Windows Unable To Populate View Available Wireless Networks
Jun 19, 2011
But I am connected to the internet somehow. There is no ethernet cord connected to my computer and the ethernet adapter is disabled. Also, when I add an SSID to my preffered networks list, it appears, but once I click OK, and bring up that same screen, it is no longer there. Yet, I am still connected to the internet. Wireless Zero Configuration is ON, The wireless adapter is ON, I am connected to the internet as I am typing this How do I get Windows to populate those two lists (the preferred wireless networks and available networks lists)?
I have a Dell PC from around 2005. I have this router: [url]....All the wires are connected to my PC but I don't get the notification icon, nor is it in network connections window (just my old broadband modem). I don't want to go wireless as such but just use WIFI on my cell/mobile when in the house if I have haven't got my PC on.
i have linksys network monitoring installed on my pc but have been using windows xp to monitor the network. However, after turning on the linksys monitor yesterday, I cannot go back to windows xp. When i do, I cannot view available wireless connections.
A friend of mine had a 802.11b netgear router and all of her computers were running just fine on it so she says. She bought and installed a 802.11n router and bought usb adapters for all her computers and all work, except one, a Dell Optiplex 330 that runs Windows XP.Some drivers were missing such as her Ethernet Controller and a chipset driver but I was able to install those from the Dell website. She had not yet bought a new USB adapter for the computer, I tried using my D-Link adapter and I can see the network in the D-Link connection manager but in Windows when I go to view a list of wireless networks, it doesn't show any. I cannot connect to the network from the D-Link connection manager.
There are a ton of posts about this issue, and I have tried everything. I have an ASUS Eee 1040 PC with an Atheros AR5700EG wireless network adapter running on Windows XP. I've had the computer for a couple years and it has worked fine, until recently. Using inSSIDer, I can view all wireless networks within range, but using Windows, I cannot connect to any wireless networks. It gives me the message that "No wireless networks were found in range." I had a few hotspots that I would regularly use and they are not showing up in the list of preferred networks. I know for certain that some of the hotspots that are within range are indeed broadcasting their ssid. I can only connect if I manually add a hotspot as a preferred network and configure it with the correct security settings. Even then, viewing available wireless networks gives nothing, and Windows doesn't remember the hotspot. Here is what I have tried:restarted Wireless Zero Configuration service checked windows files haven't changed using sfc /scannow in a command window updated the driver for the wireless adapter rebooted the computer kicked and screamed
I'm having an HP laptop with windows 7 installed on it, but cannot view available wireless network. under network and settings i can see the wireless network card, which means the wireless drivers has been installed. but can't view my wireless network but other computers are viewing my wireless network.
I have a Dell inspiron that is about 3 years old. About a month ago I wanted to connect to a wireless network, but there were none visible. I was in a coffee shop where I know there was a strong signal, but nothign showed up. I checked with a friend who was with me, and not only was he connected, he could see 5 other networks in the area - I showed none, even though when I put my mouse over the icon in the lower right of the try, I got a message that there were wireless networks available.Even at home, where it connected automatically, if I clicked on view wireless networks, ny own network that I was connected to wouldn't even show up.
When i first set up my wireless i could see it but couldnt authenicate and connect.I was using fire fox as my browser. I could also see my neighbors network. I downloaded internet explorer and now i cant see either one. i have a program calle dconnectivity doctor and it can see both networks. Iam not a computer whiz .
What changed on my Win XP wireless network connections, but I used to be able to see about 5 wireless networks in the neighborhood, including mine. Now it only shows mine. Not that I can connect to any of the others (don't have the security codes), but I find it strange that it used to show all of them, but all but my own have suddenly disappeared. Did I check some setting somewhere (that I can't find now) saying to show only the strongest connection?
