net access on new Win2k machines much slower than old win98 machines

Q: net access on new Win2k machines much slower than old win98 machines

We've just installed new fast win2k machines to our university network but accessing the network neighbourhood etc takes ages...the prehistoric win98 machines next to them are much much quicker - has anyone come accross this problem before -

The network cards are of equivalent specification - and I think they're set up right so why does this happen.

Preferred Solution: net access on new Win2k machines much slower than old win98 machines

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.)

I have a Peer-to-Peer workgroup network setup at home (NO domain). My Windows2000pro machine can access the 98 machines fine but the 98 machines cannot access the Windows2000 machines. It will prompt me with a dialog box with some path to that PC and need password.

What do I need to do? Do I need to give permission since Win2k is build in a NT environment. If so, how can I do this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi. I have recently set up a network of three computers. One cpu uses XP Home, the other two are newly-installed Win98 machines. I use a Linksys router to connect them. All machines see each other and access the Internet via the router. All machines have a sharing password enabled for full control. However, my XP computer cannot get past the password stage when trying to access the other two machines. Both Win98 machines have no trouble accessing the XP computer.

I don't understand how this can happen. At the password prompt, the XP machine shows the User name as "Guest" and is greyed out. Typing in the password and hitting "OK" does nothing at all. In addition, if I back out a bit in Network Neighborhood and try to access the Win98 machine again, sometimes I get the "inaccessible" error and the prompt says I may not have permission to use the (Win98) computer.

I have never had this problem before on other networks and, as far as I know, there are no specific permissions set on the Win98 machines. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
 

A:Cannot Access Win98 Machines from XP Machine

cycled thru the Network Setup Wizard a couple of
times on each machine alternately, A-B and then A-B again. also changed the name
of the workgroup from one name to another and then back, on both units. Don't use
the default MSHOME name. ( installed NETBEUI and then removed it. You don't need
any protocols except TCP/IP.) Also try Start>Run>"COMMAND" (enter) and then at the
DOS prompt type IPCONFIG to give local stats and then NET VIEW to see if the XP unit
sees the 98, and then PING (name of the 98 unit, as seen in net view) to see what
the XP thinks the 98's parameters are. These should get you on the road. --Are you
using a firewall? If so, then turn it off when troubleshooting.

I can communicate from win2K machine to win98 machine(s) fine, but can't do it vice-versa. i can communicate from win2k to win2k fine.

It asks to enter password for IPC$ on win98 machines and heck it dosen't accept anything as a password.

Please don't suggest any insecure help like create a network a/c or allow anonymous login as my server machine is also connected via a second NIC to my ISP's local (insecure) network.

After successfully setting up the LAN, I experienced and continue to experience difficulties sharing my dial-up connection. I am not looking for a high-speed connection, but simply for browsing, and this has worked in the past. I do not know how to configure the connection to run on the second comp at all, and am not even sure which properties or sharing config. window to open.

G'day

I have two computers, one windows 98se and one windows xp, and I'm having trouble getting the windows xp machine to list itself in Network Neighborhood. When I click View workgroup computers it returns the message "The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available".

The Windows 98se machine lists itself in network neighborhood. Norton Internet security is disabled. The windows 98se machine can browse the internet, but not the xp machine.

The windows XP machine is connected to the internet with a dlink 300 adsl modem connected to a NIC. Another NIC was added to connect it to the 98se machine. It worked once or twice, but after a reboot failed to work (but the internet on the 98 machine worked, so it's not the cable or connection). This created links on the xp machine to the 98 machine, which still work. I just need the xp machine to list itself therefore listing itself on the 98 machine.
Otherwise I can't share the printers and files. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Trouble connecting winxp and win98 machines

Install NETBEUI protocol on all systems, you'll be browsing in an instant. You'll have to get the files for XP off the CD in the VALUEADD directory and then you can install it for XP.

XP and 2K were designed for DNS name resolution, and since you don't have a local DNS server, and the default browsing mechanisms without DNS are spotty for these systems, it's not all that reliable. NETBEUI normally overcomes that issue.

Hello,

I have a workgroup set up with about 10 computers: 6 running windows 7, and 4 running windows XP. This morning out of nowhere, the XP computers can't access the network (network is set up and hosted on Win 7 machine), and the Win 7 computers can't see the XP computers in the network.

4 things are happening that make this particularly weird:

1. from the Win 7 machines, I can ping the XP machines successfully, and from the XP machines I can ping the 7 machines successfully. They are both active on the network.

2. From the host computer (Win 7), I can see and access all of the XP computers, though the XP computers give me an error message when I try to even go so far as to find the Win 7 computers on the network.

