TCP/IP Corrupt?

By Dr Greenthumbs ·
I am on an NT 4 network. I can get on the internet, and the loopback test works, but I cannot ping my own IP or others on the network. I have uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled TCP/IP but to no avail. I have a decent nic in a decent Dell Dimension XPS T600r. Any thoughts on what to do? How do I install a fresh version of TCP/IP without too much crap?

TCP/IP Corrupt?

If you can get on the internet with your network connection, then tcp/ip is not the problem.

It might be better if you let us know what you are trying to accomplish. Is it the "sharing" of your internet connection from all of the computers?If your computer is connected to dsl/cable modem and has a static or automatic ip, then (depending on your OS -- win2k,nt then use ipconfig or win9x,me thenn use winipcfg) figure out what your DNS, ip, subnet mask and gateway are. A lot of companies are now hiding this information -- you may find a non-routable address (go to www.grc.com and have them report your ip address back to you -- they will find the ip that you are using).

Are you using any kind of a router? Or are you configured with Internet Connection Sharing Software? Without one or the other, you will not be able to share your internet connection.

What is happening, is that the computer accessing the internet has a routable ip address.... the other computers on the network are not sharing that ip address on your network. Workgroup/domain, ip address, subnet mask, gateway, may all be different on the computers that the Dell cannot reach or see.

You say the station is on an NT network, but is the station itself running NT? If so it could be a proxy problem. If not it could be a login problem. Go to Start -Run and type in Command (Windows 9X) or Cmd(NT). Than type in Net VIEW. What is the response, if it says you need to login first then there is login problem. More information would help.
If you are not on NT do not bypass the login by ESC.
