Is there a freeware program to view WZC profile information from the command line? I found one that allows you to display the profiles themselves, however to display the profile properties I haven't found one.

I could also use direct registry edits if I had to, using the reg command. The problem being, that it would appear that the information is stored in binary format, which I've got no idea how to even manually pull the profile name from. The only thing that information seems to give me, is the abillity to later manipulate the order of the networks, that is maybe. I don't need that part yet, but will later on. I guess, since viewing the profiles is so slow, direct registry edits "might" be preffered. This is WZC I'm concerned about, not any third party utillities. I'm using Windows XP, and it's SP2 or later.
 

A:View Wireless Network Properties from the Command Line

Researching further, it looks like nobody knows how to pull the information from the registry. I've got Windows XP, so netsh wlan won't work. It looks like this is leaving me now with 2 solutions to get some of this information.

Solution 1: Use some kind of programming API to get the information and display it from the command line. I've therefore heard that there seems to be an interface called the WZC native API. If that's true, how would you use it in AutoIt or in a BATCH file or in a VBScript? I've never used anything like it before, so I need detailed explanations of what the code does, except for that doesn't mean I need to know all the internals of every function. But I need to know how to use it. I know BATCH files well, but I don't really know the full VBScript or AutoIt languages, though I can make some of it's code out anyway.

Solution 2: Somehow maybe use AutoIt in another way to read the properties from the dialog box. I know from research that this is probably possible, but I don't know how to do it. And what I need to do, is hide all that visible clicking going on, even if I'm doing some clicking. That is - hide it from the end user. It's nice to see it moving on the screen, but I'd rather not see it if I were the end user, in this case.

Now keep in mind, that at this point, all I'm trying to implement in these programs, is a way to do exactly what you can already do in Windows XP by default (b... Read more

One of the user in the network can not enable or disable his local area network connection. Every time he connects his laptop after undocking it, it asks him for administrator credentials. Its a vista machine in a domain environment. User is added to the poweruser group but still can not make changes to the connection. Other users dont need to punch in admin password when they hookup to the docking station/network.

Any suggestions? thanks

Hi all,

I'm setting up a computer for public access to a local site (repository). There are two accounts:

1.admin account: running a virtual machine as server for the local site. I need access to LAN through wired ethernet in this account
2.public account: the account for the users to navigate the repository. I need to disable the LAN access and just enable internet access through the public wireless interface.

I thought I could just disable ethernet card for the public account on the Group policies, but I didn't find out the way to do it. I've created a group policy for the public account; but under "user configuration -> administrative templates -> network -> network connections" I only see options for enable/disable LAN properties, settings, etc., and not LAN access itself.

---> Is it possible to disbable hardware for specifc users? In that case I could just disable the wired card driver for public user

Thanks in advance!

A:Disable LAN connection for specific user/enable wireless only

Ok, I go again (trying to do my best in english!) :

-There are two interfaces in the network:
a- LAN-> access through wired connection. Only for enabled MACs on the router
b- Public access to internet -> through wireless connection. For everyone.

-I cannot use router rules (for instance blocking MAC address, time settings, etc.) as far as I need both connections enabled at the same time, any time: wired for admin account and wireless for standard user account. Both users could use the computer at any time.

-I know I can set up preferred connections, but what I actually want is to prevent any way for the standard user to get connected to the LAN.

-On Group policies I've already disabled access to network settings and IE options for the standard user.

I appreciate any help (and really need it). Thanks!!

Let me preface this by saying I know next to nothing about computers, so please provide detailed advice if you choose to advise.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 running with Windows XP and a Linksys Wireless-G broadband wireless router WRT54G2.

The wireless was working fine yesterday. Tonight when I turned it on, I couldn't get an internet connection. The modem is ok because I have a connection with an ethernet wire.

When I go into the Network Connections window, I see that Wireless Network Connection is Disabled. Don't understand that. I didn't disable it.

I right click on it and press Enable, but all I get is a "Wireless Network Connection" window that says "Enabling..." and then "Connection Failed."

I ran the trouble shooter, but the suggestions either didn't apply (my hardware is ok with this machine because it has run on it before) or were so involved I was afraid to attempt them and cause a bigger problem. Disabling and changing settings makes me nervous.

Any ideas about what I can do to enable this wireless network connection?