3. From all the XP computers, I can see the other XP computers on the network, and from the Win 7 computers, I can see the other Win 7 computers.

and finally,

4. The Win 7 computer is hosting a database back end from which the front end on each of the computers (XP and 7) pulls the data. Both XP and 7 computers have no problem still pulling the data from the back end in the Shared Documents folder on the host computer, even though the XP computers can't see the network.

Any suggestions?

I've just purchased a desktop PC with Windows 7 home premium - 64 bit. My "old" machine is a Vista, 32-bit laptop.

I'm trying to manage files between the two so that I can travel with the laptop and work at home with the desktop. I have used a synchronizing program to do this in the past. But, I am unable to access any folders on either machine from the other.

The drive and folders show up but access is denied.

I work on an open network. I have tried about a billion permutations. And, nothing works. Can someone help me out here?

I want both machines to be open to the other....it's not some complex access structure. You would think/hope that it would be easy to set it up this way.

A:access denied between two machines

If you created the same account name with a different password on each machine, that is the cause of errors.

If you didn't create a password for either account, that is also the cause of errors.

Easiest way (but not only) is to make a user account on each machine with the same exact name and password. This way, you can map drives and never get access denied.

Also, right click on the folders you want to share and choose properties. Security tab. Give permissions to "everyone." Type everyone into the permissions after hitting edit and add. Then modify the type of access you want to give.

Make sure computers are on the same Workgroup.

I'm trying to dig through a networking problem one layer at a time. My overall problem is that a Win-7 box can't access files on an old Win-98 machine. I'll probably wind up starting another thread regarding that issue.

But in while trying to figure out that problem I've discovered that although the Win-98 machine shows up as a network member, I can't see any of the other newtwork machines from the Win-98 machine. I have no problem seeing and accessing files on the Win-98 box from my XP desktop machine. But if I go to the Win-98 box and attempt to browse the network the only item I see is "Entire Network". If I select that I get an error message box that states "Unable to browse the network" and refers me to the Network Troubleshooter. I can bring up the network troubleshooter and it shows me several radio button options, but if I select one and hit "Next" all I get is an empty window.

So, it appears that I have at least two layers to the problem. Win-98 box can't see my network. Troubleshooter doesn't work (maybe not included when win-98 was installed?).

Interestingly, I have Win-98 running in a virtual machine, and that copy sees the network just fine and can access files from other network members ok.

I'm inclined to believe that something I need didn't get set-up right when Win-98 got (re)installed, but I can't figure out what.

I have two Windows 2000 Workstations.

One machine is sharing the network laser printer. This is my machine only, and my account is the only one on it.

My problem is that when I setup this printer on the other 2000 machine it needs a username and password from a user account on the machine serving the printer.

The one accessing the printer has five users on it, none of which will agree to enter their password on the server to make an account (so that they could access the printer without a u/n password)

How could I set it up so that it will just remember the password and username so they can print without having to mess with anything?

Hi guys,

I think this should be a fairly simple one, but I've had no luck in nailing down a solution on my own.

I have three systems (named "A57", "M58" and "T400"), on each I've shared the data partition (D: with access of "Full Control" for "everyone". This seems a bit risky to me, even though it's a home network, it does go through our internet router.

Each machine can see the shares on the other two.I'm only using simple networking, with no domain set up or anything like that. The workgroup is just set to the default "WORKGROUP".

What I'd like to do is limit access to the shares, so that only the three machines can access them. The user account I'm using on each machine is an admin-level account. The account names for each machine are as follows:

A57 = a57user
M58 = m58user
T400 = t400user

What permissions/settings do I need to set on each of the shares to only allow these three machines to access each others network shares?

Cheers,

Mike.

A:How to only allow specific machines to access shares?

Use Password protection for security. The only problem is that they get full access to every share. You are better off using a NAS, if you want to only allow individuals to those shares that their user ID on the NAS allows.

Hello everyone,

Let me start with the hardware:

1. my machine is a Getac B300 with a Windows XP Professional 32-bit/Windows 7 Professional 64-bit dual boot.
2. My wife's machine is a Toshiba U500 with Windows 7 Professioanl 64-bit.

Normally, I use the U500 as a hub: I connect it to the internet using a 3G-enabled Sony Ericsson Elm that I control through Sony Ericsson PC Suite 6.011.00* (I have an unlimited connectivity plan.) As soon as the U500 is connected, I set up a WEP-encrypted ad hoc network and connect my B300 (regardless of which system I happen to be booted into) and my wife's iPhone.**

I can do the same if I choose to boot into Windows 7 on my B300 and use that as the hub.

My question however, is as to why I can't get this whole setup to work out with Windows XP. I normally use the exact same way to connect to the internet (Elm and SE PC Suite), and I've attempted to set up an ad hoc network when I'm booted into Windows XP (through Windows and through Intel Proset), and I even managed to get the U500 and my wife's iPhone to connect to the network, but neither machine would get any internet access, even though I made sure to turn on Internet Connection Sharing for the connection.

