How To Fix Network to Single PC

TIP: You should click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system speed.

Trying to connect to a network source may sound easy but it can’t help to encounter a problem once in awhile. Your network connection may not be properly configured or there is technical failure. Other times, there is no connectivity on your end. These errors are common examples of network error. It appears when there is something wrong during connection hence it cannot reach its end source. Still, these errors indicate the nature of the issue to help you resolve it.

List of the common network errors:

  • A Network Cable Is Unplugged
  • IP Address Conflict Address Already in Use
  • The Network Path Cannot Be Found
  • Duplicate Name Exists on the Network
  • Limited or No Connectivity
  • Connected with Limited Access
  • "Unable to Join Network Failure" error -3
  • "Unable to Establish the VPN Connection" error 800

From the Forums

A user in the forum details it further:

One of the pc's he no longer requires at work and instead he would like to keep it at home for his personal use but would like to keep his programs and data intact. How do you turn a pc that runs on a network to operate as a single pc? It's a dell pc that's running Windows XP EDIT: I spelt network incorrectly in the thread title   Probably, he won't have to change anything.

Hey peeps, I have a friend who runs his own business (travel agency) he has a network set-up at his work place. Unless his work place used some kindof VPN software, he should be able to plug directly into his modem and surf the Internet. -- Andy  

What causes Network to Single PC

Seeing a network error while you are in time constraints can be annoying but there are still solutions to these errors. Once an error message appears, you can click on the Diagnose option using the Windows wizard to run a diagnosis of the problem. After several minutes, Windows will show you the cause of the problem while also providing the right solutions. However, there are times when Windows may not give you all the answers so you need to fix it manually. First, you need to change your adapter settings. Look for the settings in the Network and Sharing center. Second, reset the TCP/IP. If changing the adapter setting, you can change the TCP/IP. Third is to uninstall network adapters so you can scan and apply any changes in the hardware.

Network printer to single pc

If that will work, must the cable be crossover or straight thro? The IP is
There is no possibility of fitting hubs or anything between the pc's as in different buildings. I have a new printer (kyocera fsc5025n) that I want to connect to a pc via the NIC on the printer, to the NIC on the pc. If I install drivers on the pc, and add printer using tcp/ip, will this interfere with the hpna network already installed?

If it's ok, should the ethernet connector on the pc use a different IP to the one used for the hpna network? Cheers Plbee
Have also posted this query to hardware without replies so thought this may be better.

Thank you. i.e.

set ethernet on pc to and sub to and set static IP at printer. the pc I want to connect to has a USB hpna network device fitted which connects to a distant pc. There is no need to share the printer across pc's ....

I can find the appropriate IP address for the printer, and I know how to add a printer using tcp/ip (I think)
Question is ... just need to access from single pc.

Single PC Wireless Network

Do I need some kind of Wireless Access Point device to act as a Print Server ? so you need a wireless router. I only have a laptop which is currently connected to my DSL modem via USB.

If no PC is cabled to a router, how do I perform admin (e.g.

I am a novice when it comes to wireless networking. What hardware do I need to do this? I have an all-in-1 scanner, printer , fax and i can connect wireless from my laptop to the wireless printer anywhee in the house
If you intend to put the printer near the router than you can connect this voa the ethernet - so you need to make sure you can cable ethernet from your laptop

Do you ave an ethernet / lan on your laptop - if so thats the best type of router - if not you will need a USB router

Get a printer which has a wireless connection - then you can put the printer anywhere. I want to be able to move anywhere about the house without being "cabled" to my modem - that is access the Internet wirelessly anywhere in the house, and have family bring their notebooks to share the internet connection and perhaps a printer. How do I share a printer wirelessly ? Any advice ?

you only need to connect to the wireless router with a cable to do the admin - doesnt need to be connected all the time.

As I said, I do not have or want to have a dedicated PC connected to a router. security setup for my laptop and those of visitors) ?

pptp for single device on network

but anyways I have a 4th device that does not have pptp client software and I need to connect it to the tunnel. on the remote end I gave the machine multiple real ip addresses to bypass the GRE limitations with pfsense. is there an easy way to do this?

single network messaging system

if i need to host a server within my own network thats ok. I forgot what its called. I know for sure it comes with windows 3.1.

any suggestions?

