Question about Network & Wireless Adapters

1 Answer

Wireless network disconnection sometimes

When the network current is relatively large, especially when downloading large files(>100MB), my computer will inevitably disconnect from wireless network. Once disconnection, the system would say: No wireless network is available. Using the radar function, the computer can't probe any network(Based on this, I think the problem has nothing to do with the router). The only way to make the computer reconnect to the wireless network is restarting it.

The adpater is :
Realtek RTL8187B Wireless 802.11g 54Mbps USB2.0 Network Adapter

The computer is: Toshiba satellite A210 ST1616 (AMD athlon(tm) 64X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-55)

The Operation System is: Windows Vista TM Homw Premium

Anyone can tell me how to solve this problem? Thank you very much and happy new year.

Re: Wireless network disconnection sometimes

The Toshiba Satellite A210 has a built in wireless adapter - at least all of the ones I did a quick check on the specs. If yours has a built in wireless why are you using an adapter??? Presuming you have a good reason - have you gone in and disabled the built in wireless? They could be conflicting. Second I would use Network Magic software to setup your home network. I struggled many hours and could not get everything to work the way I wanted - all problems with home network fixed in minutes with Network Magic. I do not work for them or anything but I will tell you it is the best software money I have ever spent - and I have been around since 10MB was a dream hard drive.

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"

This is an older network card, and has been discontinued by DLink.

The network speed on this card is only 10MB

Compared to new network cards which are 1G this card is 100 times slower, or 10 times slower than older 100MB network cards.

Netgear ga311 will not run after install. indicates error 10

Have you removed the device via the Device Manager? And you have the newest driver available from NetGear?

Will your computer support a Gigabit adapter? Please do one more search --- your computer manufacturer --- to make sure your computer will support the new standard.

Do you have a 100 NIC you can try in your computer ...or is that what you are doing now?

Can i use someone elses internet connection to play xbox live if i have a wireless adapter for the xbox?

Yes, you can use any wireless connection, as long as you have access to it. However, you're talking a major degradation in signal vs. an actual ethernet cable. Cable is 100MB per second, wireless is 10 or 54 MB per sec. So yes, you could do that, but chances are you'll be disconnected randomly and you will probably be laggin.
