My wi-fi connection is not working in my laptop. I am using Windows Vista / HP Pavilion dv6000 / 32-bit operating System / processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64X2 Dual Core Processor. I have performed ipconfig /_all and I have pinged the router. I have an IP address. I get the 4 packets sent and 4 packets received. I have manually placed the ip address for the Netcard to link to the router through its properties. But nothing happens. once I change it to detect manually I can get on the internet for about 3 minutes and then the connection disappears and I am unable to log back in..but now nothing happens at all. I have two pc's on ethernet cable to the router they are fine. I also have installed and ethernet to the laptop but I still cannot get on the net. I have installed the 802.11 a/b/g/ WLAN driver for the laptop that I downloaded from HP. It doesn't even install as a driver in the network section or detects wi-fi. I am at a lost.
