Laptop Recognizes 1 Of 2 Wireless Networks And Other Computers Can Connect To Both
Feb 11, 2012
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.

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 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'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 a Dell Studio 1555 and normally my wireless connection works perfectly. It runs on Vista and I bought it in August 2009. Just recently I went to a friends house, and my wireless detected their router, but where normally it shows connection signal bars, it showed a red 'X' and wouldn't allow me to connect. It wasn't their router because their wireless on their computers were connecting to it fine. Then I went back to my house, my wireless was working fine, and connected automatically right away. The next weekend I went to my parents' house, where I have brought my computer and was able to connect to their wireless countless times in the past, did the same exact thing as when I was at my friends' house. Normally it will detect their router by their name because that is what they have it set at, but now it can only detect it as linksys. And it will not connect. I have no idea what to do because as soon as I go back to my house, my computer is able to connect to my wireless
One of my business customers need a network set up a certain way.They have two XP computers right now. Their internet connection is wireless through a Verizon Mifi. They also have a crossover cable through the wall so the two computers can share files.They are going to add a 3rd Windows 7 computer and turn one of those XP computers into a server where all the files they need to access (Quickbooks, etc) will be stored. They do not want the server to have internet access at all. Becuase of the way the building is set up, I need to add a wireless router to the mix. The Mifi will only be for the two client computers to connect to the internet and the other wireless router would be for the two client computers to connect to the server to access their files. I tried yesterday to add the wireless router to the mix by having one computer (XP) use one wireless card to access the Mifi with an IP address of 192.168.2.1 and another wireless card to access the wirless router with an IP address of 192.168.1.1. It connected to both perfectly, but then got confused as to which wireless connection to use to access the internet. I've read about how you need to use two different gateway addresses on each to seperate them inside Windows but wanted to make sure that's how I needed to do it before I went out there and tried it.
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 the wireless switch turned on and the wireless router is set up correctly - I know the network name, encryption & password.The same setup has worked fine before, but now the laptop isn't letting me connect to it, or even try to connect to it.The internet works perfectly if I connect the ethernet cable directly; and I can bring up the wireless router's settings with 192.168.1.1; but the internet doesn't work when I remove the cable. I looked on google to try and find the method of bringing up the available networks, but it won't work for me. When I hover the cursor over the icon on the taskbar, it says "not connected - connections are available", but nothing happens when I click on it. I tried moving the cursor to the bottom-right corner of the screen, clicking on Settings, and clicking on the network icon with "Available" written underneath it, but again nothing happens.
I've also tried this:
-right-clicked network icon on taskbar, opened Network and Sharing Center
-clicked Set Up a Connection or Network
-clicked Connect to the Internet - nothing happens and the window crashes, I have to CTRL+ALT+DELETE->task manager->restart Windows Explorer
-clicked Manually Connect to a Wireless Network - I enter the details of the wireless network, then it says that the network already exists; I choose to Use the existing network, open the "connect to a network" dialog so I can connect, but then nothing happens. It doesn't crash this time though.

The TL-MR3420 recognizes my modem (Olivetti Olicard 160), but it does not connect to the 3G network. I tested the modem on my PC and it connects fine. The PIN verification is deactivated and the Modem configuration is the same as I use on the PC, however it just keeps trying to connect without success. I updated the firmware to the latest version.
I have tried restarting my laptop multiple times (something that usually works for me in terms of reconnecting to the internet) but that didn't work. And like i said it does not recognize a single wi-fi network while my ipod, phone, and the other computers in my household recognize our wi-fi and our usual neighbors wi-fi without any problem.I was torrentingsome music yesterday, and may or may not have stumbled across a bad site with a virus, but that's the only conclusion I could make.(Currently posting this on my brother's computer)I need to get my connection back and get online again asap?
I purchased a new laptop (wireless-n). However, the old laptop I have from 6 six years ago (wireless g) has a faster wireless connection than the new one (20-25 mbps vs. 0.50-1.00 mbps). The 2 computers are at the same location in the house in regards to the router.
I have 3 Macs (OS 10.6.8) and one PC (Windows 7) at work. They are all connected to the company network for internet and access to shared network drives.The computers are used for media (mostly video) production and we need to move large files between the computers easily and quickly. The current network (company wide) is slow and unreliable, so I would like to create a separate network for these four computers and have them connected to both the company network and the office room network. Each computer already has two network ports and I have a router I can use.
My HP laptop's wireless does not detect my home wireless network.The wireless is on, there is internet connectivity and other devices at my house detect the network but not my laptop. i hve already spent so much of time in finding out the problem.The driver for the wireless is installed and updated.The service is running. Checked the Wireless Zero Configuration.
