Hello,


I just turned on my computer after a long time and tried to connect to the internet unsuccessfully.
Every time I try to connect it either says "The Internet Conectivity test was unsuccessful" or "Windows cannot connect to [Connection Name]"
When I click on diagnose the problem it says "Windows did not find any problems with this computer's network connection." then it gives me the option to "Send a report to Microsoft" or "Windows can only doagnose one wireless network problem at a time."

I have already reset the router and the computer, I have tried netsh int ip reset, I have tried upgrading the NIC drivers throughna USB but all that does is stop responding and not download.

I'm on windows Vista and it's an hp Pavilion elite m9340f desktop

Any help?

Run a command prompt as an administrator. If prompted click yes for changes

In CMD type netsh int ip reset

Hit enter. Restart your computer

I did that. Nothing happened.

They show up but when I try to connect it says "Windows cannot connect to [Connection Name]. Wireless association failed because Windows did not receive any response from the wireless router or access point."

Plug the ethernet cable into your laptop
Does your laptop have internet connection with it plugged in.
If so while its plugged in. Go to your computer manufacturers website and drivers and allow the website to see what drivers you need updated.
Or
To get drivers to work right click the driver in windows and run it in comparibility mode for your OS
