Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

Wireless Networking Hey my problem is this, a laptop and a pc both using vista home premium. modem and a linksys wireless router. in getting them to share folders the laptop is able to see the pc but will not connect. while the pc doesn't see the laptop at all and both are using their own built in wireless cards I changed vista's firewall settings in administrative tools, cause i realised that even when the firewall is turned off in vista, the os still has default settings that they adhere to so you have to change them there. HELP

Hey,, the reason why your pc cannot see the laptop or vice versa is cause you dont have public domain or file sharing enabled .. to to the follow these

1.) Click start then control panel
2.) Under NETWORK and INTERNET select set up file sharing
3.) On the task Bar select Set up a connection or network

follow the onscreen instruction to create a network and remember to leave it as public or allow Lan users to view your files..

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer


By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

Use Crossloop. Each session is encrypted and doesn't require turning off firewalls in your routers. You will have to give it permission to run in Vista and XP, but it works and I've used it many times.

If this is what you're already using, go to their help page to resolve the problem.

Hope this helps.

Wireless Networking With a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GX Router?


k2rt9ceswg,

You seem rather savvy so I won't bore you with frivolous explanation. Essentially ISPs detect the MAC address of whatever device is plugged into their network. In the case of your laptop connected wired to your modem, the MAC address of your wired adapter is what is tied to your ISP account. When you plugged in a router, the MAC address of that router was different than your laptop's wired network adapter and your ISP said "nope, not letting that connect". This is something most ISPs are doing now-a-days.

You can get around this by following these steps:
  1. Plug your PC back into the modem wired
  2. Ensure you have internet connection again
  3. Go to Start -> run and type "cmd" without quotes
  4. Type "ipconfig /release" without the quotes (there is a space in there that needs to be in there)
  5. Disconnect your PC from the modem and plug the router into it
  6. Plug another LAN cable into the router and your laptop
  7. In the same command prompt, type "ipconfig /renew"
If the computer pulls an IP address for the wired ethernet, you should be all set to disconnect the cable from the router and PC and try to connect to it wireless. If it doesn't pull an IP address, you'll need to contact your ISP and inform them that you're having trouble getting your new router to work with your existing network.

You might also consider depressing the reset button located on the back of your Linksys router to set the router to its default configuration. This would clear all previous settings if there were any and might clear up any configuration options you had set when previously using this router.
