Red face How to reset the IP addres of ethernet card in my sony Vaio laptop?
Hi,
I am using windows XP Sp2 .i am trying to connect to the internet through modem using ethernet cable(cat5 crossed). but it shows limited or no connectivity. it is actually showing the ip address as 169.XXX.XXX but the actual Ip address is 10.XX.XXX but the dhcp can't ping this address. i have tried everything but the Ip address stays the same. any suggestions highly appreciated..ThanX

Why are you using a crossover cable from the modem to the machine? From the modem to the machine you just need to use a patch cable.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Do you see a connection light for the NIC on the laptop and the router/switch port when you connect the cable?

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
