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.)

Hi everyone

We have purchased 2 new HP Elitebooks and both are getting these bluescreens when accessing the network over wireless. I am assuming it has to do with the wireless cards or their drivers but this has now occured even when using just the 3G modem and VPN client

I have attached dumps, if someone could please advise what else i can try as i have already updated all network drivers, vpn software, 3g modem drivers etc

Any help will be much appreciated

No DMP files included in upload please try this method
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

I have just bought a laptop to replace an old XP running machine. The rest of the house has XP machines and i have always been able to access them via the old laptop through the wireless network that i installed recently. I have managed to connect to the wireless network successfully with the new laptop but I cannot find any other machines on the network - I am a vista novice and was pretty crap with XP too. Is it something to do with IP addresses? I want to be able to see the machine that has all the shared drives on. Can any one offer a user freindly solution to this as i am sure it is probably quite easy! Many thanks

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Perhaps you also need to forward port 9000 (Media Port).

If the Comcast modem is set to use NAT, you will need to port forward on it as well.

My laptop crashed and I had to reset everything. I just finished getting the network to view the laptop as part of the network. From my desktop when I doubleclick the laptop connection in my workgroups - it asks for a password. I don't ever recall having set one up. I thought you could just hit enter or enter "admin" and it would allow access until an official password has been created. How can I reset this or get past this request?

Do I have to reset the drive name I gave to the laptop (from the desktop) before it crashed?

Hi. My husband recently installed a Linksys Wireless G-Cable Gateway wcg200 router that is connected to our HP desktop. The desktop connects to the internet with no problem.

The problem is that I'd like to use my work-issued laptop at home, but it does not pick up a wireless signal from this router. It picks up a signal from a WiFi 4109 wireless network (and connects to it with limited or no connectivity), but I don't think that this is my router. How do I know if it is?

Since it's probably not my wireless connection that the laptop detects, why don't I see my wireless connection on the network list?

On the Linksys router itself, the wireless light is lit.

I know that my laptop has wireless connectivity because I use wireless at work and have used it in other places (airports, school, etc.).

Any suggestions in very simple computer speak would be greatly appreciated.

A:Accessing Wireless Network

Hi there,
The one stop solution to such problems is to configure your router through its web management interface, or in other words, a kind of a website running on your router/gateway. You can access this page by entering your router's IP address in your web browser from the desktop PC. Its usually something like or

You should now be presented with a login page where u have to enter your admin user and password which again is set to default values in case u haven't changed it.

I would recommend that u refer to your user manual in print or on the CD if u have it for the above mentioned default ip address and login info.

Once in, you should look for the wireless configuration section. Therein you should be able to configure a name for the access point (in this case your router) and also some security measures.

Most importantly, make sure that your router is configured to act as a DHCP server.

I would suggest that you explore all the configuration sections to familiarize yourself, because you may need to come here on a regular basis.

Why is it that when I access two of my computers in the network, there is around 1.5 minutes delay (the mouse cursor is turned into a circle that's running around counterclockwise) before I can access them? The Windows security window also appears even though I set the advanced sharing settings of those computer to "turn off password protected sharing".

This does not happen to my other 3 computers. I'm running Windows 7 x64 on these and I disabled QoS packet scheduler and installed Reliable Multicast Protocol under their adapter settings. For the 3 other computers, QoS packet scheduler is enabled and reliable multicast protocol as well.

I tried enabling QoS packet scheduler on both the computer in question but still the problem persists.

What am I doing wrong here?

Are you using a NAS with built-in external access functionality? Or are you using simple file sharing on each of the computers?

A NAS with the functionality built in is easy to set up. Internal computer file sharing is more complicated. You would need to look into some kind of VPN software, and obviously the computers would need to be left on all the time.

We are a small company with only 3 networked computers, no server, only a hub and router. The computer with the networked drive was recently updated to Service Pack 2, but the other 2 computers are still awaiting update (being that we need the computers all day). One of the 2 computers is able to access the network drive without any problem. However, the other computer (SP 1) requires a restart every day before it is able to access the network drive. I've checked the shared status of the network drive and it is open to sharing for all computers on the network.

Will updating the other computers to service pack 2 solve this? Thanks in advance.

