Ever since I installed XPs SP2, I've been running into numerous problem, one of which I'm still struggling to solve. Here's what happened:
The first thing I noticed after installed SP2 was that it somehow renamed by Local Area Connection to Local Area Connection 2. I sort of ignored this since my internet connection was working fine until the other day when I couldn't get online. When I went back to Network Connections, I saw that Local Area Connection 2 was back named back to Local Area Connection, expect it was listed under the Network Bridge (yes -- I have a Network Bridge) section instead of under LAN or High-speed Internet where it should be. So, the first thing I did was delete the Network Bridge because I knew that may make TCP/IP act a little goofy. This only fixed half the problem. Although Local Area Connection is now listed where it should be, now my 1394 Connection is renamed as 1394 Connection 2 and Local Area Connection says "Limited or no connectivity." Doing ipconfig /release on the command prompt didn't work either. It said something like DHCP wasn't found or something like that... As a result, still unable to get back online. I've tried the WinsockXP fix also but no luck.
Any ideas anybody?
