Q: Desktop Wireless network not connecting

HP Pavillion with Windows Vista
Using a Diamond 300 mbps Wireless Repeater
Netgear Wireless Dualband Router N600 WNDR3400v2

When attempting to open IE, a popup opens that says:
Connect to 10.0.10.254
The server 10.0.10.254 at GoAhead requires a username and password.
Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection).
User name:
Password:
and OK and Cancel

In device manager, computer doesn't recognize a wireless device.
It displays NVIDIA nForce 10/100 mbps Ethernet but nothing else.

Other devices (laptop,Ipad) can connect to the wireless in the home.
Internet provider says it is not on their end.

Can someone please offer some advice on how to resolve this issue.

Thank you

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: Desktop Wireless network not connecting

Go to Device Manager, find the wireless adaptor. It should have a yellow ! symbol next to it.

Post details here, then you need to install the drivers for it.

If you provide some information about the "desktop", like the version/patch level of Windows, the indications in Device Manager for the NIC, etc. we might be able to help.

In addition, open a DOS window and type:

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

So i'm having an issue connecting my desktop to my home network for file sharing. My Desktop is connected to the internet like so: Desktop ->(Ethernet cable)-> Uverse 2wire router -> Internet.

I have no issues with my internet connection, and in fact I am posting this from my desktop now. Windows Network Diagnostics finds no issues when I run the trouble shooter. and when I try to connect to a home group it refers me to the network issue.

This issue has plagued me for about 6 months now. I have talked to Uverse tech support, and many of my friends who are into computers and have gotten no answers. Computer is running windows 7 SP1 and again the router is the Uverse 2wire router

How can I make my desktop available for network sharing?

Also here is a screenshot of the network map according to this computer

A:Connecting to Wireless Network

Did you installed the wireless adapter driver and software to your pc?
If you are having troubles to determine the model of the adapter use everest (free)
Download Everest Home Edition 2.20 Free - Everest Home Edition - a freeware system information, system diagnostics and benchmarking solution - Softpedia

I assume you already did that, make sure you download the software as well (some adapters are only works with their dedicated software.)

Is there any conflicts in Device manager?
Make sure the adapter is enabled in setup (BIOS) (if its integrated)

Hi again,

I am trying to connect to a WPA wireless network using a Windows Vista laptop. I am able to connect to this network with other Vista machines without any issues, just enter the key and go. I am able to connect to other wireless networks with this computer.

The wireless NIC has been updated to the latest version and is 802.11g. (WPA capable)

I havent really dealt with Vista, are there any known issues in Vista with WPA?

Any other ideas on what I could try?

I have two wireless networks using two different routers. I can connect easily to both networks from five of my other computers, some that use XP, one with Vista and one with Windows 7. I have another AIO computer using Windows 7 that will only connect to one of the networks although both the networks appear on the list of available networks and the signal strength indicates excellent on the network that won't connect. I disconnect the network that I can access, try to connect to the other but I get the advice that the computer cannot connect. I have typed in the correct codes, do everything as on other computers but it just won't connect on this one. After a few seconds the computer automatically connects to the previous network. Any ideas?

A:Connecting to a second wireless network

If you are using WEP on that second router you will most likely need to go with WPA2 security with AES encryption instead. You will need to change the wireless profile in Windows 7 as well.

There are many new Windows 7 approved drivers that will not work with the outdated and less secure WEP security.

A:Connecting to wireless network

In the desktop computers that are already connected to the wireless, do the following:

1) Click on the wireless icon in the notification area (system tray), it'll show the names of all the wireless connections detected. Your home connection (to which you are connected) will be in bold with the status "Connected". That'll give you the name of the network.

2) To locate your key, just right click on the connection (that you saw in 1), click on Properties, then click on Security tab. Check the box "Show characters" to reveal the network security key.

A:Connecting to wireless network

it may be using a wireless utility you installed and conflicting with the XP wireless utility WZC
do you know the name of the utility you installed - it would be worth stopping this process and allowing windows zero configuration WZC to control the adapter
lets see an xirrus screen shot and a ipconfig /all

also do you have a firewall or security suite - now or old version maybe a trial version of norton or mcafee etc
------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 results here

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

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then 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 to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

I am trying to connect a wireless but it is not connecting with error say, "selected network not in range despite having five bars and just sitting 2 feet from router. You may refresh your wireless network." I have modem and router model AN 1020- 25. My Laptop is acer having windows xp sp 3. Let me add that my laptop is also showing 3/4 other networks also who are in the range.
 

