Network / Sharing :: DNS Error Constantly Occurring - Some Sites Work Some Don't

Apr 3, 2014

For the past month i have been getting disconnected from my favourite game guild wars 2, after researching the error code it has been linked back to the DNS error. i have restarted, factory reset the router, restarted windows, formatted windows, disabled and re-enabled the Ethernet Port on my computer but have had no success, sometimes restarting the router fixes the problem, and sometimes it doesn't.

I have changed the ipv4 connections to use the Google server addresses, but this did not fix the problem
I have also used the ipconfig/flushdns command which also does not work

The game client Steam will connect, but Team-speak 3 and other websites will not.

Network / Sharing :: Can't Access Certain Sites Until Reboot - TCP / IP

Apr 16, 2014

So yesterday I upgraded from a slow, ancient T1 to Verizon's "Home Fusion" 4G LTE broadband. It's amazing how fast it is, but I seem to have a problem where occasionally I can't connect to certain sites.

For example, I'll be surfing Facebook and all of a sudden it'll just stop connecting and I can't do anything. BUT if I jump over to my laptop (running Windows 7) or my iPad, both of which are on the same network, it works fine.

If I then reboot the Windows 8.1 PC, all of a sudden I can access Facebook again, for awhile, until it craps out again at some point and I need to reboot again. It's not just FB either. This happens with a handful of other random sites as well, but when it does I can still access 99.9% of other sites just fine.

One thing I've noticed is that whenever I can't load a site, it seems like it's almost always waiting for some type of CDN-based content to load. Often if I hit the stop button in the browser the page then shows up immediately.

Like when I first tried loading this site, it just sat there forever and in the lower left corner of the browser it said "Waiting for" then after awhile I just hit X and then eightforums displayed just fine...

Browser doesn't matter. I've tried them all. I've tried flushing DNS, resetting winsock, etc. and nothing works except rebooting. Another odd thing I noticed while messing around is that I don't seem to have a HOSTS file in the normal location. I can't find it anywhere??

At first I thought this new verizon router just has flaky wifi so I switched to a direct connect via ethernet hoping that would solve the problem, but nope. It's definitely not that because like I said when it happens I can jump on my laptop connected to the same network via wifi and I can connect to FB just fine on that machine.

Both machines are running the same firewall/antivirus setup, and this Windows 8.1 machine is free from all malware, rootkits, etc.

Yesterday I tried testing different DNS servers (Google, OpenDNS etc) but that didn't work. But it did lead to something else weird - today if I try to do the same by opening up the TCP/IPv4 properties for my ethernet adaptor I get the following error message:

"In order to configure TCP/IP, you must install and enable a network adaptor card."

I just tried re-installing the latest drivers for the ethernet adaptor but that made no difference (it's an onboard Intel I217-LM). I've also tried different/new ethernet cables just for kicks.

I'm starting to wonder if the fact that my connections look like a mobile phone while my browser headers/useragent etc. identifies them as coming from a desktop machine is confusing some sites/CDNs, etc.?? Although that means all users of Verizon's Home Fusion service would have this problem and that doesn't seem to be the case.

I guess the weirdest thing of all is that if I can't connect to a site like say FB, if I just reboot then I can connect to FB again for awhile, until it decides to crap out again.

Network / Sharing :: Deleting Unwanted WiFi Sites

Sep 26, 2013

I am trying to delete some network connections that I have never used, how they came into being. They are NGSKM, TRENDnet and G4257

They don't appear in net show: netsh wlan show profiles

The only one that appears is ZFHL2, our local network.

Of course, they are not found if I try to delete them with: netsh wlan delete profile name="TRENDnet"

How do I delete them ?

Network / Sharing :: Limited Error On Work / Public WiFi?

Apr 11, 2014

I recently bought a new laptop (Lenovo T440s, Win 8.1 Pro w/ update 1, Intel 7260AC). I've tried connecting via wireless in multiple locations, and haven't had any problems except in one location, which is at my office's public access WiFi. I can get onto the network and get internet access on my win7 laptop, and on my Surface 2. With the new Lenovo it appears that I've connected to the wireless network, but have no internet connection. When I initially select the network I get connected, and can open a web page. But then it switches to a "limited" connection and I no longer have access.

Windows defender/firewall is on. No other security things that I know of (I deleted the Norton trial that came with it).

There is a screen that comes up when I log on with any device that asks you to accept that you will not download porn, steal the firstborn child, etc. I've bookmarked the page and been able to push the button to agree, but I still lose the connection shortly after that.

I don't have the internet connection anywhere on the computer (this isn't just a browser issue).

I've tried reinstalling the wireless driver. No luck. I have the most recent version (17), and I've also tried installing the Intel PROset/wireless software as noted in this thread (BT Public Wifi works on Windows 7 but not Windows

8.). But quite honestly I'm not totally sure what to try doing after that is installed. I ran the diagnosis tool, and got a failure on the ping test (No Response: default gateway, DHCP server).

