Q: Win7 Wireless and Wired issues

Have Belkin wireless/wired DSL router. DSL Router to a Linksys switch to my wired ethernet system (prewired in my home as being built). PC #1 (Win7 Home Premioum 32) is hard wired to switch. PC#2 is in my office where I have a Netgear wireless router that has the PC#2 (Win7 Ultimate 64) and my Canon networked laser printer attached. Setup Homegroup in both.. cannot see PC to PC or share printer.

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

Let me see if I understand, your home is pre-wired with ethernet (very nice) It seems that you would only need the one wired/wireless router, with both PC's connected. Why are you using a switch and second router?

I am running Windows 7 as my primary OS via wireless on my laptop, and I have a server pc setup and wired to my router which is running DD-WRT.

In my router config I see both computers but I can't see either on my network, and I haven't the slightest clue why. Could anyone out there help me?

A:Win7 Wireless PC Doesnt See Wired XP on Network

Ok, I tried to ping from my Win7 PC to the xp pc via cmd prompt and it said destination host is unreachable.... I really need to get this server up and running. Anyone have any ideas? They both are on the same workgroup, etc... and I disable ipv6 on my network adapter.

Just got new house, and putting together a new win7 homegroup network (new isp, modem & router)
I have the wired computers(3) connected through the router to homegroup called network3. And they can share file, and printers just fine.
The wireless laptop connects to the router though a wireless connection called 'wireless network' it can get on the internet just fine. but it (laptop) can't join the homegroup the wired computers are connected to. It ask to connect to the homegroup by name (network3), when I click "choose homegroup and sharing options" in the Network and Sharing Center screen. I enter the password that works on the other wired computers, but them I get the dreaded balloon saying "Wndows can not set up a homegroup on this computer " pops up, then just sits there.
How do I get the laptop to join the homegroup? There is no other network shown other than 'wireless network'

A:Win7 Cannot join homegroup wired and wireless

try this first: make certain all computers are scychronized to the same date and time.
I know that sounds like a "given," but I had a smiliar problem in joining my workgroup.
The Win7 laptop could see the other computers but when trying to connect, it asked
for the network password & identified my computer as belonging to a domain (which
it wasn't).
I tried everything. My time was the same on all the systems. Then I noticed the Win7
system was a day off. I fixed that and walla! Win7 could not only see the other systems
but also, connect--a two week search & trying to connect, solved by the simple
thing of making sure all computers had the same time & date.
Also, you need to have the "everyone" group active, with full rights.
And user accounts with the same name and password on each system.

If those things don't work, hopefully others will answer with the answer.

A:Wireless win7 can't access wired linux samba share

ok, so I found a workaround I guess. I would still like to know why it won't show up in the "Network" drop down or any other way to connect. Anyway, so I used

net use x: \\$IP\$share folder /user:$IP\$username

If i can connect this way, why can't I connect any other way?

Instead of buying and installing a Netgear PCI wireless card for that desktop, you should've bought a Linksys USB wireless adapter. The install and setup process would've been much simpler and faster. Netgear is also known to be more difficult to setup than Linksys.


Go to Start - Run - SERVICES.MSC - OK, then expand the window so you can see the list more clearly.

Change the startup type to Automatic, then click Apply - OK.

For the first time in 2 years of use, my logitech mx3200 wireless keyboard is not functioning more than a couple of hours before I have to try and reset via my logitech driver program. It usually takes several attempts to reconnect so the keyboard works.

I have never had a usb receiver with this keyboard and have a wired logitech LX3 optical mouse which works fine.

I am looking for an answer to my problem short of buying a new keyboard.

Just finished building a new desktop, and just as everything clicked and fell into place.... I started getting the wireless setup and hit a wall. I've tried both a PCI and USB adapter and it's still not working. I'm running build 7100 of the RC (Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit). I've tried a D-Link WDA-2320 (PCI) and Linksys Compact G (USB) and neither work. I click connect, enter my WPA2-PSK key and it says 'Cannot connect.' I hit troubleshoot and it gives me nothing.

