Question about Network Terminals

1 Answer

Network cable stopped being recognized

I've used this computer with a cat5 connection to the router for years.  The other day it just stopped recognizing the connection and says "a network cable is unplugged"  Other computers get internet just fine from the same cable. i have the same problem i tried re-instaling drivers, everything, the connection light doesn't even come on, the only thing i can think of is i just install ATI Catalyst Control Center, maybe somehow the drivers changed something i don't know. Device manager says the card is working fine. I really need help

    Ya i would do that but i've used up all available PCI slots, and it seemed like as soon as i got my graphics card working properly i lost internet. i downloaded catalyst control center, installed it restarted then bam, network cable unplugged, light don't even come on. I thought it could be a IRQ conflict, but it doesn't seem to be i have a couple doubles but not on the ethernet card, and no conflicts are registered

    the motherboard is a Asus P4S800-MX and the graphics card uses a AGP slot and is a ASUS AH3450 which uses a ATI RADEON HD3450 GPU Also if its any help the onboard Network card is a SIS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter



    Thanks For your time i really appreciate it, this is driving me nuts!

  • Palinkas Feb 27, 2009

    yes it is a new graphics card, i installed CCC when i installed the card it came with the driver install file from asus. this is a computer i just use on my flat screen to play movies and such added a bluray drive to the computer and a 5.1 sound card i needed to add a card to have SATA to connect the bluray drive, I actually have one more pci slot but can't fit anything in it because of where i connect the power supply to the video card hangs to far low and blocks the space. this is really frusterating me i might just get a USB wireless stick but hard wire is much faster and i'd really like to use it. Do you think there is any hope

Ati catalyst is for a graphics card.
it would not have issues.
the card may show as fine, or the drivers may. try the card in another pc. if it is built in try a new card. ethernet cards are just a few pounds.

    what motherboard are you using?
    also what graphics card are you using?
    i'll ask a few pals and see what they think.
    i'm sure we can get to the bottom of this.

    i have that same motherboard sitting on my workshop floor for kicking around when i am pissed off.
    it failed on me a month or so ago and getting anything from asus is a pain. thier tech support is rubbish.
    i'm not suggesting you do this with your motherboard, it wont help.lol

    is it a new graphics card?
    did you install ati when you installed the card?
    what power supply are you using?

    i have a wireless dongle on my sons pc and it works at 52mbs so just over half the speed of a cable which runs at 100.
    i personally use a 108mbs wireless from d-link which needs the 108mbs hub too. but that uses a pci slot. i think the best you could get is 54 from a usb.
    you should not have conflicts between your card and motherboard really?
    i also dont see why catalyst is being a *****?
    you could try rolling back the drivers for your ethernet connection through device manager incase ati driver altered it in some way. also i have found before that windows update can mess up device drivers by telling you that you need a new one when you actually dont.
    if you need help with doing this let me know and i will help you with that.

How to resolve "Limited Or No Connectivity Errors" in Windows


When attempting to set up or make network connections on a Windows computer, you may encounter a Limited Or No Connectivity error message similar to the following:
Limited or no connectivity: The connection has limited or no connectivity. You might be unable to access the Internet or some network resources.

This message can result from any of several different technical glitches or configuration problems. Follow these steps to resolve Limited Or No Connectivity errors in Windows.
1. Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. See Microsoft Knowledge Base article 892896 for details on how to work around this error appropriately.
2. If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.
3. If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.
If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.
4. If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.
5. If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.
To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.
6. Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.
7. If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.
8. If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.
9. If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.
10. If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem  The major  causes for a slow...


Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

NComputing connected to existing Lan network


If your existing LAN has DHCP assigned IP addresses, you will be good to go. If you have statically assigned IP addresses, you will need to enter them in manually into the device. Their website has a very good instructional video on the procedures to hook up the devices. It will work with standard cat5,cat5E, or cat6 wiring.

How do i network my home pc with a wyse terminal.


OK,

That makes sense.

1. Physical network - Depending upon the distance between the terminal and the PC you have the choice of either wired or wireless. It is probably easiest as you have wired cards in both the PC and the terminal and the PC to buy a LAN switch, or use ports on your DSL router (I am assuming that they are also connecting out to the Internet?).

so, plug the PC and the terminal into the switch/DSL router using CAT5 Ethernet cables (straight through ones).

Assuming that you have a DSL router that is handing our DHCP addresses, ensure that both the PC and the terminal are both getting addresses via DHCP. You can easily check this by opening up a command (DOS) window and typing ipconfig. Check that you have an IP address on both boxes (typically 192.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x ranges unless default DSL router config has been changed). In the DOS window on the PC type "ping <remote address you got from terminal>" - you should get a response back if all is well.

2. Now you have connectivity between the PC and the Terminal, you need to get a remote desktop capability if I understood you correctly?

You could use either Windows remote desktop (in XP it is called something like remote assistance). I prefer VNC as it is quick, lightweight and free. You can google this and download both server and client apps.

This should get you into a situation where you can remotely control / view your PC desktop on your terminal. You can of course map drives from one to another.

Let me know if the above needs additional clarification, if it helps please leave feedback accordingly

Cheers

How do I network my dell desk top and my dell laptop


If you are planning on networking two computers or more I highly recommend purchasing a wireless router. Once you have a wireless router make sure that you set your network connection settings, your Local Area network or Wireless (whichever you are using), to DHCP. Connect your system to your router and normally that's it. Also normally with a router it would also come with a CD. For setting up your network you could also use that for easy setup.

Satellite broadband dropping out - Ipstar Satellite modem - Netgear WGR614v7 Wireless Router


Without knowing more about the network, I would suggest replacing the router and see if the problem goes away. Can you see other computers on the network when this problem is occurring? In other words, is the issue with the internet connection only? Or does all network communications cease to function?
