    Post Have you ever had this LAN problem?

    Just wondering if anyone has run into this before on their LAN.. This being on a WinME box setup, well, the from->to boxes are both WinME.. I'm trying to move over 3GIG of MP3's from my "HUB" box, which is used for net communications and storage, but I keep getting this error;

    Cannot copy "file name": The specified network resource or device is no longer available

    I've run a ping to the carputer from all of my other boxes and all report 0% packet loss, so I'm not sure what is wrong. This happens some 2 minutes into file transfer, and when I paste them again it works, but then errors on another.

    I'm wondering if it's the on board LAN that may be messing up on the carputer. If so I can install a LAN card and disable the on board one, but I'd like to leave the slot open incase I go with a sound card (instead of the on board).. Any thoughts?

    are you copying hard drive to hard drive? i know i have got that error when i was trying to copy off a badly scratched mp3 cd and that explains for it quiting 2 min. in the transfer. also, you should be able to disablt the on board lan in the control panel->systems part of windows. thats really weird though!

    I've had that problem before and it was the wire in my situation. I used a shorter wire and it seemed to work alright.

    I'm not sure what the max distance should be but if you have more than the limit, you would need a repeater or another hub inline.

    Might want to check on that.

    Believe it or not, there's also a minimum reccommended cable distance... no less than 3 feet.

    I know people who network businesses. There's no such thing as 3' on a 10/100 base t network. Though they look at me funny when I tell them my home network is running 100mbs..

    Far as I recall the limit is 50-60' to the HUB..

    No, the maximum cable length for CAT 5 is 300 feet. I've pulled 275 foot cables here in my building that work great.

    Maybe you should find a different way to copy them over, like Filesync or something else. Maybe we can just blame this one on Micrisift and find a different way to do it....

    Cool

    Sounds like a network card problem, or an intermittant cable. I have seen these symptoms a million times before.

    I don't want to get into a pi$$ing match here, but I work on a 4 Million dollar (hardware value) multi-site network. I know what I'm talking about.
    The three feet comes into play when you have, as an example, a rack-mount server next to a rack-mount switch - You can probably make the connection with only a foot or two of cable, but it's not recommended... I've also found this out the hard way, myself.
    Now. Back on topic. Start with Aaron's recommendations.

    No pi$$ing match here either.. I'm betting on it being the on-board ethernet. I never did truth on board stuff much. On my web server that I built it was loosing packets left and right, so I had a card ethernet put in..

    I have that problem sometimes, too. I blame it on my cheap network card. All networking/internet stuff will quit working and I have to reset. In the middle of transferring big files, everything will die and "the network resource is no longer available"

    It never happens, though, downloading huge files off the internet, which can take MUCH longer than over a network
