Lost Internet Access / But Stay Connected To Wifi Network?
Jun 30, 2012
Over the past few days I've been having a problem with my internet connection.
I connect to my home wifi network and will have excellent signal strength, but after about 20 minutes or so, I will lose internet access, but will stay connected to my wifi network. If I join my neighbor's wifi network I will have the same issue.I will connect to a network, and while still connected, I will suddenly lose internet access (signal strength will remain the same). Switching networks doesn't correct the problem.
When I lose internet, I can disconnect from the network and reconnect mere seconds later and will have the internet access back again.I have reset the modem/router and my computer numerous times but the problem does not go away.
My laptop will not stay connected to wifi for more than a few seconds before 'limited access' appears. It connects and disconnects repetitively.i have a 3mobile wireless dongle. Other laptops stay connected no problem and i am always beside the dongle with full coverage. if i click the network icon several times on the bottom right it reconnects for a few seconds again,I have discovered that if i run 'funkypool' in the background the connection generally stays, but not 100%, but 90% anyway.this may possibly be because its java and always refreshing itself i think. it doesn't matter whether or not im plugged in or using battery but i did change the controls for automatically putting the wireless to sleep mode so i doubt that unless ive done it wrong.
I have many computers and work on a wireless network. We live in a very large multi-unit building in a very large city. We hadn't had any issues with connectivity for a while, but recently the PCs in the office cannot stay connected for more than a minute or two. It happens to our two desktops and one laptop; the only computer that seems immune is the lone apple laptop. The PC laptop has much less difficulty staying on when I sit in the room with the router. The office is literally the next room over, less than 20 feet. The network still shows up as an available network, it just won't connect. All the impacted computers will be fine for maybe a minute and then will all drop out at the same time. Rarely (like once in the past month) there will be no issues at all, and we can stay on all day. We have changed the channel of it a few times, but there are at least 15 other networks nearby. The router is relatively new, it is a Netgear Rangemax Duo wireless n-adapter. We have gotten to the point where we have no idea where to go next.
I installed the DIR-655 on my home network a couple weeks ago to replace an older model D-Link that failed.
I'm having trouble with my laptop maintaining a connection to the network ever since.

It seems that the wifi stays up until I try to access the internet via the laptop. After a few seconds, the laptop will disconnect, and many times the router seems to reset itself, though not always. This does not happen when using a hard-wired connection. Using the wifi-enabled Android phone doesn't seem to affect the network.
Sometimes the wifi comes back up pretty quickly, but other times it does not. Earlier today, the internet globe light on the router turned from blue to amber. I had to reset the CenturyLink DSL modem for it to work again.
When the network goes does, I get a message on my desktop that a network cable is unplugged, and the network disappears from my available wifi networks that I can see with the laptop. Sometimes I get the "limited connectivity" message.
I have tried changing the 802.11 mode around, and I've changed from Auto Channel Scan to Channel 1. Neither of those have fixed the problem.
I got a brand new HP Pavilion dv7-6c20us laptop yesterday. I brought it with me to a buddies house last night, and it was working just fine.
When I got it home today, I set up the Internet connection and everything seemed fine. I started up a downloader for a video game (Diablo 3) and saw the DL speed climb up to the usual 800-850kb/s that im used to seeing on my desktop PC. It slowly started to decrease in speed, though.. All the way down to 80 bytes/s.. and then it stopped. The icon in the lower right side of my screen told me that I had a Limited Access(?) connection.. i then diagnosed the problem.. and it repaired it saying that "The Connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and ther internet is broken" I thought that it could be just because i was upstairs, and my router was downstairs... it should still be within range.. but i couldnt think of anything else. So i moved downstairs and i got it again sitting 5 feet away from the router.
It stays connected and then for no reason at all it just dissapears..or loses the connection.. when instructed it will repair it.. only to have it happen moments later.. I just tried surfing the internet without having the downloader for the game going and it took longer, but it still happened 5-10 minutes later.
For the time being, I just plugged the laptop in directly to the modem.. kinda ruins the point of a laptop though, you know!
My Router says "NETGEAR RangeMax Next Wireless Router WNR834B..and I have a Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem - SB5101n
Have a new Gateway laptop running W8. I have to use Windows diagnostics in Sharing centre to reset the connection although it looks like it is still up.( page cannot be displayed ). Once reset and fixe all is ok until pc goes into sleep mode, then I have to reset again.
I recently had my Internet disconnected, and decided to share my iPhone's Internet connection (tether) with my PC. Now, the iPhone connection works, but for some reason my PC prefers to use my original Internet connection thus no connection. The only way I can access the Internet is by going into adapter settings and disabling my router, but I do not want to do this as I have other computers on the network and I often share files.
