Can't change Computer Identification


R

RanMan

I am logged in as the local Administrator and I cannot
get the XP system to join our domain. In the system
Properties page under the Computer Name tab, both the
Network ID and Change buttons are greyed out. There is a
message at the bottom that reads "Note: the
identification of the computer cannot be changed
because: -networking is not installed or is not properly
configured." Any ideas???

I have tried removing the network adapters and letting
them reload but it is still acting up.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

As I said I am logged in as the local admin and the
buttons are greyed out so I can't even get to the point
where I enter the domain name.

Try this, Randy......

Reinstall TCP/IP on a Windows XP Compute
In Windows XP, the TCP/IP stack is a core component of the operating system; therefore, you cannot remove TCP/IP in Windows XP.
Install TCP/IP on top of itself
In Control Panel, double-click Network Connections, right-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.
Click Install
Click Protocol, and then click Add
Click Have Disk
Type the path of the Nettcpip.inf file, and then click OK. Typically, the Nettcpip.inf file is in the C:\Windows\Inf folder
In the list of available protocols, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click OK.
Restart the computer.

When the computer restarts, the Winsock and the Winsock2 subkeys will be functional

The following worked for me
right click my computer,
Properties,
Hardware,
Device Manager,
Expand "Network Adapters"
Right clock on your NIC card,
Properties,
Power Management,
Un tick "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
Click OK
Reboot and try again

Cheers
