Connecting to ISP but can't ping
Posted on 2003-02-19
If someone's met this before then the answer's easy, otherwise...
I have a 2 node XP Pro peer-to-peer wthrough a DLink switch ith modem dial up ISP and a Laserjet 1200. No firewall. File sharing, printer sharing and ICS fine.
Everything worked fine for a while and then stopped.
I've been given some anecdotal evidence that the Laserjet's the guilty party and that I need to reinstall my NIC. Have uninstalled NIC device driver and rebooted, but no help, and can't remove the card cos it's onboard.
Am going to try to reset the IP stack and also update the Laserjet 1200 driver tomorrow, but would love to hear anybody's thoughts.
IPConfig tells me that everything's fine, even the ISP's client and server addresses, but ping just gives me an Error 65.
Am really embarassed with this one! Help please...
