HP Split 13-m111sa Lockups :: Dropping WiFi Connection
Mar 10, 2012
My daughter has a HP Split 13-m111sa x2 notebook/tablet. She got it in March of this yearand it is currently running Win 8.1 OS with updates applied.
The problem/symptoms are this: - The WiFi connection she uses both at home and school is dropping after about 5 mins after connection. It is happening with different WiFi connections both secure and open requiring login (eg BT WiFi hot spots).
Steps/action taken so far:-
Removed known networks and re-joined
Performed IPCONFIG /flush on device
Provided static IP address to WiFi at home, different to the one supplied by the router but in the same range.
I've had an HP Laptop Pavilion g6 for around a year, operating on Windows 8.1
I'm repreatedly (and increasingly) losing wifi connection to router - all other devices using the same wifi connection (desktop pc, nexus phone, samsung phone) all retain connection and internet access but the Pavilion keeps dropping off.
I am getting intermittently dropped wifi connection. It is a new/nearly new xps 12 convertible from the Dell outlet store a couple of months ago. I have installed all windows updates including win 8.1. My network adapter is an Intel Dual band wireless AC-7260 #2. I searched on the intel site using the auto driver function and it cannot find any new drivers there for it.
I have also set the wifi adapter to "maximum performance" whether on battery or plugged in and it happens anyway (even when plugged into AC).Is there anything I can do for this or does a technician need to replace the wifi card (or do I need to RMA the notebook)?
I reinstalled Vista 64-bit Business on my laptop. And I've installed all of the drivers which are working, but my wifi drops out every 20-30 minutes. I've done some research and found this isn't uncommon...
so I installed the lastest Intel drivers, disabled all of the power saving features on my wifi card/DCP.
But, it still disconnects! What the heck!? I might have had this same issue in Windows 7, but I can't really remember. All I know is that when I tried to back it up using WHS, it would always fail.
I just got my new HP ENVY laptop. Product Name: m6-k025dx. It runs on Windows 8 64-bit. I am experiencing sudden, frequent loss of my Wifi connection. When it gets disconnected I don't even get the Connect To slider (which slides from the right side of the screen and shows the list of networks) on clicking the network button at bottom right corner of the screen. I need to restart my laptop to get connected again and after 5-7 minutes, I lose it again.
editing the Power Plan to maximum performance and unchecking "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" but nothing seems to work.
The network driver is Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230. I have also updated the driver and turned off Bluetooth and ethernet
I live at a Loft where everyone tenant has their own ATT 2wire modem. Periodically, the connection will drop and sometimes, it won't connect back. The 2wire modem at my loft WAS WPA protected and I've read that if you change it to WEP, it would solve the problem. I thought this was legitimate as my 2wire modem back home is WEP protected and my connection never dropped back at home.
So I changed it to WEP here at the Lofts and for about a day, there was no dropped connections. Now, the dropping is back even on WEP.
The Wifi on this laptop keeps either dropping connection, or changing to a "limited" network. Sometimes it works fine, but more often than not it drops out. All other wifi enabled devices in my house work fine, so I know it's not the internet. I've also tested on two other networks where the same dropping out occurs.
Windows 8 64 Bit Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (up to date)
I've been trying to use a Logitech ultrathin touch bluetooth mouse and microsoft sculpt mobile bluetooth keyboard with my ideapad. I'm running Windows 8.1. Both work fine for a while but then it appears they lose the bluetooth connection. This seems to often coincide with access network/internet over WiFi. The only solution is to call up the Bluetooth manage devices setting and let it reconnect. If I leave the manage bluetooth device page open on a second screen it works, but clearly its not ideal!
I was running the Lenovo driver for Bluetooth but I've tried removing it and using the Generic Windows driver. So far though the same happened after a short while.
I bought this Split x 2 a week ago and it came with WIndows 8. Everything was working fine until I upgraded to WIndows 8.1. Now my Touchpad will freeze some times and I have to log out and log back in to my profile to unfreeze the touchpad other times I can get it to unfreeze by resetting the release touch screen buttom.
