Thanks for your reply. I check the event log in XP pro and this is what is log:
Product: Windows Operating system.
Event ID: 1001.
Symbolic Name: Event_Failed_To_Obtain_Lease
Message: Your computer was not assigned an address for the network (by the DHCP server) for the network card with network address %1.
The following error occurred: %2. Your computer will continue to try and obtained an address on its own from the network (DHCP) server.
The DHCP client could not contact the DHCP server.
User Action: No user action is required. the DHCP client will automatically try to contact the server again. If you expect a DHCP address and you still cannot contact the server, verify that the client is on a network that has a DHCP server.
The error is the same as event log in win2000 pro, but unlike win XP pro when the error occur XP IE does not close but win2000 IE does.
As for using a router, yes. the router in use is a Trendnet cable/DSL 4-port firewall router. TW100-BRF114 SPI firewall. Supports: Dynamic IP,
fixed IP, PPPoE and PPTP. Managment: Web browser configuration and remote managemet. Connetcted: 2 desktop and 2 laptops. I am using a cable highspeed (100 Mbps ) with motorola modem.
The problem is only with win2000 whenever I use IE and it happen only after I installed win2000 together with XP. I hope this is more then enough information to help with a solution.
