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.)

A: How to stablish connection with wireless device

This is not really a networking question. So you may want to move this to the appropriate forum.

But you say it is Bluetooth. Please post the make and model of your computer and the make and model of the keyboard.

Although there are Bluetooth keyboard most wireless keyboard use a USB receiver and not Bluetooth. So we need to know what make and model to make sure it is Bluetooth.

Hi,
I've been having problems with my 2 laptops dropping the connection to our wireless for the past couple of years.
At first we thought the our wi-fi router was dying, so we bought another one, set it up the same way, and then experienced the same problem which is the connection will drop, we'll have to reboot the wireless router and then we can connect....and we keep having to do this with the 2 laptops we have. Our 1 PC that is connected via ethernet to the same wireless router has never had any problems. SO I am not on my 3rd wireless router now, this time a D-link WBR-2310 and am just sick and tired of having to keep rebooting the router every time the connection drops.

Both of our laptops on Windows XP, SPK 2 and both configured to use the Intel-Pro-Set wireless configuration utility as we thought maybe the windows management option was the problem.

The Wireless router is set to Broadcast our SSID and is using the "Enable the WPA wireless security" option with TKIP. We have "Enable extended Range mode" selected. DHCP Server is turned on.
So what can I do??? Obviously it can't be the router as this our 3rd one.
Please help.

Addition stuff I use (wasn't sure where to put it in):

- EMET 5.5 with recommended settings

- VeraCrypt for encrypted containers (I'm not using system encryption)

- GlassWire Firewall combined with Windows Firewall

GlassWire is basically to keep an eye on the traffic which goes out to the web
- Microsoft Network Monitor and Wireshark

To keep an eye on the traffic aswell and to check if some shady file connects to some shady sites
- On a fresh installed Win10 I use Spybot anti-beacon combined with "Win10Privacy" and a custom made batch file to disable various stuff (such as windows built-in logging, disable scheduled tasks, disable Windows Error reporting, Windows services and various Windows optimizations such as faster shutdown, superfetch only for boot files and so on.)

- I also use VMware frequently with some Windows and Linux VM's. I sometimes like to check malware, I do it as an hobby and I'm far away from a professional, I sometimes reverse cheap "steam wallet" generators or some cheap "Game hacks" for games like DayZ, CSGO and other popular games.

- Sandboxie for using downloaded PDF's even when they are from a "trusted" source (Friend, work, etc.) I prefer to open them in Sandboxie, trust no one.

- DNS settings from OpenDNS put into IPv4

- IPv6 is disabled

Hi Tech support,

I've recently installed Windows Vista x64 on my machine and used my motherboards built-in wireless connection to connect to my flat's wireless router. Everything worked fine until I noticed that whenever I remove a USB device from my front panel (USB Stick, MP3 Player) the wireless suddenly loses it's connection with the router, and the only thing I've found to fix things is a restart of my PC.
I also have a Laptop running a 32-bit version of Vista, and after trying it there it seems to have exactly the same problem.
Any ideas what's causing this, or better still how to fix it?

I am having the same problem for all my 5 computers.
They all have the same specs except for hard drive / disc drives and graphics card.

My temporary fix:
GUI:
Start Orb > Control Panel > View network status and tasks > Manage network connections > Select "Wireless Network Connection" > Disable this network device > Enable this network device

Command Line:

Code:
netsh interface set interface "Wireless Network Connection" DISABLE
netsh interface set interface "Wireless Network Connection" ENABLE
It's still not the solution to the problem, but it works when I need it. It does get annoying when I have to use USB devices and the Internet at the same time, though. This is why I want a solution to this problem.

My XBox360 is wired by ethernet into my home network (via Devolo homeplug behind TV).

My music server (Win7 netbook) is not wired, but on the wireless network.

Can I get the XBox to "see" the media folders on the netbook (to play music etc.) using this setup or do I have to have both clients on the same wireless network ?

The Xbox automatically disconnects from the wireless network when ethernet is used.

Hello there. I have an HP dv9700 notebook, which about an year ago began having serious screen problems. It went black and nothing made it come back, even though Windows still booted (sounds came up and everything).

After almost an year repairing, and 3 Intel motherboards later, the technician found out the problem was on the dedicated graphics card memory, and put an AMD motherboard on my notebook which didn't have dedicated graphics memory anymore.

So now my notebook is recognized by HP automatic product detection as a dv9010us one. Plus, my graphics card is now shown as a GeForce Go 6150 (I bought it as a GeForce 6800 GS).

Since then the PC has been working flawlessly, except for now. Last night I was using the notebook, turned it off and went to sleep. Now I turned it on once again it simply can't detect the wireless device. It's like it doesn't exists!

I never changed the position of the notebook or anything to say the card moved or something internally. I check the Device Manager and there's no sign of the 802.11 adapter. It only shows the local ethernet adapter (wired connection working flawlessly as I'm writing right now from it) and bluetooth adapter. And yes, the light on the wireless switch on my notebook is blue (which means turned on). I tried putting it to off (orange) and then on again (blue), but it doesn't works. All that happens is that windows "disconnected" sound (like when you remove an USB device) when I turn it off.

A:Cant see my wireless device under Device Mangaer

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

According to your specs you are using Windows Vista 32-bit and not Windows 7.

The details you have posted are for your wired ethernet adapter, not your wireless adapter.

Device Manager indicates you don't have a driver for your wireless network - hence the yellow question mark.

You need to download the correct driver from Dell Support, save it, and then install it.

Using a T41 Thinkpad w/ Windows XP with a built-in Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter. I recently had a Blue Screen of Death issue that was resolved by googling the problem's stop code that thrus some research told me to download a new driver for the wireless device. No more BSOD, however now a new problem. The wireless is cutting out every 10-20 minutes for 5 seconds then automatically reconnects. Very annoying and hopefully solvable. The network has always been solid, so it must be the new software causing the issue, not the network. I tried reinstalling the new driver, problem persists.

Downloaded the installed driver from here:

hey,

Today i have a new problem with my adsl. The wireless was working at full 'advertised' speed last night, then today i noticed the wireless connection symbol in the task bar had changed from 54mbs to only 2 mbs, and a speedtest showed that it was a tenth of the speed it used to be.

Because i just installed my modem yesterday, i thought maybe this was just the isp limiting my connection until i register the modem or something. However, when i connect an ethernet cable between the modem and my computer, the connection works at full advertised speed. Does this rule out the possibility that my isp is limiting my signal, and suggest that the problem is with my wireless settings? Thanks for any help. The modem is a speedtouch 780.

Hi folks, would greatly appreciate any help and advice on the following problem that's been happening over the last few months...

I have a Dell Dimension 9200 running Windows XP and use a Buffalo WBMR-G54 Wireless Router to connect to the internet. I also connect wirelessly with a Dell Latitude laptop and an iPhone.

What's been happening on the desktop computer is a loss of connection for 30 seconds at a time or so with the message 'Local Area Connection (a network cable is unplugged)'.

Yet while my desktop is disconnected my other devices are using the wireless connection without a break so it doesn't look like there's anything wrong with my broadband provider.

The Network Connection properties are:
Intel(R) 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection
PCI bus 0, device 25, function 0
Link speed: 10Mbps/Full Duplex
Driver Version: 9.4.21.0

It seems to be happening much more frequently in the evenings than during the day, especially when using Skype.

Therefore, I have no wait getting to the ip address and/or setting up a secure network.

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

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

Hi,

Hoping someone can help.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Am I doing something wrong?

Hi, I currently connect to the internet through a wired ethernet port in the wall which connects to my university's network.

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006PYGWG6

I don't know much about it but I was concerned because the Router Mode says 'cable connection only' and I'm not sure the connection is cable (is it ADSL?). Will I need anything else like a modem?

Any advice?

My dad just bought a new wireless router and out of our 3 computers, mine is having a problem. My computer is a Dell Vostro 1500 with a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card. I am able to connect to the connection, but not stay online. I am not sure in what intervals I am being disconnected, but it is super frustrating haha. It seems my connection status is stuck on Authenticating. I hope someone can help me, I am quite unfamiliar with troubleshooting networking outside of the simplest tasks.

I have recently sorted out the wireless connection of a child's laptop to a wireless printer. It works perfectly. Howver, the parent's, wired, desktop computer does not now print. No changes were made to the desktop , which was working fine before this.. I am not at the location now but are there any ideas why this should suddenly occur. Both computers are running XP.
 

A:Wireless printer not printing from wired computer after connection by wireless lapto

Wireless printers can be connected both by USB and wireless simultaneously. However, I have come across many that say they should but don't do so easily. Sometimes they have to be setup wireless first then USB and others vice versa..
In my opinion, it is probably the best option to add the printer to the desktop through the network. Then there should be no problems with setup. Hope that helps..

(Sorry, I just edited this because I realized the title said Wireless Router, it's actually a gateway. Can't fix it.)

I have a Netgear CGD24G Wireless Gateway and a Gateway MA8 laptop with after-market Windows 7 (Vista got a virus, went ahead and upgraded.)

Now, when I download 100 MB files on my Xbox 360 (Which is wired to the modem) it will be downloaded in a couple minutes, or less. The other computers in my house (There are plenty, and even more that come and go.) get a blazing internet connection, and most of them are wireless. Now this computer, which had an extremely quick connection as well all of a sudden dropped off, while the rest of the computers remain fast.

I've gone to Speedtest.net before and after this occurred and my speed before was around 12 mb/s, and one time around 4 AM was even upward of 25 mb/s, all of these tests were performed multiple times on different server locations.

I JUST did the speedtest, and it came back with .4 mb/s, and the UL speed was 2.0. I honestly can't remember what I averaged with it prior to the problem, but it was definitely higher as well.

This started happening a little less than a week ago, and I've downloaded/changed nothing major with the computer, and have mainly used it for light browsing, and an occasional download.

Also, this is mainly just a hobby fix. I have a long enough cable to wire the computer straight to the gateway, so I really don't want to buy new hardware or anything of t... Read more

I have a new dual band wireless-AC router (Linksys EA6300) and just installed an Intel AC 7260 wireless card in my laptop. The wireless network I am connected to indicates that it is a 802.11n connection, but in the Wireless Network Connection Status it only shows a connection speed of 54mb/s. The router is capable of 300mb/s in the 2.4ghz band and 867mb/s in the 5ghz band. Using inSSIDer to examine the networks, it shows that when I'm connected to the 5ghz network it has a max rate of 450mb/s.

I have tried everything I can think of and have searched and searched to no avail. If my router is an AC router, and my wireless card is an AC card, why is my connection speed limited to 54mb/s?

I also have another computer with a wireless-N card and the connection speed is also limited to 54mb/s on that computer too.

I've attached a screenshot showing the connection speed.

A:Wireless Connection Speed limited to 54mb/s on Wireless-N equipment

Have you tried checking the various setting in the network folder? Also, your router has a configuration web page doesnt it? a page you would go to; in order to change the router settings? If so, log into that page and check the router settings. Also; even though the router is new I believe you mentioned; there might be a firmware upgrade for the router that you should be able to easily check for. Im not familiar with the type of router you have. but you should be able to get into the settings fairly easily.

I have a Presario M2000 with Windows XP. I have been using a Linksys WRT54G wireless router for three years with no problems. Recently a relative, unable to find the Encryption Key, "reset" the router. It still works fine but it is now an unsecured connection.

I tried to secure the connection by running the Linksys installation CD four times. I called Linksys and was informed that my service contract, which I did not know I had, had expired. If I paid them $39.99 they would walk me through a new installation that I could make secure.

I tried to check out their website, linsysbycisco.com, but it seems not to exist!

I had no idea that I would not be able to change the security settings of the router after a certain amount of time! Is there anything I can do, short of paying them $39.99, to make the wireless router connection secure?

(I am a new member and posted this question twice as I titiled my first inquiry with my user name...sorry!!!! ....wont do it again!)
 

A:Solved: Reset wireless router now can't secure the wireless connection!

That is a pretty common Linksys router and you should just be able to download the router manual from Linksys's website and go into the Web Interface of the router to setup the Wireless encryption again.

I bought a toshiba satellite m45-s2692 on April 2, 2006.
It has an intel pro wireless 2200bg adapter - driver v 9.0.1.9
I have it connected a netgear wgr614v5 router.
it has a problem maintaining a constant speed. I watched the network monitor on the notebook and it always shows a "connection excellent" however, the speed is not constant - it will vary from 1mbsp to 54 mbsp - but seldom does it maintain the 54 mbsp.

on 4/20/2006, I sent the machine to toshiba - they replaced the network adapter - or so they said, and wiped the hard drive and reinstalled the original software.
I rec'd the machine back and find that the problem has not changed - it still will not maintain a steady speed so viewing files on other pcs on the lan takes forever and page loads on the net can also occupy too much time.

I have an older toshiba satellite with a netgear wireless wg511t adapter.
I have watched the monitor on that one and it will show connection excellent and maintains a steady speed of 54 mbsp. these two machines can be sitting side by side or in separate rooms and still the old one will maintain it's connection and speed but the new will not maintain the speed.

I called toshiba up again, and they want to say it's my router. I explained to them that another toshiba on the same network does not faulter -- so how can it be the router?

I just updated my dlink wbr 2310 routers firmware to 1.03 from 1.02 because previously i was getting randomly disconnected. Its only been a couple days, but i havnt yet noticed that ive been randomly disconnected anymore, but now my connection speed fluctuates, where with the old firmware, i never once saw it change. what could be causing this change? as its screwing up my online gaming, causing me to lag when it drops way down. I never had a problem with the speed changing before, and cant find any setting that looks like it could be linked to such an event, though im no networking expert, so i may be missing something. what does anyone think of this problem? thanks.
 

A:Wireless speed under wireless network connection status fluctuating????

google for a program called Network Stumbler. When it runs, you can see other
wifi systems near by and the real asset is the disclosure of all the channels in use.

pick a channel that is not used

monitor what activities you are performing when the connection rate changes;
it's likely that it only occurs when you're gaming. In that case, the stress of the
networked game is the actual cause of the rate change.

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.

I am trying to set up a new Thinkpad laptop to work on my HOME workgroup and on a new OFFICE workgroup. I have used the HOME workgroup for many years, with many computers, without a problem, but this is the first time I have needed to set up two networks, and a laptop that works on both (I got a new Thinkpad, and rented a new office at the same time - big mistake).

- I am trying to configure the laptop to belong to the OFFICE workgroup, but have access to computers/shared devices from the HOME workgroup when I am on the home network, and of course share the Internet connection on both networks.

- Both networks have a Wireless Router with firewall - the one at HOME is a Linksys - the one at the OFFICE is a Netgear.

- Because of the firewall in the router, I have turned off Windows Firewall (although interestingly, it seems to turn on by itself quite often on the Thinkpad - another issue i need to get to the bottom of).

- HOME network is cable/cable modem, OFFICE is a T-1.

- I am trying to use IBM's "Access Connections" tool to create two network profiles, so that I can easily switch from OFFICE to HOME. The HOME wifi is unsecured, while the office is WEP.

Both the wired (ethernet) and wireless connections work fine at the office, but at home, the wired connection cannot renew the IP address, and so IBM Access Connections automatically fires up the wireless radio, and is only able to connect that way.

Hello all, I have a rather odd problem I personally have never encountered, maybe some of you big brains can help me figure it out.

I connect to this router with 2 different machines. A laptop ( Acer 5552 ), and
a desktop computer ( self built ) whose mobo is an Asus M2N4 - SLI, and is running win xp pro sp3. It is connected via ethernet through it's onboard gigabit ethernet port, which uses Nforce drivers for it's
adapter.

Yes, 1.5 sucks, but it is fine for general use, I am the only person using it, and im in a rural area with no alternative.

My laptop connects and uses this wireless signal with no problems, I am even able to play games like World Of Warcraft and other non-broadband intensive games on it.

My desktop, which has the latest nforce ethernet drivers, connected via ethernet, is in most cases not usable at all. It connects and I get the standard 100mbps connection notification, yet, it usually cannot
even load a web page completely. I open its status dialog and see that packet flow is very slow. I have tried rolling back the driver, this does not help. I have deleted the driver altogether and rebooted the machine, this does not help. Other than this, my desktop runs the way it should, I built it, and would consider myself an advanced computer user, so, I do not believe it is my machine.

Hi everyone,

I work in an office where we have a main desktop computer which is connected to the internet via a Time Warner modem. The modem is connected by cable to a netgear wireless router, and up until today there have been no problems connecting to the internet from the laptops that use the wireless connection.

Today, for no reason, with no changes, upgrades, or anything different at all, I am now getting the message that my laptop sees the wireless network, but claims the network has no internet access (not true; I am able to connect to the internet from the desktop, which is where I'm typing from). So we have internet coming into the office and the desktop, but suddenly the router isn't broadcasting the wireless signal any more.

I ran windows network diagnostics several times and I've gotten different responses, one said "wireless connection doesn't have valid IP configuration", another said "the default gateway is not available", and "tourbleshooting couldn't identify the problem". !!

I'm reasonably computer savvy and I can follow instructions, so does anyone have any ideas where I should start? Many thanks!

Basically what I'm trying to do is setup a wireless on wireless ad-hoc network. My incoming connection is not wired, its wireless. So will I be able to do that some how? Or second, what If I had a external USB wireless adapter? Could I use that to recieve the internet signal then create a ad-hoc wireless network and use my internal card to support that network, while the external usb adapter supports the main line network?
