Preferred Solution: windows was unable to connect to (network name)

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.)

Hello! First post here, probably won't be my last

Here's the situation... I'm trying to connect to my wireless network, but when I do, it simply says "Windows could not connect to (my network name)"
Then I go to troubleshooting, and I get to a loading screen that says "Detecting problems, looking for problems in adapter, resolving problems, ver... etc" and then another window pops up when that's done, that basically tells me to reset the adapter, wait 10 seconds, yada yada you know how that goes.

I reset my modem, and then press "Check to see if the problem is fixed."

Same loading screen comes up as the one I posted above.Then it comes to a screen that says "Windows could not resolve your wireless connectivity issue."
There is a backstory to this. Last weekend, my mom's computer crashed (not exactly sure what happened, she is much less computer literate than I am and just credited the crash to a virus, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't it... long story short she just had a friend re-install windows 7 and whatnot.)
She needed me to her re-connected to our wireless network.. At the time, I was able to (and was) connected to our network. I ran into the same problem with hers, but ended up doing something to get it to work. I didn't meddle with any of the network options, I don't think (I can't remember... I didn't change any passwords, I left it on WPA-2 Personal, all that).

Hi guys im currently living in a university dorm using a wifi adapter for my desktop pc due to the fact that there is no ethernet access, and from august to the 25th of january it was working fine until i can no longer connect to the network, its a university network it uses WPA2-Entreprise security so i have to put my student logon, and im able to connect to other networks such as my phone's hotspot so i know my wireless adapter is fine, it just says windows was unable to connect to the network when i try, i tried forgetting network, flushing dns, reinstalling wireless adapter drivers, restarting pc, scanning for viruses, using another wireless adapter, using another student's log in, still no luck. I contacted the IT department for my university they said there was no major changes on the internet so they cant really help me, im the only one in my dorm with this issue.

Thats what I get when I try connecting to my wireless connection via my laptop. It works fine on my other computer. Any way I can solve this? Thanks!

has the router got secruity set and have you set that up on the PC
are you using windows wireless and the utility that came with the network adapter - sometimes these can cause problems

I assume the other PC is using wireless

make model of Pc and adapter would help

do you see the wireless network OK in the list - if so does it say anything about secruity

"... The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks and try again."
 
I was given an old pc (Dell Optiplex 320) which had been used where I work. I did not reformat, but reinstalled XP Pro from the supplied Dell reinstallation disc. I have installed drivers for the graphics card and for the wireless adapter. I am unable to connect wirelessly at home or at work. I do have the network key for the workplace router, but can't get to the point where I need to enter it. I tried to connect to my smartphone's wifi hotspot, to no avail. I'm sure this is a simple fix, however my skills are spotty at best.

A:"Windows is unable to connect to the wireless network."

If these are the specs for the computer you have :-  http://www.northwoodcomputer.com/Flyers/opti_320techspecs.pdf
 
Then, as built by Dell, it doesn't contain a wireless card !  It is of course always possible that one was fitted later. If you are certain you (1) have a wireless card, (2) have identified it correctly, and (3) have managed to find and install the drivers for it, the possibility remains that the card may be faulty. Experience shows that wireless cards can fail, and in some very non-obvious ways !
 
It might be worth your while trying a USB wi-fi dongle if only to check that the problem is or is not with your card. I have used one in my own computer since the day we went wireless - see picture - and is mounted in a magnetic mounted clip as far forward on the casing as it will go with a short extension cable to the back panel.
 
http://imageshack.com/a/img577/9316/v3k4.jpg
 
If you cannot borrow one, they are not expensive. That is why I bought one in the first place, it was cheaper than an internal card. But it will tell you if a wi-fi signal is reaching your computer and whether or not you can connect. If you can connect with a dongle, then your wireless card is probably deceased.

