Trouble going from ethernet to wireless...

Question: Trouble going from ethernet to wireless...

I'm running a Gateway DX4720-03 (manual: https://www.manualowl.com/m/Gateway%.../Manual/148002) with Windows 7 HP 64-bit and have a Nvidia GeForce 7100/nForce 630i card and a Linksys WRT 320N router. My problem is that I always thought that this desktop computer was wirelessly connected to the internet, but I just found out that it was connected via an ethernet cable. At the moment everything is working just fine (portable computer wirelessly synched with desktop, guests can easily access my wifi, no problems with the internet, etc), except when I try to set up my wifi camera as an access point and have the computer recognize it. It was at this point, after much, much research and fiddling, I discovered that my network was set up as a Local Area Connection using an ethernet cable. In fact, the router was never listed in Network (under Network Infrastructure) until I just now selected "Add a wireless device." But, when going to Device Manager, Network adapters has MS Teredo Tunneling Adapter and NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet and under Network Infrastructure Devices there is MS Wireless Router Module...the Linksys router doesn't show up here even though I just added it. From all this manipulation, it should be obvious that although I can very handily tweak my browser (Firefox), maintain a clean computer, solve various computer related problems - with help from the various forums, I am truly at a loss when it comes to networking and wireless set up.

So, what I need to do is get my computer to work wirelessly (and to recognize other access points) without disrupting an apparently well working computer. My gut tells me that I have to disconnect the ethernet cable from the computer in order for the router to be recognized. Furthermore, if this is correct, will the computer then automatically recognize my router and other access points that are close by in the neighborhood...or must I do more to make this connection work?

Okay, as of yesterday I began having trouble connecting to our internet (Cable internet). On my desktop I use a usb wireless adapter normally, however I began having issues staying connected to the internet. It would stay connected to the internet for a few minutes or even longer or even less, disconnect, then immediately reconnect again on its own. I then tried to use an ethernet cord; same thing happened. The other computers in the house work just fine by wireless, etc, so I'm kinda narrowed it down to my desktop. I've been looking up ways to fix it, but not many people or none at all (from my searches) really have the same problem as me. So, I honestly have no idea what to do to try and fix it. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium and I have a HP desktop. I would GREATLY appreciate any and all help. Thanks!

I am trying to get a wireless ethernet bridge WET54G to bridge two networks. It's working in a rudimentary way, but I am having trouble getting dynamic IP on both sides of the bridge.

At present, the config is ...

WAN -> wired router (DHCP server) "X" -> wireless switch "Y" -> { wireless connection } -> WET54G -> wired switch "Z"

I can readily communicate to the WET54G and to "Z" from clients connected to "X", any time, so the basic transmission/reception is working.

However, I have failed utterly in all configurations to get clients that connect to switch "Z" to receive IP addresses from the DHCP server. If I can't get this to work then the WET54G is going to be returned, since my need is to connect a locked-down corporate laptop to "Z", and it requires dynamic IP.

(I should clarify that "Y" and "Z" are actually both routers, but with DHCP disabled and connected only via LAN ports, so equivalent to switch. I should also say that I can connect clients to "Z" using static IP, and things work OK. But that doesn't meet my need.)

Can anyone suggest a config that would work?

Alternatively, if someone can tell me for sure that this *doesn't* work with the WET54G, that would be helpful. In that second case, if there *is* a device that will work, I'd love to know about it (e.g. will it work with a modded WRT54GL?).

White Computer (Custom)


Well, I have two computers. I need to return one to my uncle tho. But my computer which I will refer to as the white one because it has a white case, will not connect to internet on its own unless connected by a crossover cable to my uncle's computer which i will refer to as the black one, because of its black case.
The black one works fine and can connect to the internet through a USB connection, but i Cannot get it to connect with an ethernet connection only. I tried the Comcast CD's they give out that are supposed to configure it for you but to no avail.
The white one cannot connect using either one USB or Ethernet and thats obviously the big problem since it will be my only computer.

I am not totallly incompetent about computers but I am no expert nor am I close to being one so use lamence terms please, I will check this post daily. Anyone who can help will probably need more info than I provided so just ask for it, and I will supply it within 24 hours most likely less. please keep up with me on this i really would like to crack this.
In Summary, just an internet connection problem if any more information is required just ask I will respond with it promptly. Thanks for any help.

