Hi, i recently, and FINALLY installed Service Pack 2 and now, i have something in the bottom right of my screen saying that my connection is 'limited or no connectivity'. I tried to 'Repair' my connection but i get the following error message...

'The following action could not be completed: Renewing IP Address'

'For assistance, contact the person who manages your network'

I don't have a home network. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thankyou.

Have you gone to the windows update site to load any of the other patches/fixes that you might be missing? Or, maybe you don't have a connection at all....

SP2 didn't slow my system down at all...With some P2P apps SP2 may slowdown your downloads. SP2 only allows 10 incoming connections.

What AOL patch was it?
Do you have a link to it for future reference?

I was in an AOL Chat room, and one of the guys in there told me to go to keyword 'XPSP2' and it had a screenshot of the icon that i had, and i just downloaded the patch, restarted and it was all good. And does SP2 only allow 10 incoming connections for security purposes?

Yes, it prevents worms and other viruses from spreading.

In winxp sp2, that is normal. it looks for a lan connection, (ex:router or DHCP connection), that does not include a ppp (dial up) or pppoe (dsl) connection. so, you can have an internet connection with one of the above and still have that error. there is nothing wrong. it is a network service pack in sp2 that looks for a lan connection. don't worry about it unless you have any real issues.
