Adapter Enabled But Unable To Add Computer To Wireless Network
Jun 15, 2012
I recently entered the realm of wireless networking for my desktops and was able to connect my personal desktop successfully. Unfortunately, the other desktop I really need to make wireless is having difficulties. The computer never shows the message that a new device is discovered/installed. The adapter shows up under hardware devices and functioning properly but this is not the case. I installed the driver from the included CD but when I use Windows to troubleshoot, it says that the driver and adapter aren't working. When trying to set up a new network, I get a grayed-out wireless icon in the system tray and can't proceed. I disabled the firewall and antivirus so I could start over, uninstalling the driver, restarting and installing again.
I have disabled / enabled and unistalled / installed and updated driver software but to no avail.It has been replaced, I have refreshed TCP/IP as per previous instruction found here and it did go a bit further, but now stuck as per below from CCX diagnostics Utility:
I have a HP G62 laptop with windows 7 and a Atheros AR9285 wifi adapter. The Wireless Assistant shows the WLAN as disabled. In the device manager, the adapter is listed as enabled. When I push the F12 key that turns on and off the wireless, the wireless assistant alternates between showing the WLAN as Off or Disabled. I tried disabling the adapter and re-enabling it from the device manager, but the wireless assistant still shows it as disabled.
I have a Sony Vaio and it has been working fine and it Suddenly just disconnected itself from the wireless connection. I did troubleshoot and it fixed itself but it done it again minutes later and simple said a cable was disconnected. I restarted the laptop and it came on fine but it disconnected again and has not worked since. I have gone into the wireless connection settings and it says wireless isn't enabled. The switch is on and illuminated. I've switched it on and off. I have also done a system restore from a previous update just to be sure but there is no change?
Sometimes I cannot connect to the router after my computer has been to sleep. This has occurred on different routers. I can still see the network, but am told I cannot connect when attempting to connect to it. Restarting/shut down does not solve the problem - I have to restart the router itself, and then my computer will reconnect automatically. Other computers/devices will be unaffected by this and maintain a connection the entire time. Atheros AR5B91 Wireless Network Adapter using Windows 7 Service Pack 1.
Since i installed windows 7 on my Samsung R530 notebook i am unable to connect to internet through built in network adopter. while on diagnos it appears that network adopter is not found or may be the driver not been installed?
I have a desktop computer which is connected to the router by cable, but when this computer is on I can't connect to the wireless network with any other devices.When I turn the main computer off though I can connect fine with any wireless device.
the DNS error and was able to fix it but I have a new error. I currently use a Motorola SURFboard SB5101 USB Cable modem and am having an issue. I have tried repairing it and I receive a message "TCP/IP is not enabled for this enabled for this connection. Cannot proceed." I currently have 3 LAN or High-speed internet connections that are showing up. Two are the ones I have said earlier and the third is a Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection #2. All are connected and firewalled but I cannot use the internet.
have purchased Belkin wifi usb adapter dualband N450 and downloaded the driver from included CD, my OS is windows7 starterfter I plug in the adapter, the power ON is litting and wait for a while if will flashing but not. I opened the "NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER" and click the "CHANGE ADAPTER SETTINGS", the Belkin wireless adapter is disabled and had tried enabling it but still it is disable. I uninstalled the driver and the program, I checked in the internet and downloaded the file F9L1101v1_N600.exe and installed. Checked again but still the same problem before, Disabled and tried enabling but to no success.
Looking at getting an older second computer onto the internet. We have a wireless connection on the primary computer so I was looking at the TP-Link TL-WN321G USB network adapter, or the TP-LINK WN350GD PCI network adapter.The end goal of course is to get the old computer onto wireless, but not sure what the best way to do it is. I'd think the motherboard would accept the PCI card though we do somewhat lack USB facilities. The computer uses a USB hub which I'm not sure if it would impact on internet speeds at all.
I have 2 wired desktops and 2 wireless laptops on a small network. Both desktops are running Windows 7. Laptops are with Vista. Everyone has internet accessFor some reason neither wired computer can see the other in the network places window. But both can see the wireless laptops. Network discovery and file sharing are all on and workgroup names are the same.
