There seems to be a lot of people with the same Issue. Windows Vista keeps changing from Acess: Local and Internet to Acess: Local only. is there a way to keep it Local and Internet? Also it seems that my connection has slowed down considerably. I used to be able to play streaming video off of You Tube now it starts and stops contantly. I changed from an Intel 82566DC-2 Gigabit Network Connection card to a Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB Adapter Model WUSB54GC. When I hooked up the Linksys USB Model it was again fast and worked flawlessly for a day now it is back to the Start and Stop instead of the smooth streaming can anyone tell me why and how to fix this issue. thanks in advance

First thing is that if all the updates for windows 10 are installed, then windows defender from Microsoft is installed and running. It has been given high grades in detection and protection tests lately and it is all you need. If you have another program like bit defender running with it, they fight or can hog resources. When you say that it starts to slow down, what are you doing with it? If you are mostly using it for internet browsing then the issue is likely based in cache. There are a lot of things that can be changed in the settings that reduce the usage of resources also and that is a consideration.
You must setup manually your acces point. First go to control panel, under network and internet you'll find a task, view network status and tasks click on it and in next page go to change adapter settings, find local area connection and right click on it and go to properties, in next window highlight internet protocol tcp/ip then click on properties in next window click on use the folowing ip adress and write in ip adress box an ip from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.253 at your choice in subnet mask box just leave 255.255.255.0 (this apear when you click in these box). Now connect your acces point to the computer via network cable. Then open your internet browser and type in adress box http://192.168.1.254 and hit enter, a pop up will apear and ask for user name and password, write admin in both boxes user and password and hit enter, after that you will be able to manually configure your acces point and setup a name and password for your wireless network, change your user and password for acces your device. Good luck!
MAC address need not be changed to connect to internet, unless the cable modem you have is configured in such a way that it only connects to a particular MAC address.
The solution is to change the settings in the cable modem or the router you have.
Please specify the following details
1. if you have windows click on start and click on run(for xp) and type cmd and hit enter
2. type ipconfig and hit enter
3. Find out what is the IP address specified there it should be in the format - 192.x.x.x
4. Note down the address against default gateway
Do the same thing for both the computer and then let us know so that we can narrow down the issue and suggest a better solution
I had a very similar problem with my Netgear, I assume your Netgear is 802.11n standard router and your wifi card is probably integrated which means it only supports b and g standard. The only solution is either to buy a 802.11n compatible wifi card or to kick the speed of the rounter down to b & g compatible more.
check if ur able to gonline with the cable connection. checked if the wireless key entered is correct
try to update the software
go to start-computer-right click-properties-devicemanager-network adapter- rightclick on the broadcom -update driver from the net with the cable connection and this will probably resolve the issue
In this case you have to get your router reset to default settings and then set it up once again and also setting upa new wireless network with a different channel because the issue you're facing is because of channel selection.
Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share. Right-click the drive, and then click Sharing and Security.
To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer. To change the name of your folder on the network, type a new name for your folder in the Share name text box. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer. To allow other users to change the files in your shared folder, select the Allow other users to change my files check box.
