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.)

When i was using windows 8 the wifi was good and would never get disrupted.But i updated to windows 8.1 and now when am downloading something the wifi gets disconnected and wont show the network even if the router is on and my phone is still connected to it.I have to toggle the wifi on and off for some 6-7 times and then toggle airplane mode on and off for 3-4 times to get it to discover the network.Is this because of the adapter or driver and my laptop has a ralink wifi adapter.What should i do?Thanks

I upgraded my friends HP laptop to Windows 10. The issue now is I can't enable Wifi. The card is recognized correctly in Device manager and no issues is found with it. It looks like it is fine. However in the Network Settings WLAN is set to "Off" and when I try to turn it on it always jumps right back to off. eg. I can't enable it.

HP is now help as they clearly state any laptop bought prior to specific date in 2013 will not get any driver updates from their side for windows 10. (Guys, never buy HP again please...). And updating through device manager only tells me it's the newest driver available.

The Wifi card i Broadcom 4313GN card. I searched for win 10 drivers but did not find anything.They only offer linux drivers on their homepage...

So can anyone either provide a solution to the issue or link to a win 1' driver for this wifi card?

A:Dreaded Win10 WiFi Issue: Can't enable WiFi after Upgrade

I had a similar issue were I was stuck in Aeroplane mode on a cleanly installed W10. Turned out I had to uninstall it from the HID's in Device manager. It's worth checking that he's not stuck in it too. Search for drivers in Windows 7, from the HP website and you'll most likely resolve the issue.

I have issues connecting my Laptop to the Wifi router in my house, however, there are no issues connecting to other routers? You would therefore assume that the issue lies with the router at my house. However, every other device and laptop connects to the router at my house with no issues at all. So it seems to be specific to the combination of my laptop and the router at my house. I have been having these issues ever since I downloaded Windows 10. I fixed it initially by downloading an old driver for the Wifi on my laptop. This fix lasted for about 3 months but since the latest windows update, the issue has come back. The issue is intermittent wifi where it shows I am connected to the Wifi but then the internet doesn't work. It says "DNS probe cannot be found" when running troubleshooter and then it resets the wifi on my laptop. This can temporalily fix it, sometimes for 2 seconds. Sometimes for 2 hours. But then the issue comes back. Does anyone have any clue what the issue might be or how I might fix it? Sometimes, when I run the troubleshooter, it says that I have missing protocols. But then this doesn't happen every time. I have tried a variety of fixes that I have read up on in forums but none seem to work permantly. One thing I haven't tried is a clean install of windows 10 which is something I am very reluctant to do and also, have my doubts as to whether it would actually resolve the issue.
Many thanks,
Joe

A:Wifi issue specific to my laptop and home wifi

It all depends on location, location, location. Some Gateways are just garbage. If you are not getting a strong enough signal, get an Access Point. Also you need to make sure that you are not on a congested channel, which is usually Channels 6 & 11 for 2.4 Ghz units.

I have a 1. Year old HP pavilion g6 laptop with AMD APU. since, about a month back, my wifi has been showing problems. The laptop would randomly, at times, disconnect from the wifi and show no wifi networks. Sometimes it would reconnect automatically and at other times it won't. I'd have to either restart or reset the network adapter to get connected again. Also, if I change some router settings like SSID or channel it's broadcasting on or the wifi type (b/g/n) it gets reconnected
I know it is not a problem with my router as I havE other devices on the network and they work fine. I have tried updating and reinstalling all drivers, updated bios, changed the power management settings. I also read that in some network card the Bluetooth causes problems so I even disabled Bluetooth via device manager but still the problem occurs. It doesn't occur frequently but maybe once every 5-6hrs.(no fixed interval, sometimes it happens just after switching on)

Hey Prathamesh
You could try restoring your PC to a point in time where you pc did not do this using system restore and see if this solves your problem.

Hi atulrohatgi , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
You may try to check on device manager , click on the + sign in network adapter and right click on the wireless card for the properties. 
 
Under power management tab , uncheck box saying "Allow the computer toturn off device to save power" , navigate on the advance tab , set highest on roaming aggressiveness / roaming tendency .
Restart and check how it goes.

Internet in my PC would get disconnected, like not fully disconnected but there will be a /!\ yellow exclamation on the internet icon, not a red X. WiFi on other devices would be working. I use a cable to connect router to PC.

This would happen a few times a day or sometimes it doesn't happen in a day. I would take out the cable from the WiFi router and plug it back and the internet will then work fine.

Why does this happen?

The Router is Tenda N301.

Still the same problem
2. I'm due to format and re-install OS

Hi, I have a Toshiba laptop (p-750) and a new TP-link TL-WR1043ND router.
The router works fine with my smartphone and Sony PlayStation but my laptop is getting disconnected all the time.

HELP.....

Thanks guys.
 

