I am new to forum and stuck in connecting one computer to laptop. Here is the scenario: One computer running on windows 7 is connected to wireless router Netgear WGT624 v3 via Ethernet cable. The second is laptop running on Apple. The first one computer does not have any wireless dongle. The laptop is connected with Wifi Hotspot of mobile phone. Now I want to make network between computer and laptop via wireless router to share files and the Wifi Hotspot which is already used by laptop.
I have a local network that I want to connect to a WiFi site. The site is a free service offered to our community by a local ISP. The network uses a wireless router but cable links the two relatively old PCs. They are used for a single inventory-accounting program. One serves as the softwre host. The organization wants episodic Internet access so they can use a software update auto installation service. There are alternative ways to accomplish these updates, but this pathway is the only one acceptable to the organization. Why they reject a simple thumb drive using an out of system download is beyond me, but it seems to be a locked in idea. Oh, the current wireless router cannot accept DD-WRT, but one is available if it can be used if useable.
we currently have one desktop PC, two laptops, two HDTVs, and three cell phones. All of them are Wi-Fi compatible. Currently, I have a NetGear WGR614 v8 router courtesy of Comcast.it is possible that I can have all devices sharing the same Wi-Fi network? The desktop PC is connected to the router with CAT-5. The TV in the living room can be connected to the router as well with CAT-5 as the router is less than a foot from the network jack on the back of the TV.The TV in the bedroom has a Wi-Fi ready via USB.My daughter who is off to college owns one of the cell phones a laptop and an XBOX360 which I am not concerned about connecting until she returns home around Christmas.
The problem is: My Vista laptop cannot find the Wi-Fi hotspot I just create, although it appears on my XP desktop.If I used the included software to make my adapter as a Router, my Vista laptop can find the network and can connect to it. The problem is the internet connection always shows 'Identifying IP address' and later on it shows 'Unidentified IP address'.I also tried to hook up my laptop with the wire connection and using Vista to do the vice versa. (I did this before once when my friends and I went to Vegas and we were able to turn my laptop into a wi-fi hotspot through the hotel's wire internet). I'm able to setup a wi-fi network but:
+ Using the Wireless Connections of Windows XP, my desktop cannot find the hotspot.
+ Using the included software with the adapter, I can connect to the wifi network, but it's unable to go to Internet.
I need to know how to change the wifi channel of the connection. connectify can't do it. I guess you have to set it somewhere in the network card settings, but I'm quite a noob when it's about wireless network. googling my problem didn't get me any good result since all the threads about channel setup are about modem/router wifi channel setting, can't find anything about hotspots.
so many wifi hotspot arround my place, but I can't get all, because need some password for it acces, how to know those wifi hotspot password without asking the provider, and or what kind of powerfull software of the password finder I can use?
I just purchased a T-Mobile hotspot (ZTE) yesterday. It can connect to the T-Mobile network and appears to be working fine. My Wii can connect wirelessly to the the hotspot, but my laptop can only connect to the internet through the USB cord (which it's really not supposed to, because that's supposed to be for charging the device). When I try to connect via wifi to my hotspot, my computer can detect the network. However, after I immediately enter my password, it says that it cannot connect. When I click "Diagnose the problem" it says there was a timeout.I have Windows Vista and one of the tech support people mentioned that Windows Vista sometimes has problems connecting with handshake devices (but he didn't know how to fix it). Another person said I should have about 20 seconds to type in my password, so it shouldn't be timing out so quickly. Is it something with my computer? I have a Compaq Presario CQ60. I had this same problem when I tried to connect to a friend's hotspot a couple weeks ago (I don't remember if it was also T-Mobile or another provider, though).
Anyway, I have a Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4056 with Win7 Home Premium 64-bit. I've had it almost a year now and have never had trouble connecting to public wifi.Recently, I moved into a new apartment with free wifi and I seem to catch the signal from my apt even though it is poor. Every time I try to connect with my Toshiba it says, "Windows is unable to connect to 'linksys'." However, my husband's HP laptop and my old eMachines laptop (7yr old) (which I am using to research the problem) can connect with absolutely no issues. When I go to the clubhouse, my Toshiba can connect, however it cannot identify the network and does not receive an actual internet connection.
