Solved: Wireless Networks Issue

Q: Solved: Wireless Networks Issue

Hi all,

Having some trouble connecting to my own wireless network. For some reason my laptop will not connect to my own network which has the strongest overall signal, yet easily connects to the neighbor's unsecured networks. The other laptop in my home can connect to it okay, and it appears to work when using a local area connection.

I checked the network settings and it looks to be configured correctly, any ideas?

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.)

I have recently had a problem with my computer showing no wireless networks. There are other computers that can log on without a problem (obviously, one which I am using).

It is well noteworthy to mention that a few days ago there was an accidental download that initiated. Trendmicro caught it and says the last virus/malware found is: TROJ_DROPPER from C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventlog.dll.

(I thought trendmicro caught it, and Prevx cleaned my system, but it may be contributing to the problem or has done damage)

Since then, at school, I have noticed my computer was connected to the internet (I could still surf the web) but would say that it was NOT connected. When I went home, my computer would say it detected a wireless network, however, when I clicked on it it would say "no wireless network detected"

I tried a few things including:

1.Uninstalling the Network adaptor
Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN and letting it reinstall on start-up (No luck)

2.running HostXpert

3.and a few other things like, checking to make sure some necessary functions are started such as the wireless zero config. (et al).Click to expand...

I just bought a new computer, with WIN 7 on it and I can't get my wireless adapter to hook up with my network. I have all the latest drivers so that isn't the issue,and the adapter I'm using is a Netgear WN111v2, and the router is an apple airport, so I though it might be a compatibly issue, but from what my error message said on it was;

I currently have a Qualcom Wireless AC Card in my Yoga 920. When I change wifi networks, I don't always get the internet going right away (we have 2 networks at home and several different networks in the office). I would need to right click on the wifi icon in the task bar and click on troubleshoot, then wait for it to fix itself. This happens probably 90% of the time when I change networks (ie Home network, then when at the office, I connect to the Work network and have to perform the troubleshoot to get the internet going then vice versa when back home. Or even changing between our 2 different Home networks - as in from different ISPs and not just changing between 2.4 and 5ghz connection). Also, is there something wrong with Chrome for the 920? When I change networks, and get the internet going (as in the wifi icon property says that there is internet and the yellow triangle exclamation is not present anymore), google chrome does not automatically connect to the internet and load pages. Edge, on the other hand, does not have issues upon gaining internet connection after the troubleshoot. For reference, I have a custom built desktop. I have an Intel AC 8265 in it, and it does not have this issue when switching between our home networks and chrome does not any issue as well. So yeah, I have two issues. Any ideas?

Hey to TSG!!

I need help in this one. My Bluetooth used to capture others (with no password) wireless networks but if I do extensive use on it, it will not work. For one wireless network, it gets connected but nothing appears and for another, it doesnt get connected at all though it used to. They all are in low signal but they used to work fine!

I dont know what to do right now. Is my bluetooth screwed up? I used to download large files (more than 500 mb) before but now it doesnt get connected.

My internet has been working fine until a few minutes ago, when my connection just vanished.
I went to try and reconnect but my Belkin N Wireless USB adapter could not find any wireless networks to connect to.
While searching for a connection, the light starts blinking like it is searching, but then it says that it can't find any. Also, when I plug in the adapter, a popup comes up saying that there are wireless networks nearby, but when I click it there are still none.

I've tried reinstalling drivers but still nothing. I'm not sure what else to try because I'm afraid I might mess something up even more.
If you need any more information just ask.
Please help me to fix this problem. Thanks.

I have Toshiba laptop and Win 7. It is brand new laptop and original windows. I tried to install AWUS036H and it was successful but unfortunately adapter doesn't detect any networks. It happened with my old laptop with Win 7(Acer) and I had to reinstall windows fresh and it worked. But I wouldn't like to do it again here. As you may see on picture internal adapter has X in corner and it is working but RTL8187 doesn't, it just says Enabled and nothing happens. No networks detecting. In device manager everything is fine, no yellow icons. Also it is not detected by my ipconfig/all command. The same thing happens in safe mode

Adapter is not broken, it is working on linux. This is image from win 8.1 but it happens on my Win 7

What driver is currently installed?

Try this

Download the latest ar956x driver from here:

Release: 2014-07-22 [July '14]
OS: Windows 7 32/64bit
Status: WHQL
File: win7- (2585 KB)

Unzip the package and note the location
Uninstall the driver from the device in Dev mgr, remove software if presented (checkbox or prompt)
then update the driver from within Dev mgr using the unzipped inf file

Some reports on the Qualcom board indicate that you might have success with an earlier version, but I only see then on the site I linked.

