When I reboot my 64-bit WIndows 7 Laptop, I lose my wireless connection and have to use  troubleshoot problems (from right-click on connection in tray) to get connection working again.

Looks like you had some virus issues. Do you have the same problem of disconnecting from the wireless access point when the computer goes to sleep, or only when it reboots?

 

Try reinstalling the driver for the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000. http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/wireless/n1000

I only have the problem when rebooting, and only on this computer. The other computer, and devices all connect fine.

 

I did reinstall the driver for the Wireless-N 1000 already.

Okay, I ran the SFC from Administrator CMD and received the following message:

 

"windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations."

 

The link you gave me is unclear. I don't have the installation DVD or CD from HP. I think it's on a special partition on HD?

 

That aside, after choosing repair your computer, and filling in the user/pass combination (if I can even remember it), what option would I use? I don't really have startup problems other than the wireless networking not starting up.

The link was instructions on how to get to the recovery environment using the recovery partition on the laptop. Once there, you would choose the command window option. So now we know the issue isn't something with your system files.

 

Since that didn't address the issue, it appears there's a program or service on the laptop that is preventing the wireless card from starting. I noticed in the other thread that they had you install a number of programs. If those are still installed, go into Control Panel>Programs and uninstall all the programs you no longer need: DDS, AdwCleaner, Farbar Recovery, Security Check, MiniToolBox. Reboot the laptop and see if the problem persists.

 

If that doesn't solve it, you'll have to do a clean boot and disable various services, one by one, to determine what might be causing the issue. Unfortunately, this is a rather time-consuming and tedious process, so read through the entire post: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

If something isn't clear, post back.

Okay, I checked and do not see any of the programs we installed to troubleshoot other problems in control panel > programs + features.

 

I rebooted the laptop and sure enough the problem persists.

 

I read over the instructions for doing a clean boot, and find that selective start-up has already been selected and all three boxes below it are ticked. Shouldn't this be on normal startup?

Have you already gone through all the steps of a clean boot process before? Try setting it back to normal and see if that fixes it.

If not, go through the full clean process, shutting down services until the problem goes away.

I don't remember doing that this time around. I'll try setting to normal first.

 

If I need to shut off services, should I do one at a time, or do several at a time? Also, I was going to mention that according to the instructions, it says something about networking failing to work? So how will I know if I fixed something or not?

After enabling normal startup, I'm getting an error message about wireless networking:

 

"DHCP is not enabled for wireless"

 

I'm using static addresses, because we have so much difficulty with Roku box, wireless printer, etc. I don't know if it's because we live in an apartment building with lots of wireless connections, or what. Is there a way to enable DHCP and stay static? Or is there something else I need to check?

At least the wireless card works now. :thumbup2:

 

As for DHCP, if the laptop is set to get it's address via DHCP, the router needs to be set up to use DHCP. If the laptop is set to static addressing, then the wireless needs to be configured to support that. Check your settings on the wireless router.

When I run ipconfig/all I get:

interestingly, the WIFI MINIPORT ADAPTER DHCP is enabled, but the Intel WIFI Link 1000 BGN says DHCP is disabled.

 

How do I enable it?

 

I have the ip and dns addresses set.

Odd. You are getting a valid IP address from the default gateway. I suspect the conflict in the settings between the wifi virtual miniport adapter (DHCP) and the Intel wireless NIC (static IP) may be causing the problem.

 

To set them where you want to be set, click on the network icon in the taskbar to the lower left, and click on Open Network and Sharing Center. On the left, click Change Adapter Settings. Right click each adapter and choose Properties, right click TCP/IP4, choose Properties again, and make sure they are set the way you want them (DHCP or static IP). The key here is to make sure they share the same setting.

I get an error if I try to use the same IP address for all three connections. I still get an error if I enter separate IP addresses. Doesn't make sense. You said the key is to make sure they share the same setting, so I assumed you mean same IP and DNS addresses? Is that wrong?

Hmm. Are the static IP address(es) you are trying to use within the range of IP addresses used by your router?

 

Try this: set the wifi miniport adapter to use a static IP address, and set the Intel Wifi Link to use DHCP -- just the opposite of what it was before. Make sure the wifi miniport's static IP address is within the range used by the wireless access point.

 

And if that doesn't do it, set them both to DHCP.

 

Edit: I should have pointed out that the connections would each need their own static IP address.
