Hi, I just bought a new ASUS laptop but it wouldn't connect to internet via ethernet cable. Internet works fine on my other XP laptop but not on this one. I tried troubleshooting and this is the message I get: "local area connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration". I tried rebooting, disabling/enabling network adapters and other things i read online but nothing seems to fix the problem. Please help this is really frustrating. Thanks.
