I recently bought a mobile hotspot for my new start-up business (rather than paying for multiple internet locations) but I can't connect with my laptop--I'm really trying to avoid buying a newer laptop because my funds are limited right now.My iphone and PS3 can connect to the hotspot and run fine without any problems. The laptop can connect to my hotspot BUT the internet wont connect, it just says 'unidentifiable network'.
I just purchased a T-Mobile hotspot (ZTE) yesterday. It can connect to the T-Mobile network and appears to be working fine. My Wii can connect wirelessly to the the hotspot, but my laptop can only connect to the internet through the USB cord (which it's really not supposed to, because that's supposed to be for charging the device). When I try to connect via wifi to my hotspot, my computer can detect the network. However, after I immediately enter my password, it says that it cannot connect. When I click "Diagnose the problem" it says there was a timeout.I have Windows Vista and one of the tech support people mentioned that Windows Vista sometimes has problems connecting with handshake devices (but he didn't know how to fix it). Another person said I should have about 20 seconds to type in my password, so it shouldn't be timing out so quickly. Is it something with my computer? I have a Compaq Presario CQ60. I had this same problem when I tried to connect to a friend's hotspot a couple weeks ago (I don't remember if it was also T-Mobile or another provider, though).
Anyway, I have a Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4056 with Win7 Home Premium 64-bit. I've had it almost a year now and have never had trouble connecting to public wifi.Recently, I moved into a new apartment with free wifi and I seem to catch the signal from my apt even though it is poor. Every time I try to connect with my Toshiba it says, "Windows is unable to connect to 'linksys'." However, my husband's HP laptop and my old eMachines laptop (7yr old) (which I am using to research the problem) can connect with absolutely no issues. When I go to the clubhouse, my Toshiba can connect, however it cannot identify the network and does not receive an actual internet connection.
So far, I have uninstalled/reinstalled and updated my network adapter (Realtek RTL8188CE), I've used Command Prompt ipconfig /reset and ipconfig /release along with several other commands suggested to other wifi connection problemsI've checked my DHCP and DNS to ensure they're enabled.As for firewalls, I have turned off windows firewall and have disabled Kaspersky protection, however I have yet to uninstall and reinstall, this being because I can connect to a password prompted internet connection at work.I am unsure how to check my IP address or any of that
I just bought a laptop installed with Windows 8. I want to connect my iPhone to the Internet through the laptop. I have tried using Connectify to set up a WiFi hotspot. It works only with WEP and my iPhone can connect to the Internet but my iPhone disconnects from the hotspot after a while and I need to restart my Connectify hotspot, which is really annoying.I googled online and find that I can use the netsh command to set up the hotspot. I run command prompt in administrator mode and type in the following:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=adhocnetwork key=password
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
And then I share the wired network through control panel > network connections > ethernet > properties.I connect my iPhone to the hosted network and typed in the password. I see a tick next to the SSID, meaning it can connect to the hosted network.I also check the status of the hosted network. Both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity show Internet.But when I open Safari on my iPhone, it says no Internet.
I own a DELL Inspiron N5010 laptop.I use Reliance net connect in order to connect to the internet.I don't have any external devices connected to my laptop other than the USB data card.I have a smart phone and a tablet for which I need a WiFi connection in order to access the apps.
I think that N5010 has an inbuilt wireless adapter.Can I turn my laptop into a hotspot,so that I can access WiFi @ home for my other gadgets.I even downloaded a driver from the Dell support (Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 ) and also tried to set up a wireless connection using adhoc.I can see my connection listed in the system tray,but the connection says "WAITING FOR USERS".
We are having issue on our internet connection, before our Access Points you can use it without any problem... but now you need to put ip on the device so you can access to the internet, added info we are using Antamedia Hotspot Software installed.
