I have a RTL8187 wireless adapter. First of all, it did not come with windows 7 driver so it was a pain finding one. I found the latest ones though, but it seems it doesnt work (no networks will show). I have to choose the pretty outdated drivers, and it cant connect to WPA, WPA2, and hell, even open networks.
have a dell inspiron 1545 with windows vista. Sometimes at coffee shops I cannot connect to the internet. It says that I have local access only. This also has happened when I use my hardwire internet connection. Then at times it does work on the same network. It is not a network problem as I can connect with my iphone or other devices.
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.
My wireless recognizes my home networks, but bounces consistently from "acquiring network" to "automatic" and never connects me to the web. Just to test it out, I installed the Belkin WiFi USB Adapter to run it as a separate wireless, and it reacts the same way.
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.
I haven't had internet in a couple of months until recently when I got cable broadband and a TP-Link wireless router. The setup works fine with a ADSL cable but I can't get my laptop to connect to any wireless networks including my new router. If I run a windows troubleshooting diagnostic it says I have no preferred networks. If I go to "manage wireless networks" the box is empty and if I click "add" NOTHING happens. I can see my wireless networks in the networks box on the taskbar but when I click on them nothing happens (secured or unsecured) I'm pretty sure the problem is not with the router but maybe with the adapter or the pc itself. Others can connect to the wireless network
I messed with some startup programs on msconfig and made sure I didn't disableanything that I didn't know much about, then it told me to restart my computerAfter restarting my laptop I couldn't find any networks at all, there are usually, around 20, and my sound didn't work. After that I tried to enable all of the ones I disabled before, but I am still getting the same problem.
I've formatted my computer(Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit), then I downloaded my wireless adapter driver from my manufacturer's website, installed it and tried to join my home network but it couldn't connect it(or my neighbor's network, which I could access before formatting the computer).
I am trying to connect to a different network, but for some reason when I click "Connect To", where it tells me to click to join another wireless network, it just shows me this: and does not show me the Wireless Networks that are available (I am not sure what it is called)
I'm building a desktop PC from scratch, and since up until now I've always taken this for granted with a laptop, I'm a bit confused what it is I need to connect to the internet. First of all, I live in a student residence, so up until now I was able to just use an ethernet cable, connecting the wall to my laptop to gain access to the internet service I'm paying for, an I was also able to connect to wireless networks. So my question is what do I need to buy to get the same connectivity?Do I need to buy a network card, so that I will be able to connect from the wall to my computer and gain access to the internet (not wireless), or do motherboards have that capability already these days? This is the motherboard I'm buying, and if I buy a network card, this is probably the one I'm going with. Or should I go with one that has the IEEE 802.1p, as well?
And then for the gaining access to wireless networks part. Do I just buy a router and that's it? For example, would buying just this router enable me to connect to wireless networks? Or can I just buy this PCI adapter?Would it also be possible to go from the wall directly to the router, then to the computer gain access to both the non-wireless and wireless networks?
I'm living in Australia for a few months and my accommodation does not have a phone line, so I've been using mobile broadband dongles instead. This worked fine until recently, when I abruptly became unable to access the internet. The laptop recognises the dongle and seems to connect, but the download/upload speeds are at a constant zero bytes per second (I have tried to ping Google while 'connected' but received no response). I have tried two dongles from Dodo and one from Telstra, with the same results. Initially, I assumed that this was simply due to signal strength, but each of the three dongles I have tested work fine on another laptop in the same location (I'm using one of them to post this). I have also tried using the dongles with my laptop in other locations, including the city centre, but with no success.
Also, I seem to be unable to connect to any wireless networks (e.g. McDonalds wifi) - the laptop detects the network ok, and seems to be connected, but I am unable to access any web pages etc. In the Network and Sharing Centre, the laptop is connected with the wifi network, but the wifi network does not seem to be connected to the internet. I'm unsure if this is related to the above problem, however.Like I say, everything seems to have been working fine up until about a week agoIf
I have suddenly started having issues recognising and connecting to a wireless network at home on my laptop. We have 2 wireless networks at home as we use an additional D-Link router through the powerlines. (DHP-W307AV PowerLine Homeplug AV Wireless N Starter Kit)I used to be able to connect to both but now I can just connect to the main wireless router. Other laptops and smart phones in the house can connect to both. I was wondering if this had anything to do with Norton 360 so I have used their removal tool to get rid of it. Unfortunately I still can't connect to the second network.

