I have a question
I set up a net work with a linksys wireless router probably a year ago or so and it has a wireless linksys router. It is connect with two windows xp home computers and a windows 2000 and a mac and a windows 98 my question is
They (above) are all wired I am adding two window vista's with wireless built in cards, Will they hook up automatically or do I have to change the workgroup on them and if so where do I change the work group and is there anything else I would have to do to add them. 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.
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.)
Assuming that you secured the wireless (preferably with WPA or WPA2) there will be no automatic connection. I do not remember whether the Vista default is to connect to any unsecured network or only to preferred networks. I think they got wise and made the latter the default, but I'm not at all sure.
If you want them to be in the same workgroup, then you will have to change the workgroup designation unless you named the workgroup "WORKGROUP." You change the workgroup on Vista similar to the way you do on XP--through the Properties of "Computer."
Would be very grateful for help. I just bought an HP Pavilion laptop with home premium platform . and want to be able to access files from my XP professional desktop , particularly pictures and music, and vice versa. I use DSL with router modem and have excellent internt connection but am unable to set up a suitable wireless network for file sharing. Thanks in advance for your help

I have an Actiontec GT701-wg DSL modem running a wireless network. I currently have two laptops with XP sharing the Internet connection. Since the modem has an open Ethernet port in the back, I was wondering if it might be possible to plug in a networkable external hard drive and have it available to both of the laptops wirelessly.
If it is possible, what setting would be required on the laptops to enable them to see the external drive?
Attempting to install D-Link Wireless G Router DI-524 after installing Actiontec DSL GT701 modem and wireless gateway. When I type in the URL address into my web browser it opens up the installation wizard for the Actiontec modem rather than the D-Link Wizard.
Both installation wizards have the same address.
What do I need to do to install the D-Link Wireless G Router?
I have an existing wireless network on a Seimens Speadstream 6520 and I would like to add some range to cover dead spots. I also have a Linksys WRT54G-RG lying around. Can I use the WRT54G-RG as a kind of repeter or something to that effect or should I go with an actual range expander?
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
Let me start from the beginning. From what I've read and seen the best way to have a home network and Internet connection is this config. - DSL modem (mine is actiontec wireless gateway) connected to the Router (dlink dl 624) connected to a switch (dlink). I did disable the wireless portion of the dlink router but can only get Internet connection from one computer (xp pro). I can't get anything from the other computer (xp home). Plus I can't see any of the other computers from either machine. Also, I can only access the dlink router to change things and not the modem.
Sorry for the huge request...
Please don't hijack another thread to post your problem. I've already answered this in your duplicate thread.
Here is my network config.
PC A <wired> wireless 2wire gateway
Xbox 360 <wireless> wireless 2wire gateway
need to add
PC B <wireless> wireless 2wire gateway
Both PCs are running Win XP. Have gone through network wizard to add PC, both have same network, "Home" and same WEP.
I see 2wire gateway in the list of wireless connections on PC B but when I click on it to connect to that network I get an error message...
Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of availiable networks, and try to connect again
Am I missing setting a configuration?
Is there built in wireless functionality or what can I do to connect this wirelessly?
I have an existing network using a hard wire. (I believe it is a cross over.)
I also have a Belkim wireless G router that I added to the system to allow for internet access. (I have a Mac witeless laptop that accesses the web.)
I now want to add Psykiapa's Toshiba laptop to the system. It runs Vista.
Our main computer is a PC running win98SE
The seondary PC is running Win XP. Neither has a wireless card.
What do I need to do to get her connected?
hi i have a brand new laptop i need to added to my wirless network, it has detected it on the laptop yet when i click connect it says that it is "unable to connect it may longer be available please refresh and try again"

i have entered the WEP key into the laptop settings correct. i just dont know why it wont connect?
any help please?
I have an AMD 906 MHz 384 Ram desktop thats running on XPHome SP2 and a Celeron 2.6 GHz 192 MB Ram (recently installed XPHome SP2) that are networked using a Linksys DSL router. I have a couple of questions that I need help with please:
1. The network connection is not longer visible... I've tried to ping the other machine without success.
2. I suspect that the Security settings are blocking the network. How do I reset those to allow the network connections?
3. I have been given a Linksys wireless Model WAP11 that I would like to add to the system. How do I do that and how can I ensure the security on the network when using the laptop wireless?
I would setup the wireless without security first. after it works, add security settings. this page may help, http://www.chicagotech.net/wireless.htm
doesn't seem to be working. i just need to share files between the computers. it is a desktop with a d-link wireless card in it. it isn't showing any available networks to connect to, and i really don't know much else that i can try.

