Unable to connect to Wifi Networks at Work

Q: Unable to connect to Wifi Networks at Work

Hi,
I bought a new Sony Vaio laptop with Windows 8 installed in it. I'm able to connect to Wifi networks at home but not at work. My laptop has a "Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB EG" WiFi driver installed. I tried to rollback the Wifi drivers and connect but still I'm not able to succeed. Could someone please help me out to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Unable to connect to Wifi Networks at Work

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.)

Got me stumped! My Sony Vaio connects to the net fine at work but at home shows connection to the wireless network but no internet access. Any thoughts appreciated! BTW I'm using a Netgear DGN1000 & IE.

A:Unable to connect to net via wifi at home but is fine at work

Is this a company issued machine ?
Sounds like it should of been connected to your home network before your work network if it was a personal machine ?

Running Win7 Ultimate 32bit here

Am unable to connect to any NEW Wifi Networks that are detected.
The WiFi Adapter sees them just fine - just cannot connect to them.

However am able to connect to existing networks
(SSIDs that already appear in "Manage Wireless Networks").

Furthermore, If I boot into my Win7 Enterprise for work, everything works good.

For example:
I have a saved WiFi connection for my Verizon Hotspot device, that I can always connect to.
But if am at hotel (no encryption), and want to connect to their wireless, It fails to connect...

Is there some sort of Windows Service that might be failing?

I am trying to avoid having to do a Windows Restore, because I fear that it might intefere with
recently installed programs...

A:Cannot connect to any NEW WiFi Networks - only existing...

I think the real problem here is you are trying to connect to unsecured networks.

Windows 7 won't allow this unless you change the network type to Public, as this will secure the files and folders on your machine.

Follow the link which shows you how to change to a Public network and also tells you why the Public network option is there.

Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network

A:Can't connect with wifi or ethernet-can see networks

-are all of the drivers for the adapter up to date?
-have you tried doing a full master reset on the router?

If your fathers internet is fine but the mothers is not it has to be with the adapter somehow. I have had adapters in the past that randomly start to quirk up and then randomly start working fine before it can be strange I know. How old is this adapter anyway? Most adapters ( with heavy use of course ) only lasts around six months to a year, with moderate use they generally do good for about up to about five years.

I decided to re-install Windows 10 on my Satellite C50Dlaptop because I had a lot of junk on the C drive which was slowing itdown. Before doing this I took a systemimage and backed up all the drivers. After I had re-installed Windows 10 it would only connect to one of thetwo wifi networks I have at home whereas, previously, it would connect toeither. I then rolled the machine backusing the disk image and it would again connect to either network. I then re-installed Windows 10 again and madesure the drivers were as in the original configuration and, sure enough, itwould only connect to one of the wifi networks.

What can be causing this? It cannot be a hardware fault because it connects fine in the originalconfiguration. Any ideas please.

A:WiFi Problem Can't connect to secured networks

Does your Wireless adapter use a different utility to monitor wireless networks other then the Windows Utility? There may be another icon in the System Tray in the lower right hand corner that is disabled. Usually right clicking this icon and enabling it should work. Or you may need to find it in the All Programs list to start it. There should be a section where you can edit the saved password for your wireless adapter and once that is removed, you can retype the password for the secured wireless network you are trying to connect to.

Hi all.

Can you help me configure my Win10 to automatically connect to multiple wifi networks?

I have wifi at home so when I get to the office I have to configure the "manage wifi settings" on my laptop, click "forget" my home wifi, and manually enter the office wifi password. I repeat the same process when I get home from the office or use the wifi in my brother's house. I had this on my Windows 7 but can't figure out how to in Win10.

Minor issues, I know, but still a pain. TIA

I read bunch of articles on how to remove a Wifi profile.. However I have problem with networks which aren't in profiles (I only have 1 profile and its my home network)..

I have currently 7 networks when I click on the Wifi icon in the task bar. they are from people living around me I guess. They all have "Connect Automatically" checkbox ticked. If I untick it - it goes back once I move my mouse away.

I cant right-click on it and there is no other options. And as I already said - these aren't in the Wifi profile which you can manipulate through netsh.

Windows 8.1 Pro with all latest updates..

I am pretty sure I saw other people complains about the same issue without much of the results..

Any ideas how to uncheck Connect Automatically for ever and ever?

