Setting up a Wireless/Wired network - Page 2

post #11 of 33
Thread Starter 
Ran it on my PC, ran fine. Ran it on another one, using Home, got "cannot complete the network setup." I use "This computer connects to the internet through a residential gateway or thru another computer on my network" for all of the PCs I'm setting it up on.

That's the right setup. Did it give an error telling you why, or is that all it said?
Looking abck over the thread... is there a software firewall running when you try the network setup?

Not too much of an error, although it is on wireless, so I had to click on the ignore hardware box in the beginning because I have an ethernet port onboard...Could that be the root of the problem?

Well, that's easy enough to check. Go to my network places, right click on the ethernet connection and disable it. Then you'll need to do it through the wireless. Also, make sure that the wireless is connected to the router with no problems. If it's not connected and setup already, you may want to set everything up with no encryption. Just leave the network wide open for anyone to connect with a wireless card. Once we have everything setup and working, then we can add encryption and security.

A helpful hint would be to check your firewall settings. Actually, the built in Windows Network Setup dealie is actually pretty good. I got my home network to work at my old house with printer sharing and all. Biggest problem would have to be setting up router and permissions. If all else fails, you could just turn off Nort Int Security every time you wish to share printers. I'd consider that a last resort. Im sure plenty of these guys here know alot more than me and could help you further. Theres my best shot! Haha.

p.s. Different OS's does make the process a tad more difficult.

What really stinks is when you have about an hour's time window to do this stuff, and I had many other things to do other than this. Now, armed with this information, I will tomorrow try this again! Thanks so far guys!

BURN!

Sorry, I'm just bored to death, and want to troubleshoot some network stuff! I'm going to give my opinion here... There is some good info in this thread, and any one of the ideas may be the cause. I am a systems/network admin, and I always find that it's good to get back to the basics when dealing with this stuff. There are 3 really good tools that will confirm network connectivity between machines: PING, IPCONFIG, and TRACERT.

The first thing you need to do is confirm that each machine is on the same network. If they are all getting IP addresses via DHCP from a router, then they probably are, but it's always good to check. Go to start->run->cmd and hit enter. This will bring up the command prompt. Type "ipconfig /all" and het enter. Write down all the following info from each machine:

IP Address
Subnet mask
default gateway
DNS server(s)

Most routers give out 192.168.0.X addresses (or 192.168.1.X). Each machine should have a different X values, a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and a default gateway and dns server of 192.168.0.1 (the router IP).

Once you have verified that each machine is on the same network, try to ping each machine FROM each machine. At the command prompt, type "ping 192.168.0.X" and hit enter. (replace the X with the appropriate number). The machines should all reply. If you find one that doesn't, you may have found the issue.

If a machine doesn't respond to ping, there's not a lot of reasons why. Usually, there is either a physical problem with a cable, the NIC, or there is something blocking the ping, like a software firewall.

If everything responds to ping OK, then we can try browsing to IP addresses. Let me know how this goes, and we'll go to the next step if needed.

I'm terribly sorry about not getting on top of this. Tomorrow I am specifically setting aside time to work this out, I should be home around 3 PM, and be ready to go by 330 EST. Does that sound good? I will try all the above things and report back. Again, I'm terribly sorry for the delay, I haven't had any time recently for anything, never mind overclocking and this network.
