Home Network :: Local Access Only On Vista Laptop?

Nov 13, 2012

Local Access Only on Vista PC

I restored an old Vista laptop to out-of-the-box state to give to my Dad. This laptop had a wireless connection to the internet and network previously. After the restore, I can't get a connection to the internet, even though my router sees it and it has an ip address. It says Unidentified Network Local Access only, and it doesn't see any of the computers on the network. Sometimes the other computers see it but can't connect, sometimes, the other computers don't see it. I hate Vista.

Stats on Laptop:
Toshiba A215-S4747
Atheros AR5007EG

All my other eight devices have an internet connection no problem, but I powered off the modem and router a couple of times with no change. I tried updating the Atheros to the latest driver on Toshiba's website for this model, but it doesn't seem to take. If I uninstall the old drivers, Windows rudely just immediately reinstalls them again. If I just update the driver, and pick the new file, the driver version remains the same as the previous driver. I'm banging my head on the wall with the driver

Ping successful on: (the laptop's IP address)

The wireless Internet at home is not working on my laptop anymore. It's working fine on my mobile as well as with other wireless networks at school for example. No matter what browser I use I usually dont get to any website. Most of the time it says access: local only, or local and internet, or limited connectivity. If I'm lucky at the right time I can open a website but then it's gone again.

Can't Access Windows 7 Pc Files From Vista Laptop

May 7, 2011

I have one laptop (Windows Vista) and one PC (Windows 7) in my house and I am trying to share folders between them. The problem is I can access my laptop's files from my pc, but I can't access my pc's files from my laptop.

And when I go to Network and Sharing Center, on "View your active networks" part, I click joined to give check mark on Pictures, Music, Videos, Documents, and Printers (the default setting: only printers that got checked). After I checked those all, I click "Save changes". But, if I go back to click "Joined" It was set as default, it is like it doesn't save my setting.

Sharing :: Laptop With Vista Can't Access Shared Folders?

Dec 3, 2012

Suddenly Can't access shared folders but others can . Laptop with Vista. Had many Mapped [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue ! important]Network [COLOR=blue ! important]Drive[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] issues about 2 months ago. Finally all resolved. Laptop was gone from our shop for about 2 weeks. Now it cannot see the Shared Folders (except for Public and Printers), and could not re-connect the Mapped Drives. Accesses Internet, can Ping the other PCs(all running Win7). Connect thru Wireless.

Why SUDDENLY, there are no shared folders visible on a Laptop?

Notes: This is the 2nd time this has happened. I changed alot of settings the first time. I re-checked all the settings this time.

Update: Magically works today 12-3-12. But what caused it? Why does Vista loose the ability to map network drives, when nothing

changes...I still want to know why for the next time this happens.

Home Network :: Setup A DC++ HUB For Sharing Data Within The University Local Network?

Feb 13, 2011

I want to setup a DC++ HUB for sharing data within the university local network. We have addresses of the form 172.31.*.*. These addressed are accessible within the university bu non routable outside on the internet. My plan is to setup a local HUB for DC++ for sharing data within the university intranet. So even if internet is unavailable data can be exchanged through LAN. This HUB must not be accessable outsied the university network.how should I do this all..implementing network sharing other than DC++. My basic idea is that everybody can share their data and the data is searchable from one common interface( Web interface is better option, if possible). And data featching should prefferably be from many hosts, using multiple connections so that speed can be improved..

Home Network :: Add Printers To Local Wireless Network Without Sharing From Computer

Mar 3, 2012

I have a home network running all Mac computers (though can run Windows VM if necessary) and a pair of USB printers. The wireless router and cable modem are in one room, but the printers are in another. I'd like to find the most practical way to add the printers to the local wireless network without sharing them from a computer. I've tried that for a while, but don't want to leave a laptop connected 24/7 just to enable wireless printing (rather defeats the purpose of a portable computer). I don't have any wired network lines in the home, and am not excited by the idea of running any cables.

Home Network :: How To Use A Network Connection As A Local Host

Nov 1, 2012

There is a device which is connected to the PC via Lan. I have an exe file which is supposed to get connected to that device and perform some operations. However, the problem is, the exe file tries to connect to the local host ip address and i cant change the ip since it's been coded.So, I'm wondering if i can use the device connection (which already has a different ip like 169....) as a local host connection. So whenever it tries to connect to the loopback 127... it automatically connects to the external device.

Home Network :: Cannot See Local Lan Shares Under Network Icon

Apr 4, 2013

i purchased vaio with win8. Under network icon, I can not see any other computers in the local network therefore not able to access shares unless i explicitly map the shares which is tedious.

On other computers running win7 and xp, each of them can see each other under network icon.However that is not the case with my laptop running 8. Actually i have seen once or twice all pc-s show up but most of the time, they dont appear.

I read somewhere that following service need to be checked to make sure they are running: upnp, ssdp in services. I checked those and they are all running.

I also enabled "turn on network discovery" under network and sharing->advanced sharing. setting. To make it more complicated there are private and public and all network setting. I enabled all items as follows:

1. Private Turn on network discovery is checked along with Turn on automatic setup of network connected devices Turn on file and printer sharing is selected Allow Windows to manage homegroup connections is selected.

2. Guest or public Turn on network discovery is selected Turn on file and printer sharing is selected.

With these settings I still dont see the local computers and their shares. Do I need to check anything else?
