However, after running that script and restarting, it is unable to set the IP address (See screenshot).
Also, there are many logs in Event Viewer which says this: The DHCP allocator has disabled itself on IP address 169.254.212.34, since the IP address is outside the 192.168.137.0/255.255.255.0 scope from which addresses are being allocated to DHCP clients. To enable the DHCP allocator on this IP address, change the scope to include the IP address, or change the IP address to fall within the scope.
I use a USB modem in Windows 8.1 laptop. I want to share the internet to other devices by creating a hostednetwork. I used the netsh commands to create and start the hostednetwork. The wifi hotspot got created as 'Local area network connection *14. The internet from the USB modem was shared to Local area network connection *14. Other devices are able to connect to this and are getting IP address in the range of 192.168.137.X. The issue is that, the devices are not able to access internet. in troubleshooting this issue.
Don't give the instructions to create a hostednetwork or advice to use 'Virtual router plus'. I have already done all sorts of basic troubleshooting. Everything looks fine, but there is no internet connection to other devices.
I am able to share internet using the same USB modem with same method in Windows 7.
I want basicly to home host a VPN, and that is what i do at the moment. So i tried with my friend after i did finish the setup (i did setup the VPN in the Windows Networks interface, over "Incomming Connections"), and i did portforward 1723, and the worst is, that when my friend connects upto the VPN from his PC at his home (not Local), to my IP, then it says on my PC he is connected.
But here comes the problems, at his PC, the Network Icon turns into a yellow warning icon, and when he clicks troubleshoot, it says "DNS Server does not respond", but at my PC here, it even says he is connected to the VPN, but also says no connection over IPv4, and the same on his side.
What can we do to get a connections from my PC to his PC, over the VPN, so he can access the Internet over my Internet instead, like lets say he has a blockade on for example www.facebook.com at home (which he of course doesn't has, it is just an example), and he connects to my VPN, as he accesses my Internet instead, he can open www.facebook.com, instead of having it blocked (one of the main purposes for a VPN, and the data encryption of course).
Here some screenshots:
My PC (Language = German): My Friends PC (Language = Norwegian):
And as you can see on my PC, it says he is connected, and as you can see on his PC, it also says he is connected, but he cant access the Internet, or anything else related to the web. Now prepare for the funny part: We were on Skype, and as he connected to the VPN, and "lost" the Internett Access, we were still talking (i guess that's because Skype still runs over the home network, while the rest tries to access internet over the VPN connection .
for a while I've been using netsh to add some IP addresses to the standard windows loopback adapter (interface idx=1) which worked fine until today when I ran windows update.
I have always used this command to assign my loopback adapter an extra IP:
netsh int ip add addr 1 address=126.96.36.199 mask=255.255.255.0 st=ac
(using an example IP address)
But since installing the updates, this returns the following error message:
Failed to configure the DHCP service. The interface may be disconnected.The system cannot find the file specified.
However, when I do "netsh int ip show int" it clearly shows the following interfaces:
Idx Met MTU State Name --- ---------- ---------- ------------ --------------------------- 1 50 4294967295 connected Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1 3 25 1500 connected Wi-Fi 4 5 1500 disconnected Local Area Connection* 2
and it's not disconnected at all. The only fix I have found so far was reinstalling windows 8.1 and not installing any updates... I just installed the updates again and it stopped working.
Whenever I turn on WLAN in my router, the whole network suffers from an incredible latency. No online game is playable, but the download speed itself is not being touched (i.e. fullspeed) and websites load - even if they're a bit slower, it seems. Once I'm switching WLAN off, it is all back to normal again.
I have really no clue about the source of this evil and due to the nature, it's actually hard to google, as you'd only find problems of people that have high latency over the WLAN devices. I'm experiencing all this stuff on my normal LAN PCs as well, though.
Here's a result from an online ping test with an american server. so, no packet loss.

It's a new HP laptop, the m6-1158. I purchased it about three months ago. When I got it, I updated the network card directly from Intel to the latest driver. When I started having issues around a month ago, I reinstalled the OEM driver from HP. When awaking my computer from its sleep, the network card would find my network but it would not connect. It would say, roughly, unable to connect. Eventually I can get it to work by deleting and re-adding the connection several times. The problem doesn't occur every time I awaken my computer, but maybe once every three times.
There have been some changes in my network. I added a wireless extender and set it up on the same SSID. I also changed my wireless security from WPA/WPA2 to just WPA2. I have seen the same problem occur on another Windows 8 laptop in my network.
When running Intel's WiFi troubleshooter, it fails on the association test.
Every time the connection fails, I get the following error in Event Viewer:
my WLAN Autoconfig, windows keeps telling me that the service isn't running - I've noticed when I run Services.msc that it's usually not on, so I start it up which seemed to have solved the problem yesterday but today - not so much...
So now it's not showing visible wireless networks (all working fine on the network with other pc's on xp), doesn't seem to respond to going into flight mode etc.
All drivers are up to date for the laptop (it's probably only a couple of months old).
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.
I have a frustrating problem on my Windows 8.1 laptop that only started a couple of weeks ago.
Previously, whenever I resumed my laptop from sleep mode, the network would always be instantly available too. I've always been impressed with the speeds of resuming from sleep in Windows 8, it's all pretty instant and means I can get straight back to browsing etc once I've entered my password.
Now, if I wake the laptop from sleep, I enter my password and the network appears to not be available for about a minute or so. Then it functions normally, but it's very, very frustrating as I can't work out the cause. When I resume, if I try and refresh webpages, I get 'network not available' errors in Chrome, but the monitors (I use Network Activity Indicator) in the system tray don't show a loss of network connectivity (i.e - there is no red 'X' over the wireless signal bars)
Sometimes, if when entering my password I get it incorrect, it will say "PC is offline. Please enter the last password you logged on with" - I am assuming this is also due to the above problem.
Why could this have suddenly started happening? No settings have changed/been changed on the router side.
This has been happening for the better part of 10 months now. Its happened on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 (8.1 to be specific).
I cold boot the PC and sometimes the network connection will not connect. There are two ways to solve this: 1) Reboot works everytime I believe
2) Or just open the PROWinx64 zip (Intel Network Connections Install Wizard)
This is the interesting bit - I don't reinstall the driver, I merely open the zip, it extracts and it loads the very first screen of the install wizard. That's all that is needed to connect the network.
This began happening after I resinstalled Windows 7 last year, and after a bit of searching for a solution I decided to just upgrade to Windows 8.1 However, as I've seen the problem still persists.
Is this indicative of a hardware failure or what might be the issue?
I have tried multiple drivers. The latest one listed on the ASUS page (P8Z68-V Pro mobo) is from Sept 2013, so I've also tried one from Intel's page
(A) a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga with Windows 8.1 Professional (B) a Samsung with Windows 8.1 Home (upgraded from Windows 8) (C) an Acer Aspire with Windows 7 Home
All windows are 64 bits versions and all use Local accounts with my username "mo" as an Administrator. I have defined shares on all machines with names like "drv-c" or "drv-d". I all the shares I have only the user "mo" and the group Administrators having access to the shares and I have removed the "everyone" user.
From laptop (C) I can access the shares is both laptops (A) and (B).
From laptop (A) I can access the shares in laptop (B) and from (B) I can access the shares in (A)
But... from laptop (A) or laptop (B) I cannot access any share in laptop (C). I get a pop-up asking for credentials where I put my username and my password but I get a "refusal" mentioning "the username of password are incorrect". I have tried to add the "everyone" user to get access to the shares in the Win7 machine but it does not work a bit.
Summarizing: From Windows 7 I can access shares in Windows 8.1 machines, but from Windows 8.1 I cannot access shares in a Windows 7 machine.
Recently my Samsung laptop has been getting kicked of my house's WiFi. The computer will power up normally and connect to the WiFi, but as soon as I try to use the WiFi to access the internet the connection fails.Typically this only occurs when other devices are connected to the same WiFi. As soon as the other decieves are taken of the WiFi the computer is able to access the internet again. I have tried updating all my drivers and still nothing.
I'm having a rather annoying issue on Windows 8 with my ASUS Laptop.
When moving from Wi-Fi to Ethernet (disable Wi-Fi, plug-in Ethernet cable then enable Ethernet port) my computer fails to recognize the Ethernet connection. I have to restart my computer to solve the problem.
Network on my Lenovo Yoga running Windows 8.1 works fine over both wireless and Ethernet (USB dongle).
I have an iMac initiating a Remote Desktop connection to the Yoga via a direct Ethernet cable between the devices. Everything works fine on the Windows 8.1 device except the WiFi can no longer connect to any access points and thus the Yoga has no Internet/network access--it just fails immediately when I select an access point for connection.
I do see an Event ID 8000 from NETwNe64 around the time of this failure; not sure if it's the same cause.
If I log back into the Yoga (and thus break the Remote Desktop Ethernet connection and take over that session), wireless works perfectly again. Thus it is clear that WiFi is only down when the device is accessed via RDP over Ethernet.
I use wmp12 to share and stream all my movies to an android box up stairs using upnp, connected with rj45, works great, have prevent idel to sleep set in power options for media this also works great, but when im finished streaming, wmpntwk.exe continues to run and prevents sleep, there was a fix in win 7 to change the power flags for wmpntwk.exe but have found nothing for windows 8, have been using sleepless it works well and will put pc to sleep when it dosnt detect a pre set upload speed, so when I stop streaming after 30 min pc will sleep, but this program wont allow monitor to sleep so im worried about screen burn, why is something that should be simple so difficult stop streaming turn off wmpntwk.exe
So this has been a problem ever since I installed Windows 8 Pro on my Dell XPS15 L502X. Everything works fine but when I put the computer to sleep, if I come back after a lengthy period of time the computer will turn off, and when I turn it on it boots instantaneously but will not connect to the wifi networks. The Wifi icon has the little star to indicate that it is on and not connected and when you mouse over it, it says there are available networks however clicking it does not bring up the network selection panel. Mousing over to the right and clicking on settings does the same thing, wont bring up the network selection panel. Going in via control panel, the same thing. Logging out and logging in does not solve it either. It requires a full reboot. After a reboot it works fine again. This is not a problem with sleep if it is just for a short period of time, but for a longer (I can't give you an exact time) it happens, and it is very annoying. Also it will not auto-connect to networks it recognizes in this mode.
Is there a way to setup network profiles or something so that when I bring my Surface Pro to work and connect to the wireless network there it will use the static ip address I have but when I disconnect and then connect to my home wifi it will go back to DHCP? On my MacBook Pro I can go into the network settings and change the location profile I have setup for networks but I don't see anything like this for Windows 8.
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.
I am trying to share a specific folder on my Windows 8 computer with my Windows 7 computer. They are both on the same network connected to the same router. The Windows 8 computer is connected through ethernet, while the Windows 7 computer is connected wirelessly.
Here are my settings on my Windows 8 Computer:
This is the error I get on my Windows 7 computer:
What's up with this? On a related note, is it possible to share this folder with a specific PC, rather than "Everyone" on the network?
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?
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 just bought a Lenovo Y500 a couple of days ago and it came with a pre-installed Windows 8 everything seems working fine but when it comes to Wifi it randomly disconnects a lot , sometimes shows limited access and most of the time the signal strength bars keep going up and down.
I have a 20mbps upload with my ISP and I'm getting around 18.5 consistently. I've started using Zoolz for backing up and I have been assured it does not throttle the bandwidth. It reports it is uploading at around 15-16mbps which would be absolutely fine but Task Manager and NetSpeedMonitor show the upload speed as considerably lower.
I've attached a screenshot showing the difference but I was wondering if Task manager and NetSpeedMonitor could be wrong at all? It seemed quite coincidental that the speed reported by Zoolz was roughly what I would expect. Is there any sort of traffic that wouldn't show with Task Manager?
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.
In my network 4 Desktop running windows XP all are connected LAN cable and my modem is tplink and 1 laptop running windows 8.1 pro accessing network through wireless in my laptop network place all the pcs are visible but I am not able to ping them and when I click I am getting message that Network path not found Error code 0x80070035
I have a lenovo G505 laptop - it will no longer connect to my BT home hub despite it showing as being available. I suspect it might be to do with the fact that it is has a passkey - I entered it yesterday when prompted and it connected fine, but now I'm not being given the option of entering the key.
I've also tried connected using the BT wifi (as opposed to homehub) but once again it will not connect me. I've been through all the troubleshooting options, and searched under every term I can think of, but nothing is working.
My 8.1 laptop shows multiple network connections to my Samsung Smart TV --- One as "media connections" and 3 as "other connections". Both devices are on a simple wireless network using Linksys WRT54GS.
Under the "Network" page, most of the "Properties" of the TV connections are the same except for "Serial Number" and "Unique Identifier". Did I do something wrong when setting things up? Are these extra connections harmful? Should I delete some? How?
