No Internet Connection After Boot UP or Wake Up

Question: No Internet Connection After Boot UP or Wake Up

I don't have an internet connection after boot up or after I wake the system up from sleep. This happens just about everytime, the troubleshooter have no problem fixing it every time. There is nothing wrong with the network as I still get a dial tone on the telephone.

I apologize for asking this question yet again, because I know a lot of people have had the same issue before. I made this account specifically to ask for help.

After my computer wakes up from sleep mode it takes 2-5 minutes for it to successfully connect to the a wireless internet connection. However, when it's a fresh boot-up (whether after a shutdown or restart) it connects automatically. I know it's not my router because it happens wherever I am, not just at home (i.e. college campus, friends' houses, etc.). I have reinstalled the drivers for my computer (Intel R Wifi Link 1000 BGN), deleted and rediscovered all of the wireless profiles, and played around with permissions for the Wlansvc file (someone said it fixed their problem?). I'm still getting the delay. I'm at a loss and would really like the issue to be resolved.

I've been dealing with this since Aug. 2011 and I've only had the laptop since July 2011. If anyone has any suggestions, they're much appreciated, and if you need additional information I'll supply what I can.

Answer:Windows 7 64bit, delayed connection to wireless internet upon wake-up?

I actually had the same problem on my HP laptop at home. I solved it by updating wireless driver to newer version, but I see you've done this.

I recommend you try different driver versions, even if they are slightly older. Also check windows optional updates to see what it offers.

You can also take a look at your power options and turn off the ability for the OS to put the device to sleep. Also check device manager and look for the WLAN adapter. There should be power options there.

I am on Cablevision using Windows 7. I have not had a problem with me LAN set up until now, however, just recently I got a new router (other than that, nothing has changed, and I can connect wireless to the router. Whenever the computer is left alone for a while and then I come back to it, the internet connection is null. The icon in the system tray auto switches sporadically from exclamation point to working, however in both cases there is not internet connection. Only after 5 minutes to as much as 20 minutes does the internet finally work. Once in a while, it will kick out while I am using it, but not too much at all. Mainly it only has problems "waking up" after it's been left alone.

Here's my setup: Modem > Router > Switch > Desktop. Yes, I've tried restarting all of them, removing the router altogether, and used different Ethernet cables, to no avail. Also, the switch houses LAN connections to my Xbox 360 and PS3, which both work perfectly connecting to the net.

Judging this evidence, I can only assume that Windows 7 and/or motherboard is at fault. What can I do to fix this? Is this a rare occurrence?

I've just "upgraded" from windows 7 yesterday. I note that I don't have an Internet connection when I initially switch on. Restarting resolves this problem. None of the suggestions on this microsoft page work https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...&v4h=winxptab1

I've never hitherto had any problems with my Internet connection on Windows 7.

In addition, yesterday the start button, notifications, cortana were all non-responsive for a lot of the time. Somebody on facebook suggested I switch off "superfetch". I did, and thus far I haven't experienced any further problems with the start menu etc. However, booting up seems to have slowed down after switching off superfetch, even though my OS is on an SSD. And I have to boot up twice before I have an Internet connection! OK, my PC is 5 years old, but it cost over ?1400 minus the monitor at the time, and it has 16Gb of RAM. Why on earth is it necessary to turn off this "superfetch"?

At this point I think I'll need to go back onto windows 7 unless anyone can suggest any solutions?

Whenever i bout up and get into Vista the two computers at the bottom right hand corner in the tray there is a blue orb that tells you ithat your connected to the internet.

Lately when i boot up and enter vista the blue orb wont be in the tray and im no longer able to connect to the internet.

Some how when i get the two computers the orb is just not there, and the only way to get on the internet is if i repair the connections and then every thing is alright,

But i have to do this at every boot up.

Anyone have this problem?

When I know that I won't be using my PC any time soon I turn it off. However, when I got to turn it back on I notice that I don't have an internet connection.

Yes I did:
Check my other (wired) PCs and they were fineCheck that my ethernet cable is plugged in - I also unplugged and plugged it back in (no difference)Log in and try to load up Google in case the connection was there, but the indicator was lagging or whatever (no difference)Try to do a ipconfig /renew (no difference)

In the end, what worked was for me to restart my computer and the connection would magically be there.

But the thing is, this has been happening to me every single morning for the past two weeks. Sure I could leave my PC on, but I did not always have this issue and leaving it on won't really fix it ...

Has anyone come across this issue before?
P.S. I am using Windows 8.1 Pro Preview

tl;dr
Internets not found when PC turned on.

I'm running a 2004 Dell Dimension 3000 with Windows XP(32) Home. I have a Cisco Linksys router and Emsisoft's Online Armor5.1 firewall. My active malware/virus protection is Microsoft's Security Essentials, Ad-Aware Pro and Emsisoft's Mamutu; and, I periodically scan the system with Malwarebytes, Spybot and MS Security Essentials. So far this has been a "one time" problem that I "fixed" by rolling the entire system back (about a week) to the my last full-system backup. The problem occurred after using the computer each day for about 4 days after the backup (but before the roll-back). Then, right after booting up, neither of my browsers (Google Chrome & Microsoft IE8) could access the Internet -- they just sort of "timed-out". I entered a few Ping commands -- there was no response at all (not even a "time-out" indication). Then, I contacted my Internet Service Provider. After running a few checks, they assured me my system was "connected and properly configured for the Internet, but not sending any data". They referred me to a local "computer service" company. I was reluctant to do that (never had to yet!), so I did the only thing left: rolled the system back to when everything was working properly! Three or four days have passed since then,and all is well. I re-ran the "periodic" scans after the roll-back, and, again, no "threats" were found. Is this a time to &... Read more

Hi All
I wonder if anyone can help me on this, I have Vista Ultimate x32 all well apart from when I boot the machine the internet connection starts up really late good 5min after boot. The only security I have is AVG free addition and I have a router where this PC is connected through weir.
Any thoughts on this please, many thanks
Zed

Answer:Late Internet Connection at boot

I don't really have an answer but in some ways it's a good thing that you aren't connecting until after your other security software is in place.

You want the protection of the anti-virus and anti-spy/malware programs in place before connecting to the Internet.

How many programs do you have starting when you first boot up, if you have unnecessary things starting that can slow things down a bit.

