Wireless Internet not working

Q: Wireless Internet not working

I purchased a new PC (Lenevo ideacentre e700 AOI) about two weeks ago. On an inital set up everything was running, fine did all the updates and was able to access the internet. I did not use the PC for around a week, and when attempting to try it the internet would not connect. I noticed that it was not showing any wifi options at all. I went to device manager and an exclamation mark was showing on our wifi network adapter which is a Intel dual band (cant remember the rest and now my device manager wont load at all to find). I took it back to the shop they looked at it and said it's probably just the drivers, however these are up to date. They ran the lenovo support and nothing come back wrong and the wifi connected to the stores wifi. The technician told use to just disable and enable with any troubles as would give a kick start. When we got home the wifi still wouldn't connect, tried to disable/enable however it wasn't even showing on the device manager, after a couple of times it finally appeared so we did the disable/enable however it sitll would not work. Now my pc won't load device manager at all.

Any recommendations, otherwise we will take the PC back to the shop.

Preferred Solution: Wireless Internet not working

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.)

A: Wireless Internet not working

Welcome to the forum. Given the fact that its brand new I would take it back to the shop the problem would seem to be the update win10 drivers for that card dont work very well you could install intel drivers or do a system restore but being new you want a pc that works

Hi, I have just got an EZCast home multimedia wireless sharing device. It works great from my acer laptop and from my android phone. HTC one! My problem is that it works as an access point so both my phone and my laptop need to connect as clients. when I do this I have no connection to the internet anymore.
I have a great deal with my telecoms provider in Ireland and get umlimited BB over G4 so I use the HTC either in wifi hotspot mode or Bluetooth PAN to connect to the internet on my laptop (and wireless printer).
Either way when I connect to the EZCast access point I have no internet. The phone sees a wireless network and shuts down my mobile data connection and my laptop can only connect to one wireless point at a time. When I do bluetooth tethering and I am connected to the EZCast AP, I can still see that I am connected to the BT PAN but I have no adapter to connect it to so no internet. I tried to bridge the PAN and the WIFI but forums are telling me that you can't do this with Windows 7 anymore. I have noticed that there is a virtual miniport in Windows and I was wondering would it be possible to use this. I know I could buy a USB Wifi dongle and that would be it but it must be possible some other other way. The networks don't havce to talk to eachother. I need to get internet on the laptop and then at the same time be able to connect to my TV via the EZast Wifi. Hope someone can help. It's my first post her so hope I have given enough info.

Hello and welcome Eamonn now I am a tad confused with your rather involved post mate. Now could you simplify it a little to what works with what and what you are actually wanting it to do.

Now I have to ask I assume you have updated all drivers for all the devices??

There is a really good networking member here if I cannot help you out but I will try first.

I have a linksys model wrt54gl v1.1 and I am using Windows Vista 32bit Home Edition. I have a pc connected to the router directly through an ethernet plus a laptop, 2 iphones and a blackberry that get wireless internet from it. 2 days ago wireless stopped working. The internet on the pc connected to the router by ethernet is still working and the power, WLAN, ethernet, and internet lights are all lit green. The internet and ethernet lights flash when data is being transferred but the the WLAN light is not flashing. I have restored the router to factory default but it is still not working.

So yesterday the whole apartment I live in got a total internetblock. Nobody could do anything on the internet for the whole day, it said something bout my network cards (I am swedish so I don't know what everything is called in english) didn't work. So I use an internet cable, but it seems like that one doesn't work either, as I keep getting disconnected from the Internet randomly, it's incredibly annoying.

Hi people,

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium.
My wireless connection has been working on and off for a while, but now it just refuses
to work.
The other computers in the wireless network are working just fine, so it must be definitely something in my laptop.

I can detect the network just fine, with good signal.
It says:

Media State: Enabled
IPv4 Connectivity: No internet access
IPv6 Connectivity: No internet access

Also, in the activity there are Bytes sent and received, but I cannot connect to any webpage either with Chrome of Firefox

I'm using McAfee Security Center. I tried turning off the firewall, but it still doesn't work.

Please let me know what I can try.

A:internet not working on lan but working with wireless card?

