Laptop quit connecting to wireless router at work but home is fine

Q: Laptop quit connecting to wireless router at work but home is fine

I work at a place where we can bring our personal laptops and connect to the internet using a wireless connection. We use WEP and security type is shared. We have a password we have to enter.

I have a Lenovo Idea Pad Y530 laptop. Have connected for years to this router. Well, I went to a website to download the free version of World OF Warcraft and during the download I lost connection and had to reboot. I think that is how it went. Now I am unable to connect to the internet at work but I can still connect to my personal wireless network at home on the same laptop.

I have reformatted and still unable to connect. I am able to connect to the router but then a red X appears between the router and the internet. Everyone else is still able to connect with their laptops and I brought my old dell in and can connect with no problems.

I had been using AVG free. I even uninstalled that and turned off my firewall.

When I click on the X I get this report:

There may be a problem with your Domain Name Server (DNS) config.
On both laptops I ran the command ipconfig/all

Dell laptop that is currently connected to work wireless shows that there is info under the Tunnel adapter Local area connection 6. On the Lenovo this are is blank showing nothing. I think if u do an ipconfig/all you will understand better what I am saying

My Aspire has quit connecting to the wireless router.  My Kindle connects so I know it's not the router.  I've checked the bluetooth and all drivers are up to date and Windows 8 says everything is working.  The troubleshooter doesn't find any problem with the Bluetooth.  I can connect via a hardwire with no issues.  I've checked the settings and airplane mode is set to allow wireless connection and the Bluetooth is ON.  I'm not sure what else to check.  Is there someway to get the Bluetooth to talk to my router?  Could this be due to a Windows update? 

A:Aspire E11 has quit connecting to wireless router.

vgmiller100,
 
The Bluetootth connection is not what should be connecting to the router, it should be your wireless card that is. If it was working and just suddenly stopped, have you tried a system restore to when it worked? Something simple like a Windows update that did not install correctly could have created this issue.

I have a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10. When I am at work the wifi connection works perfectly fine. However when I go home the wifi is extremely spotty. It will work and then randomly I will have trouble opening a webpage or checking my email. It will say my network connection is unavailable.

Hi
I alreadfy have a home network. Cable modem connection serving my computer and telephone (I have vonage broadband phone) through the linksys adapter provided by vonage. I purchased a wireless router and I need to hook it up. If I connect the wireless routers internet port(WAN) to an ethernet port in the linksys adapter, it doesnt work. However, when I connect it port to port (ethernet port of the wireless router to an ethernet port of the linksys adapter), the internet connectionw works. However, I am unable to activate the wireless network.

I tried connecting the wirless router directly to the modem (removing the linksys adapter) and carried out the installation provided in a CD by the manufacture and it wont work fine.

I cant get rid of the linksys adapter as it is essential for my broadband phone.

Any suggestions? Please help..


Thanks

A:Connecting a Wireless router to an existing home network

You should have bought a wireless access point instead of a router.. *mutter*

"unable to activate" means what? Increadibly heavy feeling creeps into your hands making you unable to operate the computer?

Some more information here would really help.. Symptoms, computers and operating systems involved, types of wireless equipment, the router configuration etc.

Hi,

I have just joined up to sky broadband and have been sent a d-link router. I followed the set up disk that came with it and the Internet worked fine while it was connected through the Ethernet cable. I disconnected the cable and tried to connect wirelessly. My laptop found the new network to which I selected connect. I typed in the key code supplied with the router and my laptop tells me it's connecting. Once it connects it states that the network is unidentified and can only connect locally.

This has confused me as my iPhone works fine on the new network but my laptop can't.

My laptop is a Samsung R20 and runs with OS vista. I have never had problems like this with any other network I have connected to.

Please let me know your thoughts

thank you in advance.

does the wireless router have CAT5 ports. if so why use the second router.

plug your internet connection into the WAN port on the router and connect the wired computers to the other CAT5 ports on the wireless router. then of course your wireless boxes will connect via no cables... your hardware is configured.

for the question about setting up the network do the following...

Doubleclick on your my network places icon. and on the right side panel click on network setup wizard. follow this on all computers.

