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?
