Preferred Solution: Wifi problem

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.)

A: Wifi problem

Hey RenRoo.Have you tried a another browser? Does the wired connection to the router work? If yes, I would go into Device Manager, and click the + sign next to Network Adapters.Right click on the wireless adapter and select uninstall.Exit, reboot the system, allow the system to "find" the wireless adapter, then check and see if it will connect. If you still have the same problem, connect via your phone and in Device Manager, try to update the driver.

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

Hi All,

Win8:
I have two wifi APs in the home and I have it all set up so that one is the Internet by cell phone tether and the other is the cabled network via the router wifi.

Works just fine - except.

On wifi 1, Internet I have it set for "Connect automatically" which at boot up it does.

On wifi 2, Network I also have it set for "Connect automatically" which at boot up it does NOT do. I have to go in and connect manually even though the "Connect automatically" is checked.

It seems win8 sees "Connect automatically"and does it but then stops checking other connections. Probably a "feature."

Is there some way to force both "Connect automatically" to happen?

Thanks

A:Wifi Auto-Connect to two-wifi APs, problem

There is a group policy setting for this, but even if both are connected you will only be using one of those connections at a time.

I am running build 11102, but it happened in earlier builds too.

When I boot or reboot my laptop, the wireless adapter comes up in one of three ways, at random:

- Normal. This is of course no problem.
- With a driver problem: I have to reinstall the driver to get it working.
- As a generic ethernet adapter. In this case, there seems nothing to be done except rebooting, in hope that one of the other two events happen. Windows does not know what kind of adapter it is, so it cannot find a driver. Even when I try to install a driver which I know to be good, it gets refused.

Note that this even happens when the laptop wakes from hibernation.

Anyone any ideas?

TIA,

Bart

I've two PCs in my home, one's a desktop and the other's a laptop. The desktop is connected to broadband through router(LAN) and the laptop is connected by wifi. In the desktop I get more than 200 kbps download speed on a direct download(Using IDM). But I get less than 50 kbps speed in my laptop from the same link using the same browser and download manager.

Also, the connection always say limited in the laptop.(See Attachment)

Note : This problem has been occurring for 2-3 days. In the past, it was as it should be.
I tried to update the driver in my laptop, resetted the router more than ten times. But the result's same.

A:Having problem on WiFi

Bad Wifi driver is most likely why. Without the information on the culprit machine. We can only take potshots in the dark, while blindfolded.

You can post the results of "netsh wlan show all", that you have to run the command from a Command window. Then copy the results and paste on here.

It also helps to know the model & mfg of laptop, your ISP, the mfg & model of the Gateway/Router you are using, how far away you are from the gateway, what speed you are paying for from your ISP (you can use Shaper Probe to post what your actual speeds are. Shaper probe can be downloaded from ShaperProbe)

Wifi speeds will always vary over LAN, unless you know a few tricks to get them at the same throughput.

My problem is that when I try to connect to internet through Wifi it says Limited connection and troubleshooting says that Wifi IP configuration is invalid, but when I use cable the connection is fine. It all happened after I plugged ethernet cable from router to a new PC and if I connected it back to router few days later I got that problem with all devices like phones and laptops. My ISP told me to get a new router, but when I change under IPv4 properties from automatical to following:
IP address: 192.168.1.101
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS: 192.168.1.1
Alternate DNS: 218.248.240.23

with that I get like 1-2Mbit connection which is slow and I'm not sure that it's safe to use.
I have also tried to restart router many times.
Can anyone help me to solve this?

Perfectly good AND safe.
Your symptom sounds like the DHCP reply is not reaching the device. Set it back to AUTO, connect
and then get the config again with ipconfig /all. If you see 169.x.x.x, that's a DHCP failure

Secondly I have installed software twice now but each time I get a message stating that it has not been configured properly and that I may experience problems (you bet!)

Finally I have read in many forums that you must allow a 'shared connection' for application to work.

Hi Perhaps a BIOS update. Then open a command prompt, and as an administrator, type netsh wlan show drivers    which will list the driver in use. As to the connection speed etc then the following will give screenfulls of info, which can be piped into a txt file for scrolling thru with notepad, and it will be called C:\wlanall.txt. It may give a clue. netsh wlan show all >> c:\wlanall.txt

Welcome to Seven Forums,

First off, it is not proper to use all CAPS, just an FYI for your future posts and writing.

Regarding your issue, do you have the latest driver for your Wi-Fi adapter. Also, seems to be that your P2P program is causing an issue in your Windows 7.

Hello,

I'm experiencing difficulty with the wifi on my NC6000 laptop acquiring a network address automatically. The problem started when I deleted a user account I was no longer using. Once that was deleted, the wireless network could no longer connect to the internet, it would only search endlessly before giving me a 'limited or no connectivity' message. It does work fine using an ethernet cable however.

