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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Windows 8.1 Deleting Wireless Adapters?

Jul 1, 2014

I'm using a relatively new HP Split X2 (bought new in Dec.), and almost every day I lose internet connection due to wireless adapters being missing. I have only been using the computer to watch Netflix and listen to music. Usually the internet disconnects in the middle of an episode on Netflix, and after being on hold with HP for over an hour tonight

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 - Specific Network Settings Based On WiFi Network

Aug 2, 2013

Is there a way to setup network profiles or something so that when I bring my Surface Pro to work and connect to the wireless network there it will use the static ip address I have but when I disconnect and then connect to my home wifi it will go back to DHCP? On my MacBook Pro I can go into the network settings and change the location profile I have setup for networks but I don't see anything like this for Windows 8.

Network / Sharing :: Limited WiFi Network Connectivity On Windows 8 Laptop

Jun 9, 2014

I purchased a new Windows 8, Inspiron 15 7000 series - 7537 last December. I had been using a router at a hotel for the time, and it worked correctly. When I arrived home, I had a Belkin router, and i experienced network issues in that i could not connect to the wifi. I could connect with Ethernet cable. The problem was fixed through customer support eventually, but I now have a new Comcast router, and i'm experiencing what appears to be the same or a similar issue. I can access the internet fine by wire. With wifi, it says i have access to the internet over the internet icon in the bottom right, but i cannot access webpages. I can use skype, and communicate through it.

Here is the result from the ipconfig /all :

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200]
(c) 2012 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:Windowssystem32>ipconfig /all
Windows IP Configuration

[Code] .....

I really need the wifi on this router working for this laptop. Let me note that it works on other laptops, so it should be an issue with hardware or settings on this laptop.

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 :: Cannot Auto-reconnect To WiFi Network With Hidden SSID

Dec 7, 2012

I prefer to keep my home WiFi network from public view by disabling the SSID broadcast, i.e "hiding" the network.

With two modem/routers (a Belkin Play Max F7D4401 ADSL modem/router and now a Cisco EPC2325 DOCSIS modem/router) on two computers (home-built desktop and Acer TM8172T notebook), after the initial connection Windows 8 Pro would not reconnect without tediously re-entering the SSID name and password. Once it does connect, it displays the original SSID name with a new one with an incrementally increasing appended number like:

I was manually deleting them all (except the original) using netsh, until I realized you can <right-click> on an entry in the screen above and choose "Forget this network."

This is the process I go through each time to re-connect. Is there something I'm missing?

I read that if Windows 8 saves too many WiFi connections, it cannot "remember" them to automatically reconnect to them, so on the notebook, I deleted all but wpcTrue (the original), and it now automatically reconnects, although occasionally it will add a new connection with an incrementally increased number -- currently the notebook shows both wpcTrue and wpcTrue 2. I had used the notebook on the road, so had about five WiFi connections saved. On the Desktop my home network is the only WiFi connection I've ever made. However, no matter what I do on the desktop, it NEVER remembers to automatically log on when the SSID is not broadcast.

I even tried manually setting up a connection via Network and Sharing Center > Set up a new connection or network, to no avail -- the desktop computer will not automatically reconnect.

I doubt that this is relevant, but the Belkin modem/router, the Belkin USB adapter I use on my desktop computer, and the notebook's Broadcom internal modem are all b/g/n. The Cisco modem/router is b/g.

If I "unhide" the SSID, i.e. broadcast the SSID, all is well in the world. Both computers automatically reconnect to the modem/router. If I hide the SSID, and then disconnect or reboot, the desktop computer will not automatically reconnect.

I just noticed that the pop up WiFi connection column shows "WiFi-2 Off" -- what does the "Off" mean?

And, why is it "-2" ? My notebook just shows "WiFi', period. (The first image with "WiFi (Off)" was from a previous Windows 8 installation on the desktop computer. I decided to change from EFI-boot to non-EFI so reinstalled Windows 8. I simply used the old image as a quick way to show how the connection name assignment runs away.)

Network / Sharing :: Sharing WiFi Connection To Another Computer Via Ethernet

Jun 16, 2013

My ISP provides service only via 802.11. I use laptop A most of the time. The captive portal for the service provider only allows one login per account at a time. The policy is intended to prevent multiple people sharing one account. It's just me, I'm the only user, but very occasionally I'd like to have a 2nd laptop access the internet simultaneously. No abuse, just the simple convenience of not having to logout from A if I need to use B for 30 seconds.

What I want to set up seems simple and it probably is:

WiFi Internet <---> Laptop A <---> ethernet cable <---> Laptop B

Such that Laptop B can share A's active WiFi connection without having to request its own unique address from the ISP.

At present, Laptop A has its network interfaces set up so:
- WiFi is connected, active, functional. Selected the "Yes turn on sharing and connect to devices" in sidebar.
- Under the wired network properties IP Version 4, I manually set addresses to be

Laptop B has only a wired network, set to

A & B can connect directly to each other, share folders, etc.

What do I need to do in order to get laptop B to transparently use A's WiFi connection? My guess is that A needs to be set up to do some routing between the internet side and the 192.168.10 subnet, and B needs to be set up to look to A as its "ISP" ... but I don't know where to begin.

