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.)

Hi @Kazma, Welcome to the HP Forums! I read your post on the HP Support Forums and wanted to reach out to you. I see you are having issues with the Wireless and your HP ENVY x360 Notebook. This could be due to the Wireless adapter entering a power save mode on the Notebook. Here is a link that shows you how to enable away mode. It enables your computer to continue performing tasks, such as recording television programs or sharing video and music, even if you walk away from the computer. Specifically, when the computer is in Away mode. Please let me know how this goes. Please click the Thumbs up below to thank me for my efforts! Thanks.

I am currently stationed in Germany, and live in a village that has horrible internet. I cannot stream netflix, hulu, and downloads take several hours.

Is there a way to combine the internet that my cell phone receives and the wifi router I have at home to increase speed?

I have the ability to create a wifi hotspot from my cell phone if this helps.

Just something I thought up in my head, and wanted to find out if it is possible. Thanks in advance.

I have been trying for some time to accomplish the title result. I'm not techie enough to do it.

What I want is to be able to use a Tablet to read in the rear of my home (which is out of range for incoming wifi signal.)

If I can set up the computer to do this, I will cable connect to a router in that area.
I have two computers and could use either.

1.a PC running XP (should update to windows 8.1, but have never bothered to do that, since XP works just fine. (I had this computer sharing to the router, when I had DSL internet connection, using Windows wizard to set it up) Couldn't get it to work when I switched to WIFI internet access) I could switch to win 7 or 8.1 if that would help.

2. a Lap Top running WIN 8.1,

Any help is appreciated.

A:Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

Due to the age of XP this is not the best option for what you want to do

Either windows 7 or 8.1 have access to Internet connection sharing (ICS) built in

To use ICS you need at least two connections to the local LAN, these can be any mix of wifi or Ethernet.

As you have a laptop you likely already have a system to use for this

There is a tutorial explaining the basics ... and more on this site

Check it out and post back if you have any issues

Internet Connection Sharing - Create WiFi HotSpot

So I got a new router yesterday to replace the old one, and I've been working on it for a long time. But I can't seem to figure out why there isn't any internet connection. The new WiFi Router (D-Link DR-842) Shows it is connected to the internet (green light) but in the setup page, it says disconnected. Could the PPPoE details be causing this? As far as I know everything is correctly set up except for the internet part.

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

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 with Windows 7. I have been using Time Warner Internet. It worked fine until yesterday. WiFi stopped working out of the blue. When I tried, wired connection works pretty well. I do not recall any significant changes to my computer while this happened. So now I can connect to the wifi hotspot but it says "No Internet Connection". When I connect the LAN wire with the WiFi router, internet works. The moment I remove it, it says No Internet Access, although computer is connected to the hotspot and signal is very well.

The drivers are being shown as up to date in device manager.

I tried following instructions given here: http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-Winsock-and-TCP/IP
This didn't work. Problem persists.

I have been through some threads around here. This is the ipconfig output:

Hi All,
I have established a Virtual Wifi Miniport and would like to share my laptops internet via the Miniport. Whenever I connect my android phone with this access point, it works perfectly for a few minutes and then all of a sudden there is no internet on the phone. The phone remains connected to the laptop hotspot but the internet access is no more there. Now at this point if I disconnect the connection between my phone and the hotspot and then again try to reconnect back again, it wont even connect. The phone will keep on searching and shows connecting status but can never connect. I have tried all sorts of softwares connectify, virtual router, intel mywifi and even tried to create a hotspot from the cmd using netsh command. All the hotspots work in the exact same way intially works perfect but maybe after half an hour internet is gone. I have completed all the steps properly even changed the settings in the laptop adapter with interet access to allow other networks to connect but nothing seems to work. I have a Windows 7 Machine and my wireless adapter is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless N-100 and the drivers are up to date according to windows. I know that its a problem with my laptop/OS or something because my android phone can connect and remain connected( without losing internet ) to the connectify hotspot in my wifi enabled desktop PC.I am breaking my head over this for the past 15 days even formatted my system once but no use. Please help if you can..please!

I've been battling this particular issue for a couple of weeks now without much success. I have a custom built desktop where my WIFI connection will deteriorate to the point where internet (and gaming over Steam, etc...) will be either painfully slow or unable to load pages at all. Windows claims throughout that I am connected to my WIFI network with internet access and good signal, even when I cannot reach any internet pages.

This problem has happened at 2 different locations (on different WIFI networks), and with 3 different WIFI adapters (TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 PCI, TRENDnet TEW-684UB USB, Edimax EW-7811Un). At both locations, I have another laptop and a phone that can connect to the WIFI network just fine. I even got a couple of the adapters to work fine on the laptop without the issue.

