Network Adapter "Wireless Network Connection" Problem for VGN FE41S

Q: Network Adapter "Wireless Network Connection" Problem for VGN FE41S

Hi,

For several days my wireless connection has been connecting and disconnecting. Today I tried connecting to wireless and cannot actively see any wireless networks available. My wireless switch is on and is showing a blue light and Network Adapters in Device Manager show no warnings however when I run diagnose in Network Sharing Centre it tells me that Network Adapter "Wireless Networks Connection" is not connected.

The Wireless Router is fine and another laptop and iPad seem to have no problems connecting to it please could you advise?

I am running Windows Vista on a Vaio VGN FE41S

Many thanks,

J. Smith

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.)

Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

If you are using the Mac OS then use http://www.istumbler.net/ or
if you want to optimise base station position and signal strength / dead spots use
http://www.chimoosoft.com/products/apgrapher/ which has a graph function to monitor signal

Hi all, so I have gotten the above message when trying to connect to my wireless, and it's saying I have limited access to the connection. I know it's not a router/modem issue as all other computers in the house are connecting without trouble. This all happened after I attempted to uninstall "Adaware" which I had installed to find and remove a nasty keylogger. Halfway through uninstalling I got a blue screen of death, and when I rebooted, I couldn't connected to the wireless. Anyone know of a potential solution?

Hello,

After functioning properly for a long time, my wireless internet has stopped functioning. I was watching youtube while installing the user software for a new wireless printer (Canon imageCLASS MF4800 Series) from a CD. I accidently hit the CD eject which interrupted the installation. I pushed the CD back in and resumed installation, which completed quickly and all the programs it installed worked fine. After my youtube video finished I noticed that I was no longer connected to the network the bottom right indicator thing said "Not connected, No connections available."

When I try to make a network map from the control panel it says, "The adapter is not connected." I can connect to the network with an ethernet cable (into my modem) and I can also connect to the internet with a wired hotspot from my phone (via usb).

I am pretty sure my modem is setup properly because it has worked with this computer for a long time and is currently working with a similar laptop (also HP, also Windows 7 Professional x64).

I have looked around on the internet for fixes so I have tried disabling and enabling my "Wireless Network Connection" in the Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections page, without success. I have also tried uninstalling the Network Adapter from the Device manager and then restarting my computer, without success. My network adapter drivers are also up to date (according to windows)

Running XP on 2 computers. Have them connected by a router. I set the router IP to 192.168.3.1 Everything connects great! When I connect to a wireless network, it all connects, but doesn't work ("connection timed out" or "Page not found" errors. The wire connection shows an IP of 192.168.2.1. If I disable my Local Area Network, the internet connects perfectly. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I CAN USE MY LOCAL AREA NETWORK AND THE WIRELESS CONNECTION AT THE SAME TIME! Frustrating to the max! Any network specialists out there who can tell me how to fix this? Thanks!!!

You should know that x.x.2.1 is incorrect. For the router address shown, all devices that connect to it *must* be 192.168.3.x where x > 1 and < 255.

I would suspect that you have some static configuration data in the devices.

You want your router to offer DHCP in the range 2->32 (that's more than enough) and
you want all systems to use DHCP for the IP address and DNS settings.

Remove anything in the Alternative Configurations

Linksys WRT54g Wireless router with a Linksys 5 port workgroup switch on my end so that I can operate three computers at my desk.

There IS an ethernet line plugged into the ethernet port on my new windows vista PC. I run primarily windows xp but got stuck with vista on this new beast because they wouldn't sell the package without it. My only copy of xp is for dell so I can't install it on an eMachines. I won't run windows 2k on this one because it won't run some of the programs I use.

So the network is composed of mostly xp and one or 2 windows 2k computers... there are a LOT of computers on this LAN.

All I want is to get this stinking POS connected again. and by again I mean I was playing world of warcraft on it less than 10 hours ago. It worked GREAT.

If somebody could tell me what this CRAP operating system just did to 'FORGET' how to connect to my network I would really appreciate it.

