      Are you getting an IP address?

      Click on “Start” | “Run”, and type “CMD”, then hit enter.

      In the Command Window type “ipconfig /all”.

      You should see IP information that looks like this:

      If you don’t get that then you need to find out from your ISP why you cannot pull an IP address from your ISP. If your using a Wireless Router, then maybe try rebooting it.

      If you have just installed Windows XP Service Pack 2, then it may be an issue with your wireless card. Your computer will not be able to obtain an IP address and so in the results of IPCONFIG you will see an automatic IP address which looks like 169.254.xxx.xxx . I have experienced the problem also. Check to see if updated firmware and drivers are available for your card. Type ipconfig /renew in a command prompt to test your connectivity.
