Preferred Solution: can Wireless lan and ethernet Lan co exist?

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 dont think it'll work but if anything, make sure your IP address on each network is different.

Ok, I have a problem that is going to cause me to go insane... Ok my friend apparently formatted his laptop with the wrong disc and now several things aren't working due to the wrong drivers being installed. Its a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5900, I have already been to their main site and looked at all the drivers they have posted for it. There is no Ethernet Controller!!! Thus meaning I cannot connect to the internet, otherwise I would just use a program to find all the drivers for me and that be that. I ran a scan with a program that I found that does not require a net connection to work and it showed that the driver is Realtek GBE_FE Ethernet PCI Nic. The computer runs XP, so I found the drivers relatively easy and then installed them... and they were not the ones for it because its still saying the Ethernet is not installed on the Device Manager. I used Driver Genius to find out what the driver was, Driver Detective requires a net connection to work... so lame... I've been sitting here for about 2 hours and its driving me crazy. Please if anyone can help me here I would be MOST appreciative. Thanks

there are many peices of hardware out there that allow you to transmit video from one TV to another wirelessly (or from a computer) but ive searched the internet over and cannot find a similar device that will allow you to input a signal from a dvi cable then transmit it wirelessly and output with a dvi cable.. basically to transmit High definition... im looking to do this from my computer to my tv. right now im just using S-video so i cant get the higher resolutions on my screen
 

A:wireless dvi transmitter? do they exist?

I have never tried to search for a wireless dvi nor will I ( althoug i have contemplated the idea) for this reason; I am 98 percent sure they do not exhist, at least not a dvi to wireless dvi by itself. Cause Hi DEF is HUGE . But there are certain devices that kinda work like that . BUT u need a fast wireless network. One item that will soon come out and is 99 percent probable easy to use and setup is the new Apple's ITv thing that is coming out soon . From what i have heard apparantly it will work with Windows and MAc, but must use Itunes. It will support all resolutions up to 1080i. I am not sure if they will have dvi , but the signal will absolutely be digital( i think and hope) and will be wireless, most importantly it will be HD! This is basically a box u put near the tv , to which your computer send the image signal . Many people are excited about it and it should definetely be something to look into. Most brobably this new APPLE ITV will have a controll remote. If using itunes isnt a good idea for u, u should consider that with the ITV ( thats what many call it, ) and itunes , It will basically do anything that itunes is capable of doing.

Hi all,

After a recent reinstall of XP on an old system, I have been experiencing a few problems getting the wifi to work. Im using a generic wifi usb adapter as the system does not have an onboard wireless card. I can only detect (and use) the wireless network coming from my phone which is a portable hotspot and one other wireless network. I know that there are many wireless networks that should be visible but are not being displayed for some reason. Any advice would be fab. Cheers.

The specs of the PC are:
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 2, 32 bit
Processor: AMD Sempron(TM) 2200+, x86 Family 6 Model 8 Stepping 1
Processor Count: 1
RAM: 767 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT, 256 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 78152 MB, Free - 70822 MB; E: Total - 953867 MB, Free - 344492 MB;
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC., A7V600-X
Antivirus: None
 

A:Wireless networks exist but not visible.

Wireless routers can be configured to not broadcast their SSID (ie their network name) which means other wireless-enabled devices within range cannot "see" them.

Once again I find myself having to purchase a wireless PCI adapter for my PC. For some reason, I seem to be having to replace these things more than any other single component in my computers and I am tired of them living such short lives. I have used Belkin and Linksys exclusively to this point, the last being the Linksys WMP54G.

I am beginning to wonder if the familiarity of their name doesn't suggest quality of their product. I am not hard on my computers and I treat them well as far as cooling, not overloading and when handling them.

So, now I am looking at alternative brands as there are many but don't want to go from the frying pan to the fire. Some of the brands on newegg.com that look decent are Rosewill and TP-Link along with Asus. I am familiar with Asus but not with the others. I am on a tight budget so cost is a big consideration. Any suggestions as to which brands are most likely to sell me a durable product or which component might be best to consider?

