Installed new HDD, mainboard, processer, and video board. After initial
start, and loaded new XP home w/SP2, everything was working great. On-line
through router hooked to cable modem. 2 other cpu's hooked to router all
running happy. Decided to put the new computer in the work group with the
others for printer sharing. everything seemed ok then i lost my internet
connection. the network connections says "limited connectivity" try to repair
and it won't acquire IP. What's strange is that i can see the icons of the
other computers in the work group and the new cpu shows up on the other 2. If
i reset the router, it comes back for a short time then goes away?

Hi John,

I am having similar trouble with my home network setup.
I am networking two PC's to use internet connection sharing and I get the
same message
"Limited or no connectivity".
You might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources. This
problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the
computer.

I, too am having these problems, no problems for over a year, both computers
on xp, laptop accessing through pc. Did a complete re-install on the
laptop, reconnected to the pc, the same way as I did before. It worked for
a couple of days then I started getting the same error messages as the
previous two posts. I have re-done the network connection and no joy. I
have no idea why. Is there anyone that could please give me some ideas as
to what else to check, my daughter is having withdrawals with her laptop not
connected.

Thank you in advance

Michelle
