1. are you even connected to the internet? are you dial-up or broadband? are you behind a router?

2. what's your NIC card? are you sure you hve the right drivers loaded for it?

Does it actually matter whether its Dialup,DSL or cable... its just a result of the ping command.... Well still if you need it.. its Win Xp and i'm using a Dialup... no Routers... no NIC's... no Firewalls...

umm, also check if XP's firewall is on (sorry don't know how to check it, don't have XP) and if the modem's drivers are loaded. that's all i can help. anyone else?
