I have an HP C4385 All in One. Printer works fine and I can access the device embedded web page but I cannot access the scanner. Device Manager shows scanner and includes the IP address.

Scanners and Cameras page shows ICON (scanner & camera as a single Icon). Clicking on it show properties. It says Port = Auto. If I start the HP Scanner software, it just hangs.

A:hp laptop not detecting home wifi network

Hello @rohitseth21 , Welcome to the HP Forums! I understand you're having connection issues on your 15-R005TX notebook.If the notebook sees the hotspot but doesnt see the routers SSID you might be better off inquiring with your Internet Service Provider or router manufacturer. Here are some steps you can try. Powercycle the network:1. Shut down your notebook.2. Unplug the power to your router.3. Unplug the power to your modem.4. Wait at least 45 seconds.5. Plug in the modem, and wait for it to come back online.6. Plug in the router, and wait for it to come back online.7. Turn on your notebook, and test your connection.Reset the TCP/IP settings on your PC:1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.2. Right click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.3. In the window that opens type "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" without quotes, and press enter.4. Restart your PC and test.It may also help to reset the winsock catalogue:1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.2. Right click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.3. In the window that opens type "netsh winsock reset" without quotes, and press enter.4. Restart your PC and test.Reinstall the network adapter drivers:1. Download the drivers from here but do not run them yet.2. Go to your start screen/menu and type Device Manager.3. Expand Network adapters.4. Right click on the wireless adapter and choose Uninstall.5. Run the downloaded drivers from step 1.6. Restart your PC and test.If those three steps do not resolve the issue, try this document published by Microsoft for networking issues: Wired and wireless network problems. You can change the operating system with the dropdown in the upper-right corner of the document. Hopefully this helps!

Hi everyone,

I need some help with a laptop, all of a sudden it stopped detecting my home WiFi network.

The laptop worked fine with this network before and it was configured to connect automatically.
The laptop detects the whole other bunch of networks around here (neighbours and such) but not my home. Other PCs and smartphones detect and connect to my network just fine.

I tried restarting the laptop, reinstalling and updating the drivers for the WiFi card and nothing worked.

It's an Asus laptop with Windows 8.1

I thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Hi, I have a HP 15-g009ax. Since a few days it has sarted showing Wifi problem. Certain times after restarting the laptop, the wifi doesn't work. Even the Wifi logo doesn't show in the taskbar. At this time the laptop doesn't detect the wifi. Trouble shooting has also not helped, cause it only detects Lan connection. I have tried updating & reinstalling the drivers, but in vain. The wifi starts automatically after unspecific time & restarts. After removing the battery of the laptop & reinstalling it back, the wifi starts working again. Can you please let me know for what should be the problem. Thanks

I just installed Windows 7 on my laptop, and now the internet connection doesn't work. When I go into the Network and Sharing Center, there are only two options instead of the usual 3. They are " ISAACFOX-PC" and "Internet" and there is a line with a red X in between. The router is not located, although it is working on the desktop I am typing this on. Any suggestions? I am using a Netgear NVG150 router.

Hi VVin8 and welcome to the forum. Sorry for the late reply. One of the things I would try first is doing a 30-30-30 reset of the router and set everything up again from scratch. If that doesn't work then maybe a driver problem.

Here is how to do the 30-30-30 reset: Hard reset or 30/30/30 - DD-WRT Wiki

My HP Laptop is not able to discover some of the WiFi networks. The problem is with some Wifi networks, NOT ALL. Some are detected and some are not even listed. I am able to connect to the networks on my mobile that are not shown/detected by my Laptop. Please provide some suggestions so that I can connect to ALL WIFI networks. I've tried updating the drivers, uninstalling and re installing drivers but stuck at the same place.

A:HP r204tx not detecting SOME Wifi networks

Hi: Your notebook only has a single band (2.4 GHz) wifi card, so that may be the reason it does not see all the wireless networks nearby.  It will not see or connect to any wireless network running on the 5.0 GHz band. It should be able to see and connect to any wireless network broadcasting on the 2.4 GHz band.

