Network problem

Q: Network problem

Hey I have no idea how this happened.

I was having internet connection problems so I goto 'network connections' in control panel, I right clicked and disabled internet, then unplugged modem and then restarted the computer.

After reboot I go back to network connections, but the page is blank. I cannot see any icons to click to re-enable the connection.

Im using another computer atm, broken one uses Windows XP Pro. Let me know if you need any more info.

I tried everything on the microsoft site that seems related to no avail. Only thing I havent tried is a driver uninstall/reinstall, because I do not have a CD or floppy that I can find for the network card which is a VIA rhine II fast ethernet adapter, not sure if it means anything but in device manager I have to show hidden devices to be able to see network devices, iI believe the network card is 'VIA Compatable Fast Ethernet Adapter - Packet Scheduler Miniport '. It says its working properly.

Also theres a bunch of other options besides the 'VIA Compatable Fast Ethernet Adapter - Packet Scheduler Miniport ', like 'Direct Parallel Port', 'WAN Miniport (IP)', 'WAN Miniport (PPOE)', etc. On this computer the network devices are not hidden and theres only 1 thing listed under network devices.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

when i try to add the drivers /install the printer on the laptop it wants me to connect the laptop to the printer...i am not sure that i want to establish this connection since my ultimate goal is wireless printing...

Hi peeps, here's a seemingly unsolvable problem I have:

I want to network my two PCs (An Acer Vista Laptop and my old HP XP Desktop) so that I can play network games (Operation Flashpoint).

So I connect them both wirelessly to the router (a cheap SWEEX one). Now when Iook on my Vista Laptop's Network place I can see the Laptop I'm using the router (and can access it's page and everything) but I can't see my XP desktop from here. And when I go into the Desktop's network places I can't see the router or either of the computers I'm using.

And I assume that this network problem is why I can't see a server in my game.

Now I understand that file and printer sharing is turned, the firewall is definately turned off and I think the appropriate services are turned on (well to make sure I turned every single service on ) There must be some more complex reason why my XP hates to network!

Although I am by no means a noob to general computing I am reasonably new to networking. Can you clever lot help me?

A:Wireless Network problem: My XP won't show the router or other PC in Network Places

So i'm having an issue connecting my desktop to my home network for file sharing. My Desktop is connected to the internet like so: Desktop ->(Ethernet cable)-> Uverse 2wire router -> Internet.

I have no issues with my internet connection, and in fact I am posting this from my desktop now. Windows Network Diagnostics finds no issues when I run the trouble shooter. and when I try to connect to a home group it refers me to the network issue.

This issue has plagued me for about 6 months now. I have talked to Uverse tech support, and many of my friends who are into computers and have gotten no answers. Computer is running windows 7 SP1 and again the router is the Uverse 2wire router

How can I make my desktop available for network sharing?

Also here is a screenshot of the network map according to this computer

A:Network Sharing Problem. Connecting Desktop to home network

Have you set up a home network? What is the workgroup name? Are there any passwords of any kind? Have you set your shared settings on each PC in the workgroup?

I have installed server 2003 on a small network and created a domain that is the same as the public domain name (ie the companies website).

This is now causing a problem because when i type in the public address (for example www.company.com) it is trying to resolve it locally - because the local domain name is also company.com.

Does anyone know if there is a way to get round this problem?

Many thanks in advance


A:problem with the local network having the same domain name as the public network

add 'local.' to the internal domain or change it altogether.

Your public domain should not have any connection into your private infrastructure,
but you may have references from private->public; not very common.

So im at a complete loss here....

I have a windows 7 pro x86 computer that out of the blue stopped connecting to its network drives. I tried a few things like flushing the dns, re-registering, new IP finally I decided to rejoin it to the domain, big mistake. The computer couldn't contact the domain controller even though all the info was correct. I ended up doing a restore to the week prior updated the NIC drivers and everything seemed to be working.

The following day it happened again I tried the same few fixes and the solution this time was to uninstall all the hidden devices under the network adapter, after a reboot I got into the drives just fine. Now everytime the user shuts his computer down he gets this same problem. My boss ran into the same problem on another machine the other day so Im hesitant to restore, I would prefer a fix in case this shows up again.

The computer can get online and use our email through outlook but network resources are all gone. The machine can also ping all of the servers but wont connect with \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx IP or \\servername\share even with credentials entered.

Ive looked all over with no success.

A:Very strange problem connecting to network drives / network.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

If it's now happening to another computer, I'd unplug the router and switch(es) for 20 to 30 seconds. Also, check on your computer's Security or Firewall programs installed, make sure that they are up to date and not blocking the ports and network resources. You may try disabling the program(s) temporarily for debugging purpose.

