Make 2 pc's see each other


This is a common issue with XP and later versions of windows. Check that both computers are in the same workgroup.
On XP right-click My Computer, select properties, go to the Computer Name tab and check the workgroup name.
On Win7 right-click My Computer, select Properties, click Advanced System Settings, go to the Computer Name tab and check the workgroup name.
If the workgroup name is the same on both machines but neither come up in My Network Places then try changing the workgroup name to something else on both machines and restarting them, this usually clears up that issue.
If they still don't show up check that you have Network Location Awareness and File And Printer Sharing turned on on both machines.
On Win7 this is checked under Network and Sharing Center, Change Advanced Sharing Options. Make sure that Turn On Network Discovery and Turn On File And Printer Sharing is marked for the current profile (Home or Work, normally).
On XP go to Network Connections, right-click the connection for your LAN and select Properties, make sure that File And Printer Sharing For Microsoft Networks is checked. Then, go to Administrative Tools, Services and make sure that the Network Location Awareness service is running.
Both machines may need to be restarted after this, but that should fix the issue. If not, please let me know.

Describe your LG k170 signal problem Problem


Instructions
  1. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep1 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.1-800X800.jpg'); }); Make sure you have run the Network Setup Wizard on each of your computers, even if you have configured it manually. Your file and printer sharing are disabled until you run the wizard at least once.
  2. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep2 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.2-800X800.jpg'); }); If the problem is that some of your computers appear in My Network Places or View Work group Computers, while others do not, wait about 20 minutes or so and then check again. If all computers still do not appear, and you have older versions of Windows running, like Windows 9x or Me on your network, restart the Windows XP computers, wait for about 3 to 4 minutes then start up your older computers. Wait for a few minutes then check again. If that does not work try booting your computers in various orders.
  3. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.3-800X800.jpg'); }); On each of your computers, click Start, My Computer, select My Network Places, and then select View Network Connections Look for the Local Area Network Icon. See if the Icon says "disconnected". If the answer is yes then you have a problem with your cables or your network adapter. Repair before proceeding.
  4. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep4 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.4-800X800.jpg'); }); Now, look to see if any of your Local Area Connection Icons say "Firewalled" next to them. If you find this problem then Your Windows Connection Firewall might be blocking printer and file sharing on that computer. Go to your Firewall Protection and make the needed changes.
  5. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep5 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.5-800X800.jpg'); }); Another thing to try is to go to start and right click on My Computer and choose Properties. View the computer Name tab. Each of your computers should have a different name and the same work group name on it. If they do not have different names then you will have to change them. Restart your computers you adjusted and see if this made a difference.
  6. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep6 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.6-800X800.jpg'); }); You can also try something else by going to each computer and click Start, All Programs, Accessories and then Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig and then press Enter. Under the Local Area Command Prompt entry, Windows should show you a different address for each of your computers. If any of your computers have the same address or if the addresses are not similar, then you will need to repair this before proceeding.
  7. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep7 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.7-800X800.jpg'); }); In the same Prompt Window as above and from only one computer, use the ping command to see if that computer can communicate with each of your other computers. To do this, type x.x.x.x in the Command Prompt Window. You are substituting the actual I.P address of your other computers for x.x.x.x in turn. You should be seeing several Reply from lines each time you do this. If any computer does not respond, then you have a cable or hardware problem. Repair this first then proceed with further tests.
  8. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep8 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.8-800X800.jpg'); }); Make sure that all of your computers have the same network protocols.
  9. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep9 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.9-800X800.jpg'); }); If you still are having trouble with your Windows Network you may have to call in a professional or a computer experienced friend to help you.

How to share one utp connection into two


Hi,

for 10/100 connections you can do this (look on eBay for "Lan Splitter cable"). This is because for lower rate Ethernet there are spare pairs of wires in the cable. If you intend to run 1GBps then it needs all of the pairs in the cable and you will not be able to use the splitter.

The better solution would be to either use a switch in the room to break out the one cable you already have, or to run a parallel cable. As you may need extra LAN connections in the room in the future, the switch is generally the best method.

If this helps, please leave feedback - if not let me know and 'll try and help some more

I have switch and i want to connect switch to pc with rj45.and i want to share internet my pc to other pc. what to do?


You can use internet connection sharing found in windows OS's, this enables other pc's to use the internet through another pc. If you have 2 ethernet ports on the main pc, you can also bridge the connection together, that will do the same thing. I hope this helps!

Network


Well if you are asking how it should be crimped, PC to PC regularly, if it is not a smart port LAN then you have to use a cross-over cat 5 cable. but it won't really matter if you have smart ports. for the PC to switch connection, same principle applies, but if they have smart ports, that the type of LAN cables should not matter.

Hope this helps.

Difrence of lan wan


The Lan limit on unshielded twisted pair cable (UTP) is 300 ft for a local area network (lan). The cable uses the 802.3 Of course if fiber is used in a LAN then this # can be extended substantially.

Now the main difference between the LAN and Wide Area Network (WAN) is that LANs typically have 1 brodacast domain and froward packets at data link (layer 2 of the OSI) level using MAC addresses.

The WAN operates at the network level (layer 3 of the OSI). WANs are and reads IP addresses. Routers can extend far distances (as you said 40-60km) and band with depends on distance. the further away, the more attenuation on the line.

I hope this helps.
