Preferred Solution: share program connection problems

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'll have to give more information, TerryAzul. At the least your Operating System and what your exact problem is.

First, apologies if this is in the wrong bit, couldnt find anything that looked like an area to post this.

OK, so like many im trying to share out my PC at home with my Xbox360 to save paying out the extortion that is the wireless adapter.

Setup is - Standard IBM style PC, built in NIC running Windows Ultimate in 32bit mode. PC has a USB wireless dongle attached which picks up wireless feed from a netgear router situated downstairs. XBox360 is standard, non-chipped etc, settings as per factory.

What I have done - I have connected both using a standard Cat5 ethernet cable, both in straight through and in crossover mode and done the following steps for both.

1. Connected and turned on both PC and XBox360
2. Gone into network sharing centre on the PC
3. PC has found a local network connection and also my wireless connection
4. Wireless connection is set to

Automatic configure IP
Automatic configure DNS

Will not allow me to share, comes up with an error simply stating that

An error occured while tryin to setup connection sharing

5. Local area set to

Automatic configure IP
Automatic configure DNS

I can set ICS on and this then starts altering the IP addressing (here is where it gets messy)

6. At this point my IP address goes from the one assigned by my router to something in the 169 range (meaning dodgy ether connection) and my connection to the internet drops. Reason im told is that there are two pc's with the same IP address in an error message. I do an ipc... Read more

I'm trying to connect my Dell desktop to my Sony laptop via a network cable. Neither computer is picking up that there is a connection. I've tried two different network cables both of which worked when I previously hooked up my laptop to other computers. I've even gone as far as installing a new network card in the desktop in case the existing port is knackered for whatever reason. All connections are enabled and all devices according to windows are working properly. Any idea's?

Been a while since I last visisted here, but this being the best tech support forum on the web (that i can find at least, ^_^) I've decided to once again bring my problems here.

About a week and a half ago I downloaded the free version of ZoneAlarm and installed it with no difficulties. I was off-line at the time. The next day I try to connect and it does not seem to work. About 4 days later my connection magicly seems to be working again. It may or may not have been my isp in the area, but I tried two dial up programs (mindspring, msn broswer) and niether worked. They would dial, then make odd noises and then not connect. I atributed this to possibly the mindsping router or possibly the mindspring/earthlink isp in the area. Although that wouldn't explain the msn connection not working I put my mind to rest since I could connect.

But, then about 3 days ago while dialing my modem started making odd noises. The phone number would dial, but it would pause and be somewhat slow in the latter parts of the connection process, but it would still connect. It would connect, but it would be either extremely slow or would say it was connection though it may or not have been actually connected since none of my internet programs worked. They would say can not connect to internet or something along those lines. I would have to dial up multiple times before it actually 'connected' and was a strong enough connection for my programs to use the connection. This was really... Read more

I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit on a Dell Latitude D630 laptop. It is two years old, and I switched from Vista to 7 six months ago. I have a wireless internet connection through a Linksys router, model #: WRT160N V2. I use Mozilla Firefox version 3 as my primary browser.

Now the problem. Recently I was online and while I was searching through web sites a "Virus Scanner" malware program installed itself to my computer. The program would not allow me to open task manager or the start bar, and it started closing active windows on me. The only real option that it would give me was to purchase the "full version" of the program. I performed a hard shutdown, rebooted, and brought up Task Manager before the malware booted. I located the EXE through the Task Manager processes list and deleted it from my computer, which destroyed the program.

