Hi, I'm trying to connect to a wireless network. When I connect to the network it says I'm not connected but also says


You should first reset your router then if that doesn't work you should run a Virus scan. If either of those don't work then you may be dealing with a WiFi card failure.

Tip

If your wireless connection drops every 20-30 mins


I suggest that you use the NIC own application software to connect to your internet gateway (router) I have helped many people who have had this type of problem.

I first had problems with a INPROCOMM WLAN with a SKY Sagem Router it would drop out or go to 1MB connection and sometimes loose the 54g signal all together. After a restart sometimes the laptop would not find the profile and no connection was made.

As soon as I disabled the WZCSVC Windows Service (Wireless Zero Configuration that provides automatic configuration for the 802.11 adapters) as it is designed to search for new routers every 20-30 mins this had to be my problem they appeared to contradict each other.

As soon as I disabled this service all my problems stopped, incidently if you have a Desktop with an Ethernet LAN 100MB connection if this service running is it useless and also takes some processor power even when it is not needed so just use the DISABLE_WZCSVC tweak anyway.

Best of Luck !!

On the setup for your wireless network through your router, you have to allow access for other devices. Your internet provider should also be able to walk you through this process as they did for me when I had the exact same problem.

Wireless signal keeps dropping/dissapearing


Check my tip
Using Router and Wlan adapter from different brand (Dynex + Belkin) is sometime calling for trouble: you must configure both to be sure to be on same standard (or change Both).
I'm using Netgear + Belkin and tune is not easy
On router config check radio power, reduce the used standard (B/G A/N) to the only one used by Belkin adapter (N).
Be sure you removed Windows zero wireless configuration (= use windows to manage my connection= OFF)
edit your belking wireless networking utility to automatic reconnect:

try downgrading to G standard from router side
Check your network connection plugging your laptop to router via lan cable.and check network params (DHCP DNS etc.).
Then check wlan connection near router, if you experience wlan drops only when far from router, find any possible interferences source (Microwave, cordless, remote) remove it or be ware you cannot have wlan when your wave is working.

Test connection, see if you pulled an IP address
Go to the Windows desktop
Select Start then Run
In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
At the command prompt type: ipconfig
4. What does it read as the IP address?
* If it reads 192.168. something dot something then you are pulling
an IP address and are connected to the network. The problem is
software related, check your firewall, and wireless card configuration.
Also check any WPA or WEP encryption keys. Check with the respective
manufactures.
* If it reads 0.0.0.0 for the IP address you are not connected to the network.
* Check your connection configuration and the adaptor.
* Check with the respective manufactures.
STEP TWO/ Basic troubleshooting continued....Testing the adaptor
1. Go to Windows desktop
2. Select Start then Run
3. In the text box type: cmd (WIN98/SE type command)
A DOS window will open.
4. At the prompt type: ping 127.0.0.1 (reserved IP address for all adaptors)
5. Check the line that reads "packets sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0
A. Zero is good, the adaptor is working. Again check the connection
configuration,and the adaptor configuration.
It may be a power issue especially with older or less expensive computers
or wireless cards.
* Check the antenna location, are you inside or outside, look for interference.
* Check with the respective manufactures.
B. If it reads all 4 packets lost, the adaptor is not functioning.
* Check and update the drivers, Contact the respective manufactures.
* If it shows any number of packets lost (you are dropping packets)
it is an adaptor or signal strength issue (generally form the laptop side,
not being able to reach back) especially with older or less expensive
computers or wireless cards.
* Update the drivers
* Check antenna location, or distance from the signal
* Contact the respective manufactures.

Have you tried connecting the laptop in a different wireless network? Try changing the channel in your router and you may also upgrade the firmware of your router.

Wireless Network Dropping Out- NetGear WPN824 V.2 & Atheros AR5006EXS Wireless Network Adapter


Fergus,

Steps to troubleshoot are as follows.

1. check the physical connections. Go to a broadband testing site to see if you are connecting correctly b/c i am assuming you are wanting to connect to the internet. if not see next step. A common problem with internet connections is the timeout setttings on netgear you should set it to 0 for indefinite.

2. if your problem is related to just the connection between your pc and your router then you should just plug a lan cable in first to see if you can connect to the router without dropouts. This will help you to determine if the problem is with the router.

3. If it is the router then you need to double check your router configurations. Common problems are firewall rules, port forwarding settings etc etc.

4. if it is not the router then double check that the pc and the network card is working properly. If it is then make sure the the wireless adapter support the protocl eg. wep, wpa, wpatsk etc..make sure they are the same and that you should be setting the network key.

5. one final check is you need to turn off some of the rangemax functionality on the router b/c your wireless adaptor probably doesnt support it. try unsecure connections for a while to see if it works then start adding functionality to determine which one is the culprit.

I hope this help.

Unable to open internet page


let you router allocate the ip addresses manually by enabling DHCP and restart the router,and remove the usb adapter from the usb port and reconnect it, but when you right click on the taskbar on the little pc icons for your connection click enable WZC windows wireless Zero configuration as this will dissable the software you got with the usb adapter and hopefully make the connection more stable, but ensure you have a strong signal.
