Hi,

I?m hoping someone smarter than me can help me out with this. I have recently built a Windows 7 system. All of the relevant system information is included in my profile. The system was set-up and working perfectly until yesterday when the internet decided it didn?t want to work anymore. The connection started intermittently dropping out and I had to repair the connection. Once the adapter was reset it seemed ok. As of last night however the connection would not reset properly. I was getting all sorts of errors, sometimes it would say that it could not repair the connection, sometimes i would get a message saying the local adapter was having driver or hardware issues sometimes it was saying that my Network Key was wrong despite the fact it?s the same key it has been using to connect to the network before. I have done a hard reset on the router (i don?t think this is the problem as i am sat on a laptop next to the PC using the same connection with no issues.). I have made sure all my drivers are up to date for the wireless adapter and then uninstalled and re-installed the drivers but still having issues. Sometimes the connection seems to be working but only for short periods of time. I am using MSE and windows firewall and have tryed disabling both with no change. Today it has thrown a new one at me. It now says its connected in the system tray with good signal but if i open a browser i get nothing... I am running out of ideas now any suggestions would be greatly appr... Read more

Hi,
Can anyone help me with an issue I am having with my local network?
I connected a Western Digital 500GB USB 3.0 HDD to my Netgear N300 router via the USB readyshare connection so that everyone on the network can have access... BUT
While I can see and access the (readyshare) HDD from my laptop running win7, I cant see or access the (readyshare) HDD from my HTC Android phone or my WDTV Live Media Hub.
The WDTV is connected to the router via Ethernet and successfully connects to the internet, all other devices connect using wireless access. I have the latest firmware.
I performed a search the other day through google and it appears I may need to download an app for the phone to have access to the (readyshare) HDD... ?
I can connect the (readyshare) HDD directly to the WDTV, but it means swapping and changing everytime I want access from a different device.
I have been unable to locate any documentation from Netgear or Western Digital. I would love to smooth out the crinkles on this one as I have plans to upgrade the network storage and incorporate a new desktop into the network.
Any ideas??

Hey everyone, I am not a common poster in the network/web side of this forum. I was wondering if there were any well known ways to speed up broadband connections? I am on a BT home hub in a new build house. The wire comes in at the side of the house and then travels down 1 of the pairs of wire in a Cat5E cable through the house to a phone socket. It then goes into my BT home hub. They predicted 7.5Mb in the area that I am but I am only getting 1.9Mb. Is there anything that could be causing the slow down that I could solve my self?

Thanks in advance, Jack

Sorry me again. I just found this out. Seems a bit odd. I have a HP zt1170 laptop sitting 1 foot away from my old Dell 8100 laptop. I only have 1 wireless card. To access BC's site I have to use my Dell. (b/c of the problem discussed in my other forum post) I noticed that my Dell was connected at a rate from 36kbs-54kbs, but when I put the card in my HP the rate dropped to 5.5kbs-11kbs. I thought that was strange seeing that they are sitting right next to each other. I'm connected thru a D-Link DI 524 router. My card is a Linksys-D. (PC guy told me its the newest avail.) Both laptops have the drivers installed using the same disk that came with the card. I've uninstalled then reinstalled the drives using the disk, on my HP. The driver icon on my taskbar says its a linksys-WPC300N. Is there anyway to tweak the system to increase the connection speed. I don't know if my HP has a hardware issue or a driver issue. It just seems odd that an older unit running the same driver and card would have such a huge advantage in speed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I see a few threads like this, but none exactly like it. I am in a house with 3 others, one has an independent internet, and me and the other guy are trying to share. He gets net fine, but when we route a new cord, or any cord, into my Acer Aspire 5610 laptop it simply says that I am connected to an Unidentified Network, Local Access only, and it has done this since the beginning, even when we were all linked together, they would get net, I would get that, no matter how many cords we switched. I managed to hook up to the network once or twice, but on of them would always have problems, and the only way to fix them would involve me getting screwed somehow. Is there any settings that could be preventing me from finding the network, or more specifically the internet part? I got an IPCONFIG, just in case it'll help. Thanks in advance for any advice.

