Updates on Local Network

Q: Updates on Local Network

If I have three computers on local network and only one has internet access will this update all machines on local network?

Preferred Solution: Updates on Local Network

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.)

A: Updates on Local Network

Yeah - this is a great option. It does not entirely stop getting stuff from internet as it is basically a torrent system, but is much faster and much reduces download demand

A torrent system basically extacts bits of a file from multiple sources, so each serving pc does not have to upload whole file (uploading usually being slower than downloading), and receiving pc glues it all together again. So you might get 5 pcs uploading a fifth each of the file at the same time, and pc can download all five parts simultaneously as download is usually several times faster than upload. It actually works in much smaller increments, but the principle is the same.

I always update my fast pc first, leaving my other slower devices switched off. Then I turn on other devices, and you see the hdd flicking away as it serves the updates to the other devices.

Do not enable last option as it will 'steal' bandwidth from you.

With the setting as shown on the attached screen shot, does the PC send updates to other PCs directly through router without passing through internet, i.e. does this setting save internet data volume?

A:Send updates to PCs on my local network

Yes, if you keep this setting enabled your computers will act as a update cache for your other Windows 10 devices and it will reduce internet usage.

Hello I'm currently in the process of testing deploying IE in setup XML - file File Local Enterprise Local List Network, IE11 Manager or HTTP, Site our environment and I've begun testing on the IE Enterprise Site List manager I've read that there are a few different ways to configure the XML file to apply via GPO IE11 Enterprise Site List Manager XML file setup - HTTP, Local Network, or Local File per the article below nbsp HTTP Local Network Local File https technet microsoft com en-us library Dn aspx In my isolated testing I've chosen to use the local file method which is very easy to setup and use on a testing machine It looks like we have the flexibility to choose how we apply the XML file and I was curious what the best options are and why nbsp Also are there examples of each setup being used and the benefits downsides to each Here's the options that I can see using HTTP - setup an IIS website to host the XML file Local Network UNC - setup a UNC path on our DFS where we store the current XML file and users would have read only access to that location Local File - We could just deploy the XML file via SCCM package application when updates to the list are required Could anyone please point me towards some articles etc explaining the pro's and cons of these methods and why I might want to choose one over the other nbsp I'm leaning towards just using a DFS share and option because it doesn't require us to maintain an IIS site for it but I am curious to hear if there might be any downsides to this method or benefits to going with another method Thanks

This sounds really noobie of me but is it possible to improve local network transfer speed by adding a 2nd network card. I was planning to connect one exclusively for lan transfers and another one hooked to a separate wireless router.

Right now only a maximum of 3 users can stream SD videos off the PC before it gets a little choppy.

The pc in question runs on windows 7 and it's board has built in gigabit, I happen to have a spare gigabit card.

A:Will adding a 2nd network card improve local network transfer speed

That won't really help the way you are describing the problem, although adding access points will help with streaming to wireless devices.

Although there is a setting in Group Policy that allows you to use two connections at the same time, I don't believe it will help in this situation.

I've done many HD movie streaming tests on my system.

I can stream from my media PC to at least 7 other machines at the same time, 4 wired, 3 wireless, plus my TV, and have no problems at all, no skipping, no freezing, even with the same movie in the same place or with 8 different movies at once, my TV is connected to my media center PC so counts as the 8th one.

This is Gb LAN, and 300Mbps wireless but even the 65Mbps limited laptop has no problem.

I'm not really sure why you are seeing these limitations but it may be the router.

HI,

I have installed server 2003 on a small network and created a domain that is the same as the public domain name (ie the companies website).

This is now causing a problem because when i type in the public address (for example www.company.com) it is trying to resolve it locally - because the local domain name is also company.com.

Does anyone know if there is a way to get round this problem?

Many thanks in advance

Dave
 

A:problem with the local network having the same domain name as the public network

add 'local.' to the internal domain or change it altogether.

Your public domain should not have any connection into your private infrastructure,
but you may have references from private->public; not very common.

I run a small stand-alone network that has no connectivity to the internet. I currently download Microsoft updates and antivirus dats from an internet connected pc, burn them to a cd then copy them to one of the computers on the stand-alone network. I then "pull" the updates manually from each machine on the stand-alone network.

Is there a way to configure these XP boxes to look to a certain local location for updates?

Any help would be appreciated.

can anyone think of something to sort it out?

A:Any way to point Windows Updates to a local directory?

Hello!

