You can't connect to the network after McAfee antivirus using more the removal tool to remove McAfee software.

The network drivers is maybe damaged.

1. What is brand and model computer?

2. What is error right messagee you receive in Device Manager?

To confirm that the problem is with the driver, do us reinstall the driver:

a. click Start, click Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter

  • Cannot locate the network after reinstalling Vista

    I just had to reinstall vista (based on the recommendation of the forum do how can I install/uninstall anything one way). Now I can't connect to the internet, or my network. I have a laptop Dell Inspiron 1525.

    It seems that I reinstalled the network adapter - at least when I started there was no category "network adapters" in the Device Manager, and now he has one with Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller under it.

    Thanks to a different compurter I downloaded the thing Dell told me to download when I typed in my Service tag.

    Also, I downloaded and installed the service packs 1 and 2 since for Vista, since I knew that they were on my orginal OS.

    In looking at the network and sharing Center, it seems that network discovery is turned off.  I tried to turn it on, but nothing happens.

    Any ideas on what to try next?

    In addition, I don't know if it's relevant or not, but when I reinstalled my OS, I thought everything would be gone, but the memory is always at the same level as it was before resettlement.

    Cannot access the network

    Google Chrome has access to the network.

    Maybe it's because your firewall or antivirus software wrongly think that Google Chrome is an intruder on your computer and it blocks to connect to Internet.

    Chrome allow access to the network in your firewall or anti-virus settings.
    If it is already listed as a program allowed to access the network, try to remove from the list and Add again.

    Understanding Windows Firewall settings

    Note: Firewall and Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not turn off your antivirus software and firewalls. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you should reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software and firewall are disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

  • Windows cannot create the network map. Responses of the other devices on the network are delayed or on the network, there is a router incapatible

    Original title: no network card
    I installed a NETGEAR N300 Wireless USB Adapter on my computer which is a desk top Dell 64-bit running Windows 7 Edition Home Premium. There are five computers on my network. Two of the others use the same model of NETGEAR wireless USB adapt. I removed the Ethernet cable after the installation of the wireless adapter. I can say that the new wireless adapter works fine. When I tried to map the network I got the same message that appears in some of these problems: "Windows cannot create the network map. Responses of the other devices on the network are delayed or there is a router on the network incapatible". I have restarted this computer in SafeMode as suggested in the above problems. I tried other things like disabling the wired connection has always existed for the cable. No effect. Then I tried mapping the network on the other computers. All failed with the same message. All the other four computers are 32-bit. Three of these computers are also running Windows 7 Home Premium. They are the best desktop computers. The other computer is a Windows 7 Starter netbook running. It is the 32-bit computer, always using a cable. That will be replaced with the same wireless adapter model NETGEAR. Anyone know how to fix this or is this a bug? It would be nice of the network software of Windows 7 has worked as it is supposed to. TO.

    I went the last wired wireless computer and the problem disappeared. The five computers can view the map now without any problems.

    What is going on?

    Given your description of what works and what does not work, I can only think of two possible explanations:

    • Some firewall 3 rd-party blocks wireless connection: what security software is installed, including your antivirus program, any firewall program, any program antimalware, etc.. ?
    • You are currently connected to the network wireless to a neighbor with the same SSID (network name).  It would be very likely if you, indeed enter a password to connect wireless
  • HP 200 MFP M276nw not seen in the network after changing router

    Printer: LaserJet Pro 200 color MFP M276nw

    LAN: both PC (Windows 7) and the printer connected to the router.  Other devices connect wirelessly.  Internet service is cable.

    I installed this printer when a router Linksys E2500 was in use.  The configuration of the network after the installation of the printer:

    IPv4 address:

    Subnet mask:

    Default gateway:

    Configured by IP: DHCP

    I replaced the router Linksys with a Netgear WNDR4500 router (N900) a month ago.  Everything worked fine for about two weeks.  All of a sudden, jobs sent to the printer began to take a long time to start to print until they stopped printing altogether.  The printer does not appear as a device plugged (cable) in the interface of the router on the Web.  Not even the HP Print or HP Print software and the Scan doctor could find a printer is connected.

    I have unisntalled and reinstall the printer, but did not succeed until I changed the Ethernet cable connecting the printer to the router.  The difference is that the old cable Cat5e and replacement a Cat6?  It's printing and scanning now but the printer is still absent as a wired device, and I fear that it will stop working once more.

    I noticed that the network configuration of the printer after reinstalling is:

    IPv4 address:

    Subnet mask:

    Default gateway:

    Configured by IP: AUTOIP

    Research on the Web, I found an article saying that AUTOIP could be a sign of problems of router or a cable.  My suspicion is that the IP address of the printer is constantly changing and this is the reason for the delay of printing.

    My questions to the experts are: I could assign an IP address to the printer manually so I can add it in the router - it provides to this effect- and how this is done?   In the Toolbox of device HP under the IPv4 Configuration, there is a dropdown menu with different options - DHCP, BOOTP, AUTOIP, and manual, but I don't know if the changes are made here or if it's a more complex undertaking.

    Thank you very much.

    Kind regards

    Miguel remainder

    I solved the problem, the same day I posted the request for help.

    I've closed everything down - including the cable modem and router - but left the printer.  Go to the printer control panel and changed is manual configuration IPv4 of AutoIP toe.  I had already selected an IP starting with 192, since I read that starting with 169 IP addresses are associated parameters AutoIP.  From there on, the printer has presented a valid subnet mask addresses, I took one, and a default gateway address.  Then I stopped the printer.

    I turned on the modem, router, pc and printer.  The router then showed the printer as a device connected with his newly assigned IP address.

    I figured that the cable was not a problem here, so I put the Ethernet Cat5e cable.  What baffles me, is why the printer changed to AutoIP because it was not made by any user.  Check the reports printed during the first installation of the printer, I see that the method of IP in DHCP address.  After putting in the new router, changes were to name SSID and password in wireless devices and found the firmware of the router.

    It was learning by trial as I'm not a computer expert, but so far, we print and scan documents.

    Thanks to all who took the time to read the post and offered help.

  • Virtual machines are not able to access the network after you have moved the host

    We moved our 4 ESX host to a different physical switch and now our VMs cannot access the network.

    I can access the host via client vsphere.  Our host has 2 network cards.  They are both members of the vSwitch0.  I have 1 VM network defined, and they are both members of it.  The network adapters, vmnic0 and vmnic1 are also part of my VMkernel which I do not know that I need because I have 1 ESX Server and do not use iscsi or NFS.

    the two cards are also part of my service console.

    According to my host "configuration / display: vitual switch, it looks like all my virtual machines are defined to use the vswitch."

    the two physical network adapters is connected to the same switch.  I did not go to any configuration on the switch.

    The steers would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the community,

    It sounds as if the physical switch ports are not configured correctly. Please check that port security is disabled on the switch (switchport mode access) ports and spanning tree portfast is (if any).

    XP host and client windows 7 on ad - hoc network...
    Dear friends, I have set up an ad hoc network between two laptops. The host is running on xp sp3 and the client is running windows 7.
    Now the problem is that if I enable security on the network, the client windows 7 cannot recognize the network at all.
    If I turn off security on the network ad-hoc, everything works fine and I can share files and access the internet on client... Please help


    Now, I'm pretty sure that I understand your game up. Well done to get the internet connection, sharing of work (not a simple process) but without encryption.

    I am sure that the problem lies in the Windows 7 laptop (laptop 2). When you switch cell 1 to WEP, you must also pass portable 2 to WEP and provide the WEP key you have configured with laptop 1.

    It's getting late here now, but I'll try to answer tomorrow after I have test it on my two laptops to Windows 7. In the meantime maybe I can point you in the right direction...

    • Right-click the the small icon at the bottom right of your screen on laptop network 2 and then click on Open Network and Sharing Center
    • In network and sharing Center, click on manage networks wireless (nearby at the top left)
    • Click Add, and follow the wizard to create an ad hoc network, selecting WEP and providing the encryption key you configured on the notebook 1
    • Save the network so that you do not have to repeat this procedure.

    Otherwise, when you get to manage wireless networks, if your ad hoc network is already listed...

    • Right-click in your ad hoc network, and then click Properties
    • Click the Security tab
    • Change it to WEP and provide the encryption key
    • Click OK

    Good luck, I will pick up this new after my drowsiness.

    A missing IMEI is a fatal error which cannot be set. This is usually the result of the attempt to jailbreak or hack the phone unlock illegally, but not exclusively.
