Preferred Solution: Can't find 'Wireless Network Connection" icon on windows 7

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can't find 'Wireless Network Connection" icon on windows 7

have a look and see if its disabled in the bios

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enabled in Bios / Setup
as the PC starts you should be told how to enter the bios / Setup - one of the F keys usually F2, F10, F11 or del key is often used
MAKE SURE you DO NOT change any settings and look to see if there is a setting for the wireless or WLAN
if its disabled change it to enabled
if its enabled - then exit without saving
if you cant find a setting then exit without saving

------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Try reseating the wireless adapter

If the adapter is easily accessible, usually through a cover on the bottom of the laptop.
Remove and reinsert it carefully and firmly to make sure it is not loose.
Then remove and carefully and firmly replace it several times to cure any possible looseness or corrosion.
At the same time check to make sure the antenna leads are securely attached.
Note: This is not taking the machine apart. We do not recommend removing the keyboard when that is necessary to find the wireless.

Hello,
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 with Windows XP Home operating system. There is a built in Dell Wireless 1395 802.11g Mini Card that came with the computer. I recently got a virus and had to reboot my computer. The problem is I can no longer find my wireless internet system. When I go to Control Panel>Internet Connections there isn't a "Wireless Internet Connection" option.
The other thing is, I can't use the Wireless Internet Setup Wizard because I don't have my own wireless provider (I use my computer at school to connect to the free campus-wide wireless internet).
Please Help.
Thanks!

Everything is working perfectl...ssing and appreciate for a quick help please.

I just did a clean install on my windows 7 ultimate 32 bit computer to 64 bit. At first, my wireless internet was working fine, but it suddenly dropped to "limited access". I'm using a Linksys WUSB100 ver. 2 wireless network USB adapter. I've already tried downloading the latest driver for windows 7 64 bit, 3.0.3.0 from the Linksys website. I've also tried restarting my computer and the wireless modem. I did a system restore to the point where it was last working but it still isn't working. I can't think of anything else to do, please help.

Running XP on 2 computers. Have them connected by a router. I set the router IP to 192.168.3.1 Everything connects great! When I connect to a wireless network, it all connects, but doesn't work ("connection timed out" or "Page not found" errors. The wire connection shows an IP of 192.168.2.1. If I disable my Local Area Network, the internet connects perfectly. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I CAN USE MY LOCAL AREA NETWORK AND THE WIRELESS CONNECTION AT THE SAME TIME! Frustrating to the max! Any network specialists out there who can tell me how to fix this? Thanks!!!

You should know that x.x.2.1 is incorrect. For the router address shown, all devices that connect to it *must* be 192.168.3.x where x > 1 and < 255.

I would suspect that you have some static configuration data in the devices.

You want your router to offer DHCP in the range 2->32 (that's more than enough) and
you want all systems to use DHCP for the IP address and DNS settings.

Remove anything in the Alternative Configurations

Hey guys need some urgent help. I have a toshiba laptop (MS XP PRO) with wireless interface networking.

I have made several tempts to connect it to my desktop(server) through a wireless router. The help/support on MS says that i should go to control panel go to network connections and click on wireless network icon and click view available wireless networks. The thing is I don't have a wireless network icon to click on.

Help will be much appretiated...

 

A:Can't find wireless network icon

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands:

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

Quote:




By default, the Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client is installed on a Windows XP Professional computer. The Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client starts the Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP) Discovery service, that listens on port 1900 for NOTIFY directives. NOTIFY directives are messages that advertise the availability of UPnP-capable devices on the network. If you do not require the functionality of the Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client, you can remove the client from your computer. Doing so can help lower the risk of Internet-based attacks to port 1900 on your computer.

Hey all.

I have a slight problem. I recently did updates for my Vista laptop and when it restarted, I found that my Wireless Connection icon was missing from my toolbar. I right clicked, went to Properties, Notification Area and looked for the place where you can check the boxes. The only one that allows me to check is Clock. Volume, Network and Power are all grayed out. I cannot check them.

I have uninstalled the updates that were done to my computer and restared, but the boxes stay the same. Anyone have an idea as to how I can get them back?

Thanks!

Hello,

whenever I'm connected to a network, the attached icon is displayed. The other icons (e.g. the spinning wheel thing when establishing a connection) do work, but the "connected" icon seems to have disappeared for no reason. I did not install any new software and I don't know what else might have triggered this, it was just that way when I booted my pc a few days ago.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

You might have a two adapters enabled. Right click on the bars and open the network and sharing center. Then in the left pane click on change adapter settings and see if there are 2 adapters present. If so disable the one that isn't wireless..I don't know if the two are related but mine used to look like this the left pic now it looks like the right pic. And it happened right after some windows updates.

