Setting up wifi with ethernet (wifi used to work properly)


I use the WRT54G2 with my modem cable (from Optimum Online) for a long time, like a wifi router. Several devices (laptops, ipads, iphones, etc.) bound to it, WPA2 security, everything is good.

Now I need to have a laptop connected via an ethernet connection - to make things a bit more complicated, the ethernet cable is actually passed through a phone, Polycom IP from the router on my laptop. It works fine, I have internet on the phone and the laptop. However, my wifi disappears now other devices.

I assume that the ethernet is supported when the cable is connected, so when I disconnect wifi back upward.

How can I implement both work at the same time in different devices?

Any help is appreciated


Don't know if I can delete the post, but now I just solved my problem. Changed channel 6 to 11 and all wifi works.

  • Satellite L670 - after Win 8 upgrade WIFI does not work properly

    Afteer upgrade to Win 8, the WiFi of my Satellite L670-128 has stopped working properly.

    The connection only works some time, usually only a few seconds before the connection is lost.
    After a few seconds or minutes the connection is restored, just soon to be lost again.

    Cannot download large files or even to see larger photos on normal web pages. Is there any Win8 driver for Broadcom coming 802.11n network card, or should I throw one 2.5 year old computer in the trash?

    Buy a usb-wlan card is not an option, as wireless mice is already "permanently" reserving one of the three usb ports and wlan card it would be just to the left...

    To my knowledge this L670 series isn t Win 8 taken in charge and this means that there is no special Win 8 drivers for this device, so I put t think you will find an another Win 8 driver for this WLan card.

    But do you really want to throw this laptop in the trash just because the wifi does not work properly running Win 8?
    The device was working properly under Win 7?

    I would recommend running a few Wlan test.
    For example; Disable wireless encryption on your router and Wifi connectivity with the open network do that just for testing purposes, perhaps you will need to change the type of encryption to test.

    need to run windows in safe mode with network to have browserws working properly. using IE and Firefox. Web site fisting comes in following correctly sites just waiting for the website tab help

    If it works in Windows safe mode, then you have a problem with other software, maybe a security software or a system driver that runs on your computer.

    It is possible that your security (firewall, antivirus) software blocks or limit Firefox or the process of plugin-container without you inform, possibly after the detection of changes (update) for the Firefox program.

    Delete all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container in the permissions list in the firewall and leave your firewall again ask permission to get full unlimited access to the internet for Firefox and the plugin-container and the update process.


  • says I have emails, but not down load them - used to work properly

    says I have emails, but not down load them - used to work properly.

    For an example says that there download 1 / 6 after awhile, he says no new messages. I can check my email from another source and see that I have 6 messages and am able to read them. I ran scan programs and malware and clear up all the problems, they found that Thunderbird is not download again. I'm on the latest version 31.6.0

    This is probably one of these programs of malware or anti virus which is at the origin of the problem. Disable the e-mail in your anti virus and restart your computer. Best? What anti virus is it anyway?

  • Ethernet is not compatible with Windows Vista, used to work, now no.

    A problem with your wireless network card

    Your wireless card has stopped working properly, because a compatible driver is not available for this version of Windows.

  • Peripheral storage but not with ethernet connection USB port work

    I usually connect my Mac Book Pro with ethernet using the USB port. It was working fine, but since a few weeks, it has stopped working. But the normal usb storage devices only works very well in this port. So, I tried to connect the ethernet to another USB port near the seizure of power, which seems to work very well. So, that means that the other USB port does not work properly. How can I fix? I use Mac Book Pro with the Version OS X El Capitan 10.11.4

    Try resetting the SMC reset management system (SCM) controller on your Mac - Apple Support

    Shouldn't use you a crush on Ethernet card instead of a USB adapter to Ethernet?

  • I have been experiancing crashes to the desktop when running The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion even though he used to work properly on my computer

    I am experiancing crashes to desktop when I try to click on the main menu of the game oblivion. I've had the game for a long time and it worked when I tried it (about a year). But now it crashes whenever I click on something in the main menu. I don't remember any specific major changes that have been made to the computer, because it stopped working because I haven't used the game in more than a year, but I tried several methods of attachment:
    I scanned the folder with oblivion.
    I defragment the hard drive.
    I deleted the temporary (more) files.
    I tried running it in both safe mode and clean the boot it. (Safe mode worked for consolidated first half an hour when it also crashed)

    My computer has been working with the program in the past, so I think that my computer should be able to run again:
    Windows Vista: ultimate
    Model: Inspiron 53OS
    Processor: Intel (r) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU @2. 33 GHz
    Memory (RAM): 4.00 GB
    ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro

    You have any ideas on what I can do to fix this?

  • Computer laptop everything suddenly does not "see" my wireless router, use to work properly

    I have a HP laptop and it has implemented a wireless network a wireless d-Link N router.  Everything worked well for about 3 months.  Now, he can not connect.  Running the troubleshooting application to choose a connection - all my neighbors show up, but not that of my house.  The router is also new (he and laptop were Christmas gifts).   It used to work fine with Windows 7 one and now nothing...  I can't it appears in the list of wireless connections.
    My laptop 5 years running XP is in line with this router and it works fine - so I don't think that it is the router that is the problem.
    Thank you!

    Hello Bchek,

    Thank you for your message.  Check with your D-Link documentation and settings to make sure that the SSID broadcast has not been disabled.  This would prevent you from being able to see the wireless network.  Please let us know if it did or did not help to solve your problem.
    See you soon

  • Satellite L40 - Wifi does not work properly

    Hi, when I want to connect my L40 to some network close to home, don't go or Walker it connects, it is said that my access is limited don't work or are in need of a network address, something like that... is the problem with my laptop, or something else?


    First of all, you should check if the WiFi signal is strong enough.
    I guess you want to connect to that you have the router WLan ;)

    However, more you must update the WLan, then BIOS card driver if they are available.

    Please post your results!

    I can no longer view attachments in my Yahoo email account, since I upgraded to Firefox 8. The only option is to download all attachments. There used miniatures at the end of the email to view them without having to download. I checked my email in Internet Explorer and it's the proper functioning and the thumbnail display.

    OK, now, they show. I restarted my computer again and they are showing now.

  • Satellite Pro P300-1FQ - wifi does not work properly

    Win Xp installed, the wireless guard stop and start.
    I've read the threads and I need to make a Bios Update.
    Click on the link to download it, but get a blank page.

    Is there another place I can get it?

    First of all, I would like to try other workarounds first before trying to update the BIOS.

    I recommend updating the driver WLan first!
    The laptop seems to be to use the Atheros WLan card.
    You can download the driver Atheros here:

    In addition, you must turn off the WLan to save energy.
    This can be done in power management Win 7!

    Then go to Device Manager-> card WLan-> properties-> Advanced tab
    Here, you can check the different settings and change is necessary.

    Last but not least the BIOS can be downloaded from page European driver Toshiba and download functions because I could download the latest version of the BIOS

  • LaserJet 100 color MFP M175nw: Laserjet 100 color MFP M175nw will not connect wireless - used to work properly

    OK - I'm out of here.

    I've owned a Laserjet 100 color MFP M175nw for awhile, and it worked perfectly.

    Installed the software for 2 computers at home and everything worked well.

    Last week, I changed the password to my router for the home network.

    The printer showed as "offline".  I couldn't change the status.

    After much trying I totally uninstalled the software, deleted the printers on my PC and reinstalled.

    I run the installer - tell him I want to go and so that it can detect my wireless network settings.  (I also tried the option where I have to enter the information manually). All else fails.

    Setup starts and then asks me to install the USB cable.  I do that and the installation program is going very slowly (I mean it crawls along) and wrote "Product has been detected", "Waiting for installation of the product at the end. Then I get a big red 'X' and it is said that it took too long to run and a fatal error occurrred or he tells me that it cannot find a product to install.  If I run the installer and say USB only, it works very well.  Ugh.

    When I press the button on the front panel wireless and it flashes only and that's all.

    Here's what I did - full power / turn off the PC and the router.  Updated the firmware of the printer used the new installer (all from the HP website).  Tried it on 2 different PC to ensure that it was not isolated.

    The USB cable is good because after the failure, I can print via USB (I lost a forest to print the test pages).  Same PC and OS for both when I bought the printer.

    Ironically, I spent several years in this DOCUMENT, so it's not familiar works for me, just very frustrating!

    Well, I finally had it - realized that the WIFI adapter on the PC had to have the new password entered.

    It was step 1.  Step 2 followed another post where I attached the printer directly via ethernet to the router cable, and once the IP address appears in the menu of the printer, I entered on my browser and the name of the router is entered, pw and managed to turn off the wireless printer on.  Then, by running the installer worked like a charm.  Woo-Hoo

  • In Cp4, recording with typing screens do not work properly

    In Cp4, I record a screen where I click in a text box and type a name.  I click in a second text box and type a last name.  When I run the demo he does not type anything.  Sometimes, when I click on another button, the word I typed suddenly appears.  But it does not show me type it.

    When I start recording even in training, I don't see the legends that say "click here and type Jane."

    In the demo, I thought it was supposed to record what I typed the student could watch the typing as it happened.  And then, in the training file, she allowed the student to click in the text box, showed a caption that says "type of Jane" and allowed the student to type in the text box.

    Is there a setting I'm missing or something?

    Thank you.


    Without doubt, double-check your settings before saving.

    In particular, click on Edit > Preferences > recording > settings.

    This area covers the strikes. Once you check that, click or modes and select the assessment Simulation mode. If you want captions on the instructional text to add, you need to enable this option.

    Once you make these changes, you will need to re - register the sequence. Of course, it is possible, even with the options enabled, you will not see the added objects. If they are added is dependent on Captivate understand how to work with what application you save. On the side of it, you are always free to add typing and captions, once finished recording.

    See you soon... Rick

    Looks like you may have a virus or other malware. Get your updated antivirus program and boot into Safe Mode. Note that some viruses can hide from your normal antivirus program, so you really need to scan in Safe Mode. To enter in Safe Mode when you turn on first, press F8 on every seconds until you get the menu, and then select Safe Mode. Then run a complete system scan.

    Microsoft has suggestions and offerings to

    Moderator Forum Keith has a few suggestions along this line to

    If that suits him fine. If this is not the case, use system restore to go back to an earlier date at the beginning of the problem. To run system restore, click Start-> programs-> Accessories-> System Tools-> system restore. Click on the box that says show more restore points.

    You can check the corrupted system files. Open an administrator command prompt and run SFC if the above does not help. Click START, and then type sfc in the search box, right-click to SFC. EXE and click run as administrator. Then, from the command prompt type sfc/scannow.

    Finally if all else fails, you can look at the rather cryptic system event log. To make, click Start-> Control Panel-> administration-> event viewer tools. Once in Event Viewer system log-click and scroll entries looking for these "error" with indicator see if you can find guidance on where the problem may be.


    I hope this helps. Good luck.
