Cannot Detect Wireless Connection


I have a wireless modem set up and other laptops in my house can get a signal but my own personal laptop cannot. The wireless network list on my computer shows that the network is detected and that i am connected. Despite this, the signal comes in and out and tends to be very weak. The signal on the bottom right shows full bars so the signal is supposedly very good but somehow i cannot get on the internet. I have tried multiple websites and the message that internet explorer cannot open the web page comes up.

Macbook Does Not Detect Wireless Network

Window 7 installed on macbook - does not detect any wireless network/connection at all only on windows os system side. I have installed windows 7 on my new macbook, so my macbook operate both on apple macos and windows os. However, my windows os side does not detect any wireless network at all. When i switch back to apple os, there is no problem connecting to the internet and there is no connection problem at all.

But for some reason, my windows 7 does not detect or show any available wireless network. I use linksys wrt-110, and i don't think it is my router problem because it works perfectly on apple macos system. Does anybody have any solution? I am not very tech-savvy, i.e. , I need step-by-step explanation as to how to tackle this.

Wireless Connection Lost

I have a wireless connection for the internet set-up to my neighbors house and although my pc says there's a good signal between us, i often lose my internet connection, especially when microsoft have downloaded an update. I am sure the fault is somewhere in my own pc. When it does happen, i have to use system restore every time to re-establish the internet link. The fault number which appears is: 80072ee7, i being a silver surfer have no idea what that means or what to do about it.

Wireless Connection Service Error

I am currently using a sony vaio laptop. When i use the web function, my wireless connects without any problem. However, when i load my computer i cannot seem to connect. The troubleshooter says 'windows can't communicate with the device or resource (primary dns server). Also, the ipv4 says 'internet', the ivp6 says 'no internet access'. I have tried following some of the other advice but the 'run' function will not allow me to run commands as the administrator, even though i am the only user on my laptop.

Vista And 7 Wireless Connection Problem

I am a customer in a bar that has a wireless access point. A new router was recently installed. I am running xp on my laptop. I have no problems connecting, but every person who comes in with a vista or 7 system gets limited connectivity or no connection at all. The router defaults to wpa/wpa2 - mixed mode. In my xp, i had to delete the old property for the old router and let the system create a new property for it. In my wireless networks connections, the property for the bar shows the setting as wpa2-psk as the network authentication, and aes as the data encryption. In the vista computers i have looked at, the settings that appear in the list are wpa2-personal and wpa2-e-something (can't recall the word).

In 7, i can't find this info at all. In vista and 7, the wireless networks tab does not show up in the wireless network connections properties. What do i need to do to correct these problems in vista and 7 so the other users here can connect to the new router?

Losing Wireless Network Connection

Running w7 home prem 32bit isp cable high speed, home network configuration. Service to cable modem to router. More often than not when i power on my wireless laptop i am not connected to my network. Windows shows networks are available, i see y network. And it shows good excellent signal levels, i run the windows diagnostics and it reads, power off router and and power back on and following this process the wireless latop gets connected to my network.

I have changed out the router, the issue continued. I have checked for updated network card driver, i have the latest available. Once connected i never loose the connection. And i would guess i have checked for firmware updates for router, none are available. I connect 3 out of 5 times when i power on the laptop. The network is wpa-psk with a security phrase set. Suggestions to resolve this issue?

Wireless Internet Connection Problems

I got a new sony vaio laptop for my birthday yesterday and i have spent all night and all of today trying to connect it to the wireless internet in my house. It has windows seven and my computer techonologically informed friend says that because my new laptop is with windows seven, but the router is hooked up through a vista computer, that it is not compatible and my laptop is not letting me connect to the wireless. When we tried to investigate the problem on my laptop, it says that it is connected to my netgear system, but the connection is not strong enough for me to actually use the internet.

 I did not have this problem with my previous windows xp acer laptop. It didn't have a problem connecting and allowing me access to the router. My friend believes this is a fault with windows seven, and so i have turned to this site for help. We have investigated as many possibilities as we could but could not resolve the situation. Is there something wrong with my computer? Or is this a common problem that is easily fixed?

Wireless Connection Drops After Pc Reboot

I have recently upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 and im using a hp pavilion machine. After i reboot the machine after it has been turned off for more than a few hours i can not get it to connect to my router. I have to restart the router twice and keep restarting the pc and doing a new wireless connection. I believe i have the latest drivers as the network adapter driver was downloaded from windows update. I have contacted netgear who make the router and they say ts fine as my iphone and xbox connect to it without the reboot. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Using Both Wired And Wireless Connection - 1 For Internet 1 For Printer

Using both a wired connection and wireless connection - one for internet access, one for printer access. We have a business dsl account, where we get 5 static ip addresses. We use the dsl router to connect 2 computers, a nas, and another wireless router, to provide access to others.

