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.)

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

When I try from the main PC to click on the lap, it tell me accessibilty denied. When I go to the laptop, I can see all the shared files on the main and #2 pc, I can copy files to those files from the laptop.

I established a home netrwork by gpoing through Control Panel, Network setup, Networlk

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.

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,

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."

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

My problem is that when I use my dial-up connection with IE5.5, after about 1-2 mins my connection sort-of-stalls. If I am pulling in a web page, the page will partially load and then halt for 30-60 seconds. Then the page will continue loading. During the "halt" if I attempt to type any characters in the "address" bar of IE5.5, the keypresses are v-e-r-y sloooow (as if there was a 1 sec keyboard typing delay). I also opened up Notepad and the keypresses were also very slow at the same rate as IE5.5.

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.

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,
I am having nightmares getting my 2 pc's to connect using a crossover cable.

One is on XP Home (No service packs) and the other is XP home SP2. Both have the network cards installed and are working ok.

I have used network wizard to create the network. Each PC has its own shared folder but cannot see the other pc.

i have set up the ip address as per many tutorials (ie IP address 192.168.0.x and subnet 255.255.255.0) but i am still having problems.

1 PC can ping the IP address of the other, but not the name, the other pc cant ping the other pc at all.

All firewalls are disabled as well


Any ideas how to get this working
Thanks in advance!
 

A:Home network problem

it may be that you have different workgroups.. go to system properties under control panel. then goto computer name. in there it will say workgroup: (xxxxxx)
make sure that both pcs are on the same workgroup. it is not essential but its easier to use the network then..

also if you just want to copy stuff over from one computer to the other.. you could goto start - run - and type in the following:

\\192.168.0.x

x being the number for the computer you wish to connect to. if you can ping the computer you should be able to connect to it.

you should also ensure that simple file sharing is enabled on both pc's. to do this goto my network places - view network connections - connection properties and select/check file and printer sharing for windows..

after all is done, it should work, else repost here...

Not too sure what has happened here , I have 4 computers all with ubuntu/ win 2000 pro dual boot on a wired network , and have no problem sharing files with windows but as soon as I try to transfer files in ubuntu with gFTP I run into problems , and can only seem to access 1 computer . When I had ubuntu 6.06 & 6.10 I could see all my computers using gFTP and transfer files from one to another but now with all the computers on Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty I can only seem to access one computer , but in a round about way I can transfer files from one to another , but it involves a lot of work . Can anyone perhaps see what I am doing wrong . I would like to be able to see and transfer files like I did previously . I can ping from one to another with no problems , just cant seem to use files transfer using gFTP .

I hope I have explained enough , probably not , but I will try and give more information if I can , cant seem to get much help from the ubuntu forums

Not to sure if this is in the right place , or should be in the linux area

Thanks

I have two computers, mine and my daughters. I installed a lan card in hers and i have an onboard lan card. I connected them up and also connected the cat 5 cable. both are showing as 100mpbs and the lights are green where they connect. I used the network wizard to configure everything and as far as I could tell, everything was ok. However, she is not connected to me. she has no folder share,printer or internet connection abilities even though I agreed to the sharing of these in the network wizard. I don't know where I have gone wrong. I have retried the network wizard about 5 times and still no joy. Could anyone shed any light? I am not a novice when it comes to computers but this has me stumped. I have read quite a few guides on how to connect and I have followed them to the letter but most are configured for more difficult setups than mine, ie routers etc. Plesse post if you can help me, thank you.

Hi,

I'm new to Windows 7 and networking but have an ASUS wireless laptop connected to my home PC by a Netgear ADSL modem/wireless router (DG834GVv2). Both systems are running Windows 7 - 32 bit and can both access the internet. They are both in the same Home Group and have everything ticked under the "Share libraries and printers" options.

I also have a 3rd PC hooked up to the network which is running Windows XP so I've given all 3 machines the same Workgroup name (which is a different name to the Home Group name). It would be good to have the Windows XP computer networked as well but that isn't a priority, I mainly want the wireless laptop to file share with the Windows 7 PC.

