    Hi,
    I'm a student and on returning to my house back from the summer for some reason the wireless we have does not seem to work on my desktop. My desktop was completely unplugged over the summer and now all i get is limited or no connection. I have tried hard-wire LAN as well as my wireless. i have read through a few of the older threads and have tried many of the solutions suggested by them such as:

    Checking IP settings to make sure that they are all to allow all etc,
    Using the Repair function, (when i do this it says that it can't refresh IP)
    netsh int ip reset reset.log in the CMD,

    It is a windows XP 1.8 AMD 2gig ram desktop running on a netgear wireless router, i know there is nothing wrong with the router etc as my two other flat m8s have the internet working fine. So it is something wrong with my PC

    I know it should work as it did last year.

    Any Help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, Tom Hilton

    I saw on another thread that they were asked for a ipconfig /all so i did that as well. hope it gives some information on how to fix it.

    Thanks,

    There is no evidence of any ethernet adapter in that ipconfig. Does the ethernet adapter show as OK in Device Manager? Does the ethernet connection show as enabled in Network Connections? Does the ethernet LED light when you connect the cable?

    For the wireless disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you should be able to re-enable encryption and reconnect.
