Wifi no internet

Q: Wifi no internet

Hello
Sometimes when I'm gaming online my connection gets lost and my wifi gives me no internet signal but there is internet on my other devices, I solve it by clicking on airplane mode twice (on and off again ) then the Internet comes back . Is there a permanent solution to this ? It's very annoying when playing online
Thanks

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.)

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.

So I got a new router yesterday to replace the old one, and I've been working on it for a long time. But I can't seem to figure out why there isn't any internet connection. The new WiFi Router (D-Link DR-842) Shows it is connected to the internet (green light) but in the setup page, it says disconnected. Could the PPPoE details be causing this? As far as I know everything is correctly set up except for the internet part.

Although I am connected to our wireless network on the Folio 13, there is no internet connection. I can, however, connect to the internet via Wifi on two other household laptops, both of them HP, so I believe the problem is with the Folio itself. I can also connect to other computers on the network on the Folio, but something is preventing it from getting on the internet. I can only get the internet via hardwired ethernet connection on the Folio. I have tried the following fixes, multiple times, without success: -Run the Windows troubleshooter for Internet/Network. It says the connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken. (But not on other wifi computers here--works fine.)-Reboot/Reset the modem.-Disable/Renable the wifi adapter (Intel Centrino Wireless N 1030)-Update wifi adapter driver (it says driver is up to date)-Uninstall/reinstall wifi adapter-Remove Wifi Network from list of available networks; reboot, add this network back in-Roll back all Windows updates from the past month-Searched self-help forums for a possible solution And yes, the wifi keyboard light is blue, not orange. Can someone help please?

I have been trying for some time to accomplish the title result. I'm not techie enough to do it.

What I want is to be able to use a Tablet to read in the rear of my home (which is out of range for incoming wifi signal.)

If I can set up the computer to do this, I will cable connect to a router in that area.
I have two computers and could use either.

1.a PC running XP (should update to windows 8.1, but have never bothered to do that, since XP works just fine. (I had this computer sharing to the router, when I had DSL internet connection, using Windows wizard to set it up) Couldn't get it to work when I switched to WIFI internet access) I could switch to win 7 or 8.1 if that would help.

2. a Lap Top running WIN 8.1,

Any help is appreciated.

A:Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

Due to the age of XP this is not the best option for what you want to do

Either windows 7 or 8.1 have access to Internet connection sharing (ICS) built in

To use ICS you need at least two connections to the local LAN, these can be any mix of wifi or Ethernet.

As you have a laptop you likely already have a system to use for this

There is a tutorial explaining the basics ... and more on this site

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 with Windows 7. I have been using Time Warner Internet. It worked fine until yesterday. WiFi stopped working out of the blue. When I tried, wired connection works pretty well. I do not recall any significant changes to my computer while this happened. So now I can connect to the wifi hotspot but it says "No Internet Connection". When I connect the LAN wire with the WiFi router, internet works. The moment I remove it, it says No Internet Access, although computer is connected to the hotspot and signal is very well.

The drivers are being shown as up to date in device manager.

I tried following instructions given here: http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-Winsock-and-TCP/IP
This didn't work. Problem persists.

Hi All,
I have established a Virtual Wifi Miniport and would like to share my laptops internet via the Miniport. Whenever I connect my android phone with this access point, it works perfectly for a few minutes and then all of a sudden there is no internet on the phone. The phone remains connected to the laptop hotspot but the internet access is no more there. Now at this point if I disconnect the connection between my phone and the hotspot and then again try to reconnect back again, it wont even connect. The phone will keep on searching and shows connecting status but can never connect. I have tried all sorts of softwares connectify, virtual router, intel mywifi and even tried to create a hotspot from the cmd using netsh command. All the hotspots work in the exact same way intially works perfect but maybe after half an hour internet is gone. I have completed all the steps properly even changed the settings in the laptop adapter with interet access to allow other networks to connect but nothing seems to work. I have a Windows 7 Machine and my wireless adapter is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless N-100 and the drivers are up to date according to windows. I know that its a problem with my laptop/OS or something because my android phone can connect and remain connected( without losing internet ) to the connectify hotspot in my wifi enabled desktop PC.I am breaking my head over this for the past 15 days even formatted my system once but no use. Please help if you can..please!

