Laptop Does Not Connect To Printer Connected To Wireless Router

Windows 7 wireless laptop does not connect to printer connected to netgear wireless router the printer must be restarted every time i want to print from the wireless windows 7 laptop (through the use of the printer on/off switch. ) The hp 2820 mfp printer has a network card and is connected to the netgear dgn2000 router. I have used the built-in troubleshooting devices from the windows control panel but the problem continues. (Note the laptop was upgraded from vista and the printer worked ok. Also the router was upgraded from an old 2-wire router that died. So, unfortunately i have two variables).

Unable To Connect To Wireless Router

I just purchased an hp mini with w 7 starter two months ago. Until yesterday i have been able to connect to my actiontec m1424wr router. After running win network diagnostics it says there is a "problem with the driver for the wireless network adapter". I can't get online to help and support for further diagnostics because i can't connect to the internet(catch 22). The taskbar shows my router is available with "limited access". I also have a dell laptop w/ xp and have never had a problem connecting. I have performed some of the ideas from one of the threads on this forum including the shutdown of the netbook and router and then powering them back up. I am not real tech savvy but really need some help with this.

D-link Wbr-2310 Wireless Will Not Connect

I have a new sony vaio with windows 7 installed. It will not connect with my home network. I can connect wireless to other networks (i've tried at wifi hotspots in coffee shops and at my work). I have checked that my router (d-link model wbr-2310) is compatible with windows 7 on the companies website and it says it is already compatible. I have updated both the atheros wireless network adapter and the ms virtual wifi miniport adapter. Another help forum suggested disabling the ms virtual miniport adapter, which i tried, and this does not work.

Wireless Network Automatic Connect But Does Not Stick

Windows 7 home premium (x86) user is running as administrator. Mcafee a/v corporate is installed.
In wireless properties, connection tab, the top box is checked (connect automatically when this network is in range) and the box to "connect even if this network is not broadcasting its name (ssi)" also is checked. I have checked these boxes manually and also had the network "troubleshooter" fix the problem of not automatically connecting. As soon as the top box is checked and ok is clicked, the connection to the wireless network is made. However, on the next reboot, both boxes are unchecked and the user must connect to the network manually. What is unchecking the boxes and how can i stop this from happening?

User Cannot Connect To Wireless Network But Admin Can

I'm running windows 7 home premium. When i logon as an administrator, every-thing's fine - connects to wireless network, internet, all's well. But when i logon as a regular user, it is unable to connect to the wireless network. (When i run the networking troubleshooter - again, as regular user - it complains that no ethernet cable is attached. Seems way off base for a wireless issue. ) Do you know how to fix this problem (other than making the user an administrator, which i don't want to do)?

Sharing Wireless Network Between Win 7, Xp, Wireless Printer

I had no trouble sharing my wireless network when the desktop was xp and the laptop was xp. Since replacing the desktop with a new windows 7 unit, i cannot manage to set up a network. I just purchased a new wireless printer, and i cannot set it up wirelessly either. I can network the printer to work with the win7 desktop if i connect the printer to my router with a ethernet cable. My router sees all 3 devices and i can ping the printer and the laptop from the desktop. The desktop is connected to the router via ethernet cable.

Belkin F5d8053 N Usb Wireless Adapter Cannot Connect

It would seem that plenty of people on the forums have had similar problems to mine but no real solutions are forthcoming, so i thought i may as well put my problem up in case the specifics make it easily solvable. Bear with me cos i've tried a lot of things and i don't want to leave anything out incase it's useful. Ok, i got a new laptop recently and wanted to transfer my music collection from my desktop to the laptop.

At this time both machines were connecting to the network properly, i was using a belkin usb g wireless adapter and windows 7 ultimate x64 in the desktop, and the inbuilt wireless with windows 7 home premium x64 on the laptop. I tried to do this through homegroups and for some reason the laptop couldn't join or even see the homegroup, so i ended up connecting the hard drive from the laptop directly to the desktop via sata cable. When i put the hard drives back the way they were originally after the transfer was complete, the wireless on my desktop had stopped working.

In the adapter settings panel, the wireless connection was set to disabled and whenever i tried to enable it, a box came up saying "enabling" followed by "enabled" but the main icon in the panel would still say disabled and the network wizard would say "not connected". To eliminate hardware malfunction as a cause, i tried disabling the integrated wireless on the laptop and using the usb adapter from the desktop to connect to the internet. This worked better than it ever had in the desktop. I tried updating the drivers in various compatibility modes and removing every trace of belkin software from the computer to start again, but to no avail. In the end i bought a new usb adapter, the 802. 11n adapter in the subject line (i needed an upgrade anyway as the router is two floors below the computer).

This worked better in the desktop, allowing the wireless connection to enable, but still not seeing any wireless networks in the area (of which there are around 6). After much uninstalling, reinstalling, updating, rolling back, shouting and pleading, the adapter finally started picking up the wireless networks for the area, including mine. Unfortunately that is all it would do - it refused to connect. All the while, the laptop has been able to make a strong connection with the router. I have tried going into the routers firmware from the desktop but inexplicably while the networking wizard can see the wireless network, the computer cannot get through to the router.

