Wifi working on phone but not working on Laptop

Q: Wifi working on phone but not working on Laptop

Hello,

Been struggling with my office wifi for sometime now. It works on my Windows 10 laptop with a LAN cable but doesn't work on wireless (constant disconnection, sometimes just wouldn't connect, sometimes it would connect and show internet access but internet wouldnt work). It works effortlessly on LAN and even wifi on my phone and other devices in the offices.

Request your help.

Thanks

ASUS Notebook G60Vx Series

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
A few days ago my internet suddenly stopped working. I plugged in the ethernet cord and everything worked fine. Checking the properties in the device manager showed the device was working properly, I also tried resetting it to make sure it was enabled but it did not work.

Upon troubleshooting, the "Windows Network Diagnostic" said the problems was that the Wireless adapter was not turned on. Using the switch on the front of the laptop as well as the function keys does nothing. Usually a graphic pops up showing if the WiFi is on or off, changinging transparent to show the WiFi is disabled. Now when I turn the switch on it always appears transparent, effectively going from off to off

So I know the computer reads both the function keys and the switch on the front but both methods never actually turns the adapter on. I just finished a system restore and nothing has changed

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
 

A:Wifi not working on ASUS laptop, LAN working fine

Maybe the switch or adapter is defective. Some other ideas ...

Do you have an ASUS utility to also turn the wireless on/off? (I have an HP utility on one of my laptops that will individually control the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if the physical switch is on.)

In Device Manager right click on the adapter - Properties - Advanced tab. Sometimes there is a Property in there that allows turning the adapter on/off.

If the card is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace the card several times to fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems.

I have a HTC One X and my notebook is a Samsung R720 running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1.

The wifi has been working perfectly on both my phone and notebook for a year or so, and now I installed a bunch of updates on my notebook and I think that caused my problems.

Now I have a DLink router, WPA protected WIFI network. It works great on my phone, but on my notebook it takes minutes to load pages, and sometimes it will say "___ is unavailble" in chrome. I always have 5 bars though, sometimes a small yellow triangle pop-ups but is gone in a split second.

I ran the diagnostics tool, which didn't help at all. Ran sfc scannow, didn't help either. Changed from WPA to WEP and back, didn't help, changed my wifi channel, didn't help either.

Do any of you have any ideas?

Thanks!

A:Wifi working perfectly on my phone, but a mess on my notebook.

Basic Requirements Before Posting your Networking Thread - Following this may help us in finding out the potential culprit. Also can you also run a system restore point to a point before the issue occurred. The following tutorial may help.

System Restore

Also can you try to update your drivers to the most current as this can be a potential cause.

NP-R720E - DOWNLOADS | SUPPORT | SAMSUNG UK

Samsung offer multiple drivers for certain WLAN card makers so I cannot offer a link to the one you need unless you can tell us the wireless card you have.

Speccy - System Information - Free Download

Speccy can help narrow down what particular driver you need if you are unable to determine which driver you need.

Lastly, What is the make/model of your router as you may need to make some changes.

Many Thanks,

I have a Dell laptop (Win7 Home Premium, 64Bit) and it seems like it always has difficulty connecting to WiFi routers that are using 802.11g. I have a Wireless-N card on my laptop and I would think it would be backwards compatible, right??
I'm the same person, with the same laptop, as this post: http://forums.techguy.org/networking/1079721-dns-lookup-failed.html
and all the symptoms that I was trying to solve in that post are relevant again.
At the time that post was made, I lived in an apartment and the modem/router from my cable company was wireless-G and my laptop seemed to experience intermittent DNS problems. I could never REALLY use the internet for very long, but sometimes some websites would seem to load, but usually pictures would have a problem. Other times the seemingly DNS issue would not let me load any websites at all. While I was on vacation I was able to connect perfectly to 2 different WiFi networks. I know for sure that one of them was Wireless-N (not sure about the other one).
Eventually I moved and my new modem/router from my new cable company was Wireless-N. My computer has connected to that network perfectly for months. Now, on vacation again, I tried to connect to a "G" network again and all the old problems came back EXACTLY as they were before.
Is it possible that my Wireless-N card has that much trouble connecting to Wireless-G networks? If so, is there any fix??

A:Wireless-N laptop not working on 802.11g WiFi

The signal is too weak for a reliable connection. Try closer to the router.

The variation in the signal strength indicates probable incorrect driver or defective adapter or router (or wireless access point). Try the latest wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site. If that does not work right try the driver directly from Intel's site.

If possible check Xirrus with another computer, or another adapter, to see if the router is having difficulty maintaining a constant signal strength (a variation of one or two dBm is OK).

I recently moved into a student house and we set up broadband with Virgin, we have the quickest package.
However the internet on my laptop cuts out a lot, and is generally slower than everyone else's in the house, regardless of where they are, even if they come into my room.
My laptop copes fine with the internet when Im at home too. So I don't know where to start in finding what the problem is!?
 

A:Wifi not working on my laptop, but does on others, even when they are in my room.

What operating system are you using?

What you can first try is plugging directly into the router and see if the problem still occurs. If it does, let me know. If it doesn't, try removing the network and then re-adding it.

If that doesn't help, boot into safe mode with networking to see if that problem still occurs:
- Turn on the computer or reboot it
- Continually press the f8 key until the advanced boot dialog appears
- Choose safe mode with networking
- Test the wifi - does the problem still occur?

The ethernet cable works just fine so I know it's not the internet itself just the wifi. Also, it's not my laptop as another laptop and kindle are unable to connect as well through the wifi but the other laptop can also connect through the ethernet. Is there anything I can do to try to get it working or is the router just burnt out and I need a new one? It's a few years old, a Cisco brand. Thanks.

Hello All,

I am trying to fix my brother-in-law's laptop hp pavilion dv6, windows 7 (64-bit). He is having problems connecting to the internet through the laptop wifi. It shows all the surrounding routers including his, but won't connect either way. He has a sprint wifi card that he uses to connect with no problems. Now, if that is working, than what is causing the laptop wifi not to work? I even looked on the hp website for any answers, and this is what I have read from other people using the same model:

1) Having the laptop plugged in the ac for most of the time might cause the motherboard to overheat and cause the wifi to not function. (My brother-in-laws does kinda have it plugged in most of the time, that I have seen.)

2) Might have to download the new version of the Bios, wireless assistant, and the wireless drivers off the hp website. Install software, reboot and just incase re-install the bios and that should fix the problem.

3) The motherboard might be the problem, might have to fix or buy a new motherboard. (Heh! Ahhhhh, I hope not, it's not even 6 months old.)

Well if anybody out there have any suggestions as to how this problem can be fixed, please feel free to throw them my way.

Hey all,

Yesterday I was at my bros house clearing up space on his Samsung s3510 laptop and I've removed a few programs and a Samsung related program although I can't remember what it was now. I ran malware removal software and it deleted what it found. I then installed the Kodi app to his laptop, so he could stream films etc and it didn't connect, so I removed his firewall.
All of a sudden, the wifi internet just suddenly stopped working!
Saying it cannot connect to the Internet. I'm still puzzled as to what I've done. The laptop says there is a connection available and when I go to click 'connect' it asks for name and password, but it still won't connect! Obviously bro and his gf are mega pissed off with me now! ha, really don't know what to do. Was working absolutely fine up until this point and I'm pretty sure I haven't removed any programs regarding the internet stuff.

Please can somebody help me on this!

Many thanks for taking time to read this and look forward to any replies!

Hello,
So the other day my laptop's wireless internet connection stopped working.
Other devices in my household are unaffected, including a desktop with a wireless connection, my phone, and a Playstation 3.

It tells me my internet is connected but it's incredibly slow and gives me DNS errors or time out errors, although sometimes I can connect to google but just barely.

I tried to use a USB Wireless Connection over the wireless adapter with no success. I have ensured my wireless network drivers are up to date. An ethernet cable works and I can connect when hardwired.

I have tried ipconfig release/renew and dnsflush/dnsregister.

My IPV4 and IPV6 are set to automatically connect.

I have reinstalled driver software for my wireless adapter.

Every time I ping my router, I get between 25%-100% packet loss, and consistently get 100% packet loss when pinging google and the like.

I thought it was a hardware issue until I used the Wireless USB device and it had no better effect.

At this point I suspect it's a firewall issue.
I've run a scan with malwarebytes and Kaspersky but neither turned up anything at all, not to rule out that it might be a virus or malware but just to indicate I've thought of that, too.

I run a Windows 8.1, Intel i5. If I need to include any other specs please let me know.

Hey guys,

I've been having a problem for a few days and have been looking everywhere for a solution with no luck thus far. I recently moved in with my girlfriend and my internet plan didn't include a router. Since she's not going to stay here for long (just til the end of the year), I've been routing the net from the cable modem through my laptop so all of our devices can be connected.
Problem started happening when she had to plug the cable on her laptop one day as I was away for uni and we simply cannot take the damn cable out of it. I'm working on getting a replacement one before I can try bruteforcing it, but I'm also worried that it might break the port.

In any case, we've been using her laptop as the router for the last few weeks, but somehow Virtual Router Manager doesn't work here (it fails to recognize the virtual mini port), so I'm manually routing it using the netsh wlan script. The problem is that it simply stopped working last week and I have no idea why.
The network is still being set succesfully and all devices can connect to it, but they can't connect to the internet. Doing a adapter troubleshooting, windows says it's because it doesn't have a valid IP connection. I've since looked for solutions for this online, but none of them fit my problem.

A:Laptop WiFi extremly slow and stops working

Drivers are about the only issue that can be fixed without replacing the card. Here is the driver download page: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5271102&swItemId=ob_146625_1&swEnvOid=406... Note the instruction to remove prior drivers first. I would uninstall the wireless from device manager, use advasnced uninstall and remove the existing driver from the system and then reload the driver. Download the new driver and keep track of it as you uninstall since obviously once you uninstall you will not have wireless to download the driver with. If this does not work we need to think about replacement of the card. Have you otherwise installed the chipset and other drivers?

simply cannot take the damn cable out of it. I'm working on getting a replacement one before I can try bruteforcing it, but I'm also worried that it might break the port.

In any case, we've been using her laptop as the router for the last few weeks, but somehow Virtual Router Manager
doesn't work here (it fails to recognize the virtual mini port), so I'm manually routing it using the netsh wlan script. The problem is that it simply stopped working last week and I have no idea why.
The network is still being set succesfully and all devices can connect to it, but they can't connect to the
internet. Doing a adapter troubleshooting, windows says it's because it doesn't have a valid IP connection. I've since looked for solutions for this online, but none of them fit my problem.

I've tried the netsh reset log commands with to no avail. The computer connected to the wired modem has perfect
connection (I'm currently writing from it), it's just the hosted wifi that doesn't w... Read more

I have Gateway Laptop Model W3501 for 4 years, then today my wifi does not recognize any network. System tray network icon has a "X" red mark. I checked the device manager, and the network adapter is working properly. I even tried uninstalling and reinstall the adapter, and still doesn't work. The Fn F2 is not doing anything as well. I ran cmd: ipconfig /all and here's the text: The physical switch on the side of the laptop appears to not working as it doesn't make a sound when I tried to slide it. Any other function keys that I can use to enable the wireless or network connection? Please advise. thanks!

A:Gateway Laptop - wifi and networking stopped working

If you can easily access the wireless adapter through a cover on the bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace it several times to cure any possible looseness or corrosion problems. Make sure the antenna leads are secure.

If it still fails to turn on or detect any networks then probably the card or the switch has failed.

Sounds like you need a driver update for your Wifi Adapter i would go to the ASUS site and check if they have any updates for your particular machine

If that doesn't fix the issue you might need to do a system restore to where it was working also check if the protocol has been changed from Wifi to fixed connection

Hi guys! I'm new to this forum but I come here in the hope that you can help me figure out why is it that when I connect my TiVo to my linksys router(configured as a switch), I STOP HAVING WIFI! Don't know why... As soon as I turn the TiVo box off the wifi starts working(as soon as I reboot the router)... The TiVo works perfectly, no breaks and perfectly connected to the network, but that specific router switch where it is connected, stops functioning though wifi(can't even connect!)

The setup I wish to use(and that is currently working) is:

Modem router(Thomson)---through cable to another router(with dhcp and nat disabled)airporttime capsule)--- through cable to another router(linksys) also with dhcp and nat disabled... Everything works when not using the TiVo box...
The only switch that stops working is the linksys(the one to which the tivo is connected)

Hi there,
I recently had to replace my laptop due to some accidental and have now been given a Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook. It's the second one I've had as the first gave up the ghost.

My problem is that I have an existing Wifi network with a wireless desktop PC, a wireless work laptop and a Linksys Wireless Ethernet bridge for my PS3 (used to use it with the work laptop). My ADSL router is a Linksys. All works fine for the other PCs, but my new laptop just won't connect to the internet. The error message saying cannot renew IP address.

I had the same problem with the first 'replacement Lifebook'. I think I solved it by updating the Firmware on the router. There haven't been any new firmware updates and this is the same model as the previous laptop. Using WEP encryption rather than WPA as can't seem to get the right firmware for the bridge.

