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) ..

Why is my printer offline?

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.

Cannot connect to server

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.

Hope it will help you. Good Luck.

When changing IP address the Computer has access to the internet, why IP given is NOT going to the internet

It may be use already. Especially if on DHCP. ipconfig /renew is the command. The IP does not matter as long as it works.

Duplicate if static.

Newbie to servers, ive been given an computer with server 2003 loaded on it it has been through the first stage setup and now im with a few things, mainly when i run the email and internet connection...

DNS-servers translate names, such as '' 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.

Join Domain

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).

How to find the server name

I will assume "server" is a domain controller running a dhcp server.

you need to type two commands.

command 1: ipconfig

This will tell you the ip address of the server (gateway)

command 2: ping -a (ip address of the server/gateway)

adding -a to ping resolves the ip address back to the hostname.

Hope this helps!

NAS Drive by ADS Tech not recognized on network.

You can log into your router and find out what IP address has been assigned to your NAS unit.

Then start up Internet Explorer Or Firefox and go to the address (replace with the IP address of the NAS unit).

That should get you in. Then you will have to set the workgroup and share parameters. Once you have it setup you can always map the NAS unit and use it as a external hard drive.
