802.11n USB Wireless USB Networking Adapter Keeps Dropping Connection?
Nov 4, 2012
I have an 802.11n USB Wireless Lan card on a desktop with Windows 7 home premium 64-bit. Whenever im searching the web, say i go to NFL.Com to check my fantasy squad, the pages wont load, and i see my connection has been dropped, now every time i click on the signal bars on the bottom right hand corner, it says no connection, but after about 2 seconds of clicking on it, it connects again. So in order for me to get my connection back, i have to click on my signal bar to get it back, which is ridiculous. I have other computers in my home, all of which do not have this problem, so its definitely something in my desktop, i also have about 3 wireless adapters i've tested it on, all of which do the exact same thing on my desktop only. I've also went to power management under configuration for my USB adapter and turned off the ''Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power'', it still drops my connection every 3-5 minutes.
I'm using the WUSB54GSC on a IBM Desktop computer, not old, but not new by any means. We have wireless internet through Comcast, and my room is on the second floor. The router is on the first floor, but it's almost just underneath my room. The internet seems to connect completely fine, but it will disconnect at some things. For example, when I tried to go to mapquest, it was like it was flooding, and it dropped the internet connection. I also play games online, and when I play the actual game itself (GTAA/Online) it plays just fine, no lag, nothing like that, but when I try to connect to Teamspeak, when it's loading the channels after it connects, it just drops the connection..
I have a Linksys WUSB54G version 4 adapter.My computer is running Windows XP, Service Pack 3, which is automatically updated at all times. I've been using the adapter for a year with no problems.
Suddenly, it's started loosing the connection to the Linksys router and locking up my computer so only a hard re-boot power-down will work.When it comes back up, some or all of my cookies are lost.
I've run several different security packages but no virus or other issues have been found.I've uninstalled the adapter and reinstalled it.Last time, following something I read on this site, I installed it without the Linksys software, just the drivers.
I have two computers, one is a Dell Dimension 8300 while the other is a Compaq Presario Desktop. Both use Microsoft Windows XP OS 32 bit and are networked using a Microsoft Wireless G-Base Station MN-700 on the Dell and a Wireless G-Adapter on the Compaq. This arrangement worked quite well for some time and recently they stopped communicating with each other. I reset the base station as described in the manual. When I did the same for the Adapter I could not enter the correct Wireless Security Key. I tried copying the key from the Base to the adapter but to no avail. Do I have to uninstall both units from their respective computers and reinstall from the CD provided?
In windows 7 the wireless network tab in the properties of wireless network connection is missing? But I can give the ip address, subnetmask, gateway and DNS etc.,? How can i enable the 'wireless network tab'?
I have a D-Link DIR-655 version B1 Just installed firmware 2.03 Use a cable modem (Comcast) Motorola SURFboard model SB6120 Am trying to use Netgear 85Mbps Wall-Plugged Ethernet Adapter XET1001 to carry signal from the room where the cable modem is to another part of the house where I hope to connect the D-Link.
I recently got a (new) Dell Inspiron 570 desktop. It didn't come with a wireless adapter, so I picked up a (new) TP-Link TL-WN781ND Wireless N PCIe adapter. Easy installation, worked immediately. Connection's not perfect, but I get 3 bars from across a house so it's about what I expected.Unfortunately, every little bit the connection drops. Sometimes it comes back within seconds, sometimes it lasts for several minutes; sometimes I won't notice it happening for hours, sometimes it drops every few seconds. There are two other computers on the network that don't suffer connection issues, and I've been able to test with my iPod that it's still connected at the same moment as my Dell is not.I tried updating the driver automatically, which oddly enough installed the driver for an Atheros AR9285, a different wireless adapter; and although everything seemed to still be working I gave it long enough to make sure the problem was still there and downloaded the correct driver from TP-Link's site, which didn't fix it either.
My internet has never had many issues, but since 2 days ago it has been frequently dropping the connection every so often (maybe every 10-30 minutes). The speed jumps all over the place, reaching as high as 2mb/s and then dumping down to 0.14 kbps while going up and down. I am not sure what the issue is. I am running wirelessly on my desktop using a D-Link DWA-130 adapter.
But i can still navigate around on a computer. So i have a gateway laptop, and a cisco router in my parent bedroom. They have computer's connected into it with a wired connection. My laptop is a wireless one. The connection will drop roughly 10 times a day. And the odd thing is , to get the connection to show back up on my wireless connection lists, i need to restart the router or it doesnt show. Its not a problem with signal strength, and obviously no problem with the router as my parent's stay connected during this. I called my ISP, they told me to call gateway. I did , and after that, i will never in my life associate with anything gateway ever, ever , again. I'm sure its a setting or software issue
I have a wireless Motorola modem that is hardwired to a computer that is usually off. This modem services 4 other computers in the house wirelessly and all experience the same frequent connection drops regardless of connection quality. I've had problems with this modem for as long as I can remember but it never bothered me because the problems were too far and few between; now, the connection has progressed to dropping within minutes of use.When the connection is dropped I cannot access my modem (plugging the ip address 192.168.0.1 into my web browser)The connection stays acceptable for a while after resetting but always reverts back to being a piece of crap. The connection drops most frequently when under heavy load i.e. steam downloading a game at my connection's full capacity, just only more frequently. The connection will still drop within the hour if I'm downloading anything or not.
