Computer disconnecting from wifi at fairly regular intervals.

Q: Computer disconnecting from wifi at fairly regular intervals.

Hello, first time posting here, after giving up trying to figure this out myself I searched for a good tech support site and found you guys. Anyway, this weekend, I had a strange issue with my router. It showed up on the connections list, but could not be connected to, resulting in a similar error to when the password is incorrect. Once I was able to access the router, or at least get the owner to reset it, it was reachable again, but ever since then I have been being disconnected every 10-30 minutes, sometimes more, sometimes less. I do not have any info on the router, since the situation is kind of complicated. My network adapter in the laptop has been working perfectly for as long as I have had it, so I do not think the issue lies there, but I have not ruled it out. I can run whatever tests can be done from the laptop itself if need be, though may need walking through how to do them, other than that I have little information available to me. Also of note, when I say disconnect, I do not mean that it goes to limited connection, but the connection just drops, and I have to reconnect.

Preferred Solution: Computer disconnecting from wifi at fairly regular intervals.

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.)

Older laptop disconnects from hotel wifi at regular intervals about every 45 seconds?

It is a dell d600. it supports wpa2 but i think there maybe a problem with tkip/aes or something. This is the second time I have stayed at a hotel with it. And it connects but then disconnects after 45 seconds or so, kind of like it is on a timer or something...

I have a newer laptop and it stays connected.

So anything I can do about this problem? Or I need a new wifi card? Thanks

My computer runs very slowly on regular intervals... every 5 minutes for 5 minutes (those stats an example, not timed). adding/ clearing memory, running spyware/adware, registry cleaners, defragging hasn't helped.

I have noticed a brief freezing period on my new laptop. My guess is that it is a software conflict, but I need some help isolating the problem and then fixing it. The freezing is very brief (1-3 seconds) and after, computer operation returns to normal. Task Mgr does show a spike pattern on the 3rd window under CPU usage history. I run about 91 processes, 2-4% CPU usage (spikes go to 10%) and 29% physical memory. My computer performance score is as follows:

Processor 7.6
Memory RAM 7.8
Gfx 7.3
Gaming Gfx 7.3
Primary hard disk 5.9

Someone told me that because I run a HDMI out to a monitor, that might account for the brief freezes. But this had not happened with a previous model ASUS laptop that I had before this one. And I don't notice the freezing all the time, just in the past week. But in that past week, I can't remember installing any software (other than the windows updates). I run Microsoft Security Essentials.

About a week ago, I did experience a situation where I had to do a hard reboot because windows had crashed and soft reboots would take me to an error screen. The hard reboot allowed me to run Windows normally from then on.

My computer specs are as follows, (can also be found in my profile):

ASUS G75VW
Intel Core i7 3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.30GHz
8.00GB RAM
Win 7 64 bit
NVidia GeForce 660M

Thank you

Hey there.

Right im not the best with computers so if any solutions aren't very explanatory il have to ask help from someone in my family that is; but none of them have been able to figure out this problem so far.

For several months now i have had a problem where for no apparent reason at intervals of I'd guess 2-3 minutes my computer "jitters". This is most detectable if i am playing music/watching something/playing a game as the sound and any animation/w.e jitters, like a multitude of mini freezes lasting a few seconds i suppose, but i can continue to move mouse/type as normal.

Its not a particularly serious problem so i have been ignoring it, but it is nonetheless irritating and if anyone has any suggestions i would be appreciative.

The only other possibly related incident i can think of to this was several months ago; about the same time a couple of times my computer failed to boot up and let me know by letting out a high pitched long beep before dying. It started up fine after a couple of attempts however and seemed to be running fine so i thought nothing of it.

I have run up to date virus scans (I have norton360) with no resulting problems, obviously using Vista, an up to date computer, and i have plenty of memory.

Any ideas?

