Wireless connection briefly drops, then will not grant default gateway or DNS server

Q: Wireless connection briefly drops, then will not grant default gateway or DNS server

Hello, I am having a somewhat bizarre, extremely frustrating issue. I can connect to the internet via wireless just fine, and everything will be hunky-dory for a while. After a while, however (this varies anywhere from a day to a week), there will be a small hiccup on the connection, and then something fails in the Acquiring Network Address stage. My computers will get an IP, but they will not get the default gateway or DNS server.

I say computers because this happens on both my PC and laptop. This issue does NOT, however, occur for anyone else in the household.

I have tried a plethora of fixes, from simple computer reboots to fiddling with all sorts of settings, and nothing works to reestablish the connection. My father has also tried fixing it, to no avail. I have to go and reset my router, which also interrupts TV service, because it is through AT&T U-Verse. Needless to say, this does not make other people in the household very happy, and I really shouldn't have to be resetting my router every couple of days like that.

My PC uses a Netgear WG111v3 adapter and is Windows XP. My laptop has on-board Wifi and is Windows XP Professional. I am not sure why I am the only person in the household that experiences this issue. Could certain programs like AIM be causing problems?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Preferred Solution: Wireless connection briefly drops, then will not grant default gateway or DNS server

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.)

Hi I have a win 7 netbook that I recently got and for some reason it suddenly cannot keep a connection to the internet. It used to keep a connection before but now I keep getting the error the default gateway is not available about every ten minutes while connected which of course is very frustrating.

I've tried updating all associated drivers but apparently that hasn't changed anything. I've tried restarting the computer and tried different connections. I know its nothing to do with the internet connection I'm trying to connect to as other devices are able to keep a connection with no issue. Any suggestions for things I can try or any questions?

A:Cannot hold a wireless internet connection (default gateway not available)

and welcome to the Forum

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

Hey,

Before continuing, this is a thread that I currently have going, if you want extra details on what's been going on. I'll try to explain it quickly here:

My laptop won't connect to wireless Internet. Doesn't matter where I am, so it's not a router problem.
I've tried many things (can be seen on the other thread), and still can't get wireless Internet connection.

Before I go any further, I'm not great with computers, so any instructions, please, eaassyyy!

Now the weird thing is, when I'm in Safe Mode with networking, Internet seems to be working fine!
As you can see in the title, my Ping test is showing something is wrong.

I have no idea what to do here. I've been going through forums, tried the following:

- Changing wireless channel
- TCP/IP stack repair options
- Calling Dell (what a joke that was...)
- ran an ipconfig /all (see on the other thread through my forum link)
- removed Mcafee (using Windows Essentials), and when I did that, Internet worked for 5-10mins then crashed again.
- checked the Mac filtering settings on my router settings

Also, my computer crashed the other day (got a blue screen, shut itself down). I posted the details in the thread.

Finally, my great friend the moderator Etaf asked me to post this to see if I have a problem that this forum could help me with ... I read the 1st post, here is the mentioned information (I couldn't do #3 because I run on 64-bit):

Hello,

At first, thanks for the input to help me. Friday i was updating/installing test server from World of Tanks. During the download of the test server (file of 7.5GB) i got twice a BSOD telling me the driver of the network caused the problem.

Of course, i was a bit surprised, though did have 2 BSOd's in past. One in april and one in may.

Later on, friday evening, i did have a great connection between the modem and my laptop. After about 1,5 hour the problem appeared again. Saturday/Sunday seemed like the problem was only appearing for 2 minutes an hour with in meantime some 2-3 sec lagg a couple times.

Can anyone explain why the first packet is to the default gateway and not the DNS server?

I have a client machine set up
IP 192.168.1.2
default gateway 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS server 192.168.1.53

What confuses me, is when I clear the NetBIOS and DNS cache, and then try to ping another computer on my network by name,
eg 'ping computer2'

The first packet sent is a DNS packet, requesting the IP of computer2.mydomain.com
But it is sent to the default gateway

The next packet is the same but sent to the IP I have said is the DNS server, this the packet I expected to see first.

