My lap top, about a year and half old (Asus g73sw), has decided to begin randomly dc'ing me from wifi networks.I'll be online and all of the sudden web pages stop loading and my wifi connection either is totally lost, or is usually available but with "limited access".I have already made sure my wifi capabilites are completely turned on, tried connecting to other networks (same problem), and updating wireless drivers. In addition, i bought a wireless internet adapter (thinking it could possibly be my wireless card going bad) and the problem was not solved at all.
Readers Digest Version: Worked fine yesterday nothing has change in my connection settings, router settings or server settings. (Computer is located at work in an AD setup, I am first level IT Support here) Router shows as it is getting a connection from the network card which is a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller with latest drivers right from realtek (and asus version tried too). But is not connecting at 10/100 or 1000. (Have two connection sources to test to).
What I have tried:
- Tried it on a 10/100 router and a gigabyte switch - Multiple cat5's - Performing a clean uninstall of the driver and reinstall both from the Asus and Realtek websites of both drivers. - Disabling the lan rebooting, enabling he lan and trying to connect. - Disabling power save multiple times. - Checking bios for any lan options (which there was surprisingly very little options) - Latest bios firmware - Tried changing the duplex to 10/100 for the hell of it!
May try:- Reinstalling windows. I had this problem a couple weeks ago, I went into the bios and enabled PXE boot when into windows and it was suddenly working as usual again. Went back to bios disabled PXE and it was still working fine. I did it again today to no avail....
I have Asus laptop that will not connect to the internet. It finds wireless networks and will not connect. It keeps saying identifying network and then says unsucessful. It was working fine and then just stopped working and will not reconnect.
I have an ASUS laptop and wifi is turned on by fn+f2, on the laptop and other devices like ipod touches can connect to wifi but my laptop can't. When you click where the bars of how strong the wifi is it says No connections are available. It does work with an ethernet cable, however I've tried almost everything I know and wifi still doesn't work. It just stopped working yesterday.
windows was unable to connect dlink (router) is message i receive on my laptop after setting my son's nintendo 3ds to the wifi connection. internet connection is otherwise fine on other devices in home.
my laptop (asus) has been having issues with my WiFi. On startup, the laptop will (usually) connect to the internet fine, but after a few minutes, usually without any specific cause, it will disconnect from the internet, and the toolbar indicator will go from full signal (full bars) to no bars and a yellow triangle, saying limited access. When I try to reconnect, it will say "connecting" for a few seconds and then will say "cannot connect". I have to leave it for a few minutes every time before it will randomly reconnect until the next incident... My other two pc's (one Windows 7 and one Windows xp) do not have this issue, but sometimes other wireless devices in the house (iphone, ipad) will have a problem where the WiFi indicator will show full bars but I will not have internet access. I have to disconnect and reconnect in order for it to work. Again, it happens sporadically with no obvious cause...

How do I improve the Wi-Fi reception on a laptop? My visually impaired friend purchase a new laptop...an Asus X73E-BH51 17.3" Laptop with 2nd Gen Intel Core i5-2430M with Turbo Boost 2.0 8GB DDR3 640GB HDD. She is happy with the purchase. However, the wireless signal strength on her machine never seems to go higher than three bars, while on my laptop (a different make) sitting next to hers is up to five bars and working very quickly. I feel terrible having recommended this laptop based on research done by another friend the previous year. Is there a way to make her laptop receive the wireless signal at a higher strength? "This laptop should go like the wind with 8GB RAM and turbo boost,but, it loads slow as molasses. She is able to Skype with folks, but,often the video breaks up or is otherwise not clear.
A few days ago my internet suddenly stopped working. I plugged in the ethernet cord and everything worked fine. Checking the properties in the device manager showed the device was working properly, I also tried resetting it to make sure it was enabled but it did not work.
Upon troubleshooting, the "Windows Network Diagnostic" said the problems was that the Wireless adapter was not turned on. Using the switch on the front of the laptop as well as the function keys does nothing. Usually a graphic pops up showing if the WiFi is on or off, changinging transparent to show the WiFi is disabled. Now when I turn the switch on it always appears transparent, effectively going from off to off
So I know the computer reads both the function keys and the switch on the front but both methods never actually turns the adapter on. I just finished a system restore and nothing has changed
i own an Asus X50R laptop..i can't get internet on it..I have wireless broadband and it should be able to pick up on it but it doesn't.. in the device manager it has nothing there for it??it does have ethernet controller.
i have an asus laptop that had a rogue virus...i brought it back to zero to the manufacturers settings...now i cant use wireless i lose connection when i take the cord out of the (phone jack looking like thingy) to my router (netgear) how do i use the wireless or find a connection?
I built a desktop to replace my laptop and set it aside for two weeks. So I go back to the laptop and it says the networks available but I can't connect to the router. It reminds of the first time I wired a network at work. All the wireless info seems to be right I went to my RT-nu Asus router and reset that. That seems to be OK. DCHP is OK password for the WPA seems OK. I did upgrade the firmware to the router but that worked ok. That won't have affected the laptop in anyway would it? I do have a preprogram of WIN 8 but its not telling I have to buy it yet. Whoa, how could it if I can't get on the net. Do you think that might be it? Everything on the laptop works well otherwise and it's not informing to but Win 8.
we have 2 laptops in the house and one console, One laptop and the console are fine, but the other laptop disconnects from the internet every few minutes, both laptops are connecting wirelessly, the router settings and modem are fine,
there is a similar thread a few down that I saw. They suggested going into power management and disabling the shut down for network adapters. I did that and it didnt solve anything. So, on to my problem.It started a few days ago. Whenever I closed my laptop, put it into sleep, or hibernation, the connection to the wifi would be dropped and I would be forced to reconnect. I know it cant be my wifi because I did some tests at 3 separate locations and all resulted in the same effect. After closing my laptop, the wifi is dropped. I installed some updates from Microsoft. One in particular added the Remote Desktop Protocol 8.0. I doubt this did anything, but I figured I'd let you know. I would like to avoid have to re-install my OS and unfortunately my last back-up was a few months ago.
Lastly, my router has been doing something strange. Maybe a week ago, the signal radius seemed to have shrunk. I used to receive wifi all around my house, but now I only seem to get it when I am within 7 feet of my router. I updated the firmware. but the range is still small.
My Asus X53E laptop says I have a conflicting IP address. I should be the only computer on my network and able to access my internet. I have had my credit used up before but Telstra said this isn't possible. How can I stop any neighbour or anyone else accessing my laptop and internet
I just bought a new Asus laptop and when I try to connect to the intenet through the router on my desktop, it doesn't let me access. The laptop picks up the router, Cisco by the way, Fast Penguin, but shows the word "limited" when I try to connect.
I'm using a Windows 7 ASUS laptop, with a Netgear RangeMax Wireless Router model WPN824v2. I can connect to the internet when I am connected directly to the router, but as soon as I take the ethernet cable out, my computer can't detect anything. On device manager, under the network adapter tab, there are two items.Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20) Atheros AR9002WB-1NG Wireless Network Adapter.The wireless network adapter has a small yellow exclamation mark on its icon."Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)" [code]
I bought the Asus N65U about 9 days ago. I had a terrible time trying to install it and using the automatic install it kept failing. I followed the directions and it kept telling me that 2 or more wired connections were detected. I only had the cable modem plugged in to the wan port and then the laptop directly to the router as the picture specified. I skipped it and did the QIS from the web interface and I got the router to work and everything is connected now. We are having a lot of issues with the connection dropping and on my desktop upstairs it is really slow (2mbs) and we currently have Time Warner 15 Mbs. My wife's laptop gets 20Mbs from speedtest .net but when watching videos and normal surfing it is slow. This is the same on my PC. Is there a setting or a way I can configure this to get this to work? I paid a decent amount of money and based off of good reviews I bought it but it is very unreliable.
I also tried to connect my work computer to it and it was good until I had to connect through a VPN to get to my work and from that point on I had to shut down the connection as it wouldn't stay online.
So he has a Laptop which keeps disconnecting from his router but the time between the disconnects are completely random, sometimes it will be 10 seconds and other times it will be 4 hours.I have tried to sort it by the obvious ways of updating drivers, repair connection ect but nothing seems to work. Even when connected via an Ethernet cable the problem persists.I have kinda contained the problem to his laptop or the router they are using because the other laptop they have never disconnects and works perfectly fiine.
Basically, my brother has to use a laptop other than his PC to do some work on, now whenever that laptop connects, it disconnects my PC. I can reset the internet, get about 10mins before it disconnects again. We have in total, 3 PC's, 3 laptops that use the internet. It's fine whenever that laptop is not on. I have tried the method of giving everything it's own IP incase it's an issue, but no change. Also tried the resetting anything simultanously etc.
Facebook disconnects on my iPhone. I was part of a tagging game and now I can't get into FB on my phone. I now realize that mylaptop has been disconnecting for over 12 months and it is when I have FB open. My laptop is xp and I use Mozilla. I use FB for my online business.
