I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am running windows xp on a dell inspiron 4150 with a built in wireless card. My wireless was working fine until windows prompted me to reboot due to windows update. It stopped working after that. It is telling me that no ip address can be found and when I ipconfiged it with renew and all it still could not find it. It gave me an error message that says cannot connect to DHCP server.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you,
 

A:Network could not connect to DHCP server

Nothing really comes to mind, but if you're using Window's Wireless Zero Configuration maybe you need to reconfigure your wireless connection; especially if your network is protected with encryption.

I use the utilities from my wireless cards' manufacturers to connect to my WPA protectecd network and had no trouble today after the same reboot (two notebooks). Well, same reboot if you're talking about the critical update released yesterday.

I come to you again seeking help. We have a problem with our logon and startup to our Windows 7 Enterprise system. We have more than 3000 Windows Desktops situated in roughly 20+ buildings around
campus. Almost every computer on campus has the problem that I will be describing. I have spent over two months peering over etl files from Windows Performance Analyzer (A great product) and hundreds of thousands of event logs. I come to you today humbled
that I could not figure this out. The problem as simply put our logon times are extremely long. An average first time logon is roughly 2-10 minutes depending on the software installed. All computers are Windows 7, the oldest computers being 5 years old. Startup
times on various computers range from good (1-2 minutes) to very bad (5-60). Our second time logons range from 30 seconds to 4 minutes. We have a gigabit connection between each computer on the network. We have 5 domain controllers which also double as our
DNS servers.

PCs are Win 7 Ultimate, All are joined to the Domain
Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP Server (on same instance) is Server 2012 standard
The network topology is like this: Router as Internet Gateway>Switch>Wired to Server and PC's, SIP phones, and Wireless Access Point all on same subnet. DNS and DHCP have been offloaded to Server Roles and switched off on the router.
All of the PCs have network cards that have joined the domain network at least some of the time since I set them up.
Some of them have always picked up the domain network and continue to this day.
Some of them intermittently pick up the domain network and other times join whatever other unmanaged network is available.
Some of them have stopped picking up the domain network altogether and will, no matter how many times their NICs are restarted, always join a non-domain (unmanaged) network.
When the NICs are not joining the domain, they are unable to ping hostnames of any devices on the network but nslookup of the hostnames usually works. The DC, DNS, DHCP server's IP can be pinged without issue, ipv4 or ipv6.
I am recording DNS Client Errors (ID 1014) on all of the PCs during the intervals when their NICs are identifying which network to join.

Hello everyone, hopefully someone here has some Linux experience and can help with my networking problems. I have a fileserver running Linux on my home network. It uses openssh for ssh and samba for local file sharing. I just installed Vista Ultimate x64 on a separate computer and cannot connect to it. I can connect to the fileserver through samba from another computer on the same network running XP as well as from OS X. I can connect to the computer with XP from Vista, but can't discover the Linux computer. I can ssh from the computer running OS X to the Linux computer but PuTTY just time-outs when trying to connect from Vista. I can ping every other computer on my network that is running a form on windows, but I cannot even ping the Linux box. I disabled the windows firewall temporarily to remove it as a cause. Since I cannot even ping the Linux computer, I think that is the main issue and ssh and samba should probably work once that is resolved. Oh yeah, I also changed the Network security policy to "LM and NTLM – use NTLMV2 session security if negotiated". I am using Samba >3.0 which has support for ntlmv2, but I changed it anyway.
All of the computers are wired, except for the one running OS X. If I forgot any other detail, let me know.

Hi southernlady,

First, you should check out the man pages for dhcp, and dhclient.

Then try the following:
Find the option under the "System Settings" menu -> "network"
or
Run the gui client, system-config-network and then edit the network device to change from manual IP settings to dhcp.

I assume a reboot is required after the change.

Hope this helps,

sounds like you have a duplicate IP address on one the the boxes

get a connection and make sure you can browse the Internet using google
and search for anything you like (we'll use this as a test)

Connect a device and make the browser search again (even on the same words).
If you get disconnected, then the last device connected has the conflict.

