Q: [resolved] computers not getting on network

i have 150 or so computers at my school that i am tech at. some are getting on the internet some are not. it seemed as though the ones with sp2 weren't getting on and the one's without sp2 were but i found out that wasn't the case. however, one with sp2 that i checked the ip address on is way off. we have a range for workstation computers and this ip was way off. any ideas how i can fix this? i have not restarted the server. should i? please help me.

Preferred Solution: [resolved] computers not getting on 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: [resolved] computers not getting on network

i restarted the server and that didn't take care of the problem. now when i release the weird ip on the one computer it won't renew.

I ran through the Network Wizard again, and put in the address of my desktop computer and voila!, the icon came back. I'm not a tech wizard by any means, and didn't know what the address of my desktop computer looked like, but I found some hints online and tried them. Thanks for the help guys.

As the topic says, I'm having an issue where a computer on a network cannot see the other computer on the network.  It is able to connect to the internet, and I double-checked based on earlier threads and the network discovery IS ON.  This computer
is able to create a Homegroup and the other computer on the network is able to see the shared folders when it joins the homegroup, but I cannot create a homegroup on the
other computer and have this computer see it to join it.  The other computer sees this computer in Windows Explorer under Network, but as far as the problem computer is concerned, it is the only computer on the network.
Despite this, when I open up the Network Map, it shows both computers, the router, and the modem.

Anyone who has read my previous posts knows that when it comes to electronic equipment, I'm a complete IDIOT, so I'm begging for your help with this one...
I would like to connect my DVD player to my TV and VCR so that I can use both of them, and be able to use the VCR for recording as well as playback. I was wondering, do I just connect the imput/output on the DVD to the VCR instead of the TV, or is it more compicated. I'd appreciate any help I can get.
Thanks!!

PS- If it matters, I have no cable or satellite dish or anything, just a regular old antenna.

A:Windows XP Home "My Network Places" refusing to show network computers

You need to look at the dependency list for each service. In the case of Computer Browser, it's Workstation and Server.

Since Workstation is failing, that's probably the place to start.

Do you have WKSSVC.DLL in C:\Windows\system32? That's the workstation service, and it appears to be the missing module. I'd first try copying that from the installation disk, if it's missing, and then register it too by:

Start, Run, regsvr32 wkssvc.dll

If you can't find the DLL, you can run sfc /scannow to restore missing files.

A shortcut may be to download the file from DLL Dump and register it as described above.

A:Trying To Network My Computers

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.

I was browsing the internet, when all of a sudden it stopped (browser=Chrome) loading pages, and a pop up appeared saying there was an error, and 2 computers on my network were sharing the same IP address.

I don't have 2 pc's, just the one, and don't understand how this could happen. I did have a virus last week - Trojan.ADH.2 but do not know if that is related to this problem.

I closed my browser, and opened a cmd line and typed ipconfig /renew, then restarted my computer, and since then I have not had any problems I am aware of.

Does this mean I have a virus or mal/spy ware on my PC?

Hi,

I'm sure this is a simple problem, but I have a direct line from the school network into my flat. If I plug in my laptop to the school network through an ethernet cable, I can see all the other network computers and shared drives under 'Network' in explorer. When I connect the network to my own wireless router so I can have wifi in the flat, I can't see any of them under Network. Is there a way to make them visible so I can access shared drives and folders when using the wifi connection?

Hi there, I have had soo many problems with my network because the signal from my router could not reach to my computer with the external adapter installed. I Have tried linksys router with linksys adapter and still no go. I bought a new Belkin router which is a wireless pre-n router with 3 antennas instead of the two antennas that are on most routers. I am still using my kinksys adapters . The computer that I was having the problem with is 150 feet from the router in another building. My network is now working great, No dropped signal's and no problems on any computer. In the house where my main computer and router are setup I have a lot of electrical appliance's near by, Microwave/2.4 meg phone/Lights etc, and every thing works great.Check out the Belkin.
 

A:Network with three computers.

I have seen the opposite.. The Linksys connects where the belkin doesn't..

Different brand routers may show different performances due to the enviroment they are used in, the firmware of the router, the technology used, the sub channel of the wireless connection, and other various reasons.

Therefore, I see no reason to bad mouth linksys, or to set a preference here.. It's like a ATI vs Nvidia debate, it really depends on what works for you.

I'm glad you found something that works for you particular circumstances.

Hi there

Has the server blocked the SMB ports (445 etc). I assume you CAN connect to network drives on the server.

I think a lot of people are getting away from using NETBIOS or things like that to resolve host names.

A:Why all computers not on network?

Hi there,

Have you verified that Network Discovery is turned on?
Enable or disable network discovery

I'd check for a 3rd party firewall software installed if you have any. If you are using built-in Windows firewall make sure that Files/printer sharing is allowed.

It won't hurt to verify your current setup, please see this Tutorial.

How do i get all computers on one wifi network so i can see all of them and share files between them?

A:All my computers are on the same network but each one can't see others

If you had clicked on "public" rather than "home" when you were first connecting to the network you won't be able to see other devices.

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

A:can't network 3 computers

Here are some basic debugging steps to take first, you need to establish basic connectivity first and deal with any firewall issues.
Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:

COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Server
TCP/IP Netbios helper
Wireless Zero Configuration (XP wireless configurations)
WLAN AutoConfig (Vista wireless configurations)
Workstation

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.

If a service is not running, open it's properties and check the dependencies. Check each of the dependencies and see which one is preventing the service from running. Checking the event log is also a good idea here, there may be clues to what is failing.
All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Places (Network and Sharing Center in Vista), make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login. NOTE: Vista's default is to require a password on the account to enable file/print sharing.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing. You can open a command prompt as described above and type the following command: nbtstat -n. This will display the status of NetBIOS or indicate it's not configured.

A:My Network (8 computers)

The domain name Active Directory is asking has nothing to do with domain names on the internet. It is just a name you can give to your group of computers and how your computers know they belong to that group.

You don't need Active Directory or any of that Microsoft mumbo jumbo to share the internet connection and files between the computers. Ignore all this domain stuff, set all computers to belong to the same workgroup (so you can share files between computers). Your router can take care of sharing the internet connection.

Plug the switch to one of your router's local ports.
BTW my finger counting shows that you don't have enough ports in your switches to hold 8 computers.

I have two Win 7 computers on my wired network and 6 Win XP computers on this same network. This main computer was Win 7 and just upgraded to Win 10 in November. For a year this network has worked just fine, plug and play basically when I set it up, now after Christmas shutdown (2 weeks), I can't see any of the computers on this network. The only thing I can see is the media drive on a computer called 6Head2. All I really do is transfer files from this main computer out to those 8 other computers.

What is wrong with my computer? Network discover, file sharing all checked, network location was changed from Public to Private today by me. But it did work last year, even with the network location being public.

A:can't see other computers in network

Which PC has created the homegroup? Once the home group is created, have the other PC joined that homegroup with the password created by the PC that created the homegroup? Have you checked the settings for each PC to make sure that each is set to "turn on network discovery". Is the "turn on password portected sharing" been enabled/disabled. I find it easier to have all PC's have that set to disable while in the homegroup. Basically, the homegroup is a small network with in your home network strictly for file sharing.

A:How do I network two computers?

There are a few different things you can try. Are you wanting to just hook them both up to each other, or allow them both to access the internet?

If you are just wanting to hook them up together you can simply use a crossover cable to hook them up directly to the Ethernet ports.

But if you want to allow them both to access the internet you need to get a router. There are plenty of articles in TechSpot describing them thoroughly. Have a look around.

None of the other computers in my house can see me (4 others), but I can see them and transfer files to their computers. I used to have Norton Systemworks 2005, but I uninstalled that so I doubt it's firewalling me. I d/l'd AVG free and ZoneAlarm free versions and added the network IP range to allow it (which allowed me to see them, but not the opposite). Anyone know what it could be? Windows firewall is off.

Oh and we all have XP (Though I have Pro and I think everyone else has Home)

------------------
 

A:need help to network my computers

Go to Network properties and make sure TCP-> is bound to both network cards. Then double click on TCP/IP--> your network card and designate an IP address for each machine as follows:
1st machine - 192.168.0.1
2nd machine - 192.168.0.2
subnet mask 255.255.255.0

I assume you have a hub to connect both computers. This way you will have a TCP/IP network between both computers that can also share internet access. If you're going to use a gateway in order to connect the second computer to the internet, use the 192.168.0.1 address for that computer.

