Sorry,their is one more thing I wanted to add, I am using Avast on my dell desktop computer but
still the ethernet cable is working fine on it,but not on the dell laptop.
I hope my question is clear.
I am having problem with a Dell laptop having WinXP Sp3,and when I plug in my ethernet cable into this laptop ,the local area network connection icon in my laptop stays busy geting tcp/ip configuration
but doesnot get it and then it gets a messege of "limited and no connectivity".But this same ethernet cable is working fine on my dell dekstop computer having WinXP. Why am I having problem with this ethernet cable on my laptop?
Could it be an issue of virus or spyware? I have already scanned my laptop using Avast and found no threat.
Can you guys please help me.
