    If I remember correctly windows SP3 added some additional firewall functionality. I would temporarly stop any of your firewall related services and see if that fixes your internet connection. If it does you may need to tune your firewall settings because that is probably what is causing your connection to the internet to fail.

    Make sure your network drivers are installed and then run the Internet Connection Wizard!

    You're probably missing drivers. I use a software called DriverMax and it will allow you to download any missing drivers.

    You probably turned off your WIFI signal. Sometimes it's a touchpad above the f keys.