I can drop down the bar at the top and select the direct connection between the two computers but then it tells me...

"Windows cannot create the network map because the network type is set to public. In order to view the network map, you must set the networks location type to Home or Work in Network and Sharing center."

Going back to the network and sharing center I cannot find anything clickable that will make these changes. This is on the laptop. When doing the same thing on the desktop I get the same map and when I drop the tab down and select the 'unidentified network' I get...

"Windows cannot create the network map. Responses from the other devices on the network are delayed or there is an incompatible router on the network."

hope this helps.

As the title states, I'm trying to start a homegroup. I start one up, and being that both of my computers have the same name, they don't see each other.

I've got that part figured out, I just need to rename the laptop!

Woo, that's all fine and dandy, except when I renamed my laptop from Ken-PC (the name shared by both laptop and desktop) to KenLaptop and rebooted, there was a whole slew of problems caused by the namechange. Very long story somewhat shortened, it looked like I was booting up win 95.

Multiple error screens, very retro GUI, all fixed by renaming my laptop Ken-PC again.

I'm just trying to be able to share my files between the two computers! HEEEELP!
I thank you for reading, and at the very least, being able to vent if nobody can help.

this is not as effective as one would assume. ALL firewalls must enable

in addition, LAN address x.255 will be used for the broadcasting.

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?

I have 3 computers on the network. All have shared folders . My problem is as follows.

Lets call the computers c2, c3, c4. I am using network shares

When on computer c4 , computers c2 and c3 are not listed at all under network. Sometimes I do see c3 listed but cannot access it.

In computers c2 and c3 , all computers are listed and I can view all the shared folders in c2 , c3 including those on C4.

I cant understand why c4 have such problems viewing other computers on the network. I have rebooted router ( E4200) and computers but still have same problem .

All shared folders are properly shared. and no passwords are required for networks in adv sharing .

Not sure how to proceed to fix problem . Please advise Tks

A:Cant see computers on network shares

I solved the network shares sproblem by first connecting all the computers to a homegroup . Then network shares also worked. I dont know why.

After leaving the homegroup for all my computers , a phantom homegroup was left on c2 so I could not create a new one nor can I join the phantom homegroup from c3 and c4 . I did a quick search and found that I have to shut down all computers then start any computer that does not have the phantom homegroup to create a new homegroup. Apparently one can create new homegroup with impunity after all computers and shut down and only turn on one of them to create a new homegroup !

A:unidentified network with 1 of 2 computers.

The connection type and settings depend on if the original modem is a modem/router combo or just a modem.

If it's a modem/router combo then you would need to either set it in bridge mode so as to bypass the router part or you can turn off DHCP on the secondary router.

You might also need to plug the cable into the LAN port on the new router depending on what the modem/router is.

I don't have enough information to give a more accurate response in this case.

So both your machines connect to the same router or you are using one computer as a relay to your router by having 2 networks on it, if so are these both wireless or is one wired.

The computers are coming from a partnering company, many of our employees are connected to the partners network regularly via VPN. We figure the computers are somehow coming through the vpn connection and appearing on our network? could this be possible?

Some information about our setup:

A:Cannot get two computers to see each other on home network

Did something you know of actually change a week ago, when your home network's configuration apparently changed? Did you replace any hardware? Visits from cable company? Anything?

Can you please do IPCONFIG in a command-prompt on both machines. Please state what each machine shows in its "local area connection" info. I'm looking for IP address details on its IPv4 address, default gateway, DNS router.

Also, you've provided no info in your specs, and you have two machines to describe. So please provide specifics for each machine:

wired vs wireless connection from PC to router? Please list all devices involved, and if wired what they connect from/to.

brand/model of router? brand/model of your powerline adapters. Do you have an actual true "switch" (which is actually a device type), or only a primary router/modem, or what else is involved in your home network. Can you verbally describe your assumed connection path from each computer to the primary router (and then to the modem, unless you have an all-in-one box from your ISP that is both modem as well as router).

are both machines in the same "workgroup"? Right-click on COMPUTER, select Properties, and look down in the "computer name, domain, and workgroup settings" section. What is the "workgroup"?

what are the "attached devices" (presumably and hopefully showing both of your PCs) shown in your router's GUI? Screenshot from a browser window where you've connected to the router (e.g. 192.168.1.1, or whatever the "default gateway" address as shown by IPCONFIG).