I'm now stuck.
Can anyone help?

Cheers

Hi,
My Internet suddenly stopped working on my laptop. I can connect fine on my phone, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the router. Nonetheless I've tried restarting the router but it didn't help (I've restarted my laptop too).
The windows troubleshooter said I'm connected fine and there's no problems, but I still can't access any Web pages. The icon on the task bar seems to be a monitor with a square in the top left corner rather than the usual connection bars.
I'm not on flight mode and there doesn't seem to be any physical switches on my laptop. I'm using Windows 10 and my Internet hasn't been working for around 24 hours now.
Hopefully someone is able to help me

A:Can connect to WiFi on phone but not laptop

Press the "Windows Button" and "R" simultaneously.
Typ in cmd
 
A new window will open.
Typ in cd Desktop
 
Then typ in ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt
Go to your Desktop and open the file "ipconfig.txt".
Copy and paste the content of that file here.

 
1. You may wish to omit the "Host Name" part, because of your privacy!! (in case your hostname includes real names of you or someone else)
2. If you do already have a file called "ipconfig.txt" on the Desktop, then you may wish to move that file somewhere else, otherwise it is being replaced.

Make sure your computer sees the wireless connection and reconnect to it. If it sees it but does not connect you will need to remove the wireless profile.

What operating system are you using?

Hi there,

I've just moved into a new place in France, and tried to connect my laptop to the WiFi here. My phone connected immediately with no issue, buy my laptop (which finds the network fine) connects only to show a 'limited' signal (with the yellow triangle/exclamation mark). I have 5 full bars of signal, and sometimes the little exclamation mark symbol even disappears. However even then, if I try to open a new webpage, I end up with an error page (this webpage is not available, ERR_TIMED_OUT amongst others). The webpage looks like it's trying to connect, it says connecting/establishing secure connection etc in the bottom left as it usually would. Only nothing ever loads.

I've found other people with similar issues on other threads and feel like I've tried everything bit nothing has changed. I have of course turned the modem off, waited and turned it back on again, I've run millions of commands on command prompt, tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless adaptor..I'm really not techy so I'm very stuck.

Would really appreciate any advice! Thanks in advance.

I use an Acer 5750g and use the WiFi service provided by my university. Once I connect to the university WiFi, it asks for my logon information after which I can use the internet as normal. The WiFi service is provided from 6am to 12:30pm. One night after using the net as normal,I tried logging on the next day and the network shows up as an "unidentified network". I then tried it on my phone (Lumia 820) and I am able to connect it to the internet. I stay on the 8th floor of my hostel. I then went up to my friend's room on the 10th floor and found that I am able to connect the laptop to the WiFi service and browse the net with no problems. When I bought the laptop down to my floor,the network shows up as "unidentified" again.

I tried all possible solutions I could find. I tried resetting tcp/ip
stack & winsock, uninstalled and reinstalled the network adapter(Broadcom 802.11n network adapter), tried restoring the system to an earlier time and even editing registry entries.

I haven't installed any windows updates recently. I use a windows 7 ultimate.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,

I have a PC connected to a smc router (smc networks wbr14-g2) I have my internet modem connected to this router so I can have a strong wifi connection (my internet modem is pretty far away).

I configured the wifi signal, I added a WEP key, etc. Now I can connect my smartphone easily and has a strong internet connection, but my PC doesn't, it recognizes the signal, it connects to it, but it tells me that I have no internet access.

It seems strange to me that my smartphone can connect to internet, even play netflix, but my PC can't.

Any tips?

I have windows 7 operating system.

Thanks

Hi

Have you setup a domain or are you using Homegroups for connectivity to your laptop? Can you post a picture of your Network & Sharing Centre screen?

You will need to pull the media files from the end device rather than push from the PC - hope you can understand that!

This means that first of all we need to ensure that your devices can see the PC and have access to the media files. Have you shared the directory containing the media files?

My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.
Please help me out.

A:My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.

Hello.The problem could be either in the hardware or the software, so you need to test each. Perform the tests below -- it doesn't matter which one you do first.

To test the speakers, perform the Quick Audio Check in the ePSA test. If the speakers fail the test then they have failed or become disconnected. (Click the link for instructions on how to run the test.)

To test the software, switch between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native driver. [This test assumes that your laptop has the Realtek audio driver. If you get to step 2 and do not see "Realtek High Definition Audio" then go to the Dell support page for your model and download the Realtek driver that Dell provides for the version of Windows that the laptop is running.]
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted,... Read more