My only options for internet have been 56k or wireless USB modems. That is, until recently. We switched from the wireless USB modems to a wireless hotspot from US Cellular (Samsung SCH-LC11). However, ever since making the switch I've had problems accessing certain websites both on our PC and on my Macbook Pro. I can't connect to Invision Free (or any of its user-created forums) or [URL]. It happens with other, random sites as well. I tried manually changing DNS settings to Google's and another one (don't recall which) and it did allow me to access the site. However, once there, every other site started moving slowly and eventually the ones in question timed out as well.
how to connect Hotspot shield automatically on startup of Windows xp By checking the option to show on startup it starts on the tray but doesn't connect Is there a command line or something to do to connect it automatically ?
I am using an IPhone 4 as a hotspot to wirelessly connect my pc to the internet using a medialink wireless USB adapter. It says I am connected the IPhone says I am connecte3d but when I click on internet explorer it says web page not available.
I have a 4g hotspot with no places to connect a cable, etc. I wanted to know if and how i can get a Netgear WGR514 router to pick up the 4G signal. I need this router because I have some other equipment that i need to connect that does not accept wireless signals.
i am using internet in my office where some websites are blocked like FB.in my office proxy server is being used.i download the portable hotspot shield to use FB. but i did not connected. During the time, when hotspot maintaining connection a msg has been written "waiting for the response from secure server."
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.
1st. I have a desktop and nearby there is wireless internet WiFi hotspot. How can I connect it to the wireless internet WiFi? I am thinking of buying this: http:[url]....Apart from that adapter do I need something else?
2nd. Where the desktop is, I have no reception. I mean because my cellphone has no reception when it is in the same place where the desktop is. But when I put my cellphone in the window around 12 feet away, there is reception. So I am wondering if I can make a 12 feet long USB cable from the desktop to the window and with the Wifi/WLAN Wireless Network USB Adapter in the window.
Couldn't connect to mobile hotspot but could connect to other networks, none of which were from a phone. When attempting to connect to hotspot, my phone displays the information of my computer as name unknown, IP address 0.0.0.0, but gives a MAC address. (My computer has a name, I can't find my IP address, idk what a MAC address is)I tried using remote desktop connection, but the computer I was trying to connect to couldn't find mine.
To be honest, I'm not sure I did it correctly, though.Displayed as 0.0.0.0 on phone when attempting to connect to mobile hotspot.I typed ipconfig in command prompt but got nothing about an IP address. There were several lines that began with "Tunnel adapter" all followed by "Media State : Media Disconnected" then "Connection-specific DNS Suffix: I currently have no internet connection (I'm on my phone), so I can't find it that way either.
Under Network Location it specifies that it cannot connect to MEMORYCARD (\EPSON00) (Z:) and upon clicking on it I receive an error message: "Microsoft Windows Network: The network path was not found. This connection has not been restored."I've spilled water on my keyboard before, but this took place after these problems arose. I dried the computer and had it sit with rice for 2 days. The only issue that came of this incident that I am aware of was a few stuck keys.
I am trying to use a MIFI hotspot for the internet, I have a wifi laptop, and a wifi printer.I would like to print wirelessly from my laptop and use the internet at the same time, but I can't. To print I have to go to my wireless network and switch to my router. And if I want to use the internet I have switch my wireless network back to the MIFI hotspot.
Where I live there is no DLS or cable to probide me with Interent access so I use my Verizon 3G/4G smart phone (Android) as a hotspot. Right now I am using an old Vista PC and ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) to provide Interent connectivity to my home network and Cisco lab. This works fine but I must have my smart phone near the PC for it to work. When I go to other rooms, I end up missing calls and texts since I have t oleave the phone if it is providing Inerent access at that time. If I can get the Airnet's to connect to the hot spot AND provide Internet access, that will provide me additional mobility. This would also be good for small businesses as a backup Internet Connection.
Is there any way that I could elimanate the Vista PC and have my Aironet 1231G Wireless router(s) automatically connect to my phone's 3G hotspot to provide Internet access to my lan?
