HP Pavilion Laptop, I have Window's Vista.

My Computer keeps acting up, I go online and 5 minutes later it kicks me offline and Disables me. Now My switch is one (it's blue)

My uncle tried to fix it because it kept going to Orange and it wouldn't allow me to be online.

He went to "Recoverly Manger" and downloaded the LAN...from it's former state.

Now I come back from his house and I go online, it lets me on my sites then 5 minutes later it kicked me off

"Foxfire is offline, would you like to put this page on Offline mode" etc

So I go to:

- Device Manger

- Network Adapters

I see three things (one keeps disappearing)

- Broadcom802.11b/g.Wlan (keeps disappearing)
-Microsoft ISATAP Adapter ( it has a "!" sign on it)
-NVDIA Nforce 10/100 mbps.ethernet

I have no idea what's wrong...can someone please help me?

 

Someone told me "Your problem may be due to a timer on your router setup. You can go into the router's program and fix it to where it hasn't got a timer on it"
 
But where can I find this "timer" how to do it...she didn't explain much other then that so now I'm highly confused!

my father's internet connect is saved on my laptop and always has...

so i'm still stuck without a paddle!

Can you tell me step by step how to do it?

One more thing...it says that the drivers are working...so I dont think it's the drivers!

Re: LAN wireless Laptop keeps disabling?

I've had the exact same issue with my HP dv9700t CTO lappy. What you can try to do (this worked for me) is hardwire your laptop directly to your modem/router and download the latest driver for you wireless NIC and then uninstall the HP wireless assistant. Your PC will run fine, if not better with this uninstalled. Restart your computer. Install that driver.

No luck? There is actually a known issue with the HP Pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario V3000/V6000 series notebook PCs regarding the wireless adapter not being detected. You can go here to see if your model is in the list of lappy's covered under their limited warranty service.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c01087277&dlc=en.

You'll be searching for your lappy by your serial number and product number. You can find this under your laptop OR you can just be lazy and go here. http://h50203.www5.hp.com/HPISWeb/customer/SelfHelp.aspx?region=NA&country=US&Acheck=normal.
This will scan your PC and tell you what your serial # and P/N is if you have any doubts.

You can blame nVidia for making another crappy gpu which overheated your motherboard and killed your wireless.

Re: LAN wireless Laptop keeps disabling?

YOU KNOW WHAT....I've looked into it.. There is two things I found

On Mircrosoft ISATAP Adapter - there is a (!) and I went to Properties... it says CODE 31. Then I went to Broadcom802 and it has the same (!), went to Properties...it says CODE 10

Can this be the problem? what to do?

Re: LAN wireless Laptop keeps disabling?

Check through THIS POST at microsoft about what CODE 10 means.. are you sure that driver you installed is for your specific hardware?
How old is this laptop? are you entitled to NO support from the manufacture? how about the manufacture's support forums?

Re: LAN wireless Laptop keeps disabling?

I've been trying so hard to solve my own problem, it seems like nothing I'm doing is even working. So here is what I've done...I'm out of Ideas...

Reinstalled HP Internet Wireless Driver - Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows Vista - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-66350-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=1842189

Updated/Reinstall BIOS - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01208716&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1842189

Recovery Manger - I tried to go back to my old computer's drivers

Went to: Control Panel/Network connections - Select Wireless Network connect: Broadcom and under it it says Disable. I clicked on Enable and yet it does nothing at all. It takes me to the "Are you sure you want to-" and then I click yes...then it doesn't do anything.

I've asked here, on yahoo answers....and I'm not getting anywhere. I've tried what some of you has told me to do...I'm confused and I want to cry. There are no computer places out here...no bestbuy or anything like that.

here is a picture. <a href="http://s625.photobucket.com/albums/tt339/ureverydaygoddess/?action=view&current=enab.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt339/ureverydaygoddess/enab.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

 

if you can't see the picture then: http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt339/ureverydaygoddess/enab.jpg

 -rubs eyes- I have no clue what else to do. I know it can't be the internet company because we have people around us that has internet and my computer isn't even reading their wireless connection.  Three days ago I was able to be online for 2 hours...I was so happy that I "fixed" it, but then it did this whole thing again and hasn't let me online since. then I think maybe it's because when I go to the HP.com...They give you a list of laptop models...maybe I'm putting on the wrong one? I have a  HP Pavilion dv9000 however it doesn't say CTO...OR anything... I always select CTO....because there is no other numbers or anything after it says the model name...I do not know. out of ideas.

Re: LAN wireless Laptop keeps disabling?

there is the possibility that it's just plain broke. At some point, it may be time for professional help.

Re: LAN wireless Laptop keeps disabling?

I dont understand how you are even connecting. Is it wireless, ethernet, direct to dsl, etc? If its wireless, what router are you using?

Sorry just read the title of the post and i see its a wireless LAN. If thats the case and youre really conencted to a LAN then youd need to contact your network administrator.

Re: LAN wireless Laptop keeps disabling?

I am using my father's computer and his AT&T Router...I was able to connect to it before all the time...then when I went back to chicago, no matter where I was at...neither Dunking Donuts, A friend's house or back to my father's house...it would not let me connect and it keeps saying "Disable"

Like last night I decided to mess with it again...I turned it on and it said that my internet was enable.  So I got on yahoo messanger and talked for 10 mins (which was a new record since my laptop always wants to disble right away) .. I connected to someone else's wireless...it worked....then out of the blue it disabled my internet connection while i was chating.  I'm writing this from my father's desktop which of course...his internet does work.

As for my laptop...I've tried reenabling it, I've tried reinstalling the driver...

I dont know...The problem is...out where I live we live in the cornfields (i moved back to my father's from chicago) and there is no computer places to take my laptop. it's not on warrity....so this is why I'm trying so hard to look for the answer.

Re: LAN wireless Laptop keeps disabling?

Okay well my father has a 2WIRE AT&T.... so useally I connect by looking for wireless signal...I'll be in my room without connecting to any dial....I just search for my dad's wireless...and i'm on.

However even that isn't showing because my laptop says 'disable'

so when I go to "connect to" it doesn't show ANY wireless connects.

hmmm perhaps i should take some pictures maybe this will help you understand it better because I don't think I'm explaining this well.

(10 mins later)

 

Okay now i think I figured out what MIGHT be the problem but I'm still not sure...I need a second opinion.

I lasted online for a few mins before getting 'disabled'

 

here is from start (when i was able to go online...and when it went all wrong lol)
