Win 7 Internet


The majority of web pages will not load or take a very long time to load. It only happens on my windows 7 partition, not xp or vista. I've tried firefox, chrome, and ie. Using an asus striker extreme mobo with all drivers updated. Also when i am able to download a file sometimes it is corrupted when it finishes downloading, so an exe file will give an error when you try to run it for instance. I don't care as much about the others but i seem to have had problems with networking and the internet on any computer i install windows 7 on.

Tried it on an hp laptop and a lenovo laptop both with intel networking. The lenovo seemed to work fine over ethernet but always had problems with wireless. The hp always has problems. Installed it on a mac book pro with broadcom networking and had similar problems. I hope it's just general laziness on the part of companies writing the drivers and it'll be fixed by official release, but it's really annoying because the os is great otherwise and other users are not so patient as i am.

Can't Share Internet To Lan From Huawei 3g Internet Adaptor

I am in severe need of some help because i am about to go crazy trying to figure this out. I recently upgraded my mom's pc to windows 7 and i'm having trouble getting her network back in order. She has a huawei mobile broadband adaptor (3g), model ec168, that i'm trying to use to supply internet to her laptop and xbox360 via her router. I had it working for the last year when windows xp was still on her pc, but since installing windows 7, i can't get it to work. I'm using the same settings as i was before but i get nothing.
Here are the settings that used to work:

1. I enabled internet connection sharing on her 3g adaptor and shared it to the lan adaptor.

2. I set the lan's ip address to "192. 168. 0. 1"/subnet mask was the usual "255. 255. 255. 0" and the default gateway/dns server fields were left blank (since the pc was serving as the gateway and the dns sever).

3. I turned off dhcp on the router and set the router's ip to "192. 168. 0. 10"

4. I left the xbox360 and laptop set to "automatic"

With these settings it worked like a champ on xp, but i get nothing on windows 7. Also, everytime i turn ics "on" through the 3g adaptor, it says that it has assigned the ip address of "192. 168. 137. 1" to the lan. Not sure why but it does.

Security Updates Stop Internet Explorer From Connecting To Internet

All ie7 security updates i install (cumulative or not) cause ie7 to not be able to connect to the internet. I have to uninstall the security update in order to connect to the internet. I have windows vista 64, ie7 and cable internet. I have checked for virus's several time using microsoft security essentials and malwarebytes antivirus and it always comes back clean. I am also running windows firewall and have put internet explorer on the exception list as well as turned it off to see if that was causing it from connecting and it did nothing. Can someone please tell me how to fix this.

Wireless Internet Is Connected But No Internet Access

I just bought a new computer with os windows 7. As i was doing the set-up, it asked about the home wireless network and i identified it and entered the internet key. After the set-up was over, i cannot connect to the wireless network. It says connected and no internet access. It has the public icon and "unidentified network".

I have a "network error" window that keeps popping up that says "another computer on this network has the same ip address". I tried one of the solutions on this site to resolve it. I used the command prompt to release and renew the ip address and seems to not have worked. How can i get a valid ip address? And how can i make my computer recognize the home wireless network?

Internet Tv Not Available

I am running windows 7 ultimate and is able to run windows media centre with my tv turner - live tv works and the guide is fine. However, i do not see internet tv as an option from the start menu in wmc nor is there any trace of internet tv in the guide. I enabled all the automatically downloads and clicked "download now" a few times to ensure everything is downloaded. Hat notwithstanding, i still do not see the internet tv option. Any ideas?

Connecting To Internet

I received a sony netbook for christmas which has windows 7 starter (i assume) already on it. I also received optus mobile internet which works and i was able to connect to the internet of my friend but when i got home i am unable to connect to my home internet.

When i choose internet connections and my home service it asks for a username and password. I have tired all usernames and passwords - netbook, internet provider, etc. I have a wep key and this is what i have used to connect my ps3 and psp plus other computers in the home but windows 7 doesn't seem to have this same function. Is there any way of changing the requirements so that i can use the wep key instead of the username and password? Or is this simplifying the problem too far?
We use a router/modem combo for all our other appliances. There is no button on this device that allows it to connect (this was suggested by someone).

This is totally frustrating and i was thinking of updating other computers to windows 7 but now think i will stick with xp and vista.

Internet Not Working

Recently i got mobile broadband. Plug it in, it installs, hit connect and you are good to go. It works fine on my computer. Put in in my flatmate computer it installs, you hit connect open up internet explorer and nothing. Internet explorer acts as if there is no connection to the internet present. We tested it on other computers and it works fine.

We have tried to reset all internet settings back to default but still nothing. Any suggestions on what we can do to get it to work? P. S. I have a medium understanding of computers so can use command prompt to fix it if needed.

Loss Of Internet

I have spend countless hours trying to figure out why my realtek rtl8187b wireless 802. 11b-g 54mbps usb 2. 0 network adapter keeps disappearing after i shut my computer down or when i leave my computer on just for a little while. When i turn my computer on after shutting it down or after returning to my toshiba laptop after classes, i get a nice surprise! Behold. I have a red icon on my task bar.

Troubleshooting the problem is worthless, so i tried deleting all of my adobe services because they supposedly are the problem, but behold i still have the problem. I have tried everything! The only way that i am able to type this message is by me having to restart my computer to another point in time and then i get my internet back. This was a nice surprise.

Cannot Connect To Internet

I have a dell optiplex 760 desktop computer
Cable internet connection
Windows vista home basic operating system
Norton 360 internet security

This question has been addressed numerous times and i did read some answers, but each case seems to not be a perfect fit. I was on the internet and tried to to go to a different site and i got a message that the page could not be found. After that i couldn't get back to any page. I when i click on the diagnose option on the resulting error page, it tells me that it can't find a solution. The system had been running perfect for 3 months and i'm at a loss on what to do next. I did try to unplug to modem for 20 seconds, but that did not work. Maybe i need to unplug the modem for a longer period of time.

Two Internet Explorer

I have a hp pavilion notebook pc. I was running vista home premium. I had a "free upgrade" when windows 7 was released. I followed the install (update not clean install) instructions for windows 7 and everything showed successful. My problem is i have 2 internet explorers. 1st- "internet explorer (64-bit)", 2nd is listed as program(x86) internet explorer. My computer is running a 64-bit system. This happened when i upgraded to windows 7. I thought (x86) runs with 32-bit system. How do i correct this? Problem installing other software.

-Connect directly to the modem
-Uninstalling network drivers (letting win automatically installing them again)

Any suggestions?

Very Slow Internet

Ever since i installed windows 7 pro x64 my internet has been acting weird. There are 3 other computers on the network running windows xp pro 32-bit and one running vista home premium 32bit. When ever someone else is downloading something or watching a movie online my internet slows down to sub dial up speeds from it's normal 3mbit speed. It only does it on this computer, when i am downloading something none of the others slow down at all.

It only does this with 7 also, it doesn't do this with xp or vista. I have searched all over the internet and have found nothing helpful. Everything i have come across hasn't worked a bit. I have reinstalled 7 a few times and even tried all the different versions of the ethernet card driver i could find and nothing helps.

No Internet Access

I am having problems connecting to the internet via wifi with windows 7. The connection works with my desktop and apple laptop, but my new windows 7 laptop cannot connect regularly. I can connect to the local network, but it cannot then connect to the internet. I have restarted my computer multiple time, restarted my modem multiple time, restarted my router multiple times, used windows problem solver to check for the issue and it hasn't come up with anything. What should i do.

This is really annoying, especially since windows has advertised how easy it is to connect to wifi, yet that is not the case.

Internet Access

I'm yet again having problems connecting to the clients internet at work on various sites i work on, i 've manually set up the connection and when i try connecting wirelessly it finds the router but it wont acquire the network address

I can connect by hardwiring but i cannot view web pages, i've been in contact with their it support who had me look at a few things and that the ip address was different to what it should be and that he couldn't do any more without taking the laptop to him

I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what the problem could be, he seemed to lose interest with trying to fix it through constant emails

I have a windows 7 laptop which i can;t connect and a xp laptop that i used to be able to connect but i formatted it and now i'm having the same problem as the windows 7, i can connect both laptops to my home network without any problems whatsoever

Internet Times Out

I just upgraded my computer from ubuntu to win 7. My internet speeds with win7 are as slow as when i had dial-up. The other computers in the house all have normal speeds (xp, vista and linux) so i think this is a 7 problem. Whenever i ping the win7 machine i get a 75% packet loss. This was not happening before i upgraded that machine to win7. Solutions i have tried:ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew disable ipv6 disable firewall/antivirus reset modem/router reset router to factory settings any solution would be great because i can't wait 5 hours for web pages to load anymore.

Internet Radio

I am unable to play internet radio stations. When i select the icon or "listen" for a radio station i am asked to save the file "playstation. Wax". If i save the file, i do not know where to save it. If i save it anywhere, the station still does not play. I had this problem using windows vista, then upgraded to windows 7 and media player 12, but still get the same response. I just imported the same corruption. How do i fix that?  I have another computer, using windows xp, and it works just fine.

Watching Internet Tv

Can someone please tell me how to watch internet tv through windows media center? Everytime i click on a pre-recorded show (like the andy griffith show for example), it says: video not available at this time or is being blocked by ad blocker in your browser. If blockage is the problem, how do i unblock it. I know i can watch shows thru fancast, etc. , But since i've paid for this new computer i believe i should be able to enjoy it through whatever function i choose. I feel i'm getting jipped (don't know if word is spelled correctly).

Accessing Internet

On my laptop (dell inspiron 6000) which has windows xp, i cannot access the internet by url icon or hotmail icon. I immediately get an ie error message stating there is a problem and needs to close. The error signature is: appname: iexplore.exe, appver: 8. 0. 6001. 1872, modname: sepsearchhelperie.dll, modver: 1. 3. 59. 0, offset: 0000fbb4.

