    Hey guys I'm using 2 computers a desktop computer and a wireless laptop. The
    wireless laptop can connect to the internet while the desktop computer isn't
    connected and it has "limited or no connectivity". The desktop computer
    connects to the router which connects to the modem while the laptop is
    directly connected to the router (wireless).

    I tried doing:

    1) netsh winsock reset
    2) netsh int ip reset reset.log
    3) netsh winsock reset catalog
    4) winsockxpfix software
    5) unplug the modem and the router
    6) I have checked the services

    But stil no luck.. :((
    The os of my desktop computer is winxp/sp3
    When i try to ipconfig/renew it says that "unable to contact your dhcp server.Request timed out."

    This is my ipconfig/all:

    C:\Documents and Settings\ram>ipconfig /all

    post an ipconfig /all of the working PC
    Has the Desktop ever worked ?
    Have you tried a different cable - or tried the cable on the Laptop to see if that works OK and confirm the Cable & LAN connections on router are all OK
    also what firewall do you have enabled - disable the firewall , that maybe blocking

    6) I have checked the services
    make sure these service are running
