tcp/ip

By johnyboy1 ·
Hi,

Since upgrading from XP Home to XP Professional, which I did so I could connect to my College network, the tcp/ip on my laptop doesn't work and my Administrator is suggesting I rebuild my laptop, which I consider to be a dire option.

Whilst my laptop can apparently 'connect' via wireless to other networks Explorer works as if it's offline. It can be pinged, on occasion but can't ping out to the College server.

Any advice including cheaper and less dramatic options out there?

Thanks, John.

First, reinstall the Ethernet Adapter
Check that the Adapter has TCP/IP installed

If that does not work, try resetting TCP/IP with this command at the run box
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

If that fails, go into the registry and (back it up first) **** away Winsock2
reboot, Windows will state that TCPIP is corrupt, reinstall TCP/IP

HI.
ok, first chech in the device manager if the system is detecting your network card correctly if so!
step2:
check the windows firewall if it is on turn it off.

in my network properties look for the local area connection and make shure that it doesnt have a small yellow lock icon. then the firewall is off.

step3:

go and download winsock fix tool

http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html

this to repair your tcp/ip without having to go to the regedit.

let me now if it worked!... good luck,.