Okay, 1st of all I know next to nothing about Apples, but here goes. I have someone with a Linksys WRT54GC router on their network. She would like to be able to hop on with her Apple. It is running Mac OS 9.2.1 and Airport v. 1.3.1. I've not attempted to add an Apple to a network before. I did go into the area where you add networks and found the router. It saw the router, but it kept going back & forth between getting "status update" to "no status update." I'm not at that site, but if anyone has any tips on what I should be looking for/doing, I'd appreciate it. If you need to know something else about the Apple, please be specific on where to find the info as I don't know my way around them much at all. I just hunt & click. Thanks so much.
I take it i'm not the only one who knows next to nothing about Apples?
I purchased the HP Photosmart 5510 wireless printer yesterday and I have been unable to add it to my wireless network.
I have gone through the wizard setup on the printer itself and was able to find and log on to the wireless network. The printer indicates I am connected, but when I attempt to complete the software installation on the computer, it stalls during the checking network environment and does not complete. I have tried going through the add a printer process, but it hangs during the searching for network printer check. I do not have a firewall running that would prevent its detection.
I was able to add the printer using a USB cable, but I need it to be wireless and not located next to the Dell.

I want to add a wireless router to our network. We have a T1 that comes into Router that only my ISP has access to. Next inline is a Sonicwall firewall that I have setup. Sonicwall is Nat Enables, I do not use dhcp, all of my devices are statically mapped pointing towards the firewall as my gateway server. Behind my firewall are several switches connecting around 100 devices.
Couple other things, I don't care if the wireless devices connect to my network. I just want internet access for anyone that connects wireless. (mostly for iPads, etc)
I do have a free DMZ port on my Sonicwall. Is it possible to use that?
Also, would I connect the wireless router to an ethernet port coming off the switch?
I have tried several attempts and can't seam to get internet access.
Thanks in advance!
I would use a wireless access point and not another router. Give it an IP address on your LAN, set up security and you should be good to go.
Ok I Just Got a Wireless Router and after spending 7 Straight Hours trying to get it to work on my Laptop....
I realize That IE is Messed Up and Does Not Have anything In Internet Options There is no NetWorks to Connect to. Nothing what so Ever
Upon thinking "I'll just click on "Add" and that will solve my Problem" But no. I just makes some New Connection that I have no idea where its spose to be.
All I want to know is How can I add a Wireless Network to the Connections Box in the Internet Options Menu?

Situation: Everything at my company is connected on the LAN via wires. I would like to set it up so that the wireless router is on the same network as everything else so the portable devices can share the same resources on the wired connection. How can I achieve this?

Sorry- figured it out!!!
If setting the IP address to within the range enabled internet, and setting it outside the range but disabling DHCP allowed network access, I combined the two and set the IP address back to one within our current network range, but with DHCP still disabled. Bingo! Wireless connection to both the network and the net!

hello...i'm trying to add a notebook to my wireless connection. I've entered the wep key and the icon in the tray says it's "connected" and the signal strength is excellent. However, when I look at the network connection, the icon says "enabled"...not "connected." If I start my browser, it says the page is unavailable offline and yadayada. What am I doing wrong and how do I connect it to my wireless network?
I'd start by turning off WEP on the router as a test and make sure everything else is configured correctly. The most common cause of a failure to connect with WEP is a mis-matched key. Use ONLY the hex key entry, don't use the ASCII passcode option.
I am helping a friend install a wireless tp-link router to his existing network. Currently he has a modem connected to a non-wireless linksys 8-port router. I was just going to run a network cable from his linksys to the tp-link wireless router.
His linksys gives a local IP range of 1-150. Can I just give the wireless tp-link an ip of 192.168.1.151 and make sure the subnet mask is the same? then do my encryption. But is it as easy as just setting the ip and making sure the subnet mask is the same?
Thanks for your help.

