Windows XP Server Computer - Internet Problems
« on: November 23, 2012, 12:04:56 PM »
Hello,

I took some old computers and made it a pretty good Server computer that i'm going to use to host a website and a Minecraft server.

I did a whole system clean and reinstalled Windows XP on it ( Service Pack 3 ).
Now i'v been trying to get my Internet to work on it for hours but can't get it working.

I have the integrated Internet Wired Connection and i also installed another just to make sure some of them works.
When i plug in the internet cable in the Motherboard it happens nothing it just says "Connected" but at 400Mbps, and thats to much to be true. Also i cant enter internet.

When i plug in the cable on the extra internet card it loads and then it says Limited or no connection something.

I really hate Windows XP when it comes to connection to internet...

Help me please.. :)

Regards
Hyldran0

#1 One end you plugged into your computer

#2 What is connected at the other end of that cable?

Did you also make sure you installed the correct network drivers?

In a router lol. If i plug that cable in my other computer it instantly work and internet goes in.



And Shane. The network drivers on the extra internet card did install automatic, i think.
And the one in the motherboard did also install when i started the computer for the first time.
But i can look around and look for drivers.

The fact that it said 400 mb tells me there might be a driver problem.

Also on the system can you make sure you dont have a static IP set.

Open a cmd.exe window and put
ipconfig /all

DO that with the network cable plugged in.

Post what it says and lets take a look :wink:

Very odd. Since it is old hardware have you ran some hardware checks? Also look for any bad sectors?

Yesterday, i installed a new copy of Windows XP on it, no problems there.

After installation i sat like 7-8 hours trying to get the internet working so i could check for updates and such.

There were alot of new hardware that needed drivers, but i just wanted the net to work first.
And the network drivers for both my motherboard and the new internet card were installed it said.

I did install a driver for my internet card that i found with the name i looked up on google.
I restarted my computer and then the login screen came up and i write my password and it just loads, then it cames up a windows saying logging off. then back to login screen.

So now i'm reinstalling Windows..

chkdsk /f /r

Do that when it is backup. It will say it cant and would you like to do it at next boot. Hit yes and reboot.

It will take a while to run. Sometimes Windows doesnt do it and you have to try it again. But once it is running it will check for any bad sectors. :wink:

With a fresh install there is no way it will have a static IP.

I have a feeling you might have bad sectors, as that would explain the very odd behavior. Bad memory would cause blue screens so I dont think that is the problem.

The chkdsk will take a while, maybe an hour or more. I will be off and on today so post when your done.

When it finishes the chkdsk it will post in the event viewer the results :wink:
