Right click on the wireless adapter and choose Uninstall.5. Run the downloaded drivers from step 1.6. Restart your PC and test.Test an ethernet connection:Self- explanatory. Test if the issue persists on a wired connection to rule out the wireless adapter hardware so troubleshooting can be directed towards the right areas.Test another connection:Many people rule out their home network as an issue if another device is working on the same network. Networking is not that simple. Each device interacts differently with your router or modem and it is impossible to rule out settings in that device until the notebook has been tested on another network.If those three steps do not resolve the issue, try this document published by Microsoft for networking issues: Wired and wireless network problems. You can change the operating system with the dropdown in the upper-right corner of the document. Hopefully, this helps. Please click the ?Thumbs Up? below to thank me for my efforts!

Not sure what is going on exactly, But I'll explain my situation. For some reason I can connect fine when I plug in my wireless receiver port into it, But 30 seconds after I plug it in, the bars disappear And a red X appears over it, if you click on it it'll say no networks found.... The only way to fix it is to plug it in and after 30 seconds it happens again... it is really quite frustrating, And makes doing anything on the internet pretty much impossible. I'm only getting this on my computer, And it's gotten really bad recently, I've tried replacing the reciever, But that fixed it for maybe an hour.... Please I'm desperate for help.

A:Connecting, then suddenly no networks found

Really confused as to where the blame lies. Why are you plugging in the Wifi device, after booting up the computer? Also where is the Red X showing up? Is it showing up on the Task Bar, or in the Device Manager?

Where are you trying to use your computer? At home, or on a Public Hot Spot?

Hi, I'm hoping someone may kindly be able to help with this.

I have two PCs (both windows 10). The one I am now using is connected to the modem by cable. The other - too far from the modem to use a cable - connects through wifi. At least it used to! It has suddenly stopped.

If I look for wifi networks under settings I get the message No wifi networks found

I have tried switching the modem on and off, as suggested by the troubleshooter.

If I look at the dongle thing (this one) under view devices and printers it appears to be operating OK (I only bought it a couple of months ago)

When I tried doing the following
At the command prompt, run the following commands in the listed order:

Type netsh winsock reset and press Enter.
Type netsh int ip reset and press Enter.
Type ipconfig /release and press Enter.
Type ipconfig /renew and press Enter.
Type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.
The first two were OK, but then for ipconfig I got the message No operation can be performed on [Ethernet, Wifi 2, LAN *12, LAN *16] while it has its media disconnected.

I got a WLAN report and under Network Adapters it doesn't provide any problem numbers for any of the 13 devices, which suggests there isn't a problem with any of them?

I did try doing a network reset which didn't help (and may have made things worse as then I added the name of my wifi network but had to guess the settings).

I'd be glad of any suggestions or insights you may have, and can provide mor... Read more

A:PC suddenly unable to find wifi networks

Assuming a laptop, the biggest cause (and most easiest) is because the wireless has been turned off on the machine. Since you did not specify what machine it is, the wireless button is usually on the right side, or one of the Fn keys/PrScn (dell) on top, usually indicated by an antenna or radio waves.

I tried upgrading my wifi card to an intel wireless 3165 and the device manager shows that its detected and working. Also, when I first turn on the laptop I can see all the available networks. However, when I try to connect to my network, it fails and then all the available networks disappear with a red mark on the wifi mark. After that I no longer see any networks, thus having no wifi. How do I resolve this issue? What is the problem here?

Ok so here's the thing. Installed W8 pro with media centre (x86). Everything worked fine, connected to internet wirelessly no problem. Then after a couple of days I get no networks found out of the blue for no apparent reason.

Here are the facts:

Router/internet connection is fine, other devices in my house still connect fine.
Network card fine. Have the most up to date drivers, device working properly etc etc.
If I connect pc to router with ethernet cable I can get on internet fine.
If I do a troubleshoot it just tells me to investigate router or access point issues (turn router off for 10 seconds etc). Like I said, router is fine; NO networks are found, neighbour's one usually comes up but not any more.

Any help appreciated!

A:Wifi - No networks found

Maybe your neighbor quit broadcasting SSID. Go to Starbucks and check their wireless out, assuming your router isn't wireless. Is your router wireless? Are there any wireless computers at your place connecting wirelessly via your router? Could a mechanical wifi switch on your computer have been accidentally turned off.

