No reception (or poor reception) for Sim 2 on Microsoft Lumia 950

Q: No reception (or poor reception) for Sim 2 on Microsoft Lumia 950

I recently added a SIM 2 (and second phone number) to a Microsoft Lumia 950. The service on the SIM 2 slot is terrible. I will have 4 bars on SIM 1 and no service on SIM 2. I've switched my cards around and still have the same problem with the SIM 2 slot.
Is there a setting that needs to be updated to use the SIM 2 slot? Any suggestions on how to fix?
Thanks!

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.)

Just bought this laptop last Christmas and I've been having no wifi problems until now. I was always getting full bars. The laptop came with Windows 10 64bit. I've been having problems with Windows 10 Start button so I reinstalled Windows 10. Now my wireless registers 1 bar when I set the laptop next to the router, 1 foot away. Just tomake sure I set up my iphone as a wireless hotspot, same thing, 1 bar (incidently, even though it is registering 1 bar it will not connect to wifi). I've gone to HP's support site and reinstalled the wifi drivers, no change. I wiped the hard drive and installed Windows 7, no change. I suspect it's the driver. The device manager shows it as "Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter". Incidently, my old HP laptop is still working in the original room with full bars) Any ideas?

Hello people with superior knowledge!

I have recently bought an HP pavilion g6 notebook running windows 7 and I am experiencing very poor wi-fi reception. The signal always appears to be weak and the connection often drops suddenly. This happens on my home network (even 7 feet away from the router,) it happens on my work network and also when I try to share the connection with my iPhone. This does not seem normal to me, as those connections seem fine to everyone else... I got a more powerful router for my home networking and the problem remains. What can I do?

Thanks in advance!

Hey guys. I have an HP m6-k015dx and it has an intel centrino 2230 wifi card in it. I also have an old, netgear wna 1100 usb wireless adapter. The wireless usb adapter I have gets extremely better wifi connection that the internal adapter and the signal strength on the networks won't fluctuate. Are there any settings I can change on the intel adapter, or can I buy a new internal adapter to replace the intel to get better reception? Thanks.

A:Wireless card with poor reception and dropping connection

Does anybody have suggestions for a good wireless card? The 2230 is really ticking me off because it doesn't have 5ghz support and reception is abysmal.

I just installed a TV tuner, but I can only pick up a single digital provider, that's 6 digital services (specificly BBC on frequency 546 MHz), and with analog I get all 4 channels but with very poor reciption. I have tried to connect my television using the same coaxel cable and same connection point in my house and my television has excelent analog picture and picks up 20 digital channels (I'm not sure how many providers that is spread over or what frequencies they are) so I conclude it's a problem with the card.

Any help or suggestions appreciated.

Why would you ask something like that when it would take to 10 seconds to try it?

I doubt it will help and may well make things worse. If you have an antenna connection, get a bigger antenna.

My WMC had been displaying normal TV reception until about two days ago. Now the picture and audio is very "jerky" as though it's coming in packets that are hesitating to be decoded. My reception on other TVs connected to the same system is normal.

Actually I've found the program to be a little quirky. It always opens in full screen and for some reason the cursor will not display on the blue screen. All I can do is hunt around until I highlight a button blindly. The remote starts it, but it seems I need to activate it twice to get it to finally tune to a station. Even if I close the screen in not full screen mode, it will always reopen in full screen.

Hi everyone
I'm new here and new to dtv as well.
Yesterday I bought a hdd dvd recorder and a set top box. I have it all installed and working but I can only get the auto tuner to find channel 10 and 7. This set up is in my bedroom and doesn't have the best analogue reception. I only have an indoor antenna for this setup.
Can anyone advise what is the best way to go and preferably the cheapest...
I have heard of options such as having another cable run off of the roof antenna, using an amplifier or getting a better indoor antenna.
Any ideas and advice would be appreciated.
Cheers,

A:Lack of reception

The color of the units conveys no useful information for solving the issues. Your problem sounds like wireless interference.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP1-SP2, Vista, etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands:

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

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

A:How to set a panic button at reception?

