Can see Wireless Network but unable to connect?

Q: Can see Wireless Network but unable to connect?

My son's laptop suddenly stopped being able to connect to the internet via wireless. I can see it okay but just unable to connect. I've checked the drivers and they are up to date. It shows on my network when wired and I've checked with the virus software and I can see no reason for it to be blocked.

Can you help?

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.)

Hi,

I am hoping that someone can help me.
We have three computers at home two which are connected to router and working fine and my laptop.
My laptop was connecting to my home wireless network until my daughter used it last. Now it will not connect at all
I used to have to follow the steps below for some reason and then it would connect fine:
Wireless network connections
Change advanced settings
Wireless Networks tab
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.

Can someone please help me with this as maybe it's just something simple!!

I have an Acer IconiaTab W500 with Windows 8 developer preview installed on it and I cannot get it to connect to my Cisco 1142 APs. I have a Guest network that is for b/g speeds only and requires [WPA2][Auth(PSK)]. I type the password in and Windows comes back and says something is wrong with the adapter or the access point.

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.

I have an Atheros AR9002WB-1NG wireless adapter. I have tried to install the Win7 drivers and it will not allow the installation to run. I can see all the wireless SSID around me, including my Guest network.

I have disabled the MS Kernal Debug Netwrok Adapter. I left the MS Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter enabled.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

A:Unable to connect to wireless network

Switch off your router, leave it for 10mins or something, try connecting again. First try without the Athros adapter.
EDIT: You could also try a different DNS server as well.

Good day!So, this laptop always connected to a LAN cable, and we've rarely brought it away. We're rarely connected to the internet via wireless router, since I don't bring it much. In instances like that 2 years ago, we can connect it seamlessly. But lately, I've been bringing it to school, and it cannot connect by wifi to any router or hotspot.I tried the suggestions from HP Support, like the modifications done in device manager, installing an updated driver for the wireless adapter, restoring the BIOS to its default setup, and others. Still, I can't connect to the wireless networks.Any suggestions?PS: The wireless network adapter in this laptop is a 'Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter

would you post back an xirrus screen and also indicate which wireless is yours
Make and model of your router
------------------------------------------------------------------------
{run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
Then run the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

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, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum so please forgive me if this question has been asked and answered before-i'm not "techy" so I don't really know all the correct terms to do a search by.

I have a "new to me" laptop. Its a Dell Inspirion 9300. I am unable to log on to the wireless network. I see that there's an excellent connection and my computer is telling me that I am connected but when I try to access the internet, via Chrome, I get nada. I get a message telling me that the DNS look up failed, I'm using Windows XP, have Norton Internet Security and am using the Wise 365 Registry Cleaner (it was acting funky before I downloaded the registry cleaner). Is there anything else I need to include? I know the computer's old, but I never had a problem accessing the internet before.

Thanks in advance!

I have an HP Pavilion Laptop that I cannot get to connect to my wireless network. It used to connect with no problem at all. Just all of a sudden it quit connecting. And if it does connect to the network, it says that the network “has limited or no connectivity.” The IP address which I get when this happens is a 169… number. I have never had problems connecting before…THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING!
The laptop recognizes that the network is in range and receives the strongest signal so I don’t think it is a problem with the router. I have even reset the router settings just to try and fix the problem. Also tried disabling the security settings…still won’t connect.

Can anyone help with the following problem please?

I am unable to connect to a wireless network.

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 with an Atheros AR5007EG wireless adapter. This shows as "working correctly" in Device Manager. I have tried to re-install drivers for it endlessly. They all seem to install ok but I still have the problem.

The symtoms are....

1) If I try to setup a wireless connection I get "An unexpected error occured". There are no useful looking messages in Event Viewer.

2) If I use "Diagnose and repair" I get "The network adapter is experiencing driver or hardware related issues".

I have uninstalled just about anything that I think might be causing conflicts. I have scanned for malware. I have run chkdsk and sfc. I have all the latest updates from Windows Update. I have tried in Safe Mode with Networking but still get the same results.

