I know others have had this problem but their advice doesn't work for me.

I'm having the same problem as another user Baduga whose thread is copied below. I did download the driver version 5.60.48.31 for the Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN device which was released February 03, 2010. However, when I try to connect to a secured wireless network it seems to see the router, but just spins and spins with the message "acquiring network address" and it never actually connects.

Baduga, below, also had this problem once the drivers were updated. He reported the fix was by following the instructions on HP customer service page that flavallee linked earlier. It turns out my password was missing from the association page of the wireless network connection.

Can someone give that link again, and be explicit about what you have to do to get to the association page of the wireless network connection, and exactly which password needs to be entered there/

Many thanks, NeverHadSoMany (Problems with Wireless Connections)

Hello
I just bought a Compaq Mini that uses Windows 7. I'm attempting to connect to my router using wireless but I get an error saying "Possible network security key mismatch". I am using Verizon FiOS. I am certain I typed in the correct WEP key, because it's printed right on the router. My desktop also runs Windows 7, but uses a Netgear wireless USB adapter and works fine. I was also able to successfully connect to an unsecure wireless network and through ethernet with the netbook. After googling, I found someone suggesting disabling Internet Protocol Version 6, but the problem still persists, so I enabled it. Any help would be appreciated.

I have just replaced the 802.11b Intel PRO 2100 wireless adapter in my Dell Inspiron 600m laptop computerwith an 802.11b/g Intell PRO 2200BG. I am confused about connecting the antenna cables to the new mini PCI board. Originally, the grey cable was connected to the Main connector and the black cable to the Aux connector. This is how Dell shipped the computer with the 2100. However, the Installation Guide for the new adapter (2200BG) indicates that the black cable should be connected to Main and the grey to Aux. How would I know which connection configuration is correct? Thanks.

P.S. I don't know if this is of any relevance, but the Intel PRO Wireless 2200BG adapter appears to be intended for HP computers. The drivers CD has HP on it and the Installation Guide is "Copyright 2004 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.". Is the antenna cable colour standardised among computer brand manufacturers?

My partner and I have a small web-based business. All our records, etc are contained in Excel and Word files. We each have a laptop, and each of us has the data files on our laptop. Whenever one of us changes a file (and saves it to his hard drive), we then have to copy the changed file to the other's computer, so that he'll have the updated file. We also have a third laptop that we use as a 'spare'.

Obviously, there's an easier way, like what's done in most offices using a server and network. We were thinking that it should be relatively simple to set up the spare computer as a 'server', where all the files would be stored. Then each user would call up the file, work with it, and save the updated file back to the 'server', and to his own HDD. And we'd like to do this wireless (all the computers already have wireless cards). But neither of us is that tech-savvy to design such a network

Can someone please tell me what additional hardware and/or software we need, and what will be involved in the installation of this mini-network.

Thanks in advance to all who may respond.

Hi, im having problems with my mini pci wireless card in MSI U130 notebook, it keeps dropping the signal and then when i try to reconect it cant find any networks at all. To get it to reconnect i have to restart but this dose not always work, disable the raido in settings, or unistall driver, or reinstall windows.

so this is what ive tried already

updated the drivers using the MIS Live update tool
Unchecked the box that says "allow computer to turn off device"
Deleted drivers and reinstalled
Deleted windows 7 and reinstalled fresh copy (works for a few days then starts to drop again)
Reinstalled windows 7 and only used the windows 7 driver Not updated it

From that and the other stuff you've tried and described I think that the card or motherboard is intermittently defective. If it's the motherboard there's nothing you can do. If it's the card you could replace it with the exact same model or one that you know is supposed to work in that model laptop.

My advice is to keep the USB adapter in your pocket or laptop case and use it when needed.

Hi:Take a look at device manager,particularly the WLAN card.Any error indicators?
Let’s take a look at the status of the network adapters

Device manager:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?
4. should be enabled and working properly.
5. If error code,what is it ?

It would be best if you could post a screen shot of Device Manager with the Network adapters and Other devices sections expanded.

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Also.Go to the Dell site.Search the drivers available for your particular model by inputting the service tag # for your unit.Should be on a side or bottom tag along with model and serial #.This will make it a lot easier to determine the proper driver(s) to download/install

I currently use drivers from 2008:

Driver Version 4.176.75.21 - 10/1/2008

for my Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card.

Whenever I run Microsoft Update it tells me to upgrade to the latest drivers, however, with the newest drivers I experience a SIGNIFICANT drop in throughput- something like from 108 mbps with my current setup to 1-15 mbps with the "updated" drivers.

