Yoga 720 WiFi doesn't connect to one specific network (other devices connect to it)

Q: Yoga 720 WiFi doesn't connect to one specific network (other devices connect to it)

Hi,My brand new Yoga 720-15 IKB doesn't connect to my workplace wifi network which is a Mikrotik network. It does though connect to my home network or a mobile hotspot and works fine with them. I have installed all Windows 10 updates and Lenovo Companion updates. I have manually updated wifi card driver, I have also tried deleting network card and installing it again - but no success. Still doesn't connect to this one particular network in my workplace.To make it stranger my coworker has the same brand new Yoga 720, the only difference is that mine Yoga is grey and his is platinium color. We discovered also that two, supposedly the same computers have different network cards (he has Intel, I have Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A. This is a bit weird).I have also found out his Yoga connects easily to VPN at our workplace, my doesn't.Any ideas how to solve it? EDIT: my current network card driver is

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


I do a lot of wifi hotspot testing over Teamviewer. When the hotspot doesn't work I lose the Teamviewer connection. Is there any way to make Windows connect to a specific network after about 60 seconds or so?

If I can choose the specific wifi network to make Windows to connect to after a set amount of time my life would be much easier!

A:[Q] Make Windows Connect to Specific Wifi Network After 60 seconds?

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

So, there are two or more Wi-Fi SSIDs that you are authorized to connect to in the remote location?

Others in the forum might have a better way to do this, but I would use AutoIt in a ping loop - if the ping fails - then double check - if ping still fails, use netsh to create a connection. Or use the info here or here.

Hello, new to the forum and relatively tech-newb.
I got a new DSL connection in my apartment today. Router was set up fine and most devices are working (my iPhone, my friend's laptop and my old laptop). However I can't seem to connect to WIFI with my primary laptop (Windows 7). 
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network drivers.
I tried turning off the router and turning on again. 
I also tried resetting the TCP/IP stack with "netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt" and restarting. (Not entirely sure what that does but I read it somewhere). No improvement. 
I can provide two ipconfig logs. The first one is from my old laptop which is successfully connected to the WIFI network:

My laptop, phone, tablet all are able to connect and use the wifi I have set up, but my computer cant use the wifi.

It's a Windows 8.1, 64 bit, 4 years old. I've had it connected to the wifi during all of this time but today after turning it on it stopped working.

When I try to connect to the Wifi it says "Unidentified Network." In the Network Connections screen and in the pop up side tab in Networks on the wifi connection it says "limited."

Any ideas on anything that could fix it?
Some pictures I took that might help a bit: https://imgur.com/a/MCO72

Also I tried to connect to it using Ethernet cord but it also says "Unisentified Network"

Hi all,

I followed this tutorial, and after playing around with it for a couple of days, decided to remove the ad-hoc network through the manage networks window. After removing it, I have been unable to connect to any wireless networks, I've tried deleting the profile and creating a new one, reinstalling the driver, updating the driver, nothing seems to work. I really really do not want to do a reinstall, and I was hoping you guys could help me get my wireless back up and running. Right now I'm using wired, which will work for a while, but I'd still prefer to get wireless working, since my wired isn't in the most convenient location.....I have an Intel WiFi Link 1000 BGN adapter on my ASUS UL20A-A1 laptop.

Thanks for the help !

Product Name: Hp Omen 15
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Wifi card: Intel Wireless-N 7260

Hi guys,
since some days my wifi has stopped working.
If I click on Wifi icon it shows only ONE (max two) NETWORK:

And I live in a building with 20+ networks, as you can see from WiFi Analyzer (I'm the red one on the right)
If I deactive/reactive Wifi with fn+f12, it goes to Airplane mode and to Wifi mode again and it eventually shows all the networks:

My Wifi is on the top. If it's saved, Windows connects to it and then it drops the connection; if it's not saved and I try to connect, it says "You're not able to connect to this network".
The fun fact is that after some seconds every network disappear and only one is showed (probably the neighbour one..I dunno).

I've already tried to HARD-RESET the notebook keeping the power button for 10/15sec with the laptop turned off.
I've already tried to follow these instructions (http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04649175) updating drivers (Intel,, [Windows 10 default], 18.32.0 [Lastest drivers]) with no success. Everytime I install a new drivers, I uninstalled the previous one + Wireless software + reboot.

