Internet connection failover PPPoE & 3G - What software

Q: Internet connection failover PPPoE & 3G - What software

Hi,

We have a fairly unstable Internet connection through Dodo (Please no quips about peanuts and monkeys, I know Dodo is a terrible ISP). They, and Telstra have refused to fix the problems, preferring instead to blame my equipment, despite the fact that I have replaced every part of the network many times over. Line noise on the connection is terrible, and causes anything up to 30+ disconnections a day, from anywhere between 10 seconds to 90 minutes.

As my sons play a lot of online gaming, disconnections not only kill the game, but also get them demoted on the servers.

So, they have a 3G mobile phone with 1.5GB data allowance per month.

But we are having problems finding any software (preferably FREE), that will let us set up a fail over environment such that when the PPPoE connection fails it switches to 3G, and automatically reverts to PPPoE when that service comes back online.

Any one know of any software that meets this need?

thanks
Tanya

Preferred Solution: Internet connection failover PPPoE & 3G - What software

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 you are looking for Connectify dispatch which can use both the ISP connection and the 3G at the same time though it's not exactly free it may still be worth the price.

My Internet Connection was working fine. All of a sudden it started going dead in the middle of Downloads/Surfing.

This is what happens:

1. The first page you choose (any page) loads. If instead of that you download files (i.e. updating the antivirus) the first and with luck second files download, then it goes ¨server connection failed¨

2. If you click on any link or try a second page it fails to find it and gets stuck on ¨searching for (any IP)¨, or ¨connecting to www.anypage.com¨

This happens at random times, i.e. sometimes after 20 mins, 30ms 32 mins, etc.
Then even if I connect and disconnect again, it doesn't help.

I have to uninstall the LAN Card and re-install it. Alternately, I have to uninstall the "Network Components" (eg. Network Monitor Driver, Internet Protocol (TCP/IP, etc.)) from the properties Tab of the Internet Connection.

Please help!
 

A:PPPoE Internet Connection goes dead after a while

I had similar problems.

Check your modem to see if it can't keep line sync.(Normally a light on the modem) If it effectively can't, call your ISP support and ask them if you could get a line test from your telco. In my case, a couple of days after the test, it started working fine.

Hi,
I am using windows XP SP2 and have run into a problem on my laptop.
We use a PPPOE connection for the internet and it is working fine on this machine but on my laptop, it connects fine but after a few seconds, it disconnects. When I go to my network connections, I find that after it disconnects, it creates a new PPOE Connection called "x-connect".
I have no clue how to fix it.

Hi guys, I am new to the forum. Well I have looked up answers to many problems on here before but never posted. This is the first time I was unable to find the answer to a problem on these forums.

My problem is:

I have an iBurst Modem which is used to connect to a wireless ISP. Normally I would connect this via a network cable directly to my built in PC LAN card. I am then able to connect to the internet by connecting using WAN miniport PPPOE by entering my username and password.

My problem is I have a N300 DGN2200 Netgear router which does not have a WAN port only 4 LAN ports and a telephone type connection for an ADSL input. The routers sold in South Africa do not have WAN ports on them standard.

If I connect the router directly to my PC and connect the Modem to the router LAN obviously it does not work as the ISP requires the connection to be through a WAN miniport PPOE type connection.

My MOBO has two LAN cards, so I thought I could connect the Netgear router to the second LAN port on my MOBO and then 'share' the WAN miniport with the LAN wireless connection so that I can broadcast the internet connection throughout the house.

Is there ANY way to share a WAN Miniport PPOE internet connection to another LAN and broadcast it wirelessly?

Please let me know if you need more information.

A:Sharing WAN PPPOE internet connection with Wireless LAN

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I subscribed to your thread to see if anyone would pick it up. I've never done what you are trying to do, so I might not be the best person in the forum to help you work thru this... but here is what I would try:

1) Connect the Netgear router to the unused LAN card on your MOBO.

2) Restart the desktop computer.