Try changing the channel number on your router, via your router's web-based configuration utility. A higher number is better (in the range 8 to11 gives the best wireless range).

I have a linksys WRT54GS wireless router. I share a wireless connection with a few other people in the house. The security setting are pretty basic, WEP with a simple key, broadcasted ssid and no MAC filtering. Lately we have been experiencing some ridiculous lag and I'm suspecting that we have some freeloaders. My question(s) are:

(A) How do I figure out what devices are accessing my router?

(B) How can I collect the MAC addresses of all the computers in the house without going into each one?

Hi everybody.

I have a compaq v5000 notebook. With a broadcom 802.11 b/g wlan wireless built in. About 3 days ago it stopped detecting any access points except an unsecured computer to computer network named "CMU" which isn't much help at all

Now I know the Access points exist because when I scan for them on my PSP (Playstation Portable) it can detect and connect to the access points flawlessly.

Anybody have any ideas as to what is happening? I hope my wireless card isnt dying or anything like that.

If you are trying to use an integrated wireless adapter is it switched on?

What is listed in Device Manager under Network Adapters? What, if any, warnings or errors are anywhere in Device Manager?

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool. Also show ...

With "show hidden devices" turned on, this is what I see for network adaptors:

I can connect to crappy unprotected networks and i can see my own network, however, I can't connect to it. When it says "waiting for network" it just gives up after a minute or so.

A:Computer Not Detecting Wireless Printer's Wifi Signal

Not being familiar with Epson devices nor with using the direct Wi-Fi of multi-function printers I have to ask: is the direct wireless signal broadcast continuously or does the Epson go idle after a time and turn off the wireless? If the latter, are you sure the signal is being broadcast all the times you try to detect it on your PC?

Hi there

This USB Wifi adapter seems to be a MEGA performer --Lovely finally to be able to THINK of getting rid of LAN cables all over the place.

I've no probs with decent HD Movie streaming from a SERVER with one of these (I unplugged the LAN and inserted the USB Wifi adapter into a USB3 slot --note this needs genuine USB3 to work at proper speed). My Home router can deliver 802.11ac so no probs there.

Brilliant piece of kit and NO MORE CABLES !!!!!!. Wifi will soon be able to deliver comparable speeds to LAN especially for HOME networks. !!!

Here's the UK Link but is available in US and Europe. In any case it's delivered (in my case) by Amazon S.A.R.L (Luxembourg) so no tax !!!. even though I ordered from UK web site --they will ship outside UK tax free.

I've never had problems with this before, but i went travelling and have come back and my laptop simply doesnt seem to detect my network with wireless.

My wireless itself is activated fine and is detecting upto 6 other networks none of which are mine or i can access but i am with Linksys and it's just not detecting that. Internet works fine when i access plugged in with a cable.

We also have another computer in the house with a wireless stick, this however does pick up the Linksys network perfectly, so it must be something to do with the laptop.

Little confused, so any help would be appreciated!

A:detecting network type.

What is the distance from the computer to the wireless access point (router) and what kind of objects are between them? What is the signal strength being reported on your computer?

Have you given your wireless access point a unique, non-default, SSID Name. This should help you in determining if your computer is trying to connect to the right access point.

My pc detects that there is another computer in my network. Thing is I don't have a router or home network in place. I have a wireless cable modem (Motorola). When I check my network and sharing center it shows my pc but it also shows WNR2000 router and WNR2000. Through more looking there is a name for them that is password protected. I also found a place that shows 'people near me'. I do live in an apartment I often see other wireless modems in the connect to, but I have never had one to show up in my network and sharing center.
What if anything do I need to do to correct this issue?

