Win7 64 bit Wireless Drops - Rest of network fine

Question: Win7 64 bit Wireless Drops - Rest of network fine

Was wondering if anyone has an idea of what may be happening. Everything was working fine then this happened out of no where one day. I am on a Windows 7 64 bit machine using wireless. Linksys WRT350N Router all of the other computers on the network are working perfectly fine. I have tried 2 different wireless adapters.

The internet will stay for a few minutes then cutout for about a minute. I have been running ping tests side by side one going to the internet the other going to my router.
The router is constant connection no interruptions the internet cuts out as stated before.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

It could be a channel crossover problem or something else but this is difficult to just guess at because it can be many different problems.

If you can download the Xirrus WiFi inspector and post a screen shot of the read out here it would be helpful.

I've got a big problem and am desperate for a solution. My computer went offline today and I can't seem to get it back on, no matter what I try. The odd thing is, everything else in my network seems to be ok.
Here's the network setup:
Cable -> Modem (Comcast Xfinity Ubee, can't find the model number) -> Router (Netgear WNDR4500) -> 24 port Switch (trendnet) -> computers
Earlier today I restarted my computer and when it came back on, I had no internet. This sometimes happens when I have my Nvidia Shield plugged in though ethernet, so I unplugged the Shield, reset the network, and came back. My computer still isn't able to connect to the internet. But everything else on the network has no problems, both wired and wireless.
The very odd part is that I seem to have some internet. Just nothing usable. I have a network monitor widget that says I'm online. It gives me my internal and external IP address and it looks normal. It even shows outgoing and incoming activity. My windows Network and Sharing Center shows me as online. And even Windows Update seems to have an internet connection (along with the device manager "search for drivers" function). But when I open any webpage in Chrome or Opera, it tells me I have no internet connection. My Adobe CC, Origin, Google Drive, and all other web services say I have no internet. Steam won't even open.

I have 2 laptops, one running Vista Home Premium SP1 and the other running XP Pro. Both are connected wireless to the same home cable internet connection.
On the Vista laptop, internet connectivity dropouts have become so frequent that they make web browsing on the machine almost unbearable.

While the Vista machine has problems, the XP machine loses no connection, performing just fine. When I am not experiencing connectivity drops I get intermittant VERY SLOW page loads. I Get etiher "Connection to the Server was reset, Try again" messages or have to continually reclick the link to get it to connect.

The laptop has a Dell 1395 wireless WLAN mini card and it reports that it has the latest drivers.
I have disabled Bluetooth in case it was causing a conflict, I have turned off the lan card, set the wireless power settings to Maximum performance and disables some page scaling thing that vista does all to no improvement.

I am running PCcylinn Internet security 14 as well as MS Defender, have disabled both and again found no improvement.

We have had this laptop for about a year and these problems have become progressivly worse for the past 3 months or so. About 3 months ago Dell replaced the motherboard under warranty (my wife spilled a glass of wine on the laptop).To the best of my recollection these problems began AFTER the MB change, but I can not say that for sure.

Any help in diagnosing this and ultimately solving this would be most appreciated.

Thanks.
 

Answer:Constant Wireless Connectivity drops on Vista, fine on XP

What about logging in to your wireless router on the vista machine? Does that seem slow as well? Have you tried transfering data between the two computers via a shared folder to test the connection without going on the web?

I would try going into the wireless router and double checking settings like mac filtering and playing with wep wpa on or off.

Another thing you could probably do and I would try this first is to change the frequency or "channel" of the routers broadcasting signal. Some routers you can change it from ex: channel 9 11 or 6. Some better routers have more options available.

Hi - I have scoured the boards but can't find a solution for this so any help will solve a big problem for me.

My desktop PC keeps dropping its wireless connection to the router. My laptop (and other devices) can connect fine and never drop. It connects fine on start-up and may allow me to browse the web for a while but then drops out and I can't understand what triggers it.

I'm running Vista Home Prem SP1 and use a Netgear Rangemax USB adapter WPN111 to connect. The driver is up to date.

Any suggestions...?

Hello,

Here is my issue: I got Verizon DSL for my business and hooked it up to the server to allow internet access. If I hook it up from modem to pc, the internet works fine with no drops. If I add a wireless router into the mix, my problems begin.

My hook up: The server already has a wired router with 3 other computers connected to the router for the business Point of sale program. The router is hooked up to the Ethernet port on the PC. When I got the DSL and wanted the wireless router added to the server so I can access the net when I come into the business and have my laptop with me, I decided to add a Ethernet PCI card to the computer and hook up the modem and wireless router to that card so I could do the DSL installation without disturbing the work computers. All seemed well or I thought.

My problem: When I hooked everything up I got internet and thought all was good. After about 20 minutes I lost internet on the server (the wired part) but I had my laptop out and checked it with that and I was browsing the net on the wireless laptop. I rebooted computer, powered cycle the modem and router and got internet access on the server again. 20 minutes later, internet access lost again but my laptop was fine.

After many attempts and phone calls into Linksys, I figured it must have been the router. I returned the router and got another wrt54g router and attempted the configuration again. Same thing happened with the new router too.

My boss has a WRT150N that he wants to add to our network. The line coming into this router comes from a switch which all of our other computers/printer are connected to. The router transmits the internet fine, but I cannot access the LAN when connecting through the router. The printer has a static IP. All internet traffic comes through a hardware firewall which is between the outside world and the switch. When I connect the line going into the router straight into a computer, the computer can see the network/print/whatnot fine.

It's late, I'm tired, and probably did not give enough information for any help. I will add more info tomorrow
 

Answer:Wireless router won't let me see the rest of the network

is that line connecting to the "internet" or "wan" port on the wrt150n router by any chance? if so, try connecting it to a regular lan port and see if that helps.

I am having a frustrating time with my network. I work for an animall hospital and we have a wired/wireless network with 9 computers (mixed vista ultimate and xp pro with server 2003 sp2 on the server). I am using a Linksys WRT320n router.

My main problem is with my 2 wireless computers, a desktop with a US Robotics 802.11g turbo and one of my laptops, a Dell Inspiron 6400. They are no more then 30 feet from the router and always have a strong signal but will drop their connection and have to be logged of and logged back on. It is very frustrating because there is no rhyme or reason for it. Sometimes it will stay connected all day without dropping and other days it will drop 6-8 times.

