Verizon FIOS unable to connect to internet also real slow to connect

Q: Verizon FIOS unable to connect to internet also real slow to connect

Just got off the phone with Verizon. They had me push the reset button and I was able to connect to the internet again. I mentioned how slow it takes for pages to load. She said if I have two firewalls running that can happen, then eventually it blocks your internet connection. I have the free Avira and am only using the Windows Firewall. She said the Verizon router has a firewall but it's a low security. So I went on the internet was able to get on some sites, but then others wouldn't connect again, said there is no internet connection. All the lights on the router are on. So far it's still working, but this is what happened before when I lost my connection completely.

I have Windows XP, tried it both on IE 8 and Firefox. The router is an Actiontec MI42WR. The problem was with both my desktop and laptop wired connections.

Hi Everyone.
My boyfriend's office just moved and at the new office they now have verizon fios as their internet provider. He hooks his laptop into the wall outlet and cannot get onto the interent. It says the page cannot be found. Everyone else in the office can get the internet and his wall jack was tested saying that the internet is being received. I looked at his settings and everything looks normal. The network conncections says the lan line is connected, enabled, and firewalled. I hit repair but still no internet page displays. This a windows xp system. Before the move, my boyfriend would hook up to their verizon dsl system and get interent. At my office he can hook up to our comcast system and get the interent. Also we have a linksys wireless router at my work and I have the adapter on his laptop and that works at my work too. They said at his work they have verizon wireless with the fios but our linksys adapter does not pick up their verizon wireless signal either. We have tried to add a new lan connection and spoke to verizon techs on the phone but no one knows why it is not diplaying a page!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!

We had FIOS installed on Monday, and though all our regular devices connected just fine to it, my HP CP1525nw Color Wifi Laser printer will not. I have the M1424WR Rev I ActionTec router from Verizon.

Have run the HP setup utility for the printer numerous times and it only completed the first time. But after entering my credentials for the new network, it failed on me. And ever since then I cannot get it to complete the setup. It fails on me every time. In order to run the setup for wifi, I connect a USB cable from my printer to my XPS 17. But no matter, it doesn't work. Also tried connecting an Ethernet cable from the printer to one of the ports on the router but nothing happened. Also looked at my router settings, but could see no place to update anything related to the printer.

So I turn to the tech support guy site, because after scouring manuals and HP forums, I am no closer to figuring this out and right now my printer is an expensive paperweight. Yeah, I guess that I could use the USB connection but that doesn't seem to work either.

All I know is that the printer is giving me a 169.xx address, which is not on my subnet. It needs to be 192.168 something.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am a Verizon FIOS user, have been for about 2 years. I have multiple Verizon emails accounts which up until about 3 months ago I never had any problems downloading/uploading msgs via OUTLOOK EXPRESS on my PCs.

Starting November of last year however, I constantly get "stuck" trying to connect to any/some/all of my Verizon mailboxes via either OUTLOOK EXPRESS or via a program called MAILWASHER.

Both MAILWASHER and OE used to be able to connect to the Verizon mail server and initiate downloads/uploads to my accounts in seconds. Now however, almost every time I try to connect to get my mail, one or several of the mailboxes gets stuck and times out. Sometimes they all work fine. Most of the time one or another get stuck. So I have to keep stopping then reinitiating the mail connections to eventually get my mail, over and over again.

Note that I have 2 different PCs with the exact same problem. Also that I have a Yahoo business mail account also defined for both OE and MAILWASHER and that account NEVER has a problem - it is only with trying to download the Verizon emails.

Whatever the problem is it appears to be related to Verizon FIOS itself or their mail servers. I have asked Verizon for help and it was a complete waste of time. I have also posted on a FIOS related forum (back in November) but have still not been able to figure this out, although someone else there said they were having the same problem.

I get errors like this in OE:

Hello,

I have a Verizon Mifi Jetpack that I am unable to connect to using Windows 10 Enterprise. If I reimage the same machine with Windows 10 Pro it connects just fine.

