my wireless connection has stopped working and won't repair itself.I have uninstalled it and rebooted my laptop (as suggested in a previous thread) but it's still not working. I have a Toshiba Satallite Pro L300 laptop.I went to the Toshiba site to find a download for the wireless adaptor but couldn't even find my model number on their system. I can get on the internet by plugging directly to the modem, and my internet provider suggests it must be the adaptor. I'm too scared to randomly download stuff from internet in case it is rubbish and mucks up my computer.
I purchased an e4200 about 6 months ago and it worked great until the other night the Internet stopped working on my laptop (wireless). I tried unplugging both my modem (Motorola Surfboard) and router and plugging them back in, but no luck. I can accesss the Internet when plugged directly into the router (with both my PC and laptop), so it looks like the issue is with the e4200. To make matters worse (and I fear much worse), I can't even access the admin page to the router through either the Cisco Connect software or through the IP address. I've tried resetting it, I've tried the 30/30/30 reset (holding the reset button while doing an unplug and pluging back in), and reinstalling the Cisco Connect software, all to no avail.
I've found threads where others have not been able to access the admin page, but they still had access to the Internet url... I haven't found a similar thread where the router doesn't seem to work at all. A few other bits of information I can think of (let me know if there's other information I can provide):The Cisco logo light flashes slowly after reset which I believe is expected.The lights in back of the router seem to work as intended.Running Windows 7 Diagnostics finds the connection "doesn't have a valid IP configuration" and "The default gateway is not available."
Having the same problem with a Dell Inspiron Laptop using a belkin pcmcia wireless card. It was working, but has stopped doing so. I was missing some network adapters which I have reinstalled, and the hard wired connection is now working again, but wireless will not get past the acquiring network address phase. I tried the ipconfig /all and it shows my IP address as 0.0.0.0 and the same on the subnet mask. it says the autoconfig is enabled and dhcp is enabled. My HP laptop is connecting to the wireless network just fine.
I have an HP/Compaq laptop that is quite a few years old but has been working fine. It has stopped connecting to the internet although it will connect to my wireless network. The internet works and all other devices (my tablet, my phone, daughter's laptop, etc) all connect. The laptop started having troubles recently and would eventually connect to the internet if I rebooted a couple of times. However, I've been trying multiple times today and it still won't connect.I have Windows Vista and the repair function has not fixed it or diagnosed the error.
I have an ACER Aspire 1830 (netbook) and has 3g build in according to the teacher, and it obviously is in because the sim has been put in the laptop (The scrap is in the box from the sim). Everytime I try to use it it says that my APN is incorrect.
I have taken a few steps to try and fix this:
1. I have changed the APN to all of the possible ones from Telstra (telstra.internet, telstra.data, etc.), and none of them seemed to have worked.
2. I asked a friend who has the same laptop whos 3g IS working to check the details on his laptop, and there is no APN or user/pass in his laptop.
I have an old Gateway W322 laptop running Windows XP Home Edition and it recently stopped being able to connect to the internet. It happened gradually, at first having connection problems off and on for a few hours, and eventually it would no longer connect at all. I tried using an ethernet cable to the modem and that didn't work. I also know it's not my modem because I have other computers in my house and they are connecting just fine.
Brand new install on an Acer AOA 150 / Aspire One, - Win XP SP3 - Atheros AR5007EG wireless adapter - connects via ethernet fine. - will find the WIFi just fine, connection quality excellent. - received packets at 2..
My desktop was wirelessly connected to a router. It was working perfect, I did a wired connection from the modem to the desktop and when I tried to get the wireless connection again it has not been possible. When I try network trouble shooting I get DNS server might be unavailable. Been reading around and tried many of the things that I've read but none has worked so far.
My wireless router stopped working. diagnostics messages say it could be either bad ethernet cable (not the problem as I am using the cable right now to plug directly in to cable company modem to gain access to internet) OR "drivers not being recognized"
My DIR-655 wireless has stopped working after a few years of flawless operation. It still works for wired operation. I was running Firmware 1.21, tried rebooting, resetting to factory, powered off the unit, etc. without success. Decided to Upgrade to the firmware to 135 NA, still no success. I am in British Columbia on Shaw Cable. On the Status Page under Wireless LAN, the Wireless Radio shows "Init failed".
I have XPS 15 laptop. It has worked great for over a year and a half. Suddenly last Friday the wireless stopped working. All other devices are working fine using the same wireless including a dell Inspiron laptop. I installed Intel WiFi driver version 22.214.171.124, A02, flushed the dns, but cannot get it to work.
I'm having problems with the wireless button after I took my laptop apart to clean. The wireless button won't switch on at all and doesn't light up. When I press fn f8 nothing happens. I'm not sure what I've done. The wires are correctly in place as far as I can tell. I've tried the following things:Uninstalling the adapter in device manager and rebooting /Checked adapter is listed as working properly /Do a system restore /Check BIOS
I have a DIR-825 (B) for over a year now. This morning, the wireless on it suddenly stopped working. Meaning, all my machines not longer seeing the signal from that router. If I hardwire to it, it will work fine. I have check the wireless settings and they all look fine.
