Realtek RTL8188 Wireless Adapter Not Connecting To Home LAN
Feb 17, 2011
I'm trying to connect to the internet on another PC (on my desktop, not this laptop I'm sending this request on). I know my network is working OK, because I'm on it now (on my laptop), but the Realtek adapter is not connecting on my destop PC.
I have a realtek wireless usb adaptor on my hp desktop that was working until I took it out of the usb on the front of the tower and plugged it into a usb on the back of the tower. Now I can't get internet at all even if I move it back to the front! My network doesn't show up under connections. Both the playstation 3 and the netbook are picking up the wireless signal from the router.
I've found my old (1, or 2 years old) Realtek RTL8187B USB 2.0 Wireless Adapter. I plugged in into my PC, but it doesn't find any networks, but it works 100% on my laptop. On PC windows said, that maybe something wrong with the driver, I reinstalled it a few times, but same happened again, again. Both has Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
I have a Netgear FA311v2 Pci adapter and the onboard Realtek RTl8168/8111 PCI-E (NDIS 6.0) url...Which one should I use for Win7 64 bit? They are both fairly old and I am unsure as to which is best if I am doing a lot of FPS gaming.
I have just re-installed Windows Vista on my Toshiba Laptop and it connects fine to my virgin media router using a LAN line but when I try connecting wirelessly, no networks are found. I've tried up-dating the driver files form the C: drive(Window) and also from the net but with no joy.. Network adapter is a Realtek RTL 8187B. I hate admitting defeat as Im sure the solution is probably something simple..
I am having an intermittent problem with my network connection dropping out for no apparent reason.When it drops, I still see the lights blinking on the NIC card, but cannot pass packets even to the router.Windows does not report the connection or the cable as disconnected when this problem is occurring.The problem will persist until I disconnect and reconnect the CAT-5e wire, or disable and re-enable the NIC.As soon as I do one of those 2 things, connectivity immediately returns (and works for another hour or so).I am running a legitimate copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on an HP Pavilion.All of the latest Windows updates and the latest firmware drivers are installed.My ethernet connection is a wired Local Area Connection with a static IP address, gateway and DNS.The IP address, gateway and DNS settings are accurate and work for several other computers here.[CODE]

Receive Buffer Size on the NIC is 64Kb (512 buffers). Receive Side Scaling on. 128 Transmit Buffers.Interrupt Moderation is turned on. Magic Packet features are turned off. Optimal Performance enabled.NIC Speed and Duplex are set to 100mbps Full Duplex wherever possible (automatic was also tried).802.1X authentication (EAP or PEAP) is disabled. Auto connection logic is disabled.Connection routes through two switches into a Belkin router; other devices on same networks unaffected.Much of my data is stored on a Network Attached Storage device, with UNC shares mapped to drive letters.Other Windows, Mac and Linux devices connected to the same NAS device have no problems staying connected.When the issue occurs, I can't ping the gateway, do DNS lookups or pass any packets as far as I can tell.I have tried swapping out the CAT-5e cables for other cables and even ran them through a cable tester.
Network fixes I have attempted from the OS level so far include:
~ Switching the dynamic port range to start at 10,000 and run for approximately 54,000 ports
~ Systematically reviewing every running service to make certain that only the essential ones are on
~ Disabling all NIC stacks except Client for Microsoft Networks, IPv4, File and Printer Sharing and Comodo
~ Attempted connections with Comodo turned completely off and its NIC driver disabled
~ Attempted rolling back the RealTek driver to an earlier one from the same family and device line
Using netsh I have tried the following settings:
~ netsh winsock reset catalog ~ netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log ~ netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log ~ netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
I have a Toshiba Equium A200,(from new some time back) however, i have had it updated with new 500mb drive etc! I also some time back installed Windows 7 home. At first all was well, then a few months ago i noticed (upon star-up) that the network adapter was not connecting to my Belkin router? The Network & sharing centre tells me that it is connected, although the icon on the bottom toolbar shows a yellow triangle & reads No Internet connection? I have to go through the same process evrytime to get connected, which usually takes approx. 5 mins That is to follow the Network/share centre's troublshooting? I have updated the adapter Driver, yet still the problem exists?