I'm at a loss. Is there something special to do in Windows 7 to get wireless working or is it the adapters I'm trying? If so, is there one that you know 100% works on 64-bit? I've already pre-ordered Home Premium, and I need the 64-bit version.. so I could really use some help on this one! Would love to actually try out my new build!

A:Win7 RC Build 7100 Wireless Issues...

hi kyarb, well there are many possibilaties as to why is this not working. you said you just finished building a new desktop, so I am asuming the first thing you tried with it is to install windows 7 corrent? the first thing to check, is if it's a windows 7 spesific issue or not, I would try installing a copy of vista or xp just for testing.

if you still have this issue with xp or vista, other things you can check:

1. driver: try re-installing or updating the driver, I had a problem once with a wireless card, but when I uninstalled it and re-installed it it worked. to do that right click on computer and click on manage, then device drivers, check the network adaptors, select the adaptor, right click and select uninstall driver
2. if uninstalling/re-installing the driver didn't work, try updating the driver if you can find a newer version of the driver. goto the manufactor's site and goto the support/download section, look for the latest w7 drivers.
3. if updating the driver doesn't work, or if you can't find an updated w7 version on the manufactor's site, then try looking for a vista driver and try that, since some of the w7 drivers are still fairly new and the vista ones are more tested, most vista drivers seem to work under w7 as well, but make sure to install with vista compatability mode
4. try to see if the distance from the wireless access point or router makes a difference, usually for 802.11g it works only upto a max distance of 45 M indoors, but for 802.11a it only works for 15 M and doesn't not work through walls or doors. see if getting your PC closer to the router helps or not.
5. if nothing is helping, it's a good idea to try unsecure mode to see if it's a security related issue. goto to your router's configuration by opening a browser and typing in ( or sometimes ), and type in password which is usually admin/admin by default, look for the wireless security section and disable encryption. if it works after that it means there is something wrong in your security settings between the router and your PC. try different secuirty methods, for me I found the most compatable security protocol is WEP. WPA was working ok but not for my mobile, when I switched to WEP everything worked fine. if you were using 128-bit try using 64-bit and see if that works better.
6. sometimes there is intefearance between your wirless network and your cordless phone or other wireless networks in the region. since you are propably using 802.11g you are then using 2.4Ghz, and you can't change that, but you can change the chanel, either 1,6,11. I think it's 6 by default, try 11 or 1 and see if that helps. or just try powering off your cordless phone while you test. also your microwave might intefear, so if you have one near by try turning that off as well, and see if it makes a difference.
7. since you have tried two different wireless adaptos but you still have the problem, check if it's a problem with your router itself, do you have other PCs or laptops that are connected properly? if all of the above doesn't help and you don't have any other laptop or PC connected to try, see if replacing the router helps, either borrow one from your friend or just ask for a replacement to see if that helps. have you tested this router before and was it working properly in the past?

network sequence.

Verizon DSL Modem bridged to Cisco wrt57g router (which handles the wireless) and then a 8 port switch which all but the laptop is plugged into. wired machines can see and interact with laptop, laptop can see wired machines but can not log in to any across network. (network not found)

the wireless shows the name of the network, wired does not.

also, is there just anyway to reset network settings to start fresh? I don't even want to get into this homegroup thing (which I seem to have 4 of and they all have the same name, what ever happened to workgroups you could name?)

A:wireless won't see wired. wired sees wireless

Welcome to the forum Avix.

