Network Issue - Security Type Is Not Same As Router


I am running windows 7, just did an update and one of them was for the wireless (n) card. I can no longer connect to the internet. It prompts me that my security type is not the same as the router. I have the router set on wpa-psk. My computer no longer has that as a choice, it has wpa personal, wpa2 personal, wpa enterprise, and wpa2 enterprise. Any ideas?

Setting Up Security To Protect Router

I set up a network and installed a router for wireless access to the net. I did not set up the security protection on the router at that time. Am trying to do so now but keep running into road block. I followed the directions  for security set up in the "setting up a wireless network. When i click on the "set up a new network" and click next i get a window that has two (2) messages.

"Choose the wireless router or access point you want to configure" and "it might take up to 90 seconds for unconfirmed devices on your computer to appear". Under the second message is a blank box. Nothing ever appears and the only options i am left with is cancel or next selection is not activated. Can someone help on where to go from here. The router manufacturer has provided ip address and password which i don't know what to do with.

Wireless Router, One Pc Will Not Network

I have new 4 hp desktops set up on a wireless network thru a westfall wireless router that have been in use for several months without using any of the windows 7 network - home/work group capabilities. I was asked to connect a hp wireless printer through the same router so all four pcs could print to the one printer. The printer set up was easy. However, all but one pc is able to network. I can map the other pcs and printer.

I can access the printer webpage and change printer preferences but i can not use the printer. When i am in the network settings, the full network map setting shows the other pcs and printer but when asked to show devices connected to the network it shows zero items. I have checked all firewall, internet and file sharing settings on all four pcs and they are the same. This is my first experience using windows 7. Is there another feature that would block sharing or networking access?

Network Wireless Router Problem

I am using a desktop and a laptop with windows 7 and i have a wireless router which had been running without problem. I tried to set up homegroups, so i could share the printer. It wouldn't allow that, saying that there was a problem with the network, but no hints on what the problem is. At some point windows 7 took over my router setup and made a network. I can't seem to control the network or make changes to it, and now the laptop won't connect to the network, because i don't know a password that was assigned at some point. How do i kill, revise, or control the network? The available menu's don't seem to address this.

Setting Wireless Router Security Setting Have Changed

I have two selections possible. 'set up a new connection or network' wizard, or 'connect to a network' (manually) in windows 7. I know how to install hardware but my problem is, the security setting have been changed, and these changes i am trying to make in the configuration are not possible. The different permutations on offer do not provide the correct selection for me. e.g. I want to key in wpa + wpa2 i can only have one of them. Authentication and data encryption have same problem. You cannot key in the info manually.

Network Location Type Is Public

I have windows 7 ultimate on my pc ( upgraded from vista ultimate however when trying to see other pc on my network i get the message saying that the network location is public and to change it to home or work in network and sharing centre when i look at this area its set as home my other pc also has windows 7 ultimate but that gives a different message that n error happened during the mapping process.

So much for windows 7 making it easier to connect to other pc's on my network.

Trouble Setting Up A Home Network (non-internet Type)

I am trying to set up a home network (non-internet type). It needs to work like a cleint type as my laptop is the main and the other three can connect to it to do work through the same program. I followed all the instructions on how to set up homegroup and made sure everyone has same passwords, and settings and all that and i am still having trouble getting all computers to connect correctly everytime we log on. I have done all trouble shooting and they cannot find out what the problem is. It makes it very frustrating when my children have to wait a half an hour or so just so i can try and get everyone connected right. Does anyone have any solutions? Or is ther a way that i can make the network work without a homegroup?

Unidentified Network Using Wpa Security

With security disabled, or when using wep encryption, laptop will connect to internet using wifi. No issues ever. Change security to wpa/wpa2, it will connect for a day or so. It will not reconnect after restarting it from being off, or waking it from sleep mode. The router's security log shows a successful login from the laptop, but the laptop says "identifying network" for a minute or so, & then flags it as a "public network" with no internet access. Router is belkin "surf" n. Laptop os is windows 7if i change the ssid & password (laptop sees a new network) & use the "push button configuration (pbc) method", sometimes it will work, until it goes to sleep etc.

Windows Security Versus Norton Security

I have just taken for granted that i need a separate security company, because every time i purchase a computer, "norton" came with the included software. My question is; is windows defender and ms security sufficient security for a home computer?

Ip Address Changes On Router Reboot

Running windows 7 cabled to wireless router. Occasionally broadband "drops out" and when rebooting router ip address for wireless printer (epson stylus office tx610fw) changes form 10. 1. 1. 2   to 10. 1. 1. Something depending on how many laptops are connected. As a result i have to go into control panel, hardware & sound select the printer then via 'settings' select the printer and add it manually with new ip address. Obviously irritating as other family members, despite printed instructions, cannot manage it. Please, is there anyway to 'lock' the ip address so it doesn't change?

