Wireless :: Disable Disconnection Of Wireless Internet Capability?
Jul 30, 2012
How to keep wireless internet capability on? All of a sudden it turns off and I have to turns it on each time I swtich on the computer.The problem is with an ASUS, X53Z Series notebook. BTHomeHub-DE88 internet access.
I have a wireless router (an Actiontec PK5000) and two desktop computers that connect with USB wireless adapters. I'm looking for a way to stop one of those computers from connecting wirelessly, without disconnecting the other.I used to have a wired ethernet connection, but since I've moved my computer to a different room I've had to rely on a wireless connection. Previously, I shut off the wireless in the house whenever other people were hogging bandwidth, but now that's not an option, as it would shut me down too.
I am running 5508 controller with version 7.0 and 1142N access points.. I am facing a problem on user connectivity. Wireless Users are getting frequent connection and disconnection. These users are not getting connected to the access point nearby although this access point is up and running. I have tried reducing the power level, configured the AP after resetting it.
I just recently had comcast high-speed cable installed, and purchased a Linksys E2500 advanced dual-band N router to get myself going. I'm running an Asus G74s series laptop with windows 7 and everything runs great while I am the only one connected.That being said when another laptop connects (Toshiba satellite also windows 7) the internet stays stable. It isn't until we try and do something that the internet randomly disconnects for 2 or more seconds before re-connecting and putting us in a constant loop of idiotic disconnection.
A quick example would be using the Toshiba to connect to World of Warcraft, I on my Asus can surf the web just fine for about an hour before it disconnects. When I try connecting to a, or the game at the same time it'll allow play for about 7 mins before the net drops for a few seconds then re-connects. This happens frequently no matter the time of day.I have attempted re-setting everything. Everything is up to date including the router. I've attempted to release and renew my IP. However I get this :
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
I thought I had this problem fixed i.e.unticking `allow computer to turn this device off to save power`in Wireless Connection Properties, I still have the problem the diagnostics say I did not receive any response from the wireless router or access point! I have Vista SP2.
Here is my internet setup:Blue Zoom ISP (Satellite) >>> Their Modem >>> Sony Viao Desktop >>> Linksys EA4500 Router,I have a metal garage with an apartment in it about 30 feet from the house. I cannot get any kind of wireless internet into the apartment because it is made of metal. I barely have cell phone signal.So, in order to get internet into the apartment I have a Ubiquiti Nano Bridge mounted about three feet off the ground right outside of the apartment which runs a CAT 5 Ethernet cable inside the apartment into a Linksys EA2500 Router.
I have been experiencing random disconnection from the internet completely out of the blue lately. Router has worked great for a long long time. Now it just drops connection and is down for about a minute and then I can reconnect or reload a webpage.I have my xbox live and PC wired with a laptop wireless. It drops everything at the same time everytime. I hardwired my xbox to the modem and gamed all day. I would assume this could eliminate the modem as an issue. There isnt any inconsistencies with the router's colour or lights to my knowledge either.
I put a new Ethernet cable from modem to router to try and I thought it fixed the problem but it lasted problem free for about 6 hours then it crashed.
I have a Dell XPS 410 desktop PC purchased in 2006 now running Windows 7 (32-bit) that is hard-wired to D-Link 825 dual band N router.
The Problem- The desktop, when actively using the internet, will randomly lose connection to the Internet, then by just waiting, it re-acquires a connection. When it does this it sometimes also disconnects other laptops that are wirelessly connected through the same router, or at least slows them way down. Also similarly effects a hard-wired X-Box 360 (either loses connection all together or, the games start to severely lag) much to the disdain of my game playing kids.
I have moved into an apartment with 4 friends of mine. We all own HP 6515b Laptop running Windows 7. We connect to the internet through a wireless router. Our connection's name is LINKSYS and is WEP.Once i have connected to the internet, it will continue to work fine for a while. After some random time, it will disconnect.(The computer stays connected to the wireless modem, but computer shows NO INTERNET CONNECTIVITY (in bottom-right taskbar))Then in 5-6 seconds, it will start working again... The only change that is visible is that the exclamation mark on network disappears. The computer remains connected to router for this whole time. Initially we thought it was a problem of our ISP. But later we found out that at a time not all users face disconnection.So at a particular time, it is possible that only I cannot open webpages.
