Question about HP Broadcom NetXtreme 10/100/1000 Network Adapter

1 Answer

Why do we always have to click repair

We have a main office and an extension about 200 m away. We connect the extension to the main office using a Radio FWA link. PCs in the extension are connected to the same switch as the radio which just serves as a bridge. The PCs have ip addresses in the same subnet as the main office. The problem is we can ping the Radio and other PCs in the office extension. But we can't ping any PCs in the main office until we right click the NIC and click Repair. Also after a while, they begin to time out again and we have to click Repair before they start pinging PCs in the main office again. I'll appreciate your help. Thanks a million.

What the repair option does is more or less disable and then enable the network connection to refresh the systems settings. This article explains what exactly it does: http://www2.lut.fi/atk/palvelut/PCTUKI/Windows/XP/Repair_NetWork_Conn.html ? Attempts to renew the DHCP lease, if the connection obtains its IP address through DHCP, using a broadcast message. ? Flushes the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) cache using the command arp -d * ? Flushes the NetBIOS cache using the command nbtstat -R ? Flushes the DNS cache using the command ipconfig /flushdns ? Reregisters the NetBIOS name and IP address with WINS using the command nbtstat -RR ? Reregisters the computer name and IP address with DNS using the command ipconfig /registerdns So if this is what is being done, lets try to trouble shoot each symptom and see what resolves it. My first inclination would be to check your DHCP scope on your server, and see if your scope is running out of space. Also check the lease length and see if it is set to a small amoutn of time. Your PCs could be losing their IP addresses and thus need to get new ones all the time. Are you pinging by IP or name. I would do most of the ping tests by IP as that would remove any of the name resolution issues you may be encountering. Is the wireless brindge doing any type of mac-address or arp filtering? Also, can machines in the extension always ping each other constantly? This would help narrow down the problem to see if it is an IP problem on the hosts or a possible network equipment issue.

How come after deleting trial of office 2013 I cannot access my old 2010 word starter programme

that is happening because you have both installed at the same time 2010 and 2013, since 2013 is newer it takes over the file extension, upon removal of 2013 windows will no longer know how to open the files even so you still have 2010 starter installed, just go to control panel - uninstall a program - and look for office 2010 starter in the list of programs that will show up, click on it and there will be a option to remove or reinstall/repair. click on it, office will give you the option to uninstall or repair office, choose repair and wait when the installer is done you should be able to open your documents again.

This thing doesn't work. When moving the remote unit downstairs, it doesn't connect to the network.

The powerline modems are affected by the other connected equipment in your house and the wiring phases.

For BOTH modems try the following first:

-Connect the modems directly to the wall socket, don't use an extension lead.

-If you have a surge protecting extension block plugged in in the next/adjacent socket, try plugging it in on a different mains socket.

If this does not work, you may want to think again about routing an Ethernet cable between floors.
Higher performance and lower cost.

Worked well, then blew the fuse.

What you should do next is stop using an extension lead. As you've already discovered, there's a risk of the connection getting wet, which is potentially very dangerous, but this is probably not the main problem. Most extension leads (the normal domestic type) are simply not capable of carrying the current needed to run your pressure washer.
Rather than using an electrical extension, use an extension high-pressure hose and work further away from the machine (which also makes it easier to keep the machine dry).
If this doesn't sort the problem, please post here again and we'll try something else.  Good luck!
