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.)

I connected to HTC Aria Wifi Hotspot and on the task bar it shows full signal.

On the network and sharing center, there was a 'RED CROSS' although it said Access Type : Internet.

After I connected to the Wifi, there wasn't a red cross, it shows up only after I start browsing (for eg i browse on Google), then the red cross shows up but I was still able to browse (only on Google).

If I browsed wikipedia, then after the red cross shows up, I am only able to browse on wikipedia but not other sites.. Can anyone help?

EDIT: My comp is Acer Aspire 4745G, windows 7 home premium on 64-bit Operating System, tried window troubleshooter but no problem was found

A:Wifi shows connected with full signal but unable to surf the internet

Hello,

It says that you are copnnected to two networks. Disable your other network connection or unplug the cable if you are connected via a wire. It probably because it is getting confused about how to access the internet.

If the above fails:
Click Start>Run> type 'cmd'
In the command prompt type 'ipconfig /all'

Post the information on here.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

I have read through a lot of threads on here and tried different fixes and so far nothing has worked.

I have disabled the ISATAP Adapter #4 as I thought that was an issue....still not working
I have deleted all of my networks and tried to reconnect....still not working.
I have tried the ipconfig/all command .... still not working.
I have checked and all drivers are up to date.
I have reset my router to make sure it wasn't an issue with that.

It either will connect with "local access only" or it will connect for maybe 15 seconds and then the connection is gone, or says it cannot connect because it is not getting an answer from my router.

When I search for a network, it shows my network with full signal strength.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with a Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN mini-card
Running Vista 32bit.
What has changed...

I recently updated my desktop to Windows 7 (not sure if this could effect the Wifi)
Recently switched to Qwest fiber optic internet (but a tech came out and set it up, and everything was working fine until today)

I'm lost now, I am not sure what to do, and my wife needs this computer to be able to connect to Wifi so she can work from home.

I'm going to try and explain this as best as possible. I have a wireless camera system that is connected to a wifi router, the purpose of this is to give the wireless camera a connection point to the dvr. There is no internet signal to this router. I want to be able to view my cameras over an internet connection, so I can use my mobile device to view them wherever I want.

An ethernet cable needs to be plugged directly into the dvr in order to allow it to connect to the internet, problem is I am using a wifi signal from a business next to mine and have no way of doing so. Is there a way for me to connect my wifi connected laptop to the router via an ethernet cable into the WAN port, and use one of the LAN ports to connect to the dvr while being able to send the signal to the dvr allowing it to connect to the internet?

Please let me know if I need to give more information on what I'm trying to accomplish. Your answers are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hello, I just noticed that my wifi signal bars stay at full bars and does not change even if the signal is truly low. I realized this only recently when I transferred to our bedroom which supposedly had the worst signal in the house, but the signal bar still stays at full. Whenever I click on it, the real signal will appear and does not currently match the one shown in the system tray icons.

Note:
My current wireless network adapter is Intel Dual Band Wireless AC-7265
Updated to Windows 10 Anniversary Update on August 17, 2016

Solutions I've tried but failed to fix it:
1. Uninstalling the wireless network adapter, restarting PC and scanning for hardware changes, although it did show the true signal for a second then went to full bars
2. Updating the wireless network adapter to no success in fixing it. Also tried rolling back the driver to the original one.
3. Turning Network system tray icons on and off in the windows 10 settings

And BEFORE doing that, I was also trying to fix various problems that also came with my laptop.

1. Updated Intel HD Graphics 530 and Nvidia drivers which seemingly fixed my BSOD problems that never again happened since then.
2. Updated my BIOS to the latest which fixed black screen/restarting problems when laptop wakes up from sleep.

A:Wifi Signal always at full bars - not matching real signal

You do not need to scribble out the names on that screenshot, since it will do nothing for any of us. That signal graphic is just like on a cellphone. It does not mean anything. There are a lot of factors why you can have great radio signal, but have interference causing a blackout or outage. If you want to see a snapshot of all signals your wifi adapter is seeing, open up a Command Window as administrator and type it 'netsh wlan show all'.

