Network / Sharing :: Unable To Open Certain Webpages Unless IPV6 Disabled
Oct 1, 2013
I have three Windows PCs - 1 Windows 7 Pro laptop, a Windows 7 Home Prem PC and a Surface Pro (Win 8 Pro).
Lately (the past month or so) I have had trouble opening a couple of webpages, notably en.wikipedia.org from the Win 8 Surface Pro. Sometimes it opens OK, many times it fails to open, with the spinning wheel on the tab. It times out.
The other PCs have no problem opening wikipedia whilst this problem is evident on the Win 8 Surface Pro. This problem exhibits itself whether I use my default FF browser, or if I use IE as browser - same problem.
If I use Control Panel > Network > Properties and DISABLE IPv6, then wikipedia opens fine right away.
A reboot of the Surface Pro fixes it for a while, but it returns. A reboot of the router (Linksys E4200) also seems to improve the situation, temporarily.
I recently Installed Windows 8 on my system, After finding my net speeds really slow i tried re-installing my wired adapter with latest drivers but the problem is still there. When i check my Wired Network connection status it says IPV6 Connectivity : No Internet Access.but IPV4 connectivity:internet access.
So after I upgraded to 8.1 I have been having internet connectivity issues, it says Im conected fine but cant load any web pages. So I ran trouble shoot and this is is what I got back. (See below). Sometimes troubleshoot will fix it other times not, this time it did.
Issues found :
The default gateway is not available The default gateway is not available The default gateway is a device that connects a local network or computer to the Internet. A broadband modem or router is usually the default gateway.
I have had this problem with all 3 versions of Explorer. If I open a website, as an example RUN: bing.com the pages open full screen. If I use the shortcut on the desktop it opens short about 2 inches on the bottom and another weird thing is that I have a PC right next to this one, the page will open short about 2 inches on the right side of the screen. I have had to resort to Firefox and I have no problems at all.
I am running Win 8.1 on one machine and Win 8 on the other. I had the same problems with XP and Win 7.
So, I woke up this morning and realized the the wifi adapter on my ThinkPad 430 is disabled. It's been working perfectly fine for a couple years, but as of this AM it didn't work. My smart phone can connect to the wifi access point just fine. What I can check to get it working again?
The keyboard of my laptop was broken so I cannot use "Fn" key to switch on the laptop's wifi adapter. I am sure airplane mode has turn off my wifi because there is no light. I tried to use "fn" of osk but that didn't work..
The last time also happened to me last year, but that time my keyboard still functioning so I able to solve that problem. But now my keyboard not working, is there any shortcut/application/bat/vbs method to turn on without using keyboard?
I have run into some networking problems and I think I have narrowed it down to the homegroup provider.
I have 4 windows 8 pro x64 computers connected to a router. Up until now, I have been able to disable the homegroup provider service because I don't want to use the homegroup and don't want to see it in my file explorer. I have been able to connect to all the shared computer drives up until I tried to disable the homegroup provider on my netbook. When I did this I lost the ability to connect to other shared computers. I re-enabled the provider, however I still cannot see drives on other computers. I can now see my netbook on the other shared computers.
My friend lives in an area where the only possible internet connection is through a CDMA USB device. They have multiple computers all connected through a host computer sharing this CDMA connection.
Recently they had a major problem with the Windows XP machine that was acting as host. So they bought a new desktop computer (HP PRE with Intel Core i7). I got them a copy of Windows 8 Pro and installed it on the host. Everything was going great until it was time to share the internet connection! I clicked on the CDMA device and clicked to share the connection using the ethernet connector as the shared device. The Ethernet cable goes to wireless router plugged into 1 of 4 switch connectors. All WAN features are turned off on router. I set the router's local IP to an address in same subnet as shared connection on host machine (192.168.137.1).
Then I connected a 2nd computer to the wireless router. This computer connects great! It gets an valid IP address from host. I can connect from 2nd computer to host to browse files on host, no problem. However, the 2nd computer can not connect to the internet.
When it first connects, the 2nd computer shows internet access, but after 30 seconds or so, internet access is disabled.
I've been trying to set up an old Savin 9033 printer through the company's router, but I couldn't find the network it's set up on from any other computer.
So I pull up Network & Sharing, see that Network Discovery is turned off.
I check it, go to click on "Save Changes" and nothing happens. I click it a few times and it kicks me back to the previous page, nothing saved. No password prompt or anything.
