Cabling / Cards :: Multi Internet Connection Via Usb Wifi Dongle?
May 16, 2012
I have my PC connected to the internet by way of a USB WiFi dongle, tapping into the neighbours internet access (with permission).Obviously, this leaves my RJ45 Ethernet connection on the PC, free and unused.I have a CCTV system also, which, if to get the most out of it, requires an internet connection via RJ45 Ethernet.Is it possible to allow my CCTV system access to the internet via Ethernet, connected to my PC, and then using the WiFi dongle access which the PC is already using, also?If so, how would one do this, after physically connecting the Ethernet cable between the PC and the CCTV system DVR?
I have a Windows 7 based Dell computer and it can connect to the wifi but not the internet. I have 2 android phones and ASUS netbook with Windows 7 Starter that have internet access.I've tried the netsh commands as admin. I did download Xirrus WiFi Inspector but it tells me nothing new. I've tried drivers. I did a system restore to a point prior to updates and it worked fine until I installed the new updates. These are my results from the ipconfig command:

Just had a new wifi usb adapter delivered today and tried to connect my desktop pc from my room to the bt home hub 2.0 in the kitchen. This is only 13meters max to walk and 10m if going through 2 or 3 walls. I installed the ralink drivers and plugged in the adapter which my computer then installed fine. It will pick up some networks including mine which i managed to connect to but only at a very low rate. Not after very long the connection will disappear and so will all the other houses networks. If i then pull it out and plug it in again they appear again for a short while?
I use my parents packard bell netbook in my room and it works fine. It could well be the case that this adapter was pretty cheap from amazon and you get what you pay for..

I recently installed a new SSD and a fresh windows install.After reinstalling everything,I connected my LAN cable and had issues that it would constantly connect and disconnect.Even the lights on the back were flashing on and off.If it stayed on long enough it would establish a connection. I am using my motherboard build in lan adapter.I have a Asus P8P67 Pro, which has the Intel� 82579, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller. I was able to establish a connection perfectly fine through my wlan stick.I went to the Asus website and downloaded their drivers for the Lan Controller. This did not fix anything.I attempted numerous install and deinstall of the drivers. At that point I went directly to the Intel website and downloaded their most recent drivers. After installing the Intel drivers, I was able to keep a connection, but it was very very slow.Through Lan connection i am barely able to open up Google, but every time I attempt a speed test, the connection is too slow. Though when I connect through Wlan,I get the full connection speeds.The router I am using is a Netgear DG834G v4. Also tested various cable just incase that might be the issue. Also,when i use the same cable and connect it to my Laptop, I get the full connection and no issues.
My acer aspire 4736z can not use anymore internet even tough the wifi icon says its connected. I can use cable. should I download a new wifi adapter? My adapter is Atheros AR928x wireless net work adapter.
I have the same issue and have been surfing the web for the solution for quite some time. Brand new Sony VAIO laptop with blu-ray has an Intel WiFi bgn 1000 wireless network adapter. It worked fine for couple of days, until i brought it to work. We use wireless connection in our office. Maximum 7 computers are connected at a time. All other 6 laptops connect to our network with no problems (all of them are on win7x64). Now, back to the problem. Wireless works at home and at work in the evening , when no one in the office. I've removed all 3rd party software, uninstalled Intel software. Am using clean driver from the Intel website. Tried different revisions of the driver - issue is still there. I've contacted VAIO support. This is not known issue to them. They offered standard actions (unisntalling the driver, power management options, enabling VAIO Smart Network). No updates of fixes on their support website. I have also checked in the event viewer. There is only one service being enabled and disabled constantly (TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper) - which is happening at the same time with wireless drop. There are about 5-8 drops per minute. Computer browser service disabled. Firewall disabled, antivirus disabled. We assume this could be an interference with mobile diveces. While now, we have disabled all wireless cards on all computers, switched off mobile phones. And... AXAXAXAXA!!! BSOD 0x00000018 (0x000....00, 0xFFFFFA800754A750, 0x00...02, 0xFC01020EFC01020B).
I have an asus K52f laptop running windows 7, and i cant connect to my schools wifi router, some Cisco model. However i can connect with my iTouch and most apple computers can connect. My friend who has an HP on Win7 was able to connect. I asked him how and he said something about changing the properties of the network card so it was on cisco. Im not sure what he meant, and when he tried on my computer he said i needed to update the card something
I have one desktop system and one laptop.In desktop i have Internet Broadband. Now i have installed wifi PCi card into Desktop to share internet to my laptop.But there seems some problem i am not able to share internet.

I have Dell Vostro 1500, i was reinstalling my latop today, and when I try to install Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility, there is a error at the end of the installation "Driver is not installed, a problem with this connection has been detected" , the internet is not working.
We have 3 units of computer in our house uses a router and a 8port switch hub. The unit i am using can connect directly to the internet but cannot be mapped in lan. I tried pinging and i already assigned IP addresses in all units but still nothing happen. I already done format and cloned from the other unit.
My sister has just purchased a custom built desktop computer that will not connect to the household network. We have various other computers and devices that connect to the router (Thompson Gateway TG782T) without any problems. Just to be sure I've tried reseting the router to factory settings to no avail.
I've tried connecting her computer to the network through the TP-Link Wireless Adpater (TL-WN881ND) that came with her computer AND through a Netgear Wireless USB Adapter (WG111v2). In both situations the network is detected, the network password is requested (and accepted) but the result is always that she has 'limited connectivity', cannot access the internet and cannot detect any shared network drives.
I've tried connecting with an Ethernet cable as well, which her computer does not detect at all ('network cable unplugged').When I try to troubleshoot any of these problems I get a message that says 'The Diagnostics Policy Service is not running'.The guys at the shop where my sister had it built are asking her to bring the computer in with the router becuse they are convinced that the machine is fine, and that the router is at fault.

i have a dell inspiron mini 10 and i put windows xp pro sp2 on it and got all the neccesary drivers for it the problem with it is that it detects my router and everything but when it tries to connect it gets "stuck" on aquiring network adress i tried the winsock fix and everything but nothing seems to work
I have recently had trouble with my wireless D-link WBR-1310 Router. Two days ago everything was working fine, my wireless connection from the router to my macbook was fine and the wired connection to my desktop pc was also fine. I went to bed and when I woke up the next day everything was still ok. About 3 hours after I had first turned on the PC that next day my wired connection started spiking and dropping connection frequently, maybe every 5-10 minutes or so. I play world of warcraft and I also use Mumble VoiP Program and my pings in both are over 800 constantly now making it impossible to stay connected to either program. Sometimes it will drop down to regular numbers (25-50ms, I play on eastern servers as I am in NY) but then rapidly jumps back up into the 1,000's. My wireless connection is still fine though nothing has happened to that, only my wired connection is messing up.
I've tried changing my speed and duplex settings on my onboard NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Mbps Ethernet which is what im using but it hasn't worked. When connecting directly through the modem the problem seems to stop so its definitely the router.
I have D-link 524 router, my problem is that its signals are not being detected previously it was working fine( the devices we connect are ipad 4, htc wildfire S, nokia e-5 . these devices detect other wifi and connect to them.
I have the awus 1k awus036h wifi usb adaptor with the crappy stock 2db antenna. I was told by some randomer on a forum that getting a larger antenna doesn't increase the power output of the adaptor. IIRC this is directly against what I've read in the past but I forgot where so am unable to say one way or the other. I remember reading that the larger the antenna the more microwaves it radiates.Plus would it make it a health concern? Currently I have my adaptor in the other room maybe 2-3 metres from me separated by a plaster wall. enna I can if it is deemed safe or as much so as before pretty much since I have been using it for a while w/o probs. I was thinking of getting something in the range of 10db-14 db- maybe even going for an outdoor antenna but keeping it inside so long as it is affordable which they seem to be.
I live in an apartment building that offers free wi-fi. The connection on my laptop is bad and extremely inconsistent. I was wondering how I could improve this. I was wondering if a usb wireless network adapter would improve my connection.
