Workstation not accessing internet

By jpod ·
We have a network of 10 machines accessing the internet modem through a celer access unit connected to the hub.
Using Netscape communicator 4.75 as browser all network machines have been set up identically and nine are working fine.
Have tried reinstalling netscape and network driver (Netgear FA310TX).
Network machines automatically find IP addresses (found from Celer Access Unit)
Problem is:- one machine refuses to access the internet although it recognises all other machines in the network (LAN).
It was working fine until some maintainance was conducted on the Celer Access unit to check settings. All settings were returned to original.

Try and get it to release or renew its IP address and settings from the Celer access unit. It sounds like it is retaining invalid options from somewhere.

Make sure you can ping the Celer from the workstation. Run ipconfig /all (NT) or winipcfg /all (Win98)on the machine you have problems with, and compare it with the same results of this command on a working computer. Make sure the settings are identical. Try changing the port on the hub the computer is connected to (May be the port is bad, although I don't think so).

This should solve your problem. If not post more details here, i'll be checking regulary.

Victor

It should be a protocol definition or corruption. You may see and access others machines with netbios but tcp/ip is not working fine.
To check this use a ping <Internet_device_router_address>
or ping <server_ip_address>
Also check under the iexplorer.exe properties, the connection tab, sometimes ie doesnot detect properly it's configuration and defaults to another gateway.