I double checked that all the appropriate services are running (DNS Client, SSDP Discovery, UPnP Device Host, Function Discoveryr Resource Publication, etc.) and made sure Network Discovery was allowed through Windows Firewall.
I purchased an HP Notebook PC 2000-2c20NR last week that came pre-installed with Windows 8. Somehow - I think it was when I was trying to change settings to where I do not have to give a password everytime I log in - I became lost as the Administrator. I am the only one who uses this laptop.
So, now I am stuck, unable to change settings, install/uninstall programs, etc. Everytime I try to change something, I am given this error screen:
As you see, it asks me to type an administrator password, then click Yes. The "Yes" option is greyed out and disabled. I have tried everything I could find to change this, but in order to make any changes, I have to be the Adminstrator (which I am), but this error screen pops up with any and everything I do. I have even tried a System Restore/Recovery, but I can't, because the UAC will not let me continue as Administrator.
The status of my account currently names me a "local user."
I have Norton Internet Security 2013 installed and no viruses, etc are present.
I have 2 machines connected via my router/hub (wired). One is running Windows 8.1 and the other Windows 7. Previously I had them sharing perfectly until I did a reinstall of Windows 8 (upgraded to Windows 8.1). I get this message on both machines whilst trying to access shared drives (permissions enabled to read, write, modify for all users):
I have a local account on the windows 8.1 as per previous installation. I have checked all the usual sharing settings and they are the same as in the previous working installation on both machines. I have left the homegroup and created a new one on the windows 8 machine and rejoined on the windows 7 machine all to no avail.
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.
My main PC, 2 laptops, an iPhone and an iPad all connect to my home wifi network. All worked perfectly until 3 days ago.
The 2 laptops and my PC all run Windows 8.1 (all updated). 3 days ago my Toshiba Qosmio stopped being able to connect to my home network. All other devices still connect perfectly.
The Qosmio doesn't detect my wifi network. I immediately went to the network adapter's (Qualcomm Atheros) website and downloaded the latest driver. Installed it and for a brief (very brief) time it could once again detect and connect to the network. Last 3 days unable to either detect or connect.
It detects other networks fine, and has no problems connecting to any other network - except mine (doesn't even detect mine anymore). It connects to the iPhone (when used as a hotspot) without any issues.
I've uninstalled and re-installed the new driver, re-booted the wireless router (several times), re-set the router to factory settings, used Windows trouble shooter, checked & deleted the netsh profiles. Re-booted the laptop a dozen + times, disabled (& uninstalled software) for the laptop's Bluetooth.
It simply stopped working.
I've tried everything I can find on the web - without any success at all. I've had the laptop sitting only a few cm from the router.
I recently installed a fresh version of Windows 8. Everything went smooth until I tried connecting to a wireless network.It finds the wireless network, after typing in the password (btw its a WPA2-Personal), I instantly get Can't connect to this network.I tried it on another wifi network and it gives me the same problem.Another thing I noticed is that when I right click on the Wifi network I get no options.And when I do it on a wired network I only get the turn on/off sharing option.By the way when connected directly to the router connection is perfect.
I thought I had my sharing files figured out,but now I updated to windows 8.1 and cannot open the files I have marked "share with" on my windows 7 computer. I keep getting the box that tells me I don't have permission. I have read/write checked. How do I open them in windows 8.1. One computer has windows 7 the trouble one has windows 8.1.
I have a PC with Windows 8.1 and a Mac with Mavericks. I have a folder on the Mac that is shared with the PC. When I'm on the PC and I try to open a file that is shared by the Mac, such as an ISO file (a disk image), then I get a message saying that I cannot open the file, or the file is in use (it depends on the app/filetype). I have the same problem when I open a video file. Strangely, text files and PDF files are just fine. And if I copy any of the problematic files to the local Windows disk, then I can open them just fine.
The specific error messages are:
- AVI files opened in VLC: "Your input can't be opened. VLC is unable to open the MRL." - ISO files opened by Windows Explorer: "Sorry, there was a problem mounting the file."
This only started happening after I upgraded to Windows 8.1 on the PC and Mavericks on the Mac. Mavericks upgraded its SMB version from SMB1 to SMB2, so perhaps that is related?
I moved to windows 8 recently and i am not able to connect to my vpn,I checked with support team and they told to change registry name for vpn and In websites also it was like that I did everything like that but still same issue....
i really suffer when i use my laptop to connect to the internet via wifi
1. can't connect to this network : this message appears every time i try to connect to the internet even at home where the distance between the laptop and the router is less than one meter aand no one is using the internet
2.even if i managed to connect to the network i can't connect to the internet for a while -varies from 5 to 10 minutes-
3. sometimes the network auto disconnects with no error message
4.there is a small '!' above every available network and i remember it disappeared for a while and the networking was perfect
I have a xbox that I have used (successfully, for about a year) as an extender for WMC 8. Im not sure what I did, but I am now unable to connect to my HTPC running win 8.1 pro. I have tried everything that even sniffs of a solution but I still get the error "unable to find extender". I can use the xbox to watch Hulu, Netflix but no WMC. My PC sees my xbox, however when I try to "test PC connection" thru the xbox System Settings/Network Settings/Test PC Connection I get, "network connected" - OK, then "PC Not Listed". I cant access my PC from the xbox "video player" either.
Ive tried all the popular fixes, turned off firewall, enabled extender services -- only to have them mysteriously disabled as soon as I attempt the extender setup process. Same mysterious disabling of the "Media Center Extenders" checked box in the "Allowed apps to communicate through Windows Firewall". Ive addressed all the sharing issues I can find, still nothing.
So I bought this wireless game controller for my pc. I plugged it in at home and set to trying to getting it connected. It didn't seem to be connecting to any bluetooth network, so I looked for bluetooth in control panel and it didn't exist. I found out how to turn on bluetooth, but it seems in my 'Change PC Settings' menu there is no Wireless option. I went to the windows 8 metro thing and searched for 'wireless' and again nothing comes up at all. I checked my network and sharing center and then to change adapter settings and Ive got my Qualcomm Atheros AR922x Wireless Network adapter there and the device is working fine, just not connected to anything. Does that even work for bluetooth and connecting wireless peripherals?
I'm unable to create a home group. when i try to do so, i'm getting an error message saying "Windows just detected an existing homegroup. To join it, click ok, and then open homegroup in control panel."
But the problem is, i don't have any existing homegroup on my pc. at the same time, there were no any other devices connected to my network. i tried with a pc aswell. but it didn't work, When i try to join, i'm getting an error like,
I'm running on win 8. i tried to clear all files on the folder
"C:WindowsServiceProfilesLocalServiceAppDataRoamingPeerNetworking" and tried restarting the homegroup provider and listener and they were running. And ipv6 is also enabled.
Just setup a N router, works OK with Laptop with Win 8, but unable to connect with Win 8 Desktop. Have entered router keys OK but nothing pops up to click to connect. Been into (Settings) then (Change PC Settings), but no Wireless tab in setting. Type in wireless, PC checks (No wireless). I have Win 8 Disk, can I load wireless driver from Disk if yes how.
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.
I have never used 'Bluetooth' before. I want to transfer a file between my laptop and Android tablet. I turned Bluetooth 'on' (which I have installed the latest driver) on my Windows 8.1 laptop. I turned Bluetooth 'on' on my Android 4.1.1 tablet. I had my laptop search for 'Bluetooth' devices, but my tablet is never found. Is there something I am doing wrong?
I'm having a pretty major issue with Skydrive on Windows 8.1. A vast majority of my files are unopenable from Explorer (or the Modern UI app which seems to just open them through explorer in the end anyway). When I try to open one of these files, I receive an error message titled "1 Interrupted Action" and displaying the message:
An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search to solve this problem.
Error 0x80040A41: No error description available
I have yet to find anything even resembling a solution when I search for that error code. The options this error window gives me is to "Try Again" which presents a typical explorer progress bar that never goes anywhere or to "skip" or "cancel" which do the same thing. Essentially this means that I have to use the skydrive web client to download the file to some other location locally and then edit and reupload from there. As far as I can tell there also isn't a traceable logic to what files are going to be accessible and which ones are not. I could literally be just finished working on a file, save it, and have it inaccessible when I try to reopen it. This error has not improved or changed at all by my making any files "available offline" or "available online-only" (in fact clicking those options doesn't seem to actually change their Availability that is listed in explorer).
I've used Skydrive for a few years now (since the beta I believe) as my primary cloud storage service, I pay for Office 365, and therefore I have access to a larger amount of storage on Skydrive than I do on other cloud services. I'm using Google Drive temporarily, but its incredibly inconvenient given how invested and reliant I've become to Skydrive.
