I just installed (yesterday) the latest W10 update that installed Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.3) and my home network consisting of five W10 PC's has been "destroyed." I do not use Homegroup. Instead, I have always set up all the drives/folders as shared on all the computers. That worked just fine until now! For some reason only one of the PC's is detected by the other PC's on the network. However, all the drives that I had previously Mapped are OK. Is there some new magic setting that I have to change to get network discovery working again ...or... is MSFT forcing me to use Homegroup?
A little more information to add to my confusion. I was wrong above - two of the PC's are shown in the Network on all the PC's. One of the five PC's, which I use as a home server, runs 24-7. For some reason it has all the other PC's showing under Network and can access all the stuff on all the PC's!! I know it used to take Windows a few minutes to find all the PC's on the Network but... all the other PC's have been running for many hours and nothing changes.
I know this problem has been discussed with many variants but not quite the same as I'm experiencing, so I'm starting a new thread.
I did a clean install of Windows 10 pro 64 bit, and everything was running perfectly, that is until two days ago when the computers on the network simply disappeared. I had done nothing with changes or new software or anything of that sort.
I checked network discovery and it was on, but the only computer showing was the home computer. I have tried turning discovery off then rebooting and then back on again and rebooting. In all cases the network drives are accessible. I have manually entered the computer name in the address bar of File Explorer eg "//COMPUTER2" and then I can go and enter the other computers manually. Everything will stay there until I close down File Explorer and then they disappear again only shown the home computer.
My wife doesn't use a password to log on to her Windows 10 PC. Her user name is her email address when the "Enter Network Credentials" window pops up when access is attempted from other computers. Her email password does not work here. We don't know what password it might be expecting. We've run NETPLWIZ on her machine and cleared the "users must enter a user name and password" box. This has no effect.
I have a desktop and a laptop setup at home, I have recently upgraded both to Windows 10. Both were previously running Windows 7 Home Premium and could identify each other on the network and I could access files on either PC from one or the other at any time.With the upgrade to Windows 10 I am still able to see the other machine on the local network, but I am unable to access their folders and move files between machines. The error message I get is as follows.When I run the network diagnosis no errors are detected and it asks me if I want to explore other options.
The full error message is:I do have shared libraries available across both machines that are part of my homegroup, so I can access the video files in the hard drive of my desktop from my Laptop but only to play them - not to move them around.I suspect this is either a user validation issue, or a firewall issue and I'm not sure how to go about checking whether this is the case or not.
I have 2 desktops and 1 laptop at home. All 3 are joined in a homegroup, and all network and sharing settings are selected properly. All 3 computers have same windows accounts (passwords), same programs and same internet security.
The 3 computers show up in the network folder and can be accessed from any other computer.However access to the laptop is often denied, by error message 0x80070035 "network path not found"
From the laptop, each desktop is always accessible, no matter who is signed in.
From the desktops, the laptop is often not accessible (error message)
I run a business from home with four computers all running win 10. All was smooth and easy going until a recent round of updates where a couple of computers ended up changed from "home network "to "business network", leaving them unable to communicate with other computers on the network. When I found the problem on the first two computers it was easily solved by just changing them back and rebooting. Now the same problem has happened to all of them, but I'm unable to change it, in that every time I do, when I reboot it comes up saying its on a business network again.
I recently upgraded one of my laptops from Win7 Pro to Win10 Pro. Ever since then it has been taking a much longer time for the laptop to connect to either of my home networks (two different homes). This is with either WiFi or Ethernet.
When it was running Win7 it would connect to either home's network in a few seconds. Now it usually takes over a minute, as much as two minutes. Once it does connect everything works fine.
Here is the setup that I have. I have a wireless network. I have two Toshiba laptops, one running Windows 7 and the other running Windows 10 and I have a printer.
I continually lose connection to the home network although I am still connected to the internet on both laptops. This happens about every 10 or 15 minutes. The only way I've found to re-establish the network connection is to reboot both of the laptops.
I live in a very rural area and only have one option for internet access. It is through the phone company and all they offer is one of those 3G data card things that looks like a little USB data stick. The signal at my house is terrible, in fact, there is only one corner of my house that has a signal and that is where I have my wireless router. It is two rooms away from my computers. But the distance doesn't seem to be a problem for internet connection.
I complained to the phone company about the terrible signal and the woman there suggested that I use my Samsung phone as a router. I took the chip out of the data stick and put it in the phone. And it does work much better than the little Zoom router that I had been using. I do not know anything about the settings in the phone. The lady showed me which buttons to push on the phone to turn the phone on so it can find the signal.
I would prefer to know what I can do to keep it connected but if that fails, then I need to know how to re-connect to the network without rebooting either one or both of the laptops.
I have two computers that I'm trying to get to communicate with each other so I can move files back and forth between them. My plan is to make one of them the home's backup and main storage system. the problem is that I can only seem to get one of them to actually communicate equally. Computer 1 is a factory Lenovo Intel i3 computer. Computer 2 is a home made AMD that I just built a few weeks ago.
Both are running Win 10 Pro. Both are physically attached to the router. Heck, they're physically stacked on each other on my desk....
Using File Explorer, on the left side Panel under Network, it shows both computers: AMD and Lenovo.
Computer 1(factory) is able to the files on Computer 2 easily by going over through File Explorer. But, if I click on one of the files, I get the message that I DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION. If I try to cut/Paste files from Computer 1 to computer 2, I get the same message.
Computer 2. I am also able to see the computer listed under Network in the left panel. When I click on Computer 1 to access it, I get a Network Error Windows cannot access Lenovo (Computer1) Error code 0x80070035
I've tried the Diagnose option and it doesn't work.
If I click on a Drive under Network on the very computer, I can see the drives, I can see the directory list. If I click on a file, I get the error. Example on the left side panel on my AMD computer I select:
>AMD >C: >PerfLogs
It's at this point that I get the error: Windows cannot access amdcPerfLogs as an example
I've tried running through Homegroup setup and Googled for days on setting up a network with Windows 10 and can't seem to figure out what I'm not doing here to make these computers talk and communicate with each other. I eventually, want to get all my computers to talk to the AMD so I can use it for a main storage/backup for the home network.
i have a killer e2400 network adaptor over a wired connection on my msi motherboard. Unfortunately, out of the blue it has stopped working. I constantly get the error message "Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration." I have tried a number of things such as stopping and restarting the services in computer management. Nothing appears to work. I know my router works as I'm using it now on another computer.
I recently set up a Homegroup on a Win10 laptop so I can see another PC on the network. That PC is running Win8.1, and I would like to use it for file backup. The devices are visible on both ends of the network and have connectivity, but when I choose to use the File Backup function from the laptop, nothing transfers and eventually I have to restart because of no response from the system. Also, my browser will stop working. I have added the PC as a network location and specified the location for backup, but is has locked up twice now. Could this be a routing issue? I previously ran the auto backup feature to a memory card, but need more space.
I have changed my router. Is a 'FritzBox fon WLAN 7170'. First i connected, it was all good, i tried to connect to browser and it was good. Then i tried to connect Steam. "Could not connect to the steam network, either check your connection and click 'Retry' or start Steam in offline mode."I looked up for the probem, tried to:
- start the shortcut with -tcp - turn the firewall off - remove Steam from processes - uninstall Steam and install it again. - delete all files from Steam (without steamapps folder)
I tried other games online, they don't work either..I saw that video - Fritz!Box Firewall Port forwarding - YouTube (is 3:22 minutes long, if you want to watch it)I saw on the internet i can connect to the router settings with WIFI connection and i can't connect (CMD - ipconfig - Default Gateway in the browser).
Do i need to port forwoard all of them ?Is the Dynamic DNS the case?Why is the IPV6 with "No network access"? -Is the IPV6 important for online games?Do i need to set IPV6 ON?
My windows 2003 server stopped working in normal mode, but working in "safe mode with networking" and giving reply from all peers, and reaching all remote locations. in Normal mode not even ping to peer and giving error "destination host unreachable". tried with new NIC. IP conflict coming when assigning used IP address, if giving a new IP address not even request going to peer showing the same error as "destination host un reachble".
Product Name: Hp Omen 15 Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) Wifi card: Intel Wireless-N 7260
since some days my wifi has stopped working.If I click on Wifi icon it shows only ONE (max two) NETWORK:And I live in a building with 20+ networks, as you can see from WiFi Analyzer (I'm the red one on the right).If I deactive/reactive Wifi with fn+f12, it goes to Airplane mode and to Wifi mode again and it eventually shows all the networks/My Wifi is on the top. If it's saved, Windows connects to it and then it drops the connection; if it's not saved and I try to connect, it says "You're not able to connect to this network".The fun fact is that after some seconds every network disappear and only one is showed (probably the neighbour one..I dunno).
I've already tried to HARD-RESET the notebook keeping the power button for 10/15sec with the laptop turned off.I've already tried to follow these instructions [URL] ... updating drivers (Intel 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 [Windows 10 default], 18.32.0 [Lastest drivers]) with no success. Everytime I install a new drivers, I uninstalled the previous one + Wireless software + reboot.
I tried to uncheked "Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power" on my Wifi hardware settings without success.The HP Network support says I didn't choose a Wifi (Really? The problem is I don't see my Wifi on the list!).This is not related to a new Windows 10 upgrade since I've installed it months ago and It's the first time I've this problem :/ It always worked
I tried different settings too/I changed channel, I set 802.11g on my router, APSD off on the router.I set "Magic packet off, ad hoc QoS off, U-APSD off, fat channel off,incremental throughput off, HT mode off" on the card setting without success. Nothing chaned.The Hardware test doesn't detect any failure. If I go close to the router, it shows my network with full power connection and it connects to it. Then I go back to my bedroom (probably 3/4 meters far), it KEEPS the connection for 30/40min and It drops the connection and I can't reconnect to it anymore. It always worked perfectly in my room in these months (I bought it in March 2015), so the distance is not a problem, I'm 6/7m far from the router.In this case It shows my Network (Connected) and the neighbour network...and the other 20+ networks???
The only way I have is USB tethering with my Nexus 5.I tried the Wifi connection on Elementary Freya (Ubuntu linux based OS) and it shows 20+ networks available on the list. It has not connection problem with my Wifi, but sometimes it stops working, the webpages stop loading and I must reboot Wifi to reconnect to it (usually after 30/40min using it).What's the problem? Is my Wifi card broken?
I have a Dell Latitute E5530 laptop that won't connect to my secured home SSID. I have 2 other laptops connected to it wireless, plus phones, plus 2 TV's (via a Roku and a Chromecast). I thought there might be a limit to what I can connect (i.e., 5 devices), however I brought home a 2nd laptop from work and that connected with no issue while the Dell Latitude still cannot. I don't even get the option to type in the Password Key, it simply says "Cannot connect to the network". I'm able to connect to an unsecured network with this same machine, no problem. I've tried reset the network adapter, I'm just stumped at this as to why this computer won't connect.
My laptop is indicating that it is connected to my home network and that it has internet access but when I go to the network center it says that it doesn't have any connections. Attaching an ethernet cable doesn't work (which was an earlier problem too) I already updated my drivers and ran the troubleshooter but it didn't work. I also restarted my router so I did most things I can. Side note: It happened really suddenly from one moment to the other...
After latest W10 updates W10 computers can't see ANY other machines on my LAN.
2 Linux Machines, one W7, one XP and 2 W10 machines on a LAN.
Linux easily sees ALL computers and can access shared folders.
W7 and XP machines see All machines - Wndows and Linux. XP needs 128 bit encryption altered - no problem here though.
I've got both IVP4 and Ivp6 enabled.
W10 machines ONLY see their OWN individual machine -- nothing else -- not a sauasage.
The W10 machines can access PLEX and Logitech media servers running on Linux / Windows machines but the computers are missing.
Seriously MS Windows networking seems hosed up BIG TIME.
Note all these computers are on WIRELESS connections -- my Wireless speed is pretty good so not a problem for what I need.
C'mon ms - why is Windows Networking always a bit of hit and miss -- I've been using SAMBA on Linux for years and have never found any problem with Networking.
W7 is pretty good too (usually although I've had the odd rogue machine where networking seems to fail even though hardware and software is identical to another machine on network. W10 though while good in other things brings a whole slew of difficulty to networking. I shudder to think of what happens when I install a decent NAS this year.
I upgraded mu Alienware M14 from 7 to 10 using the Media creation tool, and now have no WiFi. Ethernet and Bluetooth both show fine, and a wired connection works perfectly, however, not being able to use WiFi puts a damper on the portability of said laptop.
I've tried the reg delete method, which informs me the key is not found, there was no VPN software installed. I do show a network adaptor under unknown devices, but no matter which driver I choose, it is unable to start. Short of a clean installation, and the loss of personal files and/or hours restoring them or reinstalling.
As stated in the subject line I can't connect my Windows 7 Pro system to a Windows 10 Home system via the network without a password being required. Strangely, I can connect from the Windows 7 Pro system to two other Windows 7 Home Premium systems on the same network without a password being required.
Also, all these systems (including the Windows 10 Home system) can connect to the Windows 7 Pro system without any password being required. How I can eliminate the requirement for a password to access the Windows 10 Home system from the Windows 7 Pro system? The Windows 10 Home system version number is 1511, build 10586.0.
