Windows 2000 Networking Problem

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys

I will try to give you as much information as I can about my problem.

1st Computer (Master)

Specs Below


2nd Computer (Secondary)

Intel Celeron 766Mhz
396 Mb RAM
20 GB HDD


Ok, I am trying to establish a network and to network my ADSL 1.5

On my first computer, the settings are automatic, last time I tried to change them, i lost connection to the my ADSL

Both computers are set on automatic and can see themselves, but will not see each other or ping each other for that matter


I have both computers hooked into a DLink DES-1005D Switch and the Telstra SpeedTouch Modem is also into the switch


I hope this is all the information you require

what do you mean by see themselves? check to see if gateways match and subnet are the same....try to connect with IP address rather then Computer name...they should at least be able to ping each other if they are on the same network..

Unless you have the firewall on one or both of the computers to see your network as not trusted. Make sure the local network is a trusted network.

Do you know if the ADSL modem function as a NAT?
post #5 of 27
Thread Starter 
what i mean is they can both see "themselves" is that when i access the network, the workgroup shows up and the computer is in there, but it cannot see the other one

i dont know if the ADSL Modem functions as a NAT. I have also temporarily disabled my network to see if that helps,


I had a laptop running 98 a while ago and that networked perfectly, but i am doing the same thing i am now and no go


AS long as the subnets are the same, it shouldnt matter about the IP address should it, because it looks like Telstra has assigned me an IP address, problem is that if i change it, my internet disappears

Read through this thread. It deals with sharing an internet connection with a switch.

If your modem doesn't offer any NAT functionality, and you're only paying for one IP with your ISP, you cannot simply plug the machines into the switch and expect them to work. In any case, read the advice posted by The_Llama--it is certainly relevant to what you're trying to do.

Out of curiosity, exactly how did manage to make your Windows 98 machine connect to the Internet with this setup?

my mistake, i ahd a look at the laptop and it is running windows 2000

get this

i plug the network cable into my laptop and it automatically comes up with the internet and full networking.

so i check the ip and subnet and on the laptop it is set to automatic, if i set it to automatic on the 2nd Machine, it wont come up with that IP address.

so i change it to what the laptop says and still nothing


just for kicks, im going to add both machines IP addresses when set to automatic having a * for the last lot of digits for security purposes


1st Machine

IP 10.0.0.*
Subnet 255.255.255.*
Default Gateway 10.0.0.*


2nd machine

IP 169.254.38.*
Subnet 255.255.0.*
Default Gateway __________

Remind you, these figures are set up as automatic, i set the subnet the same on the other machine and doesnt make a scrap of difference

The ISP is recognising the MAC address of the laptop and is assigning an IP to that MAC address only. You should be able to hook up another machine by unplugging the router for like 5 minutes, and then hooking it all up again with the computer that you want to be the "main" one. If that doesn't work, try unplugging for more time. Then, to share the connection behind the switch, follow the link I posted before.