Those are my thoughts with regards your problem maybe some of the experts have other ideas

HiI've recently installed a second internal hard drive.The original drive runs Vista, the second drive I have installed XP. This is all working fine and I can select which operating system to use on start-up.My problem is that, on the new drive with XP installed, i can't connect to the internet. I have an 'always on' cable connection and the PC connects to a router. I've been through the set-up up wizard in XP and followed the built in help. When I go to 'network' it seems I am actually connected to the LAN but I have no IP address or server details (which should be filled in automatically) if I click to 'repair this connection', as instructed in the help, I get the message saying could not repair, please see the system administrator.

I have a Win10 PC (connected via cat5 Ethernet) that will only connect to the internet after running the ipconfig release & renew commands. This started when a electric heater caused a short in the power-strip & everything that was connected to it shut off. This included the modem & the PC. A second PC is hard-wired connected to the modem & doesn't have this issue. It was connected when the short occurred. This problem persists even after the following has been tried: 1. Replacing the original Ethernet cable with a new one. 2. Using a different Ethernet port on the modem. I am thinking the internal ethernet port in the PC could be the problem.

Thanks in advance.

When I turn on the HP laptop, I see the IVENT logo, then the screen goes dark for 30 minutes, then boots completely to reveal Windows XP. I can use the cd/dvd drive but cannot connect to the internet. There is a warranty, but Best Buy advises there are no hardware issues. They said re-loading Windows would fix the problem. I have performed all the restore and windows trouble shooting start-up fixes and those do not work. However, under device manager, the 1394 adapter "has a problem" and there are yellow ? under Ethernet controller, Multimedia Audio controller, Network Controller, PCI Device, PCI Modem, Video Controller and Video Controller (VGA Compatible)and an exclamation pt under SDA Standard Compliant SD Host Controller.

Hi,

I have 2 PCs. I connect to the internet using a Lynksys Router to my ISP Cable Modem. My main machine for gaming and my kid's pc for learning.

I was getting some serious packet loss. So I ran AVG, Ad-aware and Trojan Remover. They found nothing on my main PC. I then ran some speed test @ broadband and found my connection was seriously low. I ran TCP Optimizer and still no change in packet loss. I called my ISP...they did a modem check and found that I had a severe packet loss and will be sending someone over in 2 days :(

They asked me to change my TCP/IP from Use the Following IP Address to Obtain and IP address automatically. Made those changes.

Now everytime I boot up my PC I have a long boot up time and I am unable to connect to the internet and my connection icon says "Acquiring Network Address." When I disable my internet connection I boot up as normal.

I am STUMP as what to do to get my machine back online. Any help would be a godsend!

I then restart the computer and it boots up the same as the first time, except I now have an internet connection.

I have Malwarebytes and MSE installed, I can't see any viruses or anything during scans, and everything seems to run fine with the computer with one exception.

When windows starts, the internet connection shows itself as busy, like it is trying to refresh, and MSE shows NOT PROTECTED. This continues for over 1 minute, possibly close to 2 minutes. Then they activate and everything is fine.

I have looked through my task manager, and I didn't notice anything odd, but this issue has me perplexed.

I am connecting directly to my router, this is a recent windows install (I did everything right).

Another thing I will mention, Intel RSTe also takes a little while to activate. Seems like it is not active for about 2 minutes, then it suddenly activates.

I searched, but everything I found had to do with performance issues, and that is obviously not my issue. The delay is the only thing that is burdening me, and I just want to verify that my computer is not compromised in any way.

Hello,

I have a dual boot windows 7 and XP PC (both 32 bit). I formatted the hard drive 3 weeks ago and installed fresh copies of Windows 7 (RC1 or 7100) and XP.

Everything was working fine until today, upon reboot, my windows seven stopped connecting to internet. I tried several methods in the control panel to connect without any success. So I went back to XP and the internet connects awesome. This confirms that there is no problem with the router or modem (I use a university T3 connection-sometimes go to 8 MB/sec!!!). I had a similar few days ago and I restarted the computer several times and it connected to the internet by itself. Zthis time it doesn't want to do it.

I was wondering if anyone has a solution to this problem. I really liked the Windows 7 and want to use it instead of XP. I have a custom built core 2 duo, 4 GB RAM (3.5 GB detected), 128 MB graphics card and 3 400GB hard drives.

Thanks for any help.

Trying to figure out if this was just a coincidence or what. A few weeks ago, I installed Ubunto 10.4 to an empty partition on my hard drive. I am running Windows 7 on the primary. I used the windows installer to load it. The first attempt failed saying some files were missing. I did it a second time and all went well. I booted Ubunto and was chacking it out to see what it was like, going on the net etc. I rebooted back to Windows to look at something then went back to Ubunto. Still all was fine. My wife needed to use the computer so I went back to Windows. Later when I went back on to Ubunto and tried to go on the net, I got no connection. I looked at my cable modem and noticed mt pc activity light was not blinking as it should. All the other lights were green. I re-booted the modem, no change. I re-booted my pc, no change. I got the same result in Windows so I ran diagnostics on my network connection. All it came up with was a bad or missing Ethernet cable/connection. I kept messing with it trying to restore it but nothing worked. I uninstalled Ubunto to see if that would help- no.

OK. I've set up my PC to dual boot from either it's original Win98SE or XP. This is working fine. The connection between this PC and my other PC also works fine using either 98SE or XP. But the dual booting PC which connects directly to the internet will only see the outside world if I boot to 98SE. If I boot to XP it insists there is a network cable unplugged.

I think this may be because there are some settings which may need to be tweaked (I was hoping XP would detect the connection OK) but as I'm a noob at XP I was hoping someone out there in MG land can help point me in the right direction.

upon cold boot or reboot, i'm unable to get a net connection without power cycling the router and many attempts at the various repair connection options. generally it takes about 5 mins to get the connection working. after it's working, it's fine...getting there is a bi$h, tho.

this same problem has shown itself in rc1, rc2, and now, build 5840. any thoughts on this? is there an asrock beta driver ftp to try another lan driver?
 