I would suggest connecting with your wireless card and going to windows update and seeing if you have all the updates for your operating system. Look in the Optional updates for hardware drivers that may fix the yellow exclamation marks, as they may be the problem. If the yellow marks don't go away, google that problem "how to get rid of yellow exclamation marks in Device manager".
You may want to disconnect your wireless card, plug in your ethernet cable, and then power cycle your modem, router, and computer. Turn them all off, then power each of them up, waiting a minute between each one. Start with your modem, then your router, then your computer. Post your results.

Hi there ،،

well the problem here that suddenly all my internet explolers ( firefox , IE9(x32) , google Chrome ) can't access to the internet . I checked the connection many times, i tried the system restore, scan for viruses and i couldn't find any help with this.

I decided to come home for a weekend, and I could not connect to the wireless internet, even though every other laptop in the house was connecting fine.

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300D laptop. The internet works fine when it's connected with a LAN cable. With the wireless however, the laptop connects successfully but there is no internet connection. I have had this problem previously, but it was solved when I updated the Atheros driver. However, I have just moved to a new place and the same thing has happened again! This time though, the updates (from Toshiba and Atheros) haven't managed to fix the problem. Thank you in advance!

Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007

Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

Hi guys, here is my question.

So my sister is running an Acer Aspire 3680 laptop. Yesterday the wireless internet on her laptop was working. She ran the default window's disk cleanup and then after she rebooted her computer and let the clean up run her wireless internet stopped working. It connects to our home network but it doesn't get past the Identifying stage.

I am running a Netgear model WGR614 v7 network. Its 802.11g.

On my network I assign static LAN IP's based on MAC addresses and I employ MAC address filtering.

I checked her mac address in case the disk clean up had changed it, but the one on her computer matched the MAC i have for her in the router. I have tried cycling the power on the router and no help.

I have removed our home network from her wireless network places and then re-added it, retyping the correct password.

The RJ45 or LAN connection works fine. I am just lost on why the wireless is not working. We have other laptops in the house and they can get on the wireless internet just fine.

I am running out of ideas here, any help would be great, thanks.

My friend has asked me for help, i've already had her call her router company and they just hung up on her. as did her ISP.

She runs on a Windows XP system with wireless internet.

Her problem:

1 Desktop PC
2 Laptops

One of the laptops is unable to access the internet via browser. She can ping her router and gets replies in the 200ms. The internet says it's connected, but she can't connect to it.

She has made sure the internet switch is on, has restarted all the computers in the house (including her laptop which isn't picking up the signal), and she has restarted the internet.

Is there anything else she can do? Any advice? I'm sorry if this isn't enough information. I can try and get more if it's needed

Here's the deal. We have two computers both connected to a WTG624 Netgear router. One is connected by a wireless USB adapter WG111v2, also Netgear.
A few days ago, one of them suddenly started acting up. The wireless signal (as shown on the netgear network wizard) would connect and then disconnect in a matter of seconds, but even when it said it was connected, the internet wouldn't work at all. I had to reinstall the driver, but that didn't work either. Now I had a constant signal with 80%+ strength but alas, the internet was not working. The networking icon in the system tray said I had 'little or no connection' and when i tried to repair it couldn't get one, ending up with
I tried putting in ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew into the command prompt box, but it said that it couldn't do anything while 'the media is disconnected'. I tried powercycling. I tried using the Windows wireless connection configuring thing, as the Netgear customer support people told me to, but that didn't work. I tried putting in netsh int ip reset rest.log and then netsh winsock reset catalog too, and then rebooting it, but I still couldn't get internet. I checked all the connections, and it's beginning to drive me mad.
Does anyone know what's wrong? And can anyone help me? Thanks.

A:Internet/Wireless not working

Hi Ashlea, and welcome to TSG.

I suspect that the networking hardware drivers are missing and need to be installed. Check the Windows Hardware Device manager for any red or yellow warning symbols for any of the hardware.

Depending on the age of the computer, you may find out that XP compatible drivers may not be readily available for it.

Are you having problems accessing the contents of the memory sticks or just a problem opening the actual files? Are the programs needed to open the memory stick files installed on the computer?

I was stupidly playing around with the properties of my wireless internet connection (changing from open to shared etc etc). Now I have a problem where the internet does not automatically connect to my wireless network, and when I manually connect it, it seems to work for about 20 mins, then disconnect.