I believed that for the most part it would not give me any further trouble. I can access web pages through Firefox, receive email through Mozilla Thunderbird, and the overall performance of my computer has not changed. However, two days ago I discovered that none of the other programs I use (Zune, Google Chrome, Google Earth, Valve's Steam, Internet Explorer 8, World of Warcraft Launcher, etc) will connect to the internet. As an example, when attempting to connect to Steam I get this Error Message: "Unable to connect to HTTP Proxy. Your proxy may be misconfigured or offline. -336". This problem is a... Read more

Let me start from the beginning:

I was infected with a trojan csrss.exe virus a day or so ago. I knew it the moment I clicked the link from Google that it was bad news. I immediately closed everything and ran MalwareBytes, which found two infected files, and attempted to remove it and restarted my computer. Everything seemed fine for a period of time, and then I realized I was getting Google redirects. And also, eventually my firefox browser lost it's connection and would tell me the proxy it was configured through wasn't available. I do not use a proxy on my computer, so I figured my virus was still hanging around. I rebooted in safe mode, and then ran MalwareBytes again. This time it found 8 infected files (still the same csrss.exe) and removed them and restarted. Since then my browsers have connected no problem.

However, now the problem is - other programs I try to run can't seem to connect to the internet. But some can. My skype has worked fine this whole time - but if I try to run a game that connects, it won't. I have since tried resetting my router, which didn't help. And then I downloaded and ran TDSSKiller using the tutorial here. It found one file in the System32 folder, sptd.sys, which I had the option of skipping, copying to quarantine, or deleting, and I just skipped because I wasn't sure to do.

I'm at a loss of what to do next, as certain programs of mine still can't connect to the internet. I appreciate the help.

A:Certain program connection problems after trojan removal

I have this same issue -- eager to read what replies you get.

In my case (posted as: "Suspected Rootkit Virus on WinXP SP3 is Serious" and sent here by Gringo since it wasn't solved) I can only use IE8, since Firefox and Chrome stopped "connecting" -- along with any other program that needs updating: MalwareBytes, Skype, Tweetdeck, Adobe -- you name it, the list keeps growing. But Gringo said it's not a virus/trojan/rootkit issue since MSE still updates, and I get the normal Microsoft updates. *sigh*

Good luck with getting answers -- and if you discover something in the meantime, please post, I'll be watching~!

So, here's the situation:

I'm currently trying to help a business set up their client-management program to work in two separate locations on two different high speed connections. On a LAN, the program essentially runs in two separate instances from the same executable. I'm not able to transfer the program itself, because the license does not carry over to the second computer; so basically, I have to run it from a shortcut to the primary PC.

My question is this: does anybody have an idea to run the program (as a shortcut or some type of server) from this location to the primary location, in a similar manner as the LAN computer using the shortcut?

the easiest way to do what you want is to set up an FTP Server.

FTP is secure if you make sure that you assign accounts and not set it up as anonymous!

His setup is as follows: a 1ghz athlon running winxp home edition and is connected via a vigor2200usb router to a usb external alcatel speedtouch 330 modem, housed in a separate room to his PC. He used to run his PC and multiple xbox's from the router with no problems via his ISP PIPEX adsl account which.. I'm supposed to take over.

I have 3 computers in 3 separate rooms. When my daughter comes home from college she will have a notebook computer. Without having to disconnect the ethernet cable from the back of her Desktop PC is there a way to split the male end to 2 female ends. This would allow me to connect 2 short male to male ends. One to the PC and one to the notebook. Does such an inexpensive splitter exist. I was able to split my phone lines like this and that splitter was about 2 bucks. Do they make them for RJ45 ends?
 

A:how to share one ethernet connection

What you need is a router, and I'd recommend a wireless one so anyone with a laptop can connect without cabling.

Here's an Open Box router and wireless adapter for $23: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127175R
The modem connects to the router, and the router shares the connection with any and all computers connecting to it. So you can all be on the internet at the same, and even sahre files amongst yourselves.

A simple splitter won't work.

you can do Internet Connection Sharing. You will have to choose which one will be the 'gateway', but I wouldn't recommend it on a dial-up service.

Ok, so there is a wireless network in the house I am in, my laptop has wireless in built, but my desktop has no wireless card so as I am in the attic of the house, I am unable to just use an ethernet cable to connect it to the internet.

