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.)

What led you to the assumption that the WLAN card in the notebook is overheating? Have you previously had any problems with the WiFi? Have you made any changes or software installations lately?

I have hp 15 r012tx laptop, i did a clean installation of windows 10. My wireless card has been acting up, sometimes it will drop connections and all i have to do is reconnect and it works fine and sometimes it just disappears from the device manager. When this occurs i have to restart the PC a couple of times just to get it working again. Although sometimes it might without a hitch for a few days before it starts acting up again. I have tried installing drivers from all sorts of place but none seem to work including the ones from official HP website specifically for my model.

When i was using windows 8 the wifi was good and would never get disrupted.But i updated to windows 8.1 and now when am downloading something the wifi gets disconnected and wont show the network even if the router is on and my phone is still connected to it.I have to toggle the wifi on and off for some 6-7 times and then toggle airplane mode on and off for 3-4 times to get it to discover the network.Is this because of the adapter or driver and my laptop has a ralink wifi adapter.What should i do?Thanks

Hello  Recently I am experiencing a very serious problem with my wifi  My OS is Windows 10 16.07 build 14393.447. The windows update happened about a week ago At start the system was freezing after 10 minutes of open wifi and no connection possible to my wifi network even if it was showing up and sending the correct password I have reinstalled the sp71571 drivers for the Ralink RT3290 wireless card with partially solving the total problem. (I have also disabled any firewall during reinstallation Now I don't have system freezes and my wifi can see other networks but not mine (and maybe a few others) which is quite strange My only connection to the internet is through Ethernet cable which is to say the least inconvenient Please advise BRDimitris Natsiopoulos

Hi, My laptop has a very weak wifi detection. Only when the wifi signal is very strong can it detect the wifi. I tried contacting HP regarding the same. They said it could be a loose connection with the wifi antenna. I have been waiting for the custumer service in my area to contact me(like HP promised!!!) for quite a long time now . Now I am in urgent need to get this fixed. I was wondering if an external wifi adapter would solve this issue. Mine is a Windows 10 laptop. Model no: ab030tx (pavilion). If an external adapter works, what would you suggest? (I am confused as a lot of products available in market only convert the laptop to a hotspot)

I have a perfectly running PC and a working wireless adapter but funny thing is that my home wifi cant be detected while neighbor's wifi are listed down. The problem occur whenever I send my PC to repair, after the whole process when I want to get my PC connected to the internet but just cant. It has happened to me 3 times and total I bought 3 different wireless adapters, I dont want to keep buying new wireless adapters just to search for my own wifi. My other devices worked fine with my home wifi as I am typing this on my Iphone instead because my PC cant detect my own wifi !!!!!! VERY FURIOUS.

thanks for reading and i really hope for an answer as soon as possible because i just wana dota on my new PC.. please help me.

Greetings, I have installed the latest driver from here http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp71501-72000/sp71571.exe .My laptop is running windows 10 x64. The taskbar icon show a red mark on the wifi connection button. when i click on the wifi connections buttons - it doesnt list even one Wifi connection. It says no WiFI networks found eventhough there are couple of active SSIDs and all other devices at my home can connect to it. On the device manager - i see the driver version is 5.0.57.0 published on 5/18/2015. Is this the latest driver? .I tried the latest driver from mediatek too, without much success.  Anybody faced similar issues?

A:Wifi shows not connected with Ralink RT3290 latest driver

Roll the driver back to the previously installed wifi driver.  Updating a driver just because you can is not always such a great idea, as you have discovered.

I have a HP Notebook 15. I restarted my laptop this morning and when it came back on, all options for connecting to the internet via WiFi were gone. I am able to connect to the internet via ethernet cable, and everything works this way.There are no options whatsoever to connect to WiFi or reset the connection or anything, however the WiFi itself is working because other devices in the house are connected to it. I followed a HP technical support online page, which provided step-by-step instructions of various ways to reconnect to WiFi but nothing worked. I tried restarting the computer, updating the driver software, making sure it wasn't in airplane mode, and troubleshooting. Nothing worked. What should I try next?

it's from a company named kinamax
i am using windows 7 32 bit, and i downloaded the latest drivers from ralink site

my problem is that i can connect to routers, but i dont get internet
i thought that maybe the adapter is bad but i can actually enter the router settings from the browser, which means it's working but something prevents it from working fully

i also tried at another computer with windows xp, but same problem, but with an other 802.11g adapter it does not have this problem and can surf on the net

in other words it's the popular no internet access problem

please help me, thanks

Actually my wifi adapter can catch all other wifi signal except my wifi router.

