Question about Televison & Video
Thinkpad R30 Laptop 700mHz 504m RAM running XP v.2002 w/ SP2 Internet Connection Status says connected and 700+ packets sent but zero packets received in 2+hours-- using LAN and DSL currently connecting fine for two other computers incl this one. Both ends of enet cable show green LED's. IE says no connection to Internet is currently available.
To get it to show a "connection" at all, I had to create a manual Alternate Configuration in Internet Protocol (IP/TCP). Without that, in the automatic configuration it wouldn't connect at all, Network Connections said No Connection, was trying to connect using a very strange gateway address with subnet mask 255.255.0.0, both of which are incorrect for this network, and in that configuration it was not receiving an IP address. Remember I have now given it a manual IP address so possibly it's still unable to automatically receive and may not be connecting to the router for an IP adress.
I notice in Local Area Connection Properties it has installed a second IP/TCP named Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 which another XP laptop I'm running alongside it doesn't have. I have turned off this MS TCP/IP version 6 but it seems to have no effect.
We are using software called Brainware Columbus to do Remote OS Deployment, Software Deployment & Remote Support. We have had LANDesk installed on all our computers, and since we uninstalled LANDesk and installed McAfee 8.7i Enterprise, we have had some difficulties with some computers where they show they are connected to our Wired Lan, but their IP settings have dissappeared, the settings are blank. When you click on the repair option for the network, it gives an error straight away, and we have also tried Uninstalled & Reinstalling the NIC, that also doesnt solve the problem. Please help
