Network access problem returns...
Hi all, so with reference to http://www.edugeek.net/forums/window...g-problem.html it has happened again!
Same laptop so that would suggest it is something wrong with the hardware except that the problem was the same with onboard nic and usb dock.
Yesterday the laptop lost communication with the server again.
Last time the fix that worked was to add the ip address in use to the exceptions list and then the laptop got a new one and all was well...until yesterday.
This time I tried giving the laptop a fixed ip address from a block of reserved ones and it works again...so now I will have to wait and see if it decides to lose the server again in this configuration.
Could this be caused by a problem with the switch it is connected to? [edit I actually took the laptop away and connected to a different socket and the problem remained]
Where else can I look? :confused:
