Dear Person;...


I hope I'm in the right sub forum for this problem...
I recently bought & installed a USB WiFi adapter that was working...
Somehow someway it decided to not connect to the internet..
The adapter IS working according to the "Device Manager"...
I ran several different troubleshooter programs with no real results...
The windows troubleshooter shows the following results:=>..
1)..
DHCP is NOT enabled
Have NO idea as to how to do that...
2)..
WiFi does not have a valid IP configuration...
Again , Have NO idea as to how to do that...


In my start tray on the far right side , there is an Icon for internet...
When I go there it says:=>..
""Unidentified Network"
No Internet Access""
I presume that is for the WiFi ...

In the same graphic it says;=>..
""r**m**""
"Internet Access""
I presume that one is the router that is on now..

BTW:..
The router has been checked out by Centurylink & IS OK..
The problem appears to be that the USB WiFi is not communicating with the router..(IMHO)..
The driver appears to be installed & working OK ...

 

So here I am stuck with a fixed location unable to move my computer around my home & use it..
This is where you GREAT techs come in..
Somewhere there's an error in the settings..
I will be delighted to give you ANY info you need to solve this aggravating  problem..
I have a Dell GX280 with Win 8.1 fully updated & NO viruses, Trojans , malware , etc..
My computer IS CLEAN...
I would SINCERELY APPRECIATE ANY & ALL HELP...

THANKS..

Have a GREAT day & weekend... :D ...
 

Later..Ron.M... B) ...

Ron, do the following:

 

Open a Elevated Command Prompt:

 

XP, Vista or Windows 7:


Click on the Start button and type cmd.
DO NOT press Enter or click Go.
Look at the upper part of the window and you will see cmd.exe.
Right click on it and select Run as Administrator.

 

Windows 8, 8.1 or 10:

 

Press WIN + X to open Start context menu.

Select Command Prompt (Admin)​.

 

Paste the following into the Command Prompt window, exactly as shown, including double quotes:

 

cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping yahoo.com >> postme.txt & reg query "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" | find /i "proxy" >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"
 

and press ENTER.

A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close. Post results in a reply here.

 

Do you have a wireless network?

 

Have you connected to a wireless network?  If so, how did you do it (what exactly did you do)?

@Rich - He did say, "I recently bought & installed a USB WiFi adapter that was working..." so he did at one time have a wireless network.

DHCP is NOT enabled

 

This is odd as typically DHCP is enabled by default. DHCP is the protocol that allows your network adapters to "dynamically" receive an IP address from your router. DHCP is usually easier to manage because you can connect a new device (computer, printer, etc.) to your network and your router will assign a new IP address to the device. However, this can sometimes cause problems. For example, after power returns after a power outage, devices may get different IP addresses than they previously had.

 

The other option is using a "static" IP where the administrator sets the IP address for the adapter and configures the router to use that IP address.

 

"No Internet access" is different from "no network access". Can you access your router's admin menu by entering its IP address in your browser address bar? If so, then you have "network access" and your adapter is working, and something else is blocking your access out to the Internet. If you cannot access your router's menu, then your adapter may not be working.

 

In addition to Rich's suggestions, I recommend you do a full shutdown and "cold" restart. When you simply shutdown or restart, your computer is simply going into and out of standby mode and in this mode, your network adapter is kept "alive" by the power supply's +5Vsb standby voltage. This may be keeping an old IP address or corrupt settings which may be blocking access. To do a full cold restart, shutdown your computer as you normally would, then unplug the computer from the wall (or flip master power switch on the back of your PSU, if it has one) for about a minute. This will provide plenty of time to ensure any settings held in standby are released, but also [hopefully] plenty of time to tell your router your device is no longer connected (if this is an issue).

 

No promises this will work - but it is a simple thing to try that often does work.

Ztruker & Digerati:...

Thank you both for your QUICK replies !!!...

1st , Digerati:..

EVERY time I ran that particular troubleshooter , I get  "DHCP is NOT enabled""...
This has happened on several occasions even after the computer is off overnight..

