Page cannot be displayed - Can't get Internet connection
Posted on 2004-04-21
I have an IBM T30 laptop that I just upgraded on a new drive from Win 2000 to XP Pro. Everything seemed to go well except for one thing, I can't get an Internet connection. I have a cable modem and I have checked the connections multiple times, changed cables but everytime I click on IE I get "the Page cannot be displayed". Ihen I checked my Network Connection I had a red X saying disabled and I had that lovely X down in my taskbar saying "network cable unplugged", but it wasn't. I changed my link speed to half duplex and that went away, but I still can't connect. I tried to right click the connection and chose "repair", but then I get the message "The following steps of the repair operation failed: Renewing the IP address. " I have compared my settings to my desktop running xp (which connects no problem) and thy are identical. Any suggestions?
