Answer: wireless & Ethernet conflict

What conflict are you having?

I run my laptop wirelessly most of the time as well but occasionally connect a Ethernet cable and everything works fine.

Ever since installing a new operating system, Windows 98 SE over Windows 98 provided via HP, my USB hasn't been functioning. I used an online guide, and found that my USB Controller (the SiS 7001) has been sharing an IRQ with my Linksys EtherFast NIC. I've had no problems with the NIC. This hadn't happend before I installed the new OS. I tried changing the IRQ manually in device manager, but it wont let me. My motherboard sucks, and I dont think any decent BIOS updates are available. I've looked arond in there and found only options for reserving IRQs for ISAs. I also don't have any PCI slots left. So, my ultimate question is, how in the world can I separate these devices off IRQ 11 and get my USB to function?

-Thanks

Hi,
Sorry if this is a question already covered, have had a search and can't find it..
I purchased a Huawei repeater to extend my wifi network, works fine with my tablet, gdaughters ipad etc, but my pc is connected to the router by Ethernet and immediately loses internet access when the repeater fires up. Is it possible to have the desktop on ethernet plus tablet on wifi at the same time?

Answer:WiFi / ethernet conflict

Yes it is possible. Does your computer have a radio network card or facility, if so disable the wifi on it so as not to conflict.

After reformatting my PC, I recieved several conflicts in the device manager which disabled me from connecting to the Internet through another pc. I can't find out what the hell is wrong. I've downloaded, burned and ran several drivers but still can't fix the ethernet controller conflict. Its stopping me from connecting to the Internet. I can't find my network adapter card either.

ok. here's the deal. i have 2 notebooks. and a dsl internet connection. i recently bought a switch so as to connect both laptops to the internet simultaneously. but it doesn't seem to work. i checked the other threads and the comments posted for similiar problems that others have.but the solutions don't seem to work for me.
i can only connect one notebook at a time. if i connect the other, usually a "ip conflict" balloon pops up. so HELP!
 

Answer:ip conflict with ethernet switch

Because you have residential service which will only give you one single public IP. By putting in a switch, you are causing both laptops to request an IP via DHCP. Frankly, I'm surprised you're even getting both laptops to get an IP from the DHCP server. You need a router which does NATing to allow simultaneous network connectivity for both laptops not a switch.

Hello to all. I have bought an Ideapad Z710 with an i5-4000M, 8GB of RAM and a GT745M a couple of weeks ago and I'm quite happy with it but... I have ran into some problems.After using a USB 2.0 to ethernet port for connecting on my office network since connecting via standard ethernet port on my Z710 was impossible (yellow mark on the network icon, no internet via ethernet BUT somehow I had internet via the USB 2.0 to ethernet adapter WITH yellow mark on the network icon STILL and no yellow marks in the Device Manager), I discovered that when I uninstalled the USB 3.0 drivers in order to update them with the new ones from the Intel website (v. 3.0.1.41), everything was working! The yellow exclamation mark from the network icon disappeared, I plugged the ethernet cable on the standard ethernet port, internet was working!I was very happy about how things were turning out and I thought to myself that I was very close to solving this problem once and for all. So I moved on and installed the new USB 3.0 drivers and restarted but...BANG!Yellow exclamation mark on the network icon AGAIN but with fully functional internet this time! Let me remind you that I couldn't connect to the internet via ethernet port before. Device Manager looks happy also (no yellow question or exclamation marks there either). But do you have any idea how to remove this stinky yellow exclamation mark from my network icon on the left bottom of my desktop?! I can't stand watching it! Thanks... Read more

I am running Windows XP Pro. I have a PCI dail up modem and an integrated ethernet adapter. Both work fine and I can connect to the internet with either one. However, my dail up modem will only establish a connection if the ethernet adapter is disabled in the Device Manager. If the ethernet adapter is enabled (even if there is no cable plugged in to it) the dial up modem will dial and attempt to establish a connection with my ISP, then after a while it will finally say "verifying username and password," then a little while after that it will report an error that it "can not connect to the remote computer." Also, if the ethernet adpater is disabled and I am connected to the internet with the dial up modem, then enable the ethernet adapter, my internet connection stops working and then after a while the dial up modem will disconnect. Does anyone know how I can use both my dial up modem and ethernet adapter at the same time so that I can share my internet connection over a network? Thanks.

Hi All,

I have read through a lot of other posts but can't find a solution related to my issue.

I have a Dell XPS laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate I want to use for bridging the Ethernet connection to it's WiFi connection. WiFi connects perfectly to the net. I enabled ICS on the WiFi and then bridged the WiFi and Ethernet connections.

