I have been successfully running Windows XP, Service Pack 2, for a long time, without any problems connecting to my router, to the cable modem and to my Internet Service Provider. Then, for some unknown reason I received the Limited or No Connectivity message. I've tried a number of things to no avail: ipconfig /release and /renew, uninstalling and reinstalling the network driver on my built-in adapter, installing a PCI network adapter, recycling my router, changing CAT 5 cables and running WinsockXPFix. I'm still left with the Limited or No Conncectivity message and no connectivity to the Internet.
I have 3 desktop computers in my home as well as a laptop and I have switched ports between the various computers with no change in results. The same computer still cannot connect to the Internet while the other computers are fine. I can plug the CAT 5 cable into my laptop and the connection works just fine. When I plug the CAT 5 into the offending desktop I still get the Limited or No Connectivity message.
I could definitely use your help. Thank you.
