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.)
I have a PC which was upgraded from Windows 8.1 (no, clean install is not an option on this machine)
So the problem is that any changes I make in the Advanced Sharing Settings in Network and Sharing Centre are getting changed but their effects are not taking place.
For example I disabled sharing of the "Users" folder, that didn't work, it still shows up.
I disabled Password Protected Sharing, that didn't work, I need to put a password each time.
I'm havin' a prob... I just got a new Sony FW373J and this is what happens when I try and see my network...
Any help would be much appreciated and I thank whoever in advance.

In fact, the hang issue is very hard to troubleshoot. To narrow down the issue, You could try to stop two services for a test. One is Network Location Awareness, the other one is Network List. This will tell us whether you have drive compatibility issue
with the two service. This is just my assumption. Juke Chou

Running Windows 7 Home Premium, I've experienced this issue about five times in the span of two weeks.
When my wireless connection isn't found, sometimes Windows is unresponsive when clicking on the wireless icon near my system clock. It shows either the empty bars with a yellow indicator or the empty bars with a red x. When I try to click and bring up the list of available networks, nothing happens. Even right-clicking doesn't do anything.
Explorer has given an error and needed to shut down three of the five times this error has happened.
Any idea what could be causing this to happen?

hi and welcome
there are several things.
first if y ou are NOT using homegroup, you can disable IPv6. it is located in network and sharing.
Second next time it happens type cmd in search>type Ipconfig /flushdns, then ipconfig /renew. let us know if that helps
type device manager in search> go to the wifi tab. look for your wifi card, is it listed? does it have a yellow triangle on it? are there any other "unknown devices" with yellow on them?
Let us know the results
I go into sharing center, advanced,etc then I turn on network discovery, click save changes, and I go right back in, and it didn't save? Any ideas what could cause this or how to fix it?

Hello. I'm trying to get my DSi online and the help from Nintendo instructs me to "If the router is not listed on our pages, or has no suggested basic rate and transmission rate changes, log into the router, and check likely areas for the basic rate and transmission rate. (e.g., "Wireless Settings," "Advanced Wireless Settings," "Connection Rates") Change the basic rate to "1-2." Change the transmission rate to "2." (Make the change even if only one of those options is available). Test the connection."
But after going on the router page (192.168 etc.) there is no option to change neither the basic or transmission rates.
I have a Belkin N1 Router (Model no. F5D8231-4 Version 5000uk)
Try changing it to 802.11g only or perhaps even 802.11b only and see if that helps.
This is my first post here or anywhere relating to my computer problems. I am going into Computer>manage>device manager>network adapters>my adapter>rightclick>properties>advanced and I am trying to change the "property" from "802.11d" to "wireless mode" (under value next to "wireless mode" it says IEE 802.11b/g/n) which i believe my BT internet supports, but when I click on it and press OK, I go and check what it is again and it has reverted back to the original 802.11d. I have tried this with a different network adapter so it is not due to the adapter Id think! The other network adapter has different settings under "property" with Network type (with value infrastructure or ad-hoc) and wireless mode. Any help appreciated, let me know if you need more information I will give it immediately!
I don't get it..
It's nothing to do with administrator access or not..
every time I go into network connections and do ALT choose Advanced and then try to press Advanced settings I get this:
"Advanced settings could not be displayed at this time because 6to4svc.dll is accessing the same information please close the 6to4svc.dll window(s) and try again"
What am I to do?
Can't anyone help me out?
is this a virus?
How would I be able to get raid of it?

Hi. I set up wireless lan broadcasting on my xp laptop; laptop cabled to router, smartphone wifi'd to laptop. I got it to work fine but now, even after undoing all the steps i went through to set up connection sharing, i can't get my laptop to connect to a wifi signal; i've tried three. LAN works fine but if i try wireless it will see the signal and try to connect but then give me an error "..unable to connect. wireless network may no longer be in range" I'm standing right next to it and my phone is connected to the same signal just fine. Is there any way to just reset all wireless settings to default? I tried cmd- netsh winsock reset (possibly different wording) and the command was successful but nothing useful happened after restart. If anyone can help that would be awesome.
Hello and Welcome to TSF!
Disable any Firewall/Security Software for now.
Try removing all wireless profiles stored in your computer and re-connect to your home wireless network, make sure that you have the correct encryption needed if your wireless is secured. Here's the guide.
If above suggestion didn't work can you pls. provide an ipconfig /all info of your computer? Here's the guide:
Click on Start => run and type cmd and press enter. From the command prompt screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen choose Select All and Paste the results here.
My Network Sharing Centre ...change adapter settings shows Unknown,clicking change settings shows the page to be empty.The dependency service or group failed to start.I do have an internet connection but my tray icon has a Red Cross..no internet connection.I would like to do a reinstall in the hope all the missing files and dependencies will be found as the last time I tried a reinstall I had no internet for some time and I don't want to repeat that
As I posted in one of your other threads. Best option for you is to do a fresh install with all the problems you are having. No pint chasing them one by one.

