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.)

Hello all,

My friend is having trouble with her laptop. Specs:

Lenovo Laptop
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
8.0 GB RAM
500 GB HDD
Intel Centrino Wireless N 1000

She has been having issues for the last few days where her computer will lose internet connection. Her other devices such as her iPhone still work properly on the WiFi. Only the laptop is affected. She says it seems to happen after a half hour so of usage. She has to restart to get it to work again.

I used TeamViewer to remote into her computer and looked at it. It didnt look like anything was out of the ordanary. I ran virus and malware scans, ran sfc /scannow to make sure it wasnt Windows corruption. All of those came back fine. I try to update the driver, but the driver installer will show a screen for about 5 seconds, disappear never to be seen again. Which kinda leads into the next problem.

There are certain files and applications that will not execute on her laptop. They will show the error:

<file path> is not a valid Win32 application.

It seems to be random. I can download one file and it will say that, but the next one will be fine. It doesnt seem to have any rhyme or reason to it. Because of this I cant get the drivers to update, so it seems that I will have to fix that issue before anything else.

Any ideas on this one?

A:Intel Centrino Wireless N 1000 Issues

The problem might be with the laptop, but the solution might be with the WAP - Wireless Access Point (router?).

You might check to see what channel the WAP is using and if it can be set to use one protocol (as opposed to b/g/n).

See the bottom of this post...
Basic Requirements Before Posting your Networking Thread
...for info on the Xirrus app.

Once the connectivity issue is resolved, we can look into the file execution (corruption?) issue.

On Tuesday night I booted up my notebook and saw that the wifi wasn't working. Instead of the standard wifi icon, it was a box with a red x in it. Starting back in November of last year, it seemed like every other day, or every two days, I would have to troubleshoot the wifi connection to get it to work. It would usually just have that little asterisk near it. And it would fix itself and stay on, but Tuesday I only got it to work twice for about 30 mins each time. At first, I couldn't get the wifi switch to stay on in Network & Connections. Then the section for Wifi didn't show up at all. I have done almost every suggestion I could find online to fix this issue. I did a system restore back to last week, when a Windows update was done and that didn't solve anything. I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers from Intel and HP twice. I have tried changing the power setting, it was already on max power. I tried resetting the IP address but got an error, I also tried to boot in Safe Mode and that did nothing.  At this point, the Intel wireless driver on shows up in device manager when I choose the show hidden drivers. The connection doesn't show up at all in Network Connections anymore. So, do I need to replace the physical wifi card or is there any other solution to try?

Hello all, I am having issue enabling the 802.11n settings for my WiFi card that is supposed to have N grade (300 Mbps) capabilities. The card standards are 802.11b/g/n. According to Intel's white sheet for the Intel? Centrino? Wireless-N 1000, it should be able to utilize the N grade WiFi speed capabilities. However, I'm not seeing the setting available in the Advanced settings of the driver. The attached screenshot shows that there are only b & g settings available. This is most inconvenient because my internet speed was just upgraded to 105 Mbps & I'd like to at least enjoy a little. I'm not getting anything above 50 Mbps. Is anyone else having this issue?

A:Where Are The N WiFi Settings For Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1000?

It's the same for ALL Intel WiFi products. Wireless Mode for Intel is basically using ABG, BG, AG, A, G, and B modes only. (see screenshot)



For Centrino series, there's a menu called "802.11n mode" and from there you can use it to enable or disable WiFi N

For 7260 series, it is called "HT mode" and if you disable that, the NIC will refuse to connect to N network and will operate on G or A.

FYI, there's a difference between what Windows say on the connection rate and the actual rate. The actual rate depends on RF environment, walls between the computer, antenna gain, and power management. The best actual speed you can get is around 40 - 50 % of the speed reported by Windows.

Getting an actual speed of 50 Mbps means that you're already connected to WiFi N. I might guess that the connection rate reported by Windows is probably 144 Mbps. 50 Mbps is close to the maximum actual throughput of 70 - 75 Mbps. You can change the settings on your router to "force" 40 MHz channel width on the 2.4 GHz band and then set the "802.11 Channel width for 2.4 GHz to" "Auto" to allow the adapter to use 40 MHz channel width.

