Wi-Fi Connection Flipping from 2.4ghz to 5ghz

Q: Wi-Fi Connection Flipping from 2.4ghz to 5ghz

Hi everyone!

This is my first post here, so apologies if I am not providing the correct/enough information at the outset.

I will be happy to provide as much information and in a timely manner as prompted.

The crux of the issue, is that recently the 2.4ghz and 5ghz connections in my home are only working one at a time. Meaning, I can be connected to 2.4ghz, but am unable to disconnect the same device from 2.4ghz and connect to my 5ghz network if I chose to. This is not a device compatibility thing, as an example I have experienced this on an iPhone XS.

Now, the interesting thing, is that when connected to my 2.4ghz for example, the connection will frequently drop, and then if I select 5ghz, my connection to the internet will be successful.

If I were to go back to 2.4ghz it will not connect.

After a while the 5ghz will drop and I will revert back to 2.4ghz.

It is incredibly obnoxious.

Please help!

A: Wi-Fi Connection Flipping from 2.4ghz to 5ghz

It's either a problem with the radio in your router, or a problem with the networking components of your laptop. Borrow a router from a friend and see if the problem continues, if your friend's router works, then the problem is isolated to your router - buy a new one. If your friend's router doesn't work, then it is a problem with your laptop.

I thought I had a double NAT problem, online somewhere it said go into Bridge Mode, CSR said the ISP router is already in that mode.

I have a cable router as my ISP, hooked up to a ASUS router (2.4GHz and 5GHz) for the house. Have 10 devices on the ASUS. On the Cisco ISP router, I got my Desktop computer in port 2 running to my Ethernet port on the back of my computer, and ASUS in port 1 which goes to the blue input port on the ASUS. I turned off the WiFi on the Cisco router.

The question I have is how can I log into my ASUS router when hard-wired into port 2 on the CISCO router.
CISCO is 192.168.0.1 - ASUS is using port one 192.168.0.10, Computer is using port two 192.168.1.194
ASUS is 192.168.1.1 - Can only access this router when connected to it via WiFi.

Well I am connected to both now - the WiFi on the ASUS and hardwired to the CISCO.
I have both routers open. ASUS 192.168.1.1 and Cisco 192.168.0.1
This problem seems to be artificially solved.

I have recently acquired a faster USB adapter (NETGEAR N900) for my connection. I have a NETGEAR N600 router. I can choose from 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. My connection runs very well on 2.4Ghz, I have a limit speed of 144Mbps. However, with 5Ghz that limit is 300Mbps, which I thought it was great, but when I switched to 5Ghz I was only getting 54Mbps and weaker signal strength.

2.4 uses one channel, while 5 uses two channels. Could that be the problem? Again, I'm fine with the current 2.4, but I was just curious if there is a way to increase my speed. It's always nice to have faster internet

I thought that 5Ghz would always beat 2.4Ghz hands down on everything apart from distance. With this in mind I set my router to broadcast at 5Ghz and thought that my wifi would be much better as a result,but it wasn't.

I have my router and my PC in the same room a few meters from each other, and while I was using 2.4Ghz I would always get 90% signal strength,but when I changed to 5Ghz instead of my signal getting to 100% it went to 70%? My router is capable of both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz so why is it that 2.4Ghz is better than 5Ghz when I have been told that it should be the other way around?

I was told that microwaves, cordless telephones and other electronic devices use the 2.4Ghz frequency range and this causes intereference and as such causes a loss of signal.

5Ghz I was told is free of other electronic noise so it is much better and you will always get a stronger signal. The one thing which I was told that made 2.4Ghz better than 5Ghz was the fact that legal restrictions on 5Ghz routers meant that the amount of power they could use to output a signal meant they were not so good over long distances, and in some countries it was even illegal to use 5Ghz frequency.

A:2.4Ghz vs 5Ghz puzzle?

The higher the frequency, the more power it takes to emit said frequency in comparison to lower frequencies. If you have a decent router, however, it shouldn't make a difference which band you transmit. Just because the router CAN use the 5GHz band doesn't mean it'll operate best on it.

I have an issue with the Wifi connection, but it is only problematic when I'm connected to 2.4Ghz networks.My laptop is running with a Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260. When connected to 5Ghz networks no problem at all, but when the laptops connects to 2.4Ghz networks the internet either does not work at all, or it is at such a low speed it is impossible to be productive. Especially if I'm not near the router as it then automatically shifts to 2.4GHz due to better signal. The issue is present with any network - not just my home network. I have no issues with other devices (PC's, Mac's and smartphones) at home; only this specific laptop. I have chosen 5Ghz as the prefered option, and the driver is up to date. What to do?

