Manually Modify Windows 8 Wireless Network Profile

Aug 20, 2012

I ran into a problem today where I entered in some details incorrectly to a hidden wireless network profile and then discovered that MS have removed the Wireless Network Manager so I couldn't delete or correctly configure that network as it would not get listed in the metro wireless interface.

After digging around on my machine I've discovered the wireless profiles are stored in

C:ProgramDataMicrosoftWlansvcProfilesInterfac es

Where the first sub folders list guides for respective wireless devices on you machine which contains xml files pertaining to the wireless profiles for the respective wireless devices. it seems same to manually delete the files or edit.

Network / Sharing :: 8.1 Change Network Profile From Public To Private

Oct 22, 2013

I am trying to change my wireless network profile from public to private, but cannot for the life of me figure out how...

Network Location - Set to Private or Public in Windows 8

^^ Those instructions no longer work on 8.1, and when I go into PC Settings > Network > Tap my network I see no options to enable sharing. I don't have Pro on this particular tablet so I have no access to gpedit.msc nor secpol.msc. What the hell do I have to do to change it? Other than this one ridiculous fault, I think 8.1 is far better than 8 (so far anyway.)

Network / Sharing :: IP Settings Can't Be Changed After Manually Set

Nov 18, 2012

I do a lot of AV system programming, which generally involves having to set my IP address for either my Ethernet port or WiFi card to manual IPs temporarily. I am having an issue on a relatively clean install of Windows 8 Pro that after I change my IP, when I go back into TCP/IP v4 to change it back to DHCP, it is already set to automatic... but if I right click on the connection icon and go to Status, it still has the static address. I tried to set it to another manual address and to hopefully go back in to revert, but that doesn't work.

The ONLY thing that seems to work is removing the NIC from Device Manager and then re-scanning for hardware changes where it will be automatically detected with DHCP enabled by default.

WiFi card is Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN.

Ethernet NIC is a Broadcom NetXtreme 57??.

I've got the latest available drivers, and using generic ones doesn't work. It's also on both NICs so I don't it is a driver issue.

Network / Sharing :: How To Change Network Profile Name

Mar 6, 2014

So Right now my wifi network shows as "Wireless_Home_Network 5"

I don't have any other wifi networks saved.

How do I get rid of the "5"?

I changed routers several times which is why I'm at "5", but the SSID and password were always the same, I don't know where this "5" is coming from?

Under my network profile it says "Wireless_Home_Network". So again, I don't know where the "5" is coming from?

Network / Sharing :: Random Network Disconnect To Wireless Network Printer?

Feb 27, 2013

This morning I installed an optional update from Windows Update. It was Ralink Technology WLAN 802.11 wireless LAN card.

Since then, when I try to print to my wireless network printer, the network would disconnect then come back on after a while. The update shows up in Update History as successfully installed but not in the installed updates. System restore is of no support here. The network configuration page shows normal. The web does not appear to be affected. I made a new network connection for the printer but it did not work.

Is there a way to reverse this update or should I uninstall the 802.11 LAN card and let windows re-install anew.

The printer is a HP Officejet Pro 8600e

Windows 8 - Can't Modify Networked HDD

Jun 6, 2013

Just got a new pc that has W8, came from XP. I have a popcorn hour NMT with an internal HDD that I have networked and was working fine with my old pc. The drive is mapped and is visible in windows explorer and I can even upload files to it with Filezilla. When I try to modify a file through w explorer it shows the drive as read only. Below is what I have tried so far and nothing seems to work.

-Installed "take ownership" program
-Enabled hidden administrator account
-Tried to take ownership through properties/security/advanced
-Change permissions in properties (goes through all of the files and unchecks read only but when I close and open it again read only is checked)

For some reason I can't seem to get a full administrator account to work. I am the only user of the pc and I have an administrator account but it's standard.

Network / Sharing :: Wireless And Wired Network Limited After Sleep Mode?

Apr 13, 2014

Since a few weeks, I have a problem with my laptop running Windows 8.1 (Toshiba Satellite P50-A-12PBE). Sometimes, after bringing Windows back from sleep mode, I seem to have no connection to the internet. Windows says the connection is 'limited', wether I'm connected with a wire or wireless. Resetting the router doesn't solve anything, but rebooting my pc does. Since both the wired and wireless network are always simultaneously affected, I think this hasn't anything to do with drivers (I already have the latest versions by the way). I have made screenshots with ipconfig-results when I'm connected with a wire.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 - Intermittent Wireless Connectivity

Mar 1, 2014

I have a PC and a tablet, both of which have Windows 8.1 installed, and are regularly updated. I prefer using the wireless connection on my PC, although I do have an active wired connection. Is there a setting somewhere that disables the wired connection automatically when the wireless is active, and also switches back to wired if the wireless disconnects? I have looked into Group Policy Editor at the wireless and wired LAN settings under Network Connections, but don't see any setting to do this automatically.

I've never tried to connect to it. Once it's connected however, with limited connectivity, I don't have the ability to right click on it and say "Forget this network" or do anything to it such as when I connect to another wireless it says:

Network / Sharing :: How To Refresh Wireless Networks In Windows 8

Jun 15, 2013

In prior versions of Windows before Windows 8, it was very easy to refresh your network list. This would allow you to see ALL of wireless networks in your area that your WiFi card could detect.

My Windows 8 only allows me to see the wireless networks that it wants me to see.

How do I see all Windows 8 networks within range? I have searched but I cannot find anything.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Wireless Adapter Dropping?

Jul 7, 2014

This is a 6 month Old Gateway Laptop, Windows 8 preinstalled. Broadcom Network Adapter.

I have a Buffalo WZR-300GB Router (2.4mHz, with 802.1/ 11g/b/n) all working. There are 4 wired and 3 wireless computers on the network. Wife's Gateway (Windows 8) is the ONLY one with [wireless]dropped connections. No MOVE has been made with Her Laptop or the Router.

This is the troubleshooting I've have done so far.

Uninstalled/reinstalled network adapters.Reset the adapters. Scanned Hardware changes (before/after) in the Device ManagerTurned off Power Management.Disabled the Lan (wired) connection-adapter.Removed (Forget this Connection) 2 other wireless connections from outside the home.Wireless Adapters are set to "Maximum Performance" under (edit power plan).Moved to Laptop (actually the 1st thing I did) to 2 different locations with same results, dropped connection.Under settings the Topology is all Checked, Except 2 I have never seen before. Multi-Layer Protocol, and Kernel 64 something. Anyway, when I insert a check mark next to both. I'm Prompted "Do you really want to disable this connections?" I have done both (checked/unchecked) nothing changes.Under Device Manager: Restore all Hidden Adapters, About Five More adapter showed up I had never seen before. So then I Scanned for Hardware Changes. No effect!

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 - Wireless Disables Itself / Default Gateway

Nov 28, 2013

I had a previous thread with my Windows 8.1 OS (8.1 - Wireless Adapter shuts off). I thought it was solved, but after a couple of days, it happened again.

I reformated my System Partition, installed a clean Windows 8 Pro version (Because i didn't had the problem before i upgraded to Win 8.1) and now i have the same issues.

Installed the latest drivers from Intel (Didn't fix it)
Installed the drivers that came with my laptop for windows 8 (Didn't fix it)
Disabled the Power Management setting to turn of the adapter
Changed my DNS (Because i was also getting the 'Default Getaway' problem (Didn't fix it)
Did the DISM thing, nothing

I'm starting to think that this is a problem on the Hardware Level? I could try to go back to Windows 7, but i'm afraid i'll have the same problem...

Network / Sharing :: Wireless Printer Can Scan But Not Print In Windows 8.1

Apr 25, 2014

I've once again encountered this problem with my Canon PIXMA MP620 printer/scanner: when using it wirelessly, it can't print. According to 'Devices And Printers', it's offline and therefore most programs I use in Windows 8.1 claim it can't print.

However, using Canon's program 'MP Navigator', it can scan from the printer without any problems. I can scan from the computer to the printer and the other way around. Therefore I'm suspecting that the problems lies with Windows 8.1 and not the printer. The connection is obviously there but Windows doesn't seem to think so.

I can't find a solution in the printer's manual, Windows doesn't give me anything when I try to troubleshoot the printer in question, and Canon's own 'Network IJ Tool' can find the printer but says it's doesn't work without clarifying why.
