Computer on home network

Q: Computer on home network

Is there a way to hook up a computer to a home network without having that computer connected to the Internet. So the way my brother wants it setup is that his laptop has access to the internet (wirelessly). He wants to be able to share files between his laptop and desktop...but doesn't want his desktop to be connected to the internet. Is this possible?

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.)

Configure your desktop a static ip address and leave default gateway blank.

I have a home desktop computer, and a work laptop. Over the years I've changed laptops and home computers, and have always been able to get network sharing working so I can transfer files between them by using \\<hostname>

I've had my current setup for about 6 months now, and have been able to share files. Let's call my home computer "alien" and my work computer "laptop".

A couple of days ago, I found I was not able to connect to alien from laptop, but I could connect the other way. Also, alien can ping laptop, but NOT vice versa. alien has a static IP of 192.168.1.200, and laptop has an IP address of 192.168.1.8 via DHCP.

Any ideas about why laptop cannot ping alien (which would explain why I can't connect to it)?

You may want to disable the antivirus software for testing. With the ping not working it would seem like something is blocking the connection. Do the machines appear in the network folder under network?

Obviously you should make sure that Network Discovery and File and Printer sharing are turned on in the Advanced Sharing settings.

Make sure they are on the same Workgroup etc. and that file sharing is enabled through the sharing tab >Advanced Sharing> of the C:>Users folder.

My husband and I have a home network set up with two laptops. His is a Dell Inspiron 8100 and mine is a Dell Inspiron XPS. I run Windows XP Pro and his runs Windows XP Home.
Router is a Lynksys WRT400N Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless-N Router
Modem is a Motorola SB6120 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 eXtreme Broadband Cable Modem

We upgraded our modem & router a few months ago and haven't been able to get the 8100 to see the XPS, however the XPS can see the 8100. Before the upgrade both computers could communicate just fine and we were able to get into each others "My Documents" folders. I'm sure it's probably something simple, but have no idea how to fix this. We need to get it resolved quickly because we store all of our college documents on my computer, and my husband needs to be able to access them. Classes start on Tuesday! HELP!

I have two computers connected to the Internet through a router. For two years I had no problem accessing files from one pc to the other. Two weeks ago I noticed that PC2 could not access PC1 anymore, the error said something about the resource being unavailable or something like that. I did not mind it much because I mainly use it for storage and I could still access PC2's content from PC1. Then a couple of days ago I tried to look into the problem to see if I could fix it. I ran the network wizard on PC1. Now PC2 doesn't see PC1 at all, and when I try to access the workgroup on PC1 it says it's not accessible or I might not have rights to use this network resource.

Both computers have XP Home Edition with SP2 installed on them.

Thank you in advance for your help.

First off, PC cleaner Pro isnt an antivirus, its simply a menace if you got it from a trusted source such as download.com/cnet, and if it actually does anything it claims to, even the legit program will screw up your computer. If yours is claiming its an antivirus, it isnt. IT IS a virus. PC Cleaner is the name of a Misleading Application (rogue software) designed to display false information, such as claiming your system is infected with malicious threats or other system errors. Misleading applications may also perform annoying actions or inconvenience the user in order to coerce them into purchasing software to remove the nonexistent threats or errors reported

Hi Everyone,

First time on here and really not that great with a pc.

I was looking at my network and I see a computer other then mine that I dont know who it is. It also has a different Ip address. When i run a whois search it come up with a place in Marina Del Ray, CA (I live on the other side of the country) A company called IANA. My virus protection isnt giving me the option of removing it. I have a cable modem and a Linksys wireless router

Any help would be great

A:Unknown computer on home network

What were you using to "look at your network"? Do you have a router? is it wireless?

Internet Assigned Numbers Authority = IANA

It is a legitimate company and you shouldn't worry about seeing it on your network.

I am trying to set up a home network that was previoulsy working fine until I added a new computer to it. Now it says I cannot access one computer becasue I dont have access rights. I am listed as administrator on every computer. Sometimes I can see one computer but never can I see all three. I have three computers all using XP and a Belkin Wireless router. 2 are wired and the third which is rarely used can go wireless as well. It is the new desktop that is casuing the problems. Does anyone have a clue why I am not allowed to set this network up and access my own computer?

A:Adding another computer to home network

Humm::Not much to go on here
So,let's get some basics.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

&#8226; Have you tried to do a system restore to before the problem occurred?
&#8226; If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
&#8226; For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
&#8226; For wireless laptops, have you made SURE the wireless switch is on?
&#8226; For wired connection issues, have you booted in Safe Mode with Networking to see if that changes the symptoms?
&#8226; Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
&#8226; If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Give us as much info as you can>Ipconfig /all and pings are very important info for us.

