Can anyone tell me what I should do about this problem? My computer
has a Netgear tulip card. From the machine I can ping other boxes
on our network, but they can't ping me. I can also watch traffic
going past when in promiscuous mode.
The link light on the hub (for the socket I'm plugged into) doesn't
turn on. It does (briefly) if I ping something, but not otherwise.
For the other machines, including another with the same network card, the
light is constantly on.
We just ran a cable tester over the blue cable and it seems fine. Is
there anyone out there that has seen this before?
