Q: intel wireless n2230 drops constantly

HiI hope someone can help me, this problem has been ongoing since the first day i bought it in 2012 december. the wifi disconnects to a 'limited' state. upon checking the device manager, the wireless adaptor is disabled. so i enable it and it gets back on again but no sooner is it on, it drops again. in 2014 i got dell tech to replace a new wifi card. on the spot, he too see how the new card didnt solve the problem. he nevertheless still left with the problem unsolved.recently the problem got very bad to a point it disconnects almost right away when i connect it back. i googled and found theres tonnes of issue with this wireless n2230. i came across a solution (disabling bluetooth). it worked for a day but the same thing came back after.i have done all sorts. factory reset, disabling and re-enabling, update windows and browsers and everything i can think of, its updated. im currently on win8, i do not know what other info i need to provide. i hope someone can help me im on the verge of smashing it out the window

My first question would be if you have upgraded to Windows 8.1. If not that would be the first thing I would do.
 
If you have 8.1 then I am assuming it is 64bit.
 
What is the make and model of the computer?

The network Wi-Fi constantly drops the connection in Windows 10. I have to go to device manager, disable it and then enable it to reconnect. This is very annoying and interrupts my work on the internet. What can I do to fix it?

My laptop is an Intel Pentium Inside, made by Toshiba.

From what I can tell, my laptop is the only one in the house that seems to have issues with its wireless connectivity. At any given point in time, it will just seem to have issues staying connected, drop the connection for a few moments, and then restore it a few seconds later.

Now, while this doesn't interfere with internet usage very often, this does mean that Instant Messengers and things such as chatrooms are frequently exited out of for me, which has grown to be very annoying.

Every time I move my laptop from one room to another or shut down the computer and start it back up, it drops the connection. Recently, it has even started randomly dropping the connection throughout the day.

I'm at wit's end, and I have no idea what to do. Can anyone help me with this?

Hello, I just recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad U310. I'm very satisfied with everything about it... except for one little problem.

It constantly drops the wireless connection, unless I'm in the same room as the router. If I'm in the same room, everything runs super fast, however, if I'm across the house or upstairs (the router is downstairs), it'll drop connection every 20-30 minutes. The weird thing is, other devices (4 laptops & 3 iPhones) work just fine. Even my old HP laptop has fine connection upstairs, so I'm starting to think it's a problem with my laptop's wireless card.

Another thing that makes me think it's the laptop's problem... I was with my dad at a public library using their wifi the other day. My dad's computer ran at an average speed while mine was ridiculously slow.

The card is Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200. I've updated the driver directly from the Intel website, but no help. I've tried changing channels, no help. I'm not sure what else I can do. Is it just simply because the laptop has a weak wireless network card? It can't be the router's problem right? Since all other devices work?

For the next two years I'll be living in a dorm, most likely using a ethernet cable, will this problem still appear if I'm not using the internet wirelessly?

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium, Intel Core i5, and since the laptop is new, I haven't downloaded/installed... Read more

Hey im having some trouble with my wireless adapter. I know that it is not my routers problem since i have my xbox set up into it and i never get any kind of lag on it same if i hook a pc up to it. Problem is my wireless adapter that is new will start out in the 40-50s mbps. But after a few mins of useing my computer it will make a sudden drop down anywhere from 1-18 mbps. I am the only person useing internet in my household and i have a good internet plan with verizon. Usealy the only way to fix this is to pull out my wireless adapter for a few mins than put it back in. If not i have to just do something else for a few hours and it will go back up again. I am getting a decent signal strength so i really do not understand the problem. Also when my mbps drops down very low it will even go so far as not letting me browse the internet at all. It will say i am connected to local and internet like normal yet i wont beable to connect to anything and i will have to restart my connection again.

I have a Netgear WGR614v.5 wireless router connected to my Quest DSL internet connection. My HP Pavilion laptop has problems connecting if it is not sitting in the same room as the router. The built in wireless card (Broadcom) will not see the network at all once it is in another room and the card I bought (D-Link) will pick up a connection in various places in the house, but will drop the connection if the computer gets moved my even an inch, sometimes less. It's extremely eratic. Both cards are included in my list of approved MAC addresses, and have the correct WEP password. There are three other laptops (Dell, Tosiba, Apple) that belong to family members or friends that have no problem connecting at all. The network signal is strong throughout the house. The settings on my HP are all equivalent to the settings on the compters that work, so I'm can't figure out why I can't connect. Anyone have an idea?

This is an area I have less knowledge on than other areas.

Is there a way to optimise my wireless router/connection?

