Is there a way to monitor all device's internet connection ?

Q: Is there a way to monitor all device's internet connection ?

Is there a way to monitor all device's internet connection into a log ? (computer, laptop, tablets and phone ... all in one)

Deeper explanation :

because I do not like AT&T DSL 5M internet provider, but that is the only company in this area that has it.
(no Hughes dish etc ... no)

anyway, I am getting sick of disconnecting and reconnecting ... not sure if that DSL is fluctuating ... or along the DSL lines thru houses/business re-wiring DSL ... or etc etc etc ...

how can I know whether is it guaranteed disconnected/Reconnected by computer or DSL or etc ?

I was playing a 8 ball tournament online and lost one match dues disconnecting (no, hack/cheat involved because I played on mobile)

only thing I noticed is that AT&T cellular data still connected forever without getting disconnected ... but I can not use data plan because of the limited bandwidth/data usage.

so, I tried nearly everything I can think of and researched hard ... and tested it ... I still can not find an issue, even DSL guy came here to check it out ... nothing's wrong here ... BS ... there is something, somewhere that is causing disconnecting and reconnecting ...

already did flush dns, clear cache, etc etc ...

I just need networking monitor log because I am can not watch all 6 devices and test it when disconnecting occurs ... I thought that is a great idea to pinpoint even further down, for example : laptop #2, tablet #1 and this computer gets disconnecting reconnecting when occurs ... while other 3 does not ... then why this 3 can not do what other 3 can do ? ...that is the idea ... could be hardware, but not likely though.

I hope you get the idea what I am trying to say and asking for ... I am really tired of this "disconnecting/reconnecting" ... and it seems it only happens so often at business hours ... and fewer at night ... since it's fewer at night ... then it can not be the devices, but rather outside my home ... like hub, lines, create new buildings causing it ...

Anything that can helps me to see closer and pinpoint what causing DSL disconnecting/reconnecting

Preferred Solution: Is there a way to monitor all device's internet connection ?

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 Have An Hp Desktop With Video Integrated On The Motherboard Rather Than A Separate Video Card.

I Want To Have A Second Monitor So I Can View One Document While Typing Information From It Into A Report.

I Purchased A Usb Connected Second Video Device So I Could Avoid Having To Open The “box” And Deal With Inserting An Additional Pci Card.

The Manual That Came With The Usb Device Says That If Your Computer Has An Integrated Video On The Motherboard That There Is A Utility In Its Software That Always Sets It As The Primary Display Monitor.

It Further Says That There Is Also A Utility That Disables This “always Primary Monitor” Feature, And It Can Be Run By Clicking On The “safely Remove Hardware” Icon In The Task Bar.

The Manual States That The “usb Device’ Setup Must Designate The Monitor Connected To It Must Be Set As The “primary Monitor” For This Device To Work.

I Tried To Change The New “usb” Monitor To The “primary” In Windows Display Settings But When I Make The Changes And Do The “re-start” Windows Requires To Effect The Changes, The Original Monitor Always Appears As The Primary Again, As Indicated Above, In The Manual For The “usb Device”

When I Click On The “safely Remove Hardware” Icon In The Task Bar, I Do Not See Anything That Refers To Disabling The “on Board Primary Monitor”.

Going To Windows Device Manager And Clicking On Monitors, I Can See The Original Primary Monitor And The New “usb Monitor” And They Both Show As “device Op... Read more

I'm looking for a device to remotely connect the LCD monitor, the mouse and the keyboard (and eventulay USB, speakers and others) to the computer case.

Something like a home WiFi connection but not between the computer and a network but only between the external devices and the computer case.

The purpose is only to be able to use my computer everywhere in the house without carrying the box and repluging the +-15 cables again and again.
Any suggestion?

I set up ICS on my laptop so that I can use my Xbox 360 in the living room. Everything runs fine, however when I run a network diagnostic test on the 360 it tells me that it only has "moderate" connectivity to the NAT.

When I have the 360 hooked up directly to the router setting up the DMZ for the 360 is no problem. However, when the 360 is set up in the living room and running off of the ICS I can't set it up as a DMZ because my router only allows a DMZ to be set up as a hardcoded 192.168.1.xxx format. Since the address assigned to the 360 does not follow the 192.168.1.xxx format I need to be able to assign the DMZ to an address that doesn't maintain the 192.168.1.xxx convention. Is there any way of doing this either by reconfiguring my WRT54G router in some way or by some other networking trickery?

Thanks in advance.

