I'm having a wifi issue. My wifi signal will all of the sudden stop seeing available networks and my wifi connection will say "connected, no internet access." This issue does not occur with any other device I own.  I've tried: - turning my wifi adapter on and off - using the network troubleshooter, all this came up with was an error that says "network cable broken or not plugged in."       - i don't have an ethernet cord plugged in - searching for an update to the network driver - uninstalling and reinstalling the network driver       - this serves only as a temporary fix ( 5-10 mins) - uninstalled and reinstalled with a driver that was downloaded online - turning off bluetooth and ethernet connection options under "change adapter options" none of these have resolved the issue and i'm out of options. Also, sometimes the wifi icon in the system tray will disappear along with the driver for the network adapter.

Hey everyone,
I'd really appreciate any help you guys can give on the issue...I'm at my wits end at this point...

So anyway, about a month ago my old 2wire modem pretty much kicked the bucket for good (after about 4 years of more or less dedicated service with the occasional hiccup here and there, I was kind of saddened yet relieved) and I was left without internet for a few days. I contacted my ISP with the issue, and after a bunch of failed restart attempts on their end (I told them the damn thing was dead already, but they were insistent on making sure I wasn't bs'ing them) they finally relented and decided to send me their new Pace 4111n router/modem.

A few days later, low and behold, I had a new Pace and guess what? IT HAD WIFI!!

The reason why this came as such an interesting surprise was because my old 2Wire that my ISP had originally provided us with was simply a modem with no router/wifi capabilities on it. In order to bypass the lack of Wifi, I had to purchase a Netgear N300 router and had it hooked up to the 2Wire for years with no connectivity issues.
Anyway, with the new Pace in hand, I put my old Netgear away and plugged the new baby in....and here is where things kinda went downhill....
Now...my old set up was kinda strange...I used to have the 2Wire modem hooked up to the Netgear router and in between had a Grandstream HT502 Voip phone adapter plugged in (we have the need in my household for long distance phone service, and in order to ... Read more

Uhhg, im about ready to spontaneously combust, and if i was drinker, i probably would have already, considering alcohol would only fuel that process further. But here is the deal (ill start with problem #2 first, since thats more important for me right now).

I have an older pc that im trying to connect to another pc for LAN connectivity, etc. The older one is a Pentium 4, with XP-SP3 on it. The one i use for all my gaming and 'hardcore' stuff, is a Core2 E8400, with XP SP2 on it (didnt want to put XP3 on it, till im done seeing how things run on the other pc, and what apps will/wont work). For about 5 days, i tried connecting my Linksys WUSBF54G Wireless Adapter to the P4, only to be pounded with Code 10's Device Cannot Start until i put it into a different USB port for the 192nd time, and it suddenly decided to work . Of course, now i cant connect to my own router, but thats been going on for ages and i cant seem to fix it. I thought maybe it would suddenly work when i tried it now, but still no luck. It broadcasts fine, shows in the WZC Network Search section on the P4 w/ good signal strength, and i can connect to another unsecured network in my household just fine. I tried my own router with WPA2 encryption, and then without it, but still, it just says CONNECTING and then the window disappears (no error, nothing). Afterwards, when i look at the wireless network monitor in the taskbar, it says 54mb, NO SIGNAL, Wireless Network Connection (ACCESS POINT), but... Read more

My wife's HP ENVY m6-1125dx PC using Windows 8 with Ralink RT5390R 802.11 bgn wifi adapter would lose wifi connection with the VERIZON FIOS Actiontec MI424WR router after 13-14 minutes; plugging the ethernet cable in would regain internet access, or restarting the PC but the issue would return in 13-14 minutes. My Toshiba laptop, using Windows 7, stayed connected when my wife's laptop lost its wifi connection. The other devices in our house (Wii, TIVO, printer, etc.) had no connection issues. Interestingly, my wife's laptop had no wifi connection losses with other hotspots (Best Buy aka Geek Squad, McDonalds, Starbucks, Panera, etc); so this issue was specifically between the Ralink wifi adapter and the Actiontec router wifi.