I've tried rerouting the wireless modem into another wireless router before but it caused me new problems.Before this all started within last week, I contracted some spyware that redirected Google search links and also killed my connection frequently along with terrible slowdowns. I gave up trying to clean the system and reformatted but my internet connection still drops and it's now affecting all computers that connect to this modem. [code]
This has been a problem 2 months ago and it is still not fixed My ping sometimes goes up to 500 and disconnects, usually every 10 minutes i disconnect from TeamSpeak3. My connection is 3 bars and drops down to 2 which is when it disconnects . My modem is only 4 meters away from me and another laptop is 2 meters away from it but it has perfect connection. My sister upstairs also has perfect connection. Im using Realtek 8185 extensible 802.11 b/g. Sometimes its worse and sometimes better but only by alittle bit
As I am more of a hardware guy and pretty clueless about networking, I thought I'd come here because I am pretty frustrated right now.So yesterday, I got an Amped Wireless SR10000 Repeater for Christmas. I had it set up and working with no problems. However, this message did pop up when it was finished:
I ignored it (stupid me) because I didn't know what to do. The connection worked fine for a while, but now a day later, the connection keeps dropping. I would assume it is because of this.I did a bit of research and it seems like setting up a static IP will fix the problem, but I have no idea how to do that.
I have an airlink ar525w wireless router. My wireless connection drops out every few hours and I have to reset my router to get it up again. My wired connections work perfectly. Also, I am able to see my network as available and with full signal strength from windows but connecting to it doesn't do anything (just says connecting forever). This is not isolated to one computer. I have tried it with laptops, desktops and smartphones. The strange thing is that it works perfectly (hasn't dropped a connection for one month) if I have wireless security disabled.I have tried different types of security (WEP, WPA, WPA2), different channels (all 11 channels), assigning static IP addresses to all my devices and turning off the DHCP server on my router. But none of these settings fix the problem. would be willing to buy another router, but I was reading through reviews on newegg and every router that I saw reviews for has a few people experiencing the same problem that I described here. Is this a widespread problem that I have to live with or does this have something to do with my router specifically?
If i run an open wireless network without encryption, the laptop is always picks up the connection. However when I got to WPA encryption, the laptop works fine until I leave it in standby or shut it down. In order to connect it after leaving in on standby or a shutdown I need to reset my Linksys router.I have another laptop that never seems to drop the wireless connection, so I don't think it's a router issue, but something on the other laptop.
I can not hold a wireless connection because it keeps telling me that there is a problem with the gateway, i just spoke to toshiba support who have said my wireless has been corrupted internally by viruses.
I purchased a New Netgear N150 wireless Router 2 weeks ago and now my internet on my laptop keeps going down.. As Far as I can tell When it drops its still connected to the Wireless network.. it just says local only and Gives me the limited connectivity warning.. When I diagnose the issue it tells me a number of different things and it tells me to renew the IP settings and sometimes that will work and sometimes not.. The laptop is a HP Pavilion DV9000 with all original hardware.
My wireless connection keeps dropping. It tells me the default gateway is not available.I have tried to check and do the things told here first but not working have tried to do the driver update . I have a realtek driver, there is no update available for it.I have a 25 mbit connection i barely get 1 mbit.Extremely slow The laptop is running windows 7 .Also i already did all the TCP/IP stack repair options like winsock reset etc.The antivirus i am running is ESET Nod32 version 4 i think .I have attached a xirrus wifi inspector photo if u want to look at it.[CODE]
To start off, the wireless router we have is a D-LINK 615 Wireless N 300 Router.We've had this router for a couple of months now and only recently has it been giving us grief. When we first got it (it was actually a friend's who had lent it to me but have been using ever since), it was working like a charm. No dropped connections, etc.However, as of a few weeks ago, we've began to notice that the connection has been dropping constantly. It started one a day around the same time (in the evening) and ever since has happened multiple times per day.The connection will either drop all together (lights still going on flashing) or there will be a limited connection (as stated in Windows) and I can't do anything. This happens for my laptop as well as my PS3. My desktop is hard-wired so there's never a connection issue there. Power cycling the router usually fixes the issue but again, this is constant and keeps disconnecting for some reason and having to power cycle every day is annoying.All the lights are always flashing like normal but the connection just drops off.