A:my notebook wifi adapter don't get my wifi router

There are several resons.1. The wifi signal might be too weak at the point where the computer is.2. Other device radiation/signals might be blocking it.3. Your router signal might be hodden (check EWS of router).4. Signal broadcasting might have been turned off on router. Since other signals are found on the computer, there shouldnt be a issue with your couputer.

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).

Everyone's had the problem of wanting to disable the wifi miniport, or enable it to share wifi.

I have a different problem. I would like to change which wireless device the wifi miniport uses, as the external USB wireless adapter I was using died. I cannot see the wifi miniport adapter without that device attached, it seems. I don't even know if the wifi adapter even as options to select which wireless card to use even if I could get it to appear.

Is there a way to do this without having to resort to reinstalling Windows 7?

I am fairly familiar with netsh. No command line option seems to be available to switch network adapters for the wifi miniport.

It also appears that it will simply not switch to the only wireless network adapter detected, and I know it will host a virtual wifi network, I've done ICS/AdHoc before.

I tried the solution in this link: How to change default Microsoft Virtual WiFi miniport adapter?

There is a Wifi issue with Windows 10. On some laptops,Windows 10 will install the wifi driver it wants, whether it works correctly or not, and won't allow you to change it.

I bought the laptop with Win 8.1 installed. I was able to use Connectify software to tether internet connection from the ethernet to my phone through WiFi. After upgrading to Windows 10, trying to start a hotspot with the Connectify software throws the error "Your Wi-Fi adapter does not support AP mode. Please try updating the drivers for your Wi-Fi adapter". Trying to start a hotspot through command prompt using 'netsh wlan.....' throws the error "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation" In the device manager, Driver Name : Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi AdapterDriver Version : 2023.15.701.2015Driver Date : 21-07-2015 Seems updated. But, I am still not able to start a hotspot to tether the connection. Can anyone help me solve the problem?

Hi: See if the older W10 driver works instead... http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=6943827&swItemId=ob_151589_1&swEnvOid=419... If it does, use this tool to prevent Windows update from installing the updated driver you have on there now. Use this tool to hide any updates that are messing up your PC, since there is no longer a 'hide updates' option in the W10 Windows Update programming. Not sure why the title is to 'temporarily prevent...'  I have used this tool several times and when I check to hide a particular update from showing up, I haven't seen it since. I imagine you would have to run the tool again, and uncheck the particular update and then run Windows update again in order to install the update. I have saved this tool for future use. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930

A:Wifi adapter not working after auto-update on 3/30/16

Well, I've been trying the standard help route - I have an HP trouble ticket 302-717-3415.  I?ve been trying to get a callback since last Tuesday. HP Support (Floor Supervisor Rhim) says they can?t move without the approval of the case manager (Amanda), the case manager line has gone to voicemail for 6 days.  Meanwhile, my wireless adapter driver is still not working.  I believe there is a mismatch among driver files and \inf files and I need an expert to help sort this out.  Can someone please help. Did anyone in else in the community receive this auto-update on 3/30/2016? Thank you,Rich

Hi

I have a Belkin Play N600 (model No F7D4101).

It can detect access points, but for some reason wont connect to them.
When I first had it, it connected fine without a problem. As far as I can remember I have not made any hardware changes or major software changes.

I was using Vista and decided an upgrade to windows 7 with a fresh install might be all it would take to fix. Nope.

When I use it in my laptop, it connects fine first time every time.

I have tried a second Wifi adapter which worked fine, but its not mine to use so isn't a solution.

Tried the drivers on the cd, and downloaded the latest drivers.

My router is a bt home hub 3.0

Hey. I installed Build 7057, and my Dynex Enhanced Wireless-G USB Adapter (DX-EBUSB) won't work. The problem started with the device just ceasing to work after 5-10 minutes of use. I uninstalled and "reinstalled" the drivers, and there's still no luck. The device can detect my Router, but it won't connect to it. I get the "limited access" popup. Something else to note is that during the driver installation, it gives a "Please plug in the device to a USB port" message, although it won't recognize the plugged-in device. Weird, eh?

This is weird, since I was able to DL the 64-bit driver for Vista/W7 Build 7000, and it would work.

A:SinMax WIFI USB Adapter stopped working suddenly

Are we talking about the wireless N adaptor connection #2 that doesn't show as having a connection? For the drivers it's best to go to the manufacture's web site for the latest drivers.

