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: Can’t connect my N300 wireless USB Adapter to the internet

Your router is not connected to the internet. Contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and ask them when they will have you back online.

So I had just finished building and setting up my new rig yesterday and today I got a Netgear adapter. I installed everything and it went fine until it started going in and out giving me the "Default Gateway" error. I searched for what is now 4 hours and tried every solution possible, but I cannot seem to fix it. I will provide any information I can, just tell me what you need.

A:Netgear N300 Wireless Adapter Default Gateway is not Available

Welcome to Seven Forums,

When you installed the driver for your Netgear wireless adapter, did you download the latest driver from the Netgear's site?

Please provide an ipconfig /all for review.
Click on Start button then type cmd , see on the top right click on it and choose Run as Administrator. From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results on your next post.

So I have the Belkin N300 Wireless adapter connected to my Asus m52bc computer running windows Pro 7 64-bit. Here's a photo of what the adapter looks like:
I DO have the latest driver for the adapter. So please don't nag about the "driver" update. However, there is a problem with the USB port driver. For some strange reason, when I go to "Device Manager" I get a problem with a USB driver not being installed. It looks like this:


When I run the troubleshooter, I get this error:


I also AM connected to a network. I also get the yellow explanation mark on the wifi symbol.

Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you. Like I said, It's not the Wireless Adapter's Driver problem because I already have it fully updated and working (The adapter works on other computers but not my Asus m52bc). I think it's the USB driver problem. If you point me to a direction on where I can install the USB driver would be greatly appreciated thanks. Oh and let me know if the URLs to the photos aren't working.

Hello, this problem has really confuzzled me. I have just bought a new wireless USB adapter, ran it through the setup entered the password etc. Fine. Nicely connects to the router everytime (well ok most the time). But it cant seem to find the internet, which i know is there because my house mate has no problems with it. I've read quite a few complaints about this adapter. Is it worth just returning it and trying a different one? Or does anyone have any ideas?

It finds the submask, ip address, sets a channel automatically. One thing i noticed though is it doesnt create a gateway. (i asume cos i cant find the net). I did have internet before but they were wired. I've since then disabled the normal ethernet adapter and disabled the old connections. So i dont think theres anything conflicting.

Please help?!!
Thank you in advance i really appreciate it.

A:Belkin Wireless adapter - can connect to the adapter, but not the internet!!!

I'm going to guess that the IP address that it finds is 169.254.x.x and the subnet mask is, right? It's really NOT connecting to the router, which is why you don't have a Default Gateway or DNS servers.

You don't have to disable the wired interface to connect wirelessly, there's no conflict.

I'd suggest you first disable the encryption and see if it connects. If it does, then you need to make sure you enter matching passwords for the encryption on each end. Note that for WEP you should ONLY use the HEX password, do not use the passcode option.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

The name of your ISP and country of residence.
Make/model of the broadband modem. If dial-up, please specify.
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.

Hi there, first time actually posting on this forum. As the title says, I have a Belkkin N300 Micro USB dongle that up until about a week ago, has worked like a charm. Then out of nowhere it starts acting up. Now every 30minutes-2hours(if I'm lucky) it loses connection and I can no longer access the internet. It will say that it is still connected, but I can't do anything. If i try to repair the connection, it gets an error on the last step Registering DNS and can't fix itself. If I attempt to go in and re connect to the wireless network it says that Windows is not managing the wireless networks and to turn Wireless Zero Configuration on(which I have done).

However, when I start it up there's no problem whatsoever until this happens again. On a somewhat related note, when this all started something went wrong to where I couldn't connect to google.com directly. Rather I had to search google on Yahoo or some other site and then click google's link. Not sure if that's relevant. Anyways my room is too far from the router to run an ethernet cord to it. I have already tried reinstalling the drivers for the USB dongle and no change. I have seen from some other posts that the typical first response is to ask for the ipconfig/all so I will post that below. I uninstalled my virus protection, have tried all the turn it off and on simple stuff and don't know what else to try. Oh and my ISP is AT&T through their UVERSE package deal, the router...

Hi guys

Have often browsed this fount of knowledge without actually posting but now I am stumped and really need help...

I have recently moved house and had new broadband installed complete with new Netgear N300 router. Now I am unable to connect to the internet even though my desktop says it can see the wireless network (though it does say it is unidentified). The network connection diagram in Vista suggests the problem is between the internet and the router but I know this is not the case as I have successfully connected other devices via the wireless network. I know the router is N and the card is G but the router should still work with the older card, right?

I have tried to download the latest drivers from Belkin for a version 8 F5D7000 but for some reason they wont install (when I click on the install file it thinks for a second then does nothing). No idea why this is the case.

Could it be anything to do with the fact that the card, being older, is WEP and my router has no option for WEP, only WPA onwards? If so, would the latest driver from Belkin in effect 'upgrade' my card to allow it to carry same encryption as the router?

If I can't solve then I'll no doubt end up buying a new PCI card but I didn't want to have to bother right at this moment.

Any help would be fantastic!

I recently bough a belkin router (Share N300) but it just wont connect to the internet.

My setup is as follows:
ADSL -> Modem -> Router -> PC

The internet works fine when I connect it directly to my PC (via the modem), and other PCs too.
So no issue of MAC address lockdown.

I've tried connecting through static mode with the data from ipconfig /all, but it still doesn't work.

I've even installed DD WRT and Tomato to no avail.

I've rebooted/reset everything, but theres still no connection.

Please help.

A:Belkin Router N300 doesn't connect to internet

If the modem is a modem only did you power cycle it when trying to connect the router and configure the router's WAN properly?

If the modem is really a modem/router combo is it and the Belkin using the same LAN IP subnet?

I have a Netgear 108 Mbps Super Wireless ADSL router (DG834GT) which is directly connected to my 1st desktop. Just bought another PC and trying to connect using the Netgear WG111T Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter. Both computers are running Windows XP Pro SP2. The 2nd PC can detect the wireless network, plus a few others from neighbouring houses. However, cannot seem to connect to my home network at all. Security options have been disabled as I firstly just want to get it working. Incidentally, I can connect to one of my neighbours access points but notwithstanding, cannot bring up any web pages.

Please advise!

Thanks in advance.

Hi, this is a problem that has been bothering me for months.(about 10, as we've been too lazy to do anything about it) We own 2 PCs and one laptop. The main PC has a router connected to it, which sends out signals to the other PC and the laptop. Both the main PC(because it's bigger ) and the laptop get internet access just fine. However, for closing on like 8 or 9 months now the other PC in my room will not connect to the internet, although the adapter says it's connected to the router, it never brings up the message that it's connected to the internet. I've turned off windows firewall and such, but I'm starting to get to the point where I've just messed around with too many settings and would like some more expert help.

Because multiple users use this PC, I do not know the specific cause of the problem, but there was a windows update that I think was installed around the time of the loss of connection.

I also do not believe there is any connection at all, as the netgear activity chart is at about 1% if that helps, although the computer says it is connected to the main router. And yes this is a wireless connection that is having the problem. Windows XP 2000.

I have also restored the Internet Explorer 7 Default settings, and tried a copy of Firefox aswell. Niether of them can display the webpage.

ok here it goes. I have a hp tx2000 laptop using vista with a alfa awuso36h usb adapter to connect to the internet. Ok heres the problem i was using this setup to connect to my neighbores wireless internet with no problems for about 2 weeks(yes they know and are fine with me using it). But within the past week (actually all of a sudden it wont work) my program that came with the adapter shows alot of networks with full signals but when i connect to any of them it shows connected but wont actually bring up the internet. When i click on i.e. It says i.e. Cannot display the webpage. And if it actually does take me to google it will disconnect for no reason and reconnect to a random network thats available. my neighbors connection i was using just all of a sudden quit working and if i try to connect to it , it says cannot connect to frontier87. Also the other networks that show up sometimes will say the settings saved on this computer for this network dont match the requirements of the network, but sometimes the same network will connect but wont actually bring up the internet. I guess i just want to know what has changed to make me not be able to use a network that worked fine for me last week. Please help.

I have recently just moved to a new city, and i am trying desperately to get my desktop computer connected to the internet. This computer is fairly old, and hasn't been used in a while but it worked fine when it was last used. It is a Gateway computer, with Windows XP. I have always used a wireless USB Network adapter (Linksys 2.4GHz - fairly old) and it has always worked fine in the past. I bought a new wireless router, which is also a linksys. My laptop connects fine.

I have tried EVERYTHING, so I'm not sure if I did something that made the situation worse. I have tried renewing my IP address, changing my security key for the router, configuring the IP settings to match my laptops, installing the same program that i used on my laptop onto my desktop (which i think might be the problem but i don't know how to uninstall it.) The program I installed was for the Linksys router, but it wouldn't finish the installation b/c i had already installed it on my laptop.