A:My Toshiba laptop gets disconnected from wifi

how is your laptop connected to the router - wireless or cable
how often are you getting disconnected

we need to see some further information - quite a long post - but some simple tests, just the explanation is long

Is this the only PC that disconnects - do other devices connected work OK - if so how are they connected to the router - wireless or wired

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.

if you are connected by wireless, please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the separate modem, the router is a TP-link TL-WR1043ND

Please make a note of the status of the lights on the modem and on the TP-link TL-WR1043ND router when working normally - post that light status here.
Now when the internet disconnects make a note of the status of the lights for the modem and router here again. also note which have changed.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot etc

Hello,

I have a weird problem with the wifi I connect to in my office studio.

I keep getting disconnected =(

I know my connection is stable because the wifi signal icon in my taskbar (I am running windows 8) does not have the exclamation point and I do not have the same problem with my other desktop and ipad connected to the same router.
I do a quick fix by disconnecting and reconnecting again and this solves the problem.

I have recently changed ISPs and I had the same problem for both of them.

I also bring my laptop home from work and I do not have the problem at home. Only in the studio and only on my laptop.

Hello!

I recently bought an Acer Aspire laptop (18.4" monitor). I am having difficulty connecting to the internet with this computer, and perhaps someone here can help me out. Here is some information:

Network Adapter: WiFi Link 5100 AGN
Router: Verizon Wireless (Model Name: MI424-WR)

Wireless network connections are detected, and the connection is "strong". However, when I try to connect, it always fails. When I go to the command prompt, and type "ipconfig" I see "Media Disconnected". I know there is a wireless button on the Acer's, but this is automatically turned on during startup, so I know this is not the problem. For some reason, my router is just not connecting to my network adapter, and I am unsure how to resolve this problem. Thanks for any insight of this issue!

Hey
So I'm kinda freaking out about this because this is my dad's really expensive touchscreen laptop that's broken. Earlier I was using it; I had four tabs open on chrome (one playing music) and had just started downloading a reliable copy of a movie. There is no way that the download could have had bugs, I checked thorough like fifty of the comments and all praised it on being a clean, high definition copy. I was about to download something else (again with shining reviews) and the computer just started freaking out.

At this point I had chrome open (four tabs still), utorrent, and another window on the file i was downloading (so again utorrent).

To begin with the computer froze, still playing the music, so I pressed start and nothing happened,when it unfroze it went into the blank start screen. I pressed start again and eventually the background appeared.long story short it kept doing that with the music still playing so I turned it off.

When I turned it on again it spent a few minutes downloading updates. After that was done i opened chrome only to find that there was no Internet connection. Usually it connects right off the bat. I opened networks and this is what I see:

Attachment 64487

Okay so the off button was, and is grey, it does not react to me clicking on it, nor does it do anything.

Please help me and please do it now. My father with kill me if I've broken this.

Hi, I bought a Lenovo U410 sometime in July 2012 (bought it back home in Malaysia). About a week or two after I bought it, the laptop sleeve cover came off, causing the laptop to fall to the floor. But fortunately, other than a small dent (pictured) at one corner of the laptop, everything seems to work okay. [well, if you plug in an earphone, only the right side would play but I'm not too concerned about that] I've enjoyed using the laptop, everything works fine & easy for me. I use it mainly for my studies (I'm a rising junior in Madison) and occassionally some photos & video processing. Other than The Sims, I never actually used my laptop for 'gaming' stuff (was planning to soon though). But recently, in the past few months, I realized that there's something wrong with the laptop. It connects to WiFi just fine and everything, but whenever I connect my external hard drive to my laptop, my Wifi would disconnect automatically & wouldn't reconnect until I remove the hard drive. This happen even when I connect a USB port to the laptop, but doesn't happen when I connect a small USB pendrive or my phone (Samsung Note 4) or a bluetooth speaker. Not sure what's the problem with it, and I'm a noob when it comes to things like this, so I would really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
The Laptop maybe having power issue since the drop.
    You can try opening 
        Control Panel / Hardware and sound / Power Options / Change plan settings on selected power plan / Change Advanced power Settings
       Now look for the Wireless Adapter Settings Make sure not to use the scroll but use the scrollbar to the right
       Open the Wireless adapter setting and make sure that both plugged in and on Battery are set to Maximum Performance.
   
 
Let me know if this works for you

I'm using windows 8 on my Lenovo G400. It's CPU is intel Core i3 2.4Ghz, RAM 2 GB. Recently my laptop becomes disconnected from Wifi frequently. At first I thought its my wifi connection problem, but found my other laptops and mobile devices are connected to wifi and internet is working well. I checked some post from here asking solution for similar problems and according to them I changed my power option to high performance. However, while checking my network adaptor's driver i found the findings in the picture. Please let me know what to do to get rid of this problem. Thanks in advance

Hey all,

Happy holidays!

I don't know what has triggered my PC to do this but it's driving me up the walls.

