Laptop (lenovo G560) / Unable To Connect To Home Wifi
May 28, 2011
My laptop (Lenovo g560) runs windows 7 Home ed. About 3 months ago my parents changed the wifi password and so my laptop was unable to connect to our home internet, and I never bothered to fix it. It's been 3 months and now when I need to connect, it won't. The network appears in the list of detected networks, i correctly typed in the new requirements of the SSID, and when i press 'connect' it instantly pops up with 'Windows was unable to connect to XXXXXXX'. The modem is from Netgear. I've tried switching the modem off and on, the wireless activation swith on my laptop off and on, the Fn+F5 for wireless and bluetooth off and on, reinstalled drivers etc.I know its not a problem with my modem as wifi works for other mobile devices (like my iphone, other laptops etc), and my laptop has no problem connecting to the uni wifi network. There only seems to be a problem with connecting my laptop to the home network. Perhaps i've tried fiddling around with the 'properties' of the network too much and I've accidentally changed some settings i was not supposed to? how to restore the wireless settings of this network 'back to default' or in the state it was when i was able to connect.
I have a lenovo G560 laptop. The specs say that it has gigabit ethernet. But I seem to only be able to get 10/100 on it. I have looked at the device control and can only find 10 or 100, half or full duplex; or auto negotiation under speed and duplex. My router is showing the connection as 100m rather than the 1000m it shows for my other gigabit devices.The device is labeled as Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller
how to use a computer in the time before Windows, comfortable with using command prompt. Have fixed many issue over the years with old and crappy computers, through research. Not very familiar with wireless connections. Last week laptop started freezing on Windows load, going automatically to safe mode. If I restart the computer after loading in safe mode, Windows opens fine the second time. Have tried stopping all other programs from loading at start up. If I do a system restore, everything works fine for a few days, then starts freezing on Windows load again. When Window does load I get the application error: The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0150002) click ok to close. but can still log in to Windows. Also, When I plug my cell phone, via USB to computer it charges fine and can upload and download between the phone and laptop, however, if I connect a (USB) thumb drive I cannot open the folder, save to it or open from it. This is the issue I wish to fix first so I don't have to keep switching between my ancient and slow CPU and my Laptop trying to fix the above problem(s): Laptop recently stopped connecting to home WiFi (automatically or manually.) Ran troubleshooters, suggested I do a full power off the router and turn it back on. Did that still not connecting. Did a full power off of laptop and modem and router and restarted everything. Still doesn't work. Used manual Diagnostic tool and it fails the association test, suggests that I check the profile. I don't know much about wireless as I said, so I do not know what profile I need to check or where it is located.The laptop does connect sporadically to the internet at home, via WiFi, for a few minutes at a time on its own, according to the wireless network connections. During this time I see one of two messages in wireless network connections: Unidentified network or limited access. If I go into the network sharing centre it says I am connected to an unidentified public network and shows that this network is not connecting to the internet. If I use the manual diagnostic tool at this time it passes the association test but fails the ping test.
Distance from the router does not seem to make a difference.Often when it is disconnected I cannot even see my router in the list of available wireless network connections.I can connect wireless to the router from my phone and have had no problems even while the laptop is unable to connect and the old CPU I am currently on, which is a wired connection, has had no trouble either. Other things I tried:I've scanned for hardware changes in my network connections: none and tried updating my driver software: nothing to update all are enabled.
I have just got a new laptop from work (Lenovo T410) but cannot seem to access the internet via wireless at home. The wireless mode at home is 802.11n. On my previous laptop (a Lenovo T60), I had to buy a belkin N Wireless USB adapter and used that. But I don't think I need to use it on the T410, right? When I switch the T410 on, the Access Connections box comes on and I can see all the different wireless networks available and they have good strength, but I just cannot connect, I don't know why? I have entered the 10 digit encryption key.
I can not connect to the home WiFi network using this laptop, yet I can connect this laptop to other public networks using the WiFi. I can connect this laptop tp the home network using cable to the Netgear Broadband wireless router, and I can connect to the home network with other devises ie ipads, ipods and another windows XP laptop.I had McAfee installed which was not working and I have uninstalled it.Here is a copy of an ipconfig /all command I used

I have an Acer 5741Z laptop that I recently got out of the shop (had jack replaced). Now I'm having issues connecting to the internet at my home. The computer detects my Belkin router/network, but when I click on Connect I keep getting the message "unable to connect".
