Hello i Have the above problem while I try to share a printer on a domain network.
My windows firewall (localy) is also damage, is that the problem that I have to solve first?

Windows 8  - cannot share a printer error message appears "[Window Title] Printer Properties  [Main Instruction] Printer settings could not be saved.  There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper.   [OK]

A:Windows 8 - cannot share a printer error message appears "[Window Title] Printer Properties [Main Instruction] Printer settings could not be saved. There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. [OK]

You may need to reinstall the printer. Remove the printer driver from Control Panel\Programs and Features, then add the printer from Devices and Printers.

Please note that if the printer driver is not in the list in Devices and Printers, I suspect that the printer is currently not compatible with Windows 8. In this case I suggest you contact the printer manfuacturer for more information.

I have an NT server that has an HP 4050 three-tray printer set up on it. (The 4050 printer is attached to a print server on the LAN) When I go to the NT server to adjust the printer properties so that the printer will print to tray tree instead of tray two and click OK, the server does not remember the settings. So when I go back into the printer properties the configuration is still set up to print to tray 2. Does anyone have any suggestions I can try out? I already tried re-installing the driver for the printer.

A:HP 4050 printer properties on NT server can not remember it's settings

Have you check the defaults on the front control panel of the printer? If the printer thinks that there is not the correct paper in tray two, then it will go to the next tray that it thinks has the correct paper.

This is my first post here or anywhere relating to my computer problems. I am going into Computer>manage>device manager>network adapters>my adapter>rightclick>properties>advanced and I am trying to change the "property" from "802.11d" to "wireless mode" (under value next to "wireless mode" it says IEE 802.11b/g/n) which i believe my BT internet supports, but when I click on it and press OK, I go and check what it is again and it has reverted back to the original 802.11d. I have tried this with a different network adapter so it is not due to the adapter Id think! The other network adapter has different settings under "property" with Network type (with value infrastructure or ad-hoc) and wireless mode. Any help appreciated, let me know if you need more information I will give it immediately!

I have a PC which was upgraded from Windows 8.1 (no, clean install is not an option on this machine)

So the problem is that any changes I make in the Advanced Sharing Settings in Network and Sharing Centre are getting changed but their effects are not taking place.

For example I disabled sharing of the "Users" folder, that didn't work, it still shows up.
I disabled Password Protected Sharing, that didn't work, I need to put a password each time.

Here is what I am trying to do. I would like to save / backup the mapped drive settings for specific users, as well as mapped printers. I currently have a backup script that grabs the user(s) profile and other necessary files. This is done when logged into the local admin account. Ideally I'd like to just make it a part of this script, but If I have to be logged in as the user to grab these settings automatically it would suffice.

The second half is that I would like to restore them as well through a bat or script file, so everything is done without as much human error as possible.

I am not sure where to grab all these settings from, if anyone has help or suggestions out there it would be much appreciated.

After having setup successfully Win 7 Pro some years ago printing worked fine for several pdf printers
and connected USB laser printers.

Then, recently, I must have changed something accidentially in System.

When I now want to print (e.g. a Word doc or web page from Firefox) it doesn't work anymore.

EVERY printer does not work!

Further investigations revealed that the printer ports are vanished in printer Proprties dialogs.
Its completely empty!

Have a look at the attached snapshot.

I don't know which event or action caused the printer port deletion.
Maybe a new Win Patch or an uninstallation of driver or a registry key adding.

However re-installation of printer drivers does not help since the required underlying ports are gone.

How can I re-install them again?

Is there a manual Registry add script?

Hi all,

I've an unusual problem...

First issue arose a week ago. I have a client who has three Xp clients on a network. THey each print to a Brother HK 2700N - connected and shared via usb from ws01 originally. File and printer shares on PC were corrupt and installation of office 2003 as well as logmein and antivirus software resulted in us reloading the OS from scratch. We placed the printer onto a second PC (ws02 and created a share). It prints fine both locally and from ws03 (the third client).

On reloading the OS onto ws01 and connecting everthing backup, printer still shared on ws02, it seemed to work fine. However, on day two, it dropped the printer. Yesterday, I reconnected printer and it was fine. Today, its gone again from this same computer, but ws02 still prints locally as well as ws03 through the share. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

I have ten computers connected to an ethernet switch, and they were all configured to print via an HP Jetdirect 500X printer switch connected through the ethernet switch as well. Recently the router was replaced and now I cannot print on any computer. The router is a Netgear Wireless-G WGR614 (but it is not being used in a wireless application). Please tell me what I need to do to bring back printing capability. The printer is an HP 930C, by the way. Thank you.

There were 6 network printers here.I wanted to install one network printer in my pc now. I selected "a network printer, or a printer attached to another printer" in add printer wizard and clicked next, then I cliked browse for a printer. It popped up a window and under "shared printers" list, it showed up printer names like "pc1\hplaserjet1", "pc1\hplaserjet1", "pc2\hplaserjet1", "pc2\hplaserjet2", etc. etc. It was not showing up printer names alone.

