Severe % Dropped Packets On XP Machine When Windows 7 Machine On Network Not Switch

Aug 2, 2011

I have a strange error on my home network that I cannot find a solution to.I have an Huawei SmartAX MT882 from TalkTalk acting as a modem connected to a D-Link DSL-G624T acting as a router/switch. Connected to the D-Link I have a Windows 7 Pro machine (64-bit, SP1) and an XP (home i think) machine (sp 2 i think).The SmartAX modem is set up to perform DHCP and DNS relaying and the D-Link has DHCP turned off and DNS relay turned off.The Win7 machine can access the network, get an IP address and access the internet without problems, regardless as to the status of the XP machine.The XP machine can access the network, get an IP address and access the internet with no problems ONLY of the win7 is powered up. When the win7 machine is off, the XP machine seems to drop about 25% of the ping packets between it and the D-Link router and has no internet access (because of this i assume). [code]

Installed Network Printer On Windows 7 Machine / Now XP Machine Won't Print To It

Jul 20, 2011

New Win-7 machine set up. I used the printer set-up wizard to install a networked printer in the new machine with absolutely no problem. Proved it would print from that machine.Now, I get a call informing me that her old XP machine, which had been printing to the network printer with no problems, will no longer print.Documents go into the print queue, but they don't get printed.No error messages show up.I did some messing around via remote access, and finally removed the printer with the intention of reinstalling it.Scanning for network printers turned up several redundant instances of the same printer with different names. Some are identified as "invalid" some a "access denied". Bottom line. I can't get any of the selections to install.On the Win-7 machine I did find a window that indicated that the printer is designated as being shared, but I didn't explicitly set it for sharing when I installed it. Also, I somehow got to a window that told me that for printers that were to be shared with other versions of windows I could optionally install drivers to support such machines. Didn't have the driver disk handy and took the window down. Now I can't even find it again.I need sorting this all out.Part of the problem is that out there in "network land" there are redundant remnants of previous installations that are being remembered inappropriately.

Windows 7 Machine Does Not Detect Win Xp Machine

Apr 29, 2012

I have a network problem. My windows 7 machine is not detecting win xp machine whereas win xp machine is detecting win 7 machine. They are in the same workgroup named Home. And the networking system is set to work. I have left the homegroup I was previously in. I enabled file sharing for devices that use 40 bit and 50 bit encryption. On XP I have enabled NetBios over TCP/IP. File sharing is enabled on both computers. I think it's something obvious as both instalations on different computers are really fresh and both windows haven't been tampered with.

Windows XP Machine Not Visible On The Network?

Oct 8, 2012

My home network, consists of a bunch of Win 7 computers and 2 XP machines. One XP machine is a netbook, it's rarely on and presents no issues.Here's the problem I'm having with the other XP machine:-My Win XP PC does not show up in the list of networked computers on any of the other machines on my home network.-But I can still access the shared folders by going to start and typing in \computer name.Win 7 will open a folder containing all the shared folders and I have no problem accessing (and modifying) any of its contents.-I also can access the PC via a VNC client set up on another machine and even have ports properly configured to access it from out of the house-I use this PC as a server to stream music to my iPhone via subsonic. No problem here either-I can access all the other computers from the XP machine in question.Since I can still get to the files this wouldn't be a big deal, except:-I can't map a network drive to the XP machine from the other PCs and I need to-I have an HTPC computer whose software can't find this XP machine because it's not there

Home Network :: Windows 7 Asking For Password On XP Machine?

Oct 9, 2012

I have 2 windows 7 laptops running wireless and a windows xp desktop connected by wire to linksys router. The desktop has no problems accessing the other computers.One laptop has no problem accessing the other computers on the network. The other laptop has trouble with the windows XP machine. It asks for login info, which there is none. I tested with the laptop wired and it seemed to access it normally. Also, it is not consistant. It sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. I have gone through other posts and made sure that password requirement was off

New Windows 7 Machine Will Not Connect At Different Location - Unidentified Network

Nov 15, 2012

I have been working with a friend set up a brand new laptop with Win-7 Home Premium (64 bit) preinstalled. I did the initial set-up at my home, with the machine connected via broadband internet cable to my router. I had absolutely no problem getting it to connect with the internet. Didn't bother to try getting the thing going wirelessly at my location. During the initial setup, I selected "home" as the network type (as opposed to public, etc.)But, when I took the machine to the owner's home, it wouldn't connect via her broadband modem.

