Hello,

So I'm having no internet on an old XP desktop I bought at a garage sale. It is Gateway MFATXPNT YKT 500x, 2.4 Ghz and 1.0 GB RAM, Yorktown Motherboard.

I have been working on getting it up and running since June, wiped it clean and installed a new copy of XP. People at PChelforum gave me lots of help but internet remains unsolved. Here is the thread:

http://www.pchelpforum.com/xf/threads/want-help-cleaning-pc-bought-at-garage-sale.153083/

At first my usb wireless adapter worked very occasionally. We tried setting up Google DNS, doing some other changes to internet settings (see second page of the thread.) I swapped the adapter out a couple times and finally change to a PCI adapter (Wireless N150 ENLWI - N3 Encore Electronics.) Now it doesn't work at all, even though it can see and connect to the wireless network and the connection is "very good."

Also I have a laptop which connects mostly fine, although the connection periodically dies and I have to unplug the adapter then plug it back in.

I have spent fair amount of time looking for ideas on Google but no luck, so I'm coming here.

I wanted to attach a minitoolbox log and hwinfo log but can't figure out how.

:welcome: to Bleeping Computer Community!

 

Are there any computers on wireless that does not disconnects from your home network? How many are connecting to your modem/router and what brand/model is it? Please post also your bandwith speed.

Hi there!

I have two roommates both of whom use laptops with wireless. I think one is a PC and the other is a Mac. They seem to have occasional disconnects but not bad enough where they seem to have a problem. I will ask them for more detailed info.

 

It's a Centurylink combined modem/router C1000A. Usually only two of us are online at any given time. Maybe three computers occasionally.

 

When downloading I max out at about 1 MB/second, usually it's lower than that. We are trying to save money so I'm guessing we're on the lowest speed plan which is advertised 1.5 Mbps. I logged into my C-link account but of course it doesn't tell me which plan it just says "high-speed internet."

 

Thanks!

Try speedtest.net as it would approximately tell you about your speed connection. See also https://qwest.centurylink.com/internethelp/wireless-troubleshooting.html

Try disabling your wifi security, antivirus and see if it connects from there. Use another PCI slot for the network card if available.

Wow, I'm getting 10.25 Mbps download, 0.76 Mbps Up (ping 39 ms)

This is confusing to me, especially since the results page says my connection is D+ with 65% of people in US having better connection. 10.25 seems like a lot to me? Also, I thought we had the cheapest plan which should be only 1.5 Mbps?

I disabled security on the router and turned off all of Avast's shields.

I browsed through the CenturyLink troubleshooter. Changing channels and power settings seemed unlikely to work, and my roommate is using web so don't want to mess with it too much right now. The thing that seemed promising was "removing saved networks," so I followed those instructions.

After trying all of this my connection is still shot.

I can try a new PCI slot, but I'm wondering if this will help. My computer can see our home wireless network, and windows can connect to it, supposedly, but it seems to be dead when I try to browse the web or even ping the modem from command line. My assumption is that the card is connected properly but some sort of software glitch in either the router or Windows is creating the problem. Otherwise, how could it see the network name and then go through the motions of connecting to it?

That three computers in the house and now one tablet my mom gave me can connect to the internet indicates to me that the trouble is with Windows on the PC. Hopeful signs are that the Desktop did connect successfully to the web a few times via the USB adapter I originally bought. Also, I set up an ad-hoc wireless connection between my laptop and Desktop in order to transfer 17 gigs of personal files. This took about 8 hours but was successful.

Thanks for the help.

Are the correct drivers for PCI card installed?

Download MiniToolBox and open/run the program.
When open, checkmark or select all options then click Go.
A notepad will open then copy-paste the report on your next reply

I reinstalled the drivers from the CD at least one time when the card didn't work. Here's the minitoolbox log.

It seems your Windows is not activated? Do you have a Windows XP installer disc? It is worthy of reinstalling windows just to make sure that the problem is not desktop board itself.