I'm working off a three-year old HP notebook, dv-2000 series, running Windows 7 Professional, 32-bit.I suddenly lost wireless connectivity. I can still see wireless networks available - unsecured and secured, five-bar signals - but trying to connect to them fails. This is not a matter of connecting to the network but not having internet access, but rather being completely unable to establish any connection.Troubleshooter says Windows is unable to determine anything. It says check the access point, but I cannot connect to any network - home, starbucks, etc. I have reinstalled both network drivers (ethernet and wireless adapter).I have plugged into a wired connection and updated Windows to the most recent set of updates.I've obviously reset the machine, toggled the wireless, etc.I've reset the TCP/IP stack.I've checked that the WLAN service is running, as well as the DNS and DHCP client services. ipconfig says the wireless adapter has DHCP and Autoconfiguration enabled. Device manager says everything is working fine.
Trying to create a wi fi zone in my apartment from my Virgin cable installation. Following their instructions on how to do this I can't succeed as the "view available Wireless networks" option does not appear on Windows XP
why does my laptop not even show any view wireless networks.In the wireless connection status box, it only says properties, disable but where it should say view wireless networks there is nothing! It is blank. Why is this? And how do I get it to view my wireless networks? I have tried a wireless usb adapter which I use for my other laptop. That usb adapter is comptabile with both WEP and WPA and the computer does not pick up the software. I don't know what else to do.
Have installed a TP-Link TL-WN722N wireless USB adapter.O/Sis Win XP SP3.Np options are showing for Wireless networks under Network Connections.Wireless Zero Conifguration is on.When I run a QSS app I can see neighbours network but not my own (My equipment doesn't support QSS) so the card and driver are working.
I have an Acer 3810T laptop and am running Windows 7 on it.The problem I've had is my WiFi has been unstable. For example for 5 minutes or sometimes up to an hour I can easily find wifi networks in range of my laptop but then out of nowhere it disappears and I don't find any networks but any other WiFi device will find my router so I know it's laptop related.I did some research on Google and found out this is an issue others have had with Windows 7 and it seems to be something to do with when updates are installed. I followed the advice to remove my WiFi drivers and reinstall them so I downloaded a file for the Intel drivers from Acer's website. I went into Control Panel and removed 2 devices that were related to WiFi. I then did a scan for hardware and found one wifi device, an Intel WiFI Link 5100AGN. I installed the driver for this one. The problem is I know I removed two and this is the only one the scan found and I can't remember the name of the other wifi device/driver I removed.Unfortunately ever since I did this my WiFi isn't working. In the control panel it shows all drivers are installed and working but when I click on the bars at the bottom of my screen no wifi networks show. I have tried going into the Network and Sharing Center and for example I select set up a connection or network and when I select Manually Connect to a wireless network it states "An Unexpected Error Occured" so I know something is missing that's allowing the WiFI to work.
I am having some trouble trying to connect to a different network. It seems when I click connect to a network there aren't any networks listed. Now, I know there are networks available near me because I have connected to them before it just seems that now some service or setting is disabled on my laptop that is preventing me from viewing other networks near me. Not sure what it could be but I have tried figuring it out and I couldn't.
I'm trying to transfer filed from my laptop to my pc but I'm having problems. First of all both comps are running on windows 7 64 bit. Its weird because out of the 4 computers I have in the house, all of them can see each other EXCEPT my laptop, which cant be seen by any other computers, and when I'm on the laptop I can't see any others.I setup a home network with pass protect off, sharing on etc... on my laptop and no other computer can see it. I think somethings up with the connection though. On this computer I'm on right now, my connection sais "network" and not my actualy connection name. On my laptop, (I have a ethernet plugged in, wireless works also, tried both) when I'm connected it sais Bell~ (my internet name). So my laptop shows my internet name even when its connected through ethernet, but my desktop sais network, not the name
Trying to get on internet in Windows 7. Have connected to wireless network. Am hardwired to router and yet cannot connect to Internet. Wireless Network Connection 2 is not connected and therefore not going to the Internet
i am unable to view all the computers in my work group by which sharing is also not working. whenever i tries to open shared folder in other computer this particular message appears ( no network provider accepted the given network path)
I was on the computer, it went into standby due to low battery. Turned it back on, and it wouldnt connect to the net as it couldnt find any connections. Tried repairing - to no avail. Checked all my networks were working, and enabled one that wasn't. Restarted computer still no connections being found to connect to.Windows XP, Asus, Service Pack 3, Version 2002.
