Dell :: Way To Stop N4010 Wireless Card From Randomly Disabling?

Feb 23, 2012

After some research, I noticed I'm having the same problem with my Inspiron N4010's wireless card as mentioned in this post. I purchased this laptop refurbished from the Dell Outlet store over a year ago. 

Yes, I have tried re-installing the drivers, the BIOS is updated, and no I am not pressing that key when the wireless card randomly disables. Normally it will re-enable after a few minutes or if I keep pressing that key it may re-enable. Sometimes it will take a restart for it to re-enable. 

This is a completely random problem too. I am unable to reproduce the problem.

I am just about ready to replace the card and see if that works (the laptop is out of warranty and I'm comfortable inside of a laptop so that is not an issue).

Dell :: 1395 Wlan Card Randomly Disconnect?

Jul 8, 2012

I have a problem with the 1395 wlan mini-card. Windows would connect to my wireless network automatically, without a hitch. Then, I suddenly disconnect from my network for no reason. when I check the wireless manager, I can't find my own network, but I can still see other people's. About a minute after that, I can't detect any network, and I must restart my laptop to fix the problem. All other computer on my network does not experience this problem. The other computer does not even report being disconnected from the wireless network. Turning the bluetooth and wireless card switch off then on again does not solve it, nor does going into device manager and disabling then enabling the wireless card work. The only way is to restart the computer.

I just finished upgrading my OS on the latitude XT  from Vista to windows 7. I formatted the hard drive before installing windows 7. This problem did not occur when I was using Vista, but it has occurred every time I boot up on windows 7. I have installed all the relevant drivers and my router is up to date on the firmware. The wireless network is encrypted using WPA2 AES, and has mac filter on, only allowing listed mac address to connect. It is broadcasting on channel 11.

I have used this computer for more than two years on Vista without this problem occurring, during which time I did several reinstall of Vista. Now, when I install windows 7 on it, this problem all of the sudden starts happening. I think it could be I forgot a driver or something, but I checked and rechecked, and did numerous reinstall of the mini-card driver to no avail.

Network Connections Randomly Disabling

Aug 26, 2011

I currently own a Lenovo Thinkpad x201 Tablet Laptop.The issue is that I randomly lose internet access after usage for some time. I've determined [but not limited it to] that the computer heating is causing the computer to automatically disable the connections. I've looked at the Drivers and have found that one of the Drivers disables itself and will not re-enable when I try to enable it again. When I try to reboot, it stalls on the Shutting Down screen indefinitely [I must force restart].

INTEL(R) 82577LM Gigabit Network Connection
INTEL(R) Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN

I've checked the BIOS, but I haven't found much of anything. After tampering for a while with it, I received a BSOD. After trying to boot it back up, I got the "a disk read error has occurred" screen and had to send it in... at which point they reinstalled the OS, wiped my hard drive, and sent it back.

Dell :: N4010 Wireless Speeds / Network Drops

Sep 8, 2012

Using a usb wireless adapter will work on a laptop with wifi?

At my wits end on my dell n4010. Download speeds tested with are 1/3 (5mbs vs 15mbs) that achieved on an older dell with xp, a blackberry playbook and a macbook. N4010 has windows 7 and all drivers have been updated. 

I see some suspect a bad antenna within the n4010 might be the issue.

Games Randomly Stop Responding

Aug 31, 2012

Roughly once an hour my games will simply just stop responding, most notably on League of Legends everything else continues to happen around me uninterrupted but I cannot move my character nor can I use any abilities for about ~4 seconds and will do the same for literally every online game I have played.It doesn't seem to cut out my internet but when it happens on occasion it will crash a Skype call for about the same duration the unresponsiveness occurs.I have Optimum Online and a Linksys wired router with Windows 7.

DIR-655 - Router Randomly Deciding To Stop Working?

Apr 23, 2012

Once again I'm stuck to tethering on my phone due to my router deciding to call it quits for the random moment. I cannot access its control panel, the network just goes kaput. Given that I don't have access to the router since it's part of a double house (the side I'm not on of course), this is getting beyond irritating to reboot it when this happens as that is the only way to fix it. The connections are even wired, too. What kind of money does it take to get a router that is going to STAY on and just work? I'm ready to dump some serious cash into this at this point because this happens at least twice a week anymore. I just want a router that works. It needs to be wireless as my neighbor does use his kindle on it every once and a while.

Dell :: Inspiron N4010 - Internet Connection Shows Being Connected But Unable To Surf Net

Dec 25, 2011

I am having Inspiron N4010 for almost an year now. I have had many troubles with this but never with internet connectivity. Last week I saw myself not being able to be connected to internet through wireless or wired network while everybody else was connected and surfing. I just thought it to be a small problem and the problem seemed resolved that very day itself on its own.

But today this computer has simply failed to get connected. it does get connected, open a page or two and then again refuses to connect. On the problem diagnoses from network sharing center, it was showing that the websites are not responding, then it started showing that DNS server was not responding while all my setting are correctly configured. I pinged gateway and it responds but on pinging some website there is no response at all. It s a problem with my laptop only as everybody else are using internet very well. I am using internet through my WiFi enabled cell phone using the same connection and router that i use for my laptop. I need an urgent solutions as I have to meet some deadlines regarding assignments.

Dell :: Missing Network Controller Driver After Reinstallation Of Windows 7 On Inspiron N4010

Apr 21, 2012

I recently reinstalled windows 7 on my dad laptop after he  <ADMIN NOTE: Profanity removed as per TOU> it up beyond repair. After installing the appropriate drivers I still had no detection on my w lan adapter so I checked out the device list, and it says I'm missing drivers for two things: one is the network controller, the other is just listed as an unknown device. 

I already installed every driver for the appropriate devices on the laptop, in the correct order, or as i could best manage it, but still no dice. The only network driver on the disk for my inspiron is one for an Ethernet controller.

Dell :: XPS L502x / Cannot Connect To Network Without Disabling Security

Jul 10, 2012

My wife just bought a Dell XPS L502x. I cannot get it to connect to our wireless network without disabling the route security completely. Even then it is slow.

Dell XPS L502x
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Intel Centrino Wireless-N1030
Our router is a Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 GHZ WRT54GL

I am aware of the PSP issue and have turned off the option to allow the computer to turn off the adapter and have set the power settings to the highest settings for both battery and plugged in. I  have messed the routers security and the computer will not connect unless I turn off the security entirely. It connects but is slow. Anything else and it will not connect at all. Regardless, it can always detect the network without a problem and shows signal strength of Excellent (full bars) even when it is running slow. It works great on a cable or with a wireless usb adapter. I am positive that I am entering the password correctly as i have done this many times now. All other wireless devices in the house connect without a problem including her old Dell laptop.I have updated all the drivers (including the adapter) and keep current on all the Windows updates.when I run the ipconfig /all it lists all my wireless adapters and the blue tooth as "media disconnected". Not sure if that is referring to not being connected to the network or something else.

New Dell Inspiron N5030 Laptop Caused Wireless To Stop

Jan 19, 2011

My set-up is as follows.Orange Livebox (with no wireless network card), which is hooked up to a Buffalo Airstation HP-G54. Which is in access point mode.I have an old desktop PC (Medion from 2003/2004), and a new A52J laptop. Everything works perfectly fine, and I had great internet access all over the house.I have a new housemate who has moved in, and she has brought with her a Dell Inspiron N5030 laptop. This laptop is causing me nightmares!!All of us are on Windows 7.Basically, the internet is disconnecting all of the time, and right clif**king the icon and trying to fix does nothing at all. The only way to fix things are to reset both the Orange Livebox modem and the Buffalo Airstation router.My laptop/PC are using static IP addresses, I've tried hers on a static IP and also using DHCP - neither worked. I have tried ALL channels on the Buffalo Airstation - nothing works. I've tried updating her wireless network card driver - it did nothing.

Dell :: Inspiron 620 / Wireless Connection Stop Working Even After McAfee Removal

Sep 6, 2012

Few days ago the wireless in my son's Dell Inspiron 620 went bad. It does connect to my old router (WEP), but speed is terrible and connection goes bad after some time. I can also see my modern router and enter the key successfully (WPA2), but it won't connect. Connection to both routers went well for months before, and still goes well from all other devices in the house.

I read the issue with McAfee that was posted late August and followed the steps. Connection in safe mode didn't work. Then I removed McAfee from the PC, no difference. Then I restored the PC to a couple of days before the issues began, removed McAfee again (as it came back through the restore), no difference.

I reinstalled the drivers of the Dell wireless card, no difference.

Dell :: N5010 Wireless Randomly Disconnecting And Failing

May 28, 2013

I've had a N5010 laptop from a few years without many problems, using Win7 60b. Just a few days ago the wireless connection started failing saying there is no network available and that "there was a problem", what I had to do is right click the icon on the task bar, select the troubleshooting option that windows offers to fix it automatically, and after a minute or so the wireless is activated and working again, but just for a while since it lasts about 3~20 minutes and the problem starts again.

Other devices (like phones or other laptops) don't have this problem, so it's not a router issue.I've tried updating windows, re-installing the official drivers, rebooting the system, etc. I've also discovered that ethernet connection is just not working, as if it weren't there. There is no device shown on the windows device manager for ethernet.
