I have three systems connected to ADSL using TCP/IP with a Wingate
DHCP server assigning IP addresses. Two of the systems work fine (a
266MHz Pentium II and a 100 MHz Pentium) the third system, a Toshiba
3015CT notebook, receives an address 192.168.0.3 and 255.255.255.0
and is sometimes recognized in network neighbourhood. Also, when I go
into its client server in the control panel it shows the appropriate
servers. However, when I do a refresh in the WG client the server
addresses disapear from the server dialogue boxs. If I exit and enter
the WG client server again, the server address are return only to be
wiped out by if I try using refresh.
Pinging the server or the other client returns, except when the system
is first booted up, timeouts.
If I exit the WG server and re-enter I not only get the server
addresses back but I can also ping the addresses of the other two
machines but after a few seconds I start to get timeout errors.
I am obviously establishing contact. but for some reason that contact
is being disrupted after a very short time and I lose contact.
I have tried re-installing on all machines, both wingate and the
drivers with no luck. I have also swapped cables and hub slots but to
no avail. The lights on the hub and the mams report a working network
but but for everything else; nada.
Any help would be more than appreciated.