I looked up some old posts on this and tried to follow them, but I didn't get the prompts mentioned under Wireless Network Connection Properties. For example, when I clicked

I don't understand why this has happened all of the sudden. Although I have Norton running and just ran a full scan, I suspect I have a virus because things have been sluggish the last couple of days and the ... Read more

I bought a NetGear N900 Wifi Dual Band USB Adapter in order for my desktop to connect to our router wirelessly. My desktop is a Win7 Home Premium.

My initial problem started when the adapter would not install correctly from the CD-ROM (I followed the instructions very carefully). I kept getting error messages that the adapter could not be found. However, I was able to pull the driver from the CD and was told it installed successfully.

Here's my main problem: Under Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings, the Wireless Network Connection remains Disabled (or greyed out). Anytime I try to enable it, Windows will saying "Enabling ... Enabled" but it STILL remains Disabled.

Does anyone have any recommendations on getting this fixed?

Here's what I've done below:
-After the first unsuccessful install, I uninstalled NETGEAR and all its related pieces, uninstalled my antivirus (AVG), turned off Windows FW, rebooted, and attempted another clean NETGEAR installation. No success (and received the same console error message that the adapter could not be found).
-I also uninstalled third-party programs and turned off unnecessary services in the background. Still no success.
-Tried installing on different USB ports. Again, no success.
-Even had a live chat session with NETGEAR support but ended up being told that they exhausted all their support measures and recommended I return the product and get a new one. But this is the third DIFFERENT ada... Read more

Hi everyone, I am working on a friends HP laptop that suddenly lost it's ability to see any networks at all. When I try to enable it in network and sharing it stays disabled. Just to be sure it wasn't hardware related I ran a ubuntu live cd and was able to connect with no problems. I tried updating the drivers,installing and reinstalling the network card with no luck. I also tried letting windows repair it but it says there may be driver problems. Any ideas?

So the other afternoon we had a freak power outage, my PC was on and connected to a surge protector. So once the power came back on, literally like 5 minutes later, I rebooted my PC and have had Wireless issues ever since.

My PC is custom built with a Netgear WG311V3 PCI Wireless card in it.

When I boot up, it tells me I am connectied to our wireless network, but no websites will load. I check for wireless networks but my PC tells me none are in range. I have had this issue before so I goto Network Connections and Disable Wireless Network Connection 2, my wireless card, and then when I goto Enable it I get this error:

Connection Failed.

I have no idea what to do, could the power outage have fried my wireless card?

Hi,

I have been using Windows 7 for a little over a week and today while exploring it some more I noticed I have two network connections listed under Network Connections.

(1) Local Area Connection -- Realtek PCIe GDE Family Controller

and

(2) Wireless Network Connection -- 802.11n Wireless LAN Card

The only computer in the house is mine so I am curious if I can just disable the '802.11n Wireless LAN Card' without causing any problems?

Thanks and regards,

A:Can I disable my Wireless Network Connection?

If your computer is connected via a cable there are generally no problems with disabling the wireless connection.

You can do this from Control Panel|Network and Sharing Centre, Click on change adapter settings, right click the wireless connection, left click on disable.

If your computer is a laptop then there is usually a button on the side or front that will also disable wireless.

I use my Win Vista laptop at home and the office.

I use wifi at home and wired lan at the office. My laptop does have any settings in the TCP/IP properties. Everything is at default.

Every time I I try to use it at the office I have to disable and reenable the Lan connection from Manage networks, otherwise I do not get Net connectivity (except local lan).

No problem at home.

Since everything is default it picks up my IP from DHCP and gets other settings same way.

Why do I have to Disable and Enable the Lan connection before it starts accessing the Net.
 

A:Enable /disable Lan connection

If you put the laptop to Sleep or Hibernation before disconnecting the cable that may the cause. Try disconnecting the cable first.

The adapter/computer may not be "signing off" the network properly. Make sure you have the latest ethernet driver.

If the laptop is not rebooted from one day to the next, and
the work router or server is reset while the laptop is away, and
the lease time is long enough for the computer to think it still deserves the "old" IP, then that is a problem. Ask the network administrator to shorten the lease time, or shut down when you transport the machine, or live with your work around.

Hi

How do I disable local area Connection properties for a standard use and for an administrator on a pc, users on my network keep changing the network adapter settings to allow them to have access to the internet. The users are a little tech savvy so by setting the adapter settings and just leaving out the default gateway and dns server address has not helped. I need to go deeper into windows network configuration to find a way to block them or find another way to prevent internet access. None of the users have email so they do not need access to mail either.

