    Hi!!

    I have three computers networked by router. One of the computers is uanble to get on the net. It can see the other computers, but it cannot recognize an IP address to get on the net.

    Windows Xp. Opened up the network connections. It had two connections and two network bridges (Don't know how that happened!) One of the network bridges is disabled and cannot be enabled. Both of the network connections state they are connected but cannot recognize IP. Tried to repair both, but received error message that unable to recognize IP address.

    Do I need a network bridge? (What is a network bridge anyway) I just used to have one network connection and everything was working fine. I tried to delete some of these and I was unable.

    Any suggestions?


    Thanks in advance!

    Never mind!! I removed the devices through device manager and it detected everything and reconnected. And no network bridges were there.

    I would still like to find out what network bridges are?
