Network / Sharing :: Toshiba Laptop - No Network Connections Available
Aug 20, 2014
On my Toshiba laptop (I've only had it since the 8th of August) under Networks it says, "No connections are available". I was playing Diablo3 and then it suddenly said not connected to battletnet. That is besides the point, but I think I might have hit something that turned the wifi off. After failing to fix it with a system restore it blue screened saying something about an error and collecting a data and that it was going to restart itself. Then it said to get more information or something like that the error code was MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. After restarting I thought it was still messed up (it showed no networks available in the lock screen) then I logged on and it still did. Then it showed I was connected to WiFi again, then after leaving for a few brief minutes it was back to no connections available. It did the blue screen thing again and restarted.
My 8.1 laptop shows multiple network connections to my Samsung Smart TV --- One as "media connections" and 3 as "other connections". Both devices are on a simple wireless network using Linksys WRT54GS.
Under the "Network" page, most of the "Properties" of the TV connections are the same except for "Serial Number" and "Unique Identifier". Did I do something wrong when setting things up? Are these extra connections harmful? Should I delete some? How?
My computer has 2 wireless cards and a gigabit ethernet port. I have my own internet and my neighbors each allow me to connect to their internet. If I were to set the Wi-Fi to connect to theirs, and the ethernet to connect to my internet would I be able to take advantage of the extra bandwidth?
I'm trying to create a shortcut to "Control PanelNetwork and InternetNetwork Connections". I am not able to. Is there something about going to this folder that is forbidden?" If I have inserted the incorrect path please give me the correct answer.
I am preparing a lesson and a short cut to the adapters will make it easier.
I am having a problem with bridging my connection I have been online look around and I could not seem to find anything that has worked ok basically I have 2 connections I want to bridge together but after is done bridging no bridge appears under network adapter settings ?
So I just got a custom built computer with Windows 8.1 installed on it, When I go to settings > Networks, It says No Connections are Available, every other device in the house has connection to our WiFi.
I have my ethernet cable connected right now, but I can't even load my wifi connections at all. I live in apartments so everyone around me has wifi and my phone and iPad is clearly connected, but it won't load any connections.
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.
So I've set up my desktop PC to function as a portable WiFi hotspot for my other mobile devices. First I used the Cmd Prompt to create a sharing network, but since I had to open that every time I started up the computer, I switched to using a program called MyPublicWiFi (1 click setup).
However, in the last few days, my WiFi connection was getting kind of buggy. (No internet connection with my phone while I was connected to the WiFi network, etc)
Just now, I looked at the Network Connections, and there are 3 LAN connections that weren't there before. (picture: [URL] ....) Are they part of the problem, and how do I remove those networks?
Live Tiles missing. I recently refreshed my comp. as i had issues with my live tiles as you can see in the link above. And now none of my tiles connect to the internet. I checked my connections, which is fine.
I keep getting a constant error msg saying that the tiles cannot be displayed as there are no internet connections available.
My fully updated Windows 8.1 notebook suddenly will not show any wifi connections when I click on the icon in the system tray (it shows "No Connections are Available", although it is connected, and I can surf and browse normally).
To connect to a new network, I have to manually enter the details of the network, and then it connects. This is something new, since previously it would show all the available networks, and allow me to make a selection (which is normal). What setting could have flipped do enable the above situation?
I user FTP & Telnet a lot to connect to devices on our LAN.
With Windows 8 I've been using ZoneAlarm as my firewall as I found Windows Firewall caused a 5 -10 second delay in every FTP / Telnet Connection.
Last night I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and ZoneAlarm no longer works, so I'm back with the Windows Firewall and the delay in connections.
I've ensured the APPS I use have access via the firewall and they do connect and work fine... but after establishing the connection there is a 5 - 10 second delay in the connection. With ZA this was all instant..
I have a new Dell laptop with Windows 8.1 - I work from home & connect to the internet via my home wifi network. The problem I have been experiencing is that my laptop connects to the internet at boot up but then disconnects for several minutes & then re-connects again. This coincides with the Network & Sharing Centre showing a number of Local Area Connections (numbered 3,4,5,6 etc) being created under Unidentified Public Networks. I have tried disabling the LAC's but they re-enable whenever I re-boot & I have the same issues again. My networking knowledge is very limited so how to rectify this issue.
The computer turn off the wireless connections and defaults into airplane mode. I had this problem with Windows 8. The option to easily toggle airplane mode on and off become grayed out unchangeable. The only way I found to temporarily fix the problem was to rightclick the airplane icon and then troubleshoot the wireless connections which would then turn wireless back on. I had the option to upgrade to 8.1 and I did and it fixed the problem for a while. It did happen again which is why I'm back on the web searching for possible more permanent solution for this. Luckily it only happened once a week ago and hasn't happened again. I was wondering if this bug was known about and if you possibly know of a way to fix.
I'm new to Win 8.1 but I'm fairly tech-savvy. I've got a new Toshiba Satellite S55 B5289 with Win 8.1, connecting to the Internet via Time-Warner over wifi. I'd go into the details of the wifi and router, but given that I've got a month-old HP with Win 7, and a 2-year old Samsung Chromebook sitting here with the Toshiba, all three running Chrome as opposed to IE, and the other two getting significantly better speed, I don't think those details are really critical.