When attempting to connect it hangs at "Checking network requirements..." and never returns. Never gives an error and never prompts for a password. If I manually create the network profile for the wireless connection I am able to connect.

Steps tried to resolve issue:

1. Tried switching from 2.4GHz to 5GHz on Mifi
2. Tried switching authentication protocols on Mifi (WPA2 AES, WPA2 TKIP etc..)
3. Tried deploying Windows 10 Enterprise on different machines. Same issue (Surface Book w/ Marvell NIC; Dell Laptop w/ Intel NIC)
4. Tested with updated drivers on the laptop with an Intel NIC.

Any ideas on this one? I've tried doing netmon and netsh traces and procmon traces but I can't seem to spot anything.


Thank you for your time.

Hello guys,

I have just finished my very first computer build and am rather happy with most things.

Unfortunately I am having problems connecting to the internet.

I have a temporary dongle in place and because it's my only option for about a month I kinda need it to work.

When I first connected it I found my connection and I successfully connected, I downloaded Google Chrome and Steam, then unfortunately it randomly stopped working.

Where the strength bar should of been, there was a large red cross, when I found my connection it read "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network." I Googled this and people said delete your connection and reconnect, that didn't work, so then I tried to set my security type to something different or off as recommended in a solved post, the problem persisted.

Now after restarting my computer several times it sometimes rejects my password, or comes up with the "the settings for the network..." and on rare occasions it connects then 5 minutes later comes up wit my original problem.

I have tried resetting my connection details as what is saved on my laptop and mac and they don't work either.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Regards, Lee.

Hi,

Verizon DSL

Problem:
I just installed Verizon DSL a month ago and this has occurred about 5 or 6 times....latest was this afternoon.
(I leave my computer running all the time). An hour ago I went to the computer, and wanted to update, (as an example) my Ad-aware....I open Ad-aware, click on "Check for Updates Now" and it freezes, clicking "X" does nothing, even using Task Manager does not close it. Now the same happens with any other Program (Spybot, SpywareGuard, SpywareBlaster, etc)...they simply cannot connect to their servers. This is basically the problem.

Also, I was not able to get IE, Firefox or the MSN Browsers to connect during this time....so, generally speaking, I could not connect to the Internet or Program Servers.

I just got off the phone with Verizon and they say everything looks ok from their end, so they could not come up with a solution except to say that maybe I have "too many Programs running" (does that make sense?), I never had this problem with dialup (that's why I mentioned Verizon in the thread title).

Temporary Fix:
When this happens, I cannot Restart by going to Start>Turn Off Computer>Restart. I get as far as "Restart" then nothing happens. However, if I do a power down using the POWER OFF button on the tower and totally shut off the computer, everything returns to normal upon restarting and the Programs are able to connect.

I have the Verizon Fios 25 down / 25 upload package. I get around 30 down / 2 up in actuality. When I had the tech guy over he reset my router to default, and even replaced my ONT. When he tried it out I got around 30/15, which honestly was good enough for me and let him go. Not ten minutes later the speeds went back to 30/2(or even worse). I'm at a loss for what to do. This happens on multiple computers as well, not just one.

Hello!

SO...

I have a wireless G adapter installed in my HTPC. The router i'm using is the Verizon FIOS router b/g/n NOT the quantum. With this G adapter max is 54Mbps but i'm only getting 13Mbps down and 14Mbps up. The other devices that I have running off wireless (2 iPads) get 59Mbps Up and 65Mbps Down. My questions is this:

I believe that the wireless adapters in the iPads are wireless N hence why i'm getting kick [email protected]@ speed from both the iPads. I figure I would get a Wireless N adapter for my HTPC as well since the current G is very slow.

BUT, the thing that bothers me is why am I not getting the 54mbps on the HTPC then? Is there something I may have done incorrectly to get those lousy speed or, Is it just that G adapter?

Once I upgrade to the N adapter, will my speeds be the same or better then my iPads if I do switch from G to N?

I'm looking to upgrade to the TP-Link TL-WN851ND Wireless n300 with the dual antenna.