Anyways, I think i made a mess of things. When i try to connect to the internet using the task bar icon, it says that Windows cannot configure the wireless connection, and if i have enabled another program to manage this wireless connection, to use that software. So, i tried using the half installed Linksys program, and I type in my security key then it takes a while trying to connect. Finally, it will say that it could not connect to the wireless network, but it shows at the bottom that there is e... Read more

Hey guys. About 4-5 months ago me and the family got this fifty dollar router from Belkin, and at first it seemed alright. Right off the bat, the internet was slow, it was crappy, and I couldn't do anything on it. I called belkin support and they told me to just ship it in and they'll give us a replacement. So I got my replacement, and guess what, its the same exact crappy internet I had with the first one. I looked online for different tips at making it faster, such as changing its channel to either 6 or 11. I've tried both channels and my internet speed didn't change in the slightest. My videos don't buffer like they used to, to takes at least 3 minutes for the video itself to even load and show up on the damn page, pages take too long to load, and while I'm trying to view a picture it goes through this sequence of loading slowly from top to bottom as if I have a piece of crap PC from the 1990's or something. And it isn't just on my PC, it goes for my phone to. I connect to my internets WiFi and things are slower than when I had the damn Mobile Data on. My Mobile Data is over 90% now and I'd really like to have the WiFi so I don't have to pay a buttload extra just to watch a few videos when I don't have the PC. Is this the routers fault or am I being dumb? It ticks me off how I paid fifty bucks for this things and its a piece of crap.

I just connected a linksys WRT54G version 8 wireless G router to a desktop computer in my apartment that's directly connected to the internet via cable. I have a desktop pc in the next room with a WUSB11 version 2.6 linksys adapter. I'm trying to connect to the main computer's internet connection. When I first set up the router, everything worked fine. The second computer was connected with the wireless adapter. As soon as I secured the network, that second computer couldn't connect anymore. I've tried both WPA and WEP, and my wireless connection settings on the second computer are configured correctly according to the linksys site and various other places with instructions on the web. I've rebooted my router, reset passwords, tried disabling that wireless zero thing in windows administration tools I've read about online, and looking through every option on that linksys router website ( Any more suggestions?

The wireless internet aspect of my daughter's laptop failed. It is a system board malfunction.

I purchased a USB wireless adapter to overcome the issue and after installation it immediately connected to the access point which is connected to my wired Linksys router.

Cliff Notes:

1. Went to connect wirelessly in another room. No connection.

2. Unplugged the power to router, modem, and access point for 15 seconds in order to reset. Did not resolve the issue.

3. Access point is recognized by the laptop and shows it connected and signal good.

4. Wireless adater in device manager recognized and fully working. It is "Device funtioning properly."

5. Attempted to do a repair several times but here is the repeated message: "Connot connect with DNS server. Network Diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not receive a response."

So, Access is functiong and recognized by the laptop as connected and signal is good. The wireless adapter is recognized as fully functioning. Yet I can't receive a response.

Advice please. Networking isn't anywhere near a strong area for me.

* One other thing. My old Toshiba laptop connects with its a/b miniwireless card.

A:Access Point Recognized/Wireless Adapter Working: Can't Connect to the Internet

I assume your using some encryption mode? (WPA, WEP, etc.)

1. Make sure by the access point and the wireless adapter are set to use the same mode
2. Have you entered the network password correctly?

If any doubt, see if your router lets u backup its setttings. Then turn off all encryption in both the AP and adapter and see if they connect then (easiest way to prove it's an encryption issue )

I?ve been having a strange problem I cannot seem to solve.

My computer all of a sudden last week stopped displaying any webpages/connecting to the internet. It says it is connected (signal strenght/connection= excellent) but it won?t actually connect. Not to IE (7), but not to anything else either. The problem is both for the wireless as well as through the cabel connection.

I?m sure the problem must be the computer and not the internet though, because on my friend?s computer it works fine. I have tried to put all the settings the same as on his (gateway, dns, network mask).

I have already tried to reboot the computer.

I have tried to renew/reset the IP-address numerous times, but am not sure this is working right. I have manually tried to set it (same as the computer that does connect, except for the last two digits).
But when I do it through Run it will let me release the IP-address, however when i try to renew it tells me

?An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection: An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket.?

