Carbon X1 stopped connecting with wireless printers

Q: Carbon X1 stopped connecting with wireless printers

I have Thinkpad X1 that uses Windows 7. It suddenly stopped being able to recognize wireless printers. I tried many times to reinstall software on two different printers and go through the set-up process. It will only connect by USB. It connects fine with the internet otherwise. Can anyone help?

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 2 computers, a Dell Inspiron laptop and a Dell 745 desktop, both running Windows XP, Service Pak 3. I also have 2 printers; an Epson Stylus Photo R200 and an HP: Officejet 6500 wireless. I have a Speedstream 5100 modem and a D-Link 802.11g/2.4 GHz wireless router.

Is it possible to connect the 2 printers and 2 computers to the modem and router? Are there splitter cords available that would allow me to make the proper connections?

I don't have my wireless connected at the moment because there were problems in the past with security. Could someone tell me what I would need in order to connect everything wirelessly?

I would also like to get a larger hard drive for my Dell 745 desktop. Right now I only have 1 GB memory and 80 GB hard drive, with 3.4 GHz processor (Pentium D). What brand of hard drive should I look for, and how many GB? Can I leave the 80GB in the tower along with the new, larger one? I have no idea what would be compatible with my system.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Any help I can get on this one will be much appreciated...

First off....the lap is running ME....the router is a Gnet IP104G Broadband Router with a card ...the connection is Cable.

As I do near or at the end of every month...I run a scandisk and defragg and usually her comp runs nice.

Well yesterday I did what I usually do and for some reason now it cant connect to the net.

Previously when things were running well...I did a copy and paste of all the screenshot settings and compared and it seems everything should work BUT it won't. Usually when it doesn't connect we just pull the power to the router, replug et voila...it works!

I know this wireless stuff isnt an exact science but "what now?" Any ideas?

I'm running Windows 2003 XT operating system and have had very few problems. But now my wlan connection doesn't seem to be working or works intermittenly. I have a Sony Vaio 2006 laptop.

It usually connects to my home wireless and my verizon mobile modem but in the last week nothing. Is there something I can do to get my wireless working again?
 

A:My wireless connection has just stopped connecting. what to do?

You can try and determine the device Brand and Model via Device Manager or downloading Everest Free Edition from: http://majorgeeks.com/download4181.html and then search for a driver for it. Download the driver and then from within Device Manager delete the current driver.

Reboot your system to allow everything to be cleaned up after the uninstall (sometimes this is required and sometimes not). Re-Install the driver with the software you downloaded earlier and see if that solves the issue. Otherwise there is the potential that your device is actually failing.

Hi there,
New to this Group and this resource. Hope someone can help.
Switched on m PC this morning (Core2Duo HP) and all was fine, connected to WiFi connection fine. About 45 mins later pc froze, had to restart and woudnt boot up saying boot error. Tried 5 times before it did finally come on.
When it did come on it would not connect to the wireless connection. The wireless link IS connected and strong, it just has 'No internet access', 'No network access' (as described in IPv4 and IPv6 Connectivity.
Also the Wireless Network Connection says it is an Unidentified network.

The schematic shows Tony-PC (This computer) --------graphic of a Bench with 'Unidentified network' below it -----------X---------Grey Globe-Internet.

Below that:
Two columns
Park Bench again - Unidentified network

Second Column:
Access Type: No Internet Access
Connections: Al Green bars - Wireless Network Connection (Name of conncction)

I have accessed the wireless connection on my cellphone and works perfectly. I have also connected to it with this laptop. But main PC won't connect... just like that, all of a sudden after those crashes or refusing to boot....

I have Avira AV installed but that seems to be displaying startup problems as well. Wont start up nor will Windows Defender ! (Not sure if related but all started same time)

Anyone have any suggestins any solutions ?

My new laptop came on Wednesday, the 9th. It was immediately able to connect to my wireless network I had recently established. (I also have a desktop connected to the same network.) Anyhow, today, Sunday the 13th my laptop connected as usual but when visitors arrived I pushed the on button to turn it off - I know better but wasn't thinking at the time. After the visitors left I came back to my laptop, turned it on and it will no longer connect to the wireless network! I troubleshooted all I could and the only way I could get on the internet with the laptop was to use an ethernet cable - even then it was hard but can be accomplished. But it is a laptop and I don't want to leave it in one place all the time! I have access to Costco's Concierge Service and phoned them. He had me do everything in the book so to speak for more than an hour and it remains the same - no wireless connection!
I am wondering if my turning it off the wrong way could cause this trouble? I have never worked with laptops before but used many desktops and, even though it is not recommended, turning them off using the on button in a pinch has never effected my computers in any way.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

The laptop specs: Dell Inspiron 17R with Intel Core i5-2450M 2.5 GHTz, 8 GB Ram. and a lot of other stuff!