I tried to uncheked "Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power" on my Wifi hardware settings without success.

The HP Network support says I didn't choose a Wifi (Really? The problem is I don't see my Wifi on the list!).

I have a Yoga 13 running Windows 8.1 that has recently stopped connecting to my home wireless network. All the latest Windows Updates are installed at this time.I have uninstalled the Realtek Network device and the related drivers, rebooted and tested without luck.This unit sees the networks and if I enter a wrong password, it asks for a re-entry of the correct password.  When the correct password is entered it says "Checking Network Requirements" then fails with "Can't connect to this network"None of the troubleshooting services have been successful.All my other devices connect without any issues. I am runniing a Netgear R8000 Nighthawk wireless router. What is odd is that this laptop will connect to my iPhone 6 hotspot without any issues. I suspected a windows update may be the cause so I downloaded drivers from Lenovo for the wireless adapter.  Uninstalled the current ones, rebooted, and then installed the Lenove supplied drivers.  Still no joy. Any other suggestions short of a reinstall of the OS? Cheers! Hawkeye007

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.

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.

Hello. I already googled but still can't find the answer.Yesterday i was trying to network a pc and a laptop. The pc can go through the files of the laptop but the laptop can't. So I tried to fix the laptop (I am an intern i still dont know much) by going to Network and sharing (Windows 7 is the OS) and click some things. THen after that i can't connect to a specific wifi connection. I can still connect to others but there's this specific connection that i cant connect to. Other computers can connect to that wifi but i can't. what should i do? I am afraid because they might get angry with me when i am trying my best to help. Please help me. Thank you.

A:Can't connect to specific wifi, but others can

Post the error or what happens when you try to connect.

If however you're getting something like 'Unable to connect' when you try go to network and sharing center - > Manage wireless networks(top left corner) - > Find your network in the listed, right click it and remove it.

This will remove the saved information for that network. Now when you go to reconnect it should prompt you for the password and allow you to connect.

So I am attempting to connect to the wifi network at my girlfriends place, which I have done fine previously, but my laptop cant find it at all. I have tried restrarting my laptop, installing new drivers for the atheros wireless adaptor, resetting the router, but it still wont show up. It connects fine to other (older and newer) devices, and works fine when connected via ethernet cable, but it is hardly practical to sit on top of the router all day.

My laptop detects other networks fine, such as those of the neighbors and connects to my own home network fine. I have also tried deleting the saved network and manually connecting to the network while also checking the box about connecting even if the network is not broadcasting its SSID. Still nothing. I also checked power management settings and made sure it the network adaptor was using max performance power settings.

Previously when I set up their router, it was broadcasting on a single channel between 1 and 11, cant remember exactly which, and I have no reason to believe they have changed it.

A:Cant find specific Wifi Network but works fine with other devices.

connect by ethernet and have a look at the name and channel- it could be using channel 12 or 13 which is allowed outside the US but your PC is using channels 1-11 if US based setting

look at the SSID name and if indeed set to broadcast

I have seen that issue a few times - although xirrus usually shows the channel

all those signals are very low

I have been unable to connect to anything on my wired network, for about the last week. I don't remember making any changes however, I just became unable to connect.

I having done a little troubleshooting.

1. I can connect to the shares of my Windows Home Server if I use the IP address. The name does not resolve.

2. Flushed DNS and restarting DNS server. Flushing DNS works on one client, to allow browsing by the name & restarting DNS works on the other. However neither works after a restart.

3. Only my Wifi clients are experiencing this issue. My wired clients, desktops, PS3, Xbox 360, and Boxee can connect perfectly.

This issue is not limited to my server. I can't connect to shares on my desktop, nor print to my wired printer.

Some network background:

I have DSL through CenturyLink and have a Linksys E2000 router.

Sent a test page from one laptop to the printer at 6:36pm, it finally printed at 6:48pm....

Hi so my router is downstairs and my room is upstairs. I tried connected multiple devices to the wifi from my room but none of them will connect so the issue definitely isn't my device. if I step outside of my room, everything seems to connect and run perfectly. My laptop and phone can detect the wifi network it just isn't able to connect, does anyone have any idea why this is the case and now can I solve this issue?