When I refresh networks, I see all the networks I should (we have an extender, so there are two regions on our house) -- but I also see one called Hidden Network. How do I find out what that is? There are no nearby houses. This has to be emanating from my house.

A:A "Hidden Network" started showing up in list of networks.

It is most likely someone else that have their SSID hidden, which is actually false security. I would not worry about it. Due to it is not connected to your network in any way.

Usually you will find networks with no SSID, for the Utilities that use wifi radios for transmitting power, gas & water use. Also can be used to activate the Warning Sirens for EAS. I find them around our town on the 5ghz radio, Channel 11 all of the time.

Apparently it had gotten so hot it shut itself down (though I don't know how?the vents weren't blocked and it wasn't even doing anything), and now that it's booted back up my wifi icon has a red X in the corner and says "No wifi networks found". My wifi is working fine on my phone and desktop; I even rebooted the router just to be sure.

I have Toshiba laptop and Win 7. It is brand new laptop and original windows. I tried to install AWUS036H and it was successful but unfortunately adapter doesn't detect any networks. It happened with my old laptop with Win 7(Acer) and I had to reinstall windows fresh and it worked. But I wouldn't like to do it again here. As you may see on picture internal adapter has X in corner and it is working but RTL8187 doesn't, it just says Enabled and nothing happens. No networks detecting. In device manager everything is fine, no yellow icons. Also it is not detected by my ipconfig/all command. The same thing happens in safe mode

Adapter is not broken, it is working on linux. This is image from win 8.1 but it happens on my Win 7

What driver is currently installed?

Try this

Download the latest ar956x driver from here:
https://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wirel...et=83&system=5

Version: 10.0.0.297
Release: 2014-07-22 [July '14]
OS: Windows 7 32/64bit
Status: WHQL
File: win7-10.0.0.297-whql.zip (2585 KB)

Unzip the package and note the location
Uninstall the driver from the device in Dev mgr, remove software if presented (checkbox or prompt)
then update the driver from within Dev mgr using the unzipped inf file

Some reports on the Qualcom board indicate that you might have success with an earlier version 10.0.0.263, but I only see 10.0.0.255 then 10.0.0.270 on the site I linked.

Try the newest first , then the 255 (270 was the one the poster on Qualcom complained about)

Maybe the Toshiba site has a version that works. My method is to install the base or original driver from the PC OEM support page and work up if the peripheral board driver doesn't help solve the issue.


Please fill in your SevenForums specs so members can be more help - All I know is that you have a Toshiba laptop with Win7 on it.

Please don't waste your time typing the information in a post - place it in your system specs - then any time you create a thread, people can look at your machine specs in the lower left hand corner of any post.

Anyway, today I woke up and saw the Windows Media Player no longer full screen, and the wireless switch was actually turned on. This is strange because I know I turned wireless off and I frequently check my system with Malwarebytes.

I have recently had a problem with my computer showing no wireless networks. There are other computers that can log on without a problem (obviously, one which I am using).

It is well noteworthy to mention that a few days ago there was an accidental download that initiated. Trendmicro caught it and says the last virus/malware found is: TROJ_DROPPER from C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventlog.dll.

Hello guys! I just got Windows 8 a week or so ago and I left it on today. I came home and my internet suddenly couldn't find any networks. I googled how to get it back, but when I go to pc settings there is no Wireless tab. I cant turn it on, I've tried reinstalling my wireless card LAN driver, restarting my PC and doing a system restore to the last recommended time, nothing works. Please help me.

A:Suddenly not finding any networks

Could you first try plugging in an ethernet cable and connecting locally? This will determine if it is the OS being unable to connect at all or if it is to do with the wireless NIC.

Does this happen to any other device on the network?

Also could you please try and connect wirelessly in Safe mode with networking to see if there are any third party applications that may be interrupting the connection process. To do so please follow this tutorial (Option Three) - Safe Mode - Start Windows 8 in

Please post back your results

Many Thanks,

I'm writing this topic and for couple of seconds the browser freezes. Things i did : Disk cleanup and scanned my computer with Malwarebytes it detected 56 files (Malware, Trojan.miner, PUP's and some other), but it still have lags, so i gave up and wanted to get help from the professionals/experienced people
 
Details: It runs smoothly in Safe Mode, Shutdown process takes very long to operate, and i don't know if this helps but my friend asked me to download a game and play with him, so he sent me the URL, and there there were ads, and different websites popping out, i THINK the lag started from that website he sent me.

