Broadcom 4352 AC card, low wireless signal.

Question: Broadcom 4352 AC card, low wireless signal.

Yooooo! I have a Lenovo Y510p with modified BIOS so I could replace the crappy Intel wireless card that came with it (Intel Centrino N2230) for an Azurewave - Broadcom 4352. The experience has been good so far, the only problem I'm having is the low wireless signal with the card. I have other laptops that have higher range and strengths on the same place with older cards.

I've tried verifying (and even swapping) the cables and noted no difference. I asked on another forum and they told me that it could be that the card is not receiving enough power, but I have yet to find a settings in the BIOS or in Windows that dwindles its performance. I have recently updated the driver from Lenovo's website and it didn't improve a bit.

Any suggestions to improve the wireless signal? Thanks.

Don't have a answer for this one but do you know if the Broadcom is better than the Intel 7260AC?

Can anyone suggest anything for the Wireless adapter tripping out after upgrading Win 8 to windows 8.1? Computer used to work fine on Win 8. Now I cant download large files or watch TV or you Tube or live Football 30 feet away from the Router. Yet it worked good on Windows 8. Anyone having similar problems? Is it possible to return to Windows 8? I did not make a Restore USB at Windows 8 but did a Restore USB for Win 8.1.

Answer:BROADCOM 4352 wireless adapter trips out

The Broadcom drivers aren't installing the right one but if you can visit the Windows Update Center using a wired connection there is a new driver for Broadcom that works.

Lenovo and Dell both have drivers for the 4352 as well.

Hi, I am having exactly the same problem.I recently bought a laptop HP Pavilion 15, product number J1Z18EA#ABZ, running Windows 8.1 64 bit with a Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 bgn WiFi adapter. My modem is barely 3 feet away and the signal strength is 1 bar. My mobile phone (Nexus 5), the iPad and my other laptop (an old HP running Windows 7) are showing full strength (or at least 4 out of 5 bars). All the drivers are up to date and nothing changed. How can we fix this? regardsfilippo

First, the questions: every time my girlfriend boots her Gateway laptop, she successfully connects to the wireless network for the dorm. However, she must release/renew to get any connectivity. The card is a Broadcom 8011.b/g (also has bluetooth... I have been out of the tech loop for a while now and know little enough about laptops to have no clue what the model number or even that company's track record is as far as compatibility and reliability). I have played around with the standard settings to try and fix this with no avail. Also, the laptop take a million years to boot and shut down, and while I am no expert, I have toyed with the common things that might cause this... I know that a tech guy got to the laptop before I did and replaced the OS and did a bunch of tweaks and didn't document it or anything so I have no idea what state her laptop is actually in.

And a bit of mudslinging... I would encourage you all to avoid purchasing your laptops (or desktops for that matter) from Gateway or Best Buy. Gateway does not support your computer in the event that you change operating systems or alter the computer in any way. Also be aware that Gateway does not cover a laptop with their name on it purchased from Best Buy. You actually must call a seperate number that leads to an eMachines representative, waiting a good 30 minutes each time you must push a new automated answering service number. Really poor business.
 

Answer:Broadcom wireless card

The more recent broadcom mini PCI cards in laptops, several Gateways, Dells, Compaq/HP, really are not that reliable.

Just one example I've run into lately, my bro'in'law's D820 will connect to my Linksys WRT54GS but not his dad's US Robotics AP. It will only connect to about half of the AP's in various hotels.
Drivers have been changed, etc, but I haven't done that much with it myself. He is a pretty good tech in his own right.

Combine that with several of my customers with the same issue and a Broadcom mini PCI ABG card... its faster and cheaper for my customers just to buy an Intel 2915ABG and pop it in there.

I have a new Acer laptop with a Broadcom network adapter and can connect to a 802.11b wireless router but I couldn't connect to the router at the village library which I think has 802.11g. How do I know for sure how to set my Broadcom network adapter so it can connect to an 802.11g signal. What settings should I look for. I checked my computer's device manager but couldn't get a model number for the Broadcom adapter. I have windows vista home premium 32bit on my Acer Extensa 5420-5038.
 

Answer:What settings for my Broadcom wireless card

Getting the right and exact model number for the Broadcom is really key.

Try Everest Home Edition to get the specs.
Download from here and run it
- Click Reports->Report Wizard
- Get a Summary report in plain text
- You can attach the report or just copy / paste the info on your network adapter right into your post as that alone won't be alot of text

btw... most adapters are set for b&g (tho of course won't know for sure till the model number) tho have you check with the library if there are any other connection criteria?