I have two PC's that are hard wired into a network using a cross over cable. I do use a wireless router to access the net for a MAC.
I now want to add a laptop PC. If I add a wireless card to one of my PC's will it hook up to the network?
I'm not sure how the crossover cable enters into the mix, why aren't those machines connected to the router? Since you have a wireless router and you have a MAC connecting through it, you should be able to use it with the laptop as well.
I have a high speed cable ISP. My home is wired with cat 5 cable operating from a wired modem. I would like to put a computer in a place that isn't wired, but I would like to keep the wired connections operating. Does anybody know if you can add a wireless router to an existing wired system and how to accomplish this?
You can do this 3 ways. 1) Buy a WAP and hook it up to the existing router at any point it can even use your prexisting cat 5 wiring as a piggy back if you want it in another room closrt to your wireless PC/laptop/or periphrial you want wireless. This effectively gives you a wireless beacon on your wired network. 2) The other way you can do it is buy a wireless router and replace your wired router. 3) You can buy a wireless router and disable all router functions such as DHCP and whatnot and hook it up to your existing lan cabling using one of the internal 1-4 ports not the WAN port.
I have the following setup, which works fine:
Broadband cable comes in and connects to a cable modem. Connected to the cable modem is a wired router, which can accept 4 ethernet cables. I have 2 desktop computers connected to the router; 2 ports are vacant. These computers do not have wireless cards.
I also have a laptop, with a wireless card. I want to use the laptop throughout the house. I just inherited a D-Link DI-524 wireless router. Will the wireless router work if I connect it to one of the vacant ports on the wired router, rather than directly to the cable modem?
Recently we have added another computer to our household and decided to use a wireless router to share the internet connection. I need help figuring out how to add the printer on the main computer to be able to use it on the extension PC...any help is greatly appreciated.
Edit: Do not refer to a computer as "CPU"
i think you just have to make the printer shaerable on the network, as the internet connection sharing through the wireless router already forms a network.
You can just right click on the printer after installing in main computer, go to properties and then to sharing. . and you have everything before you. Make sure you allow the extension computer to be accessible i.e, not stopped by the firewall.
Edit: Do not refer to a computer as "CPU"
Hey everyone this is my first post on the techguy forums... I work for a small business and we have a network containing 6 locations within about 75 yards of each other and within 3 buildings. I didn't do any of the networking except hooking up 1 vista computer ot the current network. I just got dragged into the equation because it's what I'm in school for. Right now there is 2 vista OS and 4 XP OS I believe. I have the network all hooked up, but I can't seem to transfer any files between computers... The two computers I am trying to transfer is XP and a Vista. The error message comes up as
"Cannot copy (whatever the file name is): Access Denied
Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."
This is where I want to start on this problem. Thanks all!
Almighty forum, I come in need of help!
I'm a student in Sixth Form, and it's my job to organise the theatre tech, and we're trying to get our own wireless network for our kit.
We have a wireless router, (Dlink DI-524, a couple of years old, and all the cables), and I have a basic knowledge of networking, such as DHCP servers and so on, but I don't know how to set it up. We have a working LAN port, so access isn't a problem. And we know the server address. As much as we'd like the IT dept. to do it, or to at least tell us how, they're unbelievably lazy and won't do either.
So, could someone offer some help and instruction for me? If any more info is needed, I'll get it.
Thanks in advance!
do you have there permission (IT dept) to do this
put a PC onto the working LAN port and post an ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.
If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply
Note: you will see entries named Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: we dont need to see that information - JUST the infomation above those entries
We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.
This should also work for windows 8
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):
In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:
Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.
ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt
It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.
Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Does anyone know if it is possible to add a wireless add on to a 4 port cable/dsl gateway router so that I can access the internet on my laptop through wireless connection using my existing network setup (wired). It is a Belkin gateway router. Hope someone can advise. Thanks.
You might check the company to see if they have an add-on but more than likely you have to buy a modem with a wireless gateway or go buy a wireless access point. What is the model of the modem?

