Ran Combofix, now unable to connect to network

Q: Ran Combofix, now unable to connect to network

I was recently infected with the Live Security Platinum malware and took steps to remove it. After removal, Microsoft Security Essentials could not be started, saying The specified service does not exist as an installed service. On another site, I was told to run Combofix to try and correct the problem. Once I ran it, the problem waqs not fixed AND I am now unable to connection to my internet connection. I know there is no problems with the modem, as plugging directly into my laptop shows there is no problem with the connection. So now I am stuck and have received no assistance at the other site and thought I would see if I could get assistance here. I am currently running Windows Vista 64 bit. The internet connection shows as an unidentified network with access to Local Only. Here is the Log from Combofix. Thanks for any assistance.

Hi,

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

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

Hi,

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

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

Thanks!

I need real help. I had cable internet 12mbs installed last September (2010) in my one bedroom apartment. Before that, I was connecting to a spotty 1.5mbs network that was open next door (with their permission). I was able to obtain fast and efficient internet access for about 3 or 4 months and then it became intermittent. For the past 2 months I have been unable to connect through my home cable modem/router at all. I have been to the cable company and they have tested the cable modem/router and the signal which comes into the router and out at fast speeds. I have been 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. It doesn't matter whether I am hard wired or on wifi.

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

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

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

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

On-Board NIC

Let me run down the spiel of this network saga:

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

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

Thanks in advance for the help.

and welcome to the Forum

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

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

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

further more, i saw that the HP Wireless Assistant starts all by itself after a few minutes that I start the laptop, although the wireless adapter is disabled.
now, i keep the computer completely disconnected from the network trying to figure out what is it to be done.

HELP.

I've just installed a new modem as a result of upgrading by broadband and my windows 8 PC won't connect. I've googled and followed almost every tip

ipconfig /release
ipconfig / renew

ipconfig /release6
ipconfig / renew6

ipconfig /flushdns

plus whatever else is out there. Every other device worked a treat except my desktop on windows 8.

When I try and do a ipconfig /renew it goes away and eventually comes back saying it could not find the DHCP server, what am I missing???

help please

I've been trying to help a friend fix her computer. I seem to be stuck and can't figure it out.

I scanned it with AVG and the only infection that shows up is Trojan horse BackDoor.Generic14.BZSZ. I also scanned with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and quite a bit more infected files showed up. It crashes whenever I try to repair anything. The computer is running Windows 7 32bit. The only obvious symptoms I can see is it's not able to connect to any network.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

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

I check other posts and found I could do a TCP/IP reset so I have done that.
If have executed these commands on a elevated command line:
- netsh winsock reset catalog
- netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
- netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

I have restared the laptop afterwards but the problem remains: I am unable to connect to the router.

This is the output of the "ipconfig /all" command (command is ran while I've had only the adapter with the cable enabled, wireless adapter was disabled):

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

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

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

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

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

Any ideas?

Thanks!

A:Unable to connect to wireless network

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

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.

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.

How can I eliminate this problem?

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

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

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

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

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

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

It simply stopped working.

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

Hello! First post here, probably won't be my last

Here's the situation... I'm trying to connect to my wireless network, but when I do, it simply says "Windows could not connect to (my network name)"
Then I go to troubleshooting, and I get to a loading screen that says "Detecting problems, looking for problems in adapter, resolving problems, ver... etc" and then another window pops up when that's done, that basically tells me to reset the adapter, wait 10 seconds, yada yada you know how that goes.

I reset my modem, and then press "Check to see if the problem is fixed."

Same loading screen comes up as the one I posted above.Then it comes to a screen that says "Windows could not resolve your wireless connectivity issue."
There is a backstory to this. Last weekend, my mom's computer crashed (not exactly sure what happened, she is much less computer literate than I am and just credited the crash to a virus, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't it... long story short she just had a friend re-install windows 7 and whatnot.)
She needed me to her re-connected to our wireless network.. At the time, I was able to (and was) connected to our network. I ran into the same problem with hers, but ended up doing something to get it to work. I didn't meddle with any of the network options, I don't think (I can't remember...

I've warned my gf about letting her 11 and 16y/o use the computer, as well as them, explaining that when they "accept" some offer..it's always, at best spyware, and at worst malware.

Periodically I clean it up, occasionally finding malware. The last one I found was located with the suffix .ru which is Russia. I suspect it was a trojan. When I removed it, all of a sudden, the computer which connected to the verizon modem, stopped connecting.

It's as though something within the computer has changed...? I eventually, in frustration, reformatted and reloaded win98se, expecting that to fix it. It did not.

I have tried multiple network cards, different slots, and different modems, both her dsl modem, and then at my place, via my network that feeds into verizon dsl. My other comps work just fine.

Could the malware have changed the networking somehow? Computer works just fine otherwise, but will not connect via any of three network cards, even though two work just fine in my computer.

I'm lost...any thoughts?

Thanks,

First we need the systems specs. Hd size, Ram amount, cpu chip. Second try this. It's been awile since I used 98SE but I think there is an icon on the desktop called My Network or My Network Places.

If it is not right click and click enable. If it is enabled then right click and click repair. Try to connect after that. Hope this helps.

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?

Okay, so here's the status. I can't connect to my network at all. There are no connections listed in the Network Connections menu in the Control Panel. The ipconfig /all results in the message 'Internal error. The request is not supported'. In the Device Manager, all the network adapter components are listed (mainly the Marvell Yukon controller), however they all have exclamation marks next to them.

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