Can anyone recommend a simple and inexpensive way to boost the WiFi reception signal strength of a Laptop.

When I am away from the office I often use WiFi Hotspots to connect to the Internet. Some Hotspots are very good and provide a good signal, but the strength of other Hotspot signals is often very poor. If you check the signal strength it is often so weak that connection is not possible or frequently drops out.

If possible I would prefer not to change the WiFi card in the Laptop but rather use something like an antenna to boost the received signal.

I just got a new Pavilion laptop  yesterday and so far I like it except for one thing. When I'm working in my home office, I hook the laptop up to two monitors, a keyboard, etc. I found out through the forums that the wifi antennae is in the lid and when the lid is closed my wifi signal degrades so much my computer is basically useless. Is there a way I can boost the signal with the lid closed? Would an extra antennae help? This is a pretty ridiculous antennae design for people who use their laptops in home offices hooked up to monitors.

I have a window's 8 laptop. It is about a year old. A few months ago it just suddenly stopped getting a strong wifi signal in my room. The wireless router is in the other room. I assumed that it was just our router, a belkin, and started using an ethernet cable rather then replace it. However, I am visiting my girlfriend and the router is in her room. I took my laptop to the other room and suddenly I only have one bar of connection and nothing will load, like it does at my house. Even sitting right next to the modem get 3 to 4 bar signal strength. I have no idea what to do. I have ran virus checks and malware checks. Nothing turned up. I tried checking to see if my wireless driver needed to be updated but it says that it's up to date and functioning properly, which clearly it isn't.

I'm using a new Asus AC68U router. My home network includes, among other items, my desktop and my laptop (a Dell XPS 15). The laptop occasionally drops the wifi on the 2.4 GHz band. Everything else on the network handles both bands fine. The laptop has been holding well on the 5Ghz band. How do I determine with the 2.4 Ghz band if the problem is the laptop, the router--or both? How do I diagnose this problem? I should mention that all the laptop and Asus drivers are up to date. Thanks.

I have to replace my Sony VAIO that ran Windowns 7 because of the graphic card kicked the bucket. This new Dell laptop "supposed" to be better and faster but there's one problem - it keeps dropping wifi signals.

The Sony with win 7 did drop signals but it was more like a once or twice a day sort of thing. This one, it drops signals every few minutes. Sometimes it comes back on its own in matter of seconds, other times, I have to troubleshoot to bring it back, while the odd times, I just have to sit tight to wait for it to miraculously recover. ***In fact, I finished typing my post a minute ago and when I hit "submit" the wifi dropped and now I am typing a second time.***

We have other wireless devices in the house but none of them has the same issue. The desktop also runs win 10 but it's wired to the network so never a problem.

I don't know much about computers but one thing I know is that nothing else has changed other than a new laptop with a different OS. Is dropping signals a common problem with win 10 or should I blame my computer?

I tried updating several drivers as well as the BIOS but it just keeps freezing. I edit youtube videos, as well as write and author books and it's really frustrating when I am working on a project and I look away for a split second and the **bleep** thing has frozen. It freezes up in a way where I can't even it CRTL ALT DELETE to go into taskmaster, everything is frozen. The mouse, the screen, the keyboard won't work, I have to completely shut it off and therefore lose a lot of work.It even freezes up when I restart it, as soon as my desktop opens it will freeze and I have to restart again. I am this close to throwing the thing across the room.Another thing is the wifi signal keeps dropping, I updated the drivers and I have no idea where to go from here. It will show my router is available but no be connected to it, and when I try to connect it says connection not available. And it's not just my router, it's any other place I go to and try to use the WiFi. I am beyond frustrated.

I use road runner cable internet from time warner. I have a linksys wrt54g wireless router that was purchased many years ago. In our apartment, we have 3 computers. One is a desktop. The other 2 is laptops. One of the laptops we use is in a room very far from my room where the router and desktop computer is located at. The connection for the wireless is pretty bad so you have to go to the living room right next to it to get a better connection.
At first i thought i fixed this problem by upgrading the firmware as i have never did this before ever. I upgraded it to firmware version 4.21.5 for the linksys router. At first it seemed like the signal got better from that room but now its as bad as it was before.
My question is what could be the problem? I put my router on top of my desktop computer so it wouldn't be on the table where so many things could block it. Thus its at the highest point i could put the router in my room.
So i tried something different. Well i then brang my laptop to that room and went on the same site as the other computer and went to load the same streaming videos. My laptop however... the connection was faster than the other laptop in that room which is far away from where the desktop/router is at. Basically you can't even stream a video in that room most of the time but my laptop could.
Does that mean that my router isn't the problem since the wireless signal works fine for my laptop there whereas the inspiron 15r goes much slower... Read more

A:Wifi Signal Not Strong Enough- Router or Laptop Problem?

Someone suggested to take the router out of my room and bring it to the living room so it would be closer to that laptop.

I'm not sure what its called but basically it is connected to these wires on the top in my hallway. Does anyone know what that is called?

Someone suggested i could buy a usb wireless adapter like this

http://www.amazon.com/Medialink--15...&qid=1362007920&sr=1-1&keywords=wireless+card
Does that mean plugging this into that computer possibly could make the connection stronger in that room? I'm thinking that the reason has to be because that laptops wireless card isn't strong like mine which is why? But would buying this solve the problem?

Someone said buy another router because my router is very old and to get an N router. Should i do this instead? The thing is i'm thinking its not the router fault as my wireless is fine with my laptop in that room. thoughts on this? And if i should do this, can someone recommend me a wireless router that has good range? There are soo many routers on amazon.com with good/bad reviews and it seems like the good reviews they have, there are tons of bad ones as well.
Someone said my other option would be to buy some wireless extender. I checked amazon but aren't these basically wireless router with an extender?

Hi

For the last three days, my laptop (Acer Aspire V5-573G, Windows 8.1 64 bit) can't connect to our house's wifi, which I have been able to connect to for years. I am in a basement flat, while the router is one floor above me. Other laptops, tablets and phones in the same basement flat have no issues connecting to the wifi. The wifi shows up in my available networks, full signal and all, but I can't connect to it.

What I have tried:
- Restart PC
- Restart router and modem (both quick reset and factory reset)
- Run the built in diagnostics tool (yields different results: IP settings not configured properly, something wrong with my network card etc., so I tried the fixes below to overcome these findings)
- Deactivate and reactivate network card
- Uninstall and reinstall network card
- "Fix" my wifi application/program/something (Atheros Qualcomm...) through "uninstall programs"
- ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew
- flushdns
- System restore to time when internet worked (unsuccessful because iirc something allegedly was wrong with my C drive, ran chkdsk /r, re-ran restore, still no success)
- Set a static IP, gateway, DNS etc.
- Virus and malware scan with MalwareBytes (iirc it found 4 files/folders, which it quaranteened)

Sony Vaio Laptop
Running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit, Service Pack 1

First let me say that I LOVE Bleeping Computer and have researched many topics over the years, but have never needed to post because I always have been able to find my answers by reading. This is my first real shout out for help, and any that you guys can give will really be appreciated.

My Netgear router logs have been showing an unknown mac address connecting ever since I set it up a few months ago (when we moved in to a new home). I'm running WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] security. I originally thought maybe one of my neighbors was sniffing/hacking, so I set up MAC filtering for the WiFi. The logs now constantly (every 4-15 minutes with long breaks occasionally) show the MAC being "denied access" to the router. I thought I was done, but have been annoyed that the connection attempts continue even after months of blocked access. Then the plot thickened...

I ended up changing my WiFi password just to beef up security a little. The router logs then showed my X-Box being "rejected" due to incorrect security (since it had not been changed to the new pw). It occurred to me that the router logs actually differentiated between incorrect security and denial of access... which meant that the attempting hack actually HAS the security password even though I'm running WPA2. To verify my problem, I changed the security password again and only allowed two laptops access to the router.... Read more

A:Router Logs Show an Extra/UNKNOWN WiFi MAC Address - Coming from a KNOWN Laptop

Re: "My Netgear router logs have been showing an unknown mac address connecting"
How do you know it is a WI-FI address (Thread title says it's Wi-Fi)?
Hey, how about quoting the exact message Netgear puts in the log.
Yes, I know Netgear's logs are dreadful. They don't show port nor protocol involved, still seeing an exact message might help.

