Hi, I have an XP Pro machine which i've used for a long tome now, and never had any problems with it. And all of a sudden, my internet stopped working. I run IIS on that machine, so I need help very fast. My ISP is Virgin Media, and I use a Belkin 54g router. The machine dual boots with Windows 7 and the internet works on that OS. I have a static IP which is

Intel Celeron D 2.9GHz
nVidia GeForce 6200
Marvell Yukon 88E8001
200 GB HDD
XP Pro / 7 Ultimate

Nope, that didn't work. It shows up as normal in Device Manager, but I can't get a connection on it. It works in Windows 7.

So, presumably if you can address the router's user setup screens ?

And if you go to Command Prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL does the gateway address appear normally ?

Check TCP/IP Properties.

Start, Connect To, Connection, Properties, Scroll Down TCP/IP and highlight, click Properties and check that Obtain DNS and IP address automatically are enabled.

Though I'm not quite sure why you set a fixed IP address.
