log in requirement for local network

Q: log in requirement for local network

I am running XP home on two wired (cat 5) computers. I have replaced one and although I can see the other computer in explorer and the file folders I can't gain access due to a dialog box that asks for a password. The other computer has full access to the computer I'm having the problem with. The network is working fine going one way only. I have set up many networks and this is the first time I have had this problem. I have gone thru all setups to confirm that they are correct! ???



Preferred Solution: log in requirement for local network

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: log in requirement for local network

The account you logon your machine has to exist on the replaced machine. Same name same password. You also need to have file and print sharing enabled as well as the windows firewall set to allow file and print sharing. Than you will have access without being asked for a password.

I'm currently in the process of testing/deploying IE11 in our environment and I've begun testing on the IE11 Enterprise Site List manager.
I've read that there are a few different ways to configure the XML file to apply via GPO per the article below.  HTTP, Local Network, Local File. (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Dn640699.aspx)
In my isolated testing I've chosen to use the local file method which is very easy to setup and use on a testing machine.
It looks like we have the flexibility to choose how we apply the XML file, and I was curious what the best options are and why?  Also are there examples of each setup being used and the benefits/downsides to each?
Here's the options that I can see using:
1. HTTP - setup an IIS website to host the XML file.
2. Local Network (UNC) - setup a UNC path on our DFS where we store the current XML file and users would have read only access to that location.
3. Local File - We could just deploy the XML file via SCCM package/application when updates to the list are required.
Could anyone please point me towards some articles, etc, explaining the pro's and cons of these methods and why I might want to choose one over the other?  I'm leaning towards just using a DFS share and option #2 because it doesn't require us to maintain
an IIS site for it but I am curious to hear if there might be any downsides to this method, or benefits to going with another method.

This sounds really noobie of me but is it possible to improve local network transfer speed by adding a 2nd network card. I was planning to connect one exclusively for lan transfers and another one hooked to a separate wireless router.

Right now only a maximum of 3 users can stream SD videos off the PC before it gets a little choppy.

The pc in question runs on windows 7 and it's board has built in gigabit, I happen to have a spare gigabit card.

A:Will adding a 2nd network card improve local network transfer speed

That won't really help the way you are describing the problem, although adding access points will help with streaming to wireless devices.

Although there is a setting in Group Policy that allows you to use two connections at the same time, I don't believe it will help in this situation.

I've done many HD movie streaming tests on my system.

I can stream from my media PC to at least 7 other machines at the same time, 4 wired, 3 wireless, plus my TV, and have no problems at all, no skipping, no freezing, even with the same movie in the same place or with 8 different movies at once, my TV is connected to my media center PC so counts as the 8th one.

This is Gb LAN, and 300Mbps wireless but even the 65Mbps limited laptop has no problem.

I'm not really sure why you are seeing these limitations but it may be the router.

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.

Over a two day period I spent four hours with Netgear premium support to resolve an issue I thought would take them ten seconds. I added a device to my network with a DHCP reservation and used port forwarding to make it accessible from outside my network. The device is an Arduino microcontroller with an ethernet shield which uploads data from a sensor that I monitor remotely. According to many Arduino Forum posts I read, I should be able to enter into the address bar my device IP address, a colon, and the port I have forwarded for it. For example: and see the data my device is reporting. That didn't work.

Finally Netgear gave me a web adress that resembles 76.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx and that works. Nothing in this address resembles my network, my device, or the forwarded port. I asked them how they came up with that but clearly they didn't want to take the time to explain. I asked, what if I want to do this again in the future- do I have to go through all this again? They said "yes, call us again and have a nice day." I have to go back to my router settings and make sure they didn't just dump me into a DMZ!

So my questions to you sages is what's the significance of this address that starts with 76, why is there so little out there about it? Does my ISP have control over this or does my router? And most of all how do I achieve this seemingly simply remote access myself?

Thank you!