Question: Ethernet trouble

Alright, I need some serious help. I just got to college, and I discovered that the dorm rooms have internet, but they only have Ethernet jacks, they don’t have wireless connection. Next, I discovered that my computer isn’t recognizing the Ethernet cable being plugged into it, although THERE ARE LIGHTS BLINKING (a green and orange light) on the computer port. So…I thought it might be the Ethernet cord, but I tried 3 different cords with the same result. Next, I thought it might be the wall jack, but the kid in the room next to mine’s internet jack works for him, but not for me (he has the exact same laptop I have).
Side note: when I go to manage network connections, it says Local Area Connection, then right under it, it says Network Cable Unplugged. HOWEVER, every 2 seconds (I timed it), it switches to saying Enabled for less than half a second, before switching back to saying Network Cable Unplugged. I have a feeling this is either a big clue to fixing my problem, or a big clue to showing that my computer is way messed up.
So, I decided there must be something wrong either with the port in my computer (Please, no) or with the driver in my computer. I tried uninstalling the driver then restarting my computer, but still had the same unplugged/enabled thing happen, so I don’t know what’s wrong, but I would love if you could help me.

Hi! So I'm not at all good with computers but recently I got an Ethernet plug and wanted use it with my mac. I connected the plug without using an adaptor and the Ethernet seems to connect just fine, however, I can't use google chrome or safari as every time I try to search it says something like "can't access this website network not secure." I tried fixing the privacy settings on my mac to be more lenient but it still doesn't help. If I buy an adaptor and then plug it in would it allow me to connect. Or is this a totally different kind of problem?

I am currently trying to fix a Toshiba Laptop with one problem. It's ethernet driver, Marvell Yukon, began to disfunction. It wouldn't even read the ethernet cord when plugged in.

I checked the cord, it was fine. I tested the port with a desktop, the desktop went online perfectly fine.

I uninstalled and re-intalled the Marvell Yukon adapter. It read the ethernet cord this time, but it refused to connect to the IP address claiming "little to no connectivity" So I decided to download a new driver. I downloaded Realtek. I intalled the driver via New Hardware wizard only for it to say "Device cannot Start" (Code 10).

I went through the never-solved-anything troubleshooter that didn't solve a thing . It told me to use Windows Update. I did, but this time, the update was not only ineffective, but it also forced the wireless network drive to malfunction as well...

Any helpful advice? T_T

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006PYGWG6

I don't know much about it but I was concerned because the Router Mode says 'cable connection only' and I'm not sure the connection is cable (is it ADSL?). Will I need anything else like a modem?

I also did ping test and it did show some sort of reply. (if you need those details let me know)

So, what do you think, can something be done?????

Answer:Ethernet Card Trouble

If it's a known working cable and a known working LAN port on the router or modem or whatever at the other end and your ethernet LED does not light then the NIC is bad. Unless it is turned off as a power saving option (some laptops do this when on battery).

EDIT: Just remembered--one other person discovered that his NIC had been mysteriously disabled in the BIOS. So, check the BIOS to make sure the NIC is enabled.

Here are things I have tried:
1.  Multiple network cables
2.  Multiple ports on router and direct to ATT gateway.
3.  Updated driver from Realtek, then rolledback driver
4.  Plugged in ethernet usb dongle into usb port and it worked , using same source cable
5.  Also tried to change to half duplex in driver properties
5.  Rebooted several times
 
Any suggestions?   Is there a way to know for sure if it is bad, I am assuming it is baked into motherboard so not replaceable.

I am working with a Dell laptop N5030 Win 7, this problem just started recently and is driving me nuts.

It will hook up to my WiFi just fine but not the internet. 3 other computers on the same network can access the internet. I did try downloading an updated driver from Dell off another computer via thumb drive with no luck. It worked fine a week before, never any trouble. Did all the normal steps, Clean and Defrag, ran a Virus Scan, tried to restore to an earlier date but would not restore.

If I go into Device Manager, it shows Network Connections just fine. Below that is Other Devices with Ethernet Controller under that with a yellow eclamation point. If I click on it, it says device is not installed.

