Unable to connect to wireless Home network

Q: Unable to connect to wireless Home network

Hello,

I have Verizon FIOS modem/router. Have a PC connected to it via hardline, works fine, the laptop cannot connect wireless to it. The Laptop was able to connect to other wireless networks. When I try to connect to home, it says "limited or no connectivity". When I connected to a router port with cable, but it worked fine when I disconnected. So it seems to me that it is having trouble with acquiring ip. When I chose "repair", it tried renewing ip and got 169 ip address instead of the usual 192.168.1.x. and could not connect. I tried giving it a static ip, but it did not work. Also, I tried changing the channel once, did not work. And I disable the XP firewall. I am wondering if perhaps changing the ip addresses on the router itself may fix the issue (perhaps in the 192.168.10.x range), perhaps with multiple open networks in the area, there is some kind of mixup. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have tried with another laptop sitting outside the house, and it went online and acquired ip correctly.

Thanks,
Marlon

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.)

Mine did the same thing this afternoon, I typed in the WPA/WEP key again and it worked.
I did try the one I created a while back but didn't work, then I used the one that was written on my modem/router and worked 100%.

Hope it helps.

After doing a clean install of Win XP Pro on a friends laptop I am having the following issues connecting to his secured wireless connection. An Apple Macbook in the family has no issues connecting wirelessly.

After selecting his wireless network and entering in the password when I had the settings set to "Obtain an IP Address automatically" in TCP/IP Properties it kept on attempting to acquire the address. When I selected "Use the following IP address" and entered in the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway it told me I was connected but I still was not able to view web sites either through IE 7 or Firefox. I had the "Preferred DNS Server" and "Alternate DNS server" fields empty.

I will attempt to use 208.67.222.222 as the "Preferred DNS Server" and 208.67.220.220 as the "Alternate DNS server". If that doesn't work could the supplied password be incorrect? Are the DNS Server addresses I will use pretty standard?

What would prevent me from using the "Obtain an IP Address automatically" option to connect successfully?

When I tried to access the settings of the Linksys G router I did not have the correct user name and maybe password also. I hope my friend knows the correct user name to modify the settings of the Linksys router.

Thank you for your expertise and time.

Try to connect without encryption first. A router reset to factory default settings will allow you to login!

How did you reset the modem? was it a reboot, or a full reset?? Try disabling encryption (turn off passwording)

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. 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.

Hi,

I am unable to connect to my home wifi from my laptop but it connects fine at work. All other devices (2 androids and 1 laptop) are able to connect to the home network. My laptop used to connect intermittently earlier - sometime the connection would be restored when i reset the router or restarted the laptop but now I'm just not able to at all. The message i get is either "Limited Access" or "Unidentified Network. No internet access" - the signal strength always is excellent. I have tried switching off and on the wireless router, have disabled and then enabled the wireless connec on the laptop, have reconfigured the wireless network on the router with a new network name and password but nothing works. However I am able to connect to the internet using the network cable - there were a few times where I couldn't do that either. I've tried browsing on several forums to get answers but haven't found any yet.

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!!

My PC has not been able to connect to our Internet (2Wire) for about a month now. All other computers connecting to it are working fine. In the past I have been able to connect very simply without any problems. Then one day I restarted the computer and haven't been able to connect since.

It does recognize that it is connected to a network when I check the Local area Connection Status. One thing that has been acting strange is the Windows Firewall. Every time I try to open it up it gives me this message:

"Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service?"

Everytime I click "YES" it says it cannot start the service.

Also, I've tried using a network setup CD that i created from a working computer and once i restarted the comp it gave me a message saying:

"C:\DOCUME~1\DAVID&~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\IXP000.TMP\WinXPChk.exe could not be found"

I would appreciate any help I can get.

I have 1 pc using vista ultimate and 2 laptops using vista home premium. I use a BT homehub 2 to which my pc is connected via ethernet and the laptop are connected via wireless connection. Network discovery has been activated on all 3 machines and all machines are visible on the network.

The problem I am having is: each of the laptops can share files and folders via the network, laptop 1 can share with the pc in both directions but laptop 2 can not access the pc even tho the pc can access laptop 2. When accessing the pc via the laptop i get an error message stating "\\FRANCIS-PC is not accessible. You may not have permission to use the network resource"

This problem has only come about since the laptop (os) was re - built. As a tempoary stop gap I have been using net-op remote control host and guest to allow laptop 2 to access the pc which was working fine, but now it states that the pc cannot be found even though it can be seen in the network window. I have tried pinging the pc and that was successful with no loss.

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.

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.

I'm having a weird wifi connectivity problem. My computer is suddenly unable to connect to my home network. Other devices can connect to this network fine, and my computer can connect to all other networks fine, it's just my computer with this one network. It recognizes the network with good signal strength, but it doesn't connect.

I had been using this home network for months without any problems. I don't remember exactly what I was doing at the time, probably streaming some tv show or something, and my computer suddenly disconnected, so I don't think there were any changes made on my end. For a couple weeks there was intermittent connectivity (like an hour or two a day), but now it won't connect at all. I share the router with a few other people in my building, and no one else has had any problems. My phone also connects without any problems. I've tried connecting to other networks at my friends' apartments and at my school and everything works normally. Naturally, I've restarted the computer and the router several times. I've reentered the password countless times and I'm positive it's correct.

Also, I don't know if this information is useful, but I dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04, and neither are able to connect.

Does anybody have an idea of what could be going on here?

A:Suddenly unable to connect to home network

Having the same issue in both Windows and Linux make me think it is either hardware or the only other common is the router. Did you try factory resetting the router?

