Do you have a device on the network rounning as DHCP? if so,
go to
start>> run
type in "ipconfig/release"
when you get a prompt, type in "ipconfig/renew"
try to pin the other computer.
if not, then you need a router or modem can act as DHCP.

2 routers. Can i have two routers within the same workgroup. My wireless router will not work from one end of the house to the other. I need to have more than one wireless transmitter so my laptop will...


Hi,

Yes you can have the setup in your workgroup in multiple ways.

Solution1:-
The logic will be making your new wireless router to act as a wireless booster which will receive the signal from your old wireless Router and then retransmits the signal.But this needs some extra configuration on your new wireless router

1. You have to select the WDS ( wireless Distribution System) mode in the new wireless router.
2. Set the same SSID on the new wireless router.
3. In the new wireless router config page , search for the wireless signals and select your old router from that list.

The WDS mode tells the new wireless router to send/receive the wireless signal to the old wireless router.

Solution 2:-

Connect your old wireless router LAN interface to a network switch through a CAT5e UTP cable and the new wireless router to another port of the switch (use a cable which can be extended to the other room where you want the new wireless router to be placed).

Configure the same SSID you have set in the old wireless router.

Best Regards

Windows xp - workgroup is not accessible.


I am not sure of everything that has happened such as spyware or adware and virus issues however one thing that you might tryt is scanning for such. Malwarebytes antimalware is free and so is adaware personal and avg and avast antiviruses to make sure it is not a malware issue.

Also make sure that someone has not been changing the network worgroup that the computers are on. Users can do this inadvertantly and cause many issues.

Computer has no ip address after I restored it please help daughter is riving me crazy.


First thing you want to do, is to make sure all the network cables are plugged into the correct devices such as your router, modem and the computer. if all is running well (everything is blinking with lights) go to your computer, open the control panel, select network connections and open it. Right click on the Local Area Connection and right click on it and select repair. Wait for about 2 mins. After that restart your PC. Try to get on the internet. If you are still not able too, you will need to go to the command prompt, you can do this by selecting start then run, type in 'cmd' and enter. You will see a windows that pops open, it should see somthing like c:\Documents and settings\john> or somthing like this. type in 'ipconfig /all' you will hopfully see a ip address and alot of other information. the ones you will need to look at is to see if your dhcp is enabled if it is then this will give you a auto ip address if it is not, you will need to get a static address from your isp. You will try to see if you can communicate with the IP address by typing in 'ping ' then the ip address. for example 'ping 192.168.1.23' if you have not packets lost, then that is a good thing. then try to ping your gateway, this will be your router ip address. you can find this ip 'Default Gateway' if you are able to ping this, you should be able to go online fine. 570081d.tif

If you are still not able to fix this please let me know and i will be more then happy to help. keiffertech@techie.com

Switched to workgroup for my lenovo laptop - now can log in


are you loging in onto the network? if so you'll need the network user account name and logon

if you know the logon name and password make sure your logging in to the computer user profile not the networked one.

typically the user name is Administrator. 2 accounts are created admin and guest, though most the time Guest is not activated.

if your really outa luck Try a program called Ophcrack :]
either use it as a bootup disk or run it google it sourceforge!

AXIS CD TOWERS


Hi,

I am assuming that you are referring to the tower (desktop) as the server while the laptop is the client. While the client can access the server's CD drive, you can not ping the server. A couple of ideas:
1. verify that both server and client belong to the same Workgroup;
2. verify that both server and client have the same Subnet Mask and that their satic IP adds are near each other;
3. Server's firewall settings/configurations does not allow/prevents ping response; and/or
4. the server might be using Zonelab, McAfee Firewall, Microsoft ICF SP2 or some other form of port blocking.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I am sorry, but this is not really my area of expertise. You could try Ekse or Benimur who are good at networking.

You do not have to rate this post, as I did not really provide a solution.

Good luck!

Network connectivity problem...


Most likely issue is no common server on the network to specify which computer has what IP address and associate that with a name. Bob's computer gets a different IP address each time he turns it on, and the same happens with Sally. But Joe's always seems to get the same IP, so everybody can always find Joe. Specifying static IP addresses on all computers is a beginning to solving this, then I would edit the hosts file on each computer to specify that Bob is at IP x.x.x.x, and Sally is x.x.x.x, and Joe is x.x.x.x, copy this hosts file to all computers, and edit it when new computers are added. Another solution would be to get a Windows Server that is doing both the DHCP (Assigning Addresses) and DNS (A computer program running on a server, translating names into IP addresses), all computers will ask the DNS server where Bob is, and get a response from an internal server that says bob is x.x.x.x
The issue you are having is the number one reason to get away from a peer-to-peer network.

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.
