Wireless Signal Is Detected But Computer Doesn't Connect

Apr 6, 2011

I have a an HP Pavilion dv6000t notebook running Windows Vista.I have a wireless router at home and connect to the wireless signal using both this computer and my other computer that I use for work. Yesterday, out of the blue, my laptop stopped connecting to my home wireless signal.It detects the signal, but when I click on it to connect (something I shouldn't have to do, as it is configured to connect automatically), I get a message saying that it couldn't connect and suggests that the signal strength is low.I know that the signal strength is fine as I am connected just fine on my work computer.I can plug my laptop into the router using a cable and it connects just fine that way, so the only problem is with the wireless signal. I have restarted the computer, modem, and router, to no avail.

Re-connect Home Wireless Signal To Computer?

Apr 9, 2012

how to re-connect my home wireless signal to my computer. The wireless signal is strong and the other computers in my house will connect with no issues. My computer connected with no problems to my wireless signal at work. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on a Lenovo Idea Pad Win7 PC. The computer was connecting yesterday and then was shut down. The next time I got on, ,it wouldn't connect. I've tried re-establishing the network as a new network, but it says the network already exists. The profile is the same as our other computers and nothing has been changed there. When I disconnect from the wireless signal and ask to re-connect it says that the it is trying to connect, but can't make the connection. I'm looking for any way to re-build the profile so it will connect and work again.

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.

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.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WUSB600N Won't Detect Adapter But Computer Is Still Detected

Mar 24, 2011

I recently upgraded my computer (not laptop) from Windows XP to Windows 7-32 bit. I redownloaded and installed Network Magic, Linksys Wireless Manager and my WUSB600N adapter properly (I hope). Now everything was working fine, I was able to get onto my network through the adapter but today I noticed that the Linksys Wireless Manager seemed to not connect to my network, instead my computer some how did it without  the wireless manager. Now when I tried to connect to a network through the Wireless Manager it said Error: 211 and said My Adapter may not be installed properly and told me to remove the adapter and attach it back after 20 seconds. I tried that but again my computer connected to the network STILL through the computers own manager not through the Linksys Wireless Manager. That was still saying Error 211. So the problem really is that the Linksys Wireless Manager wont detect my adapter but my computer is still able to detect it and connect to my network.

Gigaset SE567/8 - Computer Doesn't Connect To Internet On Startup

Sep 19, 2011

I'm running Vista on my Desktop, and the router is a Gigaset SE567/8 Series. Whenever I turn my computer on, it will connect to the network, but not to the internet. I get the caution symbol in the task bar with the network icon, and it show the "identifying ( mySSID )". I have to unplug the router for 30 seconds in order to make it work correctly. This router was just installed by my ISP the other day and its been acting this way since then.

Computer Is Not Detected On PS3?

Jan 16, 2012

I stream movies from my computer to my PS3On my playstation it shows Windows Media Player from two seperate computers on the network but not mine.So it is an issue with my particular computer/setting and not necessarily the router or the PS3 I obviously tried the program I always use (Vuze) which did not work, and then I downloaded PS3 Media Server and that did not work.The programs do not recognize my PS3 and vice versa I use Symantec Endpoint as my Virus Protection and turned it off, so i believe this is not the issue....but im still skeptical of it due to that is the only thing that has changed since it last work (I reinstalled it)

Cat5 From Computer Receiving Wireless Signal?

Jul 18, 2011

I have a computer that is directly connected to my internet broadband service via my router and modem. From that computer, by use of a router (of course), I have a wireless connection to another desktop computer in my home, about 90 feet away.From that remote wireless internet broadband connection, I'd like to connect to yet a third computer. That third computer will be 200 more feet away. I have a direct Cat5 wire from the wireless computer desktop to that point 200 feet away. I'm thinking of adding a computer at that point.So, that raises my question: Can a computer receiving a wireless signal, then relay or transmit that signal to another computer that is "hard wired" to it via a Cat5 wire?

Wireless Network Detected But Can't Connect

Apr 28, 2011

I have had this problem now for a couple of weeks, can't seem to find a solution, even after trying all sorts of things I have seen on the web. I can not seem to get the wireless internet to work on my computer. The problem started a while ago and since then I've actually formatted my hard drive and reloaded Windows XP and everything else back onto my computer. I ahve tried connecting to the wireless at home and at work and neither is working. My computer can see the networks when but can not connect to them. I used to have no problem connecting to my home network, I have not ever connected tot he one at work, just thought I'd try it when I couldn't get it to work at home.

1. Updating my LAN driver (I've tried numerous ones and the one that works best is the one that came with my windows XP)

2. Ran both Spybot and AVG to check on spyware/malware/virus and there was not a single thing on either one.

3. Tried many combinations of setup configurations with my home wireless set up. It is a password protected hookup that I have never had problems with before.So in seeing several posts on here I have the following information from my CMD

Windows IP Configuration
Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : gateway-ta06zkr
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Broadcast

Wireless Networks Detected But Can't Connect

Mar 5, 2011

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

New Built Computer - Wireless Doesn't Work

Oct 7, 2011

I finished building my computer today, installed a fresh os and all the necessary drivers that came with the dvds provided, yet the wireless card doesn't even appear anywhere in the computer. The ethernet cabled one does, but not the wireless. Trying to connect to anything wireless just gives an endless searching process, with no results. I can't test the ethernet either, my router is all the way into the living room, way far out of reach.