WiFi still connects to the net fine on the XPS, but when I connected another PC to the laptop via Ethernet, it only shows a 169.254.116.152 IP address on the PC and throws a Network Error "Windows has detected an IP address conflict." It looks like for some reason DHCP on the XPS is not assigning an IP to the PC to bridge the Ethernet connection to the WiFi on the XPS.

When I do "ipconfig /renew" on the PC it says "An error occurred while renewing interface local area connection... The DHCP client has obtained an IP Address that is already in use on the network... "

I am a fairly technical person having built computers and network for the last 20 years, I've been trying multiple solutions for hours and reading everything I can, but this one has me stumped.

Thanks in advance for any assistance

I have a laptop running Vista Home Premium, which connects fine to every wireless network I've tried except at one particular local coffee house chain. At both locations I keep getting an IP address conflict error, and cannot get full connectivity. I believe that this has something to do with Vista because my old laptop, running XP, connected fine, and because no one else there ever has a problem connecting, and I've yet to find one running Vista.

I've tried repair and diagnose, ipconfig to manually reset the ip address, restarting the computer, reinstalling the drivers for the wireless card, giving myself a static ip, and all of the above with firewall on and off. Needless to say, the coffee house staff are not very knowledgeable about the workings of their network.

The network is one of those where you connect and then have to enter a password into a splash page that loads when you first open your browser. I can't load the page in either IE or Firefox.

Any ideas about what might be causing this? Any other information I can give that would help?

Thanks in advance.

But I would have thought that I should only need one on each but it would be the same??Any advice please?

Answer:WIRELESS CONFLICT

If both computers have simultaneous internet access via the router, then they are "networked" and there is nothing wrong with your connections. The "1394 Connection" is Firewire. It has nothing to do with your interent access and, although it can be used to network two computers, it is unusual to do it this way. Ignore the "Internet Gateway" entry, which should show as "Connected", unless there is a problem. Your actual *network adapters* with which you connect to the router are the "Local Area Connection" (for a "wired" connection) and the "Wireless Network Connection" (obviously for a "wireless" one). A computer can have one or more of either type installed.As regards "File & Printer Sharing", make sure you have at least one folder "shared" in each computer, by right clicking and selecting the Sharing & Security option. Any firewall software in either computer needs to be configured to allow access to the networked computers, which may involve adding their IP addresses in a "trusted" section. An incorrectly set up firewall is the most common reason for computers not communicating in a network. SETTING UP A NETWORK PRINTER:1) Connect the printer to the "client" PC, as though it were to be used with that computer, and install it. This ensures that it has all the necessary software/drivers on board. 2) Reconnect it to the "host" PC and, in its Properties, set it as "shared". In the client's "My Network Places" (or Network Neighborhood), the printer should then appear as a sha... Read more

ok, so i set up my g/fs router for her the other day, and it works all nice and snazzy. But for some stupid reason, whenever she is connected to the wireless with her powerbook, i cant get a complete connection with my laptop (see sig). And whenever im connected to the wireless, she cant connect. When i cant get one of the computers to connect, it can still see the wireless, it says its connected, then trying to acquire netowork address and then sits there and thinks for a while. I thought maybe it ran out of IP's to hand out or something, nope, its got over 100 of them to give out, i dont know whats going on? Ive never had this problem before. Also, when Im connected, her bro with an HP laptop can connect just fine, but same story, cant connect when her powerbook is connected. WTF is going on here people?

When just one of the computers is connected, does it receive a public IP?

If it gets a public one, you've got your router set up wrong. Make sure that the ethernet cord from the internet modem is plugged into the 'Internet' port or the 'WAN' port of the router.

I'm not sure whats wrong if you get a private one.

Hi, hopefully this is posted in the right forum section.

First problem I'm having is that I'm having issues creating a successful LAN. All three PCs are on the same workgroup, one is win7 and the others are Winxp. One PC is connected to the wireless router (d-link DI-524) and the others are connected to a switch in a different room. Two PCs can communicate to each other but the third isn't communicating to one particular PC but it does to the other.

Second problem I'm having is that I'm having trouble getting ICS to work on one machine that has wireless connection to the internet through a second wireless router(DI-524 also). I want to share it with the other two PCs over the LAN. As soon as I enable LAN connection, the internet browser stops working although I can still ping the internet. I assigned the LAN connection a static IP and left DNS, and gateway blank. The IP on the second wireless router with internet connection is 192.168.0.1. The IP on the first wireless router is 192.168.1.1.

If I remove the first wireless router from the LAN and just use the switch I am able to network all the PCs together but still cannot get ICS to work.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I'm trying to configure a wireless bridge to be used for our voicemail system. I have a Linksys WAP54G access point and I have tried to configure a Linksys bridge, but ran into a peculiar IP conflict problem. Even though I have it set up to use a static IP, when the bridge connects to the access point it conflicts with my Windows AD server static IP. I returned the Linksys bridge thinking that something was wrong with the unit, and purchased a SMC bridge, but I'm getting the same problem. I'm starting to think it's the access point, but I have no idea why it would be doing that. I have been able to connect to the AP using other wireless devices with no problems.