To get out of those Homegroups just leave them all by following this guide. Homegroup network only works with Windows 7 machines.
Homegroup - Leave

If you have other Op systems in your network you have to use either the Work or Public file sharing options. If you need to reset you can either use ipconfig commands or just reset the router and modem then follow the set up procedure for your router.
ipconfig - Windows Command Line Utility

Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network

I set up everything and if I have it wired it works fine but wireless it says can't find page when you try to get on the internet. I have set up networks before and never had a problem. first time I have used a Belkin router G+ I guess one of my question is this. I was reading on the Belkin site that it is already set for dynamic and that is for a cable modem and sounds like I should change it to pppoe for a DSL modem. would that make the difference. It is a brand new laptop and the wireless card is on and it sees the network and works when wired, it says it is connected wirelessly but wont get on the internet when not wired. Would the pppoe thing make a differnce? Please give me some help here. Thanks

I have recently sorted out the wireless connection of a child's laptop to a wireless printer. It works perfectly. Howver, the parent's, wired, desktop computer does not now print. No changes were made to the desktop , which was working fine before this.. I am not at the location now but are there any ideas why this should suddenly occur. Both computers are running XP.

A:Wireless printer not printing from wired computer after connection by wireless lapto

Wireless printers can be connected both by USB and wireless simultaneously. However, I have come across many that say they should but don't do so easily. Sometimes they have to be setup wireless first then USB and others vice versa..
In my opinion, it is probably the best option to add the printer to the desktop through the network. Then there should be no problems with setup. Hope that helps..

My laptop can't connect to my router, everyone else can but mine just wont connect. It has connected to the internet through the router a couple of times but it will only last for a minute or so and then the connection would be lost.

I have a windows XP laptop, my router is a Netgear Wireless-G Router WGR614 v9, and is connected to a modem.

My wireless card detects the connection but it just can't connect to it. When I tried to set up the router using the provided installation CD, it detected said that the modem wasn't being detected.

Here is my question, My roommate has a wireless network installed in the apartment we share. It is actually set up nicely, very rarely any problems getting on-line and browsing and such. The router is a Netgear WNDA 3700 and cable service is thru Comcast. I play a lot of on-line games and sometimes the connection will drop and I get a lot of lag and sometimes die (no fun). I was wondering if it is possible to run a Cat 5 cable from the back of the router straight to my computer, there is 1 connection available on the router, and If this is possible I want to make sure it won't interfere with him getting on the internet and doing whatever he does while I'm on-line. Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions.

I generally don't have a need to network computers together. In fact if I do network in my home it will be for only one purpose and would prefer to have the network down 99.99% of the time.

I can run the lines needed to connect these two computers but wireless would be easier to get going.

I am just wondering if wireless is secure enough.

If I do connect two computers together I would want to set it up so I have a link on the desktop's where I can connect the network and disconnect it even if it requires me to hire out custom coding.

I guess what I am saying is would want the computers connected about once a week for a few minutes and then break the connection as easy as possible but also securely.

Hello all, I do hope I can make this as clear as possible to get quick assistance;

I have an Epson Stylus D88 printer connected by USB to my Windows XP desktop that is connected to my router by an ethernet cable.

I would like to print through that printer from my Win7 laptop wirelessly, but when I follow the "add printer" steps I get told; "Windows can't find a driver for EPSON Stylus D88 Series on the network. To locate one manually, click OK. Otherwise, click Cancel and consult your network administrator or the printer manufacturer's website."

Can someone please advise on the quickest, simplest or most efficient means on getting this all setup.

This is weird, but if my Win 7 computer is on and connected to the router (wired), then neither my Toshiba laptop (also running Win 7) nor an iPod will reconnect after sleep.

After reading through this forum, I tried disabling the Homegroup on both Win 7 computers, but it didn't help. Even tried disabling the IPv6 on the network adapters.

I've also made sure power remains on to the wireless adapter even when computer is asleep. And updated all my drivers, etc.

The only thing that helps is turning off the wired Win 7 computer. Obviously not a permanent solution!

Help appreciated.

The laptop is also showing a Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #3. Could this have anything to do with the problem?

I'm currently on the same Internet but through my Ubuntu (which works flawlessly). Which leads me to believe it's either an option I have hidden away somewhere in Win7 or my motherboard having trouble communicating with the ethernet port with Win7.

Any ideas? It's day 5 and it's driving me nuts!

Hello genesis.

So it is a USB keyboard the works with the laptop but not with the desktop?

