VPN Connects, No Network Access

Jun 9, 2009

I've set up the client to connect to the PPTP VPN at my workplace. It connects, but I can't access any computers on the network through explorer or remote desktop, by IP address or by name. Also, the internet will not connect after connecting to the VPN [we have a proxy, and the browser won't connect to it].

On the VPN status, the IPv4 Connectivity is listed as Internet

the IPv6 is listed as No Network Access.

I can, in a command prompt, ping network computers by name or IP. ipconfig /all gives, from what I can see, identical results to a Vista computer that connects properly.

This occurs from my house [set up as a Home network] and from public networks. The VPN is set up as a Work network. I've tried changing these and it doesn't seem to help. I've also tried disabling Windows firewall.

VPN Connects, But Not Access To Folders In Server?

Jul 18, 2012

I recently re-installed Windows 7 to my hard drive and subsequently re-installed the VPN needed to access a remote server for work. I can connect to the server, but don't see any of the drives and/or folders within the servers. The tech at work said I had to configure my network to allow VPN traffic, but didn't explain how.

Network Connects And Disconnects Over And Over Again

Mar 9, 2011

Tonight I installed Windows 7 Service Pack 1. After the installation I see there's a cross over my network connection. But it keeps trying to connect. It's like you plug in cable, disconnect cable, every 5 seconds or so. But it never manages to fully connect. It gets to the state "identifying" then cross comes back.

Wireless Connects To Same Network Twice?

Mar 10, 2011

On 2 different laptops, one running professional, the other running Home Media, the computer tries to connect to my home network twice. The most frequent example is when I try to connect wirelessly, in network connections I will see my network named two time. "Connected to Network, Network1" When this happens I can not connect to the internet. I AM connected to the network and can see other PC's in the network. If I disable the device and re-enable it, this usually solves the issue.

I have a Compaq Presario V6105NR laptop and a Netgear WGT624 V3 router.

I have a dual install-Media CenterXP and Widows 7.In XP I can connect to my Netgear router and any unsecured network in range.In Windows 7 I can only connect to unsecured routers ,not my own Netgear router.Netgear says my firmware is up to date.My security is WPA-PSK{TKIP}

I have tried disabling my windows firewall and only just installed Avast antivirus but the problem was there before Avast and is still there.I have found others on this forum with the same weird problem but no solution.Can anyone help?

LAN Connects To Unidentified Network On Startup

Jan 4, 2010

I'm running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit on an ASUS laptop with a Realtek PCIe Gigabit Ethernet LAN. Every time I restart my computer the LAN connects to "linksys10" (the router it I want it to connect to) AND "Unidentified network". Both connections say Internet access, however I cannot get on-line until I go to the adapter settings>disable the LAN>then enable it again, then it connects only to the "linksys10" network and the Internet works fine.

The router I am connecting to is a Linksys WRT54GS (security disabled, SSID hidden). I have tried power cycling the router too.

It's very annoying to have to disable and enable the LAN device upon every startup. I tried uninstalling the device, then rebooting and have windows install the driver again for me. This did not work.

Then I downloaded the updated driver for windows 7 from the Realtek website, installed it, reboot my system, but I still have the same problem. I have no idea why it's connecting to two networks on startup.

Laptop Connects To Wireless Network But Not Internet?

Sep 11, 2011

My laptop does not connect to the internet on the wireless networks in my flat. It will connect to the network, but will not have internet access. There are several unsecured wireless networks available run by the flat and I can't connect to the internet on any of them, whereas other members of the flats and my flatmates are able to. This suggests there is not a problem as such with the router, turning it off and on again has already been attempted. When I moved in, the man in charge of maintaining/organising etc the flats took my MAC address and allowed my laptop access. Yet I cannot connect to the internet. I went to my uni's library and connected to the internet no problem. I have tried turning off my internet security, looking at the properties of the wireless connection and attempting to edit settings (changing them back again afterwards), and nothing seems to be working.

Desktop Connects To Wireless Network, But Not To Internet

I have a Dell XPS 8300 (running Windows 7 Home Premium) that has lost Internet access. It was fine until yesterday. It shows that it's connected to my home wireless network, but cannot acces the Internet. All our other computers (desktops, laptops & iPad - all running different OS) are able to connect.

I checked the network card, using the Windows Device Manager, and it shows that it is "working properly" and that there are no conflicting devices. What should I do next?

Advanced Wireless Network Windows XP Connects But Windows 7 Won't?

Sep 25, 2011

My D-Link rooter is driving me nuts! Basically I have many computers in my home and I seem to have an issue with encryption and compatibility.I have.My Works PC - Dell Dimension 1100 Windows XP Pro My Works Laptop - Compaq Presario Windows XP Pro My Rig - Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit My Tablet PC - Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit My Partners Laptop - Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit My iPhone 4 My Rooter - D-Link DSL-2640R With the default settings in the rooter (Mixed WPA, WPA2) My iPhone, Works PC and Works Laptop connects to the wireless network no problem, it appears they are using WPA mode whilst connected. However my Windows 7 machines are all seeing the network as WPA2. When I attempt to connect to the network it fails on all Windows 7 Machines.I can only seem to connect the Windows 7 machines if I change from "Mixed WPA, WPA2" to "WPA2 Only" which then knocks out all the Windows XP machines However if I disable wireless encryption, which I don't particularly want to do. All the machines work correctly with no problems!I do have a function for "Guest Network" which broadcasts a 2nd separate SSID, but you cant use encryption on it. That could run the Windows 7 Machines but the problem is I don't know how secure it is.

Unable To Connect To Wifi - No Network Access/limited Access

Nov 10, 2011

Last night I was on the internet at home absolutely fine and my laptop automatically downloaded an update, since then I have been unable to connect to my wi-fi. I deleted the updates and was still unable to connect, so I tried to used a system recovery restore point and every one I use starts but fails to complete.So, I did a factory reset after around 8 hours of trying to sort it out today and I STILL have the same problem. I can plug in the cable to connect and my housemate is having absolutely no issues connecting and neither is my phone so now I am at a total loss what I should do to resolve this. Prior to the factory reset I was able to connect to the wi-fi but it was stating no network access/limited access and now it simply won't connect to my internet at all. It finds my full strength signal but will not connect.My drivers for the Broadcom 4313 802.11b/g/n card are the most up to date and the laptop (HP G62) says it is working fine.

Unidentified Network; No Network Access - Powerline Adapters

Dec 1, 2011

Today, I managed to redecorate my bedroom; where my computer sat on top of a shaky, wooden desk. That desk is now gone, caput, and replaced by a much bigger, sturdier and prettier glass replacement.Before I dissasembled the computer to re-decorate, I was able to browse the internet at ease. There were no problems at all...However, after the new desk was setup - and all wires replaced in their correct slots, I find that I am unable to connect to the internet, or even the house's network! For the past year, I have been wired to the router using a RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC. It was plugged into an extension cord, in my room, into the Ethernet port in the back of my computer. Downstairs, it's twin was situated no less than 2 feet away from the router - plugged into the first port.Now, when I boot up the computer, the network notification presents the following message: "Unidentified Network. No network access", and sometimes presents a yellow ! next to it. So, I am reduced to typing on my mother's laptop - which has no problems connecting to the network.I am able to use the ipconfig /release command, but unable to use the /renew - it hangs in the command prompt, then tells me that the DHCP server cannot be located. The IP, beforehand, was reverted to 169.254.223.117 - before all of this, I was 192.168.0.5?

Unidentified Network No Network Access

I have 2 different laptops. both running Windows7 and connecting to the internet wirelessly. within a few days of each other they both began to display "Currently connected to: Unidentified network No network access" and they will not let me get on the internet. It is not my router becuase It shows the same thing no matter where I try to connect. I have tried my gym and a local restaurant that I have always had success connecting to before. Furthermore my WindowsXP desktop is directly connected and is connecting to the internet without any problems. My laptops are both running AVG for antivirus.

Unidentified Network - No Network Access

Dec 31, 2011

Yesterday it worked and when I booted today it didn't I have absolutely no idea what the problem is and I have checked everything I know with no use.

- I am using d-Lan (PowerLan) and have had no problems with it until today.

- My router, modem and the d-lan devices are functioning properly which I have tested multiple times so I'm sure the problem lies with my computer.

- I have tried Troubleshooting with no effect

- It isn't an IP conflict

- It isn't a 3rd party program (I started it in safe mode, same problem)

- Internet still works over my W-Lan but is incredibly slow and unstable

Can't Access A Pc In The Network

Mar 15, 2011

The company that i work for has just bought five new HP Compaq 6000 Pro running Win7 64bit (one for each department i.e. Trade Finance, Operations, Compliance, Accounts & Credit). I created standard user account for each member of the respective departments as well as admin account for myself. I setup a workgroup to connect all PCs to share a printer that is connected directly to one of the PC (Credit dept).

Here's the problem:

Three of the PCs (Trade Finance, Operations & Compliance) can access Credit PC and vice versa without any problem. However, Accounts PC will get an error message: "Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer" everytime trying to access Credit PC when login as standard user. But when I login as admin, I don't get any error whatsoever. Same thing happen when I login from Credit PC and access Accounts PC. No error.

I have disabled the firewall for both Accounts & Credit PCs and even changed all user accounts for Accounts PC to admin but still keep geeting the same error message.

HDD - No Access On Network

Aug 21, 2009

I have this machine and an XP machine on my network. The XP machine has the link layer hotfix installed for SP3. Both machines are fully updated.

Now I had a couple of hard drives shared and the XP machine had access to them without any issues at all. I needed more space on the music drive which was an external USB drive. I bought a Western Digital 500Gb internal sata drive and installed it. I moved the music to the new drive and shared the drive the same as the other drives were shared.

This is where it gets weird. The new drive shows up as a network location on the XP machine however it cannot be accessed. I get an error saying I need to make sure I have proper privileges. I do have them because the drive has full access for everyone assigned to it in permissions. The XP machine can still access the other drive I have shared with all my videos on it. So the problem is only with the new drive and all of the settings check out.

Anyone else have this kind of problem?

No Network Access?

Jul 11, 2012

I have two internet connections, BSNL Broadband and Reliance Netconnect. I have been using both connections since last year and I have never faced this problem of "Unidentified network" and "No network connection". It was only in June this year that I began facing this problem. When my BSNL is connected, my PC does not detect it yet I can access internet. The networking icon in the task bar shows a Yellow Caution sign. When I use Reliance Netconnect, I can access internet but now, the yellow caution does not even appear, in fact there is a red cross. I have tried numerous trouble shooting steps like the cmd commands, disabling and enabling network adapters, etc but to no avail. However, when I put this in cmd "netsh winsock reset catalog", Reliance suddenly showed as active when I rebooted my PC. The Origin service of Electronic Arts happily went online. Then I disconnected Reliance and tried BSNL but no luck there. I reverted to Reliance and again the same problem. I repeated the steps again but still the same problem.

No Network Access On 2nd Nic

Jan 4, 2010

Have 2 nics, 1 for INTERNET and 1 for intranet. Internet works fine until I set up #2 with default gateway then I get a error message when leaving properties box. something about redundant default gateways. If I leave this in place #1 network stops working. I have tried to just setting #2 to auto both ip and gateway. I can't even ping the server. It doesn't leave the computer.

I thought it was the nic card because i riped it out of the old computer and the driver wouldn't work for the Windows 7. So I bought a new one that was compatible with Windows 7. Nothing has worked. The problem is that this is not my computer it's my wifes, and she's not a happy camper. This set-up worked on the XP that was taken out of service and replaced with the Windows 7.

I cannot get access to the network period, even though the computer has a valid IP configuration via DHCP.The strange thing is that Windows 7 says that it has internet access up until the point I try to access the network or internet with any application. IE causes a loss in connection, Firefox, Windows Updates, etc.So I have tried this so far at the command prompt to no avail.netsh int ip resetandnetsh winsock resetWhat do you all think?

I have just moved from Beta to RC and while it looked like everything is OK, I'm having this strange problem where my Weatherbug and XM gadgets will not work UNLESS I connect to a VPN. I have disabled the firewall, purged the DNS cache, disabled / re-enabled the NICs, but the problem remains. I have tried this on multiple networks on both my Ethernet and wireless connections (Dell D630 notebook) and get the same result. Any ideas? I'm not even sure where to start looking!

