Evening Mates,
I would like some help please. I just inherited a computer from work, it's an HP Vectra xe 310. I'm trying to connect it to my cable modem but I'm receiving an error message stating 'little or no connectivity'. The connection status is showing as connected and it's sending 'packets' but not receiving any info.

I'm assuming the computer is thinking it's still connected to a network server and I don't know how to change this.

Can someone please walk me through this.

Thanks.

Use the "new connection wizard" accessed by clicking on start>settings>network connections

It should walk you right through it.

Let us know.

I think in XP it is Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections under "Pick a Task" choose Set up or change your internet connection.

Hello, I think that the first thing to do is find out the system spec's - she inherited the computer from work so does anybody know what OS before starting to give out advice that might not work. Please give us the proper info like OS, processor type, Ram, etc so we can better help you, it will save a lot of time.

I think assuming XP on this machine is fair, as this thread is posted in the XP forum. I guess I don't know what you are getting at.

I would suggest that prior to connecting to your cable modem, that everything is turned off. There is a proper sequence when starting up. This allows each device to acquire the connection in order. First the cable modem is turned on, wait till it does self check and stabilizes, be fore moving to next device. Next is router or hub (if you have one), again wait till it stabilizes, before moving on. Then lastly your computer.

I'm receiving an error message stating 'little or no connectivity'.

Gives me a hint that the modem is not seeing the Vectra's MAC address.

If you still have the same problem after the start up I have outlined. Then try the "new connection wizard" mentioned above.
