I use Virginmedia Broadband and previoulsy I have been able to take the ethernet connection from my desktop P C insert it into my laptop and access the internet. Now when I try it the Local Area Connection on the taskbar has a yellow triangle on it and a message "acquiring network address" If I click the repair box I get a further message "renewing your I P ADDRESS" and there it ends with limited or no connectivity" Where do I go from from here. Thnaks for any advice offered.

I think this could be your firewall on the laptop.

Have you changed or updated it lately?
Have you tried switching the modem off and back on again?

Thanks for the the advice. Ethel and EMS86. I am up and running now. The trick of switching the modem off /on seemed to work. I booted the laptop with the modem plugged in after switching off and on and it fired up no problems. Thanks for your help. Cyrilbiker
