I have recently bought a new pci wifi lan card (Ralink rt61 turbo) and have plugged in and installed drivers. Initially the drivers the company I bought it from told me to install didn't work, but after some googling found the correct drivers and downloaded from Ralinks website. However these didn't work either.

When using the Ralink wireless utility it says that the card is disconnected, however in device manage it is both connect and the correct drivers installed and everything is perfectly fine.

I ignored the wireless utility and hoped that windows 7 would still be able to use the wireless card as past experiences have shown to be true. This case however I get nothing. Windows 7 says that the wireless card is experiencing problems, it doesn't show any of the routers that should be shown.

I have been looking around a lot and there have been several drivers that should have worked and they haven't.

I would have thought that the antenna is broken or the card doesn't work however when I use it with ubuntu instead of windows 7 it works perfectly fine without any hassle, so the card is definitely working.

Any advice that anyone can give on how to resolve this would be very welcome.

I recently downloaded the Windows 10 update, and it installed fine. I then downloaded a driver app which updated most of my drives for me, a few weeks later I encountered WHEA errors whenever I would watch videosWhen the errors stopped occuring, I was unable to receive any Wifi Signal (only Ethernet Network was available), the driver for the wireless connection apparently 'dissapeared' and it seems that the computer is not able to detect the Wifi card anymore...I have tried downloading all the necessary drives for the wifi card, also tried to roll it back from windows 10 to the OS it came with (win8), all to no avail...Any help?

My computer's wifi connection works great when I turn on my computer. After about 30 minutes, my internet connection is lost. When I check my connection, it says that my wifi is on but does not detect any wifi connections near me so I can't even select my router to reconnect. My phone and Roku are still connected just fine though. After I restart my computer, the wifi will work for a little while. What is the issue?

what is best network card to recive a wifi signal from far away? Network Card or any type of hardware

A:What is best network card to receive a wifi signal from far away?

I assume you mean desktop.
What do you mean by "...a wifi signal far away..." Indoors, outdoors, upstairs, next door
Do you have control of the "far away" source?
We recommend Linksys 802.11N WMP300N for PCI card, or the DLink DWA-542 Range Booster Wireless N.
But there is some advantage to using a USB Wireless N Linksys USB WUSB300N because you can move it around to get the best results for the local environment...

I have an IBM ThinkPad laptop, running XP-pro, I picked up a malware and now the WIFI will no longer connect. I believe I have removed the malware file, "hppuser.exe", I uninstalled my one HP driver and made sure the hard disk was cleaned up of all HP files, even took "hppuser.exe" out of the regestry.
The malware also shut-down the windows firewall. I ran "IPCONFIG/all", perhaps this is a starting point. Maybe you can give me any help or ideas of what to do.

I have a new HP Notebook - 15-AY080NIA - (X5Y74EA) Weak wifi signal issues  I'm getting only 1 bar signal strength but all other devices in the house have a full strength signal.

Hi all. Really hope someone can help me here.
I am using an Asus RT-N66U. Signal for wifi at home has never been great, but on a visit for Christmas to the in laws, I was stunned. My father in law has the exact same router. His house is 2 floors and god knows how many rooms. The router is located in the study on the ground floor.
There wasn't a place in the house that didn't get me full signal.
So when I got home I was annoyed my router is hopeless.

To better understand I've made some images. First, this is the WiFi map of my apartment. It's a 2 bed flat on one floor.
As you can see, I shouldn't get that much drop off for such a short distance. The wifi in the toilet/bathroom is unusable and the 2nd bedroom is hopeless.
When I pop outside the front door, the signal also drops. Not to the point of unusable, but watching youtube is futile. I'm on a 125meg connection by the way.

Here is some wifi scans of the area. Firstly, right beside my router.

Mine is the red one, with the silly name. Don't ask, my partner did it.

Now another scan taken from the bathroom.

