hp omni 100 pc will not connect to my WIRELESS NETWORK

Q: hp omni 100 pc will not connect to my WIRELESS NETWORK

A couple days ago I received a message that stated usb unable to be read. when I click on computer w/ red "x" it tells me there are no connections available. I have wireless in my home and every other laptop, tablet, kindle connects and run. What do I need to do to get my connection back. I have already reset factory settings to no avail. Thank you.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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 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.

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.

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.

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've tried disabling the network card connection in "network connection" and the reinstalled the USB adapter without any success. At that point, if I check in cmd->ipconfig. I get media not connected. Could it be an update? Because the computer has not been connected do the internet since it was shipped a year ago with XP home SP1.

I have an Asus S6F laptop with an Intel 3945ABG wireless adapter. I've been using it without problems for the last few months, connecting to any of the three (!) wireless connections in my house:
- Sky broadband router (NetgearDG834GT)
- BT Broadband home hub
- Buffalo Airstation High Power wireless router.

I now find that I usually can't connect to the Buffalo or Sky routers. When I try to connect it gets stuck at "acquiring network address". Very occasionally I am able to connect to the Sky and Buffalo routers, but only after I have first connected to the BT router.

My wife's laptop has no such problems - connecting to all 3 routers without problems. Her Windows network settings are identical to those on my laptop - acquiring an IP address automatically.

I use either WEP or WPA encryption on all routers, and the keys have not changed since I was successfully using the routers.

I get the above problems using both the Windows wireless connection manager as well as Intel ProSet/Wireless. I've also tried stopping/starting the Wireless Zero Configuration service, to no effect.

The strangest thing is that I can OCCASIONALLY connect to the other two routers. Can anyone suggest how best to further diagnose this problem?

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...

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?

Hi and welcome to seven forums

Probably just a driver issue. could you go into device manager (type device in search) and look at the network devices. You should have a NIC (for wired) and a wireless (wifi). Are both listed and working, or is there an unknown device with a yellow triangle?

My Vista Ultimate desktop can see my wireless network, but for whatever reason it is unable to connect to it. I tried system restore, and disabled windows firewall all to no avail. The only change that has been made since it worked to now it's not working is that I connected it to WIn7 homegroup (but it worked fine for 2 - 3 days being connected). Why won't it connect now?

A:Can see wireless network but can't connect

has your network got a password?

Hello, new here so i wasnt 100% sure where to post this. But ill get right to the point. I have been using the internet just fine for months up until a few days ago so nothing new was bought or installed (sp3 was installed a week or so ago). Heres how we have the network setup. Its WEP secured, i have the correct key and have entered it right multiple times.

My roomate runs the wireless router from his computer, and everything has been connecting fine (their pc's, xbox's, my xbox) except my PC it seems recently wont connect. It sees it when i search for wireless networks, and when i click connect, enter the wep key, it searches for a minute then stop and doesnt connect, no error message or anything. I am able to connect to other networks in range, like the one im using now (not something i want to do, because its slow and not safe). I have a LinksysWMP300N wireless card connecting to a Linksys wireles router, i forget the model but i can check later. And help?

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.

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.

I have an Acer Aspire v5-571 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, and I've been running into trouble connecting to my home's wireless network for the past couple days. It just says that my laptop is unable to connect. I've tried everything I can think of; I've reinstalled and updated all drivers from the Acer website, done system restores from weeks ago, installed all Windows updates, and I've even wiped my PC and reinstalled windows. Nothing has worked. I'd really appreciate some help on this ASAP.

Hey guys,
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." If anyone has any clue as to what the heck is going on, your help and support would be greatly appreciated.

Very Confused and Frustrated,

A:Can't connect to wireless network

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.

A:Can't connect to a wireless network I know is there

Hi ConfusedMuppet,

I am sure the problem is the conflict between the Dell wifi software and the Windows built-in wifi software. Try disabling the Dell wifi software and use the Windows built-in wifi software to connect wirelessly to the internet. Hope everything works out well for you.

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.

A:Won't connect to a wireless network

If the wireless can see the network , then you have to turn the key (so to speak) . Check your logon and wep/wap. Right click on the network icon in the taskbar.

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!

Thanks for your help!

This is a random issue, sometimes I can connect just fine, and usually a restart of my laptop lets me connect.

However sometimes when I try to enter the password it does not work. I get the error message 'the network security key is not correct. Please try again.'

I know for a fact that my password is correct, and sometimes it works, allowing me to choose whether I want to 'find PC's, devices and content on this network' etc.

Regardless of whether I click yes or no at this point I don't connect. And instead I am getting to this screen below. I have no idea what to enter as my username and password. As nothing to do with my wireless network has this requirement.

For some reason I now cannot connect to the wireless network in my house, everyone else can but me, however I can acess the internet by using a cable. I did a network diagnostic and it came up with a failed message by the IP address (request timed out), I also did an ipconfig and it said that the media was disconnected. Also I cannot change my home page from msn (not sure if that is related).

Any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

So I am having trouble connecting to my wireless network sometimes it shows up sometimes it does not but when it is there it sometimes has full bars and others has none. I have tried resolving the the issues through windows and it either says windows cannot resolve your wireless connectivity issue or it says to unplug router for 10 seconds blah blah blah. sometimes it says there is an issue at the access point or wireless adapter. It is really getting frustrating and everything else that is wireless works in my house. I have a dell studio 1745 and windows 7 on it. before it completely didn't work it had a lot of trouble connecting too i had to restart the router a lot to get it fixed but it would work after. I am seriously contemplating just going to get a new laptop cause this i feel like this is not going to be able to get fixed but any help would be awesome.

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
