Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer


I have replaced the controller, NIC, and the cable. I have LED lights that are a constant green. I can connect via laptop directly to the tower and access the CD's, but when I try to run a ping to my servers it shows as being down, I have link lights and all connections are good. By default the DHCP places an IP address on the Tower, I have disabled this and assigned a static IP address, any Idea why I can't see this server?

I am sorry, but this is not really my area of expertise. You could try Ekse or Benimur who are good at networking.

You do not have to rate this post, as I did not really provide a solution.

Good luck!

Netgear WGT624 v2 - wireless connects ok, wired doesn't

Well, there are several options to look at.
First, make sure that your software settings are ok.
  • Check Control Panel -> Network Connections. Is your LAN connection enabled? Check your TCP/IP settings and set IP address and DNS to Obtain automatically.
  • Can you ping your router? Open a command prompt (Win-key+R, type cmd and in the next window ping
  • Do you have MAC address filtering enabled on your router? If so, disable it for now. Also check if your router reports your PC as connected. Go to the main menu of the browser interface, see under the Maintenance heading and select Attached Devices.
Then check the hardware:
  • Test your Ethernet cable connections and replace the cable with another one for testing. (If you don't have a spare one, switch it with the one from your modem to your router. If your laptop now looses it's internet connection, you know it's this cable.)
  • Are the green and yellow lights on your NIC (network card) blinking? Although very rare, but these things can die (had that before). If that's the case then you have to replace the card. If it the onboard-NIC (part of the motherboard), get a PCI card and put it in one of the empty slots.
That's all I can think of right now. Let me know about yor findings and then we take it from there. If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

WS-65513 Blinking Green Light

I have a Mitsubishi MITWS-65813.
The green led light constantly blinks. I tried the reset button and green light is still blinking. I unplug the tv, waited a few days, then plugged the tv back in, the green light still blinks. I have a lot of experience with soldering. Do you have any suggestions or can send repair directions/protocol for the DM board.
via email? Thank you in advance for your help. Your help is much appreciated!

I am assuming that you are referring to the tower (desktop) as the server while the laptop is the client. While the client can access the server's CD drive, you can not ping the server. A couple of ideas:
1. verify that both server and client belong to the same Workgroup;
2. verify that both server and client have the same Subnet Mask and that their satic IP adds are near each other;
3. Server's firewall settings/configurations does not allow/prevents ping response; and/or
4. the server might be using Zonelab, McAfee Firewall, Microsoft ICF SP2 or some other form of port blocking.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Axis Cd Tower


I have a very littler idea about your problem,it would be better if you can consult another expert about this.
If you need any other help let me know.

Can't see the Axis over the network

Solid green lights usually mean no activity. Have you checked the Network Card properties and made sure you are using DHCP? Are you plugging into a switch? Is the switch on the same network as your DHCP server? Have you tried different ports on the switch? Also, is the duplex set appropiately?
