Hi Poonamhe,

If your home network is a typical network with a basic consumer router and PCs you'll require a new router or firmware update, as most routers currently only support IPv4. Installation of protocols already built into Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X. Windows Vista and Mac OS X already support IPv6 natively and Windows XP only requires the addition of an IPv6 protocol driver. It's possible to run IPv4 and IPv6 on the same systems on the same network without problems.

Because TCP/IP operates lower layers of the "OSI model", the vast majority of software applications will work perfectly without modification. Only software that makes changes to or makes direct use of lower-level TCP/IP functions will need to be replaced and this is somewhat rare.

CAnnot go internet automatically


Hi,

If you are connection to the internet is wireless try this:

Go to the properties on your wireless adapter. In the "This connection uses the following items" box, unchecked the
internet protocol version6 (tcp/ipv6) box. Most routers don't support this protocol. Unless you have a N router. Then restart your computer. That how I fixed mine.

Hope this helps.

Windows XP: How to release and renew IP addresses


IP addresses can either be assigned manually or automatically. When they are assigned automatically, a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server hands them out and determines which computer or other device gets which address. This process usually flows smoothly, but there are times when you may need to release or renew an IP address even when using DHCP.

There are several ways to release and renew IP addresses in Windows XP. Each procedure is described below.

From the system notification tray:

1. Right click on the network connection icon in the system notification tray.
2. Select Repair. Windows will automatically release the current IP address, reset the network connection, and request an IP address from the DHCP server. (The new IP address that gets assigned may be a different one from before, or it may be the same one.)

From the Start menu:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Right click on My Network Places.
3. Select Properties.
4. Right click on the network connection that is currently in use.
5. Select Repair. (If you choose a network connection that is not in use, Repair will be grayed out.)

For either of the above methods, you can release and renew your IP address manually by clicking Disable instead of Repair, and then right-clicking and choosing Enable.

From the command prompt:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Click Run.
3. Type "cmd" and press [Enter].
4. At the command line, type "ipconfig /release" and press [Enter].
5. Type "ipconfig /renew" and press [Enter].
6. Type "exit" and press [Enter].

There is an error in connect...........


If the error in connecting to the internet or to a LAN is prevalent with all network adapters, reset the TCP/IP Protocol stack byrunning the following command from the command prompt window:
1. Go to start menu and click on run.
2.Type in cmd.exe and press enter.
3.In the command prompt window,type in the command:
netsh int ip reset C:\connlogreset.log

The command will reset the TCP/IP protocol stack to it's defaults, and the reset data will be logged in the text document connlogreset.log.

If the above fails, disable any protocols that are not needed in the connection, e.g. SLIP(Serial Line Internet Protocol for Linux) as it's only used to connect to Linux servers in a LAN.
If using a broadband modem, disable NDIS driver wrapper from the GSM broadband client software provided with the modem, and update the software if possible.

HOW DO I BLOCK AN IP?...IM GETING HACKED, IT WONT STOP


The easiest means to block IP addresses in Windows XP is to use Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) filtering rules. The primary reason to block IP addresses is to protect your computer from network-based threats, such as computer worms, viruses and other malware. To block IP addresses in Windows XP, you will need to activate and configure IPSeccmd, the firewall that comes bundled with Windows XP. IPSeccmd does not come preinstalled with XP on your computer. It can be found on Disk 2 of your service pack upgrade or downloaded from Microsoft directly.



  1. Install IPSeccmd from your Window's XP Service Pack 2 installation disk.
  2. Step 2 Open the Command Prompt on your computer by selecting "Start > Run" from the primary file menu and type the word "cmd" in the blank text field that appears.
  3. Step 3 Enter the following command at the DOS command prompt to block a specific communication type (UDP or TCP) and port number on your computer:
    "IPSeccmd.exe -f [*=0:PortNumber:Protocol]
  4. Step 4 Open the user interface for IPSeccmd on your desktop, and select the "General" tab under the "Policy" section. Choose the "IP Block" option and enter the specific IP address of the host(s) that you desire to block. Exit the application when complete.
