Connection problem to Windows 7 share

Question: Connection problem to Windows 7 share

Sorry if there is a thread already for this issue.

I am hosting a large raid-5 array as NAS on a clean install of Windows7 x64. When playing a video stored on the NAS the video freeze often but sporadically. If I ping the hosting computer I consistently see a loss of 7% of total packets. I do the reverse, ping the connecting computer from the machine hosting the NAS I see 0% dropped packets.

I have tried different routers, network cards and ports in the house but all have the same results

Machine specs:
Supermicro MBD-C2SEA-O
E4500
4 GB DDR3
Raid -1 2 x 250 ? Windows 7 x64 installed
Raid -5 8 x 1.5 TB

Preferred Solution: Connection problem to Windows 7 share

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hello all,

I have a small network (35 client machines and 3 servers). My servers are 2 windows 2000 machines, one acting as an SQL database host, and one acting as a web server. I also have a Server 2003 box which acts as my DC, DNS, and DHCP server.

The majority of my workstations are XP. I'm slowly transitioning everyone over to w7 64bit.

I've had some of these machines on the network for months with no problem, but just since Tuesday of last week I've had all of the windows 7 machines suddenly lose their network connections to the DC.

I am unable to ping the DC either by name or by IP address when this happens. If I disable and re-enable the adapter it returns. I've disabled power management on the adapters, with no change.

This happens to every one of the windows 7 machines simultaneously. The XP boxes are unaffected.

I've tried restarting the services on the DC, and fully restarting it as well.

Anyone have any idea? Nothing has changed on the network that I'm aware of.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows 7 intermittent connection problem to windows 2000 share

Well, Tuesday of last week would have been patch Tuesday - if you have your machines configured to install patches from WU or a WSUS server, the patches would likely have been installed. What happens if you take one of those machines back to a restore point before last Tuesday?

I've never had this kind of problem before so I don't know wtf is going on.

I've got my wireless connection that connects to my router and i got my LAN connection that goes from my computer to the X360.

When I try to share the connection, I get some weird Ip conflict or something.

On this same computer, I've made that Xbox-computer connection sharing twice and never had a problem.

Btw, I just changed my router cause my other one stoped working (at least the wireless part). I reseted it but that didn't fix the problem.

My second pc is an ageing 900mhz Athlon which is curently running Win 98SE, and shares the internet with a newer XP machine via a wired netgear router. I'm considering installing Linux instead of Win 98SE on the older pc so I can have a play with it. Will internet connection sharing still be possible??

Answer:Windows pc / Linux pc share internet connection?

I have done exactly the same thing recently and it works well. Actually, I have set up my 700MHz Athlon as dual boot, 98SE and Kubuntu.One thing to be aware of is that browsers will probably be slow with the default settings. This relates to IPv6 settings. A quick Google search will explain what needs to be done to disable IPv6.

We have a Dell Lattitude E5540 running Windows 8.1 Professional connected to an Active Directory domain. The laptop has the latest drivers and BIOS, including the driver for its Dell Wireless 1506 802.11b/g/n (2.4Ghz) adapter.

I use the PC with Windows 2003 as a domain controller and file server. Now, I want to make it share the Internet connection. I've done it before with cable Internet without a problem, but this wicked DSL (never liked it), I just can't configure it correctly.
I use Winpoet to connect to the net and I can connect correctly. I use a ADSL modem (not router) which goes connected to an ethernet adapter.

Using a router is not an option, since I'm not using it to have better control of what people do with Internet at my company.

So how do you share a ADSL connection? Also, my IPs are static.
 

Answer:How to share an ADSL Internet connection with Windows 2003?

You need to have 2 NIC's in the server, then youd have to setup Routing&Remote Access on the server as well.

2003 has DSL support built in, so theres no need for WinPoet...

Id also set the workstations to DHCP and have the server give out IP's, thats less work for you if it does the DHCP

Simple question and I should know the answer but I don't know where to go on my laptop can someone help me out please?

Answer:How can I share my phone's internet connection with my Windows 10 laptop?

First, you have to enable Mobile Sharing on your phone. If you're using a Windows Phone, swipe down from the top of the screen and enable Mobile Hotspot. If you've never used this feature before, take note of the network name and network password.
On your Windows 10 laptop, go into WiFi networks, this is down on the bottom right corner of your PC's screen, the system tray. Click on the WiFi network icon, and find the WiFi network with the network name of your phone. It will ask for a passphrase to log in, that will be the network password. Your laptop will bind to the phone's wifi network and you'll be tethered.
Please note that this may not work if your cellular provider does not permit it, or if they require you to upgrade to a different plan that includes tethering.

As per the picture and title, I have a windows 7 with a wifi card for internet access. I have an XP tower right next to it connected via ethernet cable to the 7. Both XP and 7 are professional editions (64bits).

I want the XP to have internet access like a normal computer through this set up.

Side story to this set up: They're both Dell Poweredge 2900s I acquired that I use as workhorses for processing high volumes of data. They're located in my basement and the router is on the third floor (therefore wifi). They are remotely controlled from the third floor where my office is. This is all home, not for business/ professional.

The poweredges have a 1gig per second ethernet port, and I mean to share lets of data back n forth between them so the ethernet cross-cable is crucial.
Can this be done? Could you walk me through it? I've tried to solve it from different angles without any success so far.

I've tried ICS without success. I think all that came out of that was shared folders between the two PCs. I've tried bridging the WiFi/LAN which disables ICS. Nothing worked so far so I probably missed a step or did something wrong.
Thanks in advance.

Answer:Windows 7 with wifi card connection to share ethernet with XP

What do I have to do so that I can access the internet from the client machines. I googled a lot and found 2 things that I can use ICS or NAT. I cannot use ICS because I'm using domain controllers, DHCP etc. and I tried using NAT but still the client machines could not access the web.Also I started having problems with users loggin in. I'm going crazy, please someone point me in the right direction.

Thanks
 

Answer:Share Internet Connection Using Windows 2003 Server

Why not allow the router to handle the DHCP server function and just put the server on the network as a fixed IP address? I've configured several networks that way, works just fine.

ok, I have this odd problem when I'm at my friends place and we try and browse shares on my computer.

There are certain folders on 1 hard drive on my computer that he can't see all of the files or subfolders in when you go through the normal browsing the network in windows explorer, but if you type in the entire path you can get to the folder and copy everything just fine. We both have "simple sharing" but we have also turned off simple sharing and used a username/password and it still happens.

We currently have a 24 port switch and we have a clarkconnect box for our router/firewall his cable modem. We have tried with and without the clarkconnect box and it still happens.

We both have Windows XP SP2 with the same services turned on/off.

Now when I'm at my place with all of my computers with a clarkconnect box everything works just fine.

Any ideas?

I have a share running on a Windows 2000 Pro machine, and it always asks for a password when someone is trying to access. I have been going with this for 2-3 months, but now its getting annoying. How do I make it stop asking for a password?
 

Answer:Windows Network Share Problem

1. If the machine is in a domain then give the share the propper permissions.

2. If the machine is not a member of a domain and is part of a workgroup all you need to do is create an account on the machine(s) that need access to the share. Make sure the account has the same password on both machines. This will allow for connectivity.

Example:
Computer Name Username Password
ComputerA rusty.shackleford somepassword
ComputerB rusty.shackleford somepassword

Note that both usernames are identical, as are their passwords. On the machine that has the share give the user account rusty.shackleford permission to the folder, lets say that is computer A. When you log in to ComputerB login with the user name and password above and it will allow you to connect to the share without promting for a password. Hope this helps. Good luck!

I have a weird problem with WMP12 (windows 7 home) not being able to share all my media to my PS3. This feature was working fine last year but then hurricane sandy flooded my house and my dlink router got flooded so I had to replace it. I replaced it with the Dlink DIR-655 router.

I want to share some of my movie and music folders to the ps3. The ps3 sees my computer and connects. However the problem is that I can only see 2 movie folders. If I want to share more folders, then the ps3 simply doesn't see it. Also I decided to not share those 2 folders that the ps3 does see, it has no effect. The ps3 still shows those 2 folders as being shared by the WMP12 despite the fact that I am not sharing any folder or media item. I tried adding mp3 files to be shared and it has no effect, ps3 simply doesn't see them. It seems like WMP12 is stuck on sharing only those 2 folders, even when I dont want them shared.

I upgraded the DIR-655 to the newest firmware.

What could be the problem? I have tried everything to no avail.

I've got a strange problem dealing with a 2012 R2 share.  We have a lab with 30 Windows 7 Enterprise workstations.  They all have the same desktop via a GPO applied folder redirection to a share on the above mentioned 2012 R2 server.  All
but 4 of them can connect and pull the desktop with the appropriate shortcuts, network folders, etc.

So the share permissions have no explicit denies.  In an effort to resolve this issue I've added both Everyone and Authenticated Users with Read permissions on top of the appropriate AD Group object that already had Read permissions and of
course SYSTEM and Domain Admins with Full Control.  The NTFS permissions have of course CREATOR OWNER, SYSTEM, and Domain Admins with Full Control.  The appropriate AD Group also has Read permissions.  No explicit NTFS denies either.

Using either the same account that belongs to the appropriate AD Group or my Domain Admin account (which doesn't have the redirected desktop) I can login to all workstations and all but the above mentioned four get the folder redirected desktop.
 When I authenticate with my DA account and try to connect to the share on those four computers I get the same error the user gets:

Network Error
Windows cannot access \\SERVER\Share$
You do not have permission to access \\SERVER\Share$.  Contact your network administrator to request access.

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 two laptops both running Win7 Ultimate and connected wirelessly to a Billion 7404VGO. Each has its documents shared with "everyone". Initially I tried Homegroup but coudn't get that to work so went back to ordinary networking. With router freshly booted each computer can see the other's shares. If I keep working on a share on the other computer I can stay connected, but if I leave off to work on my own computer and come back later the shared files are all inaccessible. That is, each computer can still see the internet OK, but can't access the other's shares. Up comes a Diagnostic box and Win7 helpfully tells me to reboot the router. When I do that it's all OK again, until a few minutes of inactivity when the shares again become inaccessible. The same thing happens to a shared USB printer that's on one computer only - it's only accessible after a fresh router boot.

Any ideas?

I can always ping the win2k machine from a cmd prompt and get a good response. I can sometimes access the shared items however other times a get a box asking for a user/password. When I input what I know to be the pw, it says bad user name pw.

Here is what really perplexes me. When I logoff of the win7 machine and log right back on, I can access the win2k machine without any problem. This lasts for a while and then reverts to the login problem.

One other item. When I logoff of the win7 machine then log back in, the view of the win2k share is changed from "List" to tiles. I can change it back without problems however the next time I do this, it is back to tiles.

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.

is this happening to other people??
 

Answer:vista: Network Share to Local = ~50MB/s | Share to Share = 1MB/s.. Huh?

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,

I need help with a home networking file sharing problem.There are two PCs on the network ? one running Windows 7 and the other running Vista home premium 64.
I?m trying to reconfigure from a public network, requiringpassword protected sharing to a private network without password protectedsharing.

The share I?m having trouble with is my Owner folder on theVista PC. When I access it from the Windows 7 PC I get the following message:

All the other shares I?ve set up work just fine?two USBdrives and an external hard drive.

I have two small offices in different location the far between each other around 5Km each office. What the diagram will be look like of the hardware and layout that you suggest for each location and if there is any choices could you explain why especially for the devices we will use and what brands and do i need a server or network printer if i need where it shuold be. thank you
 

Answer:How Do I Share An Internet Connection?

You want to share an internet connection between two small offices 5Km apart? 5Km as in 3+ miles? Contact your local telecommunication companies and see what they can offer.

I hope you have other reasons for wanting your own private network between these offices as any solution is going to be far more expensive than two internet connections.

Hello all,

Okay hear is the problem that I am faced with... I have a Virgin Mobile MC760 3G broadband device, I want to share that 3G internet connection with my D-Link DIR-615 router so that I can connect to the 3G over WiFi on my other devices.

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.

I don't know if it is possible to do this but any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Is it possible to share a 3G connection through a 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.

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,

Answer:share my adsl connection ...how ???

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

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: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.

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.

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?

I already know the answer to this but I'm hoping there's something out there. Is there ANYWAY POSSIBLE to share a dial up connection through a windows 2000 domain?

Analog router is too much.
 

Answer:dial up share connection??!!

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.

Can I share my internet connection by using a hub? I have a 5-port hub but no instructions on how to use it??? I want to be able to get online with both computers at the same time.
Can someone advise me if the hub will work or do I need something else? I have intermediate computer knowledge but know nothing about networking.

Answer:Share Internet Connection?

You need a broadband router for most broadband accounts.

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.
I want to make it clear that it's NOT a WiFi Internet connection (there're zillions of threads all over the Net how to share it -- I wouldn't be asking it AGAIN here!). Internet connection is still a wired one. It's the... Read more

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?

We will shortly be getting Broadband from Wanadoo. We have a laptop in the house and a desktop in the office (50 metres away). Wireless connections would not be suitable because of thick stone walls. We need to access Broadband from either PC even if the other is switched off. We understand we will need a Router and Ethernet card for the desktop. Can anyone tell us how to connect all this kit together please and has anyone got a reccommendation for type of Router.

In the room where my PC is, I also have my xbox. I do not have a wireless adaptor (yet) for my 360 and the cat cable coming into the room is just long enough to reach the pc. So if I want to go on live, I have to move the xbox near the cable and pull the cable from the back of the pc (which sucks if I need it while on live).

The motherboard that I have has 2 onboard NICs, is it possible to use one for an incoming network connection/to the router and use the other to connect my xbox to provide Internet access to it? How would one go about dong this? Thanks
 

Answer:Is it possible to share my pc's network connection w/ my 360?

Might be better to just pickup a cheap switch, and hook the PC and xbox up to it?

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.

Hi all,I have recently moved to Pipex BB, and thoroughly love it. I am considering utilising two spare machines I have to go online too, I dont want to mess around with hard wiring CAT 5 cables etc...so I was thinking of a wireless netwaork/router. Can an y point me in the right directions for tips and a good guide? Including the best way to setup and what hardware I require. Thanks peeps.

Answer:Broadband...best way to share connection?

You will need a Access Gateway plus a PCI wireless card for each PC. Then just follow the wizard to set up. Its very easy, but expensive in comparison to using a hub and patch cables..

HI All,
We have set up three users in a home network where one person holds all the files on their PC and that folder is shared for access to everyone.  It is a remote location so no need to have it too locked down.  I haven't created a homegroup but can
if that changes things.  the issue is that at the moment two people can open the same file at the same time without any message about the file already being in use - then the rule of "last person to save the file" wins.  Is there any way
- by settings on the PC, or by using homegroup instead, or by using a third party tool - to prevent this from happening?
Thanks,
JJ

Hello

I am currently in a student housing and have an internet connection through a lan cable that comes out of the wall, so i have no access to anything. I just bought a eeepc with windows 7 and have an older laptotp with also windows 7. My old laptop is connected to internet and i would like to share that connection to the other one using wireless without a router. I looked on internet and found out it was possible with some tutorials for xp and vista.

First of all, hello to all and thanks for having this site to help people.

I have glanced around trying to see if my Q has already been answered but am finding myself so technologically challenged (dumb maybe! ) that I don't even understand a lot of the terms being used. So here is my question if anyone can help.

I have Cricket Internet. With this company you buy the little plug-in broadband modem. They want $120+ per modem (although some of their advertisement deceitfully implies you can get a new modem for $34- when I went to buy another one for the second computer we've gotten the guy said "Oh no, it's $120+ for the modem and thirty-four dollars per month to use it." )
So anyway, I was wondering if anyone can tell me how I can have both my computers sharing the Cricket connection while only having one plug-in modem? Somebody said something about a router . . . . .and then it was all Greek to me. We actually have 2 desktops and one old laptop, (almost forgot about it), and ideally I would like to have them all on the Cricket Internet without the expense of buying 2 more modems and having the additional $34 x 2 added to my monthly bill.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Am running NT4 Server as a file server in my office. Currently running a web ramp with 3 USR 56k modems for internet access thru my network switch.

I recently added a WinXP Pro client to my LAN. That client has a Direcway 2-way satellite connection thru the USB port. I unplugged the web ramp and enabled ICS on the XP client. Good news...everyone on the LAN could share the connectdion. Bad news...no one can see the file server. If I disable the direcway connection on the client, the server is visible.

Any way to share the internet connection on the XP Client without interfering with file server access?
