Connectify Virtual WiFi no Internet Access

Q: Connectify Virtual WiFi no Internet Access

I've been trying to use connectify to use my laptop as a hotspot.
I have an ethernet connection that my laptop connects to and i want to connect my itouch to the internet via wifi.
I installed connectify and it worked just as it says it should, I can even connect my itouch.
But i never get the internet connection with the itouch.
I've checked and my Atheros wireless adapter is supported and everything seems like it should work, but for some reason it doesn't.

Please help. I have a hunch it's maybe a small little thing that's blocking the internet (possibly a windows sharing setting?).

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

Hi, anyone know of a soft AP with ICS?

A:soft ap with ICS (no connectify no virtual router)

I figured it out.

read through this whole thing first, and decide, what you want to do.

begin:

1. hit windows button.
type cmd.
right-click, select run as administrator
type or paste and edit

this:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=sevenforums key=123454321
hit enter
now
type or paste and edit:
netsh wlan start hostednetwork

now you have a soft ap
all you have to do is setup ICS (internet connection sharing) this is the easy part.

hit windows button
type network and sharing
this will give you
network and sharing center
click that

on left side silly menu click "change adapter settings"

now you have to figure out which one is actually connected to the internet, should say Internet Access over on the right. if it doesn't I can't help you. should say something like a sentence like local internet connection 1 change that to something that makes sense, and remember what you did. call it internetz.

now figure out which one is called "Microsoft Virtual Miniport Adapter" now wait, hold on a second catch your breath, it's almost over. call it whygodwhy

now remember the one that you named "internetz"
select internetz.
right click it, now select properties.
right underneath where it says "Internetz properties"
select sharing.

here at the top of this will be an empty box, click it now under that it has a little thing, click that, and select "whygodwhy"

now at the bottom, click ok.

you should have now won the gam... Read more

I'm trying to share my computers internet connection with my iPhone and I'm trying to use Connectify for that. I had this in my computer before and it worked fine but recently I had to re-install my computer. Now I'm trying to connect to the WiFi hot spot created by Connectify but I can't seem to get a connection. When iPhone gets connected, it retrieves an IP out of the local network(164.XX.XX.XX) thus avoiding me going to the internet from the Phone. How do I go about this?

Hello,

Try disabling your in-built Windows Firewall or 3rd party program firewall (if there's any) for debugging purpose. See this link to help you troubleshoot the issue.

I've been searching my brains out with no luck. I use my blackberry USB tether for internet and use Connectify to broadcast it as WIFI. All of the sudden I go out of town and come back and everything is messed up. I cannot seem to send data at anything better then .10kbs. I have reformatted my OS, Blackberry and anything else I thought might be the issue.

I'm running out of options. Could it be the Connectify update that's the problem? (If there even was one) Windows update? IP6? I'm just at a loss here and really need the wifi

Oh and Firewall is completely turned off and there is no 3rd party apps on the machine. This is pretty much straight out the box with connectify and a few other programs installed but nothing that is a firewall, antivirus or security

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

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

If I can set up the computer to do this, I will cable connect to a router in that area.

(I had this computer sharing to the router, when I had DSL internet connection, using Windows wizard to set it up) Couldn't get it to work when I switched to WIFI internet access) I could switch to win 7 or 8.1 if that would help.

2. a Lap Top running WIN 8.1,

Any help is appreciated.

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

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

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

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

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

Hi, just thought I might ask the professional if they know of any issues concerning Virtual PC and access to the internet.

I've recently installed VPC on my computer and am running an XP client and Windows Server 2003 on two separate virtual hard disks.

The problem I'm having is, is that as soon as I run one, I can no longer access the internet on my host machine.

The real annoying part is that even if I exit and close the virtual operating systems and VPC altogether I still can't access the net.

I have unplug my router and modem, reconnect and restart my machine to be able to access.

Anyone know what may be causing the problem and a way around this?

Cheers,

HF.

