I've install windows XP freshly on a new HD. Before installation I disconnected the network cable, then installed, installed SP3 (I had the SP3 inst. file ready), installed Avast + updates, installed Subnet firewall. Then shut the computer down, connected the cable, turned it back on.
Went to Network Connections and spent a very long time trying to create a Local Area Connection. Don't seem to even have this option. Th wizard keeps leading me through not so relevant options and..... I just don't know what to do.
Help would be greatly appreciated....
Forgot to mention - I connect through a router that is always on, using a physical cable (ethernet they call it?).
