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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Everyone,

I am attempting to setup an Ad Hoc Wireless Network between two Windows 7 computers. On my Desktop Computer I have created the actual network as per the screen shots below -



The end result is an Ad Hoc network available through my Desktop Computer -

However even though the network is seen as available from the laptop, when a connection is attempted there is an error -

A few additional points -
I have tried dhcp & manually setting the I.P. address on both computers (with the same result)
Both computers belong to the same Workgroup
Both have file sharing enabled
Both have Network Discovery enabled
I chose no security to rule out encryption

If anybody has any idea of what I am missing here can you please share?

Kind Regards

Davo

What I am about to not computers workgroup off... Wireless or connecting dropping Network: occasionally describe does not happen all the time and rarely happened until I added a rd machine to the network Three computers on network - call them A B and C A is connected to router by cable B and C by wireless cards both DLink just like the router Router is DI dynamic IP and DHCP I share files directories betweeen all three machines I have experience in doing this Sometimes when I turn all three machines on one or more Wireless Network: workgroup computers occasionally not connecting or dropping off... of the three machines is unaccessible to the others vis a vis shared files directories Wireless Network: workgroup computers occasionally not connecting or dropping off... For example from A looking at C from My Network Places C s resources are quot Wireless Network: workgroup computers occasionally not connecting or dropping off... unknown quot Sometime C can t see B s resources Once they hook up though the almost always stay hooked up Nevertheless getting into the Internet is never a problem - only the file sharing This is ALWAYS fixable by one of the four following ways a reboot the offending computer b disable and encable the offending computer s network connection c the most fun - If A and C can t see B s resources go to B go to My Network Places and let B find the resources of the other two and d start MSWord on one machine and try to open a Word file on the offending machine s shared folder Eventually I always get in and share the resources I have disabled the Windows firewall because I have ZoneAlarm installed on all three machines On all three the network loopback adapter are in trusted zone I have also defined an IP range to which is also trusted The syndrome above seemed to have been worse with dropping even after an initial successful connection before I went into the Windows Firewall advanced tab and unchecked all of the Network Connection Settings boxes although this might be my imagination since Windows Firewall was disabled in the first place I have tried to delete the shared resources and define a new workgroup add network places etc Does not completely solve the problem I have done some checking on this message board before posting Sorry for the length of this but I am quite perplexed especially since the machines CAN share resources ultimately nbsp

A:Wireless Network: workgroup computers occasionally not connecting or dropping off...

If you always have all three PCs on your network, the problem may or may not be as follows.

If you sometimes just have one PC on, sometimes 2, sometimes a different pair, and sometimes all three, your "problem" is a "feature" of the Computer Browser service.

My simplified explanation: My Network Places is designed to be a convenience for stable workgroups. When you visit it, it shows what it remembers from the last time. With a stable workgroup, this is fast and great. But beware if you add or subtract PCs or even add or remove shared folders or their contents. What is shown in My Network Places is dependent on the Computer Browser service, which polls the network and gets an updated list of resources across the network. It is sorta like a cat--it does exactly what you tell it to do. Eventually. When it feels like it. This is why you often "see" computers that are not on and folders that were deleted and fail to see recently joined computers or folders.

For a technical explanation see http://www.comptechdoc.org/os/windows/ntwsguide/ntwsnfinding.html

I'm having issues connecting to a secure wireless network. Network key is definitely correct. I'm running Windows XP...and using a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card. Things are set to acquire address automatically. When I try to connect though, I get stuck on "acquiring network address"

I've never had issues connecting to any other wireless network before, and am fairly confident this is not a hardware issue.

I'm really not technical...so I don't even know where to start wrt troubleshooting...or what other info to provide here.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

I got my comcast internet connection this morning; I setup my wireless connection and its connecting fine with my office computer. Unfortunately personal computer (HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC in which Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit SP2 is installed) is not able to connect with the router. I even tried connecting my modem directly - NO Luck. It was connecting for couple of minutes and getting disconnected.

Both my office computer and my iPod are connecting fine with the wireless network but my personal computer is showing Connected (local access only) icon in the system tray. When I mouse over, its showing "Unidentified Network (<network name>"
Is there any way to resolve it?

Thanks in advance

I'm staying with my parents for a couple of weeks so want to connect my laptop to their wireless network. I have an ACER aspire 6930z laptop which uses Vista - I connect this at my house to my network with no problems (bebox). Here, my parents are on virgin broadband and have a belkin wireless G plus mimo router. They have other laptops connected to this network, again without a problem.

I can see the wireless network on my laptop and have entered what I believe to be the correct WEP key on my laptop to access the network. When I connect it is connected with limited connectivity (although the signal strength is excellent), Diagnostics says 'there might be a problem with one or more network adaptors on this computer'.

Would anyone be able to help advice me on what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks

I am looking to connect a laptop running vista to a network printer. The printer is connected to my desktop running XP. My laptop with xp has no problem printing to it. I cant seem to get the vista laptop to work. When i attempt to add the printer to the vista laptop..it seems to identify it, but it's connection is denied. Is this a firewall issue? Is this a driver issue?

I also can't seem to connect this vista laptop to the network for file sharing etc. Maybe the same issue.

Hi,

I want to connect two computers together with a wired RJ45 network cable so that one of the computers can share the other computers' internet.

On the motherboard of the computer which has the internet, there is an:

'SiS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter'

Is this a built in network card into the motherboard, so I don't need to buy a network card for this computer?

After I have connected both computers with the cable, what happens then? What do I need to configure to get both computers working with each other?

Thanks a lot or your help.

It sounds like you need to from a Public network to a private or Home network before the Homegroup can be created. The following link will help you do that.

Most other Homegroup problem can be fixed by going through the Homegroup trouble shooter in the following link.

before i could not access my vista computer upstairs from my xp computer downstairs.

i've made sure the settings are what they should be on the vista computer since i can easily access my xp computer from the vista computer.

now the problem has gotten worse by that i can't access my xp computer from the vista computer or vice versa so now i can't transfer files from each computer. i need to use my external drive or a flash drive.

I have a dlink wireless router with a Dell M1530 laptop and a XPS 420 desktop. After a lot of help from Dell, I set up the home network which was working fine. I even set up some network drives to look at and transfer files between machines. Now, the network seems to act strangely. Most of the time, the other machines mapped drives show up with the red X and can't get connected. The network connections don't show the other machine but an IP scanner will sometimes see them. I even used the IP scanner program to transfer files between machines even though they supposedly were not connected.

After the trouble I had getting the network set up, I hate to try to set it up again. The internet access to both machines works fine. I have all hard drives set to share. I use WEP security.

I already did some basic trouble shooting like reseting the server and turning their wireless adapter on and off but still didnt work.

2 Laptops, both with XP Pro. Using Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router wrt54gx2. Both computers can now connect to the internet okay. But they cannot communicate with each other. I ran "Set up hom e or small office network" wizard on both; said they connected to the internet through residential gateway. Rebooted; still cannot see each other. Under Network connections, each can see its own shared folder but nothing else. Both computers are on the same workgroup.

I recently moved and my desktop computer is now in a room in the attic, ufortunatly it had no wireless on it so i went out and bought a wireless pci card so i could connect to my internet. Installed the hard ware and the software that came with it. When i run the included software it is showking that it is connected, showing ip address, the right connection name and all the relavent info seems to be there.

But when i try to open a we b page it says i have no internet connection? when i look at xp's connection status it says it is unable to show me connection as another piece of software is controlling the connection.

The card i bought was a sumvision wireless pci adapter svw322p running on a xp computer

hope you can help thank you
 

A:Connecting to wireless network

it may be using a wireless utility you installed and conflicting with the XP wireless utility WZC
do you know the name of the utility you installed - it would be worth stopping this process and allowing windows zero configuration WZC to control the adapter
lets see an xirrus screen shot and a ipconfig /all

also do you have a firewall or security suite - now or old version maybe a trial version of norton or mcafee etc
------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

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

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

I have two wireless networks using two different routers. I can connect easily to both networks from five of my other computers, some that use XP, one with Vista and one with Windows 7. I have another AIO computer using Windows 7 that will only connect to one of the networks although both the networks appear on the list of available networks and the signal strength indicates excellent on the network that won't connect. I disconnect the network that I can access, try to connect to the other but I get the advice that the computer cannot connect. I have typed in the correct codes, do everything as on other computers but it just won't connect on this one. After a few seconds the computer automatically connects to the previous network. Any ideas?

A:Connecting to a second wireless network

If you are using WEP on that second router you will most likely need to go with WPA2 security with AES encryption instead. You will need to change the wireless profile in Windows 7 as well.

There are many new Windows 7 approved drivers that will not work with the outdated and less secure WEP security.

Did you installed the wireless adapter driver and software to your pc?
If you are having troubles to determine the model of the adapter use everest (free)
Download Everest Home Edition 2.20 Free - Everest Home Edition - a freeware system information, system diagnostics and benchmarking solution - Softpedia

I assume you already did that, make sure you download the software as well (some adapters are only works with their dedicated software.)

Is there any conflicts in Device manager?
Make sure the adapter is enabled in setup (BIOS) (if its integrated)

A:Connecting to wireless network

In the desktop computers that are already connected to the wireless, do the following:

1) Click on the wireless icon in the notification area (system tray), it'll show the names of all the wireless connections detected. Your home connection (to which you are connected) will be in bold with the status "Connected". That'll give you the name of the network.

2) To locate your key, just right click on the connection (that you saw in 1), click on Properties, then click on Security tab. Check the box "Show characters" to reveal the network security key.

I have connected my wireless network like this:

Cable modem-> computer-> wireless router -> 2 more computers.

I have the computer with internet connected into a lan port on the router and used the network wizard on Windows XP after giving my router and the other computers on the network static IP's since the internet connection wanted the IP my router was originally on.

After days I have gotten as far as seing the internet gateway connected on my other computers and my wireless network connected but i can't open internet explorer on these computers.

Im doing the network this way because i have no choice. The Ethernet on my cable modem is broken and the modem is out of warranty. Getting a replacement from my ISP is like pulling teeth and theoretically this should work....

Could someone please tell me something else that maybe I should check? (before going mad, that is)

What you are describing is windows Internet connection sharing. I've used it before and it is extremely difficult to get working and extremely unreliable. I had to keep resetting my modem about every hour or so to stop the whole setup from locking up.

You really would be far far better off getting your modem fixed and doing it the proper way.

A:On my wireless network, all my computers have internet access except for one.

Well, I've experienced something similar, but to fix it you'll have to do some things that aren't too hard...

Try going on to you're router's web based configuration page and change the IP (I'm guessing that the default is 192.168.0.1) to 192.168.0.2

That might not work, and knowing me, I wouldn't bet on it, so, maybe you should try changing channels on your router to avoid any interference. Try changing it to 11, that helped me in other areas I can remember.

Have you gone on the PC and checked the wireless on there? It says its connected you say, so in the task bar should be a little icon meaning Wireless is detected (And hopefully connected)

Try right clicking that, and going to Status, then Properties. There should be a new window that comes up, with a list of things with check boxes. Scroll there, and find something called "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". Once there, make sure that "Obtain IP Address Automatically" and "Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically" are checked.

I don't know what else to tell you if that doesn't work, other than upgrading firmware of your router, which is fairly easy.

Best of luck.

if it's connected to the same router that supports the WiFi, then this is normal.

To your question re active wireless leading to a freeze; YES.
get the make/model/version numbers for your Linksys (likely WRT54G)
as well as the same info for your wireless adaptors in all systems.

1) get the lates firmware for the router and update it
2) do likewise for each system.

also make sure you are current with Microsoft Updates for all systems.

if you are trying to get on the internet

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

This should also work for windows 8
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

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

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

A:Solved: Two wireless routers cant see computers on network

Here's the recipe for connecting two routers to accomplish what you are trying to do.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

A:Connecting a printer to a wireless network

On each pC
- go to your network properties and make sure that you have "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" installed under the General tab
- set the workgroup to the same value (e.g. mygroup), and make sure each pc has a unique short name (e.g. pc1, pc2 etc.)
- (temporarily) disable any software firewalls that you are running (ZoneAlaram, Comodo, Windows Firewall etc.)

- make sure the PC with the printer attached is on and the printer is on and working and the printer has a simple share name (e.g. printer1)
- at your XP laptop go to Start->Printers and Faxes->Add New printer, choose Networked printer and then type \\pc1\printer1 (or whatever you called your pc and printer) when prompted for the name
- this shoud now install the printer (note that the full drivers do not need to be installed on each PC for it to be able to print)

If the above works then try it on the Vista PC next and finally reenable your firewall and try and configure it to allow printing.

Could anyone offer any help or advice to connect my partner's laptop to my wireless network?

The router is a Sagem provided by my ISP (Sky). The wireless connection works fine on my MacBook, and various other devices connect no problem with the security key.

However, his laptop (Windows Vista) will not connect wirelessly. After entering the password, it says it can't connect because it 'times out' (we are obviously entering the password immediately with no delay). It connects fine with an ethernet cable. It will also connect to an unsecured wireless network we can pick up.

The security setup is WPA-PSK with TKIP encryption, and we've made sure he is using these settings.

If it might be important, he has just moved here, and previously his laptop was connected to another Sky router with no problems.

Any help would be welcome - many thanks.
 

A:Connecting second laptop to wireless network

Make sure he has the latest wireless driver. If the adapter is integrated it should be from the laptop manufacturer's web site.

Make sure you are not locking him out with MAC Address Filtering on the router.

Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. Assuming success re-enable encryption and try to connect.

i'm making this post only to help others that may run into the problem hopefully google will pick this up too i have experienced a problem only connecting network wireless for slow FIX to in vista my wireless network would work perfect then i'd make a change to it like its wireless security settings and then it would not connect at all or a lot slower than it used to even after rebooting it would take a while to connect with all the settings correct i've also noticed windows XP does not have this problem at all eventually i found a solution to this problem if you're going to make a change to your wireless connection first delete your wireless network adapter in device manager reboot and windows should reinstall your wireless adapter be sure to have your drivers ready in case you're not using a windows driver also make sure you saved any network settings that you will need to re-enter i have done this twice now and it always makes my wireless connection start up right away i FIX for slow connecting to wireless network think deleting the adapter completely wipes out the old wireless settings FIX for slow connecting to wireless network that might confuse vista and FIX for slow connecting to wireless network make it slow to connect

Using a Diamond 300 mbps Wireless Repeater
Netgear Wireless Dualband Router N600 WNDR3400v2

When attempting to open IE, a popup opens that says:
Connect to 10.0.10.254
The server 10.0.10.254 at GoAhead requires a username and password.
Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection).

In device manager, computer doesn't recognize a wireless device.
It displays NVIDIA nForce 10/100 mbps Ethernet but nothing else.

Other devices (laptop,Ipad) can connect to the wireless in the home.
Internet provider says it is not on their end.

Can someone please offer some advice on how to resolve this issue.

Thank you

Go to Device Manager, find the wireless adaptor. It should have a yellow ! symbol next to it.

Post details here, then you need to install the drivers for it.

Hi have installed Windows 8 on my MacBook Pro Retina Display 15" via Bootcamp.

Everything works perfectly, except for when I try to connect to a new wireless network. it just hangs on trying to connect and I cant even hit CANCEL.

However if I create the network profile and reboot my machine it connects to the wireless network via the profile with no dramas.

but as soon as I want to connect to a new wireless network it just hangs. I cant cancel out.

anyone seen this before? can you help pls?

My HP Mini netbook shows the wireless network that I have here at home, but even after putting in the password, it does not connect to the wireless network. It says "Acquiring Network address" but never connects. My other laptop (a Sony Vaio) and my dvd blue-ray player connect just fine to the wireless network and only this netbook doesn't. I have no clue how to get it to connect. Here is the information from the IPCONFIG /ALL:

Windows IP Configuration
Host Name ........................... : your-6c359a3bdc
Primary Dns Suffic ................ :
Node Type ........................... : Broadcast
IP Routing Enabled................ : No
WINS Proxy Enabled ............ : No

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:
Media State ......................... : Media disconnected
Description .......................... : 802.11n Wireless LAN Card
Physical Address ................. : 00-1B-41-F2-44

Thanks in advance for any help that is provided.
 

A:Hp Mini not connecting to wireless network

Were you ever able to connect this PC to that particular wireless network? If so ...

Try with the router's encryption disabled. Assuming success you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

Hi everyone, I recently had to format my hard drive and reinstall vista onto my laptop. Since then, I haven't been able to connect to either my home router, or more recently (since I moved to my Dad's) to his router. Every time I try and connect it says "Wireless association failed due to an unknown reason." My only options are "Try connecting to Livebox-3268 again", which results in a repeat of the original message after an attempt at repairing, or to "View available wireless networks", of which there aren't any.

Any help with this situation would be much appreciated, I can post any details of my laptop and router on request, although I am a bit of a beginner with computers so you may have to bear with me if I need a few extra steps to clarify how to do something.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Problem connecting to my wireless network

Open Device Manager and see if there are any red x's or yellow flags next to your network adapter. Next, open a command prompt and type the following without the quotes and paste all the results back here, "ipconfig /all". Also check, open IE, click Tools, Internet Options, Connection Tab and then the LAN Tab and in the window that opens make sure that all the check boxes are clear, if not clear them and close IE and re-open IE.

I have a Netgear router, a Dell PC, and a MacBook Pro laptop. Everything was working fine until I tried to connect to my wireless network on my Mac today. I put in my network password on the Mac and it says it is invalid. I have not changed any settings on my PC.

I'd like to see if there's a way to wirelessly connect my new smart HDTV to my computer so that I can use the TV as another computer monitor while my computer is in another room of my home through the wireless network). I'm not sure if this is even possible. Thank you.

Intel WiDi will let you do that. You will have to invest in some hardware though.

I have recently purchased an Xbox which has a Wifi connection built into it. I can access internet and download via Xbox live. The strngth of the connection to the router seems pretty good

I have also tried to set up Media Centre and have one through the relevant instructions and can successfully connect to my PC to view photos, video etc, however the connection is very poor according to the XBOX and sometimes drops off.

My Set up is a PC with a Thomson V585 v7 wireless router connected via ethernet with one additional PC connecting wirelessly and an XBOX

I dont quite understand how the broadband can have a strong connection whilst the network is weak?

Are there any settings checks I can perform to improve this

A:Connecting XBOX to Wireless Network

Is your computer hardwired to the router or wireless? Are they both in the same room, or close to the router? Sometimes, distance playes a huge role, and so does how many barriers the signal has to travel through.

Let us know,
