Iphone Connected To Laptop Through Wifi Hotspot But No Internet
Jan 17, 2013
I just bought a laptop installed with Windows 8. I want to connect my iPhone to the Internet through the laptop. I have tried using Connectify to set up a WiFi hotspot. It works only with WEP and my iPhone can connect to the Internet but my iPhone disconnects from the hotspot after a while and I need to restart my Connectify hotspot, which is really annoying.I googled online and find that I can use the netsh command to set up the hotspot. I run command prompt in administrator mode and type in the following:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=adhocnetwork key=password
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
And then I share the wired network through control panel > network connections > ethernet > properties.I connect my iPhone to the hosted network and typed in the password. I see a tick next to the SSID, meaning it can connect to the hosted network.I also check the status of the hosted network. Both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity show Internet.But when I open Safari on my iPhone, it says no Internet.
I am using an IPhone 4 as a hotspot to wirelessly connect my pc to the internet using a medialink wireless USB adapter. It says I am connected the IPhone says I am connecte3d but when I click on internet explorer it says web page not available.
I just purchased a T-Mobile hotspot (ZTE) yesterday. It can connect to the T-Mobile network and appears to be working fine. My Wii can connect wirelessly to the the hotspot, but my laptop can only connect to the internet through the USB cord (which it's really not supposed to, because that's supposed to be for charging the device). When I try to connect via wifi to my hotspot, my computer can detect the network. However, after I immediately enter my password, it says that it cannot connect. When I click "Diagnose the problem" it says there was a timeout.I have Windows Vista and one of the tech support people mentioned that Windows Vista sometimes has problems connecting with handshake devices (but he didn't know how to fix it). Another person said I should have about 20 seconds to type in my password, so it shouldn't be timing out so quickly. Is it something with my computer? I have a Compaq Presario CQ60. I had this same problem when I tried to connect to a friend's hotspot a couple weeks ago (I don't remember if it was also T-Mobile or another provider, though).
Anyway, I have a Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4056 with Win7 Home Premium 64-bit. I've had it almost a year now and have never had trouble connecting to public wifi.Recently, I moved into a new apartment with free wifi and I seem to catch the signal from my apt even though it is poor. Every time I try to connect with my Toshiba it says, "Windows is unable to connect to 'linksys'." However, my husband's HP laptop and my old eMachines laptop (7yr old) (which I am using to research the problem) can connect with absolutely no issues. When I go to the clubhouse, my Toshiba can connect, however it cannot identify the network and does not receive an actual internet connection.
So far, I have uninstalled/reinstalled and updated my network adapter (Realtek RTL8188CE), I've used Command Prompt ipconfig /reset and ipconfig /release along with several other commands suggested to other wifi connection problemsI've checked my DHCP and DNS to ensure they're enabled.As for firewalls, I have turned off windows firewall and have disabled Kaspersky protection, however I have yet to uninstall and reinstall, this being because I can connect to a password prompted internet connection at work.I am unsure how to check my IP address or any of that
My laptop connected to internet with wifi, but it cannot use even my laptop detect connected, when i run trobleshooter it's show 'no valid IP address' even i already set up to automatically detect , restart my wifi router and unplug doesn't make any changes
I have a Netgear N300 wireless router. My laptop is Sonay Viao, running Windows 7. This morning my internet was unreliable, and dropping every minute or so. Trying to trouble shoot, I switched the router off then on again. Now I have no wireless signal between my laptop and router. The router doesn't seem to be recognising the security password. I have not changed the password - this is still the original password for the router. Other devices are still talking wirelessly to the router.
I have an HP laptop running Windows XP almost five years old which contains an Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG network device. It connects fine with my router WiFi running off DSL. I recently bought an iPhone 4 and set it up as a personal hotspot. I've been able to connect a friend's Macbook to it. But even though my HP laptop sees the iPhone network, when I try to connect to it I get "Unable to connect to this network. It may be out of range." I've downloaded the current update for the wireless device.
I cannot get my Dell Laptop Inspirion c to connect to Iphone Hotspot. Is there s setting I need to change? My spouse's Dell laptop connects to Iphone hotspot without any trouble. I've restarted several time, it shows that it's connected, google will come up for a minute and then nothing.
1st. I have a desktop and nearby there is wireless internet WiFi hotspot. How can I connect it to the wireless internet WiFi? I am thinking of buying this: http:[url]....Apart from that adapter do I need something else?