One more thing: I did perform an upgrade install from Beta x64 to RC x64 instead of the "demanded" clean install.

Network - XP Cannot Access Win7

Jun 9, 2009

I am having an apparently common problem: my Windows 7 machine can access my XP/SP3 laptop just fine but though the XP can see the Windows 7, it can't access it at all. What I get is...[Windows 7 machine] is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource... yada yada yada.

I've looked up the topic and this phrase and find lots of answers, some ridiculously complex (registry hacks?), most of them contradicting each other. Nothing I've found offers a step-by-step how-to.

I'm one of those who skipped Vista, so I'm not familiar with all the new security. When my home network was all XP, I just connected a computer to the workgroup, gave folder permissions, and go. (I don't use passwords.)

So how do I do it now?

There are/will be a lot of us moving to 7 straight from XP, and we need some sort of "you used to do this, now you must do this" type of guide.

Cannot Access Network Shares

Jul 10, 2009

I have a linux samba share setup that I use for my file server. It's setup for guest access.

Recently when I tried accessing the server, it asked me for a username and password, which it shouldn't. So I typed in guest, didn't work, I typed in the root account, didn't work.

My roommate can still access the server just fine. I checked all the permissions on the linux box, and it has to be an issue with my computer. I had my roommate setup a shared folder on his computer, and I couldn't access it either.

I'm not sure what happened to cause this... one day it worked, the next day it didn't. I tried a system restore thinking maybe some update caused an issue, but that didn't do anything. I've checked various registry keys, made sure the proper services are running. I'm lost as to what could be causing this...

No Network Access To Samba

Aug 16, 2009

I have a major problem. My Windows 7 RC Build 7100 can't suddenly connect to my linux server via Samba at all. It's been running for month doing just fine.

It's a wired connection. I can logon via SSH, browse public web folders, and ping host <-> client, both IP address and netbios name. However Samba is dead silent when trying to map a share.

I have checked the LAN configuration + Local Security Policy. Turning off the Windows firewall doesn't do a thing either.

When checking network, "net view 192.168.0.2", it returns "System error 53 has occurred. The network path was not found."

Googling the above message mentions a "DNS problem", but I don't have a clue what to do next.

Can't Access A Network Device

Apr 4, 2012

I have a projector on my network which has LAN connectivity for the purpose of emailing error messages (ie. lamp due to be changed). The connection path is as follows:Using cat5e, I've connected the projector to a 5-Port Linksys SD205 where there are other devices connected. The SD205 is connected to a 24-Port Zyxel via cat5e which is where all network devices meet.The projector is properly configured with IP information. I am unable to ping the projector through the network. The port to which it is connected gets a brief, intermittent flash. If I connect the projector directly to the Zyxel switch, I can ping it and access it via IE.I thought the same so I swapped it out with a 8-Port Linksys EZXS88W but still get the same results.Perhaps it is a quirk with Linksys, so I swap out the switch with a 3com and still the same results.Why would this device connect when directly connected to the ZyXEL but not when going through the Linksys SD205? What does the intermittent flashing light on the Linksys SD205 mean?

2.can I not make "my documents" available to my wife and my laptop, and vice versa if they are swtiched on?

Home Network Two PC's But Only One Can Access Other

Aug 9, 2012

I have two HP desktops running Windows 7. One is connected by wire to my router because the router is right near that PC. The other PC is downstairs and connected wirelessly. There is also a Mac downstairs, connected by wire. We also have an internet TV, Playstation 3, smart phones and tablets. All of these last items connect wirelessly to the network without problems. The HP PC downstairs can see and access my PC upstairs, as well as all my external drives, media server etc. I can see and access the Mac. I do see the other HP PC in my network folder, but when I try to access it, it won't work.I have discovery turned on on both. Strange thing is that sometimes, it works. But only now and then, and there doesn't seem to be any reason to this.

I thought that maybe mixing wired and wireless devices could be a problem, but all the other devices are fine. Also, I forgot that I sometimes use my Vista laptop, and that connects fine to other devices. It's only that one PC downstairs that I can't access. Is there a way to remove it from the network folder and maybe have windows 'find' it again?
