Enter Network Credentials: What username/password do I enter?

Question: Enter Network Credentials: What username/password do I enter?

I regularly use my laptop over the wireless network to access folders on my desktop machine - both are Win 7.

Today I bought a new Win 10 laptop and when I try accessing the desktop machine, the new Win 10 laptop asks for UN/PW via the dialog "Enter network credentials."

I have no idea what to enter. Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi there,

I've got a laptop running Vista that I connect to the WLAN at university, but every time I connect, I have to re-enter my credentials because for some reason the "Save this user name and password for future use" check box is greyed out in the 'Enter Credentials' dialog.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Benjamin.

I tried to connect to my Desktop, from my SP3 (both on build: 15063.413), using the Network Directory in File Explorer. I get a pop-up window that is asking me to 'Enter Network Credential', my problem is I have entered every username & password combo I can think of to access the Desktop... BUT, I keep getting a 'The username or password is incorrect' message. I know I typed the correct username & password for the Desktop (MS account and password), and I don't ever remember having this pop-up come up in the past. Am I doing something wrong (entering the wrong credentials...the correct credential are NOT my MS account?), or did maybe something get kick-off during the last cumulative update? A little help please:)
Thank you.

When I go to Start, Run and enter path (//10.10.10.11) of one of our DC's, I see all the normal folders, shares, etc. My problem occurs when I click to view contents of the netlogon folder, it asks me for network credentials to connect. Why? I'm joined to the domain already and I am a domain admin. What's even stranger is when I log in with my AD credentials or even the domain administrator credentials, it fails every time (Access is denied.) This began only after the anniv. update.

Answer:Why are you prompted to enter domain network credentials in the below scenario?

The netlogon share is read only for all domain members, not just admins. So it would likely only prompt if you were having domain membership issues on the PC.
It browses fine when I try the equivilent on my laptop logged on as a regular domain user account (on anniversary update).

I have a windows 10 home computer with a Netgear Stora NAS. The PC is connected to my router via Wi-Fi whilst the NAS is via Ethernet cable. I am running McAfee Security Centre rather than Windows defender/Firewall. After every restart of my PC, the NAS
is no longer visible on the Network. If I then use a shortcut to the NAS I have pined in file explorer, a pop up appears asking for me to re-enter the password for the NAS. Once I have done this and checked the box to remember the credentials, the NAS reappears
and I can open the folders within it. However, as soon as I restart the PC, the same recurring problem arises. I have tried changing the ip address of the NAS to static on my BT Home Hub 6 but the problem persists. In credentials manager, the username and
password for the NAS are correct every time I check.
Can any one help? Is this a problem inherent to Windows 10 Credentials manager, a problem with the mixed Wi-Fi/Ethernet network, a firewall issue or something even more left field I haven't even considered?
Many thanks

Have had Linksys WRT54G router for about a year now. No problems. A little over a month ago it quit connecting to the internet and the only way I can connect to the internet is to click on the dsl icon and enter username and password. I bought my daughter an ACER laptop for Christmas. You could see the router in the list. No problem. Now she has to click on the dsl icon to connect. There are no available wireless connections now on either computer. We also have a Wii and it connected with no problem, but now it will not connect either. Went to router setup and changed the connection type to PPPoE and entered the username and password for the dsl, but it did not work either... I have not upgraded the firmware...do you think that would solve these issues?

I upgraded two desktops to Win 10 (one from Win 7 and one from Win 8.1). I have issues with setting up a network.

First, I tried to set up a homegroup and I failed (i already posted another question on this subject with no luck so far). OK, forget about the homegroup, lets do it without it.

At this point, desktop A can see shared folders and a printer on desktop B - I did have to enter network credentials. Desktop B however cannot. It can see the desktop A under Network but when I click on it, it is asking to Enter network credential to connect to A. When I do that, it says that the user name or password is incorrect (and I am using the same user name and password that I use on desktop A to log on). What am I missing?

Both computers are on the same Workgroup "WORKGROUP". BTW - and I am not sure if that is relevant - when I try to enter credentials on desktop B and it is asking for User name and Password, just below it says "Domain: Dudley" - Dudley is my logging name.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Hello there

So I'm experiencing strange BitLocker behaviour. I have this PC at work. Clean Windows 8 x64 installation, 3 HDD (AHCI), no SSD.

After I set up BitLocker to encrypt "C" partition, it gave me pop-up window, that I should restart PC to test the BitLocker loader. So I clicked Yes. And after few seconds I got this:

JPG IMAGE - http://www.eightforums.com/attachments/f1/f2/22871d1370880908t-very-strange-bitlocker-enter-password-startup-screen-5jkippr.jpg

Mind, I'm still ABLE TO type password (i can't see sh** though), after I hit enter Windows IS booting, but it's really weird to see above picture instead of:


My GFX is OK, I tested it with games, benchmarks etc.
BitLocker simply cannot, for whatever reason, use my video card properly and displays those weird lines. After all - it hasn't loaded the whole Windows yet. Than again, it IS a bit strange, as Windows installers tend to work fine.


Any thoughts people?

Kind Regards

Whenever i try to log on to my work server using remote desktop on windows 7, i get the above message (with xx.xxx.xxx.xx being the servers IP adress), no matter what i try. I have allowed connections from computers running any version of remote desktop in control panel -> system and security ->allow remote access, but to no avail. I have also tried using the domain name instead of the IP, but it still wont work. I can access the server from my XP machine, so the problem must be on the windows 7 machine somewhere. I hope you can help me.

I suggest you create a new admin account and login on the machine with new created account to check the result. If the issue persists, please restart the machine with the original user account and collect the following log file for research.

a. Click "Start", input "eventvwr" (without quotation marks) in the Start Search bar and press Enter.
b. Right click on "Application" on the left frame, choose "Save Log file As"; in the pop-up window, click to choose the Desktop icon on the left frame, input "app" in the "File name" blank, and then click save.
c. Right click on "System", with the same method, save it as "sys".
d. Locate the two saved log files on the Desktop and upload it.

Hi,
I currently have two pcs running Windows 7 Home Premium at Service Pack 1. The two pcs - one a laptop and the other a desktop - are connected through a Netgear router. From the desktop, I can access the laptop from the desktop directly, without a prompt for user id and password, but when I try to access the desktop from the laptop I am prompted for a network user id and password and have no idea what to enter.
Because I just recently had a Vista pc in the mix, I am using workgroup rather than homegroup. The workgroup on both pcs is set equal to WORKGROUP.
I have turned on Network Discovery, File and Printer Sharing, Public Folder Sharing, and 128 bit encryption. Password Protected Sharing is turned off.
I have deleted all credentials from both machines, so Windows Credentials, Certificate-Based Credentials, and Generic Credentials are set to No Windows credentials, No certificates, and No generic credentials respectively.
The guest user is defined on the desktop without a password, but is not defined on the laptop.
I realize that this problem has been addressed before, but none of the suggested fixes work in my case.
I should mention that until last night I was able to access the desktop from the laptop without being prompted for user id and password.

Answer:Enter Network Password

Actually, I found that entering any string as userid and password gets you past the prompt and allows you to access shared drives on the desktop. Once entered, the prompt disappears for the duration of the current boot, re-appearing only when the laptop is restarted.

Have a dilemma here about this "Enter Network Password" issue.

Been reading some of the other threads and tried some of the settings offered and still nothing seems to work. I'm not understanding why I have to enter a network password and where its coming from. Obliviously its from Windows 7. Also I'm assuming the enter network password is for the homegroup? I don't even have homegroup setup or enabled. If it was once setup and then disabled will the password prompt still pop-up? I'm currently using the work network as the network location, with password protect sharing off and under Homegroup connections use User Account and passwords.

I have a windows server 03 running and all my comps can login with the 03 local account but windows 7 wont let me with out putting in a "Enter Network Password". I even tested this using XP on vmware bridged environment and it let me login. So I dont know what the deal is with Windows7.

Answer:Enter Network Password

You should first check the Advanced Sharing settings via the Network and Sharing Center, make sure that the "Use account names and passwords to access other computers" isn't checked.

Also check the time/date settings on the machine to make sure it's set exactly the same as the other machines.

In the last couple of days I am receiving a pop up box "Enter Network Password". It keep coming back no matter what I do. This happened several years ago but I can't remember how to disable it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I believe it comes from Microsoft Outlook somehow. See photo. Thx. Micromos

 

Answer:Enter Network Password pop up

I would assume it comes from your email program as it has your email information entered.

I assume you check the box that says "Save this password...." and it still comes up? Does Outlook still receive email, doe sit still send email? In Outlook you can have it setup so that it has an username and password enabled for sending so maybe only that part is wrong, but that setting is best set to use the same settings as the incoming server.

If so you must enter the correct email password associated with that email address, if you are unsure what that password is you will need to contact WowWay to get the password reset or to find out what is wrong. It may be that they have updated their email service and you need to reenter the email settings in Outlook.

Need someone's help in a big way.

Here is the situation;

Anytime my computer accesses the internet (IE or messenger) a pop up appears that asks for me to "Enter Network Password" just like when you login to Windows. It will do this about 20 times between loading pages - obviously anytime information is sent.

I have entered everyting from A to Z but nothing works. Now, if I use Mozzila i do not get this.

Seem strange?

I think is may be linked to our domain (Geecs.com) network setting which turns out to be the same as our homepage. The strange thing is the pop up wants to access out web page (66.48.93.132) but the domain network is not connected in any way to the homepage.

I'll try to make this not so confusing.
I have a home network with 4 PCs.
PC 1: Win 2000, cable modem & MS wireless router
PC 2: XP, MS wireless NIC
PC 3: Win 2000, D-Link 520 wireless NIC
PC 4: Win 2000, D-Link 520 wireless NIC

File & Print sharing is allowed on all. All security settings are the same on all. All have null passwords, no user name or passwords are required to log on locally.

All 4 can see each other.
PC 1 & 2 can browse each other's folders. (both have Microsoft networking hardware (the router and NIC))
PC 3 & 4 can browse each other, and browse 1 & 2 also.

Now here's the problem. When sitting at PC 1 or 2 and trying to browse 3 or 4, I get a dialog box titled Enter Network Password with the 2 fields "Connect As" and "Password". I have no idea what user name or password that would be, none of these PCs are set up to require any.

I suspect the D Link nics but I've found no settings to not require a password. I suspect them because the PCs with the MS network hardware can browse each other but not the D Link pcs, and the D Link PCs can browse each other PLUS the two with MS hardware.
Any help would be appreciated.

So anyway, when I go to access either W7 machine from the other over the network, a dialog pops up entitled "Windows Security" that says "Enter Network Password"

Well, I never set one up. I have no idea what that is or where it is coming from. I have all the advanced sharing permissions set so that there is supposed to be no password.

I went on each machine and set all the drives to share with all users...etc., and this still comes up. I am really pissed honestly. I dont see why this has to be setup so difficult. I thought Windows 7 was supposed to be better and easier to use...well...its not.

Can someone help with this? I just want my router to be my security point, and the rest of my home network to be totally open. I want to simply be able to designeated shared drives and folders on the machine on which they reside...just like Windows XP did. Cant it be the simpl... Read more

Answer:Enter network password??? Wtf?

If you plan on sharing entire drives accross your network you need to set the drives permission settings using the "sharing tab" but more importantly for sharing drives you need to go into the "Security tab" and allow the drive to be accessed by "Everyone". The picture below should help. From a security stand point you would be better off just sharing the entire User folder instead.

As for sharing with the XP machine, make sure the workgroup name is the same then run the XP network set up wizard and allow some folders to be shared. It's worked for me everytime. If it's XP pro then you should disable simple file sharing.

As above really. Trying to create a network for file sharing, as have upgraded the 'server' (part of a Workgroup, not a Domain) from WinXP to Win7 and experienced problems ever since. Ironically the problems haven't mainly been with sharing files between Win7 and WinXP systems, but between 2 Win7 systems.

I bought a new Win7 laptop and tried to connect it to the server, but it hasn't had Read/Write privileges over the files in the Win7 server. Entering a username and password to gain access to the servers folders has not been a problem, and as far as I know, opening files such as documents has not been a problem either. However, when trying to save an edited document, access is denied, and if I try to open an executable file (this is necessary for a node installation), it prompts me for a network password.

Every combination possible of username and password from the 2 systems (including '\' or 'SYSTEMNAME\' before the username) has not worked. I tried syncing the times which was apparently a previous problem, but to no avail. I am unable to access Local Security Policy, as the server is running off Home Premium. I have tried creating a new workgroup, removing and changing passwords, enabling guest access to the network through the Windows Resource Kit Command Shell, creating identical users on both computers, but nothing appears to have worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I have a user with an HP Probook 5310m. Every few weeks the user is unable to connect to a wifi network. User types correct password but says unable to connect to network, incorrect password. I have verified the password is correct. I used forget network, still does not work. The only solution is to completely remove the wireless adapter driver, delete the software, and then install the wireless adapter again. Once the driver is installed, the user is able to enter the password and connect to the network. Again, after a few weeks, the problem occurs again.
Does anyone have an idea on what is causing this problem? Thanks for your help in advance!

I've been through pages and pages of Google and Bing searches, and I've found plenty who have this issue, but none who seem to get it solved. In a nutshell:

Three computers, all running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, are members of a Homegroup that functioned perfectly for more than a year until Tuesday of this week. On Tuesday, I installed Windows updates and also updated from Norton 360 v5 to v6.

Computer A and B don't have password protected logins to Windows; Computer C is password protected. Until Tuesday, A and B have never been required to enter a password to access shared files and folders on C. Computer A still communicates fine in both directions with B and C, without having to enter C's Windows login credentials. B can be accessed by C, but when B attempts to access the C libraries that are shared by C to the Homegroup, the appropriate shared folders are shown (Documents, Pictures, etc.), but instead of their usual icons, the icons look like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/smoddelmog/6891302037/ and if I try to click on them, I am prompted for a Network Password like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/smoddelmog/6891301981/ (sorry for the links, but I can't seem to make the forum photo inserter work).

2 - When stating or rebooting the 98se it can not find the XP UNTIL I log off. This is when I first get a dialog box (Enter Network Password). After explorer restarts everything is great until next start up.

Answer:Enter Network Password * Constantly

As a matter of interest, I'd be very grateful for a definitive answer to this as well. Although I too have been plagued by this since recently installing Windows 7 64-bit, I did use to have the problem with Outlook Express on XP as well, although it seemed to be slowly disappearing of it's own accord. I've read answers elsewhere on this forum that relate to Yahoo e-mail accounts; I have a variety of accounts most of which are Hotmail and a couple of which relate to my own website (which I won't be self-serving enough to post details of here!). The problem seems to occur on all of the accounts, though mainly the Hotmail and .msn ones, and the 'enter network password' window is popping up several times a day (often several times in an hour ... !) which is really annoying!! I've checked a number of other forums and tried some of the answers suggested therein, so far without any success whatsoever. I really don't want to start messing with the registry unless I absolutely have to; although I do have some computer-savvy, that's an area that I feel is best left alone unless there's really no other choice!

Any and all answers will be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi All,
I have a new (to me) pc. It is an HP Media Center PC. I believe it was manufactured sometime around 2005. Also, I just switched from Comcast Internet to Verizon Internet. I am having trouble sending email from Outlook 2003. I can get email but not send it. I've tried several things to resolve the problem but, usually, have no idea what I'm doing. I tried resetting the router user ID and password but don't know if that has anything to do with my problem. After I hit the reset button on the Verizon/Actiontec router I eventually got to a page, from Verizon, asking for a User ID and password but wasn't sure what to input. My PC was given to me by a friend who used it in a small business he owns. I believe there were other computers in his business network. Would that be the network the prompt is referring to? I don't have a user ID or password for that network but may be able to get them. There are also other Users in my house who are on the Verizon account that I use. I am not the primary account holder but am the person trying to set up the email feature. The other computers are a Toshiba laptop and a Mac. At this point I'm more confused than ever. I'd really appreciate some help. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hey all !

I am on windows vista and using a toshiba satellite x205-sli5 laptop.

I can connect to my school's network just fine, but every so often, it will suddenly disconnect me and ask me to re-enter my username and password.

My school network is my preferred network, and I followed my school's instructions to the letter on how to set it up for vista. I have emailed the tech department at my school about this, and they kept my laptop for 2 days, gave it back to me after saying they "ran the wizard" (whatever that means) to set up the connection again, but I still had a problem. I contacted them again, but I think they really just don't know or care what is up.

Everything else seems fine, everything is running ok. No other problems that I'm aware of.

All of a sudden yesterday, I started getting pop up dialog boxes for all 3 accounts headed 'Enter Network Password' for each separate account. They come up every couple of minutes asking me to type in my password. Each has three lines of dialog, showing my email account name, user name and the password as a series of ******.

I have noticed that the password ****** are far longer than they should be.

These dialog boxes have appeared 6 times since I started typing this. Each time it appears I cannot do anything else till I click it.

Has anyone any idea why this is happening?

Answer:Getting pop-up Enter Network Password boxes in Outlook.....

I had this same problem with my GMAIL email in Outlook.
I couldn't log in to my email and "ENTER NETWORK PASSWORD" box kept popping up.
 
I fixed it by going to gmail.com and accessing the :
account>Manage Security> and turning off the 2-step verification option.
Outlook and some other programs are not compatible with this 2-step verification option.

Afterwards Outlook behaved correctly.
 
If your having this Enter Network Password Dialogue problem with Outlook, Try checking the email account's settings on your Webmail Side. There may be a Security feature that was turned on, that should be turned off; Or maybe the email provider turned something on due to an upgrade to your account without your Say-So.
But before all of this, make sure your Outlook Email Settings are for sure 100% Correct.
Hope this helps.

Answer:Enter Network Password to access computers???

Everything I've read about this type of name resolution problem on VPN's was because of the client not having a proper DNS address.

I am using XP Pro my email is "Outlook"

Answer:constant message - "Enter Network Password"

you could try creating a new email account in outlook, and then setting it as default.

Hi. Can anyone help please? I'm being driven mad by a constantly repeated request appearing on my screen to Enter Network Password - (it's happened again as I write this!) It occurs every couple of minutes. Its the small window that contains my email server (duly completed) the user name (also completed) and the Password (which is completed and asterisked out)It has an 'check box' option to save this password in the password list - but this makes no difference at all and the more you check that particular box, it just keeps coming back, once you click 'OK'. I have a 'Local Area Connection' which delivers broadband - and it's reported as being o.k. I work a lot through MS Outlook (which picks up 4 or so mail boxes routed to it). I'm running WinXP. I think it's something to do with this - but just can't be sure. I've been through every menu. Any assistance would be most appreciated. Thanks.

I have read so many posts on this subject on various forums - but hoping someone knows of a quick and easy fix for the window that is constantly popping up in Outlook Express when sending/receiving mail. It asks for the network password, even though the password is in the box and ticked. It happens almost everytime - have tried some of the fixes I have read about, but still having the same problem. It doesn't prevent me getting my emails in, but is very irritating! Thanks in advance!

Answer:Constant pop up window - enter network password!

Just thought I should clarify - the password is there, but when I tick the box it doesn't stay.

I use imap to bring e-mail into and send it out of Outlook 2003.

Recently I had to change the password of my e-mail account. Now I keep getting the "Enter Network Password" screen when using Outlook -- this in spite of having put the new password into Outlook's e-mail setup. It won't even work when I manually re-enter it on the "Enter Network Password" screen and click Remember Password.

I've gone through all the drill that Microsoft suggests.

HELP!

Answer:Enter Network Password - Outlook 2003

What is your Email provider? Can you access your Email through a browser? In other words, does you Email provider accept your new password? Google how to setup Email Settings for your provider, you may be missing a setting.

Hi guys,Just wondering whether anybody can suggest a solution to this...I have PC with Windows Vista and I am using Outlook 2003. I have two POP3 email accounts that I use to send/receive mail. These have been working fine until last week when I now get a "Enter Network Password" window popping up when I send/receive mail. I haven't changed anything and i still get prompted each time even though i ask to save the password. Help!!!I've had a trawl around on the Web and there seem to be lots of variants of this problem ranging from deleting profiles to modifying corrupt Registry entries.I'm tempted to backup Outlook Folders, delete email accounts and re-add and worst case even remove/re-install Outlook.Does anybody have any suggestions?I'm assuming System Restore won't be any use unless it's a corrupted Registry entry.Thanks in advance. Mike

Answer:Problems with "Enter Network Password" window

I had a similar issue and system restore does fix it. The other perhaps simpler way is to delete your email addys and redo them.

When I'm in Outlook 2002, it has starting this annoying pop up SEVERAL times and it's driving me CRAZY

It wants me to verify my name and password and even when I click REMEMBER it still pops up.

HOW do I get it to stop ?!??!?!


 

Answer:How to stop annoying ENTER NETWORK PASSWORD box

Being a Networkin Admin at the hospital, I have seen this many time. The way I have found is to do this.

In Outlook, go into Account Settings and choose the account you have setup. Under logon information, be sure you have the correct username and password, check the box that says remember. Also, when entering the username, some ISP's require the full email address and some just require the username without the ex. (@bellsouth.net).

Once you do this click ok and if it comes up again, enter the correct password and if it still comes up there is a problem with the username or password. The reason it prompts is because it can't validiate the username or password so be sure this is correct.

Answer:How to stop Enter Network Password in Outlook

sounds like you may have a corrupt account, create a new account with the settings as normal, if it works, you can use that one from now on and delete the old one.i hate computers!but cant help myself....

Hi all. Not too good with computer issues, but I have been reluctantly chosen as the household tech wizard. lol

Husband updated his laptop to Windows 10 several months ago. So far it's been good, and he likes it...that is until this morning. He opens the laptop...no internet connection. It shows our wifi network, but won't connect. He enters his password...says he needs to enter password for that device. Enter password from before Windows 10...no good. Enter password for micorstoft...no good.

Using my laptop (Windows 7) to find fix. Suggestions I've tried: Troublshoot network connection by right clicking. Right Click won't work...nothing happens. Maybe keyboard language is wrong...no settings button available to look at keyboard properties. Try connecting directly to router...won't make connection. We've rebooted the computer a couple of times, to no avail.

Our phones are connected, my laptop is connected, our chromecast is connected, so we know it's not the router. There is something up with his laptop.

Playing ring around the rosey is not the best way to spend a Sunday morning. no internet connection = no ability to enter password = not able to troubleshoot internet connection = no internet connection = no ability to enter password.

Answer:no network connection = no ability to enter password = no network conn

Ok. Here goes...His phone worked, my phone did work then quit working, our Smart TV quit working. My laptop continued to be connected, etc. Reset modem, problem solved. OMG!!!!!! Weird that some devices worked while others didn't.

Whenever I go into Outlook 2007, I get the "Enter Network Password" popup appearing every few seconds and can have 2 occurrences of it within a few secondes of each other. Outlook wont let me receive or send emails, and then after some hours, suddenly I might receive my emails, then it dries up again. This popup does not occur if I am not in Outlook, and if I access my mail accounts on the internet (through BT Yahoo for instance) they come thr9ugh normally. This problem is making outlook impossible to use. Any ideas? I have tried downloading the registry fix software and fixing all registry errors. What can I do next?