My guess is the network names are now different. Since you chose work network. The new network is neither named MSHOME or Homegroup or whatever the xp machine is currently connected too. I would run the network wizard on the xp machine taking care to name it the same as the new windows 7 installation has named it's new network. The xp machine may require you to know the admin account name and password for the windows 7 machine you are attempting to connect to as well.

To allow access to all folders in the Users folder, It's best to go into the properties of the C:>Users folder and click on the sharing tab then Advanced sharing button, then click on Permissions, then set to read or write "Everyone" access level and apply.

How can I access that card reader in the printer connected to my router via ethernet from a wireless laptop? Do I have to map the card as a drive? I have tried newer drivers already. Any suggestions would be great. Networks are not my strong point.

A:Accessing card reader over network

The manual doesn't mention anything about using the memory cards from your computer, be it connected via USB or ethernet. It looks to me like they are only used for printing directly from the printer. Can you access the memory cards if you connect via USB?

I'm having trouble accessing my Mac from Windows 7. My Mac shows visible in Windows Explorer, but I can't access the files/folders. File/folder sharing is enabled and both are on the same workgroup. The issue I am having is when I try to actually access the folders it is telling me I don't have permission. I can access the user folder \Aaron but anything past that it denies.

Windows never asked me for my Mac login credentials which may be the problem. All the instructions I'm finding say it should ask for them. I cannot figure out how to input them anywhere in order to gain access.

I can access my Windows machine from my Mac fine, but not the other way around. Any help is appreciated.

A:Need Help Accessing Mac from Windows 7 On Home Network

Did you turn on SMB sharing on the MAC?

MAC's use AFP for sharing so you need to enable SMB. The following YouTube video shows how to do this and how to get sharing between the two to work. How to share files between Windows and Mac | - YouTube

You could also try adding the credentials from the MAC to the Windows 7 credential manager, in "Windows Credentials" via the Control Panel.

You would also need to share out which ever folders you want to be available on the Windows 7 machine.

I have a windows 7 or ReadyNAS issue, which i believe I share with many others.

When I cut (or) copy large files from my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 machine to my ReadyNAS the files starts to copy, but after some minutes I'll get a Network Error massage: There is a problem accessing M:\folder\... Make sure you are connected to the network and try again.

I get three choices: Try again, skip or cancel. Try again does not work and the other choices does not copy my files.

I have read through a number of posts without finding a solution. I have tested to disable autotuning and to replace the cable connecting the NAS to the router.


A:Network error; there is a problem accessing

...and the same message shows up when copying large files to my media player (is a Popcorn Hour). Is there a know issue between Windows 7 and Linux (both popcorn and ReadyNAS are Linux based)?

It does however works very nice to copy large folders and files from my Windows XP laptop to my NAS and media player. I have tested to connect my Windows 7 PC direct to the NAS (no router), which works nicely, but unfortunately the copying failure of large files and folders remain.

Any one?

Hello smart people. I posted this problem form another tech forum. I just wanted to have a second opinion on this one.

Before I present my networking woes let me first emphasize this; my networking skills is in between a beginner and an intermediate, so please bear with me.

So here's my problem:

The network on the left side of the diagram above is located in our main campus and on the right side is in our branch campus. My question is:
Is it possible that pc A.1, pc A.2 and pc A.3 can access the shared files in pc B.1? If it is, How?

I'm pretty much sure that there's going to be a bunch of follow up questions after you(the smart people) will make replies on this one. Forgive me if my question is not clear enough, just let me know if you guys needs more details.

Hey guys,

I am just looking into a few things... I am wondering how it is possible to connect to my home network when i am away on holiday or away on business...

I am wondering if there is a possibility of having a URL that will access my network something like and then a username and password ?

could i setup 2 urls going to same network using 2 different username and passwords and can i change the content for each ?


A:Solved: Accessing my home network

Yes. You can do exactly what you're looking to do. I currently have my remote access set up the way you want to for your network. I have one domain registered with DynDNS and another with ChangeIP. The service I am tacking advantage of is called dynamic DNS. DynDNS used to offer this service for free. ChangeIP is currently offering this service for free. I paid the special rate for users being migrated from the free service with DynDNS as it's been rock solid over the years. Until I get the same experience with ChangeIP, I'll have both running in parallel. I use the DynDNS domain for all my personal/business stuff. I hand out the ChangeIP domain to my family members who want to access my baby cam to see my daughter. In actuality, you can access all the same services I use on DynDNS with the ChangeIP domain. I haven't dug into whether my SonicWall can do content filtering based on incoming domain.