Finally, my settings for the router:

The things I have tried:

Changing wifi channels. Curently now set to 13u
Increasing the TX power to 100.
Moving router away from DECT phones and the TV area. But due to cable restrictions, I can't move it any more.
Installing custom firmware on the device in an effort to increase range.
Used 2 other wireless routers, results si... Read more

When i turn on bluetooth on my notebook , my wifi stops catching signals that are not in the same room , everything goes to normal when bluetooth is off

Read other answers

Not a problem or a trouble message; just a question about how to do something.

I travel in my RV and now days many campgrounds advertise they have wifi. Trouble is, they do, but unless you stay about 6" (that's inches, not feet, but perhaps I'm too sarcastic) you can't pick up anything remotely resembling a decent signal.

I want to connect and stay connected IN my RV. Now I know that having redwoods between me and the signal will not help. Nor will a monsoon or other bad weather, I guess.

But in general, what sort of gizmo should I shop for, to boost signal strength coming into my laptop?

I have a Toshiba Satellite A15-S127, 256mb ram, (soon to become 768), windows home sp2, a linksys ext wifi card that I plug into the PCMCIA (?) slot on the side of the puter, and only 2 USB ports, one of which is always for my mouse, so only one free.

Suggestions, please, that won't break the bank?

Hi Tom,

You may need a better antenna than what is built into the laptop or into a plug-in card. JohnWill posted some links of interest for someone else with a similar problem ...


Have you tried using your computer's WiFi connection outside of your RV? It might be acting as a shielded room, blocking the signals.

I have asus x55a, windows 7 i have tried to update my wireless drivers.

A:Suddenly laptop find only close wifi signals.


Try reseating the wireless adapter

If the adapter is easily accessible, usually through a cover on the bottom of the laptop.
Remove the power adapter and also the Battery before doing the following
Remove and reinsert carefully and firmly several times to cure any possible looseness or corrosion.
At the same time check to make sure the antenna leads are securely attached.

Note: This is not taking the machine apart. I do not recommend removing the keyboard when that is necessary to find the wireless, unless you are experienced in this sort of disassemble.

There are often some good examples of how to disassemble laptops on "youtube" and you should see if the wireless card is on the bottom of the laptop

Heres an example (they do vary) of a wireless card - with the clips where the aerial leads usually clip

My laptop is an X1carbon 4rth gen with an intel Ac8620 card. I have updated drivers. I tried to connect to my home wifi, and as it tried to connect, it failed then all potential wifi networks previously detected disappeared. Nothing. Restarted the laptop, the same thing happened, rebooted again. Nothing at all. I took it to work and connected to the Wifi no problem. I take it home; I connect to the wifi no problem. I stay at home for a few days, and it works the entire time. Yesterday night, I take it to work, some difficulties but the wifi is weak and sketchy. I take it home: Nothing. While I was at work, windows updated. I've tried updating drivers. I've been attempting changing wifi channels, nothing.No, airplane is mode not on. Yes, other devices can connect to the network. No uninstalling the device did not work. Yes, I tried the cmd prompt troubleshooting problems on the support page. Yes, it was working previously. No, setting it to 20hz instead of auto did not work. No setting it to type B did not work. No using a wireless adapter USB stick did not work. Same symptoms.

I've been working on this for three days already, I am using win 7 64bits with a TP-link router.

I've just moved in to a new house, with a router set up by my landlord, for the first day, I couldn't connected to the wifi, but somehow I worked that out, and could now connected to the internet (Occasionally, still couldn't get connected sometimes). Anyway, since there's no problem connecting to the wireless network, I realize it is very very unstable, it's running really slow, and might lost access to internet even when the signals show everything's fine. I tried different methods, ipconfig /release and renew, uninstalling my driver, all kinds of stuff, but the problem still exist.

What can I do?

Have you tried changing the channel that the wireless is using? The type of security and encryption being used can also make a difference.

Hi thanks for taking the time to read this post ,

I've been having trouble whenever I try to connect wirelessly for almost two months.

