I had a customer call me and her desktop (wired connection only) is sending and receiving packets but she still cannot connect to the internet. Customer has tried power cycling her modem, router and desktop with no avail. Her system is running XP.
I have been trying to share drives between my dekstop and laptop using a router. I have connected both PCs to the router and has made changes to the file sharing enability to both. However, when I changed the ip address to 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2 respectively, the one using the ip add 192.168.1.2 could not access internet. And if I set both to default networks, my laptop failed to see the shared drive.
enable file sharing between a XP desktop and a Win 7 64bit laptop? Both computers are on a wireless home network and can only share a wireless printer. I need to open and edit files on both computers from either computer.
How to secure router on my mac - neighbor tapping into my internet service. How do I secure my Linksys router so only my laptop, desktop and iPad can use it? I tried going to 192.168.1.1 but got nothing?
Last night i was changing some settings of my router(linksys WRT54G) trying to assign a gaming console a static ip. I thought i had succeeded and everything was working fine. 12 hours later, it appears everything can no longer connect. all the regular lights of the router are on, but my desktop pc and my wireless laptop seem unable to connect.
Just got a new desktop computer (running windows 7). I'm using a DWA 125 dongle (DLINK) and connecting to a wireless router we just bought about 2 months ago...Now, I did a speed test (www.speedtest.net) with the desktop computer... I'm getting about 8 mb/sI did one with my older latop (intergrated wi-fi)... I'm getting like 17 mb/s ??
Presently I'm using the Wireless 150 DIR 600 router to share a internet connection between my desktop (with LAN cable from LAN port in Desktop PC connected to LAN port in router) and Laptop connecting wireless to router. Now I also want to create a LAN connection between my Desktop (LAN cable connected to router) and Laptop (wireless) using the same router. Is it possible ? If yes, how can do it ?
Earlier my desktop was to b in d same place where the router was der. Everything worked fine. Now I decided to shift my desktop to another room. I have kept the router at the earlier place only. I have brought a 25m long new cat 5 cable. When I connected it to my desktop, the orange led on ethernet port do not light up and the desktop is unable to detect the ethernet cable and hence the internet connection. On the router, a light of ethernet keeps on blinking every 1 second. I was worried whether my ethernet port got fried. So i inserted another ethernet cable, but then the ethernet orange light came and the pc detedted the connection. Therefore I thought the cable might be faulty. Therefore I connected my laptop with that 25m cable. But my laptop detected it and showed the internet connection. But now when i again connect the cable to my desktop, there's no light and the pc does not detect it. However, if i connect the 25m cable to my desktop then during boot the ethernet light on router is stable just as when it is normally connected to the internet. But when i go into windows it starts blinking every 1 second.
My router is MTNL Model No. UT-304R2 Desktop - Asus P7H55, core i5 Laptop- HP 2000 Windows 7 Ultimate on both desktop and laptop.
I can't access my wireless laptop files from my wired desktop. I have tried to set up a homegroup, and it actually worked for a week or two, but now we are unable to access the homegroup or the printer.
I have a Linksys wireless G Router (WRT54G5 model) and I've recently had some problems with it. First problem, I cant find my wireless network from my desktop, but it shows up on my laptop but it wont let me access it from there. The power, wlan, port 1, and internet led lights are all on and green. How can I get my wireless network to show up on my desktop and how can I access it from my laptop? If I unplug my router for 30 seconds and plug it.
I have a wired desktop PC (HP dx2480) running XP SP3 connected to a LinkSys Wireless 4-port router, and a laptop (Lenovo X61) running XP SP3 connected wireless to the same home network (192.168.0.x). The LinkSys connects by cable to a DSL router for internet access. Both PC and laptop get DHCP IPs from the Linksys (which I have hard-coded - mapped MAC to IP). They are on the same Windows Workgroup "HOME". Both Desktop and Laptop have same Windows User Logins. My desktop had a virus attack (trojan), which I removed and re-installed XP SP3 (from HP disks). Since then the PC seems to have "network sharing and discovery issues" on the network.
- The wired PC CAN ping the laptop, but laptop CANNOT ping PC.
- Both laptop and PC CAN access the internet.
