Ok . . . now where do I go with these files? There is no setup or driver files, only 2 text files and 3 rtlnic.sys rtlnic64.sys and trlnicxp.sys. Double clicking brings them into Word and it isn't pretty.

Windows has finished installing an updated driver for your hardware device.

Whoo-hooo!

Still can't connect though. Still getting strange "Internet Explorer could not open the search page" when I typed www.yahoo.com and www. purple.com

Realtek (device manager): device is working properly
Driver Date: 3/4/2005

And now I should?????

Sorry! Don't know how to delete that oops! The screen didn't move, then it posted too many times.

I connect through DSL.

Now . . . There is a router on the incoming line, going to the modem, which in turn is connected to the ethernet jacks throughout the house. All I do is plug my ethernet cord into the jack in the wall. I know all of that works, because I'm online with my son's computer at the same jack.

Basics means ? ? ?

Generally, the ip address is one digit off!

Laptop is .4 and desktop is .3
