I just obtained a HiRO H50069 Wireless adapter, and installed it on my Windows 98 SE machine. I installed the driver and utility, and the device works fine after a reboot, and I am able to connect to the internet. However, if I reboot after having the adapter work, I get a BSOD on the next boot, and every subsequent boot after that results in an endless splash screen and it never gets to the desktop. The only way for me to fix this is to go into safe mode and remove the device from Device Manager. If I reinstall the driver, the same thing happens. Machine works fine for one boot, then BSOD, then no desktop. How can I troubleshoot this?
Working with Windows 8.1 and using a USB Verizon 4G LTE Modem as a Windows Broadband device on a mobile asset, and when signal is very low for a period of time the modem will "disconnect" from the VZ network and will not auto connect once the signal gets stronger. The end users are finding this to be inconvenient for them that the modem doesn't auto connect. I'd rather have them keep their eyes on the road then checking the connection. I have researched this on the Verizon site and the internet for answers to remedy this, without success. Is there a registry key or a setting that I might be over looking that will cause the connection to keep trying until it connects? To write a script for the Windows Broadband to check the connection state, signal strength, and reestablish connection that will run under a non-admin account would be great, but to be honest I don't know where to begin to make script for that, found no examples during my search. Does anyone have any ideas, suggestion? Jon
If you want to use Wi-Fi on Windows 2000, you have to use the configurator that comes bundled with your driver, like Intel PRO/Set for example. Trouble is, these configurators aren't always great, and seem to overcomplicate simple things, like having the system connected to its appropriate network by the time it reaches the logon screen at startup. I would like to be able to use the Wireless Zero configurator from Windows XP on Windows 2000. I'm not really sure where to start, but I think at least two services (Wireless Zero Configuration and NDIS Usermode I/O Protocol) need to be installed on Windows 2000 and probably some system files too. Has anyone else tried this before? A Google search didn't return anything related.
So I'm having this issue with the UniFi controller software, I'd like to be able to login and see the status of my access point and upgrade it too, but I can never do that because each time I restart my computer, the software gets removed for some reason. I don't know what is going on. All settings are still on my computer and the AP continues to work just fine, I just can't manage it. There is a folder in the application menu, but all what is there is "Uninstall UniFi"..there was several items there before I restarted Windows and now its just that. Someone told me that it has something to do with Java and 64 Bit..but not sure what has to do with it. Running Windows 7 64 Bit. Hopefully I can get this problem fixed.
My friend had a visitor and she was able to link her smartphone to the wireless network. Now he is worried she could read his email and his files. Only the landlord has control of the modem. Can he do anything besides a Firewall?
