Wireless Capability Turned Off


I was trying to connect to my work's wireless network which has some security i have to get to. I was trying to speed it up by checking the properties of that connection (right-click on the network name, clicked status). There was a button with the administrator logo on it labeled disable, and i accidentally clicked it. I was able to turn the wireless adapter on again, but no networks show up (there were at least five before).

When i hover over the icon in the system tray, it says no connections are available. When i troubleshoot, the only error it has is that it says wireless capability turned off and i can't find where to turn it back on. I'm using an asus notebook with windows 7 home premium installed.

No Email Capability With Win 7

I have a e-mail account with verizon.net but no e-mail capability with windows 7. Do i have to create another e-mail account with hotmail to use microsoft live. I would prefer not and simply have my verizon account spill over into my microsoft live account to use on my computer. I am presently signed up with live but do not have a inbox. Screen keeps coming up for me to give them my hotmail account? Which i do not have.

Sound Turned Off Upon Restart

Whenever i restart windows 7 (ultimate), the volume settings of windows 7 have been turned completely off. Therefore, every time i restart windows 7, i have to go down to the lower right-hand corner of the screen (to the volume icon) and turn on the volume once again. This happens every time i restart windows 7. What might be going on? I'm running the latest version of avg antivirus, by the way, and there are no viruses showing up on my system.

System Restore Has Been Turned Off By Administrator

System restore has been turned off by your system administrator. I thought my problem was a easy one but not so. I am logged in as administrator windows 7 ultimate, i went to restore my system files and turned them off by mistake, so that i thought was no problem, i did know that it deletes all system restore files, so off i go again to turn them back on and guess what, it says the administrator had to be informed as they turned them off, after trying many ways of doing this, i resorted to no protection on my uac, this did not help, tried a new uac that did not help either, so now i am on my hands and knees hoping that someone out there can help, after such a simple mistake which i was allowed to do because i was administrator, i have gone to not even being able to system restore back on without contacting my administrator!

Bsod From Wakeup When Wifi Turned Off

I've been getting the bsod other people have, but mine has a definite cause. It will only happen on wake-up from sleep/hibernate (not sure about power-up) when the wifi is turned off. I have a laptop, so there's a little button you can slide left or right to turn the wifi on or off. If the wifi is turned off, but i manage to switch it on before the login screen comes up, i'm ok. But if i forget or i'm too late turning it on, the bsod appears.

I have an hp pavilion dv2610us with windows 7 pro x64. I ran the 64 bit version of the release candidate, which had the exact same problem. I thought it would get fixed with the final version, but i guess not. Is the fix for this a certain wifi driver? If so, anyone know which one?

Cannot Log Into Xp Mode With Integration Turned On

I am using windows 7 enterprise and have downloaded and installed windows virtual pc and xp mode. I used the standard username of xpmuser and a password. Successfully linked to my company shared drives and installed the applications that need to run in xp mode. Fter a reboot of the main pc i can no longer log into xp mode with the hard drive integration turned on. With integration turned on, when i type in the xpmuser password i get a message "the local policy of this system does not allow you to logon interactively". I'm actually logging in twice. As the virtual machine starts, i enter the xpmuser name and password at a 'security' screen, then the xp session starts, and i get the error message above. Since the vm isn't part of a 'real' domain, i can't use my windows logon id, i am using the xmpuser name and password. I've removed and reinstalled virtual pc and xp mode and get back to this same problem. I get everything installed, but when the hardware is rebooted, i can no longer log in to xp mode.

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.

Wireless Mouse

I am having trouble with my recently purchased 'targus' wireless mouse. It was fine till now, but all of a sudden i heard a beep from my laptop (similar one which comes when you plug/unplug something to a usb drive) and it just doesn't work anymore! No lights on the usb receiver which comes along with the mouse anymore!I remember the following things:1. I had installed updates from windows yesterday (but after that as well for couple of hours today it was fine)2. I got an alert for battery level and soon after i plugged in the power source i got the beep and mouse went dead in some moments. These may be irrelevant, but could anyone please help?

