Network old XP with new Win7 computer

Q: Network old XP with new Win7 computer

I just purchased a Win7 desktop and Win7 laptop and a router for the wireless laptop. What do I need to do to be able to see the files on the old XP computer? I hooked this computer up to the router also and am not able to see the files on the old XP. I just want to transfer some files from the old to the new, but haven't been able to find any good instructions out there. Please help! I'm afraid the old XP is about to go on me and desperately need some files off of it! Thanks!!

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.

As the topic says, I'm having an issue where a computer on a network cannot see the other computer on the network.  It is able to connect to the internet, and I double-checked based on earlier threads and the network discovery IS ON.  This computer
is able to create a Homegroup and the other computer on the network is able to see the shared folders when it joins the homegroup, but I cannot create a homegroup on the
other computer and have this computer see it to join it.  The other computer sees this computer in Windows Explorer under Network, but as far as the problem computer is concerned, it is the only computer on the network.
Despite this, when I open up the Network Map, it shows both computers, the router, and the modem.

I changed my ISP to "Clear.com" and now one, seldom used, Win7 computer will not connect to the wireless network. I have two other desktops hardwired and two laptops on the wireless that work fine. The two laptops are in the same room as the Clear 'modem/router', while the Win7 box is not, if that matters. The Win7 box worked in that location when I was on the cable and had a separate wireless router.

The box that will not connect, does show that the wireless connection is available, and the adapter shows to be working properly in Device Manager.

Oh, and Windows Troubleshooter says it cannot fix it.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am running Win7 Pro 64 bit on my desktop computer which is hardwired to my network. I have a Kindle Fire and whenever I try to browse across the network and access the Win7, I can see it but I cannot open it. I always get a bad path or general login failure message on the Fire. I can browse to and access the Win7 from any other computer on the network so the problem seems to be with the Kindle-Win7 interface. The Kindle has no trouble whatsoever browsing to and accessing a computer running XP Pro 32bit that is wirelessly connected to the network. I've tried several different file management apps on the Kindle and I have to admit I'm stumped. I'm beginning to wonder if it's some sort of bug in 7, the Kindle OS, or both. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

I have been trying to set up a homegroup to share between a desktop and two laptops. After many attempts I got the two laptops to work by removing guest from "deny access to this computer from the network" in the local security settings. Both of the laptops were running windows 7 professional. Unfortunately my desktop is running windows 7 home premium which doesn't have the local security settings option. So my question is can I remove the guest account from "deny access to this computer from the network" in windows 7 home premium through some interesting bit of registry editing or something? I really don't want to upgrade to professional if possible.

You shouldn't need to remove guest from anywhere in order to set up a Homegroup. It appears as if you are working around another problem.

Most Homegroup problems can be solved by going through the Homegroup trouble shooter.

Dear Bogolo,

your question is not clear what do you mean by

that 4th computer, which is the trouble computer, only has problems when it tries to connect to a specific computer on the network. It can connect and see the shared files on the other 2 no problem.

also, the computer I am having trouble connecting to can see the shared files/folders of ALL of the computers without a password prompt, including on the computer that is having the problem.

can you please re post your exact question.

I have all my sharing settings set and I have gone through the network set-up many times, fiddled with my router settings a little bit, but came up with nothing.

When I search for other PC's on my network (from DT 1) I find no other PC's or the wireless printer. When I search from any other PC I find and have access to everything except DT 1!

I have Sophos Anti-virus and firewall, disabling the firewall makes no difference (windows firewall already disabled).

I cannot see the wireless printer in the 'network discovery' but it shows up when I need to print and prints just fine.

I am a bit confused. In the above you say homegroup, and workgroup. It has to be one or the other. Which one is it?

Hi

I have tried searching the forums and tried all possible solutions but none of them seem to work.

My setup is as follows:

"Server":
Windows 7 Professional x86
Connected to Draytek 2820n MIMO router with Gigabit Cat6 cable (Win reports 1Gbps)

(brand new) Laptop:
Windows 7 Professional x64
Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300
Connected to the same router wirelessly 802.11n (Win reports 300-450mbps)

Router:
WPA2 AES

I seem to have a problem with server to laptop transfer speeds which look to be capped at approx 3-3.5 MB/s. It seems too low for a 802.11n speed to me!

I feel like I have tried everything:

1. Removed antivirus, disabled windows firewalls on both computers
2. Removed Remote Differential Compression on both computers
3. Disabled autotuning
4. Tested server's HDD with SeaTools
5. Disabled IPv6 on both computers
6. Disabled Large Send Offload in NIC's advanced properties on the server
7. Screenshot from NetCPS is attached below

Any help would be much appreciated!

A:Win7 to Win7 slow network transfers

A question if i may, how far away is the laptop from the wifi router?

Distance affects transfer speeds tremendously...

