Q: Solved: Sound problem while on web cam - home network problem?

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.

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.)

Since my last reinstall of windows xp my computer hasn't been able to detect any computers on our home network. Looking at ipconfig it seems the netbios over tcpip is disabled which i'm assuming is the problem. Seems though when i go to the properties of Local area connection and then into the Tcip properties the wins tab that should appear allowing you to enable it doesn't appear. All i can see is the page allowing you to manually configure your ip address.

Many thanks in advance.

Ok, i have searched through the forums trying to solve this problem but what has solved other peoples problems did not solve mine. So here it is.
I just built a desktop PC and i have a laptop also. They are both in my room, both wired through a netgear router and both are running XP professional SP2 with all updates.

Now, heres the trouble.
I setup a home network so that i can get some files off my laptop onto my desktop. I can see both computers in the workgroup. My laptop can access my desktop and cruise through the folders that i have shared. But when i want to access my laptop from my desktop is gives me
\\Laptop is not accessible. You might not have permission, contact admin.
Access is denied.

What am i doing wrong?
My only guess that i can possibly have right now is that something is screwy with my laptops Windows Firewall because when I access windows firewall from control panel, on the General Tab everything is grayed out, but the option for Off is still checked.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi,
i have a small annoyance with my home network that may or may not be solveable!

I have 3 computers connected through a BT homehub 2 are desktops (wired connection) and 1 a laptop connected wireless.
Desktop 1 and laptop are running windows 7 and desktop 2 runs vista.
The little problem I have is that I can see all photos I have on desktop 1 on the laptop but not on desktop 2 although all computers show up on my network map and the printer I have on desktop 1 works perfectly from them all.
Desktop 2 (vista) doesn't show in the homegroup on the 2 win7 machines.

It's not an important problem as the main thing is that the network printer works but it's just something that's bugging me!

Thankyou for any light shed

I established a home netrwork by gpoing through Control Panel, Network setup, Networlk
Set-up Wizard, and checking "This computer connects directly to the network. Other
computers connect to the netweork through this computer". The Wizard reported that the network was established.

However, I goofed. I did not have the second computer connected (and never did connect it). I believe this network is causing me problems in other areas.

I wish to undo this "home network" and return to my original configuration. The "network Wizard" is frozen and useless right now.

Hi,

as the title suggests, I'm having some trouble setting my home network up.
My ISP provides me with a Wi-fi connection. I recieve the signal through the antenna placed on the roof of my house and have a desktop connected to it with a wire going from the antenna directly to the desktop's network card.

Recently, I've bought myself a laptop. I want to have internet connection both on my desktop and laptop. A friend of mine adviced me to buy a wireless router and bridge (same vendor, Ovislink). That friend is currently unavailable, so I hope that somebody will help me here

Did some googling on the matter and tried to set it up on my own.
I've disabled the router's DHCP and set up a wireless bridge in the router's web interface. Connected the router to the bridge by a cable (LAN - LAN ports) and a desktop to the router (LAN - LAN ports again). And, of course, antenna's cable to to bridge.
In the bridge's WDS settings, I entered security informations about ISP's wireless network and set a bridge's DHCP to client (not sure about this one).

Currently, I can connect to the router and bridge from the desktop just fine and ping them as well. But the internet connection is not working - when I look at bridge's internet connection status, it always just shows "Getting IP from DHCP server etc."

Hope that I've provided enough informations on this issue and you will be able to understand it, my English is far f... Read more

I have 6 computers at home, all running Windows XP with SP3 and the latest updates.
All the computers are connected to the internet wirelessly (802.11 a/b cards) except one computer which is connected directly with a cable to the DSL modem/router (The model is ASUS AM604G).

All computers' Workgroup are set to WORKGROUP

In the Wireless Network Connection I configured each computer with a unique IP address. For example:

IP address: 10.0.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0
Default Gateway: 10.0.0.138
Preferred DNS Server: 10.0.0.138

In each computer I shared drive C and also both of our printers which are connected via USB.

So it appears I followed all the steps to create a home network, but still I can't access the other computer when I go to My Network Places, and also when I type in "Run" \\10.0.0.6 for example, I get this message: "The Network Path Was Not Found".

How can solve this problem?

I have another problem that might be related. In the main computer which is connected directly with a cable to the DSL modem/router, there is no possibility to change the IP, because after I change the properties of Local Area Connection and give unique IP, I click OK, and when I check the TCP/IP settings again all the properties return to the previous state of "Obtain an IP Address Automatically".
Through ipconfig it tells me that my computer's IP is 10.0.0.7

I would really appreciate your help!

I have three computers in a home network, each running XP Home. I share folders between all three. Computer A can access all the shared folders on computers B & C without problems and computers B & C can access each other's shared folders without problems.

However, computers B & C cannot access the shared files on computer A. Computers B & C can see computer A's shared folders in their My Network Places, but when I try to access the folders on A from either B or C, I get an error message something like "\\Computer A\Folder X is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Access is denied".

