Preferred Solution: My deskjet 4535 would not connect to wireless network

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.)


I have been using the DeskJet Ink Advantage 4535 printer and recently I have been receiving the '' attention required'' message. Though there is no problem with the wireless connection or cartridge, it says '' this is a web services printer'' and does not provide the print.
Your assistance will be appreciated.

Hi all,

Hope you guys can help, I need to connect a USB only HP Deskjet 1320 to my wireless network (running a Belkin N+ router). I found the HP JetDirect, but I can't afford the $150 price tag...can I get a regular router that connects USB printers to my wifi network via ethernet? Would that work? I can dedicate an old Powerbook or an HP laptop as a print server, if that would make things easier.

Thanks a bunch, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A:Cheapest way to connect HP Deskjet 1320 to Wifi network

Well, you can connect the printer to a computer and share it on the network. If that HP laptop has bootable system on it, that would be free it would appear.

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.

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.

I am not sure that her problems started when she got that "conduit" search malware. I had only partially removed it, it was still resident when another tab on her firefox was opened. Yesterday i found some additional information to remove the settings from registry and thought that had cured it. But apparently it did not, we are now back to the disconnect problem. last i tried it it wouldn't even connect on restart. Right now she is saying that its been doing pretty well for about five minutes. Probably wont last long.

I don't really know why this all started I think it went back before the 'conduit' thing got installed. She usually doesn't say anything to me she si... Read more

A:still looses connect/doesn't connect - win 7 wireless home network

How far away from your computers is the router? Also; have you tried to power cycle the modem and router? If not; i would try that. Unplug both the modem and router; wait about a minute; then plug in the modem first; let that boot; then plug the router back in and let that boot. Try doing that and see if it helps the situation.

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.

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. There still wasn't any difference, and my computer still currently can't connect to my wireless access point. I've rolled back drivers, updated them, and I've refreshed wireless network adapters in my Network and Sharing Center in Control Point. I'm starting to run out of ideas, and I really need some help. My computer can still detect networks though, but I've discovered it can connect to my Mobile Phone's Access Point, meaning I can connect to 3G through my phone. I'm sus... Read more

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?

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

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:Windows 7 laptop with Atheros AR9285 network card can't connect to wireless network

Three things to try ...

If you have McAfee please see the sticky thread at the top of this (Networking) forum.

Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

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.

Hi, Have a problem there, Just reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows XP and WAS having problems having my Linksys 802B wireless card but now it finally detected.. just reinstalled the driver. Now another problem is.. when I double clciked INternet Exploroer, webpages dont load up. A box pops up tp ask if I want to workoffline or Connect. I click on COnnect, and the box then said " No connection to the internet is currently avaiable." The thing is that my wireless adapter is already connected to the DSL in perfect signal connections.

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.

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.

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

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.

A:Cannot Connect To Wireless Network

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.

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.

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?

A:Can't connect to Wireless network, others can

Read other 10 answers

Hi guys,

I cannot connect to my wireless network here at home. I see the network in the list of available wireless networks, but when I try to connect to it, the pc gets stuck at "identifying" and never gets on. 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:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

A:Cannot connect to wireless network

Read other 15 answers

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.

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...

My laptop will not connect to my network.

Have cable internet with Linksys router

Wired computer works though

The laptop at one point said it was connected but now it is still trying to aquire address.

I have WPA encryption. I checked the passkey on the laptop and I think it got changed somehow. As it does not have near as many characters in it as my passkey. I retyped the passkey and it would revert to the one with less characters.

I was going to reset the router to default but I can not get into it using
It is like the password to it was changed.

Is there a way to unplug and make everything go to default to start over?

I am at a loss what to do and wonder if somebody hacked into my network?

any help would be appreciated.

I think I got sabatoged by somebody in CD here. Just kidding.

A:EEK !! Can not connect wireless to network

Read other 11 answers

There is an internal wireless network that uses WPA2-Enterprise with PEAP. I am unable to connect to the wireless network, unless I manually add the network and tell it not to validate the server certificate.

No other computers experience this. I believe that the certificate was changed recently and I didn't have problems before that, so I would think that my computer is still using that old certificate and is why it isn't working.

I tried finding the certificate and removing it, but I don't think I really know how to do that. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, up untill today my wireless connection has been working properly for my lab top but for some reason today it just wont connect at all. I've tried repairing the connection but that doesn't seem to work. I've also looked into all the things that disrupt your connection like phones and stuff and yet I still can't connect. Recently I downloaded firefox, but I'm not sure if that affects anything or not. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Disable firewall
Reinstall wireless card drivers
Reset winsock catalog (through command schell)
Use static IP adress

Download the free version (trial) of Network Magic. Install the program and let it do its thing. It's an excellent program and quite frequently will identify the problems and correct them wherever possible. It's owned by Cisco and is very safe.
Thank you for downloading Network Magic

Ive never had this problem before and my laptop is only 1 year old. Just a few days ago I switched it on, tried to connect to available wireless networks with good signal strength and got the message 'Windows cannot connect to (network name)'. After diagnosing the problem I recieved the message 'Windows is not set to automatically connect to (network name). I tried again and got another message saying 'Windows cannot find any wireless networks in range of this computer'. I tried again and again and kept getting those two messages. I restarted my laptop a couple of times but still got the same messages. I then tried to restore to a couple of days earlier and got another message 'System restore did not complete successfully. Your computers system files and settings were not changed. Details: An unspecified error occured during system restore'. I tried this many times with different restore points but still got the same message. Ive scanned for viruses and it appears all clean. If anyone could provide me with any help I would greatly appreciate it. My laptop is an LG P300 and im running windows vista business service pack 2 .

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.
