I'm having a wifi issue. My wifi signal will all of the sudden stop seeing available networks and my wifi connection will say "connected, no internet access." This issue does not occur with any other device I own.  I've tried: - turning my wifi adapter on and off - using the network troubleshooter, all this came up with was an error that says "network cable broken or not plugged in."       - i don't have an ethernet cord plugged in - searching for an update to the network driver - uninstalling and reinstalling the network driver       - this serves only as a temporary fix ( 5-10 mins) - uninstalled and reinstalled with a driver that was downloaded online - turning off bluetooth and ethernet connection options under "change adapter options" none of these have resolved the issue and i'm out of options. Also, sometimes the wifi icon in the system tray will disappear along with the driver for the network adapter.

My wife's HP ENVY m6-1125dx PC using Windows 8 with Ralink RT5390R 802.11 bgn wifi adapter would lose wifi connection with the VERIZON FIOS Actiontec MI424WR router after 13-14 minutes; plugging the ethernet cable in would regain internet access, or restarting the PC but the issue would return in 13-14 minutes. My Toshiba laptop, using Windows 7, stayed connected when my wife's laptop lost its wifi connection. The other devices in our house (Wii, TIVO, printer, etc.) had no connection issues. Interestingly, my wife's laptop had no wifi connection losses with other hotspots (Best Buy aka Geek Squad, McDonalds, Starbucks, Panera, etc); so this issue was specifically between the Ralink wifi adapter and the Actiontec router wifi.

Just updating the laptop wifi adapter driver did not fix the issue. HOWEVER, uninstalling the driver then reinstalling the latest wifi adapter driver from the HP website seems to have fixed the issue. Also installed the Intel Wireless Drivers for Microsoft Window 8 from the HP website.

Hello,  I wanted to clear some issues about my HP Pavilion laptop, I have searched online and most things havent worked for me, I have realised that my wifi usually goes to limited connectivity when either I take my laptop off my lap and place onto my bed (perhaps its because the fans cannot push the hot air out because they are being blocked?) and when I put my charger in. To temporarily fix this I have been going onto the "Network and Sharing Centre" and disabling and re-enabling my wifi, however sometimes I have noticed that I disable it and when I try to re-enable it stays as disabled so.. I hope someone from the support team can help me out, thanks.

Hello guys,

I am having some issues with my internet lately.

I am using an "ARRIS SURFboard SBG6580 Docsis 3.0 Cable Modem and Wi-Fi N600 Router". My laptop is a Dell Studio 1558 and running Windows 7.

Issue : While being connected to the internet network via wifi, I get "no internet access" after browsing the internet for 20-30 minutes. I get the "wifi yellow caution" icon. Thereafter I disconnect from my network and then reconnect to the same network. Instantly I get wifi access when I reconnect.

This keeps on happening at first every 10-15 minutes, after a while it happens every 2-3 minutes.

I also connected to this internet Wifi network with my HP Elitebook laptop running Windows 7. I get "no internet access" as well on this laptop after initial 20 minute use. Then I have to disconnect and reconnect the network. Wifi starts working instantly.

Interestingly, the Dell and HP never simultaneously go on "no internet access".

On my cell phone running android, I very rarely see any drop in wifi while connected to this network.

To test if my Laptop wireless card was functioning properly, I connected it to my cell phone hotspot (different network) for 3 hours. Absolutely no drop in connectivity.

My suspicion is that there is something going on with my Modem/Router settings. Can someone please help me with this ?

Hi,
Thank you for writing to the Dell Community Forum.
The Dell XPS 13 9350 system goes with two different options of wireless card. The Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 and the Dell Wireless 1820A. Use another system and please go to the our support site using this link http://dell.to/1TvnfOs, enter the service tag of the system. Under original system configuration, check for the wireless card. Then click on Driver and Downloads, choose the operating system. Click on the Network and download the file, transfer it on to a USB drive. Use this drive on the Dell XPS 13 9350 system, install the driver and check the status. You may also check the device manager to see, if there is any ! or ? mark in the list.
Kindly get back if there are any further queries.

Hello all! I hope I'm not breaking any rules by doing this, but I had an issue over the weekend where my PC wouldn't connect to the internet, and it took me hours to fix! I wanted to post what I did here in this forum since this popped up in the Google search most often so others can find it. Also I can't figure out how to put the SOLVED icon in the title, can an admin help? Thanks.

Some brief background; I'm running an old HP Compaq 6730s with Windows Vista Business 32-BIT that still runs pretty well. I decided to clean it up a bit and went and deleted a bunch of programs including Comodo Firewall, I'm inclined to believe my issue was caused by the sudden deletion of this program (maybe old setting still in effect causing a conflict, etc) but I'm not certain. After restarting my computer I could see networks in my area but could not fully connect to them. The windows diagnostic tool said it was either a hardware issue with my Intel Wifilink 5100 AGN or the IPV4 and IPV6 needed to be switch on. Which they already were.

The most prevalent things that I did that seemed to fix the issue in no particular order

1. Run scf/scannow through the Command Prompt window as an administrator.
2. Run a chain in Command Prompt 'netsh int ip reset' as a administrator.
2. Went to the Network & Sharing Center, Manage Connections and right-click on the primary wireless connection and go to properties.

Hey all, I'm not a tech savvy person to begin with so I don't know how to fix this. So I connect my wifi to my laptop and it work works fine then I'll turn it off for the day and boom network is gone, it's not a router or
Modem issue, because every other device works, and I can't even open that network tab to show the available networks. If anyone knows please help me out! Thank you!

A couple of days ago I recently bought a brand new HP windows 10 laptop. When I connected it to my WiFi it would keep dropping out/not recognising and connections and showed a weak signal if I was more than a metre away from the router.I'm trying to figure out if this is an issue with the laptop or not as I've tried updating drivers etc and nothing worked. The WiFi has worked fine on other routers but other devices in my house connect easily to the router I'm having difficulty with.

I just got a new laptop (Acer Aspire One 756) and keep having an issue with the internet connection not being able to connect after the computer sleeps or hibernates for a few hours. It usually says identifying network... no internet access. I copied and pasted the trouble shooting that I did below. It still works if I restart or the computer sleeps or hibernates for less than an hour or so. The other computer and devices that use this connection work fine when mine isn't working. I can fix this problem by restarting the router and it works fine again. It's just annoying to have to restart the router a few times a day. It also only does this with my network at home. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network adapter with the most updated driver, power cycling the router and all the devices, changing the network adapter settings to do not turn this device off to save power, and resetting the Winsock like I've seen on other forum posts. None of these has worked so far. The router is a dlink WBR-1310 and it's pretty old. My wireless network adapter is a Qualcomm Atheros AR5B125.

You have covered most angles - shutting the router down doesn't actually reset the router there is generally a small button you need to push in with a pen and hold it in for a specified time about between 5 and 10 seconds - then you have to reconnect it to the internet as everything is set to default settings - this is done by typing in an address eg 192.168.0.1 in a browser and this opens the router settings - you can download the manual from the dlink site which will have details on how to - generally you just use the auto settings.

I have found with my router if it isn't anything major you can just turn off the pc /laptop turn off the router - wait a minute -then turn it back on - wait for all the lights are up and running then turn on pc/laptop.

I am having trouble with connecting to a wifi connection via my lap top. The lap top I run has windows XP. The host computer runs Xp as well. SOme days I can connect no problem with great speeds and other times it wont connect at all. It does show that I have (GOOD) signal to the wireless router, so maybe its something with the modem??? It goes day by day and I can not pinpoint exactly why this issue occurs so randomly.
Perhaps you have come across this trouble before.
Any questions feel free to ask.
Thanks
Ryan~

I have a pocket wi-fi being shared by 3 laptops.. I want to connect a Zyxel Wireless N-lite Home Router so that I can also plug-in other LAN connected devices, e.g. VOIP phone. Is there a way to connect it or are there other devices I need for this internetworking. By the way, currently the router is connected to WiMAX broadband modem which I want disconnected already due to low available bandwidth.

The laptops OS are XP, Vista and Windows 7 and MacOS.

Thanks very much guys and more power to you.

I have 2 USB wifi adapters. They both work fine in my computer connecting to building routers. I work on computers for charities and people that cannot afford outside repairs. On one of these the adapters were working fine. Suddenly they will connect withe router and not the internet. They were working fine and as I stated earlier they are used to connect to the same routers that I normally use.

I've been having wifi connectivity problems for the past 8 months. I can connect for a solid 30 seconds before it says limited then no internet. I've done every troubleshooting possible, and no one will help me resolve this issue. I reset my computer (lost all my apps) hoping that it would resolve and no luck. AND after resetting it no longer has sound capabilities.

hi i am having a problem when it comes to wifi connectivity, when i am away [not too far away] from the router my signal drops and sometimes cannot be connected. i check the device manager>NETWORK ADAPTERS and i see RALINK RT3290802.11bgn Wi-Fi adapter, then i check the other laptop [windows 7] at our house which has a broadcom wifi adapter.. I am thinking if it is possible that i uninstall the RALINK RT3290802.11bgn Wi-Fi adapter on my windows 8 and replace itwith broadcom (is this possible?will i get problems or compatibility issues?)

It helps to know what the manufacturer & model of the router is. Also with laptops. The antenna is just a small piece of foil with a small rectangular section that is the actual antenna. Some people have found using a USB adapter with an external antenna helps to improve connection to routers that are set at lower power by the manufacturer, or the manufacturer uses low -db antennas on their equipment.

Also try changing the Wifi channel on your router to Channel 1 or 5 if they are not as congested. You can check for how congested the airwaves are, by using inSSIDer.

Good evening,

I have recently been having an issue with my WiFi. Ive never had this problem before, not sure why it just started up. Anytime the laptop goes to sleep or is shut and re-opened, it loses the WiFi connectivity. I can manually reconnect with no problem, its just a hassle. Ive checked my drivers and made sure the auto-connect box was checked. Ive checked the power settings. The machine has been restarted, but nothing helps. I'm not sure what happened that changed the pc. Any help is appreciated!

Thank you.

Mods - I'm sorry if this is in the wrong category.

A:Help needed with WiFi connectivity

Right click the five bar connection icon in bottom-right System Tray, run Troubleshooter on wireless adapter.

Update the Wireless driver from the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC. Uninstall and do not use any Dell Wireless Manager software which interferes with the superior Win7 manager.

If you have not yet done a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 I would read over those steps to consider it soon.

I have also been having connectivity issues, as described above, for the last couple of months.  This week it has gotten worse and today, the connection is almost non-existant.  I have had the same HP computer for about 2 years and the same internet provider. I tried both solutions mentioned by PragmaticS and ccJohn. I got connected for about 5 minutes and then lost it again. I have a streaming TV service and a chromebook which are connected with no issues. I have been a faithful HP customer up to this point but now I'm not so sure. Shocking that so many people with this same model are having this problem and HP doesn't seem to care.
