Error 769

Specs: Windows XP
Hello,

I've just installed Windows XP on a computer that was previously wiped clean. I'm now trying to connect to the internet (DSL) and I'm being told that The Specified Destination is not Reachable. I've gathered that there is a problem with the Network Adapter, however Device Manager tells me that it's enabled and working properly. Anyone have any ideas as to what could be the problem?

Check the patch cable at both ends. You may need to use a special crossover type cable from the computer to the modem.

Thanks for the reply, but I'm using the same cable on my current (working) computer and I can connect just fine. I think it has to do with the network adapter, but can't get it to work for the life of me.

Where are you seeing this error? Do you see the LAN Connection in Network connections? Is TCP/IP set for DHCP?

If so, open IE and enter 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. Make sure that PPP is up.

Try uninstalling your network adapter but before uninstalling try and find the latest version.