Mousing over the network icon in the tray area brings up a tool-tip baloon, "Unidentified Network, No internet access). Opening the Sharing Center shows the network as "Unidentified Network, Public Network. None of the settings accessible to me from that point seemed useful or relevant.I have not been able to find appropriate settings to redefine the network type, etc. Her old machine, which is in the process of dying, is still able to connect, and I'm using the same cable to connect both machines. To top it off, I very recently upgraded my own laptop to Win-7, so I took it over there and it exhibits the same problem. And, if I bring her machine back to my house it connects right up with no fuss at all.

Losing Network Share After Windows 7 Machine Sleeps

Mar 30, 2011

I have a Windows 7 PC and a Windows XP PC that I’m sharing files on. All was well for a while, but I’ve started to lose connectivity between computers when one goes into sleep mode. Not sure at this point if it’s the XP machine or the Windows 7 Machine that’s causing the problem.

Networking XP With Windows 7 Machine

May 4, 2012

I am trying to link a Windows 7 machine with a laptop running Windows XP. The workgroup on both computers is the same. On the Win7 machine, I have a couple of folders set to be shared. The first is the C Drive and the share name is C-drive. The second is Quickbooks that I have named Quickbooks. On the XP machine, I went to map network drive and in the blank typed \Remote1C-drive. It asked for username and password and just like that we were connected. But I can't see all of the files on this drive. I don't even see all of the folders - one of which is Quickbooks. So I tried \Remote1Quickbooks and Windows XP couldn't find that path even though I'm positive that folder is shared on Win7. So no matter what I try, I can't see this folder on the XP machine, I even tried copying this folder to other locations around the computer and setting up shares in hope that something would work, but it never did. So I went back to the C Drive share on the XP machine. I tried to go in reverse, creating a file and putting it on the root of the c drive (I did this on the XP machine, but the file should have actually been located on the Win7 machine. When I check Win7, the file didn't exist. So I tried the other way. I right clicked on the c drive in Win7 and created a new bitmap image file. Back to the XP laptop, that file doesn't show. But if I look at the c-drive on Win7 from the xp machine, I see several other folders and some of them like Program Files contains actual files. But some of them are just empty such as \Remote1C.

Windows 7 Machine - Block From WAN But Not LAN

Jun 29, 2011

I have a Windows 7 machine connected to my TV set. I want this machine to act as much as an appliance and as little as a PC as possible. To that end, I want it to be able to access my NAS disk, but not the Internet. Internet = annoying update messages (think Adobe), viruses, crap.I don't know if this is a setting that I can do in Win7 or in the DI-Link AirPlusG router thing

Setting Up A Dedicated Firewall Machine On A Switch?

Jan 29, 2012

this company uses Vyatta firewalls, which are dedicated boxes. So I was sent home with a Dell PowerConnect 5448 (a 48 port switch) with the project of getting a similar setup going with the computers i have at home. I have the switch set up, everything's on VLAN1, management IP is 192.168.2., Default Gateway is, and the switch is properly sharing the my internet connection between three computers. That part was easy. So now, one of them is going to be either reformatted and set up with Vyatta, or I'm going to virtualize it. Either way, I need to route all the traffic through that firewall box before it goes to anything else on the switch so I can have a functional firewall.

Windows 7 Computer Doesn't See XP Machine In Same Workgroup

Jan 23, 2011

I have an XP and a Windows 7 on network (put them in the same Group). I can see the Win7 machine on the XP computer,, accesss files from it. But the XP computer does not show up on Windows7. File sharing was enabled in both. In another post TerryNet asked for the following info (nbtstat -n and IPCONFIG /ALL) from both machines. I thought I will post them assuming I have similar issue as in the previous post. here are the details of these two commands from the two machines.