I managed to add an access point wireless router. I have 5 sales people that like to be able to email to costumer. Now, I can not seems to get those laptops to see the servers? they have access to the internet but I am not sure what I am suppose to do to set them up to see the network.
Is it the setting on the wireless router or because I set it up as access point? as you can already notice I am not too familiar with networking....!
Anyhow I have a Netgear WGT624v3 again I configured it as an access point they can surf the internet just fine.. BUT how can I do so they have access to out wire network??
Any help would be appreciated...
We bought a new wireless router for our home network a D-link DIR- I haven t had any trouble with it so far I had issues connecting my ps but I ve since figured it out The only problem I ve had is connecting an older desktop of mine wirelessly It uses windows adding network pc to older Solved: trouble wireless XP and it is able to find and connect to the network but for some reason even though it says it s connected it doesn t work When I check the network status it shows Solved: trouble adding older pc to wireless network that it s not receiving any information well if it does it s at a ratio of for the send receive My only guesses as to why it s not actually working which are likely to be wayyyy off are that A the data encryption key is set to WEP on my computer but the router is set to something like WPA or something like that Please don t quiz me on what that means B I ve heard that I might need to update the firmware for the router but then why would every other wireless device in my house work Thanks in advance for any suggestions nbsp
I have an existing network, all Dell with Netgear router working fine, file sharing printer sharing etc great. New (Dell) laptop on Vista cannot see other computers, their files or the printer which is connected to one of the XP systems. Vista machine shows as connected to the router and I have internet on the Vista machine. All PC's are on the same workgroup. Dell says it's not a Vista problem (haha) and I know enough to know I need help with this. BTW, it's my wife's new laptop so if you're married you understand how anxious I am to fix this.

Did you try waiting a while , then rebooting, to see if the laptop could 'see' the other computers? Sometimes it can take a while before the router finally 'wakes up' and realizes there's another computer out there.
As for the printer, did you install the drivers included in Vista on the new laptop (don't use the disc that came with the printer unless it's a newer one that is Vista compatible). Just went through this with my new computer over the weekend.
I have a 3 XP PC network. I want to add a Vista pc. The linksys wireless network is secure. I cannot get the Vista pc to see the XP PC network and vice versa. I need to share files and printers just like when I took off the computer I'm replacing. I gave the vista pc my workgroug name and it says its connected. Stepping back, When I first fired up the vista it did connect through the router straight to the internet. It just won't recognize the network at the router. i've tried all the help stuff. It supposed to be set-up corretly.

I recently purchased an Xbox live for my son to use. We have two newer Dell computers on our network and sharing a cable connection. How do I add the Wireless G Linksys Game adapter? I put it to my son's computer in his room-hooked to his RJ-45 on his computer console. When I go back to my computer to set it up, it cannot be found. The main cable connection is on my computer as is the Linksys G woreless router. He already has an antenna-G device hooked to his computer to share the broadband. What am I doing wrong?
I've seen a number of posts about this, so I wondered if any of you would find this paper useful. Have a read and post what you think about it. (I am not the author...)
I think this is not exactly what most people are interested in but for me personally it's a very useful paper since we have to provide wireless access to people attending training courses etc and it's always a pain to arrange it so our internal network doesn't get flooded by infected Windows laptops.
Lots of spelling/word glitches in the paper..
I'm new to Vista and am having trouble adding my network printer to a Toshiba laptop I recently purchased that runs Vista Home Basic. My old laptop was on Windows XP as the desktop that is "home" for the printer. I've checked to make sure the Vista laptop is in the same workgroup but no matter what I do I'm unable to "see" the printer on the network map. Any suggestions?
Did you share the printer on the XP PC?
Check the windows firewall on the XP PC?
I am having difficulties added a vista os laptop to my current Win2K / XP network.
The laptop shows up on my 2Wire router home network (both LAN and Wireless) and in Computer Near Me on my Win2K PC. However I cant access the network from the Vista laptop. I cant connect to, or locate the network printers, on the other two PC's. I also cant access any shared folders i have set up on the other two PC's.
I have configured Zone Alarm on the Win2K to trust the wireless and LAN IP addresses.
The laptop and two PC's are in a MSHOME workgroup.
What am i doing wrong.
Take a look at PC Chuck's Windows XP And Vista On The LAN Together. Also, the information in File and Printer Sharing in Windows Vista may help you.
Have an existing XP network with a Linksys 5 port workgroup hub. Puled the RJ-45 out of a working station and plugged it into the RJ-45 jack on the Vista Notebook.
The Vista notebook sees the hub, and can get internet connection through the XP desktop on the network, but neither computer can see the other.
A message tells me that IPv4 connectivity is enabled, but that IPv6 connectivity is limited.
Both computers are sharing everything, and both users have accounts set up on both computers, with password protected sharing on.
Why can't either computer see the other?