Here is what happens: It is not easy to connect from a series of available WIFI,due to poor signal and this happens in places where I used to connect rapidly. Also, I get constantly disconnected, again due to poor or non existent WIFI signal. Since all this started to take place I have to connect practically next to a/the modem (in desperate instances, I even have to use an Ethernet cable), whereas previously distance to the router did not seemed to influence the signal I was getting or the possibility of connecting. What I mean is, I could get fairly good signal within the limited possible distance to connect to a modem.
Moreover, the system started to crash often, specially if using a few programs. This is a pretty new machine, so again it is evident that something out of place is occurring. While surfing the net, it may freeze the whole window or tab. Other times the system becomes painfully slow, all of which did not occurred before. All these various malfunctions commenced 45 days ago more or less.

So far I've tried NPE, since I use w8 tried the option of refreshing the computer, but nothing has helped.
Here is all the requested logs
I thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

I'm having a problem that's been on and off with my.wifi for a while. I have a Yoga 2 Pro and the WiFi card seems to disappear completely and I can't get it back without removing all the batteries and leaving it a while. It's not like it needs a driver update, it totally disappears as if it's not even installed and won't show up in any OS or even under the "rfkill list command". It appears to be completely failing. Thing is I've swapped it out and it seems to be some part of the operation that mounts it that isn't working. I notice that it installs into the power board and not the motherboard. Would swapping this fix it? Does anyone have any ideas?

Hey guys,

So, what i'm trying to do is create a wifi hotspot using my computer. In other words, turning my computer into a router. I'm wanting to do this so i can use my ipod at home instead of only when i'm around other wifi hotspots.

My computer is running off of a wired router, so that i can play online on my PS3 as well. I was told wifi doesn't work well with Ps3's normally so i just bought a wired router. So, the mainline internet cord is plugged into a wired router and then another line runs into my computer.

For some reason, after i make an adhoc connection, the computer is not sending the required information to the iPod so that it connects to the internet.

I've tried entering in the information into the Static tab in my ipod as well, and still only get Local Connection instead of Local and Internet.

This is what my connection looks like through the router using ipconfig /all:

A:Creating Wifi hotspot with built-in computer wifi card.

Hi Cromsy,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as that. You are connected to the router fine with your computer, but that tells us nothing about the ipod because wireless is off (but that's not the whole story either - you need something extra to do what you want). The following article should tell you what you need and how to do it: How to Connect iPod Touch to Windows 7 Ad-hoc Wireless Network. Although it says Windows 7, there are procedures for Vista as well (and the software will work with Vista).

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

I have just replaced my WiFi card from (BCM943228HMB) to BCM94352HMB. Before replacing my WiFi card i done the following:

1. Made computer boot in safe mode with networking.

After that i replaced the card, then booted into windows 10 (safe mode with networking) and checked device manager. Everything was OK (See attached picture). I then tried to turn on WiFi, but it does not turn on. Any help is appreciated.

A:WiFi not working after replacing WiFi card [BCM94352HMB]

Why are you booting into safe mode? I would connect a network cable to the wired network port, if possible for you. In regular windows, not safe mode, right click on the 802.11ac network controller and uninstall. Right click on the top device manager entry for the computer itself and select scan for new hardware.

You probably need to turn it on using one of the touchkeys above the keyboard? Usually it lights up when it is turned on......check that in the manual.

recently i was having major computer issues on my desktop, i did a full restore to factory settings and after doing a few windows updates i found that my network adaptor was not finding any signals. it does not show up in the change adaptor settings page or in the device manager page. when i troubleshoot my internet connection it says an ethernet cable is not properly plugged in. I have a desktop computer but it definately has a wireless network card. i used to get windows updates for it and it just stopped working one day. when i look in the BIOS the only option related to booting a network card is B03 D00 Yukon PXE. no matter when i boot it i still dont get wireless signals. when i go into the boot menu and try to boot this device it says " PXE E61: media test failure please check cable" i have opened the tower and the card is securely in its slot. i thought i would workaround by getting a usb wifi card. I installed it and connected to the internet and it alternated between having a connection to the internet and being connected to the network but not the internet. even when it is connected to the internet i cannot reach any web pages. my dropbox desktop files update very slowly (7kb/s). when i am connected with the usb card the network stops working for everyone else in the house. they can no longer reach web pages or continue downloads. please help.