3) Check to see if that LAN card is assigned an IP address by the Netgear router.
(via command prompt window and ipconfig)

4) W7 should ask you what type of network this is going to be - tell it Home network

5) Connect a device to the wireless part of the Netgear router.

6) Use that device to ping the IP address of that was assigned in step 3.
(I have a ping app on my phone.)

If the pings do not time out, then you have part of the issue worked out.

I have a problem sharing PPPoE internet connection after installing Win8 in top of Win7.

On my computer (say, "Computer A") I have 2 LAN ports on the motherboard:
1-st one ("Ethernet 1") is connected to internet provider
2-nd one ("Ethernet 2") is connected to "Computer B"


I am trying to set up internet an connection on "Computer A" and share it to "Computer B";
I created a broadband connection and checked the checkbox in its sharing tab, allowing other users of the network to be able to use my internet connection (I specified the "Ethernet 2" connection as the "home network connection" in this tab)

Then I configure the TCP/IP v4 protocol on the "Ethernet 2" connection in the following way:
IP 192.168.137.1
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.137.1 (but after closing and opening the protocol properties window this field became blank)
DNS 192.168.137.1

I tested both computers can be ping-ed from each other.
After this simple configuration I am connecting to the internet.
I have the internet on "Computer A", but NO internet on "Computer B".
Moreover, on computer B, while I am trying to ping some site, its IP addess is determined correctly, but sill no internet.

Hello!
I did my upgrade quite shortly ago.
Basically before that upgrade I had 2 connections at the same time: Local Area Connection with Ethernet and my PPPOE connection as advised by my provider.

I've been using my PPPOE connection for years to sidestep some connection issues especially with uPnP, but now my internet only works through Ethernet and when I also start in my dial-up section the PPPOE connection, Windows 10 reports the "no internet connection" problem.

After using "Troubleshoot problems" it resets the required parts and reports solving "Gateway is not available" problem.

1)I've already tried to reinstall all network drivers by deleting them first with device manager and through netcfg ?d in command line.
2)I don't know if it helps but my BitDefender reports new adapters upon starting PPPOE: Teredo Tunneling and 6to4
3)I already tried to set Local Area Connection to Home and my other connection to Public and also all other possible permutations of settings

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Been having this issue with my Buffalo AirStation WHR-G300N Wireless router, and I'm starting to go nuts with it. I tried restoring it to factory settings but that didn't do anything, now I'd like to get this working pretty quickly because my mom likes to use the internet and this is the only wireless router I have.

Hi guys

I've just bought a D-Link Wireless Router and USB network card and, after loads of messing around, I've managed to connect to the Internet, but now it's really quite slow. I moved the USB card to another port which has increased the speed, but it's still not at the levels it should be (although Windows says I'm getting between 15 and 60 Mbps.

I tried altering so many setting just to get the Internet connected that it's quite possible I have changed something I shouldn't have. Or could it just be the speed of the USB, and if so, how can I improve this?

What kind of information do I need to provide to get some help on this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I have a strange problem. I have AOL broadband and I'd like to connect to the internet without using the infamous bloated AOL software. I know how to do that using Vistas' "set up connection or network" wizard and I can successfully log in using by username and password. The problem is the connection is very poor when I use this method. The speed tests show the correct speed and downloads are full speed but pages seemingly randomly do not load (for long stretches of several minutes). For example my home page does not load ("page cannot load" error), google does not load, some pages load but not fully with many errors.

This isnt a browser issue (I tried firefox, IE, chrome), this isn't a modem/router issue (I have a laptop that works fine with a permanently logged in router), it's not an AOL issue I can still log in fine with AOL software and then browse fine with firefox, it's not a hardware issue, and it's not a firewall issue (it's off).

Therefore it must be an issue with the way windows connects to my modem when using the built in PPPoE broadband connection.

I really have no idea what could be wrong. Maybe one of you do?

