Routers / Switches :: Connecting Laptop To Desktop On A Network?

Feb 9, 2011

I have a desktop connected to our work network. It's running XP Pro. I also have a laptop running vista home. Is there a way to hardwire that laptop to the desktop, so i can share files between those two computers, while ALSO keeping my desktop connected to my office network?Since it's vista home, I can't connect the laptop to our network, since it can only connect in workgroups, not networks. But if I'm just able to just use the laptop, create files, and then either save them to a shared folder with my desktop or just save them to the desktop with a switch or something, it wouldn't be a problem that my laptop can't connect to the network.

Netgear R3600 - Internet Connection Keeps Connecting And Disconnecting On Desktop Pc?

Jul 26, 2012

My PC can't seem to keep the wireless connection for longer than a few seconds without it trying to reconnect and eventually drop again. Other family members' PCs don't seem to have this problem and my laptop also has a stable connection.
I used to have no problem connecting, but this problem arose one day. My house uses Verizon FIoS, the router is a Netgear R3600 and my PC uses AVG.

The picture has the signal showing up, but then it disappears seconds later only to reappear again.

Sharing Connection Between Laptop And Desktop?

Oct 25, 2011

I have a desktop and a laptop. I can't get wireless or a wired connection to the router so I need to use my laptop to connect to the internet in the short term. I have connected to the computers using an ethernet cable. I can get to local fine but no internet.

I have attempted to bridge the two connection but when I click on resolve it says there is an IP conflict. I can't see where.

I have also tried ICS but it keeps saying there was an error when attempting to enable it although I did manage to allow it to connect at one point before it reverted back to not working it still wouldn't allow the desktop internet access. All services are running.

IP config without ICS or bridging:

Bridge Internet Connection Received From Laptop To Desktop With An Ethernet Cable

Apr 13, 2011

I am trying to bridge internet connection received from my laptop to my desktop with an ethernet cable. Both machines are running win 7.When I try to connect to my local area connection on the desktop most of the time it fails and I'm left with 'Unidentified network' and no internet connection. Sometimes, rarely it does connect properly but I get a notification about there being an IP conflict in the network, but things work as they should.When I diagnose the problem it tells me that "Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

Laptop Not Connecting To Wireless Connection?

Jul 11, 2012

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.

Connecting One Particular Laptop Via Wireless Connection Disrupts Internet?

Jan 13, 2011

Whenever i connect a particular acer laptop to the internet at work via the wireless, internet access is lost after a period that ranges from 30 minutes to 1 hour and i have to reboot the VSAT modem to restore internet connectivity. This cycle of rebooting the vsat modem to restore internet access goes on and on until the problematic laptop is powered off.Initially i thought the problem was with the modem since i always had to restart it, but i noticed that if i didnt take that laptop to work, internet access stayed up the whole day.The acer laptop is enabled for DHCP and connects to a cisco wireless acess point that is connected to a cisco 2960 series switch which is in turn connected to the VSAT modem.

Desktop Connecting To Router But Not Internet?

Aug 29, 2012

My client has a ~6 year old dell xps which up until about two weeks ago connected to the internet fine with a netgear usb wireless adapter (it is a desktop). When that stopped working, she ordered a Rosewill RNX-N300X (my suggestion) and I installed it.I got the driver installed and everything, it connects to the router without a problem. Her laptop also connects wirelessly to the router just fine and can browse the web without a problem. The desktop however, even when connected to the router, refuses to access the internet. I was thinking the problem was DNS related because I can ping any ip address in cmd, but can't ping actual websites like [url]... or [url]... The problem is, when I manually change the dns servers in the wireless connection properties, it disables dhcp and will not connect to the internet.Here are the ipconfig /all results for the laptop which works:

Connecting Non-wireless Desktop To ADSL Router?

Feb 22, 2013

My desktop however, does not have built-in wireless and therefore would have to connect to the ADSL router (Netgear) through ethernet but this cannot be done as the router must remain in my bedroom, much too far away for cables to reach.I bought a USB wireless connecter for the desktop but it doesn't seem to work. It connects but gives "Local Only" as the connection.

Can't Connect To Internet After Connecting To Remote Desktop

Aug 23, 2011

I successfully connected to my windows xp pc through the remote desktop connection client on my macbook and now I am unable to connect to the internet on the pc. All that it says is acquiring network address. I know that it is not an isp or router issue because all of the other computers on the network are able to connect just fine. I tried using system restore but it said something to the effect of windows can not restore to this point, no changes were made to your computer. This happened with multiple different restore points.
