I'm wondering if someone here can help ... I just recently installed a Hawking router (HWR54G, version M). This evening I installed a Belkin wireless notebook network card (v. 802.11b), and my laptop cannot locate the wireless network connection. I called Belkin and they said the problem may lie with the router, and I've since sent an email to Hawking, but I've gotten a lot of help from this site before, and was just curious if anyone here may have some insight.

My router is connected via a cable modem, and I'm running Firefox on my desktop. Both my desktop and laptop have XP installed.

I appreciate the time!

A:cant connect to the network "a dhcp error" not wireless and no router

You have to tell us what network you are connecting to so you can get help. No info = no help.

You could start by describing physically how your computer connects to the lan and then the internet.

Hi,

I get this blue screen and my laptop reboots. This occurs very frequently at times and at times the laptop runs smoothly and all of a sudden reboots.

I get this error message "IEEE802.11b WLAN Card Utility has encountered a problem and needs to close".

It started occurring ever since i have replaced the LINKSYS WAG54G router with a new version.

I have contacted Linksys several times but they just dont have a solution to this problem. They even got me to download new drivers for the router.

The funny thing is whenever i use a different router or a wired router this problem does not occur.

Linksys has suggested i update my wireless drivers by downloading new drivers from the laptop manufacturers website. I am not too sure if i should be taking this route.

Would anyone know why this problem is occurring.

Regards,

Jewan

Hi,

My router is N300 Mbps which means that the max transfer speed would be 8MB/s.
Now, I am getting an actual speed of around 12,5 MB/s which means that router is working as N490 Mbps, although the connected speed is 300Mbps.
How can it be? Is my router being some sort of "overclocked"?

I've had my HKC 21.6" monitor for over a year now, and i've been using it with my PC at 1920 x 1080 with no problems.
However, two days ago the screen suddenly went black and displayed the message "Out of Range". I've had to drop the resolution to 1680 x 1050 in order to see anything.

I've tested the monitor with the same VGA cable but with a different computer - this worked fine, so i'm assuming it's something to do with my computer.
I've tried reinstalling my video drivers, but this had no effect. My card is an ATi Radeon HD 5770, haven't had any problems with it before.

Obviously this is pretty irritating since anything other than the native resolution tends to look ugly.

Any help appreciated
 

A:Monitor displays "Out of Range" at 1080p (graphics card issue?)

Best thing I can advise is. Grab the latest WHQL ATI and CCC drivers.

before installing, uninstall your ati drivers in safe mode and your monitor from device manager.

Boot into normal mode and install the drivers. Make sure in setting you take off check for only display resolutions this monitor can handle,,, ok give it a shot.. let us know.. gl

I just installed a new video card (HIS ATI Radeon X1300 Turbo IceQ), my previous card was an ATI Radeon 9500. I had no problem upon upgrading, everything went smoothly. I also installed the new ATI drivers (with the catalyst control center).

Now, the problem is that at random times (mostly when I'm browsing the net), the computer either freezes so that I have to restart it, OR the monitor blacks out and displays "Sync. Out of Range" and again I have to restart.

My current desktop settings are 1024x768 at 70Hz. I never had this problem with my previous video card (my settings with my old video card were 1024x768 at 75Hz, as you can see I tried turning down the refresh rate but had no luck).

I'm on Windows XP, with an AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 768MB RAM.

Any ideas would be very appreciated.

Just bought a Hercules 3D Prophet 4000XT 64MB PCI video card which has the Kyro chip. My KDS led monitor has no video except a box stating input is "out of range". The input is detected at 84 hrz. The monitor's range is 60 - 70 hrz.

The seller says the card is capable of a range from 60 - 85 hrz. He told me to " clear CMOS and change settings in control pannel". I don't know how to clear CMOS. Please advise. Thanks.
 

A:Video card "out of Range" of Monitor

Your monitor cannot display the resolution or the frequency. Lower the setting to say 800x600 60hz and bump it up from there until you get the messaga again.

I have a Gigabyte BA-B85N Phoenix Wifi rev 1.1 motherboard, so when I try to install the WLAN driver off of Gigabyte's website, I get to the install screen and get "error update.cpp 1185". I have tried letting windows install the driver through device manager and opening the local folder, but to no avail. I get the same error.

I have also tried running it as administrator, redownloading the driver, and all that. I still get the same error. Any ideas? I just need to get wifi working.

I am running Windows 8 Pro 64bit. Thanks!

edit: I am assuming WLAN is the correct driver to install in order to get Wifi working, if I am wrong please correct me.

Hi everyone, my first post.

