Q: intermittent loss of wireless connection running vista

Hey all,
Newbie to this site, I have had a quick look around, but can see the same problems as I am having(alhough I am bound to be proven wrong... which I dont mind at all).

I have a HP laptop, 2.5 years old. I am on Virgin broadband on a wireless netgear router(supplied by virgin).
I am using WPA Personal encryption.
When I fire up the laptop, it takes a while, but everything fires up ok.
I can connet to the internet wirelessly no problems at all.

Then, when it decides to slip me a length, I get a problem connecting, and I get the blank page ashing me to diagnose connection problems,
I get a balloon pop up saying that I only now have limited connection to the internet. It comes up with useless information thats does not help solve things.
The only way to get commection back is to reboot the pc, and then it works fine for a bit again. The timing varies, but it is very frustrating.
I have ran windows update etc, installed latest router drivers.
I run F-Secure, and also SPYBOT S&D to keep my system clean.
Neither program find anything mallicious or anything like that

I think the problem is pc related as when I get this problem, I can stll connect to the router no problem via my mobile wirelessly, with no issues

When this does happen, when I try clicking the 2 little pcs in the taskbar, I get nothing up, or it runs very very very very slow.

Any Ideas Guys and Gals?

Is it likely a software issue and am I going to have to wipe everything out and start again, or is it likely the wireless thingy in my laptop, and I am doomed regardless.

One last thing, when I do get this problem, If I hardwire via ethernet to the same network, I then get connection.

Over to any help appreciated,
Thanks
Ronnie

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

First things I might try are:
Download and install any more current router firmware from the netgear site.
Change the wireless channel being used.1/6/11 in US,if you are here.

Hi,

i have a toshiba equium A100-02L Laptop running windows vista home premium and am using a Netgear wireless router supplied by Sky Broadband.

i am currently having intermittent internet connection i.e the internet can connect for anything between 1 min to 2 hours with no problems but more often than not it will disconnect giving me only "local only" connection.

i am also running a xbox 360 on the same router using a ethernet cable connection which again is intermittent. When i test the connection via the xbox it states that there may be a problem with the DNS settings.

Can anyone help its driving me mad!!!!!!!! also i am using the wireless card built into the laptop.

Good evening.
I am hoping someone can advise me on my intermittent network issue.

I have read of a few users with similar issues but I don't know how to resolve mine.
I use Vista Ultimate on a Intel Core 2 pc with 3GB of RAM. I do mostly accounts stuff and general admin with limited use of simple web tools like wordpress etc. I am on the Orange network in the UK.
My pc has been running perfectly for at least 3 years without any significant issues. And I cannot recall loading /installing anything recently that would cause the issue with my wireless access.

I am able to connect to the internet for very short periods before the connection slows to a crawl. My task bar usually shows that the connection is still present as does the Network and Sharing Center but it intermittently disconnects then reconnects.
When I click "diagnose and repair", I sometimes get the following or similar error messages;
"Windows has confirmed that this computer is currently experiencing a network connectivity problem"
Other users on the home network are a laptop running windows 7 and a netbook running linux and occasionally android or iphones. In general these machines are rarely affected though my next error message can be a show stopper which requires a router reset.

Right now I have this error message "Windows cannot find any networks". (I copy and paste this message, then reboot, open my browser and hopefully can post!)

Hi everyone. This is my first ever post so please bear with me! I'm pretty good with XP PCs but am new to networking (and Windows Vista!).

I have a PC running XP which connects to the internet perfectly everytime. Its hard-wired (Ethernet) to a D-Link DSL-2740B ADSL2+ modem router (Wireless-N).

I also have a Toshiba Satellite laptop (L300-1AP) running Vista. I have disabled the integrated wireless card and installed a D-Link Wireless-N Rangebooster USB adapter (EWA-140EU).

At first everything worked like a dream (the laptop is only three weeks old) but after two weeks, I started to lose connection. Webpages would just not load. Another symptom is that the laptop simply can't find the connection when it searches although it can detect other wireless networks in my street...its like the router just stops transmitting to the laptop. I have the laptop right next to the router so its not a range issue.

I called D-Link tech support (spoke to a guy clled "Frank" in India!)...he was very patient and really helpful. He got me to reset the router and redo my settings and everything was fine for a couple of days.

The problem was back within a day so I repeated what D-Link told me to do. It worked fine again for another couple of days. Yesterday I had a repeat of the connection failure.

This is getting really frustrating and surely can't be normal. I've not had wireless before so I don't know what to expect in terms of reliability.

Hello, I?m seeing a bizarre effect with the wifi on my ProBook 450 G3 running on Win 10. The notebook intermittently loses the wifi connection and is then not able to reconnect anymore. When the connection gets lost and I try to reconnect I?m getting the message ?some settings have changed since the last connection. Please enter your wifi passcode?. When I enter the passcode it then returns a message ?Connection not possible?. I then have to hook up the notebook via ethernet cable to the router and while it is connected via cable I can re-establish the wifi connection (obviously without re-entering the passcode as it has never changed?).Sometimes the connection gets lost every 15-30 min and sometimes it is running stable for hours. The wifi driver is up to date. Other devices connected to that router do not show this effect. I wasn?t able to test the ProBook on a different wifi network so far. Any thoughts? I have another issue with that ProBook. I do not think this is related to this problem, however, you never know?:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-Notebooks/Intermittent-100-disk-active-time-with-0kB-s-read-wr... Thanks,Martin

A:Intermittent loss of wifi connection

you do not mention which version of drivers you are using, nor the BIOS. I would encourage you to install and run SDM (Softpaq Download Manager - www.hp.com/go/sdm) to see what it says about drivers available to be updated and/or BIOS. SDM can then install them for you. BIOS must be installed by itself. It is always possible that a Wifi driver might have issues with new hardware but initial troubleshooting needs to be done When running SDM, only install drivers and/or BIOS. Any other software should be updated ONLY if you are using any of it

I have a problem where I lose connection to the internet for usually only about 10-30 seconds and then it reconnects. This happens about every 5 minutes and sometimes even more frequently. Roadrunner has been out twice and replaced all the cables and the modem which did not work. I have the problem when going through both the router and a direct connect from the modem. The lights on the modem stay on throughout the losses. I am running under Windows 7 Home Premium on an ASUS i7 920 with a Realtek PCIe GBE network adapter. This is driving me crazy so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you by chance running "homegroup" for networking. It has on some systems a connectivity issue. It uses IPv6 which on some hardware (especially older hware) does have connectivity and latency problems You can test that by making a new new nettork connection using "workgroup" instead. If it works you then can disable IPv6 and kill homegroup.

I have been signed up to TalkTalk broadband for several years. I use a Linksys WAG325N gateway (modem plus router) which I bought five or six years ago. The three computers in the house (all Windows 7) are connected via Devolo DLAN AV 200 Homeplugs. Wireless is disabled at the router. Other than doing that I don't think I've touched the software in the router since I moved to TalkTalk (from Tiscali).

All was well until a few months ago when the internet connection started to cut out intermittently, and could only be restored by switching the router off and on. It happens perhaps three times a day. It is independent of whichever computers happen to be switched on at the time. I've spoken to neighbours on the same exchange who are also with TalkTalk and they don't have this problem.

It happened again last night but one user noticed something interesting. He was playing an interactive game involving talking to other players and though the connection was lost with respect to the game (other computers in the house simultaneously lost connection, as always), he could still talk to the other participants via his headset.

Can anyone diagnose this or suggest any tests I could do? Is it time to retire this elderly router?

The external and internal phone wiring is pretty old looking and may be around the age of the house (built 1952).

A:Intermittent loss of broadband connection

Hello,

You might want to do firmware update on your Linksys device. See if your issue resolved after the update, if not backup your router setting and do a hard reset then reconfigure your router.

5 to 6 yr old router might be an issue, with the newer routers you'll get the latest technology and better security.

I did a series of tracerts to my ISP and noticed frequent timeouts on hops after the ISPs own servers. Sometimes the tracert would complete after just a single unresolved hop, and other times, it would continue to timeout at the 30 hop max. This was happening even when my connection was working.

I'm not sure what that may mean, but I don't trust my ISPs support to understand it. They've been less than helpful so far.

I notice no latency or slow service, just a complete interruption for periods between 5 seconds and a few minutes. I only detect a problem when my game becomes unresponsive. At this point,... Read more

A:Tracking down cause for intermittent connection loss

Do you notice any particular periods of the day where the issue occurs more often? This sure sounds like ISP issues or perhaps interior wiring and/or filter installation issues.

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

So here's an interesting one.

We have five web-enabled devices on our home network. We are running with a D-Link wireless DIR-651 with the 1.10 firmware update (so it claims anyway). The wireless is set up and playing nicely for a while. At random points, however, various devices will lose their connection.

The connected devices are:

Vista Home Edition PC A - Ethernet
Vista Home Edition PC B - Ethernet
MacBook Pro - Wireless
PlayStation 3 - Ethernet
iPhone 4 - Wireless

Vista Home Edition A has never lost internet connection. It is consistently online, which allows me to know that it's not the ISP failing.

However, various of the other devices (even the hardlined ones) keep having intermittent issues. I cannot even access the router through it's local IP address through these devices when they're having hiccups. There is no discernable relation between the devices and they do not usually turn off at the same time (i.e. I'm posting this on the MacBook Pro because I got super angry with Vista PC B when it lost its connection...again...)

At first I thought it might be the router (seems obvious). Most people are saying that the router has problems on NewEgg, but firmware update 1.10 helps. The router seems to feel it's already running that firmware. Upon swapping to a non-wireless router, Vista PC B STILL is not getting an internet connection. Which leads me to believe it's the PC. But why are the other devices having similar problems?

Hey, I hope I am posting this in the right place.

For the past few months, I have been suffering from the most irritating of any computer issues I've experienced. For some reason, every couple of minutes, I will drop access to wireless and wired internet. This began in April, about a week after a fresh install on a PC (it is a very powerful computer, as well). I have multiple other computers/devices connected to the same router by both wifi and ethernet, but only this PC has any issues.

The first time this occurred, in April, it happened for a week straight. I "cured" it after about 48 hours of troubleshooting by removing a D-Link driver, which was my Wifi driver. I operated on LAN alone from that point (Realtek GBE Family PCIe Controller x2). I assumed the D-Link and Realtek drivers were conflicting with eachother, for whatever reason. It has been flawless, up to about one month ago.

In May, the same issue began again out of the blue (as soon as I turned my computer on after a weekend away). I lost access to the internet every few moments (at this point, it was wired only). I solved it after a few hours by doing a system restore to about ~3 days prior, when Windows did an update. I assumed a Windows updated restarted the issue with the Wifi for some reason and, once solved, let it be. That is, until it began again.

As of yesterday, I have been dropping internet every 10-40 minutes, with the longest activity of internet after restarting, shortest after the ... Read more

Hi,

I have a problem where my internet connection will drop at least once a day. I have Windows 7 Business x64. It will first simply stop working, as in it looks like it's connected, it still has a public IP but I can't ping out and no browsers work, nor any games etc (you get the picture). If I try release/renew it'll either hang or give me a 169-address. To fix it I have to reboot my computer and it starts working again.

I have an Asus P5KC motherboard using the Win7 Windows Update drivers, and it's been like this pretty much since the start. I've turned off all power saving modes everywhere I could find and any sort of hibernation settings, and still it'll cut off almost always once a day. (I have a VNC server so I can log on from work, so I can tell when it 'crashes'.)

What's funny is that it often doesn't happen when I'm on the computer, it's mainly when I've been gone for a bit. That's not to say it hasn't happened when I've been at it, it's just more uncommon.

It's setup to a switch which in turn is connected to my modem. What's telling me that it isn't neither the modem nor the switch that has the problem is the fact that I have a mediastation which doubles as a webserver also connected to the router and it has never once cut out. I've tried switching the ports on the switch (ha-ha) to no avail.

I've been thinking about installing the Vista x64 drivers from Asus but I'm leery of trying because I don't know how similar the two systems are.

So far, Comcast has put in new cable lines/splitters in my house, new termination at the pole and a new modem. Problem still persists.

