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.)

Try this:

Power off the modem

Power off the router

Plug computer directly into Modem power up Modem

I have a belkin home network and all the computers in my house can connect except mine, so it isn't a network issue. When I log onto my laptop, it says no networks are available so I can't even attempt to connect. Can someone please help me and tell me what to do? Thanks.

I recently purchased a new Thinkpad laptop. It failed to connect to my Belkin wireless router (limited or no connectivity message) even after I typed in the correct network key. When I turned off WEP protein through my old Dell, the new one can be connected. I then re-enact the protection through the new one using the same key. Now it can be connected under the encryption but the old one is left out. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi I have set up a wireless network in my home using s d-link N+ 300 DIR-655 and the desktop that is directly connected to the modem and router can connect to the internet and my laptop can access the wireless network and get online but I have another desktop that cannot connect to the wireless network. It can see it but when i try and connect i get the message that it was unable to connect or sometimes that i was able to connect but have limited connectivity. Im not really computer savvy but i follow directions well so any help would be greatly appreciated. This has been driving me crazy and i have done everything i know how to correct it and I am sure that i have the correct WPA password in there so that is not the problem.

Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following commands:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

A:Solved: Cannot connect multiple computers

You only get a single public IP address from a modem, and your XP system has that one. You need a broadband router to connect multiple computers to your ISP connection.

The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.

Note that the wireless encryption and channel selection will have to be done after the basic wired connection is established, the first step is to get wired connections working.

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

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

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous command output!

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

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

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

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.

came back the next day plugged in network cable, called it "unidentified network" could not connect to the internet or any other computers.
system settings are workgroup- i have changed the name and rechanged the name.
switched off ipv6
network sharing is on
I have tried every possible suggestion but cannot get it to work.
When i connect through wireless to work, i am also limited to only being able to see only vista and no xp machines, printers or servers.
does anyone know what is going on? 

A:cannot connect to workgroup computers using windows 7 home

Hi,
You may kindly refer to the following steps:
1. Update your network adapter’s driver to latest version.
2. Change your network adapter’s MAC address to have a try.
3. Check whether the wired cable is too long.
4. Uninstall the adapter, then try to reinstall it.

Hi all,

I have a strange problem.
All three of my computers at home (all on windows 7 ultimate 64bit) are connecting to the same router with same SSID, but they end up having duplicate names such as NetworkName 1, NetworkName 2, NetworkName 3. This is preventing me from having them share via homegroup.
I made sure the computer names are all different and all connect to same workgroup name.
Is this a router setting problem? i'm using a cisco-linksys wrt-160n flashed with DD-WRT. i was checking the settings and ran across a new term, vlan. could it be they are all connected to separate virtual networks? i tried to disable vlan, however, that just disconnected all the computers to the internet.

Please help me setup my home network!

Dary

A:Computers at home connect to same router but with different names?

You will only get a V-Lan if you setup a Vlan and you have to do it manually because you have to manually put in IP's... it is not turned on by Default using the DDWRT.

Can you take a screen shot of what you are talking about when you say NetworkName 1.. where is that showing up?

I have three computers, all running Windows 7 Home Premium, that I would like to back up.

I have an external hard drive connected to one of the computers that I would like the backed up files to go to.

Firstly, how do I connect these three computers to the same network (possible via the WiFi, I assume) and have them back up their files to the external drive?

Secondly, I don't want each computer to be able to view one another's files. They need to connect to the same network without sharing data between them. Is this possible?

Thirdly, what backup program do you recommend using for the above task? I would like the backups to be automated, incremental and encrypted. If an inbuilt Windows utility isn't suitable then I'm open to paying for a program, but only a one-off fee (i.e. not annual payments).

Thank you very much for your help in advance!


The external drive will need to be located on the same local machine that you are backing up as you can't really back up or recover from a drive that is located on another machine. Each machine will also require it's own partition on this drive in order to save it's system image back up file.

Answer to Firstly, seriously this question is redundant because if they are all connected to the same router then they are also on the same network using the same default gateway etc. they will be on the same network.

Secondly, simply turn off Network Discovery and File and Printer sharing on each machine via the Advanced Sharing settings via the Network and Sharing Center. This will prevent any sharing between those machines.