Hi,

I am using a Webramp 700s Firewall/Router and a D-Link DI-524 Wireless Router (as well as the DWL-G710 Range Extender & DWL-G510 Wireless Nic).

I am only connecting two systems as of the moment. One is a wired connection to my D-Link Router, and the other is a wireless connection to the same.

Webramp IP: 192.168.1.251
DI-524 IP: 192.168.1.101 (wireless router)
DI-710 IP: 192.168.1.102 (range extender)

A cable connects the DI-524's WAN port to one of the webramps free LAN ports. Both have DHCP enabled (webramp field: 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.100, AND DI-524 field: 192.168.1.103 - 192.168.1.104).

Both systems on the network obtain an IP address automatically via DHCP. My wired connection works flawlessly. I am able to connect on my wireless system, but I keep getting these annoying popup error messages that say there is an IP address conflict on the network.

Encryption is enabled, and I am unable to see anybody else (snoopers) being issued any IPs.

I previously had the wireless devices all at their default addresses within 192.168.0.x, but that had the same problems. This issue is really frustrating, and your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hey, I'm having a problem with using USB network adapters, I've tried three different ones and they all end up shutting off my computer every few hours. It is some form of USB conflict I can't seem to fix.

I tried switching to a PCI card, but since I happen to be in a corner in the house having the wireless adapter on top of the desk is the only thing that seems to get me any sort of signal. But the USB Adapters all persist in shutting me down. Just a hard-shutoff with no warning, all of a sudden bam, its just powered off.

Right now I'm using a Belkin N+ USB Adapter. Any ideas on how to correct this issue? I have several other USB devices plugged in as well: KVM switch, external hard drive, webcam, mouse+keyboard.

Answer:USB Wireless Causing Conflict

It appears that the USB Wireless adapter doesn't have an updated driver: Windows 7 Compatibility Center search results - Belkin N+ USB Adapter. You can check with the manufacturer as well to see if one is on the way!

Hello, i'm using windows vista ultimate. I use a wireless connection to connect to the internet and my ISP's ESSID is "dlink", it's a wep encrypted connection.
The problem is, there are 2 access points with the ESSID "dlink" in my region, because it's a wireless DSL company that provides services to clients near me.
In my wireless connections, there's only one access point called dlink.
I solved this problem with Linux, by manually entering the access point's MAC ADDRESS. How can i do that with Vista ? Thanks in advance.

So I'm having a problem with USB network adapters, I've tried two different ones and they both end up shutting off my computer every few hours. It is some form of USB conflict I can't seem to fix.

I tried switching to a PCI card, but since I happen to be in a corner in the house having the wireless adapter on top of the desk is the only thing that seems to get me any sort of signal. But the USB Adapters all persist in shutting me down. Just a hard-shutoff with no warning, all of a sudden bam, its just powered off.

Right now I'm using a Belkin N+ USB Adapter. Any ideas on how to correct this issue? I have several other USB devices plugged in as well: KVM switch, external hard drive, webcam, mouse+keyboard. None of these have shown any issues at all except for a few times (but only when the Wireless adapter is plugged in).

Belkin does have support for Windows 7 in their latest drivers for this device which are here: http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/316/kw/N+ USB/r_id/166

But... nonetheless. This seems like since this isn't the only device that has done it maybe it is more a motherboard or windows 7 issue than a driver issue with the wireless adapter.

One thing I had to do with the PCI adapter I installed was turn off the two "Homegroup" services under computer management, so that happens to be off. I've also unchecked "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" under the Power Manage... Read more

Answer:Windows 7 USB Conflict with Wireless

That symptom indicates you likely have a driver issue. I have three Windows 7 machines here, and none of them have any problems with multiple USB devices, including several different brands of wireless adapters.

I'd have to believe this is either the motherboard drivers (if this is a general USB issue), or the device drivers if it just happens with a specific wireless adapter.

is it possible for my broadband router and home heating systems to conflict with each other?
The broadband router is downstairs and the wireless home heating box is upstairs in the study where i get no network signal on my laptop
can they be a conflict preventing the broadband signal connections when near to the wireless heating control box?
if so what can i do?

Answer:have i got a wireless conflict issue

Wireless and frequency connections have improved considerably over the years, but like most things, they can and do have the odd moments taking a number of things like location and signal strength or weakness into consideration.
It might pay to provide details of the router you are using, because this might provide possible options that are available?.

guys I need someone more expert than I on network routers. i'm lame

I have the older venerable WRT54GL.. two of them running same edition of DD-WRT. very fine service over the years. I also have a linksys/csco wireless N router. I have a cable modem with a 4 port board, so I can simultaneously connect both physically, but have not yet gotten both online reliably, simultaneously.

