Can't set my Intel 4965agn card to connect to new N router

Question: Can't set my Intel 4965agn card to connect to new N router

X61tVista Business 32-bitUsing Windows to All,I have been using G wireless since purchasing my X61t in August 2008. Finally stepped up to N in my house. (LinkSys WRT310N) Wife's MacBook saw it and connected with no need to change ANYTHING. X61t, however, reports that it sees the router but that "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the reuirements of the network." (Mac 1, Windows 0) When I roll over the name of the SSID it correctly reported that it is an 802.11n signal. I looked at the wireless card properties in Device Manager and it lists 802.11n Mode as "enabled". Channel width is "Auto". I have tried the router with both 20 and 40... now set at 40. There is one setting that is confusing to see: The last item is labeled "Wireless Mode" and allows 6 settings with various arrangements of possible wireless interface standards: 802.11a, 802.11b, etc all the way to 802.11a/b/g" -but no mention of N in this section. I see no other settings there I recognize as related to connecting. Searches here on this board and acroos the whole set of forums came up with a few fixes which I have tried: go into BIOS and disable wireless then enable it, for example. Intel ProSet Wireless tool Diagnostic runs fine until it gets to Association Test and fails saying, "Not Associated". Although the router is set to broadcast one windows diagnostic reports that the network is hidden. Weird. Because the other computer is happily connected I agree with windows that the problem lies in the Intel card's configuration. The x61 sees the internet over a cable - no problem! Thanks in advance for any suggestions!Jonathan7007Hawaii

I am trying to connect to a secured wireless network that uses wpa, AES, mschap2 and authenticates based on the Windows logon.  I don't have the option for this combination in Access Connections.  I uninstalled AC and tried using windows and I get an error message "An unexpected error has occurred" when I select AES and click next.  I've installed the latest drivers both from Lenovo and Intel and nothing helps.  I have no problems with other machines, just this X300.  Any help would be appreciated.  This is my personal machine and I NEED wireless connectivity.

Is there a way to install an Intel 4965agn miniPCI in a Thinkpad T61?  Have updated BIOS, etc., but no combination works.  Get 1802 error re: unathorized card and Google work-around's don't seem to work on T61 series (on my laptop anyway). RegardsHSA

Answer:1802 error on Thinkpad T61 trying to add Intel 4965agn card

Welcome to the forum! My guess is that you're trying to install a generic Intel card, and this will not work in a ThinkPad, since the BIOS detects it and blocks the boot with the message you've encountered. Only IBM/Lenovo approved cards (with a FRU number on them) will work without triggering the error message. And from what I recall (might be wrong) there is no BIOS hack for newer ThinkPads, T61 included. Hope this helps.

Answer:Intel 4965AGN mini PCI WALN card and SP 6100

Hi Jeroen,

I must disappoint you, the card will not fit in your machine.

Thats the card you?ve mentioned:
It?s an MINI-PCI "Express" card, but your Satellite 6100 has just an MINI-PCI but NOT "express". It?s just an MINI-PCI slot.

Here?s a MINI-PCI Express slot:

And thats a sort o card YOU WILL NEED since it fits into your slot:

Just look for cards which suit for an "MINI-PCI" slot. The best would be to take some atheros card, but you can also try an intel product.

I bought an Inspiron 1420 for 640$ shipped or so from Dell last month and now I've been using it at my school campus.

It has a Intel 4965AGN Wireless-N Mini Card and the network says it's 300 Mbps connection here but at times when I'm using the internet, it would be slower than AOL!

I did a speakeasy speed test and got

20k kbps and upload 28 kbps

A few minutes later I did speakeasy test again and got about same but upload speed went to 4kbps.

Inspiron 1420, Intel Core 2 Duo T8300(2.4GHz, 800Mhz, 3M L2 Cache)

Intel 4965AGN Wireless-N Mini Card

Note: My lil bro is on a 4 yr old laptop and he got upload speed up to 7000kbps...
His download speed burst to 40000kbps and stayed there...
what is going on here?

Answer:Intel 4965AGN Wireless Card Slow? Inspiron 1420

Max speed the card supports != Speed of the wireless network your connected to.

Sounds like the campus network is the limiting factor, not your card. Heck, I would imagine that quite a few people (and maybe a handful of bandwidth hogs) are online at the same time.

And yes, I have the same network card in my laptop though I've only achieved ~130Mbps, which seems normal to me.

edit: Have you tried connecting to any other wireless networks besides your campus?

here's all my specs before i get into the issue:

OS: vista home premium, 32 bit
wireless card: intel 4965AGN
laptop: inspiron 1520
processor: intel core 2 duo CPU T7100 @ 1.60GHz
no recent crashes to cause the problem, and i haven't been using much anti-spyware other than mcafee security center.

allrighty then, i don't know if that's enough information about the hardware or not. here's my problem, as detailed as i can manage:

my wireless seems really inferior to other computers. i'm right now in about the middle of my campus, UT austin, and i get disconnected from the wireless intermittently. just sitting here i've been disconnected 4 or 5 times over the past 40 minutes or so. in my apartment, they have their own isp, namely Airimba wireless. lots of times i won't be able to get onto the wireless (connect to the router). i just spent 35 minutes talking to a dell support technician, and basically he had me delete all my saved network connections and reboot the computer. problem not solved. it has been suggested to me that perhaps this is a hardware problem; the dell technician basically said vista might be causing the flakiness. one of my huge freshman classes is in a theatre, and i see people around me surfing the web, but i can't get a connection. it happens in certain class rooms too, where others get a connection, but the gods don't favor me.