Just bought a used IBM T41 Thinkpad, which I have to say I'm more than satisfied with. Everything seems to be working fine, however I've yet to have it working on wireless lan. The signal is there, with the little ball swinging it's heart out in the icon tray. Problem is, I get this message coming up all the time saying: "No Certificate has been found". I thought at first that it just meant that I needed to put my DSL code in, but it appears that's not enough.

On further checking in the WLAN properties menu there is a certificate listed with the name "C&W HKT Securnet CA Root", with an expiry date 16.10.2010. When I try to uncheck the button that's next to it, it won't allow me.

Does anyone have any solutions for this?

Many thanks.......!

My uncle managed to scew his computer up, whenever it starts windows, the monitor starts displaying "out of scan range". I know what the problem is, he changed his display settings to something the monitor couldnt handle, but I dont know how to fix it if I cant see anything in windows?? It will display in safe mode, but changing the display settings in safe mode doesnt fix the problem. Is it possible to fix this if I used a boot disc? The only idea I can come up with is to get a command line program that changed resolution manually, but I dont think that would work

Hi,
I am using Windows Vista and when I turn on my computer there are vertical coloured lines running down the monitor whilst it is booting up. When the computer appears to be booted up, there appears a message on the monitor saying "signal over range". I have restarted in safe mode but am unable to change the refresh rate as the PC doesn't seem to be recognising the monitor - it is certainly missing from device manager. I have uninstalled my GeForce 7500 LE graphics card and rebooted but still have the same problem. Could there be a problem with my graphics card?

Hi

I have recently bought an LCD logic LCX20LN1 20" tv which has a pc input. When i booted up my pc with the new screen attactched, just after the windows loading screen came up it came up with this message on the screen "out of range". I heard that this happens when you purchase a new monitor but have still not found any help on the internet about how to fix it. I am using Windows XP. Also the TFT screen that i used before that was 17" if that helps.

Thanks
 

A:New LCD logic 20" screen. When booting up pc comes up with "out of range" message

Did you uninstall the drivers for your previous monitor before installing the new one?

"out of range" is most commonly caused by a resolution\frequency setting that the monitor does not support.

I have 2 laptops and a desktop on my home network, all plugged into the router. The 2 laptops connect to the network and internet. The desktop shows "connected", is able to ping the router but cannot connect to the internet.

All are using XP home sp2. The desktop was just introduced to the existing laptop network. I have swapped the router, cable, and ethernet card for grins (i am tech enough to have had some of each laying around). Clearly it's a settings problem.

Dynamic IP address.
/ipconfig indicates same gateway as laptops. ("192.168.0.1")
Worked perfectly on a previous network.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am at my wits end.

While flying through my computer. I found this instance that has me confused. I was looking at my network. Decided to go to the map and saw the basic map. (image 1).

When I clicked on "see full map" link it showed the network map, only between my computer and my wireless router there is a connection to a "?". (image 2)

I am wondering why this is so. I tried right clicking on it, no option available. And when I put my mouse over the pictures of computer and router, a link option is available to click. When I put mouse over "?" there is no link hand. I was wondering should I be concerned. Any explanation would be helpful. I am using a belkin wireless router.

A:W7 Network map tree with "?" between laptop and wireless router

I've been watching this thread in the hopes that someone would answer your question. Since that has not happened yet, I'll repeat some of what I've read about this. Some people have speculated that the mapping process is seeing two separate networking devices (a wireless access point and a router/switch), but it does not want to assign the same name to both devices... so one of the two devices just gets a question mark.

I have no idea if the info above is correct. I would be interested in hearing the thoughts of others on this topic.

I have been searching for days to resolve this. I just bought a new laptop and cannot get online. It has no wireless card. I am wanting to connect my desktop and the laptop to my Linksys wrtp54g router for cable internet. The desktop Is working through the router just fine.

I have them both wired to the router but the laptop only shows "Unidenified Network, Limited or No Connectivity". The laptop did connect through the cable modem directly wired. The Laptop runs Windows Vista. When I type "ipconfig".. I see "Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address 169.254.172.55" How can this be when my routers IP is 192.168.5.1?

I have tried so many things to solve this with no answers. My girlfriend just wants to enjoy the internet on her new laptop and I can't fix it. Help is Greatly Appreciated!
 

A:Laptop thru router showing: "Unidentified Network"

Alright dude.
Your laptop is actually acquiring an invalid IP address that's why it could not surf.

Now this should do the trick.
Go to my computer, rightclick then select properties then go to device manager.
Under device manager, look for network adapters, click the plus sign to drop down and click or highlight the ethernet controller, it depends on the brand.
Select it and right click on it.
Now shoose uninstall.
don't worry dude, done this a bunch of times.
It'll remove the network adapter on your list.
Now still under device manager up on top, click action then scan for hardware changes
It'll automatically detect the network adapter you uninstalled and install it again.
check network adapter again just to be sure if you have installed it.