An alternative is to use only a single domain and then have a SSL VPN device do all the access controls to the content on your network. I have a Aventail SonicWall SSL VPN appliance which I use to remote into my network. You can set accesses based on username. The usernames can be set up on the local database of the SSL VPN appliance or the appliance can connect to an AD or LDAP server for authentication. Based on the username, you then create access rules. Or you can do this based on groups which then propagates down to users added to the group. There are two methods of access. One requires a full client to be installed on your remote device; laptop or mobile device (phone/tablet). If the permissions are fully unlocked, the full client access will allow you to access the network like you are directly connected to it locally. The other method is a clientless setup. The SSL VPN appliance will act as a proxy to your internal network. The remote client won't need to install anything for access. You can create custom pages when the user connects in where the user sees a custom web delivered desktop. This desktop will contain icons/links for resources this user has permissions to access.

In summary, to do what you're asking, I would use a single domain and then restrict access based on username with a SSL VPN device. To make the use of dynamic DNS seamless, you'll want a firewall/router which has built in support for the dynamic DNS client needed to report back to the service what your public IP is; unless you're fortunate enough to have a static public IP.

I can't seem to find a solution anywhere but the problem is. I have one central computer with windows 7 on it. When any computer in the house, whether it be my laptop with Vista, my desktop with XP, or my other desktop with Windows 7 connects to that network drive it hangs for a couple minutes before being able to open the file, or copy the file. This happens on all 3 machines accessing the network drive on the central computer.

This same result occurred when I setup my other desktop with windows 7 so that makes me think its something with windows 7 itself.

I do not have any firewall/antivirus programs installed, and I even turned off windows firewall and windows defender on the server that were all accessing.

Any ideas?

I will bet when you set up win 7 and it asked you what type of network you are connecting to you said "home". Home (or more properly homegroup) uses a newer version of the IP protocol (IPv6). Homegroup is designed for newer hardware and win 7 machines only.

In mixed environments (especially with older hardware) IPv6 and homegroup sometimes have connectivity issues.

A quick test/workaround is to make a new connection using workgroup. If that fixes the problem you can disable IPv6 and kill homegroup.

I have recently moved to a wireless broadband connection. The connection is slower than my cable internet in my previous residence. So, I'm noticing some things while I work. One thing is that every time I access my local hard drive, there is network traffic and I have to wait for the network. This is while I'm connected to a VPN. The folders I'm accessing are not synchronized off-line files, either. I do have one mapped network drive.

Anyone know what would cause Windows XP to instigate network traffic when accessing a local drive and how to limit it?

This is actually a situation I ran across some time back. Every local access was trying to touch a network drive, and when that drive wasn't available, it got ugly! In my case, it was a errant path in the registry that was being searched every time I opened a file locally.

A:Accessing network drive via DFS namespace hangs

Well, other than the usual disclaimer about putting a database file on a network share like a PST or OST file, I can't say I've ever seen it before. You'd probably want to get a network trace via netsh or netmon or wireshark of the PC attempting to hit the file, and you might even want to get a trace from the server simultaneously as well. There's nothing inherent I can think of that would cause it, other than Win7 would be using SMBv2 to the 2008 box(es), whereas XP would be using SMBv1 - that can have an impact depending on the command responses they are seeing (and whether or not offline files caching is enabled for the location).

Again, PSTs and OSTs on the network are a bad thing, and doing so will only end in tears (if not now, eventually).

When ever I try to access My Network in Win XP Pro SP2 it either crashes My Computer or takes up to 2 minutes for this to load. Is this a common problem in windows? I have 1 other computer (ibook) on the network at all times, and occasionally I have a 2nd laptop connected wirelessly. I can't seem to find the cause for this problem.

