Preferred Solution: remote device or resource wont accept the connections

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.)

You are successfully connected to a wireless network, but cannot access the internet? If this is the case is the wiireless network yours (your router)?

Do you have internet access with an ethernet connection?

My desktop computer with Windows 7 started giving me this message about a month ago, and I could not get internet access. I used my cell phone to google the issue. I tried all of the recommended fixes (checking proxy settings, etc) but it still did not work. I did a system restore and got back on the internet, BUT, it continues to happen again every day or so, and again I have to do a system restore. Could anyone tell me WHY this is happening and how to fix the problem? Thanks.

Hello, I've been having this problem where it says "The remote device or resource won't accept hte connecion and it's extremely annoying, sometimes it's there, sometimes it is not.

Would appreciate some help restoring Internet connection.

Did an install of Windows 7, and, at first, had Internet access. Installed an AV (Panda), MBAM, Windows Updates, and also tried to upgrade IE8 to IE11. Have no clue what borked the connection.

Keep getting:
"The remote device or resource won't accept the connection."
"Connection with server cannot be established."

In Device Manager there was a Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface with a yellow flag. I removed it and restarted, but, it was not there after the reboot, so, it did not re-install.

Thanks for your help.

A:No Internet access, remote device or resource won't accept connection

Marie have you run the Network Connection Troubleshooter?

Did you install the wireless driver from the PC maker's Support Downloads webpage?

Can you plug in by ethernet cable to download that driver and install? In addition Check for Updates to install any other Important or Optional Updates, as other drivers or patches may be needed for this.

A search for the error here suggests resetting IE and also says spyware may be involved.

If you want I can connect via TeamViewer to go over and and finish setting up the install for you. Install at all defaults and PM to me the ID and pw. I am here til midnight PST tonight and all day tomorrow.

Since updating to Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit (latest version), in File Explorer listed under Computer I see my other PC's but I no longer see devices like my Synology NAS etc. All PC's and devices are connected using ethernet cables via switches.

The devices still appear in File Explorer on my other Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit (latest version) PC under Computer so the problem seems to be on the first PC rather than my Asus router.

I just tried putting the name of the devices (\\diskstation etc) in the address bar of File Explorer and with one of the devices I got error 0x80004005 so I ran the trouble shooter and got this error:-

Problem found

Detailed Information
The device or resource (FOXSAT-HDR) is not set up to accept connections on port "The File and printer sharing (SMB)".

I've tried disabling AVG virus software, Windows Firewall and my Asus Router firewall but it makes no difference

Well I'm on Windows 8 and my computer has been running fine until yesterday. Randomly at around 8:00, my internet shut itself and it wouldn't work. I tried resetting the router and such but nothing worked. My computer can connect to the internet connection,
but when I boot up Google Chrome it will not work. So I did some troubleshooting and eventually it said this "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection". And it's not only my internet browser that won't work. Other apps like Skype
won't connect either. After looking at another thread, I tried resetting the settings on Internet Explorer and changing the Proxy thing but nothing worked. Someone also suggested downloading Hitman, but that was stupid considering I couldn't even connect to
the internet. I had Windows Defender scan my computer and it said there was nothing wrong. So I'm not sure what is up. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

A:Cannot connect to Internet. "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection"

Make sure other device connected to your internet don't have similar issue
is there any changes before this issue happen? install, reinstall, windows update, HW changes, router setting or environment changes
just try at safe mode with networking, if its fine at safe mode with networking, than something to do with 3rd party software, antivirus, firewall ect. Try to restore your PC using restore point
if this issue also persist at safe mode, its considering driver or hardware failure (try to update driver, reinstall or run basic TS regarding WLan issue)

Hello and thanks for reading,

I have the oddest problem here at work. I have a brand new Latitude E5530 that would not connect to the internet, but would connect to our LAN. We had the motherboard replaced by Dell, but a few weeks later, while a download of the free AVG anti-virus program was being installed, the same thing happened again where we could not connect to the WAN, but the LAN was fine.

I formatted the HDD, reinstalled the OS (7, Pro, 32bit), installed all the factory drivers and still the same thing.

This only happens when I'm at work. We have multiple laptops of the same make/model/OS that are working perfectly, but not this one (at least not for long)

One thing that does allow me to connect to the WAN. I have a LinkSys USB Ethernet Adapter. There is no Windows 7 driver for this, so I've used the Vista 32 bit driver when installing the software and I can connect no problem.

