Alright, so a friend of mine is having trouble connecting his computer to my network.

I recently reformatted the machine and after installing up to date network drivers fresh off the Intel website I cannot connect.

Actually, no. I CAN connect, but only halfway to the router. I am given a IP address, but I can't fully connect.

Here is my Net Diagnostic:


Network is onboard, motherboard is an Intel D955XBK... could it be my router or Modem? I can't figure it out. I'm pretty sure it is a software level problem, that's why I posted it here. Currently I am running SP2 on it, I will update it to SP3 after this post. Any help is appreciated.:grin:

Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
