Why are you disconnecting the cable? If you need to do this disconnect from the internet first as it could be causing this problem...

I'm trying to get a Windows XP Home laptop to connect to the web wirelessly. The modem/router (leased from my DSL provider) gives me an address & other network settings fine. I can get to the modem/router & bring up it's configuration webpage, but that's all. I can't even ping my network printers ro PCs. Other wireless computers on the network have no problems. A wired connection works completely fine (web = OK). Here's a list of things I've tried:

netsh interface ip delete arpcache
netsh int ip reset /log.txt
netsh winsock reset catalog
ipconfig /flushdns
verified wireless hard switch is on
restarted dhcp, dns, windows zero configuration via services.msc
scanned for viruses
reinstalled wireless drivers
tried a known working wireless usb adapter - same issue
disabled firewalls
flushed IE8 browser (temp files, cookies, etc.)
reset IE8 to fresh install defaults
sfc /scannow
disabled windows zero configuration & used the Intel Proset Wireless software

Anyone have any other ideas? Thanks in advance!
 

Answer:laptop wireless not working, wired is fine

Greetings, chiepler.

Looks like you've tried everything I would have suggested. The only other things I can offer are:

1. Make sure your proxy settings are clear.

2. Boot to a Linux distro (Mint is a good one), let Mint/Firefox try to access, see if you get a change in symptoms.

So this morning, out of nowhere, the wired internet connection on my desktop pc stopped working like normal. I'm 'connected' but every webpage just hangs on loading and occasionally after 10+ minutes I'll get the tiniest fraction of the site loaded. So there is some sort of connection going through but there's obviously a problem.

Wireless works fine on all the other laptops in the house, I've tested other ethernet cables to my desktop pc to no avail and I've tested wired connections from my laptop and they work fine.

I ran a scan for viruses/malware etc 2 days ago and came up clean, but today I ran one and found 3 malware infections. Two were infected registry keys, which seem were infected by PUP.Optional.SilentInstall.A and PUP.Optional.SProtector.A. The third was a infected file 'conetinuetioSaVee/uninstall.exe' which was infected by the above PUP.Optional.SilentInstall.A. They are now quarantined and removed.

I'm guessing my internet problem could have been caused by these infections changing some settings somewhere which took affect after I shut down my desktop last night. Now they are removed, but these settings are still wrong. I'm unable to log into my router from my desktop, it just hangs, but I'm able on my laptops. I'm running Windows 7 and using a Netgear router DGN2000.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm stumped!

I have sort of an odd problem. I have a desktop computer that is connect to the internet wirelessly. Everything works fine there. I also have an xbox360 connected to the desktop via an Ethernet cable. I use this connection primarily to stream movies from my computer to the xbox. Today in the middle of a movie the movie stopped playing and gave me an error saying xbox isn't connected to the computer any more.
I checked the physical connection and everything was fine. I looked at my desktop (running windows xp) and noticed my LAN connection wasn't properly running. It said I have limited or no connectivity. So I tried repairing it, renewing it, disabling and re-enabling it. Nothing worked. In fact I get this error: "An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out."

I also noticed I have a 169.254.xxx.xxx IP address, if that helps at all:
EDIT: Forgot to mention I also reinstalled the driver for the LAN card.

Hello, I am new here. I have an HP Pavilion entertainment laptop. Everything was functioning just fine. Then, windows update happened. It was a critical update that cannot be undone. I performed the update. Immediately after all of the preinstaled HP software quit working. I fought and fought and I have most of it working again but all of it is very buggy and crashes a lot. HP Help and support and HP health no longer work. I had to install the vista versions and I run them in compatibility mode. They still don't work rite. Another critical update was released and then my internet port on the side stopped working. My laptop cannot connect to the internet through it but will via wireless. In the hardware manager my internet card shows up as the driver failing to load. It is Realtek PCB family controller. Uninstalls and re installs don't work. I even used a registry cleaner (registry first aid) to uninstall it so as to remove all the registry keys. Letting windows try to install the driver fails as does letting the realtek software try. Also, every reinstall just adds a number to the end of it. I am on Realtek (3) now. I need to get this driver to work but it will not. I am not seeing a whole lot about it so I guess this isn't a common problem. Everything else I have works fine so far as I can tell. I also tried using the file browser to hunt down all things realtek related and delete them. Windows just gives me the new hardware box, puts back what I del... Read more

Answer:Wired internet jack not working but wireless works just fine

Run Windows System Restore - choose a restore point prior to the installation of the Windows Update you mentioned -

What is the exact model number of the HP laptop - look on the label on the bottom.

Registry cleaners are unnecessary and can cause registry damage -

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!

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

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

Having issues with one of my PCs in my Home Network. I run DSL/Wireless Router and all my wireless devices run good but my ethernet connection on my Main PC's has issues. Hard to explain but it seems to work fine after booting machine but after a short while of surfing, it loses speed. It doesn't lose connection, just speed. Have done multiple speed tests and the same bad results. I have tested my laptop on the ethernet connection and seems to work fine. Replaced the PCI ethernet adapter in the machine and did not fix the problem. Tried all ports on the router, same results. Any assistance would be great!
 

Answer:Wireless Works Fine but Wired Does Not

Relevance 73.39%

Making a post because this has happened to not one, but TWO computers that I own and I'm completely baffled.
Basically what has happened to these computers is that they cannot seem to resolve DNS at all through a wired connection, but wireless is fine. Windows troubleshooting indicates that everything seems fine, it just can't get a response from the DNS server. I run ESET Smart Security on both machines, and uninstalling it actually does not fix the issue, as well as reinstalling network drivers, so I'm starting to pin it down to a Windows specific bug. Allowing the DNS address to be assigned or assigning it myself to Google or whatnot does not fix the issue. I run a myriad of programs unfortunately and it's going to be very difficult pinning it down to a specific executable that is causing the issue, at least to my limited knowledge, and I was wondering if anyone else had experienced a similar issue and would be able to share what caused it?

