Connected directly to the router and can access the internet. However, the LAN is inaccessible, i.e. can't see my workgroup for the first time ever. What happened? I've changed nothing.

My acer aspire one wont connect to internet. it says it is connected to wireless, and i have wired it to modem but the problem still persists. please help.


Based on your description, the following is assumed.
1. The service to your Internet Service Provider is through a cable or DSL modem.
2. Internet service was initially set-up with your netbook directly connected to the modem.
3. A wireless router was since added and is using the direct wired connection to the modem.
4. The netbook is connected to the wireless access point being provided by the router.
5. The netbook says it is connected to the wireless access point but still no internet access.
The problem is likely due to the modem capturing the MAC address of the netbook when access to the internet servce was initially set up using the netbook directly connected to the modem and now the modem will only allow access with the netbook directly connected to it. You can check this out by reconnecting the netbook directly to the modem. It may be possible to "flush" the captured MAC by unplugging the AC power to the modem, waiting a few minutes and then powering back up with the router connected in place of the netbook. To make it easier, you may want connect your netbook directly to the router's LAN side to check if you now have internet access through the router. If you still don't have internet access, you will need to use your netbook to log onto the router to clone your netbook's MAC address for the router's WAN connection. The router's user guide/manual has directions on logging in and doing the MAC address clone. It will also have an explanation as to what is a MAC address.

Hi, Please help me I have one pc having DSL internet connection with usb modem, I shared connection through ip 192.168.0.1 and my other pc i made it obtain Ip automatically and I am getting internet...


If both your clients and your on the same Lan connection ( and I don't think they are on the same LAN NETWORK), you have to add his computer to your workgroup, in the meantime, you have to change one of the two ip addresses so that connection will be possible, otherwise never. If you are not on the same Lan connection, there's no possibility doing this way, you have to use a remote desktop tool like Teamviewer or LogMeIn etc...

If they are connected to a Server, then you have to configure it from the server, or if connected through a Router (You'll need to properly setup the Vlan with the switch/es), then setup from the router.. etc..etc...

If both the computers are connected to the Internet, you better opt for Teamview, with teamviewer you can access everything (don't configure anything during the setup installation) on each other's computer... File sharing, transferring, remote access as you work on that computer..etc..

You can download TeamViewer free from here (click here).

As you know, networking is very complex and it's not so simple to read and follow the steps through instructions without proper understanding of the concepts..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Access point router and wireless router communication


You said that the router connected to the modem is acting like an access point. that means the DHCP server on that router must be disabled. The second router is connected to the first with the ethernet port. What you can do, you can enable the DHCP server on the first router and make the second router work as an access point.
so that both the computers will be in the same IP address range.
If they are already in the same IP address range then you can try to ping the second computer's IP address form the first computer.

Server cannot see wireless workgroup machines but shares Internet


Disable any firewalls on the machine like Windows firewall or any other firewall like Norton, McAfe, ZoneAlarm and something like that. Or if you have firewall policies or access rules, you must enable the sharing there.

Hey BIgz19


It is not illegal, of course!


I assume you do have an ADSL or Cable modem connected with LAN cable.
You connect your modem to the wall outlet/splitter with a telephone cable.
Then then modem is connected with LAN cable to your router's WAN port and then two PCs to any of 4 LAN Ports.

Please follow these steps.

First RESET your Edimax router and disconnect all LAN cables if connected.

Connect one PC to one of the 4 LAN ports of your Router with a LAN cable.

Open My Network Places and then View network connections, or go to Control Panel and open Network Connections.

Right-Click on your LAN adapter and choose Properties, then double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Set to 'Obtain IP address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS server addres automatically' (click OK). Now you are back to the previous window. Click and check (if it is not) 'Show icon notification when connected' and once again click OK.

After a fiew seconds you should get (near to the clock in the the right bottom of your desktop), a Network icon and a baloon message that your NIC is connected.

Right-click on the network icon and click STATUS, a window will open
and then click on SUPPORT tab.
You should see:
IP Addres: 192.168.2.100
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.2.1

Open your browser and type http://192.168.2.1

Now login as:
admin (default)
and password is: 1234 (default)

Click on GENERAL SETUP on Top-Left, and then on WAN (on the right side) and choose
PPPoE.
Click on 'More configuration'
Type your User Name and Password you have from your ISP.

Now Click on APPLY, and again APPLY !

The Router will restart in 30 Sec, and your NIC will reconnect.

Now connect your Modem to a WAN port of your Router with LAN cable.

Now:
if you've typed your User Name and Password correctly in PPPoE fields,
and
if everything is OK with the service from your provider,

you should now be on Internet.

If not, then please check your User Name and Password with your Internet Service Provider, and ask them if they can see your router.

Now, get to the other PC and do the same above.

Connect the NIC with LAN cable to another port of your router.

The second PC should be on Internet, too.

You should check if both PCs are in the same WORKGROUP !
Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, then click 'Computer name' tab, and down on CHANGE. In the Workgroup field type the same as the Workgroup name of the other PC, then APPLY and OK.
This action need a REBOOT. Do reboot!

That's it!

Hope it helped.

There is no utility that comes natively with XP to monitor traffic on an ICS connected LAN. I assume you are not directly connected to the ICS computer, and are running through a Switch or Hub? And you do not have access to this to see how many lines are connected?

If this is the case, you can download and install a packet sniffer and place it within the LAN in front of the ICS computer. It will 'see' all packets traveling across the wire, and report the MAC addresses and IP Addresses to which they are bound. Since every NIC has a unique MAC address (and IP Address), you can see how many computers (NICs) there are in the LAN, and connected to the wire.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packet_sniffer

Ethereal:

http://www.ethereal.com/download.html

You can also use a utility like LanGuard Analyzer to search for all computers on the LAN:

http://www.gfi.com/lannetscan/

The last time I checked the trial version is fully operational for 30 days.. I use it in my Corporate LAN to monitor all 1000 computers in my domain.

One other thing to keep in mind, since ICS uses the Class C subnet (this cannot be changed), it has a limit of 254 clients that can be attached.. just an FYI..

Good luck!