It will try to acquire again an IP address and yes you are right it should be starting with 192 not 168

This should fix the problem.

Hope this helps, goodluck

I had a new Windows xp pro OPS installed on an older pc and it worked at the store where the technician installed it. When I try to open it at home , I get this error message after I see the Windows logo..in the middle of a black screen "Out of range!"
From microsoft support ,I learn that I needed to change the refresh rate on my monitor.
In safe mode I follow their instructions, but when I get to the monitor tab in settings, it does not give me any other options than "Use hardware default settings".
I wanted to change it to 60 HZ.
My contact at the store will not be there until next week, so if there's anybody that can suggest another resolution for this, I would really appreciate it.

The first thing I would do is get your landlord to reset the router if possible and see if that solves the issue , with these things the connecting hardware is always the first thing I always check.

Hi folks. This is after doing an upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2 mind you. Not sure if that matters.

I was having problems with RDPing to my Win7 clients so I checked that remote desktop was enabled. When doing so I saw that it informed me that I had to allow rdp access in the firewall which I know had been done before. After looking around I realized that my network profile had been changed to "Public". I also noticed that my active network shows as "unauthenticated". What does this mean and how can I fix this? How did this happen? Thanks.

Disabling the Outpost firewall usually won't cut it. You may need to uninstall it completely. Although I'm confused as to why you have a router in the middle of your network when it should be the first thing that everything else is connected too.

I have purchased an older IBM Thinkpad that has been upgraded to Windows 2000 Pro. When I am in range of a known public Wi-fi network, or nearby to my home QSL modem (that has a built in router), the computer does not indicate that it has located an available network. This is when using, separately, both a Wi-fi card and a USB wireless adapter. (I have installed the required drivers.) When I consult the network connection information, it says, in either case: network cable unplugged. I can connect to the Internet via my home modem, if I plug the computer in directly, using an ethernet cable. But this does not solve the issue of being able to use a public network, when away from home.
I have also tried to set up a new network, but Windows 2000 does not seem to offer "setting up a wireless network" as an option. Any ideas?

Hello,

I need help with this Diskette issue please. "Diskette Drive 0 Seek Failure"
I've had this problem a few times in a couple of years and I have been able to fix the error by pressing F2 and going to the SETUP. And I've done this with no issues. But this time I thought I fixed it but now I get this new error: "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". After I press Ctrl+Alt+Del it takes me back to the same error massage "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". Need help please. This is a Dell Desktop, Windows XP.
Thank you.

Sue

Windows 7 home premium 32bit
zonealarm basic firewall
wlancard dell 1450 usb

Info:
the card never had a vista or windows 7 driver. A computer skilled
took out a folder from the windows xp installer.
Through device manager the folder is installed as driver, and the wlan card works.
I wanted to use ubuntu 'remote terminal server'. Connected via pc to pc lan cross over cable.
Maybe the connection succeded because ping test was ok. But never made the
program 'remote terminal server' work.
At a point zonealarm made trouble, allthough disabled.
Shutting down computer worked.

Error: Next time I turned on the computer, wlan didn't work. The wlan card makes
the connection but there is a yellow triangle on the wifi icon in taskbar.
Under network it keeps hanging, messaging 'identifying'.

I tried this:
Reinstalling zonealarm basic.
Reinstalling wlan card folder driver.
Didn't work.

Now I don't know what to do.
Suggestions?
Thanks.

A:Wlan card hangs (identifying error) during connection to router.

SInce this isnt a supported Win7 wlan adapter, you may be looking at a purchase of a new one. Unless you can get that tech to do his magic again? Or do you have the driver files he used in a folder somwhere still?

Hello. I'm trying to fix my grandmother's computer (her second one actually... lol) and I had to reformat and reinstall windows 98SE. The only problem remaining is trying to find a driver for her network card. This computer is a clone and I don't have much information except what I can see.

The ethernet "card" is really tiny, and it's not PCI. It connects via a cable directly to the motherboard. The card says "PCNet" on it, and has no other markings. The motherboard is an Intel 810L Chipset, and I think the processor is Pentium II but can't really tell. I checked Intel's website but I can't find this specific driver. I don't even know what this "card" is called or where to look.

Can anyone help me!! My nice old grandma needs to surf the net in Florida! Someone help her! Thanks!!

