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 think I can help... but your not being very clear.

As I understand it, you have a Wired Router which is connected to the Internet. You want to connect a Wireless Router and use it as a switch, to transmit the data from the wired router to 2 wireless laptops?

So it would look something like this:

Internet>Wired Router>Wireless Router>Laptops

Is that right?

Hi, I currently connect to the internet through a wired ethernet port in the wall which connects to my university's network.

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006PYGWG6

I don't know much about it but I was concerned because the Router Mode says 'cable connection only' and I'm not sure the connection is cable (is it ADSL?). Will I need anything else like a modem?

Any advice?

I need to solder a USB cable to a wireless GameStop PS3 controller. I have the circuit boards, control sticks, and buttons removed from the casing, but I can't for the life of me find out where to solder the USB cable wires to.

The controller was originally wireless, with a USB stick that plugged in to the system, but it has stopped functioning correctly and I was hoping to convert it to a wired controller to use in a PC application. I'm wiring toggle switches to some of the buttons and integrating them into a dashboard for a sim racing rig. There is a band of 10 wires connecting two parts of the controller circuit boards, but they are all white, not color-coded.

There is also a board about an inch long with what appears to be the wireless antenna wrapped in wire casing, and has 8 leads connecting to the main circuit board. Any help is greatly appreciated. If this is impossible, please let me know. If it is possible, I'm more than happy to go through the inconveniences to get it working again instead of buying another controller. Thanks!

Ok, here's the deal. I have had this laptop since June. It has a normal ethernet port and a built in wireless ethernet adapter. I have been using roadrunner, wired, for about three years. I've decided to take advantage of the built in wireless adaptor on my laptop. To do so, I've purchased a Motorla Wireless Access Point.

I've plugged the Access Point into an electrical outlet, I've plugged the ethernet cord from the Access Point into the ethernet outlet the laptop used to be plugged into. I then unplugged the ethernet cable I had been using to connect to the internet up to this point. Now, the ethernet jack on the wall goes to a Linksys Router which is connected to the outside with a cable modem.

So, I turn my laptop on, configure the IP settings to what the PDF file said they should be, and rebooted. So Windows XP then indicated that the Wireless Adaptor in the laptop had connected to a wireless network. So far so good. But even though Windows said it was connected, IE wouldn't connect to anything.

So I looked further in the PDF file and went to the Access Point's config page and set it the way the PDF said to. I think I change a security setting. Anyway, after doing that and rebooting again, now not even Windows will tell me it's connected anymore, and I can't even get to the Access Point's config page anymore. I can't ping anything either.

And yes, I reset the main router, twice.

Hey all, I'm trying to turn my D-link wireless router into an access point. I heard that if you leave the Wan port empty, and simply plug into one of the Lan ports on the Router/Switch it can be turned into an access point. I tried doing this and disabled all security measures on my other wireless router, however have not had any luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have been asked by friends to help them reconfigure their computer system in the wake of transferring from internet access through a cable company and accompanying cable modem to access through a community wireless network. The wireless imposes new constraints on their equipment. It involves MAC address registration with the wireless system administration, thus requires a wireless adapter on each computer that is going to connect with the system directly. The network is unsecured except for the MAC address registration and uses an IP variable address series which happens to be 172.16.x.x. This results in competition with their previous home wireless file and printer sharing. Before consulting with them I would like to know if my understanding of the following scenarios is correct. I would appreciate any comments from Terry or other experts on the forum.

Scene 1. Husband has desktop A with wireless adapter registered with the community network system and can access the internet directly. He wants to be able to connect with a wireless printer. For this, my understanding is that he will need to connect thru an ethernet cable to a wireless access point. This needs to use a different IP address series, which happens to be 192.168.0.x, and is set staticly. The printer IP address is also set staticly. Both are a part of a secured home network workgroup. This is the proper configuration is it not, and should not interfere with the community network.

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.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Im sure this is something really simple but basically with my laptop i can connect to my router wirelessly fine but when connected via an ethernet cable web pages dont load although everything states its connected???
When you attempt to load a page the load bar starts to work in the bottom right hand corner to indicate its loading but doesnt go any further than halfway and never loads?
My security programme is ESET and have attempted disabling the personal firewall in the hope this may help but no joy.
Have tried another laptop connected up via ethernet cable and that laptop worked fine loading pages problem free??
To me this seems odd but could be relatively simple as it states connection, can be prooved to work fine on another laptop so it must be something on my laptop stopping it going any further??
Could anyone please lend some much needed advice pls? would be much appraciated
thanks

A:Can connect wireless but not via ethernet ?