After every reboot or a fresh start, my Win8.1 PC always has its WiFi disconnected. It then takes me 2-3 tries to connect to my home WiFi as it returns a simple "couldn't connect to network" error message. I tried re-installing the drivers but that hasn't helped.

The last software that could have triggered is my VPN software. But the problem started to happen a few days AFTER I installed the VPN. The problem doesn't go away even if I disable the VPN's TAP driver. I cannot uninstall my VPN as I need it almost daily.

I hope there is a solution to it. It's so frustrating.

Hi mufaa,
It may be a problem from your WiFi driver can you go to Device Manager then check if your WiFi driver is up to date?

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.

Dear all,

I'm using ZTE MF62 HSPA+ 21Mbps MIFI Portable Broadband Wifi Router
I used to connect it directly to my pc, and provide wifi to my others device.
All the while are ok, but yesterday I just found out that all my laptop & phone also couldn't detect the wifi from the ZTE modem.

In device manager, the zte technologies msm driver was in yellow sign.
Under cmd - Ipconfig - media state it showed media disconnected.
I have tried to uninstalled the driver from device manager but failed to reinstall the driver. Error message from installing process "no driver found".

I brought it out from my house & tried to install it in others pc, however, the same error occurred.

May I know anybody can help me on this issue?

I've read through hundreds of posts trying to figure out my issue. Unfortunately, I've been unsuccessful.

Here's the issue, I was given a new laptop for work and it connects fine to our secure wireless network at the office, but when I brought it home it will not connect to my wireless network at home.

When I try to connect to my network at home the wireless manager sits and spins saying "trying to acquire network address". I have 2 iPhones, 1 eMachine and 1 Macbook connected to my network working fine and dandy. However, the HP laptop from work simply won't connect unless wired.

I have tried the following:
1. Uninstalled and reinstalled the driver.
2. Power Cycled my Router
3. Power Cycled my entire network
4. WinsockXPFix tool

I'm completely at a loss here. No idea what to do to fix this. I'm running Windows XP and have a 2Wire router.

I appreciate any advice anyone can give me to help solve this annoyance.

Hi Guys,
This is Viral. I am using an Acer laptop model ASPIRE 4736 since the last five years. There haven't been much issues with it. except for the battery and thats it. But recently, since last two weeks I noticed that my Wifi would stop blinking after sometime after I start my laptop and then it wouldn't work even when I try to turn on and turn off the Wifi switch(it doesn't respond anything). I tried searching the net for this issue using my office laptop and found that a system restore would help to solve this issue. Since I remembered that I updated Java as well as there was this ad software which got installed and I had unistalled it. So I did a system restore and then when I opened the device manager, I am not able to see intel r wifi link 5100 driver on it. I tried restarting my laptop and did everything and couldn't find the driver(it was there before the system restore). But later on the same day, the driver got installed automatically and the WiFi started working but only for a couple of minutes after the restart and then it stopped. So  I did the system restore again to the date when everything was working perfectly and when i did that, again my intel r wifi link 5100 driver is not shown on the device manager(network adapters). I don't if it would automatically get installed or not but its sure that the WiFi issue still be there. So can you please help with this issue?

Hello,

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.

Thanks

Aieden

I've had experience this problem for a while now on my newly built windows 10 rig. Every few hours, my Wifi simply stops working; the connection is lost. Sometimes it reconnects after a minute or so. Most of the time, I would need to manually disable/enable the wifi adapter in my Network Settings to get it back up again.

It happened with a relatively expensive adapter that I bought not to long ago - Netgear A6210 USB 3.0 dual-band wifi adapter. I found a thread about this issue here. I've not been able to resolve it with any of the tips provided (including downloading a generic 3rd party Mediatek driver). I've used this same adapter without this problem on my older Win7 machine. I thought maybe this adapter "went bad".

So I tried to replace this adapter with an older Wifi adapter made by Rosewill, using older Rosewill drivers. The same issue occurs. (Again, this Rosewill adapter worked perfectly in my Win7 system) So I have a hunch the problem is Windows 10 itself. Does it not place nicely with existing or older wifi adapters on the market? Would I need to buy a new adapter specifically certified for Windows 10?

Anyone have any insights on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there

This USB Wifi adapter seems to be a MEGA performer --Lovely finally to be able to THINK of getting rid of LAN cables all over the place.

I've no probs with decent HD Movie streaming from a SERVER with one of these (I unplugged the LAN and inserted the USB Wifi adapter into a USB3 slot --note this needs genuine USB3 to work at proper speed). My Home router can deliver 802.11ac so no probs there.

Brilliant piece of kit and NO MORE CABLES !!!!!!. Wifi will soon be able to deliver comparable speeds to LAN especially for HOME networks. !!!

Here's the UK Link but is available in US and Europe. In any case it's delivered (in my case) by Amazon S.A.R.L (Luxembourg) so no tax !!!. even though I ordered from UK web site --they will ship outside UK tax free.