Hi, i have a laptop and it had a version of windows 8 release preview on it. I just finished re-installing windows 7 over top of it with the key that came with the laptop, and when i booted it up it could not connect to the internet. I did some troubleshooting and it looks like i have no network adapter installed. Also, in the device manager under other devices it shows and Ethernet and Network controller and both have a yellow exclamation mark next to them.
I have also read that i should mess around with some options in the control panel > network and internet > network connections menu but there is nothing there! I am at a loss so i am hoping maybe somebody here can give me some advice?

I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 onto a laptop which once has had working internet.
Since the installation has been completed, I no longer have access to internet. Wireless or wired.

In the bottom right of the screen it has the network icon with a red X through it. When I try to troubleshoot it says:
Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. Seeing as the network adapter has worked previously I am stumped. I have tried installing drivers but none of them have seemed to work.
It seems like the computer is not registering there is hardware for the internet.

Also, when I go into my device manager, there isn't an option for network adapters there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as this has been stumping me all day long.

Does your inspiron detect other networks (such as a neighbor's wireless?)
Have you ensured that the wireless radio is turned on? (a switch on the case or a key combination)
Have you ensured that the device is operating properly? (check in Device Manager)
Have you reinstalled the wireless drivers from the Dell website?
Have you checked to see that the wireless card is properly connected and seated in the system's motherboard?

Is this printer connected to another computer or is it one of the network aware HPs?
If the latter, you may either have to rerun the software or try installing it as a local printer. For some reason the printer connected to a router is often considered local.

If connected to another computer make sure print and file sharing is enabled on both.

can we see an xirrus screen shot and is your wireless signal listed there ?
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Direct link to the program is here

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

A user guide is available here

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

When I start up my laptop, the network icon in the lower right area of the task bar appears with a red cross, "Not Connected", despite the Wi-Fi switch on the laptop being in the ON position. And after a few restarts, when the icon does say "Connections available", it only shows Dial-up & VPN networks, and sometimes Mobile Broadband Networks. It doesn't detect any wireless networks. Sometimes, the icon turns into a dial-up icon with a red cross.

I use a BSNL Broadband modem with a NETGEAR wireless router. I haven't faced this problem before. I ran diagnostics, and it says "plug an ethernet adapter". Please help !!

I have attached an image with the diagnostics result, and the troublesome icon is circled in the lower right corner.

A:Cannot detect one particular wireless network, others detecting fine

Make sure your landlord entered the MAC address correctly. Go over it with him again. Also, make sure you are recording the correct number. I've made mistakes in the past and recorded the incorrect number. From a command prompt, type; ipconfig /all
Look for the wireless adapters physical address.
I once wrote down the "ethernet" adapter's address and then spent hours trying to figure out why I couldn't connect.

I lean more towards the adapter.
1. The fact that it required several restarts to "come to life" and connect to your network.
2. A system restore did not fix the problem.
3. A clean install of windows 7 did not fix the problem.

Okay, usually when you hover over the networks listed and available from the taskbar icon, you get a nice little window with a few helpful tidbits of info for each listed network when you mouse action hover over the names. It tells you the encryption type, and the SSID, plus a few other details.

Well, on my computer, the information is appearing behind the list to where I can't read it. The network list is overlapping on top of the hover info. Talk about annoying. I searched for various things on google, with no luck. I tried:

Windows 7 network list obscuring hover details, and various other combinations to no avail. Anyone here have a clue what might be breaking this? I'd like the hover details to appear properly so I can read it. In the meantime I've installed the free version of Acrylic Wifi to work around the issue. Thanks.

A:Wifi Network info/details appearing behind Network List on hover.

The problem must be driver based or an add-on program because I don't get any of that. All I get is the name and whether it's connected or not. Check that your adaptor driver is up to date and/or the program you use to display the data is up to date.

Forgot to mention:
Dell adds "bloatware" to their PCs to "improve the user's experience" so I would check Dell Support for your specific model and look for updates.