An update will be nice.

I have a Linksys BEFSR81 router and a Linksys WAP54G connected to it. I recently installed a Linksys Network Storage Link NSLU2 to the network with a Maxtor One Touch HD. I have been able to map the new network drive to my computer that is connected to the router, but I'm unable to map the drive on my second computer that is connected to the network via the AP. However I can ping the Linksys NAS from my wireless computer.

A:Mapping Network Drive on Wireless Network Problem

like most NAS devices, the Linksys nslu2 has built in security administered through a web browser. You probably need to create a user acount for the wirelessly-attached computer, either by machine name, IP address, user id, or some combination of the above. You may also have to grant permission to the user or user group for the specific share you are trying to map. hope this helps.

Hello, i am new here on the forum. Im looking for any gentle help i can get here from you guys who might be able to figure out my problem.
For some time ago (around 1 month) ive been having problems with my internet from time to time which include a really slow responding or sending into the internet. It is so that sometimes my ping goes up above 200ms and stays there for a quite some time (maybe an hour or more). I check my ping using cmd and typing "ping ping.sunet.se". I can also feel that the delay is huge when playing online games, so there is deffenitly something wrong with the sending and responding. Also when i check my connection in mb/s using some homepages that calculates it, like "bredbandskollen.se" (a swedish page). And here i see that the mb/s speed is prefectly fine (around 7mb/s recieving and 0.4-0.1mb/s sending). Not sure if the sending speed is accepting thou. And when my internet is busy, like when i am streaming something or things like that, my responding speed gets a bit better like 150ms, thou when my internet is doing fine and works as it should i usually stay around 20ms ^^ so something must be wrong.
Now i woundering what might cause my internet troubeling. Any thoughts would be great, thanks!

I added a printer to my network (hp c5180) via ethernet cable. But problem accords when I try to map a network location (card reader 5in1 or sth like that, is used to read SD, xD, ms cards used in cameras) from which I d like to copy images, files in explorer without extra software from HP. After I installed drivers for printer, it automatically map a network location but when I try to open it or connect to that location I get an error:

"Access code is invalid"
The network path is "\\\Memory_card"
I copied this link in to my internet browser (in this case its g Chrome) and I was able to connect to the network location:

Its strange because all of XP based computers can easily connect, problem is only with windows 7 based computers.
Somewhere I found that this could be repaired with changing: (below)


1. Open the Administrative Tools in the Control Panel
2. Open the Local Security Policy
3. Select the Security Option under Local Policies
4. Choose Send LM & NTLM responses in Network security: LAN

or in reg:

In Windows 7, we can set the following Registry key ?HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol\Lsa\LMCompatibilityLevel? to ?1?.

But this solutions dont work in my case.

Does somebody know hot to fix this and what is causing it??

I am using a cablet connection with my Zyxcel P2602 HWT modem. The modem/router is provided by my internet provider. It also supports a wireless connection.

When i start my computer both the connections is fine. After a while though the cabled connection is said to be unidentified. It works as a local connection, but has no internet access. When i run the diagnoses for the connection it again recognize the network and its working fine for a while until the same happens.

I tried upgrading the driver without luck. The version now says Atheros AR8121/AR88113/AR88114 PCI-E ethernet Controller (NDIS6.20

Hello DonkrDjay, welcome to SF!

As a test, can you check what IP number your router gives you (through its DHCP server i hope) when it works well?
Then when it stops working... is it still the same or did you get a totally different IP for your PC?

Second, if posible, could you post snips of your router DHCP settings?

I recently had a computer that crashed and had to be rebuilt. Now that it is back up and running, Im having problems with mapping network drives. Specifically, two maps that were previously working.

If I go to my network places, all of the shares are present from all computers. I can get into all of them, except for two, both on the same computer. (on a windows XP pro) (the rebuild is also windows xp pro)

\\computer1\apps is not accessible. you may not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is Denied.

I checked the folders, both show access to everyone. I can access them from another computer. Simple file sharing is turned off on all computers. I can ping all computers, and vice versa. Netbios over TCP/IP is enabled on all computers.

any ideas?

let me know if you need more information, I can get whatever is needed.

For 2 years, My XP computer has had no problems picking up 10-20 wireless connections in my neighborhood,some i could connect to,some i could not because they were secured.

i decided to go straight , and purchase DSL.

i bought a new computer(vista) and got a westell 327 DSL modem,which is also a wireless router. The new computer is working fine, i called Verizon to set up the new computer's dsl wireless network,that worked out fine.