When I'm in games, it drops me out, but I still have internetivity.

I'm baffled, and I'd like to give wireless a good chance, instead of thinking it is useless. I know a couple other people who use wireless, but don't get dropped, but experience ping spikes.

I gather that my dropping out is a result of some ping spiking, but it's not all because of a ping spike, am I correct?

_________________________________________________________________

Also:
I put in a DVDROM, to install UT3 and COD4. I had previously done some MS updates and needed to restart after installing COD4. When I restarted the DVDrom was no longer detected. The DVDrom does have power, but it gets cut off, when the Windows Loading screen starts up. Is this a problem I can fix in setup.

Also, my monitor connection worked it's way loose, and I tightened it, is this just a coincidence that I tightened the monitor cable and then the DVDrom no longer worked?

Thanks for any help.

Hi,
I have a Toshiba M45-S359 notebook laptop. About every 20-30 seconds, the wireless connection drops off (and immediately automatically reconnects). This is not a router issue because I tried 2 different routers (Linksys and Netgear) and also the wireless connection is perfectly stable on the other laptop I have. There are no interference issues. My phone operates at a very different (5.8 GHz) frequency. Also, the issue exists even when I have the laptop sitting very close to the router. Any suggestions/advice? Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone, this problem has got to the point to where I am not sure what to do next. I am a pc technician for a living so I never usually have problems I cannot fix on my own,

I have a Dell Studio 1745 Laptop and its only a few years old, I recently upgraded my router to be wireless a year or so ago and have had a few d/c issues here and there but mostly has not been a problem.

Recently I have had tons of d/c issues while playing warcraft or browsing the internet in general, anything really.
So I made the mistake of recently updating my WNR1000V3 router's firmware from my laptop's wireless connection. After I did this I saw all sorts of warnings (none built into the firmware itself, sigh) that this was a big no no.

Since then my d/c issues have been horrible but what it does now is my connection will be completely normal then all of a sudden my wireless access point will switch to 'No Internet Access' and it will drop my internet.

The only way I can get it back is to go into the other room and reset the router by either unplugging it, or pressing the reset button on the back, once it reboots and everything, my laptop sees the connection again, and it has Internet Access fine.
Soo I went and made the problem much worse, the lame part of the situation is before I had this firmware issue I was getting this problem anyways.

I decided if I could flash a older version of firmware to the router using my desktop that is wired to the router I could th... Read more

This is becoming very annoying as whenever I try to play a game, my ping spikes from 100 up to 7000. This isn't much of an issue when I'm closer to the router, but my room is probably the furthest distance in the house.

This is definitely an issue with my wireless card as placing this laptop with the intel n2230 next to my older laptop with an atheros AR9285 wireless card shows an unstable signal quality, bouncing from 90mbps up to 180 mbps (in my room it's from 10 mbps to 90 mbps). Is there anyway to create a more stable connection? Or do I need to buy a usb wifi adapter/ a new wireless card.

Okay so I've made the decision that I want to buy a new wireless card and physically replace my intel centrino n2230 on my windows 9.1 laptop This card has given me hell as long as I've had my laptop (which by the way is the HP Envy Dv 433ea - a seeming non existant laptop that I can't find support for anywhere on the internet)  Before anyone advises to update drivers or anything don't bother.  I have literally tried everything from the latest drivers to the oldest drivers and everything in between. The connection I get it always slow and will periodically drops disconnecting mefrom the internet - which I have concluded is the most frustrating thing I've ever had to deal with. So to the actual question. I've heard there are things such as bios restricions and there will obviously be size restrictions so I wanted to check with someone a little more experienced before I go out and buy a wirelss card that doesn't do the trick. So again I guess the question I'm asking is: What wireless card do I buy that will not cause any of the afformentioned problems that will fit in my laptops card slot and that will work with the bios? Thank you so much I know this was a long question but I have to stress how much this card has pissed me off I have been running around left right and center trying to get a fix but no avail - this is kind of my last resort.

Hi,

I've researched the forum a little bit already about this issue, but haven't found a real solution yet. I have a brand new Lenovo X200 w/ an Intel 5300 AGN wireless card, and my connection drops and immediately reconnects very often. As I'm typing this, it has happened several times.

On recommendations from various forum posts, I have:
1) Installed the latest Intel driver (13.0.0.107) - supplied by Lenovo on recommendation from Intel's site.
2) Disabled IP6 in my wireless adapter
3) Played around with various power settings
4) Played around with various device driver advanced settings.

Nothing seems to make a difference. If anyone knows how to alleviate this issue, please let me know.

Thanks.

