Windows 7 And N Wireless Card Drops Network Connection?

Dec 27, 2011

I got my wife a new laptop in October, and it runs on windows 7, since the 25th of december she has been having connectivity issues with her wireless card. She had 2 bars on her signal strength, and I wanted to take the signal strenght out of the equation, so I got a N range booster to put in the room she is usually in, she now has a signal strength of 5 bars. However she still loses connection to the internet.

ISP is Bell Fibe 25 Router is the bell modem/router in one. My son's Laptop goes in that room, and has no issues. I have made sure the drivers are up to date on both the router/modem, and on the laptop itself. The only thing I cna think of is that it is the card itself that is faulty.

Wireless Connection Drops Out With Windows 7?

Mar 13, 2011

I recently bought a new HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC and have been experiencing problems when connecting to my personal wireless network. It seems that whenever I'm downloading anything or using the connection extensively I'll lose internet connection and the wireless icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen will show an orange star to indicate that connections are available. However if I go to available networks I can immediately reconnect to the network I was on.

I have other notebooks that run on XP that do not have this issue and use the connection without a problem. Also when I connect my notebook directly to my belkin router via Ethernet cable the connection has issues. I'm running my computer on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and my Wireless adapter is an Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi adapter which appears to have up to date drivers.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 / 1390 WLAN Mini-card - Wireless Drops And Can't Find Network Again

Oct 28, 2007

I have new Inspiron 1720 running Vista with the Dell wireless 1390 WLAN mini-card.  I will be connected to the wireless network just fine, but it will then disconnect.  My problem is I cannot re-connect to it without having to do a total restart.  I go to the place to refresh the list, and it finds nothing.  I ask it to repair the network, and it can't becasue it cannot find a network.   I have at least 4 other networks in the area that I can normally see, and none appear when I hit the refresh button.  But I totally restart the system, and everything works fine again (until it drops again).

3g Network Card Drops When LAN Enabled

Mar 1, 2011

I had it working fine up until i decided to install a new harddrive on my xp pro machine. but to the point, when i connect to the 3g card its fine, but if i try to enable the lan at the same time it disconnects my 3g card. my problem isnt how to network two computers, its how to get lan and a usb modem working simultaneously. i have tried to enable ics, then reboot. same results. if i can get the lan to stay on while the 3g card is on i have the rest is some kind of setting somewhere. maybe i need to install windows 2003 server or something like that.

Frequent Connection Drops Running Windows 7?

Apr 23, 2011

I am running Windows 7, Time Warner Cable is my ISP, I am using a Netgear wireless router, and a netgear wireless card to access the signal

The problem started a week ago. While playing online video games (Battlefield 2), I will get a message on my screen telling me theres a problem with my connection. Sometimes it will only freeze up for 5-7 seconds, and sometimes it is up long enough to make me lose connection to the server.I am not having ping problems, the server is not kicking me for that.All background programs are closed, ive tried restarting everything I have thats related to internet and my computer.

Cisco Wireless :: WLC4402 Drops Network Connection

Dec 6, 2012

We have 2 AIR-WLC4402-K9 devices at a remote location that will both drop their network connections some undetermined time after a reboot.  We cannot reach them via telnet, SSH or HTTP.  In fact, we cannot even ping them once they drop connection.  The only cure we've found so far is to power-cycle the controllers.  The controllers are in separate rooms and connected to separate switches.  We've confirmed the links are configured as trunks and have the correct speed/duplex settings.  I tried updating the IOS & boot loader on one of them but that had no effect on the problem.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 2.4Ghz Network Drops Connection 5Ghz

Oct 15, 2011

2 days ago my e1000 died, so I went big and bought the e4200 (due to newness, its already loaded with Firmware 1.0.03 build 14) to aleviate my networking woes.  I'm running into an issue where I'm utilizing both the 2.4Ghz bands and the 5Ghz band.  My desktop as an AE1000, and I'm utilizing that on the 5Ghz band.  Everything else in the house (Dell laptop, 2x iPhone 4 and an HP printer) are all connecting to the network wirelessly.
I have had 0 network issues with regards to my wired connections, or my 5Ghz connection.  But my 2.4Ghz connection will continuously be unavailable.  I have both bands set to brodcast, they have different names so my AE1000 can connect via 5Ghz band.  Both yesterday evening, and this morning, my phones, laptop and printer cannot connect, and for the most part, the network doesn't show up on available networks.  When it does show up, the devices can't connect.I'm proficient enough to do the general home networking, but I'm at a loss as to how to fix this, without a daily reboot of the router (which seems excessive and unwarranted for a 2 day old e4200 [or any router to be honest]).

Windows 7 Network Card Not Functioning?

Sep 14, 2012

I have an ASUS M4A785-M MB with an on-board LAN and all of a sudden stopped working yesterday. I have it connected to a 4-port D-Link network switch which has one other computer connected, and the switch is hard-wired to my wireless router.

Here are the trouble-shooting steps I've tried:

- uninstalling/re-installing the driver
- tried using different wires.
- by-passed the switch
- used the wired connection with the other computer
- tested the wire for my troubled computer on the other computer and it works fine
- pinged the loop-back IP address ( and it tested ok
- bought a new NIC and still no connection

When I go to Network and Sharing Center, it shows my Home GRoup but then has the bid red X from the Home Group to the Internet.

