Q: Help with boosting internet speed via a wifi hotspot

Hello hope someone can help me, my brother is currently serving abroad with the military and is fortunate enough to be on a base that has wifi access. Trouble is there is that many people using it he is only able to load msn home page during his off time.

He always has full signal strenghth and has and acer aspire (not sure of the model at the minute) with a built in wifi card. His only problem is it is so slow and will time out rather than open anything other than the home page.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I doubt he can increase it If there is limited bandwidth and soo many people are using it, then it will likely go slow
Suggest to him he should go on when theres not many people browsing etc., Night?

Hello everybody
I have a question
Actually I need a program that I do not know is there any program like this or not but I heard there is something like this for Linux but I am not sure about Windows.
I am using the internet in my university and university limited download speed for every system up to 100 KB/S. I heard there is a program which can introduce my system to the router as 10 or more systems so I can download with 10x100 KB/S
I will appreciate if you let me know is there any program to do that.

We cant help you with something to bypass the University's network policy. I suggest you tailor your needs to theirs, or ask them if it can be modified.

I am currently stationed in Germany, and live in a village that has horrible internet. I cannot stream netflix, hulu, and downloads take several hours.

Is there a way to combine the internet that my cell phone receives and the wifi router I have at home to increase speed?

I have the ability to create a wifi hotspot from my cell phone if this helps.

Just something I thought up in my head, and wanted to find out if it is possible. Thanks in advance.

I have setup a WiFi Hotspot with MyPublicWiFi. Allowed Sharing in Local Area Connection *2. Everything seems to be in order as the Screenshot shows. But when I try to connect a mobile it gets connected to "MyPublicWiFi", no internet sharing from the USB Modem. I am on Windows 10 Home, with all updates installed.

A:Trouble setting up wifi ad hoc hotspot - cannot connect to internet

APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing - 169.254.0.0) means you couldn't discover any DHCP servers. I don't have much experience in wireless routing but if in bridge mode I guess router 2 was supposed to be somewhat transparent. Normally (shouldn't be the case while bridged) DHCP protocol can't be routed, would need a DHCP proxy set up at the 2nd network segment.

Hmm, to not complicate things, can your host machine connect to the wireless network (normal private IP address)? And if so, to the Internet?

When connected to the 2nd router, in cmd (copy paste):

Code:
ipconfig -all | clip
It won't show anything but copy info to clipboard automatically, paste here.

1st. I have a desktop and nearby there is wireless internet WiFi hotspot. Please I would like to know how can I connect it to the wireless internet WiFi? I am thinking of buying this: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/802-11n-150mbps-wifi-wlan-wireless-network-usb-adapter-53538

Apart from that adapter do I need something else?

2nd. Where the desktop is, I have no reception. I mean because my cellphone has no reception when it is in the same place where the desktop is. But when I put my cellphone in the window around 12 feet away, there is reception. So I am wondering if I can make a 12 feet long USB cable from the desktop to the window and with the Wifi/WLAN Wireless Network USB Adapter in the window.

Any suggestions and help?

Thanks

A:No internet connection after I turned my laptop into wifi hotspot

To my knowledge the WiFi adapter work as either a connection point to a WiFi router/Wireless access point or AS a wireless Access Point, WiFi Hot Spot, but not both. So you would need to connect the notebook to a router (internet connection) with a Ethernet cable. Then the computer will take the internet from the Cable and send it out to connected devices.

A:internet connection not shared by my laptop turned wifi hotspot

If the sharing tab is missing then it means that the driver isn't up to date. About the only way to fix that is to look for a more recent version of the wireless driver. Just updating or reinstalling the driver might be enough although some adaptors simply can't support this feature as per Paul Thurrott's page on this.

I wanted to share my ethernet internet connection over wifi so I have created a wifi hotspot on my laptop using "NETSH" commands in cmd prompt.
I have enabled sharing of ethernet connection by going to ethernet properties>>sharing>>check box (Allow other network users to connect through this computer) but the internet is not being shared.
I have configured other devices with static IPs. Gateway and subnet mask is also correct. I am also using different IPs of the same subnet.
Everything was working fine until perhaps I tried installing Connectify software, I uninstalled it later.
Kindly help to troubleshoot the issue.