I posted a couple of days ago about my network access dropping from local & internet, to local, to no connection, after recently upgrading to vista.
I tried every solution othe people have posted on the net but my problem still persisted.
So last night I reinstalled vista and created a restore point after the 1st start-up. I was able to use the internet without interruption for over 5 hrs. Then this morning windows installed updates. After the updates were installed my problem started again. I went ahead and restored my computer to the 1st restore point, and now it is working fine.
My fix to this problem is to not install any updates. I know that it is not the proper fix, but for anyone as frustrated with vista as i am, this is a way to maintain your internet connection.
I am a newcomer to vista, but I found out that this problem has been happening to other for years. I can't understand why microsoft wont fix this problem.
If this post helps anyone else with the same problem, please reply with your story.

A:Local Network Fix

the problem with not updating vista is it leaves your operating system wide open to attack , thats exactly how conficker spread. An unpatched OS can make your firwall and AV next to useless

why dont you set your updates so they are not automatic , then pick the updates to install , install them one at a time run your pc for a while each time until you find the offending update

I would like to start using a VPN service for better privacy while online. However, I have read that using a VPN client will block the local area network, is this true? I use a HTPC with a large RAID array to share media with my other devices and I want to still be able to access my local files via network drives while using VPN to browse the web. Is this possible?

My current setup is the HTPC/file server, xbox360, and a workstation PC connected via ethernet to a dd-wrt router. The dd-wrt router connects via WiFi to a primary router plugged into the modem. The primary router also supplies WiFi to some phones. I have WiFi adapters for the 2 computers if that helps, but I uninstalled them when I couldn't figure out how to get Windows to separate local file sharing over the faster ethernet and internet over WiFi.

I'm pretty inexperienced at networking, but am willing to try anything to make this work. Thanks in advance for your help!

You'll have to do something called "split-tunneling" to access both the internet and LAN.

This just happened out of nowhere yesterday morning. My roommate was using her laptop with no issues until suddenly the connection cut out. She tried reconnecting, but had no luck so she waited, still no signal. She was able to see our network name but it would not allow her to connect to it. Same thing when I tried my laptop. I could see it scanning wi-fi and showed available connections including our own, but it wouldn't let me connect.

The desktop in our home office has internet. The modem is showing all the proper lights flashing, indicating there is ethernet, DSL and internet.

When we open our laptops and get a signal even for a brief moment, it kills the connection on the desktop and all lights on the modem go off, except the power light which starts flashing slowly. Totally loses connection. As soon as we close the laptop, the connection comes back on the desktop.

I noticed that the icon in the tray that indicates connectivity (the two computer monitors flashing blue back and forth) looks different than normal. There is no little globe in front of them, there are just two monitors and there is usually a globe showing internet access. So I clicked it and it says we're connected to "Network 7" Access: local. So I took a screen shot of this.

What is going on, can someone help me out? I have no idea what to do but we need internet on the laptops. If you need any more information from me, feel free to ask! Thanks!

I'm puzzled as to how "add a local printer" and "add a network, wireless or bluetooth printer" are different.

Under "Add a local printer", I can use an existing port or create a new port, under which I can set a TCP/IP address to connect to shared printer over network. What's the difference between existing port and new port? How is this port local when I can set IP address to printer shared over network?

And how does "add a network, wireless or bluetooth printer" function differently than the former? I'm trying to distinguish the nature between the two so I can get a better understand for troubleshooting purposes. I appreciate any help.

One of my mom's friend recently gifted me his old laptop, because he bought a new one. It is a Windows Vista, 32-bit about a month ago. Everything was working fine, until last night when I closed my laptop in the middle of a Netflix show. Perhaps that was wrong, but I've never had that issue before.

Anyway, this morning when I woke up, my internet was not working. The diagnostics said that my Wireless Security Key was not correct, even though I typed in the correct password. I even checked on my phone, and my phone worked!

So on my phone, I managed to Google the issue. I tried the solutions, and none of them worked. Till I was fed up, went into my router by clicking, properties and tried every single security type. Then magically it worked!

