Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Laptop Lenovo Y510p Suddenly Can't Connect To Router

Oct 15, 2013

I just got a new Windows 8 laptop, a Lenovo Y510p, and I've been having several wireless issues with it. Pretty early on my computer froze up so I had to force it to shut down. After resolving the issue, I was unable to load any websites, however a flush of the dns cache fixed the problem right up. Fast forward a few hours, and suddenly I can't connect to the router in my dorm room-I just suddenly lost my connection and now I can't reconnect.

My roommate has a router set up for our room connected to an internet jack in the wall. It is configured as WPA2-PSK. I usually connect to this when in the room, but now I can't-windows just says "can't connect to this network". There is wifi throughout the dorm already, which I can connect to just fine, however the signal isn't as strong.

This is a link to my ipconfig : ipconfig -

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 :: Error / Can't Connect To Wireless Router (WEP Encryption)

Nov 26, 2012

I bought an Asus G75vw couple days back with windows 8. Everything was working fine except that i couldn't connect to my wireless router. It had a WEP encryption. After I entered the Network Security key, I Kept on getting "Can't connect to this network", troubleshooting didn't work either. Then I updated all drivers from Asus support website and it connected after a restart. I was quite delighted but the next day again i got the "cant connect to this network" message. So I changed my encryption to WPA2-PSK (AES) and even updated the firmware of my router. Still no luck.

Network / Sharing :: Modem Router Replaced - Desktop Computer Won't Connect To Internet

Sep 15, 2014

Two days ago my ISP replaced my modem-router for a new one. Ever since the replacement, my main desktop computer won't connect to the internet "immediately". I checked the connection via ethernet and WiFi with my other computers (even tested every single one of my ethernet cables) and they work perfectly fine, except for my main desktop computer.

What my desktop does:

When I turn it on I have to wait for around an hour before it connects to the internet. During that hour, it attempts to identify something (I guess the IP? - the yellow warning icon gets displayed) and after 3 seconds of attempting, the connection drops and it goes back to saying "No connection". The connection is being made via Ethernet cable and I tried the troubleshoot but it continues to say that I need to plug-in a ethernet cable to my computer, thing is it is already plugged in and like I stated above, the cable worked fine with all my other computers. My desktop used to work perfectly fine with my old modem-router.

I attempted to do do some troubleshooting refreshing my ip using the cmd with admin privileges but nothing worked as it said every time that there was no media connection. My desktop just randomly connects to the internet by itself after an hour of attempting to connect and disconnecting and once it gets connected it works perfectly fine until I restart my computer or turn it off and then the next day it'll be the same thing over again.

This has gotten extremely annoying, what can I do to fix this and further prevent it from happening? - I updated all my drivers and it's still the same. It'll just connect to the internet whenever it wants to.

Lenovo Ideapad Y510p - Too Much RAM Usage

Jul 22, 2013

So I've recently bought lenovo ideapad y510p (notebook) and when i am doing nothing or just browsing internet it's RAM usage is somewhere between 25% which is 4 gb. I think it's too much for only google chrome, skype, antivirus and OS. When I go to task manager it is saying that I use 500 mb of memory. So where is those 3-4 gb used ?

Network / Sharing :: Lenovo Laptop Running Windows 8 - Default Gateway Is Not Available

Mar 8, 2013

I'm having trouble keeping my lenovo laptop (running windows 8) connected to the internet. I have been able to connect successfully to multiple wireless networks and access the internet until I tried to connect to the new network.

Initially everything is OK - I can connect to the network and access the internet. However after a short period of time (anywhere from a few seconds to 20 minutes) the network connection will change to limited, without internet access. If I simply disconnect and reconnect to the network the internet will immediately be working again (at least for a few seconds/minutes).

Alternatively, if I run the troubleshooter, I always get the message that the default gateway is not available, which has been fixed by resetting the wi-fi adapter.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Laptop Won't Connect To WiFi

Jul 7, 2014

For some reason my windows 8 Hp will not connect to my home wifi network. Has had no problem connecting in the past but yesterday I unplugged my router to move it to another part of my house and ever since then it can't connect. My cell phone and other laptop connect to the internet no problem.

On my Hp it will show a list of wifi networks and my home network is on the list, however, when I try to connect to it and then troubleshoot the problem it says I can't connect to the network because it is hidden. I don't see how thats possible since the network name shows up on the list of nearby wifi networks.

What I've done but hasn't worked:
Reset my router and laptop multiple times.
Tried to manually connect to network.
Forgot the network on my laptop and tried to reconnect.

I don't understand how one day it can connect to the wifi fine and then I unplug it and all of a sudden it can't connect but my other devices can.

Network / Sharing :: New ASUS Laptop - Unable To Connect To Public WiFi

Jun 11, 2014

I purchased a new ASUS laptop a couple of days ago and have been trying to use the hotel wifi where I am staying to do the various updates and installs that new computers require. Unfortunately, while I can connect to my tethered cell phone, I cannot connect to the hotel.

I have another computer on hand that has no difficulties connecting to the hotel wifi, so I know the problem is in the new computer somewhere.

Network adapter is a Broadcom 802.11ac

Actions so far:

-Updated Windows 8.1 to current
-Attempted to reinstall drivers (uninstalling first) - Drivers are up to date and identical to the ones on manufacturer's site.

Browsers/Mail :: Windows 8.1 - All Browsers Except IE Suddenly Can't Connect To Network

Dec 24, 2013

I bought a new Windows 8.1 laptop about 2 weeks ago. So far, I like 8.1 and everything had been working OK. I've been using the laptop with my home wifi network, usually with the Firefox browser, for the whole 2 weeks. Yesterday, suddenly Firefox stopped being able to access the internet (error message: "Unable to connect"). Internet Explorer, Skype, and ping access the internet OK, but Firefox, Chrome, and Opera all fail with similar errors. (Needless to say, older devices I use on my network still work fine.)

Some possibly relevant details:
1) I'm running Windows Firewall. I've tried several times to "allow these apps through Windows Firewall" but it doesn't work. (I tried disabling the firewall from Control PanelSystem and SecurityWindows FirewallCustomize Settings, this still doesn't work!!)
2) The day before the problem started, I switched from Norton Internet Security to Windows Defender (this may be because the trial subscription expired -- before that it was very hard to control which was running).
3) Turning off Windows Defender (from Defender's Settings tab) didn't work.

I'm getting pretty desperate to choose my own browser and be able to control my laptop better.

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

Oct 19, 2013

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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.
