    Got IP but no Internet or network

    I have just reinstalled Windows XP Home on a crashed gateway. Everything seems fine. EXCEPT i cannot connect in any way to the network. The computer is accepting a router assigned IP address. The icon indicates a connection and the lights on the on board nic are active. However I cannot see the network (same settings are working on another machine) nor can I connect to the internet.

    Is there a service that may have been disabled that could cause this?

    Re: Got IP but no Internet or network

    I can't find the article at the moment, but I distinctly remember that there was a fix in Windows XP SP1 that resolved a problem like this. If you restore a backup then the network doesn't work.

    Do you have SP1 installed?

    No SP1 and can't download it obviously but I do have the Microsoft Security update disk. I will add that and see what happens. Thanks.

    Re: Got IP but no Internet or network

    red in my first post. It is a HP Pvavillion 513x. The website has no inof on LAN problems.

    I installed SP1 from the disk and went into reboot hell. Looping and rebooting before getting to anything I could do. Reinstalled from the XP home disk and am right back with seeming full working but NO network action.
    I did the fixes on from the link. ...nada.
    I have a restore disk coming from the HP which may do the trick. I can at least back all the files up to CD before I have at it.
