Hello all,

 

I'm having a slight issue with my desktop and accessing it's files from my laptop:

 

From my desktop's point of view, when I open the network section in windows explorer only the other computers currently connected to my home network appear. I can access them fine and send files both ways; all happy.

 

From my laptop's point of view, the network section displays everything currently connected, computers, speakers, the router and even my desktop. When I attempt to access my desktop from my laptop however, I receive an error saying it cannot be accessed. Furthermore, when I try to ping my desktop's ip, the request times out. The same result also occurs when trying to access and ping from my girlfriends laptop.

 

So, my question is why is this happening and how is it happening? I have file and printer sharing selected, everything is within the same Workgroup and there doesn't seem to be any network adapter updates to be had on any of the computers. If someone could help me troubleshoot this I'd be very grateful.

 

Thanks,

 

Will

Hello and Welcome

Do you mean ISP ?? I have found that this is not unusual..

 

Please Right click on Command Prompt and select "Run as Administrator" to give you full rights. Agree if any password is requested.

 

Now type ping ( Then a Space ) and type google.com ...Next hit Enter and see if you send 4 packets and receive 4 back

 

Not sure from your opening statement if this is what you did.

Hello,

 

I meant my desktop's personal ip address on my home network. I can ping my laptop and my girlfriends laptop just fine from all computers yet none can ping my desktop :/

 

Pinging google is fine from all computers and everyone has internet access,

 

Will

What did you use as the ping number, and why did you want to ping yourself  ?

Please download MINITOOLBOX and save it to your desktop.

As per the Screen Shots shown (click to enlarge)

Once done, close all browsers that may be open. You may need to Right Click on the program icon and select Run as Administrator

Only tick the boxes to the left, nothing else.

Then click Go at the bottom.

 

The program will take a few minutes to gather information for the report.

This will show your operating history, without showing any personal details relating to you.

 

A Report will open in Notepad form, would you please copy and paste that full Report back here in your next reply..

 

Thank You..
