Question about PC Desktops

Hello. I ran a hardware diagnostics test on my network card (NVIDIAnForce), the cable, link, and loopback test passed, but the Network communications test failed displaying an error code- NC315-1W. Could you tell me what this means? My OS is Vista.

    I get the "error code NC315-1W" when I test the wireless router. The ethernet modem works fine and tests fine. I'm assuming the router if fried. Could it be anything else?

As for the error code, it's fairly generic, but indicates that your network card is having trouble communicating with the network. The good news is this is most likely not a hardware issue, but would most likely be caused by either a bad driver.

It is also possible that a firewall product, such as McAfee provides with it's antivirus software could be interfering with your network card's communications.

After you've tried replacing the driver, disable your antivirus software for a minute and test you connection to another computer or the internet (only a name brand site you absolutely trust) if the problem goes away, then try changing your firewall settings on that program or try a different program altogether.

That should cover most of the problem.

What is mac address?


A Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on the physical network segment. Logically, MAC addresses are used in the Media Access Control protocol sub-layer of the OSI reference model.

MAC addresses are most often assigned by the manufacturer of a network interface card (NIC) and are stored in its hardware, the card's read-only memory, or some other firmware mechanism. If assigned by the manufacturer, a MAC address usually encodes the manufacturer's registered identification number. It may also be known as an Ethernet hardware address(EHA), hardware address, adapter address, or physical address.


Hope this information will help you.

Internet explorer cannot display the webpage


That error means the network cable that runs from the modem or network hub is unplugged from your network or lan card on the back of your machine. If you need further help please repost with the type of internet connection you have (dial up, network, or cable, satelite etc..)

No ip address


Network Card's driver is not installed. Check and install drivers from Device Manager Window.

IP Address can be assigned automatically(through APIPA/DHCP) or Manually.

Automatic:
There is no DHCP server, it takes the Automatic Private IP address(APIPA) or else get it from DHCP server by using "ipconfig" command
Steps: Start>accessories>command prompt>ipconfig /renew

Manually:
Right click on My Network Places> Properties>Right click on Local Area connection>Properties>General Tab>select Internet Protocol(TCP/IP)> Properties>General> select "Use the following IP address> assign IP, Subnet Mask, Gateway and DNS> Press OK Tab.

Cannot connect to internet after storm.


More likely it's the ethernet card or your ISP, (Internet service provider). Do this. Open control panel, open system. Click the hardware tab. Than click device manager button. Scroll down to network connections. Click the + sign which will open the network. Do you see a yellow ! point?
If you do than you need to re-install the network driver software. Click the link below, it will take you to Dell's web site. Listed there will be all the drivers for your XPS 200.
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=XPS/DIMENSION%20200/5150C&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Click the + sign next to Network. Download & install the
Intel - Driver. Also download & install the Intel - HTML file.
There is also a Intel - Diagnostics Utility that will check your network card. This file may already be installed on your PC.
How ever do not run the utility un-till you install the other two files. Once you know your network card is working than it's down to your ISP. That requires a phone call. If your network card fails
you can add a new PCI network card. I'll post a link to some below. If you feel you need a new cable buy what's called a CAT6 Rj45 cable to go from your modem to the PC.
Click the link for PCI network cards:

Cable Rj45 CAT6
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/search.asp?cat=748&keywords=Rj45%20CAT6&mnf=

Both of these you can get at a local store. Opening the link gives you a picture to go by.
If you have more questions just post back here.

Good luck & kind regards.