My computer constantly fluctuates between being connected to the wireless network/internet and "connected with limited access" in which I cannot access the internet. I am then forced to disconnect and reconnect. I then have 1-20 minutes before it drops back to limited connectivity.[CODE]
I have a 2 yo computer, custom ASRock G31M-S R2.0 with XP. I have QWest PK5000 wireless modem. I do not have a wireless computer, have a desktop. I am connected to the Internet by Century Link. The ethernet light doesn't stay on, and therefore I lose my connection to the internet. Sometimes for days at a time. Everything is plugged in. I looked at the wires outside my house to the area where my computer is located. Looks good. Century link says it is my computer.
My laptop was recently reset to factory settings and had the hard drive wiped, since I got it back, I can't remain connected to the internet. We have a second laptop running off the wireless that hasn't had any issue. I try to disconnect from the network and reconnect and sometimes after 2-5 attempts, I'll browse the internet for 5-45 min and then it will say it can't identify the network or that the computer is only connected locally.
Ive been having an issue for the past 3 weeks keeping my primary wired PC and the wireless PCs in my home network connected to the Internet. The internet constantly disconnects intermittently (with no rhyme or reason) and have tried everything I could do to try to resolve the issue. I connected my wired PC directly to the Optimum Online Cable Modem (Arris Telephony Modem v 3.0) I use to connect to the internet and it still has connection issues. Most of the time when it drops the connection, the network icon on the taskbar says I�m still connected to the internet. Only after a few minutes will the network icon finally appear with the yellow exclamation point over it. When I right click the network icon, I will check the network and sharing center and will click on the red x over the connection from my router to the internet. Sometimes when Windows checks for internet connection problems, it will state that it cant resolve the issue, and other times it will state that the DNS server isnt responding or cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server. I�ve had my ISP cable guys check my cable wire (coaxial cable wire) for packet loss, swapped my old router for anew one (twice), readjust the connection outside for a specific low node issue, and did 3 or 4 trace routes, conducted a multitude of ping tests, went on speedtest.com to check the signal strength and they state that everything looks great on their end. I also used different Ethernet ports built into the motherboard of my PC to see if my network adapter was the issue, but my internet connection it still continues to drop, even when only my pc is wired directly into the cable modem. I even changed the Ethernet cables themselves to see if they might have been faulty, but it still continues to drop.
I forgot to mention that I did the flushdns and registerdns commands , plus reset the TCP/IP, but my internet connection still continues to drop. The only thing(s) I have not done is change the network adapter completely (install a new Network PCI adapter ) and have the cable guy re install an entire new coaxial cable wire, of which myISP is adamant that I don�t need to have done since when I am able to connect to the internet, my signal strengths and speeds are great (download speeds of 32mbps and upload speeds of 5mbps). I know I�ve said a mouthful, but Im at a loss of what I should do next. When connected to my cable modem through my wireless N router, ALL of my PCs (my wired PC and my wirelessly connected PCs through my home network)will disconnect from the internet . Both the cable modem and the wireless N router still appear to be online (none of the lights on the front of the modem or router have changed ) I�ve even considered the strength of the ethernet cable itself, possibly thinking that the ones I have may not be strong enough for my internet speeds (purchased a CAT 6 Networking Ethernet Cable). My router , OS, cable modem, ISP, motherboard, and built in network adapter specs are shown below;
ISP: Optimum Online (with Boost Service) OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (with latest Windows 7 Service Pack 1 updates) Cable Modem : ARRIS Touchstone DOCSIS 3.0 E-MTA Telephony Modem TM802 Wireless Router: Netgear Rangemax Dual Band Wireless N Gigabit Router WNDR3700 Motherboard: ASUS Rampage Formula Built In Network Adapter: Dual Gigabit LAN (2 RJ45 Ports)
I have a dell inspiron laptop that is about 5 years old. It runs Windows XP and works great. Lately though it will not stay connected to my network (Linksys Router). It will connect and disconnect several times per hour and this evening it connected/disconnected and would not connect again.
I'm having trouble getting my laptop to stay connected to my wireless internet. This problem only occurs with my laptop. Other laptops in the house are able to connect no problem. It stays connected for about 5 minutes at a time, then loses connection. I have to disconnect and then reconnect all the time just to get online. I've had the router about 2 years with no problems. This just started happening only to my laptop yesterday.
I have a Toshiba Satellite E205 running Windows 7 and it will not always stay connected to the internet. If I am doing something like watching movies online or downloading large files I will get kicked off the internet. Then in the taskbar there is an X over my signal bars. After that nothing I do will get it to find a wireless signal. The only way I get the signal back is if I restart the computer. I know it is not my internet because my Blue Ray and iPod can stream movies just fine without losing their signal.
I am having trouble keeping a stable internet connection when connecting through the router. I am on my third new router in one week thinking it was a router issue but I don't think so anymore. I am on cable internet using a motorola surfboard modem. The router I bought is a Belkin N750. I also tried a Cisco E1200 and EA2700 with no luck. I have been on the phone with support for probably ten hours total and tried all of their settings to no avail.
any luck getting Nest thermostats to stay connected on a cisco wireless network. We are running 5508s (ver 126.96.36.199) and the thermostats are connecting to a 3502. The WLAN is a locally switched FlexConnect SSID.