Go to that device and REMOVE any static IP address and make sure you have

We've recently acquired a Laptop with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

I recently upgraded my wireless router from D-Link DIR-615 to D-Link DIR-685. Before the changeover, all of my devices were connecting to the router, although I had several problems with dropped connections, etc. The devices in use were:
- Desktop computer
- Laptop computer
- All-in-one touchscreen computer
- Netbook
- iPhone (original model)
- HP TouchPad tablet
- Sony Blu-Ray player
- Two internet radios (Aluratek and Livio)
- Wii

ALL of these devices were connected wirelessly to the network. When I set up the new router, I used a different network name/SSID, but kept the same security key/password. All of the router settings were kept the same (e.g., WPA-2, etc.). After the new router was up and running, every single one of the devices listed above connected (after an initial setup with the new network name, of course) EXCEPT the All-in-one/touchscreen computer. I've tried over and over, and it refuses to accept the security key/password. (The desktop, laptop, and touchscreen are all running Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.)

I have used Windows 2000 SBS and i dont really like it. i would like to setup up a linux os as a server or domain as some may call it but i dont want it to do stuff for other windows servers i guess what im trying to say is i want to use something else instead of active directory. Is there a linux disto that i can download to setup as a fileserver ,domain server but are in GUI form. I would also like to know what is the best distro for desktops.


Thanks for the help

A:Linux as a domain

There's a program called Samba that runs on most unix operating systems and can act as a WIndows NT domain controller. Not sure about any (free) pre-packaged Linux DC versions or other point-and-click solutions..

We have had many threads about what is the "best" linux distro.

If you are thinking about completely ditching Windows both server and client side, then you are probably better off buying some commercial Linux solution from Novell or RedHat. And what would be the point in running a Windows domain using Linux servers and Linux clients?

ok, I am hoping there is a way to do this:

I currently have a win2k AD Domain set up. I have an Exchange server running and a site for the domain done in IIS with ASP.

I am, however tired of MS and I have learned enough linux that I want to put in a linux web server running apache that I can run some apps off of using php and MySQL.

I have done php and MySQL, but what I have not done is to try to have both a IIS and Apache server running behind the same firewall. I am curious if anyone knows of a good way to accomplish this? I have a sonicwall SOHO3 50 user firewall with NAT.

Thanks

I'm running into a problem with connecting to network drives over a VPN. The common difference is whether or not the computer is part of the domain by default.

1) Computers connecting to VPN using local account on computer: Prompted for a domain login when attempting to use the network drives. Can get in.

2) Computers connecting to VPN using a domain account (but on another network): Unable to connect. Specific error changed based on below info.
A) Computer logged on and connected to an outside network. Never connected to domain network: Can't find folder error.
B) Connects to domain network at some point before connecting to an outside network and using VPN: Might be in use error, attached.

A:VPN Network Shared Drive Error Domain/Non-Domain Differences

Sounds more like the network the VPN connection puts you in has trouble making kerberos connections to domain controllers, but NTLM connections work fine (kerb might be blocked). The errors are likely bogus if you can get #1 to work - if the computer is connected to a domain it's going to want to use Kerb before NTLM, and if the machine still has (what it thinks is) a viable kerb ticket, it's going to try and validate that with a DC (to achieve auth), and if this fails, so does the connection.

This may not actually be the case, of course, but it sure has the symptoms of it.

I've got a†machine running Windows 7 logged on the network domain†but when I try to map a share to a machine on the network, but not registered on the domain I cannot connect (even though I have a local account on the networked machine).When attempting to connect Windows 7 prompts me for my connection credentials and it automatically fills in the domain name.† How can I connect to this network share using credentials that are local to that network share?

A:Logging in to Non-Domain Network Share from computer on Domain

When you say local credentials I assume you mean local on the "TestServer", not local on the Windows 7 box. Then you should be able to just type in TestServer\LocalAccount and the password (the domain you see should automatically switch to "TestServer")Also; have you tried mapping the drive using the IP address (i.e. \\xx.xx.xx.xx\TestShare)?

Can I access a network share on the domain with a non-domain computer? I would connect the computer directly to the corporate network. 
For what reasons could this be blocked (firewall? policy? settings on server-side?) and what configuration is needed to make sure it is possible to access a network share with a non-domain computer?
Thanks already for your help!

