DSL WILL NOT WORK WITH SYGATE 4.0?????
TENLOWZ Oct-09-00 04:37 AM
I HAVE PACBELL DSL BUT WHEN I INSTALL SYGATE HOME NETWORK 4.0 IT STOPS WORKING? I DOWNLOADED THE SYGATE PROGRAM FROM THE INTERNET AND INSTALLED IT FINE. THEN WHEN I TRIED TO CONECT TO THE NET WITH MY DSL I GOT THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH???? I FINALLY GOT OUT OF THE SCREEN AND BACK TO MY NORMAL SCREEN. THE DSL WAS CONNECTED BUT WOULD NOT OPRN ANY WEB PAGES AND THE SYGATE WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE THE CONNECTION!!!! I CHANGED THE OUTGOING SETTING IN THE SYGATE CONFIGURATION MANAGER TO P.P.P.O (I THINK THATS THE CORRECT WAY IT READS) AND SELECTED TO INTERNAL CARD AS THE NIC CARD GOING TO THE HUB. THEN THE SYGATE RECOGNIZED THE CONNECTION BUT STILL WOULD NOT OPEN ANY WEB PAGES.

I HAVE THE CABLES CORRECT I'M SURE. I HAVE 2NIC'S IN THE COMPUTER. 1 HAS THE DSL MODEM CONECTED TO IT AND THE OTHER HAS AN RJ45 CONNECTED TO A HUB AND THE HUB HAS ANOTHER RJ45 CONNECTED TO IT FOR A CLIENT.

THE MAIN THING IS THAT THE DSL WILL NOT EVEN WORK WITH THE HOST ONCE THE SYGATE SOFTWARE IS LOADED. THE DSL WORKED FINE UNTIL I TRIED TO INSTALL THE SOFTWARE???? PLEASE HELP!!!!!

THANKS IN ADVANCE,
BRIAN

P.S.
IF THERE IS ANY CONFUSION IN MY SYSTEM SETTINGS PLEASE LET ME KNOW........

According to the SyGate news group... if you are running NTS version 1.34 you will run into trouble... update your NTS software to version 1.4 or later. Larry

I don't have it. From looking at their web site it appears you will have to get the upgrade from your service provider. Larry

WELL I GOT THE UPDATE AND NOW I CAN SURF ON THE SURVER BUT THE CLIENT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. I CAN SEE BOTH COMPUTERS IN THE NETWORK NEIGHBORHOOD BUT THE CLIENT WILL NOT GO TO THE NET. MY DSL IS DYNAMIC ISP DO I NEED TO SELECT OR CONFIGURE SOMETHING IN THE SYGATE OR COMPUTER???

Open a DOS window on the client and see if you can ping 192.168.0.1.
C:\>ping 192.168.0.1
That should be the IP address of the network adapter on the SyGate host PC for the local area network, not the dynamic IP of the adapter used for DSL. While connected to the Internet, try pinging 216.92.56.121. Try
C:\>ping duxcw.com

On each computer try deleting (just back space and retype) and then typing-in the computer name and work group. You do not have to reboot in-between. The workgroup name should be all caps. This is a frequent problem and I don't know what is causing it. I encountered it the other day and reentering the above info fixed it. If that doesn't work, the workaround is to run the NetBEUI protocol in addition to TCP/IP. I am going to find out what causes this problem... Please let us know if the first recommendation works on your computers. Larry

I TRIED THE FIRST ONE. I ERASED (BACSPACED) AND RE-TYPED THE COMPUTER NAME AND THE WORKGROUP ALL IN CAPS. ON THE CLIENT IT WORKED FINE BUT ON THE SERVER AFTER I DID THIS AND HIT OK. THE COMPUTER STARTED TO BUILD A DATABASE (I THINK), THEN I GOT AN ERROR SAYING COULD NOT FIND A FILE: SOURCE 'secur32.dll' DESTINATION C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SECURE32.DLL' WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? I DO NOT HAVE A WINDOWS 98 DISC BECAUSE WINDOWS 98 CAME ON MY COMPUTER WHEN I BOUGHT IT. I ONLY HAVE THE RECOVERY DISC, WHICH WILL ERASE EVERYTHING ON THE HARD DRIVE!!! OH YEAH AND I AM RUNNING NETBUI ALREADY. TOTALLY CONFUSED NOW.