The laptop can see the PC on the network and the PC can see the laptop but when I try to access either of them I get the "Windows cannot access \\" error message and something about check the spelling of the name. When I run the network trouble-shooter it says "Your broadband modem is experiencing connectivity issues" and the Problems Found are "The connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken".

I don't really understand this error because as I said they can both access the internet ok and see each other on the network.

Anyone got any ideas what the problem might be because I rang Netgear for help and they wanted to charge me $159 to sign up for one years support.

Hi, I have exactly the same problem.

I searched the whole internet for solutions (dutch and english) but nothing has given me a solution yet.

One desktop and one laptop.
Both connected through cable on router.

Homegroup set up just fine, but then the fun(not) starts.

On my laptop i can see the desktop listed in the homegroup.
I see 3 folders (images, music, video) but when i click on them nothing happens.
On my desktop I can't see any computer listed.
It says that there are no other computers in the homegroup.

If i go through network, I can see both computers on both machines.
On the desktop I can see all shared folders and files on both system.
On the laptop I can see the desktop, but when I click it, it gives me the "Windows cannot access \\"-message.

I tried recreating homegroups, manually sharing folders, disabling all firewalls, checking homegroup and peer services, giving the workgroup the same name, giving the home network the same name

I Hope somebody can help us with this problem.

Thanks in advance.

My main machine has XP Home. This connects to the internet via Broadband. It is connected via a crossover cable to my ancient W98SE machine.

From the XP machine I can see everything on the W98. I can transfer files in either direction. I can delete files from W98.

The W98 machine connects fine to the internet. It can also send & receive e-mail. However if I try to access files on the XP machine, (i.e. by clicking Network Neighborhood/XP's name) I get "Enter Network Password". There is no Network Password!

I have the Guest Account enabled on XP.
I log on to both machines with the exact same user name and password, and No, this password is rejected if I enter it for the Network Password.
I have tried disabling XP's Firewall (ZoneLab Pro) but it makes no difference.
File sharing is enabled on both machines, and I even tried sharing the root of XP's C-drive without success.

I am almost certain the problem lies in W98. There must be some way of disabling this Network Password demand.

Any suggestions, please?

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.

A:Home Network Problem

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

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

Craig

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.

Hi.

I have a weird problem. My laptop (XP home, wireless) and my desktop ( XP pro, connected with a wire ) are both connected to my router ( Belkin Pre N ).

I can see each computer on the network and share files but when I want to listen to music that is on my desktop with my laptop it can't see every files in the directories. I often miss the first 3 song of the albums. And in other directories where I store pictures, video or text my laptop can't see any file. It opens the directory and there is no error message but the directory seems completely empty.

I have a third desktop computer that has Xp Media Center Edition 2005 also connected to the router and it sees all the files that are on my first desktop without a problem.

Thank you for helping me!

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!
 

A:In-Home Cat 5 Network Problem

Read other 7 answers
RELEVANCY SCORE 58.4

All,
I am trying to directly connect my two PCs (a desktop and a laptop) both running Win XP Home SP2 using a crossover Cat 5 cable.
I have done the following:
1. Connected the two PCs.
2. Allowed Win XP Home to set IPs using Automatic private IP configuration.
3. Set up same workgroup name and users on both PCs.
4. I have enabled Client for Windows Network, File and Printer sharing on both PCs.
5. I have shared some folders on both PCs.
6. I have specified the computer names and IPs in the system32\drivers\etc\hosts file on both PCs.
7. NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled (though it should not be needed in this case).

Now, I can ping one pc from the other (both ways) and do it only after COMPLETELY disabling the firewall on both.

I am having the following problems:
1. I can't see one PC from the other when I browse Network Neighborhood. Only the same on which I am browsing shows up. It happens on both PCs.
2. I can use net view command from my desktop to see what is shared on the laptop, but I cannot do the same on the laptop i.e. I cannot view what is shared on the desktop.
3. Executing both the commands net view \\<name> and net view \\<IP> on the laptop where <name> and <IP> are the name and IP of the desktop, fail with error message "System Error 53 has occured. The network path was not found."

Please provide some suggestions to solve the above problem.
Note: I am able to connect to the Internet from both PCs.

Thank You.
Sanjib.