I can work around it with a stupid, weird fix of adding a USB NIC, which somehow, for some unknown alien reason, doesn't suffer from the DNS issue over time on both these systems.

I have an Acer laptop (Windows 7) and SMC router.

The laptop connects to the wireless network but it says 'no internet access'. Troubleshooting nets me the information that "the DNS Server isn't responding".

The laptop can easily connect to the internet via ethernet.
It also connects wirelessly without issue to my phone's hotspot.
I have other computers that connect wirelessly through the SMC router to the internet without issue.
The laptop used to connect to the internet wirelessly through this same router. I did not use the laptop for a couple of weeks and when I fired it up again the wireless would not go to the internet.

To recap, there is nothing wrong with the wireless adapter on the laptop. The router's wireless network is fine and dandy.

So how can I get the laptop to understand the wireless signal is fine so connect to the internet already?

Answer:Connected but no internet (wireless - wired is fine)

A friend who reads my online journal, suggested winsockfix. My laptop is 64-bit and winsockfix complained loudly that it did not work at 64-bit. I tapped the options anyway and soon it said to reboot and when I did, all was magically fixed!

With a wired connection I can get the high broadband speeds I would expect (up to 6Mbps), however when I connect to my new Orange Livebox router wirelessly (with a connection rating of Excellent) the broadband speed is less than 1Mbps. I have tried the obvious possibilities such as different wireless G cards/temporarily disabling the wirelss security etc. Could anyone please provide me with any possible answers?

Answer:Slow broadband going wireless, but fine wired.

There are many reasons why the wireless connection would be lower then wired.1. the location of the livebox (near metal objects or magnetic fields)2. Local radio interference3. the line provided by BT (ask them to check it)4. filters faulty (change it)5. the reported speed is acually incorrect)what it would not be is the network card or the livebox it they are talking to each other.

My computer will not connect to my router, unless I disable my firewall. I am using Panda Platinum Internet Security. I can connect to someone elses wireless router with the firewall enabled. I have tried to create exceptions within the software to let me connect, but it doesn't work. I keep the network card disabled when I am using the wireless. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software with the card enabled and the wireless card disabled, but it still wouldn't connect to the router without the firewall diasbled. I can connect wirelessly even though the card was disabled when I installed the software. I also tried Zone Alarm and that wouldn't let me connect either. I am running Windows XP Pro SP2. The network card is a Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet card. If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Can't connect to wired router, but wireless is fine.

Paragraphs

nice...

so I assume then that you are trying to connect via a wired link?
if so, then perhaps you could edit your post to help explain what the problem is?

You are having problems with your wired connection on a 1)laptop 2)desktop
You have ICF 1)enabled 2) disabled
You have tried uninstalling panda firewall shit and connecting 1)yes 2)no
When panda is installed, does your lan connection a) show up as connected but no traffic goes through or b) lan connection says 'no connection
What method are you using for ip addressing 1)DHCP 2)static
if answer to above was 2, then
Are your ip settings correct 1)yes 2)no

or i just totally misinterpreted your problem, in which case, i'm sorry

I bought a Belkin G Wireless Router about 8 months back.

Starting a few weeks ago, I've had to set a static IP address to my recently built computer (sitting at 192.168.2.10 right now) for it to not disconnect every few minutes.

I then noticed that no wireless devices (tested with 2 Laptops and Ipod Touch) could connect. If I restarted the router and did NOT connect anything to it, it would connect with local access only. If I attempt to set the router up using the CD that came with the packaging, it claims it cannot connect to the internet, and then proceeds to actually kick me off the net.

Does anyone have any clue what coulda caused this?

As far as I know, I've not changed anything.

So I just got the new Virgin Superhub 2 I set it up and everything connects fine but for some reason I'm getting the full speed through the wifi on my xbox/phone/laptop but my desktop which is wired straight to the router is only getting 3mbps max and 0.05 upload.

So I set it up into router mode and plugged in my old linksys which worked for a time but after about an hour will always disconnect sporadically. I called the Virgin engineer out and he replaced most of the wires and even some of the stuff out in the box in the street but had the same conclusion with wireless fine and desktop not.

It works limitedly Im writing this on my desktop but if I try to do anything more than surf reddit or other low bandwidth required things it will disconnect.

I know it is capable of working because for a time I had the computer running at over 50mbps and when I plugged directly into the modem it was fine but obviously only I could use it and nobody else then.

The other strange thing is when the laptop was plugged in via wire it seemed to work fine so it leads me to suggest I have some settings or drivers incorrectly setup.

I'm using a Windows 7 64bit PC

I should probably mention that I'm not that good with tech so if you do have a suggestion can you please explain simply

Hello,

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

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

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

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

I have found many similar problems to mine, but not the exact one so here goes.

HP Pavilion, Windows 7, 64 bit home premium, i7. Westell 327W wireless router (at&t version)

I have no problem at all connecting to the internet via the wireless connection in my new desktop. But often when I connect with the LAN enabled it simply refuses to connect. The problem is very repeatable with yahoo.com, att.com/speedtest and other sites. I can see and access the rest of my network fine wired only. And on the occasions I have been able to connect, the speed tests are fine.

I just have no idea why it occasionally refuses to connect (have not been able to connect to these sites for several hours now after multiple reboots) via wired and never has any issues over wireless. I have already disabled the router firewall and have the same issue with all non-windows services disabled.

Help!

I have a really weird situation with a customer whom i have set up broadband for....

Its all set up using my personal laptop as per the instructions from BT. Everything went without a hitch, and connected fine - all 4 lights on the router blue.

When i connect with a cable, everything runs just fine - download speeds of 200k+.

