Apple :: Wireless Mouse - Occasionally Loses Its Wireless Connection To The Computer
Jul 24, 2009
I think something similar has been posted here before. In essence, I find that when I use my VX Revolution (or is it MX? Whichever one is the mobile version), the mouse occasionally loses its wireless connection to the computer, and so I have to click multiple times to get it to register.
This is annoying enough for me to consider getting a wired mouse, but I want to know if I get something like an MX518 if I'm still going to run into the disconnect/lag issue.
In other words, is it a wireless issue or a Logitech/PC/Mac conflict issue? I experienced both with and without the Logitech software installed. The software is currently installed.
My laptop constantly loses connection to my wireless router and I'm forced to use the windows troubleshooting tool to hook up again. This can happen over and over again multiple times over the course of an hour or so. I'm using an Xfinity wireless router and have several other devices hooked up to it wirelessly that do not drop connection. These include iPhones, iPod touch, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Mac notebook. And no, they are not all accessing the wireless at the same time. I've reinstalled/updated the drivers, adjusted my power saving settings, restored the system to its factory settings -- basically everything on the troubleshooting list.
recommend me a good wireless / bluetooth mouse? Something not too expensive, portable, small size. I really need a mouse right now... Can't play Unreal Tournament 2004 on TrackPad. Once again, WIRELESS Mouse. I know I know they are not the best thing for gaming...
Just got my shiny new XPS13 trying to connect to my network and I think I may have dropped a clanger in the order.
My Router is a from SKY, Netgear DG934G g and b only, I read that the 1515 card is backward compatible to support these. I am using WPA, my lappy sees the network but the router won't see the lappy any idea?
My new Sony VAIO SR 390 arrived yesterday. When I turn on the computer, restart, awake from sleep, etc, I have to manually disconnect and reconnect to my wireless network. If I don't, I have the little yellow triangle in the tray saying "unidentified network" and the internet doesn't work.
I have turned the wireless switch on and off, disabled and enabled the connection, updated the driver, and changed the power settings in the device manager. All of this has not helped.
Other than that, I have had no problems and I'm very happy with the computer. I haven't noticed the battery drain issue either.
I have been having this problem for a long time now and a friend pointed me here to beg for some advice. My internet connection works fine for general browsing purposes and i have a good quality of signal strength where i usually use it.
The problem is, every time i run a game such as Football Manager or World of Warcraft my internet connection will be lost. This can happen as soon as 5 minuites after starting the game or can take up to an hour, but without fail it will happen. After this disconnection my wireless adaptor is still shown as being turned on however i am unable to detect any networks in range. The problem is not solved by turning the adaptor on and off and i am forced to restart the system.
I'm not sure what the cause of the problem might be, CPU and memory usage looks normal. I was wondering if perhaps overheating could cause issues like this? My laptop is generally quite warm but with the graphics card coming into play as well... I tested the internet connection whilst connected to world of warcraft but keeping the game minimised and i was not disconnected. I also installed Speedfan to monitor my core temperature and it measures at 55C idle, but after one minuite of switching to and playing the game this rose to around 75C. Not sure if i should include anything else sorry if i overloaded this a little but not very good with computers so wasn't sure what info i should include.
its a Broadcom device. The driver version 220.127.116.11
I have a HP G60-519WM laptop. The wireless connection is off. It tells me to "Use the switch on the front side of the computer, or function keys if available to enable wireless capability on this computer. I cannot find that switch or button anywhere. I'm not sure how it was turned off as it is not my laptop. One day it worked the next day it didn't.
I recently bought a new HP Pavilion 15 PC , and the first weeks the wireless connection was working until a couple of days ago when it just shows an X on the wireless connection show that I'm not connected . I checked the University wifi which was working well for everyone else .
Just bought hp D110a wireless (and USB) printer. Cannot achieve wireless connection. Install seeks router. I thought lap top Dell Inspirion had internal router -- appearantly not. How can I tell (Windows 7)
I just purchased an Hp Envy m6 notebook PC m6-n168ca to replace my last Envy with a corrupt OS. I have a Microsoft wireless mobile mouse 4000 to use with it and I plugged in the usb connector and it installed automatically and successfully apparently. Unfortunately, the mouse is not being recognized on the screen. It works on my other laptops so i know it's not the mouse. This is my first touch screen laptop though so I am wondering if it has something to do with that? The trackpad mouse function works fine but I need to be able to use the mouse and the touch pad. Is this possible? Is there something I have to toggle on or off? How to change the mouse click settings and stuff.
I own a Z series Z540. After multiple Vista reinstalls and driver reinstalls, the wireless connection always drops. It would maintain connection for about 5 minutes, then it drops again. The wireless light stays on though.
I tried going on XP and ssee how that works out. Same problem, except that it drops when I MOVE it. And when it drops, the wireless light turns off, and when I move it back into a certain position again, the wireless light goes back on, and the wireless is back.
However, when I am on vista, the connection just drops for no reason, even without touching it, every 5 minutes. The light does stay on, though.
I have a HP9743CL sitting next to my old 2529Cl and both connect to my home wireless network. Two weeks ago the 9743CL worked fine but now it drops the connection after 4 minutes. I turned off the firewall on the laptop thinking maybe it was blocking something. That didn't help.
