    We are using WiFi on 4 devices but only mine is working. The other 3 devices are connected with excellent signal strength but with no access to internet. We have turned the devices on and off but to no avail. The WiFi covers the whole building and the building is large and commercial. What could be the reason for this? Is it because of too much traffic? When trying to connect, the message reads " no hotspot configured on this interface" please suggest.

  • Router not working?

    I had to change modems because my ISP no longer accepts my old one. Internet is working from modem, but when I connect the modem to the router, a wired connection from the router to the computer isn't giving me internet. No less, neither my computer or phone are getting internet wirelessly. I never had problems with my router before until I bought this new modem. I tried so many things. I've done troubleshoot on Windows which led me to network reset and virtual driver wipe. I looked up online solutions which led me to reset tcp/ip stack, factory reset my router, restart my router, restart my modem, and restart my computer. I doubt I need to upgrade any drivers because everything was working perfectly before. I can access the router's browser settings without a problem and it broadcasts just fine. But of all things, it's not broadcasting the internet. So what's wrong with the modem?

  • Windows 10, Cannot Connect to WIFI?

    I used to use ethernet cable but recently stopped. I decided to use wireless internet but my Windows 10 PC only lets me connect to ethernet. On the notification bar, it doesn’t show the wifi icon but the ethernet one. So how do I use wireless wifi instead of ethernet cables?

  • How to see whether computers are connected to the network via cable or wireless?

    Hey! I'm an administrator for the network in a big company. The employees have laptops which can be connected to a docking station (brand: HP).

    Hey! I'm an administrator for the network in a big company. The employees have laptops which can be connected to a docking station (brand: HP). These docking stations are connected via ethernet cables. We know that many of these cables are connected to network points on the walls, that aren't even patched. Is there anyway via executing powershell commands or whatever, to find out which PC's are connected via cable or wireless (LAN or WIFI)? There are about 300 of these machines in the building, so checking physically really isn't an option. Thank you for reading and i hope someone has a solution! :)

It only gave me about 5.04 megabits yet it is still a wired conenction. I tried to made it connect the 5ghz wifi but the LAN name is under the 2.4ghz ones. Any idea how to make it connect to a 5ghz internet or fix the issue? Thnx

However, I noticed that although fast, the WiFi connection is often unstable when using my laptop in my room, and frequently disconnects for half a minute, while my desktop computer does not disconnect at all.

My download speed is also significantly slow now.

  • How to reset NetGear router without Recovery CD?

    Best answer: I have never seen a router that has a "Recovery CD". Some have a "Set-up CD", although normally this is not required as you can configure a router through an Internet browser.

    If you were doing a firmware update and it went wrong, then it is possible that the firmware loading code was corrupted, then it may no longer be able to update the firmware. If this is the case then you have created a paper-weight and a new router is the answer.

    The manual for this router says:

    "If the Power LED blinks slowly and continuously, the router firmware is corrupted. This
    can happen if a firmware upgrade is interrupted or if the router detects a problem with the
    firmware. If the error persists, you have a hardware problem. For recovery instructions or
    help with a hardware problem, contact technical support at
    www.netgear.com/support."

    So the firmware is corrupt.

    I hope this helps.

  • Why do I get kbps speeds in download when my Speedtest says I’m getting 250 mgps down and 50 upload?( using a MSI computer that’s very good)?

    Best answer: It is likely due to your source. Sites that offer downloads aren't going to always give great speeds. It has nothing to do with your computer it is the computer sending you the file.
