First, apologies if this is in the wrong bit, couldnt find anything that looked like an area to post this.

OK, so like many im trying to share out my PC at home with my Xbox360 to save paying out the extortion that is the wireless adapter.

Setup is - Standard IBM style PC, built in NIC running Windows Ultimate in 32bit mode. PC has a USB wireless dongle attached which picks up wireless feed from a netgear router situated downstairs. XBox360 is standard, non-chipped etc, settings as per factory.

What I have done - I have connected both using a standard Cat5 ethernet cable, both in straight through and in crossover mode and done the following steps for both.

1. Connected and turned on both PC and XBox360
2. Gone into network sharing centre on the PC
3. PC has found a local network connection and also my wireless connection
4. Wireless connection is set to

Automatic configure IP
Automatic configure DNS

Will not allow me to share, comes up with an error simply stating that

An error occured while tryin to setup connection sharing

5. Local area set to

Automatic configure IP
Automatic configure DNS

I can set ICS on and this then starts altering the IP addressing (here is where it gets messy)

6. At this point my IP address goes from the one assigned by my router to something in the 169 range (meaning dodgy ether connection) and my connection to the internet drops. Reason im told is that there are two pc's with the same IP address in an error message. I do an ipc... Read more

I'm trying to connect my Dell desktop to my Sony laptop via a network cable. Neither computer is picking up that there is a connection. I've tried two different network cables both of which worked when I previously hooked up my laptop to other computers. I've even gone as far as installing a new network card in the desktop in case the existing port is knackered for whatever reason. All connections are enabled and all devices according to windows are working properly. Any idea's?

Been a while since I last visisted here, but this being the best tech support forum on the web (that i can find at least, ^_^) I've decided to once again bring my problems here.

About a week and a half ago I downloaded the free version of ZoneAlarm and installed it with no difficulties. I was off-line at the time. The next day I try to connect and it does not seem to work. About 4 days later my connection magicly seems to be working again. It may or may not have been my isp in the area, but I tried two dial up programs (mindspring, msn broswer) and niether worked. They would dial, then make odd noises and then not connect. I atributed this to possibly the mindsping router or possibly the mindspring/earthlink isp in the area. Although that wouldn't explain the msn connection not working I put my mind to rest since I could connect.

But, then about 3 days ago while dialing my modem started making odd noises. The phone number would dial, but it would pause and be somewhat slow in the latter parts of the connection process, but it would still connect. It would connect, but it would be either extremely slow or would say it was connection though it may or not have been actually connected since none of my internet programs worked. They would say can not connect to internet or something along those lines. I would have to dial up multiple times before it actually 'connected' and was a strong enough connection for my programs to use the connection. This was really... Read more

Let me start from the beginning:

I was infected with a trojan csrss.exe virus a day or so ago. I knew it the moment I clicked the link from Google that it was bad news. I immediately closed everything and ran MalwareBytes, which found two infected files, and attempted to remove it and restarted my computer. Everything seemed fine for a period of time, and then I realized I was getting Google redirects. And also, eventually my firefox browser lost it's connection and would tell me the proxy it was configured through wasn't available. I do not use a proxy on my computer, so I figured my virus was still hanging around. I rebooted in safe mode, and then ran MalwareBytes again. This time it found 8 infected files (still the same csrss.exe) and removed them and restarted. Since then my browsers have connected no problem.

However, now the problem is - other programs I try to run can't seem to connect to the internet. But some can. My skype has worked fine this whole time - but if I try to run a game that connects, it won't. I have since tried resetting my router, which didn't help. And then I downloaded and ran TDSSKiller using the tutorial here. It found one file in the System32 folder, sptd.sys, which I had the option of skipping, copying to quarantine, or deleting, and I just skipped because I wasn't sure to do.

I'm at a loss of what to do next, as certain programs of mine still can't connect to the internet. I appreciate the help.

Answer:Certain program connection problems after trojan removal

I have this same issue -- eager to read what replies you get.

In my case (posted as: "Suspected Rootkit Virus on WinXP SP3 is Serious" and sent here by Gringo since it wasn't solved) I can only use IE8, since Firefox and Chrome stopped "connecting" -- along with any other program that needs updating: MalwareBytes, Skype, Tweetdeck, Adobe -- you name it, the list keeps growing. But Gringo said it's not a virus/trojan/rootkit issue since MSE still updates, and I get the normal Microsoft updates. *sigh*

Good luck with getting answers -- and if you discover something in the meantime, please post, I'll be watching~!

I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit on a Dell Latitude D630 laptop. It is two years old, and I switched from Vista to 7 six months ago. I have a wireless internet connection through a Linksys router, model #: WRT160N V2. I use Mozilla Firefox version 3 as my primary browser.

Now the problem. Recently I was online and while I was searching through web sites a "Virus Scanner" malware program installed itself to my computer. The program would not allow me to open task manager or the start bar, and it started closing active windows on me. The only real option that it would give me was to purchase the "full version" of the program. I performed a hard shutdown, rebooted, and brought up Task Manager before the malware booted. I located the EXE through the Task Manager processes list and deleted it from my computer, which destroyed the program.

I believed that for the most part it would not give me any further trouble. I can access web pages through Firefox, receive email through Mozilla Thunderbird, and the overall performance of my computer has not changed. However, two days ago I discovered that none of the other programs I use (Zune, Google Chrome, Google Earth, Valve's Steam, Internet Explorer 8, World of Warcraft Launcher, etc) will connect to the internet. As an example, when attempting to connect to Steam I get this Error Message: "Unable to connect to HTTP Proxy. Your proxy may be misconfigured or offline. -336". This problem is a... Read more

So, here's the situation:

I'm currently trying to help a business set up their client-management program to work in two separate locations on two different high speed connections. On a LAN, the program essentially runs in two separate instances from the same executable. I'm not able to transfer the program itself, because the license does not carry over to the second computer; so basically, I have to run it from a shortcut to the primary PC.

My question is this: does anybody have an idea to run the program (as a shortcut or some type of server) from this location to the primary location, in a similar manner as the LAN computer using the shortcut?

Answer:Telewest BB Connection Help (share connection)

Personal opinion would be to go down the router road. However:Why not consider wireless?It's relatively cheap these days.2 wireless pci adapters will allow you to connect both machines for file sharing and pc1 can be used as PC 2's web access. You can buy 2 wireless adapters (802.11b) from ebuyer for 40 delivered and no doubt cheaper from the local PC shop. The only downside to this method is pc1 has to be switched on if PC requires web access.If you go to the blueyonder networking section click here they'll quite happily supply you with netgear products to the tune of 111 for a router, wireless pcmcia card for laptop and usb wireless adapter for PC (802.11b).Definitely consider wireless, especially with the summer coming up and that nice Chardonnay you been saving can be sipped whilst you while away endless hours surfing on the lounger in the garden.Happy hunting

Basically I am looking for a high end form of Skype, but because there are only two computers needed with this, I don't need any "middle-men" and the bad latency.

I am trying to collaborate with another musician. We've seen websites where you can pay something like 10 dollars a month to have live jam sessions with each other online but it's more ideal for groups of 4 people. We both have high speed connections and I figured there's got to be a free 2-person oriented alternative we could use to directly connect to each other over the web while achieving high audio quality and low latency.

Ok, I've got several pc's on my LAN and one of them needs to pull data from the other one. The data needs to come from the Program Files directory. And the other pc can't navigate to the Program Files Directory. How can I force it to share that folder?

Thanks!
 

Answer:How to share the Program Files Directory

Try right clicking on the folder in an explorer window.
There will be a Propertities tab
That gets you a window with the properties of that folder
Click on the sharing and security tab
And set it up...

BTW.....
Sharing the Program Files folder is "NOT SMART" (i.e. "stupid as hell" cuz it lets everybody that can access your network see that directory and muck with it.)

If you really have to do this it would be better to reinstall the the data generating app to it's own folder and share that.

hi all, I'm a newbie, but have spent some time searching thru prievous posts and upon other forums without finding an answer, so I apologise in advance if this is simpleton stuff.

I've moved into a mates house, who has moved to australia but left me his PC.

His setup is as follows: a 1ghz athlon running winxp home edition and is connected via a vigor2200usb router to a usb external alcatel speedtouch 330 modem, housed in a separate room to his PC. He used to run his PC and multiple xbox's from the router with no problems via his ISP PIPEX adsl account which.. I'm supposed to take over.

I've brought into the mix my own PC : P4 1.5 ghz running WINME which used to connect fine and run smoothly via a dialup 56k modem and ISP freeserve.

Well, as long as you're patient it'll probably do.

Is that wireless connection to a wireless router? If so, you simply bridge the wireless and wired connections in the one machine and connect the wired port to that switch. The other machines connected to the switch will have access to the router as long as that wireless machine is running.

I've been dual booting and sharing a Games directory (on a separate disk), and haven't noticed any problems, with the exception of some game saves not sharing correctly. Those games involved anything that wants to save to the Documents folder. I believe I can work around that, but I haven't checked into it yet.

That being said, I'm not sure how well it would work with 'standard' programs. Especially when a lot of information in Vista is no longer stored in the typical Program Files directory, but under User subfolders. Maybe someone else here can shed some more light on this, I make no claims of being an expert....

I believe, this is also caused when I have to transfer files from my ipod. that it has to cache on my computer, and then transfer to the network share / computer, this is my theory, I never tested it ofc, maybe someone with more knowledge could help.

it's like unpacking a rar into a network share.

Hello. 1st I'd like to excuse myself for possible grammatical fails in my problem, I'm not American nor Britainian so please accept my excuse.

Okay, here's the problem.

I'm connecting to internet via Wi-Fi USB adapter and my connection works great. But few days ago friend brought his PC to me so we could do some online gaming over night but there my problems started. We connected both PC's with ethernet cable in this scheme (My PC - ethernet cable - unset router - ethernet cable - his PC)

Okay the problem is that when I set up the LAN, I can't connect to the internet ( I noticed that I can surf the internet when I share my Wireless connection in advanced settings, so I use that trick to connect to the Internet when I need to ) but we can play in LAN.

So here's the real conflict. Why can't I share my internet connection to his PC. I allow my Wireless Network Connection sharing but he can't connect to the internet.

We're both using WinXP SP3 and we have almost same PC's. So can anyone help me?

Hey,

I'm having a bit of trouble.. I'm trying to get the two ethernet ports on my mobo to share a internet connection, but when i chose advanced under the port connected to router, i dont get a "Share this connection" button, nor do i get it on the other port.

If i try to run the "Setup Home Network Wizard", it doesnt open.. i get nothing. I had this working fine until i reformatted and reinstalled... Mobo is Asus A7N8X Deluxe... Can anyone help me out?

I am using a dial up wireless internet modem on one computer and wish to share this connection across the entire home group.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks for any help.

Answer:How do you share a dial up connection?

I would think you need to set one up in Network and Sharing Centre, then in Sharing tab in Properties, select the appropriate option. Give it a go.

Hi there,

I am currently trying to set up some internet sharing action, and am having a bit of difficulty. Ok, so there is a wireless network in the house I am in, my laptop has wireless in built, but my desktop has no wireless card so as I am in the attic of the house, I am unable to just use an ethernet cable to connect it to the internet. I DO, however, have a cat 5 crossover cable, and was just wondering if it is possible to go from wireless router to wireless laptop, then through a WIRED connection to the desktop?

I've been trying for about half an hour now, but no joy. Am I just being stupid, or do I just create a connection between the desktop and the laptop and then bridge it with the wireless connection? is there something that I need to activate that I've missed?

I have just bought a wireless card, and it should be arriving next week, but I just thought it might be interesting to someone to solve this question.

thanks guys

My parents have a Dell desktop running windows XP and a new HP 64bit desktop running Windows 7 64bit. They have an actiontec wireless modem/router. I can connect the modem to the Dell computer and get an internet connection. I can move the modem to the other roon and connect it to the new computer and get an internet connection. I cannot get it to work on both.

I connected the modem to the HP computer using ethernet port 1 on the modem and the Dell on ethernet port 2 via a long ethernet cable. I cannot enable ICS on Win 7 because it doesn't see anything else connected. The Dell says nothing is connected to the LAN. Not sure what is going on unless the ethernet cable is bad or possibly too long. Any ideas?

Later this morning I am going to take a multimeter over and do a continuity check on the ethernet cable (I crimped the ends on) and make sure it is good. Am I correct is saying that it should be a "straight through" ethernet cable? Just wondering if there's any other setting I should check while I'm there.

Answer:Cannot share internet connection

Is it a router you've connected your computer to? If it is, make sure you've enabled NAT in the router...
Often you can access those settings by opening either:

Answer:Way to share my internet connection?

Here's a checklist of things for ICS and file sharing for 2 croslinked computers (This is what works for Win 7 and XP):

- both computers set to the same workgroup
- restarts
- advanced sharing settings - all things turned on (network discovery etc.) except for password protected sharing
- bridged the connection with the internet
- turned on Internet Connection Sharing for the internet connection - this forced an ip to the other connection (192.168.137.1) and gave an option to select which connection should have access to the ICS (the second connection or the bridge - you choose the second / crosslinked cable connection)
- shared some folders on both computers
- worked instantly (the other pc aquired a correct ip and internet)

If you use a router to connect the two computers then your computer will not need to be on, you connect your computer to one of the router ports and then connect the modem to the router and lastly connect your daughters PC to the router and she will be able to share without your PC being on.

The host computer that the 3G device would be plugged into is running Windows XP version 2002 Service Pack 2.

I realize that they do sell 3G routers but I would like to use the D-Link DIR-615 that I already have to avoid buying another router. I also realize that it may be easier to share the connection by creating a wireless network on the host computer and then enable internet sharing, I don't want to do this I need to share the connection through the router.

You will need a second network card on the PC so that you can connect it to the router and use Internet Connection Sharing.

As long as one of your PCs has a WiFi card it can create its own wireless hot spot using Connectify.

I use it to connect my own iPhone to the internet when I'm too far from my router and it works a treat.

It allows you to be both connected to a router wirelessly and to be acting as a WiFi access point at the same time.

It is one of the most versatile networking apps out there.

you would need to purchase a router to make the pppoe connection if you wish to share with both pcs at the same time. Or if your fine with only one having acces at anygiven time you would need to get a pppoe connection manager thats 98 compatible as win98 doesn't natively do pppoe like xp.

I've recently networked two computers, a newer HP Pavilion (XP-h) and an older Compaq Presario (ME) using a d-link router. Both computers have a dial-up connection when needed (which is rare) but on occasions it would be nice to have both computers online at the same time.

Is there a way to do this? I know I could do it easily with a broadband connection, especially because I'm using a router anyway, but that's just not needed here.

thanks,

Answer:share a dial-up connection

you can do Internet Connection Sharing. You will have to choose which one will be the 'gateway', but I wouldn't recommend it on a dial-up service.

Actually I wouldn't recommend it period. It's a pain in the rear when something goes wrong.

Dear all
i know there is atopic with the same name but it doesn't solve my problem
any how i want to do the same work by sharing a printer with a vpn in connection but
when i ping it its giving me a message
requested time out
if i disable the VPN it connects normally
i don't know what to do really
 

Answer:Share printer over VPN connection?

Where is the printer located? On a Domain or Workgroup?
Is the Printer Shared already? If not that needs to be done at the location.
Do you have permission to use such shared printer?
Are you at work or at home?
Are you trying to use a printer on your Workgroup at the same time you connect to your company domain via VPN?
Are you on your company laptop?
Do you have permission granting you access to change administration functions on your company laptop.

The last one is very important because it would allow you to add your home printer to your laptop and you could use this printer any time you're connected over the VPN tunnel. If you can't get admin rights, then you need to bring the printer CD/DVD or have a support tech add your printer to your laptop. Ticket would need to be generated though? If required by your companies policies?

I have 3 computers in 3 separate rooms. When my daughter comes home from college she will have a notebook computer. Without having to disconnect the ethernet cable from the back of her Desktop PC is there a way to split the male end to 2 female ends. This would allow me to connect 2 short male to male ends. One to the PC and one to the notebook. Does such an inexpensive splitter exist. I was able to split my phone lines like this and that splitter was about 2 bucks. Do they make them for RJ45 ends?
 

Answer:how to share one ethernet connection

What you need is a router, and I'd recommend a wireless one so anyone with a laptop can connect without cabling.

Here's an Open Box router and wireless adapter for $23: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127175R
The modem connects to the router, and the router shares the connection with any and all computers connecting to it. So you can all be on the internet at the same, and even sahre files amongst yourselves.

A simple splitter won't work.

Answer:Can I share my broadband connection?

You would need to install a router, probably a 4 port as I have not seen a 2 port router. The router would be installed after the modem. The cable from the modem (that connects to the computer now) gets plugged into the WAN port on the router and the two computers woul be connected through the LAN ports on the router. You will probably have to purchase those cables seperately. Radio Shack is one source for all those components. Or you could go wireless. It depends on what fits your budget.

Well, I suppose you could. But why?

If you just made the connection on the main computer, you could then share it like you could a broadband connection. It would be no diffrent to setup.

Of course, it's going to be really slow if you share it. Any dialup connections have a tendency of cutting out a lot,so odds are pretty good it will keep going down.

Hello!
I need some help in establishing Internet connection sharing. I've got 2 laptops. Both are WiFi and Ethernet enabled. The 3rd piece of hardware is a WiFi router (I call it a "modem"), which acts as a bridge basically at this point. It's this one here:
HUAWEI wireless home gateway HG 530 (its official title)
The Internet connection to the ISP is a wired PPPoE one. There's RJ-45 cable that enters our apartment from the outside (I assume that there's a major router that serves the whole building with Fiber Optic all the way down to ISP itself, but I'm not sure and it's irrelevant to my issue here). I used to connect that RJ-45 cable into an appropriate jack on one of the laptops and I have a PPPoE W7 connection (called a High Speed Connection in Windows environment). So I just "dial" that Internet connection with username and password provided to me by my ISP. It's a regular Ethernet connection as far as HG530 is concerned. Then I started using laptop's WiFi to reach the HG530. I still use the same Windows PPPoE connection for dialing. It saves me having a cable on the floor which (the cable) was reachable by my cat who likes to chew stuff. So that's what I have right now.

You will also want to leave the Home group if you set one up. Home groups are made for Windows 7 machines only.

If you need to share files between those machines you should set up a Workgroup using the same workgroup name for all machines in the workgroup.

Hi there,
My LAN is using 192.168.xx.xx network. but I have a small office in Indonesia which all 4 users connects their notebook and retrieve email using SecurID(VPN). They are always connected and my VPN gives a 10.10.xx.xx IP address. my printer is network enabled and is plugged to the router(print server enabled). How do i share this printer with the users always connected to VPN. ?? pls help..
 

Answer:How to share printer over VPN connection?

well, if you have a print server on the network, and your outside users are VPN'd in, they should be able to ping to the address of that print server. If they can, you can direct them through the Add Printer Wizard, have them manually configure a new Standard TCP/IP port, and then add the print drivers. After that you should be good to go.

Just remember that you're bandwidth is going to be way dogged down trying to do this. We're talking zipolay bandwidth (OK, you'll have some, but probably just enough to frustrate you!)

Second, your Internet provider will definitely frown on this unless you use something (like a router) to mask the fact that you're using two systems at one time to access the Net. (Can't remember if Win9x or XP's Internet Connection Sharing does this masking automatically, but it seems to me that Win9x doesn't. I could be wrong).)

If you're using Win9x, you have to enable Internet Connection Sharing, I believe it is, in the Control Panel's Add/Remove Software: Click on the Windows tab and go to ... (have to look real quick ...) Internet Tools and enable Internet Connection Sharing. Too, firewalls may not work in this configuration either, so keep that in mind.

Hope this helps,

I am trying to set up an internet connection share. I cant share files because the host pc is XP Pro with NTFS and the network pc is Windows 98 Fat32. When I did the setup the Wizard said I could use the XP disk in the 98 system to complete the task. I also followed the directions from this note,

Try this:
"Just plug the Crossover cable into the two computers. To set it up go to Control Panel/Network.

If there is and entry there for TCP/IP fine. If not you need to add it. Click Add the Protocal/Add. Select Microsoft and select TCP/IP and OK.

Once you have TCP/IP install highlight it and click properties. Click specifiy IP address and insert 192.168.000.001. Enter sub net mask of 255.255.255.000.

You may get asked if you want to re-boot at this stage. Decline as there is more to do.

Click File and Printer sharing and tick both boxes. Now you can re-boot.

Do the same on the other computer but this time enter an IP address if 192.168.000.002 with the same mask. Install file and printer sharing as well and reboot.

Once the computers have re-booted you need to set up sharing. Right click on any drive or folder in Windows Explorer and clcik Sharing. Click shared as: Either axcept the name offered or enter one of your own. In access type I would suggest Full if you are the only one to be using these computers, otherwise enter passwords if required.

Do this for every Dri... Read more

Here's a lame diagram

(cable modem btw)

I've tried setting up internet connection sharing (ICS) with windows but it doesn't seem to be working. Would I need to make that computer a DHCP server some how? (because I'm assuming the switch isn't assigning IPs)
 

Answer:Share internet connection with a switch?

Instead of ICS, bridge the wireless adapter and the LAN adapter on the WiFi connected computer.

I'm with Tiscali, and using a Speedtouch 330 ADSL modem. I've connected the ethernet cable from the 360 to my PC (ie RJ45 port), and I have my PC connected online as per usual. What else do i have to do?According to Tiscali, I have to:-Windows XPTo use ICS to share your Internet connection, the host computer must have one network adapter configured to connect to the internal network, and one network adapter or modem configured to connect to the Internet. 1. Log on to your PC as Administrator or Owner. 2. In Windows XP, ICS is automatically loaded during installation. 3. On the taskbar, click Start, right-click My Network Places, and select Properties. 4. Right-click Local Area Connection. 5. On the shortcut menu, click Properties and click the Advanced tab. 6. Below Internet Connection Sharing, click the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box. 7. Click OK. The connection to the Internet is shared to your Xbox console.It doesn't work, though. Has anyone done this before and can guide me through the process?

Ok, before going out there and buying a router, i currently have 2 ethernet card installed in my pc. One of the ethernet card is integrated into my motherboard, and the other ethernet card is the one i added on made by realtek.

I know if i get this up somehow, i will have to leave my pc on while i use ps2 online, but i dont mind since my pc is on all the time.

So since i have 2 ethernet card, can i hook my ps2 up to the extra ethernet card i have installed and network them?
 

Answer:it is possible to share my pc connection with ps2 using 2 ethernet card?

You can use ICS to share the connection, though for $10-15 on a rebate deal, I'd buy a router at the drop of a hat, rather than screw around with ICS...

Can someone please point me in the right direction! I have installed a network card on both PC's running Win98SE and after checking the Network Neighbourhood, both PC's are showing fine. All cables are joined correctly as I can view the contents of the hard drive from the main to the second. However, I want to set up the PC's so that both can dial up seperatley (when only 1 on-line of course) or access the internet if the other PC is already on-line. My friend has two PC's running XP and he just clicks on explorer if the other PC is already online - Is this possible in Win98SE or can both PC's not access at the same time via dial up or shared? Confused? I bloody am!!

Answer:Share Internet Connection - Win 98SE

if you have a peer to peer network ie using a crossover cable then the host pc must be on and connected for the 2nd. pc to go online. If you have a router and ordinary cables you can have the internet connection direct to the router and then both of the pcs can initiate and use the net as and when they want to. I am assuming you have 1 modem/ broadband connection.