Don t know much about Home Networks but my brother-in-law claims to have had one set up for him Have been troubleshooting some other stuff for him via CrossLoop and he asked me to set up printer sharing for his wireless laptop so he could use the printer connected to his Desktop As best I can tell his quot home network quot looks like this The laptop Network Home basics wireless connects to the Internet via his Linksys router which serves as a wireless access point and also as the Ethernet cable router for his Desktop don t know if I m getting the terminology correct here I followed the excellent screenshot Home Network basics instructions on the lifehacker site at http lifehacker com software step-by-step share-a-printer-on-your-home-network- php but I got as far as Step and found no listing And when I looked on his Desktop quot Network Neighborhood Home Network basics quot I DIDN T see his laptop computer name listed in fact I didn t see ANYTHING listed If the laptop were networked with the Desktop it should have been listed right If it was then printer sharing could have been enabled right So it looks like he merely has the router as a connection point for both computers SEPARATELY As I understand it the quot Network Setup Wizard quot has to be used to configure both machines for a home network Having the connections as my illustration shows above is certainly necessary but these connections alone are not sufficient by themselves to quot make quot a home network In addition to the hardware connections there needs to be some Windows software configuration Is that correct or am I way off track here BTW he has XP nbsp

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.

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
With new and faster modems available, it is a waste of money to get a 300mb speed when the 150mb speed is still overkill, so is my belief. Can someone please confirm the following as true or false:
1) No matter how fast your modem/router is, your limited to the ISP connection speed.
2) If the modem/router has a usb storage deviced attached, then I can see the 150mb or 300mb speeds being used to connect to a users device. Is that correct?
3) if I'm accessing the internet with more than one device at a time?
Say, a laptop hardwired + an iPad 2 + iTouch will divide the download speed proportionally?
Thanks for any thoughts on this,
1) You only get the bandwidth you pay for and most ISP supply the router/modem.
I'm trying to figure out the best way to get up to speed in understanding how to set up Ubuntu thru VMWare on my Windows XP Home Edition laptop. Does anybody have any pointers on where to begin?
Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again.

Whenever I search in W7, I want to have the ability to open found folders in a new window. If I r-click, that option is not there. Is there a way to add this to W7?
Also: When I go to 'open file location', the file's folder opens in the same window - highly annoying. In Vista, it opens in a new window. Anyway to change this behvior in W7 to act like Vista, so the file opens in a new window?
assume this option was there on your windows 7 earlier? did you make any changes to your computer recently?http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/214561-adding-open-new-window-search-results-opening-new-window.html

I have a network here at work that is using an NT4.0 server. I have a computer that is running Windows 2000 pro that needs to logon to the domain through a wireless connection (running in a trailer in the parking lot). I can get everything to connect and work if I log into the workstation itself, however if I try to log onto the domain I get an error message indicating that the domain is not available. I know that XP has the ability to initialize the wireless connection prior to login but I can't find anyway to do this with W2K. I am using a Netgear WG121 USB (G) adapter with a Netgear WG602 access point. I have WEP turned on in the open mode.

I've tried everything to get it back. In my network connections, it only shows my local area connection. I can't connect to a wireless network, and my wifi light on my keyboard isn't even lit.
I don't have any switches or buttons on my keyboard either that would allow me to enable or disable wireless internet.
I do have a wireless card built into my computer, and I have been able to connect to wireless networks for the three years that I've owned this laptop. It basically just stopped working a few weeks ago.
By the way, it's Windows XP. Anyone have any idea how to get my Wifi back?

ok so this problem has been going on for awhile now but has gotten worse somehow...
before i could not access my vista computer upstairs from my xp computer downstairs.
i've made sure the settings are what they should be on the vista computer since i can easily access my xp computer from the vista computer.

