Answer: Wireless not working, but ethernet does

Hi Sssstud,

Please let us know the message you see when you try to establish a wireless connection to the internet. Is your computer able to detect wireless networks? What version of Windows are you using and what is the model and name of the wireless router?

Thanks and regards,

Hi,

I have a linksys model wrt54gl v1.1 and I am using Windows Vista 32bit Home Edition. I have a pc connected to the router directly through an ethernet plus a laptop, 2 iphones and a blackberry that get wireless internet from it. 2 days ago wireless stopped working. The internet on the pc connected to the router by ethernet is still working and the power, WLAN, ethernet, and internet lights are all lit green. The internet and ethernet lights flash when data is being transferred but the the WLAN light is not flashing. I have restored the router to factory default but it is still not working. The phones and laptop are not detecting any wireless network present. Hope you can help.

So I've been googling this problem for hours now and I've finally given up and decided to ask for some help. My computer knowledge is pretty good but I'm not so great with all this internet stuff! I can connect to the internet through the cable but not wirelessly, despite it showing up as being available when I connect it tells me I have limited connectivity. Any help would be very appreciated, i ran a ipconfig and here are the results:

I have an Acer Aspire 7552G laptop running Windows 7 x64 that is having problems with connecting to the internet.

I started to notice the wireless and LAN connections becoming very weak, web pages would load slower, data would take longer to download, etc. This lasted for a couple weeks. As of now, I cannot get any signal, neither wireless nor LAN.

I normally use Google Chrome but have tried to connect through multiple browsers.

I have tried updating the wireless/ethernet drivers, and I have also tried uninstalling them all together and reinstalling them. Both to no avail. I have no idea how to resolve this issue and am hoping the tech pros here can help me out!

Wireless LAN and LAN vendors are both Broadcom and the drivers can be found here: Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / Aspire / Aspire 7552G

Answer:Wireless & Ethernet LAN - Not Working?

How are you measureing the stregth of the ethernet connection?

Who is your ISP ?. . What Brand and Model is the Modem and Router?


Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


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

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

So im currently using Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. My laptop is an Asus f3sv-x1, an older model dating back aug 2007, but it works with windows 7 until recently... While Asus doesnt officially support this particular model with windows 7 drivers, i was able to easily grab the drivers off microsoft. Everything worked nice and smooth until a recent windows update that i installed. Basically every time i restart or shutdown my pc, my ethernet, Usb, and wireless adapter drivers will not load during startup or start. To be more clear, i went into device manager only to find out that there are exclamation marks next to the network adapters and USB controllers. Each device has the cannot start code (10) http://img252.imageshack.us/img252/1236/81543872.jpg
The funny thing is that if i unistall the drivers or disable/enable them, they would automatically download from microsoft and it would work. Like i said before, this would only occur when i restart or shutdown my system. It's such a hassle to constantly unistall/enable the drivers everytime i restart or turn on the pc. I dont want to reformat because i just prefer not to.. Any advice out there?

I have a Lenovo Y530.  The Wireless and Ethernet interfaces are recognized, but not working for some reason.  I reinstalled Windows and installed the latest drivers, but I still don't get a link on Ethernet, and the wireless acts as if it's not turned on (switch on, and Fn "F5"). I even installed Ubuntu and it recognized the interfaces, but complained that it is unable to find a DHCP server on both WiFi and Ethernet, but was able to exchange keys with the wireless!

I need help with my wireless and ethernet connection for the U330 notebook. I can not connect to the internet since I received my U330 and if I try to connect to a wireless router, it knocks other users off. I called customer service already and they asked me to download the driver on the Lenovo Downloads and Drivers page. The page can not be found when you try to download the drive so I was not sure if there is another place I can download it since customer service mentioned that they will send me a disk which will take some time. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Wireless and Ethernet connection for U330 not working - Help

Your router may be knocking you due to lots of facts. Those Ensteins suggested drivers reinstall because that's the only thing they know.Try changing your encryption mode, try adding your laptop's WiFi MAC-adress of whitelist of Route, try disabling firewall, try increase strength of signal.Driver is located at consumersupport.lenovo.com - do not hesitate to check.

