I have read numerous postings on this and ather sites about the Atheros AR9285 not being able to see wireless networks - and guess what I have the same problem!My laptop is an HP CQ61-312SA upgraded to 4GB of ram, and running Windows 7 Home Premium, I have tried everything I can find on this and other forum sites with no luck at all, including updating drivers, making sure Wlan is started etc and I have downloaded programs like Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and Insider = both of which show absolutely nothing.I have one other problem that might indicate a software problem - on the odd occasion when my computer does try to connect to a wireless network it resets to a blue scree which states that it is doing a 'physical memorey dump' and then restarts.My Atheros card has worked perfectly for 2 years, but I managed to purchase another it case it was faulty - with the same results. I also upgraded the memory in case of a memory fault.Rolling back drivers and using system restore does not work and ipconfig/all gives identical readouts to others with this problem.
The laptops are supposed to be compatible with CCXv5 program, but in WLC (and two controllers CT-5508) the client is not seen as CCX client compatible !
So roaming is bad. Even with a very good and dense wifi coverage (no coverage hole detected), because the laptop still stay associated with a far AP (until -90dbm), instead of roaming with the nearests APs (-40dbm !!)
This past weekend I went out of town and took my Windows 7 laptop with me -- since I returned home, it has been unable to connect to my wireless network. Other devices in my home connect to the network just fine, and the problem laptop has always been fine until now. My network card is an Atheros AR9285, and I'm attempting to connect to a Medialink router with WPA password protection and AES encryption.My wireless network icon in the task bar has a yellow sign with an exclamation point in it. It says "No Internet access."
i have a samsung N130 with an Atheros AR9285, a few months ago everything was working fine, suddenly i was disconnected, and i couldn't find any wi-fi connection. i tried system restore, installing the latest drivers, nothing is solving the problem. The wireless chip is working properly according to windows device manager.
Using a D-link usb dongle i could find wireless networks and connect to the internet.
I have Lenovo laptop and my internet works just fine when the cable is connected but Wifi does not work. It shows that i have excellent signal on the side but it just wont connect. When i type in password it says " Windows cannot connect to XYZ ". I use Windows 7 and my wireless network adapter is Atheros AR9285.

I have a Compaq Presario R3000. It did not hav a wireless card or antenna. I purchased and installed all. I uploaded the drivers and there are no ssues(apparent) with the drivers.I have a Broadcom g Network Adapter. Windows Zero Configuration is started and set to automatic. I reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults using netsh winsock reset catalog and I rebooted.I am lost and don't know what else to check. Also, this machine doesn't have a wifi button that I can see but the card is
Now my problem started happening after my desktop computer got unplugged. When I booted back up, I was unable to connect to my access point. Or find any of the other networks it can always see. I took my laptop and set up an ad hoc network and it came right up. The wireless access point has not been changed and it is perfectly fine. I've updated the drivers from Ralink, nothing. Uninstalled and rebooted, nothing. Checked the BIOS for any settings, nothing. Made sure the radio was turned on, nothing.
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.
I installed a netgear WN3000RP extender in my home. Now I uninstalled it to give it to my mother-inlaw. One of my PC's doesnt list my network. So i can't connect. But it will list all the other wifi networks in my neighborhood. My other PC's will pickup and list my wifi network fine. What wrong? I'm running VISTA basic on this computer.
I took this wifi adapter from a pc that isn't being used, and decided to plug it into one that is. While it was in the other pc, it worked, now that it's in this pc it doesn't detect ANY wifi networks. I decided to plug it into a laptop and it worked the minute the drivers were installed.The problems are as follows:
* When plugged into the pc, the adapter's utility app just says "Checking status" and no info being displayed thereafter. * Windows says the device is working, but it does not come up in the Internet Access popup window in the task bar. * No info comes up in Xirrus except for the name of the adapter.
I installed both the drivers that came with the adapter, and the latest drivers from windows update. Neither worked.It is a Billion BiPAC 3011N adapter.
I have an hp g62 laptop and it has an Atheros ar9285 wireless adapter and a realtek pci-e ff ethernet adapter. For some reason just recently neither will connect to my netgear cable wifi router. I have two smartphones,xbox and two other laptops that connect with no problem. Everything is configured correctly that i can tell and both drivers have been updated. still nothing, it trys to connect but keeps saying identifying then it says no internet access. also i have disabled firewall and entered the security paraphrase twice just to make sure.
I've been having major issues with my wireless on this computer (randomly decides not to work while computers in the same room are fine) so I got a new wireless card to see what it could do. Installed it, everything says it's installed fine, but it will NOT detect any wireless networks. Not just mine, any of the 8+ networks I can usually detect from my room. I'm on Win7 Professional 64.
Things I've tried (and I'll be seriously annoyed if people reccomend doing them a 14th time, as I've already spent an hour on livechat with a support person telling me to do things I told her I'd already done):
Installed with 4 different drivers (the ones on the CD, the ones on the website, two versions directly from Ralink for the chipset) Tried both the manual and automatic "update driver" options in device manager. Uninstalled/reinstalled it like 4 times. Moved it to a new PCI slot.
Removed the old adapter before installing it. Removed the old adapter after installing it. Tried connecting to my network as a "hidden" network (which it's not). Installed only the driver and not the adapter utility, and used the utility. Installed the software before physically installing the adapter. Installed it after physically installing the adapter.
