In regards to this issue: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry879480, I don't understand what they mean by "Note Values may range from 0x1 to 0xC. These values are equivalent to 1 to 12 in decimal notation." The Knowledge Base article can be found here.

Can someone help me about the 0x1 to 0xC thing? I'm no newbie when it comes to computers, but I'm not an expert either. Reading the above issue may help.

Any help is much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Daniel in Tulsa

Hmmm...I just went through that and I don't get it either.

I left the default at 0 and my connection is still working fine. Try that and see if there's any change.

I just closed IE and came back onsite so leaving it at 0 doesn't seem to do any harm.

The suggested link may be another non-fix.

Well I don't even have that entry in my registry. It said to create one, but I don't know what integer or "code" to put as the value. I don't know what 0xC, etc even means... lol

I followed the instructions...which creates the DWORD value of 0.

I ignored what I assume is hexadecimal chatter :thumbsup:.

You could type 12 in decimal then change the value to hexadecimal.
But if its working then there is no need.

The reason for the note is that the article is instructing you on how to "increase the value of the IRPStackSize registry entry".
So, when you get to Step 4 it tells you to "type a larger value" (larger than the default value of 0).

The note specifies that the hexadecimal values from 0x1 to 0xC are the valid larger values (0x0 being the default value of 0)

0x0 = 0
0x1 = 1
0x2 = 2
0x3 = 3
0x4 = 4
0x5 = 5
0x6 = 6
0x7 = 7
0x8 = 8
0x9 = 9
0xA = 10
0xB = 11
0xC = 12

And, if you continue (these are above the accepted values that are cited in the article)
0xD = 13
0xE = 14
0xF = 15

Well folks, I added that entry into regedit, set at 12 (it changed it to hex for me) and I still get the same error message. What gives?

I have a small wireless home network, but am having troubles with it recently. I only have two computers on the network, my laptop and my desktop. I have no problems connecting to my desktop from my laptop. But when I try to connect to my laptop from my desktop it gives me an error saying I don't have permission.

The error I get when I attempt to connect to my laptop through the network says "___ is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Not enough server storage is available to process this command."

So I was referred to Microsoft Knowledge Base here.

I tried this method first on my desktop, to no avail. Then I tried it on my laptop, which resulted in not even being able to copy/paste files on my desktop, which I was able to do before and during the issue on my desktop.

I'm not a total newbie, so I understand the basics of networking. I even deleted the shortcuts (on my laptop) to my shared folders on my desktop, then tried to use the "wireless network setup wizard", to no avail.

So, as you see, I am in need of some serious help. Any help is much appreciated.

PS: I have a couple of other threads on here regarding the same issue, but a member suggested that I start a new one since I was linking to other posts that I made on the same topic.

Kind Regards,
Daniel in Tulsa

No, no...that message was for the mods or advisors :thumbsup:.

You see, they can manipulate the posts and join the two separate links. They do this all the time when it's known that there are multiple posts by one OP regarding the same subject.

Just sit back and wait for it to happen, my error for not making it clear :flowers:.

Okay, here's the status on this issue:

On my laptop, in my Network Connections folder, it shows that my Local Area Connection has a Network Cable Unplugged, Firewalled. This is also shown in the system tray. I'm still unable to share files either way.

I never use ethernet cable to connect to my desktop, it has always been via my wireless router, which I have reset a couple of times, hoping that would solve the problem. The "IRPStackSize" solution did nothing to help.

I'm really stuck now. I don't know what to do next... Again, your help is golden!

PS: The remote folders appear in the network node on my laptop, but I get an error sound when I try to connect to the docs on my desktop. Vice versa for desktop to laptop.

If you have an ethernet NIC enabled (with drivers installed)...and you don't use it...it should show up as a network cable unplugged. That's normal :thumbsup:. If you want to remove that, you can do so by disabling the unused ethernet connection...either in Device Manager or in the BIOS.

I don't know anything about wireless NICs/connections...I'm still using ethernet cables as my personal preference.

Since one system can connect properly to the other via your router, I would rule the router out.

If the settings for each connection of the home network are the same (exactly), then I have no clue as to why connectivity between the two systems is awry.

To check the settings...look at each connection's Properties. Ensure that each protocol, etc. reflected...is identical on each system.

Ensure that there is no firewall interaction that might not allow access to the other system.

Beyond that...I can only suggest that you wait for inputs from those who have experience with wireless connections.

Do you have any other access problems on either system? Running a program, accessing data, etc.?

The one other thing that I can suggest...is to review Event Viewer errors for the system with the connection problem. Seems to me that there ought to be a clue in there for whatever is impacting your inability to connect/share.

Here's something to try to see if it's the network or the computers that are causing the problem.

1) Create a new, administrator account on each computer with exactly the same name and password (you can't just change an old account because of the ways that Windows operates). This is called "Account mirroring"
2) Shut down the systems, then shut down the router
3) Wait 2 minutes and then restart the router.
4) Wait another 2 minutes and restart each computer
5) Log in the new account and see if you can access the other computer then.

If you can access things, then it's a permissions issue within Windows. In short, everything in Windows is granted permissions for each different group that exists. In home networks (workgroups) the default permissions are usually those of the Guest account (even if it's disabled) - so you'll only be able to access things that the Guest account could access (things like Shared Documents, etc)

The two easiest ways around it are:
1) To store all the shared stuff in the Shared folders (Shared Documents, Shared Photos, Shared Music, etc)
2) Use mirrored accounts to effectively enable shared access to resources other than the Shared folders.

Okay: At this point when I restart my router, both my laptop and desktop say that "a network cable is unplugged". This being a wireless network, I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do...