A:Wireless network not connecting

Two feet can be too close. Try five to ten feet away.

What wireless utility (XP's WZC, Acer ..., adapter specific) are you using and are you sure that no other one is running?

What, if any, non-Windows firewall or security suite do you have on the machine?

I think, maybe, the highlighted text above is significant in that you say you can see the router "sometimes". It may be that the signal across your house is dropping off enough to cause the problem.

Question: You say that your iTouch connects with no issues. Does it do so from the position of the computer?

Another thought: Have you attempted the connection with all the wireless security turned off (just for a moment). My understanding (and it's slim at best) is that wireless security can cause signal strength issues.

I am running a WEP bit encryption with one network key which I specified myself and a MAC Desktop connecting terminates wireless connection??? address filter allow only specified wireless NIC cards The router acquires an IP address from the cable modem receives DNS addresses and gateways The router then assigns via DHCP the IP addresses to all computers I used three laptops on the network without any problems I get decent data transfer rates etc But once I fire up my desktop all other connections are severed all laptops suddenly lose internet connectivity wireless signal is still intact though and my desktop takes FOREVER even to start ONE page Once I shut off the desktop everything seems to be back to normal Does anyone have any unusual ideas I am going to try switching to a different LAN port on the back of my router But then I am officially out of ideas Any help is appreciated thanks nbsp

A:Desktop connecting terminates wireless connection???

If different LAN port (may as well try them all) makes no difference, try a different cable.

If that makes no difference, try a different computer--that is, if one of your laptops has an ethernet port, try that hard wired instead of the desktop.

I've never tried to connect to it. Once it's connected however, with limited connectivity, I don't have the ability to right click on it and say "Forget this network" or do anything to it such as when I connect to another wireless it says:

Show Estimated Data Usage
Set as Metered Connect
Forget this Network
View Connection Properties

Nothing.

I have not found a way to stop my laptop from connecting to it.

Any ideas?

I'm new to a wireless network and I want to connect my HP printer so my lap tops can access it also. My HP Photosmart printer is connected to my Dell Desktop using XP home. One of my laptops uses XP home also and one uses Vista.
I have connected my computers to my network and I went into my desktop and clicked the share printer tab. I also downloaded the drivers for the printer to my laptops but I cant get either laptop to print. What am I doing wrong?
Thanx in advance,
George
 

A:Connecting a printer to a wireless network

On each pC
- go to your network properties and make sure that you have "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" installed under the General tab
- set the workgroup to the same value (e.g. mygroup), and make sure each pc has a unique short name (e.g. pc1, pc2 etc.)
- (temporarily) disable any software firewalls that you are running (ZoneAlaram, Comodo, Windows Firewall etc.)

- make sure the PC with the printer attached is on and the printer is on and working and the printer has a simple share name (e.g. printer1)
- at your XP laptop go to Start->Printers and Faxes->Add New printer, choose Networked printer and then type \\pc1\printer1 (or whatever you called your pc and printer) when prompted for the name
- this shoud now install the printer (note that the full drivers do not need to be installed on each PC for it to be able to print)

If the above works then try it on the Vista PC next and finally reenable your firewall and try and configure it to allow printing.

Christian; Welcome to Windows 7 Forums!! We are here to help, if we can.

Looking at your post, I would like to get the simple questions answered first. It seems it is the laptop that has the problem. You say you tried to "manually connect"? you would need to create the "new wireless connection? Then use "Manage wireless networks" to edit settings?

You also said there are other wireless networks detected? Does the laptop detect these networks but not the school's network?

Workgroup settings, not HomeGroup? What does the troubleshooter tell you? What IP address is DHCP assigning?

Sorry if you have already checked all this out. Post back with more details and lets see what we can find?

A:Keep connecting/disconnecting from wireless network

Well you have effectively isolated the problem. The router is fine, since you could connect via Ethernet, and the wireless access point on the router is fine, since other devices are connecting wirelessly. This isolates the problem to your machine. Since I seriously doubt there is a hardware failure with your WiFi card, that leaves something in the software. Since you can connect in some fashion (via Ethernet), Windows is not to blame. The isolates further.. Id say the problem sits between Windows and the physical card, i.e., the driver, the adapter settings/properties, etc.

