More information required :
1. Is TCP/IP installed on your new PC.
2. How is your network configured.. I am presuming all your PCs connect to your router. In that case are the PCs configured for Static IP or dynamic IP? If dynamic IP then is you new PC configured to get IP address automatically.
3. can you ping your router from the new PC

Ok here what you should do
First lets see how your working/old PC is setup
1. Goto Control Panel --> Network Connections. Here you should see something like "Local Area Connection" with status as "Connected". Right Click this and select Properties. In the windows that pops us select "Internet (TCp/IP)" and choose properties. Here copy down all the options that have been set as this is what you have to setup in your new PC.


2. To check if TCP/IP is installed in your NEW PC goto Control Panel --> Network Connections. Here you should see something like "Local Area Connection" . Right Click this and select Properties. In the windows that pops us ensure that "Internet (TCp/IP)" is ticked. If not tick it and choose install

3. Once you have confirmed that TCP/IP is installed and ticked. Select it and choose Properties. Here ensure that the values set are the same as that in your OLD PC.

4. Now try to ping the Router/Cable Modem.

If it doesnt work then tell me what the settings are in your old PC and we will take it from there

Ok in your old PC go to Command Prompt and type the following:

ipconfig /all

In that you should have the line "Default Gateway" . This is generally the IP address of the Router/Cable Modem. Then from the command prompt fire

ping ip_address

Repeat the ping part in your new PC after connecting the network cable

im so sorry but how do i go to command prompt?

do i have to do this in order to connect?

November 14, 2007 4:05:17 AM

to go to command prompt

Start --> Run

Here type

cmd

This will open the command prompt window.

What were are trying to do is to identify if it is a setup issue or a network issue

lets start again. In your old PC (is it vista or XP) can you give me the output of the following command :

ipconfig /all

Also tell me what is set for the following:

Goto Control Panel --> Network Connections. Here you should see something like "Local Area Connection" with status as "Connected". Right Click this and select Properties. In the windows that pops us select "Internet (TCp/IP)" and choose properties. Here copy down all the options that have been set as this is what you have to setup in your new PC.

In case it is vista use TCP/IPv4

I do not have vista, so this maybe a stupid answer, But doesnt Vista have a "New Connection Wizard" like XP. That would seem the easy place to start.

No problem. In your old PC just give me the output of

ipconfig /all

which you should run from your command prompt. That should give us some of the information we are looking for.