I'm at a loss. It doesn't detect ANY networks. No, it's not a problem with my network, there's more than a half dozen that my other adapter, in the same computer, can detect. And I don't know why. It has not ever worked properly. The antennae are on properly, nothing is interfering with it (though that would be odd since it's 3 inches from an adapter that can detect other networks). I might be willing to accept that it's just DoA, but that would be odd considering it installs just fine and reports that it's working just fine.
don't have a wireless card in my CPU but Ive bought an wireless router (Belkin G router) so how can i use wifi (as i have some products which require wifi) should i buy a wireless USB adapter will it should i buy a wireless card. An will the wireless usb adapter work.
I assume that the E4200 uses VLANs for the the guest network. Is it possible to trunk the LAN interface and pass that vlan to the switch so that you can pass the vlan to an AP?Would be great to see the Guest wireless on the Cisco 1250 like I do the main SSID.
Is there any way to make networks hidden through the WiFi Smart software? I have a Cisco Linksys E4200V2. I have gone through everything to try figure out how to make my S.S.I.D. to not be broadcasted, but seems like the only way to make it hidden is to use the Origonal Firmware make it as hidden, then install the New Firmware and software. Seems like Cisco may have missed this option. I do know a lot of people would prefer their Networks hidden for a little security. I know it isn't much, cause if someone wants to get that info it's not hard to get it. But for people who don't know or don't want to waste all the time to find the Hidden Network name can be turned away, for going through that extra step.
i just got a sager notebook for college and i just received it. i just opened it out of the box and was unable to connect to wifi. My other computer and iphone are working fine on it. My wifi shows up i am just not able to connect to my internet. ive tried to download drivers and reinstall them.
I am trying to connect to my wifi network at my home. I have a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Card. I am using an Inspiron 1545 and operating Windows 7.My Router is a Linksys WRT54G. I looked through some old posts and this shows the results of IP Config test I ran:Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

Laptop is an Asus k53ta-sx122v with windows 7 64 bit. My wireless card - Artheros AR9285, flat out refuses to work.It shows up as 'Not connected' in Network Connections and I've no idea how to get it back working again. Drivers are up to date and anything I've already found by searching hasn't worked.
I've got a HP netbook with an Atheros AR9285 wireless card that will only connect to my router at 75 Mbps. It doesn't matter if its right next to the router or a room away. The router is an E4200 running on mixed mode, auto channel, 2.4 Ghz, but the netbook is usually the only device connected. Or could it be a router configuration (its new)?
I'm using an HP G60 laptop, running Win 7 Pro x64 SP1, fully patched. I'm usually in the home office, connected to a D-Link DIR-615 router (h/w: E3, f/w: 5.10, the latest). The internal Atheros AR9285 N150 wireless adapter has never been as reliable as I'd like, so decided to purchase a USB N300 adapter. I bought a TP-Link model for $10 and started using it. For some reason, it would only connect at 150, unless I ran the router's Web interface and saved the wireless settings, even without a change, at which point I'd see 300 Mbps. However, at the next restart after hibernation, the connection with the DIR-615 would fall back to 150.
I stepped on the TP-Link USB adapter and broke it. Oops. Decided to purchase a D-Link DWA-131 (h/w: A1, f/w: 1.21, the latest) 'cause it's compact and the box says that, "For Optimal Wireless Performance +Use With Wireless N 300 Router (DIR-615)."Expected 300 Mbps, but it connected at 65. Argh. Did the trick again with the DIR-615's Web interface, and saw 150. But after restart from hibernation, back down to 65. Unable to achieve 300 Mbps, unlike the cheap-o TP-Link adapter. Router is configured according to Lycan's sticky note. Router's Wireless Status shows a signal of 39%, and the router is in the next room in a wood-framed building.Is this as good as it can be? Looks like the DWA-131 is coupla years old with no new drivers for Win 7. Ran the DSL Reports Java speed test, and seeing 18+ Mbps d/l, and 1.8 Mbps u/l, which is about average from Cox here in The OC. If I can't get a faster connection, then D-Link's claim of "optimal performance" is misleading.
When I check available Wi-Fi networks it says "No connections are available. All of our other computers work so I dont know what the problem is. When I check device manager for the adapter it says my adapter is enabled so I dont know what the problem is. How can I get it to recognize my wi-fi?
I am facing a problem since today as my WiFi is turned on, but i cannot view the list of networks that is available in my workplace. When i asked my colleague whether he could view the list in his laptop, he was able to. And also when i checked through my smart phone i was able to view a list of wireless networks. So it means there is some error in my laptop. I realised this when i tried creating a AD-HOC connection which eventually resulted in 'Windows cannot set up NETWORK NAME'. Why is it that i am not able to view the list of wireless network? And why can't i establish a AD-HOC connection?
I have an ASUS x54c running 64 bit windows7, I took my computer in to be repaired (it wouldn't charge properly) and when I got it back it wouldn't connect to the internet. It just says not connected with a big red X on it. The networ adapter is Atheros AR9285, I've tried running the built in diagnostics but with no results.
I'd like to know if there is some easy-ish way to combine wifi and ethernet in a network.Since a picture says a thousand words, here's what I want to achieve:I use the desktop computer as a file and media server using windows home group.I have the laptop running windows 7 connected to the TV.So far I've been using just wifi, but when I try to stream movies from my desktop to the laptop I get freezes and glitches.I can't connect both my desktop and laptop wired to the ADSL router, since it's behind a wall I'm not allowed to drill trough.I have a spare network switch and cables, so I was thinking I could connect the ethernet adapters on the desktop and laptop together trough the switch, I'm just not sure how to configure the computers.
