Specs: cannot connect to internet. ip unreachable, subnet invalid, dns unreachable
I am running windows xp with service pack 3. I ran diagnostic and it said wireless-service disabled. I got in cmd and pinged the loopback, that sent/received all packets. Then I pinged my ip, subnet, and dns. This is what I got:
Ip address unreachable
Subnet invalid
Dns unreachable

my wireless connection says its connected but I receive dll.dnserror even when I try Microsoft.com

Open the command prompt & run ipconfig /all
Post the output here if you don't understand it.

The wireless adapter is not getting an IP address. Look at the device manager to make sure that the driver is installed & that the adapter is enabled.

How much more detail do you want? You have to look at the device manager. Did you do that?

Right click on my computer, left click on properties, hardware & device manager. Look for red or yellow marks next to network adapters.

"Ip routing enabled...:yes"
this is a wrong setting

Appears you have a number of issues.

xxchazindreamzxx do you know how to web search?
google device manager xp

See if you can find in the results of that search how to access device manager.

You can also go to Help and Support off your start menu with the same search criteria.

This gives you the ability to find answers when you don't understand a term or some property of windows.

In the meantime can you connect directly to your modem or router with a patch cable. You do have a modem or router for internet access?

We also need you to follow instructions. It was requested you post the results of an ipconfig /all. What you posted is missing information because you only did a ipconfig.

Please post the ipconfig /all. Thanks

Looks like whatever you connected to is setup to give you invalid entries which is why you are having the experience you are.

clue would be doman.invalid.

Connect to a different free wifi spot. There does not appear to be anything wrong with your wifi card or xp

have you ever successfully connected to one of these before?

might want to check your browser security settings as well as firewall settings. Appears https and ftp are not blocked but http is.

In services is workstation service started?

Earlier this month I had no problems connecting to anything. All firewalls are the same as before, internet settings I'm not sure of how they are suppose to be set.

In what services? I've never seen anything about workstation. How do I get to that menu?