A:Wifi boosting

What wi-fi router are you using? On some, you can change the transmission power setting.

Another option, if you don't mind tinkering, is get a wi-fi router that's compatible w/ custom firmware like dd-wrt. Flash the router w/ the custom firmware and configure it as a repeater bridge. I did this at my parents' house years ago. Bought a refurbished Linksys WRT54G2, after flashing and reconfiguring the router, I was able to extend the range.

Tomato is another customer firmware. Haven't used it so can't comment on the pros and cons.

A:Boosting computer speed safely

Overclocking is never a "safe" activity. To overclock, one must be willing to accept the hazards of such including shorter life and occasional burnout of the processor if you exceed the max limits it was manufactured to operate under.Some of the "hobbyist" or "game" priority motherboards already have some degree of overclocking processes built in so they do so automatically.I would research thoroughly and become expert before I traveled that path. You could do irreparable damage to your processor and motherboard.By the way - I don't believe ram managers do anything worthwhile for an XP machine. The op system is more capable of regulating ram than third party code is.It looks like you could use some web based scans (requires IE not Firefox)Web based online Antivirus and anti-malware scans: (these can be run regardless of whatever else you are using.

Hi guys, I have a Cisco dual band wireless router that I previously bought to cater for my house network to support older device that runs on wireless G and new devices that runs wireless N.
One set to N only on 5Ghz
Another set to Mix mode on 2.4Ghz

Now that all my older devices has all being replaced with devices that supports wireless N.
If I disable one band, and enable only one, the N-only mode on 5Ghz. Will it help boost the signal or network in any way? If not, is there anything that I can do to fully utilize the dual band capability of the router since that now I do not need to run dual band.

Thanks. (Sorry if my questions sounds stupid, I'm not so good in this tech stuff)
 

A:Boosting wifi signal

No, your question is valid 100%, it isnt stupid. The only downside about 5GHz, is its range. The 2.4GHz band has been around longer and the 5GHz one is still an emerging technology. I had a dual band router in the past before I switched to an ISP that forces their own router on your, and I noticed no noticeable difference in performance. The 2.4GHz is fine for any average user. I would distribute the more heavily used to devices to the 2.4GHz band since it is more consistant. the 5GHz band can be used for any device that is connection heavy (Skype calling, etc.). Keep in mind though, a lot of computers and devices still dont support the 5GHz band, you will notice this when you search for routers/connections on your devices.

A:Need help in boosting my Wifi signal.

I read a neat (and cheap) trick. Build your own reflector using a tin coffee or beverage can.
Cut the top off completely, cut 9/10ths of the bottom off.
then cut down the side (opposite of the remaining 1/10 on the bottom)
Spread the sides open to form the reflector. use the bottom as the base (the 1/10 still connected on the bottom holds it all together)

Point the concave reflector towards the living room.

I know.... it sounds cheesy, but it works! Or spend the money for a real booster.

A:Creating Wifi hotspot with built-in computer wifi card.

Hi Cromsy,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as that. You are connected to the router fine with your computer, but that tells us nothing about the ipod because wireless is off (but that's not the whole story either - you need something extra to do what you want). The following article should tell you what you need and how to do it: How to Connect iPod Touch to Windows 7 Ad-hoc Wireless Network. Although it says Windows 7, there are procedures for Vista as well (and the software will work with Vista).

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Hello,

I have a Dell Latitude D620 laptop that I bought in 2006 and it runs EXTREMELY slow, whether I am on the Internet or just doing basic tasks in Windows or MS Office. It has Windows XP, some basic software (like MS Office), and only a few files (because the hard drive crashed last year, so I only put a few files back on it, after installing the new hard drive). I know it's relatively old, but is there ANYTHING I can do to increase the speed of the computer, without buying additional memory? Any help I can get with increasing the speed will be greatly appreciated.

Also, I don't know if this is a different issue, but sometimes the laptop seems to get too hot (at the bottom) after being on for too long.

Thanks in advance.

First, make sure your vents are clear of dust. Heat can cause all kinds of issues. Do you have a cooling pad?

Second, have you scanned for infections?

Hi there,

I have a new problem that has just cropped up today. I am no longer able to connect to public wifi or my phone's wireless hotspot. My laptop either will not connect or connect with limited access. It has connected without issue in the past and as soon as I returned home it connected to my wifi here.

What I did notice is I am connected to an unidentified network with no internet access in addition to my home wireless network:
Specs:
Acer Aspire S7 392
Windows 8.1 64 bit
Intel Dual Band Wireless 7260 (driver updated)
Disabled my firewall and antivirus

I just connected to my phone's hotspot again and here is what I am coming up with:
Attachment 57082

And when I run ipconfig/renew
Attachment 57083

Any ideas what could be causing this?

A:Can only connect to home wifi - no public/hotspot wifi

What Internet Security software are you using? Are you using any third party software to manage network connections?

So, there are many articles out there that will show you how to use cmd prompt to create a wifi hotspot (eg: this article Internet Connection Sharing - Create WiFi HotSpot)

However, is there anyway to do this with TWO separate wifi adapters? That is, use one adapter to connect to your router and the other to act as the router? Some articles seem to indicate this is the ideal setup but no one seems to specify how to control which wifi adapter is used to create the wifi hostpot in command prompt.

Thanks for any help.

If I can get the basics to work, the next step is to try to integrate a VPN so that I can basically use my PC as a VPN router (but with no physical ethernet connection).

Hello I have a high-speed Internet connection at home The main computer is connected through an Ethernet cable off a cable-modem and both the download and upload speeds are excellent just as the ISP claims it to be Then the afore-mentioned cable-modem is linked to my Mbps TP-Link WR ND router so that I can get Wi-Fi on my iPhone Internet WiFi Speed Home I have been running several Internet speed Home WiFi Internet Speed tests and the download speed just won't go any higher than Mbps Upload speed is perfectly fine Gone through some tutorials and then all the settings on the router and everything is fine Plus the iPhone is designed for Wi-Fi ultra-high speeds well over Mbps Am I missing something How come I cannot get any more speed When I do the tests the phone Home WiFi Internet Speed is just centimetres away from the router so there's no walls objects or anything that may slow things down by over as it is the case What can I do Is there any possibilities of getting at least of the maximum speed

A:Home WiFi Internet Speed

This really isn't a Windows 8 issue , you will need to ask in the TP-Link support area/forums to see how you can change your wifi channels etc to maximise your throughput.

I can say that under normal use you will never get 300 Mbs using wifi , the network overheads and more will reduce that to 180-200Mbs maximum , 300 is a very idealised figure.

As for iPhone 5 , I do remember there were issues with wifi speeds , binarytoad details the issue here iPhone 5 Slow Wifi Fix (workaround) - YouTube

Hello all. Here is my set up. I have 1.5M internet service coming into my CradlePoint CTR35 wireless router. The two devices I have are my desktop, and an iPad. When doing a speed test at speedtest.net, I find that my desktop running windows 7 gets about 1.45, and my iPad is only pulling 1.36M. I realize that isn't a big deal, but why would there be a varience between the devices? Shouldn't they be able to test out the same?
 

A:WIFI internet speed varience between devices

The Operating System parameter settings that determine data transfer rates are slightly different on the two machines. Differences between computers on the same LAN are normal.

With many older OS's and probably the one on your iPad these values are permanently set in the registry. They are just general values that will usually give a good data rate. Sometimes these values can be changed to improve the flow.

Starting with Vista and Windows 7, the OS actually monitored the data flow and could change some of the values to improve it.

I have two XP desktops, a Vista desktop and a Vista laptop. All will show slightly different results on speed tests to the same server.

The two XP's have the same values for all their changable settings, but one always tests about 0.04 M higher than the other.

My Sony Vaio laptop is experiencing slow internet speed even though the signal level shows as excellent. This is only when using it upstairs, where it is normally used. In the same room as the router it is fine. This has only just starting happening and it was OK anywhere in the house until a couple of days ago. To make it even more confusing my wife's notebook and my iphone work fine on the network in the bedroom. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

Need some pretty quick help here if possible! I have a USB external wifi antenna, and my laptop has an internal one. My aim is to basically receive internet through the external one and great a little hotspot by the internal one. I was wondering if this was possible?

I'd tried with Ad-hoc networks but for some reason other devices couldn't connect to the network I created. I'm just wondering what I could've done wrong!

Anyways, I hope this makes sense! If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated! I will award all help with rep !