A:All WiFi networks in range are Connect Automatically.

Unless you have the security passphrase, you are not going to connect to any of those Access Points. All it is showing is available Wifi Access Points that are available to connect to.

A:Wifi seems to work, but I dont have any available networks

Hard to say but i assume the first explanation mark you saw meant the adapter was deactivated. I further assume there is a simple explanatin for this:
 
Maybe your wificard needs to be activated via key combination, look for wifi symbol on your keyboard (usually F5) then press FN and this key. This only works when the driver for the special keys is installed.
 
or
 
When you install wifi drivers they often come with stupid tools that take control over your card/network environment and also often just do not work. Is there some tool/program that came with the driver? Open it and look everywhere to give the control back to Windows.

About a week ago, our cable internet connection went out. Before I had a chance to reboot the modem & router, my 11 year old decided to completely reset the router to factory settings! Ugh! This caused several issues: my home network is now gone, only a unsecured factory network is available. When I try to plug my laptop into the router via ethernet cord (in order to login to router and setup secure network) my computer will not recognize the router and won't connect to internet. I tried troubleshooting with my cable provider and they say it's in my computer (IP address will not reset) and he recommended I replace my network card. However, today when I brought my laptop to work, it will instantly recognize the wifi at work. So is it really my network card that is causing issues? Please help, I'm desperate and not tech too tech savvy!

Hi, for some crazy unknown reason, today when I logged onto my computer, there seemed to be a probelm. My WiFi did not connect automatically to my home network which I had recently added as a favourite network. I typed in the password and it connected. I then went to my network list and noticed that the network had been removed unknowingly, after noticing this, I then tried adding the network manually and guess what, it showed me access denied.

Why is this happening? I am the system administrator and it is still showing me access denied. Please help me, reply ASAP

A:Unable to add WiFi network to Favourite Networks on Vista 64 bit

Hi MrElectrifyer,

The first thing that comes to my mind is "hacked". If someone managed to get access to your router (WiFi or WAN) and changed something in there, your Windows detected that change and stopped it from connecting automatically... maybe. It never happened to me nor haven't heard something like that either but if I were an OS, that's what I would do. Try logging on your router and look for changes specially in the wireless part. If you can, copy your router's NAT and static IPs configurations and restart it with a clip or something and then re-configure it using a stronger password of course.

Cheers,

I reinstalled Windows 7 on a Samsung Series 5 (5 months old) and now I cannot connect to (or even detect) any WiFi networks.

I am currently in an active WiFi environment (confirmed) that I used many times in the past, but when I click "Connect to a network" I get:

"No connections are available."

If I select the "Troubleshoot" option, I get: "Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem"

Prior to the reinstallation, a list of nearby WiFi options would appear and I would access the public option.

Basically, the computer is no longer detecting local WiFi networks.

I won't be surprised if this is something rather basic...

Thanks.

So I've had my wifi working fine up until yesturday when I went to my friends, tried to find a network their, his apartment had a guest network that pulled up a CISCO login page but he didnt know the password so I didn't bother. Now I bring my laptop home and it wont find any networks including my own, which it was on just a few hours before. Tried uninstalling the driver, reinstalling via Windows 7 reboot. Updated a newer driver from Toshiba, and enabled and disabled the function-f8 key (wifi) many times to see if that was the problem. Be nice to have my wireless back if anyone can help.

I attached a screenshot of my ipconfig. thanks

For some reason my Windows Vista allows me to connect to my secured internet at home but it won't allow me to connect to any unsecure network (ie. hotel or cafe internet). Has anyone else had this problem and how do you fix it? I have checked all the setting and cannot figure out what is preventing me from being able to access unsecure networks.

A:Unable to connect to unsecure networks

Make sure your set to "automatically detect settings" for ip address and dns address... If not, that SHOULD fix it; however I have noticed that for some strange reason, my Microsoft experience (with xp and vista) is that SOME computers do not want to get automatic (DHCP) addresses from SOME routers (theres no rhyme or reason to it), when others do! If thats the case, manually entering an ip/subnet/gateway/dns address that works with the network you are connecting to usually lets you in! (If its a public router, like a hotel or hotspot, then good luck guessing the right numbers!)

I've also tried disabling and re-enabling the adapter, but nothing has helped. At this point when I run diagnostics it just tells me that Windows can't fix the problem. Does anybody know what's up here? Thanks in advance!