A:Computer sound/animation "jitters" at regular intervals

U said its like a multitude of mini freezes lasting a few seconds.... so the computer doesn't freeze for sure, that means its only the "display" that jitters, not wat's happening in the background ( i meant processes)... unistall video drivers from dev manager---> sound, video game controllers, uninstall the driver software when it asks u to do so, restart the computer, generic vista drivers will load, right click, update driver software and then observe your computer. If its a laptop, use the ac adapter with a surge protector, power management could be bad... update the BIOS if already not done, if desktop, again use surge protector , update the BIOS ...check in safemode, if u get the same jitters... did u install SP1 already??

Hi guys,

My computers started doing this odd thing with the monitor, it stops sending data to the monitor at regular intervals of a few seconds, no idea what's going on :P I've replaced the monitor itself, so I know it's not that, and it does the same thing using the onboard graphics and with an AGP graphics card, the monitor works fine on other PC's and I'm pretty sure it's not a software issue, all the correct drivers are installed and I've even rolled back to a three month old system restore...

The PC is an old Fujitsu Siemens Scenic E600 with 1GB RAM (DDR2 I think) and a P4 processor, only things I've added to the PC is extra RAM and graphics/wireless cards. It appears the old monitor was fried by a spate of fuse box trips, so I'm trying to work out if that has killed something in the PC and if so, what exactly is broken...

Any help would be very appreciated :) I'm starting to go a bit mad as i work on my computer :P

Thanks!

Hello all
Hoping someone can help shed some light on the problems I'm having.
Recently up(down)graded to W10 and ever since I've had no end of instability issues resulting in BSOD's.
So far I've updated all my drivers which stopped the BSOD's for a few days but now they're reoccurring.
I can't identify a specific causation for them, of late they can occur just after startup, or within minutes/hours.

Look forward to any advice I can get.

First of all i'm not really sure if it's a processor problem or a software problem... so if i posted at hardware instead of software i m really sorry....
So i should start to explain the problem...: I have had a sony vaio laptop with a I7 proccesor and 6 gb ram for about 6 mounths and i have never had problem with the cpu... i would run out of ram before running out of cpu.... and now all of the sudden the cpu started spikeing at intervals of 3-5 minuntes for 10-20 sec when playing a game, any game... all my games...

So i started to investigate... :
1.I got Microsoft Sysinternals Process Explorer (i have some print screens but i m not allowed to post because this is my first post) and started hunting the process that was slowing me down... So i started to play a game and when i got the lag...(evrything slowed down.... even the sound....) alt tab... but to my surprise i didn't find a process... all the active processes were useing much more than they should have... (even a process that usually used <0,01 it was useing like 3-4 % of my cpu)
2. Then i left the laptop on and watched a movie and checked on the process explorer at a 10 minute interval.... the only process that i found useing like 30 % of my cpu was: Mscorsvw.exe
3. i scaned my computer 3 times with Microsoft Security Essentials (didn't find a thing) and i have been useing this program for a while... and never had a problem with it so i kinda trust it (on 3 diffrent computers)

Hello,
I am seeing an issue where any window I am working/watching something in, in any application, will deselect, causing me to have to click in the window to continue typing / scrolling / resume full screen / what have you. This is occurring at (seemingly exact) 40 second intervals, which I know from checking the time between each event while watching a video. It is extremely annoying.
Other potentially related symptoms that have popped up around the same time are the mouse cursor "arrow" will switch to the "loading arrow"  even while there is nothing for my computer to be loading. This seems to be out of sync with the deselecting. Additionally my Microsoft Security Essentials is telling me I haven't run a scan for a while, even after running multiple quick scans, and scheduled full scans every night at 2am.
I recently added the screencast extension for Google Chrome, but have removed it after encountering the issue.
I have tried using a different mouse and keyboard.
I have run scans with
§  Malware Bytes antimalware
§  Microsoft security essentials
§  Spybot Search and Destroy
and used the cleaner and registry cleaner utilities of CCleaner.

Hi everyone, I'm having some trouble with a number of games that I hope you can help me with.