Attach the keyboard with the laptop. And then follow the instructions.
Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
It will open the "computer management" window.
Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
Expand "Keyboards" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
Select one item under it, right click, Properties.
Click on the "Driver" tab, and under it, click the "Driver Details" button.
Upload a screenshot of the resulting window.
It will let us know the drivers that the keyboard is using. And then it is to check why that driver is not working there in the desktop. Also upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

A:issues after installing to dual boot win7 enter32 and win7 ult 64

The first screenshot shows W being booted from XP as signified by XP being marked System. It must have been installed from the XP partition thus locking out C drive letter, or it would always boot as C.

The second screenshot shows C booting from System Reserved.

What I would do is boot into C again, install EasyBCD (click Download - no Name or Email required), on Edit OS tab delete all other OS's except the C drive, then on the Add OS tab add XP and Enterprise by their type and drive letter back to the multi-boot menu. This is providing you don't mind having Enterprise on a letter other than C. If you do then I'd reinstall it correctly from boot.

You should also mark Inactive all partitions except System Reserved which is the only one booting all OS's after this operation and hence the only one which should be marked Active, period. Partition - Mark as Inactive - Windows 7 Forums

How is it you are using Enterprise which is meant for large organizations, and how it it activated when that is only done by special MAK keys administered by IT departments of organizations? If you're not entitled to use it then I would delete its partition.

Hello Gras and welcome!

All I can think of at the moment is that the motherboard drivers or BIOS may need updating for the newer card to work. I am not sure if this is one of the things you have tried. The most recent BIOS is version 0902 or a beta version 1001.

It does not look as if ASUS have released any W10 drivers so I am guessing you are running with the default W10 drivers installed by Microsoft when you upgraded to W10. These may not be optimised for your system. Older W7 64bit drivers released by ASUS might work better if you want to try them out; or search on Google for drivers that other people have had success with on your motherboard.

I have a Netgear ASDL wired router with two PCs connected. I've bought a laptop and want to connect to the router using the laptop's wireless card.
What do I need to add to my router to enable me to do this?

A:wired to wireless

You'll need a wireless router; before buying you should check that the two routers can be configured to work with one another. Alternatively, upgrade your ADSL Modem router to a wireless ADSL modem router such as the DG834PN or DG834G(2). This will probably be the cheaper option, because you can flog the old router on ebay to offset the cost of the new one.

Also check out the LinksysbyCisco website as their products have been well recommended recently.

Hello I just got a new ASUS recently and it is a wired desktop while my old one is wireless. I have an ethernet cable but it is too short to reach the router so I tried to plug it into the other computer because I remember doing it a long time ago. It does not work and says it is unidentified and won't transfer the internet how can I fix this?

I currently have two computers on a home network sharing DSL via a wired linksys router. I just purchased a Linksys Wireless AP + Cable/DSL Router with 4-port switch. I only have two wireless pci adapters to utilize among 4 computers. Question is...How do I get them all on the same network. Is it possible to install the wireless network with the two cards I have and somehow extend the network using the hardwired router? Hope this isn't too confusing. I also would like to network two of the computers to one epson printer. Any suggestions or am I asking for too much? three of the computers will be fairly close to one another one will be in the basement. Equipment I have right now:

Data File transfers has nothing to do with the Data Usage, you're not on unlimited plan with Verizon?

You may do unlimited wireless/wired file transfers and won't affect your data usage plan with Verizon.

Streaming Music/videos, downloading/uploading files using wired/wireless internet connection will affect your data usage.

A:Need To Go From Wireless To Wired

Right click the Wireless Connection and click Disable. You can Enable it when you want to use wireless again.

If this is a laptop, usually there is a separate button above the function keys or on the front of the computer, or a combination of Fn and a function key (F2 for HP) with an antenna symbol marking it, that is a wireless on/off switch. Turn off the wireless. Just remember to turn it back on when needed.

Would I be better off performace wise and be more secure using a wired setup?

A:Wired vs Wireless

in short...yes.

