New Computer Will Not Connect To A Particular Network
Dec 20, 2011
new HP 2000 computer he just purchased. I brought it to my house to set it up. No problems connecting to wifi at my home. Downloaded all the updates and got it ready for his house. When I tried connecting to his network, it kept giving me the network key. I know I was entering the correct information because we had his older computer and I copied the exact thing. I had also made a folder when I set up his other computer with his information for his network in it and I was going by that. I tried to automatically connect and I also tried to manually connect. I deleted the name of my network (that worked) and rebooted. It continually gives me the block to put the password in. I brought it back to my house and the wifi connected with no problems. His old toshiba had no problems connecting to his network. I disconnected it and reconnected it. Is there something about the settings I am not doing? Or is it a firewall setting? Is there something in the modem that is conflicting with the new HP. It's a WAP2 Personal with AES Encryption (did not work on that one), where as my network is a WPA Personal with TKIP Encryption (worked on this one). Will that make a difference and if so what do I do about it?
I have a question about my windows systems(XP and Vista) re-connecting to my network folders when my computers restart. I have some shared network folders on my Synology DS410. And then i mapped a network drive to use those folders.But every time i restart my computer i get the message "cannot reconncet all network drives"I have to put in my username and password everytime. I choose Remember login and password.How can i fix this so it automatically connects to these on restart?
FYI... 1 computer - Windows Vista Home Premium 1 computer - Windows XP Home Both connected via wired LAN
My iSCSI drives connect just fine on restart. Just not my mapped network folders.
I have a laptop (win7) and desktop (vista) in a network. The laptop is wireless and the desktop is hard-wired into a d-link router. My computer recently updated and since then I cannot connect to my desktop from my laptop. The desktop shows up in the network map but when I click it, it hangs and says "network path not found". I can ping the IP and the name of the PC from command line but I cannot access it. I have internet connectivity the whole time regardless and I've tried multiple routers.
I have recently become the proud owner of a Sony Xperia P which I would to be able to connect to Wifi in my bedroom. Unfortunately, as my router's WLAN isn't strong enough to reach my room (I get internet on my laptop via ethernet cable) I need to use my laptop as a hotspot to be able to connect my phone. So I set up an ad-hoc network to share my laptop's internet connection via its own Wifi. I'm pretty confident I followed all the required steps accurately (enabled LAN connection sharing, etc), but when I try to connect to my new ad-hoc network on my laptop's list of wireless networks, I just get indefinitely stuck in the "Waiting for the network..." stage. I also tried with WEP security disabled, so no key was required, but to no avail. I know the laptop's wifi works fine as I can connect to my router (when in range) without a problem. Needless to say, my ad-hoc network is also not yet appearing on my phone's wifi connections.Running XP SP3, with Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN.
I have a server webpage hosted on a local linux machine. I can access it by typing the I.P. into my address bar from another computer on the same network.way to connect to my computer on my home network from a computer not on my network.
My Windows XP computer cannot connect to the wirless connection. It used to work before but we installed a new router in our home when I try connecting to the network, it tries to connect but it refreshes and doesnt connect to the internet
I have a wireless network. For some reason my computer seemed to change regarding the settings, and I can't figure out what to do. Usually I can figure things out when the settings go wrong. I have a broadband connection, where it seems to want me to enter a phone number; I have a "LAN or High Speed" connection. Normally I click "Create New Connection", but it doesn't work.
I have a computer on a school network, i recently set up a WDS server to make rebuilding computers allot easier and faster. I created an image for a Inspiron Desktop 560ST but when i tried to redeploy the image back on the exact same computer while connecting to WDS deployment service i get this error.
<Installing windows>WdsClient: An error Occured while obtaining an IP address from the DHCP server. check to ensure that there is an operational DHCP server on this network segment.
