Enter Network Password prompt won't go away

Q: Enter Network Password prompt won't go away

Hi All,
I have a new (to me) pc. It is an HP Media Center PC. I believe it was manufactured sometime around 2005. Also, I just switched from Comcast Internet to Verizon Internet. I am having trouble sending email from Outlook 2003. I can get email but not send it. I've tried several things to resolve the problem but, usually, have no idea what I'm doing. I tried resetting the router user ID and password but don't know if that has anything to do with my problem. After I hit the reset button on the Verizon/Actiontec router I eventually got to a page, from Verizon, asking for a User ID and password but wasn't sure what to input. My PC was given to me by a friend who used it in a small business he owns. I believe there were other computers in his business network. Would that be the network the prompt is referring to? I don't have a user ID or password for that network but may be able to get them. There are also other Users in my house who are on the Verizon account that I use. I am not the primary account holder but am the person trying to set up the email feature. The other computers are a Toshiba laptop and a Mac. At this point I'm more confused than ever. I'd really appreciate some help. Any suggestions? Thanks!

You have to set up your router with your Verizon User Name (Email address) and your password. Verizon Support
You must also change your Email address and password in Outlook.

I know there's been a few queries by people regarding this prompt, but all the ones I've read seem to be connected with Outlook or operating a laptop via wireless - neither of which I use/do.

The pop-up has just started appearing today and I have no idea why. I don't even know if I should have a username and password for this? No idea what it is.

Can anyone advise please?

Parameters: Vista. Outlook 2003. Yahoo pop3.

I know. This problem is not new. I did search through the web and trying to find a solution but was in vain. I uninstalled my Outlook; deleted all .pst records and reinstalled Outlook. The problem kept coming back.

I do not have a problem with another account running in the same Outlook. There is also no problem logging in directly from the yahoo mail website.

I would appreciate it if anyone could share his/her experience in succesfully solving this problem.

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,
Josh

As above really. Trying to create a network for file sharing, as have upgraded the 'server' (part of a Workgroup, not a Domain) from WinXP to Win7 and experienced problems ever since. Ironically the problems haven't mainly been with sharing files between Win7 and WinXP systems, but between 2 Win7 systems.

I bought a new Win7 laptop and tried to connect it to the server, but it hasn't had Read/Write privileges over the files in the Win7 server. Entering a username and password to gain access to the servers folders has not been a problem, and as far as I know, opening files such as documents has not been a problem either. However, when trying to save an edited document, access is denied, and if I try to open an executable file (this is necessary for a node installation), it prompts me for a network password.

Every combination possible of username and password from the 2 systems (including '\' or 'SYSTEMNAME\' before the username) has not worked. I tried syncing the times which was apparently a previous problem, but to no avail. I am unable to access Local Security Policy, as the server is running off Home Premium. I have tried creating a new workgroup, removing and changing passwords, enabling guest access to the network through the Windows Resource Kit Command Shell, creating identical users on both computers, but nothing appears to have worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Hi all. Not too good with computer issues, but I have been reluctantly chosen as the household tech wizard. lol

Husband updated his laptop to Windows 10 several months ago. So far it's been good, and he likes it...that is until this morning. He opens the laptop...no internet connection. It shows our wifi network, but won't connect. He enters his password...says he needs to enter password for that device. Enter password from before Windows 10...no good. Enter password for micorstoft...no good.

Using my laptop (Windows 7) to find fix. Suggestions I've tried: Troublshoot network connection by right clicking. Right Click won't work...nothing happens. Maybe keyboard language is wrong...no settings button available to look at keyboard properties. Try connecting directly to router...won't make connection. We've rebooted the computer a couple of times, to no avail.

Our phones are connected, my laptop is connected, our chromecast is connected, so we know it's not the router. There is something up with his laptop.

Playing ring around the rosey is not the best way to spend a Sunday morning. no internet connection = no ability to enter password = not able to troubleshoot internet connection = no internet connection = no ability to enter password.

A:no network connection = no ability to enter password = no network conn

Ok. Here goes...His phone worked, my phone did work then quit working, our Smart TV quit working. My laptop continued to be connected, etc. Reset modem, problem solved. OMG!!!!!! Weird that some devices worked while others didn't.

