Wireless connectivity issues when streaming video

Q: Wireless connectivity issues when streaming video

This is a bit of a complicated issue, and I'll admit I'm over my head on this one. I have a Gateway laptop running Vista SP1 that is connected to my home wireless network. The wireless connection will work great....except when I try to stream any video. Once I stream video, within 10-15 minutes of the video starting my wireless connection will go from Connected to Limited or No Connectivity. If I am doing anything else on the web, be it reading web pages, streaming audio, or anything else that does NOT involve video I will stay connected.

Here's where things get stranger, when I go into Network & Sharing Center to try to repair the connection, I'm unable to do so. If I try to disconnect from the network, Network & Sharing Center will stop responding and cause Windows Explorer to crash. Checking the culprit of the crash I noted that svchost.exe is causing the system to crash. Once Windows Explorer restarts, I'm able to use the computer normally, except when I try to get back into Network & Sharing Center, Windows Explorer will stop responding and crash. The only way I can resolve this is to restart the computer.

I originally thought that this was an issue to a recent Windows Update, so I performed a System Restore to before the updates, which did not resolve the issue. I'll be happy to provide any more information if asked later on, and any advice would be helpful.

Hello everyone. Thanks for taking time to read this, I really appreciate it.

So, here's how it goes. All of a sudden, I've been having strange video streaming issues with my laptop. I've had it for about eight months now, and everything has always worked just fine. Now, when going to places like Youtube, Hulu, Comedy Central, Megavideo etc, the buffering is just not happening well at all. I could watch 90 minute videos in 720p on Youtube and would never have an issue. I've tested the video in IE (ugh) and it all seems to be working fine. But I can't go back to IE. I just can't stand it. I've gotten spoiled with AdBlock and I can never go back. (Tested with AdBlock uninstalled as well, with no luck.)

So far I've uninstalled and reinstalled Flash and Firefox. Reset my computer, and router. Cleared cache, temp files, history. I am fully optimized with zero viruses or spyware of any kind. Always defrag-ed and all that maintenance jazz.

Win 7 Home Premium 64bit
1.6 Dual Core Pentium
Nvidia Geforce 410 or 420 laptop card or some such nonsense

Any advice would be wonderful. Thank you for your time.

Hi guys,

This is my first post on this forum and it looks like a ocean of knowledge, which is what I've been looking for.

I've have an issue with a friends PC that I said I would look into for him.

Basically he can open video files mpeg, avi, mov etc... when loading them from his hdd but as soon as he goes online to say bbci player, youtube, myspace etc he cannot view the video and his PC locks up and you have to pull the power to restart as task manager won't open to close the browser.

He's tried explorer and mozilla but the problem appears on both browsers.

Strange thing is if the stream is set to open with mediaplayer it runs fine, so it's leading me to believe that it's a codec issue.

I've set default player as mediaplayer but still BBCi player won't I've sorted him out with the lastest Divx and drivers/firmware versions for all hardware.

I know youtube uses a flash player so is there a specific codec for media player to run flash streams?

All comments welcome as I'm starting to rn out of ideas.

Thanks for reading.

Then CCleaner

Then to go to http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/flash/trigger/en/3/index.html and install the latest Flash Player

Then update your Java

Then run the defaults on your personal Firewall (or uninstall, for the moment)
Also confirm you don't have another background pogram running like Spybots S&D

Then (after a restart or two) try the video pages again

Still faulty?

I have for the last four days been experiencing some extremely slow video streaming problems with all website involving flash (netflix, youtube, hulu, etc.). The video will play for about 2 minutes and then stop, then play again for 2 minutes, then stop. Buffering is extremely slow, even with my network operating at the same speed. This problem started happening when adobe flash updated to version 10.3.181.26.

I went through a series of steps I will describe below.

Here is a description of my system:
ASUS UL50AT Notebook
Windows 7 64 bit
Mobile Intel (R) Series 4 Express Chipset - with latest driver 8.15.10.2302 (2/11/11) - 1 GB
Adobe Flash version 10.3.181.34 (updated)
2.52 Mbps download, 1.52 Mbps upload speed (AT&T DSL)
Firefox 5.0 and IE 9.0.8112.1611
2GB RAM (only about 10% used during heavy internet use)

I started out by cleaning my cache and registry. I did so on firefox cleaning out everything, then went on my Registry Mechanic and did the same thing. Didn't fix it.

I then updated my graphics card driver to the latest version (as in above). It is surprising to me that their latest driver is from 2/11/11, but that was the latest they had.

I tried using IE instead of firefox with netflix, hulu, and youtube. Got the same issue.

I tried streaming video without my wireless card, going directly through my router via ethernet cable. Video streaming issues persisted. Also did a speed test and got same results as with wi... Read more

Howdy and Hey, I recently upgraded to WMP 10 , since doing so I have lost the ability to watch videos on the web. I can watch the ads before the video but when it starts the video just goes " buffering 00/100% " never plays buffers for about 2 minutes, with no increase in percentage, then flips to "playing 0:00/ 4:28" , but never plays anything. Black screen and no audio. If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it. I have tried numerous times with firewall turned off anti-virus shut down and everstuff, no dice!

Hi guys,

Not sure if this is the place to post this issue but here goes:

When i try to watch videos (streaming from websites) the video and sound are in sync with each other. However after about 15 minutes in, they start to get out of sync and it gets progressively worse as time goes on. (The sound comes through about 2-3 seconds before the video). Is there anything i can do about this problem? i'm fairly sure my laptop is up to the challenge as it is a brand new Dell Inspiron with dual-core processor running Vista.

Any Suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello! To keep it long story short, when using websites to stream videos with a friend it lags on my end which makes the video skip around and overall do other unpleasant things. This lag is not present when I watch videos with myself, and this happens on both firefox and chrome. I used to be able to stream without any problems, but this has been happening for atleast a good month or 3 now and I haven't done anything except for switch which browser I use. I've tried cleaning my web browser, cleaning up my computer, switching from wireless to wired internet, etc. My notebook is currently wired to a modem that is hooked up to the "family" computer, a desktop using windows 7.
A list of streaming websites I use and the symptoms I experience are
watch2gether.com and mycircle.com - Video pauses without me touching anything. When I sent a message in chat, it doesn't appear until seconds later.
watch2gther.com only - Chat "refreshes" itself (i.e. reloads everything said).
mycircle.com - Getting "sync aborted" messages. When I refresh the page the only thing that loads is the top banner and a blank chat.

I have e-mailed mycircle.com about what was going on, they said
The problem you describe seems to be linked to a saturation of the memory used by the processes of your browser while using mycircle.Click to expand...

Hi all,

i hope somebody can help me...

My computer is a HP Laptop Model Number DV2815EA running windows vista 32 bit. Its a few years old.

Recently i have had problems with my wireless adapter turning itself off whenever i watch videos online. It doesn't happen all the time, but if i am watching something for more than an hour it will cut off. There is a blue light and a switch on the front of the laptop, and when the wireless adapter is off, the light changes to red.

The light will change to red sometimes whilst watching video, and the only way i can turn the wireless back on is if i restart the system. Even if i activate and disable the wireless adapter using the external manual switch, or the internal controls using the wireless assistant.

As you can imagine this gets very annoying when i am mid way through a show and it cuts out!

Also, not sure if this is relevant but i can no longer either watch videos on full screen as the image gets jolty.

Things i have tried;

1) restoring the system to a previous restore point - i tried this but for some reason the only restore points i could find were ones dated after i started noticing the problem.

2) reinstalling the wireless adapter driver and video card driver.

3) running a full 6 hour antivirus scan - I am using Eset NOD32 antivirus and also i scanned using comodo cleaning essentials.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

I'm posting this here cause I really don't know where it's rightful home should be!

I recently purchased the Philips SLA5520 to stream my music from my PC (in upstairs bedroom) on my home cinema in the sitting room. Basically it didn't work. When I finally got it to list the songs on my PC, it just wouldn't play them! I got my money back!

So now what I'm after is something similar, but I don't want to stop it there, I want to be able to stream video clips and my photos also.

I know there are systems out there that do this, but I dont know what they are and which is the best. I don't want to have to bring it back again so I don't mind spending a few quid if it is worth it. Also wondering if the best solution is to buy a new home cinema with wireless technology built into it?

My laptop was originally a windows 8 laptop. When the Windows 10 update became available, I downloaded and installed it. However, i began to have wireless connectivity problems. Around every 10 - 15 mins, the laptop would lose internet connectivity. It would not disconnect from the router, but rather a yellow triangle would appear in the taskbar icon indicating no internet connectivity. I searched and searched for a solution, and eventually came across uninstalling the network adapter (so it coul dindtall the base version) through Device Manager. This woroked very well and I no longer had this problem; it would only re appear when i would update Windows 10. When this occured i would simply just uninstall the driver again and it would work out. This process worked for about a year or so. I eventually blocked Windows 10 updates as I couldnt be bothered to keep repeating this process. Recenrly, I updated my windows 10 version and there were some notable differences with the layout and etc. The connectivity issues reappaered so i tried to uninstall the driver like before but this time it would not work. Regardless of the network driver installed, the connectivity issues persisted. Now I am slumped and have no idea what to do. Is there any help available?

Hey all,
This is my first post here and it's a doozy. Let me first start with a little bit of background and topology. I have a medium-sized 1 bedroom apartment with RoadRunner and a Linksys 802.11G wireless access point serving up 2 desktop computers and up to 3 laptops. My problem lies with my high-end desktop computer. I'm running a linksys 802.11G pci card with antenna.

My problem is this: My Windows XP computer drops my wireless connection. I've rebuilt the computer probably 10 times in the past 2 weeks and it's one of the most odd problems I've seen and I've seen a lot as a Net/Sys Admin at Cornell University. It's odd. It first started about 2.5 weeks ago and the OS was about 6 months old. I put it off and finally re-installed XP. It ran fine for the first 2 weeks and bam-o, it happened again. Since I was getting the same symtoms with two different builds of Windows, it lead me to believe it was a hardware problem. So, I went out and purchased a netgear 802.11G wireless NIC. I installed it on the same OS that the linksys dropped signal. Worked great. For a week. Then the same symptoms arrived. "View Available Wireless Networks" balloon would pop up. I'd hit it to see the wifi nets around and sometimes I'd see mine, sometimes not. If I saw it, I'd try to connect to no avail. So I went back to the linksys card, this time putting the Netgear antenna on it and putting the card in a different PCI slot. I then re-i... Read more

A:Serious Wireless Net Connectivity Issues

Check the event viewer (Start-->Run-->"eventvwr.msc") and see if there is a process that stops or a system event that may be causing this issue Suspect.

How is everything firewalled internally? Do you have SSID enabled? Do any of the other machines exhibit this behaviour?

The fact that things seem to run with some degree of stability until apps/software is loaded suggests something might be causing a glitch.

Have you downloaded all the latest updates for the NICs? Also there may well be a firmware update for the wireless router - it may be worth checking with Linksys.

Also are you using the software supplied with the NICs to handle the wireless connection? A lot of the time, allowing Windows to handle it isn't necessarily beneficial.

Check that you do not have 'Enable IEEE 802.11g authentication' checked in the network settings - this feature is known to cause problems and isn't really required if you have the correct security protocols in place.

Hope some of this helps, even if it is obvious!

Here's my problem. My neighbor is a bit younger than I. He's a networking student at the local ITT. I recently graduated with a degree in IT-CNS. Here's what I've run into. I just recently moved my wireless router into the south end of the house. It's now back in the living room. It was put back there shortly after I discovered I could not connect. I called my neighbor and asked him if he was playing around with my equipment. All he said was "Airsnort... good luck with the password." It's a 2wire and I haven't had much experience with them. D-Link, Linksys, Netgear, not a problem. Any idea of how I could recover my network key, and or administrator's password. Do 2Wire's even use the typical interface found on store-bought units? I've never had to mess with it. Help me out guys. I just need to get a foot in the right direction. SBC's saying that I was sharing internet access with a neighbor, and providing no support for the issue based on that fact.

Hey guys,

I was forced to move my desktop to my room, all the way upstairs and basically to the most opposite corner of the house away from the router. Okay.. so, I know our laptop can get a connection in the room right outside of my room. When I get home today I'll check if it can get it inside my room as well.

What I'm asking is, since I already know the signal strength is probably going to be weak from my room, What is a powerful pci or usb wireless card that will grab the signal that's all the way downstairs? (Money isn't an object. but I;m not paying like $500, lol)
p.s.
I heard there are some that will get you on the interent fine, but when you try and play a game like World of Warcraft, you will be disconnecting constantly. -- The reason I say money isn't an object is because I am willing to pay more to avoid such things.

Thanks a billion guys!!!!

Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a some examples.

Hawking [HAI7SIP] Hi-Gain 7dBi Omni-Directional Antenna

Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna

Hi all,

I'm fighting my ignorance here with a wireless connectivity problem and would greatly appreciate any help.

I have a home network system with two computers hard-wired to the router via ethernet cables and one laptop computer in another room that I'm having trouble with a low connectivety problem via wireless connection.

My wireless router is a Linksys WRT-54G. The laptop is a Dell Latitude D800 with XP-Pro.

I was somewhat successful with regard to the initial setup by entering the laptop's MAC address into the MAC Filter on the router as well as entering the Network Key (WEP). So now the laptop does connect to the router, however, I can't connect to the internet.

The pop-up bubble from the Wireless Network Connection icon in the system tray says: "Speed: 36.0 Mbps, Signal Strength: Low, Status: Limited or No Connectivity".

When I used the "Repair" feature it returned the following error message;

"Windows could not finish reparing the problem because the following action could not be completed: Renewing your IP address.
For assistance, contact the person who manages your network."

(The Techspot format would not allow me to insert the actual error image here because I have less than 5-posts).

Is this a router / strength issue or a settings issue with not recognizing the I.P. address?

Thanks again in advance for any help. I really appreciate it!
 

A:Wireless connectivity issues.

The problem is a settings issue, but the strength issue is probably not.
Uninstall your Wireless, and use RegClean or other registry editor to remove all samples of it in the registry.
Then reboot and reinstall.
The LinkSys WRT54G is a rugged unit... not as fast as some, but very reliable.
Follow the instructions in the LinkSys downloadable repair guide exactly, and use your standard WEp, but avoid the other stuff for now.
Be sure your LinkSys install software is for the correct version, and download any updates.
Test and setup by having the receiving computer in the same room until you are sure it is working correctly by the repair info.
Once installed, Use a long ethernet CAT5 or Cat6 cable... of 14 feet to 16 feet or longer...
Then move both devices around their respective rooms. Sometimes five inches makes a big difference... keep the LinkSys at least 12 inches away from any wall or ceiling for the tests.
Once it works properly when five or six feet away, move the laptop back to the other room.
Too often, there is a metal mesh on the walls used to plaster the room. That will cause low speed. Others have sprayed on coatings that have tiny aluminum foil strips, or foil "sparkles" embedded in the paint or wall covering.
But usually moving the devices around a bit takes care of the problem once you get them working in the same room.
I assume you have updated the Latitude D800 drivers from the Dell site, and that the laptop does not detect any other spurious sign... Read more

Hi,

I have quite much trouble with my WiFi when I'm trying to connect to wireless networks. There are like 3 or 4 kind of problems, which occur at quite random intervals, and are really annoying.
My problems:
I start my windows 8, and try to connect to a wifi, but it says it cannot connectIt connects seemingly (the wifi icon on the taskbar turns white, and Networks says connected), but when i hover over the wifi icon, it says either Identifying, or Not Connected- Connections are availbleIt says Limited, and after a while it either turns into connected, with internet access, or just throws it away.While trying to connect, Networks says Connecting to the network is taking longer than usual, and either simply disconnects, or connects with Limited.
These problems happen usually when i try to connect to my universitys network (it has two networks, an Open network with Mac address filtering, and one with WPA2 Enterprise with EAP-TTLS and PAP) but sometimes it also happens when i try to join my home network (it's a WPA 2 hidden network), and I think this happens almost every time when i start my computer from sleep mode, and sometimes when i boot it from shut down.

I've tried fixing it on the long term with installing windows 7 drivers, reinstalling windows 8 drivers, letting windows search for his own required drivers, troubleshooting it with the official troubleshooter but nothing really solved the issue.

I think you might be on the right track with the University multiple networks security settings that might be the root of your problem which has somehow corrupted your wifi protocol stack. Try rebooting your homes network router by unplugging it from the AC outlet for 2 minutes and then plugging it back in. This might help you solve your home wifi issues.

As far as your University's wifi, you'll have to contact their network administrator for support for that issue on there end.

I have a Mac Power PC G4 (500 MHz) that is running version 10.4.10. It's connected to the internet via cable modem and works just fine. A few years ago a friend installed a D-Link DI-524 wireless router and networked this computer to my very ancient PC that's running NT. This still works fine. I can access files from the old machine. As a note, the PC and Mac are wired into the router.

The problem lies in trying to connect a Gateway laptop running XP via the wireless. The laptop sees my network and the signal strength shows 5 bars, but when I try to connect, it won't work. I have entered the correct WEP password on the laptop, but to no avail. I even reset the router (per the instructions on the D-Link support page), but it still isn't working.

I know that the wireless used to work on said friend's laptop. I have not changed any settings since he set the original network up.

The other bizarre thing is that when trying to network my Wii, the network doesn't show up there at all-- even in the same room where the laptop is finding the network. I've tried doing a manual setup on the Wii, but it claims the network isn't there.

Any suggestions or help would be most appreciated-- I'm about ready to throw everything out!

Preface: I'm not a really tech savvy person to begin with but I can get by with good instruction. Onto my problem...

I have a HP laptop that is actually a really solid, fast laptop but it is a few years old. It's an HP Pavilion dv7 1135nr and I was working on sprucing up a bit as it's in great working shape so I got a new hard drive (WB Caviar Black) and updated it to Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.

At the same time I tweaked my wireless router/modem settings (a Motorola SBG900 Surfboard). I went from wireless b/g to wireless g enhanced.

My phone, my wife's laptop, and my desktop all connect just fine and fly on wireless g. Now that my HP laptop is up and running it won't connect at all though.

I'm wondering if this is a driver issue, a network issue, or if there is a possibility that the wireless card in my laptop just isn't capable of accepting a "wireless g enhanced" wireless connection.

In my device manager the network adapters are listed as Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter and Realtek RTL8102E/RTL8103E Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20). I've tried via Device Manager to update the drivers for each but it says they're both already up to date. Should I attempt to find the specific drivers online and update manually, or am I just plain equipment limited and stuck on staying on wireless b/g (my phone is horribly slow on wireless b/g)?

Thanks a ton for any help.

Hi, I recently purchased a new Gateway P-7805u FX Edition laptop, which uses an Intel WiFi Link 5100 (updated with the latest driver) to connect to wireless networks. I am running Vista Home Premium. However, the computer has a lot of trouble connecting to my wireless network at home, which is relayed through a Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B router to all the computers in my house. The router is working, because two other desktops in my house both connect fine. What happens with the laptop is when I try to connect to the home network (which has no security on it, so the problem isn't WEP related or anything), it will either

1) connect with "limited connectivity," and be unusable .
2) connect but the internet is so slow it is unusable (takes over a minute to load one page) and then it will turn off after a while.
3) simply not connect at all.

I have updated the driver for the laptop's wireless card, but when I try to update the Linksys router's driver to the latest one (downloaded from the linksys website), the upgrade freezes in the middle of it, and the router's firmware is still listed as the old one (1.45.3) when I refresh the page. So, the router's firmware might be too old for the laptop (the firmware is from Jul 2003), but for some reason I can't update the router's firmware.

To begin, I apologise if this has been asked/answered previously, I checked several pages of this forum and didn't see it. I'm using a D-Link DIR-625 Rangebooster Wireless N router on my cable wired computer, and a D-Link DWA-542 desktop adaptor card on my wireless comp. Both comps have SP2 installed and the firmware is up to date on the D-Link products. The issue is that my wireless comp loses the wireless signal intermittently, despite being WPA protected. This happens on a regular basis. The physical distance is about 50 feet apart, and there are no walls or obstructions between the router and the wireless comp. I upgraded my phone system so the 2.4 issue isn't the problem. I'm wondering if a "repeater" would solve this issue but prior to spending money, thought I'd see if any you "comp guru's" have any ideas on this. When it's working, the tool tray icon indicates that the signal strength is "low" and that the speed is 300 Mbps. I should also mention that I have a Vonage telephone router hooked up at the "wired" comp. (if this matters). BTW, I use the connection for internet access only, there is no file sharing etc. If you require any other info, please let me know. Currently, what I have to do to correct this problem is unplug the cable modem, D-Link router, and the Vonage router, wait about 10 - 15 seconds, plug everything back in, and the connection is fine (until it goes out again, lol).

Hi all, i've been having some huge issues with wireless connectivity recently on my laptop. I have moved home for the holiday season from college, and I am now running a wireless network in my home. I have a Pavilion zd8205US laptop in my room. Downstairs, I have a D-Link DI-524 Wireless Router, and also an iMac directly connected nearby with a wired connection. I am running Windows XP SP2 on my laptop, with a Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN wireless card.

Now, my heres my problem: It shows that I have excellent signal strength and that I am connected, but I have trouble browsing the web, and using any internet-connection oriented program, such as AIM or online gaming. My connection is constantly interrupted, even while simply browsing online. I've tried contacting HP for support, but nothing they've offered has worked. I just don't understand, because I have excellent signal strength, why would it be interrupted so often?

I've been told it has something to do with my TCP/IP settings, but I have no idea where to even start on editing them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Before I begin, I'd like to note that I'm not incredibly experienced when it comes to computers, and the information I give you may not be thorough enough. If that is the case, please ask for any extra necessary information and how to get it, if you'd so please. Thanks.

I bought a Dell Inspiron 1545 December 19th of last year, with Windows 7 Home Premium. I didn't get an opportunity to use the internet on it until after Christmas, I connected wirelessly to a linksys router with no problems. After using it for a few hours, I was disconnected and the router would not appear on my search. I then hardwired my computer with an ethernet cable to get it to work, with no problems. I then stayed a week at a resort, in which I could select connections but I'd only get limited connectivity on every one. Once again, I was able to hardwire it.

I'm back at school and I'm still unable to get a connection without limited connectivity. I've tried several different places to try to connect, all giving me limited connectivity.

I'm not sure how I successfully used wireless for a few hours then for it to stop working altogether, but I'm in desperate need for it to be fixed.

Thanks for your time everyone and as I said, if you need more info, please ask.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 laptop and I use wireless internet at home and when I am in my dorm for college. For the past couple of months, I have been having connection problems. It started all of a sudden one day without me doing anything. My drivers are up to date.

My connection always claims to be connected excellent at 48-56 mbps, but I notice timeouts/dropped connections with several things. AIM will disconnect and reconnect every 10-15 minutes and often I will just not receive some IMs from people. Sometimes when I am downloading things, the download will freeze somewhere before the end and will not allow me to start over. And when I try to watch videos (I'm not tech savvy and don't know what to call them--but things like on Youtube where the video slowly downloads while you watch it) the video will load to a certain point before the end, freeze, and not continue.

I'm seen lots of posts about this on other forums, but have not been able to find any clear answers on what to do. Can someone help me? Thanks very much.

