Make sure that the signal strength in that area is good...

normally this happens when the network range is very low... probably u will have to try connecting having the router kept more nearer..

Use these instructions to test and see IP's.Go to Start > Search > Type cmd and hit enter key.
In Command Shell:


Type ipconfig /all These are your IP settings.
Type ipconfig /release To clear IP settings.
Type ipconfig /renew For new IP settings.

How to remove an Existing Wireless Profile (XP, VIsta, Win7)


When we connect to a wireless network, a "profile" is saved so that, in the future, the Wireless Network Adapter will connect automatically to the network if it is available. These profiles are saved and used by Windows even if you changed the settings on your wireless router causing connection problems. You need to delete these profiles to allow Windows to create a new one that is compatible to the new settings of the router. <br /> <br /> To delete an Existing Wireless Network Profile: <br /> In Windows XP, if you're using "Wireless Zero Configuration" to manage your wireless networking, go into the Network Connections folder ("Start &gt; Run", type ncpa.cpl and click OK), right click the Wireless Network Connection, select Properties and then the Wireless Networks tab, where you can highlight and then "Remove" an existing profile. <br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="iantechson_3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> If you're using third-party software provided with the wireless adapter, there should be a similar option to remove an existing profile. <br /> <br /> In Vista or Win7, right click "Network" (My Network Places) and select Properties. Click the link at the left to "Manage Wireless Networks" then, in the next window, highlight the "Network" to delete and click the "Remove" button. <br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="iantechson_4.jpg" /><br />

How to connect laptop (using internal wireless adapter) to a wireless network)


Make sure you have the correct Password exactly like it should be (case sensitive). If it is not correct, it will continue in the loop of trying to validate identity.

Also you can click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Connection and select Properties.

When the properties window opens click View Available Wireless Networks. Highlight your network by clicking on it then select Properties.

The Association tab will allow you to change the Network Authentication to WPA2-PSK if it is not set to that and if the adapter will accommodate it. And you can put in the Network Key or Password.

Sony Vaio laptop unable to detect wireless access point


CompuLayne: Hello bluebells953

Netgear is quite tricky as is with all other routers, but I don't think the router is your problem. Try to do the following.

1) Turn off Vaio laptop
2) unplug router
3) unplug modem
4) plug back in modem - wait for it to boot up
5) plug back in router - wait for it to boot up
6) turn back on the Vaio - log in and see if it sees the SID. If it isn't broadcasting, you might have to enter it in manually and select connect to non broadcasting network