Hi guys, I'm not too much of a tech savvy so I won't understand everything but I'd like to thank everyone in advance for any support I can get.
Recently the PC that I built on mostly second hand components is failing to send signals to my monitor. Everything had been working perfectly for the past 6 months. When booting up, I am able to see the windows icon for a bit and access bios but afterwards, a black screen followed by a blue box displaying "No signal detected" occurs. This began occurring about a week ago but I could bypass it by restarting my PC multiple times until it booted normally. Until now however, it does not seem to start up at all and I only see "No signal detected".
I began by checking the inside of my PC and seeing that everything was where it was supposed to be and plugged in. Next, I reinstalled my graphics card to see if it would change anything (it didn't). A friend offered advice claiming that the issue could be driver related so I decided to try and boot into safe mode to uninstall my drivers and reinstall them. I couldn't access the windows troubleshoot page on start up (shift+f8) and I searched up methods to boot into safe mode. With the amount of access I had, I decided that I needed Windows 10 ISO on USB so I could manually go into the repair menu. I plugged the USB (Kingston DataTraveller 2.0) in and tried to boot from it manually through bios but I continued to receive the error. I've thought abo... Read more

My computer can't connect to any wifi, at my home wifi I'll get limited access. It says connect to Ethernet, but I don't see how that solves my problem. Is it because my windows isn't updated?

I don't know how this happened. I turned my computer off one night, and when I turned it on the next day, the computer turned on, but the monitor stayed in Power Save mode, then I found out that it wasn't receiving a signal from the computer. I already tried switching out DVI cords but it still doesn't work. Help?

I looked online and I'm still a bit confused whether I should get dual or single band wifi for a laptop that I would like to purchase. Can someone explain to offer a suggestion as to which one is best?

Thank you in advance.

A:dual band wifi card vs single band wifi card

I should get dual or single band wifi for a laptop that I would like to purchaseClick to expand...

do you mean a router
or as part of the laptop spec ?

what router do you have and does it work in dual band simultaneously

the advantage of the 5ghz signal is if you are in a crowded 2.4ghz environment then 5ghz helps avoid interference - also the coverage is wider - although the 5ghz router i have linksys - does not seem to be

if your current router only works in 2.4ghz , then no advantage in the short term

some routers are advertised as dual band - but you have to choose between 2.4 or 5 ghz and so ALL devices will need to support 5ghz

I am using windows XP pro, with service pack 2. My computer has been working with succesfully with wifi previously. But, my landlord installed a new wifi network system and it works for every computer in the network except mine. He doesnt know why.

On my list of wireless networks, it says there is a strong signal for the network, and that I am currently connected to it. I have entered the network password correctly.

But it also says:
Status: Limited or no connectivity. The network did not assign a network address to this computer
If I click the repair button, it says:
Windows can not repair the wireless network because the following action can not be completed: renewing your IP address. For assistance contact the person who manages your network.

I think that the transmitter/router does not want to communicate with my computer. I dont know why.

In: wireless network connection status > properties > internet protocol TCP/IP > properties...
... I have the following boxes checked ...
'obtain IP address automatically'
'obtain DNS server address automatically'

My wireless card details: wireless-G PCI adapter. device type: network adapters. manufacturer: Linksys

IP address =,
I have been told that an IP address in the range of 169.254.xxx.xxx (like mine) is what windows assigns to itself if the adapter is connected, but can't find a DHCP server.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