Hey, so I have a problem and although i'm terrible at describing computer problems I'll give it my best shot. So one day I turn on my HP Pavilion dv6000 with Windows Vista x64 Ultimate and the internet would not work and it had been the previous day. The wireless connection switch is turned on and the light is blue, not orange, but my computer will not detect any networks. My little brother has an HP desktop with the same OS but he is not having problems connecting or finding the network so the problem is obviously internal to my computer. WHen i diagnose and repair it...i get the message: "plug a cable into the network adapter "Local Area Connection"." Again my connection is wireless and i have no idea how to fix this problem.

I recently bought my son a D-Link DWA-25 USB Wireless adapter for his desktop but I can't seem to get it to work. Not matter what I do (I have tried every bit of advice this wonderful forum has to offer) and so for all I get is "Acquiring Network Address." When I run ipconfig, it returns and ip address of 0.0.0.0 and a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0. Customer service for D-Link and Qwest were useless (spent most of the time blaming each other), so any help you guys and gals can lend me would be stupendous.
 

A:Stuck on "Acquiring Network Address" for Wireless Adapter on Windows XP

(from a JohnWill post)

IP addresses of 0.0.0.0 are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
1. DHCP Service not running.
2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
3. Bad NIC card drivers.
4. Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, reboot the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
4. Replace the Network Interface Card.

I have purchased an older IBM Thinkpad that has been upgraded to Windows 2000 Pro. When I am in range of a known public Wi-fi network, or nearby to my home QSL modem (that has a built in router), the computer does not indicate that it has located an available network. This is when using, separately, both a Wi-fi card and a USB wireless adapter. (I have installed the required drivers.) When I consult the network connection information, it says, in either case: network cable unplugged. I can connect to the Internet via my home modem, if I plug the computer in directly, using an ethernet cable. But this does not solve the issue of being able to use a public network, when away from home.
I have also tried to set up a new network, but Windows 2000 does not seem to offer "setting up a wireless network" as an option. Any ideas?

1. Changed the SSID of the wireless profile i have, in the router
2. Changed the Password (WPA - PSK)
3. repaired the wireless network connection and tried to connect but in vain
4. But when i disabled the security option in the router, i am able to connect to my wireless network. The issue is only when the security option is set.I am using WPA.

Other threads in connections with this issues dont seem to do the job.

A:Local Area Connection: "Network cable unplugged" but I'm wireless!!

Most wireless routers need to be directly connected to a pc during setup, so that you can configure it properly. Does your laptop have an integrated network port, or a NIC pc card? If so, you need to plug an ethernet cable in to the laptop & router. The error you're getting is due to the wizard not finding a physical connection to use at this point.

I have Comcast cable internet in Atlanta and use a Motorola SB6121 modem and a Linksys wireless router. The wireless network has been up and running for over a year and I have never had any problems with it and I have never made any changes to it after the initial setup. I connect to the wireless network using two smart phones and an Apple laptop. I live in an apartment so the signal strength is always high and I am never more than one room away from the wireless router.

It was working fine one night like always and then in the morning I was unable to connect to the wireless network. I can still access the internet via wired ethernet cable so I know the internet is online and it is downloading at full speed. I can access the internet via wired connection directly from the modem to the computer. I can also access the internet via wired connection from the modem to the router to the computer. Comcast shows no problems with the connection on their end.

I have purchased all new ethernet cables so I know the cables aren't the problem so I figured the wireless router might have a problem. I bought a new wireless router (Apple Airport Express) and created a new wireless network. I can see the network name is available and it has full signal strength with WPA2 encryption just like it had always been with the old router.

A:Unable to connect to wireless network. "Internet connection is too slow."

if the router is working with a cable connection, then its unlikely to be the modem , unless thats also a router and you are using it for DHCP

you say the modem is connected by cable to the router
and any device connected to the router by cable works perfectly - is that correct

on the old router - have you removed the wireless security and see if you can connect ?

carried out a full power cycle - see below

also it would be worth making a note of the router configuration and do a factory reset on the router and re setup and try again

with a PC connected by a cable direct to the modem can we see an ipconfig /all
now do a power cycle and connect the router

Hi All,

Hoping to get some direction or help here...

