Home wireless network 1 of 3 computers will not connect

Q: Home wireless network 1 of 3 computers will not connect

Hi I have set up a wireless network in my home using s d-link N+ 300 DIR-655 and the desktop that is directly connected to the modem and router can connect to the internet and my laptop can access the wireless network and get online but I have another desktop that cannot connect to the wireless network. It can see it but when i try and connect i get the message that it was unable to connect or sometimes that i was able to connect but have limited connectivity. Im not really computer savvy but i follow directions well so any help would be greatly appreciated. This has been driving me crazy and i have done everything i know how to correct it and I am sure that i have the correct WPA password in there so that is not the problem.

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.)

I have a belkin home network and all the computers in my house can connect except mine, so it isn't a network issue. When I log onto my laptop, it says no networks are available so I can't even attempt to connect. Can someone please help me and tell me what to do? Thanks.

Do you have the correct wireless drivers for your laptop?

I did not set up my pc's to share over my home wireless network, but suddenly today I see that all drives and the printer are available between each computer. I had tried to set up the computers to share months ago, but never got it to work and gave up.

The desktop is old, running WinME, one laptop is running WinXPpro, the other laptop is running Vista. They are all connected to a Westell router/dsl modem for internet through Verizon.

So, I turn the desktop off daily. Today I go to turn it off and it says the WinXP laptop is connected and do I really want to shut down. I go to windows explorer on both machines and sure enough I have access to the other drives on each computer. I start the Vista machine and see the same.

Am I compromised?
 

A:MY home computers suddenly sharing over home wireless network

If you didn't make the change to share all drives, then somebody did. I would assume the worst. Time to reformat and reinstall.

Windows ME is past end of life, and no security updates are provided by MS. I wouldn't run it anymore. Maybe you'd want to try out some linux distros, some are quite good on old hardware. See this review:
http://www.linux.com/feature/52134

It seems you don't have a separate router, I would advise you to get one. I have a modem/router too but I also have a separate hardware firewall/router. The modem/router does NAT but I constantly see connections/attacks making it past the modem/router to my firewall. Having a separate router is a good thing.

Since you are using wireless, did you enable the encryption? If you have WPA or WPA2 use them and setup a long and complicated passphrase. Use WEP if you have no other choice cause WEP can be broken into real quick. You must enable encryption because with wireless, all your machines are sitting ducks when you have close range attackers, whereas with wired, at least you still have a perimeter which you can fortify with a firewall. Also it is especially important to have software firewalls on Each PC when using wireless.

Hey!

So I bought a D-Link DIR-615.

All other computers work fine on the router.

Wireless doesn't work on my laptop - if I plug it in it works.
I can see and connect to the wireless account - however, once connected to the Internet, Internet doesn't actually work??

All other computers / wireless devices work on this network, and my laptop works on any other wireless network.

I've checked firewall settings, that isn't the problem ...
The fact that the laptop works on other networks leads me to think it isn't a program stopping it from working properly, or it would act up on all networks, right?

Can't figure out why

I attached an ipconfig

I'm running on Win7

I also attached a picture of my network hardware
(I think my wireless card is the Intel N - 1030)
Thank you!!!

At our office we have atleast 10 computers and they are all connected to a wireless Network using D-Link wireless adapters. All the computers are able to connect to the internet and browsing the net is not a problem, but the problem is in accessing some of the computers on the network, I keep getting thse pop up error messages saying " \\comp1 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions". I am the Technical guy in the company overseeing tthe network. Please Help am stranded and my job is on the line.!
 

A:I can connect to the wireless network in my office but i cant access some computers:

Sounds like you don't have permissions. Is this a domain or a workgroup network? Sounds like a workgroup.
Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:

COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Server
TCP/IP Netbios helper
Wireless Zero Configuration (XP wireless configurations)
WLAN AutoConfig (Vista wireless configurations)
Workstation

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.

If a service is not running, open it's properties and check the dependencies. Check each of the dependencies and see which one is preventing the service from running. Checking the event log is also a good idea here, there may be clues to what is failing.
All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Places (Network and Sharing Center in Vista), make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login. NOTE: Vista's default is to require a password on the account to enable file/print sharing.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing. You can open a command prompt as described above and type the following command: nbtstat -n. This will display the status of NetBIOS or indicate it's not configured.

When I turned off WEP protein through my old Dell, the new one can be connected. I then re-enact the protection through the new one using the same key. Now it can be connected under the encryption but the old one is left out. Any suggestions? Thanks.

How far away from your computers is the router? Also; have you tried to power cycle the modem and router? If not; i would try that. Unplug both the modem and router; wait about a minute; then plug in the modem first; let that boot; then plug the router back in and let that boot. Try doing that and see if it helps the situation.

i am unable to connect to my home wireless network although i can see it and the strength seems to be high. i have tried making the network unsecured but still cannot connect.

other computers in the house (one running windows xp the other a mac) seem to connect with no problems what so ever.

this has happened since i bought a new router ( a linksys wrt54gx)

i am running it in mixed mode as my wireless card is type b while others in the house are type g.

i am running vista and my wireless card is: AM1772 wireless lan

when i tryed typing ipconfig /all run flashes up very fast and writing scrolls down then closes before i can even attempt to read it.

any help would be great
thanks

You are probably doing that in the Run command box. Instead type cmd first then the IPCONFIG command, or simply go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

Not too sure if the router can handle both .b and .g simultaneously. Other than that, I would suggest checking the SSID and key and make sure that the info on your machine matches the router's configuration. Also if you are using permit/deny access, make sure your notebook's MAC address is allowed to connect.

I have a work supplied laptop. Used to be able to connect to my home wireless network - this stopped working last week. It can connect to other wireless networks, both at the office and other public places, but can't connect to my home network.

I've tried:
Manually creating the wireless network
Removing the profile from regedit
Removing the profile from ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvcs\Profiles

It sees the network and attempts to connect, but never successfully connect. I have other laptops at home that are working just fine. The network is setup with WEP security, and I've entered/reentered the password several times.

Note, when I started this, the home network did not appear under the Manage Wireless Networks list in the Network and Sharing
Center.

I'm at a loss on what to try next....
 

A:Can't connect to home wireless network

Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful then re-enable encryption and try to reconnect.

If WEP doesn't work try WPA(2)-PSK. Vista and newer versions of Windows sometimes struggle with WEP, especially with older routers. A firmware update, if one is available, may help.

Hi,

Yesterday my computer disconnected from the Internet and wouldn't reconnect. It said that something was unplugged. I have a home wireless network with several computers and the others still work fine, so I assumed it was a problem with the PCI Adapter (Edimax IEEE 802.11g Turbo Mode). I bought a new one (Tenda TWL541C(P)), but that doesn't work either. It installed OK and I set up the wireless network without any problems, but it just says "Card Unplugged" and Site Survey is greyed out, so I can't get onto the network.

Please can someone tell me what I need to do to get back online?

Thanks,

I have tried turning of router etc for 10 seconds and plugging it back in but nothing. i have checked my wireless adapter card for drivers and it says i have latest drivers.

Everything else in the house, ie phones, playstation etc connects to the network fine, and when i hard wire my laptop to the router again it works fine (am using laptop now to type this)

So i am at a loss....

Anyone any ideas?

Thanks all

Chris

A:Cannot connect to wireless home network any more with laptop

I personally would first check drivers for updates and make sure they're all working correctly.

You could also completely remove the wireless configuration that you have for the access point. Then re-add it.

If that doesn't fix the problem I would try a system restore if it was available.

My laptop will not connect to my wireless network, it only gives me an "Limited or no Connectivity" message. My wireless network does appear on the windows "Wireless Networks" screen, but when I try and connect to it it gives me that message. I have already entered the network key from the bottom of the router. Me router is an e-wire home portal 1000HW. I know that I am not doing something right from my , but since I am no pro with this stuff I cannot figure what it might me. If you all can give me any step by step instructions as to set up the network I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

I am running windows xp in both my desktop and laptop. I am able to connect to other various wi-fi networks (ie. barnes & noble).
 

A:Solved: Cannot connect to home wireless network

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.
Make/model of the broadband modem.
Make/model of the router (if any).
Connection type, wired, wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.)
Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP2, Vista, etc.

I suggest disabling encryption on your router to see if you can connect, then enable encryption as a separate step. Also, use only the HEX key option for WEP, don't use the passcode option. If possible, use WPA encryption.

Hello,

I have Verizon FIOS modem/router. Have a PC connected to it via hardline, works fine, the laptop cannot connect wireless to it. The Laptop was able to connect to other wireless networks. When I try to connect to home, it says "limited or no connectivity". When I connected to a router port with cable, but it worked fine when I disconnected. So it seems to me that it is having trouble with acquiring ip. When I chose "repair", it tried renewing ip and got 169 ip address instead of the usual 192.168.1.x. and could not connect. I tried giving it a static ip, but it did not work. Also, I tried changing the channel once, did not work. And I disable the XP firewall. I am wondering if perhaps changing the ip addresses on the router itself may fix the issue (perhaps in the 192.168.10.x range), perhaps with multiple open networks in the area, there is some kind of mixup. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have tried with another laptop sitting outside the house, and it went online and acquired ip correctly.