I will move your post to a more appropriate forum for help with your problem. Welcome to BC!
I a have a BELKIN Wireless G Plus MIMO router:
Can i connect and file/printer-share btwn 3 laptops with 3 different OS?
One has XP SP2, one has XP Pro XP2, and one (will have) Vista.
I'm trying to set up a wireless network at home. I have my main computer with Windows XP installed on it, which is connected directly to the router and my laptop.
My laptop can already access internet through the router. I want these two computers to share files now.
I've gone through the set up process of the wireless network from the XP, where I have uploaded files on the USB key and plugged it into the laptop. After restarting, I can see all the devices and files from my laptop, but I don't see shared filed on the laptop from the main PC. What could be the problem?
Probable cause is a 3rd party firewall (internet security). Assuming you turned on file sharing on the laptop.
I have 7 computers in my home network. It is a mixed setting, with some laptops (4), some desktops (3): some wired (2) into the router, some on wireless (5), and some with Windows XP (5) and some with Vista (2).
All of this works generally fine, except for one thing: I have one Vista laptop on wireless, and the transfer speed beyween it and the rest of the network is hopelessly slow. Internet access is fine, only transfering files inside the network is MUCH slower than between the XP machines. Also, if I wire the Vista machine, the transfer speed is fine. I also tried with my regular Vista desktop, which normally is wired, but now temporarily on wireless, and the exact same thing happens.
Can anyone explain this?
All help much appreciated.
hmm, have you checked firewall settings or anything that could mess with it like that? i can't think of what the problem would be especially if the connection is there(just slow)...
When you test this is it the only pc connected to the network(e.g. is there anything else hogging network attention)... and are there any p2p based applications? (e.g. 4oD/bbc's player?) because i've heard of problems with these...
I guess that Vista is stumping me. I have a wireless network with Lynksys router. My desktop with XP is connected to the router and my laptop with Vista is set up with wireless network. The two computers have different IP addresses, yet I can't ping them? I can see all the shared files from the desktop on the laptop, but what I want to do is share my pictures and files from my laptop to my desktop. The desktop acknowledges the laptop on the workgroup directory, but I cannot see any laptop files. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

this is the first time ive ever used vistahttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/160932/cant-get-vista-wireless-network-to-work/
I went out and bought a new laptop yesterday that is wireless enabled so i can use it anywhere in the house. I plugged in my network cable and everything ran fine, not 1 problem! Except when i tried to connect wirelessly i was told that the network settings in XP were incompatible!
I have tried all the different pop down menus of available network jargon and stil no luck!
Does anyone know how i get around this, or have any advise?
Ok, so i decided to install a copy of vista RC1. But anyways, I am using a DLink DWL-G122 and I have installed the drivers from my disc, all is working correctly (except the DLink connection manager) But at least the drivers are. But when I go to connect to my network it fails. I have tried wep, wpa, no security. It fails on everyone, I have 3 other computers connected wirelessly, any suggestions? Thnx in advanced
I have a linksys wireless N router and a linksys wireless N adapter model WMP300N and its HORRIBLE..keeps disconnecting from the network and its only 2 rooms away..i need a new adapter can anyone help me out please?!
Maybe you should investigate why that adapter is having a problem, it could be driver issues, wireless interference, etc. That adapter has a decent reputation, so I'd try to track down the source of the issue before just buying a different adapter. I think you're jumping the gun here on replacement.
I have dell I6400 with vista basic. I also am a computer tech, but don't have enough vista training to figure out this problem. I use my machine just for the MS streets and trips with GPS, since I drive around all day fixing computers. If I have the wireless turned on during the day, it will pick up a wireless network. But, it won't release it when I hit refresh. When I get home, the only way to see my wireless home network is to reboot the machine. I am not currently using any security until I fix this issue, just to eliminate that as an issue. Also, clicking refresh does nothing. Is there a setting that locks in the first available wireless network that vista finds, and won't release it until reboot? Thanks.
You could try
open the command promt and type
netsh wlan disconnect 1 (substitute 1 for the name of the wireless network you cant diconnect from)
Or type at the command promt
netsh wlan connect 2 (substitute 2 for the name of your home wireless lan)
If it works this way you could make a batch file that would save you having to type this every time you get home. Simply create a new text document rename it to something like conenctathome.bat (make sure the extension is changing to .bat from .txt)
Add this line to the text document
netsh wlan connect 2 (again substitute the 2 for the name of your wirless lan)
Save the file and double click it to execute the connect command when ya get home.
This is just a work around though and may or may not work.
There are plenty of other netsh wlan commands that might do the trick for you.
At a command prompt type netsh wlan ?
This will give you a list of commands that can be executed.
Try a few out, I'm not familiar with all of them unfortuantely. could be something to do with you rprofiles though likely its a driver issue, possibly ACPI.

