  1. Running WinXP. I get a good subnet mask and IP address, can ping my default gateway but cannot access the internet. Have been able to successfully get out to the internet through the router on this computer in the past (months ago). Don't know of any changes that were made to the computer before internet connectivity was lost. A different computer running Win2K that is connecting through the same router is able to access the internet. Any ideas?
    Thanks,

    Welcome to TechSpot
    Try swapping the ethernet cable, try another port on the router.
    Try to ping the XP from the W2K.