What I have done on my end before Comcast got involved:

Okay, I recently reclaimed an old computer to use as the kids' homework computer. Installed XP Pro from scratch, got all of the drivers and all system updates (using a WAN modem I had). Hooked it up with an ethernet cable to my switch, which in turn goes thru an Airport modem acting as the DNS server, and thence to the cable modem.

All computers on the network run very well. Except this one.

I can sometimes get Google, but almost no other site. The connection is being assigned a valid IP address. When I connect a laptop to the same cable, it works fine.

So, I've eliminated (I think) switch, router, and cable as the roots of the problem.

I could have the TCP/IP misconfigured somehow, but then I think I wouldn't get this:

when I ping another computer on the network, or the DNS server, or www.google.com, I get about the same result: sometimes all four tests come thru, but normally 1, 2, or 3 fail. Sometimes all four fail.

I suspect this means that I have some hardware issue, rather than a configuration issue. I've opened the box and the cables appear seated. I used compressed air to clean the dust from the ethernet port.

So I'm kind of out of ideas and found this site...hoping someone can tell me something new!!!!

Thanks,

Mike

I have been experiencing intermittent disconnects from the internet which as far as I can tell started when I installed an online game (Guild Wars 2). I have done quite a few things to try and get this resolved myself but its proving to be quite a hardy problem so I thought id post it here. First off a few details:

Router Status: Internet light remains solid green and I am able to access my router while disconnected.

The internet gets disconnected for all computers connected to the network however the router internet light remains green. The problem occurs more in peak internet usage times. Before this issue I have previously never had this problem and no other hardware/software changes were made. I also get disconnected when no programs are being run on my machine and when the wireless has been disabled.

I am currently plugged into the test phone socket, have swapped out the micro filter 4 times, replaced the modem with a brand new one, allocated static IP's to all devices in the network, turned off IPV6, changed settings on my network card and then back again and scanned my computer for viruses and malware using AVG, Windows Defender and Advanced System Care.

I have really annoying problem with my wireless router and I canít find a solution for it. I am using this wireless router for connection to internet:

The problem is that in most of the time the router works without a problem then suddenly without doing anything from my side the internet connection starts intermitting and then I canít event connect to the router. This is a screenshot of pinging the router when the problem occurs.

Can anyone help me resolve this problem?

Thanks!

Is this the only PC that disconnects - do other devices connected work OK - if so how are they connected to the router - wireless or wired

would you post the xirrus screen shot when the internet is working OK, and the xirrus screen shot when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

Does anyone know of any reasons why a wireless connection would be intermittent?

My mother's wireless is cutting out randomly for extended periods - hours, not just seconds - for no obvious reason. Let me tell you about her setup. She's in a small house and has a laptop that she connects wirelessly. My brother has his computer setup in the basement. He has a desktop and a cell phone; the desktop connects via ethernet, the phone connects wirelessly. The internet arrives via a fiber optic cable. My brother has had no connection issues via ethernet. The last time my mother lost her wireless connection, she went downstairs and my brother assured her that he was online with his desktop and could access websites at that moment.

All this suggests that the connection from the ISP is fine but that wireless within the house is intermittent. Why would that be? I've checked the router settings - they have a modem/router combo - and everything seemed fine there. But, just as I finished checking everything - I didn't change anything - we lost the wireless again so I'm unable to troubleshoot further until it comes back.

Could the wireless section of the router be failing, in which case we could try to get another modem from the ISP?

Could the wireless connectivity within her laptop be failing? Are there any diagnostics I could run to figure that out? It's a very new laptop, she's just had it since Mother's Day this year so I'm reluctant to believe it is failing already but I can... Read more

Hi all

I would be grateful if someone could help me or point me in the right direction of a problem I?m having with intermittent wireless connection issues on my laptop. I?ve had a look through the forum for a similar issue as the one I?m having but I can?t find any answers. I have limited knowledge of wireless networks so I hope I can explain the problem well enough. Here goes...

I recently bought an Acer Aspire 5732Z laptop (Win7 Home Prem x64) which has a Broadcom 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter. Everything seemed to be working fine for the first month - I was able to connect to my Sky Broadband Router (using WPA security) without any problems.