I have two Toshiba laptops, both have inbuilt WiFi connections.
I have a Satellite P20 with Win XP and a Satellite P100 with Vista.
I connect to a Cable Modem through a Buffalo Wireless Access Point running WEP and with SSID Broadcast On.

The P20 (XP) unit connects with no problems.
The P100 (Vista) intermittently drops to "Limited Connectivity". Sometimes switching the WiFi card off and on, using the external switch, will return the connection, as will Disabling/Enabling the card. But, in each case, the connection normally lasts just a few minutes before dropping again.

I have reset the Modem, and the Wireless Access Point, but with no improvement.

Any ideas?

Running Windows Vista, and a Netgear WG311V3 wireless card.

I head that if you untick QoS in Properties (next to Internet Protocol etc) then your connection would be faster; I've been having problems so I tried it.

All it did was remove "Wireless Network Connection" from my Network Connections - there are now only 2 icons there - 1 for the wired connection (plugged in my ethernet cable to write this) and "Internet Conection".

I have no idea how to get it back, if anyone knows how that'd be great. I've since tried reinstalling my wireless card, didn't help. I can't even configure my wireless card now for some reason.

But that's off-topic - how do I get "Wireless Connection" back into my Network Connections?

Regards in advance,

Chris

I was connected to my neighbors wireless network via Linksys for several months, but after he had it shut off and reconnected they gave him a different IP address, ID and password. I have all the passwords and the signal shows up, but it is continually "aquiring a network address". Does he have to change something in his settings to allow access once again?

A:Wireless connection "acquiring network address" continually

Let's give this a shot, practicing our ipconfig and netsh commands...

Open an elevated command prompt.

netsh winsock reset catalog

netsh int ip reset reset.log

ipconfig /release (be patient)

ipconfig /renew (be patient)

ipconfig /all

should show your ip address. Hopefull this will work for you.

My internet connection has been on and off ever since I got my new Windows 7 laptop. I have had nothing but trouble and it is completely frustrating. At first I thought it was just my computer but then I took it to a public network and it stayed connected well. There are four computers in my house, not including mine, and they all connect well. They are fast and they can download things at a normal fast speed. My new computer, when it actually connects, is incredibly slow at downloading anything. It can't stay connected without switching to "identifying..." for minutes at a time and it is so frustrating. I constantly try the troubleshooting and it usually just tells me that there is something wrong with the router but obviously not if all the other computers work. Just recently I noticed it said "Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration.

What does that mean and how can I fix it?

Is that the reasoning behind all my problems?

Actually the information that you've received from the trouble shooter is probably more accurate, then you give it credit for. I suspect you will need to look into a firmware update for your router and see if that might resolve your issue.

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

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Hi,

I am unable to access the Internet. I am connected to a wireless network, with excellent signal strength. All other devices in my home are also successfully connected to the network and have Internet access. My PC did as well until about three evenings ago, when it began displaying a yellow exclamation point on the relative icon in the system tray, as well as a red "X" on the second leg of the map within the network and sharing center. I have attempted numerous fixes over the past several days, and for several hours today alone, all from posts with a title similar to this post. However, none of these efforts have resulted in success. Incidentally, I am running Windows 7.

What would you suggest?

Finally, I am posting this from my smart phone, because I am unable to access the internet from the laptop in question, so I am unable to provide the system info as suggested above.

Thank you!

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, kaspersky or Mcafee or any free security suites like zonealarm, AVG , Webroot etc

try doing a tcp/ip reset - see how below ( as you cant post the results, let me know about any errors)

can we see an ipconfig /all

hello all,

my internet has previously worked without any problems. two days ago, it said i was connected with limited connectivity. i tried disabling/enabling my wireless, unplugging the wireless router, and running troubleshoot. the computer said that my wireless network connection doesnt have a valid IP configuration. neither of my roomates had this issue (they can still get to the internet fine). i was worried that it was something with my internet, so i went to a friends house and it worked there. i then ran system restore to a period when internet worked, thinking it could have been a bad update, but still no change. i went into my IP address configuration, and it is all set to automatically find. not sure where to go from here. any help?

i have an asus computer, windows 7 ultimate (32bit).

