Not able to connect WIFI network.Device or resource not responding

Q: Not able to connect WIFI network.Device or resource not responding

Hi Team,

I am using hotel wifi network and was able to use it quite nicely. But suddenly my network started showing "No Internet Access" though it was connected.

Diagnostics gives an error "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS Server) is not responding."

I am still able to connect to same wifi properly with my other laptop.

Can anybody please help me to solve this problem?

Thanks,
Jenish

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Try removing all your wireless network profiles then reconnect to the desired Wi-Fi network, if it's encrypted make sure to type the correct pass-phrase.

Im writing from my mobile so its short. This problem started yesterday night, the only way I fixed it was by shutting down and waking up today and the problem was gone.
I only use wireless. I have access to three networks, two are pwd the third is unsecure. Whenever I connect to one, i get the Limited access icon.
If I go to my Network Sharing Center the red X is after the network icon. And I get multiple reworded problems. But they ALL talk about my DNS. It says this.

Well I'm on Windows 8 and my computer has been running fine until yesterday. Randomly at around 8:00, my internet shut itself and it wouldn't work. I tried resetting the router and such but nothing worked. My computer can connect to the internet connection,
but when I boot up Google Chrome it will not work. So I did some troubleshooting and eventually it said this "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection". And it's not only my internet browser that won't work. Other apps like Skype
won't connect either. After looking at another thread, I tried resetting the settings on Internet Explorer and changing the Proxy thing but nothing worked. Someone also suggested downloading Hitman, but that was stupid considering I couldn't even connect to
the internet. I had Windows Defender scan my computer and it said there was nothing wrong. So I'm not sure what is up. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

A:Cannot connect to Internet. "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection"

Make sure other device connected to your internet don't have similar issue
is there any changes before this issue happen? install, reinstall, windows update, HW changes, router setting or environment changes
just try at safe mode with networking, if its fine at safe mode with networking, than something to do with 3rd party software, antivirus, firewall ect. Try to restore your PC using restore point
if this issue also persist at safe mode, its considering driver or hardware failure (try to update driver, reinstall or run basic TS regarding WLan issue)

Hi,My brand new Yoga 720-15 IKB doesn't connect to my workplace wifi network which is a Mikrotik network. It does though connect to my home network or a mobile hotspot and works fine with them. I have installed all Windows 10 updates and Lenovo Companion updates. I have manually updated wifi card driver, I have also tried deleting network card and installing it again - but no success. Still doesn't connect to this one particular network in my workplace.To make it stranger my coworker has the same brand new Yoga 720, the only difference is that mine Yoga is grey and his is platinium color. We discovered also that two, supposedly the same computers  have different network cards (he has Intel, I have Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A.

I have a strange and unfortunate problem. I have a Netgear JWNR router located in my living room. The wifi there works well on my laptop, but as soon as I move over to the bedroom (not far away) I lose the signal and can't connect to the internet. The strange thing is that all other laptops or phones I've tried this with can easily connect to the wifi in there, it's just a problem with my computer. I have windows 10, but have tried it with another laptop running windows 10 and there was no problem.
This is really frustrating since my desk is in the bedroom and I need to have the internet there to study.

I have tried everything I could think of and nothing works, I would really appreciate some help!

I tried running a long ethernet cable to the bedroom and connecting the router there, now I get internet signal there but not in the living room so it seems like it is a problem with signal range or something like that, but I don't understand why it only happens with my laptop!

Hi,
I set up a wireless bridge with my TP-Link TL-WR1043ND to get better signal in my flat. (landlord provides internet via wifi AP but I have bad reception, therefore the wireless bridge) I works flawlessly. I can connect my android phone and my PC to it. Recently I tried to connect with a HP Stream 11 (Realtek RTL8723BE) to my TP-Link and it refuses to connect. Password is correct. If I connect to landlords AP directly it works and I am able to ping my TP-Link but I cannot access its web interface either. The HP Stream 11 uses Win 8.1 but this shouldnt matter afaik since my TP-Link acts as an AP.
I have no idea what could be going wrong. Any ideas???

I'm having some issues with connecting to my laptop using other devices over WiFi since moving to Virgin Media. I'm trying to connect to various services on my laptop using my Palm Pre phone (I've also tried using an iPod Touch).