Thanks

Hi there,

I have a Rosewill RNX-G300EX/LX installed on my PC (it's an Acer, that's all I really know, and I'm running Windows7). I've had it for 9 months and never had a problem.

About an hour ago, I was browsing the internet when it suddenly disconnected. I thought it was my modem since I have a pretty shoddy service, but it isn't. I am still using it on my phone and it is working just fine.

The Windows network and sharing center is telling me that no connections are available, so I clicked on troubleshoot. I skipped where it told me to plug in an Ethernet cable, since I use a wireless adapter, and it told me that my wireless card is disconnected.

I thought maybe if I reinstalled it, it would fix it. So I uninstalled and reinstalled using the disc.

Now the Ralink icon on the desktop is black and when I hover over it it says "Ralink Wireless LAN Card Not exist"

What does this mean, and how do I fix it? Thank you.
 

A:ralink wireless lan card not exist??

And it doesn't show up in Device Manager, not even as an "other device," right?

It may mean that the wireless card has died or maybe there is a problem with the slot (it's a PCI card, right?). Uninstall the driver and then physically remove and reinsert the card. If that doesn't help try it in a different slot if you have another spare or can switch it with another device.

Hi all! I would really appreciate if anyone could help me with my problem. I have been trawling the net for hours to try to find a solution but as I am pretty much (well, competely) clueless about anything techy, I haven't been able to find a solution!

I have a Dell Dimension 3100 (only has VGA output)
I have a DVD player (SCART only)
I have a set-top virgin media box (RF and SCART)

I have bought a Clearco HD9000 projector (has VGA, S-video, RF and AV input)

I want to send the image and sound wirelessly.

Is there a wireless sender out there that is compatible with all of that? I have had trouble finding any that takes VGA (something about it being too dense?).

I have looked at a VGA to S-video adaptor (only a few quid!) which would allow me to connect it to a wireless transmitter, but does my computer need a TV-out to work with this? I don't even know if it has such a thing!

Alternatively would something like a VGA to TV signal convertor (around 30 quid) work?

I would be huuuugely grateful if anyone could help me out on this, and yes, I am embarassed about being so unbelievably clueless!

Thanks so much
 

A:Wireless sender with VGA and SCART inputs: does such a thing exist?

Need more Info . . .

I am not sure what you are trying to do.

You want to wirelessly transmit video. Do you mean transmit your RGB computer video to your RGB projector port?

I bought a new device that transmits HD RGB signals wirelessly to another RGB input so that you can take your laptop and transmit HD video to a remote big screen (55") monitor. We use it for presentations. The device is new as of Nov. 2008 but is based on the new US frequency FCC allocation for high bandwidth video.

Not sure if it would work in your county.

It's called "Wireless USB to VGA Adapter Kit". Techspot won't let me post the URL because they consider me a "newbe".

So, check it out at Cablestogo. You know the drill . . . www and dot com.

I am sure they could tell you if it would work for you.

Good Luck,

It said it was there was a problem with my IP configuration, but upon checking the properties of my wireless adapter, where normally ipv4 and ipv6 are located in the list, there was nothing. It wasn't present in my wired adapter's list either. I clicked the install button and was able to install ipv6 back without incident, but when I try to install ipv4, it says "Could not add the requested feature. The error is: Access is denied." The image attached is the area I'm referring to where ipv4 is missing from. I've tried using netsh.exe to reset my IP "stuff" and winsock, but after restarting, nothing is different. I've uninstalled and reinstalled my driver for both my wireless and wired adapters. I've scoured the web and found a very small few articles of people with the same problem, but none of them have found a solution. Can anyone here think of anything else that I might try? Thanks in advance for any help I receive. I can provide any additional information that might help you to diagnose my problem.

That probably means that they want to restrict usage to one computer per connection and do not want wireless networks set up. So, please check with the IT department before doing anything, as it's not very hard for them to detect violations.

On the assumption that you will not attempt this unless it falls within the rules, you can use a Wireless Access Point (WAP). Use encryption, preferably WPA2-PSK, AES, but at least WPA-PSK, TKIP. Use a passphrase that cannot be guessed and does not include dictionary words.

