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 -

Is the system new?
Do you have an Internet Security app installed, e.g., NIS, N360, KIS, McAfee, etc. . .?

Lightening fried my Linksys, so I got an Ativa router because it was fairly cheap and had decent reviews where I bought it from.

Hooked it up to my cable modem, and the local network will show, but I can't get internet access on my desktop (wired) or my laptop (wired or wireless), When I hook the ethernet directly from my modem to my desktop or my laptop it works, but when I put the router on it, the internet will work for 1-2 minutes and then drops connection.

The desktop is running XP SP2, laptop is running Vista Home Premium.

Hi all...............

I used to think I was good with PCs.......but I'm struggling with this one!!

My ISP is NTL (Virgin). I was connected via the USB and all was well. I recently purchased the router above. This router uses the ethernet cables, which I believe I've put in correctly, but if I leave in the USB it uses that route & if I remove it.........I get nothing!! I'm having no joy. I want to keep a wired connection for the PC and have the wireless for the games machines etc.

Can anyone help??

Sorry..a little more information. when I tried to re-install the modem using the ethernet cable option, an error came up saying..'put the USB cable in and try again!'

I am the proud owner of a new laptop! Yay!

I have an interesting and confounding problem.
Plugged in my new laptop (acer 4810TZ Window$ 7 64bit Home Premium) at home, recognized wireless, logged on and promptly downloaded 170+MB of updates. I also have a gigabit wired network and thought I would use that to watch a movie online. No connection over wired network. Joined my home workgroup (this took several days) wirelessly but no connection wired.
Took my laptop to work and it sees and connects to my wireless but no internet connection. Plug in the wired and it immediately connects to the network and internet. Disabled windows and McAfee firewalls to no avail.

At home - easy connection to wireless and network. Nightmare joining home workgroup. No wired connectivity.
At work - plug in wire and connects and sees other computers on the network. Sees wireless, connects, not internet access.


My other 2 laptops run Linux and have not had anything like this. Very frustrating.
Any ideas?

A:Connected but not internet access wireless/wired

Control panel----Internet options--double click----click connection tab at the top---skip setting and go down to Local area network (LAN) settings-----click the button, LAN settings------
check the box to auto detect settings, then click the OK button.
This should auto configure your providers IP address, and all the other pertinent info for that provider.

I have an Acer laptop (Windows 7) and SMC router.

The laptop connects to the wireless network but it says 'no internet access'. Troubleshooting nets me the information that "the DNS Server isn't responding".

The laptop can easily connect to the internet via ethernet.
It also connects wirelessly without issue to my phone's hotspot.
I have other computers that connect wirelessly through the SMC router to the internet without issue.
The laptop used to connect to the internet wirelessly through this same router. I did not use the laptop for a couple of weeks and when I fired it up again the wireless would not go to the internet.

To recap, there is nothing wrong with the wireless adapter on the laptop. The router's wireless network is fine and dandy.

So how can I get the laptop to understand the wireless signal is fine so connect to the internet already?

A:Connected but no internet (wireless - wired is fine)

A friend who reads my online journal, suggested winsockfix. My laptop is 64-bit and winsockfix complained loudly that it did not work at 64-bit. I tapped the options anyway and soon it said to reboot and when I did, all was magically fixed!

Hope this isn't confusing but, my internet provider (my cable company) came in to set up a wireless modem/router when we upped our internet speed today. We have three desktop computers which are hard wired to our existing Linksys router which we have been using previously. Would it be in our best interest to turn off the wireless function of that router (it's hooked up to the new modem/wireless router so the hardwired computers can function since the new unit has no ports to plug in the desktop computers into). Our wireless devices are all 'connected' to the new modem/router (using its passphrase and SSID). Can the wireless capabilities of each interfere with each other? They are sitting right next to each other.

A:Solved: Internet provider wireless modem/router and my hard wired router

It's confusing to me, but can make two comments ...

a. If you are not using the wireless network of a router it's best to disable or turn off the wireless--saves electricity and should extend the life of the router.

b. Two wireless networks whose channel numbers are less than five from each other can interfere. In North America if possible use channels 1, 6 and 11 to guarantee non interference.

I have a wireless router/access point (the US Robotics 8054) and I want to use it with an existing wired network. I do not need the wireless router to act as a router right now, the connection to the internet is through the wired network (so I am just plugging a cat5 cable into the router). How do I configure the router to act as an access point?

A:wired internet through wireless router

- Turn off DHCP in the router configuration.
- Set the router's IP address to be in the same subnet, but outside the range of the wired network's DHCP server.
- Connect the wired network connection to one of the LAN ports on the router.
- Do NOT connect anything to the WAN port of the router.