There is such a thing as MAC address spoofing, but whether it plays a role here, I can't tell.

Is it only in the log or does it show up in the wired or wireless section of Active Device list?

I don't know why you suspect your laptop since you're saying these are inbound attempts.

Are those connection attempts occuring when the Lexmark printer is off or totally disconnected from the router?

If the data in the log matches your printer's MAC address, than my guess is normal activity of the printer announcing its presence on the network. And since it's not a wi-fi printer, your MAC filtering doesn't seem relevant.

If MAC is all you see in the log, and no IP, perhaps it's trying to get an IP from the router - do you have a LAN range of IPs setup that might be too narrow for all your gear?

Are you able to print?

Sorry for no help, but I thought I'd ask for some clarifications to this confusing story.

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?

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?

Can you connect Sony laptop to another wifi router succesfully?

When connected to (failing) wifi (from command prompt):


Code:
ipconfig/all>ip.txt
route print>route.txt
Post ip.txt and route.txt
You may delete both files afterwards

Laptop got a virus and I used system restore. When the computer came back up, it would not connect to the internet. It is a wireless signal and the computer recognizes the signal is there, but it won't connect. The connection box says "Connections are available". It also says "Not connected" and "Limited access". How can I get this fixed?

A:Wifi signal is there but won't connect to the internet

and welcome to the Forum

What exactly hapens when you try to connect? . .

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


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

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

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.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Fr... Read more

The signal appears excellent, however the internet doesn't work. Well, a few details. The router is in the basement, 3 floors up is the computer receiving the signal. I have an extender on the second floor that's 54mbps, however on the computer it says "Excellent 108Mbps" or something of the like. I'm not entirely sure what's going on, another user can connect to the wifi on the network. Any ideas?

Hi there!


So I have begun to encounter this super weird problem since the past two days.

I have a wireless router that I use to connect three devices to the internet. Two laptops and a phone. I've had the same internet connection for the past 1.5 years and everything has worked just fine.

Off lately, my laptop won't connect to the internet only in my room. Everywhere else, it works just fine. But the minute I enter my room, the connection changes to 'Unidentified network' or 'No internet access'. I tried bringing the other laptop in my room and that works perfectly.
What could be the reason for this?

I have been scouring forums on the internet, but couldn't find any resolution.
I tried re-installing my wireless drivers but that didn't help. Tried troubleshooting and the problem couldn't be fixed.

Please help!

Please help. I know very little about computers. Please excuse me if I explain things wrong and use incorrect terminology.

I hadn't used my laptop for a while, and yesterday, it didn't come on when I tried to turn it on. I ended up taking out the battery, then holding down the power button for 30 seconds. The laptop worked fine after that, and I was able to access the Internet. When I went to shut it down, it said that it had updates to install, so I told it to install the updates and shut off when it was done.

When I started it up today, it seemed slow to get to the Toshiba screen. It looked liked it was still installing updates, which I found odd because it had shut itself down yesterday after installing all of them (I thought). I shut it down again after the updates (or whatever that was) had completed, and I was able to access one site very briefly. However, now I can't access the Internet at all. The Internet Explorer page comes up for a few seconds and then closes again to the Toshiba page. When I check my connection, it says that the Wifi is connected. I can't figure out why I can't access the Internet. Please help.

Edited to add that I'm using Windows 8. Also, I just tried to scan with Norton, but the scan won't work.

Hello all,

I use an Acer Aspire V7 581PG which is around 3 years old and had constant WiFi problems, though manageable until now.

I usually use a Huawei O2 dongle for work because my home WiFi doesn't reach to my studio.

Its a USB dongle that I leave plugged in most of the time, but when I go downstairs it connects to our home WiFi.

Earlier I was downstairs using the home WiFi, shut the lid, and later took it upstairs to connect to the dongle, but now I am getting 'secured, no internet' when attempting to connect.
I have attempted to connect to my Huawei dongle, my home Sky Router WiFi, my phone hotspot, hardwiring ethernet to the Sky Router and at another house's BT Homehub 5 and the issue is still the same.

