I am having trouble connecting to my home computer from my work computer via the Windows Remote Desktop Connection app.On my home computer (win 7 pro) I have:
1. Allowed incoming remote desktop connections
2. Verified that the firewall is open for RDC
3. Forwarded port 3389 on my router to my devices static IP
4.Verified that I am using the correct IP (Router has a dynamic IP but I called home and had my wife read the current IP # from whatismyip.com)
5. Setup an account on the home computer that is password protected
I am connecting from a win XP pro computer.I receive 0% packet loss with reasonable time delay when pinging my home IP from the work computer.I also asked a family member to try from a different location (using Vista Ultimate) with the same result Error is that connection is never established and I am never prompted to logon to the home computer.I can connect via RDC when on the home network.
i have a local cable internet connection(no modem,no router) which i plug in the back of my cpu and its all seT.now,it is for my desktop but when i insert that cable in my laptop.,it says username and password incorrect.i called up my ISP and he said i can use my internet only on my desktop and not on any other computer.is there a way out of it? can i use that internet on my laptop somehow? i dont wanna use the internet on both(laptop and desktop)so im not asking for something complicated.
I've been happily using a desktop PC wired into a router (using an ethernet cable) as well as a laptop that connects wirelessly to the router. This setup has been working fine since I started with it a few weeks ago.
On Friday evening the desktop PC stopped being able to connect to the internet and hasn't been working since. The laptop is able to connect fine wirelessly.
The router light seems to indicate that the ethernet connection is ok. I've tried connecting wirelessly from the desktop PC but that doesn't work either - the Netgear wireless usb adaptor won't open from within Windows as it usually would do.
Nothing has changed to the hardware setup (I've checked all connections) so I wonder if this is a software problem caused by a virus or maybe by Windows updates?
I've just had a custom computer built and I seem to have a problem with my wireless internet connection. I have a Realtek 8185 extensible 802.11b/g wireless adapter. My computer recognizes my house's network and is connected to the internet with a good connection, but when I open up my web browser it takes a very long time for the page to load and sometimes never does. The laptop I'm on right now is connected to the same internet and it is running just fine. I've uninstalled the device and rebooted to have the driver reinstalled but the problem still occurs.
My question is how can i turn this adapter that i get internet from for my desktop INTO wifi so i can use my tablet?right now the desktop is the only computer with internet since it has an adapter.what do i need to make a WIFI signal from the computer? is there a usb stick or router i can buy?
I want to share my adsl connection that is in my laptop running xp 32bit sp2, to my desktop pc running win 7 64 bit sp1. I also have xp in another hdd in the desktop from which i have connected the laptop with firewire. But win7 does not allow firewire networking. I don't wanna buy any new hardware.
I leave on one of my computers on all the time, an Acer desktop with Windows XP. I also have two laptops. I have Verizon DSL and a linksy wireless G router. When we have a power outage the Acer desk top loses it's internet connection. Trying to reconnect the connection takes hours. Even when we finally get it back we have no idea how we did it. The laptops which of course were off have no problem.
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.
I have a Sony VAIO desktop, 5 years old running windows XP. Recently, I started getting ntoskrnl32 missing and refused to boot. My local computer guy said that it is a hard disk problem and ended up putting new hard disks and reinstalled XP. But I keep internet connection after about 5-10 minutes. If I disable and enable "Local Area Connection" it works for sometime and stops again. I have a Cisco wireless router that I use. I use that to browse with my iPhone as well.
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"
To use Remote Desktop Connection, is it really this easy:Open up remote desktop connection on your Host PC --- type the IP of the computer you want to access, then click connect --- As long as "Allow Remote Desktop" is enabled on the PC you are trying to connect to, your attempt will be successful
I opened a computer in other network via remote desktop(because I forwarded port in router)....and tried to access other computers in the network via remote desktop again from that computer but after I done, I don't know how to close the secondary remote desktop. There was one close button on the top, but if "close" it, whole rdp connection was closed. The secondary rdp connection is still open in the computer.
