Wireless Router - Enable Both Laptops To Use The Internet Connection At The Same Time?
Jun 15, 2011
I have two laptops which connect to the router via wireless. This router is wired to the modem. I can connect each laptop to the router then make an internet connection. This works fine. But if one laptop is connected to the internet, then the other cannot. I have to disconnect the first laptop then reconnect with the second.
I have had this scenario working in the past and can't remember what I have to do to enable both laptops to use the internet connection at the same time.
My son connects his xbox360 to his laptop that uses a wireless access to the router. My husband and i both have a laptop and when we try to log on to the internet it takes forever or doesn't connect at all while son is on his xbox 360. Do I need to change up my router?
I have a belkin wireless router/modem running our home network. We connect using 3 android devices, a wii and wireless printer with no problems. However, when connecting using either a windows 7 or windows XP laptop the internet connection is lost after a couple of minutes. I can't work out the cause of the problem but resetting the router gives a couple of minutes of browsing before it goes again. I have tried using static IP addresses for the laptops but this hasn't worked, furthermore I have tried a winsch reset.
I had to reboot my Dir 655 because my 2 wireless laptops wouldn't connect to the internet. Once I reset all of my static IP settings in the dlink admin tool the wireless laptops work fine. The problem now is that I can't connect to the internet on the computer that is hard wired into the router. I recall once before having to adjust the TCP/IP settings in the Network settings, but don't remember exactly what it was the I had to do.
So, I have this router at home a WRT150N. I put in access restrictions so my siblings won't stray onto unwanted pages.I enabled SPI Firewall Protection and what do you know, it worked. The next day though, we didn't have an internet connection.I checked everything with the modem (power cycles, etc.) and then I tried the router. Upon disabling SPI Firewall Protection, the internet connection came back.I tested it yet again, to see if it really was the SPI. Enabled and bam, no internet access again. I made sure to select "Allow" in the Access Restrictions for "Internet access during selected days and hours" making sure also that "Everyday" and "24 Hours" are selected.Now my question is, what do I need to do in order to enable my Access Restrictions without having to lose internet connection via the SPI Firewall?
my computer is a laptop and its about 3 years old. Ive been experiancing problems with my internet connection...It seems that it is fluctuating between local and internet to just local every 5 minutes or less. Usually I fix problems with my software no problem this time
I cant' connect my 2 laptops on the internet at the same time, only 1 laptop can connect on the net and the other one don't or they can both connect to the internet but it doesn't stop disconnecting on both of them.
How do I enable the wireless capability on my hp G7286US Notebook? It was working fine until last night. My LAN connection works for my desktop; however, I cannot enable the wireless connection on my laptop. My OS is Windows 7?
Is there a way for me to connect my desktop PC to my laptop, & use the laptops EDGE/GPRS modem in the PCMIA slot of the laptop to access the Internet? I also have a wireless router that is not being used for anything, however, I use the laptop to get online, & I'd like to share that connection with my desktop at home.
I have 2 laptops that won't connect to the internet through my wireless router. They will connect through the ethernet cable though. When I click on connect, it says "waiting for network" but then closes itself and says it cannot connect. I also have one laptop that will not connect for several minutes after it "wakes up" from sleep mode or is restarted. It shows (No internet access).
I leave on one of my computers on all the time, an Acer desktop with Windows XP. I also have two laptops. I have Verizon DSL and a linksy wireless G router. When we have a power outage the Acer desk top loses it's internet connection. Trying to reconnect the connection takes hours. Even when we finally get it back we have no idea how we did it. The laptops which of course were off have no problem.
One of my laptops is having a connection problem. I have 3 other laptops that can connect perfectly with my router, and normally there's only 1 laptop that is connected to my router. The laptop with the slow connection (takes 5 HOURS to load a website, sometimes will not even load), i re-installed the OS, and installed all the drivers needed, and it still wont work. it shows strong connection to me, and im sure the password for the router is right. below is the ipconfig/all information. Having this problem for 2+ weeks now!!! I think this problem started when i restored my router to factory setting, my router is Netgear WGR614v6.
I have a new Linksys E2000, I was unable to connect one of my laptops to the internet, so I decided to call support with the problem, after 45min and not results, find out that the E2000 do not support the Atheros AR 5007, they told me that I need to get a new driver for my adapter. Fine but Cisco doesn’t have a Driver update for this problem or how to fix it, or at least send you a link where to get the fix.
My Latitude D630 has been dropping internet connection all the time for the past three days. I looked up similar problems on this blog: a) cleared the DNS cache, b) downloaded windows XP- service pack 3, & 3 network software recommended for my laptop by Dell from the website and updated to the Intel PROSET/Wireless WIFI connection utility, d) ran ipconfig/all from C prompt and know the ethernet connections are disabled, e) called and checked with our local ISP and cleared the connection from their end. To sum it, I have tried everything I know and am still not able to maintain a steady connection to the net using WIFI. However I am able to connect using the cable to the router, so my net provider said the problem is with the wireless connection on the laptop. I didnt have this problem before.
my internet connection is just connected to a router , it is OK to always disable and enable my internet connection? because every time i open my PC i always disable and enable the internet connection to make it work. how to make my internet connection work properly every time when i open my PC?
I, like OP, use my PC to sign into Xbox LiveI've never had problems with it before, not ones that I couldn't solve, and have set it up a number of times after reformats or new installations of Windows, so I usually am able to figure out the problem on my own without necroing old threads. But this time my luck seems to have run out. All of a sudden a few days ago, my Xbox refused to sign into Xbox Live. There seems to be a problem with my Xbox recognizing my PC's internet connection, because when I do tests they never get beyond the 'Xbox 360 to Network' stage. I did the usual steps that are given in the troubleshooting section but to no avail.