Try these simple tests using the wired connection only with the wireless disconnected.
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

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.

This problem has confounded me.

1) Bought a new wireless router (it's a Corega CG-WLBARGNH router...I live in Japan).
2) Set it up fine with another laptop. On that laptop, both ethernet and wireless work great. On my HP Pavillion dv 1000 with Intel PRO/Wireless 2200bg...ethernet connects great, but wireless will not connect. Note the following:
a) The wireless router shows up fine on my list of available connections.
b) When I click to connect to the network, my computer just endlessly tries to connect..."waiting for network" even though the router is in the same room with me and showing full strength on my list of available networks.
c) I am able to connect to other wireless connections fine (though they happen to be my neighbors' unsecured networks)
d) I have updated my driver (as well as rolled it back). I have checked security settings multiple times (the router company suggested this). I have even fiddled with settings I probably shouldn't have (with the configuration of my driver or TCP/IP settings)
e) I have tried repairing my wireless connection at which point it says "Windows cannot finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Connecting to the wireless network". How helpful is that...

Hey, any advice at this point...I'll try it. I've been struggling for weeks in my free time to get this set up. At this point, I have no idea what to try.

Does anyone have any idea?? It must be some si... Read more

Try removing all the stored wireless profiles and searching for and connecting. The fact that it's not asking for a key indicates you may have an incorrect key stored.

I am lookin for some advice on a networking problem. I have a hp pc connected to the net thru an ethernet cable with a wirless router from talktalk and vista os. I have an advent laptop connected wireless to the same router. Both recieve and connect to the internet fine. My pc can find my laptop and transfer files from it thru public but my laptop does not recognise my pc nor the printer on it, any ideas as this is driving me mad.
 

A:wireless laptop and ethernet pc

You cannot see Vista PC in network on the laptop, correct.
What is the OS on the laptop?
Can you ping the PC from the laptop by IP and Name?
Do you have a password at sign on for laptop?
If Vista PC has "Password protected sharing" on, you will need to set up an account on it with laptop's User name and password.
What is the exact make/model of router?
Make/model of both compuetrs?
What firewalls are you using on both machines?
Have you tried connecting with the firewalls turned off?

i have had a bad relationship with at&t i'm getting really tired of it so i had the idea of getting verison, unforunetly they don't offer any service where i live, i saw an ad for verison broadband network, that comes with a netbook. i had the idea of getting that deal, and pay $30 a month rather than $100 for this crappy At&t connection. i though that i could could uplink/bridge the broadband and ethernet internet into our houses Ethernet/wireless router. i have been working on it with my computer, this is my set up. i have my wireless pc connected to the router. i have an ethernet port on the back, witch i have connected to another wireless wrouter, were a laptop then connects to that router, i know that sometimes the router won't uplink the signal, i have a fios router that has a WLAN connection aside from the Coaxe connection. both should allow incomming connections. so give me some guidence, i'll take anything. thanks for all your help, thank you.

A friend brought over a computer for me to remove a virus, after checking out the computer found that the OS was hosed. So backed up data, and put a fresh istall of XP pro on the PC, legal copy not bootlegged. Couldn't get ethernet working, figured since he did have a several nasty viruses, I'd flash the BIOS, and right 0's to the drive just to make sure no nasties were still on the machine. All said and done, reinstalled XP Pro, on an Emachine T2862. Installed drivers. Installed a pci 3Com ethernet card, with the right drivers. No ethernet, cant get an IP, tried using a good static IP didn't conect to the internet, couldn't ping the router. Plugged in a Linksys wireless usb adapter, grabbed an IP right away. Tryied plugging the ethernet in, ethernets get IP's now, unplug usb and ethernet stops working. Plugged usb back in did all of the windows updates, including hardware. Tried Ethnet with the new drivers, still doesn't work. Tried Winsock fix, tried XP bat fix. Any other suggestions, I'm stuck.

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?

hi i just bought a new laptop with windows 7 os. i dont know why but my ethernet (MARVELL YUKON 88E8055 PCI-E GIGABIT ETHERNET CONTROLLER) connection speed is just about the same as my wireless (INTEL WIFI LINK 5100 AGN) i am so confused why my ethernet connection is so slow. With my older computers, ethernet was at least 2x faster...

A:Wireless and ethernet speeds are the same pls help

I'm afraid i don't know anythinge else about your setup.
Is the wireless router connected directly to the Ethernet router? are they combined? what are the brand and product names?
is this DSL, Cable, or Optical Fiber internet?

also, could it be that the other two computers were limited wirelessly to the speed of a WIfI G network, while both the router and the new computer are WiFi n compatible?

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?
