Mainly using my laptop for Photoshop/Web Design(offline test), just so I can practice my Java/HTML/CSS/Web Design and whatnot. Anyways, just formatted the laptop and have installed WinXP Pro. Main computer also has WinXP Pro.
I want to set the laptop up for an easy switch of the Cable internet connection, so that I just have to change the wire from the PC to the Laptop and I can get on. Well it's not working. I've setup the 'Tools > Internet Options > Connections' and selected Never Dial A Connection(like on the PC) and in 'LAN Settings' have Automatically Detect Settings checked(just like on the PC).
Cannot get onto the net with the laptop. Obviously there is something wrong I am doing... but what it is I don't know.
When we got the cable internet 2 months ago, all we did was 'Plug and Play' the modem/cable and we were on the net instantly. I have no clue why it wouldn't be like that on the laptop.
Oh, and the laptop's Network Adapter is an Accton EN2242 Series MiniPCI Fast Ethernet Adapter, properly setup with all up to date drivers. Just letting you guys know. If you require additional info, please let me know.
