I'm not able to access the internet-have Windows XP. It appears that the problem is that my computer won't renew the ip address. I've tried ipconfig/release - which worked fine, but when I tried ipconfig/renew - nothing happens.
I've done flushdns, reset winsock, checked under administrative tools and services to make sure dns client was enabled-automatic, I've restarted about 18 times, and I'm still getting the 'limited or no connectivity" message, although it can tell me the speed (100 mbps). I'm using a laptop with a Comcast modem with ethernet cable, and I know the connection is good because I've been hooking the same cable up to another laptop(Windows Vista w/IPV6) and it works fine. Does anyone have any ideas on what else I can try? I'm kind of a beginner, and this is probably a stupid question, but could it be my NIC card? or the driver?
