Preferred Solution: Networking issues after installing Windows 7 on one 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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Networking issues after installing Windows 7 on one computer

Shut down all computers. Boot the "host" (the one with the printer directly connected) and one other XP PC. See if you can get connected and print to the remote computer. If successful, boot one PC at a time and see if you can get working again. If unsuccessful with just the two PCs please show for each of them ...

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

Type the following commands:

nbtstat -n


[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.

I bought a Compaq Laptop in 2005 in India. I received an "Operating System CD" (That's what it says!) with XP Home SP2. The key was on a sticker below my laptop.
I recently changed over to a Mac and want to install XP on it (Sorry!). Can I do that legally without any hassles? Also, I have moved to the US now, so does that matter? (Are licenses for particular areas only?)
Thanks a ton!

A:Installing Windows from a CD which came with one computer on another: Legal Issues

If the software is legit (easily checked by the COA you have stuck to the machine) then to install it to another machine would be okay provided that you remove it from the laptop (can only be installed on 1 machine). There are a couple of problems you may come across. If the laptop has a version of XP that's been volume licensed by Compaq then it won't install on the other machine. If it's the full (or OEM) version then it should be okay. You would likely have to ring MS to activate it and explain to them that it has been moved from one machine to another. They are pretty helpful with this type of problem and as long as you are genuine in your approach then there shouldn't be any major problem.

(After doing much research) I have an older PC with XP SP3 that I want to upgrade to windows 7. First I want to clone the hard drive to an external drive then install the 7 on the computer (yes I have enough free space on the hard drive). From what I have read I will lose my documents and other files and programs I have installed. What I am worried about is the drivers. Are they left alone? Replaced? If 7 does not have an appropriate driver (like to the FAX modem) will the old one be retained? If not will my PC recognize any driverless hardware and try to find drivers via "plug and Play"? Can I import the missing driver from the clone? Thanks.

Ok, just upgraded to Windows 10 this week and been bashing my head bloody for two days on networking issues. What on the green Earth are my networking credentials in Win10? I have a Microsoft account I'm logging into Win10 pc with (which I hate but besides the point), everything is asking me for credentials, and I put in the email address and password I log into Windows with and it doesn't work. I have a network with a workgroup and homegroup set up, and my Win7 pc and Win8 pc have no problems talking to each other but My Win10 can't access the win7 pc, though it accesses the Win8 pc just fine. I also can't access a WDMyCloud on my network, it keeps asking me for Windows credentials and nothing I put in works, it does not like the email address/pass I use to log in to Windows 10 either. I'm literally stumped. Can someone help me out?

Hey all,
I have a wireless/wired network setup in my apartment. There are 3 computers connected to through wireless, and one connected through an ethernet cable. I'm having issues with only one of the wireless computers. It will connect fine, and work with a full internet connection. But if I take the netbook out of my apartment, or put it to sleep (or some other method of temporarily severing the connection) it has issues reconnecting beyond a local connection.

Restarting the computer, automatically getting new IP settings from the network adapter, resetting the network adapter, or disconnecting and reconnecting from the network don't help at all. It seems the only way to re-establish an internet connection (beyond local only connection) is to reset the router.

None of the other computers on the network are experiencing any issues at all.

Any suggestions? Thanks much

Hi guys,

I am happy with using my Windows 7 till recently I've decided to upgrade to Windows 8 Professional especially when it is given free by the University. I am using a Fujitsu Lifebook SH561 bought in Singapore. I've never had issues accessing the wireless at home with my Laptop with Win 7 installed.

However recently with the upgrade, my laptop will intermittently be disconnected to the wireless and can only be connected to the internet via LAN cable. Using the troubleshoot features, the results are "Gateway is not available". I've tried to search online for solutions but to no avail. Attached are some of the information suggested online that may be of use to anyone willing to help me out.

Any guidance to solve the issue will be deeply appreciated!

For updated drivers for the wireless try the Fujitsu support site or visit the Windows update center using the wired connection. Networking problems should be posted in the networking section.

A:Windows 7 to XP Networking Issues

This usually has to do with sharing permissions in XP.

Try this.

What I did was to disable the firewall on the XP Machine -- just for testing
reset all the file / print sharing options
then on the XP machine run the NETWORK SETUP WIZARD from the control panel -- not sure what this actually does BTW but at this stage I was going to try anything. I ensured the workgroup name was the same as the W7 / Vista computers. Also when this completes check Finish the wizard - don't run on other computers.

Re-boot the XP machine.

A:Windows 7 networking issues

Well, I'm on Win/7 Pro 64bit and do not use Homegroup to access my iMac, Win98se file server or 2 variations of Linux.

* 1) of course, all must be in the same WORKGROUP
* 2) XP/Pro SP2 has the LLTP service, but XP/SP1 needs to add it
* 3) There are two forms of sharing:
(a) Public anonymous​(b) Per User Sharing​Normal Simple File sharing will create (B) style and the remote will need the user/password for the directory being accessed.

Style (a) needs a special setup to access \\systemName\PublicShares shown here

However, I use style (b) to control who has access to what - - ie: if they don't know the user/password, then NUTS to them - - I can't trust'm.

Hi guys I'm having some problems with SMB style shares First some background My roommates and I are on a college campus and have always been able to access computers on the residential network via Network Neighborhood Workgroup aka SMB shares This was true regardless of operating system My server which sits in the next room is publicly accessible to those on the network For awhile it was running Windows XP Professional SP and everything was fine I then upgraded to Windows Ultimate It took me awhile to figure out how to do simple 7 OS networking Windows issues & X Ultimate folder shares and avoid the whole Homegroup nonsense since non-Win computers can't use those Eventually I got everything running with the same public Windows 7 Ultimate & OS X networking issues share folders and everything was fine Some time passed and we decided to upgrade the server's motherboard processor and RAM Our new motherboard is an Asus M A XTD EVO I planned to do a fresh install of Windows Ultimate but the operating system was clever enough to install all the appropriate drivers on its own I installed an upgraded chipset driver set and everything seemed fine But then the problems began Initially people transferring or streaming media from the server would be find themselves disconnected from the server regardless of operating system Basically while the server could be pinged the SMB Samba aspect identity of the server would disappear The server could still see other computers and still had internet so from its perspective everything was fine The only way to allow other computers to connect to shared server folders again was to reboot the server I tried several things to correct this from changing the quot network type quot e g from home to public enabling and disabling IPv etc etc Eventually something I did I still don't know what enabled Windows computers in particular other Windows machines and one Windows XP Pro laptop to remain connected without issue However those using Apple computers including me are unable to maintain a consistent network connection with the server requiring frequent reboots and resulting in annoyance My initial thought is simply a network driver issue given the recent hardware change but according to Windows Update we're using the latest and greatest drivers and I haven't heard of anybody having this issue on the Asus boards and support Subjectively it feels like the disconnects and subsequent connection refusals occur when quot too many quot people are connected but I have had instances where I'm the only one connected and then I'll suddenly get disconnected so that's probably not the case I should also point out that following a disconnection when attempting to reconnect the error message that quot the server cannot be connected to reached etc quot happens immediately - that is it doesn't actually sit there and try to connect for an extended period of time This suggests to me that its effectively quot finding quot the server but its been blacklisted for whatever reason Any thoughts suggestions hints would be greatly appreciated P S Why is simply sharing a folder such a giant pain I don't want to deal with all this user password guest stuff - I want a simple folder share without any form of authentication required And when I do share folders in Win randomly the quot Users quot folder gets shared too which I don't want at all

Everytime I try and access the C: Drive on the Server I get the following:

"c" is available, but the user account you are trying to log on with was denied access.

windows cannot further diagnose the problem because network diagnostics does not know the user name and password that is required to connect to the shared folder.

A:Windows XP Home/Windows 7 Networking: Sharing issues.

The usual fix for the can't access Win 7 machine from XP is listed below.

On the Windows 7 machine navigate to the following registry key.
create or modify 32-bit DWORD: LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy
set the value to: 1

You don't need to use static IP's to fix this type of problem, use DHCP, it works fine for me in every situation.

Also check the time/date settings on both machines and make sure they are in sync. This will also cause problems with sharing.

As for permissions you will need to add Everyone to the list on the XP machine. Windows 7 has a similar feature but Everyone is already on the list you just need to go through the steps.

Perform the following steps on the XP machine, but because you are already sharing the entire C: drive you must have already done this step. It's not recommended to share the entire drive because it's considered to be a security risk.

I have networked two computers, one Windows XP (32bit) and the other Windows Vista (Ultimate x64)

From the Vista computer I can access shared folders on the XP computer

On the XP computer I cannot see any of the Vista shared folders

I can't get Print Sharing to work (the printer is connected to the XP computer)

When I try to play games over LAN both computers cannot see the other one

I've tried the following;

Disabling firewalls on both computers...

Using the same workgroup name on both computers (MSHOME)...

Connecting the computers without an internet connection...

Turned on all "sharing and discovery" options in windows vista (network sharing center)

...... out of ideas, you have any techspot???

Same issue with the X64-XP with X32-XP they have the same problems. I know that Vista has some issues with XP with networking that's. Most of us networking guys at work just either have Vista on all the PCs or just revert back to XP. I think there is something you can do it's on

So ever since I got a new computer with windows 8 I've had issues networking with my other windows 7 machine. I eventually resolved the issues with my other machine by disabling the firewall on the windows 7 machine (it's a media server so there was no need to have it online).

But now all of a sudden I'm having issues again and can't figure out why. I can see my other machine in my network listing and sometimes I can connect to it and sometimes I can't. Diagnostics just say "everything is set up right but we can't communicate with the machine". And when I can connect to it it keeps cutting out and videos will end abruptly and it's impossible to transfer anything without it getting disruped halfway through.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

A:Constant issues with Windows 8 networking to Windows 7

You shouldn't need to disable any firewalls for basic networking between these Op systems.

I'd suspect that a third party anti virus software is involved.

Have you tried setting up a Homegroup between these machines?

Is this a single router network or do you have another access point in the network?

A:Need help. Re installing Windows 7 to fix issues

Wait, slowly now . First of all you need to type properly if you want people to help you... Fix up your grammar. Now, from what I understand, you want to format your computer clean and install Windows 7 on the 320GB HDD right? Are both your HDD's internal? And did you buy Windows 7 from retail?

I recently purchased a Linksys router which requires Windows Service Pack 3 for installation. I installed the update on Windows Update and it shows it as sucessful, however I have restarted my computer several times and is still running on SP2 when I check "My Computer - Properties", and the router set-up CD is still saying I need to upgrade to SP3. Why is it not working? I have searchd everywhere on the computer to see if maybe the files need to be Run, but I cannot find them. I am totally at a loss to figure out how to complete the update and continue installing my router. Please help!
Thank you,

So I just built my new computer. All is well until I try to install Windows. When I get the blue screen which installs all of the necessary drivers and whatnot to start the Windows installation it just hangs at the "Setup is starting Windows" message on the bottom of the screen. This is just before where you choose where to install Windows, create partitions and all of that fun stuff.

Any help getting Windows to install would be great, so far I'm stumped.

Hi mikemjscott , 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Did you manage to install the drivers from the support site.
Would you have the machine number from the sticker or check it from the parts lookup page.
Just keep your serial number confidential.

I can only tell you what is written in the link you?ve posted: Check the BIOS if "Fullscreen" is enabled and update your Videodrivers.

I have crippled a brand new unused Lenovo G580 Laptop trying to install windows 8.

Attempted to install from a USB drive after the install from desktop option failed due to "cannot initialize start menu" error.

Having loaded the USB on the "Where do you want to install windows 8?" menu my HD was listed in 4 partitions: 1= system Drivers (system), 2 = Windows 7 (Primary), 3 = Lenovo (Primary) 4 = Lenovo_Part (reserved)

Installation was not possible on any drive to due error message : "The selected disk has an MBD Partition table. On EFI systems Windows can only be installed to GTP disks"

I then stupidly clicked on format and formatted partition 2 which contained the Windows 7 OS thinking that would let me install 8. However even after that the same error message prevents installation and now i've lost my windows 7 files meaning the laptop no longer runs.

Can anyone give me some sage advice or point to where I might get some?

I wanted to do a reinstall of Windows 7 and so far it's done nothing for me except cause stress and frustration. First it tells me it cannot install to disc because it's GPT, whatever that means... So I'm told to do Shift+F10 and enter these commands:

select disk 0
convert GPT

This appeared to work but then I got a different message. It reads "Windows cannot be installed to the disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

Not sure what to do from here... It managed to install Ubuntu so the HDD itself is fine. It's just Windows 7.
I'm on an Acer Aspire V531 BTW.

Please help this is my only computer....

You cannot use an usb that had windows 7 loaded on it to install on the hp. it will be preactivated and have the dell logo, it will be an oem addition of windows and it won’t match your hardware on your hp, your wireless will not work until you download all your correct drivers.

Hello...I will start from the begining .

I bought the Acer V5 and tried booting it came with boot-up Linux which means nothing to me so I made a Windows 8 bootable USB and the problems started. First I could'n find the USB and after enabling the Legacy mode it finally found it and booted from it. Turned out the partitions are GPT and as I made the USB MBR it couldn't install so I canceled which I guess was my mistake but there was no other option. After that I created the bootable USB with GPT partition scheme and tried again. Unfortunately this time I got something called GNU GRUB....wth? I googled around and found the commands required for booting - root (hd1,0), then chainloader +1 and finally boot. Then I get the famous The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors with Status: 0xc000000e. Of course tried that couple of more times but still to no avail. I cannot recover or repair as Windows was never really installed, so I don't know what to do....Hopefully someone here would be able to help. Thanks in advance guys.

I've just purchased a laptop (without a cd-drive) and wanted to install Office.

As a student I have free access to Office 2007 (Microsoft Office Suite 2007 Service Pack 1 32-bit (English) - MSDNAA).

I'm currently using Office Starter 2010.

Now when I download the iso file, using winRAR I am able to extract the files but when I try to install I get the following:

This is then followed by the message: "There are no products affected by this package installed on this system".

I've looked online for a starter version of Office 07 (or something like that) to no avail. I've also attempted to "burn" the iso to a usb stick and install it that way but again with no success.

I'd be grateful for some help as I have no idea of where to go from here.

Welcome to the forum,

What you are trying to install is just the service pack, that's why you are getting that message.

A:Issues installing Windows 10 on new hard drive

Just as the computer reboots the first time during install, pull the flash drive out.

The problem is that your bios is set to boot from USB flash drive permanently as the first device. Bios needs to be set to boot from the hard drive first as priority - and then you manually tell it to boot from the flash drive when you want it to. The workaround to changing your bios settings is to pull the flash drive out just as the computer reboots the first time when installing Windows 10.

If you happen to miss it - when the computer reboots into the first install screen again, just remove the flash drive and restart the computer.

I downloaded Windows 10 Anniversary Edition on my HP Notebook 15 a couple days ago.  This version came as an update, and it was not clear to me until it was complete. This laptop is new for me, purchased in June this year.  Since the update, the sound quality has been poor; very scratchy and white noise in background. Not sure what to do to fix this.  Anyone else?

I am trying to get my Windows 7 system to install updates, but the Windows Update screen keeps saying "Checking for updates". Basically, its taking it forever to install updates. Also, Internet Explorer does not work right. Internet Explorer keeps freezing up. I am trying to upgrade it to Windows 10 for my brother.

Someone's help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Issues installing Windows XP on my hp pavilion dv6700 notebook

That's because XP does not have the SATA drivers for the Hard Drive .. so it doesn't see it.
If you know the Driver .. it can be slipsteamed into the XP install CD.
Even if you can do this, you'll probably have trouble finding the other drivers that are missing.

Have you though about getting the recovery DVDs from HP ??
You should have recovered from the recovery partition .. it was safe.

A:GPT Hard drive issues with installing Windows 7 Ultimate..

Hello DrWolfenstein, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since this is a new PC and formatted as GPT, then you have a UEFI motherboard.

If you have not already, then I would recommend creating a factory recovery USB to be able to restore Windows 8 back to factory conditions on your PC if you should ever want to in the future.Create a Packard Bell Factory Default Backup in Windows 8
Next, double check to make sure that there are Windows 7 drivers available for all devices on the PC. There's no sense in installing Windows 7 if you don't have drivers for the PC.

To install Windows 7 on UEFI, you would first need to create a bootable Windows 7 UEFI USB flash drive using the tutorial below.UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows
Next, the tutorial below will show you how to install Window 7 on UEFI with the UEFI USB.UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with

I currently have an AL-1540CS printer that's hooked up to the USB port of my PC. I went to the official SHARP Website to search for the drivers of it and I downloaded them. The problem is whenever I try to install the drivers it says:

"The installer has detected an unsupported operating system. This software can only be installed in the following operating systems: Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista"

After it shows this message it just closes. I tried using it with compability mode, but it won't work either with any settings. I contacted SHARP, but no answer from them yet.

Any help?

A:Printer drivers not installing on Windows 7 due to compability issues.

This is SHARP's response:

"Thank you for contacting Sharp Electronics Corporation.

Currently, there is no software available for your copier that is compatible with Windows 7. We do have the software CD available for purchase, however, this will only work with Windows XP. We have no timetable on the release of any software at this time."

What the heck? Are you kidding me? I now have an unusable printer. Is there anyway I could fix this?

I have a home network with machines that are running Windows XP. I have one computer that still has Windows 98, and I seem to be having a problem getting this machine to work on the network. The Windows 98 machine recognizes the wireless network (MsHome), but I can't see any of the other computers from the Windows 98 machine. I also cannot access the internet. I run the wireless utility (NetGear WG311 wireless adapter), and it says that I am connected to the network. From the other computers on the network, I can see the Windows 98 computer, but can't access it. Any suggestions?

Had similar problem: After several Hours with 4 Windows Techs... I had a laundry list of problems including no sound, no backup, no internet, no ready boost, no security, etc... after an aborted program installation and a bad Windows shutdown.
IF POSSIBLE, CREATE A RESTORE POINT BEFORE PROCEEDING (this may not be possible if Windows Backup service is disabled). Additional information about service settings can be found at Windows 7 Service Configurations by Black Viper.
AS A SHOTGUN APPROACH: Start---execute on command line "service.msc" Or Start--All Programs Administrative Tools-- Component Services---Services (local) [maximize window] Inspect the list of component services (screens of them). Select disabled services one-by-one; reset Startup Type to "automatic" (a few won't allow this or will reset properly at reboot). You can attempt to start each service as they are activated (some are dependent on other services, view with tab of dialog) or reboot after all are activated.
I had about 3/4 of the services disabled. Took about 3/4 hour to reactivate. Results were pleasing to the eye and effort!

How can I get Windows to recognize my drives in UEFI if even possible at all?

Hi, I recently clean upgraded my Xp to Windows 7. I did a clean sintall and am slowly installing everything from scratch.

When I downloaded AVG free, it wouldn't configure the files, it just stalled.

I went with Avira, who have never failed me in the past and it installed and downloaded files without any hassles, lucky.

Since then I've downloaded the latest patch for my evga gtx 285 and the driver just stall when it says "installing files". I downloaded the 64bit patch.

The same thing has happened when I downloaded iTunes 64bit. The thing just stalls when it looks as though ti's completing installation.

Any ideas? Thanks

I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium on a 64 bit HP Laptop with 4GB RAM. I'm networked with several other computers. When I try to get to the desktop on my Windows 7 machine from Vista, the Network displays the Windows 7 desktop for an instant and then reverts to the Windows Vista desktop. The problem is new. I've done virus and malware scans.

The procedure I'm using:
I double-click the Network icon on the Vista desktop. In the window that opens I click on my windows 7 icon, enter the appropriate login and password. I then see my Windows 7 shared folders and I click the shared desktop icon to open the Windows 7 desktop in order to transfer files, etc. The Windows 7 desktop opens for an instant and then all the open windows disappear and the Vista desktop reopens.

This problem just started occurring. Any ideas on what's causing the problem and how to fix it?

I recently had DSL installed in my office. I have two other computers (W2K and W98) networked just fine to the DSL router. When I try to 'network' the WNT system, I am just lost.

All I want is for the DSL to work on the WNT system. The modem/router shows a 'green light' on the 'Ethernet Network' for that particular computer, so I know that the modem/router knows that the cord is at least hooked up.

The ISP for the WNT computer is Worldnet/ATT who said that they couldn't help me with networking issues, which I don't believe this is but I could just be retarded.

Please Please Please - any help would be so appreciated!!!

A:WNT issues - networking?

Hi There!

Perhaps this thread might be better suited for the Networking forum.

Did you check your IP Configuration? If the NT machine isn't getting a correct IP address, then that would cause your troubles.

Also, try swapping cable ports on your DSL router and see if there may be a bad port.

Good Luck!

When I performed my first install, I did not have a network cable connected to the machine. Once the install completed (which seemed to take forever), I was unable to connect my network. I tried turning the firewall off, and making other adjustments. When I ran ipconfig /all, no adapters showed even though it was showing with the Network Connections.

After I while, I ended up reinstalling the machine with the network cable and was able to connect to my network.

Alright, I am currently connected through my Apartment Complex's internet and everything was running smoothly when today a window appeared upon log-in that asked me to "Choose a Network" So I chose public, as what is suggested by my Apartment. Well now, in my Ctrl+Alt+Del menu under Networking my Apartment's internet is running at 0.00% and will not move, while the new "public network" is cruising at 70-90%. Normal internet browsing runs fine, no lag whatsoever, but the second I try to play any online video game my latency goes through the roof (up to 550k ms before disconnect). When I try to turn off the public network and simply rely on my apt. internet I have 0 connection anywhere. Is there anything else I can try that will fix my problem?

A:Networking issues

use PUBLIC only when you are at a hotspot.

delete that connection and recreate it and chose PRIVATE instead.

Now go to the Firewall, and DISABLE file/print sharing (only because it is a large complex of untrusted users). Normally, you would enable this if it was your own router and your own systems.

Your gaming may be an issue as frequently games require specific ports, say for steam and with this setup, enabling port forwarding for you will deny it for all others.

i am trying to setup a friends pc with a WiFi system to network her home pcs
the wifi system is Linksys wireless-G model no:- WAG54GS
i seem to be able to connect the ADSL gateway to the pc and the ADSL line in for BT broadband fine but when going through the installation it advises me that it cannot fine the internet connection but i know that the gateway box is recieving the ADSL signal..
could this be something to do with the bt connection username and password being different to the one inputted with the installation Guide?

Hi guys I am about to tell you the story that has ruined my past week Last weekend I realize the internet is still running at about speed it should It was doing this for the Serious Issues Networking past week starting last saturday at least from what I could tell I called the ISP Atlantic Broadband The guy I got is clueless and wouldn t help me He won Serious Networking Issues t help at all the advice he gives is confusing and doesn t make any sense whatsoever Well anyway he tells me to connect my computer to the modem without my wireless router THAT i could understand I had already done that anyway So i do and I got the same speed HOWEVER to make matters worse I start getting popups in the task bar from Windows Media Library saying that people are trying to share files from me ONLY without the router ONLY when I m hardwired to the modem Some of the computers devices that it listed about - trying to connect include tina-pc bob-pc quot other names quot -pc about or so of quot Xbox quot MSN home or something like that Those are just to name a few So now I figure someone is sending me a DoS which is causing the slowdown Of course my ISP being the people they are cannot help They said that quot on their end quot i looked perfect they said there was no problems So then trying to at least regain wireless I plug in the router Its a no go it doesn t obtain an IP or DNS etc Then im about to go crazy I cooled down by doing some homework After completing some I decided to try it again Luckily this time the router worked Now and what im using now the wireless works It is still utterly slow BUT when im on the router firewalled remember I dont get the people trying to connect This leads me to the following conclusions It is nothing on my computers since hardwired computers one laptop that hasn t been turned on in months up until one day last week both experienced slow connections and got the people trying to connect to me This has been happening for a while now Possibly at the most week I really experienced this however a few days ago I decided to call the same day I really noticed it I possibly think its one of the following - ISP is screwing with me and getting some of their users connecting to me or something similar - a hacker or someone is sending me a DoS highly unlikely but possible I guess What I already did - Got a new modem from the ISP brand new Motorola - Reformatted a computer that could have possibly been infected with spyware Doesn t help The pics attached are as follows the first one shows how people try to connect to me The second shows that I have the sharing off and the quot help quot file says that people need to connect to your network to share files When I took those shots the router was UNPLUGGED and I was ONLY hardwired directly to the modem No wireless at all was on on the laptop and as I said before the router was disfunctional The last two show my terrible speeds I should be getting close to kbps down Any help would be appreciated Btw I have called the ISP times since this started all unable to solve my problem A technician from their department came just days ago saturday and tightened a few wires Of course coincidentally when he came the internet was working OK Later that night I got speeds like this nbsp

I have a small LAN that began giving me problems. The LAN worked fine until a couple of days ago and started have connectivity problems. The LAN environment has not changed between its working state and these problems.

