Laptop Cannot Maintain Strong Connection To Wireless
Sep 5, 2011
I mostly use my computer in my house, so I am not sure if it is a network problem, or something is wrong with my laptop, but I am having a lot of trouble maintaining a constant connection lately. Often times, I try to load a page and it says "connection reset" or whatever.I have a Dell Studio laptop with an Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN wireless card. I am using the Broadcom Netlink driver along with Microsoft Miniport Adapter (all of this info came from my Device Manager). I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, 4GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 2.10 GHz, Service Pack 1.
can't figure out what's killing my desktop's connection.I'm running Windows 6 Ultimate x64. I was using an Aztech Wireless-N WL522USB adaptor before, and it was working perfectly fine apart from the fact that it was a tad slow, which led me to buy a new Linksys AE1000 adaptor.I'm guessing I caused some kind of conflict, because after an hour or two of use (and after installation of the drivers), I started getting DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSODs, as well as my connection dying on me. I did not uninstall the drivers for the Aztech adaptor before installing the new one, and I have a feeling this might have something to do with it. Anyway, right now, I've switched back to the Aztech (intend to return the Linksys), and I'm still having connection problems. The tooltip of the wireless icon on the toolbar shows "No Network Access", while clicking on it shows "Limited Access". I have neither internet access nor local access to the router. The weird thing is that it works for a VERY short period of time after starting up, where I will have full internet access, and after which it will revert to the Limited Access state.
I recently purchased an LG 42" LD550 Flat Screen TV. This TV is supposed to wirelessly connect to the Internet in order to stream Netflix, YouTube, Vudu, etc. I've purchased and connected the required LG AN-WF100 USB Adapter (dongle). My desktop computer is a Dell Studio XPS 435T/9000. My router is a D-LINK WBR-1310.
The TV simply won't maintain a connection with my network. Sometimes it will find the network just fine for several days -- then it disappears (in the list of networks, only my neighbors' networks show up, not mine).
I follow the steps in the LG manual: I go to "Network" and select "Wireless"
It then shows the AP List. My AP (SSID) is almost NEVER listed, but when it occasionally is, I select it and type in my Security Key. It then proceeds to scan, and 95 percent of the time, it comes back with the error message, "Connection is Failed. Going Back to the List". The other 5 percent of the time, it ACTUALLY CONNECTS for a while (sometimes a few minutes, sometimes a few days). Then it disappears, and the whole cycle starts again
It's been a week now since I actually got connected! Is it the TV or the router? My router works with other devices (laptop, Nook eReader, second desktop computer), so it HAS to be set up right, doesn't it? The entire reason for buying the TV was so that I could wirelessly stream from the internet, and I feel cheated.
I need to know if i can connect RAP to RAP and maintain redundancy with connection to WLC.
I have one 1552 with the gigabit ethernet connected to the gigabit ethernet to another device that has a point-to-point link with another device where have a ethernet connection with a switch in the same broadcast domain where i have my WLC.
Next to this 1552 i have another 1552 that have the same situation, both with omnidirectional antenna.
I would like to have a Mesh connection with these two 1552 in 5Ghz, because if some point-to-point link is down i need redundancy to the WLC and my network, because i have some clients connected in the 2.4 Ghz in both Access Points.
I'm using is the Netgear WNDA3100v2.What happens is when I attempt to connect to the internet I have to reset the adapter multiple times before it even recognizes my internet. And then once that happens it takes a few more tries to actually connect. And when I'm connected the speed is fairly decent (around 15-30 Mbps). Problem is, every 5 minutes maybe even less, I disconnect. Then I have to go back through the process of restarting the adapter and whatnot until I reconnect. I've been dealing with this problem for a few months now and have neglected to post about it anywhere because I didn't think it to be this unique.
I have tried just about every other "solution" I could find on the problem and none have worked. Also, if this says anything, I have a laptop setup literally 1 foot or less from my desktop and it connects perfectly well and good using the same adapter. Also I recently purchased another adapter (Linksys AE3000). I figured this might solve my ailment but of course, the same thing happens as the Netgear, except possibly worse. And that adapter works fine on the laptop as well. I also just yesterday completely reformatted my computer hoping it would work, but of course didn't. [code]
Im using a Sony vaio laptop with windows vista. My Internet used to work perfectly and suddenly today my wireless will connect but I can't use the Internet. My iPhone and my aunts laptop can connect and work fine, it's just my laptop that has the problem. I've tried a system restore and a few other things but nothing seems to work
I've recently picked up a E4200 to build a dual band network which is targeting to link up (TV, media server, ps3, laptops) then (maintaining phones etc which only has b/g). While currently only laptops.Before doing any of these I have another cisco modem router DPC3825 which worked fine with giving wireless access.I first attemped to leave the modem router has is and connected the E4200 (ethernet 1 to internet), and changed ip to x.x.0.1 and x.x.0.2 while disabling wireless on the dpc3825 and the DCHP on the e4200 and have default gateway to x.x.0.1. My laptops can connect to wireless on E4200 but it couldn't get internet access.
Then I tried turning the modem to bridge mode & resetted E4200 (factory setting x.x.1.1, auto DHCP), and then connected my devices to both wireless bands. At this point I see router status obtained ip from ISP and Internet reached full speed per ISP's mark but the connection only held up for about 1 minutes. I noticed all the devices still maintained connection to router wirelessly but the router loses internet connection (lost the ip and couldn't get it back).
I got Serbian Orion Telekom ADSL Max packet (16/1mb, modem: tp-link td-8816 v5), and used it in Belgrade without any issues with speeds of 13.95mb / 0.86mb. Since I have moved to another city (with recently done all infrastructure) I got this sudden CRC problems, plus ADSL2+ connection problems. Currently at ADSL2+ Annex A. and here is my speed test: And now, what's constantly occuring and is annoying me to bits is the thing that at ADSL2 connection I connect at 10mb with SNR of 6db and it successfully hangs on to the connection, but on ADSL2+ (16mb, max 24mb) with SNR of 6.8db it drops every few minutes. How can I use my 16mbit normally instead of only 10? Maybe some kind of low SNR router could work? How to treat CRC? I have new telephone cable, checked the splitters and also in wall connector.
I recently purchased the dir-632 and am having trouble getting my Apple Powerbook G4 to join the airport network. I get this message, you may have entered an incorrect password, (I know that I have not), network name (I know this is correct), chosen the wrong type of wireless security (here I think is my problem) or may be out of range of the base station, (impossible as I am 10 feet away, and my PC's all work in the same range).
-My settings are DHCP client -cable status Connected -network status connected -801.11 mode 11bgn
I get a good strong signal from the airport but get a status connected to network and getting status message at the bottom, but the signal changes to not associated with any network every 30 seconds or so. this just cycles between the two messages. the signal does not maintain a connection.
I borrowed a laptop from my sister while my laptop is out of commission. I've been trying to use the wifi, but the connection keeps dropping. I've tried following different pieces of advice from the internet, and I still can't get it working[CODE]
So I recently had to get Comca$t xfinity cable internet due to Verizon Fios not being available in my new home.With Fios on my laptop, I didn't lose connection at all in 3 years.With Comca$t, I lose my wifi connection just about every other minute.It just keeps disconnecting and reconnecting.I'm running Vista.My Ipad is connected just fine and doesn't drop connection.This makes me think it has something to do with my laptop. They are the same distance from the wireless gateway.
I have a new DIR-815 router, with a network consisting of one HP desktop computer, one Sony VAIO laptop computer and one Samsung tablet computer.My problem is that I can't seem to maintain a constant internet connection requiring a new router setup at least once a week, sometimes more frequently.Also, even though the network I set up is called "HOME" my desktop, which is the computer connected to my cable provider, never shows any connection to that network. Both the laptop and the tablet connect to the :HOME" network while the desktop connects to something called "Network 5" which does not show up anywhere in my setup. As long as I have an Internet connection I really don't care what the connection is called, but I find it strange that I am connected to a network that apparently does not even exist
I just got a job at a School district that has an extremly old and basic network setup (No Firewall, only 2 accounts on the server Student and Teacher). They have two small buildings that have 1 wireless router on each floor about in the middle of the hallway. I am having a strange issue I haven't seen before with a windows 7 laptop that a few of the teachers in the district are having. They can see the wireless router on the network but everytime they try and connect it says "Windows Cannot Connect or is Denied Access". All the other laptops in the building connect fine.Heres what I have done so far.