This is an issue that comes and goes and unfortunately I have no known way to replicate it, sometimes when my computer boots it just won't connect to the network in any way.

Once I've rebooted its fine again. The odd thing about it is that the network connection details window that you can bring up, appears completely blank. I'm running the latest drives from nVidia, so I'm inclined to put it down to windows 7.... but if anyone else has had this problem or a resolution for it I'd much appreciate the help.

Is there a way to reverse setting up a network? I seem to have changed the network of a friend's i had connected to. At first the network was an open one, but after setting it up, it became a network that recquired a security key. We attempted to change it back to the way it was, but failed ._. So, is it possible to basically undo what we had done?

A:Issues with Network Connection...and Such...

Are you saying you secured the wireless on the router?

If thats the case, you can connect directly to it with an ethernet cable and then turn off wireless security...

Or you can hold down the reset button on the router to set it back to factory settings..

On to the question. My roommate and I just had internet from cox communications set up today in our apartment. My laptop had no trouble detecting the wireless router once the tech guy was finished. Later on into the evening my roommate wanted to connect his PC to the router and get on the web as well. His PC cant find the wireless router and I have no idea why.

I clicked on the network icon in the icon menu in the bottom right hand corner by the clock and clicked "connect to a network". When it did not detect a network, I selected the "Set up a wireless network" link at the bottom. Then a list of options popped up and i selected to "Manually connect to a wireless Network" to which I plugged in the SSID, Security Type, Encryption type, and the network password to access the router.

I have a weird problem. I am working in a school, and I get a report that a machine won't connect to the network. When I get to it, it says that the network line is disconnected. So I test the network line by connecting it to a switch and a different pc. It works. Then I used the same network line and the port that it was plugged into and plug it into a different pc. I ping the network card on the local machine and that shows fine. But still it says the network line is disconnected. So I bring it down to my office, plug it in and it works fine. Now if I take it all the way back and plug it in it will work fine. What is causing the trouble.
It is like it is "plugged up" or something. excuse my reasoning on the plugged up. Any help you could give would be great.

Maybe those computers are just lonely and like all the attention you give by carrying them to your office and back.

Before trying all those things you described, how about trying:

1. In Network Connections right click on the connection and select 'repair'; if no go then
2. Restart the computer; if no go then
3. Disconnect the cable and then reconnect it.

Hi,

Please bear with me as I outline my issue with internet connection and network. My connection was unstable which means that the connection/wifi would turn off and on and you can hear the error sound of a failed connection. I would desperately keep connecting through my wifi until I updated the driver via Device Manager and this sorted the issue out but after using a driver booster to update my speakers (which stopped after the update), the driver was updated and plug-ins were cleaned but the internet connection was unstable again and it disrupted my Ricoh Memory card driver that was installed after the BSOD (blue screen of death).

Microsoft website searches and other related performance issues (local area connection problems, etc.) lead me to doing a clean boot, msconfig, chkdsk, etc. My wifi appears and my internet shows access, however, many sites online do not load properly and online games disconnect after five or ten minutes with a connection error. My (Dell) Support Assistant doesn't load because of the connection issue. I have spent days searching for a solution; my laptop is old but I don't have the means to purchase a newer one. I have spent monies for programs designed to look for solutions but the downloads don't work due to the connection problem and many are just added viruses (like the Restoro as advertised on your site).

I would very much appreciate advice and a solution to this hair-tearing issue. Thank you!

Ok...here's the backstory...

I have comcast high speed internet, and about a year ago I got a netgear N150 wireless router from them when I got my new computer. Everything worked like a champ until New Years Eve, when suddenly the connection would keep dropping or not connect at all.

I went through all the usual steps of resetting the router and the modem, etc but that never helped. My internet connection works fine when I'm plugged in to the router with an ethernet cable, and when I'm plugged into the modem box itself.

I figured that possibly something in the router itself has gone bad so I ordered a new one from Comcast. Unfortunately, I am having the same issues with the new router. Computer, printer, ipod, etc all will not connect at all or it does then gets dropped.

