Random Drop Outs From Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Wireless Network
May 17, 2012
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 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).

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 have setup the existing wifi router (couple of years ago) so do have the basic networking knowledge but am not up-to-speed with all the latest developments in the industry2. ISP have provided a '******' ADSL modem that i need to connect to get this whole netwrok working. its only supports ethernet connections - (i live in a third world country)3. I have installed a TP-link Wifi router (WR841Nd). The modem on stand-alone basis is fairly decent, covers decent range on ground floor (my house is fairly big and is double story building) but with few dead spots. It supports N series so speed is quite good as long as one is within range.
Problemi have been living with it for couple of years but since recently i have been experiencing a lot of drop-outs/random disconnections and slow speed. I have tested my wifi router at friend's place and it showed no signs of problems so it has to be my ADSL modem (phone line is fine, though i am not close to exchange but that is not an issues as my neighbours are using the same phone line/ISP and they dont have an issue)another problem i have is the coverage, my current wifi only covers the ground floor and i would like to extend this to upper portione am looking to change my ISP provided ADSL modem. The problem is i dont know if i buy an ADSL modem off amazon and whether it would work or not because the setup is not straight forward and the ISP staff is corrupt. They dont provide with quality hardware neither do they have technical competence so i literally have to beg them at time to at least come and see the problem.Question1: ISP provided ADSL modem replacementi know the settings for ISP modem so i can search how i can replicate the same with Billion but can this work?Question2: RAnge ExtenderI am thinking of buying couple of powerline wireless extenders from netgear.
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.
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'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.
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 an XPS L502x laptop with an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless card. 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 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?
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 (188.8.131.52) 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.
Ok, I have a huge problem with my wireless connection. It will constantly lose connection to the internet from my PC, IPod, Laptop etc. What will happen is a yellow warning triangle appears which tells me I've lost internet access. I have had the modem checked and replaced by the ISP with no success so it's likely that it's not a problem on their end. I've changed the wireless channel to move it away from my neighbours with no success.
Here is a copy of my ipconfig /all when the connection dropped out:
C:UsersKevin>ipconfig /all Windows IP Configuration Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : Kevin-PC
This is not a problem I would not have noticed save for starting to use Skype. Every 10 to 20 minutes, my internet drops out. This occurs whether my laptop is connected via LAN cable or wirelessly to the router. Skype drops down to one bar, then drops out, and tries repeatedly to redial, sometimes achieving a very scratchy voice call for several seconds before dropping out again. If you redial in 2 minutes, it is fine and achieves medium quality video calls. Whilst skype is floundering around, I can sometimes browse the internet, but sometimes it is offline. I have phoned my ISP and they claim no problems on their end. Beyond that I really don't know where to start on looking for the problem.
I have this laptop with a built-in Intel Centrino Advanced-N + Wimax 6250 adapter to connect to WiMAX.Right now I have a WiMAX connection at home with a simple gateway. So what I want to do right now is trying to connect to this network using my built-in adapter.I'm facing right now is that the driver of the adapter only searchs for a certain provider from the US (Clear). I'd like to subscribe to their service but I live in Argentina so that's not a valid option. So my question is if you know of a custom driver or some other way to search for my local wimax network.
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 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 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...
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.
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.
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'm having problems connecting to the Internet using the wireless adaptor - it will connect initially but the connection is very very slow and then will eventually drop out and stop working.When I connect using an Ethernet cable, there are no problems whatsoever so I know it is not a service provider issue.I have updated the BIOS to A11 and all drivers are up to date. The wireless adaptor is Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030. [code]
Ok so I have a Netgear dg834gb v2 and I have a disconnecting problem on a wireless connection for my laptop. When I am using my laptop, my connection will drop at random moments mostly when I'm playing League of Legends. If I'm not playing it rarely disconnects. It drops for about 10 seconds and comes back up usually, but sometimes I have to reset the router. It only recently started happening and I have no idea why. Maybe it can't handle when I'm playing?
Currently using intel 5100 & 6200 client cards on multiple driver versions. WiSM is 7.0.116. APs are 1250 and 1260 series. Citrix is setup to send server-side keepalives for session reliability. Randomly, several times a day the client will get disconnected from the Citrix application session but maintain connectivity to the AP and other applications continue to work. Traces show the server-side keepalive reach the controller but are delayed from controller to client by 5-6 seconds. Just enough time for the Citrix server to timeout and tear down to session. Additional testing shows the delay most likely occurs somewhere from controller to AP. It occurs on multiple controllers on multiple campuses.
We have Dell/Broadcom clients that don't experience the problem. The only commonality seems to be the Intel cards. CCX? I know Intel has a special relationship with Cisco regarding CCX and have developed features not available on other cards. Tried disabling power save and other CCX features but hasn't solved the issue.