I am having an intermittent issue with my Asus RT-AC88U router (purchased about 4 months ago). The issue started about a week ago and there have been no changes I have initiated to the router or my Windows 10 Pro PC.

I noticed it first on my phone when at home, it would connect to WiFi (2.4GHz) just fine but said under the connection that internet was not available. 5GHz and wired connections had internet just fine. Resetting (power cycling) the router did not fix it but sometimes it seemed to fix it's self. Last night I had no WiFi on 2.4 but this morning it's fine. My provider is Comcast but if it was Comcast I think the issue would be on 2.4 and 5.

I contacted Asus via their support chat and the tech. had me change some setting and I figured that fixed it till the problem showed up again a day and a half later.

Has anyone had a similar issue and if so found a fix? Is this a router hardware issue and I should contact Asus for a replacement?

Thanks for the help!!

I bought a D-link DIR 825 router, having read claims that, on ONE wireless network, it runs 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies SIMULTANEOUSLY, and somehow determines for itself how to apply those frequencies to what I'm trying to achieve on the network.

D-link's own support contact denies that this is possible, which appears to contradict D-link's claims about the DIR 825 and what I have read about the product online. They are saying that, indeed, you can use both frequencies at once, but on DIFFERENT machines, i.e. that a single machine cannot be simultaenously connected to both frequencies.

For the life of me, I can't see how to connect to both frequencies at the same time. When setting the DIR 825 up using the relevant wizards, it treats the 2.4GHz and 5GHz as two separate wireless networks. I can then connect each of my computers to one or the other, but apparently not both.

Any help would be enormously appreciated!
 

A:D-LINK DIR 825: how to connect to 2.4GHz and 5GHz simultaneously

They imply two separate transceiver circuits insted of just one that switches transmitting frequency.
Traffic for the 5GHz will be faster with a separate SSID and transmitter., since you will cut out the delays caused by the transceiver switching frequency and handling the slower 2.4GHz traffic.

Your problem is that the computer's wireless adapter can only connect to one SSID and IP address.
You can set up alternate connections for your wireless adapter using a different SSID and IP address for the separate frequencies and switch back and forth, but this is not what you want.

To connect your computer the way you want you would need to have two wireless adapters on the computer.
Set one up using the 2.4GHz SSID and IP address as a default for general wirless use.

Setup the other one using the 5GHz SSID and IP address.

You would need to then set up routing on your computer so that programs that need to use the 5GHz will connect to it.

Hello Windows Gurus,

I'm starting to design a 5GHz Wireless Networks that will work together with an 2.4Ghz during the tests and transition phase. In order to keep the same configuration into the clients, we are choosing the same SSID, so we do not have to go one be one and change the machine configuration.

My question is, If there are two WLAN, one with 2.4Ghz and another with 5Ghz with the same SSID, how Windows will choose to which frequency to connect?! To the 2.4Ghz (the default frequency for most APs) or will it try to connect to the 5Ghz (Faster and Less Interference)?!

I also checked and the computers does have Wireless card that works with 5Ghz frequency.

A:Which wireless frequency Windows 7 considers the best? 2.4Ghz / 5Ghz?

Welcome to Seven Forums,

When you said two WLAN, are there 2 WAPs? One operates at 2.4GHz and another one at 5GHz? Perhaps, you're talking about a Dual Band Router that supports both Standards (11n and 11b/g)?

If your Wi-Fi adapters support both and they are configured with a mixed mode then they should be able to connect to the 5GHz band. The wireless mode can also be changed from your router and set it to just '5GHz' if you'd like all the wireless network devices to utilize the 5GHz.
FYI....802.11n supports both 2.4 and 5GHz clients but you must consider 5GHz than the 2.4GHz if you'd like to achieve a great network performance.

Hi,

I have a N600 Wireless Dual Band Router model WNDR3400. My question(s) is that if I connect with a wired cable, will I be connected to the 5ghz and avoid interference with those on the 2.4ghz connection?

For example, I have a wired connection with my Playstation 3 but i believe the Playstation 3 incapable of detecting the 5ghz when I do a wireless scan. Does this mean when I connect with a wired cable with the ps3 I use the 2.4ghz connection with other users and getting interference if they're doing something like streaming?

