Why am I connecting to TWO wireless networks at the same time? by Jeff Wisnia
I'm sing a Dell Inspiron 530S with Vista. I've moved to a new location with Comcast wireless. Which was setup for me by Comcast with a user name and password. My user name is Monkey20. When I Install Monkey20 and look at the network and sharing center I see TWO networks installed: "Monkey20" (Private Network) and also "unidentified Network" (Public Network)

Unauthenticated Network? by BobP[_2_]
Hi- On some of the workstations on my SBS2003 network the Network and Sharing Center is showing the network connection as "Unauthenticated" and showing a yellow triangle icon. It doesn't seem to have any impact on performance that I can see, but looks messy. What does Unauthenticated in this context mean, and why do some

Zombie HotSpot Won't Stay Deleted by rickman
I have an EnGenius USB wifi adapter and it seems to work better than the built in wifi in my laptop.

DHCP Client service does not start because of dependency failure by Lanny Lin
My user's Dell M1330 laptop recently bought is not able to get connected to networks both with the NIC and the Wireless card. We know the router is not the problem because other Desktop (wired connection) and Laptop (wireless) can connect to the router just fine. The problem is basically because the laptop NIC is not getting an IP address assigned by DHCP server, and further investigating...

Can't Network Vista-Vista-Mac by DeniseStokes
I have 2 machines running Vista and 1 running Mac Leopard. I can't get them to play nice. The wireless network is connected to the internet through my Mac (airport). All computers can access the internet. My desktop (vista) can reach a mac location I created by adding a network location on my computer. My laptop (vista) can't reach the Mac at all. The worst part about it is that my 2 vista...

Can Google's Chrome OS attack Windows domination of the desktop? by Ben[_12_]
The folks at Google seems to think that the desktop is ripe for the taking and plan to release Chrome OS. I wrote a piece on Chrome OS, with an accompanying video, at: http://windows7reports.com/2010/11/16/google-chrome-os-arises-to-challenge-windows-7/ Realistically, what do you think Chrome's chances are vs. MS Windows 7 or Vista? Is the idea of a browser-based OS appealing to you? Can all...

Wireless network connection lost frequently... by ogman
I have several machines, 2 Windows notebooks, a Mac, and another Windows desktop running XP, that all keep their network connection perfectly. The only machine that drops the connection constantly is the one running Vista. I'm using a Linksys WUSB54GS wireless card and a Linksys WRT54GX router, and this equipment worked fine under XP. The computer itself is more than sufficient to run...

Reset Network Adapter All the Time by Barbara Governatori
My Acer desktop computer with Vista worked fine hard wired to a wireless router that connected my HP laptop with Windows 7 until about 3 weeks ago. Now whenever the desktop wakes from sleep mode I have to reset the local network adapter. I have tried setting up a static IP address, updating drivers, using Microsoft FixIt (twice) and just about every suggestion in the web and nothing works. ...