Thirdly, I like using the built in Windows back up but there are many others such as the free version of Macrium Reflect etc. too many to name here take your pick do a search.

Wireless doesn't work on my laptop - if I plug it in it works.
I can see and connect to the wireless account - however, once connected to the Internet, Internet doesn't actually work??

All other computers / wireless devices work on this network, and my laptop works on any other wireless network.

I've checked firewall settings, that isn't the problem ...
The fact that the laptop works on other networks leads me to think it isn't a program stopping it from working properly, or it would act up on all networks, right?

Can't figure out why

Then it brought us to another window that asked for a username and password, and we could not go any further. How do I get them connected? and is it safe to set the password protected file sharing to 'off' or do I run the risk of someone hacking into my network? Thank you.

I'm trying to use a printer on one computer USB connection on another This was working just fine until last week when suddenly it stopped The two computers are part of the same powerline network Internet access is through a cable modem router on a third powerline adapter They used to be able to see each other -- I added the printer as a network printer by using the quot Browse quot option I'm not using Homegroups but instead just had it as password authentication For whatever reason the computer with the printer now just doesn't show up to the other two home on to network get other computers Cannot see each one and vice versa I've checked that network discovery is on that the LLT protocols are on and they are They were before nothing has changed Strangely when I have windows generate a quot Full Network Map quot for each computer they are different Cannot get two computers to see each other on home network One PC shows Computer gt Gateway gt Internet and the other shows Computer gt Switch gt Dlink router gt Internet Even more weird is that I don't own any Dlink hardware but it could just be seeing a manufacter's part inside another branded device Does anyone have any suggestions Where can I start to even troubleshoot this Thank you in advance for any help you can offer

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.

I'm building a new computer and (when it's finished) I'd like to network it with my old one. The old one has an ethernet card and the new one will have an Abit AV8 mobo which has "LAN Gigabit" on it. I have a DSL connection. The two will be near each other in the same room. From what I've been able to learn so far, I'll need a hub to connect them, but other than that I'm in the dark as to what I'll need. Advice would be appreciated.

I managed to get folder sharing between a 7 and xp computer via lan cable to
work.
It took houers, and when it worked I didn't know why.

After reinstalling xp, again I can't make the lan cable connection between
the xp and 7 computer work.

The lan has the same name on both computers, and ip on both computer are config'ed.
Icons on both computers say, that the lan connection is running.
However, if I ping the windows 7 computer from the xp computer, it
works. If I ping the xp computer from the xp computer, it works.
If I ping the xp computer from the 7 computer, it doesn't work. If I ping
the 7 computer from the 7 computer, it doesn't work.

And on the 7 computer there is an yellow triangle on the network icon.
But it was also there before reinstallation, and the lan connection worked
anyway.

How do I get the lan cable connection to work?
Thanks.

Did you try the diagnose connection option in Win7's Control Panel --> Network and Internet --> Network Connections app?? Right click on it...

You also said early on...

Can you desribe what you mean by LAN cable connection... is this a PC to PC (ad hoc) network, or do you have a switch or router?

I had a network wich was connected through a cable modem to the internet.
After we moved to another house, i have an internetconnection through a speedport W 501 V over ADSL.
My main computer is connected with an excellent connection,
The other 3 computers can see the speedport, but cannot make a connection. The IP adress can not be refreshed. You cab see that the strength of the network is strong for these connections.
Because the signal was to weak for the other computers i have bought a Linksys wireless G-range expander.

How can i connect to the internet, how can i create a working XP workgrope as i had earlier (or is one problem connected to the other)

A bit more info would be helpful. Are the pc's static or dynamic ips? Can you ping anything? Have you been able to talk to your new router? Does it have the dhcp enabled/disabled? With a bit of info you might be able to duplicate most of the settings from the old to the new router if you can talk to them.

Chev65 is probably one of our most knowledgable members on networking.

I don't use "homegroups" because I have differenet versions of Windows running on my networks. (98, XP, Vista, Win7). I always use business type networks. You have to make sure you get the sharing right on each HD & folders that you want shared on the network.

Hello All,

AS always thank you all for your time in reading this.

So here's my problem...

I have a home computer;

Windows XP Pro
Direct connection to high speed cable

I also have a laptop;

Windows XP Pro
Connects to the internet via a Belkin wireless router (that's connected to my home computer)

I'm trying to connect these two computers together so I can work on various files and folders on my laptop in the wee hours of the morning, instead of falling asleep at my computer desk at night.

