I have reviewed a lot on this topic but nothing has helped me. My hard drive in my laptop crashed so I purchased another one. It when in fine and I used the operating system disc that I got with the computer to reinstall Windows. Now I can't get on the internet with my wireless router.

I have: Windows XP Service Pack 2

I have tried: netsh winsock reset
netsh int ip reset restlog.txt

When I use the ipconfig prompt it just says: Windows IP Configuration

Under my internet connections I only have a 1394 connection.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Kris :)

Sounds like you have no drivers installed for the NIC. Check your device manager and make sure you dont see any yellow !;s or red X's.

I do have yellow question marks with explanations. All these under other devices have them.

Ethernet Controller
Mass Storage Controller
Multimedia Audio Controller
Network Controller
PCI Modem
SM Bus Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

Thanks for any help!

That worked but now it keeps trying to "Acquiring Network Address" so I have searched for those remedies and have been trying some of those but no luck yet. At least I'm getting closer to a solution! Thanks for you help.