However when i connect to it wirelessly everything grinds to a halt. The wireless light on the router is blue (meaning no problem), the signal strength on my laptop is described as excellent, but still i have problems!

Ive tried changing the wireless settings from WPA to WEP and have tried a couple of different Channels for transmission. Ive also tried using the customers laptop which behaves in the same way (ie Cabled fine, Wireless crap). Any ideas from anybody?!

My laptop can connect wirelessly to my network, but it cannot connect via it?s wired NIC. Actually, skype will still work, but outlook mail and browsers do not.
The cat6 cable is ok. I have tested it on another computer. The NIC is ok. My wired connection works just fine at my other house (let?s call it Location 2), which has a similar setup. So, in summary?
At Location 1, my wireless connection receives an expected DHCP IP Address of 192.168?.
At location 2, my wireless AND wired connections both receive expected 192.168? addresses (I don?t connect them at the same time)
At Location 1, here is the problem, my wired connection receives a crazy address. When I ipconfig /release and /renew this wired address, it doesn?t change.

Any ideas? Thanks.

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

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

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

Any ideas?
 

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

On the pc that giving you trouble open this:

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

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

click on start
click on run
type: services.msc
scroll down for wireless zero configuration make sure that's enabled

also look for network connections and make sure that's enabled
also computer browser is enabled
make sure xp firewall (built-in is disabled)

SOLUTION: In typical techie fashion as soon as i ask for help I solve the problem. I did crtl + r -> ncpa.cpl -> properties -> configure -> advanced -> network access -> Type in the unique address seen for the network adapter when ipconfig is run, type it without dashes. This worked immediately.

My PC is Windows 8.1 and it hasn't had internet issues before. Last night it stopped connecting to the internet. This morning is has been the same. Wireless connections are working fine but my desktop doesn't have a wireless card so i need to fix the wired issue with it.

I've tried the ethernet cable on other devices and they work, so i think it must be PC settings. I PC restored to last night 7pm and it didn't fix it. I've tried ipconfig /release and /renew and it didn't work. I've tried uninstalling AVG and turning off firewalls. I still am getting the yellow triangle with "no internet access"

IPv4 Address 192.168.0.7
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 192.168.0.1

I've tried updating network card drivers and disabling and re-enabling it. Anyone able to help please?

Answer:Can't connect to internet wired from desktop. Other devices working fine.

and welcome to the Forum

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 or copy and paste the following command:

ipconfig/all > 0 & notepad 0

and press enter.

I have a belkin wireless/wired router, and it's really starting to stress me out. I have the wireless part working just fine, all my wireless computers connect to each other/the internet just fine. BUT, my wired computer is not connecting to the internet at all, but the DHCP is still assigning it an IP address and the computer thinks everything is fine. When I click on Internet Explorer, it says that the page cannot be displayed. It's driving me mad, can anyone help?

Okay I'm not too good with computers but this is my issue:
on the home network we have 2 computers hardwired to the router and then a wireless network which I use with my laptop.

Both the computers are unable to access the internet, when I go into cmd-->ipconfig both list the ethernet adapter as "media disconnected" . however I can still access the router configurations on both computers. On the router (linksys router) the internet light is lit up as are both 1 and 2 port connections (where the computers are connected). But still, no internet ("page load error")

However via the wireless network my laptop connects to the internet just fine! Can anyone help me??? thank you

oh the 2 computers are running windows xp, and my laptop has vista

thanks in advance
 

Answer:"Media disconnected" for 2 wired computers, wireless works fine

Pick one non-working machine and let's see if we can get that to work.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?

On the affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

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

When I connect a Vista x64 laptop via a wired connection to my home router, I am able to connect to a VPN with my VPN client, and all VPN resources are available.

When I try to do the same thing with the same laptop, with a wireless connection to my router, I can connect to the VPN with my VPN client, but no VPN resources are available (including internet access).

I have googled a lot... and I'm not sure why this is happening. There was even a microsoft knowledge base article on the subject, for which I downloaded the update, and when I tried to install the update it told me "this update does not apply to your computer." So, I'm guessing that update is not my problem.

Help?
 

Answer:VPN Client Connection (Vista x64) Wired Working, Wireless Not Working (no resources)

What update did you do? What is the KB number?

Also, what kind of VPN client are you using? It would be a good idea to do an "ipconfig /all" on both wired and wireless connections to see what the difference is. If you have an option for "Allow LAN Access" to split tunnel, then you might want to give that a try.

I've got a regular desktop pc and a laptop. Both are running Windows 7.

If both machines are wired, file and printer sharing works like expected. If the laptop is on the wireless, things go sour...

The machines don't see each other, I can't ping the laptop from the desktop or vice versa. Strangely enough, if I ping the desktop from the laptop by IP address the desktop will reply. At that point the desktop will see the laptop too and sharing (file, printer & media) works fine. But if the connection is idle for a couple of minutes they won't see each other anymore.

I've tried all kinds of things: disabled IPv6 on both, reconfigured file and printer sharing, disabled the firewalls on both. But none of these changes have had any effect whatsoever. I have also tried to give everything the same name (SSID, workgroup and network name on the desktop) but that had no effect either.

More info:
- Wired and wireless clients are on the same subnet.
- The router is a Linksys WRT-350N
- AP isolation is disabled
- uPnP is enabled on the router

Does anyone have any clue how to fix this?

Hello. I am pretty darned stumped. I just recently got a new router, and set it up for wireless only as everyone in my family uses that exclusively.
Well today I bought some Xbox 360 live time and wanted to connect through wires. Only it doesn't work at all. It won't even acknowledge that a wired is present in there(yes both ends are secure and this is while the wireless is working). I tried connecting to my computer to no avail.(turned the wireless off).
I have a Belkin Wireless Advance Router, F6D4230-4 v1. I'm unsure whats the problem as everytime I fixed my internet, the internet wasn't working. But this time it is but it's just the wired that's not even registering to anything.(It's the only light on the router not lit)
Also when I try to connect it says Error 815 and then a long paragraph about Logging or whatever and how I should contact my ISP, which stumps me because I'm connected!
 

Answer:Wireless working but wired isn't

also I can not access the 192.168.2.1 page unless I'm connected wirelessly. It won't show up if I turn wireless off and use only wires.

Hello!

I live in an apartment complex and my internet was out this morning, so I called tech support to come look. The guy ended up replacing the modem that's a part of their network with a Netgear one. We have a Netgear router that didn't work with it. Originally, only plugging into Ethernet ports worked, so I tinkered with it for a while.

After Googling for a while, I ended up using a Belkin MAC address in the router page (192.168.1.1) instead of the default. The MAC address I found and used is 00:30:BD:C1:99:9B. I unplugged the modem after that, and after replugging, the wireless works just fine.

Unfortunately, the wired connection no longer works. Here is the ipconfig /all from my laptop wireless:

Allso note that it's my friends network upstairs, he allso has the same router as me, and i don't think it would be worth running a line that long. the problem is i can't get to my other 2 computers, so when i hook up to my network, it will shut off the wireless and work on my network with no internet.

Hi guys,
My brother recently got a load of spyware and viruses, so it's my job to fix it.
I used a few antispyware tools, and antivirus tools, and managed to clean his system of viruses.
As of right now, his computer is virus/spyware free. He is running Windows XP Home, SP2
So, I went to reenable his wireless connection last night, and it will not connect. It tells me to enable the WZC service (Wireless Zero Configuration), but when I go into services, that service is already started.
In order to avoid fixing this, I hooked up his computer by an ethernet cable to the router, and it would not connect that way either. There is no error message with the LAN connection, and all it says is "acquiring network address."
Can someone please help me?
Thanks in advance

My wireless connection isnt working at times, some times it works perfect and i can connect the the internet no problem but other times i cant go online but i am still connected go the wireless router.

I need wireless as everything in my home runs off it and nothing is hard wired.

When i couldnt connect to the internet but was connected to the wireless router i unplugged the yellow LAN cable and plugged it into my laptop only to find i can connect fine but as soon as i connect it back up to the wireless router i get no internet. The wireless router is brand new as ive been having this problem for a while and i thought it was down to my wireless router being old. Virgin media say its not a problem on there side.

I did the usual diagnostics on the laptop and IIRC it says DNS server not responding.

Ive tried resetting both the moden and wireless router. Also done ip release and renew just to see if that would solve the problem but its still intermittently working. Im getting at a loose end here so any help is much appreciated

Ill be able to try some of your solutions tonight as im working untill 5.

Hi everyone,

I'm hoping a more technologically inclined soul can help me out with my new tech problem. Long story short is that I have a MacBook Pro w/ a functioning airport that used to connect happing to my LinsSys router version BEFW11S4 - ancient, I know. The router is connected to a cable modem. 2 days ago my internet service provider decided to throw some non-routable ISPs at me, which took a few hours to figure out and fix. Since that time my wireless router has not functioned, though the router will work with a wired connection.

I've done all the basic try it yourself fixes. Have disconnected everything multiple times. Have accessed the router and changed all the settings I can think of.

Anything other possible fixes that I don't know about or am I relegated to upgrading the router?

Thanks!
 

Answer:Wireless connection not working, wired is

Define not working... Is the SSID visible from your equipment? Can you connect via WiFi and then just no internet? Maybe a problem with the airport, have you tried to handshake with another wifi device? If the router settings are all right, and the SSID isn't broadcasting anything at all, with my limited knowledge, I'd have to call that a dead router.

Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 running Windows XP. The Wireless adapter is an Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI Adapter. The wired adapter is Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller. The router is a Netgear 54 mbps Wireless Router model WGR614 v6.

Here's my situation: Anytime I try to connect to the internet, I get stuck with "Limited or no connectivity". When I scroll over the wireless icon to see what the problem is, it seems to be stuck on acquiring network address. Every other time this has happened to me, I simply reset my modem and router and *poof* it was fixed. This time it didn't work. i tried repairing the connection, I tried using "ipconfig" in the command prompt to release and renew my IP address, still, nothing. I tried connecting my computer directly to the modem via LAN, and it had the same problems.

I'm fairly certain it isn't the modem or the router, because all the other computers in my house are accessing the internet just fine (like the one I'm using now). We don't have encryption or any other different settings on our router. It seems to be something with my computer, since I can't connect either by LAN or wireless. I checked the device manager, nothing is problematic.

He can't get online with his PS2. The desktop is wireless, just installed it today. I open up the Netgear connection on the desktop that won't connect and there is no connection, I click connect and it says the signal is excellent, but then i can't get online. I have checked the cable for the PS2 and find nothing wrong with it.

The other desktops (one wireless and one not) and laptop are fine, so I am clueless as to what is going on, I have unplugged and plugged in the cable, don't know what else to try for the wireless.

I have DSL, so I have a router from the provider, but there wasn't enough ports, I have a network printer also, so I added a second Netgear router. One port on the router from the provider has never worked. I also have a wireless access point for my laptop which is new and came wireless.

Where do I begin to figure out the problem?

Answer:wireless and wired network, not all machines working

We fixed it, by resetting the router. The desktop and PS2 work now.

Last Sunday my Wireless connection died. My broadband supplier is SKY, it's a Sky wireless router (Ralink). I can connect using the ethernet cable but the wireless connection is unavailable. Sky were unable to help, said it must be a hardware issue. I've tried manually entering the TCP/IP settings, reinstalling the router with the Sky installation CD, tried all the Windows XP Connection diagnostics, etc. "View Available Wireless Networks" fails to find any. Sky did not believe me when I told them I had only ever been able to see my SKY wireless connection, they said I ought to be picking up neighbours as well. Either side of me also have wireless connections but the router never ever saw them, only my own.

I have tried system restore to roll back to a time when the wireless network worked OK, but nothing I've tried has fixed the problem.

I should add that my Sky router has been working fine for two years or so; Sunday's crash coincided with a virus alert after viewing a web page about reupholstering a chair (!). I downloaded some free anti virus software but when I tried to register it I couldn't get online, so called Sky. They were able to get me back online with the ethernet cable. I then purchased and ran Norton Anti-virus and cleaned up the laptop generally with Ashampoo etc., and various registry cleaners. It should now be virus-free and optimised.

Hello, I am a college student, but I am home at the moment for summer break.

At college I got a network signal, but at my home I get little to no connection, but even though I technically have a "low signal" I cant connect to the internet at all. I use a network card with a big antenna comming out of the back of my computer, it is Linksys.

When I move the tower around it gets various low signals stronger and lesser than eachother. I use to use the Ethernet cord at my home, but now I don't have the ethernet connection in my Network Connections list..

All I have is "Wireless Network Connection 2, 1394 Connection, and Local Area Connection" The wireless is the one with the low signal, the 1394 connection sends and receives 0, and the Local Area Connection has sent about 1000 and received 0. I am not sure which one of these would be the ethernet connection, and I do not know how to create one.

So here is the question, Can anyone help me increase my signal? Is it because I have a network card using an Antenna? my sisters laptop in the SAME place that my desktop is in gets 5 bars of signal from the same network. Should I buy a new network card?

The other question, Can anyone help me set up a wired network connection to add it to my Network Connections list? I use to use ethernet all the time and it worked 100% I am guessing that I some how deleted the wired connection from my network list.

Thanks for reading that! and thank you for any help you can g... Read more

well im a college kid so i took my desktop home for xmas break and installed a wireless pci adapter (linksys) to go with my already set up wireless router. the wireless worked fine but when i brought my desktop back today and hooked it into the network i get a connection but it doesnt receive packets. i checked the ip and default gateway, etc. and it is using an ip off 192.168.0.X and the default gateway is 192.168.0.1 which is incorrect because i checked on my roommates computer. any ideas of how i can get rid of the wireless stuff that is making it connect with those configurations? any help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Wired connection not working after wireless is installed

You should just need to enable your existing wired card to pick up an IP via DHCP. You should also see both adapters if they are still in your machine when doing an ipconfig from the command line, if your not, you probably need to re-install the drivers for your wired NIC.

Hi, Yesterday my internet stopped working on my desktop which is connected to the router- netgear dg834gt via ethernet. I also wasn't able to connect via my laptop using my netgear powerline hd ethernet adapter hdxb101, however i have no problem connecting to the internet wirelessly (and i have checked it is to my network and not a neighbours) using my laptop. By the way when using my powerline adapter it does say connected local only to the network so it can't be a wiring problem. Everything has been turned on and off and it doesn't make a difference and all ethernet cables are securely attached at the back of the router.

We got DSL less then a week ago, and since we did I have had nothing but problems with it. Nothing is working as expected, and the tech support from my provider is horrible; pretty much all they tell me is that it must be my 3 month old laptops fault. I don't know about that...

Problem number one: Wireless. At the time of installation, I was not home to try out my wireless access, so the installer just installed the Siemens SpeedStream router/ modem and left. Everything on the computer that he hardwired via USB cable has worked just fine, but the wireless has not. I have a 3 month old Toshiba Satellite laptop, with 512 mb RAM and 100 gb harddrive, and a built in wireless card. I am able to access the wireless internet, but the connection is incessantly cutting out. I more or less live on AOL Instant Messenger, and with the internet cutting out every other minute, communication is difficult. It literally boots me every 2 minutes at least. Every so often it lets me stay on for an extended amount of time, but for no apparent reason. I know that7 2.4 ghz phones interrupt wireless networks at times, so I disconnected the one that one, but still had problems. Similarly, I turned off our airborne satellite dish, still to no avail. I then tried changing the router's channels, still with no result. I don't know what else to do...

A friend's laptop is running Windows XP. He's connected to a TP-LINK wireless router which in turn is connected to the internet through a Juniper WiMax modem.

All websites load fine with the exception of GMail and some google-related sites. Somewhere in the middle of the redirects during authentication it just spits out a blank page and sits there. This happens with FireFox, and this happens with IE. This also happens when I use a SOCKS 5 proxy (which operates on port 29000). Only GMail and the few google sites (like search results) don't work. Everything else works fine.

Network connectivity is fine, DNS is being resolved properly, I can traceroute the google webservers, ping yahoo/everything else with no problem.

This isn't a cache related issue, I have completely removed FireFox - deleted the profile folders, and re-installed. Cleared cache in IE as well - yet the problem persists.

This isn't a firewall / antivirus issue, i've disabled them all and re-enabled them without any change. There's no malware or worms/viruses or rootkits of any sort.

Now here's the crazy part. If i disconnect the laptop from the wireless router and connect it directly to the Juniper WiMAX modem, it starts working fine. Everything works, GMail and all. I connect the modem back to the wireless router, and the same problem comes up again. Other devices on this wireless router don't have any such problem (an iPhone and another laptop).

Hello, this is my first post as I am in somewhat desperate need of help here. As of this morning, I have been having a lot of problems trying to get my home network online. It has been opperating just fine for a very long time until today.

I have 4 different computers running at home, 2 of them running Windows XP home, 1 running Windows Vista Ultimate, and a Macbook pro running both Windows Vista Ult. and OS 10.4. Only one of these computers is able to connect to the internet which is the macbook (it connects in both Vista and OS X) and only connects through a wired connection directly into the modem. Both of the desktop's cannot connect, through either the router or directly into the modem. I am ignoring the laptop with windows altogether because it seems unecessary to have a 4th computer to test in this case.

