I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook with Windows Because I frequently Getting network wireless kicked off have to Getting kicked off wireless network take my computer Getting kicked off wireless network to client sites I find it easier to connect to the internet via wireless Often after the computer has been idle for an extended period it would disconnect from the wireless When I came back I would have to go through a reconnect and sometimes use troubleshooting to get back on-line Recently however the problem has expanded I'll be sitting at the computer working when it just goes off line When I click on reconnect and then go to troubleshooting one of several things happen I get a message that says quot Troubleshooting was unable to automatically fix all of the issues found 'Local Area Connection' doesn't have a valid IP configuration quot Then it reconnects I get a message that says quot Investigate router or broadband modem issues quot and tells me that it could not fix the problem Then it reconnects Neither of the above work and I have to reboot Does anyone know why it is doing this and more importantly if there is anything I can to about it It is incredibly annoying to click send on an email only to get a message that I am no longer connected to the internet Thanks for any help Harry Dreier

A:Getting kicked off wireless network

I removed the email address so that you do not get swamped by spam.

First thing is to update the driver for the wireless card . . Download it from the manufacturers support site and install it.

if the problem is still there,we can look deeper into your network environment:


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.


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.


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.

Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus WiFi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here. For Vista and Windows 7, 8 you can use the Windows Snipping Tool

I have a pc desktop, pc laptop, and a Macbook. ATT DSL is my IPS, and the router is a D-link DI-624 v. C, and it has the most recent firmware.

I can be on my Mac for hours, and when I turn on my desktop PC, the Mac gets kicked off the wireless network within minutes.

Is it the router?

Don't think it's the Macbook, as I have no problems at hotspots.

My wireless on one computer (Compaq Presario M2000) has been very spotty for the past couple of days. It will not connect automatically to the wireless (router: Linksys WRT54G modem: Motorola SB5120). When I connect manually, it works for about ten minutes and then kicks me off again. I am able to reconnect, but again after ten minutes, I'm off again. Sometimes when I am connected the icon in the bottom still indicates that I'm disconnected. This does not happen with my other laptop. I tried to change my IP address, but I'm too good at this stuff and it didn't work. Any advice???

This is my work computer and while I was checking my email a notification popped up from my anti spyware which is CA Secruity. There was a "Red X" down in my taskbar but once I pressed "Kill" on CA Security scan and restarted my pc it was gone. Yet my troubles continue. I've been booted off the network, it seems. When I try to start Quickbooks or UPS World Ship or even just try to go to the network itself it just says "You might not have permission to use to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions." This has never happened before and no one at work knows why. I think the thing from the email did it. Also I have XP SP3.

Sorry for the inconvience

Hi there, I use Wireless internet for both my pc and laptop, and connect through my BT Homehub. But whenever I open the wireless connections tab, it always shows a Talk Talk Wireless option along with the BT one which I use (and sometimes a 3rd connection that is unknown to me).
I think my network is secure, as I have to put a network key in before it will connect to the internet on the PC, but when I connect to the internet on the laptop no key is required, (so unsure a bit now) but I just wanted to make sure that the Talk Talk connection and the other one that is showing, is not somebody who can see all of the files on either my pc or laptop.
Just wanted some advice really, to make sure I dont have anybody viewing my files etc. Thank you in advance.

Hi there,
I am having trouble connecting to the internet from my laptop via a D-Link wireless ADSL router.

This is a new problem on a laptop that has been used on this wireless network many times - very strange?

When i click "repair" it seems to hang at the point of acquiring my IP address.
Any ideas?

I live in a large house that has ethernet ports throughout the house. I need to have two separate wireless routers to insure I have wireless coverage. There will be one upstairs and one downstairs. Is there any advantages or disadvantages in naming both of the wireless networks with the same name?

Thank you for looking.

A:Solved: Naming a wireless network using two wireless routers

I wouldn't use two SOHO wireless routers for this.

The better way is to use APs from companies like Aruba Networks, Ubiquiti, or Meraki. These companies have APs which allow them to operate as one unified wireless network without the expense of purchasing a wireless controller. By doing this, you have the ability to add APs anytime you want which will join the AP cluster and operate as a unified device with the cluster. It allows the ability to have the APs being aware of each other and as a result adjust their output transmissions so they won't be stomping on each other running full blast. It allows you to use one or more SSIDs which all the APs will service and hence more seamless roaming throughout your house; without issues inherent with using independent APs or with SOHO wireless routers configured to use the same SSID. These systems also have the ability to constantly auto select operating channels in both the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands so your wireless network is always operating at the best efficiency/performance.

