I recently did a clean install of Win 7 64-bit Pro on my workstation. This was previously connected to my DNS (Windows server 2008 R2) which i use to host my files, music etc for my home network. I was previously able to see my network shares in windows explorer (client side) but now I don't. If i go to search box and \server the shared folders will then be displayed in windows explorer under network and i have access to them. I've done a small amount of digging but have so far found nothing to point me in the right direction. So while i have access i would like to be able to point windows media player to my shared music on the server, which i can't do now because I have no way to navigate to that folder. Same with other programs such as outlook, when i want to attach a file to an email i'm not able to navigate to the share. Weird as i have access to the share by search \server?
my computer is a dell dimension 1100, with a Linksys WMP54G wifi card, running vista home basic.In the wifi thing in the notification area, it shows two wireless networks, One is my normal SSID (Lower Net), and one is "Unidentified network". They are both on one wireless connection (Wireless Network Connection 3). When i try to go on the internet, it says i'm not connected. i tried disconnecting from the unidentified network, but that disconnects me from lower net too.
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?
Ive just updated my hardware including hard drves, and now I have a couple of redundant shared folders showing on the network trees (in my file manager) How do I delete these obsolete shared folders that dont exist?
I am finally switching over my work computer from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have multiple network connections I connect to when I boot up. I've set myself as a new user on the servers I have to connect to, Windows 7 asked me to put in my username and password for each share, all connects fine but when I shutdown and restart, I see all my Shares as red x'ed "disconnected" and as I click on each one, I have to put in my username and password again. Windows XP always remembered my connections and logged me onto each share at boot up. I've checked "remember my credentials" but it's not doing it, Am I missing something? on any restart or shutdown, I have to click on each share and put in my login credentials.
I have 3 or 4 devices connected via a wireless connection, 2 of which are in the same room. Roughly a week ago, my desktop (Vista OS) started to suffer from severely reduced download speeds (5-30kb/s), while my laptop (also Vista OS) which is on the same wireless network continues to run at normal speeds (500kb/s-1mb/s).
I have tried a system restore, scanning for viruses, updating/disabling antivirus and firewalls, connecting directly to LAN, changed wireless interface speed from g to b to mixed, changed wireless channels from 1-6-11, nothing seems to work.
I have a Thomson TG782T router with a D-Link wireless card (which is rather old).
I just started having this problem yesterday. I was experiencing weird downloading/internet browsing issues and couldn't figure out what the problem was. I started looking around my router settings and noticed that in my DHCP Client list, my computer isn't in it. The router is hooked up to the computer, so it's not wireless. My phone and my girlfriend's laptop are listed, but the main computer isn't. It's especially causing problems with port forwarding. Downloads will stop because the port isn't showing as open. I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 and a Belkin N+ Wireless Router, model F5D8235-4.Firmware is up to date.
i m configuring a 887 router for ssl vpn. The goal is to configure full tunnel mode, so the client connect to the webpage generated by the router, it logs in, it has the "application svc" window where you can download the client and connect. Problem is everything is working except for the fact that the window with the ssl application doesn show up at all and so clients can't download the client and connect.
this is the relevant part of the configuration:
ip local pool sslvpnpool xxxxx xxxxxx ip http server ip http authentication local
I`ll get straight to the point. I have at work a domain of computers. on one of the computers (I have admin rights) I want to share a folder that can be accessed by other computers that are not in the domain. By default accessing that share requires a user/pass. My question is: can I configure something on the computer (running windows 2008 server) to the shared folder so that other computers that are not from the domain will gain access to without user/pass requirement (like a normal share)?
Having got a new Windows 7 (64 bit Ultimate) PC, I decided to turn my old PC (XP Pro) into a file server. After much fun with Windows networking, I have one particular problem. Listing files on the server from the Win7 machine is ridiculously slow. A few directories have large numbers of files in them, around 10,000 image files. Browsing to one such folder on Win7, I have timed a listing and it took 48 seconds! That's a very long time to wait for a file listing. I have a network connection monitor running and it doesn't seem to be overloading the network- data was dribbling down the 100Base-T cable at about 200kiloBITS per second. Trying things the other way around, the same folder if placed on the Win7 machine and listed from the old XP machine can deliver a complete listing in about 5 seconds. I'm not sure which end has the problem; either the server is delivering file names very slowly or (my guess) the Win 7 machine is asking for them very slowly, perhaps asking for lots of crap that isn't needed like icons or file dimensions or something.
I replaced my old Linksys WRT54G wireless router with the new E3000 wireless router. The installation was a breeze, but not what followed henceforth. I was able to access the internet on my wireless desktop/laptop/Netflix ROKU player/WD TV live media player, but lost access to all the network shares. I spent a lot of useless time with Linksys chat support and phone support, where they said their responsibility is only getting the internet working. They said they are not responsible for file and printer sharing issues, and suggested I use a third-party paid support package to resolve my issues. Over and above spending a hefty amount for the lates top of the line E3000 router, I was not going to shell out additional money for support.