I have changed the fundamental IP of the newer router so that they do not have that conflict: left the old one at default 192.168.1.1 and the new at 192.168.1.3
Since I like speed, we mainly use the N router, but I'm curious as to why they conflict. If I connect to the older router wirelessly, I can get internet access for a brief time then it loses its connection. If I then go back to the other one [no resets/reboots/anything] I'll be fine.

I assume that the older router is being disturbed by the new one somehow but I don't know how to resolve that. can someone help?

the longer-term goal is to get one of the DD-WRT routers to subtend the N router as a client, or client bridge, or something..... so I can spread coverage over a broader physical area, and so that I can deliver some wired goodness to the home theater setup. so far no luck on that, and I figure the first thing to resolve is what I lead with above.

I have a wired client server network, and I want to implement wireless access. Currently, the network is a mess. The network consists of a single server and multiple hubs setup around the building that then connect to the ports in each room, the typical setup. Wireless setup has been attempted by placing wireless routers throughout the building, but by no means have they been properly configured. The routers' DHCP servers have been left on and are now creating problems because they are trying to assign IP's to the wired connection. I assume by turning off the routers' DHCP server that the server should take over, but then it appears that the wireless computers can't establish an IP. The routers being used are mostly Linksys, and there are a few D-Link. Is it okay to use a normal home network router? What is the correct way to configure the router so that it merely broadcast a wireless signal and doesn't conflict with the DHCP server? Would access points make more sense? If you haven't deduced yet, I am not in charge of the network I am just the one looked to to find the problem. The person who is in charge knows very little besides what they have learned in a few classes and they are hardly ever around. I myself know only basic networking. That meaning not much more than what you learn for A+ certification and from home and small network experience. Any help or suggestions that could set me on the right track would be much appreciated.

I've tried installing two different wireless PCIE cards in a Precision T1700 minitower in both the full length PCIE slot and the X1 slot and have run into the system crashing after a few minutes.  It will either hang or the video will start flashing random colors on screen.  Without the card everything runs fine. 
I plan on installing a dedicated video card as well but haven't picked it up yet but it will likely be a Nvidia 1050 based card (not that that should make a difference).  Hopefully this will work out differently (the video card install that is).
As for the wireless PCIE card, I've noticed that the IRQ is shared with the onboard video (first install), and now the High Definition Audio Controller (second install after uninstall), which is what I'm assuming is the problem.  Symptoms were the same in both cases.
Is there any way to change the IRQ manually to prevent the conflict in Windows 10 Professional?
Thanks for the assistance in advance (hopefully).

Answer:Wireless PCIE card IRQ conflict??

Theok65,In the bios under the System Configuration heading you will see the Serial Port option. It is this option determines how the built-in serial port operates. It lets you avoid resource conflicts between devices by disabling or remapping the address of the port. The settings are:Disabled - The serial port function is no longer applicable COM1 - Port s configured at 3F8h with IRQ 4. COM2 - Port s configured at 2F8h with IRQ 3. COM3 - Port s configured at 3E8h with IRQ 4. COM4 - Port s configured at 2E8h with IRQ 3. Default setting: COM1.You can possibly free up more Irq`s by disabling hardware devices in the bios of the motherboard. Examples of things to turn off in the bios with safety are.LPT, printer ports, com ports. Any reference to floppy drives disable them, and the floppy controller found in the bios menus as well as theSerial ports of the motherboard. You can them remove the driver for the hardware in conflict restart the system let windows redetect the hardware and automatically re install it`s driver. or manually install the latest driver for the hardware device.If that does not resolve your issue you will need to call into Dell Support for configuration support.

Hi Everyone,

I had a very strange issue when setting up a DHCP reservation on my router. Whilst attempting the setup my Windows 7 computer was reporting one MAC address (both under ipconfig & through a program called Change MAC Address) and my router was reporting another (and NO there weren't other wireless devices connected to the router which I was not aware of!).

I Googled the subject, naturally, and didn't come up with much - however by shear luck I did stumble across a solution - this is what I did!

1). Opened a command prompt
2). Typed "arp -a" (minus the double talking marks) and hit enter
3). Opened Control Panel --> Network & Sharing Center --> Change Adaptor Settings
4). Right clicked on Wi-Fi Adapter & selected properties
5). Double clicked "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)"

*** At this point another Properties dialog box opens ***

6). Clicked on OK (didn't change any of the values!)
7). Clicked on OK (again didn't change any values!)
8). Ran the "arp -a" command again
9). Rebooted the Wireless Router & the computer

I did attempt various reboot combinations with the Wireless Router and the laptop before running the "arp -a" command as stated above, however these efforts didn't prove fruitful.

