Laptop is the only device that cannot connect to wireless network

Q: Laptop is the only device that cannot connect to wireless network

Hello all,

My laptop is the only device that is unable to connect to the wireless internet in my new house. There are at least two other computers and three other phones (including mine) that have no problems connecting to the network. My laptop is a Dell XPS M1530 running on Windows Vista. The wireless router is a Cisco Linksys Model No: WRT310N.

I have never had a problem connecting to any wireless networks in the past, but when I try to connect to this new network it fails every time. After the first two minutes it says "Connecting to network taking longer than usual" and then it says "Connection failed" because the network timed out.

I have Norton Antivirus, and have disabled the both the Norton and Windows firewalls. And I tried to find a driver to download, but I couldn't find any that were compatible with my computer and the router.

I have run out of options and am close to just buying a new router. I would appreciate any help you all are able to provide.

Thank you in advanced!!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Laptop is the only device that cannot connect to wireless network

are you paying a subscription to norton ?

can you connect to the router by cable- and does it workok

whats the model of the wireless adapter - should be in device manager - see below

we have seen issues with a particular adapter and vista like this - AR5007(EG) and a driver update often resolves it

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Remove the wireless security
Is your wireless security enabled?
if so - log into the router and remove the wireless security - now see if it will connect.
if it does - log back into the router and try with the wireless security enabled again

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need will need to have NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.
On windows 8 - (i do not have windows 8) but, it would appear that, When you first try to run, you may get a message that .net framework is needed, and included in that message is a link to download/install.

Run the program

A user guide is available here http://www.xirrus.com/cdn/pdf/Xirrus-Wi-Fi-inspectorguide-1-2-1-RevB-6.aspx

post a screen shot of the program running.
if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information.

post which SSID name is yours, its located in the list, under network "Adapter Name" (1st column)
Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

I recently upgraded my wireless router from D-Link DIR-615 to D-Link DIR-685. Before the changeover, all of my devices were connecting to the router, although I had several problems with dropped connections, etc. The devices in use were:
- Desktop computer
- Laptop computer
- All-in-one touchscreen computer
- Netbook
- iPhone (original model)
- HP TouchPad tablet
- Sony Blu-Ray player
- Two internet radios (Aluratek and Livio)
- Wii

ALL of these devices were connected wirelessly to the network. When I set up the new router, I used a different network name/SSID, but kept the same security key/password. All of the router settings were kept the same (e.g., WPA-2, etc.). After the new router was up and running, every single one of the devices listed above connected (after an initial setup with the new network name, of course) EXCEPT the All-in-one/touchscreen computer. I've tried over and over, and it refuses to accept the security key/password. (The desktop, laptop, and touchscreen are all running Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.)

After doing some research, I tried some suggested solutions, but nothing seems to work. Nothing on the problem computer has changed since it was last connected to the old router. I checked the "Properties" of the network device on both the Desktop (which has no problems connecting) and the Touchscreen, and they are identical: WPA-2, AES, etc. And I'm 100% positive I'm entering the security key correctly. I've rebooted the... Read more

I have a friend's laptop (Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4040) that she recently got and I can't get the wifi on this thing to work. The built-in wifi card shows fine in Device Manager, but, if I attempt to use it in a network, I get a vague error about driver issues. She got a USB wifi adapter, as well, and the same thing is happening with it. I've installed the drivers from the Toshiba website and made sure they were up to date with Windows for the built-in card and used the CD that came with the on networks wifi adapter to install that driver. Neither adapter shows up in ipconfig /all, either.

Might anyone know where to go next? I could reinstall Windows, but I fear there's something simpler I'm missing.

A:Wireless card(s) show in Device Manager but cannot connect to network

Welcome to Seven Forums,

I'd recommend for you to boot in Safe Mode with Networking by restarting the laptop, continue tapping F8 then select this option. Disable any AV or Security programs, go to Device Manager uninstall the Wi-Fi adapter(s), then reinstall the drivers again.

An update will be nice.

Hi everyone.

