Windows 7 prompts "Enter Network Password"

Q: Windows 7 prompts "Enter Network Password"

I've got a desktop computer with XP Pro SP3 and a laptop with both XP and Win7(dual-boot). These two computers are connected through a router in a network(desktop comp-wired, laptop-wireless). Everything works fine, except the sharing in Win7. From the desktop computer I can access all resources on the laptop without problems. From the laptop, everything works fine too, when I try to access the desktop computer's shared folders and printers, but ONLY FROM XP. Every time I want to do this from Win7, I'll be prompted for a "network password". I have no idea what I had to enter - I did a search over the internet, and found following suggestions:

-turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, public folder sharing at the Advanced Sharing Settings, and disable password-protected sharing
-both computers are in the same workgroup
-disabled the limitation of blank passwords in the group policy editor

NOTHING WORKED. (firewall might not be the reason, because I use Windows Firewall, and it's configured to enable sharing)

What username/password do I have to enter, or how could I access the resources without a password? Thanks in advance for your help.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 prompts "Enter Network Password"

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: Windows 7 prompts "Enter Network Password"

Try this adjustment on the XP machine. This usually works to get rid of the password prompt.

Goto... Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > Security Options

Scroll down to... Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts

Select... Guest only and not Classic.

Hello there

So I'm experiencing strange BitLocker behaviour. I have this PC at work. Clean Windows 8 x64 installation, 3 HDD (AHCI), no SSD.

After I set up BitLocker to encrypt "C" partition, it gave me pop-up window, that I should restart PC to test the BitLocker loader. So I clicked Yes. And after few seconds I got this:

JPG IMAGE - http://www.eightforums.com/attachments/f1/f2/22871d1370880908t-very-strange-bitlocker-enter-password-startup-screen-5jkippr.jpg

Mind, I'm still ABLE TO type password (i can't see sh** though), after I hit enter Windows IS booting, but it's really weird to see above picture instead of:


My GFX is OK, I tested it with games, benchmarks etc.
BitLocker simply cannot, for whatever reason, use my video card properly and displays those weird lines. After all - it hasn't loaded the whole Windows yet. Than again, it IS a bit strange, as Windows installers tend to work fine.


Any thoughts people?

Kind Regards

I have three computers running Windows 7 Pro 64.  All homegroups and connections worked fine until recently (system update?).  Now the "Main" computer cannot be accessd from the other two without asking for network name and password. (I never made
one from the beginning!).  The two computers cannot "see" USB printer on Main computer, and when browsing for printers on theother computers, the request for Network Name and Password comes up......also my new Samsung HD TV cannot "see" my Main computer

I've been using Outlook 2007 for a while with no problems. I used to select my account, and when the "Enter Network Password" box popped up it had the focus, so I would just immediately type in my password. I did a set of Windows and Office updates a couple of weeks ago, and now when that box pops up the focus is still on the main Outlook mail reader screen. I have to click the Password box to shift the focus so I can type in my password. Is there a way to restore this automatic focus for the Password panel when it pops up?

Please allow the Guest account access to all of the files on both the share security and the file system security settings.

You can start this process by right clicking the share and root directory and hitting the Security tab, then adding 'Guest' and allow entries, respectively until completed.

While you're there you may as well be sure that there are no deny permissions active.

Sorry if this has been answered, but I can't seem to find a thread that applies to this situation:

Just installed new router, linksys e3000. I'm on a Win7 box, wired, and connecting fine to the internet, and the Tivo and my ipod touch are connecting fine wirelessly. so far so good.

I can see the router via 192.168.1.1 from my BROWSER and adjust settings etc, all as normal, and as with old routers I've had.... again, so far so good.

The new router has a USB port, so I thought I'd see how that worked. Plugged in a USB HD to the port. The router recognizes it in its router admin setup pages under 192.168.1.1. So far so good.