Our default IP is not a 169.xxx.xxx.xxx it is 172.xxx.xxx.xxx so thats obviously not right, and then I try typing ipconfig /renew and it waits a super long time and then i get Windows IP Configuration:An Error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.An error occurred while releasing interface LoopBack Pseudo-Interface 1 : The system can not find the file specified. This computer is part of a lab of about 25 computer and every other computer has no problems, even if i take the network cable out of this computer and plug it into the computer right next to it(I'm take it right from one computer to another, i'm not touching the switch end) the computer right next to it is fine. So its not the switch or the cable.
So I'm currently running window 7 on my msi GT683-R. As of yesterday my internet stopped working, however only on my msi. I'm currently typing this on a borrowed mac using the same network that doesn't work on the other device. It also works on my iPhone. The problem is, neither the wifi nor the wired works on my MSI. I made sure DHCP was on, ran a TCP/IP stack reset, a winsock reset, have restarted my computer/router multiple times, and disabled bonjour but nothing seems to work.
I have a Belkin 150 router connected to my modem. I use the wifi in my room. But recently I messed up in the router's page which i dont remember. Now I can't connect my computer to my own network. I am using my friend's network right now. The conenction is shown as "Limited." All the solutions say to type one IP adress or the other to the browser but when connection to my router is not there.
I have a wireless router. The first time I connected my computer to it, it worked. I went in to change the network password, and after that, it stopped working. Every single other device I have will connect, including other laptops, but this one won't. In the network and sharing center it shows that my network is available, but it will not connect. I have tried everything I can think of. I have looked all over the internet, nd still can't figure it out!!!! My computer's wifi IS on so its not that. The only thing that the trouble shooter tells me to do is unplug the router and restart it and that has not worked after several tries. Also is there a way to reset the computers recognition of networks? Im wondering if that would work if I could completely restart the process again, but I dont know how to get to that. I have a dell inspiron with windows 7.
From our Exchange server, I am completely unable to communicate with one of our partner's mail server. I cannot ping it by either the host name or IP address. Trace route times out at the final hop. The firewall is disabled, and antivirus (ESET) is temporarily disabled. I cannot access the IP through the web browser either, everything times out.However, every other computer on our network can connect fine. I haven't seen any other problems with any other IP addresses, it seems to be only this one that I can't connect to, and only from our Exchange server. All computers are going through the same gateway, using the same internet connection, and using the same DNS servers.The computer that I'm having the problem on is a static IP. All settings look correct, and match another server that I can access the IP from.I've checked the hosts file for anything, and it is in it's default state.
I try to maintain a sizable network at my workplace. We have 10 desktops, 3 laptops (sometimes more) 4 printers/fax, etc.etc. I have just ordered a new HP Pavilion Slim-line S5000 Series with Windows 7 Pro. I cannot get it to connect to the Network. I have set up the server (which runs windows server 2008) with an account called "communications" I have named the computer "communications". I go to the system and security>system: computer name,domain, workgroup settings>change settings. I enter all the information correctly, and it tells me it cannont find the network path. This is happening on this brand new computer, and our old dell optiplex 760 (running windows vista pro). We use a netgear pro-safe 24 port 10/100 switch hub, and a linksys wireless G broadband router model WRT54GS.
I have just moved apartments and am trying to connect to the internet. The problem is that I can see the network I need to connect to and I am putting in the correct network key but it just won't let me connect to it. There are three other computers using the wireless so it isn't the modem... and my iPhone is working on it. I am wondering if it has something to do with the IP... I do not really understand any computer stuff but I am desperate for this to be fixed because I am in the middle of mid-terms.
The computer I am using won't connect any of the routers I've tried (one innoband and two sonicwall tz100's, all of which work with other computers), even though it does connect to the internet through the ethernet port. It is a Dell optiplex 980
i am unable to connect to some lan computers in my office. when i go to start ---> Run ---> \192.168.0.24 or else...(lan computer ip) after 10/15 seconds a popup window comes and says (network path not found). but some systems i can easily access through this procedure
I am trying to transfer files from my laptop to my desktop, but when I open the 'network' folder from the start menu to access the desktop from the laptop, the desktop computer is not shown. I ensured that the workgroup names are the same, all sharing is turned on on both computers in Network and Sharing Center, since it is a private network, I checked the router settings and nothing seems to be wrong. The desktop is running Windows Vista Business x86 and the laptop is running Windows 7 Home Premium x64, so there is no way to make a Homegroup connection. However, I can see the laptop computer from the desktop's network folder. I click on it to gain access, but I get an error message: "Network Error, Windows cannot access \****-PC, check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. Error code: 0x80070035 The network path was not found." have checked all wiring, router settings, and nic card settings, have done a successful ping, even Network and Sharing Center, I have also checked sharing permissions and permission levels, I see nothing that could possibly affect the access of the computers.
