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.)

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

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.

I don't really know why this all started I think it went back before the 'conduit' thing got installed. She usually doesn't say anything to me she si... Read more

How far away from your computers is the router? Also; have you tried to power cycle the modem and router? If not; i would try that. Unplug both the modem and router; wait about a minute; then plug in the modem first; let that boot; then plug the router back in and let that boot. Try doing that and see if it helps the situation.

Hey guys, need some urgent help here.

I have a program on my computer called Intel(R) My WiFi Technology, which has something to do with my network adapter (Intel (R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN). I recently had an annoying notice popping up from this program saying 'The Wireless Network Adaptoor could not be found'. So I decided that I should find a solution on Intel's forums. I came across a thread that discussed my problem, and one of the Intel workers mentioned that Uninstalling and Reinstalling the program would be the best solution. So I followed the steps and came across a huge problem . Turns out that once I removed this program, my computer wouldn't connect to my wireless network in my house. I went onto my other devices throughout the home and they all seemed to be working fine, and that my router was still working fine aswell. I went onto my other computer and downloaded the program onto my USB, and installed it back onto my original computer. There still wasn't any difference, and my computer still currently can't connect to my wireless access point. I've rolled back drivers, updated them, and I've refreshed wireless network adapters in my Network and Sharing Center in Control Point. I'm starting to run out of ideas, and I really need some help. My computer can still detect networks though, but I've discovered it can connect to my Mobile Phone's Access Point, meaning I can connect to 3G through my phone. I'm sus... Read more

Hi. I have an IBM T40 Thinkpad laptop running Windows XP with CISCO Aironet Client Utility installed to manage my wireless networks. I don't understand the point of this utility as I find the Windows XP wireless connection management more reliable and straightforward, but I don't know how to disable this thing. I would if I could and I have tried, although not that hard.

Anyway, I was using the CISO Aironet Client Utility (or whatever it's called) fine, then I visited a friend's house and needed to get on his network. He started poking around and one day it was working and the next it was broken. It kept saying it couldn't find a radio signal or that it was off. I came home and it wasn't working for a month or so.

One day, I messed around with it and it started working again. Only problem now is whenever I shut down my laptop and re-open it, it never reconnects to my wireless connection automatically. I always have to do it by hand.

Any suggestions here? How can I get it to reconnect automatically and if I can't, how can I get it to use the Windows wireless features that are built in and bypass this CISCO stuff?

Hi everyone: Iím having an extremely frustrating problem connecting to my Netgear DG384G v3 wireless router in my flat.

In short:

Ever since I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro, internet browsers do not detect a connection to the internet despite a wireless connection being detected in the network connections (and the icon in the system tray) when my wireless adapter is plugged into my PC. Connection problems only occurred after the reformat, another PC in my flat connects wirelessly to our router with no problems (before, during & after the time I reformatted; Iím posting this using his PC) and the router config settings have definitely not been changed in any way so its not a router problem. It appears that the wireless adapter is able to detect a signal from the router but the router is not sending information to the adapter (I canít even connect to the router setup IP address

More detailed:

1) I wiped the PCís harddrive then reinstalled Windows XP Pro Ė I thought the recovery disk would have drivers with it (like others Iíd used) but it didnít so I had to manually find nVidia chipset & 3com Ethernet controller drivers and SP1 (for USB 2.0 functionality), download them on another PC and transfer and install them on mine.

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.

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.

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.

Up until this afternoon, i had been able to access my wireless network fine. However, I had taken my computer outside, and tried to connect. I was not able to, and had xp try to "repair" the problem. No luck. I brought it back into my room, but it still didn't work. It will say "acquiring network address" on and off, but never connect. Everyone else in the house can connect to it fine, and i can still connect to it through ethernet cable, and to other wireless networks besides this one. I ran a diagnostic, where it said that the network keys did not match up, i checked them, and the diag report gave me this.

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)
There was other networks in the list which i deleted and wireless network connection shows that the network connection strength is excellent but it just seems to get stuck aquiring the network address. I have tried repair etc.

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.

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.

...despite everything being set up properly. Allow me to elaborate.

The network itself is fine, as both my desktop computer and the laptop can access it. We have, however, another laptop that is having trouble connecting to the network.

The network key has already been entered into the "properties" tab, and the proper security type has also been selected (WPA with AES) so in short, the two computers have no issue whatsoever when connecting to it, but when I attempt to do it on the other laptop, it always comes up saying "Windows cannot connect to the network"

I tried the troubleshooting feature but to no avail.

Any ideas?

Ive never had this problem before and my laptop is only 1 year old. Just a few days ago I switched it on, tried to connect to available wireless networks with good signal strength and got the message 'Windows cannot connect to (network name)'. After diagnosing the problem I recieved the message 'Windows is not set to automatically connect to (network name). I tried again and got another message saying 'Windows cannot find any wireless networks in range of this computer'. I tried again and again and kept getting those two messages. I restarted my laptop a couple of times but still got the same messages. I then tried to restore to a couple of days earlier and got another message 'System restore did not complete successfully. Your computers system files and settings were not changed. Details: An unspecified error occured during system restore'. I tried this many times with different restore points but still got the same message. Ive scanned for viruses and it appears all clean. If anyone could provide me with any help I would greatly appreciate it. My laptop is an LG P300 and im running windows vista business service pack 2 .

my desktop is running Vista Home Premium and is connected to a Linksys WRT54GS router.

