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: HOw to Connect wifi broadband to Wifi Router

I may be misunderstanding you but if you're getting WiFi out of your broadband appliance already, you don't need a router. If you do want to use a WiFi router, you're not going to be using the WiFi signal from the broadband appliance.

Ive been having trouble with this ever since i bought my new Windows XP HP computer. I had it before with my old computer without ever having a problem. But as soon as i bought my new cpu, 3 or so hours in, it disconnects by itself. All i have to do is disconnect it and connect it again from the back of the router for 1 second, and it works again.
What do you think is the problem? Do u think its a software issue because it just started happening when i got my new PC. Any help? ANy Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

A:Can’t use my broadband connection after setting up wifi router. Please Help.

Hi,

It sounds like you just need to do a power cycle. To do that just follow these instructions:

First shutdown your computer. Next unplug the power cable from the back of the router and modem.

Second let everything sit for 1 to 2 minutes.

Third, plug the modem back in to the power cord. Let it power all the way up. Next plug the router back in, and let it power back up.

Last turn you computer on. Let it also power up. Next you will need to connect to a network. To do this you will need to make sure that your wifi is turned on. It usually turns on automatically, or there should be a switch to turn on.

After it is turned on you will see an icon near the clock that you can click on and then choose a network from. Once you are connected to a network open your browser and see what happens.

Cheers!

I have an HP Mini 2140 laptop with Windows XP pro and It will no longer connect to my wireless router. It started with McAfee Security Center warning me that my computer was not protected. When I clicked fix nothing happened except that after my Wifi connection will not stay connected. I scanned the system and found nothing. I downloaded Malware Bytes and two other spyware products and Malware Bytes found anything and removed something called Perfessional Malware. Next I uninstalled McAfee which did not solve the problem. Next I repaired the IPStack then ran Winsocketfix routine. Then I reloaded all device drivers from the manufacture CD and still no internet. Then I downloaded and ran Combefix. I also encountered this forum and followed instructions to created an attach.txt, DDS.txt file and GMER.log. I am ready to upload those files when appropriate. The last thing I tried was to hard code the IP address etc in the wireless connection. That has allowed me to connect to a nearby unsecured connection, but to weak to see the internet. I still cannot connect to my wireless router. I forgot to mention I have a 2 Wire modem/router. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,
I have Windows 7 on Dell N4110. I am unable to connect to my netgear router wirelessly. If i restart the router, it may work for some time but then again gets disconnected. However, i can connect to it through wired connection. Others in my apartment can connect to the router. They dont have windows 7 (they use vista, ubuntu). Its working fine for them.

Hi,

I recently bought dlink D2750U WIFI ADSL modem/router, for my ADSL internet connection.

But I have now changed my ISP, who provide internet via cable(not telephone line). The ISP guy provides a cable modem(old modem) along with it.

I have connected my PC this way:
Cable modem -> Router -> PC through RJ45. I am able to access internet from my PC, but I am not able to get wifi working on the router. And I am logging onto internet through a dial up connection.
Questions:
1) Please help in configuring the router to get wifi working.
2) Also, my default gateway seems to be either 0.0.0.0 or blank. So, I am not able to login to the modem unless I remove the modem connection. Please let me know if I am doing anything wrong here.

Here are a few more details:
Output of ipconfig: http://pastebin.com/Zr9Eb7L7
 

A:Using dlink D2750U Wifi Modem/Router As a Wifi Router

Hey Narain. The D-Link unit you have appears to be a combo unit (modem and wireless router) since it connects straight to the RJ-11 phone line. This unit won't work with an ISP that provides service by way of coax cable. The D-Link will work if you want to use DSL, but you need a cable service compatible modem or combo modem/router if you use cable service.

Basically, what's happened is that after transferring my old PC's data onto my new one, and putting that one in place of my old one, therefore hooking up my modem to it, my wireless devices have been having trouble connecting to the router. Everything's hooked up fine, and it was working perfectly before, but now my devices such as my laptop and Droid Pro can SEE the router (As in connect to it and say that they are getting excellent signal strength), but when I try to open my browser, it asks as if I'm not connected to anything at all. The PC that's wired to the modem through the router works fine, however.

