You need to be sure that your network settings are properly set. If you're behind a router, make sure that your computer is in the same network with it. Ping any website like google.com and see the result by entering this command in command prompt: ping google.com. Here is a picture showing what you should see if everything is ok.
If your result is something like "Destination host unreachable" or "request timed out" try this command: ping 184.108.40.206.If you have ping with the second command - you should fix your DNS input in Network settings. Usually for DNS server you should use the IP address of your router.If you have ping in both scenarios - you should check Internet Options of your Browser. Make sure you have entered proxy settings if you're using one. Make this initial diagnostic and write about the results so that I could help you.
The 4 Network connection are blinking means there is some traffic passing on those ports.
Please try to do some ping test between the 4 PCs which are connected to that switch.
If ping test is fine that means some problem with the LED Home but not with the entire box
the information you give sounds like your trying to set up a network, if this is the case you will need to set up the network in the netwok program on your computer....icon found in control pannel or on start menu ....shia
you might have to set up the nic card in the machine. set it to a static IP address (not DHCP), then ping it from a PC..
If you can ping it, then instalation should find it!
I dont understand " time warner connection to rout both computors thru " ?
you should have.
One broadband Modem...
One Router which all pcs and machine's are connected to...
do ipconfig/all to figure out the pcs IP address, arp -a shows the arp table. determine what IP address to give the machine.
the machine should have a nic card with a light on it, if that light is green when you connect the cable, then the nic card is working.
then proceed to install the drivers to the PCs.
Try connecting this printer to a different network wall point in the building. If still no change then move back to original wall point and try changing the connection at the Switch end in the comms room.
If still having problems then try pinging the printer to see if it gives time out or execessively high pings. Got a PC on the network and in windows open a "command" prompt and type ping -t XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX where the address of the printer should be place of the x's.
If linux open a console and type the same thing ping -t XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX.
What the repair option does is more or less disable and then enable the network connection to refresh the systems settings.
This article explains what exactly it does:
? Attempts to renew the DHCP lease, if the connection obtains its IP address through DHCP, using a broadcast message.
? Flushes the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) cache using the command
arp -d *
? Flushes the NetBIOS cache using the command
? Flushes the DNS cache using the command
? Reregisters the NetBIOS name and IP address with WINS using the command
? Reregisters the computer name and IP address with DNS using the command
So if this is what is being done, lets try to trouble shoot each symptom and see what resolves it.
My first inclination would be to check your DHCP scope on your server, and see if your scope is running out of space. Also check the lease length and see if it is set to a small amoutn of time. Your PCs could be losing their IP addresses and thus need to get new ones all the time.
Are you pinging by IP or name. I would do most of the ping tests by IP as that would remove any of the name resolution issues you may be encountering.
Is the wireless brindge doing any type of mac-address or arp filtering?
Also, can machines in the extension always ping each other constantly? This would help narrow down the problem to see if it is an IP problem on the hosts or a possible network equipment issue.
