When I turn on wifi on my android phone, my computer loses its connection.

Q: When I turn on wifi on my android phone, my computer loses its connection.

This is my setup:

1. I have a internet gateway(modem/router combo Super G) in the living room. I am using U-verse.
2. I have desktop that has a USB wireless n adapter in my room.
3. Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, Norton internet security 2012
Here is my issue:

When my android phone connects to the router by turning on wifi mode, my computer loses its connection, but the phone connects and works fine.
This only happens when I turn wifi on near the computer, or turn wifi on and enter in my room. When the devices are somewhat far apart, the computer doesn't lose its connection. For example, turing wifi on in the living room and stay there, my computer stay connected.
And it happens only when I use a USB wireless n adapter. A USB wireless g adapter doesn't show this problem.
By the way, my android phone is wifi b,g,n compatible.

To test, I turned my laptop on, which is wifi b,g,n compatible, next to my desktop computer and both worked fine. However, when I turn wifi on on my phone, my desktop loses it connection, but my laptop stay connected.

I've check the ip on all the devices, and the devices show different ip addresses so, the router assigned or recognized the devices correctly, I would assume.

So, what seems be the problem? Does anyone know? Thanks.

I had posted this question in a few android/phone based forums and unfortunately no one there that can offer a solution. Hence, I joined here and looking for a solution and I am sure it is doable as one of my other phone is able to do it so basically it must be something to do with the settings on the phone or installing an additional pieve of software or app. Here is the question....

I am trying to connect to my office wifi which uses a proxy server.

Scenario 1: I am using Samsung Bada (wave 1), connected to the internet successfully and also any applications that require an internet connection including Samsung's app store.

While, connecting via open networks like home wifi and other friends' wifi also worked without any issue.

Scenario 2: Now I also have an android based Galaxy pocket: even after entering all the required proxy setting as mentioned above, I can access websites via browser but cannot access samsung's app store, google's play store, skype, sipdroid etc.,

I know it is nothing to do with the network administration as I am still accessing via my samsung wave but not via android. Please help me in identifying what I am missing. Is there anything like a network profile I need to assign for these applications?

Hello guys,

I had my phone working on my home network, but after wiping it to try a new ROM, I cannot connect back to my Win8 network.

Previously I was on a Homegroup on 5 PC's in my home... all the same local user account name and NO password.

Now I get a Login Failure message on my phone which lists some things that could be at fault, but none seem right. Ive been trying to change sharing options on my main PC to see if that helps, but it doesnt.

My phone "sees" the main computer when I do a LAN server scan, but clicking on the found server the error says it may be caused by: "WiFi is off, SMB server is out of network scope, The IP is invalid, Blocked by the firewall, SMB service is off" None of which I think are correct since I have not changed anything on the pcs up till now.

Any ideas?

I've had experience this problem for a while now on my newly built windows 10 rig. Every few hours, my Wifi simply stops working; the connection is lost. Sometimes it reconnects after a minute or so. Most of the time, I would need to manually disable/enable the wifi adapter in my Network Settings to get it back up again.

It happened with a relatively expensive adapter that I bought not to long ago - Netgear A6210 USB 3.0 dual-band wifi adapter. I found a thread about this issue here. I've not been able to resolve it with any of the tips provided (including downloading a generic 3rd party Mediatek driver). I've used this same adapter without this problem on my older Win7 machine. I thought maybe this adapter "went bad".

So I tried to replace this adapter with an older Wifi adapter made by Rosewill, using older Rosewill drivers. The same issue occurs. (Again, this Rosewill adapter worked perfectly in my Win7 system) So I have a hunch the problem is Windows 10 itself. Does it not place nicely with existing or older wifi adapters on the market? Would I need to buy a new adapter specifically certified for Windows 10?

Anyone have any insights on this would be greatly appreciated.

I have asked before but cannot find the original post so my problem is -

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone and I keep info I use all the time ie codes, appointment times etc in an app called memo now this has been transferred to the SD card thinking I could open the memo and copy the info/data direct to my laptop or desktop but am met with a barrage of things to do like install Kies etc etc ad nauseum and then use sync the device etc only to find I still cannot open anything but photos everything else is just an empty or folder filled with jibberish.

What I would lie to find out is why data cannot be accessed from the phone even though I have installed the Kies and done everything that has been suggested?? I am now thinking of just taking photos of the memo app when it is open because I have already lost the lot when the phone crashed once before and redoing the data is annoyingly time consuming and extremely tedious.

Any ideas please - oh have asked on the android forum with not much luck.

John are you trying to view your memos on the computer or transfer them to a new samsung phone? Memo is superseded by snotes I think so info will be scarce but do you have root on your phone? If you want to copy your notes as pics hold power and the home button at the same time it will take a clean screenshot for you.

My Lenovo a 516 connects to the virtual hotspot (my pc), but it doesn't actually receive any data. I can't browse or download.

I have a WIFI dongle (wireless usb nano adapter) connected to my pc, which i think works fine. The problem is with pc's settings because i tried this with 2 phones and outcome was the same.

I do not have much knowledge about how these things work and might have messed up some settings (ip, dns mask- all those things they as u to change,, on youtube).

Kindly help me rectify this..

PS: When i connected the phone after installing the dongle very first time it worked just fine, i was able to browse and download. Now. Then the wifi fan symbol in my phone showd 2 arrows, both sending and receiving data. Now when i open the browser and try entering any site it shows only upward arrow and thats it.

Sorry if I sound like a complete novice (because I am one) but the problem basically presents itself.
I have a Dell Inspiron with Windows Vista (don't ask me why) which is connected to the internet via an ethernet port (because I live in a college dorm).
So I tried to convert this into a wifi for my Samsung phone and tablet androids by making it into an adhoc connection, but they didnt register it. After much Google-ing I realised that androids don't support ad-hoc connections.
I even tried installing Connectify. But once again it created an ad-hoc connection as my laptop is Vista, which is incompatible.

I also read all this stuff about rooting your phone etc. which basically scared the hell out of me because I don't want to damage my devices and I'm afraid I might just, if I mess it up. They work absolutely fine otherwise.

So basically my question is, is there ANY way (an app, a software; no configuration required please) in which I can connect an android device to an Ethernet internet connection via Vista?

Thanks in advance. Especially to those who can explain in easy language.

A:Connecting Android Tablet and Phone to Ethernet Connection on Laptop

You cannot connect a phone to anything via ethernet unless the phone has an ethernet port, and I know of none which have such a port.

To connect a cellphone to the internet via wireless, there must be a wireless modem or router within range in the building, and that wireless router must already be connected to the internet.

I need help!

When I'm not using my wired internet connection, I usually use whatever unprotected wifi connections are available nearby. Trouble is, my computer sometimes loses connection, and I can't connect to any other wifi networks because it says it can't detect any. I have to restart my computer and connect again, and this works fine until the connection inevitably drops.

I've tried switching the wifi switch on and off repeatedly and it still doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated and if whoever answers this needs more info about my computer, then I can provide.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT:: I went into Device Manager to see if there were any problems there, and in the 6TO4 adapter properties, I got this message.

This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.

So I clicked on it, but nothing seems to be happening. Will look around to see if I can get any answers from elsewhere, but again, all help is appreciated.

A:Wifi loses connection - help!

Hi Nikkerloo,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

First, just because a nearby wireless connection is unprotected doesn't mean it is legal to use it. They typically belong to neighbors or other people or companies (who haven't the skill or knowledge or gotten help protecting the router) and when you use them you are using their paid-for access which not only slows down their connection, but may cost them money as they may be on a limited plan and thus would be paying also for your usage of their connection. Not only is this illegal, but it is unethical and immoral as well. Plus such signals are almost always weak (and the owners may turn them off), so getting disconnected is not all that unexpected even if everything were working properly - which the error suggests may not be the case here though it may be a factor. This does not apply to places like Starbucks and computer kiosks and such where wifi is provided and some may or may not be protected, but they have a specific connection (you can't just use any others that may show up) and it isn't "any nearby unprotected wifi connection" and, as a general rule, the signal is quite strong when you are in a location where connecting to that network is appropriate.

If you decide to setup and use your own wireless network (or need help connecting in places like Starbucks if that is something you need and are unable to do), I will be more than happy to assist you with this problem; however, I cannot in good conscience assist you... Read more

I have an HP Desktop PC running Windows 7 home premium. It has an ethernet connection to my Huawei router. I have 2 other devices that connect wirelessly to the internet. The problem is that the desktop keeps losing the internet connection after running ok for a while. I run networking diagnostics but no problem is found - the network and sharing dialogue says I'm connected to the internet. The wifi devices are ok. I have to reboot to regain the internet connection. This has been happening for about a month, but was working fine until then. I even tried doing a system restore to an earlier date but it made no difference.

About a week ago I noticed that some how my email account, which is a hotmail/ account that I have use with out issue for over twelve years, began sending mail to all of my contacts that I did not generate. I have had a strong password too, I access the account on both my (Sprint EVO HTC Android phone) and computers. I primarily use the web based mail account but also some times us MS Outlook. When I first noticed the unauthorized activity I changed my password. But to my surprise the same thing happened again and mail had been sent again to all of my contacts. I again changed my password and accessed email on phone and computer and restricted mail to my in box to only those in my contact list. Within a short time it happened again. This time I strongly suspected an issue with my phone as the weak link. I again changed my password, to a rather strong one and deleted the email completely from my phone. My computer began to respond differently than normal, when I started it up two days ago I was prompted to enter my wireless router's password; and did not do so, strongly suspect of this request, I rebooted in in safe mode.

I have desktop that is less than 2 years old and it is having two problems:

First, if I step away from the computer for a few minutes and come back to the computer, the screen is black and none of the keys will wake up the monitor. Also, I am unable to turn off the tower, even when holding down the button for 10 seconds. The only way to turn it off is to unplug the tower. When I plug it back in, I get everything back on the screen just like it was before I walked away.

The other problem is that the system clock will not keep time. This just happened a week or so ago. Whenever I manually update the sync, it resets, but won't keep time for long.

From reading other posts on this forum, it seems that the CMOS battery may be an issue. Since the computer isn't that old and isn't used constantly, does that still seem reasonable? Is that normally covered under a warranty? I have never had a problem with other computers.

Today I woke up and went to use the internet. No bueno. It didn't work. Now what I found odd was that other devices connected to my router still worked (xbox 360). I fidgetted around with a few things and eventually connected my pc directly to my modem and am still getting the same problem. No internet connection for my pc. When I troubleshoot this is what I get "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource ( is not responding." I tried multiple things and nothing worked. Unplugging my modem and plugging it back in causes the internet to work for roughly 2-3 minutes and then it dies out again. I've googled around (very frustrating because I need to reboot my modem every 2-3 minutes lol) and have not found a fix. I tried updating drivers for my network card. Not fixed. I tried changing my DNS servers and it didn't work. I talked to my ISP (comcast) and explained the problem. I was told well the modem is working correctly it's not our end so we cannot help you. I've been sitting in my computer chair for roughly 6 hours now trying to figure out what is going on, but cannot find anything. Another thing to note after restarting the modem I get the error ""Local Area Connection" does not have a valid ip configuration". It fixes this problem and then the internet works for 2-3 minutes and I have to repeat the process.

I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right area, but none of the others seemed likely either. There are two issues.

A week ago both of my computers were running fine, no problems at all. I left for 5 days to house sit, and upon returning, I can no longer maintain an internet connection when ripping or burning DVDs on my desktop.

Also, it was previously taking about 20 minutes to rip or burn a DVD and now it is taking over an hour for each one.

I am on a dial-up connection- my only other option is satellite and I can't afford it.

I use DVD Fab for ripping and Roxio for burning.

No one had access to my desktop computer while I was gone, and it was not connected to the internet during that time.

As long as I am not doing anything resource intensive I have no problems maintaining a connection. Could it be my DVD drive is going out?

The second is with my laptop- I took it with me while I was house sitting, and was using the high speed internet at their house while I was there. Upon returning home, when I connect to the internet, I get the following message within 30 seconds of connecting- "Link to (connection name) lost." and the connection is broken.

Any ideas on either of these issues?

A:win2k pro computer loses network connection

if you are getting a IP then the DHCP server on the router is not assigning an IP address to that computer. Check the router and see if maybe you are only allowing for one less computer than you have connected to your router. That could be the cause. By any chance when you tried the same cable on another computer, was that cable on the same router port that this cable is on? Maybe its a bad port

I have had a Xp based network for years with no problems. Remote desktop connection to a shared computer. The same shared computer would have various drives that were shared and I could map network drives from it or remote desktop to it without issues.
I recently upgraded my office laptop to a newer computer and it is running windows 7 Pro.
Upgraded the shared computer( named Grunt) with shared drives to windows 7 at the same time.
Ever since changing my computers to Windows 7 I have a problem that has been reoccurring.
The Grunt will disappear from the network, the mapped drives will stop working(in the middle of streaming or copying a file) or/and the remote desktop connection will disconnect.
Very frustrating.
All computers same workgroup.
Windows 7 computers same homegroup
Looked online and saw that other people have had similar issues for years.
Some fixes on the internet said to edit the registry
Problem is I have no HKLM section in MY registry...
What can I do to fix this problem?

I'm currently using a Lenovo V360 and my issue is that my computer, which connects via wi-fi, disconnects from the network randomly. The network will be completely removed from the list of available networks. The other networks available will still be visible. I tried turning off the wi-fi button on my laptop and turning it back on, but the list of available networks still does not include the network I was recently connected to. The only way to see the network on my Lenovo is to restart the computer. The connection works perfectly after I restart. It is definitely not the network's problem because I am still connected to the same network with my other laptop.

If necessary, my laptop runs Windows 7, my router is a D-Link, and the encryption is WPA.

Hi there,

I have 2 computers (+ a laptop sometimes). Both computers are ethernet hard wired to a belkin wireless router & the laptop uses 'wireless' connection.

Both computers often remain on for hours; the main one (with the router installed on it) will very often fail to connect to the internet via explorer, O/E or even any updater (avg etc.) after being on for several hours. A reboot cures the problem.

However, the other computer never loses its connection. (Nor does the laptop). All run the XP o.s.

All suggestions for a cure gratefully accepted please.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Hi, I'm new to these forums so I hope I do this right. I recently built a new computer with pretty standard parts (Asus P4P800E mobo, P4 3.2E) and everything has been going smoothly. I was able to install Windows XP Pro onto it, and even install some other programs like messengers and virus protection. One day after I restarted it though, I lost my connection to the internet and was unable to connect. I connect through a linksys router, and I know it's my ISP because I'm still able to connect with other computers in the network. The only way I'm able to restore my internet is to use the system restore option and set it back a few checkpoints before I lost the connection. It's really become a hassle because it's sporadic on when it'll drop the connection. I went a few days installing the rest of my programs and restarting with no problem, and then all of a sudden it would drop the connection, I'd have to restore, and start over again. This probably has something to do with changes to the settings, but I have no idea what it could be. If you need any more info, let me know, and thanks in advance!

My parents got a strange phone call yesterday.  Their computer has been down for over a week, from what we thought was a dead battery (new one arrived from Amazon yesterday coincidentally).  My mother said the call went something like this.  "Hello, this is so-and-so from [garbled].  We noticed you haven't been using your computer in over a week.  Are you having trouble?  Yes, the batter is dead.  No it's not, it should be fixed now.  Go ahead and turn on your computer and it should be fixed.  Who is this?  -hangup."  Of course they turned it on and it started working on what we thought was a dead battery!  Only thing is the browser loaded to something about:
Anyways, what in the world???  How would someone know that her computer was down for a week and why would they call.  I've been in tech for a while, but this one takes the cake.  Any ideas/experiences/suggestions?  Thanks.  

A:Phone call to turn on computer

I've never heard of a phone call like that, but there are similar ones with people pretending to be Microsoft Technicians.  They get you to download a teamviewer app and then do a bunch of service work on the computer but afterwards, they tell you that unless you pay them a certain amount of money (I've heard a lot of different amounts) that you're computer will be locked out until you pay.  The last thing they do is put encrypted Syskey on the system to lock you out very successfully.  On WinXP I've had luck performing a manual system restore but on WinVista/7 that's not been successful and it's usually always resulted in having to reinstall Windows.

Wireless internet picks up signal great, and as long as it's not plugged into the wall to charge wireless works fine, but once you plug it up to charge it'll take anywhere from 5-20 minutes and it'll lose connection.

Unfortunately, despite my best efforts to find a better alternative, where I live my only option for unlimited internet with any speed whatsoever is to tether my DROID DNA phone to my computer using the app PdaNet. I've been doing this for over a year now without any problems. I have an unlimited data plan through Verizon and although I only have 3G at my house, it is still far better than anything else I've found.

Recently I started playing the online game World of Warcraft. Obviously the speed isn't ideal, but it worked perfectly fine for about 3 weeks. One night the game started to get really slow and after a minute or two would freeze up entirely. When this happened, I would have an error message on my phone at the PdaNet screen that read "Communication with client has been broken." Despite restarting things, this continued to happen. I assumed that it was because the weather was bad outside, but the problem didn't go away the next day. When I noticed that my internet speed when browsing the web had slowed down as well I figured that although I supposedly have unlimited data, that Verizon must have slowed me down for crossing over a certain download barrier. I've heard that they do this.

So this went on for the next week until the first of the month when my data was reset through Verizon. Well I'm still having the same issue when trying to play the game. It will work alright for anywhere from 30 seconds to 10 minutes, and then al... Read more

A:How can I set my Android phone to appear as network folder

As far as I know there is no way to enable SMB Share on Android without downloading some software to the phone, There are quite a few file managers that have the option to enable file sharing with almost any OS.
The way I do it on my phone is with a program called AirDroid there is a free and paid version, I use the free version and as far as I know it is not capable of SMB share, you connect to it from a web browser.
There are other option's, you could run a FTP,HTTP server but I'm not sure if it would work since Android is based on Linux and with Linux any port below 1024 requires root.
Now that I think about it SMB requires ports below 1024 (port 445), so any solution you come up with will require that you can change the default port to something like 8080 which is a default port for many Linux OS's to start a service without root.

For me IE hasn't actually frozen, its just taking a while to load up the page and task manager flags it as not responding, if you ignore it for 30 seconds or so it comes back to life (clicking in IE when in not responding does kill it though)

I know I sound crazy but I am starting to miss Itunes. I had my MP3 folder with a batch of copied stuff from my main archive. It was organized for Windows. Most of the time Itunes was easy to use in that I droped the folder into it and made it my default folder so I could delete stuff from the MP3 folder via itunes it processed it and bam working very few issues. I never got duplicate playlist had some improperly removed mp3 files which stuck in itunes.

Right now I am having so many issues updating my mp3's and playlists and with duplicate playlists, empty playlists its driving me nuts. How do you manage and sync songs for android without a ton of issues? I was jsut copying the folder over but the dump way android handles files I can not use my windows sync programs. I got tired of it screwing things up so I tried winamp and it just had to sort everything in a horrible incoherent manner(album/artist folders ,ect) and that did not fix any of my issues. Out of the few players I like I like Shuffle and Rocket player but as far as I understand it they don't control anything they just play. Right now I have 50GB of mp3's on my micro sd card and its reporting 80k music files.... its nonsense....

I am just so lost.

A:Best way to sync mp3 folder to an android phone?

Hi. Calm down! I guess you just changed from iPhone to Android phone not long ago? Once you plug in your Android, you should see a portable device folder where you can manage all the files in your Android. If this doesn't work, there are also many desktop syncing programs just like iTunes, such as iTools, Apowersoft Phone Manager, MobileGo, etc. However, personally, I would recommend you to use wireless apps like AirMore for managing Android files on web or Pushbullet for transferring files in a fast way.

Hi there.

I am currently studying the possibility of getting a Windows Phone 8 smartphone. As someone who owned Android phones for 4 years my criteria (and standards) for getting a phone are build quality, camera quality, battery life, customizations, multitasking, music and audio quality & performance.

I have heard about the Nokia Pro Camera with it's pseudo burst mode option but does WP8 has that very quick shutter button with zero lag when taking shots much like the iPhone 5 & Galaxy S3?

I have some images that I have done in CorelDraw 11 that I wish to transfer to my Android phone (HTC Sensation) so that I can view them on the phone. Does anyone have any suggestion as to how I go about this please. Will I have to save the picture in a different format or is their something that allows me to view cdr files in Android?


A:Saving CorelDraw11 file to Android phone

You'll need to save them in a standard format like JPG in a reasonable size to fit on SD card in your phone. Then connect the phone to the computer and copy them over.

I'm trying to cast from my android phone to my windows 10 pc.
I've found a number of articles that say that the windows "anniversary" update installed an app called "connect" which will do this.
Now my last update was 1 Oct 2016. When i ran the Anniversary updated it did nothing. So i guess it's because all my updates are later.
However, i do not have the connect app.
How can I ;
a) either install the aniversay update
b) get the Connect app
c) cast my android another way that doesn't involve 3rd party add ons etc etc.

Hi All,

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 8.1 connected to the internet through a mobile broadband connection. I am trying to share this connection with my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy Pocket) by creating a Wi-Fi hotspot but nothing I do seems to work.

Here?s the problem: I can create the Wi-Fi hotspot and connect to it on my phone but there is no internet connectivity; i.e. my phone says it?s connected but every time I try to browse the internet or use anything on my phone that requires internet connection it fails to load. Internet works fine (perfectly up to speed) on my laptop.

The problem is not my phone; it connects fine to other Wi-Fi networks e.g. Wi-Fi routers etc. It is as if my computer is only sharing a very slow internet connection.

I have tried using the built in sharing option (i.e. PC settings>Network>Connections>MTN-SA>Share this connection), desktop programs such as Connectify or MyPublicWifi (which stop my computer from connecting to mobile broadband at all), and command prompt (netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=NetworkName key=MyPassword) but they all have the same problem that I described earlier.

If anyone has any ideas I would be grateful to hear them!

William Dry.

Hello @sdvann, I understand that your computer running Windows 7 is no longer recognising your Android phone when you plug it in. I am going to recommend that you follow the step set out in the HP Support document: Using Microsoft System Restore (Windows 7), which you can use to restore your computer back to a point in time when your Android phone was detected by your computer. This will reverse any settings or updates that may have caused this issue. Please feel free to re-post if you require further assistance. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums. Have a great day!

I'm not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but Cortana on my Android phone is sending multiple notifications of text messages, missed calls, etc. to my Windows 10 machine. As few as two to as much as five of a repeat notifications will be received by my machine.

I've been doing the usual Google searches to rectify this issue and, to no avail, the feature must be too new for this issue to arise. I suspect it is because I've reinstalled Cortana at least twice, so she must have some sort of repeated setting per each received notification, and therefore pushes the notification per each log that I've asked for mirrored notifications to my Windows 10 machine.

I'm finding the toasts to pop up five times every text message to get really annoying, to the point where I need to activate Quiet Hours on the Action Center. I don't really want to do this, as it is counter-intuitive to productivity. If anyone has a solution to this, please share for all of us. Thank you.

hi, i have a datacard with unlimited plan but it does not have a wifi capability.
basically i want to connect my gionee s7 5.0 to it.
i've been surfing the net for the past few days.
i came upon the following options:

1. i'm ready to buy a wireless router(Tenda TE-N3 N150 Easy Setup Router is my choice) but my doubt is that whether it will be able to create a wifi network using the network from my datacard through my pc(winxp).

2.using wireless adapter:by using softwares to make it function like a router.but i don't know how much reliable this method even the posters recommend to go for a router.

3.Reverse tethering my phone: but for it all the sites say the phone must be rooted. And i'm not able to root my phone in any this choice is out.Reply to this choice if there's any way to reverse tether without rooting.

most of all i want to spend the least and be sure it'll work.

pls help and tnx.

Hi all, my mum received an email yesterday which said
New Voicemail
(The Listen is a button) So she was on her Android S3 phone and opened it, she later emailed her sister who got the same thing in that email, but her sister deleted it. And another email in her inbox came up with the same message.
What's strange is the other email that it showed up on only showed up when she opened it on the phone, when opening that email on the laptop it opened normally, and is from a trusted sender.
I have changed her Hotmail password (Although it took several hours to lock her out on the phone and request the new password), and I done a AVG virus scan on the laptop (although she had not opened the link on the laptop)
If anyone can tell me if her emails are safe now? I'm rather confused that the same email showed up with the WhatApp scam/virus on her phone but not on her PC.

A android phone needs to be urgently connected to my Neat gear WGR614v7 router.
​After putting WPA2 password in the wi-fi section of the phone, the phones wi-fi continually tries to connect to the router. Some times the phone gets connected to the router.
But there are frequent outages at my place. So after an outage the phone again gets disconnected. Even if the signal strength is strong it keeps on saying checking network status, connecting and then disconnected and starts all over again. The phone then never seems to connect again to the router.
The Net gear router hardware version is V7 and the firmware version is V2.0.30_2.0.30.
Please give a solution as soon as possible.

Thank You.

Hi there

W10 only seems to see the internal data storage of an S5 phone (Samsung) just updated to Android V6 - and can't see the micro sd card (32GB).

Worked perfectly with Android 5.0 -- moral -- don't automatically let your phone update Android -- seems Android 6 is a bit slower too --phone takes longer to start up.

--added tried on Linux-- phone works fine - both micro SD card and internal phone storage seen as separate "Disks".

On Windows I tried both USB2 and USB 3 connections (S5 has the "double" Usb 3 type connector but you can also use a "bog standard" usb 2 connector. Didn't make any difference - micro SD card not seen.

On the phone menu I ensured MTP option was selected --there's also an option for USB 3 (faster) transfer --both worked on Linux - only the internal phone storage was seen on Windows - no micro sd card.

I have an older S3 samsung phone - used as a test --don't use it as a phone any more as it doesn't support 4G. This had Android 5 on it and that worked fine -- so not sure if it's android or Windows !!. but in either case I'd like a fix --the S5 is stil a very popular phone and with external removable micro sd card very useful too. S7 also good but don't need that yet and it's almost as much as a used car to buy !!! -- Samsung S6 though avoid. !!!!

I have been using Windows 10 Ad Hoc network (netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=wifi key=111111111111)
(netsh wlan start hostednetwork) for a few months with no problems at all, but suddenly it has stopped working. I cannot longer connect to it with my android phone. I can see both networks with internet access in networks and sharing centre. Yes, I enabled sharing on the first network in network properties. No success. Tried reinstalling system. Again, no success. Tried Baidu hot spot, OTtoto Hot spot, Connectify with no success. My phone detects such created network but, cannot connect to it. Somethimes, when traying to enable sharing on first network I am getting a message: When Internet Connection Sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set
to use IP address Your computer may lose connectivity with
other computers on your network. If these other computers have static IP
addresses, you should set them to obtain their IP addresses automatically.
Are you sure you want to enable Internet Connection Sharing? Any help, please.

Hello, guys there! My Samsung Galaxy S4 android cell phone was formatted by my boy friend and many of my messages, contacts, videos, pictures and some documents were lost after that format. However, many of these files were not uploaded to my computer partition yet. Do you have any recommendation to recover deleted files from android phone? Honestly, I did have searched over the internet and found many deleted file recovery software. But, I was not familiar with such tools and also afraid to make thing worse. Do you have any idea? Is there any free one? Or is there anything else I can do to fix everything? Thank you very much!

I've got wireless internet which I access on two laptops and an ipod touch.

Recently, on the ipod touch I have been able to browse for a while then the internet stops loading pages. It shows I am still connected but I have to turn off the WIFI and then turn it back on again and reconnect and everything is ok for a while.

Now it is starting to happen on one of the Windows XP Home laptops.

I browse for a while, then pages stop loading. I am still connected. If I turn the WIFI adapter on the laptop off then on again and reconnect I can surf for a while.

During the period I cannot surf on the laptop I can on the ipod so there is a live connection beyond the router.

Any ideas?
