Q: Solved: Wireless Network doesn't function

Hi

I've searched for this and found a couple of similar threads around Wireless Networking but they don't quite match the problems I'm having.

I have a Sony VAIO laptop running Windows XP. I've had the machine for about 18 months now and have had no problems connecting to my wireless router. I have always been able to detect 4 or 5 local networks as well as my own.

About 3 months ago I was prompted to upgrade from Internet Explorer 6 to IE7 and (foolishly) did so. This caused huge problems and eventually I had to reverse the procedure using Norton Go Back - this was largely successful although I still seem to get a couple of error messages on start up that weren't there previously. One thing that the unscrambling exercise did not fix, however, was the wireless connection which has never worked since.

The problem manifestation is simple: when I double click the wireless icon on the task bar it tells me that "No wireless networks were found in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on". Despite making various attempts at overcoming this, including re-installing the router software, I have made no progress.

Picking-up from the previous threads, I have checked the contents of my Start Up folder - nothing at all in there. Also, I have looked at Wireless Zero Configuration and this shows as 'Started' and start up type 'Automatic'.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

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.)

Out of 4 PCs I have one that ain't seen by the others.
The PC's are 98, 98SE and two XPs.
Unfortunately all are OEM so I don't have one Ver of Windows to make them all the same level.
I've thot of doing two things:
1. Disable networking in the problem one (If I knew how) and then enable it again.
2. Set up all the other PCs with an account on the problem PC.

Can anyone tell me which is the best road to go down, or an alternate way to go about things.

I just set up a wireless home network -- laptop (XP), desktop (98se), printer (wired to desktop with wireless to the laptop), router (Belkin make), and cable connection.

Everything worked fine until I tweaked some of the security settings. Both pcs can still access the internet through the router, but the network is gone -- the pcs can't see each other, the printer can't find a network, and the DHCP client list only sees the laptop wireless address. (It used to have addresses for the laptop ethernet connection, the desktop, and printer.) I've tried returning the security settings to the original configuration, but no luck. I don't have any idea what I did wrong.

Any suggestions on what I try next, or do I have to reset the router and start all over again?

Two days ago one of my laptops stopped accessing the internet even though it connects to the wireless router (BT Homehub3). Other laptops, Iphones, Xboxes etc still work fine on the same network.

Running Diagnose Connection Problems produces the following error message Wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration

Running the BT Homehub set up utility it connects to the hub but it fails to set up wireless connection saying that the wireless key is incorrect or there is another problem. It then suggests a wired connection which fails to connect (tried different ethernet cables and ports)

After googling for solutions I have tried the following suggestions without success

ipconfig /all

and the successfully pinging the resulting IP address, default gateway & DNS server

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

After the renew prompt the following message appeared: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.

In services.msc I disabled and restarted DHCP Client

I have also tried

netsh int ip reset reset.log

netsh winsock reset catalog

as suggested elsewhere on this forum, again without success.

I thought I had cracked it when I found a Microsoft Fix-it-for-me tool (MSfixit50199) but it made no difference.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Hi guys, I've got a bit of a problem here. See, sometimes the router has too many devices connected to it and the other people living with me don't understand this so they keep their iPhones, iPads, laptops, et cetera connected via WiFi even though I tell them to turn off the WiFi setting when they're not using it. So it kicks me off constantly, not sure why, but I don't mind too much.
Basically when I'm "connected" but not really connected I remotely reset the router so I don't have to walk upstairs all the time.

Anyway, I've reset it without troubles before. But did it tonight and now it's completely screwed up. I run a windows diagnostics test and it comes up with:
"Wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration."

Now I've been searching the internet from my iPhone to find solutions all night and came across this thread:

I've tried ipconfig/release and the fix that has netsh ip textlog in it and i've also disabled the IP helper. None of these have worked. I looked for webroot in services.msc but couldnt find it so i don't think that's the problem either.

Hi Guys -

I've done everything I could think of but I can't get this wireless PCI card to work. It's a Linksys WMP54G Ver. 1.0 and I have it in an older XP machine. The computer has the correct drivers for the adapter and it sees that it's there and doesn't have any problems, but it won't see my home network no matter what I do. It's next to another computer that has a Linksys USB wireless adapter that picks up the wireless signal just fine (Good signal quality according to Vista)

I tried to re-install with no luck (it said it was already installed and I couldn't reinstall) and I also tried to roll back drivers, but that didn't do anything either. I tried to use the zero configuration utility with Windows and tell it to connect to my home network, but it still wouldn't do it.

I'm running out of ideas... is there something I haven't been thinking of?

