Windows XP Mode connection problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can connect in XP mode to the internet using a static IP and gateway.  When I try connecting to our private work newtork it doesn't see the nic card from the host.  It is picking up DHCP instead. I have entered all the static IP, subnet and gateway of our private network and can access it from the host machine but XP mode wont pick up those settings.  It is set to work network with everything shared?

  • Try the methods mentioned in this link:

    “You receive an error message in Internet Explorer: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

    Step 1: If you still face the same issue reset the TCP/IP stack.

    One of the components of the Internet connection on your computer is a built-in set of instructions called TCP/IP. TCP/IP can sometimes become damaged or corrupted. If you cannot connect to the Internet and you have tried all other methods to resolve the problem, TCP/IP might be causing it.

    To do the same click the Fixit tool in the link mentioned below.

  • Hi,

    I'm afriad you will need to further explain your issue.

    You can make a connection from a Windows XP machine to the internet if you use a static IP and gateway on your machine

    If you use DHCP, you are unable to connect to the internet?

    Is this correct?