I wish I could hook up the HTPC wired but that's not possible at the moment.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You in advance.

I have verizon Fios internet service. Here's a screen shot of my cellphone, using wifi and a screenshot of my computer using ethernet cable and actiontec powerline network adapters.
How can I change the ethernet speed to match the wifi speed?

A:verizon Fios: wifi and ethernet, 2 different internet speeds

FIOS is the best Internet service available in the US and you are lucky to have it. The discrepancy between wired & wireless throughput is legendary and there are lots of comments about it. In general the cause is obscure in most cases - wireless throughput is subject to all sorts of issues that are not present with a wired connection. In general you should not expect wireless speeds to match wired speeds - there are just too many variables in play with wireless. For instance, a fish tank can suck up wireless signals like a sponge, as can a steel beam or a large flatscreen TV.

Soooo hopefully someone can assist me because talking to someone from Verizon doesn't seem to help neither does speaking to the VOIP provider RingCentral. I have Verizon Fios internet with their G1100 router. I cannot all of a sudden hear voip calls when using Fios internet. This issue only happens with The Fios internet. I am not sure how to fix this. Any help is appreciated. The box has a coax and a Ethernet cable coming from their ONT. I can't seem to use just the ethernet cable from the ONT into a computer.

I have Comcast cable internet in Atlanta and use a Motorola SB6121 modem and a Linksys wireless router. The wireless network has been up and running for over a year and I have never had any problems with it and I have never made any changes to it after the initial setup. I connect to the wireless network using two smart phones and an Apple laptop. I live in an apartment so the signal strength is always high and I am never more than one room away from the wireless router.

It was working fine one night like always and then in the morning I was unable to connect to the wireless network. I can still access the internet via wired ethernet cable so I know the internet is online and it is downloading at full speed. I can access the internet via wired connection directly from the modem to the computer. I can also access the internet via wired connection from the modem to the router to the computer. Comcast shows no problems with the connection on their end.

I have purchased all new ethernet cables so I know the cables aren't the problem so I figured the wireless router might have a problem. I bought a new wireless router (Apple Airport Express) and created a new wireless network. I can see the network name is available and it has full signal strength with WPA2 encryption just like it had always been with the old router.

When I try to connect from my phone or laptop it will say "Unable to obtain IP address" and "Network disabled because the internet connection i... Read more

A:Unable to connect to wireless network. "Internet connection is too slow."

if the router is working with a cable connection, then its unlikely to be the modem , unless thats also a router and you are using it for DHCP

you say the modem is connected by cable to the router
and any device connected to the router by cable works perfectly - is that correct

on the old router - have you removed the wireless security and see if you can connect ?

carried out a full power cycle - see below

also it would be worth making a note of the router configuration and do a factory reset on the router and re setup and try again

with a PC connected by a cable direct to the modem can we see an ipconfig /all
now do a power cycle and connect the router
with a PC connected by a cable direct to the router can we see an ipconfig /all

I am trying to connect to my cable/modem router via ethernet from my desktop PC. Both the modem and the PC's (the modem is an Actiontek MI424WR Rev 1) have lights by the ethernet port indicating they are connected.

I talked to my ISP (verizon fios) and they have determined that is a driver issue, some driver on my computer needs to be updated, because in device manager under network adapters I have the following

1. ASUS USB-N13 300Mbps 11n wireless USB donagle
2. Tap win-32 Adapter V9
3. Tap win-32A Adapter v9 #2

Under other devices under device manager I have

1. Ethernet Controller
2. Unknown Device

Both of the above two have yellow exclamation points next to them. I am told this is a driver issue and to contact microsoft, which I did. I was also told ethernet connection should be under network adapters and not other devices. We tested my windows XP laptop connected by ethernet and that did not work either

The tech at microsoft told me he could help if I did a remote session with him, but that I would have to pay one time fee of $99, so I said no. Does anyone know how to update the driver? I have already tried right clicking the ethernet controller and selecting update driver software- it can not find a driver on my computer or online.

