In my sys tray it shows a standard XP Network logo with an exclaimation. When I click it says I have limitted or no connectivity. I've tried to e-net cards, same situation. Repair only says "your Ip cannot be renewed". Tangentally the XP updates for "VIA Rhine II fast ethernet adapter" (my onboard enet) won't install correctly. ANyhelp is much appreciated. Thanks

Sounds like it may be a problem with your ISP.

Are you using dial-up or broadband?

If broadband, call your ISP and they will walk you through the process to reestablish your IP.

Your ethernet adapter is probably what you use to connect to a cable or dsl modem therefore if the drivers won't install your connection will malfunction.

Try deleting it with the device manager and rebooting, letting Windows reinstall it.

This is a Microsoft problem, I think. The fix for it is to update the driver manually. I've done a bunch of 'em and it works. Once you get back online, go to Windows Updates and let it scan, then pick hardware updates from the left side of the window, and you should see the ethernet adapter in there. Just download and install it and the looping problem should go away.
