Hi
I have successfully networked two computers via a ADSL router, every thing works (thank god) but for sum reason now the xp professional computer, when booted up does not seem to detect the IP address properly?

It just says invalid ip address 0.0.0.0 in the properties page.

I can get it to recieve one by going into the networking options and clicking repair but as i'm not always gonna be ther and my sister knows nowt bout computers she cant access the net or lan till I get home!

The other computer connected is a xp home which I have had no problems with.

Thanks for any help,
WeZ

Hi whatsupwez,
Place this in a text file (notepad) and save it as fixit.cmd - place a shortcut on the desktop that she can click on:

--------fixit.cmd------
@cmd /c netsh int ip reset > c:\resetlog.txt
----------------------

After messsing around for quite a while I reinstalled windows and after it worked fine so I don't really know why it didn't work in the first place. I can only presume that I had conflicting settings or summt!