I got this wireless Linksys ae1000 adapter about 3 weeks ago on amazon and it worked fine for 2 weeks by connecting to the Internet and it had excellent connection then it stopped detecting my network. I tried updating it with the Cd and it said it was up to date. The computer is a Compaq presario and is about 14 years old. I looked in device manager and there were no? s or !s in adapters.
This only started to happen recently. when I log into windows, it creates a big fuss about connecting to my router...It takes a good 5 minutes of plugging and unplugging my adapter and restarting my router.
I have TPNW721N wireless network adapter on my Compaq Presario sr1520nx. I am using latest driver. I am using Windows XP. Using Windows Zero Wireless.When I connect I get a red X under the red and side of wireless connect icon on system tray.
It would not connect to the internet even after I click repair.If did an ipconfig /all and this is what I got-
For quite some time my linksys wireless g notebook adapter hasn't been connecting to the Internet at all. I go to my Internet options and my house's Internet router doesn't show up. I remember a long time ago I was clearing space on my computer because its and old one and it runs slow Because I don't have much memory and I might have accidently deleted the linksis progam / installation. And I have no way of re-intalling it. I think the only way of re-installing it is using the linkage disc but I lost it in some boxes packed in storage.
My laptop is an ACER Aspire 4750z. I installed Ubuntu version 12 for a change, then I got fed up with it and installed Windows 7 back. Before installing Ubuntu my wireless network adapter used to connect to wifi, now after reinstalling windows 7 it wont connect to WiFi. The wireless icon in the task bar shows the available wifi but it doesn't connect.My wireless network adapter is Atheros AR5B97
I am trying to connect wirelessly to my BT Home Hub via a USB Wireless adaptor. The homehub works perfectly and I have other laptops in the house connecting via the wireless networkHowever, this is the problem. The Wireless connection status shows as good but packets only being sent and not received. Therefore when I load Internet Explorer, I get WebPage Not availableI notice that my IP address is starts with 169 and researching forums suggests that this is the problem and it should start 192? I have tried all sorts of things but simply cannot get this resolved. If I plug the HomeHub into the laptop directly, the connection via the ethernet cable works fine.
I recently set up a VPN on my home computer. I am wondering if it is possible for me to connect to the internet via the VPN without also being connected to the internet via my home wireless network? Right now, whenever I disconnect from my home wireless network, my connection to the VPN will also cut off. This is a problem because should my connection via the VPN ever be interrupted, my home wireless connection would then "take over" the connection, and the eb sites I'm visiting would then be able to see my real IP address, which makes having a VPN pointless. I'd like to have it so that if my VPN connection is interrupted, I will simply not have internet until the VPN connection comes back.
Trying to connect my Dell Dimension E310 to my Linksys WRT54GS with a TRENDnet wireless N USB adapter. It sees the router, it connects, I show strong signal strength, but get a "limited connection or no connection" error back from the router...can't get on the Internet. If I use an Ethernet wire and connect it to the router, it can set up a wireless connection with the machine, I can unhook the hardwire, and I'm good to go. But every time I reboot, it won't connect unless I set it up with the hardwire first. Impractical.All other devices attached to the router are fine and connected to the Internet. How can I get the router to maintain the settings for this new connection so it will connect wirelessly when I reboot?
WRT610v2 running latest firmware.xbox 360 sees both the 2.4 network (ssid = network1) and the 5.0 network (ssid network2) when it does its scan.Initially, xbox showed network strength for 2.4 network at 3 out of 4 bars and 5.0 network at 1 out of 4 bars.Connects to 2.4 network just fineWon't pull an ip address and reports "Not connected" when I select the 5.0 network.I tweaked the wireless settings per some suggestions I found in this forum and now it shows the 5.0 network at 4 out of 4 bars signal strength. Also turned security on and off and xbox 360 reported the changes in security on the 5.0 network.So the xbox 360 is definitely seening the 5.0 network. and can tell if it is running WPA2 or not..If it can see the 5.0 network and recognizes what security and network type (infrastructure) is set, would would stop it from connecting to the WRT610n router and getting an IP address? No mac filters or firewalls are set and, again, connects just fine and gets an ip address if I select the 2.4 (network1 ssid) instead.