Try the newest first , then the 255 (270 was the one the poster on Qualcom complained about)

Maybe the Toshiba site has a version that works. My method is to install the base or original driver from the PC OEM support page and work up if the peripheral board driver doesn't help solve the issue.

Please fill in your SevenForums specs so members can be more help - All I know is that you have a Toshiba laptop with Win7 on it.

Please don't waste your time typing the information in a post - place it in your system specs - then any time you create a thread, people can look at your machine specs in the lower left hand corner of any post.

I've had my Dell M6500 with Windows 7 for 1.5 years now. My network adapter drivers are all up to date. I've never had any issue connecting to all kinds of wireless---airports, coffee shops, home, etc. The past weekend I was out of town and connected to the wifi at a McDonald's, no problems. When I arrived back home, my wireless connections list contained nothing but a Verizon mobile broadband connection. I have never used mobile broadband. Here you can download the video of what I see exactly: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/8308782/wireless.zip (1.18MB)

Other various related details:
-When I troubleshoot, I am told to activate my mobile broadband connection.
-I have tried doing a system restore to a point well before my visit to McDonald's. No luck.
-I am not able to return to that McDonald's and try to reconnect to their wifi to see if still works.
-I have not tried connecting to another wifi network besides the one in my house since the McDonald's visit.
-I am still able to connect to the internet using an ethernet cable between my computer and cable modem.
-I am still able to connect to the wireless router using mobile devices and other laptops.

Thanks a lot for your help.

I reloaded Windows XP service pack 3 on a Dell D610 and everything worked but it would not see any wireless networks, though I have 6 I can see on my laptop. It was not the driver or the wireless configuration, I'm pretty fluent in networking I had done everything from a network card perspective and then I googled. I think I found the answer on this forum, but I don't remember. I should have written down the solution, but I didn't and now I am googling in vain I can't remember how I worded the search.

The answer had me enable and start a service with in Windows XP and I do not remember which service it was, I only that it was not wireless zero configuration I would have remember that since it's an easy association. Whatever it was it had worked like a charm. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

By far the simplest fix is to use Windows System Restore to roll back Windows to a point in time when your computer was functioning correctly. It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

If that doesn't help, try restoring an earlier system image or backup.

Can't figure out what changed on my Win XP wireless network connections, but I used to be able to see about 5 wireless networks in the neighborhood, including mine. Now it only shows mine. Not that I can connect to any of the others (don't have the security codes), but I find it strange that it used to show all of them, but all but my own have suddenly disappeared. Did I check some setting somewhere (that I can't find now) saying to show only the strongest connection?

Doubt this has anything to do with the router, but in case, it's a D-Link DIR-601.

I have a laptop which connects to the network fine using a cable. (Samsung r60y Plus. Windows Vista with all updates)
If I unplug the cable the network icon in the tray displays a red cross & changes to the wireless icon, then back to the wired icon with the red cross & switches back & forth between the 2 icons
If I hover over the icon, it says network connections available.
If I then click connect to a network, a box appears stating that Windows cannot find any additional networks.
No wireless networks are shown.

I have tried resetting the network connections using Microsoft fixit.

There are no additional entries in the windows hosts file

I have uninstalled/reinstalled the drivers.

wlan is turned on in services.
Wireless is turned on on the pc.

In network connections the wireless network is disconnected, If I try to enable, I am shown the Windows cannot find any additional networks box

ipconfig shows as media disconnected - autoconfig enabled - dhcp enabled - & it has a mac address.

I have tried using a usb wireless adaptor & disabling the onboard card. This gives exactly the same results so I am thinking that it must be a prob somewhere within the operating system settings.

I have run sfc /scannow.

Hello TSG, it's been a while.

I have a Dell m2626u that used to run vista and I switched to Windows 7 professional. Everything has been fine for the year and a half I've had the laptop until yesterday. I shut the computer down to take with me to got outside the house and go work at Starbucks, when i got there it could not find any wireless connections. I tried the WiFi on my phone and it easily picked up a network.

I tried these things while there:
Switching the wireless adapter on/off through the switch
Turning wireless on/off through Function+F2
Disabling/enabling the wireless adapter in Network Connections

I couldn't waste time with it just then so I just tethered off my phone while I was there and decided to check with my home network. When I got home same issue, no wireless networks detected. Windows troubleshooting gets me nothing.

hello there folks

my problem centres around home networking, desktop + 1 notebook computers.

