  • 2. Laptop Can't Connect to Home Network
    I just upgraded to a Netgear WGU624 11g wireless home network system from a D-Link11b system. I have 2 desktops connected to the router via ethenet cable and 1 laptop with a Netgear 11g USB wireless card. XP Pro on the desktops. XP Home on the laptop. Both of my desktops network fine but the laptop can't connect (although it does have internet access). I keep getting an error message that the network is unavailable and that I might not have permission. I've checked my firewall settings and re-ran the network wizzard again just in case but it didn't work. I didn't have to manipulate any permissions with the 11b router. Everything worked fine. Anyone experience this before or have any suggestions as to what this might be? Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks. JM
  • 3. Sharing Drives within a Workgroup
    Running Windows XP on a three-computer LAN. Followed all of the directions for file/drive sharing for a workgroup (not a domain). Want to share all drives on all three computers. However, only one of three drives on computer A is shared; Zero of 3 drives shared on computer B; Both drives shared on computer C. All computers and drives are set up the same. On the drives that aren't shared I get the messages: "\\computername\drive 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 access permissions." "Not enough server storage is available to process this command." I am signed on as the administrator on all three computers. All printers share fine and all computers and their drives and files appear on all computers. Problem occurs when I try to share some of them Can't figure out why there is selective drive sharing and I have too little hair left to keep scratching my head on this problem. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  • 4. Networking and Explorer.exe
    Recently, I connected my Windows XP SP2 machine to a wireless network. I then realized an odd pattern of behaviour from parts of the OS that work through explorer.exe. For some reason, whenever the computer is connected to the network, anything that is controlled by explorer.exe slows down. This includes the Desktop, the Start button, menu, and tool-bars, My Computer, and Windows Explorer. Selecting and opening folders through Windows Explorer and My Computer are not affected, but when a file or shortcut is right clicked or double clicked on, the mouse pointer turns into and stays as the hourglass for about 10 seconds before what would have normally happened (when not connected to the network) actually happens. I have a similar problem with a machine at work that also runs on Windows XP SP2, but is connected to a wired network. Is there something fancy that explorer.exe tries to do when connected to a network that slows it down? Is there a way of disabling or patching this? I would appreciate any suggestions that will lead me to an answer to this problem.
  • 5. Networking, crazy problem
    I setup my new laptop connected to my desktop with an eithernet cable, ran the network wizard and bingo was surfing in a jiffy. Then I ran the file transfer wizard and transferred my files and settings from the desktop to the laptop and can no longer access the internet. After two days of struggle, I discovered I can access the secure sites, like Vanguard and my credit card account, but I get "cannot find server" for everything else. Any help would be appreciated. -- Thanks, Bob

ping loopback with tcp/ip disabled

Pinging the loopback address tests confirms that TCP/IP is running, correct?

Is there any reason that I can still ping the loopback address even though I 
have disabled TCP/IP? Or is my understanding of what pinging the loopback 
address does wrong?

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



The loopback address is internal to the TCP/IP stack and can be used
even with no installed network adapters.

How did you disable TCP/IP?

I disabled TCP/IP through the properties of the connection under the 
networking tab. A lab in the Microsoft 272 book instructed me to disable 
TCP/IP by unchecking the box there, which should keep pinging the loopback 
from working. It did not, and my instructor did not have an answer as to why.

Does unckecking the box not actually disable TCP/IP for the connection?

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



Unchecking the box disables TCP/IP on that network connection, and
only on that network connection.  It has no effect on other network
connections, and it has no effect on the loopback address.

The loopback address isn't associated with any network connection.
It's internal to the TCP/IP stack, and TCP/IP runs even when TCP/IP
isn't bound to any network connections.   To demonstrate that, you can
un-install all network adapters, open a command prompt window, and use
the "route print" command to show the TCP/IP route table.  It will
show:
  
   127.0.0.1  255.0.0.0  127.0.0.1  127.0.0.1  1

1.TCP/IP computer can ping world, world can't ping computer

Hi

I'm having a really strange situation going on with one of my Win2000
computers.

As the subject line states, it can ping and access the world (within
and outside of the LAN), however, no other computer can ping it (ie.
ping 192.168.2.3).

This machine is able to browse the web and ping everywhere, but no
other computer can ping it, which means that my XPPro laptop, which
doesn't have the netbui protocol installed, can't access the shares on
the w2k computer.

This machine is connected to a belkin 4 port router (which acts as the
DHCP server). If I set the machine to use a static IP address, it
can't browse the web at all.

I ran winsockfix.exe on it, which kinda resolved the internet access
problem (as long as the computer uses a dynamic IP address).

Also, I have no firewall running.

I already tried replacing the network card (as instructed in other,
similar, threads).

Next stop seems to be a full reinstall of windows 2000 unless someone
comes up with another clever idea.

Thanks in advance!!!!!

Alex

2.Failed TCP/IP Internet Loopback Test Error Code NC315-5W

Hi,

I ran PC Doctor to test the connection on my network adapter (Realtek 
RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC) 

The test failed on the following:

Failed TCP/IP Internal Loopback Test Error Code NC315-5W

Failed Network Communication Test Error Code NC315-1W

If anyone could advise on this it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

4.std tcp/ip verses hp std tcp/ip printer port

What is the difference between...
[standard tcp/ip]...
and...
[hp standard tcp/ip]...
when setting up a local printer port?
Any insight will be appreciated.
Thanks, Tracey


5.Microsoft TCP/IP V6 and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in network settings

Just noticed that I have both Microsoft TCP/IP V6 and Internet Protocol 
(TCP/IP) showing in network settings.

Is this (a) normal, and (b) likely to cause a conflict ? (XP Pro machines)

Should I remove one or the other?

Jeff