OS is Vista Home Basic 32-bit SP2.

I'd be grateful for any advice that might help to resolve this please.

I have a Dell Demension L733r with a Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB Adaptor. When I start the computer, it connects to the wireless network immediately. As I go through the day, all of a sudden I start getting "Unable to Connect to Wireless Network". I click on the popup and then click on repair. It goes through it's procedures and eventually reconnects the network. Sometimes it says "Connection Very Good" other times "Low" or even "Very Low". Several minutes later, it will do the same thing again and I go through the same procedure again. This might happen several more times then it will be okay. There are days where it never happens at all and then there are days where it happens every 10 minutes or so. It also seems to happen more at night for some reason. How can I eliminate this problem?

Are there any "unknown" devices with yellow on them?

I bought a computer yesterday and am currently unable to connect to my wireless network. The network is a shared wireless network, WEP network key and i'm using a Netcomm Np 7040 usb lan adapter. When I open wireless connections the wireless network is visible and when I try to connect it gives me the error message "windows is unable to connect to the selected wireless network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." I have already googled the problem and one bit of advise was to add the network in the advanced settings and include the network key in that. I did that and it is still coming up with the message. The usb adapter works on all the other computers when connecting to the network so I doubt its that. Any ideas?

I've suddenly been unable to connect to my wireless network and this is the sequence of events leading to the problem. (Currently using a friend's computer). My chrome browser got hijacked by the search conduit virus. So, I cleaned it with AdW cleaner. My internet connection was ok then. After that, I ran ccleaner and cleared the registry.
Now, I find that I have trouble even connecting to my wireless - it says limited connectivity or no connectivity. The other comp's in my house can connect to the internet fine. I've checked and resetted my network adapter. It is working, but still can't connect. I restored all my registry but still it doesn't solve the problem.What have I done wrong?

Hello,

I have Verizon FIOS modem/router. Have a PC connected to it via hardline, works fine, the laptop cannot connect wireless to it. The Laptop was able to connect to other wireless networks. When I try to connect to home, it says "limited or no connectivity". When I connected to a router port with cable, but it worked fine when I disconnected. So it seems to me that it is having trouble with acquiring ip. When I chose "repair", it tried renewing ip and got 169 ip address instead of the usual 192.168.1.x. and could not connect. I tried giving it a static ip, but it did not work. Also, I tried changing the channel once, did not work. And I disable the XP firewall. I am wondering if perhaps changing the ip addresses on the router itself may fix the issue (perhaps in the 192.168.10.x range), perhaps with multiple open networks in the area, there is some kind of mixup. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have tried with another laptop sitting outside the house, and it went online and acquired ip correctly.

Thanks,

Usually the guys like to have make and model of the computer, copies of the ipconfig /all and screenshots of the expanded Device Manager.

Hopefully the problems are just corrupted or wrong drivers.
First thing would be to go to HP support and see if you can download the drivers for the hardware that shows the yellow ?. From your list, you probably need to do at least Chipset, Wireless, Video and Audio drivers

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

3 ways to find the drivers.
Enter the product name/number and search
Download and install the HP ID tool
Search by product catagory, type, name

Also, updating to XP SP3 would make things work better,
SP2 doesn't work with WPA2 unless it has patch KB 893357 installed.

I have an Acer Aspire 5570Z that is running Windows Vista with an Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter. The Windows installation is a brand new clean install with all drivers on the computer being the latest and greatest from their respective manufacturers. Now for my problem...

I am unable to connect to any wireless network using either the onboard wireless network card or an external USB wireless network adapter. When I scan for wireless networks my cpu will see them. I can then select whichever network I want to try and connect to but when I click the connect button it never takes me to the authentication screen to input the WEP key.

