I formatted my computer using windows xp CD. After formatted i try to connect to the internet using static ip address. The status of the connection is saying "connected" but when i try to use internet it says "can not find server".
I tried it using different browsers like Firefox, opera, and internet explorer but it can't work. the other computers with in the network are working fine.

Question: How can i connect my computer to a given network or LAN?

Can you take a screenshot of your static ip configuration? – kobaltz Aug 25 '12 at 12:39
Is this still an issue? – Dave Aug 31 '12 at 11:15

go to Run,write services.msc and then restart the DNS client by right click and restart service and if you want to get dynamic ip , restart the DHCP also from the same list of services
