Credentials required to transfer document over network

Question: Credentials required to transfer document over network

I'm trying to move a document from my laptop to my desktop via my home network. But lately, I'm getting a window that asks for my account name and password to perform this transfer. It didn't before. I did switch routers recently, though. Still, I'm entering the password for my account name correctly, I think, but the password isn't accepted. How do I fix this problem? Is there a laptop networking setting that lets me bypass this step? I don't get the same window when I move documents from my desktop to the laptop. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Credentials required to transfer document over network

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Credentials required to transfer document over network

How are you entering your account name and password? Are you using a Microsoft account on either computer (or both?), are you using your Microsoft account email as the username? What is the name of the folder you are in when you open a command prompt? That is the real "username" of your account.

We have a number of users where, when they change their network password, their Outlook will start prompting for the username and password.  This will happen every day until credential manager is cleared out. Then things go back to normal, until the
user has to change their password again.  It seems that once this problem happens this user will always have this problem.  The users are frustrated and is very vocal about how IT can't seem to fix the problem.  Any idea how to fix this permanently? 
Articles I have read say this is a known issue and there isn't a fix.  Office 2013 is the version.

A month ago a friend ("Cookie" -- and the name fits!) gave me a nice older machine with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 (2.33GHz), 3GB RAM (expandable to 8GB), 485GB hard drive (most of it free space), and a Windows 10 install that was upgraded from Vista last year. It is now upgraded to Win 10 15063.138, the Creators Update (I updated two days ago).

The upgrade was problem free. I'd now like to convert Cookie's registration to my Microsoft registration; alas, Cookie does not remember her userid or password. She gave me two passwords to try and two userids, but no combination works.

The computer is nice, clean, and quiet. I'd like to keep Win 10 on it, so what should my next step be?

Answer:Transfer Win 10 Credentials

I would do a clean install of Win 10, you will not need a registration key since Win 10 is already registered.

Hello,
Anyone having problems with Windows 10 asking for credential verification multiple times? I can get this multiple times a day. I also tried deleting all the credentials related to my account & it appeared to work temporarily & then went back to having credential problems again.. I believe it's something server side because I can verify & then sometimes immediately you are asked to verify again or few minutes/hours later it asks again.
When I look at my account online, sometimes it will show multiple "Surface" computers with the same S/N or with no S/N (Now this doesn't always happen)
I also notice with my email accounts (While using the native Win10 email app) it will state my account is out of date & it will no longer send/receive emails. This happens on 2 MS accounts & 1 gmail account. I have actually reinstalled Win10 & the problem has only gotten worse. Before it used to only happen maybe once every few days.
When Win10 needs verification again, sometimes the store apps will won't open until you verify again. All regular desktop apps continue to work just fine during this process. Also, updates to Win10 & the store apps may stop updating if it's not verified once again.
Microsoft doesn't seem to know how to fix it or aren't telling anyone that they are working on fixing it...Because when I've posted the problem on their forums, other people state they have the same problem, but no Microsoft person can give a remedy that works.

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.

Could anyone please tell me what I need to enter for "Network Credentials" to access these shared folders on I7PC from I7HASWELL?
I have password-protected sharing OFF but I am still asked for account name and password.
I7PC has only one account, I enter the account name and password, but they are not accepted.
(I also tried entering the one and only account details on I7HASWELL, but that did not work either. I didn't think this was the correct thing to do anyway!)

This issue arose after upgrading I7HASWELL from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
I7PC is still running Windows 8.1.
All shares worked without issue when both PCs were running Windows 8.1.

Answer:Network Credentials

These things can be very frustrating, speaking from experience! Win 10 is more fussy with credentials, for sure.

Looking at that Security popup it does look like you got the NAS name in there. compname\userid is the username required. In your case, I7PC\Aileen.

If you click the Remember my credentials box, it should store these credentials. Ctrl-panel\Credential Manager\Windows Credentials will show these. You can add and edit them there as well.

Just confirm you have followed these guidelines for a start.

Edit:- fixed error in username.

For the entire time that windows has supported networking, with a few brief exceptions, I have had nothing but trouble with accessing other computers on the network. I have suffered decades of ?access denied? and ?you don?t have permission.? I have set ?allow anyone to do anything?, and Turned off ?password protected everything? dozens of times over the years. MS?s latest irritation is ?network credentials.? I never set any network credentials. I have no idea what they are or where to find them. Is there a checkbox somewhere to choose ?stop hassling me about anything and everything?? I will take the risk. I do not use a password to log on to my computer and I don?t want to either. Can I not network at all unless I use a password to log in to windows? Appreciate your help.