I am now having problems with wirelessly connecting to the router with the usual connection settings. Most of the time it shows a list of all network connections available but when I try to connect to the usual network it shows a message saying it was unable to connect. Occasionally the wireless card connects after what seems to be a random period of time, which to me suggests that it might be to do with the signal but the router is not even a metre away from me and it shows full signal strength in Win 7,
I?m fairly certain that there is no problem with the router because I can connect wirelessly without any problems with my PS3. I can also connect to the router directly with an Ethernet cable to my laptop without any problems at all.

I?ve tried doing the following to resolve the issue:

Hi Nonexist, welcome to the forums


You may want to try Wireless Network - Remove then re-connecting to the router. This forces Windows to treat it like a brand new connection and sets all the defaults just like when you first connected and had it running fine.

At times i will have great connection, and then it will just seem to go away, and it could be a while before i find the network again. I tryied changing the channel on my network configuration but it didnt seem to help...and thats all the tech support guys from my internet company could tell me. I did have internet where i used to live 2 weeks ago before i moved here...so i k now its not my pc. The 360 also works fine there. And the 360 will recognize the network and the signal is more than half, it just wont connect to it at all. The computer only a few feet away will connect but like it said it will be intermittent.

Connection loss, perhaps. I don't really know what to make of it.

I'm on a wireless network when I come home from college, so I've only been using it for about 3 weeks now. My trouble is this:

I had a D-link wireless card (PCI, generic PC setup) from which the antenna had broken off, so I got a pretty poor signal, but it worked fine. For christmas I asked for a new card, I ended up with a Linksys WMP54G, a pretty straightforward wireless-g card. I installed the new card, decided to use the windows networking setup as opposed to the linksys wireless setup because i'm used to it, rebooted, and it worked fine.

Now i have an "excellent" signal, but I'll have times where the connection will just cut out for a few seconds every couple minutes.

I haven't really experienced this before and it seems somewhat odd for hardware to be this inconsistant.

Thanks for any help in advance.

A:Loss of wireless connection

There is a possibility that when the screen was repaired, the tech didn't reconnect the antenna connection lead to the antenna. When removing the screen, this connector must be unplugged.

Does your laptop connect wirelessly when it is just a few feet from your router/access point? If it is the antenna issue I suspect, it will lose signal as soon as you move it further from the router.

If you feel brave enough you can remove the bezel around the screen & see if the antenna is connected. It will be a very small two-wire plug.

Hi all! I seem to have an intermittent wireless connection. The wireless only works if I turn the computer on, let it sit for a while, then restart it. I don't know if it's a driver issue, because I've tried reinstalling - it seemed to help, because the connection went from none at all to intermittent. I also know it's not a router or ISP issue - we had some issues with the internet (unrelated - weeks before this happened), and when the service dude came in, he saw what we had at our house wasn't what the company records say, so he swapped out the router/modem setup and gave us a dedicated internet line (the router doesn't go through the modem - the box he gave us uses an extra co-ax going in). We also have 2 other computers and 3 tablets that can connect perfectly, including after the router swap-out.

The two usual causes ...

1. Wireless interference; you can check for it or just try different channels (e.g., 1, 6 and 11 in North America.

2. Multiple wireless utilities running; possibilities include Windows XP's WZC, the one provided by the adapter manufacturer and one provided by the PC manufacturer.

The past few days my HP has been going offline on occasion. We have had problems in the past with internet outage so I assumed that was all it was. Simply wait an hour or more and it comes back on.

This last week it started losing connection maybe once a day. The last 3 days it is getting to be constant now. I can only be online for a few minutes then it drops. I've tried both my wireless and ethernet cable (at one point ethernet would not even show up). Both are doing the same. Other devices in the house are connected but mine won't, so I know it's within my computer. The icon shows I have internet yet I keep freezing for a moment the get the "page can not be displayed" on any/every site until I refresh it several times.

After searching the web for solutions, I went to my devices and tried to update the drivers but all say they are updated.

I am in NO WAY computer savvy so I am completely lost and frustrated.

Hi there

i'm a little confused, any advice would be much appreciated.

i live in a fairly large house, and have recently set up a wireless network. i use a D link DIR 635 router and a Intel WiFi Link 5100 on a Dell laptop which is only a few months old (the router and laptop were bought at the same time direct from dell). the wireless conection in general can be pretty temperemental, the laptop doesn't seem to lose the connection altogether, it just goes to 'limited connectivity' and i'm unable to use the internet. the problem becomes worse when i'm further away from the router. i understand that the connection will be worse the further away i am, but the signal strength indicator is still showing good / very good / excellent but the internet connection barely works. i really don't understand. i'm pretty sure it's not the internet connection, as on the pc that's wired it's fine. i thought that if the signal is showing as good, then there shouldn't be any problem connecting to the internet as the laptop and router are talking to each other - this doesn't seem to be the case. i specifically bought this router and upgraded the wireless card to use 802.11n as i read that this would work further away. as you can see i'm no expert!

any advice would be great, i'm not sure if i've provided enough info to understand the problem.

A:Intermittent Wireless Internet Connection

Some things you can try here in order of their possibility of solving the issue.
For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
For wireless connections, try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.
Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

I have 2 desktop computers with identical Belkin Wireless G Desktop Cards.
Both computers have the latest Belkin drivers and the router is a Belkin as well.
One computer never looses its wireless connection, the other fails numerous times an hour. When the router is rebooted and the computer is restarted, the connection persists for a while, but once it fails the first time it fails intermittently and frequently. It always reconnects on its own, usually quickly, but sometimes it takes a few minutes.
What I've done so far:
1. Reset the router to factory default and reconfigured, then uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless card and driver.
2. Changed the channel from auto (ch 1) to ch 6.
3. Pulled out my hair, banged my head on the desk etc.
Please advise on further steps that might proceed my next one which is to just go buy another card. I hate to give up, just ask my kids.
 

A:intermittent failure of wireless connection

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from Belkin's web site.

If the problem computer is running Windows XP make sure you don't have multiple wireless utilities (e.g., Belkin's and XP's WZC) running.

Make sure you have the latest router firmware. If you upgrade then reset to factory default settings and reconfigure.

Every few minutes the connection to the Wireless Router is lost and I have to click on the network icon in the system tray and then click the 'connect' button--then internet access is restored. The signal is showing as very strong on channel 6. What could be causing this? Is this a problem with XP networking, USB Ports, or the 2.4 GHZ frequency(i.e. microwave oven use, cordless phones) of the network? This behavior occurs using WEP and no WEP. I have not tried changing the channel or ssid yet.

Network Specs:

2.56 GHZ Pentium 4
512 MB RAM
Windows XP Professional
Linksys wireless B Router model BEFW11S4 2.4GHZ 11 Mbs
Linksys wireless USB adapter model wusb11 ver2.6
Motorola Surfboard 4200 Cable Modem
Optimum Online Broadband

This is the only wireless adapter in the network---
Would it be worth trading this equipment in for equipment that runs at 5 GHZ--the Linksys parts were bought two weeks ago and can still be returned.

I have seen this same sort of intermittent connection loss behavior with a D-Link wireless USB card on a Windows XP Home system. A balloon near system tray would pop up every few minutes stating that the connection was lost . Thank you to anyone that can help me figure out the cause of these wireless problems.

I had two that were, mine and a neighbours, both now gone.

I've tried re-setting the router .... uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, removing connections and making new ones .... I thought maybe the card was faulty so tried to connect using another adaptor, but with the same result.... no wireless network in range... am at a loss as what to do next.

I just installed a 2nd video card - PCI (AGP already in use). I installed it because I needed a 3rd monitor.
Card works fine. Problem is - when I installed the new card, all of the sudden, I was unable to connect to my wireless network (linksys based). The router is fine - all my other systems are connecting to it just fine - but the upgraded system cannot.
So, I uninstalled the video, network, rebooted and reinstalled the network. Everything started working again.
So I reinstalled the video. It seemed to be working... I plugged in the monitor.. seemed to be working then I lose connection. Then connection is re-established. I thought maybe it was the monitor (CRT vs the others being LCD), so I turned it off. Nope, still fluctuating.
For now, I'm removing the video card. Can anyone tell me why adding a new video card would mess up my wireless connection? The card itself seems fine - it's just having a difficult time connecting to the router...

Hey there helpers, I've been having some issues with my wireless internet. We have Verizon DSL, which we've connected to a router for wireless internet, but for some reason my new desktop, an Acer Aspire T180, frequently loses connection with the internet. I installed a Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter, and the drivers are all up to date and everything, but what happens is: I'll have 5-20 minutes of good connection, download speeds running around 130kb/s (like the hardwired computer downstairs), but then suddenly all my download speeds will drop to 0-2kb/s, and all my internet related programs will get kicked off, such as AIM or firefox (saying it could not find the page, as if I wasn't online).

The strange thing is that under the Network and Sharing Center in the Vista Control Panel, most of the time it doesn't say it's lost connection. Only rarely does it display that it's lost connection, and when it does it says the connection has been lost between the router and the internet, not my computer and router. Although once or twice my computer has lost signal with the router, saying none are in range, which makes no sense since I always have 5 to 4 bars on the signal strength.

We have our modem and router set-up so that the modem is connected to the hardwired computer via USB, and the modem connects to the router via Ethernet. It's a D-link router. I've had this problem with my old laptop (RIP) last year, frequent disconnections. So... Read more

Have you tried changing router channels? Have you looked for sources of wireless interference, like wireless phones, other WiFi networks?

Hi,

I regularly experience loss of my wireless internet connection through Vista. Sometimes it will connect and after one hour of idle status, the connection is lost. Internet is OK because when the router is bypassed connection is stable. Router has been changed but with no improvement. Is there any particular option that has to be (de)activated within Vista to allow for router connection continuously?
Thanks in advance,

I have a big problem after I uninstall Ad-Aware Antivirus. Once it is gone and I also uninstall Ad-Aware Security Add-on my wireless connection also deletes or plain disappears. I am the second PC in the house with the USB connector by Netgear installed. I try to reconnect manually and using the Netgear install disk and nothing happens to reestablish an Internet connection and I am baffled. So I have to go back and use Restore and everything is well again with Ad-Aware back slowing down my PC.
I now have full AVG 30 day trial and plan to buy it for a year in the next few days. Yet I want to delay doing this until after the Ad-Aware is successfully deleted. And by the way I have MalwareBytes installed here as well. So is there any easy solution to this problem? And have I been going about it the hard way?

I have an Ativa Wireless G Router. It seems to be dropping the connection ever 15 min or so. I have to reboot it by unplugging and replugging it to get it to re-connect. The last time this happened, Ativa suggested updating the software, but I think I'm up-to-date (at least I haven't found updates). Any thoughts on how to address this? (PS: Ran virus scans just in case, and all's clear)
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
 

A:Repeated wireless router connection loss

I've got a (brand new) HP Pavilion DV6449 with Vista Home Premium. When I first got it, I could "see" my wireless connection but couldn't connect to it consistently. Other times, I couldn't even see it. The router and service is provided by RioadRunner through Time Warner Cable.

After a two-hour hunt-and-peck session with Time Warner technician in my home, I could get on the net. (Neither one of us was sure how, though.) After they left, I realized that I could not receive email consistently. And now, I cannot see my wireless network at all. I'm back to where I started from.

I have attempted to set up the network manually.
I have installed and uninstalled Norton.
I have removed all of the protection I can find.
I am sure that the network info (WEP, network key, password, etc.) that I am entering are correct.
HP already had me install and uninstall the network adapter.
I am sure I have email because I receive it on my old XP puter. (That's what I'm using now.)
I am sure my router works and that the network is up - I'm using it now on the old machine.

Can anyone explain this on again off again behavior and help me solve the problem? I'm in a small town and my local tech resources (and knowledge base) are very limited when it comes to Vista.

Thanks!

If this happens when running on battery, but not when connected to power, it may be a known issue. Here's a page with a couple of possible solutions: http://www.pctipsbox.com/connectivity-and-performance-problem-in-mobile-pc-to-wireless-access-point/
