Q: Tethering Issue

I am trying to use FoxFi with my ASUS TF101(jelly bean) and my HTC Desire C. I cant seem to get the Tablet to see the phone in the network settings. Can anyone help me please or recommend another free tethering app that will allow me to pair my devices wifi?

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Tethering Issue

The web site doesn't offer much info, but found the following on the Market. See if they help if you haven't tried already. My Samsung Fascinate (GB 2.3.5) is rooted and I have Barnacle installed. I've connected my Transformer Infinity and Dell laptop to it w/o issues.

Here are some tips to help your usage:
1. On some models if you run into WiFi problem after using the Hotspot, simply reboot your phone and rename the hotspot before activating to clear the issue.
2. For some Samsung phones if your computer is not able to get an IP address, try to turn on WiFi on the phone first and make sure it does not connect to any WiFi network, then turn on FoxFi.
3. FoxFi is tested on non-rooted phones. If your phone has a rooted ROM it may or may not work.
4. When WiFi hotspot is activated you may also see a hotspot notification of the built-in WiFi hotspot feature. Please ignore it. As long as you do not sign up for a tether plan you won't be charged.
5. If you enter or change the hotspot password, make sure you rename the hotspot also before activating.
6. Sometimes Windows need a "repair" on the WiFi menu to get a correct IP address.Click to expand...

Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager, any devices with yellow flags need to have drivers installed. Even if you don't have any yellow flags, Update the Chipset Driver (for USB support)for your computer at the Dell Site

Okay..... I work on computers and I have been asked a couple times about tethering cell phones. The last one was about tethering Samsung Moment. I have been to all the other web sites and forums. I am still trying to get some update info.

1. Does this still work for this model. I heard that they (the company) might try to block it.

2. If it still does work, would it be easier to go bluetooth or USB.

3. I heard that the speed is really slow. Or is it.... with 3G and 4G coming out.

People are trying real hard to save money and tethering has been around for a couple years. First I have heard of it. Any up to date info can really help.......

So I have a s phone and it's connected to my aunt wifi who is my neighbor and there's a tethering option on my phone so I use that tethering option to provide internet to my desktop computer. when I connect the phone and turn on the tethering option "Presto!" I have internet connection, BUT every few seconds, minutes or hours, I don't know what happens all I hear is the disconnection sound on my pc and no more internet which then I have to unplug the usb cable plug it in again and tick the tether option on my phone to have internet again. Is it a USB driver problem or something? I already downloaded SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones_v1.5.45.0. for what I think could be usb driver problems but still it disconnects from time to time.

A:USB Tethering

I also have tried the turning of the selective usb power suspending option.

My computer has bluetooth compatibility but not a bluetooth device or card. I had herd of tethering before but only for internet I want to know if there is a way to tether my notebook to my cell phone and use it as a bluetooth card replacement (example: Connect my phone to my computer via cord turn on the phones bluetooth abilitys and use them on the computer to connect to bluetooth devices such as Ipod, other phones, computer remote controls, other bluetooth computers ect.)

A:Tethering for bluetooth

No, but for about $10-15 bucks, you can get a BlueTooth dongle to put in your computer. It's a standard device so the drivers are already in Windows.

The security team of a customer is in the midst of testing Windows 7 security features and came up with the following queries.

While conducting some tests on desktops using Windows 7, our internal audit department observed that it is possible to transfer data from a Windows 7 desktop to
an android device using Media Transfer Protocol even if the USB port is blocked through AD Group policies. Similarly it is also possible to perform this operation on windows XP desktops if media player v 10 is installed on them. They
also observed that if a phone is connected to a Windows 7 desktop, USB tethering allows the user to bypass the proxy and access internet unrestricted.

I wanted to check with you if these are known issues on OS 7 and whether there are any solutions available to prevent them through AD policies on Windows 7 OS?
Would appreciate any help in this regards.

A:Prevent MTP & USB tethering


Please check whether other UBS device could work after you applied the policy.

In addition, please try to enable it again and run ?gpupdate /force? in command prompt to ensure it has been applied.

A:HTC Aria tethering

I'll save you some time. I called all around and finally found out that AT&T had sold me a tethering plan for the aria and they do not support tethering for it. If you root your phone you can then use some tethering software but AT&T won't let you do it on a stock phone. I rooted mine, even got the cwd6 mod running on it, but never did as well as this which works without root or any mods. In fact, I stopped before writing this sentence and spent the $18.95 for a lifetime license. It's a usb tether but it has bluetooth tethering capability too as an alternative to the wire.

