Wireless Connection Lost


I have a wireless connection for the internet set-up to my neighbors house and although my pc says there's a good signal between us, i often lose my internet connection, especially when microsoft have downloaded an update. I am sure the fault is somewhere in my own pc. When it does happen, i have to use system restore every time to re-establish the internet link. The fault number which appears is: 80072ee7, i being a silver surfer have no idea what that means or what to do about it.

Lost Connection To Cd-rom

I have a new system including a cd-rom: ad-7240s sony nec with s-ata physical connection. It has worked but now windows refuse to recognize it. I have found a "firmware 1. 03" that perhaps should be installed, but sony optiarc warns me: "sony optiarc europe gmbh is not liable for any damages caused by incorrect installation of firmware updates on its devices. Also note that our firmware updates are not compatible with those provided by oem vendors (e.g. Hp, dell, fujitsu siemens computers, apple etc. ). You may damage your drive if you flash it with incompatible firmware. "

Internet Connection Lost On Restart

I've just installed windows 7, after having windows xp installed for the last 8 years. Everything is more or less good, however i have an internet connectivity issue (which i did not have in windows xp - so can't blame modem/router for that). Every time i would restart my computer (restart/shut down and turn back on - same thing) i would lose the connection to the internet. The network icon on the bottom right would have a warning sign on it. The way i have found to solve this is to unplug the network cable and plug it back in, which causes the connection to reappear correctly.
 
I have asus p5n32-e sli motherboard and have installed the drivers that came with it after windows 7 installation, i have then updated the drivers to what was recommended by windows 7 in the update service - that is when the issue began i believe.

External Hard Drive Connection Was Lost While Watching Video

I was watching a video from one of my external hard drives. Halfway through the video, the hard drive's usb connection was lost. Some data was lost and i can't access one of my folders that also has videos in it. Thank goodness i have back-up drives which.

I don't connect but once a week so i didn't lose too much data. All of my other hard drives are fine. I have three main external hard drives connected by way of a 13 port usb hub which is then connected to my computer "dell xps 720". I'm running windows 7 64 bit. I then have three more back-up drives which i don't turn on until i'm ready to do back-ups which i am afraid of doing for fear of losing more data if another drive disconnects. To bring the drive back up i turned it off waited 10 secs and turned it back on.

I was able to restore all the data but one folder that says "f:"directory name" is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. " I'm not sure what i should do with that directory. This never happened under windows xp. I do like the way windows 7 looks, but there are other problems that i have which i will not put in this post. I think i will connect all of my drives to an xp machine and do my back-ups and keep my back-up drives disconnected from windows 7 unless someone has an explaination for this. This is the first time it has happened.

Cannot Detect Wireless Connection

I have a wireless modem set up and other laptops in my house can get a signal but my own personal laptop cannot. The wireless network list on my computer shows that the network is detected and that i am connected. Despite this, the signal comes in and out and tends to be very weak. The signal on the bottom right shows full bars so the signal is supposedly very good but somehow i cannot get on the internet. I have tried multiple websites and the message that internet explorer cannot open the web page comes up.

Wireless Connection Service Error

I am currently using a sony vaio laptop. When i use the web function, my wireless connects without any problem. However, when i load my computer i cannot seem to connect. The troubleshooter says 'windows can't communicate with the device or resource (primary dns server). Also, the ipv4 says 'internet', the ivp6 says 'no internet access'. I have tried following some of the other advice but the 'run' function will not allow me to run commands as the administrator, even though i am the only user on my laptop.

Vista And 7 Wireless Connection Problem

I am a customer in a bar that has a wireless access point. A new router was recently installed. I am running xp on my laptop. I have no problems connecting, but every person who comes in with a vista or 7 system gets limited connectivity or no connection at all. The router defaults to wpa/wpa2 - mixed mode. In my xp, i had to delete the old property for the old router and let the system create a new property for it. In my wireless networks connections, the property for the bar shows the setting as wpa2-psk as the network authentication, and aes as the data encryption. In the vista computers i have looked at, the settings that appear in the list are wpa2-personal and wpa2-e-something (can't recall the word).

