Solved: No "Sharing" tab in wireless network connection properties

Q: Solved: No "Sharing" tab in wireless network connection properties

I'm trying to connect my Xbox 360 to my laptop, using Vista, and there is no "sharing"d tab to allow ICS, so It always fails the IP address test. I've tried every site and googled it multiple times but still haven't gotten a solution.

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.

I am trying to configure a home network to share printers and files, but for some reason one of my two computers cannot see the other. My laptop cannot see my desktop when I go to "Network" but it can see my other wireless devices. My desktop can see everything on the network, including the laptop. I have checked all the firewalls, including McAfee settings.

One thing that I found to be strange was that in Network Properties for my wireless network, the desktop shows "networking" AND "sharing" tabs, but the laptop is missing the "sharing" tab. I think that this might be the problem.

Also, I forgot to mention that the desktop can ping the laptop, but the laptop will not ping the desktop.

Thank you for the help

Hello everyone how are you!

I have a question, actually I'm development a application for sharing internet connection. I'm using "Wireless Hosted Network and Internet Connection Sharing" that it's in https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd815252%28v=vs.85%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396


I want change default IP Address range and I have read that these settings it's in next address:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters.

My question is, How I can restart or update the "Internet Connection Shraring" or "Wireless Hosted Network" after I change the IP Address range for that assign IP Address different to default.

Thank you!

Running XP on 2 computers. Have them connected by a router. I set the router IP to 192.168.3.1 Everything connects great! When I connect to a wireless network, it all connects, but doesn't work ("connection timed out" or "Page not found" errors. The wire connection shows an IP of 192.168.2.1. If I disable my Local Area Network, the internet connects perfectly. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I CAN USE MY LOCAL AREA NETWORK AND THE WIRELESS CONNECTION AT THE SAME TIME! Frustrating to the max! Any network specialists out there who can tell me how to fix this? Thanks!!!

You should know that x.x.2.1 is incorrect. For the router address shown, all devices that connect to it *must* be 192.168.3.x where x > 1 and < 255.

I would suspect that you have some static configuration data in the devices.

You want your router to offer DHCP in the range 2->32 (that's more than enough) and
you want all systems to use DHCP for the IP address and DNS settings.

Remove anything in the Alternative Configurations

Hello all. I'm running Windows 7 professional on an HP 4320s probook. I recently uninstalled some of the HP programs because I never used them (sorry can't remember which) and now I cant connect to the internet. I get the error message in the thread's title.
I've tried ipconfig/release and the fix that has netsh ip textlog in it and i've also disabled the IP helper. None of these have worked. I looked for webroot in services.msc but couldnt find it so i don't think that's the problem either.
Any ideas?

Hello Guys and Girls,

My wireless internet connections are currently set to a manually configured status, but this means I am having problems connecting to other wireless connections with free (ie unsecured) connections. I have tried going to properties and ticking the "Let Windows configure my wireless network settings", but I get a dialogue box coming up telling me that not all of my changes have been made.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

A:Solved: Changing wireless connection status from "Manually Configured" back to "Automatic"

Why don't we start with the make/model of the wireless router in use, as well as the wireless adapter or laptop brand. Also, what version and patch level of Windows do you use?

If you have XP-SP2, you can set the machine back to installation defaults using the following procedure.

Hi,

I am connected to a public wifi in my building thru built-in adapter of my laptop. I am running Windows 7 Home Basic. The connection allows only one device to run on one login name. I need to share this connection with my other device by turning my laptop into hotspot or thru ethernet. I have tried using Virtual Wifi Miniport and Connectify. I have tried LAN also. But I encounter the same problem in all the cases. As soon as I turn on internet sharing thru the properties of my public wifi connection, the Virtual Wifi or the LAN turn "Unidentified" and there is no internet on my other device. I even tried using a usb wifi adapter to connect to public wifi and sharing the internet over my laptop's adapter and vice versa but to no avail.