Could use an explanation please. Have a laptop running XP Home with D-Link wireless adaptor. Installed a Belkin wireless router and ethernet cabled it to a cable modem. Life is/was good as far as accessing internet. But, then I connected the router directly to the laptop with an eternet cable into the laptops ethernet port. COuldn't get on the internet!
Can the laptop only have one way to connect at a time, meaning either/or wireless adaptor or ethernet cable to router??
When connecting the router to laptop should the router's power cable be disconnected and the laptop turned off?
Also tried connecting the router to laptop using a USB/ethernet adaptor and oneof the laptop's USB ports. After idle time was unable to reconnect to internet until I ebooted the laptop. Sure would like to understand this connecting stuff better. Appreciate some help.

Hi there,

I have a Toshiba Satellite M50, it recently came out of the box and is working fine.

I can connect to the internet via my Linksys WRT54G router if I use a cable but I am having problems trying to get it to connect wirelessly.

I called Toshiba and they asked me to check in my device manager for the wireless card but it's not there. According to them it should be in there but it's not.
They suggested I use the system recovery disk and return to factory settings but that seems a bit extreme and I have already moved a lot of stuff onto the laptop.

It comes with a bunch of pre-installed Toshiba tools called 'Toshiba Assist' and 'ConfigFree' which are of no help at all and just seem to confuse the matter.

I'm at a loss as to know where to even start to fix this. I don't know where to look to see if they maybe forgot to install a wireless card (The little switch and light work fine .. to switch on the wireless connection but nothing happens)

The icon beside the clock shows and if I mouse over it it says "Local Area Connection. A network cable is unplugged"

If I open 'Network Connections' there are 2 items in there
One is a '1394 Connection' and it says 'Connected, Firewalled 1394 Net Adapter'

The other says 'Local Area Connection' and it says 'Network Cable Unplugged, Firewalled Marvell Yukon 88E8036 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller'

I just switched from Clear to CenturyLink DSL internet about a week ago (Westel Model 7500 modem/router) and ever since then my work laptop has been having trouble connecting to the internet, both wirelessly and through LAN.

Every other device in my home works absolutely fine, and my laptop is able to connect to other wireless networks no problem.

I am able to connect with my work laptop to my home internet occasionally (I am on it now), but after a few hours I always get kicked off again. I've figured out that if I remove my new network from my Preferred Networks list and reboot my computer, then reconnect to my network, I can get on for a few hours. But I always get kicked off again and I have to repeat this process.

When I get kicked off, my wireless icon indicates that I am connected to the network with excellent connectivity, but I have no internet and no browser pages open.

I contacted my company's tech support about this, and their solution was to send me a brand new computer. Great for me, since my old one was a dinosaur, but this new computer has the exact same issue as my old one.

I don't want to have to restart my computer every few hours just to get internet. Any ideas? I am completely baffled, but think that there must be some setting on my computer put in place by my company's IT department that does not mesh with this new internet.

Hi Joeyz,

You might want to release the current IP configuration and renew it.
Open up CMD (Start > Search > cmd, run as administrator).

Type:

I was online the other night and suddenly disconnected from the internet. My desktop is a wired connection that was wired through the Netgear Wireless-G Router WGR614 v-9. I couldn't understand why I would not have internet so first I checked my modem, everything seemed fine. So when I took the router out of the equasion and wired my computer directly to the modem it worked fine. I have tried resetting the router, using a different ethernet cord, and unplugging it for 10+minutes. No luck. And since I'm pretty computer illiterate, I have no other ideas. Any suggestions?

thanks.

The issue is complicated. For starters, I have been experiencing trouble connecting my laptop to the internet through our cable modem. I did live in a dorm on a college network with ethernet if that affects anything. My home computer is a Dell desktop. It has no ethernet ports so we use a USB cable to connect to the cable modem. However, when I disconnect the USB cable from my PC and connect to my laptop, my laptop has trouble even detecting it. Sometimes a Local Area Network Connection will not even show up. In device manager, the USB connection has a yellow exclamation point next to it.Additionally, I have tried disconnecting the USB cable from my PC to eliminate that connection and then hooked up my ethernet cable from my laptop to the modem's ethernet port. When I do this, nothing at all happens.

