    Need Networking Expert!
    Anyone an expert in networking? Here's our dilemma....

    2 (out of 4+ computers) needed to be moved into another room so we purchased 2 long ethernet cables. All was fine until we had to move the same 2 computers back to their original location.

    Now those 2 computers can't connect to the network, JUST those 2.
    Yes, they are connected to the SAME ports as prior. Same cables were used. The cables are not damaged....
    We are stumped!!!
    Any ideas anyone?

    thats crazy, did you make new locations in network prefs when you moved them? have you tried repairing permissions?

    how do you repair permissions? We didn't change anything... we just moved the 2 computers about 20 feet away, then moved them back. Nothing was changed at all.

    Just found out - we had a firewall put in after the move (but the 2 computers never powered up after we moved them back)... those 2 computers never had a static IP address. I think that's the problem. Those 2 computers had floating IP addresses.

    to repair permissions:
    open disk utility, its in utilities inside applications folder, in disk utility, after it says gathering info, click your hard drive name/partition name(probably macintosh hd) in the column on the left, then towards the bottom middle area of disk utility, youll see a few buttons, click the one

    that says repair disk permissions, let it run, when its finished, restart the mac.