From what I have read the WD Mybook has problems with certain Windows 8 machines.

There is a long thread about this at the WD forums, maybe you should read through it and see if the latest firmware has fixed this bug.

I'll try to make this not so confusing.
I have a home network with 4 PCs.
PC 1: Win 2000, cable modem & MS wireless router
PC 2: XP, MS wireless NIC
PC 3: Win 2000, D-Link 520 wireless NIC
PC 4: Win 2000, D-Link 520 wireless NIC

File & Print sharing is allowed on all. All security settings are the same on all. All have null passwords, no user name or passwords are required to log on locally.

All 4 can see each other.
PC 1 & 2 can browse each other's folders. (both have Microsoft networking hardware (the router and NIC))
PC 3 & 4 can browse each other, and browse 1 & 2 also.

Now here's the problem. When sitting at PC 1 or 2 and trying to browse 3 or 4, I get a dialog box titled Enter Network Password with the 2 fields "Connect As" and "Password". I have no idea what user name or password that would be, none of these PCs are set up to require any.

I suspect the D Link nics but I've found no settings to not require a password. I suspect them because the PCs with the MS network hardware can browse each other but not the D Link pcs, and the D Link PCs can browse each other PLUS the two with MS hardware.
Any help would be appreciated.

You should first check the Advanced Sharing settings via the Network and Sharing Center, make sure that the "Use account names and passwords to access other computers" isn't checked.

Also check the time/date settings on the machine to make sure it's set exactly the same as the other machines.

I am increasingly frustrated with the netoworking in Windwos 7. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate on one machine (Primary Desktop) Windows 7 Premium on my main laptop and Windows xP SP3 on my older laptop.

It seems I managed to get all the computers to see each other, except the XP machine cannot see the W7 machines of course...(why not?) though I am still not sure how I did that much.

I am still amazed how a company can be so successful while providing no documentation to speak of or any support without a major charge. Even going online to look for solutions, really is a futile search.

So anyway, when I go to access either W7 machine from the other over the network, a dialog pops up entitled "Windows Security" that says "Enter Network Password"

Well, I never set one up. I have no idea what that is or where it is coming from. I have all the advanced sharing permissions set so that there is supposed to be no password.

I went on each machine and set all the drives to share with all users...etc., and this still comes up. I am really pissed honestly. I dont see why this has to be setup so difficult. I thought Windows 7 was supposed to be better and easier to use...well...its not.

Can someone help with this? I just want my router to be my security point, and the rest of my home network to be totally open. I want to simply be able to designeated shared drives and folders on the machine on which they reside...just like Windows XP did. Cant it be the simpl... Read more

A:Enter network password??? Wtf?

If you plan on sharing entire drives accross your network you need to set the drives permission settings using the "sharing tab" but more importantly for sharing drives you need to go into the "Security tab" and allow the drive to be accessed by "Everyone". The picture below should help. From a security stand point you would be better off just sharing the entire User folder instead.

As for sharing with the XP machine, make sure the workgroup name is the same then run the XP network set up wizard and allow some folders to be shared. It's worked for me everytime. If it's XP pro then you should disable simple file sharing.

Hi,
I currently have two pcs running Windows 7 Home Premium at Service Pack 1. The two pcs - one a laptop and the other a desktop - are connected through a Netgear router. From the desktop, I can access the laptop from the desktop directly, without a prompt for user id and password, but when I try to access the desktop from the laptop I am prompted for a network user id and password and have no idea what to enter.
Because I just recently had a Vista pc in the mix, I am using workgroup rather than homegroup. The workgroup on both pcs is set equal to WORKGROUP.
I have turned on Network Discovery, File and Printer Sharing, Public Folder Sharing, and 128 bit encryption. Password Protected Sharing is turned off.
I have deleted all credentials from both machines, so Windows Credentials, Certificate-Based Credentials, and Generic Credentials are set to No Windows credentials, No certificates, and No generic credentials respectively.
The guest user is defined on the desktop without a password, but is not defined on the laptop.

I should mention that until last night I was able to access the desktop from the laptop without being prompted for user id and password.

