Thread: XP pro intermittent lan issue

  1. XP pro intermittent lan issue

    All,

    If anyone could help with the following it would be GREATLY
    appreciated.

    I have a netgear wireless router/adsl modem/hub, but, to reduce
    complication I have now attached all machine's via ethernet cables.

    When I first boot up the xp pro machine it can ping and be pinged by
    other machines on the network. After 5 or so minutes though I get
    "ping timed out" when trying to ping the xp pro machine from a another
    computer on the network of when pinging another machine from the xp
    pro machine. This problem disappears immediatly though if I access the
    internet on the xp pro machine (this somehow re-registers the machine
    with the router?) and I can again ping and be ping'd(!) again.

    Throughout the intermittancy thought the xp pro machine can always
    ping the router.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help, I have been trying to sort this for 2 weeks
    now. I have been searching all the channels and looking at all offical
    help pages.

    Any thoughts appreciated in advanced.

    NB:

    The router is being used as the DHCP server. Sometimes the xp pro
    machine is visible on the network after a while. XP pro shows some
    event logs (every two or so ours though, so not really frequent enough
    to match this problem?) of not being able to get a ip address from the
    dhcp server. All firewall software is turned off. I tried removing QOS
    but have now put it back as made no difference.

    Ian;

    Any of the following three XP "security" updates may cause behaviour
    similar to what you describe:

    818043
    330994
    813489

    If this doesn't settle it, Ian, you'll have to give us a bit more
    information with which to work. So, for example, what are the:

    - model # and firmware version of the netgear appliance
    - service patches applied to the xp pro client
    - os configurations for the other clients (and do they have this problem?)

    There are two v. good resources for these issues: practicallynetworked.com
    and dslreports.com/forum. Please let us know when you've discovered the
    solution.

    g'luck,

    Ungoy

    If you have a wireless PCMCIA card make sure it support wireless zero
    configuration service, if not disable wirless zero configuration
    service in the XP based computer.
