It depends on the network. If it is an office type network for example then manually setting the IP gives the system admin better control over the system.
It also makes it alot easier to track one computer down if it always has the same IP address attached to it.

For a home network, or small network then having it set automatically by the router can make it alot easier for people new to networking.

Both have benefits.. just depends on the environment it will be used in.

Keep getting blue screens / crash dumps. ! inside triangle warning for on the Mass Storage Device and PCI Simple COms controller as well.

The simple coms driver should be a modem or a basic lan card.
In device manager are your network cards all listed?

Is a modem listed, if there is not and you have an rj11 port on board that will be the simple comms device

As for the mass storage device, what do you gave connected to the computer. My PC occassionally had trouble recognising my printer as a printer because it had a card reading slot. I think my windows installation was not in great shape which was the cause of the issue.
Disconnect everything and see if that resolves the issue. If it does try recovering your windows installation to an earlier date. It is just a matter of systematic investigation

I have a used ibm t60 it says i have a internet connection but ie wont load any web pages i also cant load the driver for the dvd so i cant run the restore disc

Hi. Sorry to hear about your problem. First thing to do is to check to see if an update from microsoft has turned on proxy settings for your browser. This is a recently common thing that happens if you let windows update install any and all updates automatically. So to check this you will need to follow these instructions: 1. Open Internet Explorer. Go up to the menu bar and click on Tools, then click on Internet Options. 2. When the window opens, click on the Connections tab at the top. 3. Then click on LAN Settings at the bottom. 4. In that window, make sure that "Use a Proxy server for your LAN" is not check marked. If it has a check mark in the box next to it, click on that box to remove the check mark. 5. Click OK to close that box, then click OK to close the Internet Options box. 6. Close then reopen Internet Explorer and type into the address bar then hit enter.
If google comes up, then your issue is fixed. If not, reply here and we will troubleshoot further.

Hi there i have a toshiba satellite m50 and i have xp home on it and i was wandering if you could please tell me where i could find a ethernet controller, in my device manager it has a yellow and black...


If we are talking about wired LAN driver:

The M50 was distributed with two different adapter versions. Try both the drivers below:

Most common: Realtek Semiconductor Corporation LAN Driver

If it does not work try: LAN Driver- Marvell adapter

If we are talking about the wireless LAN adapter, there is only one option. Here the Atheros LAN driver for M50: Wireless Lan Driver.

You can find the rest of the drivers using the Toshiba download page available here.

LAN port of my laptop hp dv2000 is damaged. I understand from technicians that it is fused to motherboard and would be costly to replace. I am using USB to LAN converter plug. Is this the only...

Aside from having the LAN port repair user a USB to LAN is the device thing to do here to save money because he repair for this type of problem will cost more.

Using a USB to LAN converter will also work just like a regular LAN card on a computer so that will be fine if you think about the performance.
