Hi,

We have workgroup network of 7 computers names MSHOME.
All computers are using Windows XP operating system.
Sofar everything was ok but today 1 computer is not showing in workgroup computer list and can not access too.

Let's name the computer with problem "Test PC".
The Test PC Doesn't have any Firewall.
The Test PC connection is using the following items:

1.Client for Microsoft Networks
2. File & Printer Sharing For Microsoft Networks
3. QOS Packet Scheduler
4. Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

I have also tried to reset winsock and TCP/IP stack but it is not working.
Here is the output of ipconfig/all command in test PC:

Sufijo DNS principal . . . . . . :
Tipo de nodo. . . . . . . . . . . : híbrido

Please help me to fix this problem.

Have you checked the physical connections (cables, routers, hubs, etc.)?

Well it's physically connected to network
and sometimes pinging to server too.

Are all of your PC's using this IP scheme of 169.254? Don't you have something supplying DHCP to your network? Also if the others have a different IP have you checked the IP of the PC and the server at the time it can connect to the server?

If your not using 169.254 and the PC is this usually means you have either some kind of cable problem/a port problem/or a TCP/IP problem as this is what windows "runs home to" when it can't get proper DHCP from something.

Hi,

All other PC are using ip address 10.10.10.* series.
I have tried to configured TCP/IP of Test PC manually instead of automatic but that also not worked.
If i plug same net work cable to another PC it works fine so no cable or hub problem.
When I configured TCP/IP of test PC manually and ping to main computer at that time pings in 1 attempt and rest of the 2 attempts fails. while same time another computers are working fine and getting net access.

So what will be the problem and how to fix it?

Regards,
Little Boy

Sometimes it gets an IP config, sometimes not. Some pings work, some don't. Some pings get partial success. Sure sounds to me like cable, port or connection problem.

Try reseating the adapter card. Make sure the port and cable connector are clean and secure. Try a different cable.

Yeah this is sounding very hardware based.... Don't assume a cord is good unless you use a bonafide cord tester. It can be as simple as it being laid 1 way with 1 computer and a different way causing a short on the other computer....

Well If you remove test PC and use another PC with same cable, same hub it's working absolutely fine.
I think it's problem with that PC.
