Network / Sharing :: Unable To Share Internet Connection Via Ethernet Cable

Oct 16, 2013

I have been having issues with sharing my internet connection via an ethernet cable. I read online that there is the ability to 'share' your internet connection. I have learned how to do this, but it doesnt work for me. I tried connecting my laptop. I went through everything and I was able to get the connection (it showed the LAN connectivity icon) however, there was the little yellow triangle next to it. I waited but it won't connect. What I am trying to do with this is be able to play multiplayer on computer games with other computers on my LAN. I also tried to connect my XBox 360 with this, but it doesnt have an internet connection.

Things to keep in mind The only way I could get a good internet service was through my cell phone service provider, so I get my internet connection through my phone via USB tethering

All of the computers I am trying this on have Windows 8 Pro, except for one

Network / Sharing :: Internet Not Working With Ethernet Cable (Atheros AR8161)

Jul 7, 2013

I'm having problems with my Asus NV56VM laptop (windows 8). Whenever I try to use an ethernet cable to access internet I either get a SSL-error, the website doesn't load at all or it loads VERY slowly and not the whole website (it says that I have internet acces and that it's not limited). Wireless works fine though.

I've also tested playing some games (ex Call of duty) and it works fine for like five minutes and then I get an error message saying something about packages didn't receive correctly. So I'm guessing it have to do with not all information is transferred when I use ethernet.

According to the Device Manager I use "Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)" and the drivers is up to date.

Things I've tried:

Using a different ethernet cable.
Testing it on a different network (at my friends house)
Reinstalling drivers (both from Asus website and from Qualcomm's).
Disable wireless
Empty cache/cookies
Restarting computer/router/modem
Turning off firewall
Searching for virus (didn't find any)
Ipconfig /release /renew
Tested it on different browsers (I also affects games though)
Formatting my laptop
SSL and TSL is enable

Network / Sharing :: Ethernet Cable Not Detected - Windows 8.1

May 28, 2014

The cable works on a different computer, the computer gets wireless fine (typing to you from it) but will not read an ethernet cable. The motherboard manual (built the PC myself from components) says an LED should light-up if an ethernet cable is connected, no such LED appears when I connect the cable.

Network / Sharing :: Ethernet Cable Plugged In / Windows Says Not

Jul 7, 2014

I went to a PC-Shop that fixed it by putting another driver on the PC.But now I have a new PC and after 6 months without any problems Windows suddenly decides there is no ethernet cable plugged in the PC. I've googled for hours and hours trying diffrent things, but nothing seems to work . The cable itself is fine because when I plug it into my laptop it works fine. I've updated my driver, deleted it and try to reinstall, which also failed. I tried out some commands through CMD, which also failed.

It is a custom-build PC with a Asus Z87-A motherboard (in-case that's necessary to know) and the driver that's installed is Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. OS: Windows 8.1.

Network / Sharing :: Fresh Install Of 8.1 - Ethernet Cable Unplugged?

Apr 7, 2014

I had a hard drive crash the other week and I got a new one and went on and upgraded to windows 8.1 64bit. Well I had a hard time getting it to work correctly but now it seems to start up fine with no BSOD.

My problem I'm having now, is that my internet will not work on it, unless I plug in a wireless for it.

My mobo is rather old, (msi k9a2 platinum) and it uses a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller on it. I first tried to go and upgrade the drivers. It said I had the newest. Though upon reading online I see that they have upgraded the driver for the Realtek to the driver on 2/18/2014. Well I uninstall my old driver, restart the computer then install the new one from the Realtek website. Then do a restart and still nothing.

It looks like the router is getting pinged or something as it will start flashing in the bottom right with the triangle with the ! in it, about three times then go back to the x in the red circle. In the device Manager the realtek pcie gbe family controller doesn't have the yellow triangle with the ! in it showing that something is wrong. But it's not even reading the ethernet cable is plugged in. I tried detecting the problem and that is all it says is to plug the cable in.

I restarted the computer again and noticed that the number showed up on my router that the computer was connected. When the computer was starting windows with the blue windows logo with the balls circling at the bottom, about half way through the router dropped the number and it doesn't come back up after I unlock the computer.

So I followed the sticky and got the cmd prompt and this is what it is showing...

Network / Sharing :: WiFi Unstable - Yet Ethernet Cable Is Top Speed

Jan 27, 2014

Since yesterday the internet began to act unsoundly (through WiFi). As in I never had this problem before. There were periods where it was fast enough to play some online games, watch Youtube no problem, and then it would shut off randomly. So since yesterday I have been restarting the modem with only very short term resolutions to the issue.

I accessed the modem through my web browser and it says the connection is always working fine. Despite that, I called my ISP and they claimed there was an issue, and forwarded it to Deutsche Telekom. Since then I did some experimenting and plugged my computer into the modem with the ethernet cable.

Boom. No problem whatsoever. It's been top speed and reliable.

I downloaded and installed updates for Windows today. There are 18 optional ones that I did not download yet, but I did download and install the important ones no problem. I checked the network adapters and they all state "The best driver for your software is already installed."

Network / Sharing :: How To Share Folder Between Several Computers Via Wireless

Aug 2, 2013

I have several computers on my local wireless network:

- Windows 8 Pro
- Windows Vista
- Windows XP
- Mac OS X

Right now to copy file from one to another I use USB Flash key which is pretty time consuming, especially if I have to do it 100 times a day.

So I was thinking, is there any way to share a single folder for read/write access among all those computers?

Network / Sharing :: Wireless Signal Boost To Low Signal From Cable TV?

Aug 5, 2014

We have a nice signal from the router until about the same time each day. Only cable tv modem is available. Evidently the country neighbors do lots of internet during the afternoon.

Is there a way to boost the signal coming down the cable line ? The cable tv company has installed new cables from the pole into the house. We have installed all new cables in the house.

All of the boosters I've seen are for after the wireless signal gets to the cable modem.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 PC Won't Share Internet (3G USB Modem)

Jun 27, 2013

I have a windows 8 laptop with a 3G USB modem. I'm trying to share it's internet connection via my wifi network. The other two pc's on the network runs XP and Vista.

I've managed to get the network working, all pc's see each other and they can share files, etc, but just the damn internet won't share.

I've changed my router to use the same ip range as the wifi on the windows 8 pc, 192.168.137.x. I've ensured that the modem's network connection is shared. all the pc's belong to the same workgroup called, WORKGROUP.

In services i have ICS running, i've tried restarting this service.

What bothers me is that my wifi network on my windows 8 pc shows as "unidentified network", even though i have made sure that everything is set to shared that should be set to shared. so i don't know if that could be part of the problem?

I've also tried setting up the vista pc with a static ip and setting it's default gateway and primary dns to the same ip as the Windows 8 pc.

Attached are screenshots of my ipconfig.

Network / Sharing :: Ethernet Adapter - Internet Having Invalid IP Configuration

Oct 16, 2013

I upgraded to windows 8 and have had no problem when I booted up my compaq presario. I was not online went to the control panel to troubleshoot my internet connection and was told that my Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration and that "Default gateway" is not available. I am hardwired into my AT&T router (the same router that is serving three other laptops in my home without any problems). I downloaded the v1.7.0.0 driver but I'm not sure if it installed as I am still having to manually reset my ethernet adaptor via the control panel each time I restart the computer.

Network / Sharing :: Wireless Internet Slow On W8 Pc?

Dec 7, 2013

I am using a Windows 8 pro pc connected to the internet wireless. My modem is a 802.11g and my speed should be 8 mb down 1 mb up. However, on the PC I am only getting 1.2mb down, 0.5 mb up on speedtest. When I open a W7 HP laptop, I do get about 8 mb down as stated. Weirdly it is only affecting my pc. I have run the test continuously between the PC and the laptop and the laptop perform better. Tried IE and FF, the speed is slow. My PC specs should be good enough for a fast connection. No folding or torrent or whatever is running in the background, yet the pc is slow. The ping time is faster than the laptop at 42 ms.

Audio :: LG TV Not Playing Sound When Connected Via HDMI Cable

Mar 8, 2014

As the title says, I've tried connecting my TV to my computer with an HDMI cable, and the video part works, but no sound plays. When I checked the list of playback devices, the TV appeared (as shown below), but it apparently cannot play sound.

I don't think I know anything beyond what I've posted,

Also, as a side note - I am completely unable to interact with any of these objects - I cannot set something as a default device; there is no response when I do it, and disabling the audio device only works until current sources of sound (like videos) are restarted.

Virtualization :: XP VM Under Windows 8 Shows Network Cable Unplugged

Aug 22, 2012

I'm not much of a VM expert. I have a couple of win7 systems running a WinXP VM that I installed manually, in all those cases, the virtual network has always just booted up and worked. Under Windows 8 Pro-RTM, I did a XP VM that I loaded myself (versus an XP mode) and it loads the virtual network adapter but it reports that the cable is unplugged

I'm not clear on what this means. Obviously, it's a VM so there is no cable to plug in. I'm guessing I'm suppose to match that Virtual Nic to the regular (aka Host's) NIC but I'm not see any options to do so.

On the same system I run windows 7 Ult and a XP install and the network loads up on boot.

Restore Sound Playback On External Monitor - HDMI Cable

Feb 19, 2014

I sometimes plug in my LCD TV via HDMI cable to my laptop. I use it as a second monitor. The sound used to go to the TV as well. However, I inadvertently deleted the sound "profile" for the external monitor and I can't get it back. (I've attached a screen shot showing where the other profiles are, but missing the external monitor one).

How do I restore it so that when I plug in the HDMI cable the sound will go to the external monitor?

Network / Sharing :: PC To PC File Transfers Count Towards Cable Data Usage?

Just curious ... do PC-to-PC file transfers count towards cable Internet service usage? For instance, if I move 10 GB of data from one PC to another in my Homegroup, is that 10 GB counted as part of the 100GB+ of cable data that I've used?

I took a 10:42 minute video with my camera. It's 1.28 GB and the file type MTS. The issue is I need to email it and it's too big of a file to send whole. I'm not in favor of chopping it up, but will if this is the best idea. I want to keep the video private between a few people. I am aware most place such as youtube, vimeo(not enough space) and dropbox all have privacy settings. Though waiting eight hours for an upload is a bit lengthy.

How To Set Up Router - Ethernet Adapter Not Working

Jun 29, 2014

I'm trying to set up a router, but the setup keeps telling me that my Ethernet adapter is not working. The Ethernet adapter troubleshooting tells me that the computer is configured correctly but the DNS server is not responding. (During this time the Internet is working as I have the cable plugged in to the computer.) I have the adapter set to automatically find the DNS server. I have run ipconfig/flushdns and ipconfig /registerdns to no avail. Do I need to get another network adapter? My laptop is probably at least 6 years old, and this problem started after I upgraded to 8 from XP - I had the router set up just fine on the old version.

Network / Sharing :: How To Share Files On Windows 8

May 19, 2013

I have been trouble sharing files with windows 8. I basically went into network & sharing center and turned all of the options to ON (or yes, whatever lol).

The machines are both running windows 8 on a wifi network.

I noticed a few things: If you right click the wireless network, you can "toggle" and turn on/off file sharing. This is a tad confusing, windows 7 never had this option. Also, do you need to be on a "homegroup" in order to share on windows 8?

There are a million variables!

Variable 1: Variable 1 is comprised of a million different variables and is the "network and sharing center". I Have all options set to "On", and still can't share.

Variable 2: Variable 2 is the right clicking on the WiFi network and clicking "turn network sharing on or off". Mine is set to off at the moment, but why is this separate from variable 1?

Variable 3: The final variable I can think of having a homegroup. I don't have a homegroup setup right now, do I need all machines to be on a homegroup to start file sharing between computers?

What I want: I want to be able to share entire computer contents between machines.

Back in the windows 7 days I used to be able to hit "run" and type in //computerame/c$ and I had complete file access to other computers on the network. How to accomplish that with Windows 8? That way I can access all files, not just "shares" on computers on the network.

PS: Right now, when I try to connect to other machines on the network, I get a username/password prompt. No matter what I input I get an error and it won't work.

Network / Sharing :: Ethernet Port Not Working

Oct 18, 2013

just noticed my Vaio ethernet port isn't working. it says the adaptor is working normally, but when I plug in an ethernet cable is says the cable is not plugged in. I tried it with two different cables that work elsewhere.

I wonder if the laptop ethernet card is faulty? Wireless is working fine.

I only ever use it to hard connect the router during setup, so it could have been out of order even before my Win7 to 8.1 upgrade.