Network / Sharing :: Adapter Becomes Unresponsive Constantly

May 18, 2013

Only just a few days ago did this problem begin. During any session, my wireless adapter will become totally unresponsive and then all of my media connections will become inactive and disconnected. I try to run an ipconfig and it just lists everything as disconnected.

I am thinking that this isn't a driver problem because the wireless internet works up until this happens. I use a d-link usb-wireless adapter but that shouldn't be the problem because even my ethernet becomes disconnected when this issue occurs.

Network / Sharing :: Acer Aspire V5-571P - Constantly Losing Internet Connection?

Dec 21, 2012

I JUST bought my laptop three weeks ago. Two weeks ago, I started having issues where I would constantly lose my Internet connection (wifi). This is not happening with any other devices in my home, including my IPad and son's laptop. Now it's not recognizing Internet connections at all. Acer wants to charge me, says it a software issue, not hardware. It's an Acer Aspire V5-571P.

Debugging :: Randomly Occurring BSOD With Different Error Codes?

Feb 21, 2014

My computer Bluescreens very randomly without giving much information on what caused it.I can sometimes go a full day without a single bsod and somedays I get 10 within 30 mins. Only connection I've (maybe) figured out is that all these bsod's seem to happen when my comp is connected to internet and either downloading something or sending something. Like when I log into games and try to connect into a server i get bsod...or if I don't I can play that game for hours only to get the bsod when I quit game and return to desktop. Sometimes using chrome just to browse web or switching tracks on spotify can cause issues aswell.

My computer was first bought and build around 2012 with some upgrades such as more ram and new GPU. I've ran this comp with a stable OC of 4.0/4.0 and never before having any problems with either my system heating up or freezing. Now I've returned to stock clocks to rule out any unstable oc.

I'v done pretty much all i know about debugging and trying to figure out which programs/drivers/hardware are causing my system to be so randomly unstable. My head keeps telling me this is some driver related cause it started what seems to be "all of a sudden"

Things I've done:
Return stock OC
Ran memtest for 14 passes = 0 errors
Ran Prime for ~4 hours = 0 errors and temps maxed at 60 c

Network / Sharing :: Remote Desktop Into Win 8 From Win 7 Does Not Work

Sep 15, 2014

Potential client running Windows 8.0 (trying to avoid 8.1) Pavilion g6

Potential host running Win7 pro (fully updated) and the same desktop is the host of the wifi I'm using.

So far working:
-Remote desktop from Windows 8 into win7 (wireless).
-Folder sharing both ways (no homegroup, but direct sharing) (wireless).

Allthough, while uploading from Win7 into Windows 8 it occassionally looses connection, failing upload. However downloading same files from Windows 8 using same network works flawless. Also again using win7 sometimes doesn't find folders until using premade shortcuts. Maybe relevant, or not.

Problem: While trying to use Remote Desktop from Win7 desktop into Windows 8 Pavilion laptop I get that " of these reasons" error.

This while rightclicking on the Windows 8 pc in the win7 view of the network (choosing remote desktop option), so I know that the name is spelled right, it's in the network!!!

So far tried: Setting up Windows 8 to receive remote desktop as given here in these forums, allthough while on
SystemProperties-->Remote-->Advanced I do NOT get the remote desktop menu view, only Remote Assistant settings with hour setup and such.

Tried to connect:
-Both firewalls down, also client Avast down.
-From the network with right mouse click.
-Manually inputting the computer name into Remote Desktop

These PC's are not on the same WIFI, only same network. I Don't know how to get the network host into it's own wifi network. For example, I can't get my iPhone to connect wireless into iTunes because they are not connected into the same wifi, only Windows 8 is "connected" in the wifi, win7 is "merely" sending it, at least that's how I've understood the problem why I must upload/download stuff with manual wire connection with my phone.

Network / Sharing :: Connecting To Work Domain?

Mar 28, 2013

I brought my laptop to work and wanted to connect to my work's network so I could access our shared networks. In the past I was able to log into my work's domain, nahrc, with my user name and password via the ctrl+alt+dlt method fromt he log on screen. I can plug in the ethernet cable into my laptop, and the nahrc network appears in the wired connections area, but I can't seem to connect/access our shared drives. Is it possible to log into my laptop like you could in windows 7 and access my account, or is this just not possible anymore.

Network / Sharing :: Can't Get Wireless LAN Adapter To Work

Jun 20, 2014

I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y500 laptop running Windows 8.1. i7, 8BG ram, 2GB Nvidia card--all that stuff. It ran perfectly for nearly a year. But now, the local area network is broken. I haven't done anything different or changed anything that would affect it, as far as I know. But now that it's summer, I have lots of free time but I can not lan any games with people, which sucks. So I googled and googled, tried the netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt (or whatever it is), tried ipconfig resets and stuff, and none of that works. The wireless lan adapter Media State is still "Media disconnected."

