Centrino Advanced-N 6205 / Use Intel Wi-Fi Hotspot Feature To Connect Xbox 360 Slim?
Feb 14, 2013
I've got a Centrino Advanced-N 6205 for Desktop wireless card and I'm trying to use the Intel My WiFi hotspot feature to connect my Xbox 360 Slim. The SSID shows up in the Xbox's networking settings, but after I enter the WPA passkey it fails to connect.
I have a Lenovo T420 with a Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 wireless network card that causes me some headache. It randomly gets disconnected from my router (Zyxel P-2601HN-F1) and home network, works fine though if i using cable. Right after it gets disconnected it reconnects and works fine until it gets disconnected again. I have an HP laptop connected at the same time and no problems there.It works fine in the network in our office (work laptop). I tried our IT dept but they were clueless and told me I had to figure it out by myself, as it works in the office..
I just purchased a used Latitude E5420. It looked like the seller did a fresh reinstall of Windows just before selling it to me. The non-internet applications are working fine, but it's not connecting to my home wireless router. I have a Buffalo WHR G-125. I tried pretty much every type of security type, but nothing worked, so I eventually disabled security and set up MAC filtering, after which I put in the MAC address for the laptop. That still didn't solve the problem.
It does connect to my neighbor's unsecured linksys network. Both the neighbor's network and mine are 802.11g
I went to Intel's website and installed the latest drivers for the network card, but that didn't work. I'm using the latest firmware on the router already.
I have centrino N 6205 on my new Precision M6700...
Under both win 7 x64 (preinstalled dell) and 8 x64 on another hdd, there's no chance to have wifi working: I mean it does not work as normal wifi to connect to internet and it does not work not even a hotspot to let me connect for example my smarthphone to internet using wifi and a shared cable connection.The card seems to work, since I run a live fedora 18 distro linux from dvd and the wifi was able to connect pc to internet in less than one minute...
(of course I tried dell suggested drivers from download area, last updated intel drivers from intel website, etc etc...)...The wifi seemes to be correctly recognized in the pc but I get errors when I try to connect to router (I tried more than one routers that correctly work).
My system: D3ll Precision M6700| i7-3740QM| 32Gb 1866 mhz (4x8Gb)| 17.3" FHD IPS RGBLED 1920x1080| 8X DVD| K3000M| win8 x64 on Samsung 830 256gb| WD Black 500Gb 7200 rpm| 9 cells 97W| WIFI+BT Centrino N 6205 + Dell 380| QWERTY backlighted| psu 240w| warranty 3yr next business day|
I have just fitted a centrino 6200 half mini card in an attempt to improve wireless conectivity and more so range
I assume that it would come up as new hardware found and then run the driver to get it to work. When fitted it doesnt appear in device manager and when trying to run driver the driver just runs then stops
I have a new laptop, Inspiron 15R 5520, which comes with Intel Centrino Advanced-N 2230 network card. It can only detect my wireless-G netowrk at home, but not wireless-N. I have another computer that can connect to my wireless-N, so network is working fine. I have updated the driver to the greatess and latest.
I'm having some connection problems with my new laptop (Dell XPS 14z).When I'm close to my router (D-Link DIR 635), the connection works just fine.When I'm a bit further from my router, I get a poor connection and a slow speed. I've tested 2 other laptops at the same spot, both of which have no problem with the connection.
I have an XPS L502x laptop with an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless card with the latest driver 188.8.131.52. For the past couple of weeks the strength of the signal as measured by the Intel proset tools goes from excellent to poor in the space of 60 seconds, back and forth. It seems to do this on all channels from 1 to 13. It definitely is affecting Internet performance. I have the security set at WPA-Personal in an attempt to try and stabilise the network. I have also been using iSSIDer to try and find the best channel since there are about 10 other wireless networks from other houses around me. I have a D-Link 645 router which is admittedly about 10 metres and 2 or 3 walls away. However, until a fortnight ago, the network was dead stable showing a strong signal (4 or 5 bars (-50). Now it is all over the place. Could it be a damaged card?
I have a problem with my laptop , i had an old intel centrino advanced-n 6200 and this was not working anymore.I manged to buy a intel centrino advanced-n 6235 instead of 6200 as i could not find it.But when i installed it and installed the drivers the pc is telling me that "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
what other cards are compatible with XPS 13 Ultrabook? Like so many people, I have been having a problem with my wifi when the computer is used a little far from the router, and thinking about buying a new wifi card for a replacement (which is silly, and I shouldn't have to do, given my computer is brand-new and cost more than £1000, I know... but I don't seem to have much choice). I've tried everything that has been suggested in the Dell forums, and elsewhere, including those on the Intel site. But nothing has improved my connection even a bit.I have Windows 8 (64-bit). And it currently has an 'Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235' wifi card that came with it.