Hi All,

I have a problem with a computer on my home network in a Workgroup. I can make the computer appear using the search function or using the "View Workgroup Computers" under Network Tasks, but when I click on it to try to see the shares, i get an error message:

I have 2 computers using Win XP. I use a KVM switch. I have an AT&T dsl router connection using a single computer. If I want to share a printer with my other computer I could set up a Home Net work. Would that cause my first computer to slow down? Would
if cause my computer to hang up or slow down if I do not turn the second network
computer on? I don't allways have them on at the same time.
How do I set up a home network to avoid problems?

Thank you,
 

A:Will a home network slow my computer down?

You get an inexpensive Ethernet print server to allow the printer to be independent of either machine.

A:Adding a computer to a Home network

Carl606,
I would like to help, but I need to know a few more things about how your network is setup. You said "XP and a Vista computer on a home network", how do you have this setup? Are you using a router/switch? Did you setup Windows Networking and/or HomeGroups between the two machines? Are both machines in the same room and wired to the network or wireless?

If you already have a network, then just add the Windows 7 to the same "Workgroup" and you should be able to at least see the other machines from there.

The tricky part is sharing and then connecting to the other machines, especially connecting to the W7 box from XP.

If you can reply with some more info, I believe you will get an answer quickly.

I am currently trying to set up an old machine on Windows XP as a wireless network machine for my house. The purpose of this machine is to always be on and to stream music and videos to our laptop and dvd/media player.

The area I am struggling with is getting the laptop to talk to the network machine. The laptop is running Windows 7 and has detected the network machine, however, when I clicked on the icon to connect to it, it asked me for a user name and password.

I haven't set up a user name or password for the network on the network machine.

Any help would be greatfully received.

A:Cannot access Vista computer on home network

My first thought would be the firewall on the Windows Vista pc is blocking access to it. To turn it off, see this link.I would do this as a test. If it works, turn the firewall back on and we will find exactly which policy/policies are blocking access. If it still doesn't work, we'll look elsewhere.

A:Cannot log into home network computer: name or password wrong

To access the machine using the user account 'Family' you would enter the following at that prompt:

SHAWN-PC\Family

Then enter the password for that account on the old machine.



   Tip
It is advised to use an Administrator account when providing credentials. For example Family should be a system Administrator


My apologies if I misinterpreted your problem. You could remove all authentication procedures by going to network and sharing centre > Change Advanced Sharing Settings and then turning off Password Protected Sharing

A:Home network not sharing folders with one computer.

I had the same problem, kept trying to figure out why. 24 hours later it just worked. Someone with more knowledge might know the answer, for me it just needed time.

Check this too:

HomeGroup uses IPv6 for multicast discovery. If you get error code 0x80632094 when you try and enter a valid password, then check that the IPv6 protocol is checked in the NIC properties. Network and Sharing Center, Change adapter connections, right-click and examine Properties for IPv6. You could also try this registry method:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters\

Add a DWORD, DisabledComponents with a value 0xffffffff, this disables all IPv6 components. Restart the computer now edit 0xffffffff to 0. This enables IPv6.

A:Is Network Access Protection necessary on home computer?

No there is no need to, then again if the machines cannot 'talk' to each other it is a moot issue and besides it cannot really be enforced in a Workgroup or Homegroup, unless it is a built in feature of your router.

I recently had to re-install Win 7 Home Premium on my desktop computer. In the setup, it apparently chose to join "Network," which is not the name of the network it was on prior to the reinstall. My laptop is on that other network, which for this discussion I'll call "Something 4". I know I can change the name of the desktop computer's network to match that, but I believe that really has no effect on what network it is actually on. All of this matters because in the current configuration the laptop cannot attach to a virtual hard drive on the desktop computer. Both computers are on the same workgroup and home group. Any help will be very much appreciated.

A:Cannot get computer to join proper home network

You are correct, the network name on the local machine is irrelevant.

Where/what the network is connecting to is important. Is you system connected to the same access point as previously? If you have switched from wireless to wired or are using a mixture of network types, you will need to ensure the router is including both the wireless and wired networks on the home network.

Once you can ping the host from the client you can map a network drive. I usually turn off simple filesharing for this purpose.

Can anyone help me network my two home computers?

One is connected to a wireless network through a router; the other is connected to the router via ethernet cable (its wireless adapter isn't working; that's a problem for another thread!)

The laptop's network has a different name from the wireless network. How can I get them on the same network without having to hardwire the first computer or buy a new wireless card for the second?

Both are running Windows 7. Should be easy but I'm stumped.
 

