    Internet Problems at School!!!!

    Hello all.

    Our school network was working quite happily until..............

    The powers to be, decided to get a chap from DELL to check our system over to see what upgrades were needed etc.

    After 2 days he was finished and went on his merry way.

    Next day the pupil had problems accessing the internet....some connected ...some did not..

    I checked the speed from the supplier to the router which was fine..

    It seems the problem is on the school side.

    Any ideas on what I should check

    Ta John

    Did the guy from dell make any changes? e.g. to switches?
    Can you ping the router ok from different machines on your network?

    Sounds like you a have a switch not working. Time to go and check the lights in the cupboard!

    I would agree - note down which ones can't connect - is it always the same computers? Do they all go to the same switch?
