How To Set Up Router - Ethernet Adapter Not Working
Jun 29, 2014
I'm trying to set up a router, but the setup keeps telling me that my Ethernet adapter is not working. The Ethernet adapter troubleshooting tells me that the computer is configured correctly but the DNS server is not responding. (During this time the Internet is working as I have the cable plugged in to the computer.) I have the adapter set to automatically find the DNS server. I have run ipconfig/flushdns and ipconfig /registerdns to no avail. Do I need to get another network adapter? My laptop is probably at least 6 years old, and this problem started after I upgraded to 8 from XP - I had the router set up just fine on the old version.
I upgraded to windows 8 and have had no problem when I booted up my compaq presario. I was not online went to the control panel to troubleshoot my internet connection and was told that my Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration and that "Default gateway" is not available. I am hardwired into my AT&T router (the same router that is serving three other laptops in my home without any problems). I downloaded the v184.108.40.206 driver but I'm not sure if it installed as I am still having to manually reset my ethernet adaptor via the control panel each time I restart the computer.
I have an Acer Aspire E1-572 laptop. Went to connect it to my router via an Ethernet cable but failed to have connection,It works okay on wifi but not on the Ethernet the square box don't show next to the clock.I have looked in device manager for any yellow exlamation marks and none to be seen.
just noticed my Vaio ethernet port isn't working. it says the adaptor is working normally, but when I plug in an ethernet cable is says the cable is not plugged in. I tried it with two different cables that work elsewhere.
I wonder if the laptop ethernet card is faulty? Wireless is working fine.
I only ever use it to hard connect the router during setup, so it could have been out of order even before my Win7 to 8.1 upgrade.
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'm having problems with my Asus NV56VM laptop (windows 8). Whenever I try to use an ethernet cable to access internet I either get a SSL-error, the website doesn't load at all or it loads VERY slowly and not the whole website (it says that I have internet acces and that it's not limited). Wireless works fine though.
I've also tested playing some games (ex Call of duty) and it works fine for like five minutes and then I get an error message saying something about packages didn't receive correctly. So I'm guessing it have to do with not all information is transferred when I use ethernet.
According to the Device Manager I use "Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)" and the drivers is up to date.
Things I've tried:
Using a different ethernet cable. Testing it on a different network (at my friends house) Reinstalling drivers (both from Asus website and from Qualcomm's). Disable wireless Empty cache/cookies Restarting computer/router/modem Turning off firewall Searching for virus (didn't find any) Ipconfig /release /renew Tested it on different browsers (I also affects games though) Formatting my laptop SSL and TSL is enable
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 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 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.
So, i have an old microsoft mn510 wifi adapter, which i use to connect to the internet. I tried to use it on win xp/7/8, all are 32 bit versions. Driver for that wifi adapter officially supports only xp, but it works with all win versions. Problem is, when i use internet, my pc sometimes just freezes, and i have to reset it. There is no errors in event viewer, no bsod, that would give me more info what is wrong. So, could the freezes be caused by that wifi adapter?
All the times when freezes happened, both hdd and internet had a job, as i was downloading some files, but i have no errors, that would prove, that my hdd or wifi is bad. And i had no freezes with wifi adapter disconnected and without internet, so im guessing its wifi adapters fault.
Installed windows 8 on blank HD. Version was enterprise. Went through installation process, then discover that the wireless adaptor (laptop, built in) wasn't being recognized FULL stop by windows. I tried a few things. In the device manager, the wireless adaptor is not shown. However, after updating the device list, it shows one unknown device.
I looked through the preloaded drivers for wireless devices, but all of them were for USB ethernet/wireless adaptors, which as I recall from my previous installation of windows was not the type of driver that the device was using. I've also gone through the automates troubleshooting, etc, but nowhere is it even acknowledged that the device is even there. Now, my initial thinking is that it is indeed something to do with the drivers, but I'm not sure if I can find the needed ones. I'll upload more detailed information about my setup if it would be useful.
