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'm using a dell inspiron 8600, sp3. i've never had problems accessing the internet until a few weeks ago when i moved. i was slated to join in on my roommmates network, but for some reason I cannot connect. Or more precisely, I connect for about 2 seconds, and I'm immediately bumped off. My roommates tried to fix it, but in vain. the signal is coming in strong on my computer, so I'm not sure what the issue is. any help is definitely welcomed.

My son's laptop suddenly stopped being able to connect to the internet via wireless. I can see it okay but just unable to connect. I've checked the drivers and they are up to date. It shows on my network when wired and I've checked with the virus software and I can see no reason for it to be blocked.

Can you help?

Hi I have broadband connection and was connecting to the internet using the wireless network. All of a sudden I am unable to connect to it. On the control panel "Manage wireless network" I can view my network but not in the network sharing centre.
 

A:Unable to connect to wireless network

Do you have other devices that can connect to your wireless ??

try this
------------------------------------------------------------------------
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
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 install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum 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

if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information.

post which SSID name is yours, its located in the list, under network "Adapter Name" (1st column)
Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

Hey everyone,

I've suddenly been unable to connect to my wireless network and this is the sequence of events leading to the problem. (Currently using a friend's computer). My chrome browser got hijacked by the search conduit virus. So, I cleaned it with AdW cleaner. My internet connection was ok then. After that, I ran ccleaner and cleared the registry.
Now, I find that I have trouble even connecting to my wireless - it says limited connectivity or no connectivity. The other comp's in my house can connect to the internet fine. I've checked and resetted my network adapter. It is working, but still can't connect. I restored all my registry but still it doesn't solve the problem.What have I done wrong?

I hope someone can give me a hand with this problem. It would be very much appreciated.

Regards,
Leon

Hi, i recently bought a usb wireless wifi connector & successfully installed the drivers. The problem is that whenever I click on a network to connect an error pops up saying 'Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range.Please refresh the list of available networks, and try again.'
Plz help me to solve this problem.
Currently i am running Windows xp sp 2 on my desktop.

Why not SP3? Some networking devices will not work properly w/o SP3.

What firewall or security suite is, or ever was, on the system?

I bought a computer yesterday and am currently unable to connect to my wireless network. The network is a shared wireless network, WEP network key and i'm using a Netcomm Np 7040 usb lan adapter. When I open wireless connections the wireless network is visible and when I try to connect it gives me the error message "windows is unable to connect to the selected wireless network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." I have already googled the problem and one bit of advise was to add the network in the advanced settings and include the network key in that. I did that and it is still coming up with the message. The usb adapter works on all the other computers when connecting to the network so I doubt its that. Any ideas?

I have a Dell Demension L733r with a Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB Adaptor. When I start the computer, it connects to the wireless network immediately. As I go through the day, all of a sudden I start getting "Unable to Connect to Wireless Network". I click on the popup and then click on repair. It goes through it's procedures and eventually reconnects the network. Sometimes it says "Connection Very Good" other times "Low" or even "Very Low". Several minutes later, it will do the same thing again and I go through the same procedure again. This might happen several more times then it will be okay. There are days where it never happens at all and then there are days where it happens every 10 minutes or so. It also seems to happen more at night for some reason. How can I eliminate this problem?
 

A:Unable to Connect to Wireless Network

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 ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.
Type the following command:

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

can you post an xirrus and ipconfig /all

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

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

Hi and welcome

Im assuming you are using Homegroup for networking.

Lets take a look at device manager by typing device manager in search. go to the wif tab and look to see if your card listed listed. Is it? does it have a yellow triangle on it?

Are there any "unknown" devices with yellow on them?

Let us know

I have an Acer IconiaTab W500 with Windows 8 developer preview installed on it and I cannot get it to connect to my Cisco 1142 APs. I have a Guest network that is for b/g speeds only and requires [WPA2][Auth(PSK)]. I type the password in and Windows comes back and says something is wrong with the adapter or the access point.

I have taken the tablet over to StarBucks and was able to connect to their wireless network easily.

