Keep getting disonnected from internet when using laptop power cord

My laptop instanteously disconnects from the internet if I plug in the laptop's power cord. If I remove the cord and run on the battery the internet connection returns...sometimes on its own...sometimes by running "repair". This happened one other time and lasted for about one day and then the problem went away on its own. In fact the first time I hadn't been able to determine what was causing the problem, i.e. power cord vs battery. This time the problem isn't going away and I have clearly found the problem. I have verified that this is happening in outlets throughout the home so it is not the outlet that is causing the problem.

Error:111 No internet connection error followed the exact instruction multiple times and same error. Help please and thank you in advance.


John:
Most likely you will need to disconnect the power cord from your modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order to clear the MAC address of the computer/device that was previously connected to it.


After the modem has been unplugged from power for 15 to 20 minutes, plug it back in and it should then recognize the router as its new MAC address to assign an IP address.


This will probably restore your access to the Internet.

Thanks for using FixYa

Internet dose not work


This model Dell laptop used a PCMCia card as a network adapter, which may or may not be installed in the slots on the side of the laptop. If one is installed you may need the dongle (an adapter that plugs into the card and ends in a standard network jack)

an example of several types can be found at http://tekgems.com/Products/3comdongle.htm

My internet keeps disconnecting


It sounds like the wire from your house to the isp switch is faulty you should probably call them down to fix. Or it could just be the modem are you using the same modem for both computers? If so then that's probably the problem.

I have bought a wireless broadband router thinking It would enable me to use my laptop in wireless mode what do I need?


To use a laptop computer wirelessly a few things are required.1) make sure that the router/Access Point (AP) has the proper connections (i.e. power, data access such as ADSL or or other broadband internet connection, and good placement of the AP so that the signal goes to the locations that you want to get connected wirelessly. 2) Make sure that you have a power option where you want to connect wirelessly (either a good strong battery or a place to plug in the power cord). 3) Make sure that all appropreate security concerns are addressed (such as proper signal encoding to guard against someone using your connection to do something illegal, or that the signal does not overlap with some one else's to where there is interferance for you or them).

For specific help with making the connections or the specific software settings please post more details (computer operating system, router make and model, and connection details). Good luck and welcome to the unwired.

Keep getting message that cable has been disconnected..


First off, you need to update Windows.Go to where your modem is, unplug the ethernet cable from the router and connect direct to your computer, and run Windows update. You may have to reboot several times before all the updates have been implemented.

Then, the flag message you have been getting "cable disconnected" indicates to me that the flag is coming from the internal network card of your computer, not the wireless client in the computer. You need to make sure the wireless client is setup properly to see the router.

Do you know if security has been setup on the router? If so, we will need to walk down that road to get it set up on your laptop.

But first things first. Get the computer updated, and reply back answers tot he above, as well as what Operating System,s you are running.

Good Signal,Good Mbps, Slow Internet Connection?


1. Try to use a different wireless adapter on all available USB ports, if the problem remains then
2. turn off your PC unplug the power cord from the power socket, short the two legs of the power cable then leave it for 5min, then plug it into the power socket again and turn on the PC.

if this didnt work then you have a hardware problem with the USB ports.

let me know how it works out.

usually the problem like this was cause by unupdated firmware of either you wireless card or router. check the manufacturer of both devices and check the website if there is any updated firmware of both. you will also find instructions on how to upgrade the firmware on the manufacturer website.
