A friend of mine gave me an XPS 400 that had windows media edition on it. It was all messed up from his step daughter so i decided to wipe it clean and install my copy of xp pro on it.
I managed to get all the drivers that were missing off dell.com and also upped the bios to the newest version.
Currently everything seems to check out fine. The device manager shows every thing to be running cool and the video card is even recognizing my 42 flatscreen tv and adjusting itself (SWEET!)
The only problem is when i plug the cable modem in it's not connecting. It searches for a min or two and says there are issues with the connection. It's currently set to auto detect but I am at a loss as to what the problem maybe.
When i plug the modem into my laptop it is detected no problem so i do have access to the net so i can piggy back files on an external drive.
The modem is a toshiba PCX2500.
Anyone have any ideas to where the problem is?