I have a laptop - Lenovo E43 in which i tried to connect with wifi, when wireless nework connection is opened, it is showing No wireless networks were found in range. and when IPCONFIGured, Media state...:Media disconnected is displaying under the Ethernet adapter Wireless Network connection.
I have my laptop. I need to use my broadband connection at my home. Also I need to use my laptop with wifi at my office. We do not have any dhcp servr at office. What I am doing now is changing ip configuration at office every day manually.
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 use a Dell 2010 laptop. I have consistently been able to use wifi. On 1 Jan I moved into a new apartment shared with a friend. My friend allows me to use the wifi by sharing the password. My friend's computer is a MacBook. But I cannot access wifi! Why is that? I am able to see the available connections and to see the one that my friend is using. But I am unable to access it. I tried manually adding the new wifi network. It shows up with "limited access" -- it does not enable use of internet.
I am attempting to connect to a residential wireless network on a router that was installed up by an engineer this morning.When the engineer was here he connected an HP laptop using XP to the wireless router. At first there was an issue with the connection (seemingly the same error message I am getting now), he did something to the wireless settings on the laptop, which stupidly I didn't see, and it successfully connected.When I attempted to connect my laptop to the same wireless router I got the same error message:'Connection Unsuccessful'.I clicked Diagnose Problem and got this: 'This computer has got limited or no connectivity'.I first selected the 'Automatically get new IP settings for the network adapter' but this didn't solve the problem. I then viewed the Wireless Network Security Settings and as far as I can see they are identical to those on the HP laptop that has successfully connected: [code] I then connected my laptop to the router using the ADSL cable and was able to connect to the internet, but I am still unable to get a wireless connection. When I view the wireless connections I am 'Connected With Limited Access'.
I have been unable to connect to my wifi on my laptop. I am currently using my moms laptop I know there are 3 wifi hotspots around my house. None of the hotspots show up in my network sharing, yet I'm connected to one of them right now using a dif laptop
I have a Cisco Linksys Router Model WRT120N - which is connect wirelessly to my MAC home computer. I also have a Dell D630 Laptop using WindowsXP. I have recently moved and my laptop used to connect to my wireless router (when I was at my old house) But now at my new house my laptop wont connect. It will connect wirelessly at other locations. The laptop picks up the wireless name and shows full strength.
About three days ago my Lenovo desktop lost its internet connection. The two other machines in my house (wireless laptop and desktop) both still have internet. It appears I have the issue of my IP address being 169.254.xx.xx and subnet mask being 255.255.0.0.All of these have been unsuccessful.
I'm running a Lenovo Y560 0646 which appears to have been upgraded by he previous owner. I've owned it for just a little over a month now and it has functioned admirably. The Network card is an Atheros Ar9285 Wireless Network Adaptor. It is my belief that the card may actually be integrated directly into the motherboard, but I'm not entirely sure of that.Recently, though, the clumsy wielding of a cable led to the destruction of the screen. I had to wait until my upcoming paycheck before ordering a new one and so continued to use the laptop through the use of an external flat screen monitor. During this period my internet worked flawlessly. However, a problem occurred when it came time to take out the cracked monitor to write down the model number for ordering.I've dealt with internal electronics before, so I knew to be delicate. I removed the broken screen, took down the information and then reattached it. However, once I booted up, I came to find that my computer could not connect to any network. I broke down the case, and made sure all wires were connected, and they were. I attempted to attach my computer directly to the modem, only to have that more or less fail.
I've followed several online tips in hopes of finding a solution but all has failed. My router is functioning properly, as I can still connect with my other wireless and wired devices. Windows device manager claims my wireless card and driver are functioning properly. I've completely uninstalled and reinstalled it a couple of times to no effect. I've run Ipconfig and it says the Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection are media disconnected and under connection it says "Specific DNS Suffix". I'm at wits end here. I've tried the winsock fix and the IPv4 and 6 fixes.