A:Cannot connect to wifi in one specific room?!?!

Maybe the signal in your room is too weak. Weak signal could be caused by an obstruction or unfortunate orientation of the router's antenna(s).

Or maybe there is wireless interference in your room (e.g., from a neighbor's network that comes easily through a window into your room but is obstructed in other parts of the house).

If you have a computer running Windows ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows Vista or latter I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Chrome tells me 'DNS Probe No internet." Internet explorer tells me im not connected to the internet.

I did some research on the internet and tried the following things:

Uninstalled my wifi adapter and reset my computer. Didnt fix it.

Ipconfig release and renew. DNS flush. Reset my computer. Didnt fix it.

Tried the Windows troubleshooting etc. Didnt fix it.

Tried and - no response.

Hey, I'm a bit of a tech idiot so I'm in a pretty bad spot right now. The thing is, I'm trying to connect to a wifi that requires a username and password, I've used this wifi before and been using it for almost a year but then it suddenly stops working and window 10 just tells me "can't connect to this network" after I type the credentials.
There's another thing too, the same thing happened to my Iphone at the same time and I couldn't reconnect, the simple fix I had for that was forgetting the network and then rejoining and seeing that I had to accept to something I think it was a custom profile or agreement I'm not sure but I recall getting this on windows the first time I connected so I started to think maybe they updated the agreement or something and I have to reaccept on windows, so I forgot the network and did everything but the accept certificate/profile/whatever wont show again and it's pretty frustrating.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I am experiencing a problem with my Windows 8.1 Laptop connecting to the local network through wireless. Here is what I have tested/know:

When I use the W8.1 laptop and try to connect via WiFi to my home router I can either never connect (90% of the time) or the connection is very slow and drops after a short time (10% of the time).Problem has been apparent for a month or so but seems to be getting worse.If I set up my 4G phone as a WiFi Access Point I can connect to internet via W8.1 Laptop without problem.If I connect the laptop via a cable to my home router there is also no problem.The problem seems worse when I am on battery power but also exists when plugged in (but I cannot confirm this, just something I have noticed).

There is an Android phone, iPhone, Nexus, Kindle and a Windows 7 laptop (on it now) in the house all able to connect fine via WiFi to my home router.The problem exists even if I disable all above devices (I can check my router and see no devices are connected via wireless).I have used a WiFi Scanner to confirm there is no other network using the same channel.On the W8.1 Laptop I have tried to forget the network and reAdd it. I have also run ipconfig /renew but nothing is able to get me back.I noticed that in available Network connections when I reboot the Laptop I sometimes see (listed along with my Wifi) a connection called 'Hidden Network' but I don't know what that is.The W8.1 laptop is an Acer Aspire V7 (64bit)The router is a Sky Hub

Basically, what's happened is that after transferring my old PC's data onto my new one, and putting that one in place of my old one, therefore hooking up my modem to it, my wireless devices have been having trouble connecting to the router. Everything's hooked up fine, and it was working perfectly before, but now my devices such as my laptop and Droid Pro can SEE the router (As in connect to it and say that they are getting excellent signal strength), but when I try to open my browser, it asks as if I'm not connected to anything at all.

I hope that this is the correct location to post this issue, and that this request for assistance finds you in good health.

The core issue in my home is that I cannot connect to the WiFi router, an all-in-one modem+router provided by my ISP. The brand is Arris, if that helps ascertain what I'm talking about. Now, I run an Ethernet cord from the router to my computer: the computer works just fine. As of a day ago, though, none of the home's Apple devices will connect to the network, despite reboots, password retypes, and shouting at them. Each device (two phones and an ipad) can identify my network, but they cannot join. Additionally, there is an old laptop that cannot connect anymore.

Here's the wrinkle as near as I can see it. The Nexus 7 connects just fine via the WiFi, and it has not needed to reboot or to have the password retyped.

The aforementioned devices have suddenly stopped working, and despite searching these and other forums, my Google-fu has not yielded any answer to this particular question AFAIK. I have seen others post this information, so though I'm not sure it's relevant, I'll provide it just in case. Thank you for your time and attention in this matter, whatever you feel that you can and have spared.

