Laptop, default gateway drops

Q: Laptop, default gateway drops

Hello,

At first, thanks for the input to help me. Friday i was updating/installing test server from World of Tanks. During the download of the test server (file of 7.5GB) i got twice a BSOD telling me the driver of the network caused the problem.

Of course, i was a bit surprised, though did have 2 BSOd's in past. One in april and one in may. The last fresh installation with keeping one partition is from february 2014 (along the olympic games). I have tried googling since the problem started and came further and further to most likely causes of the problem. Later on, friday evening, i did have a great connection between the modem and my laptop. After about 1,5 hour the problem appeared again. Saturday/Sunday seemed like the problem was only appearing for 2 minutes an hour with in meantime some 2-3 sec lagg a couple times.

In home there is a modem and a router, both providing a wifi-point. the one of the modem keeps disappearing, and sometimes the one of router as well. Since today i cannot even access the modem wifi anymore after using the troubleshooter. It is not visible all the time in my available wifi-connections and

BSOD:
- April, 1 was either the realtek audio driver or the network driver. Audio driver is updated after BSOD.
- May, 1 was either the realtek audio driver or the network driver.
- June, 2 times the network driver.
I found out what the problems exactly were, using WhoCrashed.

Connection:
- Wifi of router is available most of the time
- Wifi of modem is disappearing all the time
- Problems occured from Friday morning.

Checks:
- Network driver, i went to realtek website (MediaTek Inc. - MediaTek), though got no idea about which driver is meant for me, so not clear for me as frequent laptop user.
- Installations done from friday (Note that i did not install anything from tuesday to thursday).
- Running MBAM, installed Microsoft Security Essentials.

Laptop: Asus K73SV TY080V

No idea if it helps, but the wifi keeps identifying and then resulting in no access. Could it be an networksetting in the wifi of my laptop connection to it?

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.)

If you are using both of these as an access point then it's required that you make adjustments to the routers DHCP settings.

Hello, I am having a somewhat bizarre, extremely frustrating issue. I can connect to the internet via wireless just fine, and everything will be hunky-dory for a while. After a while, however (this varies anywhere from a day to a week), there will be a small hiccup on the connection, and then something fails in the Acquiring Network Address stage. My computers will get an IP, but they will not get the default gateway or DNS server.

I say computers because this happens on both my PC and laptop. This issue does NOT, however, occur for anyone else in the household.

I have tried a plethora of fixes, from simple computer reboots to fiddling with all sorts of settings, and nothing works to reestablish the connection. My father has also tried fixing it, to no avail. I have to go and reset my router, which also interrupts TV service, because it is through AT&T U-Verse. Needless to say, this does not make other people in the household very happy, and I really shouldn't have to be resetting my router every couple of days like that.

My PC uses a Netgear WG111v3 adapter and is Windows XP. My laptop has on-board Wifi and is Windows XP Professional. I am not sure why I am the only person in the household that experiences this issue. Could certain programs like AIM be causing problems?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I am running Windows 7Ultimate. My Internet connection keeps getting dropped, and when I run the troubleshooter, I can get two different messages: "Troubleshooter Couldn't identify the problem" or "The default gateway is not available." When I get the first, I might as well give up getting on the Internet. When I get the second, the problem can be fixed. Any amount of time later, my connection is dropped again. It can be a day or just an hour

A:Internet drops out randomly - "The Default gateway is not available"

Is this computer the only one on the network? I assume your computer is set to DHCP aka getting an IP etc from your router?

I have a brand new laptop built from Digital Storm but their tech support has been lacking. The laptop is absolutely fine, except I cannot connect to wireless networks anywhere. I'll keep connected for 10-15 minutes and then lose connection. If I troubleshoot the problem, it'll eventually repair itself with the message "Default gateway not available". Afterwards, the net will work again for a variable amount of time before I have to do it again.
The drivers should be the newest, I updated them at the behest of Digital Storm but it didn't fix the issue. Their next suggestion was to replace the network card but I want to see if there is another solution before I start having to open it up and replace components(Which I really don't want to do.)
I am not sure what information will be needed to assist but I'll include my Dxdiag and my ipconfig /all to start.

Hi,

I have a new 3G router which I am trying to connect to an all-in-one PC-LCD monitor (for digital signage) via LAN. The PC is running XP-embedded.

The problem is that I can't see the router from the PC. I have plugged it in, connected it via LAN and set the Local Area Connection to Obtain IP automatically and DNS automatically.

However I get limited or no connectivity and clicking repair says it cannot renew IP address. If I do ipconfig, there is no default gateway showing.

Therefore if I go to IE and type 192.168.01 which is what the IP should be, it can't find anything.

It isn't to do with the 3G network, because I can't even access the router config page, before even thinking about getting to the outside world.

It doesn't seem to be the LAN connection/wiring because the LAN light on the router flickers when the PC is trying to get an IP, so it is connecting ok.

It also doesn't appear to be an issue which resetting the router would solve, since I just unplugged it and plugged it into my laptop LAN and as soon as I typed 192.168.01 into IE, it works fine on my laptop.

Any suggestions most welcome as I am stumped...

Cheers
Ian

Hi. How is everyone? I am having trouble with my wireless connection. I am using a D-link wireless card and a D-link modem/router. My wireless internet connection drops out about every hour, I refresh my browser, press reconnect to MSN Messenger and it is all good again. But every so often I drops out and won't reconnect, I need to restart the computer to get it connected again. When it does this, I press troubleshoot on messenger and it gives a message " Default gateway - your gateway appears to be offline ". Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks for your replies.

I am running Win 8.0 with the StartIsBack overlay and a wireless Motorola SBG6580 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway. I am 12 feet from the gateway and usually have 4 bars in signal strength but as I use the internet I drop to 3 bars and my web pages don't update. Within 1 minute after that I get No Internet Access on my wireless. I disconnect and reconnect and everything is good again for about 3 to 5 minutes then it happens again. If I reboot the gateway all seems good for a longer time. My wife runs Win 7.0 and does not have any problems. I am running a secure WEP wireless. My next door neighbor has an unsecured Motorola SB6800 gateway that I can connect to and am not dropped ever. If I connect an Ethernet cable to the gateway it works great. I am betting this must be a config problem in my laptop (Dell inspiron X14) - anybody have any solution to this?

A:Win 8 /Motorola gateway drops internet access frequently

The SB6580 is notorious for wifi drops. You are better off getting a SB6141, a wired router like the TP-Link TL-R600VPN, and an Access Point. I use the Engenius ECB-350 with no issues.

When your provider loads their firmware on the SB6580. There is something in there that causes wifi to become very poor in stability.

the lap top is not mine so i do not know any of the specs of it off hand the casing does not have a model name/number. i do know it is running windows 8.1 and that this issue occurred after waking the laptop up from hibernate. i know this is not much to go off of but any help regarding this issue would greatly help me out. thank you.

Hi guys,

I posted about this issue before (http://forums.techguy.org/networking/1130599-weirdest-wireless-issue-ive-ever.html#post8946789) but there's been an update since then.

To cut it short, me and my girlfriend use the same model of wireless card (Asus PCE-N15). Our PCs are in the same room, maybe 4 feet apart. The network works fine when only I'm connected, but when her PC gets turned on there's some serious issues. Previously, when she connected, mine would die instantly (and hers would never work at all) until she disconnected, then things would be fine.

Well, I took the card out and re-seated it in the PC again, as well as changing the drivers, and now I have a new problem. It'll work for a long time, and then suddenly die for both of us. When I select to troubleshoot the connection on either PC, it will think for a while before saying that the "default gateway was not available". It solves this problem successfully, and suddenly both our internet connections work again.

I am seriously stumped as to why this might be. Previously I thought it was a connection issue between her PC and the card, since it didn't sit in the slot without wobbling, but that's no longer an issue (for some reason) and the problem still persists.

Can using the same model of wireless card cause clashes on the network? Can I resolve this using static IP addresses or something? What does "default gateway not available" even mean, and why wou... Read more

My XP desktop has recently stopped being able to connect to the internet. I connect my router/modem with a Micronet SP907GK USB wireless adaptor. I am unable to connect to the web with any browser though I AM able to reach the router configuration pages. The windows live messenger troubleshooter tells me that it can confirm an IP but fails in testing "default gateway".

I am still able to connect through the same router using my Linux laptop.

I have tried turning off the windows firewall and the router wirewall. I have tried using the windows network configuration tool and using the Micronet configuration utility with and without zero-config.

I can't think what can have changed on the computer to cause this.

A:Default Gateway

First thing you need check is the correct address for your router's admin. This is either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, unless it has been changed. Which one is used depends on the brand of the router. Have a look at your quick start guide or user manual.

Second thing, since you have DHCP off (in your router - the 169.254.x.x address), you have to manually configure your IP, Subnet and default gateway. The first will be in the range 192.168.x.2 - 192.168.x.254, where x is either 0 or 1, depending on your router's configuration. The subnet will be 255.255.255.0, and the default gateway is the IP address of your router.

DNS servers will be picked up from your router once you are connected, or you can manually enter them like 208.67.222.222 / 208.67.220.220 (OpenDNS), etc.

Or, you can turn on DHCP in your router and let it assign your device(s) the required addresses. This is a better idea because it allows you to roam around and automatically get IP addresses.

After a minute or so of initial use, it stops working and when I run the troubleshooter it discovers that the default gateway is not available, and then it says that it has fixed the problem. However, after only a minute or so more, the internet once again fails.

