X1 Yoga Wifi Connecting problems

Q: X1 Yoga Wifi Connecting problems

Hi My Wifi conneciton keeps dropping, it's not related to the router, as I have other computers and devices connect, also it happend with diferent wifi conections and routers. The connection just drops and then they cannot detect the any network for a very long time. I've restarted my computer to try and solve this but this doesn't always solve the immediate problem, it happends randomly, sometimes 3 to 4 time in a hour, then ok for a couple of hours. I've realized also that sometimes when I'm working, even that on the task bar it doest show, when I press the notification setting on the taskbar I get that the flight mode is on, with bluetooht and wifi even though it's not?? I have lenovo solution center and lenovo companion intallled and apparentely all the lastest drivers. So is there a solution for this, or is my computer just fautly and needs to be returned?? Thank you for your help

Hello, we own several laptops and never had any problems with our wifi. Throughout the last year we bought two hp laptops (15-ay013d and pavilion from last year) and both were never able to connect. It doesn't even check whether the password is right or not. Independent from what password you type in, it shows that it can't connect to the wifi.  Both laptops are on the newest updates and work perfectly with other wifi networks.We also have an older Hp pavilion g7 which works without any flaws. Does anybody know what the reason for this problem is and how to fix it?  Thank you in advance hajde3

My laptop has problems connecting to my wifi. Im using a D Link 524 router and my laptop has vista. Itll connect automatically very good for a few weeks then all a sudden have problems where the only fix is to unplug the router and reset. If it does connect, sometimes it says it has limited access or the little world wont appear and I wont have internet access. My wifes Kindle sometimes has problems also and my signal is strong. 

A:Wifi connecting problems

Sounds like you may need to do a DNS flush,
 
Click the Start button.
On the Start menu, click Run....
If you do not see the Run command in Vista, enter run in the Search bar.

Type the following command in the Run text box: ipconfig /flushdns
Let me know if this helps and good luck.

I have a handful of Dell E6410, E6420 and a small handful of E6520 machines. We are having problems with the network connection on boot when using WiFi only. If we connect via Ethernet the connection has no problems.
The problem we are having is that the machines are getting stuck on the welcome screen doing: "Applying group policy drives maps policy"

When we check the event viewer we are seeing:

Hello, I have a Yoga 2 and I'm trying to connect from the mini HDMI to a VGA monitor (through HDMI to VGA adapter). The computer seems to recognize the monitor. But the external monitor just shows a black screen. I've tried extending and duplicating the monitor, doesn't help. I've tried turning off the monitor and the Yoga, but nothing. Do I need any updated drivers or similar?

I currently have a Lenovo Yoga 910 (no 4k version) and I've been having problems connecting to an external monitor for some time now. The monitor works well with other devices so I'm positive it's a problem with the laptop/adapters. My external monitor is the following: Acer LCD. It does not have an HDMI port, but it has a DVI port. As far as I know, all of my drivers are up to date. I have two methods for connecting: 1. CableCreation USB-C male to HDMI female + BlueRigger HDMI male to DVI male 2. Choetech USB-C male to DVI male I used option (1) for a while with success, until suddenly it only provided low resolutions for the monitor. Now, when I try option (1), it won't even extend the display. I'll select "Extend these displays" and apply, only for it to go back to "Show only on 1". So this has somehow gone from working perfectly to not at all. I thought the CableCreation adapter might be faulty, but then: I recieved the cord for option (2) today, and the outcome is exactly the same. "Extend these displays" automatically reverts back to "Show only on 1". Thanks for any and all help!

Let me start by saying I've tried everything that everyone has recommended to fix this issue. I can hardly ever connect to my router, when it does it says no internet connection. It will only connect when I'm right next to the router, and even then the speeds are miniscule, 2-5 Mbps when I get over 200 Mbps with my Galaxy S7 in the same place. The issue occurs on 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Drivers are up to date.Wifi card is set to not turn off in Device Manager.Network card is set to max performance in Power settings.I have tried a factory reset of Windows 10.I have tried changing the channel on my router's 2.4 GHz band.I have checked the wifi card itself, as well as the antennas by a shop. They said the antennas look fine and are connected.I have uninstalled literally all bloatware that was on the device from factory.I have tried everything except replacing the WiFi card itself. The wifi card is Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA34AC. I'm not sure when it started but it has been happening for a while, I don't use my laptop that frequently. It could have happened after upgrading to Windows 10 from 8.1. In the mean time I have been using an ASUS Wifi USB adapter that works flawlessly, gets 100+ Mbps from the other side of my apartment from the router.

A:Yoga 3 14 wifi problems

Longshot you may have already tried: set the wifi card's channel width to 20MHz, or if it's already set that way try "auto" or the other possibilities.
 
I've seen the "connected but no internet" problem and worked around it this way.  Unlikely if it was working previously but easy to try.

A:Problems connecting Ralink RT3592 802.11a/b/g/n to 5Ghz WIFI

Hi: The only suggestion I can offer would be to try the latest driver directly from Mediatek (Ralink). PCI/ mPCI / CB(RT2860/ RT2760/RT2790/ RT309X/ RT35X2/ RT539X/ RT3290/ MT7630)6/30/2015Win7 32/64 Win8 32/64 Win8.1 32/64Win7:5.0.55.0 Win8:5.0.55.0 Win8.1:5.0.55.0 I had the same issue with the USB dual band Ralink wireless adapter. It only showed the 2.4 GHz band, and I knew for a fact that it was a dual band card. My initial conclusion was that the adapter was defective and only the 2.4 GHz radio was working. I searched the internet regarding the model adapter, and found that someone suggested installing the latest Ralink driver for it which indeed brought the 5.0 Ghz band to life. Not saying this is absolutely going to work for you, but you have nothing to lose by giving it a try.

hello,

i am having a problem with a new netgear AC1200 WIFI router Model R6120 and was hoping to get some help. I had a Linksys cicso WRT110 router that went bad last week. I went to Wal-Mart and bought the netgear AC1200. I hooked it up to a dell e6400 latitude running windows 7 pro and I cannot get it to connect to the internet using a DSL modem.

I can see the router when you click on the icon in the lower right corner that displays the wireless connections. I opened the network and sharing center and selected the "set up a new connection or network" and set up a home connection. I am not sure if I did this correctly.
when you open a IE browser to connect to the internet, the netgear routerlogin screen displays. it states that I did not have a connection to the internet and the netgear genie asked if it should create the connection. I responded yes and the genie started doing the work and then displayed something about a PPPoE connection and asked for my signon and password. I did not remember so I called the DSL provider and they gave it to me. I enter these credentials and the genie responded that the credentials were invalid. I contacted the netgear support and that guy was not much help. he tried some things and when it came to entering the username and password for the PPPoE connection and we received the invalid message, he said that it might be a bad router an that I should take it back and get a new one.

I've had my yoga for almost two years now and recently I've been having two issues: 1. The WiFi adapter will sometimes go out and it won't even show up on the device manager. The only "fix" I've found so far is to shut down and turn the computer back on (usually at least a couple of times) until the adapter starts showing up again. I've gone to the bios to check to see if it's showing up when I run the motherboard test and sometimes the PCI slot that it occupies doesn't even show up. I've been having to use a small USB WiFi adapter when the onboard adapter feels like being particularly uncooperative on certain days. 2. At random times (every few hours or so) when the laptop is just sitting on my desk, I will get an auto rotate notification and the screen will change its orientation, go into tablet mode, and disable the mouse and keyboard. Usually the screen will go back to normal after a few seconds, but the keyboard and mouse will still be disabled and the only way to get them both activated again (as far as I know) is to shut down the laptop and then turn it back on. My guess is that these two problems might be related. The reason why I think so is because I had similar issues a year ago with the WiFi adapter frequently not showing up on the device manager. I had the laptop sent in and it turned out to be an issue with the motherboard, which had to be replaced. So my guess is that there's something wrong with the motherboard again, which is affecting both the... Read more

Well, you or somebody else at your house is going to have to supply a bit more information about the WiFi set-up being used.

1) Name and brand of the wireless router or wireless access point being used to share the Internet connection.

2) The SSID of the wireless router or wireless access point and if it is set to broadcast the SSID.

3) What, if any kind of wireless encryption is being used and the key or pass phrase for that encryption. You do not need to tell us the actual key or pass phrase.

4) If the wireless router or wireless access is using any kind of MAC filtering to limit which computers and other hardware can connect to the wireless router or wireless access.

Hi guys, I found an old computer in my basement from 2005 maybe, it's running windows xp. Anyways, I'm can't figure out how to connect it to my xfinity wifi. Every time I press connect to Internet it asks about modems. I've googled how to connect it and I can't seem to figure it out. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
 

A:Help connecting to wifi

Hey Ryan. Is this a laptop or desktop. If it's a desktop, it likely doesn't have a wireless adapter that will allow connection to you wireless network. If it's a laptop, right click on My Computer,Properties,select Device Manager tab, then look for Network Adapters and click once on the + and see if you see any wireless adapter listed and if it is enabled. You can enable/disable a wireless adapter by right clicking and toggling between enable/disable. In either case, it probably needs quite a bit of work to get it up to date, and assuming everything else seems ok, I myself would start from scratch and reformat the drive and reinstall XP (assuming you have an XP disk for it) since any maintenance programs are just as old. If you're not sure about this, tell us the make and model number of this pc.

This is no problem. Just want to pass on information:
About 3 weeks ago, I signed up for the Verizon MIFI 2200 wireless service.....
Just want to let others who may travel a lot or in area where internet service leaves a lot to be desired, but have fairly decent Cell phone service, that it works Great (at least so far)
It is costing $35.00 for 3G service.

Not only am I a WiFi newbie, I'm also a Windows 7 newbie as well. I learned to use computers on Mac/Apple computers. This just adds to my dilemma and confusion.

OK, here's where I'm at right now.

I have an HP laptop (windows 7 x 64 bit) that I've been trying to get to connect to several local WiFi hotspots. I've only been successful at connecting one time. This was at a local BestBuy store and the internet speed was next to non-existent. The sales person stated it was most likely because alot of their in-store demo-products were also connected to the same WiFi and it created a drag on the internet speed.

In an effort to connect to other free WiFi hotspots in my vicinity I built a "Long Range WiFi Antenna." It works like gangbusters regardless of which direction I aim it. And many of the hotspots I'm able to pick up are nationally known Free-WiFi-Hotspots.

The problem is that no matter how strong of a signal I'm receiving, I can't connect to the internet via any of these hotspots. I'll get a message on my laptop telling me that it can't connect to the chosen hotspot.

There has to be something that I'm missing here. My Mac computers will work but, I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong with my windows based laptop.

My "Long Range WiFi" antenna set up is a combination of a C. Crane Super-USB-WiFi-Antenna and an old Dish-Network parabolic dish plugged directly into the USB port on my laptop.

The combined number of both the Private and F... Read more

A:WiFi Not Connecting

Info in your profile in the system specs would help greatly...PC/Laptop maker, model, ditto on the network adapters from your Device Manager. A screenshot of your adapter page from network and sharing...what anti-virus are you using, error messages you may have gotten while trying to connect, search for and install Xirrus WiFi desktop gadget, will show you signal strengths and channel info of surrounding connections. I can guess you have an HP with Atheros wifi adapter, have you tried updating the driver for the adapter at HP?

I have two wifi APs (let's say AP-1 and AP-2) and I sometimes have to switch from one to the other. The AP-1 is my main AP so it is always set with "Connect Automatically" for boot up. But, a lot of the time it does not connect to either AP on boot.

When I need to use AP-2, I select AP-1 and click "Disconnect."

I select AP-2 and Click "Connect" leaving "Connect Automatically" un-checked.

After using AP-2, I again select it and click "Disconnect."

Then select AP-1 and make sure the "Connect automatically" is checked, then Connect.

At the next reboot, about 40% of the times it connects to AP-1 but the rest of the time it connects to neither even though "Connect Automatically" is still checked..

Anyone have some thoughts on how to force this so that it always connects to AP-1 on booting up?

Hi!, @macwood: HP not have driver's for Microsoft Windows 10, Operating System for your computer.Only have for Vista and 7 ... http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-G60-Notebook-PC-series/3837658/model/3894827 IMHO, you must return to Windows 7 and download drivers from the site indicated.
