Windows 7 PC Crashes On Wireless Router When Mac Connects

Nov 7, 2011

I saw a thread from early 2010 which described the issue I am currently having to a T. I am on a Belkin Wireless G with Mimo router and it runs perfectly either on LAN or WLAN, until my new roommate's MacBook gets on there at the same time. As soon as the MAC connects, I get a blue screen of death and the PC restarts. I have been battling this issue for over a week now and have absolutely narrowed it down to the Mac/wireless area.

I have already uninstalled/reinstalled my wireless drivers and thought that had fixed the issue(it worked fine for 4 days), until the roommate returned from out of town and connected the Mac to the Wireless....then WAMMO, like clockwork, back came the BSoD. This seems like a very unique problem, as I have done many searches online and the one I mentioned on here is the only one I could find that accurately described my issue.

For reference, I have posted the link to the previous case below. Unfortunately, no solutions, other than reinstall drivers (which I have already done) are posted. I tried everything in that thread and my settings appear to all be the same as his. Is it possible this is just some rare Windows 7 glitch that has never been resolved?

Internet Connection Crashes When Flatmate's Laptop Connects?

Dec 17, 2012

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, 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?

TP-Link ADSL2+ Wireless :: TD-W8968 - Printer Controller Utility Crashes Windows 8

Feb 13, 2013

Region : Poland
Model : TD-W8968
Hardware Version : V1
Firmware Version : TD-W8968_V1_120926

Recently I've switched to Windows 8 Pro 32bit (from Win XP) and since that moment I have problems with USB Printer Controller Utility. I was able to print test page successfully but printing larger documents (for example PDF file, about 15MB of data needs to be transferred to the printer) results in blue screen of death. Additionally if USB Printer Controller Utility is started "automatically wit Windows" switching user results in BSOD about 30 seconds after the second instance of Printer Controlled is loaded. Right now I've not found any way to use USB Printer connected to TD-W8968 while using W8. WhoCrashes states that the crash cause was Printer Controller Utility. It is very easy to reproduce the crash.

Both firmware and the utility was downloaded from [URL] According to this webpage TD-W8968_V1_USB Printer Controller Utility( For Windows) works in Windows 8.

Windows 7 - Laptop Crashes / Reboot And No Wifi?

Jun 6, 2012

A friend of mine has experienced a crash with her Toshiba Satellite while watching a vid on the net.It froze completely so she did a battery pull and re-booted the system.After booting up Windows 7 after the password screen the laptop crashed completely.

The same problem occurred once again so she loaded Windows in safe mode with networking. The computer seemed to function normally so she rebooted into normal mode.Since then everything appears to be functioning except the Wifi (that was used in conjunction with an ADSL net connection).The LED where the Wifi switch is no longer lights up and no Wifi connection can be made.I suspect that as a result of the initial crash the connection settings may have been reset but perhaps the Wifi in the laptop itself has just died and needs to be repaired.

I know it could just be corrupted drivers or something - I updated the drivers for something called "Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter" using the auto update feature in Windows Device Manager but it didn't solve the problem.

Wgr614 V6 Wireless Router Only Allows One Device Or It Crashes?

Feb 3, 2013

I have a wgr614 V6 router, yes its old. I had 3 devices connected to it just fine before without any issues. But now It only allows my laptop, when I try to connect with my ipod touch or desktop, not only does it fail, the entire network crashes and my laptop loses it and its gone. It then takes about 2 minutes to come back up. So whenever I attempt to connect with another device the network crashes. so right now only my laptop is connected.I downloaded & updated to the newest firmware, did not work.I tried resetting the router, and made the network all over again, did NOT work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 Router Crashes When Copying Files Wirelessly

Dec 28, 2012

I have two mac laptops and am trying to copy a directory with a number of PDFs in it. The files aren't particularly large, but there are many of them. At some point in the process the router stops and must be turned off and on before it will respond again either wirelessly or wired. I have tried the same experiment with both devices wired and the router works fine. I have tried changing the MTU, channel, beacon setting, etc. as other forum posts have tried. I tried reflashing the firmware, resetting to factory defaults and reconfiguring. So far no success. Cisco support wants me to return the router. Frankly I'm at the point of considering the former Linksys/Cisco products complete rubbish. I am going to have to buy a new router even if I return this one since I can't be without a router for any length of time.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Firmware Ver.4.21.4 Crashes WRT54G V2

Sep 5, 2011

In hopes of fixing some "flaky" connection issues with my WRT54G V2 Wireless Router, I downloaded and applied the new firmware version released on 08/18/2011, Ver.4.21.4 for my Version 2 Router. I downloaded, went through the application process using the router's firmware update process, it said it was successful and then the router restarted and didn't work. Couldn't ping the address, constant flashing Power light, no response at all from router. Tried again, same result. Performed hard reset, same result. Tried a few other recovery techniques found on the web with no success. Finally I did the process found here [URL] This reset the router and I re-uploaded this same 2011 version. Router still broken. I ran through the process again after downloading an older version of the firmware, specifically version V3.1_4.00.7, the upload ran, and the router worked again! This was proof to me that the newest version completely BRICKED my router. I'm so relieved I was able to reset the router and manually recover, but most will never try this. I recommend Cisco retest this ASAP and pull the new release for the V2 router until they get this resolved!

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GL V1.1 Firmware 4.30.7 Crashes Browsers?

Aug 29, 2006

I am attempting to setup a wireless access pointand want to deny access to a group of IP addresses. When I go to Wireless, MAC setup, Deny or Allow, and select "Edit MAC Address List" my browser crashes. I have tried this on two different Linux systems and three browsers, Firefox, Mozilla, and Seamonkey.Tech Support tells me to downgrade to Firmware version 4.30.2, the only compiled version available on the Linksys website, but with no way to go back to 4.30.5 if the problem isn't fixed or if worse problems come up I am reluctant to try this fix, The only other suggestion Tech Support offered was to replace my WRT54GL with a WRT54G.

Cisco Wireless :: WAP4410N Firmware Update Crashes Router

Sep 23, 2010

I recently upgraded the firmware from to and when the router rebooted the interface was missing many items.  On the basic setup page the boxes were missing to set the local ip address, subnet mask and anything below that.  On the Wireless Security page the security mode box was half it's size and did not have any options in it.  The wireless isolation wpa algorithm, preshared key and key renewal boxes were missing too.  I rebooted the router and still got the same thing.  I was able to get into administration and reset to the factory default.  Once the router rebooted I was unable to get into the interface at all.  It wouldn't come up at all. The power and light were blinking but I was unable to connect to it.  I tried to connect with and the one I had set manually but no luck with either.  I was able send back the router for an exchange with Cisco.  I received the new one today.  It started up and everything worked great. I decided to try the firmware upgrade again.  I went from the firmware version that was on there(I didn't right down)  to and the upgrade worked as the other 3 I have.  I than tried the upgrade and I got the same thing as the other router I sent back. I have 3 other routers in place that I will not be upgrading at this point.  I should not have tried the upgrade again on the one today but being a bank the examiners like everything up to date and it's part of the monthly check.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V3 - Network Crashes When No Devices Are Connected?

Nov 6, 2011

For a while now, my wireless network at home has been very unreliable. I posted on these forums before, asking for assistance to fix crashes that seemed to be random. I was largely unsuccessful, and the problem continued. However, as I continued to experiment with different methods to keep my network up and running, I noticed that as long as I had at least one device connected to the network around-the-clock it never crashed. This was easy enough, as I own an iPod touch and a dock (I would leave it sitting it the dock unlocked all the time). But it's annoying to never be able to leave the house with it, and I'm ready to finally get a solution to the problem once and for all. I would prefer not getting a new router, but if worse comes to worse I will.

