Not only was the OS Windows 98se but they had those DUMB HUBS in the network. Slowly we recovered by not only getting a better IT staff that knew about drivers and more but tossing out DUMB HUBS for SWITCHED HUBS. The prior IT staff had to be let go since they keep at it by reloading 98se improperly and had deveoloped a bad attitude. Even the looming layoff didn't help them get their act together.
After replacing the dumb hubs, a few network cards and a dozen installs (more?) did the network settle down.
Hope this helps.
Hi... I'm having troubles with some computers in the LAN of my job, this LAN is about 700 nodes, everyday some users want to login, they receive the next message: No domain server was available to validate your password. We use the winipcfg to renew the network adapter, sometimes works sometimes not.
Obviusly the PC's have their cable connected and there's no problems with the jack or the configuration of the connector.
PC's with this problems are Win98 SE and this happens everyday with several users.
Do you think this is a computer problem or a DHCP server problem?
