Dell Optiplex 390 - Other Computers Cannot Access Machine Over The Network
Jul 25, 2012
I'm on a large network in my office and we recieved new computers(dell optiplex 390) I'm trying to access a mysqlexpress database on my machine from another one and I'm not able to even access the computer using \MYCOMPUTER method with the same user/pass as my machine on the one I'm trying to connect from. But still no one in my office can reach my computer.
My av is OfficeScan.
+ Disabling the firewall(windows no other firewall in place).
+ Checking network settings
+ enabling sharing settings
+ allowing anonymous connections via the regestry value
Very soon for the second time we will be replacing systems in our (grad school) student computer Lab from the time of its opening in January, 1998. The monitors are recessed down below glass desk surfaces and are 17-inch CRT (Dell).Our current (medium) computers are SFF GX-150 and have 512MB RAM (doubled from the original 256) and 80 GB hard drives. The new GX620 will have 2GB RAM, 160MB hard drive.In addition, our current 10/100 Ethernet LAN for this part of the campus is also supposed to be upgraded to Gigabit (switch). Any experience of using Gigabit in an organization's local area network to find out any concerns for which I should be alert as we begin this new phase. Incoming students arrive before middle of August so the switch-out needs to be done fairly quickly and smoothly. What concerns should I have?
I have a strange error on my home network that I cannot find a solution to.I have an Huawei SmartAX MT882 from TalkTalk acting as a modem connected to a D-Link DSL-G624T acting as a router/switch. Connected to the D-Link I have a Windows 7 Pro machine (64-bit, SP1) and an XP (home i think) machine (sp 2 i think).The SmartAX modem is set up to perform DHCP and DNS relaying and the D-Link has DHCP turned off and DNS relay turned off.The Win7 machine can access the network, get an IP address and access the internet without problems, regardless as to the status of the XP machine.The XP machine can access the network, get an IP address and access the internet with no problems ONLY of the win7 is powered up. When the win7 machine is off, the XP machine seems to drop about 25% of the ping packets between it and the D-Link router and has no internet access (because of this i assume). [code]
New Win-7 machine set up. I used the printer set-up wizard to install a networked printer in the new machine with absolutely no problem. Proved it would print from that machine.Now, I get a call informing me that her old XP machine, which had been printing to the network printer with no problems, will no longer print.Documents go into the print queue, but they don't get printed.No error messages show up.I did some messing around via remote access, and finally removed the printer with the intention of reinstalling it.Scanning for network printers turned up several redundant instances of the same printer with different names. Some are identified as "invalid" some a "access denied". Bottom line. I can't get any of the selections to install.On the Win-7 machine I did find a window that indicated that the printer is designated as being shared, but I didn't explicitly set it for sharing when I installed it. Also, I somehow got to a window that told me that for printers that were to be shared with other versions of windows I could optionally install drivers to support such machines. Didn't have the driver disk handy and took the window down. Now I can't even find it again.I need sorting this all out.Part of the problem is that out there in "network land" there are redundant remnants of previous installations that are being remembered inappropriately.
I have a Dell Optiplex 780 running Windows XP and a wireless router model 7500 from Verizon. I recently bought this desktop and want to use my old one so the kids can play games on it. However I can't connect to the internet with the old system. I tried running a USB cable from the wireless modem to the old system to no avail. I tried hooking up a wireless-G Broadband router by Linksys to the wireless router and that didn't work. Does there have to be some wifi hardware/software on these desktops? [code]
Im unable to get my router working as my machine has no ethernet controllers installer.I have a dell, optiplex gx260. The lan in enabled in the Bios. I have searched and tried a number of driver None of which have worked, I have tried the 3com 3c905c txm, intel gigabit LOM, and im about to try the Intel 8254x1000 intregrated netwk driver (which i dont think'll work as its the same as the Lom one). if that doesnt work is it best to reinstall the chipset drivers?
I recently installed VMplayer on my Win 7 machine, and I installed Win XP on the VM. So far everything seems to work fine. However, on my home network I have a Linksys NSLU2 mini network server which has a flash drive plugged in that contains my files that I access from any of my home PC's. No problem accessing it from the Win 7 machine, but when I try to setup a "new network place" on the XP system, I get an error telling me that the address is not valid.
I installed a fresh Windows XP Pro on my Optiplex gx270 last week. Everything was fine but now I cannot get an internet connection. I followed all the steps on the dell support web site for the windows reinstall, putting all the drivers on in the correct order, all from my original resource CD. Then downloaded the new recommended driver for my service tag from the dell site, and still no ethernet controller driver is found (a yellow question mark with an exclamation mark on top in windows device manager). Tried a couple of times with the dell online chat, but was disconnected right away. Then spent another 1+ hour on the phone with dell tech support this morning. After uninstalling and reinstalling the same drivers I had previously installed, they apparently had no other suggestions and disconnected me. So I'm left with what was a pretty decent machine that is incapable of connecting to the internet.
