Hope somebody could help me urgently.
I have a problem with our server which I cannot connect to internet. The setup is like this: We are using Linksys router, connected are the server and a switch (where all workstations are connected). Workstations are all working fine aside from one problem, they cannot ping the server and cannot access the shared drive (which reside on the server)
From the server (windows 2003), it shows it's connected to the LAN, but:
* server cannot ping the gateway
* cannot open internet
I tried the ff. resolution but it didn't worked out:
*To check whether it's the cable that causing the problem, I tried to use my laptop and connect the same cable that the server use, (disabling the wifi), and it works fine.
*To check if it's the NIC or TCP/IP setting, I ping 127.0.0.1 and it works fine
Now, the problem is clearly on the system, not in hardware or cable or router. From here, I don't know what to do. I am trying to install a registry cleaner to see if it's something to do with that. But hopefully somebody can give me some solution on this.