To sum it up:
 -Works perfectly (when up) at full speed, never crashes unless there are no devices connected to it.
-When it does crash, it is very difficult to 'coax' it back into working again; it's been down for weeks at a time before.
-For some strange reason (and maybe this is a clue), newer game systems such as a Nintendo DSi or PS3 can make it start working again. I, of course, own neither of these.
-I'm using a WRT160N V3, latest firmware as far as i know.

Home Network :: Windows 7 VPN Connects But (No Internet Access)

Feb 18, 2012

I am running a VPN server on my desktop at home, with all the default settings, and i checked the box that allows clients to connect over the internet. this is win7 x64 computer. I opened up port 1723 with PPTP protocol on my E4200 router.On the client i am running win7 x64 as well. I am able to connect to the vpn, from another internet connection, but there is no local network acess. It says the status is No Internet Access. and the IP that is assigned is the 169.x.x.x one that windows defaults when it doesnt find a dhcp server.How can i get the client to connect with full local network access. Right now being connected to the vpn, it means nothing, i have no access other than being "connected".

Have updated all the drivers, uninstalled and re-installed devices, reset ip, dumped the dns several times, etc.So here is the ipconfig stuff....ignore the cable connect I only have the wifi on at the moment. I have stared at this to the point where I know naathing .Is the tunnel adaptor the indication that the card is out? Oh and I tried taking out IPV 4 on both channels and nothing so I left one with 4 on and the other with it off just as something else to try. [code]

D-Link DIR-655 :: Windows 7 Laptop Connects To Network But Not Internet?

May 24, 2011

I have a wireless network set up in our small office.  I just bought the DIR-655 and installed it (did have a very old Netgear router).  I currently have two wireless printers, a MAC and a couple of iPhones that can connect to the network and internet.  My desktop is plugged in and also connects fine.The BOSS just came in with his fairly new Win7 laptop and I connected it to the network, however, no matter what I try, it won't connnect to the internet.  I can see his laptop in the network, it can see my computer and it says that it is connected to the network.  It also says that it is not connected to the internet.  I ran the troubleshooting (by clicking on the "X" between the network and the internet in the Network and Sharing Center) and it said it couldn't find the problem.  The Win7 laptop has no problems connecting to the old network, nor any others that it encounters.

Furthermore, we cannot ping any as well.  Also, while connected the Windows 7 machine is still able to access internet site as if split-tunneling was configured, which its not!  I've seen alot of people posting on the internet about the same issue, but I have not run into any resolutions that work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 Crashes Fairly Predictably After Particular Type Of Operation

Oct 27, 2011

I have an E1000 that is connected to my main computer via Ethernet and have found that it crashes almost every time I run a particular type of operation.I'm testing software and running PHP scripts that invoke cUrl to fetch data from a few different web services via SSL. I would say that at least every other time one of these operations begins, the router crashes -- I am unable to ping its internal IP and I have to power-cycle it to get back up and running.
I don't experience the crashes in any other context and I use the router all day long. I'm one release behind on firmware but the release notes on the most recent version don't suggest that upgrading would make any difference -- no mention of any bugs fixed, for example.

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.

The only way I can get a wireless connection is to use wep. How can I get the better security and speed of wpa2 back?

Cisco 15.x ISR G2 Router Crashes / Hangs When Doing NAT

Jul 10, 2012

Any issues on Cisco ISR / ISR G2 routers running 15.x  code while doing NAT for large quantities of users (3000+) involving lock ups? This seems to be an ongoing issue for a customer. The symtom is present on 2811, 2911 and a 3945. The 3945 never spikes over 10% processor or memory utilization, yet still has these issues. The routers have been tested running 15.0(1)M5, 15.0(1)M7 and 15.1(4)M4 which all showed simular results. Other router side services are running such as NetFlow v9 to two destinations. Another interesting symtom, doing a "show ip nat translations" command will crash the router if executed at its peak usage period. NAT is to a single IP (sourced from outside interface), not a pool.