The only way that I can get any internet access is by plugging my macbook directly into my modem. No other computer will work this way nor will the router.

I have tried many different things over the past few hours trying to get things back online with no success. Here is what I have done.

Unplugged the router and modem for set amounts of time to reboot both. I have also disabled and re-enabled my network cards on both PC's that are not getting internet.

Answer:Solved: Wireless & wired connections no longer working

Did you power cycle the modem whenever you changed the attached device? If not, that's the first thing to try. Next, try the following procedure.

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect a computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Connect a second computer to another of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.
Boot the second computer.

When the computers are completely booted, let's see this for each one.

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

So here's the deal. I've successfully set up a wireless network here at the house. My computer is hardwired to the connection, and my laptop works flawlessly with it. Router is a D-link DIR-655. Broadband is Roadrunner cable.

Then there's my mother's pc. We bought her a D-link DWA-130 wireless adapter, which seems to be working fine. Problem is, she will start browsing in IE, and after a little while it just stops reaching the servers. When she tells me it's not connecting, I check and the wireless connection is still excellent. Firefox won't connect at all for some reason. Rebooting seems to get things working again in IE, but after 20-30 minutes max, it stops.

Answer:Wired and Wireless Network Problems

Ok, I've seen this before with the DNS showing a valid DNS IP but also a default gateway of 192.168.0.1 which usually indicates there is another router or a modem/router and then your access point.

Can you confirm if this is true or not?

If there is only one router then you need to define 2 DNS IP addresses in your routers set up page, as it appears now you seem to have one DNS server typed into your IPv4 properties?

Answer:Problems with 2 routers - wireless/wired

Ensure that your settings are correct on both ends. On the client end, ensure that you have installed the adapter and its drivers properly, and that the OS recognizes it. At the access point, ensure that you have enabled encryption, and use the same setting back at the client. May I ask why you are using a wireless and a wired router. Ditch the wired router, its onlymaking this more complicated than it needs to be. Here are some resources, and please use 128 bit encryption:

1 Vista PC, wired & wireless
1 Vista Laptop, wired & wireless
1 Xbox 360, wireless

Am experiencing the following....

Vista PC will connect to the router (local and internet) wired for a short time, but after a while or when I restart it drops out and says Local connection only. At this point vista seems to think I am at least on the network, however I cannot access any router settings or any other items on the network.

I can do a factory reset of the router, and re-input my ISP settings, it will then allow me to connect wired again and give me access to the router settings etc, but only until next time I turn off.

I get similar problems when using wireless to connect or when using the Vista Laptop. XP PC however, stays connected fine. Allows me to access router settings (192.168.0.1) at any time.

Have been doing a bit of research and tried the following:
-turned off IPv6 on using the tick box in network connections>properties
-turning off my firewall
-updating router firmware
-updating both network adapter drivers
-using alternative network adapter drivers (vista seems to think it knows best but have tried both the drivers it uses automatically and the original manufacturer drivers)
-losing my temper and leaving it for a few hours!

Answer:Connection Problems on Wired & Wireless Connections...

After updating router firmware it is good practice, and sometimes necessary to reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

Many Vista networking problems are driver related so download and install the latest available driver for each of your network adapters.

This is my preferred order for finding drivers:

1. PC manufacturer's web site, [I expect this will suffice for the laptop]
2. Motherboard manufacturer's web site,
3. Device manufacturer's web site, [I do not expect you'll have to go below this for the desktop]
4. A "drivers" site, such as DriverGuide,
5. Anywhere you can find one that might work,
6. Let Device Manager try to find one.
7. Use Windows Update.

I have the following setup:

Actiontec Q1000 modem from Qwest setup as wireless access point
D-Link DIR-615 router setup as a wireless access point without the DHCP server and plugged in directly to the Q1000

I have a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5864 with an Intel 3945ABG wifi card with the latest drivers from Intel. When I'm connected wirelessly to the Q1000 I can't see any of the other wired devices but can see other wireless devices. If I connect wired to the Q1000 I can see all devices. However, if I connect to the DIR-615 wirelessly, I can see everything fine as well. I'm even getting the same DHCP lease from both wireless access points.

I have network discovery on, password protected file sharing off, firewall off and unneeded network services turned off (IPv6, etc).

When I can't see the wired devices this includes ping, http, ssh and samba.

Answer:Wireless/Wired problems with internal network

Dual router set ups aren't recommended unless you like inconsistant networks that are plagued with problems.

The way you have this set up now will only cause you problems. Go with a standard modem, not a combo unit, then use your same router and turn back on all networking services including IPv6.

The Argument against Disabling IPv6
It is unfortunate that some organizations disable IPv6 on their computers running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, where it is installed and enabled by default. Many disable IPv6-based on the assumption that they are not running any applications or services that use it. Others might disable it because of a misperception that having both IPv4 and IPv6 enabled effectively doubles their DNS and Web traffic. This is not true.
From Microsoft's perspective, IPv6 is a mandatory part of the Windows operating system and it is enabled and included in standard Windows service and application testing during the operating system development process. Because Windows was designed specifically with IPv6 present, Microsoft does not perform any testing to determine the effects of disabling IPv6. If IPv6 is disabled on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, or later versions, some components will not function. Moreover, applications that you might not think are using IPv6—such as Remote Assistance, HomeGroup, DirectAccess, and Windows Mail—could be.
Therefore, Microsoft recommends that you leave IPv6 enabled, even if you do not have an IPv6-enabl... Read more

I'm trying to cheaply setup one of my computers as an access point. I currently have 3 computers on a wired network all running with WinXP. I'm wanting to turn one of my computers into an access point so I can use a handheld device to access the internet. I went and bought an airlink awll4030 wireless USB adapter hoping that would work. When I got home and read the manual it basically said that it just links something to an existing wireless network and that was it. I checked the manual online and that one said you could put it in ad-hoc mode, which I'm assuming would make it into an access point (I'm really not sure.)

