Wireless Network Connection will only connect to Internet if Lcl Area Connect disable

Q: Wireless Network Connection will only connect to Internet if Lcl Area Connect disable

Have a USB wireless WiFi unit. To connect to the Internet. Have to disable the Local Area Connection. When connected to the Internet. If I enable the Local Area Connection. Unable to connect to the Internet. When I disable the LAC, the Internet connection is restablished. Using a D-Link boradband VPN router.

Preferred Solution: Wireless Network Connection will only connect to Internet if Lcl Area Connect disable

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: Wireless Network Connection will only connect to Internet if Lcl Area Connect disable

sounds about right! Your big issue will be the VPN, as it is frequently specifically
config'd to use a specific adaptor AND to force all tcp traffic thru that connection,
even though you want to do some trivial google.com search.

Consider using a Hardware Profile to define
1) a LAN connection environment (ie no WiFi)
2) a WiFi environment (w/o a LAN)

the choice occurs at boot time and the hardware is enabled/disabled per
the profile.

I'm using my home desktop to make this post. This is issue is with my Dell laptop that--up till an hour ago--had a wireless area connection icon in the lower right corner and a Wireless Area Network option when I went to "Network Connections" (I still have my LAN option.) I was using a Driver Whiz program to update all my drivers when it said I needed some Intel Wireless Config program. So I downloaded it but at the end I had no Internet access and no icon, etc. So I uninstalled that program but it was too late. I've even tried a system restore to a few hours prior to this mistake of mine to no avail. My husband says I need to connect hardwire to the Internet and download a WAN driver...is that correct?

Good evening I am having problems with my home network named Dlink Jones, I use a WiFi based adapter off my laptop to pick up the connection but for some reason it hasn't been connecting. Currently I'm picking up another connection but this one is much weaker than my home network connection. I tried to reset the firewall settings but I didn't have any luck getting the connection to become established. That being said I'm not the most computer literate person in the world so I don't know if I reset it properly. My WLAN is on and I can see the light, I have internet connection but not to the preferred network, and I also have this (System Info Utility):

I have a lenovo u160 running windows 7, a couple of days ago it seemed my computer was infected with something, giving a series of security warnings I had not seen before (not av security suite). It slowed the computer down for a few minutes.

After closing these messages, there seemed to be no problem, but then my computer was no longer connect to the internet. It connects to our router/wireless network, but not to the internet.

I tried resetting and unplugging the router and the modem, but still no luck. We have two other computers on the same network that are connecting to both the network and the internet.

I tried running rkill and malwarebytes twice and no malicious items were detected.

I restored the computer to an earlier point (2-3 days earlier)

On the toolbar in the bottom right of the taskbar, it shows a 5 white signal bars, with a "!" inside a yellow triangle.
If I click on the network button it states it is "connected" to the network. It describes the connection as "excellent" (4-5/5 bars).

Above the display of the available networks, it states

"currently connected to:
Unidentified network
No Internet access"

I am not computer savvy and have not run into this problem before. Thanks for your time and help.

Hi I need a little assistance. I am on a dell laptop running Windows XP Pro SP2. This is my mothers laptop and I have no clue what she did with it. OK, so I have an IP address, connected to Wireless network, can ping DNS Server, DHCP server, and Default Gateway. Tried the Winsock reset and the int ip reset. Also IPconfig release and renew. Haven't gone into the registry yet (Kinda nervous don't wanna mess anything else up. Need specific instructions). Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers (found online). Ran into a whole different set of problems and error messages, but I've gotten all those resolved already. I connected a LAN line with still no luck. I even installed Firefox. With all that done it still won't connect to the internet. I've used up all my tech savvy\expertise and I'm at a lost. Anything else you can think of that I can try? Thanks in advance

I can't connect to the internet. When I double click Local Area Network under Network connections it says it has both sent and received packets. It is set to automatically acquire an ip address. The computer is connected to a router. I can ping but when I try to reach my router's settings it says page can't be loaded. I tried to hook the computer up directly to the modem and connect that way. It said it was connected and it was sending packets but I still couldn't do anything. I've turned off the windows firewall. The computer is Windows XP SP1. Any ideas?

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.

When I try to connect from my phone or laptop it will say "Unable to obtain IP address" and "Network disabled because the internet connection i... Read more

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
with a PC connected by a cable direct to the router can we see an ipconfig /all

ipconfig /all

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

I recently upgraded my internet to a faster speed. I received a new router. I am able to connect my laptop via ethernet connection without any issues. I am able to connect my laptop wirelessly both at work and at school. I am unable to connect wirelessly at home. I can connect my stand alone computer to my internet connection. I am also able to connect my smart phone to this connection. When I attempt to log into the internet connection I enter the passphrase as instructed the entire screen goes blank and when I try to reconnect the computer is automatically entering a different passphrase and gives me a message "waiting for network" then it disappears and I am not connected - when I attemp to correct the passphase it will not store the new setting. I have tried updating the driver - changing the passphrase - restarting the computer, I have used the diagnostic check provided by Century Link and spent over 4 hours on the phone with them trying various things without any connection.

Hi. I use my PS3 controller to play games. I had it hooked up to play a game and then my PC froze. This caused a physical memory dump. After this my wireless network card would see my network but would not connect to it. I can connect to it wired, and other computers in the house can connect to it wirelessly, but this computer refuses to do so. I have checked the device manager and there are no exclamation points. I have also checked to be sure the device is not disabled and it is not. I have also reset the router several times as well as rebooting and shutting down the PC. I have been using the wireless connection for about 8 months now so I don't understand why it isn't working now. Please let me know any info you need from me to get this working again. Thanks.

I'm posting this for a family member who can't access the internet to post. I have not seen the computer so I can only give what details I can, but I can always text message the person for more details.

When right clicking on the wireless computer symbol in the corner near the clock they try to access their wireless connection (which works on 2 other laptops that are sometimes in their home) but they get the error "windows cannot connect to the wireless network connection". I had her check out the device manager and there didn't appear to be any problems in there. I had her check "Network connections" and she didn't see anything in there. There were two "wireless networks" listed in there. One said it was "Broadcom netXtreme gigabit Ethernet" and the other was called "LevelOne WPC-0301 11g wireless CardBus adapter" She tried doing the "repair" but it did not work.

I had her try the following: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/870702, when we got to the #4 "If the Windows Zero Configuration service is running, the words "STATE : # RUNNING" will appear." she noticed that instead of it saying RUNNING it said STOPPED.

A:windows cannot connect to the wireless network connection

Did this computer ever work on the wireless connection? or is this a problem with a new network connection?

Am assuming from the selected forum that we are dealing with windows XP. Is that correct?

From looking into the network cards that you listed it appears that the Level One card is the wireless and I'm thinking the Broadcom card is probably the wired network card on the machine. Is this computer a laptop?

I read through the manual for the level one wireless card located at http://global.level1.com/downloads.php?modelstr1=WPC&modelstr2=0301&sendtype=0
and it appears that this card has its own management software. In windows XP, if a network card has its own control software it can disable all windows control over connecting to wireless networks. Your friend should look through the installed programs for a management utility that may work to connect right away. I believe if this doesn't work, that there is a way to assign the control of wireless networks back to windows itself, but I can't remember how.

The link above to level 1's site also has downloads of the drivers for that card. The XP/Vista driver is the second one down in the driver's section.

So I have a brand new computer (home build) running Windows 8.1 and a brand spanking new USB wireless adapter (Trendnet N300 dual band). I installed the adapter from its disc on Friday and used it fine all night. Wake up Saturday and I'm getting 'limited connection' when connected to my home router.

After a lot of playing, updating the drivers for the adapter, updating Windows, playing i n command prompt...it now won't connect to the router at all.

I'm currently connecting via a bridged ethernet connection to my Macbook.

Extensive googling just isn't turning up a solution, and if anything seems to have made it worse seeing as the adapter can't even connect to the router now! This also seems to be a common problem with Windows 8.1?

Thanks for any help, I am really at my wit's end!

Unable to connect to network with either a wireless or hardwire connection.

I do not use this computer very often. It is the one used by my kids to play "Club Penguin", etc.

I was away at scout camp with my oldest boy and when I got back, the internet did not work. It appears that several other "System" resources are not working either.

I did IPCONFIG /ALL and nothing is connected.

I tried to ping the router and got no response. "Transmit failed"

I tried to go to restore and that failed as well.

I went to the store and picked up a new usb wireless card and that did not work either. I feel confident that the issue is NOT the wireless card. I attached a screen shot of the IPCONFIG /ALL screen.

I am having a challenge to figure out how to fix this.

Please help.

This magicly fixed my intenet connection on my desktop (XP) but when I tried to use the wireless on my laptops (Vista and Mac OS) nothing happend. The status on both laptops say "Connected" but the internet doesn't work. I have been researching this for quite some time now but haven't found a solution. Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thank you- Drakb

I have to use my desktop icon(net zero) to connect to internet. I get an error that remote computer is not responding other wise. what info do u need? thanx

A:cannot connect to internet using network connection

let's start with 'what do you expect should be happening'?
I think you're using a dial-up (pls correct me) and if so, that's the way all dial-ups work;
click on an icon
modem dials out
you log in
and as long as you stay connected,
email and your browser are functional.