I'm having problems with my wireless connection constantly dropping and have set the optimal settings from the sticky's in the forums, nothing has changed this problem.
-Have changed to a empty Channel. (8) - TX and RX packets dropping, also some errors. -All new CAT 6 cabling between router and modem. -Have tried all different wireless modes. -Wired clients are working perfectly. -Changed the DNS servers.
Sometimes the connection will be lost altogether and when I try to reconnect it says "unable to connect" and I have to wait 5/10 mins until the laptop connects it's self again automatically.Other times, the signal strength shows as full (in the bottom right) but a yellow triangle appears with an exclamation mark in it and the status reads "Currently connected to Talk Talk 388380 No internet access". It stays like this for several minutes, then goes back to normal!?I've recently had fiber optic broadband installed, but I don't think this is the issue as it was happening before.Even when the internet is working, the connection speed is really poor; YouTube videos constantly buffer, even on low quality.I've plugged in the ethernet cable today and it appears to work fine, so I think it must be an issue with the laptop[CODE]
My D-link wireless router (WBR-1310) keeps dropping my internet/email connection. The little green lights are all flashing intermittently except of the one on the far left which stays on. I will have a connection for a little while/few minutes and then it drops.
I have a DLink D604T wireless modem. It has been working fine for the past 5 years but today the connection to my netbook computer kept dropping out.I can fix it temporarily by going into Network Connections, right clicking the modem, selecting wireless networks, clicking the modem, going to properties and retyping the network password. I then have to set the firewal to advanced connection settings and typing in my family network password, and changing the Windows firewall settings from On to Off.However, the connection drops out again after just a few minutes. If I then turn the firewall back on, it comes back on again for 5 minutes, but then drops out again. Then I have to repeat the whole process.
I have a dell 1558 studio with windows seven. my router is a linskys. My laptop will connect to the internet and stay connected but every few minutes or so it will drop out of connection and then automatically reconnect.
I have a Cisco Linksys WRT120N wireless router in one bedroom. On another bedroom which is hardly 15 feet away, I have set up my laptop to connect to it via a Cisco Linksys AE1000 wireless USB adapter. There are two thick walls between one bedroom and another.
Neverthess I find AE1000 dropping connection all the time. There are times I unplug the laptop and take into the same room as my router but it still doesn't connect. The wireless strength constantly varies from Very Good to Excellent but no matter what I try AE1000 never connects to it. If I restart my laptop, sometimes it does connect.
All in all its very frustrating that two Cisco products can't communicate effectively with each other.
P.S: I have both my ASUS tablet and my verizon droid both connecting to the wireless router from the same room as my laptop without any issues.
I replaced a WRT54G2 V1 with a E1550 earlier this week. This router connects a sub-net of our office to the main network of our office. When the WRT54 was in place everything worked without a hitch, but the E1550 keeps dropping us from a server we have on the main network. The WRT54 is back in play until I can figure this out.

I have a T L-WR1043ND v1.9 with the latest factory firmware that I recently purchased. Ran fine for a couple of weeks. Now my WAN connection seems to be dropping. I get an IP and DNS from the ISP but I cannot ping anything (google etc...) past the router. I have to hit the detect button or release and renew the IP in order to gain access. Then after a few hours or a day the issue reoccurs.
I purchased an E2500 router today and it worked perfectly for about 4 hours. Now it drops my internet connection constantly. I can connect and load maybe 2 pages before that little yellow triangle of doom appears. Then after 2 or 3 minutes I am good and can reconnect. This cycle just keeps happening.
Every single one of the WAP4410N units at every single client where they've been deployed is dropping the network connection.
After an undetermined amount of time, wireless devices connected to a WAP4410N begin to lose their network connection, but each will maintain their wireless connection to the WAP. The network connection will not be restored until the WAP is rebooted. It appears the affected devices are unable to obtain/renew their IP address at the time when they lose network connection. We reduced the DHCP lease time to 2 hours, and we had no problems for 2 weeks. We then changed the DHCP lease backup to 3 days and the problem returned.
This happens with one or two SSIDs in use, with or without VLANs, always in bridge mode.
Cisco support advised us that this is a known problem that was supposed to be corrected in the 220.127.116.11 firmware revision. They have found that it does work in approximately 90% of the updates from 18.104.22.168, but is still not working for some customers. It was supposed to be fixed with firmware version 22.214.171.124 (which we've tried) but no luck.
Besides the obvious "short DHCP lease" workaround, any better ideas? Is the WAP4410N a lemon?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 which was purchase in 2008. I recently installed a new battery, the old one was 11.1v but the new one is 10.8v. When using the new battery the wireless internet connection keeps dropping, however this does not happen when using the old battery. (This is the only thing that has changed on this laptop)
Is there anything I can do to stop this happening or do I just need to return the battery?