You should also go into your routers setting and make sure that wireless N is enabled and that you are using WPA2 security with AES encryption?

If you can go into the network and sharing center and make sure that the wireless profile for this connection is filled out correctly.

On the working connection it looks like you have a static DNS entered there in your IPv4 properties, it might be best to remove those entries and type your DNS servers into the routers set up page instead.

So, I ordered a Linksys wifi card off of amazon and just recieved it today. I put the cd in the computer and follow its instructions, it told me to run the setup wizard off the cd, then power off the computer and insert the card and it would continue the setup when restarted. I completed that and the card works, somewhat. I try to connect to my network and I get the limited or no connectivity error. It said that my network has not assigned this computer an IP address. What is wrong and how do i fix it?

Hi, Please try the following LAN (wired) driver first:    http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=ob_126558_1 This allows you to connect to internet and use Windows 10 updates for WiFi or try Windows 8 driver from the following link:     https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/59480/Intel-Centrino-Wireless-N-1000-Single-Band By the way HP Pavilion g 1075 sa is not a right machine, I think it is HP Pavilion g6-1075sa Regards.

This is my first time posting so i hope its in the right place. Here it goes:

I have just replaced my WiFi card from (BCM943228HMB) to BCM94352HMB. Before replacing my WiFi card i done the following:

1. Made computer boot in safe mode with networking.

After that i replaced the card, then booted into windows 10 (safe mode with networking) and checked device manager. Everything was OK (See attached picture). I then tried to turn on WiFi, but it does not turn on. Any help is appreciated.

Hahaahahaha don't look at the other tab

A:WiFi not working after replacing WiFi card [BCM94352HMB]

Why are you booting into safe mode? I would connect a network cable to the wired network port, if possible for you. In regular windows, not safe mode, right click on the 802.11ac network controller and uninstall. Right click on the top device manager entry for the computer itself and select scan for new hardware.

Hi First of all there is an option in Device Manager; VIEW; Show hidden devices  The faint entries are hidden, like my Zyxel G202 because it is disconnected.   Also.... As an adminstrator, in a Command Prompt Window, typegetmacThis will list MAC addresses for those items that are present, and may not be connected.A good number would be 3,1 x Ethernet1 x Wi-Fi1 x Bluetoothand then typeipconfigand in the long list look for named devices have a matching MAC address.Along with Device manager this is a way to determine the number of devices. additionally type netsh wlan show driversnetsh wlan show interfaces and report the results please.

We have had WiFi for about 10 days now, and everything was ok until yesterday. WiFi went down, for some reason. We have 2 desktops PCs connected to router via cables, and 2 smartphones (Google Nexus S running Android 4.0.3 and Nokia N96 running old Symbian, if it matters) that go with without wires. The thing is, when my brother, turns on his PC, WiFi doesn't work for any of us, not on my PC nor on any smartphone, or his PC. When he shuts his PC down, it's all OK again. He did install (automatic) Windows Update.
Why is this all of a sudden happening? And how do we fix it?

Its setup cannot complete because it is stuck eternally at "detecting adapter"



I sought online but it's only people reporting the problem and NOBODY giving a solution. pleas pleeeaaaase somebody help.

Power down PC...while it off remove USB wifi adapter....power on PC. When PC has finished booting up, search in the uninstall programs list for any software related Netgear and uninstall it. Reboot and start the process again.

According to the system requirements for that device, it does not support windows 10, which may be you issue.

Hi Ron, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Try this to start

Control Panel > Administration Tools > Computer Management > Services & Applications > Services.

Scroll down this list to find 'WLAN Auto Config'

Double click on 'WLAN Auto Config' On the general tab, select from the start up type drop down menu, select 'Automatic'. Under Service Status click on 'Start'. Then 'Apply' these settings and exit from all open control panel windows.

This should then allow Windows to set the required bindings.

I just bought a brand new Asus K52F and when the laptop goes into sleep mode the "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter & WiFi Miniport Adapter #2" fail. When i turn the computer back on i have trouble connecting to the internet, and the devices have error (code 43). I can still connect to the internet though. I have re-downloaded the drivers, rolled them back, updated them, everything but it hasn't worked. Any help would be sweet.

Also can anyone tell me what the white light up button next to the power button does??

A:WiFi Miniport Adapter/Adapter #2 Error

The virtual wifi mini port adaptor is used as a virtual wifi device so you can turn your machine into a wireless AP "access point" either with commands or the connectify software. The adaptor sometimes activates itself and causes problems, even when your not using it as an access point.

It should fix the problem if you go into device manager, go to "view" top of page, then choose "show hidden devices" which should allow you to see the mini port, disable the virtual mini port adaptor and that should fix the problem.

That little button next to the power button is a reset button, it's like restarting but a little different.

My Pavilion 15 notebook has turned an occasional WiFi fault into a regular one. The wifi drops out and there is nothing in network settings about wifi at all. Device manager will occasionally show the wifi adapter, realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 b/g/n, but usually it isn't even there. On the odd ocasion it shows up, properties says there is a problem with this device - this device doesn't exist. Great. Realtek are hopeless as they seem to provide no support. I cannot roll back drivers, installing new ones doesn't work and system restore doesn't fix it. Can I replace it with one that actually works? Do I need a specific type? This problem is likely to result in the laptop taking an unauthorised flight to the bottom of my garden if not resolved as I am an angry ginger person who wants things to just do their job, it's not as if it needs to do much.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager and check the list of devices to see if your wifi adapter is listed - expect to see it with a yellow tag which shows the system has found it but not been able to install the drivers for it. Double click on the device and then the driver tab; click on update driver and wait for the system to find a solution - I am assuming you have a cable connection to the internet as you clearly have access by another means.

In searching the web for a wifi adapter for my desktop PC, I find both adapter cards to be installed inside the case as well as "dongels" which connect to an external USB port. Is it safe to assume that the technology & thus the performance would be the same, ie not dependent on where the adapter is installed?
I would like to connect via wifi to a router located about 600 feet from my apartment, so perhaps an adapter with the ability to add a high gain antenna might be the way to go?
Am considering Rosewill RNX-G300LX and Rosewill RNX-G1.

Hi,

My first post. I have a two part question.

I have a TP-Link TL-WN95N v1 PCI 300 MPS WiFi adapter. I can find no driver to work with it in Windows 8. Else where on the 'net claims were made an Atheros driver was on board but the only Atheros drivers I have is for Ethernet chipsets. I have got no where looking at Atheros.cz or the TP-Link Support site. If anyone can help me with a driver it would be appreciated.

The next part is can someone tell me what PCI WiFi cards will definitely work with Windows 8.

I am running on a wired network at the moment but not very practical as I wheel my desk into another room.

Thanks,

There are very few drivers or network adaptors that are made to work with Windows 8 as yet. Most network adaptors that worked with Windows 7 will also work with Windows 8.

Your best bet for your TP-Link TL-WN95N v1 PCI 300 MPS WiFi adapter would be to use the Windows 7 driver and install it in compatibility mode.

You can get the full wireless N speeds of 300Mb/s by going into your routers settings and set to use the "802.11n Only mode" and also use WPA2 security with AES encryption as these are made to work at full wireless N speeds. You would also need very good signal strength and a clear wireless channel for full N speeds.

I need an adapter to enable a LAN via Remote Desktop between my two rigs running W7 x64 Pro. I got to thinking about using a USB adapter, in lieu of a PCI controller, primarily for ease and simplicity, but have never dealt with either option before. Are USB adapters equal to PCI adapters, or is one better than the other? Which ever I use will have to talk with my ZyXel X550 router.

EDIT: The LAN will be operating in a permanent range of ~12 feet, going through one wall. I have no idea of how much bandwidth is required for RDP to function properly.

A:WIFI USB Adapter

Do not go with a dongle, a usb network adapter... I recently bought a Belkin USB adaptor and it has caused me so much stress and after two weeks is still not installed. My intial advice would be to stay wired but if that is not an option a wireless card in a PCI has a better advantage...running something as fiddly as a network through a USB port kind of seems wrong to me. Although I have no experience of network PCI cards I'm sure they beat the hell I had with my Belkin dongle.

Which is better, a usb wifi adapter or pci wifi card, for a desktop.
 

A:Wifi Adapter

either is fine. I think you will find a pci has slightly more power,eg slightly more range, but also have removable antenna. Most notebooks have wifi built in anyway, so portability of the wifi unit isnt an issue. I'd be going with a pci wifi card myself, mainly because of the antenna options.

A:Best USB wifi Adapter?

Well I don't know how much help this will be to you, I have a friend spending some time in china using a very similar looking thing, couldn't get him online right now to get the exact name and model, but it even looks nearly identical,... except it's black in color.