Although a 'webpage' appears i cannot select 'tools' and when i select 'close' on the error message the 'webpage' closes. My desktop pc works a. O. K. With no problems accessing internet, and likewise with another 'wireless' laptop. I have contacted my url provider but without success in resolving this problem.

Internet Disconnecting

Occasionally my internet disconnects and i get the yellow triangle in the bottom right. However it is just my computer which can't connect to the internet and other devices connected to the same modem still work. It seems like it can't communicate with the modem or something. As a temporary fix restarting my computer or restarting the router and modem seem to work sometimes, but it happens around one to two times a day and it is very annoying. What could be causing this problem? Troubleshooting and repairing the connection doesn't seem to work. I am on a wired connection.

I don't know if this is related, but in hopes of fixing this, i've updated my network adapter driver (intel 82567lf-2), but the problem still persists.

Cannot Connect To Internet At All

Have had no problems for months, but after a lockup and reboot i cannot connect to the internet at all. I am using a cable modem with a linksys router. Two other pcs on the router have no trouble connecting so it is not a modem or router problem. I am set for auto detect ip and my current ip is 169. 254. 88. 3 so i know it is a problem with tcp/ip or dhcs on my pc. I am running vista sp 2. I tried netsh winsock reset catalog

And tried resetting the tcp/ip stack with netsh int ip reset reset log.txt but nothing worked and no log file (resetlog.txt) was created. I tried reseting the dhcp service with no luck. Ny ideas?

Internet Keeps Freezing

No matter if i am on internet explorer or mozilla firefox i can hardly get online. I just bought a laptop that came with windows 7 and i can hardly do anything online with it. I keep having to open my task manager and closing my task and reopening my internet just to have it start all over again! I don't have this problem with my home computer that has xp. Should i find a way to take windows 7 off my laptop and put an older version on? This is crazy. I did not pay all this money for a new laptop to not be able to get online.

Internet Wont Connect

Internet won't connect, can't access anything past network and internet screen in control panel, programs won't open or uninstall, everything just continually "thinks" (little blue circle spins round and round . I just bought a brand new laptop less than 5 days ago. The internet and all programs worked fine all weekend, up until last night when i turned it off. This evening, i turned on the laptop, and the internet will not connect, either wirelessly or when directly connected.

It's not a problem with the internet, as my desktop is working just fine. The internet icon in the task bar in the lower right corner starts off with the little blue circle on top of the bar graph, and then turns into an "x". When i try to right click on it, it pulls up the network and internet screen but freezes and will not tell me the network status, or any other information.

When i go to the windows task manager, it says all applications are running. When i go to networking within windows task manager, it says the wireless internet is connected, and when i connect directly to my modem, it also says that is connected, but no network ever shows up in the task bar, and ie will not open.

Windows also installed approximately 15 updates upon starting the computer this evening. I tried to uninstall the updates, but the uninstall program freezes. Updates it installed automatically include windows malicious software removal tool x64 january 2010, security updates (various), update for windows 7 for x64-based systems, etc.

I also have norton antivirus installed on the laptop (it came with a free trial). It does not appear in the task bar in the right corner anymore. When i click the desktop link, or when i try to open it via the start menu, it does not open. When i tried to uninstall it, the whole thing just froze (similar to when i tried to uninstall all other updates).

Drive Mapping Across The Internet

I would like to map a drive on a computer that is on the internet. My configuration is as follows:

Pc1 <-> linksys wrt140n router 1 <-> internet <-> linksys wrt140n router 2 <-> pc2

On pc2, i have shared drive c as diskc. I have set router 2 to forward all messages to pc2 (dmz).
On pc1, i try to map the diskc share using router 2 ip address diskc. The connection fails.

My question, is it possible to do this? Is there a port that i can open that sharing uses instead of using dmz? On a related note, i have forwarded port 3389 (remote desktop) on router 2 to pc2. I can then use pc1 to connect to pc2 using remote desktop in windows. This works correctly. If i move pc1 to router2 and try to connect to the diskc share, the connection succeeds. Pc1 is running win 7, pc2 is running xp

Internet Shortcuts Do Not Work

My computer crashed so i purchased a brand new harddrive and installed windows 7 from scratch. My antivirus is mcafee. Since finishing the install any shortcut i make on the desktop to any internet site will not work. If i go one ie8 and save the site as a favorite, i can get there from the explorer. Not the shortcuts, even if i use the file button and create the shortcut while on the site. My laptop has windows 7 (purchased that way) and i don't have any problems with shortcuts but i am not using mcafee on the laptop.

No Internet Access At Reboot

I installed windows 7 home. I have a netgear wireless home router wgt624v. 3 everything was working fine after setting up router. But when i reboot, it loses the router. I look under network before the reboot i see residential gateway under network infrastructure. And under network and sharing center i see netgear home under active networks. After reboot under network sharing center i see unidentified network along with netgear home network. To resolve this connection i have to disable then enable the network adapter. Then everything gets identified and i get access to the internet. I am at a total loss on what to do to fix this.

Thanks in advance. When i log into windows, everything works fine until i try to connect to the internet through wireless connection. I have also tried using the ethernet cord.
