I have a hp 9810 us. Windows 7 os and Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter and a NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller/ I ran Combofix and when I boot up the computer The wi fi doesn't automaticly connect to the router. There is a switch on the front of the laptop with a indicator light red for off and blue for on. the switch is in the on position but I have to reset it in order for the computer to connect to the router, Any suggestions

You could try removing your network drivers, via Device Manager...and then reinstalling same. They may be damaged.

Your comments re the switch...make no sense to me. What does this switch change...that would impact network capability?

You might read up on possible problems with such...in the documentation for your system.

I've reloaded my drivers, but I get the same results.

Louis,
There is a switch on the front of the laptop. This turns on or off the wi fi.
In the past I could leave the switch in the on position. When I boot up the computer it would automatically connect to the internet.

This may be oversimplifying things, but when you connect to the wireless network the first time, you can choose if it should connect automatically each time, or if it needs to be done manually. Do you have this set to automatically?

Click OK (hit Enter in Vista and Win 7).

2. At Command Prompt, paste this:
ipconfig /all>c:\ipconfig_all.txt&notepad c:\ipconfig_all.txt&exit
Hit Enter.

3. Copy and paste what you see in Notepad into a Reply here.

Are you running it from Command Prompt window?

If so, try to open command prompt as administrator.
After typing cmd hold CTRL and SHIFT keys, press Enter.

Please, re-read my previous reply.

After typing cmd hold CTRL and SHIFT keys, press Enter.

Then, try to run my command again.

Are you copying/pasting my command, or you're typing it manually?
Copy/paste is better, so there is no misspelling.
