Question about Antares P-1055 (P1055) Network Adapter

1 Answer

Fiber path not being found.

We use these cards with the Optical Path, not the copper. We never change the dip switch settings. We have had several of these cards fail where the card does not recognize the Fiber link, and tries to go out on the copper link. It is almost as if the dip switch had been set to the copper setting. Any idea if the switch's go bad? Or is the driver chip from the switch to the FPGA bad? Anybody ever try changing that chip? Any other ideas?

Re: Fiber path not being found.

Have you checked the optical connections for dirt? Have you tried cleaning the optical connections? Did you do that correctly? Many people don't know there is a correct way and a wrong way. If you have any doubts about cleaning the connectors let me know and I will give a link to how to do it correctly. Do not use "Dust Off". You'll damage the connectors.

I have 7 wired computers operating from a Linksys BEFSR81 Router / 8 port switch. I would like to add a Netgear N150 Wireless Router so my kids can access the internet from their Wii in the basement . Can...

If my memory is correct even though there are 8 ports you can only use 7 of them. take out the 7th one or a couple of them if you can put them into the netgear. basically follow this: modem to linksys to netgear. as long as that path exsits they will all work. make sure to encrypt the wireless so your neighbors dont slow down your network speed or delete any of your files inadvertantly. You need to unplug from the wall electricity and have all computers off when you do this though so that they can all find then new paths. If you happen to have set up network paths with numbers suc as and so on then you will either need to return them all to automatic or recheck these numbers after as both routers will port semi duplicate paths. When pluggin them in you may want to start plug in all the ethernet ports, then, modem, then plug in linksys plug in netgear.
now turn on all computers and printers and they should find the path automatically.

Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile and is attempting to log you on with your local profile. Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server when you logoff. Possible...

When you "logon" to your local network, your computer is configured to fetch your "desktop" (My Documents and wallpaper and everything else) from a "server" computer on your network.

Was your "logon" to the local "domain-server" a successful login?
Does your local Network Administrator indicate that the "domain-server" is functioning properly?
Does that server's log-file show any error-messages, such as "not allowed to login between 10 PM and 6 AM" (a "security" setting on the server).

Since your "desktop" could not be loaded from the domain-server,
your computer has used a "local" copy of your "desktop",
and it is warning you that any changes will *NOT* be "merged" back to your "network" profile.

Have you contacted you local Network Administrator? What did she say?

Have you tried replacing the fiber cable? It sounds like the connector is loose or the cable has been bent too far.