Answer:Network Credentials

Hi wildttrout

Network Credentials are your log in (sign in) passwords, to the account you are logging on too on the device.

If your user accounts don't have passwords, local accounts without passwords, you should just be able to hit enter.

If you don't want to use log in passwords as an alternative you could set up a homegroup, yes it will have password, and then join your machines to that homegroup.

Hi,
I have a desktop and a netbook set up on a homegroup. They both are able to share files, folders and printers just fine. However I do also have a laptop that is connected to the same homegroup and is unable to share anything. When I try to access any other computer in "Network" it asks me to put in a password that I was unaware I had (See Picture). No computers are locked, or passworded. I have tried the original homegroup password, and my network password both with no success. Please help, any assistance is appreciated!

Steven

are all the machines win 7 or is the network mixed OS? Homegroup uses IPv6 and that sometimes has connectivity issues. You can verify that is the problem by creating a new network connection using "workgroup" not homegroup. If it works you can then disable IPv6 and kill homegroup.

Added benefit workgroup uses the older password setup which is easier.

I am using Win 7 Pro 64bit on a 2003 SBS. Everything has been working fine for the last three months, but this week, the computer keeps forgetting my network login credentials. I log in to the Win 7 machine user and domain as usual with my network login and password and everything is fine for 2 or 3 hours, then suddenly I dont have access to drives that are mapped to the server drives. I get a dialog box saying that the drive is not accessible.

I can get to my server drives by going through the network icon below my mapped drives in File Manager, but it askes me to reenter my login and password. Then I can get to my server drives, but sometimes the mapped drives will respond to this and sometimes they won't. It seem like half the time I have to remap the drives to get access, the other half of the time I can use them immediatly. This is becomming a real pain in the butt, I am having to do this 2 or 3 times a day.

I should also add that everything is wired on gigabit eithernet.

Answer:Network Credentials Getting Lost

I should add to the above what may be a related matter, is that for the past few weeks, when I connected to my server drives, the display of the file list has been really slow. It would often take 20 seconds or so to list 30 or 40 files. On my XP machine which is on the desk behind me, the server connection is fine and the files display almost immediatly. The 7 machine, which is a much faster machine than the XP machine, has never been as fast listing directory contents as the XP, but it has always been pretty close. Now it is agonizingly painful to watch that Win 7 green bar creep across the top of the file manager window.

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the group. I have an interesting network problem. I'll try to be brief. I have four computers running Windows 10, 7 and XP Pro networked that use a common workgroup. Everything was working fine for months until just recently the computer running Windows 10 all of a sudden asks me to enter a Network username and password. All computers see each other and are accessible except now all of a sudden the Windows 10 machine asks for network credentials. None of my machines have any passwords set anywhere. They are all in my home. No new hardware or software was added. Of course I went into the Windows 10 machine and double checked the permissions and everything looks OK. Can anyone help me with this problem?

Can I ask, are you using homegroup to share files on other machines?

Are you using user names and passwords on other machine, like Owner or Patrick, password xxxxxxxxx. This would be when you sign in or awaken from sleep.

Hi,
Hopefully someone can help with this query that after days of trying myself and hours of google searches I can?t solve.

I have a home network:
2 windows 8.1 machines
2 windows 7 machines
D-link NAS ? 2 Volumes
Sign on?s are all Local account

All used to connect successfully to the NAS for backup until about two weeks ago then the mappings to the volumes failed and every time I try to map or connect I get a Windows Security box requiring me to ?Enter Network Credentials? and my file history requires me to re enter credentials.

I have tried:
Machine user name and password
NAS username and password in straight and \\NASname\Username format
IP address and Volume reference and every combination I canthink of

But to no avail the security box just bounces back and i try again....

I have tried various combinations of on/off in the advanced Network and Internet options, resetting the NAS etc.

Sometimes I get the ?Enter Network Credentials? message when addressing the NAS - sometimes I can expand the NAS and then get the message when I try to address the Volumes. Sometimes I get a different message about not having the permission to map the drive instead of the network credentials one ? the frustrating thing is the variability in error or message that makes it even more difficult to solve the problem.

i have tried lots of forums and whilst there are people with similar issues none of the solutions that some have found work for me.

