Question about Computers & Internet

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

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.

1) Click "START" and in the search area, type in "Network and Sharing Center"

2) Select it, and look for "Manage Wireless Networks" in the left hand column to set up wireless connections.

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.

Making my emachines D620 wireless


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...

How to connect to wireless network using vista with SSID disabled


Normal 0 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 fine.

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 I guess.

Good luck;