My wireless is not working. I have tried looking at comments on line but nothing seems to work!
If I use the CMD code I get this for the ether net:
ipv4: 94.205.214.13
subnet: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 94.205.214.1

I have a sitecom router if that helps at all? It says to go to 192.168.0.1 which I have done but sdtill confused!Thanks in advance
 

Answer:Wireless not working, ethernet is working

All the above looks good. Using 192.168.0.1 as a URL in your browser, you should get a request for the user/password for that router. Once you login, you can go to the WiFi portion, enable it, set the SSID and encryption you desire.

Where do you get stuck?

I have an Ideapad U330 that will not get online using ethernet in windows. Before you ask, no it isnt my router. When I use an Ubuntu bootable disk, the ethernet works fine and I can surf the web without issue. I reformatted and installed windows 7 x86 (It had windows XP previously and the ethernet didnt work there either), installed all the drivers, and updated the BIOS, the ethernet still does not work while the wireless works fine. I thought this was a hardware issue until the ethernet worked with no issue in Ubuntu.

Ok so I have a lenevo e430 laptop. I have been running Linux on it for the past couple months with no issues. unfortunately for me I have to go back to windows for school purposes. So I have done a fresh install of windows 7 professional. (not the one that came with the computer with all the lenevo "crap". I cannot connect to the internet. It seems that there is no wireless adapter on it and even with the Ethernet cable plugged in I still don't get internet. When I go into the device manager the network adapters that are listed are only the Bluetooth ones. I am beyond frustrated with this. I went into the bios and everything is enabled. Solutions?

Answer:Wireless Or Ethernet not working after fresh install of windows 7

Hi, robster8719
 
It may be that the installation of Windows was corrupted and needs to be repaired, which can be done by booting from the Windows disc and selecting Repair now.
 
If this is not the case, then I would recommend downloading this driver from another machine and then saving the downloaded file to a USB flash drive or a disc so that you can install them on your E430. If it installs properly and helps the issue, then you will be able to access the Internet through ethernet and download any other drivers there.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

When I try and access the internet through any of the main browsers (I.e. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari) they tell me along the lines of 'unable to access the network' and 'this page can't be displayed' after taking a while attempting to load. I also cannot access it through any of my Windows 8 apps. I know it's not an issue with the home broadband itself and is something to do with my laptop as it is running fine both wirelessly and through using an Ethernet cable on all other devices. I would really appreciate some help with trying to fix this asap as I have spent a lot of time researching this issue and trying most things to resolve it without success, I also need to use the internet for loads of coursework over the summer hols and cannot afford to be taking it to a pricey IT technician. Please helppp
 

Answer:My laptop cannot connect to the internet, even though wireless and ethernet are working

Take a look at the file
\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts​there MUST be at least a line reading 127.0.0.1 LOCALHOST
but the question is there anything other than comments in it?
If so, leave the comments and the localhost line and delete everything else.

If you modify the hosts file, then you also need to

ipconfig /flushdns
net stop "dns client"
net start "dns client"

Hello,

Yesterday, my internet through wireless stopped working all of a sudden. It was working good till I closed my pc and went out for a few hours. When I returned and tried to access, it simply does not connect. I get an error saying "Windows was unable to connect to abcd (router name)". I tried to plug it into the router through ethernet and it works perfectly.

I have tried to uninstall the wireless adapter and the lan adapter as well. I have tried it in safe mode. I have tried to delete the network also but now that left me with inputting the password everytime I want to connect.

I am living in a student accomodation with 6 more people and all of them's is working good. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate Edition on Dell Studio 1555. The router is a Netgear one for the Virgin Media Superhub.

Thanks a lot

this is for a Compaq-6000 laptop (HP brand) | Windows Vista-OS | attached to wireless connection through broadband connection | household uses VoIP / internet /cable-tv

Over course of 2-weeks, somehow my wireless connection stopped working. After POST and launch to desktop, the led on front the of laptop would change to blue, then WLAN notice would always pop-up in lower left coner of screen stating the the WLAN was connected.

I have no idea what I can do to get this back working. Laptop has built-in network adapter, and ethernet capabilities for both hard-wired and wireless. I use this laptop when the other PC is in-use. Having this option allows for multi-use of internet without having to waiting for the other PC to become free. At first I thought the drivers may have been outdated.