I've tried the Windows "setup a wireless home or small business" application with little success. Unless I've done something wrong, I can't connect these two computers.

I would greatly appreciate any help anyone has to offer.

Thanks again for your time.
 

A:Help me setup a HOME network between 2 computers PLEASE!

Hi 5DoubleO,

Try setting up the home network on the main computer. CONTROL PANEL > NETWORK SETUP WIZARD. Give it a network name, the most common name is "WORKGROUP". After you complete creating the network, it will probably ask you to restart.

Then, go on your secondary PC (most likely your laptop) and go to CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM > COMPUTER NAME TAB > CHANGE... > Then enter the network name you created on your main computer. It will probably ask you to restart.

Then you should be able to access both computers shared documents.

We have had 5 computers on our network (p2p) and I'm using two separate workstations as servers for two different database programs. We just added two computers to the network and I'm not allowed to use more than 5 computers at a time to access the one server (with a mapped drive). I can reboot the server and the first 5 computer (counting the server) can access the mapped server. All computer can access each other (excepted for the mapped one). I'm thinking that there maybe sometype of limitation to the number of computer xp home allows on the network.

Any thoughts on how to change this? Thanks!

Really appreciate your computer knowledge. Here?s the problem.

I created a HOMEGROUP on computers A with PRINTER hooked up.. No problem with A, B, C printing.

Now I hooked up PRINTER to computers B. Computers A, B, C do not print (unless I hook up to A).

IMHO if all computers are on the same home network, they should be able to share the same functions.
What should I do to hook up the printer to B and A, B, C will print?

I thank you.

A:Print for all computers on the same home network

If the printer is capable of using Ethernet or Wifi, you do not need it connected to a computer to print, since the printer contains an internal print server. Majority of the times, it is either the Windows Firewall is turned on, or a third party Internet Security software, that is causing this issue. Turn off the firewall, things go back to normal.

As for homegroup, do not use it. Disable it and use standard Networking. It also helps to know the manufacturer & model of the router, OS versions and printer manufacturer & model number.

There are two computers on our network that suddenly stopped connecting to the internet according to the user All the other computers are running just fine Neither Google Chrome or IE can connect to any webpage However both computers can access anything else on the network and also randomly change from showing internet access Computers Internet? to Suddenly on Network Cannot Connect to no internet access in the network center Also even though no webpages can be loaded the computer is still apparently connected to the internet because they can be accessed remotely through Team Viewer from outside the network over the internet System Restore helped with nothing and I tried to install Ad-Aware to do a scan but the installation fails because it cannot connect to the internet The machines are running Windows Professional x bit It was the same user who was on both machines when they went down and based on the browsing history it looks like this could possibly be related to some sort of malware spyware as opposed to coincidental hardware issues Edit - I did check the Ethernet cables with my laptop and have no issues connecting to the internet from the laptop

A:Computers on Network Suddenly Cannot Connect to Internet?

I hope your company's security infrastructure's intact and strong, so that whatever is troubling these two computers [via downloads and/or internet installs] will not travel to other computers within the company.  Could the company-wide security systems also be "interrupting" this particular user's "interneting?"

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 the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

This should also work for windows 8
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box

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

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here

Every computer has the password protected sharing off and discovery on, most are using Vista, one is using XP.

I have had a netgear router for some time now (WNR2000) for three home computers, all Windows Vista+ and recently had to buy a new wireless adapter for one of them (WNA3100). Previously, all computers were connected to a security-enabled network called 'Johnson'.

I installed the new adapter via the wizard and it ended up creating a new network entitled 'NTGR_zhOXSTT8ZSXtTUsaRd5lXfrq-WPS'. Johnson has now disappeared from the list and no other computer is able to connect to this new network. I tried changing from WPA2 to WEP and changing the password in hopes that the other computers will be able to login but it didn't work.

Help!!

Why not (on the router) change it back to the old SSID and WPA-PSK or whatever encryption you were using, make sure you didn't enable MAC Address filtering, and stay away from those strange wizards?

Since no one else has replied yet.......

