Windows 2000 in cross-band network

Q: Windows 2000 in cross-band network

Hi,

Im about to leap in combining our macos and windows networks but before i jump in and muff things up, is there anything i should know? The macos network has all 9.2 clients and the windows network is just a server back-bone built up of many windows 2000 servers. All the macos clients need to do is connect to the one domain controller, and use the file-server faciliries.

Cheers,

Elfyn

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.)

Excuse our ignorance, but what is a Macos network. Is that a proprietary NOS, UNIX LINUX, DOS? With a little more info, there are many experienced gurus in this site that can be of help.

Dear folk

My desktop windows 7 64 bit was working fine til I walked up yesterday and there was a red cross on the network icon!!!

Ethernet cable working fine as when i hooked it to my laptop everything is working fine , means problem lies within the desktop and nothing wrong with cable or router port.

Troubleshoot that I had done so far :

Restarted desktop 3 times, uninstalled LAN driver, connected new Ethernet cable

What else I need to check to find out what is going on ?

Thanks

Hello, recently here at work we've been having more and more trouble with the "Could not reconnect all network drives" popup when users log on to their computer. All network drives have a red cross on their icon in explorer. It's a wired network.
I've tried enabling the "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" policy under Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Logon in the Group Policy Editor, but this didn't help. Updating the driver for the network card also
didn't help.
Once a user clicks on a network drive it instantly becomes available and stays available until the next reboot. The problem is that users have got programs which rely on having connection to certain network folders. So now they first need to open windows
explorer and click on each network folder to get it connect before they can open their program.
I've noticed users getting this error more and more after changing from 3com switches to cisco 2960 switches.
Anyone any ideas? (Switching back to 3com switches isn't an option)
 
Sincerely,
 
Peter 

A:Red X (cross) over network drive on startup, Could not reconnect all network drives.

Hello, thanks for your help. I seem to have found the problem. The switches are configured for spanning tree, now after changing the port where I'm connected on to use spanning-tree portfast instead of normal spanning-tree the problem disappeared. It
seems the spanning-tree protocol causes a bit of a delay which explains why the network folders don't connect. But it also seems that the GPO
Computer
Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon.
Doesn't wait for a logical signal because if you read the GPO description I would expect it to wait for a network connection to our domain but it seems it only waits for a signal and not a domain signal, if you know what I mean.
 
Thanks again for your help.

Hi there!

So about 2 months ago, I purchased the AC53 when I moved in to a house share.
We have Virgin Media SuperHub that does both 2.4ghz and 5ghz.
When I installed it, it worked fine and connected excellently to the 5G band, a few days ago however the 5G connection disappeared off my list and now it always connects me to the 2.4ghz band.

Tried resetting my SuperHub and re-installing the drivers and software utility for the AC53 but alas it doesn't show. My phone however can find and connect to the 5G band.

I'm a bit confused as where to go from here!

Any help would be much appreciated!

My Billion BiPAC 7800VDOX Dual Band Wireless VoIP ADSL2+ Router has two bands:  2.4GHz and 5GHz.  and is wirelessly connected to my laptop OMEN by HP Laptop PC  17-w007tx.  It always shows as connected via 5GHz band only.  My laptop also shows 5GHz band only in the list of available networks;  2.4GH does not show up in the list of available networks.  It is not so in my other laptop which is also connected to the same router and that laptop shows both the bands in the list of available networks.  Thus, I can choose to connect to any of the two bands as per my choice. I have tested the router and it is working perfectly; there is nothing wrong with it.I wonder what can possibly be wrong in my OMEN laptop that it does not show both the bands which it should. At times, when I click to open the list of available networks, 2.4GHz may appear momentarily only and then disappears; thus I can not choose it for connection. I would appreciate any help to resolve this issue so that my OMEN laptop shows both the bands in the list of available networks so as to choose either one for connection.

I am trying to get a signal out in my garage at the opposite end of my router location. I am getting 1 bar and "poor" signal. I downloaded inSSIDer to analyse my signal and I notice that my "Wireless Network (5GHz a/n)" is not broadcasting anything. The checkbox for "Enable SSID Broadcast" is checked.

I have very limited knowledge of this stuff but it seems to me that if it is a dual band that I should be seeing 2 different signals, right?