This past weekend I went out of town and took my Windows 7 laptop with me -- since I returned home, it has been unable to connect to my wireless network. Other devices in my home connect to the network just fine, and the problem laptop has always been fine until now. My network card is an Atheros AR9285, and I'm attempting to connect to a Medialink router with WPA password protection and AES encryption.

My wireless network icon in the task bar has a yellow sign with an exclamation point in it. It says "No Internet access."

I have tried:

-rebooting the computer
-unplugging and restarting the modem and router
-going to the command prompt and renewing my IP address with the command IPCONFIG/RENEW

None of this works.

Like I said, all other devices in my house connect to the wireless network with no problem. It's just this one laptop. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
 

A:Windows 7 laptop with Atheros AR9285 network card can't connect to wireless network

Three things to try ...

If you have McAfee please see the sticky thread at the top of this (Networking) forum.

Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

Revert to a System Restore Point before the weekend.

Hi,
I've recently purchased a new router Linksys WRT120N. I was successfull conecting the router to the modem and setting up the router. My friend has an iphone and he was able to connect to the wireless network.
However, I cannot connect my laptop to the network. My wireless switch is not disabled. I can see the network but I can't connect to it! I keep adding the network details it just doesn't work. I figured since my friend is able to connect to it with his iphone then the problem is in my laptop.
My network adapters are:
Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
There are no yellow exclamation or interrogation marks in the device manager.
I also tried resetting to installation defaults using:
netsh int ip reset reset.log
netsh winsock reset catalog
Both commands were successfull, I restarted the laptop and still nothing

So this is my ipconfig/all output:

The building I'm staying in has wi-fi connection. I can use my iPhone to connect to the wireless network there fine. But for some reason I am not able to do so with my laptop.

When I click on the Wireless Network option on my laptop it will show the names of all wireless networks that are in range, but when I click on my building's network name to connect, there will just be a window pop-up saying it is "Waiting for the Wireless Network" for a while, and then just disappear without anything happening and the laptop would not be connected to the network.

I tried clicking on the nearby buildings' networks where I could receive the signals in my room and they all can be connected fine. Just only the one of my building that does not work with my laptop.

My laptop is pretty old but I can use it to connect to wi-fi anywhere I've been traveling so far. Normally once I turn the wireless network on it will search and connect to available networks it could find automatically. But in this building, even though my laptop could find the network and the status is set to "Automatic", nothing would happen and seems there's no way to make it connect.

The fact that I can use my phone to connect to the building's network, and that my laptop can connect to any other networks beside this one, seems there is something in particular here that makes my laptop not being able to connect to just this network of my building.

My laptop won't connect to the wireless internet connection in my house, even though it will connect to any other wireless network and all other phones and computer seem to connect to this network fine. It just says the connection is local only. Every once in a while it will connect for a reason I don't know, but when I try it again the next day, it won't work. However, the laptop will connect with the ethernet cable.

The wireless provider, TalkTalk, have said I might need to try installing or reconfiguring Wireless 0. I googled this and followed the instructions to set the WLAN autoconfig and wired autoconfig to automatic, but that hasn't fixed it.

Any help mucjh appreciated!

All attempts to connect meets with the same error: "unable to connect to network" (preceded by the system hanging for a lengthy amount of time). Windows advises me to unplug the router and plug it back in, which obviously isn't an option.

Here are some screenshots, for whatever they might be worth: ImageShack? - Online Photo and Video Hosting

I'm not running any firewall but Windows Firewall.

This problem has only cropped up recently. At first, I was only having the problem with public wifi networks -- at home, using my own wireless router, there was no trouble. Then I deleted my home wireless profile as a troubleshooting procedure, and I can no longer connect to it, either.