I have tried all the usual things and suggestions from threads on this and similar forums, but the problem still persists. For example, I have re-run the network setup wizard many times on each PC; I have checked the PCs are all in the same workgroup; I use Zone Alarms Professional and have tried turning it off; I use Norton AV and have tried turning off things like Internet worm protection; etc etc.

I tried to change my DLink WBR 1310 security from unsecure to WPA. In the process, I must have messed something up. I've done a reset on my router a couple of times and tried to set up new connections, but I don't appear to have been totally successful reconfiguring the router. Also, in the process, I messed up winsock (reset it ok) and found a sticky problem where my router ISP got stuck in my LAN ISP definition. Somehow "Automatically obtain the ISP and DNS settings" checkbox got filled.
Here is where I'm at:

LAN (Ethernet) works.

In "Network Connections" I see

WAN Miniport PPPOE
Home Network -Atheros Adapter
Loc Area Net - Ethernet Connection

In "Manage Wireless Networks" I see two different profiles from settings that apparently got setup when I did the router resets and reconfigs.

I'm going to do another reset and reconfig of the router, but before I do, I want to know what to do with the settings above.

It looks I don't want to delete my Home Network in "Network Connections" - there is no delete option.

I'm thinking I should delete the two configuration settings I find in "Manage Wireless Networks."

I seem to be able to reset and reconfig the router OK from the DLInk disk, but after I get that done, I get confused about how to have my Home Network attach to that config and also how to do the "secure" WPA settings.

I've tried various 'names' in the account field but all I get is "unknown user name or bad password".

I've tried to join the desktop's homegroup from the laptop
but when I type in the password to join the homegroup it tries for about a minute then tells me to run the troubleshooter which unsurprisingly doesn't help.

All I can find is that Teredo is disabled on the desktop. Actually it seems to be completely absent and I can't find out how to install that. I've tried the "netsh interface teredo set state enabled commands" I found in this forum, but that fails with "The parameter is incorrect". I seem to recall disabling Teredo sometime ago when setting up the router, and I assumed it would be a simple matter to re-enable it, but it's nowhere to be found (I've looked in the 'hidden Network properties'). All the IPv6 stuff seems to be enabled.

I had ZoneAlarm on the desktop but have uninstalled it and I've disabled the 'Free Trial' McAfee firewall so both machines are using Windows firewall.

It all seems quite mad

Can anyone help please before I throw the laptop at the de... Read more

I am trying to set up a home network to connect my laptop and my desktop. My eventual goal here is to set up network drives for easy file exchange between the two computers. Both computers connect to my Linksys WRT54G Router wirelessly, and both connect to the Internet without a hitch. My laptop is assigned 192.168.1.100, and my desktop is assigned 192.168.1.101. My problem is, I cannot ping my laptop from my desktop, but I CAN ping the desktop from the laptop. I disabled the Windows firewall, and I have no other firewalls installed. I also installed VNC server on both computers. Using the laptop, I can control the desktop, but using the desktop, I cannot connect to the laptop.

I have even tried using a crossover cable to connect the computers, and I get the same result; I can connect to the desktop from the laptop, but not the other way around. Windows File and Printer sharing is enabled on both computers. I have used different ethernet cards and wireless cards on both computers, but the end result is always the same.

Any idea what could be going on here?

Thanks.

I'm trying to upgrade my home network to support wireless connetion with limited success...

My conifguration is:

1. Win XP SP2 computer ("big comp") used as a router, connected to ADSL modem. This computer has USB wireless NIC, nVidia MCP NIC, and realtec NIC (which connects to the modem)

2. Win XP SP2 computer (small comp) - used as a client that connects to big comp via ethernet cable.

3. Win XP SP2 centrino IBM x31 laptop, used as a client connected to big comp with built in wireless.

I bridged the LAN and the wireless connection in big comp using nViidia MCP bridging capability. i then enabled ICS on the bridge.
both comupters got 192.168.0.X addresses (bog comp was 192.168.0.1 and the dafault GW) but only the small comp got PING replay and could surf the internet.
I can work with the laptop only when there is no bridge and the LAN interface in big comp is disabled .....
i don't know what's the problem ....

1. MCP bridge ?
2. ICS lack of support ? maybe if i can use a routing software i would not have to use the bridge a do ICS on different IP subnets ?

please help ...

I would buy a router, and use it instead of the Computer it would simplify it so much, and Linksys is offering a 30$ rebate on anything 'b' if you can handle the slight lack of speed.

I'm trying to set up a network in my home so that I can share a printer. Both computers are running Windows XP. My desktop computer is connected to both the printer and the wireless modem via cables. I need to connect a laptop so that I can print from the desktop's printer. Anyone know if this is possible, and if so what I need to do? Thanks.

You need to advise if your present network is just a cross-over ethernet cable conneted direct between the two PC's, or if they each connect to an ethernet hub or switch.

If you are presently connected direct between the PC's, you need to use a (4 port) hub or switch, connecting each PC to a port. You will need to then use "straight through" or "patch" network cables, not "crossover". They are wired differently for using a hub/switch

Ok I have two computers running Vista Basic. Ones a desktop I built, the other a Dell laptop. The laptop can go in and access my desktops files. In fact I have WMP streaming my music. But the desktop cant access the laptop. It gives me this error message:

\\M3 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

Logon failure: user account restriction.Possibe reasons are blank passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions, or a policy restriction has been enforced.​
I've went into Network so many times and checked all the settings. They're all identical. I've also read the help files and none of that got me anywhere obviously.

