Unable To Connect My Laptop To My Network

Q: Unable To Connect My Laptop To My Network

Hi everyone,

I bought a new laptop and I am unable to connect to my wireless network.

Here's some information that might be useful to find out what the problem is:

My computer: Windows XP version 2002
My brand new laptop: Windows 7 Premium Familial Edition
My router: Linksys Broadband router with 4 -port switch, model WRT54G

I have no clue what I am doing wrong, I changed the workgroup of my laptop to the same one as my computer and it's not working.

Thanks for the help.

Preferred Solution: Unable To Connect My Laptop To My Network

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

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

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

A: Unable To Connect My Laptop To My Network

I am in the same boat. I can connect to my WRT54G via Ethernet cable but not wireless. Linksys says that a new program will be out very soon called Network Magic to connect to the WRT54G, and other models I presume, to computers with Windows 7.

Another message says to turn on the wirelss capability, but the switch on the left, front corner is turned to wireless ON. It did work fine, but suddenly can't connect. I appreciate any suggestions.

Why is it that I am able to connect my laptop to my home network, but my cousin is unable to connect his laptop to the same network? He and I have both been unsuccessful in trying to make a connection with his laptop. We were very careful to enter the correct information -- Security Type; Encryption Type; and Security key/passphrase -- so I cannot understand why his laptop won't connect, especially since entering the same info allowed my laptop to connect. Obviously, there is some other reason why we've failed thus far. Could it be that we're missing a vital step in the process? At one point I unplugged my router for 20 seconds and plugged it back in. Obviously, that didn't work.

I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who might be able to help. Thank you.

For the fastest repair option, you could do a repair install.

Repair Install

You do not need to upgrade your OS to fix the issue.

When did this start happening?

Install any hardware or software recently?

Well I was uploading some videos on Youtube on my laptop when the wireless connection just went off on its own. It could still detect my home wireless network but when I try to connect to it from the list of available networks it just stops halfway while trying to connect and refreshes the list again. When I tried right-clicking and the connection icon on the taskbar and choose repair, I always end up with "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following could not be completed: Connecting to the wireless network"

I don't think it has anything to do with the settings in the laptop because I get the same thing when I restored my C-drive to how it was 3 months ago using a back-up.

The house computer that uses the local area connection can still connect to the internet but I'm not sure whether any settings were changed here that would affect my laptop. I can't really restore the stuff here too to before my problem coz there's s lot of my dad's stuff are in here.

So is my problem because of something to do with the settings or did something in my laptop got spoilt @[email protected]?
 

A:Laptop unable to connect to wireless network

I assume you've already tried rebooting the laptop. Next step would be to shut down all computers; unplug the router; plug in the router; boot computers. If still a problem please show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[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 think this is the right styatem but not 100%Anyway, I've had trouble with my laptop since purchased last May, it's still within its 1year warranty. Always has been slow to boot then slow to navigate. Now it's so slow I can't access my network settings and it's not connecting to network, am at home and have connection on other devises. I installed McAfee in June/July after free trial ran out so can't see it being a bug, plus this laptop has always been very slow.

Hi there,
I have just recently bought a Dell Inspiron laptop and am unable to connect to the network I have already set up at home. The desktop connects fine, my old laptop did and my sister's laptop (or anyone else for that matter) is able to connect to the network.
My computer recognises that the network is there and records a stron signal however, when I click to connect it doesn't ask for the password (which I know) and automatically says it is unable to connect.
Which settings do I need to change? I am hesitant to change the home computer settings as mine is the only laptop that has problems connecting.
Thanking you
 

A:Unable to connect to home network on my laptop

Remove all the stored network profiles from the new laptop and search for a new wireless network. It should ask for the password in this case.

