    Error 6118 and Net View problem - SOLVED At LAST


    Whilst trying to solve the issue I was surprised to see so many posts about it on the Net. Many 'fixes' were mentioned, many failures too. There are lots of possible factors involved, however the solution to my problem involved no changing of P.C. settings. It is only relevant if you have one or more WiFi Range Extenders in your system, or a similar device that may have DHCP capabilities.

    I have several network wired P.C.'s. They all started to have this problem. Using a Command Prompt window, entering Net View / ALL produced the error, however entering Net View with an individual computer name or IP address worked.

    Selecting NETWORK in Explorer resulted in most connected devices not showing under 'Computers', although they did show under 'Media Devices' and 'Storage'.

    The contents could be accessed in other ways, but the problem really aggravated me. I researched the matter for weeks, and tried dozens of offered solutions, all without result. Most revolved around changing P.C. settings, but I soon realised that since the problem was universal to all connected computers, my solution lay somewhere in one or other connected devices.

    Making sure DHCP was only enabled in one Router, and rebooting them did not resolve the issue. I then
    realised I had other Networked items I had not considered.

    I have 3 TP-LINK Range Extenders (RE305) in my system, which work very well. More research indicated they may have DHCP options, however try as I may I could not access them.

    So I removed all 3 from the system. Went to the P.C., and all my devices had appeared again using Net View and Explorer.

    I was concerned that I would not be able to use the Extenders, but decided to continue slowly. I plugged in the first, then the second as well, no Network problems. All devices showing on P.C.

    I plugged in the last Range Extender, and Error 6118 was back. The solution was to just Setup the device
    again. I used all the same settings. Network devices showing and accessible on all my P.C.'s again.

    So there we are. I would still turn of DHCP on all but one Router if there are several, but in this case the culprit was definitely a WiFi Range Extender.

  3. net view cmd command error 6118

    Hello,

    Error 6118 appears or may appear during program installation, while a Microsoft Corporation-related software program (eg. Windows) is running, during Windows startup or shutdown, or even during the installation of the Windows operating system. The error
    may be caused by a corrupt download or incomplete installation of Windows software, a corruption in Windows registry from a recent Windows-related software change (install or uninstall), a virus or malware infection that has corrupted Windows system files
    or Windows-related program files, or another program maliciously or mistakenly deleted Windows-related files. To resolve the error, we recommend that you follow the steps below.

    Method 1

    Run the System File Checker (SFC) tool.

    Windows may not behave as expected when a system file or some system files are missing or corrupted. What we recommend is that you run a System File Checker (SFC) tool. SFC will help you scan your system files and to repair missing or corrupted system files.
    You may check the link below for instructions on running the SFC.

    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files

    Method 2

    Perform a clean boot. A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run a program in Windows 10. You
    may check the steps provided in this
    link
    .
    Observe if the issue persists.

    Your response will be highly appreciated.
