Disable network password


do you get any error messages? open cmd from another computer and ping the pc in question (assuming this pc gets an ip). if "ping" works then try net view \\computer name or ip. you should be able to see the shares or get an access denied usually 5.
Try that and let me know what you got so that i might understand the root of the problem.

Slow ping time


Hi,

Ping depends on the server network and not the configuration of the laptop.If the ping varies, you need to check the network configuration.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

The printer can not be ping from the network PCs


try assigning a different IP to it and see if it can be ping afterwards. If the same thing happens even with different IP, chances are, its NIC is defective and needs to be replaced.

WAP54G bricked power led blinking LAN connection shows as not connected


you did not specify where the wap is connected when you pinged it. Try this, connect the wap54g to your pc. Assign static ip 192.168.1.5 on the lan of the pc, then ping 192.168.1.245. if you can ping you should be able to access the configuration page. if the power is still blinking you can upgrade the firmware

HP 9040n NOT RESPONDING


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.

Why do we always have to click repair


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: http://www2.lut.fi/atk/palvelut/PCTUKI/Windows/XP/Repair_NetWork_Conn.html ? 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 nbtstat -R ? Flushes the DNS cache using the command ipconfig /flushdns ? Reregisters the NetBIOS name and IP address with WINS using the command nbtstat -RR ? Reregisters the computer name and IP address with DNS using the command ipconfig /registerdns 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.
