    PLEASE HELP NETWORK ISSUE

    This is me at 09:30 i sign upto a education IT support forum with a NON EDUCATIONAL PROBLEM. Ive started writing this so i`ll finish, if you can help me out with this it would be grand...If not i can copy and paste this problem into other forums.

    I am having trouble with my works network at present. We moved our offices to a new location at the start of this week and i have had to move the network. Since moving i am unable to get it to work as it was before.

    The networks set up is.

    1 x Win2k3 server running our internal SQL databse.
    1 x Win2k3 server running as a webserver for our customers to view there information (obtained via internal sql server)
    4 x Win XP stations
    An ADSL Line

    See attached image for visual guide

    The main problem we are having is, we can have the network running in 2 states either where the xp machines can see the internal server or they can see the adsl modem.

    I am sure this is an IP issue for the states there is 2 ip address variations. if the IP address`s are 192.168.0.xxx they can see the interal server but if its 192.168.1.xxx then it see`s the modem. The server has a 192.168.0.xxx ip address. If i change all the IP and Default Gateways to match the 192.168.1.xxx i can not see the server but the server can connect to the internet.

    I have never attempted to do much with networks running servers just my small 4 pc home network.

    Would it be wise to try and introduce a new IP variation (192.168.2.xxx)???

    I have tried both manually configuring the ips manually and running them on automatic detection rebooting after changes but nothing to the effect of getting this system working again

    IP Details

    S1 - SQL Server IP - 192.168.0.253 D/gate - N/a
    S2 - Web Server IP -192.168.0.254 D/gate - 192.168.0.1

    C1 - Win XP Pro IP - 192.168.0.252 D/gate - 192.168.0.1
    C2 - Win XP Pro IP - 192.168.0.251 D/gate - 192.168.0.1
    C3 - Win XP Pro IP - 192.168.1.3 D/gate - 192.168.1.254
    C4 - win XP Pro IP - 192.168.1.4 D/gate - 192.168.1.254

    C1&C2 can see the server
    C3&C4 can see the adsl modem.

    I hope this is enough information for you to see what i mean. Any help or fingers pointing in the right direction would be great.

    Again sorry this isnt really an issur for this forum but i signed u and wrote half this message before my cup-o-tea kicked in and the eyes opend.

    Thanks in advance

    Re: PLEASE HELP NETWORK ISSUE

    What's ur subnet mask?

    If its 255.255.255.0 then any PC on the 192.168.0.xxx range will not see the PC's on the 192.168.1.xxx range and vica versa

    if you changed the subnet to, say , 255.255.254.0 then both ranges can be seen and accessed

    BTW, no images - guessing its cos its ur first post.

    Re: PLEASE HELP NETWORK ISSUE

    Your subnet mask is probably 255.255.255.0 - in which case anything in 192.168.0.X cannot see anything in 192.168.1.X and vice versa.

    Just change the IP address of the modem/router and C3/C4 to something in the other range, thus:

    S1 - SQL Server IP - 192.168.0.253 D/gate - N/a
    S2 - Web Server IP -192.168.0.254 D/gate - 192.168.0.1

    C1 - Win XP Pro IP - 192.168.0.252 D/gate - 192.168.0.1
    C2 - Win XP Pro IP - 192.168.0.251 D/gate - 192.168.0.1
    C3 - Win XP Pro IP - 192.168.0.250 D/gate - 192.168.0.1
    C4 - win XP Pro IP - 192.168.0.249 D/gate - 192.168.0.1

    modem/router IP - 192.168.0.1

    Hope that helps.
