I had to do a repair on my system and now when trying to log into the 'net it hangs on "Acquiring Network Address". The message also says that I am connected to my network.

During the repair install I got a message that afd.sys can not be found. The CD is the original and things used to work.

I did ipconfig from the command prompt and got back that the wireless media is disconnected. Device manager says the wireless adapter is working properly.

TIA for any help

Go to Start/Run and type SFC /scannow and press enter. Put the XP CD in and it will take any files it's missing from the CD.

Make sure you are using the correct password/passphrase set in your wireless router. If you can't connect wrelessly, try using an ethernet cable and see if you connect.

This didn't work Got SFC/scannow not found etc....

Probably time to retrieve what I can and format and start over? Luckily it is a test system that I try new things on. Maybe it was a good thing I tried something on it first.