And finally, if my Laptop is unable to detect the 5.ghz connection does that mean I need some sort of adapter? Or does it have to do something with the settings. Its enabled and is on the default channel.
[Sorry one more question, where do I go to see who is currently using the internet connection in the setup]

I want to upgrade my home network to support HD streaming over Wifi. I am considering getting an 802.11ac router and replacing my laptops Wifi network card with one that supports the new Wifi 802.11ac standard.

On my home network I want to connect a TV set top box to the router over Cat6 but my laptop is the only device that will be connecting over Wifi. I have a Dell Inspiron 7520 laptop. It has an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Wifi card which supports dual stream but only one band: 2.4Ghz.

It looks like my laptop only has two internal antenna cables and for this reason I am thinking I cannot avail of triple stream Wifi-N 450Mb/s + 450Mb/s on a simultaneous dual band N900 router. I am stuck with a theoretical max of 300Mb/s on 2.4Ghz under Wifi-N and/or 866Mb/s on 5Ghz under Wifi-AC.

Here are my questions:

1. If I get a simultaneous dual band router can my laptop stream an HD movie on the 5Ghz band and at the same time download say a Youtube video on the 2.4Ghz band? I ask that because I'd like to get a such a router and preserve every ounce of bandwidth on its 5Ghz band for streaming movies from the set top box to my laptop... not have to share it for web browsing needs.

2. Would it be a better solution, or even possible, to install a third internal antenna in my laptop and get a triple stream 802.11n class Wifi card (such as the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300) and Wifi-N Class router OR should I buy an 802.11ac router and get the better bandwidth it offers...

A:Can my Laptop simultaneously connect to a 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz Wifi network?

You can stream HD movies fine at 150Mbps or even less but it depends on how much of the bandwidth is being used by your neighbors. This can be a big problem in some areas. You won't be able to use both frequency's at once.

Finding the best clean channels to use are what matters most on 2.4 GHz, channel bonding comes in handy sometimes but works best when the channels are mostly clear.

5Ghz is better in this respect because hardly anyone is using it so you tend to get all the bandwidth to yourself but the drawback with 5GHz frequency is that it won't go through walls worth a darn so it's really only useful for open area's outdoors or for large rooms.

I'm running the Asus AC66U router and the Asus PCI-e AC66 NIC which usually runs about 877.5-1.1 Gb. I can stream multiple YouTube video's while watching movies although I could also do this using the 2.4GHz frequency at 300Mbps.

Hi, I have a netgear WNDR3400 100nar router, dual band, 2.4ghz and 5ghz. I set up 2 connections. On the 2.4ghz I set up a WEP connection with 64 bit encryption for my wireless repeater (WNR2000). On the 5ghz i set up WPA2 for regular use. Unfortunately my computer does not support 5ghz or atleast i dont think it does. My samsung tv picks up the 5ghz so I connected to that, the macbook pro connects to the 5ghz. The other computer I want on the 2.4 ghz with the repeater. Hardlined via ethernet anything and everything works. For some reason 2.4ghz wont connect wirelessly and does not even give me the option to enter the hex key. just says unable to connect. the 2.4 doesn't work on anything (currently the repeater is offline until I can fix this issue). Infact, ignore the repeater info. I think there is a problem with the distribution of the IP addresses. Could they be overlapping between the 2.4 and the 5? The next item on the network (tv) using 5ghz, occupies sequence 2 under the ip address....whatever the default is it would occupy 192.168.1.2. I have reformatted my computer, uninstalled and reinstalled network drivers, as much as I could do with the computer itself so I'm assuming it is the router. I've disconnected it and reconnected it, reset it, redone the whole network multiple times, renewed the IP address. What is going on? Can anyone help me please.

My Windows 8.1 laptop, fitted with an Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN wireless adapter, suddenly stopped automatically connecting to my router a few months ago. I attempted to connect wirelessly to multiple other routers, all to no avail. My laptop could only connect through an ethernet cable/tethered hotspot. I then moved houses and got the internet set up on a new provider and suddenly my laptop could connect wirelessly again! Sadly, after trying to connect to my university's wi-fi, I found out that the laptop wasn't fixed, it was simply able to connect to my new 5Ghz internet but still had trouble connecting to 2.4Ghz access points.