Thanks

i use windows xp's in built pppoe dialer to connect to my adsl connection. i have had the connection for almost a year now and have never faced any problems.

the problem i am facing is a strange one. when i am connecting to the net with a particular connection (set up using the network connection wizard) more than once it's settings get changed. for example the display progress while connecting in the properties (which is default) and the prompt for name/password/certificate during connection (also default) get changed. even the service name which is usually blank gets replaced by a string of meaningless numbers.

even more surprising when i check the two above mentioned options and try to connect to the net the username which consisted only of characters and underscores gets partiallly replaced by an (it cannot be anything else) ip address.

i am absolutely clueless as nothing like this has ever happened before. i had performed a full system scan with norton antivirus before this happened.

if i set up a new connection with the wizard, things go back to normal. however the moment i connect, the connection settings go haywire. any ideas? thanks in advance

I have a DSL connection that connects with PPPoE. I use RASPPPoE as my client to connect. I have 2 NICs in the 'server' computer, and 1 in the 'client' computer. On the server, 1 NIC is connected to the DSL modem, and the other is connected to port 1 of a four port hub. The NIC on the client computer is connected to port 2 of the hub.

So here's my problem. I installed Microsoft's ICS on the server computer to share the connection with the other. I also installed file and print sharing. I am able to map network drives, but I can't for the life of me get the ICS to work!

I set the inside NIC on the server to a static IP (192.164.0.1) and the NIC on the client to 192.164.0.2 I also set the default gateway on the client to the first machine's static IP. I fixed the settings in Internet Explorer to send over a LAN, but it simply gives me a 'page not found' error. What am I doing wrong? Both machines are WinME
 

A:Connection Sharing with PPPoE

I was going at it from the wrong approach all along. Here's the final setup I have, in case anyone is looking at a similar setup.

PC1 - Win ME, 2 NICs
PC2 - Win ME, 1 NIC

1) Connected 1 NIC on PC1 to my DSL Modem (external)
2) Connected other NIC to 100BaseT Hub ($45 at Circuit City)
3) Ran a large chunk of CAT 5 wire from Hub to NIC in PC2
4) Installed appropriate protocals on each PC.
- PC1 has the PPPoE protocal from RASPPPoE, NetBIEU, and TCP/IP
- PC2 has NetBEUI and TCP/IP
5) Installed Microsoft ICS, specifying appropriate adapters.
6) Set Static IP on inside LAN card to 192.168.0.1 w/ Submask 255.255.255.0
7) Set IP on PC2's NIC to automatic, WINS to DHCP

Restarted both PCs and watched as they miraculously saw each other on the network and were willing to share the connection.

As long as one of your PCs has a WiFi card it can create its own wireless hot spot using Connectify.

I use it to connect my own iPhone to the internet when I'm too far from my router and it works a treat.

It allows you to be both connected to a router wirelessly and to be acting as a WiFi access point at the same time.

It is one of the most versatile networking apps out there.

Hey guys,

I am trying to solve this problem for 2 days now, reading through this forum and 1000 of google entries, NOTHING helped and I am not a PC-beginner.
I installed Win 7 yesterday on the 4-year old pc at my girlfriends. Everything worked fine except sound which didn't work out of the box but I got a driver. The next problem is the PPPoE connection, which drops randomly aprox. every 10 minutes or so. There is no router between the pc and the isp, an rj-45 cable goes directly to the pc from a switch I believe. We got a user and password to connect and that's how I set up the connection which worked fine, or so I thought. I also disabled IPv4 and 6 for the network card, didnt't help at all.
What I didn't try is to fill in the DNS server, but I don't believe that it makes any difference.

If I've been on the PPPoE, and switch to the LAN (it's cheaper), or if IE just thinks that it's not connected, I get a pop-up to open the PPPoE connection. The problem is that I may be connected to the LAN, and not have my modem with me.

Is there any way for the open network connection dialog to also list the LAN connection as an option. It only gives me the option of opening the PPPoE, or working offline.

I don't know what the hell is going on. So I installed Windows 7 x64 built 7600, internet was working as normal, then suddenly it started to disconnect and get speeds of 200kbps. My connection has a 50mbit limit and so far it worked good on windows Xp.