I am using a router with internet access with the default gateway of 192.168.1.1 and another router with intranet access with the default gateway of 192.168.105.4 and the internet router is not being accessed even with the correct address. It thinks those two are the same.

A:Default Gateway not doing anything

Based on my limited understanding, a router wouldn't have a default gateway... they each have an address, and it can be used as your client system's default gateway.

What is your network mask on your client? What is the ip of your client? My guess is that your client is 192.168.105.x with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 based on your description. The client will send all requests outside of the local network to whichever is set as its default gateway, which should (I believe) be on the same subnet.

Since you have 2 gateways, you will probably need to do some sort of routing beyond what is provided with a default gateway.

I have trouble connecting to the internet. Well sometimes it works... and then it stops for "no reason". It is really annoying especially that my flatmates laptops work well...

I found on the other thread that this is what I should do... ipconfing/all... so here is what came up. At the time of pulling this ipconfig I was connected to my phone hot spot... I dont know if it makes difference (Im not computer geek. You can figure that since Im asking here for help ;] )

I have got Win 7.

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from the PC manufacturer's web site. If you already have that one reinstall it anyhow in case the installed instance is corrupted.

What security applications are, or ever were, on the system?

Try also ...

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista and 7 and 8.

Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt. [For Windows 8: <Windows Logo> + x - Command Prompt(Admin)]

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

For some time now, when I surf the net, I often get disconnected with the wording "default gateway not available". Using the troubleshooting function provided by Windows the correction is carried out immediately, but unfortunately the problem persists. I have a home network which includes 2 desktop computers (connected via cable) and other mobile devices, and the problem occurs only on one of the desktop computers. OS: Windows 7 Router: NETGEAR DGN1000. I do not know what other information should I add, thank you in advance for your help.

Hi there,
I just did a clean install of Win7 from WinXP 4-5 days ago. In 2+ years of owning this computer I've never had internet problems, but now I've been having this disconnecting issue that's the same as other people's with different setups. I have a Realtek PCIe GBE NIC. I saw a few posts about this default gateway issue, but the majority of people I saw having this same issue were using an Nvidia Nforce driver or something of the like.

I was having this issue with the default windows 7 driver, and 'updated' it to the realtek drivers, and am still having the same issues. XP used to tell me the exact model of my NIC, Win7 doesn't, but it seems that the drivers from realtek are fairly generic anyway: Realtek
That one, obviously for windows 7, is the one I installed before trying anything else.


Here's a post I tried troubleshooting from. default gateway not available in windows 7
I'm having the exact same problem as those people, but nothing there really seemed to address my issue.

Here's another one that was closer to mine "the default gateway is not available"

I tried assigning a static IP to the IPv4 as someone suggested, and I didn't disconnect for a long while, but when I loaded ventrilo to talk to a friend while playing a game I disconnected and had an entirely different issue that's hard to explain...

I have a dell inspiron 1525 notebook. I connect to the router and when I give it the old ipconfig /all I get no COnnection-specific DNS Suffix OR Default Gateway.

I am connected to the internet via a wireless router and an extender...The connection was good and had a strong signal. Now it is off and on, mostly off. When I can get a connection, it sometimes lasts only as long as it takes to click on a link. Then no servie... I seldom have a connection for more than a few minutes at a time.

I have seen several error messages when I trouble-shoot. The one I see most often is "The default gateway is not available'.

I did not think to write the other errors down, hopefully a fix for this will take care of the problem.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide. And once I go home I may not be able to respond in a timely manner.
 

A:'The default gateway is not available'

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 following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the router and if you have a separate modem, the make and exact model of the modem.

Please make a note of the status of the lights on the modem and on the router when working normally - post that light status here.
Now when the internet disconnects make a note of the status of the lights for the modem and router here again. also note which have changed.

you listed as having norton and fully upto date - are you subscribed to norton or using a trail version
What other firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Mcafee , AVG etc
------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.

I have my desktop using a TP-Link WN722N USB wireless adapter to connect to my modem router. I get to browse for about a minute before I get dropped. Windows Network Diagnostics tells me that the problem is that the Default Gateway is not found, and then restarts the Wireless adapter, reconnects, then the cycle of browsing for a minute and disconnecting continues. None of my other computers that are wireless are facing this issue. I have the latest drivers for the wireless adapter. I have Microsoft Security Essentials installed.

Hello all,

Essentially on my apartments network I can connect and get Internet access, but at random intervals while still maintaining a connection to the network I lose all Internet access. If I run the network repair diagnostic it resets the wireless adapter says it fixed the problem of the default gateway not being available and access is restored only to be booted in the same fashion a varying amount of time later repeating the cycle.

Windows 8.1 hp envy x360 less than a month of use.