While I am connected to the internet, whether surfing the web or playing a game, I randomly get disconnected with a "No Network Connection" error on the network access icon on my toolbar. However, other computers that are networked (both wireless and wired) do not receive a disturbance in the connection. When I refresh or look for a new connection, I continue to get the same error and the troubleshooting tools fails to find a fix. The only way this seems to fix is rebooting the computer. Sometimes it happens multiple times in a row, but consistently happens between 1-2 times a day.I don't know if this is a coincidence or not, but it seems to happen when I'm doing stuff that could "stress" the connection, like downloading something or running a game while also browsing the web[CODE]
I recently got a (new) Dell Inspiron 570 desktop. It didn't come with a wireless adapter, so I picked up a (new) TP-Link TL-WN781ND Wireless N PCIe adapter. Easy installation, worked immediately. Connection's not perfect, but I get 3 bars from across a house so it's about what I expected.Unfortunately, every little bit the connection drops. Sometimes it comes back within seconds, sometimes it lasts for several minutes; sometimes I won't notice it happening for hours, sometimes it drops every few seconds. There are two other computers on the network that don't suffer connection issues, and I've been able to test with my iPod that it's still connected at the same moment as my Dell is not.I tried updating the driver automatically, which oddly enough installed the driver for an Atheros AR9285, a different wireless adapter; and although everything seemed to still be working I gave it long enough to make sure the problem was still there and downloaded the correct driver from TP-Link's site, which didn't fix it either.
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.

I have a problem connecting to VPS with Windows XP Remote Desktop Connection.The error I'm getting is:"Remote Desktop Disconnected - The remote connection has timed out. Please try connecting to the remote computer again."I am not behind any network, firewall, router...I tried to turn off firewall and antivirus programs to see if they are blocking it. It didn't work.I could find from Microsoft support site refer to the server side configuration. But I know problem isn't with server, because I am able to connect from another PC (notebook running windows 7 with wireless connection). It is working straightforward with default settings.Are there any settings that need to be changed in Windows XP for RDC to work?
I am running a virtual machine with 6 GB of ram with OS Windows 7 64 bit.I turned on remote desktop connection made sure firewall is off and even enabled ISS.But I cant connect to it from my main PC or any other PC.Is it because I have the same IP on the VM? Because I want to sell these VM's as dedicated servers but it wont work.
A user is trying to remote to her desktop with a small Dell Latitude netbook through remote desktop connection via a work VPN. Both her laptop and her desktop have working sound; however, when connected to her desktop through her laptop, no sound can be heard. It says there there are no audio devices detected. Obviously the drivers are installed on the desktop.
My Windows 7 desktop cannot use the ethernet connection for some reason while it works just fine on my Macbook Pro. When I run ipconfig in CMD I'm seeing a 169 IP address which from my googling of the issue I understand is invalid. When I run network diagnostics to try to fix it the result is that "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration, and that this is now FIXED. My network and sharing center screen even claims I have internet access for a few seconds (instead of a red x between the network and internet icons) before dropping out again.I've been trying all kinds of stuff to try to fix this like ipconfig /release and /renew but this doesn't work because it says an address hasn't been associated with the network endpoint and so no operation can be performed "while it has its media disconnected."
Is it possible to find out the IP address of a PC connecting via Remote Desktop Connection.Running XP Pro on a network,I have admin rights to the PC's, but no direct access to the servers.Event viewer shows some details, but no IP address.

Actually i was having an windows 2003 server with an public ip at my office... i had hosted a new site into that server ( iis ) in order to open the site it needs a vpn connection to read database remotely! now the problem here is after giving vpn connection i was unable to connect to the server through remote desktop from my home! if i need to connect to the server i need to setup the vpn connection at home also.. so is there any solution on how to connect to remote desktop even if vpn is connected.!
I got a used computer from my relatives. When i enable my local area connection then it says aqcuiring ip adress for a while. Eventually it stops trying and says network cable unplugged. It worked fine at my relatives place, but not at my place.