I'm trying to run apps such as VLC Remote, Web UI, and a WiFi Media Sync App. None will establish a connection to the laptop. In the case of uTorrent WebUI for example, I have the address http://192.168.0.102:8080/gui/ which allows access. In my laptop browser, entering this comes up with the username and password window, as expected. However, doing so on my phone results in an "Unable to make connection," error.

I've tried disabling Windows Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials as well as Spybot S&D. I've tried opening the ports in the router (D-Link DIR-615), and verifying the port remains open, even after re-activating the aforementioned programs. Whatever I do, I just can't get the phone to connect as I want.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how I could go about sorting this out?

So I'm trying to figure out a device that is listed on my wifi network. The device hostname changes from Iphone-1 all the way to iPhone-12 in sequential order, but the MAC address and IP address stays the same. The IP address for it has more numbers than the other phones that are connected. For example, my iphone IP address is structured 00.0.0.00 but the unknown iPhone device is 00.0.0.000.
I'm not sure if it's possible to have multiple SIM cards for one phone for different carriers, but I'm wondering if this device is trackable or I can find out if this connection is being used from a phone already on our network. There is also a new device connected occasionally that is Arcadyen-E51D that I have no idea what it is. If anybody knows what this could possibly be or where I can look up the info from the IP address and/or MAC address, that would be helpful as well!
Desperate to figure this out! Thank you

Not sure if this the right place to ask but I need some help.

Okay for some reason I am unable to connect to my wifi network. It was working fine Monday morning before I left for work, but when I came back I got a message saying cannot connect. Everyone else's laptops and tablets are working just fine. It is just my laptop. I've been trying to fix it for the past few days but I've gotten nowhere. I tried everything I know to do.
I tried:
Trouble shooting.
Resetting & unplugging the router.
Bringing back my laptop to an earlier date.
Checked & changed the wifi name & password.
I tried upgrading to windows 10 though I went back to 7 when it didn't work.
I even reset my laptop to its factory settings.

When I trouble shoot I get the following messages:
Cannot connect
Try unplugging the router for 10 seconds and try again
Cannot connect to hidden network (it's not hidden, I been to the little router modem page for it and it says it is not my laptop just thinks it is. Plus I can see it in my connection network list.)

My laptop runs fine for the most part and it can connect via cable, but I have to stay in the kitchen which is inconvenient for everyone. My laptop is quite old though at least 5 or 6 years. Might I need to buy a new one? I'd rather not if I can avoid it since like I said for the most part my laptop works fine.

I have disabled all adapters and enabled one at a time, nothing. I have uninstalled all adapters, rebooted the PC and reinstalled, nothing.
I have physically taken the adapter out of the PC and reinserted the card, nothing.
I have moved the antenna adapter to different USB slots, nothing.

Ok guys, I have a home office, work for a large corporation but home based. I have my own broadband and seperate router for gaming, surfing etc.
I also have a dedicated works laptop, which also has a dedicated WIFI router for purely work stuff.

Previously, I made it impossible for my "work" router to connect to my "home" laptop, for obvious reasons.
However, a couple of weeks ago, I needed to do some trouble shooting, and allowed the home lap top to access my work network.
I switched it back, but forgot to inhibit the 2 from linking.

So today, I'm looking at some ahem.. porn, didn't think much about it. A few hours later, I realise I'm connected to the "work" network.

So,

1)Is there a way to check in Windows 7 what router i was connected to at various times through WIFI?
2)Is it likely the ISP would advise my employer that I have looked at porn? - i didn't go through the work VPN, it's just a standard line from Zen into my house, by my company pay the bill direct.

appreciate any help!

Hi guys,
Let me explain my current situation before asking my question:
I have a Motorola Netopia7347-44 VDSL modem/router (with WiFi). The type of signal that I get from my ISP is analogue for phone, TV and intenet.
This modem has an input for the Internet connection (dynamic IP address) and provides the IP addresses and connection for the other devices connected to it (via WiFi or cable), such as the TV over IP box, laptops, iPads and smart phones.
I would like to implement content filtering on my WiFi network in order to avoid access to some websites, and my modem/router doesn´t provide this feature (or at least I can´t find it with my ISP´s configuration).

I thought about using OpenDNS, but since I have a dynamic IP address and I can´t install an updater on all the devices, then this solution didn´t work.