Of course Acer is no help. Since it came with Windows 7, that is the only support they can offer.

I have an Atheros AR9002WB-1NG wireless adapter. I have tried to install the Win7 drivers and it will not allow the installation to run. I can see all the wireless SSID around me, including my Guest network.

I have disabled the MS Kernal Debug Netwrok Adapter. I left the MS Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter enabled.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

A:Unable to connect to wireless network

Switch off your router, leave it for 10mins or something, try connecting again. First try without the Athros adapter.
EDIT: You could also try a different DNS server as well.

Good day!So, this laptop always connected to a LAN cable, and we've rarely brought it away. We're rarely connected to the internet via wireless router, since I don't bring it much. In instances like that 2 years ago, we can connect it seamlessly. But lately, I've been bringing it to school, and it cannot connect by wifi to any router or hotspot.I tried the suggestions from HP Support, like the modifications done in device manager, installing an updated driver for the wireless adapter, restoring the BIOS to its default setup, and others. Still, I can't connect to the wireless networks.Any suggestions?PS: The wireless network adapter in this laptop is a 'Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter

have you installed any software with fake networking such as virtual box recently? also, have you fiddled with the wireless network adapter settings? I did so and it messed up all connections :/
also, may sound like a dumb quetion, but have you accidentally flicked a wireless switch or pressed a button on the laptop that turns it off?

Hello all,

I have recently formatted my laptop because it didn't work properly anymore.
Now that it's working again, I find myself unable to connect to my wireless network.
I believe I should only have to enter my SSID code and network key while trying to access my connection.
This doesn't work.
When I try to repair the connection it hangs at connecting to wireless network.
Anybody have an idea what's wrong?

Thanks in advance
 

A:Unable to connect to wireless network

Did you install the wireless adapter drivers?
Look in device manager to see if there are any Yellow Marks indicating missing drivers.
You should be able to get your drivers from the maker of the laptop.

Thanx in advance to any help cause I'm sorta baffled.

Ok, I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 running WinXP that I just recently reformatted. I have a Linksys Wireless-G Notebook adapter (WPC54G ver.3) that I installed. XP picks it up and sees my wireless network(along with my neighbors) but I can't connect. I put in the correct key and it still doesn't connect.

How I got to where I am now:

The guy who own's this laptop had spilled on it. I cleaned it out thoroughly and it was working fine for him for a few months. Then the screen started flickering and typing anything wasn't working right.

Any ideas?

I am also trying to create a "Recovery CD" from the HP built in CD creator. However, the Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-851S ATA Device (in Device Manager) has an exclamation mark right next to it.. meaning it will not work!

I've spent a lot of time looking for the answer here, I'm really hoping someone here can help. After a recent trip, I came home and was unable to wirelessly connect to my secure home network.

I can connect to it secure and wired as well as unsecured and wireless, but not secured and wireless. I have done malware scans and checked for driver updates for both my netowrking card and the Linksys WRT54G router firmware...both are good. All of the other systems in the house can wirelessly connect to it while secured, so I've narrowed it down to clearly being a problem with my computer. Any ideas? I am using Vista Home Premium 64 bit on an ASUS G50VT.

Please help!

I'm on a Dell Inspiron 530 using an Intel 82562V-2 wireless adapter.

Ever since my PC fell asleep while I was updating to iOS 5.0 on my iPhone, I havent had wireless.

It's not acknowledging my network.
I think it's a "switch"... but have no clue where that would be.

Any thoughts/ideas on a fix?
I'm at a complete loss for ideas.

A:Unable to connect to wireless network or ethernet

When someone asks for "help"....but then decides to tailor that request with ideas that impede attempts to determine/resolve "the problem"...I think it's time to punt and give the system back to them.If both the wireless and wired connections are dysfunctional, with no clues...I think it's logical to suspect hardware, especially so in terms of other problems revealed.Some users don't seem to realize...that those systems are warranteed for only a year...because they are not made with the intent of producing a system that will last the lifetime of the user.A clean install is about the only way that I know to truly get a fix on suspected hardware problems that don't involve RAM or hard drive. Especially so with a laptop, if one does not repair/troubleshoot system problems for a living (I don't).I would take a look in Event Viewer, just to ensure that there is nothing there that might help diagnose the situation.How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/ Louis

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,
MarlonClick to expand...

