We have a new (albeit old) wireless printer (HP Color laserjet CP3525) with a wireless adapter card. Computers running Windows 7 or Windows 8 could see the network and connect. All computers could then print to the printer. None of our computers running Windows 8.1 could see the network. I upgraded one computer to Windows 10. It can now see the printer network but cannot connect.
ever since I had a new hard drive installed on my Toshiba Satellite I cannot make a connection to my printer. I was on Epson Tech support for almost 3 hours, and they told me the printer is fine, and I am connected to it, but there is something blocking the print job from going to the printer.
I forgot to mention that when they installed the hard drive, they upgraded my wind. 7 to Wind. 10.
I was unable to connect to an older (backup) AP in Win10, but Win7 and my phone, tablet etc could connect no problem - these were connecting using WPA-TKIP, but MS now only allows WPA2-AES
So MS have removed the less secure WPA-TKIP protocol from W10 (this apparently started in W8), but they have left the even less secure WEP protocol in place!!!
I have now connected using WEP - on my router you can use a passphrase to create the hex pairs for the key, but you need to enter the actual hex characters as the key (eg 13 hex digit pairs = 26 characters to enter)
Looking at the wlan profile from the command line interface shows what the settings are...
netsh wlan>show profile plusnet2 Profile PlusNet2 on interface Wireless Network Connection 4: ==================================== Applied: All User Profile Profile information ------------------- Version : 1 Type : Wireless LAN Name : PlusNet2 Control options : Connection mode : Connect automatically
I have two Windows 10 Pro x64 machines - say, A and B - connected into a home network. Both machines have two interactive user accounts registered on them: Admin (member of Administrators) and Bob (member of Users). On both machines user names are exactly the same and account passwords are exactly the same.I don't use HomeGroup file sharing, all sharing is set up using accounts and passwords. Everything works fine with folder sharing.
Now I would like to share a printer. The printer is connected to machine A. I enable sharing for that device and give it share name HP. I also go to the printer security settings and enable everything for Administrators and Users.Now I go to machine B. First, I log in as Admin. I go to Devices and Printers in Control Panel and perform the regular procedure of adding a network printer. At some point I have to enter the name of the printer, so I enter AHP. Without asking for any credentials Windows successfully connects to the remote printer, installs drivers, prints the test page etc. The remote printer appears in Devices and Printers. Everything works as it should.
Then I log out from Admin and log in as Bob on the very same machine B. The first thing that I notice is that for Bob the new printer does not exist in Devices and Printers. This is probably OK, since access to shared network resources depends on per-user credentials.
So, I attempt to "install" this printer for Bob as well. I repeat the same procedure from scratch. this time as Bob: go to Devices and Printers in Control Panel and perform the regular procedure of adding a network printer. Again, at some point I have to enter the name of the printer, so I enter AHP. However, Windows suddenly asks me for credentials to connect to the printer. If I enter Bob's user name and password, Windows refuses connect to the printer, claiming that Bob does not have permission to access it. End of story.
Note that I can work around this problem: I can enter Admin's user name and password when installing the printer for Bob and ask Windows to remember these credentials. Everything will work fine after that, which means that Bob will access that printer as Admin.I don't want to give Bob credentials of Admin to access the network printer. I want Bob to access that printer under Bob's credentials. It works perfectly fine for file sharing. How come it doesn't work for printer sharing?
Yesterday I downloaded Windows 10 on my wife's laptop and she immediately lost access to my Brother MFC-8500 printer which she was previously accessing though a wireless network and a router. The Brother is hardwired to the desktop, which was also upgraded to Windows 10, with a USB cord and is listed under printers on the desktop as "Brother MFC-8500 USB." Could you give me the procedure and the syntax for making this printer accessible once again to the laptop? If the syntax requires the desktop's IP address, could you tell me how to find it because the tutorials on the Web still talk about the Control Panel which seems to have been replaced with "Settings."
Upgraded a client's Windows 8.1 machine to Windows 10 Pro today and it's now unable to "see" the HP OfficeJet 6600 wireless printer directly behind it. I've assigned the printer a static IP address and I CAN ping it AND print to it from a wireless computer in the back office. However, I can NOT either ping it or print to it from the front computer. The Add Printer wizard never sees it either.
The computer has both a wired Ethernet and a wireless adapter. Both are enabled and show up in IPCONFIG.
I recently bought a new laptop with Windows 10. My previous laptop had Windows 7 and worked very well with my Brother MFC-J475DW Wireless Printer. I tried installing the driver for the printer from the original disk that came with the printer on the W10 laptop several times and kept getting a message that there is no printer. I went to the Brother website and downloaded the latest version of the driver and still get the same message. After some research I tried for the "built in" drivers, but with no success.
I have a desktop PC running Win7 64Bit Ent. It's not actually in use, so nothing is connected. I also have a laptop running Win10 64Bit which I'm using to type this post. I have some audio files on my desktop that I'd like to pull off of there, and put them on my laptop, and then maybe on a cloud. My 1st question: Is it possible to simply use a USB cable between 2 USB 3 ports if I simply power up the desktop with the USB cable connected? Does the USB protocol provide for me to see those HDD's on the desktop via the laptop? I'm quite limited for physical space, and I don't need the desktop to be running permanently, I just need to get these files off of it. If that's NOT a solution, what is the next easiest method?
I updated my sys to windows 10 one month ago. I had a smooth experience on network accessing but now my system internal apps are not connecting to internet(like windows store, Maps, sports, Food & drink etc). But I can able to browse using browsers(browsers are connecting to internet).
I recently got this problem. I restored, restore said it didn't complete, but problem is solved. However I have been having repeated connection issues. Not sure if it could be a hard drive failure imminent problem, or due to the forced update/installs Win10 makes me do.