Thanks,

Mine did the same thing this afternoon, I typed in the WPA/WEP key again and it worked.
I did try the one I created a while back but didn't work, then I used the one that was written on my modem/router and worked 100%.

Hope it helps.

Hi,

My laptop with Windows 7 64-bit is not being able to connect to the home wireless network. But other devises like iPad and iPhone and Mac laptop can connect to the same wireless network. However I can connect to the network if I connect my laptop directly to the wireless router using a network cable.

I have tried upgrading the firmware in my wireless router but no luck. THis laptop had no problem before connecting to the same wireless network. But since I came back from the back home couple of days back I am seeing this problem. But my laptop can still connect to my my-fi devise wireless network.

I have tried running the netsock commands listed in a similar thread in this forum but no luck.

netsh winsock reset catalog

netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

I ran all three above and rebooted the laptop but lo luck.

Please help!

Hello,
We have two laptops at home which connect to the same wireless network. I just took one of them on a roadtrip and when I got back, I could no longer connect to the wireless network - I can't even "see" the connection. It keeps saying "no wireless networks were found in range." (obviously I am posting on the other laptop!)

I suspect that my frequent connecting to other wireless networks while on the road may have squirreled up the wireless settings but I have no idea how to fix it!

Hello and thanks in advance for your help. I have an Acer Inspire laptop running Windows XP. A few months ago it suddenly stopped connecting to my home wireless network, while all of the other computers in the house connect to the network without a problem. The network still shows up in the list of available networks; when I click on it to connect, it looks like it's trying to connect but it never actually does. My dad thinks that using my laptop at an airport wifi hotspot may have something to do with the issue (the problem started right after I returned from a business trip...).

Any suggestions?

switched off ipv6

When i connect through wireless to work, i am also limited to only being able to see only vista and no xp machines, printers or servers.
does anyone know what is going on? 

A:cannot connect to workgroup computers using windows 7 home

Hi,
You may kindly refer to the following steps:
1. Update your network adapter’s driver to latest version.
2. Change your network adapter’s MAC address to have a try.
3. Check whether the wired cable is too long.
4. Uninstall the adapter, then try to reinstall it.

Hi all,

I have a strange problem.
All three of my computers at home (all on windows 7 ultimate 64bit) are connecting to the same router with same SSID, but they end up having duplicate names such as NetworkName 1, NetworkName 2, NetworkName 3. This is preventing me from having them share via homegroup.
I made sure the computer names are all different and all connect to same workgroup name.
Is this a router setting problem? i'm using a cisco-linksys wrt-160n flashed with DD-WRT. i was checking the settings and ran across a new term, vlan. could it be they are all connected to separate virtual networks? i tried to disable vlan, however, that just disconnected all the computers to the internet.

Please help me setup my home network!

Dary

A:Computers at home connect to same router but with different names?

You will only get a V-Lan if you setup a Vlan and you have to do it manually because you have to manually put in IP's... it is not turned on by Default using the DDWRT.

Can you take a screen shot of what you are talking about when you say NetworkName 1.. where is that showing up?

A:Wired and wireless computers won't connect to each other

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Do you have Windows 7 on both computers?

If not, you need to use a workgroup rather than a homegroup.

I am trying to connect two computers to each other that both use windows 7. I'm wondering about when it asks me for a username and password, and because there is no password, we put ion the username and left password blank. Then it brought us to another window that asked for a username and password, and we could not go any further. How do I get them connected? and is it safe to set the password protected file sharing to 'off' or do I run the risk of someone hacking into my network? Thank you.

But your Subject says you want to connect to a network.

If wanting to connect the 2 computers only to each other you could try an Ethernet Cross-over cable or maybe a LapLink USB cable.

I have a DSL connection. The two will be near each other in the same room. From what I've been able to learn so far, I'll need a hub to connect them, but other than that I'm in the dark as to what I'll need. Advice would be appreciated.

A:Cannot get two computers to see each other on home network

Did something you know of actually change a week ago, when your home network's configuration apparently changed? Did you replace any hardware? Visits from cable company? Anything?

Can you please do IPCONFIG in a command-prompt on both machines. Please state what each machine shows in its "local area connection" info. I'm looking for IP address details on its IPv4 address, default gateway, DNS router.

