  • Windows Vista Business ed. reformat - my computer detects the network but will not connect to Internet

    Can someone help me, I can't reformat a laptop compact with a windows vista Business edition OS. I was wondering if I could use the recovery partition or do I have to use an installation CD. And by the way, just to give you a head I'm just a beginner and badly needs help. the problem I had is I get a strong signal for my WiFi, but again it is not connect to the internet it connects sometimes but then after I reboot my phone it comes back with the same problem, it connects to the internet, but I detect my network, someone told me to just reformat the entire system. I hope someone can give me a help step by step on how to do it. and also I do not see the product key for my system. your help would be greatly appreciated thanks

    • You have problems with programs
    • Error messages
    • Recent changes to your computer
    • What you have already tried to solve the problem


    Formatting/reinstalling is overkill. A bit like buying a new car because you have a flat tire.

    To reinstall, you can use either the volume of recovery or the recovery disc, both should work pretty much the same. In general, the product key is located on the system like a sticker (on laptops usually on the bottom). If you can't find yours, you should contact the provider or your network administrator (and in fact, if there is a working system, you should contact them before doing anything).

    Before you do this right, you can try this: click Start and type CMD. Right click on the menu entry that appears and choose "Run as Administrator". Click on continue in the UAC prompt. From the command line, run:



    ipconfig / renew

    Allow everyone to finish (return to the command line) before proceeding to the next. When you are finished, close the command prompt. See if that helps with your problems of connection.

  • Satellite L300-135 see WLan network but will not connect

    Well well, (new laptop) initially, it worked with my BT hub at home... then decided to not stop working - receives no signal or response from the router - even though other laptops in the House can connect without any problems

    and now the Wireless does not work - IE. I can see the wireless connection but cannot connect.

    I don't know that the wireless is not cut (until someone suggests)

    I looked for more up-to-date drivers, but nothing seems to work.

    Help, please!


    First of all, you should check if your wireless network card is correctly recognized.
    I mean to check in the Device Manager!

    Your wireless network card must be the Realtek 802.11 g (RTL8187B)
    Download and install the latest driver WLan in the Realtek page.
    Then update the BIOS.

    Finally, reconfigure all WLan settings.
    In the Device Manager-> properties-> Advanced tab card WLan disable energy saving settings and check the other parameters that may affect the connectivity.

    Good luck

  • Restarted my WRT160N, now my laptop connects to my network but will not connect to internet

My internet connection still works when I plug my laptop directly into my cable modem, and my laptop says that I'm connected to my wireless network, so I don't know what the problem is here.

    I was pulling out my hair for the last few hours trying to find a way to solve this problem, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • WRT54G will connect to the network but will not connect to internet

    Guys, I installed an older Linksys CM100 cable modem and when I did I lost the connection to the internet using the WRT54G Router. I can connect fine net when I go to right fromt the modem cable to the pc. I can use my home network very well. I did a firmware upgrade, does not. I'm losing my mind. It worked fine before the new cable modem. Does make sense to anyone? BTW, I can't connect to the internet via wired or wireless connections and ping gives 100% packet loss. Ditto for a ping to (cable modem) when the router is connected.

    Dear God please help me


    Thus, because no one here was able to offer all the help, I called tech support and was very surprised. I was able to get a tech immediately and without going through the 1 million on the phone buttons. The service is in India, but I could communicate well enough with him, even though I usually have people of understanding of handful who speak English as a second language. The issue that I had was that the default IP of the modem cable ( and ip address of the router ( were too similar. Apparently, the fact that the 3rd number 1 for both series was the cause of the problem. We changed the IP address of the router to, power cycling it and unfortunately it worked.

  • OfficeJet 6000 E609n - Wireless concludes SSID and secure network but will not connect

    I use Mac OS 10.5.8. I installed the printer for USB and went to the next step to configure wireless. My secure network, it obtains the SSID and then asks the WPA personal password for the network. I enter this and click on continue and the message comes back, "the Wi - Fi network selected «...»» ' is not within reach of the unit. ' Button choices are 'Change network' or 'Retry '. Despite attempts unsuccessfully repeated. However, I scanned for other networks and found a secure and connected to this network. Go figure. My router is sitting on my desk next to the printer. The router is a D - Link DIR-655 n I'm on cable for ISP services. When I first bought the printer, we were away on vacation, and I've successfully added to my Mac laptop. I have reset the printer found in the then successful and user guide to establish a connection to the House, with the unsecured network (I don't live in a condo so no idea whence the other network).