Answer:wireless help; vista, intel 4965AGN card, inspiron 1520

Hi andrestable

If you are currently using any flavor of the "ACM" (Arimba Connection Manager) software, I'd recommend uninstalling it.

I'd also recommend uninstalling your current driver for your Intel wireless adapter, and then installing this Vista driver set directly from Dell. It's from mid-November of 2007, only nine weeks ago or so, and might help --- --- follow the setup instructions as prompted. (*Note that the initial installation instructions are on the same webpage as the download*).

Once you have that package installed, test your connections. Should you continue to have difficulty, there is a wireless patch specifically for your model, and specifically for your wireless adapter: ---

I think that the 2nd patch has an excellent chance of helping significantly.

Remember, that when you are setting up your connections, you won't be choosing Ad Hoc, but Infrastructure. Your connections should also be enabled for Mixed modes, as the Arimba device is a 802.11b device, whereas other WiFi on campus is likely to be 802.11g. Your Intel adapter is able to do all four currently available 802.11 modes --- a/b/g/n.

To the networks that you most often connect to, you can set your laptop to automatically detect. Whether you connect using Vista's builtin Wireless utility, or use an Intel tool included in the driver download, you... Read more

Recently, I found my Intel 4965agn wireless lan adapter on my T61 laptop automatically disabled after I connected to the public wireless network (no password required) in my university. Sometimes it could work for 3-4 hours, but sometimes it could only survive for few minutes.When the adapter was disabled, I cannot start it in any way except restart my laptop.But this phenomenon never happened in my apartment, where the wireless network has a password requirement.Anybody has the same experience or any solution? Thanks. BTW, My T61 is 7662-CTO. This problem happened on both Vista Ultimate 32x and XP SP3.Message Edited by musicx on 03-02-2009 11:19 AM

Answer:[Problem] Intel Wireless Card 4965agn Disabled for NO reason

Same problem... I've had this issue and reported it many times with no results from Lenovo or IBM. My card is an intel 3945ABG, and the same issue - not  problem on some networks and a disaster at school (many access points and a WPA-Enterprise security). I have taken out access connections and tried the intel pro wireless software.. while it hasn't fixed the problem, it's better. About once a week my card just turns off - disables itself somehow. The light goes out, and it disables itself in the device mangler (red x) but I can't re-enable it, the device manager just crashes. If I flick the Wifi switch, nothing, click enable in the pro wireless software, nothing. I have unchecked the "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" everything....  Someone from Lenovo, please give us an answer about this... I think this happens on most computers (all 4 thinkpads in my class have this issues), just rarely enough that no one complains. Is this a firmware issue? a irq issue? What do you need to solve this? whiteatom

As many others, I found that my new out of the box T61 was unable to connect to wireless routers.  After some troubleshooting, I found the problem was the power management property for the wireless card was set to low. I have my laptop power settings set to maximum performance both on the battery and when plugged in. Still, every time I reboot or come out of standby, I find I can't connect to the internet and when I go to the device manager and check, I find that the Power Management property is set back to low for my Intel 4965AGN wireless card.  This happens with the "use default value" unchecked and also with it checked.  The transmit power property always stays on high though. So, yes, I can get the wireless working by manually changing this every time I start up or come out of standby, but how do I force the power management property to stay on a high setting and not keep resetting to low?  What other software has the power to keep resetting this value, and can I stop it? I am currently using the Thinkvantage Power Manager, but I have uninstalled the Access Connections software as I found it to be entirely too frustrating for my use.  (perhaps part of that early experienced frustration was due to this power management issue)  I manage my wireless networks using XP network connections.  I've had my laptop for about 4 days now.  I absolutely love it, but this and a few other hardware issues continue to plague...

It is possible to replace the wifi card that brought the Satellite L100-108 (Intel 3945ABG) for the one Intel 4965AGN?
Both cards are mini pci-e and the chipset on the motherboard (with the Everest says only that it is Toshiba), is the Intel i945GM.

Thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite L100-108: Upgrade from Intel 3945 WLan to Intel 4965agn


Why you want to upgrade the WLan card?
I mean the Intel 3945ABG provide three different WLan standards.
OK, the Intel 4965AGN provides the 802.11 N standard but this standard cannot be used because the WLan card would need 3 wire wlan antenna?
As far as I know the L100-108 has been equipped with two wires Wlan antenna which is designed for A B and G WLan standard.

