one Computer does not get signal, on the network.

Our network beging with 192.168.2.x, and the internal server IP is 192.168.2.1. So obviously, all the computers on the network also get a 192.168.2.x IP address.

But there is one computer that is connected to the network port, but it just doesnt get signal.
It's IP Address is 169.254.221.34
and there is no default gateway (blank)
and the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0 instead of 255.255.255.0 as the other computers.

This computer, when tried to login as Administrator, says it cannot log into the domain. But if a user's login with the network's domain chosen, it logs in. That is when and how I checked the above IP addresses.

What is the best way to start to troubleshoot it?
Thanks

Hi,

Is the server DHCP enabled? If not, you will have to manually enter ip adress and other configurations for mentioned computer. Try manually entering, it should work fine.

How can I check if it DHCP enabled?

Do you mean, put the IP address in
Local Area Connection->Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)-properties->User the foll IP Addresses.
For example, what should I input:
As an example
192.168.2.200
255.255.0.0 (or 255.255.255.0)
192.168.2.1

What abt DNS? Should I put 192.168.2.200?
Would the above be right?

Few things to check.  The card already appears set for DHCP as it is receiving an auto IP address.  If you want to assign an IP just check another workstation's TCP/IP properties (Start->Run->CMD->ipconfig).  Copy down the subnet mask, default gateway and DNS server(s).  While at the CMD line you can ping other addresses from your 192.168.2.0/24 network to determine what addresses are available.  Plug all of that information in to the non-working computer and then ping your default gateway (192.168.2.1).  If it pings, then you know the network card, cables and switch port is good.  If it doesn't then I'd say you have a problem with the network card, cables or switch port.

why do you think it may allow administrator to log in? (saying domain is not available)

amichaell,
Is it possible to isolate the problem between
network card, cables or switch port.

Hi Anusha, try this, Start -->Run -->CMD--> (if the run is not in the start ment) go through Start -->programs --> Accessories --> Command prompt, in the command prompt type ipconfig /all (/all) will display the dns also, it will display is the DHCP is enabled (if it is yes, dhcp is enabled), other wise take all the details and go to tcp/ip properties and change only the ip address to a differet one (before giving that please confirm that the ip is not there in the network by usig the ping command: c:/>ping 192.168.2.233 if you are going to give 233 as the ip address for new computer. The subnet mask to be the same ie 255.255.255.0 if you are getting that when running ip the ipconfig /all command, or 25.255.0.0 if u are getting that when u enter the ipconfig /all command and all the other should be same other than the ip address. rgds, SG

Hi, please check one more thing, check one of the other pc which is working fine and give the command ipconfig /all on that machine and check the ipaddress, if it is the same series (ie 192.168.2.X) u are getting there will not be problem between computer and switch, rgds, SG

dbbgCommented:
Hi, this ip address u mentioned (169.254.221.34) is getting from the local switch, is any other machines connected to this switch, please check, then the problem will be the switch is not connected to core switch (main switch) or some loose connection in the switch, rgds, SG

ok. Thanks. This is what I found:
There are 2 LAN Connections
1)KTI KF-230 TX/2 10/100 Base TX Fast Ethernet
2)Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet

The computer was set to the KTI Connection.
It said the DHCP is enabled.

But I Checked another good computer that is working. It is using the Broadcom one.

So I tried to disable KTI and enable Broadcom. As soon as it got enabled, Immediately it said cable is unplugged.

I made sure the plug on the end is good by testing it on another computer.

When I put it back to KTI, it does say 'cable unplugged', but 'Connected with Limited or no connectivity'.

I do not understand the 2 LAN part. But I wish either one will receive the proper connection from the switch.

KTI say DHCP is enabled. Now, I did put in the IP address manually, and immediately after that, it say DHCP is not enabled.

Any thoughts, pl?
Thanks

Hi, first you check is this machine have 2 network card, one will be onboard and other one additionaly plugged in the motherboard, activate the broadcom and remove the cable from where now connected and connect to the other network port, then check and inform, rgds, change the ip to automatic itself is all working like that, rgds, SG

Let me understand this:

You are saying there will be 2 physical cards for the 2 LANs
1)KTI KF-230 TX/2 10/100 Base TX Fast Ethernet
2)Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet

I need to remove tke KTI one out of the motherboard, and also make sure the cable to connected to the Broadcom?
Thanks

Hi Anusha, dont remove the card from motherboard, first try connecting the cable to other one, that is broadcom and enable the same on the network properties, then try making that dhcp itself, SG

Hi SG
How you do make one LAN DHCP-enabled?