The problem is that in multiple games (Dark Messiah of M&M, Max Payne 2, BF2142 demo and some more that I can't recall right now) I'm getting complete freezes out of the blue. The freezing usually occurs after around 3-5 minutes of gameplay. The freezes themselves usually last between 5 and 7 seconds, after which I can play for another 5 to 7 seconds before the game freezes again.

The fact that the freezing did not occur until I played the games for a while made me think it was a heat-related issue, and probaply with my graphics card. However, my nVidia temperature logger doesn't read temperatures any higher than 55C during gameplay. It could possibly be another piece of hardware that's overheating, but I'm not sure how to measure that. I've tried using RivaTuner to measure the heat, but I'm not sure if it shows me everything I need to know. The temperatures that it does display, however, are well within safe range.

The freezing/unfreezing does not occur while on desktop - only in games. I've performed multiple virus and adware scans, updated all my drivers (even tried older ones for my gfx card), but nothing helped.

The problem, by the way, just came out of nowhere. Earlier, I could play at least Max Payne 2 without problems on the exact same system without problems. If anyone has a suggestion it would be most welcome, s... Read more

this is a recurring problem with my HP laptop pavilion ze1210. i have a new 20 gig HD, running XP home, 512 RAM.

every time i clean reinstall the OS, a few months pass and then the audio (winamp, itunes, whatever) and video (DVD's) both start skipping at regular intervals, like every second or so. everything else works fine. the skipping happens even with the startup sound audio file, as it's starting up. happened with my old HD, still happens with the new one. seems to get worse with the more programs i have open.

i defrag often, run spybot s&d all the time, and virus scan with symantec.

the only programs i run are MS office, firefox, an adobe audio editing program (rarely), and soulseek and emule file sharing progs.

ideas for troubleshooting this issue?

another thing: in the past i used to be able to solve the problem, at least temporarily, by doing a system restore. but lately the machine tells me "cannot restore to the point selected", no matter what point i select. ideas on what's happening there?

Hi there,

i recently installed a software for user account management and it's working great, except that it logs me off with a "forced" log off my user account every 30 mins..
i was told that it's a feature in it but i still don't know how to turn it off, so i contacted the developers of the software and i am waiting for an answer.

now the question is, is there anyway or a command that overrides a forced log off (especially when it's scheduled to regular intervals like this) that i could use until i get an answer from that software's support team?

i was thinking of something like disabling the log off function entirely from windows, or replacing it with just "locking" the account instead..i am not talking about replacing the "log off button" in start menu..i know how to do that, i was talking about the actual log off function or it's executable.

please refrain from answers like "what do you need a program like that for" or "just uninstall it" because that's not much of a help as you can clearly see..

thanks

This is a series of pings that I just did, and almost without fail, every 8th ping will spike from 500ms-1000ms. This is happening at such a regular interval that it can't be coincidence, but I couldn't find anything similar to this issue. Is this some sort of ISP choking?

HP Pavilion 513c, Celeron 1.8, 256 RAM.

This thing was riddled with spyware (still not 100% clean, but that's another thread....).
The machine would reboot every so often when idle--the owner called it random, so I ran a windebug on the minidump files--there were about 70 a day!
All returned a 9c machine check exception pointing to hardware. I've attached 2 debuglogs-they're all quite similar.

I then arranged the minidumps in detail view, sorted by Date Modified-lo and behold, every 15 minutes, then every 16 minutes, then 15, then 16, and so on.
The errors stopped when I was running anti-malware scans and removal tools, then started again when I left the machine for an hour.

I would expect more random timing from RAM or processor...and more errors when the hardware was under load-

Any clues? I'm howling at the moon with frustration....

Hey guys, is there any plugin for Firefox that can automatically save opened tabs & sessions in regular intervals, say 5 minutes?

BTW, after I update it to 21.0, the following page did not display at restarting the application after it cashed and all previously opened tabs were all gone with "Restore Previous Session" greyed!!!

A:How to automatically save Firefox sessions in regular intervals

There's no need for that kind of an extension (if one even exists) because you can just do this:
Open the Tools menu and select "Options"
Switch to the General tab
Where it says "When Firefox starts", select "Show my windows and tabs from last time"

I'm on a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows 7. I have AVG free 2014 as my active antivirus, but occasionally run Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, CCleaner, and Temporary File Cleaner to keep things running smoothly.
 
I've had this issue for a while now. AVG recently picked up a few trojan viruses on a scan last week, and I thought my issues would have been resolved, but alas, they have not. 
 
Also, before I begin, I want to note that I'm having these issues only on this laptop, even though I have another laptop computer and iPhone that I use the same wifi connection on.
 
So here's my issue. I'll get on my computer and pull up Chrome. I wait for the wifi to connect. Sometimes it connects without a problem, other times I sit and watch the little blue circle as it loads and loads,  then tells me that it was unable to connect. I'll disconnect and reconnect, and usually that works. Whenever I'm using the internet, the wifi randomly disconnects. It can happen as often as every 5-10 minutes.
 
I've scanned with everything I can think of, I've unplugged and restarted the modem countless times....I honestly do not know what to do. I don't know if this is a virus or if there's something wrong with my computer's devices or....I honestly don't know what to do, so please, please help.
 
Thank you in advance,
Cassidy

I've been getting a few BSODs recently.
Mostly when away from the computer, but once whilst browsing.
I have not changed any hardware.
I have moved the computer from one room to another and changed the ethernet cable connected.
I do not believe any damage could of been caused to the hardware when moving but I suppose it is a possibility. It took no noticeable bumps or shunts.

I have recently activated ssh with cygwin, which created a new privileged user. But I do not see how that should affect it.

I have also changed a setting in utorrent "Enable UPnP port mapping" and "Enable NAT-PMP port mapping" have both been activated. Again I don't see how this should cause BSOD but I'm trying to provide as much info as may be relevant.

I've attached the seven forums diag tool directory.

Thanks in advance for any help!

A:New fairly regular BS0D mostly when "idle", once whilst on youtube.

Not that I can weigh in on much here, but I can say that it's very unlikely that your uTorrent settings caused this; I use the same settings with no adverse effects

My laptop is randomly disconnecting from my new router. Sometimes it's every few minutes, sometimes it can be an hour or two in between disconnections. This only seems to effect wireless devices and I notice it most often on my laptop. The router is a Fritz!Box 7490 and is connected to 2degrees Internet. The message in the WLAN event log is :

Wireless LAN device deregistered itself (5 GHz). MAC address: 64:BC:0C:6A:79:62

The weird thing is that if I disconnect from wifi and reconnect it re-establishes the connection near instantly. Sometimes it just shows as connected to wifi but not to the internet.

I have tried factory resetting the router (As suggested by 2degrees Internet) and I've tried setting my laptop DNS settings to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. I have also tried to change the wifi channels in case of interference.

Any suggestions or advice is welcome and I'm happy to provide extra info on request. Thank you for your attention.

So recently my computer has been having some issues with the wifi. Every 1 hour or so, the wifi stops working until I disconnect my connection with my router, and then reconnect it.
 
I have little ideas as to what is causing it. I recently added some VPN's and deleted them from my computer, but currently use one sometimes. I feel like they might have messed something up with my wifi.
 
It is NOT my router because I can surf on the web with my phone and tablet during this stuff goes on.
 
I am trying to think of it might be either my wifi adapter, or some program on my windows 7 computer that is causing this? Any steps I can take to figure this out?
 
Thanks for reading!

Once that was done it restarted but during the install of the update it would only get to 99% and it would restart. It did it quite a few times so I restored to my last settings. I'm worried something is wrong. I also get a "catalyst control centre has stopped working" at start up. Please help?

Okay so my computer seems to be crashing a lot. I leave it on most of the time, since I'm running a media-server down to my PS3 downstairs. Sometimes when I return to my PC, it will be in sleep mode, but I will not be able to get it out of sleep mode, and will have to turn the PC off to get it back on. Other times, it has crashed before reaching sleep mode, and there is simply a black screen with an MS-DOS style cursor, but not text. Again, the computer is unresponsive and needs to be restarted. This used to happen around 5-10% of the times I'd return to my computer, but lately it has increased vastly and now is around 75%.

