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.)

when i try to add the drivers /install the printer on the laptop it wants me to connect the laptop to the printer...i am not sure that i want to establish this connection since my ultimate goal is wireless printing...

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello DonkrDjay, welcome to SF!

As a test, can you check what IP number your router gives you (through its DHCP server i hope) when it works well?
Then when it stops working... is it still the same or did you get a totally different IP for your PC?

Second, if posible, could you post snips of your router DHCP settings?

I recently had a computer that crashed and had to be rebuilt. Now that it is back up and running, Im having problems with mapping network drives. Specifically, two maps that were previously working.

If I go to my network places, all of the shares are present from all computers. I can get into all of them, except for two, both on the same computer. (on a windows XP pro) (the rebuild is also windows xp pro)

\\computer1\apps is not accessible. you may not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is Denied.

I checked the folders, both show access to everyone. I can access them from another computer. Simple file sharing is turned off on all computers. I can ping all computers, and vice versa. Netbios over TCP/IP is enabled on all computers.

any ideas?

let me know if you need more information, I can get whatever is needed.

For 2 years, My XP computer has had no problems picking up 10-20 wireless connections in my neighborhood,some i could connect to,some i could not because they were secured.

i decided to go straight , and purchase DSL.

i bought a new computer(vista) and got a westell 327 DSL modem,which is also a wireless router. The new computer is working fine, i called Verizon to set up the new computer's dsl wireless network,that worked out fine.

My old computer,the one i spoke about opening this thread, that computer immediately picked up the DSL signal from my new computer in the other room.. The signal was excellent and the name of the network WAS ON THE LIST of the dozen other wireless connections i could connect to. Problem is when i went to connect to my own DSL network, i got this error message:

"Limited or no connectivity
You might not be able to access the internet or some network resource. This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer."

I typed in the correct password,the little icon in the corner of my computer said both computers were connected, and with an excellent signal strength. Reiterating: i could still connect and go online with the other avaiable networks running the computer,but not my own.

I have an interesting problem that has been driving some pretty smart IT guys nuts. To perform my job I have to access a certain venders web pages that has security set up that I do not know all the details of. Anyway on the company PC using the company image that is a normal XP image and maintained by Comp U Com.

Any time I access this vender's web page it works fine until just after the log in screen. Once I put in my user name and password and click Ok IE just goes blank white and that's it. No error msg no nothing, its not locked up as the frame is still there and the world is turning but nothing else.

This happens on all the company PCs accessing this particular vender's web page as I went and checked. So I wanted to see if it the problem was in the PC or the network. I took the company PC home and was able to successfully log into that vender's web page from my cable modem at that house. Worked fine.

I have already added the vender web pages to the trusted zone and enabled all the active X and everything, deleted the cookies, tried some proxies etc. Every setting that can be done on the PC I have tried.

My question is what is the company network security system blocking that IE needs to work and how to resolve?


A:IE blank page problem on company network but works fine off company network

Oh and to add this I loaded FireFox and from the company PC on the company network it logs in fine but FireFox will not display the page correctly and all the buttons do not work right so that is another issue.

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.

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?

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

Alright, let me first thank anyone for their help, i've been battling this issue for the past several days, all day.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium, probably a mistake, but i have it and have some Virus bringing trouble, i know this isn't the place to fix that, but im finding its wreaking havoc everywhere and want to start fixing the damage.

Thusfar its injected itself into explorer.exe and caused explorer to crash, then it got in werfault.exe, which for the moment i have disabled, and now it has gotten into my IP set-up, when i run IPCONFIG i get an error message: "unable to contact ip driver, error code 5"

And amongst other things its hell-bent on getting my network passwords, at least i keep getting a dialogue asking when they're already stored.

I know im posting a number of problems in one place, and probably the wrong place, but will someone help?

I've been fighting this thing and i lost my last line of defence, i DID have restore points and now it apparently wiped them as well.

Thank-you for any help you can give me, i am going to go back to finding a way to rid myself of this vile problem.

2) Proceed to click View network status and tasks in Control Panel window.

3) Network and Sharing Center window will appear, proceed to click Manage wireless networks on left panel.

4) Manage Wireless Networks window will appear, and here you can see all available wireless network connection profiles. Select the profile you are trying to connect now or that you don’t use anymore, click on Remove to delete the selected profile. That's it!

5) Search for the wireless signals again and try connecting to it.

Before removing the wireless profile, make sure you have password/Network Key for the wireless connection incase if your wireless secured.

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!

A:Network problem

I am encountering a network problem.

Question 1: When I captured packets there were lots of broadcasts from users and the protocol is NBNS. Is this normal on a network.

Question 2: I have also a device (which I did not discover yet) which is sending lots of lots of broadcasts and the protocol is IPX SAP.

Can anyone help me out with my issues???

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.

sorry for my english. J'have a big problema with network and with NIC.
My NIC is Realteck PCIe GNE family controller.
every time I turn on the computer is not connected to either network or internet.
I have to "play" on the NIC by disabling checksum values.
On the next reboot I do the reverse and enter the values that enabled RX or TX RX & TX enabled or enabled. The drivers are updated and are those of the manufacturer. How can I fix this? How should set the values of the checksum?