Are you looking to send something through your VOIP setup? If so, what hardware/software are you using? Does this need to be silent? I assume a big loud bell wouldn't work? Would it need to contact the police? Your best bet would be to contact your security company and see what they offer. In a emergency situation, it's not a good idea to depend on a DIY solution.

A:Wifi Reception Antenna Mod Question

you can try adding a USB extension cable then moving it around until you get a better signal. Since the antenna is inside of that thing, no "modding" can be done. If that doesn't work, you will have to buy another network adapter.

This one has pulled in excellent signals from my router in the other end of the house when my 2 other adpaters would only get a low or medium signal. check it out here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16833124126

Is it true that MS simply hasn't engineered a fix for this - and that we have to wait for them to do that? Does anyone know how long that will be?

A:Laptop interferes with FM radio reception

Hi and welcome to TSG.

It's probably the charger that's causing the interference, try putting as much distance as possible between the charger and the radio.

Also something metallic between them, like a metal tray, might help. You may have to experiment to find the best position for it.

If the above doesn't help you can try running the laptop on battery when you want to listen to the radio, or another charger.

EDIT : it's worrying that it tripped a circuit breaker, I think you should invest in a new charger, preferably from a different maker.

Hi and thanks for your time.
I have the laptop mentioned above and the router I have access to is a DLink DIR 600 M.
The two are literally a couple of metres apart (approx. 3 metres) and yet I am able to only receive a very weak signal, just 5 grey bars of the WiFi icon at times and no signal dominantly. Getting right next to the router gives me 4 white bars at best.
I have another Lenovo laptop and it gets a good 4 white bars at a larger distance. So I guess the router isn't faulty.

Please advise.

Your wireless cards antennas may have come loose. You can check by opening up the laptop and looking at the card.

They should look like this:

If either is disconnected, just press it down onto the circular connector, it doesn't take much force so don't crush it, you could bend the little "flaps" on the coaxial cable end.

i'm using a huawei b200 wireless gateway. are there any tips or tweaks that i can apply to get stronger signals and faster speeds? thanks
 

A:any way on how to strenghten signal reception of my wireless broadband?

Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a some examples.

Hawking [HAI7SIP] Hi-Gain 7dBi Omni-Directional Antenna

Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna

[HAO14SD] Outdoor Hi-Gain 14dBi Directional Antenna Kit

For 802.11n applications, this ZyXEL ANT1106 6db omni-directional antenna can be used.

For really long range outdoor applications, this 24dB parabolic WiFi Antenna may be a good choice.

If you have a wireless adapter that doesn't have provisions for an external antenna, one adapter that I've had good luck with is a Rosewill RNX-G1 USB Wireless Adapter. It's feature is that is has a removable antenna and will accommodate replacement antennas.

This is just a sample of available products, many people have hi-gain antennas with similar specifications, but I haven't seen any other suppliers of signal boosters.

The issue here is a new server with SBS 2003 excahnge hosting email. I can send from any user on a client system. I can remotely log in (http excahnge) and send, but none of the users receive emails.

The Gateway device has a static Ip that is NAT to the firewall then to the server. The firewall packet captures show the packets being forwarded properly. I try the telnet (server) 25 and connection fails. I check the server and the SMTP virtual connector is there and operational. I have ran the best practises and tried reconfiguring email with no luck on receiving.

I am new to the Microsoft environment so no sure best way to debug this on the server. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

I am experiencing problems with one of my contacts in Brazil. I send mails to their contact addresses such as [email protected] and they are received OK.

However when they reply or send a new mail it does not arrive & the sender does not get a "address not found message".

I have written to my provider in the UK btconnect but so far they have not come up with any possible solution. I think it might have something to do with our domain address fpsinternational.com.
The strange thing is it only happens with this one email address so one has to think the problem could be at their end but so far their IT man has been unable to solve the problem from his end.

I would appreciate hearing from anybody who may have experienced the same problem.

