Problems with network card
Posted on 2003-02-26
I dug-out my server from the spare room after a year, only to find it won't work on my network any more.
If I plug in a patch cable between the server and my hub, the server behaves really wierd: it hangs for a second, works for a second hangs for a second, etc. Plus, the led on the network card flahes instead of staying on.
If I connect my server to a Win98 PC using a crossover cable, the led comes on ok but I can't see the other PC on the network.
I can ping the server from the server (192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0) but I can't ping the Win98 PC (192.168.0.2 255.255.255.0).
The same is true from the Win98 PCs perspective.
I've reinstalled the drivers, dropped network services and re-installed, etc.
What is wrong with this server?
