Using Wireless LAN Utilities in Windows XP
An automatic wireless network configuration utility is available
on notebooks with Windows XP. This utility is enabled by
default. However, if your notebook is equipped with an
HP-installed WLAN device, you may prefer to use the utility
designed to work with it instead of using the Windows utility.
For more information about using the Windows automatic
wireless network configuration utility, refer to Windows Help
and Support.
For more information about the advantages of using HP-provided
utilities, refer to the following section. For information about
installing an HP-provided utility, refer to the Wireless LAN Utility
Installation Instructions provided with your notebook.
Understanding the Advantages of
HP-Provided WLAN Utilities
The HP-provided utilities have advanced capabilities that
enhance the use of your wireless device. These utilities work in
a more integrated fashion with your wireless device to configure
and manage your wireless network. They are also compatible
with Cisco standards and legacy operating systems.
Disabling the Automatic Wireless Network
Configuration Utility
By default, the Windows automatic wireless network
configuration utility will attempt to configure your wireless
connection. If you do not wish to use the automatic wireless
network configuration utility, you must disable it by following
these steps:
1. Select Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet
Connections > Network Connections.
2. Right click Wireless Network Connection, then select
Properties.

Support.
Once the Windows utility has been disabled, refer to the Wireless
LAN Utility Installation Instructions, provided with your
notebook, for help installing the HP-preloaded utility for your
wireless device.
Setting Up Bluetooth
Select notebooks contain a preinstalled Bluetooth device. The
utility that operates your Bluetooth device has been preloaded but
not preinstalled on the notebook. Before you can use this utility,
you must install it using the following steps:

Safeguarding the Notebook
Protecting the Notebook Against Viruses
When you use the notebook for email, network, or Internet
access, you expose the notebook to computer viruses. Computer
viruses can disable the operating system, your applications, or
your utilities or cause them to function abnormally. Antivirus
software can detect most viruses, destroy them, and, in most
cases, repair any damage they have caused.
HP strongly recommends that you install optional antivirus
software before using your modem or connecting to a network.
Antivirus software is available from most computer or electronics
retailers. To provide protection against newly discovered viruses,
antivirus software must be installed and updated periodically.
Turning Off the Notebook
Whenever possible, shut down the notebook by following the
appropriate Windows shutdown procedure:
■
In Windows 2000, select Start > Shut Down > Shut Down,
then select the OK button.
■
In Windows XP, select Start > Turn off computer > Turn Off.
Using the Notebook Safely
To protect the notebook from the power surges that may be
caused by an unreliable power supply or an electrical storm:
■
Plug the notebook power cord into an optional, high-quality
surge protector. Surge protectors are available from most
computer or electronics retailers.
■
Provide surge protection for the cable that connects the
modem to the telephone jack.
■
Run the notebook on battery power or shut down the
notebook and disconnect the power cord.