Thanks in advance!

I have a Dell Inspiron 530S with a built in Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN mini-card. I have a Linksys router (WRT320N). This computer runs VISTA Home Premium (32 bit).

This computer connects to the internet fine as long as it is hardwired to the router. However, it doesn't "see" any networks when I try to get it to connect to the router "wirelessly".

I have 2 other computers running XP that connect to the router fine so I know the router works fine.

The card works fine (I have been on chat with Dell technicians for hours and a technician came to the house this week and verified the card is fine).

It must be a software problem on my VISTA computer but I have no idea what to try next (short of reinstalling the operating system).

Any ideas would be appreciated.

About a week ago I started having difficulty connecting to our wireless network.

One day it didn't work, I tried restarting modem, router restarting computer, which usually works but not this time. I would open up availabe networks and "linksys unsecured" was the only thing that showed up. I didn't see our network or our neighbors which usually shows up.

Hi, here is an e-mail I sent to Belkin tech support ... but I haven't heard back so I thought I'd try here. Can anyone help me?

Hi, I'm trying to set up a Belkin F5D6020 ver2 wireless adapter on my IBM 233mhz laptop running WIN98se. I want to connect to my existing wired network. I have a cable modem connected to my Belkin F5D6231-4 router. I have 2 PCs connected to the router via ethernet cable. The wired part of the network is working beautifully. All wired PCs can talk to each other. When I have my wired network adapter installed on the laptop, it works great too.

I installed the installation software on the laptop using the EASY option. I plug in the adapter card when prompted and Windows installs the drivers. My computer doesn’t ask me to restart so I restart manually. The monitor utility comes up and, after a minute, a warning message displays ‘The access point you are attempting to access does not appear to exist. Please select the new one’. The prompts on the utility screen read:

Profile name: Default
Operating mode: infrastructure
Channel = 3 (greyed out)
SSID = ANY
Tx Rate = Auto
MAC address = 00-30-BD-D2-BF-06

There is no signal strength or link quality. I click on the site survey tab and there is nothing listed. I click rescan and still nothing. The green link LED on the card is flashing. The WLAN light on the router is solid green.

A:Wireless Network Connection Doesn't Have Valid IP Configuration

From what I can see in the ipconfig you are showing incorrect DNS server IP's for the wireless connection.

It also doesn't show the manufacture of the wireless adaptor so something isn't right with the adaptor that is showing up under Microsoft Virtual WiFi miniport which should only be used for sharing a wireless connection. In fact it almost looks like you are trying to share a connection here or something. Nothing with this connection is right.

Google Search led me here, need Tech Support. I have no idea what any of these forum category are or mean. Here is my situation. My Desktop and Laptop both connect to the Free Wifi in my apartment complex. On 8/26/2020 it was down for about a month. Now
recently, my Laptop is able to connect but my desktop will not. Diagnose tells me Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a Valid IP Address. I have tried the easier solutions I could find online, that involve opening CMD and ipconfig /release, /dnsflush,
/renew, as well as the Ntsch commands, followed by restarting computer. I do not run AV, nothing on my system has changed since then. Signal Strength is listed as Excellent, though the laptop has a harder time connecting, the desktop will no longer connect.
Please help.

I recently bought an Asus laptop, wonderful computer, and we got verizon FiOS, so my internet should be lightning fast, but my laptop decides that it doesn't want to connect to the internet. It'll connect to the wireless network, and sometimes it will even say that it is connected to the internet, but Windows Live Messenger won't connect and I can't browse the internet. Other times it might show that i'm not connected to the internet and I can still browse. Very odd.

My parents are using another laptop on the same network without any issues. The network is set to private and is security enabled.

It seems to not work mostly when I first boot the computer after a time of inactivity, I'll sometimes have to restart the computer to get the internet working, but after it's working it keeps working, until I go away for a while and the computer activates the screensaver or goes into hibernation or something.

So I'm having a major problem with my laptop. Been fine connecting to the internet since day 1 and now after having my laptop for about 6 months, It decides to connect, but have "Limited Access", therefore, not allowing me ANY Access. I diagnosed the problem and it told me to shut router off, all that stuff. I shut the router off, waited 10 seconds, turned it on, all that jazz and says that I "Completed" that, but now reads, "Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration".

Now I clicked on "Detection Details", and not sure if this matters, but seen these "reason's" a few times, "0x00028001" "0x00000007" and "0x00000101".

my Wireless connection driver info for the laptop is, Broadcom 43224AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi Adapter, version 5.60.48.31.

First, connecting to someone else's wifi is both illegal and makes you vulnerable to malware.

