Sometimes the TCP /IP set up in windows XP Gets a little confused or scrambled up, you can tell if this has happened by various symptoms, which are as follows:
1 When you open up your Network Connection there should be a Default Gateway, it will be something like 192.168.0.1 where do you see this, well double click on the left mouse button, where the little blue screens are seen in the task bar, choose the support tab,left click that and you should see an ip address a subnet mask and a default gateway....
2. Can you see the other Computers attached to the network...., or not, clearly if not, there is something possibly wrong with your TCP /IP Setup
3. You are unable to get an IP address and therefore can not connect to you router.
4. You No that your Roter is switched on, and you also know that your Router has a DHCP Server in it that gives out IP adresses, i.e. leases them out forr a period of time, but still you do not get one, an IP address that is...
What can you do, well there are various reasons why your TCP /IP Stack might be not configured correctly or not working correctly and there is a little utility that you can download to a memory stick or flash drive and run that may just sort things out...
Right So What is this utility that we mention:The utility that fixes connection problems to

your LAN is found here:

You need to download it. I am reasonably sure it is free of spywear and viruses, but to be on the safe side you should scan it with both anti virus and Anti Spywear software, that is up to date before you run the program, which is an .exe file, or executable file.

This little utility sorts out your TCP /IP stack and works well seems fast and can be ran from a memory stick, so thats convenient.
It is designed to work on Windows XP, so I guess it does not work for Window Vista?!
Thus if you want to sort out you TCP / IP with Vista You need another utility, what is that you cry, well we thought we would let you the
readers of the Computer Fixer Blog figure that one out....
