Preferred Solution: changing name of my wifi internet

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: changing name of my wifi internet

Go to your router config page, it should be one of these:

192.168.1.1
192.168.2.1
192.168.1.100

Username and Pass should be admin:admin

And you should see the option to change the name. I don't have access to a linksys router right now, so I can't give you step by step instructions, sorry.

Hello forum people,

I have the following problem on my Toshiba Satellite R850 running Win7 64bit: I decided to change the wireless adapter so I can connect to the 5GHz wifi network my router provides which wasnt possible on the Atheros wireless adapter it came with. I changed it to a Intel Wireless AC 3160- the physical change went quick and without problems and while the adapter is basically working now the problem I'm facing now is that the F8-hotkey function to de-/activate the Wifi and Bluetooth is no longer working. When I press the hotkey button all the different hotkey combinations show up on the upper part of the screen, but now there's only F1-F7 and F9, F8 just went missing. Does anyone have any idea how to get it back?

Thanks in advance and take care

This is the exact opposite of most WiFi issues. I have two guest networks set up on my wireless router (Asus RT-68U), one for each of my daughters. I change the password daily in order to make them earn the password with chores after school. My older daughter's T450 refuses to stop connecting to the WiFi, even persisting through reboots. MAC address filtering fails, as does turning off internet access to her MAC/IP combination. After changing the password or enabling one of the more strict rules, eventually, randomly, her laptop will finally decide to stop accessing her WiFi connection. I am fairly certain it is something with the Lenovo as I have two other laptops, one Asus and one HP that both respond as I would expect to a WiFi password change. Any ideas as to why this happens with the Lenovo?

how do you change your ip when your connected to a wifi connection??
 

A:changing your up on wifi

If you are talking about the private LAN IP address between the computer and wireless router, it would depend on how the router is configured to assign IP addresses.

If you are talking about the public Internet IP address, that would depend on how the service provider assigns IP addresses.

We may be able to better help you if you explain what you are trying to accomplish by changing the address.

Hi all, I just started an attempt to (officially)  upgrade the WiFi card in my Z50-75. When I bought the unit, it had the Qualcomm Atheros AR956x B/G/N card installed, I will now try to replace it with a Broadcom BCM43162-AC card. I found a seller on Aliexpress who is selling this Broadcom card with the original Lenovo Partnumber 20-200573, which is also indicated in the Z50-series Service manual. Today I ordered the part, I will let you know if the part was genuine and has the proper Lenovo ID in its firmware.... ;-) http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Broadcom-BCM43162-1x1ac-BT4-0-M-2-Combo-card-for-lenovo-E455-FRU-04X6... For sure it will take some time for shipping to Spain, when it arrives I will keep you posted. Un saludo from Spain, Satbeginner

The Windows password and your WiFi password are different. To change your WiFi password, you need to login to your router. In most cases, you can access your router by entering 192.168.1.1 in your browser. That should bring up your router interface. You can change the password using the router interface.

After doing a lot of searching and looking at several complicated ways to change the password on my win 8 to access my home WiFi, all I had to do was to right click on the SSID and tell the computer to forget it. This cleared out the old password and it asks for the new one. Turns out that what seemed to be very difficult was too easy.

Hello,

I am an owner of the Lenovo y510p laptop. It is notorious for having a internet connectivity problems with its intel n 2230 wireless card. In my case the internet connection would drop every minute at its worst and every 6 hours at its best. I have looked for solutions to this issue and as possible result I am in the current predicament. Here are the most likely culprits:

1) I have installed Wireless_17.0.5_De164 from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...?DwnldID=23994
2) I have uninstalled Intel Management Engine Interface from the Device Manager as suggested in this forum https://communities.intel.com/thread...t=225&tstart=0

At this point I have received BSOD, driver_corrupted_expool. I rebooted the computer and it was working fine and and then when I tried further changing options in my wifi card I would get BSOD, but then the system would not boot without getting BSOD. I panicked, and have re-installed windows while keeping all the files. Following the re-installation of windows the BSOD problem still occurs and is consistently occurring when I try changing Advanced settings of my wifi card from the Device Manager window. Furthermore, I have got BSOD on other occasions 1) Freshly after rebooting when I opened Firefox. 2) While making a call on skype. I have received several errors including bad_pool_header.

Hope that helps, I have attached my diagnostics.

Thanks so much in advance,
dobryjr

I did follow all the steps as described in the hardware maintenance manual, reassembled the whole thing and when I tried to start it again, nothing happened. The power light briefly flashes but that's it. I tried reinstalling the old card (no effect), pressing the power button for 30 seconds and unplugging the CMOS battery (no effect).

Spybot installed but would not open. Task manager is locked. He had an expired version of norton. I couldn't uninstall norton so i did a manual uninstall(used to work for Mcafee) and then tried to get Mcafee's scan in dos to work, which i couldn't even extract the sdat until i did it in safe mode with cmd. I was finally able to get that to run, but also know that it is not specifically designed for malware. The computer is getting slower by the minute. System restore was deleted. So, now the scan in dos will finish in a few hours, i'm hoping that it'll get me to a point that i can install a spyware scanner. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Hi,
I work in IT at a school and on numerous occasions, we are having students changing the wifi network on some of our windows 7 machines. I would like to remove the network icon from the taskbar or block access completely to changing network settings.
Due to the way our AD servers are centralized across multiple schools, I am not allowed to apply policies to devices under the domain. (all our windows machines are AD bound)
So far I have used lpedit.msc to lock students from shutting down or restarting computers (this also happens quite often) but I am unsure how to block changing networks.
Is this possible using lpedit.msc or secpol.msc? Keep in mind I cannot use AD Policies.

Hi Sabrefresco ^_^,

Unfortunately, the ZIP File uploaded by you does not contain any Dump files for us to analyse

You would have to upload them manually. The Dump files are located in the path "C:\Windows\Minidumps\". Make sure you ZIP up all the dump files in the folder and then upload the ZIP File in your next post as an attachment.
You might need to copy the dump files to some other folder before you could ZIP them up due to permission issues.

I am having one hell of a time getting my new camera's (Panasonic FZ1000) wifi to recognize my computer. During the setup I can get as far as entering the computer's name, username and PW, but keep getting rejected with "wrong username or pw." I definitely know that the PW I use is the correct login PW for my PC, however I'm thinking that the problem may lay with either the username or computer's name. Before I go mucking around changing names, I'd like to know if I do make changes will this effect my wifi hookups. The computer in question is my desktop (main computer), I have a portable PC and TV/Bluray player associated with the modem/bridge...obviously I don't know much about wifi hookups so I can't better explain the hookups. BTW, it appears that I have two different usernames. One is the name that appears in the upper right hand corner when seleting the start icon and the other comes from this:
2. In the Command Prompt, type “set username” and press Enter
3. Your computer login name will be displayed after the "username=" tag.
And if I have to use the latter one (just above), then it presents an entry problem within the camera. This name is two words and the camera's entry keyboard doesn't allow for spaces, so I'd have to change the name to a single word.

EDIT: Actually, I have the feeling that I have confused computer name with username. Hopefully, this will be straightened with an answering reply

A:Will changing username/computer name effect wifi functioning?

Right click Computer (Desktop or Start Menu) and select Properties. Computer name is listed there.
Also in cmd write: echo %username% (this will give username)

Changing the computer name might require to redo network shares and the like, an annoyance at most.
Changing the username now won't change the login name, only the displayed name will change. So you are at a loss there.

However, you can create a new user account with the appropriate naming scheme and give due permissions to do the job. And create a shortcut to the folder from your main account.

I don't know what kind of access is required by the camera, is it only for copying the content?

A:Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

Due to the age of XP this is not the best option for what you want to do

Either windows 7 or 8.1 have access to Internet connection sharing (ICS) built in

To use ICS you need at least two connections to the local LAN, these can be any mix of wifi or Ethernet.

As you have a laptop you likely already have a system to use for this

The new WiFi Router (D-Link DR-842) Shows it is connected to the internet (green light) but in the setup page, it says disconnected. Could the PPPoE details be causing this? As far as I know everything is correctly set up except for the internet part.

