Wireless On Internet Only Works / When Turn Other Laptop On
Jul 3, 2011
For the past few days my laptop's connect has been really spiky and constantly D/Cs. So I turn on my other laptop to check and its connect works. Then I check my current laptop and the connection works now too. Long story short, I found out that if I turn on my old laptop (also connected thro wireless) my current laptop is able to connect flawlessly. I tried it the other way around, turning off my current laptop and only using my old and it works so it must be a problem with my current laptop.
I have a Latop Asus A52F Series and the problem is that My internet works fine with the cable but when I want to connect to wireless I cant I keep getting messages windows unable to connect to my wireless called Linksys E2000 Advanced. it works fine with cable but doesnt work with WIRELESS
So I have 2 laptops, a win 7 and a win 8,The windows 7 laptop works on the internet fine, but the windows 8 one always disconnects, even when the win 7 isn't on.It disconnects usually when I'm running multiple programs that use the internet on it, but when I run a game like counter-strike, it disconnects too, but not nearly as often.The router is from 2008 or 2009, but it's a tiny aztech one. I'm sure it's not the isp, because like I said, the other laptop works fine.
Wired Internet works on laptop but not on desktop 1) Cable modem --> Switch --> Wireless Router --> ATA Adapter for the VOIP Phone --> Desktop Worked until i had a minor power outage. After which everything stopped ie No internet. So i tried scenario 2.
2) Cable modem --> Wireless Router --> Switch --> ATA Adapter for the VOIP Phone --> Desktop Got internet working (wired and wireless) for few days and then it stopped suddenly again. I tried both the above scenariosn again, but didnt work.
3) Now I connected my laptop (which i connected via wireless only before) with wire from cable modem straight to Laptop. Interent works
4) When I connect the same wire used successfully on laptop to my desktop, internet doesnt work. Both Laptop and desktop have windows 7?
We bought a Dell XPS 15 laptop a few weeks ago and it has been working perfectly until yesterday. The internet (wifi) is connected at a strong signal but will not access unless it is in safe mode with networking.
We have Wireless connection facility in our collage. All my friends can access to wireless but I cannot. How to connect to wi fi in my laptop.I tried to power on the wireless by pressing FN+F8 together but at network connection it displays as No connection is available.Secondly I checked the device manager and under Network adapters there is only three driver Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network), Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TSI) and Realtek PCIe FE Family Controlleer are working.I also checked the driver of this PC and found one folder named WLAN_B and even did the setup but still not working. I am using windows 7 Professional and 64 bit of OS.
this model does not have a button and the fn key combo has no effect. The adaptor shows fine in device manager. How can I turn the wireless back on? I had this problem once before but can't remember how to turn it on.It seems like a box popped up asking if I wanted to restart the wireless.
I have a MSI laptop and I turned on Wireless from the button and the led is now green but when I try to connect it says it is off? Btw, there is a X on the Wireless Connection in Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network Connections.
It pretty much just stopped working one day. I have reset my router completely. I have tried the netsh commands. I have tried using different dns ip addresses. I have released and renewed ipconfig. I have reset both my cable modem and my wireless router. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless drivers and made sure they were up to date. None of these things worked.
Here is the story. My laptop will not connect to the internet even though it says it is connected and shows the SSID when you hover over the wireless on the bottom. I have an iPad, iPhone, and another laptop connected to this exact wireless connection. The laptop that does not connect (the one i am having problems with) recently connected to another home wireless network this past weekend in another house so it is not the card in the laptop. It seems to be settings in this particular laptop with just this wireless connection as the wired connection using the same router works just fine. It DOES NOT time out when I ping websites in the command prompt. I get returned values. I have tried several browsers and none of them work. It will not connect to AIM either. I have spent many hours trying to figure out what the hell has changed and why this connection won't work. I really need this connection for work.

My laptops internet connection quality is inconsistent. I constantly have to disconnect and reconnect my LAN connection to speed things up or keep things going. Then one day I discovered that if I keep the computer plugged in, the internet works consistently and just fine, but ONLY if I do this
I have a higrade VA250D laptop, I have just connected a wireless adapter to my main pc, but when i try to connect the laptop to the wireless connection i get the message that "the wireless adapter is turned off. turn the wireless connection on by means of the switch usually found on the side or front of the unit or by means of the function keys". I do not have a switch on anywhere of the outside of the laptop and i am unable to find a function key to turn it on. How to switch the wireless capabilities on. I have checked on the device manager and it has a green tick and says that the device is working properly.