Please help...

Call tech support for the public Wi-Fi and see if they have made ICS unusable to prevent people from trying to circumvent their restriction. Whether they have or not we will not help. Closing.

Hello Jayrrus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend that you use Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to scan your system with at boot to help make sure that your system is malware free first.

Afterwards, you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had these issues to see if that may be able to fix them.

Hope this helps,

A:Unable to connect to wireless network. "Internet connection is too slow."

if the router is working with a cable connection, then its unlikely to be the modem , unless thats also a router and you are using it for DHCP

you say the modem is connected by cable to the router
and any device connected to the router by cable works perfectly - is that correct

on the old router - have you removed the wireless security and see if you can connect ?

carried out a full power cycle - see below

also it would be worth making a note of the router configuration and do a factory reset on the router and re setup and try again

with a PC connected by a cable direct to the modem can we see an ipconfig /all
now do a power cycle and connect the router

Hi all, so I have gotten the above message when trying to connect to my wireless, and it's saying I have limited access to the connection. I know it's not a router/modem issue as all other computers in the house are connecting without trouble. This all happened after I attempted to uninstall "Adaware" which I had installed to find and remove a nasty keylogger. Halfway through uninstalling I got a blue screen of death, and when I rebooted, I couldn't connected to the wireless. Anyone know of a potential solution?

It's most likely an indication of some issue with the hardware in the network. My guess is you're having a log of collisions on the Ethernet link.

my internet has previously worked without any problems. two days ago, it said i was connected with limited connectivity. i tried disabling/enabling my wireless, unplugging the wireless router, and running troubleshoot. the computer said that my wireless network connection doesnt have a valid IP configuration. neither of my roomates had this issue (they can still get to the internet fine). i was worried that it was something with my internet, so i went to a friends house and it worked there. i then ran system restore to a period when internet worked, thinking it could have been a bad update, but still no change. i went into my IP address configuration, and it is all set to automatically find. not sure where to go from here. any help?

i have an asus computer, windows 7 ultimate (32bit).

A:"Wireless network connection" doesnt have a valid IP configuration...

If you can type ipconfig/all into an Elevated Command Prompt then post a screen shot of the results it would be very helpful.

It sounds like the wireless profile for your home connection was somehow corrupted or changed.

You can usually straighten that out by going into the Wireless Connection Manager in the Network and Sharing Center and making sure that the settings match the ones in your router.

The Bonjour service which installs with iTunes and Adobe Photo shop is also famous for causing this problem.

To fix ...
Run MsConfig

Under the Services tab uncheck the service called "##Id_String1.6844[... and then a bunch of numbers]" by Apple

Reboot and problem solved

To delete the Bonjour service.
1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Bonjour
2. Rename the mdnsNSP.dll file in that folder to mdnsNSP.old

I was connected to my neighbors wireless network via Linksys for several months, but after he had it shut off and reconnected they gave him a different IP address, ID and password. I have all the passwords and the signal shows up, but it is continually "aquiring a network address". Does he have to change something in his settings to allow access once again?

A:Wireless connection "acquiring network address" continually

Let's give this a shot, practicing our ipconfig and netsh commands...

Open an elevated command prompt.

netsh winsock reset catalog

netsh int ip reset reset.log

ipconfig /release (be patient)

ipconfig /renew (be patient)

ipconfig /all

should show your ip address. Hopefull this will work for you.

Hi All,

Hoping to get some direction or help here...

I have two Toshiba laptops, both have inbuilt WiFi connections.
I have a Satellite P20 with Win XP and a Satellite P100 with Vista.
I connect to a Cable Modem through a Buffalo Wireless Access Point running WEP and with SSID Broadcast On.

The P20 (XP) unit connects with no problems.
The P100 (Vista) intermittently drops to "Limited Connectivity". Sometimes switching the WiFi card off and on, using the external switch, will return the connection, as will Disabling/Enabling the card. But, in each case, the connection normally lasts just a few minutes before dropping again.