I called HP customer service and they said it was a Microsoft issue and transfer me to them. Microsoft said it was a hardware (HP) Issue and that i needed to go back to the store where I bought it(BestBuy). I took it back yesterday to BestBuy and they gave me a knew one. I did the same thing and upgraded to Windows 8.1 and touchpad issues is back. So pretty sure is not a hardware issue.
All windows updates are completed. I checked the Touchpad's Driver and it is up to date.
NOTE: I plugged a wireless mouse to my laptop and when the touchpad freezes the wireless mouse still works.
Everything else works great on the laptop is just very inconvenient when you are working and you have to log out to get your touchpad to work again.
My Split X2 occasionally locks on the blue HP logo during startup. Usually a hard restart will work with no other issues. A few times, including today, the hard restart does not work and it continues to lock on the logo screen. I hard restarted around ten times today before it finally fully booted.
I bought this HP Split X2 about two months ago. When I am working on it, if I move and the screen moves ever so slightly back and forth, it will completely shut down. I have to adjust the screen to a angle where the power button will turn it on.
On my new X1 Carbon, with a new Netgear R8000 router, The X1 will not hold a wifi connection, even 3 feet from the router. There is plenty of signal strength on all 3 channels. It connects for a while, but then the icon turns to "limited", and I have no internet connection. It works with my older Netgear WNDR 4500. Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector sees the three channels with plenty of signal, but will not plot them. I even tried reducing the maximum rate to 289 Mbps, and it still will not maintain a 5 GHz connection.
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.
Called tech support about this problem 18MR14. They did not fix the problem. I cannot stay connected to wi-fi with this envy 1400 even thought my Ipad, Iphone and other computer stay connected. I also have a problem with my printer showing as offline with this computer. I have about had it with this computer. Has windows 8.1
I tried a quick search but didn't come up with anything...
On my e6400, once in a while the wifi connection is intermittent and drops out for 10-15 seconds, comes back for a while, then drops out again. This doesn't happen all of the time, but is happening now as I type this out with it on my lap.
I'll admit I haven't really tried to diagnose. This has the following wifi card: Dell Wireless 1510 802.11a/g/n Draft Mini Card
I have an hp envy m6 laptop. I can not get it to connect to my wifi connection the modem/router are in the same room as the laptop but yet no connection I called Twc (ISP) and no problem on their end.&l;The funny thing is all my other devices (ps3,4,iPhone iPod you name it it picks up the connection) when I use an Ethernet Cable with my laptop but I obviously got to stay In one spotAlso before I forget all all hp/ windows updates have been done so it is current
Our Insprion 15 laptop initially dropped its WiFi connection (showed "No Internet Access") about 3-4 times when it was first turned on. It hasn''t happened since (3 days in use). Was this just normal - while looking for the right version of 801.1 or what?
Just got my new Macbook Pro 13 a few days ago, so far I love it but not used to the MAC OS so I have a few questions.
1. Is there a way to see the actual signal strength/transmission information for the Wifi connection other then the 4 little eclipses? Doesn't seem like I'm getting a full wireless-n signal but somewhere around wireless-g.
2. When I install a program or at least it has happened with AppCleaner and Firefox, it put an icon on the desktop, sort of like when I have a DVD in with the Eject, Get Info ... etc options, I managed to remove them by choosing the Eject option. Is this normal?
3. Do I really need a virus scanner, I've seen a 50/50 split on yes and no.
My HP Pavilion 14e016tx (win 7, 64-bit, ralink rt3290 802.11) just won't detect any WiFi connections. Sometimes it does detect but when I try to connect, it always show the failure message ("windows was unable to connect to xxxxx".
I recently purchased a PC Hp Envy 17 j106sf and the wifi connection does not work correctly.The wifi speed used to be over 20Mb/s on my old computer and is now under 2Mb/s. The Ethernet works perfectly fine. The wifi card is a Ralink RT3290 802. 11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter. How can I fix my wifi ?
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 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.