Thanks

Answer:Network Credentials & NAS mapping

Go back to the NAS and double check user settings. That they are setup correct, along with the shares are correct for the users. Also that it is on the same workgroup (keep both the computers and the NAS set for "Workgroup").

Then make sure Network Discovery is enabled on the computers.

I started with a network consisting of a Win 8.1 and a Mac OSX 10.9 connected in a workgroup. At that point I was able to access the Mac from the Win PC without any login. Subsequently I added a Win 7 PC to the workgroup. Now when I try to access the Mac, Win 8.1 gives me a panel asking for my login credentials. I have been to the Credentials Manager and set the credentials for the Mac. However, when I try to enter the log on and password that I specified in the Credentials Manager, I receive a "password incorrect" message. I would prefer to have no log on at all the way I was to able to access the Mac previously.

Answer:Win 8.1 Network Credentials Not Recognized

This is a Mac OS issue. It is because of Samba why you are getting that issue with the Mac. Also if IPTables is screwed up on the Mac, or Firewall is enabled, you will have issues.

https://www.apple.com/support/ has a networking forum, along with info to fix this problem with Mac OS.

I have a couple of drives mapped as Network drives to my W7 Pro laptop. One of the network drives is on an XP machine the other is a NAS.

Everytime I access the XP drive I am asked for username & password even though everytime I enter it I tick the "Remember my credentials" box.

Is there something else I need to do in order for W7 to stop prompting me ?

Hi and welcome
Might be something in gpedit preventing it. Were the shares created in another OS, IE vista?

Hi, All I want to do is use the built in MS backup to back up a fresh install of Win7 to my network drive.I have three computers all running Win7 Ultimate 64bit, my HTPC is the one with all the Harddrives and it is where I put all my backups etc. I have full read write access from all computers to the F: drive where I want to put the backup. All of the sharing center options are set to public folders avaliable to all with network access, and password protected sharing is off, also none of the computer require a password to log onto them, they have user names no passwords.The router is secure enough, with passwords and IP limited etc as i dont want each computer to have a password.The problem is then - Why cant i use MS backup, to back up this computer and save the backup over the network to my HTPC without credentials of some sort?Thanks in advance

Answer:credentials needed to backup over the network

Pretty sure you need to access shares by a user that has also a password unless you have service pack 1 or below on xp. I didn't say create a new user, I meant to say that a user with a password is needed.NTbackup needs a windows type of setup. You can't use nfs easily or at all that I know of. I doubt you could get ftp to work so you are kind of stuck with a windows share.guess you could go to the MS site for ways to use ntbackup over a network. I'd still think that command net use would still need a password. Dunno, maybe you could create a webdave folder. It is a windows deal and might work.I just use a user that has a password. 1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Hi,

I'm trying to add a network printer (shared from a Server) from a computer running Windows Vista Home Premium. The user must authenticate using different credentials, but I cannot find a way to force Vista to connect with different credentials.

In Windows 7 it is easy, I just add an entry in the credentials manager and everything works, I can connect to the server, access all the shares the user has access to, and add the printer.

In Windows Vista, I cannot do this. If I try to add a network credential in the "Stored User Names and Passwords", I can only add a "A Web site or program credential". The "A Windows logon credential" option is grayed out.

When I try to access the share from Windows Explorer, I get an access denied. Instead of having Windows popping up an authentication dialog it just tries using the credentials of the currently logged on user, which is not what I want.

If I try to add the printer using Add Printer Wizard -> Add a Network Printer, when I enter the path to the printer, I also get an access denied instead of having Windows popping up an authentication dialog.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Im working in windows xp and trying to connect to one of our servers in a different domain with an account that i have in that domina, yet everytime i try to map it, i get an error stating:


Code:
The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password.
To connect using a different user name and password, first disconnect any existing mappings to this network share.
I then press enter...


Code:
the mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred:
Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not
allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again.
Now, I am in no way connected to the server and even after a reboot cannot get in still.
Im running SP2, but this error came up in SP1 also.

Thanks for your help guys if you can..