If successful, this should give you 300 Mbps reported connection rate and around 130 - 180 Mbps of actual speed. Therefore, your 100+ Mbps internet speed should be covered provided that your environment has little to none RF interference and the laptop is within line of sight of the router.

I just recently did a Windows update and somehow it destroyed my wifi connectivity. I have tried to do system restores back a few days prior to the update to NO avail. I have removed and re-installed or attempted to install the hardware and the software several times. I have downloaded Intel Driver Update Utility to help me install the drivers for the network adapter to no avail. I am not sure what happened but I definitely don't know how to correct this problem.

I have tried so many steps I can't even remember half of them. Most of the times that Intel has done a download, it comes back as Failed and then when I reboot laptop it says installation incomplete (or something like that).

Thanks for your assistance in advance.

Dear Toshiba forum members.
First excuse me for my poor English because my native language is Dutch.

I have recently bought my third Toshiba notebook A Satellite R850-18W.

I already bought a replacement wlan adapter for the original Atheros AR9002WB adapter.
Changing the the adapter in the notebook is easy, I have already done that.

The only problem is, I couldn't get bluetooth working so I put the original Atheros adapter back in my Satellite R850. Everything is working, wifi and bluetooth.

But I want to buy a router with 5ghz band possibility and take advantage of the speed en less crowed 5ghz band. That's why I bought the Intel centrino 6235 adapter.

I need help in which steps to follow to get everything working like it should.

Which software do I need to un-install to avoid problems.
Do I need to un-install the drivers of the Atheros adapter first?

I think and hope it should be possible to make such a minor change in configuration of this notebook?


I guess there isn't an easy way although Toshiba has also notebooks were they use the Intel centrino advanced-N 6235 adapter. I was kind of hoping on an easy software install of drivers and the Toshiba connection software.

Hope anyone can help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

I saw some people having trouble with extremely slow wireless connections using an Intel Centrino Wireless n-1030 card. The original thread is closed, so the problem may already be solved, but if anyone is still experiencing this problem, here is what worked for me:

This NIC is a dual band card (802.11 + bluetooth), and with some routers having the bluetooth enabled really slowed down the 802.11n connection (it didn't seem to happen with my netgear router, but when I switched to linksys, WHAMMO!).

Anyway, when I disabled the Bluetooth adapter in Device Manager the problem was completely solved (uhhhh except I need to use a dongle to make my bluetooth mouse work now... small price to pay IMO)

Anyway, just thought I'd share my experience. Hope it can help someone.

Help!!   After one of MS's updates in the recent past, I am having issues with wifi. The icon showing wifi connection does not appear. When connected to wifi, everything is fine and then drops connection. Upon viewing settings and attempting to reconnect, it may or may not connect.  If connection occurs, will often drop.   All updates for this laptop are current.  I would like to replace the N-2230 wifi card with a newer 2-band card and would appreciate any thoughts on what cards are compatible with this laptop. I am using a Netgear Nighthawk DST AC 1900 router and would like to install a wifi card which will not only resolve my wifi issue, but enable me to optimize my connection... Thanks!

A:Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230

The antenna setup that is present in your notebook restricts you from installing a dual band or more modern wifi adapter module.  Your notebook's antenna setup is a 1 x 1. For what you are asking about,  a 2 x 2 antenna setup is required. If you want 802.11ac then your only simple option is to use a USB version. Perhaps it is time to consider upgrading to a more modern notebook.

I have been having issues with my wireless adapter (Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N6150). it has been a few weeks that this problem has been occurring. The adapter will all of a sudden disappear. Initially I would just scan for hardware changes in my device manager and that would do the trick but now it does not. So there are days I start my computer and the wireless adapter is no where to be found. Troubleshooting does not solve the problem. Also I browsed through the internet and i saw that people who were having this issue they would disable there 802.11n Mode that helped for a few days but it has started to fail again. Now for the past 2 weeks also I have had three crashes, sometimes by restarting the computer the wireless adapter would appear again and so on three separate occasions I tried restarting the computer but it failed to shutdown and I got the Blue screen of death. (it said driver power state failure)

Does anyone have any information as to what I can do to fix this problem. Can anyone please explain what is wrong with my laptop? PLease any help is appreciated.