I'd like to have the most up to date driver, but do not want to limit my Wifi bandwidth either. Any advice would be greatly appreciated-- all my system info *should* be in my profile.

PS I'm a brand new user, so I apologize if this is not a well written post!

A:Updated Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card Worse Connect

If the new driver causes problems and the old one works fine, best to just stick with the old driver. Typically you only need to update your drivers if you are experiencing problems or the new driver adds some functionality. Otherwise it is better to just leave well enough alone. If is listed as an important update, right-click the update and hide it.

If you are set on updating, you can try downloading the driver from the Dell website (link below) and uninstalling the old driver prior to installing the new driver. You can also look at the fixes and enhancements listed on the Dell site to determine if you really need it.

Have a USB wireless WiFi unit. To connect to the Internet. Have to disable the Local Area Connection. When connected to the Internet. If I enable the Local Area Connection. Unable to connect to the Internet. When I disable the LAC, the Internet connection is restablished. Using a D-Link boradband VPN router.
 

A:Wireless Network Connection will only connect to Internet if Lcl Area Connect disable

sounds about right! Your big issue will be the VPN, as it is frequently specifically
config'd to use a specific adaptor AND to force all tcp traffic thru that connection,
even though you want to do some trivial google.com search.

Consider using a Hardware Profile to define
1) a LAN connection environment (ie no WiFi)
2) a WiFi environment (w/o a LAN)

the choice occurs at boot time and the hardware is enabled/disabled per
the profile.

I have a lenovo u160 running windows 7, a couple of days ago it seemed my computer was infected with something, giving a series of security warnings I had not seen before (not av security suite). It slowed the computer down for a few minutes.

After closing these messages, there seemed to be no problem, but then my computer was no longer connect to the internet. It connects to our router/wireless network, but not to the internet.

I tried resetting and unplugging the router and the modem, but still no luck. We have two other computers on the same network that are connecting to both the network and the internet.

I tried running rkill and malwarebytes twice and no malicious items were detected.

I restored the computer to an earlier point (2-3 days earlier)

On the toolbar in the bottom right of the taskbar, it shows a 5 white signal bars, with a "!" inside a yellow triangle.
If I click on the network button it states it is "connected" to the network. It describes the connection as "excellent" (4-5/5 bars).

Above the display of the available networks, it states

"currently connected to:
Unidentified network
No Internet access"

I am not computer savvy and have not run into this problem before. Thanks for your time and help.

She keeps loosing connection, then has to wait until it decides it can connect again. She would wait about five minutes and then click on something and would gain access.

the symptom has been occurring for at least a month and more.

We are on a wireless network (Uverse) and have not had any problems with this wireless network

One thing i notice is that her icon for the connect shows one less bar than mine shows. I should be the same. they are both HP machines and sit in the same spot.

when it is not connected and the icon is clicked it does not show our connect name as an option. Sometimes rebooting solves the problem, sometimes clicking 'connect' does. It will work for a while and then she looses the connect.

Hey guys, need some urgent help here.

I have a program on my computer called Intel(R) My WiFi Technology, which has something to do with my network adapter (Intel (R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN). I recently had an annoying notice popping up from this program saying 'The Wireless Network Adaptoor could not be found'. So I decided that I should find a solution on Intel's forums. I came across a thread that discussed my problem, and one of the Intel workers mentioned that Uninstalling and Reinstalling the program would be the best solution. So I followed the steps and came across a huge problem . Turns out that once I removed this program, my computer wouldn't connect to my wireless network in my house. I went onto my other devices throughout the home and they all seemed to be working fine, and that my router was still working fine aswell. I went onto my other computer and downloaded the program onto my USB, and installed it back onto my original computer.

Hi. I have an IBM T40 Thinkpad laptop running Windows XP with CISCO Aironet Client Utility installed to manage my wireless networks. I don't understand the point of this utility as I find the Windows XP wireless connection management more reliable and straightforward, but I don't know how to disable this thing. I would if I could and I have tried, although not that hard.

Anyway, I was using the CISO Aironet Client Utility (or whatever it's called) fine, then I visited a friend's house and needed to get on his network. He started poking around and one day it was working and the next it was broken. It kept saying it couldn't find a radio signal or that it was off. I came home and it wasn't working for a month or so.

One day, I messed around with it and it started working again. Only problem now is whenever I shut down my laptop and re-open it, it never reconnects to my wireless connection automatically. I always have to do it by hand.

Any suggestions here? How can I get it to reconnect automatically and if I can't, how can I get it to use the Windows wireless features that are built in and bypass this CISCO stuff?

