Windows Wireless Lan 802.11stop Working

I just bought Toshiba notebook a month or so ago with Vista Premium sp1. A day ago when I turned on notebook, I had a notice to the effect: Windows Wireless Lan 802.11 Extensibility Framework has stopped working.

-> Check for a solution later (recommended) next time you start system
-> Close

Those were only two choices. I believe I clicked the first one "Check for a
solution later." When I turned on notebook tonight, I got the same message. Does anyone know what could be wrong with this new notebook? I am using the wireless to get into IE7 and type this message. My husband and I are senior citizens and not too familiar with computers or computer language so if someone has an answer, please make it simple enough for us to understand. We hope this new notebook isn't broken already. We can't afford to buy another computer or have this one repaired.

Broadcom 802.11n Network Wireless Not Configured
I found out that the issue was caused by a conflict between the wireless driver and the sound card. I tried to install the Broadcom Wireless Adapter update, thinking that would fix it? and somehow during the process I uninstalled my Broadcom Wireless Driver? I then went into the device manager and clicked on my Broadcom Wireless adapter and clicked on "update driver software". It runs a search and then tells me that my driver is up to date.

The Device Staus is: This device cannot start. (Code 10): The Driver Version is 10/26/2007

but when I try to connect to a wireless network, It tells me "the network adapter "broadcom 802.11n network adapter" is experiencing driver or hardware related issues. Please don't waste our time with comments like "ditch the Mac and get a real computer"

Non-wireless Home LAN
I have a Vista Home Premium 32bit Desktop and just purchased a Vista Home Preium 64bit Laptop and I would like to create a non-wireless (yes I know, but I am not ready for a wireless network at this time) home
local area network. When I search my Laptop I don't find how to connect the two computers using a cable. Also, I have AT&T DSL for internet access.

Wireless LAN Connection
I use Window Vista. I have no problem connecting to the internet if I use a normal cable but when I use my wireless LAN AP, my PC can detect the wireless router with no problem at all but then my PC could not connect to the Internet (the Earth). My wireless router is a IEEE 802.11 LAN. I believe this is related to some codes or something that I should enter?

Internet, LAN And Wireless Goes To Local Only Mode
It's the Internet, LAN and wireless. Problem is that after a time period X they just all want to go to "local only mode". Just to mention, I have three Vista laptops, which all are doing the same thing, and my only XP laptop works just fine. So it's pretty much narrowed down to Vista laptops...No matter what Microsoft wants to say.

So what happens? -> I have a private network (wireless is encrypted with WPA/PSK and the password is correct...), it connects allright and the mode is "Local and Internet". After some time, it can be two minutes or one hour, it just suddenly goes to "local only mode" and stays that way.........

Wireless LAN Fails, All Parts Work Fine.
Small home wireless LAN, Netgear WGR614v4 router, Using WPA, two XP machines, one Vista (home Basic ),

1) all working ok for many hours, except when
2) Vista machine goes to sleep mode. On wakeup, no connection. Network SSID is visible, good signal, but repeated attempts to connect fail.
3) Other computers connect to router, and internet fine. They can also standby/poweroff and restart fine. Still connected.
4) Reboot Vista computer, no help. Network settings look normal, just no connection to wireless router. Incredibly irritating Vista diagnostic tool suggests I connect to a another network, or recycle the router. (If the router was close enough to be easily recycled, I would just plug in an ethernet cable. But it is not, and I am tired of unnecessary trips to the basement.)
5) Power cycle router, and everything fine again.

Win 7: Wireless LAN Drivers And The TV PVR Card
The system is a HP with AMD quad proc, COTS from BestBuy. Came with Vista Premium and is new, runs Vista OK after I turned off the power conservation sleep mode on the system. Turns out sleep/wake on Vista isn't always that reliable and messes up with Wireless LAN drivers and the TV PVR card. But setting the CPU to never sleep fixed all that.

I added a second disk, using a newer SATA disk, unpluging the primary existing disk as to preserve it. Using the recovery media I made earlier, I recovered the Vista OEM image to the new disk. Always like to know if those OEM recovery things really work. And I will say this, it is better than other vendors as it properly restores the recovery partion too.

Next to upgrade the system to Win 7 picking a clean install. I like clean installs as it doesn't carry the garbage forward including possible old driver issues. And it should give the OS a fair chance to run. Then installed drivers for the stuff Win 7 didn't recognize. Really it was just the keyboard and the PVR. Let the system settle in as Win 7/Vista have a propensity to do stuff in the background, waited until that seem to subside............

Plugged In Xbox 360 Via LAN Now Wireless Is Screwed!
I was in the process of trying to get internet access on my Xbox 360, so I plugged it into my laptop (Toshiba Satellite L305-S5921) and as soon as I did my wireless connection went from full connection to either local only or identifying (one of the two). So I no longer have internet on not only my laptop, but I still can't figure out how to connection share to my Xbox. This happened before, but somehow it fixed itself? I tried reinstalling the wireless drivers to no avail; it didn't fix the problem. So if anyone can help me diagnose this problem, This is pretty urgent because I need to be able to use the internet for homework.

Wireless Not Working. Wireless Network Detection Has Stopped Working
I am using a windows Vista 32 bit home premium notebook computer for which the wireless network detection has stopped working. I updated the driver for the built in wireless card with out any results. I also tried a plug in wireless card which windows detected and said was working properly and this did not work either. This leaves me to believe that something is wrong with the OS. I can get on the internet via dialup modem and also by the ethernet connection with a DSL modem. I have been to several hotspots that I know have wifi and no networks show up. All critical windows updates have been installed.

Recommended 802.11g USB Adapter For X64?
I have Vista Ultimate x64 installed on a dual core Pentium D 820, 3Gb ram machine. I also have a "bluenext" USB 2.0 wifi adapter, which is actually based on the ZD1211B chipset, recently renamed the Atheros AR5007UG. Running WPA-PSK

- all drivers since result in very slow performance (~ 30 kbps)
- virtually every day the adapter stops working. Usually the LED is off & no error is logged, but device needs to be replugged to reactivate. Occasionally a reboot is needed.................

Windows 7 Slow LAN Connectivity
It's really annoying that when you connect two computers to a WiFi AP and try to copy files between them it takes ages to copy anything and is slow beyond any reason. Even when I connected one of them via wire it's still terribly slow and even freezes from time to time. One of the PCs is XP the other runs 7 Ultimate. I already disabled that thing that checks for connection errors or something but still no joy.

Wireless Not Working After New HD
I have problem with connecting to a network through wireless. I think I got it because I installed a new hd and vista, so my laptop is essentially new. But for some reason, I seem to not be getting any wireless connectivity to the internet. It used to work before my hd broke down, and now, my "new" laptop doesn't seem to know that I have wireless.

The only way I can connect through the internet is by using ethernet and connecting the laptop with my dsl modem.

Wireless Can Not Working Properly
One computer upstairs with modium and router right next to computer getting full bars and great signal. My computer, downstairs aprx 8 mtrs away, brick house getting only 3 bars. When the upstairs computer is turned on I get no bars hence no signal. If i turn upstairs computer off I than get signal. The range says indoors up to 46mtrs, 100 mtrs outdoors. Why would having the upstairs computer on effect my signal downstairs? Do I need a better router of better modium. What can I do?

Ethernet-Works, Wireless - Not Working
I have a vista Home laptop and an xp home desktop. Router is a speedtouch 780 supplied by O2. If i connect Vista lap to router by ethernet i have no problems. However when I connect with wireless, I can see the xp desktop an the
shared directories, but when I try to open them the system hangs and says the folder name is not valid.

I am also running a Xampp server on the XP and can access the localhost webpage when connected by ethernet but not wireless. I have done all the usual stuff, same workgroup, same name and password, turned firewall off on both and router, set static ip's, changed everyone permission settings on Vista. Share C: drive, undo and redone shares after each change. As it is xp home I can't access security settings, but as I say, Ethernet-Works, Wireless - Not working

Wireless Connection Stopped Working
all of a sudden my wireless connection stopped working, so i did a system restore and it started working again, then it made the updates, and it stopped working again, the system restore worked twice and then after the updates, not working again, this time more permanent, when the computer starts it tells me that the bluetooth is on, but no existence of the wlan, the driver doesn't even show up on the device manager.

Then after some time my computer became stuck it didn't respond (this due to a different issue) so I decided to force the computer to turn off, when it restarted i had a wireless conection, then I turned off the computer and when I turned it back on no internet again, then I decided to try the force turn off again, and again I had internet. also if i have the internet working and i close my computer the internet stops working as well

Wireless Network Stopped Working
Whenever my wireless stopped working I would shut my computer down. I'd do a primary hard drive test. It would fix my wireless almost guaranteed. I tried it earlier today and it didn't work. Now I got this screen telling me I need the Vista CD to resolve a problem with one of the drivers. I don't have the Vista CD. My laptop came with the program not the CD. I checked with my manufacture website and I even downloaded an HP Support Assistant. It says everything is up to date.

Wireless Printer Stops Working
I am running Vista Home Premium on my laptop. I have a Brother wifi printer (although it connects to the router with a wire). I have 2 desktops and my laptop that use the printer. The two desktops use the printer without a problem. My laptop only works during the period after I add the network printer. When I reboot, it will seem to print to the printer but it just gets stored in the printer queue and won't print it.

Telling the print queue to try again doesn't do anything. If I delete the printer from my laptop and add it again as a new printer, it works great until the next reboot. I have no other printers in my printer list, only the Brother. None of the desktops (one Vista Home Premium, one XP) have this problem.

Running Wireless Connection Can Not Working
I Am running a 64x vista os and I've installed a linksys PCI adapter into it. well the problem is that i have connection to the internet, but the connection just keeps identifying, normally i would mind, but recently i've notice that all online games lags (not like once every five minutes, almost constantly). I'm sure that the computer can cut the setting, and my connection is 10/10 mbit so ain't that either.

Wireless USB Mouse Not Working
I recently purchased a Dynex wireless optical mouse for my laptop running vista. after installing the driver and software I can not get the mouse to work. When I physically move the mouse the light on the receiver blinks but the mouse does not move on the screen. I tried plugging the mouse into another system I have running xp and have zero problems. When I open device manager and look under universal serial bus controllers, the standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller says it does not have enough free resources.