Just updating the laptop wifi adapter driver did not fix the issue. HOWEVER, uninstalling the driver then reinstalling the latest wifi adapter driver from the HP website seems to have fixed the issue. Also installed the Intel Wireless Drivers for Microsoft Window 8 from the HP website.

Hello,  I wanted to clear some issues about my HP Pavilion laptop, I have searched online and most things havent worked for me, I have realised that my wifi usually goes to limited connectivity when either I take my laptop off my lap and place onto my bed (perhaps its because the fans cannot push the hot air out because they are being blocked?) and when I put my charger in. To temporarily fix this I have been going onto the "Network and Sharing Centre" and disabling and re-enabling my wifi, however sometimes I have noticed that I disable it and when I try to re-enable it stays as disabled so.. I hope someone from the support team can help me out, thanks.

Hello guys,

I am having some issues with my internet lately.

I am using an "ARRIS SURFboard SBG6580 Docsis 3.0 Cable Modem and Wi-Fi N600 Router". My laptop is a Dell Studio 1558 and running Windows 7.

Issue : While being connected to the internet network via wifi, I get "no internet access" after browsing the internet for 20-30 minutes. I get the "wifi yellow caution" icon. Thereafter I disconnect from my network and then reconnect to the same network. Instantly I get wifi access when I reconnect.

This keeps on happening at first every 10-15 minutes, after a while it happens every 2-3 minutes.

I also connected to this internet Wifi network with my HP Elitebook laptop running Windows 7. I get "no internet access" as well on this laptop after initial 20 minute use. Then I have to disconnect and reconnect the network. Wifi starts working instantly.

Interestingly, the Dell and HP never simultaneously go on "no internet access".

On my cell phone running android, I very rarely see any drop in wifi while connected to this network.

To test if my Laptop wireless card was functioning properly, I connected it to my cell phone hotspot (different network) for 3 hours. Absolutely no drop in connectivity.

My suspicion is that there is something going on with my Modem/Router settings. Can someone please help me with this ?

Hello all! I hope I'm not breaking any rules by doing this, but I had an issue over the weekend where my PC wouldn't connect to the internet, and it took me hours to fix! I wanted to post what I did here in this forum since this popped up in the Google search most often so others can find it. Also I can't figure out how to put the SOLVED icon in the title, can an admin help? Thanks.

Some brief background; I'm running an old HP Compaq 6730s with Windows Vista Business 32-BIT that still runs pretty well. I decided to clean it up a bit and went and deleted a bunch of programs including Comodo Firewall, I'm inclined to believe my issue was caused by the sudden deletion of this program (maybe old setting still in effect causing a conflict, etc) but I'm not certain. After restarting my computer I could see networks in my area but could not fully connect to them. The windows diagnostic tool said it was either a hardware issue with my Intel Wifilink 5100 AGN or the IPV4 and IPV6 needed to be switch on. Which they already were.

The most prevalent things that I did that seemed to fix the issue in no particular order

1. Run scf/scannow through the Command Prompt window as an administrator.
2. Run a chain in Command Prompt 'netsh int ip reset' as a administrator.
2. Went to the Network & Sharing Center, Manage Connections and right-click on the primary wireless connection and go to properties.

Hello, i have a very strange situation at the moment and I'm hoping someone can help.

I have a standard home wifi router from my isp downstairs (arris) and I use a Tp-link range extender/hot-spot upstairs, my laptop has started playing up and I can't figure out why.
When I connect my laptop (acer swift 1) to the tplink extender upstairs it works as it should, wifi is full signal and 50+ mbps. However when I connect it to the router downstairs, even if I am sat next to the router, the signal bar is full however speeds are 1-5mbps and drop to nothing every 30 seconds or so, Web pages won't load saying there is no connection.