I have tried to manually enter the WEP and configure the network but then when I try to connect to the network it still tells me that Windows is unable to connect to the network. It gives me the option to diagnose connection or connect to another network but when I try diagnosing the connection it scans for a split second then it only gives me an option to go view available wireless networks.

It is like my computer has lost the ability to authenticate a network connection. Has anyone ran across this problem before and do you know a fix? I'm looking for any ideas you can give me here as my daughter starts college in a couple of weeks and she really needs this computer.

Please help me if you can.
 

A:Solved: Unable to connect to any wireless network

there is an issue with vista and that adapter - see below

Just try with the internal adapter and the suggestions below - if they don't work - we can come back to the usb adapter and diagnose further

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007
Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will ... Read more

I've spent a lot of time looking for the answer here, I'm really hoping someone here can help. After a recent trip, I came home and was unable to wirelessly connect to my secure home network.

I can connect to it secure and wired as well as unsecured and wireless, but not secured and wireless. I have done malware scans and checked for driver updates for both my netowrking card and the Linksys WRT54G router firmware...both are good. All of the other systems in the house can wirelessly connect to it while secured, so I've narrowed it down to clearly being a problem with my computer. Any ideas? I am using Vista Home Premium 64 bit on an ASUS G50VT.

Please help!

Hello All,
Can anybody help me in solving my problem. I just formatted my Dell Inspirion N5010 last week. Ever since then, I have not been able to connect to my office wireless network.

I was using this network before my system was formatted. one funny thing is that i can connect to other wireless network in range but find it difficult to connect to my office network. I always get limited network access while other people in the same office have access to the network.

Please what could be the problem?

Hi all,
i have some problem with my wireless connectivity,
When i try to connect to a wireless network, it keep saying "Unable to Connect to X" (let's assume the network name is X)

When using network troubleshooter,
it recommend me to turn off the router, keep it for 10 secs, and turn it back on,
i've done so, but the problem still there
and then the troubleshooter say there're some problem on the access point or the network adapter (Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN)

but it seems no problem with other networks and all laptops except this S57B works fine..

and the strangest of all is: somtimes it works fine, and sometimes disconnected + unable to connect.

What possibly causing the problem?

Additional Info:
BenQ Joybook S57B
OS: Win 7 Ultimate x86 (Upgrade ver. from Vista Home)
Network Security Type is WEP

Thx in advance

A:Win 7 unable to connect to wireless network(router)

I have had trouble adding a separate cisco switch and a wireless router onto the comcast cable router. I have the phone and internet. After running a PING test I saw the speed was significantly slowed down by 1/4 due to the netgear wireless router. So I unplugged that and bought a non-wireless cisco router that did not slow the speed down. Now I need a wireless router as my wife bought a Ipodtouch. Don't waist your money on one of these, get the real ipod phone! Just a note! These are worthless if you can't get online! Only good for photo's, Music, and videos downloaded onto it. Back to the wireless network problem. The main router needs to have multiple ports or the DNS will not work. I am guessing you are running more then 1 router inline.

After doing a clean install of Win XP Pro on a friends laptop I am having the following issues connecting to his secured wireless connection. An Apple Macbook in the family has no issues connecting wirelessly.

After selecting his wireless network and entering in the password when I had the settings set to "Obtain an IP Address automatically" in TCP/IP Properties it kept on attempting to acquire the address. When I selected "Use the following IP address" and entered in the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway it told me I was connected but I still was not able to view web sites either through IE 7 or Firefox. I had the "Preferred DNS Server" and "Alternate DNS server" fields empty.

I will attempt to use 208.67.222.222 as the "Preferred DNS Server" and 208.67.220.220 as the "Alternate DNS server". If that doesn't work could the supplied password be incorrect? Are the DNS Server addresses I will use pretty standard?

What would prevent me from using the "Obtain an IP Address automatically" option to connect successfully?

When I tried to access the settings of the Linksys G router I did not have the correct user name and maybe password also. I hope my friend knows the correct user name to modify the settings of the Linksys router.

Thank you for your expertise and time.

