Unable to connect to a unsecured wireless network that ive been connecting to for the last year for about a week today i was able to connect when first starting my laptop but after shutdown and restarting an hour later same problem odd thing i find is there are two other laptops in my home that have no problem connecting to this network at anytime i have very little knowledge of laptops or wireless networks.
I have flashed the firmware on my wireless wrrt54gl router to DD-WRT mini, i now want to set it up to connect to unsecured wireless around the neighbourhood, the only other network hardware at my disposal is a WLAN usb adapter and the Ethernet on my pc.
I'm going to upgrade the routers antenna with bigger omni-directional antenna, and connect to whatever networks pop up on the radar.How do i go about all this in regards to the settings on the router and/or computer?
I can go to the public library and log on without a hitch, but at a coffee house or cafe I can not connect. Sometimes it says 'cannot validate..' and sometimes it just says 'unable to connect to wireless network' What gives?
I share an unsecured network with my next door neighbor. The Norton Antivirus trial ran out on my new Sony VAIO laptop. Immediately after, it stopped connecting to our network (and any other unsecured network). I've tried turning off Windows Firewall, turning off Windows Defender, did a system restore, uninstalled Norton, used the Norton removal tool, installed and uninstalled another antivirus program (the one that Google Apps recommends... starts with an I), verified the wireless switch is turned on, rebooted my computer, did every update for both Windows and VAIO, booted in safe mode w/ networking, created a new profile... nothing is working!!!!
we were having problems with our netgear router (DGN1000) mainly with connection when online gaming with PS3, generally poor connection - so purchased a TP-Link router (TD-W8960N). We could usually access the netgear wirelessly on our laptops Dell and Acer Aspire 4820T (both Windows 7) without any problems and were still doing so last night. However hubby attempted to install the new router last night and all seemed to go fine but after installing we couldn't connect to the wireless network through laptops, iphone ps3 etc - even though we could see the network with excellent strength, after hours of trying called TP-Link they went through everything they could think of and still no joy. Gave up in the end and went to reinstall the netgear Router and now we have the same problem with this router, even though earlier in the night it wasn't a problem - we deleted the previous networks so there was nothing stored in memory & tried everything we can think of (although neither of us are brilliant with IT we do usually get by).We even set up an unsecured wireless network (on both routers) and still couldn't connect .

Unable to connect to unsecured wireless sites using a USB Realtec high gain antenna on a Toshiba laptop running Win7 Pro, 64 bit. Network troubleshooter resets adapter but states it cannot correct the problem. Wireless adapter settings set to High Performance. Latest Realtec drivers have been downloaded and installed. Light on front of the laptop shows that the wireless function is running. Turned the function off, rebooted and then turned it back on. Same result when Toshiba is operating off 110v so power shouldn't be the problem.
I'm not sure why the guest net work is unsecured. I would have thought that would not be an option but it is unsecured. How to secure the guest network [2.4 GHz]? Also when I view the guest list some devices stay displayed whether they are in the vicinity or even turned off. That adds to my paranoia with the guest network being unsecured. I also can't edit the screen names to know who the device belongs to like is available in "my devices", forcing me to keep a MAC address list.
In the process of setting-up a E2500 Linksys router, I set-up my secured network which is working fine but also (I do not know how I did this??) set-up the same named network but it is unsecured. How do I delete this unsecured network.Do I need to set-up the router again?
my toshiba L505-S5990 will only allow connections to unsecured networks. finally had to reset my router at home through my desktop as unsecured so I can get a wireless connection on my laptop but of course do not want to keep my home network unsecured.
I have a HP-G72 C55DX notebook that cannot connect to an unsecured network, it could access encrypted networks but not unsecured, i have windows 7 home premium the funny thing is it connects to the itouch just fine, i looked this problen up on google
I have a WTR160N-RM. I just moved and the cable technician hooked it up unsecured. I didn't catch it until he left. I can access the Linksys webite with the standard IP address and generic password, but I'm not sure what needs to be changed. I've looked at several UTube videos and read some online instructions, but they all different a bit. How I can secure my wireless again? I have an old Toshiba LT that just keeps on tickin'.
I'm running Windows 7 and have a dlink dir615 wireless router. I've had it for a year and never had this problem before. I changed the SSID to "router" and set a WPA encryption on the router's page. Now this SSID shows up and I can connect to it using the password I set, but it also shows up as a separate unencrypted connection under the default SSID "dlink".
How do I disable the unencrypted connection? I don't know why this is happening. I've set this up correctly a dozen times before.
I live in apartment house that recently had a "professional" (I use that term loosely) sell and install a wireless network for Internet access. I am the only tenant with any knowledge of computers and networking, retired after 30+ years in telecommunications including 7 years in an ISP doing project management. I am also the only user who spends any appreciable amount of time online. The apt owner did not know of my background when he had this guy contracted to do the work. The "engineer" did an inadequate site survey, not thinking of or allowing for RFI, EMI, walls or other obstructions and he neglected to see what the tenants' individual needs were.
The installation was finished more than a week past his due date because "ran out of parts". When he did the individual user setups (he included that in his quote, apparently) he attempted to garner extra business by claiming that the end users' machines were all full of spyware, malware, viruses and worms. At least 3 tenants had brand new machines that had never been connected to the Internet and all three were purchased from different large vendors. I checked the others and out of 17 machines only one had any issues of that type.
There are 3 access points in the building, all with the same SSID to accommodate any tenants wishing to connect anywhere in the building or in the patio area, similar to a hospitality application. Problem:This "engineer" is now refusing to work on the network because he thinks it's a "difference of opinion" when to me, everything points to a possible defective access point or just lousy administration by this guy. The reason I've come to that conclusion is that at random, my secure connection (WPA2) drops and reconnects as unsecured.
The installer is convinced that random dropping, etc is because of my "defective machine" that never had any issues with dropping from a hardwired connection. He told the apt owner that a direct wired connection to the router would not work. Contractually, we tenants cannot contact him directly with service issues. My purpose is just to get decent access.
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've got my network up an running and all my devices (wired computer, wireless PS3, wireless smartphone, etc..) can connect to the network except for one of my wireless computers. I've set the TCP/IP to obtain IP automatically and using the correct PPPOE username/pass I try to connect, but it never works.
I'm having problems connecting to our wireless network. With my old PC in the same room in the house I've had it connected before, about a year ago. With my new computer though, I'm having issue after issue.