I use a D-link DSL-G604T modem/router in my home. Prompted by reading an article in a magazine about online security I went to check my network. When I 'set-up' the router when I purchased it, I just let Windows XP do its stuff (maybe a mistake?).
On checking the wireless network settings on the computers it tells me that the network has been configured for 'OPEN' access?

So, folks, how do I change this to a 'SECURE' network??

I've read through the manual a few times now, but just seem to be getting myself more and more confused. I've tried getting answers from the D-link website, but upto now no luck, so its time to turn to the experts!!

Hi there,

I am using a Belkin Wireless Router, and just spent the last 2 hours on the phone with the tech person trying to fix the connection to my cable modem. The connection between the router-modem-wired computer now seems to be working fine.

However, from my laptop, I cannot detect any wireless networks. I just came back from China, and the computer detected wireless networks there, but now doesn't recognize any at home. Usually there are 3-4 networks in the area.

My wireless switch is ON. I checked device manager, and 1394 Net Adapter #2 was disabled; I enabled it. Everything else (including Wireless 2200BG Network Connection) seems to be enabled and working fine.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Hello everyone,

When I right click my Wireless Network Connection from inside Network Connections, selecting "View Available Connections" does nothing and neither does clicking properties. I have verified that the "zero wireless configuration" service is running and wireless adapter enabled (It is a laptop.) I ran Malware Bytes AntiMarware but it did not find anything. ..However it was not an updated version. I cant update it as there are no connection to the internet.

This problem has been going on for months. There are no system restore points to a date prior to when this first started. Id also rather not do a reinstall; dont have the CDs to install the OEM package.

Has anyone ever seen this before? Ive searched the internet but have not found a solution.

Also, I am uncertain if this is related, but there are three icons in the control panel without a name. Ive used the shortcut trick to obtain that they should be firewall.cpl and netsetup.cpl (the last two icons point to this file.) I can run the CPLs from another directoy ... cannot run them from within the control panel though..

Any help is greatly appreciated

Okay, here's the deal. A fiend/client has two separate wireless networks. One upstairs and one downstairs. The networks are on separate floors with one computer that is on the upstairs network located downstairs. They want to share the downstairs printer over both networks.

The printer is shareable over the upstairs network but not the downstairs.

They have a netgear wireless print server on the downstairs printer. I assumed that the print server should be able to work with both networks, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Could I have setup the server incorrectly? It doesn't show up on the downstairs network. I even tried to search for it by IP address.

Oh, the printer is a heavy duty scanner/printer/copier, a Gestetner, not a simple HP.

Yeah so my bro and I have two different internet connections for two different providers so that we can both game at the same time without having latency issues. We both want to have our internet in different rooms which both don't have any cable coaxial, or Ethernet. The DSL modem can't be moved. So the only option is wireless!

So each connection is running into a different modem. connection 1 is hooked-up to a DLINK DIR-615 wireless N router. The other connection is hook into an older Linksys WRT54G router. Which is then wirelessly routed to two different Linksys WGA54G game adapters. There is a Linksys WRE54G range expander that is hooked up to the d-link router, but it does not cause any problems because I've already unpluged it the the problem still persisted. The problem is that no matter what channel #1-11; the internet cuts out from the game adapters every 3-5 seconds. However the game adapter hooked-up to the DLink router (wirelessly) doesn't seem to have a problem unless you break that connection and try to connect to the linksys router and then reconnect to the D-link router. But the game adapter connected to the linksys router has problems all the time.

I'm going to try upgrading the firmware to begin with, but I highly doubt that its going to matter. And then I'm outta ideas to try. plz help thx

As of yesterday, my connection to my work's wireless network was fine.

Last night, I installed driver software for my network card for my Ubuntu OS (dual-boot machine). Ubuntu and W7 are on separate partitions; I am not running Ubuntu inside of Windows.

This morning when I came into work and booted into windows, it did not connect to the network. I have already updated the driver software through device manager (I already had the most current driver installed) and have downloaded the correct drivers from Dell's website.

I have also done a system restore to prior to last night's Ubuntu driver update. And that didn't work. At this point, I am connected via cable, but if I remove it, my wireless card will not see our wireless network.

I have tried to manually create our network through the "Set up a new connection or network" with the correct SSID and security code, but that did not work either.