My old computer,the one i spoke about opening this thread, that computer immediately picked up the DSL signal from my new computer in the other room.. The signal was excellent and the name of the network WAS ON THE LIST of the dozen other wireless connections i could connect to. Problem is when i went to connect to my own DSL network, i got this error message:

"Limited or no connectivity
You might not be able to access the internet or some network resource. This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer."

I typed in the correct password,the little icon in the corner of my computer said both computers were connected, and with an excellent signal strength. Reiterating: i could still connect and go online with the other avaiable networks running the computer,but not my own.

I have an interesting problem that has been driving some pretty smart IT guys nuts. To perform my job I have to access a certain venders web pages that has security set up that I do not know all the details of. Anyway on the company PC using the company image that is a normal XP image and maintained by Comp U Com.

Any time I access this vender's web page it works fine until just after the log in screen. Once I put in my user name and password and click Ok IE just goes blank white and that's it. No error msg no nothing, its not locked up as the frame is still there and the world is turning but nothing else.

This happens on all the company PCs accessing this particular vender's web page as I went and checked. So I wanted to see if it the problem was in the PC or the network. I took the company PC home and was able to successfully log into that vender's web page from my cable modem at that house. Worked fine.

I have already added the vender web pages to the trusted zone and enabled all the active X and everything, deleted the cookies, tried some proxies etc. Every setting that can be done on the PC I have tried.

My question is what is the company network security system blocking that IE needs to work and how to resolve?


A:IE blank page problem on company network but works fine off company network

Oh and to add this I loaded FireFox and from the company PC on the company network it logs in fine but FireFox will not display the page correctly and all the buttons do not work right so that is another issue.

Hi everyone

I need to see if anyone has a solution to my problem. I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and my granddaughter has a Dell Inspiron i15-157B. I added her laptop to our wireless network (Linksys wireless-G broadband router model WRT54GS). Everything works fine as long as she's here in our home, but when she goes home and we try to connect our webcams through Yahoo Messenger, I can see and hear her just fine. She can see me but can't hear me. Why would it work here and not there? I'm wondering if it's something with our home network.

Her laptop at home is connected directly to the internet, but they will be setting up a wireless router also. We both use Vista.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you getting any 'link light' on the card you plug the cable into? Usually a little green light or Amber I think it is on Dell. If you are not I suggest trying a different cable from your modem to your PC.

Also, is your PC directly connected to the modem or into a router?

And when setting your IP address are you going to Start --> Control Panel --> Network Connections?

Hello Everyone,
I am new to this forum. I am hoping someone maybe able to help me diagnose and fix the problem with this problem. I have a problem with Acer Aspire One Network Adapter. The problem is that the netbook will connect to the internet and will have full bars for internet connectivity. Then a few minutes later it will just disconnect on it's own! I can usually reconnect by going on the Network & Sharing Center, then going into Diagnose problems, then clicking on Network Adapter, then after it resets, it will usually reconnect to the Internet, but lately it won't reconnect! I then have to restart the netbook. The netbook is running Windows 7 Starter, and it has Atheros AR5BXB63 Network Adapter. My friend who is a computer person searched online to confirm if the drivers were up to date, said that was not the problem. I would like any advise anyone can give me to see if this netbook can be fixed before I have to buy another! Please advise?

PCs are Win 7 Ultimate, All are joined to the Domain
Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP Server (on same instance) is Server 2012 standard
The network topology is like this: Router as Internet Gateway>Switch>Wired to Server and PC's, SIP phones, and Wireless Access Point all on same subnet. DNS and DHCP have been offloaded to Server Roles and switched off on the router.
All of the PCs have network cards that have joined the domain network at least some of the time since I set them up.
Some of them have always picked up the domain network and continue to this day.
Some of them intermittently pick up the domain network and other times join whatever other unmanaged network is available.
Some of them have stopped picking up the domain network altogether and will, no matter how many times their NICs are restarted, always join a non-domain (unmanaged) network.
When the NICs are not joining the domain, they are unable to ping hostnames of any devices on the network but nslookup of the hostnames usually works. The DC, DNS, DHCP server's IP can be pinged without issue, ipv4 or ipv6.
I am recording DNS Client Errors (ID 1014) on all of the PCs during the intervals when their NICs are identifying which network to join.

-On the PCs that are catching the domain network I am only getting a single error about the root domain, eg the domain is ad.domain.com and I am only getting errors about how the configured DNS servers cannot resolve domain.com (nothing with fully qualified

A:Network Problem ... same ip in 32 pc

I'm afraid you are beyond all help when it comes to making sense.. I understand if you are not so good at English, but you don't need that many language skills to get facts right. Think before you type maybe?

