Emachine notebook doesn't recognize my wireless network.
I recently bought an emachine notebook on sale. It is the G725 model.
I set up Vista and did all the other necessary configuration. Everything went fine until setting up wireless connection.
The notebook doesn't recognize my home wireless network but can see all the surrounding networks. I tried connecting right next to my router with nothing occurring. I also tried connecting it using a LAN cable and that enabled me to access the internet.
I tried doing the manual addition of the device to the network but with no results.
I've tried several walkthroughs to fix this but ended up with the no progress.
My wireless router is a D-Link - WPA-Personal - TKPI and AEP
Re: emachine notebook doesn't recognize my wireless...
Try running the Microsoft updates or getting updated drivers for your wireless NIC. It's even possible that the wireless card in the laptop doesn't support WPA security. Unlikely seeing as how the board is fairly new, but possible. You might also want to try getting a PCMCIA wireless card and popping that in.

WPA is not very stable and I have seen many problems with this. Simply change router setting to be configured with WEP and use a good strong password in hex 0-9 and a-f . WPA is horrible any way, and who the heck is gonna sit out side your home to hack it? It is not a WIN 7 problem but more like aging encryption.
when you installed the driver for the usb did you select your usb device model ? some drivers are written for usb devices AND for wireless cards (=pcmcia) and at the begining of the instalation they ask: please tell me do you have usb or pcmcia ? or they might ask you (for example) to select the right model.
now if you have "usb" but you selected "wireless card" then at the end it will try to locate a wireless card.
if this is not the case then probably your usb is not working ok - you should try it on another laptop (or pc) and then have it changed at the shop you bought it...
well!! I have an answer for you.your comp is loosing the IP address.first connect your computer via cable then
goto start - programmes - accessories - dos prompt.
type ipconfig.you`ll get ip address,subnet mask,default gateway.copy it.
goto network and sharing center in vista and network connection under control panel in XP,IN Vista,click on view status,goto properties and double click on internet protocol(tcp/ip) or IPv4In XP,right click wireless network connection and goto properties and double click on internet protocol(tcp/ip).type in the IP address,subnet mask,default gateway.in DNS server address type the default gateway in primary DNS and in secondary 220.127.116.11.
your connection won`t drop after this.
On your laptop, go into the “Manage Network Connections” and
delete your network. On you router, disable the SSID. In the “Manage Network Connection”
click the add connection button and enter the information about you network manually.
Vista will tell you that connecting to a network that doesn’t broadcast it’s
SSID is less secure and will ask you to verify. After that it will connect just
The reason its less secure is because your computer will ask
everything it can if its xyz network and someone with not-so-good intentions could
say that its xyz network and you would connect to a insecure network and all
the info that you pass on that network could be intercepted. Choose your poison
-- ckeck if you see 'wireless connection' in the network connections, in order to find it, click start --> control panel --> network connections and you must see wireless connection in case of win xp.. start --> control panel --> network and internet --> network and sharing center --> manage network connections and you must wireless network connection under LAN or hi speed connection... in case of win vista
--if you have that ikon that means you have your drivers installed on the computer properly --right click wireless network connection and click "view available connections" in case of xp and "connect/disconnect" in case of vista
you must find the network and get connected..
letme know if you have problems connecting..