I am not sure if this is related or not, but there are several wireless networks that can be seen by these computers including a Comcast WIFI and an Optonline WIFI.

Also, the network will slow down every so often (wired as well as wireless) and I am no sure what the is about. Our applications that we run are not very intence (no graphics or large packets being sent.) Some one said they thought there might be a some sort of a Windows Sharing App. running on the server that was bogging it down but I am not sure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Hi BC

I am using XP. My wireless network is using the "G Wireless Modem Router3 by Belkin. It is running unsecured.

The network normally runs adequately - there are annoying moments when it just seems to freeze, but 30 seconds later it comes back to life.

Yesterday it was performing as usual (ie adequately). Today I cannot connect to the internet at all, either with IE or Mozilla (my normal browser). When I look at the network status all seems well - it is shown as connected, and the signal strength is "excellent". But the efforts to connect just time out: Mozilla says that "the connection was reset", lets you "try again", but it never connects.

I have AVAST running in fully protected mode. I decided to run Malwarebytes to check for anything unusual. It asked if I wanted to update the virus database - I agreed - it then hung, presumably because it could not make its connection! I ran it again, this time refusing to do the update, and it completed a Quick Scan reporting no problems found.

I disconnected from my network, and connected to a neighbour's unsecured network, and everything worked fine.

I switched my router off and on and tried my network again - same problem.

I tried doing a "repair" on the connection (by right clicking on the taskbar icon) - this operation rarely seems to complete normally on my computer. It frequently times out with a message like "unable to connect", but when you then examine t... Read more

Hi I'm having problems with my internet connection. It used to work no problem but just in this last week it has started playing up. I have tried resetting the router and setting up the internet connection again from scratch but it hasn't solved the problem.

It will connect to the wireless network but then drop it every so often, sometimes it will go to local access only, next minute it will lose connection all together. This is very frustrating and I have no idea how to fix it

Can anyone give me some advice?

Hello all.

Yes, it's yet another "My Wireless Won't Work Right" thread! Your help would be greatly appreciated!

I recently moved to a new house, and set up one PC downstairs, with a Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router. PC#1 is hardwired to the router, no problems there. PC#2 (with a Linksys WMP54G card) is upstairs, one floor up and probably 20 feet over. Both PCs are above ground (nothing in the basement).

Initially, PC#2 was connecting pretty well. Generally I'd hit 54 Mbps and "very good" signal quality. But, it was spotty. While the connection wouldn't drop entirely, it would frequently drop enough to disrupt my FTPing of large files across the internet. I had my suspicions about the card, which had been jostled a lot and didn't seem to have a great connection between the antenna and card itself.

So, I replaced the whole setup with a brand-spanking new WRT54GS router and a WMP54GS card. Unfortunately, things have gone from bad to worse. It took me 3 hours on Support Chat with Linksys to even get any kind of a connection from PC#2, and now it just dies completely for huge chunks of time. I'll be online with a 54 Mbps connection, Very Good signal strength, then BOOM, couldn't find a network. Then 30 minutes later, it will miraculously find it again. It happens often enough that the PC is essentially useless for any work that requires an Internet connection. Note: Linksys' monitoring tool finds my network with a c... Read more

Answer:Wireless Network Connection Drops

If I understood correctly, your laptop experience pretty much proves that you are getting a constant good strong signal to the location of the problem computer. If so, don't mess with router's antenna.

Go to the Linksys web site and make sure you have the latest driver and utility for the adaptor.

Move the computer around a little. Maybe the fan or power supply or something is in the direct path of the signal.

Are you managing the connection with the Linksys utility or with Windows' Wireless Zero Configuration? Try the other one.

Are you using encryption? If so, WEP or WPA?

My wife's computer running XP OS with SP3, connected to our WPA-2 wireless network with Linksys WUSB100 adapter, keeps losing its Internet connection whenever she is offline (not logged off for a period of time), connected to a broadband modem through a Linksys WRT120N Wireless Router. Linksys has its own wireless manager, which conflicted with Windows XP WZC, so I went in and disabled that ( did nothing to solve problem). However, we have an unsecured wireless network in our immediate neighborhood, and that is the network (albeit with a weak signal, and a speed of only 24mbs speed) that her computer connect to. There must be a way of blocking her computer from connecting to that network, or to remove that network from the available networks list. I have been searching online for solutions, and have contacted Linksys support several times for support, but they claim to have no solutions.

Hi,

My wireless network speed cuts out every 20 seconds or so during high-speed downloads and/or file transfers within my LAN (i.e., it's not my ISP). My signal strength never drops below 70%, but yet for some reason, the network drops out. It is almost like the entire computer locks up a little bit. I can't even get another web page to load while it's happening until it recovers.

I'm running Win7 RC x64. The adapter is a Realtek RTL8187. I've tried 3 years worth of drivers (including the ones that I had running on my Vista x64 OS), switched the wireless channels from 1 to 6 to 11 and back again. I've tried every possible 'netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=...' value. I've disabled every other adapter in the system. I've tried downloading to different drives, on different controllers, even tried IDE/SATA.

See attachments for samples of whats going on. As I wrote this, the ping window was still running--it's fine... until I download something.

Very very annoying...

Answer:Wireless network drops out during downloads

well, a few things you can start to do.... first is to swap out routers if possible. Next, swap out wireless cards if possible or vice versa, cards then router. next would be to do a line stress test, or just a test of the line. This can be done at dslreports.com , tho you may have to signup/register to be able to use this feature.

there is probably a few more things to try, but i would get past these steps first before i go doing much anything else.

btw, am having the same problem here... but my swapping out routers does nothing, and its not the wireless card here, as it happens on the whole network, wireless gets bottlenecked, and therefore shuts down just the wireless signal, if on wire you are fine. Point in case, not just my belkin wireless G, but the laptop gets the same treatment. Atleast by that i mean, if i lose connection here, so does the laptop. I have yet to see if i can create the same results in reverse, having to see if the laptop can crash the wireless network signal. So, i'm still investigating this myself.... welcome aboard matey! Is all i can say for now.

This is a common problem judging by the results of a web search. I'm hoping one of the good folks here knows of a solution that actually works!