On windows 7 I used to use my iPhones hotspot to connect to the Internet. I recently purchased windows 8 and the install went fine.

Hi there, sorry but its another question about 'limited' connectivity!!

Just signed up to mobile contract and was given a Sony Xperia T especially good for tethering, I was told (!).
Followed the setup on the phone - all good. Except my laptop running windows 8, shows limited connectivity - strong signal though.

I have scanned forums to try and find an answer and have none so far.
I get wifi connection from the flat share that Im in, works pretty well, never limited connection.

I am ok with computers, but pretty basic to be honest i,e i may need high end explanations! -

Would appreciate any help as the reason i signed this 2 yr contract was for the tethering abilities as I may soon be living in a van!

A:All networks unidentified, except tethering

Your first ethernet adapter does not have a default gateway but it received an IP address via DHCP. Is the DHCP server ( a router?

Your second ethernet adapter has a fine address stack however it has invalid DNS servers so you won't be able to browse the internet with that interface.

Your wireless adapter isn't receiving a response from a DHCP server and has an auto configuration IP address. I am assuming that this is because your DHCP server is on the subnet.

Your virtual box machine also isn't receiving a valid response from the DHCP server however this should be the least of your worries and upon correction of the above this should also resolve itself.

Can I ask, are you able to show us a network map at all so we can see what devices are connected to which and where your current machine is in relation to other devices? It appears as though you are trying to use your machine as a router, can you confirm this?

Many Thanks,

Your stop error: BSOD Index | STOP 0x00000035: NO_MORE_IRP_STACK_LOCATIONS Points to a device driver then memory.

Can you check to see if any of the verizon software was installed on your machine? It might be causing this.

Tried a restore point to before your first attempt then checking if 7 can see it okay?

Tried running a sfc /scannow, then checking?

Tried "Last Known Good Configuration", then checking if phone works?
According to my wife's galaxy nexus manual (verizon), If you're using 7 you don't need verizon's software.

Here are two passages:

Connect to a Windows computer via USB
You can use a USB cable to connect your phone to a Windows computer and transfer music, pictures, and other files in both directions. This connection uses the MTP protocol, which is supported by most recent versions of Windows.
If you are using USB tethering, you must turn that off before you can use USB to transfer files between your tablet and computer.
When you connect your phone to the USB port on your computer, its USB storage is mounted as a drive and appears on your computer screen. You can now copy files back and forth as you would using any other external device.
When you're finished, simply disconnect the phone by unplugging the USB cable.
Related settings

Settings > Device > Storage > Menu > USB computer connection

Share your phone's data connection via USB
If your computer is running Windows 7, Mac OS X, or a recent distribution of some flavors of Linux (such as Ubuntu), you can follow these instructions without any special preparation.
If you're running a version of Windows that precedes Windows 7, or some other operating system, you may need to prepare your computer to establish a network connection via USB.
1.) Connect your phone to your computer with a USB cable. A USB icon appears at the top of the screen, and the notification Connected as a media device or Connected as a camera appears briefly at the top of the screen. For the purposes of tethering, the type of connection doesn't matter.
2.) Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > More > Tethering & portable hotspot.
3.) Check USB tethering. Your computer is now sharing your device's data connection.
4.) To stop sharing your data connection, uncheck USB tethering or disconnect the USB cable.

What software (if any) have you installed on your Android phone?

I have installed PDANet+, which has a component that runs on the PC as well as a component that runs on the phone, to support the USB Tether mechanism.

I also have installed the FoxFI addition (it's part of the bundle), but have never been able to get Bluetooth connectivity to work, although USB tethering works fine (in experiments anyway, as I never truly use this because of my 2GB data plan from Verizon and also because I'm always running my laptop as wired/WiFi in an inside location and never need my phone for out-in-the-world portable use).

A:Tethering Info Needed Please

Well if you are getting mobile boardband from Verizon you might want to look at their USB dongle for that service I know they are about $100 bucks then some kind of mail in rebate deal.
If your looking to Tether a phone to your laptop you will need to see what your phone requires to in order to hook it up 60% of the time its a special cable or some type of bluetooth setting. The issue is a lot of companies charge extra to do so I know Verizon wants to charge me another 30 bucks a month to do this with my blackberry even tho I pay for unlimited broadband on my phone. Best bet go see your local Verzion store and see what the deal is in person before just doing so that way you wont get extra charges on your bill.

Long story short I recently started working from home due to some health problems My problem is that I live about miles out of town in the middle of nowhere we have to pipe in the sunlight After years of living here we finally got a landline type internet connection instead of either satellite which scores no better than dial-up at twice the price of fiber optic or tethering our cell phones Requirements for accessing the company website software adapter for usb tethering Looking virtual a for is being hard Looking for a virtual adapter for usb tethering lined to the modem Mbps Download and Mbps upload my connection is averaging - Mbps download and - upload Our tech support suggested quot bridging quot for lack of a better word basically leaving both the wireless and wired connections on coming off my one router After thinking about it I just don't see getting any more speed that way but if I was to add a cellular tether on top of the regular ISP speed it just might push me up close enough that I can work without being kicked off the system because my speed just isn't fast enough For about a year and a half before getting AT amp T U-verse we turned off the satellite internet and just tethered the cell phones which was faster more stable and even cheaper than satellite so tethering isn't a big deal My question comes down to what can I do to hard line to the modem router which is required and run the wireless to the modem router plus usb tethering my phone Or am I looking for something that doesn't exist and just need to hard line then wifi the phone Any other options or ideas I can get will be greatly appreciated

A:Looking for a virtual adapter for usb tethering

Don't they offer a 3G modem for their service ? That's usually faster and more efficient than tethering a phone.

Hi guys, I have an unusual problem. I have a Toshiba A305D running windows 7 enterprise, and I tethered my phone last night and was able to connect to the net via my phone. However now I am unable to connect to either of my previous 2 networks. For some reason I can now only connect to my phone tethering. The networks show up as usual but when I try to connect it says unable to connect. When I try and diagnose the problem it does not show a problem, or cant find a solution.

Strange thing is my wife has a Compaq Presario with the same os and it does the same on hers now also. Neither computers are able to connect to connect to either of our old networks, only to the phone via tethering.

I have searched high and low for solutions but cant find any. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks in advance..

Resetting your router comes to mind...and use DHCP because it makes it easier to connect.

I have a problem where whenever I connect to the internet using usb tethering with my phone(Asus Zenfone 5 LTE) my laptop will crash after a certain amount of time. Using other connection didn't cause the crash. This has been going on for almost week now and I really need to solved this problem immediately.

Here's the spec for my laptop:


AMD A10-5750M


500GB Hard Drive

Windows 8.1 64-bit

I have also attached the SF Diagnostic Tool zip file.

Hopefully this problem can rectified as soon as possible.

A:BSOD dpc_watchdog_violation while usb tethering

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

You have a D-Link Wireless G DWA-110 USB Adapter and an ASUS Android USB Ethernet/RNDIS device

I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

Nearly all of the memory dumps in the WER section of MSINFO32 are involving USB devices (usb8023x.sys)
The same goes for the memory dump analysis' that I ran.
Please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates - as these drivers (the one's that are blamed) are Windows drivers. Windows drivers aren't often at fault, but it's best to have all updates in order to be sure.

Please remove the Western Digital software from your system. The wdcsam64.sys driver dates from 2008 and is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems
Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

npf.sys - this driver hasn't been added to the DRT as of this run. Please search Google/Bing for the driver if additional information is needed.

Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

The drivers that are struckout don't have updates available (AFAIK).
DO NOT delete them, just leave them be.

If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Hi all,
I am Using Windows 8.1 (Update 1). Whenever I connect My android Mobile to USB and activate USB tethering, the Whole taskbar becomes slow and lagging. Though I can click them, it takes 5-10 Seconds to Switch to other programs.However alt+tab switches to other program with ease. Pressing Start also is lagging. I Cant Click taskbar notification icons also. All these lagging stop as soon as I turn off my USB tethering. I Cant use wifi hotspot also as its connection drops every 10 Minutes or so. I am sure the problem is cause by Windows OS only, because I restored my windows 8 Backup and USB tethering works without any problem.

Unfortunately despite my best efforts to find a better alternative where I live my only option for unlimited internet with any speed whatsoever is to tether my DROID DNA phone to my computer Android phone. Tethering using my using the app PdaNet I ve been doing this for over a year now without any problems I have an unlimited data plan through Tethering using my Android phone. Verizon and although I only have G at my house it is still far better than anything else I ve found Recently I started playing the online game World of Warcraft Obviously the speed isn t ideal but it worked perfectly fine for about weeks One night the game started to get really slow and after a minute or two would freeze up entirely When this happened I would have an error message on my phone at the PdaNet screen that read quot Communication with client has been broken quot Despite restarting things this continued to happen I assumed that it was because the weather was bad outside but the problem didn t go away the next day When I noticed that my internet speed when browsing the web had slowed down as well I figured that although I supposedly have unlimited data that Verizon must have slowed me down for crossing over a certain download barrier I ve heard that they do this So this went on for the next week until the first of the month when my data was reset through Verizon Well I m still having the same issue when trying to play the game It will work alright for anywhere from seconds to minutes and then all of a sudden start to get slower and slower until it freezes completely and I have the quot Communication with client has been broken quot error screen on my phone I m not sure if my internet speed in general is back to normal or not because I haven t spent enough time online to know for sure but at the moment it seems to be I m sure there is some detail I m leaving out but if anyone has any experience with tethering or PdaNet especially when gaming or any familiarity with this error message that I m receiving I would really appreciate any sort of help or advice On a related note if anyone knows of a better option for unlimited high speed internet than having to use an app to tether my phone then I m definitely open to hearing about that as well Thanks a lot in advance and sorry for the length nbsp

