ARP answer from wrong client with wrong MAC address

Q: ARP answer from wrong client with wrong MAC address

Hi everybody,
since friday we have a strange problem with some clients and ARP answers. We notice that our switch recognize wrong MAC addresses on some ports.
We use wireshark to see what happens and we get the following:
5 clients: (XX:XX:XX:F7:52:75) (XX:XX:XX:38:d1:a8) (XX:XX:XX:c2:b0:b9) (XX:XX:XX:88:c7:4f) (XX:XX:XX:7b:67:4d)
Wireshark runs on client 1 (, promiscuous mod off)
Client 5 ( send a broadcast arp question (who has - tell and client 1 ( is sending ARP replies with src = XX:XX:XX: 38:d1:a8. (XX:XX:XX:38:d1:a8) is offline (network cable removed) and has no entry of (XX:XX:XX:38:d1:a8) in his arp cache.
The clients run Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
Why we get these phenomenon and how can we solve it? Is there maybe a problem with some updates of the last patchday?

Thanks for the reply and kind regards

1) posting in one thread is universally considered polite

2) insulting ppl who are trying to help is rude, whether or not they answer the question correctly or not

3) you already appear to know the answer, and are probably just testing ppl for some arcane reason

I've got one xp client on a server 2003 domain that gets an incorrect time. It is one hour behind. If you set it forward a short time later it resets to one hour behind. There is only one server and it is not configured to use an external time source. On the client the net time command returns the following:

Current time at \\servername is 8:57am

Local time at \\servername is 9:57am (correct)
The "local" time above is the correct time. Not sure I know what the difference is between local and current. The curious thing is that the client with this issue is the only one on the domain with this problem. Everyone else is reporting the correct time. Running net time on a client that has the right time returns this:

Current time at \\servername is 9:57am (correct)
I'm a little perplexed. Where is this one odd client getting the different time?

I have checked the time zone and daylight savings box and the settings on both the server and the client with the wrong time are correct.

A:xp client wrong time

It would appear that the solution would be to apply the daylight savings time patch. Update for Windows XP (KB931836).

I think I saw this same problem but with a different client. When I say different I don't mean different resident client. What I want to do is use G-Mail as a client for "sendto:" It was recommended I download and install G-Mail Notifier and choose G-Mail as the default client. I think I did that but apparently it does not work. I have been using Thunderbird but when I had problems with my ISP account I decided to go to G-Mail and now when I ask for a document to be "sendto" I get a Thunderbird (write) compose window. How can I change that to a G-Mail compose window? G-Mail does not open a compose even if I have G-Mail already running. I understand G-Mail is not a client resident on my machine, that it is only through Google that I can use G-Mail, so how do I get my WinXP Pro to call G-Mail to sendto?

HI all,

First post, i've been searching but wording this in a way similar to someone else has beaten me thus far.....

I have a windows7 client that was initially called wrt2012 on our domain, i renamed the machine to wr5 when i was happy it was working ok (it was my guniea pig machine !) but now when i try to establish an ODBC connection to an SQL server i get the following error:

Connection failed:[HY000][MSQL][ODBC 3.51 DRIVER] Host 'WRT2012.<domain name removed.com>' is blocked because of many connection errors; unblockwith 'mysqladmin flush hosts'

Can someone explain where this is broadcasting the machine name WRT2012, i.e the old client name from so i can delete it ?

*not sure if this post should be in networking or whatever so plumped for general ??

Recently expanded a shared partition on a win 10 computer. Win 7 client does not recognize new size. Deleted and recreated partition and reset share
settings and rebooted both computers. Not only does the client not recognize the size, but it shows files that are not on the partition. If I add a file from the client, they do not show on the host and if I add a file to the host they do not show on the client.
For a file added from the network, a search for the file comes up non-existent on all partitions of both computers but shows up as file on the host computer when looked at from the client. The client computer sees all the other partitions on the host correctly.
Host is Win 10 pro, client is win 7 pro. A third win 10 computer on the network shows the files on the host computer correctly.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me why my IP Address is Class A -, but my Subnet Mask is Class C - ? I tried to release this IP Address through Command Line but when I renew I get the exact same one. I've had the same service provider for 5 years now and haven't noticed until now, I have DSL through Verizon. I have a Modem and Router but both are set for Dynamic IP Addressing and they both look to have 192 IP Addresses, so I have no idea where my computer is getting that number. Could this also have something to do with the reason why my computer seems slow at times ? I should have speeds near 700 KB/Sec but I barely reach 100, that's not only what I'm paying for but when I do speed tests online they give me roughly the same number. I just bought a new computer with Windows 7 so I know it's not the hardware.

