New Dell Laptop Connects Then Loses Wireless Connection Within Seconds?
Jul 31, 2011
Our entire office runs on wireless connections (laptops, printers, desktops, etc) and we have little to no connectivity issues considering. However, we just purchased a new dell laptop. the laptop connected but within 5 seconds immediate loses the connection and reconnects, disconnects, etc.. This is continuous. All other devices, 2 other never-before connected laptops and a tablet have all sucessfully connected without issues...only this new dell laptop does it. The laptop connects and stays connected to all other wifi connections we have tried it with (other corporate wifi and home wifi's). Dell has replaced the wireless card to confirm there was not issue with that (which I was confident there wasn't). Our IT contact suggests buying a new $500 router, but that is a little hard for me to accept seeing that only 1 device is having difficulties (his other reason for this was his concern that he couldn't access something like the router's management tool, or something like that). New Laptop is running W7 OS..
Basically my modem will randomly disconnect (all the lights shut down expect for the power one) for 2-3 seconds max and it happens just at a random time. When I'm on my PC I barely notice cause I'm not consistently loading something up. However, when I'm gaming (PS3) it's really frustrating because I will always get disconnected. The router is working fine and my PS3 is connected by wire. What should I do? Can it be my internet provider?
I have an ASA 5505 that during preak usage, likes to lose it's connection to the cloud for 50 seconds. The device is alive and kicking, can route between different interfaces, but it's connection to the cloud dies. This happens every 45 minutes or so during our peak internet usage.
the nastyness of the config, I was having issues getting PPTP pass-thru to cooperate, and never cleaned up after myself.
Result of the command: "show run"

I just got my first wi-fi printer, a V715w. Even though the Wi-Fi light on the front of the printer is green, I very often can't print to the printer. I get a box saying the printer can't communicate with the computer. I would have thought that the green light was signifying that Wi-Fi communications existed. Wrong? Then what does the green light signify? When I check the settings on the printer front panel, it shows the all the correct info, SSID, etc.. Do I need to do something each time before I try to print in order to ensure a wireless connection exists? Shouldn't the printer stay connected to the Netgear dual band wireless N router all the time? The computer, Win XP, sp3 stays connected to the router all the time. I expected the printer to do the same.
My Inspiron N5110 loses the wireless connection frequently. We have many other devices in the house -- laptops, iPhones, etc. -- that continue to work flawlessly through the same router when I lose my connection. The troubleshooter generally leads me to resetting the router, even though, as I have indicated, the router is working properly.
I have a new inspiron 1564 laptop that loses connection to my wireless internet within 10 minutes of booting up. Then if I reboot it does not connect at all, can't even find the wireless router.
My works laptop and iPhone connect to the same router perfectly.I've seen the following post a few times from pudgyone and tried following it :Go to device manager(right click my computer, left click properties, left click hardware, left click device manager). Click on Network and then right click on your wireless adapter, left click properties, power management. Uncheck the box, allow computer to turn off this device to save power.
In terms of the device manager I can't see a network option, there is network adapters and I've right clicked on Realtek PCIe FE family controller and unticked the box but this hasn't worked.
And with the settings, how do I get to the screen where I can change my router settings in windows 7? I think the firmware is updated remotely by my service provider sky.
I have a WRT160 V2 router with firmware v2.0.02. I have had the router for years without any problems. A few months ago I have started to see an issue where I lose connection to my internet on my laptop, and wifi on my phone at the same time. I have wifi calling on my phone and it disconnects also at the same time. All of a sudden, everything will stop working, then about 40 seconds later, it all works again. I lost the connection maybe every 30 to 60 mins. I rely on wifi calling for my primary phone, and I end up getting cut off when talking to people. BTW wifi calling is for all tmobile phones, but also normal wifi to surf the web on my laptop and phone drops too at the same time.
I have a WRT 160N v2 router. There's 1 computer wired to it, that works fine. Then I have 2 laptops and a pc wireless to it. One laptop is a mac and that seems to be fine, another is a Compaq notebook that has trouble connecting and the pc has the same problem. The signal strength is very good to excellent so thats not the issue. What happens with the pc is, it will connect but at times its only for a few seconds then it disconnects. Sometimes restarting the computer fixes it for a while but it will eventually start having the problem again. It detects the wireless network just fine, and the router's firmware is up to date. I have a feeling that its the settings in the router but im not sure what to change.
I have a new EA3500 router that's working great for a variety of devices* except a Windows7 laptop. 24 hours after establishing a connection, the laptop loses connectivity and it's very difficult to re-establish a connection. Usually I have to reboot the router, but 24 hours later the problem returns and Windows is unable to connect.
My router settings include DHCP client lease time set to 1440 minutes (24 hours), so I thought the problem might have something to do with DHCP lease renewal. To test this theory, on Saturday night I did ipconfig/release and ipconfig/renew and established connectivity from the laptop.
Sunday morning I spoke with Linksys support and changed several settings per their recommendation:Network mode mixed (I had it on N-only for some reason)Assigned different SSIDs to the 2.4GHz band and 5 GHz band2.4 GHz band channel is 20MHz only, using channel 95 GHz band channel is 40 MHz only, using channel 161I also power cycled the router. Everything worked fine until Sunday night, 24 hours after the release/renew, when I lost connectivity. I am not sure what to try next and whether the problem lies with the router or the laptop.
New laptop, connected to my home network which is very stable and has no history of connection issues. After about 10 seconds the laptop drops the connection. Sometimes it'll come back for a while sometimes not, haven't observed any pattern in this yet, All I've done since starting the computer for the first time is installed all the junk that comes with it (Nero stuff mostly) and installed all windows updates (there were over 60 of them) and AVG Free edition. Before doing all that the connection was still not right but it did hold for a lot longer than 10 seconds. It held for over an hour downloading programs like Itunes, AVG and Firefox, Going to control panel > network sharing centre when the connection is down I see the yellow exclamation mark between my computer and my network. Troubleshooting this resets the network adapter, gives me the error 'The default gateway is not available' and says that it is fixed. The connection then works again for about 10 seconds and drops once more.
User has a laptop, takes home and uses in office.Running Windows XP. Once he comes in the office, tries to retrieve a file from his network drive connection, the laptop loses the drive connection.It will restore only if I reboot just to drop shortly after.
My laptop loses connection to the router.... constantly. When it disconnects I check my available networks and the laptop will not pick up any... neighbors or my own, I refresh they show up ...I have my network set as the preferred so it will always attempt to reconnect when available; Sometimes it starts to reconnect then drops off and cannot see available networks again! If I am able to reconnect... Sometimes I don't even have time to refresh my browser before it disconnects again; however sometimes I stay connected for hours at a time, other times/days just can't stay connected very long and becomes so frustrating that I just shut down the laptop and say "Fahgetaboutit"
I thought it was the network driver and a intel has an update(even though my LT doesn't show that I need it), I downloaded the update first knowing that I would be with out internet service after removing the old driver software but the new software installation always gives an error that it cannot install with older version present even after I'm sure I've removed it ... Not sure what to do... I ran cmd: ipconfig /all>network.txt&network.txt and here is the result of that straight from the activated notepad:
Only at my home network, my HP Pavilion Laptop wifi will sporadically just stop identifying the router. The router (and Intel) shows enabled and good signal and my husband's laptop shows no interruption. My wifi keeps trying to reconnect but can't. I have to power off the router to reboot it so my wifi connects again. This is really annoying...
I recently got a computer, and it's all running fine, except for the internet.My internet connects through wireless to a box, I have no idea what you call it. Router?The house has three active laptops, all of which are working perfectly fine. This new computer,however, is a desktop, and I am trying to connect to my house's internet through a USB stick device that transmits the signal (D-link, model DWA-110). I know for a fact that this device works for two reasons. Firstly, I've used it in another laptop, and more strangely, it works on this new computer sometimes too.After about half an hour of random methods to make a connection stick, it might connect. And it lasts until the computer goes to standby, or is turned off. This is just random stuff through the network and sharing centre part of the control panel.Nothing ever works twice, and I haven't been able to replicate it for about a week. It successfully connects, and the connection is real because I can access the internet momentarily. But it always just disconnects again. I've tried it in every USB port, too.The signal strength is excellent, and when it connects it works great. It just almost always fails to.
