WINS Addresses;

             what is this, and should i be running one

                            bc im not :

WINS = Windows Internet Name Service.

This is for resolving NetBIOS names into IP addresses.  Since most ISPs block NetBIOS ports (usually 135-139) due to hacking exploits, it should not be necessary unless you are setting up a NetBIOS network in your home....which also should not be necessary.

If you are looking under the WINS tab of the advance TCP/IP options in XP, check the box for "enable LMHOSTS lookup" and set the NetBIOS setting to default.

But you definitely need to do as Swimmer suggests and get the MAC registered on the ISP network.