Ironically, on the same security type that it started with:

Okay, I've searched everywhere looking for the fix to the "Local Only" network problem. I've had it a couple days and can't find why I can't get through to the internet. I have disabled IPv6 and tried static ip which I don't think works with my router and some registry fixes and cmd commands. I'm connected through Ethernet wire so it's not a wireless thing. I don't know if I should switch back to XP Pro or maybe buy a new network card. Help please.

Modem/Router: Actiontec Wireless DSL Gateway GT704WGV (2 in 1 type thing Modem + Router)

And here is the list from cmd - ipconfig /all
The first is if I set my ip static and the second without it. It seems that if I don't set my ip static then it does not find the router and only finds unidentified network while if I set my ip static it does but I don't believe my router works with setting static ip from the computer. I can also see the other computers linked into my router but just can't access the internet making me believe it is something with the compatibility with the router and Vista.

Hey Chris (I'm assuming your name is Chris from the IP settings...),

Let me be the first to welcome you to Vista X64 forums.

It looks like your router/modem does not have DHCP enabled (or it has a MAC Address filter in place.) Do you know how to edit your router's settings? If not, your ISP may need to do it from their side.

I would like to thank you one hundred ten percent for posting this information from the get-go. It makes our lives so much easier when information is posted in this manner.

It looks like when your computer is set to DHCP/Automatic IP, your router is not giving the PC an IP address. If I'm not mistaken, the 169.254... IP addy is an APIPPA address (Automatic Private IP Address). This address is used by Windows when it is looking for an address but the router it's connected to does not want to give it one.

This either means your router has DHCP disabled, or your router has a "filter" on it baring all but a specific set of MAC Addresses/computer names from connecting to it.

Good morning, I connect at home wirelessly with no issues using W7 Ultimate on my Fujitsu laptop. I don't really understand all the different types of network but currently I share with no one, and under the network settings it states 'Home Network' and then 'Ready to Create.'

I was away for work recently at another site and they have an open wi-fi for visitors to use on non-work laptops, so it's passworded but other than that, it's totally unrestricted.

When I tried to connect it found the wi-fi network with full strength but would not identify and connect - the password was okay as I when I tried an incorrect one, it stated just that.

Do I need to do something different with regards to grouping/network etc or could the fault have possibly been with them?

I have networked four machines in a workgroup called, let's say "Tollbooth.", with IP addresses in the 10.###.###.### range, incrementing the last digit, as described in all refence books (the IP addresses have been checked, verified, and rechecked) and using the same subnet mask (checked, etc.).

The machines are --
1. GreatOne, the Micron, NT 4.0 SP6a, diaup modem. 3Com 509 Combo NIC with latest drivers and diagnostics, RAS, NetBEUI, TCP/IP, WINS client. The NIC adapter is bound to all three protocols but not to RAS services. I have two RA WAN Wrappers listed; the one bound to everything but NetBIOS, the other bound only to "RA WAN Wrapper" [?]
When I choose Network Neighborhood, GreatOne can see the workgroup, but not the machines, NOT EVEN ITSELF.

2. Slippage,Toshiba Portable, Win 98, RealSYS MCMCIA card, Win 98 dialup for builtin modem. It can see [4] Zipper, and [2] itself. Cannot see [1] or [3].

3. Shapeless, handbuilt, NT 4.0 recently reinstalled and then updated with SP6a. 64 megs of RAM, 120mHz, LinkSYS card. Networked successfully before crash and SP6a (when running SP4). Can see [2] and [4], but it can't run Server services because "not enough server storage is available." (I have tired every legal setting for IRPStackSize [4-12] to no avail.) So it is inv...

A:NT Machine can't see local network

Check to see if the "Computer Browser" service is running on the NT machine Great One (under Control Panel/Services). If it's not start it. If it was running then stop and restart the service. If that fails remove great One from the workgroup and re-add it.

As for Shapeless I would uninstall and reinstall the service pack to see if that fixes the problem.