So I just bought myself a new laptop (hp dv6910us) and I'm enjoying it thoroughly but I have a very basic question about what to use in terms of internet. In my apartment, I can easily connect to the internet through my ethernet connection or through the wireless. Both are smooth, fast connections. In terms of increasing the lifespan and battery-life of the computer, should I stick primarily to connecting through the ethernet or through my wireless connection? I have an Atheros AR5007 802.11 b/g WiFi adaptor and my processor is an AMD Turion X-2 TL-60 2Ghz with 3.00GB RAM. Running windows vista 32 Bit.

Is there such a thing as a 5 Ghz Ethernet card, or is just 5 Ghz wireless?

A:Ethernet vs. wireless

No - 2.4/5 GHZ refer to the wireless frequency.

Ethernet comes in two speeds mostly - older 100 Mb/s (100 megabits) or more modern 1000 Mb/s (1 Gigabit). Of course, these are usually much faster than internet speeds even for slower 100 Mb/s unless you have amazingly fast broadband.

A:ethernet and wireless together

If I am going to use ethernet for an extended time I remove an external wireless adapter or switch an integrated wireless off. But that's to extend the life of the unused component and to save the battery if on battery. If you are using a PCI wireless card with the desktop then disabling it is probably the best you can do. But that is not going to impact your ethernet usage, so it is really your choice.

Please show the following for when you have an ethernet connection and for when it has dropped ...

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

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 4 port wireless broadband router with 2 x wireless laptops that can see each other and share files fine. I also have a PC which is hardwired to the router. All 3 machines have an IP address from the range I configured and all 3 machines can access the internet. The problem I'm having is that my hardwired PC cannot see the workgroup I have set up so therefore it can't see the 2 wireless laptops. The 2 wireless laptops can see the hardwired PC but cannot connect to it to view the shared folders.

I have switched all firewalls off, changed lots of config in the router, reset it to default, rebuilt my hardwired PC, pulled out some hair, changed network settings all over the place but just cannot get the hardwired PC to see the workgroup.

Any suggestions anyone ! !
 

A:! ! ! ! ! Ethernet Can't See Wireless ! ! ! ! !

Well, as long as all three are getting DHCP addresses from the same network, then the router isn't to blame, so, get it configured and leave it alone.

You say you've setup a workgroup for the laptops. That desktop machine also needs to be a part of that same workgroup. Then, you need to have the same username and password combination on the three machines, and then the desktop should be able to share files with the laptops.

And you definitely want the firewalls disabled until you get things working.

Your internet speed is determined by your provider and the package you have, it is irrelevant how fast your connection to router is as long as it is at least a little faster than speed to the provider. So you can not change the internet speed above what provider gives you.

Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

Hello,

I have a PC with wireless connection to the Internet (PCI wireless card). Is it somehow possible to use the Ethernet port (NIC) to PROVIDE network access to a device? (such as a D-Link internet camera with ethernet connection).

Thanks for your help!

Hi everyone

I dont really know whether this is really relevent, but I was just wondering. If I have both ethernet cable and wireless on one computer as 2 networks. Can I join up both of them to increase my internet speed or somthing. I tested both of them seperately and the ethernet cable was much faster than the wireless. My router is next to my computer. Can I have some tips. I will be putting some screenshots later.

Thanks in advance

Here's something that is causing massive loss of hair.....

My PC is connected to my router with a wireless card. I also connect my PS2 to my PC using an ethernet connection (the ps2 is "modified" and I use this connection to play music and video thru the ps2 to the TV).

Everything works fine with one exception. It seems like the wireless is not getting a DNS. To obtain one, I have to disable the ethernet card, connect to my AP, then enable the card. If I lose my connect with the AP (which happens sometimes, it's on the other side of the house and the signal is a little weak), then when it reconnects I have to do the whole disable/enable thing.

It's not a huge deal, but I do like my stuff to work properly and usually things like this are not problem for me, but this one really has me wondering. Anyone have any ideas?

