Network problem

Q: Network problem

I just bought a hp a6130n computer, equiped with vista home premium 64-bit, and an nvidia nforce network controller. Whenever I attempt to download files from the internet, I get disconnected from the internet, and my network. My network status flashes back and forth between a red X and a triangular yellow shield with an ! in it. When I attempt to diagnose and repair, it says that a network cable is unplugged. I have tested the cable, and it is perfectly fine, and there is no tampering with it at all whatsoever during downloading. The problem is fixed when I restart my computer, but I cannot download anything using internet explorer (things like updates from blizzard work okay). Lastly, I preformed a hardware diagnostic (which was given all passes), and a ping command, which timed out to any website I tried. Please help!

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.

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?

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

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 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 "\\192.168.1.9\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)





Quote:

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:





Quote:
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??

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 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.

HI,

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

Dave
 

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?

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?

Thanks

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..

I then have to restart the netbook. The netbook is running Windows 7 Starter, and it has Atheros AR5BXB63 Network Adapter.

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?

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.

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.

Hello everyone, I know my fair share about computers but not a whole lot about the technical details so if you could give me distinct instructions on the advice you give me so I can help you more efficiently that would be great.
My problem started yesterday when I bought some more ram for my gaming computer and installed it into my computer. As soon as I started playing world of warcraft my computer started randomly shutting down. So I thought maybe my computer couldn't take that much ram or something. I installed 2GB of PNY DDR. So i had a total of 3.5GB in my computer. I took out the ram I put in to see if it would work again but when I rebooted my computer, my wireless adapter (Linksys wireless USB G adapter) didn't show up under the network connections. So when I took out the USB adapter and put it back in it would show up but not connect. And when I tried to enable it, my computer just freezes now. I have tried everything I can think of to fix it and nothing works. I am so frustrated by this now I have resorted to answers from someone else instead of paying to go to a computer shop cause I don't want to pay money for something that is probably easily fixed.
I am on my other computer which is a laptop so I know our internet is working, but I have no clue what else to do. If you need anymore information just let me know how to find the info and I'll get it to you.
Thanks for any help.

How about calling your machines, say, XP1, XP2, 2K1 and 2K2 for this thread? From one of the XP machines, which of the others can you ping by IP address? By computer name?

What router has a USB connection?

My network consists of a desktop with xp and a netgear router and a laptop with win 2000. I have added a second laptop with win 98. All 3 can access the internet. The two laptops see each other, and the original laptop and the desktop see each other, but I can't get the 98 laptop and the desktop to see each other. I uninstalled the firewall on the desktop to no avail...help please?

I've recently attached an older Dell running WinXP pro to my home network. Until now my only experience has been with XP home. I'm having a problem moving files between computers. My two WinXPh systems can transfer files between them easily enough but this new one running XPp keeps giving me the following error:

Make sure the disk in not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
either that, or I get an error about being authorization.

Using the Admin I've opened up both computers as much as I can to being able for other system to manipulate files on the other but nothing seems to work.

Your thoughts?

Due to v slow bb speed we have a bt service and also a EE mobile BB service.
To change between the 2 we change 3 cables from one router to the other. (The 2 pcs are wired from the routers, other cable is network printer
On BT the network is 4. On EE it is 3.
The settings appear identical on each network.
Shareing files etc works fine on network 4. Main job is a database
On 3 it does not connect to the database. Clicking on the PC in network explorer it requests a password to proceed.
Brosdband works fine on both connections
Any thoughts on what is going on

A:Network problem

'Limited connectivity' of course means that you don't have internet connection. Did you go to control panel...then 'internet connections' to see what it says? I would think that your ethernet connection is not set up right. Have you connected your laptop to the internet ever? I believe that your laptop internet connection device drivers are not installed, or have gotten corrupted. If you go to device manager and locate 'internet connection hardware' get to 'properties' and read the information.

Hello all. When I try to play counter strike over my network it lets me create a game but if any computers on my network try to join a game it says something like cs is for home class c networks. This is how my network is set up... cable internet goes into my modem, goes into a dumb hub, one cable of the hub goes into a computer the other cable goes into a 8 port swich which two other computers are connected to, also a hub which is split into two computers is hooked up to the swich. At lan parties this dose not happen so i think its with my network. Also for starcraft it says it does not know what vesion i have when i try to log on to batte.net.

I set up a server and 2 workstations with xp pro on all machines.
One of the stations is a laptop from which I can't access the window directory or program files on either the server or the other workstation. I get a "denied access. not authorized" message. All systems have been installed exactly the same thru the network wizard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

I have win 7 ultimate x64 installed. everything works well, but I have faced a strange problem! My computer is a member of a network where there are also many computers. However, in the "Network" page, I can see only a few computers!!!
I'm aware of network discovery and firewall settings and these settings are correct on other PCs. As an example, I can access shared folders on a PC in my office by its IP address, even I can connect to this one and full control it remotely from my PC. But this one does not show in the "network" page and I cannot access the computer by its name or connect it remotely.
Although the IP address works fine, since the network is DHCP enabled, this address changes time to time and causes problems for me.
Could anyone please help me what is the problem with my network?
Thank you in advance

My brother and I's computers are connected to a BT Home Hub. He has a wired connection to the router and I am using a USB Belkin dongle thingie. I have this problem sometimes (He says he sometimes gets it too) where the internet works great and then if I go away for maybe 1/2 an hour to have dinner or play the PS2 etc. I come back and I am still connected to the internet. System tray icon says so and my torrent is still running but If I open FF or IE then it can't load web pages. It just loads for a couple of minutes then I get the cannot find server mesaage. Uusally, the problem can be fixed by leaving the PC for an hour or two but it's annoying. Any ideas?

im connected to my network and everything works good, for about 20-30min then all the sudden my connection drops off, like the router freezes and i have to reboot it to get my connection back. Did i do something wrong or is the router going. I have excellent signal strength and havent had this problem before. Like i said, il be on the net for awhile and then my internet connection will leave, and it gets stuck on "acquiring network adress" and i have to reboot the router to get my connection back. do i have to change something through my router management page?

I have a wireless network throughout my house and all works fine except with one computer. As far as I can see it is set up the same way as all the others, however it is operating XP Home and the others Professional. The wireless connection is clearly working however because I am able to connect to the internet from this machine, its just when I come to access the other computers on the network where I have the problem.

When I attempt to "view workgroup computers" on this computer it comes up with the error "Hart (name of the workgroup) is not accessible. You might not have permission to view this network resource. Contact the administrator etc..The list of servers for this workgroup is not available". I have no idea why this is because I don't get the problem on the other computers.

If I do the same on any of the other computers the list is generated, however it does recognise the machine with the problem. When you then attempt to connect to that machine it says that access is denied, whereas with any of the other computers on the network it lets you access the shared folders.

There is important information I need to share from these computers so I would appreciate it a lot if anyone could help.

Thanks in advance

Just posted a reply and been fiddling around, the pc and laptop seem to be recognising each other, both have little icons bottom right showing network connection excellent. Now my next problem is why is the laptop unable to access the internet. I am with NTL broadband and this setup is with an internal setup in the back of my pc. I hope I have set up the wires correctly e.g. main ntl cable from ntl settop box into main router connection, then the blue cable into pc and number 1 in router.

Hello, welcome to TSF, you question is a bit unclear. Are you using a modem + router or just one?
There is no ethernet error do you mean "limited or no connectivity"? or "red cross mark"? you need to be more clear.
To fix this problem you can either have a manually configured IP address or you need to update your network card.

Ok, let me try and explain this as best as I can and hope someone can help me....

I have a Dell Netbook which is connected wireless to my home network. I am able to have access to the internet with no problems..I can see SHARED drives on other computers with no problems and I can even transfer movies from my NETBOOK to my tivo as well.

I have a LINKSYS EFG80 Network Storage unit which I connect to my NETBOOK ethernet connection. Once I turn that on I loose the ability on the NETBOOK to see SHARED DRIVES and to TRANSFER movies to my tivo. The Tivo does not see the NETBOOK.

On the EFG80 there are 2 possible connection settings....one is for PC and the other is LAN. Both give me the same results.

At this point I am going to wait and see what information you need from me and I will then add to this thread.

Thanks in advance to those who take their time to try and help me....I really do appreciate it...

Hi all. I recently purchased a laptop (Inspiron 6400 w/1390 wireless mini-card) and I'm trying to set up a wireless network at home. For various reasons I'd prefer not to go the router path right now, so I thought I'd set up an ad hoc network with my desktop (both machines are on XP). Using the reference from Microsoft's knowledge base - seemed easy enough - I bought a USB wireless adapter for the desktop (Zyxel G-202) and followed the MS directions to the letter.

Well, while there were a few hiccups I managed to get the settings as described using XP's config utility rather than the vendor's. Ad hoc network is set up, ICS activated, ZoneAlarm turned down to medium for the internet zone. Problem is, I can't get the lappy to recognize the network - it just isn't showing up. I'm no expert, but I have tried all the obvious fixes, no luck.

So... Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm sure it must be something infuriatingly simple, but I'll be damned if I can find it.

Thanks - Dan

I have been using windows media player 11 to share files with my 360 for awhile. today the network service (wmpnetwk.exe) started eating 100% cpu. i've researched as deep as i can and know its something microsoft upddated. Disabling network sharing solves the problem, but i use this function daily and can't imagine living without it. I guess i could use zune, but like wmp11 and its features. If anyone knows a specific reason for the extreme memory usage, or how i can stop it, please reply!
 

A:WMP network problem?

Go to Start then click Run. Type services.msc in the Run line, then find the windows media networking. It will be on automatic, change it to manual and reboot. Right now I'm streaming to the PS3 working online, and have a couple of other windows open. My computer is just a single core department store low end thing. You may want to disable media sharing in WMP first as that is what I did. If you are running Vista I believe the run line is available in the classic start menu or can be added to the new one through the properties menu, but best ask someone who has Vista. CPU currently 0-25%, and not because wmpnetwk.exe is doing anything