I tried doing a ping test in command prompt, no luck, tried resetting the TCP/IP but tells me I need to switch to administrator, there is only one user. I went into Internet Options and it is set for Broadband connections but will not allow me to make any changes.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

So I have a PCI ethernet card I have never used before, and a new motherboard with an onboard ethernet port, and neither seem to bne working.

In device manager they look fine, and in the system tray I see two little computers with red x's through them and when I hover the pointer is says "network cable unplugged" or something to that effect, which is quite strange as I have my new router plugged in. Also a light should go on on the router indicated which port is attached to the pc once the ethernet cable is inserted, but this does not happen.

And of course the router does not work.

Any ideas?

Answer:Ethernet card trouble

Did you install the motherboard drivers?
Make sure the ethernet cable is attached to the modem, in the proper conneccotr, I say this because you may have it connected to where the modem should connect, its unlikly but possible still. In control panel under network connections, make sure the incomming connectiopn enabled under properties. Also try connecting without router.

With router attached, try these commands through cmd

ping google.com

if it can ping a site then for some reason its not showing up as connected but actualy is connected.

also

ipconfig/all

ipconfig/release
ipconfig/renew

also, take the PCI ethernet card out and just use onbaord its faster, since its already connected to motherboard. It prolly doesn't help that you have it in.

Hello.

Got myself a problem with my ethernet card on my desktop computer. One day, when I turned it on, I could not access the internet. Upon investigation, I discovered that my ethernet card was not listed in the Device Manager. When I reinstalled the drivers and restarted the computer, I checked the Device Manager and found that my ethernet card was listed under "Unknown" and it had a yellow exclamation point on it. The error code was 31, saying that Windows could not load the correct drivers.

This is what I have done thus far with no positive results:
1.) Entered safe mode, removed the drivers from the driver folder in windows/system32.
2.) Installed a new ethernet card but the same problem happened = ethernet card listed under Unknown and the same error code.
3.) Scanned for viruses and spyware = clean.

Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem could be? Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Hope someone can help since i'm at a loss. bought the $200 PC for my Dad, upgraded it some and used the built-in ethernet port to update it (that's important). dad didn't have dsl at the time, so disabeled in in BIOS. he used the dialup fine for months, then i got him dsl.... this is where it gets weird.
the adapter coming up in "network adapters" is a sis 900-based fast ethernet item. he can connect to the internet (browse) and i can send him files on msn messenger and HE can take over MY computer with remote desktop and with remote assistance, but I cannot access HIS with remote desktop or remote assistance- also his connection seems slow. i have tried uninstalling the 900-based thing but it always reinstalls. i initially turned back on the LAN device in BIOS, and when it still didn't work i reset the BIOS to default settings...which still did not work. i have manually installed the (IBM) 10/100 ethernet card with add hardware wizard, but it will not start because of a (code 10) error.

does anyone have any idea what this 900-based thing is, and what might have happened to keep the 10/100 device from reinstalling/starting? could something have become "locked" in some way when i turned off the LAN previously, and what would i have to clear (registry??, etc.) to fix it?? it is just frustrating that it worked before and now won't.
thanks for any help, and sorry if this is in the wrong place.

It is your integrated Fast Ethernet. Its just one of many manufacturers out there making them.

what might have happened to keep the 10/100 device from reinstalling/startingClick to expand...


If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string appears as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

With this being shown I suggest you get the exact make and model of your IBM nic you want to install and make sure you have the right drivers already downloaded.

it is just frustrating that it worked before and now won't.Click to expand...

You said earlier he connects and web browses so your Ethernet adapter IS working I don't think adding a new one will change anything... again my suggestion is look at the firewall/router stuff.

Alright so I purchased the Asus P5N-D yesterday, and everything is up and running nicely. However, I can't get my computer to see my router.

When I plug in my ethernet cable I get the lights responding from the motherboard. My router recognizes that a computer has plugged into it, and so does my computer. But, when I go to my network, my computer is the only one recognized and the router is nowhere to be seen.

I put in the Asus driver disc, which has no mention of network drivers but only the nForce 7 chipset drivers which I figured would include the netword adapter, and installed everything to no avail. So I used my tablet that I'm currently on to download NVIDIA's drivers for the 750i chipset, and installed these. I installed the bus drivers and ethernet drivers, and still, I cannot see the router.

When I open up a command prompt and try pinging my router's IP I get nothing. However, when I turn off the router my computer recognizes that it has lost connection and I get the X through my internet connectivity. When I have it plugged in, it only has local access.

I've tried assigning my computer a specific IP address that I know works with my router and isn't being used, and that doesn\t work, nor does it automatically obtain an IP address.

Also, I installed XP as well (I was originally trying on Vista) and got the necessary drivers, and still no luck. And yet the computer recognizes my NVIDIA network adapter and says that it's workin... Read more

In the device manager, find your network card and double click on it. Go to the drivers tab and click uninstall. After it's finished, install the most recent drivers again and see if that works.

Also, make sure that the drivers you're downloading are for the correct hardware and correct operating system.

Hey all, I'm having trouble connecting to the internet on my desktop. I had not used it for a couple months and had moved since I last used (at which time it was working fine). I know it's not the cable / modem / router, because I tested all of those on another computer. I'm not great with networks, but I saw requests in similar threads to post the results of IPCONFIG /ALL, so here goes:

I live in a newly constructed home that was wired with ethernet cables throughout. The current internet setup is: ISP modem to wireless router (ASUS RT-AC68U) with ethernet cables running from the router to a "board" (I'm not sure what it is properly called) that connects to 8 ethernet cables that run throughout the house to various rooms. Most of our device run on WIFI (which works perfectly fine), so there are only a couple connections from the router to the board. Recently, I wanted to hook up a desktop computer (which doesn't have WIFI) via ethernet in one of the rooms, but ran into problems. I will try to describe the scenario as best and clearly as I can:

I will call the room that is having problems "Room A". I have been trying to connect using two computers. One is the above-mentioned desktop ("Desktop") and the other is a laptop ("Laptop") that I've used for diagnostic purposes. The Desktop runs Windows 7 Pro and the Laptop Windows 7 Ultimate.

In Room A, I connect the Desktop to the wall ethernet connection, which is wired through the house as described above (so I use two movable ethernet cables in total: one from router to board, one from wall socket to computer). The desktop does not get an internet connection, instead it has the yellow exclamation marker over the icon. If I then try the Laptop in Room A with the same cable setup, I connect to the internet just fine (I am not using wifi for these tests). So something s... Read more

Answer:Trouble with house-wired ethernet in some rooms, but not others

Nevermind, I figured out the solution:

I opened up the wall plate to inspect the ethernet cable. At the RJ45 jack I noticed that one cable, the white/green one, was not pushed all the way to the bottom, but kind of half way. So I pushed it down all the way, and voila there is an internet connection to the Desktop!

Kind of weird considering that the Laptop could still connect.

I am having a heck of a time. I have installed Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit and the ASUS P5QC mobo I have came with an unsigned 64 bit Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller
driver.

I called ASUS tech support and talked to them and as of this time, they have only a beta version of the 64 bit signed driver. Vista is not accepting the driver and is considering it as unsigned, so I am left without a computer that can connect to the net.

I have searched hi and low all over the internet to see if I could buy a wired ethernet adapter which has a 64 bit signed driver, but all of the ethernet cards I have been able to find are only compatible with the 32 bit version of Vista or they only have unsigned drivers for their ethernet cards. This is really frustrating!

Does anyone know here WHO (what manufacturer, make, model) of a wired ethernet adapter card 10/100 or 10/1000/1000 (that does not cost a fortune - is retail version, not industrial or commercial)
I might be able to purchase that has the appropriate signed drivers - or

Hi, I have a T40 (2373-19U) running XP Pro SP2, the LAN adapters are Intel PRO/100 VE (driver version 8.0.47.0) and PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B (driver version 1.2.5.37). I also have a Belkin F5D8053 USB network adapter (my ultimate goal is to get that working and switch my network to WPA/WPA2). My router is an Airport Extreme, to which an iMac is already successfully connected, currently set up with Transitional WEP security. My PC runs Bitdefender antivirus software. The Airport is connected to a cable modem. My problem is that I can't connect to the internet through the network (not by ethernet cable connected directly to router, or by wireless). I CAN access the internet if I bypass the router and plug the ethernet cable directly into the cable modem. I can get Network Connections to see available wireless networks, and I can even get my built-in wireless card to "connect" although it isn't really connected. When I've got the ethernet cable connected, I have "limited or no connectivity." If I go into the Properties of the wired connection, all the checkboxes in General are checked, and IEEE 802.1x auth is enabled with EAP type 'smart card or other.' I seemed to have the same problems even if I switched the router security to None. I must have messed up my settings trying to get this to work. Any thoughts from the experts? What should I check?