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


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

Important points:
-My laptop cannot connect wirelessly to any network or computer
-My laptop can connect wired (ethernet cable) to the network
-My laptop can connect wirelessly using an external usb wireless adapter
-Other computers can connect wirelessly to the network
-I own an excellent quality Belkin N Wireless F5D8363-4

So far, I have tried (in any and every order):
-reinstalling drivers
-reinstalling the router modem itself
-made sure the passwords, mac address filtering and firewalls on the router are all disabled
-changed the channels on the router
-made sure the TCP/IP options are set to 'Obtain address automatically'
-disabled and re-enabled my network cards in the device manager
-reset the WINSOCK entries to installation defaults and reset IP/IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults
-entered into cmd the following - 'ftp localhost' which yielded a 'ftp: connect: connection refused'

I've just setup a new netgear router (DG834GV5) in my home. We have two laptops.

Problem is, my laptop, which we used to setup the network and router is fine and works. the other laptop can't find the network.

First off, it's ethernet port isn't working, so can't get wired internet.

Secondly the laptop does find networks, a lot of them, but not a single one is ours.

I've tried moving it around at different distances and nothings worked so far.

Went to the netgear guys the other day. Told us to turn on access control. That got both of us finding the network, but neither of us allowing to connect. I turned it off and both of us connected. Then this morning it stopped working again, and turning on access control didn't do anything apart from stop me connecting.

I sent them this info, but tbh, their english is crap and it takes them days to get back to you.

What do i do?

Laptop specs are:

Dell Latitude x1 (windows XP sp3) with an intel pro/wireless 2200BG network connection.
and i haven't hidden the ssid.

I have a wireless network, DI-614+ router. All was working fine, 'till I had a possible security breach (not sure if it was or not), which caused me to discover many new ways to tighten up my wireless connection. Unfortunately, somewheres along the way my laptop, a Fujitsu P1120 running XP Home, decided it didn't want to play any more. The other computer on the network, a PC running Windows 98, connects fine. The primary computer is wired to the router.

Here's what I've changed in the router config:

Yesterday:
Reduced the scope of my DHCP server, so it covers only the # of computers actually connecting.
Set static IPs for those three computers. Laptop's in the middle of the addys available.
Set router to only allow specific MAC addys. This worked fine yesterday.
Turned off SSID broadcasting. It was on 'cause the laptop seemed to need it originally, but yesterday it didn't - was working fine.

At this point, the laptop had no problem connecting to the network, or to the internet through it. I had made no changes to the laptop, just to the router config.

TODAY:

Changed my SSID and channel. This I think is where it all went wrong. But WHY? I've set them the same on the laptop, and by [diety] it SEES the wireless connection!
Reduced the signal strength. The laptop's less than a foot from the router, 'nuff said. it sees the connection as 100%.

Hello there. Been having issues with my wireless connection lately. The issue I am facing is when trying to connect to the wireless network in my house, it will constantly say connecting to the network, but never connects. If it doesnt do that is switches between connecting, limited acces and back to connecting to no end. My laptop is a DV7-6199US running Windows 7 64 bit. I have already tried rejoining the network, resarting the router itself, installed the latest networking drivers for my laptop and multiple system restarts. LAN connection works just fine to the router, but not wireless. Also to not is that there are 2 laptops and a desktop in the house that can connect to the router just fine.

A:Laptop won't connect to wireless network

Hi You have a couple of options as I see it please try these steps might help you to fix your issue. 1) Disconnect the Battery & Adapter then press & hold the power button on Notebook for 30 seconds then turn on the unit and check if the Wireless light turns on.               2) Go to Device manager then uninstall the wireless drivers from Network Adapter and restart the unit and check if the light turns on. 3) Try doing a system restore to the date where unit was working fine. 4) Please update the Bios & Wireless driver from HP website. 5) Click start in search type Recovery Manager then click on it select Yes on User access control then select I need immediate help then select Driver & application recovery select the wireless driver and install it then restart the unit. 6) If you are comfortable reseating the wireless card which will be on the back panel off your unit you could try this steps as well. If still you have the same issue then you need to call HP Technical support and get the part replaced.

Hello all.

