cannot change the TCP/IP properties

I am receiving a message that I must enable and configure
a local area connection when attempting to change the
properties of the Internet protocol. My local area
connection is enabled and I can surf the Web and my
network but when I attempt to change my IP address or do
anything with the Internet protocol properties I get the
message you must enable or configure a local area
connection.

Please reply to this message in the news group (not by E-mail) with
more information to help other people understand the problem.

Since your local area connection is enabled and you can surf the Web
and your network, why do you want to change the properties of the
Internet protocol?

Does your computer have more than one local area connection? Are you
trying to change the one that connects to your network?

What exactly are you clicking to change the Internet protocol
properties? What is the complete and exact text of the error message?

Steve I appreciate your reply to my message, but I am an
MCSE+I and I don't appreciate the fact that your reply
made it seem as though this is the first time that I have
worked with XP. By the way if you right click on the local
area connection and select properties and then highlight
the Internet Protocol from the list of protocols and
services you should be able to click on properties where
you could change IP Addr, Default Gateway, DNS, Wins, and
the like. But when I clilck on properties I am posed with
the message: Exclamation icon, "In order to configure
TCP/IP, you must install and enable a network adapter
card." Which this is totally out of the box when in fact
my local area connection is working and I able to surf the
Web and my Network.

It sounds like there's something wrong with the Network Connection.
I'd remove the NIC in device manager, and re-boot.

Let XP re-install the network card, and re-create the Network Connection.

See if that helps.
Certainly shouldn't do any harm.

I'm sorry if I offended you in my attempt to help -- it certainly
wasn't my intention. There was nothing in your first message to
indicate your level of experience with networking, and many beginners
post questions here.

I agree with Ron Lowe's suggestion to remove the NIC and re-install
it.

I have onboard LAN card installed and using Windows XP pro with service pack 2 . some 20 days back everything was working fine. but couple of days back when i tried to change the IP address assigned to the NIC(network interface card), i received the following message
"You do not have suffiecient privileges for accessing connection properties. Contact you administrator".
This messege keeps coming even when i am logged in as administrator.

I rightclick the "Local Area Connection" and click properties from the context menu and the above message pops up.
I uninstalled the network interface card and rebooted my PC and XP automatically detected and installed the hardware but the problem is still there. i cannot acces the properties page of my local area conncetion.

Please help.

Thank you! I had the same problem (not able to edit tcp/ip v4 settings), I uninstalled the network card, rebooted, and then I was able to put in the right dns settings and connect to my domain. :)
