Dec 5, 2012

My attempts to connect me and my girlfriend's laptops together for some LAN gaming with an ethernet cable has had some odd problems, with my LAN connection showing up as an Unidentified, Public Network which I cannot edit in any way whatsoever. I'm at a loss. I've tried setting a static IP and it didn't appear to work at all.The network bridge is to use my laptop as a wireless adaptor for my Xbox.

Cisco Wireless :: WAP4410n Multiple SSID Not Showing

Jun 2, 2010

We just got a WAP4410n and cant seem to get multiple SSID's to show up when searching for them.Only SSID1 shows up in Kismet or any other type of Wifi detector software, is it supposed to be like this?I would imagine that it should display both SSID's
Instead of just Mynetwork1, I have tried everything i can think of to connect to the second one but nothing seems to work.

Dell Inspiron 1545 Upgraded To Windows 7 - SSID Not Showing Up?

Apr 9, 2012

I recently upgraded a relatives Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop from Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit! To Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit. Previously this was connected wireless to a netgear router. On upgrading the OS i have found that the previous network is no longer showing up in the list of avalible networks even though a number of other devices can still connect and see the broacast of the SSID. As other networks are showing up and the laptop can succesfully connect to others I dont see this as being a driver issue. I have checked the router configuration for broadcast of SSID and MAC filtering. My next step will be to connect the router and laptop via ethernet.

My laptop is unable to connect to the internet. It recognizes my wireless connection (public network) as "unidentified network" and Access: "Local only." I've tried using many other solutions but I still haven't found a way to fix this. My other laptops, computers, and gaming devices are able to connect to my linksys router except for this laptop.

Vista No Internet Connection And Unidentified Network?

Mar 13, 2011

My Computer has been working perfectly fine, the connection super and the network perfect. But for some reason I go to sleep everything's fine and now zilch. It say's im connected to my network but that it's unidentified and I can't get on to my Internet. It's just that computer though, everything else like this laptop can connect to the network and the internet. No changes were made so i'm really not sure what has caused this. Nothings new either. My signal strength is excellent as well. Password Protected sharing has been off, has this compromised me?

Router Is On But Wireless Network Is Not Showing Up?

Oct 21, 2011

Some background first. Last night I went trolling around for a solution to an ip address conflict message I receive when I try to go onto Xbox live via a network bridge on my laptop. What I eventually ended up doing was going into my tp-link wireless router settings (not sure of the exact model number as I am not home right now) and reserving two different ip addresses for my laptop and my Xbox using their MAC addresses. It didn't appear to do anything ( now I think possibly because my Xbox needs the same ip as my laptop?). Anyways I tried to go onto Xbox live and it worked at the start (as it always does) and then 30 minutes in, the ip address conflict message came up (usually meaning a disconnect from Xbox live is imminent). But I actually ended up staying online for another 3 hours until the Internet crashed.

Upon further investigation I noticed that my wireless network was not even showing up on my computer, my phone, or any of my roommates computers. I went upstairs to check the wireless router and it was seemingly working correctly (i.e. no flashing lights or anything). Not quite sure what to do. I would go back and change the router settings but I don't think I can without a connection to it.

Unidentified Network With Limited Connectivity On Windows Vista

Jan 2, 2013

It is running on windows vista home premium 32 bit sp1, if that matters.I have just had my computer's motherboard changed recently. After reinstalling the wireless adapter, the internet works! Until I found when I came back later that my internet shows unidentified network with limited connectivity. It happened when I was not around and my computer went into hibernate mode after downloading firefox installer. There is no antivirus installed, so it can't be a problem. My wireless adapter is the usb type,brand tplink: TL-WN721N. Tried a few methods suggested by the internet but nothing works: unchecking the iv6 box, follow the steps that starts with the regedit part, uninstall and reinstall the driver for the wireless adapter, fix the ip address.There is no problem with the network as the rest of the computers and laptops in the house has no network issues. But all of them are running on windows 7.

D-Link DIR-615 :: Wireless Network Not Showing Up Anymore

May 24, 2011

I've tried changing the settings on my DLink wireless router, resetting it and my cable modem (by unplugging them and plugging them in again), and even restoring my iPod, but I cannot find my home wireless network! Both my iPod and my PC can find other networks, but not my own.My network is WPA-2 only, which my iPod should be able to see. The cipher type is TKIP. My wireless channel is 2.437GHz (channel 6, I can't change it). I even tried resetting my network settings on my ipod, with no luck.My router is a DLink DIR 615 wireless router and my computer is a PC that runs Windows 7. The router is able to connect to the internet; it's just the wireless portion that isn't working.

Wireless Network Not Showing On IBM Thinkpad Running Windows XP?

Aug 12, 2012

I've come across an older IBM ThinkPad 2687 via work that was just collecting dust, and it was able to connect to a wireless network.Due to other issues with the machine, I had to do a complete refresh on it, so it only had the XP OS.

I had to update the drivers to make sure other things like connecting to a flash drive, and connecting to a local area was possible, which is how I'm able to connect now.However, I've been unable to access the wireless connection within Network connections. I've downloaded the different drivers from the Lenovo IBM ThinkPad website, but still no luck.

WMP600N - Wireless Network Adapter Not Showing Up In Device Manager For PC

Sep 13, 2012

I'm trying to install my WMP600N wireless adapter. It's not showing up in my device manager. The thing is I've installed it in the past and ran into some driver issue which made me give up. But it showed up in device manager before so I know it's not a dead card. Right now, plug and play isn't working. How do I get a Wireless Connection to show up in my device manager? This is for my PC. I also have a couple drivers I could use but I don't know how to install them because they are not exe files. I can't select upgrade drivers because the network adapter isn't showing up in the first place.

