Try manually locating ip address to your laptop
Right click on the local area connection icon and then click on Status, click on the properties this will help you to be able to Change the Local Area Connection Properties, Click on the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) Click the properties button under then click on use this IP address provide the required IP address, Subnet mask and Default gateway and also click on use this DNS server address and then fill the field as necessary after try repairing the Local Area Connection.
There might be a problem w/ your IP address or DNS server, try to open LOCAL AREA NETWORK CONNECTION STATUS in your laptop running xp, click support/details, Then copy the DNS server address and alternative dns server address.
open your vista go to Network Connection/LAN properties, then double click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP, mark obtain ip address automatically, then the lower side Mark USE THE FOLLOWING SEVER ADDRESS then paste the dns server address which you copied from xp laptop. same w/ alternate dns server, and then click OK. DONE. JUST TRY IF ITS HELP FULL.
Go to Start/settings/Network Connections/Wireless connections Click on Properties Under the General Tab scroll in window to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Next click on Properties Make sure that both buttons (IP / DNS) are set to obtain automatically
what connection you use? a dial up or broadband acces? if u use a broadband acces (maybe from office) u need to fill in gateway and preffered dns that your office use.( u can see the number from another computer) You can find the setting in : control panel--->Networks Connection--->Local Area Network - Right click on Local Area Network, choose 'Properties' ----> Internet Protocols(TCP/IP)
You most likley have your Local Area Connection TCP/IP settings incorrect.
In windows XP go to > Control Panel > Network Connections > RIGHT CLICK on Local Area Connection > Properties > Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Then properties > Make sure that "Obtain an IP address Automaticly" and "Obtain DNS server automatticly" are checked. Once you make the change, Reboot and you should be good to go.
First off, the 1394 connection is a firewire connetion. Firewire is a less popular and slower alternative to USB 2.0 connections. Disregard that in respect to your internet connection.
Now in regards to your desktop internet connection....
-Go to the control panel, select network connections, then local area connection.
-Right click and select properties
-Under the general tab scroll down to Internet protocal (tcp/ip)
Make sure the settings are set to automatically obtain an IP address. If they are and still are not working you can try to manually assign an IP address yourself.
The laptops ip address might be something like 192.168.1.2
so whatever your laptop ip address is make the desktop 1 number higher in the last field (192.168.1.3 for example). Don't change any numbers other than the last field.
You can find out the other information like subnet mask and default gateway by using the laptop. On the laptop go to the start menu, hit run. Then type in cmd, this will bring up a dos prompt. Then finally type IPCONFIG .
Listed will be the laptops active internet connections and it's IP addresses. Copy over the subnet mask IP address and the default gateway address into the desktop and like in the previous step just manually assign the desktop a different IP address 1 number higher than the laptop.
If the dns server's address isn't listed on the laptop a quick call to your dsl provider will solve that question.