I would also dump NetBEUI on allv the machines since you don't actually need it when running TCP/IP.

Hope this helps.

I have two computers connected to the same modem with a printer connected to the one. The problem is that I can neither find the printer through Windows from the other computer so that I'll be able to print documents from both computers nor can I create a local network between the computers. I can't understand what the problem is because both computers connect to the internet without any problems.

So frustrating. Okay. I have a pretty basic network. Its 3 computers, 1 wireless 2 wired. all through 1 router. Okay I have an ADSL modem to a Linksys WRT54g, then two computers wired, one on wireless and an XBOX 360 wired too. I cannot ping one wired computer to the other, both computers can ping the router and both can ping loopback (

Why cant they ping eachother? I have had this network setup and running before, now i have updated both motherboards in both wired computers and reinstalled windows on both aswell. They used to communicate perfectly and when i went to setup the network they could already ping eachother so i never had a problem. any suggestions?

A:Solved: Need Local Network Help PLEASE

If they are both accessing the internet through the same router an inability to ping is almost always a firewall issue.

I recently purchased a new HP laptop with built in wireless adapter. While setting up this PC I connected to my wireless network just fine to update the windows operating system, (Vista Home Premium).

A few days later I upgraded my desktop PC which is connected to the router with a cable from XP Media Edition to Windows Vista Home Premium.

Now, when I turn on my new laptop it will only connect to my wireless network "locally" and not connect to the Internet.

Nothing has changed with my router.

What gives? I can't make it work.

Hello !!
Whats up? Did u miss me?

I have 2 PCs in my room. A new (PC1) and the old one (PC2). I want to set PC2 as "downloading machine", working silently all the time, without any mouce or keyboard, just the box. I mean I will control it through PC1.
By the time, I made all connections---> I have a modem router (SpeedTouch 530i) and a Switch(8 ports). I used 3 straight ethernet cables. I connected PC1, PC2, SpeedTouch on the switch. Am I ok? Now then...

WHAT program(free) do I need in order to control PC2 through PC1? Because PC2 wont have its own monitor or mouse, I need control it from PC1. This mean that I must see in my screen(PC1's screen) the desktop of PC2 and be able to work with, exackly as if I used it normally(the PC2). And of couse be able to transfer data(from PC2 to PC1).

ANOTHER one matter is what will happen with the internet sharing. Do I need to use any special program for this?

Thanks for your valuable help!

Hey all, my first post so bear with me.

Running Vista Home Premium 64 and I'm having great difficulties connecting to the internet through my home network.

My wireless router is a D-Link WBR-1301 and I've tried the Internet Connectivity Test on microsoft.com using another laptop with XP and it said the router should work with Vista albeit with some vista features disabled. D-link itself says the router should work with Vista.. and I have to most up-to-date firmware for the router. The XP laptop connects to the network and internet just fine. I have WPA-2 security running and I made sure both machines are using the same passkey and are part of the same workgroup.

The problem is that Vista says I'm connected to the network but there is no internet connection and no amount of diagnose and repair fixes the problem, such as reseting the wireless adapter, obtaining new IP address, etc.

I've even tried using a LAN cable to connect to the router but to no avail either.

Does anyone have any idea to what is going on here? Is this possibly a router compatibility issue?

Hi malfuriouspete,

Go into your Network And Sharing Center (either through Control Panel or right-click on the network icon at bottom right and select)
Your network name should be declared here as Private - if not, you can click "customize" and put it as Private

Ok i got a gateway laptop last year and it has always worked fine, it came with windows vista home premium. Well recently I got a new router becuase the other one broke. I got a nice 60$ linksys router.

I set the router up on my desktop (xp os) and everything worked fine. Well everything worked fine for 2 days. Now my laptop only gets a local only connection to the netwrok, even if i plug it in directly.

My roomates mac and xp laptop work fine wirelessly and mine worked for 2days.

I have searched the internet and tried turning off the Ivop 6 or whatever it is.
i thought i had it figured out when i tried this
