    I'm currently trying to fix this Win2000 PC, the issue that it's having is that it can't connect to the internet at all.
    When I connect the ethernet cable in, the system tray icon appear, telling me that it connect. However, when I open a browser, I can't navigate to any site at all.
    To trouble shoot, I open command prompt, and do a loop back ping, and I received the replies, so I know that the NIC isn't bad.
    I have a wireless laptop that I can connect to my wireless router, and is working fine, so the router is not bad either.
    I then use ipconfig /all and the result is that I have only the autoIPs, no DNS, and no gateway address.
    The TPC/IP protocol setting for this PC is all set to automatically optain address.
    I check device manager for device conflict, none. (shouldn't be this anyway)
    I have turn off both PC and modem + router and let power cycle them.

    What are my next options?
    ipconfig /flushdns ??????:mad::confused:
