Acquiring network address.

  Rizlo 21:30 07 Jun 09


Ive got BT vision box, and instead of using wall plugs to upgrade it, i use my laptop. i.e. ethernet cable from BT vision box to my laptop.

Anyway, today i did a system recovery on my Lap top, and when i plug in the Ethernet cable, it requires a network address.

How do i give the LOCAL AREA connection an address?

If XP got to internet options in control panel and click on connect to internet through a Local Area Network

you may have to go to network settings tcp/ip and set obtain ip address automatically
