Network Connection Problems
Posted on 2006-03-30
I'm having trouble with a PC on the network, I hope you can assist.
The PC logs on to the network, but invariably there are problems through the course of the day - it drops the connection, or drops the connection to printers, loses drive mappings etc.
I get to the PC, I can Ping the server and that kind of thing, all the network settings are correct (DNS server, gateway etc - these are all the same as all other users), but I can't access folders on the network through Windows Explorer. Usually a re-boot sorts it out.
This was OK the first few times, but the user is, understandably getting a bit frustrated with the PC continually dropping the connection to the network.
Can you suggest a few things I might check/run in order to get to the bottom of the problem?
Event viewer tells me there are errors with connecting to the domain controller...though no other users are having these issues or getting these errors.
Where to start looking in order to get to the bottom of the problem would be great, thanks.