I've found that disabling NetBIOS seems to temporarily improve matters (I'd read elsewhere that that can cause issues), but it has not resolved the problem. Also: I'm getting DNS errors in the Windows 7 event logs:

"Name resolution for the name XXXX timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."

Hey everyone, sorry if this is in wrong area.

So today I bought a secondhand computer. It's a Toshiba Satelite L875D-S7230.

When I connect it to my home wifi it connects no problem and says 'internet access' when I hover over the icon. However when I open open google chrome or internet explorer and type in a site, it takes a little while then says this page cannot be displayed or this web page is unavailable.

The guy I bought it from says he had no issues. And I know it's not the internet because I'm using the internet to post this from phone.
I've tried a few ideas that worked for other people on other forums like using cmd box but to no avail.

Has anyone got any idea why the computer is being such a turd?? Can anyway give advice on how to fix the problem? Thank you all so much!

But now i can connect to it, but when I access the Internet in any of my browsers (firefox, ie8, opera, or safari) I get a blank screen in firefox after going to any site, and the rest just say that it's not connected to the Internet. Even tried going into Safe Mode with Networking, no luck. Please help!

OK, I'm new here so take it easy on me. But my questions is this;

I have a CCTV camera the is connected to the internet via 3G/4G but also has it's own WiFi. I can connect to it via cell phone or laptop locally. But when 3G goes down I can't connect remotely. So here is what I would like to see if I can do. I have a WiFi close by from the house can I connect the camera to my WiFi in the house to connect to the camera?

One important snag, I can't access the home router to reconfigure, as this is provided by my ISP. Should I connect a router to the ISP router to have access to port forwarding and other router functions?

A:3G/4G Internet with WiFi

What the make and exact model numbers of "all" devices.....camera, laptop and router?

You can access the router (any router to include ISP routers) via the web based page. You access by typing 192.168.x.x where the x's are either 0 or 1 or some order of that.

Hi. I have tried everything for countless hours today with no avail. Yellow exclamation mark in the WiFi icon, No Internet, DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN when I try to use Chrome, No network access and unidentified network in the Centre. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless card, changing drivers, all sorts of DNS, all sorts of commands, rebooting everything, ethernet cable, virus scans, disabling firewalls and so on. This all happened when I updated yesterday and then uninstalled AVG, before it was working fine. Internet works like a charm on other devices, and my wireless card is listed as working properly when checked. I have no idea what else to try. Thank you.

Hey guys... I'm at my wits end here and hoping someone can help me out.

I've been happily able to switch between my Ethernet and WiFi connections at home with no issues forever. When I'm in my home office I am connected via Ethernet because it's a considerably faster connection but, every so often, I bring my laptop to another room and connect via WiFi. Never has this been an issue.

4 days ago, I grew tired of the constant task bar pop-ups from Avira Free AV and decided to kill it and give Panda Free AV a try. Things had been going swimmingly since then so I had no reason to think there was an issue... until today that is. For the first time since I installed it, I hopped downstairs to play with my son and thus connected via WiFi. Every other device in this house (and there's a lot of them) is connected via WiFi with no issues but lucky me, upon switching to WiFi I see the dreaded yellow ! over my connection. I disconnect and reconnect a few times. I even go so far as to forget the network. Nothing. So, I run upstairs and power cycle the modem. This is where things get weird....

Power cycling the modem/router worked so I went on with life. After an hour or so I shut down my laptop and all was right with the world. Then 2-hours later, I boot it back up and wouldn't you know it the dang yellow ! is back. It is at this point that I realize it's gotta be something going on with my laptop. Yes power cycling the modem/router worked before but out of every device on my network m... Read more

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.

Also the wireless adapter is a Atheros AR5007 and under vista , any change in routers or router settings can cause issues

can you explain what you are connected to using the ethernet cable ?

and you should update the wireless driver from the manufacturers website - if that does not work - then from Atheros site

whats the make and model of the PC ?

Hello everyone, so the other day my PC unexpectedly shut down and been giving connectivity issues since.
Currently, I can connect to my WIFI router, gain an IP address. however I am getting no internet access.
I have a virtual machine running on the PC, with windows XP, and this machine does have full internet access.

Problems and resolutions so far:

Windows firewall and security manager were corrupted and various services did not start however all are up now.I reset the TCPIP stack via command prompt.I reinstalled Wifi drivers.I ran the sfc and chkdisk  commands. Check disk resolved some issues.I did a traceroute and i hit my router, after there is a request timeout then it goes to a few addresses before stopping.