A:Unable to Connect to Wifi on All Devices

I am the owner of Yoga 2 Pro and I have been using the integrated bluetooth that came with it to connect to a HC-05 Bluetooth module and that worked well for a while. After an update or something, my laptop decided to just stop being able to connect to the HC-05 module. In the add a device menu, the HC-05 name can clearly be seen but when the device is selected to open it just continues to load to no avail. And of course, the Bluetooth is on, I have verified that. It is not the module because I have two modules and cannot connect to either. And my friends my friends can connect.  Another detail:Because I was doing this for a project for someone who may not have integrated Bluetooth, I also purchased a Bluetooth dongle and connected to the HC-05 using the dongle and was able to connect using that. When the Bluetooth stopped working, I was no longer able to connect via the dongle and since have uninstalled it. What have I tried:I uninstalled and reinstalled the Bluetooth drivers twice and do not know any other possibilities.If anyone could give me guidance in troubleshooting methods or has experience with this I would appreciate the help.

DISCLAIMER: This is my first post so I apologize for any mistakes I make.

Hello all,

Yesterday morning upon waking up I discovered that the Wifi in my house was no longer working. It had worked fine the day before but stopped working completely overnight. At first I thought it might have been Charter Communications (My ISP) throttling the internet due to our bandwidth (My Mom watches a TON of Netflix). But the internet works fine with our two home desktops. It is the same connection but devices such as my iPhone 4, Nexus 7, iPad 3, iPhone 5, etc. are unable to get internet access. They are able to connect to the wifi and you are able to see the bars, but when trying to connect to the internet you get a network error message.

To try to fix this problem I ran measurmentlab (test for throttling), my virus scan (McAfee), and malwarebytes. I was unable to see any noticeable change in my problem.

I am hoping someone might know what I am doing wrong, but I haven't been able to find a thread that has helped me out thus far.

Thanks for reading, Nick

Read other 7 answers

About a week ago, my laptop just stopped connecting to my wifi. I have an HP Pavilion dv6 running Windows 7 (64-bit). I've had this laptop for about four years, if I'm not mistaken, and I have never had problems such as this before. It can detect neighboring connections, but it just doesn't detect my personal wifi. The router/modem is not the problem because I can connect to them with my other devices just fine (Samsung Galaxy S3/S4). I am able to connect via Ethernet cable, but of course this is a terrible inconvenience. Cuddling my router is not something I feel I'd want to do just to get some work done.

I have tried:
- restarting my router (Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router model WNDR3400)
- restarting my laptop
- system restore
- uninstalling and reinstalling wireless drivers (originally was Intel WiFi Link 1000 BGN, when reinstalled it changed to Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000)
- changed router settings (router channel, password/security options)
- manually connecting through Control Panel (SSID is not set to be hidden, but still couldn't be found)
- troubleshooting (nothing was found)
- updating basically everything (router firmware, drivers, software, etc.,)

Long story short, none of this worked. I feel as though I have tried everything I could find within multiple forums and endless internet surfing, but I am simply out of ideas at this point.
The connection on my other devices is slow, but they connect nonetheless.

Switched over the internet service provider to Time Warner. We are using the same router we have used before the switch (which was also with Time Warner service provider) and everything was working FINE before the switch. But now, with the new modem from service provider something is wrong -- My roommate is unable to connect her laptop, and her phone to the wifi even though the network is being detected. I can only connect to my laptop, which was the laptop I had opened to verify connectivity when the Technician was there. Also, my I-phone is unable to connect to the network even though it detects it. It's very odd considering we had the technician come out to resolve this issue in the first place. Could it be that the DHCP server has been turned off, so it's allowing only one device to connect to the one IP address on the modem?
Or do we need to delete the wifi networks off of our computers and other devices? My roommate tried that on her devices and still didn't connect. Please help.

Do you know if your new modem includes WiFi? Is so, when you tested the connection with the technician present, did they have you connect wirelessly to your existing wireless router or to the modem itself?

Assuming you are running some version of Windows on the computer that can connect, please go into the Windows DOS/Command prompt screen and run an IPCONFIG /ALL command. Then copy and paste the complete results of the command here.

I have a netgear router(maybe my first problem). My phone and kindle get a great wifi signal but the computer itself has zero signal and cant connect to the internet. Can anyone please help????

