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?

Re: AXIS CD TOWERS
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.

The UDS has the following LEDs, which help you diagnose problems. Power LED (green) Ethernet 10/100 Link (yellow = 10 Mb/green = 100 Mb) Ethernet Half/Full Duplex Activity (yellow = Half Duplex/green = Full Duplex) Diagnostic (red) Status (green) Simultaneously lit Diagnostic (red) and Status (green) LEDs mean something is wrong. If the Diagnostic LED is lit or blinking, count the number of times the Status LED blinks between its pauses. The following table explains the LED functions:
You need to go into device manager (control panel, system, hardware, device manager). Under Network, highlight your network interface card, right click and select uninstall. Once it's uninstalled, reboot your computer and it will automatically install it again.
On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at email@example.com and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!

RJ-45 Pins are with the spring tab down and read left to right. Do you have an RJ-45 Crimping tool?
Just use 568-B or 568-A on both ends of the same cable.
Describe to me exactly how you are set-up. Include the IP addresses of each device and exactly what ports are being used on each device. Could like an IP mistake or in some cases an X-over cable is still required IF your switch does not have does not have a x-o button on it. But that depends how things are connected. These are the 2 most likely but need the above info to diagnose.