He absolutely loves it, says it will pick up a typical wifi signal nearly a mile from it's source.
(of course he's kind of out in the middle of nowhere so he's probably doing better than average)

Could anyone recommend me a good wireless USB Adapter that's not too expensive, around $15-$25. I have a USB adapter but the speed isn't what I'm paying for. I should be getting around 20-25mbps but this adapter is only getting around 9-10mbps.

Hi guys, me again.

I'm planning to move to Windows 10 but yesterday i found my linksys wusb600n adapter (which is pretty good regarding stability) doesn't have support regarding new drivers since windows 8...i'm on windows 7 currently.

Pretty much i'm gonna need to buy a brand new one, i need an AC one but so far, despite i've been doing some research, all the adapters have issues.

I bought the linksys AC 1200 adapter last year, a completely fail, speed drops and disconections.

i think these 2 are the "best" on the market currently:

1) Asus USB-AC56
2) Netgear’s A6200

Any suggestions? complaints? thanks in advance.

A:Best Wifi AC adapter 2015?

I was just planning to post a similar thread. I am also looking to buy the best USB wireless adapter compatible with Window 7 regardless of its price.

Based on my humble research of your suggested adapters, it seems both are considered great, but not compatible with Windows 10.

Thank you for this thread. And I apologize for derailing it.

Looking for what is the best desktop WiFi adapter, moving into a new townhouse and the extra bedrooms (where my office will be) does not have and network/cable outlets, so everything is going WiFi. My router is a ASUS RT-AC87U running Merlin FW, would rather internal (PCIe) but external is fine if the performance is there, would like to keep it under $200.

Most uses are gaming (so response time and stability is a big thing) and streaming from my home server.
 

A:Desktop WiFi Adapter

You could try something like this:
ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates - Newegg.com

There's no best for every situation, it's going to depend on the environment. Powerline networking may also be a good option depending on where the router is going to be.

I have a Compaq CQ58 which I've used for about 18 months. Today I have not been able to access the Internet without using an Ethernet cable. I've done some 'troubleshooting' and this tells me that the WiFi adapter is disabled. I've been told that I must have pressed a key and inadvertently switched the wireless connection off. I've checked the start up guide and the short manual that I have but I can't find an answer to the problem there. I know about the Flight Mode key and I have checked repeatedly that this is switched off which it needs to be in order to access the Internet. Does anyone know how I can re-enable the WiFi adapter?

A:WIFI Adapter Disabled

Hello Petronica,Welcome to the HP Forums.I see that your wifi adapter has been disabled. I will try to help you with this.Usually if a device is "disabled", it's more then likely in the Device Manager. Go to Device manager on your Notebook, and you should see "network adapters" in the list. Click on the "+" and it will show all of your network adapters installed. You should then be able to right click on the adapter and "enable" it, or "disable" it. As your's is disabled you'd want to enable.Please let me know if this helped. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums.

I'm planning to buy a WiFi 5Ghz USB adapter, but I don't know which one is truly plug and play.

Edit: By truly plug-and-play, I mean using the adapter without a driver taken from a website (and manually download it) or from a CD.

The target system is Windows 7, whatever version it can be.

Do anyone know if such WiFi adapters exists ?

I went to install it in a Gateway XP Home desktop and the driver shows the yellow ! and won't install correctly!? I disabled antivirus,firewalls, etc. uninstalled,reinstalled, everything, I can't figure out why XP won't install it, it installs it as a usb storage device but can't install the driver from the cd. I ran windows update too. I get a code 31 - windows can't load drivers error. Anybody have any insight into this?

I am a IT illiterate so be gentle.

Wifi is unreliable generally but hopeless since a recent Windows 10 urgent compulsory update. This prompted a bit of checking and I noticed that while I have a TP-Link WN821N V4 Wifi adapter, the device manager identifies it as a Realtek RTL8192CU adapter. Troubleshooting says there are driver issues I need to correct.

I have removed the device in Device manager and plug it in and it still picks up the Realtek RTL8192CU adapter

How can I fix this?

I'm trying to connect to the internet from a Celeron - Windows XP PC via wifi router using a usb wifi adapter. The adapter sees the wireless WEP enabled network, connects to it but cannot get an IP address. Tried three different adapters (D-link, Netgear, WIFI Lan - 400) but no prevail. Tried static Ip, didn't work.
Any suggestions?
 

A:usb WIFI adapter does not get IP address

Disable ALL encryption and any MAC filtering on the router to try to get connected. When you get that working add encryption back in, I recommend WPA and not WEP. If you must use WEP, use ONLY the hex keys, not the ASCII passphrase.
