Repair Wireless Network Connection

Whenever i click on the repair button this is what is being returned:

"Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action can not be completed:

Disabling the wireless network adapter

Make sure your network adapter is properly installed. "

Whenever i try to disable the wireless network connection this is what is being returned:

"It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection may be using one or more protocols that do not support plug-and-play, or it may have been initiated by another user or the system account. "

Is there a fix to this problem? I was able to repair my connection untill just recently.

Setup Wireless Network From Wireless Connection

Can i set up a wireless network from a wireless connection? To detail it a little moe, im connected to my parents wireless network which is encrypted with wpa security. While i was away at college, i bought my own router to use wep encryption so that i could play on my ds while taking my laptop about, but now i can no longer play on my ds. Is there a way i could use the connection im using atm and kind of use my laptop as a gateway of sorts to connect my own router but instead wep. If that makes any sense.

Ethernet Network Connection Faster Or A Wireless

I am going to be changing my network at home soon because at the moment i have a 10/100 connecting my two pcs together. I have recently purchased a laptop which i want to connect wirelessly to the network and i am also beginning to start transferring large files across my network so want to upgrade the speed of the current connection. I was wondering is a gigabit ethernet network connection faster or a wireless one faster? I have always thought the gigabit ethernet connection is, but i don't actually know all that much about wireless networking. What i have been looking around for is a wireless router which is compliant with either 802. 1b or 802. 1g standards, as those are the ones my laptop supports. Although i think 802. 1g is faster so i would prefer that and have been looking for that mainly. Also the router i have been looking for would need to be a cable router so i can connect my modem to it via ethernet. So far though i have been unable to find all of this built into one device. I have managed to find a wireless cable router with a 10/100 switch, but never with a 10/100/1000 switch. I would also like to find one with a built in usb print server, but as i can't even find a wireless one which has a 10/100/1000 switch built in i don't think there is much hope of that happening. One thing i want to know, is what i am looking for even available?

If this isn't available all in one, what is the best way of going around this? Is it best to buy a gigabit router then have a wireless access point connect to it and a print server also connecting to it?

To summaries what i am looking for; it's a wireless 802. 1g or 802. 1b router (would like 802. 1g as i think it's faster) with a gigabit switch and a printer server all built into one device, or if it's not possible the best way around it.

Wireless Network Lose Its Internet Connection

Okay so we run a wireless network at home. We have sbc dsl and use the 2 wire router with 802. 11b wireless to 2 computers while the main computer is connected via the ethernet connection to the router itself. The problem is one of the computers (my brother's) will lose its internet connection after alot of bandwidth is used in a short amount of time. But the network connection remains. If you download several things at once, play a game online, or do anything requiring extensive bandwidth usage it will lose the internet. Its as if the router quits sending the internet to the computer although it still says "excellent connection" on the wireless utility program. Even after a fresh reformat the problem persists. I have no issues with either of the other computers in my house hold. Any suggestions?

Slow Connection Speed With Wireless Network

Okay so i have a brand new dell laptop with the nicest wireless-n capable card you can buy and with all of the drivers up to date, i also have a netgear wireless-n capable router with all of its firmware up to date. Here is the problem, i can only get a max of 58 mbps, even though i have the router set to "up to 300 mbps" and i am close to the router with no interference. I have high speed cable internet from cox. When i check the status of my network, it only goes to 58 mbsp max, but sits around 26mbps and fluctuates a good amount in between.

Network address problem connecting new laptop to existing wireless network. Using a netgear dg834g router as the access point for 2 different pc's, which are not networked with each other, but both connect fine to the wireless network. Just got a new inspiron 6000.

I know it should be giving me an ip of or something, i just can't figure out why it doesn't.

Issue With Dhcp Connection Wireless Connection Drop

I don't know why i keep getting this error message in the log for dhcp , it annoys a lot as it disconnects the wifi then reconnects and continues to do so for a few minutes. The ip address lease 192. 168. 1. 7 for the network card with network address 0xxxxxxxxxxxxx has been denied by the dhcp server 0. 0. 0. 0 (the dhcp server sent a dhcpnack message). I know there is an issue as the dhcp server should be 192. 168. 1. 1, it goes normal as in the log it shows that it gets the i. P from the correct dhcp but when the error happens it shows the dhcp server as to 0. 0. 0. 0. My wireless card is an atheros ar9285, my pc is a hp pavillion dv 7-3162nr laptop

Connecting Two Wireless Routers As One Wireless Network

How can i connect two wireless routers to function together as one wireless network? Currently i have a wireless bell dsl router (i don't remember the actual router model, but i know it is very limited as to what it could do). This router is connected to the internet and currently all my computers connect wirelessly to this router's wifi network (let's call it network a) to access the internet. I am currently repairing a desktop which does not have wireless functionality. I don't want to purchase a wireless adaptor for this computer or move it closer to the router, one of those will be my last resort. I do have a linksys wrt150-n wireless router that i don't use anymore. That router by default creates it's own wireless network called "linksys". Is there some way to link or bridge the two wireless networks together so that any computer that i connect to the linksys router via ethernet cable will get internet access provided from the bell router?

In the diagram network 1 (blue) and network 2 (red) are not connected. Everything in network 1 can access the internet, nothing in network 2 can. The desktop is in network 2 and cannot access the internet. Somehow i want to wirelessly merge these two networks. I don't want to run an ethernet cable between the two routers, i want them to connect to each other wirelessly.

Cannot Get The Network Connection To Enable

I have a dell pc with xp home and i just took my pc off of a domain. Had to get the administrative password as well, which i did. Also, i cannot seem to stop a log in window from coming on with the original administrator name on it even if i'm the new administrator seems like he is still built-in administrator. I cannot get the network connection to enable. I have installed the latest drivers and i have a network adapter installed for wireless use when-ever i get the network connection to enable. I don't know yet how to use the wireless situation in my building but the access points, routers, and modem is within the building for all tenants. The bottom words come up when i try to use the network wizard. I'm good in bios and the nic isn't on. When it was it didn't work neither. I'm not sure what is network- pxe or pxe bis default policy or whether to turn them on. Some of this computer's network hardware is still disconnected. Before you can continue, you must either plug in or otherwise connect all of your hardware, or select "ignore disconnected network hardware. Any assistance is welcomed i will be on for another hour.

Network Connection Speed Issue

There are 4 computers and a printer connected to a switch. Well, this computer i'm on right now was just set up about 3 days ago, fresh install of vista (even though i'd prefer xp lol). The 3 computers that were already here get 150+ kb/s download speed. Ever since i hooked this one up and started using it, it hasn't gone faster than 30 kb/s, and stays about 19-25 kb/s. The ethernet port on the motherboard is bad, so there's an ethernet/network card instead. It worked fine at my house, which is where this computer was at before being formatted and brought here. I don't know how to tell which ethernet/network card i have, so i have no drivers. I'm guessing that's a big part of the problem. Any help?

Local Network Connection Cable Unplugged

I have win xp home edition and i recently had a problem start and i have no clue as to how to fix it. Last week my system started giving me the error that my "local network connection cable unplugged" and now i cannot get my network to connect. Here are the specs of my computer: amd xp 2200 cpu; biostar motherboard model: m7viq ver 1. 2 with via vt6103 lan chip; 768 pc2700 ddr memory. I run a vcom (system suite 5 utilities) firewall and virus checker. I have a broadband connection (motorola surfboard sb5100 cable modem) that runs through a 4 port router (network everywhere, linksys nr041). I have 3 computers networked through the same router and modem and no other computer has a problem with connecting to the internet, or to one another. Here are the attempts i have made to try and fix this problem but was unsuccessful (first i disabled the firewall and virus checker):

1. I've checked cable and it was plugged, tried a differnet connection on router and no success. Tried new cable, still not success. 2. I thought maybe a game my brother loaded (heavy gear ii) could have overwrote some important networking files since it is an online game, so i uninstalled the game. No success. 3. I tried 3 different restore points prior to the loading of the game and still no fix. 4. I ran xp's repair current windows utility and this still did not fix my network connection. 5. I've tried a different nic (realtek rtl8139/810x fast ehternet pci card) and it does the same thing as the onboard lan connection by giving me the same error. 6. When i go to the hardware manager, it says that both devices are working properly. 7. I pinged 127. 0. 0. 1 and nic checks out fine. 8. When i do a "ipconfig /all" at the command prompt, i get that both nic cards "media state" are disconnected. 9. I've done research on the internet on this problem and have not yet found an answer. I even went to heavy gear ii site and did not find anything that would help. I'm not even sure that the game caused the problem to begin with, but i'm out of guesses. I would like to go the windows update and run the updates on my system but i cannot get on the net to do so. I did load new drivers from a floppy for the realtek nic but that didn't work either. Can someone give me any suggestions on what to do next?

Abit Nf7 Nforce2 Network Connection Problem


Abit nf7-s v2 (nforce2) mb w/ udp v4. 27
Fresh install of win 2000 w/sp4
Only three usb devices hooked up; card reader, printer & usb2 card. No other devices)

I removed the three usb devices (uninstalled drivers) but it made no difference. I assign static ip address for my three computers (other two have been off)
No conflicts noted in device manager
Only 12 processes loaded at startup!
No virus scanner running. After the "preparing network connections" box disappears, it takes 40 seconds before i see the desktop! I timed it many times. On another nforce2 mb (epox) it is a matter of only a couple of seconds after that dialog box disappears. Questions:
1. If you disable a device in device manager, does windows still load the drivers for it on next boot?

2. If so, could that still cause a issue (assuming it was a issue in the first place)?

3. If there was a ip conflict with another machine, if those other boxes were off, it wouldn't matter would it?

I don't remember having this issue before i moved this box back where it was originally (from using it with my hd ptv to the office). The only other change is it on a different router port. Btw, i also have fp, er, xp loaded on my 2nd bootable hdd and it hangs there also. Any ideas?
