SOURCE: Internet

There is no utility that comes natively with XP to monitor traffic on an ICS connected LAN. I assume you are not directly connected to the ICS computer, and are running through a Switch or Hub? And you do not have access to this to see how many lines are connected?

If this is the case, you can download and install a packet sniffer and place it within the LAN in front of the ICS computer. It will 'see' all packets traveling across the wire, and report the MAC addresses and IP Addresses to which they are bound. Since every NIC has a unique MAC address (and IP Address), you can see how many computers (NICs) there are in the LAN, and connected to the wire.


You can also use a utility like LanGuard Analyzer to search for all computers on the LAN:

The last time I checked the trial version is fully operational for 30 days.. I use it in my Corporate LAN to monitor all 1000 computers in my domain.

One other thing to keep in mind, since ICS uses the Class C subnet (this cannot be changed), it has a limit of 254 clients that can be attached.. just an FYI..

Good luck!

SOURCE: Proxy Server Refused Connection

If you're using Firefox, click on "Tools" at the top of the page, click on "Options" which is at the bottom of the list that comes up, then click Advanced, choose Network from the four tabs below that. There should be a sentence "configure how Firefox connects to the Internet". Click on the button next to it that says "settings". and make sure that "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" has a dot in the little circle. If not, click on it and click on OK.
You may have to shut down Firefox (your internet browser programme), then try getting in again. Should have sorted it.

SOURCE: the Netflix app on my

I had the same problem with my Vizio XVT473SV. I couldn't find the Netflix Activation Code. When I clicked on the Netflix App, the TV would ask me if I wanted to connect to Netflix, then it would ask me if I was a Netflix member. After clicking yes to both, it would tell me it couldn't connect to the Netflix server, check with After a couple hours of troubleshooting, the solution was......your first use of the Netflix App has to be via the Ethernet Port/Cable. This will give you a screen with the Activation Code, after you activate the code in your Netflix account, you can go back to using WiFi on your Vizio TV to connect to Netflix. Step by step instructions are...
1) Exit the Vizio Netflix App.
2) Physically connect an Ethernet cable to your broadband (just temporarily)
3) Check to make sure the Vizio is using the Ethernet port and not your WiFi (Apps Button - HDTV Settings - Network...may have to reboot the TV to get Ethernet port connection)
4) Start the Vizio Netflix App
5) Click OK to start the Netflix App
6) You should now see a different screen that gives you the Netflix Activation Code.
7) On your Computer, Login in to Netflix,
8) Click on "Your Account & Help" link on upper right corner
9) Scroll down to Watching Instantly on your TV or Computer section
10) Click on Activate a Netflix Ready Device
11) Enter the Activation Code shown on your Vizio TV and click Activate
12) Once your Netflix account (on your computer) shows it is active, your Vizio TV will automatically log in. You should see your Instant Queue.
13) Exit the Netflix App, unplug the Ethernet cable, Turn Off your Vizio TV.
14) After 20 seconds or so (remember the TV is software driven), turn the TV back on and your WiFi should connect again.
15) Use your Netflix App and this time it should automatically connect via WiFi
note: just make sure that your wireless DSL/Cable Modem or Wireless Router is not blocking your WiFi connection request from the Vizio. You can check the connection status in the modem/router or in the Vizio in the HDTV Settings - Network.

Unable to connect netflix

I am assuming you are using a PC? if not use a PC on the same network, Click the start menu in "Run" type "cmd" in Windows 8/8.1 just type "run", once it is open type "ping" if you get a reply from that IP address, Your network can access Netflix servers and type "" in the browser where "" would go. if not, the modem or network firewall maybe blocking it. Hope this helps.

Connection show as good but internet wont come up

Could be a multitude of things, I would check your proxies first.
Go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings.

You most likely are not using a proxy server. Ensure your settings mirror the above, especially the "Use a proxy server..." setting.

One other possability: When you say you can connect to the LAN or wireless connection fine, I must assume you are using a router with wireless capabilities.

Just becuase you can establish a connection to your router, does not mean that router has a gateway to the internet. The router is simply used to create a network for file, printer, and internet sharing. It is totally possible to use the router strictly for networking purposes and not for internet sharing.

That being said, I would ensure the cable/dsl modem is securely connected to the router. Also try power cycling both devices. Check the lights on the modem, typically they give a status. Mine has a POWER, ETHERNET, DSL, INTERNET, and ACTIVITY light. Green typically means status is functional, red means it is not.

When my ISP is down, the DSL light will be flashing red. It is time to call your ISPs tech support if that is the case. Check all your connections to be secure and power cycle everything first, your ISP will ask you to do this as soon as you call them, and it does resolve alot of problems quickly.

There is always the possibility of them having an outage.

General rule is always check the physical layer first, which is cabling and hardware. Make sure it's on and plugged in. Then try rebooting it all.

Hope this helps.

for my oppinion the best way is proxy server, because you can control all 5-6000 computers
Every user can connect to internet with password and username.
Also you can restrict (if you want) some ports.