Now I have switched to a new laptop. now, When I switch on the wifi hotspot, the laptop connects to the same. The wireless on laptio shows that it is connected to wi-fo (With Internet Access).

I have two wireless routers, one Linksys N and one Netgear G available in the box. My laptop is N and my wife's laptop is G. But I only have one internet connection. As far as I know the N network is degraded to G if I add her G laptop to the network. Could I activate the G router by connecting the two routers via a lan cable and assign her laptop to it? I would try that but searching and reading posts here makes me think I should avoid uneducated experiments.

Any help would be appreciated.

She keeps loosing connection, then has to wait until it decides it can connect again. She would wait about five minutes and then click on something and would gain access.


the symptom has been occurring for at least a month and more.

We are on a wireless network (Uverse) and have not had any problems with this wireless network

One thing i notice is that her icon for the connect shows one less bar than mine shows. I should be the same. they are both HP machines and sit in the same spot.

when it is not connected and the icon is clicked it does not show our connect name as an option. Sometimes rebooting solves the problem, sometimes clicking 'connect' does. It will work for a while and then she looses the connect.

I am not sure that her problems started when she got that "conduit" search malware. I had only partially removed it, it was still resident when another tab on her firefox was opened. Yesterday i found some additional information to remove the settings from registry and thought that had cured it. But apparently it did not, we are now back to the disconnect problem. last i tried it it wouldn't even connect on restart. Right now she is saying that its been doing pretty well for about five minutes. Probably wont last long.

I don't really know why this all started I think it went back before the 'conduit' thing got installed. She usually doesn't say anything to me she si... Read more

How far away from your computers is the router? Also; have you tried to power cycle the modem and router? If not; i would try that. Unplug both the modem and router; wait about a minute; then plug in the modem first; let that boot; then plug the router back in and let that boot. Try doing that and see if it helps the situation.

I'm trying to help a friend out with connecting from a wireless router. Thought it would be an easy fix--but not what I expected.

Problem is not getting to the internet. I've tried plugging a wired connection and wireless but no internet. "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" and when I click on Diagnose Connection Problems - "Windows found a problem that cannot be repaired automatically"
It has worked before but not recently. I've updated the wireless card software, ran anti-spyware/antivirus programs, ran winsockfix but nothing works.

It's a vista Home Premium O/S-32 bit, HP Pavillion 6000,

So if you guys can provide some info, I'd greatly appreciate it. Here is the IPconfig and ping information. Also, when I do nslookups I do get data returned.

Hello everyone, I need some major help.

My computer was recently attacked with spyware and possibly viruses. I ran a few spyare removal programs and it looks like it fixed and cleaned everything up. BUT, I'm afraid some got deleted or changed on accident in the process...

My computer is old -- it doesn't even have a ethernet port. So a while back, I installed a wireless adapter (?) in my desktop and also purchased a D-Link wireless router. This is how I connect to the internet.

Everything was fine until I was hit with all this spyware. Like I said, the spyware is gone, but my computer might have been messed up in the process because I can't seem to connect to the internet anymore.,,

It looks like my IP address has changed. Before, it was 192.168.... But now, it's 169.254... I don't know why or how it changed. But even if I change it to 192.168..., it still doesn't connect.

I read on this forum that I should try Start > Run > CMD....etc. BUT, every time I try to run CMD, I get an error saying "Another program is currently using this file." And it won't let me do anything.

So then I tried to see what's running under my task manager. But when I try to CTL/ALT/DELETE, the task manager doesn't even open! Even if I right-click on the task bar and choose "task manager," it won't open. What gives??

Any suggestions? I know I should get a new computer soon, but I need to connect to the internet! I'm... Read more

I am able to connect to a wireless router/network with internet access as a guest user of the router. The guest user of the router is passworded. I have been using an older laptop running Vista and have had no problems. I just purchased a new Toshiba Satellite L755 with Windows 7 to replace the Vista machine. I am able to connect to the same router/network with the new laptop but it will not connect to the internet. I get Local Only With No Internet. I have set both machines side by side to compare settings and the Vista machine will connect completely but the Windows 7 will not. I also have never gotten any window pop up that allows me to enter the guest password as it did in Vista. Hope you can help. Thanks

Hi - I have spent hours trying to figure this out with firefox and Apple to no avail. I have a home network with two computers. The cable modem goes to an Apple Airport extreme. To the Airport I have connected a USB hard drive, my desktop computer and an ethernet printer. Wirelessly I have connected a printer and my laptop.