Network / Sharing :: WiFi Connects To Other Networks But Not Home Network

Feb 27, 2013

My laptop is few months old HP Pavilion g6 OS: Windows 8 uses a ralink rt5390r 802.11bgn wifi adapter.

The wifi was working just fine suddenly it stopped. It detects my home network but every time it tries to connect ends up "unable to connect to this network". It connects to my friends wifi but not mine. And it connects with cable.

There is a red cross on the wifi network but it's green not GREY. It is not a modem problem because the other PC connects just fine. When I'm on wifi, cmd ipconfig gives me disconnected media for all the network cards on the laptop. Command netsh shows failure and access denied.

What I have tried to do for the past week :

I upgraded the adapter/ driver. My windows is fully updated. I re-installed the network card. I tried a USB wifi. I uninstalled the private server. I uninstalled my Norton because I thought it was blocking the connection I also deactivated the windows fire wall. I changed the SSID and PSW ... nothing worked. and of course I tried restarting, resetting, rebooting, deactivating and activating, disabling and enabling every single thing but nothing works.

Network / Sharing :: WIFI Keeps Disconnecting?

Apr 26, 2014

I have a new windows 8 machine (Dell Inspiron 2350), and there is a problem with the WIFI keeps disconnecting. I have determined that it seems to primarily happen whenever I am downloading any large files. When the computer is sitting idle or I am just browsing it doesn't seem to happen.

I do not have any such issue with my Windows 7 laptop or mobile devices.

I have already tried all the suggestions found elsewhere about changing the power management settings, and have already disabled "allow computer to turn off this device to save power".

I already have the latest driver, and have updated the bios.

Network / Sharing :: Cannot Connect To WIFI

Feb 5, 2013

I have a brand new Lenovo Ideapad Z585. It has a Broadcom Wireless adapter that will not connect to my home wireless network. I have tried everything I can think of to get it to connect to my Netgear router.

When I run Windows diagnostic tools it tells me that there is a problem with the wireless access point, there isn't I am using another laptop with no issues.

I have done a rescue install and gone through the same problems. This time the diagnostic report tells me I have not chosen a network to connect to despite entering the usual SSID, security type and password details in the network centre.

Networks are detected OK, I click on my network, am asked for the password and weither I wanted to share on the network, click ok and after a couple of seconds I am advised 'could not connect to network'

I have spent about 6 hours today trying to resolve this. The ethernet works fine.

I am completely ignorant of WIndows 8, this being my first computer to use it.

Network / Sharing :: WiFi Cuts Out Every Few Minutes?

Jul 6, 2013

I recently bought a new desktop PC. I've had it a few weeks and for some reason I've recently been having trouble with the wireless. I can verify that the problem is with the computer, as my old laptop, my phone, and other devices all seem to be doing fine and don't experience the same problem. As the title says, every few minutes, the WiFi stops. It doesn't go completely, it simply changes to the picture with the asterisk (*) in the bottom right. This happens for only a couple of seconds before it goes back to normal. Then, it will happen again after a few minutes. This is completely infuriating when trying to watch videos online.

Sometimes when I use the troubleshooter it finds a problem with the WiFi adapter and resets it, and then says the issue is fixed.

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 :: WiFi On / Off Switch Is Grayed Out

Apr 11, 2014

I was playing a game on my laptop and decided to switch from wifi to ethernet. I plugged in the ethernet and turned off the wifi switch to ensure it switched over, but later when I tried to turn wifi back on, I see the wifi on/off switch is grayed out.

I went to my device manager to check for wifi network adapter driver updates, but everything seemed pretty up to date.

Any recommendations on how to fix this? Or at the least another method of turning the wifi on, like through command prompt or something?

Network / Sharing :: WiFi Randomly Disconnects?

Jul 21, 2013

Sometimes when I am working on my laptop doing whatever it just disconnects me out of the blue. It shows this stupid icon and says that there are no connections possible:

At first, I did not know what to do so I just began doing some random things on the network center. Then I figured out how to solve it:

First open network center

Then, Open adapter settings

Disable your Wifi network card

Next, Enable it again

And then your internet connection is back again

Now this works fine on short term, it takes like less then one minute.

Network / Sharing :: Scan For Available WiFi Connections?

Jul 5, 2013

When I turn on my Toshiba Satellite laptop, it does not see my i-phone hotspot. Wi-Fi status says "No Wi-Fi connections available". I always have to turn the hotspot off and then back on after the laptop is up and running for the laptop to find it. This does not happen with my desktop. It sees the i-phone hotspot without the need to cycle the hotspot off and back on, so I'm thinking that it has to do with the Toshiba rather than the i-phone. Both laptop and desktop are running Windows 8. Not a big problem, but I thought some one may know of a setting which I need to change.

Network / Sharing :: WiFi Says Limited Every Few Minutes?

Sep 9, 2013

When I am connected to my college's network, it works just fine, but every few minutes or so, my WiFi network connection suddenly goes to "Limited" and I lose my internet access. It doesn't actually disconnect, but it just says it is limited. If I disconnect and reconnect, it works fine, but then a couple minutes later it does it again. I can't seem to see any pattern to it, but sometimes I think it happens more when I am in a full-screen application like a game or Netflix or something. Also, this only seems to happen in my dorm building. If I go to another building, and connect, it seems that the problem goes away.
