network won’t assign address to NICLocked
Have a peer to peer network (with internet access via router)that is working fine…except have one system with clean install of WinXP Home that I can’t get to see network because address is not being assigned.
XP error messages … 1. “limited or no connectivity” , then 2. “network did not assign address. . .”
Have reinstalled drivers, changed NICs, tried Network Setup Wizard too many times to count.
System will surf net (through router) without a hitch…but can’t get it talk with the network itself.
Is this an SP2 problem? I’ve seen comments about SP2 breaking networks but never had any trouble before.
For interest sake the other systems in network (9 systems running xp and win98 SE) work fine.
What basic step did I miss?