So about a week ago my computer stopped picking up wifi signals even though I know they're active. I can connect to the internet using an ethernet cable, but my computer doesn't even detect the wireless internet that any device puts out
It's fine if I use a ethernet cable though. Updated drivers. Someone said resetting "Winsock", believe I did so. Says media disconnected, but in device manager nothing is wrong and is "working properly"[CODE]
I have recently bought a second hand toshiba tecra laptop, i am trying to connect it to my netgear router. There is currently only one other laptop connect to this router and yet it will not let me connect to it. I have matched all the setting from the current laptop to the one i am trying to connect however it still will not even pick up a signal. I have phoned my network provider and they couldnt manage to find out the problem. When i try to search for wireless network connections there are none found even though the wifi button is on?
Is there a way to transfer all the 'saved' wireless networks from my current laptop to my new one? I go to many different offices and have probably about 50 wireless networks 'stored' on my laptop. Everytime I go back to that office it just automatically connects. I would hate to have to try and find all these passwords again. Is there a way to transfer all this to my new laptop?
So, I happened to do CD recovery a day ago; *Due to forgetting Administrator password* and now my laptop seems to not be able to pick up any wireless connections when there usually is a ton. Also every time my laptop restarts it always loads saying "Preparing for first time use" Like I used the CD recovery again. which I didn't. I thought that maybe it has to do with the Drivers and such, though im not very tech fancy, so I wouldn't exactly know where to find the correct driver to install, and which to install.[code] Oh and lastly, I happened to notice on Driver manager, that on "other devices" there is a yellow exclamation point, on both of them: Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150 and Network Controller.
Have three computers ( 2 are XP one is vista) connected via wireless router one computer is considered a host computer sitting on a docking station which has the printers connected to it. In the beginning once everything was connected we could print from any computer wireless, then one day we had a power outage and for some reason we can only print from the host computer. How to get the other computers back online to print. All computers are still able to connect to the internet via wireless router (Linksys E1000) but not able to print except the host which is directly connected to the printers.
I have set up a network consisting of an XP desktop , Windows Home Server Desktop & XP Netbook & router.The network works as it should when the netbook is connected to the router by ethernet. However, when I connect the netbook wirelessly it (the netbook) cannot view the other computers & an access error is returned when trying to access networked folders on the desktop & server. (the desktop can see the laptop though). Disabling the security software made no difference nor did resetting winsock. So the problem lies with connecting wirelessly.
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.
I've a Dell laptop with Windows XP. I was able to connect to my own secured wireless network. Suddenly no networks are found anymore where my other laptops are able to find wireless networks. Repairing the wireless network connection does not resolve the problem.how I can find my wireless connections again?
When I click on the Wireless Network Connection icon it says "Wireless network unavailable." There's also an error message that says "The Dell Wireless WLAN Card is disabled. Use the Dell Wireless WLAN Utility to enable it." When I right click on the wireless network icon it says "No wireless networks were found in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on. To see an updated list, click 'Refresh network list.'" I don't have a wireless switch. I have a wireless enable icon and it says Enabled. My wireless network is working because my phone sees it and two other networks in the neighborhood. I couldn't find the Dell Wireless WLAN Utility. I also tried my iPhone hotspot. Laptop did not detect it either.
My XPS M1330 was working fine until today. While using the computer, it disconnected from my home wireless network. Windows Device Manager tells me the device is working normally. The WiFi switch is on but the WiFi catcher doesn't find any networks. I can connect to my home network with an Ethernet cable and my desktop, which is on the same network, can connect so i know its not my modem or router.
I have a Toshiba Satellite T110 laptop, and I've recently completely wiped the hard drive, with the OS (Windows 7) being wiped along with it. Anyway, I got a new CD for Windows 7 which was burned however, And once installed, I saw I couldn't find any wireless networks at all. It's like as if it's one of those old classic computers that didn't have wireless. So I bought a Windows 7 CD key online from my iPad. But I couldn't use the product key without Internet, so I did the activate by phone thing. After that it said windows has been successfully activated. Which I don't believe it has anyway. Could any of that possibly be related to my problem of not finding any wireless connections? My laptop was perfectly fine before wiping. my network card adapter thing is an Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS)
I have a home wireless network and my service provider is Suddenlink. I use a DLink modem and have two Tosiba laptops. All of this has been working fine until this morning when one of the laptops won't connect to the internet. when I run the trouble shooting guides on it I get messages that the problem is that the modem won't connect to the internet. However, the other laptop (this one) is working fine. when I look at the network map i see both computers and a green line to the modem. on this computer, there is also a green line from modem to internet. the other computer shows a res x on the modem to internet line. this is a sudden change i have restarted the computer the modem and the router. I can also conenect this computer to the internet via a mifi that I have but not the other laptop. there are no red x's on any of the hardware when I go to the "manage" computer.
All of a sudden my laptop will not see, much less connect to any networks.I've updated, uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, set BIOS to the default, turned the wireless switch on and off (FN F8 does nothing,) virus checked, trouble shot via windows, etc. I gave up and got a USB wireless dongle and it can't find any networks either! Yes, there are networks available via my router and the USB works on another machine. Both devices show up in DEVMGR with no warnings. Ethernet works fine, that's how I'm now connected.I can do a system reload but I'm hoping not to. It's gotta be software for both devices to not function.?
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.