I hope that this helps somebody else out there on the web.

Kind Regards,

Davo

Answer:MAC address conflict (wireless) resolved with arp -a

Davo,

What kind of router do you have? I think if you do not understand the arp -a command is only for display and cannot be used for configuration.

The arp -a IP address - MAC address binding.

If you have a small scale routers, i do not think you can create and IP address to MAC Address binding on them.

"The addressing of the internet side learnt thru DHCP conflicts with the addressing selected for the LAN side''

cound someone tell me "in plain english" what this means and how i can fix it so my wired and wireless connections can get along?
 

Answer:wired / wireless network conflict

It sounds like you are cascading two D-Link routers--a LAN port of the first connected to the WAN port of the second (a switch between makes no difference). They both default to using LAN addresses 192.168.0.x. The second router will then get a 192.168.0.x address for its WAN side. Hence the error message.

You can change one of the routers to use a different LAN scheme, say, 192.168.3.x.

If you would prefer that everything connected to the second router be on the same LAN as you have now use the following recipe.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Firstly, let me say this: I'm cheap, thrifty, tight, and don't like to part with my money unless I've shopped-til-I-drop. I've spent four days attempting to purchase a Lumia 735 Windows phone with a Verizon Wireless plan. Although research has show that, at times, this phone has been offered for as little as $50., right now, it is $192. at the Verizon Wireless Store, online.
Day 1: Went to Verizon Wireless, online, and chose the Lumia 735 and a 1Gb plan. Purchasing this way, I paid $192 up front and the plan was $20+$30, the minimum date plan available.
Why? I've been using a 3G phone for the last 7 years <or so> through Sprint and my total bill has always been $34-$37/mo.. I did this for so long that any 4GLTE seemed like a ridiculous amount of money. The most frustrating thing that pushed me to the edge of making a decision to go to a 4G phone was that I have had an increasingly difficult time in syncing my phone with my Outlook Contacts on my desktop computer...so much so that I, now, cannot sync with the desktop at all any longer.
Following paragraph two and Getting back to purchase process, on Day 2 and after ordering the phone and plan online, I found the same phone at the Microsoft Store, online, for $49. and so I called CS for the Verizon Wireless Online Store and explained my new-found savings opportunity.

Answer:Is there a legal conflict between Mircrosoft and Verizon Wireless?

Verizon will give better coverage, but bad customer support. I can't compare it with Sprint as I've never been on Sprint.
The issue between Microsoft and Verizon is not a legal tussle, per se. They just have not yet been able to come to terms for a contract whereas Verizon would continue to carry the Microsoft phones. It's just a dispute over the terms of renewing their contract, and whether or want to. Problem is, Microsoft is finally forming backbone here.
Verizon is on the side that if they sell a phone, they will be in charge of all updates to the firmware/software for that phone. They only make the exception for the iPhone, because they have no choice as they would lose a lot of customers without it.
Microsoft is on the side that once Windows 10 Mobile hits a phone, Microsoft will control all future updates. Verizon doesn't like it because it keeps them from maintaining control. If people are able to get shiny new additions to their OS on a regular basis, why would they want to upgrade the hardware as often? Especially now that the hardware has gotten to the point of diminishing returns.
If it is great coverage you need, you'll get better coverage on Verizon 99 times out of 100. However, depending on where you live, about 80% or more living in the US get just as good of coverage from AT&T as they do from Verizon. AT&T, though not a fantastic history with Windows Phone, has the best history out of the big 4 and has been the most cooperative with Microsoft.

Hey, rather new to the forum and I've had this problem for a while now.

I'd like to say I'm a mildly advanced tech user. But this problem's got me stumped.

Here's a list of what I got.

Processor: Pentium IV 3.3GHZ
RAM: 1GB (1024MB) DDR Ram.
OS: The memory eater, Windows XP. Media Center Edition
Motherboard: Augsburg 915GV (Similar to Intel D915GVWB, it's a lovely E-machines T5020)
Power Supply: Will post later, I think it was 300W?
Original Graphics Card: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family (Intergrated Intel Graphics card, ew.)
Graphics Card trying to get to work in harmony with adapter: e-GeForce FX 5200 (Nvidia)
Network Adapter: WMP54GS Linksys PCI Wireless Adapter With Speedbooster

Anyhow, here's the story. I originally had the Wireless Adapter installed in the upper PCI slot (PCI slot 1). And it worked normally--with the occasional hiccups here and there. When I got the new graphics card I moved it from slot 1 to slot 2 (lower slot) where it remains to this day. I installed the new graphics card according to the usual procedure (disable the old one n' install the new). Hence why I moved the Network Adapter down a slot so the graphics card could be close to the power supply. Anyhoo, to my joy the graphics card was working fine and dandy. But it killed my Network Adapter.

After doing some tests I found out some interesting statistics.
1. Even with the graphics card disabled, it won't work if it's in the slot.

Answer:Conflict between PCI Video card and PCI Wireless Network Adapter

Hello and welcome to T.F.!
Firstly try the network adapter in a new PCI slot, keeping it right next to the video card can hamper airflow around your GPU. If that doesn't work try manually reassigning the network adapters IRQ address.

Hi all,

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium, wireless router (Di-524) and cable modem (Motorola). My cable modem was connected to the router's WAN port and port1 of the router was connected to the network adapter on my desktop.

Lately my Internet connection speed became really slow, so I thought I'd change my setup and connect the cable modem to the desktop through USB port and keep the wired connection to the router for Homegroup and file and printer sharing.

Here is my problem: when I connect the cable modem to the USB port I get an error message that I have two conflicting connections and as a result I don't have any Internet access at all. When I unplug the network cable that connects my desktop and router, the USB connection is immediately recognized, so I have Internet access but no Homegroup and printer access (my printer is connected to the router).

Is there a way in Windows 7 to setup the wireless router as a router only (no Internet)? Other words, I am trying to achieve the following setup: use cable modem through USB port for Internet access and use wireless router only for homegroup and printer/file sharing?

Answer:Wired cable modem and wireless router conflict

Hi there, At the surface of things, you could try and set the router with a static IP address and omit DNS setting.

Hi everyone, I have a W530 with the Intel Centrino 6205 N wireless card. I have a 250GB SSD mSATA drive in the WWAN slot, and the stock 500GB HDD as a Data drive. I have configured the SSD drive to host a VHDX file to perform a native boot to VHDX with no host OS, and have installed a fresh copy of Windows 8 Enterprise on the vhdx file. Essentially I have a C: drive with only a folder and a single vhdx in it. Once the OS booted, I have used Lenovo System Update Utility to update all drivers and update to the latest BIOS. Everything works flawlessly except for one thing. Once the Bluetooth drivers get installed, after every reboot of the system, the Intel wireless device will not start. It shows the yellow icon in device manager, with the error code 10 "the device cannot start". There are two errors in the event viewer: Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205 : Could not allocate the resources necessary for operation.Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205 : The version number is incorrect for this driver. I have isolated it to the bluetooth driver. If I uninstall the ThinkPad Bluetooth device and all the Bluetooth drivers, the wireless device will always come up properly after a reboot. When the problem appears, I can go to Device Manager, disable the wireless device and then re-enable it, and it then begins to work properly. But after the next reboot, the wireless device will again not start. When I disable/re-enable and then go to Sleep mode, upon wa... Read more

I have a new Packard Bell Imedia A5518 UK computer with AMD Phenom 9650 Quad-Core Processor, 4.00.GB Ram, 32 bit Operating System, running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1.

I installed my Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse and Keyboard 5000 and Wireless Desktop Receiver 3.1, with a USB connection (a Xmas present from my wife!), instead of the wired mouse and keyboard which came with the computer. The wireless mouse works perfectly but the keyboard doesn't work at all. I have tried to find information of conflicts with Vista on Microsoft Maze, but no luck, although there are many, many other conflicts shown on their website. I have also looked for any updated drivers, again with no success.

I am having to use the wired keyboard and mouse, but want to use the wireless set if possible. I would be grateful if anyone resolve this problem for me.

Hi there, I would really appreciate any suggestions for this, I have searched the internet high and low for a solution.

I work as a video editor and where I work we have a high volume wired network sharing video between the different computers. This is on a static IP. I also want to use the internet while I am working, connecting to our wireless internet with a wireless adapter via DHCP.

My problem is if the video network is running my wireless internet constantly goes down every 5 minutes. I have found an interesting way to get it to work again is to switch http1.1 and http1.1 through proxy connections on and off until it comes back. But after a year of doing this every 5 minutes I AM GETTING TIRED OF IT.

Is there any way for me to get these 2 networks working happily at the same time?? I have read about setting up static ip and dhcp at the same time, but when I type in ipconfig/all my settings say I am already seem to be running a static ip and dhcp with the wireless wouter.

Or maybe the sheer volume of the video network will always squeeze out the internet while it is running??

I am reasonably intelligent and computer literate but no expert, any help greatly appreciated

Hello all,

I am having an issue here and I am not quite sure how to resolve it. I have a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 and I also have a wireless home network using a D-Link WBR-2310 wireless router. I am using Windows Vista, and when I am using the mouse with my computer and the wireless network enabled the mouse pointer moves very erratically and does not move smoothly at all. The computer is plugged in directly into the router with an ethernet cable, it is not using a wireless NIC card.

I am fairly certain this is from interference from the wireless router, i have tried different channels to see if I would get less interference but none of that seems to help any. There does not seem to be any settings for my mouse where i can choose what channel it is running on, it runs on Bluetooth. The wireless router is running 802.11g and as far as I know, this and Bluetooth both run at 2.4ghz.

Any ideas/suggestions?

I am using a Lenovo X1, 129126U for over a month now I am having problems connecting the a4tech bt310 bluetooth mouse to the machine, previously it used to be fine but then suddenly the bluetooth components dissappeared after several attempts and uninstalling and reinstalling drivers I have been unable to detect and connect any bluetooth devices. Moreover after the last driver update the wireless connection suddenly got dropped as soon as I started the bluetooth device detection process. I uninstalled and updated the wireles drivers but still no change, changed the wifi channel to 5.2g but still no change. Initially I suspected issues with Lenovo Access Connections and had uninstalled it as well but there is still no resolution.

The problem: as soon as I start the bluetooth detection process the wireless connection is dropped and only reconnects when I switch BT device off and close the BT connection pane.

Drivers listed below
Bluetooth Broadcom drivers updated to 6.5.1.2700,
Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator driver updated to 6.1.7601.17889,

Ok, I will not rant on Vista, but... I repetitively get IP address conflict message when re-connecting to saved wireless network profiles.

To solve these problems I have re-configured the wireless router(s) for a totally new lan address, tried the pc with both DHCP then Static address, always deleting the previous connection entry, and always on reconnect I get a message of IP address conflict, even though this is the ONLY computer on the network.

It seems once I connect to any wireless network, disconnect then re-boot the pc it will seldom ever connect again.

I have a Toshiba laptop S1800 - 400 ( Celeron 800MHz, 128MB SDRAM, with Windows Millenium) It has a build in infrared device and a SMC IrCC network adapter.

I am installing a wireless network at home. I have a SMC router and a wireless Access Point (C54APT Conceptronic). I have a normal pc with a PCI-card (C54RI conceptronic) installed and it works perfectly with the access point, no problems. But i have problems with installing the pc-card (C54RC conceptronic) on the laptop. I managed to get the drivers for the pc-card installed a few times, but every time i shut the laptop down and restart, i need to install the pc-card again. In the device manager, the pc-card always has a yellow exclamation mark. I need to install the drivers from the cd again and most of the time he doesn't recognize them by himself, only when i choose the device and point him to the driver on the cd. I have put the infrared device and the infrared network adapter on non-active by disabling those two in the device manager.

Is my problem comming from the infrared device or from my windows version.
Does anyone have an idea? thx

Edit/UPDATE....
Issue: I had to reinstall my Belkin F7D4101 wireless adapter after I was having connection issues (the issue turned out to be a bad USB cable). I made no other changes to my computer. After reinstalling the wireless adapter software none of my USB ports will access/read my flash drives when the wireless adapter is plugged in. As soon as I unplug the wireless adapter, I can then plug a flash drive into any USB port and the drive can be accessed and read! Plug the wireless adapter back in and no USB ports will read the flash drive again! Note: USB ports still work find with other plug and play devices, like mouse, printer, etc., even with the wireless adapter plugged in.

With the wireless adapter plugged in: I plug in various flash drives and it makes the little sound that indicates it recognizes something is plugged in but the "auto-play" window does not pop-up like normal and when I look to see if the drive is showing it either does not show at all or it does show, but there is no info for the drive such as "Removable Drive "F" 2.80 GB free of 4.00 GB" for example. When I click on the drive it either does nothing or says "Drive Empty".

So simply put, after the reinstall no USB port will access my flash drives unless the wireless adapter in unplugged.

Thank you
Molly

Hello. I'm not very familiar with network connections and the correct terminology so please bear with me.

I have a Netgear WNR612 wireless router, which worked fine for a few weeks. Then something happened and I can't keep the connection anymore. It happened right after I used iTunes to update my iPhone, perhaps a coincidence, but I'm mentioning that just in case. Internet still works fine with ethernet cable straight from the computer, only the wireless connection doesn't work. This happened about a month ago and I haven't been at home much to fix the problem. I have turned off and unplugged everything for several days at a time while gone.

I get a Network Error message saying, Windows has detected an IP address conflict. I have tried restoring the router back to factory settings and reinstalling the wireless card. I have tried changing the IP address settings both in the Network and Sharing Center and the router admin page. Nothing helps. What I think I should do is change the IP address in Command Prompt, but when I type "ipconfig /release", it says "No operation can be performed on Wireless Network Connection 2 while it has its media disconnected" and the same for Local Area Connection. I don't understand what this means, because there is a wireless key in my keyboard and there is a white light (not orange) like there should be. Also in the Network and Sharing Center, I can see that the connections are enabled.

