Dear Experts,

I recently purchased a HP dv6 3110se laptop with Windows 7 Home Basic Operating system (64-bit).
Wifi Problem:

I can connect to the internet using the LAN without any problem. When ever I try to connect to our wifi it connects for only 3-5minutes and then a yellow mark appears on the wifi icon. I have check all the settings (ssid, security/encription settings) including password. They are all correct. Any suggestions?

Thanking you for the prompt reply.

can you go to windows updates - and check if you have any updates of drivers for your wifi card - it will be in hardware section (optional)
If not look for new driver for your wifi from wifi card vendor - not Hp one