hi,
i am trying to connect to a network with my dell laptop (win xp sp2).This is the first time ive tried connecting to this particular network, but ive never had a problem connecting to other wireless networks. I have an Intel Pro wireless card , it picks up the network with a very strong signal, but when i click to connect i get the error 'Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. Network may no longer be in range.Please refresh and try connect again'
Ive refreshed , and gone to services.msc to restart the wireless zero config. Its a secure network so i unsecured it as a test but i still get the above error.The other laptop using this network can connect fine.
My ISP told me its my wireless adaptor, (even tho it works fine on loads of other networks - ive been travelling and used so many with no probs). I called dell and they checked it out, we updated the drivers, also uninstalled and reinstalled the adapter. Dell thinks its a s/w conflict between the adapter and the router. I had a spare linksys usb adapter (which worked fine before) so ive just disabled the intel pro and installed this instead..still getting the same error message.
Just some info about the router...we got it from the ISP, they came and set it up.Its a modem and wireless router in one, the make is netopia. My ISP still say its my computer thats the problem ,pointing to the fact that as the other laptop can connect this is proof that the modem works fine.

Hi. I've been googling and trying all sorts of solutions suggested on online help forums but none of them seem to work. Hopefully you guys can help me with it.

I'm using a laptop running windows 7, 64-bit.

My laptop isn't new, and i did not do anything out of the ordinary to it when my lan connection suddenly stopped working. I am an exchange student currently studying and living in a corridor-hostel in Sweden. Every room has a lan connection (directly from the wall). The lan connection has been working fine for the past 1 month. But suddenly, my computer is no longer able to identify it. Other people have brought their laptop to my room and are still able to connect via the lan connection. Thus it is definitely an issue with my laptop.

Hi,

I am hoping that someone can help me.
We have three computers at home two which are connected to router and working fine and my laptop.
My laptop was connecting to my home wireless network until my daughter used it last. Now it will not connect at all
I used to have to follow the steps below for some reason and then it would connect fine:
Wireless network connections
Change advanced settings
Wireless Networks tab
I would have to tick the checkbox USE WINDOWS TO CONFIGURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS
Then into properties for my wireless network and in association retype my password and then it would connect. (it seemed like to much work every time but it still worked)
There was other networks in the list which i deleted and wireless network connection shows that the network connection strength is excellent but it just seems to get stuck aquiring the network address. I have tried repair etc.

Can someone please help me with this as maybe it's just something simple!!

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help. We recently installed a new wireless router, and all the other computers in our house can access the internet. But for some reason I can only connect to the network, even though it says there's full connectivity.

I called the customer careline for our internet providers, and they said it was a problem with my computer settings, rather than the router. But they said they couldn't advise me any further unless I paid for it, hence my need to look for advice elsewhere....

Thanks!

I need real help. I had cable internet 12mbs installed last September (2010) in my one bedroom apartment. Before that, I was connecting to a spotty 1.5mbs network that was open next door (with their permission). I was able to obtain fast and efficient internet access for about 3 or 4 months and then it became intermittent. For the past 2 months I have been unable to connect through my home cable modem/router at all. I have been to the cable company and they have tested the cable modem/router and the signal which comes into the router and out at fast speeds.

I have been trying to connect to my university's network, but I am unable. I USED to be able, but now something changed and I can't. I am pretty sure that my Ethernet card is working properly, since when I plug in the cord I get a blinking green light, and it says that the driver is installed and working properly. Plus, when I run IPCONFIG, it gives me an IP Address and Subnet Mask. However, it does NOT give me either a Connection-Specific DNS Suffix nor a Default Gateway. I checked, and I am pretty sure that I have no firewalls (including the built-on XP one) running. Any idea why I can get an IP address and not connect to the network? My computer is registered with the university, and I used to be able to get online.

Windows XP Pro

1 GB PC3200 RAM
On-Board NIC

Let me run down the spiel of this network saga:

Power surge happened Sunday afternoon. Sunday morning, I was connected fine. The orange light on the NIC shows it's on, but no connectivity. I have Comcast. Comcast modem is showing 4 lights - Power, Receive, Send, and Online. There is also a PC/Activity Light. That is suppose to show orange and nothing is blinking there. I also have a wireless network setup. The wireless router is responding and it seems to be getting activity from the LAN. I have a laptop that is setup wireless, but it won't connect to the internet since my modem doesn't have LAN activity.

I was on the phone w/ Comcast trying to figure this out. Replaced out network cables, reset modem numerous times, reset PC numerous times, hard-wired modem to the PC, hard-wired modem to my laptop with LAN enabled, still nothing. Comcast said to replace out modem. Replaced it out and still no connectivity. Brought my PC up to work to determine if it's a bad NIC or not. I had a live connection and I notice the orange light on my NIC is still on with or without any ethernet cable. Powered the PC on and still no connectivity. Uninstalled NIC and the PC detected the NIC. Still no connection. Checked in BIOS to see if on-board LAN is on and it is on. Reset BIOS and still no connectivity. Any other suggestions or bad NIC?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi,

Since recently I am no longer able to connect to my router from one of my laptops. The connection is failing wireless as well as by cable. My other two laptops are having no problem at all so I think it is a problem with the laptop.

I check other posts and found I could do a TCP/IP reset so I have done that.
If have executed these commands on a elevated command line:
- netsh winsock reset catalog
- netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

A:Unable to connect to this network

and welcome to the Forum

I moved your threat to the Networking Forum. Has this pc ever connected to your home network before?

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

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 a... Read more

hello,

I've got a laptop that cannot connect to network anymore, both wireless and fixed. when it tries to connect to the network, it sets an ip address in the range of 169.254.0.0 -169.254.255.255
further more, i saw that the HP Wireless Assistant starts all by itself after a few minutes that I start the laptop, although the wireless adapter is disabled.
now, i keep the computer completely disconnected from the network trying to figure out what is it to be done.

Recently I switched ISPs to Qwest, after switching I noticed a severe lag in my wireless internet feed to my PC. I was able to connect to my network and access my internets as I pleased. Recently after that my mum had her laptop's wireless card fritz out. She called a gent from Geek Squad to come out and he re-worked the wireless set-up and updated the firmware for our router and everything. He was unable to get to my computer in time to set me into the network and as usual with them, their directions on how I am to set it up were forgotten and then never written down.

So, that night when I went to access my network it did not show up in the list of available networks. My wireless card is 2 weeks old and works fine, it's just a matter of integrating myself into the network. Any help would be very much appreciated.

A:Unable to connect to network on my PC.

Well first off, don't go to Geek Squad, they seriously don't know anything.

OKay and 2nd, I need more info, what is the wireless router model, what kind of secruity, what is your new ISP and if it comes down to anything, you may have to install a new update onto your ISP or for your router. My mother had the same problem when she got her new Vista laptop.

I have an Acer IconiaTab W500 with Windows 8 developer preview installed on it and I cannot get it to connect to my Cisco 1142 APs. I have a Guest network that is for b/g speeds only and requires [WPA2][Auth(PSK)]. I type the password in and Windows comes back and says something is wrong with the adapter or the access point.

I have taken the tablet over to StarBucks and was able to connect to their wireless network easily.

Of course Acer is no help. Since it came with Windows 7, that is the only support they can offer.

I have an Atheros AR9002WB-1NG wireless adapter. I have tried to install the Win7 drivers and it will not allow the installation to run. I can see all the wireless SSID around me, including my Guest network.

I have disabled the MS Kernal Debug Netwrok Adapter. I left the MS Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter enabled.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

A:Unable to connect to wireless network

Switch off your router, leave it for 10mins or something, try connecting again. First try without the Athros adapter.
EDIT: You could also try a different DNS server as well.

Hello all,

I have recently formatted my laptop because it didn't work properly anymore.
Now that it's working again, I find myself unable to connect to my wireless network.
I believe I should only have to enter my SSID code and network key while trying to access my connection.
This doesn't work.
When I try to repair the connection it hangs at connecting to wireless network.
Anybody have an idea what's wrong?

Thanks in advance

Did you install the wireless adapter drivers?
Look in device manager to see if there are any Yellow Marks indicating missing drivers.
You should be able to get your drivers from the maker of the laptop.

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum so please forgive me if this question has been asked and answered before-i'm not "techy" so I don't really know all the correct terms to do a search by.

I have a "new to me" laptop. Its a Dell Inspirion 9300. I am unable to log on to the wireless network. I see that there's an excellent connection and my computer is telling me that I am connected but when I try to access the internet, via Chrome, I get nada. I get a message telling me that the DNS look up failed, I'm using Windows XP, have Norton Internet Security and am using the Wise 365 Registry Cleaner (it was acting funky before I downloaded the registry cleaner). Is there anything else I need to include? I know the computer's old, but I never had a problem accessing the internet before.

