  • Intermittent Connection

    I have 1 PC out of 50 that has intermittent connection problems to our gateway. The PC can connect for a short period then begins to timeout. Repair of the IP gives the PC connection again on occasion, but loses connection a minute later. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling TCP/IP stack, but same results. Tried DHCP and Static with same results.

    Only PC to experience this on this subnet.

    PC>HP Switch>Firewall>Router>Internet

    Need help fast!
    Any ideas?

    Try another Network Card and/or cables (wall to PC and Patch Panel to Switch)

      Re: Intermittent Connection

      Thanks for the quick response, but I found a solution.

      I did forget to mention that there was also a IP conflict. I ended up giving the machine a static IP and reserving the IP on the DHCP server.

        Well, that would make a "slight" difference
        Sorry, but my crystal ball must have been off when I posted above.

          If its getting it by DHCP then i'd be wondering why or do you have another machine with that ip statically assigned somewhere???

            Re: Intermittent Connection

            That's what is baffling about this whole thing. Nothing is reserved with that IP and I don't see a machine in DHCP with that IP address, although that doesn't mean there isn't a machine with a static IP assigned to it that i don't know about either though.

            Thanks for the help.

              Have you enabled conflict detection on your DHCP server???

              When the conflict happens try and narrow it down by switching off the machine with the conflict and checking for the machine then.

                To tell you the truth I haven't ever heard about that. Where can I find that option at? I've looked around a bit on my DHCP server but couldn't find anything relating to that.

                Thanks!