Just today I moved my router and modem from my room, directly connected to my laptop, and brought it downstairs to connect to my new desktop which I'm on right now. The internet is working perfectly on here, but I went back up to discover my laptop will not connect to the same network. I've tried all the Windows solutions to no avail, and it just says Im connected with limited access so short of connect the laptop directly to the router again, which kind of defeats the purpose, I'm at a loss. Thanks for any help, and if you need any specs let me know.

Router: Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G
Computer: Dell Inspiro 1720
 

A:Laptop Will Not Connect to Wireless Network

Are you SURE you plugged the modem into the WAN port of the router, and now one of the LAN ports?

Let's see this from the working machine?
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

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

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I've had my wireless network around 3-4 weeks and after returning the first router to the shop as it was broke i now have lost connection on the networked laptop, i can still access the internet on my desktop computer but when i try to access the router page on the desktop PC at www.192.168.1.254/ it wont show the page.

i have done ipconfig and its showing my ip address as 192.168.1.1 default gateway is 192.168.1.254 the subnet is 255.255.255.0

when doing ipconfig on the laptop its showing 0.0.0.0 for all the above

how is it that im connecting to the internet no problem but the router page isnt showing this seems to me that the router is not working for some reason.

Hello all,

Here is a (hopefully) brief description of my problem.

I have recently moved and I brought my wireless router with me from my last home. The wireless router is a D-Link DIR-615 Wireless N Router. I reconfigured the router with a new connection name, password and security key. Upon trying to connect to the wireless network once it was fully reconfigured (no problems reconfiguring whatsoever), I was getting the "Windows was unable to connect" message. Since then, I have been able to connect successfully to the network with an iPod Touch, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and my roommate's laptop. I have tried resetting the router and modem with no success. I can see the wireless network in the available connections list and other networks in my area. I can also connect to the internet through this router manually using an ethernet cable (which I am doing now, to post this message). I submitted my computer's specs using the SysInfo app given at registration.

I will also include an IPCONFIG /ALL as I have seen this requested in other threads like this one. These are the results of that: (note: this was run while connected through the wireless router using an ethernet cable)

Well I was uploading some videos on Youtube on my laptop when the wireless connection just went off on its own. It could still detect my home wireless network but when I try to connect to it from the list of available networks it just stops halfway while trying to connect and refreshes the list again. When I tried right-clicking and the connection icon on the taskbar and choose repair, I always end up with "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following could not be completed: Connecting to the wireless network"

I don't think it has anything to do with the settings in the laptop because I get the same thing when I restored my C-drive to how it was 3 months ago using a back-up.

The house computer that uses the local area connection can still connect to the internet but I'm not sure whether any settings were changed here that would affect my laptop. I can't really restore the stuff here too to before my problem coz there's s lot of my dad's stuff are in here.

So is my problem because of something to do with the settings or did something in my laptop got spoilt @[email protected]?

I assume you've already tried rebooting the laptop. Next step would be to shut down all computers; unplug the router; plug in the router; boot computers. If still a problem please show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

Hi all,

I have a quick (?) question for you:

My step-son has just bought a "Siemens Amilo Pro" Laptop, it had been setup by the guy we bought it from when he brought it around, I was at work at the time and didn't know the password for our Wireless connection. When I got home I found the passkey and tried to connect the Laptop to the internet.

It just says "Low or No Connectivity" and cannot access the internet. I have checked that the passkey is correct (by going onto Belkin's site) and it is the generated key that I was given.

I had managed to set my second computer up in this way, but the laptop will not.

Anyone got any ideas?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Welcome to TSG:
Make and models of modem and router ?
Simple things to try first:
Change the wireless channel being used.1/6/11 in US.
Download any more current firmware for your router(if standalone router)
Reset the router to its default config.Hold the reset button in for at least 15seconds.
And just to set aside concerns about the wireless card,I would do this :

Let’s take a look at the status of the network adapters

Device manager:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?
4. Adapter status should be “working properly and enabled”

Hi,

I am having trouble connecting my girlfriends laptop to the internet using her Windows 7 laptop via a Dlink router with Virgin Media. The laptop previously had Windows Vista installed but I recently upgraded it to Windows 7. For about 2 weeks the laptop connected to the wireless router fine, but stopped working about 4 days ago for some unknown reason out of the blue.