I have a T61 running XP with the Intel 4965AGN WiFi adapter.  I am connecting to an AirLink 101 300N router configured as WPA2 PSK with AES encription to support 300 Mbps connections.  My wife's desktop connects at 300Mbps using an AirLink 101 300N USB adapter, and my old T21 connects at 300Mbps using and Airlink 101 300N cardbus adapter.  The Intel adapter doc implies it should work at 300Mbps, but connects at 150Mbps. I have looked at the driver parameters and installed the latest Intel drivers from the Lenovo site.  Any suggestions on what I can do to get the Intel 4965AGN to connect at 300Mbps.

Your Airlink operates only in the 2.4~2.5GHz WiFi band.  A fully 802.11n Draft 2 compliant device, like the Intel 4965AGN, will only connect at ~270Mps for devices which support operation in the 5GHz WiFi band. When running in the 2.4~2.5GHz WiFi band they will only connect at ~130Mbps. If you want to achieve ~270Mbps connections with fully 802.11n Draft 2 compliant devices you need a router which supports 5Ghz band operation, or supports dual band operation in both 2.4Ghz and 5GHz WiFi bands. Running 40Mhz bonded channels in the 2.4~2.5GHz WiFi band to achieve ~270Mbps operation is generally problematic and it is prone to have mutual interference with 802.11b/g WiFi traffic in the vicinity.  Cheers, Bill

Hi Walterh7, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
If you at any time you get more than 54Mbps, you have a 4965AGN.
To get the fastest speeds you need to set WPA2 AES-only.
At short range you should get 130Mbps at 2.4GHz, or 300Mbps at 5GHz.

I have the same issue here. I have tried every means posted on the web, removing the Access Connection, maximized the power, the same problem still exists. I think I need to go buy another wireless LAN card but wonder why Lenovo doesn't know how to fix the problem?

Hello - Intel 4965agn driver on x64 BSOD with large xfers when connected at link speed negotiated at N!!!! This seems to affect a lot of people. Does anyone know if a patch has been released? Intel has released a couple of driver revs since this issue was 1st observed, but none of them addresses the issue (several months ago!!!) At this point, I am a fraction of a sec away from dumping the Intel hardware and going with Atheros. I am only hesitating because I don't want to trade one set of problems for another (ie. I don't know much about Atheros stability and performance under x64 with N routers). Thanks, Michel

Answer:X61s will not accept Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN

The BIOS has a whitelist of supported wireless cards. You need a Lenovo branded 4965agn card or else the BIOS will not allow you to boot the computer until you remove the card. The Intel 4965agn wireless card you are looking for is the FRU 42T0865.

I have an R61 ThinkPad with 4 gig RAM, Vista 64, T9300, and the Intel 4965AGN wireless network card. The 4965 can connect to the wireless network (WPA2-AES), browse the web, download files, etc. The problem is the network card dies when attempting to copy large files on the network. The status light blinks, and then about 30 seconds into the copy, the light goes solid and the connection is dead. No repair connection efforts succeed. The only cure is to reboot.I have tried the drivers at the Intel and Lenovo sites. Each has slightly different results, but all result in the 4965 becoming non-responsive. I have completely uninstalled drivers when switching between the different versions. I have tried driver only and driver/software installs with no success.There are 3 other wireless computers on the network that can copy without a problem. The router is an N router. The other computers have G connections.What is the problem? More important, what is the solution? Bad card? (I received the notebook recently, and this has never worked.)

Answer:Intel 4965AGN Wireless Networking Crashing on Large Transfers

kamiller42, welcome to the forum,
I don't have a Vista TP with me at the moment, so you might have to look around a little for the following settings.
It sounds as though this could be a power management problem. If you are using Access Connections you need to ensure that in each profile you have best network performance selected in Wireless Settings / Further Settings.
There are also power management settings in Network Devices and in Device Manager, (advanced properties of adapter), which you should change as well to ensure that Windows cannot reduce power to, or turn the adapter off.

I also have an ASIX AX88772A USB2.0 Fast Etherner Adapter as part of a Toshiba port replicator which works fine. I have clened the registry of all errors.

Any advice on what I could do to finally solve this problem?

Answer:Satellite A300 - code 31 with Intel 4965AGN network adapter


What drivers have you reinstalled exactly? Normally if error code 31 appears in device manager it should be enough to reinstall only the driver. You can find it here: => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

You can install the driver if you go to device manager and select the WLAN card. Right click on it and select ?Update Driver?. Don?t forget to choose the advanced installation where you can choose the driver yourself.

Type: 7764-CTO S/N: L3-xxxxx OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Driver version: In a nutshell, my WiFi has stopped working overnight; that is, it had been working flawlessly for more than a year, and one day when I woke up it decided to quit. Here's what happens when I turn the radio on now: it will scan for APs as usual, but only report a fraction of the list as it used to - it may not report even the preferred APs, which it had no problems connecting to before - and never make a connection. On some rare occasions, it might be successful at making a connection, but the connection would be reported as limited (i.e. no Internet access) and it would not stay connected for more than a few seconds. 90% of the time the 802.11 radio would try connecting, fail, and power off. Here's what I have tried: I have tried updating to the latest driver, as well as reverting back to the Windows 7 bundled driver. I have tried making connections to several working networks (e.g. friend's home, office, cafes, etc) to rule out my router being the source of the problem. I have also tried running the Ubuntu LiveCD to see if it would work under a different OS. Obviously, nothing has worked. For those who are curious, ethernet connection is working fine. I'm leaning toward it being a hardware failure. Does anyone have other thoughts and perhaps even a solution?

