Windows 7: Another Wireless issue I can't resolve :/

Another Wireless issue I can't resolve :/

I'm hoping somebody here can help me. This is driving me nuts, i'm about to go insane!!!!!!

I recently got a HP Mini 110, last night i installed windows 7 RC 32 bit on it. Everything worked great last night, zero problems. Today I brought it to work with me, i'm thinking about making it my new "personal" computer at work. we have a dedicated seperate DSL with wireless on it, and it's giving me so much trouble, I've been fighting with it all day.

General description of issue. Router says connected, and have been assigned a DHCP IP address. PC see's router, Router see's PC in DHCP address, but can't get to internet. tried running the "diagnose connection" and Trouble shoot wizard several times with no help. still get same problem. One thing of note that may help in diagnostics. Hovering over name of SSID shows it's a secure WEP network, but when i tell it to connect, it never asks for a key. I set up the network manually and the above problem is what i get.

I have 80% signal, i'm roughly 15-20 feet away from the route with two sheetrock walls only in between it and myself. connected via LAN and works no problem, made sure drivers were up to date etc. Made sure WEP key is correct, rebooted, i've tried a dozen "fixes" found on different sites with no problems.

Does win7 support 64bit WEP Encryption? is there anything special I need to do to make it work? Any idea what could be causing the problem? I know the router works, cause I know two peple no more than 30 feet from me who are on it and using it right now with zero problems although one is on XP and one is on the EEEpc linux.

I've been at it since 8:30am and it's now 2pm (breaks to do other stuff in between) and nothing....please help!!!!!!

You might try
cmd - run as admin ->
1. ipconfig /all ... Show detailed information
make note of this.
2. ipconfig /renew ... renew all adapters
then recheck ip[config /all did it reset for Work.
when I change routers locally I have to /renew the ip so my laptop will conect to the new router.

also some times when i switch OS's I have to renew for Win7 but never for Vista.

I cant resolve my issue also! If i restart the computer connects for about 2 mins, and everythings fine, but then it just stops. After that i cant connect it just ask for the password, says "It should not take this long to connect to the internet or w/e" and then just ask's for the password again 30 seconds later. Any ideas?!

I tried doing release renew, all the basic trouble shooting was all done. it has pulled different addresses, there's been a few times where it's worked. I think i've given it up to be the office. I get it to work much better outside of this office, bu it just dies in here. Perhaps wiring / electrical interference, perhaps too many wireless signals in / around here I don't know.

It still works great at home, and in other places exept work.....

Whats the model of your work router? It may need a firmware update.

Hi and welcome to seven forums

The fact that it works for a short time and thene stops makes me think its something to do with either sleep/hibernate (wake on lan) or power setting. Does it work without uid and password?

Like Ken says, You might also check to insure the adapter is not set to disconnect to save power, (suks) , make sure you have cookies enabled for work.

I doubt it has to do with too many signals. You might also check with company tech, to have him add "your MAC address". make sure the adapter (save power) is not allowed.