Answer:lose internet connection on reboot or cold boot

Thats odd.
Sounds like the router isn't assigning an IP to your NIC when it loses its connection (PC reboot)... which to me sounds more like a problem with the router than the NIC, but I've been wrong plenty of times in the past. I guess it'd be easy enough to try another NIC. I'm assuming you're using the onboard integrated NIC? You can try a different driver... you can also try a different NIC altogether... if you can get your hands on one.

I've never cared for any of the onboard NIC solutions available on motherboards... not even the gigabit ports. I've always been a fan of 3Com and Intel NICs. Currently using Intel gigabit PCI NICs.

Hi all, first I'd like to say I really appreciate the time you take to voluntarily help us people who are not so adept with computers - it's very kind of you!

I tend to try and keep on top of spyware by using adaware regularly, but the last 2 months I admit it, I've been slacking a little. The other day I opened up adaware and after a minute it shut my computer down. It did this a few times until i managed to stop the scan about 30 seconds in and quarantine what it found before it shut down. After I rebooted, adaware no longer shut down my computer, and I was able to quarantine the other 100 or so files (tracking cookies mostly!) it found, then I discovered that I could no longer connect to the internet. After restoring everything I quarantined and browsing for a whiel I read up on that awful SAHAgent.exe and I seem to have removed it.
However, part of my 'fix' was through a file a friend advised I used: Winsockxpfix.exe which I *think* I downloaded from this site: http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html
So after having removed all of the sahagent components I could find and not being able to connect again afterwards, I used this program to repair what SaHAgent damaged and after about 20 seconds (my friend told me it was renewing my IP address or something) my computer was connected to the internet again.

Unfortunately though, each time I boot up my machine, it appears to take a while to fully finish everything. Let me try and explain: ... Read more

I realize this has probably been posted before, but this is honestly the first time I am posting to a forum like this, because I am desperately trying to fix this problem. My computer will usually work fine with the internet up until I put it to sleep for about 15 minutes or more. Once I open my laptop back up and try to get on the internet it will take about 5 min before any page will load up. It will say that my computer is connected perfectly fine until I actually open my browser and after about 10 sec of a page loading it will pop up with the yellow exclamation point on my signal strength saying, "No Internet". Once I close the browser it disappears and looks like everything is fine again. It will repeatedly do this for about 5 min or sometimes more. I have updated all of my network adapters and I just can't find out what is wrong. I also tried using something called TCP Optimizer and it hasn't fixed the problem either. Can anyone please help me? Here is my system info :

I run a windows 7 64 bit home premium machine with a Nvidia Quadro 440 graphics card as well as a Nvidia inboard GeForce 7025 card I installed windows myself and its been working great for the last two years until a few days ago. First it wouldn't shut down properly and got stuck on the logging off screen for about two hours. Then I noticed it needed some 10 updates, which after some effort I managed to install, all apart from one non essential Nvidia update that wouldn't for the life of me update, so I just left it. Then I noticed iTunes not being responsive, it took several attempts for it to recognise my iPod and after various attempts taking some six hours I finally got my iPod updated, i have the latest version of iTunes. I decided to have a go at fixing this. Long story short, I performed a clean boot and now, after I enabled normal start up again;
1) My aero theme has been disabled and is un available for selection,
2) I have lost my Internet connection and the set up wizard isn't working,
3) I can't perform a restore,
4) The windows update service isn't running,
5) And my audio driver seem to have gone too.
6) And when I try to restart the computer, it switches from logging off to shut down no problem, but then gets stuck on shut down.

I need help please, any will be appreciated

Answer:Clean boot disabled aero theme & Internet connection, help?!

Hello thys and Welcome to Seven Forums.
You have some kind of corruption in the system files. This could be signs of a failing hard drive. Here are a couple of things to try
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Press the start button, navigate to the Command Prompt or type cmd in the search box. Right click on the Command prompt in the Start Menu and select Run as Administrator. Type :sfc/scannow and press Enter. Let in run and fix errors if any. Also download Download Hard Disk Sentinel and use the free trial to check out the hard drive.
Report back and post screenshots of the hard drive health.
Geeks are like London Busses there will be another one along shortly with further advice.

Hello, I have a permanent problem with losing WiFi connection after wake up (from hibernation and suspend). The access connection manager looses connection and cannot connect automatically (although the setting is set so). I have to connect manually every time and mostly even three times before it finally connects. The manager says either "driver was disconnected" or "operation was cancelled". Is there any workaround, please? It's horrible to wait minute or two before I can use WiFi after the full wake up. In linux everything works fine Teddy

Hi, all. New here.

Brand new Asus U20A running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

This problem only occurs when the laptop is unplugged from AC power, so far. If I close the lid to hibernate or sleep, my wireless connection will not reconnect upon reopening the lid. I change the Power Saving option to keep the computer from turning off my wireless adapter. To no avail. Changed the lid-close settings to keep the laptop from sleeping/hibernating, but that doesn't solve the core problem.

After reopening the lid, as well, the FN+F2 key that would ordinarily toggle a connect/disconnect option on the wifi adapter does not help. Both the on-screen option and indicator light on the laptop respond, but it does nothing for my connection.

I can't even figure out in Windows where to turn on my wifi adapter without Troubleshooting, which doesn't help most of the time, aside from telling me to "plug in an ethernet cable". Well, duh. It won't even give me the option to connect wirelessly.

Ultimately, rebooting gives me my connection back. But this is not a solution. I should be able to reopen the lid and be connected, whether waking up from hibernate or sleep.

There is nothing wrong with my wifi service, so I can rule that out. There are multiple desktops and laptops that are working fine on the LAN.

My adapter is the Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20) with an updated driver.

Please help! This is a fearsomely annoying problem.

Answer:Wireless connection dies after wake up

There's a place to change how power management controls the adapter under control panel. Go to Network and Sharing, then Change Adapter Settings. Look for the adapter then right click on it and select Properties. Click the Configure button and find the Power Management tab. Try disabling the option that allows Windows to turn off the adapter to save power.

I finally downloaded and installed Windows 8 on my computer today. It has 3 hard drives, an SSD that has Windows 7, and two other drives that have media and other stuff. I shrank one of these volumes and created a new 50 GB partition for Windows 8. The install seemed to be without any glitches and I spent some time exploring the new OS.

After a while, I rebooted to go back to Windows 7 and the network adapter would not connect to the internet. I rebooted and went back to Windows 8 and it did connect to the internet. I should note that upon reboot, the screen was black to make the choice of OS, unlike when 8 first installed.

