Hello,

My on board ethernet card works, but it doesn't work. When I put in the CD that my ISP gave me that tells me if I have a ethernet card or not, it says yes. It doesn't work though. I've tried uninstalling the drivers/reinstalling them. I've tried rebooting my system/modem. I'm out of things to try, if anyone could give me some guidance it would be really appreciated.

What is your exact problem? No internet connection?
In general, there is no reason to use any ISP CD.

My exact problem is that when I connect my computer to my modem, it doesn't work. It's not my modem either, because I got a new one.

Any errors in Device Manager?

1. Click Start>Run (Start>"Start search" in Vista).

2. Type in (or copy and paste):

cmd /c ping google.com>%temp%\$.$&notepad %temp%\$.$

and press Enter.

3. Notepad will open.

4. Copy all text in Notepad ([Ctrl-A], then [Ctrl-C]), and then post it (paste = [Ctrl-V]) in your next reply.

I'd say, your ethernet card is dead. Nothing unusual.
You can get new one for 10-15 bucks.