Thinking that it could probably be due to some Windows XP firewall/anti-virus (McAfee) issues, I disconnected the E3000 and connected the old WRT54G back again. Lo and behold, everything started working fine again. I could access the shared folders of my desktop (to which my router is attached) and printer, from the wireless laptop/desktop/media player just as before without any problems. I then switched back to the E3000 and lost the shares again. So I have come to the conclusion, there is definitely some setting within the E3000 that is preventing the file and printer sharing. I just can't figure out what it could be, and am at a point of returning it back to the store as defective. The extra N-speed is useless to me if my devices can't access the network shared content.Also, I tried to set up the UPnP media server feature of the E3000 by attaching USB storage and configuring it via the Linksys web based utility, but my media player is unable to access the content.
I can't see my network shares after upgrade altough everything works fine , the network scanner shows all the atatched devices but in Eplorer when I click Network there is nothing shown on two computers running Win7 64.I did downgraded the firmware back to .01 but still no network .
Up until 2 days ago I've had no problems with my v1 running 1.0.05. I was copying something to my drive and the connection became non-existent. Going into the menus it shows my drive as having full capacity available. Well i konw thats not true. i unplugged it and directly connected it to a PC. All of my info was there. I connected it back to the router and nothing. No shares of any sorts. It shows it detected the drive. Does not show USB speed and does not allow you to create new shares.
I've recently upgraded my home network and now my wdtv can't connect to my shared hdd's on my pc for streaming purposes. Previously I had some piece of **bleep** G router/modem combo from Verizon and I didn't have any problems accessing my network shares, I did have a streaming problem with some .mkv's because the signal was so poor. I Finally dropped some cash on a d-link modem and an linksys E3000 router. Here's the messed up part, if my wdtv is plugged, physically, into my router I can access my shares just fine. I can stream movies with out any lag what so ever. If I go wireless (as I have previously been with the old westell router/modem combo) I can no longer see my network shares. I can connect to the internet and do netflix, pandora, ect. But when I go under network shares all that shows up is my router..
I would like to setup a VPN to allow employees nomad that connect to our network from outside. Our router is a Cisco SA520 I tried different configurations without success ...Here is the current VPN configuration:I created my users IPSec, I can connect remotely, but I do not have network access ... Unable to access network shares, impossible to ping.
I have purchased E2500 and i am having following problems:
1. DHCP client list not showing - only shows when i reboot the router. After some time, the list never shows even when i press refresh button 2. I can only reserve IP when i reboot the router - after some time i cannot do this action also
I have upgraded to latest firmware and also peformed reset as directed by support.
I just purchased an E4200 router. I have four clients on my network and they are all set up for DHCP. I renewed their IPs and they all are connected. "Cisco Connect" reports that I have four clients connected. When I access the router and bring up the DHCP Client Table, there are no entries. There should be four entries. Aftern I enable the logging function, none of the logs have any data in them even after I wait for 45 minutes and use the internet and renew IPs. I am using Firmware Version: 1.0.03. I have the same results for both Chrome and Firefox. I want to be able to set Static IPs but I am hampered by the not having any clients in the DHCP client table.
I have a Wireless N router model F5D8236-4 v2 (01) with firmware 2.00.04 (Nov 12 2008 10:51:08) and it's not showing all issued wireless or Wired IP addresses in DHCP Client List.
They all have IP addresses and connect to the internet through the router, but in the router administration page, they're not listing. The Windows devices all show but most of the Mac devices are not, nor is my XBox 360.
My reason for investigating this is because the router seems to keep losing the Mac devices and a router reboot fixes it, but it shouldn't have this problem because all the Windows devices just seem to work.
According to the support page I have the latest available (dated November 12, 2008 which really seems kinda old to me for a Wireless N router). Are there any plans for a new firmware offering for this modem or have you already deprecated it as "legacy equipment"?
Basically I use the WDTV to stream movies from my PC and external harddrive (which is plugged straight into the router) to my TV. The WDTV has a "Network Shares" section and my PC and harddrive usually appear here.
The only way I can get them to show is to reboot the router each time I want to use the WDTV player.
Is there a setting on the router which I need to enable/disable which will prevent the network shares drop?

I have a client that has a WR2543ND (House) and WDR4300 (Office/Internet) router that are located in two separate buildings about 40ft apart. He has each one hooked up to external antennas connected on the outside of the buildings. Back in December I got WDS working between the two routers and the PC in the house was able to use the Internet in the Office as well as share resources between the office and house computers. Two days ago I was down there working on his network and I was having problems setting up network shares. I discovered I wasn't able to ping from the Office PC to the House PC or vice versa and what's even stranger, I couldn't ping the House PC from the House Router (WR2543ND). I checked WDS status and on the House Router is says "Run" but on the Office Router it says "Int" but the WDS is definitely up because I am able to ping from the Office Router to the House Router, plus I am able to use TeamViewer to connect to the House computer from the Office computer. There are no firewalls enabled on Windows. Lastly the DHCP server is only running on the Office Router.
