Why is my computer saying no connectivity when I try to connect to the internet?

I think we need some more information to help you.

How are you connecting to the internet? Do you have a ISP issued modem/router? Do you have a personally purchased router?

Go to a command prompt (click select-Run- type cmd and press enter). Once you are at a command prompt type ipconfig /all and post that information. If your IP address starts with 169.254.. and a subnet mask of then your IP address was assigned by APIPA and not your provider/router.

If you get another IP address then here are some things to check...

this is a loop back test. If you get results than you have TCP/IP protocols installed.

ping x.x.x.x (your actual IP)
if you get results back than you have a routing table or network driver issue.

ping x.x.x.x (your gateway IP address)
If you do not get a valid response then you may have issues with cabling, network adaptor, or the router or gateway device.

This should at least get you started. See ms kb 314067 for more details.

Open command prompt and do ipconfig and make sure that you are getting a valid IP address .
Default gateway should be if you are not getting valid ip address then check if your ip is assigned manually under TCP/IP properties .It should be obatin an ip address automatically .
Also make sure that modem is connected to modem port .
Also try to disable all firewall from your computer
If you are getting valid ip address and then try to ping in command prompt .check if your getting any replies .If your are getting replies then it could be issue with your Internet explorer settings

Let me know if it doesn't work .Feel free to send me a mail

Jim84 win32 application

so the ping is working as its supposed to. shouldn't even be there.

the cmd file may be missing or corrupt replaceing the file would most likely fix the problem. I can send you a copy of my cmd.exe file from my windows xp professional

was that the problem or is there something else?
