What is this error massage: "Windows-System Error: A duplicate name exists on the network." Why that error is coming.


Are you using XP? I think this is from the netbios service, it means that there is another machine on the network with the same name. It may stop you joining the network.

Just change the name of the computer and reboot.

I don't use XP anymore, but I think you can right-click on 'My Computer' and select properties, then look for computer name.

How to configure wireless internet connection in windows xp


You need to set up the router first and know the name of the router: Also called The SSID.

Example: FIXYA'S ROUTER is a name for a router written by the router's owner and not the manufacturer. NEVER leave the default name (example: lynksys, Netgear, etc) because then everyone would get into your private wirless connection.

Once you set up the secuirty and name (SSID), turn on your laptop.

1) open contol panel and open NETWORK CONNECTIONS
2) right click on the wireless network connection icon
3) using the drop down menu from right clicking, click on PROPERTIES

A window called WIRELSS NTWORK CONNECTION PROPBERTIES will come oup

4) On the top Tabs ( labeled "General, Wireless Networks, and Advance) click on WIRELESS NETWORKS.
5) CLICK on the big button called VIEW WIRELESS NETWORKS

A new window will come up called WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTION

A list of other wireless routers should show up under the words CHOOSE A WIRELESS NETWORK

6) Rememeber the name you typed out for your router in the begining? LOOK AND CLICK ON the name you gave your router (eg: Fixya Router)

If you set a pasword or Wep key for connecting to your router type it in after you click and press ok. If you ddnt set a password or wep key, just click on the nam o router and click ok

You should then see if you could get on the web by opening your intenet explorer. If you followed the instructions well, you will be able to get on the internet.

PLEASE SAVE YOUR SSID (OR ROUTER NAME ) AND PASWORD OR WEP KEY IN A SAFE BUT OBTAINABLE PLACE.

Hope this helps :)

What do they mean when they ask for your router name are they looking for my network name and when the ask for a password are they talking aboutmy security key or my password


by router name they are asking about the router model number not the network name... password is the password of the user account provided for accessing the router...

I have Belkin Ni wireless modem router. I would like to change the name of my network. How do I do this, please. Don't be too technical, please.


It is not hard to change the name of your wireless network. Well, not hard as long as you have the IP addy for the router and you have the log in and pasword if it is pasword protected. Simply put in the router IP address in your Internet Explorer window like a web addy... most times the addy is 192.168.1.1 If your router is pasword protected it will bring up a login window. Put in the login and pasword and you are in. The main page will list all the information on the router including the name of the network, simply change the network name and then save the changes. And presto bango. Hope this helps.

Do you mean you have two d-link Wifi USB adapter? and Do you want to make a network between two PCs? If so , you just need to install the drivers on both PCs and then plug in each PC with your USB Wifi adapter.Then on one PC(Master) go to Control Panel,double click "Wireless Network Setup Wizard",then NEXT,you will require to enter an Network name(SSID), in here I recommand you choose "Manually assign a network key", because the automatically on from system alway very long and must use some file to transfer the config.then set the key ,then next, you can choose "Set up a network manually". After that, go to another PC(slave), double click your wireless connection icon on the task bar at the right side near the system time. the Network name(SSID) which you just set up on that PC will be in the list, if not just click "search" on the left side. double click the Network name(SSID), you will require to type your network key. then ok. You can begin to enjoy your wireless network in your home now! :-)