As advised by many sources, I am trying to change wifi encryption from WEP to WPA2 to help prevent 'piggy-backing' by others (which I believe has occurred). I have configured my router and it now shows WPA2 but on my laptop it appears (somewhat surprisingly!) that Win7 only supports WEP (the only option, apart from 'open', shown in the relevant drop-down menu).

I have checked and the 'Network Adapter' is the latest available.

Please tell me (not very computer-literate!) what I should do.

Hi,

I would like to change my IP address between static and dynamic depending on which WIFI network I'm connected to. I.e. at home I would like a consistent IP address (static) for network file sharing but my University requires dynamic assignment to connect. Is it possible to (automatically) change between dynamic and static depending on the network?

I know how to do this manually, but I was hoping there was a more automated method. Even if there was some sort of batch file I could run when I changed networks?

Thanks in advance

I currently have a Qualcom Wireless AC Card in my Yoga 920. When I change wifi networks, I don't always get the internet going right away (we have 2 networks at home and several different networks in the office). I would need to right click on the wifi icon in the task bar and click on troubleshoot, then wait for it to fix itself. This happens probably 90% of the time when I change networks (ie Home network, then when at the office, I connect to the Work network and have to perform the troubleshoot to get the internet going then vice versa when back home. Or even changing between our 2 different Home networks - as in from different ISPs and not just changing between 2.4 and 5ghz connection). Also, is there something wrong with Chrome for the 920? When I change networks, and get the internet going (as in the wifi icon property says that there is internet and the yellow triangle exclamation is not present anymore), google chrome does not automatically connect to the internet and load pages. Edge, on the other hand, does not have issues upon gaining internet connection after the troubleshoot. For reference, I have a custom built desktop. I have an Intel AC 8265 in it, and it does not have this issue when switching between our home networks and chrome does not any issue as well. So yeah, I have two issues. Any ideas?

I have a desktop PC running Win XP SP2 and a notebook on Win Vista Home which I have networked through a Trendnet wireless router. The desktop has Zonealarm firewall installed. I went into Zonealarm and entered the IP address for my notebook into the trusted zone and for a while evertyhing works fine. Every once in a while, though, connectivity is lost and it always traces back to the wireless IP address for my notebook being different by one digit. For example, the IP in the firewall had been set to 192.168.0.100 and so was my notebook and has been working fine. Or at least it was. This morning, the notebook IP had changed to 192.168.0.101 which of course didn't match what the firewall was looking for so no connectivity. As soon as I changed the firewall setting, voila, connectivity.

Why does the IP address for my notebook keep randomly changing for no apparent reason? The range of IPs I've seen assigned to my notebook is always 192.168.0.100 through 192.168.0.102.

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 with Windows 7. I have been using Time Warner Internet. It worked fine until yesterday. WiFi stopped working out of the blue. When I tried, wired connection works pretty well. I do not recall any significant changes to my computer while this happened. So now I can connect to the wifi hotspot but it says "No Internet Connection". When I connect the LAN wire with the WiFi router, internet works. The moment I remove it, it says No Internet Access, although computer is connected to the hotspot and signal is very well.

The drivers are being shown as up to date in device manager.

I tried following instructions given here: http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-Winsock-and-TCP/IP
This didn't work. Problem persists.

I have been through some threads around here. This is the ipconfig output:

Hi All,
I have established a Virtual Wifi Miniport and would like to share my laptops internet via the Miniport. Whenever I connect my android phone with this access point, it works perfectly for a few minutes and then all of a sudden there is no internet on the phone. The phone remains connected to the laptop hotspot but the internet access is no more there. Now at this point if I disconnect the connection between my phone and the hotspot and then again try to reconnect back again, it wont even connect. The phone will keep on searching and shows connecting status but can never connect. I have tried all sorts of softwares connectify, virtual router, intel mywifi and even tried to create a hotspot from the cmd using netsh command. All the hotspots work in the exact same way intially works perfect but maybe after half an hour internet is gone. I have completed all the steps properly even changed the settings in the laptop adapter with interet access to allow other networks to connect but nothing seems to work. I have a Windows 7 Machine and my wireless adapter is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless N-100 and the drivers are up to date according to windows. I know that its a problem with my laptop/OS or something because my android phone can connect and remain connected( without losing internet ) to the connectify hotspot in my wifi enabled desktop PC.I am breaking my head over this for the past 15 days even formatted my system once but no use. Please help if you can..please!

