I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi: I see your notebook came with DOS. Did you install the Realtek bluetooth driver? If not, you need to. Windows installs a generic bluetooth driver which usually is not enough for the bluetooth to work. This package contains the driver installation package for the Realtek Bluetooth in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system. File name: sp73250.exe

Hey guys,

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, and today I tried connecting my bluetooth adapter, and connecting a bluetooth headset through it for use in applications.

I am using a Belkin Mini USB bluetooth adapter (model#: F8T016). When I connected the adapter, all drivers installed fine. (I didn't install any official ones, so I assume it is using 7's onboard drivers)

I have a Motorola H710 Bluetooth headset that I tried to connect through the adapter. It then gave me a "driver not found" error. From what I know, there isn't supposed to be an actual driver for this device because the adapter is supposed to handle everything. Windows recognizes the device (name etc.) But does not find a driver for it, so it does not show up so that I can select it as the default microphone.

Maybe I am doing something wrong, I connected it, went into Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Manage Audio Devices, but cannot select the device as the default mic.

Is there another way of doing it that I am not aware of? As a side note, this worked perfectly under XP. The adapter was able to configure the device successfully and I could select it as the default mic in for XP. But somehow I get a problem on 7.

I get the feeling I am missing something obvious here, can anyone help me out?

Thanks,

Alias50

I am unable to play any audio from my Galaxy S6 to my laptop, via bluetooth, despite both saying they are paired. When I hit play on my phone it just comes over its speaker and not the laptops.
I assume this is a version incompatibility, how can I fix it?

A:bluetooth connectivity

Hi: There are several different model bluetooth drivers on your notebook's support page. This is the one you need to install for the model wireless card your notebook has... This package contains the Broadcom Bluetooth driver for supported models that are running a supported operating system. Broadcom Bluetooth Driver is required to enable Broadcom Bluetooth devices. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp74501-75000/sp74988.exe If that is the driver you installed, then unfortunately, I would not know why the bluetooth isn't working.

i have already trying updating the drivers on my computer and i ave the latest. but if i cover my bluetooth or even move 2 feet away from it it crackles and disconnects sometimes. it was not doing that at first and i only tested it with my pc but yea. i tried 4 phones and they are flawless, i could go outside of my apartment and i would be connected on all 4 phones but not on my pc.

I have a Windows Vista 32 bit operating system on a HP 6112n Desktop. I purchased a dongle to connect a bluetooth headset to my system. It worked fine at first and now I can not access bluetooth at all. When I go to "Network and Sharing Center" and I open "Manage Network Connections, it shows that my wireless network is not connected or a Big Red X on the icon. The Bluetooth Icon appears on my system tray upon startup but it then disappears. I cannot open any default options. My bluetooth devices (2 bluetooth headsets) do not show up.

I purchased a second dongle. I deleted the first before installing the second but the second does not work either. It is a CSR. Under Device Manager -Bluetooth Radios: CSR Bluetooth Radio -Driver 3.0.0.159 shows working; Microsoft Enumerator- Driver 6.1.6002.18457 shows working.

Hello, I got a new WLAN Bluetooth driver recently and I've been having a few issues with some devices connected through it: Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse: Whenever I boot up my laptop, the mouse takes a minute or two to connect, so I'm restricted to my touchpad till then. The same thing will happen when I'm turning on bluetooth/the mouse. Sony MDR-XB950BT bluetooth headset: My laptop will only connect to the Hands free telephony device and leave the stereo device disconnected till I right-click and select "Connect". These are just little inconveniences that I'm hoping to see go away, I've tried updating my drivers and making sure that Bluetooth turns on at startup through my task manager and the services, I'm not sure what else to do. Thanks to anyone who helps P.S.

I have been experiencing bluetooth connectivity issues with my new X1 Yoga 3rd Gen, wondering if anyone else is seeing this.  Specifically I am using the thinkpad compact bluetooth keyboard and the thinkpad x1 wireless touch mouse (in bluetooth mode).  What happens is that every few hours, both devices lose connectivity suddenly.  When I go to the bluetooth settings on my X1, it shows both devices as "connected" -- but the light is blinking on the keyboard as if it is searching for a connection.  The only way I can get them back is by using the laptop trackpad to disable and re-enable bluetooth, at which time both devices connect again. I've tried a few different solutions, disabling power management, turning off the option that allows the computer to power down each of the bluetooth devices, and even reinstalling the intel bluetooth driver.  No luck. Has anyone experienced anything similar to this / have any suggestions on what could be the issue? Thanks in advance.

I have an older system that originally have Windows Vista 64bit, it never had any issues related to Vista OS but I upraded to Windows 7 to avoid any loss of support.

It worked prior to Windows 10 when I still had Win7, but I'm looking for drivers that will for sure work and as far as I can tell there's no way of enabling the feature within windows.....according to the BIOS it's enabled but it doesn't work.  I'm going  to keep looking for a way to get around the OS but I'm posting here too because I'm thinking others have had the same problems.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Chris

Brand new spectre x360. It's a beautiful machine except for the wireless. I'll itemize the issues that I'm having with the laptop. - Got the laptop and after 3 weeks all of a sudden it decided not to connect to my home wireless network.  I absoluty have no clue why this is happening. It seems to happen randomly. I'm working alone for 3 to 4 days and one morning it just decides not to connect. I got my desktop, phone and tablet all able to connect without any problems. - The second issue is with the bluetooth. As soon as I connect my sony bluetooth headphones the wireless internet connection drops. The onyl way to reconnect to the internet is to disconnect the bluetooth headphones. So I can either have wireless internet or the bluetooth headphones but not both at the same time. - The last problem is that through out the day the wireless connection randomly drops. Try loading a webpage and the browser gives me a connection error but the laptop says it's connected. Only after I disconnect and reconnect the laptop that I can start browsing again. I've uninstalled and reinstalled both the hp and intel drivers.

I have a Sony STR-DN1030 AV receiver with Bluetooth. I've been working on this issue on and off for 6 months now. The problem was : I would try pairing the computer to the receiver for audio and windows would say paired, but would not connect. I tried un-pairing and pairing , updating drivers, all kinds of forums.  Today I got the computer to connect.. I found a Bluetooth software in the add / remove programs list in the windows control panel. I figured it couldn't get any worse so i went ahead and uninstalled it and tried to connect. It connected right away. I believe that the dell manufactured software for Bluetooth was in conflict with another software ; possibly the windows software that controls Bluetooth devices. I haven't noticed that anything else has bee affected yet.

Opps, maybe not so unique since I just noticed an ENTIRE forum for browsers...perhaps moving this is appropriate...if so, please do. I will be reading up in there.


Its interesting because I can't find any mention of it anywhere on this site. Specifically browser connectivity is lost after a little while (guessing 7 minutes, though it may be a number of browser pages displayed trigger i went 3 hrs today) after I start browsing. If I don't start a browser, the death clock doesn't begin until I start browsing. Now, at the same time, all shares, the other machines on the network, work fine. Also if I am playing an online game, I will not have any issues. Just IE and firefox can't display pages and other programs (like updates of AVG) are soon to follow.

***Important to note this is new, the network was fine for over a week before this started a couple days ago.

I notice, when it works, net info states Homegroup - ready to connect (I am using a workgroup to connect to other machines) but last night, during a browser outage it said it was connected. I notice now it calls my workgroup a homegroup (I think is used to say workgroup)

(This problem may have started around when I tried to synchronise a folder to "always available offline", but there are other things that were done in that period of time unfortuately, all have since been undone.

Hey all,

I'm finally posting here after having read around on the site before and gotten good info.

I set up a wireless home network between two computers (a laptop and a tablet) a few months ago. The laptop is the "base" computer and the table has a wireless receiver; the router is a DLink 524.

I never had any connectivity issues (internet) until last week on the laptop when my free version of Zonealarm started acting screwy and not displaying any info when I would open the program up. I updated the version, and since then cannot use the internet while Zonealarm is running. I'm confused, though, because the tablet has Zonealarm and has no problems accessing the internet at all. DLink tech support tells me that the problem is in the configuration of Zonealarm, and that I should contact them, but I'm running the freebie version and so don't anticipate getting much help there.

Is this an issue of ports (opening/forwarding)? If so, I have no experience in that and would appreciate if someone could take a second to let me know what they think should be done. I'm willing to just scrap Zonealarm and try something that works better with the router if need be, but I'm willing to bet someone who knows what they're doing could fix this easily, and that the problem is with me.

Thanks so much,

Jason
 

A:Odd connectivity issue

Go into the router and turn off the blocking of computers not running ZA. I'm not sure if this is the problem but I do know that I've seen such as problem in DLink routers before because some models now have a feature(some added with firmware update) which will allow you to configure the router with ZA so they don't interfere with eachother, it aslo has a feature which will let you block computers not running ZA so that you don't have unprotected machines on the network. While this is a good idea in theory, it also causes problems for people who don't know it is there.

BTW, the setup you mention where one laptop is "base" as you call it, is incorrect. When using a router to share your internet, the router itself is the server and all computers are the clients. This misconception causes a lot of confusion and sometimes makes it difficult to diagnose a problem when you call one machine a "base" or "server" when it is not.

Hello all,

I am new here but hoping still that someone might have the answer to an ongoing issue within our network.

I am dealing with a large network (large in the physical size not necessarily how many PCs connected). There are 4 different buildings that connect with a fiber optical connection. Each building has it's own internet source. I deal with two of these buildings. The connection runs underground. When I link our two buildings, the networked PCs communicate but the internet connection is lost.

I am not sure if the other buildings have these connection issues but I've noticed that at one end it looks like an adapter is connecting the fiber optical possible to a cat5 looking jack. Is it possible that that's the issue?

Have you heard of this before. I happens to be a POS system that we need working between the two buildings. So apart from one or two office computers on the network that needs internet we need it for processing credit cards as well.