Hello. Well, a couple weeks ago my wireless started acting buggy. It wouldn't work, but if I restarted my laptop it would usually start again. Now it's not working at all. I've tried reinstalling the drivers with the disc that came with my computer and downloading the drivers from the dell website. The device does show up in my device manager. I've tried deleting it, so it reinstalls, didn't work. It is enabled in BIOS. I have tried the little wireless switch and the hotkey.

I have the same computer and my wifi card is the dell 1390. the broadcom is the wired device. could you go into device manager (type device manager in search) and see if there is an "unknown" device? that might be your wifi.

Hello.

A few months ago I bought an Acer Aspire One 722 netbook. On the first run I installed Windows 7 (since it had Linpus Linux with no GUI pre-installed) and I installed all the drivers. After some time I decided to use Xubuntu 12.10 and I was happy with it. It automatically installed the proprietary driver for the wi-fi card and all was good.

The trouble came when Ubuntu 13.04 got released and I decided to look for another distro since the one I was using was out of date and not as fast as I had wished anyway. I've installed Manjaro Linux and everything worked nicely until one time I went downstairs for a moment and came back to see my screen blanked out (default power settings), which was normal, and... my wi-fi led turned off. The internet still worked but now the led wouldn't light up no matter what. I figured that it must have burned out or something so I ignored the problem.

I realized the problem was more serious when I decided to try Lubuntu. When the installer asked me to connect to a network, at first it connected properly and then, when I wanted to continue the installation, it probably downloaded and installed the proprietary driver, because the led switched on but the installer tried to connect to my network over and over again unsuccessfully.

To get a better idea of what's going on I installed Xubuntu 12.10 again (because the wi-fi card worked fine on it before) and checked the wi-fi driver selection in software sources>additional drive... Read more

hi,

many things are free in Linux but some hardware vendors don't allow free integration of their drivers in Linux, in our case Broadcom and its network adapter drivers.

in fact it is not so complicated we have to remove the proprietary driver and replace it by another.

this small tutorial assumes you use a Ubuntu-based distro.
issue:

you went to Driver Manager and the needed driver (generally nominated as "non-free") is not activated and you can't activate it.

Requirements

You need have internet via a wired connection (it means you connect to your modem via a cable)

(i will try to find a way to do this procedure without any connection)

Preparation:

open Terminal and type:
Code:
sudo lshw -class network
it will shows you the model of your network card.

Step 1

open Terminal and type:

1-

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source
2- Reboot

Your Wifi should be now detected

note: as you see , since we type "apt-update" we need an active internet connection , so the wired connection requirement.

step 2

since we removed the faulty driver we will update the system

1- Open Terminal and type
Code:
apt-get updates
then
Code:
apt-get dist-upgrade
2- reboot

it may take some time.

Final note:

depending your system/distro , the Driver Manager may states that the wifi driver is not enabled, even though it is, and is working..

Hi All,

I'm working on a clients notebook [HP presario R3205ap with XP pro SP3] that has an issue with the broadcom wireless network card... the notebook has the network card showing a yellow exclamation mark in device manager and the error message "the driver is missing or corrupt, please reinstall driver" When uninstalling driver, using the "find new hardware" option in control panel, windows gets to the "search for driver" section in the installation wizard and then freezes up the whole system, with a reboot holding down the power button to restart the only solution. I've tried downloading the latest driver from HP, uninstalling the driver in device manager and attempting to install the new driver, but again the system freezes when the device manager refreshes itself when searching for the driver.
Can anyone help??

Answer:Broadcom wireless network card freezing system

You might try disabling the device, deleting the driver files yourself, and rebooting.

Then download the new drivers, install them, reboot and then re-enable the device so plug and play will detect them.

I am getting an 1802 error message on boot when I install the Broadcom Mini-PCI wireless card. I know it has something to do with some code IBM put into the BIOS or CMOS to check the cards for manufacturer or something like that. Is there anyway around this message or do I have to try and find an IBM mini-PCI wireless card for this machine?













Solved!

