Q: wireless network detected, not detected, detected and so on.

I'm running 2 pc's on windos xp pro, I have a d-link wireless N router, and i just can't use my pc which is connected through the wireless part of the router.

It shows the signal Very strong strength, then it doesn't see anything at all, and it keeps happening over and over. I've tried changing the wireless channel, nothing.
The other PC has an USB wireless adapter.
PS: i've tried restarting the router/moden, to no avail.

Anyone got any ideas ?

Preferred Solution: wireless network detected, not detected, detected and so on.

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.)

My Linksys calved today, and I purchased an Airport Express Base station, as I have a couple of Macs as well as Windows boxes. the macs are fine, the Sony Vaio running WinXP Pro SP2 cannot detect the network. It is set up frm within the Mac desktop, thus no domain or workgroup. The network is named, and has WEP2 enabled. I tried disabling the security, but no go. My wireless card on the Sony simply can't see it at all. It isn't the card, I was able to use the same laptop in an airport earlier today and had no trouble connecting to the network there. Any answers appreciated. Thanks.

A:wireless network not detected

Does your card support the WEP2? Chances are it doesn't and it just happens that the wi-fi at the airport wasn't using that type of encryption.

I have an acer laptop that Ia previously was able to connect to my home wireless network. It no longer connects.

There is a wireless adapter on board Orinoco wireless adapter 3.3 volt and a plug wireless adapter Orinoco wireless adapter 5.0 volt both installed and working. In addition we have tried two other wireless adapters that work on other machines and appear to be working fine, but without any luck.

I found a post on this forum and tried the solution contained in it. They are as follows.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

WZC probably refers to the service thats loaded with windows xp. go to "services.msc"(Start->RUN->services.msc) and go to the end of the list and you'll see this "Wireless Zero Configuration" . make sure its enabled and working fine. Also try stopping the said service and restarting it.

do try disabling both your LAn and WLAN icons in 'network connections' and enabling them again. see what happens. try ipconfig after this.

Do you see that small switch for Wi-Fi in front side of your comp??

I have a laptop and 2 computers. I have a router that links up with wireless to one of the computers and the laptop.

Now the problem I am facing is that the laptop has stopped detecting my wireless network (it detects other however). It can't be that my wireless is not working as my other computer is working fine with wireless to the same network.

What could be preventing my laptop from detecting my wireless?

(Windows XP)

A:Wireless not detected for ONE network

When you have the window open that lists the networks, click "Change advanced settings" on the left, go to the second tab and remove all the networks there (WARNING: YOU WILL NEED TO RE-ENTER THE KEYS OF ANY NETWORKS YOU REMOVE AFTER YOU ATTEMPT TO RECONNECT TO THEM).

Apply/OK -> Reboot.

It sounds like something is timing out.  It is hard to be sure without swapping either the drive or the MB.  You might go into the BIOS and select diagnostic mode for boot.  That would do a memory test and it might slow things down enough to mask the problem

Today Norton Antivirus began to block threats from Trojan.Zeroaccess.B, Trojan.Gen, Trojan.Gen.2, and Trojan.Zeroaccess.C. I have been prompted to do a manual removal of Trojan.Zeroaccess!inf4 from c:\windows\system32\services.exe. Additionally, Bitcoinminer is being repeatedly detected, blocked and quarantined. I'm not sure if Norton is having a problem deleting/quarantining Bitcoinminer, or if it is actually being downloaded over and over. I suspect that these two problems are related, as they started at the same time.

From what I gather, the fix seems to be quite complicated and I would appreciate some help.

My system is running 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium w/ SP 1. Looking at similar threads, it looks like I'll need to use a flash drive to run removal tools. I do not currently have a flash drive on hand, but I do have an 4 GB SD card. Will that be a sufficient replacement?

Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

That's what the system said, in DOS, on the black screen. Of course, I had my mouse and keyboard unplugged at the time, because I had just unplugged everything to move the computer.

Anyways, I plugged the keyboard and mouse in, restarted the computer, and everything started normally.

My question is, what is with this error? Vista can't boot up if I don't have a keyboard and mouse plugged in? It's not a big deal, but it seems like very odd behavior.

A:Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

This has nothing to do with Vista whatsoever. As you said it showed up on the black screen with white text, which is the boot screen. The computer hasnt even started loading windows yet. The fatal eror occurs because you have no input device. The computer recognises this, and given that they are important, it puts a warning up that there is no connection.
It is completely normal, really, and whatever OS you have, its going to do the same thing.

I did a stupid thing yesterday. I downloaded an icon pack APK file on my computer to upload to my mobile. Anyway, the thing is, when I double clicked on it, BlueStacks (Android Emulator) opened up, and Avast started giving me lots of warnings about BlueStacks accessing Trojan URLs (it blocked them of course).
Now, the thing is: I scanned the APK file both in Malware Bytes Anti Malware and Avast (and even Malware Bytes Anti Rootkit), and it showed no virus or malware found. But when I try to attach the the same APK file as a Gmail attachment (which I read on the net detects viruses, which is why I tried it), Gmail gives me a "Virus found" error.
So, my question is how come such reliable antivirus / anti-malware programs like MBAM and Avast didn't detect the virus but Gmail did? And more importantly, (though I have deleted the APK file in question from my computer) is my computer safe? Or has a rootkit / trojan been installed?

A:Virus not detected in Avast & MBAM, but detected when I upload the file to Gmail

hey i'm not very good with computers and having problems understanding this one.

my HP pvilion entertainment pc is less than a year old but has recently decided it can't detect the wireless card.

i have done lots to try and find it and try and connect to the wireless in some way. the wireless adapter switch is still working for bluetooth wireless access but not internet.

i wonder if somehow it's gotten broken or whether anyone can tell me if this is a common thing as it seems to have been deleted completly from my computer. it wont show up under network connections and i can't seem to find it anywhere else.
any help would be gratefully recieved as i'd hate to have to get this fixed at a hefty price if it's solveable.

i've tried hp forums for help, but this one got reccomended to me
thank you

I have a a D-Link DIR-635 wireless router. the router is connected directly to my husbands computer which is a dell and that's all i know, running windows XP. I have a sony vaio laptop running vista.

i had been able to detect the wireless router in my connections window without event for at least a year, and for some reason a few months ago, it simply disappeared. i was able to delete the connection from my wireless list and then by connecting directing to the router via ethernet cable, used the auto set up to reset the connection, it found the wireless connection first time and all was fine. last month, the wireless connection disappeared again, i repeated the previous process, but it took like four or five tries before i was able to get the connection to show up in my wireless networks. today, i am completely unable to get the wireless connection back. i have tried mannually adding it and have tried the wizard ('set up a wireless router or access point' while the ethernet cable is plugged in). the wiz gives me an error message that says, 'windows detected network hardware but cannot configure it automatically.' no matter how many times i try, i get the same error.

another note, the wireless router is definitely broadcasting because my husband is able to see it and connect to it from his laptop.

this seems ridiculous to me... anyone?

I upgraded to 8.1 and now my wireless connectivity is lost. I have installed the latest driver model for my device but still it is not working

A:Wireless network adapter not detected

I have a pretty good idea of what the problem might be, this is becoming a common problem with Windows 8 or 8.1, in fact I've already fixed this exact problem with the steps below.

First run the sfc /scannow command, use an elevated command prompt for this, use option 2 in the link below.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

It's required to reboot the machine after the scan completes which can take awhile depending on the amount of file corruption. It might seem to stop for some time, just let it finish then reboot the machine.

The wireless adaptor may starting working again after this scan but the store corruption is still there.

After reboot open the elevated command prompt again and run the command > Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth it might mention that it's fixed something. Reboot again and run sfc /scannow again, it should come up clean this time.

This should fix the store corruption which caused the problem and the wireless NIC should now be working.

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite L655-149 laptop.

There seems to be a problem with the wifi. Normally, when the ethernet cable is not connected it would show the available wireless networks (like any other laptop).

But now it does not detect any wireless networks including my home network and I am sitting right beside the router.
I tried pressing Fn+F8(buttons to enable or disable the wifi) but that function isnt working anymore.
Is there any other way to turn on the wifi?..or is it something wrong with the driver and the wireless LAN card in my laptop?
Thank You

I have had this problem now for a couple of weeks, can't seem to find a solution, even after trying all sorts of things I have seen on the web.

