hp omni 100 pc will not connect to my WIRELESS NETWORK

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I have a lenovo u160 running windows 7, a couple of days ago it seemed my computer was infected with something, giving a series of security warnings I had not seen before (not av security suite). It slowed the computer down for a few minutes.

After closing these messages, there seemed to be no problem, but then my computer was no longer connect to the internet. It connects to our router/wireless network, but not to the internet.

I tried resetting and unplugging the router and the modem, but still no luck. We have two other computers on the same network that are connecting to both the network and the internet.

I tried running rkill and malwarebytes twice and no malicious items were detected.

I restored the computer to an earlier point (2-3 days earlier)

On the toolbar in the bottom right of the taskbar, it shows a 5 white signal bars, with a "!" inside a yellow triangle.
If I click on the network button it states it is "connected" to the network. It describes the connection as "excellent" (4-5/5 bars).

Above the display of the available networks, it states

"currently connected to:
Unidentified network
No Internet access"

I am not computer savvy and have not run into this problem before. Thanks for your time and help.

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


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

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

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

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

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

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. 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.

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.

Ran into a whole different set of problems and error messages, but I've gotten all those resolved already. I connected a LAN line with still no luck. I even installed Firefox. With all that done it still won't connect to the internet. I've used up all my tech savvy\expertise and I'm at a lost. Anything else you can think of that I can try? Thanks in advance

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.

my desktop is running Vista Home Premium and is connected to a Linksys WRT54GS router. My other vista home premium laptop can connect to my network no problem and very quickly, as it has a built in wireless card. But my old XP SP2 desktop cannot connect to my wireless network. It gets stuck at the "Acquiring Network Address" step and won't pass it. I have a Dynex™ 802.11g Enhanced-G Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter. I have disabled the windows firewall and it still won't connect. I also tried connecting to my neighbors network which is unsecured with no password (just to test if it was my adapter) and it worked flawlessly. So what is wrong with my router that won't let my XP SP2 machine connect? Thanks for any help in advance

I'm using an Eeepc 900hd, just loaded windows 7 ultimate on it. My wireless driver is up to date (so it says, although I've tried to install a new driver, but it "doesn't work on this operation syste,").

I tried disabling the WPA password and it didn't work.

Any other suggestions?

A:Can't connect to the wireless network

hi and welcome to the forums
this is a problem that you will see on the threads quite frequently these are some the steps i take to resolve it
run windows troubleshooter
Reset to Default
Resetting your router or adapter back to factory default will erase any setting changes you have made. This is done because in theory this was the setting the router or adapter used when it was in working order. Reset to default if your wireless router or adapter is not transmitting a signal. This functions like the computer restore command for a computer.
In addition if your system runs Bonjour, or any other 3rd Network manager, remove them or disable them in local services

also try this
Type Cmd in the Start Search text box.
Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter keyboard shortcut to run a Command Prompt as an Administrator. Allow elevation.
Type route delete press enter.
Type ipconfig /flushdns press Enter
Restart your Computer.

netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt (run Command Prompt as Administrator)

1. Click on Start button.
2. Type Cmd in the Start Search text box.
3. Right click cmd in search results and click run as Administrator
4. Type netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt shell, and then press the Enter key.
5. Restart the computer.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Hi I hope someone can help!

I have lost all wireless connections on my lap top. My computer seems not to have any wireless connections available, although the wireless system is on and I can connect to it with other devises.
This happened yesterday after I installed updates. I have also tried returning to the last restore point but that seems not to have worked.
I have tried to the HP wireless assistant and that does not help matters.
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
Can anyone help with the next step please

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.



A:Cannot connect to wireless network.....sometimes!

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 have an old HP (Compaq) NC6000

Hi guys,

I cannot connect to my wireless network here at home. I see the network in the list of available wireless networks, but when I try to connect to it, the pc gets stuck at "identifying" and never gets on. Rarely this will occur on other networks as well, but I almost always can connect to networks other than my home one. The network works with my pc if I use a wire it, but it almost never does wireless. I also have three roommates all who can connect to the router wireless with no problems whatsoever.

I'm currently running Windows 7 on my laptop with an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN wireless card.

So far I have tried the following:
-disabling firewall
-updating wireless drivers
-turning off/on the modem and router

The last option (turning off/on the modem and router) has worked, but it seems to only work for a couple of hours, sometimes even less, after I reset the modem and router. Also, sometimes I get the "Windows detected an IP address conflict" message.

This is my ipconfig /all:

Hi everybody,

I'd like to know if anybody has had a similar problem or knows of a solution to something that's been driving me nuts for a few days.
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.
The funniest thing is that this afternoon the network connected for a few minutes, then disconnected at will!!!
I can always see my home network, but just can't connect ! I think somet... Read more

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.

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.

Is this your own wireless network or is it a neighbor's? Do you have another computer that can connect to it?

If its a neighbors its possible that they have mac authentication enabled so then random people can't connect.

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?

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

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.

Yesterday i was forced to clean reinstall the win7 32-bit RC as it died on me and i couldnt repair it, and now im having major problems connecting to my wireless network. I got my wireless card drivers installed all ok and when i go to connect to my network it connects saying it has limited connectivity and that the network is unidentified. I've tryed everything, assigning a static ip, changing the channel on my router, different wireless card drivers and various other things on these forums and nothing works.

btw it was working fine if slightly dodgy before i had to reinstall win7 last night. My wireless card is a NETGEAR wg311v2 (i have a newer card but it wont work on windows 7...but my older card does..go figure) and my router is a NETGEAR DG834PN

A:Cant connect to wireless network

From command prompt, type:

ipconfig /all

and see if your adapter has a valid physical address (mac) instead of all 0s or something. Recheck settings here as well.