I thought it may be the wifi card (Intel AC 7265), but I ruled it out as it works perfectly on the repeater and other people's routers.

I don't know if it's the main router either as all other devices (phones tablets etc.) work perfect with the downstairs router. It only happens with my laptop.

I have updated all drivers and done the usual rebooting of routers and laptop etc. And still no better.

Hope someone can help.

I currently have two cables. One cable is a yellow ethernet cable that is plugged into my motorola cable modem in the Ethernet slot. The opposite end is plugged into the Slot 1 slot in my Linksys wireless router. My second cable is a grey ethernet cable. One end is plugged into the back of my computer and the opposite is plugged into Slot 2 slot in my Linksys wireless router. All of the lights are on both my modem and my router as if everything is working okay. The internet works as well.
However, when I try to access my Linksys wireless settings by typing in in my address bar, it says the connection has timed out. It says this each time.
Now, when I move my yellow ethernet cable, that is plugged into Slot 1, into the Internet slot in my Linksys router, and I slide my grey ethernet cable to Slot one, I restart my router and I am now about to access However, though I can access these settings, I cannot browse the internet. When I go to google or any other website, it says page cannot be displayed. Therefore, I cannot easily toggle between the Linksys settings and my internet, without moving around wires and restarting my router.
I'm doing this because I'm trying to configure my router with WiFi so I can use my Nintendo DS. Can anybody tell me why I'm having such difficulty with being able to view the Linksys settings and keep my internet connection at the same time? By the way, my Linksys Wireless Router is a WRT54G.

A:Router and Modem WiFi Issue

Well, the modem has to connect to the WAN/Internet connection or you won't have any success here. What's happening now is the computer is connecting directly to the modem and using the router as a simple switch.

Do NOT try to configure the router using the wireless connection! Connect it with a cable for configuration, then you can disconnect it once you get it all configured.
Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:


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

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.

I have a toshiba Satellite L500D that seems to have issues connecting and reconnecting to wifi signals.

At my house it only connects once in a blue moon and when it does connect it cuts off and disconnects after a couple minutes of use. When I reboot it, it doesn't connect automatically and I have to search for my ssid and connect that way.

I brought it to my fiends house to test, and it seems to run smoother. No random disconetions but It still wont automatically reconnects after a reboot. (actually it does on a restart or a reboot within a couple of minutes, but anything longer and it doesn't remember and reconnect automatically)
I have the auto reconnect box checked off, Not sure why it wont automatically do it.
Im not sure If I should get a new router at home or a new wireless card or both?

edit; I have installed and reinstalled the wireless adapter drivers fr Toshiba site over and over w/ no change.

One of the laptops at work is having issues, and I think someone with monkey hands screwed something up. As "the computer guy", it's on me to get it fixed.

His Windows 7 computer will not connect to a wifi network. It can detect them (so I know the radio is on), but after half a beat, I get that "windows was unable to connect" message".

Thinking it was the internal card, I connected my external antenna, and got the same error. So I think I can rule out hardware. I tried using an identical laptop from work, and that one connected with no problem. So I think I can rule out any issues with my router.

I've updated all the possible drivers on the computer, Windows is up to date, and i've disabled IPV6.

Here's where it gets weird. He can get an intermittent connection when he uses his phone's hotspot.

A:Windows 7 wont connect to wifi (not a hardware / router issue)

can we see an ipconfig /all and an xirrus
What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG etc

have you tried a restore to a working date ?

usually company PCs are configured in such a way - that we are unable to provide assistance - as we may suggest doing something which is outside the companies process/rules

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

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

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

I used to have AT&T Uverse internet service. When using their service they gave me a D-Link DWA-140 range booster. I recently got a Nighthawk AC1900 smart wifi router model R7000 and now am using Charter internet. I have been using the D-Link range booster and was curious if it was compatible with my Nighthawk AC1900 router as far as capable speeds so I asked the question in a yahoo answers forum and I received the following response. "You CAN use the device BUT it is a Draft 802.11n Wireless USB Adapter thus it can not and will not deliver 802.11AC speeds that your AC1900 uses! The 1900 will simply revert to "N" speeds and those are much slower than 1900mbs!" If that is the case then obviously I don't want to use it if it will slow speeds down. When I unplug the D-Link range booster and restart my computer I can't locate any options for WiFi on my windows computer running windows 7 premium. Do I have to reset my Netgear Nighthawk router in order to see wifi options again? Thanks in advance for any assistance anybody can offer me.

