Hello all, I am running windows xp on my home computer and i was connected to the internet one night and the next day my connection was gone. Under my LAN it states acquiring network address and is showing my ip address as all zeros. I have dsl service and an external modem through verizon. I have spent countless hours on the phone with verizon and dell and cannot get any help. Everything is connected correctly but I just don't know how to get it to read that ip so that I can get online again. It is a pain paying for an internet service that I cannot use. I am not very computer literate but I have tried a few things that I have read online form work. Is there anyone out ther who can walk me through trying something else?? Thanks in advance for your responses!