As of last night, I cannot connect to any of the wireless networks I use every day (my personal home network or my school's WPA2).
The signal strength is very good, but it says "Limited Access" next to the network name. Apparently "Limited" means "No" because I am not connected. Here's what happened:Lavasoft Ad-Aware was blocking a site that I needed to access. I haven't used Ad-Aware in months, and it did not even appear to be running. So uninstalled it with Add/Remove programs in the control panel. BUT, mid-way through the uninstallation, I got a blue screen and my computer restarted. When my computer booted back up, I could no longer connect to my home's wireless. I'm at school now and I cannot connect here either. Ad-aware is gone from the add/remove programs list, but there is still an Ad-Aware folder in Program Files. The folder still has a bunch of stuff in it, including adaware.exe. I dont see an uninstaller (but i havent really investigated that yet). so now i can't connect to any network. Here's What I've TriedRan troubleshooter. Useless. Turned off my netbook's wireless. turned it back on. Device manager says my Network Adapters are working fine. No yellow or red icons next to them. also tried resetting stuff with the command prompt. something about winsock and netsh. I don't know what I was doing though. just following instructions from other people on yahoo answers when i googled the problem.
So we just got a new router for our higher speed internet. The modem is an Actiontec Q1000 from Qwest. We used to live out in the middle of nowhere, so we never needed to secure our internet. Now we live close to neighbors and we need to encrypt the wireless. When I try any encryption, however, I can't connect at all. I have tried temporarily having it unlocked and I could connect without a problem. It also works fine when I'm using my Ethernet cord.
Heres my IPCONFIG.

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 manage a network using Windows Server 2008 r2 that connects to the Internet (ISP) through a wireless radio antenna. We have three other locations that also connect to the same ISP through wireless radio antennas on the roof of each building. Those locations are windows XP machines. Each location is separated by more than 1,000 ft and do not have line of sight to each other. I'm wanting the XP machines to be able to logon to the domain of the server and access shared files
This has me baffled: since the weekend I've been unable to connect to certain networks. Previously I could connect to any available network as normal, but all of a sudden I can't get onto certain network connections despite the fact they are available and at full signal strength. Some connections are fine, others are not.Something odd happens when I unsuccessfully try to connect: a window pops up but in the blink of an eye disappears again before I have time to register whether it's an error message or what.I've checked for Window updates and am fully updated, I've run my virus scan (Microsoft Security Essentials), and I've performed Windows Network Diagnosis to no avail.otel overseas and am now feeling the problem as I can't get onto the hotel's free wifi and am having to use my iPhone as a personal hotspot which is costing me a bomb
Recently, I upgraded my PC into basically a completely new machine. Because the harddrive that I planned on using was IDE, and my IDE-Sata adapters weren't being recognized on BIO, I used a fresh sata harddrive and a copy of Windows XP Professional.
It booted fine, all parts recognized, only now I cant connect to any LAN networks. I only get the option for VGN, Broadband and Dial-up networking. Using a laptop at the moment
I've tried two different usb adapters, and connecting the LAN cable directly into the PC. The cable works on another desktop in the house, but my PC wouldnt let me make the LAN network.
I have two router as well as two switch. 1st router is Dlink's router, I used this router for sharing files and folders and also connect to NET. And 2nd router used for Windows Media Encoder to upload my audio data to other computer.My first router is connected with a 16 port DLink switch, and also 2nd router is connect with another 8 Port Dlink router. Now, 1 computer has two LAN card and it connect with both router through switch. But both is not working at a time, but if i disable one LAN another is worked and vice versa.
my pc just arrived this morning.. Booted it up, installed windows. All good. On the desktop now, and can't connect to my home network.. In fact I can't connect to any networks.. Windows tells me there are none available, but i'm using my laptop right next to my pc and there should be at least 5 connections including mine..