Hi everyone!

I've recently did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate onto my Toshiba Satellite U400 laptop. For the most part I was online with a wired connection, and when I finally went to wireless, I started getting BSODs.

This SAME behaviour happened to me when I had Vista Home Premium SP2 installed before hand. I tried Ubuntu linux for a while and the wifi worked fine! (so maybe not a hardware issue? but a driver issue?)

I can make the BSOD repeatedly when flipping through picture albums on facebook for example. I have attached the debugging files in the hopes that someone with more technical knowledge can help me. I look forward to solving this problem once and for is very frustrating

Answer:[SOLVED] Windows 7 Ultimate BSOD when on Wifi (Intel 4965agn)

Hi -

I am finding 2 basic bugchecks in the dumps submitted -

0x9f - a driver is in an inconsistent power state
0x19 - bad pool header - the pool was already corrupted when the caller arrived

Ironically, both Intel wifi and your Ethernet drivers were named as the probable causes; I believe the Toshiba driver and webcam driver may be the real culprit(s) here -

TVALZ_O.SYS Thu Nov 08 19:07:46 2007 (4733CF02) - Toshiba
UVCFTR_S.SYS Thu Jun 26 01:25:19 2008 (4863526F) - Webcam driver

yk62x86.sys Mon Feb 23 06:44:18 2009 (49A2B642) - Marvel Yukon Ethernet
netw5v32.sys Thu Mar 26 09:10:37 2009 (49CBA8FD) - Intel wifi 5100/4965/39xx

The Marvel Yukon & Intel wifi drivers look fine to me. I suggest that you go after the Toshiba driver 1st, then the webcam driver -- check Toshiba for updates. If none, you'll have to disable the services related to them/ un-install the devices. The 1st w/ 2007 timestamp has caused problems in Vista and would most certainly do the same in Windows 7.

Hi, I have an X61 with Vista Business 32bits and the Wireless card (Intel Wifi 4965AGN) does not work anymore. Here is the chronology of events: - A few days ago I realized that the Fn+F5 hot key was not working.- I tried to solve this problem by uninstalling the Intel wifi driver and reinstalling.- Uninstall was OK. When I restarted the computer, the system automatically detected the Wifi card as new hardware and tried to install the driver, but I got an error message "Unable to open the driver specific registry key for this device".- I have tried to uninstall and install the driver several times but I have been unable to fix the problem.- I have downloaded the latest driver from the Intel and Lenovo websites but the problem persists.- When I access the device manager there is an exclamation point on the Wifi4965AGN. If i try to update driver it returns a message saying thatthe driver is up to date.- I have tried to recover the system from the last backup point but when the system restarts it says that there was an undetermined error in the recovery and that it didn't happen. It seems like there is something wrong in my Windows registry but I don't know enough to solve it. It doesn't seem like a big problem because I actually created it by trying to fix the Fn+F5 problem so I should be able to solve it! Any ideas before I reinstall Windows? 

Answer:X61 Vista32: Cannot install driver for Intel Wifi 4965AGN (unable to open registry key)

You may want to check the following again just to be sure everything was done 1) Make sure the correct driver for Intel Wifi 4965 AGN is installed (Do you have XP or Vista?)2) Use System Restore (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Systems Tools -> System Restore) to rollback your settings to an earlier calendar date prior to the  time the issue has occurred. Were you trying to restore using Microsoft's System Restore, or using the Rescue and Recovery tool? If this fails, you may need to reload Windows.Power off, then power on and tap F11 repeately to access Rescue and Recovery from our recovery partition.  Hope this helps, Mark

If your current card is 4965 AG, there is no means of enabling the "N" spectrum, simply replace the card.
Yes, you can upgrade to 4965AGN card, just leave the middle connector open.
It will do 300Mbps just fine on a dual band router.

In any case, the 4965AGN does not have a significantly differemet thermal characteristis from the 3945ABG.  It is the Atheros based WiFi card fitted to some X60 systems which is frequently reported as being a contribuing factor to hot plam rests.

Answer:Using a standard USB or PCMCIA Wireless card instead of the internal 4965AGN

OK So I bought a Linksys WPC100 which is a cardbus Wi-Fi G CardBus PCMCIA card.Interestingly in the local BestBuy the majority of adapters (USB and PCMCIA) do not list Vista as one of the operatiing systems they support. Also strangely even of those with a Vista Certified logo the majority do not list Vista as one of their supported operating systems. Clearly something non intuitive about being Vista Certified or the box specifications are generally not correct. I had the list of Vista drivers from the Linksys web site with me and it didn't correlate even as a subset or superset either with certification or with listing the operating system as supported. In fact not a single adaptor had all three factors, a driver available on the linksys site, certification and the operating system listed as supported. Getting over this by now mild frustration I bet on the WPC100. The driver on the disk provided installed and operated the card form Vista Business.When the machine is booted with the card installed (I haven't tested behaviour with standby and sleep or insertion while running enough to say yet) then the card appears as a second wireless adaptor. Connection Manager reports that the integrated AGN card is either disabled by the BIOS or hardware switch and Connection Manager does not function. This is OK. At least one knows where one is and that the connections being seen by Vista are from the PCMCIA card.Unfortunately the problems with the access point continued so all this exerc... Read more

If your network is secured disable encryption on the router until you get a successful connection.