-Power cycled the router, nothing. -ipconfig /release, and renew, nothing. -Getting closer to the router and connecting, nothing. (Also tried with a differant laptop in the room and it could connect no problem which confused me more) -Updating the network card.(says it has the latest updates) -Re-entering the network key, nothing
What I haven't tried is setting up manually a static IP. But do I need to do that? And if so how do I know which IP to give it is there a way I can generate a list of all the IP's on the network?
I have been having some trouble lately with my internet since I have been home from college. I have no problem connected to my router wirelessly, and I always have a strong connect seeing as I am no more than 15 feet from the router. The problem arises sporadically for different intervals. One second I will be browsing the internet with no problem, and the next second I am unable to load any pages.
I was just in a Skype conversation with one of my friends and had a perfect connection with them. I was on twitter at the same time, when suddenly the pages stopped loading. The weird thing is, my connect was still strong while video chatting and it did not cut out. Why my web pages will not load while I still apparently have a strong connection.
I have 2 laptops, a DELL (windows XP home) and a Toshiba (windows 7).i suddenly couldn't get online with my Toshiba a week ago. Looks like I'm connected, but just can't send out. I changed to the DELL and all was fine for days, then I suddenly couldn't send out for a website with this, either. My connection shows strong, and can receive, but can't send out. This is a secure network (supposedly). I've rebooted, and have internet phone that works, so it's not the modem.
I have been working with my ASA 5505 VPN Concentrator to maintain a connection with one of my remote sites. I have several tunnels that work fine and dont have any issues at all, but one tunnel with outside IP ending in 146 and inside LAN 192.168.3.0 goes down every 24 hours. Attached is the config from the concentrator. I changed around the Security Association Lifetime Settings and the tunnel would drop after that amount of time expired. If I set it to 24 hours, the tunnel would drop every 24 hours. If I set it to 8 hours it would go down every 8 hours.
I have swapped the router a few times, double and triple checked my key settings, disabled keep alives on both ends, and this problem just started happening a few weeks ago after working fine for years. I also get the following e-mail error every time it goes down:
<161>Jul 10 2011 16:19:47: %ASA-1-713900: Group = xxx.xxx.xxx.146, IP = xxx.xxx.xxx.146, construct_ipsec_delete(): No SPI to identify Phase 2 SA!
i bought a second hand acer one net book for my daughters birthday in a couple of weeks when i first tried it it work i could go on the net, now it wont says can't find server. connection strength is strong 100% system is running ubuntu.
I have a Linksys N Router connected to a Windows 7 computer. My wired connection through Comcast is an average of 25 Mbps. In the bedroom above me I have another computer with a Linksys N Adapter on Windows Vista. I am receiving a strong WiFi signal on an average of 240 Mbps. However, my internet downstream is less than 1 Mbps and the upload is over 3 Mbps. I've updated the router's firmware and reset it twice. I've also tried changing the channels and switching to broadcasting "N" only. Linksys won't facilitate because it's out of warranty.
I have a Belkin Wireless G Router. Whenever I set up a wireless password and network name, within a few hours, the router resets its self to its factory settings. The router will not let me maintain a secure network because of this. How do I make it so that all the settings that I set will stick?
When we originally deployed our Cisco Prime NCS and MSE Virtual Appliances, the VMsphere server they were on was not able to assign us the level of resources we requested. We installed the MSE as "LOW" system due to the memory and CPU requirements. It has a 2000 CAS element limit. At the time we were licensed for 1000, so no huge problem.
Now, we purchased a Cisco UCS C240 server to run our Prime NCS and MSE on, which gives us our own environment where we have plenty of resources. I also bought 6000 CAS element licensing.
