Acer :: Switch 10 With Windows 8.1 - Bluetooth Connection Works Only IF PC Is Connected To WiFi Network
Oct 28, 2014
I manage to pair my 2-in-1 pc Acer Switch 10 with an externat Bluetooth (bt) device only when the tablet is connected to my home wifi network. As soon as I disconnect from the wifi network, the pairing with the bt device is disabled. If I try to pair the bt device when wifi connection is off, the pairing succeeds just for a few seconds (1 or 2) and then it disconnects.
The support assistance of the bt device, since it actually manages to pair with the pc in such wifi wird conditions, suggested that it probably can be a problem due to the chip of the pc that probably manages both the wifi and the bt connections and is not able to manage them separately.
and updating the bt driver downloaded from the ACER Drivers and Manuals webpage. However, the installation procedure were interrupted as the installed bt driver appears to be "later".
So, I have B590 Lenovo Notebook with Windows 8 and the Wi-Fi doesn't work well.
When I try connect at home, my Wi-fi works fine. Not problem. But when I try another one - e.g. In School or somewhere in the city, the others wi-fis don't work. Windows 8 tell me something like "It's not possible to connect" .....
I have problem with wifi connection. Wifi works perfect with other devices: phones, tablets, laptops. When I connect to wifi with L440, wifi works 5-30 min. and then crash. L440 kills wifi network. All devices can't connect to wifi until I restart router.
I have read about this problem, but in task manager I can't find "discovery.exe" or LenovoEMC Storage Connector in Contral Panel.
I have a HP Pavilion dv6t-6000 CTO Quad Edition laptop and currently the WLAN network card does not support dual band connection via WiFi. I wish to upgrade the WLAN card so that it can connect to the Dual band WiFi at my house.
Any whitelist of WLAN card that I can use to upgrade my laptop? Is there a list of supported WLAN adapters?
My lenovo g570 laptop does not found network adapter for wifi and blue tooth it did not recognize the hardware part may be. because i install software for that so may time. few days back i used wifi as well as bluetooth in my lapi but for last two or three month i just used lan for internet connection and in between i changed my os which is win 7 ultimate to win 7 proff. I don't know what is the reason for that.
I just bought a new hp zbook 15 that comes with FreeDos and I bought Win7 Home Premium SP1. I installed the windows and it works until i try to connect to the internet. It says "no connection available" and the icon has a red x on the bottom right. When I checked the "device manager", I saw that i don't have either the network controller nor the ethernet controller. I have looked for then it the drivers section but i cant find them...
Since getting my Acer switch 10 i have suffered limited connectivity issues on the device, this then states there are no access points available and then will not resolve itself until i restart the device. This happens on different routers and ISP's and i have updated the drivers from Acer support site with no avail. the issues happens about one a week to fortnightly and i have tried several reinstalls but nothing changes.
So, I've had this problem from some time now. When I put my switch 10 to sleep, and then re-open it, the keyboard is not working anymore, like it has problem recharging drivers. Same issue happens sometime when I use it in tablet mode and then reconnect the dock to it, I've a very hard time trying to make the keyboard and touchpad working again. The fact is that the usb port on the dock doesn't seem to have any problem at all, only the touchpad and the keyboad. I can't figure out if that's a software or an hardware problem.
I have a Studio 1558 laptop, originally with Windows 7 which I upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro. I have just installed a larger HD (1TB) to replace the 500GB which I thought might have been on its way out as it occasionally started clicking. I have also taken the opportunity for a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro. But the Device Manager does not show any Bluetooth devices even though the Bluetooth mouse works! However I cannot find any links in Devices & Printers to allow me to change the mouse wheel action or the Synaptics touch pad action.
Going back to the 500GB HD gives me all this functionality so the hardware is all ok. The BIOS settings still have Bluetooth enabled. I have updated Windows updates, and used Slimdrivers to update all the drivers.
R7-572, about 10 months old with zero wifi problems otherwise. Win 8.1
I have a Plugable UD-3900 USB 3.0 docking station [URL] ...
I have not figured out a set pattern yet, but I mostly lose wifi when I plug in the docking station. It will recognize networks but not be able to connect to them. Yesterday was the first time I tried connecting these two together and I was able to somehow solve the issue temporarily. How I don't know. I am not able to reproduce tonight.
Just now I tried plugging it in and I was able to retain wifi for about 5 minutes.
When I run the Internet Connections troubleshooter it says "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration"...
I have a new HP Envy TS 17 Notebook PC, Windows 8 operating system.

I keep losing WiFi connection. And yesterday I had to do a restore as WiFi completely disappeared from my computer. It just was no longer there. If happens again do I hv to restore again? What is the reason with losing/dropping WiFi connection.
