Hello,

My LAN is working perfectly on my laptop however it will not connect to the internet when I use it on my desktop. The LAN is connected proberly and is sending packets it is not receiving any. I am using XP and when I enter network connections and select the LAn and repair I get the following message 'Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: TCP/IP is not enabled for thes connection. Cannot proceed'. When I right click on the LAN and select properties IAm missing information about tcp in the general tab..... what is causing this???

Hello,

Try this 1.

Go to the "Local Area Connection Properties" window ---> Click on the "Install"

button ---> Select "Protocol" ---> Click on "Add" button --> Select the missing

protocol and click on OK.

Good Luck.

Yes, click "Install..." in your LAN's properties window to add missing TCP/IP component, probably the system would need you to insert Windows OS CD to complete the installation. After that you can configure TCP/IP settings and connect to your network.

If you needs more reference, can have a look on this Windows Vista network card configuration article, hope this helps.

Thank you for responding to my problem, unfortunately when i try to add the protocol - Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 I receive the following message: 'Could not add the requested component. The error is: An extended error has occurred> When i insert the OS CD it states that it does not include any information about my hardware??
