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.

Is the wifi enabled, can you see any wifi networks? If not, make sure wifi is enabled, if there is button on laptop to disable/enable wifi connections, swich wifi on.

Check from control panel -> network (network and sharing center in Vista/Win7) -> change adapter settings. If wireless lan adapter disabled (grayed out).

I have an Acer aspirer 5516 and it wont make a wireless connection


Dear User,

Please make sure if there is phycial switch to put WIFI on a short-cut key like Fn+F3 on the keyboard.
Once you do either of this, the LAN icon near computer date will show sign of a sun for a few seconds and the automatically connect (or you have to provide a network password).

If this does not work you have to then check if WIFI is disabled on the laptop. Go to start> connect to / network & settings > and open the networks window, here LAN/ WLAN / other internet connections will be shown, right click on the WLAN logo and select enable if it is disabled.

Still if this does not work, it means something is wrong with the OS, the PC needs a format.

Multiple networks appear after reboot on lan desktop. OS is Vista Home Premium 32 bit with DIR615 router. I have to disable and enable lan network in order to get rid of the Unidentified network and enable...


the reason could be the networks scanned by your wireless card when it starts up. What you could do is go to select your preferred netwrok and bring it to the top of the list . ( In the wireless configuration utiity ).

No wireless network in range. My wireless network is set to automatic but I am getting the message above when I search for wireless networks. I know there are at least three here.


If you are so sure of three wireless networks in range then it could be the HW problem in the laptop. Is the green light indicating WiFi lighting on? May be your WiFi switch is non functional. So switch on the WiFi and then look for LAN. Login and not searching a LAN are two different problems. If you cant search the wire less LAN then how can you log into any. So it has to be HW problem as you cant locate any although there are three available. So start at the WiFI switch.

So i have my desktop set up online, but i want to get my laptop hooked up as well and i have a router. how do i hook that up to?


On the right bottom corner of your screen, you should see a message/icon about wireless networks.

Select the icon and you should see a list of wireless networks. Select your network, add your password (if you set up a password) and you should be connected.

Open your browser.

Hope this helps.

Remove preferred networks and connect the the wireless network again. Sometimes your computer will remember the previous network that you tried connecting to.

Wireless lan


The unit will turn power on for the WiFi when you attempt to use Mail or the NetFront browser.  When the WiFi is active there will be a little green light in the bottom left corner of the unit.
For WiFi to work, you will have to setup the security key to connect to secure WiFi networks.  These settings are entered into the NetFront browser Network preferences.
