    To be precise, Check the make and model of your Network card. PS. Now that you have already lost the driver, you may need to open up the machine to see the make and model.

Phone not showing network connnection

The repair process probably didn't do the trick. Have you tried resetting the TCP/IPstack, applying winsock and/or crypto fixes?

The TCP/IP stack (netshell) can reset manually by simply going back and using the classic command prompt screen.

Hit the Windows Logo Key, if your keyboard has it, and then alternately press the R key.


Simply go to Start -> Run


Type in the given text field: cmd

Press Enter key or click OK/Run.

A black screen with a blinking cursor and some nifty white text should appear (should bring back some memories!). Go ahead and type in the following, EXACT:

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

Go ahead and press the Enter key when your finished typing this out.

It should just execute, and when complete, go ahead and exit out of the command prompt window. Finally, go ahead and if you haven't already, run the winsock fix (it supposedly does the netsh fix in this tool, but we did it just in case!), which can be downloaded on line through a simple google search. Then reboot your machine. See if this does it, if not, try the crypto fix. It usually works to machines that have a hard time updating through MS windows update website, but i've seen this fix work miracles for networking issues.

If all else fails I would try three things...

1) Re-install the LATEST driver for your network card. If nothing happens STILL, pop another one in a PCI expansion slot, and see if this is detected and installed properly by windows XP. It's preferable you use a standard PCI 10/100 Intel PRO LAN card or something by Linksys, since Windows should have stable generic drivers for most of these cards. If you can see the expansion card in network connections as a Local Area Connection, I would say that your integrated LAN MIGHT be defective, but I doubt this.

2) Do a complete OS restore. This means basically to back up all your data that you absolutely need, and perform a full Windows XP installation from scratch. Boot to the CD, make sure you format your hard drive, use the full format if you want to write zeroes to the drive, guaranteeing that all your previous data will be gone, and then reinstall XP through the Windows XP setup screen. Sometimes these windows repair sessions don't do the trick... they copy over usually just the essentials, like DLLs, popular EXE files, etc.

3) Apply or Reinstall Windows XP Service Pack 2. This usually fixes errors such as corrupted Windows Firewall/Security Center, and it may fix your network connections service. IDK which service it is in Windows XP, i think its the Network Connections service? Go ahead and check to see if its running, or if its even there (think administrative tools in control panel).

Still want more help? PM me or just re-post with your progress, and good luck!!

Internet connection setting for Belkin N wirelss modem router

If you can connect to the internet without the connection icon in the system tray, I think its fine. But if you really want to see the blinking icon, go to start>control panel>netweok and internet connection>network connection. There you can see the local area network icon. Right click on it and then properties. A new window will appear, make sure the "show icon in notification area when connected" is checked. Thank you and good day.

How do i build a local area network in windows xp?

On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!