I have an Epson Artisan 810 printer that has wireless networking. My desktop connects to this printer by USB and the network by Ethernet. Our laptop connects to everything wireless. Everything works just as you would expect except:

When the printer goes into "idle" mode (low power - standby) it drops off the network and the laptop can't find it to print to. The desktop (of course) can print to it in low power mode. But, this only happens in a particular order:
If the laptop connects to the printer and prints, then the printer goes into idle mode, the laptop can still print to the printer.
If the printer is on (not into idle) and the laptop restarts it can print.
If the printer is in idle, and the laptop is restarted, it will not print.
If I turn the printer off, then back on, it is recognized and works again wirelessly.
What I have tried:
Set a static IP on the printer
Reserved the IP on the router (Trendnet TEW-691GR) for the MAC of the printer.
Tried to ping the idle printer IP from laptop: No. Restarted: Yes.
Tried to ping the idle printer from the desktop: No.
Removed the printer from the laptop, deleted the printer port, re-installed the printer using the manual IP port.
I've run out of ideas and have started drinking! Any suggestions?

Answer:Wireless printer drops off the network

Is the laptop dropping it, or is the router dropping it. That's my first real question even if you've manually set it routers like to just ignore things that have no traffic after a set amount of time. It doesn't appear there is a way to change the sleep mode settings in that model of printer though.

Anyhow if it's dropping off the nat table there may still be some way to tweak the router a little bit more to keep the connection alive. The printer itself has no setting or feature I can see that would help with this. (I can't believe I actually looked at a manual for something I don't even own.)

At any rate I tried man, but I don't see anything you missed, and as you already pointed out the other mentions of this online are all dead ends too.

I have had my wireless network running with only recurrent (monthly) glitches for nearly six months. Most of the glitches have involved my wife's PC dropping off the network unexpectedly. This problem occurred before I updated to Leopard earlier this month, but in the last two weeks the problem has been worse than ever; today I reinstalled the network and her pc still drops off almost every fifteen minutes (if she is not using it.) There are two computers on the network, a PowerMac G5 w/2Gb ram and her Toshiba laptop running XP Pro SP2. The network consists of an Airport Extreme card, 2 Airport Express Base Stations (main and remote), a Linksys Cable Modem and Hi Speed Internet access. The PowerMac is in a different room than the PC and although there is a clear sight connection between the doorways of the two rooms, the walls are 9" poured concrete. When the network is operating optimally, I get a reading on the PC that the signal strength is "Excellent."

I usually have to correct the dropped connection by clicking on Change Advanced settings button in Wireless Network Connection and opening the Wireless Network tab in the WZC dialogue box. I check the 13 digit WEP key and it is then accepted. When I launch IE, I get an error message indicating I'm not online, but if I highlight the URL and press enter, I arrive online.

Is this problem related to DHCP supplying an ip address?

Answer:XPsp2 PC drops from Airort Wireless Network

I doubt this has anything to do with DHCP, it's a connectivity issue. Have you tried changing channels on the router? I'd consider using WPA instead of WEP encryption, since you may also have a freeloader mooching your Internet access.

We have a netgear wireless network running with plusnet as the service provider. The router has an ADSL modem and even the PC with a direct connection is affected. The internet connection drops periodically requiring both PC's & the router to be rebooted before a connection can be re-established.

Answer:Wireless Network drops broadband connection

Try giving the two PCs fixed IP addresses, in the correct range, and see if that helps. For example, if the router's IP address is 192.168.10.1 then give the PCs different addresses in the same 192.168.10.xxx range.

Hi guys im new to this site and was recommended by a friend. I have spent the last 2 days looking through old posts before finally registering to ask for help, so here goes:

I have a home network with 2 PC's both running windows XP.
They are networked via 2 USB 802.11b wireles cards. The network is set up as an Adhoc network with file,printer and internet sharing running. I set up the network using the windows network set up wizard.
The main PC with internet connection is connected to blueyonder 1MB cable service via an external USB modem.

The network works great with an "excellent" signal strength at all times (upstairs to dowstairs). But...

Every now and again the remote PC will drop the connection. It seems totally random as it could be after 10 minutes or after 1 hour, Its very random. To reconnect i just disable then re-enable the network card (on remote PC) it connects instantly and all is well again, untill it decides to do this again. Does anyone have any suggestions to what could be causing this? It is not a huge problem but is iritable. It even happens when network/internet is in use. But may still be some type of power managment issue. But my hands are in the air and im open to all sugestions.

Thanks in advance for anyone who tries to help me out.
 

Answer:wireless adhoc network drops connection

Could be interference from microwaves, mobile phones, etc.
The paper "ABGs_of_Wireless_2.03.1.pdf" on http://www.netgear.com/products/wireless.html lists possible sources of interference for the various wi-fi standards.

The general advice about improving range at http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101160.asp may also be of some use in general troubleshooting.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi,
Have an office computer which bluescreens daily after a certain period of time, but then is fine for the rest of the working day.

BSOD shows CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION,
and bluescreenview shows plenty of ntoskrnl.exe+ 14e2a0

Any thoughts? I'm sure its relating to a driver but I have no idea how to go about finding out which one is most likely at fault.
Is there a website I can dump one of the DM log files into and have it bring up a list of outdated drivers?

Thanks for any help!

Answer:Daily BSOD after 1 hour, then fine for rest of day

Using more then 1 AV protection causes several problems, including performance problems, accessibility problems (errors when accessing a file for example) and possible bluescreens.

Remove either Avast or Bitdefender, I would suggest to remove Avast as Avast causes a lot of crashes.

Then you can use the MVPS HOSTS file, from http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm. That may or may not help.

I got two AOC monitors that have bad looking text. I have set clear type which did nothing. I have changed the contrast and brightness many times in windows and in the monitor setup. It did nothing. I have other monitors that look just fine. All are 1920. They are using VGA cables. Considering a screenshot won't work, I posted some photos to kind of compare. I have a fine monitor next to this one to compare. I can move a window onto it and the text looks fine. I can even alt+prntscr the bad monitor, paste it in photoshop, drag it to the good monitor and it looks fine. Everything is fine except letters.

Answer:Games keep crashing yet the rest of my system is fine

You probably never updated your powersupply as well. Unless that has around 430Watt or more, it may not be strong enough to handle the extra memory and SATA-disks.

Hi,
Have an office computer which bluescreens daily after a certain period of time, but then is fine for the rest of the working day.

