Setup: We have a server running Win 2008 server and each user has an account so they can log into their account using any computer. I installed reinstalled Windows XP pro on a computer and installed all the drivers. Everything looks okay in device manager, but when I connect an ethernet cable, I have no internet and it says "limited/no activity" and I can't access the internet. I tried to have windows repair it, but then it says "local area network doesn't have a valid IP address. Do I need to be part of the domain and logged in to use the internet? Anyways, I went into ethernet properties and IPv6 is not checked, V4 is checked and in the properties for it, its set to obtain the IP and DNS server address automatically. All the computers are set the same. I tried entering the domain information and all that, but it doesn't work. I took pics of the settings before and it doesn't work when I put it in. So I have a couple questions: 1. Do I need to be logged in or any computer I plug in should be able to access the internet? 2. How do I fix it so I can enter the domain information so I can set it up where I can log into any user from this computer?