I have also tried to reset WinSock.

Judging from what you have wrote, you are not able to go to the internet on a laptop/notebook? These machines are usually wireless so to confirm:

You have a wireless network in your home/work?
If so are you able to see it in the wireless network list (typically on the bottom right, in the signal bar icon)
If you are able to see the network, what happens when you select it to connect?

Hi. I have an IBM T40 Thinkpad laptop running Windows XP with CISCO Aironet Client Utility installed to manage my wireless networks. I don't understand the point of this utility as I find the Windows XP wireless connection management more reliable and straightforward, but I don't know how to disable this thing. I would if I could and I have tried, although not that hard.

Anyway, I was using the CISO Aironet Client Utility (or whatever it's called) fine, then I visited a friend's house and needed to get on his network. He started poking around and one day it was working and the next it was broken. It kept saying it couldn't find a radio signal or that it was off. I came home and it wasn't working for a month or so.

One day, I messed around with it and it started working again. Only problem now is whenever I shut down my laptop and re-open it, it never reconnects to my wireless connection automatically. I always have to do it by hand.

Any suggestions here? How can I get it to reconnect automatically and if I can't, how can I get it to use the Windows wireless features that are built in and bypass this CISCO stuff?

Hey guys, need some urgent help here.

I have a program on my computer called Intel(R) My WiFi Technology, which has something to do with my network adapter (Intel (R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN). I recently had an annoying notice popping up from this program saying 'The Wireless Network Adaptoor could not be found'. So I decided that I should find a solution on Intel's forums. I came across a thread that discussed my problem, and one of the Intel workers mentioned that Uninstalling and Reinstalling the program would be the best solution. So I followed the steps and came across a huge problem . Turns out that once I removed this program, my computer wouldn't connect to my wireless network in my house. I went onto my other devices throughout the home and they all seemed to be working fine, and that my router was still working fine aswell. I went onto my other computer and downloaded the program onto my USB, and installed it back onto my original computer. There still wasn't any difference, and my computer still currently can't connect to my wireless access point.

Hi everyone: Im having an extremely frustrating problem connecting to my Netgear DG384G v3 wireless router in my flat.

In short:

Ever since I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro, internet browsers do not detect a connection to the internet despite a wireless connection being detected in the network connections (and the icon in the system tray) when my wireless adapter is plugged into my PC. Connection problems only occurred after the reformat, another PC in my flat connects wirelessly to our router with no problems (before, during & after the time I reformatted; Im posting this using his PC) and the router config settings have definitely not been changed in any way so its not a router problem. It appears that the wireless adapter is able to detect a signal from the router but the router is not sending information to the adapter (I cant even connect to the router setup IP address

More detailed:

1) I wiped the PCs harddrive then reinstalled Windows XP Pro I thought the recovery disk would have drivers with it (like others Id used) but it didnt so I had to manually find nVidia chipset & 3com Ethernet controller drivers and SP1 (for USB 2.0 functionality), download them on another PC and transfer and install them on mine. I got SP2, this didnt change anything, I changed back to SP1, still no change to connectivity.

Could it be that my laptop's network adapter is not functioning? 

A:my wireless adapter won't connect but my usb adapter can

Did you check your wireless settings to make sure the device is enabled?Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center/Change adapter settings which is on the upper left side of the page.What does it say for the laptop's built in wireless adapter?To answer your question, yes it is possible that it's "broken" and will not work.

I have the linksys wireless g pci adapter WMP54G, according to the box it is compatable with wireless B. I have it installed on my new Vista desk top computer that i bought today with the correct drivers. It will connect to my neighbours wireless g router so the adapter is working. however it shows a signal from my DLINK DI-514 Router but when i try to connect i get this error message "wireless association failed due to an unknown reason".
I have called DLINK and Linksys and they are no help.
I think that i need to somehow set the adapter to B wireless but i don't know how or if it is supposed to be automatic.

Please help me i have spent countless hours trying to fix this.

thanks for looking in and trying to help. I have a laptop with Windows 7 on it, and as usual today the laptop's screen frame also accomodates the internal Wireless Internet antenna. I am able to use the existing networks when they are close enough to me.

But I wanted to have a better reception, so I bought one of those USB-based Wireless Internet Adapters (WIA) which have mounted a little 5 dBi antenna (dBi = Decibel) on its side. I bought recently a much larger 22 dBi antenna, which I can use to replace the smaller antenna on that WIA. Windows also recognized the USB device correctly (please see the screenshot link: http://www.NADB.net/v/Prom/WLAN.jpg), but the connection tool at the lower right side of Windows (system tray area) displays only those networks which the internal screen frame antenna captures.

