STATUS: no ip address, no subnet mask, no gateway, no details
Router is doing it's magic because I am typing on my little laptop right now into the WWW.
I need a few methods to fix this. Winsock Fix I tried it, no dice.
The yellow conflicts I SEE in the device manager are: in the Other DEvices tab include Ethernet controller, PCI device, PCI Simple Communications Controller and Video Controller (VGA Compat)
Network adapter tab shows 1394 Net Adapter
I have tried all that unistall and re-install tricks process for TCP/IP ; file and printer sharing for MS nets; client for MS networks.
and hungry. bad combination.
So I will be back.
