Straight out of the box it would have those popups of limited connectivity. If I plug in my ethernet, that box would go away but then the wifi interface would complain.
If you think about it, it makes sense. What doesn't make sense is that they deliver it configured to annoy owners. Sadly I think we'll have to get the machines to work like toasters or learn where to turn off the popups.
I have a HP laptop and a Dell laptop. I bought a router for my 3G wireless card. My dell is working perfectly. The HP will work great as long as the Ethernet is connected. When you take it off the Ethernet, it will connect, but says limited or no connectivity? I have tried everything I can think of. I ran the wireless assistant and the brand name of my router (Cyfre) is not listed. If you select other, it will not work. There is nothing wrong with the wireless radio or capabilities b/c I used it at my mothers house this week. Does this mean the hp is not going to be compatible? Or am I missing something? Windows firewall is set to allow it. I can't think of anything else that would block it. I have not tried turning the Antivirus software off, but I don't think that is the problem b/c it works great at my moms house. Any ideas on what it could be? I'm hoping its a simple setting that I am just forgetting about. Thanks in advance.