I reformatted since I bought PC used and it was a pain to clean up the original install. My dad loaned me an XP disk but I couldn't activate it cuz the internet wasn't working. I found a quick hack by searching online. I suppose I could try taking it downstairs and connecting through ethernet in order to activate windows.

 

I understand if you don't want to help me for legal reasons. I figure Microsoft doesn't really care about XP anymore so I didn't worry about it. I guess I assumed that the problem wasn't activation-related, because I have had a successful connection to the web, even if it was brief.

Actually, if the previous installed XP OS is of the same edition (bootable and running) with the current XP on the Gateway, the Product key should have been extracted by a third party software (SIW Home Edition or Speccy) before making a reformat/install... this way there won't be any hassle of activation.

1394 Net Adapter = 1394 Connection 3 (Connected)
802.11n Wireless LAN Card = Wireless Network Connection 6 (Connected)
Linksys LNE100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter(LNE100TX v4) = Local Area Connection (Media disconnected)
Intel® PRO/100 VE Network Connection = Local Area Connection 3 (Media disconnected)

The 1394 Adapter can be disabled by network connections. It is not needed. 2 LAN adapters are detected and its better if one is uninstalled which is known to be working.

 

Regarding the Adhoc and let Windows manage wireless connections, see here.

This is not recommended at BC Forum, sorry.

As far as extracting serial number, is it too late for that since I already reformatted?

Yeah I noticed there are two LAN adapters which is odd. I haven't messed with them since i don't need 'em. I figured out 1394 is firewire connected to sound card and assumed it was irrelevant. You think uninstalling might help?

I set the wireless to "access point only." However, it wasn't set to ad-hoc but rather "any available network." I only changed it to ad-hoc temporarily a few months ago for the purpose of transferring my personal files from my laptop.

Still no connection.

Yeah I don't recommend it either. I was in a hurry. :-/

The most common issue on PCI bus resource with some motherboards is IRQ conflict on bandwith using devices. Since it works on USB wifi dongle on some time, then its either removing the sound card to free up the PCI wifi card from resource conflict or use a working LAN card instead.

Still no luck. I pulled the sound card. I pulled the Linksys 10/100 LAN card. And just for good measure I moved the wireless card to a different slot.

So right now the only two cards in there are wireless and video card.

Huh as I was typing this I just got "limited or no connectivity" because "network didn't assign address" to my PC. But repairing connection "worked" and of course still no web.

 

I guess I can figure out a way to get an ethernet connection going, maybe there's a way to get a router that can pick up the wireless signal from downstairs and then I could plug into that. Still, I'm stubborn-- frustrated that I can't understand why this isn't working.

What wireless PCI or adapter is being used to connect on router by wireless? Make sure that the security setting encyprtion (WPA/WPA2) matches the router and wifi card being used. Are you on Windows XP SP2 or SP3? Make sure that DHCP is enabled on router and wifi IPV4 is on auto DHCP and DNS servers.

This is XP Service Pack 3.

 

Windows tells me the connection is secured by WPA2. Visiting my router settings it says "WPA-WPA2 personal."

 

You may remember that we tried turning off security completely about a week ago and it still didn't work.

 

Checking my TCP/IP properties I am obtaining "DNS Server address automatically."

 

In my advanced TCP/IP Settings I have "DHCP Enabled."

 

Looking around in my "Wireless Network Connection Properties" I can't find any reference to IPV4. Nor can I find any way to set DHCP servers.

 

In working with the other online tech support forum, I noticed that the normally hidden non-plug and play drivers had a couple with yellow exclamation marks.

 

My Realtek EAPPkt Protocol and Scutum50 NDIS Protocol Driver. Not sure if this matters, but I noticed the EAPPkt Protocol is listed in the Wireless Network Connection Properties as well.


 I swapped the adapter out a couple times and finally change to a PCI adapter (Wireless N150 ENLWI - N3 Encore Electronics.)
