Ping times out when sending > 1472 packets

Q: Ping times out when sending > 1472 packets

Hi, I am troubleshooting a problem with my usb wireless adapter / home wireless network for my fileserver....

This works:

ping WORKS
ping -n 25 -l 1000 WORKS
ping -n 25 -l 1472 WORKS
ping -n 25 -l 1473 TIMES OUT
ping -n 25 -l 2000 TIMES OUT

Any idea what would cause this / what is the problem? How to fix?

When transferring large files, the network name is no longer available... I think this has something to do with it!

Preferred Solution: Ping times out when sending > 1472 packets

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.)


I know this is the opposite of a common problem that people post left and right about on this forum, but my network won't send even one packet. I am using a built-in wireless network on my laptop with windows firewall on 'suggested settings'. Other computers are connected to the internet on the same network in the house. It is a problem with my computer specifically. Here is what I get from an ipconfig/all command:

A:0 packets sent: Receiving packets just peachy, but not sending any (!)

Hi kjseara, the IP address your getting (169.254.x.x) suggests you are unable to connect to your router, you said you had windows firewall running; do you have any antivirus running? If so, try disabling them and then try and connect again. If the problem still persists try disabling your windows firewall and see if you can connect then.

I have this problem, I'm playing "steam" online games like CSS, CS Team Fortress2 and
I have a problem with pings inside the games on servers that are not in my country.

The problem is in the game and also out side when checking the ping through HLSW.
When I send ping through the CMD It fine (80) but inside the game or in the HLSW I get 500 ping.

I contacted my ISP and they said that everything is OK with my line (ADSL).

any idies?

Thanks, Tobi.

Hello, new to the board

This just recently started happening btw. I have a cable modem hooked up to a linksys router supplied by vonage. An Apple Airport wireless router is also hooked up to said router. I also have a rj-45 line hooked up to main pc. Until recently, I didn't have any problems connecting to the internet. I disabled my on board sound card via the BIOS because I was installing a new sound card. After that, I could no longer connect to the internet. The system tray shows that I am connected, but upon further inspection I am only sending, not receiving packets. Thinking it was a software error, I reinstalled Windows. Same problem. I know my router is ok because I have a mac that I use on it all the time via the rj-45 connection. I typed ipconfig /all in the command prompt and received what seemed to be a valid output. I had a valid IP address for my router, subnet mask, default gateway, etc. Thinking my NIC was fried, I tried connecting via a wireless connection. No dice, same thing. Here are my system specs:

AMD Athlon XP 2400+
768 MB RAM
Nvidia Geforce 6800 GT
Soundblaster Live 5.1
Windows 2000 Pro

My NIC is an Nvidia nForce ethernet controller. I also tried reenabling my onboard sound card thinking that was problem, but I still could not receive packets. I can ping my ip, but everytime I ping the router all of the packets are lost. I even tried connecting directly to the modem. Still nothing.

A:Sending not Receiving packets


Read other 1 answers

Hi everyone

Rather strangely although I am connected to the internet, my status tells me that I am sending out no packets. The connection seems fine although it is slow at times.
I have tried reparing the connection, removing the firewall and resetting the router but nothing has solved it.

I run Windows XP and I am using a Belkin wireless adaptor to connect to the router, which is a netgear.

Can anyone help?


A:Recieving packets, but not sending any

You're "connected to the internet" and "The connection seems fine" so you must be sending packets. The adapter has to be sending packets to the router just to get and keep its connection to your WLAN.

What is this "my status"?

I've just set up a wireless network (internet sharing, not files) with a Netgear router. It works brilliantly with my wireless laptop, but I am having trouble with my desktop PC. I bought a Netgear wireless USB adaptor, installed the drivers and it says it's woking fine with a 'Very Good' signal. But i'm not recieving the internet. When I look at the connection's properties, it's 'Sending' packets, but not reciveing any. I've re-installed the device and still no hope. Can anybody tell me how to sort this out? If it helps, I'm running Windows XP on both systems

A:Sending, but not recieving 'packets'

Read other 7 answers

Hi, I tried looking in your forms for an answer for this but to no avail.

I noticed the other day that when I went in the the Local Area Connection screen on my computer that i was sending more packets than receiving. The margin isn't in the millions, for example if there is, 30000 coming in there are about 35000 or so going out. The numbers rarely change and don't go up very much unless I'm surfing the web. I ran an anti virus check and an anti spyware check and came up empty handed.

I have a windows xp pro sp2 OS and a dlink dir655 router thats on a cable connection. My virus scanner is an avg free edition and my spyware scanner is windows defender.

Should I be worried about this at all?

A:Sending more Packets than recieving

Probably perfectly normal. Here's my status. I'm not worried.

This applies to only one computer (there are two in my house). For some strange reason, the internet on my computer just suddenly decided to stop working about two days ago. I checked the wireless network connection and it received absolutely 0 packets out of the 100 or so that were sent. When I clicked on 'support' and then 'details', the DNS Server part was completely blank, and my computer was telling me that my IP address was I tried in the command manager ipconfig /flushdns, but that didn't solve anything. Also, I tried pinging google, but it came up with: 'Ping request could not find host. Please check the name and try again.'. Now, I have no idea what to do, and it is quite strange that this computer is working perfectly fine, whereas the other one is not. I'm running Windows XP, if that helps. Thanks in advance!

A:Sending but not recieving packets

well first thing i would do. I would assign it a static ip address from another computer. go to start, run, type in cmd then type in ipconfig/all on a computer that works. then take that one off the network for a bit then go to the computer that doesn't work. give it a static(manual ip address) todo you should see the networking icon on your toolbar next to your clock. Double click it then goto properties. should have a scholl list go to the bottom that says tcp/ip click it and hit the properties button. there but in the ip address, subnet masks, defualt gateways, and the dns. Then see if you can pull pages the other computer should be already set up to auto configure and get a new ip address. If this doesn't work let me know i got few more tricks up my sleeve just let me know

I recently cleaned up a lot of dead and inactive programs including Windows Media, Realplayer etc. upon restarting I lost my Internet connection and although I am now "connected" the send receive packets are so low I cannot get out to the Internet. Time Warner tells me something in the system configuration is blocking the wireless connection. System restore has been ineffective and TW has done all they can. Running in safe mode did not work to connect, any restore disc are several States away. I am running on a Toshiba Satellite and XP. I am working off the IPad but need the laptop. All other programs seem to work and if I can get someone to get me connected I have 'Hijack This' so any remaining and needed tweaks can be done. Appreciate any help.

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.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:

Hey Guys,

New to here so I'm not sure what kind of info you need from me but I am having some issues with packets sending and recieving.

I had the internet working at one time at a friends house until I moved and started going through a company. I have been using Verizon and I installed some software from them. From then on the internet at anyone else's house did not work.

Now I am staying at a location completely different and I am having more problems with the packets. I think I'm sending like 10 and recieving 7, while the other computer hooked into the router is sending 31,000 and recieving 27,000.

Any Help/Info I can give just let me know. Thanks in advance for any replies on the topic.

A:Problem with Packets Sending/Recieving

If you are connecting directly to a Verizon DSL modem, and you installed their software, you have ADSL installed as your network. Most folks place a router between the modem and their computer so they don't have to install any software.

You might try creating another network connection that is not ADSL. Try it the next time you connect to another person's router.

A:laptop sending but not recieving packets

It's most likely not connected.

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP1-SP2, Vista, etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands:

Alright, so we have about six computers on average all on at the same time, working just fine, last night one of the laptops just, stopped working, saying there is no internet access, With every attempt it doesn't send any information. When I disconnect it from the wireless, then reconnect it, it immediately receives packets but won't send any.

Again, all of the other computers are fine, connect just fine, it's just the one computer that is acting up, I've done everything I know personally to do fix it. Help? Thanks in advance.

A:Computer not sending packets, but will receive them..

receives packets but won't send any.Click to expand...

Maybe a corrupted or misconfigured firewall could cause that (but sending a few and receiving none is the usual symptom).

Maybe an incorrect or corrupted wireless driver could cause that.

But it mostly sounds to me like a defective adapter.

If there are the same results with ethernet that would point to a firewall.

I haven't been able to find any information concerning this and I was hoping someone could help me. I've found posts and information on problems with not receiving packets but not with not sending packets. I'm connecting through a RCA broadband modem with Roadrunner cable service and a 3COM Etherlink NIC. When I start my computer, it never sends packets. I have to pull out the ethernet cable and replug it to reconnect. After a few tries, it'll connect. Occasionally my computer stops sending packets and I disconnect and I'll have to reconnect by unplugging and replugging the cable. What's the problem?

