just reformated my computer after it had lost a virus/malware battle. I'm back to SP1 XP home and I can't connect to the internet. Before I just plugged in and went (when on SP2) but I'm guessing this novelty was only added to later updates. I'm connecting through comcast via a netgear router, but since I'm in an apartment where internet is provided for all users I'm not sure if it is a proxy server or not. At my old complex it was (with the same company) so I'm not sure. Tried punching in the IP manually, tried pinging...nothing.

Mod Edit: Topic moved from XP to more appropriate forum~ TMacK

I'm considering installing SP3 by downloading it from this PC to the one having issues, but it is the IT version, would that make much of a difference?

The network install is the best choice. Burn it to a CD/DVD for future use.

Do you have just the Netgear router in your apartment or do you have a cable modem as well?
