No Internet connectivity on new install of OEM XP Pro
Posted on 2007-10-02
I just purchased a new OEM copy of Windows XP Pro from ZipZoomFly.com and found after the installation was complete that the system does not recognize my broadband (cable modem) connection and I am unable to gain Internet connectivity. A call to Microsoft informed me that no support was available for OEM versions of XP Pro except at a price. A rather high price. They referred me back to ZipZoomFly who informed me they had no support technicians.
The install was made on a freshly formatted hard drive and completed with no errors, but here I sit, stuck with no connectivity. Any help this community can extend on this issue would be very much appreciated.
