Alright smart guys, here's one for you. I'm running Windows XP pro. I have a cable modem that just began experiencing connection issues. The ISP checked my connection to the network, good. Checked all LAN cables, good. Installed a new ethernet NIC and it has been recognized by the BIOS and is lit up and operational, good.
Installed the brand new NIC driver from the CD, good.
However, I still cant get an IP address to generate when I launch IE, still getting 0.0.0.0.0.
Is there a way to check to see if the DHCP process is actually running? The PC says it's enabled...but I still cant get a damn connection !!!!
pulling my few hairs out.