Here's my ipconfig /all if that helps. What's odd is the ipconfig is *exactly* the same when I can connect and when I can't. So maybe it's not a DNS issue, but something else. But I am unable to connect to any web sites until I disable and re-enable the ethernet card.

Hello all-

I am at my family's vacation home. For several years we have stuck to using dial-up here, part of the whole isolation thing you know, but recently decided to upgrade to the most basic DSL. I set up the connection and connected the modem (Lynx L-220) to a wireless-b router (Linksys BEFW11S4) and everything was working great for about, oh, maybe an hour. It started getting unbearably slow, worse than dial-up. So I connected to the router with an ethernet cable and it's fine, most of the time. I then disconnected the ethernet and surfed wirelessly, and it was also fine. So the wireless only would work properly if I had just used the ethernet. ?????????? That's odd.......

I tried pinging a few sites on ethernet and wireless to see what happened. I opened Firefox, tried loading a page (of course it wouldn't) and then typed ping www.google.com in command prompt. It timed out a few times, then get a reply and, low and behold, the page suddenly started loading. Now I'm really confused. The internet works sometimes, the wireless works sometimes, and the ethernet works sometimes. ?????

I'm certainly planning to call tech support, but as that is a big thing to attempt, I thought I'd post here first and see if there is anyone out there who perhaps can help me.

OMG OMG OMG

Edit: I have tried pinging and loading pages only connected to the modem as well. It still doesn't work properly. I guess it's not the routers problem, maybe ... Read more

My Operating system crashed yesterday and I had to reinstall it, thus deleting everything off of my computer, including my configuration for wireless internet.

I installed the wireless adapter (Netgear WG111v2) like I was supposed to, I put the most up-to-date drivers for my computer to use the adapter as well as for the adapter to operate. It detects signals just fine, but when I put in my network's WPA passcode, my adapter gets stuck in this loop of "acquiring network address" and then dropping it and "acquiring network address" again. This baffles me because the code has worked on other machines.

Then, when I tried to connect my computer via ethernet cable, not only would my computer not connect to the internet, it's not even showing ethernet connection as an option in my Network Connections.

I really have no idea what to do at this point. Can anyone help me with this?

My ISP has supplied a Thompson Gateway router with wireless and 4 Ethernet ports. I connect to the internet from my desktop machine (Windows XP) via Ethernet.

My new Fujitsu Esprimo Mobile V6555 (Windows XP Professional) connects to the internet via wireless. I swapped to using Ethernet for a couple of days but when I wanted to use wireless again I failed. I tried lots of things but eventually did a “restore” to a date prior to the use of Ethernet and all was well again. I experimented and can now swap between the two PROVIDED I disable the wireless connection before plugging in the Ethernet cable.

I can understand the Fujitsu not being able to use both systems at the same time but was surprised that having them both connected should then disable the wireless connection requiring a “restore” to get it back. I contacted Fujitsu and got the following response:-

“You should always be aware of whether you are connected to the wired or wireless network, and use only one network connection at a time. Your laptop can also be connected to both networks simultaneously, which can cause network instability, slow connectivity or confusing the OS!”

I would like to occasionally “network” the Fujitsu to the desktop machine using a spare Ethernet port on the router. This would only be used for basic exchange of files, no sharing of printers or scanners, or opening a file from one machine in an application running on the other, just very basic file exchange.

Hi guys,

In my office we have a windows server, 10 pc's and 3 printers. All devices are interconnected through a wired network. We have some business applications installed on the server and set up them to launch from client computers. As we are going to move to a new office space we have an intention to say goodbye to the wired network and make everything wireless. My question is will we be able to launch the programs which have being installed on server from client computers via wifi?

Thank you.

