Missing default gateway, DNS server

  1. Correct me if I'm wrong

    (Working with old computer, getting it to work)
    I was having problems with re-installing Windows XP and SP1-3 updates, and connecting to internet.and getting DNS errs.
    Went into ipconfig, and had no default gateway

    So, I eventually found my way to windows error reports,doing a search:
    for "setuperr"

    Turns out the "computer name" had errors in it with non-allowed characters.
    Went into Control Panel, clicked on System, did the fix.
    No underlines, etc. allowed

    Looking into setuperr logs is really helpful, dont ya think?