I'm using Windows 7, and when I lived at my house I was able to connect to wireless networks without a problem. I just moved today into my brother's old apartment and for some reason I can't connect to his wireless network. I can see it along with a number of other wireless networks, but I'm unable to connect to any of them. When I attempt to connect to a network absolutely nothing happens. Typically at the bottom right corner of my screen something will pop up saying it's trying to connect, but for some reason that isn't popping up. I know it's not a problem with the router because I'm unable to connect to any of the networks, and I also had no trouble when I tried to connect to it with my laptop.
Windows XP on an older Dell Latitude. All wireless settings appear to be on, yet "no wireless networks are found in range" All other devices in the house see the same 3 networks (mine, mifi, and next door), so this is specific to this machine.
Also, I normally keep this laptop docked, 95% of the time, and earlier in the week disabled the wireless (right click on icon, disable) as I normally do when connected to the dock, since it seems to perform faster (no testing, just my opinion)
Other factors: The computer got undocked without normal undock procedure taking place.
Don't know if this is related, but the sound wasn't working either the last few days I have redocked, rebooted, restarted, checked every possible config I can think of, checked the router to be sure that my device was still listed, etc.
I have a desktop with windows Xp and I too have no wireless networks come up in the box on the right hand side, I know the wireless Linsky cisco wifi is working as I have connected it to another laptop with Vista, but have tried everything to get it wireless and nothing works the Desktop works fine when hard wired?
Can I populate all 4 EHWIC slots in a Cisco 2911 router with VWIC3-4MFT-T1/E1 cards supporting clear channel T1 data traffic?Or do I need a higher performance router inthe 3900 series to do this?The data sheets lead me to the conclusion that I can but I just want to validate this.
I have an Alienware M17X-R3 and I’ve been experiencing several networking problems with it recently- most importantly that I can’t connect to any wireless network. It detects all the networks in the area, but when I select and try to connect to one nothing happens. I can still use a wired Internet connection, though. “Troubleshoot problems” or “Diagnose” just tells me that I have no preferred wireless networks. When I go to the Network and Sharing Center, the “Set up a new connection or network” button doesn’t do anything. When I go from there to “Manage Wireless Networks” the “Add” button doesn’t do anything.
I’ve tried disabling and enabling my DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card, and reinstalling the drivers. I’ve disabled the “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” option on all my network devices. I’ve used a system restore. I’ve run a scan with Malwarebytes and my computer had crashed by the time I looked at it again thirty or so minutes later; it had tried to restart but was unable to because there was “No bootable device”. I powered it off and started it up again and it worked fine. I also ran a Superantispyware scan that completed successfully without finding anything and immediately crashed, but restarted normally.
A few other things that may or may not be related:
-When I boot I get a message that says “Could not reconnect all network drives”
-When I booted I used to get a message from GoogleCrashHandler64.exe that said “C:Windowssystem32dbghelp.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.” When I went to msconfig and disabled all non-Microsoft processes under services and startup I no longer got the message.
I'm going to list out my problem, to make it faster to understand.1] My domain name is registered with a company, X.2] My webhosting is hosted by another company, Y.3] My web developer, Mr. Z is trying to do his bit and upload my website.Here's what happens:Mr. Z tells me that he's not able to upload my website and is getting the error "Connection timed out" and "Could not connect to server" on his FileZilla or something. He also tells me that there is a problem with my domain registry.Now, Company Y tells me that the domain name's A-records has to be pointed to the correct IP address [which is, of course, the webhosting IP I bought.]Company X tells me to login to my account and add an A-record pointing it to the correct IP address. I did that.But still Mr. Z tells me he's getting the same error and is not able to connect to the domain name.Now, when I ping my website on MS command prompt, I get a "Request timed out" error.