I have an ancient Asus Z71A laptop (Pentium M, 915GM chipset). I have Windows 10 pro x86 running just fine on it. Yes, the old laptop is slow, but it works!

I disabled the built-in wifi and added a dual band AE3000 USB wifi adapter. For various reasons, I have my router/AP setup using a single SSID for both 2.4 and 5 GHz radios.

Is there any way to make the adapter prefer the 5GHz band? I know I can separate the SSIDs and then manually choose the 5 GHz band, but I'd like to keep the single SSID and make the adapter automatically choose the 5 GHz band when available.

I have not found a way to make this happen yet and am hopeful that I've simply overlooked a setting somewhere.

Thanks!

A:Can I make my network adapter prefer the 5 GHz band?

I'm sure you already checked your adapter options under the General> Advanced tab; however, some wireless adapters do offer a "prefer 5G" option (mine does) and that might work if available. The other thought would be to change your adapter preference to an option that is only available in 5G (like 802.11ac only). However, your router must be set to permit 802.11ac as well. Other than those two, I would rather set up a unique SSID for each band. Good luck with your search for a solution.

A:Cross-platform Network printers

Although you likely have a lot of this working, the basics for troubleshooting are:

1. Make sure you have the same IP scheme (e.g. 192.168.0.x).

2. Make sure you have the same Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS IP addresses.

3. Make sure you can ping the other computer's IP address. If this fails, just for testing, make sure you turn off XP's as well as any other firewall.

4. Make sure you can ping the other computers by name.

5. Make sure you have the same workgroup name (watch for trailing spaces)

6. For troubleshooting purposes, turn off XP's and completely uninstall any other firewall software. You can always add more complexity after you get it working.

7. With XP, make sure you have the same username and password as the person logging onto the other computers. The default setting for XP Pro is to require a password for network access.

Hi,

I have a small multi platform home network that I am trying to expand by the addition of a NAS server. I have an iMac 1TB running OS 10.8, a Windows 7 laptop 500 GB and 2 iPads operating over a wireless network with a Netgear DNG2000v2 router, currently using an Iomega 1TB Media Drive for back up. The new NAS is a LG N2A2 2TB which I have initially set up with RAID 0. My aim was to use the NAS as a central cross platform file server while synchronising files with the iMac as back up, allowing cross platform and remote access to files. I generally use iTunes for Media and Picasa for my Photos.

This is probably a straightforward bread and butter problem for network designers but my Internet research seems to be getting me more confused than illuminated.

Is there a way to backup the computers to the NAS while also allowing cross platform synchronisation, file sharing and remote access.

From what I have discovered Time Machine should be avoided because of its expansion to file the external disk size. Synctoy is not OS X compatible.

As the Windows and Mac file structures are fundamentally different what is the solution to this anomaly. Does the solution require proprietary software.

As I have 1TB of data to transfer I would like to get it right from the outset, I would be grateful for some experienced guidance or direction to a suitable source.

Thx

I successfully configured a two-PC Ethernet network linking a Win98 system with a WinXP system via a cross-over cable. Then I somehow configured the Win98 system to access the WinXP's dial-up internet connection. The Win98 shared the WinXP's dial-up connection fine and the network worked great.

Now I have broadband (DSL) on the WinXP which utilizes a Zoom ADSL X4 5651 unit and is attached via USB. The back panel of the 5651 also has an Ethernet port.

So I attempted to configure the Win98 system to access the WinXP's broadband connection and no soap; didn't work. I tried BOTH the existing network setup and then a direct connection linking the Win98 from its Ethernet port to the Ethernet port of the 5651 with the cross-over cable, and neither worked.

The 5651 instructions claim a second computer CAN share the internet connection via Ethernet if the main system uses the USB port. And like I said, the main system (WinXP) does use the 5651's USB port. So I'm thinking that my problem stems from the fact that a cross-over cable is different from a regular Ethernet cable.

So, two questions:
1) do cross-over Ethernet cables differ from "regular" Ethernet cables, and more importantly
2) can I configure broadband sharing via the cross-over network I've created like I had with my dial-up connection?

Thanks in advance.

Is it odd that, according to InSSIDer, the 2.g Ghz band signal is stronger (-45) than that of the 5Ghz band (-61)? My router is a Netgear WNDR4500. Just wondering. Thanks.

It really depends on where your wireless router is compared to your computer.

5 GHz signals are effected more by walls, distance, etc. than 2.4 GHz.

Hello, I have been facing issues with the network adapter since a long time and tried suggested solutions on various websites / forums but no luck. This keeps happening often and only solution is to reboot the laptop. The message captured from the Event logger says -  The network interface "Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265" has begun resetting. There will be a momentary disruption in network connectivity while the hardware resets.Reason: The network driver requested that it be reset.This network interface has reset 2 time(s) since it was last initialized. Any help on this one?

My wife got a HP17-g121 laptop and when trying to connect to our 5g dual band router I realized the adapter does not work with 5g and I want to replace it, what make and model will work best in doing so? Also, for some reason the 2.4g band will barely get me 25Mps download speeds where on my HP the 5g gets me closer to the 150Mps I am suppose to be getting, any reason for that?

Hi! First of all, I'm sorry if my English is bad. My laptop is running on Windows 8.1 Single Language. I just bought this about a month ago and I'm having this weird problem.

Cases that my network adapter connects to my computer:
1.) After restart
2.) When the network adapter successfully starts and then shut the computer down then start it again

Cases that my network adapter does not connect to my computer:
1.) Turning the computer on after a few hours from the last shutdown

I have done the following things:
1.) Update the driver
2.) Not allowing the computer to turn off the network adapter
3.) Uninstall and reinstall network adapter
4.) Release and renew IPv4 address
5.) Disable Proset services
6.) Disable Bluetooth driver and services
7.) Set WLAN AutoConfig to automatically start

Is this a hardware related problem or a driver problem? Do you know how to fix this?

Thanks!

Not enough information regarding which model of wireless adapter you have, what mfg & model of router/gateway. Download Speccy from piriform.com and post the URL it gives you after you run the tool.

My Wireless Network Signal Strength Icon is currently displaying a red cross as per this Screen Shot:

Despite the incorrect icon display, my Local Wireless Network is functioning perfectly.

How can I restore the Icon to display rising bars?

Assistance will be gratefully accepted, thanks.

I have a total of three computers connected on my LAN, 2 of which are Win/2000 and 1 is running 98, for some strange reason my 98 machine DOES recognize the other 2.......but this is where it gets strange, when I try to access the other 2 from my 98 machine and it ask's me for the password to access them it continues to tell me the password is incorrect, I know for a fact that the password is CORRECT, and I have no problem connecting back and forth from the Win/2000 machines using the same password. Any ideas?? Thanks.

When I attempt to add a clip art object to my form in Access XP
I received the following message: "The OLE server isnt registered. To register the OLE server, reinstall it." This only happens with Access not other applications in the suite. What is weird is some of my data bases were created in Access 97 and already had clip art applied and they converted fine. Any thoughts or suggestions.
 

A:Access XP Windows 2000 network

The clipart gallery is probably not installed properly. If I recall correctly, you need to find the location of the clipart gallery executable (the name of which escapes me at the moment), and ensure that that is the same location referred to in the Windows registry. It probably isn't. The easiest would be to install to your hard drive.

I am trying to add a new XP Home computer to my Netware wireless network. (There are no other computers, besides the base computer on the network). The base computer with the router has Windows 2000. I did have the network working earlier, but I had to replace the XP with a new one.

I mistakenly installed the Netgear wireless card before I loaded the driver, and even though I tried uninstalling the card and the driver, and then reinstalling the driver before I installed the card, I still cannot get the computers to communicate.

I have a feeling that I changed a setting that I should not have changed while trying to figure this out.

Can someone help me?

Check the "Log on automatically at system startup" box to bypass the initial logon dialog box by using the values provided in the User name and Password sections.
This setting works only for the Microsoft Networking logon dialog.
To suppress autologon, hold the shift key while the system is starting.

I'm trying to connect my Windows 2000 laptop to my network.

I have all the information (SSID, WEP/WPA Key, etc.) but I have no clue where to enter it. I tried using the Network Connection Wizard but at the end it wanted me to login with Connect Direct Connection.

I have no idea what that is let alone what username/password I'm supposed to enter.

Windows 2000 has the worst network settings ever. Is it even possible to connect this piece of junk to my wireless network? I've been trying for weeks.
 

A:Windows 2000 Connecting to Network

what kind of wireless card are you using? it should be in the card's properties somewhere to enter the SSID and such
