    I have a wireless internet connection at my home on windows xp and recently got a laptop so I wanted to connect it to my desktop with a network or lan or something. So I went into my networks and Internet connections and did view networks but it didn't come up with anything. Then I clicked advanced and messed around with it for a while and eventually my internet connection turned into a network connection and now it won't connect to the internet. I tried to repair it and revert it and stuff but it didn't work, and I didn't have system restore enabled so I can't just make it go back to yesterdays configuration. I need a way to delete the connection just make a new one cause if I use the connection wizard and try to creat a new one it just says I already have one and if I right click on the connection it won't let me delete it or repair it. Please reaply promptly because I really need the internet on my computer.

    Just go into your internet properties and make sure you remove all internet connections if you're going to use a LAN. Go into the LAN settings and make sure that Automatically Detect is turned on. Also, make sure your hardware is hooked up to the machine when you fire it up. Try doing all this, restarting your LPT and see what happens. If you created a new network connection, just remove it by deleting it. If the laptop is new and hasn't yet been on that network, you have to turn off the modem for 5 seconds, turn off the laptop, keep everything plugged into each other, then turn the modem on first then the laptop.

    Hope this helps

    The problem isn't with the laptop its with the old comp. I only had one comp. before this laptop so I didn't need a network. I was trying to connect the old comp. to the new laptop so I could transfer files easily and I messed with the wireless internet connection. The problem is i messed up the wireless internet connection so it was a network connection but the old comp. didn't recognize any networks on the new laptop. It won't let me delete the network connecion though.

    All I had to do is put that windows shouldn't search for the network because the wireless thing I had, had software that searched for it, itself. So I just had to go to the network properties and unclick the use windows to search for the network box, thks fr the help. :)
