At random times the network cable is apparently unplugged but then it reconnects and then I cant receive anything.I disconnect the LAN then reconnect and then it works again. This is on a winXp computer.
I'm running Windows Vista on a Dell Laptop. Normally I just use wireless wherever I am but now I need to hard wire to the computer. It was initially working for a few minutes but then the connection dropped. Now whenever I plug the cable in, it shows it as being connected but comes up as local only so I can't browse or do anything.
I have tried:
-Restarting the machine -Ensuring that windows was picking up the IP addresses automatically -Checking the connection on another computer, works fine. -Disabling the IpV6 -Disabling/Enabling the LAN connection in the Manage network connections setup -Uninstalling, re installing the driver for the ethernet adapter -System Restore
I've also tried in safe mode with networking and have disabled any firewalls that were running.Again, most of the time I never use the hard wired connection, but whenever I have, it hasn't had any problems until now.It always comes up as being connected, but says local only.
I was using firefox this morning and my desktop suddenly just stopped connecting to the internet. I unplugged the ethernet cord and tried it on my laptop and it connects to the internet fine using the same ethernet cord. I have on-campus internet, so there is no router or anything for me to try resetting. I tried the windows 7 troubleshooter and it said to reset the router, but there is no router to resetOn the non-connecting computer, I can ping the IP address and the default gateway address, but not the DNS servers or something like yahoo
Is there a free version of a program that would allow to find out an IP address of a person on an IM (gg, msn messenger and others)?Is there a firewall I could use for this? [URL]but it doesn't seem to work...? To access image log you need ... file name, folder and password. For file name do I put extension too? and for folder what do i put?
I bought a "Nexxt Solutions 8 ports Ethernet Switch" and it only allows me to use the internet on the first computer that I plug into one of the Lan ports. I get a Limited Connection MessageI did some research and found something about a DHCP Server and automatic IP assignment, but I can't find a comprehensive tutorial on how to setup this.I'm sure the solution is simple.
Just finished building my new computer yesterday - i installed windows 7 and all the motherboard drivers etc - everything went smoothly. I then plugged in my ethernet cable but saw that in normal mode my computer had very slow internet. I went into safe mode with networking and tried the internet there and it was its normal speed. Obviously something is booting up in normal mode that is stopping/limiting the connection. I uninstalled norton (came with the motherboard drivers) using the uninstall norton tool, i also uninstalled any other virus protection and disabled my computers firewall but to no avail - it's still real slow.
MY ISP is AT&T. I have their Westell DSL modem, with a bridged connection to a Linksys wireless router. The router is connected via ethernet to a dead computer: a 7 year-old Dell desktop that will boot up but shut down right away. I have been able to connect multiple laptops wirelessly to this network. I thought an ethernet connection was required in a home network such as mine? The cable has been plugged into a dead computer for several months and frankly I'd like to get rid of the desktop. What exactly is the ethernet requirement - just to be plugged into a port? Could I theoretically just yank the ethernet card out of the desktop and use it instead of the whole dead system?
For some reason I cannot ping or FTP on a specific computer on my home network. All other computers work fine and the specific computer works fine on other networks. But the combination of this computer and my home network it doesn't like.
I have disabled both windows firewall and my virus software but nothing seems to work. It seems to be a timeout issue as FTP and ping sometimes does work but FTP is increadibly slow when it works and the ping time is very high 670ms and above. I am running windows 7 and my router is a netgear n150
Had talk talk router upgrade yesterday and everything worked fine. Today wifi works on MacBook but not on PC Windows xp3. It appears in the list but won't connect on pc. Can connect to an unsecure weak connection on the list but it's not mine. Been in to router to chnage channel from auto to 11 as an eg
my internet only works in safe mode with networking but outside of safe mode i dosent work and i cant use the internet as i have seen in other cases they asked for a hijackthis scan so i done one and ask if you wish
Worked fine and then all of a sudden the Internet didn't work anymore. So I ran the computer in safe mode and it works fine, but still no luck in regular mode. Ran worm removal and spybot but nothing has worked. Also the windows bar is missing now for some reason. Windows Xp Service Pack 3.
I moved to a new house last week, and i have comcast internet which works on cable lines.i have them for years. anyways, i got my own motorola sb5101 modem, which i use for a while now.the problem is that in the new house the modem only works when it is connected to a computer with windows xp, it DOES NOT work on windows vista or 7,also, when i connect my router into it, it does not work either.when i connect it to windows 7 64-bit, it says "unidentified network" and "no internet access" but it works perfectly fine on windows xp 32 bit. (i have 2 xp's and 3 windows 7's)
I can only connect to the development server when I am logged into the VPN (Cisco VPN)I do most of my work on my desktop, which is running XP sp3. While logged into the vpn there, I can reach the SVN and FTP servers fine, but I cannot connect to the development website to view anything.I also have a laptop that is running windows 7. When I connect to VPN on that, I can connect to the website just fine. It is all from within my house so using the same router / cable modem / internet service. Both have installed the latest Cisco VPN softare, and use the same profile to connect.The differences are, windows 7 vs Windows XP. Windows 7 is running Microsoft Security Essentials and XP is running Comodo.
However, even when I turn off Comodo on XP I still can't connect to the website. (Just FYI, I also have XP as dual boot on the laptop and tried connecting from it but no go). I am getting absolutely no assistance from the company I am working on, so really can't ask them anything, I guess it is something I have to figure out myself.But it is frustrating me. I prefer to work on my desktop and it is set up in with all my development tools etc in a nice environment, where the laptop is noisy and slow and not a preferred work place.
Using Windows 7 Pro. I get a yellow triangle with ! on the LAN icon. The message is : 'no internet access' but the internet works.On Network and sharing center, using work network, everything is ok.It doesn't happen all the time.
I'm trying to connect my desktop to my laptop over the WLAN. Both computers are connected to the router, as well as I've got no problems sharing files to my PS3 via media servers. But connecting the two computers is impossible. I've tried everything I can think of. I've tried connecting the two both using Homegroup services, and in the old fashion way, without the Homegroup service, using only IPv4.It seems like firewall settings and sharing in general works ok, but making it work over WLAN is very troublesome.
I moved to a new place, with a new internet provider (a dorm, so it's all public). In my old place, my PC worked fine (Windows XP), but now it fails to connect to any of the Browsers. My laptop (Windows 7) is fine though with the same cable. No problems at all.
I'm visiting my mom for the holidays and so of course I got roped into her tech problems. She has an emachine with windows 7 that won't browse the internet even though it appears to be connected. The internet works fine in safe mode. She didn't have any antivirus software (in fact, she doesn't have that many programs at all) so I downloaded malware bytes and the scan came back clean.She has Hughesnet (the satellite people) as her ISP and she says that the problem started after they upgraded her modem.I'm a bit stumped as to what the problem could be, since all the google searches I did on the topic seemed to be some kind of problem with antivirus software (having two conflicting, or some kind of wonky settings) or a virus, neither of which seems to be the case.
I have a Windows 7 HP with intel pentium my Internet only works in safemode with networking. Orignially it worked when I used internet explore 64-bit but eventually that stopped working as well. I have 3 accounts on this computer and I need safemode with networking for all of them. I do have both mcfee and norton anti virus i was told that may be the problem however, I do not know how to install either of them.
We have 3200 logical devices configured on CiscoWorks and CiscoWorks is running very very slow. CiscoWorks installed on server with Windows Server 2003 32-bit and this version of windows it can only support RAM up to 4GB, which is already installed. In order to increase the RAM we have to upgrade the windows version as well. Which versions of Window can perform best with CiscoWorks. E.g. Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), Standard Edition 64-bit: or Windows server 2008 etc. We are currently using the LMS 3.2, RME 4.3.0, CM 5.2.1
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.
I just recently purchased a dell latitude E6400 laptop and I did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on it, not an upgrade. I also installed service pack 1 right after the OS install. My problem is I cannot find a single driver that allows my WiFi card/connection to show up in Windows. I have been browsing the internet like a fiend and cannot find a single driver or solution anywhere for this. Every install or driver I try either shows an error saying "incompatable" or just does not fix the issue. All I want is my WiFi card to work, and dell did not have any drivers that worked off of its support site even when I put in my service tag number. compatable driver for the WiFi card for windows 7 64bit? Or steer me in the right direction to get the WiFi working on my laptop?
this computer was working on this router no problem. computer crashed and noiw computer is fine i connected it to my cable from ny desk top comutyer and works fine. It just cannot hook up to the wireless connection?
trying to connect an old PC to my home wireless network.I brought home a PC I have used for years at my office. I have it configured with a Realtek wireless card and was able to connect it to my office wireless network without a problem.But, when I try to set it up at home, it won't take. I have a dlink router that is working fine with several Mac computers in my home, so I know the router and network are up and running fine.The PC uses Windows XP. The icon in the lower right corner says dlink is connected and there is strong signal strength. However, when I check the dlink status, it shows that 2,573 "packets" are sent, while "0" are received.I've tried to connect to the internet using Mozilla, Safari, and Explorer. Each says the server cannot be found and that the internet is not connected.
