Setting up a peer-to-peer network. Using my laptop, at XP Pro sp2 and updates/patches, I have no problem accessing the Internet. I'm doing it now as I type. Standard private IP/NAT setup with router gateway. Details: Network: 192.168.1.0/24 Gateway: 192.168.1.60 Static IP assignment (very small network with legacy issues) On a network PC that's about six years old (!) running Win XP Pro without any service packs or updates, I can't get out to the internet. Ping doesn't even seem to work, for cryin' out loud. I d/l sp2 and am installing it now, but I'm at wit's end trying to figure out why this machine won't connect. Local loopback is fine. I connects fine to an AS400 using TCP/IP. It can print to an existing printer. I checked, there are no static routes foobaring anything up. Nothing in the HOSTS file. No other devices on the network with the same addy as the gateway.........HELP!
