    Unable to connect to the internet (Windows XP)

    The computer I am working on is unable to obtain an IP from the router. It only obtains an internal IP. The router and NIC both light up. TCP/IP is set to obtain an IP. DHCP is enabled. When I run Ipconfig /release or /renew, it tells me there is no adapter in a state ready. All other computers on the network are operating correctly. I changed the NIC to a known good one.

    Thanks,

    Re: Unable to connect to the internet (Windows XP)

    After two years, I don't remember why I did this - whether I had a problem or not. Even though I am required by my Linksys router to include the DNS server IP numbers from my ISP, I also included those two IP nums in the TCP/IP configuration of this XP Pro computer. In spite of using DHCP, I wonder if including the two DNS numbers would help your situation?

    Thanks for reply. I just went ahead and put a spare drive in the system and did a data dump. I then reloaded XP from scratch. All is well now.
