Setup and Configure Windows 7 Network with HP Customer Support
The concept of networking and sharing is quite old but it gets steamed up with emerging technologies. Whether you are at home or office the open ended solution is always around you to match your requirement. Home networking is meant to share folders, files, and an Internet connection across all computers in the home. Important devices for home network include ISP modem, router, network cables, and computers or other network-enabled devices (such as printers or game consoles).
Let’s see how to set up a basic home network. Set up and turn on the power for the network router or other networking device, such as a combined DSL modem and wireless router. Connect HP computers to the router and connect the power cords, and turn on the computers. Many DSL modems have the router built in. Consult the user documentation that came with the modem and router for specific installation instructions. Use the Windows 7 network-setup wizard to add computers and devices in a quick succession and leave rest to the wizard. Don’t forget to turn on Network discovery and file sharing on each computer. However, if you are not getting all smoothly then contact HP customer support.
Let’s see how to fix no connection issue, problems with home networking, and dropping network connection. If you can't connect to the Internet or your webpage is displaying errors “Internet Explorer cannot display the Web page”, “Work Offline: No connection to the Internet is currently available”, “You are currently not connected to any networks” then you should check the physical connectivity related to the modem and router. Next, reset the Internet settings and diagnose and check Windows firewall settings to ensure that your browser is allowed to access the network.
Perform a test by connecting any other PC with the network. You can also trying resetting the router to its factory settings but don’t do without referring to the user-manual. Why to forget the one important tool i.e. Microsoft System Restore to reset PC settings that might be causing problems.
HP Support Experts can instruct you over the phone or can take the remote access of your HP system to fix any related issues. You can setup a firewall, install Windows updates, update security software, download and install HP update to secure your network connection against any unauthorized access.
Slow or dropping Internet connection is another major issue. If your network is running on Windows 7 then use the Windows Network Diagnostics tool available under the Control Panel. Right-click on the “Wireless Network Connection” icon available in the notification area, and select “Troubleshoot problems”. Under “Network and Sharing Center”, click the yellow exclamation-mark or the red X_icon in the Network status area to run Windows Network Diagnostics. In case, you are not getting a breakthrough then its best to set up the network manually. You can also boost up the performance through Windows 7 performance settings without adding memory in Windows 7. Regular disk defragmentation, clearing of the Internet cache and temporary files are few tips which should be an obligation.
Thus, HP repair and maintenance is an easy task, and being a bit focus on your machine you can stay away from a bunch of computer problems.