I have 2 Airnoet 1231G's running the c1200-k9w7-mx.123-7.ja IOS and a C3550XL layer 3 switch.
I cannot get my Dell Laptop Inspirion c to connect to Iphone Hotspot. Is there s setting I need to change? My spouse's Dell laptop connects to Iphone hotspot without any trouble. I've restarted several time, it shows that it's connected, google will come up for a minute and then nothing.
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 am using the Vostro 3360 with win 7, I did used the hotspot station software accomplish with the WiFi driver before and worked fine. However, the hotspot is not working as the ipv4 is showing 'no internet connect'. And my iPhone cannot connect it too.
My Acer Aspire 5610Z laptop will automatically connect to public hotspot wireless network but when I attempt to connect to a wireless network at home, set up using a Netgear modem, I only ever get 'local' internet connection only. My wife's HP laptop has no problem making the home wireless connection.
I'm having iball laptop with LAN connectivity in Windows XP Service Pack 3. I found out how to create hotspot on laptop and tried it.Everything gone fine, network is showing up in my Ipod Touch too. But even after connecting to this network,I cannot access internet!Then I checked in Network Connections that both LAN & Wireless Connections are connected,but in Wireless Connection when checked in status the packets are sending but not receiving.This is how it shows with the command "ipconfig"....
I have found a great application that allows your PC to become a hotspot. It can also protect the wi-fi. Now remember whatever its your backend on the PC is what kind of network and speed you get such as, if my desktop connected through ethernet and I install the virtual router on the desktop than my laptop can connect to it depending on my Wi-Fi adapter on it. It could be B/G/N. B and G gives 54MBPS and N gives me 65MBPS.
The problem is: My Vista laptop cannot find the Wi-Fi hotspot I just create, although it appears on my XP desktop.If I used the included software to make my adapter as a Router, my Vista laptop can find the network and can connect to it. The problem is the internet connection always shows 'Identifying IP address' and later on it shows 'Unidentified IP address'.I also tried to hook up my laptop with the wire connection and using Vista to do the vice versa. (I did this before once when my friends and I went to Vegas and we were able to turn my laptop into a wi-fi hotspot through the hotel's wire internet). I'm able to setup a wi-fi network but:
+ Using the Wireless Connections of Windows XP, my desktop cannot find the hotspot.
+ Using the included software with the adapter, I can connect to the wifi network, but it's unable to go to Internet.
We live in the boondocks, and are forced to have Frontier for our ISP. We need to reconnect frequently, sometimes several times a day. We'd like to find an alternative to Frontier, and not a satellite connection (been there, done that). We are thinking about seeing if VerizonWireless could be our ISP but before I talk to them I'd like to know how much data we download. I asked Frontier but because our plan is unlimited, they say they have no way to knowing our data download per month. We have a Gigaset SE567 modem, and I'm wondering if there is some way to figure out our data download from that.
I have a computer hooked up to the internet with a cable modem via usb cable. The ethernet part of the modem is hooked up to my xbox 360.
I don't have a wireless router or a wireless internet connection but I do have a Belkin USB Wireless Adapter and I read on the web that you can turn your computer into a wireless hotspot if your computer has a wireless card with antennae or a usb wireless adapter.
Example, I have a Nintendo USB Wireless Adapter. All I do is stick it into my computer's USB port and it becomes a hotspot that I use to connect to my Nintendo DS to the internet wirelessly. So I basically thought that my Belkin adapter would be able to do the same thing only with whatever other devices I try, not my DS.
I am new to forum and stuck in connecting one computer to laptop. Here is the scenario: One computer running on windows 7 is connected to wireless router Netgear WGT624 v3 via Ethernet cable. The second is laptop running on Apple. The first one computer does not have any wireless dongle. The laptop is connected with Wifi Hotspot of mobile phone. Now I want to make network between computer and laptop via wireless router to share files and the Wifi Hotspot which is already used by laptop.