Trying to fix it I have attempted:

Uninstalled the WiFi adapter and restarted with scan for hardware changes. (Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222)Netsh commands (with a restart following)ip config releaseip config start (didn't work at all)ip config stop (when doing this it failed and mentioned something about no media connected?)Disabling Bluetooth modules

Entering a static iPv4 address and Google DNS addresses show 'Connected - Secured' but no pages load nor does pinging microsoft.com (4 packets sent, 0 received, 100% loss)

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

It will at first tell me access is restricted then I have lost connection completely and must click and re connect...so far it's been 4 times in the last hour while other days I stay connected no problem.

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply
Note: you will see entries named Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: we dont need to see that information - JUST the infomation above those entries

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

Hi everybody!

I would be happy if anybody could help me solve my network connection problems. I am trying to connect my laptop to internet via wireless router and modem. It successfully connected to router there is no internet access. I have tried wire connection directly to the modem, and it worked. I also know the wireless router is working fine due to we have phones that wirelessly connected to the router, and they are also getting internet access.

Please help!

A:Laptop wifi connected to router but no internet access

I would firstly, double check security and you typed your passkey in right.. sounds dumb but has fixed many peoples errors. Also make sure you didn't block your MAC Adrees.

If still no go, turn off the router security then try to connect.

If no go try updating the drivers.

If still no go then we got issues.

hi all, im having this weird problem for 5 days now, its really driving me crazy, so i have an alienware laptop, never had any problem before, this problem only happend about 5 days ago, everytime i start my laptop the network works fine, but after about 15 mins, the wifi automatically disconnects although the signal indicates excellent, i cannot browse internet or run anything that is connected to network, only by restarting my laptop can fix this; one thing funny about this is that if i open any sort of web page before this problem occurs, i can still browse that certain web page even after this problem occurs; ive tried to flush dns, reset net interface, obtain ip address manually, none of them worked, so here im hoping that somebody on this forum can help me out.

A:wifi no internet access with excellent signal

I would think about resetting the router if you haven't done so already. After resetting the router go through the wireless settings again, set your SSID, password and also use WPA2 security with AES encryption.

HI all, I have a lenovo laptop that is almost exactly a year old and it WILL NOT stay connected to the internet neither by wifi nor LAN. It will connect sometimes for 10 mins, sometimes for ten seconds. I can turn the computer off, restart it, close all other programs, diagnose connection, disable and restart adapters, nothing works for very long. I dont believe it is the internet as my Xbox, my desktop and my phone all connect fine through both wireless and wired connections. There are also two other laptops on the house that connect just fine (not windows 7 machines tho) my desktop is also windows 7 and sporadically has this problem as well. I have tried going to barnes and noble and starbucks to try different internet and still the same thing happens. Very Frustrating, please help if you can

I need to amplify the signal of wireless internet. I heard about access points, but I don't really know what to look for. Something that will receive a wireless signal, then boost it back out. Any ideas for a cheap/quality way to do this? email is "[email protected]"
 

A:Weak wifi internet signal. Access points?

access point/router/gateway/switches are all ways to tie multiple computers together to share files/internet.

distance, walls/construcion, upstairs/downstairs, how strong the signal is, how many pc's/laptops, all play a part in how well it works as you're sharing the same bandwidth.

i keep it to about 100 ft or less from the signal to the pc/laptop.

i live above a bar, and our Wifi Modem/Router is downstairs. Sometimes the signal would get weak up in my apartment, but one night an employee was messing around unplugging things and he did something to one of the machines in the process and knocked out the internet. In an attempt to get it running again, he did a number of things, including setting up multiple networks and apparently somehow got it broadcasting multiple signals.

We had a public network named "Mojos" and now there is a second signal, a Private network called "Mojos 2" - and now it seems like the router has schizophrenia; it keeps switching between the two signals. I have searched an cannot find a solution, and i need the internet for my business so this is hurting me severely. i need to eliminate the second signal.