I took this screenshot AFTER I did OneKey Recovery (which is a factory reset). It set my computer back to the original settings: Windows 8, full of bloatware, etc. I did this reset last night, updated it, updated it to Windows 8.1, updated Windows 8.1, and finally, before I went to bed, tested the LAN. It worked, I was able to connect to my Dad's Minecraft world. So I set my laptop to start re-downloading my games (reset deleted all my data), and when I opened it up this morning to play Minecraft with my family, the LAN was not working again. I couldn't connect (or even find) the lan games.

Network / Sharing :: Brand New HP Laptop WiFi Does Not Work

May 29, 2014

I bought an HP laptop brand new from Best Buy. It had a 750gb hard drive, Intel Core i3-3130M processor, 4GB RAM, and Windows 8.1. I made restore discs of the hard drive that came with the computer, and then disassembled the entire laptop to access the hard drive and swapped it out for a 128gb SSD. I reassembled everything once I successfully used the restore discs to boot using the SSD.

The good news is: my SSD works great. My computer takes about 3 seconds to load up!

The bad news is: I cannot get the Wireless Internet to work for the life of me. I have gotten it to connect wirelessly a few times. I even got it to connect uninterrupted for a few hours, long enough to download my usual virus protection and whatnot. Now, it will not connect at all.

Details: Airplane mode is off. Wi-Fi is on. I am on a college campus with campus-wide Wi-Fi. Many people around me are actively connected. It is not a problem with the router. However, my Networks show "No Networks Found." Maybe 1 out of 20 times I check for wireless networks, it will show the school's networks. If I try to connect to it, it says "Can not connect to this network."

I don't think that anything I did inside of the laptop physically altered the network adapter. The only thing I touched anywhere near there was a motherboard plug for the keyboard, which I removed and replaced. The problem is, I do not know for sure if the WiFi worked flawlessly before I switched out the hard drives because I never intended to use the hard drive that came with the computer. I turned on the computer long enough to make restore discs before I took it apart. I vaguely remembered seeing a limited connectivity alert but I didn't think anything of it because I was in the midst of making restore discs and had no reason to use the Internet. I suspect that it is not an internal issue because I have gotten it to connect successfully since I switched drives. Also, plugging the laptop in with an Ethernet cord allows me to access the Internet. However, this is not feasible for when I need to use the laptop away from home.

I have read multiple threads stating issues with Windows 8.1 having major Wi-Fi connection issues, including those I am describing. However, all of the things I have done do not seem to be working. I've tried allowing HP Support Assistant to recommend a driver, I've manually downloaded drivers, I've altered the settings to keep my computer from putting my adapter in "sleep" mode. None of these things have worked.

Network / Sharing :: Can Only Get WiFi To Work At Home - Media Disconnected

Nov 9, 2013

My wifi only works correctly at home. When at home, I have no problem and a good, solid internet connection. When I am anywhere else (friend's house, school, work, even my phone personal hotspot), I can connect to the internet with no problem, and it even shows as "internet" on the wifi screen so I know it is getting it. However, when I attempt to load a webpage it shows as if there is no internet. I have tried Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. I have done the ipconfig renew and release, when I do release it says "media disconnected". I have also tried forgetting the network and reconnecting.

Unfortunately I don't have access to the internet in these locations to troubleshoot.

Network / Sharing :: Can Add Printer But Print Test Page Does Not Work

Jul 18, 2013

I have a home network with an XP system with a printer attached and shared. A Windows 7 laptop and my old XP laptop from work can print fine, but a new Windows 8 laptop won't print. Sharing from the XP system works as I can read files from the XP system on the new Windows 8 system. When I do an Add Printer on the Windows 8 laptop, I can see the network printer and install it and the driver so the printer shows up as installed on the Windows 8 system. The Print Test Page does not work nor printing from WordPad. I turned off the Firewall on the XP system in case that was the problem.

So it almost seems that my laptop's wireless is in worse shape now.. before it was sporadic but now with the updated and recommended card, I cant connect.

Could not reconnect all network drives error at boot? I get it most of the time with a wired Ethernet connection. I've done a lot of searching and tried different things but nothing seems to work. This started a few months ago, was not there initially with Windows 8, 8.1 or 8.1.1.

With XP, you could do this to fix it:

Control Panel

Folder Options


Uncheck "Automatically search for network folders and printers"

This is no longer an option in Windows 8 (I think it disappeared with Vista).

Network / Sharing :: Unexpected Error When Trying To Access Network Adapter

May 3, 2013

As the title says, I'm getting a box saying "An unexpected error has occurred" whenever I try and access the properties window for my ethernet adapter. An unexpected power outage earlier in the day rendered my Windows 8 installation half messed up, leaving most of my drivers corrupt, so I had to attempt a refresh today, which solved most of my problems.

Unfortunately others like this have been cropping up since the refresh. I've looked for other possible solutions to this problem, and none have worked so far. Re-registering DLL files solved nothing, a system file check didn't do anything, and making sure I was in the correct user groups didn't solve anything either.

Then I try again after a minute or so:

All my shares have their security set to allow full access to EVERYONE and are shared through your usual share and specify permission. I don't bother with Home group as this 30 second access denied routine makes the home group unusable.

I have a few other computers on the network and they all do the same thing to every other computer.