BSOD shows CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION,
and bluescreenview shows plenty of ntoskrnl.exe+ 14e2a0

Any thoughts? I'm sure its relating to a driver but I have no idea how to go about finding out which one is most likely at fault.
Is there a website I can dump one of the DM log files into and have it bring up a list of outdated drivers?

Thanks for any help!

Answer:Daily BSOD after 1 hour, then fine for rest of day

Using more then 1 AV protection causes several problems, including performance problems, accessibility problems (errors when accessing a file for example) and possible bluescreens.

Remove either Avast or Bitdefender, I would suggest to remove Avast as Avast causes a lot of crashes.

Asus Zenbook, 16GB RAM, Intel i7, Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter, Driver version 7.35.317.3.

The wifi drops randomly, even when I'm in the middle of using the laptop (it's not idle, sleeping or hibernating). The wifi doesn't re-connect until I disable/re-enable it. All other devices connected to the wifi (phones, other laptops) work well, and do not drop wifi. This happens on all types of wifi - open, secured, 2.4Ghz, 5Ghz. Windows updates are the latest, driver is the latest. Adapter power management is turned off.

Are there any suggestions? Anyone who can point me in the right direction?

I have a new HP desktop running Vista 64 bit. It has Atheros abgn dualband network module. It connects but will soon (seconds, minutes, hours variable) drop the internet connection and say access is "Local only." Signal strength is still reported as "High." It may or may not reconnect automatically. Disconnecting and reconnecting usually works but it will soon drop again. Upon re-connecting the number of networks presented varies from none to 10. I am pretty sure the 10 are always there but they are not being detected.

HP support had me ensure the card was in ,etc. and wanted me to restore pc to factory settings. As I have had 2 new from factory that start with this problem I am not so keen to do this. This is second machine to have this exact issue.On first machine I re-installed driver with no effect. They replaced it because I was having other strange issues within my return window.

The computer sits 12" from an HP laptop also with Vista 64 bit, same software and configs, with Broadcom abgdraft-n wifi adapter. The laptop never has lost a connection nor have other computers on the network.

My router is Linksys wrt310n with WPA security. It is 30 ft line of site to the computer in question. I have 3 other computers connected via wireless (g or n) with no issues. I have tried tweaking channels, etc. but to no effect.

Answer:Wireless network connection drops internet - goes local only

Relevance 62.32%

Ok so I have had this problem for months, I really have tried everything I can think of but just don't get what is happening.

Set Up:
Speedtouch ADSL modem - DHCP server - 192.168.1.254
Linksys wireless router - connected to modem - 192.168.1.253
A PC is conncted to the wireless router via ethernet, and I use a laptop via wireless.
The Problem:

Mostly the laptop works fine over wireless. But whenever I do something over the local network (view files on the pc, try to back up laptop files to the pc, or even access laptop files from the pc) the laptop's wireless connection drops out within 30 sec. By 'drop out', the laptop still says it is connected but has no internet access. I cannot access the wireless router by IP address when this happens either.

The worst bit is that when I disconnect and try reconnecting to the wireless router, I can't - the only solution is to restart the
ADSL modem (rebooting the linksys router doesn't help..). Also, I do get disconnected and can't reconnect very occasionally when I'm just using internet (once a day max).

What I've Tried:
ipconfig/all - didn't see anything unusual
changing DHCP to the wireless router. Now this was weird - I couldn't get DNS working when I did this. Tried using openDNS but no luck, and when I decided to copy the modem's DNS settings, they were all set as 0.0.0.0. (???)
tried hours of googling for the problem, turning off all antivirus programs etc, lots... Read more

Answer:Wireless drops out when accessing local files on the network

my initaill reaction was to see if there are firmware updates avaible for the modem/router/ and a driver update for the pc network adapter
BUT when you said
When the laptop is close to the wireless router (i.e 5 bars instead of the normal 3), the problem doesn't seem to occur. Click to expand...

wasnt so sure - BUT it would be worth looking at the firmware and see what updates are available
If we could have makes and exact models of all devices - we should be able to post the information here

This only ever happens on wireless - the ethernet connected PC still works fine on the internet when the "drop out" occurs
correct ?

Lets try a few things -
When its working normally - make a note of all the status light on the router and modem
then when it "drops out" check those light and post any difference here

again when its working correclty lets see an ipconfig /all and various ping tests and post results here- see below
Now when it drops out repeat all the tests and save to something like notepad and when you have internet access post back here - make sure we know which is which

Also lets see what the wireless landscape looks like - post and image of the xirrus wireless tool - see details below

Hello,
I just recently installed a program on my laptop. It is called Precor Channel Editor (a work-specific program). It will not open. The spinning circle appears next to my mouse when I double-click it, stays for about 5 seconds, then disappears. The program doesn't ever open though.

The other programs on my computer seem to work fine, although I do remember having spent about 4 hours once before trying to get a program (C-SAFE) to work. Unfortunately, that was about 4 years ago and I have no idea what I did.

A few things I have tried:
Updated video drivers.
I originally had 7 Starter on my laptop, after speaking with tech support at Precor, they suggested getting Windows 7 Professional as that is what they use. I did, no difference.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled this program several times.
I also installed this program on my co-workers desktop just to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong/there wasn't anything wrong with the program. It worked fine on her desktop.
I have tried to run as administrator.
I opened task manager and watched it while I tried to open the program. The program name showed up in the processes for about 5-10 seconds, then disappeared.

Any ideas what might be going on? I have spoken to tech support at Precor several times and they don't know what the problem is either. It is a fairly new program, but they've never run into this issue with anyone else that downloaded it.

Thanks in advance!

Lydia

Hi everyone, for some reason I can access the internet on my Windows XP with my other user names no problem, but not with the main one I use anymore. I had a virus penetrate my computer (one of those fake antivirus), so I logged in Safe Mode as Administrator and ran Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyWare.

I'm having an issue where on my desktop port 80 runs very slow. Often websites will fail to load, or only partially load. I've tested directly to my modem, and with my router; the issue persist. Also when pinging websites I get results of around 180ms, but no packet loss. Normally I see around 16-32ms.

However, on my mobile phone desktop and mobile version websites load instantly, as expected.

(EDIT) Malware/virus scans are complete and have come back clean.

The problem has come and gone over the past couple weeks, but more recently it's been so bad I cannot even browse anymore. Realizing it was only port 80 being affected I decided to go through my VPN to test web traffic; sure enough, smooth as butter. Slightly slower because of the VPN, but everything was working perfectly.

