    Network Help

    Yeah never thought I'd see the day I'd type _that_ title.

    Ok, we have 2 Pcs, and a PC acting as a Router. In addition there's occasionaly a laptop and an iphone or two, but for now focusing on these three.

    I shall Call my PC "PC1", the PC I'm trying to access "PC2" and the router PC "Router"


    PC1 can ping Router, but not PC2
    PC2 Can ping PC1 and Router
    Router can ping PC1 but not PC2

    PC2 has internet and can access all network stuffs.

    Workgroup "FFXI" is able to be accessed by PC2.
    Workgroup "FFXI" Results in "Network path not found" on PC1
    Workgroup "FFXI" is not shown in browser on Router

    PC1 nor PC2 have firewalls, Router only has IPtables.

    PC1 Trying to ping PC2 by Host Name, then IP, then pinging router.

    Can you show me a ipconfig of pc2?

    I personally set up static local IPs based on MAC addresses, and I usually start at a.b.c.110 to avoid having any devices connected to the network take up a desired IP.

    Here you go

    I have my DHCP set up to lease from 100+
    All the server stuff is <100 (For instance the outer is .1, the WAP is .5)

    Could it have something to do with PC1's node type being set to "unknown" and PC2's node type being set to "broadcast" ?

    I would think that, but the rotuer is Mode Broadcast

    UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST
    And it can't ping PC2 either.

    When was it last working? Do you have a switch that you can hook up to see if the problem follows the machine?

    Can you swap the ethernet ports that the machines are hooked up to, and see if the same machines have the same problems?

    Not quote sure when it was last up, recently I just wanted to get my roommates trance :/

    Currently I have Mode.->Router PC->GiGE Switch->Clients
    You want me to try using my other GiGE switch?

    Swapped the ports and it still does the same thing. I guess I can try swapping the cable on PC2 out later but I'll have to go get a new one first, don't have any that long lying around except the one connected.

  9. #9
    Before you switch out the switch or get a new cable, are there link lights on the switch for PC1, PC2 and router?

    If there isn't one for PC2, go ahead and get a new patch cable and see if that fixes the problem.

    Nevermind, you did say that it was able to access the internet.

    I don't know what's going on tbh. Are you sure there isn't a firewall running on PC2? I know those can be set to block pings.

  10. #10
    We're positive there's no firewall. I'm stumped :/
