the 'new' system is a fresh install of windows xp professional. i am gradually installing my applications. this has been connected to the network/internet previously. i had planned to install the remining apps yesterday, but, for no known reason, i cannot connect to the internet or network. i have checked out all connections and hardware including pinging the router from a command prompt. all hardware/connections are in order.
i would appreciate it if someone would help me with advice on how to fix this computer's network configuration. i'm not sure what proceedures to follow, and i'd like very much to save this installation of xp because i have so much time already invested in it. when i open a browser i cannot connect. when i attempt to connect to other computers on the network, no go. start/settings/network/network connection gives me a lan or high speed internet enabled.
thank you. much appreciated.
