I am doing a new install of windows xp x64 on a clean drive , on an asus m2n-mx board, using the built in nvidia network card, to a dlink router using a home network.
here is what is happening.
I am getting no connection coming back.
ip is setting correctly <and have tried both auto and set ip adress>
and the machine does show up in the dhcp setting on the dlink router when looked at from another machine on the lan
ipconfig comes back with the correct ip address.
cannot connect to the dlink <192.168.0.1>at all.
status shows that packets are going out, but nothing is coming back.
ping to the dlink is lost in the etherrealms.
have tried turning the firewall off, as well as adjusting as many things as I can think of the get it working.
there is nothing else installed on this drive except the windows programs and the drivers for the mother board.
all of the settings are the same as they are on the winxp pro version i was running<or if there is a difference I can't find it>
I know that the hard ware is working properly because i can boot this machine into the windows xp pro version and get perfect connectivity.
What else can I look into , or what else can I do to see if I can get this thing working?
If you have any more questions I will do my best to answer.