I have managed to get it working again by entering a static IP address, but would like to get it back to being able to allocate the IP address automatically. Any ideas on how I could do this? I have already tried resetting the tcp/ip stack and that didn't work. Help!

A:Wifi problem

Hi dzagen, welcome to TSF.

The HP NC6000 is a nice laptop, I own one too, and use the more up-to-date models (NC6020 and up) at work. We also have the baby 6000's, the NC4010's.

Enough rambling though. Let's consider your wireless problem.

It may be the router not issuing an IP, so first, reboot/power cycle all the hardware devices such as the Router and Modem.

Next, try setting up your network as a Preferred Network in Windows? Here is a guide to save me typing it all out.

Do you have an old device that requires you to use WEP instead of the secure and easier to use WPA-PSK?

Make sure on the router that the wireless mode is not off and that the SSID Broadcast is enabled.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

I have an HP g6-1d60us running Windows 7 home premium. For some reason, the wi-fi button (f12) will not switch from orange to blue and as a result will not connect to my inhome network (Linksys router WRT54G2V1 using AT&T DSL Motorola modem). Was working fine until mid day yesterday. Internet access great when cable is connected directly to the laptop. Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Hey guys, this is my first thread and I don't know if it is in the right place.

I have a problem, I have a laptop and usually when I'm gaming I use Ethernet. But when I wanna just browse the internet on the couch or something my WiFi will not be shown in the list, I know my Driver is working because it will find my neighbours WiFi and the one at my moms house. How can I fix this, my internet still works through Ethernet though. I think the problem has something to do with having WiFi and Ethernet on on the same time, I use to have my Ethernet cable connected and turn WiFi on so that I won't be disconnected from example Skype or something. If anyone knows a good way of solving this problem I will apreciate your help.

Thanks,
Guus W

You need to disconnect the wired ethernet to allow the wifi to make a connection.

I've tried some of the things others have recommended, I tried pinging a website in command prompt (that worked) and of course I tried restarting my computer, unplugging the dongle and plugging it back in,  I've scanned for Malware, and I made sure that my wifi is working by trying to use it on different devices. and im not sure if it is related or not but around the same time I started getting avgui.exe errors when I start up my computer (and if you are wondering how I am posting this i'm using an old computer)

Hi and welcome

I've got a problem with wifi. The connection either is ok, Windows can connect to the network or I am connected but have no internet access. I'm connecting via a router.
I'm having a normal PC (not a laptop), the network works when I'm on XP but it doesn't work on W7.
I've downloaded newest drivers, disabled IPv6, tried static and dynamic DHCP.
I've noticed that when there is a problem with the connection I get a "WPA retey failed" error on the router. I've searched for that and basically the solution was either to use WEP (don't want it), try static IP or different channel (the wifi works on the same channel on 3 XP computers so I don't see that being the case).

Do you have any other ideas? Well... except from "We're sorry but microsoft doesn't support your router, go and buy another one, maybe it'll work then.."

Hi and welcome

Its not the router, its the encryption. win 7 deosnt support either wpa or wep. Someone will know for sure. In the mean time you can find out if it is a connectivity issue or encryption by just trying to connect without any password.

You will need the Security Key for your router (If needed),

Once you have done this move as close as you can to the Router and then follow the Steps in the Attached File

After that choose your network and enter the Key then Surf the Internet

A:Wifi problem

I'm sorry nithin27, but your post is too general to give an accurate answer. I will try to help you though .

Since you can connect at home I'd say there is nothing wrong with drivers etc. It is either working or not, there is nothing between it.

So, the fact that you can't connect at school tells me that you need some sort of autorisation to connect. Like a password/ passkey etc.

You might want to take a look at the configuration of a classmate and see what is different. A visit to logistical support at your school may be helpful to.

Good luck with it!

I suggest looking over the manual for your router, specific instructions for this will be located there.

Do you have a backup to restore from? do you have a win dvd to do a repair install?

Go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search) go too the windows log>application tab.

Look for critical errors (they have red in the left hand column) that refer to wifi. when you find them let us know what the event ID and source codes are.

So, I live out in the boonies, I have a verizon wireless aircard. I hooked up my router through ethernet cable to my computer, and then shared the internet connection to the router, I turned off DHCP on the router and enabled it so that ICS would handle DHCP. It works fine on my xbox, but for some reason on my iPod and iPhone I get distorted web pages/images and data. Not sure how to fix it, i'm pretty sure it's something to do with my realtek lan adapter, I changed my LAN adapter's drivers which seemed to fix the problem yesterday, but then I restarted my computer and now it's happening again, how can I fix this, it's really annoying? Any help is appreciated!

Every time I turn on my new laptop, the WiFi claims there is no Internet Access but there actually is, and I have to go into command prompt and run ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew every time to make it work again. What does this mean? How do I fix it?