I'm still having slow internet speeds. I tried doing a factory reset on my phone but that hasn't helped. I also tried a few of the other, lesser known tethering apps and I'm not having any luck with those either.

I haven't ever created a thread before, so sorry if I'm in the wrong part of the forums, but here goes.

I currently use PdaNet to tether my iPod to my PC using USB mode. This allows me to have internet on my PC without a real adapter. But recently, I bought Windows 8, and PdaNet didn't work with it. You can't do anything on a PC without interwebz. Any programs I can install on my iPod AND Windows 8 that will allow me to continue tethering? P.S. I'd get an adapter if I could. I'm smarter than the average

The Wi-Fi chip on my phone is fried, and only bluetooth is working.
Right now, I'm using an old phone to share my home internet connection via bluetooth to my main device.
I'd like to do this on my PC instead, since I leave it on 24/7 but there is virtually no information on how to do this no matter how much I search.
Windows 10 has a built in hotspot feature for Wi-Fi, but nothing for bluetooth.

I know that it's a fairly common question but I have just not found a way to make it work.

I want to use my iPhone as a modem but do so wirelessly through Bluetooth.

After downloading the latest Centrino drivers for my laptop's Bluetooth adapter, I successfully paired my iPhone and my laptop. The problem is that I can only share music files. For some reason, I can't share Internet access over Bluetooth. It's not coming up as an option in the "Devices" section once both devices are connected.

Am I doing anything wrong or do I need to create a network from within Win7? I tried setting up the drivers using Microsoft's internal database of drivers but it couldn't find any drivers for my Bluetooth adapter. As a result, the two wouldn't even pair up. Downloading the Intel drivers fixed that problem. But now, I find myself not being able to tether without USB.

Dear Experts

My Windows 7 laptop connected to internet via my mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 by tethering portable Wi-Fi hotspot.

I am a technician field and I need to connect my laptop via USB port to an Ericsson MiniLink (telecom NE) node to do configuration.

Whenever I connect the USB cable from the laptop to Ericsson my internet gets dropped, while this didn?t happen to my coworker who is using the same laptop brand as mine.

By the way the Ericsson software that I installed on my laptop create the attached socket called : "Ericsson USBLAN adapter" on my computer's network and that would be used for the USB communication


Any advice what should I do to avoid this problem

I just set up tethering on my iPhone (firmware 3.1), and it works great with my laptop, which is what I set it up with. I connect with a USB cable, and my laptop is running WinXP SP3.

The problem occurs when I plug into my Desktop PC, also running WinXP SP3. Also using USB. It recognizes the iPhone as a camera, which my laptop also did, but, unlike my laptop, under Network Connections, there is no Local Area Connection icon that represents the iPhone, and of course the iPhone does not have the blue band at the top of the screen that says "Internet Tethering", and it is not functioning as a modem.

How do I get my PC to recognize the iPhone as a modem?

I have recently purchased an Acer Aspire One AO756-4890 11.6 Netbook PC - Intel Pentium Processor 987 with 64-bit Windows 8. Using EasyTether on my Samsung Galaxy III, I can browse the contents of the folders on the smartphone but cannot tether the laptop to the internet although I can tether an older model of Acer One to the internet using the same smartphone. I am inclined to ascribe the problem to the compatibility of the software with Windows 8 and have tried other tethering software with no luck.

Does anyone know any tethering software compatible with Windows 8? Please let me know.