I've tried everything I can to fix this as my laptop is too vital to my studies for me to be without it even for a short period of time, therefore sending it off for diagnostic and repairs is out of the question for now. So far I have tried:

Installing the latest Windows 8.1 drivers for the card (currently on v.15.14.0.2)
Replacing the wireless card with a new one (same make and model)
A complete, fresh re-installation of Windows 8.1

Running out of ideas on what to try and so turning to the community for help. Even if you're not sure of a fix, determining the problem itself would also be a big help. Thanks much in advance!

Hi all, this is my first post so I really appreciate all of the help and I can't tell you how much I've benefitted from the things I've read while lurking here over the last few days. Now, on to the show...

I have an HP workstation with a Q35 based mother board that had a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo in it (E6550), and I wanted to put the processor into my new rig, but still want to use the old comp. I have a Cedar Mill core Pentium 4 3.4GHz HT that's also socket 775 and I thought I'd just stick that in the HP since it doesn't need the better processor. Now, when I try to boot the HP, I get a couple of beeps and the fan just goes on overdrive and stays that way until I shut the thing off, but it never boots.

What's weird is that I can stick the Core 2 Duo back in and everything boots up just fine, but the thing just hates on that P4 like no tomorrow. Now I've used the P4 in my new rig just to make sure it wasn't shot, and it works like a charm. It's just in that workstation with the Q35 mother board that I'm getting nowhere. Any thoughts?
 

A:Cedar Mill P4 3.4Ghz in Q35 mobo won't boot. Swapped in for C2D E6650 2.4Ghz

Weird issue. Happened once before but I can't recall how I fixed it.

My old (but trusty) Acer 5920G which my wife uses for a lot of her work, which uses an Intel 4965 AGN card, has decided to play tricks on me.

Essentially if I try to connect to my 2.4G 801.11n network, I get an IP address assigned by the router/modem, but have the dreaded "no internet access" issue. I can't ping the router either.

I've tried the following:

1. uninstall and reinstall the driver
2. ipconfig /flushdns
3. ipconfig /release and then /renew
4. Reboot the router/modem
5. Disconnecting and reconnecting to the network, along with rebooting.

It has decided that the only network it will connect to AND give me an IP Address is my 5GHz network.

Oddly, if I connect to my 5Ghz network, then disconnect and reconnect to my 2.4Ghz wireless, I get access to the internet for a few minutes, before I lose internet access and have to reconnect to the 5Ghz signal.

Anyone have any ideas what could cause this and how to fix it? The 5Ghz network is great, except as I move further from the router so I'd prefer to connect to the 2.4...

Thanks!!

Hi everyone, I have a Linksys AE6000 Wireless USB adapter in my Laptop and it is 5Ghz enabled. When I first got my laptop it had Windows 8 on it, but before I did anything I reformatted it to Windows 7. Under Windows 7, this wireless adapter connected to my 5Ghz SSID on my router (the 2.4 and 5Ghz SSIDs are different from one another on my router) just fine and I was getting 500Mb/s speed over Wi-Fi. Then, I upgraded laptop to Windows 8.1, where adapter only detects my 2.4Ghz SSID, and now I only get 150Mb/s over Wi-Fi.

What do I do? I have tried reinstalling driver, using Win7 compatibility mode drivers, installing manually without GUI, I have made sure internal card is fully disabled, etc etc...

My specs are as follows:

Intel Core(TM) i7-3632QM Quad-core mobile CPU
8.00GB DDR3 RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4000
AMD Radeon 7670M GPU 2GB
Samsung Evo 120GB SSD
HP ENVY/Pavilion m6
Internal Wi-Fi card - Intel Wireless-N 2230
External USB Wi-Fi - Linksys AE6000
Router - Netgear R6300
Internet Connection - 150Mb/s down , 10 Mb/s up
Thanks

Here's a trick where somebody downloaded a Cisco driver to get it working in 8.1:

AE6000 No Longer works with Windows 8.1 - Linksys Community

Hope this helps you get it working!
Good luck,

Hello everyone, I definitely need some help here.

I have been using my WGA600N Linksys Gaming Adapter to connect my Xbox 360 S to my wireless router two floors above for years now. The main reason I bought it was to give the 360 access to the 5 GHz frequency on my dual-band routers, which I have heard (and experienced) is better for wireless gaming than a 2.4 frequency.