The wireless network connection button that can be reached from start, control panel, network and internet connections, network connections has dissapeared. Only the local are connection icon remains. I have a windows xp media center edition computer, and get the connection from my dad using a wireless netowrk adapter. Everyone else using using it is not having the same problem. If it helps, I think the problem started ( it happened a while ago so I'm not sure if this is why) because I may have snapped the wireless network adapter I was using in half nwhile it was connected to my computer. This may have happened before or after the button dissapeareaed. PLease help me find the icon!

However now it won't connect to the internet. I try going into the control panel and network connections to the wireless network connection icon, but that isn't there anymore. I'm not sure if the problem is with the linksys router or what.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

You may try a System Restore, go back a day or 2 before this occured.

If that didn't help, see if disabling then enabling your Network Adapters from Device Manager helps. Here's a general Tutorial on how to use Device Manager.

Hi, earlier this summer I reformatted by computer (Dell Inspiron 600m laptop) and since then I cannot connect to the internet wirelessly. I am able to connect through an ethernet cable, but under network connections there is no option for Wireless Network Connection (see screenshot). I have downloaded the drivers for my type of laptop from Dell's website but nothing has worked. I've been Googling and searching this forum for the same problem but have been unable to find the solution. There is more information in the attached screenshot.

Dears,
I have a laptop in my hand that belong to somebody.
issue is that when ever we click on wireless icon close to clock, there will be no pop up menu of "connect to network"
for example this below pop up menu after clicking is not showing.

I've tried everything to get it back. In my network connections, it only shows my local area connection. I can't connect to a wireless network, and my wifi light on my keyboard isn't even lit.
I don't have any switches or buttons on my keyboard either that would allow me to enable or disable wireless internet.
I do have a wireless card built into my computer, and I have been able to connect to wireless networks for the three years that I've owned this laptop. It basically just stopped working a few weeks ago.
By the way, it's Windows XP. Anyone have any idea how to get my Wifi back?

Hey, i'm not really good at explaining things, but I'll try my best.
The problem is that I have an old computer Acer Aspire 5315 which has this problem with WiFi, it can't find Wireless Network Connection.
I tried installing drivers but that doesn't help, I don't kow if wireless switch is responding, because nothing happens when I click it. But I does work well when I insert ethernet cable, and everything works just fine on another laptop. Is it a problem with computer it self? Is it possible to fix it?
I'm uploading a picture which shows that the laptos is able to find LAN connection, but it can't event detect Wireless Network Connection (so I can't manually enable it, how many videos, forums suggest)

A:Laptop doesn't find Wireless Network Connection

Check in Device Manager to see if it is listed there.

There may be a button or Fn key combination to turn on/off the wireless, see if that's the case.
If above fail, try loading defaults in BIOS (either first screen or exit menu).

I've tried ipconfig/release and the fix that has netsh ip textlog in it and i've also disabled the IP helper. None of these have worked. I looked for webroot in services.msc but couldnt find it so i don't think that's the problem either.

A:Unable to connect to wireless network. "Internet connection is too slow."

if the router is working with a cable connection, then its unlikely to be the modem , unless thats also a router and you are using it for DHCP

you say the modem is connected by cable to the router
and any device connected to the router by cable works perfectly - is that correct

on the old router - have you removed the wireless security and see if you can connect ?

carried out a full power cycle - see below

also it would be worth making a note of the router configuration and do a factory reset on the router and re setup and try again

with a PC connected by a cable direct to the modem can we see an ipconfig /all
now do a power cycle and connect the router
with a PC connected by a cable direct to the router can we see an ipconfig /all

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply

How to power cycle

&#8220;power cycle&#8221; process to reboot or reset the modem/router

Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes. We have found in some instances you need to wait at least 15 minutes
Plug the power cords back in, but don&#8217;t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

Hi all, so I have gotten the above message when trying to connect to my wireless, and it's saying I have limited access to the connection. I know it's not a router/modem issue as all other computers in the house are connecting without trouble. This all happened after I attempted to uninstall "Adaware" which I had installed to find and remove a nasty keylogger. Halfway through uninstalling I got a blue screen of death, and when I rebooted, I couldn't connected to the wireless. Anyone know of a potential solution?

It's most likely an indication of some issue with the hardware in the network. My guess is you're having a log of collisions on the Ethernet link.

