limited or no connectivity
so weird problem. my dads computer (Dell xps 1400) windows XP. suddenly went into the limited or no connectivity deal. it was a wired connection. the laptops in the house work, on wireless. i have tried EVERYTHING. resetting the modem, new ethernet chords, bought a completely new NIC card plugged it in, and it is still doing the same exact thing. tried doing all suggestions by typing the CMD under run and using the ipconfig/reset etc. i have honestly exausted every known alley i can think of and everything i have found online through hours of searching. if anyone has any other suggestions or help please it is immensely appreciated.