If it is secured and yours you should know the logon, if you dont it not yours to use.

Please run the following and upload snapshots of the output

start>cmd>right click and run as admin>ipconfig /all

Also every time my laptop restarts it always loads saying "Preparing for first time use" Like I used the CD recovery again. which I didn't.

Hey, i'm not really good at explaining things, but I'll try my best.
The problem is that I have an old computer Acer Aspire 5315 which has this problem with WiFi, it can't find Wireless Network Connection.
I tried installing drivers but that doesn't help, I don't kow if wireless switch is responding, because nothing happens when I click it. But I does work well when I insert ethernet cable, and everything works just fine on another laptop. Is it a problem with computer it self? Is it possible to fix it?
I'm uploading a picture which shows that the laptos is able to find LAN connection, but it can't event detect Wireless Network Connection (so I can't manually enable it, how many videos, forums suggest)

A:Laptop doesn't find Wireless Network Connection

Check in Device Manager to see if it is listed there.

There may be a button or Fn key combination to turn on/off the wireless, see if that's the case.
If above fail, try loading defaults in BIOS (either first screen or exit menu).

Hello there dear friends.

I just registered to your forum searching for help to a very persistent and annoying problem i have been facing.

While my internet works fine, many times a day (every day) the connection will fail and a yellow exclamation pyramid will appear at my connection status. When i perform a troubleshoot at my connection the problem is recognized as Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration and the problem is immediately repaired.

Now as you understand this is a very annoying problem because i am unable to perform many internet functions demanding time as downloading a file or playing an online game because i will drop every once and a while. I noticed that many people have been facing this problem but they couldent connect at all in the internet, as you understand my problem differs because i can connect to the internet but i get dropped every once and a while.

I am using a wireless router: airties rt-205
my laptops network card is a realtek rtl8191se
and i am using windows 7 home premium 32bit.

Before you ask i have already updated my networks card and routers drivers to the latest ones.

I beg you masterminds of windows 7 forums please help me solve this very annoying problem thats killing all the fun of my internet.

(ps if you need the details of the troubleshoot report just let me know)

Hi BlitzGreek, welcome to the forums

My next door neighbour had the same issues but it turned out to be a fault with the router. You could try 1 thing...Turn the router off, press and hold the reset button (found on the back of the router) for 5-10 seconds then power on again.



   Note
This will completely reset the router to factory settings without reverting to previous firmware. It can take up to 2 minutes for the connection to be fully restored.



   Information
ISP's tend to send router updates up the line but this can cause connectivity issues

Hope it helps

One afternoon my laptop decided to have "an initentified network" after having no problems previously with our dsl router. I am working from my functional desktop computer, so I will not be able to download any new drivers, etc. on the dysfunctional laptop since obviously I have no internet connection on it. After going through your forums and trying a couple of things to no avail, I did do the ipconfig/all, copied it on a usb and moved it over here. Here it is, I hope you can help. Thanks! Buffy624 Note: Also it looks like something weird is there for my DNS servers??? If that's the case, how would I change that in the little black box area of cmd.exe without messing anything seriously up. PS - also in going through the forums, I removed Bonjour since it was recommended in some of the answers - will that be a problem?

A:wireless network connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration

The ipconfig looks mostly ok to me although it appears that you have a DNS of 4.2.2.2 typed into the IPv4 settings window, it might be best to remove that entry from IPv4 and then type the DNS servers you want to use into your routers set up page instead, where ever it says DNS servers type in the two you want to use for example Google's DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 .

In the Network and Sharing Center> Manage Wireless Connections, the profile for this connection should be using WPA2 with AES encryption, the same settings should be showing up in your routers set up page. After that please post the ipconfig/all again. If you can check that out first it would be most helpful.

Hello, i have an ASUS X55VD and the wireless adapter isn't working anymore. I tried troubleshooting, reinstalling the ASUS drivers (Ralink and Atheros drivers), uninstalling and uninstalling & deleting the driver from device manager. I tried uninstalling the antivirus (ESET SS 8). The wired connection is working fine.

How it started giving errors: I left it in Sleep mode for 2 days, unplugged. After this i did a restart and the wireless adapter was off. I turned it on using the Wireless Console 3 (provided by the laptop CD from ASUS), the wireless LED stays constant ON, although in Network and Sharing center, the wireless connection is Disabled. Re-enabling it from there it just says Enabling... -> Enabled but it still remains Disabled. After this i started applying the fixes mentioned above. Whenever i start the laptop now the Wireless is disabled and i don't know what else to try.
