got a new laptop and want to move files from an old one.Both are on the same wireless network, with the old laptop with the files having Vista, and the new one has Windows 7.I tried right clicking a folder in Vistaand 'shared' it, but don't see it on the Win 7 laptop?
here is my setup:Old laptop with all my files is running Windows Vista.New laptop I got is running Windows 7.Both are connected on the same wireless network (same router and modem).I am looking for an easy way to copy and paste several folders and gigs worth of music, movies and photos to the new laptop with Windows 7. Is there a step-by-step guide on how to get these two laptops to recognize each other, and then access the files on Vista to copy and paste into Windows 7?
I'm trying to transfer my old files (pics, documents, music) from my 6 year old Macbook Pro to my new Windows 7 desktop that I built about a month ago. I'm having a really hard time getting the files to transfer over. I've tried extensively to network them through my home wireless to no avail. I tried setting up a workgroup and having my mac manually join to no avail. I know there should be a way to transfer these files quickly over my home network.
The real problem I am having is that my mac isn't showing up as a computer on my network on the PC. I can get the pc to show up as a computer on the mac, but it doesn't show my user profile and all the folders are empty. I've gone into the share settings on both machines and made everything as open and shared as possible, still not showing up. Any foolproof way to quickly transfer files between these machines?
I have my Windows 7 computer and my daughters computer with Windows Vista networked over a wired home LAN. For the most part, everything seems to work fine. I can access files on her computer, and she can access files from mine (photos, music, video, etc.). I set up a shortcut icons on her desktop for easy access to specific folders I am sharing on my computer. Unfortunately, when I share a folder on my computer, she is unable to view any files added after I initially shared it. So I routinely have to go in and share the folder again. It's not a huge issue, but it is annoying. The limitation seems to be one way, as I can access newly added files on her computer, without resharing.

I have found many well meaning suggestions to resolve this annoying aspect of networking between Windows 7, Vista and XP but it seems like we are all banging our heads against a brick wall. I have tried every suggestion I can find on other forums but still my Windows 7 computer cannot access my XP Home or Vista machines. The message I see each time I try is as follows:- "\WINXP (or \VISTA) is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have permissions. The account is not authorised to log in from this station." You will of course appreciate that the 'administrator' is myself. I can access files and a printer on Windows 7 from the other two computers providing I place shared files in the public folder ... no problem with this.
I have checked that all three computers have the same Workgroup Name. Yes, I have got Network Discovery turned on. Yes, I have turned on file and printer sharing. Yes, I have turned off Password protected sharing (and tried it turned on). Yes, I have set my network location to Work network. Yes, the computers I am trying to access do show in my network window ... each and everyone of them can be pinged from each other. I even have a little utility called Wireless Network Watcher that shows that the IP addresses, MAC addresses and each computer by name can be seen on the network.
I have one laptop (Windows Vista) and one PC (Windows 7) in my house and I am trying to share folders between them. The problem is I can access my laptop's files from my pc, but I can't access my pc's files from my laptop.
And when I go to Network and Sharing Center, on "View your active networks" part, I click joined to give check mark on Pictures, Music, Videos, Documents, and Printers (the default setting: only printers that got checked). After I checked those all, I click "Save changes". But, if I go back to click "Joined" It was set as default, it is like it doesn't save my setting.
I'm trying to set up a windows 7 laptop and a vista computer on a home network.The vista computer accesses the lptop fine,but the laptop has the computer in the network,when you do a full map, but won't access any files. The cursor changes to a hand over the laptop name in full map, but doesn't on the vista icon?
We are using HPUX server to collect files from switch to our server. Our server connect to cisco router and the cisco connect to X.25 protocol to communicate with switch. My question, how could i collect files from swicthes to our server and what is the command can i used ?.
This is some info about router.

I have a D-Link Gigabit switch and I am trying to transfer files from my laptop (directly connected to switch) to my external hard drive (also connected to switch):The problem is that I get very slow speed for a transfer of a single file. It seems that the network utilization goes to 25%(normal) for just a few seconds and then it drops to 2-3%Please see attached image and propose what I should check.
I got a new laptop for Christmas and set up a new router which is working fine but now I can't access the laptop via the desktop. When I click on the laptop icon on the desktop network area windows asks for a username and password which I never set up and have no idea what the are. Any step by step guide to set up my network properly so I can transfer files back and forth.
First off, for almost ever my two computers (Laptop/Desktop) linked on the same network/home group have been able to transfer files to each other over without any problem. I must have done something when Norton Expired on my Laptop which is causing the problem now. (Both running windows 7)Both computers show up in the network tabs, as normal. From my desktop I can access my laptop like I always could. I can play movies etc. but I can't make any changes or transfer files. As it says "You need permission to perfrom this action."Now from my Laptop, I can also see my Desktop in the network tabs. but I can not view anything on the computer. When I try to browse through the network tabs, I get [Windows cannot access \network error code 0x8007035].
1. I had it working before so I know they are properly connected.
2. Both computers can see eachother
3. My Desktop can browse my laptops files (but not change anything)
4. My Laptop can NOT browse my desktop as it says the network error code
5. Neither Computer has a firewall on
6. Neither Computer is running antivirus software
7. In the Homegroup sharing tabs, both computers are marked as "allowed" in the media streaming options.
I was on vacation last week in Arizona.While there, I transferred my camera pictures to the hard drive. Meanwhile, i configured the laptop to shut down upon lid close. I had to go out for 4 hours and was in a hurry do just closed it. Apparently, it didn't shut down and the heat from the LCD screen radiated into the keyboard, overheating the video chip, frying it. Now I get just a white screen. I want to get my contents off onto a new laptop. VGA output doesn't work. How can I transfer files to new laptop without disassembly?
I have a laptop PC with WiFi, so I download a bunch of stuff on here. Then I have my beast/monster desktop gaming PC with a kick-ass geforce gtx 650 Ti, and an i7 processor, etc etc.... The thing it DOESN'T have is WiFi, or any internet capabilities at all (until I get a WiFi card in it or something).I have some 4 GB movies in my laptop, and so far what I been doing to transfer those movies to my desktop PC is saving it in a USB memory stick from my laptop, then taking the memory stick to the desktop PC and saving it there. I have regular Ethernet cables, would that work? What do I need to do to transfer files from my laptop to my desktop PC more efficiently and fast?
I have to transfer upto 50G of data over a Netgear 300 Mbps N300 router between too laptops both connected wirlessly to the same router. However, I get only 200 - 300 kbps when I transfer data? I get a faster speed when I download files off the web.
I have a laptop I use at home and a mini laptop that I travel with. I record TV shows with the laptop and move them to the mini to watch them on the road.the programs are about 3 gb for a half hour show, 7 gb for an hour. I've been moving them one or two at a time on an 8 gb card, but that's kind of a pain. It takes 5 mins for each half hour show.I have a wireless home network, but that takes an hour to move one half hour show.Is there a faster way to move the files from one computer to another? Like ethernet cards or something?
I love sharing on my home network to transfer files from one computer to the next. However, I will soon have tenants in my house sharing my network ...so they can use my Wi-Fi to get on the internet.I need a solution to give them access to the internet without losing my own network sharing ability.I do not want them accessing my files.I have Windows XP home and a Dlink WBR-2310 router.As I see it, I need to either upgrade to a router with a Guest Zone/Access feature ...OR..upgrade to Windows 7(?) to give myself more networking options (i.e. file sharing where I select the users or set a password). Currently the XP permissions are too general.
I'm trying to transfer files from my wired desktop to my wireless laptop, and smaller files seem to transfer okay. Whenever I try to transfer a really large file, however, the internet and connectivity totally drops on my desktop (which is giving the file) and causes the laptop to lose the file. The desktop computer stays offline for about 1-2 minutes afterward before it either starts up again on its own or I reset the network adapter. I suppose it's important to note as well that the file transfer can fail at the very beginning, in the middle, or even at the very end, but my desktop computer always loses its connection whenever the interruption happens... but sometimes it can successfully get almost all the way through the file transferI tried following some of the steps in this case to confirm that I can ping and do all that jazz to my laptop and all of the services are running, since our problems seem similar. I've disabled all firewalls as well. However, since one computer is actually wired to the router, I don't think the solution will be quite the same
I have a small business network that connects 3 wired pc's and 2 wireless laptops. I am running a point of sale system on the network. I recently replaced the computer I use as a server. The work stations now run the point of sale system so slowly, they almost cannot be used. Both the wired and wireless systems are running slower. Both wired workstations are running Windows XP, both the old and new "server" are running Windows 7 64 bit. Both are Pentium dual core with 6gb of RAM. The old system has a Realtek RTL8168C network card, and the new system has an Intel 82579V network card. I replaced the computer due to other hardware issues. The cable used to connect it to the router is the same. The old machine ran the workstations MUCH faster. Does this have to do with the network card, or some other setting I am missing.I tried to make all the settings exactly the same so my point of sale system would still recognize the new computer.
