Preferred Solution: How do you set up a WiFi internet connection

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.)

A: How do you set up a WiFi internet connection

The only thing you need now is a wireless router and an internet connection. You will need to configure the router and hook your internet connection to it. On your laptop, search for your router on the available networks, and connect to it.

Although I am connected to our wireless network on the Folio 13, there is no internet connection. I can, however, connect to the internet via Wifi on two other household laptops, both of them HP, so I believe the problem is with the Folio itself. I can also connect to other computers on the network on the Folio, but something is preventing it from getting on the internet. I can only get the internet via hardwired ethernet connection on the Folio. I have tried the following fixes, multiple times, without success: -Run the Windows troubleshooter for Internet/Network. It says the connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken. (But not on other wifi computers here--works fine.)-Reboot/Reset the modem.-Disable/Renable the wifi adapter (Intel Centrino Wireless N 1030)-Update wifi adapter driver (it says driver is up to date)-Uninstall/reinstall wifi adapter-Remove Wifi Network from list of available networks; reboot, add this network back in-Roll back all Windows updates from the past month-Searched self-help forums for a possible solution And yes, the wifi keyboard light is blue, not orange. Can someone help please?

Dear all,
I generally have good WiFI connection, but in two rooms so I am running a TP-Link system for Wifi through my powernet, which provides me with WiFI in our working space. No problems here.
I have been noticing that on my laptop, when I sit in the living space, my internet connection is dropping WITHOUT losing connection to the WiFi network. This makes me reset my adapter but mostly without succes. Sometimes it spontaneously regains internet connectivity. This happens at random (to me). My cell phone doesn't have the same problem, nor does my GF's computer.
I notice that when i go back to the workspace (where wifi is distributed through my TP-link), more often then not I instantly regain connection. Which makes me think this is a problem of IP adress that is different when switching from Wifi through router and Wifi through TP-link?

Here is the runout for my ipconfig /all and
Output for 'netsh wlan show all'

I have been having a lot of trouble with my wifi conection for a month or 2 now and ive just about had it. When i am playing a game, mostly world of tanks and wargame red dragon, my wifi will stop for about 30-60 seconds entirely. I check and it still says i am connected, but all programs that use the internet lose connection, not just the game. However, if i am connected to an Ethernet cable i have seamless conection however, being connected to an Ethernet cable is not always an option. I have anitvirus software (norton) and have removed several viruses.

A:USB internet connection on WIFI

Hi depakjan,

Glad to help, hope I can help you out. It sounds like you have a USB modem from a wireless provider such as Sprint, Verizon, Alltel, AT&T, or possibly Clear/Clearwire. Is that correct?

This is sometimes possible--depending on what software the wireless company gives you to work with. For instance, I have Clearwire here in Eau Claire, WI, and the Clearwire software actually disables the built-in functionality that Windows has that lets you bind ("bridge") two connections together, such as a USB modem and another connection, like your iPod touch.

Another thing to think about: I just signed up for Verizon mobile broadband Internet so I can have the Internet on the go. I found out something... Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, Alltel, and some other companies as well all limit your monthly usage on the Internet to 5GB. This is usually not a problem for one or two computers/devices connected to the Internet in a month for occasional or sometimes frequent web browsing. However, if you have an iPod touch, laptop, PSP, and more, all connected to that Internet connection, it will use that 5GB up pretty quick. Now, I don't know which company you're going through. If they don't have a limit, then great!!! Congratulations. But most companies are going to put that 5GB cap on your Internet. And, mind you, they seriously don't mind if you go over that 5GB!!! (You'll just have to pay a small fee of anywhere from $51.20 to $102.40 per MB that yo... Read more

Hey.
I'll jump straight to my problem to keep things short.
I seem unable to use my WiFi connectivity on my notebook. By this I mean that I cannot surf the internet or download anything using download managers <IDM and uTorrent>.
However, strange as it may be, Windows is able to connect to the microsoft update servers and carry on the Windows updates. So I guess it's not a driver problem.

I started experiencing problems with network connectivity a few days back, when my notebook would automatically disconnect from the network when my dad would connect on his notebook. I tried setting the IPv4 IP and DNS manually (thinking it might be a network conflict?) but that didn't solve the issue.

Anyways. Now I CAN connect to the internet while I'm surfing the net on dad's notebook. That is, it shows it is connected to the network and windows updates work fine. But the main problem still persists, dad's notebook switched on or not.

I haven't tried a wired connection yet - I don't have an ethernet cable. .__.

My drivers are up-to-date.

Extra info, might be unnecessary:
I've tried Google Chrome, Firefox 4, IE9.

Chrome says: Error 137 (net::ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED): Unknown error.

uTorrent says it has a "listen error" and asks me to change the listen port.

Hello all!

I have wanted to do connect to two different networks simultaneously from a long time but I couldn't figure it out.

