Cannot Network printers on FIOS system

I was using Verizon DSL with my desktop (Vista) wired to the router and my laptop (XP) networked to choose any of three printers connected to my desktop. We recently changed to Verizon FIOS and they installed a wireless router in the other room. Both computers connect wireless to the internet OK. I cannot get the Home network to allow each computer to see each other. I have reinstalled the Home Network but still nothing.

    Both computers use the wireless router and I have both set to printer and file sharing. I have also tried turning off the firewall on both and still no connection.

    I do not know how to try a ping to the other computer.

  • greenwell252 Mar 07, 2009

    With both computers firewall off, I tried ping from both computers and both time out with no response from the other one.

If both computers are connected to the router. Try turning off the firewall on both computers first. normally its firewalls blocking file and printer sharing that block the connection.

    Computer 1.

    Click start then run then type in CMD then click ok in the black window type in

    IPCONFIG then hit ENTER Copy down your IP address



    Computer 2.

    Click start then run then type in CMD then click ok

    Type in PING IPADDRESS then hit Enter. Do you get replies or request timed out.





    Reverse the instructions and get the IP for computer 2 and ping from computer 1

    Then that means that there is still some other firewall on the computer. Or another option is uninstall the firewall. Sometimes with the firewall off it still runs in the background this is especially true of Norton

I have Windows 8 and have not been able to connect to the internet.


There are several possible reasons to have a connection fail. You could have a driver issue, the network adapter may have failed, the passkey/SSID aren't correct (for wireless connections) or the router/WAN network is down. (The WAN being disconnected happens with my systems at regular intervals.) If the router/access point has been secured to limit the number of devices on the network or only allow certain MAC addresses, use a different device to log in to that router and increase the number of allowed devices. (This will depend on the make/model of your router. It's probably under the Advanced settings.)

What type of hardware are you using (laptop/desktop/tablet)? What make and model is it? If you have both wired and wireless network adapters, try making a new network with the other adapter. Also try to create a new network connection for the current adapter.

You can check for driver issues from the desktop clicking the Windows key + X (on systems with keyboards) and choosing the Control Panel. Then under System and Security (or Hardware and Sound) choose the Device Manager. Scroll down to the Network Adapters and expand that section by clicking on the plus sign. If there is a triangle with an exclamation point or a red x, then you have a driver issue. Use another machine to download the drivers and place them on a USB drive or other external media. Install the drivers. (If you can use a different network adapter, then just download and install the drivers.) Try the network trouble-shooter to identify a problem.

If updating the drivers doesn't work, check if other devices do connect to your network. If another device works, try a USB network adapter (or for a desktop, a PCI/PCI-e network card). You may need to disable the on-board network adapter in the BIOS. (This is hardware dependent again.) If other devices can't access the network, try directly connecting a wired network to your DSL, FIOS, or cable modem. If the direct connection doesn't work, then contact your provider. If the direct connection works, try a new router/access point.

I hope this helps.

(note: on an older XP laptop with only USB 1.0 ports, I recommend replacing the device, instead of a USB network adapter. The USB port speed will make the network connection excessively slow.)

Windows Networking Issue


FIOS and DSL use different modems and or gateway devices. Sounds like you were using a DSL gateway device with networking setup and when you moved to FIOS, the tech did not duplicate your network on your new FIOS gateway. OR you had a 3rd party router e.g. Linksys that was removed from the setup when FIOS was installed.
Either way, Verizon is who you should contact. Just tell them your network went down after you moved from DSL to FIOS. Dont mention Microsoft or Livewebtv.

Installed XP Pro and system doesn't recognize network adapter


Hi,
Whenever you format a laptop, you always need to install the drivers for the chipset, audio, graphics, wifi, LAN etc
Click on this link and, from the drop down menu, choose pronet81266 for wifi and the LAN one at the bottom:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html
Install the chipset and the audio too. The one on the list that says ati is for your graphics card.

How do i build a local area network in windows xp?


On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at smichael@phoenixschool.net and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!

Cannot connect to the internet with my laptop


To connect to the router wirelessly using a Windows XP, right click on the wireless network connection icon on the lower right corner of the screen and choose view available wireless networks. Select your existing network and click on the connect button. If you are using Vista, go to network and sharing center of your control panel then select connect to a network. If you still having problems, please provide details of the problem like your Internet service provider and if there are already other computers online with your WRT54G2.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
