I have 3 ways that I can connect to the internet, dial up (way too slow on this computer) and eithernet cable is plugged in and flashing green, and a usb wireless adapter with my network. all of these methods worked before I wiped the system and now only dial up works
I go to hardware>network I see the linksys wireless G adapter (model WUSB54GC) but it has a yellow ! net to it because the driver is not installed, I tried transfering the driver from my other computer but it says it need internet access to install, how ironic...
my ethernet car shows up and it is green and has no yellow ! mark next to it, it's called NVDIA nForce Networking Connection, (model under systeem info says HP EN1207D-TX PCI 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adapter)
so I go to network setting in control panel and it says that the NVDIA is connected under local area connection 2, but internet explorer won't connect or aol, so I right click repair and it says it's renewing the IP address and then it stops and an error message says it can't renew my IP address, bleh.
I tired to go into run and put in IP /config and IP /renew or whatever like some sugessted but the black window just shows up for a split second and then closes.
I downloaded the HP driver again and tried to install it, but it said it installed and I would find some whatsnew.doc on my computer that would show me how to install it...?
this is a fresh windows XP and I tested the wireles adapter and ethernet cable on my other computer and they worked, they also worked before the refresh someone help me please and thank you!