I tried already to disable the internal antenna, but then I don't get any network. Why can't the Network Connection icon not show networks the USB WIA might capture? What is it I am doing wrong?

Please don't mind to ask me for additional details here, I will provide them as additional details.

I am trying to clean my girlfriends computer which cannot connect to any wireless router.  I have gone through the normal malware and security cleanses (Malware bytes, JRT, AVG) and got to the point that they come up clean when rerun (but had a host of issues prior).  Two issues are still present - I randomly still get chkdsk errors, but cannot fix them in the command box, as it tells me it is being used by something else so I have to schedule it for next reboot.  The second an main issue is that I cannot connect to wireless.  Initially the adapter would not even show any wireless routers.  After deleting/recreating the adapter and other tricks I have found it starting showing all the routers in my building but if I tried to connect to them it would not give me a prompt for a password (the icon also did no indicate that it was secure network).  I ran SFC /Scannow once and the logfile shows tons of files that it could not repair.  After all that, my adapter is no longer showing any wireless routers anymore.  I believe I still have some viruses (or reminiscent thereof) but I think I have many corrupted files.  Also - no Windows recovery disk and the only option this MSI laptop has is a full blown recovery that wipes the disk which is my last resort.

I have a laptop (HP Compaq cq62) with Windows 7 64 bit and I have a strange problem with my wireless adapter.

When I close the lid the laptop goes into sleep mode. When I open the lid and log in on my laptop, the wireless adapter can not find any routers. I have to go to my network settings window, disable my wireless adapter, enable the wireless adapter and then it is working.

Does anyone know how to solve this? Obviously, I just want to open my lid and direct have internet access instead of disable/enable the wireless adapter.


A:Wireless adapter does not connect

Go into Control Panel, Power Options, Change Plan Settings, Change Advanced Settings and disable the setting to allow the Wireless to be turned off. That usually fixes this kind of problem.

You could also check the manufacturers web site and see if there is an updated driver for your wireless device.

You will need the full model number as there are many different ones available: Select a product or category from the list below - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Hello. I'm on my grandparents computer... they are running windows 10. They are out of town and they didn't have wifi hooked up.... so i saw they had this 2WIRE 802.11g usb wireless adapter. model#US-G-AT-02.

I cant figure out exactly how to connect to it. They have this info written down about an S/N, WEP Key and '2wire321'. When i look through the wireless networks available i do not see that though. Any suggestions?

A:Wireless usb adapter, cant connect

If your grandparents agreed to allow you access to their computer while they were out of town, I would think they would insure it was set up properly and has an active internet connection.

My IBM T41 has an installed adapter. It says that it connects to the wireless networks I set up for it, but when I open web browsers, it doesn't really connect to the internet. I know the icon in the system tray for it is a computer monitor. The screen of the little monitor should blink if it works, and mine does not blink. I tried putting in 2 new adapters, but those failed to work.

3 years ago I had this same problem. I called my internet provider and someone was able to control my laptop from his computer. He opened some sort of settings screen that I had never seen before. I didn't even see how he got to it because he did it all so fast. After he changed a setting, my laptop was able to connect to the wireless internet. Since then, my internet provider has begun charging for this service so I've opted out of doing it again. I wonder if the man was using settings on the router website. If he was, what settings did he change that allowed my computer to connect?

I have a Embarq 660 Series modem, but i wanted wifi. so i bought a belkin N300 wireless router this morning. And it won't connect to internet. I'm pretty sure i've plug the cable in the right spot. And the EQ 660R ADSL router/modem is working. The belkin package came with a CD, and it's the setup program for the wireless router. but as it tried to form a connection, it said failed to connect to the modem. so does this means embarq 660 series isn't compatible with Belkin N300?

A:Solved: why can't my eq 660R ADSL router connect to Belkin N300?

I vaguely recall that the Embarq modem/routers default to the same LAN IP addresses (192.168.2.x) as the Belkin routers do. If this is the case to daisy chain the routers you need to change the LAN addresses of one of them (e.g., to 192.168.3.x).

Or you could use the Belkin as just an ethernet switch and wireless access point ...

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router... Read more

I was wondering if anyone can help,

I have been having trouble connecting to the internet via my wireless adapter on my laptop.