It is a network printer so I wonder why it is showing pc1\........ like that instead of just printer names. So I'm confused how to proceed further.

A:[SOLVED] Windows 7 & Network Printer Issue

Are you specifically using a driver designed for Windows 7 on the Win7 machines? By default, the print server will push out the driver installed to the client when first connected, so if the driver being used is for XP or 2003, it may not work properly under Win7. That error message means "ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER", which would indicate a driver issue indeed.

settings from the print server ? We have enabled Duplexing as the default for
printing ( conserve that paper ! ) for our HP Laserjet printers on the
Print Server, but if a user goes on their local printer settings and unchecks
duplexing, it will not re-pull that device setting from the print server
unless you delete and then re-add the printer on the local machine. Is there
a way to have the printer settings pulled from the server without have to

I am using a notebook that came with Windows and upgraded to Windows I noticed this problem months ago before upgrading to Windows but it was OK tab, Advanced DNS click Can't TCP/IP Settings, not causing a problem so I ignored it until now I am trying to switch to other DNS name servers I set up the new DNS server addresses in the TCP IPv properties but they were not working Checking the advances setting under the DNS tab I noticed that there is a long set of addresses from IPconfig it seems to be on the first line in DNS server addresses box See image Note - the bottom two addresses had come over from what I had set up in the TCP IPv properties I can not remove this series of addresses The remove button is not Advanced TCP/IP Settings, DNS tab, Can't click OK greyed out but nothing happens when I click it Same with editing it nothing happens when I click Edit I can add addresses edit added addresses and remove added addresses I can also move the top line down but when I click quot OK quot nothing happens To close the dialog box I must click Cancel If I open the advanced dialog box and do not click the DNS tab I can close the dialog box by clicking OK but once I open the DNS tab clicking OK will not longer work Even if I go back to the IP Settings tab Advanced TCP/IP Settings, DNS tab, Can't click OK clicking OK will switch it to the DNS tab but will not close it Anyone have an idea how I can reset this Or remove this top line of addresses Thanks nbsp

A:Advanced TCP/IP Settings, DNS tab, Can't click OK

OK, I figured this out myself. But in case someone else has the problem, here is the solution I figured out.
The problem was the GUI interface was locking up or not responding correctly, so I figured I had to find a manual way to change (or erase) the DNS servers that were blocking things up. I figured there was probably a way via the command prompt, and in fact, that is how we solved things.
I started an admin session of the command prompt (Win+X - Command prompt (admin))
Then I ran the netsh utility (typed netsh).
From the netsh command prompt I typed:
"interface ip set dnsservers "Wireless Network Connection" source=dhcp"
That did the trick. I immediately checked the settings and sure enough the long string of DNS servers was gone.
BTW, "Wireless Network Connection" was the connection I was having trouble with. This told netsh to switch the DNS server names for that connection back to selecting the DNSservers automatically.
I could also replaced "source=dhcp" with "static" (Note this is not a valid DNS server) to have it set to that DNS Server. Or I can now go in and change it manually.
Problem solved!

what do I need to do?
the screen blackens then defaults to low or med.
I go into the settings to restore to high.
I scanned for viruses-none.
do not know why this happens.

A:Display properties-settings

by low or med i am guessing your color depth?
256=low 16-bit=med 32bit=high?
or are you talking about the resolution?

what kind of video card do you have?
how old is it?
how recently have you updated the drivers for it?
how recently have you updated directx?

I recently changed my user account, I made a new one and deleted my old one but kept my files. Now I am no longer able to pin stuff to taskbar, change my folder and search settings, change the default application to open a file, etc. I have no idea how to fix this. I mean my user account is the Computer Administrator, I took ownership of every file on this user account but still. I have no idea how to fix this.

Sorry for the vague title, I didn't know how to really explain the situation since it includes so many things to it.

I just purchased an IBM PII 400, all works great except for the display properties for my monitor, I am only able to choose from 2 or 16 colors and am stuck on 640 by 480 pixels.....When I was using this monitor before I was able to adjust these settings, what need I do now to fix this problem

A:Display Properties Settings

Hello Kitty and welcome to TSG!

That is a common problem. What you need to do is reinstall the video driver; it's not your monitor that is at fault. You will have to find out the make and model of you video card.

Not sure if this will work but check this page. Go the the

Dear community, I've updated my BIOS recently(current version I have is >> Insyde F.26, 2014-06-03 << ), but I still dont have the advanced settings there available. What I am looking for is to unlock them, just like it's done on the image below:  Currently my BIOS just don't have this advanced settings tab. Before experimenting on my own I prefer to ask here on forum, is there any safe way to unlock these settings?

