I have been running windows XP for about a month now and everything has been working fine. I just restarted my computer after everything was working correctly and when it started back up I was unable to connect to the internet or any computers on my network. It says when I highlight over my networking icon that I have Limited or No Connectivity. Everything was working fine till I restarted my computer... I hate when this happens!

Check the cables, that message can be caused by the failure to find a DHCP server, which happens when someone kicks the plug out. :)

I just checked both the cables... everything is plugged in. I reconnected them and the same message appears. Like I said... this appeared after I just restarted, I think it's a software change from a window's update or something, but anything you have to offer is great. =)

You didn't happen to install service pack 2 for XP did you? That adds firewall software, and turns it on by default. That could be your problem. I haven't had to play with that yet, so don't know how to get to the config or turn the firewall off. I'm sure there are people who have, google around for it if this sounds like a possible cause to your problem.
