I have my laptop networked to my PC by cable. I haven`t used it for sometime and when I flashed the system up the other day I couldn`t connect to the internet or share files. The status of both connections says "connected" but when I click the properties of the connection on my laptop I can`t get to the page to tick the TCP/IP box. I have it on the PC but not the Laptop. Both systems are using Win XP so I`m bamboozled.
Can someone help please,
Martyn

PS If someone can explain HOW____ I will send a screenshot if required

If you have made not significant changes since it was working, then I would recommend running a System Restore. If not, then what happens when you try to get to the TCP/IP box?

If I right click the connection, a box appears which is not the one which I would expect to see. i.e. the one with the TCP/Ip button that needs ticking.
This is on the laptop.
I would send you a screenshot but it doesn`t look as though your site has the facility.
Hope this helps,

If you go to www.imageshack.us you can upload your screenshot there; it will give you the correct code to insert the image in to the form when you write your post.

On the PC that you can't tick the TCP/IP, you should try the following:
Arrow Click Start then Run
Arrow Type netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt and click OK
Arrow Reboot the computer and check the Network Properties