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

I own a Belkin Wireless G Modem/Router. I connect my computer to it via Realtek RTL8139/810x wired network adapter.

Just a moment ago, my computer could not connect to the internet. When I ran the troubleshooting tool, it suggested to "Make sure the other end of the cable is plugged into the router. If that does not help, try a new cable."

I checked the LED light on the network card, and it appears to be solid red. I'm not too sure about its usual colour when it was working fine. The modem's LED shows that it detected a connection from the cable. I tried to replace the cable with another one, but it the light is still red and the modem still shows that it detects a connection from the cable, but my windows is not able to connect to the modem. It failed to detect any connection.

I am currently using a D-link wireless USB adapter to connect to the modem.

Can anyone tell me what is wrong? Is there a problem with my settings or is the network card damaged?

Answer:Network card does not connect to my router

Have you checked the device manager to see if the onboard NIC is having problems?

I have a DW1520 wireless card in my laptop and I can't connect to my friends router, which is a Netgear Wireless N-150 router. My computer has been able to connect to every other N or G router it's come across which leads me to believe that there is either an incompatibility issue between my laptop and the router or there are settings within the router that need to be changed. What are some steps I can take to try and resolve this problem?

I've got a central computer that connects wirelessly to a router that connects to the internet.

I want to plug a secondary device into the NIC of this machine and bridge the connections so that my secondary device can access the internet.

When I bridge the connections, the internet is not accessable at all on the machine and the secondary device cannot see it either.

What am I doing wrong? Is there another way to do this?

Answer:Cannot get NIC to connect to router through PCI wireless card

Im not really following you on this.. You say you have:

AP/Router combo, which connects to the internet
Computer with a PCI card, and a wifi card (Wifi used to connect to the router).
A second pc to connect to the internet, shared through the 1st pc?

If so, dont bridge the connection. Run windows' "set up a small office/home office network" and there will be three or four options in there with pictures. One should be "this computer connects directly to the internet, other computers connect to the internet through this pc".

Secondary NIC IP should change to, and the clients will get an IP via DHCP.

I just built a new computer, and I have been trying to hook it up to my network. I have a Airlink101 MIMO(their version of Linksys SRX) router(offbrand I know) but it works.
In my new computer is a Airlink 101 pci card. It won't connect to my router. I am able to connect to my neighbors network barely, so I know the card works. I have the exact same network card in another computer in the house, and it works fine.
I thought it could be the encryption so I turned that off, and it still didnt work. I repaired it multiple times, but it kept giving me an error box for "not able to connect to router"
I installed the drivers for the PCI card like i did for the other card in the other computer, but that did not help. I installed and updated the drivers, and tried uninstalling them too.
I realize it says there is only 2-3 bars of connection beetween my computer and the router, but that shouldn't be a problem.
Why won't my card connect to my router?


Answer:wireless pci card wont connect to certain router

do they both use the same protocol? I.e. 802.11 g? is one proprietary and the other not? is the router a pre -n draft router? If so it may not work....
if all the answers are no to the above, then your problem likes elsewhere. I think your problem is that your router is non-standard.

hope someone can help Ive a Netgear router connected to my cable box and the kids have a Netgear wireless card in the pc in their bedroom. i can see the router on their pc at100% signal but i cannot connect to it. it used to work but not any more ive deleted the software taken the card out but still no joy the router seems to be working its getting a bit frustrating

Answer:Network Card Sees Router but cannot connect

Try "removing" any existing profiles click here and then go through the procedure to "Connect" again. In other words, run the wireless adapter's software, scan for "Available Wireless Networks", find and highlight the one that matches your router's SSID (network name) and select the option to "Connect" to it. You should be prompted to enter any WEP or WPA encryption key and, once "Connected", the wireless adapter should get its IP address by DHCP from the router and you should have network and internet access.There is a difference between the Wireless Network Adapter and Router communicating with a good signal and "Connecting" (as in "logging in") to your Wireless network.

I am trying to connect an old Dell laptop wirelessly to our home network.
Visitors with newer laptops can easily connect, once given our password, but in the program provided for the Trumobile card, there does not seem to be anywhere to enter our password. It shows the signal strength as exellent, but actual connection as limited and we cannot connect. Network Connections/Wireless Connection/Properties shows nothing helpful. If we connect it with a LAN cable, directly to the MBR1210, it works, but this is not convenient. What have we missed?

