Not Sharing pc for win 7


It may be because of the workgroup setting. WINXP uses a default workgroup value of MSHOME. WIN7 uses a default of WORKGROUP. What happens then is that all computers can connect to the network and access the internet, but shared files and folders will not be seen due to the two different workgroups,

To change the workgroup in WIN 7:

Click START.

Right click on COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES.

In the SYSTEM window, choose ADVANCED SYSTEM SETTINGS

in the SYSTEM PROPERTIES window choose the COMPUTER NAME tab.

Observe "Workgroup" name.
To change, click the CHANGE button

Put the new workgroup name in the WORKGROUP block
(WINXP default is MSHOME)

Click OK

Close all windows

You will need to restart PC to set the new workgroup

How to network connect and activate windows 2007 & MAC X


Set up user accounts

Users connecting to Windows Sharing must have user accounts on the Mac OS X computer that is sharing. There is no guest access. Any person who already has an account on the Mac OS X computer can use his existing account. You must log in to the Mac OS X computer with an administrator account to set this up. The steps differ for new and existing users.

For new users
  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Accounts.
  3. Click New User (10.2) or the "+" button (10.3 or later).
  4. Enter the Name and Short Name for the user who will log in from Windows.

    The user's short name is exactly how the user will enter their name when they log in to Windows Sharing. The short name is always lowercase.

    For users of Windows 98: If you log in to Windows 98 with a username, make sure it matches your Mac OS X account's short name. If you do not log in to Windows 98 with a username, you will need to create a new Windows 98 username that matches the account short name in Mac OS X. For more information on using Windows operating systems, please see Microsoft documentation or contact Microsoft for further assistance.
  5. Enter the user's password.
  6. 10.2 only: Click the checkbox for "Allow user to log in from Windows".
  7. 10.2 only: Click OK.
  8. Quit System Preferences.

If your Windows PC has is equipped with an Ethernet port, you can connect your PC and Macintosh using an Ethernet cable. By doing this, you are creating a small local network, consisting of just the two computers. Set up your Windows PC by turning on File Sharing. Refer to the instructions that came with your Windows PC if you're not sure how to do this.

To locate and connect to the Windows computer, you can use the sidebar in a Finder window. You need to know the workgroup name for the computer and the network name (called the "computer name") for the computer. To connect to the computer, you also need a user name and password and the name of the shared folder you want to access. If you don't have this information, contact the person who owns the computer or your network administrator.

If you cannot locate the Windows computer in the Network browser, you may be able to connect to it using the Connect To Server dialog in the Finder.

Make sure the Internet Connection Firewall is turned off, or if it's on make sure TCP port 445 is open to allow sharing connections.
To connect you Mac and Windows computers: step_1.gif

In the Finder, choose Go > "Connect to Server."
step_2.gif

Type the network address for the computer in the Server Address text box using one of these formats:

smb://DNSname/sharename smb://IPaddress/sharename
step_3.gif

Follow the onscreen instructions to type the workgroup name and a user name and password, and choose the shared folder you want to access.

I want to start a network between my laptop and desktop


There are lots of guides on the internet...
BUT as a minimum you will need...
All the computers on your home network connected through the same router (Wired or Wifi).
All the computers on the same "Workgroup"..Choose a workgroup name and change all the computers to the same workgroup.
You will then need to change the properties of any drive/folder or files to enable sharing.
You can also drag stuff into the shared folder.
This can still be quite hit and miss, especially if your computers are using different versions of windows.
Good luck

My vista ultimate can not detect my ethernet controller ihave no connection can somebody plz give me sa drivers for this..


Hello ,,,,,
Try this

If you are running Norton, etc’s Firewall, check its settings.

1st thing to do is make sure that the Workgroup Name of ALL the computers is
the SAME.

In Vista Network and Sharing:

Network Discovery: ON (So it can see the other computers)

Network set to Private (Public is for hotspots, airports, etc)

File Sharing: ON

Public Folder Sharing: ON (Vista’s Public Folder is the same as XP’s Shared
Docs)

Password Protected: OFF (unless you want to set up identical usernames and
passwords on ALL computers in your Network) If you have it ON, you will be
asked for a username and password when you try to access a Vista computer
from an XP computer.



If you still have ask me...

Thanks

How to connect my phillips freeline LS1300 series desktop to my laptop?


If you are trying to connect the desktop to the laptop just so you can access each computer from each, you will have to setup a 'local area network' on each.

You first have to check the hardware. Both computers should be connected to a router or to each other via ethernet cable. Make sure connections are secure.
To confirm if there is physical connection, get the ip address of each computer.
1. Go to Start>run. Type in "cmd" without the quotes. Hit ok.
2. In the command prompt, type in "ipconfig". take note of the ip address for each. If it starts with 169, that means there's is no physical connection. Check your cabling or tell me, how you have it setup. Otherwise, you're good.

Second, setup the software. I am assuming, both computers run on Windows XP.
Do this on each computer.
1. Go to control panel. Go to "network and internet connections".
2. Click on 'Network Setup Wizard' on the left pane.
Check these screenshots.
http://screenshots.leeindy.com/network_setup_wizard.shtml
Follow the screenshots and do the following.
Take note of the computer name that you will enter for each computer. You must make sure that the Workgroup Name is the same for both computers. It doesnt matter what name you enter or if you leave the default as long as both computers have the same workgroup name.

Now, that you have connected them, you have to create a portal for each computer to access the other.
1. Go to computer1. Right click on a blank area on your desktop wallpaper. Left click on new>shortcut. type in \(ip address of computer 2. it should look like something like this ---> \192.168.1.3
Put the computer name of computer2 in the shortcut name box.
Try to open it. It should open the shared folders in computer2.
Repeat this process on computer2, entering the ip address and name of computer1 this time.

This will let you access the folders stored on each computer from the other. Be sure to share the folder you want to access remotely.
If you want to access 'my documents' in computer1 from the other computer, Go to computer1, right click 'my documents' and click sharing. check the box to enable sharing.
Do the same thing on any folder you want to share on the originating computer.