This problem has been going on since I brought the new laptop home, but I've carefully uninstalled all the bloatware that came pre-installed, and made the standard Chrome tweaks [unchecking the hardware accelleration] nothing has worked. Yesterday I took it to a friend who has a computer repair business and he tuned up a lot of the things inside Win 8.1 that I had no clue about - as I understood it, making 8.1 run Chrome without going *through* IE. I didn't pay as much attention to that as I should have, but essentially everything seemed to be working very well. His Internet connection, however, is lightning fast, and connecting to that wifi, things were downloading and running spectacularly well. Just what I'd expected - or at least hoped for - when I bought it.
Using it at home today, the problems have resurfaced. Loading emails, for instance, is not quite right. Images in the emails frequently don't load properly - it will stutter and often stops in the middle of an email. If I click on a link, there can be a significant delay before the page loads. Videos buffer every few seconds and even when I let the entire video load, it still plays spastically.
All of this is in Chrome, using tabs - which I always do. Yes, of course I could clear the cache, start fresh, use no tabs, let one thing load at a time, but that's not what I have ever done, so this is real world testing. The most telling detail, though is the download speeds I'm getting.
Running Speedtest on all three machines, the ping is basically the same, but on the Toshiba, it frequently can't even finish the download test. It just stalls to a halt. The Chromebook gets a download speed of 5.75 and the HP gets 21.31. We pay Time-Warner for 20, so I'd really like to see something like that on the Toshiba.
I bought i new TOSHIBA Satellite C55D - A - 15H it came with windows 8.1 but I didn't liked it so I installed Windows 7 Ultimate and now i'm getting slow wireless and Ethernet speeds. I tried to reinstall drivers and so on. Btw other computers are getting much more Internet speed than i'm getting.
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.
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
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.
I have a frustrating problem on my Windows 8.1 laptop that only started a couple of weeks ago.
Previously, whenever I resumed my laptop from sleep mode, the network would always be instantly available too. I've always been impressed with the speeds of resuming from sleep in Windows 8, it's all pretty instant and means I can get straight back to browsing etc once I've entered my password.
Now, if I wake the laptop from sleep, I enter my password and the network appears to not be available for about a minute or so. Then it functions normally, but it's very, very frustrating as I can't work out the cause. When I resume, if I try and refresh webpages, I get 'network not available' errors in Chrome, but the monitors (I use Network Activity Indicator) in the system tray don't show a loss of network connectivity (i.e - there is no red 'X' over the wireless signal bars)
Sometimes, if when entering my password I get it incorrect, it will say "PC is offline. Please enter the last password you logged on with" - I am assuming this is also due to the above problem.
Why could this have suddenly started happening? No settings have changed/been changed on the router side.
I just bought a msi s30 laptop yesterday. So everything went fine when I test the wifi connection before I go to sleep. When I say fine, I mean I could connect to the internet. Then when I woke up this morning, I turn on the wifi but it says "no network found". I check the router and it is working perfectly fine. I also checked the device driver and its also working properly.
I was trying to configure the WiFi on this laptop when I 'discover' this. You cant configure the network by doing a right click over the net I want to configure. This means that I cant change the password of this WiFi connection and so on.
Im not sure whats wrong. It was installed from this MICROSOFT.WINDOWS.8.1.PROFESSIONAL.RTM.X64.VOLUME. WITH.ROLLUP-1.ENGLISH.DVD-WZT and nothing more.
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.
This morning I installed an optional update from Windows Update. It was Ralink Technology WLAN 802.11 wireless LAN card.
Since then, when I try to print to my wireless network printer, the network would disconnect then come back on after a while. The update shows up in Update History as successfully installed but not in the installed updates. System restore is of no support here. The network configuration page shows normal. The web does not appear to be affected. I made a new network connection for the printer but it did not work.
Is there a way to reverse this update or should I uninstall the 802.11 LAN card and let windows re-install anew.
I installed Windows 8.1 build 9471 into my desktop. I use a TP Link TL-WN781ND wireless adapter to access my home network and the internet. I tried copying the drivers from Windows/System32/Drivres and installing them manually, I also downloaded the exe from the site but they still wouldnt connect. It would just say no connections found.
I'm trying to allow my win xp desktop pc to be able to access the hard disk on my win 8 laptop.
I put them in the same workgroup and then map the laptop's disk on the desktop pc. I can now see the laptop's disk in "network drives" in the xp but when I try to open it, I get an error message that I am not allowed to access it.
So, back at windows 8, I go to my disk Properties, Security tab and try to Add permissions for the winxp pc, which is what I think I'm supposed to do to solve my problem. However, at the "Select Users or Groups" window, I click on Locations and the only thing that appears is the Windows 8 laptop. Isn't the desktop pc supposed to be appearing over there as well? I can't add permissions for a pc that doesn't exist in Locations.
I have a lenovo thinkpad edge E520 running on Windows 8. I have used this computer to connect to internet before but has all the sudden stopped working. I have tried connecting using a ethernet cable and also wifi but it continues to say limited access. I have tried updating the drivers and have also tried restoring the laptop to a later date but neither worked. I know my internet is working because I use the internet on my boyfriends laptop and also have playstation 3 and xbox 360 hooked up to my internet.
Just signed up to mobile contract and was given a Sony Xperia T especially good for tethering, I was told (!). Followed the setup on the phone - all good. Except my laptop running windows 8, shows limited connectivity - strong signal though.
I have scanned forums to try and find an answer and have none so far. I get wifi connection from the flat share that I am in, works pretty well, never limited connection.