Router: Linksys WRT54GL Main PC wired HTPC Wireless Win7
I am trying to transfer some blu-ray rips from the Main PC (wired) to the HTPC (wireless), but after 20-30 minutes it give me this error message and it can no longer locate the HTPC. i made sure the HTPC didn't so to "sleep" mode..
Something wrong with my home network or is it time to get a new router/adapter? everything else seems to work fine, except trying to transfer these huge files (10GB-20GB).
I have an issue that I'm not quite sure how to deal with. I had a media server die on me, so I built another one. It is built on Asrock A75 pro4 mobo. I am using the built in lan adapter from the mobo Realtek RTL8111E. At first I had a problem when no other PC could download anything from shares from the server. I could browse the files just fine, but when I tried download anything It would not start for a while and sometimes it would show speed of 16kb/s or something like that and would not budge after that. I re installed the driver did system restore and that partially solved the problem. Now all the pc's except one can download files fine. It is thru wireless network (server is connected with cable to router tho). The media server is running win7 ultimate the laptop that can't download the files is running vista. I tried using different wireless adapters with laptop and standing right by the router and it still wouldn't work. My old server ran also win7 and I had no problems transferring anything from it. I have another pc that runs vista and it doesn't have any issues. Internet works fine on that laptop and also it can download files from other pc's on network fine. The router I'm using is linksys e3000, though i don't think it has anything to do with the problem.
Actually the other pc's can't transfer anything either as of right now, so I would have assume the server is the issue
So I have two Seagate BlackArmor 400 NAS units and I want to transfer a lot of files from one to the other.I can access both through a browser GUI and also are the shares I want to transfer between available in my Network Location in Windows 7. I guess that's the CIFS thing there but not sure.However if I just drag and drop or use something like TeraCopy the speed is very bad. It's like the file actually transfers through my PC which is wireless and not getting great speed.
The Seagate blackarmor has a download manager that supports http and ftp and the share is ftp enabled but I have no idea how it's url would be on local network ( there is no DNS setup for the FTP but it's marked as enabled ). transfer the files between the 2 NAS system without having a PC in between and getting good speed.
0ave a WRT110 that provides the hub between an xp, vista and a windows 7 machine but I can't seem to find a way to share files between them.Mapping a network drive, making sure all permissions are set on all machines Es there something like a service that isn't started that isn't started? and is it not started on all systems. I'm going nuts trying to prepare for the up coming school season so that all my kids can get what they need from their individual bedrooms (no cheating that way).
I'm unable to maintain a connection with an FTP host outside my network through my Cisco 871W Wireless/Wired router. I am able to establish a connection with the external FTP server, but when I attempt to transmit files I get repeated disconnections and failures.
The software running on the device is IOS C870-ADVSECURITYK9-M, Version 12.3(8)YI2 RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1) Synched to technology version 12.3(10.3)T2 System Bootstrap Version 12.3(8r)YI
I know it has to be somewhere in the configuration, but SDM no longer operates and I'm not entirely familiar with the IOS command set. When I remove the Cisco device and plug my computer directly into my ISP network, I am able to send files via FTP with no problems.
I am going back to college and I will need a router. Both my roommate and I were on the same router went over our bandwidth usage a number of times last year. I've done a bit of research and have come up with a few options: Asus rt-n56u, netgear wndr 4500, and the apple airport extreme. Both my desktop and laptop pc so I'm not sure if that effects the outcome. I am going to need a usb port for an ext hdd, which all of them have. All of the routers have a 5hz signal for better streaming. Would I be able to use the apple airport? It seems the have the best reviews. But I question the compatibility and some of the reviews due to possible fanboyism. Also, If I connect my desktop to the router via a crossover cable and have an ext hdd hooked into the router can I transfer files to the ext hdd and stream that data over a 5 hz signal?
I recently got a ea4500, wireless working fine, can connect to the usb storage from different devices fine, but when i try and copy a file to the usb storage, it initially looks like its transferring and registers a file in the usb storage folder. but when i access the usb storage from other devices i cannot find or access the files that i transferred?
I have a Gaming Computer, with a 2x2TB RAID-1 setup, which I use to store .iso files ripped off my game's / movie's disks..Most of the time I'm on my laptop, I have set up a Network Drive to this RAID-1 setup, but when I try to transfer files from the Gaming Computer to my laptop via a network connection, either by wireless G, Ethernet 100mbps, or Ethernet 1gbps, my files get corrupted, this usually happens to larger files e.g over 1GB..But when I transfer the same files to my external hard-drive the files work properly....My computers is networked by a TP-Link 340G....