So I tried it out on two of my computers, and every time I tried to enable ICS on the "host" computer it kept telling me:
"Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) canot be enable due to an IP address conflict on the network. ICS requires the host be configured to use 192.168.0.1. Please ensure that no other client on the network is configured to use 192.168.0.1."

and

"Internet Connection Sharing cannot be enable. A LAN connection is already configured with the IP address that is required for automatic IP addressing."

When I emailed the company they told me to buy their brand access point instead. If I can manage it I'd really rather not because it is twice the price of the USB adapter I bought. The only other advice I can find is to get a wireless router, but then wouldn't I have to buy new wir... Read more

Answer:Wired/Wireless ICS networking problems..going crazy

That is possible that your Router or modem (who is your ISP) uses 192.168.0.1 for the LAN. Change the router or modem to 192.168.1.1 for your LAN settings, and you should be okay.

First timer, so help me along gently....hahahha. Here's how it goes: I have 3 home computers running on cable with router.hub. I wanted to add a WIRELESS ROUTER to this setup, so I can run the laptop all over the house. No need to wireless the other computers, here's the sad story...loooking for some info on how to get it to connect to internet. All computers are working except the laptop..lights blink,etc...appears to be running ok, just won't connnect. Hope I didn't miss any steps..here's what I did:

Cable modem connected to LINKSYS BEFSR-41 ROUTER/HUB, took one of the open ports to the UPLINK port of LINKSYS EZXS55W 5 PORT SWITCH ( I want to add other computers later), then I took port 1 to the internet plug on a LINKSYS WIRELESS G WRT54GS. I have a DLINK AIRPLUS DWL-G630 card in my laptop. It shows the wireless connection, when I right click on the task bar it gives INTERNET CONNECTION and also LAN/HIGH SPEED CONNECTION.

the most frequent one is :






ERR_CONNECTION_FAILED



When this one appears, google searches still works (from the address bar) but i can't open any websites, including google.com or youtube.com

then there is :

This one happens with certain websites, like speedtest.net, actually it is happening right now while am righting this post and google and eightForums and other websites works perfectly

Also sometimes the internet in the browser is completely down, nothing works while skype & dropbox and steam are still working, and sometimes nothing works.

Like i said this happens with wireless and wired network.

I am sure that my internet and my router are fine since i tested it with 5 devices (win7 laptop, ubuntu laptop, macbook, Android smarthone and an iPhone)

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

I work as a video editor and where I work we have a wired network sharing video between the different computers at 1gbps. This is on a static IP. I also want to use the internet while I am working by connecting to our wireless internet with a wireless adapter via DHCP.

My problem is if the video network is running my wireless internet constantly goes down every 2 minutes. I have found an interesting way to get it to work again is to switch http1.1 and http1.1 through proxy connections on and off until it comes back. But after a year of doing this every 2 minutes I AM GETTING REALLY TIRED OF IT.

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

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

I am reasonably intelligent and computer literate but no expert, any help would be greatly appreciated, many thanks

Answer:T60 wont pick up a valid ip address, Driver seems ok, wireless is working fine

Hi Damien. I have a couple of questions here for you: 1) When you plug in the ethernet cable, are you seeing both the green and amber lights flashing? Hopefully there isn't a problem with the internal pins on your NIC or a problem with the router configuraton or the cable itself. 2) Also, go to the shell prompt (Start->Run->CMD->Enter) and type the follwing for me: ping 127.0.0.1 Let me know if you see 4 replies with 0% loss Next, type the following at the shell prompt: ipconfig Type the results of the statics shown. Need to see the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway showing. I'm checking to see if there are any configuring issues first. Of course you can also use the release and renew commands and flush the DNS if needed. Possible resetting Winsock too might help? If everything appears normal and problems still persist, you want want to consider getting the systemboard replaced. Systembords can act funny at times (especially with the NIC being integrated). This would fix the problem, yes... but just make certain there are not configuring issues first.  Let me know if this helps you out any. Best,Mark

I've read the many posts about wired/wireless problems involving Windows 7 and Realtek PCIe NICs.

Here's what worked for me.

I have an HP TouchSmart notebook with Windows 7 Premium connected to a Belkin Router (through a switch). Wireless worked fine, but I wanted a cable connection (twice the speed.) I kept getting the endless "Identifying..." message, followed by No Internet Access. Went through all the driver tips, Bonjour removal, regedits, static IP addresses...spent about a week. It obsessed me.

Then I happened to open the DHCP client list on the router page and noticed the HP appeared TWICE.

With two different MAC addresses!

Eureka! That was it. I'm using MAC address filtering on the router, and the wireless port has a different MAC address than the wired port. I had entered the address only for the wireless port (assuming it represented the entire machine.) Once I entered the MAC address for the wired port, both (obviously) worked.

I noticed a lot of people trying many exotic things to fix the problem -- it might be nothing more exotic than this. Moral: beware your computer's secret identity.

I'm new to the forum. =)

As the title says, I'm having problems networking my laptop (using wireless) and my wired desktops.
All are on the same workgroup, and have unique computer names.
My wired desktops can see each other.
My laptop, using the wireless connection, is unable to communicate with either desktop. I can't ping the desktops by name from my laptop or their ip addresses.
I have a DSL connection, and all computers connect through the same connection.
All computers are running on XP by the way, and all have no problems connecting to the internet.
The wired desktop computers are connected to a hub. My wireless router (linksys wrt54G I think it's called) is also connected to the hub by a cat5 cable (the cable is plugged into one of the ports on the hub, and connects to the "internet" port on the router). My wireless network is using WPA-PSK (I think it's called) with TKIP.
I have tried to ditch the hub altogether by connecting everything to my router, because I thought maybe having the hub there was causing my troubles.
However, connecting everything to the router only provided a temporary solution. First, all computers could be seen from all three computers in 'view workgroup computers' for a VERY short period (like 5 minutes) - then, one of my desktops & my laptop were unable to communicate. Pinging did not work, even. Second, my wireless connection stopped working after a very short period (my laptop could not rec... Read more

Answer:problems networking wireless laptop and two wired desktops

So, do I understand this correctly: your DSL modem is connected to a hub, and to the hub you have 2 computers and the WAN (Internet) port of a wireless router? And you get 3 public IP addresses from your ISP?

