Hi Poonamhe,

If your home network is a typical network with a basic consumer router and PCs you'll require a new router or firmware update, as most routers currently only support IPv4. Installation of protocols already built into Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X. Windows Vista and Mac OS X already support IPv6 natively and Windows XP only requires the addition of an IPv6 protocol driver. It's possible to run IPv4 and IPv6 on the same systems on the same network without problems.

Because TCP/IP operates lower layers of the "OSI model", the vast majority of software applications will work perfectly without modification. Only software that makes changes to or makes direct use of lower-level TCP/IP functions will need to be replaced and this is somewhat rare.

Verify that TCP/IP (or other appropriate protocol) is properly installed.

  1. Open Control Panel and open Network Connections or Network and Sharing Center, then click Change adapter settings. The wireless card should be present as Wireless Network Connection.
  2. Right-click the appropriate Wireless Network Connection and select Properties. In the Properties window, make sure that the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) or Internet Protocol Version (TCP/IPv4) is installed.
  3. If TCP/IP is not installed, click Install, click Protocol, and then click TCP/IP.
  4. Once installed make sure that Obtain an IP address automatically, and Obtain DNS server address automatically are checked (if using DHCP). To verify this, highlight the TCP/IP protocol, and select Properties.
Note: Only use a Static IP Address if your network/Service Provider requires one.

8.Verify the TCP/IP address.

  1. Click Startwindows%20start%20button.png, select All Programs, select Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
  2. Type the command, ipconfig. This will list the IP address for the local machine.
  3. If this returns a 169.x.x.x or 0.0.0.0 address, then type the following commands;
    ipconfig /release and then
    ipconfig /renew.

    You should then receive a TCP/IP address appropriate to your network, along with a Default Gateway address.
  4. Try to communicate with it by typing this command ping x.x.x.x where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the Default Gateway. (i.e. ping 192.168.1.1)
  5. If this does not give a reply (see the example in step 9) or you did not receive a TCP/IP address, go to the next step.
  6. If you are connecting wirelessly, but receiving an IP address, your wireless router/Access Point might need to be reset (unplug power for a minute, then plug back in), or maybe defective. Please consult your wireless router/Access Point manufacturer for further assistance.

9. Ping the loopback address.

  • Click Startwindows%20start%20button.png, select All Programs, select Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
  • Type the command, ping 127.0.0.1. This will send a message to the internal network stack on the machine. You should see a response like this:

    Pinging 127.0.0.1 with 32 bytes of data:

    Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128
    Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128
    Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128
    Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128

    Ping statistics for 127.0.0.1:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milliseconds:
    Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms
  • If instead, you receive errors, then there maybe system corruption or malware installed preventing networking from functioning properly.
  • 10. Verify that the hardware is functioning using diagnostics.

    • Check the web site, http://support.lenovo.com. Choose Download Drivers and Software and enter your particular system. Then under Diagnostic choose the download for your system. If diagnostics fail, please contact warranty support for resolution.
    • Run diagnostics for third party wireless card.
      Note: If using another manufacturer's product, then consult it's documentation on how to run the diagnostics for the wireless card.

CAnnot go internet automatically


Hi,

If you are connection to the internet is wireless try this:

Go to the properties on your wireless adapter. In the "This connection uses the following items" box, unchecked the
internet protocol version6 (tcp/ipv6) box. Most routers don't support this protocol. Unless you have a N router. Then restart your computer. That how I fixed mine.

Hope this helps.

Whats an ip address


An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is usually a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.[1] An IP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing. Its role has been characterized as follows: "A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there."
The designers of the Internet Protocol defined an IP address as a 32-bit number[1] and this system, known as Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4), is still in use today. However, due to the enormous growth of the Internet and the predicted depletion of available addresses, a new addressing system (IPv6), using 128 bits for the address, was developed in 1995,[3] standardized as RFC 2460 in 1998,[4] and is being deployed worldwide since the mid-2000s.
IP addresses are binary numbers, but they are usually stored in text files and displayed in human-readable notations, such as 172.16.254.1 (for IPv4), and 2001:db8:0:1234:0:567:8:1 (for IPv6).
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) manages the IP address space allocations globally and delegates five regional Internet registries (RIRs) to allocate IP address blocks to local Internet registries (Internet service providers) and other entities.

There is an error in connect...........


If the error in connecting to the internet or to a LAN is prevalent with all network adapters, reset the TCP/IP Protocol stack byrunning the following command from the command prompt window:
1. Go to start menu and click on run.
2.Type in cmd.exe and press enter.
3.In the command prompt window,type in the command:
netsh int ip reset C:\connlogreset.log

The command will reset the TCP/IP protocol stack to it's defaults, and the reset data will be logged in the text document connlogreset.log.

If the above fails, disable any protocols that are not needed in the connection, e.g. SLIP(Serial Line Internet Protocol for Linux) as it's only used to connect to Linux servers in a LAN.
If using a broadband modem, disable NDIS driver wrapper from the GSM broadband client software provided with the modem, and update the software if possible.

Why does the facebook could not be open?


Hi,

This problem can occur if there is a mismatch between the configured IP addresses in the Advanced IP Addressing dialog box and those listed in the Server Properties dialog box for the DNS server. This problem can also occur if the TCP/IP protocol is not bound to the network adapter.