I did notice the other day my network speed was very slow, around 4kbs, so I switched both network cards on my computer, and the one on the ibook, to 100 full duplex and that made things go a little faster at 300kbs. Considering the network is a 100mbit network I'd think the speeds should be a little faster then that. Is this a sign that there is something wrong with the networking settings in XP?

A:Problem of accessing to shared resources on a network

Turn off all firewalls and make sure the workgroup network is set to Private. Try to access the already shared folders such as All Users on XP and Public on W8. Once I get everything working normally with those, then I try sharing other folders.

When everything works the way you want, then is the time to try turning on security such as firewalls. I don't know how many times I set a firewall to settings that always worked before, but I could do nothing until I disabled it altogether.

Some of the computers on my network are slow when trying to navigate and open files on my LAN. The computers are running Windows 98 and Win2Kpro. What can I do to speed them up?


A:machines slow accessing files on the network


what is your network configuration? Are you running at 10 or 100 speed on an ethernet? Are you using a 10/100 switch or hub to connect the computers?

If you are running a 100BaseT network, make sure that all link lights show that the connections from server to hub/switch to workstation are all running at 100BaseT and not 10.

There are many other possibilities but thats a good place to start...

hi guys. im new here. im just desperate for any help. im having some probs with my small home network. i used to share all files in every computer before and i never had any problem accessing all files in every PC. i setup my workgroup using XPs (all PCs OS are XP Pro) network setup wizard. everything was working fine til we had a DSL inet connection in which i installed another LAN card on one PC w/c is the ICS host computer. now, i cannot access the files on any computer. the error either says "Access Denied", or "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation", or "A specified authentication package is unknown". i am pretty sure i didnt change any of the settings on any computer.[U] hope i get some helpful info from you guys. tanx

Requiring user name\password when accessing a machine over the network\router,

I have multiple machines connected by switch\router. What I want is to let the system ask any user for the ?network password? when wanting to access any machine via the network (attached). This message (Enter network passwords) sometimes is available and others is not. how to make it appear all the time?

At which level this property is set?

1. At the level of sharing\security of a folder?
2. At level of network sharing?

How to manage this issue? To share a partition\folder but to allow accessing it with user name and password?

Thank you





A:Requiring user name\password when accessing a machine over the network

The problem is that Windows remembers these user names and passwords unless you tell Windows not to remember them.

I haven't tested out this Security Policy yet but it does tell Windows not to not allow storage of passwords and credentials so it may have the desired effect you seem to be looking for.

Just go to Control Panel, > Administrative tools,> Local Policies,> Security Options,>Network Access, Do not allow Storage of Passwords and Credentials per the picture below. Enabled should restrict Storage of Credentials.

I am having difficulties accessing the network share to my Windows 2000 printer [printer attatched via USB to Win2000 computer, shared among all computers]. Both computers are behind a router, and are on the same workgroup. My Vista machine did not have any problems accessing this printer or authenticating to Windows 2000, but Windows 7 seems to. The problem is when I go to connect to the PC, I am prompted for a username and password, but upon entering a valid one, it does not connect and comes back as invalid.

I attempted to navigate to the share manually through the "add pritner" device, but this did not work either. [Giving //computername/printer]

Using Windows7 RC1, build 7100 and Windows 2000 SP4. No difficulty sharing or authenticating on the LAN with any other OS

Any assistance would be great =), thank you.

Hi there,

I have two computers on the same network that I use in tandem. Computer 1 has my dropbox folder and the entire disk is shared on my network for read AND write. Computer 2 is dedicated to running a CNC machine, and I do not wish it to run dropbox, but I want it to access the dropbox folder on Computer 1 via network share. Currently, when I attempt to access this folder from Computer 2 I recieve an "Access Denied" message, but I'm able to access all other folders on the share. What steps do I need to take to be able to write onto this dropbox folder from my other computer?

Thanks in advance,

I have updated d-link Dir-655 with the latest firmwire and sharepoint software.
Sharepoint will connect and see the drive on the router but I do not see the drive in
windows explorier. Do I need to map the drive?

The router dirve must be there since sharepoint sees the drive when I connect to it.
I also see it when I click on the USB icon in the XP Tray area icon in the low
corner right hand in Win XP.

Why is it not seen in Win Explorier?

