Unable to connect to wireless internet after formatting the system.

Original title: Mr

Hi, please my dell Inspiron gives me a serious problem to connect to any wireless router, I can only use moderm to brose, I can't connect to any wireless network, this happened to me after that I have format the system but all other things work.



Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

As you mentioned after formatting the system, you cannot connect to a wireless router, I recommend updating the firmware on your router and updates your wireless network adapter drivers, as there might be a chance that the wireless drivers are deleted.

The majority of connection inside Windows 7 problems have been resolved by installing the latest driver for the wireless card with obtained from the manufacturer. Download and install the Windows 7 compatible drivers and check whether the problem is resolved.

You can refer to the link provided below to update the drivers from the manufacturer's website.

DELL drivers.

If the problem persists, I suggest you try the below mentioned methods and see if it helps you to solve the problem.

Method 1:

First of all, I suggest you run Windows built-in network troubleshooting to get the problem automatically detected and corrected.

See the article below to run the network troubleshooter utility.

Using the troubleshooter from network in Windows 7.


Method 2:

This problem can also be bound to the adapter, reset, update driver, disabling, re-activating, uninstall and reinstall network adapter can help.

Follow the steps in the following article to troubleshoot network adapter.

Hope it would help. If problem persists always post back with the current state of your computer and the result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to help you.

  • Unable to connect to wireless internet after Windows Vista update on 16/09/10

    Since I've updated windows I cannot access my wireless internet connection, however, I am still able to connect via the LAN port.

    If I check my ipconfig it says under the "media disconnected" wireless network connection  I tried to get my IP address into my settings because they seem to have disappeared, but I can't always wireless.  I ran all Windows diagnostic tools, but all say that the internet connection is fine (due to it being connected by the LAN port).

    I also tried to fix it by other solutions on this forum, that is

    • Open Set Up a Wireless Router or Access Point by clicking theStart button, clickingControl Panel, clicking network and Internet, and then clicknetwork and sharing Center. In the left pane, clickset up a connection or network, and thenset up an access point or wireless router.

    The result of the message is ' Windows has detected network hardware, but it cannot automatically configure "and when I try to manually configure the server requires a user name and password which I don't have.

    Please could shed you some light on this case for me?

    Thank you very much


    I tried everything above without result.  However, I managed to reinstall my wireless router software after having repaired my DVD driver software.  I restarted my computer and Wireless does not work.  Reinstalled the software new and restarted the computer, and then after a short period of time the computer connected to wireless internet!  Not know not why the remedy has been delayed or why it did not work after the first attempt, but it connects wireless now - what I know is that this problem occurred after an update of Windows, it's a shame that Microsoft failed to address this problem as it was their update it as many other people have also claimed.

    A big thank you to everyone who offered advice.

  • Unable to connect to wireless internet; can only connect to the network, saying "Local only" or "limited connectivity".

    I have problems to connect to any wireless internet - home, library, coffee shops.  He used to work, began to get in trouble (i.e. could not connect sometimes to the diner, but works in the library) and now does not connect to internet AT ALL wireless.

    Only connects to the network saying "local only".  And I'm lucky even get that much.  Furthermore, I don't know if it's a router problem or what, but it does not even accept the password for my home network (my boyfriend has no problem on the internet with Windows 7 and the current router password).

    I use a HP G60 laptop (maybe?), I don't remember the model exactly.  Windows Vista.  I am frustrated beyond belief.  I took the computer to Best Buy and the man suggested that contact Microsoft because, in his own words, "this seems to be a very common problem with the adapter wireless in Windows Vista".

    In summary: is it a hardware or a software problem?  It seems to be a software problem that can have an impact on the material.  Nevertheless, what can I do to fix this?  Y at - it a software update, I need to try for my wireless card?

    This computer is not yet a year old, and already I am unable to use it for the internet.  Not very well I plug my ethernet cable router wireless in the library.  I bought a laptop for a reason, but it is on track to achieve more like a desktop.  Very disappointing.

    Someone, please help!

    I took the computer to Best Buy and the man suggested that contact Microsoft because, in his own words, "this seems to be a very common problem with the adapter wireless in Windows Vista".

    Is this a hardware or a software problem?  It seems to be a software problem that can have an impact on the material.  Nevertheless, what can I do to fix this?  Y at - it a software update, I need to try for my wireless card?


    When the man from BestBuy, fortunately for us technology is not a cleaning product, there is no way of knowing if someone puts his hand on it and knowing what is wrong rather than moving oral reprimand...

    First step, log on to the HP support and download the latest drivers for your wireless card.