Sorry to bother you but you seem very knowledgeable about networking.
We travel in a motorhome about 6 months of the year. Have dsl at home but when we travel, I sometimes use my cell phone as a modem (have for about 4 years). The last couple of years a lot of the rv parks have installed wifi for the residents to use, but reception can be rather spotty in the parks. We do have a hawkings amplified antennae, (looks like a little satellite dish) which does a terrific job, but we would like to be able to extend the distance for reception.
Some folks have used an amplified usb external antennae,(in their coaches) with a marine external omni directional mounted outside. Do you have any recommendations as to what brand would be best for this use?

I had Vista then recently I installed windows XP SP3 from scratch (not downgraded). I downloaded latest drivers from Toshiba and installed them. Now I have a problem with microphone. Sound playback from speakers is well but reception level of built-in microphone is very low and often unrecognizable. I use a voip program. In Vista, microphone was working better.

Now in WXP, I am told that they can't hear me or my voice is very low and hardly recognizable. I also tried sound recorder in windows. My voice is like I am talking from ten meters away.
I don't have an external microphone so I can't tell if line-in micro. is working well.

In previous posts people mention downloading a hotfix for xp sound issues but I am not sure if applies to my situation.

My son's large apartment complex just installed wifi for its tennants however it only reaches 300 ft. from the base unit. They gave him the password to log on but he is at least 3 times farther away than the 300 ft. He is on the 2nd floor of his building which should help somewhat but the apartment next to him is located between his & the building with the base unit. His balcony & windows face the opposite direction since he is on the backside of his building. He only has the wireless card that came installed in his Dell laptop. Is there any inexpensive device/antenna/booster that could increase his range of reception in order to pick up the wifi? He can not afford what his city charges for internet.

Another thing...you are using Open DNS's, you may set it back to 'Obtain DNS Server Automatically' from your Wireless setting.

Install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector.

I hate to say it, but your best bet is to download a Windows 8/8.1 iso from the Net (make sure it's multi-language/english first!), format your HDD, and then do a clean install and call MS. The downside is that they may or may not help you activate it. Good luck!

I forgot the screen lock password i need to know how i can unlock my microsoft lumina 640

A:How do I unlock my Microsoft Lumia 640 screen lock?

You will have to reset your phone and loose whatever data is not backed up.
Power off. Hold Volume Down and tap Power. When the exclamation screen (!) appears release Volume Down.
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Up...
The spinning gears will show and your phone will reset.
Unless you remember the password it is all you can do.

My Microsoft lumia 535 phone now charges very slowly. Also, the Microsoft phone charger that came with it has stopped charging it (the charger is still working fine because i have tested it on other phones). Recently i have been left with no choice but charge it with a samsung ipad charger or i use a USB cord to connect to my desktop or laptop, though not all USB cord is working with it. Also now selective with USB cords.
The problem started after my phone battery completely drained out flat. Since then, charging my phone has been an uphill task.
Pls help. It is affecting my communication as my phone is down most of the time now

Hi all
My microsoft charger is suddenly not charging my phone and my phone is taking too long to charge if its dies at all, with other chargers. It has also started going off spontaneously....anyone knows what the problem could be? Is it my charger/charging system or software problem? And how do I deal with it?
Thanks
Sophi

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

Hello. I have a Microsoft Lumia 640 XL since March and after a very short time the secondary camera seems to bug me. Every time I am trying to switch between the main one and the secondary it keeps showing me "SOMETHING WENT WRONG". I have even factory reset the phone and nothing good happened. Is there anyone that could help me? Please!

I got locked out of my phone because i turned it off. And without any warning, the bitlocker screen has locked me out. I am really pissed off now. This isn't the first time us windows phone users have had a complaint. Now you are really asking us to buy phones from other companies.

I was watching YouTube on my phone and it just shut off and a red light appeared at the top left and my phone wont turn on. What does it mean?

A:Why is there a red light at the top left of my Microsoft lumia 950xl?

could be because of low battery , connect the phone to a charger and wait for phone to reboot normally.

I don't think this is limited by hardware since the lumia camera seems better.It could be a nice option if you want to take pictures of night sky or a lighting storm.

Will Microsoft still support (like new updates or firmwares) the Lumia devices in the future or when the Surface Phone arrive?