So I'm beginning to wonder if it's even possible to get it to work with XP (as opposed to 7) being the hub.

All services are working properly, but we feel some slowness in the network and we are suspecting some machine is broadcasting and causing network devices to feel lost.

We have found also a single machine having a mac of 00:00:00:00 but we are unable to locate it so could this machine have something to do with such behavior and where should we really start from.

Can't access shared folder between two Win7 Pro 32bit machines. I have read through the forums. What I have done so far (on both machines) is disabled Homegroup (inc. leaving the homegroup and disabling services), set up the advanced network sharing options (network discovery on, file sharing on, password sharing off, use user accounts...). Added "Everyone" in the folders advanced security options... Also tried connecting through IP instead of computer name.

Unfortunately, I still receive the You do not have permission.... (see attachment).

The are many posts regarding Win7/Vista or Win7/XP issues.

Could not find much about the problem I am having.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi guys,

I am facing an issue in our organization. One of our user in the organization has changed the settings such that I cannot ping the system. Similarly I can't even access the system through remote registry option or through Computer Management-->Connect to a Remote Computer. I am getting the error message "Computer_Name cannot be managed. The Network path was not found." I have the Domian Admin rights but I am unable to get information about this system. I have checked the windows firewall setting on his computer by asking him to show me the firewall settings but there is no such configuration that can prevent the form accessing the system.

Can you please help me out what could be the possible reason for this??
 

A:Unable to Ping the Machines and Access the Remote Registry

Many possible reasons; network cable unplugged, network adapter disabled/driver problem, changed ip address, dns record changed/deleted. Knowing what settings the user changed would be a good start at fixing this instead of starting with --> "is the computer on" etc.

This is a strange one:

As of Monday Feb 26ths .. some of our client PC's .. approximately 10 (out of 80) have issues with the keyboard that manifests in two different ways.

1. Client comes in and attempts to press "Ctrl-Alt-Del" to log in .. however the keyboard is not responsive .. the mouse works, the machine is not frozen (you can turn num lock on and off) however "Ctrl-Alt-Del" does not work. If you click the "Help" on the lower right corner of the log in box the keyboard then responds and the client can log in. Or if you power cycle the machine the problem is resolved.

2. Clients attempt to "Ctrl-Alt-Del" at the end of the day to lock their machines and their is no response.

We do run a weekend reboot script but do not think that is the problem as we have been running that for a long time and it has not changed. It is happening across 3 different sites and to a multitude of users .. meaning there isn't anything obviously common to them.

My suspicions are a MS patch has something to do with this .. however nothing was deployed over that weekend.

Would disabling APM or ACPI (depends on BIOS) in the BIOS be an option? If so, also set the Contol Panel - Power Management settings to 'Never.'

hi,

This is probably a very simple question, I've somehow managed to use my new wifi router and made a workgroup that includes my desktop and laptop computers.Certain partitions between them are shared on the network.

Now, the only problem I'm having is I want full write access from both pcs. When I go into Sharing>Permissions>Add>Users I can't seem to see the other pcs user name? What am I supposed to do? Add the same username for the other pc?

Thanks
Gideon

Hey.

Actually, every single hard drive/partition from every machine is shared across the network.

Don't believe me? Then run this command from a command prompt:
net share

It will show you all the shares. The $ means that they are hidden on the network. You can map them from remote machines by using the C$, D$ etc...

To fix your problem, in the sharing tab, add a user by typing in everyone. Then set the appropriate permissions you want to give.

Well, this seems like a case of malware, but given that it has struck both vista machines at the same time, I am starting the thread in the Vista forum.

This morning, I got up and discovered that both of the Vista machines in our 4 machine network, are un-able to access the internet via browser. Strangely, they can access each other, share files, and I can even ping out to google from a command line, but that is as far as it goes. I get a connection error in both IE and Firefox. I can access the internet without issue on my XP laptop which I am presently typing on. It seems odd that whatever is at play affected both machines at the same time, which is why I tend to think malware, but who knows..

When I diagnose Connection problems in IE it tells me that windows did not detect any problems with this computers network connection.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista.

Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
No good.. any advice appreciated..

Hiya people, first off I'm new to the forum, so hi everyone

Anyway, as it says in the title I want to access the internet on one windows 98 machine via another. I already have them sharing files happily via a cross-over (or patch) cable, but I can't seem to get them to access the net via a lan in the normal way (ie via 'Internet Options'), so does anyone have any idea as to what I'm doing wrong? Is it even possible to share a dial-up connection (yes, I know it's slow, stop s******ing ).

