Desktop WIFI Internet Issue - Connected, but Slow/Dropped Internet

Q: Desktop WIFI Internet Issue - Connected, but Slow/Dropped Internet

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."

ipconfig results are posted below. Images of Xirrus (1) and its connection test (3) are attached. Any help is very much appreciated!

Hello,

I am brand new to this site and in DESPERATE NEED OF YOUR HELP!!!

Here's my current issue:

This has been going on for about a month now. My internet speed on my wired ethernet desktop computer have been extremely slow. Webpages would take forever to load. When trying to run a speedtest on speedtest.net, the page would not even load but would run fine on tablets and mobile phone. I even tried disconnecting my desktop and plugging the same ethernet cord into my laptop and it runs perfectly fine (getting around 25 mb down, what I'm suppose to get).

I've ran virus scan and everything checks out clean. I also checked and updated the network adapters. I even saw on another forum something about an AMD Quick Stream but I don't believe I have this on my computer.

I've also delt with ISP, AT&T Uverse, and they already replaced my router twice but still have not solved the problem. I'm getting an upgraded router next week to support 45 mb download and technician will be out here to install new wires and among other things...they claim this should fix the problem as the upgrade will be like a brand new install.

Just an FYI, I'm not that technical so please be very detailed when giving your instructions/suggestions. Please let me know if other information is needed too address the problem. Thanks in advance for your help! This is really my last resort!

My wifi signal has suddenly dropped in the past week. It is definately a fault with my computer because my other computer works fine. It will often fluctuate from 1 bar of signal to 4 and back again.

A:My internet wifi has suddenly dropped! HELP!

First of all, welcome to BC !
 
Secondly, when posting it helps considerably if you give some details about the computer - make, model etc. !
 
However, if it is a desktop, the signal can be dramatically affected by the position of the aerial, or by any extraneous material coming between the aerial and the router. As an example, I use a wi-fi dongle on my desktop which sits at the front top corner of the side panel. If it slips down by as little as half an inch, I lose 25% of the signal.
 
If it is a laptop, again similar considerations apply. The position / angle of the laptop relative to the router, and any furniture which may have been moved around the house.
 
Have you noticed any particular occasions when the signal drops, or any correlation with what you are doing or where you are doing it ?

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!

Hey,
I can't get my head around this: on my desktop were internet has always been working fine has started to be really really slow (I can't navegate). I have tried repairing the network, deleting temp's, restarting the router, changing my MAC... nothing seems to do the trick. I suspect something is blocking my system. I have xp SP3 on my desktop and internet runs flawlessly on linux on my portable. I'm really close on changing OS forever (it's a pity I'm a gamer).

Here is my HJT log:

My desktop's (winxp home sp3) internet connection, connected via cable to our router, is very slow at the moment, to the extent where it downloads only kbs per minute. I've tried:
different browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera... even IE)
disabling/removing/reinstalling firewall (PC tools plus), antivirus (avast) and program startup blocker (gogo data toolbar)
checking for spy/malware (Spybot S&D)
renewing ip address
system restore to earlier point
uninstall network adapter drivers/reboot install
different cable to router
with no success.

However my gf's laptop pc connecting via wifi to the same router has connectivity as usual.

Here are all the details I can think to provide - any suggestions to fix the problem, up to and including full XP reinstall, are welcome.

Please give detailed instruction - I'm familiar enough with XP and PCs in general, but lack detailed knowledge in this area.

A:XP: very slow internet for desktop via wire, as normal on laptop via wifi - help?

I don't see how the gf laptop is fine on WiFi when you have latency from the router unless she's on a totally different WiFi network, check the name of the router she's on, also do a speed test without the router and see if you still get kb instead of mbps,

This can be a number of things, how old is your router, if you have other WiFi devices hook them up to your router test the speed, hardware the gf laptop to the router see if its still fine. If it turns out to be your pc you may have a bad nic or need to reset something in the operating system.

Hello:I've been having an issue with my Dell XPS Desktop (Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V Ethernet card).
When I connect this server to my router by an ethernet cable, all other other computers connected (Hardwired or Wifi connected) disconnect themselves from the internet. I get the same response when I connect to the Wireless Wifi as well.
It happens only with this Desktop running Windows 10.
I was told to change the DNS address to the OPENDNS Addresses - I tried and I had no luck. I do not have the Ethernet card or the Desktop in powersave mode. They do not go to sleep when idle.
Can someone please make any suggestions. Any input from your end would be very much appreciated.

