Networking Issues in HP EliteBook® 2730p
The HP EliteBook 2730p is a compact and reasonably thin desktop. The system could take either an ultra-low or low-voltage Intel Core2 Duo processor and up to 8GB of RAM. A network consists of two or more computers that are linked in order to exchange files or allow electronic communications. A network helps share resources, such as printers, storage devices and folders which include personal files, pictures, music, videos, etc. Many people have issues while connecting to, staying connected to or just setting up their networks. It is quite difficult to make your network functional, especially when you use unsecured connections.

Network card errors
A common issue is that your network card might not be able to connect. This might be due to damaged ports, loose cables or a faulty network card. So you need to firmly connect the cable or you could try plugging the network cable into a different port. The HP EliteBook 2730p could also support a wireless network card, so you could check the wireless network connection by right clicking ‘Wireless Network Connection’ which shows the card’s name and model number under ‘General’ tab of ‘Properties’.
While trying to access a shared folder on a remote computer, you might receive a message such as ‘This request is not accepted by the network. Try again later’ or ‘No more connections could be made at this time’. This is because the network configured allows only a certain number of connections. Sometimes you might receive a message, ‘Multiple connections to the server or shared resource are not allowed’ while trying to join a domain. You could try the command to clear all your mapped connections before joining the domain. You could also disconnect the mapped drive in Windows Explorer by right clicking the Mapped Drive and select Disconnect.
Sometimes you might be denied access to some websites on your computer. This is because of firewall blocks, wrong user rights, no server connection or entering a different workgroup. While trying to open a file from or save a file to the network folder, you might get a message ‘Access Denied’. To fix it, you need to go to ‘Tools’ menu in Windows Explorer, click ‘Folder Options’, then click ‘Use Windows classic folders’ and then click ‘OK’.