I have a Comcast modem and a DIR-655 router. I finally got them to work together (it took some doing!) and now the router has stopped working with my Roku player and laptop. It still works fine with the desktop that's wired into it.
I have an Acer Aspire 5315. I recently reformatted the laptop and it now says I have no wireless adapter installed or configured. I'm assuming it's just a driver problem but when I went to find the wireless drivers for it there were a lot. I tried two different drivers for it with no success.
my Acer laptop lost connection to my wireless router - had wireless component replaced but still won't connect. Will connect to other wireless sites. No problem with other 2 laptops connecting to my wireless

Three nights ago, around 9:30 P.M PST, my wireless connection to my router began constantly dropping every few seconds/minutes. This happens to all of my wireless devices only while I am in my bedroom, nowhere else. In every other room, my connection is stable.
[CODE]My router stopped working when I tried to connect my new Samsung Smart TV to the wireless network by using the menu on the tv. I had to go and press the WSL button on the router. I pressed what I though was the WSL button and now my router doesn't work. I has three lights lit up, the power on light, a small green blinking light and an amber light by the number 1.I've gone to the Netgear website and they want $69 for assistance to get my router up and running. I can buy a new router for that much money. There has to be an easier way.
I have a Century Link modem connected to a Linksys router. I have three computers hooked up wireless. I used another computer to hook up with the ethernet cable because that wouldn't work wireless for some reason. A little while after that, the Linksys network stopped working completely(all three computers could not access the internet). Now I can only connect to the internet if I use a ethernet cable from the modem.
I got the computer in 09 with windows vista and the internet worked correctly. i upgraded to windows 7 in 2010 or 11 and the wireless was still working. Last year all of a sudden my wireless internet stopped working and had to use a cable to connect to my router. A few months went by and i randomly got my wireless internet connection back for about 2-3 months now all of a sudden my wireless is out again. i ran tests in other threads posted on this subject and the only way they got it to work was to buy a usb connection. is this the only way im going to be able to get wireless back?
My dlink dir 628 wireless router suddenly stopped working yesterday. If I plug the ethernet cable directly into my computer and the internet works. I see the wireless profile in the options for the wireless internet, but when I try to connect, it is unable to do so.
I've tried resetting the router (using the button on the device) witand reinstalling the router (using the CD), but still not working. Also have tried turning off the modem, router, and restarting my computer.
why my wireless does not appear anymore on my laptop? Also the Fn sticky key F8 does not show up. I did an upgrade from windows vista to windows7, and than I downloaded the toshiba Service Pack, so i've got the sticky keys back, but not F8 one.
My internet went down temporarily last week and ever since my computer has not been able to maintain a connection. It will pick up the signal intermittently but produce painfully slow internet and then promptly lose the signal all together. The wireless connection is working perfectly on laptops and smart phones, even when in the same position from the router as my PC.
My router randomly stopped working after I bumped into the wire. It still shows up as a network you can connect to, but whenever I try to connect, it keeps saying there is a problem with my connection. I tried using a different internet cord, but nothing changes. I even tried to reinstall my router and still no dice.
EA4500 was working fine for about 2 months.Now, its not so happy.Power indicator is on.Plug something into one of network ports - nothing, and no indicator LEDs are on.Plug an operational internet cable into it - nothing, and no indicator LEDs are on.
Last night, my wireless router suddenly stopped working. I no longer saw my router listed in my available wireless networks, and neither could my girlfriend from her computer. I unplugged the router to see if one of the available networks had disappeared in case my router had somehow been reset, and nothing changed so my computer isnt even seeing my router. Right now, I am wired through the router so I know the router works, but the wireless part doesnt for some reason. I was looking up stuff in the FAQ, and think the firmware is corrupted since the LEDs are all blinking. I was trying to update my firmware following the instructions I found using tftp.exe, however it failed. One problem is that I can't set up a static IP address since I need to access the web-based utility to check my DNS server but I cannot access the web-based utility anymore (maybe cause of the corrupted firmware?). On a related note, there is someone else in my building using a linksys with the default network name of linksys. I had changed my network's name and security-protected it, though that is all likely gone now since I tried to reset the router. My question is what will the network name of my router be if I saw it since "linksys" is already taken. or will there just be two of them?
I have WRT54G connected to a cable modem for internet service. Came home at lunch yesterday and all was working fine. Came home after work last night and couldn't connect to the internet. Called Charter cable this morning and their troubleshooting showed I can connect to the internet fine if I bypass the router, so the issue must be with the router (and of course not their problem...). How do I trouble shoot this? I've tried powering down the router and releasing and renewing IP addresses but it hasn't worked.
