localized network connectivity problems
Posted on 2012-09-08
I have come across 3 computers this week that all seem to have the same problem. The customers says they are not able to connect to their wifi and/or have no internet access.
On location I have verified the problem. Despite resetting routers, resetting the connection, manually setting IP address etc, I am not able to fix the problem. I can connect my laptop w/o a problem - so it seems machine specific and not network related. If I use ethernet to connect rather than wireless I have the same problem.
Other computers on the same network work fine.
The machines appear clear of viruses, as I have also scanned and cleaned them. They all are able to get DNS resolution.
Here is the odd part. When I take them to another location - my home or my office, they connect fine. When I return them they won't connect.
Has anyone heard of a problem like this?