This is what I have done so far as I have run out of ideas as to how to resolve this issue.

1) Went to HP site and downloaded drivers for both Broadcom 802.11 b/g adapter and HP Wireless Assistant to my flash drive. Then downloaded those drivers to my laptop.

2) Went to microsoft because error message states that drivers could not be downloaded Code-31 for the adapter. This site based on the code states that Microsoft is aware of this issue, and this would not stop the network adapter and should operate properly. This is not the case. At present I can only connect to my wireless by hardwire cat-5 cable. This laptop has option for both, but now the led stays the color "amber" whe... Read more

Hello,

My name is Vladan and I have had a problem occur yesterday. My internet stopped working.
I immediately tried my phone's wireless connection and saw that it was working fine, so I tried laptop wireless and it too was working. When I plug in my network cable it stops working.
My ethernet internet connection status shows that Ipv4 and Ipv6 have "no internet accsess". It's not just my laptop's wired internet that stopped working, it's the whole network I have in my apartment consisting of two more computers who also lost their wired-ethernet internet accsess. I suspect something is wrong with my router since it relays my internet but wireless works fine so I'm stumped. When I plug in my cable it shows limited connectivity.

I have tried ipconfig /release - /renew, I have tried netsh winsock reset and netsh int ip reset log.txt
I have tried (netsh winsock reset catalog), also I tried (netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log) and it said the following ::::::
Resetting Interface, OK!
Resetting Neighbor, OK!
Resetting Path, OK!
Resetting , failed.
Accsess is denied.

Resetting, OK!
Restart the computer to complete this action.

I don't know what is this "failed and accsess is denied" but it might be the problem.

Hi There,
I recently moved house and got Virgin internet with a new router/modem. I have an oldish laptop whose wireless has always worked. Since setting everything up with the new router the wireless doesn't work. When plugging in the ethernet cable everything is fine. I know it isn't the router as I have a mac and a bunch of iphones and ipads hooked up. I have googled this to death and updated all the drivers of the laptop, restarted the wifi card, updated everything I could on this laptop and I still can't figure out why the wifi wont connect. I hope that you can help. Details are below:

Hi
My Ethernet connection to my modem has ceased to function on my PC using windows XP home.
The cable is fine since I have been able to connect to the internet with my netbook using it.
Device manager says my network adapter is working properly.
The LAN does not appear in Network connections and no icon appears in the status bar with or without the cable plugged in.
The cable port light is green when the cable is connected.
I have tried updating the driver and have tried to find other fixes through a forum search but nothing has been able to remedy the situation.
AVG virus scans and Maulwarebites scans are all negative.

I am using a USB wireless device to connect to the internet currently but despite the computer says it has a 120 Mbps connection but basic web pages take over 10 seconds to load with many timing out. Other computers using the same modem don't experience the same lag. I don't know if this is related to my Lan issue but I thought I should mention it.

I'm hoping someone can help me.

Hi, I have a Y530, just bought less than 1 month.  The wireless works fine, but whenever I plug the ethernet cable in, the comp cannot ID and won't connect.  I tried installing the Broadcom Fast Ethernet from Lenovo drivers and DL page but it didn't work.  I am thinking this has to do with Vista-32 set-up.  Anyway, please help me if you can.  I can use wireless just fine. All settings in the comp is pretty much default.  Thank you.

Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop . Spilled some liquid and it is not able to connect to internet using Wifi or through ethernet cable.The USB ports also have stopped working so i cannot connect it to a wireless adapter.

Showed this to Geeksquad agent at Bestbuy and he told me that this could be a motherboard problem and nothing much can be done about it.

So basically i have a working laptop that i cannot to internet.

I have read/searched through most of the posts on this and various other sites and can't seem to find help with my problem. So hopefully someone will be able to help.

