    Works fine on the Vista pc

    The ME pc was set up to use same router via 1.1usb, so should handle the system, just about.

    The NIC, Realtek 10/100, was highlighted by a pc specilaist co to work with ME.

    Where am I going wrong???

    Thanks for trying to assist.....

    running ipconfig gave me the ME IP address, no DNS header/listing - but there was a Subnet Mask header & No.& Gateway data

    When i run the msdos IP ping this works fine - 4 sent & recieved, same for Gateway, but come back as `Unknown host`.....


    1 Should I have set up my ME pc internet connection (LAN) to automatically detect settins or a specific config script, or use a specific proxy server (router/hub, I am guessing?) address??

    2 I have disabled WINS Resoloution, is this ok?

    3 I have disabled DNS Config, is this ok?

    Have spent 4 hours running various permutations on set up, nothing doing, hope you can sort me out.

    Additional info, may be of help...:


    I can network the 2 pcs & access files on the old ME pc, via the router/hub in the `my documents` file, from the new vista pc.


    Even when networke is open between the two pcs, when i ping the ME machine, it is `timed out` - no data sent or recieved.

    Hope this helps

Works on Vista or not? If it does up grade the other PC to Vista as well .....ME is outdated and soon if not already updates will no longer be provided by microsoft. Most likely ME does not support that NIC.

    on the ME PC click on start, run, type: cmd, hit enter, in the black window that apears type:ipconfig, hit enter, should show 3 address (IP,DNS,Default Gateway) type: ping "IP"

    (eg: ping enter....should get 4 packets sent 4 recieved. do it for default gateway as well. if same results type:

    ping, let me know what you get.

This happens when the wireless network card fails to get an IP address from the wireless router.

How to Check TCP/IP Configuraitons

The first step in the troubleshooting process is to check the TCP/IP settings. You can check it by using the IPCONFIG/All command on the command prompt. You will see the configuration results. If you see a blank configuration for a card this means then the card is not assigned any IP address. You can assign the IP address manually or via DHCP server. If you are using the DHCP server for assigning the IP addresses then you can use the following commands to get and release the IP address.
If the computer is still unable to obtain an IP address, then there are several things that can causing this problem such as bad network cable or NIC card, DHCP server might have assigned all the IP addresses from its pool, mis-configured TCP/IP settings, incorrect user name and password. You can try to add a new well configured machine to the replace the malfunctioning machine to see if the new machine is working with its settings. Also see if the driver of the NIC is properly installed or not. In case of driver's problem go to the vendor's website and install a new exact driver for the NIC.

On a Gateway GT5028 - appears the ethernet card was damaged by power surge. We installed a new 10/100 NIC card but Gateway reports it has a problem. Any ideas? Do I need to disable the onboard NIC card...

No you do not need to disable the onboard Network Interface Card. I would suggest to first start by inserting the new NIC card in a dif. Spot.
If you do not have any other spots to insert it, i would double check to make sure you have the correct driver for the correct operating system that you are running, If you know the model # of your nic card i could gladly get you the correct driver. Let me know if this helps. Thanks

Does the card have an IP address? From a command window (type "cmd" in the "run" line) type "ipconfig"
If it has any address OTHER THAN one beginning 169.254, it is working. If it has a 169.254 address it is not connected OR there is no device on your network giving out automatic IP addresses. Do you have other computers or devices connected?

Kyocera 3035 will not print - NIC card red LED flashing

First turn the main Power Switch off, then unplug the network cable from the nic card and leave it unplugged. Then turn the machine back on, when it says ready to copy, press the printer button and print out a network status page. Then hook the network cable back up and go to a pc and click on start then control panel and look for printers and faxes and click on it, then right click on the Kyocera Printer Icon, then click on properties in the drop down then click on the port tab, then click on configure port and check the ip address and make sure it matches the one on the network status page, if it doesn't put in the correct IP Address and apply the change. But if the ip address is right just try printing again. If it prints ok then you are done but if it doesn't try this click on start then run and then type in cmd, then on the screen that opens up type in ping, then a space, then ip address of the Kyocera Machine then press enter, if the Nic card is connecting to the network you should get a reply from the Kyocera's Nic Card if you do then the Nic Card is ok and the Kyocera print driver may have to be deleted and then re-installed. Hope this helps.
