L560 Intel LAN network disconnecting frequently - can't update NVM Gbe

Q: L560 Intel LAN network disconnecting frequently - can't update NVM Gbe

Hello, I have trouble with my L560 with an Intel L219-V network adapter.It seems to be a known problem, connection is lost, it comes back, disconnects, connects, disconnects and so on.Temporary solution is to reboot the computer, but the issue reappears after a while. Lenovo has already repaired the computer with a new motherboard and RAM (for some reason). It seems this did not fix anything as it has shown up again. I started searching and it seems to be a known issue, and is usually fixed as per this download: https://support.lenovo.com/ch/sv/downloads/ds121059 HOWEVER... when trying to run this update I get an error. I thought it might have something to do with Windows 10, so I tried a fresh Windows 7 32-bit install. I got another, but a little different error. It says "No update needed", but when I check the NVM Gbe version it is still 0.8. The update is supposed to update 0.8 to 1.3 to fix the connection issue. What am I supposed to do? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Since a few years back my NIC (I291-V) don't work properly anymore. It started to make trouble after NIC was replaced (reason unknown as there was no problem there) during other repair of laptop. I have been trying to fix it but to no success. Have been using Wifi instead. After reboot NIC works fine but it fails after a certain amount of databits have been passing through the NIC. During normal surfing it will work the whole time as the critical data limit will nog be reached but during update of PC <-> NAS i.e. while large data is moved, the NIC will fail and disconnect the LAN.. Quite annouying. Anyone else with the same problem? One solution is to just buy a USB-NIC..

So i just bougth a brand new L560 Thinkpad and got a small problem. It all started when the laptop just frooze and the only thing was to press and hold the power button to shut it down. At first i couldnīt start windows properly so i had to switch to safe mode. After that it started normally but now i keep seeing the intel boot agent on startup: PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cablePXE- MOF: Exiting intel boot agent. The only thing i can recall doing was to upgrade the BIOS the other day.

Hey all;
Shortly after a failed Win7 upgrade, I installed the manufacturers drivers for my wireless card since I was in a BSOD boot loop, and that fixed the problem.
But with these drivers, I keep randomly getting disconnected from the internet - particularly when streaming video.
I don't think it's due to automatically connecting to other networks because the signal strength of those other networks is always lower, and it happens more often when I'm on Youtube or other video-streaming sites.
I have an Acer Aspire 5532 laptop running Win7 Home Premium, my wireless card is an Acer Aspire AR5B93 Wireless Network Adapter.
Thanks in advance!

I have a broadband connection which is connected to a wireless router, how ever wirelessly to my laptop the connection is fine. But the LAN connection to my desktop has the habit of disconnecting randomly every few minutes or so...any help or tips on this subject would be greatly appreachiated.

A:Internet disconnecting frequently

First thing is to verify that it is not a cable or a port issue:

Try to change the cable
then with the new cable, try a different port.
If it still is causing the problem, check the drivers for your network card.

Last - try a new NIC card.

Hi,

I currently have an i.t.works keyboard, model number: CS 01. It's been working fine for years when suddenly it stopped working, then started working again. During use, it frequently just stops working for varying amounts of time. Whenever my wireless receiver receives a signal the blue light flashes. I've noticed that when the keyboard stops working the blue light doesn't flash. However my wireless mouse works fine!

I have already tried replacing the batteries, putting the receiver and keyboard right next to each other, cleaning the keyboard, re-installing the receiver/keyboard, updating the drivers. Nothing worked!

PLEASE help as it is of vital importance to me! Thanks!

Hi, all! I've only begun experiencing this issue in the past month. I took a few months off from online gaming in general, and returned to strange connectivity issues. It's happened in FFXIV, Diablo 3, Path of Exile, and Borderlands 2. My internet's never been the best, a measly 3 mbps, but it's always been extremely stable while gaming until now. What happens is I will suddenly be disconnected from the game's servers. I'm not always running other applications, but when I am (Skype or Pandora through my browser,) I don't lose connection with those services. My internet doesn't really disconnect, but I can't keep in contact with the servers for long. This usually happens every 30 minutes or so. Connecting through a VPN (WTFast) helps it occur less, but it does happen from time to time. I've tried disabling my software firewall (AVG) but it doesn't help. The router firewall is disabled, and I've forwarded appropriate ports for the games I'm playing.

Granted, my router is VERY OLD. It's possible that it's failing, but I'd rather troubleshoot the issue before throwing money at the problem. It's a Westell A90-750015-07. My ISP is Verizon. I haven't contacted their support line because I don't pay the bill and I'm not sure if I can. In any event, I'd rather look into it myself first, but I'm really not sure where to start.

