I just installed Windows XP onto my Vista laptop using the guide on this site (many thanks!). I tried setting up an internet connection with Network Setup Wizard, but it doesn't work. I don't know how else to describe it; I setup my network in Wizard, restart my laptop, and my internet connection doesn't connect. I have a wired and a wireless connection, but my laptop only detects the wireless. Even if I have my laptop plugged into a wired connection, it doesn't detect the wired connection at all. And even though it detects my wireless network, it cannot connect to the internet with wireless (even after network setup wizard). It certainly is odd.
So I right clicked my 1934 Net Adapter and clicked repair, but I got this "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot Proceed." I thought that was strange, so I went into cmd prompt and typed "ipconfig". The only thing I got was:
Windows IP Configuration
That's all there was, there wasn't an IP or anything. Is it possible to not have an IP? Is that why my internet is working? Also, my internet works just fine when I'm on my Vista operating system; it doesn't work when I'm on Windows XP operating system.
Laptop: HP Pavillion dv2000, ver. 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
Network: 1934 Connection Adapter
Any help would be greatly appreciated