When you set the IP addresses of the computers manually, all the computers still get the IP of Surely the address is something like 192.168.x.x. And I really doubt it was 0.0 in the end. You'd have to use some exotic (and non-standard) netmask to achieve that.

Start over again. Step by step. What exactly do you have? A bunch of PCs, a "server", and a hub? Well, you most certainly can't get on the internet with only that. What kind of internet connection do you have? What kind of a server is it? What other networking devices do you have?

What exactly have you done? How did you configure the "server", how did you configure the "PCs"? How did you connect all the devices?

When setting everything up, please do it with only one PC at first. There's no point in going through all 32 of them if it doesn't work.

To make things easier maybe, go to the Desktop, right click on it, choose personalize, and select the Desktop icons you would like to show, including Network and Control Panel. Then, check things out in Control Panel > Network and Sharing. Be sure your network is shown as Private. Run the troubleshooter. See what things look like when you go to the Change advanced sharing settings link in Network and Sharing. If I am a little vague, then please forgive as I am on a Mac far away from my Windows machine. To facilitate things, show your network icon in the taskbar notification area.

You don't say what OS you are using or what Server software is in use, so I did a general search of the Microsoft KB and came up with the following.

If you could supply a bit more detailed information, it would help us pinpoint the problem, but try these;

My network connection, by it self disconnects and reconnects from time to time, up to 30 times a day if not more.
Ive called my ISP multiple times they are not being able to help, my protection software (Eset Smart Security) is also indicating Arp Poisoning Attack alot, and long time ago other messages were being displayed as ICPM Flooding Attack, DNS Cache Poisoning not anymore though only Arp Poisoning nowdays, And "two identical IP Adresses found" message also..

I have a problem in which my Ethernet controller goes into an inactive state, because it cannot find the local gateway to my router. If I disable and re-enable my controller it solves the problem, but only for a few minutes. This ONLY occurs if start downloading something, any stress put on the controller over a few kb/s causes it to fail.

Things I tried:
1) uninstalling the driver and reinstalling the ones from Nvidia
2) static IP addressing; It will still lose the gateway, don't ask me how, but i get the yellow flag and i have no internet connection.

It is getting really annoying that I cannot play an Internet game/Download a File or do anything but light internet browsing without having to reset the controller every few minutes.

I searched the forums before for a solution and I never quite found anything that worked. All of the problems seem to be back when Win7 was in beta or early RC.

If anyone can help out, it would be very much appreciated.

I have a very weired network problem , i really don't know what's wrong , I have a network that contains 5 clients and 1 server , all of them are using windows xp professional , including the server , they are connecting to a switch and there is a software for internet sharing on the server .

Everything was working perfect since today morning when suddenly the internet disconnected from the client pc's and they couldn't access it again , i've checked the internet sharing software and found that everything is fine , also checked the cable and found that it's also fine .

then i tried to ping a client pc from the server and found no response , tried to ping the server from the client pc and found a response , also clients can't ping each other , it shows the request time out message .

so now , every client can ping the server , but the server can't ping them ! , also they can't ping each other .

but when i click network neighborhood i can browse the files on the clients machines without any problem .

can you please tell me how can i fix this or what's the problem? the internet sharing software that i'm using is called allegrosurf .

please help !

A:network problem

Not being able to ping the machines sounds like a firewall issue, 99% of the time, that's the reason for failure to respond to a ping. Perhaps you can tell us what firewall products you use all around?

Can you access the Internet from the server? I'm not familiar with allegrosurf, so I'm not sure about configuration, but it seems that would be the place to start with a common failure.

Wondering if you can help - this has got me (and most of my workmates!) totally stumped!

I use Vista 32 bit as a central machine on my network. This comprises a set of (old!) VMS/Unix machines, with static IP addresses, on a 192.168.1 subnet and a set of DHCP'd (mainly Windows) machines on my 192.168.0 subnet.

A diagram is enclosed...

The Vista machine is on both networks, and has IPRouterEnabled set to '1' in the registry.

I can connect to both networks on the Vista machine with no issues.

How on earth do I connect from, say, to the internet (e.g., for Unix O/S updates)? Or from one of the DHCP'd windows machines (e.g., to say,

I guess this is something to do with routing, but I just haven't got a clue when it comes to this sort of thing...

Any help would be very much appreciated...

Many thanks.

A:Could someone please help with a network problem?