Hi there,

I recently rebooted an older laptop that has a wireless B & G card. When I tried to log on to the wireless connection (2wire model#:2701HG-B) I received an error message: "Windows is unable to connect to selected network..." I have other computers connected to the gateway but cannot figure out how to connect this one. I have used both windows and my wireless adapter's connection utility to try but with no luck. (I have a Dell Wireless 1450 Dual Band WLAN Mini-PCI Card.)

I have also tried switching the connection between shared and open as well as the password between WEP and WPA encryption. I am not sure what else to do.

Please help. Thanks - Ryan
 

A:Windows is unable to connect to selected network...

You look at the settings of a working connection and then set this laptop up accordingly.

You should not be playing/guessing at the wireless encryption method. It is either wep or wpa but you need to know that and the correct key or you are not going anywhere.

work on getting a wireless connection to the router then the rest should follow.

Hi,
I have a HP Compaq nc6220 laptop which is currently using intel (R) PRO/wireless 2200BG network connection.(Network adapter).

Its a microsoft windows XP, professional version 2002, service pack 2. My router is a sky home hub (model:SR101, Firmware Version 1.15j.2639.R) and is connected through WPA2-PSK.

I used to be able to connect to my secured connection at home, however I can no longer connect. It comes up with the following error:
"detecting network type..."
"windows is unable to connect to the selected network. the network may no longer be in range. please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again."

I have connected my laptop with a wired connection and its works just fine. I have deleted and re-installed the drivers, however this does not make any difference.

I have also tried to disable the internal wirelss card and used a netgear dongle. It connects with that for about 1 minute then discconnects and does not connect again.

I have another laptop, same brand, model and specs that connects perfectly.

I do not understand where the problem lies, can someody please help me.

I recently moved from an XP machine to Windows 7 Home premium and I am now unable to connect to network shares, printers, etc at work. This is a laptop that I use both at home and at work and it's not in the domain (neither was the XP machine). On the XP machine I just mapped network drives and printers using the server name and then used my network credentials (\domain\username and password). The Windows 7 machine is in the network (it's wired through ethernet) and I can access the internet through our proxy server. When I look under "Network", I see all of the servers and clients on the network, but when I try to connect to one of them, I am prompted for login/password- once I enter these, it says "Logon failure: unknown username or bad password".

Why does this work under XP and not Windows 7?

Thanks,

Hey! This is my first post and probably not my last.

So my problem is, is that whenever I try to connect to my home Wi-Fi / Network, a window opens right after I enter the correct WEP key, and it says, "Windows is unable to connect to DMNetwork. (DMNetwork is my network name) I run the trouble shooter and it tells me to reset my mode, blah blah, restart my router, and you know the rest. After I finished that it still didn't work. I tried MANY MANY MANY things I found off the internet to try and fix this, (I currently connected the ethernet cable to my laptop) and nothing works, I hope I can find a solution here. I tried to unbind IPv6, using a WEP key, using a WPA and WPA2 key, no key at all and tried changing the keys to see if that worked (because that worked before), I deleted all my network profiles to see if that worked, but it didn't and I also tried updating my network adapters but they're all up-to-date and I can't click on the "Roll Back Driver" button.

So, this happened before but I was easily able to fix it by changing the network key.

Alright, I have had three tech support specialist from Bell remote assist me, and all of them, including one "Level 2" specialist, whom I was on the phone with while he was remote assissting me could not figure out the problem.

Anyway, I am using the Belkin N Wireless USB Adapter (Model F5D8053, Version 3) to connect to the wireless network.
I'm using my Desktop computer, which has Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)
The router/modem is the 2wire from Bell

I have uninstalled the adapter's software and removed the drivers, re-installed the software, inserted the router and installed the driver, and nothing.

I have also tried changing the wireless channel in the 2wire's settings, stop and restart the DHCP.

My Internet connection is set to automaticly obtain IP addresses.

I believe it is due to the fact that there is a number 9 after the wireless connection name. (Wireless Network Connection 9)

If there is anymore information needed, please let me know.