I can not seem to get the wireless internet to work on my computer. The problem started a while ago and since then I've actually formatted my hard drive and reloaded Windows XP and everything else back onto my computer.

I ahve tried connecting to the wireless at home and at work and neither is working. My computer can see the networks when but can not connect to them. I used to have no problem connecting to my home network, I have not ever connected tot he one at work, just thought I'd try it when I couldn't get it to work at home.

So things I have tried, I'm probably forgetting some stuff...
1. Updating my LAN driver (I've tried numerous ones and the one that works best is the one that came with my windows XP)

2. Ran both Spybot and AVG to check on spyware/malware/virus and there was not a single thing on either one.

3. Tried many combinations of setup configurations with my home wireless set up. It is a password protected hookup that I have never had problems with before.

So in seeing several posts on here I have the following information from my CMD

Windows IP Configuration
Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : gateway-ta06zkr
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :

A:Wireless Network detected but can't connect

I have a laptop computer that we are having trouble connecting to a wireless network router. The laptop sees the wireless network we are trying to connect to but when it tries to make the connection it fails. I have tried the connection in both the Windows Network Connections and in the Dell’s Management Console. The first attempt was with using windows and at first it appeared to connect as the status changed to “Acquiring IP Address” but that failed, causing the connection to fail. Every time after that, every attempt failed in both Windows and Dell’s console. I attempted again today and did get it to connect once but could not get it to connect again after that. The laptop is a Dell Latitude E6400 XFR that has a Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN wireless network card which we are trying to connect to a Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router with a WPA-PSK (WPA-Personal on the Router) Network Authentication and AES Data Encryption. No IP address is indicated after doing ipconfig /all and just states No Media Connection, I believe. I have also done a sc query wzcsvc and found it to be running. I’ve also tried disabling the Windows Zero Configuration to no avail. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to install driver for TP Link : TL-WN821N, but it says that Wireless network adapter is not detected. When I try to install the driver via Device manager, it says that no driver was found.

Would appreciate any help!

A:Wireless Network adapter is not detected

One thought: newer PCs have USB 3 ports. Do not use these for the wireless adapter. Find a USB 2.0 port to use.

Do you hear the USB device connected sound when you plug the adapter in?

Give this a try:
Remove any previous adapter software installation
Remove the adapter
Optional: (If available, Restore Windows to a date before the first install attempt.)
Turn the PC off. Wait one minute.
Turn the PC on > wait until desktop fully loads
Plug in the adapter > wait for it to be detected > "Windows can't find driver..." > OK
Now install driver software.

Good evening, everyone!

Since yesterday evening, my Toshiba Satellite Laptop (L505D-ES5025) hasn't been able to register my wireless network, though it registered it perfectly fine yesterday morning. I can only detect the local area connection, and can only connect to the internet via the ethernet cable (which is what I'm using right now).

Even when I go to the "Change Adapter Settings" from Control Panel, it won't detect the wireless network that I use. The other computers/laptops in the house work, but this one can't regiester to it, even though it's the closest to the router. When I troubleshoot the problem, the only solution is to use the ethernet cable, but I can't depend on it since the whole point of using a wireless connection is to go wireless.

I have tried the Control Panel solution of going to the device manager, but I can't find the wireless network from there. This Toshiba computer also doesn't have a physical WLAN button; rather hot keys are used (though when I use this, it doesn't anyways).

I also tried to find the drivers for it to update, but those won't either update, or they do update but nothing happens. In other words, I can't do anything because my laptop can't find ANY networks whatsoever except for the one that is found after I connect it to the ethernet cable.

My OS is Windows 7, 64-bit Home Premium.

I have an HP dv6000. It wasn't working, so I replaced the motherboard and it booted up perfectly fine with the exception of one thing...the wireless card. Here is the error I am getting: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. When the wireless card is in, it won't boot, it will just display that message. However, when I remove the wireless card it boots up perfectly fine straight into Vista. The wireless card is the stock card that came with the laptop so I am unsure of exactly what might be causing the issue. I had read that updating the BIOS might help, but I am not sure. Any suggestions would be great.