So I'm currently running window 7 on my msi GT683-R. As of yesterday my internet stopped working, however only on my msi. I'm currently typing this on a borrowed mac using the same network that doesn't work on the other device. It also works on my iPhone. The problem is, neither the wifi nor the wired works on my MSI. I made sure DHCP was on, ran a TCP/IP stack reset, a winsock reset, have restarted my computer/router multiple times, and disabled bonjour but nothing seems to work.
i am unable to connect to some lan computers in my office. when i go to start ---> Run ---> \192.168.0.24 or else...(lan computer ip) after 10/15 seconds a popup window comes and says (network path not found). but some systems i can easily access through this procedure
This will be rather difficult as i'm on a cell phone. Anyways i'm unable to get my computer to recognize that an ethernet cable is connected. I know that the cable is good is i've used it with my girlfriends computer with on problems. I've blowed out the port, used two different cords. Apart from connecting to the internet (which i can't atm) i have no idea what to do.
I can't access anything on the network. The computer is a Dell running Windows Vista Home Premium. All attempts to access the network fail (ping, local shares, http) and other machines cannot access this one. Network & Sharing Center shows a fault between the Home Network and the internet, however I am unable to Ping or be Pinged by other computers on the Home Network. Other machines on the network are working fine both wired and wireless, although the machine in question is wired only (no wireless NIC).
The following items have been attempted, some many times, in no particular order, all producing no change in symptoms (not a complete list).
Network & Sharing diagnose & repair/reset NIC card. Cold boot. Last known good. Safe mode with networking support. Disable/stop all non-essential services & applications including firewall and antivirus. Upgrade network drivers.
My Toshiba laptop running Vista as an operating connects just fine to the wireless network at my house. However, I will soon be house-sitting at a house that also has security-enabled wireless available. I connect just fine at my house, but whenever I put in the password at their house it says that that it cannot connect because of a timeout. I can't figure out what the problem is, because I recently went to the public library that has wifi and got on just fine. why in the world it will not connect to this specific wireless router??
My wife and I Security Enabled our wireless network several months ago.We recently moved, and after transferring Internet service, we realized we'd lost our passkey.My wife's laptop has, after one failed attempt to connect to the network, refused to even show the network as an available connection.We currently have the router set to broadcast SSID.We have restored factory settings on the router and completely revamped the security setup.We've removed all other networks in the area as optional connections on her computer.We also replaced the ethernet cord to my desktop because the old one started erratically disconnecting.Nothing's worked.My wife's computer is a Dell laptop using Windows Vista.
Ever since I bought the E4200 months ago I had no wireless network between my laptops. pc's devices. I discovered now that I do have network (everything cool) when I disable NAT. That is all nice, but I don't have internet then.
I have a new wireless router (new network, entirely). I used to get intermittent "network access denied" messages. Now, I get intermittent connectivity loss: "No internet access." I typically just right click and troubleshoot. The problem is solved and I get the following message: "Problem with wireless adapter or access point." Once fixed, things go on well for a random time (never more then a day). Then, however, they just fall apart.
I have a laptop that is running windows 7 premium and a desk top that is running xp pro. The laptop is connected to the internet but the desktop is not. I have them set up in a ethernet network through an RJ-45, and both are connected, but I can't seem to share the laptop's internet connection with the desk top. I've enabled internet sharing with the wireless network, but my desktop still cannot connect.
I purchased a Linksys EA3500 about two months ago, brought it home and set it up with my DSL provider and everything was great, until sometime last week, and since then my download speeds have just plummeted to basically nothing. I did some troubleshooting but I cannot seem to find what the issue is. I have checked all the cables etc, and I know that it is definitely something with the router itself..My current Speedtest.net speeds are as follows (I am paying for a 5mb connection) with the EA3500.Ping of 15ms Download speed of .67mbps, Upload speed of .60mbps.When I remove the router and hook straight to the DSL modem I get the following results.Pink of 12ms Download speed of 4.89mbps, Upload speed of .60mbps
- I have tried to reset the router both by holding the reset button and through the configuration application. - I have enabled and disabled wireless to see if that was slowing things down - I have plugged in my old WRT54G and I get the 12ms, 4.89mbps,.60mbps results on it (so I know its the EA3500) - I tried putting the computer in the DMZ - I have changed the ports that the computer is plugged into - I have disabled and enabled IPV6 on both router and network card - Firmware version - 184.108.40.206141