If that's right, I guess it would work if you just used the router as a switch and wireless access point by disabling its Dhcp server and connecting the hub to a router LAN port (using a cross-over cable unless either port is auto-sensing). I still don't understand PPP, so if there's anything you are setting in your wired PCs for that, you'll have to do the same sort of thing for the wireless.

Are you paying extra for multiple IPs?

Why not just lose the hub and connect the modem directly to the router and all PCs to that?

The title might be a little misleading. I connected a new HP multi-function printer to my wireless router via a wired connection. I followed the instructions and the printer is working fine. The problem is a very short time later my phone, laptop and Wii were disconnected from the wireless network and will not reconnect. Wii support says that a connection cannot be established because the router will not assign an IP address to it.Prior to connecting the printer, I've never had any problems connecting via a wireless connection with as many devices as I could possibly connect to it (phones, laptops, iPods, etc). There's also been a desktop connected to the router via wire prior to and after the printer was connected.
Any suggestions?

I have a medium-sized network spread across several rooms that I am having some issues with. The main Gateway to the internet is a Linksys BEFW11S version 4. It is wired to Computer 4, Computer 3(wireless), a Netgear EN104 4-port hub, and the cable modem. The EN104 is wired to Computer 1, Computer 2, a Netgear 5-port switch, and uplinked to the BEFW11S. The 5-port switch is connected to a Playstation 2, X-Box, Computer 5, a Konica-Minolta network printer, and uplinked to the EN104. Still with me? ;P

Anyhow, what I am having difficulty with is the other end of the network. Specifically, this other portion consists of another X-box and two other computers. The problem is they are all positioned so as to make anything but wireless connection to the rest of the network impossible. I am trying to accomplish this without spending any additional money if it is possible. The remaining networking hardware that I have to spare is another EN104 and a Linksys WET11. I was wondering what the best way to make this happen would be? I tried uplinking the 2nd EN104 to the WET11 and running the three thru the EN104 but had no luck. The BEFW11S has DHCP enabled if that matters, and all connections are set to have IP addys assigned to them dynamically. Any thoughts or suggestions how to get this thing up and running would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Ok.. bare with me.. this will be long and might make your head hurt.

The situation: My laptop has two network cards, they are both in use. My wired nic is connected
to my office, my wireless is connected to my personal wifi connection. I'm ccna/mcse certified and
know a bit about these things. In theory using two nics shouldn't create so many problems, the routing
table should sort itself out using metrics. In reality its a bit more complicated, and the more I
test the more it seems there must be other variables involved. I wish there was an app to assist with
this, manually messing with my routing table is getting annoying. Anyways, here is what happens when
I turn both cards on:

I purchased this Dell Studio 15 notebook in August of 2009, and have never been able to back up over the WiFi link. It backs up fine on wired Ethernet, however. I've recently decided to keep my files on a Netgear ReadyNAS duo, so that I can access them from multiple computers and keep them off the notebook, reasoning that at least the files will be protected even if I don't have recent backups of the entire system.

If I open a file over the WiFi, either by double-clicking, or using an application's File-Open command, nothing happens for about 1.5 to 2 minutes, and then the file opens fine. I've used both Resource Monitor and Process Monitor to verify that nothing is happening on the network adapter during that long delay, (that I can find, at least), and a sudden burst of network activity occurs when the file actually opens.

Hello,

I've had a problem for a few weeks now. The internet connection on the computer the router's wired to is working as intended, however the wireless connection is just a lot worse. On other devices, instead of 50-60 Mbps, the speed is about 1-3 Mbps (according to an internet speedtest) with WiFi connection randomly stopping for a few seconds, except for my PC I use almost all the time, where it's even worse. It's 0.1 to 0.7 Mbps (!).

The wireless connection was already not so good (~5 Mbps), but it only got this severe a few weeks ago. I didn't place any obstacles that would block the router.

My router's model is TP-Link TL-WR340GD (V4).

What can I do?

Hey,

I've been doing some online gaming (world of warcraft), and I kept getting these Error#131 issues. This would cause the game files to become corrupted and then I would have to repair, or reinstall. The WoW tech site says that chronic error #131 messages are either a Hard drive, Ram, or Motherboard issue.

Running the Windows Vista memory diagnostic tool has turned up some odd results, the initial test with a 1gb stick in slot #1 and a 1gb stick in slot #2 came back with errors. I then removed the ram from slot 2 and ran the test on slot 1 with 1 stick of ram.... no errors. I did the same with the other stick in slot 1.....no errors. this lead me to believe that it was slot#2 giving me the issue so I moved the ram from slot 2 to slot 3, thus having 1gb of ram in slot 1 and 1gb of ram in slot 3. After a little while......error#131 appeared.

So I then tested both sticks in slots 1 and 3 together and came back with ram errors, I then tested both sticks in slot #1, and then again in slot #2 and both tests came back fine. Any ideas on what this issue could be? I know both sticks are the same brand, speed, totally identical.

Hi,

So i bought myself a new Netgear Rangemax Next Wireless-N USB 2.0 adapter WN111

Now, it will locate the network and connect to it, but it says on a local level only on IPv4. I'm on O2 broadband so the modem/router is their standard base unit, which has always worked okay in the past with other wireless devices.
