I was currently using two computer the problem is the one that using win2k(but the problem has occured to winxp too). after I tried to add a protocol in this land which is "NWlink IPX/SPXNETBIOS COMPATIBLE TRANSPORT PROTOCOL" a question mark appear in the LAND icon saying problem with the connection, and i realized that the ip in the status becomes 0.0.0.0 , i use the repair function, it becomes 169.254.xx.xx instead of originally 192.168.2.101, I used the setup of the original cd but it saying time out and tell me to reset the router, I did it hundred times but don't seem to have any progress. I ran the installation on another computer(this computer) it works. but that one still don't, even i ran it again in there. this problem had happened before, I formated it, than it work normally again is there any way I can do instead of format? I had tried anything i can, but was useless, and it seem to me a big problem(that i can't online),can anyone please provide me any help? thanks very much in advence.