I have tried unplugging and replugging, and also scanning for hardware changes in device manager.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 Is Showing Different Named Wifi Network?

Jun 29, 2012

I have a strange problem with my Linksys E1000. When I try to connect wireless, there is a network with an excellent signal, but it has the name "CiscoI1593" and it asks for a password which I don't know. My original network does not appear for some reason when I try to connect wirelessly. I do see my original network name when I use an ethernet cable through the E1000.
It's not possible, where I live, for this "CiscoI1593" network to belong to someone else, it just seemed like it renamed my network to this and also wants some different password. 
I think this may be due to something I did. My internet occasionally cuts out and it's usually something wrong with the modem or router, so I typically unplug and press the reset button on both until it begins to work again. This is the first time i've had this problem though, and I have unplugged and pressed the reset button on my router many times.
There is also a button in the middle of the front of the router that looks like a refresh symbol, but I don't really know what it is, pushing it doesn't seem to do anything but make a solidly-on light become blinky.

Cisco Wireless :: 1142 AP Showing Maximum Of Only 54mbps In Network Info Dialogue Box

Mar 18, 2013

I have encountering a problem with a new installation at my clients side recently.We have a 5508 wlc and a bunch of Laps connected to it.Recently we associated a 1142ap to the same controller.The issue we are facing is that , the client laptops that are connected to THIS ap are showing maximum of only 54mbps in their network information dialogue box.Initially i couldn't understand why this could happen.But after a bit of research , i came to know that this could happen because of ``unticked`` data rates in the controller , or because of not using wpa2 with aes as the security standard for N-series access points.Now i have enabled all data rates in the High Throughput section as well as enabled the correct encryption standard.But still the issue persists.We have checked with multiple laptops , to rule out the possibility of a faulty n/w card

Network Not Showing Up?

Aug 2, 2011

I can connect to internet only while wired. my wireless is no longer working. I have a network set up, named with my last name but it does not appear as a network i can connect to in the system tray. Instead there is the name of a network i did not establish (neighbors network??)I cannot connect to that without a security key whihc makes sense. I went into Manage Wireless Networks and mine islisted and marked as connect automatically.

No LAN Showing In Network Connections?

Aug 19, 2012

I have a desktop PC where the only internet connection is via a 'USB mobilebroadband dongle'.I have connected the PC via ethernet cable to the ethernet port on a d-link wifi router (which isn't connected to the internet).I'd like to be able to connect other non-PC devices (eg my mobile phone) to the router via wifi in order to connect to the internet.To do this, I gather that one possible solution is to bridge the LAN (not connected to internet) and dongle (connected to internet) connections.My first problem is that in 'Network Connections', only my USBdongle connection is shown (see pic) - there is no icon for the LAN/ethernet. In device manager, the "Atheros AR5007EG Wireless NetworkAdapter" and "Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller" are both showing without any ?

Other info:I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 on a HP Pavilion All-in-one MS200 desktop.

I reloaded XP on an old laptop I have, a Toshiba Satellite, and it works fine. Problem is when I try to connect to my wireless network, it comes up as being security protected...and it isn't...and never has been. I have other computers connecting just fine, but I can't seem to figure this one out. I don't have a key to enter as there isn't one! I installed a USB wireless adapter, and it works fine, but I don't want to use the adapter on the laptop.

Network Shares Not Showing In Client?

May 18, 2012

I recently did a clean install of Win 7 64-bit Pro on my workstation. This was previously connected to my DNS (Windows server 2008 R2) which i use to host my files, music etc for my home network. I was previously able to see my network shares in windows explorer (client side) but now I don't. If i go to search box and \server the shared folders will then be displayed in windows explorer under network and i have access to them. I've done a small amount of digging but have so far found nothing to point me in the right direction. So while i have access i would like to be able to point windows media player to my shared music on the server, which i can't do now because I have no way to navigate to that folder. Same with other programs such as outlook, when i want to attach a file to an email i'm not able to navigate to the share. Weird as i have access to the share by search \server?

XP Computer Showing Up Twice In Windows 7 Network Map?

Aug 15, 2012

Have an older laptop running XP Home, Desktop running XP Pro with printer on it. Wireless network setup and doing fine for bidirectional file share and print share from old lappie to desktop. All worked great.Bought a brand new high end laptop with Win 7 (not impressed). Finally got the Win 7 new one to recognize both older computers on the Win 7 computer and was able to access file share and print on the desktop. Thought I was doneNope, now while I can see the old lappie and it can see it in the Win7 computer both directions give me cannot access the drive or specific files even though it "sees" themAll files and disks are set to full share. No password is required or any homegroup is setup on the win 7 system. I've been in the bus. a long time so you know I'm at the end of the rope. All searches through knowledge base and the web have yielded no results to this.I did find an absolute to this in insuring that both systems have the same workgroup. Changed the old lappie to the right name. Made no difference in access (after several reboots). Obviously can't run Easy Transfer with this situation.

Now problem #2. I changed the old lappies workgroup to the same as the Win7 computer in the hopes of fixing this. Made no difference but now I have two iterations my XP laptop in the Win 7 system.When selected, the info for one has the old workgroup and selecting the other shows the new workgroup (matching the Win7 workgroup).Anyway, throwing up my hands in frustration and disgust. Find no way to even dump the old workgroup map listing. Jeez. Sure glad they (M/S) made this better?
