Hi Guys
There is a problem, I try to connect to broadband using a network cable, and it never picks up any IP Address and always says the limited connectivity icon, but yet I connect fine on Wireless Internet.

Then I always get a error message at start up saying a error with the Generic Host Process and it says something about IP Address.


HELP!

Please and Thank You



Andy :thumbsup:

It sounds like you need to make a new connection to connect to your router using the ethernet cable.

Which Windows op sys do you have?

If you have access to the router try restarting it.

Thanks for your response.
The only thing is that my wireless connection is not causing the problem, it when I plug in a network (ethernet) cable, then it doesn't pick up a IP Address, and this is the first time this has happened.
(P.S. I tryed disabling my Mcafee Personal Plus Firewall)
My OS is Windows XP