A:Home network: one wired computer, one wireless

Well, if you want both to eventually be hooked up wirelessly, then I'd suggest that we attempt to fix the other computer's "wireless issue" first. But if you don't want to do that, then here are the steps I'd suggest for now:

Open Network and Sharing Center by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type network, and then click Network and Sharing Center.
Click Set up a new connection or network.
Click Set up a new network, and then click Next.
The wizard will walk you through creating a network name and a security key. If your router will support it, the wizard will default to Wi&#8209;Fi Protected Access (WPA or WPA2) security. We recommend that you use WPA2, if possible, because it offers better security than WPA or Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) security. With WPA2 or WPA you can also use a passphrase, so you don&#8217;t have to remember a cryptic sequence of letters and numbers.

To connect your laptop or desktop computer to your wireless network, follow these steps:
Open Connect to a Network by right-clicking the network icon ( or ) in the notification area.
In the list of networks, click the network that you want to connect to, and then click Connect.
Enter the security key. You can either type in the key or insert a USB flash drive that contains the security key into a USB port on the computer.
NOTE: YOU WILL HAVE TO DISCONNECT FROM YOUR CURRENT CONNECTION IN ORDER TO SET UP A NEW ONE. ONCE YOU'VE DONE THIS, THE SETUP SHOULD BE RELATIVELY STRAIGHT FORWARD.

If you have any questions or need more assistance in setting up a new wireless connection, let us know.

A:How can I get full privileges to a computer on my home network

It's a big security risk to share an entire drive which is one of the reasons it's not easy to accomplish. You would be better off just sharing the User folder instead.

But if you insist on sharing the entire drive there is a way to do that also but you need to use the Security tab for that one.

Open My Computer -> right click Local Disk D,C which ever -> select Properties -> select Security tab -> click Edit button -> click Add button -> enter the name of the User you want to set Security permissions (it is the same user name you've set the sharing permissions for, ex.
Choosing Everyone will set the read-write permissions to every user which will attempt to connect to your shared drive) -> click OK -> select the desired permissions -> click OK -> wait while permissions are set -> and your Done.

Windows says Network Controller hasn't got a driver. When it tries to install it - fails.

Details: Driver updates aren't automatically installed when detected by Windows Update .

Below that shows computer name and version 6.1 amd64

I have contacted the seller and he said to go to the Gigabyte board which I did but cant see this and also have no idea how to install a driver. I also checked on the thread where all motherboard drivers are listed. Didn't see anything worded as a Network Controller driver.

Previously I always used Driver Genius Pro to install drivers but seller told me all of these type of programs for cleaning or registry or changing are dangerous. Thing is they do the job and install them never gave me a problem on my Dell PC which had only 512mb and told too old to update. Cheaper to buy new one.

Problem also is windows keeps trying to install it.

I have a home network with two computers. Both comps have Win7 64. The network permission settings that I can find are correct on both computers.

I followed the instructions on this link below even though it is for vista, as it was the closest thing I could find. All goes well but when I do the last step of dragging and dropping the folder or try to simply copy and paste the folder to the folder in the other computer, it simply puts a shortcut in the destination folder which does not even work. It does not copy the folder and I have no idea why. I am obviously missing something and any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Because they aren't really designed for copy and paste per say. You should be using the User folders for copy and pasting of files.

Disconnect the printer and move it to the XP machine it normally connects to and make sure that it's configured as a shared printer.
Open the Printers and Faxes folder on the Vista machine, right click on the printer and select properties.
Create a new Local Port for this printer with a name of the full network path name to the shared printer, i.e. \\computer_name\printer_name.

Turning off Network discovery should prevent the other machines from seeing those machines on the network.

If you only want one file shared on one of the Homegroup machines then turn off Network discovery on all the other machines then for each folder you need to hide choose "Share With" then "Stop Sharing".

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!

I have been trying to set up a homegroup to share between a desktop and two laptops. After many attempts I got the two laptops to work by removing guest from "deny access to this computer from the network" in the local security settings. Both of the laptops were running windows 7 professional. Unfortunately my desktop is running windows 7 home premium which doesn't have the local security settings option. So my question is can I remove the guest account from "deny access to this computer from the network" in windows 7 home premium through some interesting bit of registry editing or something? I really don't want to upgrade to professional if possible.

You shouldn't need to remove guest from anywhere in order to set up a Homegroup. It appears as if you are working around another problem.

Most Homegroup problems can be solved by going through the Homegroup trouble shooter.

A:Password required for access to Win2K computer in home network

It sounds like your trying to connect to the administrative share on the 2K machine. Try this.

Right click on the drive in question on the 2K machine and select Sharing... Add a new share and grant access rights to everyone.

Create an account on the 2K machine with the same name/password as is used to logon to the W98 machine. It's not necessary to logon to the 2K machine with this account, it just has to have permission to access the shared files.

This should eliminate the password prompt.

A:Dafult boot for Home Network ""this is a home computer..."

One it is because you are switching back and forth between two different networks. Second Windows Firewall is borked. You may have to open a Command Window and run sfc /scannow . To see if that fixes it.