Hi. I suddenly started being inundated with pop-up ads, some taking up the entire screen and cannot find a way you, unless I use the Task Manager in my XP, which then takes me out of everything, not just that ad closes. Many of these ads say Microsoft on them. Am sure you know...this is one ad right after the next and is so annoying. Can you see anything that may be the problem for this, on my Hijack This Log I just ran? Prior to running this, I ran Spybot and also Adaware 6, both found items that I took care. I usually have none. Not 10, 20 or more. I have Spyware Guard running in the background, Browser HiJack Blaster, X-Cleaner, Spyware Blaster and the Google Pop-up stopper toolbar. AND I just kicked AOL to the curb, finding a much more satisfactory ISP, deleting and uninstalling as much as I could find on AOL.

I had problems connecting to my WiFi Network these past few days. From time to time, my laptop can't detect my home wireless network at all even though other devices can detect and connect it as easily. I usually had to restart my modem and laptop or simply wait for it to pick up the WiFi connection.

Today, when the WiFi connection was shown as limited on my laptop when all other devices had a normal connection, I tried disabling then enabling again the Wireless Network Connection(?) on the Network Connections window in the Control Panel. I disabled it. But, when I tried enabling it again, the icon didn't show any change; and when I refreshed, the wireless network connection icon disappeared altogether.

I tried setting-up a new connection in hopes of locating the Wireless Network but the option of manually connecting to a wireless connection itself was gone (or anything relating to it really).

With a bit of info from googling, I checked Network Adapters on the Device Manager panel and the Wireless Adapter wasn't there (even after opting to Show Hidden Devices).

So, should I assume that this is a hardware problem? Or is there some setting that I should configure?

I'm a complete layman when it comes to computers but I'd honestly like to save money by figuring this out myself so I'm hoping it's only some setting I neglected to check given my lack of knowledge. So, may I get your advice on it?

Thank you for your response!

Hey there!
I know you guys are good at what you do, and I just posted a thread in the virus forum on behalf of my dad, so I feel bad for posting this one too, but I wouldn't have found my dad's issue if I hadn't been researching mine.
My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite, and two days ago it was connecting to the wireless internet just fine. Then it spontaneously disconnected. I went to re-connect and it told me there were no wireless networks in the area at all. I know there are at least 15 in our area my laptop picks up. It was not dropped or shaken in any way, so it is not a hardware problem, I don't think. Hardlining it failed; it said it was connected to "unknown network" and could not connect to the internet. The router is fine because the family desktop and the other laptop have internet access just fine. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Hi there
might be because it detects networks but these are hiding their SSID's or network name.

How do you get your Wifi -- is it via a cable box in UK usually (Virgin / BT / SKY) or via a public Wi-Fi service .

If it's a cable box try and logon using the LAN cable and see if you can download the correct Wifi driver for your laptop.

Could be settings in the router or the signal isn't strong enough to connect to.

In the UK I know the whole 2.4 GHZ in anywhere near London / Manchester and other big cities is hopelessly overloaded and interfence with adjacent signals causes mega probs -- I switch to the 5 GHZ band with the 301-n connection and this gets round these problems (your wifi card needs to be able to receive this band however. Newer laptops have this capability sometimes but not all of them).

I'd suggest testing via LAN cable -- and if you can get on to your routers control panel usually address 192.168.x.01 where x is often 0 or 2 or some number like that change the channel to something like... Read more

On the wireless network list, you normally see anything the laptop can catch in its wireless signal radius.

There are about 9 networks that I see, but the one I'm supposed to use it at work does not appear.
So I took my other two laptops, MacBook Pro and an Asus model to see if it's the laptop that's causing the problem. And yes, the two caught the network so well.

I'm not sure how this is possible, but can aid anyone me how I can fix this?

Hi guys, hope I can find help here as I've tried everything I could think of and am going nuts over this ...

My computer has run flawlessly since I got it at the beginning of the year. Starting about a week every game program I run now crashes within a few seconds to about 10 minutes. More often than not its just a straight drop to desktop with no other information, but when it does acknowledge the crash its just the generic "do you want to search the internet for possible solutions" type thing. Also, frequent tab crashes in my firefox browser started to happen, as well as the occasional Blue Screen system crash.

The games I've been playing recently are early release games like Subnautica and Astroneer, but it also occurs with older and simpler games like Fairway Collector (a card game) and or really just any program I open and run.

