Network Problem

Q: Network Problem

Hello This is my first time posting and my last resort.  I'm having an issue with connectivity on my vista ultimate desktop. My wifi works fine but my desktop computer keeps losing connection at different times.
 I have tried the following Changed the modem
                                          Changed the router
                                          Changed all the cables
                                           Reset the Winsock
                                           Flushed DNS Cache
                                           Renew Refresh
                                           Changed the Sleep settings in the network properties
                                          Turned off autotuning
                                           Changed the Flow Control
When i go to the little icon in the notification area and diagnose it constantly says found a problem that cannot be repaired automatically but when i diagnose the lan in the network folder it says no problem found Try and reset the network. I have done so and this does not work.
I've taken it to a computer guy they can't seem to see anything wrong.They gave me an old network adapter and I could not get the drivers to load. Is this possible it was an old card for an older system
Pro 200 WL. Took the card back out may need to try again with a newer card. Someone had told me that it's possible vista has a fail safe when the download is to much it shuts down called flooding or something. i don't know if thats true.
Any assistance on this matter would be appriciated before i go and buy a new network card. Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

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?

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 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, 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.

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 am using a cablet connection with my Zyxcel P2602 HWT modem. The modem/router is provided by my internet provider. It also supports a wireless connection.

When i start my computer both the connections is fine. After a while though the cabled connection is said to be unidentified. It works as a local connection, but has no internet access. When i run the diagnoses for the connection it again recognize the network and its working fine for a while until the same happens.

I tried upgrading the driver without luck. The version now says Atheros AR8121/AR88113/AR88114 PCI-E ethernet Controller (NDIS6.20
Driver date: 11.06.2009

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Her laptop at home is connected directly to the internet, but they will be setting up a wireless router also. We both use Vista.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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?

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

A:Network Problem.!

What's the exact make/model of the modem and the router.

Try this procedure.
Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on. The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.

I used to just set with XP the ip to a static of ( Imac on and Subnet and it all worked . Now I get unidentified network . Also I dont know what to put in preffered DNS or default gateway .

My computer has a bit of an annoying problem. Sometimes when I boot up my computer it shows no Ethernet connection to my PC. But if I remove the AC Power while the PC is on and boot it up again the Ethernet connection shows up?

Why is this?

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.

I have two adapters and one i am not able to get connected. When i try to connect it says connection failed. when I check ipconfig/all it shows cable disconnected. I would like to use this adapter to connect to my other computer. Is this ok to configure a home network in this way?

I used to have my network set-up with a speed stream router but i lost my connection a few weeks ago and could not resolve the issue so was looking for an alternative way to network my computers. One is 2000 and the other xp. The 2000 has the additional networking card. I was hoping to use this to connect to the Xp card....will this work?
One more thing to mention. I'm getting a hard-drive warning on startup of the 2000. I know i need to replace this...the sooner the better. My problem is this. The cd burner is on the xp and i've lost my network connection and I need to back up my data. Please Help!!

XP...Hard wired to router. After connecting to my home page, I can't load ANY other pages (sites). Get error message saying "reset". All other machines on system working fine. No ip conflict messages. Tried releasing the ip address and renewing with no better results. Help!!!

A:Network Problem

I think it would be easier to diagnose if you can give us the rest of the error message. Or is the message only just "Reset". If it is I have no idea what that is.
Are you able to ping a site like google.com or yahoo.com? If you are able to then your connection is fine.
Try restarting, but im not sure if this will help and you might have already done this. lol.

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

I'm going to try to explain this as best as I know how....I'm an idiot and I downloaded a program that caused me to lose ALL of my valuable information on my computer. The program is called "BHT" and I downloaded it from MajorGeeks.com. It is supposed to be a "large collection of diagnostic and repair tools for the computer" Unfortunately, I clicked one of the tools which took my log in name off my computer which caused me to not be able to log on to my computer.

I tried to reformat the computer but when the reformat was complete, all my information was LOST...well, not completely lost, the information is still on the computer but I can't gain access to it because it is on another network (?) which completely baffles me.

Someone PLEASE tell me that there is a way that I can recover my information because if I don't I'm in HUGE trouble with THOUSANDS of dollars of information lost.

I could really use some help on this one, PLEASE!!! If there is anyone out there who is familiar with this type of problem I would greatly appreciate the assistance.