Inspiron 1100, running XP
Trumobile insertable wireless card
Bell Netgear MBR1210 cellular modem/router

Answer:Trumobile card will not connect to modem/router

do you see the wireless network - I assume you are using the trumobile manager from Dell or a Dell manager- you could try stopping that manager and using the windows WZC (windows zero configuration) manager

you would stop / start the process in services
Start> Run > type CMD to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

Type the following command

Control Panel>
Administrative Tools>

now look down the list of services - see if WZC is stopped and then look for Dell or truemobile service - post back any names here and we can confirm if needed

Hi guys

Have often browsed this fount of knowledge without actually posting but now I am stumped and really need help...

I have recently moved house and had new broadband installed complete with new Netgear N300 router. Now I am unable to connect to the internet even though my desktop says it can see the wireless network (though it does say it is unidentified). The network connection diagram in Vista suggests the problem is between the internet and the router but I know this is not the case as I have successfully connected other devices via the wireless network. I know the router is N and the card is G but the router should still work with the older card, right?

I have tried to download the latest drivers from Belkin for a version 8 F5D7000 but for some reason they wont install (when I click on the install file it thinks for a second then does nothing). No idea why this is the case.

Could it be anything to do with the fact that the card, being older, is WEP and my router has no option for WEP, only WPA onwards? If so, would the latest driver from Belkin in effect 'upgrade' my card to allow it to carry same encryption as the router?

If I can't solve then I'll no doubt end up buying a new PCI card but I didn't want to have to bother right at this moment.

Any help would be fantastic!

Clueless one here.

I purchased a Dell Inspiron 4000 Laptop through an old workplace several years ago and want to connect it to the internet using a 3COM FE575C-3COM 10/100 PCMCIA card with a dongle. The laptop is still set up to connect through a VPN that no longer exits (old workplace went under). and I'm not sure if that's hindering things. That'd be great to erase all settings for that if someone wanted to walk me through it, but that's not the main reason I need help. I am the "admin" and have the "admin" password on the laptop.

First off, the laptop can see the hardware (ethernet card) when I insert it, but the connection is NOT showing up on my Netgear router that is connected to my Comcast Cable Modem (which is currently working on my MAC and how I'm typing here). When I go to set up internet connection on my laptop, I'm pretty clueless as to what to do (obviously not dial-up). I've created about 2 new VPN's, but nothing works. I don't have wireless, but I did have a wireless card that was able to get me onto the internet a few times (presumably mooching bandwidth which I don't want to do), so I know it can work or at least should work with a correct card set-up. I don't know if the hardware I bought is bad, the internet connection is just not set up correctly and/or why my router is not even seeing my second computer.

I experience the following problem with a new one week old Lenovo X220 built with Intel Advanced-N 6205: After 3-5 hours it disconnects from a wifi router and would not be able to connect to it until I reboot the router. It happened the first time on Friday, I was connected to our Verizon FIOS router and after 5 hours I lost connection and won't be able to connect for 2 hours trying every possible thing until I rebooted  the router, what I didn't have to do with countless number of other laptops/cell phones. Now X220 loses wifi connection every 3 hours and won't be able to connect until the router is restarted. All other devices in a house work perfectly fine, my roommates probably already hate me for rebooting the router. Router: Actiontec M1424WR (Verizon FIOS) Other devices which were and still are able maintain connections with this router for many hours w/o similar problem:- my old Dell Latitude E6400- my Samsung Captivate cell phoneand bunch of other HP laptops, macbooks etc. What I tried and what did not help:- rebooting X220- turning X20 off/on- installing the latest drivers for Intel 6205 card for the Intel website- installing/uninstalling Intel Wifi tools and Access Connections- restoring from a backup (not a complete factory setting restore)- setting DNS/IPs manually for IPv4 and turning off IPv6 I tried to collect some logging with netsh tracing and it only tells that the driver disconnects during acquisition.Some clue I dis...

Answer:Wifi issue with X220 (intel wifi card); It stops connecting to a router after 3 hours

Just got my Y510P laptop and after the installation of Chrome, I noticed that the text are blurry. That bugs me!! I tried to set the GT 755M as my default GPU card, but for some reason it is not letting me do it. It's running Intel's 4600 card as the default GPU card. So I tried to disable the Intel card, but after doing that, I can't even access my GT 755M card.  Not sure how to get about in setting my 755M card as the default GPU. I already installed the latest driver but its not helping. This is not even an SLI setup, so I don't know why it is doing this. I'm guessing Windows 8.1 is the main reason. Anyways, if I can't fix this, I'll most probably return it. But any help in fixing this would be great. Thanks

Answer:laptop Y510P is not using my GT 755M card but Intel's 4600 card. Default GPU is Intel 4600!!

