motherboard model: Ali Alladdin Pro
Chip set model: ALI M1621 Aladdin Pro II AGP Sysetm controller
South Bridge: ALI M1533 Aladdin IV ISA Bridge


I hope this info helps.

Well where did you get the laptop? If it is new try the place you bought it. You could also try Acer's website... although I only see a travelmate c200.... Also what Os are you running? You could also check the setup ( reached by f1 or f2 usually but look at the bottom of the screen on bootup ) to see if maybe the lan/network is turned off...

Download Everest from this link :
http://www.majorgeek...wnload4181.html

Run everest then click on the Report menu. Select Report Wizard, then select Hardware Related pages. Create the report as a TXT file (if this option is available). When its finished compiling, save the report & then attach it with your next post.:.

Well I may have missed something but I didn't see any network other than a wireless network card in the list. One reason he told you to use everest is because everest will usually find a device even if windows doesn't know what it is and many programs simply ask windows for what is installed... does it list anything in the device manager at all? does windows know there is something there even if it doesn't know what is there? have you tried checking setup to see if the network/lan connector is even turned on? What happened when you tried running everest?

hmmm...everest is only showinig a WAN/PPP adapter...which tends to suggest that you've installed software for your internet connection? it's not listing a specific NIC card at all...and the acer site (which sucks) isn't listing a travelmate 200...let alone a NIC driver for it

Yeah It looks like it's not detecting any nic.... are you sure it's enabled? Since it is a laptop it should be in bios if it can be turned on and off.... you usually get into "setup" by pressing f1 or f2 on a laptop. look for anything labled network or lan adaptor. IF not and windows doesn't have something ( even an unknown device ) for it in device manager, I'd say it isn't working..... it's pretty hard to get something to work even with the driver if windows isn't seeing it at all.... Oh and from you PM a picture probably wouldn't help as it's usually pretty hard to id the chip for a nic....