My laptop is reading a full WiFi signal from my router. I am currently connected to the router via Ethernet on the same laptop. I've been reading tons of old threads to troubleshoot this. I'm at a loss. I have used this current networking hardware for more than a year without any problems. I do have a pretty old router but my iPod connects to the WiFi no problem at the moment. Here's what I've tried so far:
- soft reset of router - power cycle modem and router - removed saved network information from the laptop
I've got a Dell laptop with Windows 7 and I'm unable to connect to public wifi. I have a home wireless connection that I'm able to connect to, and I'm able to connect at friends houses. But when I try to connect at a local coffee shop, it doesn't work.
I was using the Internet fine lastnight switched on my acer laptop this morning and wasnt connected to the router. I tried connecting but it just fails. I'm still able to connect with my iPad and iPod. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network adapter however this fails to successfully install. I've searched for hours but can't find a solution. I'm also unable to reset the router etc because I live in china and the router is in a roommates room whose door is locked.
Respected sir, i would like you to know that i have purchased a Lenovo G570 laptop & did not able to connect to the internet through WiFi, so what I have to do so I can surf the network through wifi facility.l
Today my laptop (Lenovo T420 with Win 7) started acting up and I can't connect to any wireless networks anymore. I remember having the same problem just after buying the computer, but then it just disappeared and I never found out what happened. I tried restarting, turning the wifi switch off/on and also enabling/disabling the adapter, but nothing worked. Then I tried switching the wifi card with another identical one, but that didn't solve the issue either.
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
I'm having a bit of a trouble with my eMachines netbook M250. I was going to contact their customer support, but for some reason their services kept telling me that "That serial number is not in our database".I have 3 laptops and a desktop PC. Two of my laptops are connected through wireless and my Desktop PC through a cable. Now this small isnt finding the wireless network my other computer are connected to. It has found all other wireless networks, tons of them (neighbors, city wifi, etc), but just cant find my home wifi.I have reinstalled windows XP and reinstalled the wireless drivers. Also checked that they're the newest out there.
My laptop suddenly stops detecting my home wifi network, when all other laptops n gadgets in the house is able to. I am able to see other available wifi networks but not mine when it is just 2 mtrs away.
The wireless Internet at home is not working on my laptop anymore. It's working fine on my mobile as well as with other wireless networks at school for example. No matter what browser I use I usually dont get to any website. Most of the time it says access: local only, or local and internet, or limited connectivity. If I'm lucky at the right time I can open a website but then it's gone again.
My wireless printer works intermittently and the computer shows I need to install an "ethernet controller" which then does not install. How do I install an ethernet controller on my Lenovo with Windows 7 Home Premium?
I have an Asus 1001 PG netbook. I am having problems with my home wifi network. When I turn on my laptop, I do not receive the signal for our home wifi network. However, I know that the network is working because other laptops at home are able to detect it. I don't think there is anything wrong with the laptop because I can still detect other wifi networks in our neighborhood. The problem only seems to be with our home wifi network. If I restart the computer, the problem is usually solved. This is not an efficient solution for me as I am used to turning my laptop off on hibernate and I don't like having to reopen all my documents.
I'm having trouble keeping my lenovo laptop (running windows 8) connected to the internet. I have been able to connect successfully to multiple wireless networks and access the internet until I tried to connect to the new network.Initially everything is OK - I can connect to the network and access the internet. However after a short period of time (anywhere from a few seconds to 20 minutes) the network connection will change to limited, without internet access. If I simply disconnect and reconnect to the network the internet will immediately be working again (at least for a few seconds/minutes)alternatively, if I run the troubleshooter, I always get the message that the default gateway is not available, which has been fixed by resetting the wi-fi adapter.
I own a Lenovo u310 laptop that I got recently and I used it for two days, and I tried using it today but the internet won't work. There is a yellow triangle with an exclamation point, and clicking it tells me I am connected, but have no internetWhen I troubleshoot, it says "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding."
I recently bought a new laptop (lenovo G560e) running win 7. when i turn it on it disables our old laptop also win 7 my android and console. If i turn on old laptop first everything is fine its so annoying.