2nd. Where the desktop is, I have no reception. I mean because my cellphone has no reception when it is in the same place where the desktop is. But when I put my cellphone in the window around 12 feet away, there is reception. So I am wondering if I can make a 12 feet long USB cable from the desktop to the window and with the Wifi/WLAN Wireless Network USB Adapter in the window.
We just moved and got a new ISP, and I have not been able to get a good connection through wifi. When I am connected, it usually goes really slow, and drops every so often. It says that I have 5 bars. I sometimes get a decent connect, but it only lasts a couple minutes. My sister has no problem connecting to the wifi at all on her laptop. I also have never had any problems connecting to wifi before, and I have been able to connect and have decent speeds at my friend's house. I'm on windows 7 the router is a Motorola
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 use a laptop and recently the wifi has stopped working for me. I can still connect completely but it says with "limited access," which results in me being unable to access the internet at all. The rest of the computers in the house work fine on the wifi and I double-checked the securtiy settings (WAP2 and all that) and it seems fine. What can I do? Tethering to my phone allows me to get on the internet and the computer connects successfully, but no websites will load whatsoever.
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.
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 recently bought a mobile hotspot for my new start-up business (rather than paying for multiple internet locations) but I can't connect with my laptop--I'm really trying to avoid buying a newer laptop because my funds are limited right now.My iphone and PS3 can connect to the hotspot and run fine without any problems. The laptop can connect to my hotspot BUT the internet wont connect, it just says 'unidentifiable network'.
The problem is: My Vista laptop cannot find the Wi-Fi hotspot I just create, although it appears on my XP desktop.If I used the included software to make my adapter as a Router, my Vista laptop can find the network and can connect to it. The problem is the internet connection always shows 'Identifying IP address' and later on it shows 'Unidentified IP address'.I also tried to hook up my laptop with the wire connection and using Vista to do the vice versa. (I did this before once when my friends and I went to Vegas and we were able to turn my laptop into a wi-fi hotspot through the hotel's wire internet). I'm able to setup a wi-fi network but:
+ Using the Wireless Connections of Windows XP, my desktop cannot find the hotspot.
+ Using the included software with the adapter, I can connect to the wifi network, but it's unable to go to Internet.
I am new to forum and stuck in connecting one computer to laptop. Here is the scenario: One computer running on windows 7 is connected to wireless router Netgear WGT624 v3 via Ethernet cable. The second is laptop running on Apple. The first one computer does not have any wireless dongle. The laptop is connected with Wifi Hotspot of mobile phone. Now I want to make network between computer and laptop via wireless router to share files and the Wifi Hotspot which is already used by laptop.
I need to know how to change the wifi channel of the connection. connectify can't do it. I guess you have to set it somewhere in the network card settings, but I'm quite a noob when it's about wireless network. googling my problem didn't get me any good result since all the threads about channel setup are about modem/router wifi channel setting, can't find anything about hotspots.
so many wifi hotspot arround my place, but I can't get all, because need some password for it acces, how to know those wifi hotspot password without asking the provider, and or what kind of powerfull software of the password finder I can use?
I own a DELL Inspiron N5010 laptop.I use Reliance net connect in order to connect to the internet.I don't have any external devices connected to my laptop other than the USB data card.I have a smart phone and a tablet for which I need a WiFi connection in order to access the apps.
I think that N5010 has an inbuilt wireless adapter.Can I turn my laptop into a hotspot,so that I can access WiFi @ home for my other gadgets.I even downloaded a driver from the Dell support (Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 ) and also tried to set up a wireless connection using adhoc.I can see my connection listed in the system tray,but the connection says "WAITING FOR USERS".
I have a local network that I want to connect to a WiFi site. The site is a free service offered to our community by a local ISP. The network uses a wireless router but cable links the two relatively old PCs. They are used for a single inventory-accounting program. One serves as the softwre host. The organization wants episodic Internet access so they can use a software update auto installation service. There are alternative ways to accomplish these updates, but this pathway is the only one acceptable to the organization. Why they reject a simple thumb drive using an out of system download is beyond me, but it seems to be a locked in idea. Oh, the current wireless router cannot accept DD-WRT, but one is available if it can be used if useable.
Have a problem with Wi-Fi, and going to work on this computer over the weekend. So before I get my hands on it, hoping to get some suggestions on how to get it done. The time for a fix will be limited. Wi-Fi always disconnects after about 1 hour of connection to a Wi-Fi hotspot under Windows 7 via Bootcamp.These Wi-Fi drops happen in every hotspot (fast food, hotel, other free Wi-Fi) so far.Works without drops when connected to same Wi-Fi hotspots in Mac OSX 10.x.Even works in Windows 7 when using own, separate Verizon 4G mobile hotspot, model MIFI 4510L. But again not when connected to the hotel hotspots/routers.Loses Wi-Fi connection after about an hour when on regular Wi-Fi (via router/hotspot). Happens on different Wi-Fi networks in different places -- same problem.Checked online and saw lots of people having Wi-Fi disconnection problems in Windows 7 on Mac Books (Pro and Air). Also saw people having lots of disconnection problems with just Windows 7 (without a Mac).
What makes Verizon 4G hotspot so different from other hotspots? Is it protocols? Different encryption? Something else?Obviously I can't change the settings on the routers (as they are the establishment's and are different in every place). I can only change something locally on the laptop itself.I have very limited amount of time to apply any fixes I can think of. About 1 hour; 1 and a half max. I know that it's not best for trying to troubleshoot it, but that's all I have this week to work on it. In a few weeks I might have more time to spend with it. Laptop may have Hide My Ass Pro VPN proxy installed. Can't verify at the moment. OSX has it for sure. Windows side -- not positive. But switching it off will be the first thing I'll try. What steps to try to undertake and in which order. Any way to monitor the connection live and see what caused the disconnect? Say a live or recorded log of network card and router communication? Reinstall drivers? Any better drivers available for it? The Wireless card is called Airport officially. But if remember correctly it is: Broadcom BCM43xx.
I use my android as a mobile hotspot to connect to the internet on my laptop. My laptop says it is connected to the internets.d has a strong connection but will not load any page on internet. I use my mobile hotspot to connect to the internet on other devices and it works great. I am using windows 7 operating system and internet explorer for my browser.
I have desktop with windows 7. I am connected to internet through D-link ADSL 2+ router using RJ 45 cable. I want to create wifi hot spot on this desktop. I tried installing connectify software. But when I try to configure hot spot with connectify it says No wi-fi device present. Now what hardware do I exactly need to turn my comp into wifi hotspot?
I've got a WiFi router which I'd now like to connect through my Android phone's 3g hotspot. The router is a Trendnet TEW-691GR. The phone: an old Motorola Milestone.
The reason I'm attempting this is the ADSL (or other wireless) in the area is simply tooooooo slooooowww to even consider. I'm lucky to get 40kb/s through the ADSL, but linking through the phone's hotspot allows in excess of 2MB/s - price wise it's not much of a difference. So I thought: "Why not simply use my phone's connection (seeing as I'm paying for it already - uncapped as well), and drop the ADSL contract?"
Only: the router was fine for the ADSL modem. But I'm failing to see how to connect it to the hotspot. I can connect the phone to the router quite easily. But if the hotspot is turned on the connection needs to go the other way round - doesn't it?
Anyhow most of the PC's & Laptops have a wireless connection, so I can directly connect to the hotspot from each of these. This now causes further issues: One of the PCs (I use it as a pseudo server) only has a LAN connection to the router. Also if a laptop is connected to the hotspot it cannot be connected to the router - thus it's incapable of seeing the shares on the "server".
I was thinking of attempting the router's WDS setup, but it requires the MAC address of the other wireless device(s). And for the love of Pete I cannot find the phone's MAC while its hotspot is turned on (simply says MAC address unavailable on the phone). I can find it when the hotspot is off, and have tried using that MAC, then turn the hotspot on and reboot the router - but still it doesn't connect to the hotspot.
We (our company) have a new glass fiber internet from a provider with 5 ip-addresses in an /29 range. I try the accomplice the following. On port 1 comes the output from the provider. On port 2 till 7 I want to separate the ip addresses so can distribute these addresses to our lan, to a wifi hotspot for external company visitors etc. So on port 2 a ip to the lan, on port 3 a ip to wifi router
whenever I try and access the internet from my laptop it keeps on loading...seriously like forever it never stops... I have tried a lot of things which actually worked but only for a limited amount of time. Lately I had been lucky to get my hands on some cmd commands which were abletil I restarted the laptop, I then performed the following commands every time I started the laptop: netsh winsock reset catalog, netsh int ipv(ip, ipv4 and ipv6) reset reset.log.I also tried ipconfig/flushdns which worked for like 5 seconds, they worked only for 1 week. I have 1 computer and 2 laptops, the computer can connect and browse my sisters laptop too but my one not. I was setting up both my and my sisters wifi, it took ages to get done once it worked for me once for my sister and then it stopped working for me and i got it running on my sister.[CODE]