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Make/model of the broadband modem. If dial-up, please specify.
Make/model of the router (if any).

hello all,

my internet has previously worked without any problems. two days ago, it said i was connected with limited connectivity. i tried disabling/enabling my wireless, unplugging the wireless router, and running troubleshoot. the computer said that my wireless network connection doesnt have a valid IP configuration. neither of my roomates had this issue (they can still get to the internet fine). i was worried that it was something with my internet, so i went to a friends house and it worked there. i then ran system restore to a period when internet worked, thinking it could have been a bad update, but still no change. i went into my IP address configuration, and it is all set to automatically find. not sure where to go from here. any help?

i have an asus computer, windows 7 ultimate (32bit).

A:"Wireless network connection" doesnt have a valid IP configuration...

If you can type ipconfig/all into an Elevated Command Prompt then post a screen shot of the results it would be very helpful.

It sounds like the wireless profile for your home connection was somehow corrupted or changed.

You can usually straighten that out by going into the Wireless Connection Manager in the Network and Sharing Center and making sure that the settings match the ones in your router.

The Bonjour service which installs with iTunes and Adobe Photo shop is also famous for causing this problem.

To fix ...
Run MsConfig

Under the Services tab uncheck the service called "##Id_String1.6844[... and then a bunch of numbers]" by Apple

Reboot and problem solved

To delete the Bonjour service.
1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Bonjour
2. Rename the mdnsNSP.dll file in that folder to mdnsNSP.old
3. Restart your computer
4. Delete the Program Files\Bonjour folder

I constantly try the troubleshooting and it usually just tells me that there is something wrong with the router but obviously not if all the other computers work.

Is that the reasoning behind all my problems?

Actually the information that you've received from the trouble shooter is probably more accurate, then you give it credit for. I suspect you will need to look into a firmware update for your router and see if that might resolve your issue.

Hi All,

Hoping to get some direction or help here...

I have two Toshiba laptops, both have inbuilt WiFi connections.
I have a Satellite P20 with Win XP and a Satellite P100 with Vista.
I connect to a Cable Modem through a Buffalo Wireless Access Point running WEP and with SSID Broadcast On.

The P20 (XP) unit connects with no problems.
The P100 (Vista) intermittently drops to "Limited Connectivity". Sometimes switching the WiFi card off and on, using the external switch, will return the connection, as will Disabling/Enabling the card. But, in each case, the connection normally lasts just a few minutes before dropping again.

I have reset the Modem, and the Wireless Access Point, but with no improvement.

Any ideas?

Hello mystic, and welcome to Sevenforums!

First, do you have the latest driver installed for it? I don't know what version of windows you have so here is the general link to the drivers: Samsung - you will need the wireless driver(s). Uninstall your current wireless driver before installing the new one, which means you will need to download the new one first or use a LAN cable to have an internet connection to download the driver.

Here is an internet troubleshooting guide you might be able to use: Internet Troubleshooting Guide

However, it sounds like this computer works at home, just not at the hospitol, so it may be some kind of incompatability or any number of reasons. Make sure you have all windows updates installed as that can sometimes help such issues.

I was connected to my neighbors wireless network via Linksys for several months, but after he had it shut off and reconnected they gave him a different IP address, ID and password. I have all the passwords and the signal shows up, but it is continually "aquiring a network address". Does he have to change something in his settings to allow access once again?

A:Wireless connection "acquiring network address" continually

Let's give this a shot, practicing our ipconfig and netsh commands...

Open an elevated command prompt.

netsh winsock reset catalog

netsh int ip reset reset.log

ipconfig /release (be patient)

ipconfig /renew (be patient)

ipconfig /all

should show your ip address. Hopefull this will work for you.

It may help to reset the N900 Netgear router using the reset button on the side of the router. It's fairly typical for the wireless to go out while the wired connection will keep on working.

It sometimes requires a 30-30-30 reset to fix the router.

Hi.

I'm trying to connect a laptop to my home WLAN but the laptop's 'Wireless Connection' icon is nowhere to be found. When I go to 'Add Hardware', Windows finds a 'Network Controller' (I assume that means the NIC), but says I need to either connect to the Internet or insert the CD (which I don't have) in order to install the hardware.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

A:No 'Wireless Connection' Icon, Windows XP

What version of Windows are you running? Your profile says Windows 7 but you are posting in the XP Forum?
Go to Start/Search (7 or Run in XP) type devmgmt.msc (press Enter for XP) Right click the devmgmt icon in the search results and Run As Administrator (7) In the Device Manager, any devices with yellow marks need to have drivers installed.
On an internet computer, go to the troubled computer manufacturers Support/Download Drivers site and type in your service tag# or your Make and Model# download the drivers you need, starting with the Chipset driver and installing the Network Adapters (WiFi, and Ethernet) save them to a USB Flash Drive and transfer them over to the troubled computer and install them.

