Can't share interent connection

Question: Can't share interent connection

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?

Thanks

XP, Vista, Printer Sharing and One BIG Mess





If using Norton, McAfee, Trend Micro I.S., make sure file and printer sharing is enabled in THEIR firewall (or LAN allowed, depending on how their Exceptions are worded in their Firewall)



I have got one of my client has got a simple office network with three PCs (2 desktops A and B and one laptop C,,,,,all of them have got Vista Home edition).

Those desktop are connected through a modem router.

He bought a computer B recently and it has a Trend Micro Internet Security installed on it,,,,,,,a USB printer is connected to this B PC to be shared with A and C.

The other two PCs have not got Trend Micro Internet Security (I am aware of security implication , this is not the issue of our thread)

the printer is shared but A and C can not ping and can not print.

I am sure that the problem lies with the Firewall setting for Trend Micro Internet Security, because when I shut down it from A and C I can ping the B and I can print ,,,,while when Trend Micro Internet Security is running I can not ping B and I can not print.

I tired google without any success.

Answer:Vista home edition and Trend Micro Interent Security and Share USB printer

http://esupport.trendmicro.com/5/Wh...l-Firewall-Profiles-of-Trend-Micro-Inter.aspx? Your Google search was worded a little strangely... http://www.google.com/search?q="Trend+Micro+Internet+Security"+printer+sharing

If all the PCs are behind a NAT router, then the LAN is inherently firewalled from the internet. A software firewall on the PC is only protecting it from the other PCs on the LAN, and from sending data out (if the software is configured for that). If you trust the other PCs on the LAN, the easiest solution may be to simply remove the firewall from that PC.

I have Win XP Home and freeserve hometime as my ISP, as the moment when I log off to go into someone else's account, the internet connection cuts off, and when my son or daughter want to gain access to the Interent, they always have to go on my account, in the freeserve hometime properties I have tried setting the connection to anyone, but when I try to connect to the Interent when this is enabled, an error message appears saying that this is an invalid user name or password, how do I get all accounts to be able to gain access to the Internet and is there a way the Internet can stay connected between log off's when I switch to a different user. Thanks for anyhelp.

Answer:interent connection for all accounts

thanks very much, that worked brillantly, only trouble now is that logging off accounts to log onto a different user is much slower, usally it's around 5-10 seconds, but now it's about 10-20 seconds, it does not really bother me that much, but I'd like it to be a bit faster, any suggestions anyone, thanks for the help.

Hi everyone:  I just updated my system by installing Windows XP.  Now I cannot get my cable internet connection to connect.  I turned off the cable and let it sit and then turned it back on, but still no connection.  Do I just need to call the cable company?  Also, my screen is off to the left with a black strip on the right and top and bottom.  Not all my icons show.  How can I get a full screen or centered?  Thanks.

Answer:Interent Connection Trouble

internet connection:Check out your device manager by right-clicking on My Computer and selecting Manage. In the window that pops up, go to the Device Manager. Look through the list of devices and see if there are any devices with a problem. (small yellow icon will be easy to spot) My guess is you need to install a couple device drivers to get everything back to normal.monitor:It is probably a problem with the monitor itself. Explore the on-screen menu by using the buttons on the monitor. There should be an option to reset or auto-adjust. That should be all it needs.

This often stops the smooth running of the game and is very annoying. A box usually appears saying that a programme Im running has requested that I connect to the internet and even though this window has a box to tick if you want to prevent this unsolicited connection from occuring again it keeps happening. Any ideas how I can stop this?

Hello,

I am running a desktop system with XP (SP2) as an OS. I use Avast anti virus, Sunbelt Kerio Firewall and Spybot search and destroy.

I connect to the internet via a belkin router / modem combination. (A Belkin ADSL2 + Modem with Wireless G router). I am hard wired to this.

My house mate also connects to the internet using this router. He connects wirelessly. He finds that he is able to connect for about 20 minutes to (sometimes) an hour and then the connection fails. He currently puts this down to over heating. He tries a reboot - this occasionally works, but not always. Otherwise it is a case of turning the laptop off and leaving it for several hours. Obviously this is not the best solution.

We do not use the network for file sharing / gaming. It is only to provide us both with internet access.

Any thoughts or directions to posts that have a similar theme would be a great help.

Will.

is there a simple way to switch between them?

Answer:choose specific network connection for interent access

I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to do but if you go to your IPv4 properties you can use the alternate configuration to add different Ip's, DNS servers and so on.
You can also use the advanced tab to enter the TCP/IP info for more than one connection.

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

I have win xp sp3

I appreciate any help

thank you
 

Answer:How to share one connection on 3 pcs ?