You can't always rely on the auto settings to connect to wireless networks.

Often times you need to go to "Manage Wireless Networks" which is in the Network and Sharing Center.

You can right click on the network icon "lower right on the task bar" to get to the network and sharing center. Once there you can look to the left side and open up "Manage Wireless Networks".

Once there you can type in the SSID "name of network you are connecting too" and also the password for network you are attempting to connect to.

You will need the wireless password for this.

You should also designate the type of security, for Windows 7 it's best to use WPA-2 personal with AES encryption, but all these settings depends on the network you connecting too. You can also put check marks to allow a connection when the network is in range.

The desktop used to connect by direct cable to my router but since the upgrade the new router is in a different position and a cable connection is not a practical option.

I bought a Belkin Surf+ Wireless Adapter (802.11n ) and installed it. The specs say that it is Win 7 compatible. Even so I went to the Belkin website and downloaded the drivers from there. The installation went smoothly. The adapter is recognised and is listed in the device manager as working correctly and is enabled.

However the 'Network Icon' in the task bar shows the no connections are available. Going to the Network and Sharing centre and clicking on 'Connect to a network' produces the same result - no connections available.

Clicking on 'Manage Wireless Networks' produces a blank list (there should be at least 2 networks available - my own and a neighbour's). Clicking 'Add' and 'manually create a network profile' produces a screen with the message 'An unexpected error occurred'.

I am using Win 7 64 bit Home Premium and an 802.11n wireless router.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks


Good morning Ian, may I suggest that you hard wire connect the desktop to the router along with the wireless adaptor and re-load and install the belkin drivers? Let Windows 7 perfrom this function instaead of Belkin perform it.

I recently found out my laptop (Windows Vista)...cannot connect to secured networks. I was to connect to router using ethernet cable before, then i can connect to an unsecured network just fine... please help...i remember that 2 years ago i can connect to secured networks...

please help... i can't provide the name or brand of the router since it is owned by the landlord and only provided me with the password...please help....thank you...
 

A:unable to connect to secure networks, unsecure fine

lets see an ipconfig /all
is the wireless adapter
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007
We have recently been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapter over the last few months, 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

I do NOT know anything about the site mentioned ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows However, a number of forum members have now successfully used the site to update the driver

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

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.

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.

I have a HP Notebook 15. I restarted my laptop this morning and when it came back on, all options for connecting to the internet via WiFi were gone. I am able to connect to the internet via ethernet cable, and everything works this way.There are no options whatsoever to connect to WiFi or reset the connection or anything, however the WiFi itself is working because other devices in the house are connected to it. I followed a HP technical support online page, which provided step-by-step instructions of various ways to reconnect to WiFi but nothing worked. I tried restarting the computer, updating the driver software, making sure it wasn't in airplane mode, and troubleshooting. Nothing worked. What should I try next?

I have Toshiba laptop and Win 7. It is brand new laptop and original windows. I tried to install AWUS036H and it was successful but unfortunately adapter doesn't detect any networks. It happened with my old laptop with Win 7(Acer) and I had to reinstall windows fresh and it worked. But I wouldn't like to do it again here. As you may see on picture internal adapter has X in corner and it is working but RTL8187 doesn't, it just says Enabled and nothing happens. No networks detecting. In device manager everything is fine, no yellow icons. Also it is not detected by my ipconfig/all command. The same thing happens in safe mode

Adapter is not broken, it is working on linux. This is image from win 8.1 but it happens on my Win 7

What driver is currently installed?

Try this

Download the latest ar956x driver from here:
https://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wirel...et=83&system=5

Version: 10.0.0.297
Release: 2014-07-22 [July '14]
OS: Windows 7 32/64bit
Status: WHQL
File: win7-10.0.0.297-whql.zip (2585 KB)

Unzip the package and note the location
Uninstall the driver from the device in Dev mgr, remove software if presented (checkbox or prompt)
then update the driver from within Dev mgr using the unzipped inf file

Some reports on the Qualcom board indicate that you might have success with an earlier version 10.0.0.263, but I only see 10.0.0.255 then 10.0.0.270 on the site I linked.