I've been battling this particular issue for a couple of weeks now without much success. I have a custom built desktop where my WIFI connection will deteriorate to the point where internet (and gaming over Steam, etc...) will be either painfully slow or unable to load pages at all. Windows claims throughout that I am connected to my WIFI network with internet access and good signal, even when I cannot reach any internet pages.

This problem has happened at 2 different locations (on different WIFI networks), and with 3 different WIFI adapters (TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 PCI, TRENDnet TEW-684UB USB, Edimax EW-7811Un). At both locations, I have another laptop and a phone that can connect to the WIFI network just fine. I even got a couple of the adapters to work fine on the laptop without the issue.

I've found that disabling NetBIOS seems to temporarily improve matters (I'd read elsewhere that that can cause issues), but it has not resolved the problem. Also: I'm getting DNS errors in the Windows 7 event logs:

"Name resolution for the name XXXX timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."

Hey everyone, sorry if this is in wrong area.

So today I bought a secondhand computer. It's a Toshiba Satelite L875D-S7230.

When I connect it to my home wifi it connects no problem and says 'internet access' when I hover over the icon. However when I open open google chrome or internet explorer and type in a site, it takes a little while then says this page cannot be displayed or this web page is unavailable.

The guy I bought it from says he had no issues. And I know it's not the internet because I'm using the internet to post this from phone.
I've tried a few ideas that worked for other people on other forums like using cmd box but to no avail.

Has anyone got any idea why the computer is being such a turd?? Can anyway give advice on how to fix the problem? Thank you all so much!

So here is what I would like to see if I can do. I have a WiFi close by from the house can I connect the camera to my WiFi in the house to connect to the camera?

One important snag, I can't access the home router to reconfigure, as this is provided by my ISP. Should I connect a router to the ISP router to have access to port forwarding and other router functions?

You can access the router (any router to include ISP routers) via the web based page. You access by typing 192.168.x.x where the x's are either 0 or 1 or some order of that.

Hey guys... I'm at my wits end here and hoping someone can help me out.

I've been happily able to switch between my Ethernet and WiFi connections at home with no issues forever. When I'm in my home office I am connected via Ethernet because it's a considerably faster connection but, every so often, I bring my laptop to another room and connect via WiFi. Never has this been an issue.

4 days ago, I grew tired of the constant task bar pop-ups from Avira Free AV and decided to kill it and give Panda Free AV a try. Things had been going swimmingly since then so I had no reason to think there was an issue... until today that is. For the first time since I installed it, I hopped downstairs to play with my son and thus connected via WiFi. Every other device in this house (and there's a lot of them) is connected via WiFi with no issues but lucky me, upon switching to WiFi I see the dreaded yellow ! over my connection. I disconnect and reconnect a few times. I even go so far as to forget the network. Nothing. So, I run upstairs and power cycle the modem. This is where things get weird....

Power cycling the modem/router worked so I went on with life. After an hour or so I shut down my laptop and all was right with the world. Then 2-hours later, I boot it back up and wouldn't you know it the dang yellow ! is back. It is at this point that I realize it's gotta be something going on with my laptop.

Hi there,

Just to verify, your computer can connect to the wireless network it keeps on saying no internet connection? If so, try connecting to your router via ethernet using a network cable. See if you're able to get an internet connection using a network cable.

OK ..

im sure this is something silly and simple.. at least I hope it is.

I have a laptop with wireless. ... I can search for wifi networks.. like the airport and starbuck... find the list of networks available.. and hit connect.. and it says conected.

Then when I open up my Web Browser.. nothing ! Page cannot be displayed. as tho i have no connection. I have tried it with a few different places .. like the public wifi places and still nothing.. and even on a private network in my friends house

Im sure its a setting or something.. though I have the automatically detect settings selected in the internet options.

Its like the computer is connecting to the network.. but yet its realising that OH I should be using this connection for the Internet !!!

Im pretty good at sorting out problems with PCs / Windows thou I have no expierence of wireless networks so am totaly lost.

Hope this makes sense !
Thanks

A:Connected to WIFI but no Internet ?

When you seem to be connected, open a Command window and type
ipconfig /all

Does your wireless show "Yes" for "Dhcp Enabled" and for Autoconfiguration Enabled ? If not, you need to go into your TCP/IP properties and set to 'obtain IP auto' and 'obtain DNS auto.'

