Preferred Solution: hp omni 100 pc will not connect to my 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.)

Hi, I don't know omni100 but there should be a switch for open/close the wireless of notebook computer.the switch is at keyboard near Fn key or it is looks like a button locate at edge of the chassis. you can identify the switch as there is a mark like a radio emission.

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.

http://www.sevenforums.com/network-s...reconnect.html

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.

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.

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?

Thanks!

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.

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 192.168.0.1)?

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.

Revert to a System Restore Point before the weekend.

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.

The device specification say that the USB device is capable on connecting to a wireless-B network.

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.

I am currently connected to the internet through a model, that is connected to a wireless router, that is connected directly to my computer. The internet connection on this computer is fine. However when I try to go online on my other computer through a wireless connection it will not allow me to access the internet. Even though the signal strength is excellent is a pop up comes up and says there is "limited to no connectivity." Furthermore when I look to why this computer can not connect, it says "This problem occured because the network did not assign a network address to the computer." After reading this I attemped to "repair" the connection, only to receive another pop up that says, "Windows could not repair the wireless connection because because it can not renew the IP address."

After Configuring the signal to use WEP encryption only the computer without the special wireless adapters can't connect. It can find the network and says 'limited or no connectivity'. I've tried clicking repair but it says it can't renew the IP address. I've tried reseting the router but it doesn't help.
 

A:Can't connect to wireless network

You need to configure that card to use the same WEP encryption configuration as the router.

And if your router supports it, WPA with a long, random passkey is much more secure than WEP.

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?

In control Panel/Device drivers does your wireless adaptor show with any error messages?

Hi

I started my PC in a new premises with a Wireless modem, I have two other PC's
connected.

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?

Thanks

Daniel

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.

Currently running compaq presario desktop pc (xp Athlon 2600+, 1024meg ram) and a compaq note book on a ethernet and wireless home network

The desktop is connnected to the net via netcomm 1300 adsl modem router and msi rg54gs wireless router. The connection to the router for the desk top is via ethernet from the msi wireless router. The compaq notebook (running xp) is configured and working.

I have also purchased a MSI PCI wireless card (pc54g2) and installed it and drivers on an old clunker Pentium 450 running win98 SE. I am now trying to connect this pc on to my home network via a wireless connection and I have no idea where to start.

Can it be done?

Any help would be appreciated
 

A:Connect a Win 98 pc to wireless network

[tsg=welcome]To TSG![/tsg]
Yes, I should be able to be done with 98SE.

There should be a configuration utility for the card you installed the drivers for. First look in your start menu for the added entry, if not there...then open your control panel and then network for the card itself (properties)

Today I turned on my laptop and it booted all the way into Windows and then for no reason, completely powered off. I powered it back on and it started to do a memory check. After that, it booted to Windows but my wireless connection is X-ed out and the time is wrong on the PC.

I know the Internet is working. 2 other PCs in my house are on it (what I am using now). When I try to refresh networks it does not detect anything. I reinstalled the wireless driver-no luck. I turned the firewall off-still no luck. In my device manager, the network drivers appear to be ok, although there is question marks under "Other Devices". I checked the BIOS and wireless is enabled. I also tried to do a system restore from a week ago and it was sucessful, but I still have no Internet and the time is still wrong on the system clock. Any ideas?

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.

Kirstin

I have a HP Pavilion dv9930us laptop. I recently upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate from Visata Home Premium 64-bit. Everything worked fine until I decided that I didn't want WinAmp that I previously installed. I uninstalled WinAmp. However, when I rebooted the latop, it went into an infinte loop after startup (that is, it would load all the applicatons, but whenever it connected to the internet, it would go into an infinite loop). I also uninstalled HP Quick Launch Buttons. I thought the laptop was going into an infinite loop because it was looking for these programs since they may not have been properly uninstalled. I went ahead an reinstalled these programs but after 30 seconds after startup, when trying to connect to the wirless network, it would freeze (that is only the mouse would work but everything else on the desktop was unresponsive). I edited msconfig several times, at one point, went through each program to see which ones were responsible for the laptop freeze. I found two programs, the SSDP Discovery and the CNG Isolation Key that were causing the laptop to freeze up after startup. I later found out that these two programs, especially the CNG Isolation Key were important to connect wirelessly. The virus program I have is Kaspersky and I already ran a malwarebytes scan through safe mode. At this point, all applications work fine except that I cannot connect to the wireless network. I ran the troubleshoot for the wirless network and reinstalled the drivers but... Read more