Just got an HDTV, has a load of fancy internet stuff, but only has a wired connection and I can't put my router in this room, and would rather not have to run a wire up from downstairs.
I'm guessing there is a way of connecting to the wireless on my laptop in this room, connect the laptop to the tv via an ethernet cabe, and bridge the connections or something so that my tv gets the internet from the laptop. That's gotta be possible, no? When I try it tho, the connections bridge, but the tv says "Gateway is not connected, gateway address wrong or unavailable". Using auto IP.
i have a external usb adapter having a detachable antena connecting with the router thorgh wire and is on the roof.. so i can't move it.. its providing me internet. i want to access internet in my home wirelessly. my usb adapter is having a usb port.can i connect this wirelss adapter having male usb port with the wireless router having female usb port in it.. to share the internet at home.
its possible to connect to the internet via usb adapter to my laptop, then connect an access point to my laptop so my ps3 can connect wireless?.....the reason i ask is my connection is on the 3rd floor, which cannot be moved, while my ps3 is in the basement and barely has a signal and keeps logging out out of psn....
Basically I bought two ethernet adapters from amazon and have connected them up properly to the router and my laptop through my homes plugs. For some reason my laptop cannot pick up any internet signal from them displaying 'no network access'. When I've run the troubleshoot it occasionally will say that the IP address is not valid. I've tried a variety of different settings but cannot seem to get it to work.
I have an HP Pavilion desktop computer running Windows XP Home Edition. It used to never get internet wirelessly for some reason until one day i played around with it. I don't remember how but I got it to go online and it worked ever since. Just recently i have moved from my previous home and have finished setting up both of our computers. The Vista (the one i am using to write this) is an Ethernet connection and is having no problem connecting to the internet. Although, the XP for some reason will not connect to the internet. The adapter will find the network but when i type in the WPA2 it tries to connect but i think it times out or something. I have tried several solutions and none have worked. My father has a Toshiba laptop and he is currently having no issue with connectiong wirelessly to the internet. Our old verizon router stopped working when we attempted to set it up after the move, so verizon came and istalled a new one. It is secured with a WPA2 code whereas our older one was secured with a WEP code. I think it might be a problem with either the router or the wireless adapter itself (which is a Linksys Wireless-B Network Adapter). Also, when i logged into my router manager thing, I noticed that under the network, it said the XP was an inactive Ethernet Connection and not Wireless.
Here are some of the XP's specs: Hewlett-Packard Pavilion Intel[R] Pentium[R] 4 CPU 3.40 GHz 0.99 Gb of Ram
I have just purchased a new laptop (HP Pavilion G series) for my studies at university. The wirless works fine when I am connect to my network at home, but I am only able to connect to the university's network when an ethernet cable is plugged in. Everybody else I know, who has a similar setup to myself has no problems connecting to the network without the ethernet cable and I was curious as to why this might be.
I am running on Windows 7 and the wifi adapter is a Realtek RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n
As I say I am quite a rookie when it comes to computers
When I install a micro-wifi-usb 802.11n with "Realtek RTL8188CU" on a old notebook with Windows XP I get maximum 1.5 to 2Mbits/s. Though installed on a newer notebook with Windows 7 I get 30Mbits/s.Other wifi-usb, Cisco Linksys WUSB100v2 does work on that Windows XP machine at 30Mbit/s, but the dongle is much larger The router Cisco WRT320N is just 5meters away and I always have excellent signal strength.I tried some other drivers without any luck. On the site of Realtek I don't find any driver except with some letter diverence at the end of RTL8188CU, which I also tried.
