Hey guys i have an HP DV4-1551DX and recently it stopped picking up wireless networks. When i do ipconfig /renew i get a message saying i cant do it while media is disconnected. If i hook up a wired connection internet works fine. I have tried several things but just cant figure it out and im kinda out of ideas to try. Any help would be appreciated! thank you

..hi there!..try to re-install or update the driver of your wireless adapter..i hope it helps!..^_^..

Re: Media disconnected 80 80

Already reinstalled and updated drivers but thank you!

Re: Media disconnected 80 80

Maybe post a list of things you have tried.

Re: Media disconnected 80 80

iv reinstalled and updated drivers
made sure the wireless card is on =P
tried the windows 7 network repair
tried to ipconfig /renew
connected with wired connection(which works)
gone into cmd
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

also i forgot to add that the machine dual boots with Ubuntu and wireless works fine in Ubuntu.

Re: Media disconnected 80 80

Um any chance theres a piece of software on your laptop taking precedence over the windows network manager? And it is controlling access to wireless networks?

Re: Media disconnected 80 80

nope, i was thinking of trying to find one though to see if it fixes the problem but there is none as of now. Thanks for the suggestions so far!

Re: Media disconnected 80 80

Probably another dead end suggestion, but remove the device in device manager (completely uninstall it) then let win 7 install some drivers, and see what happens
