I have an update to this.
I ended up re-configuring Windows XP. I got everything running good and was able to get an internet connection. I did this from my home, hooked up to my cable modem. I had no problems connecting to the Internet. After I installed everything and verified it had Internet access, I shut it down and turned it off so I could take the computer back to its owner. Once I hooked it back up to the owner's cable modem and turned it on, there was no Internet connection again. I think this may be a problem with the cable modem. We have the same cable company, so I'm not sure why it worked on mine, but will not work on the owner's. Does anyone else think it may be the modem? The cable company told the computer's owner that they see a good connection and that it is the computer that has the problem.
Any ideas? Or can you verify that it most likely is the cable modem? Thanks.
