Re: Missing address book
Your PC has been taken over by a VIRUS (or, more likley, you have ROOT KIT / TROJAN installed and you are now part of some criminal 'Bot Net').
I assume you know nothing about Internet Security, so I recommend you either get someone who does (to 'disinfect' your PC) or remove your hard drive and throw it away ....
1) FIRST thing to do is make sure your ROUTER has a bulit in FIREWALL = a lot of the 'free' ones don't ... and install a SECOND Firewall on the PC (ZoneAlarm or similar) ... and DON'T turn off your Firewalls so you can play games or download movies (get someone who knows to 'open' ONLY the 'ports' needed)
2) Only use an an Operating System that Microsoft supports for decent security .. Windows XP or Vista .. and always download and install the Microsoft 'patches' every week (better, use Windows Update) ..

First you need to wake up your printer; second, if your computer is not directly connected to this printer, you need to change the IP address (by detecting this printer; use "Add printer"). Somehow, if the printer power is turned off, it changed its IP address.
When you are at home, open the command prompt on your desktop. Type the word "tracert" followed by the name of the website you wish to visit. ex. www.facebook.com for Facebook. the computer will then load up an IP address for the website. copy and paste the given IP address into the adress bar and it should successfully navigate you to your desired website. Good luck!
Hello Good day, Did you do the following: 1. Check the network cable. 2. If you are using IO, check the connection between the IO and the patch panel. 3. Check the IP Address and Domain name. 4. Check the computer name and the workgroup you are in. 5. Last, check the pc if the built in or LAN card is still functioning.
DNS-servers translate names, such as 'www.fixya.com' to IP-addresses, because routing of IP-packets on the Internet is done using the IP-addresses, not by using the names of each computer.
If you have a router between your computers and your cable-modem (or DSL-modem), then the router can automatically supply the "Primary DNS Server" and "Secondary DNS Server" and "IP Address" to your server computer, if you configure the network-adapter on the server to "automatically obtain an IP Address".
As long as you leave your server running, the "dynamic" IP-address that it obtains will, in effect, become a "static" (namely "non-changing") IP-address.
This issue could be caused by a few things in your config. First things to look at is your networking (taken past the point of ensuring the addresses are proper, same subnet and so forth) - can you ping the DC and the DNS? If you can ping can you resolve with an nslookup? Are you using DHCP - is it running? Do you have an active firewall?
The suffix's at the end of your post are troubling - is this a copy and paste of the error message or was it keyed in? Do you have a copy of your DCDiag.txt?
Run some NETDIAG tests such as NETDIAG /d:domain and/or NETDIAG /fix which should provide you with more specific information that will pinpoint the issue (hopefully).
