Question about Computers & Internet

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.

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.

Stuck on 90%

What are you trying to download? How large is the file?
Usually, between 90% and 99%, your computer is copying the (large?) file from a "temporary" folder to the folder that you designated to receive the download. For a "large" file and a slow computer, this "copying/deleting" can take some time.

Dynex DX-E102 PCI co/100Mb Network Adaptor provides really slow connection to my Dell Dimension 8200 PC. How can I speed it up?

speed is a function of line of sight distance so measure distance from wireless router for pc and then open that utililty on pc and see what relative speed is happening

if the signal is less than 3 bars, that is like a wireless tach

need at least 3 to 5 bars to get speed

also, your pc has a network adapter card no doubt might be that it's running a full tilt and needs an upgrade

let me know what you find

How to install an wirless adapter to mi desktop

Install a wireless network adapterIn areas that are served by a wireless network, you can connect to a computer network without using a cable, and surf the Internet or connect with other computers. To connect to a wireless network, your computer needs a wireless network adapter.
Many new computers-especially laptops-come with wireless adapters. Before using your computer, check to see if it already has a wireless network adapter.
If your computer doesn't have a wireless network adapter, you can install one.
Install a wireless USB network adapter. Most people prefer this type of adapter for any type of computer, because it's easy to install.
Install a wireless CardBus or CF network adapter. For portable computers, this type of adapter (also called a PCMCIA or PC Card) is easier to travel with than a USB adapter, because it is often smaller and fits securely in the PC Card slot on the side of the computer.
Install a wireless internal network adapter. If you have a desktop computer, you may prefer an internal adapter so that you can use the USB port to connect another accessory.
The type of adapter you install depends on your computer and your level of expertise.
How to determine if you already have a wireless network adapterMany portable computers manufactured after 2000 have wireless networking built in. However, because the antenna is hidden inside the computer, it's not easy to see.
To see which network adapters are currently installed in your computer
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

Click Network and Internet Connections.

Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.
69010-click-network-connections.gif 4.
Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter.

My belkin N router always disconnects on the internet. im sure its not a modem issue coz when i try to restart my router its connected again to the internet. my belkin router model is f5d8233-4v3....

Disconnections are generally relative to the Internet Provider and Speed. If the speed drops, the router can disconnect and reboots. Just make certain you always update all drivers and especially if you are in Windows, keep up with current updates. Check your device drivers and do update from there also.

I can't download xp service pack 2?

If Windows Update or Automatic Updates wont do it, do to and download the "network installation" version of XP SP2. Its one large file you can execute and run. Especially useful if you have multiple machines to update. Don't forget to download and update to XP SP3 once SP2 is done (and rebooted), as that's the current release.

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.