GPU: Asus 6870 HD
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 955
I don't think anything else is necessary, is it?

Computer Doesn't Detect Ethernet / Also Very Bad Range Over Wireless

Jan 6, 2013

So lately my computer's wireless network has started to get really bad, we have 100mbit, and it only gets about 0.3. This seems to be an issue with the range, or something, since if i move the computer right next to the router, it runs at about 50-60mbit. Now a few days ago i decided to get an ethernet cable to try and solve the issue, but my computer doesn't detect a LAN connection, only the wireless one ( atleast it doesnt show up among the other connections). Some weeks ago the wireless connection worked nicely, but now suddenly it doesnt anymore. Currently i'm typing this from an old mac computer, since my internet doesn't work at all on my pc.

I have two PC laptops. One operates Windows Vista, the other has XP. I recently just had to do a hard reset on my linksys wpn824v3 router and made a new network name and password. I also changed the password for the router (suspect I may have a virus). My girlfriends computer (vista) sees the new network name and connects fine, my XP computer doesn't even see the new network, but it sees my neighbors networks.. and the laptops are sitting right next to each other.

Dell :: 3460 Wireless Driver Doesn't Work After Restarting Computer / Not Installed

Mar 25, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 3460 laptop with Windows 7, 64-bit.  My wireless driver is Dell Wireless 1704.802.11b/g/n.  I just got this computer in December, and it worked fine for a couple of months, then about a month ago, I started having these problems.  

Whenever I turn off or put my computer to sleep and turn it back on, my wireless connection doesn't work.  The wireless indicator light on the front of the laptop is not on, and I push the FN+F2 button (which is supposed to turn on wireless), but it does nothing.  I checked under the device manager, and the wireless adapter is not there.

After the first time I ran the diagnostics, I reinstalled the driver.  The I restarted the computer, and the wireless was working.  However, that night I turned of the computer, and when I turned it back on the next morning, the wireless was not working again.Other things I have discovered that sometimes work as a temporary fix:

Sometimes, if I wait 5 or so minutes, the wireless indicator light will come on, and then I can restart my computer and connect to a network, but most of the time, I can wait for hours and it never comes on.If I start in computer into safe mode or the BIOS screen or diagnostic screen, sometimes the wireless will start working after I exit that mode and start into normal operating.  For example, one of the times that I ran the PSA diagnostics, the wireless started working afterwards, but stopped working again the next day.  Another time, I started the computer in safe mode with networking to see if that would work, and the wireless did not work while I was in safe mode, but then I restarted the computer in normal mode, and the wireless came on.

One time, I went under Device Manager and did "Scan for Hardware Changes."  After that, the wireless indicator light came on, and I restarted the computer and was able to connect to a network.However, all of these solutions were temporary, and some of these solutions only work one time but not again.I called Dell Support a couple of weeks ago, and they said that my antivirus program might be stopping the wireless driver from starting up.  I have Trend Micro, which came with the computer.

Computer Loses Signal Unless Very Close To Router?

Sep 28, 2011

About a week ago my laptop started acting strange. I noticed when I brought my computer to my room (which is where i usually use my computer) it said that there were connections available where the signal bar is. Which is odd because it usually just auto connects. So i clicked on the signal bar and connected to my internet, but it lost the connection shortly after so I clicked connect again and it said windows was unable to connect to the router. Then shortly after that it said no connections were available. So i brought the computer to the computer to the family room ,where the router is, to check the router. It was nothing wrong with the router so I looked back at the computer and it was automatically connected to the internet with a five bar connection, but when i left the family room with the computer it immediately lost the signal. So i decided i should just stay in the family room. The next day the same problem occured and i went back to the family room to use the computer but i noticed the connection wasnt usually at five bars like it usually is wen im that close to the router but it was 4 bars or 3.

The next day i went over my fathers house for the weekend, and when im over there i pretty much always have a five bar connection even though im not in the same room as the router because im 1 floor directly above the router. Now when i used the computer over my dads house it had a 3 bar connection, disconnected from the internet at times, and when i try to connect bak it said that windows could not connect to router like it had said in my room bak at my own house, even though it always used to have a very high connection before this problem happened. So wen i got bak to my house i went to the family room to connect to the internet and now im having the same problems i had over my dads house. Now i try deleting some programs to see if they affected the internet and have even turned off some start off services on using mpconfig but that didnt work either

Computer Forces Modem To Lose DSL Signal Repeatedly

Jun 24, 2012

So i have AT&T dsl internet. but whenever i connect my computer wirelessly to the modem and get on the internet it repeatedly loses dsl connection every some odd minutes. the dsl light on my modem turns off, then blinks red, then fixes itself for five or so minutes until the cycle restarts. ive tried 2 wireless usb adapter and 1 internal wireless card. none have worked at all. but if its wired with an ethernet cord it works fine. we also have 2 other laptops that connect wirelessly and work fine. i dont understand what would cause this solely on my computer. ive also had AT&T come to my house and look at it and they said its fine, the issue is somewhere in my computer messing with the modem.