Can anyone explain why the first packet is to the default gateway and not the DNS server?

Hope that is the only required information. If you think you can answer, with more information, just ask.

I was having problems with re-installing Windows XP and SP1-3 updates, and connecting to internet.and getting DNS errs.
Went into ipconfig, and had no default gateway

So, I eventually found my way to windows error reports,doing a search:
for "setuperr"

Turns out the "computer name" had errors in it with non-allowed characters.
Went into Control Panel, clicked on System, did the fix.
No underlines, etc. allowed

Sometimes I have internet connection for a few seconds, if I'm lucky maybe three minutes. I can get two different messages when I run the Windows Troubleshooting option: "DNS server isn't responding" or "The default gateway is not available." This has been going on about a week. I have not made any changes to my laptop, not even a Windows update, or a driver update, or anything like that.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655 laptop. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I live in a rural area that does not have home telephone or internet lines, so I access the internet using a 3G data card. There is only one small spot in my house that receives a signal so I have a Zoom Travel Router that I plug the data card into and then use my computer in a different room in the house. This setup has been working great for almost two years.

Below is the coding in the ipconfig file. It's pretty short. The default gateway is the ip address for the Zoom Router as provided in the User Manual. I talked to my ISP provider and they said they could only help me if I plugged the data card directly into the computer. They could not or would not help me if I used a Wifi router.

If you tell me I need to make changes to the ipconfig file, then you will have to tell me how to do that. I'm not afraid to make changes, I'm just not techie enough that I know how to do it.

Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. I hate being without the internet.

Hello.

On my W2K server I have two NIC's, one for the external connection to the internet, and one for the internal connection to my workstation. I was messing around (computers and beer, bad...) so I'm not sure what I've done, but here are the details.

On the internal NIC I've specified an ip of 198.162.255.1, a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and a default gateway of 198.162.255.1 (I'm assuming the default gateway, because the server is cabled directly to the workstation, is the IP of the server.). Using a default gateway that matches the IP of the server was working, but now when I ipconfig the default gateway is blank. Furthermore, when I ipconfig on the workstation, it picks up an IP from DHCP, but again the gateway is blank. The workstation and server cannot communicate other than the workstation grabbing the IP address.

Can anyone make any suggestions that might lead to a resolution? I'm fresh out of ideas.

Thanks in advance.
Kevin

Hi,

Hoping someone can help.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows XP with a wireless connection to a broadband router.

Several weeks ago my laptop started dropping the internet connection randomly (I'm alos unabel to access email when this happens).

My wireless network icon in my toolbar shows the connection as 'Excellent' but for some reason both Internet and Email is not available. The only way to fix the problem has been to restart my laptop which is very frustrating.

I've noticed that this also happens randomly when I'm at home (using different wireless broadband modem) so I think the issue is my laptop not the 2 x routers/modems.

I'm running NOD32 for security as well (but have been for 4 years now with no problems till now).

Please help.

My desktop computer was not connecting to the internet even though there was a connection. I ran a diagnostic test and it said that my default IP gateway, DCHP server and DNS server all failed. I don't know how to fix this problem so I did several things. I did an ipconfig release/renew in the cmd promt, I manually typed in my ip address, subnet mask and default gateway and i erased and added the same wireless connection and still nothing happened. Then I logged into my router on another computer and changed the data encryption from WPA to WEP so I can get on the internet with my laptop since my laptop did not support WPA encryption and walla I was able to connect to the internet on my desktop. I am not sure how changing the encryption from WPA to WEP has anything to do with a failure from my DNS and DCHP server and default IP gaeway. Can someone explain so I can understand this?

I'm running Windows 7- 64bit, comcast internet, netgear router. Ethernet connection.
So recently my pc started getting super slow, and my a/v was showing all these threats were being blocked. I went in to defense mode and downloaded many a antivirus/malware removal program trying to rid my pc of the plague. Along the way I installed a windows driver update for my display and since then my Internet has stopped working. I've tried the usual router/modem reset, disable/uninstall network adapter all to no avail. I also tried my pdanet tether from my phone and even though it says it connects the little exclamation point still mocks me on the connection status. I plugged my laptop into the same ethernet cable and it works fine so I'm crossing that off the list. No device conflicts.
I've tried system restore but no luck. No luck in safe mode with networking. I'm guessing it has to do with the default gateway being blank but I'm really at a loss.

If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it, I'm just about ready to format but I'd really rather not. Thanks for any help!

Also to clarify, I don't have all those programs on my pc anymore. I deleted all the antivirus/malware programs to make sure they weren't causing problems.

- RockMongo: if I connect using RockMongo, after 60 seconds connection is lost
- Jmeter: about every minute I have "Non HTTP response code: java.net.SocketException,Non HTTP response message: Socket closed"

I have not this problem when connecting to other servers BUT my friends, connecting from the same office using their Linux OS, don't have this problem.

I have the same problem with wired (Atheros AR81xx) and wireless (Atheros AR956x) connection. Wired and Wi-Fi drivers are up-to-date.

No antivirus or firewall installed. I tried turning windows firewall on and off, nothing change. I also tried to set MTU to the best value for my connection (1472) but this didn't change the game. I can't say if the problem existed in the past, I noticed it only few days ago when I started to work with that server.

I also tried to dump tcp packets using netsh, I got some errors (Winsock - event id 1032 ad 1003) and I got these errors also closing all opened programs.

Have you talked to Amazon S3 group, or looked in the discussion forum at https://forums.aws.amazon.com/forum.jspa?forumID=24 to see if others may also be having the same problem, or had it and found a solution.

Instead of using PuTTY, try WinSCP. It incorporates Putty, a SSH & FTP Client all in one. You can download it from WinSCP :: Free SFTP and FTP client for Windows The only thing that I can think of, is that the S3 server is dropping your connection on their end. WinSCP also allows for logging, so that you are able to better troubleshoot what is going on. More on the logging feature. Logging :: WinSCP

Hey,

So I'm somewhat of an idiot when it comes to computers, and I'm having quite a hard time here.

I currently have 3 laptops running on a D-Link DIR-615 wireless router.

2 of them are running fine, but the 3rd one can't connect to the Internet. Well, sometimes it will for a few seconds, but most of the time, it will time out, and Internet's always dropped.

When I ran a Intel PROset/Wireless Manual Diagnostic, all the test pass except for the Ping Test. Sometimes, it will say "Response: Default Gateway, No Response: DHCP server", although most of the times, both have no response.

Here's the interesting thing: I have the laptop for about 6 weeks now. At the beginning, it worked perfectly well. After 4 weeks, Internet kept crashing. Did a system restore, and Internet worked for a few days ...then, out of the blue, started crashing again, and now I can't connect ever (even though I always show a strong signal reception on my icon).

I have no idea what to do here. I've been going through forums, tried the following:

- Changing wireless channel
- TCP/IP stack repair options
- Calling Dell (what a joke that was...)

I just don't understand why one laptop doesn't connect (even though it did 3 weeks ago without problem) and the 2 other ones work great ...my roomates are getting tired of me borrowing their laptops, so I need to figure this out!
PLEASE HELP !!!

and welcome to the Forum

Is yours farther from the router than the others? Have you installed the newest driver for the wireless adaptor?

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I have done a Google search on this. Problem is, nothing I have tried so far has worked permanently. I am not even sure if the problem is my computer or my network. So here it is:

I have an Acer Aspire laptop with Windows 8.1. My main modem is located downstairs in my house, with a laptop connected to it (it works fine, never any issues). Before, I had a router wired upstairs to connect my laptop to. Here's the problem - it doesn't matter if I am using a wireless or a wired connection, I get a limited connection. I will have Windows troubleshoot the problem, and it always says that the problem was that the Default Gateway is not Available, and it will say that it is fixed. However, this randomly happens over and over anywhere from 2 minutes to 20 minutes after I just "fixed" it. I have just recently tried running a wire across my house to plug directly into the modem. This worked for a while, but the same thing started happening. Keep in mind, there is also a laptop wired directly to the modem downstairs in my house. I believe (but I haven't checked this in a while) that if I connect to the WiFi from my modem downstairs, it works fine. Another twist - I'm pretty sure I had this same issue occur on the old laptop that I had. So I am just flat-out confused.

I have heard that this is a Windows 8.1 issue, and I have heard that this could be an ISP issue (I have Comcast, if it matters). I just have no idea what the problem is or how to fix it. I have been trying so man... Read more

Hello everyone, I'm hoping that you can help me. I've lurked this forum for a long time.
This is a wired connection to the router/modem and I have also tried it on a different router.
I'll give a short version, then the lengthy background and what I have tried.

Short version: Any download of any size seems to trigger the connection to be dropped until I launch the trouble shooter which then resets the local area connection and gives the message in the subject plus "Fixed".

I noticed this happening with videos (any - CNN, Vimeo, YouTube, MSNBC, whatever), and then decided to test it by launching a game (Guild wars 2) because I KNEW it needed a patch. Sure enough, as soon as the download started - connection lost. Downloaded an extensive PDF - connection lost.

If I maintain just a browsing connection for text, I don't SEEM to have a problem. I just know what absolutely triggers it.

Background - This is a custom built rig that has always been rock solid. It has been upgraded through the years. Two weeks ago, I started getting BSODs which happened at different times: 5 minutes on, an hour, a day... and the reasons were varied: PFN_List Corrupt, memory management, others. SFC Check and Disk Check both found all sorts of errors. In the meantime, I tested with memtest86+ and discovered my RAM was bad.

Have you also updated the latest network adapter's driver? I don't know if I have missed this out in your post.

Have you changed the network cable? What category are you using? Cat5, Cat5e or Cat6? It is labeled on the cable itself.

Also, what type of network card or adapter are you using? make and model? Is this integrated or it's a PCI or PCIe card?

I have a small network with a multi-homed server. The 1st NIC on the server has an IP address of 192.168.2.1 and the default gateway was set to 192.168.2.7. The Second NIC card has an IP of 10.0.2.7 and no default gateway given. The client PC's are configured for DHCP, and when they log in, are successfully given an IP address and the default gateway I assigned on the first card.
However, here is where my problem lies:
The server can ping both cards
The clients can only ping the 1st card.
Neither the Server or clients can ping the default gateway.

I have RIP installed, and IP Forwarding marked, so I can't understand why the default gateway is not working.

Anyone know anything on this?
 

A:{Solved} - Unable to Ping Default Gateway on Multi-homed Server

Greetings

Ok... since you have not given all the information, let me make a guess at what it is:

192.168.2.7 = IP address of a router to the rest of the world
10.0.2.x = Internal network

Ok... here is the problem:

You have given the client's the IP address of the router as their router... however, it is NOT on their network.

This is what you need to do:

Change the default gateway settings on the client's machines to the IP address 10.0.2.7 (and add the 198.168.2.1 address as the default gateway on the server).

So... this is how the routing works. I am on a client machine, and I want to talk to the world. I send my packet to my Default gateway (the server). The server then routes it from itself (on the 10.x.x.x network) to that network card's default gateway (the NIC on the 192.168.x.x network). It then goes from that NIC to that NIC's default gateway, 192.168.2.7, and out to the world.