Here's what I've done so far to try and correct the issue:
- Virus/Malware check.
- Tried various DNS servers such as Google or OpenDNS.
- Factory reset on router and modem.
- netsh winsock reset

Any thoughts?

I recently transported my (Acer Aspire 5100 series, Windows XP) laptop using a normal laptop-carrying bag (the laptop was upside down for around 4 hours). As a result the battery ran out and when I next attempted to turn it on using the power cord the laptop booted up just fine, but the screen will not turn on (nor does the built-in OrbiCam camera light at the top come on). I can hear the normal music the system makes when turning on and the cd drive will open normally....
I have tried rebooting numerous times as well as taking the battery/power cord out and pressing in the power button for 30+ seconds while holding the laptop upside down (which for some reason was a very common solution that came up on a Google search). Still no luck.
I use this laptop for my daily work, need it desperately, and would greatly appreciate a timely response.

Ok, so this is my problem. I have 4 devices that can connect to the network. The Main PC is wire connected to the wireless router which is connected to my modem. I have a laptop, a PS3, and another PC that can all connect to the internet with no problems through the wireless connection. At any given time, there are a minimum of 2 devices connected to the network. I rarely connect my PS3 to the network, and have recently kept my main PC shut down. My laptop is connected for as long as I have it in use, and the other PC is rarely connected. So I don't think it's a case of the network being overused.

The problem is that my main PC can no longer connect to the Internet. Since I bought my laptop, I stopped using my main PC for Internet, so I have no idea when it first started, but I estimate it's been almost 2 months.

I noticed that the problem seems to be with the Sending/Receiving of Packets. It sends out plenty, but receives barely any at all.

My PC is a Pentium 4, 1.7Ghz, 512MB DDRAM running Windows XP SP2

I have a D-Link DI-713P router, and a cable broadband connection.

I have tried the standard Repairing the connection, to no avail.

I have tried unplugging both the modem and the router, reconnecting them, then rebooting the PC, also to no avail.

The problem PC connects OK to the modem but not to the router? That implies a problem with the cable or the router's LAN port.

Some of these are like the situation described above, some are hotspot like.Where I run into problems is in corporate network situations. I'll have been provided with a UID and Password (which work, I verified them on my smartphone), see the WiFi signal I am to log on to and what is supposed to happen is: after I have made the connection to the WiFi spot,
my browser is to open automatically and bring me to a URL where I can enter the UID and Password after which I'll be connected. This does not happen. ORI should open my browser and attempt to access any url after which I am guided to a URL where I can enter the UID and Password
I'll see the WiFi point, make the connection, the browser does not open automatically and when I open it myself and try a URL (e.g. CNN.com), instead of requesting a UID and Password I just get the error 'server not found'
Needless to say this quite annoying and inconvenient. I sometimes desperately need my laptop in such environments and driving down the street to a McDonals where I can quickly do some stuff and coming back is just not working out.

Hi,

Wonder if anyone can help me?
I have just moved house and been given the internet details by the landlord.
The provider is Virgin and the landlord asked for my MAC addresses of each device to allow access to the internet and gave me the password.
I managed to connect on my iPhone and my housemate who is also running windows 7 off a laptop can also connect.
However the network does not even appear in my wireless list. Several other wireless networks in the area are being detected but not the one in the house. I know it's not hidden as I can connect on other devices.
I have tried a manual setup with the network name, encription etc and tick "allow connection even when network is hidden" but all to no avail.
Unfortunately I have no access to the router as the landlord has that next door, however seems strange it would be a router issue if the other devices connect fine.
I have been through all the settings with my housemate and ensured we have the same setup and am now thoroughly baffled and annoyed.
Anyone have similar issues and resolve them, or know enough about such things to help?

Thanks
Julieoh

Answer:Cannot detect one particular wireless network, others detecting fine

Make sure your landlord entered the MAC address correctly. Go over it with him again. Also, make sure you are recording the correct number. I've made mistakes in the past and recorded the incorrect number. From a command prompt, type; ipconfig /all
Look for the wireless adapters physical address.
I once wrote down the "ethernet" adapter's address and then spent hours trying to figure out why I couldn't connect.

We have a dlink dir635 router in our house which two computers connect to via wireless and two or three connect via a wire. The wireless network seems to disappear randomly. Sometimes it'll work for 10 minutes then go AWOL and sometimes it'll work for like a month or something with no problems.

This is only for the wireless users in the house - the network is 100% available to everybody on a wire.

Sometimes this can be fixed by resetting router. Sometimes not though - so I don't know for sure whether resetting the router does anything, it seems like an immediate cause and effect though when it does work.

After some configuring, i am connected to my home network, but i cant connect to the internet that is set up on the host computer. i have already checked all the settings on my computer, disabled the firewall (because i have windows xp sp2), and reset the router twice. i am just wondering what else could be the problem. could the local area connection have something to do with it? please help.

Answer:Wireless Network Works Fine, But Cant Get On Internet

How did you attempt to hook up so far? Did you try this:

start > control panel > network connections > wireless network setup wizard
~~~~~~
Or this on the host computer:

start > control panel . network connections > setup or change your work or home network setup
Run the wizard, choose "This computer connects directly to the internet. The other computers on my network connect to the internet through this computer"
~~~~~~~~

Wait a minute. Upon rereading your original post, I need to know what you are using a router for. Is it a wireless router? If so, then your new computer is not connecting to the internet through the 'host' computer, but rather through the router.

I shall await your answers.

My dad recently started having wireless internet trouble with his Dell Inspiron I6400. He will be connected to the wireless internet in our home and the computer will drop the wireless signal automatically. This happens approx every 2 minutes, but it will not do it on consecutive days or even weeks. This all started about 1.5 months ago, I have checked if his computer did updates around that time, thinking it is a glitch with a windows update, and there were none done during that time. The integrated wireless card is a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card. And we get our internet through Hughes Satellite which is routed through their modem and then plugged into our wireless router, which is a Linksys WRT54G. The wireless signal is controlled on the computer by the Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility, which I do not like, but when I uninstalled or disabled it, the wireless on the computer stopped working all together. I have changed the channels on the router, thinking it may be an interference issue, but that did no good. Also there are 3 other laptops in the house that use this same wireless signal, and this one is the only one that has problems with it.