My network card is a nVidia networking controller from a motherboard with an nForce 560 chipset on it Gigabyte GA-M56S-S3

I installed and reinstalled the drivers countless times, there was no change. I called my provider and they ran numerous checks, even calling me to say they solved the problem, but nothing.

So I disabled TCP/Ip v6 on the PPPoE connection and it worked pretty good (aprox 4mbits/s). After 1 week the speed dropped to an avarage of 1,5mbit/s. Today I changed the MAC adress of the network card and it went up to 5-6mbit/s (a bit more than the avarage 1 week ago). Could the MAC have anything to do with it? The MAC I put was random.

To make things more interesting, I plugged my Acer laptop which has windows XP and the internet speed is aprox 15mbit/s.

Sometimes I would get something like 200kbps download and 9,5mbit/s upload.

I searched on nVidia's website for the newest drivers, but the n560 series one says it didn't found any hardware for the drivers I'm trying to install.

I really want to resolve this problem withouth buying another networking controller and have a PCI slot occupied for nothing.

Running Windows XP. Using Outlook 6 to compose and receive email. Outlook stopped recognizing the internet connection one day and we were having issues with malware so I figured that was the problem and have downloaded software to correct those issues. The scans found a ton of junk, most likely due to the fact that limewire was used on the computer at some point. Now the issue we have is that we are able to connect to the internet through firefox and the connection is working fine. The wireless connection that is set up through this desktop machine is working fine as well. The other software on the computer is NOT recognizing the internet connection at all. For instance, iTunes provides an error message along with Outlook and others. I have tried rebooting, and also running the connection wizard which did nothing. This computer was originally set up for a dial up but has worked fine for 2.5 years on the cable modem. I have contacted the ISP and they will offer no help besides telling me it is a software issue. Can anyone tell me what else to try? I am fairly new at this but would really like to correct this issue.

A:Connection issue - Internet OK - Other software not recognizing connection

Because you have Firefox and I am NOT familiar with it or how it impacts IE6 to 8, my only suggestion is to open your Network Connections in Control Panel then right click the NIC and then click properties and make sure Client for Microsoft Networks and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) appear.

Does anyone know how to setup a Windows 7 PPPoE connection to automatically log on, when the user logs on to their W7 account?

I'm going to be putting W7 RTM on my folks machine very soon, and trying to get my mom to remember to click a shortcut under XP to connect to the ISP before she tries to send/receive mail has been a nightmare. Getting her to use the "connect to" start menu link or clicking on the systray icon under Windows 7 will be impossible I think.

We have 4 pc's using 3 different ISP's on our ADSL line so using our ADSL router to login for us is not an option.

A:Automatically connect a PPPoE connection on login?

Ah ha, figured it out.

Had to turn off "Prompt for name and password..." in the connection properties, and put a shortcut to the pppoe connection in user startup folder.

What had me fooled was finding a way to make a shortcut of the pppoe connection, which was hidden under "change adapter settings" section of the Network and Sharing Center in control panel.

Is it normal? I'm running Win XP SP3 as OS, limited user account (pppoe starts slowly as well from the administrator account), the only program in the startup is the antivirus--avast.
What happens typically just after logging is that I open the browser and stare at it waiting for connection and if I open the task manager i see svchost.exe NETWORK SERVICE at 99% CPU all this time it dials its connection. It's something like 2-3 minutes more after logging till i can surf the web.
I had previously a linux install on this computer in which the same pppoe worked very fast compared with what i get on Xp, i used to log in and the daemon was taking 2 seconds to start . Compared to that experience i don't get at all the way pppoe works in windows so I come here asking if anyone could help me find what can I improve in my install. I've searched the "whole" web for an alternative to the built-in pppoe dialer in Windows and found ONLY two Cidial and Raspppoe which I 'm currently running but no sign of improvement.
I appreciate any little help.

What kind of router? Were you able to store uid and pword in previous builds? did you have to store uid in the pc or router? More networking info would be helpful

A:Setting PPPOE connection to autodial on startup

You are doing it the hard way. Just set it up from Internet Options in the Control Panel. You can also set it up from the Network Connections folder.