I recently purchase a refurbished Optiplex GX620 with WXP Professional OS. The ethernet controller, along with number of devices, needs a driver. I have downloaded what I think are the approprite files but get the message that the unzipped file is part of a series of disks and I need to insert the last of this series of disks. I ain't got no stinking disks!
I am taking a camera class, everyone sits a desk with a fairly new Optiplex 780, with Windows 7 pro on them and 20 inch Dell Professional monitors.I want to be able to setup something easily so the teacher can share his screen on all of the computers in the class, the projector is terrible.Net Meeting does not exist. Vista had Windows MeetingSpace which would have been absolutely perfect. Windows 7 has SharedView, which is discontinued, is a separate download, and has to be used over the internet with a windows live login.Is there some VNC, free app out there that the teacher can put on his laptop, and have everyone connect to? Over the lan? There are many web-based options, but that probably be slow.
I can use the Bomgar and work and host a presentation, which is what I will probably do, but I have a feeling it is going to suck up a ton of bandwidth and run like crap. We want to display examples of photography in full color.He of course doesn't even know of these plans. But I want to utilize these computers we are sitting at.Could I bring in a Vista laptop, start a MeetingSpace, and have the Windows 7 computers connect to it?
I see a lot of postings about getting the GX270 working with a ghost boot floppy.
Dell Optiplex GX270 Onboard Intel LOM (Intel 1000 Pro) and Ghost 8.0 Corporate Edition using a Ghost Console Boot Partition.I'm using identical Intel Drivers on both the floppy and the Boot Partition.It works from the floppy(only using PC-DOS however).
When started from the ghost console boot partition it pauses after displaying the MAC address of the card which after a few minutes it displays an error message "command interpreter missing (command.com)".
I've gotten the scenario to work with a Broadcom Gigabit Extreme network card, haven't tried this with an Intel Pro 1000 NIC (as opposed to the onboard NIC) to eliminate the driver as the culprit. I suspect this might have something to do with the SATA configuration.and no, the -FNI or the -NOIDE switch will not work in this situation as the *.exe that starts on the boot partition is ngctdos.exe and not ghost.exe.Which, I'm assuming is the app that listens for instructions from the Ghost Console.
I am wanting to move an existing wireless LAN PCI 802.11 b/g adapter WN5301A card from another tower computer into my Optiplex 755 mintower. Is this compatible, or do I need to get a different wireless card?
I have an ASUS RTN66U running Tomato firmware.I have temporary (a month or so) Internet access via a Huawei E3131 3G USB dongle. I am posting this question using said Internet access.
I would like other machines on my network to be able to access the Internet in the usual fashion. That is, through my ASUS router.My initial thought was to plug the dongle into the router and configure it to connect. However, it seems tomato does not support my dongle because I get a message to that effect in the log.
So my next thought was to "point" my router at my Windows machine which has the dongle plugged into it. Thus, any machine connecting to the router would then route through my Windows machine to the Internet.
I usually access my network computers by typing "\ipaddress" in run command. But sometimes this doesn't work so I have to type the computer name to access it. Similarly, sometimes i could not access with name but could access with ip.
Computer A: Vista x64 Home - connected to router by LAN<br><br> Computer B: Windows XP Home - connected to router wirelessly<br><br>
Both of these computers are connected to my router's network without problems. Computer B cannot access the internet through the network (but, neither has the multitude of other computers who connect to our network wirelessly)<br><br> Computer A can see Computer B in the Network Places, but attempting to access gives the error "network path not found".
Computer B can only see itself under Workgroup computers.<br><br> I have enabled NETBios on both machines.<br> Both machines are in the same Workgroup.<br> Both machines have a shared folder on the desktop with permissions set to everyone.<br> Both machines not only have firewalls disabled, but I have uninstalled them completely.<br>
whether it's possible to access information relating to 1 computer, from another machine that has previously connected to the same wifi network?For the first time I've connected my work computer to my home wireless network to work from home. When I return my computer to work, will they be able to see everything I've done on that home network using my personal laptop arous that time? My wifi network has WPA2 and has a password. I imagine the work computer would need some kind of logging software, how can I tell this?
I have an Intel celeron D, optiplex 320, xp. I just bought a wireless usb router and it shows full strength bars but says there is little or no connection. could that be the computer or my mobile connection? I can access internet on my phone though. I am having trouble getting connection to my computer. it was given to me by a friend so I don't know much about it but it is a 250 or 260 bit I think, around that? I have made sure the wifi was on.
I have one Dell Optiplex 390 (windows 7 64 bit), which is having one PCI slot and 3 PCIe slots.The built in NIC cards doesn't support network teaming. I require 2 team in my system. Do you know any PCIe card with network teaming facility?