Hi for me USB tethering of a Galaxy Note and a Toshiba Satellite Z -A do not seem to work well with an almost out of the box system I just purchased a Toshiba Satellite Z -A with Windows which has been updated through Windows Update to the very latest Microsoft patches and through Toshiba tools to the latest updates there The McAfee software product has been removed I can work with the Galaxy Note just fine in MTP mode charging Alas the moment that I switch on USB tethering on the phone the Windows networking subsystem goes into blocking mode and nothing comes good out of it I tried disabling the complete IPv stack in Windows but did not have all that much success I am using the right Remote NDIS driver by Microsoft I remember having successfully used USB tethering before and it seems to sort-of work on an aging Windows installation with the same phone on a different laptop Any suggestions on how to get USB tethering to work reliably and quickly in the above setup would be greatly appreciated I understand that I am facing work Z30-A 3 not - USB Smartphone does tethering Galaxy Note Satellite too many variables including operating system networking stack the Toshiba system utilities USB implementation and the Samsung Galaxy Satellite Z30-A - USB tethering Smartphone Galaxy Note 3 does not work Note firmware

A:Satellite Z30-A - USB tethering Smartphone Galaxy Note 3 does not work

So ...

Windows 8.1 decided to update the Samsun USB modem "drivers"

Windows 8.1 decided to update the Visual C++ runtime library which I had had to install Samsung Kies

I decided to remove root from the phone ("unroot")

NDIS network comes up immediatedly
12 MB/s down, 3 MB/s up

Which is when I noticed that I had run the speed check on the mobile network, not WLAN -> mobile -> laptop.
Which now also works.

*Problem solved.*

Sorry for the noise.

Dear Experts

My Windows 7 laptop connected to internet via my mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 by tethering portable Wi-Fi hotspot.

I am a technician field and I need to connect my laptop via USB port to an Ericsson MiniLink (telecom NE) node to do configuration.

Whenever I connect the USB cable from the laptop to Ericsson my internet gets dropped, while this didn?t happen to my coworker who is using the same laptop brand as mine.
By the way the Ericsson software that I installed on my laptop create the attached socket called : "Ericsson USBLAN adapter" on my computer's network and that would be used for the USB communication

Any advice what should I do to avoid this problem

How is the S3 tethered (Wi-Fi, BT, USB)?

In the Network Connection screen can you press the ALT key + N and select Advanced Settings.
Take a screen shot of the Advanced Settings screen and post in your next reply.

Hey all As the thread title says I need this device driver and I need it fast As I don t have an active broadband connection anymore I am trying to connect to the Internet using my Android device as a modem USB tethering But I am curently stuck here It seems I need a driver for this to work I am using for on Request: 'Android Windows driver device USB Vista 64- tethering Phone' Solved: Windows Vista -bit with SP and a HTC Desire as modem When I Solved: Request: USB tethering device driver for 'Android Phone' on Windows Vista 64- connect the phone Windows is looking for drivers for a device named Android Phone It fails to find it and asks me what to do I obviously can t let it search for it on the Internet And I don t have a disc with drivers I didn t get one I am using the Android phone to type this As I have limited screen size and no mouse or keyboard it s really hard for me to do a Google search to track down this driver issue As far as I can tell this should work out of box on Windows Vista It seems that only Windows XP users are having this issue Even on the Google Help it says that Windows XP users will need a special driver to enable USB tethering But then again why am I having this problem on Windows Vusta then I need to get back online fast as I have bills to pay and things like that Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Solved: Request: USB tethering device driver for 'Android Phone' on Windows Vista 64-

Hi again! I just wanna let you know that I have solved this little problem. As it turns out it does pay off reading the manual. Also, it is not completely true that Windows Vista comes with appropriate drivers pre-installed. You still need to install these, even on Windows Vista, and on Windows 7. But I still wish that things like these could just work out of the box. But for that reason alone, I may need to switch to a different operating system.

The solution was very simple. I did need to install the device drivers. But I didn't need to download and install them separately, they came pre-packed as part of the HTC Sync tool. And this thing comes cleverly stored on the MicroSD of the phone. So I just installed that and I was able to use the phone as a modem. It worked very good. The Internet connection did hang up on me once, but after a reboot of the phone it worked again and I was able to do my business effortlessly.

The thing is, I have terminated my old subscription, and I completely forgot about it and when they were supposed to shut down my connection. So it just happened, unexpectedly. But I have ordered a new Internet subscription with my new carrier and I am expecting it to be activated in couple of minutes.

Thanks anyway!

P.s. Just for the record, the HTC Sync tool is stored on the root of the memory card, the MicroSD card of the phone. It should say something like 'HTCSync_2.0.28.exe'. Just plug the phone to the computer in USB mass storage mode and locate that file, run it, install this tool and it should be all set for tethering.

