My wireless recently went out on an HP DV series laptop that I purchased about a year ago. I guess this is a common problem the more I read about it. I bought a USB antenna to bypass the problem. The install went fine but it shows a yellow triangle with an Exclamation Point in it in between the router and the computer. How do I get that removed. I am guessing that's the problem. Thanks for the help!!!

from my knowledge it means limited or no connectivity, try getting closer to the router and try repairing the network connection.

Check if you have Windows Firewall enabled.
Had similar problem. Switching it off solved it.
Are you using dhcp? Because if not it might be IP conflict.
Somebody on the network has the IP address you're trying to connect with.

My System


Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

What country are you located in.
Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Make and model of your computer.
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP1-SP2, Vista, etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.




Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?

If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?




On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands:

PING 216.109.112.135

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL


Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