The next idea I have is getting a physical Firewall.
Question: I am wondering if I can just connect the Intenet cable (that comes from the splitter between phone and Internet) to the Firewall, then I connect a RJ-45 cable from the firewall to my existing modem/router and should that be all (besides configuring content filtering on the firewall)?

What should I take into account regarding the IP addresses? Should I enable the DHCP server in the firewall (I assume that most come with one), and disable the DHCP server in the modem?

Any guidance around this topic would be highly appreciated!!

Thanks.

 

A:How to connect firewall to my WiFi network

You seem to have the general idea. In fact, the idea would be to turn off DHCP on the old (wireless) router and enter the address of the new router as the old one's gateway. That's pretty much all it would 'generally' take. However, if you have VDSL, then you would need to purchase another VDSL router. In which case, you might as well just purchase one that has the wireless and not have to worry about all of the configuration issues.

However, I looked up the Netopia 7347-44 router and, from what I could find in the manual, it appears as though it does have a firewall already built into it. Check it out here: http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Video-Solutions/Products/Wireline%20Networks/Gateways_and_Routers/DSL_Gateways_and_Routers/7347-44_7357-44%20Netopia%20Voice%20Integrated%20Access%20Device%20Gateways/_Documents/_Static%20files/7347-44%20Data%20Sheet-556054-001-b.pdf Al right, that's not the *complete* manual, but it specifically states that it has 'Stateful Packet Inspection Firewall'. Might want to browse around in the router configuration utility and see what you can find.

If that's not your router, then you should be able to simply do as above and be good to go...

Good Luck!

My laptop is unable to connect to my home wifi network after it had ip conflict last night. I tried network troubleshooting it and it always ask me to investigate the router. I tried to reset the modem a few times but my laptop still could not connect to it while my roommates and my phone could. Then I remove my wifi profile and attempt to connect back to the network. However, the same problem persist.My laptop model is Asus A43S and having Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1. Anyone who can help me on this? I'm currently using my roommate's laptop for Internet.

I am moving from Virgin Media to BT and will no longer be able to connect my PC directly into the service using a cable as the new router is in another part of the house.

When I try and set up a new network connection, the PC cant see the wireless network and doesnt provide an option to connect to one. The WIFI is operating fine with various other devices connected to it.

My network adaptor is a realtek PCIe GBE family controller. I have downloaded the most recent drivers for this device. It occured to me that this device may not be a wifi adaptor, but I cant find anything to confirm that one way or the other on the web.

I suspect this is really simple and I am overlooking an obvious problem. Any help would be very welcome.

Hello,

I am trying to connect a Windows 10 laptop to a WiFi network that is using a MAC address filter. When I attempt to connect Windows reports that it is "Checking network requirements". Then it reports that it "Cannot connect to this network". I have been able to connect dozens of other devices running everything from iOS to Android to Windows 7 with no problems. However, this is my first Windows 10 attempt. I am not sure what I am missing.

Things I have tried so far:
I have triple checked the MAC address to make sure I have the correct one.Contacted the manufacturer of the router and applied the recommended firmware updates.Checked the laptop manufacturer for driver updates for the wireless adapterTurn off the MAC filter on the router

When I turn off the filter, the laptop connects immediately. That leads me to think that problem is a data entry error with the MAC address. To eliminate any possibility of error I cut and paste directly from what ipconfig reports as the MAC address for the wireless adapter. See below for details:

I can't connect connect to my home wireless network. It says I am connected but none of my browsers will load anything.
I can connect to other wireless networks that i have access to.
I can connect if i plug into the router directly
All of the other computers in my house connect just fine.
Any thoughts
 

A:Can't connect to Wifi on home network but everyone else can

I think its a security issue.
1) Check the password you put in and make sure its written correctly with the right case (lowercase/uppercase).
2) Disable any 3G/4G connections if you have any.

If that doesn't work giive me more information about your network:
1) General network layout (two computers, one laptop/one desktop, w/dsl modem to a residential gateway, etc)
2) Also, tell me what security mechanism you have on your wireless access point (WEP, WPA, WPA2). If you're using CCMP/AES and you have an older computer then you may not be able to use them together.