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.

"... The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks and try again."
 
I was given an old pc (Dell Optiplex 320) which had been used where I work. I did not reformat, but reinstalled XP Pro from the supplied Dell reinstallation disc. I have installed drivers for the graphics card and for the wireless adapter. I am unable to connect wirelessly at home or at work. I do have the network key for the workplace router, but can't get to the point where I need to enter it. I tried to connect to my smartphone's wifi hotspot, to no avail. I'm sure this is a simple fix, however my skills are spotty at best.

A:"Windows is unable to connect to the wireless network."

If these are the specs for the computer you have :-  http://www.northwoodcomputer.com/Flyers/opti_320techspecs.pdf
 
Then, as built by Dell, it doesn't contain a wireless card !  It is of course always possible that one was fitted later. If you are certain you (1) have a wireless card, (2) have identified it correctly, and (3) have managed to find and install the drivers for it, the possibility remains that the card may be faulty. Experience shows that wireless cards can fail, and in some very non-obvious ways !
 
It might be worth your while trying a USB wi-fi dongle if only to check that the problem is or is not with your card. I have used one in my own computer since the day we went wireless - see picture - and is mounted in a magnetic mounted clip as far forward on the casing as it will go with a short extension cable to the back panel.
 
http://imageshack.com/a/img577/9316/v3k4.jpg
 
If you cannot borrow one, they are not expensive. That is why I bought one in the first place, it was cheaper than an internal card. But it will tell you if a wi-fi signal is reaching your computer and whether or not you can connect. If you can connect with a dongle, then your wireless card is probably deceased.

A:Solved: Unable to connect to any wireless network

there is an issue with vista and that adapter - see below

Just try with the internal adapter and the suggestions below - if they don't work - we can come back to the usb adapter and diagnose further

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

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

--- 4) 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
AR5007
Vista 32 / 64 Bit
Direct link Drivers for Atheros AR5007 and Windows Vista 32 / 64 bit
You only need to click on the green 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
AR5007EG
Vista 32 / 64 Bit
Direct link Drivers for Atheros AR5007EG and Windows Vista 32 / 64 bit
You only need to click on the green 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
Drivers for the other windows operating system
http://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-drivers.php
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.

To install the driver you will need to do the following

Extract the downloaded zip file into a folder on the PC
then

For Vista;
> Start Globe
> Control Panel
> System and maintenance
> Scroll down to Device manager
> network adaptors, click on the + >
> Right click on the AR5007(EG) Adapter
> click on Update Driver Software...
> click on Browse my computer for driver software
> click on the Button Browse...
> Locate the folder you extracted the downloaded zip file to
> Next
Click OK and Windows will install the driver for you.

A:Laptop unable to connect to wireless network

I assume you've already tried rebooting the laptop. Next step would be to shut down all computers; unplug the router; plug in the router; boot computers. If still a problem please show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I'm having some trouble connecting my desktop to my wireless router. Whenever I try to connect to my own network the desktop just says connecting for a while then does nothing.

The desktop is using a Belkin F5D7000 v1 wireless adapter and is running Windows XP SP3.

The router is a Linksys WRT54G2.

Both have the most recent firmware/driver updates, though the latest driver for the wireless adapter is about 6 years old.

I have tried disabling all the network security options and still cannot connect.

I've also been able to successfully connect to my network with a laptop, as well as connect to nearby wireless networks with the desktop.

If anyone has any suggestions or advice please let me know.

Hi all,
i have some problem with my wireless connectivity,
When i try to connect to a wireless network, it keep saying "Unable to Connect to X" (let's assume the network name is X)

When using network troubleshooter,
it recommend me to turn off the router, keep it for 10 secs, and turn it back on,
i've done so, but the problem still there
and then the troubleshooter say there're some problem on the access point or the network adapter (Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN)

but it seems no problem with other networks and all laptops except this S57B works fine..

and the strangest of all is: somtimes it works fine, and sometimes disconnected + unable to connect.