Hello All,

I wanted to ask you all a question,

I work at a school and funds are always tight, it would be nice to replace one of our domain controllers with a simple Linux box.

The idea is to keep the main server (Windows 2003, 2008 soon) as the GC, then have additional domain controllers as Linux boxes.

I have a box ready to go with Samba, not really sure what to do though.

Regards.

Alex.
 

A:Linux as a Secondary Domain Controller?

Hello again,

I've been trying to get it to work for a couple of days now, and I'm much closer.

The only thing I'm stuggling with is Kerberos authentication, if anyone has any active directory experience it would be appriciated!

Regards,

Alex.

I can't figure out why i can't get a connection using DHCP (obtain ip address automatically). The only way i get an internet connection is by assigning a static ip. i have another pc connected to the network also windows 7 and dhcp works fine. i'm confused, can anyone help?

A:Can't connect using DHCP

I would try this simple idea first and see what happens: click start, programs, accessories, then right click on command prompt and select run as administrator; once there; type ipconfig /release then wait till the adapter releases; then type ipconfig /renew and hopefully that will resolve the issue. If that does nothing for ya post back

I've become the unofficial network admin at my work place, we are having some network connection issues and I have no idea what's causing it. This problem only started occuring about 3 weeks ago, there haven't been any changes made to the configuration of the network. The network has 1 linux server, 7 computers, and 2 network printers. The router we are using is a D-link DI-604, there are 2 d-link switches connected to it, as well as a d-link DWL-900AP+ wireless access point. Sometimes when we arrive in the morning and turn on the computers, some of the computers cannot acquire a network address. Loading the router configuration page shows the dhcp server leasing IP's to an unknown device, screen shot is attached.
The mac addresses of all known devices connected to the network (computers, printers, server) begin with 00, i don't know what the device with mac address beginning with 52 is but the dhcp server is leasing all the unused ip's to that device.
Anybody have any ideas?

Greetings,
I have 2 XP machines on a home network. One has a Static IP and the other get itís from the router DHCP.
My Question is how can I share files and songs on the network. I am having trouble having the 2 see each other. It seemed pretty much cut and dry.
Did I miss anything?

Thanks
ROB
 

A:Static and DHCP try to connect

Did you enable NETBIOS over TCP/IP on the one with the static IP address? Can you PING each machine from the other by IP address and by name?

For each computer, let's see this.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

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

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.

I just got Cox cable and it hasn't been working right.

I have a netgear WG602 wireless access point. I can connect to it but it has limited or no connectivity. Repairing the connection doesn't work and doesn't give me an IP.

I connected the ethernet cable directly to my laptop and it didn't work at all. I called them and it worked by directly connecting, but the wireless still didn't work.

Then I messed with wireless settings to try to connect, and I finally got online but my ip is 70.x.x.x, the apparent IP for all Cox subscribers.

But I got that 70.x.x.x through my router instead of a 192.x.x.x so I have no idea why it's doing that. It's really weird and I still can't get a dynamic IP.

Thanks for the help.

The day before yesterday I started having this problem. I do have a very inconsistent internet connection (ISP is absolutely the worst ever, but the only one I can get where I live). However, I've had this computer with the same connection and the same LAN
configuration for about 2 years and never had a problem like this before.
When it first happened I had been using the computer a few hours before, and then the problem started when I tried to turn it on again later. Windows would start until the login sound played, the desktop and its icons were displayed, but the system tray
icons wouldn't finish loading, and the wireless connection icon would show as searching for network (http://k30.kn3.net/8/8/2/3/D/0/023.jpg). Everything else was frozen. I tried ctrl+shift+esc but I wasn't able to open anything, not even with win+R
to execute a command. So I had to force shutdown and start in safe mode. I disabled all wireless adapters and then restarted in normal mode and everything was ok. I rolled back my wireless driver and enabled it and it seemed to work. But then again I had the
same problem today.
Looking at the event viewer I see there is a recurring error named "Microsoft-Windows-DHCP Client Events/Admin" with opcode "IpAddressNotAssigned": "Your computer was not assigned an address from the network (by the DHCP Server)
for the Network Card." and it indicates a mac address. Error code is 0x79.
