unable to log onto network bnc /thinnet

By Casemaker ·
Hi,
I had a network that is using bnc connectors with coaxial cable(a dual nic bnc, rj45). Previously three systems(win 95) were running fine. I built two new systems running win 98. I installed the same nic in each. The nic is a dual rj45 and bnc.It connected to my network in the lab using the rj45. Now when I try to connect to the existing client network it will not log on. The new name I used showed up on one of the other systems but it is not accessible. I have used new names and the workgroup is alright. I have uninstalled from windows setup all networking components and reinstalled. Uninstalled all services,protocols and such. Client for ms networks is the log on choice. I think I covered the basics. Client for netware shows up on the other two original systems but I dont think they have a novell network. Client for ms is there, the adapter is there,ipx/spx, netbeui, tcp and file for print. I also checked the properties of TCP/IP for the network card and it is all the same as the other pc?s I can not get this up and running. Any help?

if you have upgraded your system to win98 try this
click Start > run then type regedit and click OK. once registry editor look for this key
HKEY_Local_machine\Software\Microsoft\windows\currentversion\network\real mode net

look for autologon key in this location then delete it. restart windows and back you get your network neighbourhood

When your NIC was last connected to the network thru RJ45, it remembered the last state it was connected. So when you connect the network to the BNC connector, the NIC keep on thinking that it will still use port on RJ45.

To reset or change your port settings, you have to run the Setup program of that particular NIC and try to set your new NIC port setting. If you have no handy setup program, try NIC's manufacturer website.

Older NICs have these problems more often than not.

Hope this helps.

Check the basics, did you move the terminator to the 'new' end of the coax cable and is the cable run where you think it is run? Check the network card settings under the network control panel, is the media type set to auto? Which protocol are youusing (netbui, ipx, tcp)? If it is ipx, check the frame type. If ip, check your ip addresses.
