Dell Inspiron N7110 :: Set Up Ad-hoc Connection To Share Internet Between Laptops?
Apr 23, 2013
Im trying to set up an ad-hoc connection to share internet between my laptop and another laptop but it will not let me turn my internet connection sharing on, when i go into adapter settings my wireless network connection has a red 'X' next to it and if I run the diagnostics its tells me 'problem with wireless adapter or access point' and I cannot connect to any wireless connections either, i have an internal Dell Wireless 1702 802.11 b/g/n on windows 7 home premium edition, All drivers are up to date and I am using a Del N7110.
I cant get a connection on my laptop. It says that the connection is turned off, but I have no way of turning it back on! I have tried installing the drivers on the Dell website by entering my specific security tag, but they say they aren't compatible. I have even gone as far as to restore it to factory settings and nothing still.
Since changing my password on my router, I can no longer get online with my Dell Inspiron 1520. All other computers and phones work on the wireless. Also, my internet provider saw that I no longer have the Microsoft TCP/IP Version 4 which I need to work with their internet.
I got my hard drive replaced yeterday but now I have no internet connection, it is a dell inspiron n411z. I have the drivers and utilities cd and have tried installing all of the drivers on it, some have checkmarks and some dont so i am confused. What do I do if i installed them in the wrong order? My internet is still not working and there is a yellow box with an exclamation point by the following items: ethernet controller, network controller, pci simple communications controller, sm bus controller, universal serial bus controller, and unknown device. I had this problem last time the hard drive was replaced and somehow fixed it using this CD but I cant remember how.
Up until this past Saturday (6/14/14) everything was working fine with my HP Envy dv4. Now I cannot connect to the internet anywhere. Having read the posts I have already looked up what seems to be some the necessary information to solve the problem: Product #C3Q25UA#ABA; Bios F.24, Ralink Tecnology w/driver version 22.214.171.124.
The laptop is a Acer 5520-5912 running Vista Home Edition.
I am trying to figure out some issues with my father's new laptop when connecting to the internet. There was a problem with finding wireless networks which was attributed to a problem with the wireless network card driver. I deleted the driver, figuring I would just connect to the wired network only to find that the laptop will not see my lan connection.
I tested the lan connection in my laptop and it worked great.
When I go into the network connections it shows 1 broadband connection that is disconnected through something called a WAN Miniport (PPPOE). I have no idea what this Miniport is, and when I try to connect, it does not connect.
The second connection shown is the Local Area Connection (LAN), and it says the network cable is unplugged.
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 126.96.36.199
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 ?
As above I keep losing internet connection on HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC and often have to turn off to get it back. I have had the laptop for over a year now and have had this problem from day one. Often there are no connections to be seen at all. I can be on a site fine one minuete then the next it just freezes. Sometimes clicking dissconnect then reconnect will resolve the issue. But most of the time I have to switch off, leave it off for a few mins then reboot. This does not always work so I have to do it again.
As above, I have had this issue from day one. When I got it home there were no connections to be seen. I took it streight back to PC World they switched it on and connections were there. When I got home, switched on others were there but not my own. After switching off and on again mine was there. After that it was okay for a week or so then I started getting the problems I have now. My son sitting about three feet away from me on his lap top has no problems at all so I know it is the laptop and not my router. Also my wifes, my son's and my phone are on the internet through the router when this goes off. Now and then it will be okay for a couple of days but most of the time it goes off several times a day.
I have just purchased an Acer Aspire E5-511, it repeatedly loses internet connection (wifi) despite still showing as being connected. I have read that numerous other people have experienced this problem but I have not found a solution that works. I have tried updating the driver and changing the battery power settings etc. I have spent ages transferring all my files accross so am reluctant to have to send it back now.
I have recently started to lose my internet connection intermitently When I go to internet connections list my network is not there and if I just wait sometimes 10 mins and sometimes an hour poof it shows up.At the same time this happens I check my phone and tablet and they are both connected to my network as well as my hp wireless printer.
I have an HP G71-449WM HP notebook. It was all messed up and wouldn't let me restore to an earlier point at all so I reset it to the factory settings. I didn't make a back up because there was nothing I wanted to save. I am unable to connect to the internet now, wirelessly or by hooking up to an ethernet cable. It gets an error while going through the initial set up where you set your password for the pc, the time, etc. when it gets to the spot for connecting to the internet it gets an error, freezes up. I turn it off and turn it back on and it just loads like a normal computer, but can't connect to the internet no matter what. I've reset it to the factory settings about 5 times in the last 3 days and am getting the same problem each time. I have no recovery disks or anything.
I am using an HP Envy dv7-7250us laptop, running windows 8.1. All my software is up to date. In the last month, every time i turn on the laptop, the internet connection drops. Running HP troubleshooter resets the wifi adaptor.
I have Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 installed. I went out to Intel's website and have the most current driver.
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.
I have an Ideapad Y510 that has Vista and I'm having a problem connecting to the internet. I have other computers running in the house (this one I'm now typing on) so my internet is working correctly just not on my laptop. The laptop was working and connecting but something happened and now it says that I have limited access to the internet.
I read that it may not be getting an IP address assigned to it. I called my internet provider and they ran through their troubleshooting steps but figured it was in the computer. I don't know if the driver has been corrupted. I got the software CD that came with it and tried to load it again but it didn't work (not sure if I did it correctly).
I have been having some issues with the WiFi lately. Whenever i turn on the laptop, the internet conection is limited. i have to run the Windows troubleshooting every time i turn on my laptop to fix this.
I updated the Wifi drivers through Windows Update but the problem persist. What can i do to fix this?
I received my G570, and have had internet issues since. It can connect to my WiFi network, however after using the internet for a few minutes, it consistently gets the yellow "!" over the wifi icon in the task bar and says no internet connection and I loose my connection. I know it is an issue with THIS laptop since my old and decrepit HP laptop which sits next to it works perfectly fine using the same network, as well as my smartphone and room mate's devices.
I have downloaded the Lenovo update software and attempted to use it. I get a message saying something along the lines of no available packages, assuming that means everything is up to date in terms of drivers.
I have done some research with the terms "lenovo, g570, wifi, internet, problems, connection" and yield many pages, however none have seem to provide a solution that works for me.
My acer travelmate P645m internet connection is quite bad. It happens quite frequent as well.
When I connect my laptop to wi-fi (my own router and in the library), it always has a yellow triangle exclamation mark all of a sudden. As my phone connects to those wi-fi too, I have checked the internet is still working fine when it happens on my laptop, so I am sure it is my laptop that doesn't connect to the wi-fi stably. I will have to turn off the wi-fi and turn it on again to make sure it has access to the internet.
I know it is not a complicated process of turning off and on the wi-fi on my laptop but because I just bought the laptop two months ago, if there is any hardware problem, I would like to fix it within my warranty. Why the internet connection on my laptop is so poor?
My laptop has frozen while in hibernate mode on two occassions in the past two months. Though not a frequent occurance it is heart stopping when you have committed work to a customer and everything you need is on the laptop and not accessible.
The first time the machine was off. Opened the lid and pressed the power button and nothing - did not even light up the button. After no responses to any attempt to start the computer I removed the battery. Upon reinserting the battery the machine started working and everything was fine.
The second time the machine was off but left with the lid open. The power button was lit. No matter what I did there was no response - frozen again. Once again I removed the battery and upon reinserting the system again resumed working normally.
The only common thing is the laptop went into hibernate mode and would not respond to commands to wake up.
For the past week my laptop (which I've been using for only 3 months), running Windows 7, has been lagging. For Example, when I try to check my email using Live Mail, I click on a new email to read and it takes 20-30 seconds before the message loads. NOW it is not booting up. I try to start the computer and it goes to a black screen & says "Windows failed to start.
A recent hardware or software change might be the cause" so I let it boot in the diagnostic mode (I think that is what it was called, the only other option other than normal mode, but did not say Safe Mode) and it just goes to the blue background but no button to log in, or any way to do anything that I can see. I haven't loaded any new programs, I'm just running Quicken and Photoshop Elements, Mozilla, & Chrome and Norton anti-virus (courtesy of our Comcast internet service). Last night we tried to defrag the hard drive but that just sat at 2% for hours with no results.
I am working on a friend's laptop. Originally, the laptop had a bad power adapter. They heard a "popping" sound from what sounded like it came from the laptop itself. Laptop went dead. They bought a new power adapter but it won't even light up the LED's on the laptop itself. The new adapter definitely works.
Of course it's used for taxes, home business info, etc. So they ask me to look at it since I have 10+ years in IT and can do most PC repair stuff without batting an eye. Well, here I am. Laptop is not under warranty AND it's still being paid on as it was financed by Dell.
Here is what I did to troubleshoot:
1) Verified power adapter got power and works with another Dell laptop. 2) Verified laptop will not power on. 3) Removed bottom screws, plate, battery, etc. 4) Removed keyboard, screws, and top plate. 5) Found a lots of black markings on the motherboard, specifically at the circuitry near the battery port.
Determined it needed a motherboard and maybe other stuff but wasn't sure. Bought a new motherboard with a 90 day warranty from CHINA on eBay. Also bought a new keyboard since a key was missing and new fan since it was in rough shape.
The repair steps:
1) Removed old motherboard and took off heatsink and CPU. 2) Reseat CPU on new motherboard, added Arctic 5, Reinstalled heatsink. 3) Added new fan and buttoned everything up. Triple checked connections 4) THERE IS LIFE! Power supply now feeds power to the laptop as LED's are lit. 5) Power button is pressed, nothing on the video but the fan spins up and sounds healthy. No caps lock LED. Hooked up to a monitor DOES NOT WORK. No beeping, nothing. I figure maybe the CPU isn't working so I try reseating it. 6) Tear it all down again. Reseat CPU, new thermal paste, reinstall heatsink, button it back up. SAME THING. This time it's not fully reassembled.
I tried doing the D + Power Button to test the LCD. Looks like the screen does something, but it's dim and doesn't last long. I can't see if it tries to do anything in detail, but I notice a little bit of light omitted from the side. Tried discharging any static.
Normally, I would throw in another CPU or something, but I don't have spare parts for this laptop. How can I continue to troubleshoot this? Maybe a bad motherboard?
My Dell Inspiron 17 N7110 Keeps shutting itself down, recycling its system (I am sure I am using the wrong terminology). It will get to the dell logo screen and then go blank and restart itself. I spoke with someone at Techzilla who said that this has been happening to other people with this model. I removed the battery, tried hitting the F8, F11, F2 and F12 buttons. When I hit the F12 button the screen went to a black screen with a blinking curser in the upper right hand corner. This screen lasted about a second or two before it shuts down again and starts to recycle again. I was told that it's a software problem (that I downloaded a virus) but if others are having the same problem then I think it's a dell model issue not a software issue.
