Issues with Network

The connection is fine from the modem to the dell powerconnect 2016 and every computer states that it is connected but cannot get onto the internet. A bad storm knocked out the power and ever since it has rebooted none of the computers has yet to connect to the internet.

In order to get to the Internet, a computer must have proper IP connectivity. Lets start by troubleshooting IP connectivity in your office and see where the breakdown is. Open a command prompt on a machine. This can be done by going to Start ->

SOURCE: Dell Powerconnect 2016 All leds are on, solid no blinking.

Had same problem with my Dell Pwoerconnect 2016, power it on and all LEDs light up but nothing works.
The problem was traced to one or both output capacitors ( 10v 680uf ) on the ( tiny ) power supply.
Capacitor symptoms include bulging or rounded tops instead of flat like new one and the rubber plug in base of capacitor protruding.
Capacitors need to be replaced.
I have successfully replaced with 10v 1000uf and 10v 1200uf, both Rubycon and Sanyo brands.
Power to the switch board is now restored and the switch is able to function just fine.
Give it a go and see if it works for your Powerconnect.

That is a good guess. Many of the switches available for home use are unmanaged, and will take any IP address given to them from the router and generate related IP addresses for the various devices on your network.
If your router has multiple Ethernet connections, you may not need the switch at all...just connect your Ethernet cables to the output plugs from the router.

I assume you have connected your switch to any broadband router and then trying to access multiple systems at the sametime.
This is not possible if NAT (Network Address Translation) is not enabled on your broadband router.

The problem you have is unlikely to be related to your server but to the modem and any ISP restrictions placed on your service i.e. it may block remote access or any port 80 traffic not originating from within your LAN. I don’t know much about your situation but it may be worth contacting your ISP to see if the functions you require are available with your hardware and contract type. Attached is a link that may help.

Network my desktop with my laptop


Internet -> Port 1 or 16 ComputerA -> Port 2 ComputerB -> Port 3
I say port 1 or 16 because on older equipment there is an uplink port that is usually either the lowest or highest port number depending on the manufacturer. Set both computers IP addresses to use DHCP in this scenario. If you aren't connecting to the internet, both computers need to have their ip address set manually to a number in the same "neighborhood" (i.e. set A to 192.168.1.2 and set B to 192.168.1.3), then they will see each other.
