Network / Sharing :: Can't Get Allow Access To WiFi Router

Jan 19, 2014

Yesterday I purchased a new Dell Laptop. In the setup and configuration the unit found my wireless network. I have two other PC's (not windows 8) two Kindles, two Cell phones and an IPAD on this router and all the Dell would say it it can't connect to this network. It won't ask for the passkey, it provides no additional information and I can't get online in my own network with this system. I can however log on to a neighbors unsecured network effortlessly.

I am using an old airlink 101 wireless router that has been trouble free for several years. I tried to log onto airlink for a support inquiry but they no longer provide support for this model.

Network / Sharing :: Restricted Access On WiFi While DVR Plugged Into Router

May 31, 2013

I have broadband from virgin media with one of their superhubs made by netgear, I have a CCTV DVR plugged into this using a regular cat5 cable, the DVR will allow you to view 4 cctv cameras via the internet,

Android and blackberry phones can both connect to the router using wifi, an IBM laptop running XP also has no problems, the only thing that does have a problem is a new Toshiba laptop running windows 8,

If the DVR is plugged into router before win 8 connects then the Windows 8 machine cannot log on using wifi, it gives message saying restricted access and has no internet access, if you unplug the DVR Windows 8 machine logs on fine you can then plug DVR back in and laptop can browse all day with no problems, if you log off then try and log on again you get the same restricted access message again ...

Network / Sharing :: QoS Ignored By Access Point Router

Aug 8, 2014

I am sharing my internet connection with my roommates, but lately they have been using P2P to download stuff which uses almost all the internet speed available. I have set up QoS to limit their bandwidth in the main Asus wifi router which directly connects to the modem, it works great for a few days, but then it doesn't work anymore, I still get slow internet speed now. Since my flat has 2 wifi routers, one is the main and another one is set up with a different name but still connects to the main router via the ethernet cable a few metres away so that the wireless range is increased. Just for your information, the two routers are transmitting on different channel, if you think that might be the cause and they have different SSID.

Could it be possible that the QoS only works in the main wifi router and doesn't affect the other wifi router which my roommates also have access to it?

I have changed the default router password so I am sure that they have no access to the router's settings.

Network / Sharing :: Virtual WiFi Router Not Working After Upgrade To Win 8.1

Mar 25, 2014

I use a small usb modem for my internet access and using a usb wifi adaptor and a virtual wifi router I was able to share my internet around home quite affordably.

Every now and again the software 'virtualrouter' would cause a crash. Maybe once every 3 months.

When I updated to 8.1 the software no longer worked, nor did any other. What's more it cause a DPC-Watchdog violation within a few minutes.

When I say the software doesn't run, one of two things happen. My old program 'virtualrouter' runs as normal, but none of my devices can connect. The network is available, but connection is impossible.

With other programs I get told that the wifi adaptor is not enabled. Which it is.

Something has changed in the upgrade and I don't know what. Every option and test I've run and enabling of virtualisation says that it should work. But then the BSOD arrives.

Network / Sharing :: Can Linksys Router Block Access To Network

Jan 3, 2014

Since I changed the security parameters to my Linksys Wireless Router so my grandson could log in while visiting me on his laptop. I can't seem to be able to access my other computer on my home network. Enclosed is an "ipconfig/all" screenshot. I need to access my printer on my other printer which I was able to do prior to playing around with my router. All the diagnostics say more or less the same thing. They can "see" the computer but it isn't responding...

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 Breaks Network With Two WiFi Access Points

May 10, 2014

I have two wifi APs in the home and only one has an Internet connection. the other is to access the wired LAN.

Last week I updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 and thought everything was going well until I started getting wired LAN dropouts.

I have traced it back to 8.1 handling connection to wifi APs. In Windows 8, I was able to have "Connect automatically" for BOTH wifi adapters on this laptop. Now when I try to connect to the non-Internet AP, Windows 8.1 announces (correctly) "Limited access" and that's what Windows 8 did too. BUT, Windows 8.1 waits a few seconds then drops the connection with a useless message, "how me solve connection problems," where there is NO problem. A limited connection for the AP to the wired LAN is OK as it was in 8.

So now I am stuck with no home LAN access unless I drop the Internet AP and connect to the LAN AP.

Also, in the great wisdom of 8.1, because it is only a "limited" connection, it does not remember the Passphrase so I have to type it in every time. So much for progress.

What to do to get past this behavior and have a "limited" connection as OK as it is with Windows 8?