A:Computer receiving packets but not sending

that happened to me twice. my solution has always been to turn off both the modem and my router by disconnecting the power cable and then unpluging all connections. then i turn on my modem....after that is on and has a connection.........start the router....then finally restart of pc and plugging in the ethernet cable into the computer.

or just basically restarting everything

So, for months I have been having lags randomly in games or internet.

I AM SURE THAT THE PROBLEM IS IN THE ROUTER OR ISP (but I hope it's in the router). I only used wireless, never tried to connect router using a cable.
In other places, using different ISP and ROUTER, my internet works fine.

Sometimes downloads starts at 3 kbp/s and there's nothing I can do to change it UNLESS I restart it. If so, it will then come at full speed. This occurs often.

But I'm trying to fix it and to begin i'm testing to ping google in cmd.
I realized that in 20 tries, about 1-2 packets are lost, even setting timeout value to 5 minutes.

How come?

Any ideas?


A:Ping in cmd. Some packets are always lost, no matter how high the timeout value is

Don't understand how you can be sure that this is not a wireless issue.

Try with an ethernet connection to the router. If still the same problem try with a connection directly to the modem.

Hi Everyone, I Am Fixing A Computer For A Friend And I Just Reinstalled Xp Pro On Her Laptop, Well I Just Reinstalled The Wireless Adapter Card In A Pcmia Slot, And Installed The Latest Linksys Drivers Along With The Wireless Utility. It Is A Linksys Wireless-b Notebook Adapter, And It Manages To Connect To My D-link Router Via Dhcp Which Assigns All The Nessasary Addresses (gateway, Ip, Subnet, Dns...etc) But Even After Hours Of Trying To Fix This, It Still Is Only Sending Packets, And Not Receiving Them. Thus leaving me unable to browse or connect to the internet I've Tried Uninstalling And Reinstalling The Drivers And Ive Tried Releaseing And Renewing The Tcp/ip Connection Via Windows Command Menu But This Hasnt Worked Either. I Should Also Note That The Wireless Utility Monitor Says That It Has Good Signal Strength And Link, But Says That "you Are Connected To The Access Point, But The Internet Can Not Be Found" If Anyone Can Provide Me With Any Help Or Suggestions It Would Be Greatly Appreciated, Thank You...

Hello all...I have an HP laptop @ home that is unable to connect to the internet when plugged into my modem. My sister's HP laptop connects just fine.

Whenever I try to connect it tells me that I limited to no connectivity. Whenever I attempt to "repair connection" it tells me that it is unable to renew ip address.

I have tried to run winsock xp fix, manually releasing/renewing IP through command prompts to no avail. I even updated the Nvidia network driver. I am able to send packets but not receive them.

This is driving me absolutely crazy and has been for 2 weeks. Comcast customer support had no idea what to tell me to do. I feel like I've tried everything. The fact that my sisters laptop, also running XP, connects fine really bugs me.

My laptop connects to my office network just fine...just not at home.

****My laptop is set to automatically obtain IP address.****

Any help here is GREATLY appreciated.

I have noticed over the last few days that my LAN indicator (two little blue rectangles) are constantly lighted in my system tray, even though I am NOT actively using the internet or networking with the other computer on my home wireless LAN. I double click on the little lights and activate the "Local Area Connection Status" window. This indicates in the "Activinty" area of the window, that I am constantly and rapidly sending and receiving packets.

This worries me greatly. It did not used to be this way. I have Norton AV 2005 fully installed, and updated and running. I use the Windows firewall, fully activated. (I have problems being able to wirelessly network with my other computer if I use Zone Alarm firewall.) I use a Lynksys WRT54G wireless router. It is fully encrypted. The "Internet activity" light on the router blinks contstantly, as does the "WLAN" light and the light for the port to which this computer is connected via ethernet cable. All of this indicates that I am constantly sending and receiving packets via the internet.

I have fully scanned using NAV, Microsoft anti-spyware, Spybot v1.4 and Ad-Aware SE and I find no problems.

PLEASE help me fix this problem!! Thanks

Hello all,

As of just a few days ago, my wireless connection is constantly sending and receiving packets whether I am surfing the web or not. I cannot pinpoint what is sending information. As this has never happened in the several years I've owned this PC and had this configuration, I'm a bit worried.

Also, my performance has recently taken a sizeable hit - both online and off. I've run various virus scans and AdAware, but fear as though I'm missing something. I've attached the required logs - please help if you can!