If anybody has any suggestions or ideas to what it may be, please respond. I am an IT major, so please don't hold back on IT jargon.

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

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

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

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

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

I'm stuck, forced to use Mozilla. 3) The wireless router IS in my house and it IS encrypted. YES, I DO have the password key... 4) For the past couple weeks, if I am in a program like MOBSTERS by MYSPACE my computer will freeze. It happens every time, SHORTLY after going into the MISSIONS tab. I have to do a hard restart or it'll stay frozen for the entire day.5) On my wireless connection... IF/When I click "repair".... It will work for maybe 15-30 seconds MAYBE!! and then it will restart my computer. 6) I can't afford to pay for help, but I do have a few rare coins I would happily exchange for some help here. I am new to this and don't understand how I will be contacted or how I will know if someone is trying to reach me. Call me if you wish. Or email.

Guys, can someone help me out on trying to resolve an issue I'm having on my network.

I have 3 Main PCs.

One in the Gameroom--Media Server (Windows 7 64bit, onboard Gigabit Nic). MSI AMD 780G Chipset.

One in the Office--(Windows XP MCE, INTEL Gigabit PCI)

One in the Living Room--HTPC (Windows 7 32bit, onboard Gigabit Nic) GIGABYTE AMD 780G Chipset.

I just upgraded all my systems to new hard drives in hopes of archiving all DVDs onto the server and streaming them from there to the other machines.

All connections are working fine and I can move around files between machines no problem.

My issues I can get 70-80 MB/s between the HTPC and the Server.

The most I can get out of my Office and the Server is 37-40MB/s.

The 2 OS drives in the Office and HTPC machines are Identical..Samsung F3 drives. The drives on the server I'm sending files to are Samsung F4 drives.

I just did fresh OS intalls on these drives when I placed them into service.

I used all windows drivers except for the Intel NIC in which I used the supplied drivers for it.

Can anyone tell me why my XP machine can't pull the same mustard as the other machine? It really has me puzzled.

Thanks,
Mike

Linksys PCI G Wireless Adapter has stopped working after a semester at college. The network was wired there, so my desktop was plugged into it for 3 months, but the adapter itself was safe.
It worked before I left for college, and I just got back, set everything up again, and it is detected in device manager, I enabled, disabled, reinstalled drivers after removing the old ones, and tried installing and uninstalling it.

When at college, because this is a Vista machine, I had to update my drivers that manage my wired connection, because they were not working when I first got to college. I was wondering if this may be the cause of the problem.

I have recently purchased a new laptop (less than a week ago) and since purchase I have had the same recurring problem. Coincidentally, my wireless router is brand new also, and so it makes the situation even more difficult to eradicate. My laptop connects to the router wirelessly without a hitch, however, every five minutes or so, a small yellow exclaimation mark appears alongside the 'connection symbol' and it says there is either 'No Internet Access', or 'No Network Access', despite the fact it is connected to the wireless and has a full strength connection. However, my brother's laptop connects and surfs the web seamlessly, as well as the family desktop PC and various mobile devices. I am reluctant to return the laptop back to the store, please HELP???????????

I recently helped my girlfriend move up to college. She's living in an apartment complex that provides internet for it's residents through several ethernet ports spread throughout their apartment. I set up a wireless connection for her through one in the living room and initially it was working fine. Initially I purchase a relatively cheap ($30) Belkin wireless G router from Walmart and set up the connection and it worked great...for about a day or so. We tried all the tricks of soft resets and hard resets and nothing worked so I eventually decided I purchase a better router on Newegg. I purchased the LINKSYS WRT54GL due to it's superb ratings on Newegg. I set up the connection a couple days ago in the same location. I secured it, did everything and it worked great...for about a day or so. She lost connection again. I believe (I'm not there to see what the computer is saying) it just kept attempting to identify the network, but it never would and therefore she couldn't get the internet. I had her do a soft reset on the router again and it didn't work. I had her hook up wired into the router and that also didn't work. I finally had her unplug the main ethernet connection from the back of the router and plug it directly into her computer (this is the one that goes from the wall to the router) and voila! It works. So there is obviously data coming through the port in the wall, but there seems to be an issue with that data getting through the ro... Read more

Answer:Wireless Network Loses Connection After Working Fine For a Day

I'd like to see this when you're connected directly to the wall jack, then again after a factory reset of the router and connecting to a wired connection through the router. We'll deal with the wireless after we figure out the wired issues.

I'm running Windows 7 and uninstalled the driver for my wireless network adapter (Atheros AR9285) because it wasn't working properly. Now, the adapter won't work AT ALL.

If I plug in to my router directly I can browse my workgroup, access all shares without a problem. When I disable my onboard LAN card and enable wireless, I can't browse my workgroup or even ping the other computers by name or IP on my network.

I can browse the internet wirelessly, ping the router and the IP and subnet are the same when I'm using wireless or wired connection.

I removed and added client for MS networks, file and print sharing, removed all wireless security from my router and it still does not work. I don't know if its my Dell wireless card or an OS problem and don't know what else to try.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:cannot browse home network through wireless, wired works fine

On the pc that giving you trouble open this:

click on start
click on run
type: cmd
type: route print

See if it can see your network or your router when you connect wired or wireless?

click on start
click on run

scroll down for wireless zero configuration make sure that's enabled

also look for network connections and make sure that's enabled
also computer browser is enabled

I cannot successfully work via the wireless; it works like a rollercoaster, and the connection is excellent.  I have 2 other Acers 4 years old, using intel wireless chips, and they are connected until I disconnect.  The T400 wireless is failing, so now what?  The ThinkVantage diagnostics on this specific device run all passing. Very, very irritating.

Answer:T400 Intel wireless -excellent connection- drops/connects/ drops... horrible

I had this same problem with my T400.  The funny thing was that it only presented itself when connecting to the wireless network at work.  My home network always connected perfectly.  WPA security was used on both networks, however my home network uses AES encryption, while the work wirless was using TKIP. The work router was changed recenly and now runs on AES encryption, and everything seems to be fine now.  There have also been quite a few updates for the Realtek WLAN mini PCI express adapter installed in my machine since I last tried to connect wirelessly to the work network.  I have also uninstalled the ThinkVantage Access Connections Application since then, and used the Windows Network and Sharing Centre to set up my network connections.  I'm not sure which of these has solved the problem, but I hope this helps. My Machine Details:-T4002764-CTOWindows Vista Business  I have just re-installed Access Connections to see if I can rule that one out.  Everything works fine with it now, however it is an updated version to one I was using.  Make sure you have the latest updates for your machine from both windows Update and ThinkVantage System Update.