This morning when I woke up my computer worked properly. I then went to work, and when I turned it on I got the "blue screen of death." (I apologize for not posting the exact wording, but I did not think I would need it). I restarted the computer per the instructions, and it booted up. The computer, however, failed to connect to the wireless network. I noticed that the network icon was not in the taskbar. I then went to device manager and my integrated wireless adapter (Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG) had a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. I clicked on properties and under the 'general' tab the device status read:

This device cannot start (Code 10)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device

I then unistalled the controller and attempted to reinstall via the 'add hardware' program. I then received the message:

A problem occurred during hardware installation. Your device may not function properly

I then, believing it was a driver issue, downloaded the latest drivers from the intel website for my device on another computer. I uninstalled the controller again, and tried to install with the new drivers via a thumb drive. I received the same error message and the controller had the yellow triangle. When I clicked on properties this time I received the fol... Read more

Answer:Integrated Wireless Controller/PC Card Adapter/Ethernet port stopped working

Sounds like your motherboard is rapidly dying.

If the ethernet controller (or adapter) does not show under Network Adapters and is not in Other or Unknown devices with a warning or error message check in the BIOS (Setup) to see if it somehow got disabled. If it is already enabled, or doesn't show there, see my first paragraph.

When the ethernet controller is defective it can prevent other integrated and/or PCMCIA networking cards from working. When this happens sometimes a USB adapter will work.

Hello,My name is Vladan and I have had a problem occur yesterday. My internet stopped working.I immediately tried my phone's wireless connection and saw that it was working fine, so I tried laptop wireless and it too was working. When I plug in my network cable it stops working.My ethernet internet connection status shows that Ipv4 and Ipv6 have "no internet accsess". It's not just my laptop's wired internet that stopped working, it's the whole network I have in my apartment consisting of two more computers who also lost their wired-ethernet internet accsess. I suspect something is wrong with my router since it relays my internet but wireless works fine so I'm stumped. When I plug in my cable it shows limited connectivity.I have tried ipconfig /release - /renew, I have tried netsh winsock reset and netsh int ip reset log.txt I have tried (netsh winsock reset catalog), also I tried (netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log) and it said the following ::::::Resetting Interface, OK!Resetting Neighbor, OK!Resetting Path, OK!Resetting , failed.Accsess is denied.Resetting, OK!Restart the computer to complete this action.::::I don't know what is this "failed and accsess is denied" but it might be the problem.I have rebooted my router several times but also with no results.

Answer:Network troubleshoot - Ethernet (wired) stopped working, Wireless works fine.

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!

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

Answer:Ethernet Vs Wireless

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

Answer:Wireless to ethernet

You could just try sticking the ethernet cable in and removing the usb. If it does not work you will have to run the setup cd again. If this cause problems you can always run system restore to put you back where you were.

A little confusion here - When I log onto my Verizon router page (that 198.xxx thing), I show many menus but the following 2 have me a little confused. One says "network connection" type is: Ethernet - I do have a yellow cable coming out of my Actiontec router to the pc so I get that. 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.

Hey all im new here, and this is my first post.
First of all I have a DSL connection through my provider. I then have a NetGear FM114P wireless firewall/print server (router ) attached to the modem.

My computer is currently hardwired through the ethernet port in the FM114P router with two other computers connecting by WiFi.

What i was thinking, was loosing the ethernet cord and turning this computer in to a wireless connection like the other two, but if i do will i loose speed? This computer currently gets between 700-950 kbps., depending on traffic.

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.

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.

We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

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

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

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

Here are a number of possible solutions

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Any suggestions anyone ! !
 

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

Answer:Ethernet to Wireless...

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

Do you really not have ANY free USB ports?

I am currently getting my broadband using eclipse whom I am very happy with.I use a gateway (ZyXEL P-600 series Model p-660R-D1, I assume it is a gateway as eclipse sell something similair and call it a gateway). I have tried to split this before by plugging the ethernet into an old hub (netgear dual speed hub DS104). Unfortunately when I tried to run two PCs from the Hub when the 2nd Connection was made the 1st connection was dropped.Now I am trying to get a wireless router which also has ethernet connections. Do I need to get one that includes a Gateway or was the problem down to an old hub? I have quite a medium sized house so would need two antennaes I have been told. Would anyone be able to recommend any joint wireless /ethernet routers and do I need to get it to include a Gateway as well? Or might it be a problem with the internet provider.