Other devices can connect to my wifi network and my phone can connect to different wifi networks. My phone does connect to the wifi (It says connect to Edimax...) but no data comes in.The problem is not that I have inputted the wrong password.

I got a used asus X54C laptop from ebay. I replaced a faulty hard disk, downloaded OS7 , reinstalled and activated with the key provided on the back of the machine.

The problem is the laptop has no internet connection. However, my desktop computer has no problems. Both machines are connected through a LAN switch to the same DSL router (Experia V8). I would like to be able to connect the asus to the internet through WLAN.

I tried to run Systeminfo.exe. But the asus is missing .NET Framework 4. The file dotNetFx40_Full_setup seems to need an internet connection as well. I'm at this all afternoon with no progress at all. How can I figure out whether I have all hardware I need in the first place? I need this laptop+internet for study.

Thanks for any help, maurits

A:no internet connection - device drivers (Code 28)

my first guess is your install did not have any drivers for the ASUS network hardware

This is probably going to be a silly question............but, I told someone I would check.

Networked computers with ICS, on the host computer, you can see a network monitor showing that there is a good connection, excellent connection, etc.

Is there any program or setting that can be installed on the other computers on the network similar to the little green monitor that MSN has? Or at least show that the machine is currently connected to the internet?

According to your description, I suggest you create an Ad-Hoc Network to  share an Internet connection.
Meanwhile, as far as know on windows 8 or 8.1,you just can use CMD with admin privileges to create it.
Regarding how to create it, I would like to share the article with you:
Where is the ?ad hoc? wireless connection feature in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
Note: Ad hoc networks can only be wireless, so you must have a wireless network adapter installed in your computer to set up or join an ad hoc network.

I've got an issue at work where I'm told the problem might lie with our internet connection continually dropping out. Really short duration, not enough to notice in a normal browsing session but it affects the till system we have. I'm unsure if this is true and I want to test it. Can anyone recommend a bit of software I could install and leave running on the pc to continually check that we're getting internet service? I've had a google but everything looks a bit complicated, I just want something really simple and preferably free (I work for a charity!).

Would appreciate some help restoring Internet connection.

Did an install of Windows 7, and, at first, had Internet access. Installed an AV (Panda), MBAM, Windows Updates, and also tried to upgrade IE8 to IE11. Have no clue what borked the connection.

Keep getting:
"The remote device or resource won't accept the connection."
"Connection with server cannot be established."

In Device Manager there was a Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface with a yellow flag. I removed it and restarted, but, it was not there after the reboot, so, it did not re-install.

Thanks for your help.

A:No Internet access, remote device or resource won't accept connection

Marie have you run the Network Connection Troubleshooter?

Did you install the wireless driver from the PC maker's Support Downloads webpage?

Can you plug in by ethernet cable to download that driver and install? In addition Check for Updates to install any other Important or Optional Updates, as other drivers or patches may be needed for this.

A search for the error here suggests resetting IE and also says spyware may be involved.

If you want I can connect via TeamViewer to go over and and finish setting up the install for you. Install at all defaults and PM to me the ID and pw. I am here til midnight PST tonight and all day tomorrow.

Hi! I'm running Windows 2000 and my internet connection hangs when I play a file in Windows Media Player or plug in a USB device. When I stop playing the file or unplug the device, it immediately returns back to normal.

Any ideas what causes this or how to fix it?

Sounds like a resource problem perhaps a few system specifications would help diagnose and a possible solution i.e. free harddrive space and memory installed.

I have Cox communications, i should be getting 100Mbs, modem/router hardware is all current.
I am not running any streaming devices ( i am going to, this is why i am verifying my connection)
these tests are from a hardwired PC:
Running the google speed test through M Lab i get various inconsistent results ...last four test, 30 seconds apart yielded:
18.1 /5.66
Ookla results are consistent:
19 ms

60.34 Mbps

5.55 Mbps
is there a program i can run that will monitor and graft my speed over time that i can show to a tech to prove these speeds?

A:How to monitor Internet connection speed over time

If you register on the Ookla web-site it will create a very neat graphic log of your performance which can be copied. You could, for example, do a series of tests across the span of a day which would show how your performance changes with local loading. Or a series say once a week which would show variation over time.

