View Full Version : network problem

28-07-2006, 01:09 PM
I have a small network using XP based PCs and a linux server. All is fine except one PC grinds to a halt when I try and open "My Computer" or the Network.
I am using static IP addresses and this PC can access the network without any other problems.
What's going on?

Do you get the 'flash light', looking for resources?, If so, could be the network handlers priorty.

Check properties of my network>advance settings, and the order of the providers......

I do get the flashlight searching. I have checked the advanced settings and they look ok, and are the same as on the other PCs which work fine.

Log looks fine to me.

But these can be ticked

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NeroFilterCheck] C:\WINDOWS\system32\NeroCheck.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RemoteControl] "C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\PDVDServ.exe"

I would install a firewall as well.

Whats this for?? a router??

Try updated drivers for the current NIC or can you try a different network card in the pc, they can be bought for around $10. Could be a fault with the existing card. As you will probably be running Netbios on tcp/ip by default, that would explain why some other functions appear to work ok.

The PC is just a couple of months old and is on a network with a linux server and a hardware firewall/gateway ( Could there be other network setting that I should check. I'll try an updated driver for the network card.
