  1. New problem

    Hi all,

    In my long running battle to get my wireless network up and running again, I
    have yet another problem. I'll go through the scenario, and explain my
    latest problem.

    Wireless network previously worked without a hitch for three years. Tried
    to add another computer for my kids, and played around with the settings.
    Have not been able to get it working since. Spent endless hours trying to
    fix it.

    Main computer: Windows XP professional. IP address: 192.168.0.1
    Router: Netgear MR814 - silver, detachable antenna IP address:
    192.168.0.99
    Notebook computer: Windows XP professional -was previously wireless
    networked to main computer IP address: 192.168.0.2
    Other desktop: Windows ME - previously have been able to share files on the
    network, but isn't working currently. IP address: 192.168.0.3

    Workgroup: MSHome

    I have left the other desktop at present(am not trying to add it in), and
    have just tried to get the two previously working computers going again. I
    can ping the Main computer and the router from the Notebook computer. I
    cannot get access to see the computers in the MSHome workgroup from the main
    computer - I get a message saying I do not have permission. I only get the
    Notebook to come up in the workgroup on the Notebook.

    Today when I did 'ipconfig/all' on the main computer, I noticed that I had
    something different to what I normally see. Normally I just have the
    settings and IP addresses for the computer and the internet connection.
    Today, I also have 'Tunnel adapter 6-to-4 Tunneling Pseudo Interface'
    settings, and also 'Tunnel adapter Automatic Tunneling Pseudo Interface'. I
    have no idea what this means but I know that it is normally not there.
    Anyone got any ideas what it is, and whether it should be there?

    Hi
    Do you have IPv6 installed.?
    Look at the Local Connetion Properties.

    No, it doesn't show up in the Local Area Connection Properties.

    Hi Tracey,
    Jack have a point here, you have IPV6 installed and used on your computer or
    configured on your Router?.
    Do the Following:
    Open a Run Command and Type in:
    ipv6 uninstall Click [OK] or Hit [Enter]
    Reboot the Computer and try to Access the Router Web interface by typing in
    the Browser the IP:
    192.168.0.99 Hit Enter.
    Are you able to access the router webpage?, if yes go through the Wizard,
    but please unattach the Other Computer just with Desktop (XP Pro) then add
    them one- by-one

  5. Re: New problem

    Thanks, Nass. I did the uninstall bit, but it doesn't seem to have worked.
    I did what you said, and it came up with 'IPv6 is not installed.
    Succeeded." But then when I do an ipconfig/all I still get all the
    Automatic Tunneling Pseudo interface stuff. Any other ideas?

    Tracey

    Ps. This whole networking thing is starting to feel way over my head. I
    used to think I was a reasonably advanced computer person, but now I feel
    like I know nothing!!!!!

    Could you send the ipconfig /all log/output file here, and Make your MAC
    false more than your real MAC Address please.
    HTH.

    = It sound fishy to me these DNS entries? do you have Anti-Virus up2date,
    scan your machine to make sure all clean.

    You need to be sure your system is clean from malwares and Viruses by
    scanning for them.
    http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad-...e_personal.php
    http://www.safer-networking.org

    Also did you implement the IP Routing on your Network? read at the bottom
    about IP Routing. You need to Enable the DHCP server on your Router for all
    machine to obtain Auto IPs.

    = Open Windows Explorer and locate this path:
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc = look in the right pane/window and open the
    Hosts file in a Notepad and remove any entries is there and save the Hosts
    file as is!>

    [ ] Append parent suffixes of the primary DNS suffixes

    DNS suffix for this connection [ leave empty ]
    [ ] Register this connection's addresses in DNS
    Then click on WINS Tab,make sure these Settings are correct:
    [ ] Enable LMHOSTS lookup

  9. Re: New problem

    Happily, I can say that I can now file share between my computers. The
    internet connection is not working on the laptop, however I don't think that
    I will mess with this because in a few weeks, I am going to change over to a
    broadband connection. Thanks so much for all your help, Nass. I may be
    back once I get the broadband for some more guidance, but I can leave you in
    peace for now. Thanks again!
