I have 37 HP Compaq t5520 Thin Clients at my place of business. We are just using them to have limited internet access at several of our locations. The first 6 of them I set up by first updating the system (like an OS upgrade), and then adding users and passwords. The first 6 connected to the internet perfectly, automatically obtaining the ips.
After those, however, no a single one will connect. The ones that I have already set up still connect, but the others will not. I have tried putting in a static ip and it still doesn't work. The thin client finds an ip for about 2 seconds, and then it's gone. They repeat this- no ip for about a minute and then an ip for 2 seconds. I have tried about 10 of them.
I have tried them in 4 different offices and I know it is not a bad connection.
I have also used the copy feature of the thin clients to completely copy the settings (including the upgrade) from a working think client on a flash drive, and copied it to a non-connecting thin client. The upgrade is there, the users are all set up, but it still won't connect.
Maybe I'm just missing some real simple networking thing, or maybe it's the thin clients.
I would appreciate any help in this matter.
