Wireless Adapter Keeps Turning Off Randomly

Jan 23, 2013

My wireless adapter keeps turning off randomly on my HP G60 120EM.

It will have my connection strength icon on the icon tray and then just randomly display an adapter with a red cross through it.I have made sure that the adapter is not set to turn off on power save but still the problem persists.I thought it could be the adapter being loose inside the laptop but if i give the laptop a small shake it doesn't disconnect and I opened up the laptop and everything seems fine.This is where it gets a bit strange. If I close the laptop lid then open it again, the wireless is fine, but will drop off again about a minute later.

I need to find a way to PERMANENTLY disable the network adapter from turning off to save power. Its this setting here.

Wireless Adapter Loses Connection Randomly

Mar 3, 2011

I just bought a linksys AE1000 usb wireless adapter for my desk top computer because there are no phone lines in the room with the computer for me to connect the dsl modem. In the room with the dsl modem there is the Linksys E3000 wirless router. My desktop will randomly lose connection with the router yet other devices that use wifi in the house work fine (ex: ipod touch, android phone, and xbox 360.) i have went through and reset all devices and gave the desk top priority in the network but it hasnt worked. The desktop uses XP.

Cabling / Cards :: 802.11 B/g USB Wireless Adapter Randomly Stops Working

Sep 3, 2012

I've been using an 802.11 b/g USB wireless network adapter card with my computer to use in conjunction with an AT&T 2Wire router,which is about 20 or 30 feet away off in another room.After about 10 minutes on average, the adapter will stop transferring data suddenly, and it will stay that way for a while. If I do nothing, then sometimes it will start up again after several more minutes, but instead of waiting, I usually will select "Repair" from the Wireless Network Connection pop-up menu, which also works to get it started again. The problem though, naturally, is that after another little while, like about 10 minutes again, it will short out all over again. Sometimes, very rarely, it will stay working for up to maybe an hour, and sometimes, it can short out yet again within a few seconds.

Wireless D-Link DWA-525 Network Adapter Randomly Stopped Working On Desktop?

Sep 10, 2012

The other day I went to a friends house, came back home, booted up my PC, and my wireless network adapter wasn't working. I've tried everything to fix it.It's a D-Link DWA-525 802.11n Wireless PCI netowrk adapter. On device manager it just says 802.11 Wireless LAN Card with a yellow exclamation next to it. And when I check what the error is, it's either error 31 or 52 at different times, depending what I've tried to do to fix it.I tried downloading the driver for it off the D-Link website, nothing happens at all when I install it. I tried taking it out of my computer and plugging it in. I tried enabling it and disabling it on device manager.I noticed one thing, when it's in my computer the green light at the back that says activity next to it isn't on.

Linksys Dual Band Wireless-N USB Adapter - Internet Randomly Drops And Reconnects

Apr 24, 2011

My wireless internet has been acting a bit weird lately. I use a linksys Dual band wireless-N USB adaptor (WUSB600N) to connect to my router, a 2wire 1000sw. I am on windows 7. Recently, the internet has been dropping and reconnecting the connection weirdly; it is apparent in Portal 2 Co-op mode; it says the connection has been lost to the server, and then within 4 seconds, re-joins the server. During that time, the little network icon (the 4 bars in the task bar) says "Identifying."

Netgear WG111 V3 Adapter - Disconnected From The Internet Randomly?

Feb 18, 2013

The problem is basically that my home wifi runs from a router that renews its IP adress every hour or so, and I keep getting disconnected from the Internet for 15 mins. or so every single time and then again not always; sometimes a page fails to load and then the connection is re-established a moment afterwards - it's very random.

The odd thing is that while my desktop Pc gets disconnected for long peiods of time my PS3, phone and laptop all seem to be able to reconnect during other periods of time where the desktop is unable. Also my parents and sister seem to be disturbed in different intervals. This makes me think that besides the annoying short disconnection on every device, my wifi adapter might cause the desktop additional problems reconnecting.

I'm using a Netgear WG111 v3 adapter. I should probably note that when I was running Windows 7 it already gave me trouble installing drivers and I had to run compatibility mode for Vista, and now with Windows 8 Pro 64-bit I had even more trouble, installer crashing and me having to manually go to the Device Manager and search for the install data for the driver. It's only been causing me problems since I bought it and though it works as I write this there is no way for me to know if it goes offline again or not in the next second.

I've recently reformatted my Pc and that didn't change a thing in this context and I've also been in contact with my Internet provider (the largest of such in Denmark, where I live), and they are the ones that told me that the router needs to reaquire a new IP every now and then for security reasons.

Wifi Network Adapter Randomly Gets Limited Connectivity And Freezes?

Apr 25, 2013

I'm having a really annoying problem which is making my laptop almost unusable and a hassle to use. After a while of my laptop being on, my wireless network adapter will suddenly get "limited connectivity", and won't connect to the internet.Disabling and enabling the adapter will cause my computer to freeze, requiring a restart. The same with troubleshooting. The only thing which fixes this is a fresh reboot, however it always occurs again within the hour.Sometimes the entire adapter will randomly just disable itself, and the computer will completely freeze, meaning I have to press the power on/off. Sometimes the adapter will just disappear from Device Manager. Searching for "plug and play" devices will cause it to freeze.