According to nest there are two potential issues - NAT timeout and wireless networks that do not play nicely with devices that sleep for long periods of time. I've configured static NAT translations for the Nests, so that shouldn't be an issue. Nest says "Nest uses Wi-Fi 'Power Save Mode' to allow it to sleep and charge its battery while remaining connected to the internet. Not all Wi-Fi routers support this feature or implement it correctly. When they don't, Nest will have difficulty sleeping and will restart in an attempt to reset its network connection. This may happen repeatedly if your Wi-Fi router is incompatible with the 'Power Save Mode' feature." I've tried increasing the DTIM timers to no avail.
My HP laptop connects to the router via wifi always. However page loading is very slow. The google home page can take 30-40 seconds. The other laptop we have works fine. If I connect the HP laptop to the router using a cable it runs very quickly always. I have nortons security installed on the HP laptop.I ran ipconfig/all. I pinged the router default gateway address and got back 192.168.0.1. This worked. I then opened a browser and tried to load a page. It was slow to load.I ran ipconfig/all again. The default gateway address had changed. When I pinged the original default gateway address it was losing 1-2 packets and the other packets were very slow. It seems like the router or wifi is losing packets and the default gateway address keeps changing.
I turned off the wifi and used a cable to the router. I ran ipconfig/all. I pinged the router default gateway address and got back 192.168.0.1. I did this several times and the same address came back. Unlike the wifi example above nothing was changing.It must be this laptop's settings as our two smartphones connect to the wifi router and the other laptop as well and speed is not an issue.
At first, it says "limited or no connectivity" and after reading possible solutions, it now says connected and has a very good signal but once I open Mozilla or Google Chrome, there's no internet connection. The icon doesn't also have that blue light that I think is an indication that it has internet connection. My roommate can connect to this wifi with no problems, her notebook is Acer, just like mine. We also have a wifi at home and it connects smoothly. I don't why I'm having problems with this aztech wifi here. Btw, I do not own this wifi or router. It's like an open network.
I have a couple of computers in my house that work fine with my wireless router, but all of a sudden, my roommate's computer, a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7, is connection to the wireless network but has "no internet access." I've rebooted th.e modem and router, to no avail. I've also tried a number of suggestions online, but without success. My friend's computer has McAfee, with which I'm unfamiliar. The only real difference I cn see between our computers is that she has a different wireless card.
connect my PC/tablet with wifi router, I have bought wifi router which works with USB modem, when i connect my USB Modem i can see all the lights up (singnal- wifi, 2g/3g) and also showing in my laptop that is connect to wifi but unable to open the internet.
I work at a Public Safety building in Pennsylvania and our employees here share a Wifi connection with a local hospital facility that is in a industrial park behind us. The room we work in is able to access the Public Wifi but only half of the room has a good connection. I went to the local computer store and purchased a Belkin Dual-band wireless Range Extender and got it all set up, now I have the Public Wifi Extention access and it will connect to it but it has no internet access. Now we have no access to the administor or the network from our facility. How do i get internet access thru this range extender? If i connect from the good half of the room to the Public wifi i have a good connection with internet access but as soon as you put it thru the extender no more internet access.
i just recently moved my computer to a new house the wifi adapter is picking up the correct wifi and connecting to it but not accessing the internet there is also no network access. i completed an ipconfig/all the details are below.

I am facing a kind of weird problem!! My Sony Vaio was getting connected to my Home wifi network and I could access Internet without any problem. Its been few days now that I can't access Internet though it shows connected. It does connect with the Wifi without any issue and even show the full signal like before, but actually there's no internet access. No browsers (IE,Chrome,FF) load any webpage, no messengers work.
I am connected to my network wirelessly and I have Internet acces (according to the symbol at the bottom right) bu the Internet doesn't work. At the moment it keeps fluctuating between giving me interne and not I am using Skype to tell me if I have Internet ( when it's green I do when it's grey I don't) I have tried many things on forums like obtaining ip automatically or obtaining a fixed ip. I've tried renewing the ip and all this doesnt work.
Santa got a second-hand acer mini-laptop for my daughter this last Christmas and she accidentally pour some coke in it, I took it to the shop and I had to pay to repair it; when I got it back, the first thing is that originally it has Windows 7 and now XP, I thought it was ok, but even though I use my network passkey and everything, it quickly connected to the network showing internet access but when I open IE, it shows a message to diagnose connection problems, I run the repair wizard and nothing, but all the time it is showing that the connection is working, will I need to take it back to the shop or is there something I can do?
I can't connect suddenly to the Internet. I tried both Wired and Wireless connection to my laptop. The icon is showing that my laptop has detected the connection but has no internet access.Showing in my screen is: Connected to Network. IPV4 no internet access, IPV6 no internet accessI tried using my iPhone to connect via the wireless connection and I could get browse the Internet with it.. hence i'm sure the problem lies with the laptop.
