local area connection will not send or receive
Posted on 2004-11-29
I just reformated my friends laptop. It's a CTX EXBook 700e series. She was running winme before and I put winxp pro on it. The whole install went fine and everything works fine exept for it not being able to connect to the internet or my network in my house.
When I look at the local area connection, send and receive are both at 0 and never move. The ip address seems to be locked on the 196.x.x.x. If I put a static ip in it still does not work, but it does show the ip and everything else when i look in the local area connection. The ip, gateway, subnet mask, and dns are right because i've set other computer up on the network using the same ones.
Does anyone have any idea on how i can get it to start sending and receiving?
