Wifi Home Network Loses All Connection When Connecting Smartphone
Nov 3, 2011
just bought a Wifi DSL Router Lynksys WAG120N and managed to connect all e-gadgets on Wifi the PS3, the Pc and my Laptop, which are all communicating even through shared drives and Mediaserver. Every time that I am trying to connect with my Sony Arc the Wifi for all connected clients is lost and the internet connection stops
my wife and I both have samsung galaxy s2 smartphones that for the last 2 months since purchased worked fine when connected to the d-link network-suddenly,yesterday both phones disconnected and when we tried to connect and entered the WEP key that worked fine previously,neither would connect-I powered both phones off and on as suggested by ATT,but that did not work.
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...
Using my Acer Aspire 5750 at school my wireless connection speed will drop from around 4 Mbps to .30 Mbps. The speed will start out fine from startup and degrade over time. This happens only at school, and only on this laptop using this wireless card. My home network hold its 3Mbps down just fine. My campus has two wireless networks, one is WPA enterprise encrypted and one is open, both exhibit this behavior. Using my network credentials on another machine or using a different wireless card this machine works fine.I've updated to the latest driver and rolled back to previous ones.
This is happening on a fresh install of Windows and on Ubuntu live CD so it is not malware or something along those lines. Spoofing a different MAC address does not change this behavior. The devid is PCIVEN_14E4&DEV_4358&SUBSYS_E040105B&REV_00
It is a Broadcom Wireless N...
What could be causing this problem? Does the NIC not like the access points or vice verse? Are they any settings I should tweak? The drop in speed happens no more than 10 minutes after boot and occurs in both Windows and Ubuntu. I should add that other students don't have this issue so it is not a network wide thing. Other students get around 4mbps down continuously. Using somebody elses credentials on this machine doesn't work either.
It's about a Linksys WRT54G with Firmware: DD-WRT v23 SP2 (09/15/06) std it started resetting it's admin panel settings once every few months, lately it does that every few days, like name of LAN network, name encryption and password of the wireless AP, IP filter setting and so on
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.
My laptop works fine on my network for 80% of the time but the rest of the time I get yellow triangle and the system says limited access. The annoying bit is that when this happens my smartphone is still connected to my wifi network and works perfectly so I can only assume there is a fault on the laptop. I take out the network adapter plug then plug it in and the laptop usually reconnects but sometimes it can take about half an hour!
My laptop is an acer aspire6935 and the operating system is windowsvista home premium. The wireless router is connected to a desktop via a yellow data cable.
I recently purchased a WRT120n router to set up wifi in my house. I had installed the software and had the Wifi up and running. However, I am unable to connect to my wifi connection thru my cell phones. It does not connect to any of the smart-phones we have at home (Nexus S, iPhone 3G, )
The wifi connection is working on the laptops (Mac and Windows). Just not connecting to the phones.
I'm currently using a Lenovo V360 and my issue is that my computer, which connects via wi-fi, disconnects from the network randomly. The network will be completely removed from the list of available networks. The other networks available will still be visible. I tried turning off the wi-fi button on my laptop and turning it back on, but the list of available networks still does not include the network I was recently connected to. The only way to see the network on my Lenovo is to restart the computer. The connection works perfectly after I restart. It is definitely not the network's problem because I am still connected to the same network with my other laptop. If necessary, my laptop runs Windows 7, my router is a D-Link, and the encryption is WPA.
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.
I've recently had to switch to a wireless network, buying a brand new Netgear DGN220v3 (which works great, by the way) and an Asus PCE-n15 network adapter for my desktop pc. Now, the signal could be slightly better, but it's pretty fine and quite fast when available. The problem is sometimes the adapter just seems to "forget" all the active connections and doesn't see any connection at all for a couple of minutes. It's updated with realtek drivers, I've tried using the Asus utility as well (which installs realtek drivers anyway + a -not so useful- program)
I have a problem with a client/server app: It is a web application that resides in C:inetpubwwwroot (aspx pages) of the server. The client is a Windows app that is installed into Program Files on the clients and when running receives commands from a webservice on the server. When I install it on a PC on our own test environment it communicates with the server perfectly, no matter how many times I re-boot the client, the connection never goes down. When I give the client to someone on a separate domain, they install it and everything is OK. However, once they reboot the PC (Windows XP) the connection to the server fails. The can still ping the server from the PC, they can even see the web service is up and running by typing into a browser but the connection now fails. If I get them to uninstall the client all and re-install, it is fine again. As I say, it is a reboot that breaks it (communication to the web service that is.) My problem is that I am completley blind to the setup on the client-side of those I give it to (I only email it to them, I have only been in the site once). The PC is obviously on a domain (with static ip addresses I assume) but other than that i know nothing. I think it is something similar to the way when you map a drive in Windows and then when you reboot it has lost the connection and you have to re-map it.
I have a Samsung SCX-4623FW All-in-One Printer that will not maintain a connection to my wireless router a Linksys WRT160N. Samsung technicians have not been able to assist after multiple calls. They sent me to a printer repair store which reported they had no problem with the printer working on their wireless network. When I used the setup disk initially it would connect the printer to the network and I could print from my laptop wirelessly, but the connection never continued working more than a few hoursThe router has no problems in connecting to 3 different computers.
My friend had a wireless network in his house, laptops can connect to it easily. For some reason, smartphones and itouch units can not connect. When the network password is input, the symbol that shows it is connecting continues to spin as if it is trying but it never does. Is this some kind of security issue or setting?
The laptops and the desktop in my home connect perfectly fine to our wifi, but all other devices like our iPhones, iPads, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, and a 2006 hp laptop will either show a connection, but the connection doesn't actually work, or there will be a broken connection shown to our wifi. All these devices (except the Nintendo devices[only because we haven't tried it out]) will connect and perform on wifi elsewhere.We have a d-link router?
I recently purchased a Samsung Smartphone which works great but will not connect to my secure wireless network. I have an older D-Link DIR-625 rev a draft N router with other devices connected to it. I am using Network Magic software which makes adding new devices simple. When I turn on the phone's Wi-Fi setting, it scans for local networks, and recoginizes mine. I add the correct passphrase but the phone will not connect. I am using MAC filtering on my network so I went on to the admin page and added the phone's mac id. Still no connection. This smartphone is not very smart.
Here's the layout: Cable modem in the basement. Several devices in which I'd prefer a wired connection in the basement. Upstairs on the 1st and 2nd floor of the house are many devices in which wifi is fine or preferred.Here's the problem: As you might guess, wifi is weak upstairs and certainly on the patio and 2nd floor. I have an access point upstairs that I've experimented with but it is flaky.
My Wifi network has a wpa2 password that is a random string of characters and numbers and yet last month a rogue IP Address kept popping up on my DNS list. It has to be coming from my neighbor who's bedroom is about 15 feet away from my router. So unless someone is sitting out on my front lawn to do this then it must be him.I've been looking for software that will notify me when a connection my router is attempted and kudos if it also asks my permission first would be great.There are wifi packet sniffers out there like Cain&Abel, Airsnort, that sort of thing but I am not quite savvy enough nor do I want to turn this into a complicated hobby but just need a basic warningin case something gets past my passwords again
I have ADSL modem in my workplace that is connected to a switch and other workplace computers are connected to this switch so the ADSL internet is shared in LAN network.(in each of computer I set default Gateway to ip of modem .....)I want to dial my workplace from home and then use of workplace internet or connect to workplace LAN.(such as VPN or Port Forwarding or I don't know...)
Is there any way to disable router devices from connecting to your network? For example I want people to connect ethernet cables to their laptops, ps3s, pcs, etc but not to routers. How would one go about doing that?
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.
I have a desktop connected to internet broadband provider by a ADSL router with one extra connection to a landline phone.I have a samsung stv LA46D550 with lan port. i woulike to connect TV to the internet provide so that I can browse in TV.what extra hardware and cables do I require(with specifications).also a diagram how to connect these
my desktop has windows 7
TV LCD TV
of coursse I have connected TV to my desktop through an HDMI connector and can use TV screen as either a CLONE monitor to desktoop lor additional monitor to desktop.is this enoiugh or should I connect broadband ADSL router to TV through a router.I prefere wired connections rather wireless.
How the password is correct, the firmware is updated, it finds the home network but when I press connect it tries a few seconds then says unsuccessful
the unit itself is Pandigital Novel 7" the router is a Dynex Wireless router with : WPA/WPA2Personel(PSK) Encryption is : TKIP +AES 802.11e QoS is on Wireless mode is both g and b Wifi protection has been both on and off trying to connect SSID is correct and broadcasting.
We got the thing so her ha;f blind mom can play a few games, but I need to connect to download then, either that or know how to download them to the computer then transfer them to the Pandigital?
I have 6 computers connected in LAN network. In one of the machines(client_1) i have installed the VMWARE.VMWare and Clinet_1 are talking to each other whereas VMWare and other clients are not getting connected. I tried various solutions from the internet but all in vain...i would like to have vmware as another machine in my LAN with incoming and outgoing connections to access files.
I just installed my new TV by Samsung UA55D6400. it's great. I understand that it can be connected to local home net. it has Wireless LAN Built-in BU no Wireless LAN Adapter Support. What I have to buy and install in order to connect it to the local net and also stream movies to it?
I have a cable wireless router in the ground floor lounge and have set up a home wireless network. In the upstairs study we have two desktop computers connected to the router via the wireless network. I have a laptop computer used around the house and garden which also uses the wireless network.A laser printer and an inkjet printer are both connected to one of the computers in the study via USB and are shared with all computers.This means that the computer with the printers connected must by running if anyone requires prints. Both printers have USB and Ethernet ports – but running a network cable to the router downstairs is impractical.Is there a way of connecting the printers directly to the network and leave them powered up so they can be used by any of the computers. I am hoping that there is some extra hardware that will enable me to do this perhaps via wireless.Or – would it be possible to use mains Powerline Network adaptors – with one adapter connected by Ethernet cable to the router and other adaptors connected by cable to each printer.
I'm in university halls, using the university wireless network. The network seems to be a large number of routers all with the same SSID on the same network.Usually my connection is great; but sometimes my computer decides to switch to the router from another flat. A few minutes ago my wireless config utility told me I was connected to the flat 24 router. I am now connection to the flat 26 router. It wouldn't be much of a problem, only it's give or take, around 140 times slower because of how far away it is. Heres a quick comparison of the speeds:ad Connection: (The ping here is very mis-leading, it took several minutes to calculate the ping and several more minutes simply to start the download whereas on the previous test it was instant)Here is one I took in December which shows how bad the ping can get:How do I tell my computer to ignore those other routers with the same SSID? They have different MAC addresses, is there something I can do with that? Windows can't tell the difference, I have to do it through the driver software that came with my Edimax wireless card, it recognises each router seperately but ultimately it always recognises it primarily by it's SSID. Sometimes it sticks to the good one, sometimes it changes every few minutes and I have to manually change it back and it is very frustrating, can't it just ignore the bad connection completely?
I can't login to change any of the router settings and the router doesn't have any ethernet ports for students to use, so I need a solution from the PC end (If I could i'd simply change the SSID to something slightly different so it didn't clash, then there would be no problem). The router is literally right outside my door, but my computer insists on switching to the one 50 metres away instead