Thank you

To connect to the internet using my old IBM notebook 600e, I just boot up or come out of standby mode; click on browser (IE) and it's always ready to go. With the newer Lenovo T61, I must disable the connection before I go on standby, or problems usually result. When I come out of standby, I must enable connection; otherwise the little computer icon is missing from the lower right bar and there is no "repair connecytion option." If I click on "view available networks," none are found. Then it is difficult to get things going again. I use a siemens modem and a Belkin router, but doubt these are responsible as the 600e has no problem.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. I'd especially appreciate a list (however short or long) of possible things to check.

I know a similar thread was posted on this problem but following the directions in that thread did not help me.

Here's what I'm looking at. I'm running Win7 with a Lynksys Cable/DSL router and a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller. At start up, my wired internet connection is showing as no internet access. In order to gain internet, I must disable and then enable my local area connection. There are four computers in total using this router. Mine is the only one using Win7 and the only one not able to access the internet at start up. I can see the other computers on the network at start up. So this is definitely a computer specific issue.

I've checked the Device Manager at start up and there is no conflict showing with the Broadcom controller. I've checked the device driver and it shows that I am up to date. The file version is Broadcom 10.100.4.0

What is the easiest way to disable a PC's ability to surf the web and than enable a PC's ability to surf the web, all without the user's knowing how to enable it when it is disabled?

Here is the situation. I have two kids who do some school work on separate PC's. This school work does not require them to have Internet access. I want to make sure that while they are supposed to be working on school work they cannot access the web. But I want to easily be able to enable this access when needed.

Our PC's are a mix of Windows 2000 Pro and XP Pro. They are networked together through a D-Link wireless router (they are wired into the Ethernet jacks on the built-in switch) for Internet access. This is all home networking so there are no domain controllers, group policies, etc. that can be used.

In your opinion, what's the easiest way to disable/enable web surfing in a simple home networking setup?
 

A:Disable/Enable web surfing on home network

In my opinion, just a basic firewall with the proper settings can allow and deny internet permissions to one or all computers on a home network. The ones I have personally used and found that are easy to control are Zone Alarm and Norton Internet Security

One problem is that her network card loses its connection to the Internet (though it still sees the rest of the network) and to get it working I must disable and then enable it.

I'd prefer a work around like a way to disable and enable the network card automatically at startup. Anyone know of a way that might work?

Only recently I have had issues with internet drop outs which I thought were to do with my router but
if I disable the Local area connection/adapter and then enable it again the internet starts working.

I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled with a new one but it still seems to happen maybe twice a day.

I have a z87 g45 motherboard, I'm not sure if its the killer network manager that comes with the driver
that may be causing problems

I have a Lenovo desktop with Windows 8. The past couple weeks or so I have started having issues with the wireless internet, where the signal will flash an exclamation point stating that the network is "limited". This may happen once every couple hours or more than once per minute. If I go to the network adapter and disable it and then immediately enable it again, the internet works fine. Running the Troubleshooting program on the wireless results in a message saying that the default pathway was not available and that it reset my Wifi adapter.

I was assuming that the problem would be with the computer, since resetting the desktop's adapter fixes the problem and I don't have to touch the router. However, I've also noticed that both my iPad and smartphone, which also bounce off that same router, are having issues with wireless connectivity. And for both, the fix is the same as for the computer. I just shut the Wifi off and switch it back on, and it works afterward.

So then I started thinking the problem would be with the router, except that the three devices do not always lose connectivity at the same time. The computer loses it the most often, followed by the phone and then the iPad. Sometimes I have lost connectivity simultaneously on two or all of the devices at once, but the most common problem is that only the computer loses it, while the iPad and phone are still able to connect.

Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this issue? Wo... Read more

Running Windows Vista, and a Netgear WG311V3 wireless card.

I head that if you untick QoS in Properties (next to Internet Protocol etc) then your connection would be faster; I've been having problems so I tried it.

All it did was remove "Wireless Network Connection" from my Network Connections - there are now only 2 icons there - 1 for the wired connection (plugged in my ethernet cable to write this) and "Internet Conection".

I have no idea how to get it back, if anyone knows how that'd be great. I've since tried reinstalling my wireless card, didn't help. I can't even configure my wireless card now for some reason.

But that's off-topic - how do I get "Wireless Connection" back into my Network Connections?

Regards in advance,

Chris

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.

My netbook is running Windows 7 Starter. It is an MSi U135

At random intervals (can be every few minutes to every couple of hours) my connection will show a 'limited connection' and I have to manually disable then enable the network adapter. As soon as I have re-enabled it again the internet will connect. Sometimes it will force me to restart the netbook for it to connect again.

I have been searching for fixes for a few days now and have tried the following:

Disabled firewall.
Uninstalled antivirus.
Reinstalled the network adapter.
Completely removed the adapter driver from the system, then downloading one from the Msi website and installing the new driver.
Changed the router channels to a few different channels.
Made sure the box which says something like 'allow this device to turn off to save power' is unchecked.
I have tried the ipconfig /renew in CMD as an admin.
Also tried the ROUTE 0.0.0.0 command (read somewhere this could fix it)
I ensured I didn't have 'bonjour' on the system as I have read this can cause it too.
I even tried reinstalling the OS too.

None of the other netbooks in the house does this. (One running Windows 7 Starter and one on XP)

Any ideas?

All help is appreciated. Thank you.

I noticed that my PS3 plays games allot better online when my PC's wireless adapter is disabled and it cannot connect to the network.

However my PC is always on and it a task to do this every time I want to play online and then re enable once I'm done playing to resume my PC's downloads.

If I can create a desktop short cut to disable/enable wireless adapter, and link it to a hotkey on my keyboard my life would be almost hassle free.

any form of command line (i think) or .exe or shortcut or anything would help.

Port?g? R700-184
Part Number : PT311E-02Y01JEN

Hi,

Can anyone tell me how to toggle wireless on/off using an external keyboard for the R700 whilst it is on it's docking station?

We only seem to be able to toggle wireless using the built in keyboard (Fn + F8) key.

Also, is there anyway that wireless can be set to off as default at boot up? Is this something that can be done through the BIOS or perhaps by tweaking a registry key?

Grateful for any assistance.

:-)

A:Enable/disable wireless whilst Laptop is docked (External Keyboard)

may seem like a silly question, but why can't you simply use the laptops keyboard????? or is it just a niggly type issue that you'd rather use external one?

unfortunatley the R700 doesnt have a hardware switch for the wireless so its purely mapped to the Fn key which is a toshiba function, so an external k/b is unlikely to be able to replicate it

you can always disable the wireless through W7 network and sharing centre -> change adaptor settings, so few clicks with the mouse or even shortcut it to taskbar/start menu for easy access.

I'm running a Toshiba Satellite L300 with Windows Vista Home Premium x64 and a T6400 processor. I haven't had any connection problems untill now. The problem I'm having now is Windows cannot find any wireless networks. I can connect through a Ethernet cable but not wirelessly. Another thing that bothers me is that I can't enable the network connection in the network connections folder. I don't know why this is happening suddenly as I haven't made any changes involving my network settings at all. I've looked it up on the internet but couldn't find anything that would help me.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on a custom built PC. I have a Zonet 1642D wireles card that I had used fine for almost a year.

For about the past two weeks my internet would suddenly drop about once a day and it would say there were no wireless connections available. I would have to restart my computer and then everything would be fine.

Well on Friday it happened and I got fed up, so I uninstalled the wireless card and reinstalled, and now I can't enable the wireless connection at all in the Network Connections menu. It will say "Enabling..." and then "Enabled" but it doesn't actually enable.

I run the diagnostic tool on the Network Adapter and I get the message "There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter." In the detailed information "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter". I've tried reinstalling the driver, I've downloaded the driver from the Zonet website, and I've tried rolling back drivers. I've tried a system restore to when it did work, and I'm getting nothing. Anyone have any ideas? Would greatly appreciate any input, and thank you in advance.

Would really appreciate some help here as I am getting the run-around from ISP, Microsoft and Compaq.

I have a Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium Compaq Presario that I have put downstairs and am trying to connect to the internet via a Netcomm NP545 USB stick. The USB stick worked fine on my old computer which ran XP but it won't work on the Vista model.

The USB stick is compatible with my version of Vista, the problem is that when I go to the network settings and it shows my wireless connection, it is disabled. If I click enable it goes on to say enabling...enabled but it remains disabled.

The USB stick works on my other two computers one running XP, the other running Windows 7. And am at a total loss as to what could be preventing it from working.

Second, when I open a web browser it is going to www.nowfind.net.

Third, if I click on my Wireless Network Connection properties the window disappers without opening the properties.

So for so more detailed information on what I know about what is going on.

1. The WebSiteViewer has installed in C:\Program Files\WebSiteViewer. There are five files in that directory, 125135.ban, 125235.dd, 125235.dlr, 125235.exe and 125235.ico. There is also a shortcut on my desktop and a shortcut on my Start Menu for the 125235.exe. There is also a misb.exe file in my root directory (C:\) that I believe is related as it has the same icon. There is a process with an image name of 125235.dlr running. I started out by manually deleting all of this stuff (and manually shutting down the process). I have also tried Spybot and Adware.

I have up until a few days ago been able to modify and save my network properties ok. I connected a new DisplayLink USB docking station that lead to an update of some sort. I believed this to be to do with associated drivers. I let this go ahead and it may well have nothing to do with the problems I have been having.

First of all I couldn't even see the IP parameters and kept getting an error as follows:

"In Order to Configure TCP/IP, You Must Install and Enable a Network Adapter Card"

The wired and wireless was working in environments where I could use DHCP so I was confident the hardware was ok. Uninstalling the drivers and then updating them has got me passed this problem so I can see and edit the IP parameters. However now they are never saved. I edit them, close the window, re-edit them and they are back to automatic settings! I need to use static settings in the office.

So far as I can see there are 2 possibilities:

1. I don't have permissions to save these settings, wherever they are stored. But I have administrator permissions. Where are the settings stored? I have saved them before. How can I get access to be able to save them again?
2. Something else is overwriting the settings. How do I find out what and stop it?

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Or a way to diagnose/solve my problem.

Thanks in advance

Hi, a few pieces of advice for you.

Make sure your drivers are up to date (even thought the company's gone bust it may use generic drivers)

Try enabling the wireless card then restarting your PC.

Make sure your PC is up to date (Especially make sure you have SP2 installed)

See if there are any options to do with your Wireless card in the BIOS.

Specs: WIN XP Pro vers 2002 SP3
Motherboard: AMD Athlon XP 2000+ at 1.66 GHz, 2GB RAM

I'm at a hotel with wireless DSL service, which I connect to via a Belkin USB wireless NIC, and also on a LAN with family members. My PC is connected to the LAN via cable from my NIC (Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC #5) to a Linksys wireless-G router.

This setup has been working fine, though I can't be on Internet and LAN at the same time. But today, for no apparent reason (I haven't made any changes), the system has been freezing entirely (i.e. no mouse, no Ctrl-Alt-Del response) every time at the point when it actually enables my LAN connection (via the Realtek NIC & cable).

I'm pretty sure it's at the point when it is enabled, because both ways I did this (via a shortcut to the network connection and via Manage Devices) the system froze right at the point it usually says it is "Enabled", but before actually giving me that message.

Let me know if you need more specifics to solve this. TIA for any help you can give!

Hello everyone,

I'm running into a problem with an uncle's custom desktop where the wireless network is refusing to enable, even after enabling the connection.

Here is a brief history;

1) Buy and install a Belkin wireless USB adapter. Wireless networks is enabled, but not picking up any SSID. Insure WLAN auto-config is enabled and no 3rd party wireless managers are installed.

2) My Uncle returns the Belkin and gets a Linksys by Cisco USB wireless adapter. Wireless network connection is disabled. Attempted to run the installation utility for the USB adapter, however it errors out stating the windows wireless manager isn't managing the wireless network. I went into services.msc, disabled WLAN auto-config, and re-enabled with the same issue. I thought something with Belkin may have hi-jacked the wireless management so I ran revo-uninstaller against the Belkin to remove the application and any related registry keys. Unfortunately the issue persists.

3) Even after telling him that it isn't an issue with with the USB adapters, he returned it for a NETGEAR PCI adapter. Again same issue, wireless networks show disabled, enabling the connection says it is successful, but the connection never enabled.

One thing I didn't mention is that the devices are seen in device manager, so its not an issue with the devices not being detected.

