I have broadband and have recently been upgrade by NTL to 2mb. I don't think that has anything to do with the problem but thought it might be worth mentioning.
The problem is that within the last 2 weeks i have started having problems. When I turn on I get a message saying I have 'Limited or no connectivity' so cannot access the internet. the computer is asigning a 169 IP address but won't repair it - it says try speaking to your internet provider.
I did speak to them and the guy told me he ran a test and it wasn't the cable, it was my PC. He got me to go to run and type 'CMD', and then type in a command which I can't remember all of -it contained 'Catalog Reset'.
Anyway that seemed to work but now it's playing up again.
The NTL guy said it's a window's XP issue so if it persists I have to get it fixed. Is this correct? Can anyone help me here.
I run a P4 3.06GHZ on XP with SP2 installed. Had that installed ages ago with no problems at the time. Don't really want to have to totally re-install my PC if I can avoid it.
