Not working right again :)

There are a few computers hooked up to the same thing, and they work fine.

Please try to be more descriptive in your answers. Have you tried to set the network with fixed addresses?

Are there other computers connected to the same router? Are they working well?

One way to fix such problems is to create a local network, give each computer a fixed IP and disable DHCP in the router.


Yes, there are other computers connected to the same router, and they are working fine.

How would I give each computer a fixed UP and disable DHCP in the router?

Sorry, you seem to have dropped off the radar screen so to speak :)

Please try this. Go back into Device Manager, where you previously did the Update Driver, only this time, select Uninstall. That will delete the network card as far as XP is concerned. Now shutdown and reboot and wait a bit. XP will rediscover the network card and reinstall the driver.

See if that makes any difference.

One thing to keep in mind, there may be a problem with the network card itself and replacing it may fix this problem. If you have another computer, you can borrow a network card from it and replace the one in this computer, then boot up and see what happens. If XP doesn't have a driver for that specific card you will need to download it from the internet and install it.

Alternatively, you could try the network card from this computer in a different computer, see if the same problem occurs.

Well, I uninstalled the network card, and now my internet is working. I shall update if anything happens.

OKay, well I restarted my computer due to being the next day, and now my internet is not working again.
It gave me a prompt to find the driver to install, so I closed it.
I then went to get my drivers CD, and installed the nForce driver.
Restarted computer again, and didn't work again (same problem as before).
I kept disabling and enabling it, and then it came back on. But I'm sure once I restart it will be down again.

What is the make and model of your computer? Is it a laptop or a desktop? What is the full name, as shown in Device Manager, of your network card. I can see it's a Nvidia something or other and uses the nForce driver but please give me the full name, thanks.