I DO HAVE a wireless card in there... but is there something you need to do to like activate it / turn it on? I can see the card listed in device manager.. it says it is working properly. Just can't connect to anything!
All i wanted to do was do some browsing on my new pc but looks like I will have to wait.
I purchased a network storage device and would like every one i the house to be able to access it.I have attached a small diagram on how everything is connected.The modem given to me by my ISP has only 2 lan ports i can use(lan1 and Lan2)This modem is configure with the IP range 192.168.2.XXXOn this i have connected a netgear router and have configured it with the internal network IP range 192.168.1.XXXOriginal i had ALL PC's and devices connected to this router and everythign worked fine, but when using download software i.e. P2P the speeds would cause the router to crash and i had to go and power restart it to work. Becuase of this i connected MY PC directly to my ISP's modem so i dont keep crashing the router.
This all works fine, but i recently purchased a network storage drive that i would like every one to have access in the house.Becuase the Storage drive and my PC are on the IP range 192.168.2.xxx and everything connected to the router is on the IP range 192.168.1.xxx how can i give everyone access to the storage drive ??I know if i reconnect my PC and drive back on the netgear router it will work but i cant do that becuase of the location and becuase of the original issue of when downloading on my PC it would block the router.
I want to connect two networks together via the internet and VPN. I currently have two Windows 2k8 Servers housed at both locations. I've tried to do as much as I could myself but clients on both sides cannot access each other. I set-up the Remote Router function on both Servers and connected them but I still cannot ping or access any of the remote resources on that network.
I have 3 computers running XP, one running Windows 7 and 3 smart phones all connecting to a Netgear JWNR2000v1 Wireless- N 300 Router. All of them connected fine until about a month ago the XP machines all started having problems, until finally none of them would connect or could even detect the router at all. The smart phones and Windows 7 computer have never had a single problem connecting. My daughter has tried to use one of the XP machines at some coffee shops with no success, I assume they are "N" networks. I pulled out an old "G" router and they can all connect to that one without a problem. The XP machines are all different, one Compaq, one Dell, and one Toshiba. None of them have any detectable viruses, using Eset and Windows Security Essentials.
I use multiple computers in my house, I was just wondering, how would I go about connecting to 2 different networks on Windows 7 simultaneously?I have a router/modem downstairs which is connected to the internet & all of our computers, and I also have a modem/router in my bedroom that isn't connected to the internet, but I'd like to use it to share files and other things throughout my house.I've quite easily managed to connect to both networks at the same time, but as soon I connect to the wired network (the one without internet connection) I lose connection to the internet, even though I'm still connected to the wireless network which is connected to the internet.I've read a few different articles and posts about this same issue, but I can't find how to be connected to both & still have a connection.
i have Verizon network at home and office; at home i connect fine; at work it is connected but randomly goes from low to excellent but cant bring up the internet; all other laptops connect just fine except this one..
My laptop can see available networks, but is unable to connect to any of them.I have run Microsoft Security Essentials and the scan comes back fine, ran CC Cleaner as well as Malware Bytes and those scans both come back fine as well.I have also re-seated my wifi card, as well as attempted a TCP/IP stack repair option.However none of these fixed my issue. What could be preventing my laptop from connecting to a network? I have also tried to boot into Safe Mode w/ Networking, and the pc is unable to connect there either.I have also disabled all security on my router, it is just an open network no security, broadcasting the SSID.
I have 2 nics in my win7 system, NIC 1 connect to leased line and NIC2 is connected to organization LAN for internet. Both the ip add are in same subnet. when both the cables are plugged in to nics, leased line link connected to nic1 goes down. It wouldn't come up untill the cable from nic 2 is plugged out.Basically i wish to be connected to both the networks simultaneously.
I just configured a 2 computers into a routers and and connected them to each other. My computer is them connected to one of the routers(configured PCs). The computer uses the default gateway of the router interface it is connected to. A ping to the default gateway repplies positively. A ping to the second interface to the same router goes successful but a ping to the first interface of the second router gives the "request time out" respond and a ping to the second interface of the second router gives the "destination host unreachable" respond.
