I have a desktop running winxp. about two months ago we moved it to a new location. We keep it working because certain software we use does not run on win 7 or win 8, This machine has a dual boot wet up with linux and win xp. linux boots connects to lan and internet with no problems. Win xp connects sees network card but will not connect to lan or the internet.

Tried Ping 8.8.8.8. Response is Ping is not a valid command. Ipconfig /renew /etc. returns one line " Internet configuration".

What the heck is wrong with this thing. Other machines on the lan cannot see this machinne.