The network shows up in the network list and when i click connect and type in the password it tries to connect but than it fails to connect. when i try to repair the connection i get the message " windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: connecting to the wireless network"

any ideas are appreciated, thanks in advance

A:wireless network detected but wont connect

Are you suggesting...
1) the modem was changed
2) the router is the wireless hub and was not changed
3) a computer which previously connected to the network no longer connects
Would be surprising if the wireless hub was not changed and the workstation was not changed. You can see the wireless network so it's not the little switch that turns of the wireless card. The other likely culprit that either the password or the encryption type got changed while trying to fix this.
You could try going the the start menu, selecting "run" then typing "eventvwr" and see if there are any messages in the "system log" which give you a clue.

I should have came to this conclusion sooner, but my current re-installation of Windows has some problems that I haven't had the time to address until now. What I need, though, is access to the repair function on the disk. However, herein lies my problem...

When I boot up, media in the drive or no media, bios does not show the drive in its list. I can still open and close the drive as if nothing is wrong there, but I cannot "boot from CD". I've reset my bios back to defaults and while the drive appeared on IDE Channel 1 in the settings, it still would not recognize ANY media while booting up.

I have the latest version of my bios. I have also tried changing cables. The drive is on an IDE channel by itself.

Once my system boots into Windows, however, the drive is recognized and acts normally as if nothing happened in bios. Media operates fine. I have checked the event viewer, and there are no entries anywhere that states my optical drive has been experiencing problems, and yes, in fact it operates just like it always does.

Can anyone help me get my bios and cdrom back together again? The problem is I just do not know where to start to solve this. I wish I could say how long this has been happening, but I really don't know as of today. There have been no hardware changes in the past three months, and my current installation and configuration began back in late April.

Thanks for your time...

A:CD/DVDROM drive - not detected by bios, detected by Windows?

What is the boot sequence in the bios? should be CD or optical drive first, then Hard Drive or IDE-0 second if you want to boot from the cd-drive. Many computer manufacturers set the computer to automatically boot off of the hard drive by default so setting the factory defaults might not be what you are looking for. Look for the screen that has the boot order or sequence and just change it, exit and save settings and restart the computer with the boot cd in the drive. I hope that helps.

Hi guys,

I bought a bluetooth dongle off of amazon so I could use my bluetooth headset with my comp. Once plugged in it installs driver version 6.1.7601.17889 from microsoft and there are no yellow '?'s. When I look for devices it sees my headset no probs but will not connect, which it does instantly with phones / tablets etc.

A very detailed search has brought me to the conclusion that it's a problem with the bluetooth driver, not the headset. Unfortunately there are no identifiers on the dongle itself but device manager seems to think it's:

Device type: Bluetooth Radios
Manufacturer: Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd

Is there anyway I can detect exactly the chipset in the dongle and get the correct drivers installed? Or am I barking up the wrong tree completely?

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.

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.

So, I wanted to upgrade my wifi+bluetooth card because of no BT 4.0 support in the original card. Therefore i purchased an Intel AC7260 card. The problem is that after installing it in the laptop, it just displays the message "104-Unsupported wireless network device detected", and tells me to replace the card and reboot.  The thing is, that if I choose "disable wireless LAN" in the BIOS, the computer boots just fine, and I am able to use the bluetooth part of the card, but not the Wifi. Is there any easy fix to this? I know that it is possible to modify the BIOS, to accept the new card ID, and I've found a guide: http://www.richud.com/HP-Pavilion-104-Bios-Fix/ , but I would rather it just worked.  I have the latest BIOS, and running Windows 8.1 64bit. Another solution could be to simply purchase a new pci card which is supported, but how do I know if the card is supported? I've checked the hardware maintenence guide, and found the chips which are supported, but i need some hints about which will work. For example will this work?: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Broadcom-BCM4313-BCM94313HMGB-BT4-0-Wifi-Card-600370-001-For-HP-Acer-ASUS-...

A:G580 2689 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected

Hi numb,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
One guideline in following the whitelist is the FRU TAG.
Even if you find a identical model of the WIFI Card you need to make sure it has the Lenovo FRU tag same as the FRU number in maintenance Manual

Hope this helps

My problem is similar to this one: http://forums.techguy.org/networking/586274-wireless-network-detected-but-internet.html

I was able to get the internet on my laptop last night after installing a Belkin wireless card. The problems arose when I installed the latest version of IE. A version I have of Firefox also will not connect to the internet.

I have followed the instructions given in the above problem, such as resetting the Winsock etc. I also typed the following command in CMD: IPCONFIG/ALL and it brought up the following, in case this might be able to shed some light on what is causing the problem..

I just finished installing ubuntu and it's not detecting my Linksys Wireless B networking card. I'm not sure what the exact model number is on it... anybody here know how I could check that to and see if there's a driver I can download?


A:Just installed ubuntu Linux; wireless network card not detected...

I had the same problem .. no driver for my CREATIVE USB wireless adapter in uBuntu

We can't blame LinuX but we blame the manufactures of the device.

They don't program a driver for a linux BoX

all what I can advice you is to buy a Wireless to Wired bridge

so it makes a wireless works as a LAN ( detected as a LAN but working as WLAN!)

google search for it .. and you may post some intersting results here, I am pretty interested!

Hello, I recently bought a Probook 450 G4, i7 7500U with 1 TO HDD and 8GB RAM. I wanted to upgrade it with an SSD so I bought a ADATA Premier SP550 2280 M.2 SSD. The BIOS detected it normally, but windows installer wouldn't find it. I removed the HDD and tried again, same issue. I then installed windows 10 on the HDD to try and format the SSD in windows and surprise! no sign of the SSD nowhere, not in browser nor in Disk Managment or Diskpart. Apparently HP disabled the M.2 port in BIOS as mentioned here ( https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/M-2-SSD-Upgrade/m-p/5580822#M3... ) I updated the BIOS the the latest version provided by HP for my laptop model and the same issue is still ongoing, this is a 120$ SSD that I can't use nor return as the problem is the HP product not ADATA's SSD! The simplest solution is in the hands of HP, just release a BIOS update with the M.2 port ENABLED ! why brag about having a M.2 port in your products and then DISABLE it ?! Any insights please ? Many Thanks. PS: I started a new thread yesterday and it is no longer available now ! did HP remove it or what ? it was there for a while and I'm sure! what a shame !

I went to connect today and my dialup connection was gone.  I thought, well, I'll recreate it....but Windows would not let me and said (in the Connect to a Network box):  "Windows could not detect a dialup modem", "Is the modem connected?", "is the modem switched on?"
It is an internal modem.
I went to Device Manager, and there it is as usual, "This device is working properly".

A:Dialup modem detected, but not detected, huh?

Doing some searching gave me this solution:
It is caused by certain services being shut off for unknown reasons.... definitely unknown in my case (??).
Delete or rename the following folder:
(the folder, rtbackup)
However, it has some kind of protection and doesn't allow itself to be so changed.  I did it from a DOS boot disk with NTFS4DOS.
Everything is working.

I've been working on this off and on for a week or 2 - searching the net hi and lo, including this site, and can't come up w/anything, so I'm resorting to posting here...

I've just built this PC (configuration should be in sig), and installed Win98SE on it.

I have a SoundBlaster PCI 128 CT 4700 (w/ES1370 chip) that I bought off a friend. He didn't have the original CD w/drivers.

I've downloaded SEVERAL different "updated" drivers from various sources (including Creative), but nothing seems to work.

Here's what happens:

Start PC
Windows sees new hardware and starts installing drivers. About the same time another window pops up:

Creative Sound Blaster PCI128 Hardware not detected. The driver will be disabled.

Press OK, this reveals the window in the bg:

System Settings Change
To finish setting up your new hardware, you must restart your computer. Do you want to restart your computer now?

Click Yes...

1)cmos/whatever screens flash, then
2)Windows98 lite blue startup screen

I picked up a computer off craiglist was thoroughly enjoying my gtx geforce 680 ( https://boston.craigslist.org/sob/sys/6239989909.html ) when it "crashed" about 6 hours after purchase.When I rebooted I received the "no hard disk detected" message. Upon launching bios setup the hard drive is listed with details as being attached to its corresponding sata port. I am trying to determine if my hard drive is broken or if it needs remounting or some other sort of procedure.