To complicate the problem, I called my provider (G Force) and asked what the problem was. I was recommended to pick up a wireless router to eliminate the conflict. I got a Linksys WRT54G. Once I got home i realized that I needed an ethernet port on my PC to install the router software on my PC. I decided to try and bypass my PC all together and install through the laptop even though I can't get a connection through any cables. I seemed to have installed it successfully minus the connecting to the internet step. I just skipped it; the installation said that everything was established except for the cable internet connection. I think i had the cables set up right (one et... Read more

A:Cable Modem - Home PC - Laptop - WIreless Router Issues

A minimum requirement when switching the device connected to the modem is to power cycle (unplug for 30 seconds or so) the modem. It is not clear to me that you did that every time.

Reset the router to factory default settings (hold the recessed reset button for 10 to 20 seconds, or consult the manual for precise instructions).

Unplug the modem and router and shut down computers.

Leaving the modem's USB port unconnected, connect modem to router's WAN port and computer(s) to router LAN port(s).

Plug in modem; plug in router; boot computer(s).

If you don't get a connection to the router skip to the ipconfig /all information below.

Type the router's default LAN address (192.168.1.1?) into your browser and login to the router. Look at the WAN status to see if it got a good IP configuration.

If the router did not get a good IP configuration (and you never got a good ethernet connection to the modem) there are several possible reasons:

1. Like my service, for some reason you need to register the modem as if it is a new one when switching from USB to ethernet or vice versa;

2. Your ISP is one of the few that tracks the MAC address of the device connected to the modem; if this is the case you have to clone the (USB connnection's) MAC address of the desktop to the router's WAN. EDIT: or call your ISP and register your router's WAN MAC address.

3. Modem's ethernet port is bad;

4. Cable from modem to router is bad.

I'm having an issue connecting to my wireless router. I can connect fine with security disabled, but it doesn't connect if I enable WPA. It says there's a "timeout" issue when I try to connect with WPA enabled.

No one else is having issues connecting with their laptops and smartphones, so it must be a problem with my computer.

Hi
I have a laptop which is configured to run at the office on a wireless network.
I have installed a wireless router at home to share my broadband connection.
The laptop is 'talking' to the home pc wirelessly with an 'excellent' strength signal and it is secure etc but I can't access the internet on the laptop.
I have followed a couple of other users posts in this forum to check firewalls etc and was just going through the
start,programs,accessories,communications, networkset up wizard.
I did this first on the host computer and set up a new network.
I then went to the laptop and it told me that
'this computer belongs to a domain. Therefore you cannot use this wizard to set up a network.

I then went to add a new user to the laptop to see if this would allow me set up as a different user but it told me it didn't trust me or something !!!!!!!
Any ideas, I only want to browse the internet on the lapotp.!!

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:

Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Server
TCP/IP Netbios helper
Workstation

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.

Hello,

I have an 8 port "wired" router from Linksys that I have been using in conjunction to a wireless access point which had been plugged into one of the open ports on the wired router. Lately I have been having connection issues with the WAP so I decided it may be time to upgrade. Not thinking about it, I picked up a new Linksys E1000 wiress router (as opposed to a WAP) and, after a lengthy support call with Linksys, got that up and running.

So I have operability for both wired and wireless devices, however I have noticed a substantial slow down on my wired devices. I also just upped the plan with my ISP to increase my bandwidth which I see on the wired PCs but not on the wireless which seem less. Would a WAP be faster than a wireless router by nature?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

I have Qwest/CenturyLink DSL, and recently replaced the Actiontec M1000 modem which crapped out after 5 years of service. Replaced it with a Netgear DM111PSP v2 router/modem. Now I cannot get either of my two routers, the Linksys WRT54G or WRT160N V2 to broadcast wireless internet. I've spent the most time on the WRT160N. It will broadcast a wireless signal, but devices that attempt to connect to the internet time out while "obtaining IP address". BTW, I just happen to have two wireless routers on hand, I only need one to work.