Hi

Windows Vista says "Windows cannot find any network" after I installed the vista service pack 1.

Before I installed the service pack everything was fine but after installing everything turned into hell.

I tried everything i can imagine but failed to turn it back to normal.

So I rolled back the service pack but this made the problem worse.

This time when I try to reinstall the driver for my wireless adapter (which is Atheros AR5007EG), an error (-5005: 0x8000ffff) occurs while running the setup.

Now I don't even know what to do with all these stuff.

Because I'm using pre-installed vista in my leptop and no recovery points ever made before I can't just simply wipe out the whole thing.

I'm pretty sure that it's not hardware clash or something like that because it worked perfectly well two hours ago before installing the service pack.

Please help me.



ps. my laptop is Acer extensa 5220

I have a Macbook Pro that I just loaded a clean install of Windows 7 home 64 bit using bootcamp. I also have a canon printer. I loaded the printer's software in Windows, using a USB cable connected directly to the computer. The printer prints fine. But normally I have the printer connected to an Apple Airport Express wireless network, which prints fine from the Mac side of the computer. Windows see's the Airport Express wireless network and it connects to it fine. But when in Windows and I try to print a document, it can't see the printer. The printer says it is offline. How do I make Windows locate the printer?

A:Windows cannot find printer on wireless network

What Canon printer do you have? Normally if you have a network capable Canon printer, and you already have it configured for wireless printing, you don't connect your computer to it via USB to install the necessary drivers.

A:[SOLVED] windows 7 cant find my wireless network

Moving thread to the Networking Forum for better results.
First go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc right click the devmgmt icon in the search results and Run As Administrator. In the Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? If so, these devices need to have drivers installed.
Next, do you have a wireless icon in the System Tray, by the clock? When you right click it, it should give you the message View Available Wireless Networks. If you see that, does it show you your wireless network (router)? If so, can try to Connect?
Try removing all wireless profiles also, download WiFi Inspector to test the signal strength from your adapter and your router.

I just installed Windows 7 RC but I can't connect to my wireless network.  I can see the neighbors and connect to theirs but it doesn't find my D-Link DIR-615.The wireless card is an Abit Airpace that I installed as an Atheros 5600XS, and it was working fine into a computer with XP Pro.I moved the router 2 feet away from the computer and still no signal at all.Now I'm going to connect them via an ethernet cable, but that's not the way I want it.Does anyboady had the same issue or have some suggestion?Thanks a lot.

This is very strange About two weeks ago I reinstalled Win Pro x from scratch in order to properly support my new Ceton TV tuner card All of my application software is now just about fully reinstalled as well and everything's working fine The new Win is very much quot cleaner leaner and meaner quot than the previous installed version which I'd used kind of like a quot training bicycle quot over the past months Much closer to quot pure Microsoft quot with no quot foreign codec packs quot Ok my current problem seems to be totally related to Win 's Windows Firewall For some reason out of boots on this machine do NOT establish a network connection the desktop PC is quot wired quot connected to the router And then almost randomly maybe time out of I will get a network successfully established No way connection" time at prevents Firewall boot Windows "network of really predicting success or failure but each failure causes me to re-boot and try again Obviously there are several programs that start up with Windows and that need to get out to the Internet including my Sophos anti-virus looking for updates DynDNS to maintain my hostname IP address on the DynDNS site and in particular a program named CLOCKWISE which goes out to the Navy's web Windows Firewall prevents "network connection" at boot time site to get an accurate time-of-day to set my PC's clock Now CLOCKWISE also puts out a quot Big Ben quot chime sound when it sets the clock so I know if this program is working by whether or not I hear Big Ben And of course on those out of boots where network access is not established I hear no Big Ben and know something is wrong I then am forced to shut down and try it again and eventually usually it finally works Of course the next boot may again fail but I try not to re-boot if I can Ok yesterday I decided to look closer at Windows Firewall and its settings I noticed that there was no entry defined for the CLOCKWISE program I experimented by disabling Windows Firewall both home private and public and shut down and re-booted and this time CLOCKWISE had no problem getting out to the Internet at boot time and my machine had its network connection established flawlessly So I added the CLOCKWISE program to Windows Firewall and close examination revealed that it only set up an INBOUND rule Didn't make a lot of sense to me since I was really trying to let CLOCKWISE get out to the Internet and I thought that's what quot add program quot to Windows Firewall was for Anyway I then also created a new OUTBOUND rule allowing CLOCKWISE to get out Shut down and re-boot and magically CLOCKWISE starts perfectly and I have a network So I thought I'd solved the problem Then a while later when I had to re-boot again because of some other software I'd just installed this time the re-boot hung again with no network established and no Big Ben from CLOCKWISE On just the previous re-boot it worked just fine but now on the second re-boot it failed again So I again turned off Windows Firewall shut down and re-booted and once again network comes up and Big Ben sounds from CLOCKWISE I then turned on Windows Firewall because I feel better with it on than off even though I have an external router to also quot protect me quot I've been playing with this including turning Firewall off and then on again before shutting down and then re-booting and startup then works But if I then just shut down and re-boot almost always it will fail again I don't think this is tied to CLOCKWISE but rather this program's audible indication that it worked or not just tips me off that Win and Windows Firewall itself has somehow prevented network access from starting correctly And if I have Windows Firewall turned off at shutdown then the re-boot will always work fine and network is established This points directly at Windows Firewall as the likely culprit here Now what makes this machine unusual from the way Win and Windows Firewall previously worked Well there's lots mor...