Not that I think it's relevant, but I would disable the Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapters - I doubt you are using them (the Realtek GBE is your Ethernet). Also, I know you said your drivers are up to date, but are they Microsoft drivers, or Intel drivers? Make sure you have the manufacturers latest driver, not Microsoft's. Or maybe this is the case: I believe Windows Update gives updates to drivers the same way it gives all other updates, so perhaps it is that you have updated your wireless driver recently without knowing it? If so, try rolling back the driver, if possible. I have had to roll back my wireless driver on more than one occasion because there was a problem with it, and couldn't update it again until the manufacturer released a fixed version.

Make note of your Ethernet adapter's settings, then compare them to your wireless settings - not only the IPv4 Properties dialog, but also look over the tick boxes on the adapter settings, where you see IPv4, IPv6, Link-Layer Mapper and Responder, etc. Also, and I probably should've led with this, if you have any Intel (or any other 3rd party) wireless utility running, close it. If it is a 3rd party connection utility, I strongly recommend uninstalling it.

(As a note, the Association of a wireless card with a WiFi network is part of the connection process, taking place after the Probe Request/Response exchange [the Probes are basically just the router and computer making sure each other are there and are talking about the same network]. Anyways, the Association is what gives your computer a status with the router in which the router will start listening to what you send its way. In WPA networks, as well as modern WEP configurations, Association is dependent upon the exchange of credentials [WEP key, pre-shared key, etc.]. Thus, if the Intel diagnostic utility is to be believed, and your wireless password in your wireless network profile is correct, your wireless card would seem to be having problems communicating on the 802.11 [WiFi] standard, further suggesting a driver issue.)

Had a similar issue the other day w/ the same router... Humor me and change your wireless encryption from WPA2 down to WPA, or from WPA to WPA2. Whichever you are using, change it to the other. Also change the password on your wireless network. Then try it. If it still doesn't work, try changing the wireless channel to 1 or 11. If all else fails, reset (not restart/power cycle) your router back to the factory default and re-setup the wifi network. Post back and let me know if this resolves your issues. Take care!

I have a new HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Premium.  When I try to connect to my wireless network, I get an error message "Invalid wireless password (WPA) entered". I have three computers connected to the network, all using the same WPA password, so I know that this is the correct password. Can anyone help?

Try changing the signal of your wifi router to 802.11bg (both B and G). Worked for me.

I have recently purchased an Xbox which has a Wifi connection built into it. I can access internet and download via Xbox live. The strngth of the connection to the router seems pretty good

I have also tried to set up Media Centre and have one through the relevant instructions and can successfully connect to my PC to view photos, video etc, however the connection is very poor according to the XBOX and sometimes drops off.

My Set up is a PC with a Thomson V585 v7 wireless router connected via ethernet with one additional PC connecting wirelessly and an XBOX

I dont quite understand how the broadband can have a strong connection whilst the network is weak?

Are there any settings checks I can perform to improve this

A:Connecting XBOX to Wireless Network

Is your computer hardwired to the router or wireless? Are they both in the same room, or close to the router? Sometimes, distance playes a huge role, and so does how many barriers the signal has to travel through.

A:Wireless Network, Identifying Yet Not Connecting

can you explain your network - modem, router , make and models
anything else on the router work - is it just your PC

can we see an xirrus screen shot - see below

what security suite / firewall do you have or ever had on the PC ?

also try a tcp/ip reset
------------------------------------------------------------------------
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

http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifi_download_redirect.php
Then run and install the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

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, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.
Full details are here http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_Posting_a_Screenshot

Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better.

Here's what error i'm receiving "The computer currently has limited connectivity to "Wireless network name""
It only every see's limited access and I havent had one succesful connection.

Here's a list of what i've tried;

- Installed a new Wireless card as Desktop did not come with one, the drivers have been fully checked and are up to date according to Windows 7.
- Refreshed DNS, however, this error came up "An error occurred when renewing the interface "Wireless connection 2" : Unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out. No operation can be performed on Local Area Connection while it has it's media disconnected"
- I live in a student house and we previously all had problems with our network and our vista laptop, we all had to disable ipv6 and I had to disable uPnP in router settings.

Router is a Netgear WGR614v9.
Wireless card is a Sweex 54 MBPS wireless card.
And Device manager displays this as "Realtek 8185 Extensible 80.11b/g Wireless Device"
With "Realtek PCIe GBE Family controller" underneath.
Thanks for any advice, i'm really stuck.



