Computer Help / Re: Network dropping and switches.
« on: June 06, 2018, 10:03:07 AM »
I don't have any experience of servers or switches but it does sound like an IP conflict.

I assume you are experienced enough to use IP addresses for the static ones outside of the DHCP range to prevent the router DHCP assigning the same one to the devices that are using wireless ?

Does the system work without the new dedicated server computer switched on ?

I've asked my Support to have a look at your thread.

Hold off on using the repair program on Win 10 Pro as there have been a few complaints about Windows Update not working after running the repair program on that version of Win 10 - but not sure yet whether it is specific to the Pro version - - it doesn't happen on my Win 10 Home.

Can you open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter these cmds to see what they report.

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

They will both take a little while to run, but let me know what the sfc /scannow reports.

Is there a firmware update for your router - I think you have said you are using a Netgear router ?

Yes, occasionally the Virtual Adapters can cause DHCP problems so you end up with no connection.

You may well find a DHCP error in Event Viewer.

I don't see anything in that CBS log that would give me cause for concern - it's when it reports it cannot do something that you have problems.

Did that sfc /scannow report it was unable to repair some items and was that sfc /scannow run before you regained connectivity or after ?

If you ran it before regaining connectivity, can you run it again to see what it reports.

In your Reply #6 you say the Internet is working ?

Not sure now why you say it isn't.

I still need to see the full CBS log as the one you posted wasn't complete.

Are you able to connect in either of those browsers in Safe Mode with Networking ?

This mode will isolate all 3rd party programs including your antivirus program which can block connectivity.

Have you run the Internet troubleshooter to see what that reports ?

When you have Internet connectivity problems, they are usually recorded in Event Viewer.

A couple or so cmds run from a cmd prompt run as an admin can also resolve connectivity problems and they are -

netsh winsock reset catalog

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /registerdns

shutdown /r /t 00

and see what it's like after the reboot.

You will get an error on the ipconfig /renew if you don't have the machine wired up.

Internet connectivity is also dependent upon the following services set to a specific way and other than the Wired AutoConfig should show as running.

Can you go Start - type services.msc and press enter then check the status of the following services to this list -

Their startup type should be Automatic or Manual

COM+ Event System
Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Server
TCP/IP Netbios helper
Wired Autoconfig is set to manual.
WLAN AutoConfig (Vista/7 wireless configurations only)
Workstation

This is a list of how all of your services should be - https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/236709-services-restore-default-services-windows-7-a.html

Sometimes connectivity problems are caused by other things in the computer.

One is (TCP/IPv6) being checked in the adapter's Properties and another can be the MS Virtual Wireless Adapter.

It can also be a DNS problem.

Go Start type ncpa.cpl and press enter.

Right click on whichever adapter you are using and select Properties.

Uncheck the box for (TCP/IPv6) then click on (TCP/IPv4) and then on Properties.

Click on the lower button for Use the following DNS servers and in the top row type 209.244.0.3 then tab down and enter 209.244.0.4 in the lower row.

Check the box to Validate settings upon exit - OK - Close where the troubleshooter should run.

The troubleshooter may have already reported a DNS problem and if so, changing the DNS servers should resolve.

Those are Level3's DNS servers which are the ones I use.

As for the MS Virtual Wireless Adapter - if you don't use a VPN then you don't need it and it can be disabled with the following cmd run from an admin cmd prompt.

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow

It can be reinstated by changing disallow to allow

Enter exit to close the cmd window.

You would reboot to see if it made any difference.

The Speed & Duplex is more to do with data transfer between machines, but I've just wired up this laptop and the router lights have been going wild and while they eventually settle down, the connection remains stable even though the Ethernet light flashes occasionally.

I know this because I'm listening to a radio station and there's no break in the signal.

I wouldn't worry about it if your connection remains stable.

You could try playing around with the Speed & Duplex settings.

Go Start - type devmgmt.msc and press enter.

In Device Manager click on View/Show hidden devices and expand Network adapters.

Right click on the Ethernet adapter and select Properties/Advanced then scroll down and click on Speed & Duplex

You could use the dropdown to try the 100Mbps Full Duplex to see if that improves, but really, if once the machine is booted up and you have a solid connection, then I wouldn't worry about what is happening on boot.

Thanks for that.

I wonder if Win 10 Pro is the determining factor - perhaps the other members in this thread could post their version of Win 10 they are using.

OK, I now have a third PC that was updated to 1803, worked fine including update function, then I ran  Then Windows Repair Tool and now that third PC gives me an error on update.  Sadly I tried to do a DISM repair and that did not work (this time).  The first PC was repaired by doing a clean install.  The second PC had unrepairable issues when SFC was run but did fix all the issue when a DISM repair was run.  It looks like I am going to have to do a clean install on this third PC...I wish the admin at Tweaking.com would recognize that the tool is causing an issue on 1803 systems.  Too many of us have had the same issue...

Can you post the make & models of the computers affected and can I suggest you perform a repair install instead of a clean install.

A repair install doesn't affect personal stuff or installed programs so will be less time consuming.

Go back to the link for the steps to reinstate Teredo.

The second post in this thread explains what Teredo Tunneling is for and while it may not be needed at the moment, if it has a yellow alert on it, then it needs repairing.

Yes, you would need the Brother software to reinstall the printer.

It could be the server on their end which could have also accounted for it running for so long.

Download and run the appropriate version of the System Update Readiness Tool.

This can repair other things besides update problems.

The 64bit version is a 533MB download so it may be worth selecting Save on the download should you need to run it again.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/947821/fix-windows-update-errors-by-using-the-dism-or-system-update-readiness

Scroll down the page to select either of the first two depending upon whether you are running 32 or 64bit.

Its log can be found in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS then double click on the Checksur one which can also be posted.

Did your machine come with Win 7 Pro or was it installed ?

43
That doesn't sound healthy.

Perhaps you should put Raid back on before progressing further.

I don't know what effect booting up with install media and performing a chkdsk /f would have on that set up.

44
There seems to be some missing from the bottom of the log, but from what it has reported, there doesn't appear to be anything wrong.

Did the sfc still report corruption ?

45
So can you configure the BIOS to just read from the remaining drive - if I understand Raid1 ?