Basically I get the " Local area doesn't have a valid ip configuration " problem. I tried cycling the modem/router/pc with no luck. I reset the Internet Protocols as suggested but that did not help.

I uninstalled the adapter and let it reinstall in case it was a driver issue, no dice.

I did let Windows 8 do some updates if that is relevant.

Any ideas or suggestions? I appreciate any help.

Hi, I'm writing on the behalf of my brother, who's (desktop) PC is in the room as I write this on my laptop. We usually share our internet connection (I am still using it), but he is no longer able to connect.

In the past, he has gotten a "A network cable has been unplugged" message several times in seemingly random intervals, restarting his PC would usually fix this.

However yesterday he got a message: "This connection has limited or no connectivity" and his game (AlienSwarm at the time (through steam)) stalled out and he decided to restart the PC yet again, only this time after the reboot, he not only wasn't reconnected to the internet, he also couldn't find the Local Area Connection icon(s) in his Network Connections window, the only thing there is a "1394 Connection" which we have no clue about.

I'm gonna add my skype here if any helpful people need more info on this :P Feel free to add jaan.stern

Also I put this in the XP forum, because I wouldn't know which Network support subforum to use!
Thanks!

Answer:[SOLVED] Loss of internet connection, along with missing icons in Internet Connection

but from looking around the internet I had a look on some toutorials. and this is what i been doing . corect me if i am doing something wrong.

1- created a static address for the WOL machine i want to wake up 192.168.0.50
2-forwarded port 9 UDP
3- and i've done al lthe checks and made sure that the computer is able to wake up with the special packet as the toutorial is saying .


but i have no luck waking the machine up over the net but on my LAN i am able to do it with out a problem .


link to one of the toutorials i been looking at : How To: Wake on LAN / Wake on WAN - Step 1 - Enable Wake on LAN - SmallNetBuilder

if there is another way to do this please let me know .

one more thing can my router be suported with DD-WRT if anyone knows .

Thank you

Answer:Wake on LAN over the internet

What IP address are you using to wake the device over the internet? Your router will most likely have NAT installed therefore you will need to use the public IP address of that network and not 192.168.0.50

If you type into Google 'What's my IP' you should receive your public IP address

Hope This Helps,
Josh

You would need to be able to connect to your router public IP while away. Then have the computer at home set up in the bios for WOL. Not real good security. Nor do you want to start opening ports for no reason. Your router will do it on its own self as a case by case necessity.

I have just purchased an HP Pavilion desktop from Currys to replace my old desktop running Windows Vista.  Although faster than my old desktop to boot up, it performs miserably when compared to my HP Envy notebook.  When left for a while it takes 90 seconds to wake up when my HP Envy and the old Vista desktop are instant. Comparing with the HP Envy, both are running the same version of Windows 10 and have the same memory.  The only difference is the processor.  The Envy has  an Intel 2.60 GHz and the Pavilion has an AMD 3.6 GHz.  Both have had McAfee disabled and the only different software running is my email client, Windows Live Mail on the Envy and Mozilla Thunderbird on the Pavilion. On initial power up the Envy shows the welcome screen in 3 seconds, the Pavilion takes 90 seconds.  Wake up from sleep mode is instant on the Envy but 90 seconds on the Pavilion (but only 4 seconds if it has 'just' gone to sleep). I expected similar performance so I am dissappointed with the Pavilion.  Does anyone else experience this slow response?  Are there any settings I can adjust?  Could it be Mozilla Thunderbird? Any comments or ideas will be most welcome,Thanks.

One of the computers here at work has a hard time waking up. It usually gives trouble even coming back from sleep mode when in Windows. You can move the mouse around for a good 2-3 minutes before it wakes up and the screen goes back to the desktop.

Also, I dont think this is related, but when the computer powers on or reboots, it sometimes takes a good 5-10 tries before you can see anything on the screen. You can hear it booting up by the normal computer beeps, but theres nothing on the screen. Ive already replaced the video card and cables. Also I checked the monitor. Its not any of those.

Its an older Gateway 1.2 Ghtz computer with about a gig of ram.

I have this big problem since I have received my P50 (at least for one year now). It is a 7600HQ machine with a Quadro 1000M video card. Let's say I start my day by turning on the laptop. The laptop boots. I see the Windows login screen. If I wait a little the P50 crashed very hard. The screen shows the artifact in the screenshot I have attached but sometimes I see an even color (like yellow) instead of the artifacts. The whole system is frozen. The lights on the keyboard do not react (num lock for example). So I hard reset the laptop using the power button and this repeats for around 10 times before it is booted correctly. And after this: the P50 is rock solid. It stays on for days at a time. Multiple VM's running, 32GB memory, M.2 SSD. Fully functional. So I thought it was Windows and installed Linux.

Hey !

I had a very very disturbing experience in which I was forced to shut down the computer, but failed and accidentally sent it to sleep.
Unfortunately, it never managed to wake up. It stayed during half an hour blocked early in the restarting process... I took my chance with a hard-reset.

And then it becomes insane. It gives me the cold shoulder, just hanging in a "Reverting changes" task. It's been a good while too.

I stand in awe wondering how is it even possible to break my setup like this. Considering the damn thing came with no restoring CD of any kind, on a scale of it's all fine to you're screwed, how exactly would you rate me ?

Thanks for helping !

Answer:Interrupted during wake up, can't boot anymore

It might have a recovery partition where you could revert it to factory settings.

If you can get into the bios enable the boot menu which should activate F-12 to show the boot menu on startup.
If so choose 10 & get into recovery options.

This is the only site that the answers are up to the point, simple, effective and to my experience always spot-on and correct. Thank you for beeing on the world wide web, you make a difference.

Now my question is this. I was always wondering if i could wake on lan my PC remotely i.e through internet. I am using a DSL line and i have the ISP gives me the option to have a static IP for free. So should i go for it? Will i be able to wake my home PC remotely, if i want to? What changes whould i make? Where to start?

Are there any alternatives (for not static IP) that are equally easy to set up and manage?

Also, would you advice me to go for the free static IP. Does it have significant other benefits apart from having a webserver at home (which i dont plan to, at least in the near future)?