As an example, I've a laptop hooked up via GbE (1Gbps) using CAT-6 cables to a router that is transfering files to another laptop thats using Wireless N @ 150Mbps..

When the laptop on wireless in right on top of the router i get 8 - 10 MB/s speeds, when it's in a room separated by a couple of walls, it drops to as low as 2-3 MB/s..

Physical obstacles and distance from the router are two major factors... Also try to rule out interference from any other 2.4 GHz devices in the vicinity.... Any other wireless networks in the area using the same channel perhaps? If so, try changing the Upper and Control channels to a different number in the router configuration....

Getting 300+ Mbps requires a dual band 2.4GHz channels which may be impinging on the spectrum that other nearby networks are using.... leading to interference and poorer than expected performance...

A:Slow Network connection between Win7 and Win7

Try resetting your WINSOCK catalog:
Winsock entries tells Windows 7 how to access your network services.
Additionally, your TCP/IP protocol can be corrupted.
The TCP/IP protocol is a stack of 4 layers that includes several transport layers.
When this stack is corrupt you will constantly have connectivity issues.

Open a command [CMD] prompt with admin privileges,
then execute these commands:
netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)
netsh interface ipv4 reset (reset TCP/IP stack)
netsh interface ipv4 reset

Can't remember where I found this online - but it has helped me with network browsing in the past.

A:How can I Access a Child Network From a Parent Network in Win7 64bit

Why did you add a second "router" (i.e. the E2500)? You describe only a PC and NAS connected to it, which I assume are both wired-connected to the E2500. Doesn't sound like you need any of the wireless capabilities of the E2500.

What you really should have done is get a "switch", not a router, to satisfy your needs to connect that PC and NAS. A switch has none of the firewall and security features that a router has. It's simply a "port-multiplier" which has one upstream connection port (say to a wired port on your primary Comcast gateway, i.e. modem + router combined), same as your E2500 is currently connected through its WAN port to your Comast router. The switch also has an additional number of downstream ports, to allow devices in its physical vicinity to be wired-connected, same as your router did. So to the downstream wired devices currently connected to your E2500 the "switch" device looks identical, and provides the identical access to the Internet.

But the switch will provide unblocked access to all other devices on the primary LAN hosted by itself as well as by the Comcast router. And it will also provide unblocked access to all downstream devices, to any upstream device (like your first computer). Everything connected through the switch appears identical to how it would look if connected directly to the primary router, and access between ALL devices is now possible and unrestricted by firewalls and security (since there's no second router involved).

The net effect is to provide wired connection of all the downstream devices to the primary router, as if they each had their own individual wired connection to the primary router. But they don't each have their own wired connection obviously, they're simply sharing the one upstream connection from switch to router, splitting the bandwidth (of that one upstream connection) as needed whenever they need to.

So, using a simple inexpensive reliable "gigabit switch" such as the Netgear GS105 instead of your E2500, you would connect the same cable between the Comcast router and your current E2500 to one of the ports on the GS105. Then you'd connect your second PC and the NAS to two more ports on the GS105. Bingo, presto, the second PC and NAS are now part of the primary Comcast LAN's attached devices, exactly as if they had been connected directly to one of the wired ports on the Comcast box.

That's my suggestion. A home LAN with two or more routers isn't "friendly" because of the firewall and security issues (which can be disabled, but really shouldn't come into play at all). You simply want the "port-multiplying" function of a "switch" at the remote room locations around your house, to provide additional wired Internet connectivity (say to smart TV's and players) where you have only one ethernet cable run to that room.

The multiplexing effect of a switch provides no greater than the upstream maximum speed to any of its downstream connected devices, but as long as they're not all working at the same time you might as well have full speed to each downstream device. Otherwise, they will "share" the upstream bandwidth.
NOTE: if you actually do need wireless capability in the neighborhood vicinity of that GS105 switch (which itself only has wired capability) because the wireless range of your primary Comcast WiFi router doesn't reach far enough with sufficient connection quality and speed, you can add an inexpensive "wireless access point (WAP)". This is another form of "switch" which includes both wired and wireless capability (like a WiFi router). The wireless network radiating around the WAP is a SECOND wireless network in your house, and is facilitated by the wired connection between the WAP and the primary router.

If you need this (i.e. remote WiFi to areas of the house where the primary WiFi network can't get to), we can talk more about it. But th... Read more

Is your motherboard the P67 FTW? Do you have a driver CD for it? If not then you will need to head over to EVGA - EVGA Download Center find your motherboard from the drop down list and download and install the Network driver there.

A:bought used computer, Win7 "not genuine", Win7 product sticker on case

You're needing to find a Windows 7 Home Premium ISO from a well-known well-respected source.  If you ever want Ultimate, you're going to have to purchase a license, either for an OEM or for a Microsoft 32/64 pack.  After you have legalized the Home Premium, you probably can purchase an upgrade [from Home Premium to Ultimate] for a pretty good price, make sure of your source!  You want a legal version of Ultimate.