Network / Sharing :: How To Access Shared Folder In LAN Via WIFI

Mar 13, 2014

3 computers connected in LAN, with a shared folder/drive. Suppose I have access to the WIFI on the same network.

I have access to the router also(means I can type in browser, and can login). Then in DHCP hosts I can see the connected computers ip address.

Then how will I access the shared folder? I don't know the server name. How will we find out the server name?

I don't know the name of shared folder also. How will we find out the shared folder in the network?

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 - HP Pavilion WiFi Access Point

Sep 15, 2014

I have a HP Pavillion x360 i3 2 in 1 laptop. I am having problems with the wifi staying connected, and when the laptop is connected to wifi the internet speeds are slow. The speeds are slow as in I cannot stream videos on youtube without constant pausing, and even downloading something as simple as google chrome takes much longer than it is supposed to. In my house there are plenty of other devices that are connected including my old laptop, which, has no problems downloading/streaming and iphones, and an ipad.

All of the other devices except my new HP laptop has no problem streaming and downloading. The laptop is extremely new;less than a week old. I have tried updating the network driver, resetting the network driver, and disconnecting then reconnecting the wifi; yet the problem keeps occurring. I do have MacAfee so I guess that could pose a problem, but I am unsure. The adapter I use is a Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565, with internet provided by COMCAST. It could be an adapter problem, but because of the other devices working fine I do not think that the problem is from the adapter. Also, the OS is Windows 8.1...

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Laptop - WiFi Connection Limited / Cannot Access Internet On Browsers

Sep 8, 2013

My Windows 8 laptop is having some WiFi connection issues.

Basically what happens is that every 5-20 minutes I cannot access the internet on browsers and the wifi connection is listed as "Limited".

The laptop: ASUS Vivobook S200E

The WiFi: Sky wireless router (no idea about model, it's almost two years old) But what I will say is that my Windows 7 laptop never skips a beat on this network, nor does my wife's Mac, nor do our 2 Android tablets, the iPad, the iPhone, the Android phone, and various devices that our friends connect when they come round. Literally no other device has any problems on this network, so I know (by the process of elimination) the Windows 8 laptop is the one with the problem.

In order to fix the issue I have to disconnect from the network, wait about 30 sec and reconnect again.

Network / Sharing :: Lenovo G505 Laptop - Cannot Connect To Home Network - BT Router

Dec 30, 2013

I have a lenovo G505 laptop - it will no longer connect to my BT home hub despite it showing as being available. I suspect it might be to do with the fact that it is has a passkey - I entered it yesterday when prompted and it connected fine, but now I'm not being given the option of entering the key.

I've also tried connected using the BT wifi (as opposed to homehub) but once again it will not connect me. I've been through all the troubleshooting options, and searched under every term I can think of, but nothing is working.

Network / Sharing :: Connecting To Router - Get Unidentified Network?

Jan 23, 2014

Wifi worked, walked away for 10 minutes, then found that it didn't. I would normally just reset the router, but I live in an apartment building and the router is in my landlords office.

When I did ipconfig /all, my ip started with 169, which I know isn't normal. But when I try to do a /release and /renew, I get the error "No operation can be performed on local area connection *14 while it has it's media disconnected." I am unable to attempt a wired connection, as the router is not accessible to me.

.I'm not sure if this is a router issue, or an issue with my laptop (less than a year old.) I am a grad student and I currently have to do most of my work via my iphone, which is getting very inconvenient.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 - Router Web Config Page

Since upgrading to 8.1 , if I try and access my routers web page to change some config settings , the browser (and I've tried 4 different ones) connects to the web interface REALLY REALLY slowly... we're talking 5-10 minutes just to show part of the menu UI and even then not all the graphics show.

I can connect to the same interface using my tablet and it's instant...

Under Windows 8.0 it worked just fine also...

General web browsing is fine as is internet access for gaming etc...

Network / Sharing :: No Gateway Default On Router - Cant Setup

Sep 15, 2014

I'm trying to set up my router to the new internet connection and get the wifi going but for the life of me I cant get it set up. The internet connection itself is fine, from modem to pc. Once I have the modem in the mix,it gets no/limited connectivity and cannot reach the setups. I have tried the classic and and about 5 other variations, along with 'http://router'. My router is a Belkin N300 Wireless N Router. If I use a command prompt and do 'ipconfig', there is no ip address beside 'gateway default' once the router is connected. I have reset my router to factory settings. I've tried using a static ip address for my computer [though not sure if i did it correctly]. My DHCP is enabled.