I`m not too good at networking, but this occurs to me.
Check the firewall. Turn it off first and see if that helps

It probably was set up before with a ?trusted network" based on an address from the old router.

How far away from your computers is the router? Also; have you tried to power cycle the modem and router? If not; i would try that. Unplug both the modem and router; wait about a minute; then plug in the modem first; let that boot; then plug the router back in and let that boot. Try doing that and see if it helps the situation.

Days ago this site helped me with a problem I encountered when I hooked up 2 new computers to my network (making a total of 7) and I learned that XP home (the os on all computers) limits access to only 5 computers at one time to any given file or program. Now since I don't have a server per say, I only use one of the workstations to act as the server for one of our data bases. Can I make the one computer (acting as the server) an XP pro and keep the other XP Home and get access to the data with up to 10 computers? I'm wanting to know for sure before I go out and get XP Pro (actually I'll take one of the new computers back and swap for one with xp pro already on it).

How would I connect this server to the Internet without disrupting other users on the network? By disrupting, I mean connecting to my server instead of the main server for DNS and DHCP. The server has Active Directory Domain Services, DNS, DHCP, and WDS roles set-up.

All the computers are able to connect to the internet and browsing the net is not a problem, but the problem is in accessing some of the computers on the network, I keep getting thse pop up error messages saying " \\comp1 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions". I am the Technical guy in the company overseeing tthe network. Please Help am stranded and my job is on the line.!
 

A:I can connect to the wireless network in my office but i cant access some computers:

Sounds like you don't have permissions. Is this a domain or a workgroup network? Sounds like a workgroup.
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.

OBJECTIVE:
Currently running a wireless network but I have 2 desktops downstairs that need WIRED internet. I don't want to have to buy 2 wireless cards to connect both machines to the internet AND network (I also need to transfer larger files since we work with heavy graphics).

SETUP:
Both have Gb network cards installed.
- One is a server, running on windows 2003 server
- The other is a regular desktop running win xp pro sp2
I was thinking of purchasing a wireless access point router or bridge that has about 4 ports (in case I add 2 more machines). Would be great too if I can use this same system to upgrade our bluray player =)

Currently, the cable modem is attached to a belkin wireless pre-n router [F5D8230-4] here's link: http://is.gd/mleI

Can someone help?

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.

 What are the OSes in your network?  If they aren't all Windows 7 or 8.x, there're special considerations.  In addition there're permission and firewall considerations, but since you've neglected to provide configuration details, that's about all I can tell you for now.

A:Computers in network not showing up correctly Windows 10 Home.

This gets so time consuming, that I hate to even get started but I have a similar problem. I actually think that some update to win 10 caused this issue but can't verify it. I have 2 desktops and 2 laptops on the network. One desktop and one notebook were upgraded to win 10 about a month ago. Everything was fine then. Since three days ago, the notebook does not show up on the other computers at all including itself. This is under "network" on file explorer. On the notebook under HOMEGROUP , it shows a mixture of username and computer names but never the same thing twice. The WIn 10 desktop shows the same mixture under Homegroup, but shows everything under NETWORK but the notebook. The note book has become the hidden device on all four computers in the house. The frustrating things is that tomorrow, these results will all be different. So far the required shared folders and printers work as advertised, even though the names don't show up !!!!
What's a mother to do????

I have a home network with several computers (2 laptops via WiFi, one ethernet-connected desktop) with internet via DSL, distributed with a Netgear WGR614 v.8. How do I set the system up to allow printing from any computer to a printer connected to one of the other computers? Should it matter what computer the printer is connected to? The Netgear manual is impenetrable on this issue for me.
 

A:Home network: How to make my printer accessible from other computers

Hi Zaphod81007 and welcome to TSG. Assuming all computers are running some version of MS-Windows, It should not matter which computer has the printer connected to it in order to be able to print from the other two computer. You would need to make sure that the computer hosting the printer is always on when you want to print from the other computers. It is a matter of first enabling sharing of the printer on the host computer and then adding the printer on the other two computers. The exact procedures will depend on which versions of Windows is running on each computer and any firewall software on the host computer.

I'm thinking something similar to ftp, have no idea what options there are.

Have 3 computers want to network between both in a more convenient manner than msn.

Hopefully can get some recomendations to minimise trauling time. Both computers are running windows XP and are connected through a multi-port router.


