Have you tried to do a repair on the Local area connection? right click local area connection> repair

If that does not work try this.

Start> run> type cmd

In the prompt type: ipconfig /all that should show you if you have a connection or not, ip address subnet mask, gateway, dns server, if you are connected through a router and have windows and the router to automatically detect settings, alot of those may be the same.

After that try typing: ipconfig /release

Than once it is completed: ipconfig /renew

If that does not work you may have to run Winsock XP Fix, during the update to SP3 some major settings may have been changed and what winsock fix does is it can "cure a lost connection". It will also check for LSP errors.

Hope this helps :thumbsup:
