Last time i too had the same problem where i had the Wifi connection lasting only for 5-6 minutes. and lately i discovered that my anti-virus component that i used previously (AVG)has blocked some of the settings which was expired and i got Avast and installed it.. thats when i found that my wifi connection started working fine. may be the same case for you as the problem seems same.. check it out. Regards

Windows WiFi Fix,

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:


Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

My wifi keeps disconnecting and have to restart phone to reconnect, but only lasts for maybe an hour


Samsung Galaxy S 4G Smartphone: WiFi disconnects (have to restart phone to reconnect, does not scan for WiFi connections):

Hello. It could be that your "Auto Network Switch" setting is on..

What Auto Network Switch does: when the WiFi gets too low the phone automatically switches to cellular, and when cellular connection gets too low, the phone will switch to WiFi

All Samsung Galaxy's are not alike for it's menu settings.. but you can try:

for S4 and up:
Settings>hold down on WiFi settings for a second then let go > un-check box at top for "Smart Network Switch"

for other Samsung Smartphones see the attached video below:


If your device is having issues trying to scan for your router.. try turning off your router for 2 minutes, then turn it back on.. make sure you wait a few minutes for your router to properly boot back up before you try scanning for your WiFi network again

Why wont my huawei y530 connect to any wifi


Hi
First, make sure your WiFi is turned by going to settings> Wireless & Networks" If it is on then you will see a list of networks within range, each of which you can tap on to connect to it.
To connect to a WiFi network, you may need 3 pieces of information:
A username
A password
An encryption key
Once you have successfully linked to a WiFi access point then your phone will remember the settings until told to forget them.
A lot of the time you may only need the encryption key, and if the tablet detects a WiFi access point then if you tap on that in wireless settings then it will either connect automatically or ask you for some sort of code - the encryption key. If this is not entered correctly then it will return an authentication problem/error. In order to connect you have to have this code.
Cheers

How to connect the wifi to a acer aspire 5733z - 4851 laptop


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem. If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.

  • 2 Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer. Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu. Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
  • 3 Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to. Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
  • 4 Restart the computer. The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.

    My laptop (acer aspire 4930) wifi is not able to detect wireless networks. It has been working fine for 1.5 years but something has happened today that it is not able to detect the wireless connections.


    Double check that the Wi-Fi didn't accidentally get turned off. There should be a button on your computer that turns it on and off or a fn key usually fn+f2. Try that first if that doesn't solve the issue try reinstalling your driver which can be found at the following site.

    I received a kindle for Christmas. It has been wonderful until last night when it stopped connecting to the Dell or whispernet wi-fi. What to do?


    Something has changed in your wifi settings first check wifi is turned on (press menu On the right hand side next to the battery it will say off is wifi is turned off) the first option in the menu is turn on wifi.
    if wifi is on click home -> menue and go to settings scroll down to wifi see if your wireless network is there if it is not but other networks are there it is a problem with your house network not the kindle

    if your house network is there with a message next to it saying connect then click connect if it says forget then forget it and connect again.

    If the device fails to connect you should go into settings push menu and then restart if still no luck go to settings and click reset to factory defaults and try again through wifi settings if this does not work their is a fault with your device and you have to talk to amazon

    amazon will charge you to replace the device if you tell them anything like you dropped it so as far as you know it was working when you went to bed you woke up the next day and it didn't work ;)

    let me know if this helps

    You need to remove all your existing preferred wireless connection from your Network and sharing Center by clicking the manage wireless networks and removing each one by right-clicking each and select remove.

    In xp, open view available networks and click the change advanced settings and remove all existing preferred networks then try to connect again to the wireless network you're trying to connect.

    Wont connect ti internet


    Same device as mine. and im on home hub aswell. Uninstall the drivers. Restart windows. Reinstall the drivers. Hopefully this should make a differance. Also when reinstalling. make sure the device is not plugged in until you finish installing drivers. And maybe put it into another usb when you are ready to try again. this is something good to try on older systems. or OS's.

    Connect to wireless


    I believe the X-Box does NOT have Wifi built in? (sic)Surprisingly, the Xbox 360 doesn't have wireless networking built in. If you don?t fancy using the wired Ethernet method, you can invest in a wireless networking adapter. Microsoft has its own adapter specifically designed for the Xbox 360, but third-party Wifi-certified devices will work just as well.(sic) From the below site. http://72.14.253.104/search?q=cache:d7LlkY7Zo1sJ:www.vnunet.com/personal-computer-world/hardware/2147007/microsoft-xbox-360+xbox+360+wifi+is+built+in%3F&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=2 So that may be ya problem?