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 to the place where I bought my laptop (purchased at Staples last summer). Others can connect though my wifi, but I cannot. It connects but gives me a DNS error.

other computers in the house (one running windows xp the other a mac) seem to connect with no problems what so ever.

any help would be great

A:Cannot connect to home wireless network

You are probably doing that in the Run command box. Instead type cmd first then the IPCONFIG command, or simply go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

Not too sure if the router can handle both .b and .g simultaneously. Other than that, I would suggest checking the SSID and key and make sure that the info on your machine matches the router's configuration. Also if you are using permit/deny access, make sure your notebook's MAC address is allowed to connect.

I have a work supplied laptop. Used to be able to connect to my home wireless network - this stopped working last week. It can connect to other wireless networks, both at the office and other public places, but can't connect to my home network.

I've tried:
Manually creating the wireless network
Removing the profile from regedit
Removing the profile from ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvcs\Profiles

It sees the network and attempts to connect, but never successfully connect. I have other laptops at home that are working just fine. The network is setup with WEP security, and I've entered/reentered the password several times.

Note, when I started this, the home network did not appear under the Manage Wireless Networks list in the Network and Sharing
Center.

I'm at a loss on what to try next....
 

A:Can't connect to home wireless network

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

If WEP doesn't work try WPA(2)-PSK. Vista and newer versions of Windows sometimes struggle with WEP, especially with older routers. A firmware update, if one is available, may help.

I bought a computer yesterday and am currently unable to connect to my wireless network. The network is a shared wireless network, WEP network key and i'm using a Netcomm Np 7040 usb lan adapter. When I open wireless connections the wireless network is visible and when I try to connect it gives me the error message "windows is unable to connect to the selected wireless network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." I have already googled the problem and one bit of advise was to add the network in the advanced settings and include the network key in that. I did that and it is still coming up with the message. The usb adapter works on all the other computers when connecting to the network so I doubt its that. Any ideas?

Hi and welcome

Im assuming you are using Homegroup for networking.

Lets take a look at device manager by typing device manager in search. go to the wif tab and look to see if your card listed listed. Is it? does it have a yellow triangle on it?

Are there any "unknown" devices with yellow on them?

Let us know

Hi, i recently bought a usb wireless wifi connector & successfully installed the drivers. The problem is that whenever I click on a network to connect an error pops up saying 'Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range.Please refresh the list of available networks, and try again.'
Plz help me to solve this problem.
Currently i am running Windows xp sp 2 on my desktop.

Why not SP3? Some networking devices will not work properly w/o SP3.

What firewall or security suite is, or ever was, on the system?

Hey everyone,

I've suddenly been unable to connect to my wireless network and this is the sequence of events leading to the problem. (Currently using a friend's computer). My chrome browser got hijacked by the search conduit virus. So, I cleaned it with AdW cleaner. My internet connection was ok then. After that, I ran ccleaner and cleared the registry.
Now, I find that I have trouble even connecting to my wireless - it says limited connectivity or no connectivity. The other comp's in my house can connect to the internet fine. I've checked and resetted my network adapter. It is working, but still can't connect. I restored all my registry but still it doesn't solve the problem.What have I done wrong?

I hope someone can give me a hand with this problem. It would be very much appreciated.

Regards,
Leon

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!
Stacey

A:unable to connect to wireless network

would you post back an xirrus screen and also indicate which wireless is yours
Make and model of your router
------------------------------------------------------------------------
{run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
Then run the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Can anyone help with the following problem please?

I am unable to connect to a wireless network.

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 with an Atheros AR5007EG wireless adapter. This shows as "working correctly" in Device Manager. I have tried to re-install drivers for it endlessly. They all seem to install ok but I still have the problem.

The symtoms are....

1) If I try to setup a wireless connection I get "An unexpected error occured". There are no useful looking messages in Event Viewer.

2) If I use "Diagnose and repair" I get "The network adapter is experiencing driver or hardware related issues".

I have uninstalled just about anything that I think might be causing conflicts. I have scanned for malware. I have run chkdsk and sfc. I have all the latest updates from Windows Update. I have tried in Safe Mode with Networking but still get the same results.

OS is Vista Home Basic 32-bit SP2.

I'd be grateful for any advice that might help to resolve this please.

Good day!So, this laptop always connected to a LAN cable, and we've rarely brought it away. We're rarely connected to the internet via wireless router, since I don't bring it much. 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

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!

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.

How I got to where I am now:

As I go through the day, all of a sudden I start getting "Unable to Connect to Wireless Network". I click on the popup and then click on repair.

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. There are days where it never happens at all and then there are days where it happens every 10 minutes or so. It also seems to happen more at night for some reason. How can I eliminate this problem?

I have never had problems connecting before…THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING!

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.

Hi guys thanks for taking the time to check this out.

Basically I have a mates laptop that I have tried to get connected up to our wireless network. In the network there 4 laptops and one desktop, and apart from the laptop in question, connect fine to the router (netgear).

The laptop is an Advent 7099 (G335 Advent) with an Intel Pro 3945ABG wireless LAN network card,XP Media Center Operating system. When trying to connect up, it complains that it has Little or No Connectivity, and the connection status claims "This Problem Occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer"

According to Network Connection Details the IP Address has been set to 169.254.222.133, Subnet Mask 255.255.0.0,!

I have also checked whether the DHCP service is running and it is fine.
Also it had the same situation in Service Pack 2, and is now on Service pack 3!

If anyone could share some light on this would be very grateful! Thanks

A:Solved: Cannot connect to home wireless network

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.
Make/model of the broadband modem.
Make/model of the router (if any).
Connection type, wired, wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.)
Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP2, Vista, etc.

I suggest disabling encryption on your router to see if you can connect, then enable encryption as a separate step. Also, use only the HEX key option for WEP, don't use the passcode option. If possible, use WPA encryption.