I am using my Iphone 5 as a personal hotspot at home. It gets LTE so my speed is very fast as compared to satellite service from HughesNet. My laptop downloads at 12 mbs and uploads at 5 mbs versus satellite which is about 1 mbs. However, I installed a Linksys N300 usb adapter on my wife's workstation and it is actually slower than 1 mbs. The workstation is about 4 years old running on Vista. I have tried the usb adapter in all four usb slots with no change in performance.
I have network: 20 PC's conected to a switch (ordinary switch), from switch to a router (for DHCP and internet conection), Router is connected to a cable modem.
Lately an issue arised. One PC started having problem witch connection (PC is windows 7, up to date). PC instead of 192 addres is getting 169 (i need to highlight it is a problem with only one PC). That means the PC is connected to the Router but it is not getting proper IP addres. After changig the addres to static the connection ws fine for few days and then in networc connection icon (botom right) it came up with 'unidentified network' message. I changed the patchleeds, even changed the connection with known working line (from outlet to patchpanel) and the connection was coming and going. Then I changed network card with the same resoult. I noticed strange thing: While the IP is 169 or when 'unid net' when I unplug the cable from outlet then plug back and do so couple times in one moment the connection is back and stable but only for some period of time. Cables had been re terminated with new jacks and at the patch panel. Drivers for network card are up to date.
I'm planning to create a network of wifi access points all in different locations. Those locations all have different wifi routers and networks. I'm looking for a easy solution that let easily setup those networks to ask authentication credentials (in a browser page, once a user is inside the wifi and wants access the internet) by an external server possibly without overloading too much that server.
I'm using the D-link dir-300 wi-fi router. Cable internet connection. PC is connected to the router by the cable and the laptop via wi-fi. Both machines have the same problem - after some time, although there are no package loss when I'm pinging anything, some services report "connection timeout". Such as PvP.net, EA Online and Turbofilm.tv. Soft reset, hard reset didn't solve anything. Although when PC is connected straight to the main internet cable - there are no problems at all. [code]
I was also struggling with locale area net work.. When i have installed fresh window into my PC. The Locale area plugen showing but no internet conection found. I have restart my PC couple of times while sitting my different internet provider connections. Alteas i have reinstall my window xp so i guess may be its my window problem it have missing some files.
I have a HP nc6120 laptop and I recently switched the hard drive. I installed Windows XP professsional and downloaded drivers from HP homepage (also did a BIOS update)
Local connection via cable is OK (broadcom netxtreme gigabit ethernet) but there isn't wireless connectivity. I downloaded all the wireless drivers, but still HP wireless assistant offers only Bluetooth connection and there isn't a wireless card on the device manager list.
Some time ago, as I formatted my previous drive and downloaded the same drivers from HP homepage, the wireless connection worked like a charm
Well I did something stupid (big surprise) and somehow managed to uninstall something related to the ethernet ports. I get code 28 and a yellow question mark with a little yellow circle with a black,Anyways what do I need to do to fix this, attached details from everest. It's probably something as simple as reinstalling the drivers, but buggered if I can figure out which ones I need.
When restarting my PC after a short power failure the D-Link connection wizard autostarts trying to connect to my wlan. After a short while I have a connection and is able to access the internet. The connection wizard, however does not register that a connection has been established and continues to attempt to connect for two minutes, then shuts down and immediately starts for another two-minute try....and so on. If I shut it down it just pops up again.This has never occured before. I run Windows 7 on an HP with an AMD processor.
I have wireless connectivity, but my ethernet local area post will not work. Pinged 18.104.22.168 but got 4 timed out messages. Checked hardware condition and the controller card says it is functioning properly. Running Network Properties shows only the wireless connections, with Local Area Port disconnected.
Network Adapter (as displayed in device manager) Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller (says this device is working properly)I'm running my lan on the integrated network adapter "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller" on my motherboard. When I plug in the lan line directly from my router the speed on speedtest.net is around 2 Mbps, i have tested on 2 other computers and they all get around 10 Mbps with the same line. I build this new machine to play games, and sank $800+ on it. I am trying very hard to figure out why my LAN speed is so slow,
