Windows 2000 machine losing network connection every 20-30 minutes.
Posted on 2011-02-14
Here is what I've tried:
1. Reset the TCP/IP stack.
2. IPCONFIG /RELEASE & RENEW
3. Renaming the computer on the domain.
4. Checked both DHCP and DNS for dup. entries.
It still is reestablishing connection every 20-30 minutes.
Message 1:The server could not bind to the transport \Device\NetbiosSmb because another computer on the network has the same name. The server could not start.
Message 2:Your computer was unable to automatically configure the IP parameters for the Network Card with the network address ''. The following error occurred during configuration: The parameter is incorrect.
Message 3: Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address ''. The following error occured:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.