Try the newest first , then the 255 (270 was the one the poster on Qualcom complained about)

Maybe the Toshiba site has a version that works. My method is to install the base or original driver from the PC OEM support page and work up if the peripheral board driver doesn't help solve the issue.


Please fill in your SevenForums specs so members can be more help - All I know is that you have a Toshiba laptop with Win7 on it.

Please don't waste your time typing the information in a post - place it in your system specs - then any time you create a thread, people can look at your machine specs in the lower left hand corner of any post.

Specific model information is important, there are usually many Satelltite models.

First, please forgive me if this is formatted oddly- I am typing this on my Blackberry.

For the past few months, I have been accessing the internet with my laptop's wifi through my neighbor's password-protected network (with his permission). I also sometimes go online using another neighborhood network which does NOT have a security key.

As of today, I can view networks and connect to both of these (as well as others), but I can't get online. I get the "No Internet access" message when I connect to any network.

When I go to the command prompt and type ipconfig /all, I get this for IPv4 address: 192.168.1.9(Preferred) and I cannot successfully ping any ip addresses.

I have rebooted already and renewed my network adaptor. Any other suggestions would be very welcome. Thank you!

Ok so I am working at a friend's house and I have run into a debacle. He needs his wireless adapter to be in a new room with better reception for the house. There are two Wall ports let's say port A and port B. He used to be in port A but wants to move to Port B. When hard connected to either port the internet works fine as well as generates the same IP, DNS, and gateway settings. When I connect Wireless however only port A connects to the internet. Port B will not connect to the internet even though the IP, DNS, and gateway are still the same when I check the wireless ipconfig. Any ideas. I have tried renewing, refreshing, flushing dns cache, making sure his ipv4 is automatic.

Hi there,

My neighbour has a problem which I've tried to help with, but have to say am stumped....

He is running a cable modem into a wireless router (Belkin), but since changing ink cartridges on the printer (maybe a coincidence) has lost his internet connection.

The PC (desktop running Xp) connects to the network, but there is no internet connection. I've been there with my laptop and all is well.

It also seems that every time you try to do something with network connections etc, the PC freezes the window/app and you have to reboot/log off and on.

I've never seen this before, but am thiniking pehaps the network card is done for.

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Thanks
BJB
 

A:Unable to connect to Net via WiFi

Can't think of any reason changing the ink cartridges should effect the internet connection.

If I understand the problem:

Cable Modem --------> Belkin Router ---------> Desktop
No internet connection for the desktop.

Are you sure the Desktop is connecting to the Belkin? Can he access the Belkin's user interface from the desktop? If he can acccess the Belkin, then the card and cable is probably OK.

Did he try connecting directly to the cable modem to see if that works?

If you connected wireless, try connecting your laptop by the same ethernet cable to see if that works?

Could you supply the followong information for the desktop?

Taken from a JohnWill post.

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, one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

Note that there is a space before the -n or the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the - or / in the following commands.

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

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

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Hi, if you right click on the network that you're trying to connect to is there a "forget network" option or anything similar? If so click it and forget the network, then it will prompt you for the new password when you try to connect after forgetting it

I am having trouble connecting to any websites through wifi. I have connected to the wifi and used CMD to ping google.com and i get no errors but when i open my browser and try it it says "? Make sure the web address Google is correct ? look for the page with your search engine ? Refresh the page in a few minutes. " all of which i have done i then proceeded to click the Fix connection problems button and i get an alert saying nothing could be found. How do i fix it?

A:Unable to connect through wifi

Which web browser are you using? If you are using internet explorer, do a reset by going to tools, internet options, advanced, reset, ok, then start browser again. Make sure there are no proxies set that would interfere.

Also check any security software or antivirus, they can cause this problem many times.

(My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium)I have had this laptop since 2011 and somewhere in 2012 I think I somehow deleted the ralink WiFi adapter.I haven't been able to use WiFi since then.I got on the HP Recovery Manager and reinstalled the drivers and it alerted me that Ralink 802.11 b/g/n WiFi Adapter was unable to reinstall.So I looked it up and downloaded it on this website and it saved in a folder called c:\SWSetup\SP56942But after that nothing happens.Can anyone help me out?

A:Unable to connect to WiFi?