Thanks!

Hi everyone: Iím having an extremely frustrating problem connecting to my Netgear DG384G v3 wireless router in my flat.

In short:

Ever since I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro, internet browsers do not detect a connection to the internet despite a wireless connection being detected in the network connections (and the icon in the system tray) when my wireless adapter is plugged into my PC. Connection problems only occurred after the reformat, another PC in my flat connects wirelessly to our router with no problems (before, during & after the time I reformatted; Iím posting this using his PC) and the router config settings have definitely not been changed in any way so its not a router problem. It appears that the wireless adapter is able to detect a signal from the router but the router is not sending information to the adapter (I canít even connect to the router setup IP address 192.168.0.1)?

More detailed:

1) I wiped the PCís harddrive then reinstalled Windows XP Pro Ė I thought the recovery disk would have drivers with it (like others Iíd used) but it didnít so I had to manually find nVidia chipset & 3com Ethernet controller drivers and SP1 (for USB 2.0 functionality), download them on another PC and transfer and install them on mine.

Hi everyone.

This past weekend I went out of town and took my Windows 7 laptop with me -- since I returned home, it has been unable to connect to my wireless network. Other devices in my home connect to the network just fine, and the problem laptop has always been fine until now. My network card is an Atheros AR9285, and I'm attempting to connect to a Medialink router with WPA password protection and AES encryption.

My wireless network icon in the task bar has a yellow sign with an exclamation point in it. It says "No Internet access."

I have tried:

-rebooting the computer
-unplugging and restarting the modem and router
-going to the command prompt and renewing my IP address with the command IPCONFIG/RENEW

None of this works.

Like I said, all other devices in my house connect to the wireless network with no problem. It's just this one laptop. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:Wireless Network Detected, but Internet Explorer Wont Connect to network in Win 7

Have you tried any other browsers? SeaMonkey is a good one to try if you don't have another. You can still keep IE as default and have SeaMonkey for backup for web pages that may not display correctly in IE or when you have access problems like you are having now. Being Mozilla-based, it uses a different rendering engine. For those web sites that support pipelining, you may also find that it is considerably faster.

Check your connection settings under Internet Options. In the LAN section, try toggling the "Automatically Detect Settings" option.

I then went to to Network COnnections folder, There are 3 icons, one says Incomming, the other 2 in the LAN or HighSpeed Internet section says 1394 Connection, and Wireless Network Connection Enabled. On the far left column, i clicked on Create a New Connection. I clicked the option of " Connect to the internet" , then "Setup my Connection Manually.". Then " Connect Using a broadband connection that is always on." .. because I dont need a login name and password. After clicking NEXT and Finished, ..nothing happened.. i clicked on IE again, and same thing pops up. I tried doing the 2nd option to let u enter the ID and password BUT disable the prompt to log in with a username and pw.. still dont work.
What gives? How do i fix this problem? Any help is appreciated. thnx.

Hi I need a little assistance. I am on a dell laptop running Windows XP Pro SP2. This is my mothers laptop and I have no clue what she did with it. OK, so I have an IP address, connected to Wireless network, can ping DNS Server, DHCP server, and Default Gateway. Tried the Winsock reset and the int ip reset. Also IPconfig release and renew. Haven't gone into the registry yet (Kinda nervous don't wanna mess anything else up. Need specific instructions). Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers (found online). Ran into a whole different set of problems and error messages, but I've gotten all those resolved already. I connected a LAN line with still no luck. I even installed Firefox. With all that done it still won't connect to the internet. I've used up all my tech savvy\expertise and I'm at a lost. Anything else you can think of that I can try? Thanks in advance

Up until this afternoon, i had been able to access my wireless network fine. However, I had taken my computer outside, and tried to connect. I was not able to, and had xp try to "repair" the problem. No luck. I brought it back into my room, but it still didn't work. It will say "acquiring network address" on and off, but never connect. Everyone else in the house can connect to it fine, and i can still connect to it through ethernet cable, and to other wireless networks besides this one. I ran a diagnostic, where it said that the network keys did not match up, i checked them, and the diag report gave me this.

Can anyone help?

Hi,

I am hoping that someone can help me.
We have three computers at home two which are connected to router and working fine and my laptop.
My laptop was connecting to my home wireless network until my daughter used it last. Now it will not connect at all
I used to have to follow the steps below for some reason and then it would connect fine:
Wireless network connections
Change advanced settings
Wireless Networks tab
I would have to tick the checkbox USE WINDOWS TO CONFIGURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS
Then into properties for my wireless network and in association retype my password and then it would connect. (it seemed like to much work every time but it still worked)
There was other networks in the list which i deleted and wireless network connection shows that the network connection strength is excellent but it just seems to get stuck aquiring the network address. I have tried repair etc.

