Connecting A Wired Pc To A Wireless Laptop?

Apr 4, 2011

At home i have a desktop Pc connected to the internet via ethernet, to a bt homehub, on the same homehub i also have a laptop connected to it but using the wireless connection. Both pcs are using windows 7.

I`m trying to file share between these 2 computers using a homegroup, but neither recognises another homegroup on their network. Is this because i`m not using the same connection method ( wirelss and wired) ? Even though both connections are going through the same Hub? I`ve tried renaming the homegroups on both pcs to the same name to see if that works, but it seems both pcs are on different networks. clear lack of pc intelligence, networking not really my thing.

Wired Laptop Not Connecting To Dhcp / Router?

Jun 13, 2011

Okay we have the router downstairs with a powerline ethernet on the firs and second floors so we can get the net.

Our house must be made of lead or something, because I very rarely get a decent wireless signal which stays consistant. Because of this I wanted to connect my laptop though the powerline but for some reason it doesn't work.

When I plug in the network cable it just hangs on identifying for a minute or so then comes up with "unidentified network" saying its connected, but has no access to the router, the internet etc etc.

Connecting the laptop directly works fine however. I've also attempted plugging the laptop in via a usb / ethernet connector, but that still hasn't given any results with the exact same issue. When i run ipconfig /all this is what comes up.

Dlink DIR-615 Not Connecting To Internet Whether Wired Or Wireless

Sep 17, 2012

I'm using the Dlink DIR-615 Router. It's fairly old, and has been giving me trouble for a while. Due to recent circumstances I have no choice but to use this router. I can connect to the router just fine but it does not connect to the internet whether it be a wired or wireless connection. I have recently reset the router and haven't changed any settings besides the password. (also I get the error "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (Microsoft Corporation: Software, Smartphones, Online, Games, Cloud Computing, IT Business Technology, Downloads) is not responding" from window when trying to repair the connection.)

Cisco Routers :: SRO527W Wireless And Wired Not Connecting

Mar 5, 2013

in our small office, we are using Cisco SRP527W (Router/ADSL Modem all in one ) and D-Link DGS-1210-16 (ports) as our main network devices, our 3 desktops (Windows XP), Avaya phone system and one Brother MFC 6490CW are wired connected to our D-Link switch, port1 of the switch is connected to lan port 1 of our Cisco router, we also have 3 wireless devices connected to the cisco router throught wireless signal (one Broher MFC J6910DW printer, one laptop with Win7, one all-in-one desktop with Win8), as we know, both Switch and Router support Vlan feature, but at the present, I just use default Vlan (Vlan 1) for all our data traffic, I created a DHCP Pool in Cisco router to provide IP address to all our devices (DHCP Pool: -, Default gateway is,  All wired or wireless devices can get right IP address,and all of them are able to get on to the internet, the problem is wireless and wired devices can not talk to each other, for example, my laptop is using wireless connection, when I try to ping a desktop which is wired connected to switch, there is no response, however, if I cable connect my laptop to switch, I am able to talk to the desktop and use its shared resource.

Cisco Wireless :: 2800 - Connecting To Wired Apple TV Across WAN Link

Feb 7, 2013

I am having issues figuring out how i can make AppleTV,Airprint, Airplay, etc show up on Ipads that are connected to the wireless network.  The controller is at a main site which is seperated by 2800 series routers at the remote sites over 100Mbs links.  Ipads connect and tunnell back to the main site.  I've tried enabling FlexConnect but the devices still get the main site's addressing so i'm guessing they are still tunneling unless the AP loses connectivity to the controller.  I have two SSIDs (staff and students).  I have tested with just setting the staff to FlexConnect.  Do I need to set both SSIDs to FlexConnect to make them dump data locally?  AppleTVs are connected wired to the local networks and get addressing associated with that building.

Laptop Can't Connect To Internet Neither Wired Or Wireless

Jun 3, 2011

my laptop, as well as my moms laptop, were working perfectly fine on wedensday. Yesterday however, i was randomly getting kicked off the internet, and i came to realize that whenever both of our laptops were on, only one could connect to the internet. the other one couldn't find the DNS server or, after some frustration windows finally told me (on my laptop) that two computers were sharing the same ip address on my network. made sense i guess. so i went to CMD, typed ipconfig /release on my laptop, but it said media was disconnected so it didn't work. i then went onto my moms laptop, typed the same thing in CMD, and it released it fine. but then her battery died so i plugged it in to renew her ip.

once her computer got enough of a charge to turn on i went to cmd and typed ipconfig /renew, but it wouldn't renew it, saying media was disconnected. so, now her laptop and my laptop will not connect to wireless.on my laptop, i transfered my documents to another HDD and did a fresh install of windows. but even since, my laptop will not connect to the internet. when i trouble shoot it it says something about no networking drivers are installed, but i can't even install drivers because i have no internet im on her laptop right now, it will connect via ethernet cable.

Laptop Not Connecting Through Wireless

Jun 25, 2012

This is a problem i had after i reinstalled windows vista on my laptop. I recently reinstalled windows vista onto a laptop. The laptop is unable to find the router. I checked the drivers, and i am not sure if im missing any. There is a yellow mark on my network controller, but there is no description or details for it. The internet works while connected to an etherent cable directly to my router. I went to the manufacture website (dell), and downloaded/updated the drivers. I ran PC diagnostics and the wireless still doesn't work.

Wireless Laptop Cannot Ping Wired Desktop On Home Network

May 7, 2012

I have a wired desktop PC (HP dx2480) running XP SP3 connected to a LinkSys Wireless 4-port router, and a laptop (Lenovo X61) running XP SP3 connected wireless to the same home network (192.168.0.x). The LinkSys connects by cable to a DSL router for internet access. Both PC and laptop get DHCP IPs from the Linksys (which I have hard-coded - mapped MAC to IP). They are on the same Windows Workgroup "HOME". Both Desktop and Laptop have same Windows User Logins. My desktop had a virus attack (trojan), which I removed and re-installed XP SP3 (from HP disks). Since then the PC seems to have "network sharing and discovery issues" on the network.

- The wired PC CAN ping the laptop, but laptop CANNOT ping PC.

- Both laptop and PC CAN access the internet.

- The laptop and PC COULD NOT see each other on Windows Workgroup, or see shares. This got resolved once I added IPX/SPX/NetBios Protocol on both the wired and wireless NICs on both PC/laptop respectively. NOTE: Before adding this protocol, I double-checked that File-Printer Sharing was enabled on both NICs, Windows Firewall had File-Print Sharing as exclusion. I tried everything including disabling firewall on both, disabling McAfee scanning on both, disabling Firewall on Linksys, but nothing worked.

- The laptop CAN see the NAS (Seagate GoFlexHome - connected by cable to LinkSys) using Seagate Dashboard software and direct IP. The PC CANNOT access the NAS using the Dashboard software but CAN access through direct IP. The NAS is named "goflex_home", which both can discover as \goflex_home from explorer.

- The laptop CAN see ITunes Home Share from a NAS, but the PC CANNOT see any home shares on the NAS (or from the laptop). I even added Home Sharing TCP/UDP ports as exceptions on the Firewall on the PC, but it still doesn't work.

- Some blog checking the node type on IP addresses given by DHCP. The laptop has Node Type "Hybrid", and the PC has "Unknown". I even went to PC regedit.exe and modified the and Change EnableProxy to 0 or 1 (instead of 2 that was in the PC as default).

- I have used SG TCPOptimizer on both laptop and PC to revert to Windows default?

PK5000 - Unable To Set Up File Sharing Between Wired PC And Wireless Laptop

Jan 29, 2011

After reading posts in this forum and others, and reviewing MSFT tech docs, I'm still not able to establish file sharing between the wired PC and the wireless-connected laptop. Maybe I'm working under some stupid assumptions. I am able to ping each computer by their IP address - I can ping the laptop from the desktop, and vice versa. The desktop shows the Basecomputer under network places, but on the laptop, nothing at all shows up under network places. Laptop missing something?

The details:
a) Connecting to internet via DSL, Qwest ISP, Actiontec PK5000 Advanced Networking Network Router. Advanced Networking router, to me, means that home networking shouldn't require any other hardware. Stupid assumption?

b) Desktop PC is connected to the modem/router via ethernet cable

c) Laptop is connected to the modem/router via wireless, (Dell Wireless WLAN 1350 WLAN Mini PCI Card). Assocation tab of the wireless properties gives the network authentication/data encryption types as Open/WEP.

d) Some settings of the modem, viewed via the browser (192.168.0.x)
- Wireless security type: WPA
- MAC authentication Enabled
- Firewall security level: Off (NAT only)

e) Desktop PC is Windows XP Home Edition, SP 3

f) Laptop is Windows XP Professional Version 2002, SP3

g) Both are running Windows Firewall; File and Printer Sharing is checked for both, under the Exceptions tabl

h) I ran the Network setup wizard for both, using same Workgroup name, called HOME. Desktop is called BASECOMPUTER, and Laptop is called LAPTOP. No errors in the setup. On the desktop PC, under Windows Explorer, Network Places -> Entire Network, I can see a 'Home' network under a Microsoft Windows Network icon, with the Basecomputer listed. However, LAPTOP is not listed. This is after a couple of restarts.

i) ipconfig and nbtstat ouput

Connecting Second Laptop To Wireless Network

Aug 13, 2011

connect my partner's laptop to my wireless network?

The router is a Sagem provided by my ISP (Sky). The wireless connection works fine on my MacBook, and various other devices connect no problem with the security key.

However, his laptop (Windows Vista) will not connect wirelessly. After entering the password, it says it can't connect because it 'times out' (we are obviously entering the password immediately with no delay). It connects fine with an ethernet cable. It will also connect to an unsecured wireless network we can pick up.

The security setup is WPA-PSK with TKIP encryption, and we've made sure he is using these settings.

If it might be important, he has just moved here, and previously his laptop was connected to another Sky router with no problems.

Connecting A XP Laptop To A Wireless Network

Jul 26, 2012

I'm trying to connect my XP laptop to a home wireless network and I keep getting the following error once I enter in the passcode provided by my ISP:The network passcode needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters.I have an iphone, 3 ipads, one windows 7 pc and a mac connected to the network with no problems. The password provided by the ISP is 25 characters (letters and numbers). I would hate to have to change the password on all my devices for one Windows XP laptop. I've called Netgear who make the wireless router and they said the only solution was to change the password for all devices.

Laptop Not Connecting To Wireless Connection?

When I try to connect to the internet via a wireless connection, I select the connection I want and it says it's connected.

However when I go to the wireless connection properties it is sending but not receiving and it won't connect to the internet. I went to the CMD and typed in IPCONFIG and get the message saying my "Media Not Connected."

I have pushed the green button on the router so my laptop can pick up the settings but it still won't connect. Also, I took my laptop to my friends house and was able to connect on their wireless.

I am on Windows Vista.