I was trying to tripple boot w/ Windows 7, win xp and ubuntu. i already had windows 7 and ubuntu on the computer, but when i installed win xp, windows 7 wouldnt boot. ive tried grub, using the bootrec.exe /fixboot and /fixmbr commands, but cant get it to load. When i load up the windows 7 install disk, it finds the windows 7 installation, but says its on an unknown disk. i can only assume that the windows xp installation kicked windows 7 off of the c: drive, and now windows 7 is floating around in oblivion.

any thoughts on how i can get it to boot?
Other potentially helpful info:

i can see the partitions info in ubuntu, but since linux dosent use a drive scheme, i kinda expected that.

i can see the drive in win xp's disk management, but i cant give it a drive letter

A:Solved: Windows 7 was kicked off of the C: drive by Win XP

ok, so i managed to get it working. i had to use the paragon partition manager to make the partition unhidden and active.(not quite sure how that happened, perhaps a side effect of the win 7 startup repair?)

once i did that, i went into the boot.ini file and pointed it to the correct partition, then reran the win 7 startup repair. it seems to have fixed it.

First of all, THANKS for looking! Here's my quandry:

My wireless router is in the living room. My printer (which is networkable but not wireless) is in the study. How can I print from a laptop that is on the network wirelessly to that printer? (without walking the laptop over to the printer and using the USB cable)

I was thinking of adding another wireless router over by the printer and plugging the network cable into the router and printer. The router would not have any other network connection (wired) and set the router as an access point only.

Would that work? Probably not but figured it was worth a shot!

Thanks again for your help.

If you are able to use the wireless router in bridged mode to connect to your wireless router in the living room then it should work yes.

This concerns my mother's 2-year-old Toshiba laptop. My mother says that sometimes she is suddeny thrown out of her computer - when she is on the internet, or reading her e-mails etc.- whatever she is doing is interrupted without warning by a Windows Update screen telling her to wait and that Windows Update is updating her computer. Then the computer shuts down/reboots. And my mother has to start anew with whatever she was doing. Is this a Windows Update setting thing?

If neither of these options are chosen, then it will reboot automatically in 5 minutes. do I get rid of that pesky box?

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together
From a John Will Post

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

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

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

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

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

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

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

I am just speculating on whether I can do this...
I have one computer with broadband and a router (Linksys broadband with phone ports) for my VoIP phone. I wonder if it is possible to create a wireless network with an old Mac (circa 1995). What hardware would I need for both computers? How expensive would this be? Would there be interference with my VoIP? (I have no problem using the phone when I'm also on the Internet.)
Thanks, jethsy

A:Solved: Can this be done?--wireless network with old Mac

It's really going to depend on the MAC. I suspect you can use a wireless access point, since it'll have the connection logic embedded. A wireless adapter is unlikely to run with most 1995 vintage Mac's I would imagine.

Ok, so I just recently moved and we bought a brand new router that could handle multiple connections to the network. I am running windows 7. The other laptop and our wii are not having any problems, just my laptop. The connection keeps going in and out throughout the day even when it is reporting full strength. Websites will fail to load, so I keep clicking on them until they do. When it gets too bad I will go unplug the router to reset it and that fixes the problem for a few hours. Occasionally it will show limited connectivity but it doesnt even last long enough to run the diagnostic to tell what the problem is. It has to be something with the computer. Settings maybe? IP address? I have the free Norton trial for anti virus right now (laptop is only a few months old). HELP!!

Well, you want to manually assign a WEP key, and you need to make it match the one in the router. I'd simply disable encryption until you get connected, then enable it and enter matching keys in the router and the client. Also, use the hex key option, don't use pass-phrases to generate the keys.

Hi, I just got a brand new lap top with windows 7. For some reason it can't seem to pick up my wireless network. It's equipped with the Intel wifi link 5300 AGN.

My wireless router is a Linksys Wireless-G (WRT54G) V8.

It's really annoying to have it prompt me saying "no networks available" when my old laptop and ps3 pick up my signal just fine.

Any advice as to how i can correct this?

Hi I hope you guys can help me.

Wireless Equipment

D-link DIR-655 router set to only N
Old Netgear Router used as access point set to only G (I set up as an access point by turning off DHCP, changing the IP adresss and set to only G.)
Wireless Printer (only G Capable)
Cell Phone (only G Capable)
2 Laptops (both N capable)
iPad (N Capable)
Roku Media Box (N capable)


If I put the router and access point on the same SSID then equipment that is N capable will connect to the G network.

If I use two different SSIDís then the printer is unreachable.

Is there a way of either (a) having two SSID's but allow the printer to be seen or (b) having one SSID, with separate access points for N and G but not allow N functioning client to connect to the G access point.

Hi all,

I'm having a recurring issue with my wireless network and would appreciate any help you can provide.

I connect to the web via a Belkin F5d7630-4a ADSL Modem with built in wireless router. The router is always on and I have a desktop PC connected via a wired connection.

When I first boot the laptop, it will generally find the wireless connection within a minute or so (although not always). If the laptop powers down, hibernates or sleeps, it sometimes reconnects, but generally can't. Once it's lost the connection, I generally need to reboot the laptop, sometimes two or three times to get it to find it again, even with the laptop sitting right next to the router.