Can someone please help me with this as maybe it's just something simple!!

Hi,

I really appreciate anytime that anyone will take to help on this (even tough I might not be perfectly clear!). I'm trying to connect a desktop using windows xp home SP1 with a linksys USB 54G adapter to a linksys wireless-B router. The device specification say that the USB device is capable on connecting to a wireless-B network. I had no problem doing the same thing with a laptop using XP home SP1 and a pcmcia wireless-AG card.

The problem is that when I finish the installation of the USB adapter. My network does get recognize and i get a message from the icon in the tray that says "wireless networks are available". I double-click and see my network showing and I only have to check the option to connect to the network even if it is not secure to have the possibility to hit connect. Which I have done without any success. After I did this, nothing as really change. I still get the message from the tray that "wireless connections are available" like I did before and just wont connect.

I've tried disabling the network card connection in "network connection" and the reinstalled the USB adapter without any success. At that point, if I check in cmd->ipconfig. I get media not connected. Could it be an update? Because the computer has not been connected do the internet since it was shipped a year ago with XP home SP1.

Hey, I really hope someone can help with this because I am all outta ideas!

I have just set up a wireless network, and my phone (android) can connect to it fine with the correct wep key, but my laptop (windows 7) cannot. it sees the network but when I try to connect it does not ask for a wep key, it just tells me it cannot connect. I have tried going into the 'network and sharing center' and connecting manually but no dice! Please help, I am clueless!

A:cannot connect to wireless network

open network and sharing center, go to 'Manage Wireless Networks', right click on the connection in question, go to properties, in the security tab, set the security to OPEN, then try again.

if this doesnt work, its possible your network adapter doesnt support the encryption type, although wep is very basic, so it should. its best that you use WPA, instead. So if those fail, then turn off the security altogether and try again without encryption to see what happens.

If the wireless adapter has disappeared from the Device Manager, I'd be looking at reseating it in it's socket and checking if it's disabled in the BIOS. Are you SURE is isn't appearing in Other Devices as an unknown device?
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?

It would be best if you could post a screen shot of Device Manager with the Network adapters and Other devices sections expanded.

After bringing my notebook on a business trip, I have found that back at home, it will not connect to the internet anymore.
I run two computers on off of a wireless router, my primary computer being a PC, which is conencted via ethernet cables. My notebook has a wireless network card in it. When I turn on the notebook, it says that the wireless connection is active, and has full reception. The problem is that it will not access anything on the internet.
It is quite possible I need to do something with my router or firewall, but I dont have the slightest clue what
I tried to 'repair the connection' (I am running Windows XP) and it shows an error (It says it cannot refresh the IP, so I am assuming that the notebook does not have any direct connection to the internet, even though it is responding with the router)

Any help appreciated, thanks
 

A:Cannot connect to wireless network

This may not be of a lot of help, but I had a somewhat similar problem in a fairly similar setup - although it was on my main PC and I run Win 2000, but anyway. I have a Belkin wireless router and initially could set up the wireless access fine but couldn't get the LAN functional. Kept moaning about the card being unplugged, and wouldn't access the net for love nor money. I ended up phoning Belkin who walked me through my setup only to discover that on running IPConfig nothing happened - zilch - no info or anything - the screen just returned a note saying it was the config utility and that was that. So Belkin told me I'd most likely need to reinstall Windows to sort it, BUT they also then provided me with a static IP address for the router and lo and behold, that fix worked for me. Was a bit rough having to reinstall but certainly sorted the problem out. Ironically I'm just about to throw up my own query as I'm now in another no-net access situation on that same machine but for some different reason this time.

I would suggest you perhaps do the same and if you can, contact your router op and see if they can provide you with a suitable static IP addy or else try reinstalling your XP and see what that does. If you want a lesser fix it may be worth uninstalling/rebooting/reinstalling your cards/software although that may not sort the problem sufficiently, but as you've had it going before I would imagine (like me) it's been some change in your...