What possibly causing the problem?

Additional Info:
BenQ Joybook S57B
OS: Win 7 Ultimate x86 (Upgrade ver. from Vista Home)
Network Security Type is WEP

Thx in advance

A:Win 7 unable to connect to wireless network(router)

I have had trouble adding a separate cisco switch and a wireless router onto the comcast cable router. I have the phone and internet. After running a PING test I saw the speed was significantly slowed down by 1/4 due to the netgear wireless router. So I unplugged that and bought a non-wireless cisco router that did not slow the speed down. Now I need a wireless router as my wife bought a Ipodtouch. Don't waist your money on one of these, get the real ipod phone! Just a note! These are worthless if you can't get online! Only good for photo's, Music, and videos downloaded onto it. Back to the wireless network problem. The main router needs to have multiple ports or the DNS will not work. I am guessing you are running more then 1 router inline.

I have tried to follow those solved posts.  However I can't make any progress.
Eventually I have to unhide the network to connect it.
Having been able to connect to the hidden wireless network, I then hide the network again.  However the computer won't automatically connect to the hidden network again after the computer restarts until I unhide the network.  In this scenario, it
seems to perform much worse than Windows XP.

If you do not have the program, HijackThis in your machine, you would have to download it using another computer. Save it onto a floppy/cd & transfer it to the infected machine.

Obtain the log & post it here.

A:Solved: Unable to connect to wireless network

Usually the guys like to have make and model of the computer, copies of the ipconfig /all and screenshots of the expanded Device Manager.

Hopefully the problems are just corrupted or wrong drivers.
First thing would be to go to HP support and see if you can download the drivers for the hardware that shows the yellow ?. From your list, you probably need to do at least Chipset, Wireless, Video and Audio drivers

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

3 ways to find the drivers.
Enter the product name/number and search
Download and install the HP ID tool
Search by product catagory, type, name

Also, updating to XP SP3 would make things work better,
SP2 doesn't work with WPA2 unless it has patch KB 893357 installed.

I have lost the ability to connect to the internet with my desktop (Dell XPS 420). I have a Netgear WNDA USB adapter but it cannot find any networks. It is not the router because I have a laptop, iphone and tablet that can all connect. At first I could see the network but it was "bumped" by this Virtual Network and then it would not be able to connect. I found online an article describing the same problem so I followed their recommendations. I removed the Netgear software and reinstalled it from the CD but now it will not even bring up the control module to connect/find the networks. What's even stranger is that the computer will not connect with an ethernet cable either. Help!

Try using System Restore to roll back Windows to a point in time when everything when your computer was functioning correctly. It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

unable to connect to preferred wireless network - windows xp

When I boot my laptop (Toshiba Salellite C600) ,It connects to the wireless connection automatically using the security key,,but after few minutes it disconnects displays an error (unable to connect to preferred wireless network) .and it doesn't even detect the wireless network after that.
But if I restart the laptop some times i get the wireless connection back / in some cases i use the following command (>netsh winsock reset catalog) in the command prompt and restart.

I also updated my XP with the service pack 3 and uninstalled the wireless network card and re-installed.,but it didnt help.
.

This happened after I expired my free version of Avast virus guard.I use AVG as my virus guard

But I still get this error on and on...please help

nuwanju...I'm not an expert on network cards, but, when the internet connection shuts down, does the network card still show up in Device Manager? Is there a yellow question mark or a red x there?

Maybe something is wrong with the motherboard connection to the network card. I was thinking maybe it could be overheating? Just an idea...

Okay, here's an odd one.

Machine 1: Desktop, Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP2, firewall disabled, no a/v, fresh install
Machine 2: Notebook, Vista Home Basic 32-bit SP2, firewall disabled, no a/v, fresh install

fresh install = from OEM disc, not restore disc.

