I have been using my laptop which is a Toshiba with intel pentiumIV having win XP OS, on an internet connection through a linux server firewall and a switch on one LAN, the other has 2hubs it's been working properly on either LAN afew days back.
It's not accessing the internet, yet it can be seen on the network by the other computers which are in the same work group on this LAN and I can access any other computer on the network,tried changing IP configuration properties in vain.
The ethernet card I have in this laptop is intel(R)PRO/100VE.

But then when I use these same settings for another laptop of similar make the connection is fine.
Im puzzled.
Thanks in  advance.
