Android phone connected to WIFI thru virtual router but unable to browse or download.

Q: Android phone connected to WIFI thru virtual router but unable to browse or download.

My Lenovo a 516 connects to the virtual hotspot (my pc), but it doesn't actually receive any data. I can't browse or download.

I have a WIFI dongle (wireless usb nano adapter) connected to my pc, which i think works fine. The problem is with pc's settings because i tried this with 2 phones and outcome was the same.

I do not have much knowledge about how these things work and might have messed up some settings (ip, dns mask- all those things they as u to change,, on youtube).

Kindly help me rectify this..

PS: When i connected the phone after installing the dongle very first time it worked just fine, i was able to browse and download. Now. Then the wifi fan symbol in my phone showd 2 arrows, both sending and receiving data. Now when i open the browser and try entering any site it shows only upward arrow and thats it.

Preferred Solution: Android phone connected to WIFI thru virtual router but unable to browse or download.

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.

1- Win10 Pro V1607 connected via WIFI (5ghz)

All Network shares are set, Password Protected Sharing is turned off, on all systems. All PCs open/view/share folders and files as expected between all PCs.

Before install Anniversary Update on 2 PCs, I could Copy files from my Mot Android Turbo 2 phone (connected via WIFI (5GHZ or 2.4Ghz) using Asus File Manager Ap, to any shared PC folders on my network.

After Installing AU 1607 on 2 of the PCs on my network, I can now only copy file to my Windows Home V.1511 PC. All others are requesting User and Passwords for access. Again, Password Protected Sharing is turned off on all PCs....

i'm just a newbie and i could really use some help.

my dsl and wifi were working perfectly well until the system suddenly broke down on me 2 days ago.

i use a tenda 5M wireless broadband router model w541r, connected to a dsl service provider (pldt) and work on 2 laptops an old twinhead e12kt running windows XP, and a newer toshiba satellite m305d-s430 running windows vista.

basic problem now is that i can connect but am unable to browse (unable to resolve host) using my wifi router but am able to connect and browse with my laptop connected directly to the dsl modem.

the router is working prefectly fine however otherwise (i can connect using the router ip address and adjust router settings). my router has always been set to auto-detect settings and had been without any problems previously. i have tried releasing, renewing, and rebooting, and connecting and disconnecting my router and dsl.

after browsing some forums, i've tried fiddling with my ipconfig

here is how it looks like connected to my wifi router

I am using windows 7 and having problem using WiFi. I can connect to WiFi and browse/download mails in outlook/windows live mail (I have configured both).

However after every few minutes, I am not able to browse internet and
connection to outlook/live mail is also dropped - The WiFi connection shows it is still connected.

To reconnect I have to disconnect WiFi manually and connect it ? it becomes irritating when streaming videos or listening to music on-line.

This problem arises only in my nearby library where I go to study. Otherwise my laptop is working fine in my home network or caf? and free hotspots like mcdonalds/kfc.

Any help/suggestions appreciated..


A:WiFi is connected but cant browse or download mail in outlook

how strong is the library wireless signal - sounds like thats the issue
try running xirrus and see the strength of the signal and monitor with the graph and see if it drops below -70

run at your home so you can see how it works

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

Wi-Fi Inspector | Xirrus
Direct link to the program is here Wi-Fi Inspector Confirmation

{If the above link does not work heres another link Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector | PCWorld}

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need will need to have NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.
On windows 8 - (i do not have windows 8) but, it would appear that, When you first try to run, you may get a message that .net framework is needed, and included in that message is a link to download/install.

Run the program

I had posted this question in a few android/phone based forums and unfortunately no one there that can offer a solution. Hence, I joined here and looking for a solution and I am sure it is doable as one of my other phone is able to do it so basically it must be something to do with the settings on the phone or installing an additional pieve of software or app. Here is the question....

I am trying to connect to my office wifi which uses a proxy server.

Scenario 1: I am using Samsung Bada (wave 1), connected to the internet successfully and also any applications that require an internet connection including Samsung's app store.

While, connecting via open networks like home wifi and other friends' wifi also worked without any issue.

Scenario 2: Now I also have an android based Galaxy pocket: even after entering all the required proxy setting as mentioned above, I can access websites via browser but cannot access samsung's app store, google's play store, skype, sipdroid etc.,

I know it is nothing to do with the network administration as I am still accessing via my samsung wave but not via android. Please help me in identifying what I am missing. Is there anything like a network profile I need to assign for these applications?

