Problem With Network - Win 7

Q: Problem With Network - Win 7


So someone set up a network for me on my 2 Win 7 computers & now on one of them, it says it can't find the network.

I've tried to run diagnosis & figure it out on my own, but nothing I do is working

I copy files from one computer to the other (not vice versa). I think that's the computer (the one that doesn't work) needs to be fixed, as I can still access the files on the computer they are copied to.

Can someone help?

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

I am surprised that the old XP desktiop has wireless functionality. Did you add wireless to it, recently? If so, is it shown as operating correctly in Device Manager?

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?

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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?

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.

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

We installed a new wireless router, Netgear RangeMax (WPN824) which is 802.11g. We have two computers hooked up to it in different parts of the house. It works great for internet and the speed is fantastic. Here is the rub. We have opened port 5190 and ICQ will connect and work great, but when our boys try to sign into AIM we get a message that says "The Instant Messaging Service cannot be reached." We get this same message on all the computers. We have tried hooking a computer directly to the cable modem and then it will connect, so it isn't the AIM network. We are stumped. Everything we read says AIM uses port 5190. Any suggestions on solving this problem?

I'm running a network with a Windows 2000 Server running AD, a Windows 2000 member server and workstations running '98, 2000 and XP Pro.

I have no problem logging onto the local domain from my XP workstation, and I have administrator rights to both the workstation and the servers.

Everything usually works just fine and I can access the servers without a problem....

...and then, suddenly, for no apparent reason when I try to access one of the servers I get prompted for a user name a password. If I put in the username and password I am already logged on with, it tells me this has already been denied, and to try a different name and password. If I put in a different name and password it allows me onto the server and I can continue as normal.

Strange, don't you think??

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

Just today I bought a Linksys router. I properly installed it, and wired everything correctly. The internet is working fine on my computer (windows XP), but I cant seem to get it to work on my brothers computer (windows 95SE).

I have a small home network. My pc is wired to the modem and the router. Both other pcs can connect to the internet but mine cannot. I'm running xP pro sp2 .The Dchp file is missing from the services folder and ipconfig shows o.o.o.o. and no default gateway. Other commands tell me that my media is disconnected. Device manager tells me hardware is working properly. I have tried regcure- no help. I've tried hijackthis, no help. Ive tried netsch command. No help. Ive tried new cables-tried disconnect and reconnect several times- even tried new card. No help.Tried winsockfix- no help. Tried re-installing linksys software and it stalls telling me to plug in router when its already plugged in and working. I have no access to firewall- I get a message that an unknown problem will not allow the machine to access settings. I have Mcafee installed -tried disabling-no help. It may have come about through an installation of windows One care which would not work because of Mcafee- I deleted one care - still no good I've tried so many fixes I can't remember all that I've done. Can anyone help!!!!!!!!!

Hey guys. I have a problem with one of the computers on my network. It will connecet to the wireless and LAN connection, but the connection is only local, I can see the other computers on the network, but I cannot connect to the internet myself. Yet all of the other computers on the network works perfectly.
Weird thing is that it happened just suddenly.

I think I must've tried almost everything by now (well everything I had in my mind), resetting the router, turning off and on the network card, reparing the connection, updating the network driver and the list goes on..

It's a HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop, and the network card is Intel Pro Wireless.

Any thoughts on this?
Best regards, Fred

I am helping my neighbour to get her laptop (Windows Vista) to work wirelessly. It did work ok but not now.Even after I put the setup disc into it, it does not show that it has recognised the router. I can only get it to work by using an ethernet cable. I tried to install my router onto it and it came up with a message saying it had "two network adapters, please click on one of them" or words to that effect. It didn't show anything to click on!
Also she has recently bought a new desktop computer (Windows 7) and when I was looking into the routers settings it is still showing her name of the old PC she has scapped in the Network. Therefore on the BASIC NETWORK INFORMATION screen it says Network 2. I know this is probably not important but if she ever buys a new PC in the future it will show Network 3!! So what can I do to get rid of the old computer name on the router settings?
Is this the reason the wireless laptop needs to know which "Network" to use as the old computer name is Inactive.

can we see an xirrus screen shot - you will need to download and install while connected to the router

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

Direct link to the program is here http://info.xirrus.com/Wi-FiInspectorConfirmation.html

{If the above link does not work heres another link http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_download/fid,77196-order,4/download.html}

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need will need to haveNET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

Hey everyone,

I just recently started having this problem and it's got me stumped. I thought I had it fixed for a while, but it comes back. Here's the details:

First off, I notice when I power up my PC and log in, my network connection will say "Local Area Network Only". No Internet along with it, but when I start up Firefox, it loads my homepage fine and the status of my network connection changes to include Internet. I don't know if that's part of an issue, but thought I'd mention everything.
Anyways, the real issue:
I upload and download a lot of pictures and home-movies and I was downloadling all my videos (roughly about 50GB) from a site I post when my network connection dropped off - completely. I wasn't even able to connect to my other computer on my network. I also noted that the first core of my CPU was pegged at 100%. I closed everything down and let it idle for a couple minutes. No change in the CPU or network status. Requesting a new IP doesn't work. Disabling and Re-enabling the NIC doesn't work either. Plugged my network cable into another port on my router, no workie. Plugged cable into 2nd NIC, still nothing. Using the "Diagnose and Repair" option doesn't solve anything as it can't find what's wrong. I turned off the power management option on the NIC config as well. This solved the problem for a while, but now it's back again. Basically, I have to reboot my machine for everythin... Read more

I would like to acces a different computer over the current network I am using.

When I go on the "network" folder, it shows and displays the range of computers that are currently on my network..

(I have tried in vain to deactivate on the computer I would like to connect to all of the restrictions)

When I select the computer that I wish to connect to and double click, an error message pops up, (I have tagged the image that hopefully you will see)

I have tried everything but there just has to be something that I am missing.

Might it be helpful if I were to precise that the computer I wish to connect to via the network is under Windows Vista Premium. (--> yea I know this is the Windows 7 site but lol I myself am under windows 7 so.. yeah ! ^^)

I appreciate your help guys..
