If you have tried the static ip route and you have no luck here are
the basics. Pick up another machine that does log into the server
correctly, move it to the problem office, hook it up to the same cable
in you were using and see if it hooks up. If it does not then you know
you have a cabling problem. Green lights on hub or nic do not
neccessarily mean that you have a good connection. Some nics need
either the latest nic drivers or sometimes not. I heard one regular
contributor comment about Linksys having released in one year 3 nics
with the same model name but different chips that required different
drivers. Or you could move the laptop to a connection that you know is
good and see if it works. I have had to remove all instances of nics
in network control panel to get things working again. Reboot laptop
and it should find the nic and then load the correct drivers. Multiple
appeareances of nics when you have only one nic can cause problems.