Answer:1802 Error Message on installation of Broadcom Mini-PCI Wireless Card

You have two choices:a) Buy a genuine cardb) Apply the so-called "no-1802" BIOS hack for the machine to accept your Broadcom card.If you choose the second solution, just Google for "no-1802" and you'll find all you need to get this done. However, be advised that you're messing with BIOS and that motherboard failures have been reported as a result of this procedure, although in small number of cases.BTW, what ThinkPad are we discussing here? On some machines the "no-1802" procedure doesn't work...Good luck.Message Edited by ajkula66 on 06-23-2008 08:55 PM

I randomly pick the above. It has 2 antenna. Is this card gives a better signal than a motherboard that has an embedded Wifi module?

because the situation I was at today is, these folks has a toshiba all in 1, which comes with an embedded wifi module in that All in 1. The wireless router/Cable modem is at the basement, and some times they lost signal.

So I'm thinking of something like Linksys WRT1900AC that has 4 antenna, and perhaps source out a signal booster. But if that does not work, it would be time to get a real PC that c/w PCI wireless card.

Do you guys think there is a sizeable gain on signal strength on these PCI wireless card vs. embedded Wifi module on motherboard?
 

Answer:Does PCI wireless card has better signal than embedded wireless module inside PC

I would try power over Ethernet. But if you must use wifi the all in one probably has its antenna around the screen. I would look at range entenders. They are getting cheap where they just act as an access point and will allow you to extend their coverage

When I'm on the 2nd story of my house with my laptop apparently we get some signal from a neighbors linksys router.. and my connection will drop.

I used to have this happen and the wireless icon would show itself not connected (with an x) and then trying to aquire network address to the other network.

It doesn't do this anymore, but when I check the wireless networks in range when I have this problem, the linksys always shows up with one bar. If I disconnect from my link and reconnect (Dlink) everything works fine.

I don't have the linksys in my preferred networks, and I even added it at one point to uncheck the 'connect when this network is within range' box. Is there anyway to control my wireless card so that it only attempts to connect to my d-link or nothing? Kinda like Bluetooth can see all other wireless networks but you tell it which to link to and that's that.

I appreciate any help
 

Answer:Can I lock my wireless card to a specific signal?

Windows XP? Are you using the Windows Wireless Zero-Config tool to configure your wireless device?

You might try changing your SSID to something completely different and maybe changing the channel that it is broadcasting on. Everyone in your neighborhood is more than likely on channel 6 so I would recommend switching to either 1 or 11 to cut down on interference.

Your computer should only try to connect to a network if it is setup to connect to it. Also, if using windows zero config it should process the list of prefered networks in order. So, if you have "linksys" listed about yours then it will try to connect to that one first.

So recently i found the USB dongle i used to use frequently just stopped working, frequently disconnecting, and when it does connect - it only does for a very small amount of time.

Thinking it was perhaps the dongle and not a hardware problem - i bought another - and still the same result.

Right now i'm positioned directly below the WPA router (SKY), so in other words i'm one floor below - which isn't that far considering other laptops around the house with wireless adapters can still get a fantastic signal 2 floors down.

So i thought that perhaps dongles are just not powerful enough - and so i bought a PCI wireless card from amazon, one that was very well reviewed, however when i bought it and set it up, i got the same problems as the USB dongles - it works very rarely, and if it does the signal is terrible and most of the time it remains unconnected to the router.

Any ideas on this one? - i've run Netstumbler and have had no results whatsoever - the signal has deteriorated so much now that i can't even get onto the internet from my computer. I'm actually considering drilling a hole in the roof and simply running an ethernet cable through it and just connecting it to the connection the router's connected too. I guess that'll be a last resort.

Incredibly confused and need help - obviously its not a usb problem as i've used a PCI card to the job, but still no dice.

Thanks for reading and hope you can help!

Hello
 
 
 
I bought this new HP laptop approx. 6 weeks ago with Windows 8 pre-installed which gave me problems from day 1. It also had Norton Internet Security pre-installed. From the start it had loads of pop ups and malware, I don't know where they came from as I don't visit strange sites plus it had Norton running. After removing Norton, installing Kaspersky Internet Security, running Anti-MalwareBytes and cleaning up the infections things seemed to get back to normal.
 
Lately I started getting minidump errors with a blue screen when I switch on the laptop in the morning, and a persistent loss of signal from the wireless card.
 
I ran Blue Screen View and got details about DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE, see attached files.

