    I got this icon that just says "acquring network address" all the time. Thing is, I access my network just fine. It makes no sense whatsoever. Is this something that XP SP 2 has done?

    Have you just recently installed SP2?

    Because yes, I think it is from that

    The MS website says about it...

    • Acquiring network address

    An IP address configuration is being obtained using the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