I'm a novice to this wireless networking. I finally am using my wireless network to two XP desktops and a laptop VISTA. They are working fine but I have been around the 'net trying to figure out how to get some security. I can see my neighbors' wireless networks so I know mine could be accessed easily. I found the network properties on my VISTA and tried changing them to a WPA-personal but I get an error saying these settings are not correct. I installed the router on my XP first but I cannot find the network connection in my network places and I have no idea how to access the router to change security settings. So just how do I get this network 'password protected' with this community of computers? In case it matters, only the laptop VISTA is actually a wireless connection.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate, SP1, on an HP G60-120US laptop.  I have an Atheros AR5009 wireless adapter.
I have no problems with internet access.  However, in Network and Sharing Center I left click on "change adapter settings", right click on Wireless Network Connection, and then left click on Properties I get an error box that says "An unexpected error occurred."  I tried to do a clean boot using MSCONFIG but that did not work.  I tried to uncheck the "Load startup items" box but after restarting it was shaded solid again.  I then tried to check the "Diagnostic Startup" radio button and then click on "apply" but it jumps right back to selective startup.  Can you please help me clean my laptop?

I am trying to reserve an IP for my computer, but when I went to the
properties of my wireless network connection, the connection properties
window is missing everything except for Client for Microsoft Networks. Even
the connect using field has nothing in it. The wireless connection is
working, but I can't get to the TCP/IP protocol to reserve the IP instead of
using DHCP. Here is an image of the issue.

An screen cap of my wireless network connection properties can be seen here:

I recently bought a laptop computer and connected it via a wireless connection to my desktop. I tested it out and all was well. I now want to sell the laptop and make sure it can not use my internet connection. How can I be sure the buyer can't access my internet wireless portal?

Hello,

I am using Win XP SP2 and am unable to disable my Local Area Connection. When I try I get the following message:

"Error Disabling Connection:
It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection may be using one or more protocols that do not support Plug-and-Play, or it may have been initiated by another user or system account."

Now, the reason I am trying to disable it is because it seems this issue has a lot to do with, and could be the cause of, another problem I am having. This problem is that every time I restart the computer I loose network and internet access and the only way I can recover it is by first uninstalling my Anti Virus & Spy software (which also has a firewall and internet shield) and second by restarting the PC. Even without the Anti Virus & Spy software, and the system restarted with good network and internet access, I cannot disable the Local Area Connection. When I reinstall the Anti Virus & Spy software and restart again, the network works perfectly fine but only until I restart the second time, with the Anti Virus & Spy software installed. Afterwards, when when the computer boots up, access to the network and to the internet is lost again... This is very frustrating. I have had to uninstall and reinstall the Anti Virus & Spy software regularly in order to get around this problem and continue my work safely. I am hoping you can help me with this.

I am using Microsoft driver for the above device. Drivers loaded ok, device manager seems to think it's fine. Device seems just fine (blue light flashing as it should). Anti-virus/external firewall (Zonealarm Exteme) etc all shut down (to find problem).
Primary ethernet connection disabled. Network and sharing Center (Change adapter settings) allows me to enable, says enabling, then enabled, however it never changes status and remains disabled.
Netgear driver (latest for win7 64 which I use) installs fine until final part 'detecting adapter' which fails - never gets there and needs to be forcefully terminated. I've removed the Netgear software entirely.
I've changed USB ports and done just about as much as I can. From a management point of view I hate windows7. To get to simple information it is far more difficult than previous OS's. As an example, I have no idea how to get my OS version number. I know
it is Windows7 64Bit Home edition but thats all I can say.
The network adapter works perfectly under XP-sp3 and this is dual-boot machine so hardware is obviously identical (apart from SSD boot for Win7 and HDD for XP).
Any help appreciated - or any questions I can answer to help me out!
Thanks, Dave.

Hiya

The Network Connection Manager (NCM) provides a controlling
mechanism for all network connections managed by a host system.
Among the functions of the NCM is to call a handler routine
whenever a network connection has been established.

By design, this handler routine should run in the security context
of the user. However, a flaw could make it possible for an
unprivileged user to cause the handler routine to run in the
security context of LocalSystem, though a very complex process.
An attacker who exploited this flaw could specify code of his or
her choice as the handler, then establish a network connection
in order to cause that code to be invoked by the NCM. The code
would then run with full system privileges.