Unfortunately, this is much easier said than done. It is possible, and I have written a few program scraps to prove viability, and early results are good for this being possible (very simply, ask Windows Update to perform a search for updates, but download only (this is very easy to do), scrape the SoftwareDistribution folder, and implant onto another computer (and before you try, you CANNOT just drop in this folder - it requires using parts of the contents etc. etc.))

So it does appear to be possible for a program (but not a human unless you have a very good knowledge of the SoftwareDistribution folder)

However, demand for such a program is not great, and I have only a limited amount of time to program. I literally have 27 programs for Windows Update bits and bobs which I want to make. Sadly I do not have the time for all of these, or this one. (Currently I am making an automated fixing tool for the 0x800B0100 error code, and a tool to automate certain procedures in the registry which are too complicated (and dangerous) for an average poster to perform)

The only thing you can use to simplify downloading is WSUS Offline: WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection

However, you will need to invest in all of the updates, so watch your downloading total.

I am really sorry that I could not be of more help, but unfortunately, this program is not going to be made

I've had this happen on a couple machines and a couple printers. A local printer is installed and working correctly. After installing some windows updates, all of a sudden the local printer won't print.

On one computer, the print queue shows the print job in the queue, spools and then prints successfully, but never actually physically prints.

On another computer, the print jobs that originally sent to the local printer, get re-directed to some other network printer.

I've already uninstalled and re-installed the printer with the latest drivers.

It is my understanding that if they return to their PC and see that an admin was logged in, they just needed to change it to their user name and password and everything's fine...?? YES or NO ???

The fastest way -- FTPDMIN: Minimal ad-hoc file transfer Windows FTP server Windows 7 will alert you that it's listening on the FTP ports but that's what you want right? Make note of the IP address it's listening on and make sure that's the address on your local network you want.

You'll have to do something called "split-tunneling" to access both the internet and LAN.

the problem with not updating vista is it leaves your operating system wide open to attack , thats exactly how conficker spread. An unpatched OS can make your firwall and AV next to useless

why dont you set your updates so they are not automatic , then pick the updates to install , install them one at a time run your pc for a while each time until you find the offending update

Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router. Then reset it to factory defaults and reconfigure it. (Make sure you know the important settings before starting this procedure.)

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Hey Chris (I'm assuming your name is Chris from the IP settings...),

Let me be the first to welcome you to Vista X64 forums.

It looks like your router/modem does not have DHCP enabled (or it has a MAC Address filter in place.) Do you know how to edit your router's settings? If not, your ISP may need to do it from their side.

I would like to thank you one hundred ten percent for posting this information from the get-go. It makes our lives so much easier when information is posted in this manner.

It looks like when your computer is set to DHCP/Automatic IP, your router is not giving the PC an IP address. If I'm not mistaken, the 169.254... IP addy is an APIPPA address (Automatic Private IP Address). This address is used by Windows when it is looking for an address but the router it's connected to does not want to give it one.

This either means your router has DHCP disabled, or your router has a "filter" on it baring all but a specific set of MAC Addresses/computer names from connecting to it.

A:remotely use vlc on local network

Which is it, local network or one network to another and if the latter, is it via the Internet or still local?

Remote on a local network is a snap. After assigning a static local I.P. to all server machines if you haven't already (not needed if you use machine name instead), share the folders you want to serve and just open them across the network.

If am trying to share files / printer between to Win 7 computers on the same network. From one of the computers neither the homegroup or the network will work. I can see the other computer in the homegroup but I can't access the files.

With network, it tells me the network provider name is invalid. I will not even allow me to access the network folders on the local machine.

The machine has a single administrator account. I think that there is something wrong with the administrator privileges, but I am not sure what.

I have tried most of the things mention in this forum to right the problem, but nothing works. There was a suggestion to scan the system files for corrupted or broken files. It writes a log file at the end of this process. I couldn't examine the file because there is something wrong with my administrator privileges.

So HELP please.

Hi there,

If you're sure that the Homegroup in your network is setup correctly try creating a new account as Administrator from the problematic computer and see if you're able to access the shared network resources. Compare the ipconfig/all output of this computer to another working computer. If there's any discrepancies please post both ipconfig/all output in your next post.

The account you logon your machine has to exist on the replaced machine. Same name same password. You also need to have file and print sharing enabled as well as the windows firewall set to allow file and print sharing. Than you will have access without being asked for a password.

Good morning, I connect at home wirelessly with no issues using W7 Ultimate on my Fujitsu laptop. I don't really understand all the different types of network but currently I share with no one, and under the network settings it states 'Home Network' and then 'Ready to Create.'

I was away for work recently at another site and they have an open wi-fi for visitors to use on non-work laptops, so it's passworded but other than that, it's totally unrestricted.

When I tried to connect it found the wi-fi network with full strength but would not identify and connect - the password was okay as I when I tried an incorrect one, it stated just that.

Do I need to do something different with regards to grouping/network etc or could the fault have possibly been with them?

Thanks - Blue

A few days later I upgraded my desktop PC which is connected to the router with a cable from XP Media Edition to Windows Vista Home Premium.

Now, when I turn on my new laptop it will only connect to my wireless network "locally" and not connect to the Internet.

Nothing has changed with my router.

Hello,

I'm puzzled as to how "add a local printer" and "add a network, wireless or bluetooth printer" are different.

Under "Add a local printer", I can use an existing port or create a new port, under which I can set a TCP/IP address to connect to shared printer over network. What's the difference between existing port and new port? How is this port local when I can set IP address to printer shared over network?

And how does "add a network, wireless or bluetooth printer" function differently than the former? I'm trying to distinguish the nature between the two so I can get a better understand for troubleshooting purposes. I appreciate any help.

I cannot ping one wired computer to the other, both computers can ping the router and both can ping loopback (127.0.0.1)

Why cant they ping eachother? I have had this network setup and running before, now i have updated both motherboards in both wired computers and reinstalled windows on both aswell. They used to communicate perfectly and when i went to setup the network they could already ping eachother so i never had a problem. any suggestions?

If they are both accessing the internet through the same router an inability to ping is almost always a firewall issue.

Hi
I got a new laptop because my old one was fried by the weather! But now when I try to connect to the network, I can only access the internet and I want to know how I can get my shared folders,which is on the one network computer (which is the main one) to show on "my network places"

I'm using windows XP
 

A:Cant connect to local LAN network

You first have to get the computers on the same network (e.g., connected to the same router). Then you need to enable file and printer sharing; here is a wizard way.

Run the Network Setup wizard (found in Control Panel of XP). Tell it each of your computers connects to the internet via "residential gateway" and that you want to enable file and printer sharing. Create a disk at the end only if you have a Windows PC other than XP or 2k Pro or Vista.

Windows XP firewall (if SP2 or SP3) will be properly configured by the wizard. You must uninstall or properly configure any 3rd party firewalls on each machine. Unique computer names and same workgroup, of course.

The Shared Documents folder is automatically shared. Any other folders (or drives) or printers you want to share, just right click on them and sharing ... . When sharing a printer, accept the offer to load other drivers if your other PCs have different Operating System(s).

When you first go into My Network Places there will be nothing there. The first time you click on 'View Workgroup computers' will probably result in great disappointment. It takes awhile (up to 15 minutes) before all the computers in the workgroup get up-to-date and accurate lists of the other computers. Often you can speed up this process via Search for other computers.

When computers show up in My Network Places, double click on one to see its shares. If that includes a printer, you can right click on the printer to connect to it.

Hi I have sbcglobal dsl using a speedstream I have a hub between my desktop running Win k and the router My computer can access the internet with the IP settings quot Obtain IP address on IP network conflicts local automatically quot and quot obtain DNS server automatically IP conflicts on local network quot When we attach another computer on the network we get IP address conflicts on both computers The other computer is a work laptop running XP so the settings are not same as the desktop above but it can access the network as long as it booted with the ethernet connected Just to be clear each computer can access the internet only when the other computer is off Any idea what the problem might be We d also like to attach wireless network access for the laptop Edit in ------- I was looking at my modem config and saw the following set to PPP is on the modem ---------------------------------------------------------------- following copied from modem setup screen PPP Location WARNING Changing these settings may interfere with your ability to connect to the Internet PPP is on the modem This is the normal mode for this modem when connected to a single computer In this mode the PPP session is initiated from the modem Gateways and routers should work in this mode but their configuration may have to be changed to do so e g you may need to have the gateway router IP address changed to PPP is on the computer This mode is normally used if you need to run a PPPoE client on your PC This mode can be used with a gateway or router which initiates a PPPoE session To return to the DSL modem user interface you will need to directly connect your PC to the modem without any gateway or router between the modem and the PC Bridged Mode PPPoE is not used This mode must be used if you are connecting to a non-PPPoE network ------------------------------------------------- I remember whn I wanted home networking from an indepedant ISP many years ago i had to ask for a set number of IP adresses so perhaps I have to upgrade the service Thanks PS The router package that comes with sbc dsl is dismal No manual for the speedstream and no explaination on how to attach several computers I guess they want you to order a networking quot kit quot which presumably is just a hub and a few cables nbsp

A:Local network issue

You've lost me a little if the two networks are connected why don't you just rewire it so there is one big network. Do you think you could supply a network diagram of your current network? Then we can work out what you need to do.

Is there a command prompt command to run a file within a network? Such as shutdown -i [localip] etc..

A:Run a file within a local network

One does not "run a file". Open can "open" a file, but that's executing an application and telling it to open that file.

Perhaps if you were more specific about what you mean.

Go into your Network And Sharing Center (either through Control Panel or right-click on the network icon at bottom right and select)
Your network name should be declared here as Private - if not, you can click "customize" and put it as Private

I have just up dated four of our computers to windows 10 and set up a wifi network between the 4 computers without too many problems.
However I have a problem with a local connection from my main pc (windows 10) to a pc which runs in parallel (pc on windows xp) they are linked by ethernet cable. When I boot the machines in the morning windows 10 displays an icon with the xp pc and all works fine. Later on in the day the xp pc icon has disappeared but working on the xp machine it is still possible to link to the windows 10 machine.
My question is once the icon has disappeared of the windows 10 pc how can I re-establish to link? It appears that the link still exists but I can't access it.

A:local network 10 to xp ethernet

Confusing setup.

When the icon disappears, trying typing the ip of the machine into explorer.

Like this:

Code:
\\192.168.1.178\
or
\\10.0.0.28\
If that don't work, open an admin command prompt and enter this command to see if the other machine shows up

Code:

Hi-

I am hoping someone has run across this and can offer some advice
My printing worked fine up till a few weeks ago.
I have removed and unintalled the printers, drivers and packages.
Rebooted my laptop
Went to vendor website and downloaded latest drivers
Installed printer first as local LPT1 with the latest drivers from previous step
added port, a TCP/IP port and provided the static IP address reserved for this printer.

When I try to print a test page it sends to printer and after about a minute the print queue
will show "error printing" and that is it.

Print spooler is set to automatic and started
no other jobs are in print queue at time I send the test page

Thanks in advance for any help, tom

Hi everyone,

I have a problem. One of the computers here at work can't log into the network. When I click O:\ Drive it gives me an error saying "Local device in use". This has happend before in the past. The problem was one of the tech guys hooked up a laptop and put a IP address that someone already using, so they put a different IP Address for the laptop. But the computer still could not get into the network drive. Eventually the problem was resolved but I was not here to see it done.

I already checked the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) properties and everything looks ok.

Does anyone has a resolution for this?

Whenever I try to look at a win2000 pc from another pc, I am asked for a password to access the computer. I have not set up ANY passwords on one of the 2000 pc's(administrator included) and on the other, as far as I know, the only password is for the user to login.

There is not a server in the network I am talking about.

In my home I use Windows 7 Pro 64bit on my desktop and Windows 10 on my laptop. I have a QNAP NAS.

I am the administrator for both and have set all permissions for NAS, all PC drives, folders and files to read/write. I have set all folders so that I am the owner. Netbios is set over TCP/IP.

My router has reserved IP addresses for all devices. The same user names and passwords are used for all computers and the NAS. Workgroup is used not Homegroup. My PC has a 1GB network card.

The laptop can access the PC and the NAS folders and files by Wireless but when try to LAN access the laptop or NAS from my PC I get the network password message. Entering the same user name and password is not accepted.

I have shares set for all drives and media folders.

What can I try to fix this?

Hi guys!

Simple question: why does a shortcut to an exe on a network-drive display differently from one on my local drive?

It's the same file, but the network ressource version looks FUBAR, while local version is pretty nice.

Perhaps more to the point: any hints on changing it. The particular exe is compiled with an ico containing: 48x48 px, 32x32 px, 16x16 px (all in xp, hicolor, 16 colors). It looks like windows is displaying the 16x16 px version, and then resizing it, and perhaps adding a dash of ugly.

Hope you can help

Hello I have Vista and running a wireless nic on my desktop machine I'm connecting to a router above my flat with permission and Wireless! Identified Network, Only, Local have problems until now My computer was running fine for years until recently my first hard drive starting disappearing I have hard drives C D and E My C drive is where my XP install is on my D drive is where my Vista install is on and my E drive is all my storage like games etc Recently my sound on my C drive starting causing my games to stutter both graphically and in sound It was to the point where any sound in windows XP would crack stutter or screw up Besides that issue I tried all that I could to fix it and moved on to my D drive with Vista until I figured it out Today my C drive just disappeared all together My first impression is that it's going bad obviously I jumped on my C drive XP to check it out and now my C drive wont even load without many restarts I can only assume the C drive is about to pop and I should try to save as much data as possible before I wipe to reinstall Soon after that my Vista machine starts lagging It's trying to pull certain files from the C drive which causes it to hang While moving programs from C to D drives I managed to also drop connection out of the blue The connection went from working to local only Now I've searching the interwebs high and low I can find many posts on this issue but none of them seem to relate to my issue My network is identified I can see the name and connect to it fine I don't have Nortons installed because I use Avast I have no installed anything recently that would affect my network The only programs I have installed recently was Thunderbird and a Office updates I've reinstalled my drivers and played around with the settings I'm now back to my original default settings and still no go I've even manually set my settings based on my netbook connected to the same router and still no go I've also tried roll backs and restores and still nothing Identified network home and local access only Now onto the weird part of this issue Local Only, Identified Network, Wireless! I have a netbook that can connect to the same router with basically the same settings just different wireless cards I use to share my wireless connection on my netbook until I brought a wireness card for my desktop I did the same I had full connection on my desktop for minutes until both my desktop and netbook went to local only My wife who also has a netbook was connected fine and could reconnect with the same wireless card as my netbook It seems whatever I connected to my desktop transcended onto my netbook and gave it the same local only identified issue I got the person above me to restart the router My netbook went online while connected to my desktop My desktop remained local only Soon after my netbook dropped off again to local only because it was still connected via wired line to my desktop pants I don't know what to make of this I'm backing up my C drive and will wipe my machine and try to go back down to hard drives for a fresh install Any help on why my issue the IDENTIFIED network while local access only is still there P S I did restart winsock and tcp

A:Local Only, Identified Network, Wireless!

Small update:

XP is still moving very slow on the C drive but I'm able to get on it and save data. Vista is now not loading and gets stuck at the boot screen. I checked out the hard drive on that end it's around 40% fragmented. So I'm trying to defrag and fix errors from XP.

I managed to move all of my data to my E Drive from C. I think I will just wipe both my C and D drives and get Windows 7.

My local only issues still exist and now my wife is offline with her netbook. The person above me is also experiencing the same issues and it seems to be with the router or connection. He is going to get help on it to see if he can resolve it. So it seems my local only issue is not relating to this issue at all.

I'm just wondering how my windows installations and hard drives could screw up. I'm thinking my Vista is not booting because of the core vista files being screwed from all my reboots. I'm also thinking both my XP and VISTA installs are related in some way and have screwed each other. Then again, I could just have a virus that Avast is not detecting.

I'm going to try my hardest to thorough scan all my drives after the defrag. If nothing improves then I will wipe C/D leaving E the same.

A:Local only but able to connect with unsecured network

The ethernet problem may be a defective cable or NIC or a mis-configured, corrupted or out-of-date non-Windows firewall or security suite.

The following was put together mostly by etaf with a little help from me.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Atheros AR5007EG & AR5007
We have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters for about a year, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and windows Vista.

The adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
--- Please post back here if that works or does not work.

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver." That apparently has worked for some posters.

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section, as some manufactures, appear to now have a working driver available.
Toshiba - update has worked for some PCs
HP The latest HP Atheros driver dated Sept 2010 has fixed the issue - so check the driver date, However, that does NOT apply to all HPs / Compaqs machines
- the poster did an online scan for driver updates on the HP website here HP Product Detection which resulted in a solution. Solved: Can't connect to internet wirelessly - Atheros AR5007 Wifi through Clear Comm - Tech Support Guy Forums

If you can post the Make and EXACT model of your PC here, along with the windows version you have and we will see if we can find the driver and will post a link as a reply here.

--- 3) On one occasion re-setting the router back to factory default and re-configuring the router settings has resolved the issue

--- 4) A few posters here with the same issue have found that the driver from this site ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows resolved the issue
Threads are here
Solved: Public Network - Access: Local Only (Please help!) - Tech Support Guy Forums
Solved: NetGear WNDR3700 Incompatibilty W/ Atheros AR5700 - Tech Support Guy Forums
Solved: Local connection only when connected to secured wirless - Tech Support Guy Forums
Solved: Unidentified Network - Tech Support Guy Forums
Unidentified Network
I do NOT know anything about the site mentioned ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows

However, if you do decide to try the driver, Please let us know the outcome

Direct link to the drivers are below
You only need to click on the green download button labelled " click to download " and wait, the file will download - you do not need to click on any other buttons to get the download started

AR5007
Vista 32 Bit
Drivers for Atheros AR5007 and Windows Vista
Although this driver has shown up in BSODs (Blue Screen Of Death) on Vista SP2 systems, usually conflicting with updated Vista OS drivers like netio.sys, tcpip.sys and other networking related drivers.

