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

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

Alright, today I plugged it in to ethernet and the connection was rather slow. It didn't even want to go to Google because it was unsafe. Then the screen flashed blue with some text (all I could reqd was "safe mode") and it crashed.

I think it's a physical problem on the inside.

You need to run malwarebytes in safe mode with networking.

Also try going into device manager. Right click your wireless network driver and selecting disable and then enable.
Alrrady tried that. Did not work.

Try the step about plugging in the ethernet directly. If that doesnt work. Post your laptop and model number and serial number if you have it. Should be on the bottom of your laptop. Also your OS and any network drivers you hav installed on your computer along with their versions. This evening i will find your drivers

It's a desktop hp Pavilion Elite m3940ff.

Serial is MXX83308P7

System number is KQ497AA#AB

the driver is 802.11nn Wireless PCI Express LAN Adapter.

Unfortunately, when I plugged it in to the ethernet, the connection was very slow and didn't even want to let me into google since it was unsafe. Then the screen flashed blue with some text for about a second (all I could read was safe mode) and it crashed.
