    Can you connect to the server at all?  Does the Console work?  Can you access the server's shares?  Can you backup a client?  Can you open a RDC?  It seems really bizarre that you can successfully ping both by name and by IP address, but nothing else works.

  • No matter what I try; it gives me an error nad says to check my internet connections. Really weird.

    I was able to get on one time with RDP and it HUNG on the waring page.

    Have you tried rebooting your server (which might require a hard shutdown of your server if you can't connect to it)?  What color is your WHS icon in your system tray?  Is this a pre-built server (i.e. HP or Acer) or did you build it yourself?  How long has it been up and running before this started?

  • Kariya21,

    Thanks for your help. I rebooted the system today and everything booted fine as before. On start-up of the Desktop it gave me an error that somethings was amiss on the last start with a CHOICE of RETRY & SKIP.

    I chose RETRY and the system booted up. Have tried several reboots with no problem.

    I built the system myself and put it on line on 1 Maty 2009.