A android phone needs to be urgently connected to my Neat gear WGR614v7 router.
​After putting WPA2 password in the wi-fi section of the phone, the phones wi-fi continually tries to connect to the router. Some times the phone gets connected to the router.
But there are frequent outages at my place. So after an outage the phone again gets disconnected. Even if the signal strength is strong it keeps on saying checking network status, connecting and then disconnected and starts all over again. The phone then never seems to connect again to the router.
The Net gear router hardware version is V7 and the firmware version is V2.0.30_2.0.30.
Please give a solution as soon as possible.

Thank You.

I've tried 2 different file transfer software and neither of them work. I've tried Android file transfer and nothing recognizes that dang phone. I even switched cables to make sure that wasn't the problem. All software is up to date on the Mac and the phone. I have to be doing something wrong.

Hi, I have an Android's phone which can share its internet connection through wifi (as usual). It worked fine for three months since my last message, but not now. Maybe because of some automatic system update ? The laptop's WIFI connection is fine, it works on every spot. But when I share my phone's connection, the laptop see the network, connects to it but I don't have internet access. It says "No internet, secured" and I see the WIFI icon with a yellow exclamation point. I checked Lenovo Support website, with my configuration (Ideapad 710S Plus-13IKB Laptop) but no WLAN driver seems to be missing. So I'm a bit lost :-/ Thanks for your help.

This is my setup:

1. I have a internet gateway(modem/router combo Super G) in the living room. I am using U-verse.
2. I have desktop that has a USB wireless n adapter in my room.
3. Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, Norton internet security 2012
Here is my issue:

When my android phone connects to the router by turning on wifi mode, my computer loses its connection, but the phone connects and works fine.
This only happens when I turn wifi on near the computer, or turn wifi on and enter in my room. When the devices are somewhat far apart, the computer doesn't lose its connection. For example, turing wifi on in the living room and stay there, my computer stay connected.
And it happens only when I use a USB wireless n adapter. A USB wireless g adapter doesn't show this problem.
By the way, my android phone is wifi b,g,n compatible.

To test, I turned my laptop on, which is wifi b,g,n compatible, next to my desktop computer and both worked fine. However, when I turn wifi on on my phone, my desktop loses it connection, but my laptop stay connected.

I've check the ip on all the devices, and the devices show different ip addresses so, the router assigned or recognized the devices correctly, I would assume.

So, what seems be the problem? Does anyone know? Thanks.

Hello guys,

I had my phone working on my home network, but after wiping it to try a new ROM, I cannot connect back to my Win8 network.

Previously I was on a Homegroup on 5 PC's in my home... all the same local user account name and NO password.

Now I get a Login Failure message on my phone which lists some things that could be at fault, but none seem right. Ive been trying to change sharing options on my main PC to see if that helps, but it doesnt.

My phone "sees" the main computer when I do a LAN server scan, but clicking on the found server the error says it may be caused by: "WiFi is off, SMB server is out of network scope, The IP is invalid, Blocked by the firewall, SMB service is off" None of which I think are correct since I have not changed anything on the pcs up till now.

Any ideas?

Hi Guys,

No luck trying to access Windows (SMB) file shares on Windows 7 PC on my LAN from my Samsung Galaxy S7 (Android) phone. Tried using Solid Explorer, Astro and Network Browser - all apps return 'connection failure'.

Here is how my Windows LAN and VPN looks:

Have operational LAN with several Windows PC's.
Using Dynamic IP with DDNS service configured.
Windows file shares I like to access are on Windows 7 PC running Home Premium.
Local IP of this PC: 192.168.1.X - Hostname: GigaServer.
Windows 7 PC requires regular Windows authentication using User name and Password. This works fine.
I can ping the Windos 7 PC Local IP address fine as well as its DDNS name.
Running Norton Security Firewall with port forwarding set-up properly.
I have an OpenVPN Server set-up on my Netgear Router and I can access resources on my LAN properly using OpenVPN Clients on several Windows Laptops.
Also configured OpenVPN client on my Samsung GalaxyS7 Phone without any problems. The VPN clients connects properly.
On the Windows side everything works fine. I can reach Windows File Shares on the target Windows 7 PC and open them via Windows Explorer on any remote Windows PC.