If your wireless is showing an IP of 169.254.x.y it did not successfully get an IP configuration from the router or server. Is there a chance that the wrong driver is installed--maybe one for the wrong region of the world (for example, US and Canada use channels 1-11 while most of Europe uses channels 1-13).

If not the above, post the ipconfig here. One way to do so is to type
ipconfig /all >C:\ipconfig.txt
This will put the results in the ipconfig text file on your hard drive; you can open it with notepad to copy and paste here.

i have tried restoring to a prior restore point, but that fails. i have tried UNDOing the restore point i used, and THAT fails. i have tried disabling my antivirus, and i have tried running the restore in safe mode.

my last resort is to bomb my system to a backup from last sunday. but i'm wondering... will that even fix it???
DETAILS:-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i haven't (yet) tried unplugging the router/modem (it's a time warner 2-in-1), because every other device on the wifi connects to the internet just fine.

besides the wireless on the modem, we also have a mac airport that is connected to the router/modem. i can connect to either one, i can switch at will... but nothing, of course, makes a difference.

I've recently found that my android phone can create a WiFi hotspot to share the internet and started streaming media over my new network I've created. But one of the applications needs my firewalls to be turned off to be able to view the files. I'm not too comfortable with my computer unprotected while on my phones internet.
If I use the connectify app to create the WiFi hotspot without any internet it also works but then my phone cant receive emails and so on.

Will there be a way to connect to my phones WiFi hotspot with the internet still on on my phone but block internet access on the computer. And then when i want to go onto the internet just swich it back on.
Its realy quite a big hassle to switch between networks and so forth.
Any help will be appreciated.

A:WiFi Internet blocking

Hi slugger7,

Are you aware that Hot spot or tethering is an optional feature on most of the big Providers such as AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon if not please find out from them if not you'll see the extra charge from your bill?

when i try to open up a browser the browser screen just says that the webpage im trying to access is either being edited or has been moved to a new domain. the error code is 137 if that helps oh yeah and im using chrome. only internet explorer x64 works!!! i HATE internet explorer. someone told me that this error could be a virus posing as my proxy then routing my internet traffic back to itslef, therefore making it seem like i have internet wvwn though i cant get online. HELP i need to get online on google chrome. oh and yes, i already tried normal internet explorer, safari, firefox, and opera. on the taskbar it says i have wifi but clearly no. help me

A:WiFi works, but no internet?

Have you tried the following?

1) Type %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome (in the run command)
2) Delete the User Data folder (warning backup any important bookmarks etc... as it will delete everything in other words when you next launch chrome it will look like it has been installed for the first time)
3) Launch chrome - if the issue is fixed (), if not try step 4
4) Uninstall chrome (before you do this make sure you have another working browser as you will need it to install chrome again)
5) Reinstall chrome

P.S. I also recommend doing a virus scan and deleting any programs you don't need.

I have a HP desktop PCI bought from Wal Mart 2 to  3 months ago. It was getting online via a router eathernet cable. Over night it just stopped working. I'm not able to connect to the net. It picks up my router but not my internet. I had to call my internet provider and payed a high fee service call. They checked everything and it's my computer they said after several hours of testing and troubleshooting why my PC is not connecting to the Internet. I'm on my notebook so I'm limited to what I can do. Please help me. I also have 2 other questions to ask when I get this new PC back onlineThank you very much

Im looking for help on this problem:

I have BT 2WIRE wifi router (downstairs) that is connected to the internet and my laptop and PS3 are too via WEP.

However, i have installed Ubuntu on PS3 and wish to use ethernet as the wifi doesnt work on this version of Ubuntu without messing around with it.

So i have a second wifi router, the BT HomeHub (in my room), currently with no internet.

Basically i want to connect to the internet with the laptop over wifi using the BT 2WIRE, and i want to connect to the internet via ethernet with the PS3 using the HomeHub.

So i just need to wifi the internet to the second router OR i wouldnt mind connecting the PS3 through an ethernet on my laptop.

Please help, i will really appreciate it and will leave feedback, thanks!

Hey I've been having an issue lately, every time I turn on my computer or connect to the internet it connects me to my WIFI box that I have, I have it mainly for the xbox and people that want to use wifi around the house but my computer used to have its own "Connection" if you know what i mean? Like the connection looked like a little house haha and I used never have lag or delay issues because of it, but now whenever I turn on my computer or anything it automatically connects to my wifi. How could I change it back so that it connects to my actual internet? My internet is connectected from the wall straight to my computer. Thanks!

