Rebuilt XP not connecting to domain

By mr.sweetchuck ·
I'm after rebuilding a laptop, reinstalling XP SP2 on the machine and I'm now trying to reconnect the machine to the domain. However every time I try to reconnect, it fails and gives a error, (see below.) I tried to verify the laptops configuration using ip config, but it doesn't print anything re. Ip address, subnet mask, etc. This is clearly wrong, it should give an ip address, etc. Additionally, the laptop cannot ping the dc, (destination host unreachable.)

How do I resolve this?

no dns servers configured for local system

Re: Rebuilt XP not connecting to domain

Make sure that the "DHCP. Acquire an IP Address Automatically from a DHCP Server" is checked so that the "ip" address can be picked up from your "ISP". I hope this helps you. Please post back if you have more problems.

Do you mean...

Do you mean going into Network connections and reconfiguring there? Currently, when you go to network connections, they aren't any listed LAN connections. How do you configure a standard connection from new?

So far I've been trying to set up the connection by going to the Computer Name tab in System Properties and connecting from there. Clearly I've missed something.

Any suggestions?

No Network Adaptor listed?

How about in Device Manager? Perhaps you still need to install the NIC drivers?

NIC Drivers....

I was thinking that it maybe a driver issue. Where would I find the drivers? And how would I determine which are needed?

Manufacturer's Site

Do a Google search for the support site of the manufacturer ex; toshiba support. Go there and lookup any drivers and software downloads. Sometimes there will be more than one adaptor listed so you may need to try a few.
