I work in an office with 12 PC's and try and take care of the network system by myself but am having problems since i came back from christmas. I think the grinch has been having some fun! We have an ADSL connection which passes through a Linksys ADSL gateway (BEFDSR41W) and would then go onto a Linksys Firewall (BEFSX41) but I have been trying to sort out this problem without the firewall so as to simplify the connection. But anyway from the Gateway or Firewall the connection then goes to 2 Sitecom 8 port Network Switches. This then goes through the cable box to the PC's, but for some reasons 3 of the PC's will no longer access the network. I have plugged the cabling that would go into the back of the PC's into a laptop and this has worked fine but for some reason they do not seem to respond. I can ping the PC's from other computers on the network and can ping the ADSL gateway and printer which is on the server from these errant comps but they just don't seem to want to access the internet or the file server. Has anyone got any suggestions on how I can try and sort this problem out or have any ideas whatsoever as I've got nothing left?