The LAN has a W2K and a W95 machine connected using NetBEUI. W2K is shared so that the W95USER has access to a drive. W95 is shared so that all users have access to all drives without a password. W95USER continues to access W2K without a problem...

W2K is having a problem accessing W95. W2K can access some of the drives and not others. W2K can access some of the folders on the accessed drive but not other folders. W2K can access some of the subdirectories of some of the accessed folders but not other subdirectories....

Any thoughts??????

Hey, i'm not very technical when it comes to networkng, so i came across this forum and decided to ask for some help.

Basically in my house are two PC's running windows XP, they both connect to a netgear wired router. However, recently on the computer i use, no longer has a connection being shared to it. I am unsure on how to set up a new connection to the router, however have tried and everytime it has been unsuccessful.

If anyone has any troubleshooters or ideas to this. Please help me, much appreciated, thanks.

p.s. The admin pc in the other rooms' connection is still currently working.

A:Networking issues

Are you saying that the machine no longer has an Internet connection, or that you can't access shared files or folders? They are different problems.

If the former, the first thing to check is continuity: Is the ethernet cable securely plugged in at both ends, and do you get a link light on the router for the port the machine is connected to?

After continuity, does Windows report any network connectivity issues like "Limited or no connectivity" ? That message indicates it didn't get an IP address via DHCP.

Do you have any firewall software running on the machine? If so, try disabling it. Norton IS is particularly fond of disabling Internet access for no reason.

What browser are you using? Have you checked "Work Offline" ?

Et cetera.

Hello all I m having some networking with XP issues A friend of mine has a small office network of computers They are all networked with a small D-link router that connects all PC s and a huge Lanier All in One Printer is also connected via ethernet These Pc s are also all sharing this printer and a certain folder on the main Issues! with Networking Help! Please XP computer that they use files from and make Networking with XP Issues! Please Help! changes to Networking with XP Issues! Please Help! The main computer was running Windows Professional as the others were running Windows As I said before all PC s were having file print sharing capabilties What I did was UPGRADE the main PC to XP Pro and the other two PCs were just too old so I swapped them out with newer machines running XP Pro as well After the upgrade of the main machine as it rebooted it had several different usernames to choose from at the user select screen in XP I assumed these were all the users of the previous network I just selected the one that was the name of the Woman who used it Angela I immedietly ran the Network setup wizard and configured a new workgroup called quot Allied Home quot this is a loan company in case anyone cares I then made sure the Lanier printer still worked and suprisingly I didn t have to install the XP drivers to make it work The printer worked fine I then went to the other PCs that had fresh copies of Xp installed and ran the network wizard on both of those So now I ve got my workgroup called quot Allied Home quot configured to where when you click on it you see all PC s on the network Heres the problem When I try to map the other computers to the data folder in which they all need to share it asks for a username and password to enter the main computer Why is this My friend assures me whoever set this up previously never password protected anything She has no idea what the username or password could be I have tried the same username that logs in and it just says invalid every time I ve tried directly connecting to the main PC by clicking on the icon for it as well as typing the file path in the quot add a network place quot option angela data I m mainly a hardware based computer person and I m still learning about networking in all of the Windows software As of now the whole office is a mess because none of the PC s are working together properly without file print sharing capabilities The other problem is that when I try to set up the printer to work with the other PC s I can t seem to connect it to them I m made sure it is a shared printer on the network but for some reason it won t browse to it I didn t think the main computer having a password would matter since the printer isn t exactly connected to the main computer but to the router box Is there a different method for making a printer work on a network if it is connected through a router rather than directly to one PC on the network I just need to get everything back to the way it was while using the newly upgraded XP Any wisdom would be greatly appreciated Chris nbsp

A:Networking with XP Issues! Please Help!