The BSOD crashes offer very little information and it seems to give a different reason each time - here is a list of the last few:
BAD_POOL_HEADER
KERNAL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAIL
KERNAL_EVENT_TRACING
DISTRIBUTEDCOM
SERVICE_CONTROL_MANAGER

It never points out the actual driver or file that caused it. I ran verifier to tax my drivers and force a Blue Screen to find out which drivers are causing trouble, but other than putting my system into an endless BSOD loop with DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION I couldn't find any other useful information like what was actually causing it. I do not know if verifier created a log file o... Read more

Hello,

I left home for a few days over Thanksgiving, and when I came back I found that my computer was behaving oddly. I built the computer myself only this May, so I'm quite upset that it's already having performance problems.

First, the specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500 3.30 GHz (quad-core)
RAM: 4 GB
Mobo: Asrock P67 Extreme
GPU: Ati Radeon 5770 1G
HDD: Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s with NCQ Solid State Hybrid Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148591

Basically, what is happening is that the computer will frequently hang for one, two, or even three seconds while performing basic tasks. I first noticed it while watching videos on YouTube, and now it?s very obviously happening with everything I do on the computer. The computer had been performing wonderfully up until that point; it just developed this problem all of a sudden.

Here?s a breakdown of the performance issues that I?ve noticed:

Startup: Startup seems to take longer to get from power off to desktop.
Watching streaming video: The video will frequently freeze for a couple of seconds, but the audio will continue as normal.
Clicking: When I hover over something with the mouse, it sometimes takes a second or two for the item to be highlighted. Computer occasionally hangs when clicking on anything: a link, a program icon, etc.
Scrolling: Sometimes hangs when scrolling with mousewheel, even on pages with simple text.
Opening progr... Read more

A:PC suddenly started hanging frequently

First thing I'd do is a system restore to before the issue started happening, if that doesn't resolve it continue bellow.

Avast doesn't catch everything, personally I'd try scanning the system with other trusted tools like malwarebytes, superantispyware and even combofix. If the problem is not malware related I'd update/reinstall your video and audio drivers. Might as well update your SATA (chipset) drivers as well in case it is related to accessing your hard drive.

If that doesn't resolve the issue I'd try disabling all startup items and non-microsoft services in msconfig and see if the problem clears up. If it does then it's something starting with the system causing issues, go through the list and use process of elimination to determine the problematic program.

I'm not familiar with your particular hard drive but it may be a problem with it if other people are having the same issue with that drive. If you have the know how and parts available you could clone your existing windows installation onto another traditional mechanical hard drive and boot off it, see if the issue continues. Do you have your windows installed on the SSD component and everything else on the HDD?

First of all, 
Hi, brand new user from Canada here.  I Looked at a few topics to see what I stumbled upon and I was impressed! Happy to be a new member and hope to use this site often! (I know this isn't introduction, I just find it more polite to say hi before asking from you guys!)
Well there we go, recently my gaming computer started slowing down, skipping frames when the action became intense (Sc2 Extreme settings full Zerg army, for exemple), which it didn't ever do before! I'm having trouble finding what might be the issue and it's starting to bug me. So I came for hints! 
As you can probably tell by the topic's location I'm running Windows 8, the specs should be detailled in the picture attached with the topic. Other than that I guess I'll include a OOKLA speedtest and the webpage describing the computer's hardware. I've ran CCleaner and repaired. Did a system restore from before the supposed slowdown time. Cleaned the hardware (We own 2 cats, dust and cat hairs were "obstructing" the different vents [Nothing clogged or anything like that, just a little bit dusty]). Other than that I don't remember doing anything else whilst trying to fix my problem! 
I was wondering if it could've been software related (Os mainly) and if not what could be the cause? 
Oh, also, I have Norton Internet Security installed and up to date.
 
Thanks for any help! And if any more reports, results, info, etc. is required I'll be happy to follow instructions! ... Read more

Welcome,
I'd suggest that you put IS into silent ode while gaming. The other choice being to go into your settings and have the program ignore the game.

A week ago, I finally gained a broadband connection (ADSL). It has been working perfectly this week, until now. My system is Windows 2000 Pro. I am running a small network through a Belkin modem, and a proxy server (which hasn't been running during most of these problems, but didn't affect them when I did start it...). I am NOT running a server.