Nearly every time I use uTorrent, the computer seems to crash in this manner. Similarly, I can often predict it is going to crash when Google Chrome becomes slightly unresponsive. Reading around, similar crashes seem to happen to other people when hard drives go bad, and for some reason I think it is more of a hard drive problem than a software problem.

I'm in Windows 7 64-bit.

Any help that could be given would be appreciated, and just ask if you need to know anything else.

I already have the latest driver, and have updated the bios.

My laptop will not stay connected to wifi for more than a few seconds before 'limited access' appears.
It connects and disconnects repetitively.
i have a 3mobile wireless dongle. Other laptops stay connected no problem and i am always beside the dongle with full coverage.
if i click the network icon several times on the bottom right it reconnects for a few seconds again,
I have discovered that if i run 'funkypool' in the background the connection generally stays, but not 100%, but 90% anyway.
this may possibly be because its java and always refreshing itself i think.
it doesn't matter whether or not im plugged in or using battery but i did change the controls for automatically putting the wireless to sleep mode so i doubt that unless ive done it wrong. my laptop is 5 months old. trouble shooting does not raise any issues. any help greatly appreciated, thanks

I get to upload large files on Google Drive but there's just too many of the files and they are a bit large i.e. 4 Gb. Something - not sure if this is the browser or Google Drive itself keeps returning an error message reading 'Upload paused (offline), and, my WiFi, which is controlled by the operating system and the internet service provider along the way loses its connectivity.

I start worrying whether my neighbors are using the same frequency, and, after trying to restart the connection by signing out and signing in again the same thing happens all over. Usually when this happens I assume network traffic is not going to make my life easy for me to upload files over WiFi.

Does the architecture envisage software and other underlying solutions for these little problems?

A:The WiFi keeps disconnecting...

You can use a WiFi scanner (freeware) to check channel use and perhaps change channels on your router.

E.g. Acrylic Wi-fi, Xirrus Wifi Inspector

Also check your Wifi is not connecting to outside routers (see Wifi Sense in Settings).

So I took the plunge and updated to Windows 10 from 8.1. I did the FULL install, wiped my hard drive completely before installing Windows 10.

Everything is great, I really do like it.

But the WiFi keeps dropping and its extraordinarily aggravating.

I searched all over the internet with no solution in sight.

When this happens, I try to keep re-connecting it and it connects but then after awhile, it will just stop trying and I get the "System Broker has stopped working" as well as the "Network UX Broker has stopped working" error message.

Has anyone found a solution? I tried installing the WiFi drivers again and again but still nothing helping. I really think its a Windows issue that needs to be addressed via an update. I do have the latest updates installed as well.

The machine in question is a Lenovo Z710 IdeaPad with the Intel Wireless AC 7260 NIC.

Okay, so I'm trying to get my son's DS to connect to the internet so that he can trade pokemon. I'm on Win XP, my usb wifi device is this Mayflash thing, and I have heard that other people have had issues with it (the driver download doesn't help). However, I did get mine to connect, someone on another forum linked to this article to report their success connecting their DS with it.

However, when I try to connect the DS to the network it disconnects. It's always about a minute into the connection, everything is going well and says it has excellent signal strength, then crash, all gone. When I look at the network properties and click okay (with no changes), it reconnects.

Does that sound like firewall? I looked in my firewall properties and clicked to be notified if the firewall blocks something, but I'm not receiving notification. I'm new to wifi, this is the only device I have with it so I can't test with anything else.

ETA - Nope, tried disabling firewall completely and it still disconnected. Re-enabling firewall reconnected the wifi without my prompting.

ETA - Again: this time my dork butt actually looked at the error code. 52000. Anyone know what this guy is talking about?

Maybe your Mayflash thing is defective.