Specs: Windows 7 64 bit Processor: Intel i7-2360QM 2.0 Ghz with Turbo boost technology RAM: 8GB DDR3 Graphics: Radeon HD 6770m 1GB Storage: 2 x 500 GB 7200rpm Network Interface: Integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Wireless: Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n. Bluetooth wireless networking with WiDi
So problem is with persistent disconnection from my landlord's wireless hotspot. The usual exclamation mark at the wireless bar indicating that I'm connected to the network but I don't get internet access...I've got the computer checked up by STAPLES where I bought it and everything was in perfect shape, network card fully functional... I mean it is brand new. They even reformatted the computer and installed clean Windows 7 with no crap software in it...I brought the computer to school and internet works FLAWLESSLY. Disgustingly fast.The problem is only when I'm at home where my internet would work fine for say 5 mins and then the exclamation mark will pop at the wireless bar and I would lose internet access for half an hour or more. I would get the access back and then it would disconnect again.
I called my ISP and they suggested to change my wireless channel to a unique # say channel 11 from 1-11. Turns out the wireless channel already is on 11... I then got it changed to 1 by my landlord. Still same situation. We then tried to change the wireless security encryption (e.g WPA-personal to WPA2). My computer can't connect in that case...On a side note I do have an older laptop (~7 years old), the one I had before purchasing this new computer. This old laptop can connect to the wireless and work PERFECTLY.
So the problem happens only with this new computer, and only at home. I'm completely clueless as to what the problem might be. It looks like some kind of interference but I've tried changing wireless channel (from 11 to 1) which didn't get rid of the persistent disconnection. Could it be interference with another computer that's using the same wireless hotspot in the house?
I'm about fed up with with having this issue that no one can seem to solve. It dates back to when I owned a WRT54G router. I started experiencing random disconnects with the router, both wired and wireless. I only owned the router a year and figured it was going bad.
So I purchased this WRT120N router late August. Soon after I set the router up, low and behold the same problem started. I've called my ISP a couple occasions and they tell me that everything is fine from their end. I've spoken with Linksys tech support on 3 seperate occasions. I have changed the MTU to 3 different values and upgraded the firmware. The 2nd support tech suggested that I do those two things. To my surprise this worked for 2 or 3 weeks with no problem. The same problem started again just last night disconnecting intermittingly. I spoke with another support tech and they suggested that disable the SPI Firewall protection and Anonymous internet request. That did not work for the brief time I had this disabled.
More into the problem, when it disconnects the modem seems fine but the activity light on it stops as it should. The router itself appears to reboot, then when it comes back up the connection restores. What could possibly cause this? I currently have version 1.0.02.This is getting very frustrating and I am getting very near not using Linksys/Cisco products any longer.
Just about 2 weeks ago, I keep getting disconnected from games that I play. It will boot me off of the game but I will still have internet access. I've tried upgrading the firmware, had linksys techs resetting the router, gotten a new modem from my ISP. Hardwired the PC that I normally use.The router that I have is a WRT120N, each and everytime a linksys tech reset it's basically the same thing with the same disconnecting problem afterwards. I'm thinking it's usually when another phone device tries to connect to the wifi that it boots me off. I have 2 pc's, one laptop and my iphone that connects fine w/o any problems but when another android or iphone connects it causes me to disconnect.
I purchased WRT54GH wireless router back in 2009 and it was working fine except for past 1 month, wherein the Internet Connection was being disrupted 15 - 20 times in an hour. I thought it could be fault from ISP end; however after investigation by ISP we found the fault was not from ISP as, when Wireless was unable to establish connection with the DSL Modem it was failing but when tried to connect laptop with the DSL Modem it worked fine (Wired connection). I did try the Settings mentioned in an earlier post to change the UPnP and the Beacon Interval etc. This however doesnot seem to work as the internet has been disconnected almost thrice since then. (Approx. 15 - 20 mins). When the router is unable to connect to internet I restart the Wireless Router and the DSL Modem. After restarting, the Internet connectivity works fine.
Below are the Advanced Wireless Settings from Wireless Tab:
Region : United Kingdom Model : TD-W8970 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : 0.6.0 1.2 v000c.0 Build 130201 Rel.54921n ISP : O2
I have sent the following trouble ticket to TP Link Support hoping they can shine some light/fix a VPN issue I am experiencing with the TD-W8970 router.
Please see the text below.........
I have 2 tunnels set up on my TP Link TD-W8970 and although both of these work for a a while, they both drop out after 24-36 hours for no apparent reason. The tunnels still show as "up" in the router, but I lose PING and connectivity to my remote systems. The only thing that seems to fix this is to reboot the router.
