Network issue


This is an unusual error. Error Code 1236 - The network connection was aborted by the local system.

There is no single issue that causes this error code, so we need to verify all of the networking basics are covered and working.

1. Verify the IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway are fully entered and / or populated by the DHCP server. Click START, then RUN, type in CMD then click the OK button. Type IPCONFIG /ALL - verify the three fields all have valid info for your network.

2. Verify you can see the local network - including other computers and network devices. This will rule out the possibliity that this computer cannot see any network devices and not just the shared folders

3. Log the user out and have another user that can access the shared folders log into this comptuer and try to access the shares. The user profile could be corrupted and preventing the user from accessing the shared folders. IF the new user cannot access the shared folders, then it is the PC / OS causing the issue. IF they can access the shared folders, backup the original user's data, delete their profile and have them log in again to create a new profile.

It is always recommended to upgrade Windows XP to Service Pack 3 - unless you have a very specific program that will not run on SP3.

Many a times you must have come across a weird error message while using wireless connection on the computer with Vista operating system.

This error message generally appears when the existing wireless settings on your network have been modified or removed. You may either revert the wireless settings on your wireless router or access point or configure the concerned Vista computer to match the new wireless settings. Follow the below steps to configure the settings on the computer:

1. Click START, Click Control Panel then click classic view in left hand side
2. In the main screen, open up NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER.
3. In the left hand side menu open up MANAGE WIRELESS NETWORKS.
4. If you see any name in the list, please select the name and click remove.
5. Once the list is empty, click on ADD, select the first option, ADD A NETWORK THAT IS IN RANGE OF THE COMPUTER.
6. click on your network name SSID and click on connect. If you have a Password setup on the router enter the security key.
7. This should setup the wireless network.

To know about the security key or passphrase on your NETGEAR ROUTER'S please visit the below tip:

For any other make of the router, please contact technical support of the concerned router.

How can i set up a connection to a network with windows vista basic

There are several ways to do this you can use a router, wireless router or set up a direct connection. With a router all you have to do is connect your modem to the router and computers to the router. For a wireless connection you need a wireless card installed in your computer and a wireless router. You connect your modem to your router and set up your wireless connection with the software that came with your card or through windows wireless service. You can also connect two computers through their ethernet port with an ethernet cord. You plug coonect them with the cord go into control panel open network connections and to the left chose set up home or small office network. You will need to configure the computer with internet access as the host and the other as a guest. You can share any type of connection such as dial up, cable, dsl, and broadband.

Can't ping Default Gateway (XP) From Windows 7

Make sure you are receiving a proper IP address from the DHCP server....If you run a cmd prompt (windows icon, type cmd and hit eneter, then ipconfig) you should see a 192.168.0.x address. If not, go to the control panel, network connections, manage network connections, and be sure that TCP/IP (V4) is set as auto-configure....

If you are sharing the connection through an XP computer, you will need to run the Internet and connection sharing Wizard on the XP computer, and transfger the settings on a disk to the Windows 7 PC. A simpler solution (assuming you are on a cable/dsl connection would to be to go to your local big box store and buy an Internet/Firewall router. It would also increase your security.

Please check our network connection advance properties and make sure that the proper services are enable "File Sharing", "Network Sharing". Once you have done this reboot. Next you will need to check on the vista machine the security settings of the windows firewall. It's likely you will need to reduce the level of protection and allow the network protocols.

Sharing of internet connection

You need to purchase a router and two network cables to connect the computers. If your computers do not have ethernet connections then you need a wireless router and two wireless network adapters for the computer. II recommend the Linksys W300N or similar for the router and the Linksys WUSB300N or similar for the network card. There are very simple set up instruction with the router and cards.

Connecting to my network

Sometimes networking problems are fixed by restarting the computers and other devices that work within the network (such as a router).

If the network is enabled by a router check the firewall settings on each computer. (Especially if those new computers have antivirus/firewall software from a different vendor). If the router has its firewall enabled also check those settings.

Internet connection sharing

To share an internet connection, you need to have two network connections, one for the internet connection, and another for your network.

If your DSL has a USB connection, plug it into one of your computers and then then go through the network setup wizard, from there it will walk you through sharing an internet connection.  

If all the computers have wireless, you can set up an adhoc network, and share the connection that way.

Honestly, the easiest method would be to go out and buy a router.

File sharing between windows 2000 and XP

1) I believe that Windows XP is not setup for that by default,
you may need to install the old BETBUI service.

2) Also, if the 2000 machine has a login password installed,
it will NOT allow any other machine to browse it, without
logging in.

3) Password-less file sharing over NETBUI was available
on the consumer side of windows:

Windows 3.11 for Work groups
Windows 95, 98 and Millenium.

The professional versions of windows, built on NT
technology require a login:

Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP,
and now Vista.

4) The best work around is to login to the 2000 machine when
it prompts you for a password, using your regular USER ID

If the 2000 machine is not setup with a secure login,
just create a new account, ranking power user or higher.

5) Note that you only need to login over the network ONCE,
because windows XP can REMEMBER your password,
and login automatically the next time.

6) Make sure that the firewall (or A firewall) is not
blocking access to either machine, just disable the
firewalls for testing.

Similarly, if your LAN is behind a residential router, using
the router as a smart hub or switch, make sure that
the routers MAC address access blocking is disabled,
until you get everything setup and tested.

7) Finally if a PC is not visible in a work group, this does not
mean that it is not accessible. This is a Windows quirk.

You can try to access another computer by using the
default/administrative shares. These shares cannot be
disabled in XP, at least they will not stay disabled, as
they will restart during every reboot, whether you like it
or not.

This means that you can ALWAYS access all the drives
on another machine, whether you share them or not, unless
you take extreme measures in the local policies.

To access drive "E:" on a computer called "Henry" on a
machine in the same work-group,

open up windows explorer, and tyr the following into the
address line:


This should access drive E:, after some delay, and possibly
a login prompt, even though drive is is NOT marked as

Down you just love windows ?!
Security by obscurity ?!
Microsoft is getting very good at hanging massive steel doors
on paper walls.

Hope this solves your problem, or gets around it.
