I am at school at a LAN. The school's instructions for hooking up to the internet is just to go to the network properties and have everything automatically configured, so you don't need to enter in any DNS or IP Addresses. I did that and and have it checked on automatically detect in internet options and it didn't work. I brought it to the tech guys, they said it might be a virus. So, I did a virus scan and removal, there were no viruses. Checked it again, nothing. I restored my laptop to default and tried everything again, and virus removal. Nothing works. I thought it might be the jack or cable, so I went to a neighbor's room whose internet does work, and mine still doesn't work. I guess it's my laptop. The ethernet adapter is installed and drivers are updated, so I don't know what to do. I am running Windows XP home, and it is a Dell Inspiron 5150.

did your laptop get on the internet at home thru your NIC? you can test your NIC with an internal loop, by pinging it in DOS. ping 10.0.0.1

To Ping, click the start button, then click RUN, then when the window pops up, type in CMD. When the Command Prompt pops up, then type ping 10.0.0.1 Your results look should something like this.

Destination host unreachable, sent 4, reached 0.

So what does that mean? What is wrong?