The only thing I can think of is that when I click on the 'Network ID' button under the Computer Name tab in System Properties on the desktop, it asks join a domain or workgroup, it will not let me save the selection "This is a home computer; it's not part of a business network," that may or may not be the issue, because it will only remain on "This computer is part of a business network" probably because I am running Windows Vista Business.
I have just reformatted my windows 7 ultimate. I have installed the Ethernet driver that came in the motherboard utilities CD. But the problem is computer is not picking up my network and its just saying unidentified public network and i cannot connect to the internet.The modem i use is Netgear cable voice gateway CVG824G. The connection is cable internet.
I have a desktop and 2 laptops connected to a wireless router on my home network. I used to be able to get internet access on all 3 computers, but suddenly one day I can't get on the internet on my desktop. The 2 laptops have no problem getting on. I am at a total loss as to what to do. I am really good with computers, but networking is all new to me
somehow connecting my PC to my home network as if it was wired. Having a wired connection just won't work because my PC is far away from my modem and router. The reason I want to connect it wired is because I am getting terrible speeds, and the slowest. [URL]
I've just reinstalled XP and I can't connect to the home network, to the router, or the internet, even if I try to take the connection to my computer directly.In Device Manager the Ethernet Port is a Question Mark and I can't find the Drivers anywhere
I changed my ISP to "Clear.com" and now one, seldom used, Win7 computer will not connect to the wireless network. I have two other desktops hardwired and two laptops on the wireless that work fine. The two laptops are in the same room as the Clear 'modem/router', while the Win7 box is not, if that matters. The Win7 box worked in that location when I was on the cable and had a separate wireless router.The box that will not connect, does show that the wireless connection is availableand the adapter shows to be working properly in Device Manager.
how to connect a adsl modem to a computer network using a switch with a server.I have a network with a server and about ten clients computers all connected through a switch, the server has an IP 192.168.1.1 as its gateway. I want to connect adsl modem to the switch so that all the computers can have access to the net, but the adsl too has 192.168.1.1 as its IP.
We have been having a problem with one computer on our network unable to detect our network, or when it rarely does connect, it only has one bar and barely works.The files we attached are one of the times it could connect, when we finally caught it at the right time.We have a total of five computers/laptops on our network connected at different times. We recently updated the router and we've updated the drivers for the network adapter on the problem computer.Neither has worked.The computer was moved here a few months ago and because of condensation the graphics card was destroyed. We took it to a computer repair shop (which is how we found this out) and they installed a new graphics card. It hasn't worked since it got here.That computer was traditionally used for gaming (before it moved here) but if we can get into an online game, our ping is really high, in the 100s.
I have a desktop computer which is connected to the router by cable, but when this computer is on I can't connect to the wireless network with any other devices.When I turn the main computer off though I can connect fine with any wireless device.

Reset Encryption from WEP to WPA/WPA2 Personal.Connected Vaio on Wifi using WPA2. Removed ethernet cable and connection was good at 54MB/s.Completed Windows Update
I'm desperately trying to set up my old D-Link DI-524 on my parent's Toshiba laptop...I'm visiting and going thru withdrawals! I've installed it, run the wizard etc but it doesn't work...not even wired. I've tried various cable configurations and I get nothing. Both cables are good and work just fine connected to the modem. I've reset it a few times, upgraded the firmware and still nothing...I'd think I'd at least get it to work hard wired. My laptop can see the network I set up even...but no data transmission. I'm not a wireless expert, but I need to become one fast!
