Q: Help connecting to wifi

Hi guys, I found an old computer in my basement from 2005 maybe, it's running windows xp. Anyways, I'm can't figure out how to connect it to my xfinity wifi. Every time I press connect to Internet it asks about modems. I've googled how to connect it and I can't seem to figure it out. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

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: Help connecting to wifi

Hey Ryan. Is this a laptop or desktop. If it's a desktop, it likely doesn't have a wireless adapter that will allow connection to you wireless network. If it's a laptop, right click on My Computer,Properties,select Device Manager tab, then look for Network Adapters and click once on the + and see if you see any wireless adapter listed and if it is enabled. You can enable/disable a wireless adapter by right clicking and toggling between enable/disable. In either case, it probably needs quite a bit of work to get it up to date, and assuming everything else seems ok, I myself would start from scratch and reformat the drive and reinstall XP (assuming you have an XP disk for it) since any maintenance programs are just as old. If you're not sure about this, tell us the make and model number of this pc.

Hi, I have a Dell Latitude D620 with a Dell Wireless WLAN. I connect to my wireless connection at home fine, but any time I take my computer to a wifi hotpsot, it cannot connect. I SEE that there is a network there, I click "connect" to that network, and my computer doesn't do anything. My Wireless is set to obtain IP addresses automatically, so that is not the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I might try to fix this??

Thanks!

I have two wifi APs (let's say AP-1 and AP-2) and I sometimes have to switch from one to the other. The AP-1 is my main AP so it is always set with "Connect Automatically" for boot up. But, a lot of the time it does not connect to either AP on boot.

When I need to use AP-2, I select AP-1 and click "Disconnect."

I select AP-2 and Click "Connect" leaving "Connect Automatically" un-checked.

After using AP-2, I again select it and click "Disconnect."

Then select AP-1 and make sure the "Connect automatically" is checked, then Connect.

At the next reboot, about 40% of the times it connects to AP-1 but the rest of the time it connects to neither even though "Connect Automatically" is still checked..

Anyone have some thoughts on how to force this so that it always connects to AP-1 on booting up?

A:WiFi Not Connecting

Info in your profile in the system specs would help greatly...PC/Laptop maker, model, ditto on the network adapters from your Device Manager. A screenshot of your adapter page from network and sharing...what anti-virus are you using, error messages you may have gotten while trying to connect, search for and install Xirrus WiFi desktop gadget, will show you signal strengths and channel info of surrounding connections. I can guess you have an HP with Atheros wifi adapter, have you tried updating the driver for the adapter at HP?

Hi FoldedBrick, and welcome to TSG.

FoldedBrick said:

Well, you or somebody else at your house is going to have to supply a bit more information about the WiFi set-up being used.

1) Name and brand of the wireless router or wireless access point being used to share the Internet connection.

2) The SSID of the wireless router or wireless access point and if it is set to broadcast the SSID.

3) What, if any kind of wireless encryption is being used and the key or pass phrase for that encryption. You do not need to tell us the actual key or pass phrase.

4) If the wireless router or wireless access is using any kind of MAC filtering to limit which computers and other hardware can connect to the wireless router or wireless access.

Not particularly computer-savvy, so bear with me. Trying to connect to Wifi at my hotel, and while I can get on w/ my Mac (personal laptop), I can't get my Dell (work laptop) to connect. It sees the network, but shows Local Only for my IPv4 and Limited Only for my IPv6. Ran a diagnostic with Intel PROSet/Wireless Tools and it fails the Ping Test "Failure getting ping status!" My hunch is that something is preventing the pop-up with the hotel specific access info from popping up, but I've disabled pop-ups and everything else I can think of w/ negres. I'm using Windows Vista Business Service Pack 2. Computer is a Dell E6500 w/ an Intel Core Duo CPU P8600. Any suggestions/assistance would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Connecting to Hotel Wifi

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, kaspersky or Mcafee or any free security suites like zonealarm, AVG , Webroot etc

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 information above those entries

For Windows 8 or Windows 10
To open a Cmd Prompt or an Administrator Cmd prompt from the Desktop.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/open-an-elevated-command-prompt-in-windows-8/
Use Win + X and choose Command Prompt or Command Prompt (Admin) from the list.​
For windows version, XP, Vista, W7
Hold the Windows key and press R

Now type CMD

Now press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):​
In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt ​
It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

Normally my notebook is connected to internet via LAN cable. And everything is OK.

But when I disconnect notebook from LAN and I turn off the Local Area Connection and I connect to the internet via WiFi, Windows after couple of minutes freezes. Even a coursor is freezed and I must restart notebook by pressing turn off button for 5 seconds. Then when I turn on notebook, it starts, but after startup (1-2 minutes) Windows freezes again. This is repeated until I turn off Wireless Connection and turn on Local Area Connection.

