Networking Issues in HP Pavilion® p6350z Series
Solving networking issues in HP Pavilion p6350z.
A computer network, often simply referred as a network, is a collection of computers and devices connected by channels that facilitate communication among users and allows the users to share resources. Computer networks can be used for several purposes such as facilitating communications, sharing hardware, sharing files, data, and information sharing software. Network connectivity is enabled with today’s computers and the HP Pavilion p6350z comes complete with a Gigabit Ethernet connection for Internet access as well as a network connection. A high speed Wi-Fi 802.11n is available for users who use wireless networking. You may, however, face certain networking issues in your HP Pavilion p6350z. In certain cases, you might be unable to connect to different wired or wireless networks. Even after establishing the connection you might notice that you get disconnected often. Docking may also create problems with Bluetooth connectivity.
Tips to solve networking issues in HP Pavilion p6350z:
- Check the cabling
- Check the router and modem
- Reinstall network drivers
Check the cabling
Loose Ethernet cables and failure of the Internet Service Provider (ISP) cable service are the two most common causes that lead to disruption in the connection. In such cases, you are required to ensure that the Ethernet cable is properly connected to your PC. If the LED near the Ethernet connector is not glowing, you can try unplugging the cable and then re-plugging it to ensure a secured connection. You can also replace the cables if they are damaged.
Check the router and modem
The physical connection between the PC and network router needs to be intact for the LEDs to light up. Even after checking the cable connection, if the browser displays “Cannot find server”, try resetting the router and modem followed by restarting the PC. In case of a defective router, you might bypass the Ethernet cable from the PC directly to the modem. If the LEDs on the modem indicate that it is unable to connect to the ISP, you can contact the ISP provider for further assistance.
If the LEDs indicate a good physical connection and yet your PC is unable to connect to any network, you need to verify whether the LAN connection is properly installed in your system and is properly enabled. You can also try reinstalling the network drivers. In the Control Panel, you can uninstall the Ethernet adapter. Then on restarting Windows, it will automatically detect the Ethernet adapter available and reinstall the required drivers during the startup process.
