I'm trying to run the netdiag command to troubleshoot the internet connection but when I run it in cmd I get the following message:

'netdiag' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Also, I have tried typing "net diag", which gives me a syntax error, but that NET command seems to be something completely different.

Searching on google for answers gives me results that deal with Windows Server 2003; I'm on a Windows XP machine.

nediag is w2003 specific. Win XP does not include it, but if you detail your problem (with connection) someone may be able to suggest alternative tools for you. –  wmz Oct 9 '12 at 9:38
    
I see, do you think I should start a new question or should I edit and update my current one? –  Mohamed Abobakr Oct 9 '12 at 9:56
    
I would just edit current one –  wmz Oct 9 '12 at 10:08

NETDIAG is great for diagnosing windows domain issues, but I am wondering if perhaps you are looking for "NETSH" - the command line utility for troubleshooting and configuring network connections?
