    Hey guys, I'm pretty good at troubleshooting computers when it comes to networks and internet, but this has me stumped. I'm working on my father's HP Pavilion desktop. I just reinstalled XP onto it, and I made sure it has all the drivers. Double checked the Device Manager to make sure all the drivers were updated. The problem is that the LAN connection is showing Enabled, Firewalled. It will not show that the LAN is connected though. It won't change even if it's disconnected from the computer. I've disabled the firewall and it still shows as Firewalled. When I try to disable it, a dialog box saying "it is not possble to disconnect at this time. the connection is currently busy with a connect or disconnect operation". When I try to repair the connection it says "the following steps of the repair operation failed: renewing the IP address, refreshing all DHCP leases and re-registering DNS names. Please contact your network administrator or ISP." I've done "ipconfig" in cmd and all the info comes up correct. Did "regsvr32 netshell.dll" "regsvr32 netcfgx.dll" and "regsvr32 netman.dll". They were all successful. I have also tried manually disabling the connection using cmd prompt. That also will not work. Any suggestions on getting this to work guys? Thanks.
