Windows Home Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows Home Server computer connected via ethernet to a quest wireless modem. My other computers access this modem through an Actiontec wireless network. I have no trouble backing up any of my computers to the Home server. But when I run the Home Computer Restrore disc to try to recover one of the backups, it gets to the point where it tries to connect to the Windows Home Serv er and says that it cannot find it. What do I do to fix this?

  • All you can do is run a cable for the restore. If you have security on your wireless network (as you should) the Restore CD will not be able to connect to your server; it doesn't have any way for you to enter the information required to authenticate.
