Hi There,

I got windows XP on my other computer run sweet az, now i wonna connect it up to get on the net and b able to lan with the other computer.

i put in the cd for the router to install... i get to step 6 i think it is
and then it tells me it can find a "lan interface" something :S
and says something like "no TCP protocol (TCP/IP) plz make sure
u have installed it and router is powerd on" something like that anyway =\

if anyone would care to take the time to explain wat i need to do and how
to do it i would really appreciate it :tazz: ;) also how would i setup a
the other computer that has ME on it so i can get files and lan games with
the xp one?

Any Help Would B Much Appreciated ;)

Screw "installing the router" You dont need to do that, thats just extra junk that will bog down your computer. You should just be able to plug your computer into the router and it work. Sounds like you might be having problems with your network card. Its not disabled by any chance is it?

Go to Control Panel, Network Connections. If there is a network connection listed then right click it and click properties. Next click the "Install" button and select "Protocol" from the list. Click the "Add" button. Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) from the list and install it. You may need your XP disk. Also before doing this check to see if it is already installed in the list before clicking the "Install" button right after clicking properties. If it is then highlight it and click "Uninstall" then install it again.

Yes, XP should automatically recognize it and install it. Try opening your case, and remove it. Reboot. Shut down the computer, place the card back in and reboot. Then if XP doesn't recognize it you probably need a new card. Maybe not though, we can try to search for drivers. Write down any words, numbers, etc.. that you can find on the card before replacing it.

What is the make and model of your computer? If we get that then we should be able to download the network drivers for that particular pc.

Hey, I used to have that one. Take you Asus cd and reinstall the network drivers. Everything should be fine.

Well you're on the net right now... Just copy them to a disk, cd, thumb drive, etc... Then bring them to the pc. Here's the driver's download page for your MB.