I'm having an issue with my browser not connecting to my internet. I have no issues connecting to my email, Skype or steam. I just can't connect to webpages like Google. I have recently updated to windows 10 (from windows 7) but for the first day and a half everything was working fine. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling my network drivers and updating them for windows 10. I have tried restarting my router and PC 100 times. I have run multiple virus scans using Malwarebytes v.18.104.22.1684 with no show of infection. I have also tried using the commands to reset my TCPIP and Winsock in cmd (admin). My WiFi on my phone, tablet and laptop work fine.
I do want to mention that the second I updated my network driver for windows 10 all the webpages I had open loaded. But if I tried to open a new webpage it would not load. The message I get says "This webpage is not available. ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" and I sometimes get "This webpage is not available. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN" on Google chrome. I get "Server not found" on Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge doesn't even give me a message, just a blank page. Is there anything else that I can try?
I've decided to go back to Windows 7 and that has fixed the problem.
I have in the past readily connected two computers directly via an Ethernet crossover cable under Win7 and Win XP but cannot get this to work under Windows 10. No specific messages, just cannot see the alternate device from either notebook. make this happen under Win 10 ?
I have two computers running windows 10 and until recently they were both connected via WiFi, but recently after having problems with the WiFi my ISP told me the router should be connected to the master telephone socket.
Until they told me this the router was connected to a phone extension roughly halfway between my two computers, one downstairs and one upstairs. and it has been like that for almost a year with a reasonable speed to both computers, but just recently the WiFi speed has dropped so much it is almost impossible to use it.
So i have moved the router upstairs and connected it to the master phone socket and its so close to my PC i have used a Ethernet wire to connect to the computer and my download speed has doubled to the PC.
But one problem i have now is the other computer is now not visible on the network. so why when they were both connected via WiFi both were visible, but now one is connected via Ethernet and one WiFi they can not see each other.
Also now my router is upstairs the laptop downstairs connected via WiFi is so slow its useless. What to do i know i can get homeplugs but do they really work ...
Yooooo! I have a Lenovo Y510p with modified BIOS so I could replace the crappy Intel wireless card that came with it (Intel Centrino N2230) for an Azurewave - Broadcom 4352. The experience has been good so far, the only problem I'm having is the low wireless signal with the card. I have other laptops that have higher range and strengths on the same place with older cards.
I've tried verifying (and even swapping) the cables and noted no difference. I asked on another forum and they told me that it could be that the card is not receiving enough power, but I have yet to find a settings in the BIOS or in Windows that dwindles its performance. I have recently updated the driver from Lenovo's website and it didn't improve a bit. How to improve the wireless signal?
I have just bought an HP laptop running windows 10. I cannot connect to internet wirelessly as when I select my network connection it requests username and password. (Screen shot attached)I only have a network password for my connection and have never had or been requested for a username.
We have a couple of laptops at home and they connect with password only no problem. It is only this laptop that requests both. I can find no way past it and cannot connect. It connects via cable fine but thats obviously not ideal for portable laptop.
When I first installed Win 10 it was working great got my wifi connection working and everything now it seems I cannot get connected. I have tried several times, putting it mildly. I put in the Modem/router address and password and then I go to the site that shows you the wifi connections and mine is not there. But there are about 10 or 12 that are there. I have tried this several times like I said. And I have rebooted to see if that did anything and it made no diff.
It seems from some of the reading I have done this might be a problem caused by an update. It worked great for several days. And while I am thinking of it can you delete all those other wi fi addresses some how.
So i currently have a MSI GT80 Titan running killer wireless 1525 network adapter and am constantly seeing network drops to the point where i get an exclamation mark over my wireless icon and no activity. Connection shows connected but no speed, only until i manually disconnect and reconnect. This has been happening since earlier this week after having the laptop off for a couple days and i'm sure some updates came in from Microsoft.
Steps I've taken already to resolve this:
1. Uninstalled killer wireless software suite and installed stand alone killer driver 2. Refreshed the PC with clean windows 10 install 3. All drivers are up to date including BIOS 4. Ran ccleaner along with registry side of it 5. Memtest shows no errors 6. Hard drives show no errors 7. Connected to LAN and no drops all day
I'm not sure what else to check as this is a fairly new laptop bought back in march and doing some searching on google showed some posts about people with the same issues (different laptops/hardware) thinking it was related to Windows 10.
I have been connecting my PC to my router via a Ethernet cable and have had no issues but I want to move the PC to another room and run it off a wireless adapter. I tried a TP-Link USB adapter but it didn't work so I switched it for a Netgear one. That doesn't work either which makes me think there is something not right with my PC. I have installed and uninstalled multiple times, tired different USB ports but the Wireless Adapter doesn't seem to get an IP address and there are no Wireless settings in the control panel.But there are no Wireless setting and no connectivity to the Adapter.
my laptop recently did automatic updates and I have been having problems with the WiFi. When I first turn it on every thing is fine, but after about 30 minuets or if I shut the lid and it goes to sleep the WiFi just does not work anymore. I have to go to my network adapter and run the trouble shooter which finds the Windows Wireless Serves is not running on this computer. It starts it and every thing is fine for another 30 minutes or until I shut the lid again. I have looked in services.msc and WLAN AutoConfig is running and set to automatic. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver for my wireless card.
Most of the time we need to boot in safe mode with Networking to fix some of the issues. In some of the windows 10 computers wireless not working in safe mode with Networking
For an example my dell 5547. Has a wireless card, Intel Ac-3160 works fine in normal mode, But in safe mode it refuses to detect any Network, I am seeing similar behavior in some other models too in windows 10
