Compaq Presario CQ61 Laptop Won't Recognize / Connect To Wireless Network

Jul 11, 2012

I have a Compaq presario CQ61 laptop running windows 7 and since my boyfriend installed a new netgear wireless router I haven't been able connect to the home wireless network. I have no problem connecting to public or private wireless networks at my house or elsewhere. Also, my boyfriend and his roommate have no problem connecting to the network on their laptops. It is a WPA encrypted network. I have also tried shutting off the firewall on my computer without any change. My laptop doesn't even recognize the network - i tried to manually add the network to my computer but it still won't come up on my list of active networks.

Routers / Switches :: Unable To Recognize Wireless Network Router On Wireless Laptop?

Jan 15, 2012

One moment the laptop was using the wireless connection from the router in our house and the next it lost internet access and then wasn't able to recognize the SSID or connection at all on the available wireless connections. We have reset the router and restarted the laptop countless times yet the only internet access we have is on the computer the router is hooked up to.The wireless connection works neither on the laptop nor the Wii, both previously works merely hours ago and with no problems until now.We assume there is an issue with the router itself, whether it be a loose ethernet cord (which only faintly can be moved in its place).It's almost as if the router is stopping them (Wii, and laptop) from having access. When we explore the wireless internet properties on the laptop, it shows the wireless connection, yet only there and doesn't give access to it. Could it be the router, or could the company have restricted WiFi only to the computer it is hooked up to?

Laptop Won't Recognize Internet Connection

Jan 30, 2013

Due to the untimely demise of my old wireless adsl router (after an altercation with a destructive toddler), I've bought a new one.Connected it via cable to my laptop, & have set it all up through the wizard. When I'm connected via cable, I can access the internet perfectly well.However, if I try to connect using wireless, it can see the wireless router, asks for password, tells me I'm connected to the router - but it tells me that I'm in a local network only (can't find the internet). I've connected another laptop and a few smartphones to wireless, and they all work without any problem at all.I've done the usual take it all apart & start again, but it still comes back to the same problem.The only thing I wondered was that the new router is Wireless N, whereas the old laptop is a b/g - but we've got an older HTC smartphone that's only b/g and that doesn't have any problems.

Laptop Won't Recognize Wireless Connection After A Power Outage

Dec 8, 2011

The power went out in the room where my desktop and router and modem and everything is located. The electrical outlet that all of those things were connected to suddenly stopped working so I had to relocate everything to the other electrical outlet in the room. Everything is working fine again, including the internet connection on my desktop, but now my laptop in the other room will not recognize my wireless connection. It gives me a list of available networks, but none of which are my own. Which makes no sense, as everything is working as normal on my desktop. I tried to "manually connect to a wireless network" by typing in the name and proper security type/encryption type and password, however it tells me a network called (my network name) already exists, and it says "use the existing network. Open the 'connect to a network' dialog so I can connect." or "choose a different name." When I choose the former option, the list of available networks pops up again but mine is not on there. And it should be, as I'm definitely in close range of my router.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: RVS4000 Won't Recognize Laptop

Nov 8, 2011

old laptop (Dell Inspiron 8000) which works on his Linksys BEFSR41 router, but it will not work with my RVS4000 router.  My desktop works with my RVS4000 router, and I have tried connecting the laptop directly to my router with the cable I use for my desktop (as well as a different cable), but the laptop will not work (it says my network cable is unplugged).  The additional ports on the RVS4000 are black (the green LED lights won't turn on).  My desktop works using different RVS4000 ports, but alas, the laptop won't.  I have rechecked the router settings, tried disconnecting the cable modem and the router (to reboot), and unplugged the power overnight, but nothing works.  I even tried changing the duplex settings from auto to 100 full duplex which didn't work either.

Atheros AR5005G - Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop Won't Recognize Networks

Jul 4, 2011

I just did a clean format on my acer aspire 5100 laptop, everything went flawlessly until the last driver - the network driver. I installed the Atheros WLAN wifi driver and it installed fine. However, it showed a bubble in the task bar saying "Wireless networks detected, click here to connect" so i clicked the bubble and the network connection tab popped up, but it says "No wireless networks were found in range". I don't know what to do, it is recognizing there are networks in range, and then telling me there aren't and none pop up in the list.