Bump and Ditto on this issue. My y510p came with the Dual SLI ultrabay. I recently pulled the second GPU so I could install a second harddrive, and now instead of the GT 750M, my drivers default to the Intel 4600, but not everywhere; Photoshop is using my Geforce, PhysX is using my Geforce, but the monitors are using the 4600. STRANGE. BTW alamak, there are two reasons your text may be blurry, unrelated to the graphics driver:1. Are you using an external monitor on the VGA port? I have two monitors plugged in, the monitor plugged into HDMI has crisp text, the VGA monitor is blurry. They are identical monitors. (I wish this thing came with a DisplayPort like my old Dell XPS 15, I could plug four monitors into one port!)2. Your DPI settings are set larger than 100%. Chrome especially has this problem. If you are using a DPI higher than 100%, Chrome looks awful. Fix this by going to (right-click Desktop > Screen Resolution > Make text bigger or smaller > change the slider to Smallest). However this will set your desktop to use the LCD's native resolution, and everything will be tiny.

Dear all,

I own a satellite A100-383 PSAARE. I would like to upgrade the wifi card, as the one it's installed right now (PRO/Wireless 3945ABG), does not give all the speed the line can achieve (100Mb down). Does anyone know if the card intel 5300 AGN is compatible with my laptop. If it is not I would very much appreciate suggestions.

Thank you

Answer:Satellite A100 - Upgrading WIFI card from Intel 3945ABG to Intel 5300AGN

Don?t think that someone can give you a proper answer since the compatibility depends on the BIOS?
If the BIOS would support the new WLan card, then you could use it for sure?

The point is that motherboards is able to handle the miniPCI WLan cards? the module is just plugged to the miniPCI slot and its removable?
So there is just an question regarding the BIOS support and I?m afraid you will need to test this at your own risk

It came with the famously terrible Centrino N 2230. From day one it was shotty and on the 2nd day of ownership completely stopped working until I installed 2 drivers and the annoying Intel PRO-Set Wireless utility from their site (no patch available directly from Lenovo).

I was trying to make my sister-in-law's wireless connection secure (they've had wireless set up for awhile unsecured), and all seemed to go well until magically, it didn't. It allowed me to set up a password -WPA2/Personal, it was fine, other devices (ipod Touch and another laptop) connected to the network by putting in the right key. HOWEVER, the original laptop, now wants no part of connecting to this network. It finds the network, but doesn't even let me get to a stage at which I need to enter the WPA key. It automatically says it can't connect, and is very useless when I hit "Diagnose the problem". I am only marginally less clueless than the people that asked for my help, so please don't get too technical on me. I have spent hours trying to figure out what the problem is, and though I know it's obviously something with the computer's setting, I don't know what that is.

no, that will not work as it is only a 'wire connector' and not a signal converter.

here's how; do not put anything into the RJ11 slot on the ADSL WiFi router.

connect an ethernet cable from a LAN slot on the router connected to the phone line
TO another lan slot on the WiFi router. This will cause the WiFi router to act very much
link a switch. Just be sure the DHCP service (on this device) is disabled and only the primary router has DHCP active.

You will still need to setup the WiFi configuration (but do so ONLY with a wired connection to it).

Bit of an odd problem here, hoping someone could offer solutions until I have access to the router settings.
So, I just moved into the 3rd floor of a house here in Boston. I have a desktop, and so I have always used ethernet cables. Unfortunately, the router is on the second floor of the home here, and it's impossible for me to run a cable, so I went out and purchased a wireless adapter (netgear n300). The adapter is great, not a problem. The problem is, when scanning for networks, I can see his router, which is using WEP. I connect, but it refuses to acquire an ip. I can connect to other networks fine, just not the one I need. The man who lives downstairs won't be home for a few hours, so I won't have access to the router until then. I have tried to get to the router from my desktop, but don't seem to be working, so I have no idea what the default ip could be. Are there any other possible explanations for why this could be happening? Also, what should I do in the router settings when I get access later on tonight?

Any help is severely appreciated!

As far as I know the modem/routers provided by Sky are customised for use with their service, the DG834 models they supplied were not the same as the standard retail versions. If this is indeed the case, then it is possible that the modem/router you've acquired won't work with Sky. Perhaps another Sky user can confirm if this is the case.

Hi everyone. I have a situation I just can't figure out. I am using the Comcast gateway router that they provided me. I have not changed very many settings on it. I have the firewall on low, using WPA/WPA2-PSK-TKIP/AES, and everything else is pretty much default.

The problem is this, I have a Samsung galaxy tab 3 7 inch, iPad mini, and two iPhones. Every day (sometimes multiple times per day) I have to reset my router for any of them to connect. I happens mostly on the Android device. While this is happening my windows 8 laptop and windows 7 desktop stay connected and can browse the net. The network shows up on all of the devices, but when I try to connect with the password I get some variation of "cannot connect to network." The only thing that happens on my PCs is that I cannot connect to the router's IP address with any credentials. When I reboot the router, all devices can connect and work fine and I can then connect to the router's ip address. It's weird and I'm not sure what to check next. Any suggestions?

Answer:I cant connect tablet or phones to my router without rebooting the router

Since you're using Comcast-provided equipment, it would be a good idea to give their tech support dept. a call about this issue.

I've seen a few cases in the past where ISP provided equipment needs tweaking to connect to all devices properly.

