Thin Client - winxp embedded -made by 'wyse' model '9650xe'

I am an Admin for our small network and we are experiancing a Thin Client issue. we run pc's,terminals, and thin clients on our network. the rest of the machines are booting just fine, the issue lies with the thin clients. When we boot(or restart) the thin clients with the network cable in, it gets stuck at the "intel boot agent" when it should be recieving its Ip address and won't go any farther then that.

If we start the thin client without the network cable plugged in it will boot up to the desktop just fine and then we plug the network cable in and it gets its IP address with no problems.

sort of a strange issue but have seen much worse in the past. we can't seem to figure this one out though and i was hoping for some assistance from the experianced admins here at BC.

All of your advice and expertise are appreciated, Thanks in advance!!

I'm not a network admin, however I can offer my still offer my advise. :thumbsup:

Could the Thin Client be trying to do a network boot and not being able to complete it hangs at the intel boot agent?

I'd look at the boot priority order.
