Wireless Network - Local Only
Attached is my ipconfig/all as it pertains to wireless.

My lan connection is working fine, and other computer can connect to the internet via the same router.

is the wireless secruity enabled - if so - remove the security and try and reconnect

lets see an xirrus screen shot - also do a tcp/ip reset

what firewall do you have on the PC or ever had - Norton, mcafee etc

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifi_d...d_redirect.php
Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.
Full details are here http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_...g_a_Screenshot

Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better.

If you are using the Mac OS then use http://www.istumbler.net/

Hi,

2 of the CMD commands ran successfully, but "netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log" returned:

"reseting Echo REquest, failed. Access is denied"

Reseting interface, OK! A reboot is required to complete this action.

This message was returned despite me running CMD as administrator.

uninstalling and re-installing the network adapter may fix the access denied by re setting all the TCP/IP drivers

if you goto device manager and then right click on the wireless adapter and uninstall - then reboot the PC and allow windows to re detect the adapter and install

what firewall do you have on the PC or ever had - Norton, mcafee etc

I reinstalled the WIFI network adapter, but it didnt help. I don't think I've ever had norton or mcafee. right now I'm only running windows defender.

Any chance this could be hardware related? My fan recent stopped working and i had to replace my harddrive.

the wireless adapter is working and picking up the signals

Quote:
Reseting Echo Resquest, failed. Acces is denied
i suspect theres an issue with windows

you have uninstalled the adapter via device manager and on a reboot allowed windows to redect the adapter and re-install

lets see the services

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Services

We would like to see some status information for each of the services listed below to do this goto
Control Panel>
Administrative Tools>
Services>

then for each of the servies listed below - Please post back the following status information -
If the service is Started/Stopped
and
If the service is Automatic/Manual
  • COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
  • Computer Browser
  • DHCP Client
  • DNS Client
  • Network Connections
  • Network Location Awareness
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • Server
  • TCP/IP Netbios helper
  • Wireless Zero Configuration (XP wireless configurations only)
  • WLAN AutoConfig (Windows 7 & Vista wireless configurations only)
  • Workstation


If a service is not running,
right click on the service
then click on properties and now check the dependencies.

Check each of the dependencies and see which one is preventing the service from running.

Also to help us identify what may be causing the issue
Check the event log, there may be clues to what is failing. To do that

control panel >
administrative tools >

Hi, sorry for the long delay. I posted the status of services in the quote above. As for the event log, the error category alone has 8700 events... what is of interest to you in that event log?

Thanks,
Fraser

would you goto device manager and uninstall the adapter and reboot the PC and allow windows to find new hardware and install the adapter again

repeat the tcp/ip reset and post the results

anything that's flagged as an error when the pc starts

as this is quite old post - can we see another ipconfig /all and xirrus screen shot

Norton, Mcafee etc - have a look at control panel - programs and see if can see anything like Norton, Mcafee, Symantec