So far, I have uninstalled/reinstalled and updated my network adapter (Realtek RTL8188CE), I've used Command Prompt ipconfig /reset and ipconfig /release along with several other commands suggested to other wifi connection problemsI've checked my DHCP and DNS to ensure they're enabled.As for firewalls, I have turned off windows firewall and have disabled Kaspersky protection, however I have yet to uninstall and reinstall, this being because I can connect to a password prompted internet connection at work.I am unsure how to check my IP address or any of that
Have a problem with Wi-Fi, and going to work on this computer over the weekend. So before I get my hands on it, hoping to get some suggestions on how to get it done. The time for a fix will be limited. Wi-Fi always disconnects after about 1 hour of connection to a Wi-Fi hotspot under Windows 7 via Bootcamp.These Wi-Fi drops happen in every hotspot (fast food, hotel, other free Wi-Fi) so far.Works without drops when connected to same Wi-Fi hotspots in Mac OSX 10.x.Even works in Windows 7 when using own, separate Verizon 4G mobile hotspot, model MIFI 4510L. But again not when connected to the hotel hotspots/routers.Loses Wi-Fi connection after about an hour when on regular Wi-Fi (via router/hotspot). Happens on different Wi-Fi networks in different places -- same problem.Checked online and saw lots of people having Wi-Fi disconnection problems in Windows 7 on Mac Books (Pro and Air). Also saw people having lots of disconnection problems with just Windows 7 (without a Mac).
What makes Verizon 4G hotspot so different from other hotspots? Is it protocols? Different encryption? Something else?Obviously I can't change the settings on the routers (as they are the establishment's and are different in every place). I can only change something locally on the laptop itself.I have very limited amount of time to apply any fixes I can think of. About 1 hour; 1 and a half max. I know that it's not best for trying to troubleshoot it, but that's all I have this week to work on it. In a few weeks I might have more time to spend with it. Laptop may have Hide My Ass Pro VPN proxy installed. Can't verify at the moment. OSX has it for sure. Windows side -- not positive. But switching it off will be the first thing I'll try. What steps to try to undertake and in which order. Any way to monitor the connection live and see what caused the disconnect? Say a live or recorded log of network card and router communication? Reinstall drivers? Any better drivers available for it? The Wireless card is called Airport officially. But if remember correctly it is: Broadcom BCM43xx.
I just bought a laptop installed with Windows 8. I want to connect my iPhone to the Internet through the laptop. I have tried using Connectify to set up a WiFi hotspot. It works only with WEP and my iPhone can connect to the Internet but my iPhone disconnects from the hotspot after a while and I need to restart my Connectify hotspot, which is really annoying.I googled online and find that I can use the netsh command to set up the hotspot. I run command prompt in administrator mode and type in the following:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=adhocnetwork key=password
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
And then I share the wired network through control panel > network connections > ethernet > properties.I connect my iPhone to the hosted network and typed in the password. I see a tick next to the SSID, meaning it can connect to the hosted network.I also check the status of the hosted network. Both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity show Internet.But when I open Safari on my iPhone, it says no Internet.
I have desktop with windows 7. I am connected to internet through D-link ADSL 2+ router using RJ 45 cable. I want to create wifi hot spot on this desktop. I tried installing connectify software. But when I try to configure hot spot with connectify it says No wi-fi device present. Now what hardware do I exactly need to turn my comp into wifi hotspot?
1st. I have a desktop and nearby there is wireless internet WiFi hotspot. How can I connect it to the wireless internet WiFi? I am thinking of buying this: http:[url]....Apart from that adapter do I need something else?
2nd. Where the desktop is, I have no reception. I mean because my cellphone has no reception when it is in the same place where the desktop is. But when I put my cellphone in the window around 12 feet away, there is reception. So I am wondering if I can make a 12 feet long USB cable from the desktop to the window and with the Wifi/WLAN Wireless Network USB Adapter in the window.