For some odd reason, I'm suddenly having trouble with my system slowing almost to a stop, because services.exe is taking up 100% of my CPU's time. I've updated and run SpyBot, same with Norton Antivirus. I've uninstalled and reinstalled ZoneAlarm, newest version. I've reinstalled the modem drivers.

The problem seems to be related to my broadband connection somehow. When I start the BT Broadband connection, the program has started to hang, slowing the system to a stop, then suddenly freeing it up after 5 - 10 minutes. This happens whether or not NAV and ZA are actually running.

Most recently, I stopped mad.exe, which freed up the system, and it has been working fine . I've never noticed mad.exe in my processes before, and as I mentioned I'm not running 2000 Server. A previous time, stopping mad.exe did not affect the hanging BT Broadband connect dialog...

I also run DUMeter, it doesn't seem to be showing unusual network activity when the slowdown happens, so coupled with the negative scans of NAV and ZA, I don't think it is spyware or a virus.

But what is it? If it is mad.exe... Read more

A bit of background about the program before I continue. It's called GHTCP (Guitar Hero Three Control Panel). It's used in conjunction with Guitar Hero III for the PC to insert custom songs into the game. For about a year this program was working flawlessly, until one day it crashed and hasn't worked since.

I just started up the program one day and it crashed before it could load up. I uninstalled and reinstalled several times, using normal installation and Windows Install CleanUp Utility but nothing worked; it kept crashing. It requires at least .NET Framework 2.0 to function. For a while I thought it was that, but after talking with Microsoft we've come to the conclusion that it's the program and not my .NET Framework.

So I've tried a lot of different things and nothing has worked. I installed Debugging Tools for Windows and debugged the program when it crashed, and here are the text files in a .zip: Crash Logs.zip

Here's the program itself if anyone wants to install it and inspect it: GHTCP_V2.0.zip

Please help.

My PC was running fine until yesterday and I'd finally got DCS World running OK but then I disconnected my 2nd HDD (which was too slow for DCS and was throwing up UDMA CRC errors, possibly due to the e-SATA enclosure it's in) and since then I have DCS crashing, BSOD, AMD Fuel service crashing and just now, a BSOD referring to Memory Management whilst editing a text file.

I've had my Phenom II X4 955 OC'd to 3.8Ghz for ages and I just tested it's stability with OCCT, so I don't think that's the problem (it's well cooled with a TRUE rev.c and doesn't go above 55c anyway). My 8GB DDR3 has been running at 1600Mhz with the NB at 2400Mhz, with CPU-NB and NB at 1.3v for just as long, so I don't see why that should suddenly be the problem. I've reset the NB to 2000Mhz and Auto voltage for now though. I disabled e-SATA in the BIOS after I disconnected that drive but I can't see that would be causing problems. I uninstalled PhenomMSRTweaker just in case, but the last crash happened after I'd done that and rebooting, so it doesn't seem connected.

My computer decided it would surprise me by suddenly turning itself off earlier and refusing to turn on when asked. Nothing happening when power button pressed: no fans whirring or POST beeps.

I figured a power problem at first, having had a few issues last year that cost me a new PSU and a graphics card. I swapped power lead A for a second one from my guitar amp, B, and that failed to initilise the computer either. "[email protected]", I thought, "PSU gone again." However I then plugged power lead B back into my amp and that would now not turn on either.

Guessing this meant a fuse issue, I nicked one from a perfectly good lamp and swapped it for the fuse in power lead B, proved it still worked in the amp, then connected it up to the computer. As soon as it was in the fuse popped (I heard it this time) and nothing worked.

Short of tearing apart all my household appliances, I'm out of fuses to keep testing this problem, but any ideas on the cause of the issue would be a great help. As far as I see the possibilities are:

Bad PSU - needing replacing
Parts grounding inside the case
Dodgy motherboard
Static build-up

I was going to take the PSU and mobo out of the case and test it in a safe environment to see if it could boot with as little in as possible. What else will I need to test this, and would it be possible to test the PSU on its own, completely without the motherboard.

A:PSU Has Started Killing Fuses Suddenly

First of all I have no idea what power lead A or power lead B is! Are you speaking of some type of inline fuse? None of the desktop power supply cords I have seen have an inline fuse. The male end of the cord plugs into the source of power, and the female end plugs into the power supply. Overcurrent protection should be located internally in the power supply.

Do the fuses you are changing have the same amperage rating as the original?
