Angry Cannot connect to the Network; ive tried EVERYTHING!

Hi everyone,

I'm at work and we have a lot of computers connected through the domain. There's a pretty routine method for setting everything up with the network for each new computer. Just added a new one to the network and it's not working. Installed drivers, etc

It uses DHCP to get IP and everything and half the times it can release/renew, sometimes it cant. Now it says its connected with the two blue monitors at the bottom, saying packets/received sent in the status (both rise together)!

But when opening any internet application, it takes a long time and then just fails. Also, we still cannot connect to the domain.

Tried different cords, different ethernet ports (ones i KNOW work because they work with other systems), different laptop on the same port, nothing works

Thank you!

traffic in the skyy

Do an IPCONFIG and post the results of that here.

Make sure that in ipconfig, it shows that it is a member of your domain. Also make sure that all ip configurations are correct, especially the default gateway.

Does your network use a proxy server anywhere? Do they use a default gateway? If they use a proxy server you'll need to input those in the cooresponding places (more likely than not for every application).

Is there connectivity between your computer and other computers on the network? Try pinging another computer on the network. If you can ping, then that means the network is functioning correctly, however all requests that lead to the internet are not making it through the default gateway.

Also check firewall settings to ensure that this computer's IP address is not being denied services such as HTTP or HTTPS, or any other services you may be using.
