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

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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

Have a USB wireless WiFi unit. To connect to the Internet. Have to disable the Local Area Connection. When connected to the Internet. If I enable the Local Area Connection. Unable to connect to the Internet. When I disable the LAC, the Internet connection is restablished. Using a D-Link boradband VPN router.
 

A:Wireless Network Connection will only connect to Internet if Lcl Area Connect disable

sounds about right! Your big issue will be the VPN, as it is frequently specifically
config'd to use a specific adaptor AND to force all tcp traffic thru that connection,
even though you want to do some trivial google.com search.

Consider using a Hardware Profile to define
1) a LAN connection environment (ie no WiFi)
2) a WiFi environment (w/o a LAN)

the choice occurs at boot time and the hardware is enabled/disabled per
the profile.

She keeps loosing connection, then has to wait until it decides it can connect again. She would wait about five minutes and then click on something and would gain access.

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

the symptom has been occurring for at least a month and more.

We are on a wireless network (Uverse) and have not had any problems with this wireless network

One thing i notice is that her icon for the connect shows one less bar than mine shows. I should be the same. they are both HP machines and sit in the same spot.

when it is not connected and the icon is clicked it does not show our connect name as an option. Sometimes rebooting solves the problem, sometimes clicking 'connect' does. It will work for a while and then she looses the connect.

I am not sure that her problems started when she got that "conduit" search malware. I had only partially removed it, it was still resident when another tab on her firefox was opened. Yesterday i found some additional information to remove the settings from registry and thought that had cured it. But apparently it did not, we are now back to the disconnect problem. last i tried it it wouldn't even connect on restart.

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.

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

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

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

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

Thanks!

Hey guys, need some urgent help here.

I have a program on my computer called Intel(R) My WiFi Technology, which has something to do with my network adapter (Intel (R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN). I recently had an annoying notice popping up from this program saying 'The Wireless Network Adaptoor could not be found'. So I decided that I should find a solution on Intel's forums. I came across a thread that discussed my problem, and one of the Intel workers mentioned that Uninstalling and Reinstalling the program would be the best solution. So I followed the steps and came across a huge problem . Turns out that once I removed this program, my computer wouldn't connect to my wireless network in my house. I went onto my other devices throughout the home and they all seemed to be working fine, and that my router was still working fine aswell. I went onto my other computer and downloaded the program onto my USB, and installed it back onto my original computer. There still wasn't any difference, and my computer still currently can't connect to my wireless access point. I've rolled back drivers, updated them, and I've refreshed wireless network adapters in my Network and Sharing Center in Control Point. I'm starting to run out of ideas, and I really need some help. 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 192.168.0.1)?

More detailed:

1) I wiped the PCís harddrive then reinstalled Windows XP Pro Ė I thought the recovery disk would have drivers with it (like others Iíd used) but it didnít so I had to manually find nVidia chipset & 3com Ethernet controller drivers and SP1 (for USB 2.0 functionality), download them on another PC and transfer and install them on mine. I got SP2, this didnít change anything, I changed back to SP1, still no change to connectivity.

Hi everyone.

This past weekend I went out of town and took my Windows 7 laptop with me -- since I returned home, it has been unable to connect to my wireless network. Other devices in my home connect to the network just fine, and the problem laptop has always been fine until now. My network card is an Atheros AR9285, and I'm attempting to connect to a Medialink router with WPA password protection and AES encryption.

My wireless network icon in the task bar has a yellow sign with an exclamation point in it. It says "No Internet access."

I have tried:

-rebooting the computer
-unplugging and restarting the modem and router
-going to the command prompt and renewing my IP address with the command IPCONFIG/RENEW

None of this works.

Like I said, all other devices in my house connect to the wireless network with no problem. It's just this one laptop. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
 

A:Windows 7 laptop with Atheros AR9285 network card can't connect to wireless network

Three things to try ...

If you have McAfee please see the sticky thread at the top of this (Networking) forum.

Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

Revert to a System Restore Point before the weekend.

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.

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

I double-click and see my network showing and I only have to check the option to connect to the network even if it is not secure to have the possibility to hit connect.

