I did not attempt updating the NIC drivers since I do not want to break comms any further.
I am thinking of acquiring another NIC from another manufacturer, and installing the drivers if necessary and using that NIC.
Actually, the shop that built the server sent an identical NIC that installed on the motherboard, and it could not access the internet either.
Should the IPV4 192.168.1.2 be converted to IPV6 and should I enter it there, or should the IPV6 be different?
I looked at other SBS2011 servers that I manage, and they have static info defined for IPV6.
So, my question is how can I change it to a static address.
The IPV4 address for the server is 192.168.1.2, Mask 255.255.255.0.I cannot remember the NIC manufacturer at the moment.