2. In the school wifi, it sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't work. e.g. I walk into a classroom and open my laptop, it works fine for 5 minutes and then no webpages will load for the remainder of the class and ping will not send another response.
This has happened in almost all classrooms so it can't be the location. There are some lucky times where I get wifi for the entire duration of the class.I asked several classmates beside me and no one else really had that issue so it must be my laptop. [code]
I have an Asus Model U56E. Recently the wireless has been disappearing whenever I turn off my laptop. What I mean is that when I turn on my laptop, the wireless doesnt seem to exist. I go under device manager and all I have is the eternet and my bluetooth device. About 85% of the time, when I go under "action" and click on "scan for hardware changes" the my Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N1030 will show up along with the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adaptor and I'll get my wireless back. However, when my laptop turns off, the same thing happens.
In addition, my fn F2 button no longer seems to work. I'll press on it and majority of the time my light that signals that the wireless is working does not turn on. Most of the time it stays off whether or not I am connected to the wireless
This is what I already attempted to fix it, based on googling for answers: 1. Under the properties of my wireless and miniport adapter, I went under power management and unchecked the box that says "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
2. I went to my laptop's power plan and changed all my wireless adapter settings "power saving mode" to maximum performance for both battery and cord
3. I went to the intel website, had it look at my laptop wireless system and followed their recommendation of installing an updated wireless software thing. All that happened was that it told me to disable my old wireless and then install it. However, even though I followed their instructions, it continued to repeat the same message. I had to perform a system restore to get my old wireless back
4. I disabled wireless console 3 (by Asus) under programs and it seemed to work. My laptop was getting connected whenever I turned it on. However, the next day my laptop updated itself (b/c of my system restore) and I am back to the same situation except my wireless console is still disabled.
problem started a few months ago. wireless kept crashing. tracked it down to seeing it crash when certain Win7 Dell laptop tried to connect. (Laptop is company owned with standard type of corporate AD authentication and image) my wireless setting use WPA2 personal with AES encryption. use both N & G, auto rate and scan.any time this laptop connected the wireless crashed, other devices didn't show SSID (both main and guest)But wired connection continued to work fine.
I'm running Windows Vista on a Dell Laptop. Normally I just use wireless wherever I am but now I need to hard wire to the computer. It was initially working for a few minutes but then the connection dropped. Now whenever I plug the cable in, it shows it as being connected but comes up as local only so I can't browse or do anything.
I have tried:
-Restarting the machine -Ensuring that windows was picking up the IP addresses automatically -Checking the connection on another computer, works fine. -Disabling the IpV6 -Disabling/Enabling the LAN connection in the Manage network connections setup -Uninstalling, re installing the driver for the ethernet adapter -System Restore
I've also tried in safe mode with networking and have disabled any firewalls that were running.Again, most of the time I never use the hard wired connection, but whenever I have, it hasn't had any problems until now.It always comes up as being connected, but says local only.
I have a problem with my Lenovo y560. One of the members here had the same prob. but his thread is closed,so i can't write him anymore. PM also doesn't work.[URL]"...I have a Lenovo Y560 that worked fine up excepting a keyboard issue that I fixed based on a youtube posting. The fix was to tape a small piece of antistatic tape under the keyboard over a screwlike piece of metal. Apparently that metal was causing static by rubbing against the keyboard data cable. It fixed the problem. Previous to the fix, various keyboard keys prompted shortcut keys (maddening and couldn't type).After assembling the keyboard and the top of the keyboard pad (was very careful to not bring static and assemble properly), the wireless connection began to drop. I have another laptop (Asus) with a similar set-up but a Centrino wifi card (vs. Intel 1000 bgn for the Lenovo) and it was connecting to the wifi no problem. Often, I'll see a yellow sun symbol over the wifi bars or a blue animated circle or a red x. Changing the standard settings does not work. Attaching an ethernet cable brings up a perfect connection.
1) I've covered an antenna of some sort with the anti-static plastic (pea-sized piece).
2) My wifi card is bad and coincidentally went out when I fixed the other problem above.
3) When the keyboard problem existed, I hit a shortcut that reconfigured the wifi somehow (but it worked fine before I opened up the keyboard.
very time I start my laptop I have to start WZC.In my wireless network connections,I always have a broadcom 802.11g network adapter in the connect using box.Is there anyway to find out if this is working properly or use windows to connect for me?