Hi Windows N amp S center is slow initializing connection and Sharing extremely new Network when (Tethering/dongle) center really Network and Sharing center extremely slow when initializing new connection (Tethering/dongle) slow I have no idea what s causing it Symptoms not present when I connect to my wireless router But when I tether get a connection from a USB device the N amp S Center stops responding for about minutes Network and Sharing center extremely slow when initializing new connection (Tethering/dongle) At some point it will come up with the quot Public Network quot box How can I debug this Even after the network is initialized the N amp S center is still very slow I assume it s doing some automatic something or other that keeps pinging this that or the other The USB device would serve an internet connection that has a reasonably high latency Lots of network tools seem to slow down especially while the connection is configuring itself This is probably because all of the services involved Network and Sharing center extremely slow when initializing new connection (Tethering/dongle) are interlinked somewhere and are waiting on the same mutex to be released or something On Ubuntu however same hardware the internet connection is ready to go in seconds Thanks x

A:Network and Sharing center extremely slow when initializing new connection (Tethering/dongle)

Has this happened since you started trying to tether? If not, can you think of anything that changed between the time it worked and when it didn't?

It sounds like a driver that either is poorly written or had a bad install.

What is the Manufacturer and model number of both the PC and the tether device?

A:Windows 7 unable to run windows update on iphone tethering

Welcome to TSF! I assume you are using IE to browse the web, right? Try opening the windows update site and see if it loads. If it loads all the way, u should be directed to a page that advices you to use the Windows Update feature in Control Panel. Am also curious. Whenever you connect to a network, windows asks you to place that connection in a category, either Trusted, Home, Public etc (not sure about all the categories). These categories are crucial because they decide how the windows firewall regulates network access of various windows components and programs. Which category have u placed your tether connection? The McAfee suite that u run, does it include a firewall, or it's the antivirus package only? The reason am asking is because these bundled security softwares sometimes come with firewalls that may not have the windows update sites in their exception lists. About mcafee not updating, does it allow you to register and activate? Usually it prompts you to activate before it can update. The registration process requires internet connectivity. Also check proxy settings on mcafee if there are any, and make sure they are set to direct connection AND NOT PROXY.

A:PC restart during graphic-intensive tasks. PSU issue? GPU issue? Mobo issue?

You've got Asus motherboard, hence the first thing I'll look at considering the issues you are having, is at RAM settings/voltage in the board's BIOS, these should be exactly the same as on RAM packaging, but even that doesn't guarantee that it may not be the issue, so basically you'll need to fiddle around a bit with settings/voltage in case default specs doesn't work.

You may also consider stress testing your graphic card using OCCT (including vRam). Regards

The computer's a year old running XP and my incredibly card slow. mode issue? Driver Safe issue? Video boyfriend and I have no idea what's wrong with it it's his I'd put in hardware support but I don't know which piece of hardware may be corrupted exploding as we speak or what It began last night He's done this before -- he has two monitors one meant for a TV I believe and another old computer screen Normally it runs on the TV one because it's bigger He switched to the older one to show me how he can adjust the settings so that it's all vertical That was great and dandy and we didn't expect any issues He's done it before and it really isn't doing much to the computer Later after midnight he goes to switch everything back to normal First the computer acts like Driver issue? Video card issue? Safe mode incredibly slow. the monitor is there but that it can't do anything -- it tries to go into sleep mode or something Then I suggest he unplug Driver issue? Video card issue? Safe mode incredibly slow. shut down plug things back in normally and power back up This appears to work I was a bit happy then until we got to the XP loading screen It's going and then after it flashes then goes black Nothing comes up nothing does anything And so the three hour saga of last night begins We restart we spam F we get into safe mode he disables Nvidia but can't open the application Nor does his mouse function in safe mode I know some don't but it really doesn't help the situation I've used my laptop to bring up shortcut keys and we're functioning through everything that way He restarts after disabling Nvidia and nothing's different Spam F repeat We go to the device manager and look for any signs of danger He re-enables Nvidia restarts nothing different He tries looking for updates and he tells me that Nvidia doesn't need any nor does anything else in the device manager so far as he can see I'd written down the driver for Nvidia prepared to find any updates online and download it and somehow get it to him since even in safe mode with networking it didn't seem like he could get to the internet He's already started trying things again today but I think he wants to give up and just throw it out which we really can't do This makes no sense either so I refuse to give up until I find out what the heck is wrong with it in the first place Furthermore in safe mode everything is running incredibly slowly I don't know if this is normal since I've never had to do this but I'm talking - minutes between each command sometimes We also could not enter VGA mode for some reason nor are we able to normally boot He went to F and possibly F as well and couldn't find anything there that looked helpful but I just don't know what's going on or where to look because nothing appears to be wrong besides the way that it's acting Please and thank you so much I'll greatly appreciate anyone who can quickly assist and stick around for a little while for our answers as they'll take some time with the speed of the computer right now The Nvidia driver is Nvidia GeForce SE nForce I'm on my laptop if that wasn't clear which is a separate computer

