Hey guys I just got a new computer and I had to reinstall windows Xp pro now Iím installing all the new drivers but I can't seem to get the computer on to the internet I keep getting some error like "unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out." I have no router I got a Rj45 going start into my comp from my modem, I did the Ipconfig /release /renew and that error came up, also I just downloaded the drivers from the MSI website for my MSI K9vGM-V mobo and I got a big rar file with lots of small files and idea to how I got about installing this hoepfully this might resolve some problems any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Few solutions include:

1) Have you tried pinging a website??

2) Checked physical connections

3) Is the ethernet icon representing your connection in "My Network Places" disabled?

4) Is your broadband connection to your ISP connected up properly?

Hope this helps.
