Im sure there is a simple solution to this problem.. Here is the run down.. I have formatted and re-installed with this disk before (not on my comp though) and havent had a problem... The disk is the one that came with my computer. I formatted and re-installed windows xp onto my computer. Usually during installation, before restart, it will check for an internet connection automatically. This time however, its like it skipped right through that step. It finishes installing xp with no internet connection check. My brother has used this disk on my comp before to format/re-install with no problem. When it does restart and finish installing xp, I go in to manually configure the connection, I have high speed, (it says its already configured for highspeed) but it still says there is no connection. Ive tried resetting my modem, many times, and router (xbox live). I have tried to connnect just straight through modem with no router.. Still no luck! Very fustrating. I have used the disk before on a dif comp and it checked for internet connection automatically. I am clueless as to why my comp cant recongnize the internet connection. If anyone has any input/suggestions PLEASE let me know. Ive done everything I can think of and Ill try just about anything!! HELP! I want my comp back! Thanks!!!!!
