How to test localhost from any device on your network

I can see it and connect to it with no difficulty from my MacBook Pro, but Windows can't see it? Maybe Microsoft has finally realized that the only way to make Windows secure is to keep its users off of networks.

It sounds like your making the connection, but what ever your connecting to wants you to authenticate before allowing access like a Private Network behind a Firewall, maybe a Neighbor's Network, etc..

I'm trying to connect my father-in-law's brand new Windows laptop to his wireless network. The network has no password, no encryption, and it's broadcasting the SSID. I have no difficulty seeing or connecting to it with my MacBook Pro without authenticating.

Check with the manufacturer to see if the latest driver is installed for your Network card. Also check the support knowledge base and forums of the manufacturer to see if other users are having the same problems. You may find a solution. I spent about an hour online chatting with HP tech support. They kept giving me instructions that didn't make any sense for this model e.

They sent me a bunch of urls to get the drivers, and I had to remind them that I couldn't download anything to the Compaq because it didn't have a network, and downloading them to my Mac wouldn't do me any good because I couldn't install them on the Compaq because I had no way to get them onto the Compaq because it doesn't even have bluetooth—not that I would be able to get it to work even if it did.

So then they said I should try restarting the Compaq and hitting F8 as soon as the red Compaq logo appeared to get some kind of setup menu. This turned out to be very amusing. First of all, can you believe how freaking difficult they've made it to find the restart command in Vista???? It took me about three minutes to find it! Then, after the reboot, the Compaq logo appeared, but it was white, not red. So as I'm wondering when the red one is going to show up I realized that Windows was already starting up, so I have to restart it again.

Windows starts up again. So another restart, and this time I try holding down F10, because there's a message on the screen that says something about holding down F10 to get some kind of setup menu. So when the menu appears I start looking around for this "last known good configuration" thing they said to look for. But it's nowhere to be found.

So at this point I'd decided I'd wasted about enough time with Compaq tech support, who obviously haven't got a clue about how their products actually work, and with this cocked-up abortion of an operating system.

So I told my father-in-law that the obvious solution to his problem was to return this POS laptop and go get a MacBook. The next time someone tells me they're having trouble with a Windows computer I'm just going to say, "I'm sorry to hear that. I remember seeing that option somewhere, and it was checked, but I thought IP v6 support should be standard on any new laptop. Macs have had it for years. They don't even list this model on their site. I swear there is no EF or EM on the sticker on this machine or in the system info in firmware.

I can see it on the Mac in the Airport menu. I don't even have to run Kismet to see it. But in Vista, it keeps telling me that the settings aren't valid for a network. Vista cna see the network but not connect to it. It really wants me to import the settings using a USB flash drive, so I did that. I also tried every entry manually. The settings that work on XP and are exported to my flash drive or printout for manual entry are:.

In Vista, however, these options aren't selectable this way. For instance, with an open network authentication type, WEP is not a selectable option. Key index is driven to 1, 2, 3, or 4, but not a zero or blank. How can I connect from Vista to a working encrypted wireless network, that it can see, that my XP computes can connect to?

I've tried every option of every menu multiple times. I even tried to reset my router back to store values to start unencrypted and start fresh, but I could get it to that either.

I was lucky to get back to where I was. Windows Zero Connect was no help either. As many things can contribute to wireless connection issues, the most commoon items I found that causes wireless problems are:. One of the most common sources of wireless connection problems is interference operating at the same frequency as cordless phones, baby monitor, etc…. If you are running a firewall make sure it's not blocking access to the router.

If it is, enable it so Vista can see it. XP and Vista are not the same. If you had a wireless card that used to work on XP and now it won't work on Vista, it may be incompatible with Vista driver only works on XP.

Try using a different adapter. Thanks for the tips. I had pretty much checked all this but it inspired me to run a step-by-step systematic diagnostic of my own. Maybe this will help someone else.

I connected the laptop to the router with a hard LAN cable so I could maintain control of the router while troubleshooting the wireless connection. First I disabled all firewalls to confirm that there was no interference, which there wasn't. Then I took the router down to an unencrypted basic state to confirm it would connect via the wireless adapter, which it would.

I then turned back on the Norton Internet Security firewalls, and connectivity was still good. I then increased encryption on the router one step at a time, matching the settings on the wireless network properties. I went to WEP with a hexadecimal key, and got good connectivity. I then increased to digit WEP and reestablished a good connection. I then went to WPA personal successfully. The frustrating thing was, aside from the time I spent figuring this out, was that nowhere did I see this idea of step-by-step increases in encryption or suggestions to reduce it.

No user guides, no help pages, not the manufacturer. The best help was this forum and the Linksys router guide I downloaded.

I have solved my problem and hopefully someone else will benefit from my experience. The valuable information you provided, should help out a lot more Vista users with wireless network problems. As you experienced, sometimes it just takes a little more digging to solve these pesky problems. I have a desktop running XP and a laptop running Vista. The desktop is wired to the Netgear router and the laptop connects wirelessly to the router.

The two computers share a printer and this works too. It all works but when I click on the little icons on the Vista laptop to see what wireless networks are available, there appears to be two. The other says it is an un-named and unsecure network. There is nothing I can do to connect to this unnamed network. If I turn off the wireless operation of my router, both these apparent networks dissappear.

I have WEP security enabled. What is going on? What is this second network? And can I get rid of it. It must be coming from my router I guess. More than likely the 2nd network is from your neighbor and somehow your Netgear router is picking it up. When I see odd things like that on my Network, I know it's time to change all security settings on the router…you may want to do the same thing.

Nope, I do not believe is not a neighbour. I do see other networks, but this unsecure un-named one dissappears if I turn off the wireless operation of my router.

Surely that means it is something to do with my router. Any external network should still show up on the laptop shouldn't it? I think it's the remnant of when you had your network up before. I found that when I changed the name of my network, the old name stayed as a viable option to select — even though the router was no longer transmitting that name.

Try turning on broadcast mode again until you have everything solved. Change the name to something else so you can tell which is which, and use WPA. Then, if you find an old network that isn't "real" anymore, delete it by using the REMOVE option when you have all available networks showing. Ken Croft — look like you are not the only Netgear user who has encountered this. Disabling SSID broadcast only disables broadcasting the name.

The network will still be announced but no one will be able to connect to it. Looks like you may not need to worry about it. Many thanks to you all. This was very helpful to know that I am not alone and that it is just a quirk of the Netgear router. Just one more though, for Steve. Presumably this is in a menu somewhere in Vista? Select Manage Wireless Networks. All the networks will be displayed — those your computer's wireless can see, and those it has ever chosen before such as hotels or airports, in case it ever sees them again.

Select the network that you no longer want. The Change Adapter button becomes the Remove button green minus sign , available to be selected. That network is removed from the list of available networks. My laptop detects the D-Link router when I open "select a newtwork to connect to",but shows a red cross.

It then tells me that the security settings in Vista do not match those for D-link. If you do, then you will need to configure the wireless adapter with the encryption settings on your laptop. I'm not sure if this is a similar issue. No issues connecting with unsecure networks. My problem is I can't access the internet if there is a security password requirement. I never am prompted to enter the Network key.

Something is probably set wrong on my system but I can't find a setting to force a password prompt if there is a secure access point. At first I was able to "connect" but with limited access meaning no internet connection … I then disabled my router security and retried — I was then able to connect with no problem. Or you can open Network and Sharing center select Manage Wireless Networks from left pane , right click on the Network, select properties and check the box to Connect Automatically.

What do I do when the connect to a network says "the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network. I have an issue with Vistas' wireless network settings. I have to continually connect to the router manually. I have the same issue as Steve.

Everytime I boot my laptop, I need to specify the network name, the security key and the type of encryption. Despite checking the 'Start this connection automatically' box, it does not save the settings.

To Watching the Net: I have a Vista wireless laptop that works fine D-Link Router. Do you have any resource material that covers this type of issue? I find lots of good stuff that covers the opposite hooking a Vista into an XP wireless setup. Thank you for your consideration. Sorry, Vista is neither easier nor more intuitive. To start with, simply by moving every single parameter to somewhere other than where it was, MS has made it harder on everybody.

Then there are the piles of extra things to set, unset, unlock, whatever. Researching to get a new laptop on a secured network that works just fine with two XP laptops, three Linux devices, and a Mac, I have even found suggestions that it takes creating a new entry in the registry. If MS had spent half the effort on evolving XP, instead of making all new chrome with less functionality, maybe it would have worked better.

I don't know if anyone can help me, but I was running XP on my computer until a virus made me wipe the whole thing clean, and Dell gave me the Vista installation CD instead. So I installed Vista, and I am not sure on how to connect to the internet in my apartment. I live with 2 other people, and we have a wireless router in the living room, but somehow my computer is not picking it up. When I go into the 'Set up connection or network,' there is no option for me to manually add the wireless router.

Is there a step that I am missing? Or some form of hardware. Any advice would be helpful. Do you have any problems connecting to a hard wired router or modem?

I was able to connect to our wireless network just fine for months, than the day before i lost connection. On the other pc, i can stil see the network broadcasting and i can connect to it the laptop refuses to see and connect to it even after the following steps:. In the Start Search dialog box, type: Click Run as administrator. Restart the computer C 2. Restart the computer D http: I have done all that is said and still i cannot see the network nor can I connect to it after manually adding it.

I am about ready to light it on fire if that would work, but I still have hope for someone out there to help me. Hi Team I am having problems trying to setup Vista Premium on wireless. I am not sure whether it is a problem with Vista or the wireless router settings. I tried all other security options and it still doesn't work It picked up automatically by the laptop but it doesn't connect. I also have a problem accessing to internet using my wireless router. I checked my network connection details: I began testing mtnl 3G jadoo dongle and anticipating that it should work without realizing that teracom is not listed into the supported dongle list.

After drilling for more than 10 hours and reading everything available on internet about this specific problem, I finally realized that this is not the right time to end the story. I had a word with the shop owner and because he made me sure that TP-Link would work he agreed to accept the fact that TP-Link will not work in this case.

Shop Owner helped me so much through out the process, he made numerous calls for me to resolve the issue rarely seen in India. You have to buy the supported dongle with D-Link. I was keen to end the story so I bought D-Link Dongle too. I came back and inserted the MTNL 3G sim into it and things have started working after some changes into the router Defaults will not work. Make sure internet is active on the sim. All bits and pieces must be working. You will see the anchor sign usb sign has started blinking.

Not its time to configure the router. Open your browser and type You can ask your service provider for these settings. Can you briefly describe how you do the settings? Sorry to add on, I cannot save the settings at all. Not sure why, click and nothing happens. So now the internet icon on the is blinking only. Hi Sir, Thanks for the reply. All I know is changing password. I just set up as normal, set password for both 2. Enter and change the mode to wireless repeater extender.

From there, I went into wireless settings as the setting options becomes limited. I saw a scan button and click on it. I saw all the wireless networks available. If you are using Windows 10, all you need to to is open your Explorer windows, click on Network, and wait for both router to appear. Once appeared, you should be able to connect to the internet.

Yes Im using Win10 and accessing thru the network tab, much simpler. Get your NUC today from our partners. Page 1 of 2. Are you using Starhub DNS? Do feedback if problem still persist. Yes, do swap around. Which ever give you a better experience just go ahead. But I would recommend Asus due to a new model and firmware upgrades and better support.

DIRL already very old router.. I'm unable to upload anything to it from desktop.. For 3 You need to input the pre-shared key. For me it takes a few minutes to connect the 2nd router to the 1st router.

Asus RT-AC1200g+ or D-link DIR-868L?