How could my work on the Ubuntu side have affected the performance of my network card or settings on my Windows 7 side?

How do I fix this so that I can connect to a wireless network in Windows?

Thanks in advance,

I'm having a bit of trouble with my laptop's wireless internet connection.

Hi folks. My laptop has suddenly stopped connecting wirelessly. Just fine with ethernet though. My Wireless adapter is enabled and showing fine in Device Manager and has the latest driver.

When I click "View Available Wireless Networks" the dozen or so networks that use to appear are gone. I power cycled and reset my modem with no luck.

One of the users on my network has an unusual problem. He's using win 7 Pro (64 bit). On Friday he told me about this.
Apparantly, when he's plugged in, the LAN thinks he's on a wireless network called "Guest Access". Guest access has internet only and no access to our server.
When he uses his wireless, he can use other wireless networks but is similarly crippled. He only just noticed because he's been working exclusively on his laptop.
I removed the network cards and drivers through Control panel, but that didn't do it. I also removed all the company wireless networks off of his laptop though the wireless management.
However, the LAN still thinks it's on wireless Guest Access.

Guest Accss is only available via wireless - not LAN, so I'm not sure how this happened nor how to get it straightened out.

I use my wireless network at home, perfectly fine. Sometimes I'll go hardwired if I'm doing a lot of uploading.

Recently went on a trip and stayed in 3 different hotels. Hotel 1, I was able to connect my laptop to their wireless, no problem. When I got to the second hotel, my laptop would not detect the wireless. So I pulled out my other laptop and volia... wireless. So its clearly an issue with my first laptop. I've since gotten back home and attempted to connect to my own wireless... and bam! nothing.

I do NOT have a wireless switch on my laptop anywhere, so its not a case of accidently disabling the wireless. For my HP to disable, I have to go to the wireless network connection and right click to disable or enable. Its currently enabled. The adaper says its working correctly.

When I run ipconfig my IP address (when wired) is

When I check my event logs I do see this message: Dhcp-Client Event ID: 1002

The IP address lease for the Network Card with network address 001F16551386 has been denied by the DHCP server (The DHCP Server sent a DHCPNACK message).

In my device manager under Network Adapters, i have:

Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter
Realtek RTL8102/8103 Family PCI-E FE NIC

I have NOT attempted to unistall my wifi adapert as of yet.

I feel like the IP address didnt release after I disconnected from the hotel's wifi and now i'm stuck with this IP that my network do... Read more

So my HD cable went bad on my Latitude D420. Replaced and now laptop reads HD but I had no wireless connection icon on bottom right. So I checked Wireless Zero and all was ok, I checked Devices and all are installed and say working properly. There are NO yellow question marks in Devices. My other computers in the same house and same area pick up the wireless router and networks. The laptop does not have an on/off wireless switch. There is no wireless network showing up under Networks in the control panel. I am at a loss. All I did was replace the HD cable and reinstall the network drivers. Please help!

Hi :)

I'm on a HP Compaq 6715s running Windows XP Pro, SP3. I've been using this laptop since September- it was in its 'original' state as it was bought in 07, but never used. Everything was fine with it until yesterday, when -after a restart- I couldn't connect to the my network anymore. At first the system forgot it even had a wireless function, but that was fairly easily resolved. Now the problem is that when I boot it up, I get a popup saying that there are wireless networks detected, but when I click on it, it searches for a bit and says that there are no networks in range.

These are things I know for a fact:

-My wireless adapter is ON (100%, yes, I've checked).
-My router is working fine. My phone can connect, so can another laptop in the house.
-Even if my router wasn't (which it is), there are at least 10 other networks around here.
-I can connect via LAN.

Things I've tried already (that I can remember):

-Windows Zero Configuration (I think that's what it's called), turned on
-Tried uninstalling/letting it reinstall on reboot; no effect
-Turning on any relevant services (services.msc), but I'm no expert on this
-Turning it off and on again (woo...)
-Yelling at it in frustration

Also just to add, I can't do a system restore as I had it turned off (accidentally), it's on now, but as I noticed after the problem occurred, no point using it.

Hello everyone, this is my first post so apologies in advance if I post it in the wrong section or accidentally break some sort of rule.

