Hi
I have been using usb for my broadband and i wish to use ethernet instead to free up usb space.
The problem is whenever i plug in the ethernet cable, my computer doesn't read it.

I had a look through device manager and under other devices, Ethernet Controller and RAID Controller both have a yellow question mark next to them. Does this have something to do with it? How do I get ehternet working?

I have a Asus K8V Deluxe motherboard with windows xp

First install the Ethernet drivers from the motherboard cd,
On the Ethernet Controller right click and click update driver
if you don't have the cd let the search go on line to find drivers.
once you have ethernet working simply delete usb modem and usb lead,
With ethernet connected it should automatically find isp