Netgear Wireless Router Problem

I recently upgraded my hp desktop computer from windows xp to windows 7. For the past 4 years my access of my desktop and my wife'slaptop computer is as follows: the internet cable is hooked to a "netgear wireless-n wnr1000 v2" which is hooked to a arris model tm02g modem, which is then hooked to my hp desktop computer. With windows xp both my my desktop and my wife's laptop could receive the internet. Now my wife's can receive the internet with this arrangement but my desktop cannot. When i connect the internet cable directly to the arris modem-thus eliminating the natgear wireless router-i can receive the internet on my desktop but my wife cannot on her laptop. Sometimes i receive a message that there is an additional computer with the same address as mine on the network.

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.

Internet Connection Sharing Using 3g Usb Router

I have three machines, two running win 7 and one xp machine. My internet connection is via a 3g usb connection on my main machine running win 7. I recently purchased a d-linkdap-1160 wireless router so that i can share the internet connection. It seems win 7 cannot or will not share the 3g connection when using the outer. If i set up an ad-hoc wireless network and exclude the router then ics works with no problem.

As soon as i try to set ics and use the router then everything falls over and i lose the internet and the wireless network. If the 3g connection is installed on the xp machine and shared using ics then i have no problems. Do the same thing on win 7 and it will not work. My local techie suggests setting up a proxy server on win 7 main machine and letting that handle the internet sharing. Any other ideas?

Disk Attached To Router Runs Slow

The issue i am having is with a router where an external disk is attached so that it is functioning as a nas. On my xp machine i experienced that the nas drive ran very slow and i found out that i had to install the net bios protocol which made it run smoothly. Now i've started to run windows 7 and the connection from windows 7 to the nas is again very slow (xp -> nas = still running fine).
I've tried to find the netbios protocol in windows 7 but no luck, so i have instead enabled the netbios over tcp/ip. Any ideas on how to make my "nas" run fast with windows 7?

Can I Filter A Library By File Type?

I create some various types of content like newsletters, videos, website work, and i store all the files from each project together, sorted into folders by client and then project name. So you can see that while my pictures library may be a great way to organze my personal photos, i don't put any image files associated with a project into my pictures folder, right?

Well i don't really have personal pictures on this machine, so it would still be nice to just see all my picture files from all projects. I figured i might add my 'projects' folder to be one of the folders that gets aggregated into the pictures library. But when i do, everything from my projects shows up in the pictures library. How can i set the pictures 'virtual folder' to only show files of an image type, like only png, svg, gif, jpg, and stuff like that?

I seem to remember that libraries are based on "longhorn's" search folders, so how do i make it happen?

It also says "3 days until automatic activation". It's an office computer so i'll get in trouble if this has a problem.

Clear Type Text Option

When setting up clear type text, the application will not save settings. My words are extremely blurry when i have the text size set at 100% and can only view text with the size set at 115% or higher. Changing the resolution only makes it worse. (I have computer set to recommended resolution status. )  Any idea on how i can get clear type to save my preferred settings?  Actually, clear type worked during initial set up but after recent windows updates clear type hasn't worked properly.

Program Cannot Be Run Because Of The Internet Connection Type

"program cannot be run because of the internet connection type" or "connect to the internet or contact your network administrator" i am having this issue with internet explorer whereby there must be a problem with the connection type settings because everytime i attempt to download either an application such as java or another search engine such as google chrome and even anti-virus such as symantec.

I am allowed to download the program but when i go to run the program i get different error messages for each application but all saying the same thing e.g. There is a problem with the internet connectivity-and this blocks the applications from running-another thing that happens is that when i get to an internet "hot-spot" where the browser is supposed to redirect to the login page of that network my internet explorer is not doing that.

Instead, it brings me to my home page and does not allow the network access page to be displayed. It also happens with skype, i downloaded it but when i went to run it, it sates: "please connect to the internet" when i am actually online on other tabs. Your help would be really appreciated.

Ps: i have tried reseting the setting for internet explorer from the advanced tab on the "internet options" window. I have also contacted my school's it center and they say that their connection is not limited in anyway (it also happens at home where i administer my network). I wanted to uninstall ie but could not find it on the "remove programs" list. Again, i have internet access but i am just not allowed to run applications and sometimes videos.

Search Java File Type Contents

I am having problems searching my . Java files. I go to the folder the file it is in, type a keyword in the search box, like "system", and it shows there are no files that match my search. When i change the extension to .txt, it finds my files. I have checked the advanced options in index options and the java extension is listed there as checked to be indexed for searching contents and file attributes. I have also checked that my individual file properties are set to allow for indexing of file properties and contents. Is this just a bug or am i missing something? If anyone could help me with this let me know.
