I have 2 laptops at the moment, one has connected through the router into the cable internet perfectly fine, the other, when I plug it in, comes up with Limited or no Connectivity. What issues should I be looking at to rectify this problem.

Both are running XP, this one is XP Home, the other Pro, both have service pack 2 installed.

Is there something I'm missing in all of this? What information do I need to give you to work through this?????

More information needed. When you say that one computer connects fine through the router, what is that computer's IP address? If it begins with anything other than 10.?.?.?, 172.16.?.?, or 192.168.?.? then please post that it begins with something other than that, you don't want to put that on the forum. Other wise, it should be safe to post as long as it begins with one of the number patterns from above.