I've been battling this particular issue for a couple of weeks now without much success. I have a custom built desktop where my WIFI connection will deteriorate to the point where internet (and gaming over Steam, etc...) will be either painfully slow or unable to load pages at all. Windows claims throughout that I am connected to my WIFI network with internet access and good signal, even when I cannot reach any internet pages.

This problem has happened at 2 different locations (on different WIFI networks), and with 3 different WIFI adapters (TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 PCI, TRENDnet TEW-684UB USB, Edimax EW-7811Un). At both locations, I have another laptop and a phone that can connect to the WIFI network just fine. I even got a couple of the adapters to work fine on the laptop without the issue.

I've found that disabling NetBIOS seems to temporarily improve matters (I'd read elsewhere that that can cause issues), but it has not resolved the problem. Also: I'm getting DNS errors in the Windows 7 event logs:

"Name resolution for the name XXXX timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."

ipconfig results are posted below. Images of Xirrus (1) and its connection test (3) are attached. Any help is very much appreciated!

Hey everyone, sorry if this is in wrong area.

So today I bought a secondhand computer. It's a Toshiba Satelite L875D-S7230.

When I connect it to my home wifi it connects no problem and says 'internet access' when I hover over the icon. However when I open open google chrome or internet explorer and type in a site, it takes a little while then says this page cannot be displayed or this web page is unavailable.

The guy I bought it from says he had no issues. And I know it's not the internet because I'm using the internet to post this from phone.
I've tried a few ideas that worked for other people on other forums like using cmd box but to no avail.

Has anyone got any idea why the computer is being such a turd?? Can anyway give advice on how to fix the problem? Thank you all so much!

Can you connect successfully by ethernet?

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

My comp was infected with a virus until I finally got MBAM to work and delete all my viruses and rootkits. My Internet was working fine both ways before I installed it. But now i can connect to it, but when I access the Internet in any of my browsers (firefox, ie8, opera, or safari) I get a blank screen in firefox after going to any site, and the rest just say that it's not connected to the Internet. Even tried going into Safe Mode with Networking, no luck. Please help!

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I am using windows xp sp3 with firewall off and system restore disabled by group policy and using the admin account does not help solve the problem either.

When I connect through one of my PCs to the internet, I use NETZERO PLATNUM... which, for the most part, I am pleased with. The only thing that I do not care for is when I connect initially.... it takes me to the NETZERO homepage. Now... with other ISPs... it would automatically go to whatever homepage I have set in INTERNET OPTIONS.... which for a few years now... has been YAHOO.

Well.... I still have YAHOO set.... however... it seems to automatically BYPASS that and go right to the NZ homepage. Do any of you guys know any kind of work-around for this? So I can have my browser open up in YAHOO or is this just something ISP related that I will have to live with?

Thanks in advance

Ok, so last night I tried changing the WEP to WPA because I recently found out our neighbors were stealing internet from us. However after doing all this changing around I used 192.168... And all that and was able to change the ssid and the passphrase but after doing so the Internet stopped working. We are able to connect but it says there's no service or limited connectivity so no web pages or anything loads. I'm pretty much a noob with this stuff but I was doing what a family member, whose has experience with computers, said to do and now I can't get back to the router page by typing that 192.168. stuff because there's no Internet. Don't know what to do. This is my fathers ISP and it's not the greatest considering the location. I've tried unplugging the router and whatnot but that's not working either. I think we need to get back on the router page and fix something but it's not allowing us to since there's no Internet. So I guess my question is how do I fix this? Am I going to have to change back to a WEP.. I dont really want too. The router may need to be upgraded too because it's pretty ancient. Help.

Sorry if I need to be more specific, but as I said I'm not all too familiar with this. I would call the ISP but they dont operate on weekends and they always take a week+ to respond to peoples concerns. I hate them but can't do anything about it since this is my dads Internet provider. Ugh....
