Was this an upgrade from XP Home by any chance?

XP Home has a limit of 5, which is why I ask....

Dont see any other reason why you arent getting the full 10 though....

perhaps a corrupt tcpip.sys? or wrong version of it?

Hi John - Thanks for the reply - This system was not an upgrade, I bought it with XP Pro - How could I check the TCPIP.sys?

System File Checker....

start>run>sfc /purgecache

You will need the CD for it....

Also, check the Version of the file....