Currently I am using a Dell laptop with XP which is connected to my house's wireless connection. SSID itself is an open WEP. I had no problem connecting with the XP laptop; it asked me for a password, I put it in and it worked. When I try connecting with my other Dell laptop with Windows 7, it won't ask me for a password and say, "Windows was unable to connect to _____."

I then tried manually connecting to the wireless connection under the network settings. I've tried all WEP options and made sure the password was correct countless times and still I'm unable to connect to the wifi.

I spoke with a Dell representative, but all they suggested was to pay for another help service.

Hello kao, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

Windows 7 does not support WEP. It is so old and insecure it is not much better than using no security at all.

Instead use WPA or WPA2 for your home wireless network security.

Cheers!

My phone will have signal but will not connect to the network. after trying reboots, deleting the network and reinstalling does not work I reboot the router and then the phone will connect. It will not stay connected though if for any reason I loose signal it will not connect again until I reboot the router. I have connected to other wifi networks without a problem.

You could get a wifi extender which would make the wifi signal stronger & improve the reception for your wireless devices. There's no guarantee a wifi extender will solve your buffering issue but it should help.

Then select AP-1 and make sure the "Connect automatically" is checked, then Connect.

At the next reboot, about 40% of the times it connects to AP-1 but the rest of the time it connects to neither even though "Connect Automatically" is still checked..

Anyone have some thoughts on how to force this so that it always connects to AP-1 on booting up?

A:Wifi not connecting to laptop?

The ipconfig /all is showing no wireless connection at all, but the Xirrus showed a connection but with a "bogus" gateway. I have no idea why the discrepancy.

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from Dell's web site. If that is already installed reinstall it anyhow in case the installed instance is corrupted.

If still not good disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If that is successful try WPA-PSK (not WPA2) encryption.

You do NOT want IP Routing enabled, that's not your issue.

Have you tried disabling all encryption on the router for a test? Where in the connection process does it fail?

have you entered the password , if the wireless is security enabled , try removing the wireless security and see if the windows 8 will now connect

lets see an xirrus screen shot
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
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 the above link does not work heres another link http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_download/fid,77196-order,4/download.html}

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need will need to have NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.
On windows 8 - (i do not have windows 8) but, it would appear that, When you first try to run, you may get a message that .net framework is needed, and included in that message is a link to download/install.

Run the program

A user guide is available here http://www.xirrus.com/cdn/pdf/Xirrus-Wi-Fi-inspectorguide-1-2-1-RevB-6.aspx

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

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

I am having trouble with connecting to a wifi connection via my lap top. The lap top I run has windows XP. The host computer runs Xp as well. SOme days I can connect no problem with great speeds and other times it wont connect at all. It does show that I have (GOOD) signal to the wireless router, so maybe its something with the modem??? It goes day by day and I can not pinpoint exactly why this issue occurs so randomly.
Perhaps you have come across this trouble before.
Any questions feel free to ask.

A:Having trouble connecting to WiFi

One possibility is wireless interference, such as from another wireless network on the same or close channel or a 2.4Ghz cordless phone.

Another possibility is that you have multiple wireless utilities (clients) running. What utility do you use to manage the connection? Are you sure that no other one is running?

Also before this even when i was connected to the internet through Wifi it was showing wired connection icon with a red cross. So i had to uninstall all drivers and reinstall to fix the issue. Now i cant connect to a new wifi or remove programs.
 

A:Issues connecting to WIfi

Given the problems with control panel and what not, you may want to try a system restore point prior to the problems. To do so, press the Windows flag key + R and in the Run open field type: rstrui.exe (press enter). Follow the prompts on screen. Restore point only affects key components of Windows OS and should not affect personal data.

Yesterday my son bought a Y700.  It wouldn't connect to our wifi unless it was literally within 5' of the router. We returned it to Best Buy today and exchanged it for a new one.  The customer service rep said it was probably a bad wireless card. We got the new one home and the same problem happens.  It will start to connect, then lose the connection.  Or not make any connection at all.  Plus, there's a warning on the hardware scan, "Local Connection Test....warning." I doubt it's a problem with our internet connection or router, because people use iPhones and other laptops in the house and don't have any problems wtih connections. If there's not a simple solution, we're just gonna give up on the whole Lenovo laptop idea.

Hi,

I am confused with ip's etc. I have a Linksys WRT54G router that has usemynet software that allows my customers to enter a ticket number and use the internet at my cafe.