A:New Laptop stopped connecting to wireless network

I do not know if turning it off that way was the cause of your connectivity issues, but as new as the computer is, you might want to consider restoring the operating system to the factory condition. Does it have a recovery partition on the hard drive?

Well, this isn't necessarily a request for help, but more of a forum to help anyone with similar issues resolve a problem.

I consider myself well above the average person for tech abilities -- however, I typically don't delve into the 'config' stuff on my computer (mainly because I know that I can really screw something up). With that said, here is what I had happen.

My Dell Inspiron D630 running Win XP SP3 suddenly stopped connecting to my home wireless network. It would connect at work (via wired connection), but just couldn't seem to find an IP address at my house. I tried multiple times, rebooted the modem, rebooted the computer, but to no avail.

Today I tried going in to do ipconfig /renew, hoping that would try to get an IP again. Didn't work. When I used that I got a "The RPC Server is unavailable" error. I started Googling to find an answer and came across this thread: http://forums.techguy.org/networking/736702-solved-rpc-server-unavailable.html?503retry=1

In this, the guy said that he went in and had to start a service because it hadn't started automatically. I happen to know that one of the items in the networking section deals with DCHP. When I went into Start--> Control Panel --> Administrative Tools (as directed in the above thread), I noticed that the DCHP service was not running.

Everything's been fine since August of 2009, but now suddenly none of my wireless computers can connect to my router. They generally see the network, but they are unable to connect. the repair function does not fix the problem.

Router is Linksys WRT54GS
Computers that can't connect to network wirelessly are running current version of XP

The router is out of Warranty. On the phone, Linksys tech support mainly just tries to hard-sell me a Wireless N-draft. If the problem is with the router, I'll replace it with a true Wireless-N of some kind.

This one's got me totally buffaloed.

I'm the IT Manager for a small consulting firm. Everyone travels, everyone has a laptop joined to the domain. Mostly Dell, but two of them are HP Envy M4s. One of those (originally Windows 8 Pro, now 8.1 Pro) has the weirdest printer issues. We have two shared printers in the office, an ancient Brother HL-5140 monochrome laser and a hotsy-totsy Konica Minolta C35 multifunction color laser. The latter has direct network connectivity but both are shared through host computers (that's what the leasing company recommended).

Of course these were installed on the problematic M4, along with some printers she has at home. For the last several months (maybe since the 8.1 upgrade, I'm not sure) when she brings the computer back into the office the office printers don't work. They have to be uninstalled and reinstalled. But it gets weirder. For the lat month or so when she goes home she cannot connect to her wireless network if those printers are installed. So right now they are not installed. Which is a major PITA for her at work.

I've reinstalled several times, and wiped the system clean of the drivers and everything, and nothing has any effect. The other M4 has no issues.

Help?

Good morning/afternoon/evening.
I have three computers hooked up to a Linksys router. I would like to hook up a printer so any of the three can print to that printer. What is the best way to set up such a system? Do I need to have one computer (the server) dedicated to that task? (this will undoubtedly show my total ignorance of networks!).

Thank you very much,
stuarth
 

A:Connecting printers to a home network

The real question is... what printer do you have or intend on using?

There are a few possiblities here, but it is printer dependent...

1. If the printer has a network card in it.. You can set it up on your network and create a network printer on each computer to allow them to print to that specific printer. This, without having it hooked to a PC.

2. If your printer does not have a network card in it, then you could consider purchasing a print server. This is a small box that your printer hooks up to and it has another hook up for a network cable. Kind of emulates number 1 above.

3. Is to have the printer hooked to a computer, SHARE it on that computer. Then you will have to install a network printer on each of the other computers so they can print to it. Downfall here is... the computer where the printer is directly attached, has to be turned on when you intend to print.

The cheapest way would be 3. However, it can be a pain at times. If you don't want to pay out good money for a printer that has a network card in it, or can be installed in it... then I would go with number 2. This will eliminate the extra PC on when printing.

The print servers do not cost that much, around $60.00. However, going this way, you have to make 100% SURE that your printer is compatible with the print server. If the information on the print server does not specify your printer, then don't buy it. It most likely will not work with it.

Does that help a little?

Hey all, I have been stirring up a storm in my room the past couple of days trying to figure this one out.

I picked up these 2 babies online and they work great....individually. basically, i have developed an application and need to (eventually )setup 8 thermal receipt printers that run off of one laptop, and are each uniquely identifiable and are triggered by a user device.

For example, user device 1 triggers printer 1, user device 2 triggers printer 2 etc etc

So i connect the printers by ethernet to a router and my laptop connects to the router via wifi. It detects both but the printers have a problem working together. I have set a static IP, but when trying to configure through the provided driver software the second printer over-rides the computers IP address in its setup application, and then creates one out of thin air.

