Cannot Connect To Home Wireless Network After Norton 360 Updated
Jul 6, 2012
first I replaced a new internal hard drive. Installed new and updated drivers. connected to the home wireless network. everything working well so far as of last week. this week, I replaced new battery and ran norton 360 updates. after the updated, I can't connect wirelessly to my home network. I checked if Norton is blocking the communication but I don't think it did.
My Vista computer and my XP computer had been happily "talking" to each other, sharing files and printers. I got tired of paying $70 a year for Norton Internet Security, so I uninstalled it (using the Norton removal tool) and selected the Windows Firewall. I also installed Avast! and SuperAntiSpyware. Now neither computer talks to the other. When I run "\FamilyRoomHPOfficeJet" I get "Windows cannot access \FamilyRoomHPOfficeJet" . Check spelling, etc. Get error code 0x800704b3 "The network path was either typed incorrectly, does not exist or the network provider is not currently available..." What have I messed up by going from the Norton firewall to the Windows one.
My internet (via wifi) works just fine. But here is the situation that has me baffled-I have a house that has ethernet wired ports in each room, then there is a central hub in my closet. In the hub, I have a grey ethernet cord that is labeled 'service'. This service wire connects to a board that features 12 ethernet ports, 1 of which says 'in', 1 says 'security interface' and has a little nub in it, and the other 10 are not labeled. The grey wire is in the 'in' port.So I am left with 10 ports- port 3 of 10 has a (phone cord size) cord in it, connecting into the 'line' port on my Qwest modem/router. (Qwest set this all up for me, by the way). The modem/router is obviously plugged into the wall. Now- remaining loose in the hub are 9 ethernet cords- 5 blue, 4 green. Each one of these is written on in sharpie, and has a room label on it. 'Family, living room, kitchen, etc...'. So, pretty obvious, I simply found which cord corresponds to the room I am trying to use (family GREEN is one, family BLUE is another). These 2 wires correspond to the top port, and bottom port of a switch plate that is in my family room. Now- inside the closet hub I plugged family GREEN and family BLUE into the back of the ROUTER, ports 1 and 2 (of 4 available). Now- I went back to the wall- connected ethernet wires into the wall plate and then into the ethernet devices I am trying to use (slingbox and directv dvr). Neither are working.
If I go to setup menu on dvr it says it cannot find a network, not getting an ip address. is that the slingbox red lights are both solid (which means there is a connection), and if I go back to the router ETH1 and ETH2 are lit up on the front, again implying that I have a valid connection. This isn't rocket science, but I must be doing something wrong. Are the family GREEN and family BLUE supposed to go into any of the 9 remaining ports that are open inside the closet hub? Because my thought was- let's say hypothetically I wanted to use every available wall jack in my house. There are 9 wall jacks total, but there are only 4 ports on the router. So this would not work. But, there are 9 ethernet ports open on the board in the closet. So I must need to use the ports in the closet, NOT on the router? If so, are these closet ports specific? Because (remember I have a phone like cord coming out of port 3, going into the 'line' port on my router/modem) I took this phone like cord out of port 3, plugged into port 4. and 5, and 6, 7, etc... and none of them would allow my wifi to work- the INT light goes off on the modem/router at that point. But when I plugged back into port 3 (where Qwest originally put it), INT lit back up and wifi worked again. So this makes me think that these 10 (9 remaining) ports are specific somehow? I know this was a lot to read. End result I am looking for- continue to use my wifi on the computer (the ONE place in my house there is no wall jack lol), and connect my slingbox and my directv dvr to the wall jack in my family room so I can (have slingbox) and get On-Demand content for directv.
I keep having no internet connection on my home wireless network, usually when i download newer versions of software, such as iTunes or java. this only happens on my dell inspiron laptop 1525. my other computers in my house work just fine. i have windows vista on laptop. the only error message i get is:The network adapter Bluetooth Network Connection in not connected. the only solution i have found so far is to do a system restore to a previous date, and voila, i have my internet connection back, no problem.
I just updated the firmware on my ZyXEL NBG-416N router and now I cannot see the wireless network being broadcasted on my PC. Other devices in my home can view this network including my phone, HDTV and laptop. I have reset the router, modem and computer several times but my PC still cannot find that specific wireless network.I am using Windows 7 64-bitASUS 802.11n Wireless LAN CardAny reason that my computer is unable to find this specific network but can find others? switchie15 has chosen the best answer to his/her question.Click here to view the answer that was selected.
My Wifi network has a wpa2 password that is a random string of characters and numbers and yet last month a rogue IP Address kept popping up on my DNS list. It has to be coming from my neighbor who's bedroom is about 15 feet away from my router. So unless someone is sitting out on my front lawn to do this then it must be him.I've been looking for software that will notify me when a connection my router is attempted and kudos if it also asks my permission first would be great.There are wifi packet sniffers out there like Cain&Abel, Airsnort, that sort of thing but I am not quite savvy enough nor do I want to turn this into a complicated hobby but just need a basic warningin case something gets past my passwords again
Ever since I updated my wireless NETGEAR WNR1000v2 Firmware to its current Version V184.108.40.206NA I'm unable to connect to the internet with my PSP Firmware version of 6.60. I used to be able to connect up with no problems. I can scan and it sees the connection and i'm able to set the PSP network settings up however when I go to test it it will not connect up.
I've problems connecting to my wireless network. i do not face this problem in the past until recently i've some problems with my laptop. after i re-format my laptop, i faced with this problem. here are some of the images i took.
I recently upgraded my wireless router from D-Link DIR-615 to D-Link DIR-685. Before the changeover, all of my devices were connecting to the router, although I had several problems with dropped connections, etc. The devices in use were:
- Desktop computer - Laptop computer - All-in-one touchscreen computer - Netbook - iPhone (original model) - HP TouchPad tablet - Sony Blu-Ray player - Two internet radios (Aluratek and Livio) - Wii
ALL of these devices were connected wirelessly to the network. When I set up the new router, I used a different network name/SSID, but kept the same security key/password. All of the router settings were kept the same (e.g., WPA-2, etc.). After the new router was up and running, every single one of the devices listed above connected (after an initial setup with the new network name, of course) EXCEPT the All-in-one/touchscreen computer. I've tried over and over, and it refuses to accept the security key/password. (The desktop, laptop, and touchscreen are all running Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.) After doing some research, I tried some suggested solutions, but nothing seems to work. Nothing on the problem computer has changed since it was last connected to the old router. I checked the "Properties" of the network device on both the Desktop (which has no problems connecting) and the Touchscreen, and they are identical: WPA-2, AES, etc. And I'm 100% positive I'm entering the security key correctly. I've rebooted the router and the computer several times.
I have set up a wireless network in my home using s d-link N+ 300 DIR-655 and the desktop that is directly connected to the modem and router can connect to the internet and my laptop can access the wireless network and get online but I have another desktop that cannot connect to the wireless network. It can see it but when i try and connect i get the message that it was unable to connect or sometimes that i was able to connect but have limited connectivity.
My laptop with Windows 7 64-bit is not being able to connect to the home wireless network. But other devises like iPad and iPhone and Mac laptop can connect to the same wireless network. However I can connect to the network if I connect my laptop directly to the wireless router using a network cable.I have tried upgrading the firmware in my wireless router but no luck. THis laptop had no problem before connecting to the same wireless network. But since I came back from the back home couple of days back I am seeing this problem. But my laptop can still connect to my my-fi devise wireless network. I have tried running the netsock commands listed in a similar thread in this forum but no luck.netsh winsock reset catalog netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
I've tried everything possible to connect my blu ray player to my network. I've tried the auto setup, manual entry and cant come up with anything. I've followed all the instructions i can find on-line and i don't know if I'm overlooking something or what. I've got Philips blu ray home theater system and linksys wrt120n router
I have a work supplied laptop. Used to be able to connect to my home wireless network - this stopped working last week. It can connect to other wireless networks, both at the office and other public places, but can't connect to my home network.
I've tried: Manually creating the wireless network Removing the profile from regedit Removing the profile from ProgramDataMicrosoftWlansvcsProfiles
It sees the network and attempts to connect, but never successfully connect. I have other laptops at home that are working just fine. The network is setup with WEP security, and I've entered/reentered the password several times.
Note, when I started this, the home network did not appear under the Manage Wireless Networks list in the Network and Sharing Center.
How can I connect a vista laptop to existing wireless home network with other 3 [COLOR=#000096 !important][COLOR=#000096 !important]xp[/COLOR][/COLOR] machines.I followed googled info but keep chasing my tail as all effords end trying to make an internet connection. [code] is Negear wired & wireless capable in which 2 PCs are wired & an Acer netbook wireless connected, all 3 XP machines.
I updated my Mac to OSX 10.8 and now every time I try to login to my work network (a windows network) it locks my account. Each time, my sysadmin unlocks my account and I am able to successfully login one time but then, if I login again (after restart or sleep) I am locked out.
I have a dell inspiron 1545 and my internet was working fine last night. My laptop restarted at some point during the night and now it can't connect to my normal wireless network. when I use my phone as a wifi hotspot, my laptop can connect to it.My desktop connects to my home's wireless network fine so I'm not sure why my laptop, which can connect to other networks fine, can't connect to my working home network
1. Green Packet DX-230 WiMAX modem with router 2. D-Link DIR-615 ver G2 (from my ISP) 3. D-Link 8 port desktop switch
I previously used the DIR-615 with my high speed broadband connection. However I had to move to a new house and here I can only get WiMAX. I want to...Place the WiMAX modem upstairs to serve as modem and wireless access point Have the DIR-615 function as the main router and firewall (downstairs) Use the switch to connect all the rooms in my house FYI my WiMAX modem has no connection configurations. I just plug it in and it'll connect automatically to the WiMAX signal. It has 2 LAN ports but no WAN port. From my understanding of networking, I have to turn off DHCP on my WiMAX modem, put it in the same IP range as my DIR-615 (192.168.0.100-199), and disable UPNP and NATPMP. After this I'm stuck.How do I tell my DIR-615 to use the WiMAX modem as it's WAN connection?Should I reserve an IP for the modem in my DIR-615?
I recently installed a new router - WRTP54G . I used to have our 2 machines on a home network. However, that is all gone now. When I open My Network Places on my pc, nothing at all appears. On the other pc only the shared folders on that pc appears. I've tried running the network wizard several times and to no avail. I've checked the permissions and everything else I can think of, but it still doesn't work. I believe it is probably something simple to fix, like checking the right box, but I haven't found it yet. Both machines are running XP Home and I have an external drive attached to my pc. Everything worked fine till the installation of this new router. Should I just create a new network? Would that just be easier? One more thing, I got the error that says Home is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact admin of this server to find out if you have access permission. The network path was not found. Of course, I am the admin.
I am unable to connect my Ipad3 to my home network (WRT160N router). It has been working for the last 8 months, and stopped working after I installed Direct TV App on Ipad..It detects the network, but not accepts the PW.... I have multiple wireless devicess connected to my network without any problems..The funny thing is that my neighbor brings his ipad to my house and he is able to connect..My ipad connects to any other network...just not my home network.. I contacted Apple who spend hours with me on the phone and suggested doing a full reset on the ipad, but still did not solve the problem..I called and already paid for linksys support ($62.95) who spend hours with me on the phone, but suggesting: "maybe you need to buy another router"...REALLY!!!! Again, I have 3 Smart TVs, Xbox360, and Wii, that are connected to the network just fine .even my neibor comes with his Ipad3 and connects to my network just fine......and I can connect with my ipad to any other network without any problems... BTW, I have already removed the DirectTV app from the ipad....but I still cannot connect to my network..
I have a xbox 360 that I want to connect to xbox live with, using my home network. Every time I try to connect to xbox live the only part that fails is the connecting to xbox live part. This is how my network is set up. I have Cox Cable as my ISP, a Linksys WCG200 gateway(v2), and WRT54GS(v7). The cable wire is connected to the WCG200 gateway, then an Ethernet cable connects the gateway to the WRT54GS router, and finally an Ethernet cable connects the router to my xbox 360. I have contacted Cox, Linksys, and Microsoft about the situation and they all say the problem is the version of the router. Someone told me that I may just need to change the firmware, but I don't know how to do that.
I have two WS-C2950G-24-EI switches each of which were running software version 12.1(22)EA2-C2950-I6Q4L2-M. Both swtiches were viewable from Network Assistant version 5.6(3) and part of a community. I then updated the software on one of the switches to 12.1(22)EA14, and now Network Assistant will not add the new updated device to the community and gives an error of "WS-C2950G-24-EI is not supported as community member". Is the latest version (12.1(22)EA14) not supported by Network Assistant? The release notes indicate the Minimum Software Release is 12.1(22)EA4.
I have just bought a TP-Link Wireless Access Point (TL-WA&01ND) and an ethernet switcher (TL-SF2005D).I have put the access point into client mode, allowing me to put it in my room and wirelessly connect to my router, allowing me to plug my PC in over ethernet and use the internet. However, after much fiddling with settings I cannot get it to work, as it continually searches for a network, and then fails to connect, despite the fact it is configured to use the network?I already have a similar setup with a netgear wireless G access point which works, and so I dont understand why the new box cannot do this when using what I believe to be the same settings.
Secondly I have an ethernet switch box which I bought to connect to the access point and switch the ethernet signal between my two PCs, my xbox and PC. This works fine with my primary PC (over my old access point) but when I try to connect my PC i get a DNS failure with auto IP settings and a gateway failure with manual settings, and other devices refuse to connect.
Camera set up with the Beta Mac wizard connected via ethernet on Airport base. Wireless security WPA2 Personal. Using DHCP. AirPort Utility 5.5.2, OSX 10.6.6.I can see the cam with the myDlink Lite iPhone (4) App when I am in my house with my wireless network. When I am out, away from my network, the App can't connect to the cam, tells me to check my network settings. I did the wps way and added the cam in the airport base utility *Access Control* tab but still doesn't work. Checked in the cam web page settings, can't figure out what the Pre-Shared Key is and where I get it/set it up in the airport utility...

I have a question about my windows systems(XP and Vista) re-connecting to my network folders when my computers restart. I have some shared network folders on my Synology DS410. And then i mapped a network drive to use those folders.But every time i restart my computer i get the message "cannot reconncet all network drives"I have to put in my username and password everytime. I choose Remember login and password.How can i fix this so it automatically connects to these on restart?
FYI... 1 computer - Windows Vista Home Premium 1 computer - Windows XP Home Both connected via wired LAN
My iSCSI drives connect just fine on restart. Just not my mapped network folders.

I'm having trouble connecting to my home network. Whether it be wireless or wired. My computer will say that I'm connected to my network, however it says identifying network forever. Same thing with wired. I'm running windows 7...my network adapter cards are as followed : Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Network Adapter and Atheros AR8151 PCI-E gigabit ethernet controller. I've tried to update both of them, with no success. I've uninstalled both of them and reinstalled them, again, with no success.