I have a relatively new (few months) laptop of my own running Win7 x64 with an "Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030" wireless network adapter. For some reason, I have serious problems connecting to most wireless networks. On my home network there are rarely problems, but when I attempt to any other network (college, or public hotspot, or neighbor's open wireless) there are often issues.

By "issues" I mean: when I first attempt to connect to the network in question, I'm usually able to connect to the first few sites I try to access, but usually after a second or a minute or a few minutes of normal connectivity, I'm suddenly unable to access anything. The browser's response is that DNS lookup has failed; when I record an IP address (via ping-command prompt) and type it in manually after this point, the browser's response is that "##.##..." is taking too long to respond, etc..." No other program is able to connect either. I have tried setting different DNS servers but it has had no visible effect. At this point, the only thing I can do to reconnect is to either wait a long time for the connection to reestablish itself (which can take an hour or more and isn't guaranteed) or to go to Device Manager and disable and reenable the wireless adapter, which then *sometimes* allows me to reconnect for a few seconds or a minute or an hour before connectivity breaks again.

Updating the drivers helped the problem somewhat, but we were still experiencing dropped packets or extremely high latency when connected. Upon a suggestion from one of my coworkers, I tried adjusting the performance/power settings in Windows and that seemed to have fixed the problem. The laptop has been running fine ever since.

Hello,

I'm having a strange problem. Intel released new drivers to update from version 15.11 to 16.11. I downloaded them from Intel website, ran install, success. When I go into Device Manager to check on the driver version, I see it is still 15.11. I have tried a number of things, including deleting the drivers from the Device Manager and running the install again. However, in this case Windows 8 automatically installs even older drivers, version 14, dated 2011. I'd like to try the new drivers because it takes very long for the net to comeback after I wake up my laptop. Version 15.11 was installed by Windows Update, those drivers are dated January 2014.

Hello,

I sent my computer in for repairs a while back and now the wireless card won't work. It can't find any signals unless I plug in the one from my desktop. I went to computer/properties/device manager and saw that the wireless card (Intel (R) Centrino (R) Wireless-N 1030) has a yellow "!" next to it. The properties tab says, "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)".

I have tried searching for new drivers automatically but it says they are up to date. I downloaded the latest drivers directly from Intel and tried to manually update them but it said that the drivers are up to date again. This problem occurs whenever I update my computer. I did a system restore and it worked fine for about a month, but once it updated it did the same thing again. There is no restore point to go to this time, so I'm stuck.

Anyone know what I should do?

What usually works is to connect using a wired connection then go to the Windows Update Center and install all the recent drivers for your new system, this should install the latest driver for the Intel NIC.

If you want the full 300Mbps this NIC is capable of then you will need to use the 802.11N Only setting in your routers set up page, using the mixed modes will slow your connection speed way down to wireless G speeds of 54Mpbs.

Or you could try using the drivers in the link below.

A:Intel centrino wireless N-2230 having slow connection speeds

If your router is dropping network when there's too much users, it might be overheating or overloaded and that your Wireless NIC might not be the problem at all. Playing 3D games that require online multiplayer is very demanding for a router that is not "high performance" capable. It might be the case where the router is overloaded when someone is playing an online multiplayer 3D game while others are streaming HD or using a Skype call VOIP all at the same time. You can try unplugging your router for 30 seconds and plugging it back in and see if ping spikes are gone.

Hello there everyone,I am experiencing a strange problem with my y510p. I can properly connect to the internet via wifi, I have sorted out a few config problems which prevented me from connecting, but recently I am getting worried by the network card's behavior. I have recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 (I don't think that's the cause of my issue, but just in case). I noticed that my throughput was, according to Intel's PROSet Wireless WiFi Connection Utility, of about 130 mbps on wireless-n, at about 1 meter away (seriously) from the modem, which is clearly able to do high-speed 802.11n, because the model is kind of new. This modem came from the ISP with two different SSID-s active, and it's able to do 4, so I thought that I could merge the two active networks (set the same SSID and settings on both). Then I set 3 SSID-s active (all identical), then 4, then just 1, and I kept testing this way to see if I could get 270mbps. Not a chance, it stayed at 130. Eventually I found the solution. The system upgrade had set the network adapter settings back to 20mhz only, so I set it back to auto and I started to get 270mbps (intermittent speed) again. But... that didn't sort everything out. I was running an Ookla Speed Test and getting normal speeds when I noticed a slight clicking noise coming from the laptop. And it was absolutely NOT the hard disk. I could hear the hard disk making its usual sounds, and the other noise came from another side of the computer. The noise stopped wh... Read more