A:"Wireless network connection" doesnt have a valid IP configuration...

If you can type ipconfig/all into an Elevated Command Prompt then post a screen shot of the results it would be very helpful.

It sounds like the wireless profile for your home connection was somehow corrupted or changed.

You can usually straighten that out by going into the Wireless Connection Manager in the Network and Sharing Center and making sure that the settings match the ones in your router.

The Bonjour service which installs with iTunes and Adobe Photo shop is also famous for causing this problem.

To fix ...
Run MsConfig

Under the Services tab uncheck the service called "##Id_String1.6844[... and then a bunch of numbers]" by Apple

Reboot and problem solved

To delete the Bonjour service.
1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Bonjour
2. Rename the mdnsNSP.dll file in that folder to mdnsNSP.old
3. Restart your computer
4. Delete the Program Files\Bonjour folder

Is there a way to fix it? etc.
Should I care?

Thanks in advance for any & all info.
 

A:"wireless network connection" more ERRORS received than packets sent...WHY???

It's most likely an indication of some issue with the hardware in the network. My guess is you're having a log of collisions on the Ethernet link.

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

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.

Okay, so here is my problem. I frequently bring my laptop to work where the is a public wireless signal. I work at a hospital. There is a secure network but I don't have the password for it, so I use the public one. Up until recently I used an old asus with vista, and while the signal was pretty low I had no problem connecting to it and staying connected. Just meant slow internet for me. However, that computer has sadly died and I bought a samsung NP700Z5B-S01UB. And while it's a very nice machine, I cant seem to connect to the network here. It shows that there is a low wireless signal, but it still wont let me connect. The error it gives me is "wireless network connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. Is there anything I can do with the computer to fix this problem, since I cannot do anything to the wireless network at all (as it is a network associated with the hospital). If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

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

Hello mystic, and welcome to Sevenforums!

First, do you have the latest driver installed for it? I don't know what version of windows you have so here is the general link to the drivers: Samsung - you will need the wireless driver(s). Uninstall your current wireless driver before installing the new one, which means you will need to download the new one first or use a LAN cable to have an internet connection to download the driver.

Here is an internet troubleshooting guide you might be able to use: Internet Troubleshooting Guide

However, it sounds like this computer works at home, just not at the hospitol, so it may be some kind of incompatability or any number of reasons. Make sure you have all windows updates installed as that can sometimes help such issues.

Hi all,

I hope someone can help me. I am a newbie at networking. I am trying to set up basic wireless networking in Windows XP Home Edition. I have followed instructions to set up the network. The instructions tell me to go to "Control Panel" and click on "Network Connections". Then from there it tells me to right click on the "Wireless Network Connection" icon and select "Properties".

The big problem is that I do not have a "Wireless Network Connection" icon at all (see attached). How do I get the "Wireless Network Connection" icon to appear in my "Network Connections" dialog box/window?? I have tried looking everywhere but can not find a way to activate this icon.

My computer is a Hewlett Packard home PC. I have successfully installed a 4port Netgear router and have also successfully connected a Netgear wireless "g" access point to this router. From all indication, all the hardware is working fine and I am able to connect to the internet via the router. I wonder if the Netgear wireless access point has somehow disable my "Wireless Network Connection" icon.

Sorry for the rambling but I would really appreciate any suggestions at this point. It's been frustrating.

Thank you,

"Windows has found the software for your driver but has encountered a problem installing driver software"

i reformatted my hard drive, did about 7 fresh clean installs of windows 7 both 64bit and 32bit, i system restored (before i reformatted) i did system repair, i went on my old computer (the one i'm using now) and downloaded the LAN Driver from MSI Motherboard website, and yet nothing seems to work

i seen possible theories like, remove the ram and start my computer then place it back in, reset the cmos battery, and put my graphics card back in any suggestions?

A:Network Adapter Driver "Encountered Problem"

The preferred and recommended source for on-board device drivers is the PC/Laptop manufacturer's website if it's a well-known brand with good customer support. They often have motherboards or on-board devices custom made along with custom made drivers which only they have.

