Dell :: No Icon On Inspiron 1525 Running Vista Premium 32bit

Aug 25, 2012

I have followed instructions and installed R140135.., also R159805

I have not received any error messages. Fn+F2 did not work, so I tried to activate BTTray within both of the driver programs. Nothing has happened. My Bluetooth devices (via Control panel) is empty. Bluetooth settings displays nothing.

I am trying to transfer photos from my Nokia phone. The phone cannot find the laptop.If I slide the button next to the CD drawer I get visibility of Wireless, or accidently turn it off (!).Under Dell drivers I can see WIDCOMM, R14035 & R159805.If I type BTTray.exe, it takes me there but double clicking it does nothing. Ditto if I run R159805twon.

Home Network :: Local Access Only On Vista Laptop?

Nov 13, 2012

Local Access Only on Vista PC

I restored an old Vista laptop to out-of-the-box state to give to my Dad. This laptop had a wireless connection to the internet and network previously. After the restore, I can't get a connection to the internet, even though my router sees it and it has an ip address. It says Unidentified Network Local Access only, and it doesn't see any of the computers on the network. Sometimes the other computers see it but can't connect, sometimes, the other computers don't see it. I hate Vista.

Stats on Laptop:
Toshiba A215-S4747
Atheros AR5007EG

All my other eight devices have an internet connection no problem, but I powered off the modem and router a couple of times with no change. I tried updating the Atheros to the latest driver on Toshiba's website for this model, but it doesn't seem to take. If I uninstall the old drivers, Windows rudely just immediately reinstalls them again. If I just update the driver, and pick the new file, the driver version remains the same as the previous driver. I'm banging my head on the wall with the driver

Ping successful on: (the laptop's IP address)

Windows 7 Can See But Not Access Files On XP SP3 And Vista Premium

Aug 6, 2011

System Info Utility version
HP s3240uk Pavilion Slimline
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional , Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+, AMD64 Family 15 Model


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.

Dell Computer Running Vista Unable To Access Network?

Nov 19, 2012

I can't access anything on the network. The computer is a Dell running Windows Vista Home Premium. All attempts to access the network fail (ping, local shares, http) and other machines cannot access this one. Network & Sharing Center shows a fault between the Home Network and the internet, however I am unable to Ping or be Pinged by other computers on the Home Network. Other machines on the network are working fine both wired and wireless, although the machine in question is wired only (no wireless NIC).

The following items have been attempted, some many times, in no particular order, all producing no change in symptoms (not a complete list).

Network & Sharing diagnose & repair/reset NIC card.
Cold boot.
Last known good.
Safe mode with networking support.
Disable/stop all non-essential services & applications including firewall and antivirus.
Upgrade network drivers.

ICS On Windows 7 Home Premium Toshiba Netbook?

Feb 15, 2011

I was wondering if internet connection sharing was made impossible by Microsoft on netbooks even after an Anytime Upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. This is because whenever I create an Ad-Hoc network on my netbook I am unable to turn on Internet Connection Sharing. Though my friend with a Toshiba notebook running Home Premium is able to turn on Internet Connection Sharing.

Accessing Server Shares With Windows 7 Home Premium

Jul 30, 2012

I recently bought a personal laptop that I'd like to use at work. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium installed and because of that, I can't join it to the Windows Server 2003 domain we have. I don't really need to print or any of the other things that go with being on the domain, I just need access to a few key folders. Is there any way to access shares on the server with Win 7 Home?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit Loses Homegroup?

Jan 28, 2011

It works then it stops seeing the homegroup machines. After struggling with this I have determined some things.

When it stops seeing any homegroup machines, xp, vista 64 and two dlink 323 nas boxes, I can get it working again by restoring the drive with a backup for a time when it did work.

I ran a lan software that showed me mac address, ip address, master brower and workgroup of every machine on the network. I ran the software when the Windows 7 home premium machine didn't see the workgroup. The software showed the windows home premium 64bit machine was not reporting the homegroup name. Looks to me like something is changing causing the win 7 home not to report the workgroup name. I tried changing the workgroup name, rebooting, changing it back then rebooting and it didnt' fix it.

When the machine is not seeing the workgroup I can ping the other machines but I can't map them using their IP addresses. When it lost the workgroup lately I noticed the first sign this time was I could see the machines and directories but could not access them being told I didn't have permissions/access basically. Can't remember the exact wording.

I am at a loss of what to do to fix this and I would perfer a fix verses reinstalling everything from scratch which may or may not perminately fix the problem.

Fresh Install Of Windows 7 Home Premium / Won't Connect To Wifi

Feb 29, 2012

I have a compaq presario v2000 that i just installed windows 7 hope premium on (did a full hdd wipe, and reinstall windows)Windows 7 wireless connection manager can see all available wifi connections, but will not connect to any of them.Ive tried this on WPA2 networks, unsecured networks at several places (my office, wendy's, mcdonald's, my home, etc) i dont think it's the internal wifi card, as I could connect to those networks ok before the wipe/reload.I'm thinking it's a driver issue, but it's using the WHCL driver dated 2009 that is included in Windows 7, and I've not been able to find a more up-to-date one.device manager shows Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN, but not exact model number.Compaq support site has drivers for XP & Vista only, and the Vista driver page doesn't include wifi card drivers.

Printer Won't Print Unless (HP DV9000 Running Vista 64 Bit) Restarted

Oct 26, 2011

I was just at a "customer's" house doing some virus removals and what not. After I was done he asked me if I would network his printer to his 3 pc's throughout the house. 2 of the computers worked fine with the printer, but the one laptop (HP dv9000 running Vista 64 bit) wouldn't print unless I restarted it. I could click print, the job would go to the print queue, but that's it. It'd just stay there until I shut down the laptop and restarted it. Soon as vista would boot back up the job would automatically go on through and start printing.

Advent Laptop Running Vista Can't Find Network

Jun 17, 2012

I have an Advent Laptop running vista and I have a problem with windows suddenly not being able to find one specific wifi network. I have no problem connecting to my home network, or that of any of my friends networks.However when I go to the holiday park where I have a caravan and go into the owners lounge to use the free wifi windows can't find it. (I used to be able to connect with no problem, it's just that for some reason windows can't find it now). Everybody else in the lounge can connect with no problem.If I use my phone's usb tethering feature I can connect to the wifi network. If go into another part of the complex I can connect to the wifi there with no problem.On the park they operate two networks, one in the owners lounge, the one I can no longer connect to, and one in the cafe/bar which I can connect to.I can only assume that some 'setting' on my laptop has changed and is stopping windows finding the network, but I have no idea what it could be.