Good Afternoon, We've recently discovered an issue at a high school that we provide support for Wi-Fi. At first glance, it appeared the Lenovo Thinkpad 11e - 20ED - Windows 10 Creator's Update (1703) - Broadcom 802.11ac [7.35.295.2 driver (7-20-2015)] was having a drastic sticky client issue where they would associate and stick to the worst AP in the build - even with an AP a few feet away from them. Upon further glance, noticed they were choosing the worst APs they had never previously associated to (ruled out sticky client). Upon further inspection after running "netsh wlan show interface" and using a Wi-Fi Diagnostics Tool - discovered the apparent logic for why this model of Thinkpad was connecting to the worst access points in the building.The behavior being seen is that ANY and specifically (regardless of our infastructure or neighbors) 5GHZ SSID that is heard at -90 or lower - is given a Signal Quality of 100% with full bars. I have a spreadsheet of my testing in various locations of this behavior as well. I mentioned this issue with Microsoft TAC if this would be a driver issue or OS issue - or combination of both - and they seemed to think this was an issue with the driver.

My Winbook U100 will not connect to my wireless network even though I just returned from a trip where it connected to other networks with no extra effort on my part. When I left two weeks ago, it connect fine. The card is an 802.11bgn 1T2R Mini Card. I am running Windows XP Home and have 2GB ram and 160 GB hard drive. The card keeps trying to connect my network stating 54Mps and Excellent signal strength; however, the View Available Wireless Networks does not show any networks in range. The netbook is sitting within three feet of the modem and router. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this madding situation?

I really hope someone can help me with this. I have three T60p's, all of which have the same problem. When I connect to the internet using the Intel 3945abg card, the signal level varies. One minute it is excellent (since I'm only 10 feet from the router), and then the next it drops down to low or even cuts out. I tried a couple things, none of which have helped: 1. Removed Access Connections and using only windows to connect.2. Downloaded the latest driver from Intel. Also, when the signal is dropping low, if I cycle the power on the wifi card, it brings it back up to excellent - at least for a little while. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Answer:T60p has inconsistent wifi signal level - 3945abg wireless card

I forgot to mention that I purchased a new cable modem and router, but that didn't help either.

This is my first time posting.

I just bought an ATI Radeon R4350 graphics card. I followed the (brief) installation instructions, but received "No signal" on two separate monitors, both of which had no problems previously. After reading some forums, I though I should disable the onboard graphics first, so I backtracked by removing the new graphics card and returning my monitors to their original ports. However, after returning to my original setup, I still got "No signal". I've already reset the BIOS, but still no results.
 

Answer:No signal after installing new graphics card, no signal after removing new card

Please indicate your computer specs.
Are you sure that your video card is compatible with the motherboard ?

Hello,

I am having a problem which is bugging the bejeezus out of me, and excuse me if this has already been discussed elsewhere (tried to search but didn't find anything relevant).

I have a Dell Latitude D420 with a Dell Wireless 1390 Minicard. The Dell also has its own utility that manages the wireless connection in place of Windows XP.

I currently live in Italy (the computer was purchased in the USA) and am trying to connect to a specific wireless router provided by Fastweb. Fastweb is an Italian ISP that provides its own proprietary router (a Telsey) to use.

Even though I am able to connect to it by wired ethernet, and any other computer/wi-fi enabled device is also able to connect to it wirelessly, my computer just does not pick up the wireless signal from the router.

The strange thing is that when I open the Dell utility and go to the "Site Monitor" tab, the very same router's wireless signal is picked up without fail as a 54 speed at full signal strength.

But when I click on the first tab, the "Wireless Networks" tab and click on "add a network" then it shows a list of available networks-- and the Fastweb router is often not on there! Sometimes it does show up and when I click on it and try to connect, sometimes the signal disappears sometimes it has limited or no connectivity, but never anything consistently close to a stable connection.

When I tried to let Windows manage my wireless connection, the same problem pres... Read more

Answer:Dell 1390 WLAN Mini-Card unable to recognize specific wireless signal

With the problem being intermittent I doubt that this is the problem, but will plunge ahead anyhow.

I think in Italy the wireless channels are 1-13. If your wireless adapter has a North American driver it should be detecting/using only channels 1-11. If the router in question is using a channel greater than 11 I suggest that you uninstall the wireless adapter and its utility and start over. Make sure you specify the correct region (I think "Europe").

