New Wireless Card Not Detecting Available Networks?
Jun 16, 2012
I have a Compaq Presario R3000. It did not hav a wireless card or antenna. I purchased and installed all. I uploaded the drivers and there are no ssues(apparent) with the drivers.I have a Broadcom g Network Adapter. Windows Zero Configuration is started and set to automatic. I reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults using netsh winsock reset catalog and I rebooted.I am lost and don't know what else to check. Also, this machine doesn't have a wifi button that I can see but the card is
When I click on the Wireless Network Connection icon it says "Wireless network unavailable." There's also an error message that says "The Dell Wireless WLAN Card is disabled. Use the Dell Wireless WLAN Utility to enable it." When I right click on the wireless network icon it says "No wireless networks were found in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on. To see an updated list, click 'Refresh network list.'" I don't have a wireless switch. I have a wireless enable icon and it says Enabled. My wireless network is working because my phone sees it and two other networks in the neighborhood. I couldn't find the Dell Wireless WLAN Utility. I also tried my iPhone hotspot. Laptop did not detect it either.
My PC usually shows me a list of wireless connections when i click on that icon.Today, however, it is not showing the list and displays the following message instead:'windows cant configure this wireless connection.' no list, so i am not able to connect to my network.i tried setting up a wireless network through wizard but to no avail. I dont know why this is happening. i got a new wifi modem. i cant even blame the new connection alone, because before that my pc at least used to show other inaccessible wireless networks in the list. but today it shows nothing.i have a windows xp.
I have attached screen prints in various formats.The machine is a PB Easynote TM01 laptop running Win 7, using built in wireless and for some time I have been exeriencing hit and miss internet/network wireless connections.With my limited knowledge I have managed to identify that two of the network adapters are not showing in Device Mnaager when there is NO connection but are showing when there IS a connection.I think this indicates a faulty (or knackered) network adapter.I now have no connection whatsoever and haven't for about a week.I have plugged the machine into the modem now and internet is fine, but what is the point of having a laptop that can't sit on your lap when it is plugged in.
url...My wife was using her Toshiba A215-S5837 and all of a sudden, wireless goes out. No networks to be found. I've tried any number of drivers I could find. I have also tried using the driver as suggested by many places (including the previous thread), found on the CZ site. No luck. I just tried safe mode and updating to no avail. Though Windows 7 is not kind about letting you install a driver initially. I uninstalled, and plug and play took over so I was forced to do it via update.
My laptop doesn't detect any wireless networks. It used to and should, but It hasn't for quite a long time. It stopped detecting them around the time I signed up with my current ISP. I have a dell Inspiron 9300 laptop w/ Win XP sp2
Just re-installed windows on a laptop i got, i got all the drivers installed, but i cant seem to get the wireless card to show up, i know it has wireless because it was my moms laptop before she got a new one. Ive gone to dell support site and literately downloaded all the drivers on the page. Device manager doesn't seem to be detecting the card at all, the dell Wlan utility wont even start ive reinstalled the driver multiple times i even tried the intel site for drivers.
The big problem is i don't know what wireless card it is and its hard to find out because the support pdf for the laptop shows multiple possible cards.
i own an THOSHIBA SATELITE M300 using WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE SERVICE PACK 1 and recently my laptop has stopped finding any wireless networks. Other laptops connect via wireless to the hub without any problems so it must be a problem with my wireless card. Ive tried turning off my hub, as well as system restore and uninstalling my wireless device and letting my laptop reinstall it but it hasn't changed anything. my device manager says that my wireless card is working fine.Even i reinstalled the drivers.
I have an HP Pavilion notebook that was given to me by a friend who had upgraded to a new computer. Due to the fact that she no longer remembered the password to the computer I did a clean install of Windows Vista Home Premium to gain access to the computer. Unfortunately, while the computer seems to be running perfectly, when I attempt to find network connections my computer not only can't find wireless connections, but it doesn't even allow the option of manually creating a wireless connection under my Internet options.My computer has a built in NVIDIA nforce Network controller listed under my network adapters and when I check its status it states that it is working properly, yet it doesn't detect any wireless networks. In addition to this, I've read online that the wireless indicator light on my computer should switch from orange to blue when turned on, but even with my wireless switched on the light remains orange.I've also clicked the update drivers option on the NVIDIA network controller, but it states that the drivers are current and changes nothing.
I have a Inspiron 1520 which came with windows Vista and I recently did a Windows 7 clean installation. There were no drivers specified for Windows 7 in Dell Driver Download so I installed Vista drivers, connected to internet via LAN Cable and upgraded most of the drivers.
WiFI networks could be detected when installed for the first time but after a shutdown it never detects again. Sometimes it randomly detects, I tried using the laptop for 2 weeks now and only 2 times the WiFI automatically came up.
There is a switch to pull after turning on WiFI radio, which will display the list of WiFi networks in a window, that Switch is not responding now.
I have just given my Mum an old Dell desktop computer of mine. She has BT Broadband with a Homehub. I have connected everything up and installed the Homehub software on the computer but when it tries to search for the network connection via the BT software, it keeps saying the network card can not be detected. The network cable is plugged in and working. All the drivers are up to date.
I just got a brand new Cisco 2951 router that has built-in 3 gigabit interfaces cards. We want to add additonal 2 GE EHWIC-1GE-SFP-CU card to it. When it booted up and type show inventory, it did not detect the presence of the card. There was light on at the back of it. I have checked the compatibility on Cisco. The card is compatible with this router. Do we have to install the card with special instructions in order for the router to see it?
I am facing the problem as my CISCO router is detecting the RS 530 DCE cable as DTE 530idb. I am using this cable for X25 link connectivity. The same cable has worked for more than 1 hour with detecting the cable type as 530 DCE, but suddenly it stops the X25 data transfer. After that the cable type it is showing as DTE 530idb.
Below troubleshooting already carried out.
1. Changed the slot, but same output.
2. Removed the cable & reconnected, but same output.
3. Without connecting to the DTE device also, the cable type is showing as DTE 530idb
I have read numerous postings on this and ather sites about the Atheros AR9285 not being able to see wireless networks - and guess what I have the same problem!My laptop is an HP CQ61-312SA upgraded to 4GB of ram, and running Windows 7 Home Premium, I have tried everything I can find on this and other forum sites with no luck at all, including updating drivers, making sure Wlan is started etc and I have downloaded programs like Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and Insider = both of which show absolutely nothing.I have one other problem that might indicate a software problem - on the odd occasion when my computer does try to connect to a wireless network it resets to a blue scree which states that it is doing a 'physical memorey dump' and then restarts.My Atheros card has worked perfectly for 2 years, but I managed to purchase another it case it was faulty - with the same results. I also upgraded the memory in case of a memory fault.Rolling back drivers and using system restore does not work and ipconfig/all gives identical readouts to others with this problem.
Now my problem started happening after my desktop computer got unplugged. When I booted back up, I was unable to connect to my access point. Or find any of the other networks it can always see. I took my laptop and set up an ad hoc network and it came right up. The wireless access point has not been changed and it is perfectly fine. I've updated the drivers from Ralink, nothing. Uninstalled and rebooted, nothing. Checked the BIOS for any settings, nothing. Made sure the radio was turned on, nothing.
I have an issue with the Wireless Network. I have an old Compaq Presario V2000 laptop with WIN XP SP3. I formated the laptop OS and installed all the required drivers. I have a Dlink DIR 300 wireless router to connect to the Internet. I switched on the Wireless button; When I tried to connect to my network in Network connecction, I can't see my SSID displayed in available netowrk connections, though I can see others available connection there. I checked, whether my Router is broadcasting the SSID or not, and yes it is broadcasting. I tried with the security type as "WPA-PSK" with AES as well as with "WPA2-PSK" with AES, nothing worked for me. FYI, my room mate can easily access the network on his Sony Vaio CS 15 laptop with any of these two security type.I am fed up . I tried rebooting the router as well as my laptop multiple times.When I manually connect to my network SSID from "Wireless Network" tab in connection configuration, I see a "X" sign over my SSID with a Tower mark.
I have a Lenovo laptop, and all of a sudden the wireless just vanishes.I notice that just before it cuts out, the music I am playing stutters for about 10 - 15 seconds before it happens. when it happens it cant detect any wireless and when i try to trouble shoot the issue it just tells me to plug in an ethernet cable. I check the wireless adapter settings in the device manager and it's working fine, I uninstall and re install. same problem.what I do find is, if I put the laptop to sleep and wake it up, it SOMETIMES works, but I can be doing this for 20 minutes or after one attempt another weird thing is, if I start it in safe mode it works fine. I have tried to look for all solutions on the web, tried everything, nothing works. currently it's working, but who knows it may cut out at any point..
I think I am having problem with my network card I am running windows 7 with Dell wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card lots of times the signal is low and I get the error message no internet connectivity or some other error message that I am not being able to connect to the network provided by my wimax modem, Is there any program that I can download to test if there are any errors related to the network card or any way to fix this?
I am using Tplink TL-WR940N wireless router and recently attached the TPLINK PS110P paralell print server with it. I run the installation wizard on my Windows 7 System. But my router doesnt detect print server...
I have an HP Compaq nc6220 that I just got up and running after an extended stint as a paperweight.It had previously worked great in terms of connecting to the internet via wireless.Now nothing.It let's me go into Wireless Network Setup Wizard and offers to let me set up new networks, etc...But as far as I can tell, it isn't detecting any networks (though they are all around me and detected on other computers) and giving me the option to log in.There is no "Device Manager" option that I can find on this computer, which some forum posts have suggested to other people with similar problems.
I turned on my PC this morning and I found I could not connect to the Internet. I have a few other computers and devices in the house that are ALL connecting to the Internet fine. I've tried basic things like unplugging /re-plugging the Ethernet cable, resetting router, attempting to set up a new network, system restore, running norton anti-virus to detect any potential problems etc all of which haven't resolved the issue.
I also checked my device manager to see if my drivers were up to date and I found that under 'Other Devices' my Network Controller stated that the drivers were not installed. I'm not sure if this is the issue (considering my Internet was working absolutely fine less than 24hrs beforehand) but I can't search the Internet to automatically find the driver for obvious reasons.
I found a few people suggesting to use the hardware id to find the appropriate driver, any direct link to the driver. My network controller hardware id is below:
I have a Toshiba Satellite A665 Model Laptop. Which i bought 2 years back. I got a new wireless Internet connection few days back. but I am unable to use that network in my laptop. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS in my system.
I have an E4200 and a WD MyBook Essential 2TB. They were working very well for the longest time, detecting a speed of USB 2.0. I had to get a new desk, thus had to disconnect all my devices, including the router. After plugging everything back in, the router only detects USB 1.1, even though the device is clearly USB 2.0.
I have a very basic WLAN setup with a 2106 controller and 3 (will be 4) 1140 APs.As part of securing the network I have been testing the rouge detection. The system has no trouble detecting and shutting down honeypots. I would like to also automatically shut down Rouge on Wire points. The system sees my test AP just fine. And I have it completely open (no security). But the system never detects that the rouge is on our network so no action is taken. I can connect just fine to the test AP with no encription using DHCP and communicate with everything on the network just fine.Is there some setting I am missing that allows the APs to detect that an AP is on wire?
I just bought a Studio 17 (1749). Got it all configured. It is a beauty. It has the DW 1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card.
The computer detects the 2.4 GHZ network seamlessly. It is unable to detect the 5 GHZ network.
I have a NETGEAR RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router.
I have no problems connecting to this router with a Studio 15 laptop that I bought in December 2009. The Studio 15 can detect both the 2.4 and 5 GHZ seamlessly. I also have no problems connecting at 270 MB with a work Lenovo XP laptop with a Netgear Wireless-N USB stick.
I purchased the E1200 Linksys Wireless Router on 11/26/12. The router worked fine until today. Without reason, the router stopped reading the internet cable/the port on the router stopped detecting the signal from the cable connected to the modem. I can plug the cable from the modem directly into a laptop and the laptop picks up the signal (using it to write this). I swapped out several DSL cables to confirm it wasn't a cable issue and it does not make a difference. I tried rebooting the router, resetting the router, and yet nothing works.
I currently have a WRT54GS ver 1.0 running firmware version v2.07.1Ran through the whole installation procress as described in the firmware upgrade instructions pdf and it said Successful and hit continue. Hit continue, held the reset button down for 10 seconds then powered off the router for 30 seconds and plugged it back in.My firmware version in the router is still saying v2.07.1, I would assume it should say 4.21.4?