Answer:Mapping Network Drives with different credentials

Are you using fast user switching? If so, there could be another user logged in with the drives mapped. Also, are you sharing a username and password, either the one you are currently logged into XP with, or the account in the other domain? If so, that could be causing a problem as well. As noted, running the net use command could shed some light on the subject.

Hopefully some of the networking experts on here can help me with what's probably a simple, straightforward problem, but it's starting to really annoy me now as I've spent three evenings searching for and trying numerous solutions but still have the problem?

I have a Windows 7 desktop pc and a Windows 8.1 laptop. The problem is that I can't get a reliable connection between them to enable transfer of files, and it's only one-way when it *does* actually work. I'm not using a Homegroup, but just sharing various folders.

Perhaps I should mention here that the laptop used to have Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit on it and connection between it and the Win 7 pc were fine, in both directions - the change to Win 8 wasn't an upgrade but a clean install on a spare hard drive. So I'm thinking it's something to do with Win 8, but I'm not an expert in networking so I could be wrong ;-)?

Anyway, I have *never* been able to get the Win 7 pc to connect to the Win 8 laptop, as every time I try I'm being asked for a username and password - I have no idea what these would be as I have never set them up, and when I installed Win 8 (it upgraded to 8.1 a week or two ago) I opted to not use a Microsoft login. However, my account name (which is the Administrator account) and Windows passwords are the same on both machines.

From the Win 8 laptop I *can* connect to the Win 7 pc, but it?s odd - if I go into Windows Explorer on the Win 8 laptop I can see all of the files in the shared folders on t... Read more

Answer:Network shares asking for login credentials

However, my account name (which is the Administrator account) and Windows passwords are the same on both machines.



It sounds like you be using the same User name on both of these machines from what you said here? Not sure but you can't use the same User name on both machines, they need to both be different. You might also want to check that the time/date settings on those two machines are exactly the same.

This problem can be one of about a million different things but generally speaking setting up sharing between these two machines should be about the easiest thing you can do with them.

There are tutorials for this all over the internet as well.

I have a home network with win7 pc's - a mix of home and pro. I used to be able to connect to all the computers across the network OK. but recently, one win7 home pc has become recalcitrant, refusing to allow other pc's on the network to log on to it. it keeps asking for credentials (user/password), but rejects what I know are the correct credentials and throws the "use another account" box on the screen. I know they're the correct user and password because I can log on and off the pc locally.

I gotta be doing something wrong, but heck if I know what it is. perhaps someone in the big brain-trust here knows?

Answer:win7 pc won't accept credentials across network

Be sure that the User "name" you are using is correct. If you changed it since building the computer.

I ran into a problem when I renamed my wife's computer to "Karen" (when I setup the computer I named it "user1"). So when I see her computer on the network it says Karen, but the credentials for network access are still looking for "user1". Run "net user" at a command prompt to see what the system thinks is the User name.

Hi, I'm setting up a new Windows 10 Home Premium PC and I have it connected to my router with an Ethernet cable.

I have my old Windows 7 machine also connected to the router with a cable.

When I try to access the Win7 PC from the Win10 PC, I'm asked to Enter network credentials. It won't accept the usernames and passwords I've tried.

I found this thread that may have the answer but I didn't understand how to implement the solution: Network Credentials

Previously, an IT guy told me to use the same ID and password for all machines on my network to avoid problems like I'm having (as may be mentioned in the above referenced thread) but I don't understand how one identifies between the different computers on the network when they have the same names.

Assistance to allow me to use my new Windows 10 machine on my network would be greatly appreciated.

Hey guys,

My name is Ryan I am the Admin at a company with a small (40 terminal) network. Currently the network is on a workgroup running windows XP Pro on all machines. We have a NAS (N4100+ Thecus) on the network with protected folders (the authetication is done by the NAS, as that is where the users and protected folders are created and managed). The NAS shows up as NT 4.9 Server and all the folders that aren't password protected are readily accessible. The first time I attempt to login to a protected folder (having not logged in to ANY protected folders at all on the network) the login works fine. But if I go to a different protected folder under a different user I am prompted for the login credentials (which i type in correctly) but it then tells me I do not have permission to view this folder. When I type in the first protected folder path it doesn't ask me for login credetials and just lets me in. I am wondering where in XP does it store the login and password info for internal network IP's login so I can delete any saved credentials.

Thanks

Ryan

Hey guys, im looking for some help with network drives. I am currently running win7 ultimate and am trying to share 2 drives: One HDD for movies and the other is a virtual BD-ROM drive. Problem is, i want to set it up so that the users on the network can have their own username and password to log in without having to create new local accounts for each one.

SO, question is: Can i do it? and if yes, how?

Thanks for any help.

Answer:Network Drive Credentials without local accounts

Yes there is a way to do it, but you have to create local accounts. These accounts can be hidden from the login screen. See this technet. If you do not wish to create local accounts, there are other alternatives. Have you thought of setting up your own NAS server? You can buy one online or build your own (I think building your own is more fun), and it is better to have a dedicated machine for file sharing because you don't have to have your laptop/computer on all the time

Hi all,
 
Newbie here.  I have a dual-boot machine, one partition running MS-Windows while the other partition runs GNU/Linux Debian. The network at my end is something like this -
 
ISP --Modem __Computer 1
                    |__Computer 2
 
Sorry for the attempt at that clumsy diagram. It is an ADSL connection if that makes any change. The system was working perfectly last few days in the sense that networking was working properly, as late as till last week.
 
The modem has the ISP credentials so I don't have to do anything but simply put in the eternet/lan 10 mbps port and I can access the 512 kbps Internet.
 
Now on Windows something changed, on booting to Debian it works so I know it is not a hardware issue but rather some sort of software issue. I had been updating microsoft security essentials in the hope it would be scanning actively for any viruses or trojans.  I had also been updating the updates via windowsupdate . Now either one of the updates or some program installation has messed up the networking and for the life of me don't know which. Even Updates are not helpful as I haven't been able to see a view which tells which update was on which date or something like that so I could try to revert it and see if that fixes.

My machine won't boot up unless I disconnect all of the Hard Drives. I still have my two SSD's (RAID 1) that have Windows 7 Professional installed still running fine.

I had one hard drive ST4000NM0023 (4TB) fail (had four of them), and so I replaced two of them with ST10000NM0096 (10TB) drives.

After hooking up via the internal/external HD converter Device Manager "sees it" but I can't visualize nor access the drive via My Computer. I then tried hooking it to my ribbon cable after removing my HD and initially I thought it would work since the Windows 3.1 Intro screen flashed up very acceptably. However, after Windows 3.1 finally loaded all the graphic content was pushed to the top and I can't "see what I need to see". I tried to fool around with a jumper connector but no luck so far.

Answer:Yet another W10 network credentials junk thread.. but plain talk !

It is a security thing. When the Credential Manager asks you to input the username it expects the pcname and the username of the computer being accessed like this:- PCname\username. Next it wants that user's password.

If the affected user won't give you this info then one could assume they don't want you to have access thus nullifying the share. You would then, presumably, need to create a 'public' user to hold the shared folders. Or a Dropbox share?

The weird thing is that if I just go the the Win-7 Network and Sharing Center applet, the machine and shared folder that I want to map to the Win-7 machine show up just fine, and I can access files in the shared folder with no problems whatsoever. And I don't get asked for log-in credentials at all. The user name and password are identical on both machines.

And I can map shares to the XP box from the Win-7 box with no problems, and without any request for log-in credentials.

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).

Hi All, this problem is driving me to

I have a user (Windows 10 Home) who works both in and out of the office on her Laptop.

We have a website that we use to handle all of our client files on a remote server. It only works on IE due to ActiveX controls it uses to open saved files on the computer.

When she opens a Word doc from this site at home or a public network (Starbucks etc), it opens up with no problems.

When she tries to open the exact same file while in the office on our internal network she gets prompted for network credentials.

Now here's the kicker: it doesn't matter what we do with the credentials, if we enter her correct credentials, or enter "Bobby" Pw [email protected] or press cancel, it still allows the doc to open.

She is the only person who gets this (we have over 300 local and remote users) and per reports has been getting this since she had Windows 7, through Windows 8/8.1 to Windows 10.

For most users I'd just say suck it up since it's a personal computer, but this is the CEO's wife and a VP in the Company in her own right, so...

Any ideas you can give, I'd be happy to try. I haven't even been able to find this problem replicated anywhere else.

Solutions we've tried include:
-Site is added to Trusted sites
-Actually signing in with username and pw and "saving credentials"

Answer:credentials prompt on internet website only when on internal network.

