Can't join domain Windows XP
Posted on 2009-04-27
I'v probably added 100 XP computers to our domain but I can't add this one. It has the Network ID greyed out on the system properties page and if I go to change from the workgroup WORKGROUP to our domain the Member of is grayed out and I can't type in there. I can ping other computers on our network. I also can't get on the internet using the setting I use for all the other computers on our network. The Windows Network Client is on the list and the IP address is statiic and it is getting an IP address from DHCP. I have the gateway IP address correct. I tried putting our server IP in the WINS setting, no help. What do I check next?
The computer was being used in a wireless conneciton but on our system I have a ethernet cable connected. When I look at the at the network connection there's three, one wireless (not connected) and two others but there's only one cable connected. Does this have anything to do with it?
