Installed 4 New Computers - Can't View Other Workstations Now

Jul 15, 2011

I have an office server set up to about 10 computers. We hired 4 new people and had to set up their computers on our network. Set up was easy and quick as usual. But when I was done, the other computer users, and even the new ones were complaining about not being able to access the DEFCON5 (name of our server) folder to get what they needed.

Basically the only workstations that show up when I click Network are the computers I added the other day, and the computer that is used more than any other computer (the CEO's). We can still access the files by typing the location as \DEFCON5****** and find what we need. But not everyone at my office is computer savy (no body is) and I would like to not have to keep running around and showing everyone this.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Installed Computers Stop Communicating

Nov 21, 2011

I,ve used a network for a number of years with no problems. I have databases on computer 1 and access them with computer 2. After installing a Cisco e2500 I can connect to the databases but after a short period of time I am disconnected. If I search my network computer 1 is not found. Waiting a few minutes the network will find computer 1 again. At about the same time my firewall software has started to show an attack from an 2 different IP's I don't recognize but its always one of those 2 IP's. I'm assuming the two problems are related. I,ve considered going into my firewall and allowing the unknown IP access, BUT who knows where that IP is coming from. I've checked the Cisco setup but couldn't find an IP address that matched the attacking IP address.

Servers :: Creating A Remote DNS Server On Windows 7?

Aug 14, 2011

I am wanting to improve my download and upload speeds. I read this statement at "Solution for requesting pages is set up your own DNS server, with is kinda complicated (basically what happens, is instead of asking some remote server (takes time) for the site IP needed to connect to, youll request it on your own pc, giving you a higher site access speed).

Re-installed Windows XP Pro On Cpu Can't Connect To Internet Or Network?

Dec 27, 2011

I just re-installed Windows XP Professional on my Dell XPS Gen 4. Everything works fine on it but the internet. I can open IE, but it just says "This page cannot be displayed" and on and on.Since I re-installed it I believe their are not many drivers on it, I don't really know, and I think that might be it but I am not sure. And I am not sure which drivers I need if it is missing drivers.

Installed Windows 7 - Wireless Card Has Vanished

Sep 14, 2012

I'm off to university on Monday but I couldn't afford a laptop (I have a huge Dell gaming desktop!) so my awesome parents gave me their little Acer Aspire One D260-A netbook; Intel Atom Processor N450 (1.66GHz, 512K), 1GB, 160GB HDD. It's a couple of years old, was running XP and literally everything was broken - no sound, no backlight, faulty touchpad etc. - so first port of call was a clean install of Windows 7 and updating every driver (and BIOS) off the Acer website from a USB.Problem is, everything is running like a dream... except for the wireless. When I tried to install the latest Atheros drivers (doing all of this from a USB due to lack of connectivity) I received a Code 10: driver cannot start error, so after some troubleshooting I was pointed towards different drivers, only for Windows to inform me that it can't find the hardware.

Looking in devices, I'm seeing an Atheros Ethernet connection device but the wireless card seems to have taken a walk. Xirrus isn't seeing anything either. My current internet is between Virgin and BT (mine and my partner's house) but we move in together on Monday and we'll be setting up Sky, so I can't give you much information on internet. I do have an ethernet cable I can plug into our Virgin wifi home router (D-Link DSL-2640R Broadband Wireless G ADSL2+) if need be. One of my main problems seems to be finding the correct drivers as due to the wireless card disappearing, I'm not sure how to tell what the wireless hardware actually is.

Here are the finer details:

C:Windowssystem32>ipconfig /all
Windows IP Configuration
Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : CJ-Netbook
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :

Installed Windows 7 Now Have Broken Internet Connection

Feb 25, 2011

For about two months now I have been experiencing a problem with my Internet connection. It started when I upgraded my Dell Inspiron 530s from 64 bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7. After a day, I started getting the "Local Area Connection: A network cable is unplugged or broken internet connection." However, the cable is not unplugged. My other PC and laptop (which is wireless) can connect to the Internet, so I know it's not my ISP or my router. It only happens about every other day. It would work perfectly on day and other day I would go to my internet and I would have no connection. The weird thing is that when I restart my computer, it connects right away. My other two computers that was upgraded also does not have this problem.