As far as speed, you probably wouldn't notice a huge performance decrease, but wired is DEFINATELY safer unless you take the extra precautions that wireless networking requires.

edit: Now that I think about it, there probably won't be a performance decrease since DSL doesn't have too much bandwidth (256Kbps I think).

I have an existing wired network with four computers behind a linksys hub which is behind a satellite modem that serves as a dchp server which I can not change. I have a son going to college in the fall and have purchased him a laptop with a wireless card installed. What is the cheapest way to have wireless access to my existing setup

A:Wired & wireless

How many ports is the hub?

Cheapest way would be to buy a wireless router and hook it up to the hub via a LAN port (instead of wan port) and configure the router to have all DHCP and settings like that on the router OFF.

The little more expensive but easier to set up way would be to buy a wireless acess point and hook it up to the hub.

The best way would be if the hub already has all the ports used then buy a switch (switches are better than hubs) with a few more ports than you currently have and swap it out with the hub. Then hook up either of the suggestions above.

I would like to use a wired connection for file sharing, printer sharing and some network gaming. The problem I have is this. As soon as I plug in any computer to the wired router (which does not have an internet connection) that computer starts to look for the internet on the wired connection instead of the wireless, even when already connected and downloading something wirelessly. It will only return to looking for anything on the wireless when the wired connection is lost. How can I fix this?

well duh yes

i have 768kbps well actually 860kbps
my download is about 86kb somtimes 90 but 86 stable

will it be raelly faster?

A:wireless or wired

It all depends on what wired connection you are comparing with what wireless

the commonest Wired connections run at 100Mb/s whereas the commonest wireless networks 802.2g run at 54Mb/s wired connections range from 10Mb/s upto 1Gb/s whilst wireless runs from 11Mb/s to about 250Mb/s so there is some overlap in the ranges.

However any internet connection is based on maximum allowed by the ISP which in your case would be 860kbps which is way below the network speeds of either wired or wireless, so would not be effected by the switch.

Generally wired connections are faster that wireless but only really apply to local networks

I am having a cable modem installed in a couple of weeks and have to make a decision whether to go wireless or wired. Any helpful advice which way to go will be appreciated.

A:wireless or wired


It mostly depends on what you plan to do, where you plan to have every thing (router, computers, etc.).

If you are just planning to surf the 'net then wireless will suffice. If you plan to do a lot of file transfers between computers then wired would be preferred. Routers are pretty cheap these days so I would recommend buying a wireless router since most come with 4 wired ports (Linksys even has one with 8 ports) and you can disable the wireless side until you are ready to use it.

If you plan to use laptops at all or plan to put the router in one room and have computers throughout your house, then wireless is easier (in theory since depending on the construction of your house and other wireless devices around can quickly limit the range of the wireless router).

To summarize, buy a wireless router. Run cables where you can. Use wireless when needed.

Good Luck!

1. Is it better to be hard wired then wireless?? I get 300mb wireless n @ 2.4ghz and 100mb wired.I'm cunfused!!!

2.What is the advantage of duel channel 5mhz and 2.4mhz?? I get only fair coverage @5hmz and excellent coverage at 2.4mhz. I tried all the various settings Fair is the best I get.Did I waste my money??

My tv is hard wired...Any advantage to wireless @ 5 Mhz even at Fair signal? I get 125mb with a fair signal.

I think the consensus is that hardwiring by CAT5 is the best for HD video such as blu-ray and AVCHD. If you don't want to string the wire, then you have to live with what you get.

I have a DI-514 D-Link wireless router. I have a desktop wired to it and trying to get my laptop hooked up wireless-ly to it. Currently the wired works fine to the desktop and to the laptop. The router status shows that it is sending packets wirelessly and the DWL-650m adapter status shows it is sending packets. The problem is neither are listening to the other. Is there a method to test either? My OS on both is WINXP pro.

A:wireless/wired question

Can you get on the internet with the laptop, but you can't browse shared files on each computer? Did you try browsing by the ip address of each computer? \\ intead of your computer name like \\Laptop?