First off since this is a networked printer and you don't have a "server" I would not "share" this printer from the 1 PC to the other 2. I would just do direct network connections to this printer. This eliminates the need for a PC to stay on all the time just to print.

What you should do is go to the manufacturers website download the drivers for the make/model and in the install for MOST of these types of all in one printers it asks if its networked. In there you put the IP of the printer and then it installs. Sincey ou did an upgrade to the 1 PC it probably kept all the settings from the prior install.

Secondly when you use XP Pro in a workgroup setting and you have MULTIPLE usernames when your accessing a share on ANOTHER PC that PC has to have the usernames of the people who are connecting in on the PC that they are ocnnecting into. I.E. if you have a User - Angela and she logs onto Angela on PC 1 then tries to connect to PC 2 then PC 2 has to have a local user account with the same password as PC 1 called Angela.

Also make sure to check your firewalls this is a major problem that can block interconnection of PC's inside a LAN.

Alright, from the top...I've got 2 computers, both running XP, both running thru a Linksys Ethernet Adapters. Both wired with CAT5e. Anyway, I can't seem to connect them or access the folders on the eachothers systems. They both go to the hub and one computer(computer-1) has a printer on it. Now, in the network connections window, computer-1 has a connection labeled Local Area Connection 2, while computer-2 has a connection labeled Local Area Connection. I'm assuming that these connections should be the same. Also I know that the files/folders on the respective computers should be selected as shared and whatnot. And altho I "shared" them, I could not access them. I tried in the Network Places window to add a network place, and when I opened their workgroup labeled "workgroup", I got an error that said it could not find the folders on the network. please help me out....

A:Networking Issues

Both PCs must be in a workgroup with the SAME name on each PC.
Then you go to where you manage accounts (in W2K Start/Settings/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Local Users and Groups).
Click Users and enter the name and data of the OTHER PC's User.
Click Groups and give the wanted access in one of those groups to this user.
Once done you must give access-permission on the Disk or folder/folders that the other person can use. Rightclick on that HD resp. folder and select Sharing, then select Read/Write or All for that user.

You must do this also on the other PC for the fist user.
Have fun.

Acer Travelmate 290LMi laptop
Windows XP Pro service pack 1
Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG
Realtek RTL8139 ethernet


I installed XP service pack 2 and my networking stopped working. Neither wireless or ethernet could acquire an IP address. Another laptop in the house was still working so it wasn't a router/network issue. When I try to ping anything (host or IP) I get error 65.

I tried reinstalling the wireless and lan drivers from but it didn't do any good.

In the end I uninstalled Service Pack 2 and then networking worked again.

Has anyone else seen this problem? Any ideas how to solve it so I can install sp2?

I've just found - I did have ZoneAlarm but I uninstalled it after I installed sp2.


A:Networking lost after installing XP service pack 2

that article is specifically related to ICS (internet connection sharing), which is windows based, not through the router.

After installing SP2 you will need to check some things. Firstly, that your NIC is installed and working properly (through the device manager). Second, you will need to configure/disable the windows firewall, which I believe activates itself after installing SP2.

You could also try assigning it a static IP address instead of letting it auto-assign itself one.

Hello all,
ok so here's my problem, up until yesterday all was well....but now my admin/base computer which connects via the LAN is not connecting to the internet, or at least it is showing up as connected (computers at bottom right of screen) but when you try to use firefox etc... nothing works. the computers that connect to the internet via the wireless connection however are having zero problems and are fully working.. Also, the admin/base computer has no problems connecting to the LAN network.
i'm using a netgear dg834gv2 wireless router with xp sp2. i've tried numerous times now to try and set up the router but to no avail. i've tried re setting, factory re-setting. i'm not sure how to fix this at all?!? could it be a possibility that there is an incorrect i.p somewhere in the settings?

any help apprieciated,

A:Internet networking issues (LAN)

use run->cmd /k ipconfig /all to see the network configuration
you should have ip-addresses like aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd everywhere and specifically,
none of them should be blank, or start with 169.*.*.*

verify that where the ethernet cable plugs into your system, you have green lights showing.

go to your device manager and verify that the driver for the NIC has no yellow or red marks.

you should be able to UNINSTALL the driver, reboot, and now INSTALL a driver.