First, I thought it may be the cable, so I replaced it with another cable I had. No luck.Then I thought it may be the port on the router, so I plugged it into one of the other ports (including the port that the working PC was plugged into). Next, I checked Device Manager > Network Adapters > Intel(R) 8256v-2 10/100 Connection. There is no exclamation point next to it. Plus, under Properties, it indicates that this device is working properly.I shut down all my computers, and unplugged the dsl modem and router. I waited a few minutes and then plugged in the modem, followed by the router. Once both of those were fully booted, I turned my computers back on. Still after a few hours, I lost connection.Following this, I went to Run, typed "cmd" and then "ipconfig." Under Windows IP Configuration, it reads:"Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection: Media State.........: Media Disconnected."

Network / Ethernet Controller Not Installed After Reinstalling Windows 7?

Oct 31, 2011

I just reinstalled windows 7 on my Intel i3 M380 laptop, and now I cannot connect to the internet wirelessly and I can't connect with a ethernet cable. In device manager, it says those devices aren't installed. I can't install them because the laptop has no internet. I can't seem to find the drivers for them either on intel. Seems like the reinstallation deleted my network adapter.. I can't find the correct link on intel.. I've tried like 3-4 on my laptop and none of them seem to work..

No Properly Installed Network Adapter / Windows 7 64bit

Oct 2, 2011

I purchased a new built system, worked great 5 days, major trojan forced a reformat of drive. Now Win 7 64 Device Manager is empty- no network adapter found - I get the notice that "there are no properly installed network adapters". I use the on-board network adapter on the mobo, no plug in network card, hard wired to DSL -- like I said, it worked fine for a few days now it's GONE after reformat.

Seeing Other Network Computers With Windows 7?

May 3, 2011

My home network was made up of a desktop running windows XP home (wired) and a desktop also running XP (wireless). I have recently added a desktop running Windows 7 (wireless) to the system. When I turn on the Windows 7 machine, it sees the other two machines and I use the files from them easily. But after the new machine has been on awhile, it does not see the other computers. (I can, however, still access the shared files on it (the Windows 7 machine) from the other desktop (haven't checked the laptop). If I power down the Windows 7 and then turn it back on, the other machines show up immediately. I've got them all named to the same workgroup and in the network settings in the control panel, I think that it is set to discover the network.

Jan 11, 2012

My windows 7 wireless laptop does not see my XP desktop computers (hard wired to my router). My windows 7 wireless laptop can access the internet via the 2.4gh band of my new dual band router.

My XP desktop computers can see my windows 7 wireless laptop and access shared files.

how I get my windows 7 wireless laptop to be able to see my wired XP desktop computer?

Windows 7 And XP Computers Can't Detect Each Other On Network?

Sep 3, 2012

How do I fix my network so that my Windows 7 and XP computers automatically detect each other on the network. Right now, they cannot browse each other by computer name, instead I have to type their IP addresses (for example: \ in the windows explorer address bar, and then I can browse to their shared folders. And under "Network" (in Windows Explorer) each computer only displays itself, and not the other (unless I have already typed in the other's IP address, in which case it displays the other computer as the IP address).

Establish A Network Between Two Computers With Windows 7 And XP?

Jan 3, 2012

I have spent a couple of hours to find an easy way to connect my old laptop with Windows XP with my new notebook running Windows 7. I have obtained a little bit of background information but am lost in the WWW.

I now know that I would need a special USB cable or a cross-over ethernet cable for a wired connection. As I don't have either at the moment I looked into creating a ad-hoc WiFi network between both computers. I found instructions how to set one up under Win XP and another one for Win 7 but I have found no information whether and how I can actually connect both. I reckon that I only need to set one up on one computer and then would have to somehow make the other computer detect and join that network.

Windows XP Computers Can't Browse Others Over WAN Link

Feb 24, 2011

We have two offices separated by a WAN.Office A is our main office that has all of our servers, including domain controllers and active directory, on our own network.Office B is a temp. office that is piggybacking off of our sister company's network, but the computers there still connect back to Office A servers to login/access services. However, Office B connects to the sister company's local domain controllers for DNS/WINS.We're having an issue where NetBIOS names of the other office are not always showing up when browsing for computers within the WinXP Windows Explorer (My Network Places --> Entire Network --> MS Windows Network --> domain A). It seems entirely random whether or not we can see the other office's computers. We can still ping/remote to them, but cannot browse to them.

It would normally be a non-issue, but some of our software apps require us to "Browse" to the network server location, rather than being able to type in the address, during installation. Can't install if we can't browse the Office A servers. Obviously has something to do with WINS not always populating/updating, but I'm not sure what or how to fix this.