This router goes into the modem/router with my isp. They had to set it up for me because usemynet disallows 10.0.0.1 ip and this is what they redirect to... long story. It works.

Anyway I just added a HP Laserjet 4 with jetdirect ethernet into the router/modem. I setup two wireless computers and they connect to the printer at 10.0.0.5 no problem. Both of these computers are logged into the isp modem/router via wireless.

Now if i log into the wifi Linksys with usemynet software, enter a ticket number, i can connect to the internet but now i cannot ping the printer.

The linksys router is set at:

subnet 255.255.255.0
gateway 10.0.0.1

isp modem/router

subnet 255.0.0.0.
gateway 10.0.0.11
Any help would be appreciated.

My laptop has problems connecting to my wifi. Im using a D Link 524 router and my laptop has vista. Itll connect automatically very good for a few weeks then all a sudden have problems where the only fix is to unplug the router and reset. If it does connect, sometimes it says it has limited access or the little world wont appear and I wont have internet access. My wifes Kindle sometimes has problems also and my signal is strong. 

A:Wifi connecting problems

Sounds like you may need to do a DNS flush,
 
Click the Start button.
On the Start menu, click Run....
If you do not see the Run command in Vista, enter run in the Search bar.

Type the following command in the Run text box: ipconfig /flushdns
Let me know if this helps and good luck.

Ask the college campus IT department. They can answer your questions if "the officials" were incorrect when they "said that u cannot connect it through mobile." Closing.

Hi,
Today my computer randomly won't connect to my WiFi anymore. I have never had any problems before. I have tried connecting and disconnecting with no change to the problem. It is not the networks problem as all other PC's in the house can connect to it. The computer cannot connect to any WiFi network.

Here are the specs/model:
Toshiba Satellite L850 (Laptop)
Windows 7
core i7, AMD radeon 7670m, 8 GB ram

If I click on troubleshoot it brings up a message saying:

There might be a problem with the driver for the Hamachi adapter
There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection Adapter
There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection Adapter

If I click on fix it will load for a bit but not change anything.

please help!!!

If it's not to inconvienent, go to a hot spot and see if it connects there. This way we can see if it's the unit or the home connection.

I just bought a refurbished computer, and it has been working great except that it is not connecting to unsecure networks. I'm not talking about ones I should not be using, I'm talking about public ones that you don't need a password to use. It has been working most of the time with secure networks in which a login key and password is needed. However, there have been a few times where even then it doesn't work. It'll say that the signal strength is very good or excellent, but that there is limited or no connectivity. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!!!! Thanks!!!

I use to have a d-link router. It burnt up so I bought a Netgear. It was simple to install. All my computer, IPad etc connected to the internet, but my lap top that has vista will not. It found the wifi and conneced to it, but when I go to log on the internet it tell me that there is NO network and will not connect. So how do I get it to connect.

If it says that it's connected, then it probably already is. There may be something wrong with your laptop. Have you tried connecting your vista laptop to the router using a cable? Have you tried pinging websites?

Hello y'all,
I have the Linksys WRT54G, vers.6 encoded with the most recent firmware update by Linksys. Since that update, I have had some inconsistency keeping online with my all the computers in my home network. Is this caused by my habit of having hardwired desktops (2 of them) on all the time while simultaneously using my WiFi connection for my laptop? Should one or more items be shut down? The update was originally made as a result of my rather weak WiFi connection (it didn't help that).
Thank you.
 

A:Connecting with WiFi and Hardwire

You should be able to freely use the wired and wireless connections on a wireless broadband router. If that causes problems, something is broken.

With the firmware update, did you reset to factory defaults and reconfigure? If not, try that first.

If you did reset to defaults and reconfigure, contact Linksys and find the download for the older firmware and see if that fixes the issue. Obviously, you should reset to defaults and reconfigure for any firmware change.

Hi
I'm pretty computer savvy, but I cannot figure out the issue here.
My LG desktop won't load webpages. When I click on IE the main page loads, maybe after 5 minutes and if you try to load any other pages it doesn't go, or acts like it's on dial up. We have taken it to Best Buy for the Geek Squad and they thought they fixed it, up apparently not.
One error message I got was "The connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken."
We have other computers running off the wifi just fine.
Runs windows 8
Thanks for the help!
 

A:Desktop not connecting to WIFI

Make sure you have the latest correct wireless driver installed, preferably from the PC (first) or adapter (second) manufacturer's web site.

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:

IPCONFIG /ALL

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

[Press ENTER after each command.]