I have Windows XP Professional and a WiFi adapter as well as an ethernet adapter. In fact, I can use both the networks. My PC catches a wireless network and it is directly connected to my LAN through an Ethernet cable. It is connected to a Linksys router.

Now, what I wanted to do is connect and use both networks simultaneously. I can connect to both networks at the same time. However, I find that it, by default, I can access internet through the LAN. I wanted to increase the possible bandwidth by using two networks.Morevover, I wanted to assign certain applications access to the wireless network only. These applications take up lot of bandwidth and this affects the internet connection/speed of all PCs connected to the LAN.

Is this possible? Can we increase internet speed by using 2 networks? and also can we assign some apps exclusive access to one particular network?

Thank you,in advance, for your help.
 

A:WiFi and LAN dual internet connection

No.

You cannot group two dis-similar network topologies into a single virtual pipe. What you are proposing is to create a link aggregated group. Also, setting up LAGs or Etherchannels will not enhance your internet speeds. For the general populus, you will never have an internet connection faster than your LAN.

I don't know how your network is set up or what your applications are doing. But if an application is causing LAN performance issues through out the network, you have a configuration/design problem.

Did not need the IPConfig info. Why are you also downloading updates from some unknown third party website? You most likely have downloading sketchy updates, that is causing your problems.

If you want to update software. Let the software update from the software manufacturer site that created the software. Using third party sites can allow you to infect your computer.

Every day or so, my wifi connection will no longer have internet access.  I have 2 HP Pavilion's and 1 Lenovo.  This is the only one that has this issue.  I've had the hard drive replaced and everything reinstalled for other reasons, but the issue with internet connectivity is still there.  If I hover over the WiFi icon in the lower right coner, it tells me right now the NETGEAR router I'm connected to and says Internet access below it.  When I've dropped internet access, the icon will have a yellow mark on it and hovering shows my NETGEAR router but it says no internet access. All I have to do is disconnect from my router and reconnect and I'll have internet access again, but that gets irritating. Could this be a hardware issue on my laptop and how do I determine that?  I'm still under warranty for another 2 months.

I have spent the last 4 days trying to get my WiFi to connect to the Internet and am ready to throw the computer and all its additional equipment out of the window!

Amongst a collection of other laptops and a desktop, running different systems - Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 - I have an old Acer Aspire 3000, running Windows XP Pro SP3. I use it mainly for midi file work and as a host for Visual Studio 2005 which I keep for maintenance of some programs, written many years ago, but still in use by some of my friends and for which I require frequent searches on the Internet. Just recently, for no apparent reason, the WiFi on this laptop suddenly stopped working. I have been using an Edimax EW-7318Usg wireless adapter, which has never given any trouble in the past, to connect with my home network through a router/modem supplied by my ISP.

Since every other computer, iPhone, iPad and Kindle connects to the same network and works perfectly, I have to assume that there is no problem with that router. Also, the problem laptop connects perfectly via the ethernet cable. It just won't work on WiFi alone!

I have checked my wireless connections setup, including TCP/IP, and can find no problem devices in Device manager.

I have searched for solutions on the internet and tried everything I can find - I have scanned my hard disk with Panda Antivirus; have downloaded and run MalwareBytes; I have tried changing the router channel; I have tried setting the ipconfig values. ... Read more

Hi everyone,
I'm having this problem with the WiFi (which I set up in 2011) at my grandfather's. I googled quite a bit for this problem and never found a solution. I've had the issues for quite some time, but as I usually only stayed there for a couple of days the last couple of times anyway, I didn't spend too much time fixing it. Now I'll be taking care of him for a week, and I'm here for a total of almost 2 weeks. The Internet connection is very poor - sometimes, web pages will load (but not as quickly as they should), sometimes they will load after about 1 minute, sometimes they will load about halfway and just not go any further, and sometimes page loading just gets stuck at the beginning. There is never any message such as "the server timed out" of "the server could not be found". The problem only happens on my computer (Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Tablet with Intel Advanced-N 6205) - I've seen at least 10 devices at various times using the Internet without any issues, including his laptop (thank goodness), and my computer doesn't have this issue with any other wifi network (the router is a Tenda single band Wireless-N W268R). I don't have the problem when I connect via ethernet, but the ethernet connection is only available upstairs, and I want to be able to stay downstairs when I need Internet on my computer, because he can barely make it up the stairs. I can also access the router settings etc. without any issues. Here is what I've tried (although it co... Read more

Hi trainman, Welcome to Seven forums.

Try to upgrade the router's and your NIC firmware.

1- Change wireless router encryption to WEP, rather than WPA. (I understand switching to WPA2 could also help with some compatibility issues...)