The network adapter is: Atheros AR5005G and it is working properly

Edit: I can connect using ethernet, it's just not showing any routers in the network list to connect to

Cannot Get Network To Recognize PC

Feb 15, 2012

I am running windows xp sp2 on a pc, a wireless modem 2wire model 2701hg and a laptop with windows vista. My pc had a virus that required reinstalling windows xp. When I did that my pc came up with an ethernet connection instead of reconnecting into the wireless network. I cannot get the pc back into the wireless network with the limited knowledge I have. When I look at my "system summary" on the 2 wire website I can see my pc listed twice, once with the ethernet connection and once with the wireless connection but labeled "inactive". How do I get my pc back onto the wireless network?

How To Get Windows 7 Box To Recognize Home Network PCs And Printer

May 6, 2011

I've got a small wireless home network that currently has 2 computers - my desktop is running XP Pro, and a laptop that my wife uses running XP Home. I've recently bought a new laptop that is running Windows 7, and although it picks up the wireless feature of the network (it has wireless internet access), I can't seem to figure out how to get this new Windows 7 laptop to see the other PCs or the printer connected to my desktop.

Apr 9, 2012

I recently purchased a Sony Bravia KDL-60EX720, and I am having issues connecting it to my DLNA network running on my Mac.

Computer Won't Recognize 2 TB WD Network Storage Device

Apr 4, 2013

After using my 2 TB WD network storage device on other systems both wirelessly and via an ethernet connection, I decided to install the device on a new system via a wired connection. Unfortunately, my computer (WIN XP) won't recognise the device when using a direct connection though my talk talk supplied D-LINK wireless router. I have contacted WD and talktalk and gone through all the diagnostic processes but it still won't recognise the device. I have been able to connect this device through an older D-LINK router (still wireless) on the same talk talk ISP with no problems so I can't understand why it won't connect here. The WD device reports no problems but I can't access it, even when all firewall and AV programs are disabled.

Linksys E2000 - Vista Does Not Recognize Wireless Network?

Jan 15, 2011

After reinstalling Vista, Vista does not recognize my wireless network. I know that the wireless network is working because my i-Touch and my blue-ray (internet streaming) still are working with the Cisco/Linksys E2000. I made sure that the wireless switch on my Gateway laptop was in the on position. The wireless hardware does not show up in the hardware control panel. Is this a driver issue or a hardware issue? It does not seem that it would be a hardware problem.

My Gateway is still under warranty thru Best Buy. If it's a hardware problem, it's covered but if it's a software problem(I take it that a driver would be software), they want $100 to fix. This is what brings me to a second question, if it's a driver issue, should I just upgrade to Window 7? Does Window 7 have build in drivers for wireless hardware?

Dell :: WLAN 1450 - Unable To Recognize New Wireless Network

May 11, 2012

I have recently installed a new wireless network in my home. All my internet devices (Laptops, PS3, iPad etc.) have been able to acess the new network but my old Dell XPS 600 with its Dell 1450 wireless card cannot "see" the new network. When I refresh available networks in wireless connections the old XPS 600 can see various networks (neighbours etc.) but cannot recognise the new network even though its working fine with my other PCs

Do I need to upgrade the Dell 1450 wireless card ? If so what am I missing - what requirements do I miss? Which card should I buy?

Routers / Switches :: Linksys WRT110 Laptops Won't Recognize Wireless Network

All of the sudden, after a storm blew through yesterday, none of the laptops in my house (PC running Vista and Mac) will recognize my wireless network. I have a desktop computer and BluRay player hardwired to the router and the internet works fine on them through the router.The problem is not that I can't connect or lose connection, the wireless network isn't showing up as existing anymore, like it has disappeared.

Home Network :: Use Laptop As Network Tap Between (DSL) Modem And Wrt54gs By Creating A Bridge?

Jan 8, 2013

I'm experimenting/attempting to use a laptop as a network tap between my (DSL) modem and a wrt54gs by creating a bridge with two NICs in the laptop. My problem is I can't seem to get connectivity on the user end of the router. I can't ping the bridge from an end computer...

DHCP is disabled in the router, but even when manually configuring the IP address on an end computer and using the bridge as a default gateway I can't ping out.

Am I completely misunderstanding the purpose of a NIC bridge?