Hi: If your notebook is missing the wireless card driver, there should be a device listed in the device manager under an Other Devices category named Network Controller. Please post the hardware ID for the network controller device so I can figure out what driver it needs. To find the hardware ID, go to the device manager and click on the Network Controller device. Then click on the Details tab at the top of the Network Controller window. Now you will see a Property drop down list and it will be set to Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

Hi,

I am using a Nokia Siemens router. Using two laptops one with Vista and another with XP-SP3. My laptop is Acer and my wifes is HCL. And now the issue is that after i set the Security for network with WPA-PSK. My wifes laptop detects and tries to Connect with the network but finally it fails. I tried some possible steps and it didnt work. My Vista Laptop works fine after i delete the old access point.

Can Someone help me to fix this ?

A:Unable to connect thru wifi

She's using the same Network SSID and WPA-PSK security and algorithms and shared key?

The router is set to allow ALL MAC access (not block by MAC)?

The router is set for multiple access (usually a 50 address range)?


The wireless network mode is set compliant with her mode (G, B)?

I'm just rambling off everything I can think of.

A:unable connect wifi

has windows 8 now been completely re-installed ?

can you connect to the router with a cable and does it work that way

is it a desktop or laptop ?
Check the wireless is switched ON
theres often a physical switch or a combination of the FN and one of the F keys to toggle the wireless on/off
often F2 is used - but note , not always - look for a symbol that looks a little like (( i ))

is the wireless on?

A:Unable to connect thru wifi

it may be that the hardware in the HCL PC does not support WPA-PSK - depending on how old - but also may just need a driver update

Whats the exact make and model of the HCL - see if a later driver is available from the manufacturers website

Hi,

Hope you are all doing good. From past few days I am not able to connect to any wireless networks on my laptop which is running windows 7 64-bit. I didn't change/install anything, it stopped working suddenly. I was able to connect to LAN and it's working perfectly fine. All other devices (phones and others computers) are able to connect to my Wi-Fi networks. I tried many things like re-installing my Wi-Fi adapter drivers, reset my router, clearing the Wi-Fi networks and adding them, many reboots, and few steps like clearing DNS and other settings as per the instructions on the Microsoft website. Can you please review and advise a good solution. Please let me know if you need any further info.

Thank you in advance.

Ever since I got internet home service with Charter, I have been unable to connect to public hotspots. or rather I can connect for about 15 sec, and then my computer automatically disconnects. This never happened when I had home service with Verizon. Is there a setting that needs to be changed on my HP?
 

A:unable to connect to public wifi

Do you actually get connected and are able to see a web page at a public hotspot? Have you made SURE your firewall is properly configured to allow you to connect to the hotspot? Perhaps you've restricted the connection to a specific IP address subnet?
Let's see this when you're at home, and again when you try to connect to a public hotspot.

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 command:

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

IPCONFIG /ALL

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

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I'm unable to connect with some Hotel wifi's but many others there's not an issue. The hotels where I can not connect sees the wifi and says it connects, but the browse and everything else says it's not connected. When connected to many Hotels a splash page will appear for acknowledgements or passwords, but no splash pages appear when I can not connect. I have not updated or know that I need to update my wifi drivers, but the Hotels I'm having issues with are not the ones with the newest routers and my home wifi is the latest technology.
 
I've had issues in the past and I do not remember any of the solutions. Would flushing the DNS help? I'm running Win 8.1.
 
Thank you

A:Unable to connect to wifi at some hotels and able to with many others

Some of it will depend how the hotel manages their network. Some use passwords, some use splash screens and some just have open networks. Some splash redirects don't work right away and take a couple minuets to come up. specially if its a small hotel and its check in time. Other redirects don't work with some browsers like Chrome. Last, try manually entering in a website in the address bar to trigger the redirect.

Hello, I'm having some wifi issues. In the past few weeks I've only been able to use the internet on my laptop when connected via ethernet, despite having used the same wireless, router, laptop, etc perfectly fine for years!
 
When I first start up my laptop, I can see the list of my available connections. I press connect for my usual home router and then it will say "Windows was unable to connect to blahblahblah". And then the list will have a red cross and claim no connections are available. 
 
If I press troubleshoot problem, Windows Network Diagnostics says to "investigate router or access point issues", which involves turning the device off (done this several times). When I select "check to see if problem is fixed", it thinks for a bit then says "Windows cannot resolve your wireless connectivity issue".
 
Please can you help?  

A:Windows unable to connect to Wifi

Welcome to BC. !
 
