Unable to ping my iPhone on any WiFi outside my home network

Q: Unable to ping my iPhone on any WiFi outside my home network

Hi,

There's a program I use (Pocket Informant iPhone Outlook Sync) which requires that my PC and iPhone be on the same network in order to sync.

The problem is that it works only when using my home network. When I'm at home, from my PC I am able to successfully ping my iPhone, which is connected to my WiFi network. This works whether myh PC is also ethernet-connected or WiFi-connected.

When I travel, however, even though I successfully connect to the WiFi network on my iPhone and PC, I am unable to ping my iPhone.

I have tried disabling the Windows Firewall and I get the same result!

I can't believe that all these different WiFi networks I connect to (airport, hotel, work) that they all have a configuration issue, so I'm thinking that the reason for the discrepancy must be because of some setting/configuration on my PC/home network.

Is there anyhing else besides disabling the Windows Firewall that I can try?

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Unable to ping my iPhone on any WiFi outside my home network

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: Unable to ping my iPhone on any WiFi outside my home network

You wouldn't want your devices pingable from a public network... thus the reason they're configured this way.

Hi,

I need some help with Win7 wifi. I'm trying to create an ad-hoc wifi network between my Windows 7 laptop (Toshiba c650) and my samsung wave y handset. My wifi card is atheros-AR9285. When I connect to this network from my wifi, connectivity is established, but with some problems:

[1] It takes a long time for the ad-hoc network to show in the network-and-sharing centre.

[2] The signal strength is most of the time weak with just one bar visible (though my handset sits just besides my laptop. Do you think it could be conflicting with my neighbour's access-point with much higher signal strength?)

[3] The handset is assigned an IP in the range of 169.254.*, but when I ping this address from DOS, I get the error "PING: transmit failed. General failure.". I even tried to assign a static IP to my handset, but when connected, it automatically changes to 169.254.* range. What could be the issue here ?

Cheers,

Prahlad.

Have you tried using the connectify software for this?

Your Hotspot, Your Way - Connectify

It should work with any Windows 7 certified driver to create a secondary access point from your machine. It uses the Microsoft Virtual WiFi miniport adaptor for this which should install with your Windows 7 certified wireless driver. You should be able to see it there in Device Manager under Network connections.

Hi,

I have a laptop with Windows 7 and another with Windows Vista. The one with Windows 7 is in a domain as it is provided by my employer.

I have a home network with a linksys wireless router. The router is connected to a DSL modem. Once I connect my laptops to the router over wifi, I am able to access internet from both of them.

The ipconfig of the laptops shows as below:

I initially thought that something may be wrong with my router, but since I am able to do a one way ping, I dont think that is the reason.

Further, if I start a web server (ex: IIS or Apache) on my Windows 7 laptop, I am not able to access its home from the Windows Vista machine by using the URL http://192.168.0.3

I'm using a Visa home Premium on my Sony Vaio which is connected to a Wifi connection. I setup a home network using a ethernet cable to another laptop, but unable to receive internet signal on the 2nd computer. On the Access showing: Ipv4 local and Ipv6 limited

please help!

A:Unable to hook up a WIFI to home Network

Am I to understand that you are recieving Wifi on your vaio and have physically connected your 2nd laptop via an ethernet cable? If so, ICS (internet connection sharing) needs to be enabled on your vaio.

Navigate to your network connections, select your wifi connection on your vaio, right click on properties and click on the sharing tab and select the

"Allow other users to connect through this internect connection" check box.

Should start working instantly, but a restart of both may be necessary.

Hope that helps

Hey,

I have an Acer Aspire that shows my home network and at full strength, but won't connect. It will however connect to other wifi, as well as my iPhone hotspot. Other devises in the house will also connect to the router, so the problem doesn't seem to be there. I was told that my settings are probably off and that I needed to create a new home ip address. Tried doing the ipconfig/release and then renew, but that doesn't work if I can't connect to that IP address. How can I get it to recognize the IP address?