Ok so have a Dell Inspiron laptop that is running on Windows XP and I am unable to connect to the internet This happened a little over a week ago suddenly and everything that I have tried has been unsuccessful I connect to the internet through an ethernet cable that plugs directly from the wall to my computer however I cannot get internet because my computer is telling me that a quot Network Cable is Unplugged quot when reads detecting cable, a network cable "network unplugged" error not Computer it clearly is still plugged in I have tried using different cables and in different rooms of my apartment and yet I still have the same problem My other roommates are not having any issues so this lead me to believe there is probably a problem with my computer My computer skills are on a basic general knowledge basis so I have no idea how to Computer not detecting a network cable, error reads "network cable unplugged" begin to attack this problem Strangely enough in my attempts to get on the internet I turned on my wireless connection which displays a full connection in the icon at the bottom of my screen at good or excellent quality yet when I open firefox or explorer the browsers I use I still have no internet I am not sure if this is an indicator of the same problem I am having or just a separate issues but I am in desperate need of help So please if you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them nbsp

I'm building a subscription wifi network for our area.

Cisco Aironet 1550 series:
Proxim Orinocor series:

The Proxim seems like the better product, and sells for a bit less.

Will I need to purchase anything else besides several of these for the network? I'm assuming the 'home' router connects to a PC (or the PC via the gateway address) for managing the network.

Thanks allot for your insight.

Is there a way to setup network profiles or something so that when I bring my Surface Pro to work and connect to the wireless network there it will use the static ip address I have but when I disconnect and then connect to my home wifi it will go back to DHCP? On my MacBook Pro I can go into the network settings and change the location profile I have setup for networks but I don't see anything like this for Windows 8.

A:Specific network settings based on wifi network

You can go into IPv4 Properties of this NIC, then you can use the Alternate configuration tab to set up the alternate IP, or use the Advanced tab to add a static IP/gateway/DNS etc. to TCP/IP.

Sorry if this has already been discussed. Couldn't find on a search.

I have a small secured network in my office with a modem/router networking three computers wirelessly. I would like to add another router that would allow clients in the waiting room of my office to have internet access. Could you assist me in a setup or map? I already have a wireless Linksys router available to use as the second router.

Thank You

A:Adding Wifi Network to an Already Secured Network

Are those in the waiting room to be allowed into OR forbidden access to your Lan systems?

You already have

to Isolate the W.R from your lan, connect

Code: (assumed 192.168.1.x or 0.x)
+---new router (new channel+ssid+no encryption)
set LAN addresses and DHCP for 192.168.10.x

add firewall rule to ALL your existing LAN systems to deny src address range= thru 10.255

I'm with Cogeco cable ISP and would like to use a wireless router. Cogeco tells me that they do not support wireless routers although a cable technician told me that D-Link WiFi routers work and LinkSys ones don't,

Can anybody tell me which wireless routers work with Cogeco?
and Where I can purchase one?


A:WiFi Network

I suspect that almost any standard name brand router will work. There's nothing unique about their service, I suspect the tech just liked D-Link.

I just upgrade my motherboard, CPU and RAM, reactivated Windows 10 and installed updates. Downloaded a couple more programs this morning and then the internet quit on me. I have two other computers on this wifi network and both have internet so I know that's OK. I have run the diagnostic and it tells me that "the default gateway is not available" What the heck does that mean and how do I resolve this please?

The stupid thing is that every so often the icon shows that I have internet but when I open my browser (Firefox) it won't link to any sites.

Try this:

In Device Manager, right-click on the NIC and select Properties. Then go to the Power Management tab, and uncheck the box that says "let computer turn off to save power". See if that makes a difference.

In the Oct 8, 2009 issue of the Windows Secrets newsletter, Fred Langa addressed the question: Who's sneaking onto your Wi-Fi connection?
The article is in the paid edition of the newsletter, so I'm not going to repeat it. However, his advice boils down to using the web interface to check with the router.