Thanks for all the help!

Hi,

I am trying to connect to the internet using an external wireless device (Netgear model:MA101), I have managed to install the drivers and my wireless network is coming up as an option! For some bizarre reason when I try and connect the following messages appears:-

"Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try again"

I then refresh and try to connect but the message constantly appears I have rebooted my computer in case it needs to reset after installing the driver for the wireless device. No joy!

I know it's not a problem with the internet or the wirelss network because I currently have my laptop connected and working perfect. Any ideas?
 

A:Solved: Windows is unable to connect to the selected network

Did some checking via Google.

The Netgear model:MA101 is a very old 802.11b adapter that uses only WEP encryption. Netgear doesn't even list it on their site anymore.

Did find some old posts that say it doesn't work with routers using b/g mixed mode, but only with those using b mode.

Hi guys,
I just got back from vacation and suddenly can't connect to my Wifi network at home with my netbook anymore. It says validating identity but never connects. When I try to repair the connection, it keeps authenticating and then says that windows is unable to find a certificate to log me on to the network. I did some googling and it was suggested to uncheck the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network box under the Authentication tab in Wireless Network properties. I tried that but then I get an error message saying "The network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configuration".
I have no idea what to do or what the problem is. My other laptop works fine from which I have set up this network works fine. My phone seems to work fine, too. I already restarted the router and my netbook but that didn't help either.
I would appreciate some help!

Change advanced settings

I would have to tick the checkbox USE WINDOWS TO CONFIGURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS
Then into properties for my wireless network and in association retype my password and then it would connect. (it seemed like to much work every time but it still worked)
There was other networks in the list which i deleted and wireless network connection shows that the network connection strength is excellent but it just seems to get stuck aquiring the network address. I have tried repair etc.

Hello, I am using WINDOWS 7 64bit in my HP LAPTOP.
When I start my PC, it connects to the network automatically and works fine. But after a few minutes, if any network interruption(like voltage up down or if i restart the router etc.) occurs it failed to connect to the network again. Even sometimes it lost the connection without any reason. I tried using troubleshoot. But I could not figure out any possible solution and permanent one. Can you guys, help me please? Thanks in advance. I am attaching the screenshots regarding this problem. Anyways, My NETWORK name is "Zarif"

 

A:Windows was Unable to connect to a "NETWORK"

Delete the wireless profile and then try again. If that doesn't work, delete the wireless profile, broadcast the SSID, and try to connect. If successful that should confirm that the wireless profile is correct, and then when/if you again disable the SSID broadcast I think (have no experience with 'hidden' networks) you should be able to still connect.

As a side question, why disable the SSID broadcast?

Hi there, unfortunately I had to go onto a website last night called "Audible" because I have a payment on my credit card showing and I wanted to know what it was. My pop up browser warned me that the site may contain harmful content but I had to proceed to be able to find out what I was being charged for. I accessed the site via an email. I have tried to open up my laptop this morning and a sign popped up saying a corrupt file had changed my homepage. I cannot click on it to set is as my default. I cannot connect to the internet either, when I click on network places and highlight my usual one it comes up with a message "This is taking longer than usual". Can anyone out there help me please ?

I have been trying to connect to my university's network, but I am unable. I USED to be able, but now something changed and I can't. I am pretty sure that my Ethernet card is working properly, since when I plug in the cord I get a blinking green light, and it says that the driver is installed and working properly. Plus, when I run IPCONFIG, it gives me an IP Address and Subnet Mask. However, it does NOT give me either a Connection-Specific DNS Suffix nor a Default Gateway. I checked, and I am pretty sure that I have no firewalls (including the built-on XP one) running. Any idea why I can get an IP address and not connect to the network? My computer is registered with the university, and I used to be able to get online.
Thank you!!!!
 

A:Unable to connect to network

Can you connect to any other site on the Internet? If you can the problem is probably not with your side of the connection.

I've been trying to help a friend fix her computer. I seem to be stuck and can't figure it out.

