    I have a win xp computer that refuses to complete connecting to the internet via my MIFI2200 Verizon router. This device worked fine until about a week ago.
    The message on screen is:
    “Acquiring network address
    You are currently connected to this network”
    The repair utility fails-indicating it is renewing my IP address- then just hangs with that message on-screen.
    I can get online via dialup on this XP computer.
    I cannot get the XP computer to restore to an earlier date trying all the suggestions in Google to fix that XP problem as well as this wireless one.
    I want to reset the wireless and firewall settings to default XP but can’t find what or how to do that.
    Note- I have a second Computer-Windows 7 that works fine with the MIFI2200 but the firewall and wireless information descriptions are so different that I cannot compare settings between the two computers (I hate the way Win 7 describes critical systems.)
    I am semi-senile age 72 so please be clear when describing where I should clobber the XP with the hammer.

    can we see an ipconfig /all from both PCs - make sure we know which is which when you reply

    also on the XP do you have any third part software or every had in the past any security suite - such as norton, mcafee


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ipconfig /all
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

    We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

    It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

    Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
    to do that:
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
    all the text will be highlighted
    Next
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
    Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

    I get an "ACCESS IS DENIED" on the Windows 7 computer using the >
    I am familiar with DOS and the request (and have saved other DOS info from this PC)
    Give me a day to figure this out.
    Now I need to switch computers and log in dialup to get the non-working Win XP config.
    be right back LOL

    From a Johnwill post

    IP addresses of all zeros are normally caused by one of the following.

    Diagnosis:

    1. DHCP Service not running.
    2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
    3. Bad NIC card drivers.
    4. Defective NIC hardware.

    Resolution:

    1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
    2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, restart (power cycle) the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
    3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
    4. Replace the Network Interface Card.