Hence, my router has an option to wake on lan other pc's in the LAN. Although this is self explanatory i wonder if it also has to do something with the remote wake on LAN i am requesting info for.

Best regards,
Dionisis

Answer:Is it possible to wake on LAN remotely through internet

Yes you can wake a computer on LAN. Put only if it is in sleep mode. You have to edit the BIOS (CMOS) to enable wake on LAN.

My desktop specs: http://www.techcomet.com/p/my-gadgets.html

I have a Linksys wireless-n router connected directly to my desktop's network card.

I have set it up so that when I send a magic packet over my network my desktop switches on from s3 sleep. Essentially, Wake on LAN is working fine over my wireless network.

What Wake on LAN does is send a "magic packet" to the "broadcast address" (192.168.1.255) of the linksys router. I also have to enter in my devices MAC address which means that the magic packet is only received by my desktop (and no other computer on the network).

Over the LAN WOL works fine. However, it is over the internet I am having a problem.

I have used DynDNS to set up a custom domain which connects to my external IP. The wifi router also has "DDNS" section where I can input the DynDNS settings so the router automatically updates DynDNS whenever my external IP changes. So, my domain stays the same (e.g. domain.dyndns.org) while my IP changes.

To ensure that my custom domain works when connecting to my PC, I have used VNC. I can connect over the internet to my computer and control it without any problems.

The problem I am having is that I am unable to use WOL over the internet.

I have searched the web and found a number of solutions that sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t.

Firstly, it has been suggested that I port forward the port through which the magic packet is sent through to the routers broadcast address.... Read more

The keyboard lit up
I hear the fan start
I hear the optical drive engage
I get a black screen.
I do not hear any beeps.

Pressing the power button again immediately shuts everything down.

Here is what I've tried to get a response:

Removed battery and AC then held down power button to discharge. Result: nothing.
Pressed Fn+F1 with an external monitor attached. Result: nothing.
Pressed D while powering. Result: Screen flashed different colors but didn't boot.
Pressed Fn+F5 while powering: Result: nothing
Created a Windows10 installation CD (on another computer) and tried to reboot so I could run Repair your computer. Result: nothing except now...

I can't eject the CD from the optical drive
Pressing D no longer flashes the screen

So I've tried everything I can find. Any help would be appreciated.

I have also switched SATA in BIOS to 'compatibility' and upgraded the BIOS as recommended. I have also disabled AMT inside the BIOS. I'm really stumped here. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hi all

I recently clean re-installed Win7 Pro 64 and now the Power Options keep reverting to High Performance every time I re-boot and even on wake up. If I set it to a power plan every time it works fine that one time.

I didn't make any changes to hardware/bios from previous install. The only change is that I first installed XP x86 to a separate redundant HD to enable a legacy scanner for which no 64bit drivers are available and I only boot into XP on an occasional as and when basis. I didn't make any changes to Windows boot manager & can only boot into it from F8.

I also downloaded a legacy game from Steam which is running happily on Win7. I rapidly decided that I hate Steam so I set it not to run at startup, only play offline and kill all associated process after closing the game. Again, I'm not running the game on a daily basis so it's unlikely this is affecting this persistant behaviour.

Grateful for any ideas.

Ian

I have a Dell Dimension E310 running Windows 7. I upgraded to Win7 about 5 months ago and then added a video card about 2 months ago. About the time I added the video card (NVIDIA GForce 8400 GS), my Dell stopped coming out of sleep mode. I have to hard power down and then I can restart. Only recently I've noticed that even when I shut down and let the machine sit for a few hours, it behaves the same when I push the power button as it does when I try to bring it out of sleep. Here is what happens in both cases (trying to come out of sleep or trying to start after shut down):

Power comes on to the computer (the fan starts, the lights on the box come on), however I don't hear the disk drive spin and the monitor doesn't wake up. If I hard power down and then re-power on, everything works just fine.

I have NOT upgraded my power supply and I guess the video card may be drawing more power. Could this be it? Could there be a capacitor that needs to have some charge to get things started and that is why it works on the second start, but not the first start? Or is this a bad hypothesis? Any suggestions out there?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Dell won't wake from sleep - takes 2x to boot

I've now installed a higher wattage power supply (430 W to replace the old 230 W) which should be more than enough. Unfortunately, symptoms are the same: If the machine is off for a few hours, it requires two tries to startup. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hello All, Just received my lenovo ideapad y460p and whenever I shut down the computer, or put the computer in sleep / hibernation mode the only way I can restart it is by removing the battery, unplugging the power cord, inserting the battery and plugging it back in. At first I thought it was a bug with the hibernation function so I disabled it via the command prompt. However the issue continues. I consulted Lenovo support via their instant message chat function but they were unable to diagnose the issue and directed me to the warranty support phone number, suggesting "one key recovery." I assume that means a system restore and hope there is a better solution than resetting the laptop to factory defaults as a first step. Please let me know if there are any suggestions or if anyone else is experiencing this issue. Thanks!Mark

Answer:y460p - Critical Boot / Wake Up Issue

Does anybody have any ideas why wake on lan over internet doesn't work with my DGL-5500 and my Rampage IV extreme mobo custom setup. I have configured everything properly as far as I can tell. I can wake the computer with a magic packet (from off) over LAN IP, and also over internet, but only for about five minutes after the computer has been powered down. From what I've read, I'm guessing the router drops it from it's cache after 5 minutes. I have my computer assigned an ip (no expiration) in the router setup pages, but this did not solve the problem.

Is it possibly the arp cache that is reset on the router? As a note, wake on LAN over internal network IP (ie. the 192..., works no matter how long the computer has been off), but wake on wan does not work after about 5 minutes or so of being powered off. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Wake on Lan over internet with D-Link DGL-5500

WoL is a broadcast packet, so it doesn't need to be targeted to a specific pc. If you are using port forwarding instead of sending the packet to say 192.168.1.2 you want to send it to the broadcast address. So if you have a 192.168.1.0/24 network (most likely) then port forward to 192.168.1.255 and it will direct the packet to all pcs on your network as a broadcast. It will only wake up the pc you want as the magic packet is configured for that pc.

Hi parrotplay,

Please go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/, and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log as a .txt file, and copy and paste its contents into your next post.

Most of what it lists will be harmless, so do not fix anything yet.