Actually, I found that entering any string as userid and password gets you past the prompt and allows you to access shared drives on the desktop. Once entered, the prompt disappears for the duration of the current boot, re-appearing only when the laptop is restarted.

Have a dilemma here about this "Enter Network Password" issue.

Been reading some of the other threads and tried some of the settings offered and still nothing seems to work. I'm not understanding why I have to enter a network password and where its coming from. Obliviously its from Windows 7. Also I'm assuming the enter network password is for the homegroup? I don't even have homegroup setup or enabled. If it was once setup and then disabled will the password prompt still pop-up? I'm currently using the work network as the network location, with password protect sharing off and under Homegroup connections use User Account and passwords.

I have a windows server 03 running and all my comps can login with the 03 local account but windows 7 wont let me with out putting in a "Enter Network Password". I even tested this using XP on vmware bridged environment and it let me login. So I dont know what the deal is with Windows7.

In the last couple of days I am receiving a pop up box "Enter Network Password". It keep coming back no matter what I do. This happened several years ago but I can't remember how to disable it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I believe it comes from Microsoft Outlook somehow. See photo. Thx. Micromos

 

A:Enter Network Password pop up

I would assume it comes from your email program as it has your email information entered.

I assume you check the box that says "Save this password...." and it still comes up? Does Outlook still receive email, doe sit still send email? In Outlook you can have it setup so that it has an username and password enabled for sending so maybe only that part is wrong, but that setting is best set to use the same settings as the incoming server.

If so you must enter the correct email password associated with that email address, if you are unsure what that password is you will need to contact WowWay to get the password reset or to find out what is wrong. It may be that they have updated their email service and you need to reenter the email settings in Outlook.

Seem strange?

I think is may be linked to our domain (Geecs.com) network setting which turns out to be the same as our homepage. The strange thing is the pop up wants to access out web page (66.48.93.132) but the domain network is not connected in any way to the homepage.

I am setting up a NAS on my home network. The unit is a Seagate STCR4000101. The primary purpose of this unit is to store backups from the 4 computers on the network.
During the installation/setup, I was asked if I wanted to have a private folder. It was highly recommended that backups be placed in a private folder for security purposes. So, I initially set up one.
This unit is recognized on my network and I have access to all the public folders through Windows file explorer. However when trying to view contents of the private folder, I get a dialog box titled "Windows Security", prompting for a user name and password. I've tried just about every user name and password that I know that might be associated with windows or windows networking - none have worked. The only thing that I haven't tried is a user name and password for signing into windows. I don't have one because I don't use one. Is it necessary to have a user account that has a password and that password is the one that is being prompted for?
If that might not be the reason, what password/username is it requesting, and where can I find it if I have created one and I forgot.
I understand there is a way to get rid of the password prompt, but will that give me access to the private folder?

Is it separate or different from the Windows On-line account password ?

Same for user...is it the current users name...is it the current PC's name....or is it the name the MS account is using
Thanks....TiminAz

A:What is this network password prompt asking for ?

The user name is the current user name of the comp you want to access. BUT, you must prefix it with the comp name.
e.g. MARYANNES-WIN10\username

Naturally, the password is for the 'username' account.

These credentials should be stored in ctrl-panel\Credential Manager\Windows Credentials.

Hope this helps.

I am attempting to connect to my new roommate's network, which is password-protected, but it does not prompt me for the password and therefore won't allow me to connect to the internet.

It will begin the connection process, and declare that it has connected, but it really is not connected. Also, when trying to connect, Windows informs me that I am missing a "certificate."

No one else has an issue connecting.

This is on an HP Mini, with a "broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN", with Windows XP.

Thank you.
 

A:No network password-prompt

What's the exact version of Windows on each machine? XP-Home or XP-Pro on yours? How about his?
Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

I've set all the Advanced Sharing settings as I always do, with no password for sharing, Network discovery, sharing allowed, but one PC on this network insists on prompting for a Network password when trying to connect to the other. It stopped for awhile but is back to doing it again now, also apparently blocking sync via Skydrive Skyshell. Is there another setting I need to check which I'm missing?

A:What causes prompt for Network password?

Hey Greg,

I'm sure you are aware of this but the time/date settings between those machines needs to be in sync or there will be problems.