The hard drive is a slightly dated WD Carver 1 TB SATA internal drive interacting with an asus motherboard. I did notice the boot order for drives had been rearranged putting an external and an optical disk drive in position 1 and 2 for boot directories. I disabled both the external and optical disc and selected the WD sata drive as the first preference for booting. Still I am getting the same error. I read somewhere that if the bios is recognized in setup but is still not recognized for booting that I may need to run a 32bit diagnostic. The forum I saw the diagnostic post mentioned on was in reference to a dell machine. I don't really know what this is or if it exists on my ASUS mother board.

In short: how can I tell If my hard drive needs replacement?

If Bios recognizing the drive is sign of life how can I get my computer to recognize this drive again?

are there any programs I could download on my laptop and put on my external that could be used to boot and run diagnostics on t... Read more

My laptop has suddenly started running CHKDSK during startup. After it completes and finishes booting I go to Properties > Tools > Error Checking of my C drive and click ?Check?. It says errors were found on this drive and to repair drive now to prevent data loss. I click to run it, the system reboots, I see the prompt to cancel CHKDSK by pressing any key, let it run, the screen remains blank with just the little spinning dots. It finishes (in less than a minute, which is faster than it usually takes) and loads to desktop. I check the C drive properties again and it still says there are errors and to repair.

Running CHKDSK from CMD prompt I get ?Windows has scanned the file system and found no problems. No further action is required.? Running a 3rd-party disk checker (Disk Doctor, Tune-Up Utilities) also reports no errors. Yet the properties dialog continues to warn that there are errors.

I can?t be certain when this started. Just noticed this yesterday when I booted up (I don?t usually stick around and watch the computer boot). Windows has all the latest updates/patches. This is an HP ENVY laptop that came with Windows 10 pre-installed.

Anyone have any ideas?

Win XP Home
Duron 600? (shouldn't matter)
ESS Modem

OK - When I look at Device Manager, the modem shows up. When I go to Properties / Diagnostic / Query Modem, it is fine.

When I run Juno, it is able to successfully retrieve e-mail (it just dials and connects).

I CANNOT connect to the web - Juno says that there is no modem installed. Upon further investigation, when I go to Connections and try to add a new connection, I am not allowed a choice of using a modem.

So - Device Manager and Juno E-mail both think that the modem works fine. Connection Wizard and Juno WWW both think that no modem exists.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the modem, to no avail. Oh, and yes, it used to work, and I can't get the user to remember a specific time when it stopped working.

Suggestions? Thanks in advance!

My Kingston Data
Traveller 8 GB drive (1 yr old) is not getting detected on my new PC (2 weeks old). It was working perfectly on my old pc, and is working fine on my office PC, frnd's PC, Philips DVD player, Sony HiFi audio system.

My mobo is Biostar TA785GE 128M, OS is win xP Pro 32 bit. The drive is detected on all USB ports of mobo, but as soon as I start any data transfer, it crashes and i get error that data cannnot be transfered.

The Disk Management (My Computer - Manage) shows the drive as healthy, but after I start any file transfer, in a few seconds, it reads "Unreadable". Sometimes, the drive letter also goes missing. In brief, the drive is displayed in My Computer till any file transfer is initiated. As soon as any file trnsfr starts, I get error that file transfer is not complete and the drive goes missing.

My frnd's UsB drive (2 GB), and my old 256 mb drive, both work and files are transferred which removes the doubt that there is some prob in USB ports. As the 8gb pen drive works on other PCs and devices, so i guess the drive is okay. I ran HDtune for it, and it has no bad sectors. That leaves my OS as the culprit (I assume). Looks like there is some problem in the way XP maps the USB drive.

I've tried many things, and here is my observation:

* Changed drive letter to other letters, but to no avail. Changed drive letter to a working USB drive letter, but failure again.
* Formatted many times, but data transfe... Read more

I have a belkin wireless g pci and it is not detected in one of my computers and a couple more I had but works fine in all the others. I work on computers by the way. Its not detected at all in device manager or add new hardware. I called belkin and they couldn't figure it out so they sent me a replacement so now I have 2 but still not detected. The computer I have is a x brand with asus txp4 mobo. I jumpered the p1 to run at 250mhz, 64mb ram. I thought it might be the os so I took off windows 2000 pro and installed 98se but didn't work. I tried to update the bios and play around with the bios settings and switching pci slots. I can't figure it out. Hopefully you can help.