Hello, I have had 2 people come up to me at my part time job saying they cant access the internet because there computer says they are low on virtual memory, what does low on virtual [u]memory actually mean and what can be done about it.

A:Can't Access Internet, "low On Virtual Memory"

Basically, the Page File (Virtual Memory) is what your operating system uses when it runs low on RAM resources.virtual memorypagingThe minimum should be 1.5 times your memory size. The maximum should be, at least, three times your memory. If you continue to have problems, raise the maximum. Keep raising it until you no longer get the message.Then click the Set button.Or, the best solution, you could increase the amount of RAM your system has by buying more, since raeding the hard drive is much slower than RAM.That's how I solved my, low virtual memory, problem.

After changing XP Mode's network adapter (in order to get port forwarding working), I found that I cannot access the internet using a browser anymore.

I went from Shared Network to Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller in the Virtual Machine settings, which broke its internet connection completely and gave the "limited or no internet connectivity" message. After going back to Shared Network, when loading any page in any of the virtual machine's browsers (Firefox, IE), the page would remain blank then time out after a while. However, pinging websites using cmd worked in the virtual machine. Using the 'repair' option in XP's Network Connections did not help. Disabling the firewall did not help either.

Also, the Windows 7 host machine's internet is working fine.

How do I fix this situation, without having to start anew with another virtual machine?

The other day I installed Connectify, a virtual wi-fi hotspot program that would allow my 3DS to connect to my PC internet. It all worked fine, my 3DS had internet, but i noticed something strange about my Laptop's internet. Whilst the internet worked okay, anything that tried to stream (Youtube videos, BBC radio 2) or steam downloads are now continuously stopping and starting every minute or so. In the case of youtube and BBC radio 2, this means I have to refresh the page before they resume streaming. When I uninstalled Connectify- the issue went! This surely means it's connectify that's disrupting my downloads/streaming, but if possible I'd really love to have Connectify at the same time as a fully functional internet if that's possible. Any help would be brilliant. Please ask for any system specs I can give you, I don't really understand the internetty side of things and theres a lot of info here.

Thanks so much!

I figured I'd post about this, I just came across it and it seems quite useful. Basically, it creates an alternative to an Ad-Hoc network. An Ad-Hoc network normally allows you to share an internet connection from one device (ethernet) through another device (wifi card) to any computers in the area.

Connectify actually simplifies and enhances this entire process. Instead of forcing you to use two devices (ethernet/wifi) to share your connection, you can share a wireless internet connection through that very same wifi card.

Another plus is the fact that it doesn't create an actual Ad-Hoc network. It creates a Hotspot which shows up on other computers as a real network. In addition to that, it uses WPA2 encryption and is very easy to set up.

Hi,

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

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

I just installed windows 8.1 pro on an MSI z97 pc mate motherboard with I5 3.3 ghz processor, 16 gb ddr3 1600 MHz ram, with embedded realtek pcie gbe NIC. I checked and found that hardware virtualization is enabled by default in the BIOS.

I tried to set up a virtual switch using the latest bios and drivers from MSI. I created a virtual switch choosing the external option and the share with host OS option. I then connected to the VM. No network connectivity on VM but host still worked.

I then used autopatcher to update windows 8.1 on the vm. I removed and reinstalled the virtual switch choosing external option and share with host OS option. Same conditions occurred.
And then I installed the latest NIC driver. Same problem - media disconnected.

I tried this process with the latest driver from the realtek website which was a couple years more up to date. I had such high hopes! Same problem.

I then used msconfig to prevent all non-Microsoft services from starting and rebooted. I removed and recreated the switch and I was still hoping for success. Same exact conditions occurred.

These are the conditions that occur whenever an external switch with host os sharing enabled is installed in between all of these troubleshooting steps. It looks exactly the same every time...