I'm lost, hungry and tired....it's been 2 long days....help a brother out will ya

If you can't think of any ideas, please provide any alternate suggestions. Most importantly i only want one laptop computer.

I had to replace my Lenovo X1Carbon this month and I specifically ordered another on so I could continue to use my three OneLink Pro docking stations (one in each city where I work). To be safe, I checked compatibility by looking on the Lenovo site. https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/migr-4tpjf4When I unpacked the new laptop today, I found to my dismay that it doesn't accept the connector to the OneLink Pro. It has two USB-C ports instead. When I contacted Lenovo to see if they have any sort of adaptor, they said I should  get a USB-C dock or something called a Thunderbolt. I?m reluctant to spend between five and eight hundred dollars to trash and replace three perfectly good docks. Does anyone know of any way I could rescue some utility from my docking stations?

Hi, I have a 3rd gen X1 Carbon (without the LTE adapter) that was probably hacked. I want to examine the system without it being possible for the machine to connect to a nearby WiFi network and contacting a server controlled by a hacker. Could I disable the WiFi chip simply by unplugging the antenna, or would I have to remove the entire WiFi card? (I don't want to remove the WiFi card unless absolutely necessary in case it might trigger the malware to be deleted - which would complicate the task of figuring out things like if it really was hacked and what the malware was designed to do.

Here's the breakdown: Working:F1 (speaker on/off)F2 (vol down)F3 (vol up)F5 (screen bright -)F6 (screen bright +)Stopped Working:F4 (mic on/off)F7 (project)F8 (wifi on/off)F9 (settings)F10 (search)F11 (open apps?)F12 (all apps?)This happened once before and a driver/BIOS update fixed it, but this time, nothing seems to fix it. I am an Inside Track candidate for Windows updates, and the keys themselves work (the normal Fn keys work). Searching Google and the Forums comes up empty. Specs: Product: 20FQ001VUSBIOS: N1FET63W 1.37Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Version 1803 Build 17134.167Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad Version 9.0.2.2 All updates completed (Lenovo and Windows). Any thoughts/ideas?Thanks!-Matt

HI there I am having a peculiar problem. The right-side USB port (the one next to the Ethernet port) of my 3rd Gen X1 Carbon (model 20BT) has stopped working. Windows reports two USB controllers, and Linux does the same. The ethernet port works as expected. I even replaced the USB/RJ45 system card and the problem persists: The Ethernet port works, the USB port does not. No peripheral is being recognised (I have tried a wireless mouse, a usb flash drive and a Yubikey) and no power seems to be available from the port.  I was thinking that if there was some issue with the motherboard then one of the USB host chips would not be recognised, but this does not seem to be the case. I am now thnking whether it would be worth it to replace the motherbaord or just purchase another (used) machine. The warranty has expired. Any ideas? Thank you! Frixos

Hi frixosk, Does it mean that the one on the Left-side still works? If yes, you may consider to work with a handy USB hub like this.

Hi guys, I recently got hold of my new X1 carbon and decided to do a thorough firmware update with vantage. When the trackpoint utility firmware 1.0.0.3 was installed, my laptop flashed with an installation failure notice and rebooted. After that, the trackpoint as well as the mouse above the touchpad no longer worked. I tried the advanced setting in control panel, but the entire trackpoint configuration option was blacked out. Does anybody experience similar issues with this update and have any suggestions on how to do a home fix for this? I have been making do with the touchpad and a bluetooth mouse, but it does not feel very "thinkpad" this way.....

Thought this was resolved some time ago.  Please report back if it helps - or doesn't.

Recently I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Pro, before this I have no clue if the webcam was working but since trying to use the Camera app I have noticed there is no feed.I then went looking around, having installed (all auto-update recommended) applications for the laptop from the Lenovo support and drivers page. I noticed that there was no Intergrated Camera driver in the list, I then decided to install it manually. I was then met with a "Can't find the device, Abort install!"I have attempted to use FN+F6 to enable and disable the camera, even with restarts in between. I have also gone through the BIOS and enabled/disabled the camera to see if it would then detect it and nothing has worked.Has anyone else had an issue like this and been able to resolve it?

Hope im asking the right people lol

What kind of "machines" are you referring to? Are these simple printers or high-end copy machines? I'm not sure what's available for the former, and there may be no option for the latter.

I have 2 daughters going to college this fall and sharing a dorm room. They each have their own laptop.

I am thinking about getting a wireless printer so they don't have to plug/unplug to use it. I have a few questions since I have no experience with wireless except for internet. I am looking at getting a HP - Photosmart Wireless Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner.

Do wireless printers work well overall?

Do they work through a router? The campus is wireless - so if their dorm is wireless, would they still need a router or would it pick up the school's network?

Thanks in advance for all replies.