Hi,
so I have this brand new Dell Inspiron 7559 with the Intel HD 530 and Nvidia graphics card. I am also using a Dell external display that uses the same full hd resolution and 60 hz frequency.
So I have connected the external display using DVI>HDMI cable to my laptop. Everything works fine. But I have disconnected the cable, used the laptop around with the built in display and later shut it down. After doing this i cant start it with the external display again. No matter what I do, I tried every setting, also hitting the buttons on my keyboard to use only the second display etc. It stays black.
Only thing that helps - I have to reinstall the drivers "7559_Video_Driver_HYWWT_WN32_20.19.15.4352_A03". After doing this, it works again till i dont disconnect it and shut it down. But I cant work like this, always reinstalling the drivers.
Second Issue - after reinstalling the drivers, it restarts the system but the text is slightly blurry in some applications, I have to restart it again to get sharp text.

Hi...I'm running Win7 Home Premium (64-bit), 8Gb RAM, with the chip:

Graphics is not dedicated and is handled via this Intel chip.

However, I also get an additional 'optional' update named: 'Intel Corporation - Display - Intel(R) HD Graphics'

This has never succeeded in downloading.
The MS explanation is always the same: possible interruption from my connection to their server...yet never any interruption when I download MS updates at exactly the same time!

After that, I get the usual 'download Mr Fix It' software which proves itself to be utterly useless in helping me find why the download is not succeeding.

Hi, this is a problem i have with my network.

For some reason, my internet will disconnect every now and then. How serious is it? Its annoying. I have to use the "troubleshoot problems" options now when it happens. The network can sometimes be so unresponsive that i have to restart it in hopes that it will reset.

I tried some other fixes like turning off the network for a while and unplugging the modem, they worked for a while until it the problem keeps coming back.

When it goes in its "Disconnected" state, the network icon has 4 bars lighted up even if the network isn't working. Sometimes an exclamation mark will show up saying that the connection is limited. (limited, disconnected same thing)

When troubleshooter fixes this problem, i will usually get this result:

Hi, this is my first time posting so bare with me if I do anything wrong.

I am having some difficulties with my system.

I purchased a new toshiba laptop and Belkin wireless router.

I use windows live messenger quite regularly and since I've been using this new set up, I find that my internet keeps on disconnecting.

I heard that routers tend to do that, due to walls and electrical appliances interfering with the signal, but I think its happening too often with mine.

When I'm using Windows Live Messenger, I sometimes get signed out but I can sign in right away after that, sometimes my internet losing signal completely and I have to wait a minute for it to regain.

When I video conference on Windows Live I get repeatedly signed out, after a few minutes, and i'm just wondering why this is?

Can it be solved? Or is it just a poor networking system?

I upgraded my Windows Live to the latest upgrade and still no luck.

I also have one more computer and this is the one that I have been having problems with. After a fresh install of Xp, I tried installing the drivers for the network card but I wasn't sure which ones I was using as had to download new ones after losing the install disc. I think I may have corrupted some files as it just doesn't connect.

I then tried installing a usb wireless adapter, model Azurewave Gu210. This did work initially and then after a restart, it stopped working once again.

Now, it is finding the network, connecting and immediately disconnecting after about 3 or 4 seconds.

I have tried using the inbuilt utility that came with the driver and also WZC but it will only connect using WZC but like I said, only for seconds at a time.

My fear is that I have installed and uninstalled a few network drivers and that the whole thing is messed up, I am contemplating wiping Xp and reinstalling, just so I can clear any network clutter I might have setup.

To show how messed up it is, I am currently on windows network connection 9....

I&#8217;m pretty tired of calling the BrightHouse technicians over right about now. I&#8217;ve must have had at least 4 or 5 over and their solutions are always only temporary. I figure I ought to come to the forum of experts now.

I&#8217;ve had this ongoing problem with my internet for several years now. Over the years, we&#8217;ve had four computers (two Vistas, two XP&#8217;s) all connected to a network via a router, which is then connected to a modem. Most of the time, the internet works fine. Once in a while though, the internet will just crash for everyone and it will persist for days. I am just completely clueless as to what the problem is. I would like to get it fixed once and for all; the problem is, as I&#8217;ve already stated, I have no idea where to start, or even if there is just one problematic source rather than a couple.

Symptoms:
The entire network's internet completely stops working. This can last for several minutes, hours, even days. Some weeks, the internet is flawless and it seems like the problem goes away. Other weeks, it simply can't be ignored (and the few hours the internet is up are precious).

I&#8217;m going to run through a couple points:
-We&#8217;ve gone through 3 modems (I think these technicians tend to automatically place the blame on the modem). This rules out the modem itself as the issue; that is, unless we just have extremely bad luck with modems. Currently, the modem looks like a Webstar DPC... Read more

Also in the taskbar I'll get the little yellow warning triangle over my connection. If I check out the connections available it'll say that my wireless connection is weak and internet is unavailable.