- The laptop and PC COULD NOT see each other on Windows Workgroup, or see shares. This got resolved once I added IPX/SPX/NetBios Protocol on both the wired and wireless NICs on both PC/laptop respectively. NOTE: Before adding this protocol, I double-checked that File-Printer Sharing was enabled on both NICs, Windows Firewall had File-Print Sharing as exclusion. I tried everything including disabling firewall on both, disabling McAfee scanning on both, disabling Firewall on Linksys, but nothing worked.
- The laptop CAN see the NAS (Seagate GoFlexHome - connected by cable to LinkSys) using Seagate Dashboard software and direct IP. The PC CANNOT access the NAS using the Dashboard software but CAN access through direct IP. The NAS is named "goflex_home", which both can discover as \goflex_home from explorer.
- The laptop CAN see ITunes Home Share from a NAS, but the PC CANNOT see any home shares on the NAS (or from the laptop). I even added Home Sharing TCP/UDP ports as exceptions on the Firewall on the PC, but it still doesn't work.
- Some blog checking the node type on IP addresses given by DHCP. The laptop has Node Type "Hybrid", and the PC has "Unknown". I even went to PC regedit.exe and modified the and Change EnableProxy to 0 or 1 (instead of 2 that was in the PC as default).
- I have used SG TCPOptimizer on both laptop and PC to revert to Windows default?
I just got new desktop and the wireless internet is about half the speed as my old laptop. The network adapter on the new desktop is 802.11n Wireless LAN Card, the laptop has Atheros AR5B91 adapter. the wireless router is a netgear N300.
Replaced my DLink 655 (had stopped working) with the E4200. Every time I enter a new url, there is a 10 second delay while the 'sending request' message is showing at the bottom of the browser. When the website is connected, there is another 'waiting for xxx' delay for several seconds.I am on a Mac system (laptop and desktop).This never happened with the The delay occurs with wireless or with wired access. Happens with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Does not happen if I plug the desktop directly into my cable modem. I have Optimum Boost which is the fastest ISP in the area (possibly the country).I emptied the cache thinking it is DNS problem, works for a few minutes and then back to the same routine. I've tried every setting I know.
What's the use of paying for the fastest internet access and (supposedly) the fastest router if I have to wait 15 seconds each time I visit a website. Frustrating thing is that this sometimes, not always, even happens when I am going back to a page I just visited (back button on the browser).This has to be router issue since it does not happen when my laptop or desktop is plugged directly into the modem. This does not happen to me at work either. It does not happen when I use Cablevision's wireless network in Nassau county.
No changes made but router will lose all information for IPv connectivity. I have paid twice to support to fix this issue and it still occurs every few months. I tried rebooting router, and doing an IP Release/ Renew and router does not get IP address.
I recently installed an RE1000, which seemed to be working fine. Then, on 3 PC's with no wireless adapter installed we began being prompted for user name and password for the wireless router. Once I unplugged to extender the problem went away. I know what you're thinking: Maybe I just think there's no wireless adapter on these PC's. NO, I looked in device manager and the only network adapter installed is the ethernet adapter. These are all 4+ year old machines with no hardware changes made to them. Wireless adapters are not necessarily standard issue on old towers--even on new towers. The Acer I'm using right now was purchased new in November 2011 and did not come with a wireless adapter installed.

I have a simple home lan setup. Desktop(Windows 7 Ultimate) wired to router and laptop(Win Home BAsic) using WiFi. Both have All Printer and file sharing Enabledhe desktop cann see the Laptop in 'Network' but not the other way around. However, even though I cannot see the Desktop from the Laptop's 'Network' I can access the public folder of the desktop by using : \desktop-pcuserspublic command in cmd or search.Now why Is the Desktop not visible on the Laptop's network(though I can access it) and why can't the Desktop access the Laptop's shared public folder even though it can see it in his network?
I think that's what I want to do. I have an HP desktop with vista and cable high speed modem and a linkys attached to it for wireless. My laptop is a toshiba with wireless running windows 7 and I use it upstairs wireless to connect to the net. There are times I need a file from the desktop and I have to go down and put it on memory stick to copy it over. Is there any way I can access the desktop from the laptop without having to do that? Would need step by step instructions to set it up if it can be done with 2 different operating systems.