Hi all. I've been unable to connect to the internet for 4 months. I'm using a Webtv to post
this. The computer is a Dell Inspirion 5000e w /
Windows XP Pro. I've tried everything and absolutly nothing will resolve this problem. The
one thing I haven't tried is to do a Re-Install.
I really believe this is the solution. The connection starts to dial onto the internet and
within 30 Secs, I get an error message: 691:User

computer tells is while "trying" to connect is
down in the "right hand cornor of the Windows

like the ones in comics, saying "Explorer File is
Corrupted". Since I'm not aware of any way to
repair Corrupted files, I am only guessing that
a Re-Install will resolve my problems. By all means please express your thoughts. Thank you all. Capt. John---JJJJJR

Im having trouble connecting to the internet on PC. When I try to start up Firefox (or any other internet accessing program on my computer) I get a message saying the server cannot be found, etc etc. I have tried restarting my computer, re-connecting the connection, repairing the connecting. All my firewalls are turned off, I even removed one of them. This has happened before but normally I can clean spyware off and it runs just fine. I've already run everything on my computer to clean of spyware, virus's, vundo, and a bunch of other things that I got from the security portion of this site. I've also checked back a few pages of posts and done searches, but it is to no avail.

If any one has any ideas as to what could be the problem, Im willing to try almost anything. oh, and im connecting to the internet from the same ethernet cord, from the same connection, but its on my mac. Which, imo, rules out the problem being something with either of those.
 

A:Unable to connect to internet

You said "Same ethernet cord, same connection". And what's on the other end of that ethernet cord? How do you connect to your ISP?


You connected directly from computer to (cable or dsl) modem? If you have a router or something in between remove it. And, btw, are you using a cable or dsl provider. Have you called them as well see if it's their problem?
Have you power cycled the modem?
Is the NIC on your mac configured to match the parameters required by your ISP? e.g. DHCP
Is an IP address getting assigned to the computer? or are there connection problems even before that step is completed?

I then went to Start > Run> NOTEPAD c:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS

Download Firefox and install it and see if you can access the internet. IE browsers do get corrupt. Also you use use some sort of spyware, mailware, adware clearner with on demand scanner. I recommend using Spyware Terminator it's open source and it's 100%. Download and install then run it on FULL see what it finds on your system. .

This is a connection I have used before, plug in the wire and get surfing. Now though I can only surf using wireless, not using cable.

I have had a similar problem before but at client's offices, where I have never connected to the internet with this laptop before, like trying with my wired connection this morning, I would get connected bu the connection would say 'LOcal Only'

Is there some central control on my VISTA machine that will stop certain types or ways of connecting to the internet?

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP1-SP2, Vista, etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

The reason why I'm explaining this is because they were both on when we had a dreadful storm. Now the desktop works fine & is able to connect to the internet no problem. As for the laptop, all things appear to be working without any problems, except the ability to connect to the internet. We have contacted the isp, they came out and said it had nothing to do with anything at their end (we already had figured that one out because of the desktop). During his check though he tried to run the msconfig to see what programs were running and he couldn't get it to open. I've disconnected it from the router, and connected it direct, but no go with the internet. Any suggestions on what the problem could be? As I say, all programs, in every sence of the word the laptop appears to be working just fine. Problem stands, it will not connect to the internet.

Hi!

I have a problem that I've been trying to solve for 3 days. After I upgraded from Windows 2000 to XP, my Internet connection doesn't work anymore. I was thinking about disabling the built-in firewall, but I can't find it! There's no Advanced tab in the connection properties (see image attachment).

I have 3 computers connected through a router, and the router is connected to the cable modem. The 2 other computers (also with XP) can connect normally to the Internet, but mine doesn't. The problem is NOT with the hardware, my ethernet card works properly and I updated the driver. I ran a scan with the Network Diagnostics tool and uploaded the html file here (the network adapters section shows a PPPoE adapter but I've uninstalled it since, I'm using the SiS ethernet adapter). I tried some troubleshooting guides and looked for references on the internet, but nothing worked, I really don't know what to do now. Please help me!
