    Network administrator blocked Wi-Fi connection on private PC running on Windows Vista

    While I was trying to connect my PC running on Windows Vista to a Wi-Fi spot, it is blocking the Wi-Fi connection with a message saying “Your network Administrator has blocked you from connecting to this network”. Mine is a private PC without any network administrator. How can I get rid of this issue?

    First of all, check whether you are on a network domain. Click the ‘Start’ button for that and right click on ‘Computer’ option available in start menu. Select ‘Properties’ option afterwards and check the Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings in System window. If there is no network domain set up on your system, then try deleting permission filters via command prompt. Navigate into Start->All Programs->Accessories from the desktop and right click on the ‘Command Prompt’ option. Click the ‘Run as Administrator’ option afterwards and type in the password or click ‘Continue’ according to the prompt message. Once you get into the command prompt, type the following commands into it and press the ‘Enter’ key.
    netsh wlan delete filter permission=denyall networktype=infrastructure
    netsh wlan delete filter permission=denyall networktype=adhoc

    Hello Guest,
    Some misconfigured driver settings may lead to the target of such a display message. But don't worry you can set it right by clearing off some unnecessary permissions(blocking this feature) from the system. You should be logged in as Administrator on your PC/laptop. Click on Start menu and type "msconfig" in the search box. This will open up a UAC panel. In the general tab, check the box next to your adhoc device. That's it. Click on OK and restart your PC. You should be able to use the wi-fi hotspot feature now, which is compatible with your network adapter(PCI Express). If you are still not able to use it, use the resource CD and install the drivers of your network adapter manually.
    Thank You. Hope this helps. Wishing you a merry xmas and a happy new year in advance! Regards!!!!! :-)
