This is a very specific problem that requires a site visit to solve, there are many factors that can effect the transmission of data over a run of that length. There are many solutions to this problem, they range from rerouting the cable run to avoid sources of interference to selecting another medium such as WLAN or IrLAN. The specific implementation of the solution must be custom tailored to the situation, sometimes the solution requires equipment that is readily available on a store shevle and sometimes the solution must be engineered to accommodate the needs.

I would recommend looking at the cable route to see if it runs past any major interference makers (copiers/large office machines, industrial equipment, power equipment). Then look at the possibility of an intermediate repeater/router (protected location and availability of power outlets). Another possibility is a wireless technology, the specific technology depends on many factors. If you need high speeds or large data transfer, perhaps an Ir (Infra-red) link or WiMAX (802.16) would be best. If general purpose network connectivity is needed, then a standard 802.11 a/g WLAN will suffice. I recommend that you contact a local networking firm for a detailed consultation. Another resource that might be a better fit for most small budgets will be to contact the local college/university that has a well defined IT program to solicit members of the Alumni in a networking degree field.

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.

What is Diferance Switch Or Hub


A hub is basicly a connection splitter that transmits ALL data recieved to ALL computers connected to it. Only the computer identified as the "correct reciever" recieves the information that is brodcast, all other computers discard the information as garbage.a Hub will increase network traffic with more computers connected to it

A switch does the same job splitting a signal to multiple computers, but rather than sending ALL information to ALL computers, it will send the information Only to the correct computer. A switch will use less network traffic, sending only the information to the correct computer rather than "broadcasting" information to every computer on the network.

How to configure Remote access/VPN server role (using windows as my operating system)?


You can configure a server that allows remote users to access resources on your private network over dial-up or virtual private network (VPN) connections. This type of server is called a remote access/VPN server. Remote access/VPN servers can also provide network address translation (NAT). With NAT, the computers on your private network can share a single connection to the Internet. You can find a step by step guide here:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc736357(WS.10).aspx

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

Hi raji767. You left out a few important details such as which operating system you are using and if the WiFi signal you are trying to connect to is encrypted. I will try to give the best step by step instructions I can based on the info you gave. I am assuming you are using either Windows XP or Vista. First, make sure the wireless is turned on. There is a button on the side by the headphone jack which turns the wireless on and off.
WINDOWS XP: Click Start, Control Panel. On the left side of the control panel window you should see "switch to classic view" or "switch to category view". To make it easy, make sure you are in classic view. Next double click the icon labeled "Network Connections". Next, right click on the "Wireless Network Connection" and select "View Available Wireless Networks". In this window you should see the network you are trying to connect to. Next just select the network and click connect. NOTE: If the network is encrypted, you will need to enter the key after pressing connect.
VISTA: First, go to "Start Menu", "Control Panel", "Network and Internet". Next, go to "Network and Sharing Center" and select "Connect to a network". Choose "Show All" and hit the refresh button. Now just select the network you want to connect to and click connect.
NOTE: If the network is encrypted, you will need to enter the key after pressing connect.
Hope this helps. If you have any questions just let me know. Good Luck!
