I'm new, from NZL, Hi all, Basic Win Network Prob...

Got a basic Peer to peer network, three PC's, XP Pro,Win 2K and XP Home-all connected, have adsl/router internet connection.

Problem is that there is no internet connection on the XP Home edition PC.
Use to go, messed around with IP setting etc.. and now no go!$@^#&$
Have tried alsmost everything- HELP.

1. Have replaced NIC driver-no go
2. Tried another NIC -no go
3. Can access files on other PC's, though initially slow to access it. 10/100. Is connected on the network-running at 100mps.
4. Turned off firewall-still no go.
5. Cant access router settings via browser- IE 6.0
6. Tried Different browser-forgot name-still no go.
7. Tried reinstalling TCP/IP- no go.
8. Tried messing with IP and DNS settings-no go.

Guys short of reinstalling O/S is there anything I've left out.

Is your adsl router's IP address showing as your default gateway on the PC

What firewall has been disabled, a store bought one or the Microsoft firewall

If there is more than 1 nic in the computer, disable all the others

have a look at the following MS artical to see if your winsock is corupted

Thanks for the replyu, finnally was able to fix it by chance.
Mcafee Firewall was disabled.
So i uninstalled it alltogether- BINGO!!!
Am trying CA antivirus/firewall software- less load of the system resources.
Thanks for the Tip!