Thanks for any input.
 

A:Home network, looking for server to share files between computers.

You should be able to do this simply WITHOUT a server. All you have to do to share files, is use windows file sharing. Let me paint a picture for you...say you have your 3 computers. One is named Suzy, one is Steve, and one is Bill. Once file sharing is enabled (which you can do just by sharing a file), you should be able to do something similar to this. Say your on the computer Bill, and you want to grab some files from the shared folder on Suzy. Open up my computer, and in the address bar (Where is says your location) type in \\Suzy. This will give you access to the files and printers on that computer. BTW if you dont know how to rename a computer, right click on the my computer icon and select properties. Once the system tool comes up, click on computer name and change if necessary. Good luck and I hope this helps make things cheaper than buying a crappy old server lol.

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.

What I'm trying to do is trying to setup file sharing between 2 computers connected by an ethernet cable.
So far so good, except those 2 computers are ALSO part of a Wifi network to connect to the internet through a wireless router. There are other computers on this network (other roommates) that must NOT have access to anything shared on either on those 2 computers.

I've tried fiddling with homegroups but the only homegroups we can create are on the WiFi network. If I set the LAN connection to anything else but public by setting PC2 as a default gateway, I can't get access to the internet anymore.

How on earth can I set that up properly, if that's even possible?

EDIT: my brain is so close to imploding that I forgot basic curtesy-

Of course, thank you in advance for your help.


Sounds to me like you are using ICS to create a secondary wired connection for the second machine.

You need to use the LAN ports on the router or a switch rather than sharing a connection using ICS "internet connection sharing". Homegroups won't work with ICS.

Once you are connected to the router with a regular LAN connection with both machines, you should have no problems setting up a Homegroup between those two machines.

Once the Homegroup is set up it will lock the other machines out of your shared C:>Users folders on both of the Homegroup machines. You will be able to share exclusively between those two machines while the other wireless machines will have no access unless you give it to them by adding Everyone to the shared with list.

My Desktop runs windows2000 professional. My Laptop runs WindowsXP. I have cable net hooked into a d-link DI-604 Ethernet Broadband Router. Although my laptop is wi-fi enabled, both my computers are wired to said router for internet.

Every time I try to set up a network using the network wizard, it trys to connect to my neighbors wi-fi. I have disabled wi-fi on my laptop, and it still gets hung up here. It doesn't give me the option of setting up a network from the wired LAN hookup, however in network connections it does acknowlege the LAN connection, so it is there.

Any ideas? Am i totally getting this wrong?

A:Windows Firewall is blocking access to computers on my home network

I hate to suggest the obvious, but why not invest in a $30 wireless router? It'll solve this problem and a whole lot more.

I don't have a Homegroup setup and file sharing is turned off, and yet there are several items listed under "Network" in File Explorer.

My two other computers are always listed there, even when they are turned off.

I can even access and browse one of these computers (when it is turned on) without providing a password.

The name of the computer I am using is also listed there.

My name of my brother laser printer is listed there, but I cannot access it this way.

The name of my router is listed there but I cannot access it this.

How do I control what shows up in my Network?

Hello Switched over the internet service provider to Time Warner We are using the same router we have used before the switch which was also with Time Warner service provider and everything was working FINE before the switch But now with the new modem from service provider something is wrong -- My roommate is unable to connect her laptop and her phone to the wifi even though the network is being detected I can only connect to my laptop which was the laptop I had opened to verify connectivity when the Technician was there Also my I-phone is unable to connect to the network even though it detects it It s very odd considering we had the technician come out to resolve this issue in the first place Could it be that the DHCP server has been turned off so it s allowing only one device to connect to the one IP address on the modem Or wifi to to Unable connect home devices multiple do we need to delete the wifi Unable to connect multiple devices to home wifi networks off of our computers and other devices My roommate tried that on her devices and still didn t connect Please help nbsp

A:Unable to connect multiple devices to home wifi

Do you know if your new modem includes WiFi? Is so, when you tested the connection with the technician present, did they have you connect wirelessly to your existing wireless router or to the modem itself?

Assuming you are running some version of Windows on the computer that can connect, please go into the Windows DOS/Command prompt screen and run an IPCONFIG /ALL command. Then copy and paste the complete results of the command here.