I have a modem/software issue when dialing into my ISP. Modem seems to handshake correctly with the ISP, password is accepted, then I get the normal message "Registering the Computer on the Network". This never goes away ( it should in a few seconds) and the machine freezes with no cursor/mouse movement or keyboard. Only way to get out of this is to hold the power button until computer powers down. Reloaded the modem driver. Tried an external USB modem and the same thing happens. Used another computer of the same make and model and it works fine on the same phone line/ISP.
I bought a brand-new Inspiron 15R laptop from Dell and the DW1510 Wireless N WI-FI card will only connect at a maximum of 72mbps. I've tried the laptop with two different N certified routers a (D-Link and Belkin). Routers are configured correctly for N speed and within 10 inches of the laptop.
The speed I am experiencing is nowhere near the 300mbps connection speed possible.
Recently I have purchased Inspirion N5040 with Windows 7. I have observed the system looses internet connection when on Wi-FI.
Checked Ping on Yahoo & google with -t option and found few ping response and then a lot of request time outs.
I am sure you must be doubting the signal strength of Wi-Fi but I can confirm the signal strength was fine. In fact I performed ping test simultaneously on another laptop . The performance on other laptop was fine but on Inspirion N5040 I was finding too many Ping drops and was not able to browse properly.
I also, verified setting on Wireless adapter and found it is in DHCP.
I have a Netgear N600 (I'm not sure if this is the model number...) and the wireless adapter that was built into my P8Z77-V Pro is an Atheros AR9485. Everything was working fine up until last night, and now I can't seem to connect to anything for more than a couple seconds before it disconnects me again. I should also note that my phone, my iPad, my laptop, and my other PC connect just fine still.

So i have a dell latitude e6400 laptop running windows XP. Now whenever I connect to my home wireless network, it will connect fine but randomly it will stop sending or receiving data. Therefore i cannot connect to any websites and i get a connection error. I check my connection though and it is running through an excellent connection.
I've had some trouble with this and I post here, because I ran into this topic which is almost the same as my problem.Recently I started renting out one of my rooms to this guy with a Windows laptop. Everything I have is Apple:- iMac (with Windows in dualboot)- Macbook (with Windows in dualboot)- iPhone iPad- Airport Extreme (that is connected to the modem/router from the ISP by cable to create its own, more stable, wireless network)I never had any trouble with this network, not when my Macbook is running Windows or when classmates come over to work on a project (some have Windows), but as soon as this guy moved in, the internet started acting weird.Example: The internet is working fine, but when my flatmate comes home and opens his laptop, the internet crashes. Any process that was already connected, continues to work fine (e.g. a downloading torrent-file), but any new "assignment" for the internet just creates an error in Chrome ("the page does not exist" or "the server took too long to respond" for example). At those times, I can't even connect to my router through 192.168.1.1, but the WiFi still works (I can stream videos over the network from iMac to iPad without a problem). After about 2 minutes, the internet is up again, only to repeat the above after about 10 minutes.
I now have denied his MAC-address access from our router, because it was impossible to do schoolwork or just basic browsing, but I would like to just give him access of course! (it's in the contract)I'm going to call my ISP tomorrow and ask what they think is wrong, but I'm 99% certain it's my new renter's laptop. He claims his computer is completely clean, but I'm suspecting there is some kind of process running that just clogs all DNS-requests (or am I saying something weird now?
on brand new 3521 laptop with Win7 Pro the WLAN connects to selected wireless router but fails to establish internet connection.
WLan Driver 1703 was duly installed after the Chipset driver were installed , as recommended.Other mobile devices happily connect to same router. Ubuntu on this laptop was also happy to connect to internet on WLAN, only Win7 fails.
Turned off Win7 firewall , but no change. Shows unidentified connection in Network and Sharing Center. Router SSID etc were correctly entered. Deleted WLAN profile and reentered , no change.
Tried to connect to another wireless router with same result. I can only run this laptop on wired connection to the router. I am at a loss as to what other steps I could take to fix this WLan / internet connection.
I've a Dell VOSTRO 1710. When I use an ethernet connection with my router, there is no problem. But when I try to have a wireless connection, all the wireless network of mine and of my neighbors are recognized, my WPA password too. Vista (32 bits) says I am connected but, when I try to reach a page on the web, get my e-mails or even ping an IP, I get no response. Note that I have other devices connected to that router which works without problem. I thought it was the driver of my Wifi card (Intel 4965agn) that does not work. Thus, I try to update (and even downgrade) them from Intel® Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN - Download Center. Nevertheless, it does not work. Note that it worked one week ago. The problem has suddenly appeared.