I have recently moved home and my laptop loses connection to my router all the time! This usually happens, roughly every 10-15 minutes. I have contacted my ISP and they have told me there is nothing wrong, but I beg to differ. My xbox 360 is further away from my router and it doesnt lose connection as much
I am having the problem that my Laptop, despite full wireless signal, sporadically disconnects from the internet. I hardly realize it until I talk to my family on Skype. It happens up to every 15 minutes.
After years of my laptop running flawlessly, I've started having major problems connecting to my router/the internet.I noticed the problems started happening after I did a huge 14gb download.. My computer constantly but randomly disconnects for random intervals of time. If I'm lucky it'll connect just fine, but once it disconnects, it'll most likely not work for quite some time.The other computers/cellphones/etc aren't having any problems with connecting, and it's only my laptop.Sometimes it seems to go on a "Identifying...(Name) No internet access" loop, or it connects to the router, but I get no internet access. And whenever I troubleshoot it, I never get a consistent reason as to why it isn't working.The laptop is an Asus running Windows 7..
i use an asus k50c and used to send wireless network connection from it until recently when i upgraded my OS to windows 7 and changed my antivirus to AVG internet security 2011. whenever i try to set up an ad-hoc network, it doesnt prompt me to turn on internet sharing which used to be there before and now no other computer can connect to my network, though it shows on the wireless network list.
I take my ASUS G53SW laptop and play games on steam. My problem is that my wireless connection is so slow and I am limited to single player only games, I get bored after awhile and would rather play some online games. While trying to update a patch for League of Legends I was getting a whopping 5-7 Kbps download rate. If I try playing an FPS such as Counter strike, or left 4 dead I can join the game fine, but then my ping skyrockets into the 500+ range.
I have a new ASUS N53S laptop and cannot get it to connect to an existing Airport Express network. It can connect to other networks. 1. Other machines can connect to the Airport Express network, including a Toshiba Satellite PC, iPhone, and MacBook. 2. The Passkey is valid and works for the devices identified in (2) 3. When entering the valid passkey, the network rejects it and says the passkey is invalid 4. I have opened the Airport Express utility and changed the passkey to a new one, and all of the devices identified in (2) were able to connect -- but the ASUS laptop still cannot connect, the system still rejects it from the ASUS laptop and says "passkey invalid"
I have an Asus N10E laptop that won't properly connect wirelessly, Windows home ver 2002 installed, Atheros AR5007EG wireless adapter, ATT DSL modem, and Cisco Linksys E2000 wireless router. My other computers connect without difficulty. Connection says it is authenticated and excellent but browsere won't load - "Can't resolve domain name". I also tried to download the TSGSysInfo but avast! says it has a virus.
My laptop normally always works on the wireless network, but every now and then its randomly stopped working and said "identifying network" followed by "could not identify network, unidentified network." When i would troubleshoot it would say stuff about the default gateway and not a valid ip address. THis was fine because it would always just start working on its own in a day or so. However these arnt coming up when i do the troubleshoot this time, and its been over a week and no improvement.Im obviously writing this from the desktop. and the stats below are the desktop stats.

The tablet worked perfectly till yesterday. Now I can not connect to wifi. It says "not in range". I tried forgetting the network, restarted the tablet, restarted the modem, tried putting the wifi network manually, but no success so far. It scans neighboring networks, but not mine. Android 4.0.3
I'm having a problem with my wireless internet connection. Just recently my roommates and I got cable internet and a wireless router for the house. Since connecting to the wireless router, it keeps on disconnecting me and then reconnecting once every 2 minutes about. The disconnection last for only 10 seconds but is very annoying and disrupts everything I'm doing on the internet. What is going on and how can I fix it?
I have a problem with a samsung laptop. Everytime it connects to the home network it disconnects all the other devices on the network. I have reset router (still same problem). Sometimes it will connect for a while and when a download for updates takes place it will automatically disconnect again.
I've been using Frontier on my laptop since the holidays but recently have had trouble with my wireless connection. I can connect automatically but the connection is lost every 10-15 minutes. After a moment the computer reconnects but this prevents me from making any downloads and watching videos.
If I have the wired cable plugged in to my laptop1 the wireless connection works fine. If I disconnect that wired cable then the wireless connection disconnects as well. I can watch this happening when I have the connection dialogs open showing the connection wizard dialogs.The other computers and printer work as expected without disconnects..I also have three other computers including another laptop connected to a switch and router.Here is the connection schematic:
