Netgear Wireless Router - Toshiba And Dell Laptop Connect Intermittently To Internet
Dec 28, 2012
I have a netgear wireless router upstairs. My dell laptop, my iMac (which is downstairs) and my iPad/iPhones all connect anywhere in the house. My Toshiba laptop and my work dell will not connect or it connects very intermittently. I can stay connected for days on other wifi networks, just not at home. Any ideas?
Not my week so far yet another problem. Been trying all day to connect to the internet with the above router.Happened accross a screen saying Firewall settings.It says for the inbound services "BLOCK always" is this my problem?I have tried to amend this to " ALLOW always" to which the outbound services are already set.My next problem is it is asking for the inbound services to be adjusted so I have setthe service parameter to ALL, action ALLOW always but now is the problem it wants an address putting into the 4 boxes for the Send to LAN Server parameter,I have tried various setting but to no avail. Exactly where can I get this information from?
My Dell Studio 15 laptop cannot connect to my home wireless router, by can connect to neighbor's or my friends's or hotels's wireless network. My IPad and another two Dell Inspiron 17 laptops can connect my home wireless router without problems.
I have an Asus laptop with Windows 7 and a netgear N600 router and I can't connect to it or any Netgear networks. I can connect to other networks and others can connect to my network and all other devices work except my laptop.
I am having trouble connecting my girlfriends laptop to the internet using her Windows 7 laptop via a Dlink router with Virgin Media. The laptop previously had Windows Vista installed but I recently upgraded it to Windows 7. For about 2 weeks the laptop connected to the wireless router fine, but stopped working about 4 days ago for some unknown reason out of the blue.
We have tried various methods to fix it, including disabling the wireless network adapter and enabling it again, we have tried updating the driver for the adapter but we get a message saying that the driver currently installed is the latest driver. It also won't let me roll back to the previous driver as that option is faded out in the properties box.
I have took her laptop to my house today to try and connect it to my router (which is also with Virgin and is working fine on my computers at my house) and the laptop won't let me connect to the network and it keeps saying there are no network connections available. I understand that usually it displays a list of connections you can log on to, but the laptop is not finding any connections at all.
On Thursday we attempted to connect to the internet by plugging in the blue wire that came with the router and that works fine. It's just it will not connect wirelessly. What really baffles us with this problem is that it worked fine for a couple of weeks then suddenly stopped working. Could it be an update that was installed that has caused the problem perhaps?
I have also tried using System Restore but that hasn't fixed the problem either. The wireless adapter is called: Atheros AR5005G Wirelss Network Adapter.
Windows 7 laptop will connect to the wireless router but no internet access. The MAC in my house as well as the xbox both have internet via the wireless router. I just altered my internet by making it password protected and changed the name (SSID) Is this the problem?
I have a Netgear DGNB2100 Wireless N router. It is connected to an old PC via Ethernet cable. That connection works.
While downloading a 64 bit driver to use for the USB adapter for my PC, I connected my laptop to the wireless network with the laptops WiFi card (Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG), and used the internet for about ten minutes.
I then configured the USB adapter for my PC, after disconnecting the laptop.
My laptop will detect the network, but when I put in the password, I get a message saying Network Security Key Mismatch, and am prompted to type the key in again.
I have also tried pressing the WPS button on the router instead of typing in the password with no luck.
The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5920, with the aforementioned Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network card, and it is running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit.
I am using a netgear DG834GT router however having just bought a computer running on windows 7 I am having real connectivity problems, other laptops in the household are on XP and have no problem, is there an answer out there?
why do i have to place my laptop very near to the wireless router in order to get the signal? Please help. Will this be driver related issue? or the wireless hardware inside of my laptop? Because i remember i drop the laptop once.I have another laptop, where it is able to detect the wireless rounter from far?
My daughter is back from college and has had no problems with her toshiba laptop. The computer is connected with a strong signal to my Motorola wireless router. I cannot get the Internet to work. I have tried everything and nothing works. Comes up with "Internet Explorer cannot display this page".
I have a fairly new Toshiba Satellite P755 laptop and just started having an issue connecting to my Netgear wireless internet network since yesterday. The issue is that every time I turn on my laptop after it was off or hibernated my computer won't connect to my wireless network but I do see it available to connect to. When I try to connect it won't work unless I reset or unplug the router and plug it in again (Windows Diagnostic Tool says check router access points). Once I do that and wait a couple minutes I can connect to my network again. I have a Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless card and made sure my drivers were up to date. I have tried unchecking the option under Device Manager to not use it if the battery is low and that didn't work. I also tried to system restore and when I did that I got the following error: (0xc0000022) which says an unspecified error occurred and my files and settings were not changed. I have AVG Free 2013 and haven't made any new changes or updates recently.
But I cannot get my NEW Netgear N600 router to communicate with a NEW Netgear WN 3000 RP extender.The instructions say to press the WPS button on the extender then the WPS button on the router. No WPS button exists on the router!The instructions also I can use any wireless network manager utility to set this up. Can't find where this is in Windows 7.The I pad has found the NETGEAR_EXT address but won't connect. And the light on the extender does no indicate teh router is communicating with it.
i have a samsung laptop running windows 7. i have a netgear modem and router. all of my other devices connect with no problems but my laptop wont stay connected. it will connect for a while and then it will disconnect.
I just bought a Netgear WNA3100 wireless usb adapter for my HP Win 7 64 bit laptop. I have been trying for 2 and half days to figure out why my speed is slow, why i don't have a good signal, and/ or if I do have a bit of a signal to my luck, why my signal comes and goes. I don't have internet at home at the moment because I am trying to save up to go to school. I am picking up a public business signal from a block away (which I have asked for permission to use), but I only am receiving not much of a signal with the Netgear usb wireless adapter.
I recently built my own gaming pc, spec'd as follows:
Asus Rampage IV Formula Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit I73930k GTX 680 120gb ssd etc.
I have installed Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit with no real problems. Except the internet connection! I have Sky Broadband which has a Sky router. I can connect my laptop wirelessly so i know it works ok. The only way my 'new' desktop will connect to the Sky router is by using an Ethernet cable. It simply cannot connect to it wirelessly.
Got a new Asus laptop. Tried to connect to wireless router, but I always get no network access and an unidentified network. Some data points: I have a D-Link DIR-625. This could be the problem since it is from 2007, but technically it is compatible with Windows 7. All other devices (Windows XP laptops, smartphones, etc.) connect with no problem to the wireless router. The LAN on the new laptop connects fine to the router when I plug it in. Only the wireless does not work. I have read online forums for 4 hours trying to figure things out but haven't had luck. I think I've tried everything. I have attached the ipconfig /all below. Oh, and my computer does not have Bonjour installed, which apparently has caused this issue for others.
Windows IP Configuration Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : VC-PC Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
I recently started using a computer with Windows 7. I have a linksys modem that is wired to a Wireless router and the computer is wired to the router.
After the Windows 7 upgrade, the wireless router stopped working for both wired computers and wireless connections. If I bypass the router and run directly from the modem I get Internet connection again.
I attempted to replace the wireless router with a new one and it's the same issue.
I've disabled IPv6 and tried to manually configure DNS and still no go.
Any thoughts on what may have gone wrong after upgrading to Windows 7 or why the router would suddenly stop working?
i have a brand new toshiba laptop connected wirelessly. however it keeps showing connected however no internet access.i have a notebook as well that is brand new and it connects no problems what so ever.im using windows 7 home premium and 64 bit os.
Just did a clean windows 7 x64 installation on a build a box computer with a new hard drive. Install went fine. Plugged it in to my 3 month old Linksys Wireless G Broadband Router (WRT54GL) and it doesn't recognize that there is any connection at all. Windows says "No connections are available" and troubleshooting can't identify the problem. The light on the router and on the computer comes on. I am running a wired connected XP computer and 2 Win 7 x32 wireless connected computers just fine. Ran ipconfig /all and it came up as follows:
Host Name.................... : Bottomdweller-PC Primary DNS suffix.......... : Node Type ....................: Hybrid
All wires are connected. I've tried booting in Safe mode with networking. I've even connected the computer directly to the cablevision modem. I've installed a USB Linksys wireless adapter and although it installs fine, it doesn't see the router at all. I've also tried reinstalling the router directly on this computer but it doesn't see the router at all.
I've tried setting up a new connection or network, Connecting to a network and choosing a homegroup and sharing option but since you need a network to connect to first I couldn't do it.
I am running windows 7, 64 bit and have been having an issue with my Linksys E1500 router recently that has my ISP
My router will respond to pings from my laptop both wirelessly and when connected via ethernet cable, and will respond to pings from my ISP, but it won't allow my laptop to connect to the internet. I have rest and reconfigured the router a bunch of times, leaving the MAC address alone, cloning it to my laptop's ethernet port, and cloning it to my wireless cards MAC addresses, respectively. None of that allows it to connect. Linksys (Cisco) has been useless in helping both via their site and when contacted, encouraging me to pay $40 to talk to someone who MAY be able to help.
Note: The router worked fine for about 4 months, then one morning, couldn't connect to the internet through it. Have to connect directly from the modem via ethernet cable.
I am on a cabled LAN network with internet access. I can also access the internet through a different wireless router. When I am connected to the LAN by internet access is also through it. I would like to stay connected to the LAN network but at the same time have the internet access through the wireless. Is there a way to set this up?