Hi there! I'm not not really techy. I was looking for a customer support number for Tp-link but thought that this forum may be helpful since I can't find their number anywhere on the net. Im using a Tp-link wireless router and I have a modem attached to my pc. I just noticed that if I turn off my router, the Ethernet light on my modem turns off, but the power and dsl lights are still on. Is there a way for me to use my pc even if my router is turned off? If I remember right, i've tried it before and it worked... But now, I have to turn on my router just for me to be able to connect to the net on my pc.

Actually they are breaking the ISP agreement in most countries.
The agreement will state that the broadband can only be used in one premises , this is so that people cannot provide neighbours with wifi ....

so as this is also against our rules - closing post

Ok guys, I have a home office, work for a large corporation but home based. I have my own broadband and seperate router for gaming, surfing etc.
I also have a dedicated works laptop, which also has a dedicated WIFI router for purely work stuff.

Previously, I made it impossible for my "work" router to connect to my "home" laptop, for obvious reasons.
However, a couple of weeks ago, I needed to do some trouble shooting, and allowed the home lap top to access my work network.
I switched it back, but forgot to inhibit the 2 from linking.

So today, I'm looking at some ahem.. porn, didn't think much about it. A few hours later, I realise I'm connected to the "work" network.

So,

1)Is there a way to check in Windows 7 what router i was connected to at various times through WIFI?
2)Is it likely the ISP would advise my employer that I have looked at porn? - i didn't go through the work VPN, it's just a standard line from Zen into my house, by my company pay the bill direct.

appreciate any help!

I have been relatively happy with my Yoga 900, but I have run into an odd situation and would appreciate any help.Specifically, my device functions well with my home router, but if I move to an area of the house where the WiFi signal is weak, and I get disconnected from the router, I seem to be unable to re-connect to the router when I then move back to an area of the house with a strong signal.I tried turning off the WiFi and turning it back on, but it still will not connect.It seems the only way I can get back online is to reboot.Is there a solution to this?For what it's worth, I do have the default 18.12.2.3 driver installed (Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 8260), and saw a post somewhere suggesting going to the Intel site for their driver.I am not someone who enjoys tweaking settings, so hopefully there is a simple step I am missing.Thanks so much to anyone who has time and willingness to offer a suggestion.

Hi,
I have a Dell XPS 13" for the last year and a half.
I changed the password for my router after which my Dell XPS is not able to connect to the internet. The laptop does connect to the router (status states - Secured, Connected) however it does not connect to the internet.
I can connect to the internet via the same router on multiple devices (ipad, iphone, android phone, macs and another Lenovo Windows machine)
I am bamboozled as to why this Dell XPS is not able to connect.
Checking the properties of the device (via the Device Manager) says the Device is working properly. The network adapter is a Dell Wireless 1820A.802.11ac.
I tried to uninstall and re-install the driver and still don't see a difference.
Appreciate any assistance.
The Dell website (for Drivers and downloads is also friendly). I can't easily check what the latest driver is. 
Searching for wireless for my Dell XPS
returns only one result  and the installation of that is not successful either.

A:Wifi connecting to my router however it does not connect to the internet

When you stated you changed the password on the Router, I thought you meant the one for the Admin of the Router.  I suppose you mean the WPA2 security password for the network..
I assume you have looked at the available networks and picked the one you use and check it properties for Public/Private and security settings?
If the wireless icon is showing a yellow triangle it may be related to DNS.  You might check the IP Settings on the above reference page to make sure you have correct IP addresses listed.

Hi,
I set up a wireless bridge with my TP-Link TL-WR1043ND to get better signal in my flat. (landlord provides internet via wifi AP but I have bad reception, therefore the wireless bridge) I works flawlessly. I can connect my android phone and my PC to it. Recently I tried to connect with a HP Stream 11 (Realtek RTL8723BE) to my TP-Link and it refuses to connect. Password is correct. If I connect to landlords AP directly it works and I am able to ping my TP-Link but I cannot access its web interface either. The HP Stream 11 uses Win 8.1 but this shouldnt matter afaik since my TP-Link acts as an AP.
I have no idea what could be going wrong. Any ideas???

I've tried disabling & re-enabling the wifi adapter, double checked that the wifi button was toggled on, ipconfig release & renew, and a few other things, but nothing has fixed the problem.