Also not sure if it's relevant or not but to put it in reference it is only this network I am having trouble with. Used to have issues connecting to it at all and would BSOD occasionally but I believe I have solved this by updating some drivers and removing McAfee (meant to anyway but this forced my hand and beat laziness).

All help appreciated, and thank you in advance.

If you are losing connection, that means that their Access Point is not powerful enough, or that they do not have enough Access Points to cover the whole building.

You can try an external USB adapter with a USB extension cable and see if that helps any. they do make USB Dongles with 2.5db antennas on them.

Most of the time it is not out long enough to display the no connectivity icon or stop music from streaming but it is noticeable. When I run the troubleshooter it says that the default gateway is unavailable. I tried manually setting the connection information but the same thing keeps happening except the troubleshooter then says that DHCP is not enabled.

Hello, I had this problem and is probably thje most annoying.

I always have an error showing up in my network, due to "no default gateway available" which can easily be fixed by using "Diagnose" but it will show again after about a min or 5mins. It's really annoying. I'm on a internet shop atm so I'm not able to fill up some more info about my laptop but when I got a good signal I might post it here.

P.S. my friends laptop works and mine is the only one who have a problem.

Hello Forums,

I am currently at university with a new Dell laptop with Windows 7 installed. For some reason, my computer is experiencing intermittent wireless disconnections (WPA2-Enterprise) on a very bad day, every 30 seconds and on good days 5-10 minutes. I've tried troubleshooting problems but it only resets the wireless connection and does not solve the problem. I've had my Intel Centrino software updated and have uninstalled McAfee Security problem uninstalled, ticked off the power management saving option of the Intel Centrino.

I've used my computer at home and did not experience any problems using my home's wireless connection (WEP).

I have flushed the DNS Cache per your request from the posting guidelines

Hello,

I've recently begun encountering connectivity problems. Seemingly randomly, the wifi connection becomes limited and webpages/games time out. Whenever I repair the connection it is always at the "reset wi-fi adapter" step that it seems to resolve the issue.

Steps I've taken thus far are:

uncheck the box under my network adapters settings that said "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"show hidden devices under the network adapter device manager and try to uninstall all but my ethernet and wifi connections. aside from these two connections I wanted to keep, there were two bluetooth devices that I don't use/need, two adapters hidden with odd names, and quite a few WAN miniports. I tried uninstalling all of these...some uninstalled, others uninstalled but came back with a restart, and some wouldn't uninstall at all

I'm not even sure if any of this is actually helping my own issue; I simply tried to do some research before reaching out for help myself...and these seemed to be common steps that were suggested from folks on this very forum.

Anyway, below is my ipconfig:

A:Default gateway not available

You'll fix it.

Install latest wireless driver from Ultrabook, SmartPhone, Laptop, Desktop, Server, & Embedded? Intel if not already latest now, update security software to latest version if not already, update router firmware to latest if not already, then use Vistumbler to see which channel is the most open and clear, away from other channels. Set your router radio channel to that.

You could lower the beacon interval some, in the router settings. I keep mine at 50 ms.

RTS Threshold = 2307
Fragmentation = 2306

Microwave ovens and home wireless phones (not smart phone type - landline type) can interfere. Move your router away from those if possible.

Make sure nobody is sitting outside your house in a car trying to do a man-in-the-middle attack (a.k.a. monkey-in-the-middle) on the wireless, lol.

I've seen a few posts like this, but none of the solutions in those posts have worked for me. So here it goes:
For the last week or so, I've been having issues with my ASUS notebook disconnecting from my wireless network or having a limited connection. This would happen maybe twice a day, but eventually I went online and I found that I had an outdated driver for my Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230, and as soon as I downloaded the latest driver, my notebook would disconnect every 5 minutes or so. Running the troubleshooter just keeps returning the same thing; Default gateway not available. It also does this annoying thing where it'll disconnect and reconnect over and over again, so quickly that the network sharing center can't even register it's happening.
I've tried resetting the WINSOCK, IPv4 TCP/IP, and IPv6 TCP/IP stacks, I've tried a clean boot to see if it was a startup program affecting my connections, and I've changed my power settings so they don't turn off my adapter. I even tired booting my computer in safe mode, which didn't help whatsoever because I have no clue what I'm doing.

Hey guys, since I downgraded my laptop down to windows 8.1 (from 10) I've constantly have my network go limited. I've never searched on the internet before simply because I use to be able to just remove my Ethernet cable and reinsert it, but it happened again and the trick doesn't work anymore. P.S going wireless is not an option. I've since researched the problem online and I concluded that my IPV4 address was messed up since it had a 169.xxx.xxx.xxx address, to fix that, I just inserted a random IP address. But after I did that, the laptop says the default gateway is not available. Currently I'm thing about refreshing my computer, but I hope I don't have to as it would take up a lot of time.
