I have this toshiba laptop, windows me, 750 mhz with 192 m ram, connected to web on insight cable bb. Recently did a clean reinstall, and had trouble. Did get it running somewhat right finally.
Anyway, now it does not sense the network or ethernet port, (not sure really what it is called, but it is like a phone connector, only wider.) I had to connect to my RCA model DCM425 cable modem with the usb port. (the original problem after the reinstall was "explorer caused an error in <unknown>" when I tried to add the cable modem. I could <i>only</i> make it work right by using the usb port and adding it before zonealarm firewall.
Okay so anyway, what do I need to do to turn that back on?
When I plug everything in it does not automatically sense it. When I try to search for new hardware, it does not find it, & I do not know what the thing is called to manually add it. There is no RCA or thompson cable modem on any list of add hardware that I can find.
It defineately worked before, so I doubt it is really "broken"