    You can try to update the firmware on your router.  Some of these models have had problems with HP printers and Netgear was subsequently fixed it with a new version of the firmware.

    Number of brand and model of the router?

    These settings are to set up your printer wireless (or wired):

    • Stay connected to your router
    • Trouble printer status 'offline '.
    • Wake mode 'sleep'
    • All wireless devices stay better connected

    While the DHCP is convenient, devices like printers (wired and wireless) should always be assigned a (fixed) IP address manually to avoid conflicts on your wireless network and must be outside the range of the router DHCP.  After the adjustment of the static IP address the computer must be updated to show a Standard TCP/IP port with the IP address of printers under printer properties/Ports.

    1. Set a static in the printer IP address (click here) outside the range of the DHCP of the router (check your manual). It is for Linksys routers, but can be used for all routers. Check your DHCP range and change this first if necessary. More Help Wireless Printing is here and here and still more here.  Video here explains the problem and how to solve the problem. <--> So watch this!
    2. Or check in the printer "Auto Off/sleep/Energy Saving Mode" is disabled the System Mode Time Out is set to zero (0) Use the built-in webserver (EWS) by visiting the printer address IP address in the address bar of your browser, click on settings tab/Auto Off. Or use the printer, printer Home Page (EWS) Wizard. Also check your printer properties.
    3. If the printer supports and has IPv6 enabled, disable the IPv6 option in the printer.
    4. Make sure that the printer is connected directly to a socket wall and not to a UPS, power strip or a lightning arrestor. This will cause the printer to drop offline connection and disconnection (checked yes!).

    Additional measures to take if you continue to have the problem (if they are posted)...

  • Watch WiFi is connected but will not connect to internet

    I have an iPad 2 which, all of a sudden (in the Middle streaming), is more connected to the internet.  I rest the network settings, when this does not work, I have reset all settings, stopped and rebooted, all done basically.  It shows that its connected to my WiFi, but will not connect to internet.  All the other devices in my house work, then there must be a problem with the iPad.

    Reset the router: just pull the power for a few seconds and reconnect. No parameter to get lost.  Other devices operating with success is not serious. The router has probably received an invalid address for the iPad.

  • Satellite L350-14F find the router but will not connect


    I just bought a new laptop Satellite L350-14F, but I can't seem to connect to my connection wireless broadband.
    My roommate's laptop connects fine.

    The mine finds the network, asks for the WEP key but will not let me.

    I am running Windows Vista SP1.

    Can anyone help?

    Hmm. I recommend you to check the settings of the WLan router.
    If the MAC address filtering enabled and that your WLan MAC address was not included in MAC address filtering, then you would not be able to connect to the router.

    It would also be possible that you try to insert an incorrect encryption key

    Therefore, it would be desirable to disable all the security settings on the router and then try to establish the WiFi connection.
    If this would have functions, then you might reactivate the WLan security settings.

    By the way; Check if an update of the Wlan driver could also sometimes there is some compatibility problems between the Wlan router and Wlan card drivers.

    How to get Vista recovery Media or the Vista recovery Partition on your computer back to factory settings.

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.

    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.

    Ask them if you can also make recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.

    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    MS advice on the conduct of clean install.

    A tutorial on the use of a clean install

    Super Guide Windows Vista Installation

    After installation > go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/notebook > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > get latest Vista drivers for it > download/install them.

    Save all data, because it will be lost during a clean installation.


    Data recovery:

    1. slave of your hard drive in another computer and read/save your data out there.

    2. put your Hard drive in a USB hard drive case, plug it into another computer and read/save from there.

    3 Alternatively, use Knoppix Live CD to recover data:


    Download/save the file Knoppix Live CD ISO above.


    Download the Vista software from the link above.

    After installing above ISO burning software, right click on the Knoppix ISO file > copy the Image to a CD.

    Knoppix is not installed on your PC; use only the resources of your PC, RAM, graphics etc.

    Change the boot order in YOUR computer/laptop to the CD/DVD Drive 1st in the boot order.

    Plug a Flash Drive/Memory Stick, BOOT with the Live CD, and you should be able to read the hard drive.

    When the desktop loads, you will see at least two drive hard icons on the desktop (one for your hard drive) and one for the USB key.

    Click on the icons of hard drive to open and to understand which drive is which.

    Click the icon for the USB drive and click on "Actions > Change the read/write mode" so you can write to disk (it is read-only by default for security reasons).

    Now to find the files you want to back up, just drag and drop them on the USB. When you're done, shut down the system and remove the USB key.


    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use it.

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

    See you soon.