I've been trying for about half an hour now, but no joy. Am I just being stupid, or do I just create a connection between the desktop and the laptop and then bridge it with the wireless connection? is there something that I need to activate that I've missed?

Hi. I'm having this problem in Windows 8 where I can't share the Internet with another PC, which runs Windows XP. My Internet connection name displays as "Unidentified network" which I think disables ICS and sharing altogether. I've also tried changing configurations in the HomeGroup and, although a second connection called "Network 2" set as "Private network" appears, it disappears after I reboot the PC. Any help please?

Maybe this tutorial will help. It helps to use a crossover cable for this connection but I believe there are ways around that. The second link shows settings more specific to setting up connection sharing with XP machines.

You will also want to leave the Home group if you set one up. Home groups are made for Windows 7 machines only.

If you need to share files between those machines you should set up a Workgroup using the same workgroup name for all machines in the workgroup.

Hello. 1st I'd like to excuse myself for possible grammatical fails in my problem, I'm not American nor Britainian so please accept my excuse.

Okay, here's the problem.

I'm connecting to internet via Wi-Fi USB adapter and my connection works great. But few days ago friend brought his PC to me so we could do some online gaming over night but there my problems started. We connected both PC's with ethernet cable in this scheme (My PC - ethernet cable - unset router - ethernet cable - his PC)

Okay the problem is that when I set up the LAN, I can't connect to the internet ( I noticed that I can surf the internet when I share my Wireless connection in advanced settings, so I use that trick to connect to the Internet when I need to ) but we can play in LAN.

So here's the real conflict. Why can't I share my internet connection to his PC. I allow my Wireless Network Connection sharing but he can't connect to the internet.

We're both using WinXP SP3 and we have almost same PC's. So can anyone help me?

I am even willing to use TeamViewer for easier help if someone can help me?

A:Way to share my internet connection?

Here's a checklist of things for ICS and file sharing for 2 croslinked computers (This is what works for Win 7 and XP):

- both computers set to the same workgroup
- restarts
- advanced sharing settings - all things turned on (network discovery etc.) except for password protected sharing
- bridged the connection with the internet
- turned on Internet Connection Sharing for the internet connection - this forced an ip to the other connection (192.168.137.1) and gave an option to select which connection should have access to the ICS (the second connection or the bridge - you choose the second / crosslinked cable connection)
- shared some folders on both computers
- worked instantly (the other pc aquired a correct ip and internet)

Hi Folks

I have BT broadband to my house.

I have two PC's a work laptop and a desktop. I currently have both setup up to use the broadband access but only one at a time.

What I am wondering is if there is any way to share the connection between the two PC's so that both can be connected to the web at the same time?

If this is possible what hardware would I need?

Thanks
 

A:Can I share my broadband connection?

You would need to install a router, probably a 4 port as I have not seen a 2 port router. The router would be installed after the modem. The cable from the modem (that connects to the computer now) gets plugged into the WAN port on the router and the two computers woul be connected through the LAN ports on the router. You will probably have to purchase those cables seperately. Radio Shack is one source for all those components. Or you could go wireless. It depends on what fits your budget.

I have access to an internet connection that uses mac address filtering and timed sessions. i.e., from 30mins to 366days. I want to use my connection (I have a 366day account) to the network as a hotspot for my iPhone without having to go through the hassle of either getting another 366day pass or the grief associated with spoofing the mac address in order to get online with my phone. I also don't want to use iTunes because it will mess up my iPod's stuff too. And adding a new device has already cost me a library of stuff and due to "we can't confirm xyz, have a great day" after it was all deleted. (I changed those settings now though from the default burn all not the same" even if a few are just renamed to save scrolling. Anyway going off tangent their.

How can I use my laptop as a pseudo router so that the mac filter doesn't interfere with my phone? ICS through the windows networking doesn't show my laptop as a separate WiFi connection, ie transmit as a router would. (the phone will though but also rack up a fortune in data charges though.)