Wireless Printing

I have a new hp laptop connected to an hp ps1315 printer and another new hp laptop (both with windows 7) connected through a wireless network. I have been able to print wirelessly for a couple of months, but all of a sudden, the printer shows "offline" on the wireless laptop, but "online" on the connected laptop. Restarting everything seemed to work the first time this occurred, but will not work now. Is there a way to set the wireless laptop to "printer online"?

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?

Linksys Wireless Wusb54g V.4

I have windows 7 x64 and according to the compatibility chart, this device is "compatible" logo and all. Unfortunately i live in the real world, and this device is not compatible. I have been using the rt2500usb. Inf/.sys files for my device but it is a downward spiral. The device will work for a while (day or so) in usb port a, then starts disconnecting/reconnecting randomly.

Later it will start dc/rc hourly, then about 10 mins, then it gets to the point where all i hear is the dc/rc dings as spam from my pc. This device also effects other devices that are on usb the same way. In other words port b will do the dc/rc which is my external hdd instead of my wireless card. I'm really not looking forward to buying yet another card for this pc, as this one is not returnable.

Where it does work: ubuntu 9. 10 runs this device as a rt2750 instead of the rt2500 i currently have drivers for. Windows 7 x86 runs this device without fail.

Wireless Mouse Does Not Work

I have a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard 4000 and a microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000. All of a sudden the mouse stopped working. I can see the cursor arrow on the screen but my mouse wont move it. My operating system is vista 64-bit. I have gone through all the diagnostic steps to no avail: replaced the batteries, downloaded the latest software from microsoft, changed usb ports, tried another computer and checked my device manager. The device manager tells me the mouse is working properly. It may be that the mouse is dead but i though before the burial that i would take a chance to see if anyone out there had a similar problem but solved it.

Wireless Printer Not Connecting

I have installed a wireless printer on my computer. I am able to connect the usb cord from my printer to my computer, and print just fine, but when i try to print wirelessly, my computer pops up a message saying that the communication could not be accessed. It gives suggestions on how to fix the problem, which i have done all of except for 1. It says to check the firewall to see if it allows the computer to read the printer. But i don't know how to find the printer option in my firewall section. How do i get my wireless to work on my computer?

Wireless Transceiver V2.0 Driver

I run microsoft windows 7 64bit, i bought the microsoft wireless desktop 6000, the cd says that it will not install because it's not compatible to windows 7, microsoft.com/hardware provides intellitype and intellipoint for windows 7. I downloaded both and installed them. I inserted the transceiver to the usb port and i have automatic search for drivers turned on. Windows 7 cannot find a driver for the transceiver and neither can the automate online search.

Additional information. It's a v2 and windows 7 detects it as a v1. I tried to uninstall with driver and update again but it is still detected as a v1. If anyone could even tell me where to get the v2 driver i'd be happy because i could do the rest from there.

My question: where the bloody is microsoft hiding the driver for this thing?

Trouble Seeing Particular Wireless Network

I upgraded an hp laptop from vista to windows 7. Now it will not "see" a wireless router in a government building but will see other routers and networks. I changed routers (apple to linksys dual band) and exactly the same thing, even changing from 2. 4 ghz to 5. 0 ghz because of possible cordless phone interference. Ll other portable computers can see the network but not this hp. And this hp sees other networks in the building. I upgraded the wireless adapter drive from broadcom but no change.

Totally perflexing to me. - This is a public forum so never post private information such as email or phone numbers!Ideas:programs you are having problems with error messages recent changes you made to your computer what you have already tried to fix the problem?

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.

Connecting To Home Wireless

I'll try to describe this as simply as possible. I cannot connect to my home's wireless. I can connect to my neighbors (not password protected) and my church's (password protected) networks, and begin to connect to my neighbors password protected wireless networks. My home's internet is up and running; there are multiple machines using it right now, including 3 laptops, a computer and a ps3. As i am running windows 7 on my macbook pro through bootcamp (3. 1), i can even boot into mac osx and i will be connected. The problem is this operating system, which i installed yesterday.

I think i messed up when i chose "public" network instead of "home" or "private" network during the installation. I think i've tried everything and any help is greatly appreciated. The message i get when i try to connect is essentially "windows was unable to connect to this network" note that this does happen with a few other networks around the area.