Machine 1 has files on it I want to share with machine 2, I can see my files on machine 1 from three XP machines, but not Machine 2, here's where it gets freaky, I plug Machine 2 into the network and disable the wifi, I can see the files. I go back on the wifi and I cannot ping machine 1 from machine 2, I cannot ping machine 2 from machine 1, I can ping machine 1 & 2 from three other XP-based machines regardless of being on wifi or not.

I'm stumped, here's the kicker, it's happening on another similar setup (vista 64bit sharing files and xp 32 bit & vista 32bit unable to connect, all over wifi, works with ethernet)

am I missing something here?

A:unable to connect to vista share over wireless network

I feel stupid now... I figured it out, somewhat, I have a workaround.

I have two netgear WPN824v2's (and another one at that other location), for some reason that's giving me a fit, out of curiosity I reconnected to a 3rd access point, which is a cheap gigabyte brand router that I set up for my mom's notebook and wii, all three use WPA encryption so I doubt its that, and all netgear routers have the latest firmware. Anyway I can connect to the files and print to the 64-bit machine with my 32-bit machine. I'm going to pick up another router and replace one of my WPN824s and see if that takes care of it although I'm going to play with the settings on my 824's to see if there's something I can do to fix it.

Also I was mistaken earlier, the XP notebook was connected to the Gigabyte wireless, not my netgear's, I just connected to the netgear AP's and its getting packet-blocked too.

Hiya everyone,

I can on here a few days ago having problems with my wireless, and a very helpful forum member solved my issue very quicky.

I now have another problem, my wireless is disconnected again. I am able to see it in the 'network' list, but when I try to connect it says 'acquiring network address' constantly and doesn't connect (apart from yesterday when it connected for about 3 minutes, then lost it again)

Any advice would be great, I'm on windows XP, and the laptop is a Toshiba Portege M300

Thank you everyone.

Unable to connect to network with either a wireless or hardwire connection.

I do not use this computer very often. It is the one used by my kids to play "Club Penguin", etc.

I was away at scout camp with my oldest boy and when I got back, the internet did not work. It appears that several other "System" resources are not working either.

I did IPCONFIG /ALL and nothing is connected.

I tried to ping the router and got no response. "Transmit failed"

I tried to go to restore and that failed as well.

I went to the store and picked up a new usb wireless card and that did not work either. I feel confident that the issue is NOT the wireless card. I attached a screen shot of the IPCONFIG /ALL screen.

I am having a challenge to figure out how to fix this.

Please help.

We were given a second hand windows XP laptop and tried to connect to out NETGEAR router but it could not connect just kept giving acquiring network address message The correct password was being used as it took a while for me to remember I had to put it in upper case lol so I know it was definitely now trying to talk to the router We could connect OK using a cable it just could not do it via wireless I have desktops and laptop already successfully connected The solution was just to change the SSID in the router I had left the SSID as the default NETGEAR which they do recommend gets changed I looked up the manual on the internet and found it easy to change the SSID Once done the laptop using windows XP connected straight away with no further problem found solution Acquiring address - network wireless My other laptop Windows however complained and I had to connect to the Acquiring network address wireless - solution found new SSID available and yes remembering to use the right case for the passord It connected to the network but was still not connected to the internet I closed down the laptop and on restart it gave me a window to specify what type of network it was my Home network After that it was happy and now I have desktops and laptops all happilly connected to the internet I hope you find this solves your problem nbsp

Hi, as the topic says i'm having some issues trying to get connected to my wireless on my new netbook.

The Netbook is a ASUS 1005Ha running Windows XP SP3. If there is anyting else I need to add please let me know and i'll do my best to provide information. My Router is a D-Link DIR-655.

I was able to find my internet connection and type in the password to attempt to connect but it just hangs on Acquiring network address and under the support tab it says that the Address Type is Invalid IP Address.

I tried to run the repair function and it failed. Also I have tried resetting my modem and router and trying again and it didn't work.

A:[SOLVED] Wireless hangs on Acquiring network address...

The problem has been resolved, had a local computer tech stop by so this topic may be locked/deleted.