A:devices connect to wifi but puter has no internet connection

If the computer is running Windows ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If your only email accounts are free (Hotmail, gmail, etc.) try this direct link. If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:


[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

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

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I'm having problem with my Dell Laptop's wi-fi connection
Currently, I cannot connect to my apartment's public wi-fi. It requires a login page but when I tried to connect to it as new connection, I did not get the 'Set Wifi to' Home/Work/Public screen and it does not register in my 'Manage Wireless Connection.' It keeps on showing Unidentified Network, No Internet Access

The wi-fi is working perfectly on my other devices. I did try uninstall/install driver and other solutions I found on the net, but none working.

Please help. Thanks

My HP Stream 11 laptop will not connect to specific networks. One day out of the blue, it just refused to connect to my main home wifi network, but would connect to every other wifi network. It isn't a problem with the network itself because it works fine on every single other device in the house. I have run diagnostics to no success and it says the drivers for my wireless adapter are up to date. I even performed a factory reset and erased all my data, still no success. Keep in mind this computer connects fine to other wifi networks but not my home one...what could be the problem here, and what are the steps to fix it? Thank you.

A:HP Stream 11 won't connect to specific network

Hi, the Stream 11 only supports 2.4 GHz Wifi so make sure that your home router supports that.

A few days ago my norton 360 ran out of its trial, so i uninstalled it through the control panel, i then downloaded avast and installed that (i did this at my mums place, the wireless is fine there) i then went to my uncles place and noticed the wireless wasnt working, and he told me to insall Nod32 so i uninstalled avast and installed Nod32 ( i thought avast was stopping me from connecting ) but that didnt solve the wireless problem.

He then told me to download the norton 360 removal tools to completly remove it because that might have been causing the issue, but that still didnt work.

So to sum it up, my laptop can connect to the wireless at my mums fine but when i go to my uncles it just doesnt want to connect ( but it will connect with a cable ). Ive tried restarting the router, turning it of (leaving it for a few mins) then turning it back on, ive installed the new updates, disabled my network adapter, tried to troubleshoot the problem but still nothing.

Help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

A:Cannot Connect to a specific wireless network.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Did you try removing the info for the connection at your uncle's and starting fresh?
open the Network and Sharing Center
select Manage wireless networks
right click on the one for your uncle's WAP
select Remove network
restart the computer
attempt to reconnect to your uncle's WAP

Hi there @Dee85 Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you are having troubles with connecting to your home network; I am happy to help. Have you tried connecting to a different network with this notebook?Does the wifi (available connections) show up on your notebook at all?Have you tried resetting your wireless router? The error you are getting sounds like the router is not passing on a local IP address to your notebook. The problem could be on either side of that. Try working through these.Troubleshooting wireless network and Internet (Windows 8)Also, you can look at the power management for your wireless adapter:Disable the Power Off option for the adapter:1. Open Device Manager. (Win Key+R > type devmgmt.msc > OK)2. Expand the Network adapters.3. Right click on the Ethernet/Wireless Adapter and click Properties.4. Click the Power Management tab.5.

Wifi doesn't connect when i move away from wifi router. I have a wifi router installed in my drawing room where i get good browsing speed on phones and laptops. But the problem starts when i take my laptop from drawing room to my bedroom which is not more than 5 mtrs from router. Wifi signal drops to zero on laptop whereas it remains decent on phones. Earlier my laptop used to connect in bedroom as well..This is happening lately. Is there any solution?

I am ready to give up on HP AND Windows 7.  My laptop worked fine until a week ago - did all - reset router, plugged HP 15 laptop into router....wireless has stopped working - low signal sometimes if I spend hours removing and reinstalling, etc.
Reinstalled network adapter - have Kaspersky 2017 - tried turning it off.  Using Windows Firewall - tried turning off.
Keeps saying network adapter has invalid IP config.  Laptop of my husband next to mine is working fine!  Same settings.
Have done EVERYTHING.....running HP Network Diagnostics....same errors - problem w/wireless adapter or access point and "wireless connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration.
Previously I used to see my neighbors wifi network names in the bar at the bottom where the wireless strength shows.  Now only see my computer/homegroup (which I also deleted and reset umpteen times)....is this a clue?
Thank you.