THANKS,
BRIAN

WELL I'M BACK AGAIN! WHAT I AM GOING TO DO IS RE-START MY WHOLE SYSTEM WITH THE RECOVERY DISC. I HAVE TO MANY ERRORS ON THE COMPUTER RIGHT NOW AND TO MUCH CRAP IN THE SYSTEM. BUT I HAVE TO WHAIT FOR A NEW RECOVERY DISC BECAUSE MINE IS DAMMAGED. MY QUESTION IS THIS. I BELIEVE PART OF MY PROBLEM IS MY HUB (LINKSYS ETHERFAST 10/100 5-PORT WORKINGROUP SWITCH MODEL # EZXS55W). IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE DSL COMPATIABLE BUT IT DOES SUPPORT NAT OR PPPoE!!!! I WAS THINKING OF PURCHASING THE Linksys BEFSR41 4-Port Etherfast Cable/DSL Router OR THE Netgear RT311 Internet Access Gateway Router. WHICH ONE WOULD YOU SUGGEST???? THE LINKSYS IS SUPPOSED TO SUPPORT NAT AND PPPoE. MY DSL PROVIDER USES PPPoPE AND DYNAMIC IP. HOWEVER I FOUND SOME NEGATIVE COMMENTS ABOUT THE LINKSYS ROUTER:Warning for PPPoE ADSL users, October 13, 2000
Reviewer: An electronics fan from Boca Raton, FL USA
This router is housed in an attractive stackable case which easily mates with other Linksys networking products. An easy to read array of LEDs gives a clear indication of networking activity on both the LAN and WAN ports.

One initial annoyance is the power transformer. For some reason Linksys chose to not make it a wall wart (good) but did not give it enough cord to reach the floor (bad). So you will end up with the transformer either on your desk or dangling in mid air.

Setup is a breeze with the built-in html configuration interface and quickstart document. Even a novice could get the unit configured within five minutes. Support for things such as DMZ and DHCP is an added bonus.

If your ADSL provider does not use PPPoE you will probably be fine with this unit. Unfortunately, mine uses PPPoE. Linksys is supposed to support PPPoE beginning with firmware version 1.30.

The current firmware version is 1.36 and was released on 10/12/2000. While I applaud Linksys updating their firmware frequently I was not happy waiting for the PPPoE support to be fixed and already returned the unit.

The router would work fine until my ADSL provider would "refresh" my IP address; the linksys unit would then be unable to obtain a new IP. Using the html web interface seemed to debug the problem only seemed to aggravate the situation. Their support page suggested doing the "power dance" by unplugging the router and/or the ADSL modem in varying combinations, which was unsuccessful, time-consuming and aggravating.

I'm sure Linksys will have this fixed in time just be forewarned if you are a PPPoE user.

I AM VERY UNSURE AS WHAT TO BUY ANY AND ALL ADVICE WILL BE VERY HELPFUL!!!!!

THANKS AGAIN,
BRIAN

I donít know what happened. I probably overlooked your post.

All of my books on networking are rather old. You might look at some of the major network manufacturerís sites, such as http://www.cisco.com/public/Training_root.shtml, Microsoft, and Novell, for free and not so free learning materials.

See http://whatis.techtarget.com/WhatIs_Definition_Page/0,4152,212924,00.html.


Sorry, but I really donít have a finite and easy direction I can point you towards. See About Dux. I have been building networks running a computer shop for many years. You just have to do it, talk to others about it, and read read read.

NETGEAR RT314 --- Iím not impressed enough from the sketchy info, picture, and the very high $240.00 price tag on Netgearís web site to get one for a review.