Grab her laptop and do an inspection on it to see if she has made any changes. Also Tragic X can be blocked by certain routers. It should never be used for files. Traveling users should be using Office 365 or connecting back with a VPN that is not blocked by their home network.

It may include going to have someone look at her router/gateway or using TeamViewer if you use it for remote connections and look at the settings in her Gateway.

I have recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. My existing network "went away", and now I am unable to exchange the files on any of the three computers. I do not know which system is being referred to when the credentials are asked for, only that the credentials are required for access.

Hey there.

Let me get straight to the point. I've been using Windows's built-in system imaging tool to backup my drives for a few years now, alongside File History. Recently, I've (finally ) bought a router with a USB port, so that I could start making these backups over the network, instead of having an external drive permanently connected to my PC. I started with File History, and got it working easily. The problem arose when trying to setup the system images to be saved to the network drive.

The network drive works flawlessly with File History, and I also didn't have any problems mapping it as a network drive in This PC. However, when I try to use it as a drive to save the system image on, I get asked to input a Username and a Password.

The problem is, the drive is not password protected, so there's nothing for me to input there, but Windows won't let me continue unless I input them both. I've tried using various combinations of my account credentials, the router's administration credentials, and various other tips I've found online, but no combination was correct.

So I'm asking, is there even a way to save a system image on an unprotected drive in Windows 10 (because I know it WAS possible in Windows 7), or do I have to use a 3rd party tool to do so? Thanks in advance.

Answer:System Image - Unprotected network drive needs credentials

You are not making real backups with File History. It even states that on Microsoft's website. If you want real backups, you need to use third party backup software.

As for the username and password, it needs that to access your drive on your router if it uses FTP and SMB.

When I rebooted, I received the normal windows logon screen, user name & password, entered those and logged in. The problem being, all resources on the network required me to enter network credentials. For example, try and double click on file server get following 'Windows Security' window:
Enter network credentials. Enter your credentials to connect to: SERVER.

Answer:Network Credentials issue, win 8.1 client & Server 2008 AD

According to Paul Thurrott you need to add the credentials by going into the Windows vault per method #2 in the link below. If you don't add the credentials to the vault then Windows won't remember them despite checking the box to remember credentials.

He is using Windows server 08 and Homegroups with Windows 8 and he shows both methods to access network shares on the server.

BUT of course I am asked for credentials when trying to access the other computer's shared folders and of course I don't understand....I have looked at all the threads on this but I still don't get it...

B Is it asking it asking for my username and password on my computer ? This computer. Like it doesn't know who is logged on to this computer ? My user and my password ? Are those credentials passed to the other computers in any way or are they kept safe on here ?

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

Please lock this computer, then unlock it using your most recent password or smart card. Please clock to see more information.

When we do this the problem doesn’t go away and that message appears every time we try to print to a network printer or open a shared drive.

This sounds really noobie of me but is it possible to improve local network transfer speed by adding a 2nd network card. I was planning to connect one exclusively for lan transfers and another one hooked to a separate wireless router.

Right now only a maximum of 3 users can stream SD videos off the PC before it gets a little choppy.

The pc in question runs on windows 7 and it's board has built in gigabit, I happen to have a spare gigabit card.

Answer:Will adding a 2nd network card improve local network transfer speed

That won't really help the way you are describing the problem, although adding access points will help with streaming to wireless devices.

Although there is a setting in Group Policy that allows you to use two connections at the same time, I don't believe it will help in this situation.

I've done many HD movie streaming tests on my system.

I can stream from my media PC to at least 7 other machines at the same time, 4 wired, 3 wireless, plus my TV, and have no problems at all, no skipping, no freezing, even with the same movie in the same place or with 8 different movies at once, my TV is connected to my media center PC so counts as the 8th one.

This is Gb LAN, and 300Mbps wireless but even the 65Mbps limited laptop has no problem.

I'm not really sure why you are seeing these limitations but it may be the router.

Ok, I have 5 computers on a home network, 4 Windows XP and one Redhat Linux Fedora Core 4. About a month ago, one of the windows boxes suddenly went from about 550Kb/s download to 100Kb/s download from various newsgroups. Also, when trying to pull AND push files to that same box, it is a very slow file transfer.

I didn't load any new software in that time and I waited so long because at the time, the newsgroup server that I am using reported problems associated with Hurricane Rita. This of course doesn't explain the network speed.