Below is my sysinfo. I have a Lenovo Y560 that worked fine up excepting a keyboard issue that I fixed based on a youtube posting. The fix was to tape a small piece of antistatic tape under the keyboard over a screwlike piece of metal. Apparently that metal was causing static by rubbing against the keyboard data cable. It fixed the problem. Previous to the fix, various keyboard keys prompted shortcut keys (maddening and couldn't type).

After assembling the keyboard and the top of the keyboard pad (was very careful to not bring static and assemble properly), the wireless connection began to drop. I have another laptop (Asus) with a similar set-up but a Centrino wifi card (vs. Intel 1000 bgn for the Lenovo) and it was connecting to the wifi no problem. Often, I'll see a yellow sun symbol over the wifi bars or a blue animated circle or a red x. Changing the standard settings does not help. Attaching an ethernet cable brings up a perfect connection. Help! Some things I've thought could be the problem:

1) I've covered an antenna of some sort with the anti-static plastic (pea-sized piece).
2) My wifi card is bad and coincidentally went out when I fixed the other problem above.
3) When the keyboard problem existed, I hit a shortcut that reconfigured the wifi somehow (but it

Hello, my R51 (2887-32G) randomly drops wireless connection, especially when starting to download large files. For instance, when I try to download iTunesSetup.exe, the download is interrupted. Instead, if I just surf webpages, the problem occurs less.I tried a Live Distro (xubuntu) and this problem does not occur there. The problem manifests with Windows XP (with all latest updates and sp), using the 1.2.4.41. There used to be more recent drivers on intel's website, but I saw that they've removed them. I remember using this laptop 3 years ago with and wireless was OK - no trouble at all. And I do remember I was using the intel driver. Unfortuantely, I have no backup of this driver and upgraded my R51 in the meantime, so I am with the default drivers again. Or maybe SP3 might be the problem? Thanks for any advice! Message Edited by pi4630 on 01-29-2009 10:57 PM

I am having the EXACT same problem on a T41 with the same card. There is a thread in that forum for it. I even tested doing the same as yourself with 8.0.4 Xubuntu.. no problems. I think this is an SP3 issue. I also see that Intel has issued an EOS on this card.. so I would assume we are not going to see anymore updates that would help us out. Please if you do find a solution, post it. I think an upgrade of wireless card if you want to continue to use SP3 will have to be the choice. James

Hi all,

I am trying to install an Intel Centrino Wireless card N2230 in a mini PC with an Asrock Intel N3150-ITX mainboard, running Windows 7 Professional, 64bit. It's not working, though. Out of the box, the system configuration shows me a Bluetooth device (which is obviously the N2230 card), but no Wifi card.

I downloaded the very latest drivers for Win7-64bit from the Intel website, but that just makes things worse. Upon reboot, the windows logo moves just reeeeeeaaaaaallllllyyyyyy slow (hardly at all, in fact) and never completes. System restoration will ultimately crash (I see the screen where I can confirm returning to the last configuration, but hitting ENTER does nothing). When I remove the card, the computer will boot normally, and when I reinsert the card, I'm back to the initial status (Bluetooth device, but no Wifi card detected - booting without issues).

Does anyone have a clue what this is supposed to tell me? Computer seems to be fine with a different Wifi card, so I see two options:

1. Card and mainboard models are not compatible. If so, how could I have found out, and - more importantly - where can I find reliable information to make sure my next pick is actually compatible?

2. Card is defective. Means it will work if I have it replaced with a different N2230.

Any ideas? Many thanks in advance!

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 an Alienware M14x, Windows 7 and Killer Wireless N1202 Wireless Adapter. My issue is that I'll be on a game server humming along just fine (lets say Minecraft for now) when all of a sudden I notice that I haven't been getting connection for about 7 seconds then. Once its over everythings okay. However, it happens almost once every minute and it lasts for much longer at times resulting in my getting kicked for no response. It doesn't hamper normal browsing but its an obvious pain for gaming. I solved it once before, a while back, but its come back in its original form. I couldn't find the method I used before. All I remember is reading a forum that said to uninstall something from my Device Manager that Windows had added in and once I did it worked beautifully. I think it might have cropped back up in an update or something. But I have tried renewing my IP, turning off power saving on my network adapter, restarting everything, but I can't find that utility to uninstall nor the forum I saw. I could really use some help here...