I have just installed a Netgear wndr3400 Dual Band Router. On installation it asked to update software to which I selected yes. Part way through I got the following "nic helper - internal error", "application error". After this all installation goes smoothly but in the end not one of eight computers I have will connect wirelessly. They see the network but will not connect. Geek Squad had no idea how to address this other than another router which has the same problem. Does anyone know how to get my computers to connect. I am running Vista and 7 on various machines both desktop and laptop.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

That dxdiag "no sound card" message is misleading as I've found it says that if no driver OR sound card. I think you're missing the right driver

Also, it would seem from your post you have High Definition (HD) audio. Which means you'll need to find the right High Definition audio driver. (AC97 pre-dates HD audio so the Realtek AC97 couldn't be right)

Try starting on the HP support website HERE and enter your model number or they have a button where they'll try to identify your product and drivers for your model. They should list an HD audio driver there

Welcome to SF,

Firewall might be the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone".
On some Firewalls or Security Software you might need to completely uninstall them.

I recently switched from dial-up connection to DSL. For about a week I enjoyed it before installing a wireless router so that I could hook up MagicJack Plus. I was able to install the new router (Cisco Linksys WRT1120N) with my DSL modem (D-Link DSL-2320B), but now when I try to create an internet connection I get the 651 Error or "The DNS server isn't responding"

I already tried some things; uninstalled my network adapter, updated it, disabled IPv6, and disabled auto-tuning. I had issues with my modem before installing the router, I couldn't load sites such as Facebook or Hotmail even with Chrome, and my I contacted my ISP about that although I'm unsure whether they looked into that at all...

Please help me

A:Installed new wireless router and now getting "Error 651"

It's the router that is failing to announce dns would be my guess.
Have you dug into its settings yet?

The computer isn't picking up anything because nothing is being supplied.
I would reset both modem and router too.

A:"The network did not assign a network address to the computer" error

Disable encryption and MAC Address filtering on the router and try to connect. Assuming success you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

If unsuccessful make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter. Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

The control panel opens fine. I can access all items in the control panel
except "Network and sharing center" and the "User accounts" (I can't access this sections via the taskbar either).

What happens when I open one of the two items is I get a popup saying the
following; WINDOWS EXPLORER HAS STOPPED WORKING.

I used to be able to access these items. And one day, I just coulodn't anymore...

Anyone knows how to solve this? Thanks.

Hello Newbie,

See if running a sfc /scannow can find and fix bad system files that may be responsible for this.

Hope this helps,

A:Can't access "Network and Sharing Center" nor "User Accounts"

Hello Jayrrus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend that you use Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to scan your system with at boot to help make sure that your system is malware free first.

Afterwards, you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had these issues to see if that may be able to fix them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

i don't know if i am missing something or it is a bug on w10.
i click "add new bluetooth device" and then i can pair a lumia, ok. i can see my phone in "join personal area network" window.
if i try to pair the phone from "join personal area network" window i can see it in bluetooth devices list but not in "join personal area network" window.
so... it is a bug?! did i make anything wrong?! what is the difference between "add new bluetooth device" and "join personal area network" on w10?! what is "join personal area network" used for?!
thanks

A:"add new bluetooth device" vs "join personal area network"

Most likely a bug with your Windows phone, not Windows 10. Microsoft is not supporting the Lumia line that well. It does help when you ask for help, that you also post the model of the phone, what OS version it is running, along with screenshots or logs of what is wrong.

When I use the netsh command to set and start the "Hosted Network", I can set the settings fine, but starting the hosted network yields "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.". I have already tried the fix where you enable the "Virtual Adapter" device in device manager, but it did not change anything.
On the flip side, using the "Mobile Hotspot" option inside of the settings starts fine and works correctly.

I was checking my system configuration and happened across this weird one!

Note the spelling:
"Monitor Virutal Wlan Service" - "Virutal" rather than "Virtual" but either way, I can see no reference to such a process on the net.

Searching instead for "Virutal Wlan" turns up a number of items, some suggesting disable a process and some suggesting an infection.

I am running Windows 10 having gone via the 8.1 route without any serious problems. Used to be a member of the Seven Forum. Not really a technical expert, rather a fairly competent pensioner!

Good evening,

I am currently working on an ASUS G73S.

Windows 7 64-bit Professional.

My issue is that upon every restart, the WLAN adapter is starting as "OFF" (ex. fn + F2 will turn it on.)

I would like to know what I can do to make my WLAN adapter to start as "ON."

There is no BIOS option for the adapter.

Power management:



I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the latest drivers, older drivers, third party wireless software, etc.

Here is info on my wireless adapter.







Please let me know if there is anything you would like me to try to resolve this issue...
Thank you so much for your time.

I have a way for you to get the vendor. type device manager on search. with the usb dongle in go to the usb section. If there is an unknown device (with yellow triangle on it) right click the device. go to properties>details. Pull down the bar that says device details and pull it down till you see hardware ID's. take the number that has VEN_____ and numbers in it. copy and paste it into google a nd it will take you to the vendors site. find the driver and you are good to go
Good luck and let us know if you need help with this