I have a HP Pavilion dv9930us laptop. I recently upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate from Visata Home Premium 64-bit. Everything worked fine until I decided that I didn't want WinAmp that I previously installed. I uninstalled WinAmp. However, when I rebooted the latop, it went into an infinte loop after startup (that is, it would load all the applicatons, but whenever it connected to the internet, it would go into an infinite loop). I also uninstalled HP Quick Launch Buttons. I thought the laptop was going into an infinite loop because it was looking for these programs since they may not have been properly uninstalled. I went ahead an reinstalled these programs but after 30 seconds after startup, when trying to connect to the wirless network, it would freeze (that is only the mouse would work but everything else on the desktop was unresponsive). I edited msconfig several times, at one point, went through each program to see which ones were responsible for the laptop freeze. I found two programs, the SSDP Discovery and the CNG Isolation Key that were causing the laptop to freeze up after startup. I later found out that these two programs, especially the CNG Isolation Key were important to connect wirelessly. The virus program I have is Kaspersky and I already ran a malwarebytes scan through safe mode. At this point, all applications work fine except that I cannot connect to the wireless network.

Ok, so wegot sky broadband a couple of weeks ago, everything working fine

I use a laptop with a usb wireless adapter, 108 mbps and that was working fine but i thought that getting a pcmia card would be better as it'd be less likely to break

got that through monday. installed it yesterday and it briefly worked as i connected through the windows wireless program. After that, couldnt connect at all. Reinstalled the usb one andagain that worked briefly, but now neither work. Reinstalled eachone countless times but nothing.

The network connection symbol always has a red X on it, it doesnt even change toshow that its trying to connect when i do try to get on. The PW is definitely correct but whatever program i use to try to get on the network, nothing happens.

Ridiculous how the usb used to work,and now neither of the adapters work.The network is fine for everyone else in the house,makes no sense.

A:Cannot connect to wireless network any more

Interesting , but solveable.

Some PCMI cards are often not compatible with some security method's.

Windows Xp will run the adapter switch as an equation.
i will explain myself ...
If you had an Usb adapter running on WEP securities.
and suddenly you switch it with a PCMCI card , windows Xp Will automatically select the best configuration settings available in order to make the card work.
Wile the settings for your USB stick will be lost.

Most of the new PCMCI card that are being release proving to be dificult to connect them under a wep based security setting , wile they are most effective under WPA.

If you wish to restore your Settings for th USB stick....

you should go into your wireless connection properties and select view wireless networks , the go to change advanced settings and select the wireless networks tab that is located at the top of the window , Remove the saved configuration settings
the PCMCI card , then o ahead and plug you USB and set the password for your security method then connect to your network.

As for your PCMCI card...

Check your manual or your manufacturer's web site and verify if the card is compatible with WEP security , also check if there are any forums were you can check customer testimonies about the product as well...
(sometimes manufacturers like to brag by saying .. she can do this , wen she actually cant do ''squat'').

Right this is driving me absolutely insane and I can't find any kind of solution so i'll be thorough.

I have a Dell dimension 5100 running XP, I haven't used it in a while because it wouldn't connect to the internet so I left it alone. I believed this was because I uninstalled the card by accident. Anyway last week I decided I'd format it's hard drive and re-install XP and then all the drivers and get it working again. All went well but even with the fully installed card it still wont connect all I get in the network connections window is it goes 'Automatic, acquiring network address, Automatic' over and over again.

My ISP is Sky and the router is that little black one (it's either Netgear DG934G or Sagem [email protected] 2504 (they both look the same)) and it works fine connecting perfectly to 2 vista laptops, a mac, a PSP and an xbox 360 with no hiccups.

Anyway so I figured that maybe the network card is broken (it's a netgear 54 mps 32-bit PCI card WG311 v2) and bought today a peak II 802.II b/g 54 mps card and installed etc. No problems with the install it picks up the network etc but gives me the exact same not connecting problem with both the windows network connections and it's own wireless utility (the other card was the same).

Please help me, if you can get this working i'll be forever in your debt.

Rarely this will occur on other networks as well, but I almost always can connect to networks other than my home one. The network works with my pc if I use a wire it, but it almost never does wireless. I also have three roommates all who can connect to the router wireless with no problems whatsoever.

I'm currently running Windows 7 on my laptop with an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN wireless card.

So far I have tried the following:
-disabling firewall
-updating wireless drivers
-turning off/on the modem and router

The last option (turning off/on the modem and router) has worked, but it seems to only work for a couple of hours, sometimes even less, after I reset the modem and router. Also, sometimes I get the "Windows detected an IP address conflict" message.

This is my ipconfig /all:

When I turn on my laptop, it fails to connect to Wireless Network.

I've had this problem for more than a year.

Usually I open Change adapter settings, disable Wireless Network Connection, and then enabled it again. It took some minutes but it worked when I did that.

