    I have a Dell from '02 running Windows XP Professional on it. Our family
    recently got high speed internet through AT&T. My laptop connects to it just
    beautifully, but the Dell doesn't. When I open 'available networks', I can
    see that there ARE bytes being sent and received, however when I open a
    browser, it says that the internet is unavailable. I spoke with ATT support,
    and they asked me to run the ipconfig / renew command. I received an error
    that said it tried to execute a command on something that is not a socket, or
    something along those lines. I was directed to Microsoft help which in turn
    brushed me off. Desperate for help!! Any assisstance???