Im lost now as everything seems to be up, just I am unable to browse. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I have a BSNL Wimax internet(India) connection. I get input from a terrace antenna to a modem(OX253P). An ethernet cable is then connected between the modem and the laptop. My internet works perfectly fine when the ethernet cable is plugged in directly to the laptop. I have also got a TP-Link TL-WR841N 300Mbps Wireless N Router. When I plug in the output from the modem (OX253P) to the WAN port(blue) on TL-WR841N my internet worked for a week via the wifi router, without any configuration.
My internet service went down for a week due to a fault. When it was restored, the internet via the modem to laptop(via an ethernet cable) works but doesn't work when I give the output of the modem(OX253P) to the wifi router WAN port. I have tried resetting both the wifi router and the modem to original settings, MAC cloning etc. but nothing seems to help. Also disabled DHCP on wifi router but no joy.
The WAN light turns off as soon as I connect to the modem via the ethernet cable. I have a feeling that something isn't right with my modem. Can someone please help?

A:No internet via wifi router

Read other 6 answers

I've got a strange problem, and I hate to say I think it might be hardware at fault. This is a problem because it's a laptop.

When I got the machine, neither LAN nor wifi would work, despite two different sets of what should be good drivers. I booted into ubuntu, and there the wifi began to work, but not the LAN. At some point I pulled and reset the wifi card; perhaps that accounts for the change, but I'm not sure.

Then, directly back in windows 7 x64, now the wifi also worked, but not the LAN.

I've updated all drivers, including the AMD video (which handles a lot of functions). Device Manager looks very happy.

The LAN says "unidentified network", unless I hard-spec the IPv4 default access point IP. Then it says connected, but no internet access. Windows classifies it as a Public network. Windows Firewall is up, but dropping it did not help.

The wifi seems to be working reliably. But if I toggle it off via the keyboard hotkey while an ethernet cable is plugged in, when I reenable it it, like the LAN, will connect but with no internet access. Then I remove the ethernet cable, re-toggle the wifi switch, and it comes on with internet access. It seems that when the ethernet problem manifests it also hangs the wifi.

I'd rather have wifi than LAN, if I had to choose. But I'd like to get both going. Unfortunately this is onboard LAN and I can't change the card. I'm going to post the IPCONFIG output following.

A:No LAN internet; but wifi works

You don't have internet on Ethernet, because the adapter can't contact a dhcp server.

First thing - have you tried a different ethernet cable? Try, if you haven't already.

Second, connect the Ethernet only, in command prompt type

ping localhost

and post the results.

Hi, I would really appreciate some help. I had a virus I believe it was a form of the Antivir virsus. A novice at computers i tried to fix the symptoms instead of the problem. Big mistake computer screwed up not sure what I did. I removed programs that I thought my be infected. Tried to restore my system. I eventually downloaded malware it said no infection, now even though internet explorer is downloaded , i can't get to the internet, can't disable or repair, instead it says warning visiting the website may be harmful to your computer. ie icon replaced with internet symbol.
It started about a month ago, pop ups would happen continously. Ads for various products would suddenly start playing. No picture just sound. I ignored it, then a few says ago I had pop up which denied me internet access unless I purchased some spyware. I searched for a solution on the internet,and followed instruction. I believe the virus is gone but computer is not the same. My main issue is of getting back online.

Thanks in advance....

I have a HP notebook running Windows 7 Pro that can access network shares and the Internet without issue over Wifi.

However, when I connect to the same network over wired ethernet (Wifi disabled), it can still access network shares, but no Internet.

Any ideas what might be the cause (other hardwired PCs can access both network shares and Internet normally) ?

A:wifi won't connect to internet

If you go to Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center, and look at the Network connection diagram, is Internet X'ed out? If so, just click on the Internet. Does that work. (I'm sorry I can't be more specific but, for some reason, I can't get there right now to be more precise. I think I need to reboot.

I want to know how to set up a WiFi internet connection. I have a WiFi card on my computer.

A:How do you set up a WiFi internet connection

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

I have been having a lot of trouble with my wifi conection for a month or 2 now and ive just about had it. When i am playing a game, mostly world of tanks and wargame red dragon, my wifi will stop for about 30-60 seconds entirely. I check and it still says i am connected, but all programs that use the internet lose connection, not just the game. However, if i am connected to an Ethernet cable i have seamless conection however, being connected to an Ethernet cable is not always an option. I have anitvirus software (norton) and have removed several viruses. I have a dual-band wifi connector thingy built in to my laptop and if i am downloading something i can get upwards of 3 mb/s and when i test my connection i have 9+ mb/s. I can provide more info if needed.