I turned off the firewall on the router Westell327W and that didn't help. in the mean time my 2529Cl just keeps plugging along. staying connected. Is there a setting I accidentally changed.
When it dies and I try to have internet explorer fix the problem if comes back with a statement saying my firewall is blocking port 80. Well, now that everything is turned off what is the cause.
I was running zonealarm on the 9743CL and the stock firewall on the Westell327W.
we purchased a few of these units and I would like to have them set so that the wired connection is the only connection showing over wireless but on these units, the laptops are grabbing two IP addresses, one for wired and one for wireless. Is this possible for this model of laptop?
I have the HP G72 Notebook PC and it operates on the windows 7 home premium 64-bit operating system. I was once able to get on my internet without any issues. I changed my carrier to uverse and was still able to connect for a week or two and then one day my computer says that no internet connection is found. Other computers connect just fine except mine's. I made sure that the wireless key was engaged and it was.
I then tried to restore my computer to an earlier date in hopes that whatever happened would be reversed. The system wouldn't allow it and wouldn't complete the request. Now When trouble shooting i also get the following message. "an error occurred while loading the troubleshooter: An unexpected error has occurred. the troubleshooting wizard can't continue." The only thing that I remember doing before this problem occurred was changing from google internet surfing to explore. It work for a short time thereafter and then stopped.
I purchased an HP ENVY dv6 Notebook from Costco today, running Windows 8, an Atheros AR9485 adapter, and connecting to a Belkin Surf N300 Wireless N Router - Model# F7D6301 v3.
My problem is, in the past 6-7 hours of usage, I've lost connection 3 separate times. The first two times was fairly brief, lasting only a few minutes. I closed out the Internet Explorer Application, and upon reopening it and attempting to connect again, worked fine. The last occurrence, however, lasted 15-20 minutes and finally resulted in me just hard wiring it in.
I'm brand new to HP computers, and Windows 8 all together, so I'm not sure where to start first. I've searched around the web, and on the forums here, but haven't found a fix.
I use the wireless router daily (hard wired) for my Xbox 360, and rarely, if ever, has issues connecting.
I have a new hp 15 r007tx laptop with windows 8.1 pro x64. Now I am facing a problem related to wifi. I've installed the required drivers but it keeps disconneting frequently. (sometimes its working just fine).
My XPS just arrived yesterday, and i am having lots of trouble with the wireless connection. I have tried being close and far from my wireless box and it doesnt fix the problem. My connection is great when its working, but it disconnects for about 20 seconds very often. Its extremely anoying, and I dont want to have to return this laptop as I really like it. Is there a location where I can update my notebook to hopefully resolve the problem?
I have a new HP Pavilion 23 Desktop, running windows 8.1. I want to make a recovery set of DVD's, and the instructions tell me to "TURN OFF THE WIRELESS CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET". How do I do this without turning off the wireless router used by other PC's in my house ?
For a while now the wireless connection on my laptop has been very unstable. I had used it for about six months without experiencing problems, but a month or two ago I started getting very frustated with it.
The wireless can be turned on just fine and has no trouble finding available networks. No problem here. But when I try to connect to one it rarely works, and the few times were it does connect, the internet is incredibly slow. I would say it works flawlessly and fast about 10% of the time. The rest of the time it's like I just explained; it either won't connect or is too slow.
I don't know what suddenly caused this, since it worked perfectly when I bought it. Updating the wireless card drivers didn't work.
I'm really trying to like my new Acer 1410. Everything was working great until I tried to connect thru the wifi. Turned out the connection was really weak. This is in my house where all my other laptops have had no problem connecting.
So I try for a couple of hours trying every setting possible on my router and on my laptop settings. Finally, I open up the bottom of my laptop and find out the black wire that goes to the Intel Wireless card isn't even connected! In fact the metal connector itself is missing entirely
So me not knowing much about electronics, I cut off a 2 inch wire (with connector) from my old laptop's wireless card and taped it to the new laptop's open black wire. Plug it in and now the signal is better, but it still sucks. Any advice anyone? I really would rather fix it myself if I can. Would it work better if I solder the two wires together? Or is the Intel 5100 a POS and nothing is going to help it?
My wireless printer has worked fine for over a year and not it is not. The blue light on the wireless button just keeps blinking. I have already directly connected my printer and router and it still will not work. My configuration page says my SSID is not set. How do i set my SSID on my HP Deskjet 3050A - J611g?
I have read about many issues regarding Wifi connection (connection drops often without any reason, poor signal strength, too long time to establich connection...). My problem could sound similar, but it's rather different:
Although my wireless connection appears like Enabled in Win8, I cannot switch it on / connect. It appears like Not Connected (Wifi = Off). In fact, I cannot see any wifi network when the list of available networks used to be.
- I checked BIOS, and it's set as Enabled. - I updated BIOS to the last version. - I updated wireless wireless drivers to the last version - I modified the wireless configuration as it's especified in the long forum thread for Wifi issues
But nothing has been successfull. For some strange reason, I cannot switch the wifi device on.
I just received three new T440p laptops using Win7 Pro. Unfortunately, the wireless link to keeps disconnecting ever so frequently on all the machines. I have updated the Wireless drivers, reinstalled the BIOS and even optimised power options to enhance the wireless perfomance but none have worked.
