I can't get this PC to connect to the 'net using a NIC card or the onboard LAN.
Motherboard - Gigabyte K8 VT800
CPU - Athlon AMD 64 3000+ 'Newcastle' - 2000Mhz
RAM - 2x 1Gb DDR PC3200
HD- 400GB IDE
GFX - NVidia 7600 GS 256 DDR3
OS - Windows XP SP3.
I'm confused about this problem. So if anyone can help.........
I've not had this PC long, and have only used it online with mobile broadband - a 'dongle'.
Using the dongle the internet worked fine.
The problem started after I got ''true' broadband at my house.
When I try to connect this PC using an Ethernet cable - I get the response 'Acquiring IP Address', and the connection gets no further.
In Device Manager there seems to be no problems.
If I install a wireless NIC card (and drivers), I get the same result - 'Acquiring IP Address'.
But with the wireless card fitted, in Device Manager I see 'No Network Controller Drivers'.
Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem?