I have been able to connect when i hard wire the laptop but not when i try to use it woreless. I managed to coonect yesterday for a few hours but today i am having te same problems.



A:Unable to connect through wireless adapter

Hi. Please supply the laptop make and model along with the router model.

If you are able to connect with an ethernet cable then it's highly unlikely to be the router.

Is your wireless network secured ? i.e. do you need a WEP / WPA key in order to access it?

Do you have wireless USB adapter or is wireless capability built into the laptop? Either way if you go to Device Manager look for any yellow exclamation marks next to your Network Adapter.

Go to RUN and type services.msc , make sure the following Services are set to Automatic and say started


DHCP Client

Wireless Zero Configuration.

Then go to RUN and type cmd

When the Command Prompt Window Opens type ipconfig /flushdns

The message should say Successfully Flushed the Resolver Cache.

Just some pointers - I can maybe of more specific help if you provide more detail. Good luck.

I just signed up today as I'm having a networking problem and I can't figure out how to fix it.

The main internet connection to the internet is through my main computer running XP (all my pc's are XP). I have a Linksy's router connected here. I have a computer in my sons room, a computer in my dining room, and my laptop, and they all connect through the wireless network. Everything was fine untill we got another computer (hand me down). I thought this other computer may be faster, and it is more up to date, so I unhooked my computer in the dining room, and hooked up the 'new' computer. I had to buy a new wireless adapter (USB for this one and my laptop. The other two have the wireless thing inside) so I could connect it to the network. It worked just fine. It found the network, and I was able to connect to the internet. Well, since then, the pc in my sons room, and my laptop, won't connect to the internet. They could find a network connection, but I'm thinking it was finding the new adapter I connected because instead of saying 'found- Linksy's', it said linksy's and some numbers next to it.
Anyway, after realizing the the 'new' computer was actually slower than the one we already had in the dining room, and since the other two computers couldn't get online anymore, I decided to just put the one that was in the dining room, back, and just not use the new pc. Now, I have THREE computers that w... Read more

A:My wireless adapter won't connect to my router

If your network is secured connect one of the computer to the router via ethernet and disable encryption. Try to connect wirelessly that way. If successful you can probably then re-enable encryption and reconnect.

If you can't even communicate with the router via ethernet reset the router to factory default settings and start over.

Note that if it is problem to move a computer to the router you can always temporarily move the router to the computer for configuring it.

I have seached everywhere trying to find instructions on how to connect to two WLANs with one wireless network adapter but I haven't been able to find anything.

Apparently this is possible using the Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter - but how?

The reason is that I have two WLANs - one is a router which connects network attached storage, the other is a router connecting the internet.

Internet WLAN Gateway =
NAS WLAN Gateway =

An explanation of how I could maintain my connection to the internet WLAN while still being able to access data on the NAS through the NAS WLAN would be excellent.

Thank you!!

A:How to connect to two WLANs with one wireless adapter??

Hi there
Question unclear (or at least to me)

Do you need CONCURRENT access to both LANS or individual access.

I assume you need concurrent access -- so you need to turn something into a "Hotspot".

Try this piece of FREE software -- I think it should do what you want.

The Free version should enable "Shared Internet".

(If it's not applicable -- well I'm not 100% clear in what you want to do !!).

I have a Netgear wgr614v6 router connected to my main computer, and a Roswill pci wireless adapter rnx g300e installed in my backup computer. When I had WinXp installed on both, I was able to connect my backup computer wirelessly to the router. I upgraded my main computer to Windows 7 Professiional, and Windows Home Premium on my backup computer. I recently decided to set the backup computer up permanently and tried to connect to the router. The wireless card shows up in device manager and is installed correctly. When I try to connect, the card can see the name of my main computer, but cannot access the internet. I made the router open, ie no security to see if anything changed, but it didn't. I'm not sure if I have to create a home network first or not, but since the backup computer cannot connect to the internet it won't have an ip address. I use Norton Internet Security 2010. Can anyone offer a solution? Thanks in advance.

A:Wireless adapter cannot connect to my router

First, uninstall (don't disable) Norton Security and then reboot. It's hard to troubleshoot a driver or hardware problem when there is a third party firewall application installed. After that's done, try to connect to your router again. It that still doesn't work, check for drivers from the manufacturer. Sometimes Windows installs what it thinks is the correct driver, but turns out it isn't the one you need.
