Hello, 2xg. Thank you for joining us. By assign static IP's I assume that is another way of saying I should set up a hardcoded IP address? Should I do this before bothering about : "- Verify that all your Network Services are Started from Control Panel and its Dependencies."

I opened Services. Did you want me to simply look and see if those Com + event etc. are listed or am I looking for other details within 'Services' ???

I'm sorry for the long wait, had quite a busy day today because had to work Sat all day 'again'.

Anyway, I see that a few smart SF Posters are already giving their feedback and they are all quite helpful. The Thread is quite long for me to read everything so I might have overlooked some of them. Please correct me if I'm wrong here... Your issue seems to be wired and wireless. You may try these suggestions if you have not done it yet.

- Assign Static IP's on both of your LAN and WLAN settings.
How to Assign a Static IP Address in XP, Vista, or Windows 7

- Verify that all your Network Services are Started from Control Panel and its Dependencies.
Click on the Start button and type services.msc press enter.
COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Server
TCP/IP Netbios helper
WLAN AutoConfig
Workstation

This is for now, we don't want to confuse you. Please be patient and try not to overlook any of our posts.

PS....If there's anything that's unclear to you regarding all our suggestions please do not hesitate to inform us.

No need to reapir the machine at a costly shop. Stick with SevenForums - we'll set you straight. Might take a while, but costs nothing.

Booted?

You have already booted your machine right?

In Windows Me, you can use the Automatic Private IP Addressing feature of Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) to assign a unique Internet protocol (IP) address to a network adapter. This may be useful if you have a small network that does not have a DHCP server. With automatic private IP addressing, you can assign a unique IP address to your network adapter by using the LINKLOCAL network IP address space. LINKLOCAL network addresses always begin with the numbers 169.254 and have the following format:
169.254.X.X
LINKLOCAL network addresses are used only for private, internal addresses, and are not valid for host computers that are "visible" on the Internet. They cannot be used for computers that are linked by Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).

After the network adapter is assigned a LINKLOCAL network IP address, computers can communicate (by using TCP/IP) with any other computer on the network that uses the same addressing.

My main confusion with the workaround tutorial you shared was not knowing which numbers to enter. Were you suggesting I use the numbers in the image, or?

By the way Rayda was suggesting the same thing plus more.

give me a few minutees to review 271

Okay, shall we try it your way for now? I can try the Services suggestion after we try the workaround. Sound good?

I'm back arayfo1....and ALL.

Check all the Network Services first if they are all started before assigning Manual or Static IPs, sorry if I wasn't very clear.

We'll guide you with assigning the Static IP if needed.
FYI.... I'll be around for a little while now and won't be going nowhere, done running around and I'm resting.

Edit: Is there any ipconfig/all output posted here somewhere? I can't find it.

@Slartybart, your help is greatly appreciated and you're doing a good job. Thanks!

So for example I go into services and click on "• COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)". Then what do I do?

Should I just restart all that you listed?

• COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
• Computer Browser
• DHCP Client
• DNS Client
• Network Connections
• Network Location Awareness
• Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
• Server
• TCP/IP Netbios helper
• WLAN AutoConfig
• Workstation
