I HAVE TCP/IP CONFIGURED ON EACH NIC CARD(2 ON MY HOST) AND TCP/IP ON MY CLIENT(PC). I cannot ping from my client to my host or vis versa?? I have client for micrsoft networks selected on all cards. CANNOT PING AT EACH OTHER?? I THINK MY NIC CARD ON MY CLIENT IS OFF.

Most NICs and hubs have Link LEDs. Are they on solid? Larry

The Link/Activity LED should be on most of the time and flicker when the PC is trying to send something. If the LINK LED is solid that indicates the cable is wired correctly, but the cable could still be faulty at Ethernet frequencies. The 100/10 LED should be solid all of the time, indicating that the cable and adapters are capable of 100 MHz operation. Flickering may indicate a marginal cable. Are you using commercially made or custom cables? Suggest running the diagnostics on the floppy that came with the NICs. Donít worry if the loopback test fails. You donít have a loopback adapter installed. Larry