Im using Windows XP Professional on both my desktops.
I am using a Netgear 108 mps wireless router, WGT624v3
And a LinksysWireless-G PCI Adapter.
I have completed the setup, I have good signal strength. However I cannot connect to the internet, and The adapter is saying the it is "Aquiring Network Address"
Under the support tab, it reads that I have an invalid IP address and lists the ip address as 0.0.0.0. When I click repair it reads renewing ip address but never seems to renew itself.
I have disabled my firewall restarted both computers, router, and adapter multiple times and still have no success. Please help with any advice or recomendations.

Much appreciated
GJHILE
 

A:Wireless Adapter - Acquiring Network Address Troubleshooting

If your "setup" includes encryption and MAC addresss block or other filtering/security methods you should only add those incrementally as you know other stuff is working

Startout just trying to connect to a simple wireless broadcast and verify your adapter sees the SSID being broadcasted by the router.

You should download and install XP SP3 and do all updates. Use your NIC card and a Ethernet cable to do the updates. That may solve your wireless problems.

Three things to try ...

If you have McAfee please see the sticky thread at the top of this (Networking) forum.

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

Revert to a System Restore Point before the weekend.

A:Wireless Network Detected, but Internet Explorer Wont Connect to network in Win 7

Have you tried any other browsers? SeaMonkey is a good one to try if you don't have another. You can still keep IE as default and have SeaMonkey for backup for web pages that may not display correctly in IE or when you have access problems like you are having now. Being Mozilla-based, it uses a different rendering engine. For those web sites that support pipelining, you may also find that it is considerably faster.

Check your connection settings under Internet Options. In the LAN section, try toggling the "Automatically Detect Settings" option.

A:Network stopped connecting - still acquiring network address...

Glad you fixed your problem.

Just a comment...
When troubleshooting your wireless problem, you summarized the actions you took.

Maybe you just didn't mention doing it, but as a very first thing to do: I find it often helpful during wireless problems to grab a network cable and run wired connection between the computer and router to see (1) if that connection is working (2) see what might be going on in the router and its current status

A:Acquiring network address / network cable unplugged

Rule #1: never allow Windows Update to update your hardware drivers!

Okay, there are lots of other more important rules; that one's probably about #23 or so. Still...

Did you try the "Roll back driver" option to go back to the previous working version? You could try obtaining an older version of the driver and force the system to install that... you don't specify what version of Windows, but most of them try pretty hard to make things mindless for the users and so may not be replacing the bad driver with the one you want if it thinks the bad one is "more suitable".

First, boot into Safe Mode, go to the Device Manager, and Uninstall all the instances shown of the network adapter.

When you reboot, Windows will redetect the NIC - tell it you want to "Install from a list or specific location", then "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.", and finally use the "Have Disk" button to point it at the older version of the driver. It may complain about it being an older or uncertified driver, but tell it to use the driver anyway.

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
Note: you will see entries named Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: we dont need to see that information - JUST the infomation above those entries

How to power cycle

“power cycle” 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’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.

I have started having great difficulting to the internet wireess over the last two weeks. I almost always get a message that my system is ,"acqiring network address" for hours at a time.

A few times I can get connested after hours of rebooting, deleting connection and re acquiring, but it is very painful. There seems to be a Microsoft article # 314067 which describes my situation of DCHP showing a IP address as 0.0.0.0., but I cannot see where they offer a fix.

Has anyone ran into a similar solution. It does not appear to be a Hardwwre issue . Powering down and up does not help. My wireless card is good and shows working. I am stumped.

Yesterday, I started to recieve messages that I was infected with the "Cloud Protection" virus. From research, I understand it affects the computer with false warnings and also affects internet connection. I used another computer to run Malwarebytes and Combofix. Combofix cleaned the computer of any virus and malwarebytes cleaned up after it. Since then, I have not any leftovers from the virus. It seems to be gone.
Now, my problem is I still have no internet and the more I do research it seems I am missing registry files.

Netbios and netbt.sys files are two of the files I am sure were missing.

Is there a way to approach this so I can not only do a system recon, but also get it up and running again without reinstalling windows.

I am running XP.