Hello, I recently claimed the warranty on my HP monitor and HP sent out the replacement, but it wasn't delivered to the address I told HP to send it to. Instead, it was sent to someone's house and he or she wasn't home, so it was taken to a local UPS facility. He or she picked it up a while later. I have no idea who the person who picked up my monitor is, and I don?t know where the monitor currently is. I called UPS and they said that HP sent me the wrong tracking info, and that I should contact HP. Please help!

Love this forum, has helped me tremendously, I always fix the laptops of the guys at the office....until now....

My sons Lenovo laptop had a nasty virus so I removed it using the standard methods I have used before. I used Rkill to stop the processes, MB to remove and it looked like the virus was gone. I also tried combofix but it said something about being limited.

The wireless network connection looks great...only thing is, there is NO IP. I go to the command prompt to do the ipconfig, and I get the error, Windows IP Configuration
An internal error occurred: The request is not supported.
Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help.

I spent an entire night (and morning) trying different solutions for repairing TCP problems thru google results, but nothing worked. I now think there is a corrupted registry key because the IPSEC key is not where it is supposed to be. There is a key called .ipsec, but it has very little in it. I do not know how to even attempt to fix it manually without some good assistance.

System restores do NOT work. Even in safe mode. I may be able to restore the system files from a Jan 2010 backup he did (Through the Lenovo recovery app) but it tells me I will have to reinstall apps which will be a nightmare.

Hi, I have the strangest problem with my emails. I am using windows XP and Outlook Express 6. I have two accounts on Outlook Express, one is a RoadRunner account and the other is Hotmail. About an hour ago I noticed that my RoadRunner in box had jumped from approx 25 unread messages to 522. My Hotmail in box has 420 unread messages which is about usual. I looked at the messages on RR and found that there were 3 sets of messages (that probably amount to 500 or so) that are addressed to the Hotmail account, but are in the RR inbox. These same messages are also still in the Hotmail in box. I sent a couple of test emails to the Hotmail address and they went to both the RR and Hotmail in boxes. Test emails sent to RR went only to that account.

I have made the following changes recently:

1. Aug. 1 - Changed my email server from Adelphia.net to RoadRunner.com. I have not noticed any problems and have been receiving email fine.

2. Aug 20 - Tried to do a back up using the back up feature that is included in Norton360, but discovered it does not back up programs.

2. Aug. 21 - Subscribed to Mozy and did a complete back up of files and programs, but not systems.

3. Aug 23 - Changed my Hotmail from http to Pop3 in OE because I received an email from Windows Live that I had to do this to keep receiving Hotmail in OE.

I'm not sure exactly when the emails moved to RR, I know it was not before Aug. 20.

I'm sorry this is so long; I wanted to give as complete a description of ... Read more

A:Emails going to wrong address


Switching your Hotmail to POP3 causes your Hotmail messages to be placed in your OE Inbox. This is by design.

You see two copies of a single Hotmail message because you probably still have the Hotmail HTTP account listed in OE. In OE, go to Tools > Accounts. If you see a Hotmail account listed there as HTTP, you can remove it.

If you want your Hotmail messages to go to a folder other than your OE Inbox, then you can create a rule moving any messages received from your Hotmail address to a different folder.

I have OE 6

I have one email address (I use a lot) that always comes up as cm (after yahoo.com) instead of "com" like it should.

I noticed this because email would come back when sent. I thought I had mistyped it, but it was in the address book correctly.

I've tried to change this, deleted it and put it in again, edited it, putting in the correct word (com) and saving it as default. Even tried putting it in with a new nickname for the person.

When I start putting the email address in, and it auto fills in, it still puts "cm" instead of "com" on the end of it.

I have to type it all in by hand, or let it auto fill and go over it, putting the "o" in com.

When I look in the address book it says "com" like it's supposed to, and says it's the person's default email (in my address book)

How can I fix it so it comes up correctly?

I seem to have the strangest problems....

My first post in this forum, but I've been around the block a few times building my own machines (and for others), but a month ago i ended up springing for a dell xps 8300 desktop b.c i got a great deal on a scratch and dent system with an i7-2600 processor, 1.5tb drive, and an ATI 5770 1gb graphics card.
So long story short I've added one component and upgraded one existing component. The first was adding an SSD drive to the mix, which worked out wonderfully (i boot from power off to desktop in 13 seconds). Very pleased.
The second seemed to be just as successful...I replaced the stock PSU (460watts) with an Antec 650watt continuous power PSU (certified and all). Reconnected all the cables, crossed my fingers, turned on the power supply...got the green light on the motherboard so turned on the computer and all was fantastic!!!
The catch is..........I didn't notice until hours later i'd not heard a sound from the computer in quite some time. Tested by playing a few songs and nothing.

Here's where i got lost. In the "playback devices" (right clicking on the audio icon in the task manager tray) it shows the music playing (as in the levels are bouncing up and down).

Hi guys.

Here is an interesting one for you. For a few days now I noticed that 1 computer on this network has been issued the wrong IP address. It is a Windows XP Pro SP3 PC using a internal Realtek LAN adapter.

Using DHCP issued from a 2wire ADSL router
Default DHCP configuration
IP Address Range ->
Default Gateway

However this computer has been issued with
IP Address
Default Gateway
DHCP Server
DNS Server

Internet still works but network drive access doesn't.

All computers are plugged into a NetGear 16 port network switch with 1 cable going to the 2Wire ADSL router.

Everyone else on the network is correct and so was this PC up until last Thursday. The system was being used in the morning. Had a blackout and ever since this problem has occured.

Trying a few things gives these results.
Restarting the router and network switch - Made no change
Restarting the PC - Made no change
Disable Windows Firewall - Made no change
Disable AVG AntiVirus - Made no change
Disconnected LAN cable - Address issued was the default 169 auto config address
Reconnected cable - Went back to
Repaired Connection - Made no change

You need to speak to your ISP again. It is only them that can sort this out. If you provide proof they can't really argue with you.

I am using a Dell XPS 410 with Vista Home Premium (purchased in Feb) and running Office 2007. I am a novice depending on security from my Linksys router and NIS 2007 and maybe a little some common sense. I haven't had a security problem in years so the learning curve of all the current issues has been a challenge for me.
Of late there have been emails that I cannot explain. For example, one of the first took the first name and first letter of the last name of someone in my address book then used the e-address I had for my friend. It had to come from my address book because I had his address wrong and the email said this message is from "xxxx x" then gave the e-address from me.
This email (sent in March) said it was sent "via Flixster by {name of friend with email from my address book}" to a variation of my primary e-address. The subject line said, "xxxx x has sent you a private message" and it is marked as high importance. The body of the text starts with the Flixster web and ds /serviet/invite/650915076azaA650923531Btlkhln3CM signed "xxx x". And finally it shows the email sent from "xxx x" with the wrong e-address from my address book. This is a close friend, but I had seen him in person and talked by phone and had not sent email in months.
Circa May 14 and this morning, I received email sent using my personal primary e-address and my photo. I have very few photos in Outlook 2007 and that is one of them. The one that arrived ... Read more

A:Flixter, Wrong E-address And My Own Photo

Even though no specialist has yet to reply or maybe because of it, I thought I needed to update this thread with what I learned today.

I've been searching to see if I failed to delete the original email on one of my three computers and found one today in Microsoft Mail on my Vista pc.

Now I don't know what to do. If I post the headers in a forum, then I give up a lot of personal information. I tried to email it to a specialist, but my ISP blocked it saying that it contiained potential spam. If it caught it now, then how did it miss it coming in? And does leaving this original email in Microsoft Mail leave my computer at risk?

Is it safe to save these headers to a Word file and go from there or does that keep the risk of infection alive?

Anyway, I don't know how to read headers, but there is a line that came from my Barracuda "spam firewall" report that says:
"0.28 MAIL_TO_SPAM_ADDR URI: Includes a link to a likely spammer email". It also shows the reply email as "[email protected]".

If I am reading the headers correctly, the email was sent by Flixster and only used my friend's e-address as a cover. I don't know where they got my address although it could have been an email sent this friend over a year ago.

Greetings,I am assisting a friend who has a computer running Windows Home Edition, XP SP3.The latest version of AVG Free Antivirus is running with the lastest updates. I have scanned the computer and it comes up clean. Also, I have downloaded, installed and updated the latest Malwarebytes. At this point, both AVG and Malwarebytes report no infections. When I first started, however, AVG 9 was running and both Malwarebytes and AVG reported infections. After running both (ran Malwarebytes in safe mode several times), the system reports itself as being clean, however when I attempt to navigate IE 7 (I've also tried Chrome) to www.google.com, I get a time out. If I ping www.google.com from a command prompt, it pings fine, however the address is in the UK ( and doesn't match the results I get from other computers on the network.NSLookup reports my DNS Server as (my router) and www.google.com's address as have checked internet settings to verify that no proxies are in use.

I have an address in OE6 (in the address book) when I start to put it in or the name, to send something, it pops in automatically like they all do.

But, this one goes in Yahoo.cm

I didn't notice this, and it came back as failed delivery.

It's correct in the address book. I took it out and put it back in but it still does this.

When I start to write the name or email address it finishs it and leaves out the O in COM. If it just puts the person's name in (and I don't see the actually email address- in order to correct it) it comes back to me as wrong.

This is the only one I've seen this with.

Any ideas?

I have a Brother HL-4570CDW Printer that has been working fine until a couple of days ago. A Laptop was added to the network but from a different wireless address. Would that confuse the printer? As of now the printer is reading from the wrong IP address. Any suggestions or a good way to change IP address back to the proper within the printer?

Thanks for your help - I've tried the usual settings and searched everywhere but can't find an answer to this question. Maybe I need to go into the registry?

