Preferred Solution: Laptop can't connect to wifi

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.)

About a week ago, our cable internet connection went out. Before I had a chance to reboot the modem & router, my 11 year old decided to completely reset the router to factory settings! Ugh! This caused several issues: my home network is now gone, only a unsecured factory network is available. When I try to plug my laptop into the router via ethernet cord (in order to login to router and setup secure network) my computer will not recognize the router and won't connect to internet. I tried troubleshooting with my cable provider and they say it's in my computer (IP address will not reset) and he recommended I replace my network card. However, today when I brought my laptop to work, it will instantly recognize the wifi at work. So is it really my network card that is causing issues? Please help, I'm desperate and not tech too tech savvy!

I have an HP Pavilion g6. This laptop used to run fine with no issues. Now no matter what I do I cannot get the computer to connect to any wireless networks. I can still connect via direct LAN eithernet cable. There is only a LAN Network symbol where the Wifi symbol used to be. The wireless key's light remains solid orange and does not change. No message appears when it is pressed. The divice manager only lists the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller and does not list any Ralink driver as it should. I have tried everything. Reseting does nothing.  I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.

A:Laptop wont connect to wifi. Wifi key light is always orange...

Hi, My lenovo laptop, which I have used for 3 years, suddenly had a problem connecting to my house's high speed wifi. Other devices are able to connect to my home wifi but my laptop has intermittent and slow connection to the wifi, sometimes my laptop cannot even detect my house wifi and the signal is usually 0 bars even though I am very near my wifi modem. I have tried restarting my wifi card and reseting the saved networks but the problem still persists. Would be great if anyone has a solution. Thank You.

Just to start off, I am COMPLETELY clueless and have no tech savvy whatsoever, so simple language would be appreciated

I've owned this laptop for a little over a year, and all this time I've been able to connect to Wifi without a problem. This morning the icon at the bottom left of the screen told me there was no Internet connection available. when I troubleshot it, it suggested using the Ethernet cord to connect. The Ethernet cord connects them fine, and the internet connection becomes available, but I'm still unable to use the Wifi.

This is an issue with my laptop, because all the other devices in my house are able to connect to the Wifi, and the modem is showing all the appropriate lights and such. I've tried turning it off and on again, but alas, this once that method has failed :/ I've also tried resetting the modem, and it made no difference.

Last night I was uninstalling various programs that I didn't need, and that's the only thing I've done differently to my usual computing habits. I don't think I removed anything unless I knew what it was, but it's possible I accidently removed something important. I don't know if that has any relevance or not, but it's all I can think of as the reason for this.

My laptop is a Toshiba Qosmio, and the system I use is Windows 7.

My modem is Telstra Bigpond.

Please help! D:

How far from the router are you? I experience the same thing occasionally on my laptop.
I usually have to switch the wifi switch off on the laptop & on then I reboot & I'm back online. My laptop & tower are both about 50' away & on the lower floor where the router is. Good luck.

I've recently just bought my laptop and have had wifi issues with it from day 1. After 15-20 minutes the wifi would changed to 'Limited Access' then disconnect. IT would eventually then reconnect after a while.A few days later the same happened then i got "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEMPTION_NOT_HANDLED (Netwtw02.sys)" error which forced the latop to restart. This has happened about 3 times now. Now it won't even connect to the wifi at all. I know it is not the hub, as there are 2 other laptops, 3 tablets and 3 iphones (not all connected at once) and they don't have this problem. I have tried disabling and then re-enabling the Wireless Adapter but made no difference. Model = HP ENVY 15-ah150sa with Windows 10. Thanks.

Any clue what DID happen? I'm currently connected to the internet with my Wireless card from my cell phone company.

A:Laptop won't connect to Wifi

Could be loads of things: If you've genuinely not installed anything that may have caused the problem, or mistakenly changed configurations of the laptop or the router, the first thing I'd be doing is checking your wireless channels aren't suffering interference from a nearby neighbour, or a windows update hasn't damaged your connection. There are probably a few other things that might cause the problem, but without any more info we're in the dark, I'm afraid.How to choose the right wireless channel - you do this on your router, the wireless devices pick it up automatically.

HI!
I recently received a wireless modem/router from comcast. We connected it, renamed it also changed the password and it works properly. We can connect our playstation, phones, and other devices to it through the wifi with no problems. My neighbor across the street can connect on his computer with ease also. When I get on my laptop and try to connect. It says that it is connected but its not. What I mean is the little globe does not show up in the bottom right corner of the screen. Even when I open a browser it says it has no internet connection! When I go to the network and sharing center it has (" my computer "---------- unknown network-----X------ internet) and nothing is in color. Then under the little map thing it has a clock and beside that it says trying to identify IP?

I can connect with the neighbors wifi with no problem. I can connect to any and all wifi hotspots also. I have an ethernet cable and as soon as I plug it in. The internet automaticly connects but I dont want that. I pay for a wireless internet for my computer and for some reason cant use it!! Can someone please tell me how to fix my problem?

