Well... at least ya got a network.
I have two computers sharing a 56k hooked up over a crossover cable and they are both on the same desk :P
I would say unhook everything and start over.. maybe?
March 15th, 2002, 05:39 PM #7
Yeah Cody you are right, but ya know I had all of mine on a hub and 56k, and I'm not sure the new way is better..
Actually I only went with cable cause it was cheaper than my dial up and additional phone line...
I'm scanning for virus attack now.. this may be my problem.. or part of it.."Sometimes life is just what we make it."

Does your cable company require a specific machine name or only a specific MAC address will be assigned an IP address from their DHCP server?
Did they ask about MAC adress on the machine they had you connect direct to the cable modem?
March 15th, 2002, 05:52 PM #9
Nope, I just gave em the mac addy off the modem..
No machine name.. needed..
Hey I'm a little late, but Welcome to TechIMO Bertbell
I think it's just messed up cause he had me reconfigure everything a 100 times.. 2 hours and no resolution.
But I think I have a virus now too..
Yum frosting on my cake!
Guess I have to break down and head for the store and some AV software that will run with XPoopy..

I had connectivity problems last week. The tech started with connect computer directly to Cable modem, changed settings, etc.
I played nice but finally asked how this was going to change my link light showing no connection with the head-end unit and got a senior tech who then scheduled a tech visit to check wiring. Problem went away over the weekend.
I've been visiting these boards via TweakIt -> SysOpt -> TechIMO. Just don't have enough time to hang and help people much.
I've used NAV 2002 on my new XP machines. You can order it, CD only from AtomicPark for $26, free shipping. I had to buy a copy from Fry's for an emergency install $49.99.

dunno exactly what happened, was thinking maybe you had a corrupt tcp/ip stack (i'm guessing cause someone had you reconfigure everything)
one quick command that you can try out to rebuild the TCPIP stack is by means of using netsh network command shell.
try this command netsh int ip reset mynetsh.log .
This should rebuild your TCP/IP stack and a log of activities would be created in mynetsh.log --- you never have enough log files to go over
(you can name it anything just have to name it)."the chief cause of problems is solutions!"

Oh yeah that's one of the things the tech and I did,,,
I'm hooked up direct but I can't get things going through the router..
I had that poopy virus too.. I chased it for an hour and got it down to 2 files I couldn't delete so I broke down and opened the copy of NAV I picked up today..
A little disapointed at Moo softs The Cleaner.. I ran it on the file and it didn't detect it! sheesh.. won't be buying an upgrade to that one.."Sometimes life is just what we make it."

Good luck with the virus. Have you looked at AVG to see if they have an XP compatable version yet?
March 17th, 2002, 11:29 AM #14
AVG? (I know I'll smack my forehead when you tell me what that is)
Again I've been off line. Thanks to the cable company.. Either that or I"m so good even they can't see what I'm goofing up.
Now that I'm back online I'm afraid to touch anything. I'm plugged in direct on this machine. My network is still down and I have cows to milk."Sometimes life is just what we make it."
March 17th, 2002, 07:59 PM #15
I gave up.. my cows are crying..
I have even dumped the router and added another nic card to my main box. I have everyone on the network through a switch and my main box plugged into the switch by one card and the cable in the other. The others detect the main box as the internet connection, and XPoopy sets em up to connect that way..
But I can not connect and if I try repair the LAN connection then it sez failed to renew IP..
March 17th, 2002, 08:16 PM #16
networking is such a problem...
Why can't it be like Macs? plug it in and it works
March 17th, 2002, 09:06 PM #17
With right side facing, pick up and K 10 sts. on left side, K across
needle #2 and needle #3, pick up and K 10 sts. from right side then K 4 sts.
from 'heel' needle. You are now working with 5 needles again.
Rows 1, 3, 5, 7 : needle #1 K to last 4 sts. K 2 tog through back of loop,
K 2, needles #2 & #3 K, needle #4 K2 , K2 tog, K to end.
Rows 2, 4, 6, : K to end.

That's It!! I'm going to knit my network!
Actually what I just did was go in and assign IPs for the computers that connect through my gateway computer and designate the gateway computer. What the heck XPoopy was doing when it said it was setting up the connection I'll still never know., But we have the cows milked and when I get more nerve tonic I'm going to try and get the router going again.
March 17th, 2002, 10:31 PM #19
What, does your city have a dump return policy? Hmm...gotta move to Utah. Anyway, I can't see why the router won't work. What kind of router is it?
March 17th, 2002, 10:41 PM #20
I think the real issue is my IP is cacheing or something..
I have a call due from tech support again tomorrow. I've found a really good rep to work with.. so we shall see. He even promised to get my router going. I don't think its my linksys it's worked just fine before, he was having trouble pinging me.
And today after shutting down the modem for over a half hour, it took a couple more hours to get an IP addy and then it was the same one I had before I had none..
that didn't make any sense did it