Can you stop a computer from hogging the Internet connection on a small home network? This must be a very common network problem. (Of course if there is only one computer accessing the net at the time there is no reason that it shouldn’t use all the bandwidth.)

Any suggestions?

Have DSL and for brower-Use Internet Explorer- WinXp , Netgear router and Earthlink as my provider. It's getting where half the time I cannot connect to the internet, Page not found.

I go thru all the steps:

Reboot computer
unplug and replug DSL Modem
unplug rand replug router
use command line and entering ipconfig, ping ipconfig, etc
use command line to renew and release network

Half the time one of the above steps gets me in and sometimes not.

I called tech support and they say they cant help me be/c my router was not bought thru them. If I disconnect my network , they will be able to help me but then, my configurations would be changed and I replace one problem with another.

Any Ideas what could be happening? Any help is appreciated.

Just a thought - if running Kaspersky Internet Security (with inbuilt firewall) check that your Internet connection in the settings is set to Home or Private Network vs Public.

I did not set up my pc's to share over my home wireless network, but suddenly today I see that all drives and the printer are available between each computer. I had tried to set up the computers to share months ago, but never got it to work and gave up.

The desktop is old, running WinME, one laptop is running WinXPpro, the other laptop is running Vista. They are all connected to a Westell router/dsl modem for internet through Verizon.

So, I turn the desktop off daily. Today I go to turn it off and it says the WinXP laptop is connected and do I really want to shut down. I go to windows explorer on both machines and sure enough I have access to the other drives on each computer. I start the Vista machine and see the same.

Am I compromised?
 

A:MY home computers suddenly sharing over home wireless network

If you didn't make the change to share all drives, then somebody did. I would assume the worst. Time to reformat and reinstall.

Windows ME is past end of life, and no security updates are provided by MS. I wouldn't run it anymore. Maybe you'd want to try out some linux distros, some are quite good on old hardware. See this review:
http://www.linux.com/feature/52134

It seems you don't have a separate router, I would advise you to get one. I have a modem/router too but I also have a separate hardware firewall/router. The modem/router does NAT but I constantly see connections/attacks making it past the modem/router to my firewall. Having a separate router is a good thing.

Since you are using wireless, did you enable the encryption? If you have WPA or WPA2 use them and setup a long and complicated passphrase. Use WEP if you have no other choice cause WEP can be broken into real quick. You must enable encryption because with wireless, all your machines are sitting ducks when you have close range attackers, whereas with wired, at least you still have a perimeter which you can fortify with a firewall. Also it is especially important to have software firewalls on Each PC when using wireless.

Hi,
I have a wireless network in my home, which consists of 4 computers. My problem is that 2 of the computers dont seem to see each other, while the others see all the computers.

For the sake of illustration I will number the computers 1,2,3,4

1 sees 2 and 3 but not 4
2 sees all
3 sees all
4 sees 2 and 3 but not one.

I have pinged between 1 and 4 and they see each other this way.

They used to see each other until unit 1 needed a new harddrive, and since being restored, i am having this problem.

computer 1 is an xp machine, while the others are win98.

Thanks for any help.

Help,
I had to reformat my computer and am using windows 7 pro 64 bit. After getting Windows 7 back onto my computer, I was trying to use my home network to pass file between my desktop and to the a laptop. It wouldn't let me do either. I then looked at network sharing and it showed that neither my home network or home group was there. So I tried to set up another home group, and it gave me the following error:

"Must have IPv6 to create or join a home group".

When I go and try to start my IPv6 through the trouble shooter, it shows being started, but it still will not let me either join or create a home group.

Any ideas????? I hope this explanation is clear enough.

So i'm having an issue connecting my desktop to my home network for file sharing. My Desktop is connected to the internet like so: Desktop ->(Ethernet cable)-> Uverse 2wire router -> Internet.

I have no issues with my internet connection, and in fact I am posting this from my desktop now. Windows Network Diagnostics finds no issues when I run the trouble shooter. and when I try to connect to a home group it refers me to the network issue.

This issue has plagued me for about 6 months now. I have talked to Uverse tech support, and many of my friends who are into computers and have gotten no answers. Computer is running windows 7 SP1 and again the router is the Uverse 2wire router

How can I make my desktop available for network sharing?

Hi there, I use Wireless internet for both my pc and laptop, and connect through my BT Homehub. But whenever I open the wireless connections tab, it always shows a Talk Talk Wireless option along with the BT one which I use (and sometimes a 3rd connection that is unknown to me).
I think my network is secure, as I have to put a network key in before it will connect to the internet on the PC, but when I connect to the internet on the laptop no key is required, (so unsure a bit now) but I just wanted to make sure that the Talk Talk connection and the other one that is showing, is not somebody who can see all of the files on either my pc or laptop.
Just wanted some advice really, to make sure I dont have anybody viewing my files etc. Thank you in advance.