Sometimes if the bios clock or the routers clock is off it can also cause problems.

I have Windows XP and I use Outlook 2003 for e-mails. I have not been able to receive or send e-mails from Outlook for several days because of the "Enter Network Password" pop-up. I entered the password that worked in December 2012 but that did not work this time. I checked with my ISP, ATT. They were no help. This has happened in the past but I was always able to get the pop-up to disappear by entering different passwords. It didn't work this time. Can you help me? Fortunately, I am able to get my e-mails using ATT.net (Yahoo) but I prefer Outlook and that is where my full contact list is.

Using Outlook Express 2003 for years. Suddenly started getting asked to "Please type your user name and password" even though it has not changed. This pops up each time I get new mail, open Outlook Express, or click send/receive. It will not let me "Save this password....." and the dialog box will only close if I select cancel.

When selecting cancel, I get the following error: Task 'pop.secureserver.net-Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC92): 'Youe e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password in your account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts. The server responded: -ERR account disabled'

The new e-mail loads or is received whether I cancel the error dialog box or not. The account settings should not have changed but were checked any way but still get this error. We use the gmail server.

Can someone help me stop this popup?

Thanks in advance!

I have a network with XP as host (& access to internet) and a PC with 98se as a client. After MUCH trial & MANY errors I have file sharing, internet access and printer sharing. Very, very happy except for:
1 - The XP takes almost 1 minute to find the 98se. Then every thing is great.
2 - When stating or rebooting the 98se it can not find the XP UNTIL I log off. This is when I first get a dialog box (Enter Network Password). After explorer restarts everything is great until next start up.
This seems to be a setting, unchecked box or registry setting problem but I can not find anything to tweak to fix it.
ANY help or ideas would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance
 

A:Do not get Enter Network Password dialog box

instead of logging off or rebooting, can you please next time open a command prompt, and type:

ipconfig /renew

and then tell me if this sorts the problem. you may have to run this on both computers.

Hi,

I am having trouble connecting to my wired media drive from my desktop running Windows 7 64bit. I can see the drive (media device) but each time i try to connect it pops up with "Enter Network Password" box. It asks me to enter user name and password.

I have turned off password protection from advanced sharing settings and rebooted. I have also tried this using the administration account.

I dont know what the user name and password is.... I have tried all combinations including my sign on account user name and password.

I have even disabled the guest account but no joy.

Bearing in mind this is a complete new install of windows 7

Could anyone help me please?

OS: Windows 2000 Professional SP2
Internet Explorer: 6

Problem: everytime I open IE or connecting to MSN Messenger or similar applications (which ever requiring to connect to internet) this little window of "Enter Network Password" pops up. But it does NOT pop up randomly like people with the same problem when they use Outlook.

The username and password are saved, but the problem is that i have to click "Enter" for IE to proceeds or for MSN messenger to logon.

Please advise if there are ways to eliminate this pop-up.

Thanks ^^.

A:Annoying "Enter Network Password" pop-ups

!!!SOLVED!!!

Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> "Connection" Tab -> "LAN settings" -> uncheck "Automatically detect setting" and uncheck "(something like) Use Auto Assigned Script"

Note. This solution is for those whose problem is described above, i.e. I don't know if this would work if you are one of those experiencing the pop-up constantly/randomly with Outlook.

A:Enter Network Password * Constantly

As a matter of interest, I'd be very grateful for a definitive answer to this as well. Although I too have been plagued by this since recently installing Windows 7 64-bit, I did use to have the problem with Outlook Express on XP as well, although it seemed to be slowly disappearing of it's own accord. I've read answers elsewhere on this forum that relate to Yahoo e-mail accounts; I have a variety of accounts most of which are Hotmail and a couple of which relate to my own website (which I won't be self-serving enough to post details of here!). The problem seems to occur on all of the accounts, though mainly the Hotmail and .msn ones, and the 'enter network password' window is popping up several times a day (often several times in an hour ... !) which is really annoying!! I've checked a number of other forums and tried some of the answers suggested therein, so far without any success whatsoever. I really don't want to start messing with the registry unless I absolutely have to; although I do have some computer-savvy, that's an area that I feel is best left alone unless there's really no other choice!

Any and all answers will be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you.
