Cannot Connect To Mshome Network, But Get Internet Access


Ok, i was trying to allow a network drive to be used offline on my wireless hp laptop running win7. I have had connectivity to the internet, printers, drives and other pcs for over 4 months. All of a sudden, i cannot connect to the mshome network. I still get internet access, but i can not connect to my drives, my printers or my other pcs. I shut off the firewall and disabled the virus protection. It lists the devices in the map, but it will not connect.

Is there anyway to force a connection to my local home network :mshome: via win7? At least in xp you can set up a home network connection. All win7 seems to have is the home group.

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?

Cannot Connect To Internet

I have a dell optiplex 760 desktop computer
Cable internet connection
Windows vista home basic operating system
Norton 360 internet security

This question has been addressed numerous times and†i did read some answers, but each case seems to not be a perfect fit. I was on the internet and tried to to go to a different site and i got a message that the page could not be found. After that i couldn't get back to any page. I when i click on the diagnose option on the resulting error page, it tells me that it can't find a solution. The system had been running perfect for 3 months and i'm at a loss on what to do next. I did try to unplug to modem for 20 seconds, but that did not work. Maybe i need to unplug the modem for a longer period of time.

Cannot Connect To Internet At All

Have had no problems for months, but after a lockup and reboot i cannot connect to the internet at all. I am using a cable modem with a linksys router. Two other pcs on the router have no trouble connecting so it is not a modem or router problem. I am set for auto detect ip and my current ip is 169. 254. 88. 3 so i know it is a problem with tcp/ip or dhcs on my pc. I am running vista sp 2. I tried netsh winsock reset catalog

And tried resetting the tcp/ip stack with†netsh int ip reset reset log.txt but nothing worked and no log file (resetlog.txt)†was created. I tried reseting the dhcp service with no luck. Ny ideas?

Internet Wont Connect

Internet won't connect, can't access anything past network and internet screen in control panel, programs won't open or uninstall, everything just continually "thinks" (little blue circle spins round and round . I just bought a brand new laptop less than 5 days ago. The internet and all programs worked fine all weekend, up until last night when i turned it off. This evening, i turned on the laptop, and the internet will not connect, either wirelessly or when directly connected.

It's not a problem with the internet, as my desktop is working just fine. The internet icon in the task bar in the lower right corner starts off with the little blue circle on top of the bar graph, and then turns into an "x". When i try to right click on it, it pulls up the network and internet screen but freezes and will not tell me the network status, or any other information.

When i go to the windows task manager, it says all applications are running. When i go to networking within windows task manager, it says the wireless internet is connected, and when i connect directly to my modem, it also says that is connected, but no network ever shows up in the task bar, and ie will not open.

Windows also installed approximately 15 updates upon starting the computer this evening. I tried to uninstall the updates, but the uninstall program freezes. Updates it installed automatically include windows malicious software removal tool x64 january 2010, security updates (various), update for windows 7 for x64-based systems, etc.

I also have norton antivirus installed on the laptop (it came with a free trial). It does not appear in the task bar in the right corner anymore. When i click the desktop link, or when i try to open it via the start menu, it does not open. When i tried to uninstall it, the whole thing just froze (similar to when i tried to uninstall all other updates).

Ie Wont Connect To Internet

When i click the repair tab for my network/lan settings everything checks out but ie and outlook express can't connect to the internet. I have a laptop that connects with no problems through the router, and i have tried bypassing the router with no luck. I tried a repair installation of the os (xp home) with no luck either. I could connect for a few minutes at first and then nothing. Since the repair install i no longer have any restore points.

Any help would be appreciated. Work offline is not selected. My os disc was sent to me as a replacement a couple weeks ago. It does have sp2 , so the drivers should be sufficient. I did try to update them with no change. This has happened to two of my computers. Any chance my re-install disc has issues?

Unable To Connect To Internet

Got a new computer with windows 7 a few days ago.could not hook up to the internet no matter what i tried. The other computers are hooking up fine and the old one was working as well. Anyways, we returned it thinking it was a hardware problem. Hooked the old one back up and internet is working fine. Found a really good deal on another computer running windows 7, brought it home, hooked it up and same thing. Tried everything called tech support, and after an hour on the phone trying this and that he says, "must be a cable problem, get a new cable. "†

Yeah, right, he was obviously trying to get rid of me cause he didn't know how to help me out. So what should i do?†I don't want to go through the hassle of returning new computer #2 and go through this again with another one.computer recognizes family network and gets wireless signal with almost full bars but can't connect and it automatically says internet was unable to connect to the network. Old computer works fine, it's not a matter of bad cables. All other computers work fine.could this be a windows 7 problem or do i have to get a new router? My current one isn't even that old. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Cannot Get Tivo To Connect To Internet

I set up an ad-hoq network connection between my tivo device and my laptop running windows 7. I can see the connection in the connection list and when i connect to tivo i can transfer files between the 2 devices. I obviously have no trouble connecting to the internet with my wireless modem but i cannot get tivo to connect to the internet.

