Hello, my friend is having this problem connecting to the internet with a laptop that used to belong to a college and apparently the configuration on it hasnt been wiped. I tried fixing it for him a few days ago, but had no luck. It's connected to a home network through a linksys router (hard-wired). I made sure that the connection was obtaining its ip via DHCP and I also tried repairing the connection. It still didn't work. My question is, would there be any policies set on the laptop that could prevent it from obtaining network access outside its campus environment and where can I check for them and of course, how can I fix them? Its a fairly old laptop (5 years or so), with XP pro installed. Btw, the other PC on the network can connect to the internet. Thanks for the help, I appreciate it!