Answer:Wireless and ethernet Hub/Router

When you connect to the internet with a Router, the Router *IS* the Default Gateway for any computers connecting to the internet through it. >>> I have tried to split this before by plugging >>> the ethernet into an old hub (netgear dual >>> speed hub DS104). Unfortunately when I tried >>> to run two PCs from the Hub when the 2nd >>> Connection was made the 1st connection was dropped.I would have thought that should work, although it might be necessary to use a Network Switch rather than a basic Network Hub. The way to check would be to see what IP address each computer connected to it gets by DHCP. If the first computer to connect gets your public IP address (as allocated by the ISP) then you are connected to a Modem and not to a Router. A Router will get your public IP address and allocate IP addresses to connected computers using one of the address ranges reserved for Local Area Networks, most commonly 192.168.x.x addresses.

A friend brought over a computer for me to remove a virus, after checking out the computer found that the OS was hosed. So backed up data, and put a fresh istall of XP pro on the PC, legal copy not bootlegged. Couldn't get ethernet working, figured since he did have a several nasty viruses, I'd flash the BIOS, and right 0's to the drive just to make sure no nasties were still on the machine. All said and done, reinstalled XP Pro, on an Emachine T2862. Installed drivers. Installed a pci 3Com ethernet card, with the right drivers. No ethernet, cant get an IP, tried using a good static IP didn't conect to the internet, couldn't ping the router. Plugged in a Linksys wireless usb adapter, grabbed an IP right away. Tryied plugging the ethernet in, ethernets get IP's now, unplug usb and ethernet stops working. Plugged usb back in did all of the windows updates, including hardware. Tried Ethernet with the new drivers, still doesn't work. Tried Winsock fix, tried XP bat fix. Any other suggestions, I'm stuck.
 

Answer:New install no ethernet, but can get wireless

What patch level of XP are you using? If this is SP2, the classic WINSOCK patch is not correct.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.

Let's also see this:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

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

Yesterday, due to an additional guest to our house, I had to up and move all of my possessions into another floor and section of my house. I have only one wireless device, and that is laptop. Other than that, I have

Desktop PC (windows 7)
Xbox 360
and a HP C5100 series printer
that all require an ethernet connection to my router... which is back on the other side of the house. I cannot snake a 60 foot ethernet cord to each of these devices. My router is an Apple Extreme bought less than 6 months ago.

How do I give my network devices internet access from across the house? Is there some wireless hub I can buy that translates wireless internet back through ethernet cords that I can set up over this side of my home?

Any questions for specification please ask. Thanks in advance

PS - If I buy a wireless card for my desktop PC, only a year old, would I be able to use that as a router in and of itself? It has extra ethernet ports on the back, so could I hook up my Xbox 360 to it and get network access for my Xbox or printer? Are there any steps to do that?

Answer:Wireless and Ethernet solutions

Hello and welcome to the forums.

There are many ways of accomplishing this, personally I solved this problem by employing an Ethernet over mains power solution using this; I find that it is almost completely reliable and you can easily stick a 4 port ethernet hub on the other end for all your devices (some of the more expensive versions have a hub built in).

It works by taking your ethernet signal and sending it through your houses power cabling and then receiving that signal at any socket in your house.

There are other options but personally I think this is one of the best.
In answer to your question about your WLAN Card being used as a router then the answer is yes.

You can set it up as an ad hoc network on any version of Windows or if you are running Windows Seven you can use this nice little program called Connectify which accomplishes the same thing but is much more versatile and easier to manage.

I hope this answers your questions.

I am unhappy with my current wireless network. i am useing a Belkin 54g Wireless Router, with a MSI USB Network adapter. I only have one computer at this time that is wireless, but I plan on adding a Xbox360 soon that will need to be run Wireless. My signal really fluctuates and I get random drops. I was thinking that if I get a Wireless Ethernet Bridge I could move It alot closer to the wireless router giving me better signal and less signal droppage. I was thinking of getting the Linksys WET54G but I am not 100% sure if this will help or do what I want it to, if i understand correctly I can hook it up to a network switch and all the computers/Xbox360 hooked up to the switch can use the Bridge, is this correct?
 

Answer:Should I get a Wireless Ethernet Bridge?

Provided you have a means of assigning IP to the devices, yes it should work.

