My wireless connection has completly disappeared. The icon is gone, and when I go to my network connections, there are only two; Local Area and one with numbers in it. It used to come back, but now it has been gone for the last 3 days or so. The only way I can connect to the internet is if I plug my laptop directly into the router. Why is this happening and how can I fix it? Thank you so much for your time.

P.S. - I'm a total moron when it comes to computers, and my laptop is an HP.

Hiya,

Could you clarify whether your laptop was purchased with Wi Fi already enabled, or have you installed a wireless card yourself ?

regards,

Tony.
Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream ?

By the sound of this it could be either a faulty wireless chip or a bad driver controlling the wireless chip. It is quite important to know if this is the same as it was originally out of the box or if this has been added after. It could be worth going to the suppliers (HP) website and download the latest wireless drivers for your model laptop.

I'm pretty sure that I already had wifi enabled. Now my wireless connects, but it has limited or no connectivity.

that is normally due to IP addressing. CHeck to make sure the wireless network is setrup for DHCP along with the Wireless IP settings. This will make sure they will be able to talk to each other if they are connected.