Here's the problem. On the Win7 box, I go to "Network" and I see two things under "Computers". I see "WIN7PC" (my windows box) and I see "BOBNET" (the name I gave the router during setup). Clicking on WIN7PC I see my shared folders, as usual. Clicking on BOBNET, I get the prompt "Enter Network Password: Enter your password to connect to BOBNET (user box)(password box) domain WIN7PC "

I've entered every combination of user and password I can think of, nothing lets me in.

- I have NO password associated with my Win7 user name "Bob".
- I tried "admin" and the router password, as if I was logging into the router via the browser. No joy.
- I'm not part of a "Homegroup" as this is the only Win7 box. My shared folders are seen by my wife's Macs, no password required.

A:Linksys e3000 "Enter Network Password"

A quick Google and a look in the router manual shows quite an extensive set-up and control system for the USB drive sharing (3. Advanced settings P27)

the log in details may be Admin / Admin or admin / (blank), but in any case this should be settable from the router end

I suggest that you add an additional user with the same name and password as your win7 username (depending on the router firmware / OS you may have to provide a password.

Having the same user / password in win7 and the E3000 should make things easier

I reached the limit of my patience well over an hour ago, and I'm praying that someone has the answer I can't seem to find anywhere.

I have three PCs: Hal, Falcon, and Athena. Hal and Falcon are desktops running 7 Ultimate x64. Athena is a netbook running 7 Home Premium 32bit. All of them played nicely with each other across the network, and not a single "Enter Network Password" prompt was to be found. From Hal I could get into Athena and Falcon, from Athena I could get into Hal and Falcon, you get the idea.

Yesterday, I reformatted Athena with the same OS it has now, 7 Home Premium 32bit. Post install, things went pear shaped. Athena can get into Hal and Falcon. Hal and Falcon can get into each other. Hal and Falcon cannot get into Athena. From both of those machines, I get an "Enter Network Password" prompt. I spent literally all day looking for a solution. I did not find one. I rebooted, I searched, I double checked all the settings, I ran a troubleshooter that said I didn't have permission to access the Share (this is the default Share by the way, the User Folder Share), so with my limited knowledge I checked the Permissions. To my eyes, everything was identical to the other two computers, and there was no reason I shouldn't be able to walk right in.

If you are using homegroup, it uses IPv6 and has known issues with some legacy systems. You can keep what hair you have left by enabling a workgroup (IPv4 instead) and it wont require a password.

Hi! I'm trying to connect my Macbook to my PC, and every time I double-click the name of my Mac, the prompt comes up.
I've turned off password protected settings(both) and made Reading and Writing available for everyone on my Mac, and this prompt still comes up. I've used every password I can think of as well.
After many tries of turning the setting off, even though I've read you're not supposed to have to, I reset my computer, and even that did nothing.
Anything helps, I'm stuck in a rut and can't get out.
Here's a screenshot of the window if that helps:

A:"Enter Network Password" Prompt

If you are connecting to the MAC book you need to authenticate using credentials on that MAC book and not the local account being shown. For example, if I had your MAC book with a username of Josh on it I would click the 'Use another account' option and enter the following:

Username: ASHLYNS-MACBOOK\Josh

Password: {password that was configured on the mac book for that user account}

Unless you have the same username and password on both your Windows machine and Macbook you would end up with that screen.

In terms of allowing everyone access you would need to look into the share permissions itself.

Hope This Helps,

For some time now, double clicking on a folder no longer opens it as usual. Instead, double clicking on a folder causes a separate Explorer Search window to open, with that folder's name under the "search in" tab. In fact, when i right click on a folder, the first and bold-faced option is "search", as opposed to "open". So to open any folder I have to right click it and hit open, which is slow and annoying. I cleaned out my registry, spyware, viruses, everything, and still this problem persists. I also checked the Mouse control panel, nothing there.

Outlook keeps asking me to enter network password. In the last 6 hours--28 times! Driving me nuts. I have tried deleting my email a/c and then setting it up again. It looks to me like Vista x64 business is not remembering my passwords even though the 'remeber password' box is checked. When I switch to another email program the problem goes away but I want to use Outlook because of its rich features.