hi M B.,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
That's indeed odd if the clicking noise is comming from the wireless card. One thing that you can try is to re-seat the wireless antenna cables (see page 42 of the hardware maintenance manual).
 
As for the hard drive, to ensure that it's not the one that's making the clicking noise, try to disable the wireless connection run a diagnostic on the drive (i.e. via HD Tune) or put a load on it (i.e. via CrystalDiskmark) and observe.

I currently own a HP dv6t-6b00, Product Number QJ920AV#ABA Laptop with Bios F.1b 10/23/2012 and theINTEL Core I7-2820QM. My WiFi adapter is an Intel Centrino Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150. The computer came configured with Windows 7 Pro. A few weeks ago, I got the free Windows 10 Pro upgrade, and now I can not connect to any wireless networks.I tried to update the drivers of my Wimax 6150 but I received a message saying that Windows 10 does not support any drivers for that adapter. I contacted both HP Support and Windows support unsuccessfully.Is there any Wireless network adapter (White listed or not) that I can use in my dv6 with Windows 10? Or,Are there any drivers that are supported by Windows 10 that will work with my current wireless adapter?Thanks in advance to anyone that can help!!

Hi, i have upgraded my laptop to windows 10 recently. after upgradation, my intel wireless centrino n2230 card has started connectivity problems. it turns off and donot detects any wifi network where as network is available and can be detected by other devices. i disable and re-enable network device in device manager then it starts working. this connectivity issues happen oftenly. i have upgraded driver through widows 10 as well but issue is not fixed. i have googled this problem and seen that no one has found a permanent and reasonable solution to it so i have decided to replace this wireless adapter with some one that has compatibility with my notebook and operating system as well. please suggest me few device models (both single and dual band) that as compatible with my book and windows 10. since i want to upgrade the card so i would prefer some device with dual band and 2 stream. Thanks..may

My laptop came pre installed with windows 8 , needless to say I stuck with it for 7 months then decided to go back to windows 7.

I cleared the HD and installed windows 7 today, however I cant get my network adapter to work so no internet.

I have tried downloading the correct drivers but its not working. When I go to device manager I can see the list of devices not working with yellow exclamation mark

When I open the network controller up it has Manufacturer Unknown.

The drivers for this device are not installed (code 28)

Hi there. I'm having an issue with this wireless card on my laptop. I want to add that my expertise level in computers is not high, but I am a little knowledgeable. I would estimate my skill being about a 4 or 5 on a 1-10 scale, but can follow directions well. I also don't often know the tech lingo unless I've read about it online. I will include some of the laptop information below.

To put it simply, I replaced my wireless card in my laptop and I got the Intel 6200 to work, but whenever I restart my computer, or disable and enable the wireless card, it stops working. In order to get it to work again, I go to "device manager", right click, and uninstall it. Then I "Scan for hardware changes" and it works again. Each time I want to use it after my computer is turned off, I have to go through this process, and add my wireless passwords again. Obviously this is a hassle I would prefer not to go through. I'm about to send the card back thinking that it has some problem.

Asus N53SM-ES72
Windows 7 Professional
- 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7-2670QM processor
Previous wireless card: Atheros Model AR58195 (worked fine, I just wanted a better one)

As the Atheros card worked, I don't think this has anything to do with my wireless router, but it is a TP-LINK TL-WDR3600.

Anyway, I appreciate any possible help I can get to prevent my wireless card from stopping upon computer restart! If no one has any ideas, I will just send it back as defective.