Ok, you only require one wireless NIC in order to create a hosted wireless network, you can receive and send the wireless through a single NIC. You can use either one for this but you don't need both.

You can use the command prompt to set this up but using the connectify software might be a better choice if you want to connect on start up. You can also do this with a virtual router, take your pick.

Connectify For Windows 8

This one shows the manual set up using the command prompt.

http://winsupersite.com/article/faqt...ion-wirelessly

Or you can install a virtual router.

I did run Windows Update just after the install just to make sure it downloaded the latest driver for the WiFi Network Adapter (it did download one).

Power Plan is set to High Performance.

I haven't used AVG in years so I am guessing go into AVG firewall rules and look for Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) and allow any/any for inbound/outbound traffic.

I have it set up manually through command prompt to a certain name and password, but once in a while, it defaults to "LDC_SAP_(PC name)", with the same default password. I would then have to re-enter the information I changed it to again.
 
How can I prevent this from happening?

There is no need for one. Windows already has the capability built into the OS. Intel does have their own software for this called "Proset Tools. You can download it at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sea...ng&ProdId=3507

From the looks of it the Intel WiMax driver doesn't have an updated Windows WHQL driver. Because of this it also doesn't have the Microsoft virtual WiFi miniport adaptor which is what the adaptor uses to create the virtual access point.

I can't see which version of WiMax adaptor you are using but you might try Windows update for an updated driver for this adaptor.

When you install the updated WHQL driver you will see the virtual driver in the Device Manager and on the Network Adaptors page.

After that it should be easy to set up the access point using commands or connectify software.

I have 2 wireless network adapters - internal and external.
So hotspot can be created via two ways (but I don't know how?):
1. Create hotspot on second one while using 1st one for wireless connection.
2. Use the same wifi card by using "AP mode". This feature is supported by Connectify but I don't want to use this software (it causes driver problem) and I don't know any other software.
 
I have a poor wifi signal so it connects only to laptop and I want to share this connection so that I can connect my Android phone to the Internet.

I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to networking so I'd really appreciate some help here I run a pool tour out of hotel venues and we're building a system to allow a laptop at each pool table running win XP to feed scores back to the laptop on the tournament desk running Win I've had no problems connecting these together and sharing folders using a Workgroup and an old Linksys wireless router The Win laptop is connected via ethernet cable and and Wifi wired router? hotspot the XP laptops are all connected to the linksys via wireless At this point nothing has an internet connection as the linksys router has no connection to an ISP and this is fine - so far so good The problem I have is that the Win laptop on the tournament desk not the XP Wifi hotspot and wired router? laptops at the pool tables also needs an internet connection So my idea for this is to connect to the hotels wireless hotspot whilst keeping the connection to the linksys via the ethernet cable I need to test all this before getting to Wifi hotspot and wired router? the hotel so to try and mimic the set up I've simply tried to connect to my own ISP's wireless router I use SKY Broadband in the UK I can connect to my wireless router but cannot get any internet pages maybe the linksys is telling my laptop I have no internet connection I read about bridging the connections so tried this I then got an internet connection but lost the connection to the other laptops via the linksys I rebooted and it switched the other way round - no internet but access to the linksys I'm not sure if what I'm doing is a valid thing to be able to do or even if my home wireless network will behave in the same way as the hotels wireless hotspot As I'm a novice when it comes to networking I'd really appreciate it if someone could offer some advice The attachedd PDF has a diagram showing what I'm trying to do

A:Wifi hotspot and wired router?

If you open a command prompt and type ipconfig /all you will get information on all the active ethernet adapters on the windows 7 laptop - wireless and wired. Only the IPv4 addresses need to be considered.

In all probability, your ISP's router will give you an IP address (as a DHCP server) in the range 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.255 - usually reserving 192.168.0.1 for the router itself.

The linksys may also be giving out addresses by DHCP in the same range.

You need to set up the linksys to use addresses in a different range, for example 192.168.35.2 -192.168.35.255 with the linksys itself as 192.168.35.1 (the '35' can be anything between 1 and 255).

This way it will be unlikely that there will be any conflict between IP addresses that the linksys gives your XP and Win7 laptops network and the internet connection IP address. (but check with the hotel first what their IP range/ranges are, just in case!)