So to reiterate: Both computers can see one another, laptop can access the desktop, desktop can't access the laptop.

Thanks for any help!

Ok guys, here's a new on for you. I have a linksys 4-port router. Up until 2 days ago it was working fine. I decided to go wireless and bought a d-link wireless router and cards for my 2 computers. It refused to function in my house so I ditched it and decided to hard wire everything. When I hook my old router up it refuses to let both computers access the net. One computer can access the router, but cant access the net and one computer can access the net but not the router. I've tried everything I can think of all to no avail. Help!

hello,

i hope u can help me with this.
i'm trying to connect vista computer to xp computer via ethernet for home networking. the xp computer is connected to the internet. for some reason the vista doesn't see the network. only wireless networks are being displayed as existing networks and options to choose from.
i understand vista should detect immediately the network to which it connects. is it true? is this a known problem? any thoughts on fixing it?

kind regards,
moshe
 

A:problem with home network

Hi

I had such a hell of a time getting VIsta to join my Domain that I gave up and scrapped it.

However you dont say how you are connecting the pc's together, is it through a router, a hub or crossover cable.

If any of these terms confuse you then you had better do a google on home networking and read any of the many sites available.

If the terms dont confuse you (i aint being funny here I dont know how PC savvy you are) then let us know so we can assist you further.

Regards

i have a home network via a netgear router. my laptop runs vista ultimate. i use my laptop in work were it connects to the work network and mapped drives perfectly.

when i come home and try to use my home network Ie watch movies etc i am asked for a user name and password. i do not know my password and i dont know how to find it. it is not the one i use to log on at the start.

funny thing is, sometimes for no reason which i can explain is it allows me onto the network !! sometimes it just works perfectly but most times it asks me for this user name and password.

can someone help me?

A:Home network problem

Call your network, they should know your password. Either that or check all the documents that came with your internet, maybe you wrote it down somewheres. Check things in here and see what you have your network set to.

Control Panel\Network and Internet\Manage Wireless Networks

Find the Network your trying to use, right click on properties and then look at security. Do you have the security code entered if so go back to properties, and then click on connect automatically when in range.

Have three computers on my network,two windows 10 and one windows7. Problem is with Remote Desktop Connection,works perfect with the windows7 computer. Can't get it to connect with the other windows10 computer,wants a user and password. There is no password on the computer? Why does it work on windows7 and not 10?

A:Home Network Problem

Remote desktop needs a username and usually a password. You can set it to remember the username and password. Also, Home versions of Windows 7 and 10 cannot be Remote Desktopped into. You may need to use VNC or Teamviewer.

Hi Guys,

I am hoping someone could help me please. Ive looked at many posts on here, and tried several things, but cant seem to get it fixed.The issue is that I cannot see the other pc's, or share anything between the 3 computers. All pc's can access the internet no problem.

I will try and describe the setup here....

I have 3 pc's at home - 2 desktops, and 1 laptop. The laptop is running vista 64(sp1), the desktops both running xp (sp3).

Here's how the network is set up.

ADSL modem > wireless router > desktop 1 (Ethernet into router)

Desktop 2 and laptop wireless.

Problem is that i cannot see or share files. On the vista laptop, I can go into network map and see all 3 computers. When I click on the icons, nothing happens.

On the 2 desktops, I cannot see any other computers or shared folders, although several folders are set to share.

I can ping all 3 computers using any pc/laptop. The workgroup has the same name - ie: "workgroup"

How do I get the network viewable and how do I share files?

Regards

I have two machines linked via a gateway switch. After running the network set on both machine they can then share files. However one of the machines keeps losing its network settings ie the other machine cannot see it in the 'my netwok places' window. If I run the network set up wizard again on the machine that cannot be seen, all is well. The other machine always seems to retain it settings. Any ideas?

Here's the thing. I got an internet connection spreaded around the house with a Wifi router. Till now I got 3 computers (all running on windows XP) connected without any speed problems or any other disturbances. 2 are connected through cable and 3rd through wifi. Now I get 4th computer (notebook running on Windows 7) which absolutely blocks the other 3. When I connect him through wifi, connection on the others get's totally frozen. I was thinking if getting faster connection would help. I am not an expert on this (made the network with a friend which is not available now) so can you please suggest me any reasonable solution? I would be very thankfull for any tips, ideas, anything...

Hello! I recently moved into a home built in 2007 and it has CAT5/CAT6 ports in 3-4 different rooms. I am very unfamiliar with how these networks work but thought it would be fairly simple to get the network live with internet. I have comcast and simply plugged an ethernet cable from a port in the back of my modem to a cat 5 jack in my home expecting the rest of the cat 5 ports in my home to then have internet access... this was not the case. I have taken a picture of the HUB of sorts from the panel in my utility closet to see if it will shed any light on the subject... Thanks in advance for your help and please let me know if I need to clarify anything further!