Thanks

This alas, is a very well known and oft posted problem (www.whirlpool.com.au) and appears unresolvable!

Basically my Iphone - sitting on top of the router - will not consistantly connect AND maintain the connection.

If I keep at it over and over again it will eventually connect but then lose same in a matter of a few seconds.

As this NETGEAR modem also handles my wife's PC and a laptop without any problems, I have to believe it is in the iPhone settings that the problem exists!

OK, I have done the following:

1. Done a factory reset on the NETGEAR modem
2. Reset the iPhone to factory (Yuck!)
3. Reset over and over again the NETWORK SETTINGS on the iPhone
4. Set up "another" network with NETGEAR to see if the default one it finds is "faulty"
5. Pretty well done everything that has been suggested on the www.whirlpool forums where, as above, thias is a very common problem, all to no avail!

Everything points to a weak, poor or broken NETGEAER conection but the little connection ICON comes in loud and clear and when I do finally get a connection it works fine - for a few seconds!

The iPhone worked well on this exact system setup after purchase and it is only in the last few weeks that it has gone bad!

Wonder if I reset the phone back to original via iTunes if that would work?

My old computer crashed and I'm now on a new PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
I installed the latest iTunes successfully, but found that my iPhone 4 is now not syncing with it.

It can detect the phone, but it's not adding or deleting anything - apps, music or photos. I used to be able to select a Photo Folder to sync from the PC hard drive, but now it no longer works. It, however, works well with my notebook which is running on Win Vista.
There is no error message, the sync and backup apparently goes on only for a few seconds, and then iTunes says it is searching for which apps to install but nothing changes. Even when I've clicked Apply.

I've also tried closing iTunes and I've rebooted the phone but no dice. I've also uninstalled iTunes to reinstall. Doesn't work either. And yes, I installed with the 64-bit installer.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated!

Every time I connect to my home network with iPhone 4 my whole network stops working. Windows 7 is not reporting any problems with connection, nor is my router. I have cable connection with my PC and wireless with my laptop, they both just stop working without any visible reason. Even the iphone i connect with wont work, but of course it says its connected and everything is ok.

I tought it was an iOS 5 problem, so I reinstalled it. It worked for an hour then its all back again. I even tried sharing my PC connection so that my iPhone is connected to PC and not directly to router. But that produced the same results.

My roomate's iphone 3gs with iOS5 works normally.

Any ideas? Thnx.
 

A:iPhone kills home network

Is your network slowing to a crawl, or really not working? Can you still ping the router from one of the computers?

I've seen a few people report that with the latest iOS update all their "stuff" is automatically uploaded to 'the cloud" and that has seriously limited any other use of their network. I believe that there is a setting telling the iPhone to not do the backup until further notice. If this turns out to be the issue you can let it do the uploading when no one is trying to network.

I have a wireless home netwerk using at&t 2wire. It uses WEP encryption. I have heard that the IPhone does not work with WEP and WPA/WPA2 should be used instead. I'd like to get some feedback from the experts on this forum as to whether this would make the IPhone usable on a home network and whether making this security change is a good idea. If the change to WPA is made, is there anything else required to make the IPhone work on the network, or will it then be automatic? Everything works fine right now on my home setup and I want to make sure I don't mess anything up by making changes. Please comment. Thanks very much in advance.
 

A:Wireless home network and IPhone

Well, WPA or WPA2 is far better than WEP in any case, so even if the iPhone works with WEP, I'd move up to real encryption anyway.

I have two computers on the same WiFi network at home and for some reason from time to time the ping response time pinging my laptop computer from my desktop computer results in rather bad response times of about 100 ms up to 500 ms where the response time normally is approx 1-2 ms. When this happens it's usually fixed by restarting the laptop PC but would still be nice to know what is the actual cause behind this and if there is any way to fix it other than restarting the laptop. Might also mention that the problem is only in one direction, from the desktop computer to the laptop. I've never seen the same problem from the laptop to the desktop PC.

Any good suggestions how I could find out what is causing this?

A:Slow ping over WiFi network

Try running a constant ping to your router. Do this on both computers.

See this post if you need help doing that:

See the post below the one linked to above. Use a tool like inSSIDer to help determine if you should move to another channel.

Hey guys, i have a really frustrating problem.

I'm setting up a home network. My main computer called ARES runs windows 7 and has a workgroup called WORKGROUP, and shares a folder called SHARED.

Another XP computer at home can see ARES and its shared folder - SHARED.

I have a DELL GX280 called LIVING_ROOM and have been having a a lot of trouble trying to get it connected to the workgroup.

So I decided to format and reinstall windows XP on LIVING_ROOM.

After I installed drivers and a wireless card on LIVING_ROOM i tried to ping to it from ARES - no dice.

I can ping from LIVING_ROOM to ARES but not the other way around!

Ping says - Destination host unreachable

There's no firewall, no antivirus - its a fresh install of XP and connect over a wireless.

The PC is an old enterprise system - the BIOS could be changed. Could anything in the BIOS lock down home networking????

Please help!!! I'm gonna punch something soon!!!

A:Cannot ping to new computer on home network

UPDATE:

I have found now it is an issue with the wireless card - Dlink DWL-G510

When we connect over ethernet we can connect to the workgroup. But when we pull out the ethernet and connect over wireless - its cannot find the PC's.

What options should we check?

Hello! First time here.

I have four computers on a home network, two (A&B) running Win7 Home Premium 64bit. Two (C&D) running XP SP3. The two Win7's are recent installs but I had lot's of similar troubles with an earlier install of Win7 Ultimate, so I switched to Home hoping I could fix this. Yeah, right.

Belkin N750 router. All wired. All are named Workgroup. All computers can access the internet. All can access and share files except B, C & D can't access or ping A. I'm running Norton NIS 2011 on each machine and the security map sees all computers properly. I've run a couple different LAN programs from B,C & D and each time they can see A is on the network but still can't access it.

I've disabled the NIS firewall,uninstalled NIS and even booted in Safe Mode (with NIS installed) and still can't ping A.

I've tried both static and DHCP on A, set NetBios over TCP/IP.

I've spent many many hours working on this and twice as many searching the net and trying fixes but nothing has worked so far. I know it's probably something simple but so far I can't seem to find it. I hate to reinstall Win7 because the problem has been here since the beginning.

I find it absolutely ridiculous that so many have similar issues with Windows networking. TeamViewer needs to build an alternative to Microsoft's network. I had a similar nightmare with Windows Remote Desktop a few years back and TV fixed that problem instantly.

Ideas?

Thanks.

Good day guys,

Before I start with my question, I would like to greet you all a happy day!

I have a problem with one of my network client pertaining to pinging the gateway. We have firebox that serves as gateway aside from the router. It happened this morning where my client came to me and catch my attention on his problem. He was trying to browse the Internet and with no luck, since this most common problem, I have tried checking it to my workstation and browse the Internet with luck.

Further ahead, I checked his TCP/IP configuration and all are present starting from IP, Masks, gateway to DNS. I assumed that everything is fine but when I tried pinging the gateway in said mobile computer I encountered request timeout. So what I did was to check mine and fortunately was able to ping said gateway. I did not stop searching for faults, so I tried doing same process to other worstations and luckily was able to ping the gateway aside from his unit.

I tried flushing everything from releasing and renewing his ip but no luck. Now I'm stuck with 2 options, 1. is to delete his value in the DHCP server 2. is to reinstall his network NIC.

Guys, can you help me in this one, for it is totally weird, and I assumed that said network client had installed some torrent apps or alter some nic's config that loss his accessibility to the gateway.

Looking forward for your help on this matter.

