On my old desktop I haven't had internet access for 3 months, I asked advice on many other forums but nothing is working really. Ok the issue is that I downloaded Driver update software and decided to update my drivers that way, not only it didn't work but now when I connect my network cable to my PC it doesn't read it and there's no connection. I am not a pro in this things so yea, would just like to have my desktop with internet access back. Any help is appreciated.

My operating system is windows 7 32 bit.
Mainboard:
Manufacturer: ASUSTek Computer INC.
Model: NoDusm3 1.05
Chipset: Nvidia 6150 (replaced by Radeon)
SouthbridgeL Nvidia nForce410/430 MCP

When I try to connect my cable the blue circle is spinning where connection icon is. Then when I go to: Identify the problem it tells me that I should unplug my router/modem for 10 seconds, did that numerious times but then it always says: Local area connection does not have a valid IP configuration.

Just the gfx card has been replaced, when I bought it the one that was already on motherboard didn't run any games so I bought Radeon.

As I thought but had to check as the chipset and video card are two different things.
Have you checked in the Device Manager for any items that may have a yellow ! or red X next to them.
Your MB drivers are available @ http://www.nvidia.co...8.26_11.09.html do you have a way of downloading them to a USB memory stick or burn to disk.

Yes I am on my new desktop right now.Tried to reinstall the drivers, same thing happens. Same problem (Local area Ip adress not configured, network cannot be identified) I also tried disabling Bonjour service - didn't work, one thing that I didn't try is disabling and then re-enabling the NIC through bios. Not sure how that would fix this problem, maybe the Network card is just messed up and I need to go pick up a new one. And no yellow/red marks in device manager. Thanks for response though.

Go back to your Device Manager, right click on the network adapter, choose uninstall, reboot the computer and see if the hardware wizard detects the device and if it does reinstall it.

Uninstalled it, when i re-boot pc -> says new device discovered and installing drivers, then says identifying network -> network cannot be identified -> Local area connection -> Local area Ip adress not configured,

This is wired cable, so when I plug it into my new desktop it works fine, cannot be problem with router.

Have you set up the device in the Networking and Sharing Center by right clicking on the internet icon bottom right of the taskbar, this is how you enter your network key and any password or ID number which will open a gateway/port on the router.

Sorry going to have to call it a day now as it is nearly midnight in the UK and I am up for work at 6am, good luck and I will check back tomorrow.
