((((I am also running this problem under the networking thread, but thought you might have some ideas also.))))

I have very little knowledge about Win 2k Server so please bare with me! I just built a Win 2k Server so I can create a domain w/in my home. I understand networking and already have a network setup using a workgroup, but am tired of the petty problems you have with sharing things in a workgroup. That is why I want a domain with user accounts.

My problem is that I can't get my server/domain controller to talk to my linksys router. I have static coded a network address and it still will not talk. I set up the router with a x.x.x.1 ip address, we will just say 10.0.0.1. I then set up the server with 10.0.0.100. I know everything is set up correctly with the router and the server as far as static coding an IP address. Now, why can't I ping the router?? All I get is a time out. I have replaced the nic and the lan cable both, so neither of those are bad. (Nic says it has a link and there is a green light.)

I have tried setting the server to DHCP to pull an IP from the router, but no go there either.

Also, I want this server to be everything for my network....d/c, dhcp, active directory, etc.

Any help will GREATLY be appreciated!

No....It is like it doesn't exist.

I won't make another post for a few days. I am running from Hurricane Katrina. Thank you for the continued support.

Networking Issues

How did you set the IP address on the router? Most of the time, you need to access that with a web interface, but if you cannot get to it, this would not be possible.

My first guess would be that the subnet mask or default gateway are incorrect. I would not be surprised that a ping request may not produce a response in some routers. ICMP may be turned off as a security precaution.

If you cannot ping the server from another workstation, I would check the IP addresses again.

IF you are using 10.0.0.0 / 24 (there is really no danger in displaying that information on the forum as it is a private address that no one can get to anyway) then the address should be:

10.0.0.100
255.255.255.0
10.0.0.1

and should be verifable by typing ipconfig at a command prompt. I would do this from both the server and workstation to verify they are on the same network.

Can the workstation access the router? (maybe that is how you programed it)
