Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The wireless connectivity just shuts off for no reason while I'm using the computer (and always shuts off and won't restart itself if the computer is allowed to go to sleep), and you then have to go through the toubleshooting routine to get it restored each time. There is no pattern to it. It just spontaneously disconnects. We have added an $89 external wireless receiver because of the computer's extremely poor wireless range, and the wireless connectivity still shuts off periodically for no reason (and I can tell it's not the router because the other laptop I have sitting beside this one always works perfectly and cost $1100 less than this one). The external wireless card does improve the speed by about 20x. The other issue is that the battery runs out in just over an hour, whether you are using the computer or not. Even with the screen and the cover shut, the battery runs down in a couple of hours.

Can not connect to Verizon MiFi2200 wireless network


Yes the verizon tech informed you right that the ip address will be acquired by your wireless adapter automatically. However there are lots of reason that your adapter not able to connect wireless.

1. Make sure no firewall or antivirus is blocking your wireless connection to connect wirelessly.
2. Make sure you are entering the right password for the wireless network if your network is secured.
3. Make sure the wireless adapter driver installed properly.
4. You can also try to restart the DHCP services through which your computer will try to get the ip address. I am giving you the steps how to restart the DHCP service once again.
- Click on start
- Under start search or under run type in services.msc
- Search for DHCP client and right click on that and you can click on restart. It will restart your services.
5. Make sure other computer are able to connect wirelessly to identify whether there is a problem with the router or a wireless adapter.
6. Make sure the wireless channel on the router is correct sometime due to wireless channel your computer not connect.

I hope this will help to resolve your concern. Still if you face any problem let me know.

Thanks & Regards
Jazz

My laptop shuts down when i connect my new iPhone 3G


does your computer have a webcam? if it does, the computer is restarting itself because it identifies two conflicting cameras - one from your computer, the other from your iphone. what you can do is either 1)update your camera drive, 2)update your computer drive or 3)use a computer that does not have a webcam connected to it. hope this helped!

Router will not connect to internet


You will need to assign a different ip address to the modem - Iam assuming that both the router & modem are using the same ipaddress 192.168.1.1? If that is the case, then assign 192.168.1.2 tothe modem.

PC shuts down when accessing wireless network


Check in Device Manager to see if there is a problem with the Wireless Network Adapter. If you see a Yellow! or a RedX, then right-click on the network adapter see what the status of it is. It has a troubleshooting section. The only part of your wireless adapter that could possibly shut down the computer would be the driver.

UNABLE TO OPEN ANY PAGE


You may want to check the wireless security settings ie. (WEP / WPA /WPA2...etc) on the router, certain settings don't always work well with the macintosh, try changing them and that should help your problem.

Adapter no longer detecting ANY connections.


Hi cpjango,

Most routers especially the smaller ones do not have anything that resembles good ventilation.If you touch the router and its anything more than luke warn then its pretty clear that your router is overheating and unless you take a few steps could be at risk of being damaged beyond repair. My suggestion is to make sure its standing in a position where minimal router surface touches anything else.Also keep it away from your monitor, pc, desktop and anything else that produces heat. If it keeps randomly shutting off i would even recommend a small fan or a replacement.
that said I am assuming its not your service provider.

please tell me how this turns out.

First put in the cd that came with the wireless USB adapter. Close the auto setup page(we will use windows wireless network manager which works better with windows firewall . Plug in the wireless adapter and the laptop will automatically install the driver. If for some strange reason it asks you to install new found hardware, follow the promts and install manually and select cd and the directory the WG1111 drivers are located. Press ok and wait for install. Restart the computer.

After restart the computer will come up with a caption New Wireless Networks found. Double click on the wireless Icon in the bottom left hand corner. It will open a seperate screen with all wireless connections avaliable to you. Might be 1 or more networks, depending on whether your neighbours have wireless networks. Anyway find your specific wireless network could be for example NetGear, Dlink, or my home network. Click on connect your wireless connection. Another smaller screen will appear with Key in your password twice( WEP key or WPA key)
Key in your key or password twice and apply or ok. It will connect and close screen.
Restart computer!
After restart the computer will pick up your connection automatically and your ready to go on line. If you move your mouse down to the icon with wireless network in bottom left hand corner it will show your wireless connection in a caption stating the connection name and how strogn signal is. Connection complete.
NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE A WIRELESS MODEM OR WIRELESS HUB CONNECTED TO YOU MODEM TO USE THE WIRELESS WG1111. THANKS!

Computer must be restarted to reach internet.


hi,

following could be the reasons:-

1. Check if you have a separate button for enabling wireless network. If so in some case you may have to enable the wireless network by switching on the wireless connection manually on getting back from stand by or hibernate mode.

2. Try to refresh the wirless network connection

3. Check the status of the wireless network icon in the task bar.

Hope this solution was helpful
