auto config
I purchased my laptop with XP MCE pre installed. during the internet
connection setup, it auto configured the default MS IP. this is fine when
I am at work with the lappy. it will connect to the internet by way of
the new wireless system and thru the wired outlet as well. not so at home.
I want to use my highspeed conn at home and all I get it 'server not
how do I get past the current windows configuration? I tried to make
chances to the network adapter settings with no luck. I don't know what
to do next.
any help will be greatly appreciated. I want to stay away from work at
least one more day!

If your work ISP is DSL, then it's probably PPoE configured;

if your ISP at home is something like Comcast, then it's not configured as PPoE -- it's DHCP.

Did you try running the internet connection wizard again at home?

Try looking at the picture I've attached and make sure you have this last box checked, before you run the internet connection wizard again (for non-PPoE setup).


When you run the internet connection setup, you'll need to choose (Connect to the Internet), (Setup my connection manually), (Connect using a broadband connection that is always on), and hit finish; then try to reestablish a connection.
That is, if it's a DHCP server.

If it doesn't go the first time, right click on your network connection, and select (Repair); then retry Internet Explorer and see if it goes.

And of course, you're going to have to rerun setup for the PPoE connection(?), when you get back to work.

Did that get it?