It's a Realtek RTL81688/811B (don't think that has anything to do with my

Question), but thought I'd include the info.

Short answer - leave 'em alone cos the defaults are what you'd want in 99% of cases

All of the "offload" settings should be enabled, but they probably already are. Don't enable the "interrupt moderation" one because that will throttle the network stack in order to decrease processor utilisation.

Hi Folks,
I'm browsing through my windows firewall settings and I'd like to disable everything that's not required for proper operation.

It is my opinion that the more stuff that is disabled in my computer system, the more secure it is.. Anyone have a different opinion?
I already went through Services.msc and disabled stupid things like telephony and remote desktop connection and things that I'll never use.

Inside the Windows Firewall advanced settings, can I disable all the windows media player sharing service stuff? I use windows media player to play music and movies but I certainly don't do any sharing with it.

What about wifi direct scan and wifi driect network discovery... My desktop pc is hardwired (cat5).. I don't need any of that stuff right?

Sonic Wall mobile content??? Huh?

What about Play To Streaming Server ??

More to follow!T


A:Windows Firewall Advanced Settings

Not necessarily. For example, it wouldn't be more secure if you blocked software updates that fixed security vulnerabilities, or blocked svchost from connecting to Certificate Authorities to check for revoked SSL/TLS certificates, blocked Smartscreen filter connections, etc.

I'm browsing through my windows firewall settings and I'd like to disable everything that's not required for proper operation.

I'd leave all the Core Networking and Network Discovery rules there. If you look at the Network Discovery rules, they're only enabled on Private Networks by default anyway, the rules are disabled in the firewall rules for Public networks (grey tick, not green. You can also double-check the settings HERE). And if you have file and printer sharing switched off, your private network is treated as a 'Public' network anyway.

In addition, even though I don't have Wi-Fi on my main machine, I left the Wi-Fi Direct rules there as well, mainly so that if I import the rules into a laptop the rules are already set up. I was planning on trying out Miracast at some point with a laptop, but never got around to it, so if you don't plan on using a Wi-Fi direct printer/scanner/screen/etc., then I can't think off the top of my head why you'd need those rules. Although, if you look closer at the Wi-Fi direct rules such as the 'Wi-Fi direct scan' rule for example, you'll see that it's bound to specific services anyway, for example 'Wi-Fi direct scan' is bound to the Windows Image Acquisition service, so it's not allowing svchost to do whatever it wants under that rule.

I get the impression Microsoft don't like people blocking outbound connections due to the headaches it can cause and so personally I think that's why Windows Firewall isn't user friendly. For example, although I agree with Microsoft's logic in not having intrusive firewall popups (like you get third-party firewalls), they go too far the other way whereby they make it incredibly difficult to enabling blocked connection logging (so you can see what's actually being blocked). I can't see how anyone could use Windows Firewall for outbound filtering without this, yet Microsoft make it really, really difficult! You can find instructions on how to enable blocked connection logging from one of my other posts HERE .

If you want an idea on what Windows processes will likely want outbound connections, you can have a look through the rules in the screenshot below. The user added rules have a '+' in front of them to keep them grouped separately at the top. Windows Firewall on my machine is setup so that it's quite restrictive, inbound is set to 'Block all connections' (not just set to 'block (default)') and all outbound connections that don't match a rule are blocked. And as mentioned above, file and printer sharing is switched off, as I have no use for it. However, all this is more for curiosity than security because once malicious software is given/gained full admin privileges on a machine, it could just bypass the firewall anyway. Although, outbound firewall filtering will help against this type of thing.

Hello Slade,

You only need to have one page file for Windows, that's best kept on C:.

To reset everything, remove the page file on all drives, restart the PC to clear them, then set your page file to be on the C: drive and be managed by the system.

I've always wondered what I could do to tweak and improve network speed and gaming Ping etc. with this network adapter but no idea what to do.

In Device Manager I'm using Microsoft signed driver dated 6/9/09 for Atheros AR5007 B/G WiFi Adapter and here is what the Advanced Settings say:

1: 802.11 Preamble: (default) Long and Short, (optional) Long only
2: Network Address: (default) Not Present, (optional) Value [ ]
3: Recieve Buffers: (default) 256
4: Scan Valid Interval: (default) 60
5: Transmit Buffers: 256

Anything I can tweak there?

A:Atheros AR5007 B/G Advanced Settings?

nothing that can improve performance. internet speed is mainly based on your internet plan with your isp, your network card should not limit the speeds unless it is really old.

Hi Everyone,
Recently, my computer's "Advanced power settings" for all three power plans (Balanced, Power saver, and High Performance) always seem to reset to default values.
It is namely the "Minimum and Maximum Processor state" option, where the minimum and maximum values frequently change themselves to 100%, thus meaning that AMD Cool'n'Quiet is not being used on my machine.

Anyone have any solutions / fixes to this problem? Thanks!