Thanks in advance!

Hi
I've searched the web endlessly trying to solve this problem with one of my laptops - without any luck at all. Hoping someone here is able to assist.

My main PC, 2 laptops, an iPhone and an iPad all connect to my home wifi network. All worked perfectly until 3 days ago.

The 2 laptops and my PC all run Windows 8.1 (all updated). 3 days ago my Toshiba Qosmio stopped being able to connect to my home network. All other devices still connect perfectly.

The Qosmio doesn't detect my wifi network. I immediately went to the network adapter's (Qualcomm Atheros) website and downloaded the latest driver. Installed it and for a brief (very brief) time it could once again detect and connect to the network. Last 3 days unable to either detect or connect.

It detects other networks fine, and has no problems connecting to any other network - except mine (doesn't even detect mine anymore). It connects to the iPhone (when used as a hotspot) without any issues.

I've uninstalled and re-installed the new driver, re-booted the wireless router (several times), re-set the router to factory settings, used Windows trouble shooter, checked & deleted the netsh profiles. Re-booted the laptop a dozen + times, disabled (& uninstalled software) for the laptop's Bluetooth.

It simply stopped working.

I've tried everything I can find on the web - without any success at all. I've had the laptop sitting only a few cm from the router.
Not sure where else I can go with this now... Read more

Both my computers, Desktop (ethernet connection) and my laptop (wireless) were in the same network up until I changed my internet modem Hitron model CODA 4582U (Rogers cable, ON, CA). After doing the wired connection of the new medem to my desktop, since it does not have a wireless card or adapter, I am having difficulty in creating a homegroup because they are in two different network. In my desktop under system settings, network shows as WORKGROUP and but in my laptop under system settings network shows as ZNETWORK, it appears system has automatically defaulted it as domain network not as peer to peer. As such both the computers are not in the same network, WORKGROUP. I think because of that I am having difficulty in making my laptop to join the homegroup. In the laptop file explorer my desktop does not appear either under Network folder or Homegroup folder.

Further, through Control Panel > System I tried to change the name ZNETWORK to WORKGROUP. But is does not allow me to do that either, I can change only the name of the computer not the workgroup.

Any assistance in bringing thesee two computers under one network and to create a homegroup would be appreciated.
 

A:Unable to connect my two computers to the same network

Are you saying that you think the PCs are on different networks (in spite of being connected to the same router) or in different Workgroups? Having the PCs in the same Workgroup is not necessary for Homegroups, and not necessary for file sharing (but sometimes makes it easier).

If one of the PCs is in a Domain you must have joined the domain, as Windows does not default to Domain instead of Workgroup.

Please show a screenshot of the relevant portion of the System window, since you say that the discrepancy is shown there. 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.

Several minutes later, it will do the same thing again and I go through the same procedure again. This might happen several more times then it will be okay.

In instances like that 2 years ago, we can connect it seamlessly. But lately, I've been bringing it to school, and it cannot connect by wifi to any router or hotspot.I tried the suggestions from HP Support, like the modifications done in device manager, installing an updated driver for the wireless adapter, restoring the BIOS to its default setup, and others. Still, I can't connect to the wireless networks.Any suggestions?PS: The wireless network adapter in this laptop is a 'Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter

Okay, so here's the status. I can't connect to my network at all. There are no connections listed in the Network Connections menu in the Control Panel. The ipconfig /all results in the message 'Internal error. The request is not supported'. In the Device Manager, all the network adapter components are listed (mainly the Marvell Yukon controller), however they all have exclamation marks next to them. When checking their status they give the message 'Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)'.

I've tried reinstalling the controller drivers, as well as uninstalling the controller completely and reinstalling it.
I've also tried a few solutions (mainly from this site, actually), including the regsvr32 netshell.dll/netcfgx.dll/netman.dll commands in the cmd menu, as well as resetting tcp/ip using the netshell command.

I'm at an utter loss.
Tomorrow, I intend to open up the computer and take a look at the controller.
In the meantime, anyone have any other ideas.
Any help will be hugely appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