Also, rather oddly, when 'connected' it still says that its disconnected.

Does this make sense?

I can't figure out what the problem is, but I can't get my laptop to connect to my wireless network. Under Network connections, it says the Wireless Network Connection is Enabled. The device is also working properly in the Device status section. And down in the taskbar, the Wireless Network connection has an excellent signal strength, so it appears to be connecting just fine to the router. Other wireless machines in the house work, so I know the network is OK. And finally, if I plug the laptop directly into the router, I can get to the Internet.

It was working previously, but something must've changed. Any suggestions??

I use wireless internet every day. A couple of days ago my wireless internet was working normally, but then my computer said "limited or no connectivity". It wasn't just my computer because my roommate also on our wireless network got the same message. So we unplug and replug the modem and router ...

(we only know to do this because when we first moved into our apartment- in September - we were having problems with our internet and it turned out to be a bad modem, which was then replaced by a brand new one and we haven't had a problem since, and our internet connection has since been very stable).

After replugging the modem and router to the outlet, everyone's wireless internet worked except mine. My computer finds my wireless network, and It attempts to connect, "Acquiring network address" "please wait while windows connects..." and after a good minute, it stops the attempt.

I am able to connect to the internet through ethernet cord connected to the router, but my wireless doesn't work. Today I restored my computer to "factory settings" to see if the problem would be solved, but it's still does the same thing.

Could my wireless card need to be replaced? Or could it be some other problem. Any help is appreciated. I can provide more info if asked.

I have tried moving my router so it's more out in the open (it was sitting on a shelf in the desk, kind of like a cubby hole, its now sitting on the very top).

I have tried changing the channel

In the settings I have tried changing it from "idle out" to "keep alive".

None of these have appeared to fix the problem, as it has now disconnected 3 times in the span of an hour. Not equal time difference either, just randomly. Can someone give me more things to try? (and please keep it simple, I'm new to this wireless stuff)

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 that's about 4 years old. I've always used a wired connection, with no router.

I just recently brought my laptop to a hotel that had wifi and I tried to get it to work. Since I had previously disconnected wireless on my laptop I had to try and reenable it but to no avail. When searching for networks it said I needed to turn on my wireless button or something like that. I kind-of knew what it meant because I used to have 3 icons in the system tray; one for wireless networks, one that showed signal strength I think, and one for the wired network. Well I only had 2, I was missing the signal strength one. Anyway, I gave up because I didn't really need the internet anyway.

I just returned home yesterday and now I can't get my wired connection to work. I plugged in my ethernet cable and where normally it would just work I got nothing. Now I look in my system tray and I have the 2 icons for the wireless and nothing for the wired connection. I tried restarting my cable modem, and I got nothing. But when I unplugged the power from my cable modem the icon popped up for a second to let me know that "my network connection has been disconnected".

I have no idea what to do. I've tried the "new connection wizard", it goes through and says I should be fine. In the Network Connections folder I have 3 icons, one for 1394 Net Adapter, one for Lan Connection, and one for Wireless Connection. I've disabled the Wirel... Read more

I have a 3 year old MPC Transport T1200. It has a wireless switch that has always worked. I was using wireless two days ago, and tonight, when I turned it on, it just stopped working.

I've tried looking at my device manager, and everything is fine. I've tried pinging, and that fails, even though my ethernet it working just fine. The wireless is enabled, I have the right drivers. I'm at a complete loss here. When I turn the switch on, the computer just doesn't recognize the wireless card or something.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

A:Wireless internet suddenly not working

If it is a mini-PCI adapter it may have come loose. You can unplug the AC, remove the battery, remove the cover over the wireless and check.

Else the adapter or switch may have failed.

Ok heres the deal. My computer is quite old and recently is having a problem where every know and then it would get the blue screen of death and give up. So I found out is because it needed to get a cleaning. So when I was trying to open it I accidentaly, while trying to remove the top, broke a wire (turned out it opened from the side). It's an HP Pavilion m9715f.

Ever since then internet has stopped working. It's not a virus as I have done a full system restore. And when I try to reset the ipv4, it tells me "echo request failed". I have tried so many things but to no avail. Help would be very aprreciated

Im pretty sure it's the cable at the top but I don't know what it does exactly.