I'll try and give as much info as possible to reduce the amount of unnecessary questions and wasted time. I am extremely frustrated and at the point of pulling out my hair.

I used to have my windows XP Home Service Pack 3 desktop connected to my Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows 7 via a crossover ethernet cable. This is how I accessed the internet on my desktop. Setting this up was no problem.

Recently, I formatted and reinstalled Windows XP on the desktop (hadn't been done in a few years, clogged, slow, needed to be done). Since then, I've tried to do the same connection I had before with a crossover ethernet cable from my laptop to my desktop. No luck.

No settings on my laptop have changed since the format & reinstall of windows XP on my desktop.

I have checked all the settings on both my laptop and desktop, including file sharing, windows firewall (on, off, exceptions allowed), file folder sharing, network discovery, etc. All except for firewall are set to on. Firewall is set to allow exceptions, although I tried playing around with it off as well. I tried deleting and recreating the network bridge between the LAN and Wireless network multiple times to no avail.

When you reinstalled XP Home on the desktop, did you follow by reinstalling the manufacturer's drivers? If not, you may need to visit your manufacturer's website and download the drivers using another PC to a detachable USB drive attached to that PC. Then you can attach that drive to your ethernetless PC to install the drivers. Chipset driver is supposed to be the first one to install, but there should be a network driver there too...

Maybe this would get your connection going...

I have just purchased a Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter, Model No. WMP54GS, with the intention of setting it up on a desktop running Windows XP Pro. I want to integrate it into my existing wireless network. Currently, the setup is a Motorola Wireless Access Point Model No. WA840G connected to a Linksys Wired Router, which in turn connects to the net. I currently have two machines, both laptops, that work with this wireless setup with no problem. The third machine, the desktop, has been connecting directly to the Linksys Wired Router, and I now want to switch it over to wireless.

So I've put the Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter into the desktop, installed the driver, and the problem is that it only finds my Wireless Network half the time, and when it does, it says 'Connected' but 'No Signal'. Always. Not even 'Low'. Just 'No Signal'. I can't even connect to the router or the wireless access point.

FYI, I don't currently use any kind of encryption with my wireless access point, so that is a non-factor.

Any advice?

I need to know if this can be done. The situation:
Desktop has a integrated 10/100/1000 ethernet port.
-Apartment the owner lives in has Free Wifi for all residents.
-Desktop has no room for wireless card, is under warranty, and owner doesn't want to crack the case.


Is there a device that can be used to plug into the Ethernet - to a "hub" of sorts, to transmit wirelessly to get the free Wifi signal? (so internet browsing is possible upon this particular PC without voiding warrenty or paying for seperate net...)


if so... link examples or provide exact names. I am getting mixed results with Google.

I know some USB wireless devices are available for this - but those can get pricey, and the owners don't really have any open USB (so a hub would be needed on top of it... which is more money and probably more expensive in the long run.)

Answer:Ethernet to Wireless...

USB wi-fi would be the easiest and cheapest solution. Otherwise you would have to run an ethernet cable from your computer to the source router or a router picking up the signal - which doesn't sound like an option either.

Do you really not have ANY free USB ports?

If I am going to use ethernet for an extended time I remove an external wireless adapter or switch an integrated wireless off. But that's to extend the life of the unused component and to save the battery if on battery. If you are using a PCI wireless card with the desktop then disabling it is probably the best you can do. But that is not going to impact your ethernet usage, so it is really your choice.