The only way I've found to resolve this is resetting the router.

The only thing is it doesn't seem to be a problem with the router/network because my housemates' laptops / ps3 are still connected with no problems. It doesn't matter where I am in the house either so it's not a range issue.

I've noticed this happens a lot when playing steam games so I don't know if it's related to that at all?

Anyone know what's going on or have any suggestions?

A:Laptop keeps disconnecting from network

A few things... if you suspect Steam (which has issues) disable it for a while and see if the disconnect issues still occurs.

Do you have latest wireless nic drivers?

Have WinNT network with Win95 workstation - everyonce in a while one workstation seems to log itself off the network. The workstation in question does have access to Internet/email (using Int. Exp browser); the other workstations do not and don't have this problem. I don't know if that is related or not because if I am logged on to the network then do internet or email I seem to be fine after I log off - but somehow, perhaps hours later I go to access a network application and fine I am no longer on the network. Any ideas?
 

A:Periodically Disconnecting from NT network

How "missing" is the network? Do you have mapped drives that don't work? Network Neighborhood goes from full to empty?

What protocols are you using?

Alright this is going to be long and complicated with no punctuation's it is currently 12am I been working on this sense 5pm I googled I've ask expects now I am here. First it started with Obs (open broadcast source ) that it would start disconnecting at random times the disconnecting was very inconsistent. what I discovered was my usb cable that acts as a wifi adpater for my xbox one controller was reading as a extra Ethernet port. so whenever obs disconnected it was trying to connect to the empty Ethernet port which was the xbox adapter. I unpluged the adapter so it would stop trying to connect to it. Then all hell broke loose and its been 7 hours..... So first I am running windows 10 I have tried hard resetting soft resetting completely rebutting from a usb, and every time the connection seems stable I do the finally test obs THEN it reverts back to disconnecting ever 22 seconds even typing this I have to stop and wait for it to reconnect. I have uninstalled network drivers installed news ones I made sure the Ethernet port is secured. I keep troubleshooting from windows but as soon as the trouble shooting loads it has already reconnected so windows cannot find a problem OBS is the main cause but not the problem because obs is a instant disconnect but it stills disconnect regardless.

Hi
I have a Netcomm Wireless Router and a D-Link Airplus Xtreme USB adaptor. I am having trouble with the internet connection, as it keeps disconnecting. I have searched on your website, and found some answers suggesting that I change the channel. I have tried channel 1, 11 and Auto, but the internet keeps disconnecting. My ISP just tells me that it is a problem with my wireless router and they can't help me.

I have never had this problem before, and it only started when we moved house 2 months ago. We didn't have security enabled before, and when I first started getting kicked off, I went to www.192.168.1.1 and enabled WPA security.

When I go to network connections, I have noticed that there are 2 other wireless internet connections "available". One is security enabled and the other isn't. This is why I enabled it on my pc.

I am now stumped as to what to do to fix my internet connection problems. I have been trying to download some video's from the net, but it keeps timing out, (which I think is because the internet keeps disconnecting)

Please help!!!

Let me apologize in advance if this has been asked and answered, I looked and couldn't find an answer.
I have been running 2 network connections, work network to server, wired, and a wireless connection through USB port to access the internet on all XP machines.
We now have a Windows 7 box, trying to do the exact same connections.
The wired connection works fine but cuts out whenever the USB connection is made. The USB connection works whether the wired connection is connected or not.
Is there some kind of special setting that needs to be set up in 7? Is this maybe an ICS issue?
Please help, thanks.

A:USB network connection disconnecting NIC

Wow, not feeling the love here, lol.
Here is some more info.
The wireless adapter is a Netgear WG111 v3 attached to a Netgear WGR614 v10.
The PC is an HP p6516f running Windows 7 Home Premium.
The internal NIC card works fine untill I hook up the wireless adapter, then it cuts out but remains active as far as ipconfig /all shows?
Any ideas oh tech gurus?

Hello,

I have Rogers high speed internet. We recently got a new modem and had to reset our wireless account. I've been having problems with my wireless disconnecting every couple of minutes since that. It reconnects itself pretty quickly but it gets frustrating while trying to stream a video for example.

I have Windows Vista and I have called Rogers about the problem but they can't seem to figure it out. The problem does not seem to be with the wireless but with my laptop since none of the other laptops in our house have the same problem. Rogers suggested I tried reinstalling my wireless drivers but I'm not quite sure how to do this or if that is even the best solution. Any help would be appreciated since I'm relatively unsure as to how to fix the problem.