Also when i run the windows network diagnostics tool, it says "i have ne preferred wireless networks" and "wireless network connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration" but with no clues how to fix either problem. All i want to do is connect tivo to the internet.

Cannot Connect To Internet Comcast

"what is wrong with my internet?" Ok, so, i am trying to fix my neighbors computer. He has internet through comcast.initially, i told him that he had to call them to have them come and resolve the issue. Well, they came out and looked at his computer, and they told him he had a virus. So, today i went over there and ran a variety of system scans to better help me know what is going on, and the scans came back with no threats nor any virus.

So i ran disk defrag, troubleshooted the internet connection, and nothing worked. So i plugged the router into his laptop he was trying to get wireless internet set up on to see if the internet was working, and it worked fine on the laptop. What could be causing this problem and how/what can i do to resolve this issue for him? I even tried resetting the router.

Cannot Connect To The Internet Using Ie, Chrome

I just upgraded to windows 7, and when i try to connect to any wireless/wired network the yellow exclamation point shows up saying that i am connected to the network but not the internet. Once i open up firefox (only firefox), it instantly connects and everything seems fine. However, i still cannot connect to the internet using ie, chrome, or any other programs including windows update and activation for which i get the 0x80072efd error. I have tried disabling the firewall, but it still doesn't work. Has anyone else experienced this problem or have any other suggestions?

Win 7 Can No Longer Connect To Internet

My desktop running windows 7 can no longer connect to the internet via wireless or ethernet. The ethernet used to work, but no longer does (and yes, it is plugged in). The wireless worked on occasion, but not very often. Now i have nothing.

The problem has to lie in windows 7 because other computers, (vista and xp) can connect via ethernet and my laptop (xp) can connect via wireless. I also know the hardware on my computer is not at fault because i can boot†from a †live disk with linux and everything connects just fine (wireless and ethernet).

Windows diagnostics cannot find anything wrong with my connection, nor will it attempt to fix anything. However, it will say that there is an issue with the ip configuration. I have tried to manually input ip address and to have windows do it automatically. Neither changes the situation.

Browsers Won't Connect To Internet

Iíve been contacting verizon since june 7 to get my desktop at home on-line. I use ie. Evan tried foxfire and safari. No one seems to be able to get me on-line. Even had a computer technician that i paid to come out, and he says it's verizon. Finally, verizon sent a field technician out twice and each time he was able to get me on-line after several hours and phone calls. It lasted for 2 days each time. After it went down the 2nd time, called verizon back and they said i had a defective modem 6100f because red light didn't go on.

Sent a new westell 6100g and the light now goes on, but it's red. Called back and spent some time with a support technician and he said there was some kind of outage in the area, he didn't know what. Told me he'd call back in 4 hours. Never heard from him. I plugged the ethernet connection into my laptop and the red light is still on the modem. I just want to know what avenue to pursue to fix my problem. Iím going to starbucks daily just to be able to use my laptop.

Verizon doesn't seem to be able to fix the problem. And i don't want to get a new computer if the internet connection doesn't work into the house. They put a filter on the outside at the box so i didn't have to put filters on my phone lines. My neighbor right next door has dsl and isn't having any problems. Does anyone have a solution? I still have window 2003 on my desktop.

Easy Connect Option In Remote Access Not Working

I have a 64 bit hp m9600t that came with vista which eventually i upgraded to windows 7 (64 bit). I have norton internet security suite 2010. When i try to use the easy connect option in remote access, whether trying to ask or connect to assist to my wife's computer, as it checks network capabilities, i get the message "can't connect to the global peer-to-peer network. " This makes me have to use the email process which i should not have to do with two window 7 computers. My wife's computer there doesn't seem to be a problem using easy connect (except to my computer); she has a gateway gt5034 (32 bit) that was upgraded from vista to windows (32 bit).

No Internet Access

I am having problems connecting to the internet via wifi with windows 7. The connection works with my desktop and apple laptop, but my new windows 7 laptop cannot connect regularly. I can connect to the local network, but it cannot then connect to the internet. I have restarted my computer multiple time, restarted my modem multiple time, restarted my router multiple times, used windows problem solver to check for the issue and it hasn't come up with anything. What should i do.

This is really annoying, especially since windows has advertised how easy it is to connect to wifi, yet that is not the case.

Internet Access

I'm yet again having problems connecting to the clients internet at work on various sites i work on, i 've manually set up the connection and when i try connecting wirelessly it finds the router but it wont acquire the network address

I can connect by hardwiring but i cannot view web pages, i've been in contact with their it support who had me look at a few things and that the ip address was different to what it should be and that he couldn't do any more without taking the laptop to him

I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what the problem could be, he seemed to lose interest with trying to fix it through constant emails

I have a windows 7 laptop which i can;t connect and a xp laptop that i used to be able to connect but i formatted it and now i'm having the same problem as the windows 7, i can connect both laptops to my home network without any problems whatsoever

No Internet Access At Reboot

I installed windows 7 home. I have a netgear wireless home router wgt624v. 3 everything was working fine after setting up router. But when i reboot, it loses the router. I look under network before the reboot i see residential gateway under network infrastructure. And under network and sharing center i see netgear home under active networks. After reboot under network sharing center i see†unidentified network along with netgear home network. To resolve this connection i have to disable then enable the network adapter. Then everything gets identified and i get access to the internet. I am at a total loss on what to do to fix this.

Keep Losing Internet Access

I have a dell inspiron 530 computer and since windows 7 was installed i am having internet problems. Occasionally i will have access all day but often after a couple of hours internet access will drop. I phoned our provider and was told that everything looked good on their end. After powering off the wireless router and removing the ethernet cable, nothing happened but once the router was powered off and the blue cable†from the router†to the computer was removed then replaced access was restored.

An hour or so later i still had access (according to the light on the router) but once i pressed the space bar to bring up programs the light immediately went off and there was no internet access once more. Since as soon as i touched the space bar, the access ended, i assume there is some interconnectivity there.
Please advise

Cannot Access Public Internet

I have win7 pro installed on a laptop. I can access the public internet on my home network but not when connected on my corporate network. When connected to the corporate network, i can access intranet sites with†no problem and can ping public sites (like microsoft.com) but just can't connect using any type of browser (tried ie8 and safari). Other o/s's (xp/vista) work fine on the network and connect to all websites. Have tried 2 different installs of win7 pro, the first being the factory oem load and also purchased a shrink wrapped copy and installed from a reformat.

There was no change, still can't access public internet sites on the corporate lan. It does work fine though when i connect to the same lan from home using our vpn client. I've tried turning off the firewall including my av software (trendmicro) with no luck. Any ideas what is blocking my web traffic?

Internet Connection Access Controller

Does anyone know a free program (from a company that can be trusted) to controller internet connection access?†I want to be able to connect to the internet via password once per time i'm on the computer and have it disconnect automatically when i put the computer on standby or when it switches users. The reason i'm not doing this through the modem settings page automatically is because i also have a wireless connection that i want to always be on (so that all i have to do is connect wirelessly with no extra steps on the computer).

Network Printer Cannot Connect

Its for my homegroup network with both computers running windows 7 (pc is on 64bit and laptop is on 32bot). I can print from the pc where the printer (epson) is connected via usb but i can't print from my laptop through the network. The homegroup works fine enough, i can access files through it. I thought originally it was pharos that was upsetting the computer (installed very very poorly and finally days later managed to get every sign of it off the laptop) - but now i get the printer being found but it won't connect!

I've been though a couple of other threads but none of it seems to work. The file and printer sharing has always been connected (as my brother from his xp computer can print to my printer) and the firewall lets it through. Is there any other way? The permissions are set to print for everyone so its not that either. Does anyone know how i can get my laptop access to print?

Cannot Connect To Home Network

I was on the internet on my pc earlier today and as i was typing in a url into the browser, all of a sudden, my internet connection was lost. When i tried to reconnect, it said "the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network. " I didn't change any settings and i've been using the internet with my home network for at least 4 months now with no prior problems. (We bought a new router and wireless adapter, both of which are trendnet and have never given us any problems before).

I tried uninstalling my wireless internet usb adapter and then installing it again and it still won't work. I've tried manually connecting to the network as well, but that won't work either. When i tried connecting to the network, it was also telling me that the password was incorrect, but when i checked on all the other computers/laptops in the house that are connected, they all had the same password entered and are all getting the internet. I really am stumped as to why the connection suddenly stopped working and why i can't get it to work again even after all i've tried.