Have you Reset the router ?....this usually involves inserting the end of a paperclip into a tiny hole located on the router itself......google the name of the router and it will show you where that hole is.
The word Reset should be written directly above/beside the hole.
 
To do this, press and hold the Reset button for 10 seconds. NOTE: Resetting your router to its default factory settings will also reset your router's password. The router's default password is “admin” as for the username, just leave the field blank.

Hey all!

Few days ago I got Acer V5-531. On this laptop, I can easily connect to wireless networks, but my home one. I could do it on my old laptop with no problems. How is it possible to solve this? It's getting quite annoying, especially knowing that this is the only network I can't connect to. In case with this network, it prompts password and then says "Unable to connect".

What have I tried

Air Mode is off
Updating/rolling drivers back
Resetting the router once (owned by neighbor, thus, I cant perform all maintenance on it)
router lights are on
pw is correct
wireless switch is on
What else can be done?
Thanks all!

A:Solved: Unable to connect to wifi on 2nd laptop

can we see an xirrus screen shot

Have you got the correct password for WEP for the wireless setting
remove the wireless profiles and reconnect and re-enter the password - see below

whats the make and model of the router - i would log intothe router and remove the WEP setting and see if you can now connect

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wireless Profiles
http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm
- Vista/Windows7:
http://www.tp-link.com/support/showfaq.asp?id=214
- delete the wireless profiles
Start> control Panel> classic view> network and sharing center> manage wireless networks

Delete the profiles
you will then have to enter the wireless security key for any networks you connect to - so make sure you know the correct password , and not using an incorrect password at all

Hello, I have lost my wifi access via wifi. 
I am using my own router and all other devices are working fine.
It is picking it up, showing 5 bars and saying it is connected and I have internet access, but will not go onto any Internet pages.. Chrome
says DNS PROBE FINISHED NO INTERNET. 
When I ran troubleshooting on the wifi connection the the problem found was ' the remote device or resource won't accept the connection'. 
Please can someone help?
Thanks in advance, Jan

I purchased a new ASUS laptop a couple of days ago and have been trying to use the hotel wifi where I am staying to do the various updates and installs that new computers require. Unfortunately, while I can connect to my tethered cell phone, I cannot connect to the hotel.

I have another computer on hand that has no difficulties connecting to the hotel wifi, so I know the problem is in the new computer somewhere.

Network adapter is a Broadcom 802.11ac

Actions so far:

Updated Windows 8.1 to current
Attempted to reinstall drivers (uninstalling first) - Drivers are up to date and identical to the ones on manufacturer's site.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

A:New computer - unable to connect to public wifi

The problem is not with the computer or Windows 8.

There are many routers that are not compatible with the new 802.11ac standard. It's unlikely that a hotel will update the firmware on the router for you which may help but in many cases a new ac router will be required.

Try using another n type adaptor, USB perhaps.

After a power outage, my laptop and sister's phone would not connect nor recognize our router. We turned off the router and rebooted it, after which her phone connects but my laptop still would not connect at all. I tried manually setting up the network on the laptop, the network still won't pop up anymore.

A:Unable to connect to public Wifi, windows 10

Try to Reset your WiFi : Settings>Network & Internet>Network Reset. You will lose all the Passwords and Config. Windows will reboot ,but it waits 5 min. to do it.
Try to Reset Firewall: Control Panel>Firewall>Restore Defaults . There is also an Option "Troubleshoot my Network"
Try the Troubleshooter: Control Panel>Troubleshooting>View All>Internet Connection

For the fastest repair option, you could do a repair install.

Repair Install

You do not need to upgrade your OS to fix the issue.

When did this start happening?

Install any hardware or software recently?

I have a new iPhone 4Gs. at work I noticed under available networks that there is one labeled 'Free Public WiFi' but when i try to access this i get no where. no error messages come up or request for password. Mainly I'm trying to use this wifi for FaceTime connect with the iphone. I am told that others try to access this network and can't get to the internet either.
What could be the problem? the strength is about 50% but even when I walk to an area that is supposedly FULL strength signal it won't work then either. the DHCP address is:169.254.106.123 subnet mask: 255.255.0.0

Well, you most likely answered your own question. Others that try to connect can't either. I'd suggest that maybe that free public WiFi isn't working.
