I have a wireless internet hub with a cable modem in my home and 3 pcs. At one time I had them all communicating and sharing files and our printer without a problem. Then I had to get a new wireless -- the internet works fine, but the pc's won't communicate at all or see each other no matter what windows networking wizard I use! What could be the problem? I've run the network set up on all three pc's several times to no avail. Thanks for your help!

Hi Aimee,

First of all, could you please confirm that the hardware device is actually a hub -- on the device, it should have a make/model word/number on it. Could you please post this information.

Please goto Start --> Run --> type CMD and press OK --> Now type: nbtstat -c -- please copy/paste the results by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing the Enter key, and then posting on this forum.

Also, Start --> Run --> type CMD and press OK --> Now type: net view -- please copy/paste the results by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing the Enter key, and then posting on this forum.

You could also restart all three computers into Safe Mode with Networking, and then try to share files between them; are you able to?

How to restart into Safe Mode with Networking
Please restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Command Prompt and Safe Mode with Networking (along with a few others). Please tap the down key until you reach Safe Mode with Networking, and then press the Enter key. Your computer should now boot into Safe Mode with Networking.

Thanks,
Dan.
