Does the network eventually show up or is there an error?

When connecting to a network, especially a large network or a network with a lot of shared files and folders, My Network Places will take a while to open because it searches the network for all shared items and all connected equipment. Just give it time, and it will either show you your network, or give you an error.

What will i do my computer always disconnected from the network


is it set up on a home network or is it an internet network ?
if people cant see your computer id say it was a home network

it might be a problem with the power and data leads either breaking down / faulty or bad connections

or it might be the firewall settings

Double-click the "My Computer" icon on the desktop.

This opens the Explorer window.


Navigate to the folder you wish to share.

Right-click the folder and select "Properties." Click the "Sharing" tab.


This is where you configure the folder for network sharing and set permissions for users to access the directory.

Click the "Share" button.


This opens a window with a list of users configured on the network.

Add the groups and users who are allowed to have access to the folder, by highlighting the name and clicking the "Add" button.


When you've added all the users, click the "Share" button.

Click the "Advanced Settings" button.


This opens a configuration window where you can give the folder name an alias.

This hides the real name of the folder and shows the alias to users when they browse the computer for open shares.


Type a friendly name into the textbox and press the "Ok" button.

Click "Ok" in the main share properties window.

The settings are saved and take effect immediately.


hope this helps

How To Speeding Up Network Browsing


There are a lot of things which can negatively impact how fast XP will browse network shares.
One has been previously covered regarding browsing to Win9x computers.
Other things you can try, especially when there is slow browsing to network shares with a lot of files:
1. Remove current shortcuts in My Network Places
2. Change the registry so shared folders on remote computers are not automatically added to My Network Places when you even open a document from that shared folder
  1. Start Regedit
  2. Create a DWORD value:
  3. HKEY_Current_User \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer \ NoRecentDocsNetHood to 1.
  4. I have also seen setting the following help as well.
    HKEY_Current_User \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer \ UseDesktopIniCache to 1.

3. Increase the amount of data is buffered at one time to send to a client. On the computer with the shared directory:
  1. Start Regedit
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
  3. Create a DWORD Key called SizReqBuf
  4. Give it a value of Hex FFFF

Upgrade windows vista ultimate ................ some setup are not working then insert red wire..are working with foxpro.and vista ultimate i slowdowned at my network place with home vista


Vista is typically slow and needs some tweeks to accelerate performance. To do this you have to go to System properties and then advanced tab. In advanced tab under Performance, click settings and then under visual effects click adjust for best performance and reboot the machine. You will not get GUI features of Vista.

How to use or install windows xp uploader to use in uploading photos in friendster?


Hi,

This is a multi-stage process ... it takes some effort to get it working but it is worth it in the end

first, on Friendster's Upload Photos page, click the link for the "Windows XP Uploader Wizard" to download and install the registry file that enables the "XP Publishing Wizard" ... just click on "Open" in the Download Complete dialog or double click the xppubwiz.reg file ... now when you open My Computer and select your photo you will see a new option in the left-hand pane under "File and Folder Tasks" entitled "Publish this file to the Web" ... click on that to launch the Web Publishing Wizard

click Next and it will give you the opportunity to "Change Your File Selection" by checking and unchecking the corresponding boxes, but since the file you selected is already checked we can skip that ... now the wizard wants to know where you want to publish the file ... the first time you use the wizard you will probably only have one choice: "MSN Groups" ... if you have a Windows Live or .NET Passport ID you can use that; otherwise the wizard will help you create one ... so select "MSN Groups", then click Next and select a folder where you want your photo to be published

now, the whole reason we are going through this agonizing procedure is that your photo is too big to upload directly, so the wizard complains about the file size ... no problem, click Next and then Next again and the wizard asks if you want to resize the file ... check the Yes box and select whichever file size you like ... click Next again and the wizard will compress and upload your photo ... with any luck you will see that your upload was successful, so click Next and the wizard will inform you that you have successfully published your file and that a shortcut has been added to "My Network Places" ... so click Finish

but we are still only half way there ... now, open your Friendster page, go to the Upload Photos page and click on "Browse Files" just like normal ... remember that shortcut that was added in "My Network Places"? navigate to Desktop, then "My Network Places", then follow the long chain down to the folder where you published your photo ... double click your file and you are back at Friendster and you can click "Start Upload" ... mission accomplished

and now we get the pay off for all your hard work ... the next time you use the wizard to upload a large file, in addition to "MSN Groups", the wizard will offer you the "Friendster Bulk Upload" ... select that, click Next, enter your Friendster login info and select the album you want your photo to appear in ... now when the wizard has resized your photo it will be uploaded directly to the album you selected!!

one more bit of house-keeping ... you can still use your MSN Group folder to upload your photos to other sites, but you only have 3 MB for your files unless you buy extra space ... so you may have to delete some old files to make room for new ones

hope this helps, Please rate my response! Thanks!!
