I upgraded computer motherboard and CPU. Had to re-install XP but not a fresh install. All programs and files are intact.(I think)I cannot connect to the internet, evidently there is no ip address for my computer. I have a laptop running wireless to the same router that connects to my desktop computer. I can connect with the laptop but not the desktop. Help!!!
Are you using a NIC or a wireless connection? Did you install the drivers for the NIC or wireless card? What does "ipconfig /all" show?
I have a broadband connection through a wireless router. The upgraded computer is hard wired to the router. I did not install any drivers for the upgraded computer. ipconfig shows C:\documents and settings\richard > nothing else. What is NIC?