Secondly, digressing from the subject of networking for a moment, the pc that hasn't yet accessed the internet doesn't seem to recognise the '.msi' installation file for apache web server, whereas the other machine does and starts an installation wizard when you run it, will this be remedied by running windows update when I do get it connected?

Many thanks in advance

A:Connecting 2 Win98 machines, connecting to net from one via the other

To connect both PCs simultaneously to the internet you need to be able to do "internet connection sharing" on the PC that connects to the internet. Go to the dialup icon (not the shortcut) right click it and then select sharing.

In order to use ICS you must have win98 second edition - it can not be done on win98 1st edition without 3rd party software.

I hope this helps

Hello All,
I am having an issue where some of the machines cannot access a db that is stored on a network drive. I believe the error gives wording relating to trusted locations. Is there a way I can add a trusted location in access 2002? I know how to do it in 2007 but have yet to do it in 2002. I will post more information if you need it on monday when I can get in touch with the users that have the error.

Thanks,

I have 7 win98 machines that see each other and work well accross the network, I also have a Winxp pro machine, my xp machine works well accross the network and accesses and prints great accross the network........ But when I try to access the XP machine with a 98 machine I get a "Enter Network Password" window, with a "Resource: //CHAD/IPC$" then it asks for a password, I have run network setup wizard, and in the security section, I have everyone for full access within the network, I also have a user name that is password protected for remote desktop access. I have tried using that password, but it will not let the win98 machines access the xp machine.

I have one computer that got infected with "antimalware doctor" and "ARManager" Which at first I got rid of with "Malwarebytes" but not with out a lot of error messages and application terminations.

I thought I could restore it before the infection occurred, but sadly the earliest I restored it to was when they first was installed onto the machine. So I used RKill and Combofix, which got rid of the infection. Still a few pop-ups but not as many as before. But the internet is gone. I had access to the network but couldn't browse anywhere via Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. I ran dial-a-fix program, used the repair function in Network Connections, reentered DNS and TCP/IP settings, but nothing is working. I have it to the point where I am told the web page is loading, but nothing is showing no matter how long I wait. I saved the logs for the Rkill and Combofix just in case.

Here is a couple of the errors I am getting.

"Act.Outlook.Service.exe NET Framework Initialization Error"
"AppleMobileDeviceService.exe Application Error: The instruction of 0x77c39fef" referenced memory "0x00333dc4". The memory could not be "read"."
"mDNSResponder.exe Application Error: The instruction of 0x77c39fef" referenced memory "0x00333934". The memory could not be "read"."

Hi
Just bought 3 new computers all with Window 7. Purchased these for 3 grandmas. Two Lenovos and One ASUS laptop.
Trying to set up their e-mail accounts, all use a local company rathen than gmail, or yahoo.etc. They really miss the old structure with Outlook Express. Rather than trying to teach them something new, is there a way to get an inexpensive Outlook program for them? They don't use anything else from MS Office. Sales rep said there was a Outlook Express program that was free to download, but I haven't found it yet. Help Please

Second question. Each of the machines go to MSN with their brand name in the address. Have tried to switch to plain msn.com without rather than asus.us.msn.com and same with Lenovo brand, but alway goes back to this add on.
I don't like the brand controlling how I, they browse. How do I get rid of this?

Thanks so much for the help.

Any opinions? They have good systems for a cheap price, but how is customer support and performance? I would be buying from Future Shop most likely btw.
 

A:E Machines

By all means, build your own computer! It will give you valuable experience and knowledge. Seriously. Even if you're buying this for another person, build it anyway. It can really be a rewarding experience.

Anyway, to the point...I imagine it's good, but not the best. E Machines has never really had a good reputation when dealing with customer service, part quality (the small things - like HSFs, cables, fans, PSUs, cases, etc.), in fact I've never heard anyone say anything good about E-Machines. But I would very much reccomend building it yourself. If I can do it, so can you.

When I built the 2nd machine in my house - I bought everything in mass from newegg - and they gave me no problems, had great prices, customer service, etc. etc. And it was very fun building the actual computer, from scratch. The great thing is that when you set up every peripheral for the first time, and set it up in it's permanent location, you press the button and everything works flawlessly. Very good feeling :grinthumb

Can I install the same download of Win 7 RC1 on two machines (using the same product key)? or do I need to make a new DVD for each machine?

thanks,

JAS

A:RC1 on 2 Machines

Hello JAS, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Normally you could use the DVD on any machine, but would need a separate product key per machine. However, since Windows 7 is still in testing, the keys have been working on more than one machine to activate them.

This will change of course when the retail version is released though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Below are examples of what I see when pressing F12 with IE11 on different machines. Both have the same set of updates. The first is on a Sandy Bridge with a i5-2550K, second an i7-3770K. Both are running w7 Ult 64bit.

EDIT: First image is from IE10, my mistake.
