First thing to do is make sure they are all in the same workgroup and that all three have identical user accounts and passwords.

Once you've done that, make sure all of them have sharing enabled for the areas you want to share of each drive.

This should do it. Let us know if you need further assistance.

Brother i have just opened a wireless network but my wireless network is not working properly. Can u plz contact me for some help i shall be very thank full to you if u do this favour for me. Thanks...


Troubleshooting issues with wireless connectivity can be tricky. There are a bevy of potential causes for drops in the connection, slow-downs in throughput and sporadic signal loss. As such, it's best to take a shotgun approach, throwing a number of possible fixes at the problem and hoping one sticks.

Check if your laptop's wireless switch or button is turn on - look around the laptop in front, back or sides. Sometimes you might touch to turn off accidently and you don't know. Many laptops have the wireless light indicator, check if the wireless light is on and blinking.

Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the wireless, which is to control the wireless connection of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, touchpad etc. You will need to hold down the Fn + F8 combination keys together, in this example the Toshiba laptop's wireless setting.

    Check Network connections; make sure the laptop connection is not 'disabled'. It should has the gray color if it's disabled. Right click on it and enable it.

    If none of the above works, you will need to enable the Wireless Zero Configuration in services.msc (type this in from Run command), or you can see it this way: Right click My Computer -> Manage -> Services and Applications -> Services.

    Prospector60,

    Hello and Thank You for visiting fixya.com

    You might be experiencing a hardware issue but first have you tried the following steps?


    1. Take out the battery
    2. Unplug the unit from the power

    Then plug back in the unit and try the switch again?

    Have you check your bios to make sure the options for the adapter and switch are enabled.

    Its rare but it could be a hardware issue with the switch. You might get creative and open up the laptop and unplug the wireless card from its slot then plug it back in. But be careful and do that at your own risk. If its under warranty have Asus look at it!

    Thanks for using fixya.com I hope you find these Very Helpful!

    Cannot the wireless internet setup


    Hi kschmerer,

    I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
    To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.

    You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.

    Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.

    If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.

    To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.

    This should fix the issue.

    Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

    You can try these things if haven't yet. Make sure the adapter is turned on. Find out if your wireless router is putting out a signal. In My Network Places network tasks run Windows setup wireless network wizard. In Network Connections right click the wireless adapter and see if it is enabled.

    That laptop has a known issue with the wireless network card not being recoginzed by windows. You can verify this by going into the device manager and seeing if the wireless network card is in there, more then likely it won't be.

    Best option is to call HP Tech support and ask them about that known issue and see if your laptop can be covered by there recall. You have so much time before the recall won't cover your laptop.

    Here is there tech support number: 800-474-6836

    They are open 24/7

    I remember that HP computers or laptops have a 1 year warranty unless you get an extended one and recalls can last up to about a year after the warranty expires, call and see if they can get your laptop covered under the recall.

    Unable to get Wireless to turn on


    Sandy,
    What was the earlier problem?
    Do you think it is/was/might be related?
    How did you get past the issue? If you formated, you have to go through "Software Setup" find it at Start, All Programs, Software Setup. (tc1000) or if you restored with the factory discs (tc1100) then it should be done. If a tech "restored" your tablet with other than the factory restore discs, then Q menu may be impaired or nonfunctional.
    Is the card actually there?
    Are the cables connected?
    Is the card the original hp card? Some others will not work with the Q Menu.
    Go to hp.com, navigate to the tc1100 support page and download all drivers or recent updated drivers.
    Install the updates and you should be fixed.
    HP will sell you restore discs for $10.72 (thats what I paid last fall) that will install the correct drivers for the unit. Cheap at twice the price. You will need a keyboard (USB generic will work if you don't have the original detachable) and an optical drive (USB CD Drive) basically to do this.
    My friendly local tech is at $50 for basic service, and if you can back up to another PC (cat 5 cable connection is fastest) or a card, then a reformat never hurts a thing, kills many troubles too!
    Best Luck, Blaino