I looked at my network connections in the control panel, and it seemed my Xbox connection was set up for ICS, rather than my computer. It dawned on me when I figured out that the reason the 'Sharing' tab wasn't showing up for my PC's connection (in the Properties tab) was perhaps because the other connection had it enabled. Sure enough when I disabled it for the Xbox, the Sharing tab showed up in the Properties for my PC's connection. Only, when I go to click it to enable it and press OK, it gives me a message: "An error occured while ICS was being enabled. The dependency service or group failed to start." I thought perhaps it meant my Xbox connection but that doesn't seem to be the case, as the message appears whether its turned on or off.
At this time I'm also awaiting a new video card, as my current one died on me yesterday, which was a day or two after this Xbox connection problem arose...great timing, right? I'm currently operating in safe mode with networking, and I know that certain windows operations don't work in safe mode. Perhaps this error message I'm receiving is due to me being in safe mode? I have no other options until the new card arrives, as starting Windows up normally went from being a really fubar screen to being a completely black screen upon start up. So I guess my question is...am I unable to enable ICS while in safe mode? And if so, why was I able to disable it while in safe mode for my Xbox's connection? That's really annoying.
Some of the things I've seen while looking foXbox ethernet can go bad, i.e. through static shock frying it. I've had some problems with my surge protector that are quite strange. Sometimes it will start to beep continuously really loudly until I disconnect it. And then I have to unplug everything from it, plug the protector back in, and reconnect everything, in that order otherwise it beeps at me in disgust. But there's no pattern to this. It once did it twice within a week, then the next time it did it there was about 3 weeks in between. Perhaps this is partially to blame for the video card crapping out...perhaps it did something to xbox? But one would think it would cause something like a RROD, rather than something so specific as the ethernet port.
I'm having problems with my current network setup.I have four machines that need to be networked together (with the plan to add more in the future). One of these machines, the 'host', I want acting as the 'server' which holds all the shares etc.I have a security router which the 3 machines, and a printer are plugged into (via the lan ports). The host machine is also directly plugged in to this.That router hands out IP addresses to these machines using DHCP. The problem is that, I want the internet connection to be shared to these machines through the router, via an active wireless connection on the host computer.
I have an e1200 Linksys router hooked up and working well, a wired connection to my first computer a wireless connection to my second (laptop) in the basemen and to my HDTV. My question is what Linksys device would I need to enable me to get a wireless connection in the basement to then hardwire connections to my Blue-Ray player and my HK AVR-3650.

It is usually by a router or install a third party software without anyone saying if it works or not.
I have two connections at home. One is a Wifi ( public wifi for my village) that i use for my phone and the other one is a wired dsl. I have used both but not on the same time. I tried connecting them both ( phone have tethering) but I think they are interfering with each other making me lose connection. I am using vista home.
I have seen the merge connections( in network and sharing center) and i have seen this one [URL].. but I am a little bit wary of changing my registry.
At around 2:30 PM each day, the internet slows down, and it says its connected but with limited access. A few minutes later, it gets full connection again, but it is super slow, then the same cycle starts over again. It stops happening around 8:00 PM.
Internet cable to dir655 and cat5 to master computer with slave using wireless. Network between them always works fine. But if master connects to internet the slave will lose the internet until the master disconnects. like it won't share the signal.
I bought a e4200 router about 3 weeks ago and after a power outage it decided it didnt like being connected to the internet anymore. So i got on the phone with cisco they determined the router was no good, mind you my laptop would connect wired. So they sent me a "refurbished" one, so i set it up. The new setup was wonky because it said the same message "Your connected to your router but..." then after trying to get the connection its self and failing it came up with "congratulations you are now connected to the internet". That lasted 3hrs and 45mins then died, so i went upstairs to power cycle it, it decided to connect with the old settings. That lased 25mins then died, so i reset it and reconfigured the router. Wouldnt connect, i checked my mac address and it was using my wireless one and kept turning on my wireless connection durring the install. So i cloned my wired mac address and got the internet for roughly an hour... then it died. So i reset it again and kept the wifi off got it going and decided to go to sleep. I wake up and its still working after 8hrs, i go down stairs with my tablet and i dies again. This time it refuses to reconnect, refuses to reset back up just doesnt want to work.
At home I have 3 computers and 2 mobile phones that connects to wifi network.Often, if I open up one of the computers that is sometimes off (laptop), then the network connection doesn't work anymore. I can still see the network in wifi choices on any device, but it won't connect to the Internet.
I have battling this issue since I bought this router, at least 2 years.

Not sure what other router info you need. All are connected to the internet, but can't see each other on the LAN. We can see each other from time to time. Sharing is allowed. Passwords are shared. I can power off the router and the network will be fine for about a day, then gone again. Workgroups are the same.
I have two routers one is a o2 router which is for the internet (broadband) the other is an old bt home hub which i have connected to the printer via usb. In order to print a document at the moment i have to disconnect my laptop from the broadband router and connect it to the printer router.Is there any way that i can connect to the two router s at the same time so that i while printing i can still keep my internet connection.
I have a Cisco 1811W that after several years in service suddenly stopped allowing any wireless connection to laptops on the domain. It allows hard wired connections and devices that are just using the wireless hot spot like iPads and Iphones but not devices on the domain. These same laptops connect wirelessly without issue at our other facilities which use the same hardware.
Here is the config file of the router in question...