Diagnostics from the computer say the wireless card is still working fine, and like I said, none of my devices will connect to it. I'm beginning to think it might be something with the modem box not allowing the connection to the router?!?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Fleurdesel, did you ever get this problem resolved? I am having an uncannily similar problem. My DSL connection was wonky for quite some time but still worked (I would periodically get "Page can not be found" errors despite all four lights being green on the modem, then I'd run a Self Support tools from my ISP, which is AT&T, and the thing would go back to normal.)

After attempting to install a D-Link router, I began to have major problems with DSL connectivity, losing the connection after 5 minutes every time I logged in freshly or power cycled the modem to get back online. (Power cycling doesn't work now, only a reboot.)

I've spent a lot of time with Level 1 and now Level 2 tech support from AT&T, clearing viruses, resetting DNS options, etc. The latest tech thinks it might be a defective Network Card. I wonder if this is the case. I can presently surf the net find in Safe Mode with Networking, for as long as I want, but in normal mode I lose the connection after 4-5 minutes. (I am not using the router.)

So I'm curious to know if in the end your problem was the Network Card and how/whether you fixed the situation.
 

A:I have same problem, network connection issues

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Thanks for your cooperation.

I can't connect to "some" websites, but I can connect to others. These websites include us.cnn.com and live.microsoftonline.com, among others. I'm able to connect to facebook.com.

Using Win10 x64, Google Chrome. But I've tried it with Edge and also Firefox with the same result. I've turned off the firewall, and released/renewed my IP address and flushed the DNS cache as well. Other connected devices in the house don't have this problem, so I'm assuming it's my computer.

I've even changed the DNS server I use. I don't have a virus or malware, primarily because I'm a prudent user, but also because I've done recent scans with Kaspersky, Bitdefender, and Malwarebytes.

Anyone have any idea what the heck could be the problem? While some sites don't load, others will load 99% and then continue to get hung up loading on that 1% for the rest of the browsing session.

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.

EDIT: I'm sending this from my phone and cannot use the sysinfo utility, becuase, go figure, this is one of the sites to which I cannot connect. The error Chrom gives me is "This page isn't working. Techguy.org didn't send any data. ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE."

I've recently built my first computer and I seem to be plagued with just terrible luck. Everything was fine for a short time until the Ethernet port on my motherboard apparently died. Device manager says it works properly but it lost the ability to tell that an Ethernet cable is inserted. After trying to find a fix for days I just ordered a pci network card. It worked great for a couple of days and then one day it just didn't. It started cycling between identifying and unidentified network and connects sometimes. As of writing it only goes out rarely but while it's working it does so dreadfully slow. I've looked for options for days straight with no luck. I'll post my build below. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

I tried to do the ipconfig in the command prompt but get the message "no operation can be performed on Wireless Network Connection while it has its media disconnected".
When I plug the laptop into the router using the ethernet cable, it works fine.

If the wireless adapter is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop bottom carefully and firmly remove and replace the card several times. This will fix any possible looseness or corrosion problems.

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver installed.

Hello
I'm risking this quick before I get disconnected again..
I have a really annoying problem with my wireless at the moment.
Everything was fine before, I've never had any troubles with it whatsoever.. but now all of a sudden, my laptop loses wireless connection whenever the main pc is booted and used. I asked to check if the drivers were up to date, to which I was told they are, then I asked to check the firmware, to which he said he didn't need to because he had no trouble with his, blamed my laptop.
He runs his through the main wire, whereas mine connects through wireless adapter.
I have checked the drivers for my adapter and everything, they're all up to date, so now I'm really lost with what is wrong.
The only thing I know he did do recently (when the problem seemed to arise.. but I don't get how) is set the network to 'hidden' but I have the wireless key so it should still connect when he is on too, right?
Here's the thing - if he doesn't use his, mine would be fine for the whole day.. but as soon as he uses his, mine goes off, there was never this issue before! - this is really frustrating me so if anyone here can help me out in any way, then I'd really appreciate that
Thank you for taking the time to read.

You can use any IP that you like for the LAN in your home. Changing from 0 to 149 or 222 makes no difference. But if you know that it works using 192.168.0.x why even change it?

We have broadband set up at home and my laptop will just connect to it via wi-fi. The only issues I've had is when the broadboand has been down - which is to be expected. However, over the last 1-2 months, I'll switch my laptop on and the symbol of a PC with a red X in the corner will display on the welcome page straight awy. When I log in, I cannot connect to any internet at all. I just constantly get the 'No Internet Connection' status. So... I'll shut down, restart the laptop ... and it's fine. Connects to the internet straight away. It's OK for a couple of days and then... bam ... no internet connection. Shut Down. Turn On. Fine. It can't be the broadband router or anything like that as other devices like my mobile, or my brother's laptop stay connected and don't seem to have any issues. Plus, if there was issue with the router, surely the internet wouldn't work when I restart the PC.  I can't be doing with having to shut down and restart my laptop every day. Any ideas? Help greatly appreciated - and apologies for the lack of techincal knowledge/jargon.

11Mbps implies 802.11b. You could invest in a new wireless adapter--802.11g or pre-n.

A friend asked me to look at her laptop but I haven't been able to figure out what's wrong with it. It's an Acer ES1-531 and is having loads of issues with maintaining a network connection. Quite often, there won't even be an option to search for wireless networks. There's no single thing that always gets it up and running though. Sometimes disabling and re-enabling the network adapter in hardware settings works, but sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I have to uninstall it completely and reinstall it. Sometimes that doesn't even work though and other times all it needs is a reboot. I've updated to the latest drivers and it didn't make a difference. The router is working fine as there are no issues with other devices.

Any suggestions as to what the issue could be? Thanks in advance.

I have gotten word that I am going to get help in the CAD portion of my job. I am looking into networking 2 computers together to share files and quite possibly internet connection(DSL). What are some economical/easier ways to setup a network.
Computer 1 specs
--Intel Xeon EM64T 3.0 GHz processor
--Windows x64 and 32 bit installed
--HDD partitioned with 32 bit XP (using now) and 64 bit
--64 bit architecture(factory installed x64 bit Windows) i installed 32 bit because of
Hardware problems.
--NIC-not sure if I can use straight thru or crossover cable with.
--A couple of available USB ports

Computer 1 is my computer- i just want to grant access to my co-worker so when hes done with one file he can save it back to my computer and I can then access it when needed. He will also need "template" files that I already have on my computer. It seems easier to handle instead of having to update files on each computer(or worse, rely on each other to rtemember to update each computer).

computer 2 specs
--Intel Xeon dual core 3.0 Ghz processor - plus a possible second processor-not sure if I
will get the 2nd processor though.
--Windows Xp 32 bit
--NIC-not sure if I can use straight thru or crossover cable with.
--A couple of available USB ports

This will be the first time dealing with networking for me, so i not sure of what route to take. I hear of direct cable connection through parallel port/serial port/cat5 cross over cable. What do you think?

Here's the basic deal. I'm running on a toshiba laptop, at my parents place (up visiting for a week) My father is running off of a desktop

We both use win 7 64 bit

We are hardwired into a router.

We both run firewall and anti-virus programs and have come up clean in both cases.

Other systems plugged into the same router still have local area access.

We have both recently installed logmein hamachi to be able to operate more easily as a lan, along with the other family members.

The systems other than those two things don't have a lot of similarities.

At the time we started having issues, the VPN software was completely off and disabled on both computers.

His computer suddenly was not able to connect to the LAN, within 15 minutes, in the middle of researching a web page to try and get him running, my computer suddenly was also no longer able to connect.

Restarted the router
Ran the winsock fix
Installed new ethernet drivers
In the case of running an ipconfig it reads as everything disabled and for obvious reasons cannot renew.
DHCP is enabled
Ran the system hardwired into a backup router coming off the main modem, didn't make a difference

Says that it's connected into the LAN and you can see other systems on the router, but cannot connect through to the internet.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

A:Local area network connection issues.