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

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

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

Hi,I have a 4 month old Lenovo E31-80 and I have trouble to connect to the Internet via a Wireless Network.I only have problems with private wireless networks (at my place and my sisters), public networks on a bus or at university worked perfectly fine. Also if I plug in my LAN cable, the wireless works, if its unplugged it shows a connection to the network but the internet access is not working. What I've tried so far:Restarting the computer (serveral times)Disconnect and reconnect to the network (several times)I disabled the option "switch device off for energie saving reasons"I reinstalled the wireless adapter (several times) Nothing works.I'd be really happy if anyone has any ideas how to fix this.Thanks

Hi guys,

Bought my new Sony Vaio today that of course came with Windows 8. I have completed the setup and installed Norton 360 and Office and tried (unsuccessfully) to uninstall McAfee. 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?

Dear Friends, Hope all is well.

I can access the Internet via ethernet cable, but I cannot via WiFi to my Network.
The wifi adapter is the Atheros AR5007 802-11b/g WiFi Adapter. Which may be outdated?
I'm not certain that's the entire issue?
I can access Mozilla using the ethernet cable, but if I try to use IE it has a connection issue. Stating:"Windows cannot find host name "internet explorer" using DNS." The domain server may be down. Windows found a problem that cannot be repaired automatically."
One suggestion was to use a USB adapter assuming the Atheros AR5007 802-11b/g WiFi Adapter is out of date or can't be updated? What do I know?!?

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated...

Hi guys, I have this problem that's been giving me a headache these days... I have a Dell XPS L502x with Intel centrino n6230 in tow.
Well, the laptop was working fine and all but started to have this weird connection drops in my work now and then, I blamed the router. 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.
It literally is driving me crazy, but before I refresh the system I wanted to see if you guys can help me out!
Thanks in advance

A:HELP! WiFi connected but cannot access internet!

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.

Can you connect by ethernet?

Why can't you uninstall McAfee? Did it get all tangled up with Norton? Tried the McAfee Removal Tool?

If/when you need to uninstall Norton Symantec has the Norton Removal Tool.

I have had a problem with my laptop for some months now and it is getting important that I fix it. If I try to connect to the internet using a wired connection Windows tells me I have no internet access and diagnostics says that the DNS resource cannot be contacted. Connection via wifi works fine (I'm using it now). I have spent many hours reading forum posts from sites claiming to address this issue; none have worked. The one explanation that I need to follow up is that I have a virus - hence this post.

some details:

Hardware is Lenovo Thinkpad SL500, about 8 years old, configured to dual boot Windows and Linux Mint 18 XFCE. Very surprisingly, the problem appears with both op.systems.

Windows is legitimate Win 7 64 bit with latest updates, via Automatic System Update

Primary use is for digitizing black vinyl music, with almost no internet access aside from getting music recording metadata (e.g. from discogs) and downloading a trial audio format conversion software. No antivirus software is installed, aside from Windows Defender. Windows Firewall is off.

In a previous incarnation, running single boot Win/XP, and then single boot Linux Mint, the laptop connected to the internet via a wired connection without problem and was used exclusively that way. I do not believe there is any problem with the LAN hardware in the laptop, as I am able to connect to the administration function of my router, via cable. I will also try a Live Linux CD to prove that I can get to t... Read more

I took my laptop to the computer repair shop and was advised that the wireless card wouldn't have to be replaced. They did some testing by using their USB dongle and it did the same. Both were able to get to the router but wouldn't connect to the internet. They said the issue is either the configuration or the settings. I have tried all the ipconfig commands but still not getting to the internet. Would someone walk me through the troubleshooting steps and eventually get to the internet?

From google browser, it says '...server IP address could not be found' DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

Ping www.google.com
Error: Ping request could not find host wwww.google.com. Please check the name and try again.

ipconfig / release
ipconfig /renew
Error: An error occurred while renewing interface wireless network Connection 3: A device attached to the system is not functioning.
I don't know what device it is referring to. from the device manager, the network adapter properties says 'This device is working properly.' Uninstalled and installed many times.

Running Windows 7

Is there a way to reset to factory settings?