Hi, I am having a problem with my dell laptop & getting a wireless signal. I have cable internet. Cable modem (arris) is hooked up to my desktop & I have a Netgear wireless modem to get the signal to my laptop. I was starting to get bumped off my wireless signal for quite a few weeks, now I can't seem to get any signal. When I go & try & repair connection it can't get an IP address anymore. I tried restarting the modems to no avail. When I click on my signal it's "waiting for network" for quite some time then stops. It then says next to the signal "Not Connected", but if you click on the signal it asks you to disconnect. It thinks I'm connected somehow. The little icon at the bottom left corner has an X through it & when it was waiting for the network or trying to connect it still has an X through it. I use this wirelesss signal with my tivo & another laptop with no problems. So, I believe it's something with the laptop itself. Any help would be much appreciated. I hope this all makes sense.

Thanks a bunch:wave

Hi there, I have just built my first custom pc, and so far everything has gone just fine. i have a wireless adapter card with all the drivers installed, however i only get one to two bars and a connection that constantly disconnects. The deal is that i am sharing my internet connection from my neighbour's wireless router in her house. She is absolutely fine with this, and its been the norm for a while now with my laptop being able to use the wireless almost every where in mu place. Anyway my new build is in the furthest corner of my house away from my neighbour, so i guess the only issue is that the signal is too weak to reach. So im guessing that i need a wireless booster or extended, or something to bump up the signal. But i dont have access to my neighbours wireless router... Is this possible? Any suggestions or idea's would be greatly appreciated. I Oh btw in my room, which is right next to my neighbours i get full signal on my laptop. However the room with the new pc in it is only one room away with just a wall separating them. Just thought i should add that. Thank you in advance.

We have a nice signal from the router until about the same time each day. Only cable tv modem is available. Evidently the country neighbors do lots of internet during the afternoon.

Is there a way to boost the signal coming down the cable line ? The cable tv company has installed new cables from the pole into the house. We have installed all new cables in the house.

All of the boosters I've seen are for after the wireless signal gets to the cable modem.

Thanks !

Answer:wireless signal boost to help low signal from cable tv ?

This is a known issue with cable connections. When its not heavily used the signal, speeds can be good, but when it is used heavily things can deteriorate.

However, how do you know that the cable signal is changing? Unless someone from the cable company has measured the cable signal you don't know that is what is causing the problems. I don't think the signal level on the cable side will affect the wi-fi signal level on that side. They are two separate functions. If your wi-fi signal is deteriorating it has to be some other interference.

Going back to the cable signal level, I had a change every day around 1PM and the cable modem would lose sync. It turned out to be a bad underground cable between the main cable distribution amp and an intermediate amp in our neighborhood (every thing is under ground). It took a special crew to find and fix this, the tech that came to the house knew "nothing". I had to keep calling everyday when it went bad and after the problem went "chronic" then they got the cable crew on it.

I am a new user and not a particularly technically competent one. I hope this is the right forum for this question.

I am using a Dell Latitude D430 with Vista Business. For Broadband connections it has a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx controller. I am on the road in a hotel which has an ethernet broadband connection in my room. I am connecting to the internet through this ethernet connection. However, every time that I do something, e.g. go to a new URL, a box pops up labelled "Connect Broadband Connection" which asks for a user name and password and tries to dial a connection. I have to close it because it appears to stall the ethernet connection while it waits to dial. I don't understand why it doesn't recognize the ethernet connection. I can't find a way to disable it without disabling the card and then my ethernet connection doesn't work. Is there something I can do?? Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

Hi guys, my friend just got a new Acer 3023 laptop with a built in broadcom wireless 802.11g card. I've installed the included drivers and utility and ensured the wireless card is active but it won't pick up my wireless network. All the computers on my network use netgear cards. I put the laptop right next to the router and it still can't see the network. Usually there are 2 or 3 wireless networks availible in my house but the laptop can't see any of them, the network is 'not connected' in network connections. I'm not sure what to do next?

Answer:Can I use Broadcom 440x10/100 IC for wireless

The broadcom is a non-wireless network adapter - it will only connect using a cable. If your old modem worked with the card then your new one will, you just need to set it up in the first place - follow the instructions in the manual, if you don't have them then they should be available on the Westell website."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

Answer:Wireless Connection Broadcom 802.11

Hi,
 
Would I be right in thinking from your reference to the wireless switch and to Fn+F5 that you are using a laptop and the Broadcom wi-fi unit is built into it ? If this is the case, these can fail in ways to have you pulling your hair out and not show up in Device Manager. A simple solution would be to beg, borrow or steal a USB type wireless dongle - and possibly its driver software, depending on your operating system - plug it in and see if you get a wireless connection with that. If you do, then probably the on-board wi-fi unit has failed and by far the cheapest solution is to go and buy a USB type dongle.
 