However, it's not working anymore. My laptop indicates that it's connected to the wireless but it's not. Disable-->Enable does not work. So I restart or shutdown and turn the computer back on. But it usually doesn't connect to the network at a single attempt, so I have to restart/shutdown 2-3 times until my laptop is finally connected to the wireless network. It's getting pretty annoying.

Is there any way I can solve this problem?

Neither my Win7 desktop nor my Macbook (running Win7) can connect to my wireless network. They see it - 5 bars - and try to connect, then say they can't and offer to start a troubleshooter, which is then unable to find the cause of the problem.

When the Macbook is booted into Mac OS (10.6) is connects fine, as does my Mac Mini - so it must be a Win 7 configuration issue. I have had "Connectify" running on both desktop and laptop but have uninstalled it from the desktop.

Any ideas ?

A:Win 7 Won't Connect To My Wireless Network, Mac OS Does

I'm sure you've already tried this but it doesn't hurt to clarify.

1.) Ensure you have Windows set to connect to the router the way the router is expecting to be connected to. (Example: If you have a G router, make sure your wireless adapter is set that way)
2.) Ensure Windows has the correct WEP key (if you have WEP enabled on the router) and or a password to connect to your router.
3.) Ensure your router isn't set to allow specific MAC ID's access, if it is set this way, add the MAC address of each of the Windows wireless cards. (This may not be an issue as the Macbook can connect through OSX. Technically, the MAC address is set at the hardware level so it wouldn't change regardless of OS.).
4.) What kind of router is it? Should be able to research any issues regarding Windows 7 and that router.

Just a few steps to think about while you wait for other responses

Hi Guys
Just bought, off a friend, an Acer Aspire 7720G.
Before I bought it he wiped everything back to factory settings.
When I first started it it was ok, I downloaded google chrome, pokerstars and then all the microsoft updates.
Since then I have only managed to connect to the internet once. This was when I left the laptop for around 20 mins and when I went back it had connected to my home network.
We have 2 other laptops and an iphone that connects to the internet so I know the router is working.
I have disabled the wirless adapter and restarted the laptop but still get nothing.
As I type this, on another laptop!, the problem one has been on for 30 mins but still nothing.
I have spoke to my friend who I bought the laptop off and he says he had no problems whatsoever.

Hi

I started my PC in a new premises with a Wireless modem, I have two other PC's

When I started the PC it saw the wireless network and the option came up to connect
and there was a tick in the "Connect Automatically" box.

I selected OK but got a message "unable to connect".
I did not get the opportunity to enter the Password/Key.

Now the PC will not connect to the Network nor will and Diagnose and repair fix anything.

BTW the Ethernet adaptor has been disabled.
The laptop I am sending this from is next to the PC so the wireless signal is okay.

Any ideas on how to get the PC Connected?

Thanks

A:Cannot connect to the wireless network

What OS did you upgrade to Windows 10 from? If it was Windows 7 then it's possible the router does not support WPA2-PSK[AES] while Windows 10, like Windows 8 and 8.1 no longer supports WPA-PSK[TKIP].

Check your router Advanced Wireless Setup page.

This info was posted here on tenforums.com recently but I can't find the post now so can't attribute this info correctly.

First you should make sure that your router is using WPA2-AES for encryption. Most Win 7 drivers prefer this method of connection.

We have a small office network... 2 wired desktops and 3 wireless laptops. My laptop
was working fine, I took it home over the weekend and it connected to home network
just fine, then brought it in and it will not connect. All the other computers are working fine on the network. I've tried all I know to do, as limited as that is.
- I have made sure the key is correct and all the settings are correct.
- I have tried "repairing" the wireless network in the "Network Connections" window...
this will make the Internet Gateway appear for about a minute and I can get on the
internet, but then it goes away and says "not able to connect to any of your preferred
networks"
- tried to "ping" ip address and it says "destination host unavailable"
- reset TCP/IP settings using "netsh winsock reset" and this worked... for about 2 minutes... then I was off the network and back to square 1
- While I was connected I was able to successfully ping 192.168.1.1 which I believe is the correct ip address... was also able to successfully ping 205.152.0.20 which I believe is the DNS server... keep in mind I really don't know what that tells me, but it must be better than "destination host unavailable"

Like others who have recently posted here, I am also new to these forums. And I am not at all computer savvy, so I will try to explain my problem and provide the necessary details.

My laptop has had recent trouble connecting to the wireless network that I share with my neighbor. It has worked regularly until two days ago, when it began stalling on the "Acquiring Network Address" stage endlessly until I cancel the request. As a test, I've tried connecting to other unsecured sites in the area to see if it's possible to connect to these, but the result is the same. My roommate also shares this connection, and has had no trouble. Thus, I figure it's something with my computer.

