When I go to my Command Prompt and try to ping a specific IP Address it wont let me. It just skips to a new DOS line instead. I type Ping and the IP Address over and over and I still get the same results. I type Netstat and have the same exact result. Just a new line.

Help Please!!!

What about other dos commands, do they work? Try some simple commands, like dir (directory) or copy. If those work, the problem is not the command prompt. You can go to M$ and search for command prompt and find about 4 pages of information.

Are you running firewall software? I have the same problem when Norton Firewall is on.

try the same with the tracert command... (e.g., tracert xxx.com). Also, it slips me now, but there is a new (enhanced) ping command new with XP Pro that combines ping with traceroute. :tazz:
