P70 Docking Station constantly drops and reconnect...

Q: P70 Docking Station constantly drops and reconnect...

The new P70 Docking Station constantly drops and reconnects...something. I can tell by the beeps, so it's annoying. I don't know what it is, but it happens every ten minutes or so. The only thing connected is monitor, mouse, keyboard. Thoughts on how to diagnose?

Preferred Solution: P70 Docking Station constantly drops and reconnect...

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.)


The new P70 Docking Station constantly drops peripheral connection with. There is never a reconnection, just constant drop sound.I can tell which by the beeps. And the beeps are annoying. I don't know what it is, but it happens every ten minutes or so, sometimes every minute. The only thing connected is monitor, mouse, keyboard. Thoughts on how to diagnose? I've tried watching Device Manager, etc, but can't notice any change (or it's buried too deep)

I have a HP 6530b Laptop, and on-board Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet adapter.
When I remove my laptop from the docking station, I obviously lose Network connectivity, however, when I replace the laptop back (or even just plug in a cable directly), I cannot reconnect to the network until I reboot.
I've had this problem for about 2 years now, and finally decided to try and fix it.
I've googled it and searched on here, but without luck.

When I open Network and Sharing Center (Win7), and click change adapter settings the adapter is missing from the list (after i have removed laptop from docking station).

Can anyone please assist?


A:Unable to reconnect to Network after removing and returning to Docking Station

Some kind of lack of communication among PC, docking station and router I suppose. Let's see if we can find any hints in the following. Show an ipconfig /all for when you are docked with connection, un-docked, and then re-docked before a reboot. After the last one try

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

to see if that will get you going w/o a reboot.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:


[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Hello,I am using the Lenovo Thinkpad P50 with the 230W Lenovo docking station, with the latest BIOS (1.59) and all Lenovo driver updates. It runs Windows 10 Pro v1903, has 40GB RAM, Intel i7 @ 2.7GHz, Nvidia Quadro M1000M. The problem: Fan (even on low CPU loads) never turns off (and the noise is getting on my nerves). I have read a number of forum posts here, some of which speak of BIOS updates and firmware updates for the docking station, but none seem to apply.Changing the Windows Power Options (Processor management > System cooling policy > Plugged in) from passive to active makes no difference. What must be done so that the fan turns off on low CPU use?Thank you in advance for competent hints and guidance in solving this.

I have a Latitude E7740 that runs Ubuntu Xenial (16.04). I dock it to a "Dell EURO2 Advanced E-port II" docking station. 
If I boot it in the docking station, everything works fine, and I find all my two DVI-connected monitors. 
However, if I undock, then put it into the dock again while running, it fails to enable the screens. I'm using a script called autorandr for switching between display modes - it uses xrandr. It tries to run:
xrandr --output DP1-1 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 0x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal --output DP1-2 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 1920x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal
But the X server responds with:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)  Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)  Minor opcode of failed request: 21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)  Serial number of failed request: 48  Current serial number in output stream: 48
Running this exact command after booting in the dock is doing the right thing, but after undocking then docking, it doesn't work.
Any ideas here? I have updated to the latest BIOS version.
Problem also reported in launchpad with lot's of debug info, here:
Autorandr script is here: github.com/.../

Hello -  My x220 does not lock into  Mini Docking Station Series 3 that I bough recently. The rubber pads on the battery seem to be preventing the laptop from being docked. (Not sure if I am doing something wrong instead.) Also I am trying to set up a multi monitor display ( Dell U2415). Will appreciate some inputs on how I should resolve both the issues or a link if that has been covered before .

Every time my wireless drops out, I need to restart windows and click the "Turn wireless on" button in windows mobility centre before it will reconnect. Usually it is after i get a "Limited connectivity" error message.

I'm using a Fujitsu Lifebook T Series Tablet running Windows Vista (Business).
I have recently changed to a Netgear "RangeMax" Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (however I'm *pretty* sure this didnt start happening until a month after I started using it)

When I open windows mobility centre after the wireless drops out, the caption on the wireless button is still "Turn wireless off", and clicking on it does nothing. Its not until i restart windows that the caption changes to "Turn wireless on" and I can get wireless working again. When I do click on it, the caption changes as expected.

Do you have any ideas on why my wireless does not reconnect after it drops and how i can fix it? Failing that, is there any way that I can turn wireless back on without using Windows mobility centre, or fix windows mobility centre so that the button allows me to turn wireless back on.

Please let me know what further information would help and also whether or not i have posted it in the right section (I assumed it's a software issue as windows mobility center doesnt update).

Thanks a lot.

Hey guys/gals!

This problem just recently started happening with my computer. I'll be playing a video game or surfing the web or whatever and all of a sudden my wifi connection will drop.

So I'll click the wifi symbol at the bottom right hand corner of the screen to reconnect... but even though it will say that there are connections when I hover over the icon, the list of possible connections will be blank.

I uploaded a screenshot to imgur so you can see for yourself: http://i.imgur.com/qAC5YX1.jpg

The only way for me to fix this problem is to system restore to a few days ago. But this is getting pretty tedious.

Help please?

A:Internet Randomly Drops and I Can't Reconnect to Wifi? W10

Read other 10 answers

i have had a stange problem commence a few days ago, I have checked numerous threads on this forum which address inet dropouts but still cannot work out why it is occurring.
Hardware as follows:
Pentium 4 3GHz
TP-Link  TL-WN751ND wireless (firmware v1.1)
XP Pro SP3
AvastPro AntiVirus
Malwarebytes Pro
I am running of ONLY one router.
For some unknown reason a few days ago my inet connection dropped out.  After trying all the basic attempts to fix it, I found the only way to reconnect was to create a BRIDGE in Network Connections and to bridge my wireless driver with the V100 driver, and then immediately UNbridge them.
This allowed me to reconnect but the system keeps dropping out at random intervals, sometimes after 20 minutes, others after 2hours.  On average, it drops out every hour odd.  Every time it drops out, I again have to perfom the bridging/unbridging to get it going again.
I have since performed the following to no avail:
 - Upgraded to the latest version of T-Link firmware
 - REPAIRED Windows XP system
 - Restored latest wireless drivers/firmware again
 - run all microsoft updates
 - disabled Avast & Malware
 - Ran Microsoft Malicous ware tool

Hey all,

Hope I can get some help with a problem that has been bugging me since I installed W10.

This problem appears to be random and happens a couple of time a month. It is really annoying. What happens is, the WiFi appears to stop working. It can't find any available networks and won't reconnect no matter what I do. I have even tried closing/restarting explorer but that does nothing. If I try to shut-down or restart my computer, it just hangs on the shut-down/restart screen. I have to hold down the power button to get my computer to shut-down. The weird thing is, after a restart, it works fine ...for a few weeks. It just seems very strange.

I use a WiFi dongle. I have a couple of them so I tried each one - they all eventually give me the same result . I have a HP if that helps. I notice that my father in law's rig also does this occasionally. He also has a HP, albeit a different model.

A:WiFi drops out and can't reconnect, computer hangs on shutdown/restart

I'm having the same issues. I don't use a wifi dongle though. My computer is toshiba satellite P75. The problem has happened a couple of times since upgrading to Windows 10 a month ago.
