Diagnose XP Network Problems

Network problems can be quite difficult to solve and may take considerable effort and technical expertise. Two guides we recommend:

The Windows XP SP1 Network Solver

The Windows XP SP2+ Network Solver (and Vista)

If these manual approaches are too much effort or difficult for you, there are several software products that can do most of this work for you.

Fix the network connection. Assuming the physical or wireless connection is working, have Windows attempt a repair:

For Windows 7:

  1. Right-click on the network icon in the toolbar.


  2. Select Troubleshoot and repair.
  3. Windows will attempt to repair the connection.


For Windows Vista:

  1. Right-click on the network icon in the toolbar.


  2. Select Diagnose and repair.
  3. Windows will attempt to repair the connection.


For Windows XP:

  1. Right-click on the network icon in the toolbar.


  2. Select Repair.
  3. Windows will attempt to repair the connection.
