    Can’t gain internet access!

    Locked

    by mak15 ·

    Hi,

    Recently, I had setup a PC(WIN95) in a NT network. When I go in to Network Neighborhood, I can see other sharing computer, but just can’t gain the internet access, don’t know why?
    I added IPX/SPX, TCP/IP and NETBEUI in network properties. Try to ping the gateway, can’t find it. Then I also added Microsoft DLC32, of course, that didn’t help any. Now I’m out of ideas, could anyone help me out here?
    Thanks for your time!!!

    Regards,

    -Mak

      Check the IP Address that the new computer is using.

      To go thru a gateway and or router you may have only a certain range of IP addresses that will work.

      Check another computer that internet access works and see what it’s IP address is.

      Then try and use the same IP range on the new computer.

      This happens alot if you use static IP address on your network.

      I’d agree with the first answer – we need more info.

      first off, TCP/IP is usually enough to get you internet access, but:
      you need an IP address that is on the same subnet as your router (if going direct) or the local proxy server if you are using one.
      you also need to configure the DNS server details correctly, and enter the IP address of your router.
      also name and port number of proxy server if it is local (ISP proxy details are only needed occasionally!)

      More info please!

        you mentioned that the other users are using DHCP to obtain an IP address – set your TCP/IP to ‘aquire IP address automatically’ to pick up a DHCP dupplied IP address. if you want to see all the settings given to another machine, then run winipcfg on the other machines to get all the IP information given to a PC by DHCP.

        open another PCs web browser and check their proxy settings (in IE5 go to tools-internet options-connections-LAN settings) and copy those settings into your browser. typically they take the form of a proxy server name, and a port number (usually 80).

        hope this helps

        john.

      Hi,
      The other of PC are using DHCP server to log in to the server and gain internet serivce. I had tried to input IP address and subnet mask … But it doesn’t help. How can I find proxy server??? I have no idea what that is!
      Doesn’t theinfo above help? Hope so.

      Ok first off if the network is only nt and 95/98 then all you need for network protocols is TCP/IP.If your have any Novell then you will need IPX/SPX
      1. Check setting on a computer that can access the web
      2. Set the computer for DHCP
      3. Set the DNS IP address
      4. Set your GATEWAY
      5. Configure for Proxy only if your Server is running Proxy.
      REBOOT
      If you have any other questions on how to find out info please email me rcamp71570@yahoo.com

      First verify that all of the network tcp/ip properties settings for the nic card are entered for the new machine. Specificly the gateway and DNS configs. Look at an existing machine that works and duplicate all settings Except tcp/ip address. Unlessof course it gets an address automatically.

      Next: Are you using proxy server for internet access? If you are the user and machine will have to be added to allow access.

      Next: Check settings in explorer or netscape for lan access and proxy if used.

      Good Luck

      Acquire the phone number of the ISP used , and have their Tech walk you through it, provided yours is not a secure network and have a generalized setup that only allows the ISP to “see” the first machine , contrary to what the trend is , some ISP’s like mine, are more than willing , and have extensive knowledge in this area , according to their particular setup and security, and likely have the requirements set fourth by your particular company.
