hp pavilion dv 6000 laptop unable to connect to wifi network automatically

HP Recommended
Example: Pavilion dv 6000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I start a laptop for the first time in the morning laptop fails to connect to wifi automatically. To connect I need to disable the network driver and enable it again in the device manager. If I restart the laptop any other time also it fails to connect. I need to follow the same driver to enable disable the process. I am using wifi driver (Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection). I tried updating the driver also but the driver shows the best drivers for your device are already installed. Windows version I am using is Windows 10 Pro version 1909. Can I change wifi device driver? Please suggest to me how to get rid of the automatic wifi connection issue.

Hi

Router/Modem

Set the lease time to maximum and allocate/fix/reserve an IP address.

 

 

 

C:\ipconfig -all

Wireless LAN adapter WiFi:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : broadband
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adapter
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 
DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : 
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.77(Preferred)
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : 17 May 2020 10:21:18
Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : 23 June 2156 17:45:37
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

 

Then match the adapter IP address to the Router/Modem.

 

My old Router/Modem settings were...

MANUAL option.

Thanks for your suggestion. My router settings are maintained by ISP I can't make any changes to the router. I will try asking my ISP to change the lease time.

Hi:

 

What I had to do to get my Intel 3945 to work correctly on W10 was to change the wireless mode from a/b/g to b/g.

 

You can find the different wifi card settings in the advanced settings tab for the wifi card in the device manager.

"change the wireless mode from a/b/g to b/g" didn't work as expected. Even after changing it, wifi doesn't pick up automatically when I restart the machine. I need to follow the same old process disabling wifi driver and enabling it and connecting wifi manually.

You're very welcome.

 

Sorry that didn't work for you.

 

What is the driver version and date that W10 installed for your Intel wifi adapter?

You have the latest driver installed.

 

I was hoping there was a newer one I could give you.

 

I do have an older one if you want to try it.

 

13.0.0.107
