Network not working after DHCP assigned IP address (XP)
Posted on 2003-11-16
I've just got a new PC up and running with Windows XP and I'm trying to get the network working. Currently we have a home network of three PCs connected to a Netgear router which in turn connects to a cable modem and then my ISP.
The three PCs all work find on the network but this fourth one won't. The problem is, it manages to contact the DHCP server and get assigned an IP address ok, which is valid and all the settings are correct. However once it's got its IP address, networking just doesn't work. I can't even ping to or from the machine to the router or any other PC.
I checked the network status, and it's sent packets, but not recieved any...
Any ideas? I can post any ipconfig stuff if necessary. I've tried a static IP address too, still nothing.
