Wireless Router, One Pc Will Not Network

I have new 4 hp desktops set up on a wireless network thru a westfall wireless router that have been in use for several months without using any of the windows 7 network - home/work group capabilities. I was asked to connect a hp wireless printer through the same router so all four pcs could print to the one printer. The printer set up was easy. However, all but one pc is able to network. I can map the other pcs and printer.

I can access the printer webpage and change printer preferences but i can not use the printer. When i am in the network settings, the full network map setting shows the other pcs and printer but when asked to show devices connected to the network it shows zero items. I have checked all firewall, internet and file sharing settings on all four pcs and they are the same. This is my first experience using windows 7. Is there another feature that would block sharing or networking access?

Internet Connection Sharing Using 3g Usb Router

I have three machines, two running win 7 and one xp machine. My internet connection is via a 3g usb connection on my main machine running win 7. I recently purchased a d-linkdap-1160 wireless router so that i can share the internet connection. It seems win 7 cannot or will not share the 3g connection when using the outer. If i set up an ad-hoc wireless network and exclude the router then ics works with no problem.

As soon as i try to set ics and use the router then everything falls over and i lose the internet and the wireless network. If the 3g connection is installed on the xp machine and shared using ics then i have no problems. Do the same thing on win 7 and it will not work. My local techie suggests setting up a proxy server on win 7 main machine and letting that handle the internet sharing. Any other ideas?

Netgear Wireless Router Problem

I recently upgraded my hp desktop computer from windows xp to windows 7. For the past 4 years my access of my desktop and my wife'slaptop computer is as follows: the internet cable is hooked to a "netgear wireless-n wnr1000 v2" which is hooked to a arris model tm02g modem, which is then hooked to my hp desktop computer. With windows xp both my my desktop and my wife's laptop could receive the internet. Now my wife's can receive the internet with this arrangement but my desktop cannot. When i connect the internet cable directly to the arris modem-thus eliminating the natgear wireless router-i can receive the internet on my desktop but my wife cannot on her laptop. Sometimes i receive a message that there is an additional computer with the same address as mine on the network.

Network Wireless Router Problem

I am using a desktop and a laptop with windows 7 and i have a wireless router which had been running without problem. I tried to set up homegroups, so i could share the printer. It wouldn't allow that, saying that there was a problem with the network, but no hints on what the problem is. At some point windows 7 took over my router setup and made a network. I can't seem to control the network or make changes to it, and now the laptop won't connect to the network, because i don't know a password that was assigned at some point. How do i kill, revise, or control the network? The available menu's don't seem to address this.

Unable To Connect To Wireless Router

I just purchased an hp mini with w 7 starter two months ago. Until yesterday i have been able to connect to my actiontec m1424wr router. After running win network diagnostics it says there is a "problem with the driver for the wireless network adapter". I can't get online to help and support for further diagnostics because i can't connect to the internet(catch 22). The taskbar shows my router is available with "limited access". I also have a dell laptop w/ xp and have never had a problem connecting. I have performed some of the ideas from one of the threads on this forum including the shutdown of the netbook and router and then powering them back up. I am not real tech savvy but really need some help with this.

Laptop Does Not Connect To Printer Connected To Wireless Router

Windows 7 wireless laptop does not connect to printer connected to netgear wireless router the printer must be restarted every time i want to print from the wireless windows 7 laptop (through the use of the printer on/off switch. ) The hp 2820 mfp printer has a network card and is connected to the netgear dgn2000 router. I have used the built-in troubleshooting devices from the windows control panel but the problem continues. (Note the laptop was upgraded from vista and the printer worked ok. Also the router was upgraded from an old 2-wire router that died. So, unfortunately i have two variables).

Wireless Internet Is Connected But No Internet Access

I just bought a new computer with os windows 7. As i was doing the set-up, it asked about the home wireless network and i identified it and entered the internet key. After the set-up was over, i cannot connect to the wireless network. It says connected and no internet access. It has the public icon and "unidentified network".

I have a "network error" window that keeps popping up that says "another computer on this network has the same ip address". I tried one of the solutions on this site to resolve it. I used the command prompt to release and renew the ip address and seems to not have worked. How can i get a valid ip address? And how can i make my computer recognize the home wireless network?

Setting Wireless Router Security Setting Have Changed

I have two selections possible. 'set up a new connection or network' wizard, or 'connect to a network' (manually) in windows 7. I know how to install hardware but my problem is, the security setting have been changed, and these changes i am trying to make in the configuration are not possible. The different permutations on offer do not provide the correct selection for me. e.g. I want to key in wpa + wpa2 i can only have one of them. Authentication and data encryption have same problem. You cannot key in the info manually.

Cannot Use Wireless Internet On Macbook

Cannot use wireless internet on my macbook when running windows 7 through boot camp. I have no problems at all when i use the same laptop to connect to the internet wirelessly using the mac os x operating system. My older laptop running windows xp also has no problem connecting. I've tried going to the control panel, then network and sharing center, then connect to a network, and it shows that no connections are available.

When i click on change adapter settings, only two options are shown: the bluetooth network connection, which is not connected, and the local area connection, which would be the wired connection because it says the network cable is unplugged. My router does not have a bluetooth connection. I made sure all the drivers were installed.

Wireless Internet Connection Problems

I got a new sony vaio laptop for my birthday yesterday and i have spent all night and all of today trying to connect it to the wireless internet in my house. It has windows seven and my computer techonologically informed friend says that because my new laptop is with windows seven, but the router is hooked up through a vista computer, that it is not compatible and my laptop is not letting me connect to the wireless. When we tried to investigate the problem on my laptop, it says that it is connected to my netgear system, but the connection is not strong enough for me to actually use the internet.

 I did not have this problem with my previous windows xp acer laptop. It didn't have a problem connecting and allowing me access to the router. My friend believes this is a fault with windows seven, and so i have turned to this site for help. We have investigated as many possibilities as we could but could not resolve the situation. Is there something wrong with my computer? Or is this a common problem that is easily fixed?

Using Both Wired And Wireless Connection - 1 For Internet 1 For Printer

Using both a wired connection and wireless connection - one for internet access, one for printer access. We have a business dsl account, where we get 5 static ip addresses. We use the dsl router to connect 2 computers, a nas, and another wireless router, to provide access to others.

We have a networkable hp officejet 8500 a909g, but no longer have any more available ports to add it to the network. What i contemplated doing was hard-wiring the printer to the wireless router, then using the wireless card on my laptop, and a wireless adapter on the desktop (these are the 2 computers hard-wired to the dsl router) to connect to the wireless router, allowing us to see the printer and use it.

However, whenever i do this, the wireless connections seem to take precedence over the wired connections, which sort of negates the fact that they are wired in the first place. Is there a way to give the wired connection precedence, and then using the wireless only when we need to print? And does the computer being connected to two networks at one cause any problems?

Live Tv Shows No Signal But There Is

Windows media center tv hangs after re-installing windows 7, quite naturally i had to re-tune tv within windows media center. It appears to have download all the channels and schedules, but it states there is no tv signal when i know there is. In the past it has looked for a tv signal and just hung. At least i get a message now stating that there is no signal. All the channels are there complete with channel numbers and programs. I decided to re-tune, but how can i do that? Would a file delete be in order?

Monitor Loses Signal In Media Center

Running windows 7 rc on a dell dimension e521. Runs great, except for the odd thing that has been happening lately. Randomly, while watching tv through windows media center, i'll hear the sound that usually plays when a usb cable is unplugged, and then my monitor will lose its signal. There is no way to get the signal back, as i've tried unplugging and replugging the monitor in, both power and dvi. Ive tried ctrl+alt+del. I usually have to hard restart, and then my monitor comes back on when the bios screen comes on. I want to say its a driver issue, but it happens so randomly, i just cant tell what it is. Any guesses?

Kworld Usb Tv Tuner - Unable To Determine Tv Signal Configuration

Kworld 399u usb tv tuner "unable to determine tv signal configuration" windows 7 media center (64 bit) i have just upgraded my 64 bit vista machine to windows 7 and am no longer able to use my kworld 399u usb tv tuner in media center.

It worked fine under vista, however after upgrading i was asked to set up my tv signals again. After media center runs "examining tv signals" for several minutes, it displays the message "windows media center is unable to determine your tv signal configuration".

I have tried downloading and installing the latest windows 7 drivers from http://uk. Kworld-global.com/main/support_down.aspx?Mnuid=1338&modid=22, but this does not make a difference.

I rolled my machine back to windows vista and the tuner works perfectly again, even after installing the latest drivers.

Ip Address Changes On Router Reboot

Running windows 7 cabled to wireless router. Occasionally broadband "drops out" and when rebooting router ip address for wireless printer (epson stylus office tx610fw) changes form 10. 1. 1. 2   to 10. 1. 1. Something depending on how many laptops are connected. As a result i have to go into control panel, hardware & sound select the printer then via 'settings' select the printer and add it manually with new ip address. Obviously irritating as other family members, despite printed instructions, cannot manage it. Please, is there anyway to 'lock' the ip address so it doesn't change?

Setting Up Security To Protect Router

I set up a network and installed a router for wireless access to the net. I did not set up the security protection on the router at that time. Am trying to do so now but keep running into road block. I followed the directions  for security set up in the "setting up a wireless network. When i click on the "set up a new network" and click next i get a window that has two (2) messages.

"Choose the wireless router or access point you want to configure" and "it might take up to 90 seconds for unconfirmed devices on your computer to appear". Under the second message is a blank box. Nothing ever appears and the only options i am left with is cancel or next selection is not activated. Can someone help on where to go from here. The router manufacturer has provided ip address and password which i don't know what to do with.

System Audio Is Low

My sound system is messed up big time! My computer uses realtek high definition audio, and my audio is very strange. Earlier one day, it was working just fine. Later one day, the main part of music, video, etc. 's audio was super quiet, and the background noise (like background music in video
And guitar, bass, etc. Parts in music) were louder than they should've been. This is happening everywhere (itunes, online, etc. ), And i think it's just my laptop because no one else is complaining. I can't listen to anything!

Disk Attached To Router Runs Slow

The issue i am having is with a router where an external disk is attached so that it is functioning as a nas. On my xp machine i experienced that the nas drive ran very slow and i found out that i had to install the net bios protocol which made it run smoothly. Now i've started to run windows 7 and the connection from windows 7 to the nas is again very slow (xp -> nas = still running fine).
I've tried to find the netbios protocol in windows 7 but no luck, so i have instead enabled the netbios over tcp/ip. Any ideas on how to make my "nas" run fast with windows 7?

Low Memory With 12 Gigs Onboard

I sometimes get a "memory low, close unused programs, etc. " I have 12 gigabytes of memory installed. For the few programs i have open, and with the analysis of what those programs are actually using, about 1. 55 gb, i should not be getting a low memory alert. Usually happens when i start a movie with media player.

Physical memory performance readings in mb are:
Total 12278 mb
Cached 5936 mb
Available 10669 mb
Free 4805 mb

So, why the low memory alert, where did the unused memory go to keep it from being used by windows 7. Boot up shows all memory and checks good, asus p7 motherboard, intel quad i920 processor.