I can get internet through the hard wire connection. I have the Netgear modem hooked up to the "internet" port of the WRT160N router, and the computer is connected to one of the four ethernet ports on the back of the router. I can access both router and modem setup pages using this setup. The Netgear modem is set up for DHCP server, PPPoA encapsulation, and gets its DNS address dynamically from the ISP. The WRT160N is also set up for automatic DHCP configuration. These are the settings given by running each set up wizard, and this has set me up for some DHCP conflicts.

I think that setting up a dual modem/router in transparent bridging mode (PPPoE) in theory turns off the DHCP, allowing the WRT160N to handle DHCP, but I have no luck even getting my hard-wired internet connection to work if I switch from PPPoA to PPPoE mode. Even if I cut the WRT160N out of the loop and connect the computer direct to the DM111PSP. No internet,... Read more

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

I'm trying to use a router to establish a wireless connection with a machine running XP Home Edition, Service Pack 2. I've connected successfully in the past with other machines (including now, as I write this), so it doesn't seem to be the router or the modem that's the problem. What's more, it's not XP, since there's another machine that can connect fine.

So, I'm stumped. I've contacted both my ISP and the manufacturer of the router, but not much help there.

Any thoughts? The machine sees the wireless connection fine, will attempt to connect and will actually say that it was successful in connection -- but there's no access to the internet and the status is actually limited or no connectivity.

Hello Guys,

I am having trouble with my wireless connection. It was working fine till a couple of days back and then started acting up. Let me explain the problem in detail.

System connects to the router. It shows full signal. After 10-15 seconds the wireless gets disconnected. After that the behaviour is quite varied. Sometimes the router itself is not recongnized. Sometimes the router is recognized but the system doesnt connect. If I force it to then it again says cannot connect to a hidden network. After a while maybe 4-5 mins later it recongnizes and tries connecting again sometimes it succeeds sometimes it doesnt.

My System Specifications are given below.

2. Processsor - Intel COre 5-3317U CPU @1.70 Ghz
3. Windows 7 Hope Premium - 64 Bit OS
4. Wireless Network Adaptor - Intel Centrino Advaced N-6235

A:Connecting to Wireless Router keeps connecting and disconnecting

I hate to say it, but since you have done everything I would have done, its possible the wireless adapter is broken/not functioning correctly. Is the product still under warranty? Especially since you stated that other devices connect just fine.
So its probably not the router.
The only other thing I can think of to try would be to buy another wireless router and test it with that.
If you have no problems, something is amiss.
You could also set your router back to factory defaults and try again.

I have a BEC Technologies 7402 TM (NOT GTM) adsl wired modem/router that my telephone company gave me when I switched to DSL. There are 4 LAN ports on the back of the modem/router, a line port that my telephone cable is connected to, and a console port that I don't use. 2 of the LAN ports are being used. One is connected to my cable box, the other has an ethernet cord that runs halfway around my house, through a wall and into a wall jack that my desktop computer is connected to. I only want to use the wireless router to connect to my Wii and one laptop, I would like to keep my desktop connection wired. I had previously tried to connect to xbox live by connecting my xbox to one of the LAN ports but I could never get it to work, so now I just switch the ethernet cords between my xbox and computer in the wall jack whenever I want to use one or the other. Will I be able to connect a wireless router to one of the LAN ports and receive a signal or will I have to connect the wireless router to the wall jack that my desktop is hooked to, and run the connection through the router?

I have a sagem 3304 wifi modem router provided by the telecoms company. it has a limited wifi range and in my experience of wifi it also has frequent dropouts/connection problems. we connect the desktop pc to it by ethernet and that's just fine.

we also were given (by a 3rd party) a belkin n1 wireless router (the model without modem) and would like to try it out to be the wifi router. The idea is to connect it by ethernet to the sagem and place it in a more central part of the property. I reckon about 15m of ethernet cable. we would disable the wifi on the sagem. had we been given the belkin model with internal modem, this would not be an issue and we would not need to use the sagem at all - that is not meant to sound ungrateful!!

-no luck through wireless - this is the error message I get:

This webpage is not available:
The server at www.google.com can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.

