Preferred Solution: problem accessing certain webpages from networked computer

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.)

A: problem accessing certain webpages from networked computer

Do you have the latest updates and service packs for IE6 on your laptop as well as your desktop? Run Windows update to be sure.

Please go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/, and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log as a .txt file, and copy and paste its contents into your next post.

Most of what it lists will be harmless, so do not fix anything yet. I don't know how to read it p) but others here do and may find something that could be causing this.

I have 2 computers, using XP 32 bit, networked directly connected(CAT5 cable to USB adapter to USB port), driver installed for adapter. I can access the files/printer just fine when both computers are on, When one is off, either one, I can not access. Is there anyway to access files and printers sharing while it is turned off? If so, how secure will it be?

To access the root of the drive you would need to go into D: >properties> Security tab> Edit button > Add check marks for the required permissions for the Authenticated User, Apply, OK etc.

You would also need to allow for sharing of the D drive through the Sharing tab> Advanced Sharing button, click the box to share the drive then hit the Permissions button, add check marks to the Everyone share, hit apply etc.

Ok this has been an ongoing thing now for about 3 weeks and is starting to really annoy me. I am running on a Dell Demension 8300 w/ Windows XP. About 3 weeks ago I started having problems going to sites such as microsoft.com, ebay.com, dell.com (it would just give me "Page cannot be displayed". These are just some of the sites I cannot access). Not only can I not access microsoft.com but I cannot access any part of it such as, I cant get any automatic updates becuase my computer cannot communicate with any part of microsoft, although my connection is stable. I have tried many things to correct this. I have reloaded and formatted my whole hard drive and I still come up with the same problem. I have also contacted my ISP and they said there is nothing wrong with my connection. I also have four roomates that live with me and they can access the webpages that I cant. I have also tried to connect thier ethernet cable to my computer and I STILL get the same problem. If anyone can help me with my situation it would be much appreciated becuase I am totally stumped.

Can't figure out why I can print to printer from my upstairs laptop, but not from my downstairs PC, when both computers and the printer are on the same wireless network (same SSID, same security) consisting of wireless router downstairs (channel 6), hard wired to Access Point upstairs (channel 1).

Downstairs Set Up (Belkin F9K1002)
- DCHP on 192,.168.2.11 to 192.168.2.100
- LAN IP 192.168.2.1
- Gateway 192.168.0.1

Upstairs Set Up (D-Link DIR 505 in AP mode)
- DCHP off
- static LAN IP 192.168.2.10
- Gateway 192.168.2.1

Printer (Samsung SCX-4623FW)
- static IP 192.168.2.6
- gateway 102.168.2.1

When the printer connects through the strong signal of the DLink upstairs, I can print from the upstairs PC which is also connected via the DLink, but not from the downstairs laptop. When I turn off the DLink, and upstairs printer, laptop and downstairs PC all connect thru the Belkin, albeit with a weak and intermittent signal, I can print from both laptop and PC

So it seems that the downstairs laptop connecting through the Belkin downstairs can't see the printer upstairs when IT is connected through the DLink upstairs.

Probably a pilot error as I'm a networking novice. Anyone see my mistake?

Hello everyone,

I have a 2 tb external hdd made by Fantom connected by usb to a windows 7 machine. The windows 7 machine and a windows xp machine are both hardwired to a wireless router. I had everything configured correctly so both machines could access this hdd with no issues what so ever. Something changed somewhere because now the windows xp machine still has this drive mapped, i can still access the drive and see all the folders, and i can still open several of the folders and access the contents, but for some reason, some of the folders will no longer let me access them. The message i get is "\\Keith-pc\fantom\sandra 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." I dont know what changed and why only some of the folders do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey I currently use DSL and run under windows xp. Currently having a problem with my computer. Instant messager programs are working fine but when I click on a link or type in a web address on a browser, it will act like a broken link ("This page can not be displayed.......) or just say "Done" on the status bar without doing anything. I called sprint tech support and they assure me I have a great connection up to my computer so it's something on my system, possibly a browser hijacker. I ran "hijack this" and I'll post my log here while I am at it. My computer says I am connected to the internet but the browser does not respond.

I'm working on a Windows XP Media Center computer that seems to be having difficulty accessing web pages...specifically scripted pages. As an example, from Internet Explorer 6.0 if I try to access the webmail from comcast.net: http://www.comcast.net/qry/goto?app=mail&CM.src=top where there is a ? in the address
it will immediately go to page not found saying that it can not connect to the specified page. I have made sure that I have SSL and TLS selected in the options, I have turned off the pop-up blocker and uninstalled all antivirus and firewalling software. I have also tried installing Firefox to see if this works however firefox will not access any webpages at all nevermind the ones that IE is having issues with. I am using DHCP and am getting an IP address without an issue and can obviously see the internet since I can visit some webpages in IE.

Does anyone have any idea? I am running out of options besides from reformatting.

A:interesting problem with old networked computer

When you're logging on to the system, is is trying to log onto a domain? Or do you know if it used to be part of a domain? Because these (lack of internet and internet connection wizard) are Group Policy security settings.

Try removing it from the domain (if it is on one), don't forget it doesn't need to be physically connected because credentials are cached. Removing from a domain is tricky without the domain controller, however someone might know how to do it.

I have networked two computer with printers attached to each.
PC1 is “guy”, with a brother printer attached
PC2 is “Susan” with a HP 1100 attached

In the past I had no difficulty with networking the computers and have access from each computer to each of the printers.

I up graded the computer Susan and I am now having a few problems that I never had before.

After I perform the Network Setup Wizard on each of the computers (in many different methods) I am having the following problems.

First, every now and then I am getting the following message after double clicking on Entire Network then Microsoft Windows Network:

Entire Network
Not enough storage is available to process this command.

If I wait a few moments I will get the MSHOME and am allowed to click on that.
After this I do see both guy and Susan. If I double click on guy I see items pop up.
If I click on Susan I get the following message:

\\Susan 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.

The network path is not found.

Of course I can not add the printer from Susan either. Though I have had no problem adding the printer from guy to Susan. And it prints properly.

What am I doing wrong…

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration….

Hi there,

I have a relatively new Dell computer that was, up until recently networked wih 4 other computers. My roommate who did the networking did something to the computer so that he could control everything from his laptop (when the password screen popped up, he had to use his wireless keyboard from his laptop to enter it into the Dell).

Here is my problem - my roommate moved out (and very far away) and when I go to turn on my Dell computer now, the password screen pops up, but the mouse and keyboard that is plugged in do not work. I've tried a USB keyboard and a PS2 keyboard and neither work.

I know the password, but is there anything I can do to enable my keyboard and mouse?

At my work there's a room with computers for the public to use and everything is running smoothly and they are all able to print apart from one.

The problem machine recently had a corrupt windows install so I fixed that and now it's working and connected to the network/on the internet but I'm completely unable to get it to print.

It says I need to add a printer so I go to control panel and pick the printers and faxes section and to use the option for adding a printer but can't pick the existing printer that all the other computers use.

Add printer wizard - next - network printer/printer attached to another computer - browse for printers.

Here's where the problem lies - it comes up with the option of clicking Microsoft Windows Network but doesn't display the actual Network that all the computers are on, there's no add sign so I can't expand it.

If I try to press next it says 'you need to specify a valid network printer name'

I've been on another computer, looked at the settings on it for printers, found the right printer and then wrote the exact name into where you can type on the add printers screen but it doesn't like it.

I'm not sure what to do about this don't like printers or networking, not my thing at all! - any suggestions are welcome and thanks in advance guys!

I know there is no problem with the DSL because the it can be accessed from any other computer in the house. For some reason, this one computer does not connect. Any idea what might be going on? If u need more details just let me know. Thanx a lot

Does the router have the capacity for all the PC's? Is the computer in question in an area where the signal is not strong enough to make a connection?

Please show for one of the problematic computers when working and when not working ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
If this PC is using a Wi-Fi connection also please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

I have made a similar post to this a few days ago but it was kind of confusing so i have decided to make a new post,

Hello,

Say i have 2 computers, computer 1 and 2.

I want to edit the registry of computer 2 from computer 1 (i.e just run a .reg file on computer 2)
But i don't know how and computer 2's share permissions is read only.
I have used PSEXEC but it seems that you need the permission to be set to writable because i get an access is denied error when using it.
and i CANNOT access computer 2..

My company gave me a computer, that used to be part of a network, for my personal use at home. I was using it at first as a terminal just disconnected from the network, but then played around in the admin/users area and changed (i think) to an un-networked computer. I know get error messages that pop up only upon starting and shutting down my computer. Once I click OK they go away, and everything seems to work fine...but they are kind of bothersome and I would like to know how to get rid of them if possible. The error message reads:

"Access violation at address 00426059 in module "WMP54GSv1_1.exe". Read of address 00000368."

Any suggestions?

WMP54GSv1_1.exe is part of linksys if you have something installed from them like a wireless card or software uninstall the driver then reinstall.

Greetings, hopefully someone can help.

The situation:
I have to network a group of three computers (1 iMac (OSX 10.1), 1 eMac (OSX Panther) and one PC (Windows 2000). Using a switch, the eMac must access files off the other machines so that it can burn them to DVD - i've done some research and this sounds like the easy part. I also realize that the windows PC won't be able to communicate with the OS 10.1 Mac

However, my concern is this:
The PC is connected to a seperate network so it can access a shared network drive and the internet.

The Question:
Using the PC which will be equipped with two network cards (one for the larger network with internet & shared network drive and the other to connect to the switch with the two other macs), how would I configure Windows 2000 so that it it can still access my larger network while being able to connect with the two other Macs?

Additionally, will it be possible to 1) share the internet with the Macs from the PC and/or 2) share the server's network drive with the Macs from the PC (not a major priority)?

Many thanks for your consideration

Long story short, I have a Asus CG5270 desktop with a cdrom that DOES NOT work and a hard drive that is totally wiped clean of any operating system. I also have a router and a perfectly working laptop with Windows 7 64bit home premium on it. I do not have a crossover cable or external hard drive. I have the recovery disk for the desktop which is Vista 64bit home premium SP1.

Can I or can I not use the laptop to reinstall Vista on my desktop?

I've found this question asked countless times in countless forums but also countless answers that do not answer the question for a person that is not a computer engineer.

My apologies if I sound frustrated but I am LOL. Can someone please give me a simple answer and if it is possible can you please provide if there is one a step by step walk-through for dummies?

Much thanks!
 

A:Can I install windows from networked computer?

Get another CD-ROM, that would be the easiest solution. You cannot install Windows the way you are attempting to do it. There are ways to install an OS over a LAN, but the configuration and particulars to get it to work would be far more difficult than getting a replacement CD-ROM.

On my home network, the other Win 10 PC is suddenly showing in my taskbar near the task view icon. I like the idea and would like to set the other Win 10 machine to do the same but I can't find out how or why it decided to show up. Google has been of no help.

If anyone here knows, please clue me in. Thanks!!

Sorry. It somehow found it's way into a folder I had created for an additional toolbar. It ended up just being a worthless static shortcut