Hi,
I am new here. My problem is this: I have wireless in my home; I have a desktop & laptop & a work laptop sometimes; all Windows XP.
About a month ago, my ISP came to the house and upgraded the radio on the outside antenna. Since then, I keep losing my webpages( page not found); like they time out. However, the wireless is still connected. My ISP insists that it is something with my equipment.
I removed the wireless router from the system completely & connected directly to the cable to outside antenna but the same thing happens. This happens with all PCs. Is it possible that this upgrade has changed something? I have checked all my settings; tried obtain IP address on auto & also put it in manually with no difference. I could be on a page, as an example, filling out many pages of an application and get half way through when the page would go off line. If I wait a while, I can get back on but later on it happens again.
This is quite perplexing, the provider says the signal is good from their side but I don't think they see it when it goes off line; it seems like a power problem when the page may time out or something.
Please help.
Thanks

Hey all,

I am having issues with my Dell Inspiron 1520 using a Dell 1390 WLan card and my DI-624 router.

My computer randomly loses connection from the router. Sometimes it will disconnect entirely showing the wireless icon with the red "X" and other times it will show as being connected but going to/pinging any site (including the router) times out until I run a repair operation on the wireless card or reboot the wireless card using the WLan on/off switch on the computer.

I thought it was an issue with my laptop (which is part of a domain but not a domain on the wireless network) but other than Group Policy & Net Time refresh errors, there are no network related errors. The laptop also does not have issues on other networks (which are also not a part of the domain the laptop is in)

I tried playing with the router wireless settings including changing the network channel, the WPA2 settings from TKIP to AES and back, DHCP, etc. Its strange because it's almost like the connection times out but I cant figure out how/why.

Any help?
 

A:DLink DI-624 Wireless Connectivity issues

Some things you can try here.
For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
For wireless connections, try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.
Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

Anyway, managed to fix that by flushing the DNS and restarting and reinstalling the drivers for my Belkin Wireless G PCI Desktop card.

Now I seem to be getting random packet loss and generally slow internet speeds, I know there's something wrong somewhere (and Windows 7 thinks there is as it keeps resetting the network card, but that doesn't work) when pinging my router I get 1/4 packets lost and similar for pinging google, never 4/4.

When I plug my computer directly into the cable modem I have no connectivity speed issues and get 100 Mbps. When I go wireless my speed goes from 32 Mbps down to 5.5 Mbps back and forth spending more time at the low end of the spectrum. I have done a hard reset on my cable modem and have done the disconnect from power for 10+ minutes on my Belkin and no resolution.

Is my problem with my cable modem, my Belkin, or something else? Any ideas of how to fix this issue?
 

A:Belkin Wireless or Cable Modem connectivity issues

Top suspect is wireless interference. Some things you can try here, listed in the order you should try them.
For wireless connections, remove all the stored wireless profiles and search for networks. You'll have to enter the encryption key again, which is sometimes the issue for connection problems.
For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
For wireless connections, try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.

2. How might I be able to tell if my '120 Speedtouch' wireless adapter has some kind of cap on how much information it is aloud to recieve?

It seems to happen randomly. I'm working alone for 3 to 4 days and one morning it just decides not to connect. I got my desktop, phone and tablet all able to connect without any problems. - The second issue is with the bluetooth. As soon as I connect my sony bluetooth headphones the wireless internet connection drops. The onyl way to reconnect to the internet is to disconnect the bluetooth headphones. So I can either have wireless internet or the bluetooth headphones but not both at the same time. - The last problem is that through out the day the wireless connection randomly drops. Try loading a webpage and the browser gives me a connection error but the laptop says it's connected. Only after I disconnect and reconnect the laptop that I can start browsing again. I've uninstalled and reinstalled both the hp and intel drivers.

I have a Lenovo B570 laptop running Windows 7. After restarting my computer yesterday, I haven't been able to connect to the internet at all, either through wireless or with a cable. Available wireless networks are showing as usual, but whenever I try to connect I just get a message saying "the connection was unsuccessful." I have tried both on home and work wireless networks and a wired connection at work with no success, but other laptops can get access with no problem. (So it's definitely my computer and not a router issue.)

When I try to use "Windows Network Diagnostics" to troubleshoot the problem it tells me that "There might be a problem with the driver" for both the wireless and local access network adapters. When I tell Windows to resolve the problem it says "The wireless network adapter is experiencing problems" and then offers me no further assistance. That adapter is Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter (and I can give the driver version if that makes any difference).
