Wireless-N laptop not working on 802.11g WiFi

Q: Wireless-N laptop not working on 802.11g WiFi

I have a Dell laptop (Win7 Home Premium, 64Bit) and it seems like it always has difficulty connecting to WiFi routers that are using 802.11g. I have a Wireless-N card on my laptop and I would think it would be backwards compatible, right??
I'm the same person, with the same laptop, as this post: http://forums.techguy.org/networking/1079721-dns-lookup-failed.html
and all the symptoms that I was trying to solve in that post are relevant again.
At the time that post was made, I lived in an apartment and the modem/router from my cable company was wireless-G and my laptop seemed to experience intermittent DNS problems. I could never REALLY use the internet for very long, but sometimes some websites would seem to load, but usually pictures would have a problem. Other times the seemingly DNS issue would not let me load any websites at all. While I was on vacation I was able to connect perfectly to 2 different WiFi networks. I know for sure that one of them was Wireless-N (not sure about the other one).
Eventually I moved and my new modem/router from my new cable company was Wireless-N. My computer has connected to that network perfectly for months. Now, on vacation again, I tried to connect to a "G" network again and all the old problems came back EXACTLY as they were before.
Is it possible that my Wireless-N card has that much trouble connecting to Wireless-G networks? If so, is there any fix??
I've attached 2 screenshots. One is the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector showing my connection to the "G" network, the other is a shot of what Chrome looked like when it would not load the webpage.

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: Wireless-N laptop not working on 802.11g WiFi

The signal is too weak for a reliable connection. Try closer to the router.

The variation in the signal strength indicates probable incorrect driver or defective adapter or router (or wireless access point). Try the latest wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site. If that does not work right try the driver directly from Intel's site.

If possible check Xirrus with another computer, or another adapter, to see if the router is having difficulty maintaining a constant signal strength (a variation of one or two dBm is OK).

ASUS Notebook G60Vx Series

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
A few days ago my internet suddenly stopped working. I plugged in the ethernet cord and everything worked fine. Checking the properties in the device manager showed the device was working properly, I also tried resetting it to make sure it was enabled but it did not work.

Upon troubleshooting, the "Windows Network Diagnostic" said the problems was that the Wireless adapter was not turned on. Using the switch on the front of the laptop as well as the function keys does nothing. Usually a graphic pops up showing if the WiFi is on or off, changinging transparent to show the WiFi is disabled. Now when I turn the switch on it always appears transparent, effectively going from off to off

So I know the computer reads both the function keys and the switch on the front but both methods never actually turns the adapter on. I just finished a system restore and nothing has changed

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
 

A:Wifi not working on ASUS laptop, LAN working fine

Maybe the switch or adapter is defective. Some other ideas ...

Do you have an ASUS utility to also turn the wireless on/off? (I have an HP utility on one of my laptops that will individually control the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if the physical switch is on.)

In Device Manager right click on the adapter - Properties - Advanced tab. Sometimes there is a Property in there that allows turning the adapter on/off.

If the card is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace the card several times to fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems.

So I have wireless internet in my house through an xfinity cable/internet modem. While I was trying to set up my new printer on the wireless network, my wireless stopped working. My computer is showing it has a full signal from my wireless network, however it unable to connect. Also, if I connect my computer via ethernet cable the internet works without a problem. Also, my 3 other roommates can no longer connect to the wireless and nothing was done with their computers. I've tried unplugging the modem and plugging it back in after 30 seconds as recommended, but nothing changed. Please help!

A:Wireless not working after trying to add HP Printer to wifi network

Try turning the wireless printer off and unplug its power cord. If your WIFI comes back it was the printer that is interfering with the router. You will then have to go though the setup again to get everything working. My guess is the printer is using the same IP address that the router wants to use.

Hello,

I seem to have a problem with my WiFi. Left-clicking the wireless icon in system tray doesn't work as in literally nothing happens. When I open the network and sharing center and click on "connect to a network" then also nothing happens. Right now it's only a minor problem, because my laptop auto-connects to networks it already knows but when I want to connect to a public WiFi in a cafe for example I can't look up any networks.

Also I'd like to point out that setting up a new connection to connect to a WiFi works but for that I need to already know the network name and security type. Windows can't find any problems either and I've reinstalled all network adapter drivers.

Hope anyone has any ideas and thanks in advance.

Hi, I don't know if this is the right place to post this, as I got the desktop today. When I turn it on, it does about three things, won't find the wifi, find it, but won't connect, or connect. So far I have had it connected for a maximum of 20 minutes before it drops connection. This can range from dropping for a few minutes, to hours. As of right now, it will not even find the internet.

Suddenly the wireless stopped working. The connection works on other computers, and the drivers seem to be updated.
When I try to click on the wireless console bar icon called "wireless console 2", I see all the options which usually worked to switch between only wifi enabled, only bluetooth, both or neither, and that its now set to "wireless LAN and bluetooth disabled" but I canīt change it, it just appears for a second and dissapears. Also the keyboard shortcut Fn plus F2 which used to work is not.
I tried system restore to the day before and it didnīt make any difference. Then I tried to restore it to 5 days before and it doesnīt let me.
On the diagnose for windows network it says something like: "the wireless functionality is disabled on this computer". Then when I click on diagnose also on the menu of Intel wireless, itīs saying "Wireless hardware is not bound to transport driver".

A:Wifi not working on my laptop, but does on others, even when they are in my room.

What operating system are you using?

What you can first try is plugging directly into the router and see if the problem still occurs. If it does, let me know. If it doesn't, try removing the network and then re-adding it.

If that doesn't help, boot into safe mode with networking to see if that problem still occurs:
- Turn on the computer or reboot it
- Continually press the f8 key until the advanced boot dialog appears
- Choose safe mode with networking
- Test the wifi - does the problem still occur?

Hello All,

I am trying to fix my brother-in-law's laptop hp pavilion dv6, windows 7 (64-bit). He is having problems connecting to the internet through the laptop wifi. It shows all the surrounding routers including his, but won't connect either way. He has a sprint wifi card that he uses to connect with no problems. Now, if that is working, than what is causing the laptop wifi not to work? I even looked on the hp website for any answers, and this is what I have read from other people using the same model:

1) Having the laptop plugged in the ac for most of the time might cause the motherboard to overheat and cause the wifi to not function. (My brother-in-laws does kinda have it plugged in most of the time, that I have seen.)

2) Might have to download the new version of the Bios, wireless assistant, and the wireless drivers off the hp website. Install software, reboot and just incase re-install the bios and that should fix the problem.

3) The motherboard might be the problem, might have to fix or buy a new motherboard. (Heh! Ahhhhh, I hope not, it's not even 6 months old.)

Well if anybody out there have any suggestions as to how this problem can be fixed, please feel free to throw them my way.

Hi. Can someone plese help me with this. I would like to take and existing web connection thats on a laptop and send it to a new Netgear wireless modem providing an internet connection for devices out of the wifi modem. My original connection is from a DSL modem and is connected via wifi to my laptop. Here is what i tried so far: The router i want to use now is connected to my laptop via Ethernet cable and goes into the Wan port of the router. First i simply turned on sharing on my existing wifi connection and the internet icon on the router is green but when i go to status of the router it says no web connection and devices such as an ipod don't receive any internet. Next i tried to bridge the connection but that did not work either even though my laptop showed that they were bridged.

Please help as i have spent 8 hours on this already.

Now sometomes when I'm using it, it starts making strange noises, and when the noise starts my internet doesnt work "even if its connected", I can type in google but it doesnt do the search, like if it freezes, I can type in word sometomes not, until it stops the noise then what I typed into google continues and everything is fine. When Im using netflix sometimes it even stops the streaming until the noise ends.  What can I do?

A:Noise in my laptop wifi stops working and I can't ...

What is the model number?

When I continuously use my laptop for 50-60 mins then my wifi network starts showing limited connection and I have to re-start it to get it fixed. I don't understand if problem is with wifi (hardware) or software issues.

Hey guys,

I've been having a problem for a few days and have been looking everywhere for a solution with no luck thus
far. I recently moved in with my girlfriend and my internet plan didn't include a router. Since she's not going to stay here for long (just til the end of the year), I've been routing the net from the cable modem through my laptop so all of our devices can
be connected.
Problem started happening when she had to plug the cable on her laptop one day as I was away for uni and we
simply cannot take the damn cable out of it. I'm working on getting a replacement one before I can try bruteforcing it, but I'm also worried that it might break the port.

In any case, we've been using her laptop as the router for the last few weeks, but somehow Virtual Router Manager
doesn't work here (it fails to recognize the virtual mini port), so I'm manually routing it using the netsh wlan script. The problem is that it simply stopped working last week and I have no idea why.
The network is still being set succesfully and all devices can connect to it, but they can't connect to the
internet. Doing a adapter troubleshooting, windows says it's because it doesn't have a valid IP connection. I've since looked for solutions for this online, but none of them fit my problem.

I've tried the netsh reset log commands with to no avail. The computer connected to the wired modem has perfect
connection (I'm currently writing from it), it's just the hosted wifi that doesn't w... Read more

No matter what I try, disable then enable wifi adapter, try wifi device diagnose mode, checked power setttings - high proformance i cannot get th wifi to reconnect, it does not see the sidds. as far as i can tell the device is on just not working, I have to reboot laptop to get wifi working.

A:Hosted Wifi Network (through laptop) suddenly not working

there is a little bit of plastic that needs to be pushed down to release the plug from the socket - I have had to use a screwdriver to push it down on some connections
