Cannot ping external websites
Posted on 2012-03-21
I'm working on a clients WinXP Sp3 computer. The wirelesss adapter has been having difficulty connecting to wireless signals - it would say it was connected, but wouldn't get an IP address. I have reset, re-installed, delete profiles etc multiple times with no luck. Tried connecting to other wireless networks too that system hadn't previously connected too.
I did a netshell int ip reset command and after restart the wireless connects fine, gets ip address from gateway, but cannot access the internet. I can ping local machines and the gateway, but no external sites by name or ip address. Get error "Destination host unreachable". The firewall will also not enable - I get error "Firewall cannot be started due to ICS service", so I've tried the sharedaccess.reg repair.
Gotta run, so can't give more details yet.