Also, you've provided no info in your specs, and you have two machines to describe. So please provide specifics for each machine:

wired vs wireless connection from PC to router? Please list all devices involved, and if wired what they connect from/to.

brand/model of router? brand/model of your powerline adapters. Do you have an actual true "switch" (which is actually a device type), or only a primary router/modem, or what else is involved in your home network. Can you verbally describe your assumed connection path from each computer to the primary router (and then to the modem, unless you have an all-in-one box from your ISP that is both modem as well as router).

are both machines in the same "workgroup"? Right-click on COMPUTER, select Properties, and look down in the "computer name, domain, and workgroup settings" section. What is the "workgroup"?

what are the "attached devices" (presumably and hopefully showing both of your PCs) shown in your router's GUI? Screenshot from a browser window where you've connected to the router (e.g. 192.168.1.1, or whatever the "default gateway" address as shown by IPCONFIG).

A printer USB-connected and hosted by one machine on the network can be shared with other PC's on the network as long as it is set as "shared" in Printer Properties -> Sharing tab, from Start -> Devices and Printers. If that part looks good from the hosting machine, then it's obviously an issue with the two computers not being able to see each other on the network.

We'll get to the bottom of it, but the above info is needed first to get a clear picture of your home setup.

Hi guys. c:

Alright, so I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with two computers connected to it via ethernet. One is running Windows Vista, the other Windows XP. I have a printer connected to the Vista box and I can print with it from the XP as well as share files between the two.

I also have a laptop (running XP) that connects to the router wirelessly. It is in the same workgroup (WORKGROUP) as both the XP and Vista. The Vista sees it when I look for other computers on my network, but I can't connect to it.

The laptop doesn't recognize any other computers on the network. How can I get it to do that, so I can print and share files and stuff? Or is the router just evil... Er, secure enough that it won't let me?

I managed to get folder sharing between a 7 and xp computer via lan cable to
work.
It took houers, and when it worked I didn't know why.

After reinstalling xp, again I can't make the lan cable connection between
the xp and 7 computer work.

The lan has the same name on both computers, and ip on both computer are config'ed.
Icons on both computers say, that the lan connection is running.
However, if I ping the windows 7 computer from the xp computer, it
works. If I ping the xp computer from the xp computer, it works.
If I ping the xp computer from the 7 computer, it doesn't work. If I ping
the 7 computer from the 7 computer, it doesn't work.

And on the 7 computer there is an yellow triangle on the network icon.
But it was also there before reinstallation, and the lan connection worked
anyway.

How do I get the lan cable connection to work?
Thanks.

Did you try the diagnose connection option in Win7's Control Panel --> Network and Internet --> Network Connections app?? Right click on it...

You also said early on...

After we moved to another house, i have an internetconnection through a speedport W 501 V over ADSL.
My main computer is connected with an excellent connection,
The other 3 computers can see the speedport, but cannot make a connection. The IP adress can not be refreshed. You cab see that the strength of the network is strong for these connections.
Because the signal was to weak for the other computers i have bought a Linksys wireless G-range expander.

He unplugged the network plug and I plugged it into my laptop couldn't get it to work. So I tried to set it up so that my computer would be the one it would connect to using Network Wizard and at the end of that it said it failed. Then we tried it on my friend's laptop again and no use. The internet works on his desktop but now whenever we try to connect through a laptop it comes up saying, Limited or no Connectivity.

A:How to set up home network to access everything on computers

Hello to a Buckeye Gal,

Chev65 is probably one of our most knowledgable members on networking.

I don't use "homegroups" because I have differenet versions of Windows running on my networks. (98, XP, Vista, Win7). I always use business type networks. You have to make sure you get the sharing right on each HD & folders that you want shared on the network.

Hello All,

AS always thank you all for your time in reading this.

So here's my problem...

I have a home computer;

Windows XP Pro
Direct connection to high speed cable

I also have a laptop;

Windows XP Pro
Connects to the internet via a Belkin wireless router (that's connected to my home computer)

I'm trying to connect these two computers together so I can work on various files and folders on my laptop in the wee hours of the morning, instead of falling asleep at my computer desk at night.

I've tried the Windows "setup a wireless home or small business" application with little success. Unless I've done something wrong, I can't connect these two computers.

I would greatly appreciate any help anyone has to offer.

Thanks again for your time.
 

A:Help me setup a HOME network between 2 computers PLEASE!

Hi 5DoubleO,

Try setting up the home network on the main computer. CONTROL PANEL > NETWORK SETUP WIZARD. Give it a network name, the most common name is "WORKGROUP". After you complete creating the network, it will probably ask you to restart.

Then, go on your secondary PC (most likely your laptop) and go to CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM > COMPUTER NAME TAB > CHANGE... > Then enter the network name you created on your main computer. It will probably ask you to restart.

Then you should be able to access both computers shared documents.

Hi all I want to use a new LinkSys Cable DSL Router model befsr but some things are not working I have an older Netgear RP router and with that I can easily see all computers in my home and print etc In other words everything is configured and working at least with the old router The internet works fine on but seen on on old Computers router network on can not new one. home be the new router but I can t see computers in the home network It also can t find a newly added printer that I d like to share If I hook up the old router again then everything works again The printer is also found Once it s seen and shared I can then switch to the new router and print to it from another computer However I d like the new router Computers on home network can be seen on old router but not on new one. to be able to find that printer without relying on the old router every time If I re-install windows on a computer on the network then the printer of course goes away It then starts all over again I need the old router each and every time to find a printer for sharing Also the main problem of course is that I also can t see any computers in the home network with this new router I figure there must be some way to make the new router act Computers on home network can be seen on old router but not on new one. like the old one since the old one is so simplistic I m hoping I m missing something simple in the LinkSys s setup The systems all use Windows XP I d list all computer specs for all computers but this seems to be a problem with the new router and nothing in particular with the Computers on home network can be seen on old router but not on new one. computers To give you an idea one is a ghz Intel on an Asus motherboard with GB ram The other systems are ghz and on similar LAN connections are built into the motherboard The modem is an Arris cable modem All computers plug into the router which is then connected to the modem But again the router is causing the problem that prevents computers from seeing each other At least I think so since I can always hook up the old one and have it works Can anyone see something I ve overlooked Thanks Update I was able to somehow get the home network to be visible with the new router However I still can t get a new printer to be recognized with network sharing unless I hook up the old router nbsp

A:Computers on home network can be seen on old router but not on new one.

A bit more info would be helpful. Are the pc's static or dynamic ips? Can you ping anything? Have you been able to talk to your new router? Does it have the dhcp enabled/disabled? With a bit of info you might be able to duplicate most of the settings from the old to the new router if you can talk to them.

We have had 5 computers on our network (p2p) and I'm using two separate workstations as servers for two different database programs. We just added two computers to the network and I'm not allowed to use more than 5 computers at a time to access the one server (with a mapped drive). I can reboot the server and the first 5 computer (counting the server) can access the mapped server. All computer can access each other (excepted for the mapped one). I'm thinking that there maybe sometype of limitation to the number of computer xp home allows on the network.

Any thoughts on how to change this? Thanks!

Really appreciate your computer knowledge. Here?s the problem.

I created a HOMEGROUP on computers A with PRINTER hooked up.. No problem with A, B, C printing.

Now I hooked up PRINTER to computers B. Computers A, B, C do not print (unless I hook up to A).

IMHO if all computers are on the same home network, they should be able to share the same functions.
What should I do to hook up the printer to B and A, B, C will print?

I thank you.

A:Print for all computers on the same home network

If the printer is capable of using Ethernet or Wifi, you do not need it connected to a computer to print, since the printer contains an internal print server. Majority of the times, it is either the Windows Firewall is turned on, or a third party Internet Security software, that is causing this issue. Turn off the firewall, things go back to normal.

As for homegroup, do not use it. Disable it and use standard Networking. It also helps to know the manufacturer & model of the router, OS versions and printer manufacturer & model number.

Hey everyone,

Does anyone happen to know how to successfully create a network in Windows XP Pro for a wireless laptop and for an Ethernet-hooked-up (non-wireless) computer. I'm trying to printer and file share the two together BUT I've exhausted myself in trying to make it happen. Has anyone successfully done this? Am I missing something? Perhaps hardware?

I would truly appreciate any help or advice.

Thanks all!

The problem is in the topic, I can see other computer in my network, yet cannot connect to any of them. Every computer has the password protected sharing off and discovery on, most are using Vista, one is using XP. At first the computers just didn't show up, but after a while they will appear in the network list but when trying to connect it will try for a while, then give you an error.

Since no one else has replied yet.......

I`m not too good at networking, but this occurs to me.
Check the firewall. Turn it off first and see if that helps

It probably was set up before with a ?trusted network" based on an address from the old router.

I have had a netgear router for some time now (WNR2000) for three home computers, all Windows Vista+ and recently had to buy a new wireless adapter for one of them (WNA3100). Previously, all computers were connected to a security-enabled network called 'Johnson'.

I installed the new adapter via the wizard and it ended up creating a new network entitled 'NTGR_zhOXSTT8ZSXtTUsaRd5lXfrq-WPS'. Johnson has now disappeared from the list and no other computer is able to connect to this new network. I tried changing from WPA2 to WEP and changing the password in hopes that the other computers will be able to login but it didn't work.

Help!!