A:Can't connect to Wireless Network

and welcome to the Forum

I moved your thread to the Networking Forum.

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please 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.

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'').

Now to make it work.. it is advise able to consider changing yo... Read more

Hi,

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.

Hi everybody,

I'd like to know if anybody has had a similar problem or knows of a solution to something that's been driving me nuts for a few days.
I have a netbook running XP that's been working fine up until 2 days ago. I've been able to connect to my home router automatically since I bought the netbook.
2 days ago I went into town and connected to the towns free wifi network while having lunch. The network was VERY slow so I only used it for a few minutes then turned if off.
Got home that evening and found I couldn't connect to the net. Looked into things and it seems I can see the network - with a strong signal, but when I try to connect the message of doom appears - impossible to connect to your favourite network etc.....
I've tried deleting and adding the network, checking the key - WPA2, restarting the system, restarting the router, disabling and enabling the card, checking the firewalls and making sure all relevant boxes are ticked or not ticked. Even did a complete system scan with Norton to make sure nothing dodgy is going on. Even tried to restore the system, but obviously each time I roll back, anither message of doom - a problem occured ....
I've also got a Vista laptop next to the netbook that works fine and hasn't been affected.
The funniest thing is that this afternoon the network connected for a few minutes, then disconnected at will!!!

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

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.

Cheers!

Neither my Win7 desktop nor my Macbook (running Win7) can connect to my wireless network. They see it - 5 bars - and try to connect, then say they can't and offer to start a troubleshooter, which is then unable to find the cause of the problem.

When the Macbook is booted into Mac OS (10.6) is connects fine, as does my Mac Mini - so it must be a Win 7 configuration issue. I have had "Connectify" running on both desktop and laptop but have uninstalled it from the desktop.

Any ideas ?

A:Win 7 Won't Connect To My Wireless Network, Mac OS Does

I'm sure you've already tried this but it doesn't hurt to clarify.

1.) Ensure you have Windows set to connect to the router the way the router is expecting to be connected to. (Example: If you have a G router, make sure your wireless adapter is set that way)
2.) Ensure Windows has the correct WEP key (if you have WEP enabled on the router) and or a password to connect to your router.
3.) Ensure your router isn't set to allow specific MAC ID's access, if it is set this way, add the MAC address of each of the Windows wireless cards. (This may not be an issue as the Macbook can connect through OSX. Technically, the MAC address is set at the hardware level so it wouldn't change regardless of OS.).
4.) What kind of router is it? Should be able to research any issues regarding Windows 7 and that router.

Just a few steps to think about while you wait for other responses

Hello,

I have a month old dell desktop. It connected immediately when I booted it up. however yesterday I had really bad connectivity (it kept going down) so I looked at the back of my machine at the place where the antennas screw in to see if the lights were lit. I noticed that one of the screws was very loose so I turned the nut until it got tighter. Well ever since then I can no longer connect. I can see my wireless network although it continues to go up and down. But when I try to connect it says that it can't.

I ran the diagnostic and it says it is fixing the problem by resetting my network adapter and then verifying that it is working but it doesnt work and eventually errors out. I have also gotten an investigate router or access point msg. The router is working just fine. I am accessing my wireless network on 2 other computers. HELP! I have tried to reset the adapter... to delete and create a new wireless network and have completely reset the router. I still cannot connect!