A:Windows Firewall prevents "network connection" at boot time

Well, either nobody has experienced something like this or there's nothing inherently wrong with Win7 or Windows Firewall or my setup that I haven't already done or tried.

Anyway, as luck would have it, all of the re-boots I've done on this machine (as now configured, with the full-enabled newly added inbound and outbound entries in Windows Firewall for Clockwise) over the past few days have NOT seen the symptom at all! Each boot has immediately resulted in the "Big Ben" chime from Clockwise, indicating it had successfully gotten to the Internet and set the PC clock.

Of course I have no explanation for why this is now working 100% normally again (as it used to, though intermittently, even before I added the new entries to Windows Firewall for Clockwise!). Nothing else in the environment has changed.

Anyway, it still does look like Windows Firewall did at least have something to do with the intermittent boot-time failure to establish my network connection (i.e. wired connection through my Netgear router and out through the cable modem). Turn off Firewall, and boot occurs normally. Turn Firewall back on, and boot occurs intermittently normal.

And yet, last few days, Firewall is on and 100% boots have been normal!

Go figure.

i've just set up a wireless network at my place. there's 5 of us using the wifi network. so far i've gotten 4 of the laptops connected, up and running. The original computer i used to set up the network keeps showing the above error message. This message showed up in the other computers as well due to a problem with the WEP password, which has been resolved.
I have tried setting the configuration to open as well as shared but this message still keeps popping up and it cannot connect to the internet via wireless (although it works perfectly by cable) any help?
the laptop is an acer aspire 5572nwxci model running on windows xp. the router used is a dlink dir-615 wireless n router.

If this remains unresolved, here is the bump. If solved by you, share your solution with others.

Having 4 other laptops to inspect for differences in the wireless configuration properties, you may have stumbled upon an obscure setting.

The router may impose limits on the number of wireless clients connected.

I recently bought my son a D-Link DWA-25 USB Wireless adapter for his desktop but I can't seem to get it to work. Not matter what I do (I have tried every bit of advice this wonderful forum has to offer) and so for all I get is "Acquiring Network Address." When I run ipconfig, it returns and ip address of 0.0.0.0 and a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0. Customer service for D-Link and Qwest were useless (spent most of the time blaming each other), so any help you guys and gals can lend me would be stupendous.
 

A:Stuck on "Acquiring Network Address" for Wireless Adapter on Windows XP

(from a JohnWill post)

IP addresses of 0.0.0.0 are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
1. DHCP Service not running.
2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
3. Bad NIC card drivers.
4. Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, reboot the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
4. Replace the Network Interface Card.

Hi chaps

Bit of trouble with home computer (family)

Running with XP - after two or three start ups I lose my wireless connection and have to
1.right click on the start-up menu (bottom right of screen) on the icon of a PC Monitoir with a red X next to it.
2.Click on Wireless Connection Properties -
3.click Wireless Networks Tab -
4.finally check the "Use Windows to congiure wireless network settings" and click OK

Bit of a long winded solution.

I think there must be a conflict somewhere between which application controls the wireless network - but I don't know how to resolve. Any ideas?