My parents have a fairly new computer from Dell running (specs below), unfortunately, Visat Home Premium. They have a cable broadband connection that worked well with 98. I set up their new computer for them, got the connection up and running back in Sept. no problems. Starting first of Dec., the connection problems have arose. The main proble is that when ever IE 7 is started, the page takes for ever to load, if it will load even at all. Some sites works just fine and load immediately (i.e tsp.com) while others take forever if even load at all (microsoft.com, dogpile.com). I have reset the modem several times, restarted Vista several times, and still continue to have the same problem. have contacted the ISP several times and each time they say that there is now problems on their end, have me go through and reset modem each time. My parents are now ready to contact Dell and ask for a free downgrade to XP if I can't get this fixed. Now having new problem. When page loads and I attempt to scroll down to read the rest of the page, the page "smears" and I cannot read anything. Don't know if that will be related to anything or not, but I thought I would throw that in. Any help would be great!

Hey there. This is my first post on this forum, I hope that I can get some help here . Anyways, here is the issue that my roommates and I are experiencing with our internet.

Recently, starting just a few weeks ago, our internet began acting a bit strange for all of us. We are able to constantly stay connected 24/7. In our network preferences, it says we are always connected to the internet with full bars. For the most part, we all have perfect and fast internet connection, but for some unknown reason, every 45 minutes or so (sometimes shorter, sometimes longer), we won't be able to load anything on the internet from a range of about 5-10 minutes.

The strange thing is that even during these periods of time where we are unable to load anything, as if we had no wifi connection, all of our devices that we use the internet on said that we all still had a perfect connection. Even if we are sitting right next to the router with our laptops, this issue will still constantly reoccur as i described earlier.

What's even weirder is that sometimes things like video games on the pc that run in different clients (not the internet browser), will be able to maintain internet connection when playing online when the internet stops working for everything else. That is definitely what confuses me the most. How could a video game maintain internet connection for online play on the same wifi, yet none of our other devices are able to load anything? We won't even be able to use w... Read more

Hello everyone, so the other day my PC unexpectedly shut down and been giving connectivity issues since.
Currently, I can connect to my WIFI router, gain an IP address. however I am getting no internet access.
I
have a virtual machine running on the PC, with windows XP, and this machine does have full internet access.

Problems and resolutions so far:


Windows firewall and security manager were corrupted and various services did not start however all are up now.
I reset the TCPIP stack via command prompt.
I reinstalled Wifi drivers.
I ran the sfc and chkdisk  commands. Check disk resolved some issues.
I did a traceroute and i hit my router, after there is a request timeout then it goes to a few addresses before stopping.

Im lost now as everything seems to be up, just I am unable to browse. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

A:Wifi says connected,but no internet

after a reset the default for the router would be 192.168.1.1
BUT
you are showing a default gateway connection on your ethernet of 192.168.1.254

Also the wireless adapter is a Atheros AR5007 and under vista , any change in routers or router settings can cause issues

can you explain what you are connected to using the ethernet cable ?

and you should update the wireless driver from the manufacturers website - if that does not work - then from Atheros site

whats the make and model of the PC ?

AR5007
Vista 32 / 64 Bit
Direct link Drivers for Atheros AR5007 and Windows Vista 32 / 64 bit
You only need to click on the green download button labelled " Click to Download " and wait, the file will download - you do not need to click on any other buttons to get the download started

To install the driver you will need to do the following

Extract the downloaded zip file into a folder on the PC
then

> Start Globe
> Control Panel
> System and maintenance
> Scroll down to Device manager
> network adaptors, click on the + >
> Right click on the AR5007 Adapter

Hello everyone, so the other day my PC unexpectedly shut down and been giving connectivity issues since.
Currently, I can connect to my WIFI router, gain an IP address. however I am getting no internet access.
I have a virtual machine running on the PC, with windows XP, and this machine does have full internet access.

Problems and resolutions so far:


Windows firewall and security manager were corrupted and various services did not start however all are up now.I reset the TCPIP stack via command prompt.I reinstalled Wifi drivers.I ran the sfc and chkdisk  commands. Check disk resolved some issues.I did a traceroute and i hit my router, after there is a request timeout then it goes to a few addresses before stopping.

Im lost now as everything seems to be up, just I am unable to browse. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Rango.

Ok, i dont know if this was the problem to stat this off or not but i downloaded a torrent and i had to follow the instruction to get it to work. I did everything and it came to a point where it said if i countie to luanhc this program it will alter components or something but i went through with it. It wasnt an actual program it was more of a cmd installer. In the end it didnt work becasue of some error that i went wrong in.
so I just started up my computer and it said no internet but my wifi was connected. I reset network and everything but it is still the same. It says IPv4 and IPv6 are not connected and something about media that is connected in properties. Im running windows 10 and the router is not the problem because my other laptop is connected to the internet. ALso, i uninstalled my anti virus so thats not it either. IM DESPERATE for a solution please help me and i will be grateful for the the support given to me.

I am using a Toshiba laptop and it has windows 8.1. I have connected it to the home wifi which other devices are connected just fine to. When I open a browser the page states "This Page Cannot Be Displayed" and then when I diagnose the problem it says a problem cannot be identified. So then I will type in Google- it will populate and I can search for the site I want. But as soon as I click on the site the page states: This page cannot be displayed again.

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 am far from computer savvy, but I know basic things. Here is my issue...
My HP pavillion dv6000 (yes it's old, I know) wont allow me to use the Internet. It says I am connected to my home wifi with 5 bars signal strength. My iPad and Droid both connect to my wifi and I can use the Internet fine. I actually have 2 Hp pavillion dv6000 laptops, and neither will connect to the Internet! Up until today everything worked fine and all of a sudden I can't open the intent on either one! I called Hp and they were no help. I have read other posts about people having similar problems, and tried the solutions suggested but nothing has worked! I need my laptop only because my wonderful iPad can't do everything I wish it could.

My wifi is connected, but when I open any browser (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer) It loads and then says I have no internet connection. I've tried troubleshooting, but it tells me everything is fine. The Wifi on our other laptop works fine or for my phone; basically any other device works perfectly fine, except my laptop. I've tried using CMD, going back on my Restore Point and nothing has worked, and if it does it's only for 3-5 minutes, and it gives me the same error that I have no internet connection. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I need my laptop for work.

I am currently using a Vostro A860 that will connect to wireless but wont load pages and I have been unable to narrow down the problem. I am currently connected to wifi on my smartphone and using an app to tether it to the PC. Other laptops are connected to this network and it is working fine. Right now it seems like the wireless network connection is not receiving any packets of information. I have messed around with the firewall, but disabling it still does not change anything. This PC did not have any wireless drivers so I had to download them from the DELL website. As such they should be correct. I have restarted the computer since the drivers were installed, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007
Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

Hello, sorry for the long message but I wanted to give as much detail as possible.Short version: Lenovo laptop with Windows 8.1 says wifi is connected and that there should be an internet connection but every +/- 15 min the internet stops working till I use troubleshooter or turn it off/on again manually. After that or even long before trouble shooter comes to a conclusion, the internet works again. Problem happens at my student house wifi and parents house wifi, both from the same company. My mobile phone can use the same wifi without a problem at all times. My network adapter is: Intel Wireless-N 2230.Tried all the solutions I could find but to no avail. It still happaned in safe mode (update: found out later there was an issue with my provider around the same time so it might still work properly in safe mode). Last thing I tried was uninstalled Lenovo Energy Management yesterday night and afterwards my internet worked for the entire evening till today, around 9 PM. Now my connection drops again about every 15 min. 
Update: around 10 PM the internet started working again. I did nothing during this time period except continue to use Chrome when it worked and run windows troubleshooter which only said the usual "it's the router" thing. It didn't show it diagnosed or fixed anything. I didn't restart my laptop or opened/closed any other programs either so I don't know what caused the sudden disconnections or fixed them. There was no official reported issue from my pro... Read more

Then it started loosing connection in my home too, it shows that the WiFi is connected and when I hover over the WiFi icon it says "internet access" but whenever I tried to access a webpage it won't connect... I blamed the network adapter and tried reinstalling and reinstalling the drivers and changing settings but none of it worked.

If you really do have internet access you should be able to ping a DNS server located somewhere outside your network. open a command prompt, Start > run > enter "cmd" and hit enter. type in "ping 8.8.8.8" if you get a response in replies you know that its technically working and connected to the internet.

Now when i boot up the computer the WI-FI connects (with a full, four bar connection) however, when i try and open IE or the store, I get a connection issue saying there is no internet access.

I am using the same Wi-fi network to post this on this forum, so it seems the issue must be on the Vaio side, what do you guys suggest?