Try updating your wireless driver, check to make sure your WiFi is enabled as well:

To do that, go to: Network and Sharing Center.
Then, click on: Change Adapter Settings.
Check if your WiFi is enabled, if not: Right click on your WiFi and click on Enable.

Hello, I have a Lenovo v570 1066 laptop. It came with Windows 7, but over the years I upgraded to Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. After the recent Creators update I started having hardware problems with Windows 10. I decided to downgrade back to Windows 8.1. I did a complete wipe of the hard drive and installed Windows 8.1 successfully. I installed all the most recent Windows updates and drivers for my hardware. However, every time I reboot or shut down the computer and boot up again, the WiFi stops working. If I go into the device manager and reinstall the driver then it works fine, but as soon as I reboot it happens again. Essentially every time that I restart the machine I have to reinstall the driver for the wireless adapter. This is a link to the "steps" from the Windows Step Recorder showing what I am talking about. Steps recorded for updating driver I found this link on another Lenovo page where this person solved connection problems by changing the boot priority of Windows Boot Manager, however, I have no way to get into BIOS/UEFI. I have tried using the keyboard during bootup to no avail. I have also tried the following method (Steps recorded for trying to access UEFI) followed by Restart Now, Troubleshooting, and Advanced Options, but the tile for UEFI Firmware settings is not there. Has anybody else had a similar problem? Does anybody know how to fix this? Thanks!

I have an hp pavilion dv6 1355dx win 7 64bit intel core 2 duo. The wifi was working fine with my remembered connections and connected automatically within range. Then it started saying limited connection and would not let me browse the internet. After trouble shooting it said "There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter" So I uninstalled reinstalled Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN it was listed under network adapter so I'm assuming that means it is the adapter but I was told it is the driver. Still confused on that. A friend suggested that I delete my remembered connections now it just says no connections available.

Under network adapter properties even tried changing the channel width for band 2.4 thats Value was set 20 MHz only to Auto, as I was instructed by my college IT guy. I've searched for the drivers installed the one on the hp support site. According to my model i have Atheros Wireless LAN Adapter, in the devices supported list nothing that I thought was the adapter or driver was listed. Downloaded the file they said contains the driver for that adapter...didn't seem to do anything other than install. Tried rebooting still nothing. Anyone have any ideas or is it just a lost cause?

Thanks

Allison

You could try backing up your data and re-loading your system from your backup software or from a restore point from before the start of your problem? That way the network adaptor will have a working driver installed.

Been out of the new computer thing for a few years, but now I need a new laptop. Is there a difference between "intel core 2 duo", and the "intel core 2 duo centrino"? If so what are they?

Also how does AMD compare to the intel stuff?

reagards,
 

A:Intel core 2 duo & Centrino

You'd have to purchase a high end amd cpu to contend with the mid ranged c2d models.

As far as c2d and centrino, the difference is pwr consumption and performance. About 40% with some models.

Hi Folks,

The last computer I have purchased was about 4 years ago so I am a little behind on the technology.

I would like to purchase a Sony laptop to be used for home use, internet surfing and downloading music. It will not be used for gaming.

My question - in general is an Intel Centrino Duo Processor sufficient enough to handle this ?

( Other specs - OS Vista, 3 GB DDR2 RAM, 250 GB HD - DVD Burner.)
 

A:Intel Centrino Duo Processor Question

It will. It won't be the fastest possible, but it will handle general use just fine.

Hi I was wondering which is more powerful for a laptop/notebook. Intel Core Centrino duo processor vs. Pentium 4 with hyperthreading. I know they both have different speeds like 2300-2600 for the centrino one and pentium 4 3-3.8ghz but when I asked some coworkers which they thought is better, all said the centrino one because of the powersaving and the duo processor. However, when I search Alienware's site for laptops, the pentium 4 processor computer seems to be significantly higher in price with all other options configured the same. Why would this be if the Centrino duo processor is faster and uses less power? Which is generally a better chip? What would the
Intel Core Duo Processor T2300 1.66GHz 2MB Cache 667MHz FSB
be equivalent to in terms of a Intel Pentium 4 Processor 531 w/ HT Technology for example speed wise? I'm so confused right now. I would greatly appreciate a response! Please forgive me if it's a no brainer.