Can't get any colder start than that ...
I've also done many resets on the router to NO avail..
It's still not enabled !!!

 

 

If so, then you have "network access" and your adapter is working, and something else is blocking your access out to the Internet. If you cannot access your router's menu, then your adapter may not be working.

By "adapter" , which are you referring to ???
The WiFi adapter shows up as working properly in the "Device Manager"..
So does the modem/router...
The router/modem is from Centurylink..
There is no menu function on it...
I can get the menu by going online ...

 

Can you access your router's admin menu by entering its IP address in your browser address bar?

 

I believe that that is what I get when I enter the ID number...
The page has;=>..
Modem Status
Quick Setup
Wireless Setup
Utilities
& Advanced Setup

 

I probably should have told you guys that I do have a Router that has both Ethernet & WiFi capabilities..
Since my WiFi does not work , I have to move my computer & accessories to where the phone jack is..
That is becoming quie a chore..
That is why I opted for the WiFi USB adaptor..

Ron, WiFi installation is one thing, connecting to a wireless network is another.
The USB dongle self installing is great but when and how exactly did you connect to a wireless network?
 
Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi 2:
   Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : Home
   Description . . . . . . . . . . . : 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card #2

   Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
 
You need to enable DHCP to get an IP address and DHCP address.
 
See here: How to turn on DHCP in Windows 8?   See if that helps.
I'd recommend disconnecting the Ethernet cable while working on this.

Edit: Also, please expand and post the info in Device Manager, Network Adapters.

:( I don't think you were following me. A "cold" restart has nothing to do with the temperature or length of time the computer was off.

 

In electronics, a circuit that is "alive" is often called "hot". So a "cold" circuit has absolutely no current running through it.

 

As I noted above, when you simply shutdown your computer, you are simply putting it into "standby" mode and there are still many circuits running through the motherboard that are still "alive" or "hot". This is a requirement set by the ATX Form Factor standard that all PC motherboards and power supplies must adhere to. These live circuits allow such features as "remote start" with the case's front panel power button, "wake on mouse", "wake on keyboard", and "wake on LAN". And on newer computers, they keep data "alive" in your RAM for even faster starts.

 

So, as I also noted above, the ONLY way to remove these standby voltages is by removing all power from the computer's power supply. This is done by unplugging the computer from the wall, or flipping the master power switch on the back of your power supply - if your supply has one (not all do).

 

****

 

 

Interestingly, it seems DHCP is enabled for your Ethernet connection.

Digerati;....

Since the WiFi quit , I no longer can use the computer at my remote location away from the phone jack...
BTW:..
The remote location is in another room close to the router/modem..
When not in use at the phone jack , it & all accessories are unplugged for at least 8 hours overnight..
That should drain the power supplies down to zilch by daybreak...
Does that sound like a "cold start" to you ???
The only thing live is the 3 vdc standby button battery..
If you like , I can press the power button before I retire or ??



Ztruker;..


 

 

The USB dongle self installing is great but when and how exactly did you connect to a wireless network?

 

The "USB dongle did it on its own..
I just plugged it in & away it went...
When it was done , I was online with WiFi...

That's the "how"...
Need more info as to "when" ...



I went here & followed the instructions to the letter...
Ethernet cable was unplugged...
How to turn on DHCP in Windows 8? 
STILL not working...
After I did that , I restarted the computer just to see if that would help , it did not....


 

Edit: Also, please expand and post the info in Device Manager, Network Adapters.

 

Not sure what you mean by this...


I have attached 3 pix...

One is the Network that shows I'm on Ethernet now & WiFi has no access...
The second is from "Device Manager" that shows the WiFi "dongle...
Clicking on that brings up the 3rd pix...
 
Those are "Paint" pix & I do hope that you can see them OK...

THANKS to you both... :thumbup: ....

Have a GREAT Valentines Day...

Later...Ron.M... B) ...

I am afraid you just confused me even more. I don't understand why we don't seem to be communicating here.

 

This is a PC, right? And not a notebook?