"... 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.

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!

Hey guys. So here's the thing.. I'm in a pretty big hurry, because I really need to do a very important thing, but there's something blocking me from doing it..

First off, my computer is running windows 7 32bit. my router's model is zyxel (i'm too lazy to check the whole name of the router, but if needed, i'll do it), and my network adapter model is writen in the message.

So, couple of years ago, I came from another city, to this new one, and since then, the computer I've always had, just started to have some weird issues connecting to the internet. everytime I wanted to prolerly get access to the internet I had to reboot the router twice for some reason, otherwise it wouldn't work.

a few weeks ago though, that stopped working, somehow LOL
so, after hours of investigating, just playing with some of the configurations (being careful with what I did, obviously, I switched back settings that didn't do anything special), and I noticed that the only thiing that worked, was that troubleshooting option you get on windows 7 when you click the network thing down there. it just seemed to restart the network adapter and somehow the internet connected..

now, today, it all went nuclear on me.. and what a day for that to happen.
everything that has previously worked before, doesn't work anymore.
for starters, in the beginning of the day, it seemed as if the computer couldn't detect the network adapter any longer, so, I took a break... Read more

I'm having some trouble connecting my desktop to my wireless router. Whenever I try to connect to my own network the desktop just says connecting for a while then does nothing.

The desktop is using a Belkin F5D7000 v1 wireless adapter and is running Windows XP SP3.

The router is a Linksys WRT54G2.

Both have the most recent firmware/driver updates, though the latest driver for the wireless adapter is about 6 years old.

I have tried disabling all the network security options and still cannot connect.

I've also been able to successfully connect to my network with a laptop, as well as connect to nearby wireless networks with the desktop.

If anyone has any suggestions or advice please let me know.

Eventually I have to unhide the network to connect it.
Having been able to connect to the hidden wireless network, I then hide the network again.  However the computer won't automatically connect to the hidden network again after the computer restarts until I unhide the network.  In this scenario, it
seems to perform much worse than Windows XP.

Hi,
Regarding current situation, I suggest we try to set up a new connection or network again by following these steps:
1. Select "Manually connect to a wireless network" and click or tap "Next.
2. Enter the security information for your network in the spaces provided. Please check on the option ?Connect
even if the network is not broadcasting.?
Note Be sure to enter the information exactly as it was set up on your wireless router to ensure the connection. Once the information is completed, click or tap "Next.
3. Provided you entered the information correctly, you?ll receive a notice of success.
Then, please make sure that you turn off the power-save on your network adapter:


Open Network and Sharing Center.Click the Change adapter settings link in the upper left of the navigation pane.Right click the network connection you want to enable/disable power management support on and click Properties .Click Configure .On the Power Management tab, clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box.
Then, please check the issue again.
Hope these could be helpful and keep post.Regards,

Hey folks,

As of yesterday, I have not been able to get my wireless card on my Windows 7 (x64) desktop to work. When it normally gives me connectivity issues, I simply do a quick uninstall/reinstall and it worked fine. However, after uninstalling it last night I could not get it to install correctly. I tried to set it up using the installation process cd it came with, however that never got past the "Detecting USB Card..." stage, as even with the card plugged in to various ports. To compound the problem, even after telling Windows to uninstall the card and remove the drivers, it would instantly reinstall the card's drivers when I plugged it in, despite still not showing up on the installer.

The wireless card (a Cisco AE2500) would show up in device manager, and in network adapters it would show up but was disabled, and enabling wouldn't work, as in it would stay disabled. Running a troubleshoot on it just came up with "There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection Adapter."

Not sure if it was a problem with the card or something worse, I popped across to Bestbuy and grabbed anther card to see if it would work (a D-Link N300). I ran the installer for that, plugged in the new card, it detected and installed the drivers. But, I still can't connect to my home network as I just get "No connections are available" and still get the "might be a problem with the driver" bit. However the c... Read more

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:

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

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

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