I've also had one other computer give me fits about accessing the WAN at my job. This unit (I believe it's a Dell optiplex 780) had XP installed and would occasionally lose WAN connection, but a reboot would take care of the problem. The problem grew to where more reboots were necessary until one day nothing could be done to connect to the WAN (once again, the LAN connection was fine). I ended up replacing that computer. Recently however, that computer also was having problems connecting to the WAN, even after removing/reinstalling the NIC driver. I used another of the LinkSy... Read more

Hi all,
Back again with another Windows 8 problem My Dad's HP computer with Windows 8 was all working fine up until yesterday, but now for some reason, it can't access the Internet, even though it is connected (my laptop is connected to the same network and can access the net with no issues). I tried running a troubleshooter and I got a message saying "Remote device or resource won't accept the connection" though it didn't offer any solutions. I have tried resetting both the computer and the router and it has not made a difference. He has Kaspersky anti-virus and to my knowledge, has not installed/uninstalled any software recently, so I can't think of anything that would have caused it.

The only thing I could think of was that maybe the cable running from my router, through the roof to their computer in the other room may have somehow failed or become damaged, but in that case I would have thought it wouldn't be able to find the network at all (it still says it is connected to the Internet). Since testing this would involve climbing up into the roof etc and both I and my old man have dicky knees, I was hoping someone might have suggestions for what could be causing the problem, or how I might be able to fix it with (relative) ease. Thanks in advance

(P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong section or has already been answered, if this is the case, please just point me in the right direction)

A:"Remote device or resource won't accept the connection"

I encountered a problem with my internet connection and I believe it may have to do with DNS. I can't access the internet at all on my laptop, neither Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Firefox work. I ran a diagnostics test and received this message: "The remore device or resource won't accept the connection." More details state that "the device or resource (www.microsoft.com) is not set up to accept connections on port 'The World Wide Web service (HTTP).' I've searched through many forums and tried countless possible solutions:

Resetting my computer
Power cycling the modem
Resetting Internet browser settings
Flushing the DNS via cmd
Releasing and renewing the IP address (Note: cmd is unable to renew the IP because it fails to connect to the DHCP server)
Disabling Windows Firewall
Checking for proxy settings that may be checked

I'm using a wired connection that goes directly to the modem, no router. An interesting thing to note is that I am able to connect to the internet via mobile hotspot on my Android phone. I've already contacted my ISP (Comcast) and they believe it's a computer related issue but through my trials, this doesn't seem to be the case. It looks like a DNS issue.

I know this was kinda hidden on Vista too, but in Win7 I cannot even find it!

I really hope they put this in the beta and that I am just blind and not seeing it.

I just purchased a used laptop. Runs great, love it. Right up until I try to go online. It came with both Explorer 9 & Safari. It is running Win 7 Home Premium. It is an Acer Aspire 5732Z. It says It is connected to my WIFI & the wireless indicator is on. I get Safari's version of the same message I get from Explorer. The error message reads "Explorer cannot display the webpage". Connection Diagnosis comes up with "The device or resource will not accept the connection". The laptop was not cleaned out very well, it appears only personal files were deleted. The last thing done on it was update downloads. (I know this because the battery was dead when I got it & the first thing it did when plugged in was "resume" windows & install updates. The computer I am on is old & SLOW & dying slowly & (for me) painfully. I can't afford to ship it back & take the 20% loss, but I NEED to be able to get on the net to work. Any ideas? Questions? Suggestions?

Once i click on "OK", Then it shows my login avatar, with a password box, and upon providing my password credentials it returns to the screen above, so I know I'm getting through to the correct machine.

If I attempt to merely connect to the machine w/o providing a username, then I get no login prompt whatsoever.

I bought a Asus g71gx in September and it came with Vista Home Premium. I got the upgrade for windows 7 hp but it does not have the users and groups option. So I put a copy of Professional and entered the key from the box. But when I tried to activate it, it said 'this key cannot be used'. Can anyone help me fix this?

System Specs: RAM: 6 gb

HDD: 2x320 gb

PROCESSOR: Intel Quad Core @ 2.00 ghz


OS: Win 7 Professional x64 Unactivated

A:It wont accept my activation key

You have to use an upgrade version of Windows to use an upgrade key ... you cant use it for a full version...

I am trying to move my system to an SSD (sandisk plus 240GB) it's a SATA 3 device.  I cloned the drive and can't get it to boot up so I look further and see that when it is installed the SSD is not even visible in the bios.  However if I install the same SSD in another working (non HP) laptop then it can be see it in the bios on that computer.  Is there some restriction on SATA 3 devices on this HP 655 laptop?  It is an Insyde H20 bios.   I have set boot order, legacy mode and other bios settings but the relevant point here is that the drive is not even being seen by the bios in the HP laptop. Thanks

After updating to IE7 (from microsoft) why will the "run once" page,which you get firstly, not accept my settings?

A:Why wont IE7 accept my settings?

