I can not conect to my network.wifi is connected.


Getting connected to wifi is one thing; the network is another. I assume you are running Windows of some sort or another. First question is - can you access the Internet? If so, you ARE on the network, but you may not be in the WORKGROUP or HOMEGROUP that the other machines in your network are associated with. Windows XP and earlier machines used a default workgroup title of MSHOME; later versions of Windows defaulted to WORKGROUP. Unless you change them all the same, the devices will not be able to see each other on the network. You also have to enable file and printer sharing if you want to be able to access files from other machines on your network. If you can supply a little more info on what you want to do and what OS versions you are running, we can help more.

Not Sharing pc for win 7


It may be because of the workgroup setting. WINXP uses a default workgroup value of MSHOME. WIN7 uses a default of WORKGROUP. What happens then is that all computers can connect to the network and access the internet, but shared files and folders will not be seen due to the two different workgroups,

To change the workgroup in WIN 7:

Click START.

Right click on COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES.

In the SYSTEM window, choose ADVANCED SYSTEM SETTINGS

in the SYSTEM PROPERTIES window choose the COMPUTER NAME tab.

Observe "Workgroup" name.
To change, click the CHANGE button

Put the new workgroup name in the WORKGROUP block
(WINXP default is MSHOME)

Click OK

Close all windows

You will need to restart PC to set the new workgroup

There is no room to enter a domain.


Hi,
I'm assuming that the operating system is XP.

Log in to your account as you usually would. Right click on My Computer and select Properties from the list. Click on the Computer Name tab. Where it says "To rename this computer or join a domain" click on change. A new window will pop up so click on Workgroup. In the typing plane if it say's MSHOME, delete that and type WORKGROUP make sure you type it in uppercase (capital letters).
When you've done that click OK.
The computer will tell you that you have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect so please restart the computer.

Once the computer has restarted you can check if the domain has changed to WORKGROUP.

Please post back if you need anymore help.

Regards.

File Sharing


Hi,

Here’s a very short summary of how to create a home network:

1) Create a named Workgroup (computer network name).
In Windows, the defaults are MSHOME or WORKGROUP, but you can choose your own

2) Add computers to the named Workgroup

3) Enable file and/or printer sharing.


Here are some resources to help you:

1. Windows XP has a wizard to walk you through it - see tutorial here

2. For Vista, try this link for a detailed overview: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727037.aspx

These links might help too:
http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-create-a-pc-network-workgroup.html

http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/connect-to-and-share-files-with-other-pcs-on-your-.html

3. When it comes to sharing folders, there are two main ways to do this. You can either 1) right click the folder and enable sharing through the shortcut menu., or 2) add the file/folder to ‘Shared Documents’ (for XP) or ‘Public Folder’ (for Vista).

Hope this helps, but please come back to Fixya if you have any difficulties. Good luck!

Home network problem.


In order to resolve this concern just disable or configure your firewall and anti virus to allow the file sharing between those 2 computers and after that ping each computer if its replying but still cannot see the shared documents, do a power cycle turn off everything for 30 seconds and power them back after 30 seconds and that should make everything work....

Don't forget to rate the soluiton FIXYA thank you......

I'm having a problem get an acer veriton to network in with my other computers i can see it in the workgroup computers but not in network places


Make sure the workgroup name matches for all your computers. The other computers are probably set to mshome and the acer to workgroup.

Setting up my HOME network! HELP!!!


Sounds like something is not right with the sharing... Assuming that computer 1 (the computer with the printer) is sharing and everything is set correctly, I would change the workgroup name. Instead of using "MSHOME" use say some basic word like "example" or some other name.

Ironically for my workgroup here I call it "StarWars"

needless to say my printers and everything shares just perfect. When you use "MShome" there's restrictions on what XP professional and XP home machines see on the network. I changed the workgroup name and that solved that problem.

Be sure to put all computers on the same workgroup name that you pick. You can even choose your first name if you want.

you can connect two pcs together by way of RJ45 cable to the network cards, its called adhoc, you use a crossover cable and set up networking using the network wizard, but you cannot transfer programmes as when they are installed they are put in different parts of the registry, so it cannot be copied over, although you can copy and paste or share any files. Make sure they are both on the same network, right click on my computer icon, properties, computer name tab and look at workgroup, make sure both pcs are named either mshome or workgroup, to change the name click to rename this computer click change.
