Hi all,


We have recently moved offices just down the road. After reconnecting the network, all computers connected except one, the one with all relevant files on it. I have checked cables, restarted router/computer.


Before i go calling tech support, is there any basics that i can check? Will doing ipconfig /renew help or cause more issues?  


Any help is greatly appreciated.

My guess is this important computer is running a static ip. You could check the computers network adapter ipv4 settings. Make sure that the ip of the machine in question is on the same subnet as the DHCP server.


What device is doing DHCP? Was this device reset? If the machine in question was the only one running a static ip, this might explain the problem. I would recommend you stay with static instead of using DHCP on a file server.


If the DHCP device was reset, you will need to add a lease reservation for the static ip devices including your file server.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
