    hi there.
    hope someone there can help me.
    i work as tech support for University of Arkansas, and i have run into this problem big time.

    on a DHCP server :
    win 95/98/2000

    a client get the IP assigned, can ping several domains or IPs, cannot telnet or browse the internet.

    the computer can browse the network neighbourhood.

    i have tried reinstalling the NIC, setting static ip, installing IPX and NetBuie, (sp) .... all the tricks that normally work.

    and i still cannot fix it.

    the only way that i know to fix it is reload windows.

    i hope there is an easier way.

    plz, help

    Have you tried adjusting the speed and duplex setting of his nic.

    Some when set to auto detect won't cut it. I have had to set some as 10mps half or full duplex to get them to connect.
    Can;t remember if they saw the network but I think they did.

    Just a though

    Don't think you have hardware problems. Most likely configuration. DHCP passing out default gateway? In browser settings, Using a proxy server? Address correct for proxy? Plug in proxy IP address (see if DNS may be causing the problem). Have you tried a release, renew--maybe you are picking up a bad dns server.

    IPX/SPX, NetBeui??? Take them off. They will not solve anything--will only degrade performance.

    Hope some of these things to check will lead you to the problem.

    need more info

    what operating systems are having the problem? all of them or just windows2000?

    from the windows2000 computers open a command prompt and type ipconfig /all to see if you get an ip address, default gateway, and dns/wins servers.

    from the win95/98 machines use winipcfg to get the same info....

    when you use static ip addresses on a pc, does it work?
