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.)

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

I would have to tick the checkbox USE WINDOWS TO CONFIGURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS
Then into properties for my wireless network and in association retype my password and then it would connect. (it seemed like to much work every time but it still worked)

Can someone please help me with this as maybe it's just something simple!!

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 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?

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!

You need to get a directional antenna and a wireless adapter. If he's line-of-sight, you should be OK, it'll be a bit more difficult if there are obstructions in the way. He can also help the situation on his end with a directional antenna and by positioning the router/antenna in the best location for you.

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

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

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

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?

We have 3 computers connected to our wanadoo wireless router. 2 run off special wireless adapters and the newest uses its own 'RT73 USB Wireless LAN card' All the computers used to be able to connect to the wireless signal.
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.

A:Can't connect to my wireless network

A weak signal or wireless interference could make a secured connection fail while an unsecured one succeeds.

Do you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter? If not, get it.

Hey, I really hope someone can help with this because I am all outta ideas!

I have just set up a wireless network, and my phone (android) can connect to it fine with the correct wep key, but my laptop (windows 7) cannot. it sees the network but when I try to connect it does not ask for a wep key, it just tells me it cannot connect. I have tried going into the 'network and sharing center' and connecting manually but no dice! Please help, I am clueless!

A:cannot connect to wireless network

open network and sharing center, go to 'Manage Wireless Networks', right click on the connection in question, go to properties, in the security tab, set the security to OPEN, then try again.

if this doesnt work, its possible your network adapter doesnt support the encryption type, although wep is very basic, so it should. its best that you use WPA, instead. So if those fail, then turn off the security altogether and try again without encryption to see what happens.

Hi guys,

I have a problem with my wireless network connection whenever I go to "Connect to a network" and click on a wireless network nothing happens (After i double click on any wireless network, the "Connect to a network" window closes). I get no error message, no prompts for Key nothing .. . I tried to connect to my Home Router as well as Public Hot spots (Both in Secured (WEP) and Unsecured mode (open) ).

My Specs are as follows:

1) Operating System: Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2)
2) System Type: 32 bit Operating system
3) In-built Wireless Network Adapter: Broadcom 802.11 a/b/g WLAN (Device ID: BCM4312)
4) Broadcom Driver Version: 5.10.38.26
5) Laptop: HP Pavillion DV6000

I tried uninstalling the network adapter and reinstalling it, driver roll back to a previous version and then updating it back to the latest version, upgrading Vista from Service pack 1 to Service pack 2 but still the same problem

Any help or suggestion is appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

A:Cannot Connect to any Wireless Network

Have you tried logging into your modem settings and checking things there.

You don;t mention what type of modem you have. If you have a modem/Router do you have access to internet if you connect via cable?

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

We have a small office network... 2 wired desktops and 3 wireless laptops. My laptop
was working fine, I took it home over the weekend and it connected to home network
just fine, then brought it in and it will not connect. All the other computers are working fine on the network. I've tried all I know to do, as limited as that is.
- I have made sure the key is correct and all the settings are correct.
- I have tried "repairing" the wireless network in the "Network Connections" window...
this will make the Internet Gateway appear for about a minute and I can get on the
internet, but then it goes away and says "not able to connect to any of your preferred
networks"
- tried to "ping" ip address and it says "destination host unavailable"
- reset TCP/IP settings using "netsh winsock reset" and this worked... for about 2 minutes... then I was off the network and back to square 1
- While I was connected I was able to successfully ping 192.168.1.1 which I believe is the correct ip address... was also able to successfully ping 205.152.0.20 which I believe is the DNS server... keep in mind I really don't know what that tells me, but it must be better than "destination host unavailable"

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.

A:Can't see/connect to my wireless network

Maybe the "wireless radio" option on your wired/wireless router is OFF for some reason. What is the brand/model of your router?

You should have instructions that came with the device. Check them, for the address of the router and userid/password, and other basic setup steps.

You can connect to your router using Firefox or IE, by entering its address (say, 192.168.1.1 for Netgear routers) and then entering the userid/password as the instructions tell you.

The basic wireless settings are in something like Setup -> wireless settings, and control security. This provides (a) wireless network ID name as it appears in the wireless scan for a network shown on laptops, i.e. SSID, (b) password to be entered by wireless laptops in order to log in to the router's wireless network, i.e. PASSPHRASE, and (c) security level option, and you should generally pick the highest, e.g. WPA2-PSK [AES].

The ON/OFF state of the whole wireless capability of your router is controlled in a second place, something like Advanced -> Wireless settings, in an item named "enable wireless router radio" or something like that. If unchecked, this will disable wireless functionality and limit the router to wired-only. This is good if you don't need wireless in your house and don't want your neighbors stealing access (assuming they could crack your userid/password and encryption). If checked, wireless functionality is enabled.

Note that even if wireless router radio IS checked, y... Read more

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.

Additional information would be helpful.

What kind of router and have you verified that all is well with the configuration in the router's back end.

Have you run ipconfig in a command prompt and do you have an ip address and if so, what is it.

You can always reset your router to its default by holding the reset button.
