What causing that the Wi-Fi connecting at Windows8 faled every few minutes.???


Hi
The normal cause for WiFi failing regularly, dropping out, is due to distance from the WiFi signal source. This distance is not just feet and inches but also dependant upon the nature of objects between the signal source and the receiver. I recently found a case where the signal source had been put behind a large modern TV, and the WiFi signal in the next room was so slow and intermittent that the internet was unusable. Moving the router in front of the TV (in a position where it did not obstruct the picture!!!) cured the problem and they now have fast WiFi internet.

Wifi weak


Try using another device first, if that device can access your WiFi normally in all the locations you are used to then the device with the low signal is the issue. If the new device also has low signal then there could be a problem with the router, as they get older the transmitter in them gets weaker.


Before you replace that router do some troubleshooting, your wireless is a radio wave, radio waves are reflected by metal.
If your router is in a room on the back of a kitchen and you have bad signal in the kitchen the signal could be blocked by the cabinet that has your pots and pans "metal", or your fridge. another large metal object in your home is the air conditioning closet in your home, having the modem installed right next to that location will reflect most of the signal away from areas on the other side of it.
I had a friend that was complaining they had no internet except in the living room and kitchen the router was in the living room, he didn't think about the large mirrored wall reflecting all of his signal away from the rest of his house, his response was yes but they aren't glass mirrors and don't use silver forgetting that even the plastic square stick on mirrors that he had installed have a thin metallic film on the back to make it act like a glass mirror which also reflects radio waves and was creating a dead spot in the bedrooms.

MY LAPTOP DOES NOT CATCH ANY WIFI SIGNALS


methinks that you need to check these two items first

a. look for a physical switch along the sides of laptop(could be sure if the model number were here) and turn it on

b. open start/control panel and look for wireless icon click on that and ensure it's active

if that does not work then make sure you have one installed

start/control panel/system icon

opens panel go to device manager(should be upper left first option on list)

look for network adapters

see if wireless is listed

if it has a yellow ? mark then you need to right click to uninstall

go to top of that panel and scan for hardware changes

may need to restart computer after this segment is complete

Computer networking is attained either as wired cables or wireless observations. Recent innovation devices capture networking with signals also kwon as wifi. Observe the compartibilitie of the computer to ascertain that were wireless compartible. In which instance, wifi computers detect available signals from alernate devices either computers or peripheral devices. Prior to requesting wireless or wifi from computer devices, an area on the device allows to set functionality. Once the computers wireless features are establshied should detect available signals present on alternate devices. Each devices from which signal communcations are requested require adjsutments to capture as request resource exchage. For example, two computers that both are wireless compartible should set wireless features to capture available signals. In the situation, each computer detects the alternate as an icon representation displayed that would request details to complete communcations. For example, the wireless network structure where one computer creates password protect to least display on the alternate requires requesting password unblocked. Determining the entity that sets the password either as computer owner operator may allow password unblock or share the passcode to be type keyed to the alternate computer whenever requested.

How do i increase wi-fi signal strength


There are only a few ways to increase signal strength ..move closer to the source (the router) , get a bigger antenna or boost the signal...you can boost the signal with foil in the shape of a parabola around the router antenna or make one out of a vegatable strainer that will plug into the laptop(this one works best )especially for picking up your neighbors WIFI

My toshiba satellite x205-s9349 cannot connect to internet


Despite wireless connections being susceptible to EMI, bluetooth signals do not tend cause the kind of interference that would prevent you from picking up a wifi signal. You say the wifi switch is on, but the bulb is red. (It is supposed to be red, that indicates its powered on). The things to check are to see if you are detecting the wireless signal, are you inputting the proper protocols for any known established wireless Security (WEP/WPA). Are you using a wired connection to get on the internet or another computer/location?

Wifi (laptop)


built in wifi cards are very limited in range, get an external pc card
then you can get an antenna to connect to that if needed.
I use both and find the external card is best in reception.
you can connect an antenna to the internal card but you will have to leave the access panel open or make a hole in it.

M675 Notebook Wireless Problem


yeppers..those are simply receivers, and sometimes, after a period of time, and vibration, and shock, they just lose some of their ability to tune into a signal. I've seen it in net cafes and inside wireless nodes too.

got backup for your Gateway?