However, after switching routers from the old Linksys E3000 to the new EA4500, I can no longer access the 5 GHz connection through this adapter, or on the Xbox at all it seems. I have tried nearly everything I can think of that worked in the past (which seems to be anything except the lousy setup CD), mainly connecting the WGA600n to my laptop with an ethernet and accessing its setup utility using a static IP address (I hope I said that correctly). For example:
setting the 5 and 2.4 Ghz frequencies to either the same or different SSIDs
setting the password to these frequencies to matching and non-matching passcodes
changing the visibility of the 5GHz network from non-broadcasting to a broadcasting signal
setting the adapter to search for 5GHz only, not mixed 2.4/5
Those are the most obvious that I can think of, but there are probably more in the hours I have wasted on this. The strange thing is...
the adapter can connect to the 2.4 frequency, not the 5.

How do I know this? When trying to connect to a 'mixed' signal, the adapter constantly searches for channels (as far as I can tell). When connect... Read more

When my Carbon 5th is connected to 5 GHz Wifi it randomly resets (drops) after several hours (connection is being lost, Windows reports "Cannot connect to the network"). Sometimes it is possible to connect again manually, sometimes only reboot makes it work again. Connection to 2.4 GHz Wifi always works totally fine. I've seen several similar topics on Intel forums with the same issue, looks like it touches several Intel WiFi adapters. No solution have been found except using only old 2.4 GHz protocols or external WiFi adaptors. I tried different drivers and many parameter sets on my router - nothing solves this issue. It is very sad to have only 20mbps with 2.4 GHz while new standards offer more than 100mbps. Did you face this issue? Any ideas to solve it out?

My question is I have a computer with 2.4ghz as well as 5ghz, my router is a dual band 2.4 and 5ghz wireless n and no matter what I do my computer will not recognize the 5ghz network.

Background info: I have read through many forums and tried many different solutions none of which seem to work. My computer is 2 weeks old (hp). I have gone into device manager and clicked on the network card, properties, and advanced tab to discover my computer does support both 5ghz and 2.4ghz, as well both are enabled. My router is the wrt601n linksys dual band N wireless router. I have tried every setting possible with that router including : mixed, n only, a only, 20 or 40 all different widths and no matter what combination my computer will only pick up the 2.4ghz. Both drivers/software for my computer and router are up to date with the lastest. I have also tried close to and far away, distance and range are not issues either. It's becoming a major issue not having both bands working because we having gaming equiptment that when somebody is playing it kicks the other person off of the internet entirely! I am at a loss here on what to do please help!!!

A:Computer won't recognize 5ghz router (computer has 5ghz), windows 7

Go into your cards'
'Computer management' > 'Device Manager' > right click on your wireless card > 'properties' menu > 'advanced'

Check that 2.4/5ghz is set up for your correct country band! (UK = 1-13)

To turn on Dual band wireless 'n'
My linksys 2.4/5 pci card has a menu item called "Multimedia Gaming environment" > 'enable'

This enables dual band - top speed @ 300!

Whenever I log back into my Vista machines after having locked the screen (windowskey-L) to go AFK for a while, Vista takes about 10-20 seconds to flip through all of the windows for some unobvious reason. This is really irritating. Does anyone know why it does this, and whether (and how) it can be disabled? I've searched on numerous occasions and even asked on other fora but no answer has been forthcoming yet.

Hello,

I have a Lenovo T400 laptop with HD Radeon 3400 series video.

I suppose the problem started after I did a fresh install of Windows Vista but I can't be for sure. I never had a problem with the screen flipping (180 degrees or "upside down") before on the previous OS so I'm assuming it has something to do with the fresh install.

The problem:

After a restart of the computer, when it gets to the login screen of Vista the screen flips upside down. The problem doesn't happen every single time I restart but it's random. Once the screen flips though, I can't get it to flip back to right side up unless I do a Windows Restore to a point where I know it was right side up.

I know about the "hotkey" that flips the screen (my hot key used to be "ctrl+alt+up/down/left/right"). However, after the fresh install of Vista, the hotkeys do not respond.

I know of a fix that works for sure and that is to install the Catalyst Control Center (CCC) program for my HD Radeon 3400 series (built into the motherboard, obviously) and go through the options built into the CCC program to flip the screen to my choosing. I tried everything to get the CCC running on my computer but whenever I install a copy, I cannot get it to open; it crashes/freezes every time I try to open it.