A more cost effective and flexible method would be a wireless router (one that could be modded a-la WRT54G series et al) and mod it with a 3rd party firmware would give better results. This is what I did. I have 1 wireless AP connected to my LAN and for extra devices where I didnt want, or could not run cable, I use a WRT54GS modded with DD-WRT firmware and use the WRT to act as either a wireless client on my existing 802.11x network or use it as a WDS node if I want extended wireless coverage in a certain part of my home. The 802.11x network is acting as an AP where my IP assignments are handled via my linux box router.


The only reason I suggest a router instead of that bridge is the cost. Even out of the box, I believe you can make the latest version of the WRT54G's act as a wireless client and they are under $50 new versus this $90 piece of hardware which I think is a bit more limited functionally.

BOTH will accomplish what you want to do. The router method takes more work, but you will get more functionality (built-in switch, better radio) but the bridge is simpler.

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

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

Answer:Wireless vs Cat5 ethernet

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

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

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

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

Answer:wireless or ethernet connection

>>> like to know how I use the ethernet connection >>> instead of going wirelessYou just plug an ethernet cable between the PC's RJ45 network port and one of the router's LAN ports. Unlike a "wireless" connection, you don't have to go through any procedure to "Connect" to the network.>>> I see that the latter is slower.Standard 802.11g networking has a nominal data transfer speed of 54Mbps, although in practice this is likely to be closer to 30Mbps. A wired ethernet connection to your router will run at 100Mbps. This higher speed is only significant for transferring files between computers in your local network, because even 30Mbps will be well above the speed of your broadband connection, unless you are on something like Virgin Media's 50Mbps Cable service.

I have just upgraded my Internet Connection to a 20Mb/s one. BT told me that my line should support between 7Mb/s and 11Mb/s but I am only managing 3.45Mb/s.
Currently, my PC has no Wireless Card, so it is connected to the "Home Hub" by a CAT5 Cable. The Home Hub is connected to an Extension Telephone Socket, about 20' from the Main Socket.
My Question: Would I be better off to stick a Wireless Card, or Dongle, into the PC and connect the Home Hub to the main Telephone Socket?
My Lappy has a neat little Wireless Dongle which works well through two walls. If I were to add a Powered USB Hub, to the PC, and plug the Dongle into that. Would it be OK.

Answer:Wireless or Ethernet Connection

The first thing I would suggest is that you connect the Home Hub directly to your main telephone socket with a filter. Extension Telephone Sockets are notorious for slowing down the connection.
You could get a wireless card or dongle for your desktop PC but it would perform better via an ethernet connection directly to your router. If you want to position your desktop quite a way away from the router you can buy a longer ethernet cable.

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

Hello,I am currently having issues with connecting to the internet. I am using a T60, machine type: 2623 D6U and running Windows XP. Yesterday, I updated my Thinkvantage software, then immediately performed a backup of my computer using the Thinkvantage software.  After that, I tried to use the wifi and it would not even search for any surrounding networks.

I meant to uninstall wireless card and then install it again after reboot. I rebooted and was able to get wireless through Windows network connection, but not thinkvantage. I checked device manager and my Ethernet network was gone, so I may have accidentally uninstalled that instead. I rebooted again and when went back to device manager, the Ethernet was back. Once I found out wireless was working I tried a Thinkvantage System update again, and noticed I could update my Ethernet. I clicked to download and install and an error came up with "was not able to download package" or something very similar.  So currently, I have wireless available through Windows, but not thinkvantage and no Ethernet is working.  Any suggestions on how I can get this working properly again? Network cards in device manager: Intel(R) PRO/1000 PL Network ConnectionIntel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection Thanks for your help!

Answer:Ethernet is slower than wireless....

It might depend upon the computers and the Router, whether the Wired/Ethernet is 10/100 or 10/100/1000 [Gigabit]. Also the Wi-Fi may be 802.11b/g/n or 802.11ac [the latest].

The manual is a bit sketchy but I would like to be able to continue to use the printer with wired connection to desktop but enable it to print from the Laptop or the iPad without the desktop switched on. I assume I have to install the printer CD onto the laptop and get the iPad app? If I set the printer to wi fi, does that disable the Ethernet connection? I do not have a formal network where files can bee seen from each device. It appears to have all the up to date functions except fax. The router gave me an option to set "Air print" , which I enabled, but what is that?