A:Wifi and My home internet

So you must have both a ethernet (wired) and wireless adapter on the machine. If you right click on the networking icon by the clock> open network and file sharing, on the left>change adapter settings. right click on the Wireless adapter and select: disable.

Maybe someone can help.  I just returned from a vacation overseas.  At the last hotel, which had free wifi, I logged in with their provided user ID and password.  I connected to the network, but could not get Internet access.  My other devices (iPod Touch, iPad) got the Internet just fine.  I had had Internet access at this same hotel a few days earlier.  At an intervening hotel, I couldn't get the Internet either (my other devices could), but I thought that might have been because the Internet was so slow there, barely above modem speeds from forty years ago.   Any idea what it could be?  I'm home, and obviously it is fine here.   I have an Envy 17t notebook.

A:WiFi connected but no internet

Hello and Welcome to Lenovo Community.
It looks as if there are some drivers for network on the Drivers and Software page for the U530 Ideapad (Touch). If that is your model, you could try installing those to see if it helps. Make sure you get the ones for Windows 10 when you search on that page.

My internet stopped working for all the softwares but Google Chrome. I searched some solutions online but I ended up making the situation worse and now I can't even connect to the wifi.
Basically I put the password and it connects, but the wifi icon has the yellow exclamation mark and it says "Unidentified network, no internet access".

I already tried uninstalling the network adapters from the Device Manager.. What should I do?

Thank you!

There are our laptops being used in this house, one of which (Dell Inspiron) won't connect to the WiFi. It also has a habit of shutting down. There is no WiFi problem with the other three. I have tried Googling the problem but nothing of much use was found.
 
Help would be much appreciated.  Thank you.

A:Can't access WiFi or internet. Help please.

Really silly question - but the wi-fi on this Inspiron is enabled ?  Surprising how often the obvious gets overlooked.
 
Go into 'Device Manager' and look for any yellow exclamation marks against your wi-fi adapter - click 'Start - RIGHT click on 'Computer' - click 'Properties' - click Device manager in the top left hand corner'. You will see an item 'Network adapters' with a + beside it. Click on the '+' to expand it and you should see your wi-fi adapter listed. If it has any sort of mark against it, double click on it and see if you can find any info on the problem. In any case, make a note of the maker and model. Problems in this area are usually caused by the drivers. Uninstall the drivers for it, and on another computer, go to the Dell web-site and download the wi-fi drivers for your Inspiron, copy them to some convenient location on the faulty computer then install them. Re-boot, and with any luck your wi-fi will be working again.
 
It is possible that the wi-fi unit itself has failed. If it is not physically built into the motherboard it may be possible to replace it with a new one. But the simplest and cheapest solution I have found is to use an external USB wi-fi dongle. These are widely available and fairly cheap, starting at under £UK 20 and going up.

I have an ASUS transformerbook T100 running Windows 10.

It was working absolutely fine but then stopped being able to connect to the internet. It has no problems connecting to wireless networks, I have tried it on 3 different ones. Every time it just says that there is no internet connection. All 3 of these networks are working fine with other wireless devices.

I have reset my router, and removed all security from it to no effect. I have also re-installed the WiFi drivers.

Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers

A:Can connect to WiFi but never the internet

Hi there,

Just to verify, your computer can connect to the wireless network it keeps on saying no internet connection? If so, try connecting to your router via ethernet using a network cable. See if you're able to get an internet connection using a network cable.

Hope everything works out well for you.

Hello Ill get right to the point real quick. Today I have been experiencing an odd occurance where my internet will randomly bump out on my Desktop(which I have a wireless USB card because the non existant LAN plug in the computer has) and my Laptops have had this issue. Now with that said my phones and Ipads dont have a problem connecting and using my 50mb down speed at all. My computers on the other hand work fine for a minute or two then drop the connection and then reconnect. But my Adapter is new and the laptops are newish. Now I am also looking into my provider but they have yet to get back to me because of the weekend coming up so I want to have this route covered. I have done the TCP/IP stack repair and I have done all the basic troubleshooting from Unplugging/restarting and all of that stuff. I will also paste my Config below. Anything helps. I will also update if a solution is found or if it was provider side. Thanks for looking guys!
