so my computer acts slow when its sending files. when im on aim &im sending a song, evrything is slower. my internet becomes really slow to the point where i cant use it. &everything just becomes slow. &my sending speed is really slow compared to others. it would take me 10 minutes to send one song compared to my friend which would only take 3 minutes. &the song file was about the same mb.
this is something that's been bugging me for quite a while now.At home I use both a laptop and a PC connected to the network through a wireless router.I get my internet from Comcast and so far am very happy with the speed etc. The router is now 4 years old (Linksys).The thing is that I cannot download certain things at home (no firewalls) but when I take the PC to work,I can download them without a problem.The programs I'm referring to is usually Microsoft related programs (Outlook connector, Silverlight etc...). When I try downloading, it opens a small ie window with an error message, and at the next step it says link is broken.
Email: when I try to send an email with an attachment (pictures/other files) it starts sending and stops suddenly at around 50-100% I repeat trying to send it and it works after a while. The larger the file size the harder it is to complete and send. 0.5mb is easy to send but over 1-2mb is very difficult.When it stops I get this error message after a min or so.Sending of message failed.The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server smtp.googlemail.com timed out. Try again or contact your network administrator.Online: The exact same thing happens on Facebook and other websites uploading gets stuck and times out but does work sometimes.
Alright, so we have about six computers on average all on at the same time, working just fine, last night one of the laptops just, stopped working, saying there is no internet access, With every attempt it doesn't send any information. When I disconnect it from the wireless, then reconnect it, it immediately receives packets but won't send any.
The university I attend doesn't allow modems and routers, but me and my roommates desperately need wifi for our devices, otherwise they are being wasted sitting around. today I set up an ad hoc connection on my roommates laptop, but he brings his laptop places and when he's out, we have no wifi. I have my desktop computer, and I can leave it on all the time and I never leave with it, so I'd love to set up wifi on it, since it will be so much more convenient.
I brought my router from home, and ive gotten it to send out my computer's internet connection, but it brings me to the school's registration page, which I can not use, since routers are not allowed. Is there a way to use my desktop's ethernet connection and send out that internet connection through my router (it also needs to bypass the school network, somehow fooling it that my router is my computer (im guessing))? I have 2 ethernet jacks on my computer by the way.
my desktop is picking up wirelessinternet, i have 2 avalible ethernet ports on it, is their a way i can plug an ethernet from my computer to my xbox to play online, i dont want to have a cable come from the router.
Basic info: SBS 2008 (64bit), XP-sp3 (32bit) workstations, gigabit switch, SEP. App is Sage Masterbuilder.Network config: Server is 1gb to switch over CAT6. All the workstations are 100mb over CAT5. SEP is set to exclude all pertinent files on both the server and workstations.Problem: The program is called MasterBuilder and does job costing and much more. In the job costing feature there is an option to "Compute" job costing. In version 16.x, when the "Compute" was performed the task was done very quickly. After an upgrade to version 17.x it is very SLOW. According to tech support, our network is at fault since it is a database function over the network.Troubleshooting done: Tech support blamed our network speed (100mb) and switch. We had a Netgear 100mb switch so we replaced it with a GB switch however the cabling will not support GB. Being a managed switch I set all the ports to 100mb except the server port. Even tried the server plugged into a 100mb port and no change. I am confident there are no speed issues on our network. All other programs perform flawlessly. ACAD, Exchange, data transfers and many other high data use programs work perfectly. I updated the network card drivers in the server as well. There are no performance or resource issues on the workstations. I monitored the network traffic at the workstations, server and switch with no issues and about 2.5% utilization during the slow "Compute" process. The switch shows no errors at all, no collisions, no dropped packets, nothing. I also disabled the SEP.
During testing and while the slow "Compute" was going on, I copied a large folder (400mb) from the server to the workstations see the impact on network utilization. As soon as I start the copy process the "Compute" process speeds up to normal and zips by as it should. As soon as I cancel the copy process the "Compute" drops right back to very slow.
I have network group set up for 5 computers and everything is okay except 1 computer, lets call it X, cant access files from computer, Y, but there arent problems with Y getting into X. On computer X a login screen pops up for computer Y password but it doesnt have a password and it still wont let me in. would it be better to set a password or is there a way to bypass that screen?
My parents bought a new computer today. My mom called me up today and asked me if I could transfer some stuff from the old computer to the new computer. I do not have a flash drive or an external hard drive, or jump drive.etc. So I was hoping I could just connect the two computers with an ethernet cable, and create a network.
Is this possible, or do you need additional equipment. I do not have a router, so if I create a network it has to be done with wires. So is it possible to create a network with nothing but an ethernet cable? Or is there another way I can get my moms i tunes transferred over?
I have a netbook or laptop or whatever those small computers are called which I use as a server (it just sits there with the lid closed all the time answering website requests).It generates logs but I absolutely hate laptops and can't stand them, not only is using a touchpad an experience from pure hell, but it's absolutely impossible to find buttons like home, end, page up, page down, so I can't manage to use it 5 seconds without wanting to smash it to powder.I know a lot about computers and programming but NOTHING about networking.Both the laptop or whatever it's called and my personal desktop PC are connected to the same router. Is there any way I can access the log folder on the server from my personal computer so I have a proper mouse and keyboard to work with?
I'm accessing a NAS server remotely through VPN (Netgear FVG318). I can connect to the NAS server but it is very slow when opening and saving documents. When accessing the network drive I am connected to the Internet through wireless connection. When I connect to the Internet through Ethernet cable opening and saving documents is much quicker. Is there anyway I can make the remote access quicker when accessing it through a wireless connection?
#1 windows 7 computer has a wired connection and #2 windows 7 computer has a wireless connection. When at #2 and trying to save a file to #1, the save time may be about a minute. When doing the same thing from a computer #3 with windows xp, the save time is a few seconds. Tried safe mode with networking. Same thing. Tried disabling remote differential compression. No change. The three computers are in the same workgroup.
I can copy or past small files but on big files like DVD ISO which are about 5GB there is a sudden shutdown like a power out.This shutdown happens exactly when I click paste. It is not the temperature or virus or a bad xp install.I clean installed xp and installed the newest lan drivers from ECS.
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 am trying to transfer files from my laptop to my desktop, but when I open the 'network' folder from the start menu to access the desktop from the laptop, the desktop computer is not shown. I ensured that the workgroup names are the same, all sharing is turned on on both computers in Network and Sharing Center, since it is a private network, I checked the router settings and nothing seems to be wrong. The desktop is running Windows Vista Business x86 and the laptop is running Windows 7 Home Premium x64, so there is no way to make a Homegroup connection. However, I can see the laptop computer from the desktop's network folder. I click on it to gain access, but I get an error message: "Network Error, Windows cannot access \****-PC, check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. Error code: 0x80070035 The network path was not found." have checked all wiring, router settings, and nic card settings, have done a successful ping, even Network and Sharing Center, I have also checked sharing permissions and permission levels, I see nothing that could possibly affect the access of the computers.
The only thing I can think of is that when I click on the 'Network ID' button under the Computer Name tab in System Properties on the desktop, it asks join a domain or workgroup, it will not let me save the selection "This is a home computer; it's not part of a business network," that may or may not be the issue, because it will only remain on "This computer is part of a business network" probably because I am running Windows Vista Business.
I'm considering upgrading my home server to 2012 Essentials from WHS 2011. WHS 2011 has always been strangely finicky and I have a new Win8 laptop, so i would like to take advantage of the new options in Essentials.that said, I was looking to access my data on the WHS 2011 system to back IT up, and all I see are a bunch of 4,194,304kb .dat files. I've been lucky in that I have never had to recover data from the server, so this has been an interesting issue. how does one access the backed up files on a WHS2011 computer, short of doing some kind of restore?
On my moms laptop, (month old Lenovo B570/i3-3230/4GB/W7), when transferring files to my Crucial Gizmo! 16GB USB Drive, it is pretty much impossible to surf the web. Loading websites take 30-60 seconds, it's ridiculous. Is this normal? Her router is Linksys WRT54G. Router is not connected via USB, in fact the Laptop is connected through ethernet cable (not currently using wireless).
every-time i try to play a file directly from my computer through the network to my Samsung tv downstairs regardless of the file format it says file format no supported though when i plug the same file in with the usb directly through the back of the TV it plays the without a hitch
I have 2 computers (one is using windows 7, other is using windows xp), one switch and router. I don't have physical access to router. I have plugged the cable from router to switch, and connected both PC's to switch and now I have internet on both PC's.My question is, can I "control" or share files on windows xp with Windows 7 (main computer) and in same time have access to internet? Or to use windows 7 to connect to internet?
I am trying to transfer files from Laptop A to Laptop B. I can transfer files from B to A, but I can't transfer them from A to B. When I try to, I get an error message saying "Windows cannot access Laptop A".It then gives me the option to diagnose the problem (I'm using Vista on both laptops, by the way). When I click that, it gives me the error of "Cannot communicate with Laptop A. We pinged the remote host but did not receive a response".Laptop A is connected to the network according to it, it can access the internet fine and can access other laptops on the network fine. I have disabled the firewall, shared the folders appropriately, made sure they were both on the same workgroup (they are both on the default Vista WORKGROUP), and still nothing.
How to access files shared on a windows pc from a linux xubuntu pc? i tried to use the "Gigolo" app but it didn't do anything pyneighborhood saw the computers on the network but didn't able to go into the shared folders...
I have one machine at office and one at home, both Windows XP SP3, ADSL connection with static IP.On the office machine a have an archive of about 250 GB of files.When i am at home sometimes i need to connect to my office machine, search through those files, maybe preview some, and then download some needed files to my home machine, using a download queue feature is possible.
Radmin UltraVNC TeamViewer p300 DC++ and many variations of it.
Note: am not allowed, and don't want to install any kind or sort of server application on office machine.
Here a have a quest that can't find the perfect solution for a half year now.I have one machine at office and one at home, both Windows XP SP3, ADSL connection with static IP.On the office machine a have an archive of about 250 GB of files.When i am at home sometimes i need to connect to my office machine, search through those files, maybe preview some, and then download some needed files to my home machine, using a download queue feature is possible.The task doesn't seem so complicated, yet, i did not find a perfect simple solution so far.
My D-Link655 is 6 months old. Liked it so much that I bought one for my sister in-law, and my mother/father in-law. Whenever my son's Mac PowerBook Pro (latest Mac OS) is on the network (WiFi) the router intermittently stops working. It loses connection for both WiFi and Wired (at the same time). The intermittent issues seem to disappear when he disconnects the MacBook Pro.
-Current Firmware Version :1.32NA -Current Firmware Date :2009/07/09
Perhaps it is coincidence, but it seems when the Mac is connected, the router fails every so many minutes (both WiFi and Wired). When the Mac is disconnected, the intermittent issues are gone.
Got a new EA6500 a few days ago and from the start it acts as if times out and goes to sleep. Any time I enter a URL i get a long pause then the website unavailable message... refresh a few times then suddenly it works fine. this is for both connected and wireless. Even when I have the Linksys Smart WiFi open, I'll get a pop-up message that no router connected, then it goes away and everything is fine. Sometimes the old Windows Network message pops up asking me to connect. Works fine once it's "ON", but always have to refresh page a few times to get it to wake up.
I have 4 Catalyst 2960 connected via Etherchannel to each other. If I plug in my notebook in one port, I see the traffic from the neighbor port. So my switch acts like a hub.. I had a look at my MAC table and saw it isn't full.
Two computers (XP and Win7) connected on office LAN, cisco 2960, not same switches, but all in the same rack, and link togeter, same IP subnet, tried to copy some kind of 26G files from one to another, using Windows share folders, and it showed need 23 hours to finish the copying.It's not the first time, actually we always experienced very slow speed when copying files on Windows share folders. Did not see any particualler message on the switch. ports are all full/100m.