I hope this helps

1) I get an address via DHCP
2) I can ping the router

but:

1) Cannot access the web interface of the router or any other site, cannot ping google etc
2) No default gateway is given to my card.
What I have tried so far:

1) Its not a router issue as this seems to occur on other wireless networks. And the machine I am using at the moment is wirelessly connected to the router.
2) I have tried to manually enter an address (gave a exception to the router for the IP) and also gave it the DNS and gateway address - no luck.
3) Turned of all firewall and AV.
4) Everything is up to date.
5) This wireless card was working fine on thursday on a different network, a belkin - belkin network, but one of the networks i have tried since then is a Belkin based network.
Im lost on this one! Must be missing something but im not sure what.

Hi all

I am connected to a windows domain LAN and a 3G network adapter at the same time.

Now by default, the Computer connects to the internet via the LAN. Now at times the internet via the LAN is VERY slow, so I would like to override it with the 3G connection, so that all internet traffic goes via my 3G network, which is an entirely different network

The key is here that I do not want to disconnect form the LAN.

Thank you!

A:Change the default gateway to the internet to 3G connection

Hi DextrousDave!

Before I can advise a possible solution to your problem I need a couple bits of information first!

When you say you are connected to a Domain is that through a Windows Active Directory domain or are you connected to a workgroup? This is important to know as it can affect what DNS servers will need to be set up in order to complete this.

Secondly is the 3G connection able to connect to the network on its own through an ethernet cable with its own IP address or is it an adapter which must be connected to a machine via USB or another interface?

Many thanks for your co-operation,
Josh!

Thanks

then it's a problem with your Router/ISP. Call them and tell them that your connection is flaky. It might be caused by an exposed wire or outdated router.

Hi,
Firstly i have searched this forum plus other sites on the internet and cannot find a solution that works for me.
I am using an ethernet connection to my router (Netgear WNR2000 supplied by virgin media). I am running windows 7 professional (i have just reinstalled and this is when the problems started, before everything was fine).
I have an ASUS Formula Crosshair II motherboard and im using the onboard ethernet port, which is nvidia/nforce.

Every so often, seems to be random timing, my LAN connection will drop and when using the troubleshooter it says no default gateway was found and it fixes it. Then i can be ok again for a little while. As mentioned above this only started when i reinstalled windows 7. My old installed worked fine.
I have tried reinstalling/updating the drivers, i have also tried letting windows choose the drivers, both have the same result.

In the event logger when i get disconnects i get an error similar to this:

A:No Default Gateway - Ethernet connection keeps dropping

My first reply did not post properly, so this is the shorter version because I am lazy and I do not want to retype

i had the same thing happen to me a month ago after changing routers.

Hard Reboot (press and hold reset buttons for 90 seconds , differs per device, then unplug everything and rework your ethernet jacks too after your reset your devices)
*Modem (remove battery if there is one,press and hold reset buttons for 90 seconds , differs per device )
*Router (press and hold reset buttons for 90 seconds , differs per device)
also try this if you dont want to call your ISP for a new IP
*then unplug everything and rework your ethernet jacks too after your reset your devices

Another method would be winsock reset and the following below
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

if that doesn't work, call your ISP and they will fix the problem

Sorry for the quick reply with lack of depth. gotta go to work.

Here's the story.. My roommate's computer, both of our phones, my 3DS, etc., can all connect to the Linksys Router, but my laptop has issues galore. It will connect, but I'll randomly lose connection. Sometimes it'll reconnect right away, but a lot of the times it will connect with limited availability. Its almost as though it gets stuck on "Identifying..". When I run diagnosis it mentions default gateway issues a lot, and occasionally IP Configuration.

Sometimes all the NETSH reset stuff (winsock, ipv4, etc.) will get it back up and running, but not always.

Here's the weird part: This router (our apartment) is literally the ONLY connection I've had problems with. If I go anywhere else I can easily connect.