We have tried various methods to fix it, including disabling the wireless network adapter and enabling it again, we have tried updating the driver for the adapter but we get a message saying that the driver currently installed is the latest driver. It also won't let me roll back to the previous driver as that option is faded out in the properties box.

I have took her laptop to my house today to try and connect it to my router (which is also with Virgin and is working fine on my computers at my house) and the laptop won't let me connect to the network and it keeps saying there are no network connections available. I understand that usually it displays a list of connections you can log on to, but the laptop is not finding any connections at all.

On Thursday we attempted to connect to the internet by plugging in the blue wire that came with the router and that works fine. It's just it will not connect wirelessly. What really baffles us with this problem is that it worked fine for a couple of weeks then suddenly stopped working. Could it be an update that was installed that has caused the problem perhap...

given that your wireless adapter is switched on and enabled in windows and in bios and ...at any time after this point you can stop if the wireless starts working again...

Disable any firewalls or antivirus apps that are installed.
Make sure you have the correct passkey for the network
Delete all wireless network properties from the manage wireless networks page and reenter your wep or wpa password if you have one.
Use windows to manage wireless network connections.
Uninstall any third party "wireless managers"
Reinstall windows
I'm sure others here can think of a few things that It haven't, but if you get to this point and it's still not working, it's possible there's a hardware failure

Hi there,

I am currently experiencing problems connecting to my Network with one of my laptops.
The main laptop I have connects fine, so does my xbox, my iPhone and other phones in the house to the WiFi.

If I open up Internet Explorer I get the error:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

I have the option to diagnose connection problems and when I click on that it says:
Windows cannot resolve the problem. Please contact your network administrator or Internet service provider.

If I go on Start, Connect to, then the network in use it says 'Windows cannot connect to 'Example'. Once again I try to diagnose the problem and I get the previous error message Windows cannot resolve the problem~~~
I'm guessing this could be the route of the problem; yesterday I had to remove the network on my main computer and add it again in order for me to get the WiFi on my new iPhone. I used the same network name and password though.

Thanks in advance for any replies, I am alright on computers but not with networking!

So i am at a loss....

Anyone any ideas?

A:Cannot connect to wireless home network any more with laptop

I personally would first check drivers for updates and make sure they're all working correctly.

You could also completely remove the wireless configuration that you have for the access point. Then re-add it.

If that doesn't fix the problem I would try a system restore if it was available.

Hi guys thanks for taking the time to check this out.

Basically I have a mates laptop that I have tried to get connected up to our wireless network. In the network there 4 laptops and one desktop, and apart from the laptop in question, connect fine to the router (netgear).

The laptop is an Advent 7099 (G335 Advent) with an Intel Pro 3945ABG wireless LAN network card,XP Media Center Operating system. When trying to connect up, it complains that it has Little or No Connectivity, and the connection status claims "This Problem Occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer"

According to Network Connection Details the IP Address has been set to 169.254.222.133, Subnet Mask 255.255.0.0,!

I have also checked whether the DHCP service is running and it is fine.
Also it had the same situation in Service Pack 2, and is now on Service pack 3!

If anyone could share some light on this would be very grateful! Thanks

long story short: my laptop's charger broke, so it has been sitting around for a while now, unused. before it broke, i could connect to the internet, no problem. also before it broke, my mothers desktop computer was the "main computer" or whatever for the wireless network. since then, her computer fried, so she just uses her desktop, and the router still sits at her desk. my moms laptop and dads laptop both connect to the internet, but mine won't. i've tried manually entering the IP/default gateway/etc, nothing works. it sees that the network "taylor" is available, usually above 85% signal strength, but it won't connect.

someone please help me. a friend just moved in with me and always wants to use my computer, so i'd really like to have my laptop up and running so he won't bother me anymore!
