it wouldn't detect you have an illegal copy of windows just by connecting to the internet.

What kind of connection have you got?

If its a modem, check to see if your modem is 'speaking' to your computer. Do this by going to My computer (right click it) properties/device manager/modem (right click it)/diagnostics and click the 'query modem button. If not, reinstall it, if so check your firewall is not blocking its connection.

If its a server or cable connection (along that line), you mentioned that you configured it already. Double check them and make sure that your firewall settings are accepting the connection. I had a similar problem once.

By the way, as mentioned by others before, all computers react differently to the SP's, so it all depends on the computer.

And also accidently or purposely using an illegal copy of windows will not affect the performance of a modem. The only things that such a copy will do, is that all capabilities may not be there and performance may not be there either.

Is it hardwired or wireless. Because that mesage is a default message from a wireless computer. That switch you gave is not wireless.