I've run speed tests on all the other computers, and they all report download speeds of about 550Kb/s and upload speeds of about 45Kb/s except the one, and it has download speeds of about 100Kb/s and upload speeds the same, about 45Kb/s.

After I noticed the speed reduction, I loaded a firewall, ** Protowall ** and I downloaded the latest beta of Microsoft Anti-Spyware and ran it. Also, I have Norton with the latest updates and it reports no problems.

Please, let me know if you need more info or if someone had any general tips to try. I am about at the end of my rope and reformatting looks like the only other option to me.

Thanks!

Mike in Ohio

Edit: Forgot to say, I went to 3 differnt speed testing web sites, and they all report the download speed the same on that one box, about 100Kb/s and the others are around 500Kb/s
 

Answer:1 computer on a network suddenly now has slow file transfer on internet and network

Are all the computers wired similarly? All run to the same router/switch?

You should check the cable of the problematic machine, try using ping to the router with 1400 byte packets. Also, boot up some CD Linux or equivalent and see what speeds you get from there - helps to rule out any problems with the operating system.

I have a network problem, and it may be a bit hard to explain my situation fully, but I'll try to cover the pertinent information. Basically, when I do anything network intensive, like a file transfer, the file transfer will work, but it will kill all other network activities. I can't browse the web or IM during this time as Firefox will say that it's timed out and IM will drop off and disconnect.

The network setup I'm using is hard to explain fully, but the basic core of it is a router with an access point linked via WDS. The router provides wifi through the house, and also connects to the AP with WDS (@ full 54g signal). The AP basically just gives me hardwired Ethernet ports for my equipment (which is in a location where it would be very difficult to hardwire). Both the router and AP are running the latest "tomato" aftermarket firmware FWIW.

Almost all of my transfers involve going from wired to wireless. I tested my transfer speed during several file transfers and got just a tad over ~3MB/s (~24mbit/s), which seems ok to me since it's going from wired to wireless g. If I do a transfer over ethernet to ethernet (no wireless), it does not seem to cause the problem.

Basically it seems like the router is not dividing up wireless bandwidth as it should. It seems to be only allowing the one transfer to use the wireless at any given time. Is there a setting that might help me? I was thinking maybe a QOS setting might help, ... Read more

I am trying to transfer about 80gb of movie files to a usb network hardrive hooked up to my Netgear WNDR3700 dual band router. I have windows 7 ultimate. I have my pc hard wired (gigabit) to the router temporarily to do the transfer but i'm only getting 3.3 MB/s. What gives? I thought I would at least get a lot faster than that? Is the usb network harddrive on the router limiting it to be this slow. I could've swore that usb transfered faster than that.


Any ideas?
 

Answer:Slow gigabit network transfer to usb network harddrive

3.3MB/s = ~330Mbps
USB2.0 = ~480Mbps

include overhead from both the TCP/IP and USB protocols, and the fact that you will never get a full 480Mbps out of USB, and the number is pretty close.

edit: damnit, I'm a tard. 3.3MB/s = 30.3Mbps. How did I do that?

so connect the USB drive directly to your computer and copy a large file; what kind of transfer speed do you get then?

Hi,
I have run up against an issue where I'm not sure whether things are working as designed. I have a home network - not a homegroup - that is composed of three machines, two running Windows 7 SP1 and one running Windows 8.1.

I login on the Windows 7 desktop and click on Network in Internet Explorer. I then choose to open the Windows 7 laptop, which presents two two network folders - one for all Users and the other for the one user on the machine, who is Abby.

The security settings for the User folder lists -
Everyone
System
Administrators (Abby-PC\Administrators)
Users (Abby-PC\Users)
All have full control with the exception of Users (Abby-PC\Users) which has read and execute.

The security settings for the Abby folder lists -
Everyone
System
Abby (Abby-PC\Abby)
Administrators (Abby-PC\Administrators).
All have full control. In addition, the Abby folder checks the box to include inheritable permissions.

When I open the Abby folder, I find that I have read only access to its documents. I am unable to either edit, create, or delete individual files.

When I open the User folder, however, and navigate to Abby's documents, I find that I have full access and can edit, create, and delete individual files.

I am at a loss to explain why I am restricted when I open Abby's folder and what accounts for the discrepancy between the two.

Any suggestions would be appreciated,