You will need to set up another work network (not homegroup - it would be best disabled since XP cannot use this type of network) for the wired connection on the Windows 7 laptop from the network and sharing centre - set up a new connection or network.

You will need to make all laptops members of the same workgroup - you could call this "Tournament" or some other relevant name other than the default "MSHOME" on XP or "WORKGROUP" on Windows 7.

Make a shared folder e.g. shared as "Pool" on each of the XP machines, and make sure that network file sharing is enabled on the XP machines.

You should not share anything on your windows 7 machine since it will be connected to a public network and the internet.

The linksys probably has a MAC address filter, which can be set to deny access to any PC except the laptops themselves. The MAC address also appears in the output of ipconfig /all ( it works the same in XP as in Windows 7) when run on each laptop.

Make sure that each of the \\XP-PC-name\Pool shares is visible by the windows 7 explorer and you should be ready to go.

Hi guys,
I have an issue I would like to resolve. I will try to be as clear and precised as possible.
I'm only allowed to one device to an internet. My laptop connects directly to internet WiFi. So the laptop (Windows 10) serves as a hotspot. But I have two other devices I want to connect. A PC (Windows 7) via Ethernet and a smartphone via WiFi.
Right now, I can either share the WiFi in laptop to the PC by bridging, or to smartphone via hospot, but NOT both at the same time. I want to connect both like this;

What should I do?

Thanks

Sad. So much in Windows 7 lies just beneath the surface waiting to be discovered. Opportunistic charlatans write a simple GUI facade and claim that functionality for their own. This is a prime example. With a few simple console commands Windows 7 can do everything that this "connectify" thing can. Try this:

1) Start, type "cmd" and press ctrl+shift+enter. That will run an elevated command prompt and may trigger a User Account Control window.
2) Type "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=<name> key=<password>" and press enter. Substitute <name> for the name of the access point you want to create and <password> as it's WPA2-Personal AES passphrase.
3) Type "netsh wlan start hostednetwork" and press enter.
4) Note that an access point named <name> as appeared on other wifi enabled devices nearby.

The same caveats as "connectify" apply: WPA2-Personal encryption using the AES cypher ONLY and you must use a WHQL-certified WiFi adapter and driver.

To disable the access point open an elevated command prompt as in step 1 above, type "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow" and press enter.

I'm trying to set up a virtual hotspot (like with the program Connectify) to allow my Nintendo DS to connect to the internet through my PC. Connectify would have worked if it weren't for the fact that the DS isn't compatible with Ad Hoc mode nor is it compatible with any form of security other than WEP (the program uses WPA2).

So, are there any programs that can allow me to create a virtual hotspot with WEP? I mainly run Windows 7 but I have access to Linux Mint.

I then typed "netsh wlan start hostednetwork" and got the following response
" The hosted network could not be started
The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation"
How can I determine what this means and how is it resolved
I did check using the command prompt that this was possible with the computer and received acknowledgement
Many thanks for any assistance

A:Setting up a wifi hotspot - with difficulty

Probably silly idea , but have you checked that the wireless network adapter is fully enabled in Device Manager?

Hey,

I've got a Nintendo DS, and I'd like to get it hooked on the internet.
So I bought a wifi usb stick so I can create a hotspot, we've got Wireless Internet at home.. But my DS won't get trough the WPA2 encryption.
Since I'm not pretty experienced with network and creating hotspots, this step is a problem for me.. I've been trying for months now, but I can't figure it out.

Can anybody help me creating a Wifi hotspot? I need to have it open (unsecured) or with a WEP password.. it just needs to give my Nintendo DS access to the Internet..
I've got the following wifi stick:
Tenda W311U
And I run Windows 7 (And Ubuntu, help for Ubuntu would be appreciated (since Ubuntu is my main OS), but how to do it in Windows 7 is enough )

Thanks in advance.

The following link explains how to set this up using connectify and two other small software programs that allow a connection to the proxy server. I've never tried this before but maybe the link will help you set this up.

I am looking for a rental device to provide WiFi hotspot through cell phone systems in UK or France. Recommendation is appreciated.

A:Recommendation for a rental WiFi hotspot device

The cellphone services in my area that provide Internet service also provide the hotspots that work with their service. They do rent or allow purchasing. The ones I've seen were branded with their name, e.g. Verizon and AT&T.