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.
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 a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows Vista or latter I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Hi there! Glad to find this forum and hope you all can be some help! My mate recently bought an old (2002, according to the original sales receipt) Fujitsu Lifebook laptop. The spec on the receipt states it has wifi, yet we have both looked and looked and can't find any way to use it or connect to the internet. I can't even find anything on the start up menu that relates to wifi. According to the manual, the wifi button is top left of the screen, and it's lit by a blue LED. The machine is on Win XP pro and seems fine in every other respect. It's been a while since I last used XP. I am not a complete idiot, but have limited experience!
Any ideas anybody? HELP!

I have a DLINK dir-655 and a netgear wireless router both have 4 wired ports and 1 WAN port and wifi capability. The DLINK is the primary router that connects out to the internet through a cable modem. It is on the 192.169.1.X network with wifi turned on. What I want to do is connect the netgear router to the DLINK router and use the wifi on both the netgear and dlink. The end result is I want to have 2 secure wifi networks with the same IP/subnet range. Ideas? Suggestions? Thanks!

I enter it in.
It asks about if i want to connect to other devices on the network (printers/tvs) y/n answer.
Which ever I pick, it seems to sort of shut my computer down. (maybe sleep?)

I used to connect this pc via ethernet cables connecting through the power circuit. But i'm unable to do that here. So i'm using a Netgear N150 Wireless Adapter which I haven't used in at least a year on this pc. (It worked before)

I'm also running windows 8.

Any known fixes for this?
 

A:Connecting to Wifi shuts down my PC. (kinda) Any help?

Further 'testing'...

I just tried to activate it by pressing the button on the router instead of using the key. Same result.
I opened up the case in it's deadish state. All the fans are still running, but the familiar hum of the HDD has stopped.
The GPU still lights up.

My OS is on an SSD
And i also have a HDD and another SSD in the pc.

A:my laptop is not connecting to wifi network

The following was put together mostly by etaf with a little help from me.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Atheros AR5007EG & AR5007
We have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters for over a year, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and windows Vista.

The 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 here if that works or does not work.

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver." That apparently has worked for some posters.

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section, as some manufactures, appear to now have a working driver available.
Toshiba - update has worked for some PCs
HP The latest HP Atheros driver dated Sept 2010 has fixed the issue - so check the driver date, However, that does NOT apply to all HPs / Compaqs machines
- the poster did an online scan for driver updates on the HP website here HP Product Detection which resulted in a solution. Solved: Can't connect to internet wirelessly - Atheros AR5007 Wifi through Clear Comm - Tech Support Guy Forums

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

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

--- 4) A few posters here with the same issue have found that the driver from this site ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows resolved the issue
Threads are here
Solved: Public Network - Access: Local Only (Please help!) - Tech Support Guy Forums
Solved: NetGear WNDR3700 Incompatibilty W/ Atheros AR5700 - Tech Support Guy Forums
Solved: Local connection only when connected to secured wirless - Tech Support Guy Forums
Solved: Unidentified Network - Tech Support Guy Forums
Unidentified Network
I do NOT know anything about the site mentioned ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows

However, if you do decide to try the driver, Please let us know the outcome

Direct link to the drivers are below
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

AR5007
Vista 32 Bit
Drivers for Atheros AR5007 and Windows Vista
Although this driver has shown up in BSODs (Blue Screen Of Death) on Vista SP2 systems, usually conflicting with updated Vista OS drivers like netio.sys, tcpip.sys and other networking related drivers.

AR5007EG
Vista 32 Bit
Drivers for Atheros AR5007EG and Windows Vista
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.

You might also bug your laptop's tech support about the problem--maybe people can put pressure on Atheros to find a fix.

Can't be 100% sure, but it probably is what messed up your system. I'd try a System Restore to before it began corrupting your system. And if you don't want to uninstall it, at least try to disable that "Tune-Up" thing.

Then install or re-install the latest wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site (assuming that you are using an integrated adapter).

A:Connecting 3 (or 2) PCs via WiFi + security question

Hi Martin,
The first thing you should do is access the router's set-up page and change the SSID and input a new password using the older XP pc as a guide as to what encryption method is used. (it might not be WPA2 compatible).

A:Computer connecting to Wifi, but no other devices

WHats the make and model number of the router? What type of encryption are you using on the WiFi? WPA, WPA2, WES? try disabling the encryption and then try to connect the other devices.

Okay I'm using a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7 and I can connect to my neighbors wifi just fine, but when I go to connect to our home, I enter the correct password and it connects...but the internet doesn't work! I know nothing is wrong with out wifi, my iPhone can connect just fine! I tried searching google and couldn't find much that actually helped, so I decided to make an account and come here. Anyone have ideas?
