I had a disk crash in a computer I am using. After resolving that the disk was toast I installed an older disk that had been on that computer before I upgraded to a 500gb. I got the system (XP) up and running and was able to recognize all the hardware on the computer since the older disk had already been on that computer.
I just could not get the internet connection to work. The computer use to be on a wifi connection when it had the old disk. I now have a direct Ethernet connect to the modem/router that is provided through my fios connection. I have tried
1. ipconfig /renew
2. repair on the network properties
3. Putting in a new nic, the old one is part of the motherboard
4. replacing the Ethernet cable,
So far no luck. Any suggestions about other avenues to try?
Any help would be appreciated.