By the way, looking at your device driver screenshot, are you aware that there is a possible problem with your DVD drive, it has a '!' symbol over it ?

Hello All, I just picked up a refurbished G500 and overall I'm pretty happy with it...with one major exception. The #1 criteria when I was laptop shopping was that it provided 802.11n support (my old laptop was just 'g'). Anyway, long story short, I am not experiencing any connectivity issues however I'm lucky if I connect at anything above 55 Mb/s. I switched over to my 802.11g router and my connection speed dropped down to 5 mb/s... so there is obviously an issue. All suggestions are welcome, but let me rule out the typical initial responses: * I have a Dell laptop that connects to my 802.11n router at 150Mbs so I know the router is fine* I have tried the generic Windows Broadcom Driver* I have tried the Lenovo Broadcom Driver for Win 7* I have tried the Lenovo Broadcom Driver for Win 8* I have tried the Lenovo Broadcom Driver for Win 8.1 Also note that I'm in I.T. but wireless isn't my strong point. When I first got the G500 before I did anything to it (so OEM image) the wireless connected low (Think the highest I saw it was 72 Mbs at one point). I have since wiped that laptop and installed my own copy of Win 8 Pro (and then Win 8.1 Pro Update) and still getting the same speed. So I feel like I have pretty much ruled out any OS issues (since I've been on 3 at this point). Drivers are always a possibility but I've tried everyone out there. And of course Hardware would be my last thought although it works.. just not that fast. I'm also... Read more

Answer:Broadcom Wireless 802.11n low Mbs speed

Just to followup, it sounds like it's the Broadcom Card. Not capable of speeds over 72 Mbs. I'd be ok with that and just replacing the card but dealing with the fact that Lenovo can't seem to tell me the approved "whitelist" cards means I can't. Thinking about returning it... this is why I never buy HP equipment and now I may have to add Lenovo to my personal Black List.

What model & manufacturer of laptop, and are you using WEP or WPA on the Router? The simple thing to look for is if the Wifi adapter light is lit up on the laptop. If it is a Compaq/Hp notebook, you would have a blue light that has an icon next to it that looks like a lollipop silkscreen icon. Same color for Gateway.

I would make sure that the Wifi Adapter is Enabled, or otherwise it would never work.

The files might be a little bit bigger due to the high definition resolution but and simply VLC player (small tool for free) should be able to play such file?

> Would the the NB305 cope with this card as it requires a spare PCIe slot?
?.No?. you cannot insert, upgrade this notebook with any additional PCI cards?
This is not possible.

Answer:Can't get Broadcom wireless driver to install

Check the place the wireless driver gets unzipped to, then try to manually update the driver by right clicking on network controller & clicking on update driver & specify the directory. And then check if the driver would get installed or not.

Hi, I am running a Compaq Presario V3000, windows XP home. It normally has wireless connection through broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN. However, last night an error message saying that there was a problem with the device appeared. I disabled and re-enabled the device through "network connections". Immediately afterwards the connection disappeared from the network connections page. It has also disappeared from the 'Device Manager' except for the "Packet scheduler miniport" which is a 'hidden device'. The HP wireless assisstant has also gone missing. It remains as a control panel icon but it wont open. By this I mean, nothing happens at all when its clicked. I have tried the "add new hardware wizard" and am now trying to download updated drivers. But so far to no effect.

I remember a similiar problem when my computer seems to have forgotten it had a CD-ROM, where all evidence of it had disappeared. that issue resolved itself as if by magic.

Any Ideas much appreciated,
Michael

whether I am at home or coffee shops my wireless connection speed is very slow.  typically getting 1-2 MBPS download speed where the connection is otherwise transmitting at 20-25mbps. Example today - home router cisco linksys N router when hardwired to my cisco wireless router I get 27-28mbps speed but when I switch to wireless only it slows down to about 1.5mbps.  at the same time I can get 10-11mbps speed on my andriod phone using the same internet speed test.net application. Today at Starbucks - andriod phone ( samsung galaxy S ii ) downlod speed ( wireless ) is @ 11-12mbps, however when I run same speed test on my lenovo G780 ( windows 8 64bit ) i can only get 1.46mbps speed. So in essence there is something amiss with my wireless adapter card ( broadcom 802.11 )  but i can't figure out if it is card/hardware issue, a config issue or driver issue.  I searched the lenovo site for an updated driver but the download section doesn't even list the broadcom adapter driver at all, just intel, liteon and something else. I called Lenovo support and of course they said since my adpater card was in fact connecting then it was fine and they wanted to charge me to fix the problem... Please help !!

