I have 3 computers connected via LAN. At one time, I had all 3 successfully connected to the internet with my dial up connection, however, I have one that can no longer browse the internet. The host runs XP Pro, the client that can connect to the net runs ME, but the client running XP Home cannot connect to the internet. I have a good connection to the computer, have no hardware conflicts, have rerun the Network Connection Wizard and attempted to use the repair connection feature, which results in an error that tells me: "The following steps of the repair option failed; renewing the IP address". I've also attempted to release (successfully)and renew the IP address as a Command line, but the renew timed out. I have also assigned a manual IP to the default gateway of 192.168.0.1, which did not help.
ANY SUGGESTIONS????