A:problem with network and NIC


As a first cut for a solution. There is the possibility that your NIC could be bad, do you have another NIC that you
could replace it with?
Another solution would be to go to My Computer, properties, device manager and uninstall the Network Card.
Then upon reboot, it would then re-install the Network card. You could take a look at Realtec and download a new driver.

Hey I have no idea how this happened.

I was having internet connection problems so I goto 'network connections' in control panel, I right clicked and disabled internet, then unplugged modem and then restarted the computer.

After reboot I go back to network connections, but the page is blank. I cannot see any icons to click to re-enable the connection.

Im using another computer atm, broken one uses Windows XP Pro. Let me know if you need any more info.

I tried everything on the microsoft site that seems related to no avail. Only thing I havent tried is a driver uninstall/reinstall, because I do not have a CD or floppy that I can find for the network card which is a VIA rhine II fast ethernet adapter, not sure if it means anything but in device manager I have to show hidden devices to be able to see network devices, iI believe the network card is 'VIA Compatable Fast Ethernet Adapter - Packet Scheduler Miniport '. It says its working properly.

Also theres a bunch of other options besides the 'VIA Compatable Fast Ethernet Adapter - Packet Scheduler Miniport ', like 'Direct Parallel Port', 'WAN Miniport (IP)', 'WAN Miniport (PPOE)', etc. On this computer the network devices are not hidden and theres only 1 thing listed under network devices.

I am not an expert but not a novice about networking. I have set up networks before but now I am stumped. My son has a older Dell desktop running XP with a Netgear router. He can get on the network with his new laptop running Win7 and I can get on with my Gateway running Vista. The problem is that none of the computers are seen when you click on network on any computer.I have set up file sharingon all computers and checked everything I can think of. I tried the free 7 day trial of a Cisco Network magic and was able to see and access the other computers with it. I just don't want to pay 30 dollars for something that I should be able to do myself. Any ideas would be welcomed. Thanks

Error code 10 most often is caused by missing our invalid/corrupted drivers, have you tried uninstalling the current drivers, rebooting and then reinstalling from a fresh source ?, perhaps from the motherboard supplier for your machine.

I have a network of 3 computers at home. The way it is set up is there is a main Origo router, and an Origo wireless hub the connects the the router through Ethernet. There are two laptops the connect wirelessly, and a standard PC that connects by Ethernet to the hub. The all talk to each other over the network and there is no problem there.

The problem is that only one of the laptops (my laptop) is allowed full access to the Internet. Mine loads any web site and any program can connect to the web. On the other two, program's like MSN messenger cant connect, and they cant connect to windows update. Most programmes are fine, but things like guild wars, or MSN don't connect.

I don't know why, I made the network myself, there are no IP address conflicts, and the Internet is fully accessible (shown by my laptop having no problems).

I have made the Internet settings the same on all the PC's (going by my laptop), and it didn't solve it, that is why I think it is the network.

What setting do I need to change on the router to give the other two PC's full web access?

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?

I've got the same problem on several computers. I've installed the SP2 and the system worked very fine.
But when I'm having lots of network traffic, my computer reboots again. I got an error message: 0x1000007e

I couldn't find helpful stuff to get my problem fixed. I also contacted my network card vendor (Marvell, I've got a Yukon Gigabit Ethernet onboard), they gave me the advice: I should go back to SP1.. because their drivers may have some problems with SP2

Do you have any solutions for me? My company will move on to SP2. On 01/01/2005 they all want to use SP2 and me and my co-workers will have lots of problems..

Thanks for your help!


A:Problem with SP2 and network

Most unusual. I have that same integrated ethernet on my file server running SP2 and I am not having any problems. Have you tried downloading and installing the latest drivers? You might have a corrupt driver.

This may be a stupid question, but as the slogan says, theyre the easiest to answer.
At my work there are several computers already on the network. All run on windows 200 except for mine. I'm running windows 98. Would there be any conflict if Im put on the server or is windows backwards compatible with a network?

I just don't want to have to call the guy and tell him he has to wait longer. (the sob didnt show up for 3 weeks when he was supposed to connect us)

I don't know where else to look for an answer - hope you guys can help. We just changed my wife's laptop network settings. She used to have it set to log on to a domain for her server at work. When XP started, it would prompt her for the server name, username, and password. She no longer needed to be logged on to the domain to access files so we changed her settings so that she could use our home network more easily and not have to connect to her server (which caused her computer to run really slow). We copied her XP user profile for the domain and created a new user profile and pasted all the info. Everything works great except that now she can't access her ACT database.

Before we made changes, she'd open up ACT and a login screen would popup. She'd just cancel it and use the program. She didn't use a username/password. However, now, after the changes, when she cancels the login screen, it just keeps popping up. It won't allow her to use the program without logging in. And she never set up a login, so she has nothing to refer to. Why would this happen, and how would you get around it? All of her business contacts are in there, which makes this very bad. I'm not sure why network settings would cause this to happen, as her database is stored on her computer, not on the work server. She shouldn't need to login to her server to access it. Any ideas?
