hi this is my first time asking about a problem

i have a compaq presario 5004US that i just had aquired and i installed windows xp professional on it i had no problems with it until i decided to connect it to the internet. when i boot it up everything starts up just fine until i get to the internet connection. it will try to connect but it will say that my connection is either limited or there is no conection. i disabled the windows firewall but it seemed to have no effect. i have an older gateway that i'm using now and the connection is fine. my internet service provider is Comast High Speed Internet. is there anything that could be causing this?

can anybody help me?!

THANKS!! Tom Russell

What type of connection do you have ? Wired or WIreless? What type of card, PCMCIA, USB, Onboard? What router are you using and what type of modem?

Shut down the computer
Unplug power from the modem for ~2 minutes
Plug the modem back in and wait for all the lights to
do their thing.
Boot the computer back up.
You should have a new IP now.

Try to renew your NIC infomation. Do the following.

Start>Run>cmd>ipconfig /release
When it comes back to the prompt type ipconfig /renew
