I have this HP pavillion zv6000 that i reinstalled win xp home edition on. I went to HP website to download all drivers needed for it. However, i cant get internet explorer connection to open. Its connected to internet because it updated all of the antivirus and other programs installed but, i get a message that still tells me. Limited or no connectivity. I went to local connection since i am using an Ethernet connection and checked all properties. Everything looks fine. I know sp2 for xp has had some problems...........what do you suggest??:)

Hi:If you show limited/no connectivity,most probably you do not have an internet connection.
Two things:
Try a stack repair first:
Stack repair for XP and Vista.
Courtesy of Johnwill of the Networking forum.



TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2/SP3.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following netsh commands..

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.

If no joy there,let's see this:
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

make sure your firewall isn't blocking the network connection especially if your using a third party firewall. Ensure that dhcp is enabled. If it continues to be a problem check the modem settings to make sure your actually getting a internet connection.
