I have a network with a linksys router handing out IPs (dchp). There are 4 computers working fine, great, and dandy. There is one laptop we are trying to hook to the network, that for the life of it will not work correctly. I have moved it do different points in the network. I have given it a static IP. But what happens is it gets an IP addrsess after a longer-then-normal-wait. Then if you ping www.yahoo.com (or even the gateway) it loses 25 to 50% of the packets. So if you loose 25% of your data obviously the internet via IE isn't going to work... I'm stumped seems how everything else is working great. I took the laptop to another network and it works GREAT there, so it isn't the network card. It has the same problem all over the network so it isn't the cable.... any ideas? S?
Thanks

Have you checked to see if there is a firewall blocking traffic?

or, get both the laptop and a PC online together and try ipconfig /all and compare the settings to see if you can spot any differences.

Apart from that, don't know, but I'll think about it and maybe have a chat with the bishop.

Check the speed/duplex mode setting on the laptop's LAN card. It may be that you have a duplex mismatch or an autonegotiation problem. Try fixing the speed/mode of the port on the switch and the laptop's card to the same settings and see if that makes any difference

what happened is I guess there was a problem while updating the firm ware... it is the strangest thing I've ever seen! (well not really, but still strange)