So this is my problem, the wireless networks on my laptop(Toshiba Sattelite A305-S6857) are not working. I guess I'll start from the beginning, my hard drive recently died, so I bought a new one, installed it in my laptop and used my system restore cd to restore the laptop to factory settings. Everything looked like it was going fine until it came to installing the drivers to my built in wifi. The drivers did not install correctly and I got a "digital signature not found" message. I used command prompt to disable the need for digital signatures using the "bcdedit /set nointegritychecks ON" command. I downloaded and reinstalled the drivers, but this did not fix my problem.

This is when I figured that my built in wifi was malfunctioning so I bought a usb wireless adapter(ASUS USB N-53), installed the drivers on the cd that came with it, but that didn't work either. Just to make sure I wasn't just extremly unlucky and received a defective device I tested it on another laptop. (Another laptop in the Toshiba A305 series running Vista) and it worked just fine, so the problem has to be with my laptop. I've looked at threads made by people who are having similar problems and tried some of the solutions posted in these threads like uninstalling and reinstalling drivers. System restoring the laptop(3 times sa... Read more

I am a newcommer to this site so please bear with me if I get things wrong!
I have read numerous postings on this and ather sites about the Atheros AR9285 not being able to see wireless networks - and guess what I have the same problem!
My laptop is an HP CQ61-312SA upgraded to 4GB of ram, and running Windows 7 Home Premium, I have tried everything I can find on this and other forum sites with no luck at all, including updating drivers, making sure Wlan is started etc and I have downloaded programs like Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and Insider = both of which show absolutely nothing.
I have one other problem that might indicate a software problem - on the odd occasion when my computer does try to connect to a wireless network it resets to a blue scree which states that it is doing a 'physical memorey dump' and then restarts.
My Atheros card has worked perfectly for 2 years, but I managed to purchase another it case it was faulty - with the same results. I also upgraded the memory in case of a memory fault.
Rolling back drivers and using system restore does not work and ipconfig/all gives identical readouts to others with this problem.
Finally 'Network Connections' shows that the adapter is enabled, but 'Network Diagnostics' reports 'There might be a problem with the driver' - I have downloaded several drivers from HP with no success.

Hi all. I can't connect to any wireless networks - because I can't detect them anymore. The wireless button is on but no networks appear in the Connect to a Network box. I have disabled/re-enabled the device driver and rebooted a few times but it still won't work.

I can connect with ethernet ok.
Does anyone have any suggestions please?!

The problem is that I am unable from my laptop to see or connect to wireless networks which I know are there. This is so even after doing a fair amount of research in these forums and taking various corrective steps which have not solved the issue.

The laptop is very old – almost exactly 7 years. It is an IBM Think Pad Model(Type) 2897-B4U running Windows XP SP3 Build 2600.

There is a built-in wireless adapter: Intel PRO / wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter.

Initially (2004) it worked fine. Over the years though, something happened to make it behave strangely. At one point I had it set up to connect to a particular wireless network using WEP with a certain key. It began not showing that this network was available even though I knew it was. This did not bother me because it continued actually connecting to the wireless network it said wasn’t there.

At another point I bought a plug-in adapter – An 11a/b/g Wireless Card bus Adapter. This had no effect on the issue.

Eventually the wireless quit working altogether – either adapter. However for a very long time I didn’t care since I hardly ever travelled with it, and the wired connection worked fine.

Now, however, things have changed and I anticipate wanting to do a fair amount of travel with this machine.

Steps Taken
1. Checked to see that the “wireless switch” was on. Did some research to discover that this should be revealed by (Fn + F5) on my model Think Pad. However, pressing these keys gave some m... Read more

So I recently put in a new hard drive on my laptop and installed XP sp3. I installed the wlan driver via HP's website. The driver appeared in Device Manager and was said to be enabled and working. And it was, because Network Stumbler was able to find networks. But Wireless Zero Configuration couldn't find any, so I couldn't connect to wifi. Then I went to the Windows update site and applied a bunch of updates, one of which was for my wlan driver. I was hoping one of the other 100+ applied to WZC. After rebooting, WZC found my network and connected just fine. I thought problem solved. But then after rebooting again, it stopped working. When Windows loads, the wireless icon says 'Acquiring network address' forever. It says the SSID and signal strength (Excellent) but can't acquire address, and when I view the list of available wireless networks, it's empty (empty after refreshing as well). So it seems to know the network is there but it says no networks are in range. Just like before, NetStumbler finds the networks (if only it could also connect to networks so I wouldn't need WZC at all...). My laptop's wireless button is on, wlan is on, my BIOS isn't preventing wireless connections, I don't have any AV or software firewall installed. I'm out of ideas.