In 7, i can't find this info at all. In vista and 7, the wireless networks tab does not show up in the wireless network connections properties. What do i need to do to correct these problems in vista and 7 so the other users here can connect to the new router?

Losing Wireless Network Connection

Running w7 home prem 32bit isp cable high speed, home network configuration. Service to cable modem to router. More often than not when i power on my wireless laptop i am not connected to my network. Windows shows networks are available, i see y network. And it shows good excellent signal levels, i run the windows diagnostics and it reads, power off router and and power back on and following this process the wireless latop gets connected to my network.

I have changed out the router, the issue continued. I have checked for updated network card driver, i have the latest available. Once connected i never loose the connection. And i would guess i have checked for firmware updates for router, none are available. I connect 3 out of 5 times when i power on the laptop. The network is wpa-psk with a security phrase set. Suggestions to resolve this issue?

Wireless Internet Connection Problems

I got a new sony vaio laptop for my birthday yesterday and i have spent all night and all of today trying to connect it to the wireless internet in my house. It has windows seven and my computer techonologically informed friend says that because my new laptop is with windows seven, but the router is hooked up through a vista computer, that it is not compatible and my laptop is not letting me connect to the wireless. When we tried to investigate the problem on my laptop, it says that it is connected to my netgear system, but the connection is not strong enough for me to actually use the internet.

 I did not have this problem with my previous windows xp acer laptop. It didn't have a problem connecting and allowing me access to the router. My friend believes this is a fault with windows seven, and so i have turned to this site for help. We have investigated as many possibilities as we could but could not resolve the situation. Is there something wrong with my computer? Or is this a common problem that is easily fixed?

Wireless Connection Drops After Pc Reboot

I have recently upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 and im using a hp pavilion machine. After i reboot the machine after it has been turned off for more than a few hours i can not get it to connect to my router. I have to restart the router twice and keep restarting the pc and doing a new wireless connection. I believe i have the latest drivers as the network adapter driver was downloaded from windows update. I have contacted netgear who make the router and they say ts fine as my iphone and xbox connect to it without the reboot. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Using Both Wired And Wireless Connection - 1 For Internet 1 For Printer

Using both a wired connection and wireless connection - one for internet access, one for printer access. We have a business dsl account, where we get 5 static ip addresses. We use the dsl router to connect 2 computers, a nas, and another wireless router, to provide access to others.

We have a networkable hp officejet 8500 a909g, but no longer have any more available ports to add it to the network. What i contemplated doing was hard-wiring the printer to the wireless router, then using the wireless card on my laptop, and a wireless adapter on the desktop (these are the 2 computers hard-wired to the dsl router) to connect to the wireless router, allowing us to see the printer and use it.

However, whenever i do this, the wireless connections seem to take precedence over the wired connections, which sort of negates the fact that they are wired in the first place. Is there a way to give the wired connection precedence, and then using the wireless only when we need to print? And does the computer being connected to two networks at one cause any problems?

Wireless Connection Key Case Issue

I installed windows 7 on my hp tc4400. Im using wireless network. At home my wep key (64-bit) is all digits so it's no problem. At work, the wireless key (128-bit) combines bot digits and lower case characters. I found out that the wireless management automatically converts the lower-case alphabets into upper-case. That un-wanted conversion causing the problem because i cannot connect to network at work. How can i fix it?

D-link Dwa-130 Usb Wireless Network Connection Problem

My nic keeps loosing connection, i get a message saying default gateway not found and then i unplug the nic and plug it back in and it works for 5-10 mins then looses connection again, although my other pc keeps it's connection. I'm running windows7 64 bit. I've been told to uninstall the drivers that came with the nic and let windows install it's own drivers, does anyone know where i can find the windows drivers on the ms site?

Am i able to download the drivers then uninstall the d-link drivers and then install the windows drivers rather than connecting the pc hardwired to the router, this means i'll have to unplug the pc and move it to another location to wire it to the router which i don't really want to do.