2- Uninstall router management software that came with router (e.g. D-Link router comes with a program called “Network Magic”. It might interfere with the Windows-7 wireless software that is already installed)

3- Change wireless adapter settings: In "Properties", unclick "TCP/IPv6"

4- Change wireless adapter settings: In "Properties/Configure", disabled Ad Hoc QoS Mode.

5- Change wireless adapter settings: In "Properties/Configure", changed Wireless Mode to 802.11g

6- In Control Panel/Power Options: Change advanced power settings... Wireless adapter settings: set to Maximum Performance

A:Internet Connection - WiFi & Wired?

If you are plugged in with a cable and connected wirelessly then Windows will default to the faster connection which is usually the wired one. As soon as you unplug the cable then the wireless connection will be the connection you are using. No problems with that at all.

i have 2 PC's & 1 Laptop. we'll call them PC, BC & LT
the problem is with LT.

PC is connected wirelessly. BC is wired to the router. LT is wireless with Atheros AR5004G built in.
i downloaded this http://pcpitstop.com/store/exterminate.asp on the LT. ran the scan and uninstalled it because it didn't remove the spyware.
after that the LT started acting up. i couldn't search for the word spyware, couldn't click the category 'anti-virus & spyware downloads' @ download.com & couldn't do anything with the word spyware, couldn't even install anti-spyware programs downloaded from the other 2 PC's. Everytime I tried, the browsers [IE, CrazyBrowser & Firefox] would close by themselves. Tried to run scans, but the scanners would close automatically also.

so we thought to do a factory restart restoring it from out of box state. finished that. now it doesn't want to connect to the internet. checked PC & BC to see if they were still able to connect. internet shows up fine except for LT. when LT is connected with the Ethernet cable, Internet is fine; webpages show up. but once disconnected, and using the wifi, internet doesn't show up.

The wifi is ON and I have set the settings on it. WiFi does read the router and says it's Excellent with all the bars lit green. but internet still doesn't show up.
It has worked just a couple of hours ago just before installing that program from PC Pitstop. ... Read more

Hello.

I have a problem here. Everytime I connect to my WiFi, it looks like this:

It says "Internet Access", but I can't access any website. What is going on here? The only solution I find this so far is to turn off the Wi-Fi adapter then turn it on again. It makes me tired. Is there any solution available?

Oh yeah, I've tried updating the driver, but it says "Your Adapter is up to date".

Adapter: Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter

Thanks.

Regards,
Akip

A:WiFi Connection is Good But Can't Connect to the Internet

Try to troubleshoot it ? In notification area, bottom right, right click the network icon.Click Diagnose in WiFi Status from image you posted. Might need reset adapter. Which browsers any, IE too, see you use Mozilla ? What exactly does it say in browsers ? Try reset browser too.

I have an MSI Wind netbook with Windows XP which is easy to conect to any wifi source in order to surf. However, while I recently was on holiday in Europe, the netbook showed that I was connected to a wifi source, but I couldn't access the web with it. The connection was sufficient to access Skype by not to surf. That happened no matter what source I logged on to. Now that I am home, I have the same problem. (but it worked perfectly before I left). The netbook connects no problem with wifi but I cannot surf, even though the connection is excellent. I fear I may have inadvertently messed up some of the software, though I can't think what I could have done to create this problem. Any suggestions?

I've got a wifi setup going with 2 computers hardlined in and working fine. I tried allowing access for my sister's laptop (all computers running Win7) and I'm able to connect to the network, however it's only "Limited Access" and does not connect to the Internet.

The network is password protected and WPA2. The wireless signal is on, and the Network Mode is on Mixed (not just G, N, or B only). My girlfriend's Mac was able to get onto the wifi network but the connection was acting odd by occasionally going in and out of connections at random times. The router is a LinkSys WRT160N.

Any ideas on what info I can provide you guys so that I can get this laptop up and running?

My desktop is connected to a wifi network and I need to bridge to another via ethernet. I have started by selecting each network and I bridge the 2 connections, creating a bridge, but the other computer still doesn't have internet connection.

Is this possible (I would think so) and if so, what have I done wrong?

I am using an HP Pavilion dv7 with a Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 network adapter trying to connect to the wifi router on campus from my dorm room. The routers are placed in the common areas, so I do not receive a very strong signal in my room, but it works good enough for my Android phone to connect just fine and have a reasonable speed. My laptop on the other hand, which works fine in the common areas with good signals, at times struggles to get internet. I have episodes where I can connect just fine and receive sufficient speed, but then at other times, I connect to the wifi but I cannot connect to the internet. I click Diagnose on the Wireless Network Connection Status, which runs and claims to find an error which is fixed by resetting the wireless adapter. Rarely does this actually fix the problem though. I am curious as to what could be causing this spotty internet connection with my laptop, when my phone always works just fine. Could it be something with HP's default WLAN manager? I read something about updating to Intel's wifi manager but I could not get the update to work with my Windows 7 64-bit OS. Does anyone have some insight that can make my laptop connect better?

