HP Probook 6560b User Manual 77

Using a WLAN 5

Setting up a new WLAN

Required equipment:

  • A broadband modem (either DSL or cable) (purchased separately) (1) and high-speed Internet service purchased from an Internet service provider (ISP)
  • A wireless router (purchased separately) (2)

HP Probook 6560b User Manual 55HP Probook 6560b User Manual 57 NOTE: Some cable modems include a built-in router. Check with your ISP to see if you need a separate router.

HP Probook 6560b User Manual 87HP Probook 6560b User Manual 57 NOTE: When setting up a wireless connection, be sure that your computer and wireless router are synchronized. To synchronize your computer and wireless router, turn your computer and wireless router off and then back on.
HP Probook 6560b User Manual 91

As your network grows, additional wireless and wired computers can be connected to the network to access the Internet.

For help in setting up your WLAN, refer to the information provided by your router manufacturer or your ISP.

Protecting your WLAN

When you set up a WLAN or access an existing WLAN, always enable security features to protect your network from unauthorized access. WLANs in public areas (hotspots) like coffee shops and airports may not provide any security. If you are concerned about the security of your computer in a hotspot, limit your network activities to e-mail that is not confidential and basic Internet surfing.

Wireless radio signals travel outside the network, so other WLAN devices can pick up unprotected signals. You can take the following precautions to protect your WLAN:

  • Firewall—A firewall checks both data and requests for data that are sent to your network, and discards any suspicious items. Firewalls are available in both software and hardware. Some networks use a combination of both types.
  • Wireless encryption—Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) uses security settings to encrypt and decrypt data transmitted over the network. WPA uses Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) to dynamically generate a new key for every packet. It also generates different sets of keys for each computer on the network.

Roaming to another network

When you move your computer within range of another WLAN, Windows attempts to connect to that network. If the attempt is successful, your computer is automatically connected to the new network. If

6 Chapter 2 Networking (select models only)

Windows does not recognize the new network, follow the same procedure you used initially to connect to your WLAN.

Using HP Mobile Broadband (select models only)

HP Mobile Broadband enables your computer to use wireless wide area networks (WWANs) to access the Internet from more places and over larger areas than it can by using WLANs. Using HP Mobile Broadband requires a network service provider, which in most cases is a mobile phone network provider.

When used with mobile network provider service, HP Mobile Broadband gives you the freedom to stay connected to the Internet, send e -mail, or connect to your corporate network whether you are on the road or outside the range of Wi-Fi hotspots.

HP Probook 6560b User Manual 93HP Probook 6560b User Manual 57 NOTE:  You may need the HP Mobile Broadband Module serial number to activate mobile broadband service. Refer to the Getting Started guide for the location of the serial number.
HP Probook 6560b User Manual 97

Some mobile network service providers require the use of a subscriber identity module (SIM). A SIM contains basic information about you or your computer, such as a personal identification number (PIN), as well as network information. Some computers include a preinstalled SIM. If the SIM is not preinstalled, it may be included with the HP Mobile Broadband information provided with your computer, or it may be provided separately by the mobile network service provider.

For information on inserting and removing the SIM, refer to Inserting a SIM on page 7 and Removing a SIM on page 8.

For information on HP Mobile Broadband and how to activate service with a preferred mobile network service provider, refer to the HP Mobile Broadband information included with your computer. For additional information, see the HP Web site at http://www.hp.com/go/mobilebroadband (U.S. only).

Using GPS (select models only)

Your computer may be equipped with a Global Positioning System (GPS). GPS satellites deliver location, speed, and direction information to GPS-equipped systems.

For more information, refer to the HP GPS and Location software Help.

Using Bluetooth wireless devices

A Bluetooth device provides short-range wireless communications that replace the physical cable connections that traditionally link electronic devices such as the following:

  • Computers
  • Phones
  • Imaging devices (cameras and printers)
  • Audio devices

Bluetooth devices provide peer-to-peer capability that allows you to set up a personal area network (PAN) of Bluetooth devices. For information on configuring and using Bluetooth devices, refer to the Bluetooth software Help.

Bluetooth and Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)

HP does not recommend setting up one computer with Bluetooth as a host and using it as a gateway through which other computers may connect to the Internet. When two or more computers are

8 Chapter 2 Networking (select models only)

connected using Bluetooth, and Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) is enabled on one of the computers, the other computers may not be able to connect to the Internet using the Bluetooth network.

The strength of Bluetooth is in synchronizing information transfers between your computer and wireless devices including cellular phones, printers, cameras, and PDAs. The inability to consistently connect two or more computers to share the Internet through Bluetooth is a limitation of Bluetooth and the Windows operating system.

Connecting to a wired network

Using a modem (select models only)

A modem must be connected to an analog telephone line using a 6-pin, RJ-11 modem cable (purchased separately). In some countries or regions, a specific modem cable adapter is also required. Jacks for digital PBX systems may resemble analog telephone jacks, but they are not compatible with the modem.

WARNING! To reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the equipment, do not plug a modem or telephone cable into the RJ-45 (network) jack.