Okay I live in the dorms in college.(well actually they are not the dorms but overflow apartments because the dorms were full, not sure if it matters but thought i should add) I brought my wireless netgear router with me to school to plug my Ps3 into and to download certain things the school blocks on the regular wireless internet.

So I plug my router into the jack in the room and then run wireless to my laptop and wired to my Ps3. I set up the router and it determined the internet connection is DHCP . I set the router to obtain I.P. and DNS addresses dynamically and it won't work. then i set it to use static addresses. ( the address that it picked up dynamically ) It then works for awhile, sometimes a few hours and sometimes less than an hour. To get it to work again all I have to do is set it back to dynamic wait a couple minutes and move it back to static. When I lose connection my playstation says its a DNS error.

my roommate plugs his laptop directly into the jack on the wall because he doesn't have a wireless card and he hasn't said anything about losing his connection. But once i plugged him into the router he loses his connection just like me.

I am sure i am forgetting something important if anymore info is needed I will add. Please help it is really getting annoying changing the setting on the router

I recently bought a Netgear Wireless N 150 router (although I haven't set it up yet). One reason I chose it is that I was told it can be used as a wired network between our two desktop computers, and as a wireless access point for the laptop. But frankly, I don't always trust what the sales people tell me.

I've read on many sites that wired computers have some advantages over wireless, including security and speed, so I prefer a wired LAN for the main computers (they are within feet of each other and will stay that way). But I would like the convenience of going online via the wireless connection with my laptop in the other room.

I've never done this before (I always just had a wired connection between the 2 desktops and didn't bother going online with the laptop) and I need to know if this setup will cause any problems I should know about.

Please don't suggest I go wireless for the entire LAN -- I'm just too set in my ways to make that leap right now. If my planned setup won't work, I'll stick with my current one and forget the laptop.

I set up everything and if I have it wired it works fine but wireless it says can't find page when you try to get on the internet. I have set up networks before and never had a problem. first time I have used a Belkin router G+ I guess one of my question is this. I was reading on the Belkin site that it is already set for dynamic and that is for a cable modem and sounds like I should change it to pppoe for a DSL modem. would that make the difference. It is a brand new laptop and the wireless card is on and it sees the network and works when wired, it says it is connected wirelessly but wont get on the internet when not wired. Would the pppoe thing make a differnce? Please give me some help here. Thanks

Ok, I'm completely stumped here. I've got an older DSL modem (AT-RG634) that is connected to a windows XP box via ethernet. I'm trying to setup a wireless router (dlink wbr-1310) on the connection. The internet connection on the xp box works fine. However, if I plug the router into the modem directly, I am unable to get an internet connection. The router shows that a connection has been established to the modem, but it doesn't have any internet connectivity. I thought perhaps it was related to the MAC address, but I'm successfully able to connect 2 different mac laptops to the modem and have internet without issue. In summary:

Modem->XP via LAN = works
Modem->Macbook via LAN = works
Modem->iBook via LAN = works

Modem->Router->XP (all via LAN) = does not work
Modem->Router->Macbook (via wireless) = does not work
Modem->Router->iBook (via wireless) = does not work

On the wireless connections, I'm able to connect to the router via wireless without issue...I just can't access the internet. I've reset the router to factory conditions and messed with the config, but it strikes me as odd that both of the laptops were able to immediately connect without issue, yet the router is completely unable to connect to the internet. Is it possible that the router just doesn't work anymore? I haven't ever had any issues with it before now...

Please let me know if you have any ideas! Thanks!

Since Thursday morninG (Feb 3, 2011) I have not been able to connect to the internet with my laptop wirelessly. I have tries to configure my IP address through the command prompt, and oher suggestions I have found on the internet. I have a computer that is wired to the router, two laptops with a wireless connection, and two playstation 3's with internet access. I have never encounted a failed connection liek this before. Right not I have decided to back up my system and dump my system and restart all over. When looking at networks I an connect to, it says that I am connected to my router. However, my computer internet management says that my WLAN is disconnected, but my wi-fi router us in range and connected. In my network and sharing option in the control panel, when I try to diagnose my failed connection between router and internet, it changes the reasons. Right now the reason is that "Primary DNS Server is currently online but is not repsonding to connection attempts at this time." Then it explains smething about a firewall blocking "domains."

I really need to get this issue fixed ASAP. I have been using this router for close to 3 years without a problem like this. I used it perfectly fine the night before I realized I had a problem.