The catch is, how can I either do a fresh install, using the same UID, on our new UCS server, so that our licensing is still valid when we move the box, or, is it possible to do some sort of platform reinstall or upgrade after moving our original MSE VM guest over to the UCS server? Sadly, I can't even utilize the additional 1000 CAS element licensing at this time because it won't allow me to add the 6000 license and use only 2000, on the LOW appliance. So I've got to get these VM guests moved, but maintain any UID's so that the licensing still works.
Is it possible to disconnect the licensing we have, from the UID, and move it to a different UID?
I have 2 PCs in my home both running windows 7. My PC is directly receiving internet (10mb/s broadband). I have tried a few times to set up wireless for my mother who has her PC in the other room. The problem I have is that all though her PC recognizes the signal from my wireless, when I try hit connect, nothing happens and it gives me troubleshooting options.
I have one WLC 4402 & arround 29 Access point (1130) in our enterprise network. Wireless users LAN segment is diffrent from wired users.Wireless users like Laptop users, Mobile users & ipad users which are connetced with this wireless & using enterprise network.
Presently we are using WEP mode for security key. This WEP key are week & can be cracked easily. so security point of view i want to put strong encription mode.Presently i do not have any radius server.I found there are some modes are available Like WPA, WPA2 with PSK etc.
will there any problem with wireless users to access application after changing the mode? Which mode will be stronger & could not be crack. Could we achieve without radius server or not?
I have a Linksys wireless-G connected to my main computer and modem. We live in an extremely long house and I am attempting to connect a Belkin wireless-G router so that the signal is stronger on the other side of the house.
Well I just recently got my computer back from Gateway.I sent it off to them because I was having overheating issues.Well they fixed that by replacing the cpu and fans. But now that I have it back I'm not getting a very good signal from my wireless router. I'm one room away from the router and it use to be full bars...Now I'm at a steady 2 bars, signal strength poor. I used to be able to pick up probably 20 networks that were close to me. Now I don't pick up any of those, just my own. I'm wondering what the heck happened! I've tried restoring my system but it didn't do anything. Also, if I go to Control panel and click on diagnose wireless adapter it will say it fixes it, and then a bunch of networks pop up, all good strength, even mine will have full bars for about 30 seconds, then boom, all the other networks disappear and mine goes clear down to 2 bars.
I currently have a 20MB down and 2MB internet. I have a Cisco Linksys E4200 with Firmware Version 1.0.05. We have a two bedroom apartment, one of the bedrooms is our office which is by the front door. We have the wireless router and our modem in the office. We have an apple TV in our living room that is connected to the wireless internet. Every time we get random times where the video output is very pixely and seems we are streaming shows/movies on a 56k modem.
So I have been trouble shooting this for just over a day and still nothing, but anyways. My computer says that I am connected to the wireless router and that I have great signal strength but I have no internet access from either my IPv4 or IPv6. I have been using the cmd commands such as netsh reset, and the like. I have restarted both modem and router a few times as well as my computer. Also just did a recent avg scan and firewalls are all off. This is all coming from my mac laptop which is connected just fine which leaves me even more confused.
I have two desktop computers upstairs.The main pc has the Linksys G Router and the other pc is wireless with a network adapter. All works fine here.Downstairs and on the other side of the house, I use my laptop which is wireless to the network. I also have a 46" hidef tv hooked up to a blu ray player and also connected to the network with a wireless adapter. I use Netflix to stream movies and seem to be having a problem with the signal in this room, both on the tv and my laptop. I sometimes only have 2 bars on my laptop and frequently get disconnected to the internet. When I am streaming movies or tv series, I get frequent stops and starts.
I am guessing that the signal is just not strong enough to reach this far from the router. Would switching to an N router be better for streaming? Would another G router downstairs solve my problem?
I am upgrading the network equipment at my place of employment. We use Cisco C3560, 2960, 4506 and I was noticing that IOS 15.0.x is available. After doing some reading it appears that Cisco is going to a pay for the licensing functionality that you want. Do I need to purchase licenses to upgrade from IOS 12.X to 15.0.x to maintain functionality?
I have been having little to no connection to the internet on my laptop for the past few weeks.
