So I bought a new HP Pavillion laptop with Vista on it for my daughter to take to college.
It works well, except for wireless connectivity, which keeps dropping, then you have to go thru all kinds of monkey motions with the networking center to get it reconnected.
Network works when plugged into eithernet. Problem is with wireless.
I have 6 wired and 4 wireless computers connecting to the net though the same wireless router with no problem.
I talked to HP & they said they'd get back to me (but haven't yet..)
Anyone know if this is a widespread problem with HPs or Vista ? Or just this particular computer ?
I had problems with my Vista desktop and wireless to the point I turned it off and ran the 30 foot cat5 instead. It would usually be fine for internet browsing but downloading would be hit or miss. I also had problems trying to get WPA or WPA2 to work at all. WEP worked fine.