Here are my details:

Model: Dell Inspiron B130
Operating System: Windows XP
Network Adapter: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG

To answer a few questions ahead of time, I can not plug my laptop into a modem, because the modem is inaccessible. Also, I have already attempted to disable the router several times.

What can I do from this point? Thank you.

Today I turned on my laptop and it booted all the way into Windows and then for no reason, completely powered off. I powered it back on and it started to do a memory check. After that, it booted to Windows but my wireless connection is X-ed out and the time is wrong on the PC.

I know the Internet is working. 2 other PCs in my house are on it (what I am using now). When I try to refresh networks it does not detect anything. I reinstalled the wireless driver-no luck. I turned the firewall off-still no luck. In my device manager, the network drivers appear to be ok, although there is question marks under "Other Devices". I checked the BIOS and wireless is enabled. I also tried to do a system restore from a week ago and it was sucessful, but I still have no Internet and the time is still wrong on the system clock. Any ideas?

A:Can't see/connect to my wireless network

Maybe the "wireless radio" option on your wired/wireless router is OFF for some reason. What is the brand/model of your router?

You should have instructions that came with the device. Check them, for the address of the router and userid/password, and other basic setup steps.

You can connect to your router using Firefox or IE, by entering its address (say, 192.168.1.1 for Netgear routers) and then entering the userid/password as the instructions tell you.

The basic wireless settings are in something like Setup -> wireless settings, and control security. This provides (a) wireless network ID name as it appears in the wireless scan for a network shown on laptops, i.e. SSID, (b) password to be entered by wireless laptops in order to log in to the router's wireless network, i.e. PASSPHRASE, and (c) security level option, and you should generally pick the highest, e.g. WPA2-PSK [AES].

The ON/OFF state of the whole wireless capability of your router is controlled in a second place, something like Advanced -> Wireless settings, in an item named "enable wireless router radio" or something like that. If unchecked, this will disable wireless functionality and limit the router to wired-only. This is good if you don't need wireless in your house and don't want your neighbors stealing access (assuming they could crack your userid/password and encryption). If checked, wireless functionality is enabled.

Note that even if wireless router radio IS checked, y... Read more

Hi guys, I'm having problems connecting to our wireless network. I'm not very good at the technical stuff so I'll try my best to provide as much info as possible on the situation so please bare with me and ask if you need anything else (which I'm sure you will).

With my old PC in the same room in the house I've had it connected before, about a year ago. With my new computer though, I'm having issue after issue.

The router is a Linksys Cisco model # WAG120N.

The Wireless adapter is an ASUS USB-N13 (802.11n)

Both PCs have Windows XP SP2.

It seems to get stuck on "Acquiring network address" and won't get past that. Thinking it might have had something to do with the IP address I tried this with no avail:

http://www.wikihow.com/Change-your-IP-Address-(Windows)

When I click "Repair" it doesn't go past renewing IP address.

I've seen many similar situations while googling but nothing has worked for me. It's probably something simple (well I hope anyway!!)

Hi there,

I'm running Vista on a Toshiba Satellite... everything was working superbly until a few months ago, when, all of a sudden, my laptop stopped playing nice when it came to connecting to available wireless networks, including my home network!! Aaarrgggghhhh!!

So, the network I want to connect to is in the list, and when I click on it, and click connect, it is unable to connect, and when I click on "Diagnose", it simply says that "Windows is not set to automatically connect to <network name>" and then goes on to say that I need to select a wireless network and connect to it.

It doesn't matter which available wireless network I select, I continuously have the same result. Now, I know the network at home works fine, as my husband has connected with his computer/s, no problem (an old Toshiba running XP and a brand new MacBook).

Any suggestions for fixing this issue will be warmly received!!

I'm a little technically challenged, so please feel free to ask questions if you need further information in order to help.

Hi,

I'm the IT person of an office. One of the people I work with just bought this new laptop but is unable to connect to the wireless system in our office. I am at loss over what to do. The laptop sees the network and when I try connecting to it, it connects me, but once I try using the internet I get disconnected immediately. If I connect but don't use the internet it will keep me on for only a few minutes, if not seconds. Also, when I am connected I try ping-ing the gateway but I get 100% loss with a request timed out. The signal is strong so that can't be the problem, also other laptops are able to connect to the network so I know that's not the problem. I don't know what's going on it's like this laptop is refusing to connect to the network. The network is not secured, if that could have anything to do with it - I checked the firewall and it's disabled so that's not the problem either.

