Thumbs down Tcp/ip

My brother just bought a new laptop about half a year ago...
and he is having problems with his wireless AND ethernet
internet connections...

Right when you get on his desktop, a window pops up saying:
TCP/IP network transport not installed

Since it is missing or not installed could you help us finding it?
or could we just install it again?

What OS?

Should be easy to install. Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs --> Left side you'll see Add/Remove Windows Components. Click that and find TCP/IP. Follow instructions.

Post back,

What tae said.

TCP/IP is not some separate program that you will see. Its a communication protocol (language) that is buried deep inside the computer. It allows different types of computers to talk to each other. The IP uses the address of your computer (hence the ip address). IP is like the mail sorter that sends your mail to the proper zip code. TCP verifies that the communication is complete and accurate.

If this computer has never been connected to the web or otherwise networked, you haven't installed TCP/IP yet or its not configured.

WB is close. You do go to the control panel, but you want NETWORK and INTERNET CONNECTIONS. Click on NETWORK CONNECTIONS, then LOCAL AREA CONNECTION, then properties. You should see TCP/IP. If not, double click on protocol, then TCP/IP. Then click INSTALL. You may need the OS CD-ROM.
Once installed, it needs to be configured. That is a bit more complicated. The manual from your ISP for the ethernet card and/or wireless card should have instructions for the proper settings.
