Computer not sending or receiving


M

Mark A. Sam

Hello,

I just reinstalled XP on a computer. Prior to the installation, it had no
problem connecting to the network or internet. The connection status
reports, "Connected", but no packets are sending or receiving. The ethernet
light blinks and I used another cable to be sure that wasn't the problem.
The connection properites dialog show:

Client for Microsoft Networks
File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
Internet protocol (TCP/IP)

Thanks for any help.

God Bless (for believers),
Best regards (for non-believers),

Mark A. Sam

Disable Client for Microsoft Networks and add Network Monitor Driver . Also make
sure that your Ethernet card is configured in LAN\Properties\General. When set make
sure you hit Apply and back out. Reboot computer(very important)
Let us know how you made out

Peter,

I found that the drivers for the ethernet controller are not installed and
the only option seems to be to download from the internet. The weren't
found on the Windows install CD. This is strange because I have use this
same Cd to install Windows on other machines without an problems.

Install it from there (LAN Properties) It will install a generic driver which will
be good for you to go

LAN\Properties\General\Configure\Driver

You are already there if you are looking at the connection
properties - look at the top of the General tab, and there is a
Configure button to the right of the network card. Although, what
Peter wants you to do in there, I can't say.

I don't have the machine, I took it to someone to look at, but there was a
driver configured for a device called the 1394 net adapter. There is no
option anywhere (I am looking at the properites for one of my connnections)
that says Install. There is an Update button, but requires an internet
connection.

1394 net adapter has nothing to do with your issue and that is not your ethernet.
Download the driver as I posted

I'd like to, but I don't what you are referring with the path:
LAN\Properties\General\Configure\Driver

There is nothing in the connection Properties dialog with the word Lan or an
Install Driver facility. Should I be looking somewhere else?