I have a Dell E1705 running windows 7 64 bit. I am attempting to upgrade my internal wireless adapter to the Intel Advanced N 6235 card.After installing the new wireless card and loading the latest drivers from Intel, the card is not working correctly. The problem is that my computer shows "no connections available". Device Manager says the card is installed properly and that it is working properly however there are no wireless connections for me to connect to including my own.
We're just bought a Netgear WNR2000V3 router and everything is working great, except for our XBox Slim......We can't connect very often and the only way I can get a connection is by disabling all other wireless connections. (Wii, IPod Touch, IMac and Acer Aspire Laptop) My main computer is the IMac.
As a temp work around I have two SSID now, one for everything else running WPA2 and one for xbox running WPA. The xbox seems to not like the router on WPA2 and though this would make one think, oh its your xbox, thats not always the case with devices. Some just may happen to want to use a feature the device doesn't support correctly and other devices are able to work around it while ones not so I cant for sure blame on xbox.
Dell 8600 centrino intel pro wireless lan 2100 won't connect to netgear n150 wnr1000. Running 802.11b band it sees wireless network but won't connect. I have 2 other computers connected to network so it works.... I don't know if Netgear n150 is compatible with 802.11b band...
I have an HP laptop running Windows XP almost five years old which contains an Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG network device. It connects fine with my router WiFi running off DSL. I recently bought an iPhone 4 and set it up as a personal hotspot. I've been able to connect a friend's Macbook to it. But even though my HP laptop sees the iPhone network, when I try to connect to it I get "Unable to connect to this network. It may be out of range." I've downloaded the current update for the wireless device.
We are ordering new COWs (Computer On Wheels) for the hospital and they will be using an Intel 6205 Wireless Chip which is a/b/g/n 2x2. The two new floors these devices will be going on will be our first internal hospital entry into 802.11n which I force the clients to run in the 5ghz range for N. Previous to this, all of my cows are G clients and use a 2.2dbi rubber duck for 2.4ghz.
I will be using 1142 AP's, if not 3502 and no I have not performed a survey yet as the floor is still in early construction, but equipment is required to be ordered now. I can tell you that I will be surveying for a voice grade. I suppose my confusion comes from what is the best antenna (obvious open ended question) for this card, being it has two connectors for the 2x2. Again, typically I would use a 2.2 dbi rubber duck for either 2 GHz or dual band 2/5 GHz. Is dual rubber ducks at 6inch spacing (half wavelength met on 2.4 GHz fall back) suffecient or are there other factors involved with the N.
is it possible to setup 3 x xbox 360's in a home network, 1 is mine, connected to live, the other 2 are for the kids but i just want to setup local network gaming with the kids but also so they cannot connect to live account as they still young. i'm looking to run game on mine and stream / share a multiplayer game with the kids but restrict their internet access?
I've been using the Dir-655 for 2 or 3 years with my old Xbox 360 and an external G wireless adapter. Everything was working perfectly until I got the dreaded Red Rings Of Death the other day. I replaced the Xbox with a new Slim version with built in N capable network adapter.
After more than 10 hours of trying a variety of "fixes" I found from MS and in this forum, I am still at square 1.
Hardware Version : A3 Firmware Version : 1.32NA (this is listed as Live compatible by Microsoft) 802.11 Mode : Tried N only, G only and mixed 802.11n and 802.11g Enable Auto Channel Scan : Checked Transmission Rate : Best (automatic) Channel Width : Auto 20/40 Visibility Status : Visible Security Mode : WPA-Personal Also tried WEP WPA Mode : Auto (WPA or WPA2) Also tried WEP Cipher Type : TKOP and AES
I tried assigning an IP manually from the Xbox. But, no matter what I do, the router will not accept it. It is especially frustrating that the Xbox is visible to the unit. It simply will not assign an IP to it under any circumstance.
If you read the sales hype promoting the Dir-655, you will see a lot of nonsense about it being great for gaming. Given that, you'd think a simple solution would have been found and posted for this issue by now. Surely, end users shouldn't be trying 100 different possible "fixes", none of which work, at this late stage of the firmware upgrades. If I sound a tad fed up, it's because I am. After the expense of the new Xbox, it appears I now have to junk my router too.
Here is the status screen taken when it was in mixed mode. Changing it to 'G Only' didn't make any difference:

My friend has had constant issues with his wireless network using his dated Linksys router. So he finally decided to upgrade to the Netgear N750. It's a dual band router that simultaneously broadcasts 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. He setup the 2.4 band for the laptops and mobile devices to access, and the 5 band just for gaming on his xbox 360 Slim. He immediately ran into a problem. The 360 slim's built-in wireless card only picks up 2.4 GHz frequencies. To remedy this, he purchased Microsoft's xbox 360 wireless-N adapter as it can pick up 5 GHz frequencies. However, there was no change after plugging the adapter into the 360 slim. His HP laptop can see the 5 GHz network just fine, so we know it's being broadcast. Could it be the xbox is out of range of the 5 GHz band? Is the adapter not functioning properly with the 360 slim?
I am looking to get a wireless card to share my wired desktop connection for my tablet, laptop and phone and xbox 360 slim. A wireless router would seem the obvious solution but the accommodation I have at uni charges £15.00 just to allow a router to be used.
I have just got my new xps 17 and opted for the 6230, It only gets to 20 meg download speed, I can insert my old usb N adaptor and get the full 50 meg. I was on the phone for 2 hours last night with Dell, they had remote access and tried lots of things to improve the problem.
Finally once they saw that my old usb adaptor was much faster, they said a technician would call me back today betweek 12pm and 1pm or 4.30pm.
I just received a new xps 15 yesterday. After some long hours of research, I found that I need a different wireless adapter to pick up my routers 5.0GHz signal. The wireless adapter in my XPS right now is an Intel Cetrino Wireless-N 1000. I was wondering if I ordered an Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300, if it would be compatible with my new laptop, and if so, the ease of switching the two adapters.
I have just taken delivery of a new Inspiron N5110 with an Intel Centrino N-1030 wifi card. I also have two dual band routers (LInksys WRT600N) in different locations in the house.
My problem is that the laptop is detecting my routers Wireless-G signals but NOT the Wireless-N signals. I have checked to ensure that the N-1030 card has 802.11n Mode set to Enabled and have also tried both setting under "802.11n Channel Width for band 2.4" (i.e. Auto and 20 MHz Only) with no success.
My routers are configured with the Wireless-G signal only on 2.4 GHz and Wireless-N only on 5 GHz. I found this to be the best setting to avoid interference from neighbors wifi and cordless phones and have been happily using Wireless-N with my other Dell laptop with no problems (XPS M1530 with Intel 4965agn wireless card).Does the N-1030 card not work with 5 GHz Wireless-N?
I have an ASUS u56e laptop running Win7 Pro that I bought in Aug 2011. Unfortunately my problems started when I was working in East Timor and could not take it anywhere except the IT department where I worked. It is true that for a while I was using the LAN at work and also at my hotel where numerous ISPs were used at various points in time.
I have progressively lost almost total use of the wireless capacity of the machine and this is regardless of where I am using the computer (country, state, public or private networks). Very rarely will I have access and then not for long. When it is not working I will get a message saying that a network adapter cannot be found.
I have updated the driver software and experimented with the power settings. I have also uninstalled an ASUS utility that I read might have been a problem. About the only thing that sometimes works is to disable the network adapter, shut down, and then restart the computer. But not for long.
There is WiMax capability that came with the computer, which I bought at Best Buy. Based on IT advice I have made sure that WiMax is off but the wifi button indicates 'on.' When I am having problems though, I cannot see the wifi button.
I am using Windows Firewall and Webroot SecureAnywhere v.8.02.109. At device manager I see for network adapters: Intel(R) Centrino(R) WiMax 6150 and Intel(R)Centrino(R) WirelessN6150. There is also an entry above for a 6150 Function Driver.
I have attached an image of the ipconfig from the ASUS.
I got a new laptop for Christmas that came with the Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 card that supports 802.11N. I am only seeing connection speeds of 1500mbps rather than the 300mbps that he DAP-1522 advertises.I found this on the d-link site but from what read on the Intel site about the card it supports the 40Mhz band. url...
The wireless on my laptop keeps dropping out. When I first got it it was fine, but after a while I started experiencing problems on every wireless network I connected to. Most of the time it would connect, but after around 10 minutes or so, the connection would drop out and the wireless card has to be "reset" so I can connect again. Otherwise I have a little yellow triangle over my network signal strength bars. I've updated to the latest drivers (184.108.40.206) but it was no luck.
This happens with every wireless network and I know it's not the network because my old Vostro 1500 is running just dandy on all of them.
Just bought and Alienware m17x, which has the Intel Centrino N2230 wireless card. The N2230 states that it is WIDI enabled but my computer shows nothing regarding wireless display anywhere in the search field. Don't know if there's compatibility issues with other components of my computer. If so the list of specs is as follows: CPU- 3rd gen Intel corei7 3630QM. GPU- 2GB GDDR5 NVidia GeForce GTX 660M. RAM- 16 GB Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz. Wireless Card- Intel 2230 Wireless-N
i have an Asus u56e that I recently bought a couple of moths ago. It has been a great computer until today when my wireless randomly disappeared for no reason. The wireless adapter has been disabled for no reason, and when I try to re-enable it, I can't seem to find it.