Maximum Severity Rating: Critical

Every so often (it could be 5 minutes or an hour) I lose my connection. Then I have to disable and enable my wi-fi adapter (a Linksys USB adapter) to get it to work again. Usually that works until the next disconnection. However, sometimes even when I disable and enable it won't work for a few minutes of waiting and disabling and enabling again. I can connect to either a 5ghz connection or a more standard connection (I can't remember the ghz.. I think it's 2.2-2.4 or something), but I have the same problem either way. I've been having this problem for the past couple weeks or so. Before that I had the exact same connection set up and didn't have the problem.

Although my laptop Dell Vostro running XP would connect with no problem to my belkyn wireless router with no problem. I couldn't find wireless routers in my selection when I would go to a friend's house for example..

I found the solution to that:Start -> run -> typed "services.msc" -> and made sure that wireless zero configuration was "start" / enable...
I close that window and go into run -> "ncpa.cpl" -> ok -> view available connetions then refresh. I go to network settings ( I am in the wireless network window at this point), click "change advanced setting" ->advanced --> windows network --> and I click "use windows to configure my wireless network settings"...

After that, I can connect to the internet, but it keeps disconnecting after just a few seconds...

Reading on a solution, it says download updated drives...but I went to dell an the latest drivers are from 2007 or 2008... So there are no drivers to update.. At one point a few months ago I know I caused this when I went in and deleted all my neighbors's network connections. I did something wrong, b/c not even my own belkyn would show up, even though I connected fine...

Any ideas? Should I just d/l the drivers?

Thank you

A:Internet connection keeps disconnecting / WAS can't view wireless networks..

Won't hurt to reinstall the drivers . . even if they are not real new.

After that, thenext time is does not work, Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

Hi,I have a question on the disabling of auto-connect function of ThinkVantage for one particular profile. I have not been able to find the answer online despite multiple searches, thus I hope you can assist me on this.

I am currently using a Lenovo T400 Thinkpad with Windows XP, though I am unable to find the version of ThinkVantage Access Connections. I have a ThinkVantage profile saved for connecting to my home router, which can be connected using LAN or WLAN. However, whenever I get disconnected from internet (LAN cable accidentally became unplugged, router disconnected for a minute, etc), my ThinkVantage will automatically connect to wireless and render my LAN connection useless with the "Limited or no connectivity message". When this happens, I have to manually disconnect from wireless using ThinkVantage and replug my LAN cable. It's mighty annoying when it disconnects 5 times in half an hour (I have a horrible ISP).

So my question is, is there a way I can set ThinkVantage to disable auto-connect to wireless when I'm in this particular profile? I have searched around the options and tried to disable the Location Switching option, but it didn't work.

Thanks in advance.

Basically I have a Gateway laptop it's about 3 yrs old, has had some issues in the past and is now operating on a bootleg copies of Windows tablet XP. I have been connecting to the wireless router that is set up in our house, but there were some connectivity issues recently and my mother reinstalled it and set up the network all over again. Now I cannot connect with my laptop. The network will show up as available to connect and when I click on it, it asks for the WEP key, which my mother set and I type it in and nothing happens. It doesn't give me an error message that I typed in the wrong key. The box simply goes away and I stay unconnected. Nothing on my laptop was changed in anyway from when it was connecting to when it wasn't. There is another Newer Dell Laptop in the house and that can connect to the wireless network and work without issue. I'm at a total loss as to what I should do and its becoming quite a sore topic in our house. Please Help if you can. The router is a belkin router if that helps at all.

Hi all,

So I have two internet connections.

The wireless is one I share with my roommates and is fast. The wired NIC connects to a router which has slower internet. The reason I connect to the wired router is so my PC can talk to a linux machine, which I use for some data downloading/analysis.

I want to disable internet from the wired connection but keep the ability to talk to other machines on the wired network. I just changed the IPv4 settings and deleted the DNS server information. Is this the best way to do so? I want the wireless to provide internet.

Thanks!

Hi everyone. I'm having a problem with my laptop, I used to be able to share my internet when I created a wireless ad-hoc network. (I used this network to connect my mobile phone via WIFI and use my laptop's internet on the phone) Unfortunately I've only manage to do that the first 2 days, after that when I try to create a ad-hoc wireless network, it doesn't show the option "Internet Sharing" any more.
I had to make it work again, so I've restored the PC to a previous date. And it worked, but only for the first 2 days again.
Does anybody have a clue why the "Internet Sharing" option disappears from the network creation manager, after a while????
Thanks in advance.