My company is using an RV016 router as a gateway to our internal network. My end goal is to allow remote users to access network shares via Samba.I've been trying to create a VPN using the router with absolutely no luck. I've tried QuickVPN. I've tried creating a client-to-site group vpn. I've tried creating a client-to-site tunnel vpn. I've tried pptp. Nothing will allow me to establish a VPN connection. Sometimes there is information logged in the router but most of the time there is not.
I have an RV042 using Quick VPN to connect to a remote network. I have port 1723 forwarded to a static IP address on a Windows 7 Pro 64 bit PC. I can establish the VPN and ping a printer but not the Win 7 PC. I can not acccess any shares on the pc via the IP address. It has Norton Antivirus and Windows Firewall. This remote PC replaced a Windows xp PC that allowed access to the shares. I have tried access with a Windows XP Pro and Windows Vista Home Premium PC. Neither have worked.
I upgraded to firmware version 1.0.03 I started to have this weird issue: I have four PCs connected to this wireless router via wireless G. They all run Windows 7 Home Premium. After a few hours I started to notice that the DHCP client table is empty even if all four PCs are connected to the internet. This causes a networking problem because one of the PC serves as a file server and it grants access by IP addresses. Not being able to "see" those computers, my access is denied.
I've installed a RV042 and my terminals cant even ping each other. They have Internet, but they cannot ping each other, or open network shares. It is not a dns problem becouse it does not work with the IP.
I can connect to internet only while wired. my wireless is no longer working. I have a network set up, named with my last name but it does not appear as a network i can connect to in the system tray. Instead there is the name of a network i did not establish (neighbors network??)I cannot connect to that without a security key whihc makes sense. I went into Manage Wireless Networks and mine islisted and marked as connect automatically.
I have a desktop PC where the only internet connection is via a 'USB mobilebroadband dongle'.I have connected the PC via ethernet cable to the ethernet port on a d-link wifi router (which isn't connected to the internet).I'd like to be able to connect other non-PC devices (eg my mobile phone) to the router via wifi in order to connect to the internet.To do this, I gather that one possible solution is to bridge the LAN (not connected to internet) and dongle (connected to internet) connections.My first problem is that in 'Network Connections', only my USBdongle connection is shown (see pic) - there is no icon for the LAN/ethernet. In device manager, the "Atheros AR5007EG Wireless NetworkAdapter" and "Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller" are both showing without any ?
Other info:I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 on a HP Pavilion All-in-one MS200 desktop.
Couple of weeks ago, I bought a net gear n600 dual band router. It's worked perfectly until last night. The network won't show up on any wireless devices in the house. I have restarted and reset it and my modem which is a westell. Sometimes the computer plugged in to the Internet with the Ethernet cord can connect and sometimes it cannot. What is the next step to figuring this out
I reloaded XP on an old laptop I have, a Toshiba Satellite, and it works fine. Problem is when I try to connect to my wireless network, it comes up as being security protected...and it isn't...and never has been. I have other computers connecting just fine, but I can't seem to figure this one out. I don't have a key to enter as there isn't one! I installed a USB wireless adapter, and it works fine, but I don't want to use the adapter on the laptop.
My Macbook Pro connects and mom's Windows 7 laptop connects, and (though having done it manually) and my iPhone connects as well. But my Windows 7 desktop and my dad's Windows 7 laptop don't detect the network.
At my work when I click on Network it immediately shows a full list of all the computers on the network. There's probably about 100. At home when I click network it takes like 30 seconds to do some scan and show like 3 computers. What's the deal?
Some background first. Last night I went trolling around for a solution to an ip address conflict message I receive when I try to go onto Xbox live via a network bridge on my laptop. What I eventually ended up doing was going into my tp-link wireless router settings (not sure of the exact model number as I am not home right now) and reserving two different ip addresses for my laptop and my Xbox using their MAC addresses. It didn't appear to do anything ( now I think possibly because my Xbox needs the same ip as my laptop?). Anyways I tried to go onto Xbox live and it worked at the start (as it always does) and then 30 minutes in, the ip address conflict message came up (usually meaning a disconnect from Xbox live is imminent). But I actually ended up staying online for another 3 hours until the Internet crashed.
Upon further investigation I noticed that my wireless network was not even showing up on my computer, my phone, or any of my roommates computers. I went upstairs to check the wireless router and it was seemingly working correctly (i.e. no flashing lights or anything). Not quite sure what to do. I would go back and change the router settings but I don't think I can without a connection to it.
