Windows 7: Windows 7 wireless desperation...

27 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64

Could it be a possibility that my router is somehow not compatable? My router is a Netgear DG834GT but it's got custom firmware on it from Sky Broadband. I took my laptop round to my parents house last night and they have a Belkin router and it connected fine with no issues. As soon as I got home... again no internet access.

Form a Moderator at Microsoft Support (wireless signal fades out)

"Windows 7 cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers"

I have to believe that this is at the root of most of the wireless connection issues with Win 7.

Sky are sending me a new router. I wonder if this will "fix" the problem.

Oddly my girlfriend got her new laptop today, also an acer, also with the 5100 wifi card, and it connects no troubles at all. Still no new router from sky yet to try that out.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
Intel 5100 Wirless Issue Possible Solution

Hello I was reading about your problem and it look like the 5100 card is b/g/n and your router/modem is b/g

I would set the router to broadcast g band only instead of mixed which is usually default on most routers as well if in the wireless adapter advanced features see if it has the option to set it to g only as having n enabled is not necessary for your router but could be causing the connection issue you have been having this is the only thing I can think of that has not been mentioned here good luck hope this helps...