I have 3 computers all running 64bit Windows Home premium all have 802.11n cards. 2 have no problem connecting to the wireless network the 3rd can see the network but won't connect or has the dreaded yellow exclamation mark with limited connectivity.

This seems to be a windows issue but not sure. When I look at the wireless profile in windows it says the security is WEP but the router is set up as WPA-2. I have tried changing the setting in Windows to WPA-2 but that then generates another error in the network discovery window saying the settings are not correct or something to that effect.


1) I have reinstalled the driver didn't work.
2) I have removed the security altogether didn't work.
3) reset the router didn't work (Although as stated earlier the other 2 computers connect with no problems)
4) Deleted wireless profile and started again didn't work.

The following worked untill I restarted the computer but would not after that even if I applied the same steps.

1) Assigned a static IP - This worked but once I restarted the computer it would no longer connect. Tired different IP address from 192.168.1-149. No joy
2)Copied the network profile from both the other machines same result as #1.

A:Can see wireless network but won't connect

Has the system ever connected to the network at anytime? WPA-2 would be the correct setting if you could change it to that and not get the error everything would clear right up. What is the exact error? Have you tried using WEP on the router and connecting the 3rd computer to see if it will connect just to check to see if the adapter is good? I know I'm asking a few questions just trying to see where were at.

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

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

A:Can't connect to wireless network

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 have a Microsoft Wireless G Router and PCMCIA Card.

I use Rogers High Speed Internet in Toronto and they assign Dynamic IP addresses.

When I connect directly to the modem through the built in NIC Card in the notebook I have no trouble accessing the internet but when I try to do this wirelessly I cannot connect.

I know the router is working as I can get into the configuration utility without any issues. I just can't get to the internet.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

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.

I'd refresh the network profiles by removing them and just connect to your home wireless network and make sure to add the correct pass-phrase or Wi-Fi security.

I have a signal. I removed the network key, so there is no password. I send packets but do not receive them. When I try to connect I get something like "cannot aquire a network address"

help would be great
 

A:Cannot Connect to Wireless Network

"help would be great". Well, information from you would be pretty good too!

I assume the signal is from your router; does it assign IP addresses (DHCP server enabled)? Are you using MAC address filtering? Do you have another PC that is getting an IP from the router?

Do you detect other signals, and are you SURE that you are connecting to yours rather than somebody else's?

Your OS? Your wireless adaptor? Are you using the adaptor's utility or WZC to manage it?

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

A:Can't connect to Wireless Network

and welcome to the Forum

I moved your thread to the Networking Forum.

First:

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

Then:

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

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

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

Then:

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

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


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

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

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

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

Hi guys, I'm having problems connecting to our wireless network. I'm not very good at the technical stuff so I'll try my best to provide as much info as possible on the situation so please bare with me and ask if you need anything else (which I'm sure you will).

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:

http://www.wikihow.com/Change-your-IP-Address-(Windows)

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!!)

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

Hi Guys
Just bought, off a friend, an Acer Aspire 7720G.
Before I bought it he wiped everything back to factory settings.
When I first started it it was ok, I downloaded google chrome, pokerstars and then all the microsoft updates.
Since then I have only managed to connect to the internet once. This was when I left the laptop for around 20 mins and when I went back it had connected to my home network.
We have 2 other laptops and an iphone that connects to the internet so I know the router is working.
I have disabled the wirless adapter and restarted the laptop but still get nothing.
As I type this, on another laptop!, the problem one has been on for 30 mins but still nothing.
I have spoke to my friend who I bought the laptop off and he says he had no problems whatsoever.

Help!!

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?

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?

Hi,

I'm the IT person of an office. One of the people I work with just bought this new laptop but is unable to connect to the wireless system in our office. I am at loss over what to do. The laptop sees the network and when I try connecting to it, it connects me, but once I try using the internet I get disconnected immediately. If I connect but don't use the internet it will keep me on for only a few minutes, if not seconds. Also, when I am connected I try ping-ing the gateway but I get 100% loss with a request timed out. The signal is strong so that can't be the problem, also other laptops are able to connect to the network so I know that's not the problem. I don't know what's going on it's like this laptop is refusing to connect to the network. The network is not secured, if that could have anything to do with it - I checked the firewall and it's disabled so that's not the problem either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

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.

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"
