  1. I have no internet conncetion with windows XP. Everything looks like it is working, internet and network settings are good.

    I went into the command prompt and used ipconfig /all

    It gives me an IP address, we are using WOW cable connection and I have a VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter...

    It says....

    Ethernet adapter Network Connect Adapter:

    Media State: Media disconnected

    does this mean my ethernet card is bad?
    I then cannot do any ipconfig /release or ipconfig /renew because it is disconnected.

    I am very much an amatuer and was just trying everything I found in the forums.

    thanks in advance for the help!!!

    Ok, I see now that there are two line items. The Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection is the VIA Rhine II, it works fine.

    When I run network diagnostics is fails with DNSServer Search Order and

    If I try to ping these it does fail.