Hi guys!

I'm having trouble configuring my router. I want it to auto connect to internet after the modem got disconnected. What I do now is everytime my connection is lost, I have to reboot my router. So is there a way to not reboot my router after it has regain the connection of the cable modem? I'm using a belkin router - N300.

Thanks!
 

A:Can I set the connection of PPPoE to be automatic on Belkin router?

More info needed to answer this question. Who is the ISP? what is the model of the DSL modem?? How is everything hooked up?? Generally speaking, a DSL provider gives/rents a DSL modem/router to the customer. if the connection is getting dropped that frequently there may be an issue on the ISPs end, an issue with DSL filter placement, phone line noise, etc. Post back please. Thanks!

Hello, I think I'm experiencing a NAT networking problem, as most games I play complain that my NAT is moderate, or sometimes strict. I've researched this and found out it may be a Double NAT problem.

I've also researched two solutions for this: Disable NAT and DCHP on either the modem or router, or set up a PPPoE connection between the two. Can someone tell me which one is the easiest to do and how to do it?

Router: Linksys E3200 w/ Cisco

Modem: Motorola SB5102

Other Info: This IS a broadband connection, and I believe it is a DSL or Cable setup. I also know how to access the router settings, and how to disable NAT and DCHP. However, I do not know how to connect to the modem (I do know the default IP for it) and don't know how to perform a PPPoE connection, as this would be my first time.
 

A:Setting up a PPPoE connection between router & modem

PPPoE is for DSL connections... Go to the router and modem websites and download the instructions from there. It will explain how to connect and access the router

Hi
I use WinXP. I had recently got an ADSL connection (using PPPoE) from my local telephone company. It was working fine. The other day i saw that in the ADSL dial dialog box, the username had automatically changed. It became a portion of my real username along with a number which looked like some IP address.
Let's say my username was

Code:
abcdefgh
, it changed to

Code:
abcde28.288.42.2
. Some other settings also changed, like the Security Option was changed from Typical (Allow Unsecured Password) to Advanced.

So i deleted the connection and made a new PPPoE connection with the correct username and settings. It was fine even after a restart. But the next day the username and other settings again changed to the ones i had found in the deleted connection. Why is this happening? I have deleted all Malware/Adware,etc. from my system using Ad-aware Personal Edition. Please Help!

A friend recently changed ISPs, from Comcast cable to AT&T DSL. She was sent a 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL modem/wireless router w/ 4-port switch built-in. She also has a Linksys WRT54G v8 wireless router w/ 4-port switch.

I put the 2WIRE modem into bridged mode so we could continue using the Linksys router for wireless connectivity. I made sure to disable the wireless support in the 2WIRE router.

I had run into a problem where the Linksys router wouldn't reestablish the PPPoE connection automatically if it was lost. A firmware upgrade to version 8.00.5 seems to have addressed that problem BUT now when the router is connected, it's getting a strange subnet mask. It might not be strange but it's completely unexpected.

The IP address is aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.255. The default gateway IP address is aaa.bbb.fff.ggg, so the assigned IP address and the default gateway are on two completely different subnets but in the same class B IP network.

All of the important machines are able to connect to the Internet ok so I'm not sure if the above subnet mask is anything I should be concerned with.

Any comments or ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Peace...
 

A:Solved: Question about strange PPPoE connection information

The subnet mask of 255.255.255.255 is a valid mask for a PPPoE connection, it denotes that there is only a single allowed address.

Hello everyone,

I am facing a problem recently. I hope anyone of you can help me to solve it. Recently I have been installed Windows Eight Pro 64-bit in two of my desktop computers. One pc having motherboard Intel DG41 and the other one is Asus Sabertooth P55i. I have two external Realtek NIC card installed in both of the pcs. When I was using Windows Seven 64-bit, I installed PPPOE as follows:

=> Conrtol Pannel
=> Network and Sharing Center
=> Setup a new connection or network
=> Connect to BROADBAND (PPPOE) [something like that]

But when I am trying to install pppoe on windows eight like the same process, it shows "Unable to install PPPOE" kinds of message and reboot. I thought the NIC card driver was not installed properly so I re-install the NIC card driver and again tried but it crashes and then reboot.

