I am Anant.
Here's what you can try to fix your problem...

Be 100% sure that you have successfully installed Windows 2003 without getting any error message during setup.And you didnt ignore any warning message during setup. Ensure that said hardware is in the Hardware Compatibitility List (HCL) declared by Microsoft. As you have done a fresh installation of the Server 2003 I would suggest you to see the status of the device driver in the Device Manager. See that appropriate drivers are installed. Also check if there is any update to those drivers. Get it from the vendor & apply it. After drivers are properly installed you self ping the NIC by using

Ping localhost



Its a local NIC's address. If you get reply to this ping request you have correctly installed your Network Card.

Then the next step would be to check the IP address for the NIC using which your NIC will communicate with other nodes in the network. See if its assigned automaticaly by DHCP in your environment. Or you have to configure it manually. If so properly configure IP , subnet mask & gateway if required.
Now check the connectivity to the network.
If you have already done these checks what I would suggest you to check IRQ of your NIC for any conflits.
As you are might be aware of the Windows Firewall introduced by Windows Server 2003, which is capable of blocking ICMP requests.i.e. Request for ping commands. Try disabling it. Or check with your network Administrator for the port you have connected your Server machine on. Check it with a different pc that it works properly.
If it still frustrates you try another NIC on your motherboard.

These are few things you could check for on your computer.
Reply me if it works for you or any other solution the fixed the issue.

No DHCP or proxt DHCP offered

If your computer is working fine then, disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option. It can't find a DHCP server, and is usually used to load an OS image.

For the most part not a real problem. More of a warning. Some corporate models use PXE to mass image.

Have you checked firewall settings. It's possible that the Server's OS has a firewall blocking pings and\or the server is running antivirus software that has a firewall setup again blocking pings.

So you verified ICMP traffic isn't blocked and it appears the servers allow the netBios traffic to pass.

On the client machine, check to make sure the windows print and file sharing is installed and the machine isn't blocking netBios traffic.

Make sure TCP ports 137,139, and 445 are open on the xp machine and any devices in between.

It's acting like the TCP data is being blocked by the client machine.

How to connect a laptop having vista home basic with a xp desktop

Be advised that,
it makes not different to connect one PC/Laptop to another one via LAN because when you connect your system in lan networking you system will be automatically detected if LAN has been set up through a server.
And if not you need to do manually by assigning ID address on bot PC/Laptop.
For that,
first assign an IP address in either Laptop or desktop (IP address must be same category)
ex. (first one)
and second one should be you can up (instead of 231) any number excep 0 but make sure not confliction between other system. means not duplication IP address on same LAN.
once you ae done with IP assigning
Go to
Star>Run>command and hit enter
once you see command prompt then
type there:
ipconfig and hit enter (it shows your ip address) if you wanna have more info then type ipconfig/all
once you are done with this then
you need to ping to your next PC.
for that
type in
ping (means you need to type another PC's IP address here)
and hit etner
if you see like on image
then you are good to go.


Thank you
and rate all answers.

Internet Not Working

I know i'm speaking the obvious, but you are defininatly being on a corporate LAN.

If you are able to ping google, than there is no problem with outside communication.

I'd check the configuration settings of first of all the software on the PC, then connect to the router/network server and see if your ports are being forwarded correctly through your firewall. If my memory serves me right, TCP ports 8000-8099 are used for web browsing, 21-25 are used for FTP access, etc.

It would also help to know if any other PCs on the network are experiencing the same problem or not. If they aren't, you could compare configuration settings in them to determine what to look for and change on the mulfunctioning computer.

if they aren't, your SOL on using that as a method, but still RDP or VNC to the server (or just factory reset the router, if it's a small soho router), and reconfigure/check settings.