Windows Detects Wrong Network Card

Jun 22, 2011

I run a windows 7 x64 and I am currently running a Intel (r) 82579V gigabit network adapter. The thing is, the driver was made for 82579LM and V versions. Most of the time, my computer reads the adapter as the LM version, in which the ethernet just won't work. Once in a while it gets the V version and everything is alright, but i can't live with such uncertainty. Mostly people suggest i should just buy a new motherboard (?) or a new network adapter, but i'm sure it's a software problem. Shouldn't there be other solutions? The card itself is integrated.

Router Drops PC Connection If There Are Other Hosts On Network

Jul 24, 2011

I have a PC upstairs, let's call it (Peter-PC), my dad has a PC downstairs (Kris-PC) and I just setup a linux home server downstairs as well called (server).Now, Peter-PC is connected through Linksys powerline adapters to the router, and server and Kris-PC are connected directly to the router as well.Peter-PC stays constantly connected to the internet, only until Kris-PC is turned on, then Peter-PC connection goes mental and begins to disconnect, reconnect, can't ping the router. As soon as Kris-PC is turned off,Peter-PC is back to normal.However, if Kris-PC and server are both on, they both operate fine. Seems like Peter-PC is the only unfortunate one.I mean the powerline adapters have been working for over 3 years now, and the Powerline light is flashing meaning they are communicating, I highly doubt it's the adapters.

Internet Connection Drops But Still Connected To The Network

Dec 13, 2011

no matter what device is used to connect to our Linksys WRY54G v2.0 Router, whether it be CAT6, internal wireless card (Intel Wireless LAN (802.11a/b/g/n), or USB wireless card (Linksys AE1000), she drops connections at random and frequent times and has to disconnect the device and reconnect to get internet back. She is still connected to the network though. The issue has been becoming more and more frequent the past few days and has been ongoing for a few months. We are at wits end with the issue. I looked on Linksys' website for updated firmware for the router AND the AE1000, no new firmware and same driver that is installed for the AE1000. We have tried to enable Multimedia Environment, Disable 802.11, unchecked "Automatically turn off device to save power", changed router channels from 6 to 1, have uninstalled ALL third party firewalls and AV/Spyware/Malware/Adware removal programs (but not before scanning the system), and lastly tried the DHCP Braodcast Flag Fix.

Laptop Drops Connection When Streaming On Specific Network?

Oct 9, 2011

my laptop, which connects fine to all other wireless networks, has trouble on this one. It can browse the web all day, but the second a large file begins to transfer (video, a file download, etc.) it will drop the connection randomly, usually rather quickly. The computer does not need to be restarted to reconnect, it often reconnects on its own near-immediately, though sometimes I have to go to the system tray and reconnect manually.I thought it was too far from the router, but my tower in the same room connects flawlessly, and going in to the same room as the router doesn't work. This same laptop has been fine on every other network, and every other computer is fine on this network. I've web crawled off and on about this for months, but no one's problem is limited to one computer/network combination.

Linksys Wireless-N Router (WRT160N) / Home Network Router Constantly Drops Connection?

Jan 13, 2012

Often my router drops connection to all my devices. Multiple times a day. It's only for a minute or so, but it's annoying. I'm using a Linksys Wireless-N router (WRT160N) with WEP encryption. I'm running two Windows 7 laptops, LG BluRay player, Apple TV, Xbox 360 (Wired) iPhone 4, and a iPad 2. It doesn't matter if I'm browsing the web, watching Netflix, or playing a game, the connection gets lost. As we speak it happened again. I have no clue on what to do. I've reconfigured it multiple times. Firmware has been updated months ago.

D-Link DIR-615 :: Connection Drops And Network Doesn't Even Show Up On InSSIDer

Oct 12, 2011

I have had my DIR 615 router for about 6 months, and have had no problems. I have a notebook (Sony Vaio) and I also have a Blue-Ray Player and my DirecTV DVR connected by ethernet. Starting a few days ago I was having connectivity issues. At first I could see the network on my Vaio, but the Internet kept coming and going.I did some troubleshooting on the adapter and that seemed to work. Now I am having an issue where every 2 hours or so the wireless drops and the network disappears from the list of available connections on my notebook. I have had my netbook on (connected wireless) and the issues are replicated on that system.

Both of my wired devices do not see any interruption in connectivity. Living in an apartment complex I suspected interference and indeed there are a ton of other networks in range (as per inSSIDer 2.0). As there is no channel that is clearly open, I have set my router to auto channel scan. I also have tried some of the steps outlined in other threads. The thing I am noticing is that when the network connection drops my network (which has a unique name) doesn't even show up on inSSIDer, it just disappears. When working, my network is consistantly in the -25 range on inSIDDer.I should point out also that my notebook is a mere 8 feet from the router, and there are no obstructions.

Dell :: 17R SE 7720 Windows 8 N2230 Drops Wireless Signal

Dec 25, 2012

My new computer was delivered December 21, 2012.  Imagine my surprise that I can't connect to my wireless connection unless I am less than 10 feet away from the AT& T wireless router.  There are 3 computers 1 floor up and 30 feet away that can connect, so I know it isn't that the signal isn't strong enough.  My Inspiron 9300 that I have had since 2005 can connect and I am using it right now.  Here's my specifics.

17r SE 7720
Windows 8
1 T hard drive
32 G SATA Drive
Inter N-2230
AT&T internet wireless router.

The new computer will hook up when extremely close to the router but it does lose the signal occasionally even though I am only 10 feet away.