You also cannot connect by ethernet?
I'm having trouble understanding why anybody would buy a computer with Vista installed. Is this a used computer? If so, is the OS also pre-used or is it a fresh install?
The next screen I click "Enter/Select additional log on information" but this brings up a user name/ password/ login domain screen... Click to expand...
I'm struggling with understanding where this is coming from. Not a problem with the way you described things; I just don't remember ever running across that when I had Vista.
Try disabling encryption on the router and see if you can get a connection that way.
Weird problem. I hooked up a linksys device to one of my laptop to change settings on it. Now that I have unhooked it. For some reason, there is no longer a network tab under the properties of my wireless card! I have enabled the wired and wlan config in services but it still will not come back! I'm trying to configure a wireless connection with the internal wireless card like I normally do. The tab is just no longer there! I have no idea why and I'm lost.
Any ideas? Remember this is Vista there is no wireless zero configuration just the wired and wlan config.

Originally set up Broadband on a desktop using the AOL broadband drivers disc and BT Voyager Then an ex-tenant set up a wireless network with a D-Link G T Wireless Modem Router took the BT Voyager Broadband Modem out of the equation and hard-wired the D-Link directly into the desktop This was for our wireless laptops Last year I go rid of the Wireless / Vista Windows Network desktop but the Laptop continued to work as Windows Vista / Wireless Network per norm perhaps I should have loaded the AOL Broadband drivers onto the laptop Then last week my laptop broke and I have replaced it with a new one which has Windows Vista / Wireless Network Windows Vista Home Premium I could get straight onto Windows Vista / Wireless Network the wireless network at my parents isp Toucan but I can t get a wireless connection on mine It was picking up the G T as an Unnamed Network so I typed in G T followed by the security password but to no avail I was however able to hard-wire into the wireless modem and got a connection one evening But now even when doing that it is saying it is connected but Local Area Only and the explorer window crashes Perhaps I need to load upgraded AOL drivers and use and AOL Wireless Modem Router nbsp
When you are connected via ethernet to the modem/router can you actually communicate with it? If so, login to it and make sure the SSID broadcast is enabled, and look in the WAN (Internet) section to see what you can learn. In that section should be all the stuff you need for connecting to AOL.
All of sudden, Vista won't save my wireless network auto log on.
After every boot, I have to choose my wireless network despite checking "Save this network" and "Start this connection automatically."
This happened seemingly out of nowhere after months of being able to connect automatically. Any kind soul know of a fix? Thanks.
May be that this is rather an OS problem and should'ave been posted in the Vista forum.
In my house I have an airport extreme and then a dsl modem which has wireless. I've always connected to the modem wirelessly as it is faster than using the airport. However after restarting the modem vista will no longer connect to it even though it is working. It will however connect to the airport which is strange as the airport is connected to the modem, so I do know the internet is working. When I diagnose the problem it tells me it's a unknown error. Any help in trying to get connected again to the modem would be a great help. Thankshttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/vista-wont-connect-to-wireless-network-240539.html
I have a new PC with Vista Premium.
I have a RTL8187B Wireless USB Dongle that detects and connects to my network.
I can save the profile for my WEP key in the connection wizard that comes on the CD or in windows Wireless connection manager but when I reset both have disappeared.
What am I missing - I have a PC running XP and have set up my wireless network with out problems.
Signal strength is 60-80% and link quality is about 80%
The Dongle box says Vista compatible.
under Manage Wireless networks the net work is set to connect automatically - but after restart the network profile doesn't even exist anymore.
Any ideas - Everytime I reboot I have to set up my wireless network again.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/vista-wont-save-my-wireless-network-181518.html
I have purchased a new Dell laptop with Vista loaded. I am trying to connect this to my existing wireless network where I already have 3 XP laptops connected. I am able to find my network and connect but only have limited access and am not able to connect to the internet. When I look at the connection details, the ip information is not populating. I have also tried to connect directly to obtain the IP addresses but this has not worked. I have tried to manually enter the gateway, subnet IPs but can only obtain limited access. My wireless network is connected to a cable modem and is a secured network. Thank you.