Hello all-

I am at my family's vacation home. For several years we have stuck to using dial-up here, part of the whole isolation thing you know, but recently decided to upgrade to the most basic DSL. I set up the connection and connected the modem (Lynx L-220) to a wireless-b router (Linksys BEFW11S4) and everything was working great for about, oh, maybe an hour. It started getting unbearably slow, worse than dial-up. So I connected to the router with an ethernet cable and it's fine, most of the time. I then disconnected the ethernet and surfed wirelessly, and it was also fine. So the wireless only would work properly if I had just used the ethernet. ?????????? That's odd.......

I tried pinging a few sites on ethernet and wireless to see what happened. I opened Firefox, tried loading a page (of course it wouldn't) and then typed ping www.google.com in command prompt. It timed out a few times, then get a reply and, low and behold, the page suddenly started loading. Now I'm really confused. The internet works sometimes, the wireless works sometimes, and the ethernet works sometimes. ?????

I'm certainly planning to call tech support, but as that is a big thing to attempt, I thought I'd post here first and see if there is anyone out there who perhaps can help me.

OMG OMG OMG

Edit: I have tried pinging and loading pages only connected to the modem as well. It still doesn't work properly. I guess it's not the routers problem, maybe ... Read more

My ISP has supplied a Thompson Gateway router with wireless and 4 Ethernet ports. I connect to the internet from my desktop machine (Windows XP) via Ethernet.

My new Fujitsu Esprimo Mobile V6555 (Windows XP Professional) connects to the internet via wireless. I swapped to using Ethernet for a couple of days but when I wanted to use wireless again I failed. I tried lots of things but eventually did a “restore” to a date prior to the use of Ethernet and all was well again. I experimented and can now swap between the two PROVIDED I disable the wireless connection before plugging in the Ethernet cable.

I can understand the Fujitsu not being able to use both systems at the same time but was surprised that having them both connected should then disable the wireless connection requiring a “restore” to get it back. I contacted Fujitsu and got the following response:-

“You should always be aware of whether you are connected to the wired or wireless network, and use only one network connection at a time. Your laptop can also be connected to both networks simultaneously, which can cause network instability, slow connectivity or confusing the OS!”

I would like to occasionally “network” the Fujitsu to the desktop machine using a spare Ethernet port on the router. This would only be used for basic exchange of files, no sharing of printers or scanners, or opening a file from one machine in an application running on the other, just very basic file exchange.

After my initial expe... Read more

hi i just bought a new laptop with windows 7 os. i dont know why but my ethernet (MARVELL YUKON 88E8055 PCI-E GIGABIT ETHERNET CONTROLLER) connection speed is just about the same as my wireless (INTEL WIFI LINK 5100 AGN) i am so confused why my ethernet connection is so slow. With my older computers, ethernet was at least 2x faster...

Answer:Wireless and ethernet speeds are the same pls help

I'm afraid i don't know anythinge else about your setup.
Is the wireless router connected directly to the Ethernet router? are they combined? what are the brand and product names?
is this DSL, Cable, or Optical Fiber internet?

also, could it be that the other two computers were limited wirelessly to the speed of a WIfI G network, while both the router and the new computer are WiFi n compatible?

hi, my voyager 2000 adsl wireless router has a socket for a ethernet cable, as does the laptop, if a ethernet cable is plugged in and set up, does that put paid to the wireless side of things, what i would like to do, is run one laptop with the cable, and one wirelesly..and one more thing, the software upgrade for the router says, use a ethernet connection for it, because if the router drops the signal while the upgrade is in progress, it will render the router useless.....thanks...

Answer:ethernet connection plus wireless ???

You can use ether but not both together. As the Router instructions for upgrading, but does it need it? and why? you only upgrade if you have Problems and or there is more better features with the upgrade. On The Ethernet and Wireless I have two desktops connected by Ethernet cable not Crossover, and a Laptop By Wireless

I usually switch off the wifi at work when I plug the ethernet cable into the laptop. Was wondering who is at work when both are plugged in and turned on? I'm guessing the wireless connection takes over and is the method running. But that's purely guessing.

i wasn't sure if this topic belongs in the 'hardware' or 'software' heading.
