    Can anyone help with a simple problem. I'm not too IE/computer savvy, and my computer was hijacked and crashed. My problem now is that I don't know how to enable dhcp and netbios overtcip for windowx xp. That means that I can't access internet through my host server. Any help would be appreciated

    Start>control panel>network connections>right click on your network adapter, select properties>click on TCP/IP> select properties>obtain Ip automatically, DNS automatically(this will enable for DHCP)>advanced>WINS>(Set NetBIOS here).

    Enabling Netbios over Tcp/Ip should not make a difference to your ISP. You are better off leaving it unchecked for security reasons.

    If you want to network to other computers on your local LAN, you need NETBIOS over TCP/IP. LwdSquashman is correct, it's not needed for a single computer connecting to the Internet.