At this point if I restart my computer, I can connect to my router for a brief period (< 1 minute) before the connection terminates and won't connect again. The wifi tray icon has a yellow circle on it and I can see the available networks, but I can't connect to them. If I try the windows troubleshooter it will say either to check the router &/or that the LAN is disabled. Running ipconfig -all shows that the media state is disconnected even though it looks to be on/enabled through device manager, the control panel network adapter page, and the keyboard wifi button is on.

How can I figure out where the problem is? It isn't the router since it works with other devices, but it doesn't entirely seem to be the network card either since it can still see the available networks, but just can't connect to them. Does anyone have any idea of what to do?
NIC: Broadcom 43225 802.11 b/g/n. driver version 5.60.350.6

About a week ago, our cable internet connection went out. Before I had a chance to reboot the modem & router, my 11 year old decided to completely reset the router to factory settings! Ugh! This caused several issues: my home network is now gone, only a unsecured factory network is available. When I try to plug my laptop into the router via ethernet cord (in order to login to router and setup secure network) my computer will not recognize the router and won't connect to internet. I tried troubleshooting with my cable provider and they say it's in my computer (IP address will not reset) and he recommended I replace my network card. However, today when I brought my laptop to work, it will instantly recognize the wifi at work. So is it really my network card that is causing issues? Please help, I'm desperate and not tech too tech savvy!

I am looking to replace my tired Linksys WRT54G router that is about 10 years old. I love the router, and its even better with DD-WRT on it, but I'm starting to have troubles with the wifi dropping all the connects for a couple seconds when running all my wireless devices. I have 3 smart phones, 2 tablets, 1 Chromecast, a smart TV, and Roku + a laptop or 3 in my house right now, and it seems like its getting to be a bit much for it.
I have had to completely re-flash the firmware twice this year to get the wifi working again, so I'm thinking its time for replacement.
I have been thinking about just getting the new WRT54GL for $50, but I'm also thinking it might be a good idea to upgrade the wifi technology past wireless G .
I'm wondering if my Tablet (Nexu 9), and our smartphones (Razr HD Max) along with the Chromecast will take advantage of the new wireless standards and higher speeds or not? If they will can someone recomend a decent wireless router that takes DD-WRT nicely in the sub-$100 range? Thanks!
 

A:Looking for new Wifi Router - Will Tablet/Smartphone take advantage of new wifi Standards?

I been programming in Android/Linux since 2010 and there is code that supports VHT is Very High Throughput. Right now the standards are HT is High Throughput .

As for DD-WRT firmware is like your overclocking your router pushing it beyond the OEM limits. I use to use DD-WRT but had quit many years ago since the routers that used that firmware would fail too much.

So best to buy a better business type enterprise router wired then you can use WiFi router as AP or just get WiFi AP(access point). To me WiFi Router is also Wired Router, but to use just a wired router and use WiFi AP through a switch is better. If one or the other goes you can easy replace them. Where as if the WiFi Router fails you would need to replace it.

If you really want to use DD-WRT then Look at Buffalo WiFi Routers some come pre-installed with DD-WRT on them. Frankly you really don't need DD-WRT today because newer routers or WiFi routers are much better built and offer much more power NPU = network processor units and 128, 256, 512, 1GB of RAM some have Dual Cores.

I am currently stationed in Germany, and live in a village that has horrible internet. I cannot stream netflix, hulu, and downloads take several hours.

Is there a way to combine the internet that my cell phone receives and the wifi router I have at home to increase speed?

I have the ability to create a wifi hotspot from my cell phone if this helps.

Just something I thought up in my head, and wanted to find out if it is possible. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I really need help since I'm not computer savy. Yesterday, I stupidly decided to disconnect my modem and router because all the wires were a mess!! Well, now I'm not sure if I reconnected correctly, but I guess I did since I can get online but have no wifi. My router password is working, however, when I entered all the wireless/security stuff on the Linksys site it just keeps bringing back to the basic set up page . I hsve no idea what is wrong. Any ideas? My router is a Linksys N300.

Thanks so much! I spent about 8 hours yesterday trying to fix this. Losing my mind!
 

A:Router won't connect, no wifi (moved from Windows 8 forum)

Might help to give us the actual model number of your Linksys router. The N300 refers to a type, not a model number. Wouldn't hurt to tell us the brand and model number of the modem.

