Receiving more packets than sending in Vista Home

Hello, I am helping someone out.

This person has a Gateway Notebook with Vista Home.

I have been at this for 3 hours now.
___________________________

She is using the wifi system in my building with no security. Her firewall isn't on also. The Wireless Network Connection looks correct.


Problem

Activity: Sent - 4,858 & Received 15,689.

Her connection has IPv4 and Ipv6. I disabled IPv6.


This is an cmd: ipconfig/all read-out. I really need help. Thanks

More about receiving packets sending vista home
  1. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    What is you question?.

    You will always receive more packets that the packets that you send.
  2. Thank you for responding back. I wish more folks can. I want to give this person back their Notebook... This person doesn't understand the time and my afford, as well as to take more time out and reach out to folks like you all online.


    What happen, this person's Norton subscription ran out, so I installed AVG Interest Security. I do not recall whether I had an active web site beforehand. I system restored back to before I installed, but still nothing. This makes me think, has this new Gateway been online....


    After I installed AVG, the net would not work, regardless if I was connected to any Hotspot-wireless.


    This person was using a router, but I connected to my building's free wifi instead.

    ___________

    Everything checks out as for as the 'Wireless Connection' on Vista Home.

    The only thing I cannot figure out is why "Activity is receiving much more than it's sending".

    I receive the typical 'this page cannot be displayed" in IE. and Firefox "connection interrupted".

    The IP address doesn't seem like it's been assigned by the Wireless Adapter.

    I don't know what to do. Please help.


    The information I pasted was from 'ipconfig/all'.
  3. Check the wireless configuration, the IP address must be configured as DHCP and not as manually.
  4. Thanks.

    I am looking at Network connections and it tells me:

    DHCP is Enabled
    IPV4 Address is 192.168.89.40
    IPV4 subnet is 255.2555.255.0
    IPV4 Gateway is 192.168.89.1


    I will check on your advice now.
  5. IPV4: Obtain an IP address / DNS server automatically is checked
    IPV6: The same is checked

  8. Like I see, you have a problem with th VLAN4, this "request timed out" can be the source of the problem.

    Change the laptop of VLAN and try again, also check the configuration of the VLAN4
  9. I am good, but this matter is beyond my knowledge, but I am learning from you Sir.

    How do I go about changing the VLAN?
  10. I am good, but this matter is beyond my knowledge, but I am learning from you Sir.

  11. ^Change the laptop of place.
  12. Netlogon cannot start, in services.

    I'm still lost but Ill think about "change the laptop of place"
  13. I guess no one can fully help.
  14. I do not know how to get to "VLAN4" to change anything. If you could provide steps, I can then change it. I google.com but with little luck.
  15. Hi again, sorry for not a quickly response. I mean that you need move the laptop to another place of your company.

    Actually over the network, the sent packets sometimes get FRAGMENTED. that is why, received number of packets is more than number of sent packets.. This is the normal and correct condition of a network connection