Hello, recently my father has had some trouble with every device he's been using, a laptop, a PC, and now his tablet cannot access to the wifi network. He only used them to watch youtube (due to an accident, he uses it to learn the language again). First it was the laptop, which was borrowed and had a password to access configuration so I couldn't check anything, we returned it, then an all-in-one PC, which worked fine for a month and suddenly it disconnected and cannot access to the network again, I'm now in another city so I can't personally check and try every solution, but we tried resetting the wifi adapter, all the network configuration through cmd, forgetting the network and trying to connect again, and.. I'm sorry, the windows helper, which of course asked to connect to the internet to solve connection issues. So we decided that we'll wait until I can think of something and he would be using youtube in his tablet (previously exclusively used for Duolingo), two days later the tablet can't access to the network.

So my questions would be ¿Is the network forbidding the devices? ¿Is it a simple configuration issue? ¿what can I do? and ¿Can the access to a website like youtube lock a device out of a regular home network? because when I was there I used youtube without any issue for a couple of weeks, my brother also used it, and my mother can connect with her phone.
 

A:Can't connect to wifi network after using youtube

First try power cycling (unplug for a minute or so) the router. Can any device connect to the wireless? Can any device connect via ethernet to the router?

I have two computers: a desktop with no WiFi (Ethernet only) and a laptop (Ethernet and WiFi).

Using Ethernet on both computers I am able to see and share files both ways and all works perfectly. Using WiFi on the laptop I can connect with the desktop machine but not the other way around.

The diagnostics on the desktop computer report "One or more network protocols are missing on this computer. Windows Sockets registry entries required for network connectivity are missing." I've tried all the standard methods to resolve this issue but nothing works. In any case, surely if this were the problem I wouldn't be able to use the Ethernet connection and the laptop wouldn't see my desktop machine?

Disabling the Kaspersky antivirus/firewall makes no difference.

At wit's end! Can anybody help?

Hi
I've searched the web endlessly trying to solve this problem with one of my laptops - without any luck at all. Hoping someone here is able to assist.

My main PC, 2 laptops, an iPhone and an iPad all connect to my home wifi network. All worked perfectly until 3 days ago.

The 2 laptops and my PC all run Windows 8.1 (all updated). 3 days ago my Toshiba Qosmio stopped being able to connect to my home network. All other devices still connect perfectly.

The Qosmio doesn't detect my wifi network. I immediately went to the network adapter's (Qualcomm Atheros) website and downloaded the latest driver. Installed it and for a brief (very brief) time it could once again detect and connect to the network. Last 3 days unable to either detect or connect.

It detects other networks fine, and has no problems connecting to any other network - except mine (doesn't even detect mine anymore). It connects to the iPhone (when used as a hotspot) without any issues.

I've uninstalled and re-installed the new driver, re-booted the wireless router (several times), re-set the router to factory settings, used Windows trouble shooter, checked & deleted the netsh profiles. Re-booted the laptop a dozen + times, disabled (& uninstalled software) for the laptop's Bluetooth.

It simply stopped working.

I've tried everything I can find on the web - without any success at all. I've had the laptop sitting only a few cm from the router.
Not sure where else I can go with this now... Read more

Hey all!

Few days ago I got Acer V5-531. On this laptop, I can easily connect to wireless networks, but my home one. I could do it on my old laptop with no problems. How is it possible to solve this? It's getting quite annoying, especially knowing that this is the only network I can't connect to. In case with this network, it prompts password and then says "Unable to connect".

What have I tried

Air Mode is off
Updating/rolling drivers back
Resetting the router once (owned by neighbor, thus, I cant perform all maintenance on it)
router lights are on
pw is correct
wireless switch is on
What else can be done?
Thanks all!

A:can't connect laptop to wifi network

Often with that adapter you need the driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site.

I think that adapter is not compatible with WPA2. Try with no encryption and if that works then try WPA-PSK.

As the title states, I have two Xbox Ones. One of them can connect to all 3 of our WiFi networks just dandy. And all the computers and cellphones that come and go through the house can connect just fine to our 3 separate WiFi networks, as well as a public one across the street.

For some reason, the other Xbox One absolutely will not connect to any of my WiFi networks or the public WiFi networks. Whenever I try, I get "DNS isn't resolving Xbox server names." I have been through every troubleshooting step possible, but it seems like it's something wrong with strictly this Xbox.

We have comcast with an Xfinity WiFi network mostly used on the first floor, which also branches off to a NETGEAR N600 router which is secured by WPA2-PSK [AES] and used mostly on the second floor.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. If more information is needed, please let me know.