Well I'm on Windows 8 and my computer has been running fine until yesterday. Randomly at around 8:00, my internet shut itself and it wouldn't work. I tried resetting the router and such but nothing worked. My computer can connect to the internet connection,
but when I boot up Google Chrome it will not work. So I did some troubleshooting and eventually it said this "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection". And it's not only my internet browser that won't work. Other apps like Skype
won't connect either. After looking at another thread, I tried resetting the settings on Internet Explorer and changing the Proxy thing but nothing worked. Someone also suggested downloading Hitman, but that was stupid considering I couldn't even connect to
the internet. I had Windows Defender scan my computer and it said there was nothing wrong. So I'm not sure what is up. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

A:Cannot connect to Internet. "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection"

Make sure other device connected to your internet don't have similar issue
is there any changes before this issue happen? install, reinstall, windows update, HW changes, router setting or environment changes
just try at safe mode with networking, if its fine at safe mode with networking, than something to do with 3rd party software, antivirus, firewall ect. Try to restore your PC using restore point
if this issue also persist at safe mode, its considering driver or hardware failure (try to update driver, reinstall or run basic TS regarding WLan issue)

Hi, I'm writing on the behalf of my brother, who's (desktop) PC is in the room as I write this on my laptop. We usually share our internet connection (I am still using it), but he is no longer able to connect.

In the past, he has gotten a "A network cable has been unplugged" message several times in seemingly random intervals, restarting his PC would usually fix this.

However yesterday he got a message: "This connection has limited or no connectivity" and his game (AlienSwarm at the time (through steam)) stalled out and he decided to restart the PC yet again, only this time after the reboot, he not only wasn't reconnected to the internet, he also couldn't find the Local Area Connection icon(s) in his Network Connections window, the only thing there is a "1394 Connection" which we have no clue about.

I'm gonna add my skype here if any helpful people need more info on this :P Feel free to add jaan.stern

Also I put this in the XP forum, because I wouldn't know which Network support subforum to use!

A:[SOLVED] Loss of internet connection, along with missing icons in Internet Connection

1394 Connection = firewire.

Start from 'go', ie, in Device Manager, uninstall his network adapter then reboot and set up a NEW network connection.

BTW - did he have any ports 'forwarded' etc?

One other thing: I don?t know where you have bought your Qosmio but I presume it was offered in Pakistan. The right support page should be http://asia.toshiba.com/pakistan

OK. I'm trying to switch from wireless to a faster(?) ethernet cable based internet access.
I use a Dell Optiplex 755, 32 bit OS, Windows 7. I'm the utilizing Comcast high speed internet supplier, a LinkSys E4200 wireless router, a LinkSys WUMC710 (wireless-ac universal media connector; with promises faster connections/speeds) with ethernet cable OUT to the ONLY ethernet port/card supplied [Network Connector (RJ-45)] on the rear of the small form factor tower. when I run the PC with USB wireless (Linksys AE2500) it works fine, but, I hope for an improvement with the LinkSys WUMC710 inserted in the chain.
the Network Adapter (found in Device Manager) is the Intel(R) 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection. This DOES NOT work with the ethernet cable connection (error 651, WAN Miniport problem). even when I uninstall this driver, it reinstalls upon Windows 7 restart, which is contrary to some of the suggested fix posts I've found in on-line forums dealing with these types of issues.

I'm thinking it may be a missing driver for the ethernet port/Network Connector (RJ-45), but, I am neither a hardware, nor IT tech. therefor I have no idea what driver I would SPECIFCICALLY require ofr this port(?), nor can I discern the particular ethernet card that came factory installed on this machine. I have consulted the Dell site and, lo & behold, they don't endorse using Windows 7 on the Optiplex 755, so the only driver updates/downloads are listed for endorsed OS's XP & Vista. so n...

Well I've fiddled around and searched to no avail ...

I have some form of conflict between my main wireless network and a LAN I use for file
transfer and streaming.

The attached PDF file illustrates the setup. Basically, the wireless network is fine by
itself. Music streams from the Asus EeePC to the various Squeezeboxes and internet
connectivity is enabled on all PCs and the iPad.

The LAN works well by itself, allowing me to use FreeFileSync to quickly and relaible
transfer / backup music between the Acer dekstop and Asus netbook server PCs, and to
stream music from the Asus EeePC (which is the music server running Logitech Media
Server) to the Squeezebox 2.

However, the two networks can't co-exist without the Acer and/or Asus losing internet
connectivity when their respective LAN connections are made to the Buffalo router they
share with the Squeezebox 2.

The notification area shows:-

Currently connected to:

No internet access

Internet access

Wireless Network Connection:

SqueezeNet Connected


I have attached the ipconfig /all output in the out.txt file and diagram of the network in Network.pdf.

