PC not logging onto network

By jmetthe ·
At a satellite, they are unable to log onto the network. I can ping them and they can ping me and the mail server. But when it comes to logging on the login script runs and then the hour-glass just sits on the desktop and never logs them in and noerror messages appears? Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

PC not logging onto network

In these type of cases its always a good idea to go into network properties and remove all instances of TCP/IP, Client for Micrsoft Networks and any adapters.. then reboot and reinstall them. Normally takes about 15 minutes to get everything installed again and has fixed about 85% of my "wierd" network connectivity problems. But I only do this after all the other normal network troubleshooting techniques have been used. (ex:ping, winipcfg -release/renew, ect.) Best of luck!

Obviously, the two points can see each other since the pings worked. It could be that the client configuration has changed somehow. Are they a part of the network? Are all the necessary protocols installed? Are the services running properly on the server--as with other clients locally? Make sure--and I know this sounds stupid--that the primary login is the server and not windows. I do what Answer # 1 does--uninstall all client, NIC and TCP/IP stuff, reboot not connected, reinstall, and then reboot again. Please let us know how this turned out for you when you close this thread with a comment--very interesting problem! Best wishes!

are you on a network card with vpi and vci settings they may need to be changed manually I couldn't sign on for this reason with noway to change the vci and vpi I download efficent networks software which allowed me to change vpi to 8 and vci to 36 and everything worked fine then.I did get error messages though and could ping but not sign on.