I have reset the Modem, and the Wireless Access Point, but with no improvement.

Any ideas?

the laptop I am typing this from wi-fi works, I have a Gateway MX6920 that originally had Windows XP on it, I wiped that and installed Windows 7. and have very few installed programs on it. Openoffice, firefox, teamviewer, Gimp, and a steam game is all that's on it (and an Antivirus) but it will no longer connect to my wi-fi, it used to but now doesn't. I have 'limited access' and the troubleshooter says "Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. how do I fix?

So, are you saying when running XP the wi-fi and internet connection was working but has never worked the same under W7 ? Or.... it has worked since you changed to W7 but now for some reason it does not ?

Hello mystic, and welcome to Sevenforums!

First, do you have the latest driver installed for it? I don't know what version of windows you have so here is the general link to the drivers: Samsung - you will need the wireless driver(s). Uninstall your current wireless driver before installing the new one, which means you will need to download the new one first or use a LAN cable to have an internet connection to download the driver.

Here is an internet troubleshooting guide you might be able to use: Internet Troubleshooting Guide

However, it sounds like this computer works at home, just not at the hospitol, so it may be some kind of incompatability or any number of reasons. Make sure you have all windows updates installed as that can sometimes help such issues.

It can't stay connected without switching to "identifying..." for minutes at a time and it is so frustrating. I constantly try the troubleshooting and it usually just tells me that there is something wrong with the router but obviously not if all the other computers work. Just recently I noticed it said "Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration.


Is that the reasoning behind all my problems?

Why can my computer connect to a public network but not my home network

What does that mean and how can I fix it? ?


Actually the information that you've received from the trouble shooter is probably more accurate, then you give it credit for. I suspect you will need to look into a firmware update for your router and see if that might resolve your issue.

It may help to reset the N900 Netgear router using the reset button on the side of the router. It's fairly typical for the wireless to go out while the wired connection will keep on working.

It sometimes requires a 30-30-30 reset to fix the router.

Somehow I've managed to do something that prevents me from entering the Local Area Connection Properties window. When I do I get a message, "The controls on this property sheet are disabled because one or more other property sheets are already open. To use these controls, close all these sheets and reopen this one."
Who ever hear of property sheets? At this moment I can't access the internet due to (I think) an impoperly set component in the Local Area Connections window. Thanks, I think, to McAfee putting a Firewall component in there.

Puzzled and Frustrated.
 

A:"Property Sheets" in Local Area Connection Properties

When you right-click on an object, i.e. Local Network Connection, and select Properties, it opens the Propertiy Sheet for that object. You may be correct that the firewall has controll of the properties for the NIC and therefore the system won't open the properties again until the first instance is closed. Try opening your services from the Computer Management MMC and stop the McAfee services relating to the firewall. See if you can then see the properties of the network connection. If so, you have found the culprit. What to do about it as it will probably take control again when the services are restarted, I don't know as I don't use McAfee's firewall. If you can remove it, Agnitum has a free firewall that works very well. I have satelite connection and have not had an issue with either doing what I want or getting hacked.

Hello all - I just purchased a Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R motherboard, which replaced my ASUS P5Q that died.

After I loaded all of the drivers (using Vista x64), the first thing I noticed was my LAN connection speed was signifcantly slower than on the ASUS. So I started poking around in the Realtek "advanced configuration" properties. I changed one item:

1) Flow control - from "enabled" to "disabled"

After making the change my speed jumped significantly. However, that brought me to the question of if I need to change any of the other settings? Are there settings to be made for ultimate LAN performance?

Hey, I am really hoping someone can help me solve this problem, it's driving me up the wall!
When I started using my computer this morning everything was fine, and then "no network access" kept appearing, along with "limited connection/connectivity". I would troubleshoot the problem, but then at the end of the troubleshoot it would freeze, and my screen went black, so I had to turn my computer off and then on again. This problem has persisted throughout the day, I've googled it but nothing really the same as this has turned up .. if someone could please please help me, I'd really appreciate it!

A:"No Network Access" and "Limited Connection/Connectivity" ?

Hi Caoimhe123

My name is Riyazuddin and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell

If its a wired connection - I suggest you to try using a different ethernet cable and check,
If its a wireless connection - Try to get to the router as close as possible and check,

Please specify the type of connection, model of the router, OS and the wireless card your using and reply back

Regards
Riyazuddin M

We have a Belkin router hooked up to our desktop and cable modem, and two laptops using that wireless connection. As of tonight, all our computers are failing to make this connection. I'm online now thanks to an unsecured connection I was able to hook into.

The icon in the lower right of the screen tells us, "Signal Strength: Excellent; Status: Connected." What could possibly be going wrong?

This isn't a problem with Wireless Zero Configuration, incidentally; my wife had that problem in the past, but that isn't it. Our three computers all insist we're connected just fine, yet no websites will come up on any of them.

Any theories? How could I even know where to begin?

Thanks.

Let's just try a stack repair to see if that helps.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

I'm not sure if it's actually happening, but is there any way I can find out? The reason I'm asking, is because when I click "view wireless networks", there's 3 that show up.. Mine is on top, and there's 1 on the bottom that has a lock next to it.. Mine however, has no lock - so I'd imagine that anyone in the vicinity could be stealing my connection, and I'd like to know if there's any way of finding out..

Now what has to be done to "lock" my network? I imagine that I can't do it from my computer [that's receiving the wireless signal].. It would have to be done from the computer w/ the router sending the signal - right? Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Hi, I'm new here in hope of finding some help.

I was helping a friend remove some malware from her laptop and when it was all done I couldn't seem to connect to the internet. I try to connect it using a ethernet cable, a modem and a router, we have 2 other computers in the house that works fine and the laptop would connect to internet before when it was infected, so I doubt it is a router issue. It keeps saying "Identifying" and when I tried connecting to a neighbours internet (using wireless) it was stuck on "Local only"..

I can not connect to the internet on that laptop so I'm using my own to ask for your help.

I'm pretty sure it's not a router issue. Please help, the laptop is working very good now, it's just this issue left. Thanks in advace guys.

I put in the wireless software, typed in the correct ID and password, and it says I'm connected, but I'm not, and the network icon on the taskbar is stuck on "acquiring network address".

The wired computer is working fine, so there's definitely no problem there.

I tried disconnecting and reconnecting the adapter, but that didn't do anything.

Tried restarted the computer. That didn't do anything, either.

What's the problem?

I'm not sure if this will help any, but just so you know, I recently reinstalled Windows on this computer. Not sure if that's relevant or not.

I don't know if this is the right place, but I seriously need some help.
I've got an IP that changes every time my "gateway" (router) is reset.

First of all, I'm using windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. AND IIS. (Internet information services) or something like that..

It's really annoying, because my IP is also a website.

People can access the IP as a site, but when it changes, the old one goes off.
It gets really frustrating! I've tried manually entering it on the gateway, but my gateway just stops working and I have no internet access.

I tried entering it manually on Windows, but it will disable my internet but allow me to access the site from the old IP.

So I have to keep it on "Obtain an IP address automatically"

Please help! I've been on this all day.

Your router gets its "outside" IP from the ISP so that you cant set manually. I assume the website is using that one, correct?

The inside IP's can be manually set but that will only work from the internal lan. Is that what you want to do?

After many good days my particular mini laptop can't "see" our wireless network. The rest of house and numerous computers are fine. Also, the mini can work fine via an ethernet cable.

I think I may have messed something up and I will try what seems reasonable before going through another Reformatting with windows......Firewall is off so that shouldn't be blocking.

Any thoughts. Again, I know the router is fine, the signal is fine but for some reason the dumb thing doesnt seem our signal as "available".

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I've been using my laptop to connect my Xbox 360 to Xbox Live for some time now via ICS. Recently Live stopped working and I wanted to uncheck and then recheck the box that "allows sharing" under your wireless connection properties. But now when I do that, I get the error mentioned in the title:
"An Error Occured while Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled (null)"

Does anyone know what is causing this and/or how to fix it? I'm running Windows 7.

A:"An Error Occured while Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled (null)"

I realize its been a couple months hopefully you have resolved this but if someone else is having this problem then here is a possible solution... If you have windows firewall disabled through another service try re-enabling it, worked for me.

Hi, I need to find a fix for this issue I have with a change in Windows 8. I am running Windows 8 Pro and normally (in windows 7 and older) when I Right click on a folder, the default option for properties is "r". Nice and quick and next to my
left hand which rests on the left side of the keyboard. Now it has changed to "o" and not only that, there are 2 options for "o". Open and Properties. Very frustrating and not very easy to get around. Any way of getting around this whether
it be alternative software or reg hack or something... anything. Itsvery annoying.
Cheers

A:Right Click on folder and select "R" for Properties has changed to "O"

Well it looks like the US version oif the upgrade iso/cd is the version that has the r has properties. UK version is O which really doesnt make sense as open is O aswell so you have to press it twice then enter. I like my keyboard shortcuts so US version
is. Problem solved. language to install must read US (English) on the install screen.
Prolem solved
cheers all for your assistance.

I also have a network sharing service problem -

Vista displays, occasion (and I havent worked out WHAT occasions yet):

"windows media player network sharing service stopped working and was closed" - followed by some bulls?$t about windows informing me of a solution when it becomes available

This pop up appears relentlessly - about once every 30 seconds, and i can see the system performance hitting 100% CPU for 5 seconds or so each time it does.


I did what is suggested on here - ie disable the service - and it STILL comes up with the eror. Any ideas????

A:"windows media player network sharing service stopped working and was closed"

As an addendum - I think this happens when I'm doing any type of install - e.g. windows update, service pack, etc

I have a Belkin F5D7230-4 that is connected to my desktop via the USB cable
and to a laptop via wireless.

Can I share files and printers this way?
 

A:Belkin F5D7230-4 --- "usb network" --- printer sharing...

Yes.
I don't understand the USB connection. Is this an ethernet -USB adapter?
You'd be better off with a NIC, if that's the case. Cheap and easy to install.
Use the network wizard to set up a network on both PCs, enable file and printer sharing.
Use the add printer wizard to add the printer to the other PC.

I am trying to discern if my Intel Bluetooth device is not really correctly installed yet.
This is on a Zenbook UX305FA - has Intel WIFI + Bluetooth.
Would not pair with anything so I turned off the WIFI, uninstalled Bluetooth device and Driver [tickbox checked].
Downloaded the latest Bluetooth Device driver package from ASUS. Installed - all appeared well.

But when Bluetooth is ON [taskbar, open properties, scans .... or appears to be scanning] it still shows "Not Connected".
I finally was able to get it paired with a bluetooth speaker I have and it STILL shows "Not Connected".

anyone run across this or is it a peculiarity associated with this system?

I wondering if it is possible to share an internet connection on a laptop that is using these new wireless go anywhere usb sticks.
A customer who is out of range from any high speed internet providers has purchase a USB stick device (Cell phone) connection. He has other computers and wants to set up an wireless network to share the internet signal.

Any thoughts - is this even possible.
I thought of using internet connection sharing to a wireless router.
 

A:Sharing internet with wireless "G" stick

You can use ICS and connect a wireless router as an access point, a bit cleaner. Here's the cookbook.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) 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, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

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).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

The sheet displayed is Themes. The selected theme is Windows XP.

If I change the theme and click Apply, the tabs all appear. But if I close & re-open the Display Properties, I'm back to Themes with no tabs.

There is a similar post here already, but no one has posted any solutions.

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?
