Unable to access DHCP on through frame relay
Posted on 2006-04-05
Very strange issue.
Set up a new computer in the main office where DC is located. Added PC to the LAN, pushed Norton's Antivirus down from server, installed Acrobat reader from server, all is hunky dorey.
Disconnected PC, traveled to new office, set up PC and now PC will not obtain an IP from the DHCP server. Receives an IP of 192.168... The normal IP's should be 10.0.40... All of the other PC's (7) work fine and receive a 10.0.40 address.
Checked cables- works fine with a laptop. Swapped PC with a known working PC same results.
Ran a repair on connection- same.
Ran IPCONFIG /release, /renew- same
Deleted card in Comp. manager and reinstalled it- same.
Removed card from slot and reinstalled- same.
Disjoined PC from the domain fine then attempted to rejoin PC to domain- DC could not be contacted.
Attempted to view ARP Table- no entries found.
Took PC back to main campus to TS and PC sees the DC fine. I readded it to the domain. Works fine.
The two offices are connected by a T1 through a frame relay.
There is no difference between the type of LAN card used between this one and all the rest in that office.
Any recommendations on what could be the problem with this PC not connecting to the network?
