  • Network users getting limited connection but server working fine

    I have a static ip and my modem is connected to a server, then the other computers are networked from there. I am able to browse from the server and both network connections say connected, but I am not able to get a connection from and other computer.

    I have tried switching around the cables and ip addresses, refreshing the DHCP leases, rebooting and all other manner of things but nothing is working.

    What could be causing this issue?

    Can you draw a diagram, with some real IP internal IP addresses

    What server and client OS are you using?
    Is RRAS configured?

      ...and if it ever worked or is it a new layout?

        i found the issue,, the problem was from a switch in one of the offices,, both ends of a cable were connected to the same switch

          Glad it worked out for you.
          If your switches support it, I recommend you enable spanning tree protocol (STP). It detects network loops and blocks the port. Configuration pretty strait forward.
