Question about SunFastEthernet SBus X1059A Network Adapter

1 Answer

SBUS I own a SUN SPARCstation 5 someone gave me a long time ago and seeing about using it as a 2nd computer for internet search next to my IBM Netvista M42. I took it apart and it has 2 sticks of RAM unknown of there sizes and No Hard Drive. It powers on fine and I have a VGA Adapter for it and plug it in and the screen comes on saying something about No keyboard found and turns off screen. So I guess I have to find the right keyboard for it, I read the online manual witch downloaded and the keyboard houses the mouse port on it So I would need that type of keyboard. It says its Max RAM is 256MB and has 170MHz, witch still would run Windows XP Pro. My question is do they make a SBUS USB card? the SBUS is like todays PCI cards that fit into the desktop. I would like to have one USB port atlest, wouldn't mind being 1.0

No, the USB standard is not supported on the Sparcstation. Also, Windows XP is for x86 machines, not sparc based machines. You'll be able to run UNIX and its varients. Also, its a RISC based processor, which will give you a lot more punch than the x86 machines you're used to.

Of note, the TI 170 mhz procesor has issues with linux.

You'll need a sun keyboard for the machine.

Are you connecting to your own wireless router? If yes, have you changed anything in its configuration, or inadvertently reset it? If you're connecting to someone else's router (neighbor, etc.) it could be that they have locked you out. Does the wireless network show as secured? This sounds more like a security issue than hardware or driver.

If you can PING your gateway, then there was no need for the 'WINSOCK FIX'.

Access the web-server "inside" the router, and look at the table of DHCP clients -- confirm that your computer's "wired" and "wireless" connections are listed, and that they have been assigned IP-addresses.

The router should have its own 'PING' interface, so try PING-ing to 'ns.watson.ibm.com' -- you should get output like:

Pinging ns.watson.ibm.com [129.34.20.80] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 129.34.20.80: bytes=32 time=126ms TTL=241
Reply from 129.34.20.80: bytes=32 time=103ms TTL=241
Reply from 129.34.20.80: bytes=32 time=91ms TTL=241
Reply from 129.34.20.80: bytes=32 time=93ms TTL=241

if your router has an Internet connection.

My dell d600 wont open web page but is connected to internet


Perform the Internet Explorer setup:

1- Open Internet Explorer and go to [Tools] and [Internet Options]
2- Click on "Connections" tab
3- Click on button that says "Setup" and follow the on-screen instructions

If the above doesn't work and your Internet Explorer worked in the last couple days, make sure your browser has not updated to the new Internet Explorer 8 version.
If you have another computer at this location, check if that one can connect to the internet and surf the web
If the above doesn't work (or is not available), your next option is to perform the "System Restore"
1- go to [Start], All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore
2- choose restore my computer to an earlier time and click next
3- choose a date when you last remember internet explorer working and on the window beside it (to the right) choose from the list either "system check point" or something that may be related to updates or Internet explorer (if nothing else, choose System check point)
4- Click next and after the restart, the computer will tell you if it restored successfully.
5- remember, you can only restore to the dates that are in "bold"

Let us know how it goes and rate us. :)
