Actually , my set up is an internet cafe with a server connecting 10 other clients . Sometimes server is browsing and other clients are not. when I restart the clients , nothing happen,when I restart the server alone nothing also happen but when I shutdown every host in the cafe for like one minute every thing starts browsing .
when every client stops browsing next time do the following :
1) find the individual IP addresses of each of the ten clients
2) try and ping the server from each client, and check the RTT
how are the clients connected to this server? is your server the gateway for all your clients or does it connect to the internet using a modem of some kind? what kind of internet connection do you have? what kind of modem are you using?
looking forward to your response
