Question about ASUS M51Sn-c1 (90N-SFEA143288ECQL0Y) PC Notebook

Asus M-51 series Laptop

I've been experiencing internet connection problems with my laptop. I have a Netgear router. Whenever I move my laptop to a different room, i lose my internet connection. The only way for me to get it back is through restarting my laptop which can be very time consuming. I know the problem does not reside with my router--there are 2 others laptops being used (Dell's) by my roommates and they seem to have no problems with their internet connection. I'm thinking it's my modem??? Can anyone please help?!?!

    My Asus laptop has a switch to turn on the antennae so that I can access my wireless internet. Yours might have that too. If not, then I don't know...

A quick idea if you have not already tried it: to narrow down the problem, borrow one of your roommate's laptops and move it to where you lost your connection.

If their connection stays strong while yours drops out in the same place, the problem is more likely to be in your wireless adaptor.

    ...If it is not your adaptor, then Geekman's advice is the best place to start. Come back if you need help with any of the steps.

    If it IS your adaptor (or at least, let's say, the problem is within your laptop)....the 'proper' thing to do would be to send the laptop for service, or return it if it is under warranty. In your position I might try buying and installing USB network adaptor, and see if that solves the problem. They are not too costly, and cheaper/quicker than a service call. :)

    Good luck whatever you decide to do.

You need to check the signal strength in the other room and compare it with where you were getting a good signal.
Check the other Access Points/routers in your area, are they broadcasting on the same channel, if they are then change your access point/router to a different channel.
To improve radio reception you may need to move the access point/router to another location away from solid walls etc.
Your wireless card may be as good as your roomates, if possible borrow one of theirs and set it up (configure it) for your laptop and see it it works better.
Try the other options before you buy another wireless card.

Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.

I have a laptop OS win7. I hav internet over LAN port. My laptop has wifi. How can i share my internet with laptop wifi. i hav a mobile which has wifi. My question is how can i share my internet through...


It sounds to me like you only have a cable/adsl modem bringing in your internet connection. To share your internet with other wifi devices you will need to buy a Wireless router. Be aware you can buy adsl and cable routers depending on what your broadband provider has given you. Take these details into a computer shop who will advise you of the right type of router to buy. Dont buy cheap, go for something like a netgear router.

Wireless internet issue


be sure to check the big three.

ip address. go into command prompt and type "ipconfig/reset"

then "ipconfig/renew"

then retry.

thats the main one.

then check your windows firewall settings. see if your browser is blocked.

the last one could be the router has to be reset. this one happend to me on a daily bassis with this same laptop. you can unplug and plug it then redo the connections.