After bringing my notebook on a business trip, I have found that back at home, it will not connect to the internet anymore.
I run two computers on off of a wireless router, my primary computer being a PC, which is conencted via ethernet cables. My notebook has a wireless network card in it. When I turn on the notebook, it says that the wireless connection is active, and has full reception. The problem is that it will not access anything on the internet.
It is quite possible I need to do something with my router or firewall, but I dont have the slightest clue what

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...

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?

With my old PC in the same room in the house I've had it connected before, about a year ago. With my new computer though, I'm having issue after issue.

The router is a Linksys Cisco model # WAG120N.

The Wireless adapter is an ASUS USB-N13 (802.11n)

Both PCs have Windows XP SP2.

It seems to get stuck on "Acquiring network address" and won't get past that. Thinking it might have had something to do with the IP address I tried this with no avail:


When I click "Repair" it doesn't go past renewing IP address.

I've seen many similar situations while googling but nothing has worked for me. It's probably something simple (well I hope anyway!!)

Here is the IPCONFIG log:

We have a router and wireless network at my house, but i am the only one in the house who cannot connect to the wifi with my laptop. Well, i can connect to the network, but my computer won't connect to the internet. I've tried power cycling the router/modem several different times, to no avail. In the Network and Sharing center, it says the access is Local Only.

A:Can't connect to wireless network

can we see an ipconfig /all from a working and none working PC
how many devices will not work

can we also see an xirrus
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

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

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector

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.

I am having problems with the wireless adapter provided with my PC. It can see my wireless router (a Netgear DG824M) and the signal strength is excellent, but it is unable to connect. I either get Limited connection or no connection at all. (It shows "Identifying..." in the Network map.)

From the manual, the wireless adapter is a Asus WL-138GE or WL-138G V2. Windows recognised it as a Broadcom adapter, so I downloaded a Vista 64 bit driver from Asus and installed that. The adapter is now recognised as a Asus 802.11 adapter, but this has not made any difference to being able to connect. The driver provided by Asus does seem to be quite old (2006 I think), and still references Broadcom. There is an Asus utility CD provided by the PC, but this doesn't seem to run on Vista 64.
I have had the connection work pefectly 3 times, but then, the next time I reboot, without changing anything, it stops working. For example, yesterday I turned off Windows Firewall, rebooted, and it worked. The next I booted, still with the firewall disabled, it didn't work.

It seems that the wireless card is unable to get an IP address from the router, as its address is often rubbish, instead of something in the range that I am expecting. I have a laptop, running the equivalent 32 bit version of Vista, and this has no problems connecting. As far as I can tell (I'm not a networking expert), there are no differences between the network set up on the 2 computers. What I'm trying to... Read more

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)

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.

Hi. This is my first post on this forum.

I would like to ask some help regarding a problem with my internet connection. Connecting our separate PC and my Laptop to my LAN works perfectly fine but when I use our wireless network to connect my laptop and phone, that's when the problem occurs. I tried rebooting the router (unplugging the power switch, cables and such). And I also tried rebooting my phone and laptop but nothing works. I also tried looking at the router settings and tried changing the security settings to none to see if I can connect but still cant.
I just don't know what the problem is. Can you help me?
Thank you.

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, 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

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?

I cannot connect to my wireless network that I need to, but it allows me to connect to other networks close in my range. The Network Magic Program nor Norton Antivirus program on the two other computers in the house show my computer on the network at all. My xbox 360 is still connected on the network somehow though but was not working until i connected to someone elses network. So please help me figure out how to get connected.

My brother lives about 300 feet from my house and had a wireless network. He said I could get a wireless adaptor and be able to connect to the internet using his network. How is this done, what equipment would I need to purchase? I have an e-machines t1100 w/ windows xp, and currently have dial up.
Thank you for any help.

A:How to connect to wireless network

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.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium. The other day, I restarted my computer and now it won't connect to any networks. It sees the connections just fine, but whenever I try to connect to mine, it says something like "Unable to connect to [WIRELESS NAME]". I'm not sure what to do. Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

A:Wireless Won't Connect to Network?!

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.

I have an HP Pavilion zx5369cl laptop with Windows XP home. I would like to be able to access the internet wirelessly.

When I go to network connections, choose properties on the wireless connection, & then select Wireless networks tab, there is one wireless network listed (named korea) and it is supposed to connect automatically when available. When I click on View Wireless Networks, it says none were found in range. However, korea network is also on my desk top & it says the signal is strong & I am able to connect on my desk top.
On my laptop it says to check if the wireless network switch is on or off. Where do I find that switch?

In related issue, if I change locations with my laptop, might I have to use a network other than korea? If so, how do I install another wireless network?


A:How To Connect To Wireless Network?

I think that older HP Pavilions had the wireless switch above the left side of the keyboard. Also, there may be a WLAN Assistant that over-rides the physical switch. I have a Pavilion from 2007 that has a slide switch on the front of the laptop and one from 2010 that has a pressure switch above the right side of the keyboard.

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!

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.