AIO welcome

a couple of things you can try to narrow down what it can be. I assume since IPv6 is disabled you are NOT using 'homegroup'. hoomegroup needs IPv6.

now type ipconfig /flushdns followed by ipconfig /renew. does this help?
run ipconfig /all use the snipping tool (type snipping tool in search to make a screen shot of the output.

try pinging msn.com

Hi everyone, I recently had to format my hard drive and reinstall vista onto my laptop. Since then, I haven't been able to connect to either my home router, or more recently (since I moved to my Dad's) to his router. Every time I try and connect it says "Wireless association failed due to an unknown reason." My only options are "Try connecting to Livebox-3268 again", which results in a repeat of the original message after an attempt at repairing, or to "View available wireless networks", of which there aren't any.

Any help with this situation would be much appreciated, I can post any details of my laptop and router on request, although I am a bit of a beginner with computers so you may have to bear with me if I need a few extra steps to clarify how to do something.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Problem connecting to my wireless network

Open Device Manager and see if there are any red x's or yellow flags next to your network adapter. Next, open a command prompt and type the following without the quotes and paste all the results back here, "ipconfig /all". Also check, open IE, click Tools, Internet Options, Connection Tab and then the LAN Tab and in the window that opens make sure that all the check boxes are clear, if not clear them and close IE and re-open IE.

I've enabled all the the security features of my home wireless network, ie WPA with pre shared key and only MAC addresses I specify can connect. There is an option to turn off the beacon of my router. I can see the benefits of not advertising the presence of my network, but how do I connect to it with the beacon off? I mainly connect with my pocket PC where I have specified the correct network name, but whenever the beacon is off it lists the network as 'unavailable'.

There is two laptops connected to the wireless network which i would like to be able to print from, both running windows XP.

Can i set it up with the current equipment but require having the desktop computer running to print or is there a way to directly connect the printer to the wireless router?

Hi: There can be one of several different wireless network adapters installed in your PC. Please post the hardware ID for the network controller. To find the hardware ID, go to the device manager and click on the Network Controller needing drivers. 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. Also do the same for the unknown device (s), as there are a few devices that can be labled that way.

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


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


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

Could anyone offer any help or advice to connect my partner's laptop to my wireless network?

The router is a Sagem provided by my ISP (Sky). The wireless connection works fine on my MacBook, and various other devices connect no problem with the security key.

However, his laptop (Windows Vista) will not connect wirelessly. After entering the password, it says it can't connect because it 'times out' (we are obviously entering the password immediately with no delay). It connects fine with an ethernet cable. It will also connect to an unsecured wireless network we can pick up.

The security setup is WPA-PSK with TKIP encryption, and we've made sure he is using these settings.

If it might be important, he has just moved here, and previously his laptop was connected to another Sky router with no problems.

Any help would be welcome - many thanks.

Make sure he has the latest wireless driver. If the adapter is integrated it should be from the laptop manufacturer's web site.

A:Connecting Printer on Wireless Network

Hi, nashie

Silly question to start of with, but have you set up a home network ?
If so is the network the same name on both computers ?
Have you also enabled file and printer sharing ?

I had trouble with XP I am connected to the XP through a Netgear and it was a little bit of a nightmare,.

Steve.

I have a wireless network at home but my laptop does not connect to it. The network works as my iPhone connects to it az well as my PS3. The laptop finds the network and has full bars for connectivity but it is only on a local network. I don't have a P.C in the home, the only time I can go online is when the laptop is plugged in. My laptop operates with vista.

My HP Mini netbook shows the wireless network that I have here at home, but even after putting in the password, it does not connect to the wireless network. It says "Acquiring Network address" but never connects. My other laptop (a Sony Vaio) and my dvd blue-ray player connect just fine to the wireless network and only this netbook doesn't. I have no clue how to get it to connect. Here is the information from the IPCONFIG /ALL:

Windows IP Configuration
Host Name ........................... : your-6c359a3bdc
Primary Dns Suffic ................ :
Node Type ........................... : Broadcast
IP Routing Enabled................ : No
WINS Proxy Enabled ............ : No

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:
Media State ......................... : Media disconnected
Description .......................... : 802.11n Wireless LAN Card
Physical Address ................. : 00-1B-41-F2-44

Thanks in advance for any help that is provided.
 

A:Hp Mini not connecting to wireless network

Were you ever able to connect this PC to that particular wireless network? If so ...

Try with the router's encryption disabled. Assuming success you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

It picks up the network excellent but when it trys to connect it some times says succesfull or unsuccessfull. When it says it succeds it stil doesnt connect to the router b/c i cant go to the routers options or other pc's. I've disabled firewalls. Im thinking the wireless card might not be compatible with the router but that is the last thing i want to hear. If you need more info just let me know. Thanks.

A:problems connecting wireless desktop pc to belkin g router

Hi,lamborn5
welcome to vist forums.
your belkin router is in 54g or 802.11g? is router equiped with MIMO?
you PC desktop or laptop?
most likly whats wrong is the area your computer is in.
eg:your router upstairs and your pc downstairs router have issues traveling vertical. Also this wireless card is it a BELKIN product? if not you may want to exchange it for a belkin product.the other options are to have a look at BELKIN USB wireless adabters which sit on your desk. and they recive much stronger signal.
check out Belkin : Home
this link will also explain what maybe wrong as you may have the wrong type of hardware for your home/office

Hi, I was wondering if someone could tell me how to connect a printer to a laptop over a network, without a desktop pc connected to the printer. This printer isn't a wireless printer, but i'm fairly sure that it is connect to the wireless modem. The laptop is an oldish dell latitude d505 running windows XP. The problem i'm having is that the printer used to be the desktop printer, but since the desktop is no longer there, I think its causing the issues between the printer and the laptop. If it is a very arduous process then I may just get a wireless printer. Thanks in advance for any of your help.

If this has already been covered in another post, i'm sorry, I didn't see it.

Ok, my current Linksys BEFSR41 ver. 3 Router uses the standard ethernet connection between each of the computers for internet access (4 computers using direction connection at my house). Right now the radio box, you could call it a modem but our isp calls them radio boxes, receives the internet and we have a cord going from that to our router. The 4 ethernet cords plug from the router into each of our computers. The reason I bring up the wireless internet and wireless routers is for the sole use of internet on my PSP.

Is there a way I can stay maintan my non-wireless setup but have a wireless router with actually computer connected just my psp? If you need more information please ask, also what is the cheapest wireless router out there, that anybody is aware of. Speed is no issue because I know I won't be pushing the bandwidth limits on a 45kb/s max download connection.

Hope someone can help. The main PC with the modem/router is downstairs. My son's PC is upstairs and connects to mine wirelessly. His xbox is also upstairs. What is the easiest way to connect to xbox live? He has a Network internet adaptor on his PC. I run Windows vista and he runs windows xp.
 

A:Connecting xbox live to wireless network

Are you sure his machine connects to yours and not the router? If this is an Ad-Hoc connection to your machine, I think I'd address that first.

First, let me say I'm not very adept at this so I may get the terminology wrong. I have a Dell Inspiron 600m laptop with an Intel Pro/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection. The laptop is running on Windows XP Professional 2002.I have a Linksys Wireless Broadband Router Model number WRT160N. The router and connection are fine as I can connect another laptop without any problems. When I try to connect with the Inspiron 600m I get a pop up saying "Windows cannot configure this wireless connection" Can someone please tell me what I need to do to get this to connect. Thanks a bunch.

A:Problem Connecting with a Wireless Network that I have always used in the past.

I assume you're on windows xp. Right click the wireless terminal icon on the bottom right, and click Open Network Connections. Right click the Wireless Network Connection and click Properties. Under "This connection uses the following items:" (scroll down if necessary) double click "Intenet Protocol". On the window that appears, make sure "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are selected. Click OK (maybe a few times) and try repair again. Good luck.

Hi Everyone,

I am attempting to setup an Ad Hoc Wireless Network between two Windows 7 computers. On my Desktop Computer I have created the actual network as per the screen shots below -



The end result is an Ad Hoc network available through my Desktop Computer -

However even though the network is seen as available from the laptop, when a connection is attempted there is an error -

A few additional points -
I have tried dhcp & manually setting the I.P. address on both computers (with the same result)
Both computers belong to the same Workgroup
Both have file sharing enabled
Both have Network Discovery enabled
I chose no security to rule out encryption

If anybody has any idea of what I am missing here can you please share?

Kind Regards

Davo