I have a very weired network problem , i really don't know what's wrong , I have a network that contains 5 clients and 1 server , all of them are using windows xp professional , including the server , they are connecting to a switch and there is a software for internet sharing on the server .

Everything was working perfect since today morning when suddenly the internet disconnected from the client pc's and they couldn't access it again , i've checked the internet sharing software and found that everything is fine , also checked the cable and found that it's also fine .

then i tried to ping a client pc from the server and found no response , tried to ping the server from the client pc and found a response , also clients can't ping each other , it shows the request time out message .

so now , every client can ping the server , but the server can't ping them ! , also they can't ping each other .

but when i click network neighborhood i can browse the files on the clients machines without any problem .

can you please tell me how can i fix this or what's the problem? the internet sharing software that i'm using is called allegrosurf .

please help !

A:network problem

Not being able to ping the machines sounds like a firewall issue, 99% of the time, that's the reason for failure to respond to a ping. Perhaps you can tell us what firewall products you use all around?

Can you access the Internet from the server? I'm not familiar with allegrosurf, so I'm not sure about configuration, but it seems that would be the place to start with a common failure.

Do i need to enable/disable anything on my router or modem? I can post modem logs if needed and my router is the netgear n300 modem is motorola surfboard.

what security suite do you have or ever had on the PC

lets see the following when its all working fine and then repeat all the tests when it fails

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

I have a Dell E-520 (Vista Home Prem.) & ,and a Dell laptop (Win-98 2nd Ed) on a home network. I have the password set the same on both.
Both system sees each other on the network but when the 98 system ask for a password it will not accept the passwords I have entered for both computers. I assume the passwords that are needed are the ones used for Vista log-on. Is that correct?
I have selected "Client for MS Networks" on the 98 system.
The Vista computer displays everything from the 98 machine fine, but I cannot get past the password on the 98 system.
I assume some of you guys have long past forgot Win 98, but hope there are some young folks who still have good memories available.
I know asking password questions on any forum is a no-no but in this case I am not trying to crack one, just trying to get one to work.
Any advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks Russ

Okay, I know setting up a network in XP Pro is so simple even a fool can do it, but I'm having a problem.

I have 2 new computers and a 3rd hooked to a router. The first new one was hooked up to everything almost from when I turned it on, the second is another matter. It can go out to the web but can't see the other computers, it only gets as far as the MSHOME NETWORK, can't see the others.

I can see it from the other computers but can't see onto it, I get and error meesage "...not accesible...might not have permission ... contact admin to see if you have access permision...metwork path not found"

I've done this sorta thing before and never had such a hassle, what could be wrong? The cable to the router was used this morning with the old computer and worked fine.

It's almost 4 am here, this is making me crazy ...

One: Make sure that whatever account you are logging into exists on all machines (both password and account must be indentical)

Two: Make sure that account has access to whatever you are trying to share.

Three: Make sure that, if you enable a firewall, you allow access to you local network (i.e., the other computers on your network)

A:problem with network/ip

your IP is assigned by your ISP, can't change it for the most part. Unless you switch NICs or go to a USB connection.
First try to see what happens withthe firewall removed, then readd the firewall if that doesn't prove to be the case.
that would be a good place to start.

I recently set up a home network between my windows XP computer and my win 98 computer. I had a little problem getting it to work with microsoft's network setup wizard. Specifying the IP address instead of letting it autodetect helped, but I still have a problem with this network.

On my win98 machine, whenever I go to network neighborhood and try to access my win XP machine I get an error message, "//Athlon is not accessible. The computer or sharename could not be found. Make sure you typed it correctly, and try again.

If I try to access the win98 machine from my Win XP machine then everything appears to work ok.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hi, I think i have a problem with networking now.
Problem is that internet browser(Both Google Chrome and IE 8) stop sometimes.

Well, actually it does work but orb keep circling around for chrome and "Waiting for X" for IE 8.
Even i wait for several minutes, web page doesn't show up.(White screen)
But when i refresh for SEVERAL times(not once), it works.

This thing started to happen after i used proxy( i do not know for sure. It could be VPN) program called "Freegate"
I deleted this program soon after i found this problem happening.

This could be problem when i'm filling some kind of form out. And i would have to do it again...

I would appreciate any helps.

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