I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y500 laptop running Windows 8.1. i7, 8BG ram, 2GB Nvidia card--all that stuff. It ran perfectly for nearly a year. But now, the local area network is broken. I haven't done anything different or changed anything that would affect it, as far as I know. But now that it's summer, I have lots of free time but I can not lan any games with people, which sucks. So I googled and googled, tried the netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt (or whatever it is), tried ipconfig resets and stuff, and none of that works. The wireless lan adapter Media State is still "Media disconnected."
I took this screenshot AFTER I did OneKey Recovery (which is a factory reset). It set my computer back to the original settings: Windows 8, full of bloatware, etc. I did this reset last night, updated it, updated it to Windows 8.1, updated Windows 8.1, and finally, before I went to bed, tested the LAN. It worked, I was able to connect to my Dad's Minecraft world. So I set my laptop to start re-downloading my games (reset deleted all my data), and when I opened it up this morning to play Minecraft with my family, the LAN was not working again. I couldn't connect (or even find) the lan games.
Only just a few days ago did this problem begin. During any session, my wireless adapter will become totally unresponsive and then all of my media connections will become inactive and disconnected. I try to run an ipconfig and it just lists everything as disconnected.
I am thinking that this isn't a driver problem because the wireless internet works up until this happens. I use a d-link usb-wireless adapter but that shouldn't be the problem because even my ethernet becomes disconnected when this issue occurs.
I can't access my Netgear WNDR3800 Router's configuration access, and I need to change some settings.I went to 192.168.1.1, and tried everything, including "admin" and "password" for username and password, respectively.
I have a Netgear WN111 wireless adapter on my PC. Since installing Windows 8.1 it doesn't connect automatically to the router. The PC says there are no connections available, so I can't even click on the router to try to connect. If I pull the adapter out and push it back into the USB port it connects automatically. Also, when I switch the PC off, the LED on the adapter continues to flash, so I have to pull it out and plug it in again to stop that. I've tried troubleshooting, compatibility check, reinstalling the driver and uninstalling the driver and getting Windows to install one itself.
I just got a computer that comes with Windows 8 and I'm trying to get on the internet with the wireless adapter I was using on the old computer but I keep getting an error message. I am able to install it from the disc but when I go to run the program it says "Can't load ProcNICs.dll" This is the adapter I am using (version 4). The most recent driver the website lists for this adapter is for Vista. Is there a way to get this to work?
mSATA to 7 pin adapter for SSD or HDD: mSATA to 7pin SATA Adapter
reviews on Amazon.com: Amazon.com: Micro SATA Cables - mSATA to 7pin SATA Adapter: Electronics
I ordered a Dell XPS 8500 Special Edition desktop with a 64bit Windows 7 Ultimate OS installed on a 500GB Samsung 840 SSD and a 3TB HDD for videos/music/documents/etc. I want to install Windows 8 so that it will be a dual boot system along with Windows 7. Each OS will be on a separate SSD. I have an empty mSATA port. So, I've ordered a mSATA to 7 pin adapter like above to connect a 256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD to and to install Windows 8 on it. I understand that this mSATA connector should make the 256GB SSD bootable.
The desktop comes with an OEM Windows 8 installation disk. I have a Windows 8 Pro upgrade disk. What would happen if I had to install Windows 8 a second time on the same SSD on the same desktop? I've read that the 8 Pro upgrade deletes the original OEM serial number. How would I install Win 8 again if I would need to for some reason? Would I have to purchase another edition of Win 8?
With the 3TB HDD, I would like to partition it so that both Win 7 and Win 8 can use it, but on separate partitions. How would I do this? Would it be like any partition? GTP?
This is a 6 month Old Gateway Laptop, Windows 8 preinstalled. Broadcom Network Adapter.
I have a Buffalo WZR-300GB Router (2.4mHz, with 802.1/ 11g/b/n) all working. There are 4 wired and 3 wireless computers on the network. Wife's Gateway (Windows 8) is the ONLY one with [wireless]dropped connections. No MOVE has been made with Her Laptop or the Router.
This is the troubleshooting I've have done so far.