I have tried the tunnels with and without "DPD" (Dead Peer Detection) enabled and the results are the same.
I have 2 other friends who have the exact router with the same firmware (latest version), and they too have the same issue.
There is nothing in the logs showing any disconnection of the VPN, and as I have mentioned, the tunnel still shows as "up" on both ends. Its almost as if the service has stopped running, but I cannot check this.
I currently have an AE2500 wireless usb plugged into my pc which is upstairs from my modem NetGear CG3100.Everytime I establish a wireless connection it has 4-5 bars of signaltivity. However after a couple of seconds the signal bars drop to 2 bars and maintains that way. I then experience disconnections which sometimes if i disconnect from the web, my browser detects it as a DNS error. To overcome this i just disconnect from the hotspot and reconnect again but the problem still persists.
We have 5 pcs Cisco Aironet 1142 Access Points without controller at the same building. SSID is same for all of them. Our problem is client connected via wireless disconnecting randomly and continues working after a few seconds. IOS versions are same for all of them you can find detailed information about versions and configurations below.
We have this access point AIR-AP1231G-A-K9 for mobile users. current version is c1200-k9w7-mx.123-7.JA4. Sometimes users are able to associate but not getting IP address from dhcp. It shows 0.0.0.0 for the particular client.
For a customer of mine I've installed 8 WAP 200 access points with an SF302 switch. The Access point are powered with POE. All seems to function properly: the clients are simple Android device and the connection appears solid.. We've a good roaming between access points (not seamless of course but is ok) and no particalur problems, also because the network is used to drive very LOW data (no internet): the clients opens a tcp connection to the server and sends only a keep alive packets over this connection.. Then sometime the server send a very small amount of data (some byte) to activate the display of the device and show a question.. the clients reply with some other byte of data and so on.. During an event of 3/4 hour we can do this 12/14 times, so the network load is nearly 0....
Last night the system suddenly stopped working: ALL clients (300) lost connection from their access points at the same time! How this can happens? The only reason that I can imagine is a power loss on the switch...
We are having a 2112 WLC and LAP1042 access points and facing a client disconnection issue. Also signal strength is varying even when client is at steady position. We have a single SSID structure and clients are connecting through 802.1x authentication with WPA2. Access points are joined in H-REAP mode. We also tried by creating a new SSID with open authentication and even on that SSID signal stregnth is varying and client is getting limited connectivity. Attached are the debugs for a particular client and the show tech support for WLC.
My HP laptop (Windows Vista, 4-5 five years old) has started to malfunction. I cannot connect to the router attached to my PC. The message tells me that the wireless capability is turned off. It says "Turn on wireless capability - this can be done by using as switch which can usually be found on side of computer or a function key combination." I can find no switch on my laptop, and don't know how which function key combination to press.
the wireless capability says it is turned off, however the switch for wireless is on, and I heard that it might be in powerdown mode, do you know where on a dell this can be changed or the wireless capability turned
My daughter has an old Compaq N600c with OS XP professional. When she visits me she would like to use my wireless broadband, however, her laptop does not seem to have a wireless capability. Is there any way we can install a card or something? I opened the silver multiport cover on the laptop lid � and there is a green card in there, marked PCB-PC7507 TRANSFB-30D-VER 310.Alternatively, would one of those USB dongle adaptors work? If so, can you suggest what to buy?I�m useless with computers.
My computer the theme of my laptop changed and a lot of programs have now shut off it has now been 30 minutes and I have turned on all the programs that was needed i did ant virus scan and nothing came up, how do i turn my wifi back on? its not my modem cause i manually connected it to the laptop and its working fine and if it was my modem I would still get to see the other connections in my housing area.
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?
We have a new HP G72 with windows 7. The wireless button turns the WLAN on and off, but the light stays amber, it is suppose to switch to blue. I still cannot connect to internet, troubleshoot and it says wireless capability is turned off. I have updated the driver, it is realtek rlt8191se, with 12/03/2010 software. I have tried uninstalling the device and reainstalling, still does not work. Went into the BIOS and enabled network adapter boot. Nothing in the BIOS about wireless. I updated everything else using the windows update to make sure that they did not have a fix. Windows mobility center says wireless is off but it will not let me select to turn it on. Other laptops are still able to see our wireless router, so it is not the router.