The issue is simply everytime I've used Etrust virus scan when in Internet explorer (have to be) I minimize it, and when I bring it to normal it's fine, but minimize it and bring it up when it's in the Java folder it freezes, should I do an individual scan on the Java folder to see if it has viruses or just make it a special do not scan folder and un-click it when scanning?

A:Solved: Etrust Viruscan does not like Java Program folder: not virus issue but scanning issue

Hi, Often the applets stored from Java usage will trigger either a detection or an issue as you are seeing from antivirus scanners.

I'd suggest clearing the Java cache: see the attached screenshot, your version may be slightly different but you should be able to see where to look, and what to do. (The attached pic is from a slightly older version of the Java...the steps below are up to date, though)

Control Panel> (Switch to Classic View)> open Java

Find the Settings tab/button, and open that...then find the Delete Files button and click that.
It's just deleting the temporary files left from Java applet usage.

Then, after clearing the cache, run your scan again and see if it works correctly.

It is different. It has lots of code on it. Probably the url of what it's trying to access. This would normally happen in the background, and the user shouldn't see it.
I googled part of the message, and it mentioned something about a user agent...whatever that is. I just want the message(s) to stop popping up! Any help is much appreciated.
Here is a screenshot of what I'm seeing:

A:Firefox Issue - Constant popup - User agent issue?

User agent info is identifying information about your browser, system, and region plus a unique identifier that your browser sends to websites it visits. I would try resetting your browser if you don't have settings you are worried about losing by doing that.

I upgraded to Windows 10 today. I have two issues.

1. I play a game called "Starcraft II" and I have a problem with the game minimizing and maximizing sometimes very slowly, every 5th attempt or so. During this time it takes up to 40 seconds for the game to go through with the maximizing/minimizing process, and ending the task with task manager is not possible.

I have tried messing with MSConfig and reinstalling the game. No luck. Any suggestions?

2. I have an old HDD on my PC installed with windows 7, and on my windows 7 SSD installation I could simply search for shortcuts I placed from my HDD into my SSD. This is no longer possible. Any advice?

Thank you!

I waited until the last minute (literally) to upgrade from Win7 to Win10. During the wait I kept up with all the Win10 HP blogs. My HP all-in-1 printer works great thanks to the support blog but I am still having difficulty getting my BOSE speakers to sound as they did with Beats on Win 7. I have downloaded and installed the compatible IDT HiDef Audio CODEC driver but the sound quality is still poor. The "Speakers/Headphones" property sound setting is "24-bit, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality)". I would like to adjust the treble/bass settings as before - I want my BOSE speakers back!! Any recent recommendations?Thanx!!

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

A:Odd memory issue? HD space issue? Also, can't update GPU driver (GW2 crashing)

Unfortunately, though I thought I did, I have no images of the odd cyan/yellow graphics glitch, and I have no way of getting one (google didn't turn up any that looked the same as mine, granted some were similar).
Edit - I also noticed after re-enabling page memory on my primary drive after freeing up some space, that in the error logs, the amount of paged memory in use is for some reason higher. I can't imagine why this is, but maybe I don't understand the process.

I am trying (in vain) to issue a net start command "net start - "C:\Program Files (x86)\uTorrent\utorrent.exe", on the command line. The error message is "the filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect". I believe the 3 details are correct, as i am looking at the utorrent.exe file right now, which is sitting on that path. The only issue i can think of is that, since i am running win7 64bit, there nay be some sort of problem with the "(x86)" bit in the path name.

Any ideas?



A:net start command line issue - 64bit issue?