My wireless connection won't stay connected for more the a few seconds, and it will keep trying to re-connect, then connect and then disconnect.It's not the router as I have another laptop that connects just fine
When my laptop is plugged into the router via ethernet cord I get about 40 mbps of download speed but when it is wireless I get to about 5 mbps. Why is there such a drastic change in the speed? I understand a wired connection would be better, but I don't see how it would make THAT much of a difference. I currently have Comcast XFINITY so I don't think it's my ISP.
Our HPG62 notebook and a Dell laptop use wireless router in our home. This AM the Dell connects via wireless, the HP shows green on our wireless network but but the house symbol above the list of available wireless networks says "no internet access". I've tried looking for an external switch but don't see one. We are fairly basic users and don't know what to do.
I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop that is about 6 years old running Windows XP. I have a Dell desktop with a cable modem and Linksys wireless router connected to the desktop to run my home wireless network.
Yesterday the wireless no longer worked on my laptop. I have a small wireless icon (looks like a computer monitor) with a yellow triangle with an explanation point inside. The messages are 'Signal Strength: Excellent' and 'Status: Limited or No Connectivity'. I have tried the following with no success:
- Rebooting the laptop (multiple timess)
- Resetting both the cable modem and router
- Turning off the desktop, resetting both the cable modem and router, and rebooting the desktop
- Took my laptop to work where a wireless connection is available and received the same messages
Thinking my wireless adapter / wireless card is bad I purchased a Linksys wireless USB adapter and just installed it. However it also cannot connect to my wireless network and issues a 'Open network Failure' error.
The Internet works fine from my desktop but is directly connected to the modem. I have not tried connecting the modem directly to my laptop to see if it would pick up the connection.
i hav a dell inspiron 1564 laptop. wireless connections show only when the lap is very close to the router. will i hav to change my wireless card?? if i hav to which would be better; a internal wireless card or a wifi dongle?? i hav a 'dell wireless 1397 WLAN Mini card"
I've recently bought a new desktop with a TL-wdn4800 wireless device. when i start up i instantly get full bars for my wireless however after about a minute, it drops down to one bar, and becomes hardly usable. i'm wondering if this is the device turning itself off and reverting back to the default inbuilt wireless device?
I have a compaq presario that will connect to my wireless network but when i open internet explorer or mozilla firefox the page will not load and says that the server cannot be found. i don't think the router is the problem since i have a separate computer that connects just fine wirelessly and a ps3 that connects to the internet just fine. the only way i have been able to access the internet with the compaq is plugging it into the modem with the ethernet cable but i want to connect wirelessly.
So have got fibre optic broadband which meant installing new network and wired/wireless router. Everything working fine except on one (vista) laptop which connects wirelessly but cannot get past the router to the network.
I have wireless internet at home through a Belkin router.It used to work fine but one computer wouldnt connect. I tried checking the security password on my laptop and ever since it won't connect. (However, now the other computer does!) It picks up the signal from the router but just won't connect. When I run ipconfig I get a message saying Media Disconnected. I've searched forums and can't find an answer to this.The laptop still connects to the wireless internet in my office so the wireless capability obviously still works.
I have a Dell E4300 with a 1510 wireless mini adapter running windows 7 pro with a netgear WNR3500 router running wireless N protocol. I have my laptop setup to sleep when lid is closed. When it awakens the wireless connection will not automatically reconnect and I have to manually select the SSID and connect. It will also reconnect if I use the network troubleshooter. The problem does not happen if I reboot the PC or start from a power off situation. I have the latest Dell driver and I am running the DWLAN utility.
I just bought a linksys AE1000 usb wireless adapter for my desk top computer because there are no phone lines in the room with the computer for me to connect the dsl modem. In the room with the dsl modem there is the Linksys E3000 wirless router. My desktop will randomly lose connection with the router yet other devices that use wifi in the house work fine (ex: ipod touch, android phone, and xbox 360.) i have went through and reset all devices and gave the desk top priority in the network but it hasnt worked. The desktop uses XP.