Answer:G780 with Broadcom Wireless - VERY slow

WOw, no responses here, must not be a well traveled site/forum. Well, I solved my problem finally, I got a new cisco N750 dual band router and that worked well for wireless connection finally, must have been some incompatibility issues with that older router and the new broadcom wireless card.  Was still having a few problems with overall connection to the internet so i swapped out my old mediacom modem for a new motorola 6121 modem and reconfiged the setup again and now everything is back to normal, well above normal really cause now I am getting 23-28mbps download speed when I am privisioned for 15mbps, but that is during the day mon-fri.  Ill see how it does during high traffic periods.... so far so good !!

After my kid went to some less-than-savory websites, my PC at home was infested with a slew of viruses.

I figured it was time to install 7057 since I had such good luck with 7000 on my netbook.

I installed and everything appeared to be fine, but then, using the Microsoft provided Broadcom 802.11g wireless driver (just as it is labeled in Vista Ultimate, which works PERFECTLY), things started to act flakey with my internet connection.

It's a Belkin branded Broadcom card, but I have never had issues with it. After switching back to Vista it's working perfectly again.

I ran Windows updates, then started to surf the web a little to find some drivers and in the middle of doing nothing out of the ordinary, internet connectivity simply dropped.

It showed me still connected, but only for local access - no internet.

I rebooted - couldn't even connect to the wireless now.

I did a cold boot - connects but local only.

No other PC in the house was having any issues.

I've tried it using DHCP and a static IP - both of which worked on all other machines as well. No joy.

The router I am using is the first generation Belkin Pre-N, which for the past year has needed the occasional reboot, but didn't really have any serious issues.It is several years old.

As I said - no other machines had any problems. They are all running Vista Ultimate (a mix of x32 and x64), along with my netbook running x32 build 7000.

So, can I suspect that there is an issue with the Broadcom driver? Or may... Read more

Hello,I have an Aspire E1-571G with Windows 8.1x64 (clean install, no upgrade and so on) and I've been having issues with my broadcom wireless drivers ever since I installed it. The troubleshooter showed up that there is a problem with the default gateway but here's what really happens: I can stay connected to a wireless network but after random periods of time I just lose internet access (note that it doesn't show up in the connections page, everything looks perfectly fine there) and I have to reconnect to the wifi to regain it. I have tried on multiple wifi network and it does the same thing. It works fine if I use an ethernet cable but that just makes it more frustrating.I have tried all the possible solutions I could find online like checking the power management settings, reinstalling the wifi card in safe mode, checking the priority of the wirelss connection, virtually anything. There is no hardware issue with it, it worked perfectly fine on Windows 7. I haven't been able to find wireless drivers for 8.1 and even though I have the latest drivers, it still doesn't work right. There are moments when I can keep my connection for more than 2-3 hours but there are times when it crashes every 5 minutes or so.Does anybody have any idea how to fix this instead of waiting for the drivers to be updated ? I've seen that I'm not the only one with this issue and it's a bit common for e1-571g users. For example lenovo users had the same problem and the only fix was to install the def... Read more

Answer:Windows 8.1 broadcom wireless drivers

boboudrescu  Hello to you!  I just wanted to tell you that your symptoms and troubles are exactly the same as mine.  While I have found some extended ethernet connection by using FIXED DNS Server Addresses (Google Public Adresses 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4), I still have the disconnection/dropped signal at least 6 to 8 times in the day.  So I know it's not a complete remedy by you may want to give that a try and see if it maintains a connection for a bit longer. I have posted information about Broadcom's announcement to get a new driver released and can only hope that it means a complete remedy to the problem with 8.1 drivers.  SOON!! So we shall see!

Hi there,
Not sure if I've got the right forum so sorry if I've put it in the wrong place, but here goes:

I'm running a brand new Lenovo B570 with Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and a Broadcom 802.11n wireless network adaptor.