So I have had this problem for several days and it is starting to frustrate me. I lose connection to internet randomly. It can be as frequent as every few minutes, or it can happen once in a day. I fix it by clicking "troubleshoot problems". It resets something, and fixes it for some time with a message: The default gateway is not available.
Any suggestions? Here is a screenshot of my ipconfig/all. Btw I don't use a router.

A:Randomly losing connection/ default gateway not available

Since according to your image file attachment it appears that your PC is using a publicly addressable IP Address, we can only assume that you are plugged directly into the device that was provided by your ISP. If that is not the case please advise in future posts. Otherwise perhaps this issue would better be addressed with you provider. Perhaps a call to them might help in determining if they have any known issues with Windows 7 OS, or the presence of an IPv6 device on their network, or issues with Gigabit Network Cards and their provided device, etc. The DHCP lease times are relatively short (2 hours) this may be exacerbating the problem by I wouldn't think so provided everything else is working optimally. Additionally I would seriously consider disabling NetBIOS over TCP/IP on such a network just as a precaution.

Hi everyone-
I am having a very annoying problem while on my laptop with my internet connection. I will be connected online via wifi and the internet stops working. I trouble shoot the problem via windows and it says the default gateway is not available and it fixes the problem and voila internet working again. Every once in a while it also will talk about the connection point not working and it resets during trouble shooting and its fixed again. Its getting to be very annoying because when I first purchased the laptop (less than a year ago) it wasn't a problem, but now it happens every 10 minutes or less (ever since I moved)! I have tried re-installing the drivers, making sure my computer had been updated and turning off my Mcafee firewall- none of the options made it work correctly. My computer's internet doesn't work, but the other laptops that use wifi work just fine still, so I know its just my computer. I know there has been a few posts about this problem, but I still haven't been able to find a solution for my computers problem yet. I was hoping for more technologically advance help than I can figure out since I've reached my last idea option. Any help or ideas would be helpful and greatly appreciated- thanks in advance!!

My internet connection keeps dropping, when I run the diagnostics it comes back showing the problem as the "default gateway is not available" and showing it being fixed, but then it will happen again a few minutes later. I have been Googling the issues in hopes of finding a solution but nothing I have tried from what I've found has worked. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L645 and I'm using a wireless connection to a Motorola SBG6580, this is the first time I've had this particular issue since purchasing the computer almost 2 years ago.

A:Internet Connection Dropping- Default Gateway not Available

Sounds like a router/modem issue to me.
Have you power cycled it lately?
Do you have a modem plugged into that motorola or is it a combo unit?

A:I have no connection-specific dns suffix or default gateway

Start by deciding how you would like to connect the computer to a network--by dial up or ethernet or wireless or by USB to a USB broadband modem.

Then you have to find a public hotspot or contract for service from an Internet Service Provider.

Hi all

I am connected to a windows domain LAN and a 3G network adapter at the same time.

Now by default, the Computer connects to the internet via the LAN. Now at times the internet via the LAN is VERY slow, so I would like to override it with the 3G connection, so that all internet traffic goes via my 3G network, which is an entirely different network

The key is here that I do not want to disconnect form the LAN.

Thank you!
 

A:Change Internet Connection Default Gateway

For the LAN use a static IP and leave the Default Gateway and DNS server addresses blank.

I recently bought a new router which is supposed to be far better then my previous one I had, which was Netgear. I purchased the Linksys WRT160N Ultra RangePlus Wireless-N Broadband Router. Currently, dispite the modem and router box not going out or changing at all, my connection drops, and will throughtout the day at random times. Sometimes the connection on my laptop still says "local and internet" and sometimes it says "local only" either way I have between 3-5 bars. Dispite the distance between my laptop and the router I have always over the past 6 years have had good reliable connection, but this new router is giving me problems and im unsure why. Either way my internet never complelty goes out, but I lose connection from my laptop and/or PS3 or any other device trying to connection from it. Normally I must go downstairs and reboot both the router and modem to fix it. I restore it by unplugging the power on both, then letting the modem reboot fully, followed by the router in that order. Then everything is fine until the next unexpected wireless dropping. I just recently bought a brand new HP laptop, Pavilion dv7 running 64 bit Windows home premium. I hope iv given enough information to get a fix for this. Thanks.
 