Perhaps there is some corruption in IE. Go to Start>Run then type cmd, click OK. In the command window type sfc /scannow, a progress bar will appear, wait for it to finish then reboot your computer. This is the standard fix for many IE problems and is worth a try.

this has been driving me bonkers for the last few days, I check forums and websites but have not found any answers. I have a laptop with XP Pro on which I regularly update my password, the ctlr+alt+del > change password way.

When I tried this ealier last week I got a message saying (translating from Dutch to English): my password must be 0 characters, cannot repeat any of my 0 passwords, must be at least 0 days old.

This is totally new to me, I changed the password before without issues, so my search on the web lead me to gpedit.msc, where I select windows settings, security settings, account policy. There are several entries here and they show (again translated from Dutch to English):

maximum password time: 0
min password time: 0
min password length: 0
remember old passwords: 0
complexity: disabled
something about coding: disabled

so as far as I can tell there is not password policy however when I change my password there seems to be. I have played with this a bit and set complixty to enabled, min length to 6 and tried to change it to AbCd12! which should work as its >6 long, uses caps, lowercase and numbers, but again the same message, so I set it back to how it was, 0's and disabled.

I also tried net user <username> <newpassword> but getting the same message
the account has admin rights but I logged in as admin and tried to change the password that way for the specific account but again the same message

So right now I am totally lost, ... Read more

A:Solved: XP Pro SP3 - wont accept any new password

I am not certain I am on the right line here.
Firstly, gpedit is GROUP policy Edit and has no connection DIRECTLY with the normal user/admin/guest password.
Retunring to the cmd "net user akm-bl" - realising of course it is not that. This should provide as in my screenshot

To save me a lot of typing if you instruct the cmd
Type 'net user /HELP' for more info.
You will then see what each command is and what is achieved.

However I would recommend you type
"control userpasswords2" - start, run .
as if I am correct you will find what you want there.
On the advanced tab click the advanced button on Advanced user management and explore there in Local users and groups.

i have lost everything, pictures, files, i know there there but how do i get to answer my question as i am admid

A:Computer wont accept my password

Hello Colette, and welcome to Seven Forums.

When you do a system restore it will also restore the user accounts' passwords to what they were at the time the restore point was created.

If you remember what it was then, you should be able to enter that password to log on.

Hope this helps,

Hi done it loads of times before but this time it doesnt want to let me set up email adderss, i now ive done it right(followed virginmedia) just to be sure.
What else could it be???
I get this:-
There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'pop.ntlworld.com (2)', Server: 'pop.ntlworld.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR invalid user name or password.', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

Under the 'Server' heading, is the secure logon checked or unchecked?

Under the 'Advanced' heading, uncheck the secure connection there also for incoming and outgoing.

I am needing photo's off my phone onto my laptop, so I am trying to plug in with the USB connecter and it is saying Power Surge on Hub Port, I really need pictures off my phone asap because I have an assigment due in a few days which need to include theses photos!! I've tried troubleshooting need help!!

Also I thought maybe it was just my phone and/or my phones connecter, but I tried a friends phone and connecter and came up with the same thing. Really need help asap.

A:Laptop wont accept my phone. HELP!!

It sounds like your USB port is damaged, I had the same issue on my old desktop after the front ports got damaged. If you don't have a port on the opposite side of the laptop I'd recommend transferring the files onto a different PC then burn them to a disc to get them onto your laptop. Don't persist in trying to use the USB port/s as there is a chance of causing more damage.

Hi folks!

I've got a Windows XP Corporate Edition SP2 on a machine with processor Pentium 4, 1024MB memory a Plextor PX-716A DVD Burner and three hard drives (two of them are WDC, the one is SAMSUNG, all of them 7200RPM). I also got a TV-Out Video card (NVidia GF2 MX400) and two sound cards (one integrated, and another PCI).

I use the system basically for video editing, I got Ulead MediaStudio Pro 7.x, I know it's quite old, but the only video editor which can be called professional instead of adobe and other crap, that are terribly slow and lacking many basic features.

Nowadays I noticed a kind of weird thing. I started playing a movie on the secondary monitor and have set the priority of the media player to 'Realtime' which ensures, that under no circumstances would it be bothered by other applications taking the resources. On the desktop (Primary monitor) I started Ulead MSP, the video editor application. At first it was going smoothly, but after a while when I was seeking in my project footages, the system started jamming (both applications did this).

As I know, the priority setting in Windows XP is to tell the system which application should be given more resources at the expense of the others. So I'd have no problem if only Ulead MSP had been stalling, but both apps did, so is the priority setting for nothing?

Before I forget: the movie was being played on the secondary screen was running from DVD. The DVD Drive is jumpered to be MASTER, so it has priorit... Read more
