Network / Sharing :: Wireless Connection Not Working Post Virtual Switch?
Aug 6, 2014
I installed hyper v on my machine which is running Windows 8.1. Then I created a Virtual Switch on my wireless network. After that, it was not working in the VM but the wireless connection in the host was working fine. After that, when I connected to a different wireless network, it did not work. I deleted the bridge, uninstalled hyper v, but it is still not working. I installed hyper v again, but it is still not working. The wireless connection connects to the wireless network after putting the password, but does not give network connectivity to the internet.
I need to get the wireless connection to work again.
when i connect my hp probook 4520s to my sony vpcyb4ajg with Ethernet cable on my Hp wireless disconnects and can not be connected until i disconnect lan cable. but on my sony i have both wired and wireless connections simultaneously
hp:Windows 8 x64 realteck Ethernet and atheros wireless
I have recently upgraded to Windows 8.1. After the update what i have noticed is i lost wifi connectivity in the virtual machine which running Windows 2008 R2 server. I have Windows 8.1 and VMware workstation 8.0. Windows 2008 R2 is running in the Virtual machine and i was able to connect to wifi from the virtual machine and share files netween Windows 8 and Windows 2008 R2. but now i can't connect anymore. Even when i enable WLAN service on Windows 2008 R2, i don't see the wifi adapter in network settings.
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.
I just installed a new wireless ac adapter and I do get a 1.3Gbps connection to my router. However when I test this connection by transferring some large files I get about 350Mbps for sending and 600 Mbps for receiving. When I transfer the same files with a 1Gbps wired connection I get about 970Mbps for sending (I think that includes some caching) and 760 Mbps for receiving.
Are there some options in Windows 8.1 Pro that can be set to get better wireless performance?
i use a usb Wireless adapter to acess the internet, and my signal is always good. The connection works fine too. But in some sites (more specifically in a flash video player that i have to use many times) and when i try to download uptades via Windows Uptade the connection just drops, and in most of times i have to disconnect the USB adapter and plug again to re-connect.
I don't use any antivirus, any 3rd party firewalls, nothing. I skirted the updates problem downloading them from the MS site, instead of Windows Uptade, and the uptades have installed fine, but itill pisses me off. The disconnect problem happens sometimes when i try to download something via Torrent (using Bittorrent), but in these days it happens most of times in the Flash player. This don't happen in youtube, curiously.
So I bought this new Samsung Ativ book4, for some reason at random times the wireless goes to a "limited connection" and I have to reboot the computer to get a full connection. Do you think this is hardware or driver?
I heard Windows 8 is not very friendly with wireless drivers and Windows 8.1 is suppose to have better support for wireless drivers.
I have an HP m6-k015dx and it has an intel centrino 2230 wifi card in it. I also have an old, netgear wna 1100 usb wireless adapter. The wireless usb adapter I have gets extremely better wifi connection that the internal adapter and the signal strength on the networks won't fluctuate. Are there any settings I can change on the intel adapter, or can I buy a new internal adapter to replace the intel to get better reception?
It's a Sony Vaio touchscreen laptop i5 that came with Windows 8, upgraded to 8.1 about a year ago. Yesterday, the buttons in the available wireless connections stopped working. When you click on an available connection, they no longer provide the drop down that offers connect or disconnect.
Everything is up to date...connecting to LAN works fine.
I have a VPN connection from home to work and now that I have moved to Windows 8 I can't get it to work. I have tried pretty much everything I can think of and find on forums and YouTube videos, eg turning off Norton (virus and firewall), opening ports on my router and configuring all manner of settings for the VPN connection.
I have my old Win7 laptop and I can still instantly connect to the VPN using that. So, I have copied all of the settings from there, but still no result.
I constantly get the 'Error 800' message (Unable to establish the VPN connection).
One video showed the steps of setting it up and there were no mysteries to it. It was pretty much all default settings.
I am facing a strange problem with my internet connection on Windows 8.
I have a netgear WNR612 wifi router and two laptops connected to it running Windows 7 on first and Windows 8 on second.
The connection in Windows 8 laptop shows sufficient signal strength but when I try to access internet, it does only shows connecting. I have changed browsers, wifi router, adsl router, released and reconnected IP address, forgot and re-added wifi network, reset wifi router to factory almost everything.
The strange part is that as soon as the other Windows 7 laptop is disconnected from the network, Windows 8 internet start working fine. I have tested this many times and there is no doubt in this behavior.
I dont know whether the problem is in any update installed on Windows 8 the older Dell Wireless 1703 wifi card or some virus in the other Windows 7 laptop.
My ipconfig output:
Ethernet adapter Bluetooth Network Connection:
Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network) Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : F4-B7-E2-59-1E-42
Note that I have assigned preferred IP addresses to both laptops based on MAC.
so basically from one day to another my wireless connection has stopped working...i can only connect to my wireless by using an ethernet cable..I've tried rebooting my whole computer to factory settings...and it hasnt worked..
After the new windows 8.1 update (which inclided the home screen power off button) a net problem came out. In my wifi indication, it sais "limited", but when i enter the web, i can search in the internet without probs. When i go to net. and sharing center, i cant see any network. On my other laptop (win7) it shows the connection normally.
My wireless connection is fine, but my LAN isn't. This is a university subscription so there is a proxy server. I asked the school if they have activated my subscription and they said yes. I tried changing cables but it still would not connect. I know the proxy server settings are correct because there is also a wireless connection in school which uses the same settings.
