Lan Network Problems

Hi, I have a problem between a Desktop and Laptop. Sometimes if my Laptop's WiFi isn't working, meaning finding any Networks I hook it up to my dads Desktop through a LAN Cable. His Desktop is a 2007 HP Pavilion a133On running Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition, My laptop is a IBM ThinkPad T40 running Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic. He still uses Dial-Up and Like I said if my network isn't working right I hook it up to the Desktop. It was working fine last month, and all I had to do was plug the LAN cable in and I was connected. Now When I plug it in today, My laptop detects the Desktop but the Desktop don't detect my Laptop. On the Desktop it shows the LAN Connection with a yellow ! icon saying "Limited or no connectivity" and on my laptop the icon just shows two computer monitors saying "Unidentified network" If I was connected it would show a Earth Ball icon that is letting me know I'm on the internet.
I don't know if it has something to do with Windows XP Service Pack 3 or not because Last month it worked and Service Pack 2 was on it. But on my old desktop I use to have, had Service Pack 3 and I connected my laptop and it worked fine.

    XP SP 3 updates some networking sharing system LAN files that cause some configurations to become unaccessable on the workgrouped networks. We cannot - even ping - the network addresses after installing - so it was an uninstall and do a system restore to get to the original good working state of the clients.



    Microsoft needs to come up with a patch to fix this as we are seeing more and more networked clients having these connection and sharing problems.

    I have 2 networks that I connect to with VPN. After installing XP service pack 3, I can still establish both VPN connections but on one, I can no longer use RDP over the connection. On the other, I can still use RDP but the ability to browse folders on the network has been lost. Instead it prompts for login info and the entering correct credentials just causes the prompt to reappear. Prior to installing service pack 3 everything worked fine.

Well, actually... it might help to turn the router off and then on again. Sometimes power-cycling the router can reset it, which might need to be done. I'm a big fan of the power-cycle; it works for all sorts of obscure problems.

Once the router is on again, use the laptop and adapter to check for wireless networks. If you still can't find a network, disconnect the ethernet cable from the back of the desktop computer, and try the wireless adapter with the desktop PC. If it works, the problem is with the laptop (possibly a power supply problem). If it doesn't work, the problem is either the adapter or the router.

Ideally you should then try your adapter with a friend's router. Eventually you will discover whether the router is playing up or whether the adapter is faulty.

In my (admittedly still limited) experience, connection problems are rarely about faulty equipment and more usually about incorrect settings, so it might also be worth running the New Connection Wizard from Network Connections in the Control Panel.

Good luck!