How do I fix this - I suppose it's some simple setting somewhere, just don't know where to go to or what to change. Thanks in advance for your help!

Comp A: 1 Vista Home X32 PC (that is wired into a WRT54G router) w/ Windows firewallComp B: 1 Windows XP Professional Laptop w/ Zone alarm (free) firewall connected to the network via wirelessComp C: 1 Vista Home Premium X64 Laptop w/ Windows firewall connected to the network via wireless
Here are some notes to highlight what is going on:
Originally, Comp A and Comp B were networked together with no issuesYesterday, I purchased Comp C and am trying to include this computer into the network
Comp A and Comp B can communicate w/ no issues and both can access Comp C w/ no issuesComp C can access Comp B, but CAN NOT acess Comp A
All comps can PING each other w/ no issuesWhen Comp C tries to Access Comp A, this Error message is displayed: 'Comp A' is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.

Really good, well written post. Bumping it up and I hope someone can help you. BTW, are you running any anti-virus software? If so, did you turn them off?

I have a PC desktop computer with XP Pro, and I'm running a wired network both at home and at work. At home the computer connects to the internet without a problem. At work I get limited or no connectivity. I've tried other computers on the same internet connection, and they work fine. On the computer from home, I've flushed the IP uninstalled and re-installed the ethernet card, used xp winsock repair software (This usually works on 99 percent of the situations), replaced the cat 5, checked all the tcp-ip settings, tried pinging an ip address, (nothing), and still nothing works. I'm not a novice at this, but I'll be darned if I can think of anything else to try. Help? BTW the work network is running from the modem to a switch. The home network is running from the modem to a router.

Thanks,

Charlie
 

A:Limited or no connectivity at work, works fine at home

Hi cquante, and welcome to TSG.

Any chance you can post full IPCONFIG /ALL results for the computer when it can not connect at work as well as for one of the computers at work that can connect?

I have recently purchased a new laptop (less than a week ago) and since purchase I have had the same recurring problem. Coincidentally, my wireless router is brand new also, and so it makes the situation even more difficult to eradicate. My laptop connects to the router wirelessly without a hitch, however, every five minutes or so, a small yellow exclaimation mark appears alongside the 'connection symbol' and it says there is either 'No Internet Access', or 'No Network Access', despite the fact it is connected to the wireless and has a full strength connection. However, my brother's laptop connects and surfs the web seamlessly, as well as the family desktop PC and various mobile devices. I am reluctant to return the laptop back to the store, please HELP???????????

Last night I went into my girlfriend's Linksys BEFW11S4 secured router's setting to try to find out the security key (new wi-fi PDA's) as she forgot. I reset the router, and now it produces signal but is "limited or no connectivity". I changed the WEP, but under the password section I for some reason can not change that password. Help please!

if you reset the router, you will need to set up all the settings again - leave the encryption off and make sure it all works first - then put it back on again

Hi everyone: Iím having an extremely frustrating problem connecting to my Netgear DG384G v3 wireless router in my flat.

In short:

Ever since I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Pro, internet browsers do not detect a connection to the internet despite a wireless connection being detected in the network connections (and the icon in the system tray) when my wireless adapter is plugged into my PC. Connection problems only occurred after the reformat, another PC in my flat connects wirelessly to our router with no problems (before, during & after the time I reformatted; Iím posting this using his PC) and the router config settings have definitely not been changed in any way so its not a router problem. It appears that the wireless adapter is able to detect a signal from the router but the router is not sending information to the adapter (I canít even connect to the router setup IP address 192.168.0.1)?

More detailed:

1) I wiped the PCís harddrive then reinstalled Windows XP Pro Ė I thought the recovery disk would have drivers with it (like others Iíd used) but it didnít so I had to manually find nVidia chipset & 3com Ethernet controller drivers and SP1 (for USB 2.0 functionality), download them on another PC and transfer and install them on mine. I got SP2, this didnít change anything, I changed back to SP1, still no change to connectivity.

2) When my Netgear WG111 v2 wireless adapter is plugged into a USB port, Windows recognises it as a d... Read more
