Networking issues in HP Elite® 7100 Microtower PC
Networks link a computer with another one so that data or information can be shared. Earlier networks were very slow and only limited computers could be connected whereas modern day networks are capable of connecting very large numbers of computers and share data between them in a very fast and effective manner. There are two different kinds of networks. One is peer to peer network and the other is client server network. In a client server network, a centralized computer controls all the activities of the member computers within the network and in a peer to peer network, all computers connected within the network are given equal importance or priority. The HP Elite 7100 Microtower PC can be used to connect to any type of network. All the network related components have been tested to compliance so that users would get smooth error free connections. However, there are some issues that can come with the use of networks on your HP Elite 7100 Microtower PC. These issues include complete failure of the system to connect to a network, connection being very slow, errors during connection, frequent disruptions during the connection etc.
- Check connections
- Analyze Ping results
- Check firewall settings
Almost all issues when connecting your HP Elite 7100 Microtower PC with a network are likely to be because of improper connections. HP Elite 7100 Microtower PC users having networking issues are therefore advised to check the network connections. Users must check all the connecting hardware and make sure that the connections are secure. If the connecting hardware is found to be faulty or damaged, it would have to be replaced at the earliest to resolve the issue.
Analyze ping results
The connections within a computer network can be checked in many ways. HP Elite 7100 Microtower PC users facing networking issues are recommended to carry out a ping test. Ping testing is the easiest method to check whether all connections are in proper working order. If the ping testing for HP Elite 7100 Microtower PC did not yield any results, it means that the connections are not in working order and if the ping test did come out with a positive result, the problem is with some other aspect of the network.
Computer operating systems come with pre-installed firewall software. A firewall is a software that blocks all malicious codes from entering the system so as to reduce chances of infection. The firewall on your HP Elite 7100 Microtower PC might be blocking the network and causing issues with the connection. Users having network problems are requested to check the firewall settings and configure them properly so that network is not blocked in anyway.
