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.

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.

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

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.

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. I got SP2, this didnít change anything, I changed back to SP1, still no change to connectivity.

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.

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.

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.

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 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'm trying to connect to my college's wireless network and I'm having a bizarre problem.

If I try to connect to the network in the library, my computer gives me the message "Windows cannot find any networks" even though I know there are at least six broadcasting networks where I am, the people around me are connecting to them, and I've been able to connect to them in the past.

Here's the weird bit, I know my wireless card is functioning normally because if I go anywhere else on campus I can connect fine, no problem.

If I go into the Dell Wireless WLAN card utility and go to the site monitor tab, I can see the networks I should be able to connect to, so obviously it is able to detect them on some level, so what is with the "Windows cannot find any networks?" ARGH

This is the first time I've used this site so please forgive any posting faux pas I may have inadvertently committed.

Connecting our separate PC and my Laptop to my LAN works perfectly fine but when I use our wireless network to connect my laptop and phone, that's when the problem occurs. I tried rebooting the router (unplugging the power switch, cables and such). And I also tried rebooting my phone and laptop but nothing works. I also tried looking at the router settings and tried changing the security settings to none to see if I can connect but still cant.

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?

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.

Use XP if it helps

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'').

I have a new laptop from my school district. When at school, I am connected to our network through a docking station. When I brought it home and tried to connect to my wireless network, it doesn't give me the option to put in my network key. It shows my wireless network but when i click connect it gives me the message "Windows was unable to connect to this network"... Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

A:Can't Connect to Wireless Network

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

The links below might also help you to diagnose the problem.

I know you guys are probably sick of hearing about this stuff. Sorry

I'm using an Eeepc 900hd, just loaded windows 7 ultimate on it. My wireless driver is up to date (so it says, although I've tried to install a new driver, but it "doesn't work on this operation syste,").
I turned off my firewall, followed most of nosferatu's directions in another thread, and I can't seem to figure it out. Everything else can connect to my wireless network (ipod touch, windows xp) but this one can see my network, but when I try to connect, it fails everytime.

I tried disabling the WPA password and it didn't work.

Any other suggestions?

A:Can see but can't connect to wireless network

There were some problems reported with your bios not having wifi enabled by default.
If you have the tray utility insalled just enable WiFi "WLAN" from there. If not then press F2 on startup befor the OS loads to enter the bios. It is under intergrated periferals.

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?

1. Wireless connection issue
2. One of S. Korea providers (ISP =hanvit ginam broadcasting comm)
3. Cable
4. D-Link Router Model: DIR-628
Cable Modem: DPC3000
5. McAfee

I have a Dell D610 Laptop that I travel with. I always connect to various hotel and office wireless networks. I am in a hotel now where I can not see the network. I know it is here and my co woker is able to see it and connect to it, but it never shows up in my avaliable list. I know nothing is wrong with my laptop as I connected today at another hotel we had meetings at. What could possibly be the problem? I called Dell and they want to replace the wireless parts of the laptop. I am running XP.

I purchased a Netgear Wireless-G Router WGR614 and installed it on a HP Compaq NX9040 and placed a network security key. It works perfectly for the other laptops but when it comes to my Toshiba Satellite, it cannot connect to the internet. At first, I tried to 'diagnose and repair' but a box appears and says 'cannot connect to primary dns server'. I configured my settings to 'automatically obtain dns server address' but it still doesn't work.

Finally, I reset the router and installed it again using my Toshiba Satellite. I can connect and surf the internet. However, when I placed a network security key, I cannot connect again.

Please help me.

A:Cannot connect to a wireless network

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver. If the adapter is integrated get the driver from Toshiba's web site.

Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset it to factory defaults and reconfigure it.

What encryption are you using? If WEP use a HEX key, not an ascii passcode. If WEP, try WPA, as Vista sometimes struggles with WEP, especially with older routers such as the WGR614.

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.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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?



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.

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.

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.