Thanks in advance.

Ok, first post here, just need help for this problem. I use a wireless device which connects to my Desktop downstairs, which in turn connects to the router upstairs. All wireless too. So starting about 2 months ago I've been randomly disconnecting when playing games like WoW, and CoH and losing connection on the internet as well. It can't be the router I assume since the laptop upstairs which connects to the same thing never disconnects. I have a D-Link router and a D-link gaming router which connects to the PC. Any help?

We have a user that needs to occasionally take his Laptop out of the docking station and run some applications locally. When he does this, things run very slowly on occasion. For instance Explorer will take a while to display the C drive and each folder selected after that. Nothing is showing up in the task manager to indicate it is chewing up resources.

We are running Windows 2003 Server.
The Laptop is running Windows XP SP1.
The Laptop is connected to our office network via the Docking Station.
The Laptop also has a wireless network connection to our shopfloor network.

Anyone have any ideas where we can begin to look?

Thanks in advance. Vano083

 

A:PC seems to hesitate after disconnecting from network.

You could try temporarily disabling the wireless connection, whilst it is attached to the docking station to see if that is affecting it? I doubt that it is but it might be worth eliminating that to start with

Recently my computer has started connecting and disconnecting from my excellent wireless connection to a linksys low connection i do not know why but it does it a lot. When I want to fix it I have to repair the connection or manually go in and click on My connection. Sometimes after I repair it it will disconnect within the next two to 10 minutes, sometimes its fine for a longer period of time.
 

A:Wireless Network disconnecting

a few things - has this worked OK in the past - you sort of imply its just started happening

do you have a cordless phone
do you have wireless secruity
can yu post model of router
do you have any other PC connected to router - if so details
who is ISP

Post an ipconfig /all - for when its working and when it stops - see later
also try some ping test when working so you know the result and again when stops - see later
post results of above before and after too.

download and install
Free software to check signal strength of wireless is netstumbler 0.4.0 available for download from http://www.stumbler.net/

it will show us other wireless networks in area and channel - which may interfere

ipconfig /all

TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

ONE ---------------------------------
start
run
cmd
ipconfig /all

rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

TWO -----------------------------------------------

Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.
NEXT lets see if you can get out onto the internet with both names and IP's - its possible the IP number you get back on the first test is different to the one I post {I'm in UK} so use the number you get instead of mine

------------------------------------------------
try ping the name and then the IP see below

Simply stating, the problem is when I login, the network disconnects, and I have to reconnect.
It's on Windows 10. When I start the computer, the network say I'm connected (to the correct home network). Then I login, and for a few seconds after login it still says I'm connected. But then it disconnects me. I can then reconnect to the network without a problem, and it will stay connected (afaik). It happens every time. I tried disabling some startup program to see if it changed anything, but it didn't.
As said, it's on Windows 10 (I don't think it had this problem before the upgrade, but it's not my computer, so I'm not 100% sure).
It's connected with a Netgear wireless adapter WN111v2.

I have no idea what could be causing this, and can't seem to find anyone else with this problem.

I'm at my office and I have a network folder that is only accessible by me on our domain. I am on a group machine (meaning everyone in my department uses it for various purposes), and I was accessing it on a server I was using using a local account that is already logged onto that particular machine. I need to open my network folder, and it prompts me for my username and password, now I enter my domain username and password, and access my files, however, I don't want to keep this folder accessible, how do i "disconnect" access to it? This machine is a server with server processes running that we shouldn't be stopping. Any ideas?

Maybe this would be better in the networking section? It's Windows 2000 btw.
 

A:disconnecting a network resource

I believe if you logout and log back in it will require authenication to access your directory again. Just in case I would test it.

Also, services run whether or not a user is logged in, so logging out should not interfere with the server at all.

Hey guys, i've got a really strange problem. I've searched for along time to resolve this, but none of the exsisting threads seem to have exactly the same problem as me so let me explain.

Im using a NF7 V2.0 motherboard with an Athlon 3000+ XP. The NF7 V2.0 has an onboard network card which I have the Uni drivers for (nForce2). The problem is at random times it seems to cut out then start up again, with a little bubble in the bottom right corner saying "Local area connection is now connected 10/100m" or something along those lines. So I tried my PCI network card and that has exactly the same problem. It usually disconnects during games, and as im sure you can imagine its extremly frustrating.

I have turned off "Let windows turn this devices off to save power" option but that has no effect.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
 

A:Network card keeps disconnecting. :(

Where does the other end of the cable go?

You could have a bad network cable or the device at the other end may be malfunctioning.

You can try setting the link speed manually to 10Mbit/100Mbit half/full duplex to stop the auto-detection and possible flapping
