Internet Problems with SP2

By rmhughes0711 ·
I installed SP2 on my XP desktop and lost my ability to connect to the Internet. My other SP2 systems work fine. Why is this one acting up.

I connect to a Linksys router which seems to be working with my other PC's. The only common factor is SP2 on this one PC.

What should I do?

Try disabling Windows firewall and see if you can connect. May need to allow router IP address and DNS addresses access in firewall.

I had a similar problem today. It turned out that a proxy server had been set from a previous dial up connection. Don't ask me how, but unticking I use a proxy in the LAN settings fixed it.
