I have just reinstalled windows xp on a HP a1268c and I can't connect to the internet. My Network card in device manager says it is functioning fine. However I can't connect to the internet at all. I have upgraded to sp2 with a disk I allready had. I have tried ipconfig and all I get in return is "Windos IP Configuration".

If you don't get a report on it, then Windows is not detecting your adapter as a network adapter, or possibly you don't have any network protocols installed. Open the Properties for "Local Network Connection" and make sure that Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is installed and configured correctly.