 

Phone jack? Do you mean where the modem connects to the wall?

 

When it comes to a complete power removal, I am not concerned with any accessories. Only the "PC" power supply. That is what needs to be unplugged from the wall - but only for about 10 seconds. I said 1 minute to be extra extra sure.

 

Are you trying to connect to both your Ethernet and wireless at the same time?

Neither do I !!!
Yes , it is a PC..
Its a Dell GX280..

 

 

Phone jack? Do you mean where the modem connects to the wall?

YES !!!
Absolutely !!!...To my phone line...

 

That is what needs to be unplugged from the wall - but only for about 10 seconds. I said 1 minute to be extra extra sure.

 

So , "overnight" isn't enough time for the power supply to bleed off ???

 

 

 

Are you trying to connect to both your Ethernet and wireless at the same time?

NO !!!..
When I had wireless , it was in the remote location...

There is NO phone jack there...
When the wireless stopped , I drug the computer into the kitchen where the wall jack for the phone is & the router/modem IS plugged into that jack..
There I plugged in the Ethernet cable into the rear of the computer & go online...
THANKS...

BTW:..
Concerning ,"Cold Start"..
What I did was unplug the computer from the AC outlet , pushed the Power On button & waited for the LED lights to go off..
That should clarify things for you .. Yes , ???
 

Later...Ron.M... B) ....

This is what I mean. I never mentioned anything about phone jacks or unplugging your modem yet you seems to be replying with that to me. Only the computer's power supply from the wall is needed to totally remove the +5Vsb voltage.

Yes. Thanks.

Something VERY strange is happening here...
I ran the procedure to turn on the "DHCP"...
Here are the excerpted  results that I got earlier this morning:...

In both lists there are places where DHCP is NOT on !!!!
I have no clue if that's important or not...



Digerati;...
Are we good with that ???..
I presume you looked over the data posted above...
Any ideas ???




Thanks...

Ron, with the computer near the modem, disconnect the Ethernet so only the WiFi dongle is installed then reboot. Collect the ipconfig /all one more time please.

 

Also, do you see a icon for your WiFi in the System tray area of the Taskbar (right side)?

 

Try uninstalling the 801.11n USB Wireless Lan Card #2 from Device Manager by right clicking on it and selecting uninstall.

Remove the Wifi dongle then reboot the computer. Once reboot is complete plug the WiFi dongle in and see what happens. See if it works again.

Ztruker;...

Last night I reset the "DHCP" back to On...

This morning I checked it & it was OFF !!!...

In reply;..
Yes , there was a WiFi Icon in my System (Start) tray on the right side.....
I uninstalled the 801.11n USB Wireless Lan Card #2 , removed the dongle & rebooted the computer...
I put the dongle back in the computer & after 15/20 minutes , nothing happened..

I did not use the driver that they told me to download ..
I presume that this is a self installing dongle...


Here is the "ipconfig /all"...
After using "ipconfig /all"  , I got text that I could not copy & paste from Command Prompt (In Admin mode)..
So I used the long form from post #2..
Here are the results;=>..

Rich , as you know , I'm NO expert on this stuff...

However , there are some discrepancies that prompt me to show & ask questions...
 

Here I go;=>..
Under;..
Windows IP Configuration
""IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
   WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No""
Shouldn't one or both of those be ON ???

Under;..
Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi:
""Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected""
How & why is this disconnected ???
Shouldn't that be connected ???

""DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No""
WHAT keeps turning this OFF ???

THANKS...

Have a GREAT day & week...

I'd go ahead and try the latest driver you can find for the dongle. What is the make and full model number of the USB dongle?

Ztruker;...

There are a few names for this thing...
This is the listing for it where I bought it'=>..
""XiaoMi Mi WiFi Personal Portable Wifi Router USB 2.0 Dongle""

This is the way its shown in the "Device Manager:=>..
The green arrow is for the dongle...
The red arrow is for "Microsoft WiFi Direct Virtual Adapter..
There are the sequence of steps posted below that I used to enable that item...
Made no difference to get the dongle up & running...