Any help will do. Sorry if I wasn't all that specific or clear... I'm still new at this stuff.

Thanks!

When I first open the program, the page is blank, and the status bar (bottom of the IE window) briefly flashes "Detecting proxy settings" and then sits at "Connecting to site 74.125.93.104" for several minutes before displaying the typical "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" screen.

In dealing with the problem, I've found that whenever I get the "Connecting to site" message in the status bar, I immediately close IE, then reopen it. Sometimes the first time I do this results in Google (homepage) loading, but most of the time I must repeat this proces several times (up to about 10) before IE loads Google.

When already working properly, I've noticed that IE has no problems opening links in new windows or tabs. Does anyone have an idea of what could be causing this problem?

Relevant Information:

Windows XP Service Pack 3
IE version 7.0.5730.11

Please let me know if additional information is required, and I will do my best to provide it. Thanks for reading.

Using Geo Spider, 74.125.93.104 = Google.

Are you using something like the Google Toolbar? Try using Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it. If this solves your problem, you can try reinstalling Google Toolbar.

Hi,
I am currently trouble shooting a network problem for a medium size company, aprox 250 users. The issue is as follows:
A connectivity problem occurs on random clients which leaves them with an ip address received from DHCP server but the client only has connectivity with its own vlan. (DHCP server on different VLAN) The switch has ip helper set up so the communication to get an ip address is being done via the switch and on to the DHCP server.(The primary function of IP helper) The client can't ping anything outside its own VLAN.
Our only work around is to assign a static DHCP ip address on the DHCP server using the MAC address of the client. Issue an ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew on the affected client to get the assigned static DHCP address and full connectivity is restored.
There is a mix of Cisco and 3com switches, mostly Cisco with a Cisco 3750 multi layer switch at the heart of the network.
I have analysed the configuration of the devices and everything looks good.
I know its hard to diagnose from this brief description but any similar problems experienced and solutions discovered are appreciated.
Thanks

I have a ISA server which i use to connect all my systems to the internet. But there are times when i want direct access to the Internet without any firewall in between ( i know its not safe). For that i connect my DSL modem to an 8 port switch and from there to two of my systems and it works perfectly fine, i can browse...download and play games etc. But when i connect a third system...i cant connect to the internet although i can access systems connected to the switch.
I checked up DNS, IP and everything....still no good.

Any help would be appreciated.

Good morning everyone,

slowly but steadily I am nearing the edge of sanity. I am not overly technically gifted and, to my dismay, certain members of the WoTC support staff aren't, either. I'm not sure I actually expect a solution as much as I hope for an explanation of an issue that's presented itself to me.

The issue is as follows: One particular application (namely Magic the Gathering Arena (yes, I am aware that there's a game subforum, but this really is a networking issue - promise!)) refuses to stay connected to the host for any amount of time. In these trying times (being a teacher and confined to my home desk due to Corona) I spend way too much time on online games, none of which are giving me any sort of grief. I'm on a gigabit fiber connection that's, similarly, never acted up on me before. But for some reason I have not been able to maintain a connection to the MtGA host for longer than about 2 minutes in the past 3 days (never had an issue with the game before). I contacted their support who, as they usually do, presented me with a list of off-the-shelf solutions. Suffice it to say, none of them worked, except for the last one.

A VPN. I'm in Germany and the CSR suggested I try a US-based VPN and this fixed it. I don't plan on making use of a VPN as a long-term solution, but at least I get to scratch the itch in the meantime, right? Well, I wrote back to the support who said, and I quote:

"Thank you very much for work... Read more

Hi Everyone.
I have a Netgear JFS516 switch which is directly connected to the D-link DES-3026 switch.The problem is up-link lED on netgear switch keeps blinking for 1 minute and then goes off, resulting no network connectivity on the part of Netgear JFS516 switch.

These 2 switches connected with straight cable and I crimped the cable on both side but the problem still persists.
 

A:Connectivity Issue

Did you test the cable with a cable tester? Sounds like a cable issue or perhaps a bad switch. Did you take the switch close to the other switch and connect it with a short patch cable as a test?

Hope someone out there has come across this... Bellsouth (DSL) using a Westel Modem directly connected to the Computer (ethernet), no switch, hubs, etc.... All connected to a UPS which I turn off nightly. When you first turn it all on, cannot connect to Internet, E-mail, etc... The DSL Modem shows steady power light, steady sync light and ethernet light flickers as it is working, but nada... disabled Firewall (Zone alarm) but nothing. Cannot ping or get to the outside. Most of the time, after a reboot it will then work as it should. No viruses on the computer, all updates are done (Windows 2000 Pro, SP4, IE6 with all updates, etc). It is becoming frustrating to say the least, and takes nearly as long as my dial up connection did just to get online... I contacted Bellsouth who tries to claim it is a hardware issue which I do not agree with... I changed the DSL modem to it is always on, independent of the computer and that didnot help... Next I am going to try a different Ethernet card... All dsl modem updates are done as well... Has anyone else had this problem? Please advise.. thanks