Ok to make things as clear as possible:

Equipment Used:
I am using a Belkin 802.11g Wireless Router - "54g"

Along with a:

2WIRE Modem provided by Telstra Bigpond (Australia) [Not sure what model] (it's not a modem/router, just a plain modem)

Now I bought the Belkin router and it's an Australian Model as seen here
PROBLEM:
Brief:
The connection from my computer to the internet drops every few mins for a few seconds (About 20-30)

Detailed Life Story:
I had Optus net using a motorola netstream 4200 modem prior on the OptusNet ISP "DSL" network (512/128). After some problems with payment/money issues I upgraded to Telstra Bigpond's ADSL Network (1500/256).

Now supplied with the new modem stated above I installed it normally then attached it to the router once I finished configuring it using the ISP's provided CD.

The Internet was working fine for the first few hours and I didn't notice any dropouts or what ever (Maybe because I wasn't very attentive). A couple days later I started noticing drop outs frequently ie. D/Cing from MSN, Downloads Stopping, Firefox not loading during the drop causing me to refresh, D/C during Counterstrike Games.

Now I thought it was the modem at first so I did the process of elimination and directly connected the modem to my computer (Removed the router from the equation) and BAM no dropouts. Only problem is now my sister has no net! So obviously I have to reconnect the router on to and blah b... Read more

Hi, i have been having some problems with my internet connection in that it drops constantly, as in every 20 - 30 minutes or so. I live in a house where there are three laptops in operation but mine is the only one with this problem. i have tried moving to different areas around the house but this still doesnt help and the problem persists. It is even worse when i am streaming something such as a video or when im on skype sometimes dropping out after 5 minutes.
I thought it might be my computer but it also happens on my phone at the same time as it drops on my laptop.
about a year ago my laptop did overheat which damaged some of the components and that has been a persistent problem also but the last time this happened was about two months ago and this problem with the internet has only been present for about a week!
I am at a loss and have no idea what why it is happening or how to fix it. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thankyou.

Good Evening,  I recently purchased a Lenovo Erazer x315 for my girlfriend which worked fine for the first week. Now however the Wi-Fi keeps dropping connection, though it shows it?s still connected and she has to manually disconnect and reconnect to the Wi-Fi. It has disconnected her 4 times in the last hour as I've been trying to google solutions. She did the scan via the diagnostics page on this website and nothing failed. We thought it could be her router taking a dump, but her old laptop has been able to maintain a connection throughout her disconnects. The tower is primarily used for Teamspeak, Archeage, Minecraft, YouTube, FB, and a few artsy programs she has. Don?t know if any of that would affect it. Any help would be appreciated, being that I'm in the military, gaming is our main source of keeping in touch. The constant DC's are kind of aggravating to say the least.

We have a number of X1 Yoga 2nd Gen (20JG) w/ EM7455 LTE cards. We have updated all drivers on some machines but we continue to have issues w/ the card at time dropping connectivity to LTE and it not returning until a reboot or a disable/enable of the LTE card.When the connectivity hangs you are unable to ping any IP addresses. This occurs randomly but is seen within an hour of waking up from a sleep.  Lastest driver as of July 29, 2019 has helped some but not fixed the problem. We have tested newer firmware version for Verizon but in those cases when the connectivity issues happen the entire card resets itself losing connectivity anyway. We have tested on Windows 10 1803 and 1903 w/ similar results. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I've always thought so highly of HP and as such, decided to purchase an HP laptop - an HP Envy 15-K233ca Notebook. I have had some issues from the start and one in particular, is making for a rather unpleasant experience. The wifi connection keeps dropping.  It drops when the system is put in sleep mode, when I surf the net and even after a reboot.   I walked through the issue (and a few others) with HP's  help desk this evening and after 2 hours was met with the same problem.  I am now having to reboot the computer and troubleshoot to try and maintain a wifi connection.  This is my first experience with an HP Laptop and I'm disappointed.  It's unfortunate, but I may have to return it.  I'll be walking over to Apple for a replacement.   If someone from HP can resolve this for once and for all, it would be helpful. Otherwise, I will have no choice but to return the unit. Note:  I've noticed that others experience the same issue.  I requested that HP's Help Desk install drivers to resolve the issue.  If this didn't work after our session this evening, then I'm afraid it may be a hardware issue.

Hello,
My laptop consistently manages to drop its connection, despite every other device in the house managing to access websites just fine, my iPhone 6 for example.
My WiFi connector is Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter.
Sometimes as I connect to a website, this pops up:
"Your connection was interrupted
A network change was detected
ERR_NETWORK_CHANGED"
Or sometimes:
"There is no Internet connection
Try:
Checking network cables (these are fine since other devices work)
Reconnecting to WiFi (also fine since my laptop says I am connected and have Internet access even though I don't)
Running Windows Diagnostics (when I did this last time it just said "No problems detected" or something along those lines).
I am using Windows 10 and when I open the WiFi list, it says I am "Connected, secured" to my WiFi.
I have run Malwarebytes AntiMalware, CCleaner, Adware Cleaner, Malwarebytes JunkWare Removal Tool, MalwareBytes AntiRootkit and Avast Antivirus Free.
No viruses/trojans found.
Could someone help me to see if there is anything hidden or if its something else?
Thank you!

My computer is a Toshiba Sattelite o/s win 7. My wi fi signal is excellent, yet my signal keeps dropping or saying limited access. I have tried resetting the router and resetting my default windows settings on the computer. All other lap tops and wireless devices in the house do not have an issue. I discovered the other day as long as the laptop ( not the router) is plugged in and not running on batter power that i do not have a problem staying connected. For fun i wondered if it had something to do with the power cord making some kind of connection when plugged into the lap top, (since everything is more compact in them) I tried having the power cord plugged into the lap top but not into a power source but I still lost signal. Any suggestions?
 

A:Wifi connection constantly drops when lap top is operating on battery power

Sounds like you may have some power saving option for the wireless adapter when on battery. If so, try a higher (e.g., maximum performance) setting.

My attachment shows that for the plan I'm using I have 'medium power saving' for the wireless when on battery. If I were having your problem I would change that setting to 'Maximum Performance' and test.

Several months ago I recieved a custom Laptop from PCspecialist.co.uk and until recently it had met all my expectations. In the last couple of weeks however, I have noticed a significant drop in performance.

Processor: Intel i7 2720QM 2.20Ghz
GPU: 2Gb Radeon HD 6990M
RAM: 8Gb DDR3
OS: Windows 7

The laptop was bought as a high power gaming laptop and it served its purpose very well until recently, when games that had been performing perfectly became sluggish and laggy.
I have downloaded and run Passmark and it has given my processor a score of 2000 vs the normal 6-7000 for its type and the result for the graphics card was similarly far below the standard benchmark.
The laptop doesn't seem to generate any heat even on intense games, even though it did so previously, so for whatever reason it doesn't seem to be working as hard.
I haven't got many programs installed as the laptop was intended for gaming and light web browsing so the HD is relatively empty.
Even Skype has been complaining of low performance.
I'd just like to know what is wrong with my laptop and how I can get it's edge back.
Any help is appreciated, Thanks in advance!
 

A:Performance drops with Intel i7 & Radeon HD 6990M

ok, I have installed some monitoring software for my CPU and graphics card and I can tell you that even with a game running, the graphics card doesn't even seem to be active.
This is using AMD System monitor.
Is it possible that I have somehow gotten stuck on Internal graphics? I doubt this as most internal graphics probably can't manage Supcom even slightly but I don't know any other explaination. Everything I can monitor I am monitoring and neither CPU, GPU or RAM even seem to be coming close to maxing out and yet games are lagging and juddering and complaining about low performance.
This never used to happen and is literally a last couple of weeks thing.
Any help at all would be appreciated.

It depends on where the Wireless Access Point is located, and how many other A/P's are on the same channel(s) as the Access Point. Also if the power is dialed down on the Wifi, that can also cause issues.

Hi
I'm having this constant problem with my display. A couple of times a day, the screen blacks out for a second or so and then, when it comes back, a message appears saying that Intel Graphics Accelerator Driver for Windows Vista stopped responding and has now recovered. On top of it happening, my OS is not Vista (as you can see below).
It always happens while I am browsing the internet (I have read in many places about people having similar problems when they are playing games, but this is not my case).
Once it has recovered, I am usually unable to correctly browse through the webpage I was at before the crash. I have to close my browser (chrome) and start it again so that things work correctly.

Any help will be much appreciated!

Well, what makes you think there is no loss of the wireless connection?

Some things you can try here.
Change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

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

I'm trying to connect 2 laptops (Toshiba Satellite 1950 & P20). The P20 has built in 802.11g using Atheros AR5001x+. The 1950 has nothing so I got a Linksys WPC54G PCMCIA card to set up an ad hoc network between the 2.

After installing the card and setting the speed to 54Mbps on the 1950, I get a connection at 54 Mbps for 1-2 seconds and then they immediately revert back to 11 Mbps on the Windows Task Manager Window. The actual speed is about 1 Mbps. All I'm trying to do is copy a 100Mb file from one to the other.

Connecting the P20 to the internet using dial-up and using the 1950 doesn't do anything different. Slow, very slow!

I have tried almost every combination of configurations, channels, security, distances.

If anyone can shed some light on this, I would really appreciate this.