Earlier today I was managing to connect to the internet wirelessly, though the connection kept dropping out. Then I could connect to the wireless router, but not through the internet, and now I can't connect wirelessly at all. With an ethernet cable internet access is fine, and another computer in the house connects fine to the wireless too, so it follows that the problem's with this machine.

The computer recognises that the networks are there, but it can't connect.

Any help would be appreciated, I've been at this all day.

Hi. I am having trouble getting my Broadcom Wireless Network Adapter to work properly. I keep getting this error

This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

I have a Gateway MX6027 laptop and i went to their support site and got the drivers. I run the setup and install the drivers, but after the restart, i still get the same problem. I tried unistalling the driver and reinstalling it again but that does not seem to work.

Answer:Broadcom Wireless Network Adapter

Did this device come with a cd with it if it did then just go to control panel then to system and under the hard ware tab click device manager and the name of the device with the question mark next to it well just right click and and click update drivers then with the cd in the cd rom let the windows search for it automatically and it should fix the problem if it didnt come with a disc then go to the website and downlod the drivers if that doesnt work then its probably a bad device thats when you send it back to the manufacturer

Answer:Problem with Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN card

Has the Wireless Network Adapter got its correct IP address from the router, most commonly a 192.168.x.x address? You can check this by opening a Command Prompt window ("Start > Run", type CMD and click OK) and, at the prompt, typing:IPCONFIG /ALLThis will show details of all network adapters in the PC.If it hasn't got the correct address, it probably hasn't "Connected" properly to the wireless network.

Hi,

I have recently refreshed my presario b1900 notebook using the recovery partition hoping to fix a bizzare issue where the CD DVD/RW drive is conflicting with the Broadcom Wirless network card.

Whenever I am connected to a wlan, the CD drive is removed from "My Computer" and from the Devices screen in Control Panel. If I disable the wlan card, go to devices and tell it to scan for hardware changes, the Cd drive is immediatly found and useable again.

I figured vista had got itself in a twist so I did a fresh install from my recovery partition only for the issue to immediatly happen again.

I have done the usual google searches, but this issue seems pretty unique and have not found anything solid.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi there - my wireless adapter seems like its dead.

My laptop isn't detecting it and I cannot connect to wireless networks. The light to indicate if the wireless is on or not, is showing orange (off) instead of blue (on), when in fact the switch is in the 'on' position.

I've tried installing the broadcom driver again, but it didn't help. I'm just about to call up HP to have it serviced, unless anyone has any suggestions?

What really gets to me, is that my laptop is just about 1 and a 1/2 years old and this is the second time this exact same problem has occurred. Last time this happened, it was almost at the end of the warranty and I was able to have it repaired under the warranty. Now, I'm guessing I'll have to pay for the repair - the warranty is finished.
This second problem has occurred during a SHORTER time span - in about 4-5 months! Last time, HP's affiliates who repaired it, said the problem was the motherboard, so the motherboard was replaced (or was it just repaired?)

So I'm out of ideas. I don't even use the wireless much. Most of the time I'm connected to the internet via ethernet. What actually causes this problem?
Does anyone know how much having this repaired or having the wireless adapter or motherboard replaced would cost?

My laptop is a Compaq V3118au in case anyone's interested lol.

Sorry for my essay

Thanks for your help
 

Answer:Problem with broadcom wireless network adapter

i know this problem. first, try to update your BIOS. if this will helps so, the problem disappeared.
second problem connected with southbridge chip(mini-PCI-express is bus which connected directly to southbridge)
third. i recommend to sell this laptop. this platform has VERY BAD QUALITY of motherboard and has development errors(lack of northbridge and videochip heatsink). HP tried to fix this problem with new BIOS in which they changed passive thermal cooling temperature, but this is not right way.
and fourth try to replace the Wi-Fi adapter.

I managed to chat with one of them HP online techs. and they helped me solve my problem for a day. What they told me to do was to update my bios, then install the broadcom lan adaptor, in that order... but since whoever that tech was... he/she was a really slow typer so i didn't know and i installed the broadcom wireless first, and i guess my wireless picked it up right away. But the next day came by and it was yet again dead. Now im pretty much stuck with an ethernet wire and i can't get any work done at school because most of my classes need online info.

Hi Mistergq,

The NVidia Nforce Controller is your ethernet hard-wired port

Do you know the exact make/model and version of your wireless card? The issues your having are all caused by the driver its using so if you have that info around I can try find another one for you to use
