hello I recently reinstalled XP on a new harddrive. Have not been able to connect to the internet. Trying to disable firewall but I cannot find control for firewall in control panel. Tried to execute wscui.cpl, and firewall.cpl in run but was not found. Can someone tell how to troubleshoot what may have gone wrong in the install and also how to get to the controls to the firewall? Thank you. Xandr

Have you tried going to control panel and clicking "Windows Firewall"? It has a button to turn it off there.

Check Device Manager (Start...Run...type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter) Are there any red x's or yellow !'s there? If so, did you install the hardware drivers after the XP installation? If not, then check with the system manufacturer (or the motherboard manufacturer on a custom build) to get the drivers. Let us know the make and model and we can help with locating them.