Thanks in advanced to all feedback

Hi, I'm looking for help, I've tried everything I know to do.
We have two laptop computers and our Tivo hooked up to use the wireless internet through our cable company with a Belkin router. Over Christmas we got a camera that emails directly from it, and it told us to press the WSP button on the Belkin router. The camera magically worked, however our computers did not work anymore! After an hour long phone call to Belkin, I got one of my computers to work normally again. However the 2nd laptop won't connect to the internet and our tivo isn't picking it up either, which mean our shows are not recording.

Please help, any advice? Also, I'm using two apple computers. When I attempt to hook up the airport network, it says "unable to join the network."

Thanks in advance for the help! We've got to get back wireless soon!

A:Wireless internet not working correctly

i would suggest you log into the router and disable the wireless security WPS
and then set up manually

and then set the security to None / disable and then make sure everything connects to the open wireless network - you may need to remove any stored wireless profiles - i dont know the mac well enough to advise

Then once all working you can go back into the router and add wireless security - then reconnect the device and enter the security code to connect

Hi everyone,
I'm currently on my laptop and needed some help with my desktops internet. I recently installed windows 7 professional 64 bit and had been using an Ethernet cable to connect to the internet in my dorm. Now I'm at home for winter break and my wireless card isn't working. Windows 7 says that no wireless devices are enabled. Is there a way I can turn back on my device? I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device on my mother board but that didnt help because that was for the ethernet and not for the wireless card. thanks.

I am using Windows Vista home premium edition. My computer is an LGR50.

My wireless internet has suddenly stopped working. It used to be able to connect to any wireless network with no problems, but for the last month it has not been able to detect any networks. When ever I say "identify the problem" it says there is nothing wrong with my computer and it must be the router. I ran a virus scan and everything was fine, ran a defrag, everything was fine. I know the wireless "button" is on. I used my device manager to look at my network adapters and there are "warning signs" saying that my mass storage controller is "defective" and also pretty much all of my network adapters (except my bluetooth). I downloaded the newest WiFi link 4965AGN and it's still not working. I can't seem to figure out what is wrong with it!

Any help appreciated

A:Connected to wireless but internet not working

I have a Lenovo laptop 3000 N100 running Windows Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 1, Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo CPU, T2350 @ 1.86GHz 1.87GHz, 2GB RAM.

The laptop has never before had issues connecting to the wireless home networking system. The 2 desktops in the home are working fine and connecting to the internet.

On Sunday, 10/4, I shut down my computer. Because I got a new job, I didn't start it up again until Friday, 10/9. No one touched the computer during that time because I locked it away. But when I turned it on, I was surprised to discover my internet connection not working. I right clicked the wireless networking icon and tried "Diagnose & Repair". Windows cannot find a problem.

I contacted my internet provider and after an hour on the phone they figured it was my computer but suggested booting up in Safe Mode w/ Networking and plugging in the Ethernet.....sure enough, that worked, but only proved that it's not my internet provider. They suggested restoring to previous date (10/1), which I did, and that changed nothing.

I am not aware of any bad updates but am wondering if that is the problem since this is so out of the blue. Also, when I try accessing other programs within my computer, like Device Manager, it freezes up and never opens.

I appreciate any and all help you can provide. Thank you!

My wifi connection quit working. For a week or two it worked when it wanted to and now it doesn't work at all. At home my mom can sit right next to me and hers will work fine but it wants me to connect an ethernet cord to get a signal. I also go to tech school with a pretty large system and it doesn't work here either! I'm getting really frustrated and don't know what to do any more!

A:Wireless Internet quit working!

Failed wifi connection

It could be either a hardware fault, so if you are using a laptop with built in wireless card, that could be broken in some way.
Or it could be a software problem with the drivers for your wireless device are faulty in some way.
The easiest (and free) thing you can try, is to uninstall your wireless software then reboot the pc and it will make Windows reinstall it again.
You need to go into 'Control Panel' 'Hardware' and then ' Device Manager',
then look down the list for the line '802.11'
Right click on it an choose 'uninstall drivers'.
Then restart your pc, and you will see a notice 'Found new hardware' etc.
You might find you now can get a connection to your wireless router.
If that doesn't fix it, you can try and use a wireless adapter in a USB port.
There are many makes that work, I have had good results with;