I scanned it with AVG and the only infection that shows up is Trojan horse BackDoor.Generic14.BZSZ. I also scanned with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and quite a bit more infected files showed up. It crashes whenever I try to repair anything. The computer is running Windows 7 32bit. The only obvious symptoms I can see is it's not able to connect to any network.

Any help would be appreciated!

and welcome to the Forum

I moved your threat to the Networking Forum. Has this pc ever connected to your home network before?

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.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

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.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

Recently I switched ISPs to Qwest, after switching I noticed a severe lag in my wireless internet feed to my PC. I was able to connect to my network and access my internets as I pleased. Recently after that my mum had her laptop's wireless card fritz out. She called a gent from Geek Squad to come out and he re-worked the wireless set-up and updated the firmware for our router and everything. He was unable to get to my computer in time to set me into the network and as usual with them, their directions on how I am to set it up were forgotten and then never written down.

So, that night when I went to access my network it did not show up in the list of available networks. My wireless card is 2 weeks old and works fine, it's just a matter of integrating myself into the network. Any help would be very much appreciated.

A:Unable to connect to network on my PC.

Well first off, don't go to Geek Squad, they seriously don't know anything.

OKay and 2nd, I need more info, what is the wireless router model, what kind of secruity, what is your new ISP and if it comes down to anything, you may have to install a new update onto your ISP or for your router. My mother had the same problem when she got her new Vista laptop.

Hi,

Since recently I am no longer able to connect to my router from one of my laptops. The connection is failing wireless as well as by cable. My other two laptops are having no problem at all so I think it is a problem with the laptop.

I check other posts and found I could do a TCP/IP reset so I have done that.
If have executed these commands on a elevated command line:
- netsh winsock reset catalog
- netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
- netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

I have restared the laptop afterwards but the problem remains: I am unable to connect to the router.

This is the output of the "ipconfig /all" command (command is ran while I've had only the adapter with the cable enabled, wireless adapter was disabled):

Windows XP Pro
3.0 Mhz P4
1 GB PC3200 RAM
On-Board NIC

Let me run down the spiel of this network saga:

Power surge happened Sunday afternoon. Sunday morning, I was connected fine. The orange light on the NIC shows it's on, but no connectivity. I have Comcast. Comcast modem is showing 4 lights - Power, Receive, Send, and Online. There is also a PC/Activity Light. That is suppose to show orange and nothing is blinking there. I also have a wireless network setup. The wireless router is responding and it seems to be getting activity from the LAN. I have a laptop that is setup wireless, but it won't connect to the internet since my modem doesn't have LAN activity.

I was on the phone w/ Comcast trying to figure this out. Replaced out network cables, reset modem numerous times, reset PC numerous times, hard-wired modem to the PC, hard-wired modem to my laptop with LAN enabled, still nothing. Comcast said to replace out modem. Replaced it out and still no connectivity. Brought my PC up to work to determine if it's a bad NIC or not. I had a live connection and I notice the orange light on my NIC is still on with or without any ethernet cable. Powered the PC on and still no connectivity. Uninstalled NIC and the PC detected the NIC. Still no connection. Checked in BIOS to see if on-board LAN is on and it is on. Reset BIOS and still no connectivity. Any other suggestions or bad NIC?

I have taken the tablet over to StarBucks and was able to connect to their wireless network easily.

Of course Acer is no help. Since it came with Windows 7, that is the only support they can offer.

Ok, I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 running WinXP that I just recently reformatted. I have a Linksys Wireless-G Notebook adapter (WPC54G ver.3) that I installed. XP picks it up and sees my wireless network(along with my neighbors) but I can't connect. I put in the correct key and it still doesn't connect.

How I got to where I am now:

The guy who own's this laptop had spilled on it. I cleaned it out thoroughly and it was working fine for him for a few months. Then the screen started flickering and typing anything wasn't working right.

Any ideas?