Hi,

I am running Windows 7 Pro x64 and I am having an issue where my computer goes into sleep mode, fails to wake from sleep, strangely resumes its state once I do a cold restart, and then after restarting again, refuses to boot.

Here is what's happening step-by-step:
Computer goes to sleep based on the time set in the Balance Power options scheme. Fine. Often, computer wakes up perfectly fine from moving the mouse or pressing a key. Fine. Very occasionally however, upon waking up the computer, the lights, keyboard lights, fans and everything else except for the display comes on. I am forced to do a cold shutdown by pressing the reset button. Upon booting up, Windows displays "Restarting Windows" rather than "Starting Windows" and resumes its state when it went to sleep. Strange but OK. Everything seems to work normally. The problems come in when I then do a shutdown or restart after it has resumed from the cold shutdown. The computer shuts down perfectly fine but during the next boot, freezes right during the animation of the windows logo and immediately restarts the computer and launches into the DOS-looking prompt asking whether I want to do a Startup Repair because the computer failed to boot.

I have tried Startup Repair from HD and from the Windows disc and neither have done anything. I am usually forced to just reformat everything and start anew. This problem recently started occurring after I installed an Intel X-25m 120GB ssd and put th... Read more

Answer:Windows fails to wake from sleep, then corrupts boot

Hi,

I just recently got hit with a similiar problem, it unfortunately resulted in a corrupted BIOS that is unrepairable, it ends up locked in a low power state. There is no one single reason why Windows fails to wake up, and it's kind of a common problem. From the research I've put into it, hardware and the version of Windows does not matter. You'll either suffer from it, or you won't. My recommendation would be to disable both your display and PC sleep settings, and stick to manually shutting down and a screensaver to completely avoid it before any possible hardware damage is inflicted, and until there is more information available on it. The CPU, mobo and PSU are the most likely to become damaged.

If you still wish to use Sleep, make sure all your drivers are up to date, along with Windows, might make a small difference.

If you have another system available to you, or are able to borrow a mates, go ahead and use it to test your hardware for faults incase your situation is hardware based, and not failed coding on Microsoft's part. Also on that note, try removing your SSD for a week or two (or however long it usually takes before your system decides to sleep in) and see if it solves it, and post back with results.

I would still keep an eye on here, no less, incase a solution comes to light. Go ahead and do some Google searches on the issue, the plethora of possible fixes people have tried may work for you.

If possible, can you recall anything else you have ... Read more

I'm new to sevenforums and would appreciate the help of some of you. I have updated my user profile with all of the details and specs of my system that is having my issue.

Recently, my computer will not wake up from sleep mode. Once it enters sleep mode, the only way to get it functioning again is to hold the power button, completely shut it off, and then boot my system back up.

It appears as if everything starts back up once I open the lid or press the power button to wake it up, but the screen never turns back on. The fan starts up, the backlit keyboard lights up, the leds all blink, but nothing I try will turn the screen back on forcing me to press and hold the power button for a complete shut down.

I have reinstalled the latest Intel HD Graphics driver as well as the latest NVIDIA graphics driver (both the stable and beta release).

I do not get a blue screen or any sort of error. Upon the restart, I am not prompted with any error from windows or any signs of the forced shut down. I have been messing with this issue for a few days now and am asking for some help from the community here at sevenforums. If you need any additional info let me know.

Thanks.

Lately, when I put my desktop computer to sleep and when I wake it up again, I have to do a restart to get the internet back again. This is an intermittent problem and only has been happening recently. I was having a lot of trouble with Blue Screens of Death and the "Aw! Snap!" memory problems with Google Chrome so I was fooling around a lot trying to fix those problems. I turned out that I had a bad RAM chip so when I swapped the RAM cards out for new, the Blue Screens stopped happening as well as the Chrome memory problems ended. But, I cannot remember what all I messed with, settings wise.

I use HughesNet satellite as my internet provider.

Any idea of what I may have changed to cause this?

Your ISP is more than likely The problem.

This is probably your problem. Satellite use for getting on The Net is close to being worse than a dial Up. When I worked for EDS I installed/maintained Satellite Systems that at the time were on every GM Dealership, this was before the Net too hold. Get another provider , there has to be at least AT&T around where you live unless you are in The UP. I used to Live in The Detroit area. Dish use is very unstable due to weather, sun spots, the dis has to be pointed directly at the Satellite .

After setting up a dual boot system successfully,
Vista connects to internet via ethernet, Ubuntu does not.

sis ethernet driver is updated to latest version

I can access the internet from Ubuntu however, after shutting down the pc, unplugging the power cord, removing the cmos battery and reinstalling. I reinsert the power cord and boot up as normal into Ubuntu, and have full access to internet.

Simply removing/reinserting ethernet cord, removing/reinserting pc or cable modem power cord, or resetting cable modem, does not work.

Wednesday I installed Windows 10, upgrading from 8.1 & have had unacceptable boot & sleep wake times (7-12 minutes) and application not responding errors since. The only odd part of the install was AMD video updates, which I have backed out & reinstalled but no impact.  I searched for fixes and tried microsoft fixes like cleanmgr, msconfig & services.msc to remove unneeded items in hopes of improving boot time. In device manager I tried removing devices to have them reset themselves. Nothing is working. I recorded the time for bootup taking about 2 minutes from black screen to windows symbol with circle, then black screen for 3 minutes before 'please wait message', after signon taking 4 or more minutes to be able to access start menu or run program.  Full boot time is 10+ minutes - WOW, so frustrating I leave the room! Here are my system specs: HP Pavilion dv7 NotebookProduct number A6W99UA#ABAIntel Core i5-2450M CPU 2.50GHzSystem board 1800 10.5ABIOS F.1C16gb RAMDisplay - AMD Radeon HD 7400M Series 15.200.1062.1002 (7/15/2015) & Intel HD Graphics 3000 9.17.10.4229 (5/27/2015)Toshiba MK7575GSX hard drive 672GBOptical disk HP BD DS6E2LH FH62 I like the new interface with Windows 10 but am frustrated with not having reliable system since upgrade (note a desktop and net book I upgraded from 8.1 are both behaving normally - so I do believe this is system specific). ANY IDEAS?

