hardhittertennis Posted August 8, 2008 Share Posted August 8, 2008 So i recently set up my old rig as an ubuntu server so i could have ftp and all that good stuff, but i wanted it next to my desktop so i could work on it w/o needed vnc if i needed to do something on it. So i bought a 5 port switch for 20 bucks and everything was working just great. Then yesterday my desktop restarted because of updates and then i lost internet just to my desktop. Every other computer in my house worked, including the server. So i shut down my server and rebooted my desktop, and the desktop had internet. I was happy, but then i turned back on my server, and what do you know, no internet connecting to it..... Idk if my router is limiting computer connections or something but i have 7 devices (desktop, server, 2 other desktops, laptop, wii, and xbox 360) but this is just annoying because i dont want to have to wire another cable from my router to my desktop area just to have my server up.
