Network Is Not Showing Up On Only Two Windows 7 Computers?
Dec 6, 2012
My Macbook Pro connects and mom's Windows 7 laptop connects, and (though having done it manually) and my iPhone connects as well. But my Windows 7 desktop and my dad's Windows 7 laptop don't detect the network.
At my work when I click on Network it immediately shows a full list of all the computers on the network. There's probably about 100. At home when I click network it takes like 30 seconds to do some scan and show like 3 computers. What's the deal?
I noticed a TON of random devices showing up in my Network within Windows 7. When I say a ton, I mean 739! I am not computer illiterate, but definitely not a pro. My router is WEP password protected, so I'm not sure on earth is going on here. I thought maybe I had a torrent program open that could be affecting this somehow, but I don't..
When I click on Network, the only computer that shows up is mine. If I am hardwired then everything shows up (Servers, other workstations). Is this a problem with the radius server or something on the controller?
Have an older laptop running XP Home, Desktop running XP Pro with printer on it. Wireless network setup and doing fine for bidirectional file share and print share from old lappie to desktop. All worked great.Bought a brand new high end laptop with Win 7 (not impressed). Finally got the Win 7 new one to recognize both older computers on the Win 7 computer and was able to access file share and print on the desktop. Thought I was doneNope, now while I can see the old lappie and it can see it in the Win7 computer both directions give me cannot access the drive or specific files even though it "sees" themAll files and disks are set to full share. No password is required or any homegroup is setup on the win 7 system. I've been in the bus. a long time so you know I'm at the end of the rope. All searches through knowledge base and the web have yielded no results to this.I did find an absolute to this in insuring that both systems have the same workgroup. Changed the old lappie to the right name. Made no difference in access (after several reboots). Obviously can't run Easy Transfer with this situation.
Now problem #2. I changed the old lappies workgroup to the same as the Win7 computer in the hopes of fixing this. Made no difference but now I have two iterations my XP laptop in the Win 7 system.When selected, the info for one has the old workgroup and selecting the other shows the new workgroup (matching the Win7 workgroup).Anyway, throwing up my hands in frustration and disgust. Find no way to even dump the old workgroup map listing. Jeez. Sure glad they (M/S) made this better?
My home network was made up of a desktop running windows XP home (wired) and a desktop also running XP (wireless). I have recently added a desktop running Windows 7 (wireless) to the system. When I turn on the Windows 7 machine, it sees the other two machines and I use the files from them easily. But after the new machine has been on awhile, it does not see the other computers. (I can, however, still access the shared files on it (the Windows 7 machine) from the other desktop (haven't checked the laptop). If I power down the Windows 7 and then turn it back on, the other machines show up immediately. I've got them all named to the same workgroup and in the network settings in the control panel, I think that it is set to discover the network.
How do I fix my network so that my Windows 7 and XP computers automatically detect each other on the network. Right now, they cannot browse each other by computer name, instead I have to type their IP addresses (for example: \192.168.2.5) in the windows explorer address bar, and then I can browse to their shared folders. And under "Network" (in Windows Explorer) each computer only displays itself, and not the other (unless I have already typed in the other's IP address, in which case it displays the other computer as the IP address).
I have spent a couple of hours to find an easy way to connect my old laptop with Windows XP with my new notebook running Windows 7. I have obtained a little bit of background information but am lost in the WWW.
I now know that I would need a special USB cable or a cross-over ethernet cable for a wired connection. As I don't have either at the moment I looked into creating a ad-hoc WiFi network between both computers. I found instructions how to set one up under Win XP and another one for Win 7 but I have found no information whether and how I can actually connect both. I reckon that I only need to set one up on one computer and then would have to somehow make the other computer detect and join that network.
My router is cisco 881-w my server pc ip address is 10.10.10.3, but my wireless clients from 10.10.12.1 till 10.10.12.20, how can i see each other computers in windows network... I can ping computers, but i can't browse... I preffer to use cisco configuration proffesional v2.1, but also i'm learning CLI...
Short: I want to access my computers with \SK1 till \SK20
I can ping from wireless to wireless with names eg "ping SK20"
but i can't ping wireless to LAN eg "ping SERVER" but when i ping my server ip adress eg "ping 10.10.10.3" result is successfully
In my opinion i need some kind of bridge from LAN to WLAN

I've come across an older IBM ThinkPad 2687 via work that was just collecting dust, and it was able to connect to a wireless network.Due to other issues with the machine, I had to do a complete refresh on it, so it only had the XP OS.
I had to update the drivers to make sure other things like connecting to a flash drive, and connecting to a local area was possible, which is how I'm able to connect now.However, I've been unable to access the wireless connection within Network connections. I've downloaded the different drivers from the Lenovo IBM ThinkPad website, but still no luck.
So I just installed Windows Server 2003 64 bit on an older HP Proliant DL360 G5 and am trying to connect it to my network but neither of the 2 NIC's are showing up under Network Connections... the only option I am given is the ''Add Network Places Wizard''.
I have an ethernet cable plugged into NIC 1 and the LED's work so I know it's not a bad NIC card- do I have to download drivers for the NIC? Do I download them to a USB/CD and then just boot from that?
I have 2 Windows 7 desktops that are both connected to seperate vonage boxes and those vonage boxes are connected to my D-Link DIR-655 router. That D-Link router is getting its connection from a Comcast router. I am looking to get one of the desktops to share a printer from the other one which has it hard wired via USB cable. When I first set this up I did not have the vonage boxes and the desktops were connected right into the router and everything worked fine. Now that the vonage boxes are in place it is a mess. I can get internet fine on both machines, but no file/printer sharing. I have followed all the steps to setup the correct workgroup and file and printer sharing options on both windows 7 machines but they cannot see each other at all. My feeling is that now that the vonage boxes are there that instead of the desktops looking at the D-Link router for its sharing option they are looking at the vonage boxes and that is why they cant be seen. Does this make sense? Is there a firewall on the vonage boxes stopping these two desktops from seeing each other? Do I have to change something on the D-Link router options for it to give access to the vonage boxes for these 2 machines to see each other for printer/file sharing?
I am trying to configure access control rules, but the list of computers (ip addresses and mac addresses) are empty, I have setup all of my devices with static ip's, they are all turned on and all have internet access. None of the systems including the one I am trying to configure the rules with are there, They don't show up in port forwarding either. Any one ever have this problem? I returned and DIR-825 Rev.b for this same problem because i thought it was defective.
I have tried rebooting the router, rebooting each pc and trying different ports on the router itself. There are wireless and wired computers that I am trying to setup but none of them show up. When I try to manually enter them into access control ie. 192.168.0.103 it will only allow me to put one computer in for each rule.
The old rev.A router this one replaced work perfectly fine with the same cables and computers setup the same way.
I have a media player on my home network, which consists of 3 desktop pcs (1 xp home, 1 win 7 home p, and 1 win 8 pro) and 2 nas boxes. Nothing is wireless, all cabled. All pcs can talk to each other and the nas boxes, all have internet access.Problem is when I try to access pc files with my media player. It can access the nas boxes and the xp pc fine, but when i attempt the win 7 or 8 pcs it asks for ausername/password. The win 8 pc has both, but the media player wont accept them, and the win 7 pc has never had a password. I tried putting a password on the win 7 pc, but the media player rejects the user and pw.
my computer is a dell dimension 1100, with a Linksys WMP54G wifi card, running vista home basic.In the wifi thing in the notification area, it shows two wireless networks, One is my normal SSID (Lower Net), and one is "Unidentified network". They are both on one wireless connection (Wireless Network Connection 3). When i try to go on the internet, it says i'm not connected. i tried disconnecting from the unidentified network, but that disconnects me from lower net too.
Windows XP on an older Dell Latitude. All wireless settings appear to be on, yet "no wireless networks are found in range" All other devices in the house see the same 3 networks (mine, mifi, and next door), so this is specific to this machine.
Also, I normally keep this laptop docked, 95% of the time, and earlier in the week disabled the wireless (right click on icon, disable) as I normally do when connected to the dock, since it seems to perform faster (no testing, just my opinion)
Other factors: The computer got undocked without normal undock procedure taking place.
Don't know if this is related, but the sound wasn't working either the last few days I have redocked, rebooted, restarted, checked every possible config I can think of, checked the router to be sure that my device was still listed, etc.
I have a desktop with windows Xp and I too have no wireless networks come up in the box on the right hand side, I know the wireless Linsky cisco wifi is working as I have connected it to another laptop with Vista, but have tried everything to get it wireless and nothing works the Desktop works fine when hard wired?
I have a wireless ADSL Router with 2 Windows 7 Computers Connected to it via Wireless.They can see the internet and the Network but not each other.I have connected a wireless HP Officejet 1050 Printer to the Wireless and it can see the wireless and connects.No computers can see the printer or each other on the wireless network and I can not setup the computers to print to the wireless printer.
Windows 7 ultimate has stopped seeing 3 XP machines & two HP servers but sees Win 7 pro machine & still connects to the internet. Backups to server are still working. All the latest updates on all machines. Virtual XP on Ultimate machine sees all other machines. The only machine that still sees the ultimate machine is the Win 7 pro. The win 7 pro machine sees all the others. Up until 5 or 6 days ago all machines saw each other

I am trying to share my printer with the other 2 computers on my home network. I have the printer connected to my XP machine. The other 2 computers are running XP and Windows 7. The Windows 7 machine is directly connected to the router and my computer and the other XP computer are connected wirelessly.I've shared my printer and given it a share name. But the other 2 computers cannot access my computer for some reason.I'm not sure why they can't access my computer to see the shared printer.
We have two offices separated by a WAN.Office A is our main office that has all of our servers, including domain controllers and active directory, on our own network.Office B is a temp. office that is piggybacking off of our sister company's network, but the computers there still connect back to Office A servers to login/access services. However, Office B connects to the sister company's local domain controllers for DNS/WINS.We're having an issue where NetBIOS names of the other office are not always showing up when browsing for computers within the WinXP Windows Explorer (My Network Places --> Entire Network --> MS Windows Network --> domain A). It seems entirely random whether or not we can see the other office's computers. We can still ping/remote to them, but cannot browse to them.
It would normally be a non-issue, but some of our software apps require us to "Browse" to the network server location, rather than being able to type in the address, during installation. Can't install if we can't browse the Office A servers. Obviously has something to do with WINS not always populating/updating, but I'm not sure what or how to fix this.
It was so much easier to transfer from xp to win7, but now that I upgraded both to win7 I can't just simply share it and transfer my files. I need to share 1 entire drive, what's the easiest way to do it.
I recently upgraded a relatives Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop from Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit! To Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit. Previously this was connected wireless to a netgear router. On upgrading the OS i have found that the previous network is no longer showing up in the list of avalible networks even though a number of other devices can still connect and see the broacast of the SSID. As other networks are showing up and the laptop can succesfully connect to others I dont see this as being a driver issue. I have checked the router configuration for broadcast of SSID and MAC filtering. My next step will be to connect the router and laptop via ethernet.
I have a new windows7 installed laptop. I couldnot connect to the networked computers which are in Windows XP. All printers and other pheripherals are connected to windows XP computer.I tried to connect even through wired router, still it doesnot detect the printer connected to the XP -Pc
I'm trying to connect my two computer (XP and Win 7) using a crossover cable. I set the the IP as 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2.The computers can see each each other and I can access the public folder of the win7-machine on my XP-machine. However, if I try accessing the xp-machine it says:
Quote: You don't have permission to access \PC. Contact your network administrator to request access.
Both computers can ping each other without problems.I've tried rebooting the computers, plugging the cable out and back in again, turn Internet (wifi) off but it doesn't work. Also, the File and Printer Sharing is enabled, too. Disabling the firewalls won't work and I deactivated the user/pass login so there is no password needed.
I replaced a Dir-655 at a coffee shop, with a new dir-655 a few weeks ago. They keep calling and saying that Windows clients are not working and that Mac clients do.My first thought is that they are overloading the router but I would think that all computers would have problems not just the Windows computers. could the router be so bogged down that it takes to long for DHCP request for windows computers assigning the IP twice?