A:wireless pci not detected

Is any card detected in one of those problem slots? Have you tried switching a working card into such a slot and putting the wireless card in a known working slot?

I'm mostly just guessing, but think it's a problem with the slot(s), not the OS and not the card.

Most laptops have either a switch or a function key sequence to enable the wireless. I think that's where you need to look.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:


Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

On my Windows 7 laptop, I have created a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network, but I couldn't detect it from my Windows 8.1 phone. I created another one on my friend's laptop, but neither myself, her nor another friend of us
were able to detect it from their Android phones and my Windows phone.

How can I get it working successfully?

Additional info: I haven't received any error on both laptops. I have admin rights. I'm connected to the internet wire. WLAN AutoConfig service is automatic and started.

A:Wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network is not detected!

Hi Seaoar ,
We may misunderstand the ad-hoc feature ,it only supports the computer to computer .Here is a link for reference :
Set up a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network
To create a wifi and connect the phone ,we may need to take the steps according to the link I have posted in my third answer.It is used to create a virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter .
Best regards

MeipoXu, I appreciate your concern and let me correct you.

In the 1st link it says "An ad hoc network is a temporary connection  between computers  and devices used for a specific purpose". So it should not be only computers. Plus Iphone connects to it why not Windows phone?

2nd, why do you insist to post me a line about Android? I only tried connecting my friends' Android devices for tesing purposes. My own phone is Windows.

3rd I found a way to create a connection from cmd and it worked successfully without any problem. here is the command:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=<network name> key=<passkey>
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
netsh wlan stop hostednetwork

I hope other will benefit from my discovery.

About an hour ago something weird happened that I have never seen before.
Zone Alarm detected a new private network, IP=
I didn't know what to do. My normal network is Verizon DSL 198.168 etc.
Alert asked if to place it in trusted or internet zone. I did not want to place it anywhere. There was no help. ZA replaced my Verizon network line with this new thing. I could not do much really until I responded to the alert. There was no option to leave things alone.

I tried Google to see what it's all about, but could not connect to the internet. The little connectivity icon at the bottom of the screen said something about limited connection. True.

I shut down the computer. But it came back with the same thing. At that point I told ZA to shut off all internet access.
I shut down computer again, then router, then the modem.
I turned things back on in reverse sequence, and now everything is OK, Verizon is back, and, as you can see, I can get to the internet.

I haven't yet ran Ad-aware, Spybot SandD, PestPatrol to see what damage occured while I was scratching my head.

What does one do in a situation such as this when there is no option to do nothing?

A:New Network detected

Zone Alarm detected a new private network, IP= is the ip address that Microsft Windows assigns to your network interfaces when it cant get an IP address through DHCP. This is probably nothing to worry about.What probably happened was verizon was having a problem at the time and you did not receive an ip address from them, so microsoft assigned you one in the 169 range. Zone alarm saw this as a new network. Then when verizon came live again and you were issued a new ip address, it went back to normal

Hello, first thank you for clicking on the topic and taking the time to (hopefully) read my post. Recently after Installing PC Tools Firewall Plus I noticed that I received this notification:Is this something I should worry about? I tried running a deep scan with a-squared Free but it came up with nothing. If you require any other information please let me know.Edit: I'm using Vista, and have a wireless connection. To my knowledge I should not be involved in any network unless it's the router but that IP doesn't seem like the IP for my router (at least to me) .

Pardon if I just sound really computer illiterate, but I've recently switched from Windows XP to Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.. and can't connect to the internet.

I've got an HP Firebird 802, even sent it back to the company only to be told they had no problems connecting. I plugged in the ethernet cable directly into our wireless modem/router, but it still tells me that the network cable is unplugged. I've turned on Network Discovery, and still nothing. Just a lovely red X over my network status.

I have a Westell 327w wireless modem/router, and the other computers that are on it are running XP.

My NIC is an nVidia Nforce 10/100/1000 mbps ethernet.

Is my problem with my wireless router or perhaps the cable? I', wondering if the 64bit vista is my problem. Any help would really be lovely.

Thanks in advance.

A:No Network Detected

Hi there, Just a lovely red X over my network status shows that its either your Ethernet cable or the network port is bad. However, check in device manager that you have the network drivers installed. Call your cable company to change the network cable and/or cable modem before replacing any hardware.