Hi everyone.
Ok after growing tired of seeing my 2012 laptop run faster on windows 7 than my 2015 lenovo, i decided to install windows 7 on it as well.
After solving enough problems (burned a dvd since the usb port was not recognized by the windows installer once it started running, changed some stuff in the bios from Win8-ideal to Win7-ideal to get the installer to load in the first place, tried 3 different versions of win7 because one never went above 0% progress).
When i was finally able to install windows in a partition (im keeping half of my drive available for installing Ubuntu in the future), I got it to load and the computer reboots. Haven't tried safemode yet (this was yesterday at midnight).
Has anybody come across this problem? What can i do? I'll provide whatever specific details im asked. Thanks in advance!

OK, first I have a desktop, win 7 pro 64. I never thought I'd own a laptop, need networks so I might have disabled something at some point.
(I've disabled everything I don't need for performance reasons - game/graphics rig)

It has 2 ethernet connections. 1 is to modem. 2 is open.

I recently bought a laptop, win 7 home premium 64.

So time for file sharing. Bought a crossover network cable.

Trying to set up a home network. Works on the laptop, but going through all the troubleshooters and all I get on the PC is 'cannot add home network to this computer'.

I can see and get into my PC from the laptop, but the PC won't register a network OR my laptop. (I actually want the opposite as it's easier to use the PC for transfers/work/etc...)

None of the troubleshooting in Win7Pro PC is working, any ideas?

(I've set both clocks to internet time, I have everything open to file sharing on both machines)

==edit

I did just notice that when I turn on file and printer sharing in network & sharing/advanced settings and hit save changes,

everytime I reopen the window it's set back to off. Doesn't matter how many times i turn it on and save, it always gets turned off again.


The problem is in bold. Once you disable those services all bets are off on the network sharing being functional until all your required networking services are all enabled and set to automatic.

You shot yourself in the foot by doing that and disabling those services doesn't do much to improve system performance.

The reason that file and printer sharing isn't staying on is because you disabled the service it requires.

Not as easy as the title sounds mind you.

I did some tweaking,
at first I had problems getting to my XP systems.

Now I setup another Win7 System, tweaked it the same way,
and they wont see each other.

I can however, ping the IP's and the computer names.
Also in Nortons Security Suite, the computer came up in
the connections for trust control.
I added it to trusted, and still no go.

Not sure what to check or where to do, as my main system is the same OS and running the same service tweaks.
Also, to mention,
both machines see my XP computers, just not each other now.

UPdated.

I can in the windows address bar, explore, not IE explore..
type \\Computername .. then connect using the username/password of the system.

So I can do all this, but it will not show in the normal networking window.. ??

I know I've asked this before (and I'll probably ask it again in a few months). Has anyone found a 3rd party tool to replace the deleted Windows full network map?

I know the Windows tool was not perfect, but it provided a lot of information for each found device (MAC address, IPv4 addrs, IPv6 addrs, etc.). The topology displayed was not always accurate, but it gave an approximation of what was connected to what.

SoftPerfect's NetScan is pretty good, but I'd be willing to pay for a tool that is closer to the old Windows tool. NetScan at least understands IPv6. Many otherwise useful tools don't.

Has anyone heard why Windows dropped it?

This office network has happily transferred files between OS 10 and XP for several years. They have just acquired a Win7 machine which asks for a password and user name to access the Mac, and none of the known User name/PW combos work. I even created a new account on both machines with the same User Name/PW and still get a "Wrong User name/PW" message.
I have closed the firewalls, checked all the sharing settings, etc, to no avail. I can ping the Mac from the Win7 machine and it shows up in the network.
What do I need to do to transfer files from the Mac to the Win7 machine?

The sort of guide I'm looking for would start at the beginning. What's the first thing to check. Then check this and so on......

Have you gone into the "Network and Sharing Center", clicked the link at the left for "Change advanced sharing settings" and set:
Turn on network discovery
Turn on File and Printer sharing
Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the Public folders
Enabled file sharing for devices that use 40- or 56-bit encryption
Ideally, both (all) computers should be in the same Workgroup and you should be logged in to all computers with the same Username/Password.

I never had any problem networking XP and 7, so there's certainly no need to upgrade the XP PC.

If you haven't already done so, you should install the Link Layer Topology Discovery Responder in the XP PC:

A:Going nuts trying to network XP to Win7

First, ensure your workgroups are named the same. I can't remember exactly which SP's made the change but by default some were named WORKGROUP and other HOMEGROUP (I could be thinking of Vista though). Also keep in mind that if you're using Win7's homegroup, that it's IPV6 based and you will need it running on your XP machine. Hope this helps.

