Now, all of a sudden I am having issues access my other computer (where my videos are).
It's sometimes loading, but most of the time it gives me an error message, "Windows cannot access T1000"
I didn't change anything that could effect that?
Note that the other computer can access me without issue.
It's like it can get a folder or two into the structure, and then gives up, and says can't be accessed.
I also removed from the HomeGroup, and then readded myself, but its telling me the password is wrong, even though I just checked and its right. The whole thjing is like falling to pieces, nothing is fracking working now.

Well I did that, and came back with an error message saying that couldn't be found.
Though it's working now? lol
Thanks for all the help, I haven't really accomplished anything, but I learned some things.
I thought I used to be smart with the networking things, but things don't seem to be going well with LAN and WiFi exactly. Even some browsing of sites seem to be having issues (though that might just be YouTube).
And no, I haven't got the new long cable yet. Will probably be next week.

Also, side note.
What is the maximum length I should get for cable? Going to pick up a 25ft cat6 to test from my computer to the router, instead of in the wall.
Though, I might need a bit longer then that, so the next option is 50ft, does that cause issues?
when you say "in the wall", is that cat5e/cat6 in the wall or are you using those homeplug type things where it uses the power cables?

I am talking about cat5e in the wall.
Also, know of a good tutorial on setting up a home network from scratch? (basically, blank system (I would wipe them clean).....and start over)
Also, any good software for me to access my media files over the network, but in a file browser type place, so I can manage them as well? Excluding my current issues with Windows Explorer, I always hated it anyway.

I think right now I am not going to do anything, because I am living with my parents, so I won't be here that long, and it's not like I am getting bad speeds or anything. Also, need to save money before I can build my new server.
Ideally, I would have my main computer with Windows 8, wired directly into the router.
I would then have a server computer (if thats a real server, just a computer, or a box type thing) plugged directly into the router. And of course, router into modem.
The way I do things so far is I use Windows Explorer (by the way, I hate homegroups, and dont normally use them, I created it to see if it helps) and I move and edit files on the server from my computer. But it's a bit annoying like that. Though if I get the money and get a real server, I will have more space, and probably have all items going directly into the proper folders and not into my downloads first.
Anyway, I will leave it at this for now and will come back to it if I have too
Thanks a bunch for all the help, you know your stuff

I remembered Monoprice being much more expensive for shipping to Canada, which is why I didn't look there.
$12.52 for 50FT is very good, but that is only cat5e, if I am going to buy cable I might as well buy cat6, which would be $14.38 to get.
