I think I can say, but I have a SamKnows/Ofcom BB monitor/tester router installed. (http://www.samknows....roadband/signup) To prevent line testing while we are using the BB all network cables go to it and it detects wireless traffic (You set things up with your router then link to the monitor and change your cables over to it. So as far as I understand that means two cables linking to connected things. All the network cables are about 4/6ft long

 

I have tried the setup bypassing the monitoring router, simply replacing all the cables back to my router sockets, made no difference.

 

I didn't really follow the description, but what I think you should test is to connect the server and 1 of the of client computers to a single switch and try to install. I would keep that SamKnow thing out of the mix while testing - at best it does nothing; at worst it messes it up.

Final try has failed.

I have thrown everything I can think off at it

Changed networking over to the one main router.

V6 is disabled in the controller.

Cat 5e cabling

Rebooted router.

Cleaned Net rebooted ran CCleaner rebooted and ran again.

Downloaded Net and ran update until no more updates.

Ran CCleaner and rebooted,

Disabled firewall on server and PC (also antivirus on PC).

ran install and failed again.

 

Thanks for all help I give up

 

Regards

John

My son says as I can see all the PC/laptops from the server and it from them we will be able to get another backup. So I will see what he can come up with before doing anything else. I may also upgrade to 7 and see if that sorts it but not really hopeful! .

Wait...if the Connector is not installing, how will you get "another" backup?