Do you have this option, WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)
If so use your own Key or Just retype the one that your using. Should be just as good as the others.

As stated above both Office Network and WIG can share Internet connection with no problem, but at the same time WIG can also shared the resource of Office Network (which in this case I do not wanted)
Please any advice...
Your wireless router may have some options to limit the access of wireless clients. Take a look in the firewall and/or security settings.
If you don't have anything like this in your router config, then the best solution would be to put another (wired) router (or any other computer acting as a firewall) between the wireless router and the office network. It would look like this:

I have a wireless network at home, with a wireless router upstairs that has 4 RJ45 connections at the back. I am interested in buying a 1TB external hard drive, and I would like to be able to share access to this with a PC and 2 laptops that are connected to the wireless network. Can anyone please advise me how to do this? Do I need to buy a specific hard drive with a network port?
Ideally I'd not like to rely on having the drive plugged into a PC or laptop that is always switched on - it's not good for the environment is it

This is stolen from Bob -
Do the steps he always outlines -
1. Make sure you have the same IP scheme (e.g. 192.168.0.x).
2. Make sure you have the same Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS IP addresses.
3. Make sure you can ping the other computer's IP address. If this fails, just for testing, make sure you turn off XP's as well as any other firewall.
4. Make sure you can ping the other computers by name.
5. Make sure you have the same workgroup name (watch for trailing spaces)
6. For troubleshooting purposes, turn off XP's and any other firewall software. You can always add more complexity after you get it working.
7. With XP, make sure you have the same username and password as the person logging onto the other computers. The default setting for XP Pro is to require a password for network access.
8. More details about how to network XP can be found at:
9. More details about how to troubleshoot TCP/IP networks can be found at:

Another newbie question, please...
I've set up a wireless network for 2 XP and 1 Mac machines in my home and now I'd like to share data across them.
Can someone give me a good reference to figure out how to do that?
I see the Windows "Shared Folders" but not sure how to use them.
I hope I don't have to physically move data or duplicate it to share it.
Ideally I'd like to also share data on my eSATA external hard drive across the 3 machines.
Sorry for the elementary request here, but I've always gotten great help on this board.
I know this question has been posted previously- and I have had numerous calls to Linksys- but the problem continues: I can not remote print to a computer and printer that is directly connected to a Linksys router-- I have just, finally, been able to secure my wireless network- I have clicked the Network Sharing in the Control Panel- and it indicated that I am successfully
sharing a printer- but it doesn't print! I have different names for the main PC and my laptop- don't know what to do about the Workgroup- if that is the issue- it is so frustrating! Any help is greatly appreciated.
I have a wireless network with printer sharing already in place between two computers with Windows XP that works fine. I bought a new laptop yesterday with Windows Vista installed. I got the file sharing working fine between the laptop and the two computers but the printer will not work.
There is a compatibility issue with my printer and Vista but I downloaded the Vista drivers for the printer and tried to connect on the network using the \\computername\printername format but it still will not work.
My printer is a Canon PIXMA MP160 multifunction printer.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
I have set up a WIRELESS network whereby the internet connection is shared. How do I share files and printers? I have put the same workgroup name in the 'Computer Name' tab but the compouters don't recognise each other. On one computer shows itself in the 'view workgroup computers' and the other computer shows nothing in the window. How do I get them file sharing on a wi-fi network?? How do I set up a workgroup they can both be in??
You need to have file/printer sharing enabled in your firewall on each PC
start->Control panel->Network Connections->local area connection->properties->advanced->firewall settings->exceptions->file and printer sharing. Make sure it is checked
I have a Minolta laser printer connected to a desktop via USB, The desktop is connected to a wireless hub (linksys WRT54G) which is then connected through a modem to cable internet. I have tried to print from a laptop connected through the same wireless network to the Minolta but no luck.The printer shows up as 'shared' on the desktop but not on the laptop. I have run all the printer sharing routines that Microsoft has.
Would appreciate any insight into what I should do have the printer accessible from all laptops that share the wireless hub.

I have two computers running wireless using a Linksys WRTU54G-TM. I purchased this router from T-mobile and it also provides VOIP AT Home service for my telephone. T-Mobile recently updated the Linksys software and flashed the memory. Since that time, I can no longer "see" my Work-group computers to share files. T-Mobile will not provide assistance. Both computers are running Windows 7. Any suggestions?

I recently bought an HP laptop with Vista Home Premium. I have an HP desktop running XP(sp2) and have a new HP C4280 printer attached to the desktop with USB. It works fine. I installed this printer on my new laptop, also with a USB connection so I could install the software. I am on high speed DSL connection with a wireless Westell VersaLink router/modem. I have selected the printer as default and shared on the desktop and have selected default on the laptop. When I try to print it gives me a port error(USB) I don't know how to change the settings so I can print wirelessly from my laptop.
Addendum to previous: I changed the location of the laptop port to the host ccomputer name and printer name

It's the NAT layer in the second router. Try this configuration:
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.
Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.
Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.
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!

Can anyone help? This should be pretty easy for some of you but i don't have much experience so i really need some help. Its really urgent for me to get this done asap.
I have just set up an adhoc wireless network on 2 desktops. Both running Win XP pro SP2, Belkin F5D7000 network cards, Sygate personal firewall.
The network is running fine and I am able to share files and printers OK.
What I would like to know is how do I set up the client computer to use the hosts internet connection? I am using Firefox 1.0.3 as a browser and Thunderbird for email. I have enabled share this internet connection on the host computer. The internet connection is dial up for upload and satelite for downloading. I managed to use this internet connection fine when it was a cabled network but since setting up as a wireless I can no longer access it. I have tried disabling all firewalls for testing but to no effect.
Any one have any ideas?

I am having a problem sharing files over my wireless network. I have two computers on the network. One computer can see the other computer on the network but can't access it and the other one can't even see the other computer. Obviously I'm having a problem on the one computer that can't connect to the other. The one that can connect uses wireless-g and the one that can't uses wireless-a. I am using a Linsys Wireless A + G broadband router. If there is any other information needed please let me know and thank you for the help!
Not sure if the router can do A and G at the same time. I know they use different frequencies. Try giving Linksys a call. 1-800-LINKSYS. If you call around 8pm or so, you get a better chance of talking to someone in the US.
I have a wireless network with a WRT300N Linksys Wireless router sharing internet for a wired pc and two wireless notebooks. I had no problem sharing files between these 3 computers but I can't use the printer installed in the pc from the two notebooks. I can recognize and install this printer in the notebooks, but when I try to print it doesn't work. I've already disabled the windows firewall and the others but it didn't help

Good afternoon all,
I have an HP Color Laserjet 2820 all-in-one printer/scanner/copier attached to my PC. My PC is a Dell 1545 laptop running 64-bit Windows 7. I can print and scan on the printer using the software on my computer.
My wife has a Compaq 615 laptop running 32-bit Windows 7. We share a home wireless network. She can print to the 2820 printer wirelessly, but not scan: the scan options do not appear in her driver software, when she is connected wirelessly.
If she picks up her computer, crosses the room with it, and plugs the printer USB cable into the side of her Compaq laptop, then opens the printer software, the scan options are available and she can scan direct to her PC.
Can we arrange it so that she can use the scanner functions wirelessly?

Just getting my knickers in a twist about File Sharing through a Wireless router between 2 vista computers
Is there an online resource that explains it for idiots - even a video
Does there have to be a Vista log on password for both computers - one computer has one, and the other doesn't
Create a password on each machine, the default is to inhibit file sharing with no password.
You can run control userpasswords2 from a command prompt to automate the login to the desktop if that's your reason for not having passwords.
Have home network, 3 desktops, internet through wireless router hooked to windows XP via cables, other two pc's are wireless, new gateway pc has printer that i want other two pc's to be able to print on, i have allowed sharing, verified that all are using same workgroup name, i do have other pc seeing the vista pc but when i double click to see items shared says access not allowed, see system administrator, path not found, on the vista it shows connected to network, printer shared, so i am completely at a loss, anyone able to help, that has had this problem. thank you in advance for any help
I'm using a pc with a wireless adapter to surf on a friends wireless network. I have 2 pc at home, connected the a wired network, sharing files. Is it possible to share the wireless internet with the pc thats connected through a ethernet router to the wireless pc? I would like to do this until I get a wireless adpter for the other pc.
Hey can anyone help? I just set up a wireless n/w at home, only two PCs. Both running XP Home SP2 and fully up to date. Everything works fine except one PC is not able to see the shared files on the other. The other PC shows up in My Network Places but clicking on it gets the error message:
"\\[computer name] is not accessable. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator .........
Logon Failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer."
Any idea how to grant the requested logon type. The setup of both PCs was done using the networking wizard and firewalls have been opened to the necessary IP addresses.

Hello - I'm new
I wish to remove settings I put in on using "Set up a wireless network wizard" I cannot find a way to access the information to delete it.
Do you mean that you want to delete or disable a network connection you created with the wizard?
If that is what you want to do click "start/settings/network and dialup connections" and disable or delete the connection.

I have a laptop which is a part of my home network. When I am at work, I log onto our work network using wireless also. At work, I can see the workgroup and network but in order to open anything I must first enter my work username and password.
While I am at work, another work machine can pick up my laptop while I am connected to the work network. What I dont want, is for work people to be able to access my shared folders on my laptop that are normally available for my home network. I do have user accounts on my laptop with passwords but the work computers seem to bypass that and are able to open any of my shared files. How do I protect my computer from other wireless networks that I may log into?
Thanks so much,
If XP Pro and using the default file sharing, simply give file/folder permissions to only those accounts you want to have access.
If XP Home, or Pro using SFS, don't share private folders or set the Windows XP firewall to not allow exceptions.
Gday I've Broadband Crossover sharing Wireless network Configuring and got a bit of a problem I'm having trouble solving I have a Desktop which I'm trying to network with an EeePC for the purposes of internet connection and file sharing Both are running Win Ultimate I'm using a USB Mobile Broadband dongle on the Desktop and a crossover cable between the two Now I can get the file sharing set up no problems with the Homegroup feature and internet connection sharing works fine too But my concern is that for some reason Win is lumping the 'Local Area Connection' for the crossover cable and the Mobile Broadband connection together as the same 'Unidentified Network' I've attached a screen shot to illustrate I don't like this It means that in order to set up a homegroup which is the only way I've been able to figure out how to get the file sharing to work I have to set the 'Unidentified Network' to the 'Home' location Considering this includes my connection to the internet it really doesn't seem secure at all especially if I enable file sharing Does anyone know how I can split the two connections the Crossover LAN and the mobile broadband into two separate 'unidentified networks' so I can apply the 'Home' template to one and the 'Public' to the other Or any other means of setting up a secure crossover network with a shared internet connection Thanks in advance

Bought a new laptop with wireless card. Can connect to the internet through the Linksys broadband router. This router is connected directly to my desktop. (Both run on XP home edition)
I think that I have done all that is needed to set up the in-home network. I have some folders in the desktop that I set up as shared and I can access them using the laptop. I had set these up as shared files quite awhile ago so that I could share with my old windows 98 PC.
Last night I decided to add more folders for file sharing,so I right clicked on them, went to sharing and security and turned them into shared files. But using Windows Explorer on the laptop, I do not see these new folders. How is it that some old files are shared yet the new ones I want to add don't want to cooperate. What have I overlooked ?
I don't know about using Windows Explorer, but what happens (if you have these in the same workgroup) if you (on the laptop) go into My Network Places, click on view workgroup computers, and then double click the desktop's icon?
Or, if you're not using same workgroup, what do you get with
Start - Run - \\desktop - OK where 'desktop' is the desktop's name or IP address?
Hi I have a Dell XPS 420 with a 64 bit windows 7 pro installed. My computer has a Broadcom 802.11g wireless adapter. I can see the adapter in network adapters (It has a red cross underneath it). But I dont see this adapter in the Network and Sharing center. Can someone help me with this problem.
The red cross in the icon indicates that the adapter isn't connected to a wireless network. Until it does, it isn't going to appear in the "Network & Sharing Center".
If you hover your mouse over the network icon in the Notification Area beside the clock, it should indicate that Networks are Available. Click it to reveal the available networks and then "Connect" to yours.
I just added a 5th computer (xppro) to an unsecured wireless network running on an SMC router with an xphome and 3 98se computers that's worked flawlessly for years. The 5th computer gets the internet fine and can access files on the existing units, but I get a "log in/access denied" message when I try to transfer files to it.
Configuration of 5th computer:
Given to me so already had an admin account with no password;
I added another admin account with password-didn't help;
It's running Mcafee security which I can't turn off;
Windows firewall is turned off.
What's preventing the other computers from accessing the 5th computer?
Edit:The 5th computer is connected with a LinkSys usb adapter.
Hi everyone I have two computers I would like to share files between over a wireless network One computer is a desktop the other is a laptop Both computers use Windows XP All afternoon I have been reading about how to share files but I cannot get it to work on my computers My laptop uses my Linksys wireless router successfully to get Internet access so that is not a problem My desktop is wired to the wireless router so it also has Internet access Unfortunately I cannot seem to set up a network between the two computers successfully When Wireless Trouble Solved: Network File-Sharing I quot View workgroup computers quot on my desktop the desktop computer Solved: Wireless Network File-Sharing Trouble itself shows up and I can view its shared files But when I click Solved: Wireless Network File-Sharing Trouble quot View workgroup computers quot on my laptop I get an error message that says quot Mshome is not accessible You might not have permission to use this network resource Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available quot I have been trying to troubleshoot this myself all day with no luck Does anyone have any idea what I need to do to get these computers networked nbsp
Ping each computer from the other and see what you get. More than likely this is a firewall issue since both are using XP. What firewalls are running?
I have a guest House with 10 rooms
The wireless network in not secured as we are in the middle of nowhere
One guest has mentioned that she thinks her files have been accessed over the network (by another guest?)
Just wondered if there was a way to prevent this from happening instead of asking them to each turn off File Sharing when they come here
They are picking up the signal from a Netgear Extender
I have a file sharing problem on my home network. The set up is extremely simple:
I have a Trendnet TEW-652BRP wireless router. I have a wired desktop connected to it, and a wireless dell laptop as well. Both have perfect internet access. In this configuration, the two computers can not see eachothers shares. Pinging goes through, but no way on the shares. If I turn off wifi on the laptop, and plug it directly into the router, then everything is peachy. Network sharing goes through without a problem. Therefore, the problem is in my wireless settings.
The question is, what wireless setting could be preventing me from seeing shares on my home network?
I have recently seen the same problem on a NAS sharing - not working on wireless
It was fixed by a firmware update on the router - Netgear
My printer is connected to computerA which is connected through ethernet to computerB which connects to a wireless network. The wireless network has an internet connection and also serves several laptops, unfortunately the laptops cannot "see" computerA on the network and consequently cannot use the shared printer, the internet connection is available the on all computers. The one laptop runs windowXP and everything else uses windows7. ComputerB has no trouble using the printer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Can you ping computerA from one of the laptops on the wireless connections.http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/94005-sharing-printer-through-mixed-wired-wireless-network.html

I have a windows Xp Home Dell Dimension 9100 that has the internet and printer connected to it and i want two laptops to be able to use the net and printer and share their files on the Dell. One laptop is a Toshiba Tecra Te2100 running Xp Pro and the other is a Hp Compaq nx5000 also running Xp pro.
i have a home network with 2 laptops, a desktop & a wireless router. all the computers are connected wirelessly. the internet works fine on all the computers, but i want to know how can i share files between computers? e.g. can a send a word document from my desktop to my laptop through the wireless network? or can i play mp3 files from my desktop on my laptop through the wireless network? how do i go about setting up this configuration? 2 of the computers are running windows vista & the other one is windows xp home sp 2.
This TCP/IP Home Networking and File Sharing Tutorial should get you started.
I have a Belkin N1 vision router and a desktop with a n1 desktop wireless adapter. Now i have been having a problem with my desktop. The card connects to the router no problem, but the internet is really slow taking between 10-15 min to fully load a page, if it does at all. All other wireless devices work fine on the network.
I have just disabled the security on the router and bobs your uncle i have fully working internet. Now i was using the "WPA/WPA2-personal" setting, so what setting should i use as this is obviuosly affecting my desktop.
Sounds like you need updated drivers on the laptop if encryption is working but very slow.
I'm having 2 computers: a Desktop and a laptop, both has Windows XP. The desktop is connected to the wireless router with LAN cable and the laptop connects using wireless connection.
I want to share files and printer between those computers but although I entered both computers to the same workgroup and enabled file and printer sharing I can't access one computer from the other.
Can you help me find what other settings should I change?

What is the point of copy a wireless profile in Network sharing center?http://www.vistax64.com/general-discussion/303079-what-point-copy-wireless-profile-network-sharing-center.html
There are 2 machines in the same workgroup/wireless network. No intention to create a homegroup. A new user is created on each machine as password protected sharing is enabled. Both machines are able to see each other in the
same workgroup/wireless network. Both are in the same location(Work, Home, Public) network. This is the Network and Sharing Centre.
This is the prompt. Not able to enter the user ID, password to access the public document folders on the machine.
This is the sharing properties of the public documents folder.
Please provide steps to resolve the issue. Same error prompt, sharing properties on both machines. Thanks.
We have three 64 bit Window 7 machines on an Ethernet wireless/wired router (ASUS WL-520GC). Worked great? one of the three computers hosts a USB printer and shares with no problems (via a HomeGroup).
We had a broadband power line modem on the same Ethernet network connection and all three computers had sharing of the WAN internet? then we lost our internet connection capability when our supplier went bust!
We are now using a Verizon Wireless USB 720 broadband modem on the same computer that hosts the printer. That computer has internet connection and works fine. We cannot get the remaining two computers to see the internet.
Bridging the Verizon USB ?Home? network and the Ethernet ?Public? network doesn?t seem to work because we can?t set the local area network to ?Home.?
If I was going to use a Verizon USB modem on a network, I would use a router that you plug the modem into. Check out http://www.cradlepoint.com/ or do a Google search. I remember seeing routers for USB modems (cell service) for as low as $35, but most users recommend Cradlepoint routers.
If you are still on the Verizon 30 trial, you should check out http://www.millenicom.com/, Millenicom has no contract and much higher usage caps, even unlimited using Verizon and Sprint service.
I thought I might add this thread for those who are facing the "Page load fail " with losing wireless connection.
The problem is with the QUTIL.DLL file that is most likely corrupted and damaged.
To be sure go to run > cmd > ipconfig /all > enter
an error msg will popup stating the dll file name "QUTIL.DLL"
if so just replace it with a fresh new QUTIL.DLL file.
you will regain the wirless network connection on your notification bar and will manage to connect and you will regain access to the Network and Sharing page
You are a lifesaver...however, I have one novice question. Exactly how do you replace the file with the new file? Step by step instructions would be great. Thanks so much for posting this and saving me days of research!http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/204768-network-sharing-page-load-fail-wireless-connection-off.html

I've had real trouble locating this particular window in Windows 10. The only way I can get to it is if I create a manual entry for a wireless network. In Windows 7 you used to be able to get to it for existing wireless networks that I had previously connected to. Does anyone have any idea how to get to it? Many thanks

I have one laptop connected to the internet and equipped with windows XP SP2
I have a second laptop with win2000
I have both connected via an ad hoc network. I use wep encryption and the tcp/ip settings are 192.168.0.1 subnet 255.255.255.0 for the host. For the client: 192.168.0.2, 255.255.255.0, Gateway: 192.168.0.1, Dns: 192.168.0.1
I can ping to the outside world with the client (win200) pc. But I am not able to get a webpage.
Does anybody see the problem with this configuration, what do I need to do to get DNS working?
How do I keep 'Use windows to configure my wireless network settings' checked?
I have a wireless home network (kids computers plus my laptop) but my main desktop was wired. A couple of days ago I fitted a wireless card to the PC and now, every time I start the computer, there is no connection. What I have to do every time is check the box against 'Use windows to configure my wireless network settings'. Once this is OK'ed then the computer connects. The next time I start the computer the box has unchecked itself and I have to check it again.
As a point of interest, Wireless Zero Configuration is set to auto and is running.
