    Internet Problems (Bootcamp related)
    I just recently installed windows xp on my powerbook and everything works fine, except I cannot connect to the internet.

    I have no problems with the internet when im MAC OSX.

    When I run ipconfig to determine the ip address and other netwrok info, nothing comes up. When I try to repair the network I get the following errors:

    "Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection"

    There also seems to be some problem with the DHCP server?

    I've tried almost everything including turning off the firewall and messing with the settings.

    The network does appear and there is a transfer rate of around 300 mbs, but no packets are sent or recieved and no IP settings are given.

    If no one knows the problem, is there an easy way to delete the windows xp partition and try again?

    Moved: Since this is a Bootcamp-related question, it should go in the bootcamp forum.

    I had problems when I installed my router in Windows XP and this helped.

    Even if you can see the network connection, make sure that all the services listed in point 2 are running. Hope this helps.