Apart from having to reboot, what also seems to work is disabling the wifi from PC Settings, putting the computer to sleep, then awaking it and turning wifi back on. I've had to do that 6 times whilst typing this post.I've tried flushing my dns, registering it, renewing and releasing. Assigning a static DNS address. All those things. Though I may have done them wrong.Operating system: Originally came with Windows 7 64bit installed, issue began on this.I installed Windows 8 64bit Pro a month ago, did not reset settings. Problem persists[CODE]

Laptops Wireless Capability Keeps Turning Off?

Jan 8, 2012

Im having a problem with my laptops wireless capability; it worked fine, until i tried a hardwried connection (i went over to this center and tried one and it didn't work, so i unplugged it).

Now, I can't connect to any wireless networks unless i do the windows network troubleshooter, which it tells me my laptops wireless capability is turned off; I then have to click on the option to turn wireless capability back on..

I have tried playing in change adapter settings in Network Connections, but nothing is working.. I have tried disabling the LAC and wireless adapter but nothing is working..

I also notice under Local Area Connection that is says "Network cable unplugged". Also in one of the tables of the windows network troubleshooter it shows Network cable unplugged and wireless capability is turned off.. Is my laptop trying to find the hardwire connection all the time so it turns off wireless?

Cabling / Cards :: Wireless Card Not Turning On At All

My girlfriend's computer has quite suddenly developed the problem that the wireless card simply will not turn on.She has an Asus Notebook G60 Vx Series, which has a switch on the front as well as Fn+F2 for turning wireless on/off. Yesterday, she noticed it wasn't working even though the switch was "on", but was able to use Fn+F2 to enable it. Today, neither will work. It simply won't turn on.Ethernet works fine when connected directly to the router. Device manager detects "Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN" as working correctly and drivers as up-to-date.I feel like this must be a software/driver problem, but everything seems to be checking out.

Home Network :: Setting Up A Wireless Router And Turning Of DHCP?

Mar 9, 2012

I have a question regarding setting up a wireless access point on a network. Lets say my router is going to connect to a switch. The switch puts out 192.168.4. addresses. I want the wireless router to do the same. So I turn off DHCP.Everything works fine and everyone can communicate. Here is my question. How do I ever connect back to the wireless router if I need to change the settings? If the wireless routers address is 192.168.1.1 I cannot get back to it since i am now on the 4. subnet. I have also tried changing the router's ip to an address on the subnet such as 192.168.4.100 but on two different routers this didnt work. One didnt me and said there was a conflict with the WAN IP. The other one would not let me get on the internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Turning An E4200 Into Access Point?

Jan 22, 2012

I have broadband internet coming into 1 room of my home. The internet goes through a router I have set up, its a Linksys WRT54G2 (router #1), Firmware version 1.0.04. Everything on this works fine, I'm able to get my TV and laptop in a different room to access the router wirelessly without any inconvenience.In another room I have a regular desktop computer which I would like to get internet on. As well as other devices, so I purchased another router, this time a Linksys E4200 (router #2) in hopes of turning it into an access point.Now I've set up LAN's in the past, using the actual cable plugged into the second router, problem is in this scenario I can't run a cable over to router #2. Both computers use Windows 7. Both router's drivers and firmware have been updated on the Linksys page, all my Windows drivers are updated, etc. I checked other forums for similar questions and although there are some, they date back to 2009 as well as Google which has some websites dating back to 2006! While useful, I wasn't able to find something that details how to solve my problem with my specific setup. I've already gone into router #2 and changed the router's IP to 192.168.1.2 and also turned DHCP off, problem is, once I take that router off into the other room, it doesnt connect to primary network or allow devices to even "see" router #2.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Turning E2000 Into Access Point / Switch?

Dec 6, 2012

we got a At&T Modem/Router upstairs, and then we got a long ethernet cable running from there to the basement. The problem is that this only allows for one LAN connection at a time (an issue for LAN parties and such). I do have an E2000 Linksys router however and I want to be able to use that as like a switch/access point.I am pretty sure this is possible but I have forgotten all of the steps to do it.The att modem/router is running on 192.168.1.254, and my Linksys which is now directly connected is on 192.168.1.1, so I have a different address in that regards.Do I need to edit my Linksys settings now, or do I have to edit the at&t settings?Also I will be using this for Xbox Live at points so will I need to re-open all those ports up on my Linksys, or at least set the DHCP to the Xbox's static IP to keep my NAT good?

Dell :: M1530 - Wi-Fi Erratically Turning On And Off

Jul 29, 2012

The wifi/bluetooth on my Dell XPS M1530 with an Intel 4965AGN wifi adapter erratically blinks off and on, flashing the status on the screen.  This began happening about a year ago, but eventually stopped doing it.  Now it's begun again.  Flashing on and off is intermittent, but it's been happening more and more frequently--5-10 times/hr now.  Sometimes it just flashes on and off once, sometimes, more rarely, 10-15 times.

This happens in Vista, Vista safe mode, as well as Ubuntu run from a USB key.  That leads me to believe that it's a problem with the hardware.  If I turn the wifi switch on the side of the computer off, it does shut the wifi off; turning the switch back on turns wifi on, but sometimes as soon as it's on, the wifi/bluetooth will start blinking on and off on screen.  I have tried taking the adapter out and putting it back in a couple times.  This didn't seem to change anything.