I am having problems with the wireless adapter provided with my PC. It can see my wireless router (a Netgear DG824M) and the signal strength is excellent, but it is unable to connect. I either get Limited connection or no connection at all. (It shows "Identifying..." in the Network map.)

From the manual, the wireless adapter is a Asus WL-138GE or WL-138G V2. Windows recognised it as a Broadcom adapter, so I downloaded a Vista 64 bit driver from Asus and installed that. The adapter is now recognised as a Asus 802.11 adapter, but this has not made any difference to being able to connect. The driver provided by Asus does seem to be quite old (2006 I think), and still references Broadcom. There is an Asus utility CD provided by the PC, but this doesn't seem to run on Vista 64.
I have had the connection work pefectly 3 times, but then, the next time I reboot, without changing anything, it stops working. For example, yesterday I turned off Windows Firewall, rebooted, and it worked. The next I booted, still with the firewall disabled, it didn't work.

It seems that the wireless card is unable to get an IP address from the router, as its address is often rubbish, instead of something in the 192.168.0.0 range that I am expecting. I have a laptop, running the equivalent 32 bit version of Vista, and this has no problems connecting.

I'm currently having issues connecting to my home's wireless network. All devices besides my laptop are connecting to it just fine though. The problem only started this morning, and I've already reset my wireless adapter, computer, and router a couple times. This has happened once before, and I just wiped my PC because I couldn't find a solution. I'd prefer to not do that again.

It's an Acer Aspire v5-571. Thanks in advance

EDIT: I just did a system restore and everything works fine now. This can be closed

A:Can't connect to wireless network

Look through any recent windows updates to see if around the same time an update was installed, this problem occurred: Windows Update - View Update History Details

Did anything get installed or an application update recently? Don't forget to check your antivirus for recent updates. Some 3rd party antivirus softwares can at times conflict with windows due to a faulty update, etc. Please let me know which AV you are using.

Follow this tutorial to see if it helps you in any way: Internet Troubleshooting Guide

DO make sure every driver is updated (using another computer and a USB drive, for example). If every driver is updated and you still experience problems, try installing a previous version of the wireless LAN driver.

A:Cannot Connect To Wireless Network

i have moved you post to a thread of its own

Is this an intermittent problem or will the machine not connect at all to wireless

whats the make and model of the PC

can we see an xirrus screen shot

Is this the only PC with a problem - do other devices connected work OK - if so how are they connected to the router - wireless or wired

have you tried connecting to the router by cable - does it work

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot etc
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

I'm having a problem connecting to my work network.

My office currently runs and unsecured, unencrypted wireless network (I know, I know, I'm not in charge.) I sometimes use my personal laptop (XP/sp2) but can't connect to this network. The wireless card can see the network and the signal is excellent, but when I click on 'connect' it attempts for a while, hangs, and then returns to the 'available network' list (no errors or pop-ups, it just stops looking) and shows the network as 'available' and 'unsecured.'

Two days ago I installed a new hard-drive in my boss' Dell laptop, installed XP, and as soon as it booted it found the network and connected fine (no changing of settings at all.)

So I'm confused - I have two laptops sitting 3 feet from each other, running the same OS's, and an unsecure, unencrypted network, and only one connect.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Hey guys,
I am currently connected to the internet through a model, that is connected to a wireless router, that is connected directly to my computer. The internet connection on this computer is fine. However when I try to go online on my other computer through a wireless connection it will not allow me to access the internet. Even though the signal strength is excellent is a pop up comes up and says there is "limited to no connectivity." Furthermore when I look to why this computer can not connect, it says "This problem occured because the network did not assign a network address to the computer." After reading this I attemped to "repair" the connection, only to receive another pop up that says, "Windows could not repair the wireless connection because because it can not renew the IP address." If anyone has any clue as to what the heck is going on, your help and support would be greatly appreciated.

Very Confused and Frustrated,
Mike

We have 3 computers connected to our wanadoo wireless router. 2 run off special wireless adapters and the newest uses its own 'RT73 USB Wireless LAN card' All the computers used to be able to connect to the wireless signal.
After Configuring the signal to use WEP encryption only the computer without the special wireless adapters can't connect. It can find the network and says 'limited or no connectivity'. I've tried clicking repair but it says it can't renew the IP address. I've tried reseting the router but it doesn't help.
 

A:Can't connect to wireless network

You need to configure that card to use the same WEP encryption configuration as the router.

And if your router supports it, WPA with a long, random passkey is much more secure than WEP.