Hello!

I'm a software consultant and as such travel around to various client sites. At one site I'm working on now my computer now fails to connect to their wireless (it is one of those that says "Unsecured' but once you connect and launch a browser you are prompted for credentials.) I've been successfully connecting with this PC and this network for over a year, but for the past 2 weeks it fails everytime and when I try Troubleshooting it gives me the standard "Wireless Network Connection does not have a valid IP configuration" message.

My first thought when this began was that they had a hardware problem and that their router was failing to assign IP addresses. However, others sitting in the same cube area as me are able to connect to it successfully and I have not once succeeded in two weeks now. Also, I have no problems at all connecting to OTHER wireless networks (home, other clients, Starbucks, a wireless hotspot a co-worker set up here to unblock me the other day, etc.)

I have not found anything in searching online that helps me to determine how to troubleshoot this since it is only related to one single network.

Any ideas?

Did your ISP give you this router such as your leasing it etc? If so contact them for a replacement.If you own this router then I'd try factory reset button to set it back to factory default. If that doesn't cure this then buy a new router. They are pretty cheap these days.Your router could have been hacked, the access denied is strange!

Friend bought an Acer laptop E5-575-54SM Intel i5-6200U; Windows 10 Home; 4GB RAM; 1TB; WiFi featuring MU-MIMO.

When I connected it to his WiFi network it was very slow. I ran a speedtest. It only gets 1 Mbps where it should be 20 Mbps.

I connected my iPhone to the network but got the same results. So, I assumed it was a problem with the WiFi. However, a different laptop (Toshiba) does get the 20 Mbps speed via WiFi.

Well, that is just not possible.
Since my iPhone was also slow, I know the problem is with the network.
But, since the old Toshiba laptop connects fine, the DSL modem and WiFi router are okay.

Two days later, the new Acer was running fine on the network, only to come to a crawl today.

I am stumped.

I've been using the Windows 7 Ultimate release candidate as an evaluation copy for a while now with no problems. I have an ATI radeon mobility X1600 graphics card in my laptop and I'm using an external monitor through my laptop's DVI port. I bought a product key for Windows 7 professional and therefore had to reinstall that version because I'm using Ultimate as the evaluation copy. I have each version on its own partition so I can switch back and forth between the two.

The problem is that the newly installed windows professional copy will not recognize my ATI graphics card and I can't use my external monitor. It has the standard windows VGA adapter drivers installed. I've installed and run the ATI file i downloaded off their site, '9-9_beta_win7_32_dd_CC', and this accomplishes nothing. I looked in device manager on the working ultimate version and the card is installed correctly so I copied all of the drivers and files it says its using and then tried to update the driver for the standard windows VGA adapter and it says it can't find any better drivers than the current ones.

I remember initially having this same problem when I first installed the Win7 Ultimate RC several months ago but I have no clue how I was able to get it to work... Any ideas?

Hello...
I want to set up a wireless network but, since I?ve never done this before, I?d appreciate some guidance.
I?ll shortly be buying a new PC with Windows 7 (64-bit system) and also a similar laptop.
Right now, I?m on XP Home.
Currently, I have a wireless router, but since I?ve no wireless card in my present computer, I connect to the web only through my Ethernet lead.
Getting my router to change to ?wireless setting? is easy and I know how to do that.
Not being familiar with Win7, though, I think I?m right in saying it has a wizard for taking you through wireless network setup. Yes/No?
So, here?s my query and forgive my ignorance on this:

Do I set up the wireless network FIRST via Win7, then set my router to wireless?

OR

Set up my router first, then go to Win7 for setup of wireless network?
Since I'll want to add the laptop to the newly created network, how do I do this?

Any help or suggestions welcome.
Many thanks

Answer:Setting Up Wireless Network with Win7 (64-bit)

Not sure what you mean by setting your router to wireless, mine runs both wireless and wired connections at the same time, and most do. But if you have to, set it wireless first and ensure that it has connected to the internet.
Then turn on both new computers and let them do whatever they have to. When finished, and assuming both have built in wireless adaptors, go to the bottom right hand corner where an icon will be flashing orange, click on this icon and it will reveal any networks that it can see. Click on yours and then click the connect button in the same dialogue. Enter the passphrase that should be on the bottom of your router and that should be it. Do the same with both machines and you have your network.
If the router has to be configured first you will have to contact your provider for the access IP address and password.
Get back of you need help with this.

Answer:Problems with wireless network in win7

If you says you are online but the browser won't connect it usually has to do with the TCP/IP stack or winsock, you can try resetting winsock and the TCP/IP stack and see if that helps.



Follow these steps to use the reset command to reset TCP/IP manually:To open a command prompt, click Start and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) the following command in the Open box and then press ENTER:

You should also check the network you are connecting too and see what type of security it uses.

Hi,
I have been using a d-link wireless access point for some time now, with a worldbook 1tb networked HD plugged into it, which i used to access/share files wirelessly.

Since upgrading to windows 7 i can no longer access my hard disk files, just not showing in network places. this is the same on any instance of windows 7.. but works fine with an xp machine i recently tested with.

is there any settings in windows 7 that i can adjust here.. nic or otherwise?

thanks guys

Answer:Wireless network storage and Win7

first of all do you know the ip address of the network drive?
Have you tried creating a shortcut that points directly to that ip?

This started happening after receiving a new Modem from Talktalk.
I have 2 laptops with XP and 1 laptop with Vista connected to the same modem. The 2 XP laptop's connections are fine but the one with Vista cannot stay connected if left alone for a short period of time, it turns into Local Only and stops loading web pages until you try surfing the internet again. Any form of keeping the connection downloading something i.e. downloading content from web pages, playing an online game or downloading a file will keep the Vista connection connected until the download stops.
I have unchecked the power saving option in my Network Adapter in Device Manager, that is not an issue.
Also the internet on my iPhone is the same as the Vista connection. It plays up as well.
Thanks for any help.