Hi there!

I'm having some networking issues that I'd really like to resolve once and for all.

I purchased a new laptop and I'm attempting to connect it to the internet via the wireless network in my home. I have successfully had internet for about 30 seconds before it dropped the signal (this is after I have restarted the modem, router and vonage device). It will keep picking up the signal and then dropping it. A similar situation happened before when I brought a work laptop home. It would knock all the other computers of the network and only log on for a minute or 2 at a time before losing it's connection. My mother's laptop, on the other hand, always connects just fine. All 3 pc's in my house, the desktop and both laptops, are running windows xp pro. My router is a linksys wireless-b broadband router: BEFW11S4.

I'm also having problems when trying to log into my wireless router's web interface. The username and password were not working so I attempted to reset my router and log in with a blank username and admin as the password. I got an Error that said: "Error: User not allowed to log in the User level". When resetting a router, is there a specific procedure aside from pressing in the reset button for about 30 seconds?

I believe this might be a dynamic vs. static IP issue but even if I'm correct I'm unsure how to go about fixing it.

try to run setup wizard cd that came with the router on both computers. Then you need to configure your router http://setup.belkin.com/guide.html

Then you need to write down the configurations. So you can connect to the network. Make sure its secure though..If you still have problems you still might be too far away...its hard to go through walls sometimes and the distance can be a issue. Might want to make sure also that your router and your wireless card can work with one another..

Hi. When the Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software with the Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility option installed too, it causes a conflict with ThinkVantage Access Connections. Basically if trying to run Access Connections with it installed, AC is unable to detect any wireless networks and a period of disconnection is experienced with trying to "Find Again" in AC. Also, when doing Alt+F5, WiFi will always be shown as "Off" even though it is really connected. One workaround is to deselect "Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility" when installing, but for some users like me, I need the Intel: EAP-TTLS auntentication for work use, which is only available if the utility is installed. It is basically a problem with Access Connection (it is designed well to work with Windows Wireless Service, but Intel Utility is left out), so i hope the engineers can come up with an update to fix this. Thanks!

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

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

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

Answer:ethernet and wireless together

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

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

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

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

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

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Another menu says "wireless settings" and this says "wireless" which I have set to WPA and the mode is 802.11g "only". Is this system wireless or ethernet or both? I would like to do the pc to tv connection for netflix movies at some point.. Am I all set with this configuration? (knowing I have to buy a box of some sort, Roku or Apple or something) and if I do have a wireless connection, can I connect the two without cables running from one to another? Hope that is all clear. Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Ethernet or wireless?

Is this system wireless or ethernet or bothClick to expand...

both

you have a wireless router - and so you can connect to the router with a cable as you currenty are doing and other devices PCs etc or your PC can also connect with wireless
I would like to do the pc to tv connection for netflix movies at some point..Click to expand...

someone else will need to answer the netflix service

from what I can see on the website
http://www.netflix.com/HowItWorks#faq1
you can watch via a PC

Can I also watch instantly on my PC or Mac?

Yes. Simply press Play on any TV episode or movie to instantly watch it online on your Internet-connected PC or Mac.Click to expand...

so you can watch directly on your PC without any other device - and then if you have your PC video output connected to the TV you should be able to watch on TV via PC

whats the make and model of TV
- what outputs do you have on the PC video card ?
- what inputs do you have on the TV

if you have HDMI on both - then you should be able to use that - although for some copyright materials you will only be able to display on the TV and not two monitors

The office setup is wireless. When the printer throws a wobbly we're stuck until the support chap arrives. (They're good but busy.) There is an old Xerox machine which is not connected to the PC and is used for copying only. I checked the manual for this printer, online, and the connection to the PC is given as enthernet. I don't suppose it's as easy as plugging in an ethernet cable. Is it possible to connect this printer and use it in a wireless setup?

Answer:Wireless and ethernet

Depends on the model of the Xerox, the operating system and availability of drivers. I suspect that you may be able to connect it to the router by ethernet (not to the pc) and then use it. Are you sure that it is ethernet to pc?

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

Answer:Ethernet Vs Wireless

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

I've just moved into my Halls at uni in London. We have to use a CAT 5E ethernet cable to connect to a socket in the wall. When we open a web browser we have to enter a username and password to be able to go online. I was wondering if there is any bit of Hardware which i could plug into the ethernet wall socket which would then broadcast that ethernet connection as wireless and if so if it is possible to protect the connection so others cant use the WIFI.

thanks

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

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

Hi

My W8 PC is connected to the Wireless Router by Ethernet Cable, the PC also
has Wireless connectivity; is it possible to connect to the Router with both at t
he same time and if I do will that improve internet speed?

Thanks

Daniel

Answer:Ethernet and Wireless

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