I am having this issue with a Surface Pro 3 on a dock, that when it is plugged in to a certain port it doesn't recognize the internet connection. If I take the surface to a different port and plug it in it works, if I get a different surface and plug it in to the port I am working with it works. Its only when the surface I am working with is plugged into that specific port, that it doesn't work. I need this surface plugged into this port, I can't plug it in anywhere else.
I have tried updating drivers, changing the dock, and also plugging in a USB to Ethernet adapter to bypass the dock. Nothing has worked. I also can't just get a different Surface because I don't have another surface with Win 10 on it. I need to have this Surface connected to this port but it will not work.

Very weird issue I cannot figure out. My laptop can connect to the network, the internet, and all other mapped drives/servers. For some reason my laptop will not connect to 1 specific server. I've tried by server name, IP address, I can ping it...everyone around can connect to this server. I've removed and added myself back on to the network...it's driving me crazy. Any ideas?

Thx in advance for any suggestions.

I have 2 networks available with internet access, one is my land line and the other is 3G.

So is there any way to force a program to always use the same network when it connects to the internet?

My end-game is to use the networks for different specific tasks.

Thanks in advance for any replies!

A:force programs to connect through specific network?

To my knowledge it isn't possible unless third party applications are used .

When faced with multiple interfaces the machine will first use the destination IP address in order to determine which interface to use. Normally this is used so that you can access machines that are in different subnets. In terms of the interent the machine will have a default route ( which means if it is faced with an IP address that isn't on its LAN (Typically an internet IP address) the machine will forward the information to the router. In multiple interface environments you may have two default routes to different routers. In your case, one to the LAN wired connection and the other on the 3G connnection. If a machine is tied between two different routes it will use the metric to determine the best path to take. Normally a wired connection will have a lower (better) metric than a 3G connection so the machine will use that interface to connect to the internet.

The only possible way that I could think that this would work would be to either change the metric of the connection that you wish to use so that it is the lowest forcing your machine to use that connection or to disable any interfaces that you don't wish to use when connecting to the internet which will then force the machine to use the only possible router that it can communicate with.

Hopefully this will help explain how a machine determines what interface to use when faced with multiple connections to the internet an... Read more

I have a strange problem. My laptop suddenly stopped connecting to the wifi network (comcast) last night. Interestingly my lenovo tablet, mobile phone and another laptop are able to connect to my wifi network without any issues.

I have also tried the following steps to troubleshoot:
1. switching off the router for 30 secs
2. Resetting the router
4. Restarting the computer
5. Releasing the ip and disconnecting the computer from the network followed by a reconnect.
6. Manually attempting to connect to the wifi network

Note: Interestingly I was able to connect to a neighbor's unsecured wifi network so I am presuming the wireless adapter is working.

I have run out of ideas on how to trouble shoot this further. could any one kindly help ? I have pasted below the windows Network Diagnostics report

Remove the wireless security
Is your wireless security enabled?

if it does - log back into the router and try with the wireless security enabled again

OK, have a strange one, that I am hoping someone has seen before and can give me some advice.

Have a small network with a Cisco router coming from a TWC modem. A couple of switches and Wireless access points off of the router.

Problem just started on Friday, worked fine for over a year before.

Any IOS (iphone, Ipad, etc.) can connect to any of the WAPs, but nothing else (desktops, laptops, android phones, printers, etc.) can connect.
They say they connect to the network, but there is no internet access.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.. Chris

A:Only IOS Devices can connect to our wireless network

They say they connect to the networkClick to expand...

Please be more specific. They can successfully ping the router? Ping each other? Display the router's status or configuration pages?

These connections w/o internet access are both Wi-Fi and ethernet?

Im having problems connecting my laptop (Win. 7) to my network. I am able to connect to my network with various different devices EXCEPT my laptop. There for I've concluded this is not a problem with my network itself. Its something to do with my laptop. I am able to "connect" to my network but says in have "Limited Access". My Ipv4 & Ipv6 say not connected. I've tried connecting via Ethernet cable, but no luck. I've tried everything from restarting my laptop and router to opening command prompt and refreshing. I was just able to connect to internet a few hours ago. Also, I noticed this problem first at a friends on a totally different WiFi network. That is when the problem started. I thought maybe there was something wrong with his network, but that's not the case.

Really need some help here.