How do I get rid of the annoying Enter Network Password screens?

Sometimes when I try to connect to a wifi network, i enter my username/password, it tries to connect for a while then I get the same popup asking me to enter my user credentials...again.
There is never any reason specified for why I am being asked to re-enter my user credentials.
This is extremely annoying. How can I troubleshoot this if Windows does not tell me why?
Event viewer shows no error messages either.
Is there any way to get Windows to tell me why I am being asked to re-enter my user credentials?

I broke one of the "feet" on my old E-Machines PS/2 keyboard I have used for years and like. I also use one at work that's pretty close to the same layout. I am looking everywhere for a keyboard with a large "enter" and "backspace" I can't find one. I don't care if it's USB or PS/2 but hate the "flat" type that ship with computers these days you look at the key to hard and it presses. I have HUGE hands and like the "old style" keyboard that you have to press pretty hard on the keys (like an actual spring under them) Do any of you know of a specialty keyboard shop or somewhere else with a big selection? I have looked all over the internet on the "major" places. (i.e. Newegg, TigerDirect, BestBuy, Wal-Mart, etc...)

If anyone knows of a place that has "old style" keyboards please let me know. I may have to settle but for such a small purchase that I use so much, I'd like to get what I want and I can't be the only one with massive hands having these same issues. The world isn't made for us big guys.

A:Keyboard large "Enter and Backspace" and "stiff" keys

Actually, PS2 is still in vogue on on most motherboards, and most local computer repair shops sell older KBs - maybe for more than they are worth, but they do.

I have an older KB that is PS/2 - I'll make a pic and post it if you want it.

Please can somebody help with this minor but annoying matter. When turning on my business computer one morning, the space bar and return/enter buttons are visable when i type emails, but when i send them, they are not. I know its a setting, but can anyone tell me what setting and how to turn it off?

Thanks!

A:[SOLVED] &quot;Space bar&quot; and &quot;return/enter&quot; are visual on emails! Help

You need to tell us what email client you use as these days not everyone uses the built-in one.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:





I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

The tech guys on that forum were unable to find the source... Read more

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

Thanks

Hi, really hoping someone can help.

With increasing regularity, my pc is behaving as if the "enter"key is bing held down, e.g.
On launching IE8, multiple screens will open
On deleting an address book entry from Outlook, the PC continued to delete until the entire address book was emptied.
This can happen at startup or any other time.
Have scanned before & since this problem with Norton 360, restored to an earlier version of my set-up, changed keyboard & mouse.
My only fix has been a forced shutdown and reboot, which workis about half the time.

I found Pantom0o10's earlier posts on similar topics and folowed the advice re: hijackthis. My logfile is below...

A friend called and said that he'd tried using the Repair Console to fix a missing file in MS Office (I wish he'd call me before he tries crazy stuff) and now no matter what he does the PC begins to go into Safe Mode, then displays the message "Windows cannot enter Set Up while in Safe Mode". It doesn't finish getting into Safe Mode where you see your icons, it stops at the black screen with "Safe Mode" displayed in the corners.
I told him I can stop by tomorrow but I don't know what to try when I get there. Does this strange Safe Mode behavior ring any bells with anyone?

Should I try the MVP directions for performing a Windows Repair? He doesn't have his original XP CD, but a relative loaned him one. I'm pretty sure that doesn't make a difference. Right?

Another weird deal...while talking on the phone he went into BIOS to look at the boot order. In my BIOS the Seagate HDD is identified as "ST10080" or something like that. His BIOS just said HDD0, HDD1, HDD2, etc. He's only got one non-partitioned drive inside the box and an external HDD. Does that seem right?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

A:"Windows can't enter setup in safe mode"

try this
run the system file checker = put in your windows disk

go to the run box on the start menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not recognized ) [ space between c and / ]

hit enter

he never partitioned the seagate