I'm using WPA authentication and have hidden my SSID.

Can anyone suggest what I can do to resolve this, as it's driving me crazy.

Ok, so all these support websites say it's so easy to protect a wireless network. they would be pretty much right except for one detail, they dont tell you how to protect a network, they tell you how to protect a profile. while setting up the profile, enable wep security, enter the password blah blah blah and yeah you've got the profile protected, whilst you're network still appears unsecured and anyone can connect to it! can someone please tell me how to protect the NETWORK???? thanks

A:[SOLVED] how to protect a wireless network????

Hi Anne, welcome to TSF.

You need to be connected to your wireless router via ethernet cable.
Then you need to browse to it to access it's settings.

To find out it's address, go to Start > Run and type cmd. Press OK.
Type: ipconfig and then hit enter.

A list will show. Look for Default Gateway and it should have an address of 192.168.*.1 (the star being a number).

Open up Internet Explorer and then type in the Default Gateway into the Address Bar.

Your router settings interface should load. Remember this address for the next time you want to access router settings.

Next, find the Wireless Settings. Choose a name for your network and enter it into the SSID.

If there is an option to HIDE your SSID or not to Broadcast it, you should choose this option later, once you have connected all wireless devices to the network. This is added security as no one else will be able to see your network.

Find the Encryption Settings. DO NOT CHOOSE WEP
As a minimum choose TKIP, unless you know that your computer wireless card can support higher, such as AES. (Windows XP's built in WiFi Utiltiy only supports up to TKIP)

Choose an authentication of WPA-PSK if asked. This is the safer option for compatibility reasons.

Now it's time to choose a password. Make it a word you will remember. Make it long (between 8 and 63 is the limits with WPA-PSK). Replace letters with numbers. (1=I, 4=A 5=S etc etc.)

For example, if you're password was password: Use Pa55w0rd. A strong password always consists of letters and numbers.

Now you should be read to apply these settings. You will need to configure your wireless device to connect with the network, which means changing it's encrytpion to see TKIP and entering the authentication type and the new password.

I've been brief, but I hope this helps. Remember, once you have connected you laptop, hide your network.

Is it normal that you pick up the signal better in different rooms of the house, in my room the connection speed is 54Mbps, but in my living room (just down the hall) its 11mbps, and in my kitchen (right next to my room) the connections none existent.

The wireless router is above us upstairs (where the main PC is).

Any help or advice on how to improve this would be appreciated.

A:Solved: Wireless Home Network

Joe;It has been my experience that your signal strength can vary from room to room.When I had my laptop connected via wireless connection in one room,my connection strength was weak.I moved it into another room about 20 feet closer to the router,and the signal strength is now consistently excellent.
The other thing you could try,if possible change the channel you are using to communicate wirelessly.This is normally done from the router's admin /setup page.

Hi. I have a Netgear WGR614v9 and am using Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility. I have my security settings setup using WPA2-Personal (AES-CCMP) with a wireless security password using special characters and upper and lower case letters. I have also changed the default login password. At any given time I will have a laptop, home computer, iPod touch and X-Box connected. My internet provider (Clear) told me that for every connection I have, it will increase the last number of my ip address by 1 with my router being .1. My laptop used to be .2 but recently it changed to .5. I think this makes sense if all the other items are connected (router + 4 connections). Right now, the only connections are my laptop and iPod but my computer is still .5. Does this mean that someone else is using my connection or once my computer is .5, it will always be .5, no matter how many connections I'm currently using?

A:Solved: Is my wireless network breached?

Your network is probably still safe, considering that some person has only speeded up the password crack by using many Nvidia graphics chips running in parallel. But a long complex passphrase should still foil that brute force attempt. I'd say a passphrase longer than 16 characters is good.. Internal ip addresses are probably assigned through the router's DHCP server, and each ip address is given a lease time. So, any particular computer will get to keep the same ip address for a period of time. With some routers, you can configure how long that time period is, but not all routers have that feature.

I have a Gateway MX-3701 laptop, and I just installed a Linksys WRT54G Wireless router into my home network. All other computers are working just fine; they instantly connect to the wireless network and all is well, except for this gateway laptop.

At boot, I try to connect to the network, and it just stalls, giving me the "Waiting for network..." message. It does this until the window goes away, in what I'm guessing is a timeout. After about 5-10 mins of the computer being on (it fluctuates randomly), I am able to connect to the network.

A:Solved: Wireless Network Hookup

Just follow the directions that come with the router to set it up. Make sure you enable the encryption, or you'll have the whole county hooking up to your system. The router is a firewall in itself but it's a good idea to run a software firewall, like ZoneAlarm or others.
You may want to ask a moderator to move this thread to the Security forum. I'm sure those folks can tell you all sorts of helpful hints and fix you up if any problems pop up.
