Irulu 7" tablet keeps disconnecting from internet. It's connect for a minute or so and then just drops. Just received replacements for 2 in the mail yesterday. No connection problems with old ones.


How many 'bars' are showing on wi-fi signal strength indicator (presuming you are using wi-fi for internet access)? If the signal strength is low, you could be losing connections that way, or there might be interference on the wi-fi channel that the tablet is using. Try changing channels in your wi-fi setup and see if there is an improvement in the behavior.

We have a netgear neotv streaming player ntv300. We had it connected to the tv and then it had a message that it needed to be updated, so I checked it to be updated and it started updating for a whil


We had this problem too. It turned out our wi-fi signal was too weak. After we installed a wi-fi signal booster, the netgear update was completed with no further problems.

Netgear WN111v2 Adapter disconnected


Is the Netgear Wi-Fi Management software installed on the computer? If it is, you may have a conflict between Window's built in Wi-Fi Manager and the Netgear Wi-Fi Manager. If it isn't, you may need to install it.
Assuming it isn't, there's links to download the software at the Netgear Global Download Center.

I would default to the most current version, if you're running Windows XP, you may need to install the v2.1, however, I would assume the v3.1 would be backward compatible with XP.
Install the software and follow the prompts that will guide you through the installation/setup.
Now, if the software is already installed, you need to find the program and configure it through that avenue. If that does not fix the issue, you should uninstall the Netgear software, remove the Wi-Fi adapter and reboot the computer. After it completely boots back up, you should either plug in the Wi-Fi adapter, let Windows recognize it and install the drivers, (they should still be in the system even after you uninstalled the software). Once Windows successfully locates and installs the drivers, reboot the computer again, (no need to remove the adapter). Once Windows completely loads again, open Start, Control Panel, and System. On the resulting window, click the hardware tab at the top then click the "Hardware Manager" button in the middle about 1/3 down the window. Click the "+" next to "Network Adapters" and verify that your WN111v2 is indeed installed.
Assuming it is at this point, close out everything but the Control Panel and open "Network Connections". Find the wireless adapter there, (may be listed as "wireless connection2" depending on how many times it's been installed). Right click on the wireless device and select "Show Available Wireless Networks"

Resolution If you know there is a nearby Wi-Fi network, but you are unable to locate it on the Settings > Wi-Fi screen:
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • If you are using a personal Wi-Fi network, verify the Wi-Fi router is connected to power and turned on.
  • Wi-Fi networks configured as "closed" or "private" do not broadcast the network name to Wi-Fi devices.
    • Join a "closed" or "private" network by tapping Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and entering the Wi-Fi network name, security, and password.
After joining a Wi-Fi network, if you notice the signal strength is low or intermittent
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • Check for any sources of potential interference.
  • Remove any cases or attachments on your device that could interfere with a Wi-Fi signal.
If you are unable to access the Internet while connected
  • If you are using a commercial Wi-Fi network that requires a special login or subscription, see this article for more information.
  • If you are in a location with multiple Wi-Fi networks, verify that you are selecting the correct network.
  • Verify that the Wi-Fi network settings are correct:
    • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
    • Locate the Wi-Fi network you are currently using and tap ts1398_2.jpg
      blank.gif
  • You can configure network-specific settings, including IP address, DNS, and Search Domain settings.
  • Use "Forget this Network" to reset settings for this particular Wi-Fi network, including the password. This is also useful if you identify a network issue and want to prevent the device from automatically using this network in the future.
  • Use "Renew Lease" to acquire new IP address, DNS, and Search Domain information from the Wi-Fi network.
  • Note: If the Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you will need to add the MAC address to the access list for the Wi-Fi router. The MAC address for your device is listed as the Wi-Fi Address in Settings > General > About.
If you are still unable to join a Wi-Fi network, or are unable to access the Internet while connected, try the following
  • Restart the device
    • Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the power button to turn it back on.
  • Reset network settings by selecting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.
  • iPhone only: If you continue to experience issues, consider turning off Wi-Fi and using the cellular data connection instead of Wi-Fi.
Additional Information If using a Wi-Fi router at home, refer to your user manual/documentation to assist you with some of these suggestions.
  • Check the manufacturer's website for your Wi-Fi router for firmware or software updates.
  • Verify the Wi-Fi router can broadcast an 802.11b/g signal. If using a 802.11n Wi-Fi router, consult the manual/documentation for how to configure the Wi-Fi router for 802.11b/g compatibility.
  • If you are using multiple WEP keys on your Wi-Fi router, try configuring your Wi-Fi router to use only a single WEP key.
  • Try or resetting (or turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router. Note: If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
  • Disable wireless encryption or security on the Wi-Fi router to rule out encryption issues. If this resolves the issue, try using a different encryption or security protocol.

Netgear Wireless USB 2.0 adaptor cannot find a signal


Before doing that, make sure your wi-fi is turned on in your router. If the adapter is not seeing a signal, it may well be that your router is not broadcasting one. If you have another computer with wi-fi (like a notebook), or know someone who does, you can always use it (or theirs) to see if they can "see" the router via wi-fi, which will tell you if the problem is router or adapter.