We are currently at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, AL. On my laptop I can connect to their G band non-secure WiFi network with an "Excellent" signal strength. However, I get no internet access.

Other devices in our rig connect and get internet access just fine.

I've spent hours with Dell Pro-tech support to no avail. I've spent many days Googling this problem and have discovered that others experience the same issue on public WiFis, but I can find no posted solution.

Dell's last suggestion emailed to me was as follows: "I would suggest clearing the ip stack and flushing the dns. To do that open command prompt on your pc by clicking start and going to search at the bottom and type cmd, the cmd.exe should come up at the top but you have to RIGHTCLICK on cmd.exe and then click run as administrator. Hit yes on the next window and the run box should pop up when you hit that. This should bring up the black command screen. In this window type this in. ipconfig/release then hit enter. That should turn your ip to 0ís. Now in the next line type in ipconfig/flushdns and hit enter. After that type in netsh winsock reset and hit enter. After that exit the command prompt and then reboot your pc and try the connection again."

This did not resolve the problem either.

If anyone has experienced this strange phenomenon and found a solution, I would be forever grateful.

Thank you

DISCLAIMER: This is my first post so I apologize for any mistakes I make.

Hello all,

Yesterday morning upon waking up I discovered that the Wifi in my house was no longer working. It had worked fine the day before but stopped working completely overnight. At first I thought it might have been Charter Communications (My ISP) throttling the internet due to our bandwidth (My Mom watches a TON of Netflix). But the internet works fine with our two home desktops. It is the same connection but devices such as my iPhone 4, Nexus 7, iPad 3, iPhone 5, etc. are unable to get internet access. They are able to connect to the wifi and you are able to see the bars, but when trying to connect to the internet you get a network error message.

To try to fix this problem I ran measurmentlab (test for throttling), my virus scan (McAfee), and malwarebytes. I was unable to see any noticeable change in my problem.

I am hoping someone might know what I am doing wrong, but I haven't been able to find a thread that has helped me out thus far.

Thanks for reading, Nick

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Sorry for the late reply, have you resolved this issue? If not, start of with a Power Cycle if you have not done this yet.

Hi!
I have wire ADSL connection. I want share my internet connection with my phone (Android) using WiFi. I think its useless thing change my ADSL router. So are there any devise to distribute my Desktop computer internet connection via WiFi using USB port? Like Bluetooth dongle.

Thanks!

A:How to share computer Internet connection as WiFi?

I'm doing exactly that right now I have a Realtek USB WiFi 'dongle' (it says Dynamode 11N USB Adapter on it, but it uses Realtek stuff). The internet gets to my computer via my old phone, tethered via USB. It then goes through the computer and out the USB wireless adapter to my newer phone and iPod as WiFi.
I'm afraid I don't know the exact model of mine, but it looks just like this. (In Devices and Printers it shows up as RTL8188S WLAN Adapter). I just installed the drivers and bit of software, then in the software clicked on the 'Mode' tab, wher I could switch it from 'Station' to 'Access Point'. I could then choose which internet connection into the PC that it shared, set up a WEP key etc. and then share the connection throughout the house.
hope I helped

(I'm pretty sure the one in the link is the one I have, as it looks identical and they don't list any other similar items)

This is the issue: Two days ago I was going to add my flat mates new wifi canon printer. Firstly I used supplied installation cd, but it could not find it. After few attempts I took the cd out and was going to do it through Add New Printer/device wizard. While searching for the printer it cut off the internet, not the LAN connection just internet connection. Ive met up with this issue before and I thought to myself it'll be easy to fix it. But after checking all the setting resetting modem and all, changing SSID and password etc. it still did not work. Also I had found out all pcs in the house have got same problem. I tried to connect via ethernet cable, but still nothing. We are connected via sky wifi modem, there is ADSL filter in line, although there's no landline. I called sky that day they said, to my surpise, they know what fault it is and that they are going to send a technician. He came today chceked everything and left. I was not there but my flat mated called me and asked me for a new password I changed on tue. Guess what the same problem persists. He also mentioned that when the tech connected his "thing" (laptop or tablet I guess) it worked. If anyone could help please

A:Wifi Worked But No Internet Connection on My Laptop

Because you had McAfee installed you need to use the special uninstall procedure to remove it completely from your system per the link below.
http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS101331

You may have better luck using WPA2 security with AES encryption rather than the outdated, unsecure and slower WEP security. You can change these settings in the routers control panel.

You appear to have a valid IP here so most likely something is blocking or interfering with the connection.

You will also want to disable the Microsoft virtual adaptor by using the following commands at an elevated command prompt, typed or copy/paste them one at a time hitting enter after each one.


Code:
netsh wlan stop hostednetwork

Code:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow
