Good morning!

1. Background. I recently purchased a "Toshiba A505-S6017" laptop (Intel Core i5/4GB RAM/500GB HDD) with Windows 7, 64-bit, Premium Home edition installed: (1) I have a fully functioning home network with 4 (other) XP, 32-bit, PC nodes. (2) My router is a "Netgear Rangemax Dual Band Wireless-N Router WNDR3300." (3) My new laptop has an internal "Realtek RTL819 Wireless LAN, 302.11n b/g/n(draft) PCE-E NIC," (4) My laptop tranceiver is "Microsoft 2.4GHz, V1.0" (5) I have two wireless networks on the router, one for the 2.4, the other for the 5Ghz and can switch between the two, as desired.

2. Problem. Windows 7 found the 2.4GHz, no sweat, but does not see the 5GHz. I want 5GHz access since am worried about my 2.4GHz and mutual interference with household cordless phones, microwave, etc. which also use 2.4 -- plus, 5GHz is preferred for the speed/modernization advantages.

3. Actions to-date. I have followed Windows 7 procedures for automatic home-network detection, in many ways. I have researched (all/most?) involved OEMs' documentation, forums, and Internet-wide Google queries. I can find no solution or suggestions for the problem.

I am desperate to find a solution, as I need to set up access to my other computers from my laptop. I am considering upgrading my older PC's to Windows 7, but first need to address this issue. Can you help analyze and solve this?

Thanks so much for any consideration y... Read more

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 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.

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

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.

Hello,               Since you mentioned that you need to chage the frequency band to 5Ghz. It is not possible as the maximum frequency band that this card can run is 2.4Ghz Only with data transfer speed of 300Mbps. However you can change the channel settings in the router and check whether that works.  ******Clicking the Thumbs-Up button is a way to say -Thanks!.********Click Accept as Solution on a Reply that solves your issue to help others** I am an HP Employee#HPExpertsday

Hi there

If you use Chromecast - great device too even if it is made by Google a drawback is that the wifi receiver in the Chromecast device is limited to the 2.4 GHZ band which can get severely congested at times (so slow performance).

This little device is an Ethernet adapter for your Chromecast - so you can plug the thing straight into your router / cablebox via its LAN connection.

Now you can use 5GHZ band on your client devices -- much faster wifi experiemce - for example I'm getting absolutely no video lag accessing Chromecast using 5GHZ band with INTEL Dual band AC7265 wifi adapter built in to my laptop.

If you have 5GHZ band available on your router - especially in urban areas / large cities use it before "The masses" discover it. !!!

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.

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!

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 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.

Hi, 

I have this laptop and it comes with a 2.4ghz wireless adapter. I see in the specs that it can come with a 5ghz ac adapter as well. I would like to upgrade it to the 5ghz adapter.

If someone could tell me which model adapter that is so I know that it is compatible before I buy it.
Thank you!

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!
 

A:Laptop can't connect to 2.4Ghz frequencies, only 5Ghz frequencies

Try the latest wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site.

If that doesn't work then try the latest driver directly from Intel's site.

Hi everyone,

I have two issues. The first issue I came across was my wifi connection was gone all of a sudden. I was getting an error message "Intel(R) Wireless -AC 9560 adapter is experiencing driver-or hardware related problems". I found on a Microsoft forum a potential fix for the issue. The fix involved uninstalling IntelPROSet Wirless Software and redownloading the drivers. So I went on another computer, downloaded the program, put it on a USB drive and transferred the installation to the laptop with the wifi issue.

Here comes my second issue. The .exe setup file will not run. When I double click it, it asks me if I want to run the program. I click okay and it loads for 2 seconds before stopping. Nothing else happens. I've tried turning off my antivirus program and firewall. I have been unsuccessful in resolving these two issues. Would someone please be able to help?

Thank you in advance.

I have been having troble with my Realtek wifi adapter, loosing connectivity every now and then. At times troubleshooting will work by Reseting the adapter and I will have my connection back. At other time post reset the wifi adapter would no longer be available and listed in Device MAnager. Most of the times when I restart my system, it will not find any adapter in Device Manager. I have tried everything, but no success; wiped out my system and did a clean install, updated BIOS, moved back from Win 10 to Win 8.1 (which came in my laptop), tried several drivers and still failure. Can someone help on this...

For some reason my computer will randomly disable my WiFi adapter and won?t re enable it. I?ve already unchecked ?Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power? in the device manager, and restarting my computer solves the issue for roughly a half hour before it disables itself again. Please advise!

I too downloaded and installed the latest Realtek network wifi adaptor and immediately my wifi kept dropping. After extensive research with Comcast Xfinity, it was decided that the software upgrade was causing the problem. I downloaded and installed the previous version of this software and that corrected the problem.Obviously, The latest upgrade is flawed and should NOT be used on HP Notebooks. Realtek denies any problem with this driver despite numerous complaints on Windows and Hp forums with people having the very same problem.Realtek and HP need to get together to correct this problem and do a better job with quality assurance before releasing upgrades that evidently do more harm than help.They run you around in circles with all sorts of "fixes" assuming it could not be the software. Get it right HP before you release the upgrades

I got some 802.1 1N Texet brand adapters (wa3070) and I couldn't get them working properly on x64 Windows 7 PCs. On each boot, the adapter couldn't connect to the router with a lot of faff creating a new connection.

I also installed one on a x64 Linux PC and using the distro's own drivers, was able to work straight away without and problems. Linux identified the adapter chip as MT7601U.

I resolved the problem with the W7 PCs by uninstalling the drives and installing those off a disc that was supplied with a LB-Link brand adapter BL-WN151. The adapters worked straight away with out issue.

Wrong disc packed with the adapter at the factory it seems!

Is your area really congested on the 2.4ghz band? If your area where you use your computer is not congested. There really will be no improvement going with the 5ghz adapter.

Router is Netgear R6200
Laptop isn't capable, but I have a wireless adapter ( EDIMAX Technology - Official Website - N150 - Wireless nLITE 3dBi High Gain USB Adapter ) that should recognize the 5ghz band, I went into all my router settings, everything checks out out.. look at the properties under the adapter, enabled for Adhoc support for 802.11n, great.
Looking at available networks, and the 5ghz band is still nowhere to be found. Not under wifi 2, of course, under the adapter.

That's a single band adapter, it just does not do 5 GHz. Look at the detailed specification.

Hello
 
I would like to replace my current Wifi adapter Ralink RT3290 by an newer Intel 7260.HMWWB.R and I've read that the BIOS whitelist may cause problems.
 
How do I know whether the BIOS of my laptop is using a whitelist?
 
I bought the laptop with a pre-installed Windows 8 but later downgraded to Windows 7. The model is HP Pavilion 15, serial [Personal Information Removed]
 
Your help is highly appreciated.
 
Cheers

A:Wifi adapter replacement (whitelist issue)

Hi: Your model does not have a whitelist but check to make sure the wlan card you have now has two antennas connected to it. The Intel 7260 needs two wireless antennas to work correctly.

Apologies if this has been addressed before but my problem is pretty specific and I couldn't find any threads about it.  For a quick backgound, my OS is Windows 10 (was Windows 8 prior) and my network adapter is an Intel Centrino N-2230.  I have a Lenovo Y500 laptop and my internet has been having issues. For background, it was working fine until sometime early this year. I got an ethernet cable and mainly relied on that. Whenever I would unplug my ethernet cord, most of the time my internet wouldn't work - the open networks availble shown would just be empty even though all my other devices connected to the internet just fine. I ignored this and continued because I mainly only used it with ethernet anyways, and if I really needed to I could disable and reenable my network adapter to get the internet working (for like 30 seconds before it would often die again).  I'm back home from college now however, and I need a consistent internet. The problem I face now is that when my laptop isn't plugged in, I can't seem to use internet at all (I can do the disable and re-enable technique but it works for like 5 seconds before it stops working again). When my laptop is plugged in, it stays connected to the internet consistently, but the quality of the connection is really inconsistent. For games that I play, every 10 minutes I usually have around 3-4 instances where the ping goes from 20 to like 1000 for 10-15 seconds, sometimes even completely disconectin... Read more