I've started to have a number of debilitating problems with my lumia 950, which is a shame because they are the same problems that made me leave android for the WP platform. To start off, my phone has been randomly restarting. The restarting seems to have started after the anniversary update version 1607. There's nothing common between one reset to the next, just that they become more frequent as battery life reduces (starts at around 80%). This is also sometimes accompanied by a streak yellow across the screen. I don't know if this is relevant or not.
My second issue, which has been happening the longest, is that the screen will sometimes be completely off when I wake up the phone. I will put the phone into sleep with the power button, and when I wake it up with the power button the screen is black. I know the phone is awake because windows hello will try to sign me in. I have reason to believe that the touch digitizer is also still working. This is fixed either by trying to sleep cycle the phone or by holding down the power button until the phone prompts me to power it off. This seems to wake the screen up. the screen also sometimes wakes up when windows hello signs me in, but this is rare. This problem has become less frequent since the anniversary update.

Hi,

I am new here. Hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I work in IT so am not a complete computer bonehead and am at my wits end with this.

My laptop is about 4 years old, it's a toshiba. For whatever reason, it started taking 5+ minutes to wake up from sleeping. If it sleeps for an hour, it's OK.. but if you leave it sleep all night and try to wake it up in the morning, it's quite cranky. After the 5+ minute wake up, it performs as normal. It was running Windows 7 Home 32 bit.

Troubleshooting steps that I have taken are as follows.

Reinstalled windows. Issue was resolved! but after about 2-3 weeks, issue came back. I thought maybe it was some type of windows update, so I reinstalled windows again and paid closer attention to the updates. Issue presented itself again after 2-3 weeks, and there were no updates immediately done prior to it starting.

I started to think maybe it was something related to my hard drive, so i performed laptop surgery and swapped out my original hard drive with a solid slate drive, and installed windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (this laptop can support 64 bit so I figured why not upgrade.).

issue again was resolved for a few weeks, and now it's back to taking 5+ minutes to wake up again.

If you're turning the laptop on from scratch, it takes 10-15 seconds tops. if you're restarting, it's 10-15 seconds tops (man, I love SSD...)... if you're waking itup within the hour, its 1-2 seconds. But anything longer then that, 5+ minutes.

Hi
 
I am experiencing some problems with my "Asus essentio desktop pc".
When I am browsing the internet using several tabs the mouse sometimes "get stuck" for about 2-3 seconds and then the mouse symbol is starting to act strange.. This is like a prelude to my computer not responding at all. Not by mouse or by keyboard, no matter what combinations I try... Then I have no choice but to turn the computer off by using the On/Off button on the chassi.
 
When I start it again, sometimes it´s working allright again, until the same procedure starts over. First the mouse acting strange, then it not responing at all..
At other times, when I start it up again it tells me I have a problem with the driver for my network adapter. But if I just pull the network adapter-plug out, then in again it works fine.
 
Do I have a virus? I have tried reinstalling windows 7 again, but it doesn´t help.
 
I would be VERY grateful for your help, because this is just killing me!

I am using Acer Travelmate 8204WLMi laptop running the latest RC build of Windows 7. The internet connection is lost on both LAN adapter and WLAN (3945ABG) adapter when laptop is restored from a 'sleep' mode. I have disabled 'Power Management' of each adapter via the Device Manager. I have updated to the latest set of updates.

Disabling and re-enabling LAN or WLAN adapter to restore connectivity does not work (as it does in Win-XP). I have tried to 'log off' and log back in but this does not work either. I have discovered that the only way to restore connectivity is to re-boot the laptop.

It would appear that there is an issue of the Windows 7 code to correctly manage the LAN/ WLAN adapters. Has anyone else come across this problem?

Answer:laptop sleep mode: internet lost upon wake-up

Yes, exactly the same problem on a dell studio 15 (1555). I tried disabling the adaptor before sleep then re-enabling after waking but it did not help.

Hello. I'm looking at this laptop: http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron-15-3542-laptop/pd?oc=fncwg2327b&model_id=inspiron-15-3542-laptop

I would like to know if it has wake on LAN and wake on RTC or not.
 

Answer:Solved: Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Series - Wake on LAN & Wake on RTC?

Since I did not get an answer here, I went ahead and ordered the machine anyway, and took a chance. It does NOT have either feature in it.

It passed my other tests, so I'm keeping it and the next computer I get will probably have both of those features, but for this one, I guess I'll live without, since the network isn't finished to the point where I could actually use it anyway yet.

I have a Dell Optiplex 755 with WinXPPro SP3, 2GB RAM and an Intel Core 2 Duo E4600, and it is unreliable for Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring. I also wonder whether my Standby - Sleep - Suspend (S1 or S3) is working correctly.

When the PC is in Standby - Sleep - Suspend mode (S1 or S3), Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring work some of the time but not all of the time, and I'd like them to be 100% reliable.

These may be two different problems, but your advice will be appreciated. (Also, if I should post in a different forum, please advise.)

My Network Card is an Intel 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection, and I recently upgraded its drivers using "generic" PROXP.exe from the Intel website, although this has not helped the problem. The specific driver file e1e5132.sys is now from 2009 -- it used to be from 2007. But, as I say, Wake on LAN from Standby was not and is still not reliable, both before and after the driver update.

In Settings .. Network Connections ... Local Area Connections ... Properties ... Configure ... Power Management, all the Wake on LAN options are checked ON:

- Wake on Directed Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet from Power Off State
- Wake on Link

The NIC card's Diagnostic checks are all OK.

My fax modem card is a Conexant D850 PCI V.92 Modem, and I have the most recent drivers dated 7/27/07, version 7.67.0.50. In Settings ... Phone and Modem Options ... Modems ... Properties, "Allow this device to bring... Read more

Answer:Trouble with Wake on Ring, Wake on LAN and Standby - Sleep - Suspend

More to above: Dell has suggested I must re-install Windows. I've never done that, and I realize I'd probably lose all my applications and data - no good. Seems to me that's like using an atomic bomb to kill a mosquito. And why should I assume that will work?

But is there a way to re-install -- or maybe fix -- Windows that leaves everything else safe?

FYI - About a month or so ago, I ran SFC (System File Checker) in repair mode, and that didn't help with this problem.

Any ideas?

