  • 1. Can't see other computer on wireless home network
    I have two PCs on XP home edition, broadband internet access through a cable modem, a Linksys wireless broadband- B router, a Linksys wireless adapter, and Norton Internet Security 2003. The cable modem is connected to the router, the host PC is connected to the router via ethernet, and the client PC is connected to the router via the wireless adapter. I have an internet connection through both PCs. I ran the network setup wizard on both PCs, but I can't see either PC or the shared printer. What am I doing wrong?

    Whenever i log on to certain websites the web page would load, but there are some windows that wont load and give an action cancelled. this does not occure on every website. I am using windows explorer 6.0.

I would appreaciate any feed back on this topic.. Thank you in advance..
  • 3. properties under ISP settings
    I uninstalled a program under the properties settings of my ISP. The package was listed under properties, networking. Now my connection to the internet signs off after a few minutes.

  • 4. Disconnecting from my broadband connecting.
    I have just recently starting using broadband. I have an problem when I have been on the broadband to long and have not been using it or if I try to disconnect from the broadband connection. It really causes the system to slowdown considerably. But it never appears to disconnect from my connection. Then if I try to shutdown I only get to the Savings settings section of the Windows shutdown process. I am not sure if this an issue with my supplier 'BT' or if it is a hardward or software issue. Does anyone have an ideas. Thank you. Dale Campbell
  • 5. Direcway Satellite ICS problems
    I have a new direcway internet system that is a two way system connected by usb port. I already had a network that was running fine with xp pro until the direcway was installed. the direcway will work ok for a while after reboot but stops suddenly after a few minutes. If i disable the local network nic the direcway will browse ok until the nic is enabled again. Direcway will not help me saying they do not support networks but say it will work. I have gone through all of the setup several times and double checked all suggestions from windows and direcway but nothing works. any help we be greatly appreciated.

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

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...

Any insight will be appreciated.

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
