I have a HP Pavilion 5375us Laptop. The screen broke on it 3-5 years ago and I did not use it. Now, I found a monitor and can use ir, but it does not connect through Ethernet Cable or Linkys Wireless N Router. The OS has been reformatted a couple of times, but before it broke it worked on a Netgear Super G Network. It has a wireless card in place which is a 802.11 PCt. All drivers are in ord have triws to connect either throgh Cable or wireless. My wireless network is WPA2 Personal. Can anyone help?

Hey Lionel Kogan,

Please do the following on the laptop.

Step 1 - Connectivity test:
  • Press Start
  • Select Run
  • Type cmd and press OK
  • In the new command prompt window, please type the following commands (*Note: each ping will take approximately 10 seconds to complete; wait for the command prompt to return before you type the next one. Also, the single '>' and double '>>' are intentional; please type the commands exactly as they appear):
    • ipconfig /all > C:\results.txt
    • route print >> C:\results.txt
    • ping >> C:\results.txt
    • ping google.com >> C:\results.txt
    • ping >> C:\results.txt
  • Once the above commands have completed, navigate to your C: drive and open the text file results.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
Step 2 - Check to ensure your adapter is working properly:
  • Press Start
  • Select Run
  • Type devmgmt.msc and press OK
  • In the new window, please expand Network Adapters
  • Are there any devices under the network adapters that have either a red 'x' or a yellow '!'?
