    Wifi: limited connectivity; sleep mode


    Hi chev65

    I have an Accer Iconia W510 hybrid Pc/Tablet with Windows 8. Every time I turned on from sleep mode the wifi it's with "limited connectivity".

    To solve it, I disconnect an reconnect to my wifi signal and works correctly until the Pc goes to sleep mode and the problem appears again.

    Can you help me to correct this problem, please?. I've tried the solution you gave to Gavilan 101 but didn't work. I'm attaching the screenshot of my ipconfig/all.

    Thanks

    Have you installed any third party A/V software?

    If this doesn't fix the problem please post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all from this machine and I will have a look at it.

    Hey I am having a similar issue however the above solution did not work, any suggestions?

    From the screen shot you have a valid IP with no problems showing.

    It also looks like you are using the new wireless standard 802.11ac, does your router have support for this? Have you tried updating the firmware on the router?

    Do you have a third party anti virus software installed?

    This is where i though the problem may be, however asus did say that it was backwards compatable as my wifi dongle runs of the b/g standard. It is a broadcom card, they will have the firmware?

    Cheers

    Do you have the Asus AC66U router?

    I'm a bit confused when you say the b g standard where it's showing as 802.11ac.

    Win 7 Pro 32-bit


    Chev65,

    Advance apologies for the necropost....

    I have been experiencing the same problem. Other wireless devices can come and go from the house and they reconnect to the router, but my Win 7 Pro 32-bit laptop is finicky. It is great to find this (possible) solution. I look forward to trying it.

    Just to add to the knowledge base:
    Also, I usually "hibernate" my laptop (restarting maybe once every 2-3 weeks). What I've noticed is that if I bring it out of hibernation and login immediately, it won't reconnect. However, if I let it sit for a bit waiting for me to login, when I do login I seem to connect. I recently replaced my router and that did not seem to fix it. This only happens at home, too. Not at work.

    I did a clean Win7Pro 32-bit install when I bought this laptop from a bog box store - your comment
    With upgrades sometimes winsock or the TCP/IP stack gets corrupted.
    really caught my eye...

    So.....
    A couple quick questions before I try your recommended solution: Are their any risks with this process? Will I lose any other connections or affect any other network settings? Also, is this a one time fix, or do I do this whenever it happens?

    Regardless, if this works, it will be much easier than cycling power on the router (and likely better for the router?)... thanks again for the help.

    -Jim

    It's one time fix, safe, no side affects, no risks.

    Nothing else will be affected. It's a good thing to try, no matter what. It sets the bindings on the tcp/ip network stack back to standard and removes any 3rd party stuff that may have latched on.

    Routers don't care how many times you reboot them. They're just like any other computer. Most run a stripped down version of Linux.

    Make sure you have latest driver installed. If you have a 3rd party firewall, uninstall it. Update router to latest firmware. Set beacon interval in its settings to 50 ms. Use Vistumbler free software to see which channel is most open and set your router's radio broadcast to that.