My small home network is connected to a Z100G Zone Alarm router via wires. This router has WiFi but I do not use it as it is not wireless N capable. I would like to have wireless N to stream movies to a wireless N BluRay player. I would like to keep the Z100G because of the firewall function.

Can I just connect a new wireless N router to the Z100G? If so, would it then be best to connect all the network computers to the new router either via wired or wireless?

First I would like to say hello to everyone in the community as this is my first post. I would like to set up Linksys wireless router(wrt160n) with a Dlink wired router(DLR-604),The wireless would be the host router and I would like to isolate the wired router from that network,to protect my main computer's(2computer's plus network printer) from from my children s and friend's machines I connect to the wireless or wired ports on the Linksys.Thanks in advance, any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated .Cheers

Answer:Solved: Connect wireless router and wired router

This should be pretty easy. Just connect the D-Link router's WAN port to one of the Linksys router's LAN ports. The computers connected to the D-Link router will be isolated from the Linksys connected computers by the D-Link router's NAT firewall.

I own two routers - D-Link DSL-504 (ADSL, not wireless) and D-Link DIR-635 (wireless).

The set-up used to be like this:
- Internet (ADSL) cable pluged in DSL-504 router
- PC connected to DSL-504 via Ethernet port
- DIR-635 connected to DSL-504 (Ethernet port to 'Internet' port) - DSL-504 works as a 'modem'
- Laptop wirelessly connected to DIR-635

Everything has worked (note: it wasn't me who set this up).

Unfortunatelly I have reseted the DIR-635 (wireless router) because of some troubles. Now the wireless router doesn't connect to the Internet. I can connect either computer via cable with the first router and it works like a dream. Computers can also see the DIR-365 router when connected to it via cable, but it does not see the Internet.

I've switched the setup on and off several times. Cables work. Computers work, they can see Internet from other sources.

I guess I need to configure the wireless router in some certain way, but I really have no idea, how.

I'd be grateful for your help.

Answer:Solved: Router cannot connect to Internet (via another router used as a modem)

Probably IP Address conflict as both D-Links would usually use for default internal (LAN) IP.

You would need to change the LAN IP address of the DIR-615 to another subnet such as for a modem LAN port to router WAN (Internet) port connection unless the DIR-615 can be set as an access point. Will need to check the User Manual to see. Will pull up a PDF and check.

Another option would be to set up using the following method by John Will.
Connecting two soho routers in a network
Tutorial from Johnwill from the Networking Forum

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 through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, 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.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

I have a Lenovo Ideapad U330p laptop, and I've tried to replace the wireless network card on this model from the Intel 7260 N to an Intel 7260 AC. But the hell did I get for it, because when I started up the computer, I got an error that caused your computer could not boot.
I have checked this error message on Google search and on some online forums on the internet and it seems that you at Lenovo have added to the list in the BIOS / UEFI called 'white list' that controls the hardware of your computer based on a list where products is the = Approved, and products that are not on the list = Non Approved / Blocked for this model and make that you can not upgrade their computer needed the drivers are the same as the original Intel 7260 N, the only thing that prevents me from Upgrade my computer's 'White List' and should be removed from off the BIOS so that the end user can upgrade their computer without having to buy a new computer for the 700-1100 dollars, when a new network card only cost 25 dollars.
Had I known this before I bought my Lenovo computer, you had never bought a Lenovo PC, but continued with HP that you can upgrade without problems.
I will not buy any new Lenovo computer, as long as you use these methods.
I think it is wrong of you as a manufacturer to do it this way, I jar had HP before and have upgraded them several times without problems, but now I wanted to try a different manufacturer because of design, price, weight, ... Read more

Answer:Can connect to wireless router BUT cannot connect to internet :(

Try putting static IP addresses in to your wireless network connection.
By the looks of it it seems your wireless connection cannot get an IP address automatically via DHCP.

Let me know if this works or you need help doing this.

My dell inspiron 1318 won't connect to the router so I can't get internet. I have tried it both wireless and with the ETHERNET (noticed my stupid mistake in the title once I'd posted and it's the only thing I can't edit!!) cable but no luck. I read a previous thread (now closed) where a member called agilchrist suggested doing this -

Answer:laptop won't connect to router with or without router but can find it - help please!

So it can see the router's SSID, but can't connect to it?

Did you try the Window's troubleshooter? Might be a long shot, but something may be turned off.

Could also be malware that is preventing you from connecting. Try running Malwarebytes.

That's all I can think of.

Any advice is greatly appreaciated...Cheers

Answer:Can i connect a Wireless Router to a wired router

Very simple:

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router 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 through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

I'm trying to add a second router (linksys wrt54g) to my primary router (thomson tg782 ) via an ethernet cable in order to have wireless internet in the furthest part of my house but I'm not sure if they're compatible with each other.Can a linksys router be connected to a thomson router?

Answer:connect a second router (lynksys) to a thomson router

If you can configure the routers properly, any two routers can be used together. You will need to enter the setup on one of the routers and disable DHCP, so that only one router gives out IP addresses. Other than that, you should be able to link the two routers together with an ethernet cable and it should work fine.You've been helped by a 15 year old.