I've got a WiFi router which I'd now like to connect through my Android phone's 3g hotspot. The router is a Trendnet TEW-691GR. The phone: an old Motorola Milestone.
The reason I'm attempting this is the ADSL (or other wireless) in the area is simply tooooooo slooooowww to even consider. I'm lucky to get 40kb/s through the ADSL, but linking through the phone's hotspot allows in excess of 2MB/s - price wise it's not much of a difference. So I thought: "Why not simply use my phone's connection (seeing as I'm paying for it already - uncapped as well), and drop the ADSL contract?"
Only: the router was fine for the ADSL modem. But I'm failing to see how to connect it to the hotspot. I can connect the phone to the router quite easily. But if the hotspot is turned on the connection needs to go the other way round - doesn't it?
Anyhow most of the PC's & Laptops have a wireless connection, so I can directly connect to the hotspot from each of these. This now causes further issues: One of the PCs (I use it as a pseudo server) only has a LAN connection to the router. Also if a laptop is connected to the hotspot it cannot be connected to the router - thus it's incapable of seeing the shares on the "server".
I was thinking of attempting the router's WDS setup, but it requires the MAC address of the other wireless device(s). And for the love of Pete I cannot find the phone's MAC while its hotspot is turned on (simply says MAC address unavailable on the phone). I can find it when the hotspot is off, and have tried using that MAC, then turn the hotspot on and reboot the router - but still it doesn't connect to the hotspot.
We (our company) have a new glass fiber internet from a provider with 5 ip-addresses in an /29 range. I try the accomplice the following. On port 1 comes the output from the provider. On port 2 till 7 I want to separate the ip addresses so can distribute these addresses to our lan, to a wifi hotspot for external company visitors etc. So on port 2 a ip to the lan, on port 3 a ip to wifi router
I have broadband connection on a wired DSL Modem. Now I want to create a wireless networking environment at my home so to work with my laptop and WLAN enabled phone. I do not like to buy a new Wireless router.
Is is possible to deploy my existing modem/router with some extra equipments to build a wifi hotspot?
I have a desktop PC with no wifi card that I want to use with a Clear Wifi hotspot. I have a WGA54AG Linksys Gaming Adapter and I want to use this with the desktop to access the wifi. I do not know how to reconfigure the gaming adapter for the CLear hotspot's security protocols.
I have a router attached to my Dell desktop running Windows 7 and am trying to install the AE2500. Instead of using the router, I want the AE-2500 to access my HotSpot wifi on my cell phone. I go through the AE2500 installation and Device Manager shows it is installed properly. However, I do not see the adapter in my list of available wireless connections and I'm unabley to disconnect my router connection. I keep clicking disconnect but it never does.
I wanted to setup a home network for primarily sharing my music, pictures and videos.I have a PS3 which can stream the video/music and display the pictures from a media server to my TV.I was wondering between NAS and a desktop computer? and wanted to know which was the better or cheaper solution? (2 much 2 ask for both)
--Will NAS work with PS3?
--Incase of a computer, i know i will be able to use logmein or gotomypc to Download files directly to that machine even when im not home and when i do get home its ready to go. Can the same be achieved with a NAS?What else should i consider? i.e. pros and cons of both.
Trying to create a network for file sharing, as have upgraded the 'server' (part of a Workgroup, not a Domain) from WinXP to Win7 and experienced problems ever since. Ironically the problems haven't mainly been with sharing files between Win7 and WinXP systems, but between 2 Win7 systems. I bought a new Win7 laptop and tried to connect it to the server, but it hasn't had Read/Write privileges over the files in the Win7 server. Entering a username and password to gain access to the servers folders has not been a problem, and as far as I know, opening files such as documents has not been a problem either. However, when trying to save an edited document, access is denied, and if I try to open an executable file (this is necessary for a node installation), it prompts me for a network password. Every combination possible of username and password from the 2 systems (including '' or 'SYSTEMNAME' before the username) has not worked. I tried syncing the times which was apparently a previous problem, but to no avail. I am unable to access Local Security Policy, as the server is running off Home Premium. I have tried creating a new workgroup, removing and changing passwords, enabling guest access to the network through the Windows Resource Kit Command Shell, creating identical users on both computers, but nothing appears to have worked.
I have been playing around with some hotspot/captive portal software on my home network. At the moment I have Grase Hotspot setup on an old computer in the garage with a Engenius outdoor wireless AP connected to it.I would like to have Grase Hotspot loaded onto my Proxmox server inside the house and only use the wireless AP located in the garage to allow connections.My network is as follows.
Internet--->PFSense Router---->Linksys SRW2024 Switch--->Proxmox-->Out to garage into another switch---> Engenius AP
I tried it on a VM, but Grase Hotspot tries to hand out IP's to the entire network, instead of just taking connections from the AP.
I am working with a friend who has a home office that is not in a location where DSL or Cable is available. His only option for internet is using a hotspot - in this case, the Elevate Hot Spot from AT&T.
He needs to network two computers so that he can enable QuickBooks Pro in multi user mode - i.e., data file shared on Computer A, accessed by Computer B.
I thought at first that perhaps I could just setup a wireless connection for the office network - however, whenever that connection is on, then obviously neither computer can access the hotspot.
Trying to keep this at *minimal* cost.
My best idea is to old school network - i.e., connect the two computers via crossover ethernet. Am I correct that this will work? Seems to me that then both computers *should* still be able to access the hotspot via their wifi, yet also be networked for file sharing.
My questions are:
1.) Is this a correct assessment?
2.) Are there any road blocks I should be thinking about?
3.) Any reason not to do a direct connection (i.e., any reason I should entertain connecting to a switch instead?)
Im on windows 7, I was able to view people on the network, able to access their public folders, but all of a sudden when I click on network, it just says at the top "Network Discovery and file sharing are turned off. Network computers and devices are not visible, Click to change..." I click on it and it doesn't do anything at all, same message comes on. SO i thought Ill change the settings, I see that Network Discovery is off so I turn them both on, save changes and then try again, same message appears, I go back to settings and see that they are switched off again, it doesn't stay on.
I'm trying to Bridge my wifi connection with a LAN to connect my XBOX 360 to Live. I have made the bridged connection with an LAN and my Wifi, and can connect to the bridge from my laptop, however from all of the guides I've tried following, they all say that I should find a Sharing tab under my wifi connection's properties, however I only have a Networking tab.
my specs are:
Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 188.8.131.52 OS Version: Microsoft� Windows Vista� Home Premium, Service Pack 2, 64 bit Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8600 @ 2.40GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 23
I am a medical student and I use my college wifi to download torrent files via utorrent. Earlier they have blocked torrent sites, So... I use to download the torrent address via my 3G Dongle and then open it in the utorrent to download the whole file ( 4 GB or 8 GB size). The WiFi provides about 1-2 Mbps speed and the files ude to download very easily . But, now along with the blocked site , ... the utorrent is not catching speed.
Is it possible to share files and folder over wifi internet just as with wired internet ? I have 2 Laptops with built in wifi adapter. Can i make them share files and folders through wifi. (No Router or other hardware)
I have a laptop (Win XP SP3) which connects to the Internet via wireless connection. Configuration is as follows:
Laptop connects to AP1 (wireless) AP1 connects to AP2 (ethernet cable) AP2 connects to AP3 (wireless)(AP3 is somewhere in the neighbourhood, i dont know where) Some of the APs or all of them may work as bridges, i dont know since i do not have access to their interfaces. I have a desktop, which is connected to my laptop with a crossover ethernet cable.
I know this is possible, but I haven't found the steps to accomplish this. I have a Win 7 x64 with an Alfa AWUS036H connected to the internet (strong signal). I have a Win 7 x64 notebook whose wifi adapter shows a very low signal strength. I know there is a way to use the Alfa AWUS036H both for the primary wifi/internet connection and for Virtual WiFi to the notebook.The Virtual WiFi is supposed to be part of Win7? But I can't find in the network control panel how to set it up