Consequently, drivers from the motherboard or network card manufacturer may not work.

Of course, that doesn't apply if you built the PC yourself, had it built for you, or you fitted a new motherboard. In those instances you do get drivers from the motherboard maker exactly as you have done.

Hi all

I've recently had my internet failing on me. I've got a BT Home Hub which i use to connect my computer to (specs in signature) via onboard LAN, as well as my housemates computer and XBox 360 via wireless. Everythings been fine for about 1.5 years but recently after installing a new OS (XP home) on a new hard disk (about 2 weeks after this new setup) ive had the computer tell me that the "network cable is unplugged" when i boot up. Theres nothing wrong with the cable which is slotted properly, or with the onboard LAN (device details says everything is working properly). After 5 minutes or so itll look up an IP address and connect (sometimes itll take a bit longer). its probably not the new installation but i have re-installed a Samsung DVD-ROM drive and MS Office 2003 with the downloaded updates - could these have messed up the onboard LAN somehow?

Its quite annoying that this is occuring since i cant find everything that is obviously wrong, any suggestions would be much appreciated!

my onboard LAN is a Murvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Adpater, Copper RJ-45
 

A:internet problem with ethernet connection - "network cable is unplugged"

In correct settings will give you the same error message. Back track your setup... Remove and reinstall everything, then force a reset by pressing the reset buttton in the back of the cable modem, and the routers, and reboot.
If your devices are all from the same manufacturer, their disc will usually fix them all.
Also, your internet provider can tell a lot by looking into your system from their tech support bench in Las Vegas.

Hi everyone, I resolved my previous issue on my PC (see previous post), now I have a different one.

My PC is connected over my WLAN to the internet. Everything is working fine, I am posting this message from said PC. However, there are some minor quirks in the configuration that I would like to explore. Firstly, my network is called DannyGooner, but I am connected (in the Network and Sharing Centre) to DannyGooner 2.

Secondly, the wirelss icon in my taskbar shows a red X, and when I click on it, there is a red X next to DannyGooner. When I click on that wireless network, I am told that "the settings saved for on this computer do not match the requirements of the network".

I have checked the settings with my laptop and they are exactly the same. Plus I am using the wireless connection now!

Very strange - I'd like to get this resolved as I want to use this PC to broadcast audio and if there are problems with the connection, that will obviously be an issue. Any ideas please??? I've attached a picture that shows some of the settings, hope this helps...

Thanks for reading!

Hi,

I have a problem. A certain wireless network PCCard decided to suddenly stop working. It used to work fine, but now when I try to connect it says "acquiring network address" for a long time, then it says I have limited or no connectivity (even though the signal strength is good). I hadn't made any changes to the system before this happened, and replacing it with another older card I have works fine. Anyone knows what the problem might be? Has the card simply broken, or could it be a deeper problem? Thanks!

Hi,

I've had a wireless problem with my laptop for the last 6 months and despite several attempts to get it working, it just won't connect.

I've enabled DHCP, tested the card and it's fine, checked my key has been entered correctly, configured my router, and everything looks fine. I just can't see what's happening with it.

Every time my wireless tries to connect, it doesn't get any further than 'acquiring network authentication'

It's a Broadcom by the way.

I'm coming close to just selling the damn thing...

Any ideas?

Thanks

I've got Windows 7 Professional and I've been having trouble with my wireless network. I can connect with the network but it always gives me a "No Internet Access" message and I can't use the internet. I try release/renew connections using ipconfig which sometimes work but mostly only briefly. What usually works is attempting to connect to the wireless router through my web browser but if it does work it's slow. I am able to get a second wireless network in range and that was working consistently however now it is giving me the same trouble. My primary network has also been extremely slow (under a third of the normal speeds and three-four times the latency time). I have a second PC using Windows 7 Pro and I have the same trouble. My landlords bought a range extender because the signal is week in my apartment (an apartment behind the garage at their house, not a complex) which works to boost the signal but I don't know if it's contributing to the trouble or just not broadcasting the signal correctly. I'm running a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4201 with the built-in Intel wireless antenna.

Can anyone help with this? I'm excellent with computers but networks are not my strongest suit.