Here is my question, My roommate has a wireless network installed in the apartment we share. It is actually set up nicely, very rarely any problems getting on-line and browsing and such. The router is a Netgear WNDA 3700 and cable service is thru Comcast. I play a lot of on-line games and sometimes the connection will drop and I get a lot of lag and sometimes die (no fun). I was wondering if it is possible to run a Cat 5 cable from the back of the router straight to my computer, there is 1 connection available on the router, and If this is possible I want to make sure it won't interfere with him getting on the internet and doing whatever he does while I'm on-line. Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions.

A couple days ago i noticed that my wireless internet had been running slower than usual, so i thought i would try resetting the the router, which is a D-link DIR-655. After the reset, I am no longer able to connect to the internet through wireless. I have 1 desktop PC wired to the wireless router which can access the internet but my other desktop and two other laptops which rely on the router for internet can no longer connect to the internet. They can still detect and connect to the wireless network but they just cant get onto the internet.
Also, after the reset, the desktop pc that is wired to the router has a strange connection now, which is a PPPoE connection. When connecting with this connection, it brings me to a username/password screen which i had never seen before previous to the router reset. I have verizon DSL and usually it would connect automatically but now i have to connect manually through this new connection. I think the problem lies in the router but i cant figure out a way to solve this problem. Any guidance will be greatly appreciated. thank you.

I recently switched over to Comcast for internet and have an xfinity router. The wifi works perfectly on all computers and devices except one. It's not working on a large desktop that uses a TP-Link wireless card. When I try to connect to the internet from Firefox on this computer, it just says "Connecting..." on the top of the tab for a while and eventually goes to a "Server not found" page.

Every now and then, usually after I try something random to fix it (such as turning on "SoftAP mode" on the TP-Link card) the internet will work for a few seconds, but then it stops again.

(Sorry if I didn't put enough information in here; tell me if you need to know anything else.)

Checklist for networking Windows Machines with TCP/IP
- PCs which are not XP must have TCP/IP installed.
- Each PC must have a unique computer name.
- Each PC must have a network share defined.
- ALL NICS must be on the same subnet (e.g. IP 192.168.0.* subnet mask
- XP PCs must have Netbios over TCP/IP enabled (only essential for XP to talk to W9X PCs).
- MS Client and file & printer sharing must be enabled on each machine.
- All NICs must have their node type = anything except p-node (peer to peer, or point-point).
* To check, open a command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL.
- XP's ICF firewall is permanently disabled. (Only necessary for pre XP SP2).
- All 3rd party firewalls are disabled, uninstalled and deleted (until connection is working).
- PCs have the same workgroup (helps, but not essential for XP/2K, necessary for 9X/ME).

Allow 15 mins after rebooting a PC for that PC to appear in the workgroup, or
for it to see all other PCs. Or you can search for the PC by its computer name.
Additional things to check if you still have problems:
- Check your Services are Started on all PCs: Workstation, Server, TCP/IP Netbios helper, Computer Browser.
- XP gives access to its shares via the Net Guest Account. (Note, not the same as the local guest account in user accounts which should be off). Net Guest Account is enabled by default in XP, but... Read more

I have been having issues with my the Linksys Wireless card I installed in my Desktop computer for some time now. For some reason the connection just drops, but it still says I am connected. I leave a dos window open to watch as it happens by pinging the router. All of the sudden it will say "request timed out", but the icon shows that it's still connected to the wireless network.

I have tried just about everything to overcome this but nothing seems to work. Rebooting the router will allow it to work for a few minutes and then it times out again. Sometimes it will continue timing out, sometimes it will reconnect and sometimes it will says limited or no connection. Sometimes hitting repair will do the same thing...make it work for a few moments and they down again.

I have 4 other devices that connect to that router wirelessly and they have no issues at all, so I'm not prepared to blame the router. I noticed that my desktop's event view shows this entry frequently:

“The system detected that network adapter” Linksys...PCI Adapter – “Packet Scheduler Miniport was connected to the network, and has initiated normal operation over the network adapter”.

Would seeing this event frequently not indicate that the card was dropping often and coming back up?

I'm pretty much ready to run a 50' ethernet cable to the computer, but I thought I'd check with you guys first before I completely give up on the wireless card.

They replaced the modem and since then my wireless router has not worked. I assume I had a power surge that blew both the modem and the router. I "borrowed" my mother's router, same brand, but better model, which the laptop has been connected to before. I am still getting connected but it's saying that there is no internet access. The lights on the router are either a solid orange or blinking orange. I have already tried the resets, changed the IPv4, moved the router around, ect. I have full wired internet but I am running into and tripping over the cords running all over the house(running to laptop, PS3, iPhone and iPod). There is no support for the routers(both are Belkin), unless I pay $40 for a 15 min phone call. My aunt does IT and figures it's something in the house stopping the wireless signal from being picked up but she's not 100%. Like I said, both routers have been used for all my devices before. Is there any settings that I could look into? Factory reset did nothing either..
Any help or advice would be great!

A:Wireless router is connected, no internet access, power surge?

Don't expect a useful replly when you so seriously short your help of valuable facts. For example, the router has many lights. Exactly which one is orange. And then quote the router manual where it says what orange for that one router means.

You post is even vague about what connects to what. Does it work wired but not wireless? Do computers talk to each other but not connect to the internet? Do wired computers connect to the internet? You did not even list he model number so that others can discover needed facts that you withheld.

Every light even has a specific name, a specific function, and maybe various colors. Orange means different things for different electronics. What does the manual say a flashing orange light means? And what do the other colors for that light report?

I've never had this happen before. This morning I opened Firefox (version 3.6.20), which I typically use to access the web, and got the "unable to connect" message. I checked my router settings and everything seems fine. I did notice in the router settings the IPv6 connectivity is listed as limited. I'm not sure if this has changed or has always been this way. I unplugged my router and cable modem, restarted both computers and tried to access the internet via Firefox again...without success. I opened IE (version 9) and am able to access the internet just fine. Anyone know why one browser works fine but another cannot access the web?

This computer is a Sony Vaio running Windows Vista home premium connected via a Belkin wireless router to a cable modem.

I am using a Netgear MR814 Cable/DSL Wireless Router to share a DSL connection. I have it upstairs connected to the modem and one computer. Downstairs I have four computers that need to be networked and have access to the connection. I have a D-Link DWL-810+ Wireless Bridge to communicate with the Netgear wireless router upstairs. I want to connect this wireless bridge to a Netgear RT314 Broadband Router. When I plug the Wireless bridge directly into one of my computers' ethernet ports I am able to connect to the internet. If, however, I plug it into the routers "Internet" port, I am unable to communicate with the bridge. Whenever I try to access the wired router's configuration utility( it asks for a password lets me access the main menu, but then I lose connection to the setup utility and have to reset the modem to be able to do the same thing again. This last issue only began to occur after I decided to plug the D-Link Bridge directly into my computer.

I realize that this is a rather extensive list of problems but help on any one of them would be great. I also realize that there are other ways to do this with different equipment, but different equipment is not free (The wired router was given to me) So if anyone knows anything that could get these working for me I would really appreciate it.

I have a D-Link Wireless Router in my basement office that's connected to my cable modem. I also have a D-Link 8-port gigabit switch connected to the wireless router. Over the last few years I have wired many rooms in my house that all connect into the gigaswitch. Everything works fine. I am also using WEP encryption on the wireless router.

I now have the need to extend the wireless capability to an upstairs room, but cannot seem to get a reliable signal that will stay connected. I decided to try and plug an older D-Link Wireless Access point device (DWL-1000AP) into the wired RJ-45 ethernet jack in the room. I went through the 'successful' install of the 1000AP and my wireless devices seem to recognizes it as an access point -along with the wireless router in my basement office. I used WEP encryption again on the 1000AP device - same key.

However, whenever I try to connect to that 1000AP I cannot get connected. It simply will not connect to the 1000AP device which is sitting just a few feet from my wireless device/computer.

Why won't it connect? One possible theory I've thought of is that I have one wireless point (the 1000AP) connected into another wireless point - both using the same WEP encryption and security key value. Is this the probable issue? Is what I'm trying to do, well doable? Or, am I way off base here? Is there another way to do this?

Any help would be appreciated.


BTW, I'm using WinXP Pro SP2.

A:Wireless Access Point Connected to Wireless Router??

You should be able to connect. If you configure the access point with no security, does it connect then? That's the way to narrow this down.

Remember, you need to use the hex keys for WEP, not the passcode, since that's not always 100% reliable.

I am just getting the nerve to start my home network. I have a laptop and desktop both physically connected to a wireless router. I have 2 desktops downstairs that have wireless antennas/recievers. All computers are XP Home.

I want to network, and I have bought a "network for dummies" book. It does not tell me how to go about making sure I configure everything right.

Do I "add a network place," "set up a home or small office network," or "set up a wireless network" first?

Anyhelp to get started would be appreciated. Also, can I make it secure so no-one can just add themselves to my network?

Thank you so much.

You are better off forgetting all the wizards and following a home networking guide that does not use them.

You can find them from Google or these very forums.

I've read several posts here that come close to my issue but don't describe it exactly.

Yesterday on my personal laptop (Dell E1505 running XP SP3), I got a message box saying something about port forwarding and that I wouldn't be able to get to my website, or something like that. Unfortunately, I didn't pay much attention to the message and dismissed it. Now, I can't get to the internet using wireless. Here are some details:
Another laptop connects to my wireless network and the internet just fine
All was working fine on the Dell until I got that message
I've checked the event log and can't find anything relevant around the time of the message
Connecting to the network/internet with ethernet cable works fine.
I'm definitely connected to my wireless network because I was able to open shared files on another PC
Other, likely non-related issues:

I'm having a little problem with the hard drive and will need to run chkdsk
Sometimes I get an error regarding the display adapter driver.

I have a belkin wireless/wired router, and it's really starting to stress me out. I have the wireless part working just fine, all my wireless computers connect to each other/the internet just fine. BUT, my wired computer is not connecting to the internet at all, but the DHCP is still assigning it an IP address and the computer thinks everything is fine. When I click on Internet Explorer, it says that the page cannot be displayed. It's driving me mad, can anyone help?

My computer (an HP Pavilion running Windows XP Pro) has no problems connecting to and then using other wireless networks not in my apartment, but when I try to go on our wireless, it tells me I'm connected, the signal is amazing, etc, but I can't actually get anywhere online. But when I'm plugged in to the router, I have no problems accessing the web. The other computers (Macs) in the apartment have no problem accessing the wireless in the same spot as my computer, and accessing the web.

We just installed a new router because we were having problems with the old one. (The new one is an Airport Extreme.) However, I was having this problem with the old router as well.

I saw a similar question to mine posted earlier today, but I checked my wireless properties, and I have checked off (and it's been checked off) the option to optain an IP address and a DHCP server automatically.

I called HP and they had me do the usual - unplug the router, the modem, restore manual settings by hitting F10, make sure Windows Zero Configuration (I think that's the name) was running. Nothing doing.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Edited to add: I saw another post with the same problem, and successfully reset my Winsock to the default, but when I tried resetting the other thing (the TCP/IP settings), it didn't show that it had worked, it simply started another prompt...

I'm using a D-Link DI-713p router to network two XP machines (wired) and two wireless laptops, one with XP and one with Windows 2000. Electricity went out for about 20 minutes, and when it returned, neither of the WIRED computers were properly connecting to the internet. One of them (XP Home) still sensed a network connection, while the other (XP Pro) claims "A network cable has been unplugged." Neither can connect to the internet or any networked files.

Any support whatsoever would be appreciated-- I'm stumped.

I bought a new laptop and I can't get it to establish a wireless connection. The network appears to be detected with maximum bars but when I try to connect, I get an error message "Windows was unable to connect to NETWORK". The strange thing is my old laptop can connect while this one can't. I've tried a bunch of things but it still doesn't work. I've disabled my WEP security and it still doesn't work. I made sure my router and wireless card had the most recent firmware/drivers and it still didn't work. Now I'm at a loss for what to do so I hope you guys can help me.

I have an 8 port "wired" router from Linksys that I have been using in conjunction to a wireless access point which had been plugged into one of the open ports on the wired router. Lately I have been having connection issues with the WAP so I decided it may be time to upgrade. Not thinking about it, I picked up a new Linksys E1000 wiress router (as opposed to a WAP) and, after a lengthy support call with Linksys, got that up and running.

So I have operability for both wired and wireless devices, however I have noticed a substantial slow down on my wired devices. I also just upped the plan with my ISP to increase my bandwidth which I see on the wired PCs but not on the wireless which seem less. Would a WAP be faster than a wireless router by nature?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Have you made sure you have the latest firmware for the wireless router? If you updated the firmware be sure to reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

What speeds do you get with a test such as speedtest.net with a connection to the wired router? With an ethernet connection to the wireless router? With a wireless connection?

I am a novice when it comes to networking so please help me out...
I am connecting Netgear wireless router (wgr614 v5) to an already placed router on the network (Nortel Networks Router). I am having trouble with wireless router because the Nortel router is DHCP disabled. Please if someone could help me, I would greatly appreciate. Please, explain step by step how to configure the wireless router to work with Nortel router.

P.S. The Nortel router cannot be DHCP enabled...I have DSL coming to Nortel router. So, Nortel is the primary router. Nortel router can't be removed because it is required by my company that I use it to connect to their network over the internet.

Thanks for your help!