I have a laptop (with win 7 home premium) connected wirelessly to the router. I have a server connected (wired) with some shared folders on it.

Now, when I try to open the networkshare on my laptop (when I'm connected wireless to the network), it won't work 3/4 of the times I try. But to let it work, I just do a ping to the IP of the server and when I try again the networkshare will open. Very strange.

When I'm connected to the network with a wired connection, the networkshare will always open up directly.

Is something wrong with my wireless connection? I have an excellent signal and installed the latest drivers for the network card.

My network is setup as followed:

Wireless router -> switch (downstairs) -> switch (upstairs)
My laptop is wirelessly connected to the router. The server is connected to the switch that's upstairs.

Hope I explained it well.

Recently added a new laptop running windows 10 ("Win10 laptop")onto our home network. Since then, within a short period of time (minutes to perhaps an hour), others on network no longer have access to internet (Win10 laptop maintains internet access). Win10 laptop is connected through wifi. Mac is also connected wifi and is one that loses internet access (it remains connected to network I believe, since I can see the modem when I enter its ip address, for example). Our ISP is low bandwidth (satellite), however I have tried to reduce the 'bandwidth hog' characteristics of the W10 laptop without success.

I can reset (power off/on) the router, and all machines have internet access again, however, not long lasting. Any suggestions?

We have a total of 5 PC's running Win7, all are Home Premium except for one which is Professional. When I connect from my laptop to the PC running Professional via the Network, I am not required to log-in... i.e., no username and password are required.

But when I connect from any of the other Win7 computers on the network, I AM REQUIRED to log-in. That creates problems when one of those machines wants to use a shared device on the Win7 Professional PC...

How do I setup the Win7 Professional PC so it does not ask for a username and password from the other machines? I don't know what I did initially to make it so my Laptop doesn't need to login... Guess I did it by accident.

Many thanks in advance!


A:Password questions about accessing other Win7 PC's over a home network

There should be a save password option when you connect to a network resource that requires a password.

It is also possible you setup a network folder and saved the password.

So when you directly type it in your system assumes the credentials already set for that network share.

A:Wireless drops out when accessing local files on the network

my initaill reaction was to see if there are firmware updates avaible for the modem/router/ and a driver update for the pc network adapter
BUT when you said
When the laptop is close to the wireless router (i.e 5 bars instead of the normal 3), the problem doesn't seem to occur. Click to expand...

wasnt so sure - BUT it would be worth looking at the firmware and see what updates are available
If we could have makes and exact models of all devices - we should be able to post the information here

This only ever happens on wireless - the ethernet connected PC still works fine on the internet when the "drop out" occurs
correct ?

Lets try a few things -
When its working normally - make a note of all the status light on the router and modem
then when it "drops out" check those light and post any difference here

again when its working correclty lets see an ipconfig /all and various ping tests and post results here- see below
Now when it drops out repeat all the tests and save to something like notepad and when you have internet access post back here - make sure we know which is which

Also lets see what the wireless landscape looks like - post and image of the xirrus wireless tool - see details below
{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 results here
We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here
-> Start
-> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all
-> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all

A black box will appear on the screen -

then reply here and

Did you try that?

You will need to go into folder options and uncheck the hidden files and folders in order to see that file.

Other than that you should go through this Homegroup trouble shooter.

Back in the days of Windows 3.1 or 95, I kind of forget, I started simply setting the exact same user name and password on each of my home computers, then setting each computer's drive to be shared. I strongly doubt this is the correct way, and now with one of my computers running Windows 10 which does not even allow me to use a common user name but forces an email address, I guess the days of doing things wrong need to be gone.

Can anyone direct me to a good resource that VERY simply will show me step by step how to set each computer's settings so I can access the computers, drives, directories and files? And by "access" I should state I mean Full Access -Read, Write, Create, Delete and anything else one might wish to do?

Thank-you very much!

After installing the Anniversary Update on my Surface Pro, every time I try to access a network resource that needs credentials, before the login pop-up comes up, explorer will crash. Every time.
If I manually add the credentials through Control Panel, then I can connect without issue. It only occurs when I do not have credentials stored for the resource. I tried "resetting" my Surface, which involves reinstalling Windows, and I still get the issue.
This is such an odd thing - is anyone else seeing this?