A wired connection works, however having the router and computer in the same room permanently is impossible due to the position of the cable entry point in my house. Removing the router security does not work. Resetting the router and rebuilding the network connection does not work. Threats do not work. I was hoping that somebody would have a suggestion as to why this is happening and what can be done.

Connect Xbox 360 To Laptop Running Usb Wireless Broadband Stick

Can i connect my xbox 360 to my laptop running usb wireless broadband stick and play on xbox live? I was wondering if it is at all possible to connect an xbox360 direct to a laptop that uses a telstra 21 wireless broadband usb stick to connect to internet.

I really like xbox and games and i find it hard to believe that in this day and age with 90% of the world using laptops that microsoft didn't create xbox with the capacity to connect through a laptop.
I have windows vista home premium on my toshiba laptop.

Network Printer Cannot Connect

Its for my homegroup network with both computers running windows 7 (pc is on 64bit and laptop is on 32bot). I can print from the pc where the printer (epson) is connected via usb but i can't print from my laptop through the network. The homegroup works fine enough, i can access files through it. I thought originally it was pharos that was upsetting the computer (installed very very poorly and finally days later managed to get every sign of it off the laptop) - but now i get the printer being found but it won't connect!

I've been though a couple of other threads but none of it seems to work. The file and printer sharing has always been connected (as my brother from his xp computer can print to my printer) and the firewall lets it through. Is there any other way? The permissions are set to print for everyone so its not that either. Does anyone know how i can get my laptop access to print?

Cannot Connect To Network Folder Or Printer After Update

Suddenly after february update i cannot access the network folders, our network printers with my windows 7 machine and the logon script is not running because its on a shared folder. After a late night trying different solutions i did a system restore to a date before the update and it work directly after reboot.

Some time later the updates is reinstalled and the problems is back. When i try to connect to a computer or server in the network by typing computername or ipadress in file explorer i get the error 0x0004005 and also all my network printers are offline.

Internet access and all other access is possible, i can connect to other computers with remote desktop and from them connect to shared folders on my local win 7 pc. What the heck has happened? I also tested all the network trouble shooting guides but they find nothing.

Unable To Connect To Print From Network Printer

After upgrading to windows 7, unable to connect to homegroup & not able to print from network printer. Windows 7 upgrade from vista loses network connectivity to windows xp, and mac osx computers and can't connect wireless network printer. Hi, i have recently upgraded my laptop from windows vista to windows 7. While working in vista i had access via a network named mshome to our other windows xp laptops and 2 macs running osx as well as our network laser printer (lexmark c530dn).

Now my laptop can't see the other laptops or macs but can still print to our network printer, and obviously access the internet. I'm guessing that i'm going to have to setup a new network in order to see our other machines. In addition, i have recently purchased a wireless multifunction inkjet printer (lexmark s400 series). The xp laptops and osx machines can print etc. While my windows 7 laptop won't.

The software is installed, latest drivers downloaded, and the printer status is ready but it won't even print a test page. If anyone could give me some advice about the best way to set up a new workgroup (or reconnect to our old one) and get my new printer working i would be really grateful. As you can imagine, i'm now more than a little frustrated with it.

Cannot Connect Vista Network Printer On Win 7

I have a vista home premium network (32 bit) with 3 laptops and a desktop that has a canon mp520 printer attached to it. This is a networked printer and works fine with all networked pcs.
I recently upgraded one of the laptops to windows 7 (32) bit and could no longer print from this laptop. When i try to add the canon mp520 network printer i can see it in the select printer dialogue, however when i select it i receive an error "operation failed with error 0x00000002

The other pcs still work fine when printing to the network printer.

I also tested the printer locally on the windows 7 laptop and it works fine as a local printer.
The computer name where the printer is attached locally is called 'family-pc" and the printer name is "canon7".

I tried to define the network printer on the laptop as a local printer by defining a new local port for it and entering the printer network address, "family-pccanon7" however i receive an "access is denied" error.

I have disabled the public, domain and private firewalls on teh windows 7 laptop as well and this has not allowed me to attach a network printer either. I have also created a new user on the laptop with the same results.

Can't Connect To Printer From List Of Printers Available

Windows can't connect to a printer i selected from a list of printers available. How do i get it to connect? We have two new computers, vista ultimate and windows 7 pro. (64bit) machines that join a domain when they log in. The first machine (vista) has a new usb printer installed and shared while logged in as domain admin. For the shared drivers it has 64 bit drivers (also asked to install x86 drivers if i select that driver type, but since only 64 bit machines will use this printer i left it unchecked).

On the second machine (logged in as domain admin), i add the printer (find printer by name or tcp/ip address: browse for printer - selected it from the list). It comes back with a message "couldn't connect to the printer. Check the name and try again. I tried to add it using the the select shared printer by name: ip address printer name, but i get the same message.

I am able to connect the second computer (windows 7) to a network printer (with internal nic) connected directly to the network but these other printers belong to other departments. How do i get computer 2 (7) to print to computer 1 (vista).