User Action:

Verify that the TCP/IP addresses configured in the Advanced IP Addressing dialog box match those configured in the Server Properties dialog box in DNS Manager: 1. Open Control Panel, and double-click Network. 2. Click the Protocols tab, and click TCP/IP Protocol in the Network Protocols list. 3. Click Properties, and click Advanced. Match the IP addresses to those displayed on the Interfaces tab of the Server Properties dialog box in DNS Manager: 1. In DNS Manager, right-click the DNS server name, then click Properties. 2. Click the Interfaces tab, and compare the IP addresses with those from the Advanced IP Addressing dialog box. 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for all DNS servers configured in DNS Manager. If there are no IP addresses configured in the Advanced IP Addressing or on the Interfaces tab of the Server Properties dialog box, enter the IP address of your network adapter. Use the ipconfig -all command at the command prompt to obtain your IP address. Check the binding of the TCP/IP protocol to the network adapter: 1. Open Control Panel, and double-click Network. 2. Click the Bindings tab. 3. Verify that the bindings for all protocols to network adapters are enabled, and that no broken connections exist in the stack.

HOW DO I BLOCK AN IP?...IM GETING HACKED, IT WONT STOP


The easiest means to block IP addresses in Windows XP is to use Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) filtering rules. The primary reason to block IP addresses is to protect your computer from network-based threats, such as computer worms, viruses and other malware. To block IP addresses in Windows XP, you will need to activate and configure IPSeccmd, the firewall that comes bundled with Windows XP. IPSeccmd does not come preinstalled with XP on your computer. It can be found on Disk 2 of your service pack upgrade or downloaded from Microsoft directly.



  1. Install IPSeccmd from your Window's XP Service Pack 2 installation disk.
  2. Step 2 Open the Command Prompt on your computer by selecting "Start > Run" from the primary file menu and type the word "cmd" in the blank text field that appears.
  3. Step 3 Enter the following command at the DOS command prompt to block a specific communication type (UDP or TCP) and port number on your computer:
    "IPSeccmd.exe -f [*=0:PortNumber:Protocol]
  4. Step 4 Open the user interface for IPSeccmd on your desktop, and select the "General" tab under the "Policy" section. Choose the "IP Block" option and enter the specific IP address of the host(s) that you desire to block. Exit the application when complete.

Hi admin30:
Here is some info for you.
EIO menu (networked printers)
The EIO (enhanced input/output) menu appears only when an EIO device is installed in an EIO slot
on the printer (such as an HP JetDirect print server). The items in the menu depend on the particular
accessory product installed. If the printer contains an HP JetDirect print server EIO card, you can
configure basic networking parameters using the EIO menu. These and other parameters can also
be configured through HP Web JetAdmin.
Table 27. EIO menu
Item Values Explanation
CFG NETWORK=NO NO
YES
Select whether or not you want to use
the HP JetDirect menu.
NO: Bypass the HP JetDirect menu.
YES: Use the HP JetDirect menu. You
must change this to YES each time you
want to use the menu.
Note
You must select CFG NETWORK=YES to
display the following items.
IPX/SPX=ON ON
OFF
Select whether the IPX/SPX protocol
stack (in Novell NetWare networks, for
example) is enabled (ON) or disabled
(OFF).
DLC/LLC=ON ON
OFF
Select whether the DLC/LLC protocol
stack is enabled (ON) or disabled (OFF).
TCP/IP=ON ON
OFF
Select whether the TCP/IP protocol
stack is enabled (ON) or disabled (OFF).
ATALK=ON ON
OFF
FG IPX/SPX=NO NO
YES
Select whether you want to use the IPX/
SPX menu and set IPX/SPX protocol
parameters.
NO: Bypass the IPX/SPX menu items.
YES: Use the IPX/SPX menu items.
In the IPX/SPX menu, you can specify
the frame-type parameter used on your
network.
The default is AUTO, to automatically set
and limit the frame type to the first one
detected.
For Ethernet cards, frame type
selections are EN_8023, EN_II,
EN_8022, EN_SNAP.
For Token Ring cards, frame type
selections include TR_8022, TR_SNAP.
In the IPX/SPX menu for Token Ring
cards, you can also specify NetWare
Source Routing parameters, which are
SRC RT=AUTO (default), OFF, SINGLE R, or
ALL RT.
CFG TCP/IP=NO NO
YES
Select whether you want to use the
TCP/IP menu and set TCP/IP protocol
parameters.
NO: Bypass the TCP/IP menu items.
YES: Use the TCP/IP menu items.
In the TCP/IP menu, you can specify
BOOTP=YES or DHCP=YES for TCP/IP
parameters to be automatically loaded
from a bootP or DHCP server when the
printer is turned on.
If you specify BOOTP=NO and DHCP=NO, you
can manually set the following TCP/IP
parameters from the control panel: each
byte of the IP address (IP), Subnet Mask
(SM), Syslog Server (LG), and Default
Gateway (GW). You can also manually
set the idle timeout period.
Print an HP JetDirect configuration page
to verify your settings. However, note that
the print server might overwrite selected
parameters with values that ensure
proper operation.
Table 27. EIO menu (continued)
Select whether the Apple EtherTalk
protocol stack is enabled (ON) or disabled
(OFF).

Fatal exception error


Those are just messages about the stream sockets closing without the protocol closing the connection cleanly. What that means is that the Data network is not configured correctly, I assume somebody made a change or upgraded a network switch and didn't configure it correctly.