I recently bought dlink D2750U WIFI ADSL modem/router, for my ADSL internet connection.

But I have now changed my ISP, who provide internet via cable(not telephone line). The ISP guy provides a cable modem(old modem) along with it.

I have connected my PC this way:
Cable modem -> Router -> PC through RJ45. I am able to access internet from my PC, but I am not able to get wifi working on the router. And I am logging onto internet through a dial up connection.
1) Please help in configuring the router to get wifi working.
2) Also, my default gateway seems to be either or blank. So, I am not able to login to the modem unless I remove the modem connection. Please let me know if I am doing anything wrong here.

Here are a few more details:

A:Using dlink D2750U Wifi Modem/Router As a Wifi Router

Hey Narain. The D-Link unit you have appears to be a combo unit (modem and wireless router) since it connects straight to the RJ-11 phone line. This unit won't work with an ISP that provides service by way of coax cable. The D-Link will work if you want to use DSL, but you need a cable service compatible modem or combo modem/router if you use cable service.

I can connect to my home wireless (on it now) and the last time I was at Chick-Fil-A near home I could connect. But, yesterday I was out of town and was trying to connect to an Open Network and got the "Connected" but Limited/No Connectivity message. So I went to a nearby Chick-Fil-A but couldn't connect there either.

I am so confused . . . . I will try the Winsock resets, etc. But if anyone sees or knows what's going on, please let me know. I have an event back down there tomorrow and REALLY need to get on the network there . . . .

I am looking to replace my tired Linksys WRT54G router that is about 10 years old. I love the router, and its even better with DD-WRT on it, but I'm starting to have troubles with the wifi dropping all the connects for a couple seconds when running all my wireless devices. I have 3 smart phones, 2 tablets, 1 Chromecast, a smart TV, and Roku + a laptop or 3 in my house right now, and it seems like its getting to be a bit much for it.
I have had to completely re-flash the firmware twice this year to get the wifi working again, so I'm thinking its time for replacement.
I have been thinking about just getting the new WRT54GL for $50, but I'm also thinking it might be a good idea to upgrade the wifi technology past wireless G .
I'm wondering if my Tablet (Nexu 9), and our smartphones (Razr HD Max) along with the Chromecast will take advantage of the new wireless standards and higher speeds or not? If they will can someone recomend a decent wireless router that takes DD-WRT nicely in the sub-$100 range? Thanks!

A:Looking for new Wifi Router - Will Tablet/Smartphone take advantage of new wifi Standards?

I been programming in Android/Linux since 2010 and there is code that supports VHT is Very High Throughput. Right now the standards are HT is High Throughput .

As for DD-WRT firmware is like your overclocking your router pushing it beyond the OEM limits. I use to use DD-WRT but had quit many years ago since the routers that used that firmware would fail too much.

So best to buy a better business type enterprise router wired then you can use WiFi router as AP or just get WiFi AP(access point). To me WiFi Router is also Wired Router, but to use just a wired router and use WiFi AP through a switch is better. If one or the other goes you can easy replace them. Where as if the WiFi Router fails you would need to replace it.

If you really want to use DD-WRT then Look at Buffalo WiFi Routers some come pre-installed with DD-WRT on them. Frankly you really don't need DD-WRT today because newer routers or WiFi routers are much better built and offer much more power NPU = network processor units and 128, 256, 512, 1GB of RAM some have Dual Cores.
