I have an HP pavilion laptop that CAN connect to the internet through the Netgear WNDR3700 router while connected with the RF connector.
However, it CANNOT connect to the Internet through the wireless connection. The signal is strong as its sitting right next to it. I have a two Toshiba laptops connected to the wireless and to the Internet just fine. This HP will not connect to the Internet and I don't know why.
I put in a different hard drive from another HP Pavilion as I was testing to see if that hard drive worked and found that it did but I tried to connect to the Internet with it while it was in that laptop and that also has the same issue. Strong signal, Local access only. Could it be a bios update needed? Could it be the card itself? How can I test it?
Thanks!!! I'm losing my mind with laptops today! lol