A printer USB-connected and hosted by one machine on the network can be shared with other PC's on the network as long as it is set as "shared" in Printer Properties -> Sharing tab, from Start -> Devices and Printers. If that part looks good from the hosting machine, then it's obviously an issue with the two computers not being able to see each other on the network.

We'll get to the bottom of it, but the above info is needed first to get a clear picture of your home setup.

Scenario: My brother is on his own computer surfing the internet, with a smooth connection. Then, I get on torrents or something similar to start downloading, and his connection speed drops, almost to a point where you can't even get anything loaded.

Is there any way to fix this through the router settings? I have cable internet running through a Linksys wireless router, if it makes a difference.

Also, my friend has DSL and said he doesn't encounter this problem. I'm moving out soon, and if this is the case, I'd rather get DSL so I don't have to worry about the room mates hogging all the speed.

If you have any Security or Firewall Software installed, disable them for now.

Once you have find out the IP of each computer, instead of accessng the computer name use the IP Address of the the computer, for example - \\192.168.2.5\Sharedfolder
You are also missing the Share folder name, the correct one is - \\0320-pc\Sharedfolder

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and looking to start a good discussion regarding an issue I am experiencing.

There are two computers on a network with no Domain Controller or Active Directory, just a couple computers with Shared folders. The problem is that when one user types something on their computer it gets displayed on another computer, in what ever document the user has open, and in plain-text, this is even happening with the Windows login password. I'm not exacltly new to the IT field but I have not encountered this before.

The only thing that has changed was a couple monitors being swapped.

Any thoughts or opinions on this would be great.

Title basically explains it.

I've got two computers connected to the same wireless network, and yet they fail to see each other. Both computers have file/printer sharing enabled, and yet I cannot see/access the files on the other computer.

I'm absolutely stymied as to how to fix this.

Help's appreciated,

Yes. I also have the same problem. Sorta. I have a laptop and a desktop. So does my brother, laptop and esktop. His desktop and laptop cannot connect to anything of the other computers. My laptop can. but my desktop could, but stop seeing the others on the network a few days ago. Please Help. Thanks

Network only shows the computer that is being used ,it does not show any other computers on the network.
Cannot network other computers.
Creating Home group does not solve the problem.
Network troubleshooter does not show up anything
Each computer is WORKGROUP setting
All computers connect to internet.

A:Computers not showing on network

First thing is make sure that all firewalls are shut down on all computers, or set to "Trust" your Home LAN. The second thing to check is to make sure that all computers are set to "WORKGROUP" for the group they belong to on the LAN. The next is run Farbar's Mini Toolbox and Service Scanner, which you can download at Searching for farbar When you run Mini Toolbox, only check the first five items, before you run it.

Post back if still having issues. There is also a Tutorial in "Tutorials about Network troubleshooting. Even if you are not sharing anything. The computers should still show up in Windows Network.

Hello.

Today I noticed something strange.I checked the network and I had 3 other computers which I couldn't connect.And when I refreshed the page at network screen,my computer froze and had to restart.So now everything seems possible but,I have a wireless modem which has it's wireless turned off.So it is pretty much a one port cable modem.Computers had unique names but none that I could recognize.

I have Zone Alarm firewall along with NOD32 for protection and as for browsing and such I also use firefox extensions to stop scripts and such.So my question is how can I prevent this from happening again?I also appear to have my Users folder completely shared without me knowing about it which is disabled now.

I also would like to monitor the data transfer to every byte.Is there a software that can provide this?

Thanks in advance.

Is your firewall configured for the network ?

Hi I work as a tech coordinator for a small school. All the students use usernames and passwords to sign on to the network. Recently, they've been locking computers so that only their username and password will work to unlock the computer. The administrator or lab assistant's username and passwork won't work. Do you know what they're doing in order to lock out everyone else? Any suggestions on how to stop this from happening in the future?

Thanks
