Recently I have been installed Windows Eight Pro 64-bit in two of my desktop computers. One pc having motherboard Intel DG41 and the other one is Asus Sabertooth P55i. I have two external Realtek NIC card installed in both of the pcs. When I was using Windows Seven 64-bit, I installed PPPOE as follows:
=> Conrtol Pannel => Network and Sharing Center => Setup a new connection or network => Connect to BROADBAND (PPPOE) [something like that]
But when I am trying to install pppoe on windows eight like the same process, it shows "Unable to install PPPOE" kinds of message and reboot. I thought the NIC card driver was not installed properly so I re-install the NIC card driver and again tried but it crashes and then reboot.
The funny part is, when I plugged the Ethernet cable into my built-in NIC card (the one that is embeded on Motherboard), it doesnt reboot and installed successfully. But I need to use the external NIC card and with that I am unable to connect to PPPOE.
I face the same problem in both of my pc and now I have to use the built-in NIC card. Is there any solution to use the external NIC??
Recently, something odd has been happening. On initial start up of my PC, the network fails. It will show the yellow exclamation point and show as limited. When this happens, I cant even ping my directly connected router. It shows as PING: Transmit failed. General Failure.
So far since this started happening, restarting works. Is there any way to figure out what the cause is? My drivers are up to date and it may have started when I updated to 8.1 but im not 100 percent sure. Not sure if there are any logs I can look at to see what isnt happening correctly when this occurs.
I have strange network problem these days. I have a desktop PC and installed Windows 8.1. And I have a LAN. The gateway IP address is 192.168.2.1.
The network works fine when I start the PC. I can access Internet with IE, I can access the config pages of my gateway and I can SSH my local File server. It's a synology ds212j. I assigned static IP address 192.168.2.18 to it and name it as "home_ds". I add dns entry in file "hosts".
But there will be very strange problems if the PC keeps running about 2/3 days. It seems I can't connect to other computers from my PC. No IE, no SSH, no ftp.... But ping still work. These is no network device listed in my network folder. But I still can access the mapped network drives.
For example, I can ping www.google.com, I can ping 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.2.18 and "home_ds".

But when I try to telnet and ssh, all failed.
I tried: telnet www.google.com 80 telnet 192.168.2.1 80 telnet 192.168.2.18 22 all failed.
I tied putty, msn, outlook,... all failed. But my wife's PC works normally at the same time.
In the network folder, there should be a list of all my network devices, including my wife's PC and my File server. But it's empty if this problem happens. However I can add them mannually and I can access the network drives.
And I can connect to my PC from my wife's PC with remote desktop.
If I logout and login again, the network will recover except 1 new problem. That is I can't access the network drives of my File Server with computer name "home_ds", but IP address works. And I can ping it with computer name.

A restart will solve both the above 2 problems. But I don't want to restart my PC so frequently.
I tried to solve this problem by update windows and drivers but failed.

Since I've got windows 8 nobody was able to connect to me via hamachi, though it works when two others who have windows 8 connect to each other, so i was looking for what was different, and apparently it doesnt let through any data when it's set to "public network".
The problem here is that usually you change it by clicking on the network symbol, right-clicking your network and turn sharing on or off, but hamachi makes up another network which isn't listed in the primary interface. I've tried many things already and I'm kind of looking for a direct cmd-Command which allows me to change it quickly.
So, basically, I try to change a network-setting from public to private without using the "normal way to do it".
I am trying to set up for media streaming from my PC to my Sony Blu-Ray player using the DNLA. I have a good network connection and have set up all permissions with Homeshare. I get everything done and when I go into Media Player and click on the Stream tab to turn on media streaming nothing happens. Also on my Blu-Ray player there is a DLNA server tab should show up but it does not.
I need configuring file history. I want to have it store files on a shared folder in a local hard rive but I want that folder to be inaccessible to other computers on my home network.
Now its fairly easy to set up a shared folder on a local drive and store file history there but the problem is that other computers can see all my files. I tweaked the sharing permissions on my folder so I removed the 'Everyone' user and put in my user name (which is an admin) and set the permissions to full control. Despite setting the permissions to only my user account, other computers are still able to open the shared file history folder and view and edit its contents.
I can't disable file sharing all together because then it would defeat the purpose of what I am trying to do and also I have another computer on my network store its files on my computer through file history.
I have two networked PCs. On PC1, I have a program file (.exe) that I want PC2 to be able to access, open and use, but not copy or move from it's location. What would be the best permission settings to adjust on PC1 to protect the file?
I have strange issue with Windows 8.1 x64 Pro with Media Center. Since it was upgraded from 8, there have been issues with Software Store. Despite internet connection working fine with Firefox and other applications, Store would not connect to the internet. After long investigation I found out that Proxy server setting in Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings must be disabled in order to get Store working again. For some reason proxy server only stays disabled for the current session, which means when the windows is rebooted it comes back enabled again. My question is how to make it stay permanently disabled, as I don't use any proxy.
I've got a Lenovo all-in-one 64 bit PC. When I click on Change PC Settings in the Settings charm the 'Wireless' option is missing. It appears exactly as expected on my laptop - also a 64bit windows 8 machine.
(My bluetooth mouse and keyboard are working as is my wireless LAN connection, so it's clearly working but I can't change anything).
I am having trouble with ICS on win 8. On my old laptop (win xp) I used to be able to share my 3Connect dongle internet to connect to Xbox live. I recently got a new laptop with win 8 and whenever I share this internet connection I can never connect on my Xbox (the network to internet part fails). When everything is connected up and shared the Ethernet says 'Unidentified Network' which i believe is the cause of the problem. I've read i may require a driver update but i cannot seem to find one.
My Laptop: Toshiba Satellite C855-29N
what to do, maybe i am not setting up the connection sharing properly?
Okay, so in Windows 7 I am able to connect my wireless to my phone, and run an ethernet cable over to my Xbox. If I use the ICS feature and configure it under services to allow ports 88 and 53 UDP, it works fine. This also allows my Xbox to seemingly add to this list of ports as it finds necessary.
The issue is however, with Windows 8, although I can connect to Xbox Live the same way, it does not seemingly allow the Xbox to add more ports that it deems necessary. This leads to that NAT error message that I am actually trying to do this as a way to bypass it.
In Windows 7 this only works if the connection is set to Home (not sure about Work), but not public. I'm curious if the reason this does not work in Windows 8 is that Windows 8 does not have a Home option, but rather only Private or Public settings. There is some small setting buried deep somewhere that I just need to change to treat it like Windows 7 allows Xbox to treat home networks and configure/add ports automatically.
I have 2 PC's. Both are now running Windows 8. The main PC was running Windows 7 and I there mapped a network drive (z to the Windows 8 PC. It worked very nice. The second PC was also shown in "networks" in "my Computer" right after boot of Main PC. So network for sharing is set up properly on second PC.
After installing Windows 8 on main PC, it is still working, but the time spend waiting for the network drive is waaaaay longer now. The name of second PC "Photo-PC", is shown right after boot, but when I first click on the name, and get this error:
Networkpath not found. Errorcode 0x80070035
If I then wait about 20-30 seconds and then click again on "Photo-PC" then I have access to all shared drives, included my mapped network drive Z:
How can I eliminate this 20-30 seconds delay after boot?
I have given up setting up a homegroup, never had it to work, but "oldfashioned" network drives used to work
My ISP provides service only via 802.11. I use laptop A most of the time. The captive portal for the service provider only allows one login per account at a time. The policy is intended to prevent multiple people sharing one account. It's just me, I'm the only user, but very occasionally I'd like to have a 2nd laptop access the internet simultaneously. No abuse, just the simple convenience of not having to logout from A if I need to use B for 30 seconds.
What I want to set up seems simple and it probably is:
WiFi Internet <---> Laptop A <---> ethernet cable <---> Laptop B
Such that Laptop B can share A's active WiFi connection without having to request its own unique address from the ISP.
At present, Laptop A has its network interfaces set up so: - WiFi is connected, active, functional. Selected the "Yes turn on sharing and connect to devices" in sidebar. - Under the wired network properties IP Version 4, I manually set addresses to be IP 192.168.10.1 Subnet 255.255.255.0 Gateway 0.0.0.0
Laptop B has only a wired network, set to IP 192.168.10.2 Subnet 255.255.255.0 Gateway 192.168.10.1
A & B can connect directly to each other, share folders, etc.
What do I need to do in order to get laptop B to transparently use A's WiFi connection? My guess is that A needs to be set up to do some routing between the internet side and the 192.168.10 subnet, and B needs to be set up to look to A as its "ISP" ... but I don't know where to begin.
I have up until a few days ago been able to modify and save my network properties ok. I connected a new DisplayLink USB docking station that lead to an update of some sort. I believed this to be to do with associated drivers. I let this go ahead and it may well have nothing to do with the problems I have been having.
First of all I couldn't even see the IP parameters and kept getting an error as follows:
"In Order to Configure TCP/IP, You Must Install and Enable a Network Adapter Card"
The wired and wireless was working in environments where I could use DHCP so I was confident the hardware was ok. Uninstalling the drivers and then updating them has got me passed this problem so I can see and edit the IP parameters. However now they are never saved. I edit them, close the window, re-edit them and they are back to automatic settings! I need to use static settings in the office.
So far as I can see there are 2 possibilities:
1. I don't have permissions to save these settings, wherever they are stored. But I have administrator permissions. Where are the settings stored? I have saved them before. How can I get access to be able to save them again? 2. Something else is overwriting the settings. How do I find out what and stop it?
This is a fairly new install of Windows 8 pro (within the last month), and while trying to set up a static ip up today I found that I was unable to access the network properties or disable the connection in the Network Connections. I am pretty stumped as I am the only user of this computer and from what I can tell have the correct permissions to do so. When trying to check the properties it tells me "an unexpected error has occurred" with no further information.
We just bought a new machine having windows 8 preinstalled and we use it as a server running small web apps but sometimes it just went dead when nobody touch it for long and we suspect it's the issue related to sleeping mode if it is how do we fix it?
I am a home user trying to use a PPTP VPN connection from Portugal to the UK and this is a new laptop. Frustratingly the connection worked initially but I must have changed something while setting up all my stuff on here since then and I now get error 807 when trying to connect.
I can ping the VPN server but when I try to telnet to it via port 1723 it fails even though I have disconnected the Windows firewall and disabled AVG
I have a laptop I bought last fall with Windows 8. Everything has worked fine until just now. I had internet a moment ago and now it is telling me that there is no connection available. I have checked to see if the wifi was turned off. ALl my other devices are working fin. I went to check that the wifi was turned on in the laptop and it shows no wifi at all....
I'm new to Win 8.1 but I'm fairly tech-savvy. I've got a new Toshiba Satellite S55 B5289 with Win 8.1, connecting to the Internet via Time-Warner over wifi. I'd go into the details of the wifi and router, but given that I've got a month-old HP with Win 7, and a 2-year old Samsung Chromebook sitting here with the Toshiba, all three running Chrome as opposed to IE, and the other two getting significantly better speed, I don't think those details are really critical.
This problem has been going on since I brought the new laptop home, but I've carefully uninstalled all the bloatware that came pre-installed, and made the standard Chrome tweaks [unchecking the hardware accelleration] nothing has worked. Yesterday I took it to a friend who has a computer repair business and he tuned up a lot of the things inside Win 8.1 that I had no clue about - as I understood it, making 8.1 run Chrome without going *through* IE. I didn't pay as much attention to that as I should have, but essentially everything seemed to be working very well. His Internet connection, however, is lightning fast, and connecting to that wifi, things were downloading and running spectacularly well. Just what I'd expected - or at least hoped for - when I bought it.
Using it at home today, the problems have resurfaced. Loading emails, for instance, is not quite right. Images in the emails frequently don't load properly - it will stutter and often stops in the middle of an email. If I click on a link, there can be a significant delay before the page loads. Videos buffer every few seconds and even when I let the entire video load, it still plays spastically.
All of this is in Chrome, using tabs - which I always do. Yes, of course I could clear the cache, start fresh, use no tabs, let one thing load at a time, but that's not what I have ever done, so this is real world testing. The most telling detail, though is the download speeds I'm getting.
Running Speedtest on all three machines, the ping is basically the same, but on the Toshiba, it frequently can't even finish the download test. It just stalls to a halt. The Chromebook gets a download speed of 5.75 and the HP gets 21.31. We pay Time-Warner for 20, so I'd really like to see something like that on the Toshiba.
My connection just went 'limited connection' but I can browse and download on the web with ease. Also, my metro apps like mail, and news, facebook does not update, and also it's live tiles. Windows store app says it can't connect to the internet.
I'm using an Nvidia nForce ethernet built in an Asrock n68c-s ucc motherboard.I tried to find updates for this nvidia nforce but managed to get only for windows 7. so installed it, and nothing happens.
I have a VPN connection from home to work and now that I have moved to Windows 8 I can't get it to work. I have tried pretty much everything I can think of and find on forums and YouTube videos, eg turning off Norton (virus and firewall), opening ports on my router and configuring all manner of settings for the VPN connection.
I have my old Win7 laptop and I can still instantly connect to the VPN using that. So, I have copied all of the settings from there, but still no result.
I constantly get the 'Error 800' message (Unable to establish the VPN connection).
One video showed the steps of setting it up and there were no mysteries to it. It was pretty much all default settings.
