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.)

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.


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

A:still looses connect/doesn't connect - win 7 wireless home network

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.

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. 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.

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.

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 purchased a Netgear Wireless-G Router WGR614 and installed it on a HP Compaq NX9040 and placed a network security key. It works perfectly for the other laptops but when it comes to my Toshiba Satellite, it cannot connect to the internet. At first, I tried to 'diagnose and repair' but a box appears and says 'cannot connect to primary dns server'. I configured my settings to 'automatically obtain dns server address' but it still doesn't work.

Finally, I reset the router and installed it again using my Toshiba Satellite. I can connect and surf the internet. However, when I placed a network security key, I cannot connect again.

Please help me.

A:Cannot connect to a wireless network

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver. If the adapter is integrated get the driver from Toshiba's web site.

Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset it to factory defaults and reconfigure it.

What encryption are you using? If WEP use a HEX key, not an ascii passcode. If WEP, try WPA, as Vista sometimes struggles with WEP, especially with older routers such as the WGR614.

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?

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?

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.

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.

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)

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

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.

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.

I have also tried going into the services settings and the WLAN auto config; this is where i find I get an error report Error 193:0xc1

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

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?

try connecting with it turned off temporarily.

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 .

I have a new laptop from my school district. When at school, I am connected to our network through a docking station.

It shows my wireless network but when i click connect it gives me the message "Windows was unable to connect to this network"... Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

A:Can't Connect to Wireless Network

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

Hi, up untill today my wireless connection has been working properly for my lab top but for some reason today it just wont connect at all. I've tried repairing the connection but that doesn't seem to work. I've also looked into all the things that disrupt your connection like phones and stuff and yet I still can't connect. Recently I downloaded firefox, but I'm not sure if that affects anything or not. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

I'm currently having issues connecting to my home's wireless network. All devices besides my laptop are connecting to it just fine though. The problem only started this morning, and I've already reset my wireless adapter, computer, and router a couple times. This has happened once before, and I just wiped my PC because I couldn't find a solution. I'd prefer to not do that again.

It's an Acer Aspire v5-571. Thanks in advance

EDIT: I just did a system restore and everything works fine now. This can be closed

Look through any recent windows updates to see if around the same time an update was installed, this problem occurred: Windows Update - View Update History Details

Did anything get installed or an application update recently? Don't forget to check your antivirus for recent updates. Some 3rd party antivirus softwares can at times conflict with windows due to a faulty update, etc. Please let me know which AV you are using.

Follow this tutorial to see if it helps you in any way: Internet Troubleshooting Guide

DO make sure every driver is updated (using another computer and a USB drive, for example). If every driver is updated and you still experience problems, try installing a previous version of the wireless LAN driver.

i just bought a new laptop today and am trying to connect it to my wireless network.

it registers that the network is there but says "Acquiring Network Address" and i have no actual access. also under the support tab in the connection properties it says this

Address type: Invalid IP
IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default gateway:

this is what i get when the TCP/IP is set to get the IP/Subnet/Default gateway automatically from my router.

if i fill in the TCP/IP fields manually i get an actually connection but i have like 0 activity and still cant acess the web.

if anyone has any suggestions or solutions i would gretly appreciate them