A:WiFi problem?

when you first connect to the wifi and it says that there is no internet access, what ip address are you getting? is it 192.168.*.*, or is it 169.254.*.*? when you're having problems with networking, you need to first check if you're getting an expected IP address, then you need to try to ping your gateway, then you should try to ping a DNS server or two, and then you should try an NSLOOKUP on some domain name. each step indicates a leg in the network you're able to negotiate.

On my Windows 8 Laptop, when turned on - either from total power-down or Sleep mode, I always have to go through the 're-connection of my wireless link to my router' procedure, even though I have selected 'Connect Automatically' and the appropriate box is always ticked. I've had a look in the Control Panel to see if there are any further options but was unable to find any.........
The problem does not exist on any of my other PCs (which use Windows XP and Windows 7) which are linked to the same wireless router.
Any suggestions as to why this is happening and how to fix it, would be much appreciated.

Thanks

A:WiFi Problem

goto your advanced power options and make sure windows isnt powering it down to save power. Goto search and type power options its in the settings tab. In your selected power plan select change settings then select advanced options and open "wireless adapter settings" and set them to performence.

Power Plan Settings - Change in Windows 8
you could also goto device manager find your wireless adapter right click and select properties. under the power management tab uncheck the box to let windows turn off this device to save power. If that doesnt work turn it back on again because im not sure if that will stop your wireless getting turned off when in sleep mode

Hey @Ninko85,Welcome to the HP Support Forums! This is a great place to find solutions and help from our community! The following pages are helpful when troubleshooting wireless connectivity issues.Troubleshooting wireless network and Internet (Windows 10)Also, you can look at the power management for your wireless adapter:Disable the Power Off option for the adapter:1. Open Device Manager. (Win Key+R > type devmgmt.msc > OK)2. Expand the Network adapters.3. Right click on the Ethernet/Wireless Adapter and click Properties.4. Click the Power Management tab.5. Remove the check mark beside Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.6. Click OK.7. Test.Forget a Network (Windows 10)Forget Wireless Network Profiles in Windows 10Reset the TCP/IP settings on your PC:1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.2. Right-click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.3. In the window that opens type "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" without quotes, and press enter.4. Restart your PC and test.It may also help to reset the Winsock catalogue:1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.2. Right-click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.3. In the window that opens type "netsh winsock reset" without quotes, and press enter.4. Restart your PC and test.Reinstall the network adapter drivers:1. Download the drivers from here but do not run them yet.2. Go to your start screen/menu and type Device Manager.3. Expand Network adapters.4. Right click on the wireless adapter and choose Uninstall.5. Run the downloaded drivers from step 1.6. Restart your PC and test.Test an ethernet connection:Self-explanatory. Test if the issue persists on a wired connection to rule out the wireless adapter hardware so troubleshooting can be directed towards the right areas.Test another connection:Many people rule out their home network as an issue if another device is working on the same network. Networking is not that simple. Each device interacts differently with your router or modem and it is impossible to rule out settings in that device until the notebook has been tested on another network. Please keep me posted.  You can always say thanks by hitting the Thumbs Up button below!Cheers,TechSurge.

A:problem with wifi

Without addressing the network problem, your CPU core temps are way higher than they should be, if these are idle temps they are way too hot, even under normal loads they should not be getting quite that high. I'd say that your system has been overheating which will cause crashes and all sorts of other problems.

The first thing I would do is to replace the TIM "thermal interface material" under your heatsink for the CPU. Also make sure that CPU's heat sink fan is working. Too much dust around the CPU fan will also make this happen.

A:wifi problem ?

you can try right clicking on the network icon (the windows one) and troubleshoot it. Also can try turning off all network appliances (and unplugging them) for 10 seconds and then reconnect, and troubleshoot again. A computer restart can help. If all of this doesn't work, the problem is more serious

if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information.

post which SSID name is yours, its located in the list, under network "Adapter Name" (1st column)
Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

Am trying to install 7 on a Toshiba A200 Satellite but am having great difficulty in finding the driver for wifi adaptor if indeed it has one, because I shall need the internet connection for activation updates etc etc.

Have scoured just about everywhere for the darn thing and am getting nowhere. Also the machine will require a wifi connection as the new owner does not have a landline broadband option.

Any ideas please.

Hello.Recently I got a new router, which has two networks. One, with a 2,4 Ghz wifi and the other with the 5 Ghz wifi. I read through my laptop's specs and details and it said to have a dual wifi card incorpored, which means it supports the 5 Ghz wifi. My problem is it doesn't recognize the 5Ghz network (the network name doesn't appear when searching for available connections). Is there any issue that may be causing this? My laptop model is HP Envy 15 j108la.

Had exactly the same issue with a Satellite C55-A (PSCG6)‎ laptop, the wireless worked ok, thought but Ethernet had the same issues you described. took quite a bit of research but found the network card was atheros, I believe, tracked down a website and found a driver that workd, the one on the manufactures website did not work.....have you tried searching for the device I.D. ?
select update driver and look at details, you will see a drop down option chose hardware I.D and paste it into a search engine, may help....good luck