A:Bad internet (wifi) connection

Uninstall and then re-install the drivers first, get the newest driver from the manufacturer's website if possible.
What is the wifi card chipset? Who makes the wifi card? I had a similar problem with a belkin usb wifi adapter when gaming. Some chipsets had packet burst mode which you could try to disable: http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/cs-015402.htm
If you let me know the exact wifi card you have, I may be able to help further. I ended up replacing my belkin card with a wireless g atheros wifi card which solved my problem.

I am far from computer savvy, but I know basic things. Here is my issue...
My HP pavillion dv6000 (yes it's old, I know) wont allow me to use the Internet. It says I am connected to my home wifi with 5 bars signal strength. My iPad and Droid both connect to my wifi and I can use the Internet fine. I actually have 2 Hp pavillion dv6000 laptops, and neither will connect to the Internet! Up until today everything worked fine and all of a sudden I can't open the intent on either one! I called Hp and they were no help. I have read other posts about people having similar problems, and tried the solutions suggested but nothing has worked! I need my laptop only because my wonderful iPad can't do everything I wish it could.

Help!? Thanks in advance!

I've recently found that my android phone can create a WiFi hotspot to share the internet and started streaming media over my new network I've created. But one of the applications needs my firewalls to be turned off to be able to view the files. I'm not too comfortable with my computer unprotected while on my phones internet.
If I use the connectify app to create the WiFi hotspot without any internet it also works but then my phone cant receive emails and so on.

Will there be a way to connect to my phones WiFi hotspot with the internet still on on my phone but block internet access on the computer. And then when i want to go onto the internet just swich it back on.
Its realy quite a big hassle to switch between networks and so forth.
Any help will be appreciated.

Hello All,Here are the details.  I am able to open the Launch Manager (Fn+F3) and turn on wifi, but it doen't actualy turn on wifi.  I see a red X over the internet bars in the system tray - bottem righ corner. I am able to connect to the internet via LAN cable. Nothing seems to be happneing when I use the manual wifi slider/butten on the front, bottom right of the lapttop. It usually lights up an orange LED when used, but nothing is happening when I slide it. I have used both these metheds to turn on/off the wifi over the last year with out any issues.  I haven't preformed updates or installed software before/after having this issue - other than to update the wireless drivers. I'm running Win7 on an Acer Travelmate P643-M.Any thoughts or tests I can run?THANKS so much,Jay

I can connect to my home router through ethernet with my laptop, and I can connect wirelessly to it with other computers.

My laptop can also connect wirelessly to routers other than the home router. For some reason I'm having issues connecting wirelessly specifically with this laptop through this specific router. I need help troubleshooting. Diagnose and repair said there may be a problem with the DNS configuration.

I can't ping IP addresses either even the internet connection icon on the bottom right of the screen indicates that its connected to both my LAN and internet.

I can't connect to the NAS, so the LAN isn't working either.

Sorry, the title wasn't well thought out. I would have edited it if it was an option.

Hello, lets do some cleaning up and see if that helps you out .
How to Flush DNS in Windows Using the Command Prompt

Step 1 ? Close all open web browsers and applications on your computer.

Step 2 ? Open the Windows command prompt by selecting the ?Start? menu and entering ?cmd? in the search text field box followed by clicking the ?enter? key.

Step 3 ? At the command prompt, enter ?ipconfig /flushdns? followed by pressing the ?enter? key. After a moment, Windows will display a message similar to: ?Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.? Once the message is displayed, the DNS will be flushed removing all incorrect entries.

Then , we want to get the IP reset, so, lets renew its settings and see if this also helps out :
you will type in the command box : ipconfig /release then enter, then next ipconfig /renew then enter, this will reset the IP , now restart and attempt to have it reconfigure its connections to your router. Post back results please.

Hello everyone, so the other day my PC unexpectedly shut down and been giving connectivity issues since.
Currently, I can connect to my WIFI router, gain an IP address. however I am getting no internet access.
have a virtual machine running on the PC, with windows XP, and this machine does have full internet access.

Problems and resolutions so far:

Windows firewall and security manager were corrupted and various services did not start however all are up now.
I reset the TCPIP stack via command prompt.
I reinstalled Wifi drivers.
I ran the sfc and chkdisk  commands. Check disk resolved some issues.
I did a traceroute and i hit my router, after there is a request timeout then it goes to a few addresses before stopping.

Im lost now as everything seems to be up, just I am unable to browse. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