Answer:Vista connection drops if left idle for 20+ seconds, XP laptop connections fine

If you haven't already solved your Vista problem - you could have a look at this. Am assuming you are talking about wireless connection.
Check that your Vista machine has the same security settings as your router - the IP addresses need to be the same.
Check to see if your wireless network adapter needs updating - go to device manager to do this
Check the TCP/IP protocol settings - look at this article
If IPv6 is checked uncheck it leaving just IPv4 checked.

The built-in WLAN in my laptop stopped working, so I bought a USB WLAN adapter. I quickly realized that Windows 7 does not share wireless network connections between different adapters. So my questions are:

1. Is there a way to make Win7 share wireless connections across adapters?
2. Failing that, is there a way to port connections from one adapter to another?
3. Is there a way to export/import wireless networks to a human-readable file (e.g. XML) for back up and future usage?

Thanks!

Answer:Win7 wireless adapter and network problems

it should have seen the adapter and worked - the reason it does not - may be why your built in wlan does not work

lets see an ipconfig /all and device manager and xirrus screen shot


------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

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

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

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

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

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

I'm setting up a laptop for an elderly relative. I've created a wireless network to allow him to access a printer wirelessly, but he does not have Internet access over this network (or at all...yet!) The problem is that whilst Win7 will let me connect to the network, it displays a warning triangle down near the clock to indicate there's "No Internet Access". I can't find a way to tell Windows that there shouldn't be: this network isn't intended to provide Internet access. Can anyone tell me how I can do this, please?Thanks,Gary

I seem to be having nothing but problems lately when it comes to wireless connections. I tried microsoft's resources and just found post after post of the same types of problems as I have with no answers that worked. Then I remembered here and the amazing help I recieved from TerryNet so here I am again!

I'm staying with family while I recover from a heart attack and the room I'm staying in the signal was too weak to connect using my laptop. I borrowed my dad's usb wireless adapter so I could leave it sitting outside of the room and recieve a good signal to my desktop. Everything has worked with no problems at all for 3 weeks until last night. I finally decided to do the windows update my computer kept reminding me to do. I use Windows 7 Ultimate and did the priority updates and the optional for my hardware and such. I left the computer running and went to do some cleaning. When I came back it said to restart, so I did, then got the message that some updates had failed to install and it was reverting back to the previous state. When the computer did load there was no internet. I opened my network connections and instead of seeing the usual wireless network I suddenly had a sprint network on the list, the broadband icon that's been there forever, and the LAN connection I wasn't using but no wireless network at all.

I uninstalled the updates it showed as having installed but still no network. I disabled and re enabled the usb wireless. Just in ca... Read more

Hey all!

Today I installed windows 7 on my fresh hdd. It's been going great so far, and I even managed to get the wireless network up and running.

That is, until I shut down my PC and re-booted... Now when I try to connect (through that list of networks on the lower right), it just keeps telling me: "unable to connect" (or something along that lines since I have a Dutch install).

The Troubleshooting utility is of no help AT ALL. It just says it "cant identify the problem"...

I am sure the WEP-code is correct, I am sure the router is running correctly and all, because it worked about half an hour ago!!!

What is going on? Can anyone please help me?

PS:
Im typing this from my dad's Mac, with which connecting to the network was a breeze. If Apple can do this, why cant Microsoft?

EDIT:
Well now it * is * working, but I wonder for how long =/ I am afraid itll "not-work" anymore when I reboot my pc...

Both would give the same results but a USB device would be easier to install plus you could use it elsewhere if need be (whichever you choose make sure it's win7 and wireless n compatible

My wifes new laptop came with a free windows 7 upgrade. Last night I did the upgrade and it has killed the wireless network adadpter. I have upgraded my own PC a month or 2 ago with zero problems, but this is a nightmare. Downloaded new drivers from the Samsung site (R519) but they error on install. Cannot roll them back (no option to do so) also System restore fails to go back to any restore point.
Apart from the wireless problem the programs folder shows up as empty, I know they are in the windows.old folder but how do I get them back where they should be?
Any help on either problem would be appreciated.

I changed my ISP to "Clear.com" and now one, seldom used, Win7 computer will not connect to the wireless network. I have two other desktops hardwired and two laptops on the wireless that work fine. The two laptops are in the same room as the Clear 'modem/router', while the Win7 box is not, if that matters. The Win7 box worked in that location when I was on the cable and had a separate wireless router.

The box that will not connect, does show that the wireless connection is available, and the adapter shows to be working properly in Device Manager.

Oh, and Windows Troubleshooter says it cannot fix it.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Solved: Win7 computer will not connect to wireless network

Make sure that you are not locking yourself out via MAC Address filtering.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

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.

Answer:Wireless network card drivers not working with win7

What was the nature of the prior board failing? Struck by lightning, power supply failure, etc?Its quite possible that the wireless adapter is bad, damaged by the prior build that the motherboard died on.If you need wireless networking and don't want to bother with a card. You can pick up a USB Wireless Adapter pretty cheap these days such as at Newegg, Tiger Direct, or another online store that sells computer parts and accessories. I even added one of these to an old Dell laptop that had a single USB 1.1 slot, which ran Windows XP SP2 and the wireless adapter allowed for this laptop to have wifi. These same adapters can also be used in desktop computers to connect them to a wireless network. My daughters Core 2 Duo E4500 system for example is connected via a 5 year old Netgear USB network adapter to Wireless-G because I didn't want to drill holes in the walls and floor/ceiling to route Cat5e cable.For less than $15 these USB network adapters can be picked up online and they work well in the home. If you were connected to wifi from a specific location in your home prior, they work fine, however due to their compact design they lack the range of other better USB adapters or Internal Card Adapters due to antenna length and transmission strength. My Pentium III Dell Laptop with the USB NIC I was able to see open networks to connect to that showed 1 bar strength in a college town for example, but while the adapter was able to see the wireless router/access points, it wa...

Out of the blue one day, my computer running Win7 decided it was going to stop connecting to my network. Since then, I've tried a variety of things I'll outline below. It's incredibly frustrating and I'm at the limit of my knowledge around this, and before taking it somewhere, I'm hopeful the community here can give me some guidance. I'm also not opposed to having to buy a new network card if that winds up being the ultimate solution.

Current situation: Windows can see my wireless network, as well as the others nearby. However, when connecting, it is unable to establish a connection to it. One oddity here is that it prompts me for the network password (which I have not changed) and even with putting that in, it still can't connect.
