Huh? You showed an ipconfig with no ethernet connection and a wireless that may possibly (but I doubt it) be connected to something, but with no default gateway it will only find devices on the 192.168.0.x LAN. Are you trying to find a server on that LAN?

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected

Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller

Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-0B-DB-A2-F7-AD
What this means is that there is no physical connectivity. So the issue will typically be either 1) the port on the computer is bad, 2) the cable is bad, or 3) the port on the modem / router / other device you are connected to is bad. Try a new, known good cable to test between the laptop and the device you are connecting to. Also, what are you trying to connect to with this laptop? Are you also using a dock with this laptop?

Since this is a laptop, are you using your laptop's wireless connection as a connection for other machines to connect to? If not, then you should edit that connection to be DHCP and you can at least get online that way... unless there is a reason it has a static IP?

Brand and model of gateway or router in use? You have to either have a modem/router combo, called a gateway or a router because 3 computers can not connect to a modem. A modem allows 1 connection.

Have you powered down the gateway or router so all the devices get a new IP?

Also don't fire up Internet Explorer. The computer is from 2004 so probably includes a version of IE that no longer works. The highest version that could be installed in XP is v 8.
IE 11 will be supported on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 until next year

On one of the working computers you need to download a browser that is supported on XP; there aren't many of them. MyPal looked good but he has stopped development.

Our XP computers do not go on the internet. We have an old printer hooked up to the one XP computer and we use it to print labels.

do you know other browser that may work ?
My Pal is the only working browser for XP.
Truthfully, I would not plan to surf on an XP computer because it has not been patched in more than 7 years. April 8, 2014.