We have a networkable hp officejet 8500 a909g, but no longer have any more available ports to add it to the network. What i contemplated doing was hard-wiring the printer to the wireless router, then using the wireless card on my laptop, and a wireless adapter on the desktop (these are the 2 computers hard-wired to the dsl router) to connect to the wireless router, allowing us to see the printer and use it.

However, whenever i do this, the wireless connections seem to take precedence over the wired connections, which sort of negates the fact that they are wired in the first place. Is there a way to give the wired connection precedence, and then using the wireless only when we need to print? And does the computer being connected to two networks at one cause any problems?

Wireless Connection Key Case Issue

I installed windows 7 on my hp tc4400. Im using wireless network. At home my wep key (64-bit) is all digits so it's no problem. At work, the wireless key (128-bit) combines bot digits and lower case characters. I found out that the wireless management automatically converts the lower-case alphabets into upper-case. That un-wanted conversion causing the problem because i cannot connect to network at work. How can i fix it?

A couple of days ago i bought a wireless system for my system(runs on windows 7 enterprise)since the very much beginning i actually have problems with it. On a windows xp computer connecting to the router goes flawlessly but with this pc it's a serious. When i start up the computer it starts with saying it can't connect because the information on the computer did not match with the router. It keeps on trying to connect but doesn't work.

When i let it detect it automatically it says it's wep protected(on windows xp it says it correctly)the icon in the right bottom corner constantly is showing a red cross that it's not connected(i can use internet though) the adapter is a sitecom wireless n-network-pci-card wl-181i downloaded the latest drivers and even the utility(but that's a program) does anybody know a solution?

D-link Dwa-130 Usb Wireless Network Connection Problem

My nic keeps loosing connection, i get a message saying default gateway not found and then i unplug the nic and plug it back in and it works for 5-10 mins then looses connection again, although my other pc keeps it's connection. I'm running windows7 64 bit. I've been told to uninstall the drivers that came with the nic and let windows install it's own drivers, does anyone know where i can find the windows drivers on the ms site?

Am i able to download the drivers then uninstall the d-link drivers and then install the windows drivers rather than connecting the pc hardwired to the router, this means i'll have to unplug the pc and move it to another location to wire it to the router which i don't really want to do.

Win7 Will Not Detect Second Monitor

I have a pc running windows 7 professional and windows vista ultimate with a dual boot setup. I have two screens pluged into an nvidia gts 8800 video card. The first screen is an hp 22" lcd which is plugged directly into one of the two dvi outputs on the video card. The second screen is a sharp 52", 1080p hdtv which is plugged into the second dvi port on the video card via an hdmi cable plugged into a hdmi to dvi adapter.

Both monitors work perfectly when i boot to windows vista but when i boot to windows 7 the 52" screen is not recognized at all. If i switch the cords plugged into the video card the 52" will work and the 22" will not be detected.

Win7 Does Not Detect External Monitor

I have just upgraded to win7 home premium 32 on a sony vaio laptop. Previously i was running vista business. I was happily using an lg1512s monitor plugged through the vaio docking station.
Post the win 7 install, my laptop does not recognize the external monitor. I have gone on to the control panel all control panel items-display-screen resolution and the multiple screen dialogue does not appear.
 
I have with no success:

· Clicked detect¯ in the control panelall control panel itemsdisplayscreen resolution
· Clicked the f7 monitor on/off button.
· Plugged the monitor directly into the vaio (i.e. Not through the docking station)
· Used windows-x and tried to use the mobility centre to connect the external monitor.

Meanwhile i have plugged the monitor into another laptop i use that is running vista home and the monitor lights up so i know the monitor and the cables are ok. The problem is that win7 is not seeing the external monitor. Any ideas?

Applications Cannot Detect Dvd Drive

I am having trouble with my cdvd burner, as no applications on my computer recognize the drive at all. The hardware was working fine and was displayed under a list of burners in applications like cyberlink dvd, nero, windows iso burner, windows media player; now it is not displayed at all. I constantly get error messages that "no burners were detected" or to "connect a burner and restart the [windows media] player. " The drive does however appear in windows explorer and i am able to play dvd's from it (although i believe these are stored in a temporary cache).

I have already attempted to reinstall the driver from "device manager dvd/cd-rom drives hp dvd rw ad-7581s ata device" but this had failed. I have also run the online "playing and burning cds dvds and bds" troubleshooted from microsoft; it finds no problems, probably since it did not actually burn any data to test it. I've also downloaded the mats_run. Dvd.exe which supposedly fixes the problem automatically, this just downloaded massive amounts of data and went to the above troubleshooter. I am not able to burn dvds and no applications even detect i can.

System Wont Detect Cds

After performing a clean install of windows 7 pro my computer wont detect music cds. It will play movies with its corresponding audio. But it wont play regular music cds originals, burned or from any file extension of music cds it wont just detect that the cd is loaded in the cd rom tray.

I already tried  windows trouble shouting and nothing. Checked file extension association and everything appears to be in order. I also ran drm. Also perform cd, dvd region check. Lastly i also perform a system check from the windows command prompt and found nothing either.

Anybody have any other ideas?