I suspect this is a simple clash of parameters somewhere, or incompatible IP addresses but I'm not good enough to resolve it.

I am seeking advice here to solve a problem with internet connection on my laptop.
The laptop (Thinkpad X61 running 32 bit Vista) seems to be ok to connect to my router, which is connected to a cable modem. Internet is also connected on the base level (more details below). However Internet Explorer (or firefox, opera) cannot find any web page, and Mozilla Thunderbird email program cannot connect to email server.
I am decently ok with computers, so I have run some checks myself. This is not a problem of router or cable modem, as my other computers can access internet through the same router and modem. Also, the laptop gets an IP address from the router and can connect to shared resources on other computers within the same network.
The laptop also finds outside addresses and get a response when I run ping command, e.g. ping www.google.com or ping www.yahoo.com, suggesting that the connection to DNS server is fine at the base level.
I was suspecting that windows firewall, my Symantec antivirus or VPN is creating the problem. But the problem persists after I disabled firewall and the antivirus software and deleted VPN connection.
One important thing to mention is that this problem starts when after a software install, which I removed afterwards. I tried to run netsh reset by "netsh winsock reset catalog", "netsh int ipv4 reset myreset.log" and "netsh int ipv6 reset myreset.log" and restart. Still does not work.

Cannot connect to home wireless network with Toshiba Satellite laptop running Vista with SP2. Other family wireless devices working fine and good internet connection using ethernet cable from my laptop to router.

Problem just started today after trying public free wireless in airport early today. Would not connect and got a security certificate warning on another free internet network. So, did not use. Internet worked fine tethered to my phone.

I have an internal wireless g card and a usb plug-in wireless n adapter. Neither one works now. In network status section of control panel shows good network connection but red X before internet connection icon.

I ran a Norton scan and Malwarebytes scan in safe mode with no issues. Also tried to connect wireless in safe mode with no success.

Lastly I did system restore to a few days ago when wireless connection was working fine. No success there either.

Hello everyone,
I have an internet connection problem and was wondering if anyone here can help.
I cannot connect to the internet even though all the green lights on the modem are solid and steady. I have a laptop connects (ethernet cable) to the modem (which connect to the ISP). I ask my ISP support to verify my IP address and my modem mac address and they check out good. (I have an XP OS, IE, firefox, and opera web browsers, and a cable modem connection to the ISP - all three browsers cannot connect to the internet.) I can ping the yahoo and google websites and my loopback address, but cannot access these websites via my browsers. I look in the TCP/IP protocol properties and they're all set to automatically obtain the address. I also tried to manually configure the ip address, the sub mask, the dns servers, and the default gateway (first in the general tab, then in the alternate configuration tab) to the ones I found the network connections detail. I tried the ping, ipconfig, and netstat commands to try figuring out the problem but no luck.
Has anyone comes across this problem?

Any help and advices are much appreciated.
Thx in advance.

Hoping someone can help.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows XP with a wireless connection to a broadband router.

Several weeks ago my laptop started dropping the internet connection randomly (I'm alos unabel to access email when this happens).

My wireless network icon in my toolbar shows the connection as 'Excellent' but for some reason both Internet and Email is not available. The only way to fix the problem has been to restart my laptop which is very frustrating.

I've noticed that this also happens randomly when I'm at home (using different wireless broadband modem) so I think the issue is my laptop not the 2 x routers/modems.

I'm running NOD32 for security as well (but have been for 4 years now with no problems till now).

Please help.

Hi there, im new to the forums and i've got a problem that's been a real pain for me lately.
I've got a wireless connection in my house going through a Linksys WRT54GC router and also a wired connection with Cisco gateway (only 1 laptop uses it). About 1 month ago some strange things began to happen with the wireless connection, my PC seems not to be able to connect unless I reinstall the protocols and it's really annoying to do that every time I run my PC. Also, the wired connection stopped working (probably because of cable being broken) but it requires a router restart 90% of the time when I want to connect the laptop (that used to connect through cable) to the wireless network. The 2nd laptop has an issue mentioned in the title, the LAN works but it can't connect to the Internet through the router. Ipconfig /all shows that DHCP isn't working, there's no default gateway and DNS seems to be wrong. Could that all be related to router not being updated for a long time? I tried reinstalling drivers, unistalling and installing back network card and doing most of the things mentioned in similar threads but nothing seems to work. I know it all looks very silly but I can't do anything about it, at least now - I don't have access to any router settings and can't update it.
Every bit of help is appreciated. I can paste all the information needed from all computers.
Operating systems are: Windows 7 on PC and the 1st laptop, 2nd laptop... Read more