Hello Andy,

If you were just wanting to run the utorrent.exe file, then you would just need to use either command below to do so instead. The net start command is for services instead.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\uTorrent\utorrent.exe"

Hello I bought a Windows Asus laptop about a month back and have been running into a few issues I actually have tried asking the Microsoft tech forums directly but issue issue + Full Sleep Screen Video with a Sleep issue + Full Screen Video issue lack of responses I feel I need to ask elsewhere There are two issues I have here that I'm trying to fix Neither are laptop breaking at the moment but I'd like to fix them for the purpose of fluidity etc First off I'd like to explain that I managed to find a work around for my touchscreen not working after the laptop went into sleep mode only for a different issue to crop up I recently noticed that the time my laptop was taking to wake up from sleep wasn't actually it waking up from sleep It restarted the laptop The laptop goes to sleep just fine but upon opening the lid OR if I leave the lid open and hit a button to wake it up the laptop takes about - sec to quot wake up quot but in reality it appears to reboot the laptop Secondly I've encountered this issue from the very moment I downloaded Mozilla Firefox The video on fullscreen mode for any site and any streaming agent Update all addons drivers etc use to stutter I worked out a fix where now it lags or stutters now and then I'm not sure how to remove the issue altogether I've tried safe mode and fresh installations of firefox but the issues remain As of now the hardware acceleration is disabled alongside opengl This issue does not present itself on microsoft Edge on the same sites videos Same resolution for the video But as a long standing user of Firefox and someone who loves my scriptblocker switching to Edge doesn't seem possible I've tried

A:Sleep issue + Full Screen Video issue

For your first issue:

The ASUS drivers have been known to cause problems with the Windows 10 sleep process for some systems. One of the ASUS system drivers is an Intel Management Engine driver and this has been known to cause the behaviour you describe. You can temporarily disable it to see if it makes a difference. If it does you can try uninstalling it and allowing W10 to replace it with the generic driver from the Microsoft driver database.

I can't provide any guidance for your second issue, I use Edge and am growing to like it.

A:HP Multi Print/Scan Issue Re Install Issue?

Hello Fool Monkey. Welcome to the Forum.

You don't say what W7 OS you're using (Home, Premium, etc.) or whether the new printer drivers are from CD/DVD or download, or whether this is a USB connection. That info could be important.

You might want to perform a System Restore to a date before you tried upgrading the drivers and deleting files and keys. This is a general rule in making any system changes with me. I always create a restore point before any system change. If I don't like the results I go back, then try something else. The reason for this is that you don't "dig yourself a hole", where one bad change compounds with another, etc etc, and you've got a mess.

It is not unusual for a driver package to not install a "new" scanner driver. That is simply because the one you have on your system is the same as the "new" one. The package will update the (newer) printer driver and that's all. If you try to force older or incorrect drivers into the system you could trigger those errors.

Try this:
Find where the driver files are located on the DVD or download (if it is a zip file) and note the path.
Go to Devices & Printers > Add a Printer (top bar)
Choose "Add a Local Printer" (is it a local printer?) > Next
Use an existing Port > Choose USB001 from the drop down box (is it connected by USB?) > Next
In the Install The Printer Driver Window, navigate to the folder where the printer drivers are stored > Next
Plug in the printer and test.
Let's see if that works.

A:Dell Inspiron modular bay issue/boot-up issue

You should first try a second hard drive with a full install. That usually fixes the problems with the 1100, 1150, 5100m, 5150, and 5160 which all seem to have the same problems.
Remember that this optical drive is fragile, and has a history of failure. New models are available with DVD RW that are quite reliable, on eBay. They range from $72 to $85 to $89 to $95. If you are good with tools, you can get the generic one, then revise the hardware to make everything fit just fine.

Hello forum So I just updated my Nvidea graphics card and for some reason after restarting my laptop in order to install these files to the system the quot System Thread Exception Not Handled quot BSOD card Issue? Graphics issue/Avast Blue screen error flashed on my screen and later redirected me to an automatic repair screen which attempted to fix this issue I ended up restarting the laptop on safe mode uninstall my Nvidea graphics card and completely reinstall it from scratch But for some BSOD Graphics card issue/Avast Issue? reason it keeps giving me the same error each time I restart my laptop After some research online apparently there's an issue with Avast and Nvidea You will find attached the SF Diagnostic Tool grab all option files needed to view the issue at hand Any help would greatly be helpful Many are saying that I've not been installing the corrent drivers but that's not possible as it's directly from the MSI website GT NE linked to the official Nvidea website saying that the driver includes my graphics card M While other people are saying that maybe Avast is causing some issue towards the graphics card I have the Avast Professional Antivirus Laptop Specs Windows MSI Dragon Edition GT NE Intel Core i - QM CPU GHz bit NVIDIA GeForce GTX M Intel HD Graphics Any help would greatly be appreciated I'm currently running my laptop without the nVidea Graphics Card Drivers and seems to be fine so far Regards Ic d

This appears to be a duplicate topic
The other one is here: BSOD System Thread Exception Not Handled Error/Nvidea Card

I responded to the other one.
You may want to PM a staff member to have this one deleted (to prevent confusion)
