Laptop "can't find server" ??
Admittedly my laptop is pretty old--5 or 6 years? But it has been a real trooper and works perfectly--except for the fact that increasingly it can't find the wireless server. When I turn it on about 1/2 the time now the wireless button glows orange (no server) versus turning blue. The other half of the time it connects to the internet just fine. If it fails to find it, I can't just right click to connect--in fact, it often tells me it IS connected even though it still can't find the server. I have to shut it off and wait awhile before turning it back on and hope that it connects this time. In addition, if the laptop goes unused for, say, 10 minutes it drops the server connection and can't be reestablished. Once again, I have to shut it down and wait before trying again.
It is not the fault of the server or wireless service as I have a backup computer when the first fails that has never had this issue. It connects instantly and stays connected.
Is this something I can fix? HP Pavillion dv6500 running Vista.