I have windows 7 Pro installed. I have a DSL connection that requires a username and password. I have read the tutorials for setting up ICS in windows 7, but it is not working for me. In my 'change adapter settings' page, I have 3 connections: LAN, Wireless and M 1 (this is the dial-up for the username and password). Here's what I have done:

I have enabled ICS for M 1, and created an ad-hoc wireless connection called 'M network'. I basically want to share my wired connection with my iPhone. Everything is ok as far as connecting my iPhone to M network, but when I try to use the internet, all i get is a 'connecting' message on my phone, and it doesnt go any further. I have used this network before to connect 'air mouse' on my phone that lets me use my phone as a touchpad. It still works fine that way, but I cant use internet.

I have even tried enabling the ICS on LAN instead, but got the same results.

Am I doing something wrong?

I inadvertently deleted reference to the monitor from the Device Manager (Windows XP Professional). Now the computer boots, but the screen goes blank when the XP logon screen is due to appear. I tried to use Safe Mode, but after selecting it the screen goes blank again. I also tried disconnecting the monitor, booting, reconnecting and booting, without success. I also tried changing CMOS configuration from Onboard VGA, to AGP card, then installing a AGP video card, but after booting the screen still goes blank.

I am not very computer literate so excuse me if I don't speak "the language", but here goes... My operating system is Windows XP and thats pretty much all I know about this machine. A few weeks ago we had some downed power lines in our area. My computer is on a battery back up but the power surges were coming so fast frequent that instead of seamlessly transferring the power source to the battery, the computer kept trying to restart. It did this three times then I shut it down until the storms past.

When I turned it on the next day I got an error saying the Device Monitor Application failed to initialize and now alot of programs won't open, like Paint and Picassa. Also, I have an all in one printer, scanner, coppier and the coppier and printer work fine. The scanner works (mechanically) but the application it uses to transfer the document to the computer does't work. With these programs I just get the usual Microsoft error saying they are having a problem and asking if I want to repot it.

I can't find anything on the Microsoft site that looks like the Device Monitor Application and I'm concerned that my hard drive is damaged. What do you think, any ideas?

I've been having problems with my display (separate thread "monitor twitching...") I thought it might be my monitor. I tried updating drivers, which didn't help but actually made it worse. In searching for options I came across "roll back drivers" which I did and the display was better, without so many blacked out words for a while.

I think that the drivers automatically updated again... whatever happened the problem was worse again so I thought maybe if I uninstalled and reinstalled the monitor it might help.

It unistalled, but it didn't reinstall correctly. It's running, but it shows up as "Generic PnP Monitor" in Device Manager.

How can I fix this? I have a Gateway FHX2300 Monitor. (It's still shifting and blacking out words, worse than ever.)

You've already got this thread going for your monitor problem, so there's no need to start another thread.


By the way, VIPRE Antivirus has a poor rating. You should get rid of it and replace it with a better one.

It has just been recognised as a default - in display properties.

can't find anywhere to try and update drivers - I have the drivers ready and waiting.

Any suggestions?


A:Monitor not showing up in device manager?

In Control Panel go to Display. On the last Tab, Settings, go to Advanced, then you will see a tab called Monitor. Click on Properties, then Driver and you will be able to view and change drivers there.

(Yes, I know you can get there from System, but for someone who's never been there, this sometimes makes more sense.)

First thing, I know next to nothing about computers.
We have a problem with our monitor switching off after start-up. The only way we can turn on the computer is by disabling the video card (Radeon x1300 pro).

Last thing that we did before the computer stopped working was to load suggested Windows Updates.
"Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - August 2009 (KB890830)
Update for Windows Mail Junk E-mail Filter [August 2009] (KB905866)
Security Update for Windows Vista (KB973540)
Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Junk Email Filter (KB972691)
Security Update for Windows Vista (KB973507, KB971657, KB971557, KB956744)"

We have tried updating the Radeon Video card which is now updated.
We tried re-installing the Viewsonic monitor wizard cd and it said that we had to manually install a component (display optimization files)for Vista but then it wouldn't complete the installation. The viewsonic file in program files is there but empty.

Now I've found that the Monitor device in Device Manager is gone so I can't try to enable or change anything to do with monitors.

A:No monitor branch in device manager

I have no access to another monitor to see if the problem is with the monitor itself.

Just wondering if I should spend the $200 on a new monitor or getting the computer fixed by tech guys?