Please show the following for when you have an ethernet connection and for when it has dropped ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

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

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

You might get a better response by posting this thread in the Networking forum!If I understand you correctly your set up should allow you to Network in the way you want. You'll need to make sure the Desktop and Laptop are connected to the same Network - i.e they are on the same named network. Run the Network wizard on your desktop and note the exact names you enter, then select 'make disk' option at the end and place the disk (could be a USB Stick) in the Laptop and run the file created by the Desktop. You will have needed to select File/Printer Sharing when you first ran the Wizard.If you go 'Show all connections' and right click on the LAN card you can select 'Properties' - this tells you the protocols you have active (Client for MS Networking, File/Printer Sharing, TCP/IP).Finally check which files you have set for 'sharing'. Never share a whole drive on a WiFi network!Good luck!

Is there such a thing as a 5 Ghz Ethernet card, or is just 5 Ghz wireless?

Answer:Ethernet vs. wireless

No - 2.4/5 GHZ refer to the wireless frequency.

Ethernet comes in two speeds mostly - older 100 Mb/s (100 megabits) or more modern 1000 Mb/s (1 Gigabit). Of course, these are usually much faster than internet speeds even for slower 100 Mb/s unless you have amazingly fast broadband.

I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 4 port wireless broadband router with 2 x wireless laptops that can see each other and share files fine. I also have a PC which is hardwired to the router. All 3 machines have an IP address from the range I configured and all 3 machines can access the internet. The problem I'm having is that my hardwired PC cannot see the workgroup I have set up so therefore it can't see the 2 wireless laptops. The 2 wireless laptops can see the hardwired PC but cannot connect to it to view the shared folders.

I have switched all firewalls off, changed lots of config in the router, reset it to default, rebuilt my hardwired PC, pulled out some hair, changed network settings all over the place but just cannot get the hardwired PC to see the workgroup.

Any suggestions anyone ! !
 

Answer:! ! ! ! ! Ethernet Can't See Wireless ! ! ! ! !

Well, as long as all three are getting DHCP addresses from the same network, then the router isn't to blame, so, get it configured and leave it alone.

You say you've setup a workgroup for the laptops. That desktop machine also needs to be a part of that same workgroup. Then, you need to have the same username and password combination on the three machines, and then the desktop should be able to share files with the laptops.

And you definitely want the firewalls disabled until you get things working.

My local vet's PC uses the ethernet port to connect to Vetcomm through a router. Until now, normal internet access has been through dial-up. He now has broadband. I fitted a wireless USB adaptor which installed OK, but won't connect to his new BT router - it shows as 'disabled' and won't let me change to enabled.
I'm sure it's a settings issue, but never had to deal with a similar situation to this.
Grateful for any thoughts.

Answer:Ethernet OK, but no wireless

I believe that you have to enter the configuration pages of the Home Hub to enable the wireless.
This article should guide you through it.

I am with o2 and use their wireless router. I have used it wirelessly for the last three years because it was too far away from my computer. I use Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and the internet connection strength at the bottom of the screen shows up to three bars (normally only two).
This morning I managed to connect to the router using a 5 metre ethernet cable and the strength has gone up to four bars.
I can't see the difference. A speed test shows the same speeds 2.6 down 0.7 up.
Would I be just as well off being wireless? What difference does the strength from two bars to four bars make?
I would appreciate your comments please.

Hello,

I have a PC with wireless connection to the Internet (PCI wireless card). Is it somehow possible to use the Ethernet port (NIC) to PROVIDE network access to a device? (such as a D-Link internet camera with ethernet connection).

Thanks for your help!

Answer:One wireless, one Ethernet, can I use both?

Using Client OS (I.e. Not a real server like Windows 2008) you cannot use two Network Cards (does not matter wire or wireless) that are connected to the same Network (I.e. same Wireless Router/switch etc.).

You can use both only if they are configured to two subnets (Two independent Networks).

My BT HomeHub is in the same room as my PC and I have a wireless card.
I can also connect my PC to he hub using an ethernet cable. Which is preferable, also would one allow faster downloads over theother.

Answer:Ethernet Vs Wireless

A wired ethernet connection will always be more reliable than a wireless connection. In terms of speed, this is likely to be most significant in a Local Area Network where files are transferred between computers.
As far as the internet is concerned, unless you have a broadband connection of about 50Mbps, your connection from the computer to the router will always be much faster than your download internet connection, so wired or wireless makes little difference. Having said that, if you are running more than one computer "wirelessly", the available bandwidth is shared by them, unlike wired connections where each will have the full speed of the router's network switch, usually 100Mbps.

Answer:set top box wireless and ethernet?

Try getting a 4 port Wireless Cable Router, the sort that gets its input using an ethernet cable (not the more common ADSL Modem Router type)By plugging your existing ethernet cable from the Virgin box into the routers input WAN port then connecting to your desktop from one of the routers output LAN ports using another ethernet patch cable (routers usually come with at least one in the box) after that all you may need do is access the router setup page and turn on the wireless part but the manual will explain how to Cheers HC

Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

So I just bought myself a new laptop (hp dv6910us) and I'm enjoying it thoroughly but I have a very basic question about what to use in terms of internet. In my apartment, I can easily connect to the internet through my ethernet connection or through the wireless. Both are smooth, fast connections. In terms of increasing the lifespan and battery-life of the computer, should I stick primarily to connecting through the ethernet or through my wireless connection? I have an Atheros AR5007 802.11 b/g WiFi adaptor and my processor is an AMD Turion X-2 TL-60 2Ghz with 3.00GB RAM. Running windows vista 32 Bit. It's a general question, not a pressing issue so answer at your leisure. Thanks.

Answer:Ethernet and Wireless

Your internet speed is determined by your provider and the package you have, it is irrelevant how fast your connection to router is as long as it is at least a little faster than speed to the provider. So you can not change the internet speed above what provider gives you.

Is there such a thing as a 5 Ghz Ethernet card, or is just 5 Ghz wireless?

Answer:Ethernet vs. wireless

No - 2.4/5 GHZ refer to the wireless frequency.

Ethernet comes in two speeds mostly - older 100 Mb/s (100 megabits) or more modern 1000 Mb/s (1 Gigabit). Of course, these are usually much faster than internet speeds even for slower 100 Mb/s unless you have amazingly fast broadband.

Here's something that is causing massive loss of hair.....

My PC is connected to my router with a wireless card. I also connect my PS2 to my PC using an ethernet connection (the ps2 is "modified" and I use this connection to play music and video thru the ps2 to the TV).

Everything works fine with one exception. It seems like the wireless is not getting a DNS. To obtain one, I have to disable the ethernet card, connect to my AP, then enable the card. If I lose my connect with the AP (which happens sometimes, it's on the other side of the house and the signal is a little weak), then when it reconnects I have to do the whole disable/enable thing.

It's not a huge deal, but I do like my stuff to work properly and usually things like this are not problem for me, but this one really has me wondering. Anyone have any ideas?

Here's my ipconfig /all if that helps. What's odd is the ipconfig is *exactly* the same when I can connect and when I can't. So maybe it's not a DNS issue, but something else. But I am unable to connect to any web sites until I disable and re-enable the ethernet card.

That probably means that they want to restrict usage to one computer per connection and do not want wireless networks set up. So, please check with the IT department before doing anything, as it's not very hard for them to detect violations.

On the assumption that you will not attempt this unless it falls within the rules, you can use a Wireless Access Point (WAP). Use encryption, preferably WPA2-PSK, AES, but at least WPA-PSK, TKIP. Use a passphrase that cannot be guessed and does not include dictionary words.

I have just gone on to Sky broadband today and I am quite ignorant on wireless connections.I have got it up and running using the ethernet connection.As I am running my PC on a fairly long phone extension(24feet),I wondered if I would gain speed by putting my router next to the master phone point at the other end of the room and using my wireless adaptor to make the "jump".

Answer:Ethernet or Wireless connection

I don't see how that would gain any speed whatsoever, even from a file sharing viewpoint (where the massive speed advantage of 10/100 or Gigabit Ethernet is obviously preferred to wi-fi). A good quality phone extension will suffer virtually no loss whatsoever, and certainly not enough to affect an average internet connection. I would happily take a long phone extension if it allows convenient Cat5 networking. A good 802.11g network will achieve c.15-30Mbits per sec, the Ethernet standards are self-explanatory, and even an ADSL Max internet service offers c.6-7Mbits at its absolute best. That's if you live next door to the exchange an happen to be the only person using it. So wi-fi versus Ethernet is not an arguement worth thinking about purely from a connection speed viewpoint. Therefore avoiding the extension will not have any gain.

I network an XP box and a 98 box via wired Ethernet. Currently, a DSL connection is shared via a Zoom modem with a built-in router (5651_X4_2_2) connected to a Linksys switch (EtherFast 10/100 5-Port Workgroup Switch EZXS55W).

Just bought a laptop with a wireless card installed and want to share Internet connection and files wirelessly as already done via wired Ethenet (between XP box and a 98 box). Laptop features VISTA Home Premium.

Instead of connecting the Laptop to the switch via a patch cable (to share DSL and files), thought maybe there's a type of Ethernet to wireless adapter product that simply plugs into a port on the switch that would in turn transfer a wireless signal to the laptop. Or not?

There's nothing wrong with your friend's configuration. One thing that I'd be thinking about, is the fast that you're going down two floors with the wireless signal. You might want to orient the antennas in a horizontal attitude to get more signal up and down, since the normal radiated pattern is like a bow-tie out the sides of a vertical antenna.

1) Bought a new wireless router (it's a Corega CG-WLBARGNH router...I live in Japan).
2) Set it up fine with another laptop. On that laptop, both ethernet and wireless work great. On my HP Pavillion dv 1000 with Intel PRO/Wireless 2200bg...ethernet connects great, but wireless will not connect. Note the following:
a) The wireless router shows up fine on my list of available connections.
b) When I click to connect to the network, my computer just endlessly tries to connect..."waiting for network" even though the router is in the same room with me and showing full strength on my list of available networks.
c) I am able to connect to other wireless connections fine (though they happen to be my neighbors' unsecured networks)
d) I have updated my driver (as well as rolled it back). I have checked security settings multiple times (the router company suggested this). I have even fiddled with settings I probably shouldn't have (with the configuration of my driver or TCP/IP settings)

When I bring my laptop home, I plug in a Cat5 cable and boot it up. Windows 7 then hooks up to my router with both the cable and via wireless. When I then transfer files from it, they transfer at the lower wireless speeds. If I disable the wireless on the laptop, the transfer speed increases to Cat5 levels.

Is there some way to get it to use the wired connection instead of the wireless connection without having to disable the wireless adapter in Device Manager (which means I have to re-enable it when I take the laptop on the road again)?

Answer:Wireless vs Cat5 ethernet

When the eithernet cable is plugged in it takes over the wireless connection and only the wired connection is used. In other words it should be happening automatically as soon as you plug in the cable.

Quite a few have tested this including myself so unless your system is somehow different than everyone else's I can't imagine why you would be having this problem.

What would be my best bet for a Wireless Ethernet Bridge? Where I can connect it to a wireless network then connect multiple wired clients up. I've purchased wireless bridges before but I understand that many Access Point/Routers can now be configured to act as a bridge? Many dedicated bridges are pretty pricey so this seems like a good route. The bridge will need to be fairly robust however as a lot of traffic will flow over it, so I'd like to hear from anyone who has successfully used a bridge like this with a fair amount of traffic.

I'm looking to basically connect two houses together onto one large network via a wireless bridge. Currently I have a client station connected to the other house and that client then has ICS running. I've had some success bridging the wireless and wired adapters to try to create more of a true bridge and allow 2-way regular network traffic but that disables the wireless controls on the wireless adapter. I would like a simpler hardware solution anyway.

Modem router, but I'm also considering connecting another Panasonic tv downstairs and maybe in the near future a ps 4, my belkin router doesn't offer the fastest wireless speed and I'm sure coverage isn't brilliant by today's routers, so I'm considering upgrading to at least a n750 spec modem router, but is it worth spending a bit more and going for 802.11ac spec? My main reason for considering this is better wireless range rather than speed. My other question is what's the difference between wireless adaptors and bridges? Well what are bridges lol basically I want the best coverage I can get and good speed would be nice but if 802.11ac is overkill then please do tell me lol thanks people for the kind help, I hope I can return the help at some point

Answer:Wireless Ethernet adaptors

Forgot to say, can anyone recommend an adaptor that'd fully make use of whatever spec wifi I go for, ie are their any 802.11ac adaptors available or one that'll fully use the best of the current dual band 802.11n routers