Uninstalled/reinstalled network adapters.Reset the adapters. Scanned Hardware changes (before/after) in the Device ManagerTurned off Power Management.Disabled the Lan (wired) connection-adapter.Removed (Forget this Connection) 2 other wireless connections from outside the home.Wireless Adapters are set to "Maximum Performance" under (edit power plan).Moved to Laptop (actually the 1st thing I did) to 2 different locations with same results, dropped connection.Under settings the Topology is all Checked, Except 2 I have never seen before. Multi-Layer Protocol, and Kernel 64 something. Anyway, when I insert a check mark next to both. I'm Prompted "Do you really want to disable this connections?" I have done both (checked/unchecked) nothing changes.Under Device Manager: Restore all Hidden Adapters, About Five More adapter showed up I had never seen before. So then I Scanned for Hardware Changes. No effect!
I keep loosing the Internet, every few days, and I go to my adapter settings, disable, then enable, and it comes back on. My adapter ia an Asus PCE-N15 Wireless LAN PCI-E card. I have a Lenovo H415 desktop running Windows 7.
So, I woke up this morning and realized the the wifi adapter on my ThinkPad 430 is disabled. It's been working perfectly fine for a couple years, but as of this AM it didn't work. My smart phone can connect to the wifi access point just fine. What I can check to get it working again?
Problem: Laptop won't connect at full speed UNLESS I uninstall driver and reinstall. Then it will connect at 20Mbps until I close the lid or restart the computer (I think, not sure on when it slows back down). It slows down to what looks to be 3-4Mbps every single time. It shows no error message and no reason as to why it slows down that I can tell. Device manager shows no problems. Desktop is also ran on wireless through a different adapter and never loses speed, so I'm fairly certain its an adapter or windows problem with the laptop. I've tried original driver and updated to most recent driver and still does this. I've turned off automatic update of driver in Windows 8.1 also.
Windows 8.1 on Acer 5920G (WiFi adapter and more devices can't run)
After installation Windows 8.1 on my (ok old) laptop all seems normal but after reboot no WiFi, no Internet, no working WiFi adapter (the device can't start).
In device manager, wifi card (try 2 different intel cards Intel WiFi Link 4965AGN and Centrino Advanced-N 6250 AGN) can't start to work.
In the device manager 2-3 more unknown devices (yellow mark, no drivers or can't start work) but without Internet i can't try to fix this problems (2 pci devices and this one intel communication device).
I try all the known ways to add drivers (setup, manual....no internet) or to make it work but nothing, the devices don't works, can't start works (error code 10, i think).
So what can i do? NO windows 8.1 on my laptop? Now back to Windows 8.
In my Netgear router logs, its showing '[DoS attack: STORM] attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [10.0.0.2], Monday, Jan 06,2014 00:50:55' many times over and over about every 20 seconds, which is coming from my computer, I am almost 100% positive I got no malware/viruses on my computer.
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.
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.
I have a netgeat WNDR4500, I also have readyshare cloud installed on my home pc (HP pavilion elite x64 Win 8 pro) I also have it on my work pc (windows 7 pro Lenovo). I cannot seem to access my shared folder when logging in to ready share, it shows my device, but never pulls the shared folder. Is there something in the port forwarding setting that I may need to change?
I am using windows 8 laptop. When i tried to log in to Beetel Router admin page(192.168.1.1), i was not able to log in. I used "admin" as username and " password" as the password. But the page is not getting loaded. Its asking for the username and password again. My friend is able to log in to the same page with the same credentials in his windows 7 laptop. So i guess its the problem of OS.
I have a friend who has an HP Pavilion G6 running a 64-bit edition of Windows 8.
He brought the laptop to me telling me he had issues connecting to wifi networks. I did the normal check to see if the PC was detecting the Wifi Adapter itself by going to Device Manager > Network Adapters ..only for me to get there and find out there were no Wifi network adapters, only a "Realtek Ethernet Controller". I checked HP's website for the laptop's model's wifi driver, downloaded and installed it and got a prompt that the driver wasn't installed correctly.
The F12 key that's supposed to turn the wifi adpater on didn't do anything. I decided to do a system restore to the last time my friend told me it was working and yet nothing.
I'm guessing its a hardware related issue and I might have to open up the network adapter compartment of the laptop and place the adapter properly. I'm so confused right now.