I recently worked on a system where one of the users had installed VPN software possibly Hamachi and it completely ruined the networking on that system. Try rolling back to a restore point if you have one from before you installed the VPN software.

Hi,
I have had my computer for about a year and a half and recently I have had extreme issues with the internet. What happens is that once I boot up the computer I am disconnected from the internet. Usually, my computer displays that I am connected to the network and the internet but when I attempt to search something it will let me and display results but I cannot connect to any websites. Other times it displays that I am able to connect to the network but not the internet. In the first situation I am able to use applications like online games and skype while i am unable to visit websites.

As you may have surmised, I updated Vista a couple of days ago with the most recent update (I don't remember exactly what I updated). I simply followed the recommended links, etc. Following that, I updated ZoneAlarm, also.

The day after the update, I noted that zone alarm was no longer on my computer (can't find it anywhere) and I no longer have the ability to connect to the internet. When I look at the Network Center and diagnose the problem the errors that come up are "the NVIDIA nForce Network controller is having having hardware or driver related issues" and "the Broadcom 802.11b WLAN is having hardware or driver related issues." I checked the WLAN switch....it's on.

For the life of me I can't figure out what's up. I checked on the drivers: I looked for an update on the computer and it says that both devices are running the optimal drivers.

Any ideas????

Make sure your wireless card isn't turned off in bios and see if there's any remnants of zone alarm as that'll lock things down. Also, make sure windows firewall is off.

Hello,

So I have a brand new computer (home build) running Windows 8.1 and a brand spanking new USB wireless adapter (Trendnet N300 dual band). I installed the adapter from its disc on Friday and used it fine all night. Wake up Saturday and I'm getting 'limited connection' when connected to my home router.

After a lot of playing, updating the drivers for the adapter, updating Windows, playing i n command prompt...it now won't connect to the router at all.

I'm currently connecting via a bridged ethernet connection to my Macbook.

Extensive googling just isn't turning up a solution, and if anything seems to have made it worse seeing as the adapter can't even connect to the router now! This also seems to be a common problem with Windows 8.1?

I've tried refreshing the modem by calling comcast and asking them to do it but that didn't work, and i've tried switching out my cable (between the computer and the router) and that hasn't worked. So i'm stumped.

the operating system is windows XP and it's a somewhat old Dell if that makes a difference

Hi there,Recently, I have been traveling and I notice when I am connected to any other wireless connection, my surfing speed is slower than anybody else especially comparing with those with MacBook. I tried going to Facebook with a Mac it took me 2 secs, but with my XP it took me 2 minutes.And now, I am having problem with my Gmail Chat, Skype where it take a very long time to load the page and sometimes without the chat function where it says "Unable to reach Gmail. Please check your internet connection or company's network settings.'".I tried other people laptop it works but mine doesn't. I tried reset my tcp/ip winsock and it still does not work. But when I VPN back to the states, it starts working again. I have been reading forum and they said the timezone is wrong but I set it to Bangkok timezone which is where i am and it still does not work.Anybody any ideas?Hope to hear from someone.Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

May I suggest the following:

Defrag, Scandisk (whtever frequently used apps start quicker)
Clean all cookies and all other scrappy files and temps using CCleaner.
Scan using Malwarebytes, TDDSkiller and ure AntiVirus for any trojans, etc of that sort.

Check your security settings of ure WiFi, can anybody else access your network. Have u set a password? (U can read articles about it just google it)
Are bluetooth settings are on as well, switch them off.

Check Service Control Manager,see what are the frequent applications that auto startup (perhaps a zillion of them startup at the same time, u need a software expert/friend for this) and change them into manual startup. Use Startup Task Manager try to understand how much resources are used for per service/process that is running.

Use googlechat and skype when u want to use, nt to hv them on autostart.

Have all software updates set to monthly or never update if not important.

In short this means get the Lap finetuned by maintennance person to checkup on ure WiFi hardware configs.

BTW Bangkok is high intense WiFi activity at peak hours as well, maybe...

Good luck.