A:Wireless connection drops often

Did you remove all evidence of the old one, before you installed the new one...

Contact LinkSys and ask for a replacement... they will not quarrel with you unless you bought it at Wal-Mart and the 30 days of Wal-Mart is not yet up.

Hello,
I have two computers and a wiresless network that both computers were working well with for nine months. The desktop uses XP the lap top Vista.
Two days ago the XP dropped the wiresless connection. Upon investigation the message in the Wireless Network Connection window stated, " No wireless networks were found in range." Clicking on Refresh Network List gives the same message. Troubleshooting sends you to the systems adminsistrator, which is me and I don't know how to correct the problem.
I was able to boot up my Vista lap top beside the XP desktop and had no problem connecting to the wireless. I use a d-Link router and I am not able to find the XP desktop on the network.

Help would be appreciated. Ivon
 

A:XP drops wireless connection

What wireless adapter do you have in the desktop?

Does it appear as "OK" in Device Manager? Are there any warnings or errors or unknown devices in Device Manager?

Does the wireless connection show in Network Connections? Is it enabled?

Everytime I setup an FTP server, the people who connect get kicked and my wireless connection drops soon after and I'm not sure why. I have the same problem with connection drops when I am downloading large files, my connection will disconnect and then after a split second it will connect again, anyone have any ideas why?
 

A:FTP and wireless connection drops

Set it so it uses default Passive mode.
You may also have to increase the number of allowed FTP-users

Hello everyone. I got MSI GP62-2QE laptop and have been using Windows 10 since I bought it without having a problem. But few days ago when I was playing an offline game my wi-fi connection dropped. I tried to connect back, and I actually succeed but it's keep dropping since then. When I lose the connection, it says that "not connected - no connection available", but actually there're tens of wireless networks and I can connect with my phone. I tried to connect to another wi-fi and it seems to does without getting any error or dropping, but it's the same network but just the different modem. And everyone can connect to this modem, and I was too untill few days ago. Then I always have to use Network troubleshooter but then I cannot find any wireless connection even my Wi-Fi is turned on. Sometimes I can but except my wi-fi, which is pretty odd. Even I can connect, it's super duper slow and unstable, even it's actually not. I've been downloading at 3mb/s but now not even 100kb/s and wi-fi signal is too low which it suppose to not. I configured Power and Sleep settings. Also "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is unchecked. I've scanned my computer. I tried "sfc /scannow" and "dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth". I reset the modem. I'm able to get in the modem administration panel, I tried few things but it's the same. My drivers are up to date. I tried rollback and restoring the system. But just nothing. I ... Read more

Hi,

My Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop accesses the internet via a Linksys WRT160Nv2 router. My wireless connection drops out all the time (the hard wired computer never loses its connection ). I believe it happens when a neighbor or neighbor try to access their wireless connection.

I want to configure my laptop and router so that I don't have drop outs.

Here are my basis wireless settings on the router:

Wireless Configuration: Manual
Network Mode: Mixed
Network Name (SSID): xxxxxx
Radio Band: Standard - 20 MHZ Channel
Wide Channel: 3 (but its is darked out)
Standard Channel: 11 - 2.262GHZ
SSID Broadcast: Disabled

Also, under wireless security:

WPA2 personal

Thanks in advance

My wireless internet connection periodically drops using XP.

When I use the "repair wireless Network connection" option the laptop freezes and I have to power off and power up again which usually boots up with the wireless connection working again, until it drops again (could be a short time or a day or so).

No problem with other machines also running XP on the same wireless connection.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Wireless Connection Drops XP

What I would first is to check if the network driver is up to date. If necessary, go ahead and update it.

Also what are the specs and how is it running?