Please can someone help me with this. I have tried more than one so called how to that has not done what it said it would, which is turn my laptop into a pseudo-wireless router and at the same time maintain my connection to my internet connection.

And thanks to MSN giving me grief with the new format, basically because I am not using the same computer/apartment/ISP etc... that I used when I sig... Read more

I am trying to set up an internet connection share. I cant share files because the host pc is XP Pro with NTFS and the network pc is Windows 98 Fat32. When I did the setup the Wizard said I could use the XP disk in the 98 system to complete the task. I also followed the directions from this note,

Try this:
"Just plug the Crossover cable into the two computers. To set it up go to Control Panel/Network.

If there is and entry there for TCP/IP fine. If not you need to add it. Click Add the Protocal/Add. Select Microsoft and select TCP/IP and OK.

Once you have TCP/IP install highlight it and click properties. Click specifiy IP address and insert 192.168.000.001. Enter sub net mask of 255.255.255.000.

You may get asked if you want to re-boot at this stage. Decline as there is more to do.

Click File and Printer sharing and tick both boxes. Now you can re-boot.

Do the same on the other computer but this time enter an IP address if 192.168.000.002 with the same mask. Install file and printer sharing as well and reboot.

Once the computers have re-booted you need to set up sharing. Right click on any drive or folder in Windows Explorer and clcik Sharing. Click shared as: Either axcept the name offered or enter one of your own. In access type I would suggest Full if you are the only one to be using these computers, otherwise enter passwords if required.

Do this for every Dri... Read more

As long as one of your PCs has a WiFi card it can create its own wireless hot spot using Connectify.

I use it to connect my own iPhone to the internet when I'm too far from my router and it works a treat.

It allows you to be both connected to a router wirelessly and to be acting as a WiFi access point at the same time.

It is one of the most versatile networking apps out there.

Hi there,
My LAN is using 192.168.xx.xx network. but I have a small office in Indonesia which all 4 users connects their notebook and retrieve email using SecurID(VPN). They are always connected and my VPN gives a 10.10.xx.xx IP address. my printer is network enabled and is plugged to the router(print server enabled). How do i share this printer with the users always connected to VPN. ?? pls help..
 

A:How to share printer over VPN connection?

well, if you have a print server on the network, and your outside users are VPN'd in, they should be able to ping to the address of that print server. If they can, you can direct them through the Add Printer Wizard, have them manually configure a new Standard TCP/IP port, and then add the print drivers. After that you should be good to go.

What the diagram will be look like of the hardware and layout that you suggest for each location and if there is any choices could you explain why especially for the devices we will use and what brands and do i need a server or network printer if i need where it shuold be. thank you
 

A:How Do I Share An Internet Connection?

You want to share an internet connection between two small offices 5Km apart? 5Km as in 3+ miles? Contact your local telecommunication companies and see what they can offer.

I hope you have other reasons for wanting your own private network between these offices as any solution is going to be far more expensive than two internet connections.

I have a Win XP Pro SP1 box and Win NT 4 box. The XP box is connected directly to an ISDN connection. Both boxes have ethernet cards.

Can I share the internet connection by connecting both boxes to a router, establish the internet connection from the xp box, then connect the NT box somehow?

Thanks.

Hello all,

Okay hear is the problem that I am faced with... I have a Virgin Mobile MC760 3G broadband device, I want to share that 3G internet connection with my D-Link DIR-615 router so that I can connect to the 3G over WiFi on my other devices.

The host computer that the 3G device would be plugged into is running Windows XP version 2002 Service Pack 2.

I realize that they do sell 3G routers but I would like to use the D-Link DIR-615 that I already have to avoid buying another router. I also realize that it may be easier to share the connection by creating a wireless network on the host computer and then enable internet sharing, I don't want to do this I need to share the connection through the router.

I don't know if it is possible to do this but any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Is it possible to share a 3G connection through a router?

You will need a second network card on the PC so that you can connect it to the router and use Internet Connection Sharing.
