There are 2 reasons I see this.
1. Drivers. Microsoft doesn't do drivers.
2. Trojan/virus/spwyare damage.
I have a Toshiba Satellite 1800-1400 (2001) Laptop With Windows XP Professional, Celeron 800, 128MB Ram and a 15GB Hard disk.
I am trying to connect it to my home network, which comprises of an 8 Port Switch, A NTL Broadband Modem and my main PC. I am Trying to Add this Laptop, with a Xircom EtherNet CardBus II PCMCIA Adapter, but the connection freezes on the "Aquiring Network Address", and then tells me It has limited or No connectvity, and After a check, It's no connectivity. I also Tried to connect the Laptop Directly to the Modem, but with the Same result, which makes me beleive that there may be a problem with XP rather than the Laptop, Anyone got any Ideas.