Think of it from the point of view of where a particular packet is going. Example:

1) The DHCP client whose IP is currently wants to send a packet to the Solaris host at It knows the destination IP, but it has absolutely no idea where the 192.168.1.X network is located. All it knows about is its own subnet - 192.168.0.Y, as well as its default dateway (DG) which is the wireless router at The function of a DG is to serve as the last resort, so our hapless client forwards the packet destined to the solaris host to the DG... and that has absolutely no idea where the 192.168.1.X network is located either, so it attempts to forward to its own DG upstream on the internet... and the first "real" ISP router that gets the packet will unceremoniously drop it because it's destined for a "private" range that shouldn't be floating about the Internet.

2) Now you're the UX host and you're trying to get to something specific on the Internet, perhaps an IBM web server at (say) Since the UX host has no specific route for the A-class 9.r.s.t network, it forwards the packet to its default gateway - - the Vista PC - which will in turn probably forward to its own DG, the wireless router, and so on to the IBM web server. The response then comes back to the wireless router, which looks up its NAT session mapping and notices that the original requestor was "", and it promptly goes into a... Read more

My computer keeps listing the internet connection as "limited". It does this randomly, I don't know when it will happen next. Restarting router/computer fixes it sometimes, but not all the time. Sometimes it takes about 4 restarts of the router until I get a proper connection. Trouble shooting merely describes the problem as having no connection and tells me to reconnect the router. This takes around 5 minutes each time and I'm getting tired of doing this, as it interrupts skype calls, games and conversations.

Is there any way of fixing this problem permanently?

A:Network problem

Try method 3 first in this post at Microsoft

WIFI connection shows Limited Access windows 8 - Microsoft Community

If still no success, then go to your device manger and uninstall your wifi drivers and reboot

Then reconnect to your wifi with the dvd already connected.

You will need to re-enter your wifi password.

I am encountering a network problem.

Question 1: When I captured packets there were lots of broadcasts from users and the protocol is NBNS. Is this normal on a network.

Question 2: I have also a device (which I did not discover yet) which is sending lots of lots of broadcasts and the protocol is IPX SAP.

a while ago someone on here had put up a problem they wer having with an online first person shooter, i think it was counter strike source....the problem was that any server under 24 person would work fine, but anything over that would freeze the computer up completely forcing the user to restart the comp, sometimes a sound loop would be heard and sometimes it would just freeze up...

i have just been asked this exact problem by a friend who is having trouble with Team fortress 2 and CS:s...works fine on servers below 24 slots but it freezes on servers with more than 24 slots...

i was wondering if ther was a solution found for it??

A:is this a GPU or network problem??

Probably some sort of driver glitch. Could be either one, but probably the network, as it seems strange that a GPU would crap out at 24 players only. Make sure they get the latest drivers for their network card (it could be the motherboard drivers as well), and maybe try installing another LAN card (they cost about $1 on eBay), to see if that helps.

To see if it's the GPU, have them start their own server, and just add bots to it to see if you can get past the 24 person limit. I don't know what the command is, but I'm pretty sure TF2 can have bots added.

the network has been mapped as the k drive on my computer.

i have had this network up and running previously and as far as i am aware i havent changed any settings. i have scanned for viruses etc and still no luck.

if someone could help me i would be so grateful. im online now so i can reply immediately

Hi everyone. If there was a solution to this, i'm sorry, i only looked at the first page to see if someone had my problem. >.<

I'm having problems with one of my computers on my little network. here are some details before i explain the problem.
i have cable internet
a lynksys router
4 computers all connected to the router so they can all be online at the same time. ^^

lets call the problem pc, "PC1"

every computer, can view eachothers shares. like so..

pc1 can view/access all other computers shares
pc2 can view/access all other computers shares expcet pc1
pc3 can view/access all other computers shares except pc1
pc4 can view/access all other computers shares expcet pc1
and that's the problem. its like my pc, (pc1) is TOO WELL protected. and yet, everything SHOULD BE FINE.

here are some more details to explain why i "think" everything should be fine.

pc1, pc2, and pc3, have xp pro
pc4 has xp home.
all are under the same workgroup
all have file and printer sharing enabled

all have latest, if not near latest version of zomealarm (free version. versiosn might be off by the last few decimals)

all have windows firewall disabled
zonealarm has been configured properly (at least to my knowledge). i added an ip range to the zones to ALL COMPUTERS exactly the same way to allow for sharing.

if i disable zonealarm on pc1, all other computers CAN VIEW PC1'S SHARES.
why? i do not know. pc1 is the only one with the problem. and ... Read more
