Question about HP PAVILION A6230N DESKTOP PC
I have a HP Pavilion pc when I hook the network cable to the router it keeps saying Acquiring Network Address but nothing happens.The network card is installed on the motherboard not PCI slot. The drivers have been uninstalled and reinstalled still same message. I did get it to work when I used the ip address asigned to my wireless laptop but when I restarted the computer after upgrading from XP service pack 2 to service pack 3 and got the message again. Any suggestions as to what to do so that system will acquire its own ip address.
You will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.