Can't Remote Desktop In From IMac Into Windows Machine

Feb 9, 2012

I have a Win 7 machine with Win SBS 2011 in my office and an iMac. The Win machine is being setup for Exchange 2010. My problem is this: I can't Remote Desktop in from my iMac into the Win machine, but CAN when outside the network.The Win7 machine has a static IP, the iMac a dynamic. When I access the internal part of my router I can only see my iMac. I get a "can't connect to win-based machine" error when I try to Remote Connect.The only thing I can think is that using the same gateway is somehow messing things up? I've had two techs try to figure this out and they're both stumped.I was maybe thinking that since both comps are going out the same gateway that I should try anc configure the iMac to try and RDC on a different port, since maybe the iMac is listening on 3389 and sending the RDC back to itself?

D-Link DIR-655 :: Can't Connect A Windows 7 Machine To Internet

Mar 29, 2013

I have a DIR-655 B1 with FW 2.05.I have different computers/phones connected to internet via the router, both via wifi and ethernet. I have Linux/Windows 7/Android and iOS units. Two weeks ago one of my Windows 7 laptops did not connect to internet and I thought it was the computer. I did a lot of troubleshooting the computer, still did not work at home. When I brought the laptop to a friend it work directly. Now I started to think that it was the router that was the problem. On the status page I can see that the machine got an IP address in the "LAN Computers" part. I can confirm in the laptop that it received the same IP address via DHCP.

I have look around in the menus but can not find anything that should make this computer not connect. I can not even login to the router via this computer.

Windows XP Machine Connected To Router Wirelessly But Cannot Be Pinged

Windows 2003 R2 Server machine cannot be pinged, not XP? I'm running a highly modified version of Windows 2003 R2 to make use of an old PC. It connects beautifully to a Verizon router (I can browse the Internet), but I can't figure out how to share folders on my network. I have a Macbook and Win7 machine and both cannot see this old PC on the network. I have tried to ping the old PC from my Win7 machine, and it will only timeout. Below is some relevant output from the old PC

Cisco AAA/Identity/Nac :: ACS 5.3 Configured Machine Authentication For A Windows 7

Aug 5, 2012

I am using ACS 5.3. I have succesfully configured Machine Authentication for a Windows 7 laptop using EAP-TLS. The ACS is configured with an Active Directory external identity store where the Windows 7 laptop is configured as part of the domain. I'm pretty sure that the ACS was using the AD to authenticate the laptop's name because at first the authentications were failing because I had the Certificate Authentication Profile configured to look at an attribute in the client certificate that was empty. When I fixed that, the authentication suceeded.
I started doing some failure testing so I disconnected the Domain Controller from the network. Sure enough, the ACS shows the Active Directory external store is in the Disconnected State.I then went to my Windows 7 laptop and disconnected the wireless connection and connected it again, expecting it to fail because the AD is down. But it succeeded! My Win 7 laptop is accessing the network wirelessly through a Lightweight AP and 5508 WLC. The WLAN Session Timeout was set for 30 minutes. So even with the AD disconnected, every 30 minutes, the ACS log showed a successful EAP-TLS authentication. I then changed the WLAN Session Timeout to 2 hours 10 minutes. Same thing, every 2 hours 10 minutes, a succesfull EAP-TLS authentication. I really don't know how the authentications are succeeding when the AD is not even connected. Is there a cache in the ACS?

Windows 7 Machine No Longer Sees Share From WHSV1

Sep 23, 2011

I've been running WHSV1 for at least 3 years now without any problems. Upgraded my client to Windows 7 and stream movies etc.. no issues at all. I gave "guest" account enabled with full access on the WHS server machine and just mapped theshares on my laptop..Anyway, I did some updates on my windows7 laptop and now the computer can no longer see the "server" machine."Server" appears in "other devices" in windows explorer but I can't do anything with it. Just takes me to a page by godaddy.Also, I can no longer use RDP from within my own network! Says the SERVER machine does not exist.I can log in to the server just fine using logmein.

Also, made sure the windows machine has the network that it joined set to "home." I've had a similar problem years ago when I used to use zone alarm but I don't know how to fix it now. It's as if a firewall is blocking it or something.

Cisco Infrastructure :: High CPU Usage / Dropped Packets - Switch Blade WS-CBS3120X-S

Jun 25, 2012

I have a couple of Switches Blade 3120, working as active-standby model (HSRP) on a new site deployment. There are other 20 sites more or less, working on the same model, without issues. But in this one, we are seeing a high cpu usage. The traffic going through the platform is 600Mbps (on peaks), and in this case we have 40% of CPU usage. Traffic should be close to 3 Gbps. When we tried to send the whole traffic through the platform, active switch began to drop packets on the majority of interfaces.
When we analyze the CPU usage, there is a special process called "HL3U bkgrd proce" always have the most CPU use, but we do not know what concerns. We do not know if it is caused because there are PBRs configured. It should not matter. How I mentioned, there are other sites working fine and have had always the same PBR number.
What is causing the high usage?. Is there a special debug we could to perform to diagnose the issue?. Also, we have seen a high interrupt CPU usage (9% in this case).

Windows 7 Pro 64bit Machine - Wireless Connection Very Slow And Dropping Regularly

Dec 31, 2011

It's a Windows 7 Pro 64bit machine with a (newly installed) Asus P8H67 pro motherboard and an Edimax ew-7612pln pci-e card, the router is a thompson 585v8 router with the latest firmware on (upgraded as part of troubleshooting). I upgraded the wireless card drivers one time whilst it was disconnected, it appeared to work for a few hours but then dropped again it also went through a phase of connecting to the router as an 'unidentified network' with no internet access although I don't believe it was attaining an IP address. When it was connected the internet was pretty slow and anything like a file down load would knock it off completely. There were no errors at the time of disconnection in the event log (bar a DNS error or two saying it could not locate the website I was trying to get to before it failed), however the only information type events I noted were a few services stopping and starting and an odd one regarding the host not being able to find the 'master browser' which was identified as another laptop on the wireless network.

The machines are not in the same work group or in a domain, all other laptops and devices on the network work fine and are very stable - as was this one up until a couple of weeks ago. I've uninstalled a couple of pieces of software that were recently installed ; VMware player (which added virtual NICs upon installation and funnily enough made the wireless reconnect after a few hours of downtime upon installation...but the effect was shortlived) and some asus mobo utilities.

Windows 7 - Connect Virtual Machine To Host Via IEEE1394 / USB Or Serial Port

May 15, 2013

I have a host machine (Laptop, Win 7 Home Premium x64) running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on VMWare Workstation 9. I've got this system set up for UMDF driver development, because I need a target machine to debug drivers on. However, because I'm developing drivers for Win 7 (x86 and x64), I cannot connect to the virtual machine on via a simple network connection. Connection methods are outlined here.

I have tried a few different pieces of software (mostly Eltima software), and have Google'd every combination of phrases that I can think of. I can't find any information on this anywhere. I don't just need to share data between the machines, I need a more "physical" connection.

Does any know how to do this, or if there's another (preferably more simple) way of doing it?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3550 - Export Mac Address From Switch To Local Machine?

Jan 8, 2013

I am working on Cisco 3550 switch on a certain requirement. I have got an access point connected to the switch and few mobile phones connected to the access point. I get the list of mac addresses connected to the switch ( Both access point's mac address & the clients addresses) by "show mac-address table dynamic" command. However, i am unable/confused to get the output of the following scenarios:
1. I would require to export the mac address from the switch to the local machine in any format (May be by using an SNMP tool, if available) so that the same needs to be used in my C# for development.What would be the way for the same ?
2. The mac address in the mac address table doesn't get updated dynamically. (Eg Scenario: A wifi client gets connected to an access point which inturn is connected to the switch, the mac address of the client shows up in the switch table. However if the client is disconnected, the client's mac address would still be displayed in the switch table )

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Getting DHCP Reservation To Work Properly With Windows 7 Machine

Jun 7, 2011

I have the e4200 and I am having trouble getting DHCP reservation to work properly with my Windows 7 machines. Perhaps there is a step that I am missing. Basically I go to the DHCP reservation setup page, select my machine and add it to the reservation table. Then I save the changes. As soon as I do this my computer goes offline. If I reboot my machine, it is still offline. I've tried the same procedure to reserve the IP address for my phone and it works fine so I wonder if the problem is with Win7.
