Network Connectivity Problem
Posted on 2009-02-19
I have a small office network with 10 machines running windows xp connect to a Windows 2003 Server Domain Controller. I use a 24 port dell switch and a Cisco firewall. All at once all machines lost contact with the domain controller and gateway. I have taken the following actions:
1. Rebooted server, switch and firewall.
2. Reseated cat5 connections at punch down and all other connection points.
When pinging the ip address of a work station from another workstation you get one reply and three timed out responses. Then if you ping again are responses are timed out.