I have a Dell PC that is connected to my router via ethernet cable. When I power up my pc it connects to the internet fine and then at random points just loses connection. It is still sending & receiving packets when it is in this state. The only way I can regain connection is to shut down & reboot. It used to be absolutely fine and has only started doing this in the last month & it driving me crazy. I have AVG installed and have tried disabling firewall but still happens. I have a laptop that connects to the internet wirelessly and this is fine and is still connected when my pc isn't.

A:Sending & receiving packets but no internet connection

Interesting, as wired connections are usually more reliable.

Investigate the Control Panel->Power settings and ensure that you do not permit "Allow windows to turn this device off" (apologies, not certain on the wording here).

Also go to Admin Tools->Computer Mgmt->Device Mgmt
expand [+] Network adapters
find yours & double click to get properties->Power Management Tab
clear [ ] Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power

I have a Atheros AR5006EXS Wireless Network Adapter. When I am connected through this the sent packets go crazy. When I am hard wired things go back to normal. I have run all virus, malware, spyware programs and seem to have a clean system.

From reading other forums it appears removing the adapter and reinstalling would help. I have tried uninstalling the adapters from the device manager but this has not helped. I cannot physically remove the adapter because it is intergrated. I have a Fujitsu P1610 / convertible laptop.

Any help would be most appreciated.


A:Sending more packets then receiving - Only through wireless adapter

Welcome to TechGuy Forum.

Which version of Windows are on the computer?
RIGHT click "computer" or "my computer".
Left click "properties".

HOW did you try to remove / uninstall your network device?
Create a system restore point. The steps vary, depending upon which version of Windows you are using.
For XP:
start > programs / all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore .
Create a restore point.

For Vista, you need to go to system protection.

RIGHT click "computer" / "my computer"
Left click "manage"
Maximize the screen.
On the left, left click "device manager".
On the right, look for "network adapters".
If there is a "+" to the left, left click the "+", which will turn into a "-" sign.
The BIOS, basic input output system, contains information about your computer, which is not controlled by Windows.

When the computer starts up, it goes through a POST, power on self test, during which time a notice is often displayed, informing you that you can enter "setup" by pressing a key; F2, F10, Del, Esc, or some other key; or a keystroke combination. You may need to check with the manufacturer of your computer to find out how to do that.

I found several similar threads from 2007 or so, but none of those answers quite worked for me.

We are a business with a wired network and a Verizon wireless router that is rarely used. My MacBook Air was connected to it earlier this morning. I went to connect a Compaq laptop and struggled to get the thing connected. Dynamic IP results in a 169.254.xxx IP address, but when I fed it the IP address that my MacBook pulled earlier, it says it has a "Very Strong" connection. IE loads a cached Google page, but for any web address, it says "can;t browse while offline". I'm sending, but not receiving packets. I haven't used a PC since I worked in tech support 10 years ago, so I'm pretty rusty on Windows support. Thanks for any help!

A:Help, Receiving more packets than Sending in Vista Home

I am repairing/redoing my friends laptop(Dell Inspiron 8600). He had a lot of ad ware, malware, viruses etc. His internet was not working due to the virus badurl.grandstreetinteractive.com. I properly removed it with Ad-Aware 2007, and also fixed/removed some interesting things brought up by HijackThis.

After removing it I ran winsockxpfix, also toyed with ipconfig /renew etc. and it came up empty handed.

Now that it is removed I still cannot access the internet with any program however the Local Area Connection status is sending/recieving and appears to be fine. The TCP/IP is installed on his broadcom 440x, but when I click repair it says the following.

The following steps of the repair operation failed:
Renewing the IP address.

Please contact your network administrator or ISP.

If you have any suggestions or would be kind as to help me step by step that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

This SysWow thing just keeps coming back!...Please Help!
Although I have scanned and cleaned my laptop with Malwarebytes, Eset Security Suite, Eset Online Scanner, & Super Antispyware Pro, it seems that I just can't get rid of it!  SysWow64\dllhost.exe is scanning the ports on my system and trying to reach ip address, .80, & .213, (Malwarebytes is blocking the attempts thank goodness). Each time it tries to send a packet it comes up as either Domain F08080.com or Cd5c5c.com with the port number changing everytime.  I've also noticed that is creates a boatload of temp files in the c:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp directory. this happens while the dllhost.exe *32 process is running, many times there are multiple copies running at the same time. It seems to slow down when I end the process.