I've tried to look for a native screen-flipping function built into Windows OS but have failed finding it (I looked everything in the Control Panel and Display Properties)

A:Screen keeps flipping

The "flip-screen" function is not built-in to Windows Vista. It's a function of the ATI graphics adapter & it's driver, & configured through the Catalyst Control Centre.

The correct driver is a modified ATI Catalyst driver made exclusively for Lenovo and is therefore available only from Lenovo, not from the ATI website. You should never obtain laptop drivers from anywhere other than the laptop manufacturer.

It's here: Lenovo Support - ThinkPad Switchable Graphics Driver for Windows Vista (64-bit and 32-bit) - ThinkPad T400, R400, T500, W500

I just spent the last 30 minutes searching for this issue and can't seem to find anyone else who is having this problem.  The issue I'm having is that whenever I flip the lid to go into tablet mode, the machine seems to go into sleep or hibernate.  It doesn't do it 100% of the time, but it will always do it when I really need to go into OneNote to take some quick notes but instead waste time having to flip it around again, log in, and flip back into tablet mode a second time.  Occasionally, it will shut down completely instead of going to sleep, or resume but with a blank screen, forcing me to manually power it off by holding the power button, but these occurances aren't nearly as frequent as it going into sleep.  Another thing I noted is that when it resumes from the sleep mode it goes into, sometimes the Lenovo Battery Guage will show up with a red X, as though a battery isn't detected.  I find it odd because the machine functions just fine on battery.  If I plug in the AC power in this state, it will recognize the AC power as plugged in, but the battery gauge's status of "no battery" does not change.  If I open the battery app, it properly detects the battery and its charge level.   Things I have done to attempt resolution:* Disable all sleep/hibernate mode options in Windows Power Manager* Checked all applicable settings in the Lenovo Settings app* Ensure system was up to date with all Windows Updates, as well as...

A:X1 Yoga going to sleep after flipping lid

I guess I've come up with a diagnosis and a partial solution.   The problem apparently was the computer constantly failing to see the battery installed.  It would randomly detect the battery as not being installed, even when I was on battery and the machine stayed on just fine.  The battery has been functioning perfectly in the sense that I could operate off of AC power without issue, but the Power Gauge would show no battery being detected, then eventually it would come back and be fine, showing the proper charge level.   The reason the machine kept "turning off", or in this case Hibernating, was because Windows is set to either go to Sleep or Hiberate when it reaches the "Critical battery action" percentage in the Power Manager.  Because the battery would no longer be detected, the "Critical battery action" would kick in because it would think the battery is completely out of juice.  Unfortunately, Windows does not allow you to set this action to "Do nothing", offering only the options of "Sleep" or "Hibernate".   The partial solution:I followed a procedure I found for another model.  It involved the following steps: 1) Go into the BIOS2) Disable the battery3) Shut down machine and disconnect the battery4) Plug in AC power and boot into the OS5) Shut down the machine, disconnect AC, and press the power button 10 times6) Reconnect the battery and AC and boot into Windows So far, after doing that proce...

I am running a Dell 9150 w/ XP Home. The Outlook I am running when I click on the Help button and then choose about says Outlook 2002. Then when I choose System Info and select 'Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 that totally confuses me! I can't tell if I have 2002 or 2003!

When I got this Dell, it came preloaded with XP HOME. I was under the impression I didn't have MS Word, Excel, etc. since it was showing Corel Word Perfect. So being the Computer Illiterate that I am I loaded my own discs of XP Student/Teacher which has all of that. Then it started doing the misfires I will tell you about in a minute so I uninstalled just the MS Outlook that I had loaded on. I think it may have originally come with its own Outlook and that may be what I am using.

Having given the background here's the misfires it does:

I will be working in one profile (personal) retrieving emails and such and then I go to close out and restart so I can choose my business profile to get business emails, etc. and it immediately opens up to my personal profile WITHOUT any prompt for a profile to be chosen. WHY?

Running Windows 7 x64, build 7100.

My Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic will randomly swap stereo channels on reboot. This is using the digital output to an external DAC. Luckily, I can just reverse the rca plugs in the back of the DAC to compensate, but it's annoying.

The reversal is system-wide - in the control panel stereo test, in games, videos, everything. I'm using the latest Creative drivers, which are 2.18.0013.

However, I don't think it's anything to do with the soundcard. I tried disabling it and going back to the onboard sound, and this does the same thing.

Any ideas on what might stop this?