I have an HP Envy 17-j053ea Notebook running Windows 8.1 64bit. It has an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 network adapter. I am guessing from other posts that this adapter can't handle Windows 8.1 which is why I am continuously losing my wifi connection (other devices not running Windows 8.1 are fine). Is there an update or another driver? installing it and making it work on my notebook?
I am having problems with my Wifi on my HP Pavilion Notebook 15 (Product number: G2H02PA#ACJ)I Have Windows 8.1 and as well as Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter.My Wifi Connection Is Showing LIMITED Connectivity. I have already complained about my problem on HP Phone Support. But i did not get any solution for my problem. Technician has re-installed wifi driver and Bios but did not get any solution. Customer Support has sent me some links for driver update but did not got any solution again.I've tried installing various versions of Ralink WLAN Adapter Drivers!. Still no success!I am writing this post from my other laptop as my wifi router is working properly on other devices!
I have problem a with my Switch 10. The internet connection drops frequently. It is followed by the signal strength icon showing 'Limited'. I then turn off WI-FI and turn back on and it does not recognize any networks at all. I then go into network settings, run the troubleshooter and it does its stuff, re-setting the network adapter, and then informs me that it could not find an issue. After resetting the adapter it works fine again.I have tried uninstalling and installing latest drivers but the problem persists. The problem lies within the adapter itself or the driver.
My adapter shows as being REALTEK and i read on here of similar problems with the Broadcom adapter, which makes me think that the driver is causing the problem. Someone suggested that the Bluetooth was causing a conflict, so I removed bluetooth and it made no difference. (I have re-installed bluetooth. All drivers are latest ones.My switch is not a month old yet and this happens a couple of times a day. and am close to returning the product. I like it, but cannot put up with such an important issue as the internet randomly dropping.
My laptop was working correctly and then I booted up one day, the bios worked fine but then the screen went black. I connected an external monitor to the lap-top and the laptop display works fine. As soon as I remove the external monitor, again, I get a black screen on my lap-top.
I have run the full system option of the Dell diagnostics and have 2 errors, battery and dvd flash rom. I have ordered a new battery. I have also noticed that my lap-top does appear to get quite hot.
I keep having issues waking up from sleep with my T440s. It WILL NOT connect to wifi and the wireless adapter under windows adapter settings disappears. Only thing that fixes this is a reboot. I have removed "allow windows to turn this device off" under wireless settings.
I just got my new VN7-591G which I enjoy a lot, but the Wireless connection gets lost, if I am not very close to my router. First Win tells me it's still connected but I cannot access any website and after a while it loses the AP. The notebook has a Atheros Qca61x4 Wireless adapter, I tried many different driver version, non of which worked.
I've seen quite a few issues with Windows 8.1 and WIFI on this forum, but this one is a bit different.
I've got a brand new Aspire E 15 that came with windows 8.1. When connected to the network by cable everything works fine. When I try to connect via wifi strange things start happening.
I can see my network. I try to connect and it asks me for the security key. Then it connects. About 1 minute later it says it can't find the network. Other devices that were happily working on that networks wifi suddenly loose connectivity as well (hard wired devices don't seem to be affected). I end up having to reboot the router so wifi works for the other devices.
I made sure the Atheros AR956 adapter has the latest driver - v10.0.0.285 and all windows and acer updates are installed.
I have Windows 7 (64-bit) ultimate edition. I have downloaded and installed WLAN drivers from HP site. But the adapter still fails to detect any avaialbe wifi connection. It still shows the red-cross on Networks icon in tray. My wifi is WPA2
While installing drivers, for WLAN, the installer closes itself in the mid of installation. I have already installed
Intel chipset installation Utility and driver (2014-01-03 , Version188.8.131.527, 5.48M) and Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Driver (2014-01-08 , Version2012.6.1218.2013, 32.02M) Download link: [URL] .....
The WLAN adapter is in working condition as I was able to connect wifi in Ubuntu linux...
I tried with older version, the driver gets installed but with connection, no luck....
I've been using my netbook at my local library for 3 years. Acouple weeks ago, all of a sudden it lost contact with the library's wifi connection. The librarian tried everything he knew, no results. I later borrowed a laptop from the library, looked up fixes, tried them, but they didn't work.
Here's what happened: Got a padlock with a window saying failed to connect to a Windows service. The dependency service/group failed to start. A troubleshoot resulted in a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it, saying network proxy settings can't be detected, though it also says detected.
Trying the fix on Acer support--checking to see if TCP/IP is working right--resulted in an error message, TCP/IP improperly installed. Trying rewriting the registry keys didn't work. Ditto the remove/reinstall network driver adapter. Finally it said if this doesn't work, there's likely a hardware problem.