I connected to the cable to the broadcom LAN, and put the IP address manually. When I did ipconfig /all, it says DHCP is not enabled?

What may be the problem?

I typed 'Ipconfig /renew'

It says "The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation".

Is it look for any setting change?

an update..
I researched about this error message and tried the following 2 commands:

netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ip reset reset.log

and then I restarted the computer, and then gave the new IP Address.

But Still I get the error message

Hi,
 connected to the cable to the broadcom LAN, and put the IP address manually. When I did ipconfig /all, it says DHCP is not enabled?
Anusha, if you are giving IP Manually, it is not getting the IP from DHCP, that is why it is showing DHCP enabled as "NO", check the attached image and try it like that, then try the ipconfig /all command, if it is properly connected to network you will get similar ip details of other machines and it will work, rgds, SG

Thanks.

Putting it back to 'automatic' did not work, either.

I moved the computer and put it in another network port (#3) that we know it is working, and this 'troubled' computer worked fine. The original port where this computer was is #6. So it has been figured that the box itself is fine (the network card etc).

On the other end, on the switch, I connected the cable that goes to #6 to another pc, and it works , too.

So Can i deduct correctly that it is only the underground wiring from the switch end to the wall where the troubled computer was.

can any other test be done on the wall jack where the troubled computer sits.

Thanks.

Hi, the thing you can use is Cable tester, it will show any of the pair in the cable is broken or like that, thanks, SG

I do have access to a cable tester. I tried different sources, but no go.

Perhaps, a wireless receiver is the best choice, now?

Have you tried installing a separate network card?  Sometimes the built-in one malfunctions.
Either that, or you have / had some firewall software installed that is blocking communications or it has not been completely removed properly.

I brought the PC into another port in the network, and it connects & works fine.

I checked the source end of the Switch(before it is wired through the wall/underground) on a laptop, and it works fine. But I am not able to test it on the other end (on the port on the wall) next to the PC in interest.

Thanks

As dbbq has said - a cable tester would help or you can unscrew the face-plate and visually inspect the cables to see if they are terminated (pushed down) properly.
A faulty cable run can be anywhere along the length of the cable.
I had a customer with an S-Video cable that got chewed by mice under his floor.  He only discovered this when the cleaner managed to pull the cable up throught the floor whilst cleaning (enthusiastically!).

Ok the first thing you could try if you do not have resting equipment:

connect a working computer to the network port this faulty computer is connected to, does it work?
Connect the non working computer to the port that the working computer came from does that work?

If the working computer doesn't work now it is moved you can put it down to something between the cable going into the computer to the cable going into the switch.

How is your network configured? Do you have switch rooms around the building and they all link back to a central switch or do all your network points go back to the same place?
Try replacing any network cables you can between the computer and the switch, try a different switch port, if none of that works then it is mire than likely you have a faulty cable in the wall.

The working computer did not work in the faulty network port.
The Non-working computer works fine in the port where there is a working computer now.

I tried the computer at the switch, and it works fine.

THere is only one server/switch room, and all network ports relate back to the same place. YEs I had replaced several cables around, and it all seems like the cable through the wall is the fault.

as alanhardisty suggested, may be it is good old winter mouse to blame!!

Now we are considering perhaps enabling this faully port computer wirelessly.

Thanks for the questions. it helps to confirm the issue.

I was busy last weekend moving a customer from their old office to their new serviced office and ended up re-cabling half of the network sockets.
One had a faulty face-plate, discovered after running a fresh cable and then terminating the cable ends, but still no joy.  Changed the face-plate and everything worked.
It may not be mice after all ;-)  Just the usual Gremlins at work!

When you say 'face-plate'- i guess you mean the wire ends that end up at the wall (on the plate)? - you just replaced it with a new face plates or new wire ends? can you pl show me a picture of what you did, like a link that has it (from google images etc)

thanks Alan

Have a look here: http://www.lanshack.com/cat5e-tutorial.aspx

normally when you look at the modules which are clipped into the dace plate it will have a coloured guide as to which cable goes where.

If you are going to start looking at core cables then you need to get the following:

a network testing kit, now I use fluke because I need to provide a certificate but you can pick up a lights only tester for about $25-30
you will also need a punch down tool, look for a "krone type" tool these are much easier to use than impact punch down tools
I would also recommend a cyclopse cable stripper.

I would go for the more updated CAT6 these days though ;-)
The process is exactly the same the equipment just has to meet certain standards compared to CAT5 & CAT5e