AR5007EG
Vista 32 Bit
Drivers for Atheros AR5007EG and Windows Vista
Assuming that after all the above the wireless still does not connect to the internet, all I can suggest is to use wireless security of WEP or to get an external USB wireless card.

You might also bug your laptop's tech support about the problem--maybe people can put pressure on Atheros to find a fix.

I have a high quality, but yet old Epson Expression 636 hooked up to my computer. It's not usb so I can't just do a usb wireless server or anything because it runs through a specific pci-card on my pcu. With this I don't know if it possible to be able to share the scanner usage with 10 other computers on the same workgroup or not. If anyone knows where to start I would GREATLY appreciate the help. Thanks a lot

A:Help with running a scanner through a local network

Hi

From what your saying I really don't think there is a way (using windows settings/utilities) to share the scanner. I think you may need to search through google for software that enables you to share devices such as your scanner.

Good Luck

Tom

A:FTP connects on server PC, but no other PCs on local network or from o

I guess this is a bump. Same problem here. No FTP sharing on local (home) network. Used to work. I did it a couple times a few months back just to test it and now that I want to map network drives to quickly transfer movies and tv shows to my htpc, suddenly it doesn't work.

I don't think it's SP1 related because a friend can still do it on his machine, running the same OS with SP1.
I tried all of the stuff you did already with no success.
I tried Control Panel > Troubleshooting > View all > Incoming connections
It reports an error that more than one device is performing NAT. So I took my modem out of the equation and still nothing.

Someone please help! this sucks. The only thing I have ftp access to is my old modded XBOX. ARGH!

Typing this command in the address bar "ftp://[email protected]"

Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Filezilla timeout
Windows explorer crashes and then gives me an error about typing something wrong or not having permission.

Hi So i have win PC via cable and win LAPTOPS and an ANDROID phone via timer? Local flush Network wifi on my local network i dont have homegroup set up and i set to connect with usernames and pws to folders shared with advanced sharing everything works fine and each device sees each other but after a period of time - minutes win stops sharing to be more precise it doesnt stop Local Network flush timer? sharing it just flushes inactive device that was connected to it for instance if i access shared folder on win from any other device on network it is available if i stream a movie and dont pause it it will be available till the end but if i pause the stream or if i stop browsing through folders it will become unavailable then i need to reconnect to my wifi from that device and i can access it again and i can keep access as long as i dont stop sending any kind of request over network this started to happen after i updated to win i had no problems on win is there some kind of flush timer that denies access to inactive device connected to my win pc after certain period of time i looked in local group policy but didnt see any timer that could be set i couldve missed it though i use my pc as some kind of media center for the network its the only device that is always on so imagine how its irritating when i scroll through larger folder looking which movie or song to play and when i find it it wont play it because that device lost access and i need to reconnect which means finding that movie song all over again i can bypass it by streaming anything while im making my choice but hey im really not into tricking my pc i want it to work as i want it not other way around skynetneveragain tnx

A:Local Network flush timer?

Most likely your Gateway is dropping the Lease, not the computers. Some of them see a computer in idle mode, so that it shuts down the connection between the network and the computer.

I have an HP laptop that I connect to the internet using a wireless Linksys router. I haven't had any problems with the wireless. I connected today via ethernet to the router. I received "Unidentified network...Local access only". I then rebooted the router and modem with the same result. I then connected the modem directly to the laptop with the same result(after rebooting the modem and computer).

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Ok so just recently I noticed that I my internet only says Local only. I can still access the internet though. I researched it online and there wasnt much help so I was wondering if I could find any info about it here. I attached a picture of the message it gives me. This happens on every wireless network I am on now. It is just kinda annoying because it looks like im local all the time in the taskbar.

A:[SOLVED] Network is Local but I have Internet, Why?

This is only a guess... Are you logging into a school network that requires you to install some software before connecting to the internet? Or do you need to log into a web page on your first use? Some schools use software to ID your computer hardware to grant you access, regardless of how Windows interprets your connection. As I said, that's just a guess.
