No Internet Today...

    I have a small home network running windows 2000 server and a client using
    XP Pro. I have a Linksys router dealing with DHCP allocation and connect to
    the internet through a DLink ADSL Modem.

    Today, I have found that although I can ping all relevant hardware and my
    ISP (who confirm that I am logged on), I cannot access email eternally or
    use the internet.

    The only thing I did with the server yesterday was install remote/routing in
    preparation for establishing a VPN, which I have still to do.

    Does this sound like it could be the problem or is it some sort of DNS
    thing, or is it something else entirely.

    Incidentally, I have used ipconfig released/renewed/flushedDNS and
    registerDNS to try and sort things out with no success.....

    Any help appreciated...

  2. It will be something in the router service you installed on 2k, disable all
    the rules and you things should work again.
    On the other hand, if your machines are using the linksys router as the
    default gateway and not the 2k server then this kind of rules out what i
    just said. Can you confirm how your routing is setup.

    I have the router connected to the adsl modem through its wan port. The
    server and client PC's are connected to serparate ports on the router.

    I have been using this system for about a month with no problems. I have
    tried connecting direct to each pc in turn and resetting the modem but no
    luck.

    I'm considering using my backup ghost image on the server to see what that
    does..

  4. You could illiminate the problem being the 2k server by unplugging it from
    the router. If things still fail then it's a problem with your router or
    internet connection. Try plugging the adsl modem directly into a PC, if that
    works its definetly your router. Life would be easier if you could use your
    2k machine for routing but thats just my opinion :eek:)

    Since my earlier post (on my Sister's PC as "Julie") I have reverted to a
    saved ghost image on the server to no effect. I have tried bypassing the
    router but they still wouldn't work.

    Currently, I'm using an old modem on my XP machine....#

    I think I have eliminated the router and the win2000 machine. I installed
    the adsl modem direct into the XP machine and it still doesn't work after
    changing the settings.

    I think it could be the DNS server somewhere. I get an IP address for the
    dns server of 81.27.64.22 which I can't ping whether through this old modem
    I've reverted to or the ADSL one I normally use.

    Using this old modem I get the former DNS IP along with one of 4.2.2.1 which
    I can. Does anybody know what the 81.etc IP address is all about?

    Still confused...

    Finally up and running again. I suspect it was something to do with my ISP
    although they claim they've had no problems.....

    Thanks for the help..