We have a Cisco 4400 WLC running version 184.108.40.206 and are experiencing clients randomly dropping both broadcast and multicast at the same time. This is not specific to one area of the site and the duration of the MC/Brodacast loss varies. These comms outages don’t happen on all the clients at once but usually affect one client at a time. After a few minutes or a few hours, the client will start receiving the multicast without user intervention.
The site has Cisco 1522 AP's that have rather interesting logs where the DTLS sends fatal errors, followed by CAPWAP going into discovery state. Not sure if this has the same affect or if that's a completely seperate issue.I was told it could be the GTK but I don't believe 7.0.220 has this feature even enabled. The clients are Cisco 3230 and Cisco 1310's. The clients are running version 12.4(25d)JA1 while the 3230 router is running version 12.4(24)T7. What supporting logs or configs need to be shared to better troubleshoot. This has been going on for quite some time and is frustrating the end user as multicast is essential to the operation.
I know now that this is a Desktop motherboard, officially not supported for Windows Server operating systems, but I would still like to get it to work. I've confirmed that the motherboard network works in WinXP (Intel 82579V Gigabit) and typically the 32-bit Windows XP drivers work on Server 2003 as well. Several of the other drivers have installed just fine, but the network driver install package fails with "No Intel Adapters are present."
I am trying to install Windows Home Server v1 (based on Windows Server 2003) on this box and just want to get a basic network driver up and running. I've checked the BIOS config, and Device Manager shows a yellow question mark by "Ethernet Controller". The ID is:
PCIVEN_8086&DEV_1503&SUBSYS_20408086&REV_043&11583659&0&C8 but I don't really know what to do with that...
Network running about 60 computers, most of which are running windows 7 professional. Some are on a domain, some are not.At (seemingly) random times, some computer on the network will lose the ability to browse websites (including the web interfaces of networked devices). I can't identify what circumstances cause this to occur. I only find out about it when someone calls me.From the affected computer:I can ping sites I can ping our Cyberoam UTM (which acts as our DNS, DHCP, and firewall)disabling/enabling connection doesn't fix the problem releasing/renewing ip doesn't fix the problem flushing dns doesnt fix the problem uninstalled antivirus on two test machines, problem still randomly manifests.replaced the Cyberoam with newer model users have claimed that if they wait a long period of time (40+ minutes) the problem sometimes resolves.rebooting the computer resolves the issue until it randomly occurs again changing the computer's mac address also resolves the issue until it randomly occurs again.
So initially brought it home, set it up and fired up connected to the internet perfectly fine with the stick. Then about once every 2/3 days, it would pick up no internet connection despite being next to the router and after 2-3 shut downs in a row would work again. When the connectivity icon was blank, I would go to trouble shoot it and windows 8 wouldn't do anything, not even attempt to detect the problems (bare in mind this PC is brand new).So I leave my home by my University and came back to my parents for Christmas. Lugged my PC back with me and set it up.So first I connected to the wireless no problems, loaded up my favorite forums and after image hovering over about 3 images the 4th would only load the top 3rd of the picture. Open up new tabs "Connecting" until:
A) Server would time out
B) Wireless would DC and then reconnect (before basically repeating the "3 image view")
C) Would work for a few hours (e.g. a streamed film) before screwing up again (rare)
So, reinstalled drivers, replaced the USB wireless stick (802.11n.) AND STILL problems problems problems. I then cleared the IP/TC stacks (I believe they're called) did it through the elevated command prompt and still nothing. So i'm using my sister's laptop to write this as my internet on my PC barely runs long enough for me to be able to check this page or download the program mentioned in the sticky.
I've recently just moved house and we got Virgin Media 50mgs broadband installed with their wireless super hub which is also a Netgear product.However I first noticed up in my room I have weak signal on my wireless devices I have my Dell laptop, xbox 360 and desktop pc with wifi card.I researched this and went out and bought a Netgear wireless extender:
Now this does work it gives me excellent signal but it keeps dropping the connection which is extremely frustrating when playing the xbox or on an online game on the pc.I contacted Netgear and all they suggested was updating the firmware
I currently have an issue with the wireless internet at home whilst watching videos, playing online games, completing homework etc... On the computers working over the wireless network there seems to be a randomly occurring drop out of the internet. My home network connection looks to be solid, but the internet drops out for around 5-10 seconds and then comes back.Here is a screenshot from Xirrus the wifi inspector program from the pc in my room connected via the network:[URL]The home network (Munasinghe and family) had a signal of -78 dBm.The second signal, Optus (name of ISP) wifi had a signal of -85 dBm. This signal value often decreases or disappears altogether.
Up until recently (4 months ago) my network was fine. However, all of a sudden the network began to drop randomly. Now, the network drops about every 30 mins. Its quite an inconvenience, especially as there are two laptops, a desktop and 2 games consoles running off of the network (not all at once though). I have a Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO router.