Please tell us exactly how you have the computer, router and modem wired to each other, by referring to how the ports are named and labeled.

When you say, "I can get online but have no wifi", do you mean you your computer can get to the Internet only with a wired connection?

When you say the, "Linksys site", do you mean the web based administration pages on your Linksys router?

When you were changing the wireless and security settings, did you need to click a button the settings pages to actually save the settings.

Does your router show up in the list available WiFi connections on the Windows network connection list?

I have recently bought a router, the Fritz.Box Home Server 1&1 VDSL. I have set it up via wifi and can connect to the internet without a problem.
However, I would like to connect my PC to the router via LAN.
When I put the LAN cable into my PC and the router, both my PC and my router react and tell me there is a connection but they do not recognize each other. The router says there is something in LAN1 and the PC says there is a LAN cable without a connection. I cannot access the router via LAN, only via wifi.
My PC uses the Killer Network 2200e driver, I tried removing it and then manually adding it again, it did not work. My IPv4 settings seem fine, too, I have no idea what to do now.

A:Ethernet won't connect to router, wifi works fine

and welcome to the Forum

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found, here's how


Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type or copy and paste the following command:

ipconfig/all > 0 & notepad 0

and press enter.

Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Hi All,

I have Dlink Router DIR-890L. I have set up the security with WPA/WPA2-Personal and saved the changes but the connection stays open and unsecured. All my neighbors are able to connect because it doesn't prompt them for a password. I have upgraded the router to the latest firmware and still the same problem.
Lately I've been using the MAC filter to keep people off my connection but this is impractical when I have guests over. Also disabling broadcasting doesn't allow my phone to reconnect automatically.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance!

I have a slightly different setup so I'm hoping somebody might have some suggestions on what I can try.

I have Comcast Xfinity Internet and a Motorola SB6121 model - have all worked great for years no problems.

I have the modem in my garage with a wifi router and a router for various rooms in my house. My home computer is in an office and previously I had a wired connection that worked great.

I changed wifi router to a new Netgear and the internet connection from the modem is working, the wifi is working, but my home computers ethernet connection will no longer connect...

Any thoughts on what to try other than powering off and on model / routers / computer which I have tried?

Mike

A:Changed wifi router, now ethernet doesnt connect - Win 8.1

You can only have one router on your network. For extending coverage, you use Access Points

As for the Ethernet problem, go back and double check your connections to the router.

If you cascaded routers in what are called "Edge Routers". Changing your first router, without any changes on the others can be why you only have a connection to one router and not out to the Internet.

It is really easier to show someone what they did wrong, then explain on a forum.

I have never run into this before.

I have a dsl modem/gateway (actiontec) which i use to connect to the internet

when I connected a Linksys WRT54G v.4 router to my laptop thru RJ45, WITH wifi disabled on the router, I lose connectivity to the internet on the wifi connection.

I'm used to XP with independent connectoids. Looking at the properties on each connection, they appear to be correct.

Has anyone run into this on Vista?

I thought surely by disco'g the wifi on the Linksys Router it should just be a standard wired connection.

both routers are setup for DHCP. Is that what's confusing Vista?

weird. appreciate any help. I am so out of troubleshooting ideas.

can you just run through your post again, you seem to be saying that you have disabled your wireless on your router and you lose connection on the wireless connection on your computer.

My new kindle cannot connect to wifi in my house. we have a cisco linksys router. we have wpa2 personal security and i have entered the password many, many times so i know i am not typing it wrong. I have tried removing the security from the router to see if it would connect and it still will not. I wondered if it was just the Kindle malfunctioning, so i took it to a friends house and it connected to her router right away with no problem. I have also tried removing the firewall... i dont really know what the point of that would be but i tried anyways. I also tried restarting the Kindle because that is supposed to help, but it did not. please help!

Greetings. My name is Randy. I got home after work yesterday and was unable to get my laptop or Android phone connected to my home network. The modem showed everything was working fine and the router was fine.
 
Then I noticed in the list of surrounding wifi hotspots, a new one I'd never seen -- Trojan.??? It was named Trojan dot something, like b9 or something like that. I cannot recall but can see it later tonight.
 
I have a TP-Link TL-WR940N V3 Wireless N450 Home Router.
 
Very troubling. Want to take care of this ASAP.