Also I must say that I know a little about computers but Im not a wiz. So I might need steps on how to fix it. lol

My laptop suddenly stopped being able to connect to our wireless internet. All other devices in the house still connect fine including my phone which is what I'm posting this from. It has worked fine almost the entire time I've had the laptop but about a week ago it I booted it up and it couldn't connect to the internet. It says connections are available but when I try to connect it gives the error message "Windows was unable to connect to [my network]". I try to troubleshoot problems and it says "Investigate router or access point issues". Turned my router off and back on, unplugged it for 10 sec,etc. wifi still doesn't work. I've toggled the wifi button on the keyboard, and uninstalled and reinstalled wireless adapters and did a system restore to a point when I know the internet was working. None of that has worked. I did try following some pinging directions I found and when I ping google.com I get the error message "Ping request could not find host google.com. Please check the name and try again". I pinged 4.2.2.2. and the request timed out. 4 packets lost(100%) so I'm wondering if maybe this is where the problem is, I've also wondered if it's possibly a virus?. It's a Samsung RC512 laptop Windows 7, Intel Core i7-2360QM CPU 2.00 GHz. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

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.

Problem with wireless adapter or access point
And
Wifi doesn't have a valid IP configuration

All other devices in the house connect without any issues
 

A:Can't connect my acer laptop to wifi

Delete the wireless profile (or "forget" the network) and try again.

Alright, so I have a Dell xps 12 running windows 8.

On my school's campus, there are two wifi options. One is secure with a login, the other is unsecured but with a Web login. Normally I connect to the secure one and have no problem.

However, in one building I've encountered issues connecting. My computer will pick up the signal for both options (and says there is strong signal) , then try to connect to the secure one. It will say "connection is taking longer than usual" and then fail to connect, then say no networks available. I tried resetting the network adapters and it picks up the signal again for a moment, try to connect, and then same problem again.

I can see other people in the room connected to the Internet with no issue. My phone also connects with no problems, and has full signal. I have no idea why my computer won't connect.

Anyone have any advice?

I have windows and have no trouble connecting to wifi at any location other than my friends. She lives in a duplex and the router is in the other part of the house where we cannot access. I can connect to the wifi with my iphone but not with my computer.
I have double check numerous times that the password is correct and I'm signing into the correct wifi. I have restarted my coputer and turned my wifi on and off, with no luck. Other people with windows laptops have had trouble connecting to wifi but people
with apple laptops have no problems. Any ideas of what I can do? Thanks in advance!

For some reason my windows 8 Hp will not connect to my home wifi network. Has had no problem connecting in the past but yesterday I unplugged my router to move it to another part of my house and ever since then it can't connect. My cell phone and other laptop connect to the internet no problem.
On my Hp it will show a list of wifi networks and my home network is on the list, however, when I try to connect to it and then troubleshoot the problem it says I can't connect to the network because it is hidden. I don't see how thats possible since the network name shows up on the list of nearby wifi networks.
What I've done but hasn't worked:
Reset my router and laptop multiple times.
Tried to manually connect to network.
Forgot the network on my laptop and tried to reconnect.
I don't understand how one day it can connect to the wifi fine and then I unplug it and all of a sudden it can't connect but my other devices can.
Please help me this is very frustrating and I couldn't find a specific answer anywhere else online.

A:Windows 8 laptop won't connect to wifi.

Networks are not my thing but have you tried setting up a connection manually?

Unable to connect to hidden wireless network.

Hi everyone,

I was helped here last time very thoroughly, and now I'm back.

I realize this is a pretty minor issue, or it seems like, but i've tried everything, resetting my connection from router to connect to wifi (yes all the buttons are enabled on side of laptop for wifi to be on)

I'm not quite sure what happened, and w/o wifi my laptop is literally useless.

I've tried everything that I know to do to fix it, when I hit "repair" option by right clicking the connection where it normally connects in bottom right, it just gets stuck on "renewing your IP address" but it reads that it's connected to everything, but without any internet function.

PC Specs

Dell latitude e6500
The system specs are:
Windows XP Ver 2002 SP3

Intel Core 2 duo cpu
[email protected]
2.24GHz 1.98GB RAM

A:Laptop won't let me connect to wifi anymore

Go over to your Modem and Wireless Router or if a combo device, and unplug them for 15 seconds and then plug them in. While waiting for all of the lights to come back on the router and modem, restart your computer.
Go to Start/Run and type ncpa.cpl and press enter. In the Network Connections, you should see the Local Area Connection, and your WiFi connection. Right click it, and it is is disabled, Enable it. Then click Connect. You should see available wireless networks in the taskbar by the clock.

Has anyone had this problem? Can you advise on how to correct? Thanks!

A few days ago I bought an Asus laptop model F556UA-AS54 with Windows 10. I tried connecting to the wifi at my mom's house as well as my dad's house but every time it just says, "Can't connect to this network". All other devices at both houses have no issue connecting to the wifi, which makes my think that it had the be a problem with the laptop. I called Asus tech support and was on the phone with them for over an hour trying to figure out the problem.(I rebooted the internet router, reset my laptop to factory settings, among other things I can't remember). After every option tech support gave me didn't work, they advised me to mail it back in exchange for a new one. So, the new laptop(same model and everything) arrived today, and when I tried to connect to wifi, it still wouldn't connect!!! I'm really desperate for some answers because I start college soon and need a working laptop!! Thanks!

Assuming that you are trying to use an integrated wireless adapter make sure you have the latest driver from Asus's web site.

What encryption is used on the router at whichever house you are now? For a test disable encryption on the router and try to connect.