When I put my computer in sleep mode, it won't 'wake up'. I have to manually turn off the computer and then start it up again. This has happened twice. I'm not putting it into sleep mode until I find out what's wrong and that's exasperating as I normally leave my computer on all day so I can periodically play my games.

Answer:Computer won't 'wake up' after sleep mode with Windows 10, how can I wake it?

I'm having the exact same issue. No idea what to do.

Title says it all. I have to manually close out of uTorrent before I sleep my PC, because if I don't, my computer will wake without internet connectivity for 5+ minutes.

Anyone know the cause or a fix?

Answer:Putting PC to sleep while uTorrent is running means no internet on wake

I have a c200 425 3gu all-in-one that has been very frustrating for 2 issues.   Since I've had it: 1.  On booting the computer, the screen is black.  I have to put it in sleep mode using fn/pc key, then once the power button is flashing (which sometimes takes several fn/pc hold downs), i think push the power button briefly.   Then the monitor display led turns on showing the monitor has been switched off.  Then I push the monitor power button and I have display.  If I put it to sleep instead of turning off computer, it does the same thing.    I have waded around the Lenovo support site until I feel like puking.   There must be a simple fix and it must be a problem on more than just my machine.   Very frustrating.     2. Slow.   I have DSL, which isn't great but i regularly get 3MB download.   On my Dell laptop using a wireless connection, I have this speed.   On my bluray player I have this speed, again a wireless.   But on the C200, I have half the speed, whether wired or wireless.   I've turned off all virus and malware software, deleted all uncessary programs - plenty of hard drive space.   There is no gaming software or any fancy software.   This machine is just used for web surfing.   1GB Ram.   This thing should be faster.  Any ideas?

hi Lews,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
Regarading your questions, try to:
 
1. Reboot the computer in Safe Mode . If the problem doesn't occur, open Device Manager (click Start > Device Manager) and under Display Adapters, uninstall the display driver (this can be an Intel GMA3150 or Nvidia G305M). To reboot into normal mode, open msconfig and under General Tab, set it to Normal Startup and observe.
 
If the issue persists, but can hear something on the background, there's a possible short on the function board (this is the chip that controls the buttons at the lower right side of the screen) and you will need to contact Lenovo support for service. Support phone list here.
2. For slow Wifi, If you have the Atheros AR9285 Wireless Adapter and running Windows 7, you can try to:
a. Update your wireless card driver to v10.0.0.75, get it here.
b. Depending on your brand of router, make sure you disable WMM (Wireless Multimedia) and WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)
c. Use WPA/WPA2-PSK TKIP or AES encryption.
d. If you have a dual band router (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz), try to use only 2.4Ghz band.
e. After applying steps a-d, try running a speedtest again via www.speedtest.net
 
 
Let me know your findings.
 
Cheers.

K430 won't boot after tyring to add another partition to hard drive, adding SSD and rebooting. Fan runs 100%, no other noises or monitor response, and keyboard F12 does not work. I rebooted about 50 times and was able to get it back up only once and reinstall windows 10, and have not been able to get it to reboot again after many tries. I have tried unsuccessfully with both drives, SSD only and HDD only, and cannot get any response. How do i get back into the system or get it to reboot successfully?

I just recently purchased a HP Pavilion dv6 2155 notebook about a month ago. i am a college student and i live on campus i normally connect to the campus internet by plugging in my ethernet cord. It's been working fine for the past month until yesterday it started going real slow then it completely stopped working. It says that im connected but it says no internet access. It shows up as IPv4 No internet connection and IPv6 no internet connection. My brother has a laptop and he connects the same way as i do and his is working just fine. I've tried googling the problems and troubleshooting them but it still doesn't seem to work. Someone please help me!!! Thanks....I did the ipconfig /all in command prompt and this is what it shows up

Well I've fiddled around and searched to no avail ...

I have some form of conflict between my main wireless network and a LAN I use for file
transfer and streaming.

The attached PDF file illustrates the setup. Basically, the wireless network is fine by
itself. Music streams from the Asus EeePC to the various Squeezeboxes and internet
connectivity is enabled on all PCs and the iPad.

The LAN works well by itself, allowing me to use FreeFileSync to quickly and relaible
transfer / backup music between the Acer dekstop and Asus netbook server PCs, and to
stream music from the Asus EeePC (which is the music server running Logitech Media
Server) to the Squeezebox 2.

However, the two networks can't co-exist without the Acer and/or Asus losing internet
connectivity when their respective LAN connections are made to the Buffalo router they
share with the Squeezebox 2.

The notification area shows:-

Currently connected to:

BuffaloLocalNet
No internet access

SqueezeNet
Internet access

Wireless Network Connection:

SqueezeNet Connected

DD-WRT

I have attached the ipconfig /all output in the out.txt file and diagram of the network in Network.pdf.

I suspect this is a simple clash of parameters somewhere, or incompatible IP addresses but I'm not good enough to resolve it.

Thanks.

OK. I'm trying to switch from wireless to a faster(?) ethernet cable based internet access.
I use a Dell Optiplex 755, 32 bit OS, Windows 7. I'm the utilizing Comcast high speed internet supplier, a LinkSys E4200 wireless router, a LinkSys WUMC710 (wireless-ac universal media connector; with promises faster connections/speeds) with ethernet cable OUT to the ONLY ethernet port/card supplied [Network Connector (RJ-45)] on the rear of the small form factor tower. when I run the PC with USB wireless (Linksys AE2500) it works fine, but, I hope for an improvement with the LinkSys WUMC710 inserted in the chain.
the Network Adapter (found in Device Manager) is the Intel(R) 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection. This DOES NOT work with the ethernet cable connection (error 651, WAN Miniport problem). even when I uninstall this driver, it reinstalls upon Windows 7 restart, which is contrary to some of the suggested fix posts I've found in on-line forums dealing with these types of issues.

I'm thinking it may be a missing driver for the ethernet port/Network Connector (RJ-45), but, I am neither a hardware, nor IT tech. therefor I have no idea what driver I would SPECIFCICALLY require ofr this port(?), nor can I discern the particular ethernet card that came factory installed on this machine. I have consulted the Dell site and, lo & behold, they don't endorse using Windows 7 on the Optiplex 755, so the only driver updates/downloads are listed for endorsed OS's XP & Vista. so n...