The funny part is, when I plugged the Ethernet cable into my built-in NIC card (the one that is embeded on Motherboard), it doesnt reboot and installed successfully. But I need to use the external NIC card and with that I am unable to connect to PPPOE.

Can anybody help me please solving this issue? I face the same problem in both of my pc and now I have to use the built-in NIC card. Is there any solution to use the external NIC??

A:Unable to install PPPOE connection with external NIC card

I assume your external cards are WiFi is that correct ?

On my system I setup router with PPPOe and then using a usb WiFi simply used new connection.

May or may not work for you but bon chance as they say

I have installed Windows 7 Home premium on my desktop. 
 
My NIC is not identifying my network and I can't ping anything.  I have called comcast and verified my account member id and password.  I am able to connect to my laptop PPPoE but on my desktop, I can't!
 
I am having a big issue I came across some options to delte some Registry Stuff in regedit but I am not sure if this is correct?  My NIC has never had any problems in the past up until now
 
I am getting the error "Connection failed with error 711"
 
Also with my router I am also not able to have a hard wired connection from the desktop to the router.  I have been connecting with the Wireslss NIC--no issues.
 
I want a hard wired connection though for other reasons now!
 
Does anyone have a soultion for this?  I looked it up on online and get a ton of suggestions but I don't know whats correct or waht to delete from my registry .
 
Please there has to be a fix.. ?

A:Windows 7 Home Premium Problem w/NIC or PPPoE "Connection failed with error 711"

I think I'd replace the ethernet NIC or router...sounds like a hardware problem from what I see.
 
At the least, I would test the router on another system.
 
I suggest leaving the idea of "deleting things in the registry"...far outside the scope of intended actions until you have verified that the hardware is not at fault.

Like the title says...

- I have a D-Link DI-604 router
- Have been using it for over a year with only periodic disconnects (still pain in the a$S but tolerable)
- As of ~2 months ago it started with a daily connection drop
- Reason for disconnect as per Log: "PPPoE: Receive PADT TAG" ... "Disconnect PPPoE line"
- Situation became gradually more and more frequent to the point where it would not even establish connection
- The Log would read as above "PPPoE: Receive PADT TAG" ... "Disconnect PPPoE line" ... followed by ... "PPPoE try to re-connect automatically" ... followed by "PPPoE: Receive PADT TAG" ... etc. in a vicious, never ending loop
- D-Link just replaced the unit with a later version of the model, revision E1 (original was revision A2)
- New unit performs the same, no change, still will not connect
- ISP is SYMPATICO and I have no issues with the SpeedStream DSL modem on its' own



Can someone suggest what I should do? Has anyone encountered the same problem and/or found a 'fix' ?
 

A:D-Link DI-604 error: "PPPoE: Receive PADT TAG" ... Disconnect PPPoE line

Have you tried contactin your ISP to see if they are experiencing problems? They might be able to shed some more light on your siutation and work you through it. I'm sure they get these sorts of issues daily. Not that we can't help, but it might be easier from them

My MS Vista Home internet connectivity (Ethernet and WiFi) worked fine until recently. I was out of town on business for several weeks, and I had to sign up for a temporary dialup account while I was away. This account came with it's own dialup software that was installed on my laptop. After I returned home, I uninstalled the dialup software. The problem is that now many of my programs that require an Internet connection tell me I need to connect to the Internet. Clearly since I can surf the web via my Ethernet cable, my Internet connection is fine. I just need to be able to convince my many programs that it is.

Obviously this crappy dialup software I had changed something in my internet options. I've looked, but I can't seem to find what it changed that now has all of my programs thinking I'm no longer connected to the Internet. Can someone help?

(One response I got in another forum was to make sure "never dial a connection" was selected in my Internet options. I've checked and it is.)
 

A:Software says I have no Internet connection, but I do!

Try doing a system restore to a date before the dialup software install.
