I posted a topic about the same computer back in April - http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...waking-up.html
. I am a novice compared to almost everyone here. So when I didn't get any real assistance with my previous post, I felt I had no option other than to do another "restore to factory settings" on my HP Pavilion P6745f desktop.
Ever since, it is not able to connect to my home network/router properly. My pc uses an Atheros 802.11 a/b/g/n Dualband Wireless Network Module. My router is a Linksys E3200. I am unable to troubleshoot via the tools provided on my pc.
In my control panel/network connections, the adapter is shown but says "attempting to authenticate".
If I use an ethernet cable and connect directly to my router, I have internet access. However, my "personally assigned network name" is not displayed, it only says "network - internet access". If I try to connect to my network wirelessly, it says windows in unable to connect". I cannot access my router settings via my browser.
I have reset/power cycled the router etc, which has not helped. I have 2 laptops which use the router and they are working normally - either using wired or wireless connection. They access it normally through my proper network name etc. From what I can tell, the issue seems to be specific to my desktop and not my router itself.
I'm sorry but I am quite new to forums and hope I have posted this in the right section. I have no clue about posting this stuff or which scans to run etc., but I am able to run any of these things under direction of experts. I could really use some help!
