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

Oct 13, 2013

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?

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 - Operating System Doesn't Detect Network Cable

Dec 15, 2013

I re-installed Windows 8 yesterday evening (thought it would be quicker than to cleanup and fix my old install) and then directly upgraded it to Windows 8.1. The problem I am experiencing is quite weird: The Operating System doesn't detect the network cable.

With that being said, do not jump straight to the "Did you turn it on and off again" questions. Here is what I have done so far:

Hardware-Side: Cross-check the cable with another computer --> Working fineCross-check the wall plug with another computer --> Working fineTest the connection with the BIOS's connection diagnostic utility --> Link detected

Software-Side: Checking if Windows was up to date --> Nothing to updateUpdating the motherboard's BIOS --> Not betterUpdating the LAN's drivers with the ones I found on the manufacturer's website --> Not better

I am wondering what is wrong with my installation. It was working A1 a few days ago, except for the issues I re-installed the operating system for.

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: How To Disable Password Access To File And Printer Sharing

Feb 6, 2013

I am in the midst of the final steps in setting my my new Win 8 system.

I have a Win XP and Win 8 computer on my home network. I believe that I have set up file and printer sharing correctly. I can access the files and printer on the XP system from the Win 8 system. However, when I attempt to access the Win 8 files from the Win XP system, I get a long delay (about a minute or two) and then it asks me for the User Name & Password. I enter them and then and it works fine.

If I try to print on the printer attached to the Win 8 system from the XP system, I get a printer error unless I have already signed in with the ID & PW when accessing files. It never asks me for an ID & PW before attempting to print.

On the Win 8 system, I have selected "Turn off password protected sharing" in the "Network and Sharing Center/Advanced Sharing Settings".

The Win XP system has previously been correctly sharing files and printers with another XP system for some time and I haven't changed any settings on the XP computer.

Both the XP and Win 8 systems are assigned the same Workgroup name.

Network / Sharing :: File Sharing With Password Protection From Windows 8

Jun 8, 2013

I would like to make a folder share from a tablet with windows 8 with password protected to a laptop of windows 7 and another of vista. I have followed the tutorial of File Sharing - "Share with" & "Stop Sharing" in Windows 8. My PCs have been set in the same workgroup and same user account, network discovery and file and printer sharing turned on. At the first time, it is OK for windows 7. However after some changes of account (delete and create them on both windows 8 and windows 7), it doesn't work anymore with the error from windows 7 "Login failure: user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer" whenever password protected turned on in windows 8 and only OK when password turned off.

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.

Network / Sharing :: File And Folder Sharing?

Mar 11, 2013

On my home network there are Windows 8-A, Windows 8-B and W7 machines. There is no problem networking among these machines except from Windows 8-A to W7. The shared folders on the W7 are displayed on Windows 8-A but if I attempt to click-open any one of them no ID/PW is asked for and the following message is displayed:

"You do not have permission to access . . . . . Contact your network administrator . . . "

Windows 8-A <--> Windows 8-B OK
Windows 8-B <--> W7 OK
Windows 8-A <-- W7 OK
Windows 8-A --> W7 NG

Windows 8-B and W7 are logged in by the same ID and password, but Windows 8-A is logged in by a different ID and PW. I can open any folder of the W7 from Windows 8-A *if* Windows 8-A is logged in by the same ID and PW as for W7/Windows 8-B.

Maintenance :: 100% Disk Usage During File Transfer

Mar 29, 2014

I found a lot of 100% disk usage problems and their solutions, but none of them could fix mine.

So here is my issue : every time I copy files from one disk to another or even within the same disk among partitions and install a program/game, my computer becomes extremely slow. A single click is responded after 3-4 seconds. When I open control panel, it shows 100% disk usage. As soon as the file transfer gets over, everything becomes normal.

My problem is not my transfer speed. It is that while a transfer is happening, nothing else works. Even though the transfer rate is 6 -7 mbps

Maintenance :: High RAM Usage During File Transfer

Dec 18, 2013

In window 7 it uses maximum 2gb of ram when transfering big file, say an example a movie size of 8gb. now in windows 8 it seems it uses 6-8GB its as if file is transfered into ram first and then slowly copy into targeted disk. just what is going on here and why microsoft decided to do this? if power goes out then all the files is gone and the entire process is actually slower imho.

Is there anyway to disable this? or revert it back to similar what 7 had?

I'm not sure if I'm using File History properly, even though it seems to be a plug-and-play type of feature. The situation is: when I leave my USB Flash Memory device plugged into the laptop, and the frequency of backup is set to every 10 minutes, it seems that some of the memory is being nibbled away at, even though I haven't created or changed any files.

Network / Sharing :: Useless PC As File Server?

May 21, 2013

So I have the piece of crap PC known as the Archos 9. Never use it anymore because I got a real laptop.

I just bought a WD My passport 1tb hard drive. So I want to use it as an external network drive.

I would leave my Archos 9 in a corner somewhere with the HD connected,with file sharing. It is touchscreen and has only a built in mouse. No keyboard.

How would I be able to set it up? It overheat sometimes and lags like hell. Has no Fan which might make it suitable for being in a dark corner

Any OS's that don't strain the system a lot and are not outdated? I heard of some other OS's that do this really well,with not much power usage.

Network / Sharing :: File Permissions And Read Only?

Jun 18, 2013

Two user accounts, both administrator level. I have a file in my documents that my wife's account can READ but cannot SAVE. I've gone in through User Accounts and given her account full permissions (full control with all the boxes checked), but it always reverts back to her not being able to save any file in my directory.

FWIW, I have all accounts on a separate D: drive. Only windows 8 and programs are on C:.

Also, Read only status. I see the dot (not a check) when I select properties from "my documents". I remove the dot, task window comes up and all the file names whiz by. Then, I look and ... again, the dot is present.

What is the purpose of the dot vs the check mark. They seem to have the identical effect on sub-directories and files within sub-directories.

Network / Sharing :: How To Share File From Vista To 8.1

I'm having trouble sharing files from my Vista Laptop to my new Win 8.1 laptop. I can get into my shared public folder but nothing else. I want to be able to get at anything in my C drive but it says I don't have permissions. I have a home wireless network but I also hooked them together with an Ethernet cord and both networks are showing.

Last week I was running into a window asking for network credentials on the Vista laptop (but I didn't know what it meant because I never had a password ). This time I see the folders I've shared but can't get into them except Public folder.

Network / Sharing :: How To Share File With Win7 Machine

Aug 18, 2013

I had to buy a new laptop that I could take with me to work, and of course it runs Windows 8 (which I absolutely hate, incidentally). I decided it would be nice if I could share files with my primary computer when I'm at home, which is a desktop running dual-boot Win7 and Ubuntu.

I initially set up a homegroup, but whenever I try to access laptop files from my desktop it always pops up with a "enter network username and password" dialog. I tried looking up solutions to that but so far haven't found anything that works. I made sure the clocks on both computers were the same, and I made sure that all network settings were the same on both, including the setting "do not use user accounts/passwords," but I'm still having the issue.

So, what's the best way for me to share/sync files on my laptop with the desktop's files while I'm at home?