    The HPG60 is a very good phone but its wireless card has problems with old drivers.

    In which case it's a hardware problem, contact HP support.

    In general, you can use this process to find out what's wrong with the wireless.

    Most laptops have a physical switch for the wireless card. Read the manual of the computer and make sure that the wireless adapter is on.

    Check the Device Manager for the wireless card valid entry.


    If there is no valid entry, remove any entry from fake and re - install the drivers for the wireless card.

    Check network connections to make sure that you have a network icon/entry wireless connection, and that the properties of the icon (right-click on the icon) are correctly configured with the TCP/IPv4 protocol in the properties of network connections.


    Make sure that if there is Wireless Utility a utility vendor is not running with the native Windows wireless utility.

    Make sure you firewall No. preventing / blocks wireless components to join the network.

    Above everything is OK and it connects to the wireless router. Log in from any computer which is, or can be connected to the router with a wire wireless, disable wireless security, make sure that the wireless streaming is enabled and try to connect with no. wireless security.

    When the work turns on the Wireless security.

    Note * people sometimes make mistakes in writing and retype the password for security.

    Another way is to copy in the menu of the router and then paste it when asked of the wireless card.


    I really checked and configured every thing and it doesn't work.

    Software firewall application that is not configured to allow local traffic (between the computer and the router is also a possible problem.
    some 3rd party software firewall continue to block the same aspects it traffic Local, they are turned Off (disabled). If possible, configure the firewall correctly or completely uninstall to allow a clean flow of local network traffic. If the 3rd party software is uninstalled, or disables, make sure Windows native firewall is active .

  • Unable to connect to wireless internet at home and cannot renew IP address

    Here's the question:

    I have a few years old Toshiba Satelite laptop with Windows XP SP3. I recently took my office where he has been on the internet via an ethernet cable in the living room where I tried to connect to my wireless internet. It would connect, but says he has "limited connectivity or not." Perfectly fine, I can connect to my neighbor's wireless internet, my wife has the same computer exactly like me and connect to our wireless internet and the neighbour, and there is absolutely no problem with the intensity of the signal. I ran ipconfig and that's what he said:

    Ethernet connection to the Local network card:

    In addition, I don't know if it's important, but I have DSL service from AT & T with an AT & T 2Wire Gateway. If anyone has any ideas or ideas that could help me, please let me know. Thank you

    Well, I don't know what was wrong, but I got it working now. I just uninstalled and reinstalled all software or drivers or something that had nothing to do with wireless internet and it is now everything works fine.

  • loss of signal wireless/network after reinstalling the system

    I have a Pavilion g7-1070us laptop who couldn't start. I reinstalled the OS Win7 by downloading the ISO file and activated by the method of the phone.

    The problem is that even after you install the network driver concerned Intel (sp57090.exe) on the site of HP driver support, I even canoe see a connection or a wireless signal.

    A caveat is that, once I installed this driver from nextworking, a message pops up saying "this program cannot been installed properly" and gives you two options: 1) reinstall using recommended settings. (2) keep as is (this program has been installed properly). I chose option 1 and reinstall it was fairly smooth and no other error arises.

    When I tried to troubleshoot and set up a new connection to the internet, the following error message appeared:

    "Windows doesn't detect any hardware networking". I ran diagnostics disk before so he spent without any problem. It's very confusing.

    Thanks for any help!

    If the network controller device is missing, then the driver installed and you should now see an Intel 5100 WiFi card listed in the category network adapters in the Device Manager.

    You should now be able to connect to wireless internet.

    The other two drivers you posted the ID for are the following:

    First install it and reboot.


    The other is the graphics card that needs a driver.


    One of the unknown devices is probably this one...


    Another unknown devices is probably this one...


    You must display the hardware for the 3rd ID like you did the others.  If it is listed as being unknown, it does not start with PCI\VEN.  Right after the top line of characters.

  • Unable to connect to wireless networking

    My Toshiba laptop has been pre-installed with Windows 7 Home premium 64 - bit OS and it worked quite well with the BB wireless. However, the wireless internet was on and turned off in recent weeks, while other mobile devices, such as iphone, ipad, or laptop, in my household had no such problem. The wireless signal was so strong, but the error message always says "unable to connect to wireless networking. It seemed that there was something wrong with the wireless adapter.

    I got a new adapter properly installed TP-Link wireless. Fortunately, it worked; but unfortunately, it worked for less than 24 hours. It was really frustrating that I, like student full time, depended so much on the wireless network card.

    Help, please! Harry


    You can enlighten us with:

    -What model do you use (eg..) L300-123)
    -What version of BIOS is installed?
