Computer Detects Wireless Router But Can't Connect

May 5, 2011

So a few months ago I bought a wireless router, and I've been using it just fine with my laptop ever since. however, my father-in-law has a laptop and he can't connect to the router. and the other day I bought a brand new desktop PC, and it can't connect tot he router either.both my FIL's laptop and my new desktop detect the wireless router, then when connecting ask for the passphrase. so i put in the passphrase and hit connect, and it says that it couldn't connect (quite the vague error message).

I tried putting in an incorrect password, and an error message comes up saying that the passphrase is wrong, so I know thats not the problem. Next I dissable all security, and both are able to connect to the router just fine, but not with the WEP pass phrase.I don't understand why they can't connect since I have the proper pass phrase. I also have a nintendo DS and Wii, both of which are able to connect to the wireless router with a passphrase, but not without.

so, if I have no security all 3 comps can connect but not the wii or DS. and if I have the WEP security on, only 1 laptop and the Wii/DS can connect. furthermore, my DS requires a WEP security key to anyways, what would cause the problem with the laptop/desktop recognizing the wireless router, validating the password but not actually connecting? but being able to connect without any security?

Laptop Detects Wireless Network But Won't Connect?

Sep 27, 2011

I have a Gateway laptop the was recently brought back from the dead (basically)... So once the rescue and recovery was done some of the drivers were lost including the wireless adapter. I found most of the drivers and was connecting to the internet wireless fine. I just got internet installed in my house a few days ago, in the beginning the laptop would connet to the internet through the gateway set up in my home. Someone reset my modem back to the default settings by mistake. So I reset everything back to the way it was but now the laptop wont connect. I thought it may have been a problem with the modem but when I checke it it says everything is working fine so Im assuming that its something wrong with the laptop. It connects fine if I plug the ethernet cord in and I get the 'wireless networks detected' message and when I clikc on it my network is displayed but when I try to connect it says windows is unable to connect to the selected network. the network may nolonger be in range.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E900 Connects To Internet But Not Detects Work Network

Mar 21, 2013

I have an E900 I replaced an old Airport Extreme with. The reason was for increased download speed. The Apple router I used saw my work network and I could access files and printers; no changes to my Mac were necessary. It worked out of the box. The new Linksys has Internet connectivity but will not see my work network at all. I have looked into the old settings and cannot figure out how to make the new router see my network. I called Linksys but no dice. What settings need to be changed to see the work network? It is connected to the same ethernet cable as the other router that worked fine.

Laptop Detects Not All Available Wireless Connections?

Sep 11, 2012

Laptop detects not all available wireless connections and at the same time on existing connection is very poor signal strength. I make this announce when I compared my and my friend laptop wireless connections, his laptop detects more than ten available connections (when my ASUS K55VD with "Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter" finds just two, no more and both are on very poor signals). I have to be in the same room where is rooter if I want to use the Internet, and as for my friends they can use same wireless connection all above the house. I tried to re-install all network drivers on my Laptop, use programs like Xirrus Wi-Fi inspector, but also, no more than two available connections with poor signal strengt.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Can't Connect 2nd Wired Computer

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Computer Sees Network But Can't Connect

Aug 28, 2011

So I have a WRT54G router since a couple of years now.  Laptop (Win7 64bit), ipod, ipad, phones can connect to it without a problem, but new computer (Win7 64bit) can't.  I can connect the PC via ethernet without a problem though.
I powercycled my devices, I changed broadcasting options off and then back on, changed my security mode, tried the MAC Cloning (after doing the MAC Cloning, I lost internet connectivity even through ethernet), resetted my security settings, changed SSID, I'm broadcasting through channel 11 2.462.  I also tried deleting the HomeGroup
Important fact: the network is in the list of available wireless network, but Signal Strength is No Signal and I can't connect to it. My network adapter is ASUS 802.11n Wireless LAN Card, drivers are up to date. I've upgraded to the latest router firmware.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - See Signal But Can't Connect With Computer Or Iphones?

Oct 17, 2011

I am having problems connecting to my wireless internet.  We were getting a poor signal so we moved our router to our living room where we always are, but now we can't connect.  We tried resetting everything, turned on and off several times.  Went to the linksys wireless set up page, changed SSID and password.  Still can't connect with the computer or our iphones.  It shows our SSID is there but won't connect.  My internet when plug directly to the computer works fine (I am using it now).  My computer can connect to the router Linksys WRT54G, we just can't get it to connect to the wireless.

Atheros AR5B91 Wireless Network Adapter / Cannot Connect To Router After Computer Sleeps

Jul 24, 2012

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 - Cisco Connect Software Won't Load On Computer

Jul 30, 2011

We originally set up Cisco Connect with our E1000 Lynksys Router on a laptop- that has since died.  So- I wanted to set up the software on our desktop and so I put in the set-up disk.  I keep getting message "We didn't find your router" even though I now have the computer linked directly by ethernet cable.  I do have connectivity to internet which I set up using my "Easy set-up key" and have a strong signal.  Can't get past the first router step on the set-up disk to install the program- so now do not have Cisco Connect on any computer.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G2 Doesn't Automatically Connect To Internet On Computer Start-up

Aug 12, 2012

My WRT54G2 v1 does not automatically connect to the internet on computer start-up. The computer will say "Connected, No Internet Access" In order to fix it I have to unplug the router and then plug it back in. This happens to any computer that tries to get online from a cold start-up. The router must always be unplugged, then plugged back in, then it will have internet access (and will generally maintain it throughout the session and even if the computer is restarted, i.e. warm boot). I have downloaded the latest firmware uprade.

Cat5e Detects Phone But Not Ethernet?

Oct 19, 2011

I have a house with a Leviton Enhanced Infraestructure Platform that distributes cat5e wiring to multiple outlets throughout the house. The problem is: Some cables will not transmit the Ethernet (internet) signal, but when I connect a phone line to it, it works. So the cable integrity is fine, but somehow connecting the internet router to it will not make it work.

Windows Detects Wrong Network Card

Jun 22, 2011

I run a windows 7 x64 and I am currently running a Intel (r) 82579V gigabit network adapter. The thing is, the driver was made for 82579LM and V versions. Most of the time, my computer reads the adapter as the LM version, in which the ethernet just won't work. Once in a while it gets the V version and everything is alright, but i can't live with such uncertainty. Mostly people suggest i should just buy a new motherboard (?) or a new network adapter, but i'm sure it's a software problem. Shouldn't there be other solutions? The card itself is integrated.
