Limited or No Connection
Posted on 2007-10-19
I would appreciate any help that I can get. I normally do not get too involved with the network side of things, just desktop support. But I am working at a client that has a Windows 2000 server and maybe 15 to 20 clients the log into the domain. They also have a wireless Access Point that is used for about 10 tablet pcs to connect only to the internet. They do not log onto the domain and do not have access to the server, shares or printers. Recently, some of the tablets are not connecting and giving me a limited or no connection Icon. I powered up another wireless router just for test and all the units can connect to that with out a problem. I even replaced the ACCESS POINT and now a different batch of tablets do not connect now. My questions are as follows.
1. Do the number of client licenses have anything to do with computers that are not actually connecting to the domain? I dont think so, but wanted to double check.
2. I noticed an error about running out of IPs on the server screen a one point?
3. I have also seen an IP conflict error on the server at times?
Settings are as follows:
Main Cable Router with DHCP OFF = 192.168.1.2
Server IP = 192.168.1.3
Access Point = 192.168.1.5
If I run an IPCONFIG on a working tablet unit I get:
IP = 102.268.1.63
Subnet = 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway = 192.168.1.2
DNS = 192.168.1.3
Please, what am I missing here other than a good understanding of networking?