SInce I bought the HP Pavilion Notebook T1E85EA#A I have suffered from unreliable wifi. I had put this down to my router however I have replicated the issue on another connection/router. The wifi always shows as connected but the throughput seems to stop. I cant acess any web pages, cant access the router and unable to ping them command prompt as well. After a while it will suddenly start working again albeit the page loads will appear slow at times. Today I decided to try using ethernet as well however I have found this has exactly the same problem. Some of the diagnostics I have tried are as follows: Alternate connection method (ethernet)Alternate broadband connectionManually specifying tcp/ip settingsUpdating drivers (no new drivers found and the ones installed are from 2015), Tried from the HP software, windows update as well as in the device properties. Restoring windows back to factory spec but the issue continues. Is there anything else I can do to rectify the issue or should I send it back to HP?

My old Westell DSL modem died, and Verizon sent me an Actiontec model GT704WG. I have two desktops, both connected to the modem by ethernet cable, and a laptop, which uses the wireless capability of the modem. This worked fine with the old modem (until it died). I connected the cables to the new modem exactly as they were connected to the old modem. I'm now browsing happily on the laptop (i.e., wirelessly), but the desktops cannot connect to the Internet. Strangely, when I go to 192.168.1.1 on one of the desktops, I get the setup page for the old modem rather than for the new one, even though the old modem is now sitting in a box. The status of the lights on the modem is as follows:

power - green
DSL - green
Internet - green
ethernet - not lit (all four of them)
USB - not lit
wireless - green

All computers are running Windows XP, SP-2.

How could wireless be working, but not ethernet? Usually it's the other way around!

Do I, perhaps, have to connect the modem to one of the desktops by USB cable? My understanding is that it's not necessary. If it is, do I need a driver from Verizon? They did not send a CD with the new modem. Is the driver available on the Internet somewhere?

Thank you!!
 

A:Solved: wireless OK, but no ethernet

ethernet - not lit (all four of them)Click to expand...

I take that to mean the ethernet ports are bad (have you tried them all?) or the cables are bad.

This may be the correct user manual: http://business.verizon.net/Help/dsl/Default.aspx?case=c13947

Try the USB port unless your computers are:

"Note: USB LAN port is not supported with Microsoft Windows
NT 4.0, Windows Vista 64-bit, or Mac OS."

That unit is a modem/router combo. The USB port is not to the modem part; it is a special LAN port, so no driver or special software should be needed.

In my office upstairs I have my broad band modem and two PC's and two printers. I would prefer to have these hard wired (ethernet) connected.

Down stairs I want to set up a PC for my wife via a wireless connection and I would also like to be able to use a lap to from the basement from time to time.

Can any one suggest a suitable configuration.

I have a friend with a similar set up who uses Net Gear DG632 and Net Gear WPN 824, but don't know if this is the best option.

Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Ethernet and Wireless Combined

There's nothing wrong with your friend's configuration. One thing that I'd be thinking about, is the fast that you're going down two floors with the wireless signal. You might want to orient the antennas in a horizontal attitude to get more signal up and down, since the normal radiated pattern is like a bow-tie out the sides of a vertical antenna.

I network an XP box and a 98 box via wired Ethernet. Currently, a DSL connection is shared via a Zoom modem with a built-in router (5651_X4_2_2) connected to a Linksys switch (EtherFast 10/100 5-Port Workgroup Switch EZXS55W).

Just bought a laptop with a wireless card installed and want to share Internet connection and files wirelessly as already done via wired Ethenet (between XP box and a 98 box). Laptop features VISTA Home Premium.

Instead of connecting the Laptop to the switch via a patch cable (to share DSL and files), thought maybe there's a type of Ethernet to wireless adapter product that simply plugs into a port on the switch that would in turn transfer a wireless signal to the laptop. Or not?

Thanks in advance.

Dear all,

I have read all (i think) homegroup topics here but none solved my problem.
Homegroup is working perfectly when both computer are connected to router by ethernet cable.

As soon as i unplug the cable from computer 1. None of the computer is recognizing the homegroup of the other.

I tried rebooting both computers. Leaving homegroup, rebooting create new homegroup >> nothing helps.

Both computer get internet, can connect to the router, both computer can see and share folders with each other via the the network sharing way.

Both ethernet & wireless connection show up as HOME NETWORK

I have executed the Homegroup troubleshooter on both computers No changes.

Any clues on this?

Many thanks!
