Network Connection Issues XP Pro
Posted on 2010-09-01
Previously stable Dell 380 Workstation that was taken off the network is now being drafted back into service.
Logging into the local machine presents no speed or functional issues. Can access internet via both wired and wireless methods.
Logging onto the network causes the machine to practically grind to a halt. Mouse almost freezes, cannot launch any programs. PC does not totally freeze, but it almost does. After two hours of sitting, same issue exists.
Linksys wireless card installed, with latest driver. Latest driver for wired network card. Firewall settings on this machine are confirmed to match other machines having no issues on network.
Mcafee AV had been previously installed, and I removed it before issues were detected. Removed via add/remove programs wizard. Further "cleaning" of Mcafee components done after network connection issues noted via MCPR.exe.
Orange LED lit solid on ethernet port, both when logged in locally and when trying to log onto network. No errors noted under Device Manager.
Ipconfig /release and /renew done with no change.
XP Pro on workstation. Server2003 operating system on server. Rest of network is troublefree.
