Network / Sharing :: Wireless And Wired Network Limited After Sleep Mode?
Apr 13, 2014
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 just got my new computer today and first thing I did after setting it all up was try and connect to the internet. I plugged in my ethernet cable I would only get "Limited Access" to the router I've spent the last 10hours+ trying to find a solution but not a single has worked now what to do.
I've tried manually putting IP/DNS but nope no luck. I've uninstalled drivers and reinstalled drivers, restarted router tried various cmd commands but I really just dont know what to do anymore.
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 have problem wit limited wireless connectivity on my laptop (Samsung) but also on my iPhone 4 and my wife`s LG optimus 5 duo all at the same time. I changed yesterday my router speedport which performed wireless connectivity problems, with a same one- and the problem is actually the same.For every 30 minutes I have limited access on my laptop, iPhone 4 and LG 5. If i restart the router it is OK for a while, and then again the same story. Someone told me to switch off wireless option on both phones, which made connectivity normal on my Samsung laptop.
I repeated, I changed two routers and the problem persists.
After receiving a new laptop several months ago I began experiencing wi-fi disconnection issues at times the indicator on the system tray indicates limited connectivity, that's when I know that I am about to lose the connection I use windows 8.1 so when clicking on the wi-fi signal strength indicator in the system tray the network status dialogue slide's in from the right of the screen where I pre-empt the drop off by switching the wi-fi off & on again.
Computer is acer aspire e series with a Broadcom 802.11n Wireless adapter.
I am currently having serious issues connecting my windows 8 desktop to wireless internet. It runs fine when hardwired in and I have tried to reinstall drivers I have run programs ensuring me they are all up to date. The computer is a HP Pavilion m8430f. The router is a Verizon router and I believe the company that makes it is actiontec m142wr.
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 recently got a data plan for my HTC One S. The wireless hotspot that came with it will work on my family's iPods, iPad, and our family laptop, but not on my Toshiba laptop with Windows 8. I have tried my dad's iPhone's wireless hotspot, and it works on my laptop. When I try my hotspot, my laptop will connect to it, but it will only give me limited access, meaning that no pages on the internet will load. What may be wrong with my laptop or phone?
I turned it on and I could not connect to the PUBLIC WIFI network that I usually connect to when I'm out. Then I tried connecting to other networks and they all just had a little piece of garbage icon on the wireless symbol.
A yellow alert sign.
I restarted my computer about 10 times, went into my device manager, used windows troubleshooting, uninstalled and rolled back my Intel Centro Wireless(M)2230 wireless driver. Nothing will work. I can`t really take a screenshot of my ip config /all.
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 tried wired and wifi same exact speed, as if its capped?
I know a far bit about networks set my own up using servers and stuff in my basement and even tried a store bought router in case it was somehow my ddwrt router which it wasn't.
I have a new laptop ASUS ROG 17" G series its running 8.1
The source server has 6 147gb 15,000rpm sas drives in a raid dual gigabit network cables running esxi and ubuntu server with dual gigabit network cables, extremely fast speeds.
Everything is up to date on the laptop as far as I can tell I updated all drivers the gigabit network is using a Qualcomm Atheros driver from 7-16-2013 version 22.214.171.124 signed by MS its not a "genetic driver" or whatever sometimes shows up under device manager.
I have another normal desktop running 8.1 as well and it has no problems with network transfer speeds they exceed the drives capability to write to in the target drive from the server raid as does pretty much everything else I have, the server can serve files faster than anything can take them.
But the laptop seems to be capped at exactly 10MB/s according to teracopy (windows explorer transfer shows 11.8MB/s but I suspect its wrong its probably 10 thats what my router clams its going at not 11.8) and the graph is a steady line as if its capped like that.
I can transfer from an external usb 2.0 drive faster than this network? - I have tried wired and wifi the speed is the exact same.
my network connection on my laptop. I recently moved up to my college and am now on their network. However, I didn't have this problem at first. But recently if I go to my network connections, there is always a wired connection listed named "Unidentified Network" which has "Limited" access. The problem here is that I am not connected to any wired networks. There is no cable plugged into my computer so I don't understand how this is possible. The only thing I have installed recently is Virtualbox, just in case that could affect it.
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.
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 just bought a Lenovo Y500 a couple of days ago and it came with a pre-installed Windows 8 everything seems working fine but when it comes to Wifi it randomly disconnects a lot , sometimes shows limited access and most of the time the signal strength bars keep going up and down.
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 an issue with my computer after installing windows 8.1. I previously had windows 7 on my HP Pavilion dv7 and I bought the student version of windows 8 and downloaded/installed on my PC last night. I'm loving the new OS, except one thing. Every 15 or so minutes my internet says "limited access." No, it's not my connection - it works fine on other laptops/phones.
Once I restart the PC it reconnects, I tried to reinstall my drivers and it doesn't seem to work.
About two weeks ago I turned my laptop on and everything went blank, it couldn't read my drives, no data, nothing. After rebooting it a few times (with a lot of swearing and threatening to chuck it out of the window) eventually everything came back.
HOWEVER, since that night I have been unable to have a stable wireless connection. I have even reset my laptop to a factory setting. I then sent it away to get repaired and I'm still having the same issue. I've spent about two hours on the phone with my ISP but all of my other devices such as phone and iPad connect to the internet fine, although it does drop randomly every now and then.
I have a perfect connection when it is wired and works at a very good speed but if I try to connect to wifi it either says 'Unable to connect to this network' or 'limited' internet connection. My wifi also works to my ps3 and I'm able to stream videos without any annoying buffering.
The make is Lenovo and the model is Z580. It's about a year and a half old.
Is my wifi card (if there is one?!) broken? Can I just buy a USB port dongle that will connect to the internet? Or is there a magical cure?!
I recently updated from Windows 8 Pro to Windows 8.1 using Microsoft update. After the update was completed, I've started to have problems connecting to the internet using a wired connection. NOTHING else has changed since the update. If I reboot, it works for less than 30 minutes and then the connection switches to "limited connectivity" with no way to revert it back to the usual status. If I reboot the computer, it works fine again for a little bit. Oddly enough, if I connect the computer to the exact same router using wireless, it does not seem to be dropping the connection.
I'm using a Dell Studio XPS 8100 with the factory Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet adapter.
So far, I have: disabled, reenabled the device (PC seems to hang when I do this as well) reinstalled the drivers after removing them verified there is no proxy or weird DNS settings setup on the connection.
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.
My connection just went 'limited connection' but I can browse and download on the web with ease. Also, my metro apps like mail, and news, facebook does not update, and also it's live tiles. Windows store app says it can't connect to the internet.
I'm using an Nvidia nForce ethernet built in an Asrock n68c-s ucc motherboard.I tried to find updates for this nvidia nforce but managed to get only for windows 7. so installed it, and nothing happens.
