hello I recently reinstalled XP on a new harddrive. Have not been able to connect to the internet. Trying to disable firewall but I cannot find control for firewall in control panel. Tried to execute wscui.cpl, and firewall.cpl in run but was not found. Can someone tell how to troubleshoot what may have gone wrong in the install and also how to get to the controls to the firewall? Thank you. Xandr

The XP firewall is unlikely to be the problem, you will need to setup the network most likely to connect to the router (assuming broadband here?)

Also unless you have reloaded all the mothernoard and NIC drivers etc, there may be a lack of connectivity if the Windows default ones don't recognise them.

If I am not mistaken the firewall option didn't come out til sp2. In sp1 you had ICF...
this article should help some - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283673.

If you by chance dont know how to tell which one you have you can go to start - run and in the run box type in winver and click ok. It will tell you there.