Windows Home Premium, SP1.

I use Thunderbird as my default email client. Somehow, the default setting in Vista got changed - now when I right-click on a file and choose Send to-->Email recipient, I get an Outlook 2003 compose window, instead of a Thunderbird compose window. This drives me crazy. The computer behaves correctly (goes to Thunderbird) when I click on a "mailto:" hyperlink, however.

I've tried:
1. changing the settings in the Control Panel-->Default Programs window. There are 3 windows I've tried here with no luck.
a. "Set your default programs": I've checked to ensure that Thunderbird has all its defaults and Windows Mail and Outlook 2003 have none. I've also gone into each of these programs to make sure they're not stealing their defaults back.
b. I've gone into "Set Program Access and Defaults". In the Microsoft Windows section, Windows Mail is indicated as the default client, however there is no option to change it. In the Non-Microsoft section, the options set are "Use my current email program" and "Remove Access: Windows Mail". In this window, I am able to change the broswer, media player and Java settings, but it's not letting me change the email settings.
c. In the Custom window, under the setting Choose my defa... Read more

Last night, My MS Paint GUI went screwy.

It looks like it is out of Aero mode or something, but Aero troubleshooter found no problem & everything else is fine. I was having an issue with a video game for PC (full screen) which normally fiddles with the Windows theme, but I honestly dont know.

I dont like the adjusted look, and fear this is one of those simple problems with a insanely complex solution.

Thanks in advance, back later

I orded a replacement part, and it was sent to an old address even after I had the support guy update it. The Fed Ex tracking number that I have said it was never deliverd. The order was made 09-11-2016, and my credit card was charged. Since then I've called twice and talked to two different people every since. The zip code is still not correct checking my long in info, and I corrected that last week. After calling twice, and talking with support I still don't have any message, email or anything stating that my problem is being worked on or looked into. I still have my CSO number and the tracking number for the product to prove it wasn't delievered. After calling twice the only thing they could do is update my addrress and "push the order". Though I haven't heard anything from it. I would like some help or a sign that it's going to be fixed.

I'm using Outlook 2003. I have 5 e-mail addresses that I use for various reasons. Address 1 is set as my default address. Address 2 is one I created specifically for posting to public forums so that I could delete it when spam started rolling in. The other addresses don't really figure in this problem.

For some reason, even though Address 1 is my default mail address and is the one I want to use in most of my e-mail communications, both ones that I initiate as well as ones that I respond to, Outlook seems to almost invariably select Address 2 as the one to copy into the "from" field of e-mails that I send. How do I tell Outlook that the default return address should be Address 1?

I noticed an odd IP range in the "trusted list" in McAfee (the box was not checked, but the addresses were there). After I deleted the IP range and added the IP range to the not permitted list, I noticed that my computer was still trying to connect to an address in that range before connecting to my ISP (the range has also "reappeared" after I deleted it before). Today, after restarting the computer and unlocking the firewall, the Local Area connection attempted to connect to a different IP (not in the same range) before connecting to my regular ISP. As both addresses etc. are from the "Blackhole" server, not my ISP, I figured something was wrong. I've scanned with Panda, BitDefender, Windows Live, with 2 diff. rootkit programs, as well as with McAfee (online and reg.). I'm running XP.

Any Ideas? It doesn't seem like the connection stays once my ISP connects, but I would like to know how to stop the attempts or determine if someone is getting around my firewall or if I'm infected etc.

I would suggest doing the scan in safe mode after setting up the proper scanning selections.---Here is a brief summary for installation and set-up.

Hi there
I have an Amilo Pa1510 (Windows XP) and I can connect to the router but not surfing (browser doesnt load any website). I have tried the commands "ping" to my IP address and it works but ping to the default gateway IP address doesnt work either.
I am using the same wireless connection right now with my smartphone. I have downloaded an app that executes the ipconfig command in my Android. I have used the same gateway IP address in my laptop but it didnt work either. I have tried to set automatically the IP addresses in my laptop without success too. I have turned off and on both laptop and router and also checked in the system window that all the processes such as DHCP and DNS servers are automatic and enabled.
Does anyone know what I can try next? Anyone have any idea before I start eating my hair? Hahaha
Thank you for reading!

Windows 10

When a friend sends an email from his BT Webmail account, those in receipt of the email see his email address as ******@btinternet.com in the 'From" part of the header. However, when clicking on "Reply" (in my case Outlook 2010) the outgoing address is chanced to *******@outlook.com. Initially he used to open his BT Webmail account using the Microsoft Edge browser and so I changed his default browser to Google Chrome and accessed his BT Webmail account from Chrome to see if that made any difference - but it did not.

His computer has been scanned (and my computer has too) with Avast! and Malwarebytes and no malware has been found. So, I am at a loss to understand why this is happening. Can anyone out there help?