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.

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. I notified them I was moving but upon getting here was unable to access the internet from that PC, even if I removed the broadband connections (microfilters) from the house. (v90 modem now removed along with dial up settings)

I began to get "poproxy.exe has caused an error in KERNEL32.DLL" messages on bootup which i've traced to my about to expire copy of Norton AV, which is now removed.

In addtition I started to get weird error messages on startup to do with "program X causing an error in KERNEL32.DLL" which I gather can be for "reason X".

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.

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)

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.

Answer:how to share PPP0E connection ?

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.

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:

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.

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,

Hi. I'm having this problem in Windows 8 where I can't share the Internet with another PC, which runs Windows XP. My Internet connection name displays as "Unidentified network" which I think disables ICS and sharing altogether. I've also tried changing configurations in the HomeGroup and, although a second connection called "Network 2" set as "Private network" appears, it disappears after I reboot the PC. Any help please?

Answer:Can't share Internet connection

Maybe this tutorial will help. It helps to use a crossover cable for this connection but I believe there are ways around that. The second link shows settings more specific to setting up connection sharing with XP machines.
Internet Connection Sharing - Enable - Windows 7 Forums
Internet Sharing using Cross-Over cable - Windows 7 Forums

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

This is more of a request for guidance than for stating a specific problem so here goes..........
I am planning on purchasing a new computer for my 12 year-old son. I would simply like to share my existing ( cable-connected ) ISP with that new machine when I purchase it. I would also like us to be independent in terms of NOT sharing files or printers. etc. As far as location specifics are concerned, his new computer would be located in the next room over from mine, just on the other side of the wall, if you will. I have been thinking about a wireless configuration, if for nothing else than ease of installation and set-up, etc. I understand from some reading and general research that a router is key in this, of course. My WindowsXP SP2 Control Panel has icons for Wireless Network set-up and the general Network Setup Wizard.
I am attaching a detailed list of my own computer specifics as follows:

Microsoft Security Updates

Answer:Planning to share an Internet connection

You're right, the router is the key component. If you can run a wire, I strongly suggest you do so. A wired network will be more trouble-free than a wireless in almost all situations. It's obviously also much more secure.

If you really want to go wireless, you can still connect your computer wired to the router, since you're right there with it. Also, you want at least one wired connection to the router for configuration anyway. What you'd really need is a wireless adapter for the son's computer and a wireless router in that case.

My computer in my room is connected to the internet via Ethernet cable which leads all the way down to the lounge where our router is. I would like to connect my Xbox 360 in my room to the internet and still be able to use my computer as internet as well without having to unplug from one to the other. I would prefer a wired connection, however wouldnt really like to buy another 30ft long ethernet cable just to connect my xbox all the way downstairs to my router.
How can I share the internet?
 

Answer:How can I share my PC Internet connection with my Xbox 360?

Go wireless... Spend a little on a wireless router and a wireless NIC for your computer. The XBOX should have wireless capability already. Or, you could buy another wired router and set it up in your room. Attach it to the existing internet wire from the lounge and connect the XBOX and your computer to the new router

Hello! This is my first post here. I have a 3G dongle that I use for internet connection. Do you know how I can share from my laptop to other laptop computers? Thanks

Answer:How to share internet connection from a 3G dongle?

With that type of single dongle connection...3G/4G...I don't think you can. They do have what they call "Hot Spot" dongles where your allowed to have up to 5 devices on that single connection.

This is my first post so am looking forward to meeting new people in here. I put this under the 2000 group but thought I might get some help in here too.
Here is my problem:
I have a Win2000 pro machine that connects to a shared printer on a XP Pro box. The XP Pro box is on AD.
You can connect to the printer fine but as soon as you restart or shut down the 2000 machine it drops the printer when it comes back up. The account on the 2000 is a power user but I also tried it from Admin and samething. The firewall on the XP machine is turned off.
Thanks for any help/info.
 

Answer:2000 box drops connection to share on Xp

please do not post the same question twice. This could cause confusion as to what help that has been given to you.

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 am writing this thread in reference to the link below
http://forums.techguy.org/networking/863583-cricket-broadband-internert-sharing-two.html

I was trying desperately to find a way to share my little cricket usb broadband modem with another laptop. I found no good solutions online. So I just goofed off with it for a while and stumbled upon a solution IN VISTA ULTIMATE x64. Here it goes.

Step 1

Goto the computer that will have the modem attached to it and then goto network connections. Right click on the cricket modem connection and choose properties.
Then click on the far right tab called sharing and check the first box
Take note of the IP Address of your wireless/wired network adapter that you are using to network your computers together.


Step 2

Goto the client computer and click on View Computers and Devices under Network and Sharing. You should have an Internet Gateway Device in the list. Right click on it and enable it.

Step 3

On the client computer goto Network and Sharing and click on Manage Network Connections.
Right click on your network device that you are using to network to the other computer, and click properties. Then click on Internet Protocol Version 4 and click Properties.

Change the settings to what applies to you, but follow the guidelines I give below.

NOW I AM PRETTY SURE THAT IS ALL I DID TO GET IT TO WORK. LET ME KNOW IF THESE STEPS DON'T WORK FOR YOU. MAYBE WE CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT I DID IN ADDITION TO THESE STEPS!
 

Answer:How to share your Cricket Broadband Connection

What's wrong with Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) or Step by step Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) setup in Vista?

You can use static IP addresses on the client computers but it is easier and better to just use dynamic addressing.

Hi,
I recently broke my airport antenna on my powerbook, and consequently, cannot connect to my wireless home network. however, my ipaq pda has a wireless connection. both my pda and my broken powerbook have bluetooth. can i share the internet connection via bluetooth? effectively using my pda as a bluetooth wifi connection?
thanks
 

Answer:Share Internet Connection Over Bluetooth?

Short answer: No
PDAs don't have any capability to act as a host for connection sharing.

You CAN get a bluetooth adaptor for a PC that's connected to your net connection either by wireless or ethernet and have it share the net connection via bluetooth.

The simplest thing is goign to be getting the antenae replaced on your Powerbook. One thing you may want to check, I believe in the Powerbooks Bluetooth and Airport share the same antenea. Check with an Apple repair shop to find out and just see how much they'd charge to fix it.

hi,could somebody advise me how to connect laptop runing winxp with desktop comp runing win98 to share internet connection? desktop comp is connected to the internet via modem. i dont know what kind of modem it is but it dials to connect to the broadband internet connection. there is no way to connect comp strait to modem it hasnt got any other ports. so the only way is pair the comps together probably with ethernet cable. i just dont know how to set it up properly cos i know it would be a prob to pair w98 with wxp. has anyone did that and if yes how?

Answer:connect w98 with wxp to share internet connection

Sharing the internet connection with a Windows 98 PC is no different from any other operating system.To create a wired network for Internet access and File/Printer sharing, you have essentially two options:1) Install a Network Adapter in each PC (if not already installed) and connect them directly with a *crossover* CAT5 ethernet cable. ?Internet Connection Sharing? is then enabled on the actual Internet connection in the ?host? PC and the ?client? PC will have Internet access provided the ?host? is running and online. To enable ?Internet Connection Sharing? in Windows XP, open the Network Connections folder, right click the actual internet connection (modem connection), select Properties and then the Advanced tab. Tick the box ?Allow other network users to connect through this computer?s Internet connection?.When you enable "Internet Connection Sharing" on the Internet connection, it automatically configures the network adapter used for your "private network connection" with the IP address 192.168.0.1 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0. If you have more than one adapter available for this purpose, e.g. both a "Local Area Connection" and a "Wireless Network Connection", you will have a drop down list from which to select the appropriate adapter. The TCP/IP settings for the "Client" PC's network adapter (your Windows 98 PC) should be set to get the IP address automatically, which it does by DHCP from the "Host" PC. Also, if you run the Zone Alarm firewall ... Read more

Hey...
I know that 1-way internet via satellite only has download and needs an upload source...If I have a broadband 128k connection (to be used as the upload source) and lets say, a 1mb connection via sat...how can I connect them both at the same time to the router, knowing that the router only has 1 port for the internet cable to be plugged-in?

Any help is much appreciated...
 

Answer:How can I share an Internet Via Sat (1-way) connection on several pcs? (router)

I don't know how you'd use a standard broadband router for this task. My guess is that you'll need to consider either ICS and a host Windows system, or perhaps a Linux rig of some sort. Since you have some sort of broadband, why not just increase the speed of that service and forget about the satellite connection?

Hello ! I got a week ago my Thinkpad T510 with Gobi2000 3g modem. Everything works fine but I got an issue right now.Under Windows 7 I wanted to create ad-hoc WiFi network and share my 3g connection to other PC and Android Phone. On Android there is no listed any WiFi connection.On PC it is visible but I cannot connect to it. I found an application called Connectify but it does not support sharing internet via Gobi2000. Is there any other way to share this 3g connection via WiFi ?Have you tried it already ? Thanks for any answer !hsz

Answer:Share Gobi2000 connection over WiFi

If you have an Intel wireless card I think you can do that with the My WiFi feature.
