Hi,

I have two hard drives: C: Windows XP Pro; D: Windows Vista Ultimate.
Internet works fine in Vista. However, when i go into XP, the connection icon shows up and is working, however it is not sending any anything only receiving. When i click on the internet it does not work. I also get a message saying the windows Firewall is not on. When i try to start it, it says error 127: cannot be started.
I tried starting the service but get the same thing. i have a feeling that the internet is not working due to the firewall, but i may be wrong.

In my connection properties, the ip and dns are set to obtain automatically, however, it is not finding any ip address. I sont understand as this is only happening in XP but works fine i Vista?

Any ideas / suggestions

Thanks in advance.

Try to reset the IP address. Go to Start then Run. Type in cmd and press enter. At the commmand line type in ipconfig /release and press enter. When the prompt comes back up type in ipconfig /renew and press enter.
Now try to access the internet.

NO, I could not say. It is fairly common though.
