Cannot ping router from server.
Posted on 2009-12-16
Hello there, I have a problem that is driving me crazy.
I have a netgear router, which is connected to a switch - I have our server connected to the switch. The server cannot ping the router ""request timed out".
I have a work station connected directly to the server, this has a connection and can ping the router fine.
What is going on, this is doing my head in. I have the whole company waiting for an internet connection. We cannot get our mail, or nothing.
I have tired a crossover cable, straight through. Its like the server just will not recognised the routers IP.
The default gateway of the server is not set as the routers IP, but this should not matter.