I have been having problems with the wireless print router for a while. My recent problem is that my Toshiba Satalite laptop connects to the network with no problems, but I cannot connect to the internet. I have cleared the dns cache, I have reset the Airport, I have changed and re-change the security (wpa to wep and back again), I even discovered that I can ping google through the CMD.

I was connected to the internet without problems until two days ago, unexplicably, my laptop just wouldn't connect. The only thing I did was plug the new ethernet printer into the Airport. The desktop connected to the printer without trouble. I think it is just coincidence since I have tried unplugging the printer and still have the same issue.

My desktop is running XP pro and the laptop is running XP media. Help!

The default gateway (router IP address) should be present on all PCs that what gets you the internet access.
Under the XP boxes under Internet Protocol TCP/IP click on properties the click on advance and make sure the metric is set to router gateway address IP.

Hi, I really hope someone can help me.

I have a wireless internet connection at home and was using the Internet fine up until a couple of days ago. Now, whenever I try to view a webpage I get the "page cannot be displayed" error page, my messenger services cannot log on either so I'm assuming I have no Internet connection. However, all the other computers and the laptop in the network are working fine (hence me being able to post this). My computer says that it has a "Very Good" connection to the network and I don't see anything wrong. I have tried rebooting several times, repairing the connection, disconnecting and reconnecting but nothing seems to work.

Please does someone know what could possibly have happened? It is very frustrating having to borrow someone elses computer just to view my emails etc.

Thanks in advance, sammantha

hi, posting for the first time here. i have a toshiba satellite laptop, and in my house we are using a billion wireless router, i am running windows vista, and the network appears available, and i am able to connect to it fine, but once connected i am unable to get onto the internet, a problem which does not occur for all others using the network. In the house we have a spare BT homehub wireless modem (we use the billion though as speeds are MUCH faster), and i was able to get onto the internet fine with that (until this week, where sometimes the network isnt even being recognised using this modem, and other times is recognised but wont let me onto it), during the time that the homehub was working, i was able to connect using that, then disconnect it, reconnect the billion modem, and then the internet would work on my laptop... very confusing! but that meant having to do this every time i switched my laptop on, and now that the homehub is playing up for me then things are even more difficult and i am having to revert to the good old ethernet cable (which works perfectly with either modem by the way).

Any help you can give me on this matter would be GREATLY appreciated as it is very annoying, if you need any more details from me feel free to ask, ive seen a lot of great responses in these forums and hope you can help me with my problem as you've helped countless others (and sorry for the long post).

Thanx in advance,

I can connect to a wireless net work with an "excellent" signal, but it will not let me get on the internet. If I plug the ethernet cable into the router, then it lets me get online. I think that something on the laptop is not set up right, but I don't know what it could be. My room-mate is able to get onto the internet with a connection to the same wireless network/router. Please help me, I don't know anything about this stuff. Thanks

How exactly do you have your wireless setup? What type of encryption? Do you have the DNS servers specified, or taken from DHCP? Are you manually assigning an IP address, or are you getting it from the DHCP? Can you ping www.google.com?

A:Wireless Network Detected, but Internet Explorer Wont Connect to network in Win 7

Have you tried any other browsers? SeaMonkey is a good one to try if you don't have another. You can still keep IE as default and have SeaMonkey for backup for web pages that may not display correctly in IE or when you have access problems like you are having now. Being Mozilla-based, it uses a different rendering engine. For those web sites that support pipelining, you may also find that it is considerably faster.

Check your connection settings under Internet Options. In the LAN section, try toggling the "Automatically Detect Settings" option.

Hi, Have a problem there, Just reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows XP and WAS having problems having my Linksys 802B wireless card but now it finally detected.. just reinstalled the driver. Now another problem is.. when I double clciked INternet Exploroer, webpages dont load up. A box pops up tp ask if I want to workoffline or Connect. I click on COnnect, and the box then said " No connection to the internet is currently avaiable." The thing is that my wireless adapter is already connected to the DSL in perfect signal connections.

I then went to to Network COnnections folder, There are 3 icons, one says Incomming, the other 2 in the LAN or HighSpeed Internet section says 1394 Connection, and Wireless Network Connection Enabled. On the far left column, i clicked on Create a New Connection. I clicked the option of " Connect to the internet" , then "Setup my Connection Manually.". Then " Connect Using a broadband connection that is always on." .. because I dont need a login name and password. After clicking NEXT and Finished, ..nothing happened.. i clicked on IE again, and same thing pops up. I tried doing the 2nd option to let u enter the ID and password BUT disable the prompt to log in with a username and pw.. still dont work.
What gives? How do i fix this problem? Any help is appreciated. thnx.
