Can't access network or internet with new W2K Pro install
Posted on 2004-04-13
I have a networking problem with Windows 2000.
I made a backup of a 500 MHz computer (A) running Windows 2000, for migration to a 1GHz computer (B). Did a fresh install of Windows 2000 on B followed by backup restore. Loaded all necessary drivers for the new Intel board and was able to go online using my home network. Completed updates of Windows and Office.
Took the computer in to the office it will be used in, removed computer A (able to access the LAN and internet). Connected computer B and cannot access LAN or internet.... When I open the LAN connection it only sees itself, but other computers on the network are able to see (but not access) computer B.
Unable to ping either direction.
Ipconfig shows a 169.x.x.x IP address rather than the necessary 192.168.x.x and is unable to renew.
All settings appear to be the same but I must be missing something...
Reconnected A and works well.... B is waiting for the answer to this problem...