Tried to use Solid Explorer, Astro and Network Browser Apps on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Smartphone to connect to the SMB File Shares but all return 'connection failure'. The Apps do not find the Windows 7 Host on my LAN - using either Hostname or Local IP Address (192.168.1.X).

I'm trying to cast from my android phone to my windows 10 pc.
I've found a number of articles that say that the windows "anniversary" update installed an app called "connect" which will do this.
Now my last update was 1 Oct 2016. When i ran the Anniversary updated it did nothing. So i guess it's because all my updates are later.
However, i do not have the connect app.
How can I ;
a) either install the aniversay update
b) get the Connect app
c) cast my android another way that doesn't involve 3rd party add ons etc etc.

This has been an ongoing problem since a computer upgrade last October. It is intermittent, which makes this difficult to diagnose.

When I connect, (dial-up modem)I appear to connect , when I click on the icon in the systray, the status says I am connected - but no web pages come up. I get the usual Page Cannot Be Displayed message. I disconnect and immediately re-connect - and everything is fine - I can browse. This might happen several times a week but not everytime I connect.

A couple of weeks ago it reached the stage that I could not browse at all. As I needed the computer for some urgent work I decided to take it to my tech place as being the quickest way to get back online and as I could not connect I could no longer access this site. What a joke. It was 10 days before I got the computer back. First they said perhaps I had spyware. I said no, I run several programs to ensure I do not. Then it was the modem, then they said not the modem, then they said they would have to re-format. If I had known that was what it was going to end up as, I could have done it myself.

When I finally got to pick it up, they said I did need a new modem after all.I wonder.

They still haven't a clue what the problem was. Now, after using the computer for 3 days , it is starting again. This morning I could not browse until I had disconnected and re-connected. Then in the middle of a session, it stopped finding pages, then a few minutes later, everything was fine again.

A:Connected to internet but unable to browse

Run some scans with general AV softwares, and it wouldn't harm to post a HJT log to the malware removal forum just to make sure the issue isn't malware related. If it isn't malware, try resetting the router. If this dosen't work, try disabling your network adapter and re-enabling. If none of these work, run CMD as an administrator, type in ipconfig /release, hit enter and wait. Then ipconfig /flushdns, after this, ipconfig /renew. One of these should help your problem. If not, nothing else comes to mind and I'm sorry that I cannot assist further.
EDIT: Make sure to do the CMD commands in that order, wait for them to complete each time.

I upgraded my OS from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate. When all was done and over, updates installed and so on I upgraded the Internet Explorer as well from IE 8 (included in the Win 7 install) to IE 9 (I used to have IE 9 before on Vista). A little bit after that I had to uninstall re-install the VPN client for my work and things started going south.
Currently after I start the computer the MSN Messenger is not working, the Yahoo messenger is not working, IE, Firefox and Chrome are not working.
IE just hangs, sometimes is displaying [<endif!>] but it seems to find the sites because I can see the icon of the page changing
Chrome is not able to connect even to google.com but it let's me down nicely (doesn't hog resources like IE does)
The Internet connection is fine because I can ping, I can connect to my work's VPN, sometimes even some https pages are briefly working.
Once I connect to the VPN everything works great.

Now comes the weird part after I connect to the VPN and disconnect, the browsers work, the IM works ... so something gets reset in that process and makes it fine but I have no idea what. (NOTE: IE9 is still barely moving - you request a page go get a snack and maybe it has loaded)

I have looked at numerous threads on different forums and I tried a lot of stuff but nothing seems to solve the problem.

A:Unable to browse or IM but connected to Internet

I upgraded my OS from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate.Click to expand...

That's a pretty expensive upgrade. Especially considering that you didn't do it until almost three years after Windows 7 was released. Why? And from where did you purchase it?

So my question is what happens when VPN gets started that makes it possible for me to browse even after I disconnect from it?Click to expand...

Usually a VPN will block all other networking (resembles a firewall in that regard) when it is running. When you exit from it, it should stop blocking other networking. That seems to be working. Sometimes just having a VPN installed, but not in use, will cause networking trouble. So I think that your question should be, "why is my networking blocked before I use the VPN?".

Maybe some startup program that prepares for a quick start when you access the VPN? Maybe a firewall or security suite that is corrupted or mis-configured but somehow gets "fixed" by the VPN? Maybe something about just having the VPN installed that we won't be able to figure out?

I am using a Dell Latitude E6400 Laptop and have been wirelessly connected to our home internet for several years without any problems. However, of late I have been having problems browsing despite my connection being OK and signal being very good. I am able to still listen to music on spotify, as well as chat on facebook, but cannot load web pages or search for anything on youtube/google etc. I use google chrome but experience the same problem on IE.

I have checked whether it is a problem with malware and have removed all threats, but still the problem persists. the only way I have found of temporarily fixing it is disabling the wireless and reconnecting, whereby it will work perfectly again for anything between 5-50 minutes.

I have not changed my router recently so do not think that is the issue. I'm beginning it may just be a hardware fault with the laptop!

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Firstly let me apologise if this question is repeated elsewhere but I could not find anything identical to it.

I have an Acer laptop and connect from this to the internet via a CDMA connection provided by the local (I live in Thailand) version of a Novatel MiFi 2200 modem. This works just fine for internet browsing and I simultaneously use P2P software to download UK TV stuff.

I also have a wired network in my house and on this I have a 3Gb NAS drive. There is a wireless router on the network but I am outside of it's range.

When I connect the network cable to connect to the NAS drive, I am no longer able to browse the internet. BUT the P2P software still carries on working as before. So therefore my laptop is still connected to the internet via the Wifi network.

So why does my browser think otherwise. Normally I use Google Chrome but I have also tried IE and this suffers from the same fate.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Alright, so this is my dilemma. I am connected to the internet through a wired connection. I am also setting up a wireless printing network. Here is the problem, whenever I connect to the wireless router so that I can share my printer, I cannot browse on the internet. The vista network logo on the toolbar also loses the "earth" in the symbol, but yet says that I am connected to local and internet.

Now what really confuses me is that I can still use AIM, but yet both firefox and IE does not connect to the internet. As soon as I disconnect from the Wireless network, my internet comes right back. I have searched for hours on this and could not find much other than changing my metric setting, which also didn't change anything. I believe it is a vista setting, because others with the same basic setup, except for the fact that they have XP, can still connect to the WiFi and browse the internet through the LAN.

A:Solved: Cannot browse the internet wired when connected to a separate WiFi

The direct solution to your problem is to assign a static IP address (make sure it is outside the wireless router Dhcp server's address range) and mask, leaving the Gateway and DNS blank.

Windows XP defaults to the wired connection when multiple Gateways are specified, which may explain why the other PCs do not have the same problem.

There is a reason why you need to use two different networks?

Hello:I've been having an issue with my Dell XPS Desktop (Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V Ethernet card).
When I connect this server to my router by an ethernet cable, all other other computers connected (Hardwired or Wifi connected) disconnect themselves from the internet. I get the same response when I connect to the Wireless Wifi as well.
It happens only with this Desktop running Windows 10.
I was told to change the DNS address to the OPENDNS Addresses - I tried and I had no luck. I do not have the Ethernet card or the Desktop in powersave mode. They do not go to sleep when idle.
Can someone please make any suggestions. Any input from your end would be very much appreciated.

Please help, this is to strange for me to understand

I have a external usb wireless device which has a strong wireless conection to my D-link wireless dsl router. The PC which is connected by cable can browse, and connect to router setup page.

The wireless PC is able to ping the router as soon as I change the TCP/IP settings to manual within the routers range eg.
( also set as default gateway, don't know what value to put in DNS fields), but still unable to browse or get onto router setup page.
As soon as i change the settings to automatic config, wireless stays connected but unable to ping router, as computer makes own ip way of router range.

I need to get wireless pc to talk to router urgently please

A:wireless signal strong and connected, unable to browse

Sounds like the DHCP isn't enabled on the router.

Logs onto it and take a look around, there should be an option in the menus.

What model is the D-Link?

Ok, so I've been trying for most of the day to fix these issues to no avail, and I've done something that's apparently made it worse. I'll do my best to include everything that might help.

Basically, my internet claims to be connected (via wire to router, computer isn't wireless enabled.) but when I open a browser (I normally use Chrome but no browser is working) it came up with the Error 105 no matter what address I try to access.

So far, I have tried resetting my router and waiting, using cmd to reset winsock and resetlog, I've fiddled with some of the proxy settings and immediate downloads. Of course, I'm not entirely certain what half of those things have done, but nothing seems to have worked properly. I've uninstalled all of the firewall/anti-virus programs I had installed, which hasn't changed anything either.

I have had the 'connected but not connected' issue before since it happens quite often, but usually I disable it, restart the computer and just connect again, then it'll work - but this time it hasn't.

I noticed in a lot of threads it helps to have the information given from ipconfig/all, so I've copied out what I get from that below.

* I've just noticed that the host name has changed to STACYSC, when it's not supposed to be. I think this is from me attempting to connect to a wireless connection before I realised it wasn't enabled - could this be an issue?

I have a Dell 9200 (4GB ram) just did a clean install of W7 64bit.

All went OK ... but now in a strange position ... it can browse internet no problem, get to any any sites ... but will not download anything ?
When I click on download .. normal download box opens but nothing in the 'download To' or' Transfer rate' fields. Eventually they time out and drop.
The top bar of download window shows 0% and does not change.

And nothing is ever downloaded.

Tried several sites nothing will download.
It has however downloaded many windows updates and installed them, so it must be able to get data OK..

Only thing other than standard install is after OS loaded I moved the default user profile location (as per tech doc here)
I have tried different ports on router .. and even swapped ports & cables of PC's that are working ... still dame .. browses happily, but no downloads.

First thing I want to download is anti-virus ... cant even download Kaspersky file.

On network & sharing .. it shows that connected to LAN ... and if I open the LA icon .. it does show as active and happily sending & receiving

I could start again and do install again ... but to save time is there anything I can do here ?

1. Have you tried a different browser to see if the issue persists.

2. Review local firewall settings.

I have recently set up a home network using a Netgear DG834G router and my Dell Inspirion 510m wireless laptop refuses to connect to the Internet via IE6 whether connected to the router wirelessly or wired. This laptop is used in the office where it works just fine through a proxy server on the wired LAN. When used at home I either switch off the proxy server or use a different profile which does not have a proxy server, but so far no joy.

I have had various bits of advice and it would appear that the settings are right but I would be happy to receive any suggestions as I am desperate to solve this problem - it was the reason I purchased a wireless notebook & router.

I have one of those motherboards which has an AC WiFI Adapter built on it... http://images.anandtech.com/doci/827...-ITX%20Top.jpg

That one to be exact.
Now I've followed these steps;

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=NAME key=PASSWORD
netsh wlan start hostednetwork

Putting those into CMD and it comes up fine as told in the tutorial.
The problem comes however in turning sharing on, this then turns my internet on the Ethernet port off, it'll say something like it being limited and stays on Unidentified Network forever on that Ethernet port. As soon as I turn sharing off on the Virtual Wifi connection I've made, the Ethernet internet then goes back to normal and I gain internet access again.

This is obviously useless because I need the internet through the Ethernet to be able to setup a Virtual WiFi Hotspot thingy.

Can anyone help?

A:Need help trying to set up a Virtual WiFi Router...

Anyone use this?

Windows 7 Virtual Wifi Router
I ran it and when I hit Configure/View Comodo told me that it was trying to have full access of my keyboard.

Is this a Trojan?

A:Virtual wifi Router ... Is this a virus or trojan?

Windows 7 Virtual Wi-Fi router is a software emulation of the wi-fi adapter which is present in your computer.

This is not a Trojan. The purpose of this virtual Wi-Fi router is to allow you to create a wi-fi hotspot from your computer so that nearby computers may connect to it for internet access. If you already have a wi-fi router in your home then you don't need it. This will come in handy when you have a cable connection for internet and wants to give wireless access to other systems in your home.

If you have installed it from internet, you may uninstall it from Control Panel - Programs and Features. Otherwise you may disable it in Device Manager.

Hi there,

I use a small usb modem for my internet access and using a usb wifi adaptor and a virtual wifi router I was able to share my internet around home quite affordably.

Every now and again the software 'virtualrouter' would cause a crash. Maybe once every 3 months.

When I updated to 8.1 the software no longer worked, nor did any other. What's more it cause a DPC-Watchdog violation within a few minutes.

When I say the software doesn't run, one of two things happen. My old program 'virtualrouter' runs as normal, but none of my devices can connect. The network is available, but connection is impossible.

With other programs I get told that the wifi adaptor is not enabled. Which it is.

Something has changed in the upgrade and I don't know what. Every option and test I've run and enabling of virtualisation says that it should work. But then the BSOD arrives.

Please help.