Thanks,
Norms

First - I can't ping anything. I can't ping any website but yet I do have internet access.
Second, I have been experiencing periodic slowdowns on my home network. Oddly my Sprint speed tests will show me getting the proper speed and yet actually getting around the net is excruciatingly slow. Sometimes the connection is even refused on very common sites (sony or amazon for example). Tonight I reset my router and now I seem to be surfing at speed again but I still can't ping anything.
Router is D-Link DI-624
Browser is Firefox most of the time. But the same issue was present using IE.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Can't ping anything and periodic home network slowdowns

Firewalls are the only things that can restrict access for some things, while allowing access to others. So, if you can surf the net, a firewall of some kind must be blocking your pings or the reply's to your pings.

If resetting the router speeds you up, reset the router; you might also look for firmware/software updates.

Linksys router (Tomato firmware), set up in wireless client mode + 2 computers

The Wireless client mode works perfect. Everything jives. Every computer can ping the others on both subnets. But I can only 'browse' to the computers on the same subnet, not outside. My Windows 7 Homegroup is messed up. My VNC sessions between computers won't connect via PC name, but will connect via IP address.

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone has ever run into an instance where you have a pc connected to a network (correct IP/sub/gateway, can access the internet) and are unable to get a Ping response back from it.

I just explained over the phone to someone how to connect their computer to a network I help manage. They are in another state, so I can't exactly go over to the machine and look at it myself. However, they were able to follow instructions, get connected to the wireless network, receive the right IP from the wireless DHCP, access the internet, access other servers on the network.. But when I try to ping or scan the network for the computer, it does not show up. This is important because there is a piece of remote management software running on the computer that I need to connect to and make further changes on. I can see all of the other computers on the network, but not this one. I cannot remotely connect to the IP either. Packets are sending and receiving from it fine. It's a toshiba portege convertible laptop/tablet using an intel pro wireless card to connect to the network. Any ideas?

Hi again to all, hopefully someone can help me.

I have a network printer which I cannot print to (nor can i ping it) from one machine. The PC is a Windows XP machine (PC_A). The printer is on the same LAN as PC_A. I tried it with another PC, this time a Win7 machine (PC_B ) and the printer doesn't have any problem. From PC_A, i can ping PC_B (and vice versa). However, i cannot ping the printer from PC_A (it's ok with PC_B ). Both PCs are getting IP address from a DHCP server, so i don't suspect it to be a subnet issue. Also, PC_A used to be able to access the printer (I cannot pinpoint what changed, and when it started happening.)

Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks.

I am sure it is something stupid I am overlooking, but been at it a full day now, and the numbers are all starting to look the same. Need to have this thing running in the next day or two, all and any help appreciated.

Here is the deal...have a Cisco 1721. Will be used to connect to a DSL modem. ISP uses a static IP, with the default gateway listed in the same subnet (more in a second). On the internal side, will be seporting an enterprise of about 50 users.

After initial configurations, the DHCP function is working, port forwarding from the outside to an internal webserver/ftp server is working. But I am unable to ping the default gateway supplied by the ISP and am unable to access the Internet from within the internal network.
Info provided by the ISP:

Availabe IPs:
156.X.X.186 to 156.X.X.190
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.248
Default Gateway: 156.34.129.85

I only need to utilize one of the available IPs provided, in this case the .186.

Below is my current configuration....what am I missing?

I have a wired desktop PC (HP dx2480) running XP SP3 connected to a LinkSys Wireless 4-port router, and a laptop (Lenovo X61) running XP SP3 connected wireless to the same home network (192.168.0.x). The LinkSys connects by cable to a DSL router for internet access. Both PC and laptop get DHCP IPs from the Linksys (which I have hard-coded - mapped MAC to IP). They are on the same Windows Workgroup "HOME". Both Desktop and Laptop have same Windows User Logins.

My desktop had a virus attack (trojan), which I removed and re-installed XP SP3 (from HP disks). Since then the PC seems to have "network sharing and discovery issues" on the network.

Read a lot of tech-blogs but can't seem to figure out the problem. I'll add some more details on problems, and things I have tried.

- The wired PC CAN ping the laptop, but laptop CANNOT ping PC.
- Both laptop and PC CAN access the internet.
- The laptop and PC COULD NOT see each other on Windows Workgroup, or see shares. This got resolved once I added IPX/SPX/NetBios Protocol on both the wired and wireless NICs on both PC/laptop respectively. NOTE: Before adding this protocol, I double-checked that File-Printer Sharing was enabled on both NICs, Windows Firewall had File-Print Sharing as exclusion. I tried everything including disabling firewall on both, disabling McAfee scanning on both, disabling Firewall on Linksys, but nothing worked.

Unable to see home network computers in Windows Explorer Network screen.

I have a home network with 2 laptops and 1 desktop. The desktop I use as a "file server" in that all work done on the laptops is stored to the desktop. The desktop computer name is HAL. One laptop is fine and sees the network. The other just stopped seeing it; rebooted the laptop; rebooted HAL; did a number of refreshes without any luck. I opened EXCEL and found a worksheet that was listed that I knew was saved on HAL. Was able to open the file and when I tried the SAVE AS I could navigate through all of HAL just as normal. Went to Windows Explorer and still no HAL listed as a COMPUTER on the NETWORK. I have a internet connection so I know I am making it to the router at least. And when I check NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER it shows an active home network. The laptop is running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 Build 7601. Thanks in advance for any help! George

Okay, so my desktop is connected to the network by wifi to the wireless N (plus B and G) router. It connects to the internet fine and dandy. My iPhone can connect to the router, but drops the wifi signal most of the time. It doesn't seem to want to hold the connection because of either distance or interference from the wall or whatever.

What I want is to connect the iPhone's wifi to the computer for a stronger connection. But I don't want to move the router because it's centrally located and my office is kinda further away from it.

Equipment:
1 computer
1 802.11n wireless USB adapter connected to computer
1 802.11g wireless PCI adapter connected to computer
1 802.11n router connected to internet
1 iPhone with 802.11b/g connectivity
Is it possible to do this? I know what people have done it with one wired connection and a wireless connection from the computer. But can it be done with TWO wireless adapters connected to the computer?

Thanks in advance for any replies....

PS...I know it'd be easier to just use the computer to browse the internet since I'd be in the office anyway...but I work as a 3D modeler and alot of times I'm testing renders for scenes and such and can't stop the render without losing the progress. If I browse while it's rendering, it's possible I can crash the computer because of the heavy resources the 3D engine is already using.
 

A:Possible to connect iPhone's wifi to computer that is connected by wifi to the net?

Doesn't hurt (except maybe your time) to try. Get an ad-hoc wireless network working between computer and iPhone (using dynamic addressing). Then in Network Connections bridge the two wireless connections.

If it doesn't work, show the following for the computer before you bridge and when you have the bridge.

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

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Hello,

Switched over the internet service provider to Time Warner. We are using the same router we have used before the switch (which was also with Time Warner service provider) and everything was working FINE before the switch. But now, with the new modem from service provider something is wrong -- My roommate is unable to connect her laptop, and her phone to the wifi even though the network is being detected. I can only connect to my laptop, which was the laptop I had opened to verify connectivity when the Technician was there. Also, my I-phone is unable to connect to the network even though it detects it. It's very odd considering we had the technician come out to resolve this issue in the first place. Could it be that the DHCP server has been turned off, so it's allowing only one device to connect to the one IP address on the modem?
Or do we need to delete the wifi networks off of our computers and other devices? My roommate tried that on her devices and still didn't connect. Please help.
 

A:Unable to connect multiple devices to home wifi

Do you know if your new modem includes WiFi? Is so, when you tested the connection with the technician present, did they have you connect wirelessly to your existing wireless router or to the modem itself?

Assuming you are running some version of Windows on the computer that can connect, please go into the Windows DOS/Command prompt screen and run an IPCONFIG /ALL command. Then copy and paste the complete results of the command here.

So I bought myself a MyBook Live NAS few weeks back and I'm a little concerned about security when hooking this up on wifi, home network.
I get that you need a password for connecting to a WPA2 secure network, and that my home network shows for everyone in my routers reach, but does the NAS show up for my neighbours? Does the NAS itself need password protection?
Sorry if this has been covered on another post, but beeing new to the whole NAS thing, I have no idea how to search up this particular problem.

A:[HELP] NAS on home network through wifi..

Well you could always disable the broadcast of your network name (SSID) that way your casual computer user with a laptop can't see your network listed if they are in range. That added to a really strong password to get on the wireless network and you should be golden. ~Random alphanumeric strings work best for passwords, wifi is no exception~

ping is not required to have connectivity - - it is only a test & traceroute tool.

From the client, get a command prompt (or in Linux a Terminal) use nslookup google.com
If it returns the IP address of google, then you can ignore the ping problem

Rule of thumb..

1. disable the wireless in windows
2. enable the wired in windows
3. if you get conneced on the wired in windows great if not?
4. if you great you're connected then enable the wireless got to 6.
5. if not so great you need to trouble shoot your router to see why it can't see the your PC, make sure DHCP is enabled
6. wait the wireless to connect again if it doesn't connect make sure got to step 5.

Also do this...
click on start
click on run
type: cmd
type: ipconfig /all make sure you don't see the 169.xxx address if you see that then better off rebooting the PC and reseting the router..

We have 2 XP computers and 2 Vista Home. Everything was fine with our old Linksys router. I put in a new Linksys router (WRT160n) and now, the Vista laptops can't see the others computers and can't ping them. The XP machines still work - they can see the Vista machines and their printers. All can get to the Internet just fine. Linksys will not help because we can get to the internet through the router and they tell me that is all they are responsible for.

This is what I have done:
1. I made sure all PCs are in the same workgroup, the network is private, and I set up the same user names on each PC. (I did the latter as a troubleshooting step - but I've never had to do this before, and this machine used to see the others without it.)
2. Network Discovery, etc., all except password protected sharing is On.
3. Firewall: Made sure that the IP range was allowed, and when that didn't work, disabled the firewall. (Tried McAfee, then Windows - tried them both, one at a time, then none - i never had them both running at the same time). Also, set them up to allow ping requests and opened system services ports as recommended by Microsoft in the Vista File and Printer Sharing document.
4. Made sure that all of the sharing was set up properly on the other PCs and printers.

Why SP2 (which is what you have in your Computer specs)? SP3 has been out for I forget how many years and nothing prior to SP3 has been supported by Microsoft for about two years. Also important (to me) is that SP3 fixed some networking issues and don't get really motivated to try to fix something that isn't really a problem.

Update to SP3, then install the latest wireless driver from Acer's web site.

A:Can't connect to Wifi on home network but everyone else can

I think its a security issue.
1) Check the password you put in and make sure its written correctly with the right case (lowercase/uppercase).
2) Disable any 3G/4G connections if you have any.

If that doesn't work giive me more information about your network:
1) General network layout (two computers, one laptop/one desktop, w/dsl modem to a residential gateway, etc)
2) Also, tell me what security mechanism you have on your wireless access point (WEP, WPA, WPA2). If you're using CCMP/AES and you have an older computer then you may not be able to use them together.

Now, I want to make home network and connect the service to more than one computer but it appear to the company as I am connected to one computer. My house is two floors cement house.

I know that I have options to connected the Wifi adapter to "female USB to male eithernet adapter" and the connect the last to the input of a router. However, I don't know what are a good router that can trasmit the signal on two floors cement house and if there are better options.

It is good idea to give links from ebay for item that is shipped to Oman.

Note: the small town company bought ADSL from the higher level ISP and distrubute the internet at good rates in the town as Wifi. People who are close to the company only need thier regular 802.11 adapter in thier laptop but the farthur need stronger reciever
