I'm running XP Home, and trying to connect a Netgear DG814 (used previously on another PC). The setup connections seem fine and the lights are correct on the modem. But when I go to 'Network Connections', 'Local Area Connection' shows connected. Restarting the modem as instructed, however, changes the status to 'Limited or no Connectivity'

I recently reformatted and reinstalled WindowsXP, and used a supplied driver disc to download a Network Adapter - NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Controller. When I run Network Diagnostics it shows this adapter as 'failed' and the IP address as 'failed. Both Ethernet and SM Bus Controller drivers are also missing.

I am new to this and floundering. Any help gratefully received.