There are - when the wireless network is running fine - two icons on the start up bar both telling me about the status of the home network - one is a series of 5 horizontal bars; the other is a monitor with two )) (green) brackets.

Thanks

Why don't we start with the make/model of the wireless router in use, as well as the wireless adapter or laptop brand. Also, what version and patch level of Windows do you use?

If you have XP-SP2, you can set the machine back to installation defaults using the following procedure.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

do you have any other devices connected and working

Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007

Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

The majority of fixes are via installing a new driver from either the Manufacturers website and if that does not resolve the issue then from the atheros web site - see item (3)

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

--- 3) The majority of members, have now used the drivers from the atheros driver site, which has resolved the issue.
- see below for direct links for windows vista and the link for all Atheros adapters and supported operating systems

--- 4) On one occasion re-setting the router back to factory default and re-configuring the router settings has resolved the issue

Drivers for the other windows operating system

You need to look down the page for your particular adapter model and then look across the columns to find your windows version.
Now click on the blue tick mark in the column under your windows version.
This will open another page for that particular adapter and that windows version.

Now click on the download button labelled " Click to Download " and wait, the file will download - you do not need to click on any other buttons to get the download started

Assuming that after all the above the wireless still does not connect to the internet, all I can suggest is to use wireless security of WEP or to get an external USB wireless card.

Please post a reply here , and keep us informed of the situation and how you finally resolved the issue.

A:windows cannot connect to the wireless network connection

Did this computer ever work on the wireless connection? or is this a problem with a new network connection?

Am assuming from the selected forum that we are dealing with windows XP. Is that correct?

From looking into the network cards that you listed it appears that the Level One card is the wireless and I'm thinking the Broadcom card is probably the wired network card on the machine. Is this computer a laptop?

I read through the manual for the level one wireless card located at http://global.level1.com/downloads.php?modelstr1=WPC&modelstr2=0301&sendtype=0
and it appears that this card has its own management software. In windows XP, if a network card has its own control software it can disable all windows control over connecting to wireless networks. Your friend should look through the installed programs for a management utility that may work to connect right away. I believe if this doesn't work, that there is a way to assign the control of wireless networks back to windows itself, but I can't remember how.

The link above to level 1's site also has downloads of the drivers for that card. The XP/Vista driver is the second one down in the driver's section.

Hi everyone, I am working on a friends HP laptop that suddenly lost it's ability to see any networks at all. When I try to enable it in network and sharing it stays disabled. Just to be sure it wasn't hardware related I ran a ubuntu live cd and was able to connect with no problems. I tried updating the drivers,installing and reinstalling the network card with no luck. I also tried letting windows repair it but it says there may be driver problems. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Larry

I have a laptop that has wireless internet connection. It says Wireless Internet Connection Not Connected. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?


 

A:Windows XP: Wireless Network Connection Not Connected

Well, you don't give us much info to work on. Did this work before? Is this YOUR network you are trying to connect to? If so, how is the network set up?

Just reinstalled my windows 7 home premium after having some issues and thus far everything is working swell, except for the fact that I can't seem to find any wireless connections under connections available- I can't even seem to set up wireless connections.

I know nothing is wrong inside the computer since my splash top allows me to go onto the internet wirelessly- so I'm guessing this has something to do with me just installing windows 7 home premium again.

Without the internet I can't download drivers or get windows updates- help!

Looked in device manager and there are three exclamations next to these drivers:
standard VGA Graphics Adapter
Network Controller
Unknown device

Can't seem to fix the exclamations since I can't get internet access (only have wireless net)

Is there anything I can download and burn to get these drivers working?

A:No wireless network connection after windows 7 reinstall?

From the device manager it is evident that Network Controller is not installed because during the installation, Windows 7 was unable to find a driver. You can perhaps download a Network Adapter Driver from Realtek and try to install it because Realtek Network Drivers work in most cases.

But the better thing to do would be to go to the computer manufacture's web-site and download and install the Driver from there. You shall also find the right drivers for the other two devices there.

see the attachment for the icon with the exclamation mark.

Even though I have connection to the Internet and my wireless Network is active, the exclamation mark and the accompanying message remain. This morning I have been on the computer for three hours, for example, and I just made the screen shot. This condition has existed on a Toshiba laptop since "day one,' a number of months now.

The icon is of no value, if it doesn't change to "connected" when appropriate.

What is wrong? Can I fix the problem?

Thanks, {redoak}
 

A:"Tray" icon continually indicates there isn no Internet connection

You can try using msconfig and going to the startup tab to stop that application from starting up.
