do you have a router or are you using dialup if you are using a router log into your router config page, it is usually type this into your browser and make sure wan ping blocking is not checked.failing this you could try typing cmd in the run tab from start menu then try typing ip config/all if this does not reveal the ip address im lost hope i can help.

You have to leave a space between congig and /all like this ipconfig /all

have installed the internet on a old pc but if i setup the router for my new computer and it still doesnt work will it affect the router settings if i plug back in the old pc.

will it still connect to the internet as before.

have tried the ipconfig / all.
it gives a load of info but still no ip addy.

then tried the config page but comes up cannot open search page.
i done both of these without the router connected would this make any difference.

will i need to install something or is it possible to reset the ip having to use my old computer till i get my newer one to connect.

i am wondering if something is missing after the computer had a bad crash and had to format and reinstall every thing again.

could i have forgotton to install something

Is your Network card loaded correctly ? Check in device manager to see if it is working Ok , or even if Windows has found it , and you won't get anything to do with IP addresses without the router connected , there will be nothing to give it one .

have been into the device manager and the network adaptor is working ok, the ones that have a mark next to them are,
multimedia audio controller.
pci simple communications controller.
sm bus controller.

have tried ipconfig / renew
what else can i do or is it possible to put the ip addy in manually.

Do you get the message saying " Network cable unplugged " or something similar to that , are you using the same router to connect to the internet with the old computer ? Have you checked the network card is configured to get an IP address automatically ?

yes using the same router/modem on both computers, but not getting any network cable unpluged message.
how do i configuire my card (SiS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter)
have got the ip addy for this pc, will this be the same for the other pc and if so can i put the ip in manually.