I ran network diagnostics and it said that the connection between the cable and the internet is not working. When I open Chrome, it says that the DNS lookup failed. I tried resetting my TCP/IP, setting my preferred DNS address to 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 but it still would not work.
I check my ethernet driver settings in Device Manager and it is fine and updated to the latest version.
I had Hyper-V and Ubuntu running on Windows 8 no problem. I've since done a fresh install to 8.1, and I can no longer create an External Virtual Switch. The button for "Create Virtual Switch" is grayed out when I select "External". I can create Internal and Private switches, but not External. There's no error or message so I'm having difficulty troubleshooting. All of the tutorials I've seen don't talk about any configuration I would need to do before creating an external switch. I have the default Windows 8.1 firewall and antivirus stuff.
Update: I tried creating the Virtual Switch in PowerShell with the following commands
Code: PS C:WINDOWSsystem32> Get-NetAdapterName InterfaceDescription ifIndex Status MacAddress LinkSpeed Ethernet Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller 3 Up B8-97-5A-13-7C-E6 1 Gbps
I'm not really sure why it couldn't find my physical network adapter, since it shows up with the Get-NetAdapter command.
I am running Windows 8.1 Pro with Hyper-V enabled. When I had Windows 8 I could install a Virtual switch with out any problems, since upgrading I can not install a Virtual Switch with External or Internal settings.
Not sure if this is relevant or not but when I look at the Ethernet properties never "Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch" or "Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Protocol" are ticked. I have tried ticking them but get the error message "Could not add the requested feature. The error is: The data is invalid". I have checked that I am using the latest and correct driver for the card.
I have strange network problem these days. I have a desktop PC and installed Windows 8.1. And I have a LAN. The gateway IP address is 192.168.2.1.
The network works fine when I start the PC. I can access Internet with IE, I can access the config pages of my gateway and I can SSH my local File server. It's a synology ds212j. I assigned static IP address 192.168.2.18 to it and name it as "home_ds". I add dns entry in file "hosts".
But there will be very strange problems if the PC keeps running about 2/3 days. It seems I can't connect to other computers from my PC. No IE, no SSH, no ftp.... But ping still work. These is no network device listed in my network folder. But I still can access the mapped network drives.
For example, I can ping www.google.com, I can ping 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.2.18 and "home_ds".

But when I try to telnet and ssh, all failed.
I tried: telnet www.google.com 80 telnet 192.168.2.1 80 telnet 192.168.2.18 22 all failed.
I tied putty, msn, outlook,... all failed. But my wife's PC works normally at the same time.
In the network folder, there should be a list of all my network devices, including my wife's PC and my File server. But it's empty if this problem happens. However I can add them mannually and I can access the network drives.
And I can connect to my PC from my wife's PC with remote desktop.
If I logout and login again, the network will recover except 1 new problem. That is I can't access the network drives of my File Server with computer name "home_ds", but IP address works. And I can ping it with computer name.

A restart will solve both the above 2 problems. But I don't want to restart my PC so frequently.
I tried to solve this problem by update windows and drivers but failed.
So i downloaded LogMeIn Hamachi and accidentally put it onto private network, so now everytime the program is working i cannot connect to the internet outside of the hamachi connections. Now i can switch my Wi-fi connection to to public/private by clicking networks, right clicing the one i want to change and clicking turn sharing on/off. But hamachi is not in this list, it is in the network and sharing network centre, were i cannot find how to switch it to public.
When i attempt to share any of my drives (physical or virtual) on my Win 8.1 machine I receive a message, "This drive cannot be shared". This machine is a member of a Homegroup and I have read access to/from this machine.
As I am attempting to share a drive I am using advanced share and have included homegroup users in the list I want to share to.
I have now managed to share the drives on the Win 8 machine, however when i look at Homegroup in Windows explorer I can see the shared drives of the Win 7 machines but when I click on them it says I don't have permission despite having put Homeusers in the permissions list of both the sharing tab and permissions tab of Shared Drive/properties.
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?
I have just upgraded my laptop(Toshiba Satellite P875). From Windows 8 to 8.1 and now the airplane mode button does not switch the mode on and off??? I can go inside the settings and do it. But the button on the keyboard panel does nothing?
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.
Since a few weeks, I have a problem with my laptop running Windows 8.1 (Toshiba Satellite P50-A-12PBE). Sometimes, after bringing Windows back from sleep mode, I seem to have no connection to the internet. Windows says the connection is 'limited', wether I'm connected with a wire or wireless. Resetting the router doesn't solve anything, but rebooting my pc does. Since both the wired and wireless network are always simultaneously affected, I think this hasn't anything to do with drivers (I already have the latest versions by the way). I have made screenshots with ipconfig-results when I'm connected with a wire.
I am having trouble with ICS on win 8. On my old laptop (win xp) I used to be able to share my 3Connect dongle internet to connect to Xbox live. I recently got a new laptop with win 8 and whenever I share this internet connection I can never connect on my Xbox (the network to internet part fails). When everything is connected up and shared the Ethernet says 'Unidentified Network' which i believe is the cause of the problem. I've read i may require a driver update but i cannot seem to find one.
My Laptop: Toshiba Satellite C855-29N
what to do, maybe i am not setting up the connection sharing properly?