I want to set up an ad-hoc, non-internet wireless network with a printer on one PC that allows others to connect, share directories and print wirelessly. I have a Linksys WRT54G that I want to use as the WAP and router to the ethernet printer or connect to the printer via USB and just use the Linksys as the WAP. Everything I read talks about hooking up to the internet; we don't want to do that. Possible? Can you walk me through the settings on the Linksys to receive clients and allow printing? Already have two main computers set up for Workgroup and the PCs share over a LAN connection, just need to take it wireless. Will be putting the Linksys on the PC with the printer and finding another solution to hook to the other PC.

(Don't think it matters, but both PCs are HP SFF Win7 Pro with on-board 1 Gigabit Ethernet)

A:Network Win7 and WinXP

On the Windows 7 machine, you should first make sure that you are sharing the C:>Users folder which is a default setting which allows you to share folders which are inside of that particular folder. Picture below.

It may also be easier to put any files or folders you need to share with the XP machine inside the C:>Users>Public folders because the restrictions are eased up on these folders once you share them per the second picture. After that you can place a any file or folder into any of the Public folders on the Win7 machine and they will be shared out with the Workgroup machines.

I'm not sure why you would set permissions for a Homegroup because it's best not to have a Homegroup set up in this instance.

A:Win7 Network Issues

Could be countless things, down to the driver you're using for your NIC. (We're talking about a wired pc here, right?)

I'd start by scanning with Malwarebytes to ensure a clean system. Hopefully you're not rooted lol.
Make sure your router is in a relatively cool place and not near the exhaust of pc heat.
Disable any 3rd party antivirus and/or firewall as a test effort.
Disable IPv6 permanently if you do not use Homegroup.
If you disable IPv6, open services.msc and disable IP Helper service.
Permanently disable DNS Client service.
Important: Make sure Bonjour service is not in services or mdnsresponder.exe is not in task manager. Google how to get rid of it if it is.

If nothing helps, I'd consider completely uninstalling any AV or firewall. There is a big difference with uninstalling as opposed to only disabling. Complete removal is necessary for testing purposes.

You could check to see if there is a firmware update to your router as well.

The best luck I have had mixing either 7 or Vista with XP is to use a Workgroup and the default public folders. Enable file and printer sharing. Disable password control. Here's the weird thing.. it seems once you have it set up to use the public folders, then if you share a different folder, it will work with the new folder also.

Don't ask me why but it does.

Don't try to use the 'homegroup' stuff. It won't work with XP. Just use the same workgroup as your XP already has. If you have some kind of domain setup, then I can't help you. I'm not a network expert. Just relating how I got my home systems to "Lan" for me.

OK so your wired to the router,

The 169 number on your connection is widows way of saying nothing coming back ie: DHCP not being assigned.

have you another Lan cable that you can use, try using the other Gig Lan that you have. If all fails,

have your laptop next to your desktop and plug the Lan into your laptop and the desktop share your connection on the laptop and see if the laptop gives the desktop a ip.

Suddenly, Windows 7 will only see one of the 4 other machines on my network. It was working fine a few days ago. I have tried uninstalling Comodo and everything else I can think of - same result. All other machines show all 4 other machines on the network. My Win7 machine only shows one other machine, which is a Vista notebook. The other 3 machines that don't show up are another Vista notebook and 2 XP desktops. All machines can see the Win7 box and even print through it. What is going on? Why would one machine show up but not others??

Hi and welcome MX

I can assume you are using homegroup for networking. Homegourp is fine if the machines are all win 7 but if not it can be problematic. another problem win 7 has is the use of IPv6. In older networking (XP and early vista) IPv4 was used and was more stable. If you want to change from homegroup to workgroup its pretty simple. Just go into network and sharing>device>properites> ipv6 and uncheck. then add a new network using workgroup and not homegroup

Let us know if you need any help with this and good luck\

As far as I know, if a machine has Windows 7 then it will be seen on the network.

You might look into turning OFF the network discovery on those machines that are NOT shared. BUT, then they may not be able to see the "Shared" machines.

Are you using "homegroup" for networking??? On mixed networks you should be using "workgroup" as it is much more stable and uses IPv4 instead of the IPv6 that homegroup uses.

To test that simply create a new network connection using workgroup. If it works You can disable IPv6 and kill network

Friend has an old computer. I put XP on it, but could not find drivers for the onboard video and sound devices..
So I figured that, because I did not need to install any drivers when I upgraded my desktop to 7, that it would work on his.

However, the computer doesn't have a dvd drive, and I could not get the computer to install XP via usb, so that is out of the question.

When I bought a student copy of 7, I was able to download an .exe.. I did not install it on my computer from the .exe, because I burned a disk, but could I just copy that to a flash drive, put it on the junked computer, and install it as a trial until he gets the product key?

A:XP, Vista, Win7 not seeing each other on network

Windows 7 tries to create something called a homegroup when it is first connected to a new network. The whole 'homegroup' protocol works only between Windows 7 machines and will make the Win 7 computer invisible to anything but another Win 7 machine configured to be within the same 'homegroup'. You'll need to play with the network setting to get rid of the homegroup and enable the old fashioned sharing model if you want the XP computer to access files on the Win 7 one.

As for Vista, I believe that sharing and security were oomphed a bit and the OS simply doesn't do any kind of sharing by default. I'm not entirely sure if that's the issue for you but it sounds rather plausible.


P.S. To get rid of the homegroup you do the following (preferably while the Win 7 computer is connected to your home network):

- Click on the connection's icon in the notification area
- Select Open Network and Sharing Center
- Select Homegroup and Sharing Options
- Select Change Advanced Sharing Options
- Assuming your home network has been marked as a 'safe' (home or work network) you want to change the options under 'Home or Work'
- Enable network discovery and the anything else you might need (file and printer sharing, public folder sharing, media streaming, etc.). I'd also recommend enabling 128 bit encryption for extra security but if you're still having issue turn it down to 40 bit encryption.
- If you want to do file sharing also choose to use password protected sharing and select the 'Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers' option as well.

hi,
i am windows certified but , i have not studied about how to install windows 7 in network
with another pc not a server
please would you give the steps for that kind of installation
 

A:network installation with win7

It should do it by itself when you fire up the computer and it (the OS) finds the Wi-Fi or Cat5 connection.

You will have to set up your sharing on the new machine, but all of the existing ones of the other machine(s) should be found.

NOTE: Windows 7 and Vista like to have a common user account with a password on all machines. These need to be the same account name and password. I use a Admin account, that is my "backdoor" in case my main account get clobbered.

I have an XP box that hosts my hard drive farm (via a port replicator). It contains my key network drive S:SALT. All my XP machines were on a workgroup (SPICE) and all the machines can see each other on that SPICE network and could access SALT. All my desktop computers come to a switch. The switch also has a router on it that that accesses the internet via a wireless bridge (as opposed to a hard line). The router is also a WiFi device serving the several laptops.

My main desktop machine (ANISE) in my office is a Win7 box migrated up from an XP installation. It was able to see SALT from the beginning and have successfully been able to communicate between this Win7 box and my network XP box.

Here is the PROBLEM. . . .

I have purchased new Windows 7 boxes and they can't see the network of computers. They can all access the WiFi and get out to the internet just fine, but they can't see the SALT drive or the XP box.

In the new windows boxes, they started out with the WiFi Router as the link between them and the Internet. Then I changed the network to a HomeGroup. They were still able to get to the internet. What I guess I can't figure out is how to get them to see this legacy XP box.


When you connected them up to the wireless network, did you select the network to be a "Home Network"? If not, and you selected "Public Network" it would block the ports for services that allow the machine to be discoverable and to discover other machines.

Just an idea.

Does anyone know what the executable file is (specifcally in Win 7-64bit) that brings up the "network and Sharing" section in Control Panel or, more specially, the Local Area Connection.

I have a problem child who needs local admin rights to run some software, but I really really really really don't want to give him the opportunity to play with IP settings and the like.

If they can ping one another, you can share files, provied you have allow what ever files to be shared (ie creating shares), use the correct username and password to access each machine, no firewall blackage.

Check this tut our. If you don't care about internet connectio, just don't do the bridging part.

I currently have an N wireless Netgear router that both computers are hooked up via ethernet & my machine also has the N wireless dongle from Netgear, but they dont have drivers for 64 yet.

Now I want to send a couple of files to my other computer which is my buddies. I want him to also be able to send me files, but he tends to surf the net a little less carelessly than I would and I want to make sure when hes sending or receiving info from my particular computer that I dont get a virus or anything.

So how do I set up a network between a Win 7 64 computer & an XP Pro 32 computer, making sure to extra safeguard my main machine?

A:Need to set up a network for file transfer from Win7 64

First make sure both machines are on the same workgroup. My Computer>Properties>Computer Name for XP and Computer>Properties>Advanced System Settings Computer Name for 7... they should both be defaulted to WORKGROUP, you can change it if you want but not necessary.

Now on both machines make sure you have Computer Browser, SSDP Discovery, TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper, Server and Workstation services running. You can check this in Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services

Also make sure on both Machines that your TCP/IP v4 settings for WINS has NetBIOS over TCP/IP set to Default or Enabled.

On 7 open up the run command and run gpedit.msc then go to Computer Configuration>Security Settings>Network List Manager Policies Under Network name your network the same as on your other machines(they should be the same) and under Unidentified and Identifying Networks set to private. This will force Windows 7 to connect to the default network you just set in gpedit and bypass the "Network Detection" feature. ( easier and guaranteed to work first time)

Now in Network and Sharing Center under Change Advanced Sharing Settings>Home Network Check Turn Off Network Discovery, Turn On File and Printer Sharing, Turn Off Public Folder Sharing, Turn On Password Protected Sharing.

On the XP machine make sure at least one folder is shared.

Now The XP machine should bae able to see the 7 machine but have no access, and the 7 machine will see the XP machine and have access to whatever you set to share on the XP machine.

Hello all,

I recently created a Win7 image in VM Workstation 6.5.3. On the host machine (running Windows XP) I was able to access the internet using a NAT connection. Unfortunately, when I migrated the image to my VMWare ESXi Server (3.5.0), it was unable to connect to the internet.

The error message I get is "Windows did not detect a properly installed Network Adapter...". I'm really not sure what could be causing this issue. The Hardware tab in the VM Settings says that Network Adapter 1 exists and is a VM Network. The Device Status Connected checkbox is checked, as is the Connect at power on checkbox. Adapter type is set to flexible.

Does anyone know if there is a hardware compatibility issue for network adapters for Win 7 images on VMWare ESXi or something?

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Win7 VM No installed network adapter

Over a year and a half and still not a reply ?

It sounds like I am currently ran up against this same issue but i know for a fact I have created a NEW CLEAN BLANK virtual hard drive with Virtual Box ver. 4.1.8 Newest last stable edition . ..

It have got it to work , boot up and all but NO NETWORK ADAPTER HARDWARE FOUND !!!

I have been spending days on this trouble and about to switch back over to vmware player or virtualpc or ....

I can not just seem to find any solution for this delima .

I even tried bridging my Ethernet hardware RealTek NIC card with my Belkin Router to no avail ..

So if anyone would care to shed some light on this i would be very appreciated !

Hi All, This worked Ok the last time I accessed the win2K PC on my network some months back.

I have Acer7, AcerVista and Win2k. All with the same logon name and password.

Acer7 can access AcerVista but not Win2K.
AcerVista can access Acer7 and Win2K
Win2K can access Acer7 and AcerVista

So it is only Acer7 that keeps asking for the Password and rejecting it even though it is correct.

Also, Acer7 running TightVNC can access the Win2K system OK so the TCP/IP connection is OK.

Thoughts?

I have searched here and elsewhere and tried everything suggested, but still it asks for the password and rejects it.

Thanks

Ever since I migrated to windows 7, I can not get my laptop to connect to the internet.

The error message is "Unidentified network" and when I perform a diagnosis is says "Local connection does not have a valid IP configuration".

I think I've tried it all with no luck so far.

I connect directly to the modem with cable. I also have dug up an old stationary machine to work with and connected it to the very same network with no problems.

This is what I've tried:

*Ensure Ip adress and dns are received automatic
*Restart modem, reset button, and restart pc, swithed cables
*Tried the rebuild ip stack and winsock commands
*Checked for the Bonjour program interferrence (don't have it)
*typed in ip adress and dns manually
*deactivate ipv6
*checked the "do not identify network" option
*update nic driver
*Tried to see if wireless connection works (it doesn't)
*typed in the real mac adress.. and then a fake one
*getting ip adress from another router.
*turn off firewall, disable antivirus.

Is there a solution to this except reinstalling an old OS?

The old vista was 32bit and so was the Win7 upgrade kit.

I've read about a possible solution which is to enter a registry key to force dns
registration, but I don't really grasp it.

I'm getting desperate and yet more determined to find a solution to this.
What I'm really hoping for is for someone to say "Yes this problem was fixed, just do this and that.. "

Thank you


Hello PeterQ, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Thank you for listing what you have already tried, it will save time. It also tells us you have done some homework! Nice.

There was a missing registry entry in Vista that resulted in an all zeros MAC address, but that was corrected with 7, so unless you did an inplace upgrade from Vista to 7, it is not likely that applies. Please let us know how 7 was installed? "Clean" install? "In-place Upgrade"?

It would be helpful for us to be able to see your 'network' settings. There are several ways to do that. One way is to open a "elevated permission" command prompt (meaning right click on the command prompt icon and "Run as administrator"), then type: ipconfig /all

Then, right click inside the command prompt window and select "select all". Next press "Enter", then in the reply window where you are typing to us, you can paste the ipconfig. You can even edit out any personal info you do not want to appear.

We find pictures are worth a thousand words. Here are some links, if they are of help to you, on adding some to your posts:

Try turning your wireless switch off/on

Delete the wireless profile:

Now when attempting to connect you should get the prompt to enter passphrase

A:[SOLVED] Win7: Executables over the Network

Ok, so i got an update.

If i boot into safe mode with networking i can run the executables. So this leads me to believe that there is some application running that was interfering. I uninstalled AVG and completely disabled windows firewall, rebooted and it still didn't work.

I looked in msconfig and there is nothing else to uncheck in the startup tab. This is pretty much a fresh install. So the only thing left would be services. They are all microsoft services so there is no other ones running. I don't have a clue which one it could be.

If anyone has any suggestions i welcome them. I don't bite.

We have 30 computers all running XP, we are now due to replace them as they are 10 years old. Would I need to update my Server OS from SBS 2003 before installing Win7 on the clients ?

I know the proper procedure is to upgrade all tech together, back end through to front end, but would SBS 2003 handle and function at 100% ? If I go for an upgrade on the Server OS I would need to upgrade the server hardware to 64bit.

I can see the ????s stacking up !

Hello.

Last couple of moths we are migrating machines to win7. And the tendency of our company is to put all printers on network (server 2003). But something happens when we install new network printer. After installing new network printer, all the machines on win7 suddenly have lost connection to the all of the printers they have been connected to previously. And our policy is that users have no installing rights and we tend to keep that. Only solution is to go to the user and log on as admin and connect printer again. Did anybody had similar problems and has a solution or knows whats the problem. Thanks

A:Win7 machine + network printers

Yes we did. Sorry to say the solution was to install a new Print Server on Windows Server 2008 R2. All Windows 7 machines and XP machines have no issues with printers or them sticking.

I hope you find another solution. I will keep reviewing this Thread. -WS

A:Win7 does not connect to XP-Pro network shares

If your network is connected ok, that is,
1. You can view all other networked computers from any station
2. You can access anyone of those computers to view shared folder

but you cannot open the folder, then it is a security issue. Check your sharing permissions for your shared folders

Hello gingem,

Try these recommendations:

Create Identical UserNames and Passwords for both computers.

On both computers make sure that DHCP is enabled. http://iyogibusiness.spaces.live.com...1ACB!174.entry

Netbios need to be enabled on both computers.
http://ttcshelbyville.wordpress.com/...os-over-tcpip/

Try accessing the Shared Folder/Drive by using the IPAddress of the computer that you're trying to access.
Click on Start and type \\IPAddress\SharedFolderName then press enter. An alternative to the Shared Folder Name could be C or C$ which is the Local C Drive of the computer if you have the entire drive shared.

Please post an update.

You might try resetting both winsock and tcp/ip. Type the following commands one at a time into your command prompt and hit enter. I'm not sure why you are using WINS, I would go with DNS name resolution unless you have a really good reason to use WINS instead.

netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)
netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack)

Then try these commands> ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew

You might also want to post this at the security center of this forum to get more help with the virus problem.

If I were you, I'd create a base "System Image" on one HDD, then use Clonezilla to copy it over to other lappys... just dont activate the Image before you clone it, or all machines will have same registration key.

However, is it really that big a deal with only 5 machines at present?

There are two passwords. One for homegroup (network password). That lets you log onto the network, you need the users name/pword to get the share.

You can get rid of the network password by using workgroup instead of home group but you are still going to need the UID/pword.

If you really want to be password free you are going to have to take a big hit on security and allow all sharing for all people. Not a good idea.

A:Solved: Win7 and network problems-

Well after playing around for awhile it became obvious the problem with not seeing the other computers on the network was Norton security. Everthing work fine when I turned off the Norton fire wall. Clicked on the little network icon on the lower right of the main norton window. Edit the network trust to full trust and the computers will appear on the network map. Click on each computer on the map and edit the trust level to full trust. After that you can re-edit the network trust back to "protected".
Still have not worked out the problem with the remote printer. I can install it and print to it. But once I turn off the Win 7 computer and turn it back on, the printer is off line and can not be reconnected to. Will play with it for a couple days and repost. Maybe I will be able to get some help with the printer problem.

I have a home network with win7 pc's - a mix of home and pro. I used to be able to connect to all the computers across the network OK. but recently, one win7 home pc has become recalcitrant, refusing to allow other pc's on the network to log on to it. it keeps asking for credentials (user/password), but rejects what I know are the correct credentials and throws the "use another account" box on the screen. I know they're the correct user and password because I can log on and off the pc locally.

I gotta be doing something wrong, but heck if I know what it is. perhaps someone in the big brain-trust here knows?

A:win7 pc won't accept credentials across network

Be sure that the User "name" you are using is correct. If you changed it since building the computer.

I ran into a problem when I renamed my wife's computer to "Karen" (when I setup the computer I named it "user1"). So when I see her computer on the network it says Karen, but the credentials for network access are still looking for "user1". Run "net user" at a command prompt to see what the system thinks is the User name.

A:Solved: Win7 & XP in network with 2 printers

If I were you, I would make a couple of investments (all less than $100). Dump the USB modem. Get an ASDL modem with an Ethernet port. Also, purchase a SOHO router (like a Netgear, Linksys, Dlink or Belkin). Just about any one will do. Follow the instructions on setting up the devices. You will find that the router will hand out IP addresses in a specific range. Note that range.

Now you have a DHCP server on your network and you don't need software to connect. (I.e., it doesn't matter what computers you have on your network; everything will work via TCP/IP). Change all of your computer devices to DHCP. Change all of your printers to a static address, but this is important.

Using the range you recorded in an earlier step, manually assign addresses to the printers that are NOT in the range of the router. For example, if the router assigns addresses from 192.168.0.50 to 192.168.0.100, sent the printers to 192.168.0.200 and 201. Remember that you normally cannot use .1 (the router itself) or 255 (a broadcast IP).

Now, on all you computers, you want to install the printers locally, but assign them to a TCP/IP port. Remember, these are NOT network printers (Microsoft definition), they are local print devices, connected via network.

Using this setup, you don't need to do anything special to the computers, they will work right out of the box. You also don't need any additional drivers and you even have a firewall (of sorts). This setup also has the advantage of not relying on any individual PC or printer. XP failing will have no effect on the Windows 7 machine or vice versa. One or the other doesn't even need to be on.

I have just set up a new Win7 computer and am trying to access the HD across a home wireless network from my XP laptop. XP can see the Win7 but it is asking for USER NAME and PASSWORD. I put in, what i think is, my user name on the Win7 in the dialog box and then put in the password that I use to log into the Win7 when I boot it up but it rejects these. I went to look on the Win7 for user name and password and can't seem to find it in PROPERTIES of COMUPTER.

Can anyone help me with where the info it's asking for can be found?

Thanks,

A:How do I identify my user name to log onto Win7 from XP across network

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Make sure that you have identical user names and passwords on both Windows 7 and XP computers if you wish to access each computer. If you have created and/or own the computers you would have been an Admin and able to create the User Accounts. Here's a tutorial on how to access and create a user account in Windows 7.

Hi,
I have been using a d-link wireless access point for some time now, with a worldbook 1tb networked HD plugged into it, which i used to access/share files wirelessly.

Since upgrading to windows 7 i can no longer access my hard disk files, just not showing in network places. this is the same on any instance of windows 7.. but works fine with an xp machine i recently tested with.

is there any settings in windows 7 that i can adjust here.. nic or otherwise?

thanks guys

My local network printer is a HP Business Ink Jet 1200DN and it is currently serving 4 computers. I just added a Windows 7 computer to the network, but found the original HP Startup CD will not load the network printer driver under Windows 7. When the the Starter CD is opened and the "install driver" button is hit, a message appears stating that the software requires Internet Explorer (IE) 5 or greater. (My Windows 7 package has IE8 installed, so this error message is bogus.) It is noted that the Starter CD disk loads the printer network drivers OK on computers running Windows XP.

I checked out the HP Windows 7 printer support web page for the 1200DN printer and found that they provide one (1) download driver, which is strictly for the 1200 printer to PC connection using the USB cable. So this download is of no use for installations where the HP 1200 printer is used in network configurations.

A:How to fix Win7 incompatibility with Network Printer

Have you tried using the compatibility manager to install the drivers?

Do not allow the auto run to begin, if it does cancel it. Instead right click on the printers .exe file (setup file) and then click on "Troubleshoot compatibility", a window will open. After the scan tick the box for "troubleshoot program" then tic the box for "The program worked in earlier versions of windows but won't install or work now"

Now pick the version of windows you've used with the printer and it worked fine, if it was Vista sp2 then pick that, if XP sp3 then pick it etc etc.

Then click "Start the program", move the trouble shooter window to one side of the screen, the program tends to open under it out of view making it look like nothing happen, or check the taskbar either one.

Once installed and is working click "next" in the troubleshooter window, select "yes save these setting for this program".

Once done if the error window opens, click "this program installed correctly" and close it.

If the program fails to install or the printer fails to work right once installed do the same thing again but pick a different version of windows to install it as. You may have to try two or three, more? until you hit on the one that works for your printer but one should work.
You might have to uninstall the program before trying again with a different version of windows.

Then keep checking the manufactures web site for updated drivers, naturally if its a fairly old printer they may never offer win 7 drivers for it.

Keep in mind even at that there is a chance the printer will not work right with win 7 but doing as I suggest here should give you the best shot at it.

A:win7 keeps on Network Identifying..how to speed up that?

On my system it was my Epson printer's "EventManager" application that was doing it. I stopped that from starting when the computer started and it solved the problem.

You can check to see what you have starting on Startup by looking on the Startup Tab in MSCONFIG. (Type that in the Start box).

Most everything on the Startup Tab does not *need* to run, but you can experiment by unchecking them one at a time and Restarting to see if any one of therm causes your problem.