Shit, theres that one messenger that comes with windows. I'm not sure how much that'll help you tho, lol.

eg. i want to IM others in my network but dont want to use AIM, MSN, Yahoo, or the like.

i was wondering if there is an application that would allow me to send messages to other computers within my network, but not relying on an outside server.

XP SP2 network d/load: can use on single computer?

There's an XP SP2 download for several computers over a network - could you just use it for your single computer rather than downloading each time you re-install windows? TIA(have xp home)click here

Provided that it is not pirared yes you can.I sent of to Microsoft for the Free SP2 Cd and it says you can copy and distribute it freely.
they say not to but is that because they want the 6 for it on cd-rom?

monitor a single PC for network issues

is sending/receiving data, how much of it, the destination, etc. is a packet monitoring program, which means that you'll monitor the packets directly.
I "moved" my question set to you from the Windows 10/ZDnet thread...
To monitor a single PC for network issues, which is better?  Glasswire or Wireshark?  Reason for asking:  I am trying to run down a couple of network/internet connectivity issues, I just recently uninstalled Glasswire and installed Wireshark; should I have them both?  Or, did I do the best thing?
Anyone & everyone is welcome to comment! Both programs are different and do not serve the same purpose. GlassWire offers a user-friendly interface that allows you to see and understand what connections are established on your system, what program, service, process, etc.

You'll gain way more information that way, but without the knowledge to interpret them, it'll be of absolutely no use to you. your case, I suggest you to stick with GlassWire and work from there. If you cannot troubleshoot your connection issue, I would ask for assistance in the Networking section.

Why isn't the single user SP2 out yet but the network version is?

The "single user" version is the one they will be putting in Windows Update (from what I understand anyway).


just d/l and install the network version. It's aimed toward's someone that will host it on their own internal server and distribute from there.

I d/l the huge file and installed it no problems.

Connecting network printer to single PC

How can I connect my single PC to to the printer in order to be able to use its <save to folder> (via network) function?

My network printer scanner functions can only work via network connection, but I only have one PC (connected to printer via USB).

Home Network Fine except for a single user ???

I have finally managed to get our network sharing working as it should --- with a single exception, all four machines and all four "users" can access anything anywhere on any of the other machines. I can log in under a different user and access everything that the other user cannot. However, there is one user (who is Administrator) on one of the DELLs that, no matter what I have tried, can only access a single public folder on the other DELL; anything else on the other DELL machine that the user on the DELL in question tries to access immediately gets a notice that they do not have the proper clearance to access and to notify the network administrator, etc., etc. We have four machines on our home network; two HPs with Windows 7 Home Premium; two DELLs with Windows 7 Pro.

This user can access anything on the other two machines.

I have searched and read articles until I am blue in the face, jumped through hoops and burning rings of fire, and near lost what little mind I have, trying to get this situation sorted. What do I do to fix this ? I can click on the text box and it will give me a blinking cursor, but it will not acknowledge my typing.

When I try to simply add this specific user to the permissions list in advanced sharing, it will only let me verify user names "from this location"; it will not allow me to type the name of the other machine, nor change the "location" in any way; when I click "Location", the only ...

Infected network, logs for single computer

TDSS killer reported nothing, so no log included.

Wecome to Major Geeks! What kind of business allows programs like below to be installed? But yes this PC is infected and your Malwarebytes log shows you did not fix what it found. Hmmmm????

If all of your PCs are truly infected then cleaning one may just result in it being reinfected when you put it back on the network. You really cannot expect to get FREE help for a business if you are talking about more than 1 or 2 PCs. And don't you have an IT Department that should be helping you with this.

How to disable network adapter use for a single user

A better explanation:
- Users 1 and 2 should only have access to the wired adapter (Them are admins)
- Users 3 and 4 should only have access to the wifi adapter (Them are users)

I also want that users of both groups can be logged at the same time without gaining access to the other adapter. I had a system with 4 users (2 admins, 2 users) and 2 network adapters (1 wired adapter and 1 wifi adapter). What I want to do is to disable 1 network adapter for each 2 users.

Network 2 computer with a single dialup connection?

I may be able to talk him into getting a cabel connection but it's a lil skeptical. Any ideas? I'm not exactly sure how to go about setting up a dialup network. just assign IP address and subnet masks on both computers under the tcp/ip config (this was on 2 win xp PCs that i did it)

set the host computer to "allow other computers to connect to the internet through this computers connection"

restart both computers

dial up to the internet on the host PC

enjoy the internet on both PCs

my parents have an office with dial up and 2 computers that wanted to share it so i set it up for them. He does have a wap which he want's me to setup as well for the laptop. A laptop and a main desktop.

Alright I'm well versed in networking cable connection but my uncle wants me to network his house while he is only using a dialup connection.

Is it possible to do this? thank-you in advance


doing shared dial up is no differerent than shared cable internet. There are two computers in the house.

Creating a single network from access points

My task is now to turn the wireless into one invisible network. and that signal strength bars are too confusing.

OK so a while back I set up my office for wireless. as in instead of seeing the various access points, just seeing "company name wireless" and being able to connect to it and keep a seemless-ish transition regardless of where you go in the office.

I know what he wants but i'm not particularly familiar with how to do it at this level of business and equipment.

can't you just set them to the same ssid on different channels and let the wireless client roam to the strongest signal?

Good range, full coverage etc. Is there any way to do this with what i have to work with? The guy above me was pleased, and it works alright.

I used some recert netgears we got for cheap, switched them into access points and put them on our back end. The big IT decides he doesn't like having to pick which access point to use. or on the cheap?

Wireless network disappears from a single computer.

In this
screen where your connection is indicated you should see
if it is a Home, Work or Private connection. By this I mean that if you set the Windows Firewall for
a Public connection the security of that machine will tighten. I am pretty sure I have the most updated drivers for my card, and I have swapped wireless cards with other computers and the other ones work fine with this card, and it's still this PC that doesnt do so well. I do run bittorrent on the computer sometimes, but the outages do not always coincide with large downloads, or any downloads, but I have not ruled that out as a possibility.

Any insight would be fantastic. If it isn't, give that a go and see
if the connection is maintained. One of my Windows 7 desktop PC's can usually connect just fine, but occasionally, it decides that there is no wireless network to connect to. All of them function perfectly fine connecting to my Verizon Fios all-in-one modem/router, except one.

I have tried everything from DNS flushes to registry hacks and card drivers. Make sure all Network
settings are matched on both the Win 7 machines.

I have a variety of wireless internet enabled devices in my house running Windows 7, Ubuntu, iPod Touch, and Android.

I'm running out of ideas, any help would be tremendously appreciated. Have you tried the Home Network setting if the machine is
not already set to that? You can change this by clicking on the network icon in
the taskbar (bottom right of sc...

Single Network Computer Cannot Access Internet

I recently set up an old linksys router to act as a wifi repeater using DD-WRT firmware. I'm typing this post from my laptop, running perfectly on the repeater network, as it sits directly in front of the desktop that won't access the internet, which as you might imagine, is terribly frustrating. I'm really stumped as to what is going on, as I've tried everything I can think of to remedy the situation. At this point, however, the problem is isolated to my desktop, which I why I'm seeking help here.

Today, it's not working at all, and won't let me access the internet through Firefox or Chrome on either network despite showing a full internet signal. All of the other devices on the network have totally normal (and better, actually) access to the web. As I said, it appears to be working fine and I do have a thread open at the DD-WRT forums in the event of a router issue. I had a very similar problem trying to get wireless up my shed.

All of these have offered no solution. I have rebooted the computer traditionally and done a "hard" power cycle as well. One time I thought it was fine, next, nothing yet my iPhone was 'seeing' the wireless signal just fine. It appears to be functioning fine, except for the fact that the desktop computer I set it up with cannot access the internet.

I faffed with the advanced settings in the AP, like the preamble, the beacon interval, antenna selection etc., and eventually got it working.

Analogue voice and IP Network over single CAT5 cable

I have put this in networking as it appears to be the most relevant forum. and can't use wireless due to interference from a nearby generator which badly degrades the connection strength. Is it possible to split the CAT5e cable so that the existing network and the analogue/dialup connecetion both run over the same cable? Most telcos use the blue pair for phone line 1

The cable has been in place for some time and works fine. I need to extend the analogue phone connection (for modem Dialup) to this PC, but don't want to run a second cable, too much hassle to install etc. The current setup is a networked (CAT5e RJ45) PC located approx. 40m (accross a courtyard) from my ADSL modem/router.
