I try to disable and re-enable the driver, nothing happens, and I don't really want to uninstall and re install since I think that might just make things worse.
    Can anyone help?

    Hi Zornig,

    Thanks for posting on this forum. If I understand correctly, you are facing 2 problems on your computer. First of all, you are unable to turn on the firewall. Second, you can not connect to WiFi with your laptop. Hope I understood the issues.

    Zornig, if you have more than one anti-virus or firewall applications on the computer, this problem may occur. It is recommended that you have only installed on the computer so try to uninstall one of them and check.

    Due to WiFi, try the methods provided.

    Method 1:

    Run the network troubleshooter, and check. Check out the link and follow the steps.

    Network convenience stores


    You can use logs of the events of the resolution of network problems and try to solve the problem. Check out the link.

    Use Network Troubleshooter event logs to solve network problems
